Banning Muslims Entering the USA!
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has called for barring all Muslims from entering the United States.
Trump has spoken of a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until the U.S. representatives can figure out what is going on.
Although Donald Trump’s statement is offensive to many, in reality, if it were modified a bit it would make sense. Let me explain:
Since 9/11, Islamic Radicalism has proven to the Western World that Islam is more than a religion – Islam is a political system. In light of Islamic history, traditions, and teachings, one can easily draw the conclusion that Islam is, and always will be, a government.
Mohammad, the prophet of Islam, acted as more than a prophet for the Islamic community of his time. Islam was founded by Mohammad over the course of 22 years in the Arabian Peninsula. Thus, Islam was a progressive ideology – a belief system that was shaped by Mohammad as he faced various problems and oppositions. The opposition was mainly from his own tribe – Quraish. Within this period of time, Islam developed into a socioeconomic system similar to that of communism save enhanced with a strong religious conviction. If I were to label Islam correctly, I would call it, “Communislam,” a religious belief in a god who is a communist and a dictator!
Islam & Communism
The platform of Communism was social reform, a social reform that would be enforced rather than elected. Even though Communism had become a political apparatus, it was, in its core belief, an ideological system fighting for human dignity, at least so it believed. In its philosophy, Communism had a beginning and ending point. It was birthed as a result of an idea, or a system, and it ended because that system could not be created. It was simply an empty oath. Communism didn’t have the ability, in its nature, to produce the utopia for which it fought. Its ending point was reached from within itself, not from without, because it lacked the power of the promise.
Although many political analysts have given credit for the failure of Communism to people like former President Ronald Reagan, Communism fell because it became bankrupt.
Its economical system, its main platform, was a balloon full of air. The further it expanded, the more air it collected, to the point where it could no longer hold the air and: it exploded.
The very core belief of Communism was a common economy or, better said, “a classless society of common ownership of the means of production.”
Marxism (the ideology of Karl Marx) was the root of Soviet Communism. Karl Marx, a German Jewish atheist, philosopher, and political economist, believed that “the nature of individuals depends on the material conditions determining their production.” (Marx, Selected Writings, p.161)
The main thesis of Marx was based upon the class struggle between the high class capitalist (bourgeois) and the working class (proletariat). Marx believed that in order to eliminate the gap and bring society into a communistic state, a transitional state was required, known as “the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat.” In other words, the working class would become the ruling elites instead of the bourgeois.
It is important that you understand the distinctives of Communism, because there is a monumental similarity between Communism and the radical Islam of the seventh century. This is so important for us, and especially our politicians, to understand. It opens our eyes to the mindset and the environment upon which Radical Islam breeds. As a matter of fact, this very point, the economics of the Middle East, is the point of conversion for millions of Muslims from a moderate stand to a radical and hateful position against Western governments. Islam was birthed in repression. Therefore, its economic and political perspectives are extremely similar to that of a communistic system.
For example, on the issue of ownership, Islam ratifies the concept into stewardship – a demanded stewardship. Here is the definition of personal ownership according to the Islamic scholar Sayyid Qutb (the leading member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in the 1950s and 1960s):
“But Islam does not establish the right of personal ownership absolutely, without bounds or limitations; it certainly ratifies that right, but along with it are ratified other principles that almost make it theoretical rather than practical. They almost strip a man bare of his right to possession by the time that he has met all his essential needs. Islam establishes such limitations and bounds as almost render a man bound rather than free in his disposal of his property, whether he increases, spends, or administers it. But it is consideration for the welfare of society that lies behind all this; it is also consideration for the welfare of individual himself with regard to the universal objectives by which Islam orders its view of life.
The cardinal principle that Islam ratifies along with that of the right of individual possession is that the individual is in a way a steward of his property on behalf of society; his tenure of property is more of a duty than an actual right of possession. Property in the widest sense is a right than can belong only to society, which in turn receives it as a trust from Allah who is the only true owner of anything.” (Social Justice…p.132)
If I didn’t know any better I would say the above text was written in the Kremlin! But it is the teaching of Islam and the practice of Mohammad.
Believe in Allah and His apostle, and spend (in charity) out of the (substance) whereof He has made you heirs. For, those of you who believe and spend (in charity),- for them is a great Reward. (Yusuf Ali)
What Allah has bestowed on His Messenger (and taken away) from the people of the townships,- belongs to Allah,- to His Messenger and to kindred and orphans, the needy and the wayfarer; In order that it may not (merely) make a circuit between the wealthy among you. So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you. And fear Allah. for Allah is strict in Punishment. (Yusuf Ali):
On August 24, 1954, Dwight D. Eisenhower signed into law the Communist Control Act which outlawed the Communist Party from the United States and criminalizes membership in, or support for, the Party or “Communist-action” organizations.
The Communist Party was described as “an instrumentality of a conspiracy to overthrow the government,” and as a “clear, present, and continuing danger to the security of the United States.”
Doesn’t the Islamic belief system desire the same outcome: the overthrow of the United States of America (the oppressor)?
Doesn’t Radical Islam present a clear, present, and continuing danger to our national security?
