          There are very few things that I keep on my mind because they get written down.   My father used to tell me that anything written down is permanent and that it could be used against you at some point in the future…and he was right.   The problem, if you want to call it that, is that it works both ways…something written can be used in your defense, as well as against you.   You might have thought one way when you were younger, and then as you got older your values may have changed.  Thoughts cannot be interpreted, and words can be, both ways.  I like words and especially words that people much smarter than I am, have used.   Quotes from those kinds of people are almost always better than anything I could have said…so I use them.   Not everything is a good quote, and some are better than others, but if they get your point across then that’s what matters.   Let’s look at a few things that have been on my mind and maybe there’s a quote about them.
          The flag, the pledge, and the vision
Recently in a small town in Oklahoma, Owasso to be exact, the police refused to allow the American flag in the football stadium.  They were acting on orders from school officials and students were made to put the flags back in their vehicles.  This happened on the same day that, in South Carolina, another high school said that American flags were not welcome at the football game.   Folks, they would have to put me in jail before I would NOT bring an American flag to a game, if I so desired.   On the face of it you might think that it’s an insignificant event, but stack it alongside the other things that are going on, which demean the flag, the armed forces and our country, and it’s a really big deal.   I daresay that we’re on a slippery slope and we’re wearing very slick shoes.   
Back in May, at a Trump rally, his people were told not to sing the national anthem.   The excuse given was that there wasn’t enough time, and Trump responded that yes, there was time, and brought out Sherry Wilkins to sing it.   At a softball game in Louisiana the story was the same…not enough time to sing the Star Spangled Banner, so the fans started singing it and the game was held up for a brief time.   In April at, of all places, the 911 Memorial, some children from a middle school in North Carolina were told they could not sing the national anthem there.   The guards said they needed a permit.   A spokesperson for the memorial said that the situation could have been handled in a more gentle manner.   Let’s suppose, for a moment, that you wanted to visit the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.   This is a place where many tourists go.   Would it be against the rules somehow, if a class of children, visibly impressed, started singing the Star Spangled Banner?   It very well might be…and that’s wrong.
The United States Ninth Circuit Court recently ruled that a teacher cannot lead the Pledge Of Allegiance because the court ruled that reciting this phrase is a violation of the alleged Constitutional separation of church and state.   So, if the teacher doesn’t lead them, can the students say it by themselves?   That question has yet to be raised as a test case.  When I went to school, we said the Pledge Of Allegiance every morning, but the phrase “under God” was not in it then.  Looking at this in a simplistic manner, the pledge is for the flag, so if the phrase offends you, remain silent for that part, and say the rest of it.  The largest group of faiths in the country are lumped together as “Christian”, but they don’t have exclusive rights to God, so the phrase could apply to everyone…except atheists and Muslims, that is. 
There have been several incidents involving a person wearing a uniform…and it could have been a member of the armed forces, a law enforcement person, even a firefighter.  
There have been recent events where members of a police department were refused service…in restaurants, in WalMart and I believe one was in a donut shop, but I couldn’t trace that one.   The point here is that some people simply do not understand that the police, the fire department or the military, are not their enemies.  If something happens in their city, they’re most likely to call upon these uniformed personnel to come to their aid.   Consider what has taken place in some locales in this country…police and firefighters are afraid to go to the aid of the caller because it might be an ambush.   In Europe they are even more involved than we are because they have entire neighborhoods that are off-limits to “infidels”.   We are only a few years behind Europe, believe me, and we’re gaining fast.   When law and order go out the window, do you want to know what comes in?  Anarchy, that’s what comes in…fighting in the streets, and neighborhoods being carved up and placed under the protection of the local strongman.
When you listen or watch the news you won’t hear a lot of this stuff because they have a vested interest in keeping it from you.  Until the news is so bad that they just cannot avoid saying something, and that will be couched in the softest of terms, you will think everything is just hunky-dory.   There is dirty work afoot in this country and the sooner the population understands what is happening, the better off they will be.  Forewarned is forearmed, as the saying goes.   As far back as 2006, an author was writing about how he thought the world was going…and re-reading that book today it amazes me to see just how accurate his thinking was.   George Orwell, when he wrote 1984, had no idea how close he was coming to the truth of things.  Since he died in 1950, his book has been examined and re-examined to check on his predictions…which are becoming realities at a dizzying pace.   There are always visionaries among us…Thomas Jefferson was one of the greats and both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution are testaments to that vision.
This quote, by Winston Churchill, was during World War Two, but it could easily apply to the United States now.  “We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”
C’mon America, wake up…your country needs you…desperately.

“What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace.”― John Wesley.   In that short sentence it is possible to understand the potential surrender of the United States, to some as-yet unnamed enemy.   Between a feckless government spanning several generations, and the relatively new thing called political correctness, one can trace the downward spiral of imagination, power, and moral fortitude that the United States used to have.   My parents brought me up in The Great Depression, and so my values are different from my children’s.   Their generation was brought up on Dr. Spock and his theories…many of which have proven to have been more harmful than good.   Perhaps their values are better than mine, I don’t know…I just know that they are different.   Recalling that first sentence, and if you will look around with an objective pair of eyes, don’t you see that America has changed?
Politics is supposed to be the business of running governments…but it has morphed into something completely different.  Now it is the home of men and women who’ve made a career out of not working at something we can recognize as a job.   Originally members of the United States Congress were supposed to go to Washington, do their job and when their term was over, return back to their own community and take up their lives where they left off.   Somewhere along the way all that changed.   We have people in Congress that are celebrating thirty and forty years in their seats.   They’ve established a fiefdom and rule over it as a king might have in the olden days.   Term limits, which have been in place for years in the office of the President, should be equally applicable for members of Congress as well.  No one needs to have a vested interest in remaining in Congress…that only makes the gap between one side and the other wider.
As millennia go, what happened in Germany in the 1930’s was just an eye-blink back.  A prominent German journalist, Heinrich Heine had this to say, "Wherever they burn books, in the end will also burn human beings.", and he was eighty years ahead of his time when he said it.   Anyone who lived through World War 2, as I did, knows about the burning of books…and people.   That was Germany then, and Europe now, as the Muslim hordes invade the continent.   Charles Martel, “the Hammer”, stopped the Muslim invasion at the battle of Tours in 732, but now, in modern times the barbarians are not stopping at Tours …they are planning to take over Europe and, from the looks of things, they are going to succeed by about 2030.   When your population ages, and there isn’t enough of a replacement population to keep things going, another population is going to come in and take over.   That’s is what happened, and continues to happen, in Europe.  The native Europeans were simply not having enough children to keep going…so they brought in, or allowed in, thousands of Muslims.   Demographics show that Muslims breed four to five times more children than do the host countries.
In the legal dictionary this is what it says about a subpoena: “A subpoena is an order directed to an individual commanding him to appear in court on a certain day to testify or produce documents in a pending lawsuit. The power to subpoena a person is granted officers of the court, such as clerks of courts, attorneys and judges. A person may be subpoenaed to appear in court or any designated location to provide testimony for trial or deposition or produce documents or other evidence. A subpoena which requests items be brought with the person is called a "subpoena duces tecum".   Now, having that definition, wouldn’t you think that ignoring a subpoena would bring an arrest, and place the person in jail?   How is it then, that government people get called to testify and simply refuse or ignore the subpoena?   Are they, somehow, above the law that you and I must follow?   While we’re on the subject of appearing somewhere to testify, it seems to me that we have an awful lot of “hearings” and very few “doings”.   When a decision is reached in a hearing, why isn’t it carried out promptly?   Why do we need hearings on hearings, when guilt or innocence has already been established?   Congress is just too committee-minded and not enough action-oriented for my taste.
Back in June, the Senate blocked a $1.1 billion bill to combat the Zika virus, and a Florida senator said that would cause hardships in the state.   The bill, if it had become law, would have cut $750 million from other health programs to fund anti-Zika efforts. The bill also would have cut $543 million in unused funds from the implementation of Obamacare, $107 million from leftover funds used to fight Ebola, and $100 million in administrative funds from the Health and Human Services Department.   To my way of thinking, if you have a plan to fight a disease, and you can save money by cutting waste from other programs, why would you not do that?   The Democrats said that Republicans had inserted a provision cutting financing from the Affordable Care Act,  and that they had stripped a House provision that would ban the flying of the Confederate battle flag in federal cemeteries.   Tell me how you connect the Zika virus with the Confederate flag?

The only balls that Hussein Obama has are golf balls and he plays with them way too much.
In my library are books written before and during the Obama administration.  The “before” books go all the way back to the 1930’s when H. G. Wells wrote his theory of “things to come” and, sadly, a lot of what he thought then has come to pass.   1949 saw the publication of George Orwell’s “1984” and his view of the world was even more devastating…and now is coming true.   The books that cover the administration of Obama are no less revealing and no less frightening either.  Re-reading some of these makes me wonder about how some people could know so much and never get the public to understand that we are self-destructing.   I recently read “America Alone” by Mark Steyn and was unpleasantly surprised to find out that in 2006 he was so accurate, based on current events.
It seems to me that there used to be a position held by state officials and it was about looting during a riot, or natural disaster.  In short it was “if you loot, we shoot” and that has gone by the boards apparently.   Why should the public be subjected to thievery following a riot or natural disaster, when popping one or two looters would put an end to that sort of thing?   Unless there is a federal law against it, and if I was the governor of a state, that would be the first rule to follow.   Put the police out there in riot gear with instructions to shoot anyone with a weapon and who does not comply with a request to put the weapon down…and a weapon is not just a firearm.  A weapon is a brick, a rock, a baseball bat, a knive, an axe…anything.   Anyone in the street, with a weapon and who does not comply with the request to put it down and put their hands on their head is a potential attacker…and the police do not need to be shy when it comes to saving their own life.
On October 24, 2014, Hillary Clinton gave a speech on behalf of Martha Coakley, who was running for Governor of Massachusetts at the time.  In the speech she said, "Don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, it's corporations and businesses that create jobs."   Clinton herself later said she "shorthanded" her comments.   Now folks, remember, this is the same person that “short-circuited” her remarks in 2016.   Hillary Clinton attempted to clarify recent misleading statements about her use of a private email server at the State Department, saying she "may have short-circuited" her answers about it.  It seems to me that Mrs. Clinton makes a lot of wrong answers and then has to back-track on them, because it’s for sure she won’t stand behind them.
While we’re on the subject of the Clinton Clan, how’s this for an eye-opener… Recently in The Political Insider it was said that Chelsea Clinton may not be the biological daughter of Bill and Hillary.  Another skeleton in Hillary’s closet is coming back to haunt her… It appears Chelsea Clinton’s real father is Webster Hubbell, the former Mayor of Little Rock, Arkansas. Hubbell was a law partner at Rose Law Firm with Hillary, and became one of the most important Clinton-insiders.   Then-Governor Clinton appointed Hubbell as Chief Justice of the Arkansas State Supreme Court, but 10 years later he resigned before pleading guilty to federal mail fraud and tax evasion for overbilling clients. Hubbell served 15 months in prison.   The New Yorker reported on rumors that Hillary Clinton’s affair was first noticed in 1984 at the Governor’s Mansion during Bill’s second term, but had started long before.  
Apparently, Bill Clinton is infertile. This raises serious character questions about Hillary Clinton… If she was elected, this type of sex scandal could open her up to blackmail.   Robert Morrow claimed:     “His exact words were, ‘I shoot blanks.’ Stunned by what I’d just heard, I asked him, ‘Then what about Chelsea?’ And he said, ‘Oh, Webb (Hubbell) sired her.’”   As the National Enquirer reported (the same tabloid which broke the John Edwards sex scandal), the accusation was being made by former Clinton aide Larry Nichols.       “According to well-respected author Edward Klein’s (2005) book, The Truth about Hillary, Bill discovered his wife was pregnant by reading it in the ‘Arkansas Gazette.’”   “It’s unfortunate, sad really, that Chelsea has no real relationship with Hubbell – who I believe to be her real biological father – when he’s alive and kicking and living in North Carolina.
“But it could be she’s in denial, despite overwhelming proof that Webb is her real dad.”   “Whatever Chelsea does or doesn’t know about her paternity, I’m sure she considers Bill her real dad — despite there being no blood ties,” Nichols said. “I saw firsthand what a doting, loving father he was to his little girl.   “He always treated her as if she was his own – which in his heart, I believe she’s always been – from day one.”   And, as an update, the National Enquirer attempted a DNA test and Hubble was NOT excluded as the possible father:  The ENQUIRER approached Webb, 67, at a book signing in Durham, N.C., on July 18, 2014. He was promoting his political thriller ironically titled, “When Men Betray.”       Webb arrived to a crowd of about 10 people in attendance – including an ENQUIRER reporter posing as a fan.  
         Our reporter presented a brand new Sharpie pen and a pristine copy of the book. Webb signed his name in the book – and even agreed to place both the book and the Sharpie pen in a protective bag.       “Webb was more than accommodating. He just thought I was some kind of super fan,” said the reporter, who also retrieved a large Starbucks drink that Webb had been drinking from – which was later tested for additional saliva and DNA!     Chelsea’s DNA was much more difficult to acquire. As a former First Daughter, she’s constantly guarded by Secret Service agents or an entourage from her dad’s Clinton Foundation – where she serves as Vice Chairwoman.     On April 9, however, The ENQUIRER was there as Chelsea spoke about public health initiatives at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston.
       The undercover ENQUIRER reporter posed as a high school student visiting Harvard on a college tour. As Chelsea exited the auditorium, the teenager followed with a new Sharpie and a clean copy of Hillary’s authorized biography, “Living History.”    “Chelsea, I admire you so much! Can you sign your mother’s book for me?” the teen gushed.       Eager to please, Chelsea signed the book for the teenager – who quickly returned it, along with the Sharpie pen tucked inside, to an ENQUIRER reporter.    The samples were taken to a genetics lab in the Southeastern United States – which agreed to do the testing on the agreement that The ENQUIRER not publish its name.    The forensic examination of the samples could not disprove that Webb was Chelsea’s father – with the official result being “inconclusive.”
               In a surprise move, the entire police force of Green Mountain Falls, Colorado,  resigned, and this prompted the Mayor Jane Newberry to suggest that the 700 residents of the town “all look out for each other.”   In years past, Colorado was a big part of what we now call the wild, wild west…but it has certainly undergone a huge change.   The skiing crowd, and they’re probably mostly Democrat, have transformed the state from a place where people were rugged individualists to politically correct wusses.   With no police force to protect them they’ll probably have to depend on county or state law enforcement agencies…and who knows how long it might take for them to get to where a crime is being committed?   Coloradans, listen up…you have a heritage of cowboys, so get back to your roots and start carrying a sidearm.   When seconds count, the police are going to be minutes away…you can make a choice to live or die…and a weapon will help you make that decision.
               There are volumes that have been written about demographics, literally hundreds of them.   They give all sorts of statistics as to what is happening and what is going to happen.  Yes, I know that statistics can lie, but there is one fact that emerges from all the numbers, and that is that in an area or a country where Islam is dominant, birthrates are four to six times higher than the surrounding area or country.   Europe, which will soon be Eurabia, is a good example of this.   Europeans are aging and the replacement younger generation does not wish to remain in a country where they will be used to support the elders…so they will leave for greener pastures, so to speak.   The gap that is left by these young Europeans is being filled by young Eurabians.   These are people born into a European country, but whose heart and soul belong to Islam.   There is no denying this fact when the demographics are looked at with an objective eye.   Europeans are reproducing at about 1.3 babies per woman, whereas the Muslim birthrate is about 4 to 6 times that amount.   This phenomenon is not confined to Europe, as you might hope, but even here in the United States, we are seeing this, albeit in smaller numbers.   It just will take one or two more generations here, than it has been taking in Europe.   
               Now, a parting shot.   It’s been reported that Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau wants to legalize recreational marijuana.  Maybe it’s because he admitted that he smoked it several times, and it could also draw Americans across the border, that he favors the legalization.  Who knows?

These are some excerpts from The primordial world of Islam, By  Alexander Maistrovoy,   June 1, 2016 writing in the Canada Free Press.
The involution of Islam is just one side of the coin. The other one, which is not less horrifying, is the spiritual degradation of the West that welcomes the primordial predatory world with cute teddy bears, songs about peace and flowers. The Islamic world of the Middle East is sinking into the gloomy and forgotten past: the Bronze Age, the world of slavery, human sacrifice, pedophilia, sexual sacred traditions, beliefs in conspiracies and now the most terrible - ritual cannibalism and the systematic elimination of dogs.   Why? He could not give a clear answer.   Because dogs, according to Islam, are “unclean animals”.   Dogs are not the only victims of “Palestinian frustration.   Donkeys are subject to regular abuse by Palestinian teenagers; “fighters against occupants” use them as “shahids” tying explosives to them and sending them to Israelis. There is another kind of entertainment: they paint a donkey in the colors of the Israeli flag, torture it, burn out the Star of David on it, pour over gasoline and set it on fire.
I began my journey into the jungle of the Muslim world in the Middle East - the perverted and cruel world, full of anomalies and pathologies, irrational anger and countless superstitions. It is a world where a woman, a child, a person with sexual and psychological aberrations are doomed to the fate of the miserable dog or donkey. It is a world of jinns, spirits, beliefs in conspiracies, legalized pedophilia and actual slavery, “codes of honor” and boundless fanaticism, clans structures, arrogant and suspicious attitude towards the outside world. It is a world that brings us back to the prehistory of mankind.   There is no logical reasoning for this behavior except that it comes from Mohammed and since his word is perfect, there can be no argument with it.
Mankind, throughout its very existence, desperately tried to set itself free from firm grips of dark primal instincts, from the viscous swamp of irrational primitive nature. It was a difficult task, but gains were significant.   Moral and spiritual ideals of the prophetic Judaism became the basis of the ethical value system of the Western world. The Greco-Roman philosophy of the late antiquity broke away from primitive beliefs and practices, having created unique and unrivalled systems, such as Stoicism and Epicureanism, Neo-Platonism and Gnosticism. Christianity, having passed through the hearth of tests and pride, returned to its roots and became one of the ways to spiritual salvation and social justice. Buddhism is a religion of consolation, elevation and rejection of carnal beginning.
The pagans readily abandoned primitive cults, too under the influence of highly developed civilizations. Hindus didn’t cling to the grim rituals of widows’ self-immolation (Sati) and Thuggee sects. Christian people of Africa and Siberia got rid of abominable superstitions quite easily. Descendants of the Aztecs and Inca in Mexico and Peru don’t protect their “sacred right” to human sacrifice, and Maori and Polynesians - to the ritual cannibalism.
Muslim nations on the periphery of the Islamic world, like Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Azerbaijanis, Indian Muslims or Hui people in China, are not prone to religious fanaticism and the practice of slave societies. On one hand, they see themselves as heirs of cultures that are more ancient than Islam. In Uzbekistan, historical handbooks and guidebooks remind you about the ancient kingdoms of Bactria and Sogdiana. The Kazakhs are proud of their kinship with the Cumans Empire. In Azerbaijan, they show ancient temples of Zoroastrians to tourists.
On the other hand, Christianity, the great cultures of India and China, and in our time—the secular Soviet ideology softened archaic beliefs and prejudices of Islam.    Today, Sufi orders and the Baha’i communities with their center in Haifa flourish only on the outskirts of the Islamic world, in Central Asia, Azerbaijan, India and Africa. Also this is the only place (and only in Israel in the all Middle East) where the truly humanistic Islam movement - Ahmadiyya Muslim Community - is not subject to severe persecutions.   And only in the Middle East, in the realm of its absolute power, the Muslim world made its journey just the opposite. It not only returned human beings to the animal state, but asserted this at the level of the religious law and traditions.
Islam has been withdrawing into itself more and more, sinking into the quagmire of petty disputes, prohibitions, absurd dogmas and narcissism. All movements of the modern Islam - from the “Muslim Brotherhood”, “Hizb ut-Tahrir” and Wahhabi / Salafi to the Taliban, Shiite dogmatists in Iran, “Al-Qaeda” and “Islamic State”—are moving deeper and deeper into the dark tunnel of pre-Islamic prejudices, gloomy rituals, primordial instincts and pathological fanaticism.   Modern Islam is characterized by all features of slave-owning, archaic communities.
“World of Crescent” is the only place on the planet where slavery flourished legally for centuries and continues to thrive in a disguised form in our time.   Formally, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE and Yemen abolished slavery in the 60s, but informally actively practiced it in relation to foreign workers (Indians, Filipinos, Ceylonese, Thais, etc). All of them have sponsorship laws (kafeel), which de-facto represent contemporary slavery. “Sponsors” have absolute power over labor migrants. They can deprive them of rights of residence, confiscate documents, pay no salaries, ban them from leaving the country and even their houses on the pretext that the workers might try to “escape”. They can kill and rape them with impunity.
Ownership of black slaves is a special matter. The religious justification of this slavery in Islam is rooted in Biblical interpretation, according to which Africans are sons of Ham who committed an unpardonable sin against his father Noah, and therefore they are doomed to be slaves of descendants of Shem, i.e. the Arabs. So Negros, whose ancestors were brought by Arabs from Africa to the area of Basra as slaves in the earliest days of Islam, remain slaves of Arabic sheikhs even now. They are called Abd (“slave”).   In Mauritania, slavery was abolished in the early 80s. But until now the whole population in this country is actually divided into castes: lighter-skinned “Moors” - slaveholders, “Black Berbers” or “Haratin”—their subjects, and Negros - the lower class. Slavery is hereditary, and children of slaves remain the property of their owners. The number of slaves in the country is estimated to be up to 600,000 men, women and children, or 20% of the population, though officially the use of the word “slave” in the media is forbidden. In many cases slaves have a certain place in the house, like animals.
In Sudan slavery is thriving. Entire villages are being demolished; men, women and children are being enslaved. In the 90s, the number of enslaved descendants of Ham was estimated to be 100 to 200 thousands.   In Niger slavery is a norm. There are almost a million of slaves there.   ISIS and its branches in Libya and Nigeria officially revived the institution of slavery in its most heinous and barbarous form, but slavery is deeply rooted in the collective consciousness of the Middle East world and is practiced actively.
A death on the battlefield was considered as honor for a warrior in previous times, because such death opened the way to heaven. The early version of the “Jihad” was no exception: men fought against equal rivals in a fair fight, but by no means against children, women and unarmed men.   The current concept of “Jihad” is much closer to the primitive human sacrifice. The purpose of the ancient cult of sacrifice was to appease the angry and bloodthirsty Deity. For the sacramental ceremony they selected predominantly children, juveniles and girls of their own tribe as the embodiment of naivety and virginity. Sacrifice represented a horrifying theatrical performance. The sacral victims that voluntarily sacrificed themselves went to paradise where they could enjoy carnal pleasures. People from another tribe were slain like cattle.
The same idiocy we can see in the current interpretation of “Jihad”. For the role of “martyrs” they choose children and adolescents that are too young to realize they are going to the slaughter. They believe that by killing themselves they make their way to heaven - to the embrace of 72 virgins. (What else can a man of the Bronze Age dream about?) On the other side, slashing of people from another tribe chosen randomly, especially women and children, shall delight the cruel Deity and make his enemies tremble from horror.   Finally, the terror of “shahids” is of a public, theatrical and ultimately horrifying nature - with torn bodies, severed limbs, blood flows. This is a typical murderous mystery practiced by ancient people - from Mesopotamia, Syria, and Phoenicia to South America.
In the Age of Bronze, the place of woman in the social hierarchy was a little higher than the place of livestock. She had three standard roles: a prey—when speaking about women from another tribe; a slave - for her owner, and a procreation machine; and finally a “currency” - to conclude bargains, tribal and dynastic alliances. Her freedom of choice was similar to the freedom of choice of a horse or a camel.   Islam returned to woman “her” place in the social hierarchy. In the Middle East she can’t leave the house unaccompanied by her husband, father or brother; she can’t work; she loses her son in the case of a divorce; she is subject to beating and humiliation, if she doesn’t satisfy her husband.     slam legalizes beating of women and advises how to keep her on a tight rein like a horse. Sheikh Muhammad Kamal Mustafa, the author of the book ‘The Woman in Islam’ asserted that “It is forbidden to beat her on the sensitive parts of her body, such as the face, breast, abdomen, and head. Instead, she should be beaten on the arms and legs”.
Sheikh Yousef Qaradhawi, one of the most influential clerics in Sunni Islam: “It is permissible for him to beat her lightly with his hands, avoiding her face and other sensitive parts. In no case should he resort to using a stick or any other instrument that might cause pain and injury”.   In February 2016 Mufti of Gaza Hassan Al-Laham prescribed: “This hitting is a kind of reminder that the love and friendship that Allah commanded, is still found between the couple.” Wonderful, isn’t it? What was the reaction of feminists? It was the arrangement of the women “Peace flotilla” to Gaza.
Female genital mutilations deprive women of their sensuality and turn them into primitive machines for procreation, to insensible dolls.   Any suspicion of adultery leads to their murdering by the family: they can pour acid over them, disfigure them or push them under a truck. The same fate threatens them if they become a victim of a rape. They get married by the decision of the family without their consent.   Primitive tribes considered women of conquered people to be their natural prey. Non-Muslim women today share the same fate.   Long before the ISIS, in 1948, the Arabs set forth to conquer Israel dreaming of killing men and raping women. In Lebanon, Palestinians raped Christian women in Lebanon and thereby provoked the civil war. Secular regimes restrained sexual lusts of Muslims against females of “infidels.” As soon as they broke, Christian women turned into the object of sexual harassment.
On the 10th of April, 2013 Salafi cleric Sheikh Yasir al-‚ÄòAjlawni announced a fatwa that permits men to rape non-Sunni women in Syria, if they are not Sunni of course. In Egypt, in February 2013, Ahmad Mahmoud Abdullah, known as “Abu Islam”, justified raping of women in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Raping of girls of Coptic community in Egypt became commonplace in the time of the Mursi ruling. Recently Muslims burned down Christian homes in southern Egypt and forced a 70-year-old Coptic woman to walk naked through the streets.   Non-Muslim women are whores for a Muslim man, especially if they walk alone and wear short skirts—as in Cologne, London, Stockholm or anywhere else.
Primitive people endowed the phallus with a sacred value, and considered the act of copulation as a demonstration of the male power and authority—in relation not only to a woman, but also to a defeated opponent.   The symbolism of sexual possession is well pronounced among aboriginal peoples and monkeys. Konrad Lorenz described the scene in the Berlin zoo.

“In the Berlin Zoo, I once watched two strong, old male Hamadryas Baboons assaulting each other in real earnest for a minute. A moment later, one of them fled, hotly pursued by the other, who finally chased him into a corner. Unable to escape, the loser took refuge in the submissive gesture, whereupon the winner turned away and walked oft, stiff-legged, in an attitude of self-display. Upon this, the loser ran after him and presented his hindquarters so persistently that the stronger one eventually “acknowledged” his submissiveness by mounting him with a bored expression and performing a few perfunctory copulatory movements. Only then was the submissive one apparently satisfied that his rebellion had been forgiven”.   Rudiments of this culture remained in marginal societies, for example, in prisons.
In the Middle East, a sexual act as a personification of power over a defeated rival became the norm.   Lawrence of Arabia was a victim of such barbaric tradition. Iranian dissidents, Chris Stevens and Gaddafi faced an even more frightful fate: they were raped and murdered. This barbarity brings us back to the times that mankind hasn’t known since the appearance of the great religions.   This disgusting phenomenon was inherent to all people in all times, but only Islam legalized it. Things that were considered to be shameful in Judaism, Christianity and in the secular culture, became the norm in the Middle East. Raymond Ibrahim cites Dr. Saleh bin Fawzan, a prominent cleric and member of Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council.
Bin Fawzan just issued a fatwa asserting that there is no minimum age for marriage, and that girls can be married “even if they are in the cradle.”   Fawzan insists that nowhere does Sharia set an age limit for marrying girls: like countless Muslim scholars before him, he relies on Koran 65:4, which discusses marriage to females who have not yet begun menstruating (i.e., are prepubescent) and the fact that Muhammad, Islam’s role model, married Aisha when she was 6-years-old, “consummating” the marriage—or, in modern parlance, raping her—when she was 9.   Ibrahim gives examples of girls who died as a result of such “child-marriage”, pointing out that leading Islamic authorities, such as Yusuf Qaradawi, took young girls as wives.   According to THE INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON WOMEN, in 2005 there were 51 million child marriages and almost all of them - in Muslim countries.
Ayatollah Khomeini wrote: “A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby”.
Bestiality? Why not? Ayatollah Khomeini: “A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village, however selling the meat to the next door village should be fine.” (From Khomeini’s book, Tahrir al-Vasyleh, fourth volume, Darol Elm, Gom, Iran, 1990).   In May 2010 in Gaza, 450 Hamas men married girls that were younger than 10 years old.   Feminists? Oh, yes, we forgot—they are busy arranging the “Flotilla of peace” to Gaza.
Animals feel irrational hatred to any aberration within their own species. In my childhood I saw a flock of sparrows that attacked a sick bird - they were trying to peck it to death. The miserable sparrow managed to escape having flown into the window of some house.   Civilization has moved beyond this disgusting prejudice, but those unlucky fellows who were born crippled in the Middle East have no way to escape.   This is a “black hole” of the Islamic world, and what we know is just the tip of the iceberg. Last December, the Palestinian agency Maan wrote that in the South of Hebron they found a mentally ill man, who had spent 25 years on the chain in a sheepfold. His family chained him up when he was 10 years old, and he ate together with sheep and chickens. In February 2016, Maan wrote about a mentally ill person in Bethlehem. He was handcuffed, chained up in a shed without ventilation and heating and was fed from a bowl like an animal.   The reason of such attitude is primordial fear. According to Islamic belief, a mentally ill person is in the grip of the jinn and possessed with evil.
Let alone homosexuals—this is commonplace. They are hanged on cranes, as in Iran, and thrown from roofs of buildings. LGBT-community, “Doctors Without Borders”, “Christians for Human right”, “Rabies for Human right”? Of course, they are fully focused on the fight against Gaza blockade!
Like primitive cultures, Islam of the Middle East rejects any and all manifestations of civilization, even if it’s a dead civilization.   It’s the only culture that fights against antiquities: Buddhist temples in Afghanistan, Palmyra, Tuareg sanctuary. It destroys anyone who belongs to other religions, whether Yazidis, Christians, Zoroastrians and Bahá’ís.
They live in the permanent atmosphere of paranoia. Their own troubles they justify with theories of conspiracies, but not with their own miscalculations. They believe in “Sharks of Mossad”, as the governor of South Sinai, Mohammad Abdul Fadhil Shousha: in “Israeli wild boars” that destroy agricultural fields in the West Bank, as it was claimed by President Mahmoud Abbas; in “Israeli wild hyenas” that were released by Israeli settlers in the West Bank to frighten Palestinian people (by the way, Palestinian people triumphed “Zionist” hyena: in 2015 they cornered and stoned the miserable animal to death in Hebron); in “supernatural rats”, as it was published in July 2008 by the official Palestinian news agency Wafa to cause panic in East Jerusalem.  
“The Jews have the greatest powers of sorcery, and they make use of this tool”, claimed Mehdi Taeb, a friend of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the head of Khamenei’s Ammar Base think tank. Not so bad for “think tank” thinking, eh?   They are sure that the ISIS is the result of a conspiracy of CIA and Mossad, that Coca-Cola and Pepsi contain pork and alcohol to poison Muslims.   Do you know the case of natural cataclysms? Mallam Abass Mahmud, a Muslim cleric in Ghana, explains: “Allah gets annoyed when males engage in sexual encounters and such disgusting encounter causes earthquake.”
Like in primitive cultures, there is no hint of self-criticism. India, China, Asian and Christian countries in Africa forgot about colonialism, although they experienced plenty of grief and humiliation. The Middle East was a mandated territory for 20 years only, in the period between the world wars, but Arabs still blame the West for all their of miseries. The civilization that was great at some point, has now slipped to primordial culture, but apparently it is not the lowest point of their fall.   In May 2013, the world witnessed something horrifying: Abu Sakkar, the leader of “Al-Farooq” group (now a part of “Jabhat al-Nusra”), carved the heart of Assad’s dead soldier out and ate the human flesh. Comrades supported him yelling “Allah Akbar”. It was not a single incident. In November 2013, Theodore Shoebat wrote, quoting Arabian news source Zaman al-Wasal and Orient News Television, that Kuru disease caused by cannibalism only had been spreading in Syria. According to Michigan State University, in 2014 only there were about 8 to 10 cases of Kuru registered in Syria. It was written, “Kuru re-emerged in the Muslim community recently among Syrian rebels, who reportedly used to eat the hearts of victims. Two of these rebels were then hospitalized and transferred to Germany to be treated for the disease, which signified the emergence of the disease in Syria”.
It’s a ritual cannibalism, a terrible relic of the primeval world. Oh, what a lovely cultural diversity!   The involution of Islam is just one side of the coin. The other one, which is not less horrifying, is the spiritual degradation of the West that welcomes the primordial predatory world with cute teddy bears, songs about peace and flowers. Anti-Utopia has come true.
