    Islam : A History

    Islam means ‘submission’. Submission of your whole existence to what your god decrees. It was thought up by the supporters of a seventh century Arabian gangster in order to consolidate their criminal organisation’s hold over the region. It is followed by over a billion people on this planet.

    Muhammad was the sixth century equivalent of a travelling salesman or lorry driver. He drove his goods caravan and camel train across the Arabian peninsula, buying and selling cheap trinkets, dates, nuts, spices and fancy goods. He was born on April 20, 570 AD. Like all self-important nouveau-riche types, he embellished his family tree to claim a direct descendance to Abraham, the founder of the Jewish religion, of which Islam is a branch just like Christianity. However, despite the Arabs claiming to have invented arithmetic, Mo’s followers weren’t too clever at sums as his family tree goes back twenty-three generations to Abraham — approximately 2,700 years — meaning each father would had to have sired a baby boy at the age of over one hundred years. What is more plausible is that Muhammad was from a well-to-do business-class family.

    Mo was brought up by a Bedouin wet-nurse in the desert, but lost both his parents young. He was raised by his uncle Abu Taib, a big business mogul in Mecca. He was given his own branch of the family business to take care of when he reached manhood. At 25 he married his 40-year-old boss and had some nippers. After she snuffed it, he started going into caves on his own and taking drugs. He was hallucinating all sorts of mad shit, seeing heaven and hell, going on fanciful journeys and even talking to the angel Gabriel! It was his ageing wife, in her late fifties, who first called Mo ‘prophet’. Whether she was humouring him, massaging his tender ego, or just having a laugh is of no matter as Mo decided that he liked the idea of being ‘god’s sole messenger on Earth’. Her cousin was a Christian and backed him up, probably to try and recruit him, but Mo considered himself the prophet, not Jesus.

    Mo tried persuading everyone that he was in direct contact with the Judeo-Christian god. Most people ignored him, but gradually he gathered together a bunch of cranks who thought he was the top boy. Mo was frustrated by the Meccans’ adherence to idolatry and multitheism, and his group of hardcore Abrahamists were forced to flee to the Christian kingdom of Ethiopia for refuge. Mo however stayed in Mecca, until his family died, and his funds began to dry up. He then had another bout of bad dreams and hallucinations, this time involving a long journey to Jerusalem, and a discussion with Moses, Abraham and Jesus. He believed that he was the next prophet.

    These delusions of grandeur were clearly going to his head, and surrounded like Elvis by a gaggle of yes-men and ‘friends’, he cut off all links with his family and moved to Yathrib, now called Medina. There, he and his gang started a protection-racket, whereby non-gang members, Jews, Christians and multitheists were taxed. Mo’s gang then became highwaymen, holding up caravans from Mecca. This racket grew until these armed thugs constituted his own private army. Many Meccans were murdered in cold blood by the criminals. After one slaughter, in Badr in 624, his flunkies declared their boss to be the son of god, or ‘god father’. All Jews were now expelled from Medina, and the remaining Medinans forced to acknowledge Mo’s rule. Mo, 52, then married his business partner and friend’s six year-old daughter Aisha, who became the third of his twelve wives. It’s a good job the News of the World wasn’t published in those days!

    A protracted war broke out between the Medinan gang of Dirty Mo, and the Meccan gang led by Abu Sufyan. After The Battle of the Trench in 627, every Jewish man in the area was beheaded and the women and children raped and enslaved. Three years later Muhammad commanded an army of 10,000 men and forced the city of Mecca to bow to his rule, on pain of death. He now controlled all business in the Arabian peninsular. Mo snuffed it two years later, on June 8, 632, aged 62. Only his daughter Fatima from his first marriage survived him, and he refused to allow a woman to take over his gang.

    A feud broke out between his son-in-law, Ali, and his adviser, Abu Bakr as to who should succeed Mo. Ali was defeated, and his supporters became Shi’at Ali (advocates of Ali). Abu Bakr took over Mo’s empire and began waging war against the Bedouins, Persians and the Byzantines.

    Over the next two centuries, Dirty Mo’s unique mix of gangsterism and hero worship was forced upon the rest of the region — from north Africa to India, from Turkey to Madagascar. It grew into a ferociously superstitious cult, where any criticism of the legacy of Mo was considered blasphemous and punishable by death. His cult became known as ‘The Submission’ or ‘Islaam’ — and all free will and reason is replaced by the literal living of their lives by the Islamic FAQ, known as the Quran, which spells out the rules and regulations of being a proper Muhammad fan.

    His followers are still divided between the Shi’ites (Ali) and the 85% of Moslems who call themselves Sunni. There is a huge tourism industry whereby cult members across the world visit Mecca to throw stones at it, the Haj pilgrimage. Unfortunately this is the point when fanatics tend to get a bit over-excited, resulting in stampedes and others disasters which have “blighted” the Haj in recent years.

    All sorts of shit is banned in Muslim countries — homosexuality (punishment: death), masturbation (amputation), communism (death), and adultery, whereby any woman who so much as talks to another man may be punished.

    This is the insane, sick belief system defended by liberals, and even some socialists today. Do you submit to it?

  1. Wee Jin Suk (Korean for LotchKonez) says:

    Clearly Class War have been infiltrated by fear or something…

    Fundamentally, many religions and doctrines require submission, are violent, and are restrictive about a range of sexual and social practices. Why pick on Islam?
    My local curry shop in Melbourne is run by Bengali muslims (Bangladeshi) and the videos they show are anything but fundamental. They are more likely to succeed in their goals through tasty value curry than Class War who stand around at Camden Market begging for donations and selling reactionary literature full of cockney slang instead of doing their laundry.

  2. Wee Jin Suk (Korean for LotchKonez) says:

    Losing potential radicals to the doctrine of Islam?
    They seem to have done more for inter class warfare in the era of the New International Division of Labour than Class War have done.

  3. Terry says:

    Just what we have come to expect from Class Bore – badly thought out mockney cab driver drivel with a fake ultra left base.

    Get a job.

  4. @ndy says:

    Terry : “Get a job”?

    What’s my employment status got to do with Class War’s position on Islam?!?

    (Or are you suggesting that the mockney ‘Class Bore’ get jobs?)

    Wee Jin Suk : “Why pick on Islam”?

    Dunno… CW are best placed to answer that. They do claim that leftists and liberals have ‘gone soft’ on Islam but — “This is the insane, sick belief system defended by liberals, and even some socialists today” — so maybe they want to appear ‘hard’?

    I thought it was worth re-publishing ‘cos it’s v provocative…



  5. clancy says:

    I think they make a good point. Fuck Islam and every other religion and stop appeasing religious bigots because it makes you feel like you should be doing something.

  6. Darrin Hodges says:

    well that’s a nice racist piece of crap, but at least your motivation is there:

    “I thought it was worth re-publishing ‘cos it’s v provocative…”

  7. @ndy says:

    Cheers Dazza, “your bunch of worthless fucktards” you!

    My motivation? “Dunno” is obviously in reference to *Class War’s decision* to publish this article: I “dunno” why they’ve chosen now to do so. (Anarchist opposition to religion — all religion — is hardly ‘news’.)

    The article itself *is* “v provocative”; my own views I’ve yet to state.

    Go sell some gay porn you silly Hitlerite.

  8. @ndy says:

    Dazza asks on his blog:

    “I could ask the same thing @ndy, what has my employment (that you never fail to mention) got to do with anything I say or do? One day, when I’m no longer working there, you’ll be still linking everything I say or do to my ex-employer. I should think you will get some ‘legal’ interest coming your way – a moment I look fo[r]ward to.”

    What does yr employment by have to do with your political opinions?

    I “dunno”…

    It’s for you, not me, to reconcile your job selling pornography and sex toys to people you would otherwise wish to see dead; so too, your employer.

    Your exposure as a neo-Nazi took place late last year. It followed the so-called ‘race riot’ in Cronulla in December, and only occured after you chose to use your work email to post racist nonsense.

    You attended this event, but not proudly. You even lied about yr postings to Scumfront:

    “And plenty of those stirring up hatred are locals too, not just to Sydney but to the Sutherland Shire.

    …The internet on its own is also a hotbed for white supremacist activity, giving them instant access to their paltry and disparate fellow travellers across the country and overseas, offering the anonymity they crave.

    One active local member, who goes by the moniker “Proud to be an Infidel”, has been a regular contributor to international white supremacist organisation Stormfront.

    Via a series of electronic footprints, anti-Nazi campaigner Mat Henderson-Hau has linked “Infidel” to Engadine local Darrin Hodges.

    Hodges, who runs a website for a sex toy distributor, yesterday admitted to being a member of the racist Australia First Party but denied being a member of any white nationalist groups or a contributor to Stormfront.

    His alleged alter ego is not so shy.

    “Friends, today was an historic day, the day Australians stood up against state-imposed multiculturalism,” he wrote on the night of the Cronulla riots.

    Accompanying his posting is a series of photographs he took at Cronulla that day, including one of a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “wog free zone” and another of a sign offering free sausages to the crowd, with “no tabouli”.

    Infidel also speaks of footage he filmed on the day which Henderson-Hau believes was used in a video released over the weekend that glorifies a mob of rioters bashing various non-whites at Cronulla.

    Posted on Saturday, it had been downloaded around 400 times by yesterday afternoon.

    It follows an earlier video credited to “White Nationalist TV” and dubbed “The Battle For Cronulla”, which was released on the Stormfront website on the night of the riots and has since been downloaded 1700 times.

    After several minutes of footage showing skinheads emblazoned with the iron cross and three-bladed swastika taking part in the Cronulla “gathering”, the video finishes with the words “Not white, not welcome in Cronulla”.

    If there was any doubt as to what Infidel and his ilk stand for, consider one of his earlier posts on Stormfront in which he states: “I’m more interested in the purer form of fascism… and while I don’t subscribe to the whole ‘worship Hitler’ thing, his comments on multiculturalism and politics in general are still just as relevant today as they were 70-odd years ago.”

    As for — if you’d like to avoid having me connect you to yr (ex-)employer, you simply have to inform me when you leave.

    Either that, or will inform me, I guess. That is, if they care: they appear not to give a flying fuck either way, and are obviously more than happy to have their company name associated with vicious homophobes such as yr own good self.

    Hugs ‘n’ kisses,

    I’m surprised that the twats of Clown War haven’t mentioned how they supported the IRA bombing working-class people. Fucking hypocrites.
