the death of innocence ... and islam shall reap what it has sown ... it shall ride the wild whirlwind ...
preface: i ocassionally get accused by the hanky wringers at daily kos, little green footballs and the professional granny at barth notes of being a heartless killer, or failing proof of any factual basis in the assertion, recommending heartless killing to my "followers." both of 'em, i presume. http://wintersoldier2008.typepad.com/summer_patriot_winter_sol/2011/11/i-have-made-rationalwiki-whatever-that-is-.html . (oddly enough, the page has received some 1,288 views since posted. i find that almost, but not quite, extraordinary, ... , that so many people have to be told what to think about me, from someone in "authority." it is, in its own little way, sorta laughable.)
well, o.k. i have recommended killing to defend ones self, or ones liberty.
but, i have a pretty well thought out basis for doing so, at least in my opinion. take a look at the writings below, and get yourself inculcated into these issues, for they may become timely.
and, this is my chief point.
the things that i recommend, are recommended in response to the unrelenting campaigns of killing and intimidation waged by the left, and its henchman, islam, against the governments and civilian populations of the west and the undeveloped world.
tit for tat, as it were. john jay @ 10.03.2012 end preface.

update: welcome aboard, "loonwatch" and "daily kos" readers, come to see the elephant. my reply to the articles there, may be found here. http://wintersoldier2008.typepad.com/summer_patriot_winter_sol/2010/08/well-it-is-an-interesting-little-world-we-live-in-isnt-it--i-have-come-under-fire-for-some-language-in-a-post-about-angelo.html
update, oct. 3, 2012: this wonderful post at "atlas shrugs," regarding a presidential order signed by bark "no bite" obama reinstating foreign aid to countries that arm children in "liberation movements," http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2012/10/epicevil-obama-reverses-bush-era-ban-on-foreign-aid-to-countries-using-child-soldiers-savage.html#comments .
go to the link, and see a wonderful photo of a leftist/muslim/people's liberation warrior holding kalashnikov rifle that is almost as tall as he is. he is a child. and, he is a killer, and soon quite likely to be a pathological killer before he reaches the age of majority in most countries.
dimes to donuts that he is muslim. dimes to donuts that he aims to kill infidels. hint: that's me, and that's you, and that's anyone who isn't muslim. end update.
the left's contribution to the killing, revisited, oct 3, 2012: i am going to link to a post previously published here, to make sure that you, gentle reader, understand the linkage of leftist killing to the killing rampage of islamic jihad. what i right of islam, is as applicable to what i write of the left. http://wintersoldier2008.typepad.com/summer_patriot_winter_sol/2011/07/they-reap-what-they-have-sown-.html . they wage unremitting war against the regimes of the west, and they wage unremitting war against us, the civilian population. don't take the bullshit from your "liberal friends" anything to the contrary. and, your "liberal friends" are morally, ethically, and in my mind, legally complicit. look it up, if you don't understand. end update.
the death of innocence. the death of islam.
the aim of the great propaganda mill that is terrorism was that by the very acts of brutality and bestiality engaged in, there would be brought attention to the fact of palestinian and islamic victimhood at the hands of israel and the united states/the west.
it was said by its intellectual enablers, you cannot ignore our plight, and you will suffer our savagery until you pay attention to us.
it was and is a theatre of the macabre absurd, in which “victims” murder their “perpetrators” in the most heinous fashion. and, by and large, it has been a campaign of much utility to islam, as with each outrage the left would trumpet, see, islam brings to your attention its suffering at the hands of israel, and the left & progressive elements would proclaim their solidarity with the muslim world.
in diplomacy, and amongst the intelligentsia, the cause of “palestine” is supported, even to the foolishness of endorsing the martyrdom of the “flotilla people” as they attack the israeli military and israeli sovereignty with quite predictable results.
to the less sophisticated among us, it simply appeared that islam brought to our attention its savagery, and lack of gratitude. this simple observation seemed heightened in its truth, in the recognition that “palestine” was subsidized at every turn by the united states, the euro union, the united nations, and of all people, by the israelis, in the form of tons of foodstuffs, medical supplies, money, capital investment, and most absurd of all, actual arms and weaponry supplied to abbas and hamas in contravention of the most basic common sense.
and, seemingly, islam has had a remarkably successful run with this campaign, wowing the sophisticates, the erudite, the rubes, and the gullible and the carelessly indifferent with equal measure.
there seemed no limit upon credulity, no shortage of the credulous.
just as there seemed no limit upon the heinous acts of the terror, no shortage of victims, sheep to the slaughter.
an added benefit to this terror campaign, perhaps one not sought by islam, … , hey, who knows, ask one of the p.r. dudes who runs the terror, … , the social scientists, the flacks, the academics who advise muslim/arabic government just how far they can push the west, … , is that the islamic terror seems to have slaughtered the capacity and will of the west to feel moral outrage against the acts perpetrated against it.
who thinks of daniel pearl, except his family? who didn’t say when the poor naïf who went to the middle east, the big kid with the beard, got his head cut off while he sobbed, well he deserved it, going some place like that? who remembers the names of the contractors who were killed, their bodies hung on the bridge in fallujah, and then burned where they hung, only to have their body parts drug through the streets by cheering crowds of men and boys, triumphant to kill in the name of islam. who thinks of the mobs with the bodies of the crew of the blackhawk, parading their victory?
and perhaps here, to my mind, the matter turns.
irreversibly, it seems to me, against islam. for islam has taught the west something that perhaps islam did not intend, and perhaps to a degree it never foresaw. and, which foretells the doom of islam. it destroyed its own shield.
islam taught us that islam did not care who it killed, whether combatants, or what we would have termed in an earlier & more enlightened age, whether they were morally and ethically those “innocent” of any of the wrongdoings islam asserted perpetrated against itself.
islamic savagery consumed all.—
it consumed without regard to whether the victim had human feelings or emotions or family or loved ones or whether the person was in a healing profession or sought the advancement of mankind, or, whether, in fact, the person regarded islam with ambiguity or hatred or friendly regard. it killed whether or not the person was a combatant against islam, or simply a spanish commuter on his way to or from work, or whether a hindu or christian visitor to an ancient and holy indian city, or whether a person studying to be a holy man.
it killed the wedding parties and funerals of its own.
and, islam denied the status of some dignity to those who died, in the manner of their death or in the sanctity of their bodies after death, inflicting the basest of sexual violation upon the living and the most degraded, savage, vicious degradation of their bodies in death. islam littered the subway platforms of spain with a man’s head and part of his attached spinal column, his face turned skyward in shock as the bomb blew him apart. islam littered the streets of israel with the blood, the shredded muscle tissue and viscera of those torn apart by the shock waves of modern explosives, and with buses rent asunder arms and legs and heads hanging akimbo from shredded metal parts, faces sometimes recognizable, or left blackened by the searing heat of their deaths, the particular expression of the explosive as random as the motives that set it off.
islam killed the innocent.
and, to its eternal damnation and to its eternal destruction, islam killed innocence.
intellectually, they have killed forgiveness and forbearance, and intellectually, emotionally and psychologically, they have taught vengeance and retribution.
the jihad is the great weapon of the powerless, an “asymmetrical” weapon to be used by those without power to bring a conflict to those more powerful. it is a symbolic weapon, yet as with all symbol it is subject to the nuance of ethics and morality. and, as with all nuance, as with all that pertains to the intellect and human passion, it can turn on itself. and, in the final analysis, it can be mishandled by its practitioners so as to turn upon the practitioner.
and, it can expose the lie of its practitioners.
islam killed its pretense to a moral and ethical stance in many ways, in many excesses of brutality and bestiality, but no where as it did in the horror of the mumbai attacks. it exposed its calculating ruthless nature in the communications between the operatives and the controllers, when the controllers instructed them to murder innocents simply for the notoriety of the murder. it exposed the heart of the beast when it raped, ravaged, eviscerated and sexually mutilated a jewish rabbi and his pregnant wife, cutting the baby from the tethers and protection of its womb.
truly, what act could have been so foully and ineptly calculated to show the evil of islam, than that act.
what could have been more heinously calculated to show its contempt of the innocent, of innocence, than that act.
islam showed the true dimension of its horror when it showed a young boy, perhaps not even 10 years old, ineptly sawing off the head of a man delirious and bound, as members of the community sat around him, women stolidly in burkha’s, men cheering him on, all accompanied by the sound track of a triumphant islam in full song.
some of you may ask, well, yes, but what of it? so what? what is your point?
islam has killed itself, with its own savagery, with its blood thirst without slake.
my point is that in killing innocence, in making such an eloquent argument that there are no innocents, that no person bears the mantle of innocence, that all who are not muslims are combatants and liable to death in the most debase way, … , islam has rather compelling made the point that we are all exposed to the combat brought to us by islam, that we are all combatants.
that combatants are not entitled to pity, nor exemption from the random fate of the bomber, nor their throats protected from the cold hard zeal of the muslim scimitar.
and, that every person in islam, from man to woman to child may be our executioner.
in short, that there are no innocents in islam.
in short, that there is no innocence in islam.
that all of islam is at war with us, and that all of islam is/are [a] combatant[s.]
islam has sealed its doom. the jihad has pronounced its own death sentence. by giving us the knowledge of its message. in destroying ethical and moral and religious concepts such as innocence, and exemption from battle, islam has destroyed the last great restraints and inhibitions for the west to strike back in the full fury of its retribution and revenge.
islam, in arguing that the west has no moral and ethical right to exist, has rather stripped itself of its own ethical and moral posture as the innocent victim. it has exposed itself as a heinous, vicious, cruel implacable aggressor, and it has lost its moral authority, if it ever had any.
and, more tellingly.--
islam has established without intellectual doubt that there are no innocent muslims, that the myth of the "moderate muslem" is precisely that, and that muslims are no more entitled to exemption or protection from retaliation that any of the other "non-innocent" combatants in the world.
islam has no pretension to "innocence," no more than the victims of islam. there is no innocence. there are no innocent muslims. islam is subject to killing on grounds of political expediency on the same basis as islam kills its victims, and islam cannot ethically and morally claim otherwise.
i contend that we should have destroyed islam as a force of terror when leon klinghoffer, wheel chair bound, went over the side of the achille lauro to drown on october 7, 1985 still alive after being shot in the head and chest by his attackers.
my contentions in this regard are all but dwarfed, however, in the eloquent and irrefutable proof islam itself has lent to this truth. islam does not deserve adherence to this preposterous farce of terror, islam has no moral or ethical right to indulge in murder, and islam shall suffer retribution.
palestinians? no, frauds, the agents of a false creation myth of yassar arafat and the p.l.o.
victims? by what stretch of the rankest moral inversion?
it has been nearly 25 years since leon klinghoffer’s callous execution. and, in those 25 years, islam has utterly and convincingly destroyed any pretext to victimhood, to a moral and ethical stance in its wanton slaughter, indifferent to the moral or ethical stance of its victims. islam has argued that its victims are entitled to no such forbearance, and islam has demonstrated sufficiently often so that even its supporters understand that it is entitled to absolutely no forbearance either, from revenge, retribution and reprisal, no matter how wanton.
man, woman and child. it is all the same to islam. and, now, it shall be all the same to us. we have learned.
russian president dmitry medvedev recently warned iran of the consequences of its continuing pretension to nuclear weapons. even the patrons of “terror” grow weary of its stupidity.
you think the matters unrelated? interesting.
