Opportunistic Infections in Action -
or The West, Obama,
and Islamic Beliefs
Opportunistic infections. If your basement is dry, there won't be mold. Mold comes only if it has the opportunity - in this case, damp and wet.
Cancer - the disease gets treated. An additional vital approach is to lessen opportunities for it to take hold, and also increase the likelihood of getting rid of the disease - through diet, exercise, less stress, etc.
We daily get messages to keep our immune systems healthy, so we have less chance of catching whatever is going around.
My point here: The West is set up for opportunistic infections - like Islam, Cameron, Obama.
Some people are focussing on Islam - a dangerous ideology, in part a religion, in large part a political system. This is a crucial focus: we need to understand Islam, to recognize the dangers, in order to act against it.
Other people (and often the same people) focus on the West, the ways that the West is currently open to dangerous opportunistic infections, which wouldn't have a chance if the West were healthy.
I'm one of the people in both groups, but more in the second.
For instance, my book - Think or Sink: We Think or The West Sinks - is on the dangerous current Western taboo against thinking. In other words, if people had the tools to think, and permission to think - including about Islam - Islam would never have been permitted to come to the West, and we would be taking massive measures against it.
Major restrictions on Muslim immigrants, for instance. Yes, many of them may be nice people. But they also at least name themselves as part of a religion and political ideology that is against democracy, against male female equality, against all other religions including through violent jihad, and in favour of the destruction of all systems except Islam. Those are not people it's safe to have in the West.
More on opportunistic infections, this time from the other side.
Islam - through the Muslim Brotherhood, for instance - is an expert at taking advantage of opportunities. And once Islam has gained a foothold, it's an expert at further weakening the host society, which should be taking measures against a force that endangers it.
Next big point. I believe that, right now, a huge opportunity has presented itself to Islam. ISIS. Millions of refugees, a majority of them Muslim.
A sane response: these are Muslims, and non-ISIS Muslim countries need to take them in. The West will, of course, take in many non-Muslims, as most non-Muslims hold ideologies that are not dangerous to the West.
An insane response: Muslim countries tend to be inhospitable to Muslim refugees, so the West needs to be open to them.
Austria, population 8,470,000, is going the route of insanity. It is taking in, I have heard, a minimum of 200,000 new Muslim refugees - probably 300,000 or more.
Charity begins at home, I have heard. In this case, the West needs to be charitable to itself - to the majority of Western citizens, for instance, who want democracy to continue, who want religious tolerance (of non-dangerous religions) to continue, etc.
Think once more of a basement where mold is starting. If one is alert, one takes heed and takes the steps necessary to remedy the situation. When there is a lot of damp - as in the West, where there are lots of vulnerabilities to destructive forces - one has to do a lot of work. The payoff: a dry secure home. The cost, if one ignores the mold: health problems for the inhabitants, and slowly the destruction of the home.
All the best for all those who care and dare,
PS. I see Obama - and also Cameron - as yet more opportunistic infections. In a healthy society, they would not have had a chance, especially not Obama in his second presidential election. And now Obama claims that Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. Only a seriously ill population would accept a statement like that.
PPS. Do Muslims, by the way, agree with Obama? In Houston, Hamas-linked CAIR - which would like to present ISIS as non-Islamic - held a rally. How many Muslims showed up? About 6-10:
PPPS. By the way, a piece of good news: more people are searching for information on Islam, than were searching a year ago - searching for keywords like Islam beliefs, Islamic beliefs, facts about Islam.
PPPPS. Another thought about ISIS. Saudi Arabia may not be enthusiastic about ISIS, may even fear it. On the other hand, the orthodox Islam (total pro-Quran) it has promoted worldwide, including through huge funding, may have set the stage for a force like ISIS - which can also be seen as an opportunistic infection needing precisely the kind of environment fostered by Saudi Arabia and countries promoting similar ideologies.
