In Defense of Western Civilization
Want an example?
Yesterday, a guy who calls himself "Hitler" was elected to the Palestinian Parliament. In addition, a man named Marwan Baghouti, who is a convicted mass-murderer, was also elected. These facts are mentioned in passing in the Associated Press articles, but they ought to have the headline.
Arab culture is so sick, and rife with anti-Semitism that men like David Duke are revered, and broadcast on National television as heroes.
The BBC publishes glowing, emotional eulogies about men like Yasser Arafat, who in his Palestinian National Charter, calls for the destruction of the entire state of Israel. Oh, by the way, that Charter is on the official United Nations website, so the UN is in on this blitzkrieg against knowledge.
Soldiers re-up because they believe in the war they are fighting, but the mainstream media does not report it. Instead, they broadcast on the national news about anti-war protests which only attract 12 people.
Our enemy is so evil, they rig children's toys with bombs, and yet it doesn't make the national news.
Did you know things like this were happening? No, because the media downplays this stuff. There is a sense in which we are live in an Orwellian reality. It seems possible that the media is made up of people who are anti-war by nature, and thus oppose America's war in Iraq because of Pacifism, not because it is an unjust war.
Pacifism is an illegitimate political philosophy. It is a beautiful personal philsophy. One ought to try to live peacefully. But, when whole nations of people are threatened, only people who are totally lacking in compassion would say that we shouldn't fight to defend them.
Should the Jews have sat back and let Hitler do what he did? Gandhi thought so. Here's a quote:
"I would like you to lay down the arms you have as being useless for saving you or humanity. You will invite Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini to take what they want of the countries you call your possessions...If these gentlemen choose to occupy your homes you will vacate them. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourselves, man, woman and child to be slaughtered, but you will refuse to owe allegiance to them."
"I am as certain...that the stoniest German heart will melt [if only the Jews] adopt active non-violence. Human nature...unfailingly responds to the advances of love. I do not despair of his [Hitler's] responding to human suffering even though caused by him."
That's right, Gandhi advocated that the Jews turn themselves over to Hitler. One must ask oneself, what would have been the difference in result if one follows the philosophy of Hitler or the philosophy of Gandhi?
The answer is nothing. Millions of people dead, either way. Gandhi's philosophy was irresponsible, and yet, he is held up as a hero in our culture. Once again, this is largely the fault of the media. Hollywood produced a glowing biopic starring Ben Kingsley, which depicted Gandhi as a devotee of peace. But, his peace would leave millions dead.
Here's a couple more important posts:
A Muslim Member of Parliament has attacked the “Muslim reluctance to tackle the contradictions in Islam. The problem lies in the Quran itself”, he said. “There are contradictions in Quran; we have to stop avoiding them. If you find the Hadith literally, you can kill and maim as many people you can."
The Fu2rman has some very important questions for Muslims about the 72 Virgins they get for being martyrs. Read it, you will laugh. I guarantee it.
