The West Is Finally Fighting Back against Militant Islam

The Revd Peter Mullen writing in Breitbart. Revd peter has always talked more sense than many (but not all!) an Anglican priest of his generation. Maybe more will reconsider their position in the light of the comments of the Archbishop of Canterbury yesterday. 

General Michael Flynn has been offered the post of national security adviser in Donald Trump’s administration. Flynn is a senior intelligence officer….

 on record as having said, “It’s rational to fear Muslims.” On the BBC’s Today Programme, the presenter Nick Robinson described Flynn’s statement as “controversial.”

So that’s the BBC’s assessment of what counts as controversial!

How so when for decades Muslims have been shooting, bombing, dispossessing and otherwise terrorising people in large numbers on three continents?

But the left wing establishment – that politically correct amalgamation of politicians, senior churchmen and huge sections of the media – insists that we shouldn’t notice the slaughter. As a priest in the Church of England, I wish we would adopt the attitude and policies of some of our best forebears.

In the Burgundian town of Vézelay, on 31 March 1146, St Bernard of Clairvaux delivered his famous oration on responding to the Muslim threat:

“…Will you allow the infidels to contemplate in peace the ravages they have committed on Christian people? …Fly then to arms; let the holy rage animate you in the fight, and let the Christian world resound with these words of the Hebrew prophet: ‘Cursed be he who does not stain his sword with blood!’”

Islam, the famous “religion of peace and love” has got a CV. Here is a summary of its imperialistic incursions and attempted conquests over the last 1300 years: Gentle reader – you will know this – if not you can follow the link yourself.

There is no doubt that militant Islam’s current aggression will have to be firmly suppressed if the character of Europe as we know it is to survive. If the European powers cannot bring themselves to act firmly, then the continent will be dominated by the Islamic ideology within a generation, with the resulting loss of all our freedoms – and of course the loss of countless lives.

The character of Islam has long been understood by some of the finest minds in Europe. One of the most outstanding philosophers of the 20th century, R.G. Collingwood in his The New Leviathan (1942) described Islam as “a barbarism.” And the great poet Samuel Coleridge had this to say in his On the Constitution of Church and State (1830):

“That erection of a temporal monarch under the pretence of a spiritual authority, which was not possible in Christendom but by the extinction or entrancement of the spirit of Christianity, this was effected in full by Mahomet, to the establishment of the most extensive and complete despotism that ever warred against civilisation and the interests of humanity.”

Winston Churchill wrote: And again this extract is famous; its the one Paul Weston was arrested for reading on the steps of Winchester Town Hall.

World War III is not something that belongs to the future: it has been going on for a long time. The strategy of Islam is what it has always been, and that is to defeat, subdue and rule the west. Yes, there is a war on. The trouble is only one side is fighting it. Let us hope that, under the guidance of General Michael Flynn, this policy of appeasement and defeatism is about to change.

  1. I am sorry to say that but we do not know to recognize the difference between good and bad anymore. It is enough to read the texts of Saints from 500 or 1000 years ago to find out their striking determination to fight for the good and against the evil beast of Islam. St. Gregory Palamas (born in 1296) has never hesitated for a second to challenge the Muslim invaders in a discussion in order to convert them to Christianity, often risking his life. He and his contemporaries preferred to be martyred rather than to let pass a single heresy through their mouth and thus gain eternal damnation of their soul. 

    Today we are pitiful. We are so much preoccupied with our lives, comfort, money that we forget the spiritual richness altogether. Our Pope speaks heresies on national television, media are crying for the suffering of the murderers of our civilization, terrorists masked as refugees encounter less problems to make free living on western benefits than local working population when in trouble of disoccupation, sickness, old age or maternity.

    It looks really bad and I would be happy to say that we deserve to survive, but it looks like we gave up long time ago.
