“Recovered Muslim” explains why we have to stop coddling Muslims

Bosch Fawstin grew up as a Muslim in America.  He’s not a Muslim now, and he gives us a clear and riveting account of what’s wrong with the way so many politicians, experts, and ordinary citizens regard Muslims, Islams, and jihad.  His FrontPage piece was originally published in 2011.  It was hugely popular and it’s being republished today, Memorial Day 2013.

Readers here are well aware that Islam is not a religion of peace, though we’re still constantly being told it is.  Those who say so point to the majority of Muslims who are not violent. Fawstin says these people are not moderate Muslims, they’re just not very Muslim.

Another problem with Muslims who aren’t very Muslim is that they lead some among us to conclude that they must be practicing a more enlightened form of Islam. They’re not. They’re “practicing” life in non-Muslim countries, where they are free to live as they choose. But their “Islam” is not the Islam. There’s no separate ideology apart from Islam that’s being practiced by these Muslims in name only, there’s no such thing as “Western Islam”.

…Objectively good human beings, who identify themselves as Muslim, give Islam a good face, one far better then it deserves. This only gives us a false impression about what it is we’re facing, with just another excuse not to face it. And this leads to our acceptance into our culture of stealth jihadists who have figured out how to say what we want to hear, while they scheme behind the scenes to further Islamize the West.

Fawstin blames George W. Bush for setting up a false idea that set us on the wrong path.

The Muslim world is where the true meaning of Islam can be found in practice. Islam – not any alleged deviant form of it – means misogyny, censorship, anti-Semitism, homophobia, wife-beatings, beheadings, honor killings, pedophilia/“child marriages”, murdering infidels, etc. This is evil, and Islam sanctions every bit of it, but we’ve been told that we must respect “one of the world’s great religions” because it’s a religion. Following 9/11, the only thing George W. Bush knew about Islam was that it was a religion, and that apparently was a good enough reason for him to exonerate it as he did. And his advisor on Islam, David Forte, told Bush exactly what he wanted to hear, that “Nothing this evil could come from religion.” But 9/11 did come from a religion. Whatever else 9/11 was, it was an act of faith.

And Bush saying “Islam is peace” shortly after 9/11 gave the enemy a gift they couldn’t have foreseen. Here was the one man who was charged to defend America from their attack and here he was defending the very ideology that motivated the attackers. Honesty is the best policy in general, and when it comes to war, it’s a moral imperative to find out the truth, to tell the truth and to act on the truth, no matter what sacred cow is killed in the process. And so a big part of why nearly 3,000 victims of jihad on 9/11 haven’t been avenged is because of respect for religion, even for a religion that calls for our destruction.

Muslims who really care about Islam are part of an organized effort to spread Islam, and I sometimes refer to this collective effort by Muslims as “Organized Islam.” No matter the means involved, Muslims working towards a more Islamic world want the same thing the jihadists want. This organized effort includes Mosques, Muslim organizations, Muslim individuals writing books, blog posts, etc. And they all invariably engage in anti-Western, Anti-Israeli propaganda, at the very least.

At the level of the federal government, things have gone from bad to worse under President Obama.  At the same time, it becomes more obvious every day to ordinary people that Islam is our enemy.  Our should-be leaders are blinded by either fear of Muslims or a desperate desire not to be seen as bigoted.

A friend sent me this quote from General George Patton:  “It is not the sharpness of the bayonet, but the gleam in the attacker’s eye, which breaks the enemy line.”  Our enemies have gleaming eyes and they are well on the way to breaking us.  Where are our leaders who can put the gleam into the eyes of the West?

Why are we importing Uzbeks in the first place?

Here is a news account from a supposedly independent news outlet in Uzbekistan (UzNews) that suggests that the government of Uzbekistan (a Muslim government) has ‘set-up’ Uzbeks in the West as terrorists so they might clamp down on their own radical Islamists at home—huh?

Frankly, I don’t know what the reporter is getting at, I just want to know why we are resettling these troublesome people in the first place.   Why is the US State Department and maybe the CIA so hot to help these Uzbeks? We even airlifted some here (some against their will) because we were so eager to get them on our soil.

Fazliddin Kurbanov your friendly Uzbek “refugee” next door!

Just ten days ago we caught one relatively new Uzbek refugee in Idaho with bomb-making equipment.  Then, as UzNews tells us and we reported, another Uzbek threatened to assassinate Obama.  But, we didn’t know about the 2011 threats to Senator Joe Lieberman from an Uzbek in Philly, nor about the Uzbek “refugee” in Norway.

However, I’m wondering why our scribe at UzNews forgot to mention the Uzbek terror suspect arrested in Colorado back in January 2012, here.  The Denver Post intoned at the time in its coverage of the case against Jamshid Muhtorov who was arrested on his way to TURKEY:

It’s a complicated case that raises questions about the fine line between freedom fighter and terrorist.

Here is some of the UzNews story:

Today, Uzbek citizen Fazliddin Kurbanov will face a trial on charges of terrorism in Utah.

At a pre-trial hearing in Idaho Kurbanov pleaded not guilty. Human rights activist Surat Ikramov doubts his commitment to terrorist ideals.

Kurbanov was arrested on 15 May in Boise, Idaho. U.S. authorities have charged him with the illegal possession of an explosive device, conspiracy to support a terrorist organization, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, and the dissemination of information on bomb-making and weapons of mass destruction.

Before this incident, three other Uzbek citizens have been charged by authorities in Western countries with terrorism or attempting to kill high-ranking officials.

This shameful sequence of events started with Ulugbek Kodirov who was in the USA on an expired student visa. He was arrested in Leeds, Alabama, on 13 July 2011, in a sting operation when he attempted to purchase an M15 assault rifle from an FBI agent masquerading as a gun dealer.

He was charged with staying in the USA illegally and the illegal possession of firearms and grenades and repeated threats to kill President Barack Obama.

How many readers here remember this next incident?  The Uzbek threatened to shoot the Jew—Senator Joe Lieberman—in the face.   I had to search around for news about the case, and here is report at American Thinker in which the author says the whole thing was soft-peddled and largely kept out of the mainstream media.

Uznews continues:

The next incident involved Dmitriy Dyatlov who was arrested in Philadelphia in August 2011. He attracted the attention of security services by threatening to kill Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman.

Norway too!

Approximately six months later an Uzbek refugee, former police officer Alisher Abdullayev, was sentenced in Oslo. He and two accomplices were accused of having links to a terrorist organisation and preparing terrorist attacks.

Then here we have a “human rights activist” saying the poor fellows were set up!  I think these “human rights activists” are fronting for something! What?

Well-known Tashkent-based human rights activist Surat Ikramov, the leader of the Initiative Group of Independent Human Rights Activists of Uzbekistan, believes that Kurbanov and Kodirov can only be called terrorists with some difficulty.

Read the whole thing and see if you can make ‘heads or tails’ of it.

And speaking of Norway and its open door policy to Muslim immigration, Daniel Greenfield writing at Frontpage magazine told us on Friday that NORWAY LOSES $713,000 ON EVERY MUSLIM IMMIGRANT IT ALLOWS IN!  I’m guessing their terrorist Uzbek will cost them much more than that in the end.

They are fighting back in Sweden!

The City is ours!  shouted the Swedes!

After five nights of watching rampaging immigrant gangs (largely from Africa and the Middle East) torching cars and destroying property, and the police taking a non-confrontational attitude toward the lawbreakers, the Swedish people are rising up!

There is hope for Western civilization in Europe after all!

Here is the story from the Fria Tider (thanks to reader Paul for making my day!):

Stockholm. Faced by another night of terror at the hands of predominantly immigrant rioters, Swedes grown tired of the police’s inability to put an end to the unrest took to the streets Friday night to defend their neighborhoods.

The vigilantes were described as a motley crew of homeowners and concerned citizens, as well as neo-Nazi activists and football hooligans.

What did police do initially?  They began aggressively rounding up the Swedes!

In the Stockholm suburb of Tumba the police decided to abandon their earlier non-intervention policy as a large group of police officers rounded up and dispersed a group of vigilantes trying to fend off rioters.

The decision to round up vigilantes while, according to Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving, ”doing as little as possible” to stop rioters, met with a wave of protests in various social media and on the Internet. Representatives of some vigilante groups contacted Fria Tider to give their view of last night’s events.

Here is what one of the defenders of Stockholm said:

It makes me sick to see the police clamp down on us Swedes with full force and without warning, using nightsticks and tear gas, while they don’t do a damn thing about the immigrants. We are only trying to help maintain order, while the immigrants set cars and buildings on fire, said a young man who wished to remain anonymous.

After a huge public outcry, the police did let Swedish patrols go after the Muslim immigrants:

Later during the night the police appear to have relaxed their attitude to the presence of vigilante groups in the streets. The police is reported to have stepped aside and watched as a huge crowd of vigilantes chased immigrants through the streets of Tumba, chanting ”the city is ours” and ”we will do what the police can’t do”. Several independent sources testify about vigilantes managing to scare away groups of rioters torching wastepaper baskets.

Be sure to see a ludicrous second story at Fria Tider where owners of burned cars were being ticketed!

For new readers:  We have been writing about the downfall of Sweden since 2007 as the welfare nation opened its doors to Muslims from North and East Africa, and the Middle East.  Here is one post about how “refugees” are dashing to Sweden so they don’t have to work and another where Muslim youths say the Swedes are wimpy.

Our whole Sweden archive is here.

Send this post out far and wide please!   ***Update***  You sure did, this post has been seen by thousands and thousands around the world in the last two days!  But, I have seen no mention of Swedes rising up in the mainstream media, have you?

Update May 30th:  NYT mentions Swedish riots, but no mention of Swedes fighting back (of course).

Update June 6th: Researchers to study root cause of riots, unlikely to mention Islam (here).
