A NOTE ON RELIGION

Apparently Muslims – the word for an adherent of Islam – does not agree with the traditional, historic derivation of  the word, ‘religion’.

Traditionally, the word “religion” is defined as – “re-, back + ligare, bind, bind together” – a way of strengthening individual abilities to observe, decide and act toward the end of enhancing the greater good of all peoples.

Muslims, however, do not see it that way.

In their “religion” (termed more correctly a “religious ideology”), the use of force or violence, as a way to bind all peoples to their own way thinking and acting, is entirely acceptable, even commanded, to dominate and extinguish any point of view other than their own.

Freedom to observe the obvious, to their way of thinking, is not admired or even tolerated.

Rather, blinded by the limits of mindless obedience to the concept of killing another to ‘save them’ is promoted and even demanded.  In fact, the concept of freedom is transmuted into ‘freedom to act in any way necessary to command obedience with their “religion.”

As such, to those of the Muslim persuasion, freedom itself is an evil term, to be extinguished at all cost.

The fact that freedom and free people are fought as the enemy by beings that have become so degraded as to see themselves as animals and act accordingly, is not new. In fact, the hatred, cruelty and violence of such people toward their fellow man are well documented in other lectures and writings throughout history.

As these attributes appear to be the by-word for what the Muslim call their “religion” – ignoring this fact or pretending it doesn’t exist, could do nothing other than allow their influence to become stronger.

I also humbly offer my own writing as a maxim for use as a watchword in dealing with such peoples and groups:

“The price of freedom is never too great – when the cost of indifference is so dear.” – dwj

 

Postscript:

A group calling themselves “White Roses” created a video to inform non-Muslims about Islam. The name of this video is Three Things About Islam.

White Roses is headquartered in Sweden. This first version is in English. The name “White Roses” is based on a student resistance group “Die weiße Rose” in Nazi Germany.

The group became known for an anonymous leaflet campaign, from June 1942 until February 1943, which called for active opposition to Adolf Hitler’s regime.
