Comprehending Cultural Incompatibility
Examining Islamic Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’ and Taqiyya: "[The Islamic Identity is taken to mean the way of life of the Muslim - an all-encompassing set of beliefs, practices and ideologies as derived from the Qur'an and the example of Muhammad (s.a.w).
The Islamic identity is that which separates us from the Kuffar. From Nida'ul Islam; April - May 1997]"
As we venture further into the 21st century the Western World is increasingly confronting a ‘clash of civilizations’. Meanwhile, under legislative directive civil society is obliged to accept multiculturalism. Here each and every ethnic/religious culture is to be accorded equal respect. Criticism of any of these multiple of cultures is discouraged. There remains however, the clash of cultures yet the associated incompatibilities are hardly ever scrutinized.
Contemporary infiltration of secular humanism and relativism, expressed through community acceptance of ‘political correctness’ has, in addition, pushed the Judeo-Christian heritage to the perimeter of that which once was at the core of Western culture. Concepts of honesty, truthfulness, mutual respect and acceptance, once foundational virtues are progressively departing from the heart of our culture. Consequently, it becomes harder for us to comprehend another culture where these virtues are not so highly regarded. This kind of incomprehension begins to surface when the once Christian culture attempts to understand and accept cultural precepts of Islam.
Traditionally moreover, the Christian community has generally exhibited a welcoming attitude of inclusiveness. Islam, under the principles of Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’ is commanded to exhibit striking exclusiveness.
According to Christian moral ethics lying has always been viewed as SIN. In our Westminster style courts of law for instance, there remains the presumption in the witness box to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Under the precepts of taqiyya in Islam the ‘sin of lying’ is not so clear cut.
We will venture now to try and understand the Islamic precepts of Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’ and taqiyya. A further appreciation of these phrases may well be grasped by entering them into your favourite search engine.
Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’ — The topic of Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’ in Islam distinguishes the Muslim (believer in Allah) from the unbeliever (infidel or kuffar). Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’ dictates clear principles of allegiance, alliance, friendship and support–love– toward brother Muslims and to disregard, or deny, to the point of hate, all non-believing infidels (the kuffar). Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’ defines the opposing aspects of al Hubb and al Bughoud (hatred) expressed for the sake of Allah.
This is also recognised as Muwaaat which dictates that the Muslim (believer) must show love, support, help and always elevate each other. Al-Bughoud is the opposite and requires the Mulsim to express, under al Muadaet, animosity to the point of hatred* [in the heart] the Kuffar or unbeliever.
* This kind of hatred or disrespect does not [openly] call for physical hurt or mistreatment but rather hatred of kuffar unbelief.
Qur’anic Sura supporting Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’ find origin in 4:144 " Oh you who believe, do not take the kafireen [kuffar] as awliya instead of believers, do not wish to take Allah as proof against you."
Other Sura quoted in support of ‘al walaa wal barra’ are
"Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah except by way of precaution, that ye may guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (to remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah." [Sura 3: 28].
: "The Believers are but a single Brotherhood: So make peace and reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers; and fear Allah, that ye may receive Mercy." [Sura 49: 10]
Mohammed, speaking of the aims of the enemies of Allah says:– "They long for you to disbelieve even as they disbelieve, so that you may be the same (as them). so do not choose friends from among them until they go out in the way of Allah." [Sura 4:89]
"O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them." [Sura 5: 51-57] see also Sura 58:22 and 9:23
Notwithstanding, justice must always be accorded toward those who do you no hurt and who provide shelter and a land in which to live.
"Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loves those who are just." [Sura 60: 8]
Identification of kuffar (infidel) behaviour and associations prohibited (under aspects of al walaa wal barra) to Muslims living in Western society include:
- Wearing similar clothing- often even sports or recreational gear .
- Using words or expressions common amongst the Kuffar or behaving as they do.
- Using the kuffar calendar other than for business or commerce.
- Participating in kuffar festivals – eg.Christmas or Easter.
- Assisting, taking as assistants or accepting advice from the kuffar.
- Adapting names and knick-names of the kuffar rather than Islam.
- To admire, praise or envy, in any way the achievements, material or technological, of the kuffar.
Muslims are reminded
It is a secular people who say–let us learn from them or be like them. This will affect your Al Walaa’ wa’l Barra’. If you even begin to like or defend them you will become like them–the kufffar
Living amongst the kuffar (infidels) must always be for the sake of da-wah or involvement in jihad. Living amongst the kuffar is only for the purposes of Dunya–business.
Taqiyya–Lying and deception–In common with most religions of the world Islam lays claim to prohibition of lying and deception. For instance, Sura 40:28 reads–‘ Truly Allah guides not one who transgresses and lies.’
Other clearly prohibited kinds of lying are– A lie against Allah; A lie against Mohammed or lying to; about or between, fellow Muslims.
Notwithstanding, Islam does embrace exceptions to such prohibition when under particular circumstances, lying is acceptable; even encouraged.
One Muslim scholar Alif A. Tabbarah writes (in Spirit of Islam p. 247) lying is not always bad, to be sure; there are times when telling a lie is more profitable and better for the general welfare and for the settlement of conciliation amongst people, than telling the truth. To this effect the Prophet says–‘He is not a false person who (through) lies settles conciliation amongst people supports good or says what is good.’
Permissible lying includes:
- Lying to save ones life.
- Lying to effect peace or reconciliation.
- Lying to persuade or appease a woman.
- Lying to find a safe course on a journey or expedition.
- Lying in situations of war.
Another respected Muslim teacher Al Ghazali comments– "Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praise-worthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth or lying, it is unlawful to accomplish this through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal (itself) is permissible." [The Reliance of the Traveller, translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, amana publications, 1997, section r8.2, page 745 see also John Laffin, The Arab Mind, p. 79)] Ghazali adds -----"We must lie when truth leads to unpleasant results."
One Hadith, considered a quotation by Mohammed carries the implication–" The sons of Adam are accountable for all lies except those uttered to help or bring reconciliation between Muslims."
Arab sociologist Sonia Hamady writes– "Lying is a widespread habit among Arabs, and they have a low idea of the truth.."
The one Qur’anic Sura most commonly quoted justifying lying [taqiyya; takeyya; taqiyah or taqiah] is 3:28 see above
One might well conclude that Islam permits a Muslims to lie whenever they perceive their own well being or that of Islam, is under threat.
Further justification for deception finds grounds from Sura 3:54 or 8:30 where Allah Himself is deemed–‘ the best of deceivers’. One translation reads– ‘ they schemed but Allah (too) schemed. He is profound in his machinations.’ also Sura 4.101 suggesting his people are clearly entitled to follow his example in order to keep the opposition off their backs.
This concept of what we [in Western Judeo-Christian culture] deem deception or lying, is rationalised in Islam for any individual under threat as speaking with the tongue deceptively while adhering true to Allah -comfortable in heart.
Concerning deception (lying) in war one might ask how any infidel is to be regarded since such an one is in the realm or domain of war–Da-al-Harb – as distinct from Muslim believers in Da-al-Islam.
Extending this question further– "How does the Muslim (believer) regard any citizen of the USA and its associated nations, including Australia, when they identify them as the Great SATAN and Jews and Israelites, as the Lesser Satan?"
Islamic scholars purport to affirm that depending on the individual, audience or community, it is permissible to disguise, restrain or limit, verbal communication when necessary in the best interest (security) of the Muslim person or Islamic dawah- thereby avoiding harm.
Western cultural perception might well be –"Is this not a license to deceive?"
How then does a Muslim person regard himself when in a position of subservience within an overwhelming western culture? How does he guard or keep himself secure? According to taqiyya he might well express an outward peaceable agenda while inwardly in the heart retaining, in allegiance to Allah, an aggressive emotion.
Therefore to ‘dodge’ any threat, one might ask– would such a (Muslim) person pretend to befriend the infidel (kuffar) or the (kuffar) community though, according to ‘al walaa wal barra’ this would seem to be in violation of Islamic instruction? Yet such attitude would very likely be covered by yielding to the allowable distinction between an outward expression of say, sympathetic adherence to infidel belief/practice, while maintaining inwardly –in the heart- strong allegiance to Allah. Again this could well be seen as a precaution against harm or as a means of promoting a favourable view of Islam.
One political aspect of taqiyya is the concept of ‘out witting’ as in debate or discussion (press interviews for instance) through diversion; by avoiding truthful answers to lead away from the subject in question or other forms of obfuscation. Some might be quick to comment this is merely common political waffle. Playing the victim of intolerance or discrimination, is another recourse. Other more radical interpretation of taqiyya, in the political sphere, implies that certain leaders may well sign agreements or documents when they know (in their hearts) they have no real intension of complying. Such contractual failure would (of course) be in the best interest for the expansion of Islam.
Taqiyya has been deemed by some leading Muslims as a slander or libel against Islam.
Striking differences in the practice of taqiyya exist between the Sunni and Shia Muslims.
Sunni’s adhere to the belief that only Allah determines when one should die. This might well be seen as a kind of fatalism and an absence of free will. The Shia believe life to be a gift from Allah and to be preserved at all costs. Thus, Shi’ites more regularly hold to the practice of taqiyya as they express a greater level of free will.
Historically self preservation became more important to the Shia minority when persecuted by the Sunni.
The Shia further justify their adaptation of of taqiyya by reference to Sura 16:106: "Anyone who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters unbelief, except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in the faith."
To the Sunni’s taqiyya is defined as dissimulation- namely to conceal one’s motives, to feign or pretend.
For the Shia taqiyya can be regarded as the presentation of ‘face’– being outwardly agreeable with one’s opponents while inwardly (in the heart) opposing them- ie. Being able to conceal or disguise one’s beliefs when faced with physical or mental, conflict or danger.
To conclude "taqiyya" is a situational ‘ethic' commanded of Muslims as a form of duplicity, literally lying in Allah's cause.
Will Islam conquer Europe?
Islamists will not find it difficult to conquer Europe. Christianity in Western Europe has virtually ceased to exist. The spirit of secular relativism that originated from the French Enlightenment (Illuminati) has persuaded Europe (including Europe’s churches) to commit a protracted, two centuries long suicide, the symptoms of which were visible in Communism, National-Socialism and moral relativism in general.
Man is a religious being and needs religious faith. If European Christianity had still been healthy today it would have proselytized, it would have reached out with missionary zeal to the millions of Muslims who migrated to Western Europe since the 1970s, it would have offered them Christ and would not be in fear of Islam. Instead, its churches became bastions of religious relativism. Europe offered the newcomers only cultural decadence, from which decent people would only want to shield their children, and spiritual emptiness, which one can only despise. These things are a direct bequest from our much beloved democracy the Trojan horse in our society.
The Europeans, having lost the missionary zeal to reach out to the immigrants, also lack the zeal to pass on their own civilization to their offspring. Worse still, they lack the zeal to have offspring (another deadly legacy of democracy). Since demography is the mother of all politics, it is, barring a miracle from God, certain that Islam will become the old continent’s dominant religion.
Unless Europe rediscovers its will to survive – and it may already be too late (though not excluding miracles) – soon furious Islamists may be holding sway over Europe in much the same way as the Taliban did over Afghanistan, removing all visible remnants of pre-Islamic culture, such as the so called "christian art" of medieval Europe that is, after all, nothing other than paganised cristianity.
In Muslim tradition, the world is divided into Dar al-Islam, where Muslims rule, and Dar al-Harb, the ‘field of war’ where the infidels live. The presumption is that the duty of jihad will continue, until the entire world either adopts the Muslim faith or submits to Muslim rule.
The first jihad was in ad 630, when Mohammed led his army to conquer Mecca. He made a prediction that Islam would conquer the two most powerful Christian centres at the time, Constantinople and Rome. Within 100 years of his death, Muslim armies had conquered the previously Christian provinces of Syria, Palestine, Egypt and the rest of North Africa, as well as Spain, Portugal and southern Italy, until they were stopped by Martel at Poitiers (Tours), in central France in 732 AD. To the East Muslim armies overthrew the ancient Zoroastrian empire of Persia, and conquered much of central Asia and India.
It took 700 years for the Spanish to get their country back in the prolonged ‘Reconquista’. In the meantime the Turks, a central Asian people, had been converted to Islam and had conquered the ancient Christian land of Anatolia (now called Turkey). In 1453 they captured Constantinople — fulfilling Mohammed’s first prediction — which was the centre of the Eastern Orthodox Church.
The glorious Hagia Sophia, which had been one of the most important churches in Christendom for nearly 1,000 years after it was built in 537 AD, was turned into a mosque, and minarets were added. The Turks went on to occupy Greece and much of the Balkans for four centuries, turning the Parthenon into a mosque and besieging Vienna, saved by the Polacks. Had the Islamic hordes not been stopped at Tours and later at Vienna, now we would be under the Moon symbol of the Greek goddess Diana (Artemis) and speaking Arabic. Still, now they may have a much easier third chance with weak Europe in dismal decadence.
In the Middle East, there are regular calls for Mohammed’s second prediction to come true. Sheikh Muhammad bin Abd al-Rahman al-’Arifi, imam of the mosque of the Saudi government’s King Fahd Defence Academy, wrote recently, "We will control the land of the Vatican; we will control Rome and introduce Islam in it." And they may very well do that, a small A bomb in a suitcase would not be too difficult for an Islamic suicide terrorist to take to Rome so to claim his 72 perpetual virgins. Incidentally the Saudi from the 70's have gifted trillion of petro-dollars to built mosques all over the world, the biggest in Europe is in Rome, next to the Vatican, holding over 30,000 people. Mosques are none other that military outposts (foothold) in the enemy's land of infidels, that is, us.
It is interesting to note that there where Islam has put roots NOTHING else has grown.
Europe is not only threatened by Muslim invasion, but is extremely weak and obsessed with social security, which has created rigid social and economic systems that are extremely resistant to change. And this obsession with social security is in turn connected with a fear of the future: this fear of the future has now brought Europe to a profound decline and decadence.
The Europeans fear that the outside world will bring them not trade and wealth, but unemployment and a loss of comfort even though they are currently living in an unprecedented increase in absolute material well-being. They have a two pronged fears: economic and military: the fast economic expansion of colossuses like China and India with the military revival of violent Islam, and rightly so.
Europe is struggling to define itself in the 21st Century. The attempt to create a pan-European consciousness is failing as the EU Constitution suffered a major defeat for it was ill conceived in deliberately omitting from it its Christian roots. European society is also facing a major threat from Muslim immigrants who do not share the values of the rest of Europe. Birth rates across Old Europe have plummeted to below replacement levels (doom for any nation).
By the end of this century, should demographic trends continue, Europe will no longer exist. Granted, demographic trends tend not to continue along the same pattern forever – the decade 1906 to 2006 might as well be light-years apart, but the fast decline of Europe should strongly worry policymakers and citizens, but it appears not for leftists governments are feverishly implementing laws to destroy marriage and the family.
Europe is without Strength to face these major threats due to the feminisation effects of democracy on society.
The error of Europe is in believing that you can have it all, a generous social state and a dynamic economy, masses of Muslim immigrants and multiculturalism. The facts are that a generous social state will bleed the nation to death and multiculturalism is a myth especially with Islam whose aim is NOT to assimilate, but to conquer the nation it has a foothold in and to implement exclusively its own way of life. Silly Europeans, don’t you see that these things, with democracy, have brought you to a crumbling culture and depraved society?
Europe is slowly but surely committing societal suicide. In the UK, more people attend Friday prayers at mosques than Sunday services in cathedrals. The increasingly large Muslim immigrant population in Europe does not share, at all, he same sense of cultural identity as the rest of the population, and NEVER will. The most fundamental building block of society is the family, and Europeans are having fewer children (far below replacement) and fewer families, if any. Europe is surely doomed if it continues on this road and by looking at the devastating effect of democracy no changes are foreseen. Europe is committing Hara-kiri from within whilst being attacked from without by the Islamic hordes, soon the birthplace of Western civilization could be no more than a museum piece, a ruin of a once great and vibrant civilization like the Roman remains scattered across the continent.
The European society has been damaged badly by all these years of de-facto socialism, whenever a business goes bad there is a quickly holler for the government to handle the problem causing a bad already market situation to go worse. This shows how badly the European society has been damaged, because people don’t try to manage their lives by themselves, take chances and, sadly, suffer the consequences of playing the game called "life". No! They call for the big mommy to hold them, stuff a candy into their mouth and rock them asleep.
So the government, true to their socialist tenets, resort to put more taxes on utilities that everybody is using such as petrol where taxes amount to over two third of the selling price (the milking of the people). Why European countries have so many taxes? Because they have a huge burden of welfare they have to pay for. Most of the taxes are lost in the leftist welfare system, not spent on building infrastructure, paying for scientific research or the army.
Similar thing occurred in old Rome where the bread was given free to the citizens and also expensive free entertaining in the many circuses like the Coliseum was freely offered to the people (which demanded ever more sophisticated games) lest they revolted, till the coffers of the State collapsed.
Europe is facing massive problems and challenges:
Demographic: Native European birthrates are below replacement rates, a trend that, should it continue, will ensure the continent's ultimate demise. In public schools throughout the EU, especially in Belgium and France, Muslim immigrants already make up more than 50 percent of the student body. And with Muslim birthrates in the EU countries exploding, Europe is likely to experience a dramatic demographic change in a generation or two. In radical mosques throughout Europe, talk is rife of the ultimate triumph of Islam in Europe.
Religiously: Europe is practically a religion-less society, in the UK, that bulwark of a nation that in time past sent millions of missionaries all over the world, now less than 4% of people attend church services regularly, and decreasing. Europeans have no beliefs and have no hope and no strength, thus they are an easy prey to those that have strong beliefs, even if pagan.
Economically: Having no beliefs and completely devoted to the enjoyment of self, offering all their being to the god of fun, in all aspect, leading eventually to the most profound decadence and economic collapse.
Morally: Having abandoned religion, most European know not what is right or wrong, all is decided on situational ethics and relativism. "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD ponders the hearts." (Pro 21:2)
Militarily: Europe is terribly weak in military virility, it has the equipment and even the muscles, but it is emasculated in terms of resolve. All they seem to be involved in is "Peace Missions" and quickly disengage when the going gets tough.
Invasion: The Muslim immigrant populations numbering well over 20-30 million (not counting other ethnics) and growing exponentially cannot be assimilated, and there is now little to prevent them from seeking to implement Sharī'ah law in Europe and to make this 'infidel' continent part of the domain of Islam.
Can this doom be avoided?
Europe is in profound decadence and the turning point is probably too far-gone but perhaps it can recover (unlikely) but the Muslim advance cannot be stopped unless drastic steps are firmly and promptly taken NOW:
The Islamic religion must be banned,
ALL Mosques (nothing other than military outpost) must be closed and destroyed,
All those professing Islam must be kicked out of Europe.
Yes, drastic steps, but must be done otherwise, we are most assuredly doomed to Islam, for they will not stop in their resolve. Unless it does that, weak democratic Europe as it is now; without belief, decadent, without hope has no chance to withstand the Islamic hordes as they invade. But methinks this will not be done and our doom will surely come to pass, apart a direct intervention of God.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."

1. For over 200 years grave fears have been expressed concerning the earth’s capacity to cope with an exponential population growth.
2. It is obvious that the calamitous famines and widespread starvation repeatedly forecast over the last 200 years, have never eventuated. Yet the call for population control continues to persist.
3. This paper briefly reviews the history of population control incentives, identifies the leading proponents and considers the courses of action that have been adapted to implement population control. Nonetheless, the need to question the validity of the over-population thesis prevails.
4. Few valid explanations for the inability of human kind to sustain (provide food for) the earth’s expanding population have ever been confirmed. Moreover, no consistent correlation between population distribution (density) and poverty or the converse, economic abundance, has ever been corroborated.
5. In exploring the ‘raison d'être’ of the fear mongering ‘elite’, it is clear, whether consciously or unconsciously, that devious and perverse ‘eugenic’ projects have been instituted. The Western power base remains apprehensive of development and economic maturity in the 3rd world nations.
6. An affluent hierarchy of politically powerful individuals and organisations, together with mega-rich foundations, consistently pursue ‘reproductive health’ programmes as opposed to disproportionately low levels of effort directed to provide health care, clean water or encouragement, to self-sufficient agriculture.
7. The demographic consequences of the methods applied by the ‘population controllers’ is creating increasing economic and welfare distresses and drastic differential population distributions: manifest in particular by an increasing Islamic populace.
8. The same ‘elite’ proponents of global population control now link their thesis to sustainability, the environment and global warming; again reinforcing the over-population fears. Advocates for religious syncretism and inter-faith (e.g. URI) have likewise attached themselves to the global population cause.
9. Meanwhile, global population numbers are now in decline and agricultural food provision (where civil strife and government ineptness is absent) continues to outpace population growth.
Muslim Birth – rate:
Increased Muslim birth-rate and migration from, Islamic nations presents a major issue for the Western industrialised world 1; particularly for Europe. On average, Muslim families are expanding with a TFR of the order 3.5. This, coupled with the European ‘birth-dearth’# is resulting in ever expanding Islamic community growth; currently of the order 20 million.
# Where, on average, European woman each have 1.5 children, Muslim women often give birth to 6.
Taken together with increased Muslim migration it is predicted that Europe will reach an Islamic population in excess of 40 million by 2025.
Chuck Colson has commented that, what the former Moores and Ottoman empires failed to carry out, changing demographics will achieve; a Muslim Europe. This has similarly been documented by Bat Yeor in her book ‘Eurabia’. Similar comments have been repeated by Nial Ferguson in the Hoover Digest 3; 2004, Arnold Beichman, a Hoover Institution research fellow and Washington Times columnist, Mark Steyn & numerous others.
Should Turkey be admitted into the European Union a further 50 million Muslim adherents would be added.
The Netherlands presents a prime example of this population drift for, by 2020 it is estimated that half of the children under 18 will be of Islamic decent.
Colonel Gadafi (Al Gathafi) of Libya recently on Al Jazeera TV [10 April 2006] confidently laid claim to the following–"with 50 million Muslims in Europe there are signs that Allah will grant victory in Europe…within a few decades.."
Other headlines are now common such as:
"The pill is mightier than the sword." 2
"The Islamic Population Bomb."
"The power of Islam is in its birth-rate."3
"Babies win wars." 4
"Conquered by the Muslim baby boom."
The high fertility exhibited throughout the Arab nations of the Middle East 5 is further cause for concern – TFR for Yemen 7.2; Palestine 5.9; Saudi Arabia 5.7 meanwhile, at the low end, Lebanon 2.4; Iran 2.4 and Tunisia 2.1. These latter 3 have all but reverted to replacement levels and ZPG.
The same trend is evident throughout the Indian sub-continent Muslim women are out birthing the Hindu (TFR 4.4 to 3) These kind of divergences have been attributed to higher general disapproval of family planning amongst many Muslim communities.
The Malaysian Government (a Muslim nation) abandoned population control in 1984.Yet this country has never seen any marked over-population poverty; for, under free market reforms they have exhibited remarkable economic advances.
A few commentators have bravely asserted that the western attitude toward contraceptive, recreational sex; free from responsibility for (many) children has been (rightly) condemned by Islamic spiritual leaders. Moreover, Islamic communities have been consistently suspicious of the West’s approaches to health and reproductive education.
In Nigeria for instance 6 , these fears and active resistance seem to have been justifiably confirmed. Historically as part of the 1991/92 UNFPA birth-control promotion, ‘fake’ documents were written by ‘a supposed Islamic theologian’7 defining family planning ideas in stark contrast to traditional Islamic views.
Furthermore, in 2004 UNICEF polio vaccine was found to have been contaminated with sterilizing agents. Documented evidence of the presence of toxic drugs affecting human reproduction certainly is strong justification for Islamic resistance to UN Family health programs.
Could it be that Islamic resistance and hesitancy in implementing birth-control, is the reason why sub-Saharan Africa has not exhibited any dramatic population decline?
Muslim commentary 9 on population control reads:
"We can see that the ‘family planning’ campaign is being run on baseless claims. The real issue is "How to increase the share of the world’s population living under Western Values?" There are only two ways. Either increase the ‘Western’ population, or decrease that of the rest of the world. Unfortunately, the first option does not exist. The ‘Me generation’ in the West today is unwilling to give the sacrifices needed for bearing and bringing up children. Hence, the push is to decrease the numbers of the ‘other’ populations. The real goal of ‘family planning’ is to make sure that the world’s political geography stays in favour of current powers."
Notwithstanding, the reproductive controllers do not hesitate or take stock. David Reardon 10 describes other examples of female human guinea-pigs detained in the hands of population controllers. Commenting upon a BBC documentary 11, describing a new pregnancy vaccine in Mexico and the Philippines, it was confirmed that a tetanus vaccine had, unknown to the recipients, been laced with the hormone human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) to promote rejection of pregnancy. This vaccine was first trialled in Australia in 1986 by Adelaide Professor Warren Jones.12
Curious Filipino young women could not grasp why they had been selected for inoculation against tetanus when the disease was more prevalent amongst young men.
It seems that this program was the outcome of a 20 year long WHO project 13 to develop an anti-fertility vaccine tied to a tetanus toxoid as a carrier. This same exercise has been identified in Mexico and Nicaragua also.
Anti-fertility "vaccines" are a clear example of the impact "population control" has had on contraceptive research.
It is now recognised that force of arms may not be the strategy for any Islamic invasion of Europe; the power of Islam is in its birth-rate. It is three times higher than for non-Muslim Europeans yet seemingly, is now beginning to decline as their affluence grows. UN projections suggest that the Arab world birth-rates will eventually converge with those of the US at ~ 2.1 ZPG stability.
In Iran such convergence is already beginning to occur. Observations of this kind have convinced Spangler of the Asian Times [see The Demographics of Radical Islam] that an increasing pool of unemployed [disenchanted] Islamic young men throughout Europe may well rise up in anger over the next 20 or so years. The US Council on Foreign Relations seems to recognise the same scenario.14
Beside expressing a strong leaning for the introduction of disciplined, Sharia Law, assertive Muslim communities might well rise up to exhibit riotous unrest, as exemplified recently by the rebellion demonstrated as a reaction to the Danish cartoons, deemed, by the Islamic people, as offensive to their ‘Prophet’ -Mohammed – and their religious culture.
A dominant question that must be addressed is– "Can any European Society, increasing in its Muslim (demographic) character, resist becoming Islamic in its political flavour? In addition, it should be noted that any political resistance, to Islamic migration, in order to slow the internal ‘birth-rate invasion’, particularly if the migrants seek registration as refugees or asylum seekers, will be condemned as discriminatory, racist and a denial of human rights.
Who ever would have reasoned, as Bremen University Professor Heinsohn, proposes that ‘Babies Win Wars.?"
