The following is the (translated) text of a speech given in Czech recently by Klára Samková, a lawyer/politician/activist from the Czech Republic.
The speech is an exceedingly strong indictment of Islam. It was actually delivered in the Czech Parliament, to an audience that included a number of high-ranking Muslim dignitaries. According to Breitbart, it was as part of a conference called “Should We Be Afraid Of Islam”, organized by one of the country’s Center parties. Apparently it was not really an “anti-Islam” or even anti-immigration conference however, as there were ambassadors from Turkey and other Muslim nations there, many of whom apparently walked out during Ms. Samková’s speech.
My observations are interspersed withing the text below.

Should We Be Afraid Of Islam?
By Klára Samková
Thank you for the invitation and the opportunity to give a speech. Today’s conference is supposed to help to answer the question whether we should be afraid of Islam. My answer to the question is straightforward: we should definitely not be afraid of Islam. We should deal with it in the same way in which the European civilization has dealt with all totalitarian and inhuman regimes which it had to face during more than 2,000 years of its history. In particular, we should fight with Islam, beat it, and prevent its proliferation once and for all, just like in the case of previous monstrous ideologies, declare the very existence of Islam as a criminal act that contradicts the human naturalness, freedom, and especially the human dignity.
Because that’s exactly what Islam is, namely a system contradicting the human naturalness, freedom, and dignity.
It’s the same as Nazism, fascism, and communism used to be. It has these characteristics despite its hiding behind the mask of a religion. In reality, it is primarily a criminal (both in the sense of committing a crime and controlled by criminals) ideology and an unreformable system of governance.
Islam is hiding behind the mask of religion for two reasons. One of them are the historical circumstances surrounding the birth of Islam when only a religion was an allowed form of an ideological presentation. Even in ancient Greece it was forbidden to build philosophical constructs that were independent of the state religion, a fact that Socrates could tell us a lot about. It was even less possible to create a paradigm composed of irreligious ideas in the seventh century AD, on the very boundary of the civilized world of that time.
The second reason why Islam likes to hide behind the religious mask is its permanent, deliberate, and purposeful abuse of the Euro-American legal system and values that the civilizations built upon the Judeo-Christian foundations have converged to. There’s nothing better or more efficient than to abuse the value system of one’s enemy, especially when I don’t share that system. And that’s exactly how Islam behaves. It wants to be protected according to our tradition which it exploits in this way, while it is not willing to behave reciprocally. It relies on our traditions, it claims that the traditions are important, while behind the scenes, it is laughing at us and our system of values.
Indeed there has been proof uncovered that from its creation and outset, the Muslim Brotherhood consciously sought to take advantage of Western “Universalism” and the narrative of human rights/religious rights/etc to achieve its ends (massive Islamic immigration and the Islamization of the West). I don’t have an attribution to link to right here, but there are numerous books about the Muslim Brotherhood that are highly readable and very elucidating. Indeed in many ways we can learn from them when it comes to our struggle to defeat them (and our other enemies). Not through the aspect of taking advantage of Universalism, but rather in their strategic and operational models that take advantage of both direct action 4GW tactics used in concert with traditional political means.
Let us first see why it’s totally adequate to place Islam on par with the totalitarian regimes. Even though it calls itself a religion, it is primarily a totalitarian system of governance in which God only plays a substitutive role because the main content of Islam is nothing else than the arrangement of the state matters. As opposed to Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, or Shintoism, the heart of Islam is the law, namely the Islamic Sharia law. The law is an intrinsic and inseparable part of the Islamic ideology. It constitutes the core of the content of Islam while the rules claimed to be religious or ethical are just secondary and marginal components of the ideology. From the viewpoint of Islam, the concept of religion as a private, intimate matter of an individual is absolutely unacceptable. However, that’s exactly the principle on which today’s Christianity and the civilizations derived from it rely. It’s the private relationship of an individual towards God which is more or less mediated by one of the churches. Even those members of our civilization realm who consider themselves atheists, i.e. those who claim not to believe in God, automatically extract their attitudes to life from the Christian traditions while these traditions take the form of either folklore or cultural automatisms which makes them share the generally accepted spirit of Europe and both Americas. Again, it’s necessary to remind ourselves that this view is not only unacceptable for Islam but it is also denounced and explicitly named as a crime. Islam rejects the individual conception of faith in God and in a totalitarian way, it forbids all doubts about itself. If someone thinks that we don’t have the right to judge what is totalitarianism and hegemony and that we don’t have the right to classify Islam in this way, let me say that in a country that has had foreign rulers for 300 years and spent 48 years out of just recent 78 years in totalitarian regimes, our feelers have been trained for pattern recognition rather well and made us capable of recognizing totalitarianism immediately. We have both the right and the ability to identify it and judge it.
Islam doesn’t share the Enlightenment’s idea of the social progress associated with the future. According to Islam, the good times have already taken place – in the era of Prophet Mohammed. The best things that could have been done have already been done, the best thing that could have been written has already been written, namely the Quran. In its essence, Islam is a religion based on the book of Ecclesiastes which said a whole millennium before Prophet Mohammed:
What do people gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun? Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever.
Tamim Ansary writes about this same thing in his book West of Kabul, East of New York. He says that in Islam’s earliest days there was a spiritual war between the “Mu’Tazzalites” and the “Orthodoxy” where the former believed that men could figure out what was good and bad through reason, while the latter believed that God could will anything to be good or bad based on a whim. If such was the case, and the Orthodoxy was right, it meant that the only way for Muslims to determine what was good was to look to seventh century Arabia, where God gave “his instructions” to “his prophet” Muhammed. The Orthodoxy won this debate, and thus ever since Muslims around the world have sought to return things to how they were in 7th Century Arabia, when humanity was closest to “perfection”. This includes things like slavery and burning people alive, crucifixion, heads/hands being chopped off, etc, and this is why ISIS and Saudi Arabia and Indonesia and other Muslim nations do some or all of these things today. All very good reasons for going to war/kicking every single one of them out of Europe and never letting them step foot there again (to say no more…).
Judaism, Christianity, and the civilization that arose from them have surpassed this unjustifiable skepticism, this contempt of people for themselves. At the same moment, Islam remained a stillborn infant of gnosis, deformed into a monstrously mutated desire to blend with the Universe again, into a retarded obsessively psychopathic paranoiac vision about the exceptional nature of one’s own path towards the reunification of the essence of one’s devotee with God. This faulty conception also gives rise to the idea penetrating all of Islam about the identification of matter with evil and the contempt for our civilization which is considered materialistic, and therefore intrinsically evil and clashing with God. It’s a genuine tragedy of the Muslims themselves that they have eternally closed their journey to God by pursuing this dead end.
Depression, perishing, the absence of faith in the human and his irreplaceable value, skepticism towards the dignity of every human being regardless of his characteristics such as religion, social status, sex, and nationality, that’s what characterizes Islam. Islam has rejected philosophy as we know it, as a possibility of a critical and rational view into the nature of reality. This attitude is also preventing Muslims from thinking about the questions on human freedom, dignity, the role of a person and the state, and – paradoxically – also the questions about God which became, within the Euro-American civilization context, an inherent component of the schemes of thought pursued by top scientists – astrophysicists, mathematicians, biologists, who are touching the very foundations of the Universe and therefore the essence of God by their research. However, Muslims are forever forbidden to gain any direct contact with God which they lost at the moment of Prophet Mohammed’s death. How immensely desperate their life must be when it’s essentially just the waiting for death.
Thanks to this total spacetime paralysis of Islam, the nations suffering from the Muslim ideology are the most devastated ones. Exactly these nations are belittled by the pitiful quasi-religious conditions and their potential which was given to them as to all human beings can’t be turned into accomplishments although they consciously or subconsciously long for them. Just like the Russians were the most miserable victims of communism because the total communism was born in Russia, just like the first victims of the German Nazism were Germans, the people most devastated by Islam are the Arabs and other nations forced to live under the hegemony of Islam. I use this venue to express my deepest compassion with these peoples and especially with the Muslim women who suffer more than others.
These last couple paragraphs really elucidate that which is so distasteful, and, I would say, “evil” about Islam. I obviously point out often the things that we Europeans can learn from Islam, and how certain traits or masculine utilities still exist within their ranks that used to exist more widely within ours. Despite all that though, Islam is, on the whole, an enormously unnatractive religion. This is because of the very things that Samkova is talking about: its rejection of life and all that is life-affirming, its rejection of beauty, and its over-willingness to focus on and engage in the bestial and cruel and horrific (beating your wife, cutting off people’s hands, public floggings, public executions, rape, and so many similar aspects of Sharia Law). Our ancestors possessed strength and civilizational fortitude and great wellsprings of masculinity, but (for the most part) combined these with nobility and virtue, not cruelty and evil.
For Muslims, the road to doom is the only one because they are denied even the essence of the human naturalness, namely the evolution. Islam doesn’t respect development, progress, and humanity. In its despair, it is attempting to take the rest of the mankind with it because from the Islamic viewpoint, the rest of the world is futile, useless, and unclean.
Islam and its Sharia law is incompatible with the principles of the European law, especially with the rights enumerated in the 1950 European Convention on Human Rights (and Freedoms). How is it possible that our law experts don’t see this conflict? How is possible that they remain silent? How is it possible that they approve all requests of the Muslims who refer to Article 9 of the aforementioned Convention which guarantees the freedom of thinking, conscience, and religious faith? And how is it possible that the Muslims in our world are demanding to be protected according to this legal document while our legal system doesn’t seem to provide the same protection to the opinions, ideas, and religious faiths that disagree with Islam? Are our lawyers only capable of counting up to fourteen when the Article 14 of the Convention says the usage of the rights and freedoms described by the Convention must be guaranteed without discrimination based on any criteria? Let me assure everyone that we can count at least to seventeen because Article 17 of the Charter says:
Nothing in this Convention may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein or at their limitation to a greater extent than is provided for in the Convention.
This article was introduced to the Convention by Winston Churchill personally who did it for a special reason, namely as a protection against the totalitarian regimes. He was obviously thinking of the relevant ones of that time, the communist regimes. I have Islam in mind which is equally totalitarian and threatening as the regimes that Winston Churchill was fighting against and which he defeated. The protection by Article 17 correctly applies against any ideology and the fact that the European countries constrained by the Convention decided not to enforce the article so far doesn’t mean that they don’t have the will to do so. These countries are just too kind and benevolent, too aware of the price they have paid while learning about the highest value of the humanity, and too patient. The assumption of the Muslim countries and leaders who have decided to terrorize Europeans by their understanding of the world that the cause of Europe’s inactivity is its weakness, is entirely flawed. Europe has been converging to its opinion and to its world view for the price of tens of millions of human casualties, it has paid by suffering that no Muslim can even imagine.
Nowadays, Europe keeps on asking the Muslims: “Do you want to live with us?” Because not our fear of Islam but this is the paramount, crucial question that should be answered and only the Muslim nations may give the answer.
So far it seems that the Muslims don’t want to peacefully share the planet with the (non-Muslim) rest of the world. Their terrorist acts, loudly declared and committed in the name of Islam, are suggesting that they aren’t interested in the brotherhood between the nations and the people. They’re shouting words about the superiority of Islam and their legal system and they assert that we have the duty to subordinate ourselves to them. We aren’t finding any evidence that the Muslims don’t feel to be superior relatively to us – non-Muslims or women or gays or anyone else who doesn’t strictly adhere to the Quran.
For some time, Europe will keep on asking this question about the peaceful co-existence. At some moment, the question will undergo a metamorphosis and it will sound very differently. It will no longer be DO YOU WANT TO LIVE WITH US but DO YOU WANT TO LIVE? Do you, the Muslims, want to survive? Because if the devotees of Islam won’t want to live in peace, Europe and America will do what it has done twice when they were threatened by ideologies attacking the essence of the humanity: it will wage a war and crush the enemy. Just like in the wars of the past, this conflict will incorporate some grandiose scientific, technical, or technological progress, this time undoubtedly associated with obtaining the total energy independence. I don’t have an idea in what way this will take place: maybe the tokamak will be completed. Maybe we will extract energy from the zero-point quantum fluctuations, maybe we will bring a chunk of dark matter here to serve us [LOL]. At any rate, the main consequence of the violent acts committed by the Muslims and the war that will materialize because of them will be a complete doom for the Islamic ideology. The Islam will be believed by several degenerated individuals crawling in the desert from which unnecessary and unwanted oil will uselessly flow to neverending swamps, a group of individuals who will remember, using their squawking voices, the ancient lights in the streets of Damascus and the beauties of Mecca which will have been turned into nothing more than a hole to hell. This group of nameless individuals will be reclassified as junk by the rest of the humankind, junk that has deviated from the journey towards God and that can never find it again because they have been conquered by disdain for the entity that God found so lovable, namely the humans. To be sure: all humans and the whole planet.
Some might say that Samkova is a little overly optimistic, but I applaud her emphatic tone!
These days, we are artificially fed with ideas that it might be Europe that should be scared and afraid of its future, culture, philosophy, and world view. No, it is exactly the other way around. By their malevolent acts, the Muslims made the first steps towards their own absolute doom.
I am using this gathering and call on all Muslims and all countries that claim that Islam is their religion: Stop it. You are on a wrong track. You are on a track that leads away from God. You are on the road of the murderers. Your death won’t get you to Barbelo, to the land of the non-creator God, but to the land of nothingness and nameless uselessness. Nothing will be left out of you and the name of your alleged religion will only be pronounced when people spit out saliva that was mixed with the dust from the road of the successful, happy, and beloved by God people.
Because this is what is written in The Apocalypse of John, Chapter 12, named “The Conquered Enemy”:
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.
The blue coat of the woman waves in every flag of the European Union. The crown from twelve stars is found on every European Union flag, too.
Muslims, ask the question who is the serpent or the dragon who will be trampled down and defeated by the woman. And most importantly, don’t forget to give the right answer to the aforementioned question: Do you want to live? The right answer is – In that case, you will have to learn how to live with us and (in our countries) according to us.
