Fjordman: Muslim ‘Offenses’ Are About Power, Not Words


Note to readers from Fjordman: I am grateful to those of you who have donated already. Those who haven’t, but wish to do so, can donate via my PayPal button here at Gates of Vienna. I am very grateful for all contributions and will start sending out the first thank-you emails to donors this weekend.

Fjordman’s latest essay has been published at FrontPage Mag. Some excerpts are below:

Dhimmis are non-Muslims under Islamic rule who are not just second-rate citizens in their own country but could almost be described as non-citizens, lacking basic rights and protection for themselves and their families in many situations. Dhimmis are supposed to be subservient and obedient to Muslims at all times and are required to forever pay them substantial amounts of protection money, jizya, in “willing submission” to Islamic rule.

Muslims love to portray themselves as innocent, blameless victims and predictably complain after nearly every Jihadist terror attack that all Muslims should not be punished for the actions of a few individuals. However, they carefully leave out the fact that this is precisely what their own Islamic law and logic dictates for non-Muslims.

If even one non-Muslim dhimmi says or does something that displeases a Muslim, this can and sometimes does trigger violent retribution against his entire community. In practice, a mere rumor falsely planted by a Muslim who holds a personal grudge against a specific non-Muslim can be enough to trigger riots, murder and mayhem. This means that non-Muslims in countries harboring sizable Muslim populations live under a constant shadow of fear of Muslim violence and abuse. If one of them at any given time says something critical of Islam or its founder, this can trigger violent attacks and murder against his entire clan, tribe or nation based on the flimsiest excuse.

What Western mass media have nearly universally failed to point out is that Muslims have now advanced to the point where they treat the entire Western world as dhimmis, hostages to Muslim abuse and threats of violence. On September 11th 2012, the anniversary of the 9/11 Jihadist attacks against the USA, Muslim mobs attacked several American embassies in the Middle East and killed the US Ambassador in Libya, Christopher Stevens. Evidence indicates that this attack had {text2|been planned} in advance.

In multiple Middle Eastern cities, crowds shouted slogans in praise of Osama bin Laden, whose terror network al-Qaida killed thousands of Americans on September 11th 2001. The date was no doubt chosen to mock the USA and show continued support for Jihad against the West, yet the pretext for these attacks was an obscure movie made under unclear circumstances in the USA that was considered offensive to Muslims. Western media who present this movie, Innocence of Muslims, as the “cause” or direct trigger of these attacks fail to note that Muslims will pick up any pretext to riot. They have been known to make complaints and threats to hamburger stores or coffee shops because they claimed to have seen hidden references to the words Allah or Muhammed in their products. Muslims are skinless people in a sandpaper world, as one observer once put it. Their feelings would always be “hurt” by something even if we removed all offensive cartoons and movies on the planet. This is about power, fear, dominance and Islamic aggression.

Most of us suspect that mass immigration into Europe was never for purely economic reasons but that it was, as promised in 1928, part of the Marxists' armoury aimed at bringing down Europeans and their Christian civilisation and achieving the realisation of the Marxist International Revolution.

The reason that muslim immigration has been especially helpful, unless you are a homosexual or a Jew, is that, I have decided, Islamic totalitarianism and Marxist totalitarianism are so similar. They both demand total submission and therefore the abolition of all democracy and freedom, especially freedom of speech.

I have an inkling that, irrespective of whether muslims finally take over Europe, they are being used by the Marxists to ensure that we remain in a state of fear and subjection and are rendered supine, impotent and silent.

It has puzzled me as to why the backing of the Arab Spring by many European governments, including those of Britain and France, as well as the US could really be of any benefit to us. After hearing prime minister David Cameron speak at the UN however I have concluded quite seriously that the aim is the creation of Eurabia as the next step towards world-wide totalitarianism. David Cameron is not a conservative, he is a cultural Marxist and obviously working towards the New World Order. Despite all this coaltion wrangling and mud slinging between the parties in parliament, on the issues that really matter to Britain and the rest of Europe chiefly the survival or not of the free democratic ethnocentric European nation state all three parties are singing from the same hymn sheet.

Fjordman, you are an intellectual leader. Thank you for all you have done. I fear for our movement, however. There are already cracks beginning to show. SION has broken with the EDL after it was accused of being infiltrated by Nazis.

Can you provide any guidance? You're works have always been tinged with hope for the future. What can we do to secure a future for the West, both in North America, and more urgently in Europe. After the downfall of Wilders in the Netherlands (I hope he continues to fight), I have concerns about our victory. What do we do?

Anonymous : Wilders still forms a powerblock in The Netherlands , for the moment he will be in the opposition banks.

But looking at the coalition VVD/PVDA and their right/left backgrounds I do not think this goevrnment to form will last for more than a year.

Wilders will rise again , he still has 1 million voters , its just that the majority of voters got scared of a SP/PVDA coalition.

Thanks for the reassurance. The more I research what has been going on, (particularly in Sweden with this program to turn boys into girls from age 5), the more fearful I am for our future.

Anonymous, there is absolutely no such thing as a downfall of Geert Wilders in the Netherlands. All that happened can be brought back to two things.

1) The lack of momentum for his party because of the way the VVD/CDA/PVV coalition ended.

2) Dutch elections were very heavily manipulated by a congsi of polling institutions and Dutch MSM, both of which are very leftwing-orientated. This manipulation was of such degree that almost certainly can be stated that Dutch democracy was in fact raped during these elections. At least this was the way I felt after the elections; it was a bloody crying shame!

I am certain that he will come back, probably stronger than before. Definitely because islamisation of Europe will not stop and EU/Euro will plunge the Europian countries in horror.

In the meantime, let us pray that Obama will not be re-elected.
