Doctrinal Criminal Behavior: Conflating Terrorism with Jihad

The difference between terrorism and jihad is that terrorism is an act of defiance, while jihad is a cultural, legal and religious act of devotion. Terrorism has few, if any, rules governing purpose and conduct, whereas jihad, as a separate legal theory is replete with limits and rules of engagement. Acts of violence not grounded in Islamic law (sharia) are not jihad.

Islamic based crime is usually discussed in Western criminal justice manuals, not through the lens of doctrine and values. Islamic doctrinal sources are absent from criminal justice, terrorism, and counter terrorism bibliographies. Western theories of crime are being applied to Islamic behavior. A key indicator linking behavior to doctrinal belief are the words uttered by the assailant during an assault, but the words are not being evaluated in terms of the originating doctrine. Words indicate motive and, in the case of cross-civilizational attacks, can highlight the cultural doctrinal basis for the attack.

A neglected field of criminal justice-the study of religion for its crime- inducing effects suggests that religion be examined objectively in terms of how it induces crime and what doctrinal tools in sharia (Islamic law) are used to act out criminal behavior.

Shallow study of the issue of jihad limits inquiry to modern on line text and magazines, and only rarely venturing into the core texts: the Quran, Hadith, Sira of Mohammad or the judicial texts where doctrine is detailed.

Religion is not important for most Western Scholars, so they assume this is the case for others also. Religion is a topic that makes most Western writers uncomfortable: not only do they not understand the Islamic religion, but dwelling too much on faith based ideology risks accusations of bigotry. So they negate faith based ideology as a casual subject. Scholars do not want to denigrate Islam thus avoiding casual writings about the religion.

Most criminal justice, terrorism, and counter terrorism writers fail to list any Islamic doctrinal texts with the exception of the Quran. See literature gap attached. Law enforcement in America cannot continue to ignore the “Death to America” chants of the Islamic culture in Dearborn, Michigan.

The “Death to America” Crowd

We’ve all witnessed the recent drama of the pro-Palestinian, anti-Jewish protests on college campuses. A recent discovery at one of the protests speaks volumes about the whole movement.

In the tents of the anti-Israel, pro-Hamas protesters at NYU, the police who cleared out their den of dissent uncovered signs which said, “Death to Israel! Death to America!”

Surprise. Surprise.

People who care about America’s godly roots as a nation—yes, our Judeo-Christian roots—know how principles revealed in the Bible are linked to the American experiment in self-liberty under God.

In contrast to our nation’s founding are sentiments held by many young Americans today: “Death to Israel and Death to America.”

There is a sense in which Jews and Christians are tied together for freedom’s sake both in America and in the country of Israel.

I’ve interviewed Rabbi Daniel Lapin a few times for Christian television. He is the founder and head of the American Alliance of Jews and Christians.

He once told me, “No country in the last two thousand years has provided the same haven of tranquility and prosperity for Jews as had the United States of America. And, this is not in spite of Americans being Christian; it is because of it. You might say that America’s Bible belt is the Jewish community’s safety belt.”

And he added: “Jews need to understand that our safety and security in the United States is dependent upon the health and vitality of American Christianity.”

Therefore, says the rabbi, the very safety of Jews (and others) is put at risk when the Christian faith is undermined in America. That is certainly borne out more and more in the protests and the rise of anti-Semitic violence we see today.

Recently, as the executive director of Providence Forum, I had the privilege to participate in our ministry’s Faith and Freedom Tour in Philadelphia. Dr. Peter Lillback, the founder of Providence Forum, was our tour guide. Providence Forum is now a part of Coral Ridge Ministries, headed up by Dr. Robert J. Pacienza, our host for this memorable weekend.

At one of our stops, Dr. Lillback highlighted the old synagogue there. Because of the Christian attitude of that city’s founder, the Quaker minister and lawyer William Penn, people (including Jews) would be free to practice their religion in his settlement without harassment. A rarity in that day.

As Dr. Lillback noted in one of our videos how Penn cared deeply about conscience rights, and it showed in the colony and the city he created in America: “Philadelphia, named from the Bible, brotherly love, established on the Golden Rule, freedom of conscience to each other. That becomes, then, the model of America. When Thomas Jefferson and George Washington look at Philadelphia, they say that place has succeeded far better than Virginia that imposes religion on others. Their view of conscience, their view of freedom is extraordinary.”

One of the Jews who came to Philadelphia almost a century after Penn helped the American cause in pivotal ways, for which he should be remembered. Haym Salomon was a very successful Jewish investor, who fled Europe because of anti-Semitic persecution.

In his 2022 book, Rediscovering America: How the National Holidays Tell an Amazing Story About Who We Are, Scott Powell, a senior fellow with the Discovery Institute, writes: “Washington and the Continental Army were in fact perpetually short of financial resources. Fortunately, even before the Revolutionary War started there was a young Jewish lover of liberty being raised up, Haym Salomon.”

Thankfully, Scott Powell was able to attend our tour and to provide some information about Salomon, a man to whom America owes a debt of gratitude. Powell notes that Salomon was not only savvy and successful as a financier, but he had an “impeccable reputation of integrity.”  That was probably a key element of his success.

Powell notes in his book: “After the war, financial records sum up that Haym Salomon’s fundraising and personal lending provided over $650,000 [which would translate to a staggering amount of money in today’s dollars]…for Washington and the war effort.”

One interesting footnote about Haym Salomon is that the terrific actor Claude Rains played him in a short dramatic film made in 1939—entitled, “Sons of Liberty”—by the eminent Casablanca director Michael Curtiz.

The film may not hold up well today, but the man—Haym Salomon—deserves to be remembered by whole new generations of Americans.

America was built by the sacrifices of many Christians and some of their Jewish friends, like Haym Salomon, a man that modern Americans have almost completely forgotten.

So, we fast forward to today, and we see modern nihilist protesters with mottos like “Death to Israel! Death to America!” Truly, our nation is overripe in the need for a genuine spiritual revival.

Note also that the “Palestinian” tells the Israel: “You are cursed in the Qur’an anyway.” Indeed. See Qur’an 9:30.

He also says “We love death the way you love life.” This is just another statement of the Islamic jihadists’ oft-repeated desire for death. A Muslim child preacher taunted those he has been taught to hate most: “Oh Zionists, we love death for the sake of Allah, just as much as you love life for the sake of Satan.” Jihad mass murderer Mohamed Merah said that he “loved death more than they loved life.” Nigerian jihadist Abubakar Shekau said: “I’m even longing for death, you vagabond.”

Ayman al-Zawahiri’s wife advised Muslim women: “I advise you to raise your children in the cult of jihad and martyrdom and to instil in them a love for religion and death.” And as one jihadist put it, “We love death. You love your life!” And another: “The Americans love Pepsi-Cola, we love death.” That was from Afghan jihadist Maulana Inyadullah.

Of course, this idea comes from the Qur’an itself: “Say, O you who are Jews, if you claim that you are favored of Allah apart from mankind, then long for death if you are truthful.” — Qur’an 62:6

The Washington ‘Blob’ Seems Ready To Wreck The Republic To Save Themselves

A damn insightful, well written article follows — highly recommend reading.

The followers of the globalist, Marxist, godless left are definitely headed towards enslaving themselves and they’re too stupid to realize it.


The Washington ‘Blob’ Seems “Ready To Wreck The Republic To Save Themselves” | ZeroHedge

Prisoners of Themselves

“Ok, let’s be clear. If the intelligence community led by the CIA is not the ‘deep state’, what is?” — Jeffrey Tucker

You realize, don’t you, that the gross misconduct of government officials from RussiaGate on down to the courtroom of Judge Juan Merchan has amounted to one continuous operation against the American people?

If it were ever honestly adjudicated, many hundreds of them might go to prison, or worse.

Each successive seditious and treasonous action they attempt against their arch-nemesis, Mr. Trump, only compounds their criminal liability — the Steele Dossier, CIA agent Eric Ciaramella’s 2019 impeachment prank, the Covid-19 caper, the George Floyd-BLM hustle, the 2020 election hijinks, the J-6 op and the House J-6 Committee conjured up to spin it, the present battery of farcical court cases — and yet the Golden Golem of Greatness not only remains defiantly at large, but seems to amass ever more electoral mojo.

The epic failure of these mighty efforts, and the humiliation entailed, has lately driven this vast bureaucratic cabal – collectively styled as “the blob” – to a stage of abject desperation that looks a lot like insanity.

They fear for their lives, their fortunes, their chattels, and their families, and they seem ready to wreck the republic to save themselves. They have so far pretty much wrecked American justice with their lawfare tactics — a degenerate campaign to use the vested authority of prosecutors and judges to twist and cheat the law at the cost of the law’s legitimacy. Merrick Garland, Norm Eisen, Andrew Weissmann, Mary McCord, Lisa Monaco, Marc Elias, Christopher Wray, Letitia James, Fani Willis, Alvin Bragg have made law the enemy of the people.

All this becomes more obvious each day, for instance events of the past week in Judge Aileen Cannon’s federal courtroom in Florida where the Mar-a-Lago documents case proceeds. Turns out that Special Counsel Jack Smith has deliberately messed with the evidence, which is patently felonious. Also, turns out that sometime between the “Joe Biden” inauguration and the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago in August, 2022, boxes of presidential documents stored by the US General Services Administration were “delivered” to Mr. Trump’s mansion without any proper accounting for what might have been in them. A set-up you suppose? Why not? After everything else the FBI and the DOJ have attempted since 2015?

Christopher Wray in particular might have wanted some surefire probable cause to get his agents into Mar-a-Lago where, rumor has it, Mr. Trump kept his own dossier of evidence against the FBI and DOJ officials who concocted the “Crossfire Hurricane” chapter of RussiaGate. Even if you assume that Mr. Trump had multiple copies of the thing, FBI Director Wray — in position since 2017 throughout most of RussiaGate — surely wanted to see what Mr. Trump was holding if it would become necessary for current and former FBI / DOJ officials to defend themselves in court against very serious charges.

You see the desperation, don’t you? And how stupendously amateurish these machinations have been? Planting evidence and then fiddling around with it? I’m waiting for the moment when Judge Cannon summons Jack Smith and announces to his face that she is tossing the case for prosecutorial misconduct. Will she add a criminal referral to that? How will that affect the other case (attempting to overturn the 2020 election) brought against Mr. Trump in Judge Tanya Chutkan’s DC federal district court? Who will prosecute it if Jack Smith can no longer function as Special Counsel? And since the case was contrived in his name — even if Eisen, McCord, Weissmann, and others are really the authors — does that case blow up, too?

Letitia James’s real estate case under Judge Arthur Engoron was so idiotic it can’t possibly survive an ultimate appeal, and the Alvin Bragg confection under Judge Merchan is playing out like something that usually only happens in places like Honduras or Liberia. Yet the American Left, the “progressive” Democratic Party, is staking everything on it. It’s all they have left Lawfare-wise, at least for now.

Which brings us to the question:

Why do the non-governmental elites of this land, the managerial and thinking classes, the college presidents, the cable news producers, the corporate execs, the movie directors, the whole arts establishment. . . why do they feel compelled, for nearly a decade now, to hitch their identity and their self-respect to this fantastic train of Kafka-esque corruption, tyranny, and abuse? How did they get owned by the blob?

We may never find out, and they may never know either, even after they snap out of the mass formation they’ve been in thrall to. But they have made themselves ridiculous — figures like Sam Harris, Stephen Colbert, and Rob Reiner — yelling about “saving our democracy” while the blob they worship systematically disassembles the US Constitution, and makes American law a global laughingstock.

Most of my old ex-friends are riding the same ideological bus. You have to wonder: how did the likes of “Joe Biden,” Merrick Garland, Liz Cheney, Adam Schiff, Christopher Wray, Fani Willis, Anthony Fauci, Klaus Schwab, and Bill Gates become their heroes?

Did the Covid vaccines destroy their minds? Are they really avid for central bank digital money and surveillance of their every move? Do they want to be told how to live by the WHO?

Things are going south fast now in our country. If these people ever cherished the idea of being free to think their own thoughts and live their own lives, it’s getting late in the game. They will end up prisoners of themselves.

Does the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act ‘Criminalize the Gospel’?

With the heated anti-Semitism protests booming on college campuses, lawmakers, school authorities, and even average citizens are wrestling with how to deal with the chaos, hatred, and slander of Jewish people and the Jewish state. Law enforcement has made their fair share of arrests as pro-Hamas protestors violate policies and incite violence. Many have voiced something must be done to reign in the anti-Jew hostility, and last week the House of Representatives responded by passing the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act (AAA).

The bill’s definition of “anti-Semitism” is not new, but one of the examples it includes is drawing greater scrutiny. Back in May 2016, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), a coalition of all of the largest Jewish organizations (conservative and liberal), agreed on a working definition of anti-Semitism that has since been widely adopted, including by the U.S. State Department in 2016 and by the Trump administration (by executive order) in 2019. The definition states, “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities,” and includes concrete examples (which both the Trump executive order and the current bill included).

While most of the examples have drawn little commentary, there’s one that this time around has sparked concern and controversy, even though it was included in the 2019 Trump executive order: “Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.” The words within the parenthesis are drawing all of the attention.

The second phrase in the parentheses, “blood libel,” is not. Blood libel is defined as the “accusation that Jewish people used the blood of Christians in religious rituals,” and this is a form of anti-Semitism widely acknowledged. But the first part has stirred immense tension, causing many to interpret it as a hinderance to the gospel, which teaches that Jesus was hung on a cross by some hateful Jewish leaders. However, what experts want to point out, including the lead sponsor of AAA, is that this section of the legislation has been heavily misinterpreted.

On Thursday’s episode of “Washington Watch,” Rep. Mike Lawler (R-N.Y.), the sponsor of the legislation, discussed with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins the details of AAA in order to clear the air of what the law is really saying. But before addressing the controversy, the congressman took the time to explain why the legislation matters, and the importance of getting it right.

Considering the anti-Semitism on college campuses, Lawler said, “[T]hese protests are so overwhelmingly anti-Semitic and need to be rooted out at every turn.” He emphasized how out-of-hand they have become, and how they’re “not a function of free speech,” they’re “not a function of … protesting against decisions made by the Israeli government or the United States government. That’s constitutionally protected. This is anti-Semitic hate at its worst.” As such, sharper definitions are needed to crack down.

Perkins re-emphasized how “the main thrust” of the Act “is to adopt a standardized definition of anti-Semitism, which actually takes a definition that’s already in existence.” But “there’s been some opposition raised about this,” he added, specifically when it comes to that one example. As Perkins explained, some are concerned it “would criminalize the gospel.” But according to Lawler, that’s simply not true.

“I’m a practicing Catholic,” Lawler stated. “[B]orn and raised. [I] go to church. I believe very deeply in the gospel and in Jesus Christ.” And so, when people suggest that the claim of “Jews killing Jesus” is somehow a symbol of anti-Semitism, it’s crucial to understand the context of that kind of statement. Lawler insisted, “[N]obody is saying that the Bible should be criminalized. Nobody is saying that anybody who believes in the context of the Bible is somehow wrong.” What it is saying, he continued, “is if you are trying to use something for the purpose of attacking an entire group of people and trying to associate them with some action that someone else may have taken for the purpose of discriminating against them, then that can be considered anti-Semitic.”

Ultimately, “[I]n no way is anybody objecting to or trying to target Christians with this bill. This is about putting in place protections on college campuses for Jewish students.” And, as he went on to highlight, the legislation specifically states individuals have a right to “criticize the State of Israel as you would any other government.” He insisted, “We want robust public debate. People should be free to voice their opinions, their objections to decisions made by the government. Nobody is disputing that.” What the legislation has in mind is the violent protests that have emerged. “[T]he moment those protests turned violent,” Lawler asserted, is the moment “you lose that right” to protest.

Perkins agreed that clear definitions are necessary. Currently, “it’s like silly putty. It’s stretched to accomplish whatever someone wants [it] to do.” Perkins also emphasized that the legislation addressed constitutional protections, stating, “Nothing in this act shall be construed to diminish or infringe upon any right protected under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.” As such, Perkins said, “[R]eligious freedom is not affected by this.”

Lawler also noted that this bill, which passed in the House Wednesday, has “broad bipartisan support.” As he said, “You saw 320 members of Congress vote for this bill. None of us would put forth something that would curtail free speech and First Amendment rights or violate someone’s constitutional freedoms. … [W]e’re trying to provide … a clear path forward on how to deal with these instances of anti-Semitism.”

In comment to The Washington Stand, Quena Gonzalez, senior director of FRC’s Government Affairs, took the time to detail why the misinterpretation of AAA is vital to rectify. While there still may be parts of the legislation some disagree with, Gonzalez carefully addressed the main controversy at hand:

“The example in question only applies to ‘using … claims of Jews killing Jesus … to characterize Israel or Israelis.’ No biblical Christian preaches that Israelis or the Israeli state is responsible for Christ’s death. All of Jesus’s first followers were, in fact, Jews. To be subject to the Education Department ‘reviewing, investigating, or deciding whether there has been a violation of … the Civil Rights Act,’ a covered entity would have to blame Israel or Israelis for Christ’s death, which no orthodox Christian entity does (or really can).

“The language of this bill has applied to all federal agencies since 2019. It was issued as an executive order by President Trump and retained by President Biden. No one objected then, and for the past four and a half years no one has been harassed for preaching the gospel as a result. But as we can see on the news, the Biden Department of Education is not enforcing this long-standing policy, so Congress is acting to enforce it by making it statute.”

The Bible Does Not Justify Anti-Semitism

A bill (H.R. 6090) to make the Department of Education adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism “is unnecessarily raising concerns” about its effect on the gospel message, said Quena Gonzalez, senior director of government affairs at Family Research Council. The IHRA definition includes “contemporary examples,” he told The Washington Stand, among which is “using … claims of Jews killing Jesus … to characterize Israel or Israelis.”

But “no biblical Christian characterizes Israelis or modern Israel, just because they’re Jewish, as having killed Jesus,” Gonzalez responded. “Christians have long denounced this trope, going back to the church fathers of the first few centuries, and Christians today need not be concerned that this bill implicates proclaiming the gospel.”

The New Testament is clear that ethnic Jews and ethnic Gentiles both stand condemned before God as sinners and can only be saved through faith in Jesus Christ. The same God “gives to all mankind life and breath and everything,” and “he made from one man every nation of mankind” (Acts 17:25-26). Yet both Jews and Gentiles have broken God’s law, so “both Jews and Greeks are under sin,” Paul declared (Romans 3:9). “But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law … the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift …” (Romans 3:21-24). Now “there is neither Jew nor Greek … for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).

As to who killed Jesus, the Bible’s most comprehensive answer holds Jews and Gentiles equally responsible — although God was ultimately responsible. As the apostles prayed, “in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place” (Acts 4:27-28). In fulfillment of prophecy (Acts 4:25-26, Psalm 2:1-2), God so orchestrated the circumstances that representatives of all mankind — both Jews and Gentiles, the people and their leaders — participated in Jesus’s death, giving no one group reason to boast against another.

God’s sovereign involvement does not nullify human responsibility, but it does add to the significance of Jesus’s death. Jesus died in this way so that he might be the Savior of the whole world. “The gospel is, that I killed Jesus by my sin,” said Gonzalez. “The gospel (literally, the ‘good news’) is that God the Father sent His Son to die for my sins; God killed Jesus.” In fact, three times Jesus said that he laid down his own life as a sacrifice for his people (John 10:11, 15, 17).

Regrettably, some people — even some Christians throughout history—have lifted biblical texts out of context in an attempt to justify anti-Semitism. In the earliest recorded Christian sermons, preached several months after Jesus’s death in Jerusalem, Jews who believed in Jesus as the Messiah rightly declared to a Jerusalem audience that they had played a role in causing Jesus’s death:

  • “This Jesus … you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men … this Jesus whom you crucified” (Acts 2:23, 36).
  • “Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him. But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and you killed the Author of life …. To this we are witnesses” (Acts 3:13-15).
  • “Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified” (Acts 4:10).
  • “Your fathers … killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered” (Acts 7:52).

This accusation only applied to those present in Jerusalem at Jesus’s crucifixion. When the Jewish apostle Paul preached to Jews living in modern-day Turkey, he did not accuse them of Jesus’s death but “those who live in Jerusalem and their rulers” who “asked Pilate to have him executed” (Acts 13:27-29). He warned these Jews not to imitate those who did not believe in their Messiah.

None of these passages condones anti-Semitism. In each instance, the Jewish preacher aims to convict his hearers of sin so that they might turn to the Messiah and repent. Thus:

  • “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself” (Acts 2:38-39).
  • “Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus,” whom God sent “to you first, to bless you by turning every one of you from your wickedness” (Acts 3:19-20, 26).
  • After “being examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man,” who was enabled to walk and leap by Jesus’s power, Peter declared, “There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:9-12).
  • As some men (including Paul, prior to his conversion) stoned Stephen to death for proclaiming the gospel of Jesus, he prayed, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them” (Acts 7:60).

If God intended to judge the Jewish people for having Jesus killed, then why did he offer them salvation, healing, forgiveness, and blessing? Those who twist these texts into a warrant for anti-Semitism presume to inflict a greater judgment than God, the Judge of all.

In fact, these same passages even show God’s sovereign agency behind Jesus’s death:

  • “This Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God … know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:23, 36).
  • “The God of our fathers glorified his servant Jesus … whom God raised from the dead. … What God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled” (Acts 3:13,15, 18).
  • “Jesus Christ of Nazareth … whom God raised from the dead … this Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone” (Acts 4:10-11, paraphrasing Psalm 118:22).
  • “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God” (Acts 7:56).

Thus it was prophesied, “it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand” (Isaiah 53:10).

Furthermore, those who would abuse biblical texts to justify anti-Semitism must overlook the New Testament’s multiple positive references to Jews. Paul expressed “great sorrow and unceasing anguish” over their unbelief (Romans 9:2). Jews not only received “the oracles of God” (Romans 3:2), but “to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. To them belong the patriarchs, and from their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ, who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen” (Romans 9:4-5).

Paul further testified that God has always preserved a believing remnant among the Jewish people (Romans 11:1-5). “A partial hardening has come upon Israel,” he admitted, but only “until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved. … For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable” (Romans 11:25-26, 29). Paul’s concern — and God’s concern — is that the Jewish people might believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to magnify God’s mercy (Romans 11:32). Anyone concerned with inflicting punishments on or discrimination against the Jewish people is not aligned with God.

To summarize: Jesus willingly laid down his life according to the eternal plan of God, and both Jews and Gentiles, the leaders and the people, were equally complicit in his death. The Bible does not hold Jews especially responsible for Jesus’s death, nor does it hold them especially accursed for their complicity. It certainly does not implicate the modern state of Israel and modern Israelis, who were not there, any more than it implicates modern Gentiles, who were not there. But it does hold out future hope that Jews will come to believe in Jesus.

The IHRA definition of anti-Semitism “does not criminalize the gospel,” insisted Family Research Council Vice President of Policy and Government Affairs Travis Weber on “Washington Watch.” Even in the one example causing confusion, the anti-Semitism “has to be attached to the state of Israel,” he added, and that’s not what Bible-believing Christians do. So, “for Bible-preaching churches that are preaching the gospel, this is not an issue,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said.

America: Willful Blindness

It is hard to believe how quickly we’ve forgotten the largest terrorist attack on American soil. So, let me remind our readers once again:

On September 11, 2001, nineteen Muslim terrorists, mostly Saudi Arabian citizens, hijacked four commercial aircraft. In a synchronized attack, the hijackers deliberately flew two of the planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and a third into the Pentagon. The passengers on the fourth plane launched a counterattack, spurring the hijacker pilot to crash the plane into a field in Pennsylvania.

Approximately 3,000 people died on that day, the single largest loss of life that resulted from a terrorist attack on American soil.

After these attacks, I saw many stickers on many cars saying, “Everything I Needed to Know About Islam I Learned on 9/11.” Well, apparently not.

Islam and Sharia continue to creep into every aspect of American culture stealthily. And too few people know it or are talking about it. Why? Americans have been conditioned by the liberal elites to be tolerant and compassionate, to embrace multiculturalism, and to respect each other’s beliefs, ideals, and values. That would be wonderful in a Utopian world, but the fact is, Islam doesn’t embrace any aspect of Western civilization—much less American culture. We are rapidly and methodically being dismantled as a nation, and our freedom and liberty are more fragile than at any other time since WWII. And while we fight the enemy abroad with combat troops, intelligence, and drone strikes, we’re doing nothing to combat the same enemy who resides on our own soil and in broad daylight.

This is no longer an alarm. Our enemies are already here and busy making plans to make America just like another European country. Suppose we don’t defeat Islam politically, lawfully, and swiftly. In that case, our children and grandchildren may well be engaged in an endless religious and ideological bloody war, the likes of which have never been seen on American soil.

For those who have forgotten what Islam is:

Islam is a theocratic political ideology that hides behind the mask of religion to accomplish its mission of a worldwide caliphate. Americans must understand Islam is a totalitarian “theo-political” belief system and a social doctrine (the two go hand-in-hand) based on the Quran, Sira, and Hadith, what Dr. Bill Warner of the Center for the Study of Political Islam aptly coins the “Trilogy.” It has mandates on every single aspect of life, and those mandates are enforced and regulated by the barbaric criminal and civil codes known as Sharia Law. The precise definition of a Muslim becomes crystal clear when you read the trilogy of Islam. Bottom line: you are to be an Allah-fearing, Quran-believing, and Mohammed-following zealot who forces people to submit, convert, and comply with Islam and Sharia or be killed. Those are the facts.

Does every Muslim follow the commands of the Quran? No, thank God. But as they superficially assimilate themselves into communities and increase in numbers, they become more militant and less tolerant of that community’s laws and regulations.

Any religion or ideology whose “holy book” commands its followers to commit crimes that are antithetical to the laws of this country should not only lose its tax-exempt status but lose its 1st Amendment protections and be banned from the United States altogether. In case you are not familiar with some of the condoned atrocities of Islam and Sharia law, let me tell you a few facts.:

Are you aware that women are stoned to death for committing adultery, and according to the interpretation of Islam, gays should be thrown from a high building and then stoned if they are not dead when they hit the ground? Or that the genitals of little girls are mutilated (FGM)

in an attempt to control her sexuality, and that children may be murdered in the name of family honor? And last, Islam does not recognize the separation of church and state and doesn’t follow our Constitution or any manmade laws. They have their own laws: Sharia or Islamic laws.

In countries where Islamic enclaves and ghettos have emerged, like France, Britain, Sweden, Belgium, and North African countries, local Imams or mullahs enforce Sharia law regardless.  What most Americans fail to understand is that Sharia law is the foundation of Islamic theocracy and totalitarianism. The establishment of global Sharia law is their final goal. The Quran is unequivocal in its directive to Muslims to establish a global Islamic state (Caliphate) over which the Islamic messiah, or Mahdi, will rule with Sharia as the only law of the land. Make no mistake that is the intent of influential Islamic elements in America.

The problem is that too few Americans are aware of it, and organizations like the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Brotherhood are taking full advantage of our naiveté and our lenient laws. Moreover, Islam stands in stark contrast to the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and what the First Amendment was designed to protect—our God-given unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Sharia law is very complex and it’s derived from multiple Islamic sources: the Quran, considered the “unmitigated word of Allah” is the primary source of Sharia law. The Hadith (sayings and actions of Muhammad) is the second most important document in Sharia and Sira (the life of prophet Muhammad). Historic rulings by jurists over the years and so-called reasoning by analogy make up the other two less influential sources of Sharia. Together they constitute Islam’s theological core and they result in a totalitarian way of life for Muslim followers and non-Muslims (kafirs and infidels). Sharia law is in complete contradiction with American values because it enslaves people and encourages acts of violence and barbaric behavior. Sharia demands the death of those who renounce Islam.

In short, Mild Islam is not all that obtrusive since it is like the early stages of pregnancy. Yet, pregnancy it is. Before long, the full-term beast will make its appearance. If we don’t want to deal with the beast, we need to prevent the pregnancy in the first place.

Why the U.S. Ignores Islam’s Threat & What to do about Iran?

Why the U.S. Ignores Islam’s Threat

Forget the left; they are already in cahoots with the Islamists, and they will assuredly be among the very first victims of Islam as soon as it assumes power. They both share an ideological milieu with an authoritarian mindset. Islam, with the help of the leftist media and the Democrat Party, has been using the US Constitution against the American people to advance their Islamic agenda.

The left has put America in a very precarious position by allying with America’s enemy. We are in a state of subversion, and most of us don’t even dare to name the enemy, which is Islam. It is no surprise. The so-called Democrat Party always allies itself with America’s hardcore enemies. It could be radical Muslims, illegal aliens, terrorists of all stripes, etc. For as long as they hate America, the Democrats consider them friends.

Many Americans are confused as to why Democrats back Islamic ideology, honor their holidays and customs, and promote them as “the religion of peace,” knowing full well that Islam is not a religion of peace. The answer is quite simple: The Democrat Party will do anything to stay in power. They stand with anyone who dislikes America and the Republican Party.

For those who wish to serve this great nation and hope to keep it on its course toward its glorious destiny, the left recoils. An unholy coalition has been placed by homicidal liberals with Islamists who wish to destroy our existing order of freedom and liberty.

When Democrats and their newfound allies don’t like what they hear, they resort to ridicule, accusations, and name-calling. In fact, they call everyone their favorite word, “racist” or Islamophobes. The Republican Party is not far behind on this issue. No one, not a single elected official in the US Congress, has dared to raise the Islam issue and speak about this extremely important topic that is eating America alive.

So far, nothing has phased our representatives to get serious about Islamic issues and their agenda.

Not even the 9/11 attacks, when a group of Muslims killed nearly 3,000 people, made them think twice about stopping Islam’s ideology. Not an Islamic extremist massacring forty-nine people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, not San Bernardino, CA, where 14 people were killed, not Major Nadal Hassan, a Muslim psychiatrist who gunned down thirteen unarmed soldiers and injured 30 others while yelling Allah-o-Akbar at Ft. Hood, TX. Not Muslim snipers killing three men and two women in separate attacks over 15 hours in Montgomery County, MD. Not even Islamic terrorists detonated a massive truck bomb under the World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring over 1,000 trying to collapse the towers in New York City, and six people died. Not when ten members of a local mosque phoned in a false alarm and then ambushed the responding officers, killing one, in New York City. Not when a Pakistani with Mujahedeen ties gunned down two CIA agents outside of their headquarters, killing them in Langley, VA. Not when a ‘devout Muslim’ staged a suicide attack on a recruiting center at a strip mall and a Naval Center, which left five dead, in Chattanooga, TN, had any effect on US officials. The list goes on, but you get the point.

What can these elected officials do? The least they can do is pass laws that protect American citizens. It’s that easy. They can ban Sharia law in all 50 states, but they won’t. As you can see, these are not isolated issues. As a representative republic, it is incumbent upon these officials to make sure their fellow citizens are safe. But, these officials are also victims of another form of ideology: political correctness. The executive and legislative branches must sit down together and find a solution to this crisis; otherwise, future generations will find themselves in a political and religious war that they have never seen.

In Islamdom, they can dish out insults to non-Muslims and arrest Christians, Bahia’s, or the Jews just for praying. They can confiscate their Holy books and toss them in the trash. They call Jews pigs and monkeys and spit on anyone who isn’t Muslim. But they go into frenzies of self-righteous outrage at the slightest criticism of their barbaric and highly dangerous beliefs.

They never need to challenge the existing political order in our country but can achieve all their goals without bothering or violating the Constitution of the U.S. because the Constitution guarantees complete government non-interference toward religions. Finally, and the most important element perhaps, is the extreme coziness and appeasement of U.S. officials towards Islam and Muslims, which will recklessly and unknowingly drag the entire country and her citizens into an everlasting Islamic inferno, an inferno like the Islamic Republic in occupied Iran and other Islamic terrorist countries.

Even if most Muslims seek to adopt an American lifestyle, a great many Muslims are dead-set on using violence to make America conform to their barbaric way of life. Islam is a cancer. Cancer cells are always few at the beginning, and if left unchecked, they keep multiplying, eventually devouring the non-cancerous organism.

What to do about Iran?

The most promising solution is in the free world’s united support of the Iranian opposition groups to the rule of the Mullahs.

There is no shortage of proposals regarding what to do about the present Iran conundrum. Some proposals are authored by experts such as Henry Kissinger, while others are put forward by a variety of lesser luminaries.

I am one of the lesser luminaries. I have been observing and worrying about my country of birth, Iran, ever since a gang of murderous Mullahs and their functionaries assumed power. To my infinite regret and the regret of millions of Iranians, the situation in Iran under the fascist rule of Mullahs is rapidly deteriorating in every respect.

The Iranians, historically among the most civilized and tolerant of mankind, are now viewed as the base recruits of a primitive seventh-century barbaric campaign of Islamofascism. Iran, under the stranglehold and machinations of the Mullahs, has been transformed, in less than four decades, to the lead perpetrator of all that is abhorrent to humanity.

The “Iran Problem” is now a world problem. The question is, what should we do about Iran?

Pivotal to the success of any solution is first the realization that Islam is a religion of death and misery. A few facts are presented below to support this assertion.

  • The Quran itself repeatedly glorifies death, killing, and dying for Islam. It promises the faithful infinite rewards for his Jihad in Allah’s paradise.
  • Nearly all Islamic holy days, particularly those of the Shiite sect, are observances and re-enactments associated with death.
  • The Palestinian territory is festooned with huge portraits of the “martyrs,” the suicide bombers that the rest of the world calls them for what they are.
  • Streets, parks, and all manners of public places in the Islamic Republic are named after “martyrs” of various sorts.
  • Sheikh Hasan Nasrullah, the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon and the pawn of Iran’s Mullahs, assured the world of Hezbollah’s victory over Israel by proudly announcing: “We will prevail because the Israelis want to live, and we relish death.

The litany of Islamic death-based beliefs and actions is long indeed. It is, therefore, understandable that Iran’s Mullahs are obsessed agents of death. Islam, the Mullahs’ and their fanatic followers’ system of belief, denigrates life and glorifies death. To these people, death is not death. It is martyrdom, a sure passage to the unimaginably magnificent eternal paradise promised in the Quran.

Under the rule of these adherents of death, everything in Iran is deteriorating and dying. Despite huge oil revenues, the per capita income of the Iranians is now about one-third of what it was before the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Every form of misery has also skyrocketed. Drug addiction, prostitution, and suicide have gone through the roof. The young and the educated continue deserting Iran and family, fleeing to the four corners of the earth in search of a decent life.

To make matters worse, the agents of death, the Mullahs, divert the sorely needed funds at home to sponsor and support adventurous Islamic trouble-making abroad. They supply weapons, provide funds, and train any and all takers who share their wanton campaign of terrorism anywhere in the world.

Dissatisfaction with the rule of the Mullahs is widespread. Students, traditionally the vanguard of political and social reform in Iran, continue their valiant struggle in the face of torture, imprisonment, and death. Labor unions, although tightly controlled, are in a constant state of rebellion against the inhumane treatment by the state. Ethnic and religious minorities suffering under ruthless Islamic injustice and Pogrom-like measures are ripe for mass eruption.

The lifeblood of Iran’s economy is oil and natural gas. The criminal neglect and squandering of these vital and irreplaceable resources hold a future of even more severe hardship for the Iranian people. Impartial expert studies show that Iran’s oil production, at the present rate of exploitation and absence of maintenance, will decline by nearly ten percent per year and will hit zero by 2024.

Corruption and mismanagement, combined with the huge allocation of resources to acquire nuclear weapons, are bound to burden the country’s badly ailing economy and will likely bury the Mullahs in the rubbles of their own making and grant them their death wish. Regrettably, these purveyors of death aim to hurt and kill many innocent people along the way to their inevitable looming graves.

Over the years, much of the world has been preoccupied with its own problems and showed little concern for the plight of the Iranian people until the Mullahs installed a firebrand Islamist, Ahmadinejad, as the President of the country. This man, called by many Iranians “The Monkey,” is was alarming the world by being in control of the Islamofascist train and throttling it full speed ahead for a cataclysmic collision. Former IRI President Ahmadinejad and the current mass murderer, Raisi and their gang are loading their guns and doing all they can to obtain the bomb to bring about the biggest and most dreadful death that would usher in the “Mahdi,” their savior-ruler of the world.

What can the world do is a huge question. Some advocate military solutions of various types, ranging from surgical bombings of Iran’s nuclear facilities to military occupation of its oil-producing regions along the Persian Gulf to a full occupation of the country. Each and every one of these trigger-happy solutions is doomed to failure since they will play directly into the hands of the Mullahs. Any military action against Iran will encounter Iranians’ fierce sense of national pride that would rally the people to support the regime. Military actions would compound the problem by creating a greater worldwide Islamic solidarity against the perceived “Crusaders-Zionists” conspiracy.

Some see the solution in negotiation with the Mullahs. These people are either naïve or dishonest. Mullahs’ negotiation is Islamic to the core. They take all, and you give all since you, according to the Islamic fiat, are not entitled to anything. One can see how Muslims negotiate even among themselves in places like Iraq, the Palestinian territory, Pakistan, and every other Islamic land.

The most promising solution is in the free world’s united support of the Iranian opposition groups to the rule of the Mullahs. The Iranian people themselves are fully capable and are determined to remove the cancer of Islamism from their country. The United States, Israel, and other democracies have a huge stake in the success of the Iranian people to rid themselves of Islamic tyranny.

As I have briefly outlined above, the Mullahs are highly vulnerable. A comprehensive political, moral, and economic measure by the United States and others offers the best chance of ending Mullah’s reign of terror and diffusing the existential threat they pose to the world. The Bible says, “From those who are much given, much is demanded.” Perhaps it is for this reason that the people of the United States of America are again called upon to make huge sacrifices to defeat another tyranny. It is important that this great nation stays the course and enlists its power in support of freedom-loving Iranians to topple the ruling Islamofascists who are bent on wreaking death and destruction in the world.

It is also important to keep in mind Albert Einstein’s warning, “The world is a dangerous place not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”

When it comes to doing something prudent, it is good to follow the advice of the ancient Persians: “The lion of the meadow of Mazandaran can be captured by no other than a Mazadarani warrior.” The best match for the ruthless Mullahs and their hired Islamic stormtroopers are the Iranian warriors themselves. The people of Iran themselves are the best solution for the present Iranian conundrum. The valiant Iranians need a bit of help. And the last thing they need is appeasing negotiators to give the Mullahs a new lease on life, an invasion by the Marines, or a shower of bombs from the sky.

Polish Authorities Try to Suppress What Really Happened to Jews in Poland

The gang-up on Israel we have seen since October 7 did not spring up ex nihilo. It has long and deep roots. Poland, for instance, has tried to forget that it was not just a blameless victim of the Nazis. There were Poles who during the war hid Jews, and Poles make up one-fourth of the names of Righteous Gentiles at Yad Vashem. But there were also Poles who helped the Nazis, leading them to places where Jews were hiding. Just after the war, when the few Jews who had survived the camps returned to reclaim their homes, they were often forced by the Poles who had taken over their homes and businesses to go away empty-handed. Jews were not just expelled, but in some places murdered by the Poles occupying their property, so as to prevent them from ever bringing a claim.

The Polish government has in recent years come down hard on Polish historians researching and writing on the subject of Polish mistreatment, betrayal, and murder of Jews during and after the war. Two of them, Jan Grabowski and Barbara Engelking, have been declared guilty of the defamation of Edward Malinowski, who was the prewar mayor of a Polish village called Malinowo. More on the travails of these historians, and the attempt of Polish authorities to suppress the findings of historians studying what really happened to Jews in Poland, are discussed in this 2021 article that has taken on new significance in light of how the world has treated Israel since October 7:

Two Polish historians of the Holocaust, Jan Grabowski and Barbara Engelking, are fighting a court ruling that pronounced them guilty of defaming a long-deceased Polish village official. Grabowski and Engelking are the editors of “Dalej Jest Noc. Losy Żydów w Wybranych Powiatach Okupowanej Polski” (“Night Without End: The Fate of Jews in Selected Counties of Occupied Poland”). It was published in 2018, to significant academic acclaim and surprisingly brisk sales for a two-volume, seventeen-hundred-page scholarly title. One chapter, written by Engelking, mentioned Edward Malinowski, the prewar mayor of a small village called Malinowo. According to testimony uncovered by Engelking, Malinowski led the Nazis to Jews who were hiding in the forest outside the village; twenty-two people were killed. Last month, a Warsaw district court found that this passage of “Night Without End” defamed Malinowski, and ordered Grabowski and Engelking to apologize in print. Grabowski and Engelking have appealed the ruling.

The two historians’ legal troubles stem from the Polish government’s ongoing effort to exonerate Poland of any role in the deaths of three million Jews in Poland during the Nazi occupation. When facts get in the way of this revisionist effort, historians pay the price. In 2016, Polish authorities began investigating the Polish-American historian Jan Tomasz Gross, the author of the groundbreaking book “Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland.” He was accused of insulting the Polish people for his observation that Poles killed more Jews than Germans during the Second World War. The case dragged on for three years, with Gross subjected to hours of police interrogations; the government also threatened to strip Gross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland, a state honor he had received in 1996. (The state dropped the investigation after Gross retired from his job at Princeton.) Over 2019 and 2020, Dariusz Stola, the head of Warsaw’s acclaimed museum of Polish Jewry, found himself slowly squeezed out of his job, again by the Polish government….

If Poland wants to convince the world that all Polet were blameless, that the murder of Polish Jews was entirely a German affair with which Poles had nothing to do — something we know to be false thanks to Polish historians, by no means all of them Jewish — it is certainly not helping itself with the decision of the country’s National Bank to issue a commemorative silver coin honoring a figure who was both a noted guerrilla leader fighting the Soviet-backed communists in postwar Poland, and an antisemite who murdered Jews. More on this ill-advised plan to honor such a personage can be found here.

Poland’s National Bank has announced that it will issue a special silver coin commemorating a leading figure in the post-war anti-communist underground who was accused of murdering Jews in the country’s Podhale region.

The coin honoring Józef Kuraś, to be issued on March 15, forms part of a series commemorating the “doomed soldiers” who fought the Soviet Union’s takeover of Poland in the aftermath of World War IIKuraś joined the anti-Nazi resistance in 1939, emerging as a leading figure in the anti-communist movement in April 1945. For nearly two years, units of Kuraś’s “Błyskawica”organization were active in southern and central Poland. In Jan. 1947, Kuraś is understood to have committed suicide rather than be taken prisoner by the communist authorities amid a gun battle in the village of Ostrowsko….

“Since the publication of Jan Gross’s groundbreaking books in the 2000s, Poland made a lot of progress as a democratic nation in dealing with the legacy of antisemitism – but over the last years much of that progress has been reversed and a far-right nationalist outlook on Polish history has prevailed in many institutions,” Rafal Pankowski, executive director of the “Never Again” Association, told The Algemeiner in an email.

“This is one more instance of a glorification of a notorious antisemitic figure by an important state institution,” Pankowski added.

To glorify this person who, however stubbornly he may have resisted the Communist takeover of Poland, was also an antisemite responsible for murdering dozens of Jews, including orphans, and perhaps many more, is most unwise. It is tantamount to a declaration that “we can’t base our judgements of someone on how he viewed or treated the Jews. We’ve heard quite enough about their victimhood. What about our victimhood at the hands of the Communists? Why should we not honor someone who bravely fought the Communists, even if he was not perfect when it came to dealing with Jews? He was a Polish patriot, and for that he is being honored.”

Unfortunately, that appalling point of view has been adopted by too many people in Poland. It will take a great effort to educate young Poles as to how Jews were actually treated – some well, but also some very badly, even murderously – by Poles, during and after the war. But it’s a task that must be undertaken.

Embracing Change

For most folks change is a scary proposition; OK, maybe not scary but surely thought provoking if not concerning. Yet change is often a catalyst for growth in our lives. Change keeps us from getting stuck in a rut. Change brings about newness of one form or another and gets our cognitive juices flowing. Change “stirs us” out of our comfortable situation and causes us to stretch – mentally, and no doubt emotionally. Change is really a gift from God, even those changes that appear not happy ones; God simply loves us too much to allow us to live in mediocrity no matter how much we are enjoying the comfortable little patch of life we have located, built and strongly cling onto.

Do you know how the eagle teaches her little ones to fly? She takes her little eaglets on her back to a really HIGH altitude — way out of their comfort zone or little patch of AAAHHH, and then DROPS THEM! How rude! Then she swoops down and grabs them and does it all over again! MOM!!! She continues this act allowing the eaglet to fall further each time until the eaglet spreads its wings and soars into the air (probably with a great smile on its little eaglet face…OK, beak). Change promoted by what appears to be a “mean mom” is really changed orchestrated for the best interest of the eaglet; allowing the eaglet to find strength and confidence in tackling a very unpleasant and even scary task.

You may not be facing being dropped from a high altitude today, but you may feel nevertheless really scared and out of your comfort zone with a new assignment to which you have been tasked. Or maybe a boss or team leader who appears so very corporate and uncaring. Maybe a combination of both along with some personal stuff that causes you no rest in your own nest when you escape the corporate world or daily struggles. You’re anxious. You’re worried about failing. You’re concerned that you won’t measure up with the other eaglets. Along with all this worry, please find a vacant spot inside you to place the idea…this change is really an opportunity for you to fly; to take one step closer to becoming what you were always meant to be; to demonstrate that no matter what the altitude, you will find a way to glide until the moment you fly, and then soar.

I don’t make light of your situation or the fear you have just experienced or the radical change that just occurred in your life. I do want you to know I believe in YOU even though we may have never met. I believe you can find your way to soar past the fear of falling you may be experiencing, and I wanted you to know I am cheering you on with this little note :-).

Domestic Genocide in Iran

Mullahs and their mercenaries are terrorizing the Iranian people. 

The world’s most notorious state exponent of anti-Semitism, the Islamic Republic of Iran, is on a path to uproot not only all that is perceived as civilized but to annihilate the greatest threat to its existence, the Iranian people. The mullahs and their mercenaries are wasting precious human lives in order to maintain their power by terrorizing.

The Iranian people are simply hopeless and helpless.

The population.

The Iranian people are simply hopeless and helpless. Even the United Nations does not come to their rescue. From its past performance, rather than its absence of performance, we know that the UN watchdog is a true disgrace to dogs since all it does is eat, sleep, and look the other way. Furthermore, the dog has no teeth. The vet had to pull all its teeth before the dog became acceptable to the crafty cats that constitute the UN itself.

The Islamic Republic is a unique creature – it is best described as a theocratic aristocracy. The “divinely ordained” rulers maintained themselves in power through an elaborate system of patronage. Lucrative positions, contracts and valued privileges are distributed in this way. The result is that the ruling mullahs enjoy a significant number of supporters in all strata of society – the civil service, the military, the powerful Revolutionary Guards, and the hooligans and thugs who are ready to unleash their vicious attacks on anyone or any group that dares to challenge the in-charge men of Allah.

The illegitimate government of the Islamic Republic is a quisling entity that has betrayed its people, its tradition, and its glorious pre-Islamic achievements and is incessantly working against Iran’s national interest. Iran, under the stranglehold and machinations of the mullahs, has been transformed, in less than three decades, into the lead perpetrator of all that is abhorrent to humanity.

The supreme leader of the Islamic Republic, Ali Khamenei, like his predecessor, Ayatollah Khomeini, whose callous disregard for human life was matched only by his consuming paranoia, allegedly has issued a decree to hang Iranian dissidents publicly in all the towns and villages with a population that exceeds 1,000 people. For Ayatollah Khamenei, dissident viewpoints represent an unacceptable threat. Anyone found questioning the Shari’a law – and many hundreds of thousands were – had to be “weeded out.” The Islamic Republic is on a mission to end human life in Iran.

The Islamic Republic has the dubious distinction of executing more children, those under the age of 18, than any other country in the world. Such is the plight of the Iranian people.

Iran’s ruling mullahs are clustered around major factions such as the fundamentalists, the moderates, and the so-called reformists. Yet, the differences among these factions are tactical rather than strategic. One and all share the same overarching goal of defeating the “Crusader-Zionists” by any and all methods possible, bringing about the “end of the world” Armageddon, and thereby creating the requisite conditions for the appearance of the Hidden Imam, the Mahdi, to assume his rule of the world.

“What is the likelihood that the ruling mullahs will actually use the bomb?” you may ask. “If they remain in power long enough to have it, they are very likely to use it, in one form or another,” you are told. At the very least, they will use the bomb for blackmail and intimidation in the region. You may ask how you can help prevent this catastrophe. “Support the Iranian peoples’ struggle for freedom by at least petitioning,” you are told.

In order to achieve total control, the Islamic Republic and its lackeys spawned a series of immense internal purges, beginning in 1988 and known as the “Massacre of Political Prisoners of 1988.” They have intensified their domestic terror in recent months and weeks.

A society that is intense in its struggle for change has a flip side to its idealism: intolerance. This totalitarian regime sees enemies everywhere, enemies who want to destroy the Islamic Revolution and diminish the results of its hard work of creating an Islamic utopia in the land of Cyrus the Great.

The regime seems to be panicking with hyper-suspiciousness. They have installed watchdogs in schools, universities, factories, and all offices across the country and are urged to be vigilant against sabotage, against those who crave freedom and democracy. Many innocent Iranians are being victimized, and the saying has gone around that “when you chop wood, the chips fly.” As with Khamenei, it is believed that some who are innocent will have to be victimized if all of the guilty are to be apprehended.

In fact, they stigmatize, victimize, and murder people without any due process of law. On the slightest suspicion, they arrest, convict, and execute. Few people would deny any longer that Islam and its variants mean, in practice, bloody terrorism, deadly purges, lethal actions, forced hijab, fatal deportations, extrajudicial executions, show trials, and genocide. It is killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people.

Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the greatest threats to the stability of the civilized world and humanity at large. It continues to impose this horrendous ideology called Islam on the Iranian population. The world must file legal charges against the leaders of the Islamic Republic for their wanton violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for their crimes against humanity and genocidal actions against religion. 

The regime seems to be panicking

And political groups; for support of international terrorism; for demolition of religious sites and cemeteries; for rape, torture, and summary executions of prisoners of conscience; forgery of documents; for acts of blackmail and fraud; and much more.

To those misguided advocates of negotiation with the mullahs, beware. The mullahs are on an Allah-mandated mission. They are intoxicated with petrodollars and aim to settle for nothing less than complete domination of the world under the Islamic Ummah. It is precisely for this reason that they consider America and the West as Ofooli, a setting, dying system, while they believe their Islamism is Tolooi, a rising, living order. They are in no mood to negotiate for anything less than the total surrender of democracy, the very anathema to Islamism. This is only one reason, but perhaps one of the greatest reasons, for fostering democracy.

Cultural Terrorism Comes to America

Globalism is a replacement ideology that seeks to reorder the world into one singular, planetary Unistate, ruled by the globalist elite. The globalist war on nation-states cannot succeed without collapsing the United States of America. The long-term strategic attack plan moves America incrementally from constitutional republic to socialism to globalism to feudalism. The tactical attack plan uses asymmetric psychological and informational warfare to destabilize Americans and drive society out of objective reality into the madness of subjective reality. America’s children are the primary target of the globalist predators.


The upward mobility provided by the capitalist system and meritocracy in the United States created a vibrant middle class. In a land of opportunity, working-class people were no longer reliable revolutionaries. Scott S. Powell, Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute in Seattle and writer for The American Spectator, explains the shift in Marxist strategy with a bit of history about Vladimir Lenin. From Powell’s August 15, 2015, article, “The Quiet Revolution: How the New Left Took Over the Democratic Party“:[i]

The proletariat never did revolt successfully en masse in any advanced industrialized state. Instead, Marx’s political and economic revolution was first staged in the largely agrarian nation of Russia, carried out by Marxist revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin. Lenin made major contributions to Marx’s theories, so much so that Marxism-Leninism became the dominant theoretical paradigm for advancing national liberation movements, communism, and socialism wherever in the world radical revolutionary movements arose.

Among Lenin’s contributions was the theory of the vanguard. Since it was apparent that the proletariat masses were unlikely to rise up, Lenin argued that it was necessary for a relatively small number of vanguard leaders—professional revolutionaries—to advance the revolutionary cause by working themselves into positions of influence. By taking over the commanding heights of labor unions, the press, the universities, and professional and religious organizations, a relatively small number of revolutionaries could multiply their influence and exercise political leverage over their unwitting constituents and society at large.

It was Lenin who introduced the concept of the “popular front” and coined the phrase “useful idiots” in describing the masses who could be manipulated into mob action of marches and protests for an ostensibly narrow cause of the popular front, which the communist vanguard was using as a means for a greater revolutionary political end.

The Marxists needed to identify a new cohort of rebels to collapse American society from within. They chose academia and anointed its graduating student population of useful idiots to be vanguard leaders for changing hearts and minds in America. What Bolshevik George Lukács was unable to impose in Catholic Hungary, cultural terrorism, has been wildly successful in America; it just needed a different strategy in order to succeed.

The 1969 Woodstock Festival was a watershed event for the counterculture movement in music, drugs, and sexual permissiveness. The sexual revolution was a social and cultural movement advocating sexual liberation and acceptance of public nudity, premarital sex, extramarital sex, alternative forms of sexuality, contraception, pornography, homosexuality, masturbation, and abortion. Significantly absent from any discussion of sexual liberation were love, loyalty, commitment, and respect.

The foundation for the sexual revolution that challenged and defied America’s traditional Judeo-Christian standards of sexual behavior in the 1960s and 1970s had its roots in Alfred Kinsey’s twin books, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948)[ii] and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953).[iii] Alfred Kinsey and the Kinsey Institute were supported by the Rockefeller Foundation and protected by the U.S. government. Kinsey’s fraudulent research was presented as scientific, factual, and normative. Its catastrophic consequences continue to reverberate in America, advancing Marxism’s intent to collapse from within America’s cultural norms and family infrastructure.

The sexual revolution drastically changed attitudes about sexual behavior and freedom of sexual expression. Those changes were animated, echoed, and reflected in literature, films, and legislation. Eventually the counterculture attitudes of sexual freedom and liberation from traditional Judeo-Christian sexual restrictions touched the children.

Author and researcher Dr. Judith Reisman (1935–2021) was an indefatigable defender of children and society’s moral responsibility to protect them. Her work exposed Kinsey’s fraudulent research and abhorrent ideology that children are sexual from birth and have a right to experience sexual pleasure whenever and with whomever they want. Kinsey insisted that Judeo-Christian principles concerning human sexuality were outdated, unscientific, and repressive. Dr. Reisman’s exposé of Kinsey implicated its hidden sociopolitical connections to the globalist War on America. She explained how Kinsey’s narrative was weaponized for use in the Culture War to support the sexual revolution, collapse societal norms, and change laws regarding the protection of children, globalism’s ultimate target.

Dr. Reisman’s seminal work, “MKULTRA, KINSEY & ROCKEFELLER: Instruments of the New World Order,”[iv]published by the Reisman Institute on January 27, 2021, provides an overview:

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

In 1932 communist W. Z. Foster predicted the destruction of America’s “education, morality, ethics, science, art, patriotism, religion” was necessary to establish a “New World Order.” 1 America’s social, economic, and sexual stability rested on Judeo-Christian beliefs and laws—abstinence before and faithfulness during consensual heterosexual marriage. Her national health and wealth testified to the success of this normal biopsychological sexual model. From 1941, when America entered WWII, the Rockefeller Foundation (RF) began funding the work of Dr. Alfred Kinsey, who would have been known to RF as a sadomasochistic bi/homosexual. RF backing ensured Kinsey’s 1948 book, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, instant popularity; “the Kinsey scale” codified “fluid sexuality” for the future, ensuring his enduring international fame. RF connected Kinsey with a wider network of RF-funded scientists. From c.1946 Kinsey partnered with RF’s Columbia-Greystone Brain Project at New York’s “Snake Pit,” Rockland Mental Hospital. The results of Kinsey’s studies of sexual responses of lobotomized patients are sanitized in Kinsey’s 1953 book, Sexual Behavior in the Human Female.

This paper provides new evidence that the ~2,034 infants and children sexually violated for Kinsey’s globe-changing “scientific proof” of infant/child orgasm were sourced from these and similar entities. 82% of Kinsey’s child sex experiments are a match with the “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques” used on terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay. Since Kinsey’s definition of “orgasm” involves symptomatology indistinguishable from epileptic fit, terror/distress and/or electric shock treatment, the physiological responses he declared as child “orgasm” were true trauma responses. This is a newly uncovered Kinsey fraud represented as “science” by his RF funders. Very far from the organic “shock” of a scientific break-through advertised, this paper argues that Kinsey’s sex work served as part of a broader psyops2 as rationale for thorough social change.

As recently as 2020, RF claimed credit for “funding a sexual revolution” via the “Kinsey Reports.” From 1954 Congressional efforts to investigate Kinsey’s sex work and the causal connection between pornography and ever-rising levels of child sexual abuse have been successfully blocked. Those acting in Rockefeller interests have prevented Kinsey’s exposure while promoting his conclusions. From 1953, Hefner, “Kinsey’s pamphleteer,” marketed RF/Kinsey’s lies to young college men via Playboy. The sexual restraint of previous generations—responsible for building America—were reframed as a web of hypocritical lies; premarital, extramarital, meaningless, love-free sex glamorized; and a generation, with Hefner its guru, embraced cynicism about human relationships, nihilism and rejection of all received wisdom.

The 1955 RF-funded Model Penal Code (MPC), drafted by RF’s approved team, citing Kinsey, would over-turn prior sex laws, including obscenity laws by 1957, and trivialized sexual abuse. In 1964, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), funded by Playboy, and based at the Kinsey Institute, taught schools to disparage chastity, heterosexuality and monogamy. Soon, with “obscenity exemptions” allowed for “education,” K–12 instructed in exotic sexual behaviors. Ever-greater upticks in child rape, pornography and deadly STDs have, predictably, followed. In 2014, the Kinsey Institute (KI) won United Nations consultative status for “educational” materials which aimed at over-riding the most basic instinct for self-preservation in children of all ages, effectively preparing them to co-operate with RF’s social change agenda.

Since 2019 the KI’s App., the “Kinsey Reporter”, solicited “citizen scientists” (of any age) to record/report all sex acts/crimes anonymously.

Congressional investigation of a criminal nexus of RF, KI, Big Pharma, Big Porn, Big Abort and “sexual health” providers and educators, past and present, is critically needed to halt the damage these entities inflicted on three successive generations in their obsession for a New World Order.

2 Psychological operations…to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning, and…behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.

THE THESIS

For over seven decades, powerful entities prevented official investigation of Dr. Alfred Kinsey and promoted his conclusions as “truth”. The result is that public policy, education, and law have been guided by the lies of a psychopathic4 pedosadist.5 Instead of protecting children and scaffolding the family, government policy has facilitated the agenda of allied interest groups which benefit personally, financially, and/or politically from sexual exploitation of the vulnerable and the destruction of the nuclear family. Notable among these beneficiaries are the very elites who, wishing to establish a New World Order, initiated and funded Kinsey’s work, sold his lies to the public, and obstructed investigation of Kinsey and the Institute that bears his name and continues his work to this day. Official investigation of Kinsey—and the cultural transformation he set in motion—is long overdue.

4 The use of such a term “psychopath” is not simply hyperbole. It is used in the clinical sense of the word. Academic researchers, such as Robert Hare, Ph.D, (1) and James Fallon, Ph.D. (2), and forensic clinicians who have spent years working with incarcerated psychopaths in long-term solitary and in general population, such as Jon K. Uhler, LPC (3), each concur that the clinical definition of a psychopath can be boiled down to someone lacking conscience, empathy, and remorse:

(1) http://www.psychology-criminalbehavior-law.com/2015/01/hare-psychopath/
(2) https://www.crimetraveller.org/2015/07/inside-mind-of-psychopath-psychopathic-killer

(3) https://www.quora.com/Why-do-certain-psychologists-mix-up-cluster-B-traits-and-deem-the-combination-a- sociopath/answer/Jon-K-Uhler
Given that Kinsey elected to sexually abuse children, allow other deviant adults to sexually abuse them under the guise of scientific experiments, and the fact that he would do so to so many children, and never experience any signs of remorse or contrition, would clearly categorize him well within the realm of psychopathy. In fact, given that he would then take such “results” from such diabolically abusive “treatment” of children, which would no doubt have profound life-altering and life-long consequences on those children, and use that in such a brazen manner so as to appear as having done legitimate research (as opposed to having perpetrated and sanctioned the perpetration of children), for the purpose of creating a belief about the supposed sexuality of children, in order to craft public opinion, public policy, judicial decisions, and impact state and federal legislation reveals a profoundly psychopathic agenda-driven mind, intent upon shifting the culture toward a greater acceptance of child sexuality and the narrative of mutual love and sexual expression between persons, regardless of age. After all, we’re now told that “Love is Love”, “Love knows no boundaries”, and “Love knows no age.” https://www.growingbolder.com/love-has-no-age-3020496/

5 While “pedophile” and “pederast” have been used to describe those who desire to, or who do, sexually violate, exploit children, the term means “child-lover” (“philia” the Greek for love or more recently, “friendly feeling toward,” https://www.merriam- webster.com/dictionary/-philia).

The leaders of the counterculture on campuses in the ’60s and ’70s graduated and became vanguard leaders, professional revolutionaries who advance the revolutionary cause by working themselves into positions of influence. They are the labor leaders, the press, and leaders of universities, professional organizations, and religious organizations. They have multiplied their influence and exercise political leverage over their unwitting constituents and society at large, exactly as Scott S. Powell described.

Today’s vanguard leaders are called “influencers,” and they are manipulating today’s masses of useful idiots into mob action just as their predecessors did. The difference between the nascent counterculture of the ’60s and ’70s and the radical leftist Democrats of the 2024 Democrat party is in both form and content. Today’s influencers reach a worldwide audience using the Internet, and their new corps of chosen rebels are young American parents—indoctrinated millennials.

The communist vanguard and influencers use the “popular front” of parents as “useful idiots” for the revolutionary end of grooming American children to become the newest counterculture generation of anti-American socialist citizens. Today’s American parents, the second generation of useful idiots, are low-information voters who surrender their authority and common sense to the influencers. Rather than protect their precious children, they accept the horrific sexualization of them as harmless and embrace the insanity of cultural terrorism as normal.

Let’s take a look at sex education in American schools in 2024. Any school, public or private, that receives government funding is subject to the overt sexualization of children. Political analyst Karen McKay, LTC USAR (Ret.), offers a helpful overview in her American Thinker article published November 5, 2022, “Weaponizing Children.”[v] She writes:

To achieve an American Marxist utopia, it would be necessary to dismantle the Judeo-Christian values that have undergirded America since the founding. Adult Americans being incorrigibly patriotic and religious, it was necessary to capture their kids.

In 1928, Fabian Socialist George Bernard Shaw [1856–1950] boasted in his The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism, Capitalism, Sovietism and Fascism:

In the case of young children, we have gone far in our interference with the old Roman rights of parents. For nine mortal years the child is taken out of its parents’ hands for most of the day, and thus made a State-school child instead of a private family child….

The social creed must be imposed on us when we are children; for it is like riding, or reading music at sight: it can never become a second nature to those who try to learn it as adults; and the social creed, to be really effective, must be a second nature to us. It is quite easy to give people a second nature, however unnatural, if you catch them early enough. There is no belief, however grotesque and even villainous, that cannot be made a part of human nature if it is inculcated in childhood and not contradicted in the child’s hearing.

Marxists are confident that victory is now at hand. The tactics to achieve that victory are societal chaos and confusion. Their weapons include disinformation and propaganda, language distortion, violence, moral degradation, and sexual perversion.

Sex education, once presented in high school as clinical biology, became graphic and presented in elementary schools. Without parents’ knowledge, children are encouraged to “discover” that they are homosexual. Drag queen story hours target toddlers in libraries and kindergartens—even on military bases.

Books like Gender Queer and It’s Perfectly Normal are included among the reading material for young kids. Curricula include gems like the film Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn.Heather Has Two Mommies and Daddy, Papa, and Me undermine the concept of traditional families. Teachers promote gender dysphoria. Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) instills an early obsession with sex in small children. “Sexual diversity” in children’s entertainment is also key to grooming them. When the fruit of explicit sex education is pregnancy, schools arrange abortions without parents’ knowledge.

The United Nations Population Fund stresses that CSE needs to start very young, in preschool. But the Center for Family and Human Rights, [a conservative advocacy organization founded in 1997 to challenge UN policies], warns that CSE teaches “very young children about sexual pleasure, sexual orientation, gender identity, and access to and use of contraceptives, abortion, and other drugs and medical procedures.” …

United Families International, [a nonprofit organization founded in 1978 working internationally to advocate maintaining and strengthening the family] is even more explicit in its warning: CSE teaches “children how to have sexual pleasures; whether…to themselves or with a partner…. At a United Nations conference, a moderator said, ‘If we can just get this…program into every school and fully implemented around the globe…it would solve all our problems!’… Its main purposes are to elevate such things as masturbation, oral and anal sex, and techniques for achieving an orgasm. And basically, teaching our children to be gender and sexual rights activists.”

Controlling the minds of our kids is the ultimate strategic terrain. Without the complete programming of America’s children—weaponizing them—Marxism cannot win in America.

There cannot be an armistice in this war. There can be only one victor.

Karen McKay speaks with objective military precision and a seasoned military voice. Her dire warning echoes ancient military strategist Sun Tzu, The Art of War:

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

Political Correctness is the Incubator of Islamism

Time and again, we are told by the politically correct “experts” not to worry about Islam posing a threat to our way of life. We are repeatedly lectured that only a very small minority of Muslims are troublemakers who are giving the peaceful masses of Muslims a bad name. We are also informed that the terrorists, who happened to be Muslims, are the disaffected and the young. And not to worry, since as the fire of youth turns to ashes of old age the rebellious will mellow, as they always have.

With heavy assurances like this, coming from so many know-it-all authoritative figures, we can sleep soundly without the aid of sleeping pills. After all, people reason that these pundits are “experts” whose job is to know and tell it like it is. Those who voice contrary views must be a bunch of racists and alarmist hatemongers. Who is right?

Wouldn’t it be more prudent to let the facts settle the matter rather than blindly accepting either position? Of course, it would, except for one huge problem. In the face of threats, people tend to go to the mind’s medicine cabinet and take a few denial and rationalization pills, in the same way, that it is the aspirin bottle they turn to when a headache strikes. Why not? We are the Easy Species. We love effortless, quick, and simple solutions. And that’s not invariably bad. It has given us all kinds of labor and time-saving devices.

Yet, the Islam problem is very real and deadly. Neither the pronouncements of the experts nor the tranquilizing pills of the mind can make it go away. It is here, and it shows every sign of imposing itself on us.

Let us look at some of the facts.

  • Not every Muslim wears an explosive vest ready to detonate amid a crowd of innocent civilians, yet there are more volunteers for the mission than there are explosive vests. The Islamic Republic, for instance, hasn’t even officially joined this form of jihad. Yet, by its own admission, it has over 10,000 volunteers trained and ready to be deployed, and thousands more are queuing to join in. This time around, the jihadists heading for Allah’s heaven might come fitted with nice little suitcases of dirty bombs instead of the bulky explosive vests. Recall that it took only 19 of these killers to launch the aerial mass murder of 9/11 that killed 3,000 people, shattered our open, trusting way of life, and cost us billions of dollars.
  • The jihadists are not confined to a minority of disaffected Muslim youth. How young were Bin Laden, his deputy doctor of death Al Zawahiri, Mullah Omar of the Taliban, Khamenei, and the late Rafsanjani of Iran, to name a few? How disaffected are they? Muhammad Ata, leader of the 19 airborne thugs and the decapitator of Wall Street Journal reporter Pearl, was somewhat younger yet well-healed and Western-educated.
  • Just coin some terms such as the “Melting Pot” or “Multiculturalism,” and you have the problem solved? Roll out the red carpet for the immigrant Muslims, treat them as you would your own citizens, give them stipends, medical care, and free education and they will integrate seamlessly into society. No such thing at all. The idea of Melting Pot may work with people who come from different lands to make the new country their home. The Islamists, on the other hand, come with the belief that they already own the place and want to make it part of the Ummah. Some forty percent of second and third-generation Muslim Britons reject British democracy, express their allegiance to Islam, and want to live under Sharia. So much for the Melting Pot comfort pill.
  • The new Islamist arrivals take advantage of the provisions of the most benign system known to humanity, democracy, to implode it from within. Muslims, by sheer numbers, will soon be in a position to vote out democracy in many countries. They are already doing that in bits and pieces. They are imposing many of their values in a number of societies, even while they are in the minority. Politicians, hungry for votes and devoted to the practice of political correctness, bend backward to accede to Islamists’ demands.
  • As for Multiculturalism, it is even more of a delusion than the Melting Pot myth. It is a second-generation Comfort Pill. Since the Melting Pot proved to be worse than a placebo, the politically correct gave us the new pill. A glance at Europe shows how Multiculturalism in fact has served as the incubator of Islamism in no time at all. Europe’s Multiculturalism is rapidly birthing a Uniculturalism if the Islamists’ medieval way of life can be dignified as a culture.
  • Respect for diversity, separation of religion and state, and freedom of belief and expression are pillars of democracy, yet anathema to Islam. In no Islamic land do you find an ecumenical organization. It is only in non-Islamic countries that the shameless duplicitous Muslim, be he an imam, a mullah, or a regular run-of-the-mill faithful of Allah, meekly participates in ecumenical feel-good gatherings.
  • To Muslims, no other religion is deemed worthy of recognition, much less accommodation. There is not a single church, synagogue, or Buddhist temple in all of Saudi Arabia. They are barred. The Islamic Republic of Iran’s raft of genocidal pogroms includes the heinous practice of bulldozing even the cemeteries of its Baha’i religious minority. The Islamic tyranny of the mullahs imprisons Christian Iranians for celebrating Christmas. Egypt denies its own citizens identity cards for refusing to lie and fake their religious beliefs or disbelief. The ID cards are required for education, securing work, receiving medical care, and just about every right of citizenship. Without it, a citizen is literally subjected to slow death.
  • In Islam, only Muslim men and, to a lesser extent, Muslim women are entitled to certain rights. All non-Muslims, including the so-called people of the book, namely Christians and Jews, are at best second-class subjects, subjects who must pay the back-breaking Jizya, poll tax, for their “sin” of not converting to Islam. So, as Islam makes its inroads in new lands, as its membership swells through explosive birth and conversion, secular democracies will be inevitably replaced by Islamism with its stone-age Sharia laws. The best offer that Islam will make is to spare the non-Muslim’s life if he puts on the heavy yoke of Jizya for the rest of his living days.
  • Not to worry about the horrific things that are happening on the other side of the world? If Muslims act heinously toward non-Muslims, it is just the way things are in those countries and it is hardly any of our business. This is the same attitude that set the Islamization of Europe on a seemingly irreversible track. One European country after another is rapidly buckling under the weight of Islamism.
  • Most importantly, not to worry about the Islamization of our country? After all, Muslims are about 6-7 million minority in a population of nearly 300 million, you reason? That even a smaller number of these Muslims are hothead radicals, while the majority is just like everyone else? However, small minorities can overwhelm the majority by use of coercion and deadly force. Islamists are notorious for their dedication to the use of force to achieve their aims. The Taliban were a very small minority in Afghanistan; the Islamists were a tiny faction in the 1979 Islamic Revolution of Iran. Both overwhelmed the masses and imposed their reign of terror. The terrorist Hamas is also a “minority” in number, yet it rules the Palestinian Territory. Hizballah of Lebanon is a minority, yet it has taken the country to the verge of destruction.
  • Islamists are Islam’s locomotive that takes the wrecking-ball Islamic train on its demolition course. Islam and democracy are incompatible. As democracies practice their magnificent accommodating belief, they knowingly or unknowingly lay the track for the advancing wrecking train of Islam. We, in the United States of America, must resist Islamism while it is still gathering momentum unless we wish to end up in the same fix as the Europeans. ,
  • We, in the United States, further need to embark on a comprehensive legal, educational, and social campaign to eradicate the deadly plague of Islam. By effective action, we even save those peaceful Muslims from their own affliction. I am not hatemongering. I would love to see all Muslims become ex-Muslims and full-fledged members of a diverse, tolerant, democratic society. It is a statement of fact about what Islam is. Islam is a highly communicable pandemic-violent disease that demands urgent and serious containment.

Europe is already badly infected with Islamism. It is the coal miners’ canary. It tells us that the next stop is America.

We must act and act now.

We must not sacrifice our cherished way of life and the lives of our children at the altar of political correctness: the incubator of Islamofascism.

The Issue is Never the Issue. The Issue is Always the Revolution!

“The Issue is Never the Issue. The Issue is Always the Revolution.” — Sol Alinsky


I was shocked to hear so many say about the demonstrations on campus. This is unprecedented. It never happened in America.  As a college student in the 60’s we learned Sol Alinsky’s Rules.  We followed them to a tee. We organized and demonstrated.

David Horowitz writes,” This focus on power was illustrated by an anecdote recounted in a New Republic article that appeared during Obama’s presidential campaign: “When Alinsky would ask new students why they wanted to organize, they would invariably respond with selfless bromides about wanting to help others. Alinsky would then scream back at them that there was a one-word answer: ‘You want to organize for power!’ In Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote: “From the moment an organizer enters a community, he lives, dreams, eats, breathes, sleeps only one thing, and that is to build the mass power base of what he calls the army.” The issue is never the issue. The issue is always building the army. The issue is always the revolution.”

There was one major difference from our marches and demonstrations today. We knew what we were fighting for. Our demand was simple. END THE DRAFT. If a reporter asked our answer was the same, END THE DRAFT.  ( for the Vietnam War.) We could also find Vietnam on a map. In the end of the era, many of us learned that we were being misguided into a place where the ends justified the means, lies became the new truth. This group was a morality free society that would say or do anything to maintain power.

In the 70’s I learned that there was not any difference between the Democrat or Republican party. It didn’t matter who was in office, nothing changed. I knew it was happening but I didn’t know who was involved. Then I read this from Richard Nixon:

The press is the enemy

The press is the enemy

The press is the enemy

The establishment is the enemy

The professors are the enemy

The professors are the enemy

Write that on the blackboard 100 times and never forget it.

Richard Nixon, Dec 14, 1972

I was attending the New School at that time and I learned all about subliminal message, the place of the press in society and the real purpose of marketing. Marketing was used to create division.  Like: Keeping up with the Jone’s pitted neighbor against neighbor.

Planned obsolescence of products made sure there would always be a sale. Creating the desire that the people want it so much they throw all logic and reason out and replace that with impulse buying.  In order to create that desire, you must destroy the old. Out with the old, in with the new. The issue then became one thought, one goal, everyone on the same page. No one being better than another, except the leaders who determined everything. These leaders never look back to see the results of their mandates, They don’t care because the goal is not greatness, the goal is destruction by any means necessary,

How do you get millions of people to follow you? You lie. You use school to educate in mediocrity not excellence. You create followers, not leaders.  And so I learned that everything I though I knew was a lie.  Nixon was right. I as teaching then. I noticed that the text were changing. Everything had to relate to climate/environment. Everything had to be sustainable and follow a United Nations plan that no one talked about because it didn’t make sense.  Sustainability meant no growth. That didn’t make sense. Until now.

For a long time I thought I was the only one who thinks like this. But technology and the multiple ways we can communicate has changed my opinion. We are many, they are few.  I thought Cherie Currie – Lead singer for band The Runaways said it best:

“It used to be PUNK, R&R to vote Democrat. I fell for it. But when your party demands you live in fear, squallier, beyond your means by just buying groceries, gasoline, disrespecting our veterans, our police, our elderly, supporting CRIMINALS, chaos, riots, Hamas, FAILING Israel, demeaning us at every turn! HURTING our CHILDREN! Wasting OUR MONEY. Ineptitude with every policy! Lies and more lies.. NO MORE! The Democrat Party can KISS MY A$$. They don’t give a damn. That’s true. Voting Dem used to be cool. But now, it just makes you a FOOL.”

Sadly Cherrie is right. The demonstrations at the universities are a perfect example of the damage we have done to our children by giving them no boundaries, no competition, no morality, no truth, no value and not holding them accountable. We have totally destroyed a generation. They can never be leaders. If it wasn’t so sad it it would be funny. Look at some of their demands:

  1. Gluten-free meals
  2. Voxx bottled water
  3. Total dismantling of Western Civilization
  4. All toxic men transition to female
  5. All attractive women transitioned to male
  6. All college campuses are gun free, meat free, Jew free zones
  7. Unlimited Ben and Jerry’s ice cream
  8. Donald Trump admits to guilty to all charges
  9. US government funds relocations to Hamas controlled Gaza

Victor Davis Hanson asks, “Are the universities worth saving?”

I pray that this is not the best America has to offer. But I have hope that the American people will not be fooled and sucked into the lies. We the people are in control of term limits. Simply stop voting for the same trash over and over. America is on a path of failure. If you want change, make it happen.

We can not forget the past. Bill Federer is my guest this week and he will tell us about the past riots of America. I have hope because many grass roots candidates are stepping up.  Gerry James will be this week’s grass roots candidate. If you know a candidate running for any office in Florida, tell them to contact me for an interview.

This is important so I am repeating it.

The W.H.O. the Globalist UN World Health Organization is setting this policy and the RINOS in the House  made it possible by giving our borrowed tax dollars to the WHO. . The WHO decided they should control world health under any emergency they declare like climate change. I do not want our legislators to give away our national sovereignty or money to a group of power hungry control freaks in the UN. Tell your legislators. Communicate with congress, join the Sovereignty Coalition today. 

Globalists want Money, Control and Power. They can only get Power if we give it to them. Don’t give them yours. Challenge them with the truth. Doing Nothing is Affirmation. The Regime will not go quietly, Prepare.  Share with your 5.   So join me on the radio with guest  and you will learn about some of the riots of America.
