The Vast Knowledge of Your Local Library

We are always talking about the Infidels, not us Islamocognitive Infidels, that are ignorant about Islam. They have only the false MSM/PC/MC Islamic education program and need to get smart about what is going on. One resource for the inquiring mind that wants to know more about Islam, that is free and has abundant 'booty' beyond their sometimes poorly stocked shelves is your LIBRARY, more specifically, your library's Inter Library Loan (ILL) service.

I don't know about you, but the library where I live is excellent. While they don't have a lot of Islamic books, and certainly sweet 'novels' like Why I Am A Muslim by Asma Gull Hasan and the insipid Silent No More by liberal former Congressman Paul Findley will likely grace the shelves (section 280 to 300 non fiction), they should be checked out and studied. The few critical works you find like Islam Unveiled or a Bernard Lewis book should definitely be checked out and read, the real resource is the ILL, the Inter Library Loan system. If your library's ILL service works like mine, they can get you ANY book on loan for up to 2 weeks. It takes anywhere from 1 week to 3 weeks for a book to be available for pickup. You can only have two outstanding at any one time. And it's FREE. Now how can you complain about that!

I never needed ILL for less than popular books about Islam before Islam came along to screw up the West. Since discovering this ILL service, I have read Eurabia as noted in a posting below. I now have The Arab Mind by Raphael Patai and will review that here in the future. But here's the real kicker. Today, I have ordered Brigadier S.K. Malik's The Quranic Conception of War, foreword by General Zia ul-Haq (Delhi: Adam Publishers and Dist, 1992. Now me and the ILL staff had a hard time finding it, but here's the title in the US: S.K. Malik, The Quranic Concept of Power."
The distributor is different also but that is the US English title. For those who don't know Malik, he led the Pakistanis in the jihad against India. The man totally hates the Hindis, you know, pagan kafir, worse than Christians. Here is what General Zia ul-Haq, who also became President of Pakistan, and was Malik's military colleague in the Jihad against India, wrote in the foreword:

“Terror struck into the hearts of the enemy is not only a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved… Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is the decision we wish to impose upon him.” Foreword - Ul-Haq to book Pakistani Brigadier General S.K. Malik, The Quranic Concept of Power (War).

Sounds like something our Military should make required reading, no?

If you want to read this, here is the list of the 17 libraries in the US that have The Quranic Concept of Power (War). NC - Duke Univ Libr, CA - Univ of Cal, Berkely and Univ of Cal, Los Angeles, DC - Lib of Congress, HI - Univ of Hawaii at Manda, IA - Univ of Iowa Libr, MA - Boston Pub Lib, MD - John Hopkins Univ, MI - Univ of Mich Libr, MN - Univ of Mn, Minn., NY - Cornell Univ, and Institute Advan Studies, World Relations, and NY Pub Libr Res Libr., PA - Univ of Penn, TX - Univ of Texas - Austin, WA - Univ of Wash Libr, WI - Univ of Wis, Madison, Gen Libr Sys, In England, EU - Cambridge Univ. Give your ILL a try.

This Quranic Concept of Power (War) is THE war manual for all that murdering and terrorizing that is going on in the Qur'an, practical advice,you might say. It is used in the Pakistani military and the ISI and is probably on the top shelf beside the Qur'an at Bin Laden's cave.

I'll review it and post about it in the future.

Finally, I want to point out how these two books , Why I Am A Muslim and Silent No More, that are fixtures at many small libraries reflect muslim taqiyya of a Muslim TaqiyyaMaster and the 'useful idiot' syndrome that Congressman Findley takes on so well. In Why I Am A Muslim, Asma Gull Hasan says this about dhimmitude:

"Of course, at times, individual Muslim rulers have persecuted religious minorities. But if we judged Islam by the failure of individual Muslims to follow it, we would ignore that as long as 1400 years ago, Muhammad established a legal frmework for protecting people who were different. Similarly, pagan religions that date from before the founding of Islam are still practiced in some islamic countries including Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan, and were not forcibly eradicated.

Under Islamic law, religious minorities could be made dhimmis, which in Arabic roughly means "protected subjects." Once given this status, a religious minority could not be attacked by a Muslim. As the Muslim empire grew, so did the number of dhimmis. Non-Muslims living in Muslim-controled land were required by Islam to be protected by the Muslim stewards. Muslims were proud to protect the minorities who were not required to fight on behalf of the state, and even avenged wrongs done to Dhimmis. Early Islamic rulers find almost a macho sense of pride in protecting the Dhimmis.

One of the core principles of Islam is justice. In Islam, everyone deserves justice, and everyone must reasonably enforce and promote the cause of justice including protecing the dhimmis. Protecting dhimmis inherently meant practicing Islam. The dhimmis paid a tax to the protectors in exchange for the protection they received and practiced their own religions freely."

So, you pay the mafia jizya 'protection money' and you get to live and pray to your infidel God. Feel better? The Arab mind of this 'liberated' American Muslim Asma Gull Hasan, dressed so stylish and American on that cover, has just told you how it is good to be a dhimmi for all you Infidel doubters out there.

As for Findley, what an awful book. It's all these mushy interviews with Muslims like Nihad Awad. Creepy. This syrupy novella urging Muslims to get into politics was released about the time of 9/11. Sweet justice, I say. Oh yeah, somewhere in there, Findley says he never read the Qur'an. Gee, after all that research? Sounds like a 'useful idiot' to me. What say you?

For counterbalance to Why I Am A Muslim, maybe you should read Why I Am Not a Muslim by Ibn Warraq. If your local library doesn't have it, which is likely, put the ILL to good use. To counterbalance Silent No More, I recommend any of the books at the JihadWatch site book list.

Happy Reading Trails

Here in Dar-al-Islam, the truth is something to be feared and controlled. Robert Spencer's works, for example, are all banned here in Malaysia. So the local library is not an option for anyone trying to reveal the nasty truths at the heart of Islam. Indeed, for an expat like me, the net is the only source of unvarnished truth and information.

More and more infidels are catching on, albeit slowly. Will the knowledge come in time?

John Sobieski said...

AI, is it illegal to order a book internationally and have it mailed to you in Malaysia, or is that too risky? If it is risky, I think that tells volumes about Islam. NO dissenting opinion.

Pedestrian Infidel,
You've made a good point about Inter Library Loan, a valuable tool if one's library is lacking in materials.

In part because of CAIR's Library Project, many public libraries are stocked with apologetics and with whitewashed material

And American Infidel makes a good point. In spite of having Yahoo as server, American friend in Saudi cannot view certain web sites, including Jihad Watch, so I have to copy-and-paste entire articles of importance.

american_infidel said...

At least I can view sites like Jihadwatch here in Malaysia on the net--the net here is not censored, which is wonderful.

As to the question about ordering a book internationally, my understanding is that it's not illegal, but if the book ordered is on the banned list and inspected by Malaysian customs, the shipment gets stopped and returned to sender.

I thought censorship in Egypt was outrageous, like the time I got a Newsweek Mag. from the local street vendor, took it home, and had the pages spill out on the table because someone somewhere had taken out every page that used the word "God," quite a few given that the cover story was on--yeah, ok.

But! It gets worse: Syria had the Internet avialable in the village I stayed at. All I had to do was round up four police men to monitor me while I checked my e-mail. Did I have to pay for their services? Oh, why do I go on....

And then, Iraq, after first having to go crazy on a giant thug who came to "interview" me, and then bribing my in,those bastards-- well, there was no Internet, there were no papers, and my radio ws jambed.

Here, again on the road in a foreign nation, I'm choking on the p.c. everwhere I go. Too much information, most of it vile rubbish from the state run media.

But I do have some access to the used bookshops and ocassionally to abebooks for things good and second-hand.

They get you coming and going. Thanks for the Internet. And thanks for the link. If I can figure how to do it I'll copy your idea.

Yalla, Dag
