It takes a nation to protect the nation

In an online discussion of the threat from islam, someone I call friend wrote something we could all benefit from considering. Bosch Fawstin (author, artist, patriot; emphasizes the importance of using precise language:

“I never add anything to the enemy’s lexicon, unless it’s for mockery. There is no such thing as ‘Islamonazism,’ it’s a Western concocted term, made up by those who want to avoid saying Islam, for whatever reason, and thus avoiding the root cause of what we face. Most of those who call themselves Muslims would not be identified as such by Islam. They are Muslims in the way politicians are honest. They ignore Islam the way most other religionists ignore their own religion. In this war, we are facing Islam through its most devout followers, not its deviants. In objective reality, Osama bin Laden is an evil man, but according to Islam, he is a Muslim idealist, modeling himself after Mohammed and following Islam’s orders. He is a Muslim practicing Islam, not an ‘Islamist’ practicing ‘Islamism’, but Islam as such. No one who uses terms other than Islam has ever made a clear distinction between Islam and any other alleged deviant form of it because they cannot. Islam is radical, it is totalitarian, it is political, but adding the word ‘radical’, ‘totalitarian’ & ‘political’ before Islam, gives Islam as such a pass, and why the hell should it ever be given one, after all the horrors in its wake.

Can you imagine hearing someone say ‘Radical Communism’ or ‘Radical Nazism’? I can’t.

And what further grates me is when there are a few Westerners at a panel about the enemy’s ideology, and each has a different way of naming it, with the words, “Well, I call it ’such and such.” Saying anything other than Islam when speaking of the enemy’s ideology gives Islam a legitimacy it has never deserved, and that to me is the danger in this Westernized terminology of all things Islam. Allah’s words in the Koran, “Kill the Infidels wherever you find them,” as well as “strike at their necks” represent normative Islam, not any deviant form of it. If non-terrorist Muslims don’t like being told or reminded about these brutal truths about their religion, too bad, just think of those non-Muslims who perished in Islam’s name, which should set your mind straight on who really should be getting the consideration here. Our protecting Islam from its true meaning, for ourselves and for Muslims, will only put off the inevitable ideological war against Islam that’s coming. Most human beings aren’t killers and can’t be made to become ones, no matter what, and this is the case with most Muslims. So since they haven’t said or done anything against the evil being done in their religion’s name, they are irrelevant. The Nazis called themselves Nazis and followed Nazism and we called them Nazis and defeated Nazism. Today’s enemy calls themselves Muslims and they follow Islam. It’s not our job to come to the semantic rescue of Islam because most ‘Muslims’ are not terrorists. We must stop making a distinction that the enemy does not make, all in the name of a fake respect for Islam. It’s not our job to defend Islam, it’s our job to identify it for what it actually is and act accordingly. Here’s a link to a piece I did on this name game we’re playing in, which is to our detriment, and to the enemies benefit:

They Say, We Say:

I add, using words other than Islam to describe Islam only helps Islam, and so hurts us.

[Re terms such as "Islamism,"] I’d simply refer to the same thing as Jihad, both hard and soft, as does the enemy. I’ve yet to hear the enemy use Western terms to describe themselves or their mission, outside of their hijacking the meaning of ‘peace’ as a means to further their war against us. Adding the term ‘Islamism’ subtracts from that historically consistent terminology.”

So, don’t be shy, use the language of islam. CD

Same with 'moderate' muslims....
I regard 'moderate' muslims as the spear in ancient battles.... those spears were not assault weapons per se.
The first idea was to hit the shield of the enemy - if by sheer luck the enemy soldier was wounded or killed, that was fine too, but indeed the first target was the shield, thus putting a heavy load on the opponent's defense shield, until he:
a) either got too tired
b) threw his shield away

In both case giving the enemy an advantage....

Then a 'personal' approach: I refuse to write islam, quran, mohamed or any word related to islam with a capital first letter....
'out of respect'

One word I obviously and constantly fight against is 'islamophobia'.
It is not a phobia, the knowledge that islam is a danger to modern societies and freedoms.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
