There’s a holy war against our values. Det er hellig krig mod vores værdier

Hello Skinlovers!

I was reading the Danish newspapers (yes I can read thank you!) and I came upon this article.
And I thought to myself, this is what happens when idiots try to blow up a newspaper (the aftermath of the failed terror attack on Jyllands Posten yes the self-same newspaper that brought you the Mohammed cartoons). Of course the name of the reporter suggests that he is you know what but that doesn’t mean a thing…

Unbelievable, instead of leaving well enough alone some idiots decided they want to bomb the newspaper, thus giving Jyllands-Posten a chance to attack Islam again and this time rightly so.
They wrote a piece and I will try and give you a translation.

The headline:
There’s a Holy War against our values.

Deliver us from the claim that Terrorism has nothing to do with Islam.

So far the catastrophe has been averted due to the diligence of the secret service investigations. But one day it will go horribly wrong. Islamic terror plans against the West has become an everyday occurrence. The terror threat against Jyllands Posten in Copenhagen adds itself to a string of several others over the last five years.

And it has become so mainstream that it is given the same importance as snow in Boernholm or the prime minister’s new years speech.

Islam has a responsibility

Yes yes it is true we have to continue to live our lives without being scared, or else the terrorists would have won. But it is not prohibited to think over what it is that is targeting us.

How has it come to pass, that a highly civilised and extremely peaceful society now risks  a massacre upon innocents in a publishing house?

IN the politically correct circle they maintain that this type of behaviour has nothing to do with Islam, okay yes, so when a Catholic priest molests a young kid the church has a huge problem. But when Moslems want to slaughter people in Islam’s name then it has nothing to do with Islam.

It is not unexplainable

The PC camp would rather see terrorism as a sudden and unexplainable violence. And if pressed for an explanation they will say that we are to blame, we do not treat the Moslems well enough, and that is why some of them become so desperate that they will want to mow people down with a machine gun.

These are weak pathetic excuses. If you want to understand Islamic terrorism’s headway, you just have to look and see what has happened in the Moslem world.

Islam is not only a religious belief. Islam has from the beginning also been political. Even the most superficial reading of the Quran will show that Islam wants power.

Terrorism driven Quran

It has varied though in practice how much political influence Islam has had in actuality in Moslem countries in the past.
But from the 1970’s the Islamic movement gained ground and support with its call to strengthening the faith both inside the Moslem world and its attitude towards the west.

Terrorists take this call to the outer extreme, they draw upon the words “shall fight the fight for God’s cause, to kill and be killed”.

But terrorism cannot be understood without looking at the bigger Islamic awakening, which has given it a spiritual inspiration, supported by the belief that Islam shall now show its strength.

We must subsume

The terrorist threats against Denmark are foremost about the Mohammed cartoons. But these drawings would have never figured so prominently and been such a hit with the terrorist if it wasn’t for their leaders setting them up and giving them importance in a power play of Islam against the West.

The goal of these Moslem leaders is that we non-Moslems should subsume and subscribe to their (the Moslems) version of freedom of speech. We must not draw Mohammed so the terrorists go all the way and want to kill those who do it.

Terrorism should be fought by any means possible. The non-violent Islamic ambition should be tempered with a more active defence of our norms and values. On the other hand we should respect that Moslems have the right of worship as a personal faith.

We should be aware that Islam is many things. But spare me the allegation that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam . It is a holy war against our values.

Fri os for påstanden om, at terrorismen intet har med islam at gøre.

Foreløbig er katastrofen blevet undgået i kraft af dygtigt efterretningsarbejde. Men en dag går det vel galt.Islamiske terrorplaner mod vestlige lande er nærmest blevet hverdagskost. Det uhyggeligt overhængende angreb på Jyllands-Posten i København føjer sig til en stribe andre anslag alene i Danmark inden for de seneste fem år.

Alligevel glider terroren efterhånden bare ind i nyhedsstrømmen på linje med sneen på Bornholm og statsministerens nytårstale.

Islam har et ansvar

Jo, jo, det er fuldkommen rigtigt, at vi skal fortsætte vores liv uden at lade os skræmme, for ellers vinder terroristerne. Men det er jo ikke forbudt at tænke over, hvad det er, der rammer os.

Hvordan går det til, at et højt civiliseret og ekstremt fredeligt samfund nu risikerer massakrer på sagesløse mennesker i et bladhus?

I politisk korrekte kredse er man ivrig efter at slå fast, at den slags intet har med islam at gøre. Javel, ja. Når katolske præster forgriber sig på små drenge, har den katolske kirke et stort problem. Når muslimer vil slagte folk i islams navn, har det intet med islam at gøre.

Det er ikke uforklarligt

De politisk korrekte vil helst se terroren som tilfældig og uforklarlig vold. Hvis de overhovedet skal give en forklaring, bliver det, at det er vores egen skyld. Vi behandler ikke muslimer godt nok, og derfor bliver nogle af dem desværre så desperate, at de vil pløje folk ned med et maskingevær.

Det er syge søforklaringer. Skal man forstå den islamiske terrorismes fremmarch, må man se på, hvad der er sket i den muslimske verden.

Islam er ikke bare en religiøs tro. Islam har fra starten også været politisk. Selv den mest overfladiske læsning af Koranen viser, at den oprindelige islam vil have magt.

Terrorister drevet af Koranen

I praksis har det dog varieret meget, hvor stor politisk indflydelse islam har haft i muslimske lande. Men fra 1970’erne fik islamistiske bevægelser voksende opbakning med paroler om at styrke islams magt – ikke bare indadtil, men også over for Vesten.

Terroristerne fører denne tendens ud i det helt ekstreme. De overtager bogstaveligt Koranens krigeriske formaninger om, at muslimer ”skal kæmpe for Guds sag, dræbe og selv blive dræbt”.

Men terrorismen kan ikke forstås uden at se på den bredere islamistiske vækkelse, som har givet den åndelig inspiration. Båret af tanken om, at islam nu må vise sin magt.

Vi skal indordne os

Terrortruslen mod Danmark drejer sig først og fremmest om Muhammed-tegningerne. Men disse tegninger ville aldrig være blevet det store hit blandt terrorister, hvis der ikke havde været mange muslimske ledere, som havde sat dem i centrum for et magtopgør mellem islam og Vesten.

Målet for disse muslimske ledere er, at vi ikke-muslimer skal indordne os under de islamiske regler for ytringsfrihed. Vi må for eksempel ikke tegne Muhammed. Terroristerne går så hele vejen og vil dræbe dem, der gør det.

Terrorismen skal bekæmpes med alle midler. Den ikke-voldelige islamismes ambitioner om magt skal bekæmpes med et mere aktivt forsvar for vores frihedsværdier. Derimod skal vi naturligvis respektere, at muslimer dyrker islam som en personlig tro.

Vi skal have blik for, at islam er forskellige ting. Men fri os for påstanden om, at terrorismen intet har med islam at gøre. Den er hellig krig mod vores værdier.
