Once a Muslim, now an Objectivist, Bosch Fawstin talks about Islam

The book is a collection of illustrations, cartoons & essays that serves as a preview for The Infidel, a story about twin brothers whose Muslim background comes to the forefront of their lives on 9/11. One responds by creating a counter-jihad superhero comic book called Pigman, as the other fully submits to Islam. Their separate paths inevitably brings them back together into an escalating conflict that is echoed by Pigman's battle against his arch enemy, SuperJihad.

From Mohammed to Ayn Rand

by David Swindle

“Whether it’s a religion or a political movement, the most effective critics are always those who were once believers. Whether it’s David Horowitz dissecting the American Left, Bart Ehrman challenging fundamentalist Christianity, or Ayaan Hirsi Ali critiquing Islam, those that have been on the inside can cut the deepest.

Not all critics write academic tomes. Ex-Muslim cum Objectivist Bosch Fawstin’s new book will contain several essays explaining his challenging, often controversial views on Islam and the War on Terror. But as a cartoonist, Fawstin is the ideal person to make the definitive anti-Jihad superhero: Pigman.

Bosch Fawstin: The enemy is Islam, the so-called moderate Islam of the West is not really true Islam at all.

BF: They say Islam, we say anything but Islam, leaving the troubling impression that the enemy’s religion is something other than Islam.

There is no “Political Islam” or “Totalitarian Islam” that is distinguishable from Islam itself.

Islam is normatively political and totalitarian. We have evaded the true meaning of Islam in the name of respect for religion. But we cannot avoid the consequences of doing so.

Mohammed was a Muslim and his religion was Islam; he was not an Islamist practicing Islamism. He was a Muslim who practiced Islam and engaged in its violent Jihad, forcing Islam into a world it failed to get into on merit.

And any Muslim who is peace-loving and tolerant is by implication condemning their violent, intolerant “prophet” and the means by which their religion was spread.

How Islam spread tells us exactly what Islam means. When the moral standard for an entire culture is a bad guy who crossed the line as a way of life, it explains why his most devout followers are the most violent among Muslims.

We can try our best to stay clear of Islam, but Muslims have proven that they will never keep Islam to themselves unless they are forced to.

It is a faith that sanctions any evil against those who are not part of it. Our not calling this evil by its name, Islam, is sanctioning it and leaving ourselves at the mercy of those who will stop at nothing to bury all we hold dear.”



“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
–Albert Einstein
