Stop Enabling Stealth Jihad and Creeping Sharia

Stop Enabling Stealth Jihad and Creeping ShariaThe impact a word can have is infinite. Repeating a word over and over until it is common place can have the direst of consequences. It’s time to make a stand and call things as they are.

 

On September 17, 2001, just six days after the worst attack on American soil, President Bush gave a speech at the Islamic Center of Washington, D.C.  Below is the end of that speech, in which he stated:

“These acts of violence against innocents violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith.  And it's important for my fellow Americans to understand that.

The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam.  That's not what Islam is all about.  Islam is peace.  These terrorists don't represent peace.  They represent evil and war.

When we think of Islam we think of a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world.  Billions of people find comfort and solace and peace.  And that's made brothers and sisters out of every race -- out of every race.

America counts millions of Muslims amongst our citizens, and Muslims make an incredibly valuable contribution to our country.  Muslims are doctors, lawyers, law professors, members of the military, entrepreneurs, shopkeepers, moms and dads.  And they need to be treated with respect.  In our anger and emotion, our fellow Americans must treat each other with respect.

Women who cover their heads in this country must feel comfortable going outside their homes.  Moms who wear cover must be not intimidated in America.  That's not the America I know.  That's not the America I value.

I've been told that some fear to leave; some don't want to go shopping for their families; some don't want to go about their ordinary daily routines because, by wearing cover, they're afraid they'll be intimidated. That should not and that will not stand in America.

Those who feel like they can intimidate our fellow citizens to take out their anger don't represent the best of America, they represent the worst of humankind, and they should be ashamed of that kind of behavior.”

Although I didn’t agree with what he stated, I understood at the time why he said it. Right after September 11, we had many incidents of mosques being vandalized. People were being beaten and killed, some of whom were not even Muslim, but rather Hindu’s and Sikh men. These had been mistaken to be followers of Osama bin Laden because of their turbans and beards.

Things were truly getting out of hand. Hate crimes were up by astounding rates. According to an article by the Associated Press on June 29, 2003:

“Hate crimes against people because of their ethnicity or national origin--those not Hispanic, not black and not Asian or American Indian--also increased sharply, from 354 in 2000 to 1,501 in 2001. That category includes people of Middle Eastern descent or origin. The increases, the FBI said, occurred "presumably as a result of the heinous incidents that occurred on Sept. 11.”

But the statement “Islam is a religion of peace” has been stated over and over by many a politician thousands of times. It has now become mainstream and common place. So much so, that this continued all the way through the Bush Presidency. On October 4, 2007 George W. Bush spoke on Al Arabiya television and claimed that:

“The Islamic religion is a great religion that preaches peace.”

The very next day, on October 5, he hosted an iftar event at the White House, celebrating the daily breaking of the fast observed by Muslims during the month of Ramadan. Here he said:

“That’s not a Christian act to kill innocent people, and those who carried out the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington do not reflect the views of the vast majority of peaceful people in the Middle East.”

Funny that he even stated that at a Ramadan get-together. Well Mr. Bush, I can agree with that statement: “That’s not a Christian act to kill innocent people”. But then again, Muslims are not Christians are they?

As they often do with so many other statements, Muslim leaders and C.A.I.R. (Council on American Islamic Relations) are experts on utilizing what people say to their advantage.  So, what started in order to quell anger and violence led to other “politically correct” terms.

Think back to pre-9/11 days. Do you recall anyone using the term “Radical Muslim” or “Moderate Muslim”? Interesting if you think about it; it’s not like we hadn’t seen Muslim terrorists in the news prior to 9/11.

Remember the Munich Olympic Massacre of 1972? The P.L.O. murdered 11 Israeli athletes and a German policeman in front of the entire world. Did the news refer to them as “radical Muslims”? No, they called them what they were; Muslim terrorists.  Remember here in the U.S. the first time they tried to bring down the towers on February 26, 1993? Were they “radical Muslims” then? No, they were terrorists.

Now, we have the Obama administration, who in their infinite wisdom has removed each and every word from the National Security Strategy (pdf) that in any way, shape or form refers to Islam. No longer will anyone that works for the Government be allowed to say, use or write “Islamic terrorist”, “Islamic extremist”, “Jihad”, “Jihadist”, “ Islamist”…  you get the point. I am sure the term “Muslim maniac” is out as well, even though that wasn’t specifically mentioned.

Utilizing the word “Radical” when describing a Muslim terrorist, suggests that there is such a thing as a “Moderate” as well.  I am not saying all Muslims are terrorists. I am saying there is no moderate Islam. There are plenty of Muslims who aren't actively furthering the cause of jihad. But that doesn't mean that there is a form of Islam that is peaceful and non-supremacist.

I know I will take a lot of flak for that last comment; I will be accused of ‘hate speech’. Well, if you want hate speech, read the Quran!

Instead of believing what I say, allow me to quote the guest I had just last week on my radio show “America Akbar”. My guest was Dr. Thomas Ahmed. Dr. Ahmed is an Islamic convert who was born and raised in Sudan. A holder of 5 university degrees and expert on Islam, he is now an ordained Christian minister.

Dr. Ahmed is also the author of 12 books, all dealing with the problems of women in Muslim societies and the hidden causes that led to tragic events such as September 11. During my interview with him, we were discussing how anyone who says they are a Muslim must believe and embrace Sharia law. Dr. Ahmed made a telling comment referring to Muslim Americans:

“A Muslim is a Muslim, no matter where they live in the world”. “The terms “radical” and “moderate” Muslim is a Western term, you never hear these terms in Muslim countries”.

This point holds true for each and every Muslim. They must subscribe to all of the Quran and the Hadith. They cannot pick and choose what parts or verses they like or they would not be a “true” Muslim. So, once again, I am not saying all Muslims are terrorists. I am saying there is no moderate Islam.

If we continue to use words like “moderate” and “radical” we are subscribing to the famous quote by Lenin “A lie told often enough becomes truth”.

This week I had Usama Dakdok as a guest on my show. Usama was born in Egypt and raised in a Christian home as the son of a Baptist pastor. Usama learned about Islam in school because it was, and still is, a mandatory subject. To further his knowledge of Islam, he studied Islamic law in college and came to the U.S. in 1992. In 2001 Usama founded the Straight Way of Grace Ministry.

He travels throughout the United States equipping Christians to be effective witnesses of Jesus Christ to their Muslim neighbors, as well as ministering to Muslims directly.

We spoke about “moderate” vs. “radical” Islam and Usama, who is very to the point to say the least, stated:

“There is no such thing as a ‘moderate Muslim’,’ moderate Muslim’ exists only on paper. A moderate Muslim is a good Muslim who is practicing Taqiyya”. (Lying as commanded by the Quran and Hadith to further Islam)  “Islam is worse than a cancer that is spreading throughout America”.

We, all of us, need to stop enabling the Muslims in this country and throughout the world. If you use the term “radical” or “moderate”, stop! If you hear someone else using it, correct them!

I have said in every lecture and written many times before: political correctness will be the death of this country. You think I am being too harsh? You think I am spewing hate or imagining how much power a word can have?

Think about it, first they were “terrorists” and then they were labeled as “radicals”. Then, quite recently, as in the case of Major Nidal Hasan, after he shot and murdered 13 and wounded 30, he was termed “misunderstood” and no news station said he was a Muslim. The 86 page report by the Pentagon never even mentions his motives even though he screamed “Allah Akbar” as he shot his fellow soldiers in cold blood. What’s more is that the words “Islam” or “Muslim” are never mentioned in 86 pages.  Not even once. Even though his personal business cards were inscribed with the letters SoA (“Soldier of Allah”).

Then we had the SUV bomber in Times Square, ah yes, Faisal Shahzad. He was the victim. Remember the first reports? He was laid off, lost his mortgage and was “upset”.

No, the truth was: he quit his job and stopped paying his mortgage because he knew he was going to carry out Jihad in America. It would be stupid to pay your mortgage when you are traveling back and forth to Pakistan 13 times in one year for training and to be a good Muslim.

Stop enabling and before you call me or anyone else who speaks out on Islam a bigot or a hater, read the damn Quran. Then we’ll talk.

    Very well said, Gadi, and I totally agree that PC has been, and will be the down fall of America. People are too, "let's get along to get along" and look at where that has gotten us.

    When it comes up, I am frequently correcting people, "Islam is not a religion, it's a political theosophy under the guise of a religion to get around our laws via our Constitution".

    I fully admit I'm a bigot, a bigot against those with ideologies that wish to take me down and take down America and our Constitution, no matter your skin pigmentation, gender, class, political party, sexuality, religion, demographics, language, DNA and whatever I missed. If in your heart, mind, voice, choice of ideology, and actions show you wish to do me, and others, harm and destroy American and our Constitution, yea, I'm not fond of you and will resist you and your ideals.

    Excellent article. I hope lots more people will read it, you state the truth. I hope our country wakes up soon. Pity that the reporters are no longer doing their job here. Thanks for spreading the truth!!

  • Thomas Hockenbury  - "Muslim Religion Is Not Of GOD"

    "Muslim Religion Is Not Of GOD"

    Some Statement, Uh? Well The First Commandment Says "Thou Shalt Have No Other gods Before Me".
    According To The Bible There Are No Other Gods. GOD Is The Only GOD There Is. All The Rest Are Demons Cooked Up By Satan To Trick People Into Serving Him. I'm Not Going To Debate Fools Over This. For There Is A Heaven & And There Is A Hell. Allah Is Just A Demonized Cult That Satan Uses To Try To Fight GOD And His People. It's Simple, Serve GOD And You Go To Heaven. Serve Allah (A Demon) And You Go To Hell.

  • PatriotUSA  - Taqiyya and moderate islam

    Great article Gadi and the comments on taqiyya are truly spot on. I have been bringing up
    taqiyya ever since I started studying islam, shari law, hadith and sira. It is truly a tool
    that is used by islam and muslims all the time.
    It extends down to the smallest of lies all the way up to the sanitized, whitewashed qur'an that the likes of Cair, MB, MSA etc..
    are always handing out. It is why there are
    usually TWO services at most mosques. One of the best books anyone can read, and I call it a MUST READ is "Stealth Jihad" by Robert Spencer. It was one of the books that really opened my eyes to the threat of islam to this country and the entire free world.

    the potus has quite a bit to learn about
    realy using taqiyya effectively. he should have got some lessons from all those muslims
    at the ramadan dinner. Seems that he also has
    bagged the National Day Of Prayer Dinner for the 2nd year in a row. What a loser.

  • seifturki  - Allah definitely misleads his creatures

    What is the main work of the devil (Iblis, or Satan)? The answer is in Al-A’raf (7-16,17); to lure humans into sin, or to mislead humans. What about Allah? Believe it or not Allah does the same thing to mislead humans! Look at the following Quranic verses: Al-Nahl (16-93), Al-Ra’d (13-27), Ibrahim (14-4) all of them confirm that Allah guides those He wishes and misleads those He wishes. In Al-Nisa’ (4-88 and 143), AL -Shura (42-46), Al-Kahf (18-17) confirm that you will not be able to guide those that Allah misled. Look at Al Baqara (2-10) it says that the unbelievers have sickness in their hearts and Allah increased their sickness. Can you believe that? Instead of guiding them Allah increased their sickness!! Allah even gets angry at those humans who try to guide those that God mislead! Look at Al-Nisa’ (4-88): “Are you trying to guide those that God misled? In Al-Araf (7-16,17) Satan misleads humans as above while in Al-Araf (7:18) Allah will fill up hell with those that are misled by Satan. Isn’t obvious here that there is joint venture cooperation between Satan and Allah as Iblis will mislead and Allah will fill up hell with them? Look up these verses yourself in the Arabic Quran to confirm it to your feeble mind. If you cannot read Arabic look at Pickthall translation because others use deception in interpretation as it would be very embarrassing to tell the truth about this strange relation between Satan and Allah!!!!
    Now that we know that Allah alone is fully responsible for misleading his creatures thus forcing them to become infidels, why would he ask his Moslem followers to kill these infidels, as shown very clearly in so many violent verses in the Quran? Look at the following few verses that call for killing the infidels unless they embrace Islam: Al Baqara 2(244), Al-Nisa’4(76,77,84,89), Al-Anfal 8(12,39), Al-Tawba 9:(5,14,29), 9(88,112,123), 47(4). All call to fight non-Moslems until all religion is that of Allah, or fight in Allah’s cause (Jihad), or to kill them wherever you find them until they pay Gezya submissively, which is a specially designed humiliating tax used only against non-Moslems. Here Allah shows utter naiveté as he exhort his Moslem followers to force the non-Moslems to embrace Islam (or be guided) when he told us in (4-88,143and many other verses as above) that those misguided by Allah could never be guided by man! Why Allah would exhort his Moslem followers to kill those who refuse to be guided, when he stated that they could never be guided? Accordingly he is either a cold blooded mass murderer ordaining his Moslem followers to do his dirty work or, as some Islamic authorities tells us, just wanted to test the loyalty of his followers! Really! Are our Moslem apologists telling us that Allah, the omniscient, does not know whether his followers will obey his instructions or not? What is the purpose of a test except to know the future result? What is the wisdom in creating infidels and asking his followers to kill them, while getting killed in the process as in (9:111)? Wouldn’t be easier for Allah not to create them in the first place, and save a lot of his followers in the process? So far almost 95% of the victims are Moslems especially in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. How many of these victims were true Moslem believers and Moslem children?
    Obviously we have many questions but of course no logical answers. Aren’t there enough average minded Moslems who would ponder about the answers? Or are they in the name of faith became stupid robots who follow blindly the teachings of devious mullahs? I believe any Moslem should be able to check the above assertions, at least to prove me wrong, before they indulge in new violence and hate of the other.

  • EMA  - response

    Gadi - When are the rest of our population going to realize that the media, in all its glory, is only going to print what they want us to read!
    Keep up your wonderful and informative columns and perhaps someday soon you'll have the "unwashed millions" understanding how we have been duped and lied to by our Free Press!
    Way to go!

  • Kinana  - I sympathise

    But Muslims are individuals who can and do choose what they believe and specifically how much of Islam they actually believe. That is why I believe that there is no such thing as a moderate Islam but individual Muslims can be moderate because they choose to believe only part of what Islam teaches. Now that will make them bad Muslims and even not Muslims at all but to there way of thinking and from the outside they are 'moderate.' To my way of thinking to think otherwise would be to say that Muslims as individuals do not have a conscience and freedom to choose what they believe, like everyone else. I accept though that as a matter of social policy and the need to protect society from the sharia promoters and enforcers they are most likely totally irrelevant.
