The Objective is Terror II

Cafe Alpha provides a link in the comments to "A speech delivered by Dr. Andrew Bostom in Fairfield Connecticut to the Congregation Beth El, December 7, 2008."

This current Jewish tragedy within a much larger non-Muslim, primarily Hindu tragedy, reminded me of the Indian Sufi “inspiration” for The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism, Ahmad Sirhindi. Nearing completion of my first book compendium, The Legacy of Jihad, in early 2005, specifically the section about jihad on the Indian subcontinent, I came across a remarkable comment by the Indian Sufi theologian Sirhindi (d. 1624). Typical of the mainstream Muslim clerics of his era, Sirhindi was viscerally opposed to the reforms which characterized the latter ecumenical phase of Akbar’s 16th century reign (when Akbar became almost a Muslim-Hindu syncretist), particularly the abolition of the humiliating jizya (Koranic poll tax, as per Koran 9:29) upon the subjugated infidel Hindus. In the midst of an anti-Hindu tract Sirhindi wrote, motivated by Akbar’s pro-Hindu reforms, Sirhindi observes,

Whenever a Jew is killed, it is for the benefit of Islam.

The biographical information I could glean about Sirhindi provided, among other things, no evidence he was ever in direct contact with Jews, so his very hateful remark suggested to me that the attitudes it reflected must have a theological basis in Islam—contra the prevailing, widely accepted “wisdom” that Islam, unlike Christianity was devoid of such theological Antisemitism.

Jew-hatred is at the core of Islam. Why? Because Muhammad had trouble convincing the skeptical Jews of his hallucinations. The Arabian Jews of the 7th century saw Islam for the painfully silly cult that it is.

Initially, Muhammad couldn't retaliate. That's how we got those "peaceful verses" in the Quran. Though, as he got more followers, he started to vomit the "war verses". The end result was the humiliation and sometimes annihilation of the Jews of Arabia.

This leads to a not-so-small problem. To criticize Jew-hatred is to criticize Muhammad and his evil legacy. And in some nations to do that results in the death penalty.

We are in a Long War which started almost 1400 years ago.



"The Arabian Jews of the 7th century saw Islam for the painfully silly cult that it is."

Naw. Otherwise they would have seen their own religion in a similar light. They didn't accept his teachings for the same reason they don't accept the teachings of Jesus or Buddha - because they were brainwashed as children to believe in their own silly little cult, and breaking that indoctrination in later years is rather difficult.

Other than that, though, you're pretty much dead on :)

If you compare the two, they are actually pretty close on many fronts. Islam is basically what happens when you take Judaism, twist it with pagan Arab culture and base it around the Arab culture rather than Hebrew culture. The reason that Islam cannot stomach the existence of Judaism is because Judaism, by its very nature, shows that Islam is a derivative religion which is inferior to the original.
