Islam’s ‘Rule of Numbers’

Print Friendly

Fox News  Translations: Danish 

Last week in London, two Muslim men shouting jihad’s ancient war-cry, “Allahu Akbar” beheaded a British soldier with a cleaver—in a busy intersection and in broad daylight.  They boasted in front of passersby and asked to be videotaped.

With blood still on his hands, and his decapitated victim still on the street, the jihadi still managed to go into “grievance” mode in front of the camera.

As surreal as this event may seem, Islamic beheadings are not uncommon in the West, including the U.S.  In 2011, a Pakistani-American who helped develop “Bridges TV”—a station “designed to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims”—beheaded his wife.  In Germany in 2012, another Muslim man beheaded his wife in front of their six children—again while hollering “Allahu Akbar.

Beheading non-Muslim “infidels” in the Islamic world is especially commonplace: in Yemen a “sorceress” was beheaded by the “Supporters of Sharia”; in Indonesia, three Christian girls on their way to school were beheaded; in Syria last Christmas, U.S.-supported rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to the dogs; in Africa—Somalia, Tanzania, Mali—Christians are regularly decapitated.  (For a comprehensive picture of Christian suffering under Islam, see my new book, Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians.)

Most recently, a disturbing video surfaced from “liberated” Libya of a machete-wielding masked man hacking at the head of a captive—again, to cries of “Allahu Akbar!”

But the greater lesson of the London beheading concerns its audacity—done in broad daylight with the attackers boasting in front of cameras, as often happens in the Islamic world.

It reflects what I call “Islam’s Rule of Numbers,” a rule that expresses itself with remarkable consistency:  The more Muslims grow in numbers, the more Islamic phenomena intrinsic to the Muslim world—in this case, brazen violence against “infidels”—appear.

In the U.S., where Muslims are less than 1% of the population, London-style attacks are uncommon.  Islamic assertiveness is limited to political activism dedicated to portraying Islam as a “religion of peace,” and sporadic, but clandestine, acts of terror.

In Europe, where Muslims make for much larger minorities, open violence is common.  But because they are still a vulnerable minority, Islamic violence is always placed in the context of “grievances,” a word that pacifies Westerners.

With an approximate 10% Muslim population, London’s butcherers acted brazenly, yes, but they still invoked grievances.  Standing with bloodied hands, the murderer declared: “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone…. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying by British soldiers every day.”

Days later in Stockholm, which also has a large Muslim minority, masked rioters  destroyed 100 cars and property.  The grievance for this particular outbreak was that police earlier shot a(nother) machete-wielding “immigrant” in self-defense.

Grievances disappear when Muslims become at least 35-40% of a nation and feel capable of waging an all-out jihad, as in Nigeria, where the Muslim-majority north has been terrorizing Christians—bombing hundreds of churches and beheading hundreds of infidels.

Sudan was an earlier paradigm, when the Khartoum government slaughtered millions to cleanse Sudan of Christians and polytheists.  Historically Christian-majority Lebanon plunged into a deadly civil war as the Muslim population grew.

Once Muslims become the majority, the violence ironically wanes, but that’s because there are fewer infidels to persecute.  And what infidels remain lead paranoid, low-key existences—as dhimmis—always careful to “know their place.”

With an 85% Muslim majority, Egypt is increasingly representative of this paradigm.  Christian Copts are under attack, but not in an all-out jihad.  Rather, under the Muslim Brotherhood their oppression is becoming institutionalized, including through new “blasphemy” laws which have seen many Christians attacked and imprisoned.

Attacks on infidels finally end when Muslims become 100% of the population, as in Saudi Arabia—where all its citizens are Muslim, and churches and other non-Islamic expressions are totally banned.

Such is Islam’s Rule of Numbers.

Thus as Muslim populations continue growing in Western nations, count on growing, and brazen, numbers of attacks on infidels—beheadings and such.

Most recently in France, which holds Europe’s largest Muslim population, another European soldier was stabbed in the neck by a pious Muslim.

The question is, how long will leftist media and politicians refuse to face reality, including by propagating the false “grievance” claim, which, once Muslims reach enough numbers—as is projected for Europe—will be discarded for the full-blown jihad?

    Ray, without violating your security or your privacy, why not tell the readers about the death threats you receive merely for daring to tell the truth and write about Islam. I also write about Islam as you know Ray, and every death threat I receive is always in the name of ALLAH. The sender could really care less who I am, as far as they are concerned I insulted their god and I should be killed. now religious debates aside, since they have never spoken directly with their god, only three people have ever looked god in the face according to the Bible, Moses, Saul and David, I might ask the people who threaten how they know god is even mad at me or Ray for writing what we write. OH I GET IT; SOME OTHER HUMAN BEING SAID SO, MAYBE AN IMAM. so these people are really killing cause another human being, who doesn’t have the courage to do their own dirty work, said so. what a crock.hacking someone’s head off doesn’t make you holy, it makes you a murdering thug and i f there is a god you will burn for taking an a human life. and that my friend is the difference between people of faith and Islam; there is only one religion left in the modern world that rewards killing and murder of innocents and that is Islam. think about that for a second.

  • kenneth kelly

    I think it is only fair to point out that the immigrant shot and killed by the police in Stockholm was earlier reported to be of Portuguese origin and 69 years old (needs to be verified).

  • Max Modine

    Keep up the good fight Raymond. Max.

  • AlexanderGalt

    Thnks once again for keeping us in touch with reality.

    On the subject of beheadings, there’s a great post about how the bloodsoaked jahadi was more honest than the British prime minister. It’s called, “An Ytter Perversion of the Truth” at:

  • GuestOfGuests

    You are brave, Raymond, for you tell the truth as it is.
    Here, in France, I would get arrested for telling the truth.

    You are the voice of the unheard, of the persecuted and victimised.

    All best, dear Raymond

    The face behind the Stockholm riots is a woman named Barbara Spectre. I am amazed her name isn’t on every website about Islamofascism and islam finally realizing it’s dream, since the time of Mohammed, to make Christian Europe the “Jewel in the Crown” of Islam at some future date in time. This stealth taking over the West by vast numbers of Muslim’s immigrating to Europe, Australia, Canada and to a lesser degree the USA is in the news almost every day in acts of violence or persecution by Muslims. Barbara Spectre actually brags about her role in bringing the 3rd world, especially Muslims, to Sweden. She has the temerity to demand that Europe become multicultural through immigration from the 3rd world. Why is this evil woman being ignored by web sites and conservative’s dedicated to exposing the real meaning and intentions of Islam in our modern world which is, as it has always been, to destroy Western Christian Civilization. Is it because Barbara Spectre is an Orthodox Jew married to a rabbi who left the USA via Israel to become a rabbi at the Great Synagogue in Stockholm and upon her arrival in that Nordic country in the late 1990′s made her mission, along with Swedish leftists, to invite the 3rd world into Sweden and make it multicultural? People need to look at her interviews lectures on Youtube and see this woman’s unbelievable arrogance and hypocrisy in her role as the “mistress’ of multiculturalism in Europe. She and her husband spend their vacations in Israel where the government deports their black migrants from Africa back to their country of origin using Israeli Air force cargo planes. Barbara Spectre. A name all of us should read about and get a new look at how Orthodox Jews look at the invasion of Europe by the 3rd world. It’s racism but it’s “OK” because of who advocates it. I loath Islam but by support of Israel has vanished when I read who Ms. Spectre was and what she advocates…

    • wollfb

      Barbara Spectre does not represent the people of Israel. We despise her and her leftist friends who are trying to destroy Israel from within. Support Israeli Jews who cherish freedom and know the real dangers of Islam, the cancer on humanity.

  • Alan Williams

    Just read ‘Crucified Again.’ It should be required reading for every Western politician in the coming months. If we continue to allow Islamofascism a free hand we will all suffer massively sooner rather than later.

  • FredNerx

    “how long will leftist media and politicians refuse to face reality?” — Who says they are refusing to face reality? I believe a high number know exactly what they’re doing – they are seeding a totalitarian order which is what leftists want. They recognise that Islam is not a religion per se but a political ideology in a religious guise that allows total control of the population. Some leftists are completely willing to embrace Islam; others think that once Islam has provided the ability/excuse to do away with democratic and individual rights they will be able to put the genie back in the bottle and enjoy their socialist utopia; others are just simpletons and useful idiots.

  • knowshistory

    give it up, ray. you are trying to educate leftist fools. it cannot be done. better to teach your dog calculus. the dog will do differential equations before a leftist can recognize a 1400 year campaign of genocide as a threat.

  • Ranchman

    Thanks, Raymond. We need to hear the truth in America, the media sure isn’t going to give it to us. We need to be aware of the threat of islam when the population of muslims reaches a certain point. Does this mean we should be the ones to initiate attacks on them? No, but we need to be aware of what they’re capable of and willing to do in order to subjugate our country under sharia. Is there a war coming between muslims and all non-muslims? Yes, they have already fired the first shots. It will be up to us whether we are victorious or not over these islamic animals.

  • Ilpalazzo

    It really does prove the Yin Yang diagram/theory, doesn’t it? Except the Destructive/Dark/Angra Mainyu side plays for keeps. It’s too bad most Americans think of it as ‘just a religion’ instead of keeping it at 1% for a good reason.

  • Peter Hyatt

    I wonder how Mr. Ibrahim and others manage to stay safe. God bless their courage in proclaiming the truth about an ideology far worse than anything Hitler or Stalin dreamed of.
