Grand Ayatollah Obama, Islamist In Chief

  1. Thanks for re-publishing my essay, Picard. Such essays are meant to be thought provocative, so they invite debate. Debating is how thinking progresses. One also has to keep in mind that an essay of 3,000 words (roughly 3% of the length of the Qur’an) can only present some aspects of the debate, thus is intrinsically incomplete.

    The broadside against Christianism in the beginning has two main motivations: first, it is the extreme Christianism which greatly demolished the Roman civilization all by itself, which generated Islam (the cousin of the rich first wife of Muhammad was a professional Christian monk).

    Second, whenever one says anything critical of Literal Islam, one gets accused of being partial to Christianism by the Islamists. I am actually as critical of Literal Christianism (the one of 381 CE, or 600 CE in the Orient). Literal Christianism and Literal Islam are joined at the hip.

    Nowadays, Literal Christianism has vanished, but Literal Islam has been revived through fresh instrumentalization (which dates from interaction between Ibn Saud, founder of Saudi Arabia, and American oil plutocrats, in the early 1930s).

    I have many essays on my site buttressing the background context of my assertions, for example:

      Welcome to reality… that is a typical “debating” tactic of dishonest people, one I am well familliar with (I have been accused of being employed by Dassault or Saab, on occasion). As my sociology professor once pointed out, people will never accept anything, no matter how true it is, if it causes them to loose their self-esteem. And Islamists view themselves exclusively through Literal Islam, without it they have no identity. Which is kinda a problem.


      • I call this the “Anti-Idea” method (AI, like Artificial Intelligence, because it is a way to sound Artificially Intelligent). It consists into “answering” an argument by not addressing the logic at hand, but by making a meta-attack.

        It is extremely important to identify the method, as it is used everywhere. As you illustrated.

        I will try to flesh out the “Anti-Idea” method in an independent comment. (And I should make an entire essay about it; thanks for drawing my attention to it.)
