Dateline, France, 2017: In the battle against Islam as a political idea, it is absolutely essential to bring over to our Western intellectual side those people of Muslim heritage who are open and accessible to Western logic and to those Western concepts that can appeal to something in them that has transmuted itself away from the logic of Islam and the culture of an Islamic lifestyle. Though a considerably small minority of them can be reached in such a way, it is better than nothing. One example of this possibility is the French writer of Tunisian origin, Rachid Barnat, a political corruption watchdog who writes to warn the public, including the French Muslims, about the consequences of inaction and of “looking the other way” in the face of the threat from Islamic organizations and their various connections with Islamic terrorism. An intellectual, a journalist and a veterinarian by education, this Tunisian-French citizen of France, Rachid Barnat, offers in his writings some solid insights into the big picture that remains obscured by the Mainstream Media. He is passionate about the Jasmine revolution in Tunisia, which he hoped would turn into a vehicle for the conversion of Muslim Tunisia into Africa’s first “little France” – an example of democracy along the lines of traditional French principles of governance in which political power is conducted in the name of “the freedom of conscience” (which is a thoroughly Western, not to say, Catholic concept). He says that he places high hopes for Tunisia ending up as a democracy. He says “for that, it seems to me that secularism is the best way to achieve this to avoid Tunisia becoming a theocratic regime. Although it is also a problem in the country in which it originated, it remains the only solution to ensure freedom of conscience.” If you can follow his narrative carefully you will find that he is attempting to filter anti-Western Muslims out of the general pool of Muslims in France and Tunisia in order to help bring some Muslims over to Western principles, to strike a divide between the traditional Islamic marriage of politics and religion. He hopes to reduce the mosque down to the level of the church in France (detached places for private, altruistic or petty bourgeois social experiences).
We learn from his article about the age-old Muslim practice of “taqiyya”. Taqiyya is an Islamic juridical term whose shifting meaning describes times when a Muslim is allowed, under Sharia law, to lie. In other words, the religion of Islam provides for deliberate lies to be sanctioned for Muslims “in certain circumstances”. The French politicians allow political Islam to infiltrate France under the cover of lies of the Muslim Brotherhood sponsored by the Gulf Arab oil money that is used to bribe French politicians. The author claims that some peaceful French Muslims (like himself) are made to look like the scapegoats whenever a crisis hits because it is more convenient for the French establishment to blame a population at large rather than its own government policies. He does, however, believe in opposing that silence or the lack of condemnation of terrorism in the name of Islam on the part of the French Muslims. He criticizes the French establishment for its hypocritical policies, implying that criticism of Muslims and of the government need not come just from the right wing in France.
Even though his effort is commendable, it cannot bear easy fruit. Let us look at some examples. In Africa, it is the Christian missionary – above all, the English-speaking evangelical – who in all innocence, with his doctrine that all men are equal before God and that wealth is sinful, plows the soil on which yesterday the Communist envoy and tomorrow the Muslim imam will sow and reap. And from the North and the East of Africa, the missionary of Islam follows up in his tracks with great success, penetrating these days as far as the Zambesi in Nyasaland and South Africa. Where a Christian school stood yesterday, a mosque stands tomorrow. The advantage of Islam is the warlike and masculine spirit of this religion, which in its simplified form is more intelligible to the barbarian types of men residing in jungles, in prisons and in the shady corners of streets than the Christian doctrine of pity, which merely takes away the savage’s respect for the West; and the Christian priest is suspected and targetted in all Third World countries above all because he represents a Western ruling ideal, against which the Islamic propaganda, political rather than dogmatic, directs itself with cool decision (at least since Yasser Arafat’s cousin Hajj Amin al-Husseini founded the World Islamic Congress in 1931).
Islamic propaganda and Islamic activism have long ago began to operate on the basis of exploitation of the core weakness of the West, its very soft underbelly, namely, the decay of the white family, the inevitable outcome of stressful megalopolitan existence, which is spreading, and it is devouring the sustainability of Western nations – thereby opening the doors wide to Third World immigration with its long term prospects. The meaning of man and wife, the will to perpetuity, is being lost in the West. Western peoples now live for themselves alone, not for future generations. The nation as society, once the organic web of families, threatens to dissolve, from the city outwards, into a sum of private human atoms, of which each is intent on extracting from his own and from the lives of others the maximum of amusement – feeding, as this human type goes under, an incredibly wasteful series of unproductive Western industries that impede the development of youths and families.
Why are kids these days much faster at leaving classrooms than they are at entering them? Because there is no love of any kind, certainly not of knowledge, in them. As the great Thomas Carlyle said: “For love is ever the beginning of Knowledge, as fire is of light.” It was love that gave birth to the West. Let us hope that a love for the Western cause among the potential allies, like this Franco-Arab journalist Rachid Barnat, can bolster the thinning Western ranks in the ongoing life-or-death struggle for the survival of a living Western Civilization.
Terrorism in the name of Islam: Muslims in France must rise above their silence
The Muslims of France are themselves victims of Islamic terrorism and its Wahhabi sponsors, friends of the French political leaders of all sides.
By Rachid Barnat
After the odious crime committed against the priest Jacques Hamel who was slaughtered in his own church at Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, voices were raised here and there, joined by French politicians, to ask the French Muslims to abandon their usual and customary silence!
Curious way to discard their responsibility, when French politicians try to drown the fish rather than denounce Wahhabism and those who want to implant it in France, who are none other than their petromonarch friends in the Middle East!
If they have rejected the red hazard of Communism and rejoiced at the fall of the Berlin Wall, they seem to play the green peril of Islamic activism for base electoral reasons that do not measure up to the real danger of Wahhabism … through ignorance or worse, by the way of cynicism.
The real persons responsible for the expansion of Wahhabism in France
It is easier for the French politicians to use populist rhetoric to discharge their responsibility by blaming all French citizens of Muslim faith as if they were responsible for the expansion of Wahhabism and as if they adhered to Islamic activism, which these French politicians – from right to left – allowed over the years to settle in France! French Muslims are the first victims of this cancer of the century.
It would be enough for them to prevent the spread of Wahhabism and to combat the political movements that claim it; and to do this by the legal arms of the republic.
To this end, it is necessary to forbid Islamic political parties, to closely monitor their meetings, which are held in places of worship and centers of “Arab-Muslim culture” where preachers and pseudo imams officiate openly to indoctrinate a disoriented youth … and recruit suicide bombers who take themselves for Jihadists!
They are responsible for the implantation of Wahhabism in France, this doctrine which is the foundation of all neo-Salafism, including that of the Muslim Brothers with whom they are co-operating and fraternizing!
Is it recklessness or raw political calculation? It was these French political leaders who allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to settle in France and infiltrate the workings of society and even of the state as advocated by the Brotherhood’s strategists.
So why push cynicism so far as to create confusion and confuse those believers who have never posed a problem to France with their religion, but allow politicians, funded and supported by their petro-monarch friends in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, to instrumentalize Islamic religion and establish this approach on the French political scene?
Muslims of France taken hostage
Have the Basques been asked to prove their attachment to the republic when the attacks of the Basque separatists terrorized the French? Have the Corsicans been asked to do the same when the Corsican nationalists multiplied the attacks? Have the French Jews been asked to denounce political Zionism which instrumentalises Judaism? So why make an exception for the French Muslims?
Moreover, it is odd that after each Muslim terrorist attack in France, Muslim Brotherhood representatives go up to the TV screens and preoccupy the media with their speeches as if to reassure the French who could suspect them of being the sponsor, by using and abusing the “taqiyya” [an Islamic concept allowing lies to be told by Muslims]. The terrorists behind the latest massacres in France are Tunisians recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood members in Tunisia, and coached by the vile Islamic preachers coming from Arabia. Muslim Brothers in Tunisia acting as political leaders always support and continue to boast to Tunisians the lie of their moderate Islam!
However, following each attack in France, such culpable politicians, headed by President Francois Hollande, are echoing in our ears with catchphrases about France’s war against terrorism!
A strange war, when one pretends not to know the enemy or the doctrine underlying his political action.
By their laxity (or cynicism?) the French political leaders allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to settle in Tunisia and then to make this country the first exporter of terrorists in the world.
When we know that Tunisia is at the gates of Europe – it is not surprising to see Islamic terrorism spreading in France and that the French are no longer safe as they believed at the time of the Taliban and Bin Laden when the focus of terrorism was in distant lands.
However, the French more and more denounce Wahhabism, which invades their daily life, and they now know to blame the neo-Salafists who terrorize them – just as they know that Ibn Saud and their enemy’s brother, the emir of Qatar, support and finance radical Islamic proselytism for this doctrine and for the recruitment of future terrorists.
Realpolitik, laxity or complicity with killers?
So what are politicians waiting for to put an end to the evil that terrorizes them rather than to drape themselves in a quixotic attitude against an enemy whom they do not dare to name?
Recently, Prime Minister Manuel Valls timidly accused the Salafists of culpability but did not utter a word at the UOIF [”Union of Islamic Organisations of France”], this nest of the Muslim Brotherhood in France, with which his government cooperates, and about which everyone knows that it is islamicizing the French society in small steps thanks to their mastery of French culture and law [which they manipulate to benefit political Islam]. As a payoff, the Prime Minister takes us for idiots when he takes up the defense of the Ibn Saoud [Saudi Arabian government] and the Emir of Qatar, asserting that they are also fighting against terrorism.
Is this the realpolitik, when we spare the rich Arab customers who make France the 4th exporter of weapons in the world? Are the victims of Islamic terrorism the price to pay not to denounce those who use it for the cause of radical Islam?
To merely tell the French what they really want to hear and not to a Muslim community, which is itself a victim of Wahhabism that took hostage the Islam of France with the complicity of their political leaders of all levels?
