No Atheists
In A Foxhole

Rudyard Kipling

" “When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

General Douglas MacArthur

" “We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,
for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining



Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My Church have you been true?"

"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns

Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.

They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,



I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

‘We need more than ever to read the luminous and emancipatory work of Ibn Warraq’
Thursday, August 20, 2020
Book By Ibn Warraq
Jihad Watch : Ibn Warraq, the pioneering and courageous ex-Muslim and peerless scholar of Islam, has published a new edition of his seminal work, Why I Am Not A Muslim. You can order it here.
This is one of the most important works to have appeared in the last thirty years about jihad violence and Sharia oppression. It made an extraordinary impression on me when I first read it, years before I had published anything on Islam. Ever since it first appeared it has been a source of inspiration for innumerable ex-Muslims and others who believe in universal human rights and thus oppose Sharia. If you haven’t read it, you need to. It is a monumental contribution to the defense of civilization against barbarism, and doubtless one of the few that will survive over the centuries, if free societies survive.
Why I Am Not A Muslim is a truly comprehensive overview of what is problematic about Islam in the contemporary world. It includes discussions of the Salman Rushdie death fatwa and the Islamic jihad against the freedom of speech, which has only grown more emboldened in the years since the first edition was written. Ibn Warraq also discusses the difficulties arising from the moral teachings of the Qur’an, the compatibility of Sharia with otherwise universally accepted principles of human rights, and a great deal more. The book appeared at a time when it was taken for granted that jihad violence was a subject for history books, and that the Islamic world was moving confidently in the direction of democracy and secularism.
Ibn Warraq showed why that was always a false hope, and everything he says in Why I Am Not A Muslim has been borne out by the events of the subsequent quarter-century. That makes this book all the more urgent. Even after the passage of all this time, it remains the one book to give to an ill-informed and well-meaning individual who is afraid of appearing to be “Islamophobic” — and of course the hordes of such people are growing every day. In her Foreword, Zineb el Rhazoui, a journalist who survived the Charlie Hebdo jihad massacre — she was in Morocco at the time — writes:
We need more than ever to read the luminous and emancipatory work of Ibn Warraq. If each young Muslim read only one of his books, the Qur’anic darkness would have far less hold on brains having experienced the relentless rigor of critical reason. Ibn Warraq’s precursor journey is a lesson in dignity and intellectual coherence. Or how a man undertakes the titanic work of demystifying a religion to which all the outstretched hands were cut, bequeathing to his peers a prolific mass of scholarly analyzes and historical or semantic discoveries which did not stop awakening the masses anesthetized by centuries of obligatory faith. At a time when Western societies are busy “deradicalizing” at great cost, inventing at the same time a neologism which sterilizes the debate where it should be said “to de-Islamize”, Ibn Warraq has undertaken to do it since his pen started to run on the pages.
I am not afraid to say it, as long as one does not read Ibn Warraq more than one reads the Koran, Islam will continue to sow the seeds of mass crime, while draping itself in its divine aura.
