The Long Awaited Islamic Reformation

Liberals, Leftists, Conservatives, Neo-Cons, Neo-Liberals, Islamists, Pan-Islamists and everyone else concerned keep speaking of a long awaited Islamic Reformation.

Actually, that Reformation has already began and is ongoing. Except that Islam is going from a slumbering megalith to an extremist controlled ideology. Islam began a long sleep sometime in the 1700-1800 era. It went near comatose after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Two things occurred to awaken Islam:

 
1. (a) The Brits made a deal with the devil and helped to create Saudi Arabia and (b) FDR made the Wahhabist scum a US protectorate in exchange for oil making Saudi Arabia one of the richest shit pot nations on the planet.
 
2. (a) Israel declared Independence in 1948 and (b) whipped Arab Muslim ass in 1967.
 
Since those two dates, Islam has slowly awakened.
 
That “Great Awakening” was quickened during the Soviet Afghan war when we, the US, brought Saudi Arabia into the mix and gave the Paki ISI the go to give monies to whom they would. The Pakis and Saudis funded the most extremist elements of the Afghan combatants.
 
The US said…Oh, we’ll just let things run their course after the Soviet hightailed it out of Afghanistan. Things ran their course. The Saudi Wahhabists built mosques and madrassahs all along the FATA and NWFP. They took in war orphans. The Paki ISIS needed a hedge against India and, just in case, Iran.
 
Thus was born the Taliban.
 
Prior to all of this, you have the US educated Qutb who created the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muzzie Bro’hood spawned every extremist group on the Sunni side.
 
Iran’s great Shi’a Revolution? You can thank Allen and JD for that. Oh…there was a Roosevelt in that mix as well. 26 years later…BOOM! The Iranian Shi’a Revolution brings the nutjob Khomeini to power thanks to a pacifist doofus named Jimmy.
 
The seeds to all of this were planted by US shortsightedness and ignorance of the Middle East, its people and culture as well as the megalomaniacal hubris of Post World War II America .  Americans are “exceptional” and, therefore, can’t be bothered with history or culture or anything that might call into question our exceptional lack of foresight.
 
We’re genius like that.
 
I reckon the MCIC knew that the Soviets would fall eventually and needed some reason to keep hysteria rockin’ and rollin’ in the free world.

Conflict in the Middle East predates Islam by thousands of years. This region is a crossroads of history. Traditions of hate, violence and war date back to before the Greeks and Persians to the earliest stories of the pre-Phoenician peoples. Expecting “Peace in the Middle East” One may as well search  for the burial place of Genghis Khan. Find one; you may find the other.

*********************************************

None of this is to say that the United States or Britain is to blame for Islamic Extremism. Islam was born in blood. It will die in blood. Islam was spread via conquest. Muslims and Liberals love to deny this. However, the Islamic Empire spread from Medina to Andalusia (Spain) in an amazingly short period of time. None of these territories invited Mohammad, Abu Bakr or Uthman into their lands. Islam did not quietly knock and ask for admittance. Islam rode at the head of a world devouring empire. People “submitted” to Allah not because they suddenly saw the light. They converted or “reverted” because it was the prudent thing to do. If you were given the choice between conversion, death or high taxes and second/third class citizenship in your own lands, most would choose to convert.

Islam is a violent Abrahamic religion. All three of the religions spawned by Abraham are violent and full of blood lust — Xtianity, Judaism and Islam.

The Extremist Muslims are following the path of previous Muslims including that of Mohammad. Denial of this is denial of historic reality.

Islam is violent. It also knows peace. However, like Xtianity, the majority of the religions is about purifying the world and making it ready for God/Allah via force.

Same God, same violence, same hatred for the non-believer. Muslims choose which path to follow. Those who choose violence choose that path regardless of outside influence. They would choose that path even if the US and Britain had never existed as neither existed when the Islamic Empire first invaded Europe, Africa and Asia.

The McSanctity of Life!

https://i0.wp.com/z.about.com/d/politicalhumor/1/0/1/V/iraq_mcdonalds.jpgI do not believe that life is sacred.  Merely being born does not make one worthy of life nor does it make one entitled to a good life or an easy life.  I believe that it is up to each individual to make their life sacred.

I’ve often asked the question and very rarely been answered, but, who defines what life is sacred.

Whose life is sacred Mother Theresa or Hitler?

Genghis Khan or Alexander the Great?

Xerxes or Ceaser?

Attila the Hun or Aetius, Master General of Rome?

Mahatma Gandhi or Kublai Khan?

Ted Bundy or Ted Kennedy?

Jeffrey Dahmer or Charles Manson?

Mussolini or Charles De Gaulle?

Pol Pot or Ho Chi Minh?

Singh Man Rhee or JImmy Carter?

Teddy Roosevelt or FDR?

Chiang Kai-shek or Mao Tse Tung (Mao Zedong)?

Josef Stalin or Leon Trotski or Vladimir Lenin or the Romanov family they murdered?

Was the life of George Patton more sacred or less sacred than that of Erwin Rommel?

The lives Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. Jackson who were two of the most pious and religious American Generals were more or less sacred than the lives of Grant and Sherman. Sherman who supposedly said that the only good indian is a dead indian and was the author of modern day total war.

The Monk in Southeast Asia who studies Buddhism and teaches by his example yet does not believe in Christ as his savior. Sacred or no?

The Hindu Brahman? Sacred or no?

The Roman Empire and it’s millions of souls. Both the murderer of Christ and the main vehicle by which Christianity became THE primary religion of Europe. Had there been no Ceaser, there’d have been no Constantine.

And in the end, we live our beliefs. America says it believes in the sanctity of life even as we demand higher profit ratios and cheaper sneakers and nicer houses at cheaper prices. These things all come at a high human toll.

Yet, life is sacred?

It’s a good thought that is seldom put into action.

We invade Iraq because it has oil which is the grease of the capitalist machine. Then we stand idly by and watch as genocide occurs across the African continent.

There is nothing sacred about it. We love the sentiment. It makes us all feel better. Jesus and his words of Faith, Hope and Love. Christians who worship the man, yet, ignore his words.

Personally, I think Jesus would be ashamed of Christendom.

Life is as sacred as a Super-sized Big Mac Menu Meal.

The McSanctity of Life.

America has proved this time and again.  We preach human dignity and self determination even as we support dictators who are willing to do our bidding.  We preach self determination even as we have a distinguished one hundred plus year history of deposing democratically elected governments in the name of corporate profits.

Before one of you morons calls me unAmerican or a “blame America firster,” you might want to read a little history.  Start with Chile and Guatemala.  It’s a world tour.  Next stop, Vietnam and Iran.  Come on back home and read a bit about Honduras, Panama and Cuba.  If you know nothing about these chapters of American history, speak not to me.  You’re a blind and ignorant fool.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end”
