ZENIT: Is it the beginning of a path toward democratization or, instead, to give power to the radicals?
Father Samir [Khalil, S.J.]: I am inclined to say that we are moving toward a greater democracy. Seeing the photos and videos it is clear that they are not young men manipulated by radical movements, by extremists. It was quite clear in Egypt, for example, that Muslims and Christians were going hand in hand, and the extremists have not succeeded in pitting them against each other. The politicians have been unable to do this; they have disappeared. They tried to a degree to foment a counter-revolution, and then they left. They're not at all radical extremists.
There was almost an atmosphere of celebration, a celebration of the people. I think they want more democracy. There is a fact that is not noticed in Europe, in the West, and it is that the people in the Arab world are aware, and they write about it every day, that the Arab world is not well at all. That we are among the worst in the world. This feeling is very widespread among intellectuals: What have we done for the good of humanity? And there is an aspiration to be able to live as the other countries do.(://www.zenit.org/article-31848?l=english.)
To paraphrase Snagglepuss (if you know the reference, fine; if you don't, just remember I wasted a good deal of time in my childhood watching television), "An Arab springtime even!" An Arab "springtime"? Here's what they call on the streets a "reality check":
At least 13 people died and 140 were injured in clashes between Muslims and Coptic Christians in Cairo on Tuesday.
Both Coptic Christians and Muslims were killed in the
violence, which began during a protest by Copts against last week's
burning of a church.
Egypt's Sunni authority has urged Muslims to help rebuild the church, calling its destruction un-Islamic.
The clashes come two months after a suicide bomber killed 23 people at a Coptic church in Alexandria.
In January, an Egyptian man was sentenced to death for
shooting dead six Copts and a Muslim policeman in Naga Hamady, southern
The violence erupted when Coptic protesters blocked a highway
in the Egyptian capital, protesting against the burning of the church in
the province of Helwan.
The rally angered Muslims who wanted to pass through.
Witnesses said both sides threw stones, and the army fired into the air
to disperse the crowds.
The Grand Imam of al-Azhar issued a statement on Tuesday
condemning the attack on the church in Atfih, Helwan governorate, as "a
distortion of Islam".
Sheikh Ahmad al-Tayyib called on Muslim residents of the town
to help start rebuilding the church and to refrain from sectarian
violence, Egypt's official news agency, Mena, reported.
Meanwhile, thousands of Coptic protesters continued their
sit-in outside the state television building. They are calling for the
rebuilding of the church, better protection for Christians, and a full
investigation into last week's attack.
Copts - who make up about 10% of Egypt's population - have
often complained of harassment and discrimination, and argue that
attacks on them go unpunished or result in light sentences.
The government in the predominantly Muslim country denies discriminating against Copts. (Ten dead after Copt-Muslim clash in Cairo.)
A distortion of "Islam"? Hardly. The false religion of Mohammedanism was born of violence. It has been spread by violence. It has been maintained by violence. There has been, quite to the contrary of assertion made by United States Representative Peter King (R-New York), no "radicalization of Islam." (for a rather comprehensive report on the hearing being held by Representative King, please go to Robert Spencer's Jihad Watch and King Hearing Witnesses Say U.S. 'Failing' to Confront Radical Islam.) To assert this is to ignore the whole of this false religion's history of bloodletting, of constant efforts to batter Christendom, of the demands being made now in more and more Western countries for the recognition of the Mohammedan "law" of "Sharia" as those formerly Catholic lands have been depopulated of their indigenous people as a result of the widespread acceptance of use of contraception and the decriminalization of surgical baby-killing. God is indeed using the Mohammedans to chastise the so-called "civilized" West just as He used the barbarians of old to bring down the Roman Empire in the West. No land is civilized when its laws permit the frustration of the natural end of marriage and when they allow for the slicing and dicing of innocent preborn children by various surgical means.
A number of articles on this little-read, much castigated site in the past few years have focused on the violent, bloodthirsty reality of Mohammedanism (see, among others, Killing In The Name of The Religion of Peace. Hawaii Sleep-O, Pope Saint Pius V and the Conversion of the Muslims, Just Following Their "Pope's" Call for Cohesion, Mainstreaming Mosques, Still Trying to Make Everyone Happy Except God Himself, Combustible Material: Keep Back Five Hundred Feet This Truck Carries Naturalism, Bag Man in a Karakul Hat, Not Interested in Assisi III, American Pots Lecturing Egyptian Kettles and Blood Flows Freely in America and Libya). There is no need to repeat ad nauseam, ad infinitum each of the points that have been made in these articles. However, it is useful to note that the false distinctions being made by many conciliar revolutionaries and Western politicians between "radical Islam" and "the religion of peace" are delusions from the devil himself to keep people from recognizing that Catholicism and Catholicism alone is the one and only foundation of personal and social order. Nothing else.
Yes, Jean-Louis "Cardinal" Tauran said last year that "dialogue" between his own false church of conciliarism and the Mohammedans was going "nowhere." Yet it is that he stated as recently as January of this year that the Vatican remained "open" to "dialogue" with the followers of the false "prophet" named Mohammed, who rejected the doctrine of the Most Blessed Trinity (see (see Hillaire Belloc, The Great and Enduring Heresy of Mohammed.) And, of course, the false "pontiff" himself, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI remains committed to holding his "World Day of Prayer for Peace" in Assisi, Italy, seven months from now even though the Mohammedans have demonstrated time and again that they are truly not interested in Assisi III. They are interested in world domination, unaware of the fact that the forces of Antichrist will crush each false religion, including Talmudic Judaism and Mohammedanism, in preparation for the apocalyptic battle with the true religion founded by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope, Catholicism. In other words, the Mohammedans lose. So does every other false religion no matter how much blood they shed in its promotion.
Most of the lords of Modernity and most of the lords of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism are quite adept at ignoring truth in order to appease the tender sensibilities of those who they believe would be "offended" by stating the truth clearly and unequivocally. The current administration of Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus is replete with individuals, starting with caesar himself, who have gone out of their way to avoid using the words "Islamic terrorism," attempting to cover-up and downplay the significance of attacks such as the one that was perpetrated by Major Nidal Hasan at Food Hood, Texas, on November 5, 2009. United States Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and United States Attorney General Eric "I Got a Pardon for Marc Rich" Holder have refused to recognize, no less admit, that Mohammedanism is violent of its very nature and its spread across Europe and here in the United States of America represents a grave and vital threat to the personal safety of ordinary citizens. Many of the conciliarists understand the threat, believing in all of their utter insanity that "religious liberty" is the answer to these threats (see Unity and Peace Cannot Be Based in Error and Falsehood, part one, Bearing "Fruits" From Hell Itself, part one and Bearing "Fruits" From Hell Itself, part one.)
It is no wonder, therefore, that our own caesars are so "sensitive" to the "feelings" of Mohammedans when the men who claim to represent the true Church make it appear that each religion can contribute to the "building of a better world" as long as "religious liberty" is respected. Statements such as those below made by George Walker Bush and Barack Hussein Obama make perfect sense when you consider the fact that the devil has succeeded in placing spiritual robber barons in the Vatican and diocesan chancery offices, thereby robbing the world of the prophetic voice of Christ the King:
The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of Muslim clerics -- a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam. The terrorists' directive commands them to kill Christians and Jews, to kill all Americans, and make no distinction among military and civilians, including women and children. . . .
I also want to speak tonight directly to Muslims throughout the world. We respect your faith. It's practiced freely by many millions of Americans, and by millions more in countries that America counts as friends. Its teachings are good and peaceful, and those who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah. (Applause.) The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself. The enemy of America is not our many Muslim friends; it is not our many Arab friends. Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, and every government that supports them. (Applause.) (George Walker Bush, Address to the Nation, September 20, 2001.)
As we know, these men belonged to al Qaeda – a group of extremists who have distorted and defiled Islam, one of the world's great religions, to justify the slaughter of innocents. Al Qaeda's base of operations was in Afghanistan, where they were harbored by the Taliban – a ruthless, repressive and radical movement that seized control of that country after it was ravaged by years of Soviet occupation and civil war, and after the attention of America and our friends had turned elsewhere.
Just days after 9/11, Congress authorized the use of force against al Qaeda and those who harbored them – an authorization that continues to this day. The vote in the Senate was 98 to 0. The vote in the House was 420 to 1. For the first time in its history, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization invoked Article 5 – the commitment that says an attack on one member nation is an attack on all. And the United Nations Security Council endorsed the use of all necessary steps to respond to the 9/11 attacks. America, our allies and the world were acting as one to destroy al Qaeda's terrorist network, and to protect our common security. (Barack Hussein Obama, Address on the War in Afghanistan, December 2, 2009.)
This kind of insane political correctness, which is practiced also on occasion by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, keeps American policy makers from admitting that Mohammedanism of its demonic nature is an assault against God and seeks to destroy those who will not follow its false "god" and its false teachings, therefore predisposing them to let domestic terror cells form in the United States of America as a result of immigration laws based on political correctness and electoral self-interest. Weak, cowardly American politicians have made this country unsafe by their refusal to keep out those who seek to dominate here as they are now dominating throughout parts of Europe.
There is only one solution to the Mohammedan threat just as there is only one solution to the threat posed by Talmudic Judaism and its related allies in Masonic lodges: Catholicism. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has sent His Most Blessed Mother to earth to implore us to pray her Most Holy Rosary for world peace and to pray for the conversion of sinners, starting with ourselves as we seek to make reparation to God through her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart for our sins. Catholicism, not any false religion or any form of naturalism, including the falsehood that is "conservatism," is the solution. Nothing else: Who says so? Look once again for yourselves:
Here we have, founded by Catholics, an inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
This, nevertheless, is what they want to do with human society; they dream of changing its natural and traditional foundations; they dream of a Future City built on different principles, and they dare to proclaim these more fruitful and more beneficial than the principles upon which the present Christian City rests.
No, Venerable Brethren, We must repeat with the utmost energy in these times of social and intellectual anarchy when everyone takes it upon himself to teach as a teacher and lawmaker - the City cannot be built otherwise than as God has built it; society cannot be setup unless the Church lays the foundations and supervises the work; no, civilization is not something yet to be found, nor is the New City to be built on hazy notions; it has been in existence and still is: it is Christian civilization, it is the Catholic City. It has only to be set up and restored continually against the unremitting attacks of insane dreamers, rebels and miscreants. omnia instaurare in Christo. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Please, my friends, do not deceive yourself. The babbling voices of naturalism that blather on and on and on about having "faith" to make the country "strong" again are themselves agents of the devil as they promote a renewed sense of religious indifferentism that is at the core of the false principles of the American republic. Each an every Catholic must reject and completely oppose any and all calls for a generic "faith" to combat the evils of the day as such calls come from the devil himself and from no other source, regardless of the "good intentions" of the complete and utter ignoramuses who make those calls. I mean, folks, why should we be opposed to Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's calls for a kind of generic Christianity while embracing those of bombastic talk show hosts?
We should, obviously, recognize the truth of these words written by Pope Pius XI in Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937, that apply to the American sense of religious indifferentism just as much as they did at the time to the employment of the word "faith" by partisans of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany:
Beware, Venerable Brethren, of
that growing abuse, in speech as in writing, of the name of God as
though it were a meaningless label, to be affixed to any creation, more
or less arbitrary, of human speculation. Use your influence on the
Faithful, that they refuse to yield to this aberration. Our God
is the Personal God, supernatural, omnipotent, infinitely perfect, one
in the Trinity of Persons, tri-personal in the unity of divine essence,
the Creator of all existence. Lord, King and ultimate Consummator of the
history of the world, who will not, and cannot, tolerate a rival God by
No faith in God can for long survive pure
and unalloyed without the support of faith in Christ. "No one knoweth
who the Son is, but the Father: and who the Father is, but the Son and
to whom the Son will reveal Him" (Luke x. 22). "Now this is eternal
life: That they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom
thou has sent" (John xvii. 3). Nobody, therefore, can say: "I believe in
God, and that is enough religion for me," for the Savior's words brook
no evasion: "Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. He
that confesseth the Son hath the Father also"(1 John ii. 23). . . .
Faith in Christ cannot maintain itself pure and unalloyed without the
support of faith in the Church, "the pillar and ground of the truth" (1
Tim. iii. 15); for Christ Himself, God eternally blessed, raised this
pillar of the Faith. His command to hear the Church (Matt. xviii. 15),
to welcome in the words and commands of the Church His own words and His
own commands (Luke x. 16), is addressed to all men, of all times and of
all countries. The Church founded by the Redeemer is one, the same for
all races and all nations. Beneath her dome, as beneath the vault of
heaven, there is but one country for all nations and tongues; there is
room for the development of every quality, advantage, task and vocation
which God the Creator and Savior has allotted to individuals as well as
to ethnical communities. The Church's maternal heart is big enough to
see in the God-appointed development of individual characteristics and
gifts, more than a mere danger of divergency. She rejoices at the
spiritual superiorities among individuals and nations. In their
successes she sees with maternal joy and pride fruits of education and
progress, which she can only bless and encourage, whenever she can
conscientiously do so. But she also knows that to this freedom
limits have been set by the majesty of the divine command, which founded
that Church one and indivisible. Whoever tampers with that unity and
that indivisibility wrenches from the Spouse of Christ one of the
diadems with which God Himself crowned her; he subjects a divine
structure, which stands on eternal foundations, to criticism and
transformation by architects whom the Father of Heaven never authorized
to interfere. (Pope Pius XI, Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937.)
Yes, my good and very few readers, the "Church founded by the Redeemer is the one, the same for all races and all nations," including the United States of America. We are not going to stop the tide of the threats posed by Mohammedanism and other false religions with any form of naturalism, with any highly emotionally laden appeals to waste one's Catholic time and money on compact discs and books and other materials produced by dopes who have not studied the Social Reign of Christ the King evangelize in behalf of one Americanist myth after another that can do nothing but reaffirm people in a welter of errors just as surely as do Ratzinger/Benedict himself and his "bishops." We must avoid all contact with these agents of error and indifferentism. Who says so? Look again for yourselves:
Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God. (Pope Leo XIII, Custodi Di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892.)
The belief held by Ratzinger/Benedict (and, of course, by the man that he will soon beatify, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II; for an interesting commentary on the forthcoming "beatification," please see the work of one in the "resist but recognize" movement, The Apotheosis of Antichrist) that "religions" can be a "force for peace" and the sappy sentimentality of inter-cultural cooperation spread by one American president after another (see Kindred Spirits of the New World Order and Not A Mention of Christ the King, which is perhaps my most comprehensive historical review of the Americanist ethos on our presidents) have no foundation in truth. Indeed, Pope Saint Pius X, condemning The Sillon whose false principles serve as the very foundation conciliarism's perverse "social teaching," eviscerated the apostasy of the conciliarists and the naturalism of the lords of Modernity in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910:
Indeed, we have the human experience of pagan and secular societies of ages past to show that concern for common interests or affinities of nature weigh very little against the passions and wild desires of the heart. No, Venerable Brethren, there is no genuine fraternity outside Christian charity. Through the love of God and His Son Jesus Christ Our Saviour, Christian charity embraces all men, comforts all, and leads all to the same faith and same heavenly happiness.
By separating fraternity from Christian charity thus understood, Democracy, far from being a progress, would mean a disastrous step backwards for civilization. If, as We desire with all Our heart, the highest possible peak of well being for society and its members is to be attained through fraternity or, as it is also called, universal solidarity, all minds must be united in the knowledge of Truth, all wills united in morality, and all hearts in the love of God and His Son Jesus Christ. But this union is attainable only by Catholic charity, and that is why Catholic charity alone can lead the people in the march of progress towards the ideal civilization.
There is nothing serendipitous about Mohammedanism.
There is nothing "redemptive" about the false, naturalistic, religiously indifferentist, anti-Incarnational and semi-Pelagian principles of Modernity with which the conciliarists have made their "reconciliation."
We have been given Our Lady's Rosary to help us in this time of apostasy and betrayal, in this time of chastisement. Let us use this instrument, well, especially in this holy season of Lent, as we seek to deny ourselves more and more so that our hearts will yearn only for the things of Heaven and that we will be more and more able to view the world exclusively through the eyes of the true Faith as we, unworthy though we may be, plant a few seeds for the restoration of the Social Reign of Christ the King and of Mary our Immaculate Queen!
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and the hour of our death. Amen.
