The Great Black Beast

14 11 2010

The first victim of Islam is the Muslim.

September 11, 2001

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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





To Define the Enemy You Must Know Him

11 11 2010

No other war in history has been met by such an imbecilic response as the Jihad America finds itself in. In order to survive a nation must be willing to identify and then subsequently meet the enemy on the battlefield using tactics that are effective enough to thwart the enemy attack. Unless and until the enemy is identified there is no hope for victory. Just ask Thomas Jefferson, who so often is hailed as owning a Koran. He read it in order to know and understand the enemy he was facing in the “Barbary Pirates” who were ravaging trade ships in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic coasts of Spain and Africa. Then he sent the Marines to the “Shores of Tripoli”. Jefferson did not try to negotiate with the “Musselmen” (then popular term for “Muslim”). He met them according to their own terms. No more piracy from that source for many years.

Elisabeth Wolff and Defending Free Speech

2 11 2010

ACT! for America was founded by Brigitte Gabriel, a Lebanese Christian who experienced first hand the terror of Islamic Fundamentalism. She is a well known speaker and author, her latest book “They Must be Stopped” is available on the ACT! for America website. On the website you can sign up for daily email updates that keep up with current movements of Sharia and the Islamic global movement.

It was on a recent email update that I learned of Elisabeth Wolff, an Austrian woman which is basically doing the same thing I do; teach as many people as I can about Islamic Fundamentalism and the dangers thereof. Although I have not contributed nearly as much as Elisabeth I still feel a kinship and loyalty to a “fellow soldier”.

Elisabeth Wolff is a speaker and contributing writer to “Gates of Vienna”, a website that is on my blogroll. She has become the subject of prosecution by her government for “Hate Speech” because she teaches the truth about Islam and Sharia Law. Her story caught my attention and I could not ignore her plight. If America continues on the current path of self destruction, I too may experience what Elisabeth is feeling.

I have included a link to her website that you can visit click here and see her story and join me in leaving a contribution for freedom of speech.

God Bless you Elisabeth.

Communist Invasion or Islamic Colonialism?

1 10 2010

Sometime in the future the morning headline reads:

“America Invaded: New Totalitarian Government Established”

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sound ludicrous?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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





Of Mosques and Men: Flight 93 Memorial Mosque

27 08 2010

Flight 93 Memorial Mosque

While America groggily arises from the slumber of Islamic ignorance, mosques are springing up nationwide. And although the Cordoba House Islamic Center (commonly known as the Ground Zero Mosque or GZM) in Lower Manhattan very near WTC has recently been the focal point of media pundits left and right across the networks and airwaves, the quiet steady work of “dawa” continues across America. It’s nothing new in context of the 24/7 news cycle, but when you consider the history of the United States, established 1776 by declaration, this phenomena of “dawa” is fairly young. In fact, when you take into account that prior to 1900 there was not a single designated mosque in the United States, it is startling to discover the oldest standing mosque in America was built in 1934 in, of all places, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

For the Western mind, “dawa” is somewhat the Islamic version of “missions”. It includes everything from active proselytizing to building schools, cultural centers, hospitals, and universities. It seems very benign at the onset, and every Western Culture in the world has permitted it openly. If Islam were simply another religious option in the realm of world religions, as looked upon by most societies, there would be no harm in allowing Islam to compete in the arena of theological discussion and philosophy. To our detriment, this has been the attitude of a pluralistic American psyche. Islam cannot be considered or classified as simply a “religion”. It is a socio-political ideology with a religious element.

When Islam penetrates a culture, it has no intention of co-existence. The purpose is to remake the entire host society in the image of Islam. Therefore, the comparison to “missionary work” is quite insufficient to capture the overall objective. More accurately, the term “Colonization” seems to encompass the goals of Islam. The goal, as established in Islam itself, through its founding documents (Koran and Hadith) is world domination by Islam, and nothing less. Islam works toward this goal through various methods including jihad, colonization, infiltration and subversion, propaganda, litigation, politics, education, business, and the list goes on. While the West has its eye on the “Jihad Machine” and the “Terror Network”, the real work of “dawa” is taking and securing ground quietly and with little or no opposition. In this way, terrorism is a strategic diversion, allowing the complacent and complicit media to “reveal” a markedly stark contrast in the methods of “moderate” Islam.

In 1994 there were only about 500,000 Muslims attending Mosque in America. Today there are approximately 3 million [this is a conservative figure, some estimates are higher]. In 2000, just prior to the 911 attacks, there were about 1200 mosques in the United States and most of those had been built in the 1990’s. Today there are 3000 at best estimate, with many under construction. The GZM will make about twenty on Manhattan Island alone.

The Islamic Revolution of 1979 marked the beginning of the “Third Jihad”, a revival of Islamic Fundamentalism lamented for by Seyyid Qutb in his book “Milestones”, which exploded onto the world scene with the attacks on American Embassies in Pakistan and Iran (Iran Hostage Crisis) and the seizure of the Grand Mosque at Mecca by Wahabbi rebels, which were not to be outdone by the following Lebanese civil war, the assassination of Anwar Sadat, as well as uprisings and rioting throughout the Islamic world.

November 20, 1979 was the 1st of Muharram the year 1400 on the Islamic calendar. This new century, the 15th, is to be the Islamic Century, when Islam finally subdues the entire Earth. We are now 31 years into that century. One virtue you have to acknowledge of Islam; it is very patient. And it appears to be running on schedule.

In this age of instant global communication and information, it is virtually impossible to militarily invade the enemy and subdue him by the sword as was done during the 1st Century of Islam (620-720AD). The United States in particular is too strong militarily for that tactic to work, but our soft underbelly is our open and free society, and this is where Islam has struck. Couple this with our own willingness to shrug off our own spiritual heritage of Judeo-Christian origin, and two to three generations of Americans have no identifiable foundation to base our own worldview upon, while accepting every vain philosophy and belief system as at least equal, if not superior, to our own.

Regardless, every once in a while something like the Cordoba Initiative (GZM) awakens us momentarily and we groggily protest and may even come to our feet in opposition and shout, “That’s just wrong!”… but for the life us, we can’t remember why. And if we could remember why it’s wrong, we can’t say exactly what the “right” thing is.

So while the debate rages on over the Cordoba Initiative at Park 51, the National Park Service carries out the planned design for the massive Crescent Memorial being built in the field at Shanksville, Pennsylvania. This huge crescent, composed of carefully selected trees (most look like Maple which will be fiery red in the Fall) and shrubbery, will be about a half mile across at the open end of which is the crash site of Flight 93, the fourth plane hijacked on 911 that was crashed during an on board battle between American passengers unwilling to allow themselves to be used to destroy more American lives and landmarks, and their Muslim adversaries who had slashed the throats of flight attendants and the pilots, intending to destroy either the White House or the US Capital. The orientation of this crescent design is pointed almost exactly to “Qibla”, the shortest direction to Mecca, and seems to create a huge “mihrab”, the rounded out niche indicating qibla in many mosques around the world.

In addition, amid another interlocking series of arbor crescents, there is a 93 feet high tower (also crescent shaped) from which is suspended forty large tubes which act as wind chimes, emitting low, never ending moans. Forty is the number of passengers and crew on board, which are buried here. I surmise these forty souls must never know peace and quiet, perhaps because they are infidels languishing in hell.

Another note of interest: The crash site and memorial wall are located at the place between the points of the crescent where the star would be located on some Islamic flags. Another victory mosque, designed, built, and funded by the victims own countrymen?

Oh, there have been some modifications to be sure: most notably another, shorter, semi-circle of trees adjacent to and facing the open end of the crescent but not closing it into a circle. And the name has been changed from the “Crescent of Embrace” to the “Circle of Embrace”. This design was selected out of one thousand entries nominated for this project, and was created by Paul and Milena Murdoch, architects from Los Angeles. Paul Murdoch was quoted as saying of the “Crescent of Embrace”, it is “to be a gesture of healing and bonding.” One of the benefactors who funded the design competition was Heinz Foundations (Theresa Heinz, married to John Kerry).

The tragedy of 911 will forever live in the minds of those of us who, via live television feed, witnessed the second plane smash into the second tower at WTC, then in horror watched the people jump to their deaths rather than burn alive. We will forever replay the sequence of the crumbling towers disintegrating upon people and buildings, turning Lower Manhattan into a surreal moonscape of gray images of devastation as the cloud of dust and debris enveloped everything and everyone in its path like a famished demon creature from hell. The unspeakable helplessness consumed everyone who saw it. The compassion felt for those who lost family members on that day, not only at Ground Zero, but at the Pentagon and on Flight 93, lingers yet. The day saw American blood soaked into American soil on a scale not seen since the American Civil War. We were all stunned.

Now, as we approach the 9th anniversary of that dreadful day, we remember those who died and reflect upon our fellow citizens who committed selfless acts of bravery, duty, and compassion for their fellow man. We consider those military personnel who willingly put themselves in the line of fire in service to our country, seeking justice for those innocents who perished at the hands of the 19 Sons of Hell on September 11.

On September 11, 2011, the “Circle of Embrace”, formerly known as the “Crescent of Embrace” will be dedicated. Not a single thing has been altered from the original basic design, just a few additions to try and placate the “protesters” by disguising it.

A new name, add some trees here and there, it’s still the crescent. The symbol of Islam. The Moon; according to the Bible, the Ruler of the Darkness (Genesis 1:16-17).

I am feeling ill…

Post Script: Author Alec Rawls has written a book entitled “Crescent of Betrayal” and is on my blogroll listing as “ErrorTheory”. Alec has done a tremendous amount of research on this memorial and I recommend my readers to visit his site and get the book. He also placed an ad in the Somerset Daily American in which he diagrams the entire memorial site, detailing all the “coincidences” the memorial happens to contain that seem to memorialize Islam and the terrorists on board the plane. (Most of the memorial information can also be verified on the NPS website and Wikipedia.)

Post Post Script: Alec has asked me to post related material concerning this Memorial. I have added a page that will be designated for these and any other postings not written by “Defining the Narrative”. Please visit the page by clicking the “Crescent Memorial: Flight 93 Page” on the right sidebar. There are videos and more on that page posted by Alec.





Fundamentals

1 07 2010

There is an old parable which goes something like this: “For want of a clench, a nail was lost. For want of a nail, a shoe was lost. For want of a shoe, a horse was lost. For want of a horse, a knight was lost. For want of a knight a battle was lost. For want of a battle, a kingdom was lost.” Well, something like that.

Words are like nails. The definition of a word determines the tightness of the clench. I’m into definitions. I suppose that is obvious from the name of this blogsite. The reason I’m into definitions is, to quote a famous radio personality, “Words mean things”. Words define sentences, which define subjects, which define ideas. Communication, even sign language, is reliant upon words to inflect meaning and definition of language expressing emotion, thoughts, intents, and ideas.

One word which particularly interests me these days is “fundamental“. The commonly used internet dictionary Merriam-Webster defines “fundamental” as follows: 1-a: serving as an original or generating source; [primary] b: serving as a basis supporting existence or determining essential structure or function; [basic] 2-a: of or relating to essential structure, function, or facts; [radical also: of or dealing with general principles rather than practical application ] b: adhering to fundamentalism 3: of, relating to, or produced by the lowest component of a complex vibration 4: of central importance: [principal ] 5: belonging to one’s innate or ingrained characteristics: [deep-rooted] (note: some punctuation/symbols edited for clarity in this format)

Fundamental is a word used to express definitive structure or skeletal origin and principles concerning architecture, music, athletics, sociology, politics, religion, government, virtually everything tangible and intangible. Everything has a fundamental nature, cause, precept, function, ideology, value, means, or purpose. Even this article has a fundamental purpose.

That purpose specifically is to discuss the fundamentals of religion, and perhaps briefly, our government. Now, if you have read my page “God Hates Religion” you probably already know where I stand on the definition of religion. But for the sake of this discussion, I am going to refer to religion in the general sense and explore two of those: Islam and Christianity.

The fundamentals of a religion define it. As with a building, the foundation determines the size, shape, weight and height of a building. That is source of its existence. It’s “founding”. The fundamentals of a government are revealed in it’s founding documents. The founding documents of our American Government are the Mayflower Compact, The Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and The Constitution of the United States. Further insight can be gained by studying the people who wrote those documents: “The Founders”. These define American government and give insight to America’s purpose as a nation. (Incidentally, I think I remember candidate Obama saying he wanted to “fundamentally change America”. Wonder what he meant by that?)

Likewise, in order to get to the fundamentals of a religion you must explore the founding documents and those key figures of it’s early existence. Those who adhere to the fundamentals of their religion are known as “fundamentalists”.

Fundamentalist Christians take the Bible as the Word of God. They also trust in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, as the Christ, the Son of the Living God as recorded in the pages of the Bible; Prophesied over 300 times in the Old Testament, and the central figure of the New Testament. They believe that He was born of a virgin, crucified on a Roman cross, suffered for the sins of all mankind, died, was buried and then was resurrected from the dead. The New Testament places Him present on Earth for 40 days after the resurrection and records Him to be seen by a minimum of over 500 people. He then ascended into Heaven and will return at the conclusion of this present age of Grace. These are the fundamentals of the Christian faith, which of course are dependent upon the Bible as its founding documentation.

Examining the Bible as a founding document, we find a collection of documents actually, from the Law of Moses, to the Psalms, to the Prophets and including the Gospels and the letters right up to the prophecy of The Revelation. These documents written over a period of 1500 years, given by revelation through the Holy Spirit to 40 men over that span of time, all fit together, none contradicting another.

Islamic Fundamentalists likewise take the Koran as the word of Allah as dictated to Muhammad by the angel Jibril (Gabriel to you Bible scholars). They do not however believe that Muhammad is the son of Allah (“Allah forbid that he have a son!” (Koran Sura 19). Muhammad never claimed to be the son of Allah, or even the messiah. He did however claim to be the last and greatest Prophet, and established the law of abrogation, which nullifies every prophet, scripture, and revelation to precede him. Muhammad even used the law of abrogation to nullify those passages of Koran which taught peace and love, by those which teach violence and death to those who do not submit to Allah’s religion of Islam. Sura 9 was the last major revelation from Jibril to Muhammad and it is indeed the most violent. Abrogation defined is “the latter takes precedence over the former”.

During the last ten years of his life, Muhammad himself led or planned 66 raids in many of which men, women, and children alike were butchered, property confiscated or burned, and slaves taken, used or traded. He took to wife a 6 year old child, consummating the marriage when she was 9. Although Muhammad had limited his followers to only 4 wives, he enjoyed 11 not counting slave girls he kept to service him.

Muhammad would fall into a “trance” (some speculate a seizure) and come to with a new revelation from Allah, which he recited (this is what Quran means, “recitation”) to his companions. Muhammad did not read or write, being illiterate. All his Koran was verbally transferred and retained by memory for years until after his death, and during the Uthman Caliphate the Koran was finally standardized in written form, aggregating bits and pieces of Sura’s from palm leaves, bone, skins, and memory of the reciters.

The “Golden Age of Islam” that is so vaunted by Islam’s scholars and sympathizers, was that time period after Muhammad’s death, in which Islam was ruled by the “Four Rightly Guided Caliphs” of the 7th Century up through about 1100 AD. All four of those Caliphs were either killed in battle or assassinated. The fourth, Muhammad’s son-in-law Ali presided over a massive civil war in which Muslims killed Muslims by the tens of thousands. From this came the two schools of Sunni and Shia Islam.

So there is your founding for Islam. A Koran which in fact contradicts itself in numerous places, is inconsistent in content and directive, a prophet which claimed to be the exclusive, last and greatest channel of Allah’s law and directive for Mankind, and a blood-soaked century in which the believers were ordered, and dutifully obeyed, murdering, robbing, raping those who would not submit to Muhammad’s new religion of Islam.

Now at this point,, you may be thinking, “What about the Crusades when the Christians killed so many Muslims?” Great question and I’m glad that you asked. Remember now, we are talking about Fundamentalism. The Crusades did not begin until 1095 AD. Jesus died in 30 AD.

Jesus never told His disciples to kill anyone. In fact, to the contrary he said, “Those who live by the sword will die by the sword” and He chastised Peter for attempting to defend Him with his sword.  His commission to His followers was to “Go into all the World and preach the Gospel to every creature”. (Mark 16:15) Muhammad said, “Make war on them: Allah will chastise them at your hands and humble them.” (Sura 9:14) The only blood that Jesus ever shed was His own.

The Crusades were largely organized and carried out by the Roman Church originally to stop the tide of Islam invading Europe.  Some Crusades were sponsored by kings themselves seeking glory in battle and sometimes they devolved into something less honorable and Jews, and Papacy rejecting Christians were killed instead of Muslim invaders. This never was a fundamental facet to Christianity and has been held up by its critics as part and parcel of the Christian religion. No, it doesn’t stick. Go back and check the definition of “Fundamental”. Then read your Bible again. Oh, there was plenty of blood for the Christians too, in their first 300 years. Christian blood quenched the dust of the Roman Colosseum and amphitheatres throughout the empire. Romans hunted them for sport, and used them as human torches at garden parties. They were despised, nonetheless they multiplied in such great numbers they changed history.

You see, the fundamental documents, the teachings, and the founders of the religion defines it. Those beliefs are at the core, not the extremities or the fringe. Diagram A illustrates the politically correct view as opposed to the factually correct view.

As you can see the Fundamentalist must be the core value holder simply by definition. If placed on the extremities of the circle, it is no longer a fundamental but an extremity. For example, your hand is an extremity; you can exist without it. Your core (torso) contains your vital organs. Without your vital organs your extremities cannot exist and function.

Diagram B illustrates the effect that each has upon the mainstream. The Fundamentalist, adhering to the core of the belief system, is the influencing factor on the entirety of the religion. The closer you are to the fundamentals, the less you are influenced by the extremities. Conversely, the Extremist, or the fringe element has no practical access to the core values or the fundamentals of the belief system.

So here now is the myth of Islam: “Islam is basically a Peaceful Religion that has been “Hi-Jacked” by Extremists”. Now here is the fact: Islam was a peaceful religion for nearly 13 years while Muhammad resided in Mecca. As he became more obnoxious and belligerent the Meccan’s threatened his life and he and his companions fled to Medina which was a bit more accepting. From there he began raiding Meccan caravans for a living and finally provoked a war.

Islam at its very core is flawed. The fundamentals are inconsistent with a practical and uniform belief system. Its self proclaimed prophet is inconsistent with all that is just and good. It’s deity called Allah is impersonal, untouchable, unloving, and without grace and mercy. Heavy on judgment, Allah would never condescend to sinful Man and offer any semblance of relationship.

This all should make sense by now; Allah is not the God of the Bible. Allah’s symbol is the Moon. The Bible says the moon is the ruler over the darkness, “the lesser light to rule the night”. (Gen. 1:16) The “greater light” to rule the day is known as the Sun. That’s Messiah. (Malachi 4:2) More specifically, Jesus is referred to by Peter as the “day star” (2 Pet. 1:17-19).

So if Allah is not God, and is the “ruler of darkness”, who does that remind you of, Hmmm? Fundamentally, speaking…..
