Anyone who cared to dig through the graveyards of Sudan already knew that Muslims mattered more than Africans to us. The sky full of jets that we dispatched to bomb Yugoslavia on behalf of Muslim terrorists never clouded the skies of Khartoum. But they did show up to bomb Tripoli so that Islamist thugs could begin torturing and murdering Africans.
In the left's pyramid of races, some matter more than others, and Arabs are higher than Africans. So much higher that Sudan is piled with corpses, but the mere thought of Islamist rebels losing in Libya was enough to send in the air forces of bankrupt Western countries already tied up in too many places.
The primacy of the Arab Muslim over the African Christian is a recent thing in the liberal landscape born in part of realpolitik and the red enthusiasm for revolutionary violence. It is a thing which almost no one discusses because it has gone unnoticed. The racial vocabulary of it is one that few are even able to read.
Most still process Obama as an African-American, but while his father was from Africa and he spent part of his life in America-- he is not African-American, because he is not the conjunction of the two. His heritage was Muslim, and so was his Indonesian upbringing at the hands of one of the participants in the genocide of East Timor Christians.
Obama's books studiously attempt to mimic the questions of African-American identity in a painfully literary style that reveals its artificiality. Obama's compulsive borrowing of uncredited quotes from African-American writers and poets shows that same pursuit of authenticity, which always escapes him.
Still to most Americans race comes down to skin color, not culture, and the left believes fervently in the brotherhood of all "brown people" confronting white supremacy, an absurd European leftist construct of little relevance in a continent where European colonialism was a flash in the plan, but Arab-Muslim colonialism has been a going concern for over a thousand years.
The overthrow of Khaddafi by Islamist rebels backed by Western jets is yet another victory for Muslim colonialism in Africa, which is being celebrated with massacres of Africans. Political and media elites in the West who are besotted with Muslim democracy can't see past their theories of political history in which every country ends up just like them to understand the real conflicts in the region.
Even Belgium at the heart of the EU is hardly a poster child for harmony with the Flemish and the Walloons, not to mention the Basque terrorism in Spain and the IRA in Northern Ireland as reminders that ethnic conflicts have not gone away even in Europe where there is far less at stake.
It's only 70 miles from the Italian island of Lampedusa to Tunisia, but the distance in history is far greater than the boat trip made by so many refugees. It's the difference between a continent where ethnic conflicts are primarily linguistic and political, and a continent where they are genocidal.
The Holocaust was the last zero sum ethnic conflict in Western Europe, where the political forces that had resented their loss of power in the last two centuries finally got their chance to vent their fury on the ethnic minority whose emancipation had come to represent everything they hated about the rise of the republics. But Muslim immigration is bringing the zero sum conflict back to Europe.
Terrorism, riots, murders and rapes are the traditional brutal way that ethnic conflicts play out, and the introduction of Islam to Europe, has added layers of furious Pakistanis, Algerians, Turks, Somalis and others on top of the fading ethnic conflicts of native Europeans. The fate of Northern Ireland or the linguistic perils of Belgium are likely to matter very little when the majority of children speak Urdu, and the Orange and the Green give way to the Green and the Black.
But Europe is only beginning to experience a slice of what everyday life is like in parts of Nigeria, India or Israel. And as bad as the No Go Zones of Paris, the rapes of Oslo or the mosques of Munich may seem, it's only the beginning of a road which ends in the graveyards of Sudan or the ghettos of Yemen.
North Africa was colonized long before the French got there, it remains colonized long after DeGaulle waxed his mustache and put on his best Petain act for the Muslims of Algeria. After bombing Libya, we have made it safe for the Muslim colonialists to massacre the continent's native Africans... in the name of democracy, human rights and the rest of that nonsense. Meanwhile the massacres continue in Sudan, despite all the backpatting over South Sudan, and they will continue because this is the nature of the beast.
If bombs are still going off in Northern Ireland and Spain, then why would anyone seriously expect that the lamb would lie down with the jackal in North Africa? Religious conflicts in the Islam are settled only when the winners have wiped out the losers or beaten them down so much that the losers are treated as being outside Islam and live as Dhimmis. And conflicts between Muslim colonists and the natives are fought in the same manner, except that the losers are expected to convert or live as second-class citizens in their own country.
Muslim colonialism is behind the endless conflict in Israel where the successful uprising of a minority group has turned the attention of the entire Muslim Ummah to stamping it out-- with the support of the European and American left, and the increasing sympathy of their governments. And second and third generation Israelis who still occasionally visit Auschwitz but fail to understand that this is what zero sum ethnic conflicts look like when you're the minority with no territory to stand on have accepted their portrayal as the villains for all the wrong reasons.
The Western message is that whether you're Black or Jewish-- you matter less than a Muslim does. Your life is worth less than that of a Muslim. Your political aspirations are worth less than theirs are and your national rights are infinitely inferior to theirs. This message was sent before Obama and before September 11, but it has become louder after both of those events. The illusion of parity is completely gone.
Western military intervention in Kuwait and Yugoslavia was followed by atrocities that were rarely reported on. Kuwait's ethnic cleansing and Kosovar ethnic cleansing of Christians were directly approved of by the Bush and Clinton administrations as being within the rights of the people we had fought for. Obama, a man that even most African-Americans wrongly think of as one of them, will turn a blind eye to the Libyan Arab massacres of Africans as he has all along.
President Ford and Secretary of State Kissinger encouraged and covered up the beginnings of Muslim genocide of Christians in East Timor. So did Carter and every president after him. By the time Obama appointed Dennis Blair, who had played a key role in keeping the slaughter going even on the cusp of the 21st century, as the Director of National Intelligence, and made his own Bitburg visit to Indonesia-- these latest obscenities were the continuation of an ongoing national policy that valued the national rights and lives of Muslims higher than those of their victims.
From Asia to Africa to the Middle East, the story remains the same. Muslim colonialism destroys the histories, the cultures and the lives of millions-- and the world nods sympathetically. Resistance to Muslim colonialism is harshly quashed, whether it's in Cote d'Ivoire in Africa, courtesy of the UN and the IMF, or the streets of London where the bobbies who couldn't do much about the rioters are always available to shut down protest marches that might offend Muslims.
The Ground Zero Mosque is no different than the Al-Aqsa Mosque built on top of the holiest site in Judaism, or the Babri Mosque built on top of the destroyed Hindu temple of Rama. And the attacks of September 11 were no different than the piles of butchered Africans in Sudan or the Israeli family slaughter in their own home. All of them are the bloody toll of Muslim colonialism which will keep on going until it is stopped.
Muslim colonialism will only be stopped when we confront it for what it is, the brutal spree of an ideology that claims supremacy through religion, which whines incessantly even as it butchers leaving a trail of corpses across continents, subjugated cultures, burning cars, destroyed memorials and shattered lives.
Obama insists that September 11 should be a day of community service-- and he's right. The best way to serve our community is to stand up to those who would destroy it and turn our children and grandchildren into second class citizens in their own country.
Standing up to Muslim colonialism is not done on just a single day by a single people, it is up to everyone on every single continent, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Zoroastrians, Atheists and even those Muslims who know that things have to change, to stand up in resistance. It is up to us to deny the lie that the lives of Muslims, their political aspirations and their power is worth more than ours.
It is up to us to write, to speak out, to protest and to tell the truth about over a thousand years of terror and the story of our ancestors of every religion and race who resisted them, who struck a blow against Muslim colonialism, whether it was by fighting, by teaching the next generation or by simply surviving. By continuing their resistance, we honor them and their sacrifices.
That is the best way to honor the dead, whether of September 11, or of every day in every year when our ancestors and our people have been oppressed and in many cases remain oppressed by Muslim colonialism. And it is the best way to serve our communities by protecting their future and showing that we will continue their resistance into the future. We will not give up. We will not go away. And we will not submit.
