There is a good article by Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch on the Bush administrations policy of denying the true nature of Islam.
Comment on thread at Jihad Watch on new policy of denying what Islam says or is written.
Good points and discussion. Know the enemy means that we have to get them to stop following traditional Islam. This can mean
a) Making up a new Islam and getting them to think this is what Islam always said.
b) Getting people to intentionally change Islam from what it has been openly.
c) Getting people to drop Islam.
This summarizes many past discussions by many at this site or elsewhere.
An alternative approach is
a) Get ourselves to believe that Islam was always the made up version we have.
b) Mass Muslim immigration here.
c) Let Muslims have access to nukes in our military, be judges, have high level positions in all 3 branches, and even be able to hire and promote and do security clearances on anyone including those having nuclear weapons access and codes.
The alternative is what got us from the 1993 WTC attacks to the 2001 attacks. This is what is policy now. Pointing out what Islam really is is not being a team player. And we know what that means under this administration.
Part of the Bush Method is you label anyone who tells the truth about Islam a racist and bigot or even white nationalist or white supremacist or Nazi. You say they are a malcontent. If they worked in government, they are disgruntled. If they are the family of a victim, they are disgruntled family members or a disgruntled victim if somehow they lived. In criminal law, disgruntled victims are called witnesses. Prisons are full of people on the testimony of disgruntled victims. Even the Bush DOJ uses the evidence of disgruntled victims.
Bush has chosen the lie that Islam is moderate and always was. Bush is and always was a liar. So its not surprising he chose the super lie as the super solution. However, this lie is so obvious, that it seems it could never work. Which is like Bush’s other lies. People are tired of Bush lies. They want the truth.
This is also true about Islam. Pure Islam like Bush Islam already has lies built into it. This is why the Muslim equivalents of Bush like it. Muslim rulers are despotic, cruel and unrestrained. This is all that Bush wants to be and to some extent was in the Decade of Fear.
The expression of people feeling they are coming out of some strange fear is all around us. Several guests on Charlie Rose say they have given up their fears. Actors on his show say that. Give up the fear and get on with it is a common theme.
Bush leveraged fear. He didn’t create it, but he accentuated it and used it. We don’t want to build the permanent fear world that Bush wants. Bush’s vision is Gitmo and immigration that produce a Dark Bush America. There the Bush Clinton families alternate. America doesn’t want that. Muslims don’t either. We need to free them from Islam. That means the total eradication of Islam just like the total eradication of other excess fear systems. Those include Tsarism, communism, fascism, etc.
