Ayn Rand’s Wisdom on the Nature of Genocide, and the Applicability of Her Perspective to an Understanding of Jihad Theology

“There is no principle by which genocide—a crime against a group of men—can be regarded as morally different from (or worse than) a crime against an individual: the difference is only quantitative, not moral. It can be easily demonstrated that Communism means and requires the extermination—the genocide, if you wish—of a particular human species: the men of ability.”–Ayn Rand, “The Objectivist Calendar” June 1978

Merely add “the men of persistent, unvarying kufr” (disbelief, refusal to Submit) alongside the “men of ability” to the above quote — and you comprehend the dastardly aims of the perpetual institution of Jihad at-Talab/Jihad bi-l-Saif

“{ فَأَمَّا ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فَأُعَذِّبُهُمْ عَذَاباً شَدِيداً فِي ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ وَمَا لَهُمْ مِّن نَّاصِرِينَ }

As for the disbelievers, I will chastise them with a terrible chastisement in this world, through being killed, taken captive and made to pay the jizya, and the Hereafter, in the Fire; they shall have no helpers, none to protect them from it.”–Tafsir al-Jalalayn “Surat al-Imran [Q 3]”

Jihad is genocide…it presupposes that the blood and property of kuffar are mubaa’— that is, licit for the taking by al-mu’minin (the “true believers”, those who enjoin al-Ma’ruf and forbid al-Munkar, i.e. follow the Shari’at to the hilt and exclusively impose it upon their subjects, thus eradicating the “profanity” of jahiliyyah and the laws of fitnah) — and that the slaying and plundering of those kuffar who refuse and resist the suzerainty of the Dar al-Islam (and thus rebel against the “divinely-mandated” global order of Islamic supremacy) is mustahabb (a holy sacrament), which must be carried out by a contigent of al-mu’minin annually (otherwise, the entire Ummat al-Muslimin is guilty of sin). Even those who do “revert to the Religion of Unspoilt Nature” may be lawfully slain and their possessions expropriated if they are perceived to be insufficiently Muslim — that is, once such people have been excommunicated through fataawa by ulema (the process of takfir). The Islamic deen (totalitarian religious system) — its fiqh (jurisprudence) — was and is incredibly vile and cold-blooded, despite the veil of piety cast over it

“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him [PD: in the present], and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and after they bore witness that the Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) is true and after clear proofs had come unto them? And Allah guides not the people who are Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers). They are those whose recompense is that on them (rests) the Curse of Allah, of the angels, and of all mankind. They will abide therein (Hell). Neither will their torment be lightened, nor will it be delayed or postponed (for a while).”– Qur’an 3:85-88, Translation of Muhammad Mohsin Khan

“It is narrated on the authority of Abu Malik: I heard the Messenger of Allah say: He who professed that there is no god but Allah and made a denial of everything which the people worship beside Allah, his property and blood became inviolable.”—Sahih Muslim Book 1 Number 34

“It has been narrated on the authority of Anas that, on the Day of Hunain. Umm Sulaim took out a dagger she had in her possession. Abu Talha saw her and said: Messenger of Allah, this is Umm Sulaim. She is holding a dagger. The Messenger of Allah asked (her): What for are you holding this dagger? She said: I took it up so that I may tear open the belly of a polytheist who comes near me. The Messenger of Allah began to smile (at these words). She said: Messenger of Allah, kill all those people-other than us-whom thou hast declared to be free (on the day of the Conquest of Mecca). (They embraced Islam because) they were defeated at your hands (and as such their Islam is not dependable).”–Sahih Muslim Book 19 Number 4453

According to the Muhammadan Shari’at, the idea that the individual alone has merit is rijs (an abomination) and a heresy which causes fitnah (temptation away from Islam and the Shari’at); man’s faculty of reason is condemned unequivocally — as can be seen through the concept of al-fikr kufr (the very act of individual thought is disbelief/apostasy). This destructive ideology asserts — this is the essence of all totalitarian systems, remember — that the individual has no intrinsic worth except as a “Slave of Allah”, as an indistinguishable cog in a collective, conforming invariably to the authoritarian and exacting dictates of Allah’s Law, i.e. the Shari’at. He who proclaims, in contradistinction to the Islamic hegemonic order, that the individual man is a standard of value unto himself — that his worth as a human being and his continued existence is not and should not be predicated upon the degree of his enshacklement to others — must be slain in cold blood, according to Rasul’allah Muhammad himself…

“It has been narrated (through a still different chain of transmitters) on the Same authority (i.e.’Arfaja) who said similarly-but adding: “Kill all of them.” I heard the Messenger of Allah say: When you are holding to one single man as your leader, you should kill who seeks to undermine your solidarity or disrupt your unity.”–Sahih Muslim Book 20 Number 4567

…Thus, vocal freethinkers can only expect annihilation under a resurgent Khalifat

“The Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever changes his religion, execute him.””–Sunan ibn Majah 2535

“Narrated Ikrima…the Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.'”–Sahih Bukhari Volume 4 Book 52 Number 260

…A perfidious doom which persists into traditional Islamic eschatology, according to sahih sittah

“Narrated ‘Ali…No doubt I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “During the last days there will appear some young foolish people…their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, where-ever you find them, kill them, for who-ever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.”– Sahih Bukhari Volume 9 Book 84 Number 64

…Even those Muslims who live alongside kuffar and assimilate among them, who do not desire to Islamize them either through Da’wah or Jihad at-Talab/Jihad bi-l-Saif, are emphatically condemned as munafiqun (hypocrites) or even murtaddun (apostates), deserving al-sayyaf (the sword)…

“O Prophet (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, – and worst indeed is that destination.”–Qur’an 9:73, Translation of Muhammad Mohsin Khan

“Narrated Samurah ibn Jundub: To proceed, the Apostle of Allah said: Anyone who associates with a polytheist and lives with him is like him.”–Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14 Number 2781

“If the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease and the agitators in the city do not desist, We shall most certainly set you over them, then they shall not be your neighbors in it but for a little while; Cursed [PD: QATTALA, literally meaning “murder, massacre, or slay”]: wherever they are found they shall be seized and murdered, a (horrible) murdering. (Such has been) the course of Allah with respect to those who have gone before; and you shall not find any change in the course of Allah.”–Qur’an 33:61-63, Translation of Muhammad Habib Shakir

Salafi — pure — Islam is by its own admission incompatible with the foundational principles of Western Civilization, which are incumbent upon the recognition of the intrinsic worth of the individual…it is, by its own admission, built upon racist and genocidal pillars, and in this ranks with the worst of collectivist tyrannies throughout the record of human civilization…

“Collectivism means the subjugation of the individual to a group—whether to a race, class or state does not matter. Collectivism holds that man must be chained to collective action and collective thought for the sake of what is called “the common good.””–Ayn Rand, “The Only Path to Tomorrow,” Reader’s Digest, Jan. 1944, p. 8

Such is the enumerated aim of all tyrannies, Islam included; the only outcome such Utopias have afforded is streaming rivers of blood and a strangulating descent into barbarity and stupidity…

One Response to “Ayn Rand’s Wisdom on the Nature of Genocide, and the Applicability of Her Perspective to an Understanding of Jihad Theology”

    Winston Churchill said it pretty good:
    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

    Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities — but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

    – Winston Churchill – The River War, volume II pp. 248–50 (1899)
