Barack Obama: Foreign Policy Disaster

1 07 2013

Just a short two years after President Obama stepped into Egypt’s political theater supporting the ousting of Hosni Mubarak, his choice for President of Egypt is now being asked to leave.

Exactly a year ago the President called the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, Muhammed Morsi, to congratulate him on his win in the election replacing former President Mubarak.  Mubarak was no friend to the Muslim Brotherhood, same as his predecessors dating back to Nassar who actually had Brotherhood members arrested, executed, or run out of Egypt after their failed attempt to assassinate him.  Anwar Sadat was not so lucky, being killed by Brotherhood members within his own army in 1981.

Yesterday, June 30, estimated “millions” of Egyptians flooded the streets of Cairo and other cities to tell Morsi to “Get Out”.  This follows a year of increasing Islamist governmental oppression foisting Sharia Law upon the citizens of Egypt and failure to improve economic conditions, and persecution of those who speak out against Islamism including the Coptic Christians, secularists, and “moderate” Muslims alike.  At the time of this writing there were 7 dead, 253 injured in Sunday’s rallies, and protesters had set the MB Headquarters afire, while President Obama has steadily increased Brotherhood access to American Government agencies since his own election in 2008.

Obama, along with most of the Western media dhimmi’s, where touting the “Arab Spring” of 2011 as the new era of freedom, giving both moral support and/or military aid to the

likes of Islamist MB groups in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Yemen, Bahrain, etc.  Egypt is perhaps the most strategic nation due to proximity to Israel and the Suez Canal, and has, since Anwar Sadat, been an ally to the US.  The people of Egypt may be rethinking that association now in light of the fact that Barack Obama has become the first American President in history to support an Islamist government regime for Egypt.

The now laughable “Red Line” threat to Syria and ensuing policy there has led to further erosion of American standing in the Middle East.  Now the US Government (including Dem/Rep Congress) is on record as supporting and arming Islamist radicals who butcher their foes like pigs and eat their organs raw, and beheading others including a Catholic Priest.  Not sure how we got to the point that the Russian President Vladimer Putin is questioning the American choice to support such barbarism, giving our arch-rival the high moral ground on the global stage.  I do not advocate supporting Assad but since we waited so long to see where the Muslim Brotherhood was going to be on Syria, can’t we just stay the hell out of one of these?  Israel can take care of itself, and would probably feel much more secure with out this Administration constantly creating “situations” for them.  We already have a thousand Marines in Northern Jordan as “advisers” and Obama just recently deployed 400 US Army troops to Egypt, trained in “riot control”.  The US has an additional 400 troops in Turkey manning Patriot missile batteries along the Syrian border.

Just a few days ago Turkey’s PM Erdogen pulled the rug out from under the Obama plan to channel weapons through Turkey to the Syrian rebels by shutting that corridor down.  Erdogen told Obama he was afraid of retribution from the Russians if he continued to allow aid to the Syrian Rebels.  From DEBKAfile:

“Until now, the Erdogan government was fully supportive of the Syrian opposition, permitting them to establish vital command centers and rear bases on Turkish soil and send supplies across the border to fighting units. He has now pulled the rug out from under their cause and given Assad a major leg-up

This about-turn is a strategic earthquake – not just in terms of the Syrian war but also for the United States and, as time goes by, for Israel too.”

Iraq has devolved into Shia vs. Sunni sectarian violence since US withdrawal, leaving its government questionable.  We will be completely withdrawn from Afghanistan by the end of next year, currently holding “talks” with Taliban leaders there.  Are we that naive to believe the Taliban will simply put their AK’s down and leave the villagers to go back to growing poppies?  (Sometimes I think the reason we invaded Afghanistan was to get the product from those poppies and distribute it to Washington.  They sure act like they’re stoned out of their gourds up there!) Saudi Arabia now has free access to any airport in the US; Unlimited flights with DHS deferring to the Saudi government to screen those travelers to the US.

Today, since the “Arab Spring” began, the Muslim Brotherhood has gained control of much of North Africa, bringing their chartered goal of the “Khalifa” (Islamic Caliphate) much closer to fruition.  MB continues its efforts in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria, working toward the caliphate.  Turkey’s Islamist AKP (Justice and Development Party) Government wants the Caliphate, which until 1922 had been held by the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) for 500 years.  The Saudi’s want the Caliphate, which according to Sharia Law is the common directive to every Muslim.  The Saudi King, after all, is charged with advancing the Islamic religion to the world. He is the keeper of the faith and protector of the Kaaba, in Mecca, the most holy site in Islam.  The Saudi Flag bears the “Shahada” declaration of faith, “There is but one god Allah, and Muhammad is his Prophet” along with the sword of Islam.

For all practical purposes, it would appear that the US President also wants the caliphate.  Vladimer Putin, however, does not want the caliphate.  He understands that a unified Islamic Caliphate will command the petroleum reserves of the entire Middle East, not to mention strategic and commerce lanes.  He also understands that Syria is the keystone in forming that confederacy.  And don’t forget Iran!

Will the Syrian civil war ultimately lead to Russia becoming militarily engaged bringing Iran and Turkey against Israel, at the end of the day?

This chessboard is looking more like Ezekiel 38 every day.  Is this American President helping to bring it?

His policies are setting the Middle East on fire.





Milestones in Review – Reposted

30 05 2013

There has been quite a lot of interest in this article recently, so I have republished it for any new “Defining the Narrative” readers, or those who may have missed it or would like a refresher.  One of my first articles, it has continued to grow popularity.

I recently read the book Milestones by Seyyid Qutb.  He is considered by some to be the father of the modern Islamic revolution.220px-Qutb

Milestones was written from an Egyptian prison in 1964. Qutb had spent 2 years in America several years prior, and reported that his prejudices had been confirmed concerning American depravity. America was ripe for the picking.

Qutb’s book wasn’t his first, or his longest work, but perhaps Milestones has had the most impact on the modern world. Although some attribute the modern “Islamic Revolution” to this book, that was not exactly the outcome that Qutb desired.

Actually, Islamic Revival was his desire and purpose. Milestones was to be the “vanguard” publication to accomplish this. By initiating a revival of Islam among those who profess it, the natural outcome would then be an alteration of the course of human history. Revolution would not be necessary, but world conquest would be at hand. Revival of the fundamentals of Islam within the culture itself would make Islam irresistible in both principle and on the battlefield. A revived and truly Muslim population in the cause of Allah would be invincible.

Islam had, according to Qutb, become compromised by moderates and liberals (Muslim) who, for various reasons, embraced Western Culture and prosperity. Obviously the development of Middle Eastern oil fields was responsible for most of this merging of the two worlds, and the petro-dollar brought an ancient culture roaring forward into the industrialized 20th century with so much speed, there was no time for gradual adaptation. Yet today, there is a stark contrast within these countries, and without the petro-dollar they would shrivel back into the desert survivalist culture of a mere century ago.

Seyyid was disturbed by the fact that Muslims, during the first half of the 20th Century, were with a few exceptions, content to “live and let live”, professing Islam while immersed in ‘Jahili’ (the state of ignorance of guidance of Allah) culture. A Muslim should withdraw from all Jahilayyah relationships and become joined completely to Islam just as Muhammad and the Companions had disavowed all ties to polytheism and its adherents. A Muslim cannot be true Muslim, submitted to Allah, and retain any ties to non-Islamic influences. Qutb laments, “This is why the true Islamic values never enter our hearts, why our minds are never illuminated by Islamic concepts, and why no group of people arises among us who are of the caliber of the first generation of Islam.” He then adjures, “We must return to that pure source from which those people derived their guidance…[their]concepts of…the universe, the nature of human existence…Our aim is first to change ourselves so that we may later change the society…this system which is fundamentally at variance with Islam…”

Qutb’s call to all Islam was a return to Fundamentalism, that being the founding principles of Islam. This “revival” within Islam would then lead to political reformation in Islamic countries, bringing to bear those governments which had established within their own constitutions; that Islam is the official state religion and Islamic jurisprudence (Shari’a) is the law of the land. This move to “right” Egypt’s secularized government along with his fellow members of “Muslim Brotherhood” is the reason he was imprisoned and consequently executed by “The Arab Republic of Egypt” in 1966.

Egypt was but one of the Islamic Republics which had not implemented Shari’a as enumerated in its own constitution. Turkey is the most widely known which has managed, even today, to maintain a modicum of separation (though currently very tenuous) between religion and state; for practical purposes a secularized government. The United States has, in fact, assisted in the establishment of two of the latest Islamic Republics of the world; Iraq and Afghanistan, complete with constitutions which name Islam as the official religion.

Seyyid Qutb goes on in Milestones to express disdain for Muslim apologists who insist that Jihad” is simply defensive war.  He refers to them as “defeatists”, and explains thatJihad is the means by which to establish the Divine Law (Shari’a).  Jihad, according to Qutb as well as Koran, is offensive action that “tries to annihilate all those political and material powers which stand between people and Islam…It is not the intention of Islam to force its beliefs on people, but Islam is not merely ‘belief’.” Then he clarifies, “…in an Islamic system there is room for all kinds of people to follow their own beliefs, while obeying the laws of the country which are themselves based on the Divine authority (Shari’a).”

In other words, you can believe whatever you want, but you will live according to Shari’a LawThis is the mission of Islam defined: Not to convert the entire world to Islamic belief; but to bring the entire world under submission to Shari’a, or Islamic Law.

Muslims are not to commit allegiance to a nation or state or geographic area. Neither is a Muslim bound by any commitment or loyalty or oath to non-Muslims. Only to Allah does one claim or pledge allegiance.  Only through Islam is any relationship, contractual or filial valid. “A Muslim has no country except that part of the earth where the Shari’a of [Allah] is established and human relationships are based on the foundation of relationship with [Allah]; a Muslim has no nationality except his belief, which makes him a member of the Muslim community in Dar ul Islam; a Muslim has no relatives except those who share the belief in [Allah]…”

Dar ul Islam is the “house of Islam” which “is that place where the Islamic state is established and the Shari’a is the authority…” The rest of the world is the “house of war” or Dar ul Harb. “A Muslim can have only two possible relations with Dar ul Harb: peace with a contractual agreement [hudna or truce], or war.”

Seyyid further explains, “But any place where the Islamic Shari’a is not enforced and where Islam is not dominant becomes [Dar ul Harb]”.

In the closing paragraphs of Milestones, Qutb conjures macabre images referring to his title, “This intricate point requires deep thought…to whatever country or period of time they belong; for this guarantees that they will be able to see the milestones of the road clearly and without ambiguity, and establishes the path for those who wish to traverse it to the end…Then they will not be anxious, while traversing this road ever paved with skulls and limbs and blood and sweat, to find help and victory…”

This book, the “vanguard” of modern Islamic Fundamentalism, written in 1964 has inspired Jihadists, Mujahidin and Shahada (“martyrs” aka suicide bombers) for 45 years. Seyyid Qutb is considered Shahid by fundamentalist Muslims around the world. I have read several books from and on Islam and would recommend Milestones as essential reading for one who desires to understand the purpose and designs of modern Islam and the resolve of Islamic fundamentalists.





Spreading Islam and sharia in Kansas City

20 04 2013

H/t Creeping Sharia & Causing Fitna – Here, in Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)’s own publications, is the proof that Islam is not in America to “Coexist”! Interfaith Dialogue is a Trojan Horse used to get inside our churches and synagogues. It is not “Interfaith” and it is a “Monologue” rather than a dialogue. Note the closing words of the ICNA guest speaker from a previous statement: “Indeed Islam came to tear down the pillars of kufr and replace them with the pillars of Islam.”
It is the actualization of the “Strategic Goal for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America” as delineated in their own document here.





Boston Globe vs Free Speech

16 02 2013

[The Following Article was first published under the title “Boston Globe vs Free Speech” Feb. 15, 2013, in the American Thinker magazine.  See original article here.  It was distributed in part by “Americans for Peace and Tolerance” which provided the included photos. (H/T Americans for Peace and Tolerance)  I have published the entire article here as originally published by American Thinker. I have added a few links to related matter on this site.]

This kind of thing is happening all across America.  This is just one example of a dhimmi societal position and an agenda driven political movement which will use any ally necessary to further its own agenda.  It causes government bureau’s, media reporters, and politicians alike to self censor in order to avoid making the “ally look bad”.  This country is not immune, yes perhaps even more vulnerable, than countries all around the globe who are experiencing Islamic Colonization at a breakneck pace.  The enemy of Islamic Fundamentalism is not coming…It Is Here, and will not be stopped!

Boston Globe vs Free Speech

By Ilya Feoktistov and Charles Jacobs

A troubled young man plans to go on a shooting rampage at a local mall.  A devoted fan of other mass murderers, he gets pleasure watching videos of cruel and graphic violence: actual beheadings, disembowelments, maimings. He hates his neighbors and wishes for their deaths. He’s been taught to hate by religious extremists who dominate his community while intimidating their opponents into silence. The FBI catches him before he can go through with his plan to machine gun shoppers at the mall, though the Bureau ignores the people who indoctrinated him. The extremists, meanwhile, are demanding that the would-be murderer be released. They teach their children that he is a hero, and that those who stopped him from slaughtering innocent people are the true villains. A local newspaper journalist knows all this but for motives unknown, she refuses to report this story.

This is not a fictional account. On November 10, 2010, we met with Boston Globe’s religion reporter Lisa Wangsness and briefed her for over two hours on a troubling story. A year before, the FBI had arrested Tarek Mehanna, an Islamic extremist from Sudbury, Massachusetts whom it accused of providing material support to Al Qaeda and plotting a shooting spree at the Emerald Square Mall in North Attleboro, MA. In intercepted conversations, Mehanna celebrated the 9/11 hijackers as heroes. Mehanna and friends gloating at Ground Zero in New YorkAccording to the indictment, “Mehanna and his coconspirators, who shared videos and took real pleasure in the deaths of American servicemen, seemed to delight in the most horrific atrocities.” Watching Iraqi terrorists tearing open a dead U.S. Marine’s rib cage and setting it on fire with gasoline, Mehanna gloated: “heh yeah… nice juicy BBQ… Texas BBQ is the way to go.” Trial documents show that Mehanna and his co-conspirators referred to themselves as the American wing of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Mehanna was convicted on all charges last year and sentenced to 17 years in prison.

We also shared with the Globe’s reporter evidence of an intense campaign by local Islamic extremists to pressure the Justice Department to release Mehanna back into the community that he had planned to attack. The extremists insisted that the twisted mind revealed in FBI-recorded conversations was actually a gentle soul who loved children and playing with his cat. Claiming that Mehanna’s arrest was nothing but a witch hunt by the FBI, which they accused of hating Muslims, they incited their followers against the U.S. government by painting the ghoulish would-be killer as the victim.

We showed Ms. Wangsness that well-known religious leaders with connections to Massachusetts political and civic leadership were involved in this campaign. Among them was Imam Abdullah Faaruuq, then the Muslim Chaplain at Northeastern University and a frequent preacher at the largest mosque in the Northeast, the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center. (Faaruuq was dismissed from his position at Northeastern after we exposed his actions in support of Mehanna and other convicted terrorists.)

Her own newspaper reported that another respected local Muslim leader supporting Tarek Mehanna was a medical doctor named Abdul Cader Asmal, co-chairman of communications for the Islamic Council of New England. In 2011, Dr. Asmal was stripped of his medical license by disciplinary action from the Massachusetts Board of Medicine.

At our meeting with Ms. Wangsness, we traced for her a timeline of Mehanna’s trajectory from a Sudbury, MA teenage son of Egyptian immigrants to a budding Al Qaeda terrorist. Mehanna had been radicalized at the Islamic Center of Worcester and the Islamic Center of New England in Sharon, Massachusetts. We showed her documents revealing that these mosques were led by imams who happened to be the brothers of one of the most wanted terrorists in the world, Hafiz Saeed. Saeed, who had visited the Boston area when Mehanna was 12, is the Pakistani mastermind of one of the world’s deadliest mass mall shootings: the 2008 Mumbai Massacre. According to the Times of India, his Massachusetts-based brothers raised money and recruited members for his terrorist group in the Bay State.

Ms. Wangsness learned how the Islamic Center of Worcester, in particular, actively engages in youth indoctrination. During Mehanna’s trial, the mosque’s elementary schoolchildren were tasked with drawing “Free Tarek Mehanna” posters and then carted off to the Federal Court building in Boston to chant anti-American slogans.

Children brought by extremists to "FreeTarek" demonstrationWe shared with Ms. Wangsness interviews with moderate Muslims who reached out to us asking for help in fighting the extremists who had hijacked their community and are brainwashing their children. We showed her a vicious and threatening letter that local extremist leader Nabeel Khudairi sent to a moderate Muslim who dared challenge the extremists in his mosque.

She looked at all our evidence, thanked us politely, and reported nothing. Now perhaps we can understand why.

On January 30, 2013, Wangsness spent part of the day working with Abdul Cader Asmal — the disgraced medical doctor and supporter of Tarek Mehanna; with officials from the Islamic Center of Worcester — which was the incubator for Mehanna’s hatred and still may be for dozens of young children; and with Nabeel Khudairi — the intimidator of moderate Muslims. Their goal, according to leaked emails, was to pressure the Catholic Diocese of Worcester to cancel a talk by Robert Spencer, a well-known critic of Islamic doctrine, especially its treatment of non-believers, whom they falsely accused of hating Muslims.

They succeeded. The Worcester Diocese cancelled Spencer’s talk without the courtesy of informing him directly. He had to learn about it from Wangsness, who reached out to him for comment in a series of emails whose line of questioning followed the “have you stopped beating your wife?” formula. The article she published in the next day’s Boston Globe (“Catholic event cancels talk by Islam critic”) was a foregone conclusion: Spencer was portrayed as a villain, while Wangsness’s extremist associates were made to look like sympathetic victims. Though the article quoted Abdul Cader Asmal positively as a doctor, it made no mention of his permanent removal from practice through disciplinary action.

Robert Spencer is a controversial author and speaker, yet in some ways, his views on Islam tend to be more scholarly than many of the atheist critics of Christianity, who, without much fuss, populate American universities and cultural institutions. Spencer forcefully makes the point that, as with all religions, adherents range widely — from the absolute literalists to the largely secular “cultural” Muslims. Spencer says he is not against Muslims, but against the political aspect of Islam, which demands that its followers act — violently if necessary — to subjugate infidels and establish a theocracy.

Disagreeing with Spencer is simply not a valid reason to prevent people from hearing his arguments and his warnings. A pluralistic and open society must always favor the free exchange of all ideas to the intolerant suppression of dissent. It is sadly ironic, though no longer surprising, that a member of the press would join Islamist extremists in trying to suppress free speech, and — in Wangsness’ case — go as far asto effectively censor information related to extremist activities.

Why would Ms.Wangsness behave this way? Surely she doesn’t share the radical Islamic ideological hatred toward America espoused by the people she’s protecting. Much more likely, she believes in the political dogma adopted by the ‘social justice‘-seeking media and civic elites. It is based on the false narrative that American Muslims constitute a “vulnerable minority,” which deserves protection from criticism — even if such protection involves the suppression of facts and the repression of critics. Sadly, too many journalists and political leaders collaborate with this crusade against the truth, and too many newspapers make it a matter of editorial policy. Journalists like Lisa Wangsness of the Boston Globe have largely become instruments of a truly illiberal orthodoxy. Its fetishes and myths — that Western culture is racist, that Islam is the religion of peace, that Muslims are always victims, and that anyone who says otherwise must be denounced and silenced — can never be questioned. It is through this dogmatism that the radical Islamists have won from the media and political elites a special set of protections.

Commenting on the infamous YouTube video criticizing Islam’s prophet Mohammed, which resulted in Muslim mobs rioting and killing around the world, President Obama expressed a strange view on the concept of dissent in a free society. He said: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” With this statement, Obama attacked the right to criticize Islam, and he was in effect targeting not only YouTube provocateurs, but also people like Robert Spencer.

Not enough significance has been paid to the implications of the president’s bizarre pronouncement. Obama left unsaid what he thinks should be done with those who criticize Islam in order to ensure that “the future must not belong” to them. However, the subsequent arrest of the producer of the offending YouTube video on charges that posting the video violated his probation, speaks louder than words. Will Robert Spencer and other authors and scholars who find sufficient reason to criticize any aspect of Islam have to worry about special scrutiny that could lead to prosecution or face other, more subtle, government sanctions?

Amazingly, such threats to freedom of expression seem not to bother those who otherwise make criticism of those in power the key element of their profession. This is not a new phenomenon. In his essays, “Writers and Leviathan” and “The Prevention of Literature,” George Orwell seems to speak from the grave directly to Lisa Wangsness and journalists like her:

Freedom of the Press, if it means anything at all, means the freedom to criticize and oppose… To yield subjectively, not merely to a party machine, but even to a group ideology, is to destroy yourself as a writer… If you possess information that conflicts with the prevailing orthodoxy you are expected either to distort it or to keep quiet about it… Even a single taboo can have an all-round crippling effect upon the mind, because there is always the danger that any thought which is freely followed up may lead to the forbidden thought.

A modern literary intellectual lives and writes in constant dread — not, indeed, of public opinion in the wider sense, but of public opinion within his own group. As a rule, luckily, there is more than one group, but also at any given moment there is a dominant orthodoxy, to offend against which needs a thick skin… To accept an orthodoxy is always to inherit unresolved contradictions… In every such case there is a conclusion which is perfectly plain but which can only be drawn if one is privately disloyal to the official ideology. The normal response is to push the question, unanswered, into a corner of one’s mind, and then continue repeating contradictory catchwords.

Ms. Wangsness has redefined the role of the journalist from providing true information to promoting a group’s dominant orthodoxy, which in this case also requires blacklisting, silencing, and employing neo-McCarthyism against those who violate its taboos. The ultimate victims here are the people of New England, who are kept ignorant of the potential dangers in their community. Welcome to the New Journalism — serving private ideology against the public interest.

Foreign Policy Alinsky Style: Libya, Cairo, and Gay Ambassadors

18 09 2012

Courtesy Yahoo! Sports

American Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, killed September 11, 2012, along with 3 other staff members by suspected Al Qaeda.

The Embassy was burned, documents stolen and who knows what intelligence and other information compromised.  Libyan media is reporting that the Ambassador was brutally raped pre and postmortem.

The suspicion that Mr. Stevens was homosexual is substantiated by Chicago social networks and diplomatic circles. According to a  post by Kevin Dujan, a gay political analyst and commentator, the ambassador was known in the gay social scene around Chicago.  The article goes on to describe photographs of the ambassador being stripped of clothing and dragged off to be raped and beaten until dead, then raped in death.  This is a barbarous act that is sometimes used by conquerors against mostly women, but sometimes homosexual men, to “demote” them to the status of women in the afterlife (whom incidentally, the fires of hell were made for).  Those photo’s and these reports shall most likely remain unseen in mainstream media.

It is highly unlikely that Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama didn’t know that Chris Stevens was homosexual.

It has been Obama/Clinton policy to actively promote LGBT as part of human rights issues around the world, and events such as the first ever “Gay Pride” celebration in Islamabad, Pakistan, in June of 2011.   Deputy Ambassador Richard Hoagland was the official host which was co-sponsored by the Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agency (GLIFAA) and attended by 75 people.  My first thought upon finding this organization was, are there really that many LGBT’s in US Foreign Affairs to warrant this agency?  Well, obviously, since we have about 80 GLIFAA reps in 68 countries, 18 of which are majority Muslim.   As you can imagine, this event was not received by the indigenous Muslims of Pakistan favorably.    Protesters of course held to the obligatory American flag burning rituals, chanting “Death to America”, but also burning President Obama in effigy.  They accused the United States of “cultural terrorism” for promoting homosexuality in Pakistan.

Back to the current spate of anti-American protests in most of the Middle East, the White House and State Department continue to hold up the stupid video about Muhammad as the reason for all the outrage, with Jay Carney, White House spokesman, doubling down on the narrative that Obama Administration foreign policies are not to blame, and whining that the outrage is ‘not against us, but those bad old people who dissed the “prophet”.  Shame on them’.  Forget the fact that most of the Middle East and South Asia is burning Obama in effigy, and forget that those protesters in Cairo were chanting, “We are all Osama’s Obama!!”  S’pose that could be in response to the recent victorious reference at the DNC to “Osama bin Laden is dead and GM is alive!” ?

It would seem that it is Obama Administration policy to insult the entire Islamic world by perpetrating a social and sexual practice that is the most reprehensible thing to them except maybe burning a Koran or making a mockery of their prophet.  (Personally, I could care less about burning the Koran, mocking the prophet or Marines pissing on dead Taliban.  My point is the hypocrisy here is overwhelming.)  The Shari’a calls for punishments of homosexual acts ranging from public flogging to execution… actually when you think about it, those are the punishments for many things under Shari’a.

So then, does the President not bear some modicum of responsibility for the death of Mr. Stevens.  Or what of Secretary Clinton?  If the maker of the moronic little video that mocks Muhammad is such a criminal, and deserves to be prosecuted, doesn’t the government official who knowingly appointed a homosexual man to a post where known Islamic Fundamentalist radicals are hanging out, still carrying weapons that we provided them with to facilitate the bloody capture and bludgeoning of Momar Ghaddaffi, after which Ms. Clinton was photographed in a celebratory mood.

Ok, let’s review.

We are barely a year out from a bloody civil war in Libya.  There are still Ghaddaffi Loyalists at large.  We armed the rebels,  the natives are calling for Sharia, and our government places a gay man with minimal security in a makeshift “embassy compound” while we promote homosexuality through our various embassies around the Islamic world.  President Obama openly supports the Muslim Brotherhood in the Arab Spring, a known Fundamentalist Islamist organization founded for the sole purpose of bringing back the Islamic Caliphate and the rule of Sharia Law.

The President has snubbed the leader of Israel, bowed to the Saudi King, facilitated the destabilization of not only several Islamic nation states, but pretty much the entire Middle East and South Asia, hinted at invading Pakistan, actually has given the order to pursue and kill an iconic Islamic fugitive on Pakistani soil then dumped the body at sea, refused to assist civilians in Syria who are suffering genocidal attacks, but allowed Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood to take the lead in that endeavor, chastised Israel for protecting her sovereign territory, reduced American forces in Afghanistan to the point that remaining personnel are severely over worked, and increasingly targeted by “friendly” Afghan Security Forces.   In the middle of all that mess, he places ambassadors with minimal security and at a deadly high risk.

The rioters in Libya breached the Embassy attacking not only sovereign US Territory, but American citizens.  No dead Libyans? Why no return fire?  In Cairo, the rioters breached the Embassy compound, again sovereign US Territory, attacked our flag and replaced it with the Islamic Jihad flag, which was referred to “officially” as the “flag of Al Qaeda”.  So if Al Qaeda, according to Asst. Secretary of Defense,  is the only recognized enemy in the “Global War on Terrorism” why was the enemy allowed to hang his banner on my flag pole!?!

There are reports that at least the Cairo Embassy Marine contingent were not even issued live ammo…

You are looking at the biggest Foreign Policy disaster since Jimmy Carter…no check that.  It’s worse than Carter; Jimmy didn’t get it.  This guy knows exactly what he’s doing.  Saul Alinsky methods now instituted on a global scale.  System Overload; System Fail…

 





Kansas Governor signs American Laws for American Courts Bill

26 05 2012

Friday afternoon, May 25, Governor Sam Brownback took a proactive step to secure Constitutional rights for all Kansans.  A bill that has been in process for about two years finally came to rest on the Governor’s desk after passing both houses of the Kansas Legislature in mid May.

The hardest fought battle was in the Senate after Committee leadership failed several attempts to stonewall and block the progression of the bill.   This law was actually dead three times during the process. Each attempt to stop it was met by a series of courageous individuals who stepped up and carried it on in the face of opposition from tenured committee leadership and media critics.  In a previous post, Kansas Passes American Laws for American Courts I detailed some of that process.

American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) underscores the American ideal of “all equal before the Law”. It is the reinforcing of the promises of government to guard and protect the individual rights and freedoms as granted under the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Kansas regardless of country or culture of origin, race, or religion.  It gives statutory direction to the Courts, which at times, without such laws to refer to, may use arbitrary means to reach a decision.

The HAMAS linked CAIR (Council for American Islamic Relations), a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate, had mounted its expected attack on Kansas.  They mounted a national campaign for Muslims to contact Governor Brownback and tell him to veto the bill.

What hasn’t made the news, to my knowledge, is that this bill has been endorsed by the American Islamic Leadership Coalition, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, President and Founder of American Islamic Forum for Democracy, and has been examined and ruled as Constitutional by the Congressional Research Service. Unlike the Oklahoma ballot initiative of  2010, it has yet to be challenged in court in any state where ALAC has become law.

Since the Legislature had adjourned (sine die) prior to the end of the usual waiting period, the Governor had to sign SB 79 in order for it to become law.  That might have been the more politically expedient action for him to take; allow it to expire without his signature.

Nonetheless, in spite of the mis-information, and sensationalist and even international campaign waged by CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, along with some uninformed citizens to marginalize the bill, proponents of the bill, the Governor and the overwhelming majority of the Kansas Legislature and Kansas citizens, the Governor chose to step up and make a public statement for individual liberties for every citizen, regardless of gender, religion, or cultural background.  Brownback will, no doubt, receive a tongue lashing from the media, left wingers everywhere, and pro-Islamist groups around the country and the globe.  He is not a newcomer to politics and to coin a phrase, that took some guts.

CAIR’s call to action lambasted the Kansas Legislature, and Kansas citizens, as Islamophobic, Muslim hating bigots, and that this law will forbid free exercise of Islamic religious beliefs.

Well, if your free exercise of your religious beliefs goes contrary to the Constitution, and existing Kansas and American Law, then I suppose that would apply.  Things like polygamy, slavery, inequity in legal status, stoning, suppression of the rights of other individuals (Muslim or non-Muslim), misogyny, yes, these things are contrary to our laws.

It’s sort of like driving the wrong way on a one way street.  It’s against the law, no matter who you are, or why you do it! Now if you get caught you can’t hide behind your religion, no matter what it is.

If your religious beliefs lead you to action that is legal under American or Kansas Law, such as your choice of diet, abstaining from alcohol or tobacco, pray 5 times a day (not blocking traffic), adhere to a dress code,  go to church on Sunday, synagogue on Saturday, mosque on Friday, or any other religious expression which complies with the law,  and does not infringe on the rights of others, knock yourself out!





Wafa Sultan, Ex-Muslima debates Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad

21 05 2012

The Sheik unequivocally defines Sharia Law and the Islamic world view.  He does not hesitate to point out the relationship between Dar al-Islam (House of Islam) and Dar al-Harb (House of War or non-Muslim lands),  “The relationship between us is either a pact of belief in Allah, or a peace treaty, or war.”  He goes on to define that peace treaty as a Dhimmi pact, where non-Muslims do not have equal rights with Muslims, because Allah has given the Muslim more rights and greater respect than the Khaffir (Non-Muslim).  Educated in Quran and Sharia since age of 5, Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad holds several degrees from Islamic Universities in Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) and is certainly an Islamic scholar by anyone’s standard.

Wafa Sultan, a medical doctor, who studied University of Alleppo, Syria, rejected her native religion of Islam when Muslim Brotherhood assassins riddled her professor with bullets in front of her.  A secularist, she now is a leading critic of Islam and was listed by Time magazine among the worlds 100 most influential people in 2006.  She has been quoted as saying, “The trouble with Islam is deeply rooted in its teachings.”   Watch this 8 minute video and understand the Islamic world view.





Nonie Darwish at the Jessica Mokdad Human Rignts Conference in Dearborn, MI

6 05 2012

Jessica Mokdad, 20 years old, was killed by her step-father, Rahim Alfetlawi when he followed her to her grandmother’s home in Dearborn and shot her in the head for not adhering to Muslim customs.  “Honor Killing”.  (Star Tribune Article)

The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) organized its first Human Rights Conference to bring attention to the plight of women under the tyranny of Islamic Law.  AFDI Executive Director Pamela Geller: “We’ve named the Conference after her as part of our ongoing campaign to raise awareness and bring a stop to the phenomenon of Islamic honor killing. These girls have rights, too, they’re human beings, and yet they’re completely forgotten in our politically correct culture, in which speech that is offensive to Islam is increasingly forbidden. We’re standing for the human rights of girls like Jessica Mokdad.”

 

Nonie Darwish grew up in Egypt and lived for 30 years under Sharia. I think this woman knows what she is talking about when she calls Sharia an “archaic, demonic legal system which must be abolished from the face of the Earth!”…”Sharia Law is NOT a cultural thing…and every Muslim girl is afraid of it.”

I was honored to meet Nonie in Tulsa, OK in 2011. I am humbled to stand beside her in this fight.  A small woman in stature, but more courageous than any man I know.





Michiganistan Police Shut Down Event Promoting US Constitution-TMLC Sues CAIR

1 05 2012

Need More Proof of Creeping Sharia?  Note the line in the following article about the “Founding Principles Act” which would require schools to teach the US Constitution.  This is how far we’ve come…to have to pass a law forcing schools to teach the US Constitution!?!

This article taken directly from Thomas More Law Center’s website.  Full credit to TMLC : http://www.thomasmore.org/news/irony-police-shut-down-event-promoting-us-constitution-tmlc-files-lawsuit-against-council-ameri  H/T to my friend Jim!

ANN ARBOR, MI – In the middle of an event to extol the virtues of the U.S. Constitution and “American Laws For American Courts,” the audience learned first-hand how easy it is to lose their freedom of Speech and Assembly.

Amid shouts of “What about free speech?” from the audience, the Allegan Police Department ordered the event shut-down. School officials notified police that they had received a letter complaining about the event from Dawud Walid, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI). The letter asked the school to disallow the event despite an existing contract. CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding trial in U. S. history, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation.

As a result, the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced yesterday that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR- MI), its Executive Director, the City of Allegan, theAllegan Police Department and the School District were named as defendants in a thirty-four page civil rights lawsuit filed in the Federal District Court for the Western District of Michigan, this morning. The claims included constitutional and contract violations. [Click here for copy of federal complaint]

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center commented, “It’s amazing how much clout CAIR has with the political establishment of both parties in Lansing and throughout Michigan and the nation. This, despite the fact that CAIR has its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood, was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, and the FBI’s former chief of counterterrorism, noted that CAIR, its leaders, and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.” Continued Thompson, “Press accounts make it clear that an indictment naming CAIR as a defendant in the Holy Land Foundation trial was squelched by Attorney General Holder’s office despite vehement objections by FBI agents and the federal prosecutors in Dallas.”

TMLC’s federal lawsuit was brought on behalf of State Representative David Agema; a chapter leader of ACT! for America, Elizabeth Griffin; Allegan County Commissioner, Willis Sage; and Mark Gurley, one of the event sponsors.

The event in question, entitled, “Constituting Michigan – Founding Principles Act” took place on January 26, 2012 at an Allegan High School auditorium which had been rented by Willis Sage.

The purpose of the event was to inform the public about the importance of honoring the United States Constitution, to recognize the internal threat to America posed by radical Muslims and the dangers to our free society caused by the imposition of Sharia law.

At first the Allegan police chief police indicated he shut down the event because of threats to one of the speakers, Kamal Saleem; however, shortly thereafter, the chief admitted to a reporter that there was no specific threat to the event and no real danger at all. In fact, no specific threats of violence relating to the event were received by the City of Allegan, its police department, the Allegan Public School District or Allegan Public High School.

Police gave as their reason, the appearance of one of the featured speakers, Kamal Saleem, a former Muslim terrorist who converted to Christianity. Saleem has spoken at numerous high schools and universities, Christian churches and Jewish temples across the nation. He has also spoken at the U. S. Air Force Academy, Michigan’s State Capital, and Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. At no time before the Allegan event or afterwards has an event where he has spoken been shut down by law enforcement.

Sage notified the Allegan police chief ten days before the event and invited him to check out the background of Saleem, which he never did.

Erin Mersino is the TMLC attorney handling the case.

More on Plaintiffs

State Representative David Agema is an elected State Representative for the 74th District serving in Michigan’s House of Representatives. He is a sponsor of HB 4769 entitled “Restriction of Application of Foreign Laws Act” (based on the American Laws for American Courts Model Act), which bans the use of foreign laws including Sharia law, by courts and administrative bodies of the State, when those laws conflict with fundamental rights protected by the Constitutions of the United States and the State of Michigan. Defendant Walid, is an outspoken opponent of HB 4769.

Elizabeth Griffin is a chapter leader for the organization, ACT! for America, a non-partisan, non-sectarian organization whose mission is to give Americans concerned about national security, terrorism, and the threat of radical Islam, a powerful, organized, informed and mobilized voice. Griffin promotes the “Constituting Michigan – Founding Principles Act”, which would require Michigan public schools to teach the history and Constitution of the United States. Griffin also guides and mentors chapter leaders for various chapters of the ACT! for America organization, as well as educates concerned Americans about the threat of Islamic Sharia law to our system of law in the United States.

Willis Sage is a County Commissioner for the County of Allegan, Michigan. Sage is the author of the “Constituting Michigan – Founding Principles Act,” which would require Michigan public schools to teach the history and constitution of the United States. He organized the event and rented the room at Allegan High School where the free speech event was held.

Plaintiff Mark Gurley was a sponsor of the event and paid for the airfare of Kamal Saleem. He is also an advocate of HB 4769, “Restriction of Application of Foreign Laws Act” (based on the American Laws for American Courts Model Act), sponsored by Plaintiff Agema.

Defendants’ pretextual claim that the free speech event needed to be shut-down for safety reasons subverts the true cause for halting the free speech event: complying with the demands of CAIR.ANN ARBOR, MI – In the middle of an event to extol the virtues of the U.S. Constitution and “American Laws For American Courts,” the audience learned first-hand how easy it is to lose their freedom of Speech and Assembly.





Sharia Law: What is it?

1 02 2012

If you have come to this site because of the headline question, I applaud your interest.  There is much confusion as to what Sharia is and is not.  I will endeavor to make this introduction to Sharia as simple and concise as possible, using quotes and references to Sharia’s own documentation*.  For point of reference, “Sharia” translates “the Right Path”.

Most Americans believe Sharia to be no different to Muslims than the Catechism to Catholics or church tenants to Protestant Christians.  Absolutely NOT so.  Many Islamist groups such as CAIR, MSA, MAS, MPAC, ISNA, ICNA, and many others have allowed that false idea to perpetrate and even promoted it, under the Sharia principle of “taqiyya” (deception), as a religious freedom issue protected under the Constitution.

Taqiyya is not only permission by Sharia, but direction to lie [r8.1 “…obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory…” (which Jihad/dawa is)] in order to advance the cause of Islam, which is not to convert the entire world to be Muslim; but to bring the entirety of the world under rule of Sharia.  In other words, you can be a Christian or Jew or even Zoroastrian, and live under rule of Sharia as a second class citizen.  This is called “Dhimmitude”.  It is covered in Sharia under the section on “Jihad” [o9.O] as “Non-Muslim subjects of the Islamic State (Al-Dhimma)” [subsection o11.O].  This status of “mercy” is extended to any religion whose sacred book is recognized by Islam at the time of Muhammud.  It does not include idol worshipers, pagans, athiests, Mormons, Sikhs, Bahais, etc. These people are given opportunity to convert to Islam or die.

As a “dhimmi”, or subject of Islam, you must agree to acquiesce to Islam in all things.  Pay the “Jizya tax”, the “non-Muslim poll tax” (protection money), refrain from any public display of non-Islamic religion including funerals, weddings, Barmitzva’s, ringing of church bells, display of crosses, menorah’s, Star’s of David, etc., because these practices and symbols are an affront to Islam.  You may not quote Scripture aloud, celebrate Holy Days (Christmas, Easter, Passover, etc) and pork and wine are strictly forbidden.  Proselytizing Muslims, criticizing Islam or Muhammud, and many other things are treated under the code of Sharia as subject to capital punishment[o11.11 referencing o9.14].

These are just a couple of relevant subjects discussed in Sharia. Sharia is the legal skeleton which supports the full and complete practice of Islam.  Without Sharia you have no Islam (“Submission”).  Without Sharia, Islam is powerless.

Never think for one minute that Islam is simply a religion, comparable to other religions, and Sharia is simply it’s tenants, or statement of faith.  Islam is a complete socio-political ideology with its own jurisprudence, wearing a veil of religion.

Islam, by its very nature, must not co-exist with other religions, and the “Great Commission” given to Muslims is to bring the World into subjection to Islam, establish the Sharia, so that “Allah’s religion reign Supreme” [Quran 8:39].

I mentioned earlier that Islamists are promoting Sharia as simply a religious freedom issue, protected under the Constitution of the United States.  Sharia flies in the face of the Constitution.  Under Sharia there is no separation of “mosque and state” because under Sharia the legal authority is the Imam.  Just in the few examples I set forth previously, there are numerous infringements upon individual Liberty guaranteed by the Constitution.  Freedom of speech, freedom of religious choice without government oversight, freedom of fraternization, and the list goes on.

Article Six of the US Constitution declares the Constitution to be the Law of the Land,  so therefore Sharia attempts to abrogate the Constitution.  There’s another term familiar with Islamic Jurists, “Abrogation”. (Check it out here)

There are currently running, advertisements by ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America-a Muslim Brotherhood operative) across the country on radio and billboards, which denounce man-made law (Constitution) and extol the virtues of Sharia (“God’s Law”)-they are saying “God’s Law” because if they said “Allah’s Law” you would immediately reject it.  I have heard these advertisements on the radio myself.

ICNA Billboard Kansas City, KS

It is no coincidence these ads began at the same time that most States Legislature’s convened for 2012. Some 20 states are considering “American Laws for American Courts”, or something very similar which will codify the already established and proven Constitution of the United States, prohibiting use of any jurisprudence which does not protect the rights and liberties of ALL people according to the Constitution.

Islamist groups are opposing this measure as a religious freedom issue and charging racism, xenophobia, and bigotry.  Sorry.  This law is teflon coated…those charges won’t stick.

*[Quotes and References from: “Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”, by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, accepted by Islamic Scholars around the world as the authoritative English translation]

UPDATE:  This advertising campaign coincided with hearings in Kansas (and other states) on the “American Laws for American Courts” legislation, Kansas HB 2087. This bill underscores the liberties and freedoms set forth in the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Kansas.  It will in no wise prohibit international contracts, but will protect individual freedoms and the right to be judged according to US and/or Kansas Law in court, and preclude use 0f Sharia or other law contradicting the Constitution.






Intellectuals, Jihad, Abrogation, and Dhimmi’s

8 12 2010

Intellectuals abound. Oh yes, they are everywhere. They think of themselves as, perhaps agnostic, atheistic, or secular. The thing about these “intellectuals” that I find so very humorous is these very individuals who perceive themselves as “broadminded” and “tolerant” are the most narrow minded and intolerant creatures when it comes to things they have no real knowledge of, specifically spiritual matters, or more generally “Religion”. Furthermore, what really amazes me, is in spite of their unbelief or even disdain for “religion”, they do not cease from embracing and even defending the most oppressive of all these; Islam.

As I observe the commentary from the “intellectuals” something becomes very clear: It isn’t simply that they defend and embrace Islam, but the fervent hatred with which they address and refer to Christianity and Christians. Never mind that the entirety of Western society has its basis in the Judeo-Christian ethos; if it is Christian it must be evil. If it is anti-Christian it must be good. (It isn’t yet politically correct to slander Jews in America. Jews aren’t Christians and therefore do not yet warrant the same vitriol.) Isaiah 5 speaks of those calling “evil good and good evil.” Romans puts it, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”

Education does not equal intelligence; nor does knowledge equal wisdom. Education is simply information transfer and knowledge is the retention of that information. Intelligence is the capacity to process that information. But wisdom… Wisdom is spiritual.

Wisdom is that rare quality of discernment which guides the proper dispensation and application of knowledge. You cannot obtain wisdom from instructors; worldly wisdom comes only from objective assessment of world experience. Likewise, godly wisdom comes from experiencing God. Therefore, the “intellectual” has placed himself at an obvious disadvantage when assessing things of a spiritual or religious nature.

Many critics throw out the “Crusades” as proof that Christianity is just as wicked as any other religion. Then also, terms like “Christian terrorist” when referring to people like Scott Roeder, (murderer of the abortion provider, Dr. George Tiller) or Timothy McVeigh, convicted of the Oklahoma City bombing. These are used in order to deflect criticism of Islamic terrorism or try and make the point that Islamic terrorists are but an extreme element and Christianity has its own terrorists. (You can hear this on any radio talk show or website which discusses Islam.)

I would never stoop to defend or justify any murderer nor advocate any such actions of these criminals as justified on any political or religious basis. I have previously set forth my argument for evaluating a religion according to its own founding documents or scriptures. (See Fundamentals)

Admittedly, there have been some horrendous things done throughout history in the name of Christianity. Not only to Muslims, but more-so to Jews and to Christians who refused to acquiesce to Papal authority. However, such an act that is done under the banner of “Christianity” by an individual, group, government or even a church, is not found as a directive in Christian scripture. Therefore, the responsibility lies not at the feet of the religion, but squarely upon those who perpetrated the acts. Nowhere will you find a scriptural reference to the man Jesus commanding an earthly army or admonishing his followers to advance Christianity or any religion by the sword.

Islam on the other hand, has instructions given for jihad, holy war, in the Quran. It is very specific in who and how to kill unbelievers and apostates. In fact, it warns against refusing to make war upon the unbelievers, and advises Muslims not to befriend non-Muslims. If you question the definition of ‘jihad’ look no further than Shari’a itself*. The first line (o9.0) reads: “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion…” There are nearly 8 pages of instruction on how to conduct jihad, its Quranic justification, its obligatory character, the objectives of jihad, the spoils of war, and so on. In all those pages only one line states of the “greater jihad”, the inner struggle, “it is the spiritual warfare against the lower self”. This latter definition is the one given for Western consumption. *[Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law]

Jihad is justified when Islam is insulted. To insult Islam one needs to do no more than reject it. Sharia requires that an invitation to Islam is given to non-Muslims. If rejected, this is seen as an offence to Islam and consequently justifies jihad as a “defensive” action. Medieval Islam had reached the zenith of its empire by jihad. History has shown it will only co-exist long enough to re-arm, regroup, and gain strategic advantage. Once it has the advantage, the battle continues.

There also seems to be some confusion among those “intellectuals” about history, some citing jihad as a response to the Crusades.

For context here is the historical timeline: Judaism founded by the Hebrews circa 1400 BC. Jesus Christ crucified 33 AD and Christianity founded by Jews in 1st Century in Jerusalem. Roman Church established 325 AD by Constantine. Mohammad gets his first vision in 610 AD establishing Islam and dies in AD 632. Islam conquers from Central Asia across North Africa and by 750 AD has advanced into France where it is finally stopped at Tours. (The Crusades to reclaim Jerusalem for Rome would not be declared for another 300 years.)

The establishment of the historical timeline is significant in understanding Islam today. There is a principal, a law established in Quran known as “Abrogation”. This single word and principal is perhaps the most important tenet in Islam.

Quran is very unique among the texts of ‘revealed religion’, in that it invokes this principal known as “abrogation”. That is to say, “the latter annuls the former”. In other words, the earlier peaceful revelations to Mohammad are abrogated by the later, more violent revelations. Mohammad was quite a peaceful and affable individual early in his ministry, but after the Meccans put out a warrant on him he fled to Medina, where he gained strength militarily. Mohammad began raiding Meccan caravans as retribution. Eventually, this violence increased culminating in a war which the ‘Prophet’ was victorious being personally militarily involved.

This law of “abrogation” is discussed in Quran concerning the disclosure of Sura’s to Mohammad as a progression of revelation, bringing Mohammad and his Companions from point A to point B slowly and in stages. This is the model set forth by Islamic scholars for the strategy of covering the entire world with the cloak of Islam. You see, the historical ‘revealed religions’ occur sequentially. First came Judaism, then came Christianity, and finally comes Islam. Islam teaches that each successive religion abrogates the former until Islam reigns supreme, and without opposition. So much for “co-existence”.

To my “intellectual” friends I would simply impart this fair warning: Christians and Jews are known in Al Quran as “People of the Book”. Once conquered, if they do not choose to convert to Islam, these are afforded the status of “Dhimmi” if they agree to submit to the authority of Islam and pay the Jizya (poll tax). Dhimmi must acquiesce to Muslims in everything and have no equity with Muslims. Atheists and pagans are offered no such clemency. There is only conversion or death. There is no tolerance for “intellectual dissention”.

Please do not simply dismiss this information. Do some reading to see if it isn’t so. The current narrative is being written by Islam. It cannot be trusted. Never forget the Islamic doctrine of “abrogation”.

I do not advocate bigotry toward Muslims; only understanding that Islam is antithetical to the American system of government, to the Judeo-Christian ethos, to liberty and choice, and equality before the law. Islam has its own socio-political system which emanates from Shari’a. It is not simply a “religion”.

Prove me wrong.





The Great Black Beast

14 11 2010

The first victim of Islam is the Muslim.

September 11, 2001

Islam is a great black beast that engulfs everything in its path, shutting out the light of reason. It buries people under a system of control which allows no freedom of thought, debate or criticism. Islam cannot stand up against any questioning of its authority; this is precisely the reason that it reacts swiftly and sometimes violently when challenged. In fact, the more control Islam has over a society the more violent the response to a challenge of its authority.

You will note that those nations whose government allows Sharia (Islamic Sacred Law) to be the law of the land, such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan, Kuwait, UAE, and Yemen, just to name a few, are among the most oppressive societies in the world, especially to Muslim women. Many other countries which have a dual system in which Muslims are permitted to use Sharia courts to determine legal or social matters, may not be constitutionally ruled by Sharia, but in all practicality use self imposed Sharia. These would be countries such as Somalia, Kenya, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Again, not exactly bastions of freedom and tolerance.

These countries which embrace Sharia are known for harsh punishments and swift judgments. A small boy may have his hand slowly crushed while driven over by a car for stealing a piece of candy. He is fortunate. If he was of age, his hand would be cut off. A young teenage woman who is raped by her cousin must produce four male witnesses to testify on her behalf that she was not compliant in the sexual act; otherwise she may very well be stoned to death for adultery. In some cases, her own family will execute her for “dishonoring” the family.

Worldwide there are 5,000 of these “Honor Killings” every year, most of which are performed by immediate family members. In the United States alone there have been at least 19 documented honor killings since 1989. In Irvine, Texas, 2008 Amina and Sarah Said were two beautiful teenage girls whose father shot them both at point blank range in the back seat of his car and left them to bleed to death. Why? They were “behaving like western girls”. He was never apprehended. Noor Almaleki, 20, died in November, 2009 after she and her boyfriend’s mother were run over by her father in a Peoria, Ariz., parking lot. The father was dishonored because she rejected her marriage in Iraq. Palestina Isa, 16, of St. Louis, MO was brutally stabbed to death by her father while her mother held her down and repeatedly said, “Die my daughter, Die”! Her crimes? She had taken a part time job and was spending time with an African-American boy.

Public stoning, burning or even beheadings have been known across the Islamic world, for what sometimes amounts to a false accusation of adultery by someone in the community. Pick up a DVD of “The Stoning of Soraya M.” and witness a true story of a divorce seeking Persian who brings false charges of adultery against his wife when she refuses his demands. In typical Sharia fashion, under direction of the local Imam, she is convicted, bound, and buried from her waist down. Each villager throws a stone until she is dead. Many of these types of barbaric executions of violators of Sharia are captured on video and are done in a ritualistic fashion amounting to nothing less than human sacrifice.

What is it that can move a Palestinian mother to wrap a cellophane bag around her own daughters head while she sleeps, and slice her wrists with a razor? In West Bank, the village of Abu Qash, 17 year old Rofayda refused to commit suicide after her brothers raped and impregnated her. So her 43 year old mother waited until she went to sleep and killed her in order to restore the “family’s honor”. The execution of her sixth born child took 20 minutes, confessed Amira Qaoud. Fatima, 9, the youngest surviving child said, “My mother did this because she does not want us to be punished by people. I love my mother much more now than before.” Stunning!

The Palestinian media is fraught with images of young children 3 to 5 years old being taught to repeat songs and phrases, such as “Kill the Jew” and “Death to Israel”. They are taught from the earliest ages to hate Israel and America, and that, as former terrorist Kamal Saleem says his mother taught him, “My son, when you kill a Jew your right hand will glow with glory before Allah.” A cartoon ‘Mickey Mouse’ type character leads children in singing songs that refer to Jews as “pigs and monkeys” and reinforce the rhetoric that it is glorious to kill Jews, if even by suicide bombing.

How can this be? What can possess parents to teach their children that the highest calling they could ever aspire to is to die “Shahid”, a martyr in the cause of advancing the religion of Allah? This is insanity.

Avi Lipkin, well known author and speaker, has written several books on the subject. He rightly identifies Islam as a religion of insanity. It consumes people to the point they can no longer enjoy life and are obsessed by death. As the infamous Fort Hood shooter, Nidal Hasan, expresses in his power point presentation given at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in 2007, “We love death more than you love life”. Islam is the largest death cult in the world. When you have Islamic leaders like Iran’s Ahmadinejad, who has time and again threatened Israel’s very existence, who believes that he is the predecessor to the Twelfth Imam and in order to hastened the Imam’s return from the cave, must create chaos in the Earth, now the world has a problem.

Ok, so now I can hear my critics saying, “These are extremists! They do not represent the true Islam!” To you I simply say, “Read the books of Islam.” Then read my previously written article on this site entitled “Fundamentals”. What the world is witnessing today is Islam is returning to its foundations. Seyyid Qutb called for it nearly 50 years ago. The current “Century of Islam” is upon us. It began in 1979 on November 20, the New Year 1400 on the Islamic calendar. This is the time designated for Islam to conquer the entire Earth. For you Bible scholars it is the beast of the Revelation.

The ironic phenomena occurring in the Islamic world is the startling number of Muslims converting to Jesus Christ! They are coming by the tens of thousands out of the great black beast and into the light of Truth. Muslims who have become disillusioned and disgusted with the unbearable burden of Islam are calling out to God, and He is answering.

Sheik Ahmad Al Khatani, president of The Companions Lighthouse for the Science of Islamic Law in Libya, recently lamented in an interview on Al Jazeera TV that there are 16,000 Muslims in North Africa converting to Christianity every day! Reports from all across the Islamic world are coming that Muslims are seeking truth in earnest and are receiving visions and dreams of Jesus Christ by the thousands!

Up until now I have regarded the Islamic invasion of America as evil and very dangerous. While I still believe that the system of Islam is evil and very dangerous, I now look at it as an opportunity. Listen to me well: Islam is evil, Muslims are not evil. Muslims are victims! Islam, the beast, consumes people who have a God given thirst for Him. When the truth of God is absent or forbidden the human spirit is nevertheless famished for spiritual fulfillment and a reason for existence. It will accept whatever is offered; sometimes having no choice. Islam is not a choice for millions upon millions of people; It is foisted upon them. It is the only thing allowed in many places, saturating the media, culture, music, and traditions so much so that everything you see, touch, smell, hear, and even think is limited to Islam. The deeper one gets into it, the less light is available to illuminate and expose the lie. Most Muslims are not Muslim by choice, even if they profess to be. They are subject to the heaviest and most restrictive religious cult in the world.

No, Muslims are not the enemy! Islam is the enemy. If this “religion” is allowed to continue creeping across America, America too will find itself bound in the shadow of the Great Black Beast.
Salaam!





Communist Invasion or Islamic Colonialism?

1 10 2010

Sometime in the future the morning headline reads:

“America Invaded: New Totalitarian Government Established”

As you read the story that follows, you learn that Communists from America’s old arch nemesis, Russia have been successfully infiltrating American institutions for the last 30 years. The “invasion” was not the expected typical military type where the Red Army poses an amphibious assault accompanied by paratroopers, air strikes and hoards of infantry and hardware. No this invasion has been much more covert; so much so that the American public has even assisted the enemy in achieving a stealth invasion and consequent subversion of existing government and society.

Slowly, and steadily, agents were strategically placed in American media that were sympathetic to the Communist cause, and given orders to influence and subvert all information to enhance the public view of Communism on news and entertainment venues throughout the land. Leadership positions inside trade unions, civic organizations, and sports clubs had been infiltrated by dues paying members whom no one ever suspected of having subversive ideologies contrary to the American way of life. The United States Government played an impressive role in bringing these agents inside by issuing thousands of work and student visas to applicants from countries under Communist rule. Many never reported to class.

They were even allowed under American law to establish nonprofit organizations to propagate their message and raise funding and recruit new members for foreign military operations that would endanger Americans and our allies, both at home and abroad. These organizations brandish such titles as: “Communist Students of America (CSA)”, “North American Communist Trust” (NACT), “Communist Society of North America”(CSNA), and “Communist American Youth Association” (CAYA). These were but a few of the groups under the umbrella of the Communist Brotherhood, a known terrorist organization bent on spreading communism across the world and bringing the entire globe under Communist rule.

Government offices, departments and bureau’s, as well as private corporations, had been unwittingly hiring employees and contractors whose intended purpose was to infiltrate and network inside these institutions in order to bring them under control of the Party. Anyone who objected or tried to inform the public of what was happening was instantly relegated by the media to the “fringes” and labeled “Commiephobes”. Even the American military had been infiltrated by these tactics as peer pressure and fear of losing pensions, and positions kept officers and supervisors from exposing these Communist agents, even though they were openly propagating Communist ideology in briefings and classrooms.

Academic centers from major universities right on down to the elementary grade schools had been encouraged by the Department of Education, teachers unions and text book publishers to teach students the virtues of Communism while ignoring the human rights violations that perpetuate the reality of Communist run states. Many teachers and classrooms had been invited by local Communist Party leaders to bring students to participate in educational activities at known Communist education centers, which introduced them to the Communist ideology and invited the students to actually take part in some of the activities reserved strictly for Party members, including learning the credo of all faithful Party members. All the while, the message to the students is the superiority of Communism and the inferiority of all other forms of government.

“How could this have happened?” you ask yourself, stunned to find armed guards standing on your very own neighborhood street corner. Martial law has been declared and you awoke this morning to the brand new Peoples Republic of Amerika.

Sound ludicrous?

Of course. Everyone knows that Americans would never stand by and let Communists infiltrate and subvert our society and government, yes even help them by encouraging fellow Americans to “accept and tolerate” the Communist propaganda perpetrated throughout our media. Neither would our citizens, under the guise of “pluralism”, accept the indoctrination of our students and children as an “alternative belief system” through our schools. The moment parents witnessed their 5th grader reciting the Communist Manifesto and pretending to be Karl Marx or Joe Stalin, the local school board would be inundated with angry complaints demanding this ideology be stripped from the curriculum. (Well… one would hope this would be the case.)

However, this is precisely what has happened and is happening at this very moment. With one minor difference. Go back and read the “fictional” story and substitute the word “Communist” with the word “Islam” or Muslim”. Now it is no longer fictional. It is fact.

Islam has been infiltrating America for 30 years at every level. And while we have not yet awaken to find ourselves living under Sharia Law, that morning may not be far off.

It is fact that Islam has made deep inroads into American society via every major facet of culture, finance, education and government, as well as religion. We now see mainstream Protestant churches welcoming Islamic clerics for “interfaith dialogue” with their congregants. Mostly, “interfaith dialogue” is a euphemism for “Islam speaks, Christians listen”. A historic Christian church in Denver, CO added a Shiite Muslim cleric to their staff in 2004, to head up their “Abrahamic Initiative”, while maintaining his position as head of the Islamic Center of Ahl Al-Beit in west Denver. Huh?

Sharia compliant finance is fast becoming a standard policy of major banks and corporations worldwide. The White House just recently brought in a “White House Fellow”, Samir Ali, who has been working for the law firm Hogan Lovells – which claims to have advised on more than 200 Islamic finance transactions with an aggregate deal value in excess of $40 billion. Her duties in the Department of Homeland Security, according to the White House website: “She is responsible for counseling clients on mergers & acquisitions, cross-border transactions, Shariah-compliant transactions, project finance and international business matters. During her time with Hogan Lovells, she has been a founding member of the firm’s Abu Dhabi office.”

Other Obama Administration appointees include: Rashaad Hussain, Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Conference (the worldwide Islamic religion’s delegation to the United Nations); Kareem Shora, Advisory Council, DHS; Dalia Mogahed, Advisor to the President on issues facing the Muslim Community in the United States (an outspoken proponent of Sharia Law); Arif Alikhan, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development, DHS.

In Fort Hood, Texas, the political correctness in the US Army became obvious as Major Nidal Hasan declared jihad and killed 13 soldiers and wounded 43 more in the name of Allah, “the Beneficent, the Merciful”. Hasan had been speaking and telegraphing his future actions for months. While stationed outside Washington he attended the well known Dar al-Hijra (Land of Migration) Mosque, in Falls Church, VA. In 2007, at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, he gave a presentation entitled, “The Koranic World View As It Relates to Muslims in the U.S. Military”, in which he laid out the problems and misgivings of Muslims in the American military of the United States deploying Muslims to fight Muslims. He went on to quote both Koran and Hadith passages which instruct Muslims to fight non-Muslims and bring them under submission of Islam. On his slide number 48 he says, “We love death more then (sic) you love life”. His recommendation was this, “Department of Defense should allow Muslim Soldiers the option of being released as “Conscientious objectors” to increase troop morale and decrease adverse events.” (Nidal Hasan) [Emphasis added] After the shooting, several reports surfaced about people who voiced concern, or noticed these signs, and yet nothing was done for fear of “rocking the boat”.

[Out of this tragic loss of our noble soldiers, who perished under enemy fire (IMO), comes one small shred of satisfaction: Hasan, the great mujahidin, was not permitted the status of martyrdom, rejected by Allah, and taken down by an infidel woman nearly half his size, who pumped 3 rounds into him before he could shoot himself or anyone else. He will not walk again and faces the death penalty. Poetic justice indeed.]

Islamic network organizations abound in the US of which many have been tied to recruiting and financing terrorism. They enjoy the status and protections under American law as “charitable”, “research”, and “civil rights” organizations yet have the unified goal of replacing American law with Sharia, and thus the destruction of the United States as we have known it. These groups are as follows: MAYA (Muslim Arab Youth Association), AIG (American Islamic Group), ICW (Islamic Cultural Workshop), CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), AMC (American Muslim Council), ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America), MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Council), AMA (American Muslim Alliance), ISNA (Islamic Society of North America). These groups and many more are part of an umbrella group known as “Muslim Brotherhood” or “The Ikwan”.

Steven Emerson, perhaps America’s foremost authority on Islamic Terrorism, authored “American Jihad-The Terrorists Living Among Us”, in which he exposes these groups and their ties to Al-Qaida, HAMAS, Hizballah and Islamic Jihad, all four terrorist groups which are present in many cities across the United States. For instance, HAMAS is active in Kansas City, Dallas, Tucson, LA, New York, and Houston. Al Qaida is active in Ft. Lauderdale, Boston, Columbia, MO, and Arlington, TX. These groups are not new; many have been here dating back to the 1970’s.

Something that is fairly new is the appearance of charter schools sponsored or administrated by more benign Islamic groups. Many of these non-militant groups are of Turkish origin and can be traced to Fethullah Gulen, a Turk who lives in Saylorsburg, PA. Students receive a well disciplined education in the sciences and the arts, and also a generous dose of Islamic indoctrination. Many of these schools receive Federal money. Mr. Gulen can be associated with at least 85 of these charter schools in the United States. He is known here as an educator, and philanthroper, but in Turkey, he is known as the single most powerful influence pushing the historically secularized Turkish government toward Islamization. He escaped Turkey in 1998, fleeing to the US, avoiding charges of sedition against the government of Turkey. In 2002, the FBI was pressing to deport him, but the Bush administration stopped the process. Mr. Gulen has enjoyed the admiration of three US Presidents to date, and has been key in establishment of, not only Islamic charter schools, but aided by the Bush administration, the “Institute for Interfaith Dialogue” as well as a myriad of other groups such as “Raindrop Turkish House”, “Turquoise Council of American-Eurasians”(TCAE), The Gulen Institute, Atlas Foundation, and EbruTV. These organizations all form intercultural relationships with key American administrators, businesses, government offices on all levels, legislators, and civil services.

The formal description in Islam is “Dawa”. This is basically “peaceful jihad”. The strategy is this: Americans reject violent jihad (terrorism). However, they do seem to have great respect for smiling gentlemen in business suits from cultures and societies other than their own. The ultimate objective is the same as the jihadi’s, only the means are different. Establishment of Sharia, and the “Global Ummah” (Islamic community).

Another method that seems to be gaining popularity is unabashed barging into the public school system through textbooks which contain heavy Islamic influenced propaganda extolling the virtues of the “one true religion” and barely a passing mention to Christianity and Judaism.

If that isn’t bold enough take a look at this video in which a Massachusetts public school classroom was invited for a “field day at the Mosque” and then invited to pray with the Muslims.

Still not convinced? Go back to sleep. The morning paper will be on your doorstep…





Kansas Jihad

2 04 2010

This is a departure from my current theme, however since I have seen nothing concerning this story in major or mainstream media, including the Topeka, Kansas newspaper (Topeka Capital Journal) I thought my readers deserve to know.

Forty one Kansas State Legislators recently received emails from a Pakistani (illegal) immigrant inviting them to convert to Islam. My district Representative began to forward them to me as she received them, asking for my thoughts. There were numerous Islamic doctrinal statements and books attached to these emails. They began almost the same day that a group of Muslims visited the State Capital in order to improve relations between Turkey and Kansas (TCAE) based out of Houston, Tx. It should be noted I have not found a connection to this group.

I advised my Representative as well as several others that this could be a sign of an impending attack on the Capital or Legislators. It turns out Kansas was not the only Legislature targeted by these emails. At the least, Oklahoma had received the same kind of “invitation”, and there may have been others.

The emails were sent by Javid Kamal, living in Dallas, and with just a bit of “googling” I found he was from Pakistan, and had listed anti-Israel/anti-Western comments on a pro-Iranian website. I didn’t realize he was in America illegally until after his arrest by FBI on Friday, March 26. He  has been deported back to Pakistan. At least that is what I have been told.

According to Islam, there are three options for a “kafur” (unbeliever/infidel). Convert, Submit, or Die. If you convert to Islam, you are welcomed into Dar-al-Islam (House of Islam) as a brother. If you don’t convert, you have two options: Submit or Die. If you choose to submit, you can live under Islamic rule as a second class citizen (dhimmi) with the obligation to yield to Muslims in everything and pay the jizya tax (protection money).  Don’t choose to convert, or submit, you must die. This is the ideology of the Fundamentalist Muslim and the directive of Islam. Islam by the way translates “Submission”.  World wide conquest is the fundamental goal of Islam, either by conversion or conquest, but Islam must dominate the world. This is not my opinion, this is what Islamic Books say (Koran, Hadith, etc).

We in America fail to understand this very basic concept of what we are dealing with. If you do not belong to Dar Al Islam then you are in Dar Al Harb, “House of War”. It’s pretty self explanatory.

Muslims are required by Koran and Hadith to give “invitation” to accept Islam prior to committing a violent jihad.

Mr. Kamal’s last letter of Sunday March 21 was indicated as his “final notice” to the Kansas officials. When the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) showed up in Dallas, he was not to be found at home or work, and not even his family knew where he was.

However, the fact remains that news media remains silent on this story.

***RELATED POST***

TCAE has an affiliate in Lenexa, Ks. (Kansas City) called “Raindrop Turkish House” (google it) whose mission is to “promote and encourage continuing good relationship and create an opportunity to further enrich our cultural understanding by bringing together the leaders of the State [of] Kansas and the members from Turkish parliament.”

Several Kansas dignitaries have taken “junkets” to Turkey funded by this organization, which hosts social events for government organizations and officials ranging from Legislators, to Fire Department Chiefs, city mayors, to the local FBI division.

Turkey’s desire is to play the role of a bridge between East and West.

Ok.





Milestones in review

26 01 2010

I recently read the book Milestones by Seyyid Qutb.  He is considered by some to be the father of the modern Islamic revolution.

Milestones was written from an Egyptian prison in 1964. Qutb had spent 2 years in America several years prior, and reported that his prejudices had been confirmed concerning American depravity. America was ripe for the picking.

Qutb’s book wasn’t his first, or his longest work, but perhaps Milestones has had the most impact on the modern world. Although some attribute the modern “Islamic Revolution” to this book, that was not exactly the outcome that Qutb desired.

Actually, Islamic Revival was his desire and purpose. Milestones was to be the “vanguard” publication to accomplish this[p. 12]. By initiating a revival of Islam among those who profess it, the natural outcome would then be an alteration of the course of human history. Revolution would not be necessary, but world conquest would be at hand. Revival of the fundamentals of Islam within the culture itself would make Islam irresistible in both principle and on the battlefield. A revived and truly Muslim population in the cause of Allah would be invincible.

Islam had, according to Qutb, become compromised by moderates and liberals (Muslim) who, for various reasons, embraced Western Culture and prosperity. Obviously the development of Middle Eastern oil fields was responsible for most of this merging of the two worlds, and the petro-dollar brought an ancient culture roaring forward into the industrialized 20th century with so much speed, there was no time for gradual adaptation. Yet today, there is a stark contrast within these countries, and without the petro-dollar they would shrivel back into the desert survivalist culture of a mere century ago.

Seyyid was disturbed by the fact that Muslims, during the first half of the 20th Century, were with a few exceptions, content to “live and let live”, professing Islam while immersed in ‘Jahili’ (the state of ignorance of guidance of Allah) culture. A Muslim should withdraw from all Jahilayyah relationships and become joined completely to Islam just as Muhammad and the Companions had disavowed all ties to polytheism and its adherents. A Muslim cannot be true Muslim, submitted to Allah, and retain any ties to non-Islamic influences. Qutb laments, “This is why the true Islamic values never enter our hearts, why our minds are never illuminated by Islamic concepts, and why no group of people arises among us who are of the caliber of the first generation of Islam.” He then adjures, “We must return to that pure source from which those people derived their guidance…[their]concepts of…the universe, the nature of human existence…Our aim is first to change ourselves so that we may later change the society…this system which is fundamentally at variance with Islam…”

Qutb’s call to all Islam was a return to Fundamentalism, that being the founding principles of Islam. This “revival” within Islam would then lead to political reformation in Islamic countries, bringing to bear those governments which had established within their own constitutions; that Islam is the official state religion and Islamic jurisprudence (Shari’a) is the law of the land. This move to “right” Egypt’s secularized government along with his fellow members of “Muslim Brotherhood” is the reason he was imprisoned and consequently executed by “The Arab Republic of Egypt” in 1966.

Egypt was but one of the Islamic Republics which had not implemented Shari’a as enumerated in its own constitution. Turkey is the most widely known which has managed, even today, to maintain a modicum of separation (though currently very tenuous) between religion and state; for practical purposes a secularized government. The United States has, in fact, assisted in the establishment of two of the latest Islamic Republics of the world; Iraq and Afghanistan, complete with constitutions which name Islam as the official religion.

Seyyid Qutb goes on in Milestones to express disdain for Muslim apologists who insist that “Jihad” is simply defensive war [p. 61, 62].  He refers to them as “defeatists” [p. 57], and explains that Jihad is the means by which to establish the Divine Law (Shari’a) [p. 62, 63].  Jihad, according to Qutb as well as Koran, is offensive action that “tries to annihilate all those political and material powers which stand between people and Islam…It is not the intention of Islam to force its beliefs on people, but Islam is not merely ‘belief’.”[p. 61] Then he clarifies, “…in an Islamic system there is room for all kinds of people to follow their own beliefs, while obeying the laws of the country which are themselves based on the Divine authority (Shari’a).” [p. 61]

In other words, you can believe whatever you want, but you will live according to Shari’a Law. This is the mission of Islam defined: Not to convert the entire world to Islamic belief; but to bring the entire world under submission to Shari’a, or Islamic Law. [p. 58]

Muslims are not to commit allegiance to a nation or state or geographic area. Neither is a Muslim bound by any commitment or loyalty or oath to non-Muslims. Only to Allah does one claim or pledge allegiance.  Only through Islam is any relationship, contractual or filial valid. “A Muslim has no country except that part of the earth where the Shari’a of [Allah] is established and human relationships are based on the foundation of relationship with [Allah]; a Muslim has no nationality except his belief, which makes him a member of the Muslim community in Dar ul Islam; a Muslim has no relatives except those who share the belief in [Allah]…” [p. 108, 109]

Dar ul Islam is the “house of Islam” which “is that place where the Islamic state is established and the Shari’a is the authority…” The rest of the world is the “house of war” or Dar ul Harb. “A Muslim can have only two possible relations with Dar ul Harb: peace with a contractual agreement [hudna or truce], or war.” [p. 118]

Seyyid further explains, “But any place where the Islamic Shari’a is not enforced and where Islam is not dominant becomes [Dar ul Harb]”. [p. 124]

In the closing paragraphs of Milestones, Qutb conjures macabre images referring to his title, “This intricate point requires deep thought…to whatever country or period of time they belong; for this guarantees that they will be able to see the milestones of the road clearly and without ambiguity, and establishes the path for those who wish to traverse it to the end…Then they will not be anxious, while traversing this road ever paved with skulls and limbs and blood and sweat, to find help and victory…” [p. 158]

This book, the “vanguard” of modern Islamic Fundamentalism, written in 1964 has inspired Jihadists, Mujahidin and Shahada (“martyrs” aka suicide bombers) for 45 years. Seyyid Qutb is considered Shahid by fundamentalist Muslims around the world. I have read several books from and on Islam and would recommend Milestones as essential reading for one who desires to understand the purpose and designs of modern Islam and the resolve of Islamic fundamentalists.
