The demise of secular dogma
"These people are so scared of public opinion they are willing to set in stone the right to ignore it. Freedom requires the governing elite to be held to account. They must be getting very worried if they are enacting such dictatorial powers for themselves." Thus comments Nigel Farage, the leader of the UK Independence Party, on the European Parliaments attempts to prevent Euro-sceptic members from organising themselves and rightly calls the EU mindset arrogant and anti-democratic. What he fails to perceive in his criticism, however, is that this arrogance and intolerance was not invented by European bureaucrats or even Communist commissars before them. This arrogance is a key feature of secular dogma of which Muslims have been at the receiving end for decades due to practising and holding on to their beliefs more tightly than those who still call themselves Christians.
In Germany and France "enlightenment" sinks to the depth of judging a Muslim woman on the basis of whether she wears a piece of cloth on her head or not and denying her access to education or public office if she does. The showcase of secularism, however, is Turkey, where European powers conspired through the Masonic and crypto-Jewish Young Turk movement to unseat the Muslim caliphate and outlaw religious interference in politics. The movers behind the European super-state are as weary of Turkey as they are of the Euro-sceptics amongst their midst; neither can be trusted because of the "public opinion" factor. Euro-sceptics in many European countries are calling for the people to have a say through referendums on a proposed European constitution, common foreign policy, or joint armed forces, and whenever the people were given a democratic chance to voice their opinion they clearly rejected what their masters in Brussels had in mind for them. Hence, if the people are not mature enough to agree to what the unelected European Commission proposes, they must be denied the right to express their views altogether. In European double-speak this is called democracy in action.
In Turkey, likewise, the people never abandoned Islam and it keeps making a come-back. Over and over again those wanting to reform the fundamentalist secularism of Turkey into a proper democracy where Muslims, after all constituting the majority of the population, also can have their aspirations realised, are being outlawed. Whenever a party with Islamic leanings obtains a majority and enters government, the courts and the military try to declare it illegal and in violation of the secular constitution. In addition, they jail politicians who do not agree with them for their opinions. The Turkish constitutional court has just overturned a law passed by parliament which would have allowed Muslim girls to enter university wearing a scarf, and there is talk once more of banning the ruling AK party which only a year ago had won such a strong mandate during elections that European governments must be rightly worried, since their own popular support is forever diminishing.
In a similar show of desperation the secularists have passed a 3-year jail sentence on Adnan Oktar, known around the globe under his pen name Harun Yayha, for dearing to successfully demolish Darwin's theory of evolution as well as exposing Freemasonry. Likewise, European countries regularly jail "revisionists" who dear wanting to subject some of the "founding myths of Israeli politics" (Roger Garaudy), which tirelessly propagated through the official version of the "Jewish Holocaust", to a measure of scientific scrutiny. The "freedom of speech" argument regularly used when it comes to the right to insult what Muslims hold sacred (e.g. when defending Rushdie's or a Danish cartoonist's right to insult, see response in Satanic Voices Ancient and Modern), is conveniently forgotten whenever secular fundamentalist dogma is being attacked. After all, it is the nature of dogma that it must not be questioned. History, however, teaches us that a false dogma cannot be upheld by legislation and court sanctions. Ordaining the earth to be flat and punishing any expression of doubt that it might not be still does not make it so. This is why our rulers are "scared", as Farage put it. They know they are fighting a losing battle, for the truth will out.
