A Crucial Question: Revisited

A note from Radarsite: I am reposting this earlier Radarsite article in response to Stop the ACLU's John Ray's excellent and thought-provoking December 14 article "Assumptions in Moral debate". http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2008/12/14/assumptions-in-moral-debate/

In response to a recent Radarsite article our good friend and fellow blogger Findalis began her comments with this important but unfortunately still controversial statement:

Findalis said...
I am reminded that this war is a war
between the forces of Good against the forces of Evil.

To properly defend ourselves against this ruthless onslaught of the Bloody Religion of Peace we must first and foremost accept the existence of Evil. For some of our delusional friends on the left this seems to be a concept that is totally foreign to them. All wars, they hasten to explain, are merely the selfish actions of self-interested nation-states competing for world hegemony. All the participants have equally meritorious claims. In these great global conflicts there is no such thing as right or wrong, just differing perspectives.

If this view of our world is correct then Islam has as much moral standing as Christianity or Judaism, and is just as valid a form of society as a democracy.

How can we prosecute the GWOT and not believe in the existence of Evil?
In response to this question I am reposting a previously published article, which is I believe worth revisiting. In my opinion, there can be no better experts to answer this weighty question. - rg


A Crucial Question: Two Important Answers

Sir John Keegan:
"The world's preeminent military historian."

Professor Gerhard Weinberg:
"One of the world's foremost scholars on
Hitler and Nazi Germany."

Recently Radarsite had occasion to pose the following question to both Sir John Keegan and Prof. Gerhard Weinberg:
"Considering the number of revisionist histories which have been published in these past few decades, attempting to depict the Second World War as merely a morally-neutral conflict between nation-states over competing self-interests, do you still believe that that war was indeed a battle between Good and Evil?"

Both men answered with an unequivocal, Yes. Despite all of the intervening arguments to the contrary, both of these acknowledged experts still viewed WWII as a battle between the forces of Good and the forces of Evil -- although, Prof. Weinberg added that the forces of Good had had to make temporary common cause with another force of Evil (the Soviet Union) in order to achieve its ultimate victory.

Why is this an important question today?

In our present PC society, where almost every moral stance has been eroded and weakened by those currently-popular concepts of moral equivalency, it is crucial for this beleaguered country of ours to accept the fact that Evil does exist. And, to believe that that is what we are currently fighting against; and that, as flawed as we may be, we are indeed the forces of Good.



  1. Again I will state that the war between Islam and the West is a war between Good and Evil.

    For one to accept this one first must read both the Koran and the Bible. Seeing the differences between the 3 major religions of the Western world, one discovers that Islam is based on War, Death and Hatred. There are no 10 Commandments in Islam, there is no Love thy Neighbor in Islam. There is only war and hatred in Islam.

  2. I believe in the battles between good and evil. Any government believing that people have no right to free will is evil.

  3. If evil can be denied then what is there to prevent evil acts from spreading?

    Even a young child has a balance of good or evil intent it is just the fine tuning through learning that needs to be adjusted.

  4. «Hitler wants a united Eid»


  5. In Islam, Findalis, love yer neighbor is not a function of proximity, its a function of confraternity. A Muslim is commanded to love his Muslim neighbor and fight his Kuffar neighbors.

    The fact that Islam is evil should be evident to anyone by virtue of its mercenary mission. 8:1, 8:41, 33:27 & 48:20 should make that clear to anyone who can and will read & comprehend plain English.

    Moe said that his provision was under the shade of his spear.

    Bukhari Ch 61 # 2756: ...It is mentioned from Ibn 'Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, "My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.

    Dig up Bewley's translation of that hadith, and you'll find a link to another in which Moe hunts down,cooks and eats a wild ass. But he did not hunt equines for a living, he plundered camel caravans. If you have any doubts, read The Sealed Nectar.

    Take another look at the conjunctive clauses in the hadith. He got his living with his spear and he ruined anyone who disobeyed him.

    If any doubt remains, download EgregiousAyat.chm and read the contents of the table of Egregious Ahadith. Bukhari 4.52.220 is explicit, others amplify it.

    For the final clue, read the extortion letters found at http://www.alquraan.net/letters/letters_2.html and match them up with the attacks on the Khaibar oasis & Persia.
