Defining the Enemy: Why the United States Government Can Not Win the “War on Terror”

7 09 2014

ontherise“… If you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.” –Sun Tzu, The Art of War

A government, nation, or an individual for that matter, who pours their own definition into terms or words is doomed to failure, confusion and isolation in a world where communication is imperative for success on any level. A person cannot say “I have no enemy” and walk peacefully down a path lined with a mob who seeks his death, expecting a leisurely stroll. The Jews learned long ago, when someone says they’re going to kill you, believe them. Likewise, a government cannot long ignore an enemy who has declared war upon that nation, no matter how distant that enemy may seem.

A nation, government, or individual who refuses to recognize an existential threat is either naive, insane, or suicidal. However, this is exactly what the United States Government has been doing for over ten years. Even as far back as 9/11/2001, US government officials and their willing accomplices in the media, have gone out of their way to refuse mention of the enemy that struck us on that fateful day.

Even after 13 years of war operations, in Afghanistan the US has lost 2344 military personnel, and 4486 in Iraq to an undefined enemy. Many of these casualties were the result of “Rules of Engagement” (ROE) which tie the hands of our brave American service members, and resulted in the single largest loss of Special Operations Forces in American military history, the shoot down of Extortion 17, August 6th, 2011, in the Tangi Valley. 30 crew and Spec Ops personnel were on board including 17 Navy SEALS. The father of one of those men, Billy Vaughn wrote “Betrayed”, an expose’ on how faulty ROE’s (which includes all missions approved by Afghan military commanders), among other bad decisions resulted in the tragedy that cost his son Aaron’s team their lives. I highly recommend this book.

We continue to fail to recognize the true enemy; the ideology that not only threatens America, but the rest of Western Civilization. This ideology is diametrically opposed to the values and freedoms that Americans hold dear. It is incompatible with our United States Constitution, nevertheless our government continues to embrace this ideology, yes, even promote it within our own borders.

“The War on Terror”

-President George W. Bush coined that phrase and was reprimanded by followers of this enemy ideology for referring to our military combat operations going into Afghanistan as “this crusade, this war on terror, is going to take a while.” in an unscripted Bush ICWDC AwadCAIR Sept17 statement 5 days after 9-11. The Council on American-Islamic Relations did not like that word “crusade”, and Mr. Bush apologized and never used it again. He also became an apologist for Islam, referring to it as “a peaceful religion” the very next day at the Islamic Center of Washington DC, while CAIR co-founder Nihad Awad looked over the left shoulder of the President. Yes, I will say it. Islam is the enemy of America, Israel, and the entire Western Society as well as all the world!

I am sick to death of everyone from the media, to government officials, to pulpits in America avoiding this controversial statement. Islam has declared war upon all nations, tribes, cultures and governments that do not submit to Islamic leadership and government. This war was declared in the 7th Century as the Islamic hoards swept across Northern Africa up into Spain, and conquering Persia, India, and Afghanistan pressing up into Eastern Europe. It has never been ended.

As you can see in my previous post, the video of the History of Jihad, Islam has been on the offensive pretty much non-stop since Muhammad conquered Mecca in 630 AD. In fact, just about every month or two now, we hear of a new jihad group declaring war on Israel and America. Islam is the arch-enemy of Judaism and Christianity. It is the enemy of paganism, atheism, and Zoroastrianism (think Yezidi people trapped on the mountain). It has conquered, murdered, subjugated, and oppressed people of all other cultures and religions for 14 Centuries. It is relentless, it is cunning. Islam is persistent. Islam is unforgiving. Islam is patient…very patient. But listen, Islam is not “Terror”, as in “the war on terror”. To say “War on Terror” is like saying “War on Blitzkrieg”. Blitzkrieg (blitz) was a tactic employed by the Nazi’s as they rolled through Europe, speedily conquering neighboring states. To declare “war on Terror” would be like Eisenhower deciding to fight only those Nazi forces who are using blitzkrieg to gain control of its victims. Or perhaps deciding that the Allies would only kill the SS troopers and avoid fighting the regular Wehrmacht, after all they were mostly draftees, and didn’t really have a choice in their situation. Utter foolishness! Does anyone remember Dresden, Berlin, Hamburg? But wars were simpler then. The enemy was anyone who aided and abetted, or participated in, the war fighting or subversive capabilities of those who engaged in activities with malice towards the United States of America and/or threatened the safety/security of American citizens and/or our allies.

“Terror” is a tactic

It is a tactic used by an enemy to render its opposition “terrified” and confused, disorganized and willing to “submit” (the very definition of “Islam”) to be ruled by Islam. Islam has learned that Western secular government officials and media drones don’t seriously hold any religious values, beliefs or practices. They understand that Europe and America have been “de-educating” their children for about 3 generations now, replacing the Judeo-Christian ethos with “Pluralism” and “Multiculturalism”. (Pluralism= All beliefs, faiths, ideologies are of equal value; Multiculturalism= No culture is superior and diversity is the modern goal for perfect cultural balance) Of course, Islam is correct in its assessment of the state of Western Culture. We have set ourselves up to be conquered. We are so willing to embrace an ideology/religion that is totally foreign to the American ideal, and so quick to refuse the true roots of everything that made America the strongest, most benevolent, peace-loving country in world history, our Judeo/Christian heritage.

Our government has been influenced in the highest offices by Islamic groups such as CAIR (HAMAS’s American PR organization), Muslim American Society, Muslim Public Affairs Council, Islamic Circle of North America, Islamic Society of America, and the list goes on. These groups are all known Muslim Brotherhood affiliates. The Muslim Brotherhood has been classified as a terrorist organization by Egypt, Israel, and Saudi Arabia. If you haven’t read the “Explanatory Memorandum” that outlines how the Brotherhood plans to take the United States from within, please, by all means click here to read it! (The English translation begins halfway through the document) The Muslim Brotherhood also is known for its desire to re-establish the Caliphate, or “Khilafah”, the Islamic State. This is a common objective among Muslim organizations world wide, not just those “jihad” “terrorist” organizations like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Taliban, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, Haqqani, Al Nusra, Islamic Jihad, Abu Sayyaf, PLO, HAMAS, Hezbollah, etc, etc, ad nauseam.

Do you get the picture? For every Muslim apologist in the West who says that Islam is a peaceful religion there are many more who either actively engage in jihad, support it financially (this is where a portion of zaqat alms goes), or know that jihad is a legitimate tenet of Islam and to deny it’s purpose of “warring against non-Muslims…to establish the religion”** of Islam, is to deny Islam itself!! (**Umdat al Salik, Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law [Sharia], o9.0, p. 599).

The Caliphate is that “Islamic State” that I wrote about in 2011 under the title “New Khilafah”. You can visit that article to get a bit of history about the Caliphate and why it is important to Muslims. So you see, ISIS, now known as “Islamic State” has simply put feet to the movement to establish the Caliphate, which has been the goal of Islam since the beginning, and was temporarily suspended right after WW1. ISIS is only one of a myriad of groups, here-to-fore listed, which all hold the same ideology: Islam must rule the world. Now where do you suppose all these freak extremist terrorist groups get their ideology? Well, from the same place that those “peaceful” Islamic supremicist and friendly civic/social groups (CAIR, MPAC, MSA, MAS, ICNA, ISNA, etc.) get theirs… Al Quran (Koran)!! Every one of these groups is made in Islam! Check out this Clarion Project article on Mohamed Elibiary, a Muslim Brotherhood supporter who was appointed to the Dept of Homeland Security Advisory Board by the Obama Administration. Elibiary tweeted that “The Caliphate is inevitable” and touted it as an EU version of an Islamic Union of States.

I am going to quote for you the exact Koranic verses as they appear in the section of “The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law” that are given as justification for jihad to establish the religion of Islam:

(1) “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2:216) (2) “Slay them wherever you find themn” (Koran 4:89) (3) “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9:36) [Umdat al-Salik, Reliance of the Traveler, p. 599]

Then from the section under the heading “Objectives of Jihad” the same manual goes on to specify what the role of the “Caliph” is:

o.9.8 “The Caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Mulim poll tax (jizya…)-which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remainging in their ancestral religions) and the war continues until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax. And from o.9.9 “The caliph fights all other peoples until they becom Muslim…”

President Obama and the rest of the stooges may continue to swear that ISIS is an “extremist group” that “does not represent any religion” or speak for any faith, and are not properly following Islamic teachings. Well, both the jihadis and the silent Muslims all around the world disagree with you, sir. These are undeniable doctrines inherent in the Islamic religion/ideology. They are indisputable in their fundamental influence in the entire religion of Islam. Now, I would not say that every Muslim wants ISIS to rule the world, nor would I say that every Muslim is an “Islamist” (one who seeks to propagate the religion by whatever means, peaceful or otherwise. A Muslim who is not an Islamist is in danger of apostacy by the standards of Koran and the Sharia). But every “Islamist” does want Islam to rule the world. And while not every Islamist is a violent Jihadi terrorist, they do share the common objective of Khalifah. And those organizations I listed earlier in this article, both the Jihadi groups and the political/social groups all share that common objective, just as indicated by the Elibiary quote. “The War on Terror” cannot be won. One could just as well declare “war on child abuse” or “war on poverty” (oh, wait, we tried that one-failed), or “war on drugs” (another failed). As long as evil exists in the heart of Man, man will continue to succomb to evil. It is his natural state. Only Jesus Christ can change the heart of man.

“Brother Rachid” is a former Muslim from Morocco who had his heart changed by Christ. He has a message for President Barak Hussein Obama. Please watch.

Of Mosques and Men: Flight 93 Memorial Mosque

27 08 2010

Flight 93 Memorial Mosque

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am feeling ill…

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

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





Turkish Connection I

24 04 2010

Note: This will be too lengthy a study to develop in one post, so I will break it up a bit into more digestible portions. This is the first in a three part series entitled “Turkish Connection”. When finished with this post be sure to read II and III.

Will Turkey Replace Israel as America’s Chief Ally in the Middle East?

The evidence confirming that possibility is becoming too great to ignore and I intend to expound upon it from a couple of different approaches.

After several months of hinting to Israel that the newest American administration may not be so supportive of the Jewish State, recent weeks have clarified that point with stark contrast to previous administrations going all the way back to Harry Truman and the declaration of Israel’s independence in 1948.

President Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, along with Joe Biden, James Baker and others in the Cabinet, have made it clear that Israel can no longer depend on the backing of the US Government.

The Left in the United States has long been known for its anti-Israel sentiment, even to the point of parroting “Palestinian” propaganda demonizing the Israeli response to repeated terrorist attacks upon civilians in schools, café’s , buses, and nightclubs not to mention random “potshots” by Palestinian rockets numbering in the thousands before Israel finally responded. The standard sentiment in the media is ‘Jews are fair game but Israel is not allowed to respond’.  The Jewish State of Israel has become the “redheaded stepchild” of the West, and world leaders are loathe to utter a sincere sympathetic statement or any such moral support on her behalf.

The “Palestinian problem” is now Israel’s to solve unilaterally.  The problem is not Israel’s handling of the situation. Nothing she does will be acceptable. The problem is this.  Israel exists.

This sentiment is exhibited by most of Europe, South America, Africa, and all of Islam. Never mind the historical fact that the “Palestinians” were mostly Jordanian or Egyptian citizens prior to the invasion of Israel by five surrounding Arab states the day after she proclaimed independence. The UN Partition Plan would have forged two states; one Jewish, the other Arab. The Jews agreed. The Arabs did not and vowed to “drive the Jews into the Sea.” The only real change is where the lines are, and that only the result of Israel’s own security provisions.

That Partition Plan of 1947 was the result of much discussion, planning and compromise which characterized the expiration of the British Mandate issued by The League of Nations back in 1922 after the breakup of the 600 year old Ottoman Empire at the end of World War One. The Mandate charged Britain with governance of the territories from the Mediterenean Sea to Mesopotamia which included Palestine, Transjordan, and modern Iraq. It also reinforced the Balfour Declaration of 1917 citing Palestine or a portion thereof to become recognized as a future Jewish State.  By the end of WW2 the Jews were more than glad to relocate to their ancient homeland of King David where Israel and Judah had prospered two millennia prior. The Jewish Diaspora expired.

The Ottoman Empire had been the seat of the Islamic Caliphate for 400 years. After the Ottoman’s (Sunni Muslim) conquered the Fatimid Dynasty (Shia Muslim) beginning in the 14th century and reaching its own zenith in the 16th century, Sunni Islam became the dominant school of theology, pushing Shiism into small pockets and containing it to Persia (Iran) where it continues to be dominant. The Ottoman Empire, allied with Germany, came to a close after the end of World War 1 when Great Britain was successful in driving the Turks from Palestine, Transjordan, Syria and most of the Arabian Penninsula., with the help of the Arab tribes who were loosely unified by Sir Thomas Edward Lawrence.

With the demise of the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish Revolution, a new Republic of Turkey was established and under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the Caliphate was abolished and a new secularized government began to develop a prosperous economic and political player on the world stage.  Turkey managed to remain neutral during most of WW2, finally joining the Allies in 1945.  The new Eurasian country became a strategic ally to the United States and Europe during the Cold War and has maintained good relations with the West for the most part since its inception.

Many have extolled the success of Turkey as a model for the Islamic world to emulate, successfully balancing an Islamic culture with a modern secularized government. It has, thus far, been the most Westernized Islamic country in the region.

However, a recent movement is afoot in Turkey to Islamize the government. This is not, for the most part, a radical militant movement such as Al-Qaida or Hamas, but a more subtle movement that is better served by maintaining a peaceful appearance and a smile, extending the hand of friendship and unity while educating the opponent and his children. This movement has a leader who has opposed a secular government in Turkey since the 1960’s and was arrested by the Turkish authorities in ’71 for “clandestine religious activities” after which he was harassed occasionally. He has met with Pope John Paul II, Greek Orthodox and other Christian leaders, as well as Jewish Rabbi’s in an effort to moderate, and “build bridges” between Islam and the West.

Fethullah Gulen, a Sunni Imam, has become a major figure in the United States since his ‘migration’ here in 1998, reportedly to seek treatment for diabetes. According to Rachel Sharon-Krespin writing for Middle East Quarterly, his “absence also enabled Gülen to escape questioning on his indictment in 2000 for allegedly promoting insurrection in Turkey in a series of secretly-recorded sermons.”  It is also reported that although he has not lived in Turkey for the past 12 years, he has had tremendous influence there to the point of “Islamizing” the Turkish government, so much so that all government employees are Muslim. So much for secular government in Turkey…More on that…

(Continued on next post)
