PsychoSheikh's Even More Psycho Mentor Revealed

Via The Australian

WHEN Sayyid Qutb returned to Egypt in 1950 after a two-year scholarship in Harry Truman's halcyon America, he took home a master's degree from the Colorado State College of Education and contempt for Western women. It is no coincidence that Qutb's views have more than an echo in the sermons of Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, for whom women are soldiers of Satan. As recently as last week, Hilali, a self-professed admirer of Qutb, described him as a great leader, a symbol of Islam and a model for Muslims.

"The American girl is well-acquainted with her body's seductive capacity. She knows it lies in the face and in expressive eyes and thirsty lips. She knows seductiveness lies in the round breasts, the full buttocks and in the shapely thighs, sleek legs, and she shows all this and does not hide it," Qutb wrote in a paper, America That I Saw.

The main tenets of Qutbism, which was later to feed the minds of the 9/11 terrorists, were outlined in his book Milestones, a call to arms that is to modern-day jihadist-Salafists what Lenin's writings were to the Bolsheviks. It has also been likened to a jihadist version of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf.

He advocated sharia not just as sacred law but as a complete way of life and advocated violent jihad to remove godless false Muslims and their governments as well as the Western and non-Islamic world from the face of the earth.

Qutb's disgust for the degenerate West does not stop with its women or jazz music, which he claimed was "created by Negroes to satisfy their love of noise and to whet their sexual desires". He described the West as a "rubbish heap" and claimed that because of its "enmity toward Islam" it planned to "demolish the structure of Muslim society". He claimed the Western world realised "that Western civilisation is unable to present any healthy values for the guidance of mankind" and that Americans blushed with shame at the immorality of their country compared with Islam's "logic, beauty, humanity andhappiness".

Qutb was virulently anti-Semitic, claiming in Milestones that world Jewry was engaged in tricks and schemes "to eliminate all limitations, especially the limitations imposed by faith and religion, so that Jews may penetrate into (the) body politics of the whole world and then may be free to perpetuate their evil designs. At the top of the list of these activities is usury, the aim of which is that all the wealth of mankind end up in the hands of Jewish financial institutions, which run on interest."

Hitler, according to Qutb, was sent by Allah to rule over the Jews and punish them for their "unprecedented abominations".

Qutb had nothing good to say about the US: "He was critical of the American concern with lawn care. He said he could not get a good haircut there. He was dismayed by what he regarded as the promiscuous relationships between men and women. There's a famous episode where Qutb attended a sock hop at a Greeley (Colorado) church and the pastor played on the gramophone the famous big band song of the day, Baby, It's Cold Outside.

"Qutb was scandalised as he watched young people dancing with each other."

Qutb wrote of the event, which he viewed as the height of debauchery: "They danced to the tunes of the gramophone, and the dance floor was replete with tapping feet, enticing legs, arms wrapped around waists, lips pressed to lips, and chests pressed to chests. The atmosphere was full of desire."

Qutb's most devastating influence has been through his younger brother, Muhammad Qutb, who was eventually released from prison in 1972. He fled to Saudi Arabia, where he published Sayyid's books and taught Islamic studies. He counted Ayman al-Zawahiri (al-Qa'ida's No.2) as one of his students.

Zawahiri went on first to be a member of Egyptian Islamic Jihad and then to mentor Osama bin Laden. The result was the September 11 attacks in America, in which Qutb, posthumously, avenged himself on the country he so hated.
