The Moderate Muslim Moonie II

When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way!
From your first cigarette to your last dyn’ day!*
(from the “Jet Song,” West Side Story)
When you’re a Muslim, you’re a Muslim all the way, from
your first shahada
to your last dying day?

The
average Muslim is a maquette who is comfortable
with a group
identity
and is  unwilling or unable to venture beyond
the group,
either
from fear of retribution or from just plain mental inertia.

Not necessarily.  Islam hasn’t such a strong death grip on the
minds of most Muslims that it can’t be broken, provided one exercises a little
thought and courage. There are numerous ex-Muslims – unfortunately, only a
comparative handful out of the reported 1.3 billion – who have renounced Islam, repudiated it, abandoned it, and left the
beard-and-burqa fold as apostates for other faiths and even to become atheists.
These are individuals whose faculty of reason was never completely crushed or
voluntarily surrendered by them to the toxic mare’s nest of Islamic theology
and ethics. They have independent minds that have freed them to live life
unburdened by fear of a vengeful ghost and the hard looks of neighboring
Muslims.
It is the premise of this writer that Islam is evil
– evil in its beginnings, evil in practice, evil in its epistemology and
metaphysics, evil in its ethics. Islam is a nihilist, anti-life system, heads
and tails, obverse or reverse, its politics and its religion. I’ve discussed
this numerous times, for example, here,
here,
and here.

The urge to “belong” to “something greater” – Iranian
Shi’ite Muslims hold a mass Moonie-style wedding

 Imitation
is the sincerest form of flattery.

Now, if one were able to explain that in the
simplest terms to your average Muslim, who would be armed only with a bag of halal groceries or a laundry basket
instead of a gun or a machete, what do you think his response would be? A
shutdown. An evasion. A practiced blank-out. A resentment for being put on the
spot to defend his religion, which he knows he couldn’t do except by reciting
some Koranic verse or referring to an Islamic authority. Perhaps he would let
his emotions take over and assault you.
Perhaps he would go MSM on you and reply, “Your
freedom of speech doesn’t extend to insulting my beliefs or hurting my feelings.”
Hugh Kenrick, in Sparrowhawk:
Book Two
, confronted with similar mentalities in Britain’s 18th century
aristocracy, composed a doggerel about them, which he called the “Bilbury
Lament”: “Blink, blink. It’s such a chore to think!”
So, you shouldn’t hold your breath for a series of questions
or snappy rejoinders or even a string of expletives. Your eloquence would be
answered by fear and evasion or the parroting of some “Islam is a religion of
peace” line.
The warp and woof of Islam World are clueless
because they’ve been taught not to think. Not to be receptive to reason. To
reject reason as an enemy of Islam. They’ve been told that reason is infidel
sophistry or Satan’s tool to lead the faithful and the believers astray into
apostasy and sin, and against Allah’s will. They won’t question the “received
wisdom” of Mohammad.
However, not wanting to think, or not being able to
because rank-and-file Muslims are largely lobotomized maquettes, doesn’t let them off the hook. The onus of rebuttal is
still over them. That they can’t or won’t bother to think is no excuse.
“There are no evil thoughts except one: the refusal to think,” noted
novelist/philosopher Ayn Rand.  Since any
given Muslim is a mystic, she had further words about mystics:
Mysticism is the
claim to some non-sensory, non-rational, non-definable, non-identifiable means
of knowledge, such as “instinct,” “intuition,” “revelation,” or any form of
“just knowing.”
They “just know” because the Koran told them so, just as their religious opposites and enemies, fundamentalist
Christians, say that “the
Bible tells them so
.”
Your average Muslim, regardless of his trade or
profession, if he were honest and not afraid to confess his dependency on the
group, would say something like this:
“My identity isn’t self-made. I have no identity
that is not linked to the group. I have no first-hand values. All my values are
second-hand. Values are for the group to establish. My values are established
by my brothers in spirit, who are also second-handers. I am but an empty vessel
to be filled by others.  I have a need to
belong to something greater than me. By myself, I am nothing. With my brothers,
I am all. I don’t want the responsibility for living for my own sake. I live
only to serve Allah, and the Prophet Mohammad is my model.”
Jihadis,
however – whether they belong to ISIS or the Taliban or Al-Qaeda – know their creed is evil. They know they themselves are evil. They are
the practicing nihilists who act to destroy the good for being the good. Else
why would they flaunt their atrocities in graphic videos and photographs? They
are not mere sociopaths. A virtuous man would not make a show of his virtue,
except incidentally and not consciously. He doesn’t need to prove the efficacy
of his virtue to anyone. This knowledge is also held by so-called “lone wolves”
like Muhammad
Youssef Abdulazeez
, the Muslim who killed four Marines and a Navy sailor
last week.
But it is the killer Muslims who need to prove the
efficacy of their evil by broadcasting their atrocities to as wide an audience
as possible, especially to those whom they wish to rape, maim, slaughter, or
exterminate. They disguise their evil with quotations from the Koran and other
Islam texts, and boast of being virtuous Muslims who are only following the teachings
of Mohammad and enacting Allah’s will on earth. They want to show the living
what is in store for everyone else. As their victims loved life, the
jihadis love death
. Not just their own deaths, but ours. The death of the
Western, civilized world.
Demonstrating their skill and capacity to destroy
is the only form of efficacy they can manage. It isn’t by performing “good
works” by feeding the poor or fighting disease. ISIS is not the Peace Corps. It
exists to destroy, not to teach irrigation techniques to backward tribes or how
toothless hags can weave a better basket using green energy.  The ranks of ISIS are moved by the death wish
of killer. They wish to die but want to make sure they take us with them.
Frankly, I think the whole “martyrdom” meme that permeates Islam isn’t believed
by most jihadis. I don’t think many
of them actually buy the “All martyrs go to Paradise” line, either.
They want to die. But they don’t want you to live,
either.
To paraphrase another West Side Story lyric: “Down
deep inside, we’re
 no good
! No earthly good! The best of
us is no damn good!”
It’s a gang, like the Jets, or the Sharks. It’s a
fraternity of nihilists. They have a compelling need to belong to something
literally “greater than themselves.”
Militarily, ISIS can be defeated, by sending every
last “Jet” to his last dyin’ day.
