Random Quotations – Islam – March 28th, 2017

“…when we speak of Islam, as opposed to Muslims, we are not speaking about a mere religious belief system. We are talking about a competing civilization – that is very much how Islam self-identifies. It has its own history, principles, values, mores, and legal system. Islam, thus understood, is not non-Western. It is anti-Western… Individual Muslims may assimilate, but Islam doesn’t do assimilation. Islam does not melt into your melting pot. Islam, as Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna proclaimed, is content with nothing less than political, cultural, and civilizational dominance.” – Andrew C. McCarthy, “Islam and the Jihad in London” – National Review, March 25th, 2017.

“The current situation in Europe is deeply troubling: not only are Muslim women within Europe subject to considerable oppression in many ways, such norms now risk spreading to non-Muslim women who face harassment from Muslim men. One would think that Western feminists in the United States and Europe would be very disturbed by this obvious misogyny. But sadly, with few exceptions, this does not appear to be the case.” – Ayaan Hirsi Ali, quoted by Giulio Meotti in “White liberals attack Brown Islamic dissidents” – Gatestone Institute, March 20th, 2017.

“Merkel, along with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, secretly agreed to accept 150,000 to 250,000 Syrian migrants directly from Turkey into Europe each year, according to the German newspaper Die Welt. Merkel, Rutte and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu reached an understanding on the number through a ‘gentleman’s agreement,’ Die Welt reported, and they did not reveal this number to their fellow European leaders or the public.” – Paul Bremmer, “Merkel’s secret migrant deal with Turkey” – WND, March 18th, 2017.

“Islam is a religion of hate. But when that hate manifests itself in jihadist terror, the proper leftist move is to turn away from the reality of that hate – which last Wednesday sent several innocent people to a hospital or a morgue – to the purported ‘hate’ of decent, law-abiding individuals who have had quite enough of murderous jihadist hate. Instead of acknowledging that a large minority (if not an outright majority) of British Muslims support sharia law in the U.K. (and that more than a few privately applaud terrorism), you’re supposed to invoke the fantasy of a Britain in which all citizens, infidel and Muslim, share the same values and live together in harmony – except, of course, for the horrid Islamophobes, who, simply by mentioning the Islamic roots of Islamic terror, are exploiting terrorism, dishonoring its victims, and subverting social harmony.” – Bruce Bawer, “No truth please, we’re British” – frontpagemag.com, March 27th, 2017.

“When Muslims are in the minority, they complain about being oppressed. But the minute they become the majority, they become real oppressors because of the inherent intolerance of their culture… When Muslims are admitted in large numbers, the idea of ‘vetting’ them becomes useless; in numbers this large, they take over society and make it their own. They come fleeing a failing culture and then promptly impose that culture on their new home when their numbers become large enough. Their new territories become no-go zones for non-Muslims, and they effectively become self-governing with sharia law… Stop Muslim immigration now.” – Ed Straker, “What life is like in the Caliphate of Birmingham” – American Thinker, March 28th, 2017.
