Those of you who are new to the blog are wondering about this title. It could pertain to 167 and Ducky's natural state but not for this post.
VS Naipul is a brilliant author who is a true craftsman. He doesn't machine gun his readers with facts or jokes in odd places. He has a great fluid style but the best style still belongs to Monica Crowley. Reading a book should never feel like a chore
and Naipul's style is a plus except when he ventures into art and botany. I am versed in both areas so it was no problem for me.
Naipul gently describes Islamo colonialism erasing traditions among converted people.
I am struck by the animaslistic rage Javans whiped themselves into all because a poet signed an article AG meaning he is a Christian. This matches the idiocay of the far left who also get their pants tied in a knot over anything from non Commie front groups claiming to be Christian.
I do not need a Marxist using my history (joooish )to indict Christianity. Holocaust survivors were a part of my daily life and none of the hundreds I knew ever said a word about Christianity. However I can and do talk with Russian Emigres who will tell you the most venal anti semites are Marxists.
The rationale of Islam is simple anything that came before Islam belongs to the age of ignorance and must be erased. Thus when Arafat dennied to Clintooon that the Temple ever existed in Jerusalem he was repeating standard Islamic practice of trashing history for his own ends , Communists also play this game by creating non people and events.
The rationale of Islam is that everyone is born Muslim and that only by submitting to the truth is your life worthy. Excuse us Abdul Americans are people of backbone
unlike Euroleftists we do not yield to intimidation. Yet te Euroleft remains silent over the Progressive answer to Islam. The Progressive put the troublesome Muslims onto cattle cars and sent them ( Poles , Balts were also sent) to die in a frozen wasteland.
