WATCH — John Bolton: “Can Islam Coexist with the West?”

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

John Bolten, former US Ambassador to the UN, gave what one might call a "state of the world" address at this past weekend's conference on "Islam and the West" at the Sunset Luxe Hotel, Los Angeles, California. 

A more complete bio for Mr. Bolton:

John R. Bolton, a diplomat and a lawyer, has spent many years in public service. He was the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations from August 2005 to December 2006, and Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security from 2001 to 2005. A Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, Ambassador Bolton’s area of research is U.S. foreign and national security policy. Ambassador Bolton has a J.D. from Yale University Law School and a B.A. from Yale College.

This is from the same conference as the Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller video posted previously.

The event was organized by the American Freedom Alliance.

There is no question that Islam has spawned the most warlike, barbaric, misogynistic, paedophilic, murderous people that the world has ever known.

I know they were jesting but I feel Bolton would make a great Secretary of State for Trump. He has absolutely nailed this.

In the forward to a book called Law in the Middle East , circa 1955 , Justice Robert Jackson penned the following:
“In any broad sense, Islamic Law offers the American lawyer a study in dramatic contrasts. Even casual acquanttance and superficial knowl;edge – all that most of us at bench will be able to acquire-reveal that it’s striking featues relative to our law are not likenesses but inconsistencies , not similarities but contrarities . In it’s scope and its sanctions , the law (Sharia) of the Middle East is the antithesis of Western law. "
Justice Jackson was the Chief Prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials. His conclusion mirrors that of contemporaries Winston Churchill and Douglas MacArthur . Like commentaries even stretch back into history , reports made to Congress by Thomas Jefferson and John Adams.
Not only do our leaders ignore history, but they fail to heed the sensible and prescient warnings of todays realists like John Bolton.
Muslims can only exist in our society in extremely finite numbers. To co-exist is impossible, unrealistic and dangerous. Where in the world do these people live peacefully when they are the majority? Where do they totally accept seperation of church and state. In their world church is the state and the state is the church. And where do the so called moderates totally renounce the root teachings in the Quran , a book that teaches only absorbtion and assimilation , without exception. The answer is no place.
Modernity has eluded Islam. Yes, they can function with the Western technology. But their faith has not advanced to the degree that Muslims can renounce and abjur the primal tenets of Islam as depicted in The Quran.
The concept of God is powerful. In a world where the West has embraced secularism and rejected religiosity, the Muslims have a will and purpose that our culture has lost. To embrace them in this foolhardy concept of multi-culturalism is total folly.
They can live in their own world. Let them. But contain them and maintain our world and culture, seperate and distinct.

@glenn Craig:

No one seems to remember this, but Canada actually was supposed to lead the armada into the Iraq war. Ours was to be literally the flag ship, but one of our ancient and unserviceable helicopters crashed into the deck of the ship rendering both useless and it limped back to shore. If I recall correctly, it was something like 10 miles from Canada’s shore. To save face, Chretien decided to play it as a win by suddenly becoming sanctimonious about not participating in the war.
And everyone just, forgot that we were supposed to lead everyone into it.

“Ten years of war against Iran” typo
commented 2016-08-26 09:25:05 -0400
What peacefull people would that be Sean? Do you mean Iraq under the Bathists? Ten years of war against Iraq followed by an invasion of Kuwait and construction of a Big Bertha gun aimed at Tel Aviv..Oh and the thwarted nuclear weapons program (which Canada bought the yellow cake as seized war prize from) .not to mention numerous chemical attacks on it’s own Kurdish and Shiite citizens….that the peaceful people you refering to Sean?

And I would like to remind you Sean….it was Jean Chretien who sent our troops into Afghanistan….not Stephen Harper .

And as for you Mr Hum…..with what I have seen in my lifetime I wouldn’t put it past Russia to make a deal with anyone. They are hardly thebenchmark of principle or loyalty. The fact that Erdowan is dealing with ISIS is hardly a secret. Did you know that the Cold War was never about Marxist principles? How many people were gullible enough to believe that it was ? Russia shifted support in it’s proxy wars too many times to list here and the regiemes they helped establish are hardly examples of any Marxist Eutopia. And what great principle other than their own interests are they fighting and threatening their neighbours over today? Naval bases and airfields.

Yes, as it had until January 1991, when the old man Bush led a western coalition, from Saudi soil, against Iraq!

The Republicans are fully responsible for all the world’s problems with a peaceful people.

That, and the absolute total support for the State of Israel

This IDIOT – John Bolton – actually suggests that ISIS might ally with Russia and Iran? Unlike treasonous leaders like Obama and Clinton – Putin will not ally with radical Islamist groups. He is bombing the hell out of ISIS in Syria. Why is the Rebel media promoting this Neocon nonsense?
commented 2016-08-26 04:24:10 -0400
I sure as hell hope Trump has a place for John Bolton on his inner circle when he takes over in January… The man intimately knows where “all the dogs are buried” in international politics…

If you want to be a Man ,John Bolton——- then tell the world how to get out of this shit.

Europe is the living proof of incomparable coexistence with Islam. The US is also cracking up over Islamic hegemony defying constitutional freedom and civility.

This guy sounds pretty legit. Amazing.
commented 2016-08-25 22:48:45 -0400

I don’t even have to be a fucking member of the UN ……
