Reader comment on item: Accepting Europe's Anti-Immigration Parties

Submitted by Robert Blumenblatt (United States), Dec 1, 2017 at 09:12

Dear Daniel Pipes,

Another particularly clear and deep analysis by you
of the Revolution that's taking place between the West
of Judeo-Christian USA & Europe, and the Muslim Near East, Middle Easy, & East Asia.
I agree with you here 99% - only because 100% would imply Non-Existent Perfection.

I can only add more, to elaborate on your precise and accurate positions.

As you may have heard, our President Trump just a day ago
tweeted references to Britain First's Jayda Fransen
who, under British law has been convicted of hate speech.
The apparently related videos show her passionately debating
several Muslim women, whose hair is covered as expected.
One of the women had apparently her children with her.
The debate took place in the street,
and one of the women had to retain the mother
who was quite agitated.
In my judgment, such a conviction
would not take place in the USA,
because we do not convict on hate speech, but on hate violence;
that is why the hating and hateful Nazis are tolerated in our country.

Half-playfully, I recommend that we propose an exchange:
why not invite Jayda Fransen to the USA,
and send our American Linda Sansour to Britain?

The part I did not elaborate here until now
is the role of the alternative Social Media,
as opposed to the Liberal Media which President Donald Trump
enjoys categorizing as disseminating "FAKE NEWS."

Now President Donald Trump is not the smooth Harvard-educated President Barack Obama.
But as you recognize so well (as I recollect), the Liberal Media does tend strongly
to marginalize the anti-immigration emerging voices
which are depicted as the extreme Ri
We see this in our country in the case of the Alt Right (Alternative Right).
The situation here in the USA
is precisely as you describe in the case of Europe
- the fringe American NAZIS and White Supremacists love the Alt Right;
but that should not necessarily lead to the discredit of Bannon and his Beirbart media.

In the case of the Brit woman above,
TWITTER finds itself in an odd predicament !.
Deleting President Trump's Tweets as Hateful Speech
would amount to censorship of transatlantic discourse.
The only hope the current British government has
is to seek a retraction by The Donald.
But The Donald is no Diplomat,
and obviously sees himself as championed the Civilized West
to Defend is Judeo-Christian Boarders
against Colonization by Muslims,
or by a Civilian Invasion of Populations
brainwashed at childhood into Muslim Religious belief
that an infant girl must undergo Genital Mutilation.

Religious Freedom, in my view,
permits Americans to convert to Islam
and to practice Islam
if the so choose.
However, it does not mean we may not discriminate against Muslim Immigrant
from coming legally to the USA.
In my view, Islam is the ONLY major (or minor) religion disturbed by Modernity
that it has invented Suicide-Murder as a means of Combat or Jihad.
I interject the fact that it was the Palestinians who perfected the Suicide Vest.
And of course it was in Israel that the Front against the West commenced.
Now, especially after 9-11 in the USA, and the Arab Spring turning into a Muslim Nightmare,
the Europeans are beginning to Sprout a CRUSADE within their own national borders
against the Muslim onslaught - to stop the Jihad which commenced with the taking of Constantinople in 1453, a date I recall well, though I didn't live through it, except intellectually.
On this score Jayda Fransen carries a simple White Cross
apparently symbolizing her Crusade against the Muslim Hordes already within her borders.
Of course there are Moderate Muslims, and no illegal violence should be committed against them.
But Linda Sansour wears here Muslim Spatte[]sec, Yiddish for rag) on her head,
in defiance of our American Way as exposed by our mythical Superman.
The fact that McCarthy made that word dirty by reinventing it into Un-American,
and created McCarthyism with the aid of his assistant Roy Cohn (or is it Cohen?)
should not deprive us of our battle to preserve our Enlightenment Tolerance;
I imagine that the only exception to Tolerance is the Rule of Intolerance of the Intolerant.
It is Islam these days which is Intolerant; I'm glad you dropped "Islamism" in favor of Islam;
I deduce that this means that you are now not requiring SCREENING,
so that "Good Muslims" will be permitted to immigrate to the West?
But even Good Muslims beget Bad Muslim Children.
This is Not a Racist Remark - because Religion is Learned, not inherited by means of Genes.
And Muslim Children apparently too often revert to a much more violent form of Western Islam.

It seems to me that Europeans (unconsciously) feel so Guilty of their Nazi past,
and Americans feel so guilty about their Slavery, and Racism against
their African-American and Indigenous Americans,
that they confuse the rejection of the Islamization of the West
as itself a form of Intolerance, Hatred, and even Racism.
But as I hope I have succeeded in showing
there is no reason to prohibit this aspect of ISLAMOPHOBIA
because the FEAR of Muslim Suicide Bombings
and Muslim Genital Mutilation
of the Clitoris of infant Girls
(thereby depriving them of Org*sm in adult life)
is a Real Legitimate Fear
even if it results in one unfortunate girl suffering such an ordeal;
it is said, within Jewish religious jurisprudence
that to save one human soul
is to save the Whole World.
Clearly, Islamophobia is justified
because probably Millions of Infant Girls in the West
are undergoing FGM (Female Genital Mutilation).

Here's a suggestion - Any Muslim American immigrant
whose daughter has been subjected to Genital Mutilation
should be subject to Deportation;
of course that could create a terrible conflict for the daughter
in a subsequent time.
But it would be a good way of informing immigrants
that Muslim Genital Mutilation is prohibited by law in the West..
