3 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Islam

18 12 2015

Many Americans still are confused about Islam, thanks to propaganda from Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR, MPAC, ISNA, ICNA, Muslim Students Assn, etc.

This video says in 9 minutes what I’ve been saying the last 9 years.  Take a look!





The Myth of “Self Radicalization” and the Fallacy of “Radical Islam”

4 12 2015

This article is a repost from 2 years ago.  I have edited and updated it slightly.  It is as much, if not more relevant today. -DTN

Media Trilobites and government officials continue to bump into each other, feeding on nonsensical buzz words that become trendy for a few weeks and are eventually absorbed into the pop culture lexicon.  These phrases or terms may lie dormant for ages until suddenly they’re on every television commentator’s lips.  If we can’t find a word in the English language to spin up to instant glory, we’ll borrow one from another language.  Al Gore did just that when he described himself as having “gravitas” during his run for the White House. Nearly instantaneously, every talking head in the country was using the heavy Latin word, until finally Chris Mathews commented that Barack Obama’s gravitas caused a tingle to run up his leg.  It kinda lost its punch after that.

But the real point here is the incessant blathering about “self radicalized” terrorists, specifically the brothers Tsarnaev, better known as the Boston Bombers, who were responsible for nearly 270 maimed, wounded, or dead, and now the “San Bernadino Terrorists”who have now been proven to be fundamentalist Muslims and are celebrated as “Shahid” (martyrs) around the globe.  They were not “violent extremists”.  They were Mujahideen, “soldiers of Allah”, on jihad.

Disregarding the obvious elephant in the room, both the government and the media, began hunting for fleas and swatting at gnats.  “Whatever could be the reason for this horrendous tragedy?”  In the Boston Bombing case the story line continued for hours into days that this had to be the work of some “right wing extremists”, and even the President floated a hint or two about April 15th being “tax day”, of course insinuating it was a right-wing tax protest, obviously connected to the Tea Party.

Even before the victims at San Bernadino were removed from the horrific scene of the attack, commentators, reporters and officials were forming a narrative of “3 White Males dressed in military fatigues and body armor“.  Many of the reporters were hoping they were White Supremist’s, not even holding out the possibility of a terrorist attack.  In fact, there seemed to be a refusal to even consider the possibility of the shooters having any ties to Islam, continuing, like CNN’s Harry Houck and law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes, to speculate “right-wingers” were most likely the culprit; Fuentes surmising it to be “an anti-government domestic militia group”. [H/T Newsbusters]

After all, there have been so many “right wing” attacks – Like the first bombing of the World Trade Center back in ’93; no wait, that was Islamic jihad.  Oh, like the 911 attacks when Tea Party members flew passenger airliners into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and were headed for the White House; oh…sorry, those were Islamic jihadist hijackers. Well, like the DC Snipers who terrorized the city for 3 weeks in 2002; no wait, they were Islamic also.  Well then there was the White Supremacist, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who killed one soldier and wounded another in front of the recruiting office in Arkansas in 2009; sorry, again Islamic jihad.

Well…there are so many events that are known to have connections to “conservative right wing Christian radicals” such as: The Fort Hood Massacre when that Christian shooter yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he gunned down 40 people, killing 13.  The 2009 Riverdale New York bomb plot planned by 4 radical Tea Party grandma’s, the Times Square Bomber who had his SUV full of propane tanks and fireworks (surely some redneck like Larry the Cable Guy), the “Fort Dix Six”, the “Underwear Bomber”, the “Shoe Bomber”, etcetera ad nauseam.

My, my, what could it be? What ever could it be that is initiating all these attacks and plots?

[According to this Congressional report, there have been well over 60 successful, attempted, or plotted Islamic Jihad Terrorist attacks on US soil between 9-11-2001 and Jan of 2013.]

Of course, most of these were played off as “Lone Wolf” scenarios where the terrorist was “self-radicalized”.

Listening to all the ‘crack investigative reporters and hard-hitting journalists’, one could come to the conclusion that these guys just must wake up one morning and “self-radicalize” deciding today is a good day to kill some people’.

This term is a copout for lazy journalists and downright deceiving when used by anyone.  A person cannot “self-radicalize” any more than “self-socialize”.  There must be a cause, a mentor, or an ideology that brings a person to the point that he is willing to, no, compelled to kill random people that he doesn’t even know.

That mentor, in many cases, is a spiritual leader.  That cause, or ideology, which is that rather enormous and obnoxious “elephant in the room” that none of the trilobites are willing to discuss?  Islam.

Forget Islam as a Religion

The sooner Americans refuse to continue accepting Islam as a viable and peaceful “religion” and begin to view it as the sociopolitical ideology that it truly is, the greater the possibility the America will survive its onslaught.

The root problem for America is not that Islam has come to colonize her, which it has, but the fact that we have allowed “multi-culturalism” (immigration without assimilation) and “pluralism” (all cultures, ideologies, realities are equal) to progress unchecked resulting in a “balkanized” or “tribal” society wherein competing ideologies are viewed as co-equal.  Not all ideologies are conducive to civilized society, nor are they consistent with the basic premise of freedom, as established in America’s founding documents.

If I were to try to convince you that Germany’s National Socialism (Nazism) is a peaceful ideology that was hijacked by a few “self radicalized” individuals, resulting in the holocaust, you’d laugh in my face.  Well, that’s a pretty good comparison: You have a ‘prophet’ by the name of Hitler who sought to consolidate power under a banner of a unified ideology by clearing the field of competing ideologies, and went to war in order to stoke the economy and gain control of more land area.  Had Muhammad access to German weapons of mass destruction he would certainly not have hesitated to use them.   Hitler’s Holocaust resulted in an estimated 11 Million deaths, many of which were communist (because Karl Marx was Jewish), mentally or physically handicapped, Jehovah’s Witness, homosexual, or Christian leaders such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer who refused to place their names upon the “Aryan Clause” and become “Reich Churches” to do the bidding of the “almighty Fuhrer”.   But his “Final Solution” for 6 million Jews had already been proven and prescribed by Islam’s prophet Muhammad in the Arabian Peninsula 1400 years prior in places with such names as Banu Quaraysa and Khaybar, where Muhammad slaughtered unarmed male prisoners and enslaved the girls, and women, finally appropriating all Jewish property to Muslims.

Both economies required perpetual war.  (The fundamental Islamic world view is “Dar al-Islam” or Dar al-Harb: The world is divided and you either dwell in the “House of Islam”, where Islam rules, or you dwell in the “House of War” and are subject to Jihad.)

Both ideologies have religious overtones (Hitler was worshipped and given a godlike status).  Both ‘prophets’ were consumed with power.  Both cultures fostered distrust and suspicion (Gestapo was everywhere and anyone who challenged the Prophet was dealt with harshly.)  Both Nazism and Islam are fundamentally racist.   Neither can compete philosophically with opposing values, absent of an oppressive legal system or war.

Consider the following argument:

“Well, you know those “Brown Shirts” are really not as bad as the SS or Gestapo.  Now those SS are some evil dudes.  SS are the real “radical” Nazi’s.  The Brownshirts might beat you up but those SS will kill you!  We really need to reach out to those individuals and find out why they hate us so much.  But most of the Nazi’s are moderate.  They aren’t violent at all.  Sure, they go to the rallies where Hitler is speaking, but they’re just normal folks like you and me!  They want the same for their families as we all want.  Yeah, Nazism is actually a very patriotic and peaceful ideology, it’s just been hijacked by some radicals who seek to politicize it, and destroy property and kill people and take their property in the name of this peaceful movement.” 

Well, as you can see this defense of Nazism just doesn’t fly!  Ironically, this is the exact apologetic defense that Islam gets from not only the American mainstream media, but from our government as well!

“Self Radicalization”

This term makes about as much sense as “Obamacare”.  An individual who is willing to commit a violent act of mass murder and mayhem in the name of his god, or any other cause, is soaked in an ideology which is taught or programmed into a person’s psyche.  That ideology doesn’t simply spawn in the mind of the perpetrator.  It comes from someone else, whether through print or other media; from a teacher, guide or mentor.  But the term “self radicalize” is specifically designed to deflect attention from that aforementioned ‘elephant’ sitting in the middle of the room.

Islam is that ideology and it can be taught by other people or the documents themselves, the Koran, Hadith, and countless commentaries and books of Islamic scholars (such asSeyyid Qutb) may be read and studied by the individual, even to the point of the student acting upon those teachings.  Tamerlan Tsarnaev did not “self-radicalize” anymore than Nidal Hasan or Osama bin Ladin.  He was taught.  He was taught the purest form of Islam, the Fundamentals of Islam. He believed it, he consumed it, and finally it consumed him.  His actions were based on his faith in his Scriptures (Koran), his prophet (Muhammad), and his god (Allah).

“We Love Death more than You Love Life”

The first victim of Islam is the Muslim.  Islam is, as I have pointed out before, a Great Black Beast.  It will consume everyone in its path if left unchecked, until finally there is no competing religion or ideology permitted.  There is a creed that surfaces occasionally when studying the Islamic culture which is so shaped by the obligatory act of jihad: “We love death more than you love life.” It has been a part of Islam since its earliest doctrines were formulated during that period immediately following Muhammad’s death in 632 (AD). This is that age of Islamic conquest the four “Rightly Guided Caliphs”, It is used by Hamas in their propaganda media.  It was recently used in a letter to the British government by six terrorists who pleaded guilty of planning an attack on the EDL last year.   It was repeated by the Madrid terrorists and actually earned a slide in a power point presentation by Nidal Hassan prior to his jihad attack which resulted in 13 dead and 32 wounded at Fort Hood, Texas. Islam is the largest death cult in the world. Those countries and regions where Islam rules unchecked are anything but bastions of freedom.

CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) came up with a new word in order to try to embarrass and defeat anyone who opposes Islam.  They have been quite successful in defining the Islamic narrative in the United States.  That word is “Islamophobia”. The goal is to paint opposition to Islam as bigoted, racist, and xenophobic.  It doesn’t stick.  Sorry CAIR, I am not afraid of Islam, I am not a racist, nor am I a bigot.   But I will tell you what true “Islamophobia” is.  Just as the word says, “Fear of Islam”.  But CAIR has misplaced the word.

Islamophobia is when a free press self-censors for fear of offending Muslims and consequential retribution from Islam.

Islamophobic is a government which refuses to name the enemy in a war which has been declared on the United States of America by the collective ideology called Islam, for fear of political influence of CAIR, ISNA, ICNA among Islamic organizations, and fear the Saudi’s will pull out of Wall Street and crash our economy.

Islamophobic is a White House which is more interested in “winning the hearts and minds” of a sworn enemy than defeating him, while Islamic groups like CAIR and the OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) filter every training manual and terrorism report issued by the Pentagon.

Islamophobia is when a military acquiesces to the demands of that same sworn enemy to deny Christian or Jewish religious ministry to its own soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen on sovereign soil of our military bases in Afghanistan, but allows an Imam to pray over our dead SEAL’s at Baghram AFB, damning their souls in the name of Allah.

Islamophobic is a President who is more interested in punishing the producer of a two-bit video “slandering the prophet” than he is about punishing those who murdered 4Americans in Benghazi, Libya in a jihad attack, for fear that he will lose the upcoming election if he offends Muslims.

Islamophobia is an Attorney General who vows to prosecute those who say anything critical of Islam.  THAT, my friends is “Islamophobia”.

In the words of Billy Vaughn, father of Aaron Vaughn, one of 26 Navy Seals killed in the “Extorsion 17” helo crash in Wardok Province in 2012, “When you hide the truth, you become part of the lie.”

Americans must face the truth.  We have allowed our government and our media to hide the truth. We have hidden our own faces from the truth.  The ideology that is Islam is fundamentally, and diametrically opposed to America and all that she stands for.





Common Core and Civilization Jihad (Video)

6 09 2015

Alice Linahan is releasing a new book which adeptly peels the layers off Common Core and reveals the outcome of P-20w educational philosophy which is designed to “fundamentally transform” the next generations of Americans into followers of globalism, and submission to the global Caliphate.  Take a look at this short video and pass it on.





The Oklahoma Beheading: The Narrative is in the Works

27 09 2014

According to a CNN story, Alton Nolan, 30, was fired from his job at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma, and went on a bloodletting rampage, beheading a 54 year old woman and stabbing another 43 year old woman. Not included even once is the Islamic name that Nolan had chosen after his conversion, “Jah’Keem Yisrael”.

The CNN version says that Nolan had recently been incarcerated (2013) for possession, escaping, and resisting an officer. It also says he had been trying convert co-workers to Islam. But, the CNN narrative is very careful to say that “beheading raises questions but officials say no terror link”, and that “it is not known if Nolen’s religion had anything to do with” the beheading. CNN also reported that “all U.S. law enforcement officials said was that there are no indications linking the Moore attack to terrorism.”

A quick look at Jah’Keem’s Facebook page reveals his interest in Jihad and Islamist activities abroad, and his devotion to Allah and the peaceful prophet, Muhammad.

Facebook-Jah'Keem Yisrael

Facebook, Album, Jah'Keem Yisrael

But the Independent Journal Review went a bit deeper still and posted “33 Things We Learned…” about Yah’Keem Yisrael, including more Facebook posts of heroes such as Osama Bin Laden, ISIL Terrorists whom he refers to as “my Muslim brothers”, himself studying Quran at mosque and posts glorifying the 911 attacks on America.

You can draw your own conclusions, but my money is that the official line will be “workplace violence”. The Feds, under pressure from CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) will not draw any connections to anyone else who believes, practices, teaches, or proselytizes for the ideology known as Islam. If they cannot find a direct link to some cell group, there will be no further examination made of those who recruited him while in prison or taught him at the mosque. This failure to follow the obvious link to an ideology which has been the common link around the world for violence and unrest, genocide, and terror attacks upon peoples of all races around the world, is akin to Holocaust denial. The obvious is omitted despite the evidence.

As IJReview puts it, “A preferred narrative surrounding the gruesome killing has been that he was just a disgruntled worker doing what disgruntled workers do. Nothing to see here – move along.”

Watch for more of these “Lone Wolf” events. This is only the beginning.

Sedgwick County Sheriff Caves to HAMAS

25 05 2014

Sheriff Jeff Easter was a great help to our Kansas team in passing “Counter-Terrorism” legislation this year. This news is greatly disappointing. See the post from Understanding The Threat blog below. H/T John Guandolo

Sedgwick County Sheriff Surrenders to Hamas

Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter today cancelled next week’s planned UTT 2-day training program, caving in to complaints by Hamas and local Muslim Brotherhood leaders in Wichita and other parts of Kansas. For more details, watch the local ABC Report.

The loudest complaints came from Hamas spokesman Ibrahim Hooper. Hooper works for the Hamas organization called the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). For those confused about CAIR being Hamas…

In a December 2007 government filing in the US v Sabri Benkhala appeal – an Al Qaeda operative – the government stated: “From its founding by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.” A massive amount of evidence entered into the largest Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v Holy Land Foundation (“HLF”), Dallas, 2008) identified CAIR as the fourth organization created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee in America. The Palestine Committee is Hamas. Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. government.

When CAIR petitioned the Federal Court to remove it’s name from the Unindicted Co-Conspirator list in the HLF case, the trial Judge Jorge Solis wrote in his 2010 unsealed opinion, “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with the HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.” CAIR was left on the Co-Conspirator list. CAIR appealed the ruling and the appellate court ruled unanimously to keep CAIR listed as an “Unindicted Co-Conspirator” in the largest Hamas trial in U.S. history because of the overwhelming evidence.

Other Muslims in the community who complained to the Sedgwick Sheriff’s office were leaders and spokesmen from the local Muslim Students Associations (the first Muslim Brotherhood organization established in America in 1963) and the Islamic Society of Wichita – a Muslim Brotherhood organization and a subsidiary of the Islamic Society of North America which is the largest MB organization here and a financial support entity for Hamas per the evidence at the HLF trial.

These are the groups and individuals who have led the charge to shut this training down in Wichita…enemies of the United States.
Because of the nature of the threat from the Islamic Movement in the United States (an insurgency), the burden falls to local police to be the tip of the spear in countering their efforts here. When local police leaders are not aware of this and do not understand their critical role in the larger war, the war will be lost.

In the press release today the Sedgwick Sheriff’s Office stated: “The Sheriff’s Office will find an instructor, either from the Department of Justice or another subject matter expert to present such material in the future.” Unfortunately for Wichita law enforcement, this material is not being presented by any other organization in the nation besides UTT. A few years ago during a 3-day program at Headquarters Marine Corps for approximately 115 professionals from FBI (to include the National Joint Terrorism Task Force personnel), CIA, DHS, DIA, NSA, local and state police, military, and others, a Counterterrorism Supervisor from FBI Headquarters stood up in front of the entire crowd and stated he never heard any of the material presented but confirmed it was true and factual based on the evidence and materials presented. When asked, none of the other attendees were aware of this information either, including the men and women from the FBI’s National Joint Terrorism Task Force in attendance.

So, by canceling this training in Kansas, the Sedgwick County Sheriff has not only emboldened our enemy – namely the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas – he has ensured that local law enforcement will NOT get the very training they need to protect and defend their communities.

Would Be Wichita “Bomber” a Self-Proclaimed Islamic Terrorist

13 12 2013

ON Friday Dec 13 FBI Agents arrested 58 year old Terry Loewen, Avionics Technician, (and Muslim convert), for attempting to bomb the Wichita, KS Mid-Continent Airport.  FBI had been investigating Loewen for months, during which time he repeatedly expressed his desire to “please Allah” and to “be active in some kind of… jihad to feel I’m doing something proactive for the Ummah…”

KWCH Eyewitness 12 News released this older photo of Loewen

The FBI agents, who posed as Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula operatives in the sting, communicated for months with Loewen to clarify his intent.  When Loewen was ready and fully committed to a “martyrdom operation” (suicide bombing) in which he and one of the “brothers” (FBI posing as Al Qaeda) were to die in a truck laden with C4 on the tarmac of the Wichita airport early Friday morning when maximum number of “target” aircraft were present with passengers.

Loewen’s “self-radicalization” is not an isolated incident, and is only a portion of what US Government officials, and media alike, refer to as “Home-grown Terrorists”.  The term “home-grown” is somewhat misleading, and deflects attention away from the fundamentalist Islamic Jihad that is underway in many forms throughout the US and Europe.  In fact, initial reports played down or ignored Loewen’s Islamic ideology, one stating that he had no ties to any Wichita religious group.

Terry Loewen is a true fundamentalist as described in his own words,

As time goes on I care less and less about what other people think of me,
or my views of lslam. I have been studying subjects like jihad, martyrdom
operations, and Sharia law.2 I don’t understand how you can read the
Qur’an and the sunnah3 of the Prophet (saw)a and not understand that
jihad and the implementation of Sharia is absolutely demanded of all the
Muslim Ummah

This statement could not be more true, as I have written previously in “The Myth of Self Radicalization” and here in “Fundamentals“.  Loewen went on in later communication to express his satisfaction with his decision to become a “shaheed” (martyr) for the cause of Allah:

“All is good with me. lnshallah, this operation will be huge. Just to be a
part of any operation with these brothers is a great honor for me, but of
(sic) it can instill and great financial loss to the tagoot who run this
country, then I will truly feel blessed. I pray the peace of Allah(swt) will
be upon you and the other brothers. May this mission, inshalla h, be
fruitful for all of us.”

In a letter dated 12/11/13 to a family member, Loewen left these final remarks:

“By the time you read this I will – if everything went as planned- have
been martyred in the path of Allah. Therewill have been an event atthe
airport which I am responsible for. The operation was timed to cause
maximum carnage + death. [. . .] My only explanation is that I believe in
jihad for the sake of Allah + for the sake of my Muslim brothers + sisters.
[. . .] Fact is, most Muslims in this country will condemn what I have done.
[. . .] I expect to be called a terrorist (which I am), a psychopath, and a
homicidal maniac.”

Courtroom sketch of Terry Loewen arraigned Friday, Dec 13. Published by KAKE.com Wichita

Terry Loewen was arrested after his disabled ID badge failed to open the gate allowing the “explosive” laden truck access to the tarmac area.

I will be waiting to hear the voices of those Muslims in this country who condemn his action, but more specifically those who disavow Jihad as a fundamental and integral part of Islamic doctrine, and Islamic Sharia Law.

In spite of all the scandals in government in the last few years,  I tip my hat to the FBI agents who got to this guy before the real AQAP Brothers did.

In The Face of Terror: A Message for America

10 09 2013

In The Face of Terror: Ugandan Pastor Speaks to America

Umar Mulinde, once a Muslim, not only left Islam to embrace Jesus Christ, but became a Pastor.  The very act of “apostasy” from Islam is enough to earn the death penalty in many places ruled by the Shari’a (Islamic Holy Law), but proselytizing Muslims and becoming a Pastor adds insult to injury.  An additional curse from Islam upon Pastor Mulinde is that he supports Israel.

Umar was taught by Islam to hate Israel as a Muslim child, even before he knew where to find it on the map.  Today while American children watch Sesame Street, Palestinian children watch programming teaching them to declare jihad on the Jews, reciting messages of hate in poetry.  Umar’s message to Israel, “Don’t sell your land for Peace!” His message to America, “Stand up before it’s [too] late!”

In February of 2012 a team from The United West was in Israel and interviewed Pastor Umar Mulinde at the Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv.  This video is a portion of that interview.  H/T  Tom and Mark





Wichita Elementary School Greets Students with the 5 Pillars of Islam

19 08 2013

When the Wichita Kansas mother and her husband enrolled their son in the neighborhood charter school, religious instruction was the last thing under their consideration.  In fact, had they known the Minneha Elementary School ( a public magnet school) used a curriculum that incorporated the open and direct use of Eastern religious writings, and Islamic core tenets, they may well have chosen a different school altogether.

It wasn’t until the boy came home from school in with worksheets in his backpack that the parents were aware that in 1st grade he had been instructed that there were three major world religions: Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam. In 2nd grade, the class was introduced to Eastern religions in a two week segment of the social studies class which, during the week of Hindu, the teacher read daily passages from a Hindu prayer book and followed with a week of reading Buddhist meditations.

Remember, we are talking 2nd Grade here, not a high-school Literature or Cultural Studies class!

This year the child began 3rd grade.  (He and his family are Jewish and he understands that Islamic groups worldwide have declared Jews, among others, as targets of scorn and violence.)  The religious display greeted him and his mother like a slap in the face as “The 5 Pillars of Islam” bulletin board welcomed the elementary students into the new school year, and apparently, the next level of social and cultural engineering (which has plagued public education for a while now), Islamic instruction.

Minneha Elementary School, Wichita, KS, 2013

Minneha Elementary School, Wichita, KS, 2013

It’s happening all over the United States.  School textbooks, particularly those published by Pearson Education, Inc. under the name Pearson Prentice Hall, are rife with Islamic friendly references.  One such History textbook, used by a Florida school district for three years now, contains a 36 page chapter dedicated to Islam, while no chapters at all were dedicated to Judaism, or Christianity, both of which are arguably the bedrock of Western civilization.  According to the Florida Rep. Rich Workman, the “Muslim Civilizations” chapter was confirmed to him by the publisher, to be written by an Islamic Cleric. One reference to the Muslim takeover of Medina says the people there received Muhammad with gladness and “happily accepted Islam as their way of life”.  No mention of the thousands of Jews and non-believers that were dispossessed, exiled and slaughtered in the process.

Another book by Prentice Hall, Medieval Times to Today in their “World Explorer” series, explains that “some” Christian pilgrims “were attacked and murdered” (prior to the 1st Crusade of 1095) by the Muslim Turks at Jerusalem, “even though Islamic teaching states that Jews and Christians are fellow believers in God.” (p. 118)

That statement is a half -truth, and therefore a lie.  While some earlier passages in Koran do make friendly to Jews, they are never considered “fellow believers” (which insinuates equality), and those passages are abrogated by the latter, and even final word in Sura’s 5 and 9 on the matter which state that Christians are “Unbelievers” and polytheists, because they believe in the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), (Sura 5:73) and that Muslims are to have no part of polytheism or those who practice it, furthermore are to fight against them, and the only Christians or Jews who were allowed to exist were those who submitted (definition of Islam) to Muslim rule and agreed to acquiesce to Islamic Law (Sharia), which posited them as much less than equal “fellow believers”.  Similarly, Sura 5:56-57 warns Muslims not to seek the friendship of “People of the Book” (Jews), also called “infidels” here, who rejected Muhammad’s religion, saying that Allah “has cursed” them.  These are the conditions by which Christians and Jews are permitted to retain their “religion”, living as “dhimmi” under Islamic governance.

The Minneha School policy states, “Since religion is a shaping force in the story of civilization, the Core Knowledge sequence introduces children in the early grades to major world religions, beginning with a focus on geography and major symbols and figures.”  Core Knowledge sequence uses several publishing houses, but as a note of interest, K-6 history and geography materials are published by Pearson.  (At this time, we have not been able to confirm any content of these specific textbooks, at the Wichita school.)

The major objections with this situation are threefold.

First, the display of “The 5 Pillars of Islam” is presenting a theological foray into the basic tenets of a religion.  The schools policy further states, The purpose is not to explore the matters of theology but to understand the place of religion and religious ideas in history.”

 For the record the 5 Pillars of Islam are as follows:

  1. Shahada – This is the verbal confession made when one becomes a Muslim and commits to obey the laws of Islam.  “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah
  2. Salat – The 5 daily prayers, each with a name and time for performance following ceremonial washing.
  3. Ramadan – The Fast during the month of Ramadan celebrating the initial verses of Koran given to Muhammad, and a time of introspection, and celebratory meals.
  4. Zakat – Alms giving.
  5. Hajj – The pilgrimage required by every Muslim if able, at least once in their lifetime. Many ceremonial religious exercises performed in Mecca.

[Some schools of Islam add a 6th Pillar which is Jihad – Holy War to advance Islam. Whether included as a fundamental pillar of the faith or not, Jihad is none-the-less an obligatory element to Islamic doctrine.]

Keep in mind this is not a display about the height of Islamic culture during the Fatimid Dynasty, or the great libraries kept at Cordoba by the most liberal Caliph in Islamic history, Al Hakam II.

One cannot expect a display touting “The 5 Pillars of Islam” to go unexplained to the students who view it.  Any instruction to follow, delving into these are getting into theology, and therefore a violation of the schools own policy.  Be that as it may, the only justifiable “balance” that could be attained is for the school to introduce lessons on Baptism and the Sacraments, as these are held by many mainstream Christian denominations to be the “way of salvation” just as the recitation of the Shahada, a purely theological exercise. [**Addendum Update**: Perhaps even more to this point, discussion of the “Apostle’s Creed”.]

Secondly, as already touched on briefly, these are elementary aged students, not junior high or even high schoolers, who are more equipped to have an objective approach to such sensitive subject matter.

Thirdly, this is a public school, not a private school. It does receive public funding.  Most of us are of the understanding that some courts and most public schools have decided that any intrusion of any type of religious activity or instruction is a violation of the establishment clause in the Constitution.  Indeed…

As a point of balance, we are informed, there is a picture of “The Last Supper” on an adjacent wall to this display.

Whether the “Last Supper” or Michelangelo’s statue of David, a classic piece of artwork, unless used in a larger theological discussion, is not necessarily of a religious inference, and even if a student did inquire about the individuals in the picture, a satisfactory explanation can be historical and even cultural in nature without even broaching a theological point.

Does the school intend to post the 10 Commandments, depict Baptism and the Eucharist, and compare the 3 core values of Judaism:  Torah (Learning), Avodah (service), and Gilmut Chasidim, (human interaction)? If the school gives equal time to these then there is equity.  Anything less is prejudice.

The 5 Pillars are theological religious instruction and must come down.

***UPDATED***

The School has taken the display down “until the unit is taught later this fall”.





The Myth of “Self Radicalization” and the Fallacy of “Radical Islam” – Part 2 of “Jihad? No Jihad Here…”

10 05 2013

Media Trilobites continue to bump into and feed each other nonsensical buzz words that become trendy for a few weeks and are eventually absorbed into the pop culture lexicon.  These phrases or terms may lie dormant for ages until suddenly they’re on every television commentator’s lips.  If we can’t find a word in the English language to spin up to instant glory, we’ll borrow one from another language.  Al Gore did just that when he described himself as having “gravitas” during his run for the White House. Nearly instantaneously, every talking head in the country was using the heavy Latin word, until finally Chris Mathews commented that Barack Obama’s gravitas caused a tingle to run up his leg.  It kinda lost its punch after that.

But the real point here is the incessant blathering about “self radicalized” terrorists, specifically the brothers Tsarnaev, better known as the Boston Bombers, who are responsible for nearly 270 maimed, wounded, or dead.

Disregarding the obvious elephant in the room, both the government and the media, began hunting for fleas and swatting at gnats.  “Whatever could be the reason for this horrendous tragedy?”  The story line continued for hours into days that this had to be the work of some “right wing extremists”, and even the President floated a hint or two about April 15th being “tax day”, of course insinuating it was a right-wing tax protest, obviously connected to the Tea Party, just like so many other terrorist related events have been linked to them.  Like the first bombing of the World Trade Center back in ’93; no wait, that was Islamic jihad.  Oh, like the 911 attacks when Tea Party members flew passenger airliners into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and were headed for the White House; oh…sorry, those were Islamic jihadist hijackers. Well, like the DC Snipers who terrorized the city for 3 weeks in 2002; no wait, they were Islamic also.  Well then there was the White Supremacist, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who killed one soldier and wounded another in front of the recruiting office in Arkansas in 2009; sorry, again Islamic jihad.

Well…there are so many events that are known to have connections to “conservative right wing Christian radicals” such as: The Fort Hood Massacre when that Christian shooter yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he gunned down 40 people, killing 13.  The 2009 Riverdale New York bomb plot planned by 4 radical Tea Party grandma’s, the Times Square Bomber who had his SUV full of propane tanks and fireworks (surely some redneck like Larry the Cable Guy), the “Fort Dix Six”, the “Underwear Bomber”, the “Shoe Bomber”, etcetera ad nauseam.

My, my, what could it be? What ever could it be that is initiating all these attacks and plots?

[According to this Congressional report, there have been well over 60 successful, attempted, or plotted Islamic Jihad Terrorist attacks on US soil since 9-11-2001.]

Of course, most of these were played off as “Lone Wolf” scenarios where the terrorist was “self-radicalized”.

Listening to all the ‘crack investigative reporters and hard-hitting journalists’, one could come to the conclusion that these guys just must wake up one morning and “self-radicalize” deciding today is a good day to kill some people’.

This term is a copout for lazy journalists and downright deceiving when used by anyone.  A person cannot “self-radicalize” any more than “self-socialize”.  There must be a cause, a mentor, or an ideology that brings a person to the point that he is willing to, no, compelled to kill random people that he doesn’t even know.

That mentor, in many cases, is a spiritual leader.  That cause, or ideology, which is that rather enormous and obnoxious “elephant in the room” that none of the trilobites are willing to discuss?  Islam.

Forget Islam as a Religion

The sooner Americans refuse to continue accepting Islam as a viable and peaceful “religion” and begin to view it as the sociopolitical ideology that it truly is, the greater the possibility the America will survive its onslaught.

The root problem for America is not that Islam has come to colonize her, which it has, but the fact that we have allowed “multi-culturalism” (immigration without assimilation) and “pluralism” (all cultures, ideologies, realities are equal) to progress unchecked resulting in a “balkanized” or “tribal” society wherein competing ideologies are viewed as co-equal.  Not all ideologies are conducive to civilized society, nor are they consistent with the basic premise of freedom, as established in America’s founding documents.

If I were to try to convince you that Germany’s National Socialism (Nazism) is a peaceful ideology that was hijacked by a few “self radicalized” individuals, resulting in the holocaust, you’d laugh in my face.  Well, that’s a pretty good comparison: You have a ‘prophet’ by the name of Hitler who sought to consolidate power under a banner of a unified ideology by clearing the field of competing ideologies, and went to war in order to stoke the economy and gain control of more land area.  Had Muhammad access to German weapons of mass destruction he would certainly not have hesitated to use them.   Hitler’s Holocaust resulted in an estimated 11 Million deaths, many of which were communist (because Karl Marx was Jewish), mentally or physically handicapped, Jehovah’s Witness, homosexual, or Christian leaders such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer who refused to place their names upon the “Aryan Clause” and become “Reich Churches” to do the bidding of the “almighty Fuhrer”.   But his “Final Solution” for 6 million Jews had already been proven and prescribed by Islam’s prophet Muhammad in the Arabian Peninsula 1400 years prior in places with such names as Banu Quaraysa and Khaybar, where Muhammad slaughtered unarmed male prisoners and enslaved the girls, and women, finally appropriating all Jewish property to Muslims.

Both economies required perpetual war.  (The fundamental Islamic world view is “Dar al-Islam” or Dar al-Harb: The world is divided and you either dwell in the “House of Islam”, where Islam rules, or you dwell in the “House of War” and are subject to Jihad.)

Both ideologies have religious overtones (Hitler was worshipped and given a godlike status).  Both ‘prophets’ were consumed with power.  Both cultures fostered distrust and suspicion (Gestapo was everywhere and anyone who challenged the Prophet was dealt with harshly.)  Both Nazism and Islam are fundamentally racist.   Neither can compete philosophically with opposing values, absent of an oppressive legal system or war.

Consider the following argument:

“Well, you know those “Brown Shirts” are really not as bad as the SS or Gestapo.  Now those SS are some evil dudes.  SS are the real “radical” Nazi’s.  The Brownshirts might beat you up but those SS will kill you!  We really need to reach out to those individuals and find out why they hate us so much.  But most of the Nazi’s are moderate.  They aren’t violent at all.  Sure, they go to the rallies where Hitler is speaking, but they’re just normal folks like you and me!  They want the same for their families as we all want.  Yeah, Nazism is actually a very patriotic and peaceful ideology, it’s just been hijacked by some radicals who seek to politicize it, and destroy property and kill people and take their property in the name of this peaceful movement.” 

Well, as you can see this defense of Nazism just doesn’t fly!  Ironically, this is the exact apologetic defense that Islam gets from not only the American mainstream media, but from our government as well!

“Self Radicalization”

This term makes about as much sense as “Obamacare”.  An individual who is willing to commit a violent act of mass murder and mayhem in the name of his god, or any other cause, is soaked in an ideology which is taught or programmed into a person’s psyche.  That ideology doesn’t simply spawn in the mind of the perpetrator.  It comes from someone else, whether through print or other media; from a teacher, guide or mentor.  But the term “self radicalize” is specifically designed to deflect attention from that aforementioned ‘elephant’ sitting in the middle of the room.

Islam is that ideology and it can be taught by other people or the documents themselves, the Koran, Hadith, and countless commentaries and books of Islamic scholars (such as Seyyid Qutb) may be read and studied by the individual, even to the point of the student acting upon those teachings.  Tamerlan Tsarnaev did not “self-radicalize” anymore than Nidal Hasan or Osama bin Ladin.  He was taught.  He was taught the purest form of Islam, the Fundamentals of Islam. He believed it, he consumed it, and finally it consumed him.  His actions were based on his faith in his Scriptures (Koran), his prophet (Muhammad), and his god (Allah).

“We Love Death more than You Love Life”

The first victim of Islam is the Muslim.  Islam is, as I have pointed out before, a Great Black Beast.  It will consume everyone in its path if left unchecked, until finally there is no competing religion or ideology permitted.  There is a creed that surfaces occasionally when studying the Islamic culture which is so shaped by the obligatory act of jihad: “We love death more than you love life.” It has been a part of Islam since its earliest doctrines were formulated during that period immediately following Muhammad’s death in 632 (AD). This is that age of Islamic conquest the four “Rightly Guided Caliphs”, It is used by Hamas in their propaganda media.  It was recently used in a letter to the British government by six terrorists who pleaded guilty of planning an attack on the EDL last year.   It was repeated by the Madrid terrorists and actually earned a slide in a power point presentation by Nidal Hassan prior to his jihad attack which resulted in 13 dead and 32 wounded at Fort Hood, Texas. Islam is the largest death cult in the world. Those countries and regions where Islam rules unchecked are anything but bastions of freedom.

CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) came up with a new word in order to try to embarrass and defeat anyone who opposes Islam.  They have been quite successful in defining the Islamic narrative in the United States.  That word is “Islamophobia”. The goal is to paint opposition to Islam as bigoted, racist, and xenophobic.  It doesn’t stick.  Sorry CAIR, I am not afraid of Islam, I am not a racist, nor am I a bigot.   But I will tell you what true “Islamophobia” is.  Just as the word says, “Fear of Islam”.  But CAIR has misplaced the word.

Islamophobia is when a free press self-censors for fear of offending Muslims and consequential retribution from Islam.

Islamophobic is a government which refuses to name the enemy in a war which has been declared on the United States of America by the collective ideology called Islam, for fear of political influence of CAIR, ISNA, ICNA among Islamic organizations, and fear the Saudi’s will pull out of Wall Street and crash our economy.

Islamophobic is a White House which is more interested in “winning the hearts and minds” of a sworn enemy than defeating him, while Islamic groups like CAIR and the OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) filter every training manual and terrorism report issued by the Pentagon.

Islamophobia is when a military acquiesces to the demands of that same sworn enemy to deny Christian or Jewish religious ministry to its own soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen on sovereign soil of our military bases in Afghanistan, but allows an Imam to pray over our dead SEAL’s at Baghram AFB, damning their souls in the name of Allah.

Islamophobic is a President who is more interested in punishing the producer of a two-bit video “slandering the prophet” than he is about punishing those who murdered 4 Americans in Benghazi, Libya in a jihad attack, for fear that he will lose the upcoming election if he offends Muslims.  THAT, my friends is “Islamophobia”.

In the words of Billy Vaughn, father of Aaron Vaughn, one of 26 Navy Seals killed in the “Extorsion 17” helo crash in Wardok Province in 2012, “When you hide the truth, you become part of the lie.”

Americans must face the truth.  We have allowed our government and our media to hide the truth. We have hidden our own faces from the truth.  The ideology that is Islam is fundamentally, and diametrically opposed to America and all that she stands for.





Virginia Imam: “Arms for Jihad”

23 02 2013

“They are already calling us terrorist, anyway…make the title worth it!”

So says Imam Sheikh Shakir of the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque of Falls Church, Virginia.  This speech was given January 26,2013 at a high school in Alexandria, Va. where the Imam was invited to address the 1st anniversary of the Ethio-Muslims movement in America.  This post and video is not so much about the Ethopian movement, but to show this Imam to the public, in his own words, advocating the Quran based teachings of Islam: That you are to have allegiance to, or obey none but Allah, to fight jihad, as a united force using the the “3 powers of Faith, Unity, and Armaments.”

Watch the host scramble to the microphone to disclaim the Imam’s advocacy for armed jihad.  I do not necessarily condemn the Ethiopian immigrants here and extend good wishes for the seventeen non-violent protesting Muslims who are being held and abused by the Ethiopian government.  But this Imam knows Islam. He knows Quran and he knows Sharia.  What he is advocating is not “extremism” but the same practice of Islam that Seyyid Qutb advocated.

H/T to my fellow counter-jihadi, “Causing Fitna”, whose blog link is on my blogroll.  He has provided the link to the full length speech on his truncated version which I have posted here.  I have seen the entire speech and CF has not taken the Imam’s words out of context in the 7 minute video.

Did I mention that Sheikh Shakir is the Imam at Dar al-Hijrah Mosque?  That’s the same mosque that was led by Imam Anwar al-Alawki, and was attended by some of the 9-11 hijackers…and Major Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood jihadi…in Falls Church…Virginia…yeah that’s the one.   Please watch the video.





“The Future Must Not Belong to Those Who Would Slander the Prophet of Islam”

1 10 2012

“The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam.”

A friend had called and told me of this quote by the President of the United States and I must admit, I did not believe it.  This friend calls me often to discuss world events and usually has his facts right.  He is the only person I know who can read a newspaper, listen to the television, and carry on a coherent conversation all at the same time, and tell you detailed information from all three sources.  I am jealous!

I asked him to see if he could confirm that with another source while I began to research myself.  A news break confirmed it, and I still couldn’t believe it!  I began to text a few close and trusted friends who hadn’t yet heard it.  Then a while later they began texting back that “…Obama also spoke against violence against Christians.”  So I watched the entire speech at the UN myself. Then again.  And finally a third and fourth time, rewinding and replaying several key points.  So here is my analysis of Barack Obama’s speech before the UN General Assembly on Sept. 25, 2012.

The underlying theme of the entire speech was “Tolerance”.  This should not surprise anyone, anywhere, as it is the prevailing theme of Leftist/Progressive/Socialist ideology around the world, particularly in the West.  The only problem with those who preach tolerance, is they aren’t.  Most of the time when someone demands your tolerance of something be it speech, morality, or behavior, is not asking for your mere “tolerance” of them, but demand your codification of whatever it is. But I digress!

While the “overt” theme was tolerance and “mutual respect”, the main subject matter related directly to the stupid little Youtube video which made fun of Muhammad and Islam.  It looked like something high school kids might come up with. Very poorly done and amateurish.  I question not only the source of production, but also the fact that United States Government officials are bending over backwards to disavow the stupid thing.  As Shakespeare would say, “Methinks he doth protest too much”.

The President did the right thing by formally paying tribute to Ambassador Chris Stevens killed by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.  Next he posed a valiant effort in standing up for freedom of speech, especially as we know and understand it in America, while recognizing that “not all countries” share our belief in free speech.

Mr. Obama then addressed the violent reactions to the video, blaming the actions of a few backward extremists for the attacks and calling them to leave the cause of violence  and politics of destruction behind and join with us to create a better future….Kumbayah!  Oh, I have no problem with what he said, and he said it well, but either his naivety or his chronic narcissism has clouded his view of the real world.  Especially, the Islamic world.  You see, these “extremist impulses” which “divide the world into us and them”, are part and parcel of the Sharia which all Muslims are obligated to establish so that there is no more “us and them”; that is Dar al-Harb (“House of War”-anywhere that is not under Islamic control) has been absorbed by Dar al-Islam  (“House of Submission”) and “Allah’s religion shall reign supreme!” (Quran 8:36)

No Mr. President, this violent Islamic extremist activity has been going on now for over 14 centuries, and will not ever cease until the 2nd Coming of Christ!  It is not the result of the infidel Americans casting aspersions upon the “prophet”, nor the result of American or even Western intervention in Islamic lands or Colonialism of 3 centuries gone by.  It has been going on since the “Prophet” was exiled from Mecca in 623 AD!

Back to the speech.  Nearly 20 minutes into the speech, Mr. Obama began a series of comments about “the future”.   Now, lest I be accused of taking the lead quotation out of context, I will include the whole of these comments here in block quotes and follow each phrase with commentary in [brackets].

The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt, it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted ‘Muslims/Christians, We are One!’.

[I have no problem with this statement and commend the President for drawing attention to the Coptic’s plight at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood.]

The future must not belong to those who bully women, it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons.  [Again, the words of the President are spot on.]

The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources, it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs, the workers and business owners who see a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the women and men that America stand with. Theirs is the vision we will support.  [Not quite sure what Mr. Obama is driving at here but will assume that he is speaking to historic European Colonialism.]

The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam. But, to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated,  or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.  [I want to come back to this!]

Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shia Pilgrims.  [Let’s do that!]

It’s time to heed the words of Gandhi, “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” [Gandhi also said, “A religion which takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them is no religion.”]

In analyzing this portion of the speech, which in my opinion was the most interesting, I consulted with an attorney friend of mine.  As we went through the points about “The future must not belong to _____”, she brought to my attention that each of the crimes pointed out; violence/assault/murder (specifically here against the Copts) against any  people, beating/bullying women, stealing, these are all crimes recognized quite objectively by any legal system.

Slander on the other hand, i.e. “The future must not belong to those who would slander the Prophet of Islam.”, is quite subjective and as Muhammad has been dead for, well a long time, a dead man cannot be slandered or defamed.  Especially under American jurisdiction, where an opinion is freely expressed about anything or anyone.  Free Speech according to our First Amendment of the Constitution.  Legally, a plaintiff charging slander must prove in court that he/she has been defamed by the defendant at a personal cost, be it economic or social.  Muhammad cannot do that and since no one is alive who actually knew him to speak on his behalf, the charge is not provable.  If I call Muhammad a pedophile I am not slandering, because he actually had sexual intercourse with a 9 year old girl, molesting her much earlier at the age of 6.  If I call him a robber and a thief, I am not slandering because his raids of caravans are documented.  If I call him demon possessed, I am not slandering because Muhammad himself thought he was demon possessed and contemplated suicide.  If I call him an idiot, that is my opinion, and as such that is all it is worth.  Sharia cannot stand either historical fact or the opinion of a dissident!

Only under Islamic Law, ala the Sharia, can someone be charged with slander by criticizing Muhammad, or Islam, or even Muslims.  In America you can criticize any religious figure, book, government official, teacher, neighbor, or family member without fear of retribution.  It is an essential and inherent right, and the Founders understood freedom of speech to be so, in order to arrive at the truth of any matter and specifically to maintain personal liberty without fear of an oppressive governmental authority.  In Islam, Sharia is the government.

The other thing about this sentence in Mr. Obama’s speech is this.  This is a stand alone statement.  Anything that he adds afterward is merely window dressing, but taken at face value, all he is saying here is “if you condemn the slander of Muhammad you must also condemn hate.”  Hate, which presumably results in actions of desecration of icons, destruction of churches, or denying the Holocaust.  So are we to simply condemn the hate and not the action, or should we include hate as a crime, or what about prosecuting those who actually committed the crimes of destruction of property or causing personal injury?

Sometimes I wonder what planet these ideologues come from where they deny basic human instinct and behavior!  They never consider that aspect of human nature which, as fallen from the original state of Creation, is selfish, driven by his own lusts, and violent.  In the Psalms, King David writes the rhetorical question, “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?”  The answer of course is “Because they are heathen and people are vain!”   But David says it better, “The kings of the Earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, ‘Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.'”  Rebellion against God always results in destruction, whether personal, or national, or cultural.  Islam has chosen another god from the God of the Bible and the result is darkness, blood and pain, not only for those who are in it, but now it has come to all the world.

Barack Obama’s eloquent speech was just so much white noise in the chambers of the UN General Assembly.  Immediately following Obama, Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari demanded insults to religion be criminalized.  Over a dozen people were killed there in protests against the film, while they burned President Obama in effigy.  “The international community must not become silent observers and should criminalize such acts that destroy the peace of the world and endanger world security by misusing freedom of expression,” he said.

Mohamed Mursi, the new Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt echoed that sentiment on Wednesday.  “Egypt respects freedom of expression, freedom of expression that is not used to incite hatred against anyone,” he said. “We expect from others, as they expect from us, that they respect our cultural specifics and religious references, and not impose concepts or cultures that are unacceptable to us.”

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said it was time to put an end to the protection of Islamophobia masquerading as the freedom to speak freely.

Outside the United Nations in New York, about 150 protesters demanded “justice” and chanted “there is no god but Allah” outside the U.N. building on Thursday. One placard read: “Blaspheming my Prophet must be made a crime at the U.N.

Islamic leaders in Dearborn, MI, held a protest on Friday, Sept 28, protesting freedom of speech, demanding laws that criminalize hurting the feelings of Muslims.

Yeah, me too…





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.





Sharia in London: Tip of the Iceberg

8 04 2012

For those who continue to deny that Sharia is a threat to Western Society, pay especially close attention to the signs in this video and more importantly the conversation the girl has with the Imam after the 3 minute mark. I may be mistaken, in the first video the quality is poor, but am pretty sure this is Anjem Chaudry, the very same Imam who said that he wants to see the Islamic Banner fly over the White House in D.C., USA. He also said that Islam must rule the world. He is telling the truth. He is compelled to bring Sharia upon all the Earth by his god Allah, and Allah’s Quran. There is no choice for the Muslim. He must do this thing.  Choudry is the featured spokesman in the second video which removes all doubt of the intent of Islam.

The Imam gives chapter and verse the Quranic reference to why Muslims do not have to obey the Law of the Land they reside in, unless that land is ruled by Sharia. Sura 33:1-2 says,

“Have fear of Allah and do not yield to the unbelievers and the hypocrites. Allah is all knowing and wise. Obey what is revealed to you from your lord, for Allah is cognizant of all your actions, and put your trust in Allah; Allah is your all-sufficient guardian.”

Please take 5 minutes and view this video. Then make sure to watch the second one.

Are you getting this, American Lawmakers? Are you understanding that this is the very reason that 20 States currently are either reviewing, or have passed Legislation that will protect against the discriminatory legal system of Islam known as Sharia?

Make no mistake about it; this is NOT ABOUT RELIGION. Islam is a socio-political system with its skeletal structure of Sharia Law.  It is a legal system wearing the cloak of religion.  It cannot abide with, or co-exist with another competing ideology. It must, and it will dominate.  Hear Anjem Choudry in this video, which actually makes the point much better than I can…

 





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.






Who’s Defining the Islamic Narrative in the USA?

26 10 2011

Terrorist affiliates such as CAIR and MPAC, that’s who.  

And you’ll not hear about it on domestic media outlets.  Deputy U. S. Attorney General James Cole announced yesterday that he has ordered all law enforcement and security training manuals recalled in order to eliminate all references to Islam.

Why?  CAIR and MPAC doesn’t like it! 

Sounds harmless enough…until you realize CAIR was listed as an “Un-indicted Co-conspirator” in the largest single terrorism trial in United States history.  CAIR is a known Muslim Brotherhood front group and was named in the “Holy Land Foundation“(headquartered in Richardson, TX) trial in 2008, as funneling American money to HAMAS. Who is CAIR?  Council on American Islamic Relations.

CAIR was the Islamist group which filed a lawsuit against Oklahoma after that state’s residence voted overwhelmingly in favor of a Constitutional Amendment that would block usage of Sharia Law in the state of Oklahoma.

CAIR is at the forefront in the Islamic colonization of America, and has filed numerous lawsuits against a plethora of businesses, governments, and media figures who oppose their agenda and speak out against them.  Pam Geller is one such target. Her blog “Atlas Shrugs” (on my blogroll) has been on the cutting edge of educating America on the dangers of Sharia.  She, along with the attorney for Rifqa Bary, (a Muslim girl in Ohio who converted to Christianity and feared her life was in danger from her family) was sued by a CAIR attorney for $10 million damages for defamation.  

CAIR is also pursuing the U. S. Military for tolerating intolerance of American Muslim soldiers by fellow soldiers, in the shadow of the Ft. Hood shooting by Nidal Hasan in 2009 and the more recent threat at Ft. Hood by the AWOL Nasser Jason Abdo.  

So who is MPAC?  Muslim Political Affairs Council.

This is the group who trains Transportation and Safety Officers (TSO’s) how to give halal pat downs to Muslim travelers.  According to this article by Arutz 7, the MPAC President threatened the FBI with cutting off cooperation between the American Muslim community and Law Enforcement if the manuals were not revised.

The article goes on to say,

“Ties between CAIR and MPAC, both of whom have been guests of honor at numerous Federal events and symposiums, and Obama administration dinners, are well documented. Both organizations are members of the American Muslim Political Coordination Council, which seek to coordinate political advocacy efforts.”

Can it be any more clear where the Islamic narrative in America is coming from?

 

 

 





Social Justice: A Key Philosophy of Islam

5 10 2011

What do Islamists, Socialists, Communists, Progressives and Greens all have in common?  The ideal of “Social Justice”.

This Utopian philosophical mainstay has been around for quite a while and had its modern roots in the “Social Gospel” espoused by the Episcopalian Church in the early 20th century.  Other similar variant philosophies such as “Liberation Theology” have come out of religious ideologies taught by Roman Catholic clergy in Latin America which merged Marxism with theological teachings of Utopian objectives.   The United Methodist Church has fully embraced “Social Justice” as one of its “Methods”, citing “It is a governmental responsibility to provide all citizens with health care.”    (Even the Green Party movement has as one of its “four pillars”, social justice as a basic tenet.)  I don’t recall Jesus Christ ever admonishing the government of Rome to provide social services to its subjects.  He did however, admonish His followers to provide for the poor…of their own initiative, not by compulsory government intervention.

Post Millennialism is an extra-Biblical doctrine in Christendom which says that in order for Jesus to return to Earth, Mankind must cleanse the world of all the social evils that plague the planet.   In other words, when we get it right, He will return.  Human nature is, of course, antithetical to that objective in light of the fact that all humans are sinful creatures; thus the need for redemption from the curse of death, visa vi the Savior.  Post-Millennialism is indeed an ingenious method to distract  “Christian” religious organizations who have “left their first love” and become diverted from proclaiming the Gospel of Christ to a lost and sinful world. It is a theological seed-bed for “Social Gospel” which is strictly a works based religious theology.  To quote Adrian Rogers, it is “religion working to make the world a better place to go to Hell from.”

The Social Gospel was the root of “Progressivism” in early 1900’s US politics, which became more Leftist each time it “reformed”.  Included in that early movement were names like Teddy Roosevelt,  Woodrow Wilson, FDR.

Socialists of the same era included Upton Sinclair, founder of the ACLU and California candidate for governor who wrote,

“The American People will take Socialism, but they won’t take the label. I certainly proved it in the case of EPIC. Running on the Socialist ticket I got 60,000 votes, and running on the slogan to “End Poverty in California” I got 879,000.”

Another noteworthy name in American Progressive/Socialist politics is Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood and advocate of eugenics who was cited by Nazi’s at the Nuremberg Trials as foundational in developing their own programs of genocide and sterilization.  Planned Parenthood annually awards recipients worthy of her memory. Recipients include names such as Jane Fonda, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Ted Turner.

Today, Progressives are a large part of both the Green and Democrat parties, while raw Socialists, Marxists, Anarchists, and Communists pretty much make up the remainder of the two.  Just my opinion…(Heck, progressives are entrenched in the Republican Party as well. We call them “Moderates”.)

Today’s proponents of Social Justice are a mix of religious zealots, atheistic Leftist elites, and a smattering of environmentalist activists (most of these would qualify as religious zealots).  It is an ideology which has infiltrated American institutions from the schoolhouse, to the mainstream churches, to the media.

“Social justice” is one of the core values of Fethullah Gulen’s “Turkish Movement”.  The not so “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood also espouses social justice as a core value.  Stands to reason as this is one of the key principles of Islam.

You see in Islam, just as in Socialism, Progressivism, and Communism, it is the government’s/ruler’s responsibility to redistribute resources from those who have, or produce them, to those who have not.  As Marx put it, “From each according to his ability to each according to his need.”

Yes, “social justice” translates as “income and/or property redistribution”.   Now you know why Muslim’s vote Democrat.

This serves to explain the “unholy” alliance that has been made between the Left and Islamic activists in the West, especially in Canada and the United States.  The shared ideologies of  “solidarity”, “social justice,” and a common desire to smother capitalism and a free and open society, have consolidated the opponents of traditional American values into a deadly and powerful force that has found refuge in the highest offices in the land.

Aside from the long list of administrative appointments that our current President has given in sensitive positions (such as Department of Homeland Security) to at least one self-styled Communist, at least 3 Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, at least one open proponent of Sharia Law, and at least one documented socialist, (Not an exhaustive list, mind you; just a cursory perusal of Administration Staff) a recent poll indicates an overwhelming approval of the Obama Presidency among America’s Islamic community.

Pew Research Center released its latest polling data showing vast differences between the average American citizen and Muslim’s (American) satisfaction with the President.  Whereas in 2007, President Bush’s approval among U. S. Muslims was 15% and 69% disapproved, the 2011 data showed that only 14% disapproved of President Obama while an overwhelming 76% approved.

As Pew said in its own report, “Muslim-Americans clearly see a friend in Obama.”  You can read the Wall Street online article titled, “A Muslim President, After All”.  This is quite revealing in light of the Gallup approval rating for Obama at 42%, the lowest among Americans since he took office, with a disapproval rating of 50%.  His approval rating among American blacks (I refuse to hyphenate Americans) has dropped in the last 5 months from 83% to 58%, 18 points lower than that of America’s Islamic community.

So how is that religions and political ideologies that are so antithetically opposed to one another, such as Islam and atheistic Communism (or Progressivism) can cooperate so fully in their  political endeavors?   These forces have been at bloody odds for generations.

The “End Game” for both is the same.  There is an old (supposed) Arab proverb, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend“.  This is a doctrine that has been implemented by military powers throughout history and has been used by most.  The Western Alliance and Russia both used each other to defeat the Nazi’s in WW2.  It is no strange tool to politics.  In fact, it is nearly a prescribed strategy in politics.

The interesting thing about this modern scenario in America, is each ideological group believes they will come out in control in the end.  The basic premise is use the others to my advantage until our common enemy is vanquished, then I can overpower the other interests. It is classic Saul Alinsky.   The Leftist Elite are so arrogant, they believe they can “be nice” to Islam and help/use Islam to subvert the American system and culture, and afterward; when the objective is reached and America is “Fundamentally transformed” (as Mr. Obama so eloquently put it) then Islam will politely co-exist with the Socialists.  Laughable…

Every good Islamist and those who know Islam understand that “co-existence” is not in the Quranic vocabulary.  But the arrogance of the godless Humanists brings a strong delusion which renders the mind incapable of basic reasoning skills and the natural instinct of survival.  The principle of Abrogation, taught by Muhammad and attested to in Quran, does not allow Islam to “co-exist” with any government, culture, or religion. It must, by its very nature, dominate.

Someone is going to be very disappointed in “the enemy of his enemy” after the objective is accomplished.  There is no dhimmitude status afforded atheists.  There is no tolerance for intellectual dissension.  Only conversion or death.

Social Justice? To the Leftist Elite it’s a Utopian pipe dream.  To Islam? It is prescribed by Sharia. One needs only examine those countries where Sharia is enforced to see what a Utopian lifestyle is available there.  Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia…

Social Justice indeed.

I guess it depends on who is “defining the narrative”…Keep in mind the Islamic narrative in the United States is currently being defined by CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood.





New Khilafah!

30 03 2011

Make way for the “New Caliphate” that is currently being set up right before our very eyes! If you have been living in the Outback somewhere and haven’t yet learned the term “Caliphate”, just think of it as an Islamic Pope which not only rules the religion but all Islamic politics as well. It is a complete governing system by which the successors of the “Prophet Muhammad” went forth conquering and then ruling in the name of Allah, “The Compassionate, the Merciful”.

In past articles we have discussed how the Muslim Brotherhood is moving to accomplish this goal. Just one more time I will briefly review:

The last Caliphate was seated in Istanbul, Turkey for 400 years during the Ottoman Empire, until just after World War 1 when Mustafa Kemal Ataturk led the Turkish Revolution and abolished the highest Islamic clerical position in the world in 1924. He desired to strip Islam of the political stranglehold it had on the Muslim people, specifically the Turks, in order to bring his new civilized Republic roaring into the 20th Century. He reformed everything from government and education, to women’s rights and fashion, promoting modern Western style clothing as a means to modernize the psyche of the people. His success was magnificent, although not un-opposed. There was even an assassination attempt on him. Undaunted, Kemal continued his policy of denying Islam a political seat at the table of government. This division remained successful until the Islamist Movement within and from outside Turkey succeeded in getting a toehold in government once again with the formation in 2001 of the AKP (party) which has been steadily gaining in elections ever since. In fact, the two top officers in government, the President, Abdullah Gul, and the Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogen are both members of the AK Party.

Recent events in Egypt have initiated talks between Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and the Turks. In fact, the Muslim Brotherhood have been in talks with many groups in many states throughout the region. The Brotherhood’s long and patient, growing presence in Egypt and neighboring countries is beginning to pay dividends for those Islamic Revolutionaries who have long dreamed of re-establishing the Caliphate.

Anyone who has walking around sense has been aware that if the Brotherhood was not completely responsible for the Egyptian revolt, they were certainly in support and cunningly working into position to co-opt the movement. All the West was touting the successful toppling of the dictator Mubarak, and completely oblivious to the designs of the Brotherhood. Most still are.

So to dispel any doubt that my cynicism is unfounded, take a look at this article in the Jerusalem Post quoting the new Egyptian Foreign Minister as saying that Iran should not be regarded by Egypt as an enemy state. He went on to add that Hezbollah is part of the political fabric of Lebanon and that communication between Hezbollah and Egypt is welcomed. For the first time in history you have Sunni Islam working with Shia Islam for a common objective!

Hamas in the “Palestinian” West Bank of Israel is also a Muslim Brotherhood group. In fact, during those years of every Egyptian President since Nassar, the Brotherhood members pursued by government for sedition found safe haven in Gaza and West Bank where they continued their jihad.

So what about Tunisia, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Bahrain? One by one these nation states are being re-organized. Why? Simply this: In order for these Islamic states to be “united”, or pulled together in an Islamic Federation, their irreligious authoritarian style governments must be broken down. What kind of Federation? Khalifa, of course.

The Caliphate is a requirement of Islam, particularly as we draw closer to the “coming of the Mahdi”. (Shia Islam calls him the Twelfth Imam.) This “Messianic” figure in Islamic theology will come to Earth during a time of unprecedented chaos, which must be brought about by a final push of Islamic domination of the entire world. The Mahdi will come and establish his position and go forth conquering the Earth for Islam, stamping out all other religions. In fact, Isa, the Muslim “Jesus” according to Hadith and Islamic scholars, will return and actually kill the Jews and Christians who refuse to follow the Mahdi. Isa will be, essentially the greatest military general in Islamic history. The Mahdi, upon his appearance, will lead a great army of Muslims on Jerusalem and set up his government from the Temple Mount, which of course used to be the site of the Jewish Temple and is now occupied by two mosque’s: The Al Aqsa Masjid and the more recognized Dome of the Rock. The Mahdi will appear riding upon a white horse and Islamic scholars insist the prophecy of Revelation 6:2 (yes, of the New Testament, no less!) is of the Mahdi himself.

Well, my Muslim Bible scholar friends, this prophecy is of the coming of a major figure indeed. However, this fellow is…well…the Antichrist! [There are many Islamic prophecies that line up perfectly with the Bible, only the characters are exactly the opposite. Walid Shoebat has done a lot of work on this topic and a book by Joel Richardson entitled “Islamic Antichrist” will pull it all into context for anyone interested.]

So you see, both Shia (Iran) and Sunni Islam share a common belief in the coming of a great “Messianic” character which will be the greatest leader the world has ever seen. He will complete the unification of the Islamic world and lead the extermination of Judaism and Christianity, paganism, and atheism for ever and finally, Allah’s religion will reign supreme, as the Koran calls for. The final Khalifate.

What’s that? You say you don’t believe in prophecy? Well, no matter…the Muslims do…





The Patience of the Muslim Brotherhood: “Community Organizers”

18 02 2011

As we watch events unfold in the Middle East, more information is coming to light about events leading up to the Revolution in Egypt. While there are many factors to consider, including the obvious that Mubarak was not too concerned with the economic welfare of his country or the Egyptian people, there has been a constant throughout the history of Egypt for over 80 years now. One thing that Mubarak was concerned about was the growing power of an outlaw group which has always had the Egyptian government in its sights.

In 1928 the formation of Al Ikhwan Al Muslimun, or “The Muslim Brotherhood” (MB) began a slow, diligent, and determined move by fundamentalist Muslims to influence governments around the world beginning at its birthplace, Egypt. It’s objective, to revive Islam and call Muslims from Jahiliya, “the condition of ignorance”, and re-assert global power and re-establish the Khalifa, that global Caliphate, which was the high point of Islamic civilization from the 7th Century until the fall of the Ottoman Empire after WWI.
There has been a lot of arguing about what the Ikhwan is and what it is not. I prefer to allow it to identify itself. The creed of the Muslim Brotherhood pretty much says it all: “Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our guide; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our means; and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our inspiration.” Anything we add to that mission statement is supplemental.

Another point of clarification could be those who are currently and have been involved in the MB. Besides Hassan Al-Banna, the founder of MB, the chief narrative has come from Seyyid Qutb, author of Milestones, which was intended to be the vanguard document for global Islamic Revival, returning Muslims to a fundamental adherence to the “one true religion of Allah”. Qutb was very disappointed in his fellow Muslims and declared that they had fallen into a state of ignorance not matched since Muhammad himself had pulled the pagan, idolatrous, Arabs out of “jahili” and into the true place of Islam, “Submission” to Allah.

Qutb repeatedly scolds them for succumbing to Western influences of prosperity, nationalism, and capitalism, and reminds them that the collective, that is the “Ummah”, is priority. It is the Muslim’s duty to bring all governments under Islamic control, as one Islamic Nation of Muslims, and in 1965, Seyyid Qutb was executed for sedition against the government of the United Arab Republic of Egypt.

The interesting thing about Egypt is its own Constitution declares in Article Two that Islam is the official religion of the land, and that all laws must be in compliance with Islamic Jurisprudence, i.e. Sharia Law. Ever since Egypt gained its independence from Great Britain, the Islamists have struggled to gain power and hold the government in compliance with their own Constitution.

President Gamal Nassar (1954-1970) allied himself with the Soviets during the Cold War in exchange for military aid and power guarantee. He was brutal to the MB and those not executed were jailed indefinitely. Anwar Sadat succeeded Nassar in 1970 after Nassar died, and began moving away from Soviet allegiance and courted the United States, instituting Western style capitalist economic policy, encouraging foreign and private investment.

In 1973 Sadat tried to recover the Sinai, which Nassar lost in the ’67 war, but was again defeated by Israel. Finally, Anwar Sadat was successful politically in regaining Sinai in exchange for a formal peace treaty with Israel in March 1979. This made him famous in the world scene, winning the Nobel Peace Prize, but also got Egypt ejected from the Arab League of Nations.

The MB had been severely held in check by Sadat, but this treaty with Israel would cost Sadat his life. A MB operative within the Egyptian Army gunned down Sadat and several other Egyptians along with foreign dignitaries from many countries, including the US, during a military review in 1981. Wounded in that attack by MB was one Hosni Mubarak.

In spite of Mubarak’s persecution of the Ikhwan, they have steadily gained power politically and socially across Egypt, making hay with Mubarak’s poor economical policies, until currently at least 20% of the population identify themselves directly with the MB. That’s over 16 million people…

In a short recount of current events concerning MB, recent facts reported by Florida Security Council show that changes within MB’s leadership may have accelerated the events unfolding in Egypt.

Muhammad Badie, a lifelong associate and leader within MB was actually imprisoned with Seyyid Qutb in 1965, and served 9 years of a 15 year sentence before being released. Badie married the daughter of a Brotherhood pioneer named Mohamed Ali Alshenawy, who also served life in prison, avoiding a death sentence given in 1954.

On 10/10/2010 Dr. Muhammad Badie issued a declaration of jihad on the US and Israel. In December the uprising in Tunisia began. January 8th, 2011, Al Ahzar University at Cairo’s Dr. Imad Mustafa issues a statement legalizing “offensive jihad” against all governments which resist Islamic rule, visa vi Sharia law. On 1/16/2011Badie was selected as MB Supreme Spiritual Guide. Within days the first protests began in Cairo. There have been repeated calls by the MB to eliminate Sadat’s treaty and attack Israel.

As we continue to monitor events in the region, Tunisia and Egypt are being joined by Yemen, Jordan, and Bahrain, with Saudi Arabia becoming very concerned. Just today, Friday February 18th, a new face not seen in Egypt for 40 years has emerged from Qatar. MB’s own Yussaf al-Qaradawi makes his return appearance as a new spiritual leader, dubbed Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, in Egypt. He is much more charismatic than Badie (not replacing Badie as “Supreme Spiritual Guide”) and has the potential of emulating the very charismatic Ayathollah Khomeni of Iran in 1979.

As I have reported last year, Turkey is currently being Islamized, dropping its long standing alliance with Israel, and has been entering talks with Muslim Brotherhood representatives as well.

A new day is indeed dawning in the Islamic world. In a matter of just a few weeks we shall see where all this is leading. Western media is still euphoric; spouting “democracy for everyone!” while misunderstanding that democracy in other Islamic revolutions has led to places like Iran, and Iraq’s Saddam Hussein regime.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what they are going to enjoy for dinner…One other thing. Keep your eye on Turkey.





Muslim Brotherhood: What You Need to Know

4 02 2011

“Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our guide; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our means; and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our inspiration.” Creed of the Muslim Brotherhood

Although I have always posted original material on this site (with the exception of the Flt. 93 Page) I am going to break with that policy concerning this post. The information is invaluable and timely.

A couple of years ago I was privileged to become acquainted with two men who inspired me to begin educating people on the real threat of Islam to America. John Guandolo, former FBI agent, was one of those men. He encouraged me to find the information for myself and cross check it with what I already knew. John is now Vice President, Strategic Planning, for SEG. He has since changed venues and taken a bit more visible role, appearing on many programs continuing to bring needed information to an increasingly curious public.

John recently sent me a link to this document which discusses everything I began to put forth into an article for this site, and with his permission and full blessing I am pleased to bring you this information. It follows in its entirety:

Current Events: The Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement in Egypt 2 February 2011

In light of recent events in Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, and elsewhere, it is important to understand that the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is at the root of these events, and is simply following their strategic plan. The Global Islamic Movement (led by the MB) is now seizing power in these countries according to their World Underground Movement Plan (see below). What we are witnessing in Egypt is simple to understand when done so in light of the Brotherhood’s stated objectives, documents, and the writings/speeches of their key leaders.

These are the facts surrounding the events in Egypt that may be helpful in understanding what is actually happening there:

· The Muslim Brotherhood was created in Egypt in 1928 as a global revolutionary Sunni Islamic Movement to re-establish the Global Islamic State (Caliphate) under which Shariah (Islamic Law) is the law of the land
· All authoritative Islamic Law mandates Muslims to wage “Jihad” – only defined in Islamic Law as “warfare against non-Muslims” – until the world is claimed for Islam
· The MB’s Creed is: “Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our guide; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our means; and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our inspiration.”
· The Muslim Brotherhood has published strategic documents detailing how they infiltrate societies and replace the governmental systems (non-adherent Islamic systems and non-Muslim governments) with Shariah (Islamic Law)
· The MB’s document, “Phases of the World Underground Movement Plan” defines five (5) phases of the MB’s infiltration into a society:
o I. Discreet / Secret establishment of elite leadership
o II. Gradual appearance on the public scene & utilizing various public activities
o III. Escalation phase, prior to conflict/confrontation with rulers, utilizing mass media
o IV. Open public confrontation with the government through political pressure approach
o V. Seizing power to establish the Islamic Nation
· In October 2010, the international leader (Supreme Guide) of the MB, Mohammed Badie, accused Arab & Muslim regimes of not following Islamic Law, and called for Jihad against Israel & the U.S.
· On January 8, 2011, Dr. Imad Mustafa (Al Azhar) issued a fatwa calling for “offensive jihad”
· January 15, 2011: Tunisia in turmoil as the President flees
· January 24, 2011: Protests break out in Egypt
· February 2, 2011: Jordan’s King fires his Cabinet following public protests
· February 2, 2011: Yemen’s President Saleh says he will step down in 2013
· The “unrest” in Egypt is being orchestrated by the Muslim Brotherhood
· Egypt is in Phase 5 of the MB’s Plan
· The Muslim Brotherhood’s overt/violent operation in Egypt seeks to replace the current government with one which will fulfill the MB’s objective – to ensure the full implementation of Shariah (Islamic Law) in Egypt
· In 1980, the Egyptian Constitution was amended to make Shariah (Islamic Law) the primary source of legislation in Egypt, therefore, Egypt is already an Islamic State
· The greatest friction point between the MB and the Mubarak regime has been the regime’s failure to support the full implementation of Islamic Law in Egypt per the Constitution
· Senior U.S. leadership has stated Egyptians “want what we want.” Western media portrays the demonstrators in Egypt as people who want “democracy” and “freedom.” The Egyptians themselves, however, overwhelmingly support Shariah, and many support terrorist organizations (see below)
· A 2010 Pew Research Poll revealed the following about Egyptians views:
o 95% believe Islam should play a “large role in politics”
o 49% believe Islam only plays a “small role” in Egypt today
o 84% believe apostates from Islam should face the death penalty
o 82% believe adulterers should be stoned
o 77% believe thieves should be flogged or have their hands cut off
o 54% believe men and women should be segregated in the work place
o 49% have a favorable opinion of Hamas
o 30% have a favorable opinion of Hizbollah
o 20% have a favorable opinion of Al Qaeda
· The aforementioned poll indicates a vast majority of Egyptians do not, in fact, believe in Western principles of individual liberties, human rights, or governance.
· Egypt is a member of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the second largest international body in the world – the UN is the largest. The OIC member states include all 57 Islamic States in the world, including Egypt
· The OIC officially served the “Cairo Declaration” to the UN in 1993 which specifically defines “Human Rights” as those rights defined by “Shariah”

Critical Linkage: It can be demonstrated that many Muslim advisors to the U.S. government are Muslim Brothers or sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood cause. The most prominent Islamic organizations in the United States, with which the U.S. government outreaches, are all controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. These include hundreds of groups, but specifically all of the Islamic organizations working with the U.S. government including, but not limited to:

o Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)
o Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)
o Muslim Student Association (MSA)
o Muslim American Society (MAS)
o Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)
o Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA)
o North American Islamic Trust (NAIT)
o International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT)
o Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)

This document is meant to put the current events around the world in a new light for those who read it. What we are witnessing may be the overt revolutionary overthrow of governments around the world by the International Muslim Brotherhood and their collaborators. This is the same Muslim Brotherhood advising the U.S. National Leadership and our National Security apparatus on how to respond to the events in Egypt and elsewhere.

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.
