Response to a commenter about what Muslims believe

Jimi writes:

I disbelieve media analysis that these terrorists are somehow radicalized by visiting random ISIS websites. The radicalization comes from family and religious groups. The ISIS websites finish the process by urging radical beliefs be converted to radical actions.

As I am sure I explained before, Islam is a fundamentalist religion. All Muslims believe that the Koran is the true and literal word of God (Allah) and that Mohammed was the most perfect man and people should follow the examples he set. And the Hadiths and other sources about Mohammed’s life, although not the true and literal word of God, are nevertheless believe to tell the true story of Allah. Nearly all Muslims really really believe this and it’s what they are taught at Mosques and religious schools. There is no major branch of Islam that believes that the Koran should not be taken 100% literally. This is something that liberals (who don’t personally believe that there is any religious text that’s the true literal word of any divine beings) simply cannot understand.

However, Islam, like all other religions, historically existed—or was appropriated for the function—of serving the elites. Law and order benefits the elites, but people deciding on their own to commit jihad, that doesn’t benefit the elites, so that stuff was not taught to people. Most Muslims, like most Christians, non-Orthodox Jews, etc., are too lazy to read the Holy texts themselves and they let religious leaders tell them what they are supposed to do in order to be good Muslims.

However, since all Muslims have been primed to believe that the Koran is the true and literal word of God, and that Mohammed was the most perfect human and men should live by his example, they are extremely susceptible to groups like ISIS who teach what the Koran really says about jihad, and how Mohammed really lived. And based on the texts of the Koran and the Hadiths, ISIS is correct, or at least they have a very legitimately correct textually-based interpretation.

All Muslims are extremists, they admit it

“Destructure” recommended this video. It’s only 3 minutes and 22 seconds. Worth watching.

Obama’s FBI is following Donald Trump’s advice

When Donald Trump recommended that we take out the families of terrorists, the liberals became outraged.

But isn’t that exactly what the FBI is doing with respect to Omar’s wife? Technically she may have been an “accessory” because she drove him to scout locations knowing that he was talking about jihad, but really she was just some stupid weak-willed women easily coerced by her dominant husband. Her main transgression is marrying the wrong person. But how could she have known she was marrying a future jihadist? The FBI themselves investigated Omar twice and failed to find him to be a significant terrorist threat or a criminal.

The FBI, nevertheless, is going to prosecute her to the maximum extent. Life in prison? Even the death penalty? The FBI wants to deter future terrorism. And the FBI wants revenge, and they can’t get revenge against Omar because he’s dead. Obama’s FBI is following the same moral code for which Donald Trump was condemned.

The hundred thousand jihadists among us

According to the NY Times, there are “up to 10,000 F.B.I. terrorism investigations open at any given time.”

And remember that Omar was not an open investigation; although investigated twice, both times his investigation was closed.

This number reveals the scope of the problem. There are at least 100,000 sympathizers of jihadist Islam if you consider investigations that were closed and the likely fact that the majority of these people were smart enough not to publicly proclaim their support for jihad and attract the attention of the FBI in the first place.

Why have there been so few actual terrorist attacks if there are so many radical Islamists in the country? Because they are chicken. Because their lives are too comfortable to throw it away. Because the FBI has actually done a good job of preventing like-minded jihadists form getting together or from receiving instructions from outside of the country. But because of the principle of copycatism, after San Bernardino and Orlando, it’s inevitable that there will now be a lot more of these types of lone-wolf Islamist jihad incidents, and there’s a good chance there will be another one before the election in November.

Also, you can’t blame the FBI, at least not the low-level agents who actually do the real work, for failing to catch Omar before he went jihad. There are thousands and thousands of Omars out there and there isn’t a fraction of the manpower needed to have an agent assigned to follow around every one of them.

Trump was right again, other Muslims knew

Trump has gotten lot of hatred from liberals for saying the following in his speech yesterday:

But the Muslims have to work with us. They have to work with us. They know what’s going on. They know that he was bad. They knew the people in San Bernardino were bad. But you know what? They didn’t turn them in. And you know what? We had death, and destruction.

But today we learn that the wife knew he was going to commit jihad, and although she tried to talk him out of it, she did not call the police.

Who else knew what was going on?

* * *

By the way, the wife was stupid for telling that to the police. Otherwise they wouldn’t have known, but now they have her own admission of guilt and you can be sure they will prosecute her because they want to prosecute someone and Omar himself is dead. If your spouse commits jihad, you should refuse to talk to the police and lawyer up immediately.

Gay Islamic guido, part 2

New York Post article about the ex-wife’s interview with Brazilian TV:

Her fiancé, Marco Dias, speaking in Portuguese on her behalf, said Yusufiy believed that Mateen had “gay tendencies” and that his father had called him gay in front of her. Dias also claimed “the FBI asked her not to tell this to the American media.”

Big question: why did the FBI ask her not to tell the gay stuff to American media?

I believe he attempted to atone for his sinful (as he believed it, and according to Sharia law) homosexuality by committing jihad.

Garr writes in a comment:

Yes, in Bay Ridge the Muslim men have adopted the guido style (as have the Chinese, Ukrainians/Russians, and Ukrainian/Russian/Bokharan Jews). It’s interesting how compelling this style is.

* * *

Meanwhile, in Paris, there was another ISIS murder, of a policeman and his “partner.” (All of the news reports say his “partner” was killed, I have no idea what that means.) The killings were done with a knife.

I disagree with Trump’s assessment of guns. If it were as easy to buy a gun in France as it is in the United States, there would be weekly ISIS massacres in France. In the United States, we just have the good fortune that there are fewer Muslims and they are not as radicalized as they are in France. France allowed their country to become 10% Muslim and now they are paying the consequences. And Obama and Hillary want to make the United States more like France by letting millions more Muslims move here. That’s why it’s so important to vote for Trump.

Islamic guido ashamed of his homosexuality?

I am starting to get the impression of Mateen as an Islamic guido who was ashamed of his homosexuality. He was actually no more into Islam than the typical guido is into Catholicism (but that does include regular attendance at Mass), but that was enough to give him a religious basis for the massacre.

More info about how gay Mateen was. A gay Islamic guido.

Trump’s greatest speech


(Skip ahead to 16:03 for the beginning of the speech.)

From an oratory perspective, closer to his worst speech. Trump was not good at reading from a teleprompter. He did a better job at the AIPAC speech. Trump has been wise to avoid teleprompters and adlib, but today he needed a prepared speech, and content-wise, it was a home-run speech.

It was a speech that no other Republican politician would have given, certainly not Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush. Those morons at National Review said that Trump is not a “real conservative,” but I guess their definition of a “conservative” is someone very slightly less liberal than Obama or Hillary Clinton except they are also pro-life and in favor of tax cuts for the top 1%.

Trump cited some facts about Islam that were talking points taken from right-wing blogs and websites that no other Republican politician would have dared say.

Trump emphasized that our immigration policy must be for the benefit of America.

He even said that the reason why wages haven’t increased during the last two decades is because of too much immigration. That wasn’t the emphasis of the speech, which was mostly about immigration as it relates to security. But I think it’s really important that he put that in there and connected immigration to unemployment and stagnant wages.

He loves the “LGBT community.” Their freedom to do whatever they want sexually is a core part of our American values. Who would have expected that from the Republican nominee for president? Will he be able to peel off the LGBT vote from Hillary?

He attacked political correctness.

He wants to hold the American Muslim community more accountable for the terrorists that occasionally spring forth. I agree 100%. Only if we hold them accountable will they change their behavior.

And of course, he attacked Hillary and Obama for allowing so much immigration from Islamic countries and for trying to increase it.

Trump has truly changed the entire language of the debate. That’s why I write about him so much. I just can’t help it. Trump’s candidacy is the biggest thing politically to happen to American since FDR. It doesn’t matter if Trump, himself, is a bozo who operated a rip-off real-estate scam “university.” Trump beating Hillary and becoming president is the only hope for America.

Read the transcript of the speech.
