• "We know the Muslim Brotherhood on one hand, the Salafists on the other hand, try slowly and then constantly to re-Islamise the Muslim population of France and turn it against the Republic. It has been said overtly by many mouths, many clerics of Muslim confessions. I think it's a risk because France is a privileged target. If France swings over to the re-Islamisation of French Muslim citizens it would be a victory for all the fundamentalists." -Pascal Bruckner on BBC Hardtalk with Stephen Sackur Many Muslims are like my husband who was born into a Muslim family but never really got into the religion himself. He was too busy with his schooling and work. He found Quranic memorization and performing the rituals uninteresting. Since he went to boarding school and studied abroad, his family did not have the opportunity to indoctrinate him as much as they would have liked. It was this background that made our East/West, Muslim/Christian marriage possible. But after we had our first child, things changed. His family told him he would be in Hell if his children were not raised Muslim, and he believed them. That was the beginning of our descent into Hell. We went so far down that it has taken years of effort, with the help of others, for our family to begin to climb out of it. And that effort has been most challenging for the children who knew little else. To avoid Hell, Prophet Muhammed's advice was to teach them about Islam; however, over the centuries, Islam has become Islamism, or religiously-veiled politics. The Muslim scholars have managed to take something that most definitely is not a duck and make it look like a duck, swim like a duck and sound like a duck, convincing great numbers of people that this dangerous creature is a duck. Islamism is not Islam, but a poisonous ideology that fatally poisons every kind of relationship. Re-Islamization is the act of sucking people into the jaws of the poisonous ideology of Islamism through someone familiar with it. This ideology teaches that music, art, poetry, and "non-Islamic" reading/writing are forbidden for a "true believer." If you do any of this, you are an "unbeliever," even if you are a "Muslim."

  • "The problem with Islam is Islamism..." -Pascal Bruckner Source: BBC's HardTalk--Philosopher and Writer Pascal Bruckner, April 18, 2017: Stephen Sackur talks to writer Pascal Bruckner and asks, is something rotten in the Republic of France? Is France living through an age of decline? Stephen Sacker: "...I do now want to put to you something that I find quite shocking and that is in your recent writing about the state of France today, you've said that for you one of the two biggest dangers and challenges facing the French Republic today is political Islam. Islamism. Are you serious about that?" Pascal Bruckner: "Yes, I'm very serious..." Definition of ism  : a distinctive doctrine, cause, or theory  : an oppressive and especially discriminatory attitude or belief <we all have got to come to grips with our isms — Joycelyn Elders> Source: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ism My book and blog are "not about Islam" because there is no need to write a book about Islam which is why Prophet Muhammed never wrote one. The "clear signs" he left for people to follow were so clear any book would have only muddied the waters as have all the books written since his time. These scholarly works have brought about Islamism, and Muslims defend it so vociferously because they have been told all their lives that Islamism, an ideology bearing no resemblance to Islam, is Islam. Pascal Bruckner objects to the term Islamaphobia and how it is used. However, it is a perfect description of the fear of Islam gripping the Muslim community because of the threat Islam poses to the rigid, inflexible Islamist doctrines they were born and raised with and so vehemently defend.
