A Lesson from Europe is Not Learned [+Video]

History is the mother of all sciences, and even a short history of the two main religions opens our insight to the nature of today’s reality—we are at war! To win this war or any war, you must identify your enemy and know his nature. The Obama foreign policy hasn’t recognized this simple premise and the devastating results are what we are witnessing today. The FBI Director is right: The Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL Daesh) is more dangerous than Al-Qaeda. I would widen the narrative: we are in a long and bloody war from attacks of 9/11/2001 to Paris, and Brussels. The West has given the enemy ample time to develop its long-range strategy—that evidence is plainly before us to see. ISIS indeed represents an existential threat to Western civilization, because it is a unified force of Soviet Fascism and Islamism.

A Short History of Two Religions

The current dispute of whether we are in a clash of civilizations is an integral part of today’s politics. Yes, is the short, direct answer. To give a comprehensive answer takes us to world history again. The largest religions in the world are Christianity and Islam; they developed from completely different roots, and then took different paths to get to where they are today. Judeo-Christian religions were not free of violence during the Middle Ages as they began to see God’s plan of salvation differently. However, a reformation movement in the Catholic Church has been going on constantly since. Dissidents have been free to pursue their ideas without the threat of violence.

Despite some violence in Europe in the 13th century, Western civilization (Christianity) gave the world the Magna Carta in 1215. In the year 2015 humanity commemorated 800 years of the Magna Carta—the cornerstone of Western civilization. America is a child of the Magna Carta. A brilliant constellation of individuals we call Our Founding Fathers created an exceptional political system and the government we call the United States of America.

Islam has never gone through a process of reformation since the days of Mohammed in the 7th century. Islam still sees the world the world as Mohammed did, and will use any means available to bring it into submission to his teachings. No reforms have been put into place to curb the violent path it is on. Therefore, we are the witnesses of a clash of deeply ingrained cultures and it is very hard to find peaceful coexistence under these circumstances. Yet, there are two other factors not discussed by anybody. Current Muslim leaders like President of Egypt al-Sissi, who liquidated the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is now calling for the reformation of Islam. He is supported by many other Muslims. Yet, there is the second factor—a long-term Soviet/Russian infiltration.

WATCH: This Muslim leader just came to Donald Trump’s defense in a way that shocked everyone:

Imam Nidal Alsayyed of Beaumont, Texas, said the government should go even further than Trump’s proposal and establish a ban on accepting Syrian refugees of any religion. He said those actions are necessary “when it comes to peace and safety.”

These words didn’t shock me, I am in a total agreement with Imam Alsayyed, but there is a caveat, I mentioned before. America’s tragedy is that our President belongs to the opposite camp of thinkers and has shared his ideology with Vladimir Putin and the Castro’s brothers. The opinion of Imam Alsayyed ought to be known to the world, he and President of Egypt el-Sissi think alike and that is the sign of hope for the West! Both of these Muslim leaders are right—there is great confusion among the religious and the secular, thus the current predicament in the world clearly reflects it. Imam Alayyed is right:

“I believe there is a great confusion and lack of understating nationally and among Muslims themselves for what Mr. Trump is calling for. Refugees in general have no clear identity or belief. They are seeking shelter and opportunity; but America cannot take this risk NOW!” he said. Alsayyed said banning Syrian refugees of all religions might prove eye-opening. “My advice to Trump is to stop differentiating among Christian vs. Muslim refugees; only because he may get surprised to see all refugees claiming to be Christians!” he wrote and elaborated on his comments via Facebook. “I only said what I believe is right. Trump is not against American Muslims; He is against any new Muslim immigrants (refugees and non-refugees)! There is a big difference here!” he wrote.

The Russian connection

I’d like to remind you the words of the KGB General Pacepa to illustrate my second factor: “According to Andropov… the Muslims had a taste for nationalism, jingoism, and victimology. Their illiterate, oppressed mobs could be whipped up to a fever pitch. Terrorism and violence against Israel and her master, American Zionism, would flow naturally from the Muslims’ religious fervor, Andropov sermonized.” You can see for yourself  in 2016.

Imam Alsayyed is hinting on my second factor—Soviet/Russian long-term infiltration. To grasp the Imam’s idea, we have to turn to history of Stalinism again, If we analyze the goals of Communism and Islam, we will find that exact common agenda—domination of the world by all cost. The first Soviet leader who noticed and saw the benefits of that unity for Communism was Joseph Stalin. Brought up within the Muslim culture and getting the assignment to be an organizer of the Marxist groups in the Caucuses, Stalin had traveled the area, including the Northern part of Iran. The idea to use Islam in the fight against Western civilization was crystalized then in his earlier political career.

A violent mixture of Soviet Fascism and Muslim Jihad was initiated and established by Stalin much later. The end of WWII had brought a notorious Muslim Brotherhood from Berlin to Moscow. It was time when Stalin’s old idea of infiltrating Islam came true. As we know today “the Soviet Union hastened to set up points of liaison in the East; and in so doing, Stalin, just before his death, invited Amin al-Husseini (d. 1973), the Mufti of Jerusalem and friend of Hitler, to Moscow.”[2] Adding the description of the Muslim Brotherhood Part 1: The Genesis of Euro-Islamic Racism by Hans-Peter Raddatz

For your information, the Muslim culture was the main factor in the creation of the violent system we called Soviet Socialism. That exact system was brought to radicalize the Middle East by the Soviets during 1950-1990s. Since then Islam has been infiltrated, politicized, and equipped with the Soviet long-term strategy of war against Western civilization. The Muslim Brotherhood was established as an Islamic Politburo, the beginning spark in generating Extreme Muslim Jihad.

Arafat was the first molding of a Soviet style leader; he was recruited by the KGB in 1957, followed by Ayman al-Zawahiri, Bin-Laden, Abu al-Zarqawi, Anwar al- Awlaki, and finally al- Baghdadi. The logical chain of the leaders in space and time leads you to other terrorist groups. Hamas, Boko Haram, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, are just some of the many other names under the Soviet/Russian supervision, and finally to ISIS, which has required special research to prove the truth of what was said above.

If we continue to research the ISIS nature, we will find that it is a final creation of the Russian Stalinist Intel in 2009-2010. The foundation of the terrorist state is its leadership. The field commanders of ISIS consist of many former Soviet trained operatives: They are former Sunni Saddam Hussein’s secret service members, trained by the Soviets, former Soviet citizens from the Muslim republics (Turkmens, Chechens, and others), who were trained by Russian Intel. Like Hamas and Hezbollah, they all have an immediate connections with Russian military and intelligence. When you are talking about the solidarity of these dictators, it is the same solidarity of the current terrorist groups and ISIS leadership with Moscow. There is no surprise for me about a very effective ISIS propaganda online—the Soviet actors of 1970-80s have returned to their dirty profession in ISIS.

The conclusion is clear—ISIS is an amalgamation of a totalitarian Stalinism and Islamism, adhered to the ideology of Soviet Fascism, fighting Western civilization. The confirmation is the attack of 9/11, Paris, Brussels, and many others ahead of us. This is a result of Islam, which is missing thirteen centuries of developments and reforms. For your information: Russia has a visa waver, granted by the Obama administration. Just watch for the Soviet/Russian dirty tricks around the globe, described by me earlier—the Democrats working in cahoots with the Andropov agenda, inciting protests against the Republican candidates and fighting the First Amendment, the corner stone of Western civilization…

Islamic State: Brussels and Paris slaughters were rehearsals for ‘big’ attack inside U.S.

No surprise here. The Islamic State issued this call in September 2014: “If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be.”

“EXCLUSIVE – Top Jihadist Claims Brussels, Paris Are Terror Rehearsals for ‘Big’ Attack Inside U.S.,” Breitbart Jerusalem, March 26, 2016:

TEL AVIV – The deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels last week and in Paris last November are dress rehearsals for a coming “big” attack inside the United States, a leading Islamic State-allied militant claimed in an exclusive interview.

Abu al-Ayna al-Ansari, a Salafist movement senior official in the Gaza Strip, made the claim in a pre-recorded, hour-long interview to air in full on Sunday on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” the popular weekend talk radio program broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 AM in Philadelphia.  Klein doubles as Breitbart’ssenior [sic] investigative reporter and Jerusalem bureau chief.

Ansari is a well-known Gazan Salafist jihadist allied with Islamic State ideology.  During the interview with Klein, Ansari seemed to be speaking as an actual IS member, repeatedly using the pronoun “we” when referring to IS and even seemingly making declarations on behalf of IS.

IS has been reluctant to officially declare its presence in Gaza for fear of a Hamas clampdown, but the group is known to be active in the coastal enclave and Ansari is a suspected IS leader.  IS-aligned militants have taken responsibility for recent rocket fire from Gaza aimed at Israel.

Klein asked Ansari whether IS maintains cells inside the U.S. and if the terrorist group is “planning anything in America.”

Ansari responded:

Aaron, the battle with America is a very long one, a very tough one, a very hard one. America has a black record with the mujahedeen, and this black record will not be purified but with blood, and lots of blood. Only blood will cleanse what America did to the mujahedeen. And I can confirm that our leadership made it very clear that what happened in Paris, what happened in Brussels was only a small rehearsal before the big thing that will happen in America.

This is the commitment; this is the engagement of our leadership to the mujahedeen. I cannot give details and the truth is that I don’t know the small details – how many agents we have and where we have them. This depends on our leaders, the Caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and the general military commander, Abu Omar al-Shishani. They will decide when and where to strike in the United States.

But I can tell you that when we are in touch with our different components, with the leaders of the Islamic State.  They confirm, they make it very sure and very clear that it is only a question of time when there will be a strike in America.  And as I said before, what you saw in Paris, what you saw in Brussels will be only a small rehearsal in comparison with what will happen in the United States….

Immediately after Brussels Muslim group demands FBI cancel counter-terror program

“Foremost, the SRC is problematic as it continues to target Arabs and Muslims, and turns our religious leaders, mental health professionals, teachers and dedicated community members into informants for the FBI.” If they were loyal to the U.S. and against jihad terror, they would be willing informants.

ADC

“US Muslim Anti-Discrimination Group ‘Demands’ FBI Cancel Informant Program,” by Ron Brynaert, Daily Caller, March 26, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

In an email sent to supporters, a prominent US anti-discrimination Muslim group announced that it’s “requesting a meeting with FBI Director James Comey” and is “demanding” that it cancel an informant program reportedly set to “be formally introduced next week.”

“The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee demands that the FBI cancel the launch of its controversial ‘Shared Responsibility Committee’ program,” the email states. “Since learning about the program last fall, ADC has frequently expressed serious concerns about the initiative, which is part of the government’s Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) program.”

Last November, the Washington Post reported, “The FBI has designed an unusual game-style Web site about extremism meant to be used by teachers and students to help the agency spot and prevent radicalization of youth, say Muslim and Arab advocacy groups who were briefed by the FBI on the program and fear it will foment discrimination against Muslims.”

The “Don’t Be A Puppet” website — aimed at schools to help “keep youth from falling prey to online recruiting by terrorists” — was put on hold after the ADC and other “members of the Muslim and Arab advocacy groups invited to preview the effort complained that despite being described as combatting ‘violent extremism,’ it frames the topic heavily through the lens of Islam and will lead to profiling of Muslim youth.”

The “Shared Responsibility Committees” (SRCs) were also referred to at an FBI meeting last November, “which the Muslim and Arab participants said are proposed groups of community leaders and FBI representatives who could discuss cases of specific youths.”

In the email, which was sent Friday, the ADC claims “it raises numerous civil rights and civil liberties concerns and has been planned in secrecy. Foremost, the SRC is problematic as it continues to target Arabs and Muslims, and turns our religious leaders, mental health professionals, teachers and dedicated community members into informants for the FBI.”

It continues: “The FBI and other government agencies have failed to be transparent and forthcoming with details about the program, which the FBI packages as a form of community engagement. The SRCs expand the FBI’s surveillance powers, under the guise of an ‘interventionist’ program. Similar programs were implemented in Europe, and they failed miserably. In implementing the program, the FBI has ignored history and the concerns raised by community members. Instead the FBI has relied on fringe groups from within the community. These groups are recipients of government grants used to implement such programs and do not work in the best interest of the community.”

Former CIA officer Clare M. Lopez — who is now the Vice President for Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy, and a foreign policy adviser for Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz — recently complained that the FBI was the “real puppet” being led by a “Muslim Brotherhood puppeteer.”…

Islam’s Hatred of Dogs and Cruelty to Animals — on The Glazov Gang

America is more Islamic than my home country…

“America is more Islamic than my home country of Morocco.” My Muslim friend said this with great joy and assurance all the while I was trying not to appear stunned. How could someone who grew up in an Islamic country for the first 25 years of his life, move and live in America for the next 25 years, prosper with his business and family, come to the conclusion that America is more Islamic than a Muslim country?

Hayat sat in the shade and described his younger years of being raised in the Islamic culture.  Like many Muslim youth, his family attended the local mosque because that was what good Muslims do.  However, like many Muslims and many Christians, his faith was only a thin veneer of going through the motions.

As his fellow Muslims were flowing in the nearby mosque he quietly answered the questions I posed without any sense of contempt toward me and was genuinely interested in trying to correct misperceptions I might have about Islam.

He shared his story of coming to America 25 years earlier, meeting his wife (Muslim) and starting his business that slowly grew into a successful trading business that took him back to his home country on a regular basis.  A family man with several children he talked about his “re-conversion” back to Islam as he prospered economically. In his mind, the only explanation for this was Allah choosing to bless him and therefore as his wealth grew, so did his faith in Islam and Allah.

“When I visit Morocco all I see is corruption, poverty, violence and suffering among the people…that is not Islam.  As we sit here in the shade we sit in peace, we are comfortable, there is no poverty to speak of and Allah has blessed me with great economic gain…that is how Islam is to be, peaceful, prosperous and enjoyable.” And there you have it…Islam in a nutshell…”submit” and you will prosper.

As I felt my head exploding I refrained from pointing out to him much of America’s culture would not be allowed in a truly Islamic country, i.e. equal rights for women and LGBT,  freedom to choose something other than Allah, freedom to speak or a thousand other things Sharia forbids. My follow up question brought an even more surprising answer, “So you think in 30-50 years the US will replace democracy with Sharia law?”

He quickly but politely discarded my suggestion with a wave of his hand and said, “no, no, too political” which was quickly followed up with this chilling statement, “…but, in 300 years, yes, Sharia will be law of the land in the US.”  He said this with the certainty of someone who knows the sun will rise in the east tomorrow.

This unique glimpse into the mind of an American Muslim revealed two fundamental problems that Americans face when discussing Islam with Muslims and non-Muslims. American’s think in terms of hours, days or months but rarely attempt to imagine our culture or country with the yardstick of a century, much less 300 years.  To a Muslim, Islam has been around for 1400 years. A country that has been around for 250 years will be just another country that is absorbed into the Islamic tsunami that began 1400 years ago and continues today.  After all just 100 years after Muhammad’s death the map of Islamic conquered lands stretched from Afghanistan to Spain.

The second issue is we assume refugees and/or immigrants from the Middle East living here will find our freedoms and democracy preferable to any other ideology. The fact that 51% of Muslims living in the U.S. responded positively in a recent poll to this statement, “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah” should dispel the myth that among Muslims a large majority prefer democracy over Sharia law. Add to this a Pew Research poll that showed 60% of Muslim-Americans under 30 are more loyal to Islam than America. Where do the majority of jihadists come from?  This very demographic group.

Hayat’s neighbors point to him as the “peaceful Muslim” who is the poster child for “all” Muslims and shuts down any questioning of Islam as a violent ideology by invoking, “but my neighbor Hayat is no terrorist” into the conversation.  In reality Hayat is more dangerous than the jihadist suicide bomber. Hayat knows the truth behind Islam and is comfortable with that fact.  His non-Muslim friends are clueless.

There was little doubt in my mind that Hayat would not be strapping a suicide vest on his chest as we departed. As for his children or grandchildren, becoming jihadists, I’m not so sure.  Hayat and I departed on good terms, he returned to his car, I assume drove home and enjoyed an evening with his family speaking about the interesting infidel he met that afternoon.

Hayat sleeps well as a believer in the inevitability of Islam while his non-Muslim neighbors and friends walk around in ignorance and bliss. Time is on Islam’s side and there will be plenty of other jihadists willing to strike terror in the hearts of non-believers and force them into submission.   Hayat knows the truth about Islam but more Americans are learning the truth.  However will they have the courage to share it without fear of being labeled a “hater” or Islamophobic? Our children’s and grandchildren’s future will be determined by our courage to speak the truth about Islam.

Brussels: What We Can Learn From Today’s Slaughter

Today, terrorists attacked Brussels both the airport and a metro station in the center of the city. Here’s what we can learn from the attacks.

Europe is reeling from the latest terrorist attacks, this time against Brussels, now confirmed to be a terrorist attacks.  Three blasts have been reported so far, two in the Zaventem airport and one at the Maelbeek metro station some 500 meters from the European Parliament.

Here are three takeaways from this most recent tragic attack.

This Fight Impacts Everyone

The attack in Brussels follows Saturday’s attack on Istanbul by an Islamic State suicide bomber that killed four. Countries attacked so far this year by Islamist terrorist either working for groups or in lone wolf attacks (and remember it’s only March) include:

That’s attacks on 26 countries across North America, South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and East Asia in just three months. This is a problem everywhere. It is no longer possible to argue it doesn’t impact you or that there is nothing you can do about it.

Terrorism Works If You Let it

This one is difficult to internalize. Terrorism operates by creating an outsized reaction to a highly publicized event. It works to create “terror” in a population by stripping citizens of their feeling of safety, inculcating an atmosphere where people feel they can be attacked anywhere and at any time.

Societies respond with security measures designed to protect the citizenry and these can at times be heavy handed and worsen community relations, driving more people into the arms of terrorist groups. Public confusion and panic exacerbates the problem. One of the aims of groups like the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is to create a backlash of anti-Muslim bigotry and thus instigate a war between Muslims and everyone else. Chaos, hatred and confusion is the favored working environment of terrorists and Islamists since it enables them to advance their goals under the cover of the fog of war.

Muslim and non-Muslim groups working together against terrorism and the Islamist ideology which spawns it (as distinct from the religion of Islam) in a firm, calm and unified manner is therefore essential to a counter-extremism strategy in civil society.

This will not stop until the ideology is defeated

The countries that have been attacked do not share a cohesive foreign policy platform or common causes except being opposed to the ideology of Islamism.

This Islamist ideology, which seeks to conquer the world and implement sharia governance under a theocratic Islamist caliphate gives people who are drawn to acts of violence an outlet for their grievances and an opportunity to justify crimes on an international scale.

In addition to the military steps needed to tackle violent groups, an international civil society effort to correctly label, deconstruct and intellectually discredit the underlying ideology that justifies such heinous acts will bring an end to the international wave of violence committed in its name.

U.S. knew where girls kidnapped by Boko Haram were, did nothing to rescue them

Why not? Would rescuing them have been “Islamophobic”?

140512-boko-haram-girls-615a_95a5aaaabe54356e927c52230e8da198“Western governments KNEW where 80 Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram were – but no-one tried to rescue them,” by Keiligh Baker, MailOnline, March 20, 2016:

The US and British governments knew where at least 80 of the Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram were but failed to launch a rescue mission, it has been revealed.

Terrorists stormed a secondary boarding school in the remote town of Chibok in Borno state, northern Nigeria in April 2014, and seized 276 girls who were preparing for end-of-year exams.

Although 57 of the girls managed to escape the rest have remained missing and have not been heard from or seen since apart from in May that year, when 130 of them appeared in a Boko Haram video wearing hijabs and reciting the Koran.

Terrorists stormed a Government Secondary School in the remote town of Chibok in Borno state, northern Nigeria in April 2014, seizing 276 girls who were preparing for end-of-year exams.

Dr Andrew Pocock, the former British high commissioner to Nigeria, has now revealed that a large group of the missing girls were spotted by British and American surveillance officials shortly after their disappearance, but experts felt nothing could be done.

He told The Sunday Times that Western governments felt ‘powerless’ to help as any rescue attempt would have been too high risk – with Boko Haram terrorists using the girls as human shields.

Dr Pocock said: ‘A couple of months after the kidnapping, fly-bys and an American eye in the sky spotted a group of up to 80 girls in a particular spot in the Sambisa forest, around a very large tree, called locally the Tree of Life, along with evidence of vehicular movement and a large encampment.’

He said the girls were there for at least four weeks but authorities were ‘powerless’ to intervene – and the Nigerian government did not ask for help anyway.

He said: ‘A land-based attack would have been seen coming miles away and the girls killed, an air-based rescue, such as flying in helicopters or Hercules, would have required large numbers and meant a significant risk to the rescuers and even more so to the girls.’

He added: ‘You might have rescued a few but many would have been killed. My personal fear was always about the girls not in that encampment — 80 were there, but 250 were taken, so the bulk were not there. What would have happened to them? You were damned if you do and damned if you don’t.’

In an investigation by Christina Lamb for the Sunday Times Magazine, Dr Pocock said the information was passed to the Nigerians but they made no request for help.

The Magazine has also seen brutal rape videos which show schoolgirls are being used as sex slaves by the terrorists.

Ms Lamb reports: ‘They film schoolgirls being raped over and over again until their scream become silent Os.’

Some of the girls who managed to escape told Ms Lamb they were kept in ‘women’s prisons’ where they were taught about Islam. Boko Haram fighters would visit and pick their wives.

The girls were powerless to resist as even then the men would be heavily armed. They were shown videos of people being raped, tortured and killed as a threat of what would happen to them if they tried to run away….

South Carolina: Bill would hold sponsors liable if Muslim migrants commit crimes

If you try to protect yourself from a jihad terror attack, you’re liable to be called “un-American” by Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper. Foes of the bill “say the measure is out of character for a state that often espouses the importance of Christian hospitality and loving your neighbor.” Is Christian hospitality, then, a mandate for suicide? A Christian must be hospitable even if doing so exposes him to deadly risk? Trying to prevent possible jihad terror attacks makes one un-Christian and un-American?

“South Carolina, New York State consider refugee registries,” by Jeffrey Collins, Associated Press, March 19, 2016:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — While Republican front-runner Donald Trump continues to make waves nationally for his comments about banning Muslims from traveling to the country, lawmakers in two very different states are proposing that all refugees register with the government.

Registration bills are being proposed in both New York State and in South Carolina, where if refugees commit an act of terrorism, their sponsors, under the bill, could be held liable.

The South Carolina lawmakers say they are less concerned about a possible constitutional challenge than a possible terrorist threat coming to the state.

Opponents, however, say the measure is out of character for a state that often espouses the importance of Christian hospitality and loving your neighbor.

“I want us to be who we have always been — a welcoming people,” said Sen. Kevin Johnson, D-Manning, who is helping lead the fight against the bill.

Sponsoring Sen. Kevin Bryant said the bill has three components: a registry of all refugees; civil liability for sponsors of refugees from counties considered state sponsors of terror by the federal government (currently Iran, Sudan and Syria) for crimes committed by refugees; a prohibition on the state spending any money on refugees and their families.

Bryant said the goal of the bill is to protect people’s safety. Nearly 850 refugees from a number of countries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East have come to South Carolina since 2010, with 87 arriving since last summer. The Anderson Republican said if only one of them were to conduct a terrorist attack it would be devastating.

Instead, he said people in South Carolina can show their compassion by giving to relief organizations that help refugees elsewhere.

“Why should we bring one refugee here when we could spend the same money and help 10 in their part of the world?” Bryant said.

A challenge to the South Carolina law is likely because the law singles people out by county of origin and seems bent toward discriminating against Muslims, said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the [Hamas-linked] Council on American-Islamic Relations.

“If it is not illegal, it is at least un-American,” Hooper said….

Why Resisting Islam [Fitnah] Is Worse Than Slaughter, Part II

The very fact that you are not a Muslim, and don’t want to be, after being called upon [Dawah], makes you unjust and [an] oppressor. This is called Fitnah, and Fitnah is worse than killing. Whenever you criticize Islam on the Net, you are committing Fitnah. Therefore, you are worse than a murderer, and your blood is Halal [Permissible].

A little more than a year ago, I wrote about the subject of Fitnah from an Islamic theological perspective, while pointing out that Fitnah is the Quranic phrase for what has been dubbed Islamophobia in the non-Islamic world.

This time, I would like to discuss the same subject, but from a more secular-political perspective. In other words, does the potent Quranic concept that Fitnah is worse than slaughter, have any application in the secular-political world outside of predominantly Islamic countries?

As you will see, the answer is, plainly, Yes. After reviewing the earlier article on Fitnah, you’ll also see that the bottom line, theologically, is that the serious moral crime of refusing to accept Islam (= Fitnah), is much greater than any possible moral crime involved in the slaughtering (or plundering) of non-Muslims for their unbelief.

Is this counter-intuitive to the non-Islamic (Western) mind? Absolutely. ‘That’s a pretty stark statement,’ you’ll say. Agreed, but it is nonetheless true, as attested by Islamic scholars clear back to the founding of Islam, more than 1,400 years ago. From the very beginning, Mohammed set the example of killing people for the crime of Fitnah, and his example has been followed ever since, often with unfathomable enthusiasm.

For our first example of what Fitnah is worse than slaughter looks like from a non-Islamic perspective (and why it is so important to recognize), let’s examine how the multi-generational theological conflict between Sunni and Shia Islam is described in the non-Islamic media.

In this particular event, the Sunni side was represented by Saudi Arabia, while the Shia side was represented by Iran. On January 20, 2016, the Tribune reported that Saudi Arabia had accused Iran of a nearly four-decade* record of “sedition, unrest and chaos,” and, as the international community tried to calm tensions between the regional rivals, tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran had reached a new high, when Riyadh and a number of its Arab allies cut diplomatic ties with Tehran.

*That is, since the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

In turn, Iran responded to the Saudi accusations by saying, “Some in Riyadh not only continue to impede normalisation, but are determined to drag the entire region into confrontation,” and that the Saudi kingdom was “driven by fear that its contrived Iranophobia was crumbling,” and “seems to fear that the removal of the smoke screen of the nuclear issue will expose the real global threat: its active sponsorship of violent extremism.”

Meanwhile, if we look deep inside this smokescreen of secular-political language, we’ll find a cup of hot, concentrated Fitnah, without any sugar.

How so? Because in Arabic, the word for “sedition, unrest and chaos,” as well as for “active sponsorship of violent extremism,” is Fitnah.

In fact, both sides are accusing the other of Fitnah, which, as we’ve already seen, is considered a serious crime, that is, a capital offense. In other words, it is a volatile accusation that can easily erupt into violence and war (which has happened, many times, in the past).

The irony of it all is as thick as cold maple syrup, because Iran and Saudi Arabia are not only accusing each other of exactly the same thing (Fitnah), but are also blinded to the 1,400 year-old cycle of violence they are both trapped in.

Of course, for simply pointing this out (yes, even if it’s true), I am also guilty of Fitnah.

Now, let’s shift gears from the Middle East, and take a look at a few examples of how the Quranic concept that Fitnah is worse than slaughter has found increasingly frequent expression in the secular-political (non-Islamic) world, i.e., in the West.

Once again, we have to keep in mind that in the secular-political (non-Islamic) world, Islamophobia has become the semantic equivalent of Fitnah. Thus, it follows that any form of Islamophobia (i.e., anything seen as critical of Islam, even if it’s true), is now considered a greater threat to the social order, than the acts of violence (either political or actual) that are committed by the followers of Islam.

Why is this important to understand? Because in real time, macro domestic- and foreign policies are being built on this concept. As the following examples will show, we are being subtly coerced (and/or not-so-subtly forced) to submit to this unconstitutional, emerging global social order, on a near-daily basis.

To begin, on June 23, 2015, the Center for Security Policy published the results of a survey on levels of support for Shariah law and Jihad among Muslims in America. The survey revealed that nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believed, “It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed,” and that nearly one-fifth of Muslims in America said that the use of violence was justified in order to make Shariah the law of the land in this country.

As may be expected, the survey was widely criticized when it was released, and is still being criticized to this very day. In fact, on March 17, 2016, the NY Times revealed that Frank Gaffney, Founder and President the Center for Security Policy, was part of a “high profile” coalition of experts that would be offering Senator Ted Cruz advice on foreign policy.

In response, the author of the NY Times article stated that “Mr. Cruz is utilizing the same expert that Mr. Trump cited when proposing a moratorium on Muslim immigration last year. Mr. Trump pointed to a Center for Security Policy poll that found a quarter of all Muslims thought that violence against Americans in the United States is justified as a part of global jihad. He was criticized at the time for justifying a controversial policy with a dubious survey.”

However, the survey is neither dubious, or deeply flawed, nor Islamophobic. As I so carefully pointed out in my July 17, 2015 article entitled In Defense of The Center for Security Policy 2015 Poll on American Muslims, “An analysis of 21 surveys conducted over a 10-year period reveals that the spectrum of opinions within the American Muslim community on Shariah law and the use of violence either to punish the enemies of Islam, or to make Shariah the law of the land, are exactly the same as the spectrum of opinions held by Muslims in the rest of the world.

I also added that, “Muslims in America are not an anomaly within the greater Islamic community (Ummah), nor do they depart significantly from the beliefs on Shariah and/or Jihad that are held by Muslims in the rest of the Islamic world. In other words, the CSP survey not only represents the views of Muslims nationwide, but globally as well.”

So, what does this all have to do with Fitnah being worse than slaughter? Evidently, it is now seen a much greater social-political crime (= Fitnah) to have the audacity to publish actual facts about the attitudes and beliefs of Muslims in America (and the world), than it is to (politically) slaughter those who simply point out that a significant portion of U.S. Muslims support the implementation of Shariah law, and the use of violence (Jihad) to do it.

To cite another example of Fitnah being worse than slaughter, on June 21, 2015, Juan Cole wrote an article entitled European Islamophobic Networks influenced Roof to Kill in Charleston.

In the article, Mr. Cole stated, “The Muslim-hatred of the Geert Wilders and Marine LePens in Europe, for which Daniel Pipes, and Pamela Geller, and the whole Islamophobic network are cheerleaders and enablers, was a key influence on Dylann Roof, according to his manifesto. These same hatemongers helped whip Norwegian white supremacist and terrorist Anders Brevik into a homicidal fever pitch in July of 2011, when he killed 77 Norwegians for allegedly being soft on Muslims.”

Dylann Roof killed nine African American Christians (not Muslims), while Anders Behring Brevik killed eight people (not Muslims) with a car bomb, then another 69 young people (not Muslims) at a Workers’ Youth League campground. Despite this, from a social-political perspective, Mr. Cole is slaughtering these European and American “hatemongers” and “Islamophobes,” by emphatically (and publicly) insisting that their intolerable “anti-immigrant, anti-Arab and anti-Muslim rhetoric” is directly responsible for pressure (Fitnah) within the disenfranchised Islamic community.

Three days after Mr. Cole’s article was published, we saw another horrifying example of Fitnah is worse than slaughter, when it was revealed that police in the U.K had known for five years that grooming gangs had targeted hundreds of Birmingham schoolgirls, all the while choosing not to alert the public.

In addition to highlighting the CSE [Child Sexual Exploitation] problem, the 120-page report, entitled Problem Profile: Operation Protection, which was made public only after a Freedom of Information request, added that “The predominant offender profile of Pakistani Muslim males…combined with the predominant victim profile of white females has the potential to cause significant community tensions. There is a potential for a backlash against the vast majority of law abiding citizens from Asian/Pakistani communities from other members of the community believing their children have been exploited. These factors, combined with an EDL [English Defense League] protest in Dudley in April [2010] and a general election in May could notably increase community tension.”

In other words, since revealing the truth about the CSE problem in Birmingham would have caused “community tensions” (Fitnah) and “backlash against law abiding citizens from the Asian/Pakistani communities,” the police chose instead to keep it secret. In doing so, they slaughtered (at least in a social-political sense), the lives of hundreds of young girls (and boys). Or, as calculated by the Birmingham police department, the Fitnah would have been greater than the slaughter.

To continue, we can also find an example of Fitnah is worse than slaughter in a very recent political event. On March 12, 2016, protesters managed to shut down Donald Trump’s Campaign event in Chicago. As reported in Progress Illinois, the mass protests held against Donald Trump in Chicago late Friday…forced the GOP presidential frontrunner to cancel his planned campaign event at the UIC Pavilion for safety reasons.

Then, after initially declining to criticize Donald Trump’s rhetoric toward the protesters at his rallies, all three of his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Gov. John Kasich (R-OH), implied (in carefully qualified statements), that Mr. Trump was at least partly responsible for the outbreaks of violence at his meetings.

Ironically, perhaps their consensus viewpoint was best summed up by Mr. Kasich, whose scheduled MSNBC town hall was also pre-empted by the chaos, when he issued a statement pinning the blame on Mr. Trump himself. “Tonight the seeds of division that Donald Trump has been sowing this whole campaign finally bore fruit, and it was ugly. Some let their opposition to his views slip beyond protest into violence, but we can never let that happen.”

Thus, according to his Republican rivals (not to mention his fiercely implacable Progressive Leftist opponents), it appears that Donald Trump is being held directly responsible for causing Fitnah, right here in America(!), as he campaigns to become President.

Moreover, rather than issuing forceful condemnations of the orchestrated political violence, it appears that Mr. Trump’s socio-political adversaries are more than willing to disregard the courtesies and protections provided by our Founding Fathers in the First Amendment, as they seek to slaughter (i.e., shut down and/or co-opt) the freedoms of expression that our forbears built into the American political process.

At this point, I’m sure the reader could easily cite other examples of how the malevolent Quranic concept of Fitnah is worse than slaughter has already diffused its way into the West (including America), so I will close with a final observation, derived from a recent interview that President Obama gave in the April 2016 issue of the Atlantic Magazine.

During the lengthy (and revealing) conversation, which is entitled, The Obama Doctrine, Unplugged, we learned that Obama believes that a “misplaced word, or a frightened look, or an ill-considered hyperbolic claim, could tip the country into panic,” the sort of panic that would “manifest itself in anti-Muslim xenophobia or in a challenge to American openness and to the constitutional order.”

In addition, we were informed that “Those who speak with Obama about jihadist thought say that he possesses a no-illusions understanding of the forces that drive apocalyptic violence among radical Muslims, but he has been careful about articulating that publicly, out of concern that he will exacerbate anti-Muslim xenophobia.”

This, my friends is a perfect summary of the Quranic concept of Fitnah is worse than slaughter. In his own words, our president tells us that he is less concerned about honestly addressing the threat of Jihad and slaughter, than he is about exacerbating any simmering anti-Muslim xenophobia, which is just a secular-political way of describing Fitnah.

Mr. President, some of us are no longer children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men. Some of us are also very aware that there is a growing threat in this world we live in, and that it has a name.

Pretending that it somehow doesn’t exist, or calling by some other name (xenophobia), or blaming us for being concerned, is not what we elected you to do.

In conclusion, the antidote to the rising political violence and threat of impending class warfare that we keep hearing about is, was, and always will be, Freedom of Speech.

Freedom of Speech is the bubbling peroxide that keeps the wounds of our political disagreements from becoming infected.

In the old days, it was “Come one, come all! Step right up, and have your say!” This invitation included the all-American pledge that I will listen to whatever you have to say (even if I don’t like it), and that you will listen to whatever I have to say (even if you don’t like it).

Today, things are different, and we are faced with uncertainty about the future of our beloved Republic.

If we lose our way, and allow this liberating socio-political contract to be destroyed, then we will inevitably see something like Quran 2.191 play out right in front of us, as our own countrymen become violently animated by the belief that Fitnah is worse than slaughter, as they forcefully insist that the use of intimidation and violence for political gain should override the will of the people, and the Constitution itself.

Believe me, I hope I’m wrong, and I’ll do my part to help keep this from ever happening in America.

However, even in these modern, secular times, it is still true that, Every kingdom that is divided against itself will be destroyed, and every house and city that is divided against itself will not stand.

It is also still true that, No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other.

PETA, Putin and the Islamic State object to Trump ad showing Hillary barking

The organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has objected to the Trump Campaign’s latest ad featuring Hillary Clinton barking like a dog. Featured in the ad are Russian President Vladimir Putin and a soldier of the Islamic State holding a knife.

Here is the ad:

Ingrid E. Newkirk, the co-founder and president of PETA, issued the following statement after viewing the Trump ad:

I and the staff at PETA were shocked to see the Trump campaign making fun of Hillary Clinton barking like a dog. Hillary, by portraying a dog, deserves our protection from those who would use her in political advertisements. This is the worst case of animal abuse I have seen since founding PETA.

Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way. Hillary’s barking certainly fits into the category of entertainment.

I and PETA’s 3 million members, many of them dog owners, demand that the Trump campaign immediately remove this ad from airing ever again. This animal abuse must end.

Dr. Ayoub M. Banderker echoed the concerns of Ms. Newkirk stating:

Traditionally, dogs have been seen as impure, and the Islamic legal tradition has developed several injunctions that warn Muslims against most contact with dogs. Unfortunately, many Muslims have used this view to justify the abuse and neglect of dogs.

It is clear that Mr. Trump is abusing Ms. Clinton barking like a dog in his campaign ad.

American Muslims overwhelmingly support Hillary and do not wish to see her abused in this manner.

However, we suggest that Mrs. Clinton wear a burqa and cover herself during her campaign stops so as not to offend her Muslim supporters.

bark magazine coverThe Bark magazine, an educational and cultural guide for the true dog lover, will be featuring Ms. Clinton on their November 2016 issue.

Claudia Kawczynska, The Bark’s editor-in-chief, noted, “Mrs. Clinton is the embodiment of our motto ‘Dog is My Co-pilot.’ She has been President Obama’s co-pilot as Secretary of State. We will be featuring Mrs. Clinton in our November edition of The Bark in an article titled “Hillary’s Bark Heard Round the World.” We see her as a nominee for the best bark award, which usually is given to a dog but what the heck!”

Vladimir Putin’s press secretary issued the following short statement:

President Putin looks very good in this ad as he shows his manliness as well as his lighter side. The president found it amusing to see Hillary barking like a dog. As Secretary of State we found her to be house trained and she heals well when told to sit down.

President Putin is seeking royalties from the Trump campaign for the use of his image. After all we are all capitalists!

The Islamic state issued the following:

Dogs are forbidden and unclean according to the prophet Mohammed, may peace be upon him.

The Koran describes a situation where the angel Gabriel interrupts a meeting with the Prophet Muhammad because a dog has wandered into the prophet’s home. “We angels do not enter a home in which there is a dog or a picture,” Gabriel tells the prophet.

One of the hadiths (the teachings, deeds and sayings of the prophet Muhammad) reads: “If a dog licks the vessel of any one of you, let him throw away whatever was in it and wash it seven times.”

We suggest that any Muslim who comes into contact Hillary Clinton immediately wash 7 times to cleanse themselves. Do not let her into your homes or mosques a Western infidel dog is unclean.

The Donald Trump campaign stated, “Everyone is missing the point of our ad. It’s not about dogs, its about Hillary’s bark being worse than her bite, LOL.”

Muslim Brotherhood Fomented Arab Spring like revolt at Trump Chicago Rally?

The visceral response Trump is getting as he continues his campaign for the Republican nomination for President of the United States is beyond what I have ever seen in my lifetime. The message is abundantly clear, he has struck fear into the heart of Islam, as well as the elite and establishment Republicans.

As it becomes likely that Americans will place Trump or Cruz into the White House, the Muslim Brotherhood is responding out of a necessity. It appears they have strategically  joined forces with Black Lives Matter in order to bring about their Arab Spring here in America. The protestors who showed up to Trump’s rally in Chicago Friday night were definitely not there for a peaceful protest.

From the day Trump stated he would ban Muslims from entry into the country through resettlement until the process proved safe to Americans, he has worried Islamic leaders here and around the world. He also made a simple statement to Anderson Cooper in a recent interview that drew much attention. Trump stated,

“I think Islam hates us. There is something there that-there’s tremendous hatred there. There’s tremendous hatred. We have to get to the bottom of it.”

It is apparent they do not want him to hold the high office of our land, nor would they want a Ted Cruz, and since Cruz is not the front runner Trump is getting the brunt of their hatred.

At a December Muslim American Society (MAS) Conference this past December in Chicago, several prominent Muslim Brotherhood affiliated individuals said some things that should jolt the authentic American awake from any political correct sleep they are under. Watch the Conference Video:

For example Nihad Awad, National Director for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) stated this about the 2016 elections,

“You can change the reality of our time. This is the time for American Muslims to be at the front and not to retreat. In 2016 minorities will play a major role, African-Americans, Latinos. We have to help those people in their causes, because their causes are our causes. Black Lives Matter is our matter. Black Lives Matter is our campaign.”

The Muslim Brotherhood is essentially using the thugs of the BLM movement to do a lot of their dirty work, the nitty gritty work on the streets that they would rather leave to the grunts. Those in the BLM better wake up to the fact that they are being used as slave labor for the Muslim Brotherhood and other rich and powerful entities like Soros.

I would imagine the BLM likes to think other movements are coming along-side to help them in their cause for “justice”, but they are simply pawns in a chess game. It is known that Arab Muslims hate black people. Ask any black person in Morocco for confirmation of that, because it is the Arab Muslim who is full of racism, not your average American.

At the same conference, Khalilah Sabra, Executive Director and Project Developer for MAS said this of their motives and of using the BLM,

“We are prepared to unite for struggle, for blacks, for Hispanics, for Muslim. If we are not prepared to wage this struggle, we will fail, but first we need to make a conscious admission to ourselves that black lives matter.”

It sounds like she is admitting joining with blacks may go against what her audience feels, but that they have to decide that black lives matter, because in her heart she doesn’t believe it to be true. She is simply encouraging the union because it is a means to an end. The end is a revolution in America that would give Muslims a bigger foothold in our country with the end result being an Islamic America ruled by Sharia.

She continues,

“That we are a community that staged a revolution across the world. If we can do that, why can’t we have that in America?”

So, I guess it wasn’t caused by the video after all.

One prominent Imam from Chicago thought it would be a good idea to encourage mayhem at the Trump rally in Chicago. Abdul Malik Mujahid was born in Pakistan and apparently has been included in a list of the Most Influential Muslims. He is very involved in coaching Muslims on how to vote.

His tweet from March 4th at 5:57pm

“Trump is going to be in Chicago on March 11th at UIC. Any ideas what Muslims, Blacks and Latino should plan on doing. I am quite sure that Chicago media will cover the protest well.”

Consider if this kind of tweet came from a Christian Pastor or a Rabbi and was targeted at a Hillary or Bernie rally. It would ruin their reputation, not to mention the coveted 501c3 status of their church or Synagogue. More importantly this tweet reveals a strategy of using Black Lives Matter and Latinos to cause active revolt and a desire for violence.

The Muslim Brotherhood and Black Lives Matter pose a threat to our personal security. This is not some movement for “civil rights”.  They are infringing on the rights of Americans to peacefully gather and express their first amendment rights. Those same rights that gave the BLM protection as they marched down a street in Minnesota last year chanting, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”

One group, the Muslim Brotherhood, is already being considered by our House of Representatives to be designated as a Foreign Terrroist Organization, the other, BLM, needs to be investigated as well as they are now linked to that organization, and pose threats to the American public.

For those reader interest in contacting their Congressman concerning these Issues ma do do.

‘Single-topic’ website on Muslim migrants launched by ‘Lefties’

Gosh, where have they been?

We’ve been a “single-topic” website on the subject of refugees for going on nine years! We’re an “organic outgrowth.” We’ve got this “microcommunity” covered! (And, we didn’t need a dime from some rich, elite, foundation either!).

lara-setrakian-300

Lara Setrakian of Refugees Deeply.

Here is the news (thanks to Joanne) from USA Today (article starts out with the inaccurate story about the toddler who had been safe in Turkey, but who died because his Dad wanted new teeth in Europe which they never tell you!).  That opening tells you all you need to know about the spin this new website will put on the news!

And so Tuesday, March 15, will mark the debut of Refugees Deeply, the latest in Setrakian’s string of immersive single-topic websites.

There are an estimated 60 million refugees in the world, many forced from their homes by unrelenting violence.

“Every country is dealing with this, from America to Australia,” says Setrakian, a former foreign correspondent for ABC News and Bloomberg TV. “But they are in their own little bubble.” Refugees Deeply hopes to play a role in the search “for long-term solutions,” Setrakian says. “How do we make sense of it?”

And solutions, she believes, are essential. [We’ve got solutions!—ed]

[….]

In a sense Refugees Deeply, which is being supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, seems like an organic outgrowth from Setrakian’s debut project, Syria Deeply, which launched in 2012 to rave reviews. The brutal civil war there has forced many to flee in search of safety.

But, Setrakian points out, “Syria is just the tip of it. It’s happening in Asia, Africa, Latin America. Sixty to 70% are not from the Middle East. There are a lot of places the refugee crisis is unfolding, and we never hear of it.”

“When we see a space that’s empty,” Setrakian says, “we gravitate to it.” Hey! Lara! It’s not empty!

Yes, we know this:

The Deeplies have found that their model of obsessive single-topic coverage resonates with people with a strong interest in that single topic. The idea for each one, Setrakian says, is “to be the centerpiece for that microcommunity” and “to turn a news site into a buzzing hive of activity.”

Watch for it! We can’t wait!

Collusion of Church & State in Invasion of Illegals: $182M to house “unaccompanied children” for just 4 months

Muslim U.S. Air Force veteran convicted of attempting to join Islamic State

“They said he travelled to Turkey to find work, not to become a jihadist.” Yes, because everyone knows that Turkey is the place with the thriving job market these days. Anyway, here we have another convert to Islam who becomes a traitor. One might almost get the idea that “Islam hates us,” but that would be “Islamophobic.”

“US Air Force veteran convicted of attempting to join Islamic State,” Reuters, March 9, 2016:

A US Air Force veteran was found guilty on Wednesday of attempting to join Islamic State, according to his lawyer.

Tairod Pugh, 48, was convicted after a week-long trial in Brooklyn federal court. The case is the first in more than 75 Islamic State-related prosecutions brought since 2014 by the US Department of Justice to reach a jury verdict.

Prosecutors said Pugh immersed himself in violent Islamic State propaganda for months before buying a one-way flight from his home in Egypt to Turkey, where he hoped to cross the Syrian border into territory controlled by the extremist group.

He was detained by Turkish authorities at an Istanbul airport and eventually flown to the United States to face terrorism charges.

Pugh’s defence lawyers argued that his only offence was to express “repugnant” views about Islamic State in Facebook posts and to watch dozens of the group’s slickly produced recruitment videos. They said he travelled to Turkey to find work, not to become a jihadist.

Mohammed and the Two Faces of Islam

A reader sent me a link to an op-ed in the Bradenton Herald titled, “Facts about Muslim faith ignored as fear-mongering, fabrications spread.” The op-ed was written by Hassan Shibly, Director for the Council for American Islamic Relations – Florida (CAIR-FL).

Shibly states in the op-ed:

“[The] Prophet Muhammad migrated to Medina to seek freedom of religion and fought several defensive battles while building alliances with Jewish and Christian communities.”

During a 2005 interview, Shibly supported the following statements about non-Muslims and homosexuals made by Khalid Yasin his mentor:

“There’s no such thing as a Muslim having a non-Muslim friend. If you prefer the clothing of the kafirs over the clothing of the Muslims, most of those names that’s on most of those clothings [sic] is faggots, homosexuals and lesbians.”

Read more.

In August 2014 Shibly tweeted that “Israel and its supporters are enemies of God and humanity.

So which is the correct interpretation of Mohammed? Which of these statements is the real Hassan Shibly?

The answer is both are correct in the mind of Shibly. Don Boys, Ph.D. in a 2004 column titled, “Islam Permits Lying to Deceive Unbelievers and Bring World Domination!” writes:

al-Taqiyya: deception; the Islamic word for concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies.

It is impossible to understand Islam and Muslims by listening to their protestations against terror and their proclamations of patriotism for America. Usually, it is wise and fair to give people the benefit of the doubt but when it comes to national safety and the future of America, we had better look twice, even thrice at Muslim patriotism. Why? Because Islam permits lying! It is called “Al-taqiyya.” One Muslim said that Al-taqiyya means dissimulation then he expanded it to diplomacy but he should have gone further to deception.

Now some Muslims who do not follow the Koran are as faithful Americans as any of us, but the problem is, we cannot know.

Read more.

Dr. Boys notes, “Muslims are permitted to lie: (1) to save their lives, (2) to reconcile a husband and wife, (3) to persuade a woman into a bedroom and (4) to facilitate one on his journey. Muslims are even permitted to disavow Islam and Mohammed if it is not a genuine heart-felt rejection. Muslims will tell you that concealment of a truth is not an abandonment of that truth if it benefits Islam.”

So is Shibly lying to save his life? He states, “I am scared.” Or is he facilitating deception in his journey to bring Islam to America? That is the question. 

Shibly blames the Muslim migration to Europe on American foreign policy stating, “In reality, the migration we see is a direct result of our failed foreign policy that destabilized the Middle East, such as the illegal invasion of Iraq, which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians and the birth of groups like ISIS.”

But the Islamic State (ISIS) was birthed after President Obama removed all troops from Iraq. So how can this be? Why are Muslims and Christians alike being slaughtered by Muslims in the Middle East and Africa? Answer: Because they have been for 1400 years, ever since Mohammed migrated from Mecca to Median in 622 and ended with the conquest of Mecca in 630.

It is the global strategy to establish the Caliphate.

To understand Islam, one must understand Mohammed. Shibly has stated to the author that he “traces his blood line directly to Mohammed.”

Shibly is not only a follower of Mohammed, his family lineage goes back to Mohammed.

Islamic State Hackers Publish Names, Addresses of New Jersey Police

A file containing the information on 55 officers was uploaded to an Arabic-language, file-sharing site. It was downloaded 300 times in under 24 hrs.

The Islamic State’s ‘Caliphate Cyber Army’ (CCA) released the names, addresses and cell phone numbers of 55 New Jersey police officers, after hacking into a uniform laundry list.

The officers’ ranks, employee numbers and working locations were disclosed, as well as some home addresses.

A file containing the information on the officers, who all work for the transit police, was uploaded to an Arabic-language, file-sharing site, which showed that in less than 24 hours, the file had been downloaded 300 times.

Announcing the upload on the secure messaging service Telegram, the CCA described the file as “Personal information of the US police stations including Leaders and officers.”

In response, the New Jersey Transit System issued a statement which read, “The NJ Transit Information System was not compromised, however some information was breached from an outside vendor. The New Jersey Transit police are working the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI on this matter.”

The Caliphate Cyber Army is comprised of hackers sympathetic to the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and has mainly been successful in taking down small, unsecure websites and substituting its own propaganda.

However, last November, the “army” hacked into 54,000 Twitter accounts, posting the accounts’ passwords online. The group also posted the cell phone numbers of the CIA, the FBI and the National Security Agency.

The army was able to briefly control a Pentagon Twitter account in January.
