Tommy Robinson, Invoking Gladstone, Churchill, and the Koran (9:5), Tries Gamely to Educate Dhimmi Islamo-Ignoramus Piers Morgan

Please watch the segment below of, allegedly, a 6/20/17 “interview exchange” between courageous and knowledgeable British Islamo-realist Tommy Robinson, and preening Islamo-ignoramus media personality, Piers Morgan.

Tommy tries gamely to pierce Piers’ uninformed hubris by invoking two iconic British Prime Ministers, William E. Gladstone, and Winston Churchill, as well as quoting the central Koranic jihad verse (9:5), from sura (chapter) 9, i.e., verse 5. But in the words of the great chronicler of Soviet Communist genocidal killings and purges, Robert Conquest, Piers Morgan, and his equally self-assured if witless female accomplice proved themselves, “impenetrable by fact.”

Gladstone, brandishing a copy of what Piers Morgan obsequiously characterized as a “holy book,” the Koran, declaimed in the House of Commons, “As long as a copy of this accursed book survives there can be no justice in the world.” (cited here, p. 136). Reflecting on Islam’s deleterious societal influence during a sojourn in an Ottoman Muslim controlled area of then Albania (Filiates), Gladstone further observed,

The whole impression is most saddening: it is all indolence, decay, stagnation: the image of God seems as if it were nowhere.

Winston Churchill, who had years of direct experience with Islam in its natural state while serving in The Sudan and Afghanistan, equated Piers Morgan’s declared “holy book,” the Koran, with Mein Kampf.  On p. 50 of From War to War, the first part of the first volume of his 6-part Second World War, Churchill proclaimed Hitler’s Mein Kampf to be, “…the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message.” 

Nearly a half century earlier, Churchill, wrote in his original 1897 dispatches, and 1898 compilation, “The Story of the Malakand Field Force: An Episode of Frontier War,”

[T]he Mahommedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance. It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since, its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness… Civilization is face to face with militant Mohammedanism. When we reflect on the moral and material forces arrayed, there need be no fear of the ultimate issue, but the longer the policy of half measures is adhered to the more distant the end of the struggle will be. An interference more galling than complete control, a timidity more rash than recklessness, a clemency more cruel than the utmost severity, mark our present dealings 

Consistent with his defining clarity, and understanding of totalitarianism, Churchill would later describe the seamless ideological and historical connections between Lenin, Marx, Islam’s second “Rightly Guided” Caliph, Umar (d. 644), and the creed’s founding prophet, and jihadist ideologue, Muhammad:

Lenin was to Karl Marx what Omar [Caliph Umar] was to Mahomet [Muhammad]. He translated faith into acts. He devised the practical methods by which the Marxian theories could be applied in his own time. He invented the Communist plan of campaign. He issued the orders, he prescribed the watchwords, he gave the signal and he led the attack.

Finally, the Koranic verse Tommy Robinson read aloud at the conclusion of the “interview,” while being talked over by his rude hosts, Koran 9:5, is a pivotal verse in the Koran’s “final revelation”, sura or chapter 9, a compilation of eternal war declarations against living peoples—Jews, Christians, “pagans,” i.e., Buddhists, Hindus, and all the world’s animists—not extinct, ancient tribes. Here is an authoritative English translation of the section of 9:5 Mr. Robinson read, above the din:

Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun (non-Muslim “idolators”) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush.

This bellicose jihad genocide declaration—like the entire chapter from which it derives—serves to “abrogate,” or cancel, so-called “earlier Koranic revelations” from a militarily weaker phase of Islam’s evolution, [See for example, from Islam’s doctrine of Koranic abrogation An-Nāsikh -wal- Mansūkh, by Ibn Khuzyamh, which states 113 [“more pacific”] verses are abrogated by the Sword verse (9: 5)]
