The New Heartland

Islamists all strive for world hegemony through political control over Islamdom. While it is true that Islamists hold significant power in Pakistan and Turkey, they are not in full control over those nations, neither of which is a theocracy. Iran is a different matter though as Tehran is a great power under full Islamist controlContinue reading “The New Heartland”

On Islamization in Europe

What is the essence of Islamization? Islamization is essentially a political phenomenon. In Europe Islamization operates under the guise of freedom of religion despite being the very antithesis of freedom of religion in constituting religious coercion. Islamization operates through social peer pressure whereby human beings are coerced into religious observance. A coercive religious environment givesContinue reading “On Islamization in Europe”

Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy

Ayatollah Khomeini introduced a governing principle according to which Iranian national interests take precedence over sharia. This may seem surprising for an Islamist theocratic regime but can be observed in Iranian foreign policy for various parts of the world. Iran is completely silent on China’s Han colonization of Xinjiang and totalitarian policies of coerced assimilationContinue reading “Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy”

It’s not About the Money

Israeli officials are somewhat hysterical in anticipation of a nuclear agreement materializing in Vienna. This of course is profoundly understandable since the JCPOA and an even worse hypothetical follow-up agreement are disastrous for Israeli security and are completely worthless as an insurance for Israeli survival. The question is however whether there will be an agreementContinue reading “It’s not About the Money”

Islamization vs. Freedom of Religion

Islamization is the creation of a religiously coercive environment where there is no freedom of religion. This is similar to how religion is informally coerced on all Jews living in Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) cities and neighborhoods in Israel. While religious enclaves must be tolerated under freedom of religion, Islamization certainly is not legitimate when it isContinue reading “Islamization vs. Freedom of Religion”

The Orthodox Conversion Dispute

Why does Rabbinic Judaism tend to be reluctant to receive converts? The Jews have always been a nation that welcomes newcomers, however Rabbinic Judaism does not missionize and Orthodox Judaism typically demands a prolonged waiting period to show sustained ritual observance before someone is converted, in the Diaspora typically three years. What is the historicalContinue reading “The Orthodox Conversion Dispute”

The Islamist Nexus

Is there an emerging transdenominational Islamist nexus in the Middle East? There are significant tactical differences between different Islamist movements and Sunni Islamists and Shia Islamists disagree as to whether Sunnis of Shias should rule the worldwide Islamist theocracy that they believe is inevitable due to ostensibly being divinely decreed. Iran and Turkey have closeContinue reading “The Islamist Nexus”

The Jewish People should Declare War on the Muslim Brotherhood

The ongoing surge in Anti-Zionism in the United States is fomented by an alliance of leftwingers with the Muslim Brotherhood which is an international intelligence agency whose agents are trained at deceiving and politically defrauding its “partners” and other victims. What do the Muslim Brotherhood which seeks to introduce sharia law as state law, includingContinue reading “The Jewish People should Declare War on the Muslim Brotherhood”

A No-Fly Zone over Iran is a Gargantuan Undertaking

The establishment of a no-fly zone over Iran will allow for intermittent attacks against Iranian nuclear facilities so as to prevent the Iranian nuclear weapons program from ever recovering after having been destroyed by the IAF (Israeli Air Force). A no-fly zone will furthermore provide air support to armed rebellions against the Khomeinist regime. ThereContinue reading “A No-Fly Zone over Iran is a Gargantuan Undertaking”

Erdogan Threatens Chaos

Turkey’s dictator Erdogan threatens chaos if he and the ruling AK party lose the 2023 presidential and parliamentary elections. Of course he claims that his political opponents for some unexplained reason will cause chaos after winning the elections. This reveals and confirms that Erdogan plans to destabilize Turkey if he and the AKP lose theContinue reading “Erdogan Threatens Chaos”

The Schism in Orthodox Judaism

There is an increasing schism in Orthodox Judaism and a trend by Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) rabbis not to recognize conversions performed by many Modern Orthodox rabbis. This is already full-blown in Israel where Haredi rabbis refuse to recognize conversions performed by the Chief Rabbinate. Confusingly, the Israeli Chief Rabbinate nowadays has increasingly been dominated by HarediContinue reading “The Schism in Orthodox Judaism”

Multiculturalism goes too far when it Tolerates Totalitarianism

Respecting other cultures and living in coexistence with others are important values, yet multiculturalism certainly goes too far when it is extended to respecting totalitarianism. Many advocates of multiculturalism deem all opposition to Islamism generally to be Islamophobic and intolerant. Theocracy which Islamists advocate is not compatible with freedom of religion, surely a cornerstone ofContinue reading “Multiculturalism goes too far when it Tolerates Totalitarianism”

Theocracy is Inconsistent with Freedom of Religion

Freedom of religion is one the fundamentals of international law, yet one of the major political ideologies of our time, Islamism, does not agree with this. Freedom of religion fundamentally clashes with the very concept of theocracy and hence there is very much need for an international convention that would ban theocracy as a crimeContinue reading “Theocracy is Inconsistent with Freedom of Religion”

World Powers need to Coordinate

Time is increasingly running out as the JCPOA is effectively expiring. Will the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) take action against Iran? Will the P5+1 prepare a Plan B after the failure of the JCPOA? What about the United States? Is there any teeth to its rhetoric about Iran? Does it have a ready PlanContinue reading “World Powers need to Coordinate”

Israel’s Haredi Dilemma

Israel’s Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) population explosion poses multiple dilemmas to Israeli long-term planners. One thing that is clear is that Israeli liberal democracy will not be able to survive and in its stead there will need to be a system of liberal guided democracy. It will still be a democracy but not a liberal democracy. ThereContinue reading “Israel’s Haredi Dilemma”
