The Metaphysics to Our Present Global Anguish, by Alasdair Crooke

Many are rejecting one-world utopian visions, but what will emerge in its stead is not clear. From Alasdair Crooke at strategic-culture.org:

James Jatras, a former US diplomat poses a highly pertinent question in his piece Lenin Updated: Firstly, he says, President Trump meets with President Putin and appears to make some progress in easing bilateral tensions. “Immediately all hell breaks loose: Trump is called a traitor. The ‘sanctions bill from hell’ is introduced in the Senate, and Trump is forced onto the defensive”.

Next, Senator Rand Paul goes to meet with Putin in Moscow, Jatras notes. Paul hands over a letter from the US President proposing moderate steps towards détente. Rand Paul then meets with, and invites Russian Senators to Washington, to continue the dialogue: “Immediately all hell breaks loose. Paul is called a traitor. The state Department ‘finds’ the Russians guilty of using illegal chemical weapons (in UK) … and imposes sanctions. Trump is forced even more on the defensive.”

Clearly, from the very outset, Trump has been “perceived by the globalist neo-liberal order as a mortal danger to the system which has enriched them” Jatras observes. The big question that Jatras poses in the wake of these events, is how could such collective hysteria have blossomed in to such visceral hostility, that parts of the ‘Anglo’ establishment are ready to intensify hostilities toward Russia – even to the point of risking “a catastrophic, uncontainable [nuclear] conflict”. How is it that the élite’s passion ‘to save globalism’ is so completely overwhelming that it demands their risking human extinction? Jatras suggests that we are dealing here with hugely powerful psychic impulses.

Jatras answers by evoking the zeitgeist of Lenin, when, in 1915, he made his infamous turn towards civil war inside Russia. That is, a war versus ‘Russia’ – in and of itself – its history, its culture, its religion, and its intellectual and political legacy. With up to 10 million Russians left dead by his cleansing, Lenin said “I spit on Russia. [The slaughter is but] only one stage we have to pass through, on our way to world revolution [i.e. to his vision of a universal Communism].

Is ISIS Faithful to Islam? by Patrick Buchanan

From Patrick Buchanan at buchanan.org:

“We are not at war with Islam,” said John Kasich after the Brussels massacre, “We’re at war with radical Islam.”

Kasich’s point raises a question: Does the Islamic faith in any way sanction or condone what those suicide bombers did?

For surely the brothers and their accomplice who ignited the bombs in the airport and set off the explosion on the subway did not do so believing they were blasting themselves to hell for all eternity.

One has to assume they hoped to be martyrs to their faith if they slaughtered infidels to terrify and expel such as these from the Islamic world and advance the coming of the caliphate of which the Prophet preached.

And where might they have gotten such ideas?

Kasich’s word, radical, comes from the Latin “radix,” or root.

And if one returns to the roots of Islam, to the Quran, does one find condemnation of what the brothers did — or justification?

Andrew McCarthy was the prosecutor of the “Blind Sheikh” whose terrorist cell tried to bring down a World Trade Center tower in 1993, and plotted bombings in the Holland and Lincoln tunnels.

The U.S. government depicted the sheikh as a wanton killer who distorted the teachings of his faith.

Yet, McCarthy discovered that Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman was no imposter-imam, but “a globally renowned scholar — a doctor of Islamic jurisprudence who graduated from al-Azhar University in Cairo, the seat of Sunni Islamic learning for over a millennium.”

Seeking to expose the sheikh as a fraud who had led his gullible followers into terrorism, against the tenets of their faith, McCarthy discovered that “Abdel Rahman was not lying about Islam.”

“When he said the scriptures command that Muslims strike terror into the hearts of Islam’s enemies, the scriptures backed him up. When he said Allah enjoined all Muslims to wage jihad until Islamic law was established throughout the world, the scriptures backed him up.”

Mohammed, Islamic History, and the Bloody Future of the West, by Alex Charles

From Alex Charles at realfactsmedia.com, h/t Western Rifle Shooters Association:

Can I ask you a question?

Have you ever had that sickening feeling, deep down inside, as if some inner voice was trying to warn you that something is wrong?

It almost feels like the harder you try to push it away the louder it gets, gnawing away at your conscience.

And even if you try to ignore it… you can’t.

Every time there is a new Islamic terror attack and you learn the horrific details, that awkward and nauseating feeling comes back again.

It’s trying to warn you, “Something is very wrong.”

And after every Islamic terror attack, our politicians and media try desperately to assure us of two things:

These “terrorists do not represent Islam” and
We are a multicultural society that welcomes Muslim immigration
And yet, that inner voice deep down inside you remains…

Because your inner voice is correct.

Even still, we all want to believe we can live in a perfect multicultural society where everyone will get along. This is a central aspect in Western democracies throughout the world.

We’ve been told this our entire lives and we all sincerely want it to be true.

But eventually we need to look at the real facts, because things aren’t getting any better… and deep down you know it.

Does Western multiculturalism work with Islam?

Multiculturalism did not work for the Christians in Turkey, the Buddhists in Afghanistan, the Hindus in Pakistan, the Zoroastrians in Iran, or the Christians throughout the Middle East.

In fact, the blood of hundreds of millions of people has been sacrificed on this altar, which is the 1,400 year struggle between Islam and non-Muslims.

But surely, our multicultural model will work out fine for us today, right?

To understand the past, present, and future, we only need to understand Mohammed.
