Stop Funding Terrorists!

The Unity Coalition for Israel is soliciting emails in protest of military aid to Falestine. They want us to send this message to President Obama, the Cabinet and Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Letter to President Barack Obama

Dear Mr. President,

I am concerned that we have been squandering U.S. taxpayer dollars by assisting the Palestinian Authority with vast sums of money used to train Palestinians to kill. In addition to the $900 million your Administration offered the Palestinians on March 2, your training of 1,500 new Palestinian soldiers is costing American taxpayers another $161 million. During our severe financial crisis, our hard-earned tax dollars should be directed to more worthwhile causes in the U.S.

The funding lavished on the Palestinian Authority will not fulfill the domestic needs of the Palestinian people because there has never been, and probably never will be, any badly needed PA accountability. Both Hamas and Fatah are terrorist organizations that detest America and revile everything for which the United States stands. And yet they are in charge of the Palestinian Authority in Gaza and Judea and Samaria and they are the ones reaping the benefit of U.S. aid.

In addition to the $900 million your Administration offered the Palestinians on March 2, your training of 1,500 new Palestinian soldiers is costing American taxpayers another $161 million, money that would be better spent helping Americans during this current recession.

Lt. General Keith Dayton, U.S. security coordinator for Israel and the PA, insists that the “new men [receiving U.S. training]… are on a mission to create a new Palestinian State.” These are in addition to thousands of men already trained by the U.S. since the creation of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in 1994.

I implore you to stop training these Palestinian terrorists. This policy is not in the best interest of either the U.S. or Israel!

Abu Yusef, a member of the PA Chairman`s own security unit – Force 17, has an unambiguous view of this American military training of the Palestinians: “The operations of the Palestinian resistance would [not] have been so successful and would not have killed more than 1,000 Israelis since 2000 and defeated the Israelis in Gaza without [American military] trainings,” he boasted in an interview in August 2007. “All the methods and techniques that we studied in these trainings, we applied against the Israelis… with US-trained snipers targeting Israeli settlers and soldiers.” The special intelligence training they received from the U.S. instructors helped them “collect information on the movements of soldiers and settlers… [determining] the best timing to infiltrate our bombers inside Israel.” Abu Yusef specified: “We used weapons and we produced explosives, and of course the trainings we received from the Americans and the Europeans were a great help to the resistance.”

Why is the Obama Administration determined to further expedite this training? We need to hear the answer loud and clear!

In addition, there is no possible justification for blocking Israel`s request for advanced U.S. attack helicopters, denying our firm ally Israel a strong defense against the very warfare we are currently PAYING FOR. This policy is counterproductive to our support of our democratic ally and instead favors the enemies of Western civilization and the free world. This schizophrenic policy must stop!

The newly pledged international aid to the Palestinians would amount to $1,125- $1,300 dollars to each of the 4 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. This is on top of hundreds of millions of dollars in “humanitarian aid” sent to Hamas controlled Gaza by Israel, the U.S., European Union (EU), Saudi Arabia, Iran and other international organizations since December 2008.

Despite all this money pouring into the PA, Israel`s daily newspaper, Ha`aretz, on May 26th, the very day of your visit with PA leader Abbas, quoted PA representative Ahmed Qureia (Abu Ala), boasting “It`s not fair to demand that we recognize you [Israel] as the state of the Jewish people…Our refusal is adamant.” President Obama, why did you not demand that the Palestinian Authority recognize the State of Israel? Why are you now insisting U.S. taxpayers finance yet another losing Palestinian venture – a Palestinian terrorist state in the heartland of Israel?

As an American taxpayer, I strongly protest this dangerous U.S. support of international terrorism.

You say, Mr. President, that one country, the U.S., does not have the right to prevent another country (Iran) from becoming nuclear. Likewise it must follow that the U.S. does not have the right to prevent another country (Israel) from protecting itself from a nuclear attack. I respectfully ask that you permit Prime Minister Netanyahu to support his democracy and that you concentrate on supporting ours.

Signed,

I am in complete agreement with that missive, except for one word and its derivatives. Genuine Palestinians are Jews, not Muslim Arabs.
Please join me in endorsing and sending the email by clicking here: http://www.israelunitycoalition.org/aa/alert.php?id=43 . Wasting taxes is bad enough; funding the enemy is treason. I can’t stop it, but I can protest, and I can exhort others to join in protesting against wasteful treason.

There is something else you can do: sign the Defund HAMAS petition and send its url to your Congressman & Senators. Educating the Congress about this vital issue may be the most effective act we can take to stop the travesty of subsidizing the enemy.

Obamanation: Treason in Turkey

REMARKS BY PRESIDENT OBAMA

TO THE TURKISH PARLIAMENT

Turkish Grand National Assembly Complex

Ankara, Turkey April 6, 2009

Because the speech presents a target rich environment this post will
concentrate on the issue of relations with Islam. I will block quote
relevant excerpts from the prepared remarks, linking my comments with
superscripts inserted into the excerpts.

Now, our two democracies are confronted by an unprecedented set of challenges: An economic crisis that recognizes no borders; extremism that leads to the killing of innocent men and women and children1; strains on our energy supply and a changing climate; the proliferation of the world’s deadliest weapons; and the persistence of tragic conflict2.

In the Middle East, we share the goal of a lasting peace between Israel and its neighbors. Let me be clear: The United States strongly supports the goal of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security. That is a goal shared by Palestinians3,
Israelis, and people of goodwill around the world. That is a goal that the parties agreed to in the road map and at Annapolis. That is a goal that I will actively pursue as President of the United States.

Both must overcome longstanding passions and the politics of the moment4 to make progress towards a secure and lasting peace.

We must reject the use of terror5, and recognize that Israel’s security concerns are legitimate.

Now, I have made it clear to the people and leaders of the Islamic
Republic of Iran that the United States seeks engagement based on
mutual interest and mutual respect6. We want Iran to play its rightful
role in the community of nations. Iran is a great civilization7. We want them to engage in the economic and political integration that brings prosperity and security. But Iran’s leaders must choose whether they will try to build a weapon8 or build a better future for their people.

So both Turkey and the United States support a secure and united Iraq that does not serve as a safe haven for terrorists9.

Make no mistake, though: Iraq, Turkey, and the United States face a
common threat from terrorism10. That includes the al Qaeda terrorists who have sought to drive Iraqis apart and destroy their country. That includes the PKK. There is no excuse for terror against any nation.11 (Applause.) As President, and as a NATO ally, I pledge that you will have our support against the terrorist activities of the PKK or anyone else. These efforts will be strengthened by the continued work to build ties of cooperation between Turkey, the Iraqi government, and Iraq’s Kurdish leaders, and by your continued efforts to promote education and opportunity and democracy for the Kurdish population here inside Turkey.
12

Finally, we share the common goal of denying al Qaeda a safe haven in Pakistan or Afghanistan. The world has come too far to let this region backslide, and to let al Qaeda terrorists13 plot further attacks. That’s why we are committed to a more focused effort to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat al Qaeda14. That is why we are increasing our efforts to train Afghans to sustain their own security, and to reconcile former adversaries. That’s why we are increasing our support for the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan, so that we stand on the side not only of security, but also of opportunity and the promise of a better life.15

I know there have been difficulties these last few years. I know that
the trust that binds the United States and Turkey has been strained,
and I know that strain is shared in many places where the Muslim faith is practiced. So let me say this as clearly as I can: The United States is not, and will never be, at war with Islam16. (Applause.) In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world17 is critical not just in rolling back the violent ideologies that people of all faiths reject18,
but also to strengthen opportunity for all its people.

I also want to be clear that America’s relationship with the Muslim
community, the Muslim world, cannot, and will not, just be based upon opposition to terrorism19. We seek broader engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect20. We will listen carefully, we will bridge misunderstandings, and we will seek common ground21.
We will be respectful, even when we do not agree. We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith22, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country. The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans23. Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country –I know, because I am one of them. (Applause.)

Our focus will be on what we can do, in partnership24
with people across the Muslim world, to advance our common hopes and our common dreams.
25

There’s an old Turkish proverb: “You cannot put out fire with flames.”
America knows this. Turkey knows this. There’s some who must be met by force, they will not compromise. But force alone cannot solve our problems, and it is no alternative to extremism26. The future must belong to those who create, not those who destroy27. That is the future we must work for, and we must work for it together.


  1. Extremism’ is a shibboleth which must be deflated. The violence perpetrated by Muslim ‘terrorists’ is an intrinsic part of orthodox Islam, founded on several
    ayat, notably 3:151, 8:12, 8:60 & 3:26. The message of those ayat is confirmed by two ahadith: Bukhari 1.7.331 & 4.52.220.
  2. Tragic conflict’ persists because it is perpetuated by intrinsic and immutable
    doctrines of Islam. World conquest is mandatory, not optional under 2:216, 8:39 & 9:29.
  3. The charters of the PLO and Hamas indicate otherwise, as does the familiar mantra “from the river to the sea”.
  4. The passions date back nearly 1400 years, to Moe’s rejection by Jews living in the Hijaz who scorned his plagiarized mix of paganism, Christianity and
    Judaism. Allah said he would continually torment the Jews;
    and Moe said that the Muslims could not collect their reward until they finish exterminating the Jews. There will be no peace while Islam continues to propagate hatred and incite violence.
  5. So genocide & policide are ok with President Obama as long as there is no
    terror; the means justify the ends. Islam’s attitude is “we conquered
    it, its ours, and we will reconquer it if it takes till doomsday!”.
    Click the link to the Hamas Charter in #3 and read it carefully.
  6. There is no mutual respect. Islam is contemptuous of us and all non-Muslims.
    They are obligated to punish, humiliate and subjugate us, to defeat us
    and gather us into Hell. Is there some part of 8:55 & 3:12 that President
    Obama does not comprehend?
  7. The Persian civilization was conquered by Islam; it is dead and gone, supplanted by pure, unmitigated evil which inculcates hatred and incites violence.
    Cyrus the Great permitted rebuilding the Temple at Jerusalem. Islam demands the destruction of Israel. President Obama seems to be oblivious to the difference.
  8. That decision has been made, irrevocably. They must destroy Israel, and they need the bomb to accomplish that tactical objective.
  9. If it is Islamic, it is a safe haven for terrorists. Islam and terrorism are one and the same. Moe was a terrorist, by his own admission, cited and linked in #1. Shari’ah is
    the primary source of law for the new constitution of Iraq. Get a clue.
  10. Muslims practicing takfir will terrorize anyone they perceive as weak; unable or unwilling to effectively retaliate. Terrorism is intrinsic to Islam; the rule, not an exception. The texts linked in #1 make that perfectly clear.
  11. Is there any excuse for conquest, rape, pillage, plunder & enslavement with or without inflicting terror? Please follow the links in #1 & #2.
  12. Education, opportunity, democracy etc. are irrelevant. Terrorism is a function of
    doctrines, not grievances.
  13. Al-Qaeda means “the base”. Ummah al-Islamiya is the base of the pyramid of Islam. Islamic law requires a minimum of one military expedition against Kufar
    in every year. That requirement predates Abd al-Wahhab & co. Read chapter 9 of Book O of Umdat as-Salik.
  14. So long as Islam exists, al-Qaeda can not be defeated, its fallen martyrs
    will always be replaced and resupplied.
  15. They don’t want opportunity and a better life, they want to conquer the entire world, obtaining Allah’s approval and subsequent admission to the celestial bordello. Shari’ah is the primary source of law for Afghanistan’s new
    constitution. Get a clue.
  16. Islam is at war against Dar ul-Harb: the entire non-Muslim world; wherever
    Allah’s writ does not rule. Follow the links in #2 and #13; read O9.8 & 9.9 Get a clue.
  17. We have no partnership with Muslims, it is explicitly forbidden by several ayat including 3:118, 5:51, 58:22, & 60:1.
  18. Violence is not part of an external ideology, it is intrinsic to Islam! Read the ayat linked in #2 and get a clue. Islam does not reject violence, it mandates it: “Jihad
    is ordained for you”.
  19. Good idea; we should also consider Jihad, genocide, misogyny and subjugation of Kufar, each and every one of which is ample cause for rejecting Islam.
  20. There is no mutual respect. Refer to #6.
  21. There is no common ground with Islam. Islam declares Allah to be the creator of the earth and everything on it; therefore sovereign over it and us. Allah
    has delegated to Islam the right to be regent over the entire world.
    Theologically, Islam denies the divinity, heritage, death & resurrection of Jesus Christ and co-opts him as a genocidal warmonger. These facts are fully documented in another blog post: The Defamation of Jesus Christ.
  22. What does President Obama appreciate about Islam besides the sound of the Adhan at sunset? Could it be the 270 million untimely deaths it has caused?
  23. Contributions made by individuals who may be Muslim in name only are not a legitimate source of pride for Islam.
  24. Refer to #17.
  25. Common dreams? Do we dream of world conquest; ruling and dominating the entire world? If you doubt me, read my blog post: ROPMA.
  26. Extremism is a shibboleth. Standard, off the shelf orthodox Islam is violent because it is a demonic mandate to genocidal conquest using terror as a battle
    tactic. There is no alternative to war when we are attacked by Islam
  27. Islam destroys, it does not create. Allah has pronounced an execration
    against the Muslims if they ever abandon Jihad in favor of productive pursuits.

Tokens of Treason

In remarks prepared for delivery to the Wilson Center August 1, 2007, then Senator Obama expressed ideas which can only result from extreme ignorance or treason. I became aware of this speech through a quote in a Los Angeles Times opinion article by Jack Miles.

In that speech, Senator Obama expressed his intention to address a major Islamic forum “to redefine our struggle“. Jack Miles indicates that the speech is to be delivered to the Turkish Parliament Monday, April 6, 2009.

When President Obama addresses the Turkish parliament on Monday, he will have the chance to fulfill a campaign promise. Before the secular legislature of a Muslim-majority country — and with the entire Muslim ummahummah listening — he can state plainly that the United States is not at war with Islam.

I have selected some of the most egregious idiocies from the prepared text, including them here ( in block quotes) differentiated from my comments by font style.

[]We did not develop new capabilities to defeat a new enemy or launch a comprehensive strategy to dry up the terrorists’ base of support.[]

There is no new enemy; we are assailed by an old enemy, one which attacked our commercial shipping in the 18th century: Islam. When Thomas Jefferson and John Adams asked Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman by what right the Barbary Pirates attacked our ships, he gave them a clear answer, one which should be taken to heart by our present leaders.

The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven. [Wikipedia]

Their “right and duty” to attack us is written in the Koran. Who will bother to read 8:39, 8:60, 9:29 and 9:123? Not our President, neither our legislators, nor our military officers; they can’t be bothered with reality, preferring to live in fantasy land.

The “terrorists’ base of support” is the Ummah al-Islamiya, ordinary Muslims who contribute Zakat toward their support. Those who stay at home are required to contribute to the support of the Mujahideen at the front.

[]Just because the President misrepresents our enemies does not mean we do not have them. The terrorists are at war with us. The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims, but the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.[]

Presidents Carter, Clinton Bush & Obama all misrepresented our enemy, claiming that we are assailed by a “tiny minority of extremists” motivated by legitimate grievances. Islam is the enemy, driven by immutable intrinsic doctrines enshrined in the Koran and exemplified in Moe’s sunna. Casting terror into the hearts of Islam’s enemies is an intrinsic sacrament, clearly established by 3:151, 8:12, 8:60, 33:26 & 59:2 and confirmed by Bukhari 4.52.220 & 1.7.331.

Islam is at war with us, and all non-Muslims not under a treaty of protection imposed upon victims of Islamic intimidation and conquest. The war is dictated by Allah’s commands in 8:39 & 9:29, which Moe confirmed in Bukhari 1.8.387, saying “I have been ordered to fight”. It is Shari’ah, codified in Umdat as-Salik O9.8.

The “terrorists” do not “distort Islam”; they obey Allah who ordered them to “strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemiesand emulate Moe, who said “I have been made victorious with terror“. Islam is fighting against us, and we should be fighting to secure life & liberty.
.

[]But America must be about more than taking out terrorists and locking up weapons, or else new terrorists will rise up to take the place of every one we capture or kill. That is why the third step in my strategy will be drying up the rising well of support for extremism.[]

“Extremism” is a shibboleth which must be exposed. The founder of Islam bragged about winning with terror. Allah commanded it, Moe exemplified it: it is the standard, unexceptional. Terrorism’s well of support is the Koran, its support flows through the family, Mosque and every structure of Islamic society.

[]We know where extremists thrive. In conflict zones that are incubators of resentment and anarchy. In weak states that cannot control their borders or territory, or meet the basic needs of their people. From Africa to central Asia to the Pacific Rim – nearly 60 countries stand on the brink of conflict or collapse. The extremists encourage the exploitation of these hopeless places on their hate-filled websites.[]

That paragraph alludes to and reinforces another shibboleth: “terrorism is grievance driven”. Numerous splodydopes were from middle and upper class families, students of law & medicine, with promising careers in prospect. They chose to end their lives in an effort to kill Kufar, please Allah and gain admission to the Celestial Bordello.

Their “hate-filled websites” reflect the contents of their hate-filled Koran, hadith & Shari’ah. Those Muslims are not hopeless, they hope to conquer and dominate the entire world, as Allah promised they will.

[]America is at war with terrorists who killed on our soil. We are not at war with Islam. America is a compassionate nation that wants a better future for all people. The vast majority of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims have no use for bin Ladin or his bankrupt ideas. But too often since 9/11, the extremists have defined us, not the other way around.[]

Islam is at war against us, a war declared in 623 and re-affirmed in 2001, 2002 and 2003. If they had no use for “bankrupt ideas” of world conquest, they would be Apostates, not Muslims.

[]As President, I will lead this effort. In the first 100 days of my Administration, I will travel to a major Islamic forum and deliver an address to redefine our struggle. I will make clear that we are not at war with Islam, that we will stand with those who are willing to stand up for their future, and that we need their effort to defeat the prophets of hate and violence. I will speak directly to that child who looks up at that helicopter, and my message will be clear: “You matter to us. Your future is our future. And our moment is now.”[]

Their future, promised by Allah, is total world conquest and domination. The Prophet of “hate and violence” was Moe, who revealed Allah’s conquest, genocide & terror imperatives. “Your future is our future. And our moment is now.” President Barack Hussein Obama is one of them. You fools, what have you done!

Rampage in Mumbai

Warning Graphic Pictures!


Hostages were rescued from the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, India, after attacks in the Indian financial capital left at least 78 dead and hundreds wounded.

Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the capital of the Indian state of Maharashtra and the financial capital of India. With an estimated population of thirteen million, it is one of the most populated cities in the world. Along with the neighboring suburbs of Navi Mumbai and Thane, it forms, at nineteen million, the world’s fifth most populous metropolitan area. Mumbai lies on the west coast of India and has a deep natural harbour. Mumbai’s port handles over half of India’s maritime cargo. The commercial and entertainment centre of India, Mumbai generates 5% of India’s GDP and accounts for 25% of industrial output, 40% of maritime trade, and 70% of capital transactions to India’s economy.

Evidence of Mumbai’s history dates back to 250 BCE and has been continually inhabited since then, although its founding can be considered at a much earlier date.

A very lovely and lively city.

But not today. Today it is the scene of carnage, mayhem and death caused by the Religion of Peace aka Islam.

Full Story

Several sites in Mumbai, India’s financial capital, were hit Wednesday night by a wave of terror attacks, reportedly aimed at Americans and Britons, that left dozens dead and hundreds injured as Indian forces battled with terrorist gunmen to free hostages from two luxury hotels.

There were varying reports of at least 50 and as many as 100 people rescued from the Taj Mahal where a fire had broken out, and India’s NDTV reported Thursday morning that authorities had the scene under control. Meanwhile, police continued to evacuate people through the Oberoi hotel’s basement, and gunmen reportedly had taken hostages elsewhere in the city.

Casualty figures varied, with most media reporting at least 80 dead and 200 injured. Of the gunmen, four were dead and nine arrested.

It isn’t clear yet what motivated the attacks, which also targeted a popular tourist attraction and a crowded train station, though eyewitnesses said gunmen were heard shouting questions about who American and British passports.

Mumbai has frequently been targeted in terrorist attacks blamed on Islamic extremists, including a series of bombings in July 2007 that killed 187 people.

A little-known organization calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen claimed it was behind attacks.

A man injured in a gun battle is carried to a hospital in Mumbai, India.


“The terrorists have used automatic weapons and in some places grenades have been lobbed,” Maharashtra Police Commissioner A.N Roy said.

A British citizen who was dining at the Oberoi hotel told Sky News television that the gunmen who struck there singled out Britons and Americans.

Alex Chamberlain said a gunman, a young man of 22 or 23, ushered 30 or 40 people from the restaurant into a stairway and ordered everyone to put up their hands. He said the gunman spoke in Hindi or Urdu.

“They were talking about British and Americans specifically. There was an Italian guy, who, you know, they said: ‘Where are you from?” and he said he’s from Italy and they said ‘fine’ and they left him alone. And I thought: ‘Fine, they’re going to shoot me if they ask me anything — and thank God they didn’t,” he said.

Chamberlain said he managed to slip away as the patrons were forced to walk up stairs, but he thought much of the group was being held hostage.

Early Thursday, several European lawmakers were among people who barricaded themselves inside the Taj, a century-old seaside hotel complex and one of the city’s best-known destinations.

“I was in the main lobby and there was all of a sudden a lot of firing outside,” said Sajjad Karim, part of a delegation of European lawmakers visiting Mumbai ahead of a European Union-India summit.

The scene in the train station after the attack.

As he turned to get away, “all of a sudden another gunmen appeared in front of us, carrying machine gun-type weapons. And he just started firing at us … I just turned and ran in the opposite direction,” he told The Associated Press over his mobile phone.

Hours later, Karim remained holed up in a hotel restaurant, unsure if it was safe to come out.

The British Foreign Office said it was advising all British citizens in Mumbai to stay indoors.

Britain’s foreign secretary, David Miliband, strongly condemned the attacks. “Today’s attacks in Mumbai which have claimed many innocent victims remind us, yet again, of the threat we face from violent extremists,” Miliband said in a statement.

India has been wracked by bomb attacks the past three years, which police blame on Muslim militants intent on destabilizing this largely Hindu country. Nearly 700 people have died.

Since May a militant group calling itself the Indian Mujahideen has taken credit for a string of blasts that killed more than 130 people. The most recent was in September, when a series of explosions struck a park and crowded shopping areas in the capital, New Delhi, killing 21 people and wounding about 100.

This story is still on going with more deaths to be expected. That the terrorist were using automatic weapons and grenades, the scale of the attack, and the number of attackers, leads me to the conclusion that this wasn’t the work of some splinter group, but the work of a major terrorist group. It is just too large of a scale to be done with such precision and timing by a small splinter group.

Deccan Mujahideen may have taken credit for this, but I do believe that the real forces behind these attacks are Indian Mujahideen and Al Qaeda. Only they have the means, money and power to plan and execute such an attack.

I have a standing search for articles about the Moderate Muslim Majority Rejecting Terrorism. Today the search reported this article, from which I have excerpted two brilliant gems of idiocy.

More Muslims reject violence

August 2, 2007

“Overall, majorities in 15 of 16 Muslim publics surveyed say that suicide bombings can be rarely or never justified,” according to the report. Bangladesh, Indonesia, Jordan, Lebanon and Pakistan registered the most impressive drops, compared to 2002 numbers.

Every Muslim who loudly and consistently condemns acts of violence by those who distort the true meaning and purpose of Islam, including bin Laden, deserves praise.

    So, suicide bombings ain’t justified. Whoopie!!! Why didn’t the Pew Global Attitudes Project survey attitudes toward bombings, shootings, knifing and rocket attacks that do not involve the death of the perpetrator?  Oh, but they condemn attacks on innocent civilians! Great! Only Muslim civilians are innocent.  Disbelievers are Kuffar: rebels against Allah; najis, not innocent. Our abode is Hell and its every Muslim’s duty to send us there.

    Exactly who are those who “distort the true meaning and purpose of Islam” ?  What is the true meaning and purpose of Islam?  The meaning is surrender.  The purpose is the personal empowerment and emolument of Muhammad and his Caliphs.

    “Moderate Muslims” swear that aggression, genocide and terrorism are haram; they have no place in Islam. Should we believe them, or should we believe Allah and his Messenger?  What did Allah and his Messenger say about this subject?

  • 2:216 Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know.
  • 8:39 And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.
  • 9:29 Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”

The “Moderate Muslims” tell us that the lesser Jihad is haram. Allah said that it is ordained for Muslims.Allah said fight them until only Allah is worshiped; until they submit and pay tribute.  Muhammad said that he was “ordered to fight the people” until they submit, when their blood and property will become sacred to Muslims. Muhammad declared open season on us!

  • 3:151 We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).
  • 8:12 Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.
  • 33:26 And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
  • 33:27 And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.
  • Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220: …”I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.“…

So terror is haram? Why then did Allah sanctify and command it? Why did Muhammad practice it? Why did Muhammad brag about it?

  • 8:67 It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
  • Abu Dawud Book 38, Number 4390:
    Narrated Atiyyah al-Qurazi:
    I was among the captives of Banu Qurayzah. They (the Companions) examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair.

So genocide is haram:  “made a great slaughter”?  Muhammad had 800 prisoners of war and their adolescent sons decapitated. Yeah, right: genocide is haram in Islam!

What should Muslims do about it? Let us consult the standard handbook of Islamic law: Reliance of the Traveler to see what the Caliph should do.

  • O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
    The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
    “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),

That’s awful! Lets get a second opinion!

  • Al-Shafi’i (God have mercy on him) said: “The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims’ interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse.”

I call for genuine Moderate Muslims who reject conquest, genocide and terrorism to publicly proclaim the above cited ayat & ahadith to be the result of Satanic influence [22:52],  null & void; neither to be believed nor carried out. I call for them to sign and promote the Moderate Muslim Majority Rejecting Terrorism   petition. I call for the Grand Mufti at Al-Azhar to issue a fatwa forbidding the practice of Lesser Jihad, genocide and terrorism; abjuring the above cited ayat & ahadith and fiqh. I call upon CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, FMCAT & AIFD   to do the same.

Last, but not least, I call on the elected leadership of this nation to quit spewing feces such as President Bush spewed at the American Legion Convention:

The murderers and beheaders are not the true face of Islam; they are the face of evil. They seek to exploit religion as a path to power and a means to dominate the Middle East. The violent Islamic radicalism that inspires them has two main strains.

Islam, as preached and practiced by Muhammad, is the true face of evil. Muhammad created Islam for the purpose of accruing wealth, income, power and sex slaves. That’s what Islam is. That’s what Islam does. It is not hijacked, distorted nor perverted. Neither is it moderate nor radical; it is Islam.  I disrespectfully demand that those who lead us, those who seek to lead us and those who claim to educate & inform us  quit spewing feces and acknowledge objective factual reality.
