William Wallace, BraveHeart

Wallace’s words to live by:

Dico Tibi Verum, Libertas Optima Rerum:
Nunquam Servili Sub Nexu Vivito, Fili

Translation: My Son, Freedom is best, I tell thee true, of all things to be won. Then never live within the Bond of Slavery.

~ “SEE? THE LEFT IS FAR BETTER than the right any day, any time! The racist haters and their neo-fascist minions support and donate to those bloviators Ezra, and Steyn, and that harpy Shaidle and all their well-deserved lawsuits. We’re just balancing the scales.”

Really? Really really?

So you find some guy, lefties– on an official UN list as a terror-supporter, right? Man barred from entering Canada. So you.. support him, and raise cash to fly him here anyway, with “Project Fly Home“.

Isn’t that morally reprehensible, and possibly illegal? Could these proud Leftards be any more useful idiots in the current battles, without actually joining AL-Q and moving to Waziristan themselves? “Omar Khadr– Al-Q killer; Mahar Arar.. sinister links? No problem– we like ’em!”

Note, they’re not supporting women or Christians in Jihad/ Sharia nations who really need money and support, or imprisoned Iranian student activists, but this guy. Nor do we see these guys demanding that actual terrorists, like that old guy in Brampton— Mahmoud Mohammad Issa Mohammad— who was ordered deported 21 years ago?

Mahmoud Mohammad Issa Mohammad, a convicted terrorist, stand outside his home in Brantford, Ontario

Here’s the list of flakes and terror-supporter supporters.. including: John Baglow, writer – (none other than lefty blogger Dr. Dawg); Richard Moon, Professor, (HRC Review guy); anti-Israel activist Sophie Schoen; a $400 donation by David Orchard… professors, some CUPW guy, lots of interesting info there.

Justice must be done in a timely manner– but given the number of ‘sympathetic cases’ recently released from Gitmo who have gone back to full-time Jihad, despite being Miss Congeniality whilst in U.S. custody, can’t we say that some folks have good reasons for misrepresenting themselves whilst under duress?

See? He really likes his kid!

A Crisis Of Yoots

UK jihadist used to be the life of the party.

~ ITEM: “They were brought up and educated in England but, although many live on benefits, they admit their loyalty is not to this country but to Islam. They want the UK to be an Islamic state, with sharia law and women in burkas”.

~ ITEM: Michael Coren: powerful Islamic groups detest the countries they call home.

~ ITEM: Australia: His Eminence Cardinal Pell believes West now scared of criticising Islam.

~ ITEM: The Death of the Grown-Up Church, by: Diana West; Christianity Under Fire: Why Fewer People Identify With The Faith.


~ YOUTH BRING ENERGY, CHOICES, AND CHANGE to life, and young men and women are potential world-changers. In the West, we forget that many great men and women of the past were youngish people when making their careers and sometimes radical choices; Mary the Mother of Jesus a young teenager when she said yes to God’s gift of a child; many saints and martyrs of the church were in their teens and twenties. The ancient and mediaeval worlds had a lot of scope for young people making a life. Part of our society was once geared to allowing children and youth the protection and opportunity to make the most of themselves. Now we speak of children as environmentally and financially demanding lifestyle choices.

Part of what grips the Islamic world is a crisis of youth and choices. Imagine the usual dictatorship. Will you drown yourself in pleasure? or get super-religious?Join the military or secret police or government? You’re not free to make many choices, change your faith, or openly speak your mind. The freedoms we take for granted and abuse and whine about in the West are not the freedom of most of the Middle East (except Israel). The brightest and best and most passionate leave their homeland, with all the costs that implies.

The young men we see ranting at TV screens and in our midst in the West are making the choice allowed them by a repressive totalitarian Islam: as much a prison of the spirit, as of nations or tribes or peoples. For a passionate young Muslim in today’s environment, jihadism is a toxic but tempting choice, given the options. So the life of the party guy switches suddenly to a “Death To America” guy; so the rich fop St. Francis said no to the wealth and pleasure and privilege of his day and chose a world-changing monastic way. We forget that much of the now-Islamic Middle East was Christian: Asia Minor, Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Arabia, Mesopotamia, and even parts of Persia, and Armenia. Now, to return to that faith– or desire a church with a steeple and a bell and no government oppression in most of those same lands– is to risk death, persecution, sorrow for your family, loss of freedoms or jobs, threats of jihad against you personally.

In a strange way, the ciris of no-faith in the West is complementary to the crisis of repressive faith in the Islamic world. Our faith has grown soft under freedom and Leviathan; the Islamic world needs a faith that allows for freedom and faith; individuality and conformity; a true freedom of the spirit and completion of the self that comes from serving God, who has shared our life, and shares his divine life with us through his passion and resurrection. Because we are all tainted with Marxism, we tend only to see religion as private and opiate-like. To Marx we respond that his false faith in the people’s revolution was the opiate, and has oppressed more people and led to more deaths than all the crusades or jihads or pogroms ever have.

The Christian Faith is the root and culmination of Roman Law, Greek thought and drama, and Hebrew Spirituality. If it dies in the West, we lose the root of freedom, and find arbitrary power and utopianisms spring up to try and replace it. That is the poisonous fruit of the French and all subsequent revolutions. The Islamic lands await that re-inheritance, which was stripped away from them by the armies of Islam and Muhammed the Despoiler. From their recovery of the faith of their mediaeval ancestors, they can find the root of freedom under the true God which will truly renew their societies and individuals.

As long as we offer Muslim youth in the West only a disembowelled Christianity or arid agnosticism or flaccid political correctness, it just will not do. Their choice then will be for the exciting lies and clarity of radicalized Islam, before which Western authorities seem powerless and cowardly. It’s a crusade (which we’ve damned and outlawed); it’s a world-changing choice (which we’ve forbidden in conformity, and communtarianism); it’s better than lying beneath the boot of a dictator at home, or following feeble fools in the West, who can’t be bothered to see what’s happening right in front of them, or to defend what they should rightly remember are the Western faith and principles.

We apparently despise ourselves.. why should those who want to take our stuff and replace us not despise us, too? A great civilization is not conquered from outside, until it has begun to destroy itself from within.

I’m not agreeing with Jihad, here, but laying plain the spiritual choices which perhaps underlie the crisis for Muslim and Western young people to find no ‘there’ there when they seek to launch out and choose something good and true and which will make a difference. Secularity or utopia is not true freedom, just as Jihadism is spiritual slavery. ~

“[G]oing back to the beginning of Islam, one finds Muhammed himself—the model Muslim, against whose standard all the faithful must be judged. And where Christianity has a Christ who turns the other cheek and gives himself over to be crucified, Islam has a Prophet who makes war—in self-defense, arguably, but with a glad heart, a warlike spirit and a knowledge that Allah is on his side. It is that example, that spirit of war, that flung the early Islamic empires outward to the corners of the earth, that spirit that inspired militant Muslims down through the centuries—a spirit that divides the world into the House of Islam and the House of Unbelief, and declares irrevocable enmity between them.”

~ Ross Douthat ~

~ SAD TO SAY, it looks like Ridley Scott’s somewhat ahistorical hit movie ‘Gladiator‘ was a remix of the semi-historical 1964 not-so-much-a-hit The Fall of The Roman Empire (starring Sir Alec Guinness, Sophia Loren, Christopher Plummer, and the usual Brit suspects of big-budget 60s movies). Worst of all, despite goofy editing, odd soundtrack, wooden dialogue, in many places it’s much better than Gladiator– even if the overall effect is still a curate’s egg “Rotten, but parts of it were excellent!” ~
