Dr. Andrew Bostom on John Quincy Adams On Islam, cont.

It suddenly occurred to me while reading over the original entry under this title that I had inadvertently ommitted a passage from Dr. Bostom's article which I had intended to include in the body of the post. Alas, no harm done, I'll just put it here:

Adams writes:

...The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force... (emphasis mine)

Bottom line? John Quincy Adams not only knew jihad, he knew Islam and what it requires of its followers, at all times, under all circumstances, everywhere. Not what it admonishes them to do, but what it requires of them, perpetual warfare on all infidels, meaning all non-Muslims. It only makes provision for appeasing the victors over it on a false and delusive promise of peace whereby the faithful follower of the prophet may submit to the necessities of defeat only while the obligatory command to propagate the Muslim creed by sword cannot be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed by two methods, fraud or force, otherwise known respectively as taqiyya and jihad. But the command of the prophet being always obligatory on Muslims, one or the other of these methods (whichever necessity or opportunity dictate) must always be employed in the unceasing struggle to conquer the world for Islam.

Let us hear the conclusion of the matter:

The only way for us to protect ourselves against the designs of the Muslims is to begin to discuss and ultimately implement a plan of action specifically designed to frustrate and overthrow their designs. Indeed, a plan designed to frustrate and overthrow not only the designs of the Muslims on us, but a plan that ultimately eliminates any avenue and means we've provided them to invent, plan, develop, and carry out their designs on us. In other words, separationism, or something comparable to it.

You've gone and done it. Spoke the truth.

People will tell themselves anything - anything - so long as it deftly avoids uncomfortable facts of reality.

I wonder if JQA would be called a "racist" "Islamophobe" etc. if he were alive today. Well, I don't really wonder. JQA is generally regarded as one of the smartest and most accomplished men to hold that office. He obviously read their book.

Anyway, great post.
