In 2015  Czech MP Jiri Kobza suggested that all ideologies that promote hatred and violence should be banned. One of the ideologies is Islam. And then we have fascism and Nazism, he says. He points out that Muslims neither want nor will integrate into non-Muslim societies. It is not migration – it is colonisation.


There is a great deal of ink spread on discussions about white oppressors and colonizers now that white oppressive colonizers have  been accused of genocide in Canada. The Toronto Star reports:

“The National Inquiry on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls heard thousands of stories of systemic and structural violence and reached the inescapable conclusion that the Canadian state has perpetrated a genocide against Indigenous peoples.”

In order to understand the meaning of genocide in Canada the Toronto Star shared this explanation.

“Colonial genocide is a slow-moving process. Unlike the traditional paradigms of genocide, such as the Holocaust and the Rwandan genocide, which took place in determined periods of time and were characterized by mass killings, colonial destruction of Indigenous peoples has taken place insidiously and over centuries. It is structural, systemic, and traverses multiple administrations and political leadership.”

Let’s take a look at that definition: “…colonial destruction of Indigenous peoples has taken place insidiously and over centuries. It is structural, systemic, and traverses multiple administrations and political leadership.”

One is left believing that only white people are oppressors and colonizers. That’s not true.

Where is the inquiry into Muslim structural, systemic insidious colonizing over the centuries? Why do we not talk about that?

Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start. Let’s start in the Middle East, 2000 years ago. The Jewish people had brought a new ethic into the world and Paul shared it in the form of Christianity after his revelation on the road to Damascus. For hundreds of years the area was Christian, Jewish and pagan. Then came Mohammed and beginning in the seventh century Islam spread its wings; colonizing the Middle East and North Africa, and in time moving into parts of what is now Russia and Christian Europe; Spain and Portugal. France, south Italy Malta  Croatia, Bosnia and  Herzegovina, Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, Greece, and the European part of Turkey. The spread of Islam so alarmed the British Christians that they went on a series of Crusades to take back Jerusalem, from the Muslim colonizers.

Late 15th century Europe was free of Islam and back to its Christian roots.

But Islam continues its march. The Caliphate was down after WWI. Down, but not out. Islam is spreading again. Colonizing again. And oppressing.

Let’s talk about the Yazidis. A topic rarely discussed in main stream media.

“In August 2014, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) launched a coordinated assault on the Yazidi homeland of Sinjar. Thousands of young women were kidnapped as sex slaves, and thousands of men and older women were murdered.

“The genocide was thought to affect nearly half of the global Yazidi population of about 1 million people, most of whom lived until recently in the Middle East. The entire Yazidi population of Sinjar — about 400,000 people — was displaced  men and older women were beheaded or shot, young women and girls kidnapped as sex slaves, and prepubescent boys kidnapped for indoctrination as ISIS fighters or suicide bombers. ISIS propaganda makes it clear that the terrorist group views Yazidis as less than human, and that the murder and enslavement of Iraq’s Yazidi population was a coordinated effort.”

“While many other ethnoreligious groups in Iraq have been subject to violence from Islamic State, the treatment of the Yazidis in particular is one of the most pertinent examples of sexual violence and human trafficking as a tactic of terrorism.”

These acts were not committed by white oppressors and colonizers.

And now, according to a report commissioned by the British foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, we have millions of Christians attacked by Muslims.

Pervasive persecution of Christians, sometimes amounting to genocide, is ongoing in parts of the Middle East, and has prompted an exodus in the past two decades “The inconvenient truth,” the report finds, is “that the overwhelming majority (80%) of persecuted religious believers are Christians.”

Hunt reported:”The Justice and Development (AK) party of the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, for instance, is highlighted for denigrating Christians.”

He then added this statement that I think is of grave importance: Christian countries are too nervous to talk about the persecution of Christians by Muslims.

“I think we have shied away from talking about Christian persecution because we are a Christian country and we have a colonial past, so sometimes there’s a nervousness there,” he said. “But we have to recognise – and that’s what the bishop’s report points out very starkly – that Christians are the most persecuted religious group.”

The report shows that a century ago Christians comprised 20% of the population in the Middle East and north Africa, but since then the proportion has fallen to less than 4%, or roughly 15 million people and the population of Palestinian Christians has dropped from 15% to 2%.

“…states, and state-sponsored social media, sometimes incite hatred and publish propaganda against Christians, especially in Iran, Iraq and Turkey. “The governing AK party in Turkey depicts Christians as a ‘threat to the stability of the nation’. Turkish Christian citizens have often been stereotyped as not real Turks but as western collaborators.

The level and nature of persecution is arguably coming close to meeting the international definition of genocide, according to that adopted by the UN.

“The eradication of Christians and other minorities on pain of “the sword” or other violent means was revealed to be the specific and stated objective of extremist groups in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, north-east Nigeria and the Philippines. An intent to erase all evidence of the Christian presence was made plain by the removal of crosses, the destruction of church buildings and other church symbols.

“The rise of hate speech against Christians in state media and by religious leaders, especially in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia, has compromised the safety of Christians and created social intolerance.”

This oppressive behaviour is not coming from white colonizers.

There are those in Europe who do not want to be colonized again. As we declare white people as colonizers and committers of genocide in Canada, should we not also push back against the Muslim colonizers and oppressors of today?

In 2015  Czech MP Jiri Kobza suggested that all ideologies that promote hatred and violence should be banned. One of the ideologies is Islam. And then we have fascism and Nazism, he says. He points out that Muslims neither want nor will integrate into non-Muslim societies. It is not migration – it is colonisation.

Nov 2015 Czech President Milos Zeman addressed thousands of people at a protest organized by a group called Bloc Against Islam, warning against immigrants who belonged to a “culture of murderers and religious hatred.”

He also stated:

“I think we can coexist with Buddhism, Hinduism, Shinto, Confucianism, but we cannot coexist with Islam. It has anchored in its sacred texts that it must rule the world and have unbelievers submit.”

Zeman’s attitude is close to that of the “father of Singapore,” Lee Kuan Yew (1923-2015), the great statesman and founder of modern Singapore, who said:

“I would say today, we can integrate all religions and races except Islam…. After 40 years of patchy economic development, many Arabs feel anger and humiliation that their once glorious Islamic civilization has been diminished by the West, especially America, and corrupted by its licentious culture… Muslims want to assimilate us. It is one-way traffic and they have no confidence in allowing choice.”

Zeman has warned of the willful blindness to Islamism’s “sharia-apartheid ideology,” similar to what former US federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy described for the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in June 2016, when he said:

“From the standpoint of American national security, it is irrelevant whether there is a true Islam. What matters is that there is a sharia-supremacist construction of Islam to which millions of Muslims have adhered for centuries…They are supported by centuries of scholarship and scriptural literalism. We are not going to convince them that they are wrong… They do not care what American politicians and commentators think about ‘the true Islam.’ They judge themselves by their own civilization and culture principles – just as we in the West do by ours… “Sharia supremacism, their interpretation of Islam, is not a religion as we understand religion. It is political radicalism with a religious veneer. Sharia supremacism is virulently anti-Western, misogynist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic. It rejects basic tenets of Western liberalism, including the power of people to chart their own destiny and make their own laws in contravention of sharia. It rejects individual liberty and equality. It brooks no separation between spiritual life and civil society. It endorses violent jihad to implement and spread sharia. And it regards the United States, closely trailed by Israel and Europe, as the principal enemies of Islam that must be defeated. That is something we desperately need to understand and highlight, not obscure and avoid…

Are we not hypocritical if we just push back against white colonizers? Or have we decided that Christian countries do not have the same rights as non-Christian countries?
