…and why we still do not…
Issue # 15 of Dabiq magazine printed in 1437 Shawwal (that’s July 2016 for you dumb kuffars) has an article titled: “Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You” written “to clarify to the West in unequivocal terms – yet again – why we hate you and why we fight you.”
You can read the full article here, but here is a quick summary of the points made:
- We hate you because you are disbelievers (not Muslims)
- We hate you because you are secular
- We hate you because you are disbelievers (atheist)
- We hate you for your transgressions against our religion (mocking, blasphemy, insults)
- We hate you for your crimes against Muslims (wars)
- We hate you for invading our lands
The list ends with the following point:
“What’s important to understand here is that although some might argue that your foreign policies are the extent of what drives our hatred, this particular reason for hating you is secondary, hence the reason we addressed it at the end of the above list. The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam. Even if you were to pay jizya and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you. No doubt, we would stop fighting you then as we would stop fighting any disbelievers who enter into a covenant with us, but we would not stop hating you.”
Quite clearly spoken. No ambiguity. It is truly a wonder how so many leftists, politicians and the media cannot get it. Muslims hate us for one reason and one reason only: We are NOT Muslims.
We are not like them and they hate everything that demonstrates that difference. This is a position that cannot be argued with, as short of conversion to Islam, nothing is accepted as an argument. It is not possible to reason with an unreasonable demand. For a true Muslim, there is no reason, no morality, no argument outside of Islam.
It could be argued that this is not the position of Islam, but only of ISIS and its radicals. Many Muslim apologists make just that claim. Fundamentalists in turn call the self titled moderates hypocrites and apostates.
I tend to agree with the radicals in that their interpretation of Islam is the truest to the original intentions of the prophet. The following arguments, therefore, are aimed at them, the author(s) of the article, the true, fundamentalist Muslims.
Why we could hate you
We could hate you just to be equitable. An eye for an eye. The language of hatred, violence, brutality and intolerance is the only language you seem to understand. Maybe, if we hated you back, we could ‘communicate’.
We could hate you for being brutal, primitive savages. What else, indeed, could we do watching the stoning, beheading, mutilating, live burning, children brutalizing videos you put on Youtube? Your savagery is a disgrace to humanity.
We could hate you for being parasites.
You’re the parasites of history and now you are the parasites of the West. There is not a single place or time in history that Islam made better. With brutal savagery, you took over civilizations and slowly turned them into primitive wastelands.
You are no better today. Muslims tend to be a serious financial drain in the countries of Europe.
You demand, but offer nothing of value in return.
We could hate you for your ingratitude and hypocrisy.
Without us, you would be nowhere. You are using Western weapons, move around in Western vehicles. You use mobile phones, the internet and YouTube to spread your messages. Without access to Western technology, without the West buying your resources (which you cannot even get out of the ground without Western technology), entertaining your goats is about the only thing you would be capable of doing.
We could hate you for trying to destroy our civilization.
Not only are you endangering western civilization but the very survival prospects of humanity on the planet. We could hate you for the danger you represent. The middle-East is where the Garden of Eden used to be. When the Jews took it back from Muslims who ruined it, it was a wasteland. Now, that the Jews restored it to its former glory, Muslims want to destroy it again. If Muslims take over the world, they will turn it into a wasteland.
We could hate you for your stupid beliefs.
Islam, by any measure, is the most primitive, violent, intolerant and unforgiving religion in existence today. I challenge anybody to name one that is worse. Although it comes very close, even communism is better. None of that would be a problem, if you would keep your beliefs to yourself, but you don’t.
I could probably name a whole set of other reasons why we could hate you, but they do not matter. What matters, is that despite these very good reasons, we do not hate you. Unlike you, we are not filled with rage and hatred.
Why we don’t hate you
We don’t hate you because we are stronger than you
The power of our culture is the power of its attitudes, the power of its knowledge, skills and achievements. With the exception of primitive brutality, there is not a single field of human endeavors where you can compete with us. Not physical, not mental, not cultural. In a fair competition, Muslims are just not a match. The Jews can wipe the floor with Muslims on any field, at any time.
We don’t hate you because we are better than you
We don’t hate you because our culture is NOT a culture of hate and anger.
Unlike your prophet who was preaching hate, ours, Jesus Christ, was preaching love.
Contrary to your claims, your God is ANYTHING but al-Rahman al-Rahim, all merciful and all forgiving. Of all the Gods I know of, he is the least forgiving, by far the angriest, by far the most intolerant. Just like you.
By contrast, Jesus was preaching love, forgiveness and turning the other cheek. The Martyrs of Christian history died professing their faith, not murdering the innocent hoping to get some pussy in haven as a reward. Many Christian Martyrs died forgiving their murderers.
We don’t hate you, we pity you.
You hate us because deep down you know how worthless your faith and culture makes you. We understand that you are victims of your own stupid, intolerant and bloodthirsty ideology. We understand that your women and children are victims too.
We don’t hate you because you are not worthy.
Hate is a sentiment of weakness and inferiority. People hate those who have power and control over them. Hate is often a sign of an inferiority complex. We don’t hate you because you are not worthy. At best, we have contempt for you.
We don’t hate you because we do not take you seriously.
This is where the West is divided. People like me, take you, and the existential threat you represent, very seriously. Unfortunately, the other half of the Western world believes that you can become like us and start behaving like us. They believe that you can become tolerant, that you can grow out of your primitive culture, that you will learn to appreciate ours. They believe that you can give up the basic tenets of your religion, jihad, sharia and the drive for the caliphate.
They believe that you will want to be part of our culture, that you will WANT to assimilate.
Every new terrorist atrocity gives us a new excuse to hate you, yet with every one of those atrocities we just demonstrate yet again that we do not.
Our mistake is not to take you seriously.
Yours is to think that this is a sign of weakness.
