In the wake of the Friday, November 13 jihad attacks in Paris, France, an intellectual alarm has gone off in parts of the civilized world – sort of. I say sort of, because there still seem to be just as many people who do not perceive Islam and its Shariah law as a threat to Western Civilization’s freedom as there are those who have begun to awaken to what’s really gone wrong with the so-called religion of peace – and do perceive the threat.
Of course, regular readers of this blog have known for a long time that Islam is not a religion of peace. It’s really a theo-political system of totalitarian governance. Separation of church and state is not within the realm of comprehension or acceptance in the Muslim mindset.
The Western World, steeped as it is in Judeo-Christian values and the democratic principles of parliamentary governance, is under siege, literally in a life-threatening situation. We are under attack by an ideology with which we truly have never come to grips. To this day very few Americans have much knowledge or understanding of Islam.
For a large part of that grotesque lack of knowledge and misunderstanding we can thank George W. Bush, who led us down this primrose path by and through his mendacity about Islam’s true nature, to the brink of our impending self-destruction. Given the benefit of the doubt, by excusing Bush because he listened to the wrong people, he still never took another look at Islam after his original assurance to the world that it is a religion of peace. He never questioned what his original advisors told him, even in the face of repeated jihad attacks which were in stark, irreconcilable opposition to what he’d been led to believe.
Like so many other non-Muslims throughout Western Civilization, grasping the idea that perhaps the entire World of Islam could be at war against us, now and forever, until we surrender, was probably too much for Mr. Bush to attempt. It just could not be true. The thought was too immense and horrible to contemplate. Perhaps Mr. Bush thought about that idea – that there just could not be one and one-half billion Muslims who had been raised from the day of their birth to believe that Islam should rule the world. It couldn’t be possible – could it?
Perhaps he never did think about it. I don’t know. There were certainly very knowledgeable people available to him who could have enlightened him as the worldwide jihad movement continued to unfold. Mr. Bush never sought their counsel.
Finally, fourteen years after nineteen soldiers of Allah brought America to the brink of collapse with those hi-jacked airliners as guided missiles, with France bleeding profusely today, a few minds are beginning to see the light and are trying to save us from the savages who would enslave us. However, as a Constitutional Republic we have a major problem in protecting ourselves from the hostile takeover that is currently in progress by the World of Islam.
There is a major flaw in our Constitutional system. The Framers (bless them) were totally unprepared at the nation’s inception, and gave no consideration, as to how to deal with this fatally metastatic ideology, Islam, particularly during the construction of the Bill of Rights. Who among them could have dreamed in 1789 that someday in the not-too-distant future, nine, ten or eleven million Muslims would be living within the boundaries of the United States – hiding behind the First Amendment, while forcibly demanding that the Constitution be bent and broken to accommodate the dictates of their Shariah.
Had these very smart and learned Framers ever envisioned the day when the barbarians of the Muslim empires would move to the New World and begin to establish the hegemony of Islam, perhaps they would have more carefully written that First Amendment, behind which Muslims are now hiding as they execute Muhammad’s grand plan.
I don’t know.
The First Amendment is written directly to the Congress. It is very specific. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is already parroting ideas we’ve heard from Islam’s many defenders, that there can be no religious test in deciding who comes here, who becomes a citizen, who runs for public office and who becomes President.
Looking at Islam as strictly a religious issue, the defenders of the Constitution are correct. Passing such a law is not allowed.
The problem in passing any legislation designed to protect us from further invasion by jihadis is going to be how on earth to convince enough legislators, judges and other public officials that Islam is much more than a religion – before it swallows us alive. Because we are about to be swallowed alive.
We are in a hell of a spot here. It is high time to stop all immigration, regardless of country of origin. Our survival depends on it.
