Hat Tip - Kafir Canada

Welcome to a new Link of Note, Kafir Canada, which has a fine recent post, Muslim Brotherhood and MSA (Muslim Student Association), outlining the Brotherhood's ostensible concern with a grand, "civilizational jihad."

Scoffers will, of course, shake heads at yet another paranoid, conspiratorial missive. Would that it were so. Gil Bailie notes, however, how the primitive Sacred creates a camaraderie with a breathtaking seamlessness, elegance, and nearly incredible ability to act in union though separated by miles, communication, and conscious effort.

That without "conscious effort" bit is key, in my opinion. The primitive Sacred creates a kind of consciousness unlike the personalist individualism we associate with the will and, indeed, with what we call "human" here in the West. If we only knew what a treasure we possess in these waning days (or hours or minutes) in the old Christian West bequeathed to us through the patrimony of the Catholic Church in the form of faith and reason, we would not be so busy knocking down the few remaining pieces of scaffolding still holding up these qualities in-breathed by the Holy Spirit. We would be about the business of evangelization with urgency buoyed by the virtues, cardinal and theological.

Meanwhile, as KC notes, quoting the Muslim Brotherhood document, The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Christ or Dionysus, Nietzsche told us. Which side are YOU on? How would anyone know it?
