Death Worship

Gus Van Horn has an interesting post showing the utterly destructive nature of the Palestinians. He points out correctly that man’s tool of survival is his mind, that the Palestinians are not using this faculty, and that they are dying as a result.

I would go further to say that a man’s primary choice is to decide whether he wants to remain in existence, i.e. if he wants to live or not, and only if he does, is it essential for him to use his mind. I submit that the Palestinians and most Islamists have not even made the choice to live -- they are in fact self-avowed death worshippers. This is something that is very difficult for good people to grasp, precisely because it is so horrible, but grasp it we must if we are to win the war they are waging on us.

The evidence for this conclusion is all around us -- from Chief Palestinian Authority cleric Mufti Sheikh Ikrimeh Sabri who states "We tell them, in as much as you love life, the Muslim loves death and martyrdom. There is a great difference between he who loves the hereafter and he who loves this world. The Muslim loves death and [strives for] martyrdom."; to parents who raise their children in preparation for war and martyrdom; to worshippers renouncing their means of survival - reason and replacing it with its antithesis - faith; to an explicit and exclusive focus on an (alleged) after-life -- all these (and many more) go to show that Islamists truly do not wish to live.

I would also opine that the Islamists’ focus on death (with its attendant embrace of faith / rejection of reason) is the fundamental fact explaining why nothing productive has come out of the Islamic world for centuries upon centuries, why it has produced essentially no discoveries or intellectual achievements, and why much of its populace is so backward and barbarous.

Finally, Gus’ observation
“The consequence of simply giving loot to the Hamastanis is that they never learn that money can also represent productive effort because they never have to put forth any such effort on their own in order to survive. Worse, being kept alive, they remain able to continue planning bombing raids on civilized Israel.”
reminded me of a book Werner Keller wrote during the cold war entitled: East minus West equals Zero, in which he contended that Russia would have collapsed on its own were it not for Western aid and technology transfer -- loot which needlessly empowered and emboldened our enemy for 60+ years.

I think the same could now be said of Islamic nations (i.e. Islamists minus the West equals Zero). It is only by nationalizing oil discovered and exploited by Western capital and technology that most of the powerful Islamic regimes exist, and it is only by receiving aid that regimes like Hamas survive. Were we to deny them the fruits of Western thought, they would simply crumble away. And deny them we must, for such is the only moral and just approach -- the only one in which the consequences of Islamism fall exclusively to its practitioners.

P.S. I think this photo from Drinking From Home neatly sums up the widely held death-worshipping attitude of Islamists:
