The Question of the Decade: Why Does Obama Support the Muslim Brotherhood?

The following article is written by Kurt Schlichter, writer, lawyer, veteran Army Officer.  First appeared on Townhall.com.  

I have included the article here because his title question has been nagging me as well and I agree with every word Kurt wrote here.

Why is Crushing the Muslim Brotherhood a Bad Thing?
By Kurt Schlichter

Here’s a wacky, outside-the-envelope idea that we just might want to give a shot – let’s try defeating our enemies. It’s bound to work out better than protecting and empowering them.

The Egyptian Army is taking tough stand against the Muslim Brotherhood. It is backed up by an Egyptian people who rapidly tired of the Islamofascist freak show a minority of them elected. The Army, while losing many of their own, killed a lot of the insurgent Brothers. For some reason we’re supposed to be upset.

I just can’t work up a lot of caring because a pack of murderous subversives whose declared goal is returning the globe to a permanent state of Seventh Century Bedouin theocracy tried to fight it out with a tough, well-armed and patriotic Egyptian military and got their teeth kicked in.

Let me stake out what, inexplicably, seems to be a minority position here in the United States: I want to see the Muslim Brotherhood decisively and permanently defeated. I don’t care if they surrender or die, as long as they lose.

Maybe I’m just not as attuned to the nuance and subtlety of the situation as our political elite. Maybe I don’t care deeply about freedom like they do, with my two deployments actually defending freedom hardly comparable to their above and beyond the call of duty posturing on talk shows.

Maybe I’m just too simplistic. After all, in my years in the infantry I was taught that you find the enemy, fix him in place and destroy him. As a lawyer, no client ever came to me and asked me to ensure the creep who launched the frivolous lawsuit against him walked out of court happy. I never got into a fight on the playground that ended with a hug.

As unpopular as it is in the rarified circles of our squeamish elitists, defeating our enemies still seems like a pretty good plan. But then I’m not burdened with the doubts so many elitists share about the essential legitimacy of pursuing America’s national interests.

At some level, many of these people feel that we Americans – we Westerners in general – deserve to lose. I don’t share those doubts. Our enemy is evil, plain and simple, and it needs to be beaten.

The Muslim Brotherhood plus the jihadi sociopaths associated with it are most certainly our enemy. How do we know? Because they tell us so.muslim_brotherhood_1 (1)

Barack Obama: Foreign Policy Disaster

1 07 2013

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

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

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

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

Protesters in Egypt 6/30/13 H/T @skytwitius via twitter

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

His policies are setting the Middle East on fire.





Department of Justice: Insulting Islam may be Federal offense

3 06 2013

One day soon I may be a criminal for simply exercising my First Amendment right of freedom of speech and of the press.  My crime? …Criticism of Islam.

According to the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice, it may soon be a federal offense to point out the Theological incongruity, the Sociological paradox, and the Political hostility that Islam poses to the freedoms guaranteed by the founding documents of the United States of America.

Bill Killian has been the US Attorney for the Eastern District Court, Tennessee since October, 2010.  Mr. Killian will speak on June 4 at an event sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee, apparently assuring them that:

“…federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

The DOJ political appointee adds in the article that the upcoming presentation will also focus on Muslim culture with a special emphasis on the fact that the religion is no different from others, even though some in the faith have committed terrorist acts…”  via JudicialWatch.org

This move is by no means the first by the Obama DOJ to establish a protective status for an ideology hostile to, not only American society, but the US Constitution itself.  In 2010, Attorney General Eric Holder told the “Muslim Advocates”, an organization that encourages its members to not cooperate in federal terrorism investigations, that he was grateful for their partnership.

Then he touted his agency’s many efforts to strengthen the government’s relationship with Muslim and Arab-American communities, including a reinvigorated commitment to civil rights that prioritizes the prosecution of violence motivated by “religious intolerance.” The Justice Department has investigated hundreds of hate crimes against Muslims, filed a legal motion supporting a controversial Tennessee mosque and numerous discrimination lawsuits on behalf of Muslims nationwide, Holder bragged.  –  via JudicialWatch.org 

I wonder, Mr. Attorney General, how many hundreds of hate crimes against Jews or Christians have you investigated, and how many discrimination lawsuits have you filed on behalf of Christians or Jews?

It is enough that the President’s new NASA Administrator told Al Jazeera TV that Mr. Obama wanted him to reach out the Muslim world, and then that the Internal Revenue Service was, whether by direct White House order, or “dog whistle” encouragement, targeting Obama’s political enemies by audit,  or simply stonewalling conservative non-profit applications  while Muslim non-profits endured much less scrutiny, but the fact of the matter is that the United States Department of Justice is now actively advocating for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) now UN passed Resolution 16/18 which prohibits speech critical to Islam, written, spoken, or in art form.

It all figures in to the equation though.  Last week President Barack Obama declared the “war on terrorism” over, and according to the new CIA Director and Muslim convert John Brennan, the vernacular has changed, eliminating the terminology, “war on terror”, “Jihadists”, and “global war”, opting only to confirm that America is at war with Al-Qaeda, and did not want to risk the implication that “the United States is at war with Islam itself”.

Somebody tell that to Islam.

I have argued the President Obama is not a Muslim ever since he became president. This in spite of his “misspoken” statement about “my Muslim faith” in the George Stephanopolis interview,  bowing to the Saudi King, his statements at Cairo, the “Shahada Ring” that he wears as his wedding band, and mounting pro-Islamic domestic and foreign policies.  I even wrote a post declaring “Obama is not a Muslim”.  However, in light of his latest “foux pas” lamenting the loss of his youthful appearance of when he “was a strapping young Muslim Socialist”, and the use of Cabinet level government officials to make sure “The Future does not belong to those who would slander the Prophet”, I must say I cannot maintain that argument.

I wonder what America’s “re-training” Gulags will look like?  Somehow I suspect I will see one from the inside, perhaps sooner than later.  Especially when I make statements like this:

Islam is the religion of Satan and Muhammad is a false prophet.  Muslims are victimized daily by this scourge of wickedness and their only hope is Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God,  just like the rest of us!

You know where to find me.





Milestones in Review – Reposted

30 05 2013

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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





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.





Jihad? No Jihad here, move along! (Part 1)

14 03 2013

“If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make any sound?” If Islam invades a society and no one reports it, is it really happening? 

ontherise

IN THE midst of all the debate and distraction that has grabbed the attention of the American people over the last year, it seems that the “Islamic Colonial Movement” (ICM) in the United States has increased it’s intensity.  While we were busying ourselves with partisan primary elections, general elections, and whatever new “crisis du jour” is currently perpetrated upon the minds of America, from school shootings to “fiscal cliffs”, from draconian threats upon Constitutionally recognized unalienable rights to “Sequestration”, ICM has been steadily and aggressively stepping up their agenda. We are now beginning to enter into the 4th of 5 phases in the Muslim Brotherhoods plan for the Islamic invasion of America as laid out by Gaubatz and Sperry in Muslim Mafia.

  • Phase I: Establish an elite Muslim Leadership and raise Islamist consciousness in the community;
  • Phase II: Create Islamic institutions that the leadership can control and form autonomous Muslim enclaves;
  • Phase III: Infiltrate America’s political and social institutions forming a shadow state; escalate conversions; manipulate mass media to remove language offensive to Islam;
  • Phase IV:  Open hostile public confrontation over U.S. policies, riot, make militant demands for special rights and accommodations;
  • Phase V:  Wage final conflict and overthrow (jihad).

The first established Muslim Brotherhood organization in the US was the Muslim Students Association in the early 1960’s.  Until then there was scant evidence in America that Islam even existed.

Nation of Islam

Wallace Fard Muhammad (Wallace Dodd Ford) founded the only preceding “Islamic” named organization in America in 1930.  This organization was borne out of a quasi-Islamic cult known as the Moorish Science Temple which combined beliefs from Buddhism, Christianity, Freemasonry, and other religions besides Islam.   The first time I ever heard of anything Islamic was family members discussing the conversion of the boxer Cassius Clay, who took the Muslim name “Mohammad Ali”.  Shortly thereafter, I remember hearing the names “Malcom X, Kareem Abdul Jabbar (formerly Lew Alcinder), and something called “The Nation of Islam” (NOI), a popular anti-establishment political movement that had run parallel to the civil rights movement, apart from Martin Luther King.   NOI is seen as “heretical” by true Islam, but has had interesting intercourse with the likes of Moammar Ghaddaffi of Libya, who is known to have funded NOI projects, and Sudan as well as Iraq and Iran.  NOI’s leader Louis Farrakhan was offered $1 billion by Ghaddaffi. In 1996 Farrakhan was quoted as saying, ““God will not give Japan and Europe the honor of bringing down the United States. This is an honor God will bestow upon Muslims.”

This common objective has been enough, for at least through the 1990’s, for the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist minded anti-American organizations and nations to use the NOI as a handy tool, especially in urban America.  (Many of the earlier converts to NOI who became more serious about their foray’s into Islam eventually left NOI for more orthodox Sunni teachings, i.e. Malcom X, Mohammad Ali).  Today NOI is pretty much a laughing stock to true Muslims and no longer needed to advance the Islamist cause, although don’t be surprised to see NOI become involved in Jihad when the time comes.  I had a debate online with a young NOI member who told me he was going to kill me as soon as Farrakhan gives the order to begin the work of reparations.

Entering Phase IV

In case you have any doubt that the  Islamic Colonial Movement  has turned up the heat allow me to review a few news items that weren’t worthy of much mainstream media coverage over the last few months. January 31, 2013 marked the 7th annual “Texas Muslim Capital Day“, an event not exclusive to Texas by the way where, according to World Net Daily, the Dallas-Ft. Worth CAIR Director Mustafa Carrol opined, “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.”  (Most states are seeing such activities at their statehouse’s during legislative sessions these days.)

muslim_brotherhood_1 (1)

Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is the ‘point of the spear’, or should I say the ‘edge of the scimitar’ in the “Culture Jihad” in North America, as declared by the Muslim Brotherhood.  CAIR director Nihad Awad, among other CAIR executives and co-founders Ibrahim Hooper and Omar Ahmad, were also executives for the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), the mother group of CAIR and one of many US based Islamic groups named as “un-indicted co-conspirators” in the largest terror finance trial in US history, United States vs Holy Land Foundation, which was found guilty (along with its 5 executives) on 108 counts of providing support to terrorists, tax fraud, money laundering and conspiracy.  IAP was closely affiliated with HLF which was established to provide Hamas support.  CAIR, IAP, HLF, and Hamas along with other mainstream groups such as Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), North America Islamic Trust (NAIT), Muslim American Society (MAS), and Muslim Students Association (MSA) are all subgroups of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Another of these groups is MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Council) who pressured Department of Homeland Security to cease profiling air passengers who come from those countries likely to be home to Islamist radicals.  By the end of 2010 MPAC had trained 2,200 Transportation Safety Officers (TSO) in showing proper respect to Muslim travellers when passing through airport security, as well as proper handling of the Koran.  

Not that MPAC had anything to do with it, but just recently news broke that a USAF Chaplain was awarded the bronze star for his heroic work developing a powerpoint program which schools US Military and civilian contractors going into Afghanistan on showing proper respect for the Koran and elevating sensitivity to “what constitutes Islamic religious material”…“When a Muslim writes down even a few verses from the Quran on a piece of paper,that immediately gets that same protected status.” This action came swiftly on the heels of the accidental burning of Koran’s in Afghanistan by US troops, which had been used to pass written messages between detainees.  No such sensitivity training required concerning the handling of the Bible, however, after hundreds of Bibles were ordered burned by US troops to avoid offending our gracious Afghani hosts.

Freedom of Speech

The ICM in America continues to repress freedom of speech, particularly when it comes to criticizing Islam.  Last year in Dearborn, MI. Christians holding signs and witnessing were stoned and driven out of the Arab Festival, by over a hundred Muslim kids hurling filthy language along with rocks, bottles, water, urine, crates, eggs and anything else they could grab, while their parents were looking on.  Dearborn police couldn’t spare 2 officers to protect the Christian group, who were legally assembled, but employed 15 to escort them out of the area, making it plain that they, as sign holders were the threat, not the people attacking them, emboldening the riotous crowd.

On September 11, 2012 the American Ambassador to Libya was killed, along with three other Americans, two of which fought valiantly to the death protecting many other Foreign Service personnel, fighting  for hours, waiting for the White House to give the order to send rapid response teams (who were ready to deploy) to their aid.  The order never came, and all those teams could do was pick up the pieces.  Immediately the White House set forth a propaganda machine blaming a cheaply made, little exposed (until then it had received a few hundred hits) film trailer for inciting the entire Middle East, resulting in protests in Egypt, Yemen, and other places, and ultimately causing the death of these 4 Americans in Libya.  That propaganda  has been proven to be blatantly false, but the producer of the film was arrested, just as Sec. of State Clinton promised the father of one of the Navy SEALs who died behind his machine gun waiting for Washington.

The Obama administration held to that theme for almost 3 weeks and President Obama made it the centerpiece of his United Nations speech on Sept. 25th, 2012, when he said, “The future must not belong to those who would slander the Prophet of Islam.”  The following excerpt is from my previous post on that speech:

“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.”

Free speech indeed.  The President’s stern declaration warning anyone who dared to “slander the prophet” quickly emboldened the “Culture Jihadi’s” from the ICM and the screenshots below are from the Islamic Society of Kansas City who posted a petition to urge the President to pass a “Blasphemy Law” in the United States of America!

ISGKCBlasphemypet

ISGKCpetitionlink

The text of the ISGKC petition, directed to the President, begins with, “The undersigned Board Of Directors and members of the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City (ISGKC) urges you to sponsor a bill that outlaws any action that may insult one’s religion…when the allowance of “free” speech incites violence it should be banned…The film is repulsive to the sensibilities of Muslims and offends the religion of Islam in multiple ways; by denigrating the seriousness of Islam, our Prophet and the Muslims in general.  We believe that it would be in everyone’s interest to ban such actions from reoccurring.”  And then the final nail, “…We condemn the violence and feel that, in spite of the First Amendment of the U. S. Constitution, action may be necessary to pass such a bill or, at least, censure such actions in order to calm the current situation as well as prevent future re-occurrences.”  Almost rings of a threat, doesn’t it?  Paraphrased it could read, “If you want to prevent future violence you’d better punish those who blaspheme Muhammad, Islam, or Muslims.”

The thing that startled me is that they actually see an ally in this President.  They seem to know him better than the average voter.  This assault is not just happening here on the national level, but the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is working this same angle in the United Nations. (OIC represents the 56 Islamic states around the world and is seeking their own seat on the UN Security Council.)

Who is ISGKC? Well, that is the Kansas City chapter of ISNA (see above) and close affiliate of CAIR (also above), who is also under the umbrella organization of The Muslim Brotherhood, the major force in the ICM in North America.

I’m not finished yet…wait till we address education and other fronts in the Jihad on America.  Next time.

 





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.





Boston Globe vs Free Speech

16 02 2013

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

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

Boston Globe vs Free Speech

By Ilya Feoktistov and Charles Jacobs

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Grand Deception: Muslim Brotherhood in America

6 11 2012

I have written numerous articles here about the Islamic invasion of America and the major operative organization in that endeavor, the Muslim Brotherhood.  Furthermore I have published documents such as “The Strategic Goal of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America”, which was captured by FBI in Virginia and used as evidence in the “U. S Govt. vs Holy Land Foundation” trial of 2008, exposing numerous Islamic groups and organizationsin the USA as terrorist financiers around the world, and a few other articles that I have not authored.  The article below is one such piece from Investors Business Daily.

Steven Emerson

Steven Emerson is possibly the foremost authority on Islamic Jihad in America, and has been at the task of exposing the threat since his first documentary aired on PBS back in 1994.  His subsequent works such as American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us  have been a gold mine for “counter jihad”  patriots and curiosity seekers alike, who desire to learn more about the subject.  Emerson is the Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

This editorial was posted on Investors Business Daily website on November 1.  I have added the bold highlights.  H/T to IBD

Islamofascism: A new documentary exposes the Muslim Brotherhood as a “subversive menace” hiding in plain sight. Forget the Mideast; this group threatens us in our backyard.

In “The Grand Deception,” producer and award-winning journalist Steve Emerson spends 70 minutes documenting how the radical Brotherhood’s tentacles have reached deep inside the U.S. political system over the past few decades.

The footage Emerson obtained of these Islamists speaking candidly behind closed doors is stunning. They may mouth pleasantries to our face, but behind our backs they’re plotting our destruction.  Emerson showed them praying in Congress or breaking bread in the White House as “peace-loving moderates,” then revealed them just days later damning America and calling for violent jihad against us and our allies.

The treachery of Siraj Wahhaj, one of the Brotherhood’s celebrated imams, is most chilling.  At first, we see him humbly giving the invocation before Congress as the first Muslim clergyman to do so.  Within days of that prayer, he’s back at his Brooklyn mosque spewing venomous hatred about America and non-Muslims.

“You know what this country is? It’s a garbage can,” Wahhaj snarls in a sermon to his flock. “It’s filthy.” He prays America “crumbles” and is replaced by Islam. Then he calls for jihad. You see one clip, then the other, and the deceit and duplicity are just breathtaking.

We also see, in another scene, prominent Brotherhood leader Abdurahman Alamoudi — once a White House fixture and State Department goodwill ambassador — publicly denouncing terrorism. “We are against all forms of terrorism,” he claims. In another scene, we see the same man, now safely in front of a group of Muslims, exalting Hamas and Hezbollah.

Then he’s heard at a mosque exhorting the faithful to transform America into “a Muslim country, even if it takes 100 years.” Finally we overhear him grumbling in an FBI wiretap that al-Qaida didn’t kill enough Americans in the African embassy bombings.

Today, Alamoudi is behind bars for plotting terrorism. The U.S. learned he’d been secretly raising funds for al-Qaida only after he’d infiltrated the highest echelons of our government. And only after he’d created the Muslim chaplain corps for the Pentagon that’s still in use.

The documentary exposes a very clever — and insidious — enemy, more so than the communists. It operates, as one interviewed FBI agent describes it, a “tangled web” of front groups and mosques all hiding behind religion and the First Amendment, and all lavishly funded by the Saudi government.

Another agent interviewed on camera recounts how he saw a banner at an Islamic Society of North America event in the Midwest that read: “DEATH TO ISRAEL. DEATH TO AMERICA.” An ISNA official, Sayyid Syeed, is caught on tape saying, “Our job is to change the Constitution of America.”

Agents described the alphabet soup of Brotherhood fronts — including ISNA and CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) — as a “Trojan horse.” Indeed, these groups have been regular guests at the Obama White House, despite being named unindicted terrorist co-conspirators in 2008.

To eradicate this internal threat, a President Romney will have to clean house. He’d also be well-advised to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, then use RICO statutes to break up its subversive U.S. racket.

Nancy Pelosi Fundraising with HAMAS tied CAIR for Democrats

3 11 2012

You won’t be seeing this “undercover” photo on mainstream media outlets like the one of Romney at an exclusive high dollar fundraiser.  This Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee event cost a minimum of $5000 per person up to and over $30,000 per couple.  (View the invitation here)

Visible in the photo are Nancy with Nihad Awad (foreground), the co-Founder of the HAMAS benefactor Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  This Islamist and terrorist funding organization was named “unindicted co-conspirator” in the largest terrorist funding trial in American history.  Why are they still “unindicted”?  One Barak Hussein Obama became President of the United States and shut down the machine pursuing these terrorist affiliated groups in the United States.  In fact, by now, CAIR has been successful in re-defining the United States government policy in almost every facet of national security and policy.

They are quite effective at fundraising and funneling lots of money, so no surprise that CAIR plays a major part in campaign efforts by the Democratic National Committee and its subsidiaries.  It should also come as no surprise that these Islamist groups like CAIR, MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Council), Muslim Students Association (MSA) and a plethora of other Muslim Brotherhood front groups have taken such an active role in the election of Democrat candidates all across America.  I have previously written about the like-minded philosophies between these Islamist groups and the DNC in my article “Social Justice”  .  Take a look at it to understand why Muslims vote Democrat!

In this article on The Daily Caller, Awad is quoted in an Arabic Al-Jazeera TV interview while discussing the Democratic Platform accepted at the 2012 DNC Convention as, “an indication that the Democratic Party’s political platform with regard to the Middle East is developing.” Particularly concerning the Party policy towards Israel.

The Fundraiser held last May, is one of many held to raise money to oppose such candidates as Rep. Col. Allen West and Rep. Michelle Bachman. The DNC, with the help of Muslim Brotherhood funding, have pumped millions into trying to unseat these good conservative Congressmen/women who understand the threat to National Security that these Islamist organizations pose.   Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/02/pelosi-holds-secret-fundraiser-with-islamists-hamas-linked-groups/#ixzz2BBqQX9Dv

The Obama Campaign recently lost its Muslim Outreach coordinator, Mazen Asbahi, who resigned under the cloud of ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Not to worry though, as he is still working for the Obama camp and appeared at an American Muslim Democratic Caucus  (AMDC)luncheon to verify that he is still “110% ” behind Obama and is still actively serving in Muslim Outreach for the campaign.  The AMDC issued a press release saying the DNC has given its blessing to the Caucus which is devoted to bringing the Islamic community into political activism.  [Source: Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report]

“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…





Khilafah Conference 2012 in Chicago

7 06 2012

UPDATE: According to this article on the Daily Herald the Khilafah Conference was moved at the last minute.  After many calls and controversy, the “Meadows Club” which was to host the event, backed out.  The conference will now be held in Hickory Hills.  I find it extraordinary that Hizb ut-Tahrir is not on the Secretary of State’s list of  foreign terrorist organizations in light of the information I quoted below that Morocco has banned it as a “saboteur organization”.—Original article below:

In a previous article entitled “New Khilafah”  I explained how Islam is moving toward its “One World Government”,  and some history on the last Caliphate.  The Muslim Brotherhood was established in 1928 to restore that institution, and in 1953 another organization, Hizb ut-Tahrir was begun with that same objective.  We saw the “Arab Spring” unfold last year and the resulting move to re-establishing of Sharia in those formerly authoritarian or dictatorial governments is under way.  The move to unite the Islamic nation states continues to progress, and with Israel as the common nemesis, the fuel of hatred will not cease to advance the movement.  The Muslim Brotherhood continues to consolidate power in these areas, and has been following its planned strategy of “Culture Jihad” throughout the West, particularly in the United States. This document, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the Strategic Goal for the Group [MB] in North America”  which defines this plan was seized by the FBI from a Virginia mosque and entered in as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial of 2008.  The memorandum outlines a “settlement” strategy which is intended to “eliminate and destroy the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands, and by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated…” (p.7).

Hizb ut-Tahrir (Party of Liberation)  has gone so far as to criticize the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party in Egypt, “The Freedom and Justice Party”,  for being too moderate in the process in Egypt.  That’s a remarkable critique considering the calls from Egypt’s Brotherhood to void the peace treaty with Israel.

Hizb ut-Tahrir has been banned as a “saboteur group” in Morocco, and has gained new attention there just this week.  The following is an excerpt from Magharebia  a North African news website:

Hizb ut-Tahrir is a banned international Islamic party advocating the change of a “corrupt” society and turning it into an Islamic society. The party also embraces the Islamic call and jihad in hopes of realising the dream of a caliphate and the establishment of an Islamic state governed by the principle of halal and haram according to party supporters’ understanding.

Richid Elmounasafi, an analyst specialised in terrorism-related criminology, told Magharebia that “in its principles and major goals, Hizb ut-Tahrir is similar to many of the cells that were previously dismantled, such as the Ansar al-Mehdi cell led by Sheikh Hassan Khattab which was dismantled in August 2006 and which had the major goal of undermining the existing regime to establish the Islamic caliphate state.”

Nonetheless, Hizb ut-Tahrir will hold its 2012 America Khilafah Conference just outside Chicago at Rolling Meadows, IL on June 17th.  You can view their promotional trailer below.  Happy Father’s Day, America.  H/T Act! for America

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

6 05 2012

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

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

 

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

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





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

1 05 2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Erin Mersino is the TMLC attorney handling the case.

More on Plaintiffs

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

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

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

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

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





Sharia Law: What is it?

1 02 2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ICNA Billboard Kansas City, KS

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

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

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

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






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…





Islamic Reformation

18 03 2011

Islam will never have a reformation

There has been lots of talk recently focused on the “Reformation” that Islam is currently experiencing. There are a handful of good people, Muslims, like Dr. Zudhi Jassar of Phoenix who is working tirelessly to bring a liberal view of Islam to life; and Ali Eteraz, who’s articles in the UK Guardian discuss the need to form a ‘Muslim Left’ which denies the legitimacy of theocratic governments.

However, these voices are lost in the cacophony of rhetoric from pro-Islamist groups such as CAIR, MAS, MSA, MPAC, ISNA, ICNA and the like. Then there is dawa, or “Islamic colonialism” being practiced and promoted far and wide by the “Turkish Delegation” through groups like the Turquoise Council of American Eurasians (TCAE), The Gulen Institute, and the Raindrop Turkish Houses which host countless receptions, breakfasts, socials, and trips to Turkey for public officials including everyone from the local firehouse, to city councils and mayors, to state legislators. These latter lobbyists forge relationships that serve to influence support and introduction of legislation particularly friendly to Islam.

Many self ascribed “experts” and “intellectuals” and bleeding heart “moderates” in American politics and academia have declared that Islam is struggling to emerge through a “Reformation” of the religion that will purify it and allow it to shed it’s violent and oppressive political nature, keeping intact those virtuous qualities of peace and benevolence with those who do not share the same beliefs. Usually they cite the Christian Reformation as the model for such a phenomena.

These pundits and commentators obviously have no grasp of religion of any kind, never mind the complex system we call Islam.

Christian Reformation

Firstly, I want to clarify that the Christian Reformation wasn’t about purifying or modernizing a “religion” or “faith”. The basis of the Christian faith, the Holy Bible, written by forty different inspired people over a period spanning 1500 years, was left intact and unchanged (although translated into several languages, which had been previously forbidden by Rome) throughout the process of the Reformation. The movement of “Reform” was a political move against the Papal authority of an organized Church over the whole of “Christendom”, which was a result unification of church and state by Constantine in 325 AD. There was nothing Biblical about this political move by the Emperor of Rome. Constantine unified church and state in order to preserve the Empire after Rome had failed to stamp out Christianity for 200 years. In fact, Jesus Himself actually taught separation of church and state when He was asked if the Jews should pay taxes to the Romans. His answer was “Whose image is on this coin? (Caesar’s) So then give to Caesar that which is Caesar’s and give to God that which is God’s.” (Of course the image of God is in mankind.)

The Reformation was not about changing the fundamentals of the Bible. It was a political movement. Thus, the “Protesting” resulted in “Protestants” rejecting the authority of the Papacy. [Indeed it was a bit more complex, but in a nutshell this was the Christian Reformation.] While there were some liturgical and practical changes made, the Bible was still the foundational document delineating the teachings of the founder, that being Jesus Christ, the perfect model for the aspiring Christian. The “fundamentals” remain yet today.

The glaring problem for “Islamic Reformation” is this: The fundamentals are flawed. Not only the self proclaimed prophet Muhammad, but the Koran itself is rife with inconsistencies. But the inconsistencies are not even the main problem. (These may be understood when considering the Islamic principle of “Abrogation”. That is to say if there are two differing instructions on the same matter, the latter verse abrogates the former.)

The consistent themes of the Koran and Hadith carried by the enforcement of Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia Law) through an over arching political ideology are so intertwined they can never be separated. To live the fundamentals of Islam is to practice “Islamization” on a global scale because this is what Islam demands. There can be no separation of religion and state because the “religion’s” legal system must run the state, and will if Islam is allowed to run its natural course to fruition.

Islam is not simply a belief or a religion.

This has been the mistake of the last 50 years, especially here in America as well as Western Europe. To ascribe Islam as a religion gives it a free rein to infiltrate and affect not only culture, but politics and jurisprudence in a manner we would never allow another contradictory ideology or legal system.

Islam is a socio-political ideology with a religious aspect. In those nations or societies where Islam reigns supreme, competing religions or political movements are not only discouraged but forbidden. Just watch the news.

In order for a reformation to occur within Islam, first the Koran has to be open to critique and debate; It is not. Secondly, Muhammad must be availed to critique and scrutiny; He is not. Finally, Islam itself must be open to debate and self examination; It is not. Why? Because Allah, through his messenger Jibril, gave his ‘perfect Koran’ to his ‘perfect Prophet’. It is not open for doubt or debate; he reminds the reader about 200 times, “Do not doubt this Koran”. To change the founding document would be sacrilege and no doubt lead to “Fitna”, or civil war within the Muslim Ummah, the same way the standardizing the Koran did in the mid 7th Century. We have all seen the uproar caused by those who dare to criticize or characterize Muhammad.

This is the reason ‘Reform’ will never happen in Islam. If you take away the oppressive demand for submission; you have no Islam. If you rewrite the Koran to eliminate the Jihad, the racist element, the directives for dominating your women, the demand for world dominance of Allah’s perfect religion, then you have no Islam. If you eliminate the passages of Koran and Hadith regulating slavery, the supremacy of Muslims in society, and the directives to institute Islamic Law for the good of humanity, then you have no Islam.

Everyone knows that water consists of two hydrogen molecules and one oxygen. If you separate one hydrogen molecule from water, you no longer have water.

I must say I respect Dr. Jasser in his honorable intentions to separate the religion from the politics of Islam. But if you could do that, which you cannot, then you have no Islam. The very word “Islam” means “Submission”. This submission is not simply for the pious Muslim, but the Muslim is charged with the responsibility to advance the code of Islam into the culture or society until Islam reigns supreme and everyone, including non-Muslims, are subjugated under Sharia. Those Muslims who refuse this task, are shamed by the fundamentalists, who accuse them of “shirking” their responsibility. (“Shirk” is to disobey Allah)

Islam has already experienced its “Reformation”

Ibn Taymiyyah, 1268-1321, began a call to Muslims back to the fundamentals of Islam to follow more closely the teachings of Koran and Hadith. This was then refreshed and further advanced in the 18th Century by a student of Taymiyyah named Abd al Wahhab . Wahhab began to revive fundamentalist Islamic practices by first leveling the shrine at the grave of Zayd Khattab, the brother of the Caliph Omar. Wahhab contended it had become an object of idolatry. He then ordered the stoning of an adulteress, a practice which had become rare in the region. This kind of radical teaching brought some life threatening attention to Wahhab who left and settled in a village occupied by Muhammad Ibn Saud in 1740. Saud and Wahhab became inseparable and their heirs expanded their holdings by both dawa and military campaigns, gaining control of the modern day Arabian Kingdom. Their legacy continues today in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia where Wahhabism is both protected and funded throughout the globe. Wahhabism is the foremost source of radical Islamic fundamentalism and has influenced more or less nearly every other school of Islamic theology, particularly in Sunni Islam, which accounts for over 80% of Islam.

Hassan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood and Seyyid Qutb, both Egyptians, carried on the torch of fundamentalism throughout Sunni Islam by their writings and leadership from the 1920’s until Qutb’s execution in 1965 for sedition against the government of Egypt. This influence is more alive today than ever before, and on a global scale. The push is on for Islam to dominate the globe in this century, bringing the entire world into “submission to the religion of Allah” and all governments using the Sharia.

Such is the directive of Islam. Not to convert everyone to Muslim; but to subject everyone to Sharia. Only then can there be peace in the world.

Good Luck Dr. Jasser!
