Mockery – a weapon of mass instruction 1

On a day when Norwegians have made themselves a laughingstock by awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Barack Obama, we draw readers’ attention to an article by the interesting Norwegian essayist Fjordman, recently  posted as a comment  by ‘research Canada’ on our post How to defeat Islam (July 20, 2009) – for which we thank whomever it is.

Fjordman agrees with our view that Islam must be critically examined and argued against. He says ‘Muslims should be worn down with mockery and criticism’. Yes. Muslims told us what weapon we should use to wound them without spilling a drop of blood when they reacted hysterically to the Danish cartoons: mockery.

He also suggests practical ways in which Muslims immigrants could be forced to integrate with European populations or return to their countries of origin:

The best way to deal with the Islamic world is to have as little to do with it as possible. We should completely stop Muslim immigration. This could be done in indirect ways, such as banning immigration from nations known to be engaged in terrorism. All Muslim non-citizens in the West should be removed. We should also change our laws to ensure that Muslim citizens who advocate sharia, preach Jihad, the inequality of “infidels” etc should have their citizenship revoked and be deported back to their country of origin.

We need to create an environment where the practice of Islam is made difficult. Muslim citizens should be forced to accept our secular ways or leave if they desire sharia. Much of this can be done in a non-discriminatory way, by simply refusing to allow special pleading to Muslims. Do not allow Islamic public calls to prayer as this is offensive to other faiths. Both boys and girls should take part in all sporting and social activities of the school and the community. The veil should be banned in public institutions, thus contributing to breaking the traditional subjugation of women. Companies and public buildings should not be forced to build prayer rooms for Muslims. Enact laws to eliminate the abuse of family reunification laws. Do not permit major investments by Muslims in Western media or universities.

In other words, reverse the policies of appeasement that European governments have adopted with disastrous results.

Although we do not agree with everything in the article, and although it is long, we think it is well worth reading.

    Mockery – the Mohammed cartoons – did not spill a drop of blood, but there was indeed bloodshed -and death – in the subsequent rioting by raging Muslims.
    One of the first orders of business, I should think, is to put a stop to religious riots in the West. Rioters and their inciters and organizers should be prosecuted. No more “no-go' areas for the police. Without the threat of physical harm, the publishers of anti-Islamist, or even anti-Islamic, ideas would not be intimidated into self-censorship.
    Most frighteningly, self-censorship will soon be mandatory, as we shall all be forced into silent capitulation with the passage of hate speech laws, or laws prohibiting the defamation of religion.
    It is hard to win the war of ideas, if ideas cannot be expressed.
