The failure of liberalism

“…A liberal is incapable, and possibly unwilling, to understand that there are people on the globe whose world of ideas differs from his. That is why liberals comfort themselves with the words MK Ilan Gilon (Meretz) said when denigrating my opinions: “Everyone wants more happiness and less suffering.”  Everyone, according to Gilon, includes Muslims and religious Jews,. He refuses to accept the fact that for believers, religious commandments are more important than their personal and collective happiness, that they are willing to suffer while performing Heavenly commandments, convinced that it is His will. Adding to happiness and reducing suffering are on the bottom of their wish list.

Every time I am interviewed by the media, I try to convince listeners that the basis of the conflict between our neighbors and ourselves is a religious one; because the Islamic religion sees Judaism as a false religion, meaning that the Jews have to be dependent on Muslim mercies and cannot be masters of themselves. The religious theme does have a nationalist element – our neighbors do not accept the definition of the Jews as a people but see them as discrete communities belonging to whatever country they are in, those countries to which the Jews presently in Palestine must return.”

    “A good many Western states simply refuse to believe that Muslims – some of them, at least – immigrate to the West in order to Islamize it, no matter if it takes tens or hundreds of years to do so.”

    This is at the heart of the conflict between Islam and the rest of the world, but specifically Israel and the west.

      Hijrah – Emigration to conquer.
      Mohamed did it. Muslims are supposed to gain great rewards in paradise just for moving to non-Islamic areas. the intention is to conquer using Sharia Law.

    I had to read 3 times to understand.
    I never really looked at Liberalism in the same light as yourself.
    You are correct.
    It is crazy what is going on..

    At least , you let me know that the same Liberal disease has also infected the Jews.
    Why is ISLAM immune?

    Why is Liberalism critical of every Religion except ISLAM ?

    Is it because they are Violent and Aggressive ?
    And instill fear.

    Is it because every sick Perversion is an Attribute if you are a Muslim?


    Is it because Political Correctness has DESTROYED —
    All Competition.

    We need to take back the language. Stop calling these people liberals.

    They are Leftist authoritarians, aka, Marxist Leninist nutters..

    The conclusion is clear. When liberals run a world which is, for the most part, still attached to tradition and religions, Islamic in the main, the unavoidable result is a long chain of disasters and disastrous mistakes that will lead the world to the edge of a bottomless abyss.

    All form of Liberalism is a failure from classical liberalism to neo liberalism a.k.a socialism to progressive conservationism (liberalism).
