Two of the greater minds around today Jamie Glazov and Daniel Greenfield get together on The Glazov Gang….an interview with Daniel Greenfield – “The Real Meaning of ‘Allahu Akbar'”. Here’s a taste of Mr. Greenfield’s superb insight……………
“Allahu Akbar is translated as God is Great to render it more acceptable to readers. But like so many Islamic translations, it’s right enough to be wrong. Allahu Akbar doesn’t mean Allah is Great, in a “Isn’t ‘Allah and the Virgins of Paradise’ a great band”. It’s more like Allah is Greatest or Superior. And if you’re on the right side of the cockpit door, the one doing the shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ means that Allah is superior to your country and to you. And one of his followers is about to do his best to show you why.”
……….”Islam is that utter submission. A frustrated act of individual suicide that in the case of a suicide bomber involves actual death. But by dying, he proves himself immortal in the collective. When Muslims boast that they don’t fear death, and even demonstrate it by committing suicide, what they are really doing is embracing a collective existence, by rejecting individualism they shout their omnipotence. The individual killing himself to become immortal is one of the perverse paradoxes of tyranny. And it lies at the heart of Islam.”
Daniel tells us that unlike in Christianity and Judaism where martyrdom means death and suffering thru their faith, for their faith, all the while keeping their faith, but in Islam the martyrs are the killers. Islamic martyrdom isn’t dying for your faith, it’s killing for your faith. That it isn’t about faith but about power, about supremacy, colonialism, conquest and imperialism. We are experiencing a religion disguised as a power philosophy that’s advancing its philosophy at our expense.
