ISIS/ISIL “Caliph”:Christians & Jews Must Convert,”Dhimmify” Or Die.”Pure Islam” Mandates Killing Apostates…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

(Photo cred: Rozana.fm)

EVEN as many Muslims in the Mid East look on in shock at the carnage unleashed via “Pure Islam” – caught in the crossfire themselves – the fact of the matter is many more stay silent and a preponderance of others actually agree with said barbarism. What’s going on?

IN reality, there is no stopping the carnage unless Islam is stopped. Plain and simple. And while it sounds like an impossible task, it may very well extinguish itself, if only in generations to come. Nonetheless, millions more will be sacrificed on its bloody altar, as in the past. Where is this assessment coming from, especially since this blogger is not one who dabbles in fantastical thinking, believing that this scourge on earth may finally die out, though hardly within our lifetime?

BEFORE the above is addressed, the reader must internalize the underpinnings of Islam to also understand its bloody basis; its roots. It is not enough to just look on, in horror, and throw up ones hands. Towards this end, a groundbreaking policy paper was written and this blogger was asked to participate in its review. It was showcased only 2 weeks after the inception of this site, July 13, 2012. “Islam & Blood” has been featured here on several occasions, and another repeat performance is efficacious.

While the above is intrinsic to the conversation and to the reader’s knowledge base, the following link is GROUNDBREAKING .Yes, the caps are there for a reason. They are placed for much needed emphasis. In brief, it is a recent policy paper by Professor Eidelberg; a paper which this American-Israeli had the privilege to review and add her thoughts to; duly honored and humbled to have been asked to participate in his myth shattering scholarship.

Make NO mistake – its contents are earth shaking; unbelievably thought provoking; cogently analyzed; and in particular, its historical analysis and theological basis are spot on. Having read – and participated in – many policy papers this praise is not offered lightly. Therefore, sit down… put your feet up… have a drink (not the inebriating kind)…. enjoy some sweets (you may need it to lighten the mood)… and start reading – https://adinakutnicki.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/islam_and_blood.pdf . Sharing its contents may well be your most important contribution to our common struggle….

AND now that Islam’s blood pact is thoroughly understood, as depressing as it is, please keep your eyes peeled. Don’t veer away.  Besides, as is said, the truth shall set you free. Say what? Well, once reality sets in, the fact of the matter is that the blinders come off too. As such, the more truths one can amass, westerners are equipped to not only spread them, but to hammer their leaders to reveal them! A win-win. View the above as your clarion call. Your mission statement.

IN tandem, absorb the following as extra (mental) ammunition…

The Quran Says that Non-Muslims Should Not be Taken as Friends

Given that Allah hates non-Muslims to the extent that he would prevent them from knowing the truth, cause them to err and then condemn them to eternal torture for their unbelief and misdeeds, it would make little sense if he intended Muslims to treat unbelievers by the same standards that they treat each other here on earth.

The Quran says that no true Muslim would ever love anyone who resists Islam, even if it is a family member:

Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, loving those who resist Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred. (58:22)

There are at least nine places in the Quran where believers are warned not to befriend non-Muslims:

O ye who believe! Take not for friends unbelievers rather than believers: Do ye wish to offer Allah an open proof against yourselves? (4:144

In fact, anyone who does take a non-Muslim as a friend could be accused of being an unbeliever as well:

O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. (5:51)

 

Note that Christians, according to the Quran, are included in the ranks of “unbelievers”:

They indeed have disbelieved who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary (5:17)

Muhammad said that unbelievers have it out for Muslims.  They may appear harmless or friendly, but, in reality, they harbor corruption and evil intentions:

O ye who believe! Take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks: They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin: Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths: What their hearts conceal is far worse (3:118)

For the Unbelievers are unto you open enemies (4:101)

As for them, they are but plotting a scheme (86:15)

Those outside of Islam are really helpers of evil against Allah:

The Misbeliever is a helper (of Evil), against his own Lord! (25:55)

The Quran says that “hostility and hate” will exist between Muslims and infidels “for ever” until the latter “believe in Allah alone.” (60:4)

Instead of befriending non-Muslims, the Quran encourages hostility.  Muslims are ordered to fight unbelievers:

O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty.(9:123)

The Quran tells Muslims that they will spend eternity laughing at unbelievers (83:34) and mocking their suffering as they are tortured in Hell:

And the dwellers of the garden will call out to the inmates of the fire: Surely we have found what our Lord promised us to be true; have you too found what your Lord promised to be true? They will say: Yes. Then a crier will cry out among them that the curse of Allah is on the unjust. (7:44) – Muhammad got an early start on this by personally mocking his dead enemies following the Battle of Badr (Ibn Ishaq 454)

One does not befriend those over whose suffering they will later rejoice, nor does it make any sense that Muslims would befriend those whom the Quran labels “enemies of Allah” by virtue of their unbelief. 

NOW that that is settled, our western fight must be viewed as one to eliminate Shariah law, the poisonous root of all the carnage. Its mandates. So it is certainly not a shock that ISIS/ISIL, Boko Haram (or whatever hydra thereof) mandates the purging of Christians, Jews and all apostates. It is evidenced within:

Evidence One:

HOW many more times does it need to be reiterated: Islamic cannibalism is rooted in its relationship to blood!

Evidence Two:

MOREOVER, what is beyond dispute is the purging of Christians (Jews too) from anywhere that Islam claims as part of their turf, so to speak: Dar al-Islam (Arabicدار الإسلام‎ literally house/abode of Islam; or Dar as-Salam, house/abode of Peace; or Dar al-Tawhid, house/abode of monotheism) is a term used by Muslim scholars to refer to those countries where Muslims can practice their religion freely. It’s the area of the world under the rule of Islam, literally, “the home of Islam” or “the home of submission.” [1] These are usually Islamic cultures wherein Muslims represent the majority of the population, and so the government promises them protection. Most Dar al-Islam areas are surrounded by other Islamic societies to ensure public protection.  

Sick, twisted bastards.

Evidence Three

HOW many more have to be sacrificed on the altar of Islamic barbarism, as its adherents keep slaying and slaughtering in the name of Islam, yet many Churches (synagogues too) remain stone cold silent?

Christian Pastor Attacked by Muslims Warns Israel – Video 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X55bcNuMhKI

Think of it this way: what will it take to get American (western) leaders, even counter-terrorism experts, to finally scream the truth? Realistically, likely a mega terror attack, one which will be impossible to pretend that what is isn’t. That’s the truth.

Convert, Pay Tax, Or Die, Islamic State Warns Christians

Islamist insurgents have issued an ultimatum to northern Iraq’s dwindling Christian population to either convert to Islam, pay a religious levy or face death, according to a statement distributed in the militant-controlled city of Mosul.

The statement issued by the Islamic State, the al Qaeda offshoot which led last month’s lightning assault to capture swathes of north Iraq, and seen by Reuters, said the ruling would come into effect on Saturday.

It said Christians who wanted to remain in the “caliphate” that the Islamic State declared this month in parts of Iraq and Syria must agree to abide by terms of a “dhimma” contract – a historic practice under which non-Muslims were protected in Muslim lands in return for a special levy known as “jizya”.

“We offer them three choices: Islam; the dhimma contract – involving payment of jizya; if they refuse this they will have nothing but the sword,” the announcement said.

A resident of Mosul said the statement, issued in the name of the Islamic State in Iraq’s northern province of Nineveh, had been distributed on Thursday and read out in mosques.

It said Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which the group has now named Caliph Ibrahim, had set a Saturday deadline for Christians who did not want to stay and live under those terms to “leave the borders of the Islamic Caliphate”.

“After this date, there is nothing between us and them but the sword,” it said.

The Nineveh decree echoes one that the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, the former name for the Islamic State, issued in the Syrian city of Raqqa in February, demanding that Christians pay the jizya levy in gold and curb displays of their faith in return for protection.

The concept of dhimma, governing non-Muslims living under Islamic rule, dates back to the early Islamic era in the seventh century, but was largely abolished during the Ottoman reforms of the mid-19th century.

Mosul, once home to diverse faiths, had a Christian population of around 100,000 a decade ago, but waves of attacks on Christians since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion to topple Saddam Hussein have seen those numbers collapse.

The resident of Mosul who saw the Islamic State announcement estimated the city’s Christian population before last month’s militant takeover at around 5,000. The vast bulk of those have since fled, leaving perhaps only 200 in the city, he said.

IN a similar fashion, yet sans as much “fanfare” as in Iraq, Syria etc., traditionally Christian enclaves in Israel (in Judea and Samaria, aka the “West Bank”), in particular, Bethlehem, now under control of Islamists via the accursed Oslo Peace/Death Accords, has seen a complete dwindling of its population. Many have been murdered, while others have managed to flee for their lives. The rest are living in a petrified state of limbo, mostly via dhimmi status and the like. However, this bit of “news” is kept mostly on the QT, lest it tarnishes the PA/Fatah “halo”.

 

 

 

ON the other hand, all territory under Israeli control has seen an increase in the Christian population and all that it entails. Regardless, no one in their right mind cannot see that Islam is a cancer which must be excised.

Whatever it takes…

ISLAMIC BARBARISM:DIRE WARNINGS TO AMERICANS(WESTERNERS)VIA “APOSTATES” FROM ISLAM!Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

FROM the inception of this site, the core mission within has been consistent and immutable. Set in stone. Non-wavering.

And even though this blogger is known, on occasion, to be stubborn – some might suggest, mule-like – there is something to be said for sticking to one’s guns. In any case, why should Islamists be the only ones to hold steadfast to their goals, however barbaric they are? Besides, isn’t it high time that those of us who possess the requisite knowledge base, plus a megaphone, share what we know with others? After all, what use is delving into the underbelly of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia in specific, and Islamic jihad in general, if unwilling to share with others? Fear should never be one’s modus operandi, nor excuse to turn tail, though caution is preferable to recklessness.

That being noted, a plethora of evidence has been amassed at this site, pointing in one general direction: yes, Islamic barbarism is a global scourge, if not tamped down it will engulf the entire free world. No one is suggesting it will happen tomorrow, but there is every possibly that freedom’s lynch pins will unravel within the next decade. The markers towards a cruel end to western liberty are so clear it will be impossible to hide them from one’s children and future generations to come. In effect, this current generation of adults (anyone of majority age) will become most well known for their cowardice and unwillingness to preserve basic freedoms, those which others before them sacrificed their lives for. Shameful. 

Islamic Barbarism One:

IF one really wants to know what’s what, look no further than to those who lived under Shariah law’s boot, yet managed to escape with their lives intact. Many millions were not so fortunate, they lie six feet under. Countless others couldn’t even have proper burials, their body parts were blown to smithereens. Yes, this IS life – and death – under Islam.

Part I. What Muslims and Arabs Say About Islam

Aryan Hirsi Ali

Is Aryan Hirsi Ali a racist? She was born in Somalia, from which she escaped to avoid an arranged marriage, and she eventually became a Member of Parliament in the Netherlands. She helped produce a film with Theo Van Gogh which criticized Islam’s treatment of women. Van Gogh was shot to death by a Muslim in retaliation, and a note was pinned to his chest with a knife — a note that threatened Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She made her way to the United States, and has since written two books critical of Islam: Infidel and Nomad: From Islam to America: A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilizations.

Wafa Sultan

Is Wafa Sultan a racist? She was born and raised in Syria, and was trained as a psychiatrist. On February 21, 2006, she took part in an Al Jazeera discussion program, arguing with the hosts about Samuel P. Huntington’s Clash of Civilizations theory. A six-minute composite video of her response was widely circulated on blogs and through email. The New York Times estimated it was seen at least one million times. In the video she criticized Muslims for treating non-Muslims differently, and for not recognizing the accomplishments of Jews and other non-Muslims. The video was the most-discussed video of all time with over 260,000 comments on YouTube.

Nonie Darwish

Is Nonie Darwish a racist? Now an American, she grew up a Muslim in Egypt, the daughter of an Egyptian general whose family was part of President Nasser’s inner circle. Darwish founded Former Muslims United with Ibn Warraq, an organization dedicated, in part, to helping Muslims reject the inherent intolerance, violence, and supremacism in their doctrine. Darwish is the author of two books critical of Islam, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law, and Now They Call Me Infidel: Why I Renounced Jihad for America, Israel, and the War on Terror. And she is an outspoken critic of Sharia law.

The list of apostates from Islam, having escaped in one piece, can be viewed within; humbled and grateful for having been asked to participate in its groundbreaking scholarship. Thank you, Prof Paul Eidelberg, for placing your faith in said assistance.

In this regard, the following Pastor emits his own clarion call, chiefly within warning shot of America, the heretofore leading nation of the free world. Just (mentally) add his name to the list  (of more well known escapees from Islam – yes, they ARE escapees), but do not become repulsed by his physical appearance. It is NOT the time to look away!

Egypt Burns - 8

Pastor Burned By Muslims Warns America About Impending Islam

Pastor Umar Mulinde was born in Uganda to a Muslim family with his father being an area-Muslim leader. But after Mulinde converted to Christianity he was attacked for his new faith. Mulinde went on record to tell his story and issue a warning to America.

Because he was raised as a Muslim Mulinde says, “I know whatever a good Muslim and a true Muslim… and a leader in Islam must know.” But once he converted to Christianity, he was hated by the Muslims in his community.

Mulinde was called out one night by a voice in the darkness. “Pastor,” the man called. As Mulinde turned to respond to the voice, half of his face was covered in acid by the man in the dark. In an effort to escape, Mulinde turned and ran for help. Half of his face and part of the back of his head was badly burned by the acid. But despite this, Mulinde still has hope.

A tearful moment happens at 4 minutes when he says, “I realized, I had fallen in the hands of my enemies… It’s not because of this [pointing to his scarred face] that I am crying. It’s because of doing something right and then you’re paid something wrong.”

When asked why he wasn’t dead when he should be, Mulinde responds, “God is mighty.”

He then turned to deliver a powerful word to America.

 

“God Almighty has given you the grace. Whatever you do in America influences everyone in the world. You have that grace. One thing that Islam is doing to defeat you is causing you to be coward and fearful to stand up and speak against the invasion of the Islamization that is going on in your country. Stand up before it’s late. …If you get [sic] afraid today, within time, you will find your children and your grandchildren being Muslims and torturing other people. Stand up now and defeat the challenge of the global Islamization agenda.”

 

Now, for those who tune out any religious overtones, be they Jewish, Christian or what not, never mind. The fact of the matter is that cowardice – whatever ones spiritual or atheist perspective – is a (silent) killer. It is one which jihadists not only count on, but which gun control freaks (leftists and cohorts) exploit. In other words, what better way to exert TOTAL control, then through disarming the public, causing them to become absolute captives? And can anyone dare imagine the lightening speed which Islamists and their leftist counterparts would utilize to overcome the (patriotic) American public, if, heaven forfend, disarmed? Breakneck.

Yet, it is entirely understandable that westerners feel hopeless, boxed in, by the jihadist’s immutable fervor, Islamic warriors that they are. Alas, if additional rallying cries are required to lift your spirits – and stoking oneself mentally is imperative – as well as to move you to action, think of yourselves like titanium (this blogger does), a substance most of us studied via basic chemistry classes, when laboring over the periodic table.

As such, revel in this site’s uplifting gift to you….among countless others….

The Ever Elusive Quest: Chasing Palestinian-Israeli “Peace” Illusions/Delusions…What Can Israeli Zionists Do To Stop It…DEAD In Its Tracks? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

For the umpteenth time the world is transfixed by the “peace process.” One needn’t even identify the referenced nations, for their identities are (purposefully) seared within the world’s consciousness. It is as if there are no other warring parties in the world. And via a mesmerizing illusion – simply dependent upon mixing this and that potion – this time “peace” will be in the offing between PA Arabs and Israel.

The so called “smarties” behave, and religiously believe, as if by their sheer force of momentum “peace” will break through, but only if they just push Israel a little harder! Thus, if they exert enough pressure points upon Israel’s leadership (read, twist enough arms…paradoxically not a hard feat at all) somehow – this go around – they will be able to conjure up an agreeable formula, one in which the elusive “peace” wand will magically appear. As such, poof, its ingredients will usher in the ever elusive pipe dream. Alas – and herein lies the caveat – this wondrous breakthrough will only come to pass if enough Israeli concessions, gestures and giveaways are sacrificed upon the (‘peace’) table, and Israel’s “true believers”, leftists, are more than willing to ante up. Please. Been there. Done that. Israel’s graves are full to the brim with said “sacrifices.”  Its hospital rehabilitation wards too.

Now, it is one thing for the world’s busybodies to engage in the “business of peace”, however, very few pundits talk about the insanity of Israel’s leaders participating in this dangerous and deadly charade. Yes, Israel is not an island onto itself. And, indeed, its leaders are under enormous international pressure (mostly from Washington) to give “peace a chance.”  However, one would think – and rightfully so – that being burnt, almost to a crisp (with thousands of Jewish graves, and many more maimed for life due to the “process”, thereby, proving its insanity) would disabuse them of participating any longer in this hideous march of madness. IF only.

So, the million dollar question becomes: Why do Israel’s leaders continually place their citizens in jeopardy, even as their so called “peace partners” continually exhort for their nation’s destruction, concomitantly, preparing generations of children for murderous jihad?

According to pre-eminent political scientist Professor Paul Eidelberg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Eidelberg, an American-Israeli PhD from the University of Chicago) “It needs to be understood and emphasized that anyone, regardless of his subjective ideas or feelings, who supports the creation of an Arab-Islamic state in Judea and Samaria is OBJECTIVELY advocating Israel’s destruction. This applies even to an Israeli Prime Minister!

In support of this provocative statement, I offer certain demonstrable facts which indicate there is not a stitch of evidence that contradicts the Palestinian Authority’s commitment to destroy Israel.

This commitment, which is rooted in Islamic theology, is proclaimed in the PLO-Palestinian Charter. Any honest or decent human can read in that Charter their murderous hatred of Jews and Israel. This hatred permeates Palestinian propaganda. It is manifested in the education and military training of Arab children. This ghoulish hatred promises a continuation of the 20 years of Oslo terror that has murdered and maimed 15,000 Jewish women, men, and children…….”

Moreover, many of the heretofore inexplicable answers can be found within a recent interview given by this writer at Inquisitr.com. But in the main, the root of Israel’s folly can be found in the incestuous relationship between its political leaders and its civil society elites. According to Dr. Martin Sherman, Founder of Israel Institute For Strategic Studies “Through their un-elected positions of influence and authority, civil society elites shape the political discourse and hence the perceived constraints on decision-makers…a trinity of interacting civil society elites, comprising groups and individuals who dominate the legal establishment, the mainstream media and much of the nation’s academia – particularly, but not exclusively, in the social sciences and humanities, including law.

These elites, through their unelected positions of influence and authority that their professions confer on them, can to a large measure shape the content and the conduct of the political discourse in the country, and hence the constraints that decision makers perceive themselves to be subject to.

This clearly provides them the capacity to have a dominant impact on the formulation of national policy and to impose their overarching worldview on the elected incumbents, no matter what the latter’s political manifesto or electoral pledges to the voters may be…”

Average Israeli citizens (secular and religious Zionists alike) are scratching/banging their heads, hoping to come up with a ‘plan of action’ – to stop the ‘process’ dead in its tracks. A still birth. So, it is only appropriate to offer up to fellow Zionists some ‘marching orders’, not conjured up via this American-Israeli, but by, none other than, her mentor, Professor Louis Rene Beres – 

Surrendering Judea and Samaria (“West Bank”) in the context of civil disobedience, Jewish law, and the Middle East Peace Process.…..

Sometimes, tragedy and irony may arrive together. Now that it is reportedly back “on track,” the so-called Middle East Peace Process threatens Israel with additional dismemberment, and eventual disappearance.

Aware of these intolerable prospects, thousands of Israelis who are opposed to any further existential surrenders may soon prepare for an appropriate response to “Palestine.” Whatever its particular shape and expression, this “post-peace” response to a new Arab state, one that would be carved out of Israel’s own still-living body, may take some recognizable form of civil disobedience.

To be sure, the Netanyahu Government, inexplicably confident in Palestinian compliance with pre-state agreements on “demilitarization,” will object strongly to any such tactics. Nonetheless, civil disobedience has a long and distinguished tradition in jurisprudence and democratic theory.  In part, as the following argument will make clear, certain roots of this tradition actually lie in Jewish Law.

From its  beginnings, Jewish law has been viewed as a manifestation of God’s will.  Biblically, the law is referred to as the “word of God,” never of humankind.  God, therefore, is the sole authentic legislator, and righteousness necessarily lies in observance of His law.  Moreover, for ancient Israel as well as for the ancient Greeks, the absence of righteousness is expected to place at risk the lives and fortunes of the entire community……

YET, many legitimate questions still arise as to why a leader, such as PM Netanyahu, who was groomed within the national Zionist camp, would even advocate for a “two-state solution.”  A very incisive analysis was penned by Caroline Glick – Bibi and the true believers. Dr. Martin Sherman’s latest J Post column tops the charts, Resign, just resign! Clearly, these analyses are very depressing, but no less necessary. In fact, Dr. Sherman’s recent interview at Inquistr.com, Confronting Israel’s Precarious Future: An Interview With Dr. Martin Sherman: Part One demonstrates precisely how Israel’s leaders, via the “peace process”, have evinced a grave dereliction of duty, thereby, placing the nation of Israel in a position of mortal peril. 

All of the above are must reads, if you truly want to understand how/why Israel’s leadership have brought Israel to the brink of disaster.

Moreover, the answers within some of the questions also lie inside a previous op-ed (written by yours truly) at American Thinker, “The Paradox of Israeli Politics: Vote Right, Get Left.”

Basically, there is a colossal tug of war between Israel’s civil society elites – chiefly hailing from academia, media, legal, cultural and diplomatic circles – and the non-existent electoral responsibility between MK’s (Parlimentarians) and the Zionist public, whose votes actually reflect the will of majority public. In this regard, Israel’s political leadership are held captive to those who have the largest megaphones and pocketbooks. Surely, this does not include the average citizen and their political will, in large part due to Israel’s gravely dysfunctional political system.

To wit, Israel’s President (a figurehead/ceremonial post to begin with, and its office is not endowed with policy making decisions), Shimon Peres, is still trotting around the world (a real feat of magic, being that he is past 90!) and selling “peace dreams.”  He infamously intoned that “sacrifices for peace” – alluding to the dead and maimed – are necessary to reach a historic accord! Hmm.

Well, I am not sure about world onlookers, but those who were “sacrificed” – as well as their surviving family members and friends – would beg to differ.

But, then again, President Peres and the perennial “peace chasers” are still open for business! So, they must know better, acutely emblematic within:

State fights for court to uphold prisoner release, despite terror victims’ group petition

08/07/2013
“The state files request in response to recent Almagor petition to block mid-August prisoner release; argues gov’t believes prisoner release gives Israel potential for improving security situation……”

At its bare base, Israel’s leadership truly believes that releasing bloody-handed Jew-killers (though their hearts are aching…blah, blah) will IMPROVE the nation’s security! Can you see with whom we are dealing…on the one hand lies our enemies, on the other stands our Oslo-driven mentally besieged leadership. NOTHING good will come of this – at least for Israel’s (and diaspora’s) Zionists.

G-D, SAVE US FROM OUR FANTASISTS!!

Israel’s Strategic Disasters Tie Into Its Fatally Flawed Political System: “Regime Change” Will Usher In Authentic Self-Determination…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Hot on the heels of this blogger’s recent interview with Inquisitr’s political editor, Wolff Bachner – http://www.inquisitr.com/671508/the-inquisitr-interviews-adina-kutnicki-the-reality-of-life-for-an-israeli-patriot/ – one cannot help but see the handwriting on the wall pertaining to the catastrophe which awaits Israel, if a volte face in strategic policy is not undertaken post haste. One needn’t be a psychic to extrapolate within all the guideposts, but one does have to possess a solid modicum of regional acumen, plus a deep understanding of Israel’s inherently flawed political system.

YET before we undertake said journey, a review of Dr. Martin Sherman’s latest Jerusalem Post column is mandatory reading. It will set the stage, thus, explaining Israel’s grave strategic crisis, irrespective of events currently encircling her borders. After all, Israel has never been in the same neighborhood as Kansas, but its strategic disasters keep piling on! Therefore, ‘My Prediction: Please help prove it wrong!’  –  http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Columnists/My-prediction-Please-help-prove-it-wrong-315759 – is imperative to absorb. And once completed, his interview (June 12, 2013) with Israel’s most popular radio host, Tamar Yonah (enjoying a world wide audience) on Israel National Radio, is a must listen – http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Radio/News.aspx/4726#.UbmE7Pkwdn2 . They piggyback each other. He is the master of Israel’s strategic domain – http://www.strategic-israel.org/.

Having fully absorbed its contents, readers are ready to internalize how Israel got from there to here, thus understanding how Israel’s fatally flawed political/electoral system underlies crisis after crisis. And for this lesson we turn to Professor Paul Eidelberg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Eidelberg), unarguably Israel’s foremost expert on its political system. In addition, a primer is presented through this blogger’s analysis at American Thinker, ‘The Paradox of Israeli Politics:Vote Right, Get Left’. It contributes to said discussion and (hopefully) breaks things down into easily digestible components – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/06/22/the-paradox-of-israeli-politicsvote-right-get-left/.

Onto the main thesis….

‘National Self-Determination in Israel Requires “Regime Change”

Prof. Paul Eidelberg  

National self-determination in Israel has been violated by the anti-Zionist policy of “Land for Peace” (LFP). Like his predecessor, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is wedded to this left-wing inspired policy. However, by virtue of his being the leader of the Likud Party, which most Israelis mistakenly deem Zionist, he has become the greatest danger to Israel’s survival. (Tzippi Livni would not have dared endorse a Palestinian state as Bibi explicitly did on June 14, 2009.)

In pursuing LFP with the Palestinian Authority (PA), Netanyahu has been outsmarted by the Arabs. While he sees that the success of LFP requires the cooperation of the Arabs, the Arabs see that the success of this policy would kill the goose that has laid their golden eggs! I allude to the hundreds of millions of dollars the Arabs have received each year from the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, thanks to PA’s unceasing terrorist attacks. The difference in perception consists in the fact that terrorism pays, whereas peace sucks.

The biggest suckers are the Israelis, who have paid in blood and treasure for the intellectually bankrupt policy of “land for peace.” Their leaders have also fostered the absurd notion that this policy is also mandated by democracy, a notion that misleads Israelis who proudly believe they live in a democracy. After all, in what democracy do voters have a choice between 33 parties to lead their country? Our misled Israelis ignore the fact that no matter which party (or party coalition) has been elected to lead their country since 1993, the government invariably pursues the policy of “land for peace,” even though this policy has resulted to date in 15,000 Jewish casualties!

It’s obvious that changing parties has not stopped Israel’s territorial retreat or even diminished worldwide hostility toward the Jewish state. It seems that more important than Jewish casualties is the preservation of Israel’s inept system of multiparty cabinet government, the result of Proportional Representation with a low electoral threshold, which this has endowed Israel with the reputation of being a democracy—than which nothing is more sacred.

It matters not that after exercising their political freedom on Election Day, the citizens of Israel actually relapse into servitude, forced to experience the undeviating and degrading policy of “land for peace” that has soaked Israel in Jewish blood.

How charming are the new parties that so often spring up in democratic Israel thanks to its low electoral threshold. Too bad they invariably fall in lock-step with the policy of “land for peace” which Israel’s leaders have imposed on their people. But what more can be expected of Israeli prime ministers who prefer to appease the murderers of Jewish men, women, and children rather than kill them? Of course, these cretins and cravens can provide all sorts of excuses for their cowardice and imbecility. Like Muslims, they adopt the pose of victimhood vis-à-vis the Great White Father, Uncle Sam, on whose arms and alms they rely for their salvation. Lacking heart or spiritedness, they also lack intellect—a teaching of C. S. Lewis’s charming little book The Abolition of Man, one of whose chapters is entitled “men without chests.”

Israel’s political system has not produced men with chests, men who are not enthralled by the policy of territory for peace. Israel therefore needs much more than another multiparty election. Needed is nothing less than “regime change,” and this can only be initiated by the people, a people fed up with Israel’s obsolete and decrepit system of government.

The question then arises, “How can Israelis, proud of their democracy, be aroused to want regime change?  Obviously, one must first show that Israeli democracy as a myth. This I have done in books and in countless articles. Since polls have indicated that 90% of the public regards Israel’s government as corrupt, as consisting of job-seekers animated by personal and partisan interests instead of the common good, the public opinion required for regime change exists, but it needs to be galvanized. For this purpose one needs a man—or a woman—with a chest.

He or she will find helpful ideas in Eric Hoffer, The True Believer as well as in present writer’s book The Myth of Israeli Democracy. The latter elucidates the main ideas and general structure of a normative democracy based on Judaic principles further elaborated in various books of mine. I suggest that a small team consisting of respected and talented men and women be formed to initiate a Jewish movement for regime change. National self-determination in Israel requires a Judaic reconstruction of the state. To my inevitable nay-Sayers I conclude with these words of the Alter of Kelm: “Ask not if a thing is possible; ask only if it is necessary.”

To be sure, in comparison to the juntas surrounding Israel, its political apparatus is a paragon of democracy and stability. However, its bastardized electoral system contributes to untold strategic disasters, thereby, Israel’s leadership are incapable of executing long-term nation-saving policies. More often than not, they operate in their own self interest, totally unaccountable to anyone but their main handlers – domestic and foreign. 

IF anything, “regime change”, via a complete overhaul of the system, can’t come soon enough. Hopefully it is not too late.

The Islamist-in-Chief’s Taqiyya-Driven Hand In Resurrecting The Ottoman Empire & Its Geo-Political Knock-On Effects…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

There are many pieces to the Islamist-in-Chief’s (seemingly) inexplicable foreign policy disasters which are, for the most part, swathing across the Mid East. And even though the stage was set for certain realignments before he soiled the People’s House, his reign has ushered the necessary chess pieces into place. “Magic-like”, the generally volatile regime has exploded into incendiary chaos and resultant fires. 

As indicated in previous commentaries, geo-politics should be viewed as partially an outgrowth of designing a chess board towards an eventual outcome, but oftentimes said master plans are delayed due to happenstance. But there was nothing coincidental about the Islamist-in-Chief’s dictates to Mubarak – GO NOW – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/13/coming-full-circle-the-planned-empowerment-of-the-muslim-mafia-aka-brotherhood-via-egypt-most-populous-arab-country-under-the-guidance-of-barack-hussein-obama-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/…and it was designed to set the chain reaction elicited below.

Freedom of Speech & Its Evisceration Of All Meaning: Its Collision Course With Moral Relativism/Historicism…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Some constructs are obvious on their face, but many require a helping hand from those who are imbued with deeper critical thinking skills. And, this is what separates average folks from ones who are blessedly endowed with a true ability to see from there to here. It must be emphasized, this blog would be a lesser force for enlightenment, if not for the wisdom gleaned through several associates – https://adinakutnicki.com/about/ . And for that, among  other things, there is immense gratitude.

That being said, the western construct of freedom of speech is bandied about without much understanding of its true meaning/intent. But those of us who studied Constitutional Law do have a leg up on its interpretation, but tragically leftist legal scholars have perverted its essence. Herein lies its basis: 

‘First Amendment of the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution’

CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW RESPECTING AN ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF; OR ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, OR OF THE PRESS; OR THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE PEACEABLY TO ASSEMBLE, AND TO PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES.

The Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution was ratified on December 15, 1791
“Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime . . . .” — Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, dissenting Ginzberg v. United States, 383 U.S. 463 (1966)

Its intrinsic understanding couldn’t be any more compelling, particularly due to today’s upside down, PC-driven world. A world in which moral relativism/historicism has stripped bare any rendering of good vs evil, yet at the same time some speech is “preferred” speech. In reality, the leadership of the free world, one which is as morally compromised as can be (https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/15/regime-gone-wild-obama-inc-repeatedly-caught-with-their-pants-down-where-is-this-leading-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/) has become the arbiter of which speech is allowable, and which is forbidden. Hence, the following has become the western “norm”, as AG Holder (Obama Inc’s chief’s legal enforcer) chills the public discourse – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/28/alert-radical-in-chief-obama-tasks-illegally-bent-ag-holder-to-criminalize-islamic-speech-via-thuggish-un-dictates-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

Yet, if more heft is required to delineate why freedom of speech, in its Constitutional interpretation, has become DOA, peer within what is at stake…onto its chopping block – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/22/first-amendment-rights-on-the-chopping-block-via-criminalizing-criticism-of-islam-addendum-to-shariah-law-its-silencing-of-all-dissent-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

Enter, once again, Professor Paul Eidelberg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Eidelberg), gifting us sorely needed critical thinking skills.

Freedom of Speech

Prof. Paul Eidelberg – 

Freedom of speech is not an end-in-itself or merely an exercise in self-expression. Nor is it the meaningless prattle of children—although much babbling often occurs among adults. Rightly understood, speech manifests reason, the quintessential function of which is to communicate ideas, to inquire into their truth or falsity, their expediency or inexpediency, their justice or injustice.

Since speech is an intellectual/moral phenomenon, to sever it from reason, truth, and justice is to relegate this distinctively human faculty to a mere instrument of self-aggrandizement.  This is the tendency of normless as opposed to normative democracy, a tendency that degrades man and makes a mockery of his right to freedom of speech. It has also made nonsense of the term “liberal.”

In the lexicon of America’s Founding Fathers, a “liberal” was a person free from prejudice, that is, from unexamined opinions. “Liberals” could be friends despite their differences because what they held in common was more important than their differences”: confident belief in the efficacy of reason and in the existence of immutable truths concerning justice. Hence Jefferson could say in his First Inaugural Address, “We are all Republicanswe are all Federalists”—a perfectly liberal sentiment.

Unfortunately, the pillars of classical liberalism were shattered during the twentieth century, primarily by invasion of historical relativism in the halls of learning. Today, in the minds of most liberals—also called “Progressives”—truth is relative to time and place. Like Darwinism, truth is evolutionary. But why “change” should be “progressive” and not retrogressive is hardly obvious. Nevertheless, it’s the mantra of politicians who know how to arouse discontent and democratic envy.

Indeed, as a result of democratic envy, justice in contemporary America has been reduced to equality—equality abstracted from a person’s efforts or contribution to the common good. We see, therefore, that just as freedom of speech has been severed from ethical constraints, so equality has been severed from merit.

Now, it needs to be emphasized that if freedom of speech is divorced from truth, democracy is no more justifiable than tyranny. Stated in a more general way, if there are no valid or objective standards as to how man should live, then there are no rational grounds for preferring democracy to tyranny. This is a logical consequence of moral relativism. Notice, moreover, that moral relativism does not logically justify the toleration of all lifestyles. Relativism undermines any objective grounds for preferring tolerance to intolerance. Even if relativism were true, it would be deadly, especially when confronted by Islamic absolutism, whose mantra is the love of death!

The only rational defense of freedom of speech or of intellectual freedom is that it can facilitate the quest for truth, including the truth concerning how man should live. But no such quest can even begin unless we already know, in some general and authoritative way, what is right and wrong. Clearly, the claim to academic freedom can have no justification unless it is commonly understood that it is wrong to cheat or deceive, to plagiarize or steal, to defame or murder. This suggests that moral relativists, who very much dominate the academia, take civilization for granted.

The true father of civilization is none other than Abraham, the father of the Jewish people. In his discovery of the one and only God—in Abraham’s monotheism—the God of Nature is also the God of History. This monotheism is the only solid foundation for the moral unity of human nature and the idea of the human community—an idea remote from Islam, which posits the primacy of force. To the contrary, the God of Abraham posits the primacy of reason. This is why freedom of speech has its home not in the dismal and distorted monotheism of Islam—a harbinger of death—but in the life-enhancing monotheism of Judaism.

In contrast to Islam, which regards all infidels as guilty, Abraham questions God that the imminent destruction Sodom and Gomorrah may result in the death of some innocent lives. But the point requiring emphasis in the context of this article is that the freedom of speech displayed by Abraham was manifested again and again by the prophets of Israel, who fearlessly admonished kings. Why so? Because the laws of God transcend the laws of men.

But isn’t this teaching of Abraham manifested in America’s Declaration of Independence, which admonished the king of Great Britain on behalf of the “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”?

For an eyeful regarding freedom of speech, and where it is relegated within the current U.S. landscape, this should set the (legal) record straight – http://www.wnd.com/2013/05/judge-lets-muslim-violence-silence-christians/ 

And, while the above is surely not the ever patient Prof’s maiden voyage into this insidious maelstrom, precipitously due to moral relativism/historicism, there are always lessons to impart – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/23/the-incalculable-price-of-moral-relativism-the-co-option-of-freedom-of-speech-its-direct-nexus-to-bostons-jihad-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/Most significantly, the moral decline of America – the west’s guiding light – can be traced back to historicism, the twin pillar/devil to moral relativism.

As such, Professor Paul Eidelberg is incontrovertibly the master of its domain. Learn his lessons well! Pay them forward!
