Readers of this blog will know that I hold Islam to be irreformable. My basis for maintaining this is the Qur’an itself, which I understand to be future-proof. Its guarantee against its own reform is the combination of its claims that Islam is the final religion, Allah’s word may not be challenged and the command (many commands) to those who adhere to the Qur’an to kill anyone who attempts to alter the Qur’an in any way. Calls for an Islamic reformation are, therefore, a threat to Islam and therefore themselves are taken as a call to jihad — this debate amongst ex-Muslims runs beneath the surface of world events.
It is commanded of all who obey Allah to take up arms in defence of Islam. Some do so openly, others secretly. Some bide their time pretending to be peaceful, while yet others who are genuinely not interested, suddenly wake up one day and realise they’ve not been obeying Allah as they should. Some (many) reach the end of their peaceful lives never having fully submitted to the will of Allah. Meanwhile, the taking up of arms in defence of Islam, “in the way of Allah”, is everyday aided and abetted by the kafir jihadis of the West. Their weapon is “Islamophobia”. In my inbox this morning I find Kacem El Ghazzali’s piece on “Islamophobia” from which I quote:
it’s totally absurd that those who are critical of these demands are accused of “Islamophobia”. A reliable method of censorship, Islamists frequently apply this phrase to quickly dispose of any logical or reasoned arguments, while simultaneously making their opponents appear dishonorable. …What’s perplexing is that many Western liberals fall repeatedly into this trap. When it comes to Islam, under the banner of multiculturalism and misplaced tolerance, they’ve come to represent a regressive and even reactionary position.
I wonder how many terrorists got through, how many acts of terror were carried out, and how many people died, because someone feared being called “Islamophobic”. Maasha-Allah, you fuckwits.
