" ... like you, I believe in accurate titles and names, but for a different and deeper reason. Mahometanism is perfect for revealing the truth about its source." Allowing the politically correct neologism "Muslim" to invade our minds we made concessions to Mahometans on the semantic level and thus unwittingly started playing their nefarious game according to their own fraudulent semantic rules which are pre-programmed to finish us off. This is why we should never ever make concessions to Mahometans on anything, least of all on how to call them and their so called "religion" and what to think of both. Our ancestors knew them quite well for 13 centuries and understood how to deal with them. By rejecting just a few decades ago the precious century old experience and vocabulary of our ancestors to please the Mahometans we have been driven into a corner and their demands grow the clearer they can see how weak-willed and foolish we are.

Today they make us use beautiful names to call and describe Mahometanism and forbid us to use bad words to refer to it. Tomorrow they will ask us why we haven't become Mahometans yet if praises of Mahometanism come from us and are such an obvious and self-evident experience in every paper and every speech we read and hear around us ? What will we answer if we don't oppose this nasty erosion of semantics much more effectively than it is being effected by the corrupt political class, media and pop culture on behalf of Mahometans and Mahometanism ?
