Not very long ago a young friend of mine asked me why America has to be the world’s policeman? I told her the answer was two fold and simple…Islam and preservation of Western Civilization.
Let’s discuss Islam first.
Any discussion of Islam has to start with it’s violent nature and history. Violence is at the very core of the religion and violence is something true believers have to adhere to. The Quran requires violence of all Muslims and leaves them absolutely no choice in the matter. Quran 9:5, Quran 9:112, 8:39, 8:65, 9:38 and 47:4 are all examples of this and there are many others as well. In fact, there are at least 109 verses in the Quran espousing violence, especially against non believers, many of them very graphic. No, Islam is anything but a peaceful religion. Violence is it’s central dynamic and violent men and acts are revered and venerated.
Here is some other basic information.
Islam’s purpose is to destroy all non-Islamic societies and to have everyone on earth live under Islamic rule and Islamic law, Sharia. Again, this comes straight from the Quran and there is no room for interpretation or dissent. The Quran is the literal word of God (Allah) as revealed to his prophet, Muhammad, and it is to be obeyed, not questioned or challenged.
There is no respect or tolerance for people of other faiths or beliefs in Islam. Non believers are seen as enemies of Allah and must either be forced to submit, killed or used for some Islamic purpose. Islam does much more than disdain non believers or see them as unworthy. It is unalterably opposed to their existence and justifies any act that leads to their conversion, subjugation or elimination. After all, non believers are infidels and beneath contempt, nothing more, and fair game for anything.
There is no concept of the separation of church and state in Islam. The Quran is seen as the highest authority in all matters and Muslims are required to live under it’s guidance and authority, even if this contravenes civil law or the customs of a secular society. Everyone must submit to the dictates of the Quran, regardless of whether these agree with the law of the land or not. Islam means submission and a true believer is one who submits. There is no such thing as a true believer who doesn’t submit to the demands of the Quran in all matters, even if it means they cannot conform to civil law or practice.
Islam permits lying under certain circumstances. Lying in Islam takes one of two forms, taqiyya or kitman. Taqiyya is saying something that isn’t true and kitman is lying by ommission, telling only part of the truth. Both are rooted in the Quran and may be used against non believers as circumstances arise.
Under Sharia, people who insult Muhammad or Allah, desecrate the Quran or commit other acts of blasphemy are to be killed. Mocking, criticizing, doubting, indeed anything that can be taken as lacking respect or not being suitably deferential may be seen as insulting and result in death. Muslims get upset and angry if Muhammad or Allah are treated as anything les than divine and perfect and Islam makes their response obligatory. Freedom of speech or freedom of expression simply does not exist.
Islam is a religion that is frozen in time. It has no ability to evolve or progress or develop. The Quran is the perfect, immutable, unchangeable word of Allah as sent down to man through the Prophet Muhammad. Man must live according to it’s dictates or suffer terrible consequences. It is perfection personified and not following it’s instructions is proscribed and viewed as disavowing and attacking Allah. There is no freedom of choice for true believers. Unconditional submission to the will of Allah as laid out in the Quran is mandatory. Since the Quran came into existence in the mid seventh century a.d. Muslims are, in effect required to live according to a 1300 year instruction manual that has gone virtually unchanged in all that time.
Two more points before we go on and discuss America’s role as the world’s policeman.
Islam is a religion of hatred and insularity locked into a seventh century mindset. It’s raison d’etre is conquest and turning the world into an Islamic caliphate. It is completely uncompromising and violence is it’s calling card. Anything that serves an Islamic purpose is condoned and any action by a Muslim has to be seen in this context, especially if that person is devout.
Terrorists, Islamists, Jihadists or any other Muslim who commits atrocities in the name of Islam have not hijacked the religion or misunderstood or distorted it’s doctrine. Theologically, they are absolutely correct. This is one of two reasons why Muslims in general don’t refute their behaviour. Theologically, they haven’t got a leg to stand on. There is also a fear factor. Because of the nature of Islam their lives and the lives of their families could easily be in great danger if they did, which is something even ordinary, non devout Muslims are well aware of.
Let me close this section with three quotes, one from Churchill, one from Ghandi and one from Geert Wilders.
Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. No stronger retrograde force exists in the World. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step(…) the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome. 1899.
While Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Parsees, and Jews, along with several million adherents of an animistic religion, all coexisted in relative harmony, one religion that would not accept compromise stood out from the rest: Islam.
Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t have a problem and my party does not have a problem with Muslims as such. There are many moderate Muslims. The majority of Muslims are law-abiding citizens and want to live a peaceful life as you and I do. I know that. That is why I always make a clear distinction between the people, the Muslims, and the ideology, between Islam and Muslims. There are many moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as a moderate Islam.
And now, on to America….
The question we began this with is “why does America have to be the world’s policeman?” The answer is clear….someone has to be if Western Civilization is to survive and no one else has the strength or resources or mentality to carry out this role globally. Regardless of whether you recognize it or not there is a war going on between Islam and the West and the United States has to lead the West because it has the most powerful military on earth along with moral authority that is second to none. It is also the only Western country that is secure enough in it’s own skin to take on the role.
What a policeman really does is protect and only the U.S. can protect Western Civilization around the world because it is the only country strong enough to do so. Islam is seeking to destroy Western Civilization and rule the world and the West is fighting to prevent this and survive. What other country is more representative of Western Civilization and has the muscle to defend it? Who else is supposed to lead us, the Brits, the Germans, the French? Canadians? Come on now. There are any number of observers who believe that Europe is already lost and that it will become an Islamic continent in the next generation or two. Londonistan in 2030 anyone? There is also a large and growing group of people who understand that Islamization is a serious threat in North America as well and that Canadians don’t have the wit or strength of character to stop it.
And no, I am not being apocalyptic or alarmist and all you have to do is open your eyes and look around to realize this. Look at what Islamization is doing to countries in Europe and how it has fundamentally changed the nature and character of the continent. Look at the inroads it is making in Canada and the United States and at incidents that have occurred on Canadian and American soil, including mass murder, murder and attempted murder, mass and otherwise, attacks on the cultural fabric of the two countries and constant demands for change and accommodation. Look at the violence that is perpetrated against Westerners and their institutions in the name of Islam every single day throughout the world. Look at the Middle East. That’s not apocalyptic or alarmist. That’s reality.
Islam and the West have been implacable foes for centuries and that is why America has to be the world’s policeman in this day and age. No one else can get the job done. Our survival and the survival of Western Civilization depend on the Americans. Without putting too fine a point on it, if not for them you’d be in a burqua and I’d have my head chopped off.
Thanks to the Islamization that has already occurred here I might get my head chopped off anyway or some such thing. Look at what happened to Theo van Gogh in Holland and don’t think for one minute it can’t happen here too. In fact, don’t think for one minute it isn’t happening here.
Hope that answers your question….
