The terrorist attack in Westminster was just the latest in a long line of atrocities committed internationally in the name of Islam. No continent (except Antarctica) is free of Islamic terrorism – for obvious reasons.
We call them ‘terrorist’ attacks, but terrorists usually have a measurable political objective. For example, the IRA wants Northern Ireland to become part of the Irish Republic.
The late and un-lamentable Martin McGuinness only persuaded the official IRA to give up overt terrorism after the 9/11 attacks in America. They knew the funding from the USA would dry up and the US authorities would take a new and entirely different view of their activities.
Nevertheless, the IRA’s terrorism did succeed and they murdered, bombed and terrorised their way into the Northern Ireland government. So, let’s stop pretending terrorisms never wins. It can and sometimes it does.
But what do Islamic terrorists want? In most cases, like yesterday’s, they have no obvious measurable objectives. As far as we can tell all they get out of it is martyrdom and 72 virgins waiting for them in paradise.
To try and make sense of it we need to understand what ‘Islam’ is really about.
- First of all, let’s stop calling it Islam (submission to the will of Allah) and accepting it on its own terms.
- We should return to calling what the West used to call it: Mohammedanism –the cult of Mohammed – because that is what it is.
- It is a death cult, born and steeped in fourteen hundred years of violence and bloodshed, that propagates itself by intimidation, violence and conquest.
And yes, I know, that Mohammedan terrorists kill as many of their own co-religionists and as they kill non-believers, or ‘Kaffirs’ as they like to call us. That is because they are considered the wrong type of Muslim.
The terrorist yesterday was a Mohammedan ‘literalist’: one of those who read the Koran and take literally the bits that say ‘kill non-believers, make war on non-believers, strike terror into the hearts of non-believers’.
The terrorists are the van-guard of Mohammedanism. They set out to cow the non-Mohammedan population, so that the ‘moderate Muslims’ can get on establishing Sharia courts, forcing halal food in school and works canteens, and making the authorities look the other way regarding criminal activities for fear of being called racist and Islamophobic.
A phobia is an irrational fear. A normal non Mohammedan should have a perfectly rational fear of ‘Islam’.
The question is: what is our Government going to do about it? Or will they take the Mayor of London’s view that terrorist attacks are just ‘part and parcel of living in a major city’.
