Brand Islam as part of the mental control grid

Brand Islam

This article is from The Qur’an: A Complete Revelation.

Clearly, the gatekeepers of this particular facet of the overall control grid are unlikely to smile upon findings which, in essence, debunk their religion on the basis of the book they claim as its foundation.

And the priesthood and the unthinking portion of the laity of that religion will be unlikely to consider the evidence here on its merits. Why should they? Their position gains neither purchase nor power in critical thinking.

However, those of us who are able to think are forced to think, to think ahead, and to think for those who will not think. With this in view, I have the following points to make. There is an event (one I have to assume to be present among the options of military planners and those of other think tanks) which, if enacted, will set off a powder keg of emotions among those who follow the Traditionalist.

This event – should it happen – will be calculated to provoke the reaction needed to further the broader geopolitical goals of the ruling elite. I have in mind the destruction of the so-called kaʿaba at Makkah by a Nato smart-bomb, or as part of a further patsy-based ‘terrorist’ operation.

Should this event come to pass in whatever form, those who today follow the mullahs – and whose religious sentiment has a sincere basis – will be forced off the pavement and out onto a theological crossroads, one which they will have no option but to consider critically in order to negotiate. Then they will not only be forced to consider the like of what is presented here, they will be very glad of the opportunity to do so.

On a separate but related topic: the Traditionalist should bear in mind that the lack of criticism of him and his position he currently finds among Western scholars and media denotes neither assent nor acknowledgement of his authority. It is the result of policy – one he had no part in forming. As and when the ruling elite’s need for an Islamic bogeyman abroad and Islamic social-engineering programs at home are superseded by narrative requirements featuring some new set of fictions – be it asteroids heading towards earth, alien invasion or some new contagious disease, it really doesn’t matter – the cultural cover which the Islamists presently enjoy in the West will cease.

If and when that happens, criticism of the Traditionalist narrative will become common, if not de rigueur. The Traditionalist’s total narrative is both fundamentally and obviously faulty (as anyone with even average critical abilities who has taken the time to look at the evidence will allow), and attacking it on the basis of the ḥadīth literature has two key features, both of which are rather depressing for the Traditionalist: firstly, it is fun; and secondly, it has a tantalisingly low entry point. (There are entire YouTube channels run by intellectually unimpressive Christians dedicated to little other than bashing ḥadīth, the total impression of which is of hicks sitting out in the yard calmly blasting fish in a barrel with shotguns over a few beers with a boar on a spit in the background.)

The Muslims, naturally, have their own champions; and while certain Muslim apologists – intelligent ones – make a strong presentation when attacking the legion problems with Christian narratives, they look distinctly weak once forced to defend ḥadīth (or the Qur’an when presented on the basis of the same). My point here is this: highly intelligent and well-financed Western opinion-makers will turn their sights on brand Islam once word comes down from further up the food chain that it may safely be attacked (i.e. once brand Islam has served its purpose inside the gates of the Western nations, namely that of forwarding the project of the ethnic and cultural corruption of the original populations, and providing the powers-that-be with the justification needed to create a police state in previously ‘democratic’ countries) and that it may be done at a level more august – and with a cultural saturation greater – than that possible via YouTube.

By defending his non-Qur’anic literature and drawing his understanding of the Qur’an through a filter of the same, the Muslim could only lose against such an adversary even were he honed and practiced in the art of intellectual confrontation – and he is neither. There was a time when those he claims as his forebears were intellectual masters. But that was a thousand years ago and the scenery is very different now.

The question now is not whether the Muslim of today – and not some legendary intellectually formidable ancestor – will lose; it is only how he will lose and in what specific ways he will be stamped into the ground.

For myself, I am not trying to save the Traditionalist, nor am I trying to stem the tide of the collapse of my own culture – both are struggles doomed to failure. My defining allegiance is neither to the white race (a race which shows itself too easily deceived to warrant continued existence as a viable mass demographic, at least in a form which is intellectually rigorous, culturally sustainable or morally defensible), and nor is it to the Islamic religion which fails on the same criteria. My defining allegiance is to God, to the message of the Qur’an, and to those who strive both to understand that message and to apply it.
