Islam, Ann Barnhardt, and experiences with Islam.

Over at Eternity Road, there was a recent post, with video, on Ann Barnhardt. Specifically, it addressed her commentary about Islam, and in this particular case, its “sexual identity”. This woman is a dynamo. She is passionate about her faith, her country, her culture, and about those who would seek to diminish or destroy same. I think she could be accurately thought of as a modern-day John Adams, certainly she is a firebrand. If she wore the uniform, I would put here in the same mold as a George S. Patton. Perhaps a more snarky image (but no less accurate) would be, she is Ann Coulter, with a tad less snark, and a lot more testicular fortitude. And though I am not 100% in alignment with all she says, Ann is far more often right, than wrong.

This brings us back to what I consider to be the main thrust of her video.

1. Islam is evil, by definition, and design.
2. All good men, when knowingly faced with evil, and recognizing it as such, must act; or become part of said evil.
3. In the case of Islam, there is no black and white, all who practice it, as in following its tenants and guidelines, are by item 1’s statement above, to some lesser or greater extent, evil. There is no middle ground.

I have no problem with any of the three statements above. (These are, by the way, my interpretation of her views. Go watch the video and see if you reach the same conclusions.) It has been stated here at the Harbor, many times, that Islam, its facilitator, and practitioners, are a cancer. A malignancy advancing on all fronts of the world. We ignore, or appease it, at our cultural and civilizations peril.

The second statement is also true. This is not limited to Islam, but in facing any evil, it applies. Even if you do nothing, are passive, by taking no action against any thing which when exposed by the light of truth, is evil, than you, at the very least, are an enabler of same. What is more, you are perhaps even more vile than those who are active agents of any particular evil, for at least we know where they stand.

The third statement, in and of itself, is true. If you take the time and effort to read the Quran, and Hadith, it is a requirement to adhere, to the letter, to the first, and, at the very least, to your Iman’s interpretation of the second. It is no surprise only three major “branches” of Islam (Sunni, Shiite, and Wahhabi) “exist”, if it were not for the perceived need on all their parts to actively pursue and attack the “infidel”, they would be at odds against each other. Like the fictional Highlander series, in Islam’s case, “There can be only one.”

Any who deviate from, or leave, Islam are considered apostate. And as such are subject to persecution, prosecution, (possible) imprisonment, and finally, death. There is no middle ground on this. Which brings us to my concerns.

Given there are a billion plus Islamists throughout the world, and at present, there seems to be as much unrest and descent in any number of places where Islam exists; where are the factions which would seek to reform Islam, bringing it out of the dark, and into, at the very least, a benign state?

Does such a body of “enlightened souls” exist?

Given the violent reaction of the mainstream (it never was “just the fringe groups” or individuals) toward those who seek to modify or update Islam, is such a thing as a “moderate muslim”, or “Enlightened Islam”, even possible? Or is the legitimate “moderate muslim”, a figment of the media, and governments which have other agendas … agendas which require a blind eye being turned toward the reality of what Islam really is, and intends to do to the civilized world, given the chance.

I believe there are those who would seek to practice a benign form of Islam. But they need to make their choices now. They need to become one voice, and they need to stand well apart from the malignancy they were spawned from. The time is fast approaching where we are all going to have to make a stand. A time when being on the fence, being passive as to what is going on around us, and in the world at large, is no longer a choice, but is in fact, by the very lack of action, “a choice”.

If you profess to be Muslim, but believe this is not the “real road” your faith should travel, yet you sit quietly on the side, while allowing violence, destruction, domination, and death to be done in the name of your “religion”, than you are part of the problem, and not part of the solution. You are enabling evil to not only exist, but to profit.

Either stand up for what you believe in, or be well and truly prepared for what may eventually come to pass … the complete and total eradication of your cult, by those who see no other solution as being possible, in order to save their own.

The “good German” fell when the bombs decimated Berlin, just as quickly as the ardent Nazi. The “good (North) Korean” suffered the same fate, during the Korean War, as did the “good (North) Vietnamese. The same will happen with you, if you do not make a choice, or make an effort.

As much as it would hurt, when the time comes, should I have to be a part of it, I will not shirk from removing the threat of Islam from my shores, my state, my town. It may be nothing more than transporting them to “points of deportation”, and perhaps some sort of screening process, for we are like that here. We have learned from past mistakes (the Asian interment camps of WWII). However, should there be conflict, even on these shores, than all gloves are off. No quarter will be taken, or given.

For you will have been given the opportunity, to speak up, to stand aside from that which is evil, and you will have waited too long. It is a waiting game you can not afford to take part in. Or hope to benefit from. In the case of any and all fence sitters, he who hesitates is not only last, but lost as well.

    Two books on this subject written by a Muslim who is rebellling against fundamentalist Imams:

    “The Trouble With Islam Today”
    “Allah, Liberty, and Love”

    • I have heard of these books and the brave heart who is behind them. Hopefully I will find the time to read them. Thanks for stopping by.

    There is no benign islum. There is no such insect as a moderate muslim.
    There is no such as an apostate. Believe in any of the aforesaid and you are dead.

    • As far as “officially” sanctioned sects of the cult of Islam, you are quite correct. However, there are individuals who have broken from the mainstream and could be considered “moderate” (or even “reformist”) muslims. To be sure, they are to a man, and woman, are in jeopardy of losing their lives, or at the very least being preyed upon by their more “mainstream” brethren. But they do exist. At the end of the day, it may be a moot point, as (to the best of my limited knowledge) none have apreciable following(s), to the end goal of forming a splinter (and much more benign) sect of the cancer known as Islam. Oh, and thanks for dropping by!

      Dear Ann you R a real true American hero with so much courage I heard your video and as an Israeli I know that everything you say about Islam is true, you young, beautiful, and smart,and I love the fact that you are educating and waking up many clueless Americans you making a good point Americans should not be afraid of these people as most of them are a bunch of cowards G-d love you and bless you, and as a conservative Jewish American I thank you with all my heart.

      • Jannette, Miss Barnhardt does not post here. If my writing has lead you to believe otherwise I apologize. She does however, fully understand the threat Islam and it’s followers present not only to the civilized world, but in particular, to Israel. Would that more people in this country would share her point of view on this, we would be much closer to a resolution. And thank you for stopping by!!

    • Jannette Bendavid

      That is so true, If you R a Muslim you can not be moderate just as true that all Muslims Countries have no Democracy.

      • I have written about the fictional “moderate Muslim” in the past, and yes there is at least a handfull of such out there. Sadly, they are far too few in number, their voices are lost in the wilderness. In any case I remain firm in my conviction that Islam is a malignancy which, sooner or later, must be removed from the body of man…or we will parish.
