Allah the Exalted declares in Ash-Shura (42:11-12):
What you call the mushrikun to follow
is very hard for them.
Allah chooses for Himself anyone He wills
and guides to Himself those who turn to Him.
They only split up after knowledge came to them,
tyrannising one another.
The present world situation is marked by the pessimistic unity of all its commentators who confirm that a whole system once seriously flawed has now collapsed utterly. The dual pillars that upheld world trade and political order have fallen in on each other. With the disintegration of the financial system, its instruments and institutions, has come the disgrace of the despised political class.
Hidden behind the false complexities of macro-economic models and modalities the political class, obedient to their remit, tried to conceal the reality that the system had collapsed. Their task was to assure the masses that it could be put together again. It took one simple financial event and person to expose to the public what had been so brilliantly veiled from them. One little criminal revealed the true nature of the global crime. When, overnight, the investment banker Bernie Madoff confessed that his 50 billion dollar investment company had collapsed, it suddenly became clear. Mr Madoff had not stolen the money. It was not hidden away. It had not been expropriated by other financial entities. It had disappeared. No, not even that, unless it is seen as a Houdini trick. It first is made to seem to be there. Then it is made to seem to disappear. It began to dawn on people. The ‘money’ had never been there in the first place.
It was the historical, demonstrated, end of a deception.
Money ex nihilo, the product of the usury principle. Capitalism.
It had now become necessary to take urgent and powerful actions to hold down the masses, lest post-Madoff, they finally become enraged at the democracy-system of finance and call for an end to it.
The system had only one set of cards left to play – to distract the awakening billions of the world’s poor. Terror. The terror-event as instrument of removing civic freedoms (which can lead to protest and change of regime) and of enslaving the masses in obedience to the State, not seen as tyranny, which it is, but as the necessary protection of the endangered civic arena.
Long after the one and only, properly speaking, terrorist act, the destruction of two New York skyscrapers, it had been necessary to posit the political theory that it was an on-going process requiring protective, socially inhibiting regulations.
First came the shoe-bomber. An idiot with explosives hidden in his shoes, utterly incapable of exploding it, the apparent world-terror-organisation had trained the youth to board the plane and immolate himself and a planeload of innocents.
No one pointed out that the so-called world-terror-organisation must in fact be inept, comic, and utterly, as was proved, ineffective.
Second, came the next competitor in keeping the whole world trembling in terror. This time it was the Nigerian lad with the exploding Y-fronts. He, like his shoe exploder before him, simply could not ignite his own underpants.
Now, body scanners at every airport.
Third, the code red alert technique. Britain was put on a ‘terrorist attack imminent’ warning. Nothing happened, of course. We have entered the age of State tyranny by cyclical false alarms.
Ron Paul, the politically sophisticated republican presidential candidate, openly declared that the U.S. stood in no danger from terrorist attack and the function of body-scans and name vetting is in order to create an utterly subservient populace too afraid to challenge the State.
In the same time-frame as the exploding underpant terror attack another incident took place in Pakistan. A young Jordanian had been recruited as an agent to be planted among radicals as an agent provocateur. The young man then declared himself a double-agent and ended his life killing several American operatives. Since this recruitment is a modus operandi of U.S. security personnel, may we not deduce that the two young men, shoes and underwear, were also planted, given enough explosive material for flash and bang without endangering the plane? Are we not now in the final classical terrorist stage as recorded by Dostoevsky in Czarist Russia in which the terrorist is now the police-programmed innocent or idiot?
The State’s intended result, intimidation of the masses to prevent civil unrest, is then assured by another raft of legislated social inhibitions.
In Ancient Rome Tacitus warned:
“Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges.”
When the Republic is at its most corrupt the laws are most numerous.In the 1945 post-War election, Churchill warned the electorate of the danger inherent in socialism. His criticism raised a cry of outrage from the exhausted nation. No one listened. The socialists swept to power. Half a century later Churchill’s warning proves to have been as prescient as his warning against fascism. He had said:
“No socialist government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently worded expressions of public discontent. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance. And this would nip opinion in the bud; it would stop criticism as it reared its head, and it would gather all the power to the supreme party and the party leaders, rising like stately pinnacles above their vast bureaucracies of civil servants, no longer servants and no longer civil.”
In 2010, after the evidence of Minister Claire Short to the Iraq Enquiry, who could argue with his words?
John Buchan wrote: “The Roman Empire fell in the end because of the pressure of the barbarians on its frontiers, and because of the ruin of the middle classes within by insensate burdens, and the degradation of the proletariat into a frivolous impoverished rabble.”
Let us apply this to today: pressure of the barbarians – the Chinese.
Ruin of the middle classes – the burdens of tax and anti-terrorist laws.
Degradation of the proletariat – vampire movies, football and de-valued currency.
It is time for the enslaved billions of our world today to fear no more the exploding shoes and underpants of the idiot agents of capitalism and to learn what Islam really is. It has two parts encapsulated in our declaration of faith.
“I declare that there is no god but Allah (that is, the Creator of the Universe) and, I declare that our Master Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”
Thus, the first half of the religion is all the science of worshipping the Divine, by prostrations, an annual fast and payment out of one’s wealth, and Pilgrimage.
The second half of the religion is following the Messenger in all trade and contracts with honour and without usury or increase inside the exchange, along with real-value instruments of exchange like gold and silver.
