Continued from Part 1 here:
Russians, Chinese, Anglo-Saxons, Japanese, Hispanics, most sub‒Saharan Africans, Mongolians, Koreans, Scandinavians, Polynesians, you name it (!)… the amount of non-Islamic people dominate the world by leaps and bounds. And so, dear Muslim readers, I am not advocating for your eradication from the world, along with all your Qurans, hijabs, prayer rugs, mosques, burqas, Imams, scholars, madrasas, etc.; everything and anything that has to do with Islam, including you, its people.
HOWEVER, I fear that the way events of the world are steering, with globalization smashing and clashing civilization against civilization, those among Muslim ranks who are reacting to Islam’s grappling with modernity have been so grotesque, inhuman, revolting in manner, that regardless if they are a fraction of a fraction of your creed or not, (“your batch”), that the rest of the world is simply going to eventually deem you are either (a.) insane, incurably murderous fanatics that are too intellectually retarded as to remain in a modernizing world; or (b.) more frightening and logically so, too infected with deadly, zealot maniacs that you still “must all go”; the act’s of having to pick through the fresh, good apples among you being simply, well, “not worth it”, not worth the energy or patience among the rest of us non-Muslims, and too risky for the rest of us to take the time to discern and distinguish between you.
DEAR MUSLIMS, WELCOME TO YOUR “SCARED STRAIGHT” MOMENT!
After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
-Daniel, 7, (KJV)
Non-Muslims outnumber Muslims by (haphazardly configured) 5-to-1. Undoubtedly, if my and many other non-Muslims choose to embark on the path I am foreseeing, evermore fearfully, then “in the night visions” there can be only one possible outcome.
Throw out one “bad apple” and there will spring up more in its place, so goes the logic. The “decent” or sympathetic apples in the batch of the vanquished rotten apple will be offended by the one disposed; for rotten as it may have been, they will still feel a pang of connection, affiliation to it, which will compel the less rotten apples to leap to defend, or avenge, the rotten apple, perceiving it as discarded by “foreigners” who know nothing of “their batch of apples” at all. So more apples turn “rotten”, and are again thrown out, causing now even the “good” and amiable apples to have their fears and suspicions that the foreign (“outsiders”) apples looking among them are intent to eventually abolish their whole batch; that they’re “anti-their batch of apples”, not just simply anti-“rotten apple.”
Therefore paranoia and hatred eventually grips all their batch, rotten, semi-rotten, apathetic, decent, and even good, ripe apples alike. The more paranoid and the more their color changes in fright and disdain, the more those looking at or picking through their batch of apples will grow to see all of them as rotten, or leaning towards becoming rotten. It will just become too risky! Hence the apple pickers and those of “other batches” are left with no choice —ALL OF “THEIR” APPLES MUST GO.
Via using a quirky, delicious, humble little fruit, the apple, I have just laid out the monstrous, step-by-step, supposed psychology so many groups of people have gone through, and do so today, and will continue to go through in order to justify annihilating another race, creed, or class of each other from the Earth; the anatomy of genocide.
A global Pew poll taken in 2006 (The Great Divide: How Muslims and Westerners View Each Other) bore eye-popping and terrifying results on how the world’s Muslims view Western Civilization, their place in it, and vice-versa. Granted it is nearly 10 years old, I doubt the poll, if taken today, would show much improvement.
The poll showed that the great majority of Muslims in Islamic nations, but more chillingly among Western nations, do not believe Muslims carried out the 9/11 attacks, that devout Muslims are grossly in conflict with living among Western civilizations; a gross amount of support suicide bombings among Muslims in Western and especially Islamic nations, a hideous finding of “negative characteristics” Muslims view the West as having, and so on (read the poll linked above, it is strikingly obscene and dark, menacing, and for all intents and purposes, apocalyptic in its eventuality).
The poll shows a religious-based culture that is seemingly incompatible with Western European cultures, but even perhaps far-Eastern, Latin American, Eurasian…every culture and religion from Buddhist to Hindu, Jewish, Christian, Taoism, Wiccan, and even those non-believers in God or agnostic (Atheists and agnostics now comprising roughly a billion of Earth’s population —the worst affront to Islamists!).
None the less, Pew showed a vast swath of Earth’s people seemingly incompatible, be they unable or unwilling to assimilate, melt kindly and amiably into, and adapt to the rest of the world. I was aghast at Pew’s findings (Pew polls not exactly renowned for their bias, sloppy techniques or inaccuracies).
“Yes, Virginia, there are indeed ‘good apples’.”
On August 25th, a small group of Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan gathered to publicly condemn the bloody, unholy antics of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). In Britain, on September 18th, a gathering of Muslims, again a small group compared to the country’s 2.8 million (by the way, it’s time to stop bashing Wikipedia!) publicly pleaded for ISIS not to murder English aid worker Alan Henning, but tragically to no avail.
Muslim leaders frequent cable news and radio talk shows, write columns and protest in hopes of divorcing themselves from the murderous band stretching the globe that has beckoned the world’s attention for over thirteen years (and before that, sporadically, the Iranian revolution and subsequent U.S. hostage crisis being only one of many examples).
Yet, the media by-and-large casts a deaf ear to these Muslims. It is undoubtedly a callous calculation of ratings—for who wants to see positive images of Muslims (…yawn!)? …Or is it a combination of poor ratings with the fact that, well, there just are not that many Muslims wishing to publicly condemn the likes of al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and ISIS?
Nevertheless, the “good apples” are indeed out there, and many more than the media displays (regardless of my more fanatical, latter-day Knights Templar readers who proclaim on Facebook and the like that “the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim”, as if they’ve all ever known a Muslim other than their gas station clerks. …P.S. Ssspts..! you’re NOT helping!) But this feeds into my point: so few are positive images of Muslims in today’s “information age” (or misinformation?) that the “good apples” will eventually be lumped in with the bad, and ALL EVENTUALLY THROWN OUT.
AGAIN: I and Duh Progressive rejects this course of action, as I −we− will never believe all members of one group are all of a predisposition, nature or attitude. I cannot state this more ardently.
To be continued …
