Iran decries President ‘cowboy’ Trump’s ‘ignorant hate speech’ at the United Nations

The Islamic Republic of Iran and the international Left both term honest discussion of the jihad threat and determination to counter it “hate speech.”

President Trump speaking to the United Nations.

“Iran Lashes Out at ‘Cowboy’ Trump After U.N. Speech,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 20, 2017:

Senior Iranian leaders verbally attacked President Donald Trump late Tuesday and early Wednesday following his first United Nations address, in which the U.S. president harshly criticized Iran for its support of global terror operations, according to regional reports….

In brief remarks to reporters following a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Trump said, “I have decided” on whether to designate Iran in violation of the nuclear deal, a move that would set the wheels in motion for the United States to leave the agreement and reimpose tough sanctions on Tehran.

When pressed on the issue, Trump smiled and said, “I’ll let you know what the decision is.”…

“We won’t chicken out for cowboy-like acts of Trump,” Brig. Gen. Seyyed Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces, was quoted as saying on Tuesday in reaction to Trump’s U.N. speech, which singled out Iran and its nuclear program as a chief global threat.

Trump’s “remarks recount how the weak and incapable government of the U.S. has fallen in melancholy after keeping the dream of being the world’s superpower,” Jazayeri was quoted as saying in Iran’s state-controlled media….

“For facing a country whose president overtly and blatantly shouts at the lectern of the U.N. that it would ‘totally destroy’ with its military power, no option is left but to strengthen the defensive infrastructures,” he said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani offered similar remarks, telling reporters that Iran would “be victorious” in any outcome, even if Trump moves to end the nuclear agreement.

“Iran will be victorious, regardless of what happens” with the nuclear deal, Rouhani said. “If the U.S. backs out of the deal, they will suffer loss and if they remain committed, they will sow benefits. We are ready for any situation and there is no obstacle to our advance toward our objectives.”

Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, said that Iran is already moving to enhance its military capabilities and face down the United States.

“Time is now ripe for correcting the U.S. miscalculations,” Jafari was quoted as saying after Trump’s speech. “Now that the U.S. has fully displayed its nature, the government should use all its options to defend the Iranian nation’s interests.”

“Taking a decisive position against Trump is just the start and what is strategically important is that the U.S. should witness more painful responses in the actions, behavior, and decisions that Iran will take in the next few months,” he said….

“A person who takes the presidential office with deception and undemocratic behavior, will be unable to differentiate between delivering speech in the United Nations from the rough American football.” Hamid Aboutalebi, a senior Rohani [sic] aide tweeted.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, the main official who helped cement the nuclear agreement, described Trump’s remarks as “ignorant hate speech” on his Twitter feed.

Facebook lists ‘Jew-hater’ as category for advertisers

This is no surprise, since Facebook is rushing to censor anything critical of Islam. Islamic Jew-hatred: it’s in the Quran. And since it is in the Quran, no one should be shocked that it shows up now on sharia Facebook.

“Facebook listed ‘Jew-hater’ as category for advertisers,” JTA, September 15, 2017:

(JTA) — A news site was able to target ads at Facebook users who expressed interest in “Jew hater” and “how to burn Jews.”

ProPublica, an investigative site, reported Thursday that Facebook’s advertisement algorithms generated categories including “Jew hater,” “How to burn jews,” and “History of ‘why jews ruin the world.’”

Facebook removed the categories after being alerted to their existence and said it would seek to prevent such categories from popping up for potential advertisers. Later Friday, Facebook said in a statement to JTA that it would remove “self-reported” categories — those generated by users, as opposed to those generated by the company — “until we have the right processes in place to help prevent this issue.”

The categories on their own were too small to justify an ad buy, according to the Facebook system, so ProPublica added as targets the SS and the Nazi Party, available on Facebook’s generated list as “employers,” and the National Democratic Party of Germany, a current far right political party in Germany.

ProPublica paid $30 for three targeted posts, which reached 5,897 people….

Leader of Myanmar: ‘Fake news helping terrorists’

She said that “there were many fake news photographs circulating which were ‘simply the tip of a huge iceberg of misinformation calculated to create a lot of problems between different communities and with the aim of promoting the interest of the terrorists.’”

And even the relentlessly pro-jihad BBC admits that “many – but not all – of the pictures come from other crises around the world, with one tweeted by Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek dating back to the Rwandan genocide in 1994.”

Also, given the large-scale “Palestinian” industry of faking Israeli atrocities, it doesn’t strain credulity in the least that Islamic jihadis and supremacists may be fabricating atrocities against the Rohingya in order to sway public opinion. Muhammad said, “War is deceit.”

“Rohingya crisis: Suu Kyi says ‘fake news helping terrorists,’” BBC, September 6, 2017:

Myanmar’s de-facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has claimed that the crisis in Rakhine state is being distorted by a “huge iceberg of misinformation”.

In her first comments on the latest Rohingya crisis, she said tensions were being fanned by fake news promoting the interests of terrorists.

Ms Suu Kyi made the comments in a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, her office said.

More than 123,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh in two weeks.

The latest outbreak of violence has sent waves of refugees fleeing the country, which is also called Burma.
What has Suu Kyi said?

The latest government statement said Ms Suu Kyi told Mr Erdogan that her government had “already started defending all the people in Rakhine in the best way possible”.

Ms Suu Kyi is quoted as saying: “We know very well, more than most, what it means to be deprived of human rights and democratic protection.

“So we make sure that all the people in our country are entitled to protection of their rights as well as, the right to, and not just political but social and humanitarian defence.”

The statement also said there were many fake news photographs circulating which were “simply the tip of a huge iceberg of misinformation calculated to create a lot of problems between different communities and with the aim of promoting the interest of the terrorists”.
Is it ‘fake news’?

There has certainly been a large amount of “fake news” surrounding recent events.

By 5 September there had been 1.2 million tweets talking about the crisis since refugees began flooding over the border, and many contain pictures purportedly showing a glimpse of the violence which has engulfed the region.

The problem is, according to the BBC’s south-east Asia correspondent Jonathan Head, “much of it is wrong”. A closer look reveals many – but not all – of the pictures come from other crises around the world, with one tweeted by Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek dating back to the Rwandan genocide in 1994.

But the BBC Burmese Service’s Tin Htar Swe said much of the blame for Ms Suu Kyi’s “iceberg” could be laid at the government’s door.

“The fake news is generated because the government is not allowing media access to the troubled areas,” she said. What’s more, she added, “if they allowed the UN or human rights bodies to go to the place to find out what is happening then this misinformation is not going to take place”.
Where are the refugees?

As a result, all people outside the affected areas have to rely on is the conflicting accounts of the Rohingya fleeing Myanmar and the government – with the space in between ripe for “fake news”.

However, we do know the latest conflict was sparked on 25 August when Rohingya militants attacked police posts, triggering a military counter-offensive.

The military says it is fighting against Rohingya militants who are attacking civilians.

But the Rohingya families streaming north into Bangladesh have been reporting that security forces, sometimes backed by armed Buddhist civilians, burned their villages and opened fire on their inhabitants.

Their story has been contradicted by Myanmar’s Minister in charge of Border Security in Rakhine, Col Phone Tint. He told our correspondent Jonathan Head who is travelling on a government-organised visit to the border town of Maungdaw that the destruction of villages was a deliberate strategy by the militants, aimed at forcing the Muslim population to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh….

Twitter Flags Saying ‘Islam Is NOT a Religion of Peace’ as Possible ‘Hateful Conduct’

I was simply repeating what the major schools of Sunni jurisprudence teach. My latest in PJ Media:

A few weeks ago I noticed that the hashtag #ConfessYourUnpopularOpinion was trending on Twitter. So I thought I would have a little fun, posted the tweet below, and forgot about it — until this weekend, when I received this email warning me that the tweet was being evaluated for possible violation of Twitter’s “hateful conduct policy”:

“We are sending you this notification to allow you to evaluate it,” said Twitter.

All right. Let’s do that.

I could quote violent passages from the Qur’an, but those might be waved away with the dismissive and erroneous claim that the Bible contains similar exhortations to violence. Let’s focus instead on what Islamic authorities say — because one should get the impression that Islam is not a religion of peace from the authoritative sources in Sunni Islam, the schools of Sunni jurisprudence (madhahib).

Shafi’i school

A Shafi’i manual of Islamic law that was certified in 1991 by the clerics at Al-Azhar University — one of the leading authorities in the Islamic world — as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy stipulates about jihad that:

[T]he caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians … until they become Muslim or pay the non-Muslim poll tax.

It adds a comment by Sheikh Nuh Ali Salman, a Jordanian expert on Islamic jurisprudence: the caliph wages this war only:

… provided that he has first invited [Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians] to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya) … while remaining in their ancestral religions. ( ‘Umdat al-Salik, o9.8).

Of course, there is no caliph today, unless one believes the claims of the Islamic State, and hence the oft-repeated claim that ISIS, et al are waging jihad illegitimately, as no state authority has authorized their jihad. But they explain their actions in terms of defensive jihad, which needs no state authority to call it, and becomes “obligatory for everyone” (‘Umdat al-Salik, o9.3) if a Muslim land is attacked.

The end of the defensive jihad, however, is not peaceful coexistence with non-Muslims as equals: ‘Umdat al-Salik specifies that the warfare against non-Muslims must continue until “the final descent of Jesus.” After that?

“ [N]othing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent” (o9.8).

Hanafi school

A Hanafi manual of Islamic law repeats the same injunctions. It insists that people must be called to embrace Islam before being fought, “because the Prophet so instructed his commanders, directing them to call the infidels to the faith.” It emphasizes that jihad must not be waged for economic gain, but solely for religious reasons. From the call to Islam:

… the people will hence perceive that they are attacked for the sake of religion, and not for the sake of taking their property, or making slaves of their children, and on this consideration it is possible that they may be induced to agree to the call, in order to save themselves from the troubles of war.

However:

“[I]f the infidels, upon receiving the call, neither consent to it nor agree to pay capitation tax [jizya], it is then incumbent on the Muslims to call upon God for assistance, and to make war upon them, because God is the assistant of those who serve Him, and the destroyer of His enemies, the infidels, and it is necessary to implore His aid upon every occasion; the Prophet, moreover, commands us so to do.” (Al-Hidayah, II.140)

Maliki school

Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406), a pioneering historian and philosopher, was also a Maliki legal theorist. In his renowned Muqaddimah, the first work of historical theory, he notes:

[I]n the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.

In Islam, the person in charge of religious affairs is concerned with “power politics,” because Islam is “under obligation to gain power over other nations.”

Hanbali school

The great medieval theorist of what is commonly known today as radical or fundamentalist Islam, Ibn Taymiyya (Taqi al-Din Ahmad Ibn Taymiyya, 1263-1328), was a Hanbali jurist. He directed:

[S]ince lawful warfare is essentially jihad and since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way of this aim must be fought.

This is also taught by modern-day scholars of Islam.

Majid Khadduri was an Iraqi scholar of Islamic law of international renown. In his book War and Peace in the Law of Islam, which was published in 1955 and remains one of the most lucid and illuminating works on the subject, Khadduri says this about jihad:

The state which is regarded as the instrument for universalizing a certain religion must perforce be an ever expanding state. The Islamic state, whose principal function was to put God’s law into practice, sought to establish Islam as the dominant reigning ideology over the entire world. … The jihad was therefore employed as an instrument for both the universalization of religion and the establishment of an imperial world state. (P. 51)

Imran Ahsan Khan Nyazee is an assistant professor on the Faculty of Shari’ah and Law of the International Islamic University in Islamabad. In his 1994 book The Methodology of Ijtihad, he quotes 12th century Maliki jurist Ibn Rushd:

Muslim jurists agreed that the purpose of fighting with the People of the Book … is one of two things: it is either their conversion to Islam or the payment of jizyah.

Nyazee concludes:

This leaves no doubt that the primary goal of the Muslim community, in the eyes of its jurists, is to spread the word of Allah through jihad, and the option of poll-tax [jizya] is to be exercised only after subjugation [of non-Muslims].

All this makes it clear that there is abundant reason to believe that Islam is indeed inherently violent.

It would be illuminating if Twitter produced some quotations from Muslim authorities they consider “authentic,” and explained why the authorities I’ve quoted above and others like them are inauthentic. While in reality there is no single Muslim authority who can proclaim what is “authentic” Islam, and thus it would be prudent not to make sweeping statements about what “authentic Islam” actually is, clearly there are many Muslims who believe that authentic Islam is inherently violent and not a “Religion of Peace.”…

VIDEO: The Collapse of British Culture

At the federal level in Britain, there can be no Christian prayer in government meetings.

At the local level in Manchester, England, a government meeting opens with Islamic prayer.

A young man wrote on his body, Stop Muslim Rape Gangs. This in reference to “Asian” rape gangs in the media. He was arrested for inciting racial hatred.

The West has always failed to call Muslims, “Muslims.” Instead they call them Arabs, Saracens, Turks, Moors, and now the Brits call them Asians.

The British spend their political capital to denigrate their own culture and elevate Islam.

We are seeing the collapse of Britain due to a civilizational war with Islam.

Man convicted of eating bacon in front of three Muslims, must pay each $625, plus $1125 fine

What would have happened if he had been drinking a beer? Five years in prison? Amputation of the hand? In Sharia Sweden, you never know. Yes, he was boorish and rude, and racist as well, if the accounts of the three women are to be believed, but this sentence is appallingly draconian.

“Men offended women in veils,” translated from “Man ofredade kvinnor i slöja,” Märsta.nu, August 30, 2017:

A 53-year-old man from Stockholm has been convicted of offending three women wearing headscarves on the shuttle between Väsby and Märsta. The man held up bacon and ate it in front of them while saying he hated Muslims.

The man was charged with disproportionate hatred against the public, but was not convicted of that charge. The headscarf-wearing women alerted police to the fact that on a train in April 2015, he held bacon up to their faces and ate it in front of them, and then said “I hate Muslims, I hate Negroes.”

Convicted in court

Two of the plaintiffs are registered in Finland and the third in Kista. The man began to eat his bacon demonstratively in front of the women, and when they changed their places, he followed them. The whole incident lasted for several minutes. The court considered that the three plaintiffs had provided aggregate information and police also received evidence from witnesses including a train employee and a traveler, as well as surveillance pictures from the train.

Denies crimes

The man will pay each of the three women 5,000 kronor [$625] in damages. In addition, he will pay 9000 kronor [$1125] in fines. The man denies the deeds and said he only wanted to eat his bacon. He should have followed the women on the train to apologize if they got upset.

The accusation of hatred against the people’s group derives from a separate incident in April 2016, but it has not been proven that the man in this context screamed “I hate Muslims” and “damn Arabs.”

Boko Haram forced 83 children to be jihad suicide bombers in 2017

A hadith has Muhammad saying: “By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya’ (army-unit) setting out in Allah’s Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Allah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.” (Bukhari 4.52.54)

But that was just talk. He was never “martyred” at all, and throughout Islamic history, many Muslim leaders have not themselves ventured into the jihad against Infidels, but have corralled weak, vulnerable people into doing it for them. And so now this.

“Boko Haram has used 83 children as suicide bombers in 2017 – UNICEF,” RT, August 22, 2017:

Boko Haram has dramatically increased the use of children in suicide bomb attacks on civilians in Nigeria, UNICEF reported Tuesday.

There has been a four-fold increase in the use of weaponized children as part of the Islamist insurgency which has ravaged the country’s northeast for eight years, UNICEF said in a statement.

So far this year, 83 children have been used as “human bombs,” the majority of whom were girls.

Such attacks are used to sow fear among the population, especially of children who have been released, rescued or escaped from Boko Haram or similar Islamist terrorist groups….

In total, 55 attacks used girls, often younger than 15 years old, 27 used boys and one even used a baby strapped to a young girl to carry out a suicide bomb attack.

A total of 19 children were used in such attacks last year, reports AP….

“There were two girls taught by Boko Haram to be suicide bombers … The girls confirmed that they were taught that their life was not worth living, that if they die detonating the bomb and killing a lot of people, then their lives will be profitable,” Nigerian aid worker Rebecca Dali said, as cited by Reuters.

So far, 1.7 million people have been displaced by the Islamist insurgency in the northeast of the country, 85 percent of whom come from Borno state, the main focus of such attacks.

The insurrection is now in its eighth year, having claimed the lives of more than 20,000 and forced more than 2 million people to flee their homes, reports Reuters.

At least 170 people have been killed since June 1 of this year.

Mercado added that while Boko Haram has not claimed responsibility for all such attacks, no other group is yet known to employ such tactics….

British Government-funded Channel 4 creates ‘recruitment video’ glorifying ISIS

The apotheosis of the Left’s infatuation with Islamic jihad: a propaganda video for the Islamic State, courtesy of the British government.

“Pure poison… it’s like a Nazi recruiting film from the 1930s: CHRISTOPHER STEVENS reviews The State,” by Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail, August 20, 2017:

A really super-cool club. That’s how a young black British doctor describes Islamic State in tonight’s episode of The State, her eyes shining as she records a YouTube message urging other young women to follow her example and defect to Syria.

‘A really super-cool club.’ There’s no irony in her voice. Dr Shakira Boothe (played by Ony Uhiara) is a single mother from London who claims to be part of the first generation of Muslims building a religious paradise on earth.

This, then, is how Channel 4, a publicly owned British broadcaster, depicts Islamic State five days after a terrorist attack in Barcelona that killed more than a dozen people – during a year that has seen British children killed by a suicide bomber at a Manchester pop concert.

A four-part drama screening on consecutive nights, The State is supposedly based on real events in Syria and Iraq, seen from the viewpoint of several British recruits who fled their homes to join the jihad or Holy War. It showcases graphic footage of torture and dismemberment.

The second episode tonight includes an appallingly callous tableau of dead babies in an incubator ward, after a bomb strike on a hospital.

It is sickening. But it isn’t the gore and scattered limbs that leave a tight knot in the stomach: it is the moist-eyed adulation as The State pleads with us not just to sympathise with the British jihadis but to love them.

All the women are elegant but strong – independent heroines making a positive choice to sacrifice their freedom for the sake of their pious religious convictions. Joans of Arc, every one. All the men are sensitive and soft-spoken – driven to fight in God’s army for their love of their families. Everyone is deeply intelligent and multi-lingual, with extensive knowledge of the Koran.

And they are all ridiculously good-looking of course, with the occasional Poldark moment for the boys as they strip off their uniforms to reveal waxed chests with moulded six-packs. The soundtrack is all swelling orchestras and throbbing drums, with moments of sad Spanish guitar when a character dies.

No one will be surprised to discover that the writer and director of the State, Peter Kosminsky, is not a veteran of the civil war in Syria. He did not carry out research missions to Raqqa and Aleppo.

In fact, middle-class film-maker Kosminsky is 61 years old and Oxbridge-educated, the epitome of the London media luvvie who is desperate to demonstrate that he is less racist than anyone else at his Hampstead dinner party. He’s been the subject of a South Bank Show profile by Melvyn Bragg. You get the picture.

The dialogue of The State gives him away at every moment. It’s Dad-speak, a middle-aged man’s failed effort to sound ‘down with the kids’, which parrots comical slang last used in the 1970s by the Bay City Rollers – words such as ‘super-cool’.

In tonight’s opening scene, one fighter waves his AK47 and shouts: ‘This is better than flipping burgers!’ It’s meant to be a victory shout – but instead, the line is fake, patronising and, in its assumption that well-educated British Asians like him are destined to work at McDonald’s, dismissively racist.

Kosminsky’s dead ear for dialogue is matched by his inability to smell out lies. Because all the scenes are based on second-hand research, they mirror the propaganda videos that cascade on to the internet, showing life under Sharia law. Much of the series consists of the director’s attempts to capture the camera angles common in phone videos of battlefields and marketplaces.

It’s baffling that a man who knows how the television world works – he won Emmys and Baftas for his adaptation of Wolf Hall, after all – seems blind to the crass manipulation of Islamic State’s official videos. Kosminsky believes that the choreographed beheadings and the carefully curated aftermath of bombings are true and accurate depictions of ISIS life.

For fear of imposing his own opinions on viewers (good liberals never do that) he offers no comment on the medieval morality of Islamic State. Racism is endemic: the leading characters soon learn to sneer openly at the pathetic white fighters, who are mostly fat, tearful, closet homosexuals.

All of the characters have left their homes without saying goodbye to their parents, though Kosminsky is at pains to point out that this doesn’t mean they are ungrateful or unloving – it’s just that they didn’t dare risk alerting the forces of government oppression.

The men practise dismantling their assault rifles with their eyes shut, and learn the basics of misogyny: ‘A woman in this life is defective!’

And when the bomb strikes that baby ward, there is no hint that any blame lies with the ISIS cowards using the hospital as their shield. If anything, the fault is with the unseen hand, presumably American, that fired the missile. The only explanation for the characters’ betrayal of Britain is summed up in one line: ‘I ain’t never going back to that kuffar dump, bruv.’ Kuffar, as the constant scroll of Arabic dictionary definitions tells us, means dirty, foreign and unholy….

Kosminsky cannot be incapable of understanding how most viewers will regard his perverted vision of ISIS. But he only cares about the opinions of his peers in a deluded bubble. Any decent human being, anyone who has felt despair and heartbreak at the terrorist attacks sponsored by Islamic State, will feel nothing but revulsion for his characters. They are traitors to their families and friends. Society has provided so much entertainment and education to enrich their lives, and they are turning all of it to the most evil uses.

The State is no sort of truthful drama, as it claims to be. This is a recruitment video to rival Nazi propaganda of the Thirties calling young men to join the Brownshirts….

The Brazilian Visionary Who Sounded Warnings About Islam in the 1940s

Dateline, Paris, France 2017: They say that canaries forewarn about the impending calamities and natural disasters. Can there be human canaries that predict the onset of cultural disasters?  Yes! One of them (shunned by the Left, of course) definitely was this somewhat obscure Brazilian intellectual who lived and wrote during the worst times in the history of the Western world. Chances are that few in our audience have heard of Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira (1908-1995), a Brazilian politician, professor, priest and Catholic activist. He was the youngest congressman in Brazil’s history. He was the chair of Modern and Contemporary History at the Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

A conservative Catholic intellectual by upbringing, he served as also the first president of the Sao Paulo Archdiocesan Board of Catholic Action. He opposed the religious reforms at the Vatican II council in the 1960’s, taking issue with Catholic liberalism. Not only that but politically speaking – he was ahead of his time because he was far-sighted politically – historically. He was a visionary of things distant in a world of short-sighted and scheming, petty men at a time when the Western peoples were busy pitilessly slaughtering each other during World War Two [1936/1939-1945] a conflict in which no side can claim a victory with pride or honor because had there been honor – a war like that would not have been allowed to occur. He wrote a number of insightful books in which he warned about the coming global conflict between the West and Islam. He tried to frame a binding perspective that would help save the West.

In the excerpts from his books (Revolution and Counter-Revolution, The Church and the Communist State: The Impossible Coexistence, In Defense of Catholic Action) quoted below, you will find the snippets of his thought that give a solid and accurate impression of his thinking. Needless to say, his pronouncements have been validated by the happenings since that time in the first half of the 20th century. Moreover, sadly, his thoughts are not mainstream ideas even today, at this late hour in the losing ideological battle against the unbending world of Islam and its satanic cult of victimhood for the sake of victimhood as a cover for evil.

He could have also added, “the oil resources of the Arab world will be leveraged against the West with the help of Western corporations and greedy politicians with no statesmanlike qualities“.

IS ISLAM CONQUERING EUROPE?

A final forecast of Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira deserves to be recalled, at an hour in history where the shadow of Islam, laden with threats, looms on Europe.

At the end of the 20th century, Muslim immigration, which is ever more massive, has a religious and political significance because of the close connection between these two realities in the religion of Mohammed. This totalitarian perspective is made more insidious by the fact that Islam is a religion without dogma or Magisterium [official ruling authority in charge of faith], without Church or hierarchy, and therefore capable of adapting itself in a protean way to the social realities in which it develops.

As early as the 1940s, Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira predicted in the “Legionario” the possibility of this peril, which is now manifesting itself in all its magnitude.

While the eyes of political observers were focused solely on what was happening in Europe, he was directing his gaze towards the East, where, around Islam, he saw the germs of the “constitution of another vast political bloc and Ideological, oriental, anti-Catholic”. “The Muslim peril is immense,” he wrote in 1943, and the following year he asserted that “after this war [World War II] the Muslim problem will be one of the most serious religious questions of our time.

“The Muslim world possesses the natural resources essential to the supply of Europe. It will have the means to disturb or paralyze at any moment the pace of the European economy”. “While a great and glorious Catholic nation like Italy suffers from the communist intoxication that has penetrated into it, the Muslims structure themselves powerfully. These days they had the audacity to signal to the Western world by inviting him to accept a Palestinian government in exile with its seat in Cairo. This is a true declaration of diplomatic war on the West.”

“The Arab League – a very extensive confederation of Muslim peoples – now unites the entire Mohammedan world. It is, conversely, what Christendom was in the Middle Ages. With regard to the non-Arab nations, it presents itself as a vast pool of tribal manhood preparing an insurrection in all of Africa”.

He declared late in 1943: “Nowadays, everything is done through money, weapons and men, there is no shortage of money and men in the Muslim world, and the acquisition of weapons will not be difficult. The latter will be active, warlike, penetrated by its traditions, an enemy of the West and just as armed as he, and in a short time this power may become as influential as the yellow world [the Far East].”

As for the western politicians, de Oliviera declared: “One thing is to have sight, another is vision“.
