Just a follow-up to my earlier post Notre Dame and Islam, in which I exercised the right (a privilege when speaking on somebody else’s site, thank you gentlemen) to ask whether the Notre Dame fire was just one more casualty in the ongoing war between Islam and anything which is not Islam.
Doesn’t look like it’s part of the war. I don;t know what the cause is, but I concur with those who have said that if it were an attack, we would probably know by now. Of course, some nasty people are celebrating the conflagration in the name of Islam, which is only to be expected. But this is not the same as saying it was an attack. Frankly, by this time I expected to hear at least bogus claims of responsibility. Now I add quickly that I further expect any such claims, real or specious, to be suppressed by a thoroughly dhimmified western establishment, but on the whole, I would expect to hear more by now if this had been an attack.
This notion of constant war is not wrong, not misplaced, and most importantly not the product of any western bigotry. Islam is not just on a mission — Islam is itself a mission to subjugate the entire world in the name of their deity. If you’re not down with the cause, you’re not part of the club. The Three Laws of Islamodynamics are:
- You’re not greater than Islam
- You’re not equal to Islam
- You won’t escape Islam
This leaves only subjugation to Islam. Sure, Islamists and Muslims of various stripes quibble about methods, there is not a single practicing Muslim who will tell you that you, you dirty infidel, are entitled to the same rights and respect as the lowest Muslim. Even reserving (as I do) wiggle room for Muslims who do not profess Islamism, that is, an active desire to take over the world, they themselves have no ideological room to allow that you may be an equal. This can even take as noble a form as wishing to enlighten an acquaintance, which is a healthy desire shared by any proselytizing religion. The difference is that Islam is and has been engaged in a violent war of conquest. There’s a reason that the Crusades were fought in formerly Christian and Jewish lands, and why the West’s most celebrated battles against Islam were all fought on European soil.
It is important to be able to discuss this very real situation in public, or else we simply lose. A people who will not speak will also not act.
