Steve Bannon, Breitbart and ISIS: True Friends Think Alike

Trump´s White House advisor Steve Bannon, and the Breitbart network, share the same worldview as ISIS and Al Qaeda. According all of them the ”Muslims” are at war with the ”Christians” and the Western world as a whole. The enemy, all Muslims or all Christians, are evil they claim.

According to Steve Bannon there will be a war between ”the Chinese” and U.S.A. within a few years. Bannon predicts more wars between ”the Muslims” and U.S.A too.

“You have an expansionist Islam and you have an expansionist China”, he claims. ”They are motivated. They’re arrogant. They’re on the march. And they think the Judeo-Christian west is on the retreat… The one thing the Chinese fear more than America … they fear Christianity more than anything.”

Steve Bannon believes that Muslims fear Christianity too.

The idea that ”Muslims” and ”Islam” is at war with the ”Christians” is one of the central themes of Breitbart. They have published many articles during the years on this theme.

”The central role that Islam plays in the war on Christians”. (source)

”Where Islam reigns, Christianity is dying… Such anti-Christian activity by Muslims… Despite the effort to eradicate Christians in the Muslim world, all we hear from their Muslim persecutors and naïve non-Muslim supporters of Islam are wails of “Islamophobia”—just by questioning Islamic dogma’s impact on human rights. An Islamic crusader mindset seeks to make Christians extinct.” (source)

By claiming that ”Muslims” and the whole of Islam is at war with the ”Christians” Breitbart shares the worldview of ISIS amd Al Qaeda. ISIS makes the same claim. Breitbart claims that all Muslims and Islam as a whole is evil. ISIS uses the same method and describes all Christians and Christianity as a whole as evil. Both claim that there is a war between Christianity and Islam.

”The Crusaders can read into why Muslims hate and fight them, why pagan Christians should break their crosses… In essence, we explain why they must abandon their infidelity and accept Islam”. (ISIS magazine Dabiq 15)

The ”Muslim Conquest of Italy”

Breitbart and ISIS have another thing in common. Both believe that ”Muslims” currently are trying to conquer Rome and Italy.

In 2015 Breitbart published this article. ”The Coming Muslim Conquest of Italy: Will We Have to Ransom the Treasures of the Vatican from ISIS-Type Vandals?” (Please note that Breitbart does not differ between ISIS and ”Muslims”. They are the same for Breitbart.)

The author (Virgil) talks about the flow of immigrants to Italy from Africa ”Yes, there’s an African invasion of Italy… going on every day in the Mediterranean, as much of the population of Africa (home to 1.1 billion people, about half of them Muslim) seeks to transplant itself to Italy”,  Virgil claims.

Virgil then claims that the ”Muslims” will destroy the Christian heritage in Italy and Rome. So he asks if :

”What will be the psychic toll if and when the Muslims of Italy start defacing or destroying the cultural and artistic treasures of their new home? It’s worth noting that the cultural destruction practiced by ISIS in the Middle East is not a new phenomenon; the Muslim impulse to destroy or transform Western creations is, indeed, long-standing…

The author writes that in the future perhaps the Americans need to Move the treasures of Rome, including the Vatican to the U.S.A to save the heritage from ”The Muslims”.

If you read through the propaganda of ISIS you find that they have exactly the same worldview as Breitbart, but in reverse. True friends think alike!

The ISIS magazine issue 4

There is a war between the Muslims and the Christians and Italy have to be conquered and the churches destroyed, ISIS claims.

”We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted. This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.

So mobilize your forces, O crusaders. Mobilize your forces, roar with thunder, threaten whom you want, plot, arm your troops, prepare yourselves, strike, kill, and destroy us. This will not avail you. You will be defeated…  We fight you with it. So die in your rage… And those who have disbelieved – unto Hell they will be gathered} [Al-Anfāl: 36]…

You will pay the price as you are afraid of travelling to any land. Rather you will pay the price as you walk on your streets, turning right and left, fearing the Muslims. You will not feel secure even in your bedrooms. You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we will strike you in your homeland, and you will never be able to harm anyone afterwards. You will pay the price, and we have prepared for you what will pain you…” (ISIS magazine Dabiq 4)

Contrary to the claims of ISIS and Breitbart Muslims generaly dont hate Christians and Christians generally dont hate Muslims. Those that hate are the extremists. The worst extremists are those that wants a war, like ISIS, Al Quaeda or islamophobes like Breitbart. Worst of all those that do persecute Christians or Muslims, by killing them.

The proponents of coexistence and peace among Muslims base their worldview on the Quran directly.

“To you be your religion, to me be mine.” (The Quran)

”There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion.” (The Quran)

It is the racists and the haters that claim that all Muslims, or all Christians, are evil. It is the racists and the haters that claim that all of Islam or all of Christianity are evil.

Steve Bannon and Breitbart have more in common with ISIS and Al Qaeda than with normal peaceful Christians or Muslims.
