No More Islamisnomers

I wrote the following piece - Calling Islam "Islam" - a few years ago, and I think it’s worth posting again. I notice that after each Islamic attack against us, people begin to use more proper terminology to identify the enemy, which is crucial in eventually defeating the enemy. I recall watching panel discussions after 9/11, with each panelist using a different term to describe the enemy we face. That annoyed the hell out of me as I think it’s incredibly important to identify the proper terms when speaking about our enemy, and to NEVER create terms, for whatever reason. To me, the only difference between “Islamism” and Islam is three letters. Below I try my best to make the case why we should always call Islam “Islam.”

Western intellectuals and commentators refer to the enemy’s ideology as:
“Islamic Fundamentalism,” “Islamic Extremism,” “Totalitarian Islam,” “Islamofascism,” “Political Islam,” “Militant Islam,” “Bin Ladenism,” “Islamonazism,” “Radical Islam,” “Islamism,” etc….

The enemy calls it “Islam.”

Imagine, if during past wars, we used terms such as “Radical Nazism,” “Extremist Shinto” and “Militant Communism.” The implication would be that there are good versions of those ideologies, which would then lead some to seek out “moderate” Nazis. Those who use terms other than “Islam” create the impression that it’s some variant of Islam that’s behind the enemy that we’re facing. A term such as “Militant Islam” is redundant, but our politicians continue praising Islam as if it were their own religion. Bush told us “Islam is peace” — after 2,996 Americans were murdered in its name. He maintained that illusion throughout his two terms, and never allowed our soldiers to defeat the enemy. And now we have Obama, who tells us, from Egypt:
“I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
If only he felt that way about America. Washington’s defense of Islam has trumped the defense of America and this dereliction of duty could well be called Islamgate.

Islam is a political religion; the idea of a separation of Mosque and State is unheard of in the Muslim world. Islam has a doctrine of warfare, Jihad, which is fought in order to establish Islamic (“Sharia”) Law, which is, by nature, totalitarian. Sharia Law calls for, among other things: the dehumanization of women; the flogging/stoning/killing of adulterers; and the killing of homosexuals, apostates and critics of Islam. All of this is part of orthodox Islam, not some “extremist” form of it. If jihadists were actually “perverting a great religion,” Muslims would have been able to discredit them on Islamic grounds and they would have done so by now. The reason they can’t is because jihadists are acting according to the words of Allah, the Muslim God. From the Koran:

“Slay the idolators wherever you find them…” Chapter 9, verse 5

“When you encounter the unbelievers, strike off their heads until you have made a great slaughter among them….” Ch. 47:4

Beyond the doctrine, there is the historical figure of Mohammad, who, more than anyone, defines Islam. How would you judge a man who lies, cheats, steals, rapes and murders as a way of life? This evil man is Islam’s ideal man, Mohammad. Whatever he said and did is deemed moral by virtue of the fact that he said it and did it. It’s no accident that the only morality that could sanction his behavior was his own. Nor is it an accident that Muslims who model themselves after him are the most violent.

For the 13 years that Mohammad failed to spread Islam by non-violent means, he was not so much peaceful as he was powerless. It was only through criminal activity and with the help of a large gang of followers that he managed to gain power. But he wanted his moral pretense too, so he changed Islam to reflect the fact that the only way it could survive was through force. And so, acting on Allah’s conveniently timed “revelation” that Islam can and should be spread by the sword, Mohammad led an army of Muslims across Arabia in the first jihad. From then on, violence became Islam’s way in the world. And today, acting on Mohammad’s words, “War is deceit” — Muslims use earlier “peaceful” verses from the Koran as a weapon against the ignorance and good will of their victims. Those “peaceful” passages in the Koran were abrogated by later passages calling for eternal war against those who do not submit to Islam. How Mohammad spread Islam influenced the content of its doctrine and therefore tells us exactly what Islam means.
Note also that the only reason we’re talking about Islam is because we’ve been forced to by its jihad. And where are Islam’s “conscientious objectors”? Nowhere to be found, for even lax Muslims have been silent against jihad. But that doesn’t stop desperate Westerners from pointing to them as representives of “Moderate Islam.”

Far from being a personal faith, Islam is a collectivist ideology that rejects a live-and-let-live attitude towards non-Muslims. And while the jihadists may not represent all Muslims, they do represent Islam. In the end, most Muslims have proven themselves to be mere sheep to their jihadist wolves, irrelevant as allies in this war. Recovering Muslims call the enemy’s ideology “Islam,” and they dismiss the idea of “Moderate Islam” as they would the idea of “Moderate Evil.” When, based on his actions, Mohammad would be described today as a “Muslim Extremist,” then non-violent Muslims should condemn their prophet and their religion, not those who point it out.

Islam is the enemy’s ideology and evading that fact only helps its agents get away with more murder than they would otherwise. Western politicians have sold us out, so it’s up to the rest of us to defend our way of life by understanding Islam and telling the truth about it in whatever way we can. If we can’t even call Islam by its name, how the hell are we going to defend ourselves against its true believers? One could argue that we’d be better off if the West would just choose one of the many terms currently used for the enemy’s ideology. For my part, I call the enemy what they are, “Jihadists,” and our response, “The War on Jihad.” But behind it all, it’s Islam that makes the enemy tick.
Despite my frustrations with the refusal of many to call Islam “Islam,” I know that those who speak out against Jihad put themselves in danger, and I respect their courage. But it’s important that we acknowledge Islam’s place in the threat we face and say so without equivocation. Not saying “Islam” helps Islam and hurts us. So let’s begin calling the enemy’s ideology by its name. Let’s start calling Islam “Islam.”

Below is my response to those critics, especially Muslims and Leftists, who make the issue about Muslims and not Islam; who always allege that critics of Islam are condemning 1.5 billion people, that Muslims are good people and innocent, etc., etc. So here's an excerpt from my piece Non-Muslim Muslims and the Jihad Against the West (aka My Name is Bosch and I'm a Recovered Muslim):

For those who want to make this about Muslims and not Islam, here are some of my thoughts on that:

First, my name is Bosch and I’m a recovered Muslim, so I have some insight into this, coupled with the fact that I studied Islam as if my life depended on it after 9/11.

There is Islam and there are Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t. But that doesn’t mean we should consider these reluctant Muslims allies against Jihad. I’ve been around Muslims my entire life and most of them truly don’t care about Islam. The problem I have with many of these essentially non-Muslim Muslims, especially in the middle of this war being waged on us by their more consistent co-religionists, is that they give the enemy cover. They force us to play a game of Muslim Roulette since we can’t tell which Muslim is going to blow himself up until he does. And their indifference about the evil being committed in the name of their religion is a big reason why their reputation is where it is.

So while I understand that most Muslims are not at war with us, they’ve proven in their silence and inaction against jihad that they’re not on our side either, and there’s nothing we can say or do to change that. We just have to finally accept it and stop expecting them to come around, while doing our best to kill those who are trying to kill us.

Another problem with Muslims who aren’t very Muslim is that they lead some among us to conclude that they must be practicing a more enlightened form of Islam. They’re not. They’re “practicing” life in non-Muslim countries, where they are free to live as they choose. But their “Islam” is not the Islam. There’s no separate ideology apart from Islam that’s being practiced by these Muslims in name only, there’s no such thing as “Western Islam”.

Non-observant Muslims are not our problem, but neither are they the solution to our problem. Our problem is Islam and its most consistent practitioners. There is nothing in Islam that stays the hand of Muslims who want to kill non-Muslims. If an individual Muslim is personally peaceful, it’s not because of Islam, it’s because of his individual choice, which is why I often say that your average Muslim is morally superior to Mohammad, to their own religion. The very rare Muslim who helps us against Jihad is acting against his religion, but that doesn’t stop some among us from thinking that his choice somehow shines a good light on Islam. It doesn’t. A good Muslim according to us is a bad Muslim according to Islam.

One Nation Under The Constitution

UPDATE 3/19/2014: Mark Levin was respectfully challenged on his show by an atheist fan of his who called into his show the other day about his new religious litmus test for GOP candidates, and Levin had nothing but contempt for the member of his "beloved audience" by calling him an "intolerant" "punk" "ass" before and after he hung up on him. That Really pissed me off and tells me that religion has a Far bigger hold on "Mr. Constitution" than he led his listeners to believe.

I posted a picture of myself the other day from 2010 where I was at a Tea Party rally, holding my placard, "One Nation Under Individual Rights." I'm reminded of that when I heard conservative Brent Bozell say that CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) inviting an Atheist group was an "atrocity". That pissed me off and I vented on Tammy Bruce's radio show when I co-hosted it with Amy Peikoff this past Tuesday. I find it inexplicable that conservatives would alienate those who love America solely because of their non-belief in God. I'm not a conservative -I follow Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism- but I'm a patriot, whether religious conservatives accept me or not. Writing in National Review Online, conservative atheist Charles Cooke writes:

"Yesterday, in response to one of the many brouhahas that CPAC seems always to invite, Brent Bozell issued the following statement:

The invitation extended by the ACU, Al Cardenas and CPAC to American Atheists to have a booth is more than an attack on conservative principles. It is an attack on God Himself. American Atheists is an organization devoted to the hatred of God. How on earth could CPAC, or the ACU and its board of directors, and Al Cardenas condone such an atrocity?
The particular merits of the American Atheists group to one side, this is a rather astounding thing for Bozell to have said. In just 63 words, he confuses disbelief in God for “hatred” for God — a mistake that not only begs the question but is inherently absurd (one cannot very well hate what one does not believe is there); he condemns an entire conference on the basis of one participant — not a good look for a struggling movement, I’m afraid; and, most alarmingly perhaps, he insinuates that one cannot simultaneously be a conservative and an atheist. I reject this idea — and with force."

Cooke at one point writes that we are "One Nation Under the Constitution". Read it all here.

"My Father is Jewish, My Mother is Jewish. I am Jewish."

Obama's Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, tweeted "Daniel Pearl's story is a reminder that individual accountability and reconciliation are required to break cycles of violence" because Daniel Pearl's "story" is *actually* a reminder that we're at war with Islam's savage true believers. Daniel Pearl was kidnapped because he was an American Jew and his last words before he was beheaded by Muslims screaming "Allahu Akbar!" are in my illustration. More on the fallout from her tweet here.

Update: Mark Levin chimes in...

Can't Bring Gray to a Black and White Fight

In an otherwise fair, if critical, piece about me and my work, one A. David Lewis, writing at Islamicommentary, thinks that "ultimately, there’s no fight that needs to be had here — just a long-overdue two-way conversation between Fawstin and his supposed enemies."

"conversation" with my "supposed enemies" aka a conversation with al Qaeda. LOL 

Check out the piece, whose title is meant to counter my position, Bringing Gray Into A Black & White Fight.

One Nation Under Individual Rights

Me at a one of The Tea Party events I've attended over the years. The biggest difference between the Carter years and the Obama years is the existence of The Tea Party. Americans are fed up with the federal government and are getting politically organized, which is the the last thing Washington, DC wants. Just look at how unhinged they've gotten over Ted Cruz, who embraces The Tea Party unlike any other politician. Despite the scumedia declaring it dead, the modern day Tea Party is alive and well and about to celebrate its 5th anniversary. In a post-Carter America, we got Reagan. In a post-Obama America, we need a candidate who embraces The Tea Party. Here are all of my Tea Party/Tea Party-related blog posts.

And here is the man who sparked the modern day Tea Party movement, Rick Santelli, on its 5th Anniversary and what it means.

Marvel's "Muslim superhero" Craves Bacon?

So desperate to appeal to "Infidel" comic book buyers, (who they think will Eat It Up) Marvel's Muslim writer and editor flout Muslim Pigotry by having their "Muslim superhero"s First words be about wanting "Delicious, delicious infidel meat" aka Bacon. (how does she know it's "delicious" if she never ate bacon?) Having been raised a Muslim, I Never heard that nonsense from any Muslim I knew. This kind of pandering is as transparent as it comes, because the fact is, if they made their "Muslim superhero" a devout Muslim, it would be canceled faster than the Flash.

The Post-9/11 "Muslim Superhero" Invasion

I just got the heads up from "Creeping Sharia" about a State Department initiative called "Superheroes At State". Looking at the ad for the chat, what kind of "superheroes" are being promoted? "Muslim superheroes". Exclusively. If you're getting bored by my Constant pushback against the Islamization of our culture and of the medium I Love, then I'm going to bore you to Death because I find this Assault on our culture, on Our Comic Book medium, Absolutely Unacceptable. Maybe if other cartoonists were to take it on as well, I wouldn't be posting about it as much.

This is a Full On Islamic Assault on our youth -with the help of the American left- in order to normalize Islam to very young, very impressionable comic book readers. It's insidious, and if you don't believe it, you will when it becomes even more obvious than it is today. Before 9/11, there were hardly any "Muslim superheroes". After 9/11? So many I can't even say. There is No demand in America for "Muslim superheroes", it's being Shoved down our throats. Please help me fight back this enemy propaganda, it's poisoning the one place where good and evil is still being dramatized, week after week. Please spread the word. Share this on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

I recently wrote a piece for PJ Media called -10 Truths Mainstream Comics Evade In Order To Promote "Muslim Superheroes" - that lays out my reasons why, at a time of War, being waged on us by Muslims, "Muslim superheroes" are the Last thing American comic book publishers should be involved with. Please read it and share it. Thank you.

And here are all of my posts on IslamiComics.

They Cry "Islamophobia" In Order to Breed Islamophilia

Look no further than the universally positive reviews of Marvel's "Muslim superhero" comic book to prove that Islamophilia, and not "Islamophobia", is our problem. I literally cannot find one honest, critical review of Ms. Marvel #1, and not because it's above criticism, but because it's an IslamiComic. Comic book critics are rooting for it in a fearful, unseemly way, with almost all of them saying that it adds "diversity" to comics.  Like the "diversity" found in "the muslim world"? 

From an older post of mine:

"Islamophobia" was concocted by the enemy to shut down any and All criticism about Islam. I call it islamophoNia.  Our True Problem is Islamophilia - uncritical admiration of Islam, (no knowledge of Islam required).

"The Shadow Knows" the Truth.

Obama vs Pigman

"What's your favorite Barack Obama comic book appearance?"

That's a poll question on a comic book website. 

I don't have a favorite, as you can imagine, but I do have two off panel appearances by Obama in The Infidel #2, which I think are more in character than his other comic book appearances.

-̶P̶r̶e̶s̶i̶d̶e̶n̶t̶'̶s̶ ̶D̶a̶y̶- George Washington's Birthday

Today used to be the official observance of George Washington's birthday, reserved for the third Monday of February, even though it's officially on February 22. Now, President's Day is used as a time to honor all U.S. presidents, even terrible ones, in order to pretend that they're on the same level as Washington.

Obama the Racist

Obama says the biggest problems that we're facing right now have to do with him trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. What a Racist.

Table for One early cover design

"I walk into a crowded room, not a soul in sight."

That's the key line in my first graphic novel, Table for One, for which I'm celebrating its tenth anniversary this month. I was looking through an old stack of my artwork the other day and I came across this cover design that I drew a number of years before I even worked on the graphic novel. If you read the book, you'd know the look of the hero is slightly different, from his face to his clothes. I have other drawings like this that I'll trickle in from time to time. More on Table for One here.

Spider-Man Goes Green

"I Didn't Join To Be Sacrificed." - American Soldier

Army Ranger who recently left the military: “I had to get out. I have a family who needs me. I didn’t join to be sacrificed. I joined to fight.” 

From my article, My Name is Bosch and I'm a Recoverd Muslim: 

Our altruistic concern for the future and well being of the Muslim world has come at the expense of American lives and treasure. We’ve placed the well being of “The Muslim World” above our own self-defense. We’ve placed today’s Big Lie, “Islam means peace”, above the truth we need to act on. We’ve placed the lives of Muslim civilians above the lives of our soldiers, placing them in absolutely unnecessary danger in order to protect innocent (or even guilty) civilians. Our Rules of Engagement might as well be renamed the Golden Rules of Engagement, as our soldiers have been forced to treat the enemy the way we’d like to be treated. And the enemy takes full advantage of that, as they do of all of the policies our morally vain politicians have concocted. We need to shift the focus onto our own well-being at the enemy’s expense for a change.

We’ve tried everything since 9/11 except real war. War is the answer to Jihad.

Just saw that Disney Pixar's Facebook page had this as its profile picture. In today's world, that's not an innocent positioning of the Pixar ball.

America's Sweetheart

"At the time, Shirley Temple Black was Chief of Protocol and she presented the guests in the receiving line to the President and the First Lady.

From Action Comics to Affirmative Action Comics

I'm reposting this after I read Marvel Comics' "Muslim superhero" comic book, Ms. Marvel #1. It's a mediocre comic book that says Nothing about the fact that Muslims are on the warpath, waging a global Jihad on the civilized world. The Only reason we're talking about Islam is because of Jihad, not because Americans are interested in the exploits of a non-Muslim Muslim American girl whose first words in the comic are "I just want to smell it… delicious, delicious infidel meat" (which could be taken the wrong way) as she eyes bacon in a deli. Now, I was raised Muslim in the Bronx, NY, and if there was one thing that was prohibited to us, it was pork. Yet we're to believe that this "Muslim superhero" craves bacon? What a cheap way to try to get us on her side. Here are all of my blog posts on post 9/11 IslamiComics. And If you haven't already read it, here's my most comprehensive piece on IslamiComics, at PJ Media: 10 Truths Mainstream Comic Books Evade To Promote 'Muslim Superheroes'.

Marvel's Truth(less) Cannon

In two separate reviews for Marvel Comics' "Muslim superhero" comic book, we're told that the "truth cannon" is aimed at us. Here's the truth…

Bill O'Reilly: " I Don't Think…"

UPDATE: and now, Feb. 19, 2014 O'Reilly says that Obama is a "patriot". He thinks a man who embraced the fundamentally anti-American ideologies of those who raised him - Islam & Communism - is a "patriot". He thinks the man who's been long time friends with an America-Hating communist terrorist, Bill Ayers, is a "patriot". He thinks the man who threatened to "fundamentally transform the United States of America" is a "patriot'. What a POS. 

It's not that those who give the benefit of the doubt to bad guys are too good to think badly of others.

It's that they're not good enough.
