Hillary Clinton, Boko Haram, & ISIS.

bring-back-our-girls-michelle-obama

Hillary called the Boko Haram kidnapping “abominable – it’s criminal, it’s an act of terrorism and it really merits the fullest response possible, first and foremost from the government of Nigeria.” And earlier, she Tweeted: “Access to education is a basic right & an unconscionable reason to target innocent girls. We must stand up to terrorism. #BringBackOurGirls.” May 9, 2014,

So why didn’t we categorize Boko Haram as a Terrorist organization?  Because that would mean cutting off money to states that protect and harbor Terrorists and because Gilbert Chagoury contributed Millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Exactly how many Millions of dollars is not known specifically but thanks to WikiLeaks we know that it is up to and including $5,000,000.  Now Boko Haram flies the Black Flag of ISIS.  Isn’t it curious that the Terrorist organization that the Obama/Clinton Regime created by making a power vacuum and running guns out of Benghazi and into Syria to fight their proxy war with Assad has now also been joined by Boko Haram in order to make a super-Caliphate?

It’s almost as though Nigeria is using Boko Haram as a KKK like Military in order to oppress Christianity in Africa so that Africans can be Terrorized into agreeing with a singular authority.  Also Boko Haram means (Western Knowledge is Forbidden) and Islam doesn’t believe that women should be educated.

What do Muslim Schools Teach?

There is only one subject of study in Islam, and that is Sharia Law.  “Taliban” literally means “the Students” and Boko Haram means “Western knowledge forbidden”.  Muslims insist that they are the children of Adam, they insist they are a Judeo-Christian Religion, but they have the conceit that they are better than everybody else because they are untainted by original sin.

 

Islam is not a Religion it is an Invasive War Cult.

In this article I intend to prove to the reader that Islam should not be allowed to categorize itself as a religion in the Western World.  Eventually, we will be circulating a petition from Change.org where people can vote that hope.  The evidence that I lay down in this article will be based on recent events, recurring patterns throughout history, philosophical, and rhetorical tautologies and icons within the “Religion” itself.  

TELEOLOGICAL ERROR

When a person sees to people arguing for fighting back and forth, they assume the correctness of their own perspective, from that perspective both parties are acting irrationally and part of the problem, one assumes that both parties are equally responsible for the conflict, this decision making process precludes the origin of the conflict, and ignores the perspective of the person who knows how the conflict started and who is setting things right.  To cause an arbitrary ceasefire in the conflict rewards the malicious party that attacked first and since we know psychopaths can’t reform and they will strike again the person acting as a moral authority and bringing a false peace is now also a potential target of the initial attacker, also having caused a disparate impact in favor of the attacker and rewarding their strategic behavior by making it worthwhile for them.

DEVOLVING RELIGION

The bible is a mythological allegory, a mythological history based on true events but encoded so that other people reading it wouldn’t know how to decipher it correctly and understand it, and in not being able to do that they couldn’t get offended by it and punish the possessors of it.  I am not making this up, one of my pen names is Rabbi Ba’al Shiva, under that alias I deconstruct bible  myths with PaRDeS, Jewish exegesis.  The bible was written by the Jews, not by the Christians, and as such they are more of an authority on the meaning of the scripture, and they do not interpret the scripture literally.

The first scriptures in the bible were written by Persian Jews, trying to break away from the evil religions they saw in Persia, the sacrificing of babies to Moloch as a sacrament and as a post natal form of abortion.  The story of Abraham and Isaac was an allegory showing that the Jewish god no longer approved of human sacrifice, this was a revolution in religion and their would be more to come.  At this time the Jewish people were trying to break away as an identity from the Persian mentality.  This would be a long, concerted, coordinated effort as we will see.

The Practices of war in the bible were necessary not because the Jewish god invented them but because the forces they were fighting used them.  When you are fighting a force of people that is arrogant, superior, and ruthless, and uses technique at its disposal to completely destroy its enemy you have to use tactics that can compete and succeed, still in Jewish law we see as much compassion being used as it is possible to use under the circumstances.  Raping women and taking wives were part of the spoils of war back in those days.  To quote Richard Dawkins:  “I am very conscious that you can’t condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours. Just as we don’t look back at the 18th and 19th centuries and condemn people for racism in the same way as we would condemn a modern person for racism…”

If you examine closely the story of Moses, what you see is a people once again trying to separate their identity from that of the Persian mentality.  Remember the Persian’s were constantly trying to expand their vast empire.  By this time they had expanded their authority yet again into the realm in which the Jews had attained some amount of success Egypt.

p28

The story of the Exodus from Egypt corresponds, interestingly enough, with the creation of the Chassidim and the kosher diet.  The metaphorical wandering for 40 years in the wilderness was a metaphor for purging themselves from the Mizraim, the people that were more interested in the “nations” than in the Jewish identity, to preserve their identity as separate from this once more expanding empire.

It wasn’t bad enough that the Jewish people kept on being conquered by the Persians every time they were conquered by the Persians they were dragged back to Persian and “re-educated” or brainwashed back into the Persian mentality.  After the collapse of the Temple of Solomon, once again the Jews were dragged back to Persia and re-indoctrinated once again.

JESUS EVOLVES JUDAISM

Matthew 10:15 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans…. 

Samaritans say that their worship is the true religion of the ancient Israelites prior to theBabylonian Exile, preserved by those who remained in the Land of Israel, as opposed to Judaism, which they say is a related but altered and amended religion, brought back by those returning from the Babylonian exile.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samaritans

ENTER MOHAMMED THE VIOLENT, ILLITERATE, CHILD RAPIST

In Salman Rushdie’s book, the Satanic verses, he frames Mohammed as a religious zealot who considers himself as carrying on the Guru lineage of Jesus Christ, but as he goes from aghora to aghora debating with the philosophers in the market places he is routinely humiliated and falsified, as he should be.  What Mohammed did is he undid all of the evolution that religion had succeeded in, taking it back to the worst of times, before Jesus, before Moses, and before even Abraham.

Due to the rhetorical tautologies in the Unholy Quran it predisposes itself to the most violent and stupid interpretation.

According to AFP, the ISIS leader told worshippers at the mosque: “I am the wali (leader) who presides over you, though I am not the best of you, so if you see that I am right, assist me.

“If you see that I am wrong, advise me and put me on the right track, and obey me as long as I obey God in you.”

Muslims are the fastest growing population of the stupidest and most violent people on earth.  Their very life style is based on spreading Islam all over the face of the earth and eradicating any person that will not submit to Allah under threat of violence.  They have re-instituted a priest class which has not been seen for thousands of years.  Which is to say, Saudi Arabia, translates fewer books into Arabic than anybody else IN THE WORLD including Greece which translates more books than they do and being in control of much fewere people.  Not only that the majority of Muslims are illiterate which means their priest class tells them what to think, what to feel, and what to do.  In their religion they are allowed to rape women and then stone those women for being prostitutes and women of ill repute especially if those women are foreign.  Although, they have at times raped young Muslim women and them told them they can be stoned to death or martyr themselves by blowing up infidels and thereby have their honor restored.  Some stupid western women say, “but not all Muslims are bad, I have had sex with a Muslim man.”  Well guess what, there is no law in Islam about how many sharmouta (whores) a man can sleep with, but, just see what happens when a Western non-Muslim man has sex with a woman of Muslim descent.

RHETORICAL TAUTOLOGIES IN ISLAM

Islam is a religion that is spread by violence, anybody who will not convert is an infidel and that is punishable by death.

Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing…

but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful.   And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.  But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)” 

Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”.

Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

ISLAM THE WAR CULT

Sharia law is essentially martial law applied to a civilian population, that is why they don’t distinguish between military or civilian targets.  Sharia is also the purest form of Islam.   Islam is in a constant state of Jihad holy war intent on spreading Islam, all Muslims are combatants.  Muslims are taught to always be spreading and furthering Islam’s message by any and all means.  Taqu

iyya is the act of spreading or protecting Islam by lying or concealing the truth.  There is another term, which I can’t remember, that essentially means retreat, but what it actually means is resting to gain strength for more jihad later.  Also, Islam has no problem with genocide and torture.

Since, Islam is against Western society and America it is only fair that Islam not be granted equality to other religions in the west.  Islam is not tolerant of other cultures or religions, they persecute every religion that is not Muslim, Hindus, B’hai, Yazidis, Buddhists, Christians, Jews, all of them, they are even in a state of perpetual civil war with themselves.

Ever since the violent revolution inside Islam orchestrated by Ibn Tumart in which they killed off all of the intelligent people and the artists, Islam has never been the same.  You can read the article I wrote here.  (https://thoughtuncommon.wordpress.com/2014/06/08/islam-will-not-change/)  What is happening now is the re-Conquest of the Muslim world by the stupidest and most violent Muslims.  Muslims are contemptuous of other peoples art, which is forbidden in their world because images of humans or animals or anything but artistically rendered letters is an act of idolatry.  That is why they blew up the Buddhas that were carved out of the mountains.

Taller_Buddha_of_Bamiyan_before_and_after_destruction

Well, I can’t make my position any clearer than that.  Treating another group of people as they treat you is not prejudice, it is justice, turnabout is fair play.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jus_ad_bellum#Just_cause.2F_Right_intention)

Rabbi Ba’al Shiva connects the dots from the Battle of Thermopylae to Gideon.

Is the bible true?  Yes, but not literally.  From my perspective it is a mythological allegory for real historical events.  Not only did the people writing the bible not take it literally, they weren’t the same people.  Some of the Books of the Bible have Persian words, Israel was continually being reconquered by Persia and then re educated and then escaping yet again.  The Bible tells a story of a struggle to once and for all be free of the corrupt relationship with this tyrannical eastern force.  Often times these people had to tell their stories in a concealed metaphorical way so that other parties would not be directly offended, but at the same time the truth of the matter could be ferreted out with study and meditation.

Pardes (Jewish exegesis)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Pardes refers to (types of) approaches to biblical exegesis in rabbinic Judaism (or – simpler – interpretation of text inTorah study). The term, sometimes also spelled PaRDeS, is an acronym formed from the name initials of the following four approaches:

  • Peshat (פְּשָׁט) — “plain” (“simple”) or the direct meaning.[1]
  • Remez (רֶמֶז) — “hints” or the deep (allegoric: hidden or symbolic) meaning beyond just the literal sense.
  • Derash (דְּרַשׁ) — from Hebrew darash: “inquire” (“seek”) — the comparative (midrashic) meaning, as given through similar occurrences.
  • Sod (סוֹד) (pronounced with a long O as in ‘bone’) — “secret” (“mystery”) or the esoteric/mystical meaning, as given through inspiration or revelation.

We know that the Jews Hellenized and absorbed the Greek Culture and philosophy.

Hellenistic Judaism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hellenistic Judaism was a form of Judaism in the ancient world that combined Jewish religious tradition with elements of Greek culture. Until the fall of the Roman Empire and the Muslim conquests of the Eastern Mediterranean, the main centers of Hellenistic Judaism were Alexandria (Egypt) and Antioch (Northern Syria—now Turkey), the two main Greek urban settlements of the Middle East and North Africa area, both founded at the end of the 4th century BCE in the wake of the conquests of Alexander the Great. Hellenistic Judaism also existed in Jerusalem during the Second Temple Period, where there was conflict between Hellenizers and traditionalists (sometimes called Judaizers).

The major literary product of the contact of Second Temple Judaism and Hellenistic culture is the Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible from Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic to Koiné Greek, specifically, Jewish Koiné Greek.

The decline of Hellenistic Judaism started in the 2nd century CE, and its causes are still not fully understood. It may be that it was eventually marginalized by, partially absorbed into or became progressively the Koiné-speaking core of “Early Christianity” centered around Antioch and its “universalist” tradition — see most notably Paul of Tarsus and Judaismand the Abrogation of Old Covenant laws.

I am going to tell you an interesting little story, and point out some similarities that you might not have noticed before.

Battle of Thermopylae

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Battle of Thermopylae (/θərˈmɒpɨl/ thər-mop-i-leeGreekΜάχη τῶν ΘερμοπυλῶνMachē tōn Thermopylōn) was fought between an alliance of Greek city-states, led by King Leonidas of Sparta, and thePersian Empire of Xerxes I over the course of three days, during the second Persian invasion of Greece. It took place simultaneously with the naval battle at Artemisium, in August or September 480 BC, at the narrow coastal pass of Thermopylae (‘The Hot Gates’). The Persian invasion was a delayed response to the defeat of the first Persian invasion of Greece, which had been ended by the Athenian victory at the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC. Xerxes had amassed a huge army and navy, and set out to conquer all of Greece. The Athenian generalThemistocles had proposed that the allied Greeks block the advance of the Persian army at the pass of Thermopylae, and simultaneously block the Persian navy at the Straits of Artemisium.

The Battle of Thermopylae was a real event.  it is taught in Millitary History.

Military history

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Military history is a humanities discipline within the scope of general historical recording of armed conflict in the history of humanity, and its impact on the societies, their cultures, economies and changing intra and international relationships.

Professional historians normally focus on military affairs that had a major impact on the societies involved as well as the aftermath of conflicts, while amateur historians and hobbyists often take a larger interest in the details of battles, equipment and uniforms in use.

The essential subjects of military history study are the causes of war, the social and cultural foundations, military doctrine on each side, the logistics, leadership, technology, strategy, and tactics used, and how these changed over time. On the other hand, Just War Theory explores the moral dimensions of warfare, and to better limit the destructive reality caused by war, seeks to establish a doctrine of military ethics.

Now it appears that the book of Judges was written before the battle of Thermopylae, if sources can be trusted.  So the Question arises was the book of Judges the inspiration for the battle of Thermopylae?

Judges 7:

The Lord said to Gideon, “The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel boast over me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’ Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, ‘Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return home and hurry away from Mount Gilead.’” Then 22,000 of the people returned, and 10,000 remained.

And the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many. Take them down to the water, and I will test them for you there, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall go with you,’ shall go with you, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ shall not go.” So he brought the people down to the water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “Every one who laps the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set by himself. Likewise, every one who kneels down to drink.” And the number of those who lapped, putting their hands to their mouths, was 300 men, but all the rest of the people knelt down to drink water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “With the 300 men who lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hand, and let all the others go every man to his home.”So the people took provisions in their hands, and their trumpets. And he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his tent, but retained the 300 men. And the camp of Midian was below him in the valley.


 

Midian

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Midian (Hebrewמִדְיָן‎), Madyan (Arabicمدين‎), or Madiam (GreekΜαδιάμ, Μαδιανίτης for a Midianite) is a geographical place and a people mentioned in the Bible and in the Qur’anWilliam G. Dever suggests it was located in the “northwest Arabian Peninsula, on the east shore of the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea (the “Hejaz”). “[1]

Hadad the Edomite is specifically stated in 1 Kg 11:17-18 to have passed through Midian and Paran while fleeing from Edomto Egypt. Even so, some scholars have claimed Midian was not a geographical area but a league of tribes.[2]

The Midianites were the descendants of Midian, who was a son of Abraham through his wife Keturah: “. . . again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah. And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.”

What is the significance of the Number 300?  Well, stick with me for a moment and I will try to explain it to you.

Shin (letter)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shin (also spelled Šin (šīn) or Sheen) literally means “teeth”, “press”, and “sharp”; It is the twenty-first letter in manySemitic abjadsincluding Phoenician 𐤔Aramaic/Hebrew ש, and Arabic ش‎ (in abjadi order, 13th in modern order). Its sound value is a voiceless sibilant[ʃ] or [s].

Image

Significance[edit]

In gematria, Shin represents the number 300.

According to Judges 12:6, the tribe of Ephraim could not differentiate between Shin and Samekh; when the Gileadites were at war with the Ephraimites, they would ask suspected Ephraimites to say the word shibolet; an Ephraimite would say sibolet and thus be exposed. From this episode we get the English word Shibboleth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibboleth

shibboleth (/ˈʃɪbəlɛθ/[1] or /ˈʃɪbələθ/[2]) is a word or custom whose variations in pronunciation or style can be used to differentiate members of ingroups from those of outgroups. Within the mindset of the ingroup, a connotation or value judgment of correct/incorrect or superior/inferior can be ascribed to the two variants.

Origin[edit]

The term originates from the Hebrew word shibbólet (שִׁבֹּלֶת), which literally means the part of a plant containing grains, such as an ear of corn or a stalk of grain[3]or, in different contexts, “stream, torrent”.[4][5] The modern usage derives from an account in the Hebrew Bible, in which pronunciation of this word was used to distinguish Ephraimites, whose dialect lacked a /ʃ/ phoneme (as in shoe), from Gileadites whose dialect did include such a phoneme.

Recorded in the Book of Judges, chapter 12, after the inhabitants of Gilead inflicted a military defeat upon the tribe of Ephraim (around 1370–1070 BC), the surviving Ephraimites tried to cross the Jordan River back into their home territory and the Gileadites secured the river’s fords to stop them. In order to identify and kill these refugees, the Gileadites put each refugee to a simple test:

Gilead then cut Ephraim off from the fords of the Jordan, and whenever Ephraimite fugitives said, ‘Let me cross,’ the men of Gilead would ask, ‘Are you an Ephraimite?’ If he said, ‘No,’ they then said, ‘Very well, say “Shibboleth” (שבלת).’ If anyone said, “Sibboleth” (סבלת), because he could not pronounce it, then they would seize him and kill him by the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites fell on this occasion.

Judges 12:5–6, NJB

In Judaism[edit]

Shin also stands for the word Shaddai, a name for God. Because of this, a kohen (priest) forms the letter Shin with his hands as he recites the Priestly Blessing. In the mid 1960s, actor Leonard Nimoy used a single-handed version of this gesture to create the Vulcan hand salute for his character, Mr. Spock, on Star Trek.[2]

 

The Shema Yisrael prayer also commands the Israelites to write God’s commandments on their hearts (Deut. 6:6); the shape of the letter Shin mimics the structure of the human heart: the lower, larger left ventricle (which supplies the full body) and the smaller right ventricle (which supplies the lungs) are positioned like the lines of the letter Shin.

I can’t find a good source on this but Shin also represents fire and spirit.

Islam will not change.

The following is a commentary on exerts from the Biography of Moses Maimonides by Abraham Joshua Heschel

“The Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, and Byzantines who took possession of the land never succeeded in getting the long established inhabitants, the crude Berber people, to mature sufficiently to share in their culture.  Only the militant missionaries of the Koran could accomplish this.  But even though the Berbers adopted a faith in Allah and in his prophet Mohammed, along with Arab mores and manners, they were never fully integrated into Arab cultural circles, nor did they ever fully merge into the vast Arabic world.”

Image

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Abeed (Arabicعبد‎, plural Abeed عبيد or El Abeed العبيد) is a derogatory term in Arabic meaning “slave” and is usually applied as an insult to Black people to invokestereotypes. The name has been explained as an allusion to the submission that Muslims owe to Allah. Meyer dismisses this as “efforts by propagandists [to] explain the term away [that are] at the least, disingenuous”.[1]
 
Notice, that what is being said is that the people don’t recognize Sapiential Authority, the authority of reason, which is why others failed to incorporate them.  The reason that Islam succeeded is because of a willingness to apply physical force, which they respect, which is Coercive Authority.  And at the same time the people that converted them continued to look down on them as inferiors which apparently didn’t bother the Berbers enough to rebel against Muslim authority.  
Image
 
I am going to paraphrase the book a little now to speed things along:
 
Ibn Tumart, a religious fanatic from Morrocco, declares a jihad against the ruling class for being too liberal with the application of Islam blaming the rulers for the imperfections in the understandings of the people who were anthropomorphizing Allah by imagining him as human.  He believed that anybody that conceived of Allah as human deserved expulsion from Islam.  He blamed the rulers for secularization, for the public sale of wine and pigs in the streets where Mohammedans lived, (the same pigs that were recently killed off because of swine flu and come to find out they were eating the garbage that Muslims were too holy to pick up).  He accused the most righteous in Islam of being heretics, he even accused Christians of being polytheists because of the Trinity.  He would empty every bottle of wine and smash EVERY MUSICAL INSTRUMENT that he saw in the streets (because that is what a good Muslim he was).  
He really resonated with the Berbers who felt that “commitment to the cause of Allah was better than any consideration of human life and property.” “the command of the Mahdi is the commandment of Allah.”  They eventually took over Morrocco calling themselves ‘the Confessors of the Unity of Allah”.  They ruthlessly slaughtered anybody that resisted the “true Islamic Religion”. 
Jews were forced to embrace Islam or migrate or accept martyrdom.  Many succumbed to fear and pretended to be Muslims.”

Usage in Herodotus’ histories[edit]  wikipedia

In Book 4, Herodotus mentions for the first time the term earth and water in the answer of king Idanthyrsos of the Scythians to king Darius. In Book 5, it is reported that Darius sent heralds demanding earth and water from king Amyntas I of Macedon. In the 6th book, Darius sent heralds throughout Hellas bidding them demandearth and water for the king. In Book 7, he recounts that when the Persians sent envoys to the Spartans demanding the traditional symbol of surrender, an offering of soil and water, the Spartans threw them into a deep well, suggesting that upon their arrival at the bottom, they could “Dig it out for yourselves.”[1]

Interpretation[edit]

The demand for earth and water symbolized that those surrendering to Persians gave up all their rights over their land and every product of the land. Giving earth and water they recognized the Persian authority over everything; even their lives belonged to the king of Persians. Then negotiations would take place to specify the obligations and the benefits of the liegemen.

The phrase earth and water, even in modern Greek, symbolizes unconditional subordination to a conqueror.

BACK TO MY PARAPHRASING:

At first it was acceptable for Jews to be Pseudo-Muslims because in these countries privacy is highly respected, you can do whatever you want in your home, (with your 6 year old “wife”). But Jews were not allowed to pray in the streets or to even gather without attracting suspicion.  Apostacy is punishable by death in the Muslim community.  


COMMENTARY

Years ago, when Myspace had Groups and a philosophy forum, I wrote my fundamentalist drift theory which showed an emergent property in evangelizing and proselytizing ones beliefs.  I first observed this pattern in the Jehovah’s Witness religion in which I was raised, the bigger the religion got the more dumbed down it got.  As you include people of different ethnicities and cultures you also include their prejudices, sensitivities, and issues.  When you make them all equals and you keep lowering the bar you make desirable virtues, equal to superstitious vices.  What happens is that you have to remove everything that offends anybody.  You end up with a sterile environment in which nothing meaningful can be communicated.  I refer to this as the meritocracy of butthurt.  It creates a disparate impact in favor of the stupidest most easily offended, most violent people.  It is a false forced equality.  Wisdom and Ignorance are not equal are they?  

The thing is that in order to sell your message to boost your number in order to increase and expand your authority you need to make stupid people feel that your belief system has something to do with them, that they have some influence or control over it, that they have a voice.  In a rational relationship between a rational and irrational person, the irrational person benefits more than the rational person, and they for better or worse lead by virtue of being stupider, sensitive to their own issues and judgements, and feelings of correctness.  You have to be able to exert an influence on this element to ameliorate themselves and aspire to something that is indeed better than they are, just as children have to grow up and make themselves suitable for the world and society and not the reverse.  

I witnessed this pattern repeat, on Facebook, and then with the Dawkinites, the followers of Richard Dawkins, and then I noticed again as the same pattern repeated in the United States itself.  The positive freedom, Freedom of Speech slowly turned into Freedom from speech.  Female communication rituals were being forced on society.  

Here is the other thing, Israelites were a nomadic people for a long time, they got persecuted by almost every civilization.  The reason they started loaning money, even though usury is forbidden by Kosher law, is because they weren’t allowed to own land anywhere so that they could put down roots, so in order for them to have some manner of appreciating interest.  Israel needs to stay right where it is or else a greater evil and problem will ensue with history repeating yet again, worse than before.  Muslims need to deal with it.  Not only does Islam want and intend to spread itself all over the earth, since time immemorial they have wanted to completely eradicate the Jews.  Israel is not the cause of the problem.  The intolerance and violent stupidity of Islam is the problem.  There, I said it, I feel better. 

Literacy as a tool of Revolution and Religion

I am a linguistic philosopher and a psycholinguist.  I find the history of language fascinating and the way it predisposes itself to certain emergent properties in the culture.  I am a bit of a linguistic determinist in that I do think the thought tools included in a language keep the people in that culture thinking a certain way, especially if the language is dogmatically kept from evolving.  Very few people have the ability to rise above the linguistic barrier, and see the forms of the good themselves, (plato’s cave) without the help of meditation or hallucinogenic or mind expanding experimentation.  If you don’t give yourself permission, artistic license to coin new phrases or to express yourself poetically in new ways, you will not see or do anything new or unpredictable.

Back in the day, every civilization had a priest class, and only they could read and write, languages were very complicated, 2,000 hieroglyphs in Egyptian and 80,000 Chinese characters.  Only the aristocracy was allowed to read and write and they made the laws, they were the deciders, they did all of the thinking.  I am of a particular school of thought that believes that Abraham and Brahma are one and the same person.  I am not the only person that thinks this, others have come to the same conclusion, furthermore, evidence has been found of a patriarchial ancestor matching the description of Abraham.  (http://www.aish.com/ci/sam/48936742.html)  My personal theory is that Abraham created a mutation and that mutation dealt with reading.  If you observe people that do not have direct blood line with Abraham what you will notice is a marked difficulty and even disinterest in reading, sometimes even having problems like Dyslexia as is the case with Native Americans, what is interesting to note is that Mexicans from Mexico City have less of a problem with reading, and they have Spanish DNA.

If you read the Kabbalistic writings from around 300 years ago in spain you find some very interesting things on how Abraham attracted god’s attention by creating.  In the act of creating artistically he was acting like god the creator and attracted god’s attention and blessing.  There are even meditations on how to psych yourself up before setting hand to paper.

“Heresy arises as a pained outcry to liberate us from this strange, narrow pit, to raise us from the darkness of letters and platitudes to the light of thought and feeling. Such heresy eventually takes its stand in the centre of morality. It has a temporary legitimacy, for it must consume the filthy froth clinging to mindless faith. [………..] On the desolate ruins wrought by heresy, the sublime knowledge of God will build her temple.” 
― Daniel Chanan MattThe Essential Kabbalah: The Heart of Jewish Mysticism

You think about literary revolutions like the Gutenberg press and how it allowed everybody to have their own bible, and then later how the printing presses were used in revolutions in order to print one’s own propaganda, or apologetics, or polemics, in order to influence the minds of others and to express one’s own perspective on reality, what sweeping changes these were.  If you think about ideas moving across continents and through time and which philosophies and concepts they retained and which they discarded that too is interesting.  Which philosophies succeeded and so were kept.  Which one’s were forgotten and so the people perished or dispersed.

Some languages allowed for things to be expressed more quickly yet more informally, causing them to sound banal or crass or low brow.

Hieratic is a cursive writing system, used in the provenance of the pharaohs in Egypt and Nubia, that developed alongside the hieroglyphic system,[1] to which it is intimately related. It was primarily written in ink with a reed brush on papyrus, allowing scribes to write quickly without resorting to the time-consuming hieroglyphs.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hieratic

English, for example, is currently the Lingua franca of science.

lingua franca also called a bridge language, or vehicular language, is a language systematically (as opposed to occasionally, or casually) used to make communication possible between persons not sharing a mother tongue, in particular when it is a third language, distinct from both mother tongues.[1]

 

Etymology[edit]

The term “lingua franca“, Italian for “Frankish language”, is from a particular example, Mediterranean Lingua Franca. Lingua Franca was a mixed languagecomposed mostly (80%) of Italian with a broad vocabulary drawn from Old FrenchGreekArabicPortugueseOccitan and Spanish.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lingua_franca

Not many people know this but the reason that America doesn’t have a national language is because the French, Germans, and British throughout history were constantly warring with one another.  So in order to choose a national language, that would have created a disparate impact in favor of one particular group.  Also our law code is an amalgam of french law and British law, which is why we have redundancies and invasive french terminology.

Ponder the language Aramaic…

Aramaic (Classical SyriacܐܪܡܝܐAramaya) is a family of languages (traditionally referred to as “dialects”) belonging to the Semitic family. More specifically, it is a part of the Northwest Semitic subfamily, which also includes Canaanite languages such as Hebrew and Phoenician. The Aramaic script was widely adopted for other languages and is ancestral to both the Arabic and modern Hebrewalphabets.

During its over 3,000 years of written history,[2] Aramaic has served variously as a language of administration of empires and as a language of divine worship.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aramaic

The language no longer exists today but it was the language of a people that wandered, hunter gatherers, back and forth across a vast territory, exposing themselves to many ideas and philosophies, that was one of the languages that Jesus spoke.  No wonder he could connect with so many people and speaking their language convey something to them, touch them in a way nobody else could.  Make connections that nobody else could.

Similar to the Romani who were named after the Romans, and are also known as the Gypsies, when coming from Egypt.  Think of how much knowledge and wisdom and understanding was lost when the library at Alexandra was burned, the Treasure trove of the Gnostics and all the Mysteries of Hypatia possibly the wisest woman to ever have lived.

Now contemplate what Islam is doing, literally devolving the species.  The fastest growing religion in the world is also the least literate.  Why? They are literally devolving the species in terms of literacy.  They have re instituted the tyrannical priest class, that tells them what to think and what to do.  Saudi Arabia tyrannically controls all of the translating of books into Arabic, they control what people read, they control what people see, and they control what people think.  Not only does the language predispose itself to pretension, and arrogance, it also predisposes itself to vagueries, obfuscation, and manipulation, which is built into the language.  It allows the person speaking it to say one thing and to mean another, or to translate it differently at different times, to different people, depending on their status.  This allows the person with Authority to arbitrarily rank another person, and translate the language in such a way as it puts the person understanding it in a position of power and control.  Observe a few examples:

Islam (n.)Look up Islam at Dictionary.com“religious system revealed by Muhammad,” 1818, from Arabic islam, literally “submission” (to the will of God), from root of aslama “he resigned, he surrendered, he submitted,” causative conjunction of salima “he was safe,” and related to salam “peace.”  http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=Islam

The Religion that is spread at sword tip on threat of death is named after Peace, which also means surrender, submit yourself to God at the tip of my sword.

Harem (pronounced [haˈɾem]Turkish, from Arabicحرم‎ ḥaram “forbidden place; sacrosanct, sanctum”, related to حريم ḥarīm, “a sacred inviolable place; female members of the family” and حرام ḥarām, “forbidden; sacred”) refers to the sphere of women in what is usually a polygynous household and their enclosed quarters which are forbidden to men. The term originated with the Near East. Harems are composed of wives and often sex slaves known as concubines. For the South Asian equivalent, see purdah and zenana.

Here in lies the question, Who is it sacred for?  Who is it forbidden for?  and who is “family”?

A little exert from a blog on how to learn Arabic:

I have been asked several times at my university in Oman to do a brief “cultural introduction” to native speakers of English from North America and Europe who have come to improve their Arabic. I start by mentioning that there is a large difference between learning how to speak a language and learning how to navigate a culture. Then I segue into a discussion of how to dress appropriately. My watchwords are: no knees or elbows on display in public. Usually, at this point, several of the listeners look angry, disbelieving and/or bored, especially the men wearing tight, casual T-shirts and women in spaghetti-strap underwear shirts.

But when I speak with Western students who are studying Arabic, most of them are dressed casually: sloppy flannel shirts, ripped jeans, shorts, bra straps, and sometimes underwear on display.    http://chronicle.com/article/To-Learn-Arabic-You-Have-to/132057/

Old Persian Saying: “It only takes one stray dog to ruin the saffron water for a whole village.”

“Salahuddin mosque are bracing for protests today (Sept 14) as part of “Walk Your Dog in Front of a Mosque Day.”

The event is being organized by supporters of a man who claims Muslim protestors kicked his English mastiff, Cupcake, during an anti-Israel rally last month.

While claiming that they wanted to draw attention to Muslim attitudes toward dogs, the organizers’ Facebook page is replete with hostilities. One man wrote that he would throw protestors into a “lake of fire” and shoot their dogs, and the event has been promoted on a white supremacist website, StormFront.org.”  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/15/islam-on-dogs-can-you-be-_n_1885580.html

According to Islaamic Sharee’ah, it is not permitted to keep a dog except within narrowly-defined limits, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) explained: “Whoever keeps a dog, his good deeds will decrease every day by one qeeraat (a unit of measurement), unless it is a dog for farming or herding.” According to another report: “. . . unless it is a dog for herding sheep, farming or hunting.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2322) 

Dogs are extremely naajis (impure, unclean). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If a dog drinks from the vessel of any one of you, let him wash it seven times” (reported by Muslim, no. 279). According to another report: “. . . and clean it the eighth time with earth.” (Saheeh Muslim, no. 280). 

It is forbidden in Islaam to sell a dog and to receive payment for it, as is reported in Saheeh al-Bukhaari from Abu Mas’oud al-Ansaari: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade (accepting) the price of a dog. (al-Fath, no. 2237) 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us not to resemble dogs by placing our forearms on the ground during sujood (prostration), as in reported in the hadeeth narrated by Anas ibn Maalik, according to which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Do sujood properly; none of you should spread his forearms like a dog does.” (al-Bukhaari, Fath, no. 822). 

Whoever keeps a dog in his house is denied the blessing of the angels’ presence in his house, as the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 3225). https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081223090814AAKGBdK

Muhammad made strange and harsh statements about dogs and these edicts affect dogs in a tragic way. His teachings may have come from cultural bias, Pagan concepts, or his own imagination, but wherever they came from they led to the cruel treatment of dogs.

None of the statements regarding dogs are found in the Quran but they abound in the various collections of traditions (hadith). These traditions are a primary foundation of Islamic theology and are the basis of many Islamic laws. They render dogs as “impure” and worse. Per Muhammad’s orders most dogs were to be killed and all dogs of a specific color (black) had to be killed.

Muhammad claimed to be a prophet of God and as such his word was to be obeyed. With the teeth of Islam biting worldwide it is vital that Muhammad’s teachings be scrutinized to determine if he were a nut or a prophet.  http://www.answering-islam.org/Silas/dogs.htm

Shaytan as a “whisperer”[edit]

In Islamic theology, Shaytan and his minions are “whisperers,” who whisper into the chests of men and women, urging them to commit sin. This is where the desire to sin comes from, according to Islam.

They are from both men and jinn.

The Quran provides a supplication for mankind, aimed at fighting the tempting of Satan and his minions:

Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind,
The King (or Ruler) of Mankind,
The God (or judge) of Mankind,-
From the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his whisper),-
(The same) who whispers into the hearts of Mankind,-
Among Jinn and among men.

—Quran, sura 114 (Al-Nas), ayat 1–6[15]

JEWISH ATTITUDES TOWARDS DOGS

It is important to remember that the Jewish people repeatedly escaped from the Persians and were repeatedly recaptured and re-educated by the Persians.

Image

Jewish people are very good at concealing the fact that dogs are not part of the definition but they are a part of the connotation, this is known and concealed. 

“But he kept telling her, “First let the children be filled. It is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the puppies.” Mark 7:27

Jesus here uses the term “little dogs” to lessen the insult to the gentiles.

DOGS IN THE HINDU RELIGION

Dogs have a major religious significance among the Hindus in Nepal also in India particularly in Mithlanchal, North Bengal and Sikkim. The dogs are worshipped as a part of a five-day Tihar festival that falls roughly in November every year. In Hinduism, it is believed that dogs guard the doors of Heaven and Hell. This is a day when the dog is worshipped by applying tika (the holy vermilion dot), incense sticks and garlanded generally with marigold flower.[1]Sarama, the female dog of the gods, is described as the mother of all dogs.

The dog (Shvan) is also the vahana or mount of the Hindu god BhairavaYudhisthira had approached heaven with his dog,[2] therefore among many Hindus, the common belief exists that caring for dogs can also pave way to heaven. ~WIKIPEDIA

REMEMBER TO THAT THERE WAS A BLACK DOG CULT OF INDIA ABOUT WHICH STILL LITTLE IS KNOWN.

“Anubis (/əˈnbəs/ or /əˈnjbəs/;[2] Ancient GreekἌνουβις) is the Greek name[3] for a jackal-headed godassociated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion. According to the Akkadian transcription in the Amarna letters, Anubis’ name was vocalized in Egyptian as Anapa.[4] The oldest known mention of Anubis is in theOld Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the pharaoh.[5] At this time, Anubis was the most important god of the dead but he was replaced during the Middle Kingdom by Osiris.[6]

He takes names in connection with his funerary role, such as He who is upon his mountain, which underscores his importance as a protector of the deceased and their tombs,” ~wikipedia

^^^DIOGENESE^^^

Origin of the Cynic name[edit] ~WIKIPEDIA

The name Cynic derives from Ancient Greek κυνικός (kynikos), meaning “dog-like”, and κύων (kyôn), meaning “dog” (genitivekynos).[3] One explanation offered in ancient times for why the Cynics were called dogs was because the first Cynic, Antisthenes, taught in the Cynosarges gymnasium at Athens.[4] The word Cynosargesmeans the place of the white dog. It seems certain, however, that the word dog was also thrown at the first Cynics as an insult for their shameless rejection of conventional manners, and their decision to live on the streets. Diogenes, in particular, was referred to as the Dog,[5] a distinction he seems to have revelled in, stating that “other dogs bite their enemies, I bite my friends to save them.”[6] Later Cynics also sought to turn the word to their advantage, as a later commentator explained:

There are four reasons why the Cynics are so named. First because of the indifference of their way of life, for they make a cult of indifference and, like dogs, eat and make love in public, go barefoot, and sleep in tubs and at crossroads. The second reason is that the dog is a shameless animal, and they make a cult of shamelessness, not as being beneath modesty, but as superior to it. The third reason is that the dog is a good guard, and they guard the tenets of their philosophy. The fourth reason is that the dog is a discriminating animal which can distinguish between its friends and enemies. So do they recognize as friends those who are suited to philosophy, and receive them kindly, while those unfitted they drive away, like dogs, by barking at them.[7]

The Myth of the Peaceful Muslim

Image

Some of you know that I study the occult philosophies of various religious traditions, just as I do with people so that I can understand why what happens happens.  I like to be able to predict patterns based on rhetoric, and I am quite good at it.  I spent years studying narrative to create my psycholinguisitic deconstructions so that I can understand the motivations of people that are concealing who and what they are in order to do their wills.  My opinion of Islam is very much the same as that of Ayaan Hirsi Ali when she says, “The Muslim people can be included in the world but the Muslim religion cannot.”  I probably butchered that quote…

Image

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taliban#Etymology

Etymology

The word Taliban is Pashtoطالبان ṭālibān, meaning “students”

We hear so much about peaceful religion and Islam is a religion of peace and they defy you to read the Quran and find something wrong with it, and they are concealing the fact that the Hadith is the correct understanding and application of the Quran and their is also an oral tradition that is not written and is passed through a kind of guru lineage.  Muslims that tell you that Islam is a religion of peace are lying to you.  It is propaganda to make their religion look harmless and enticing, which it is not.

Taqiyya

 

Sharia law is essentially martial law applied to a civilian population, which is why Muslims don’t distinguish between civilian and military targets.  Their civilian population is their military population and our civilian population is their military target.  Not only are they a violent and intolerant people they are literally breeding stupidity.  One of the fastest growing populations in the world is also the most illiterate.  If you talk about the tyranny of the stupid majority these people are literally trying to take over the world by crapping out more babies than anybody else and indoctrinating them into their religion of hatred, and contempt.  Ignoring the fact of Aayans horrible and violent female circumcision, pay attention to the fact that her parents intentionally named her Evil Eye Ali.  What kind of people would do that?

Image

The evil eye is an eyeball hex that is used on foreigners, Muslims are taught to curse people that are not of their faith from a very young age, to constantly antagonize people that are not of their belief system, in spirit if not with physical violence, throwing rocks and what have you.

Saudi Arbia translates fewer books into their language than any other culture in the world and they are in charge of almost all of the books read in the Muslim world, even Greece which is much smaller translates more books into Greek than all of Islam-dom, that number being 300 books per year, this might be an old statistic, and I think I got it from Brigitte Gabriel.  Islam while screaming at the world is deaf when it comes to listening to the world.

Art is more or less forbidden in their culture with the exception of artistically rendering sutras from the quran, because it is too close to Idolatry…

 

TALIBAN BLOWING UP BUDDHAS IN AFGHANISTAN

The Muslim mentality disposes itself to feelings of superiority that are unwarranted.  The Muslim lifestyle is unsustainable if it was left to its own resources, it can only survive based on expanding itself and monopolizing other peoples resources.  In both Egypt and Saudi Arabia, Muslims feel that they are too good to pick up their own filth, because they are all so important.  So in Saudi Arabia they import Somalians to do it for them.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 

 Abeed (Arabicعبد‎, plural Abeed عبيد or El Abeed العبيد) is a derogatory term in Arabic meaning “slave” and is usually applied as an insult to Black people to invokestereotypes. The name has been explained as an allusion to the submission that Muslims owe to Allah. Meyer dismisses this as “efforts by propagandists [to] explain the term away [that are] at the least, disingenuous”.[1]

In Egypt the Muslims used the Swine flu as an excuse for killing all of the pigs that run rampant through the streets, it was a way of forcing their religious sentiments on those around them.  But guess what, people started getting sick because everybody was too holy to dispose of their trash properly, they just throw it in the streets, where it was stacking up and festering, because the pigs that ate the garbage were gone.

I don’t have any sympathy for apologists that try to make Islam seem more reasonable than it is.  Any group of people that doesn’t allow a voice of dissent or a strong internally critical dialogue is corrupt, whether it be Feminism, Atheism, or Islam.  Any group of people that can’t take scrutiny and doesn’t have a sense of humor about themselves is bent on forcing their beliefs down everybody else’s throats and it is potentially dangerous.

WOMEN IN ISLAM

Image

The pedophile prophet Mohammed married Aisha at the age of 6 or 7 and consummated his relationship with her at the tender age of 9.  She was not sexually mature, and was not old enough to have gone through puberty so his motivation could have been nothing but recreational sex.

I am disgusted with American women that know nothing about the philosophy or mentality of Arabs that think they are doing some kind of diplomatic service to the world by having sex with Muslim sympathists.  You haven’t accomplished anything by fornicating with them, they don’t have any rules for men governing having sex with infidel women.  Muslim men are allowed to sleep with all of the American women they want, but just watch what happens when a Persian or Arabic woman is attracted to a black or white American man, from their perspective our women are whores.  Here is an idea, why don’t you stop proving them correct?

Because Sharia is military law, Muslim wives and women are considered property. 

Muslim Mysticism

I love Rumi, and I don’t particularly have a problem with Dervishes.       A careful student of Rumi’s work will realize later in life he flirted with blasphemy and heresy in his poetry, getting as close as possible to crossing the line and expressing a concealed contempt for Orthodox Islam.  Shams was Rumi’s teacher and Rumi used a lot of homo erotic imagery to describe their relationship, a sword dripping with honey and the like.  Shams was obviously a freemason, don’t ask me to prove that, it is something I know, but I can’t prove to non initiates.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shams_Tabrizi#Death

According to contemporary Sufi tradition, Shams Tabrizi mysteriously disappeared: some say he was killed by close disciples of Mowlana Jalaluddin Rumi who were jealous of the close relationship between Rumi and Shams. It is also said that Shams Tabrizi left Konya and died in Khoy where he was buried. Sultan WaladRumi‘s son, in his Walad-Nama mathnawi just mentions that Shams mysteriously disappeared from Konya with no more specific details.

What the above quote doesn’t tell you is that one of Rumi’s own sons probably helped cut off the head of Shams, his fathers best friend.   Sufis are a very small portion of Islam.

Recently, there is a big tumult over the kidnapping of 300 girls in Nigeria.  I haven’t really looked into the whole issue yet but I am a linguistic philosopher and I noticed some interesting things in the name of the group that kidnapped the girls in order to sell them as sex slaves and human property.

The group has officially adopted the name “the Congregation of the People of Tradition for Proselytism and Jihad”,[33]which is an English translation of Arabic[34] Jamā’at ahl as-sunnah li-d-da’wa wa-l-jihād (جماعة أهل السنة للدعوة والجهاد).

In the town of Maiduguri, where the group was formed, the residents dubbed it Boko Haram. The term “Boko Haram” comes from the Hausa word boko figuratively meaning “western education” (often said to be literally “alphabet”, from English “book”, but the Hausa expert Paul Newman says it derives from a Hausa word with meanings such as “fraud” and “inauthenticity”)[35][36] and the Arabic word haram figuratively meaning “sin” (literally, “forbidden”).[37][38][39][40] Loosely translated, the name could mean “western education is sinful”, which might symbolizes its strong opposition to anything Western, which it sees as corrupting Muslims.[41] However, this interpretation of the name is disputed.[42] Locals who speak the Hausa language are also unsure what it actually means.[43]

Harem (pronounced [haˈɾem]Turkish, from Arabicحرم‎ ḥaram “forbidden place; sacrosanct, sanctum”, related to حريم ḥarīm, “a sacred inviolable place; female members of the family” and حرام ḥarām, “forbidden; sacred”) refers to the sphere of women in what is usually a polygynous household and their enclosed quarters which are forbidden to men. The term originated with theNear East. Harems are composed of wives and often sex slaves known as concubines. For the South Asian equivalent, seepurdah and zenana.

You might be disturbed and confused by what is happening in the world but I am not.  Nothing surprising is happening from where I am sitting….
