The Reptilian Islamicist Mind

by Glenn Fairman 5/5/14

The Reptilian Islamicist Mind turns in upon itself and convulses. If it did not have a conspiratorial scapegoat to pin the heaving misery of its moribund civilization upon, it would consume itself in a blood orgy of fratricide. Having pressed the heel of its sandal so firmly upon the neck of the Jew for fourteen centuries, Islam as a civilization is psychologically unprepared for beholding itself bested in every aspect of intellectual, technological, and civic life by its half-brother “Jacob.”

Fundamentalist Islam and the retrograde Arab psyche are now, all things being equal, virtually one and the same: a warped and monstrous prism that brutally distorts Man and God and mutilates them into long shadowy wraiths, projected on a desert of parched and shifting sands.

    The Arab/Muslim connection (even though the two groups aren’t identical, either here or in the Middle East) is why I refer to the Muslim/Arab world as the Evil Crescent. I think the element of wounded pride has a lot to do with their reaction. Way back when, they were an advanced civilization (though many say that this was mainly due to Christians and Jews still living among them). Then they degenerated intellectually, so that for several centuries they’ve produced nothing of interest to the rest of the world (nor have they shown any real interest in the rest of the world). As a result, they’ve stagnated, so that now they can no longer create, they can only destroy. And thus they became nihilistic, since changing their ways was not an emotionally acceptable option.

    You do a disservice to all the peaceful, law abiding non-violent reptiles world over who just want to avoid being eaten by an eagle. As for Muslims; never met one I felt I could trust.

      Do you know, I had much the same thought? Of course, I have a fascination for snakes (especially venomous ones, a reflection of a morbid personality).

    First off, I don’t disagree with Glenn. And when push comes to shove, I won’t be siding with the Marxists. I’ll be siding with the Onward Christian Soldiers.

    And that’s a rare thing these days…perhaps even among many Christians who have learned that Christianity isn’t about “Christ,” it’s about “diversity.”

    Another thing that has been learned in this culture is that “religion poisons everything.” That is, relativism has thoroughly taken hold, even amongst people who aren’t particularly friendly toward the Left. There is thought by many to be no difference between one religion and the other. They are all the same. They are all as bad.

    “Reason,” we are told (by people such as Christopher Hitchens and Carl Sagan), is the only light we need. And although there’s nothing wrong with “reason,” per se, in practice it is simply a conceit not followed up by habit of thought and of practice. It’s a mere affectation. A mental tattoo.

    Civilization, to some extent, is an agreement among people that we will not act like barbarians, that we will put away our innate propensity for violence, thievery, and pillaging and play by a civilized set of rules. This is the goodness that Christianity has brought or at least enhanced in the modern age. It has asked men to ask questions deeper than mere expediency. It has asked men to act like they are derived from a divine source and are not just glorified pond scum (primordial ooze).

    I’m extremely doubtful that Islam ever had a golden age. I think what it had was the erection of a lot of nice mosques due to plundering others via conquest. This is one of the themes of Rodney Stark’s book, How the West Won. We might look at the Taj Mahal, for example, and suppose there was once a very wealthy kingdom of old. But, in fact, such prominent displays of wealth are not the tip of the iceberg but the flash in the pan. It has always been typical for human kind to be burdened under regimes who amass the wealth for themselves and conspicuously display it while the rest of society is dirt poor, barren of goods and of the opportunity to advance.

    Whatever the case may be, it has been a mean bit of propagandizing by Marxists and their useful idiots to get people to automatically suppose that Islam is the “religion of peace” and that Christianity is that nasty internal force against which “Enlightened” man has forever struggled. Think of the wicked power Marxists (and their useful idiots) have held to be able to tell such a monstrous lie.

    In fact, it was with the Greeks, and later the Christians, that science really took off. It was under their philosophies that nature was seen not as random but as reflecting some underlying unity that could be comprehended by man. One may or may not believe in the Christian doctrine, but to have accepted without thought the slander of the Left that “every religion is equally bad” (or, in practice, that Christianity is bad and every other religion is good) is monstrous.

    And there is very little “reason” behind such monstrous acquiescence.

    Islam is a prison to the mind and soul, keeping both enslaved and impoverished. It is a basement without windows, a sewer without ventilation, allowing no concept to enter of a loving God and all that that concept engenders in human behavior.
    When I consider hell, I try to imagine a state without the minutest degree of love, compassion, caring or kindness, but rather a state wherein absolute evil, absolute hatred for everyone and everything and especially for the fully corrupted self reigns without the slightest let up, forever.
    In earthly terms I always considered North Korea to be the closest approximation imaginable.
    But when, after nearly 1500 years, Muslims finally succeed in eliminating the influences of a viable Christian presence in their midst, the nations that follow Islam will finally consummate their inevitable collapse into such hatred-driven butchery and savagery that those places will even more fully represent a true hell on earth. For then there will be nothing to exercise any moderating influence on the hate-ridden, murderous nature of Islam.
    For one and one half millennia Christians in the Middle East have endured amidst the most terrible oppressions, one generation after another bravely holding to their faith under conditions hard to imagine. Their noble presence in these places appears to be nearing an end.
    Absent their presence, ironically, or more likely providentially, such hopeless turmoil may fall upon those lands that the only hope for their peoples will be in conversion to the very Christianity that they for so long brutally persecuted.
    During the earth’s Ice Ages, as the smothering glaciers moved southward, many species of plants, trees and animals were displaced from their ancient ranges by an unforgiving, inhospitable environment.
    Some of them took refuge in local “micro-climates” where they remained, patiently living out their lives in their adopted homes until, in time, the conditions for their return became optimal.
    This is what I think will happen in the Middle East, the birthplace of Christianity, where a once vibrant Christianity may one day again take root.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      A good example of modern Islam is Bokol Haram in Nigeria, and the 200 girls those vermin (I’d use Schweinhund as the most appropriate term for vermin who consider both pigs and dogs unclean, but my knowledge of German doesn’t extend to the plural form) kidnapped. The UN just announced that if they didn’t return the girls, the Useless Nations would be very angry with them, and even (eventually) punish any who ever fall into their hands.

      A more effective response would be to wipe out a Muslim village in their home territory every day that the girls aren’t released. Eventually either they’d all be released, or the Muslim population of that area would be eradicated, either of which would be desirable (and both would be better). As I said in an item in the (eventually) upcoming FOSFAX, “Allah a bas!”

    Just add an “e” to the end and you have the filthy dogs.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      Thanks. There are so many regular ways to come up with plurals in German. And that doesn’t even count the irregular ones.

      Add an “r-e-d” to the end and you have a century’s worth.

  6. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    Actual reality and history are complicated and long-running. I don’t think I’ve read enough books yet to pass total judgment on this subject.

    But one of the shortcut “narratives” regarding Islam, and religion in general, is that they are steadily “pacified” by enlightened secularism. Christianity is considered the equivalent of Islam in such a view. And if Islam is more violent than Christianity, its just that Christianity has had longer exposure to the pacifying effect of “secular” enlightened people.

    And you might be surprised how widespread this notion is. It could said to be behind George Bush’s naive notions regarding Islam. And the practice of our foreign policy seems to be based on the idea that given enough time, the enlightened “Progressive” good intentions of Bush and others will moderate and mollify what Winston Churchill called, in effect, a mad dog:

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism[72 virgins, I’m assuming] deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.

    The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities – but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

    There’s much disagreement over how much Christianity was opposed to science. There’s much reason to believe that the ground was laid for scientific pursuits by Christianity. It’s a complicated question because how do you separate out the normal propensity toward orthodoxy — which exists in science, if not to a higher degree — from what a particular religion officially forbids? Ann Coulter has written about how Galileo, for instance, has been turned into the poster child of the “enlightenment” when the actual issue was far more complex. In short, the Church wasn’t against Galileo’s science as much as they were for punishing an arrogant man.

    Whatever the case may be, we need only look around us to the world that has emerged from the part birthed by Christianity and the part birthed by Islam. There is a stark and huge difference. And if we note how the world is turning dark once again due to Leftism, perhaps we should reassess what our Marxist college professors passed on as “consensus truth” about such things.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      Male ownership of women is a primitive notion, and Islam (designed as the religion for Arab desert raiders) naturally retains such primitivism. Mike Resnick has noted that in Swahili (the lingua franca of East Africa, which incidentally owes a great deal to Arabic as well as African languages) there’s no word for “woman”. The word they use, manamouki, refers to any sort of female property — a wife, a goat, a cow, whatever.
