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 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.

“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).

Image credit: Wikipedia

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

Kansas Governor signs American Laws for American Courts Bill

26 05 2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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





Wafa Sultan, Ex-Muslima debates Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad

21 05 2012

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

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





Kansas Passes American Laws for American Courts!

12 05 2012

Over two years ago I was honored to become part of the team to present ALAC to the Kansas Legislature.  It has been a long hard battle, and my first real inside look at how the political process works. Oh, I have pretty much always been active and interested, but never on such a personal and crucial level.  It has been a roller coaster ride that I will not soon forget and unless you’ve actually been involved close up, there is no way to understand it, let alone explain it!  Human nature is vividly revealed in this arena, and character is exposed for all to see!  I was proud of the team I have been involved with and they have become very close and dear to my heart; all brothers and sisters in Christ, and all men and women of high character and humility.

I still am reeling from the shock that the Kansas Senate passed ALAC,  33-3!!

There were more opposing speeches given than opposing votes!  Vicious lies were spewed about the contents and intents of SB 79 during debate by Senate Committee Leaders. At least 4 Senate Leaders testified against the bill;  one Senator changing  his mind from supporting in Committee to opposing, along with the Senate Judiciary Chair,  who still doesn’t even know why he signed on in Committee!! I Do!!
Great support was given by many Senators, and when the dust settled 33 had voted for and 3 against. This in a Senate Chamber that has been run by liberal Republican leadership and have basically smacked down nearly every conservative legislation that has appeared in its chambers.  Most of these bills were going down by narrow margins of 3 to 6 votes.
On Wednesday, we had such a huge setback! The brother of a Muslim woman in Wichita (court case pending) had asked for a press Conference with the Center for Security Policy, who were the chief engineers of ALAC on the national level.  We held a press conference in Topeka and this guy backed out, and essentially the wheels fell off our wagon.  I really expected the press to crucify us but it wasn’t as bad as I anticipated. Amid the confusion of all the other fights and melee in the Capital that day, our deal was not so big.
One of our team members had made a comment Wednesday after our disaster that Jesus did not turn the water into wine until they had run out of wine.  Well said my friend!  We were totally out of the fight when He moved and showed us all!  We had to be totally removed from having any part in what God was about to do!  He chose one young faithful Senator to accomplish the impossible, and it was incredible to behold the events as they unfolded. For over an hour debate ensued, and by the end of the second hour the vote was tallied.  Everyone was asking each other if those numbers where correct. What just happened? Is this for real? How can that be? God just revived a bill which had died 3 times in the past year!
This event could very well be the dynamite that breaks the logjam in the Kansas Legislature.  This event is already a defining moment in the coming elections! It may be the defining moment in the future of Kansas!
If you know anything about the history of the United States, you know Kansas has played a major part in events that have shaken the Nation to its very core.  From the Kansas-Nebraska Act which sparked the Civil War, to Brown v Board of Education, Kansas has a long history at the tip of the spear of moral and spiritual battles in our country.  For over 7 years prior to the Civil War, there were buckets of blood soaking into Kansas soil while struggling to establish the  American ideal of  “All men equal under the Law” that had been written into the Constitution.  Kansas motto is “Ad Astra Per Aspra”, Latin for “To the Stars through Difficulty”.  She wanted to come into that field of blue on the American Flag, a Free State where all men are considered equal under protection of the law of the Land.
American Laws for American Courts underscores that ideal. It is the reinforcing of the promises of government to guard and protect the individual rights and freedoms as granted under the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Kansas regardless of country or culture of origin, race, or religion.  It gives statutory direction to the Courts, which at times, without such laws to refer to, may use arbitrary means to reach a decision.
A reporter asked me if I didn’t think it redundant to pass a law that does the same thing as the Constitution?  Considering that many Judges, lawyers, and citizens in general do not read, abide by, understand, or even think about the Constitution anymore…my answer?
“Yes.”
UPDATE:  The HAMAS linked CAIR (Council for American Islamic Relations), a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate, has mounted its expected attack on Kansas.  They have mounted a national campaign for Muslims to contact Governor Sam Brownback and tell him not to sign the bill. CAIR’s call to action lambasts Kansas Legislature, and Kansas citizens, as “Islamophobic, Muslim hating bigots, and that this law will forbid free exercise of Islamic religious beliefs.
Well, if your free exercise of your religious beliefs goes contrary to the Constitution, and existing Kansas and American Law, then I suppose that would apply.  Things like polygamy, slavery, inequity in legal status, stoning, suppression of the rights of other individuals (Muslim or non-Muslim), yes, these things are contrary to our laws.  It’s sort of like driving the wrong way on a one way street.  It’s against the law, no matter who you are, or why you do it!
If your religious beliefs lead you to action that is legal under American or Kansas Law, such as your choice of diet, abstaining from alcohol or tobacco, pray 5 times a day (not blocking traffic), adhere to a dress code,  or any other religious expression which complies with the law,  knock yourself out!
