WESTERN PROGRESSIVE SOCIETY & ISLAM: The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend
by Lawrence Fox
The manner in which Western Progressive Society responds to violence perpetuated in the name of the Prophet Mohammed, including the Jan.7, 2015 murder of a group of French cartoonists and the Nov. 13, 2015 murder of 129 in Paris, is tragically logical.
I say logical since educational, journalistic, judicial, political and corporate entities within Western Progressive Society fundamentally adhere to the vile principal, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
This is not hard to grasp once a person steps back and views the ethical devolution of Western Society following the Reformation. After the Reformation came the Enlightenment, and the Age of Reason, which built the foundation of the French Revolution -- the purest expression of a progressive society undertaking “jihad” against Catholicism and everything Christian.
Then there came the gifts of Empiricism and German Idealism both contributing to the madness known as dialectical materialism. She is the Lady who seduced modern man into embracing with gusto the progressive movements of Nazism, Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism, Liberation Theology, and the modern pro-abortion movement.
All of these movements contributed to the slaughter of 80 to 100 million people of faith around world; a good percentage of them being Christians, as well as millions of unborn children.
Hate creates strange bedfellows. I can remember my years at University of California, Berkeley, listening to various “progressives” speaking about their hopes for the death of religion, the death of capitalism, the murder of unborn children, the death of the family, and the death of America and Israel.
It was amazing to see Muslims parading with lesbians, feminists, communists, and anarchists! I remember one time asking the Muslims, “What do Muslims have in common with the LGBT movement and the abortionist?” Their reply was, “We hate Western Society (Christianity and Capitalism) and especially America.” The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
The progressive hatred for all expressions of Judeo-Christian thought (especially Catholicism) has embedded itself so deeply within the fabric of Western Society that any verbal or written resistance to the “progressive” stance is now “offensive hate speech.”
Object to the murder of an unborn child, sodomy, prostitution, contraception, assisted suicide, the destruction of human embryos for science, children undergoing sex change, or the adoption of children by same sex parents, and you have now fallen into the cesspool of intolerance.
Your offensive hate speech merits lost business opportunities, prison, elimination of your passport, and subjects you to being shouted out on campuses, ridiculed by the press, and marginalized by the courts.
And yet the butchering of Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and moderate Muslims in numerous countries (Mali, Libya, Egypt, Nigeria, Sudan, Malaysia, Palestine, Israel, Indonesia, Pakistan, China, Syria, Lebanon, Armenia, Iraq, East Timor, Chechnya, North Korea, India, Thailand, and Sri Lanka) is not offensive in the Western mind.
In the Progressive West, persons who adhere literally to the numerous chapters in the Quran, which promote violence as the will of Allah, are conveniently considered not to be Muslims, but “extremists,” who have co-opted the religion of peace. This peaceful religion – by the way -- has been embroiled in a 1300-year civil war between Sunnis and Shiite Muslims -- with no end in sight.
The attitude within Islam towards Christianity and Judaism has never been favorable and today it is most lamentable. Regarding non-Muslims, the Quran says, “The most implacable of men in the enmity to the faithful (Muslim) are the Jews and the pagans and the nearest affection to them are those who say, ‘We are Christians.’” (Surah 5:82) Countries dominated by Islamic culture tolerate the execution, persecution, imprisonment, and destruction of Jewish and Christian structures based upon a literal reading of the Quran. “O Believers! Take not the Jews or Christians as friends. They are but one another’s friends.” (Surah 5: 56)
“There are many non-violent Muslims,” constitutes the pitiful polemics from the mouths of Western leaders as if that contributes to honest dialogue with another re-emerging culture of death, Islam itself. This only demonstrates to me that an ideological exchange exists between Western Progressive Society, Nazism, Communism, and Jihadist Islam.
The jihadists are only doing what the spiritual descendants of the French Revolution, Nazism and Communism wish they could continue if they were not too busy self-abusing themselves with drugs, abortion, contraception, suicide, trans-gendering, pornography and masturbation, and forms of asphyxiated sex.
Western Society deems it hate speech when anyone seeks to hold the foundations of Islam accountable for the butchery which began in the Seventh Century – where its adherents wiped out whole communities of Coptic, Syrian, Armenian, Malabar, Greek and Latin Rite Christians.
In 2006, Pope Benedict XVI -- speaking at Regensburg, Germany -- simply called Islam and Western Society to embrace both “faith and reason” as a means overcoming fideism (faith apart from reason), fanaticism, and ethical suicide.
The best that Western Society could do was mock him and blame him for offending Islam and therefore make him guilty of the subsequent assassination of Christians in Somalia, Sudan, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Egypt.
As long as Islamic jihadists continue to butcher Christians and Western Society is willing to consider this as tolerable “collateral damage,” it will cling to President George W. Bush’s Doctrine, “That Islam is a religion of peace which was been hijacked by bad non-Muslims” and Barack Obama’s self-absorbed mantra, “The future must not belong to those who offend the Prophet.”
Obama then drops drone missiles on Muslims who he identifies as not being Muslim because they view Obama’s marriage to a “so-called Christian woman” to be an offense against Mohammed. And so the White House and the U.S State Department became little more than brothels visited by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Yes, these "honest" Muslims were the ones behind the assassination of Anwar Sadat, who dared to make peace with Israel.
The tragedy of the logic continues. The American government makes deals with Al-Qaeda jihadist Muslims in Syria, who are fighting against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a group that the White House conveniently defines as non-Muslim. The White House crawls into bed with Iraqi Shiite Muslims, who hate Iraqi Sunni Muslims. The Iraqi Shiite Muslims turn around and make deals with Shiite Muslims in Iran that seek to nuke Israel off the map.
Western leaders protest “ho hum” when Hamas Muslims sends rockets into Israel. But when Israel retaliates by bombing rocket launcher sites where Hamas has conveniently stuffed Christian women and children, the West protests “those dirty Jews.” When Boko Haram burns alive and enslaves Christians in Nigeria, Western Society does nothing except to send out meaningless hashtags, “Bring back our girls.”
It is all very discouraging to say the least, since there is not even an attempt to honestly dialogue with Islam and those elements supporting the Quran from which such vile behavior flows. But how can the West respond to such barbarism, while it defends the legal practice of tearing apart the limbs of fully developed babies in their mother’s wombs and identifies such terror as “Western Progressive Choice.”
There is not a thread of hope that things will get better as long as the ideologies, which presently govern Western Society, remain in the majority.
Dear Christians, Jews, Animists, and moderate Muslims in Libya, Egypt, Nigeria, Sudan, Malaysia, Palestine, Israel, Indonesia, Pakistan, China, Syria, Lebanon, Armenia, Iraq, East Timor, Chechnya, North Korea, Thailand, and Sri Lanka,
Please know that apart from a few brave men in the United States and the Australian Military, you need to fend for yourself. By the way, Bill and Melinda Gates want to send you contraception and the morning after pills to comfort you in your loss because pregnancy is the root of your problems.
Western Society, United Nations, and NATO
P.S. Most of us are running extremely high deficits and were hoping that you would please send us money. It would be much appreciated.
