Islam and the Failure of Multiculturalism

The fundamental tenet of the canard called "multiculturalism" is that “ALL cultures are equal, there are no superior/inferior cultures.”

Of course, nothing could be further from the truth.

The absolute and unavoidable truth is that just as “all science isn’t equal” (ie. the “junk-science” that once blamed cerebral palsy on medical problems during childbirth), all cultures aren’t equal either.

The closer one looks at Islamic culture, the clearer it becomes that it is completely and irretrievably incompatible with the modern West.

It is a culture that makes a religious stricture over ethnic, religious and cultural intolerance and it is one rooted in a savage, barbarity that would’ve made even the cruelest of 18th Century European Slavers blush.

And that’s just the start!

One of the lessons of 9/11/01 is that the cultural intolerance and jihadist hatred inculcated by traditional Islam CANNOT be educated out of a person, as virtually ALL of the 9/11 hijackers were well-educated, outwardly Westernized Arabic-Muslim men, just as were the 7/7 bombers in London and the recent Glasgow bombers of England - almost all of them were physicians! Mohammed Atta (pictured above) was a trained engineer, the son of an Egyptian physician, a well-educated and outwardly Westernized man, but deep down inside, he was a Muslim extremist first and foremost.

The dirty little secret that many in Europe and America refuse to see is that there is no such thing as “fundamentalist Islam.” Since Islam has never had a Reformation, traditional Islam, as it exists today IS “fundamentalist Islam.”

Moreover, there is NOTHING espoused by the so-called militants and radicals of the Taliban and al Qaeda that aren’t espoused in the Koran. At most, they are Muslims who interpret the Koran somewhat more strictly than do those we call “Moderate Muslims.”

The fact is that ALL cultures that do not recognize property rights, have been rife with chattel slavery, abominable torture and the violent suppression of the most basic liberties. That’s true of the American Indian culture, European feudalism, the indigenous African culture, Chinese Agrarian Communism and Russian Soviet Socialism, as well as German National Socialism.

In Europe, the control of all property by the state (by the “Royals”) during the feudal period, has given way to more and more advanced systems, up to today’s private ownership of property (land and businesses)...a system with roots in England, but which was first put into practice in America.

Today, ALL non-market-based systems, and systems that do not respect private property and individual liberty are indeed inferior to the market-based cultures and economies of America, Europe and Japan.

Let’s be clear about that and let traditional Islam serve as proof that the foundation of this sham called “multiculturalism” is made of sand.
