A couple of years ago I made the prediction that within 15 years, Islam will be finished as a force on this planet. At the time I thought this might turn out to be a conservative estimate. I still do.
That is not to say that I think it will be an easy job. I know that it will involve great pain and suffering. It will also require military might to contain Islam.
On its own however, military force will not be enough. The main battle we are fighting is ideological. It is a battle I know well and there have been similar occurrences in recent times from which to draw parallels.
In 1941 the Nazis were bragging about a 1,000 year Reich. They had already conquered most of Western Europe and were headed into North Africa and Russia. It would have been a brave man to predict that by 1950, National Socialism would be an entirely discredited ideology with only a few dysfunctional followers.
In 1980 roughly one third of the world was communist. When I visited Berlin in 1992 there was almost no sign that the Berlin Wall had ever existed.
These ideologies ruled through fear. Once they lost their iron grip, people could see them for the bankrupt ideologies they really were. Once this happened, they deserted in droves.
In the last month or so we have seen a gigantic shift in the perception of Islam. Mainstream journalists and politicians are now insisting that non-Muslims have a right to comment on Islam and discuss its failings.
To our parent’s generation this would have been nothing more than common sense. From where we were just six months ago however, it is a quantum leap.
The importance of this realisation amongst our leaders cannot be underestimated.
Islam prospers by pretending to be something it isn’t. To maintain this deception it intimidates people into thinking they have no right to examine it.
Now that people have realised that they have every right to peer behind the curtain, it won’t be long before they do just that.
As yet, many commentators are still of the opinion that Islam can be reformed. Be prepared to hear much more of this futile discussion.
These people think that because Christianity was reformed, that Islam can be too. What they fail to realise is that Christianity never has been reformed. The Bible today is the same as it was 1600 years ago.
After the Eastern Church was decimated by Islamic Jihad, the Catholic Church was the only Christian institution left standing. The Church was a highly political organisation which worked hard to keep the teachings of Christ under wraps.
It used ignorance of Christianity to promote its own agenda. The Bible, and Church sermons, were all in Latin and treated as closely guarded secrets.
The Church operated as a cult. People were expected to do as they were told. They didn’t know that the instructions they received often contradicted the lessons of the Bible.
With the advent of the printing press, information began to leak out. Thanks to the efforts of insiders such as Luther, the Catholic Church gradually lost its grip on the teachings of Christ. People began reverting back to the original message.
This was not a reformation of Christianity; it was a reformation of the Church. If Christianity had been reformed, then it wouldn’t have been Christianity any more.
Those wanting to reform Islam wish to stop Muslims from practicing violent Jihad. Unfortunately for would be reformers, Jihad is central to Islamic Doctrine. Muslims engaging in violent Jihad are following their religion to the letter.
Not only that, but Islamic Doctrine is written in a way which makes it virtually impossible to reform. Changing even one strand of Islamic doctrine is a sin known as “bid’ah” or “(religious) innovation.”
This is a very serious matter in Islam. That is why so little attention is paid to contemporary opinions of Islam. The most commonly quoted Koranic commentary is by Ibn Kathir who died around 1300AD.
One of the earliest and most respected Islamic scholars was Al-Tabari. On his deathbed, he was asked if he could forgive his enemies. “I can forgive all of them” he replied, “except for those who called me an innovator” For those who still think Islam can be reformed, a Google search of the word “bid’ah should be all that is required to cure their fantasy.
Whichever way you slice and dice it, the unfortunate truth is that Islam promotes violent conquest. It does this as a way of expanding its reach. There is also no way to reform Islam.
There may be long periods where Islam is relatively peaceful. This invariably occurs when Islam is not powerful. That is the moderate kind of Islam we have had since the end of WW1 when Islam was crushed militarily. As Islam grows in numbers and power however, violence will follow as surely as night follows day.
The only way to prevent this is to convince Muslims to convert to another religion or, if they prefer, to abandon religion altogether.
This may sound like an almost impossible goal but I don’t think it is. All it will take is for the people of the non-Muslim world to stand as one and insist that Islam is evil.
We need to make it clear that Islam is the source of the Islamic world’s problems. We must be clear that it is the product of a medieval Arab bandit and his narcissistic wish to rule the world.
Islam is indefensible in rational debate. When Islamic leaders cannot refute these claims, Muslims will have their faith shattered.
They are born and raised to believe that they are the best of people and that their “Ummah” (the Islamic nation) is the best of all nations.
They are also raised to believe that they must never question this assumption. When Islam is shown to be little more than a self-serving bandit creed, Muslims will lose faith rapidly. Within a very short timeframe the whole thing will collapse.
Muslims will then finally be free to begin pursuing life, love and happiness in this life rather than the next. The benefits to all of humanity, as well as our environment will be immense.
What currently stands in the way of this process is the bizarre belief system of our own leaders and academics. It is a belief system known as moral relativism.
This dogma tells us that all religions and cultures are as good as each other. At least that is what it pretends to say. In actual fact, it believes that Western Judeo-Christian culture is inferior to all others.
That is why our leaders believe that flooding Western countries with migrants from other cultures will “enrich” and strengthen us (diversity is strength!).
Islam is a supremacist ideology. It believes in the oppression of women and non believers. It encourages slavery, violence, theft, murder and cultural destruction just to name a few.
How can any sane person believe that such a culture is equal to, or better than our liberal Western democratic culture? Western culture has driven the greatest improvement in the human situation in the history of ever.
Like all people who believe in illogical dogma however, our leaders defend it aggressively. Anyone challenging their beliefs is attacked mercilessly.
They are denounced as racists and Nazi extremists. These unfortunates may lose their jobs, face prosecution or be attacked by violent mobs of extreme left wing radicals.
For our leaders and academics to denounce Islam, they would have to repudiate their own retarded belief system. They would have to admit that all cultures and religions are not the same.
This is why they will resist this option until all others are exhausted. They will cling to the fantasy that Islam can be reformed as if their lives depended on it.
There is a silver lining to this situation. Extreme Islamic violence will not only expose the hypocrisy of Islamic dogma. It will also force us to realise that neither Islam nor moral relativism need reform.
Instead, we need to throw both of these ideologies in the dustbin and re-learn the importance of Western culture and values. We also need to realise that this process does not lead to Fascism or white supremicism.
Instead it leads to freedom, economic prosperity and the subjugation of our leaders to the will of “We the People.”
Anyone who cannot mount a spirited and articulate defence of Western values and culture should not be eligible for high office. Neither should they be considered for a teaching position.
In the meantime, there will be a great deal of unnecessary suffering. Muslim men and their victims will die in acts of suicidal violence.
Muslim women will continue to face oppression, violence, mutilation and honour killings. Middle Eastern Christians and Yazidis will continue to be ethnically cleansed from their ancient homelands.
Young Christian and non-Muslim girls will continue to be trafficked as sex slaves in places like Western Syria and Northern England. The people of the Western world will face the humanitarian and economic costs of an escalating Jihadist campaign of mass murder.
Sometime soon, the burden of our leader’s stupidity will be too great to bear. When this time comes, those who promote this ridiculous dogma will be forced from positions of power. They will then be free to seek employment in positions more suited to their intellectual ability.

Why the Marine Hymn Contains the Verse “To the Shores of Tripoli”
This very interesting and a must read piece of our history. It points out where we may be heading.
Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago the United States had declared war on Islam and Thomas Jefferson led the charge!
At the height of the eighteenth century, Muslim pirates (the “Barbary Pirates”) were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic.
They attacked every ship in sight, and held the crews for exorbitant ransoms. Those taken hostage were subjected to barbaric treatment and wrote heart-breaking letters home, begging their government and family members to pay whatever their Mohammedan captors demanded.
These extortionists of the high seas represented the North African Islamic nations of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers – collectively referred to as the Barbary Coast – and presented a dangerous and unprovoked threat to the new American Republic.
Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under the protection of Great Britain. When the U.S. declared its independence and entered into war, the ships of the United States were protected by France. However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.
Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy. Beginning in 1784, seventeen years before he would become president, Thomas Jefferson became America ‘s Minister to France. That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid bribes to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.
In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American ships, and the Dye of Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of $60,000. It was a plain and simple case of extortion, and Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any further payments. Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied nations who together could force the Islamic states into peace. A disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom.
In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli ‘s ambassador to Great Britain to ask by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.
The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
Despite this stunning admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim nations, as well as the objections of many notable American leaders, including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and would only further embolden the enemy, for the following fifteen years the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over twenty percent of the United States government annual revenues in 1800.
Jefferson was disgusted. Shortly after his being sworn in as the third President of the United States in 1801, the Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus $25,000 a year for every year forthcoming. That changed everything.
Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with his demand. The Pasha responded by cutting down the flagpole at the American consulate and declared war on the United States. Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers immediately followed suit. Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for anything beyond coastal defense, but, having watched his nation be cowed by Islamic thuggery for long enough, decided that it was finally time to meet force with force.
He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never forget. Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to seize all vessels and goods of the Pasha of Tripoli and to “cause to be done all other acts of precaution or hostility as the state of war would justify”.
When Algiers and Tunis, who were both accustomed to American cowardice and acquiescence, saw the newly independent United States had both the will and the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to Tripoli. The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years, and raged up again in 1815. The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line “to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever be known as “leathernecks” for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding enemy ships.
Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified doing in the name of their prophet and their god, disturbed Jefferson quite deeply.
America had a tradition of religious tolerance. In fact Jefferson, himself, had co-authored the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, but fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen. A religion based on supremacism, whose holy book not only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to him. His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States
This should concern every American. That Muslims have brought about women-only classes and swimming times at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools; that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged; Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities; ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks similar to the Arabic script for Allah; public schools are pulling pork from their menus; on and on and on and on….
It’s death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America . By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our own culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct knife, and helping to further the Islamists agenda. Sadly, it appears that today America’s STUPID leaders would rather be politically correct than victorious!
