Radical Islamic Fanatics And Their Leftist Apologists In The West

It is by no means an accident that the Islamic nations of the world are so starkly different from — and inferior to — the western democracies. Excepting recent developments in Turkey and Bangladesh, they are, and have always been, autocratically ruled by either royal families or military backed dictators. These nations have no concept of a separation of religion and state as every Islamic government, including the so-called secular ones, are dominated by degrees of Shari´a or Islamic law. The Taliban of Afghanistan is only an extreme example of this pervasive tradition.

Baath Socialism in Iraq, Syria, and Libya incorporate a toxic amalgam of Islam and Socialism similar to the German Nazi combination of new age neo-paganism and socialism. Islamic nations have no defined concept of separation of powers, an independent Judiciary, private property, free enterprise, free speech or free press. Non-Islamic minorities, called "Dhimmis," are allowed to live at the whim of the state as long as they submit to second-class status and pay a yearly extortion. This way they are allowed, in most cases, to live yet another year without converting to Islam. Islamic defenders refer to this system as an example of Islamic tolerance.

The lack of individual rights and freedoms has stifled any significant development, from the Islamic world, of great art, music, literature, cuisine, invention, technology, or industry. There has been no move toward the development of a middle class. The vast majority of capital remains controlled by the oligarchies as the common people continue to live in poverty with its attendant disease, mal-nutrition and suffering.

The only significant production from the Islamic world in modern times has been that which is extracted from under their desert sands, namely, oil. Primarily American and European oil companies do the extracting. The oil companies purchase pumping and refining rights from the oligarch, who than uses the colossal profits to further his regime and live lavishly and ostentatiously in most cases. Islamic oil profits are presently being used all over the world to further an extremist Islamic agenda. That agenda recently bore fruit in lower Manhattan, Sept. 11.

Of the thirty odd armed conflicts presently existing in the world, about twenty five involve aggressive, well-trained and well-financed Islamic militants. Islam teaches, as an article of faith, that Muslims are commanded to conduct Jihad against the infidel until Dar es Salaam, or a world controlled by Islam, is achieved. Islam teaches that since there is only one true god, Allah, there can be only one true religion controlling the planet.

The international left is playing the role of apologist for the Islamic extremists, and, implicitly, their attack on the twin towers. This supporting role by the left is motivated by two essential factors. The left resonates with, as an article of their own "scientific" faith, Islamic propaganda regarding western blame for the poverty and suffering in the Islamic world. The atrocity style propaganda is skillfully and adeptly marketed by spokespeople such as Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, and their crew of Islamist apparatchiks.

The left can´t admit that American and western economic success inherently emanates from our system of private ownership and individual freedom. To do so would require them to repudiate their own authoritarian and aristocratic faith. They explain western prosperity with the bizarre conspiracy theory that western nations and companies are successful because they "exploit" the Islamic countries. They blame us, simply as evidenced by our success, for the poverty in the Islamic and communist world. They refuse to consider the inherent corruption of "public ownership of the mode of production" which is both the dictionary definition of Socialism and the actual political systems in Islamic, Communist, and most third world countries.

The second factor also stems from the political faith of the left, which requires a rejection of capitalism and individual freedom. America is the most successful capitalist nation in history and, as a result, presents the most implacable obstacle to the world order designs of both Socialism and Islamism. Both recognize that in order to achieve success in their respective world order projects, America must be ultimately destroyed. Their anti-American propaganda is a desperate attempt to keep their starving people from exposure to American ways. This is why the Islamists foment anti-American riots celebrating the destruction of the twin towers while leftists justify the attack with their pseudo-sophistic jargon as they secretly salivate with envy.

Leftists never hated Religion, they just hate Jesus. Any religion other than Christianity is OK with them. They support unlimited immigration of Muslims to America, but oppose white immigration.

I wonder if they realize that the goal of Islam is to subjugate the world. If they think that the Mohammedans will have mercy on them once they take over, they are sorely mistaken.
