Why the West Fears Islam

role of money lenders in history was once aptly termed by many acute observers as the "Hidden Hand." It is the power
to create, lend and accumulate interest on "credit," and then re-lend that interest for further interest, in perpetuity,
that creates pervasive, worldwide debt, from the individual, to the family, to the entire state.
The ability to operate a fraudulent credit and
loan system has long been known and through all the slickness of a snake-oil salesman, the money-lenders - the same types
Jesus whipped from the Temple - have persuaded governments that banking is best left to private interests. Many wars, revolutions,
depressions, recessions, and other social upheavals, have been directly related to the determination of these money lenders
to retain and extend their power and profits"
When any state, individual or idea has threatened their scam they have often responded
with wars and revolutions. The cultural and material progress of a civilisation will often relate to the degree by which it
is free from the influence of debt and the degradation that results when the money-lenders are permitted to regain power.
shows that both World Wars, the Napoleonic wars, the American Revolution, the rise and fall of Julius Caesar, the overthrow
of Qathafi in Libya and the revolution against Tsar Nicholas, among much else relate to this "Hidden Hand" in history.
This is the key to understanding the past, present and future.)
A review of ‘A History of Central Banking and the Enslavement of Mankind’
by Stephen Mitford Goodson
Right wing nationalist groups in Britain
and throughout most of Europe have an anti-Islam agenda as their key issue. Very few understand Islam but seem content with
contemporary distortions and downright lies.
Michael Woodbridge of the London Forum tells me it is an “alien
religion” and not suitable for white Europeans or ‘Nordics’ as he calls them. Mr Woodbridge does not believe
in God and is a biological materialist who thinks “all is race”, a well-worn paraphrase from a novel by one of
Britain’s former Tory prime ministers, Benjamin Disraeli. It is taken out of context, of course. You wonder why an atheist
would be so concerned but it is atheists who are at the forefront of the anti-Muslim movement in many countries in ‘The
Then, Paul Golding of Britain First pretends to be a Christian and carries large white crosses on demonstrations.
His foul mouth and threatening behaviour is far from being Christian and he can not speak on behalf of Christians in Britain
for he is a fake Christian. Britain First’s deputy leader shouts that Allah means the Devil. In fact, Allah means God
in Arabic. Ignorance is not always bliss.
This misrepresentation continues unabated as these right wing nationalist
groups becoming more hysterical and irrational. The main theory is that we are to become the victims of ‘Islamification’,
a conspiracy theory not entirely unrelated to the trusty old International Jewish Conspiracy now condemned by the very same
right wing nationalists. For example, the octogenarian John Bean formerly of several right wing groups dating back to the
1950s, insists that anti-Semites must be removed from nationalist groups because they are just not patriotic enough. He would
like details of his past conveniently erased, especially statements in his old journal Combat
in which he published references to Jews as “maggots in the body politic”. The hypocrisy of the man leaves
one speechless. The ‘new patriotism’ now hates Islam, in place of Jews, and wants Muslims expelled and mosques
pulled down. They may not express such sentiments in their propaganda literature but new laws criminalising incitement to
religious hatred have merely tempered expression of their true thoughts. This stupid campaign against Islam, Muslims and mosques
serves only to divert our eyes from something truly evil. It is an evil that dominates a large part of the world and has enslaved
us all to an international power that controls our lives completely, in every way. This is not theory but hard reality.
Muslims, however, do
believe in a system which is opposed to the system in what is called “The West”. By opposing that system, Muslims
offer a way out of the debt slavery culture we all seem to accept as the norm. Right wing nationalists say Islam is a threat
to our way of life, a threat to British values and so on. David Cameron described ‘British values’ in terms of
liberal ideas, democracy and freedom. Those who understand the true nature of the forces that control us know this is completely
meaningless. We have neither democracy nor freedom, in any true sense. It is all illusionary.
There are no such things
as British values and our way of life has been sliding in a downward spiral of materialism, profanity, immorality and general
degeneracy. You can not tell me this ‘way of life’ is worth defending. It is not but, rather, worthy of opposing
The true nature of existence is understood by Muslims but not by non-believers. So the system prevailing
in ‘The West’ is known as the kafir system. In this centralised kafir
system, we are controlled by police states, surveillance everywhere with large corporations imposing a commercial ethic
that becomes institutionalised, standardised and regulated. At the centre of it all is an obsession with money, the circulation
and supply of which is in the exclusive control of private banking. Usury, once condemned by Christian churches, is imposed
upon any country that agrees to a loan. Upon accepting this, countries are in debt for perpetuity. It is perpetual enslavement,
Islam stands opposed to the entire kafir system. At the centre of
the Islamic system is the fact that Muslim economics is not based on the creation of debt. This is the original opposition
to usury that the Christian churches dropped in their compromise with secular liberalism.
No, Muslim economics
is the direct opposite of the system under which we languish in ‘The West’ because its central theme is one of
giving and not debt creation ... it is the voluntary sharing of wealth by the rich with the poor. It was practiced in Libya
under Colonel Gaddafi where newly-weds were given a house in which to live. No mortgages and no borrowing from private banks.
Before he was toppled and murdered, the Central Bank of Libya was independent of the Rothschild model of global banking.
In a kafir
state people are coerced into paying huge taxes with severe penalties for failing to do so. In a Muslim community, voluntary
sharing resolves all of these matters in place of heavy taxation.
The kafir makes money
from nothing by charging interest, a sin in Islam, but when interest rates become too high the paper and plastic currency
can become worthless and it is seen to be what it really is, numbers stored on a computer and completely worthless.
A Muslim community does
not rely on the accumulation of capital or heavy taxation because it believes in minimal taxation alongside voluntary giving
... and without any accumulation of capital. Gold and silver which is real money, rather than paper and plastic, are kept
circulating and moving around.
An injunction in the Holy Qur’an states
that it is the duty of a Muslim to help anyone in genuine need whatever his religion. It is taken seriously by every Muslim.
When a Muslim helps another human being there is no debt incurred. There is no payment required. He will say it is the will
In ‘The West’ we have organisations set up to relieve the poor and needy. Some are charitable
while others are connected to the state. Why should there be the poor and needy in the first place is the question that should
occur before all others. It is a sad indictment of the kafir system that allows this to
happen and we should question it.
In the Muslim community, there is a system already in place since the founding
of Islam that calls for all to help each other and to give voluntarily whenever there is genuine need. This is the real answer
The integrationists want to do away with this because it is ‘alien’ to the kufir
system. David Cameron insists on this because he wants all to adopt British values, values that do not really exist
but are mere fantasies.
When it comes down to it, it would appear that Islam is the better system. It is better
because it is based on religious beliefs that say Allah is the real reward in this life. Allah is just another word for God
and what is religiosity but the human feeling there is something greater than all of us.
This voluntary giving in place of debt
is one of the greatest achievements of the Islamic faith and one that offers an alternative to the present system in ‘The
West’. If every man and woman practiced this then we would be on the way to creating more stable societies. Of this,
I am sure.
Recently, a young relative asked me for a small loan. I replied I can not do that because you would
be in debt to me. I told him I would give him the money. It’s that easy.
