The Education Jihad


From Brigette Gabriel:

Something to think about as we get ready for a new year of fighting the good fight.

Storm Track Infiltration: The Education Jihad


Following is the HS Today (Homeland Security Today Journal) cover story “Jihad Versus Education.” An analysis of the impact of Jihadi influence and ideology on US Education and recommendations to the US Government, executive branch and Congress. Posted on Walid Phares and FDD web sites. The piece argues that for the past two decades the American educational system has been targeted and impacted by Oil producing regimes leading to a derailing of the national security analysis. The article underlines the fact that by reaching the classrooms, Wahabi and Khumeinist influence was affecting the newsrooms. Hat tip to The Counterterrorism Blog.


Here are some important excerpts of the Phares article.


THE WAR ON US EDUCATION: 1980s-1990s
One of the major results of the 1973 oil crisis was the rise of a determination by many oil producing regimes that the West, in general, and the United States, in particular, “understand” the greater Middle East, the Arab and the Muslim world and, accordingly, design its policies toward those regimes and ideologies on the basis of this “understanding”. There is that need to ‘understand’ why our enemy doesn’t like us.


As a result, millions of dollars were invested in American and European educational institutions as a way to “foster” this understanding. But instead of fostering an objective understanding or spreading impartial knowledge, the growing influence of Wahabism, an extreme form of Islam, and other such ideologies on the nation’s campuses played a dangerous role: Because of the ideological nature of the donors, the financed programs followed the guidelines of the donor regimes and organizations, which obviously narrowed research and teaching to issues remote from the major historical crisis in the region, other than the modern Arab-Israeli conflict. It removed all serious attention to the rise of Islamism, jihadism and even Baathism, as well as the deep ethnic and religious conflicts and the mass abuse of human rights in that part of the world.


The apologists like John Esposito and Bernard Lewis say:


A careful review of curricula and research projects established within the US educational system, both public and private, since the 1980s stunningly reveals that American classrooms were deprived of knowledge on social, historical, ethnic and ideological movements rising to challenge the United States. Moreover, as I taught comparative studies for over a decade and lectured on many campuses in the 1990s, I came to realize that defense, strategic and security studies were heavily influenced by “regional” studies when it came to identifying the backgrounds of international terrorist movements emerging from the greater Middle East and penetrating western societies. History and Middle Eastern studies had been corrupted by Wahabi and other funding with an impact on political science, international relations and, ultimately, defense and security studies across the land.


A thorough review of the annual meetings of the American Political Science Association, the Middle East Studies Association of America, the International Studies Association, the Middle East Institute and other professional education associations, of the hundreds of books, publications, articles, talks and research grants distributed by Ivy League universities and other colleges lead to only one conclusion: The gap is immense. There are no traces of the roots of jihadism and its long-term objectives against democracies and the United States. Instead, prominent scholars produced an enormous amount of literature precisely deflecting scholars and students away from the most serious issues related to American defense and security after the collapse of the Soviet Union.


The “hole” was so vast and the “deflection” (not to use the term “deception”) so wide that a systemic problem strode the field producing waves of effects into the professional worlds of the media and policy. An academic lobotomy led to an incapacitation of the public learning process about the national security threat and created a cultural crisis in perception. In short, if one isn’t taught about the political thinking of the enemy and his ideological objectives in the classroom, where else would one catch up?


Those who spread the doctrine of jihadism in America during the 1990s had no counter check from the public or government, while even a minimal manifestation of Nazism, anti- Semitism or domestic violent racism was quickly countered. Clearly, Americans never lacked for imagination, but they were deprived of the necessary information.


If intellectual blurring starts in classrooms, it soon reaches the newsrooms and, eventually, the intelligence rooms and war rooms. If young Americans are mistaught the ideology, political culture and intentions of the enemy while at school and in college, once graduated, they will carry this misperception with them as they find jobs and are recruited in all the layers of national analysis. Students enter the media, legislative research, security, intelligence, foreign policy, justice, think tanks and other sectors crucial for national decision making at the bottom levels and rise up to the ultimate positions.


By failing students in the classrooms, the educational system caused a national analysis failure: Media failed to report terrorism as it should have, impacting government’s various levels of policymaking; intelligence analysis, deprived of cultural understanding, saw the data but couldn’t put the bigger picture together; courts couldn’t process the concepts of terrorism beyond criminality; and, ultimately, both the legislative and executive branches were denied sound advice on the war already in progress against the country.


In conclusion, the failure in education led to a derailment of national analysis.


So what about today? How deep does the rabbit hole go? Read on...

The rabbit hole is deep and as we get ready to begin a new year I am reminded that THIS IS WHY WE, JIHADI DU JOUR, ARE HERE.

Yesterday I received an interesting e-mail from a moderate muslim who was offended NOT by our website's premise but by some of our content.

We also had a request by a copyright owner to remove a link from a Google Video. The copyright owner was from a "truther/Conspiracy" site who came after us, surely not because he agreed with our content either.



I have no answer to the reader who e-mailed us except to say that moderate or not he follows the Koran- and until certain Surah's are rescinded from that "holy book", I will always have a mistrust for it.

The point to JDJ is that we are here to inform and to give our unique opinions on the state of the world and terrorism. We want to educate TOO, and alert people to the danger, goals, and methods of the Islamists. We report the news and express our views. Sometimes the best way to make a point is through sarcasm and satire, which is almost always offensive to someone.

JDJ wishes you a safe, prosperous and Happy New Year.

The State of Denial!


For me it is simply amazing the state of denial that people are in about Islamic terrorism.

Many of us must have forgot about what happened on 9/11 not to mention all the previous attacks. People seem to be so focused on telling themselves "All Muslims are peaceful" instead of facing the fact that at least 10 to 15 percent of them want to kill you. Thats not even including those that have a hate for America and Western Culture. That percentage is much higher. Not to mention that the percent of Muslims that want to see Islamic Law to rule the world is even higher than that.

It seems the White House is blind as to what Islam really means to Muslims. They have not a clue about the deep Islamic teachings. Not to mention the incoming house intelligence chairman didn't know if al Qaeda was Shi'ite or Sunni. He also seemed to be unaware of who Hizbollah even is. If a 23 year old College kid like me knows these things and understands why they are important don't you think the government officials should? How can we fight someone if we don't even know who the enemy is? Of course with all this ignorance of Islam and saying "Islam is a religion of peace" the government decides that the FBI and Military needs Islamic sensitivity courses. You also have the TSA inviting CAIR to teach what is billed as "cultural sensitivity training".

How ridiculous is this? Most of the terrorist attacks on this country and around the world are done by Radical Muslims. That being said why would you not profile Muslims? Why is it hard for Muslims to see why people are skeptical of them? If it had been A Christian or a Jew that was quoting from their sacred texts to justify terror then I would say we should profile them. And I believe that the Christians and Jews should understand why they are being profiled. But that is not the case. This is not about hating someone because they are Muslim. Its about facing the hard truth that we don't like to admit.

Until we face up to this and stop with all this political correct nonsense we will never win. We must understand why questions must be ask of Muslims of how they feel about Womens rights? and if they would like to see Islamic Law replace the Constitution one day. Nothing is harsh in those questions they are honest questions that we justifiably as Americans are concerned about. Until these things are done and we begin to start fighting a war like Patton spoke of we will never truly defeat the Islamic fascist. Its time to wake up America.

Hussein Hanging Video


Ok this might be considered hit pimping...but I've heard reports that bloggers stats are growing like weeds from people from every country looking for video of the Hussein hanging.

My thoughts on it.

Listen-I don't have it.


And when the Hussein Hanging Video is indeed available I probably won't post it myself. Perhaps others here at JDJ will...but I feel that it has too much resemblance to other execution videos that we do air here. We air them only to highlight the brutality of the "religion of peace's" most visible spokemen at work.


We are the good guys...


...and we don't have to broadcast true justice with the same savoring fervor as the Jihadists air their injustices.

That being said I do have before and after photos...

The photo is before. Click it for the after.


Meaningful Muslim Executions




Update: Drudge has it. HotAir.com has it too.


While some Muslims cheer at Saddam's death others decry it. Perhaps these are the only Muslim executions of which they approve.

Iraqis gather to witness Saddam's execution

Click for Video
(His)Final Thoughts At 10 PM

Trying to do this with dignity:

In his Friday sermon, a mosque preacher in the Shiite holy city of Najaf called Saddam's execution "God's gift to Iraqis."


BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP)--An adviser to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Saddam would be executed before 6 a.m. Saturday, or 10 p.m. Friday EST. Also to be hanged at that time were Saddam's half-brother Barzan Ibrahim and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, the former chief justice of the Revolutionary Court, the adviser said.


The time was agreed upon during a meeting Friday between U.S. and Iraqi officials, said the adviser, who declined to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media.


"Saddam will be handed over shortly before the execution," the official said. The physical transfer of Saddam from U.S. to Iraqi authorities was believed to be one of the last steps before he was to be hanged.

Party at Allah's...


UPDATE: 10:10PM Fox News and others are reporting "SADDAM HUSSEIN IS EXECUTED".

Honestly, it makes me...well...Smile!


More smiling ...In Dearbornistan!

DEARBORN, Mich. -- A group of Iraqi-Americans gathered late Friday at a mosque in anticipation of Saddam Hussein's execution, praying for the death of the former Iraqi dictator as drivers outside honked horns in celebration.


Dave Alwatan wore an Iraqi flag around his shoulders and flashed a peace sign to everyone he passed at the Karbalaa Islamic Educational Center in this suburb of Detroit, a city that has one of the nation's largest concentrations of people with roots in the Middle East.


"Peace," he said, grinning and laughing. "Now there will be peace for my family."

William F. Buckley smiles...Both eloquently and righteously.

The death of Saddam Hussein at rope's end brings a pleasure that is undeniable, and absolutely chaste in its provenance.


Happy Friday.

Terrorists will Not be Released for Holiday

Cpl. Gilad Shalit
Dread "locked" holiday:

IsraelNN.com--Israel will not release Arab prisoners for the Muslim holiday of Eid el Adha. Last week, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert promised Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas that he would consider such a move as a goodwill gesture, but the prime minister has not yet held a meeting on the subject, and the Muslim holiday begins on Saturday. "If there is no discussion there will be no release," said a senior figure in the Prime Minister's Office.


Other sources said the prime minister decided on Friday morning not to release Arab prisoners before kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit was freed. A senior official in the Prime Minister's Office responded to the Arab complaints about Olmert's decision, saying "instead of expressing regret, if these officials would abide by the cease-fire, maybe they would get prisoners."

Go Olmert Go! Perhaps had the Palestinians thought of releasing Gilad for Hannukah or even, Yahweh forbid, Christmas, they could be held in good faith.

But given that during the ceasefire there have been over 60 rockets fired from Palestine, does anyone doubt Olmert's judgement? (Besides the UN and all of Islam.)

Winning a War


What does it take to win a war? Certain adversaries in the past reached a point where they new winning was unattainable and threw themselves at the mercies of the victor. The modern enemy, Islamists, will never see victory as unattainable. They believe they have the might of allah behind them and will continue to fight as long as this idea exists. Unfortunately you can quash an idea by being nice. This idea must be shown to be unrealistic and fatal. In our present situation, nothing less then total unconditional surrender can be considered a victory. The enemy has a glimmer of hope that is not seen by the rest of us. It is an imaginary hope that cannot be eliminated by truth and fact of circumstances. The enemy is willing to kill and die for this ideology. We must be willing to do the same.

The enemy must be made to see that we will pull no punches when it comes to their defeat. Sitting down at tables and talking works to their advantage and displays our unwillingness to fight. The time for talk has passed. The next time we should be talking with any of these people is when they are signing a surrender document and we have gained control over their countries. In regards to terror organizations there should never be a sit-down. They should be eradicated from existence.

Whether we like it or not, war has become necessary. This war should be fought relentlessly and tirelessly. We should be constantly on the attack and taking no quarters. If provided quarters, they will maintain their ideology and use our internal sense of compassion against us. If you don't believe this take a look at the Guantanamo Bay prison and see how it has sent "civil rights" lawyers and activists into a tizzy. Don't take prisoners, the enemy doesn't. They even kill those that sympathize with them. Ignore the propaganda coming out of these quarters and strike hard with our own.

Pay no attention to the United Nations. It is because of this worthless organization we are in our present situation. Islamists and their sympathizers now have say in the General Assembly and they have allies on the Security Council. The Mafia has more discipline and respect than the United Nations does. What they say has no bearing on attaining world peace. Their job is to rape that advanced nations to line their own pockets with money and awards. The accolades and praise they receive are self induced. Get my country out of this organization and get this organization out of my country.

With us or against us. It IS that simple. Despite the propagandistic rhetoric, the United States is not imperialistic. We will trade and do business with just about anybody. We are paying the price for this mindset now. We have dealt with despots in the past. we have propped up and supported despots. All to protect our nation's assets and interests. This has created dissent against us as being hypocritical when it comes to freedom and human rights. Now we are attempting to reverse this and are being called hypocrites on the other side. President Bush cannot be held accountable for the actions of his predecessors. He has chosen his own path and on the surface it appears to be one of righteous indignation against these despots and what they have created. This is not something that can be accomplished overnight. It will take a generation or two to bring it to fruition. Do we have the patience?

Meanwhile we should be fighting. We should be fighting hard. we didn't differentiate between the German citizen and the Nazis during WWI. Why are we doing it now? Had the media during WWI been the same media during Vietnam or now, we would have lost that war and the Nazis would still rule Europe. We have enemies within. Some don't even realize they are aiding and abetting the enemy. Some deny the fact. Others don't care. America is not the cause of the all of the world's woes. We are doing our best to fix them. If a man gives you a hundred dollars to pay your utility bill and you spend it on alcohol, it is not the donors fault you have no electricity. The American Government and the American people have been more charitable than any government or people on the planet. Our thanks is airplanes crashed into buildings and our citizens beheaded or blown up. The charity should stop now. No money to enemies. No money or aid to country's who support our enemies. Provide support to a terror group and receive no aid during your next catastrophe. The American people deserve better for their efforts.

Defeat the enemy and eliminate his will to fight. This is the object of warfare. Kill as many of them as possible. No matter how advanced our technology becomes, "innocents" will die. Weapons are made by people which are imperfect which means our weapons are imperfect. War can be broken down to individual battles, one man killing another man. As crass as this sounds, this is the truth. Our present war is one for freedom. If you won't fight for another man's freedom you don't deserve the freedom you have.

There are many who claim that if Al-Quaeda was marching down mainstreet America they would fight. I say poppycock! If they aren't willing to fight now then they won't fight then. Anyway, by then it will be too late. If you aren't willing to fight for your own freedom, see the last sentence of the previous paragraph.

Islam preaches convert or die. Liberty requires one to fight or die. Would you rather feel guilty for killing some "innocents" or would you rather live as a slave to Islam. You make the choice.

Landowner protests a Mosque with Pig Races


Donate to APEs and PIGs

This little piggie went to market, this little piggie went...

KATY, TEXAS - While Kamel Fotouh makes plans to build a mosque on 11 acres of pasture here, neighbor Craig A. Baker is making plans of his own - plans to hold pig races.


Baker figures he'll need a tent, souvenirs and a track for the pigs to race on, all in full view of the Muslims next door, for whom pigs are forbidden as food.


As a bonus, Baker will host the competition on Friday - a Muslim holy day.


This is not meant as a slur on Islam, Baker said. It's a dispute between two neighbors. "A lot of people are making this into a racist situation, a redneck guy from Texas saying 'We're going to put on pig races,' " he said. "But I'm standing up for property rights."

I guess we will see how the Constitution reads on this one.



Meanwhile the Association of Pig Enthusiasts and the Property Is God-given rights advocacy group (aka APEs and PIGs) have published a joint publication of Law Enforcement Official's Guide to Pig Racing.

Suggestions include:


It is offensive to call pigs swine. As we do not call police "pigs", so similar restraint is requested.


You must be very sensitive during feeding times. Do not disturb a pig while it is facing the trough eating slop. This occurs at least 5 times daily.


Pigs refuse to be eaten by Muslims. So don't even ask.





Time to get your "oink" on!

3 million Muslims begin annual hajj pilgrim in Mecca



You "spin" me right round, baby right round...

MECCA, Saudi Arabia: Nearly 3 million Muslims from around the world, chanting "I am here, Lord" and raising their hands to heaven, marched through a desert valley outside Mecca on Thursday in the first day of the annual hajj pilgrimage.


Dressed in seamless white robes symbolizing the equality of mankind under God, the pilgrims hiked through the 13-kilometer (8 miles) valley to Mina, starting a series of rituals in which they cleanse themselves of sin.


"The hajj is a school for teaching unity, mercy and cooperation."


For pilgrims streaming in from all continents, the hajj is a crowning moment of faith, a duty for all able-bodied Muslims to carry out at least once. On Thursday morning, as they have for the past few days, hundreds of thousands opened their pilgrimage by circling the Kaaba, the black cubic stone in Mecca, Islam's holiest site, which Muslims face when they perform their daily prayers.


"For us it is a vacation away from work and daily life to renew yourself spiritually," said Ahmed Karkoutly, an American doctor from Brownsville, Texas. "You feel you part of a universe fulfilling God's will. It's a cosmic motion, orbiting the Kaaba."

Remember the days of God is Dead? Or the povwer of myth? Or when anything Christian was vigorously attacked as fairy tale and "the opiate of the masses"?

The AP article above impresses me in the matter of fact way it assumes the reality of the Hajj without any question or objection. Does the media care to analyze why Islam is so violent when the rituals observed at the Hajj culminate in a stoning of the devil?

Muslims throwing rocks at giant phallic symbol. what's that about Mr. Freud?
Saudi Arabia spent more than $1 billion over the past year on a project to renovate the stoning site, where the massive crowds of pilgrims file past three stone walls symbolizing the devil to pelt them with stones. New entrances and exits were added around the walls to ease the flow of traffic, and this year authorities made repeated announcements to pilgrims not to bring luggage to the site.


On Thursday, the crowds filtered out of Mecca toward Mina through the desert valley, chanting, "Labbeik, allahum, labbeik," Arabic for "I am here, Lord."


They will spend the night in a tent city in Mina before heading Friday for Mount Arafat, the site where Muhammad gave his final sermon in 632. There they spend the day and night in prayer and meditation before returning the Mina for the stoning ritual.

It is easy to confuse the difference between a "devil" and "a person of the devil". Christians went through a period of burning heretics and drowning accused witches, and grew out of it. The Muslims are only acting out their fight with evil when they behead or stone sinners. This year 3 million Muslims will have a chance to blur the lines again.

Islam against Freedom


From everything I have read and researched Islam is not compatible with the western ideas of freedom and democracy. Islam's idea of freedom is freedom from something. Mainly freedom from making decisions. I can see where this would fit in well with some leftists within our own borders. Their idiocy and ignorance leads them to bad decisions which have consequences. They don't like being stupid, nobody does. If Islam takes away this decision making then they are not responsible for what happens. So in simple terms, Stupid people become Islamists.


Based on the history of Islam, representative democracy is also a non player. Islam would like to establish another caliphate. This takes the power away from people and gives it to religious leaders. I wonder if the leftists in our own country will acknowledge a theocracy. Would they be willing to give up their individual freedoms and let someone else make decisions while they choose to live in a theocracy? Remember, these are stupid people.


There is nothing in the koran that would indicate freedom of choice. The book simply comes down to convert or die. If you decide to convert, everything is decided for you. Forgiveness, tolerance, and compassion are not qualities that the koran evokes from mankind. In fact, it's the opposite.


I am not saying anything new. Many people, including myself, came to this conclusion a long time ago. If we want to see what happens to a democratic society when Islam takes over, look to Europe. The most popular name in England is Mohammed, which has surpassed George. Unless there is a drastic change, Europe will be under Islamic control within a few decades. It won't be a calm transition either. Be prepared for the Great Mosque of Notre Dame.


Leftists are not equipped for the upcoming war. This is going to be a religious war, Judeo-Christianity versus Islam. The Secularists, leftists, sociocommunists, agnostics, and atheists will be the wildcard. Most of them will choose to sit on the sidelines and complain. This works to the advantage of the Islamists. If Islam were to win, they would be the first to suffer. They would have no one to blame but themselves. But, as usual, they'll blame someone else anyway.

Ethiopian, Somali Troops Regain Jowhar


Chasing Snakes.

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) -- Attacking at dawn, Ethiopian and Somali government troops drove Islamic fighters out of the last major town on the road to the Islamist-held capital.


Former warlord Mohammed Dheere, who ruled Jowhar before it was captured by the Council of Islamic Courts in June, led the Somali government troops as they drove into the city, said resident Abshir Ali Gabre.


"We will attack Mogadishu tomorrow, from two directions," Dheere told the crowd, although his statement appeared to overstep his authority. Dheere does not speak for the government or the Ethiopians.


Government spokesman Abdirahman Dinari confirmed the capture of Jowhar and said his troops were heading toward Balad, an agricultural village about 18 miles from Mogadishu. Smaller than Jowhar, it is the last town before the capital.


A resident there, Mohammed Abdi Hassan, told The Associated Press by telephone that the Islamists have left the city and that no one was in control.


Fighting could still be heard at a military camp south of Jowhar, and an Islamic official said his troops were simply entering a new phase in their battle.


"Our snakes of defense were let loose, now they are ready to bite the enemy everywhere in Somalia," said Sheik Mohamoud Ibrahim Suley. He did not elaborate, but some Islamic leaders have threatened a guerrilla war including suicide bombings in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital.

Snakes! I didn't say it. The Islamist did. But not everyone thinks they are snakes:

After fifteen years of murderous chaos, Somalia was on the brink of peace. The Union of Islamic Courts (UIC) had achieved what the squabbling warlords had failed so signally to do. They had brought stability and an end to violence in the capital Mogadishu and large areas of the country. They had not managed this purely by force of arms. There has been widespread support for their advance simply because of the stability and end to insecurity that they promised. The warlords had had their chance. Even when they finally agreed a government, they were incapable of agreeing on its establishment in Somalia itself; so Somalis were treated to the ridiculous spectacle of a government that could only meet safely on Kenyan soil.

Sure I agree. Islamic totalitarianism does provide stability and security. It's called peace by submission.







And sometimes submission by spectacle...case in point.






Has anyone asked whose side Keith Ellison and his Somali constituents in MN are on?

CAIR Provides Law Enforcement Official's a Guide to the Muslim Community

DhimmitudeDid you know that CAIR is providing America's Law Enforcement officials with a Guide to the Muslim Community? How interesting!

This complete guide outlines basic information about Islamic beliefs that are relevant to law enforcement.


:: Additional topics


It also cover issues such as the rights of Muslim law enforcement officers, religiously-sensitive techniques for body searches, proper etiquette for entering Muslim homes, and advice on outreach to the Islamic community.


Via Sand in the Hourglass there are apparently special rules that law enforcement are expected to adhere to when dealing with the muslim community.

A Discombobulated Rant

And I mean this from the bottom of my heart!
Everything America does is lambasted, castigated, and downplayed as some evil attempt to take over the world. Israel, despite it's military advantage, refuses to decimate the Middle East, yet is accused of being the biggest detriment to peace. State sponsored terrorism gets a pass while the states trying to prevent this terrorism are considered the evil ones. Despite all of the blood, effort, and treasure that the United States as given to the world, it is looked upon as the unwanted neighbor. Israel, just wanting to be left alone, is continuously hounded and attacked because it is a Jewish State in a sea of despotic Islamic one's. The truth is out there for all to see yet it is ignored. It's better to feel good about ourselves than face the facts and have to do something we don't like.

The United Nations is now beyond mere contempt. It is even beyond laughable. It has shown itself to be nothing but a moneypit. There is no such thing as international law. Despite all this rhetoric of globalization, countries will not surrender their sovereignty and the UN has no power to enforce anything they say. How many more people will be slaughtered in Somalia or Sudan while the UN talks of treaties and pacts? The Islamic Courts in Africa refuse to acknowledge anything the UN comes up with so why should we? Ahmadinejad gets away with his defiance. Assad is able to run and hide from UN investigations. Saddam spit in the eye of the UN for over a decade and the UN did nothing. Milosovic never did suffer the UN to have any say in his country."Never Again" is a tragic joke.

Without the United States what would this world be like? I'm not talking commercially, I'm talking morally. If it weren't for US action in Bosnia what would have happened? What happened in Somalia when the US ran? What happened when the US didn't march to Baghdad the first time? What happened when the US withdrew support from Afghanistan after pushing out the Soviets? What happened when the US withdrew support from the South Vietnamese government? What happened when the US agreed to halt at the 38th parallel? What happened when the US remained aloof as the Shah was toppled? Where is the rest of the world when it comes to fighting evil and oppression? Why is it the US that has to send it's boys and girls to die while others spit at us?

History has proven that the greater force always wins. Not the greatest numbers of troops or the most advanced weaponry. The greatest force of will.America has lost it's will because of the continuous denigration and unappreciative actions of our so-called allies and friends. The truth be told, we have very few friends in the world. The world is made up of a bunch of evil, wicked, selfish, envious self-aggrandizing jerks that take more pleasure out of our discomfort than they do their own potential. Instead of making their societies better they would rather degrade and slow ours. If they can't catch up to us they want to bring us back to them. Because we are a compassionate nation we are an easily swayed target. They don't have to drag us back, we go willingly. All in the name of compassion.

Enough already. Let Europe fall under the weight of it's socialist utopia. Let Russia commit suicide by running an economy based on deceit and fraud. Let China overpopulate itself and crumble. Let Iran, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and any other Despotic Middle East Nation destroy itself. The Bible states that the Arab will be a wildman always fighting. Let them be. If they want to kill each other so be it. Don't let another American life be wasted to protect these selfish hatemongering jerks.

Israel is a friend and an ally. They are a nation that truly needs us. Even if they were located in a sea of bliss, they would need us. We helped found them, we need to live up to the responsibility that comes with that. Protect them. Help provide them with what they need to defend themselves. In fact, help them attain what they need to defeat the enemy they are surrounded by. By doing this, we help defend ourselves.


A Rant Of A Higher Order
- Open Season
Radical idea, outlaw Islam. It is an ideology that has proven to be lethal, even in small doses. It is not a religion. It is a complete way of life. It rules the day to day goings on of anybody who practices it. How many more people must be murdered in the name of allah before the full impact of Islam is realized? Momo believes there is a 12th Imam, let's help bring him back. Mecca, Medina, gone. Teheran, decimated. Anybody else want to be a target? What happens when the Islamic "holy sites" are annihilated? Does allah come to help his people? When allah does nothing and there are no longer any Islamic "holy sites" left will the mohammedans realize that they have been duped for centuries? Will they turn on the Imams and clerics? Will they turn on their governments? No. They're idiots. They'll still blame us. They'll find some excuse for why allah didn't defend them. Well here's one, MY GOD IS GREATER THAN YOURS. Allah is a figment of a pedophilic warmongers imagination. If he does exist I'm sure he doesn't sit on a throne in Heaven. I digress.

The world is falling apart and is causing all the damage itself. The "World Community" is a fraud. People are not willing to fight or defend freedom. In fact, people are willing to sell freedom down the river just to be left alone and as comfortable as they can be. In America, this movement is being led by the left. In Europe, the left has already won out. In the Middle East it is the fascistic Islamists that are winning. We're still wait and see in Africa. Africa may turn out to be a bastion of hope afterall, only time will tell.

Ellison encourages Detroit crowd to be Real Muslims

Keith's Friend, Lou Hussein-Not Obama

Osama Be Hidin' Keith Hakim X Ellison Mohamed

Direct from Dearbornistan: Marching orders! Spoken like a true Democrat but with a dangerous twist.

DETROIT — Speaking in Dearborn, Mich., late Sunday night, the first Muslim elected to Congress told a cheering crowd of Muslims they should remain steadfast in their faith and push for justice.


"You can't back down, you can't chicken out, you can't be afraid, you got to have faith in Allah, and you got to stand up and be a real Muslim," Detroit native Keith Ellison said to loud applause.


"Allahu akbar" — God is great — was the reply of many in the crowd.


...if you, and me too, stick together, if we believe in Allah, sallalahu aleyhi wasallam (meaning peace be upon him), if we turn to the Quran for guidance, we'll find an answer to the questions we have.

I've had a few questions that the Quran has already answered. Which makes me wonder, Mr. Ellison, what kind of real Muslim you mean.

Asking a Muslim to push for something is like fighting a fire with gasoline. And I'm starting to smell smoke...

Can Ian get an Allahu Akbar?

Iran Proves Holocaust just a Hoax

The Jewish Festival of Lights just ended a few days ago and I left out one photo for my post Chanukah 2006 - The Carnival of Lights:

chanukah bears

Jews will immediately recognize these to be ordinary Chanuka Bears. When Jews are not being apes and pigs and need to hibernate for a long time they turn into these lovable creatures. These Bears are in fact the answer to a question the BBC recently posed: Why are Jews at the 'Holocaust denial' conference?

Millions throughout the world were shocked to see these Orthodox Jews at the controversial Tehran debate.

Why are Jews attending a conference on the Holocaust in Tehran at which star guests include deniers of the genocide? Clue: they also want an end to the Israeli state.

Where did they come from and why did Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad embrace these filthy Jews?

A Christmas Wish For Islam


Courtesy of Scrappleface.com

Well, a man can always hope can't he?

My personal thoughts about "peace on earth and goodwill to men"...

In the little Wesleyan church I attended today, the minister was saying that Jesus is the gift of God's love. And because he was given to us we have freedom in our world. He said that, through Jesus, God sees no difference in man or woman, Jew or Gentile.


He said that "God is love and his only thoughts are love. God would never ask his child to strap a bomb around his waist and blow up innocent people. Nor would he demand adherence to laws that turn women into the slaves and tokens of men."


Nearly every oppressed nation rejects Christianity and embraces some form of a false religion or philosophy. Peace is not created by socialism or unity under Allah, as some would have us believe. True peace is not a change in society, but a change of heart. It is given in a quiet humble manger. Not by a murderous conquerer but by a humble saviour.


And society is all the better for it.


In recent days, we in the West have been invited to the so-called "Religion of Peace" by the likes of Mahmoud Amadinejad and Ayman al-Zawahiri. This Christmas, as always, the invitation to true peace is open to all.


Jihadi Du Jour wishes all of our readers a very Merry Christmas.

It's War or Annihilation


It appears that we are closer to war between Somalia and Ethiopia.

There are reports of Arabs arriving in ships to support the Islamic opposition in Somalia. Lacking the resolve and the initiative to settle the Middle East conflict, how will the "World Community" handle this one? Talk, talk, and more talk. To everyone who thinks the US should send forces to Africa to prevent the upcoming slaughter I ask how we can do that? I do wish we could send troops there. The problem is logistical. With troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, and still in Bosnia how do we send a reasonable sized and affective force to Africa?

The easiest way to get the Islamic tide to recede in Africa is to start killing them in Iraq and Afghanistan. Seeing as the battles in Africa are mostly between Arabs and Africans, we need to find a way to get the Arabs out of Africa. Killing Arab terrorists is the easiest way to do this.To prevent a full fledged World War the Middle Eastern region needs to truly feel the affect of American Might. By conducting a war as it should be, the Arabs would have to return to defend their own homes. This would give Africa a reprieve and potentially eliminate the major terrorist threat.

The most pathetic idea that the West constantly puts to the forefront to avoid war is human rights violations. Here's my question, isn't living and dying under oppression a human rights violation? Isn't government sponsored genocide a human right violation? Isn't the ritual practice of rape, torture, and murder a human rights violation? Isn't raising children to be murderers and homicide bombers a human rights violation? It's time to drop the hypocrisy. Cowardice is a human rights violation. Being unwilling to do what is necessary, whether you like it or not, is a human rights violation. Putting your childrens life at risk to defend a terrorist is a human rights violation. Telling me not to defend my family is a human rights violation.Enough is enough. It's time to start fighting.

All this talk about a draft doesn't really bother me. Although I never liked the bureaucracy of the military I did enjoy my time in the Navy. I felt like I was contibuting something. I have written about the necessity of setting up a group of irregulars. I did so in hope that somebody with the means to would take me up on that. So far, nothing. If the "World Community" will do nothing then it is up to the individual.Evil is on the march. Good men and women are dying while everyone watches on TV. The US government appears to be ceding it's power to weak and whiny nations. This doesn't bode well for the world's future.

The United States is in this position at this point of time because we are expected to wield the power we have attained for good. Not wielding this power is the equivalent to fleeing from evil. This is cowardice. Cowardice is the most evil of all vices.

U.S. strike kills Afghan Taliban leader

I'm DEAD.

Gone Daddy Gone!

KABUL, Afghanistan - A top Taliban military commander described as a close associate of Osama bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar was killed in an airstrike this week close to the border with Pakistan, the U.S. military said Saturday. A Taliban spokesman denied the claim.

As usual...

Of Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Osmani, who was killed Tuesday by a U.S. airstrike, U.S. military spokesman Col. Tom Collins noted Osmani's death as a "big loss" for the ultraconservative militia.

"There's no doubt that it will have an immediate impact on their ability to conduct attacks," Collins said. "But the Taliban is fairly adaptive. They'll put somebody else in that position and we'll go after that person, too."

And that is how the work gets done.

Somali Islamists urge Muslims worldwide to join jihad

Somalia: a young group of Keith Ellison supporters
A call to Keith Ellison's crowd...Somali go guri:

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somali Islamists urged foreign Muslim fighters on Saturday to join their "holy war" against Ethiopia after days of heavy fighting between Islamist and pro-government troops.


The Islamists and pro-Somali government fighters have been firing artillery and rockets at each other across frontlines since Tuesday, killing dozens and wounding hundreds. Though residents reported a lull in fighting early on Saturday.


"Our country is open to Muslims worldwide. Let them fight in Somalia and wage jihad, and God willing, attack Addis Ababa," said Islamisti defense chief Yusuf Mohamed Siad "Inda'ade", a hard-liner known for his belligerent rhetoric.


"We told the world to stop this problem. We told them to do something before it becomes a blazing fire that would engulf the region," he told reporters in the Islamist stronghold of Mogadishu.


The most sustained fighting to date between the two sides has heightened fears of a major regional war that would suck in Horn of Africa rivals Ethiopia and Eritrea.


Diplomats fear the Somali conflict could also trigger suicide bombings in east Africa.

"... a major regional war that would suck..."

Yes it would! But the Somali Islamists seem to thrive on declaring war for Allah. What makes this interesting is that there are a large number of Somali Muslims in the US. I know first hand of the ones in Minneapolis, as does Keith Ellison. They elected him.

This might be good for Minneapolis if the herd of Somalis suddenly booked flights. I wouldn't want to be on one of them but can you imagine?! Then our friend John will be, in a small way, vindicated.

Al Qaeda Sends a Message to Democrats

Posing like a Rock Star
Wierd Al-Z has a new tune for the Dems:

You Owe Us.

In a portion of the tape from al Qaeda No. 2 man, Ayman al Zawahri, made available only today, Zawahri says he has two messages for American Democrats.


"The first is that you aren't the ones who won the midterm elections, nor are the Republicans the ones who lost. Rather, the Mujahideen -- the Muslim Ummah's vanguard in Afghanistan and Iraq -- are the ones who won, and the American forces and their Crusader allies are the ones who lost," Zawahri said, according to a full transcript obtained by ABC News.


Zawahri calls on the Democrats to negotiate with him and Osama bin Laden, not others in the Islamic world who Zawahri says cannot help.


"And if you don't refrain from the foolish American policy of backing Israel, occupying the lands of Islam and stealing the treasures of the Muslims, then await the same fate," he said.

Well it's actually an old song, one we knew was coming since the first week of November.

This guy doesn't waste an opportunity. What can I say? Move over Paris, there's a new media whore in town.

Hat tip to Stop The ACLU.

Whatever You Do, Do Not Get Lost in Saudi Arabia


Clicking this flag will bring you to a YouTube Video of Saudi
Sharia Law Enforcement--You have been warned!

Saudi Arabia: "Trespasser" Sentenced By Islamic Court To Beheading

Saudi Arabia, purported ally of the West, is as far from the West as a country can be. A story from New India Press demonstrates how alien the country is.

An Indian national, 31-year old Jojo Joseph, wanted to see his wife, who worked as a nurse near Medina. She had just given birth to their son. Mr Joseph, who was based in Jeddah, where he was an employee of an electronics company, traveled towards where he thought his wife was based, and lost his way. He found himself on the road to Medina.

Unbeknownst to Mr Joseph, during the pilgrimage season, this road was forbidden to non-Muslims. He was arrested by police at Al-Azeez, and was hauled before a religious court on Monday. Full of that Islamic tolerance which the Saudis like to promote in the West, the religious court ordered that Mr Joseph should have his head sliced off on Tuesday, merely for "trespassing into a Muslim-only area".

Mr Joseph told his relatives back home in Mariyapuram, India, who contacted Oommen Chandy, leader of the opposition and former chief minister of Kerala state. Chandy contacted the Indian Embassy in Saudi Arabia and various ministers.As a result, the External Affairs secretary managed to convince the Saudi Government that Mr Joseph had merely become lost and had no malicious intent. When the Saudis insist on promoting their religion in the West, and fund groups like CAIR to change the legislation in Muslims' favor, one wonders how they would feel if Muslims were ordered to be decapitated for trespassing on kaffir territory.....

UPDATE: The same story as above is carried by The Hindu, but the Arab News tells a different tale entirely. There are still elements which disturb.The Arab News states that he was a passenger in a taxi, and therefore the taxi-driver should have been blamed for taking "Jojo" into a forbidden area. It reads:There is no recorded incident where a non-Muslim was executed for entering restricted space in Madinah or Makkah. Authorities generally treat these violations in much the same way trespassing is dealt with. In cases where the violation seems accidental, authorities will simply escort the trespasser out of the prohibited zone.

The road to nowhere...
Joseph was arrested and detained for three days after the taxi apparently took the wrong route and strayed into the prohibited zone of the city. The man was rushing to a hospital where his wife had given birth. Persons volunteering as morality enforcers spotted the man's maroon work/residency visa (denoting the carrier is non-Muslim) and called police. Source: Western Resistance

Time to Open Eyes

The Shape Of Things To Come?
Aaron Hanscom has an article titled "The Jihadist Dream to Liberate Spain" in todays frontpagemag.com. I not only recommend reading it, I recommend going to the links he has available. It should be very enlightening, at least to those who are willing to confront the truth. I have often jokingly referred to Andalusia on my blog. No more joking. After reading everything I have over the last couple of years it has become apparent that Islam wants to attain all the land it has lost over the last couple centuries.

Islamic ideology believes that by bringing Islamic rule to people is allah's will and provides TRUE freedom. By not having to think about, or ponder, meanings of life and our place in it we are free to do allah's will. Sounds nice, doesn't it? It also believes that lands that were conquered by the Prophet and his followers are Islamic lands, no matter who may rule there now. These lands were granted by allah and belong to the Mohammedans.

Unlike our society that uses words like Imperialism and Colonialism, the Islamists use the term Fatah, which in loose terms means granted. When Mohammed would go on a conquest he labeled it a Fatah. This prevented him from appearing as the infidels do and he was protected by the governance of allah. (Keep in mind that this is a layman's interpretation. I am sure there are others who can go into more depth.)

Any nation that exists now that is located on land that was previously controlled by Islam is considered fair game to the Islamists. As far as they are concerned, this is occupied territory. Spain is not the only nation that will have to face this. The United States is also part of this. Not because we are existing on former Islamic territory. We are considered part of the fatah. The Islamist's are going to free us from our misguided view and attempt at freedom. Be prepared. Not only are we are target for terror, we are a target for being freed according to Islamic tradition.

Kind of makes you feel good, doesn't it?

Security Alert: Airport Screener Jacket Found at Local Store

SOMETHING FOUL IS AFOOT! Click for Video...
National Un-security?

The News Four WOAI Trouble Shooters first uncovered records last May showing 1400 airport security badges and uniforms are missing from airports here and across the country.


Now, new information obtained by Trouble Shooter Brian Collister shows a dramatic increase in the total number.


But that's not all the Trouble Shooters found.


A WOAI viewer contacted the Trouble Shooters because he found a TSA screener's jacket for sale at a local thrift store. Security experts fear TSA uniforms could help terrorists pull off an attack. Mike Martinez, who found the jacket, said he felt compelled to pull it off the rack. He told News 4 his main concern was for the safety and security of fellow Americans after what happened on 9-11.

Well it's nice to know that some one is concerned. Authorities haggle over numbers while thousands of badges and jackets are missing. As HotAir.com commenter Dread Pirate Roberts VI put it:

I’d be concerned if 1 badge was missing and these guys are having a sissing contest over thousands!

Ready for that holiday flight yet?

Virgil H. Goode Jr.'s Muslim Remarks

Click for Video
"About as American as they come..."

From the LA Times:

WASHINGTON — Rep. Virgil H. Goode Jr. (R-Va.) on Thursday stood by his demand for strict immigration controls that he said would prevent Muslims from being elected to Congress and using the Koran during swearing-in ceremonies.


Islamic groups in the United States called on Republicans to repudiate Goode's remarks, which he first made in a letter attacking the use of the holy book in a ceremonial oath-taking next month by the first Muslim elected to the House.


"I do not apologize, and I do not retract my letter," Goode said emphatically during a session Thursday with reporters in the southern Virginia town of Rocky Mount.


Questioned later on Fox News Channel's "Your World," he said, "I am for restricting immigration so that we don't have a majority of Muslims elected to the House of Representatives."


The incoming House member at the center of the controversy, Keith Ellison, told CNN's "The Situation Room" on Thursday that he could trace his ancestors to Louisiana as far back as 1742. "I'm about as American as they come," said Ellison, who converted to Islam in college.


The Minnesota Democrat said he planned to use the Koran only as part of an unofficial individual swearing-in before friends and supporters. That event will follow the official ceremony in which all House members raise their right hands and pledge their allegiance to the Constitution and the laws of the United States, without resting their left hands on anything.


Goode said Thursday that he wrote the letter in response to constituents who e-mailed him about Ellison's decision to use the Koran. In the letter, he said his own ceremony would be different.


When I raise my hand to take the oath on swearing-in day, I will have the Bible in my other hand," Goode wrote. "I do not subscribe to using the Koran in any way…."


I fear," he wrote, "that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America."

So the man is entitled to his own opinion. I don't hear the mainstream media screaming about CAIR Chairman Omar M. Ahmad telling a crowd of California Muslims in July 1998,

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran . . . should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth."

Does anyone really think the agenda has changed since 1998? Did 9/11 create a change of heart in American Muslims "religious sensitivities"?

Ask a Muslim if the Koran has changed and you will have an answer.

As for my opinion--

I signed Jihadi Du Jour up for a certain advertiser and it was rejected for promoting and supporting intolerance. I replied to the rejection e-mail with, "Whose intolerance? Mine or the Jihadists?". I guess some won't realise where they are until they are under Sharia.

Finally it is Said


Finally it has happened.

Benjamin Netanyahu has finally said what needed to be said by someone other than nobodies like me. According to the Jerusalem Post Mr. Netanyahu has finally gone after Ehud Olmert. Any leader that allows his people to be attacked without retribution or even a chance that there may be a reckoning needs to be removed from a position of leadership.

Mr. Netanyahu hit it on the head:

Addressing an enthusiastic audience, the Likud leader opined, "Olmert said long ago that we are 'tired of curbing the attacks.' It's not the nation that's tired - Olmert is [the one who is] tired. There is only one thing worse than a nation that has lost faith in its leaders, and that is leaders who have lost faith in their nation."


He followed this by asking Mr. Olmert to vacate his position. Israel needs to do more than ask it, they need to demand it! Why would Olmert agree to restrain when the enemy is taking as many shots as they can? Why would another nations representative expect Israel to do this? Amir Peretz appears to have finally gotten it:

"We cannot gamble with the lives of Israeli citizens," Peretz said.

Then Olmert gets on the phone with Abbas and tells him that the restraint can't last forever. What kind of diplomacy is this? Abbas has as much control over Fatah or Hamas as Arafat did, none. The irony of today's attacks were that "Palestinians" were the victims.

In a region where any kind of restraint is deemed a weakness and cause for more attacks, Olmert has been playing right in to the hands of Fatah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad. The excuse for showing restraint is as pathetic as it is tragic. Government officials believe:

Officials in the Prime Minister's Office said that the terrorists were trying to provoke an Israeli response in order to unify the warring Hamas and Fatah factions against the IDF. The officials further said that a response would give more support on the street to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and weaken Abbas.

Let me sit here and you can beat up my brother because I know if I punch you in the nose you will get mad. What kind of logic is this? Abbas is already weak. There is nothing anyone can do to strengthen him or put him into a position that could stop the factions from fighting Israel or each other. Get out of this fantasyland you have been living in.

Enough of the games. Either fight or get out of the way! The "Palestinians" have refused to live up to any deal that they supposedly agreed to. They will continue to snipe at Israel until the get the Nuclear backing from Iran. At this point it will be too late. In fact, invade Gaza and the west bank, round up the "Palestinians" and send them to Iran. Let their Islamic brothers take care of them. Be sure to send the Islamic-Israelis, especially the ones in the government, with them.

It's about time Mr. Netanyahu stood up and pointed out the weakness and ineffectiveness of Mr. Olmert. Newspapers and bloggers can only do so much.

Islamic Law - Police Raid Beauty Parlor


-men arrested for receiving haircuts from women:

BANDA ACEH, Aceh province (AP): Enforcing Islamic law, Indonesian police raided a dozen beauty parlors and arrested 13 beauticians for failing to wear Islamic attire and two male customers for having their hair cut by women, police said Thursday.


Police chief Bahagia Hadi said raids on beauty parlors would be intensified in the Indonesian province of Aceh because such places were often found to be used for prostitution.


Bahagia said police found used condoms during a raid Wednesday in one of the parlors in the capital of the tsunami-ravaged province, Banda Aceh.


The 13 female parlor workers were arrested because they wore tight shirts and jeans but no head scarves, while the two men should have known that Islamic Sharia law states they can only receive haircuts from male hairdressers, he said.


All were released after being admonished by the Sharia Agency,he said.

This is not the first time someone has faced jail time for breaking the "haircut" laws of Islam.

KABUL, Afghanistan, May 22, 2001 - At the Ahmed brothers’ barbershop in the capital city of the world’s most radical Islamic regime, haircuts can be dangerous. The wildly popular Leonardo di Caprio cut, dubbed the “Titanic” by locals, has teen-age boys lining up every day, eager to be transformed into American heartthrobs. But the “Titanic” is a serious offense in the eyes of the Taliban, the staunchly anti-Western Islamic militants who rule this nation. Said Ahmed, the older of the two barbers, has been imprisoned twice for his artistry. But business is business — despite the Taliban.


...the Taliban imposed an unbending brand of Islam on a war-torn nation ruined by civil war and the Soviet invasion more than two decades ago. In today’s Afghanistan, thieves routinely have their limbs amputated. Women, banned from pursuing most careers, are executed for adultery. Pop music and dancing are banned, along with television and videos.


Even kite flying and laughing in public are censured.

In "lesser" important news : Supreme Court overturns terror conviction against Ba'asyir:


JAKARTA (Antara): Supreme Court Thursday overturned a conviction against cleric Abu Bakar Ba'asyir on conspiracy charges in the 2002 Bali bombings.


The cleric has maintained his innocence and denounced the allegations as a plot by Washington to silence his campaign for Islamic law.

Hurray for the Abu campaign! Well, that's enough to make me Islamophobic. And people like this want to pray at our airports? What on earth can they be praying for?

A perspective on America and Islam


Many muslims consider the current war on terror to be a war on Islam. The muslims actually involved in promoting terrorism in some way, whether it's by contributing to one of the so-called "charities" whose money goes for guns and ammunition, or by pulling a black balaclava over their heads and joining the shrieking crowds, see the war on terrorism to be nothng less than a war on Islam.

The "Sunday" muslims who prefer a secular government and don't follow strict Islamic rules and whose female members dress in modern styles, are divided. They see the Islamic hard-liners and extremists as being a threat to their own way of life, yet see the war on terror as being too undiscriminating toward differences in Islam, and feel threatened by it as well as the terrorists it's aimed against. This results in them ultimately siding with the extremists if pressure is brought to bear, such as an invasion of their country by people not of their basic faith. It's a catch-22 situation.

All religions that grow in adherents tend to become less and less like spiritual societies and more like governments. As the power of the head priests increases, so does their desire for more power. For example, the Vatican is a separate country from Italy and the Pope is a Head of State. Powerful religions want to dominate their adherents and become governments within governments. Often, there's a lot of competition between secular governments and the dominant religion for power. In fact, a number of dictators and kings have appointed themselves Pope, so as not to share power.

Islam solved this problem by declaring the religion to also be the government. It's all in one. Christianity did not and this is why Christianity was ultimately able to resolve it's differences with government and get along peacefully. Islam and secular government are basically antagonistic of each other. Iran was secular for a long time but this finally fell apart under the endless attacks from the imams, who wanted to take away the power for themselves. When you have a population that's taught that Islamic law and rule is proper, it should be expected that a secular government would be constantly defending itself from within.

This is why the believers of Islam have repeatedly attempted to conquer the world. This is the third major attempt since the creation of this aggressive doctrine. "Moderate" muslims are in fact moderate in that they don't want to pray 5 times a day and don't see a need to follow a strict Islamic diet, or force anyone else to do so either. Still, they are muslims, and if fundamentalist muslims gain enough power to intimidate them, most will join them rather than fight them.

In Iraq, the Shiites and Sunnis have both become radicalized and fight us and each other. In Iran, which is almost all Shiite and so has no conflict between sects, there is a strong underground and increasing dissatisfaction with the dictatorship of the ayatollahs, resulting in some low-scale internal warfare. A recent election demonstrated this trend away from the current hard-line stance. The difference between Iraq and Iran this way is the result of Iran's having enjoyed a long period of secular government, prosperity and Western influence. The people became accustomed to freedom and variety in food, dress and music. Losing all that, losing their prosperity and being forced to adhere to strict Islamic law instead has naturally created dissatisfaction.

The most likely scenario is that Islam will cycle in Iran and other Mid-East countries between being fundamentalist and moderate. Historically, this holds true. Turkey is another good example. Long a secular nation, it is now sliding back into the fundamentalist morass that it rose out of. Someday it will no doubt rise up as secular once again. This is how Islam is. Islamic cultures only advance when they become moderate. Once they slide back into stone-age fundamentalism again, poverty and degradation again rule the land.

There are lessons to be learned here. First, we're not going to get rid of Islam. There's really only one way to deal with it and that's to stop feeding the oil producing Islamic countries, to start with. This means we need to be energy-independent and we need to make a huge effort to achieve this. It has to be done and soon. This will increase our own treasury and greatly reduce theirs and the financing of more terrorism.

We must stop adventuring into the Middle East. If we were actually going after the true sources of terrorism in Pakistan, Iran and Saudi Arabia, we wouldn't have all the problems we have now and we would be seen as righteous warriors. Instead we're seen as crude interlopers, which just invites more aggression against us.

We need to recognize the nature of Islam within America and boot out the muslims and tear down their mosques. There is no room in a secular nation for Islam any more than there is room in Islam for a secular nation.

We should amend our Constitution to remove equal protections for non-citizens. These protections have lost their usefulness and are being terribly abused. Foreigners caught bringing addictive drugs into our country should be treated the same as terrorist combatants. Trials are for Citizens.

The laws allowing the ACLU to be paid attorneys fees should be repealed as this will take away their power to scare people and organizations into following their dictates. The ACLU is founded as a non-profit organization and it should be made to be one. The ACLU benefits terrorism by representing the interests of terrorists and the terrorists themselves. The ACLU is essentially athiest in nature and has been attacking any reference to God or Christianity in government since its inception. Stifling Christianity in America is a known Islamist goal.

American corporations that trade with any Islamic country should be heavily taxed accordingly to discourage such trade. Goods from Islamic countries should have heavy tariffs placed on them, to both discourage trade with them and to encourage them to place high tariffs on our own goods and discourage our corporations from doing business with them.

In short, we need to become insular as a nation, close our borders, restrict our trade and reward only those nations that are truly democratic. America became a democracy after a revolution. So did Mexico and other nations. Revolutions are no guarantee that democracy will result, as Cuba, for instance, demonstrates. However, the revolutions keep occurring until democracy is finally established. Our efforts to democratize other nations have always failed and have sometimes resulted in the opposite effect. We have failed once again in Iraq and are failing in Afghanistan.


We'd better get our house in order or they will.

We need to get our own house back into order and try keeping it that way.

We can't keep on trading and dealing with our enemies. This is utter stupidity. We aren't setting an example for them to rise up to, to become like. We are enabling them to defeat us. The only way to beat them is to become isolated from them and let them beat themselves. If we truly want them to become democracies, we have to get out of the way and let them do it on their own, to overthrow their oppressive regimes, exactly the same as we did.

Do you feel safer?

On September 10, 2001, I never dreamed of the United States being attacked as it was on September 11, 2001. For many people like me it was a harsh wake-up to reality. Over the years since 9/11 the question keeps coming up, mostly from politicians, 'do you feel safer now'. My answer is a very loud 'yes' if we are referring to attacks from outside the United States. If the question refers to attacks from within the United States, my answer is increasingly becoming a very loud NO. The reason is very simple, we are asking for it with our politically correct, multicultural fear of saying or doing anything that might offend Islam.

Our enemy just has to sit back and wait a few years, until we allow Islam to get it's roots fully dug into our culture here on American soil. My friend Always on Watch brought this to my attention, Islamicizing Christmas (Hat tip to Nanc):



Have yourself a Muslim little Christmas
From the December 16, 2006 edition of the Tennessean (image found here):

Gov. Phil Bredesen [Democrat, Tennessee] has given an unusual twist to his family's Christmas card: He is marking a Christian holiday with a card depicting a Muslim girl.

The card's cover is a print of a painting by the governor of a young woman he met when he toured Afghanistan in March.


For Christ's sake, it is CHRISTMAS! What is this Tennessee man thinking. He is just proving what a nice little dhimmi he is. He has surrendered without a fight.

A local conservative Christian minister also wasn't sure [of the intended message of the governor's card].

"If he is saying Christmas is about honoring all religions, I don't agree," said the Rev. Maury Davis of Cornerstone Church in Madison. source

I don't agree either. But Bredesen didn't even make Muslims happy with his Islamic Christmas card, as AOW points out:

And at least one Muslim has criticized the card. In happy-holiday wishes for Christians, Khaled Sakalla, spokesman for the Islamic Center of Nashville, has voiced criticism of the card: ...[I]f the governor saw a Muslim woman in Afghanistan as depicted — with her head partially uncovered — that's not the Muslim dress code.

"Women shouldn't have their faces fully covered, nor should they have their hair half-uncovered," Sakalla said.


Bear Creek Ledger, who is also in Tennessee, says:

Looks to me like he’s using a Christian holiday to pander to a religion that has nothing to do with Christmas. Why not put a Menorah on the card then?

Bredesen and his ilk need to listen to Rick Santorum. Mr. Santorum understands the threat we are against from Islam. The HILL Chronicles has audio of Mr. Santorum's 'farewell speech' and text can be read here. He calls the enemy 'evil' and he recognizes their goal, 'a world without America and Zionism'.

Is that goal possible? Yes, if we continue to submit inch-by-inch here inside America. Mr. Santorum quotes Bernard Lewis who said: "...that the oddity in particular of the Arab and Middle Eastern Islamic world is that the more we have strong relations with the government in an Arab Muslim country the more the people of that country hate us; and the more that we stand up and confront leadership of those countries the more the people like us."

The enemy thrives on the weakness of it's enemy. When Americans are weak and submissive it only enables the enemy to win this war. Trying to negotiate with Syria and Iran is a sign of weakness. They do not want to negotiate, they will not give up anything. North Korea knows what they are doing. Every time they have a little nuclear hissy-fit, we give them something. We show weakness.

We let Hugo Chavez come here in our home and slap us in the face. Weakness on our part. We tell Hamas 'no more money' until you recognize Israel's right to exist. Then we turn around and give them money. Weakness again.

Hezbollah may right now have established bases in Venezuela which have issued thousands of visas to people from places such as Cuba and the Middle East, possibly giving them passports to a vague United States border security.

... with the help of Venezuela, Cuba and China are now exploring for oil within 50 miles of the coast of the United States, while the Senate blocks a measure to allow us to explore for oil within 100 miles of our own shore. So while China, Cuba, and Venezuela draw oil from our shores, we stand idly by and let them do it to arm against us. source


Again we show weakness and the enemy takes advantage. We have cowards and traitors in our midst calling themselves politicians and patriots. This week we have a military build up in the Gulf, but our government was quick to reassure Tehran that we have no intention of attacking them or starting a war. I thought having a military presence was supposed to put the fear of God into our enemies. I guess I was wrong.

We worry about Iran with nuclear bombs, but my friend says, "With Pakistan and Russia selling the technology to all comers and Iran making all effort to get The Bomb, the Islamists have the Bomb."

Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Algeria, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Israel, Libya, China and Britain all either possess or are persuing nuclear weapons.

Nuclear technology and weaponry has had 61 years to spread around the world. source


We allow CAIR to determine what we can say and do about Islam in this country. We allow rogue imams to set what security measures we take on our passenger jets. We're afraid of offending anyone and we pur security in second place over political correctness.

Do I feel safer today? No, not from what is taking place inside our borders. Wake up folks. There is nothing accidental about what's going on. It is all written in the book, the Koran. It has been practiced for centuries. Wake up. Take back America from the PC police, from the 'we must not offend Islam or Muslims' crowd. We are a Christian nation and we can't even celebrate the birth of our savior without putting a Muslim on our Christmas cards? The White House can't send out an official card with the word Christmas on it? Just bend over and kiss America good-bye.

Al-Qaeda's No. 2 Urges Palestinians to Use Jihad, Not Elections

Click For Video

Al-Azwahiri declares Jihad on Palestine? Is he for Hamas or Fatah?

Dec. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Al-Qaeda's second in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, urged Palestinians to reject elections and wage Islamic holy war to ``liberate Palestine,'' warning that attempts to form a national unity government will fail.


``Any road other than jihad will only lead to loss and failure,'' al-Zawahiri said in a videotaped message broadcast today on the Qatar-based al-Jazeera television channel.


``Anyone trying to liberate the land of Islam through elections based on secular constitutions or on decisions to surrender Palestine to the Jews will not free a grain of sand,'' he said.

He's a little off point - I thought this escalation in violence in Gaza was over power and is Arab on Arab. Once again the irrational Muslim terrorist grabs an opportunity to blight the world again with his existence.

It kind of puts the same bad taste in my mouth as those Britney Spears photos...Oh! please...DO NOT e-mail any pictures of Al-Z without his panties ( at least none you wouldn't want to see posted here (wink!!)--thanks.
