NOW Do You Believe It?

Toleration is the Virtue of People who Do Not Believe in Anything.
G.K. Chesterton

The defense has begun in the death penalty phase of the trial of Zacharias Moussaoui, the Taliban conspirator who worked with the team of terrorists who bombed the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9/11. We are being asked to show toleration and understanding for Mr. , a comprehension of his life and putative mental illness.

When asked by a lawyer whether he would be prepared to kill Americans, he said: "Anytime, anywhere."

"You are the head of the snake for me. If we want to destroy the Jewish state of Palestine, we have to destroy you first," he went on to say.

Zacharias Moussaoui was born to a 14 year old mother, who was abandoned by his father. She raised him while working as a cleaning lady in Paris, and later in other Muslim ghettos in France. His life experience and attitude towards western culture is not uncommon, as shown by the Parisian riots of last summer.

As the attorneys bob and weave, proffering his upbringing, his alleged mental illness and his desire to become a martyr before the jury as mitigating factors, one fact emerges ever more clearly.

Zacharias Moussaoui believes intently in radical Islam and jihad. His contempt for his lawyers and their stratagems, and his outbursts of indignant rage, demonstrate that his belief in the necessity of the destruction of Western culture is real and sincere.

Why is that so hard for us to comprehend? Our various attitudes are all equally ignorant of Muslim culture and sincerity. We are a young nation, thinking we know best in a conflict that is milleniums old - that of Issac and Ishmael. We are like a toddler standing between two prizefighters in the ring as far as understanding is concerned.

So we say - We shouldn't give in to him. Since he wants to be a martyr, we should keep him in jail at taxpayer expense for the rest of his life. Or, he was driven to his terrible acts by poverty and rage. We should reach out to the little ones in the Middle East, and educate them and teach them tolerance and brotherhood, possibly by expanding Head Start. Or, the anti-Semitism expressed by some alleged terrorists is just a negotiating ploy to gain a real homeland for the Palestinians. The suicide bombers are desperate patriots, and we should tolerate their views.

How disrespectful. How condescending. How destructive. How foolish.

The religious zeal of Moussaoui is real, sincere and deadly. If we fail to execute him, it will be perceived as a signal of our inherent weakness in the Muslim world, much as the disputed election of 2000 and its ugly and disrespectful sloganeering was, and will ultimately cause the death and destruction of millions. We may have had a Reformation or Enlightenment in western culture, but Islam is a different path. It is worth noting one of the first acts was to blow up ancient Hindu statues of Buddha in Afghanistan, as they were graven images and an affront to Allah. The combined appeals of the world for tolerance, understanding of another faith, and respect for artistic heritage all fell on deaf ears.

There is no God but Allah. There is no solution but jihad. There is no tolerance of infidels.

Now, we must decide if we value our own culture enough to defend it.

Muslims respect a strong man. Now is the time for our justice system to flex its muscles!

Excellent article! I wish that I had found time this week to write something along these same lines.

In just a minute, I'll post a link (and excerpt) to this piece over at Northern Virginiastan and Infidel Bloggers Alliance, and at my own site as well.

If we execute him, or anybody else for that matter, we remain equally as barbaric as these radical Muslims who would kill us. IT's time to join the rest of the civilized world and banning capitol punishment rather than wallowing with the most extreme.

Capital punishment is not barabaric. Furthermore, there is a world of difference between a trial in open court and bunch of savages sawing off heads or flying airplanes into buildings.

"The rest of the civilized world" is not so very civilized.

Yes, but there's much more to it than that. See point (20) below on 'Jahiliya':

Twenty facts about Islam every infidel should know.

Islam ...

1) Is a mind-control and information-control cult founded by a murderer, torturer, brigand, rapist and pedophile called Mohammed.

2) Is Mohammed's personality cult. Has no foundations other than Mo's murderous rantings (Koran and Hadith). The Koran consists of two conflicting parts - Meccan and Medinan (peaceful and violent resepectively). The Medinan stuff supersedes ('abrogates') the Meccan stuff. Muslims act Medinan, but quote Meccan verses to the gullible infidels.

3) Claims to worship the same God as Christians and Jews, but in fact worships Allah - a demonic manifestation of Mohammed's pyschopathic ego. The Death Cult incorporates pagan practices such as moon and meteorite-worship and cut-throat blood sacrifice of animals and non-believers.

4) Has no rational, philosophical nor theological basis, and the whole belief system is contradicted by science, philosophy, commonsense and human decency.

5) Cannot withstand rational criticism. Can only spread and maintain itself by ignorance, illiteracy, war, terrorism, and intimidation. Islam has bloody borders and cannot co-exist peacefully with other belief systems. Winston Churchill said that Islam in a man is as dangerous as rabies in a dog.

6) Has a superstitious dread of images of pigs, crosses, Buddhas and of course Motoons.

7) Regards Islamic women as semihuman. Wife-beating, incest and child abuse (including mufa’khathat or 'thighing' - the ritual abuse of infants) are encouraged.

8) Regards all unbelievers (Kaffirs, Kuffar, Kufrs, Kafirs) as ritually unclean subhumans to be killed, subjugated, enslaved, exploited or parasitised. Kafirs are described by the Arabic word 'najis' - literally 'filth'. That's why Muslim hatred of Kafirs is intrinsic to their 'religion'. A Kafir doesn't need to DO anything to offend a Muslim, his very existence is enough of an affront.

9) The ethical system applies only to Muslims. Allah encourages rape, pillage and enslavement of non-Muslims. Morality does not extend beyond the global gang (ummah). Muslim ethics are the ethics of the Mafia.

10) The cultists are motivated by hatred, greed and lust. There is no love, mercy or compassion.

11) The only religion NOT founded on The Golden Rule. Morality is based on Mohammed's example. If Mohammed did it then it's OK for all Muslims. Hence the encouragement of rape, pillage, subjugation and murder of non-believers and the institutionalised pedophilia prevalent thoughout Muslim society (justified by Mohammed's activities with Ayesha, his child sex-slave).

12) All human relations are defined by Dominance/Subjugation. Muslims have schizoid inferiority/superiority complexes. (A well-balanced Muslim is one with a chip on both shoulders). They respect strength but despise compromise as weakness. Appeasement invites more aggression. The only political system which has been strong enough to subjugate Islam is Stalinism.

13) Polygamy ensures alpha-males get extra women, leading to a shortage of women for the betas. Beta-males must either jerk off (a sin leading to hell), or form dog-packs and rape or capture kafir women as booty in a razzia, or else self-destruct then they can screw 72 mythical virgins in Allah's bordello in the sky.

14) Lying and deception of infidels (taqiyya) is OK. This may take many forms, including outright lies, feigned moderation, and condemnation of terrorist attacks to the Kaffir while rejoicing with fellow Muslims. Individuals may appear law-abiding and reasonable, but they are part of a totalitarian movement, and as such, must be considered potential killers who can flip in an instant ('Sudden Jihad Syndrome').

15) Muslims are forbidden to befriend Kaffirs except for purposes of deceit or where conversion may be possible.

16) The Koran is Allah's final word and cannot be changed or challenged. To do so is punishable by death. Consequently, the Death Cult can never change or be reformed. The instructions to murder and rape infidels are just as valid now as the day they were written.

17) Treaties and agreements with Kaffirs are made to be broken (Hudna).

18) The world is divided between Dar al-Islam and Dar al Harb (domain of war, the Kufr lands). Muslims living in Dar al Harb must work to disrupt their host nations until these can be brought into Dar al Islam.

19) Muslims have no obligation to their host nations and in fact are encouraged to parasitise them. Welfare fraud, identity theft, forgery etc are endemic in Western Muslim populations, and serious crime against Kaffirs is regarded as normal and justified.

20) The attack on the host nation isn't just against its religion and economy, but is aimed at its very cultural identity. Islam is a complete system, including a culture, which Muslims regard as superior (despite all evidence to the contrary) to other cultures. Muslims are therefore required to destroy the symbols of 'Jahiliya' - non-Muslim culture. In the East this has included destruction of Hindu temples and Christian churches and replacement with mosques, and destruction of Buddhist statues and universities and replacement with heaps of rubble. This process of cultural replacement is now beginning in the West

Let's try that again....

Religion of Pieces has posted an excellent list of 20 points. Are our Western leaders paying attention to those points or determined to remain in denial?

Hey bud,

I agree with you in that Moussaoui is a religious fanatical nutcase. I agree that we need to prevent people like him from ever attacking this great nation again.

However, I do not understand how the war in Iraq (or anything the Bush administration has done) will solve this problem in the long term. What the war has done, and even conservatives agree, is create a greater hatred for America in this fanatical region. It has, for all intensive purposes, created more terrorists.

I can go further, but I just popped on to say that thanks for renting out my blog! Hopefully we can continue this relationship - I like debating with intelligent people who I disagree with. (that was a compliment ;) )

Good luck with the site.
