Sheikh Muhammad Ayed: “This dark night will be over, and soon, we will trample them underfoot, Allah willing.”(screen capture: YouTube, MEMRI-TV)
Programmed as they are in feminist myth-making, journalists, young and old, often ask incredulously, “Why would Western girls travel to join ISIS fighters?” “ISIS men don’t believe in equality between the sexes.”
At heart, neither do women. Not when hormones rage.
Islamic State projects strength. Strength is an aphrodisiac. Women are biologically programmed to be attracted to powerful men. That’s one reason some girls willingly put on black nose bags and flock to become ISIS brides.
Brainwashed to think biology is incidental, and that men and women are essentially interchangeable; younger readers will likely find it harder to grasp something as primordial and important as the male-female biological category.
Sheikh Muhammad Ayed has no such problem. Speaking in a deep, sonorous voice; in what sounds like classical Arabic, this imam can be observed on YouTube delivering a sermon from East Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque. The object of Sheikh Ayed’s coruscating derision is the emasculated West. It is primed for a muscular, Muslim takeover, he argues.
Said Ayed (as translated by The Middle East Media Research Institute):
“But they have lost their fertility, so they look for fertility in their midst. We will give them fertility! We will breed children with them, because we shall conquer their countries—whether you like it or not, oh Germans, oh Americans, oh French, oh Italians, and all those like you. Take the refugees! We shall soon collect them in the name of the coming Caliphate. We will say to you: These are our sons. Send them, or we will send our armies to you.”
On its side, Islam has ascetic evangelists such as Ayed, who bow to no one.
On our side we have Father Michael Pfleger! He’s the too-hideous-to-behold, standard issue, Western preacher-cum-Obama idolater.
Pray tell: Who looks and sounds more impressive to the young and the impressionable? The impassioned, unapologetic, manly imam in flowing, Lawrence-of-Arabia robes, who channels the Word of his Prophet? Or,Father Pfleger, the soft face of the West’s ultra-liberal faith; a tool of liberal public administration; a man more eager to prostrate himself to Caesar than to serve a higher authority?
Pfleger’s ilk—the West’s priesthood—are in the four corners of the earth preaching hate for their own kind. Thus, in a week in which fifteen blacks wielding Kalashnikovs killed two white farmers in KwaZulu-Natal; another excuse-for-a-man—man-of-the-cloth Michael Vorster—was at a South-African pulpit puling about “the controlling ways of whiteness.”
More so than girls do boys need strong men in their lives—men who affirm their masculinity. When a vulnerable Anglo-American boy hears preachers, parents, pedagogues and politicians pounding on about our country’s Founding Fathers as the archetypical pale, patriarchal oppressors—he quickly learns to reject his country’s heritage and look elsewhere for masculine inspiration, maybe even at Muhammad. After all, American boys, K through Twelve, are mired in an estrogen-infused, cloistered world, where strong men in authority are an endangered minority.
Religious or irreligious, the generic Western guy is instructed to ooze psychological correctness, but sublimate manliness. He never takes charge; he consults and cooperates. He's not necessarily effeminate, but he's safely androgynous (and he’s most certainly not guy-like in the Trumpian sense). As personalities go, this Generic Guy and his wife (oops, “life partner”) are indistinguishable.
The feminization and regulation of Western society over decades has meant that life-saving manliness is confined, increasingly, to corners upon which women are less likely to encroach: the cockpit or combat.
Perhaps this blurring of biological boundaries accounts for why, in Europe, there are no men left to defend the women folk. From Cologne to Hamburg to Stuttgart, the mass molestation of German women by Muslim refugees elicits very little outrage from their natural protectors: the remaining 50 percent of the population.
Why, a decadent dilatant named Ralf Jaeger (interior minister for North Rhine-Westphalia), even ventured that “right-wing poisoning of the climate of our society” is “at least as awful as the acts of those assaulting the women.” Father Pfleger and the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, would concur. The last scurried to wash the feet of his Christ-like victims: the refugees, not the raped.
Although none was in attendance at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, America still has magnificent men who’re unwilling to relinquish their natural, individual right to proceed against evil.
Men like Mark Vaughan.
In September of 2014, a woman at a Vaughan Foods factory, in Moore, Oklahoma, was beheaded by one Alton Nolen, a young, hateful black man, convert to Islam, who was terrorizing co-workers into doing the same.
Another woman, poor Traci Johnson, was also doing an honest day’s work, when Nolen approached her and began sawing at her throat. Suddenly something marvelously American happened. The boss and CEO, Mr. Vaughan, stopped Nolen in his tracks with a bullet. (What a shame Vaughan didn’t stop the butcher dead in his tracks.)
Survival—of the species of the culture of the faith—has a biological dimension. What would have befallen our Hominid ancestors had they implemented gender parity in their hunter-gatherer societies—sometimes the women hunt while the men forage and mind the kids, and vice versa?
In the service of statist sameness, the male-vs.-female biological imperatives are rapidly, if reflexively, being dissolved. Dissolving “The Constitution of Man” is dangerous to civilization, for a subservient, effete civilization will not survive the onslaught of Islam.

Hillary Clinton with Lezley McSpadden
Whatever questionable choices were made at the Republican National Convention last week, I didn't hear of a single speaker whose sole accomplishment was raising a delinquent who attacked a cop.
But as the country reels from the cold-blooded murder of five policemen in Dallas and three in Baton Rouge, Lezley McSpadden, mother of Mike Brown, America's most famous cop-assaulting criminal, appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention.
Welcome to Hillary's convention, celebrating the anti-police group Black Lives Matter!
The whole raison d'etre of BLM is the belief that cops are wantonly killing "black bodies." But only four of the dead black kids being honored were even killed by cops. Two were murdered by black gang members.
Of the four deaths that involved the police, all the victims were fighting the cops when they died.
In this regard, I notice that six of the nine "Mothers of the Movement" have different last names from their snowflakes. The children with the same names as their mothers were the two who were gunned down by black gangs, as well as one schizophrenic, who, unfortunately, had grabbed an officer’s baton and was hitting him with it when he got himself shot.
After massive, enormously expensive investigations, only one officer in any of these four cases was convicted of any offense: involuntary manslaughter for the 2009 shooting by a BART police officer of Oscar Grant -- who was in the process of being arrested for an enormous public brawl when he was shot.
Contrast his death with the deaths of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton and 16-year-old Blair Holt. Hadiya was shot in the back by black gang members, while in a Chicago park with her friends -- who were mistaken for members of a rival gang. Blair was riding a school bus when a black gang member boarded the bus and began shooting.
The police are trying to get these criminal gangs off the street! And their job would be a lot easier without thugs like Mike Brown violently attacking them.
It would be a lot easier if they weren't being constantly harassed by BLM and their lunatic accusations of racist policing.
It would be a lot easier if they were not being targeted for assassination and mass murders by homicidal nuts ginned up by BLM. (Shooting deaths of police are up 78 percent so far this year.)
And it would be a lot easier without a group -- officially supported by the Democrats -- leading marches down city streets, chanting, "What do we want? DEAD COPS! When do we want it? NOW!”
Why does the Democratic platform endorse Black Lives Matter? And, most importantly, why was Mike Brown's mother on stage at the Democratic National Convention?
As absurd as BLM's other cases are, none have been so authoritatively disproved as the yarn about "gentle giant" Brown begging for his life from Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson before being shot in the street like a dog.
Within a few weeks of the "hands up, don't shoot" narrative being broadcast as fact from every media outlet, we saw the video of the "gentle giant" robbing a store and roughing up the clerk shortly before his encounter with Officer Wilson.
This was followed by extensive investigations by both a grand jury and a Department of Justice led by the most racist, anti-police attorney general we've ever had, Eric Holder. But even Holder's Justice Department had to concede the whole "hands up don't shoot" story was a bald-faced lie.
Officer Wilson was completely cleared in the shooting of Mike Brown. As the investigations proved, Big Mike had violently assaulted Wilson, grabbed for his gun, and was charging the officer when Wilson shot and killed this raging behemoth.
However half-heartedly, Hillary claims to oppose cop-killing, so why is she using her convention to promote the biggest lie in the pantheon of anti-cop lies, and to celebrate a man whose most famous act was to violently assault a police officer?
Because of the despicable lies put out by BLM agitators, Wilson had to give up his career, move his family and will be forced to live in fear for the rest of his life. The town of Ferguson was destroyed, businesses burned to the ground, police officers attacked, people injured, the National Guard called in, and massive taxpayer money expended to contain the riots.
But at the Democratic Convention, Lezley McSpadden (mother of Mike Brown) was wildly cheered.
Eric Holder said Brown tried to kill a cop. Are Democrats insane?
If Brown's mother had done something noteworthy, apart from raising a hoodlum -- perhaps pioneering a cardiac stent that will save people's lives -- then one could understand her being a "headliner" at the Democrats' convention. But, as I understand it, her sole claim to fame is giving birth to, and then carefully nurturing, a violent, cop-assaulting criminal.
Donald Trump, along with every other Republican ever to run for president, is required to repeatedly "disavow" David Duke -- someone he's never met, never mentioned, never thought of— and certainly didn’t invite to speak at his convention.
But Hillary invites to her convention the mother of a man whose criminality destroyed a police officer's life, tore the country apart and gave birth to a murderous cop-hating movement. Will a single reporter ask Hillary to disavow that?

Father Jacques Hamel
Yesterday at a Catholic church in France, there were two quite different types of martyrdoms.
Two young male Muslims, bent on waging personal jihad and thereby securing salvation through martyrdom, burst into the old church of St. Étienne-du-Rouvray in Rouen, Normandy during the morning Mass. There they martyred the 85-year old priest, Father Jacques Hamel. They slit his throat as if he were an animal killed for the recent Eid-al-Adha ("The Feast of Sacrifice"), celebrated by Muslims all over the world on the last day of Ramadan.
The Catholic Mass is re-enactment of the voluntary sacrifice of Christ crucified to redeem us before God.
The murder committed by the two terrorists was in obedience to the Koran-directed will of Allah, to "slay the idolaters wherever you find them" (Quran 9:5).
We Christians believe that Father Hamel's martyrdom ushers his soul before the presence of God.
As the two murders stepped outside the church, they too were martyred, dying just after shouting "Allahu Akbar!" ("Allah is Greatest!").
We Christians are familiar with that other concept of martyrdom. Jesus warned his Apostles that men of faith would kill them, thinking they had done God a favor. There have been other, more famous, mid-Mass murders in history. King Henry II of England had the Archbishop of Canterbury killed in his own Cathedral while saying Mass in 1170. The ruling class in El Salvador had Archbishop Oscar Romero murdered as he celebrated the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in San Salvador's Cathedral in 1980. But the murder of Father Hamel was a religious ritual, not a political assassination. It was a spiritual sacrifice by practitioners of the "religion of peace."
Pope Francis, in the Vatican, referred to this killing as "an absurd murder." He could not be more wrong. This was a purposeful act of war against Judeo-Christian civilization. The murder of Father Jacques has great meaning. Our would-be replacements are telling us, "it is time for you to leave the stage of history."
How ironic that this murder took place within a two-hour train ride of the Normandy Beaches. How tragic that the spirits of our fallen soldiers beneath the Crosses and Stars of David in the American Cemetery had to witness this act of aggression by still another totalitarian ideology.
For France, this is also a dispiriting moment. This most recent murder is additional evidence that the old France is dying. It must feel doubly disheartening for those French who still revere that it was here in Normandy that France was re-born in the conquests of William (of Normandy). He died in Rouen in 1087. It was also in Normandy that the French allowed their patron Saint Joan of Arc to be sacrificed at the stake in 1431.
It is certain that there are still French men and French women who remember reading the opening lines of Charles de Gaulle's book, Memoires de Guerre, "All of my life I have thought of France in a certain way... like the Princess in the Fairy Tales, like the Madonna in the frescoes."
There is the hope that there are still enough men and women of faith who will take up the cross and sword to defend our civilization.
Dr. Lawrence A. Franklin was the Iran Desk Officer for Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld. He also served on active duty with the U.S. Army and as a Colonel in the Air Force Reserve, where he was a Military Attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Israel.
