The Myth of Muslim Self-Radicalization
by Jake Neuman (May 2013)
The media is covering up, or at least ignoring, Islam’s direct role in the Boston Massacre by creating the myth of "self-radicalization." This myth revolves around the idea that a Muslim who is peaceful, peace loving and a good citizen magically “self-radicalizes” and becomes a kafir killing machine. Muslims claim (and the media supports the view) that the Quran is a book of pure peace and that Islam is the religion of true peace and that Mohammed, whom Muslims claim was the most exemplary example of mankind ever created by God is, therefore, the prophet of peace.
Were this true, the Brothers Tsarnaev – the Muslims who committed this atrocity – should, after reading the Quran and following perfect example of the Sunna of Mohammed, have been “radicalized” to peace and love towards all men (and even women too). The hard fact that they set out to massacre members of their adopted society must, therefore, have nothing to do with Islam – “the religion of peace”(TM).
Faced with these conflicitng facts the phenomenon of “self-radicalization” becomes a truly magical, supernatural and inexplicable event. Pundits and talking heads shake their sage locks in frank incomprehension and then proceed to speculate as to how these clearly deluded self-radicalizers were “let down” or “excluded” by the society they attacked.
But the question to ask is whether “self-radicalization” actually exists and, even if we allow that it does, whether it is entirely comprehensible if viewed in a different light and from a different perspective. To do so requires the deconstruction of the myth that underpins the myth of “self-radicalization,” the myth that Islam is a religion of peace.
The myth that Islam is a peaceful religion and Muslims are just like any other people is the greatest myth that’s ever been foisted on kafir societies. Yet it is Muslims – and only Muslims inspired by Islamic teachings – who commit senseless massacres of people in such an horrific manner. The following is just a mere fraction of the authoritative teachings of Islam. Teachings not of peace and love but of murder, terror and destruction.
Bukhari: 4852:220: “Allah’s Apostle (Prophet Muhammad) said, “I have been made victorious with terror”
Quran 3:151: “Soon shall We cast terror into the Hearts of the Unbelievers”
Quran 9:111: “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur’an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”
Quran 9:5: “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.”
Reading such verses and believing in them – and the many other similar verses found in the Koran, the supporting “sayings” of the hadith, the evidence of the Sira, all of which the “good (or ‘true believer’) Muslim” must believe to be true (and seek to emulate) – does not amount to “self-radicalization,” the radicalization results precisely from reading and believing the Islamic Trilogy.
Thus, once we bust the myth of “the religion of Peace(TM)” we also bust the myth of self-radicalization. This should not come as a surprise – a myth, more accurately a fantasy built on a myth, is appallingly fragile if confronted by real facts, rather than ideas assumed to be facts.
The media will be talking about the culprits, the Tsarnaev brothers from Chechnya, as “misunderstanding Islam,” or “hijacking Islam” or “self-radicalizers.” Indeed, CNN is already talking about how these Boston Massacre Muslim killers were “self-radicalized”. How they came to the USA and then became unhappy because they had no US friends. One of the brothers, Dzhokhar, stated on facebook: “he did not understand Americans“. And then they became self-radicalized ex nihilo (from nothing) and decided to murder Americans, who had offered them refuge from Russian persecution. (What a puzzling and magical process, no wonder CNN does not “get” it!)
This is the same sort of dribble that the media posted after Faisal Shahzad attempted to blow up a car bomb in Times Square. The politically correct dribble that was put out by the media and political elites that Shahzad had immigrated to the US from Pakistan, failed to realize the American dream, lost his home to bank foreclosure and therefore became a radicalized jihadist.
We are now learning and will be inundated day in and day out with the Brothers’ entire life story. This white washing process has already begun by the New York Times calling them good students and athletes. Just good boys just trying to fit in.
Forget the real victims (those injured and maimed by their bombs) many of whom will be living in constant pain and without limbs. Now is the time of the Brothers Tsarnaev.
They are now folk heroes to the Muslim Ummah on the scale of Osma bin Laden and will be portrayed to us as “victims.” Don’t think otherwise, it’s already started. The questions will be asked – what did we do that caused them to do these acts? Or How did we as a society fail them? There won’t be any discussion whatsoever that the Quran is a manual of war, death and destruction. That is the reality surrounding Islam in our world.
What the media will be hiding is the fact that “self-radicalization” doesn’t happen out of nothing. It happens thanks to Islam. It is the Quran and the rest of the Islamic Trilogy, that form a manual for terrorism that radicalizes Muslims and turns them into killing machines.
Killing the infidels is a divine duty for Muslims, says the Quran (2:217, 9/111). The Brothers Tsarnaev read this and the thousands of teachings from the Quran and Sunna (hadith and Sira) of Allah ordering Muslims to murder, terrorize and slaughter kafirs – and being genuinely good Muslims they went out and killed, murdered, and slaughtered kafirs in order to gain the favor of Allah.
In the Islamic view Tamerlan Tsarnaev – the brother who was killed – is now in Paradise molesting his 72 virgins. His seriously wounded brother Dzhokhar will join him when he dies. The 3 murdered kafirs are in hell and damnation – their great criminal act was to be born kafirs and it was an act of piety for the Brothers Tsarnaev to kill them.
The reality of Islam is that however hard we try and succeed in foiling terrorist plots, they will eventually succeed in causing massacre and mayhem, just because the Quran-inspired radical Muslims see it as a holy duty and they are relentless in perpetrating the same. They have to “get lucky” just once to succeed – as they did in Boston.
The Media are going to inundate us with touching stories of Tsarnev brothers and how it went all wrong, thanks probably to real culprit America.
Let us, however, take a look at the Islamic views of these brothers.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev: “I’m very religious.” Tamerlan says he doesn’t drink or smoke anymore: “God said no alcohol”. He says: “There are no values anymore,” and worries that “people can’t control themselves.”
Boston bombing brother’s YouTube page features videos by Sheikh Feiz Mohammed who left Australia in 2005 to live in his father’s homeland, Lebanon, and leads a youth movement of 4,000. He called on Muslims to kill the enemies of Islam and exhorts his followers to seek the honorable death of the believer, quoting from narrations about the prophet Mohammed: “They fight in the cause, they kill others – the enemies who fight Islam and they themselves are killed as martyrs,” he said. He gives the example of a mujaheddin who fought in Bosnia in the 1990s who spoke of nothing but jihad and was killed on the battlefield. “What a beautiful person to be associated with.. Would you not like to be an associate of this person?”
The Tsarnaev brothers are obviously devout Muslims and they were only following in the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad, obeying exactly the Quran, Allah’s and Mohammed’s teachings to murder the infidels – and of course to abstain from alcohol.
Muslim Platitudes: Muslims Are The “true victims” of the Boston Bombing.
Just as after the 9/11 attacks, we are now being inundated by main stream media elites with phony platitudes from Muslim leaders and organizations claiming revulsion of this massacre and in the next breath warning us all to watch out for an anti-Muslim “backlash.”
CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper says, it’s unfortunate that “Muslims are often instantly considered suspects in such attacks.” [Care to speculate why, Mr Hooper?] “American Muslims, like Americans of all backgrounds, condemn in the strongest possible terms today’s cowardly bomb attack on participants and spectators of the Boston Marathon,” said its national executive director Nihad Awad. “We urge people of all faiths to pray for the victims and their loved ones and for the speedy recovery of those injured. We also call for the swift apprehension and punishment of the perpetrators.”
The Muslim Public Affairs Council also issued a statement condemning the blast. “This is a horrible crime, and we call on all of us as Americans to work together to bring those responsible to justice,” it said. To attack people on what is supposed to be a day of jubilation is “criminal and inexcusable. This is a time for us to show resilience and calmness, as we come together to help the American public recover from this heinous act,” said Salam Al-Marayati, MPAC president. “Terrorism has no faith so it is irrelevant what the culprit… will claim as his affiliation. What is relevant is the crime of terrorism, which we as Muslims have been speaking out against. We have confidence in our country, the United States of America, to maintain its tradition of protecting minorities and all people subjected to hate or persecution.”
No Islamist or other link has yet been confirmed. But Sahar Aziz of the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU) said Muslims should be wary. “Because the stereotype of Muslims as terrorists and disloyal has become entrenched within American culture, there is a strong likelihood that Muslims in America will face a backlash if the suspect… is a Muslim. …Such backlash could take the form of hate crimes, mosque vandalization, evictions off of airplanes, school bullying, and scapegoating in certain media outlets,” she told AFP.
In the midst of all these platitudes of American Muslim leaders and organizations, what Americans should also pay heed to is what Abu Hamza al-Masri, Egyptian born British Cleric, says about us:
“Killing a Kafir who is fighting you is OK. Killing a Kafir for any reason, you can say, it is OK – even if there is no reason for it. You can poison, ambush and kill non-believers. You must have a stand with your heart, with your tongue, with your money, with your hand, with your sword, with your Kalashnikov. Don’t ask, shall I do this, just do it.”
No doubt many would regard al-Masri as a “radical” or even a nut-job; but the question arises: from whence do his ideas come. Al-Masri at any rate is sure his ideas (according to him) come from Islam.
We will be flooded with inter-faith ceremonies with Muslim Imams proclaiming their great sorrow for all the poor murdered and injured kafirs (whom Islam regards as vile sub-humans with absolutely no humanity and who are to be murdered, tortured, terrorized, enslaved, raped and whose souls are condemned to hell and damnation. For 691 morally depraved teachings see http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-23.htm).
There are no kafirs in the Islamic paradise. There is no God for kafirs. Only the murderers of these Boston kafirs are guaranteed accession via Quran 9:111 to the “virgin delights of paradise.”
Of course, not one of the Muslim leaders mentioned above or any Imam will condemn any of those thousands of teachings.
And shame on all those Christian ministers and Rabbis who stand with these Imams and representatives of killers and do not challenge them on what Islam actually says.
What of President Obama whose support of Islam brought the Muslim Brotherhood into the very center of US government, whose policies gutted homeland security, whose Homeland Security allows Saudi students unfettered access to USA, who banned from the FBI and military training manuals all mention of terrorism and Islam. The President stated that “the future does not belong to those who denigrate the prophet Muhammad.” The corollary being that the future only belongs to the Muslims. He is absolutely correct with regard to the murdered Bostonian kafirs. Their future ended at the hands of “prophet Muhammad.” By supporting Allah and his messenger – the mortal enemy of the United States, the President is equally responsible for this massacre.
SILENT MUSLIM MEN ARE EQUALLY GUILTY - THEY ALSO SERVE WHO ONLY STAND AND WATCH
We hear countless times that not all Muslims are terrorists – that only a mere handful are involved in these acts. But all those Muslim men who do not repudiate the thousands of Quranic and Hadith teachings ordering as “divine acts” terrorism and the mass murder of kafirs are accomplices to these heinous acts. All Muslim men have free will to denounce and walk away from Islam, or, if they can’t do that, to unequivocally reject the violent anti-Kafir teachings it contains. All those that accept these teachings are also complicit – if “only” through accepting without challenge this evil preaching.
Quoting again – MPAC head Salam Al-Marayati said: “Terrorism has no faith so it is irrelevant what the culprit.. will claim as his affiliation…“
This is a lie. Islam is terrorism. Terrorism is the very essence of Islam. Terror is central to its ideology.
Quoting Sahar Aziz “Such backlash could take the form of hate crimes, mosque vandalization, evictions off of airplanes, school bullying, and scapegoating in certain media outlets.”
It’s ironically funny that, even after Americans have been killed and maimed, the worst “backlash” (something that has never truly happened) he envisions involves some vandalism and bullying. A real “backlash,” which I pray will never happen, would look like the ongoing Sunni-Shia fratricide that “graces” (e.g.) Pakistan. The further irony is that Islam is the very epitome of hate crimes. The Quran is a book of hate that orders, as divine acts, hate crimes to be committed against kafirs. Allah is a god of pure hate. Muhammad was a psychotic “prophet” whose message was hate. See here and here.
Quoting Salam Al-Marayati again: “We have confidence in our country, the United States of America, to maintain its tradition of protecting minorities and all people subjected to hate or persecution.” Sadly, there was no one to protect the victims of the Boston massacre from the Islamic hate that exploded among them. The US government was not there to protect them. They were left totally defenseless as Muhammad stretched forth his hand from his grave in Mecca to murder and maim. It seems that our focus on protecting minority rights (a good and proper duty for a freedom-loving state) has become excessive to the point where the majority is left unprotected from a vicious and violent minority.
All the Muslim leaders quoted above understand Islam. They are all guilty of being accomplices to this act of mayhem, if only by association. The following is what Freedom of religion means to these leaders. Freedom of religion in Islam is freedom to practice Islam only.
When you drive bank robbers to a bank and they run inside, blow the bank up and kill dozens, you are EQUALLY guilty of those murders, just as if you had gone into the bank and committed these acts yourself. Your hands are drenched in blood of all those murdered or injured in the bank robbery.
All Muslim men who do not repudiate the violent teachings of Islam as well as the violent acts of Muslims were in the “car of Islam” driving the perpetrators to the Boston Massacre. The blood of the 3 who died and the 176 injured is also on their hands.
5 years ago I wrote the following:
By Denying The Existence of Evil You Become An Accomplice To Evil. You Give Evil Legitimacy and Respectability.
By Tolerating Evil You Become An Accomplice To Evil. You Give Evil Legitimacy and Respectability.
You Have A Moral Obligation To Fight Evil.
The President/Congress Have A Moral and Legal Constitutional Duty To Understand The Very Grave Danger Islam Poses To Democracy/ Constitution.
By Denying The Existence of the Evil, that Is Islam – The Blood of The Next 9/11 And All Future Muslim Attacks Will Not Only Be On Their Hands But Also On The Hands of All Muslim Men, The Religious, Media, Intellectual Elites and All Others Supporting Islam.
I am sorry to say that that evil has reared its ugly head once again – in Boston.
The Boston Massacre was the “next 9/11.”
Quran 9:111 is the most evil teaching in history. All those who believe 9:111 become evil. But all Muslims must believe in Quran 9:111 and all the other thousands of teachings of murder, terror, torture, rape, and slavery – otherwise they are no longer “true” Muslims. Therefore all such are evil and all are equally guilty.
Let me be clear, there are exceptions: Muslim women and children for a start – they form the largest groups of Islam’s victims. Then there are those ‘Muslims’ who do not believe these evil teachings – the Koran calls such Muslims “hypocrites” and commands the “true-believers” to fight them.
There is a sect within Islam that does repudiate all the violent teachings, they are the “Ahmadis” or “Ahmediyya Muslims.” They are considered “infidels”, “heretics” and even “apostates” by orthodox Sunni and Shia Muslims. In Pakistan they can’t even legally call themselves “Muslims” at all.
You cannot understand Islam without comprehending Verse 9:111 and the crimes of Muhammad.
Muhammad invented Islam and created his own God – the “Allah” of the Quran (the anti-God) and then pretended to receive divine transmissions from Allah via Angel Gabriel. In order to get men who were willing to fight, conquer and die on his behalf, Muhammad, through his fictional god, guaranteed his male followers eternal sex in Paradise, unlimited sex on earth with sex slaves and 80% of the booty from conquered kafirs. He cleverly concealed his evil ideology by wrapping Islam in a cloak of religious ceremony/practices. This is the true reality of Islam.
ALL MUSLIM MEN WHO DO NOT RENOUNCE THESE TEACHINGS ARE EQUALLY GUILITY AS ARE THOSE WHO SUPPORT ISLAM
The harsh reality in front of us is that unless and until we dis-illusion ourselves of such myths as “self-radicalization” and point the finger at the Islamic teachings (such as verses 9:111, 2:215, 9:5, 9:29) that inspire these ‘radical’ Muslims into perpetrating such senseless mass-murder of innocent infidels, attacks like the 9/11 Massacres and Boston Bombing will continue.
