Check out my latest for Breitbart:
"What Islamic Supremacism Really Is" Pamela Geller, Breitbart
It starts with the Qur’an. In October 2011 I was on "Hannity"
debating Muslim activist Michael Ghouse. On the show Ghouse presented
me with an enormous Qur’an, courtesy of the Hamas-tied Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR): The Message of the Qur'an, Translated and Explained by Muhammad Asad. Ghouse is a “moderate,” and this is supposed to be a “moderate” translation.
In it, Allah says to the Jews who “profaned the Sabbath,” “Be as apes
despicable!” (2:65). And as for “women whose ill-will you have reason
to fear,” the Qur’an says: “admonish them [first]; then leave them alone
in bed; then beat them" (4:34; the bracketed word is in the book in
this and all other quotes). This “moderate” Qur’an translation says that
Allah has “disowned” the “hypocrites” — that is, people who pretend to
be Muslim but aren’t really, or who were once Muslim but leave the
religion. It says that if they “revert to [open] enmity,” the Muslims
should “seize them and slay them wherever you may find them” (4:89).
Muslims should “fight in God’s cause against those who wage war
against you, and do not commit aggression, for, verily, God does not
love aggressors. And slay them wherever you find them”
(2:190-191). Don’t commit aggression, but slay them wherever you find
them. Right. Muslims are supposed to fight against those who have
“denied the truth” until “there is no more oppression and all worship is
devoted to God alone” (8:39). So now Muslims have to fight unbelievers
until everyone worships only Allah.
Muslims are told to “fight against those who — despite having been
vouchsafed revelation [aforetime] — do not [truly] believe either in
God or the Last Day, and do not consider forbidden that which God and
His Apostle have forbidden, and do not follow the religion of truth
[which God has enjoined upon them], till they [agree to] pay the
exemption tax with a willing hand, after having been humbled [in war]”
Those who have been “vouchsafed revelation aforetime” are the Jews
and Christians. The “Apostle” is Muhammad. So Muslims must fight Jews
and Christians until they have been “humbled” and pay a special tax.
So Muslims are supposed to beat women whose “ill-will” they “have
reason to fear,” and kill those who wage war against them, and
hypocrites who are in open enmity against them, wherever they find
them. They must also fight against and subjugate Jews and Christians.
Muslims who pray the required five daily prayers curse Christians and
Jews no less than 17 times. Every day. It was no surprise, then, in May
when, Breitbart News
reported that “family members of Navy SEALs who died on duty in
Afghanistan claim that an Islamic cleric ‘damned’ the servicemen’s
bodies at their memorial ceremony.” They were, after all, non-Muslims.
That’s Islamic supremacism.
The history of Islam is the grim record of how this supremacist
mentality has played out, and the brutal conflict it has caused. The
Middle East was once a Christian region. Now, with the exception of
Israel, it’s Islamic. Egypt, Syria, and other Christian lands were
brutally conquered, and the non-Muslim populations subjugated. When the
caliph Umar invaded Syria, he gave this order:
“Summon the [conquered] people to Allah; those who respond unto your
call, accept it [their conversion to Islam] from them, but those who
refuse must pay the jizya out of humiliation and lowliness. If they
refuse this, it is the sword without leniency.”
The same pattern played out all over the world. The record of jihad
in India is extremely and unimaginably bloody. The history of India is
teeming with Muslim monsters such as Timur the Terrible, who paraphrased
the Qur’an: “‘O prophet make war against the infidels and treat them
severely.’ My great object in invading Hindustan (India) had been to
wage a religious war against the infidel Hindus.” And he did. Hundreds
of thousands of Hindus were beheaded and towers were made of their
skulls. The warrior Babur was particularly fond of raising higher and
higher towers of Hindu heads that the Muslims had cut off during and
after every battle. He loved to sit in his royal tent and watch this
spectacle. On one such occasion, according to The Koran and the Kafir by A. Ghosh, the ground flowed with so much blood “and became so filled with quivering carcasses that his tent had to be moved thrice to a higher level.”
Throughout Islamic history there have been as many as 270 million victims of jihadi wars, cultural annihilation, and enslavements.
The Muslim war against the infidel is monstrous, unremitting, and
constant to the present day. And it is raging with increasing ferocity
in the contemporary West, and everywhere non-Muslims live in proximity
to Muslims. Just last week in a savage Muslim mob pelted Christian worshippers with rotten eggs, bags of urine, and dung.
