Accept Islamic Terror As The New Normal?

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Nonia Darwish via The Gatestone Institute,

  • "The use of terror under this doctrine [Targhib wal tarhib, "luring and terrorizing"] is a legitimate sharia obligation." — Salman Al Awda, mainstream Muslim sheikh, on the Al Jazeera television show "Sharia and Life".
  • Part of the tarhib or "terrorizing" side of this doctrine is to make a cruel example of those who do not comply with the requirements of Islam. That is the reason Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, and entities such as ISIS, intentionally hold ceremonial public beheadings, floggings, and amputation of limbs.
  • Islamic jihad has always counted on people in conquered lands eventually to yield, give up and accept terrorism as part of life, similar to natural disasters, earthquakes and floods.

After terror attacks, we often hear from Western media and politicians that we must accept terrorist attacks as the "new normal."

For Western citizens, this phrase is dangerous.

Islam's doctrine of jihad, expansion and dawah (Islamic outreach, proselytizing) rely heavily on the use of both terror and luring. Targhib wal tarhib is an Islamic doctrine that means "seducing (luring) and terrorizing" as a tool for dawah, to conquer nations and force citizens to submit to Islamic law, sharia. It amounts to manipulating the instinctive parts of the human brain with extreme opposing pressures of pleasure and pain -- rewarding, then severely punishing -- to brainwash people into complying with Islam.

Most ordinary Muslims are not even aware of this doctrine, but Islamic books have been written about it. Mainstream Muslim sheikhs such as Salman Al Awda have discussed it on Al Jazeera TV. On a show called "Sharia and Life," Al Awda recommended using extremes "to exaggerate... reward and punishment, morally and materially... in both directions". "The use of terror under this doctrine,"' he said, "is a legitimate sharia obligation."

People in the West think of terror as something that Islamic jihadists inflict on non-Muslims, and it is. But terror is also the mechanism for ensuring compliance within Islam. Under Islamic law, jihadists who evade performing jihad are to be killed. Terror is thus the threat that keeps jihadists on their missions, and that make ordinary Muslims obey sharia.

An online course for recruiting jihadists contains this description:

"Individual Dawa depends on eliciting emotional responses from recruits (and building a personal relationship). Abu 'Amr's approach illustrates a recruitment concept called al-targhib wa'l-tarhib, which is a carrot-and-stick technique of extolling the benefits of action while explaining the frightening costs of inaction. The concept was introduced in the Qur'an and is discussed by many Islamic thinkers exploring the best way to call people to Islam (several scholars, for example, have written books titled al-targhib wa'l-tarhib). According to Abu 'Amr, recruiters should apply the concept throughout the recruitment process, but emphasize the benefits of action early in the process and the costs of inaction later."

In other words, recruiters of jihadists should start by emphasizing the "good stuff" first, the "lure" -- the future glory, supremacy and fulfillment of every lustful wish, such as virgins in heaven. Later, they should threaten the recruits with "terror" and shame -- the consequence if they fail to participate in jihad.

Part of the tarhib or "terrorizing" side of this doctrine is to make a cruel example of those who do not comply with the requirements of Islam. That is the reason Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, and entities such as ISIS, intentionally hold ceremonial public beheadings, floggings, and amputation of limbs. Countries such as Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey are more discrete, but they tolerate and support honor killings; killing apostates; beating women and children, and torture and murder in their jails. The doctrine of targhib and tarhib is alive and well, not just in Islamic theocracies but also in the so-called "moderate" Muslim countries.

Islam has been using these "pleasure and pain" brainwashing techniques, and cruel and unusual punishment, from its inception and until today. While the Bible -- the Western Judeo-Christian tradition -- is in harmony with, and nurtures, kindness in human nature, Islam does the opposite: it uses the human instincts for self-preservation and survival to break the people's will and brainwash them into slavish obedience.

Like the majority of Muslims, I never heard of this foundational Islamic doctrine when I was growing up in Egypt, but have felt the impact of this doctrine on my life -- in every aspect of Islamic culture; in Islamic preaching, in my Islamic family relations; in how Islamic governments operate and how people of authority, in general, treat the people under them.

The Islamic doctrine of "lure and terror" has produced a culture of toxic extremes: distrust and fear, pride and shame, permission to lie ("taqiyya"), and rejecting taking responsibility for one's actions.

Having lived most of my life under Islam, I am sad to say that people the West calls "moderate Muslims" are frequently, in fact, citizens who have learned to live with and accept terror as normal. For centuries, many have made excuses for terror, condemned victims of terror, remained silent or equivocal, and have even compromised with the terrorists to survive. The Islamic culture in which I lived looked the other way when women were beaten. When girls were honor-murdered, the question was "what did she do?" instead of "how could that be?" When Christians were killed and persecuted, many blamed the Christians for their own persecution at the hands of Muslims. The normal Islamic response to terror became: "None of my business."

And now the Islamic doctrine of Targhib wal Tarhib, has moved to the West and aims at changing Western humanistic culture. It would replace respect for human rights, caring for one's neighbor and the values of freedom and peace, with the values of bondage, terror, tyranny and fear.

Islamic jihad has always counted on people in conquered lands eventually to yield, give up and accept terrorism as part of life, similar to natural disasters, earthquakes and floods.

It did not take long for the Islamic doctrine of Targhib wal Tarhib to work on the psyche of Western leaders and media, who are now telling us to live with it as the "new normal." Islam counts on turning everyone into "moderate" Muslims who will eventually look the other way when terror happens to the person next to you.

Enlightening article, but there is absolutely no such thing as a "Judeo-Christian value", much less multiple ones. Jews have almost identical doctrine to Muslims, just with a greater emphasis on sneakiness and lying.

That said, this revelation about luring and terrorizing is truly frightening. Islam must be wiped off of the face of the Earth. I had previously thought it could simply be contained, but this is too dangerous. They must all convert, or they must all die. With this, I believe Islam is a greater threat even than Judaism, which at least accounts for their own best interests rather than having the spread of their ideology take primacy.

"Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies [sic] that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive"

You see goyim, without vibrant cultural enrichment, your countries will not survive.

My response: If the title is true, then we are definitely near the end of the road on GOD's Prophetic Roadmap. I would like to believe that we are NOT at the end.

I have believed for some years now that there was an intent on the part of Western leaders to convert the world to Islam. Marry this to the ecumenical push of modern Catholisim under the current pope... the so called move to Chrislam... and you have a single world religion that teaches the masses obedience to their masters... a self regulating, self policing population of children, constantly looking over their shoulders while staring over the shoulder of the person in front of them.

The world's so called elite (elite= scum sucking sludge) have for the longest time desired a religion geared to worship of the state. Islam is exactly that... Allah is merely a euphemism for the ruling class...

In light of this the recent comments from European leadership that Europeans should except terror as the new normal makes perfect sense.

Fuck Islam. It is a made-up fucking cult created by a psycopathic warlord during the Middle Ages in order to exploit people passing through the various trade routes. Nothing good has come from Islam.

To quote the author: "Islam has been using these "pleasure and pain" brainwashing techniques, and cruel and unusual punishment, from its inception and until today. "

The West must not submit. Not now. Not ever.

"And now the Islamic doctrine of Targhib wal Tarhib, has moved to the West and aims at changing Western humanistic culture. It would replace respect for human rights, caring for one's neighbor and the values of freedom and peace, with the values of bondage, terror, tyranny and fear.

Islamic jihad has always counted on people in conquered lands eventually to yield, give up and accept terrorism as part of life, similar to natural disasters, earthquakes and floods."

Great insight on the part of this author. Islam means submission.

Look, this might happen on the East and West coast, but it would take an Act of Congress (see what I did there) to have the flyover states accept terror as a way of life. We can debate how "effective" Trump has been, but since Trump's election, I have seen more 3% shirts than I ever thought possible. People are waking up to the fact that life is one or two steps away from becoming hell in a handbasket.

Perfect example, my dad, who is a Baby Boomer, has multiple professional degrees, straight Republican ticket voter, Roth IRA, the whole 9 yards. This last week he had an epiphany. You can't blame him though, the world he grew up in was a different place, where the Elites didn't run every game in town. For the most part, he always took the world at face value. Super interesting to watch a him actually contemplate some of the ideas that are frequented on ZH.

i call this bullshit

everyone has a breaking point,currently nothing is happening in england,germany,sweden and other countries but their will be a point when these people will say enough is enough and let us fight back.

let us look what happened  in germany during the 1930s.the europeans cornered the germans and punished them for world war 1.the germans were looking for a saviour and out came adolf hitler with the nazi regime,he told the germans what they wanted to hear and rose to power.

with more terrorist bombings it looks like the europeans will again look for a saviour and history could repeat itself

Terrorism has been part of the normal since the 70s.

Modern islamic terrorism -inspired by religion foremost- has been happening since 94 in France, but it isn't anything new. The 74-86 period was marked with numerous incidents related to either the far-left or Palestine. (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents_in_France).

The situation in the UK is similar, the last five decades have seen constant acts of terrorism, mostly by Irish republicans till the turn of the century, and more recently by people of islamic inspirations. (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents_in_Great_Britain)

And you can go on, the master list on wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents) stopped listing individual incidents from the 70s: terrorism is a fact of life today. A lot less common in the western world, but it is unfortunately normal today.

Islamic terrorism was started by Mohammad and continues throughout it's history.

The breaking point has come too late. There are too many invaders, and the people are disarmed. They will have to be liberated via external military action.

A CRUSADE.

Some of the Tylers have spent a significant portion of their lives in the financial industry, which caters to our basest nature and inevitably turns those without a strong sense of responsiblity for their fellow man into abject psychopaths with plenty of positive reinforcement. It's much easier to fear and hate something than it is to try and understand it, and many regular readers wouldn't have it any other way.

The book is a short read and basically says that you submit to Islam, pay the tax or die. Take your pick.

This is NOT alarmist article, it is the truth of it, and  very important that everybody 'gets it' so we can get over this fallacy that if you hug a ME muslim they will leave you alone.  You are not muslim, you are the legitimate enemy and have an obligation to thwart you.

I see we have some Snowflakes here, who don't get it, and want to accept terrorism as a part of life, well until their wife or sister gets stabbed 20 times, as a ME muslims obligation to administer terror on the west.  I guess they are comfortable in their little room with their computers, pontificating of how easy everything is, and why worry.

You're much more likely to be killed by a cop than a terrorist. People who get lost in fearing their own Shadow miss the significance that our government has shifted the productive economy into a terrorist manufacturing business, and terrorism is a tactic that will continue to be used against our population long after the Security Stake bankrupts us.

The muzzies are winning their caliphate in the west

- Westerners live in constant fear of islamic terror
- Western democratic elections/processes and other public events are often postponed or cancelled due to islamic terror
- Western countries are literally being bankrupted by massive new anti-terror security costs, with questionable results
- Muslim population growth via mass legal/illegal immigration, and their meteoric birth rates, are decimating indigenous non-muslim populations
- Western countries are accepting Sharia law as being a parallel legal system
- Western countries are making it illegal to criticize Islam
- Western countries now accept islamic terrorism as the new normal

Just sayin'

"One of the three jihadists who murdered revellers in central London on Saturday had been reported to the anti-terror police on at least two occasions, it has been claimed.

A former friend of the terrorist, who was shot dead by police along with two accomplices, claimed he had been radicalised while watching YouTube videos and said he contacted the authorities ­after becoming concerned over his friend’s extremist views.

A neighbour also claimed she had contacted police in Barking, east London, after the suspect tried to convert her children to Islam and radicalise them. The man is not being named at the request of the police.

The former friend claimed he contacted police after comments the man made about other previous attacks. But he said the authorities had failed to act and take action despite evidence of increasingly extremist views."

There would be no terrorism if the Bildeberg/Spectre group did not want it. It is a necessary tool to get legislation passed and to start wars on false pretenses. By conquest or consent they will get what they want.
