Ahmadinejad’s Lust for Blood

September 30, 2009


Glenn Beck did a superb job on his program last night discussing the horrifying belief system that shapes Ahmadinejad’s lust for wiping Israel off the face of the earth.

Beck refers to the Iranian despot as “the Twelver” because Ahmadinejad believes that he must purify the earth with as much human blood (and preferably of the Jewish variety) as possible in order to hasten the return of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi, who is the much-anticipated Islamic messiah. This is precisely what Ahmadinejad was talking about in his UN speech and it is exactly why his regime is in the process of building the nuclear bomb (if it hasn’t already built it).

Not surprisingly, we haven’t heard one peep of criticism, alarm or ridicule from the liberal Left about all of this. It’s understandable, of course: they are too busy keeping an eye on the real threats to peace in the world, such as Glenn Beck and, well, you know, some right-wing Christian evangelist somewhere who is trying get someone to believe in Jesus Christ. That’s far more dangerous than what the Twelver is up to, right?

In any case, Beck’s shedding of light on the Twelver is extremely important because doing so crystallizes — and reminds us of — what the militant Islamic ideology is all about. The yearning to disinfect the world with human blood is at the foundation of the Islamist impulse. If we are to have any chance of defending our civilization successfully, we simply have to digest this reality.

The French-born scholar Laurent Murawiec has written one of the most profound works on this phenomenon: The Mind of Jihad. This fascinating and frightening book summarizes the Islamist ideology’s overriding theme: “I kill, therefore I am.” In his study of the Islamist terrorist’s mindset, Murawiec explains:

“. . . the means has become the end. The blood of the enemy renews the identity of the lynch mob. . . . Death is not an instrumentality—like the death of the enemy on the battlefield—it has become an end in itself . . .”

Murawiec points out that the suicide-killing manual left behind by Mohammed Atta, the leader of the 9/11 attacks, included a provision commanding that before going on his mission, the Islamic warrior must make sure his knife is sharp: “you . . . must not discomfort your animal during the slaughter.”

The animal being referred to is the non-Muslim whom the Muslim is instructed to kill. As Murawiec observes, we see here the element of human sacrifice for the sake of pleasing God.

A stunning example of the importance of spilling human blood in this kind of Islamist ritual sacrifice was the assassination in 1971 of Jordan’s prime minister, Wasfi al-Tell, by PLO terrorists. As al-Tell lay dying on the marble floor of the Sheraton Hotel in Cairo, one of the terrorists knelt down and began lapping up his blood.

In his work, Murawiec cites a long sequence of such incidents of blood-worship in what Saudi lawyer Sheikh Mohsin al-Awaji has referred to as the Islamic jihad’s “industry of death.”

Ahmadinejad is a death-cult walking. Do the West and the Obama administration have the courage to stare this threat in its face? If they do, they must understand the threat before it defeats them.

Editor’s note: Read about the true nature of the Islamist death-cult and the Left’s alliance with it in Jamie Glazov’s new book, United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror.

    “Does the West and the Obama administration have the courage to stare this threat in its face? If it does, it must understand the threat before it defeats it.”

    Do you think the Obama admininstraion and the good people on the Left will understand it? If so how? If not why not?

      Ever since the 60’s, it seems like the left is against every military action we take… The backed off for a little while, shortly after 9/11, but it didn’t take them long to declare us the villains shortly thereafter…

      The anti-war flower children were a little different, precisely because they WERE children.. but the vast majority of them grew up.. Those who didn’t grow up, now serve as the senior management of the far left..

      Why didn’t they grow up ?

      This is just MY opinion, but I think they’re still this way because they’re cowards, and cowards always resent those who have the stones to stand up and fight when that’s what’s needed… So all talk of war makes them nuts because deep down they know that they don’t have the stones to stand up as men and do their part. When people of weak minds who lack intellectual integrity, are confronted with those not similarly afflicted, they last out at them in a feeble effort to try to prop themselves up & make themselves feel better about themselves… It’s all based on a well deserved inferiority complex… just like slick willie’s womanizing was..

        Actually Swemson, I think the Left still believes we can manage all these affairs diplomatically (i.e. if we just talk to them). Well that works with people who are willing to talk, but history has demonsrtated repeatedly these rogue regimes aren’t going to respond to diplomacy.

          Of course they do Julie…. Their ideology has become their religion, just as the extremists have turned environmentalism into a religion, and don’t forget climate change that’s become HOLY writ to those fools….

          The fact remains however that on each and every one of these subjects, they’re 100% WRONG, and I think we have to look a bit deeper to understand why they believe all the crap they’re pushing….

          We don’t disagree here..

    Imamadjihad spent $30million decorating the well that the 12th iman is to rise from.
    He is a serious mad man.

    The inaction of the west is more than likely going to force Israel into having to do the unthinkable in order to survive these monsters. I just hope they do not wait till it is to late. Israel must act and there is only one way to stop these monsters from destroying them and no one wants to say it or think it but in the end it will have to happen there is no other choice.
    I still say that 12th imam’s ass has to be really cold in that well.

      I think action by Israel is the only way. The middle east “peace” talks have been going on since I can remember and what have they accomplished. Nothing except to point out there is still not a declared winner in the Arab-Israeli war.

      Someone has to be the winner and we’ve got to move on. I think Israel won (1948, 1967, etc) but in order to get the Arabs to see that they lost it’s going to take decisive action by Israel.

      I’ll probably be attacked for saying this, but IMHO, taking out Iran’s nuclear and military facilities isn’t enough..

      We HAVE to take out their leaders as well… and that includes Achmanutjob AND all the mullahs who are calling the shots.. Taking out their governmental offices and the residences of their leaders in Teheran WILL of necessity create collateral damage to civilians, but ever since 9/11, I don’t really give a damn about ANY of them anymore…

      This isn’t simply about regime change, this is about wiping out a plague !

    The liberals won’t understand this, even when the islamofacist is drawing the knife across their throat, or blowing them up. The liberal will deny what’s happening, even when his body is being torn apart, and that’s because they live in the land of “It’s all the right’s fault.”

    According to Islam everything is predetermined by Allah. You would think they would have gotten the message from Allah after loosing every war with Israel, but not the Arabs, now they have to avenge Allah.
    Would someone please tell these idiots that they ran out of virgins in paradise, perhaps they will stop destroying the world.

    My point is when Iran has a nuke it will be tested on Israel. They cannot let that happen no matter what it takes. If Israel wishs to survive they must destroy Irans nuke capability once and for all. I can almost sense, I hate to use the word feel that millions of Iranian people understand this and know that there lives are at risk. I know it is a horrible situation but there is no other solution. Every day that the government of Israel waits is a crap shoot. It this evil forces of Iran do destroy Israel they are not going to stop there. they see there self being restored to a Persian empire by an Islamic bomb. It must be stopped what ever is required and they cannot count on help from the fool in the Whitehouse.

    When will people understand that you cannot understand the logic of the Middle East–Iran, Israel and surrounding nations until you see it through historical eyes and a spiritual perspective. This is the world view(s) that Iran and Israel, etc. see through. Ahmadinejad is creating nuclear weapons not to “test” on Israel, but for the determined destruction of Israel and those that would support her. We need to look at this in the context of the past 3000 years and the history behind it all. Negotiations are moot for someone with a life purpose and plan to bring about the end times of the world as Ahmadinejad has declared.

    If we simply igore him as a “nut”, we underestimate his deadly intentions. (All serial killers are “nuts”, that do despicable, horrific things.)

      I do it see it a great deal through that perspective I guess using the term teat the nuke on Israel was misunderstood by you and it’s intent. That was to say that Iran and the nuts will not waste time they will use it on the tiny nation and when you are that small it just takes one. I hope that clears it up for you?

      You’re too kind to them…. there IS no LOGIC to how they think and what they do…

    The people on the left, need only study what has happened to Communists in Iran, in the last 30 years of a Mullahcracy.
    Their unity with Jihadist, is as stupid as Stalin’s agreement with Hitler, at the onset of the second world war.

    “As al-Tell lay dying on the marble floor of the Sheraton Hotel in Cairo, one of the terrorists knelt down and began lapping up his blood.” and Mohammed Atta writes that he must make sure his knife is sharp: “you . . . must not discomfort your animal during the slaughter.” — If we heard this about any other killer, we would call them psychopaths. There is no doubt in my mind that these radical Islamists are seriously mentally ill.

      “There is no doubt in my mind that these radical Islamists are seriously mentally ill.”

      There is nothing ‘radical’ about the killing or the method of killing performed by Muslims; they are simply following their religious tradition/teaching.

      The real Islamic radicals are the ones who desire to live in peace, to reform their religion and abandon such barbaric practices.

      Re: seriously mentally ill – I think it more cultish and curable.

        Julie’s right

        It’s not a mental illness…

        It’s just barbaric primitive RELIGIOUS beliefs…

        It’s the ULTIMATE expression of why I keep saying that the very concept of religion, ANY RELIGION is the single biggest evil that mankind has faced in the last several thousand years….

        It’s based on nothing more than fear of the unknown… And unscrupulous second raters with massive inferiority complexes for untold generations, have capitalized on the people’s natural fear of the tribe on the other side of the hill (that wants to come to their village to steal their food and rape their women), in order to achieve power over the people…

        “Give your offerings unto me, and I will tell the gods to protect you !”

        From the days of the earliest witch doctors, to the present, it’s all been a gigantic shakedown game, that’s NO different, when you get right down to it, then the old protection rackets that Obama’s predecessors in Chicago used to to run in Chicago a few generations back….

          While I Agree with many of Swemsons post and even enjoy some of his humor I will not participate in this discussion. If you do not understand the difference in the teachings of Jesus and the killer and pedophile Mohammed then I can not explain it to you and you do not wish to understand but I find it is insulting to compare my faith and church to the murderous thugs that worship death and consume the blood of helpless victims and refuse to emerge from the seventh century. My church does not call for the death of any nation or people we are concerned with feeding the sick and finding medical treatment for them. We are not planning to blow up any buses or hotels or to cut off anyones head. I also believe the approximately 80% of this country that profess a belief in God are not planning these kind of actions as well. I will comment no further on this subject.

            No need to Jack….

            Your anger shows how passionate people get when the subject turns to religion…

            I wasn’t comparing YOUR religion to Islam… I was arguing against ALL religion.

            When the protestants were fighting the catholics in northern Ireland, neither side was beheading people, but they weren’t shy about maiming and killing people with bombs…

            My point, which I’ve often repeated in these blogs is that ALL forms of religion are a detriment to mankind’s development, and especially dangerous due to the way it separates people and causes wars bigotry and hate…

            You just got irate because you feel that your god is better than their god… and that thinking has been responsible for more murder, misery and mayhem in the history of mankind, than anything…else…

            Watch this video… I’m certain that you’ll find it fascinating
