“O, you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them is of them. Verily Allah guides not the unjust people.” —Koran 5:51
Is There Such a Thing as Anti-Muslim Bigotry?
USA Today’s Garrett Haake said that anti-Islam protestors were guilty of “anti-Muslim bigotry,” in a recent news video (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2015/10/09/anti-islam-rallies-across-usa-making-muslims-wary/73672674/). This is just another example of how journalists do not accurately report about Islam or the reasons people harbor serious concerns about it. Is it really bigoted to stand against a fascist ideology that was praised and encouraged by Adolf Hitler? People oppose Islam because they abhor the Nazi-style violence that Islam employs to quell criticism of its doctrines. (Read about the criminality promoted by Islam here: https://eaglerising.com/22774/is-islam-a-criminal-enterprise-should-american-mosques-be-shuttered/.)
Judeo-Christians do not characteristically act out against their detractors, while Muslims assassinate the critics of Islam regularly, although their crimes are generally not reported by the Muslim-apologist media. If a phobia is an irrational fear, then the term Islamophobia is a fiction, since fear of violence at the hands of Muslim jihadists is not only rational, but a realistic assessment of risk in a world where jihadist violence is on the rise. (For verification of this statement, read about the recently attempted jihad massacre in Garland, Texas: https://eaglerising.com/18314/a-civics-lesson-for-the-press-the-first-amendment-protects-artists-not-jihadists/.)
The Golden Rule versus Islamic Intolerance
It is debatable whether Islam should be called a religion. In the minds of America’s Founders, a religion was a spiritual philosophy of how to live morally and lovingly, based upon the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would have them treat you—or, as Leviticus 19:18 puts it, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” The religious founding of the American republic is based on the application of this principle of reciprocity across people and peoples. And the Bill of Rights is an elaboration of this religious principle that is a call for tolerance, equal protection, and justice for all.
But devout Muslims live by the xenophobic precept that Muslims should never take non-Muslims as friends in preference to other Muslims, for, if they do, they will “have none of Allah’s protection and will have only themselves as guards” (Koran 3:28). As Muhammad’s companion Abu Ad-Darda once said, “We [Muslims] smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.” Ibn Kathir, the famous Muslim scholar, piggy-backs on this assertion, saying that Muslims “are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly.” Thus, it is not surprising that a Golden Rule in Islam that applies across people of all cultures does not exist. The Muhammadan Rule goes like this: Treat others as Muhammad would treat them. And following Muhammad’s example means application of supremacist Sharia Law.
According to the Sharia, the murder of a Muslim warrants the death penalty, while the murder of a non-Muslim carries no penalty whatsoever. Doctrinaire Muslims are supremacist and intolerant. If there is any bigotry, it is on the part of Muslims who prefer the Sharia to our Constitution of equal protection for all.
When Muslims pray, they make bigoted references to non-Muslims. For example:
1) “[W]e forsake and turn away from the Kafirs [non-Muslims]. . . . Surely the Kafirs [non-Muslims] will receive Your punishment.”
2) “We hope for Your mercy and fear Your punishment, for Your punishment will surely reach the Kafirs [non-Muslims]. . . . O, Allah, punish the Kafirs of the People of the Book [proselytizing Christians] who are preventing others from following Your way.”
3) “Keep us on the right path—the path of those upon whom You have bestowed favors. Not the path of those upon whom Your wrath is brought down [Jews], nor those who go astray [Christians].”

Islamic cultural centers often display US flags, and their spokespersons claim to support the US Constitution, but this is not true of a doctrinaire congregation, since Muslims call themselves “slaves of Allah” and denounce freedom, since freedom allows apostasy without consequences; Muhammad prescribed death for leaving Islam. Devout Muslims who say Islam loves freedom are committing taqiyya, sacred lying to protect Islam.
In Garland, Texas, two devout Muslims attempted to assassinate attendees of an event where participants endeavored to draw Muhammad, which is forbidden under the Sharia. Bosch Fawstin’s winning picture of Muhammad protested, “You can’t draw me!” as the hand drawing him replied, “That’s why I draw you.” (View the winning illustration here: http://teejaw.com/you-cant-draw-me-thats-why-i-draw-you/.) This expression of freedom prompted Muslim assassins to take action.
Patronizing Islam: Media Submission & Nazi Encouragement
Rather than support the American celebrants of freedom from religion, the media demonized them, choosing to submit to the agenda of Islam, of which fascism is the most accurate descriptor, politically speaking. Hitler so admired Islam that he invited Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, to Germany during World War Two, where al-Husseini helped the Nazis recruit Bosnian Muslims for the Waffen-SS. Upon meeting Hitler, the anti-Zionist al-Husseini requested Nazi support in opposing the re-establishment of a Jewish state. (See the Mufti inspecting SS troops here: http://zionism-israel.com/dic/Haj_Amin_El_Husseini.htm.)
It is also interesting to note that, as the Muslim Brotherhood was forming in Egypt, Hitler became an important patron, to the delight of Hassan al-Banna, its founder. In 1937, Hitler granted al-Banna’s jihadist organization financial and military aid.

Fascism & Islam
Hitler’s fascism put the state totally in control of every aspect of life; Islam is also totalitarian, being much more than a simple religious doctrine. In fact, according to quantitative text-analytical studies, carried out by Dr. Bill Warner, 64% of Koranic text obsesses on how to treat non-Muslims! This means 64% of the Koran is political, not religious (http://cspipublishing.com/statistical/pdf/Statistical_Islam.pdf).
The anti-Semitic politics of Islam has much in common with German fascism, which is why many who know the tenets of Islam refer to it as “Islamo-fascism.” Here is an exemplary verse from Koran 5:51: “O, you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors. They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them [for friendship] is of them. Verily Allah guides not the unjust people [who turn away from Islam].”
Hitler & Islam
Although Hitler may have claimed publicly to be a Christian, according to Joseph Goebbels’ diary entry of December 29th, 1939, “The Führer [Hitler] is deeply religious, though completely anti-Christian. He views Christianity as a symptom of decay. Rightly so. It is a branch of the Jewish race.”
Like Hitler’s fascism, the end goal of Islam is xenophobic and genocidal. Islam requires jihad, the struggle to dominate the non-Muslim world through warfare. Jihad means “struggle,” which is the guiding theme of Mein Kampf—“My Struggle”—in which Hitler lays out a genocide-inclusive “jihad” of his own, against the non-Aryan world.
Hitler believed “the world would be Muhammadan” if only the Muslims had prevailed at the Battle of Tours, opining that “ultimately not Arabs, but Islamized Germans, could have stood at the head of this Muhammadan Empire.” According to Albert Speer, Hitler once said, “The Muhammadan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?” Also, according to Speer, “Hitler said that the conquering Arabs . . . could not have kept down the more vigorous natives, so that ultimately not Arabs but Islamized Germans could have stood at the head of this Mohammedan Empire.” Said Hitler, “Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers . . . then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies heroism and which opens up the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world.”
It Is Time to End the Media Support for Islamo-Fascism
The affinity between Nazism and Islamo-fascism is undeniable. Yet, today’s liberal media vilify the advocates of freedom and glorify the proponents of totalitarian Islamo-fascism. Perhaps the time has come for journalists to read the texts of Islam for themselves, instead of trusting the words of Islamo-Nazis and defending them without qualification.
