The 57-member Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) or the great wartime leader Winston Churchill?
Behind the scenes we are hard at work putting together the backup material that will support our songs. While we’re doing this, when we put up particular items that can stand alone we will announce them here on our blog.
Today we added a short page to The Library detailing first how Winston Churchill called Islam the “religion of blood and war” and contrasting that with the claim, from the OIC, that Islam is the “religion of peace, tolerance and compassion“. We feel it’s rather hard to reconcile those two statements.
Winston Churchill wrote in his book, “The Story of the Malakand Field Force”:
Thus the Turks repel their enemies, the Arabs of the Soudan break the British squares, and the rising on the Indian frontier spreads far and wide. In each case civilisation is confronted with militant Mahommedanism. The forces of progress clash with those of reaction. The religion of blood and war is face to face with that of peace. Luckily the religion of peace is usually the better armed.
If you want to see a longer version of that quote, and something from the OIC with which to compare it, take a look at the following page in The Library: Winston Churchill versus The Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC)
As we continue building The Library our Winston Churchill page will grow listing an increasing number of quotes that are relevant to the work we’ve been doing. Of particular interest is an extended extract from “The Gathering Storm” which gives the complete context to Winston Churchill’s oft repeated quote about Mein Kampf: “Here was the new Koran of faith and war“. We feel that the statement following that “the main thesis of Mein Kampf is simple” is much more important. Read his brief précis of Mein Kampf and Judge for Y’Self.
We are working hard behind the scenes both on our music and our website to explain it. When we can we’re trying to make public small parts of the ongoing work.
The Law has been working feverishly on his explanatory material where he will go into details on many of the Islamic concepts like Sharia Law or the jizya tax that the band sings about. He will have definitions and explanations, short and summarized but with a mountain of extra detail for those more interested.
As a base for the work, and while we put in place our own explanations, we’ve included here the complete text of Gregory M. Davis’s introductory course “Islam 101″. Islam 101 has been hosted on JihadWatch: Islam 101 on JW and on Citizen Warrior: Islam 101 on Citizen Warrior We believe it represents a clear and concise basis upon which we can build.
You can find our version of Islam 101 in The Library and linked in our main menu bar.
If you’ve heard our songs (which you can do via our home page), you’ll know that the lyrics are packed with more information than the health warnings for a drug advertisement on US TV. Which is why we’re taking our time and not going for a big launch yet.
When everything is ready we will have a full reference site that gives every lyric to all of our songs and then links those lyrics to detailed notes and explanations. We have been very careful with our words: words can be powerful weapons and we don’t want them to be misunderstood.
We’ve also done our homework and we want you to know that.
For now we’re opening up a tiny portion of what we call “The Library“. We have one article up at the moment which is a side by side comparision of the full text of the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is the very heart of our song Best Nation.
Maybe you haven’t read either, if so, don’t feel you have to read them all, just read a couple of paragraphs of each and compare the styles.
Soon we’ll be giving a complete explanation of how this shocking document has been accepted by the entire edifice of the UN.
You may also notice we’ve updated to our new, more subtle, logo. We hope you like it. We’ll also be talking more about our various characters in due course.
