Американское общество потрясено недавним террористическим актом чеченских братьев Царнаевых в Бостоне. Но дело в том, что американцы сами попустили этот терроризм. Я знаю человека, который организовал политическое убежище в США всему этому клану Царнаевых. Это - американка Крис Райкел (Chris Reichel). Господь судил так, что 7 лет я жил в её доме, куда меня, между прочим, поселил бывший генерал КГБ Олег Калугин. Эта Райкел штамповала чеченцам политические убежища в огромном количестве. За каждое она получала от чеченцев деньги. Хотя в США всегда положено слушать другую сторону, иначе это считается “предубежденностью”, она руководствовалась только чеченской версией. То есть тем, что говорили о себе сами чеченцы.
Явно, что кроме Царнаевых, среди её протеже были и другие чеченские террористы. Все они жили в её доме, я с ними беседовал, некоторые выражали крайние мусульманские и экстремистские ские взгляды. Но что я мог сделать? Ведь если бы я сказал об этом той же Райкел, она бы вышвырнула меня из дома. Потому что в современной Америке, если христианин свидетельствует против мусульманина, то он - «враг народа», как говорили в советские времена.
Один из явных боевиков был раненным, инвалидом. Он плохо ходил. И если бы я что-то вякнул против него, Крис Райкел и её муж обвинили бы меня в издевательстве над инвалидом. А в Америке, как известно, произошла подмена понятий. Если некий человек инвалид, то он - святой человек. А значит, осуждать его нельзя.
Чеченцы говорили между собой, что они хотят обратиться к Калугину, чтобы он написал письмо в их защиту. Может быть, он и писал. Потому что Крис Райкел и её муж были его друзьями. Вот такой интересный, хотя и грустный, сюжет проявился благодаря недавнему эпизоду исламского терроризма в Бостоне.
Проблема в том, что американцы уходят в кусты от этой темы: ислам. Это самая для них опасная тема. Можно погореть и от мусульман, и от своего собственного начальства. Ведь Обама-то оказывает исламу всяческое благоволение. Пока что официальная позиция Америки такова: ислам хороший, а террористы плохие. Но откуда взялись террористы, они боятся сказать.
Поэтому исламизация Америки идёт полным ходом, не встречая сопротивления. Раньше русских упрекали в беспринципности и тупой покорности властям, но американцы их перещеголяли. Русские всё-таки не покорились ни исламу, ни католицизму. Боюсь, что через пару поколений вся Америка будет кричать «Аллах Акбар!» Ведь американцы совсем не такие стойкие, как раньше считалось. Они - конформисты, и смирятся со многим.

The trap of political correctness

Author: i-sobor incl. . Posted in Politics (Views: 1055)

American Society shocked by the recent terrorist attack Chechen tsarnaev family in Boston. But the fact is that Americans themselves suffer this terrorism. I know a man who organized a political asylum in the United States around this clan Tsarnaevyh. This - American Chris Raykel (Chris Reichel). Lord judged so that the 7 years I lived in her house, where I was, by the way, has lodged a former KGB general Oleg Kalugin. This Raykel churned Chechens political asylum in large numbers. For each she received from Chechens money. While it is always supposed to listen to the other side of the United States, otherwise it is considered a "prejudice", she was guided only Chechen version. That is, that talked about the Chechens themselves.
Clearly, that in addition to Tsarnaevyh among its protégés were other Chechen terrorists. They all lived in her house, I talked to them, some expressed extreme Muslim cal and extremist views. But what could I do? After all, if I said this same Raykel, she would have kicked me out of the house. Because in America today, if a Christian witness against a Muslim, then he - "enemy of the people", as they say in Soviet times.
One of the gunmen was wounded explicit, disability. It went badly. And if I do something vyaknul against him, Chris Raykel and her husband would have accused me of abusing disabled. And in America, as we know, there was a substitution of concepts. If a person disabled, he - a holy man. So, it can not be condemned.
Chechens say to each other what they want to appeal to Kalugin, so he wrote a letter on their behalf. Maybe he wrote. Because Raykel Chris and her husband were his friends. Here's an interesting, albeit a sad story emerged thanks to a recent episode of Islamic terrorism in Boston.
The problem is that the Americans go into the bushes on the topic: Islam. This is the most dangerous topic for them. You can burn and Muslims, and by his own superiors. After all, Obama has something to Islam every possible grace. While America's official position is that a good Islam and bad terrorists. But where did the terrorists, they are afraid to say.
Therefore the Islamization of America is in full swing, without encountering resistance. Earlier Russian accused of bad faith and a dull obedience to the authorities, but the Americans outdid them. Russian still not submitted either to Islam or Catholicism. I am afraid that after a couple of generations, all of America will be screaming "Allah Akbar!" After all, Americans are not persistent as previously thought. They - conformists, and put up with a lot.

St. Ignatius Brianchaninov on Muslims

Saint Ignatius (Brianchaninov)
Statement on Islam and Muslims
(selected from the saint's letters)
Vainly and erroneously you think and say that virtuous... Muslims will be saved, that is they will join intercourse with God! Vainly you consider the contrary notion a novelty, a brief error! No! Such is the eternal teaching of the true Church, both Old Testament and New. The Church has always confessed that there exists one means of salvation: the Redeemer! She has confessed that the most virtuous of the fallen really do descend to Hell. Did the righteous of the True Church, the illumined from whom shone the Holy Spirit, the prophets and wonderworkers, believers in the Redeemer's coming but with the demise of the anticipated coming of the Redeemer, descend to Hell so that, as you wish, the Muslims who neither recognize nor believe in the Redeemer receive, because they seem to you good people, that salvation which is delivered solely-- solely, I repeat to you, by means of -- belief in the Redeemer? -- Christians! Know Christ! -- Witness that you don't know Him, that you denied him in claiming the possibility of salvation without Him for some kind of virtue! Claiming the possibility of salvation without belief in Christ denies Him and, maybe not consciously, falls into the grave sin of blasphemy. "Therefore we conclude," says the Holy Apostle Paul, "that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law." (Romans 3:28) "Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus" (Romans 3:22-4). You will object: "The Holy Apostle James requires without fail good works; he teaches that 'faith, if it hath not works, is dead' (James 2:17)." Look again at what the Holy Apostle James requires. You will see that he, just like all God-inspired writers of Holy Scripture, requires the works of faith, and not the virtues of our fallen state! He requires living faith, confirmed by the deeds of the new man, and not the virtues of the fallen state, which are repugnant to faith. He cites the deeds of Patriarch Abraham, the work from which appeared the faith of a righteous man: this work consisted of offering as a sacrifice to God his only begotten son. To offer one's son as a sacrifice-- this is totally not a virtue according to human nature: it is a virtue as the fulfilment of the command of God, as a work of faith. Take a good look at the New Testament and in general all of Holy Scripture: you will find that it demands fulfilment of the commandments of God, that this fulfilment is called works, that from this fulfilment of God's commandments faith in God comes to life, as functioning; without works faith is dead, lacking any movement. And contrary to this, you will find that virtuous works of the fallen state, done out of feeling, blood, impulses or tenderheartedness-- are prohibited, repudiated! And namely for these virtues you like... the Muslims! To them, though it were repudiation of Christ, you want to give salvation.
Letter No. 203
You are blessed if you recognize the difference between the virtuous of the spirit and of the heart, between the virtuous peculiar solely to the New Adam, and virtuous which the old Adam is capable of joining: between the virtuous of the Gospel and the virtuous of our fallen state, the virtuous to whom are not strange idolaters, Muslims and all such people who shun the following of sacred Truth.
Letter No. 234
Faith is sacred and true only when it is faith in the sacred Truth, when it is faith which yields on the earth the human form of divine Truth, our Lord Jesus Christ. Any other faith, except faith in the sacred Truth, is superstition. The fruits of superstition are ruin. Such faith is condemned by God: it is the faith of idolaters in their idols, Muslims in their false prophet Mohammed and in the Qu'ran, heretics in their blasphemous dogmas and in their hereseiarchs, and rationalists in their fallen human intellect. With this faith will the Antichrist be believed by his followers.
Letter No. 236
There is no doubt that the action of spirits can be nourishing. But thus imparted to believe in them is impossible: if they occasionally speak even truth, it is in order to injure all the more reliably. At the present time their most important work is to let fall all that is true in the idea of God and of all that is divine and to glorify the idea of man in his fallen state, the more reason so to prepare the glorification of that man who extols himself above God according to the prophecy of the Holy Apostle Paul. Such an idea, which ruined men in paradise! Only it now uncoils more vastly. What Papism! What Mohammedism! This is only camouflage; this is particular activity. The Pope and Mohammed serve the fore-representation of the Antichrist...
