A Vademecum on Islam: Islam As A Vehicle For Arab Supremacism

40

After the sectarian divide between Shia and Sunni, the second major fissure within the Camp of Islam is based on ethnic differences. Here the division is that between the Arabs and the non-Arab Muslims. The latter constitute 80% of the world’s Muslims. Some of them have begun to resent their ill-treatment, and even mass-murder, at the hands of the Arabs. This has happened to the Kurds in Iraq. After more than 182,000 Kurds were killed by Arabs under Saddam Hussein, there was total silence from the other Arabs outside Iraq. Not a syllable of protest. It was the West that clamored for justice. The Iraqi Kanan Makiya was the sole Arab to write about the massacre of the Kurds. The Kurds, who were the most loyal and effective allies of the Americans in Iraq, and have been the most effective fighters against the Islamic State in Syria, now plan to hold a referendum on independence in Iraqi Kurdistan. Autonomy is no longer enough. They should be supported, not least because an independent Kurdistan will appeal to Kurds in Turkey, Syria, and Iran, and weaken all three of those states, none of which is a friend to the West.

In Algeria, the Berbers have suffered, too, from Arab supremacism, but differently from the Kurds. The Arabs have in the past tried to suppress Berber culture and the Berber language, Tamazight, and it was only because of constant  protests, including riots in Tizi-Ouzou, that the Berbers finally managed to have their language officially recognized, and been allowed to preserve their Berber culture. But they know that those rights may be withdrawn, as attempts to “arabize” them, by making them forget their own language and culture remain a permanent threat. It’s worth noting that almost all those leaving Islam in France have been Berbers. It’s Berbers, too, who support such secular groups as ‘Riposte laique” (“The Laic Response”). This may reflect unhappiness with a faith that is now recognized, correctly, as linked to Arab suppression of the Berbers.

In Iran, the national narrative includes the story of how Persian poets, such as Firdausi, who wrote the epic “Shahnameh,” managed through their works to preserve the Persian language and resist the imposition of Arabic and Arab culture. It was not an idle worry. The speakers of Berber became a minority in North Africa as arabization followed islamization, In Egypt, Coptic yielded to Arabic. But not in Iran.

Islam is a natural vehicle for Arab supremacism because those who convert are encouraged to take Arab names (which already convinces some that they are, perhaps always have been, Arabs). The extreme example of this is surely all those Sayeeds in Pakistan who claim descent from the Quraysh, the Tribe of the Prophet himself. It is as if in the middle of the Congo various Congolese took not just Belgian first names but Belgian last names and, speaking French to boot, insisted that they were descended from a long line of Belgians.

Then there is the insistence that the Qur’an must be read by Believers, not only in Arabic, but in the classical Arabic of Muhammad’s day (or so it is claimed). It was not until Ataturk commissioned a Qur’an, and a tafsir (Qur’anic commentary) in Turkish, that the until-then immutable practice was changed. Even today, the Qur’an in any language but Arabic is regarded by Muslims as inferior. Compare this to the Christian missionaries who cheerfully went about their task, translating the Gospel into many different  local tongues, and in many cases – especially in Africa – managed thereby to preserve languages that otherwise had never been written down. They were bringing what they thought was the Word of God, and were happy to do so, when necessary, in whatever local language it would best be understood. In the world of Islam, Arabic has pride of place, and reading the Qur’an should ideally be done in Arabic. Many non-Arabs have to endure memorizing large amounts of the Qur’an in a language they do not understand.

Another aspect of the Arab supremacism fostered by Islam is that the models of behavior,  the men who were contemporaries of Muhammad as well as Muhammad himself, those whose manners and customs constitute the Sunna that provides examples of right living, are all Arabs of the seventh century. The spectacle of many Muslims,  living thousands of miles from Arabia, and nearly 1400 years later than those models, dressing like seventh-century Arabs, depresses but should not surprise.

To sum up: Everything about Islam encourages Believers to think of Arabs as superior to all other Muslims. The message of Islam was given to an Arab, and in his language. Muslims are prostrate in prayer five times a day, turned Arabia-wards, toward Mecca. Muslims are required, if physically and financially able, to make the Hajj to Mecca, in Arabia. Muslims must emulate the customs and dress of seventh-century Arabs. Many non-Arab Muslims have taken Arab names, to give themselves a pseudo-Arab identity. Some non-Arabs do more than take Arab names. but also call themselves “Sayyids,” thus give themselves a false lineage as descendants of the Prophet himself.

Many of those who have grown up within Islam, and left it, have — at least if they are not Arabs themselves – begun to recognize the ways in which Islam is, to repeat the formula above, a vehicle for Arab supremacism. The late Anwar Sheikh, a well-known apostate, who left Pakistan for safe refuge in Wales, titled his main work “Islam: The Arab National Religion.” It’s a book that the Western world  would do well to have translated into all the major languages of Islam — Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, Turkish, Siyasa — and distribute, for free, far and wide.  It is an explosive subject, and potentially the most damaging of the fissures  that exist within the Camp of Islam. For fully 80% of the Muslims are not Arab, and if even half of them can be encouraged to recognize the link between Islam and Arab supremacism, which could lead to questioning the faith, and possibly even promote apostasy (in Christianity, unlike in Islam, all ethnicities are truly equal), this could significantly weaken the Camp of Islam.

In the case of Arab Muslims, the concept of Arabness, ‘Uruba,  is so entangled with Islam that it would be difficult  for all but a handful of Arabs to turn their backs on Islam. It says in the Qur’an that the Muslims are the “best of peoples.” And according to Al-Tabari and many other Arab writers, Arabs are the best of Muslims. Arab identity reinforces Islamic identity. And the reverse is also true: a non-Arab identity, as with the Berbers, Kurds, Iranians, and Turks, can work to undermine an Islamic identity, especially among those who have come to fully understand all the ways that Islam has been, and remains, as should be by now a fixed formula, easy to remember, “ a vehicle for Arab supremacism.”

    Although this article does not identify the author, it does reinforce in me the conclusion that “supremacism” equates to “control” and appears to be the overwhelming problem that our world faces today. The ‘control’ I am referring to is exhibited by those who have reached a pinnacle of leadership that they no longer see the need to do what is best for all the people, but to do all that is necessary to keep the control they have gained from being taken from them. You see this conduct in the leader of North Korea, Iran, the terrorist groups, and even, from my perspective, from the entrenched politicians who now supposedly represent us in our government. Where you have such control, you cannot walk away from it and all of your motivation is to preserve that control. That, to me, is the conclusions we all should reach. In America, we need to limit terms, require all benefits to be shared equally by every citizen, essentially removing from our politicians the ability to create situations of power that emulates into control. When we accept that as the underlying problem, our world will likely become a safer and better place to live in.

    Arab Supremacism is why in far away Indonesia children are given desert Arab name and the ancient and traditional indigenous culture is crushed and withering (for instance the venerable shadow puppet plays). Arab Supremacism destroyed the N. African Christian world, it has crushed Moroccan Berber culture. The list is endless.

    • Yes, many Muslims seem to regard Arabs as a “holy people”, because Muhammad was apparently an Arab.

      Around 850 AD, Al Jahiz wrote about race in Islam and Iraq. Around 1881 in the Sudan the Black Muslims rose up against and defeated the “White Muslims” from the Ottoman Turk empire. In fact, the so called Sudanese Mahdi called then infidels. It was not until the British joined with the Ottomans (amazing how race trumps religion–White infidels and White Muslims join forces against Black Muslims–we will see more of that in Europe) that they were able to get back some territory. Muslims are human beings like everybody else and they are subject to all the frailties and evil of human beings.

      Violence more common’ in Bible than Quran, text analysis reveals

      The Old Testament was found to be more than twice as violent as the Quran

      Samuel Osborne 9 February 2016
      The Independent

      An analysis into whether the Quran is more violent than the Bible found killing and destruction occur more frequently in the Christian texts than the Islamic.

      Investigating whether the Quran really is more violent than its Judeo-Christian counterparts, software engineer Tom Anderson processed the text of the Holy books to find which contained the most violence.

      In a blog post, Mr Anderson explains: “The project was inspired by the ongoing public debate around whether or not terrorism connected with Islamic fundamentalism reflects something inherently and distinctly violent about Islam compared to other major religions.”

      Using text analytics software he had developed, named Odin Text, he analysed both the New International Version of both the Old and New Testaments as well as an English-language version of the Quran from 1957.

      It took just two minutes for his software to read and analyse the three books.

      By categorising words into eight emotions – Joy, Anticipation, Anger, Disgust, Sadness, Surprise, Fear/Anxiety and Trust – the analysis found the Bible scored higher for anger and much lower for trust than the Quran.

      Further analysis found the Old Testament was more violent than the New Testament, and more than twice as violent as the Quran.

      Mr Anderson summarises: “Of the three texts, the content in the Old Testament appears to be the most violent.

      Killing and destruction are referenced slightly more often in the New Testament (2.8%) than in the Quran (2.1%), but the Old Testament clearly leads—more than twice that of the Quran—in mentions of destruction and killing (5.3%).

      However, he adds: “First, I want to make very clear that we have not set out to prove or disprove that Islam is more violent than other religions.

      “Moreover, we realize that the Old and New Testaments and the Quran are neither the only literature in Islam, Christianity and Judaism, nor do they constitute the sum of these religions’ teachings and protocols.

      I must also reemphasize that this analysis is superficial and the findings are by no means intended to be conclusive. Ours is a 30,000-ft, cursory view of three texts: the Quran and the Old and New Testaments, respectively.”””

      • Tm.

        But how do people today, in the now and present, view these holy texts? Do the follow them verbatim?
        Where in the Bible does it say to place cloaks of fire, to strike on the neck, that you may own what the right hand allows? No criticism here, for I do understand that the Bible holds violence, it is for matter of discussion. Recall all that though most holy books attempt to teach us how to live fair, to be just, and kind, merciful, and patient, but what is the reality? Since we are human and by our nature we are flawed, how many of us can approximate that which we should try to be? How many men beat their wives, drink alcohol, are unjust, are without mercy, do not pity the poor?

  • RiverFred

    Muslim Sharia-adherents are directed by their prophet and holy book to oppress/commit jihad against Jews, Christians and all non-Muslims in order to convert the world to Islam for the sake of Allah, thus guaranteeing a place in a paradise and those 72 virgins (Mo’s fantasy.)
    Everywhere they attain power they create misery and everywhere they have yet to attain power they stir up hatred and instability, all started by a hallucinatory, sadistic, pedophile, psychopath, ‘the perfect man. ‘
    Islam is proof of the depth of depravity humans are capable of descending to.

    • Helen4Yemen

      How many of the Jews who fled Spain and went to Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Turkey were converted by force?

  • Islam has ALWAYS been a means of Arab cultural and military subjugation over other peoples and faiths. Jihad is Arabic, the Quran is Arabic, Muhammad, Mecca and Medina are all Arab.

    It’s shocking to imagine how a single people could have ruined and destroyed so many others.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Kurdistan will be no friend to the free world — which doesn’t necessarily include the dying West — because muslums are no friends of freedom and never have been.
    Iraqi Kurdistan is already enforcing islamic blasphemy laws and yes it’s run by Kurdish muslums.

  • Joseph Mack

    It will go much farther than that. With continual advancements in the decoding of DNA, it will soon be able to identify the actual descendants of the ‘Prophet Mohammad,’ of whom there must be many by now as he supposedly fathered hundreds. Then Arabs not of that blood line will no longer be considered ‘True Muslims,’ and they will be the next victims of the ‘Religion of Peace!’ All those Muslims who go forth as ‘refugees’ or anything else, go forth as conquerors, intent on furthering their religion. Now, since ‘clock boys’ father visited the White House at the behest of BHO and blessed our Nations’ capitol to Islam – all Muslims consider the U.S. to be Muslim territory under the ‘temporary’ control of infidels. We have invited the destroyer into our midst and will pay the price.
