Most of us are aware of our foreign enemies, the Islamists, the Communists, the petty potentates. But what about our domestic enemies? Whom must we defeat on our own soil in order to save this great nation? The hardcore left? the America-haters? the Pelosis and Reids? those Hollywood swimming pool capitalist/commies? the Jane Fondas and Michael Moores? Forget it, they're beyond redemption. They're firmly committed, most often generationally committed, to the death of American style democracy and capitalism, and to the universal victory of collectivism. But despite their money and influence it wasn't the Barbra Streisands and the Sean Penns who were responsible for the Great Charlatan's victory this past November. Our real political foes, who by their inattention or gullibility are presently in the process of destroying this country, are some of the nicest people in the world. You know them well. They're your friends and neighbors, perhaps your sons and daughters. They've opened up their innocent hearts to the promise of Obama and voted for "Change we can believe in", fervently believing that our so-called Global War on Terror is nothing more than an overblown Republican ruse, another blatant attempt to accrue more right-wing power and wealth, another pointless Vietnam, that our problems with Islam began (and will hopefully have ended) with the presidency of George W. Bush. "Bush lied and thousands died", they say. And we must understand that they believe it, deeply, sincerely. Tolerance and pacifism are integral parts of their carefully constructed psyche: To achieve peace and harmony in this world, they tell us, we must lovingly embrace the Other, no matter how their morays or mores might conflict with ours. All religions are equally sacrosanct and above objective criticism (with the possible exception of certain loony fringe cults), even if they are overtly politicized. War is nothing but legalized violence, and is never, ever, the answer. Everyone and everything has rights: trees have rights, whales have rights, and enemy combatants have rights. These rights must never be abrogated or we'll lose our foundational moral integrity and sink to the level of our less-enlightened, or less privileged adversaries. Our material success is a crown of thorns -- we're weighed down by the guilty knowledge that our bounty is tainted with moral corruption and boundless greed. We've risen to our heights on the backs of the downtrodden of this world, the poor blacks and the colored peoples of this world, and we must finally admit to our inherent self-serving racism and bigotry, and try, somehow at least try, to make amends. We'll begin our national catharsis by electing a President from amongst the Other, a President who sees his role not as the leader of a great sovereign nation but rather as a citizen of the world, a President who sees America, not as a grand and glorious exception, but as just one state among many, bound by the universal laws of all the peoples of this world. Humility, not hegemony.
The celebrity activists (and our leftist MSM) have helped deliver this awful self-inflicted wound, but in the end it was the 'good people', our friends and neighbors, perhaps our sons and daughters, who went to the polls in droves and proudly cast their votes for the first black president of the United States of America, thus proving to this jaded world that we are no longer arrogant racists, and that we're willing to make amends. And it is this radiant but illusory vision of hope and promise that we must somehow brutally shatter if we are to survive the coming onslaught. There is hope and there is promise, but only if we are free and alive to achieve it.
So how do we reach these good-hearted but ill-advised liberals? How do we break through those barriers of comfortable self-righteousness? As our fellow patriot Maggie Thornton so aptly suggested, must they really be shown rather than told? Must they be subjected to multiple 9/11s before they're willing to face the truth of our imminent peril?
These good people aren't ignorant or even necessarily disinterested, they're busy, consumed in their everyday battles. They're generally optimistic: they feel that somehow things will 'work themselves out', they always do. These good people spend an average of twenty minutes a week getting their news from a leftist MSM. At the end of the day, what little time they have left they choose to spend with their families and their loved ones. They have neither the space nor the inclination in their hectic lives to study the Koran, nor to contemplate the inroads of Islam in Belgium. Yes, the good people of America are busy, busy with the business of making America great. They're what separate us from those lethargic and constantly rioting socialistic failures across the seas.
Of course the problem with this situation is that just being good isn't good enough. Being honest and hard-working and good just won't save them, and us. There were a lot of good, intelligent and industrious people in Germany in the twenties and thirties who by their inattention, by their silence, or their gullibility, allowed their country to be taken over by monsters and brought to ruin.
Our good people are just that: they're good, we're not angry with them, we love them, they're our only hope. When we write it's not to change the minds of any of those hardened far-left activists but to try to reach these decent, hard-working folks who would care if they really understood the gravity of their situation, our present situation. They're not asleep, they don't need to be "awakened", they've been awake for hours. They've already got the kids off to school and are on their way to work. No, they don't need to be awakened, but they need to be convinced, convinced that we truly are in mortal danger, that we truly are in a desperate war, a war that we absolutely must win. And somehow we must do the convincing.
Recently I got into a minor argument with a liberal friend of mine over the threat of Islam, and when I brought up the subject of CAIR my friend said that he'd never heard of them. This is what we're up against. This is an example of the shallowness of their cognizance. This is why we must continue this fight, no matter how hopeless it may seem. For we are one of the only avenues of truth out there and our fellow citizens are in dire need of truth and education. This is why our words matter, why our tireless research has meaning. This isn't some egocentric form of pedantic arrogance, it's simply a matter of life and death. - rg

MEMRI Special Dispatch- No. 2247 02/16/09
Abdallah Al-Nafisi, a Kuwaiti professor, had his speech broadcast by Al-Jazeera TV February 2. The following is a transcript of the English sub titles.
Four pounds of anthrax in a suitcase this big - carried by a fighter through tunnels from Mexico into the U.S. are guaranteed to kill 330,000 Americans within a single hour, if it is properly spread in population centers there What a horrifying idea. 9/11 will be small change in comparison. Am I right? There is no need for airplanes, conspiracies, timings, and so on. One person, with the courage to carry four pounds of anthrax, will go to the White House lawn, and will spread this "confetti" all over them, and then will do these cries of joy. It will turn into a real "celebration."
The WMD is a problem. The Americans are afraid that the WMDs might fall into the hands of "terrorist" organizations like Al-Qaeda and others. There is good reason for the American's fears, because Al-Qaeda used to have in the Herat region... it had laboratories in north Afghanistan. They have scientists, chemists and nuclear physicists. They are nothing like they are portrayed by these mercenary journalists - backward Bedouins living in caves. No, no. By no means. This kind of talk can fool only naive people. People who follow such things know that Al-Qaeda has laboratories just like Hizbullah.
Hizbullah has laboratories in South Lebanon, in which it produces weapons and sells them. Hizbullah has laboratories in South Lebanon, from which it sells weapons to Romania and Hungary.
If they call someone a terrorist, say: "He's a friend of mine." Why? Because these "terrorists" are the world's most God-fearing people. They are the most honorable people in the world, the best people in the world. [Applause.] I have personally met Mullah Omar. I had the honor of meeting with Mullah Omar. This is a man who does not belong to this era. He always refused to meet with Western delegations. He would say to them: "Go to Kabul, I am in Qandahar." "Truly, the polytheists are impure" - if you know what I mean. "Go meet the Foreign minister to talk politics, I am staying here. " This is the kind of people who are suitable for dealing with the West. As for Arafat, Dahlan, and their ilk - they do not benefit the nation in any way.
In the US, there are more than 300,000 militia members, who are calling to attack the federal government in Washington, and to banish the Arabs, the Jews, and the negoes (sic) from the US. These are racist people. They are called "rednecks." The Ku Klux Klan. They are racists. These militias even think about bombing nuclear plants within the US. May Allah grant them success, [Laughter.] even though we are not white, or even close to it, right? They have plans to bomb the nuclear plant at Lake Michigan. This plant is very important. It supplies electricity to all of North Africa (sic). May Allah grant success to one of these militia leaders, who is thinking about bombing this plant. I believe that we should devote part of our prayers to him. We should pray that Allah grants him success, so he can complete this mission, and we will be able to visit him and congratulate him, Allah willing.
Allah stated in the Koran that the hostility between us and (the Jews) is eternal. So whoever talks about Dialogue - cut off his tongue! What Dialogue are they talking about?! There is no room for Dialogue. Allah said that our hostility toward the Jews is eternal, and then along comes someone and talks about brotherhood and so on.... Anyone who contradicts the Koran is an infidel. Accusing people of heresy? Yes. I'm all for it. Yes, I support accusing people of heresy.
We should also defend the resistance, and not remain silent in the face of this organized campaign against the resistance, in the press of the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf, and other Arab newspapers. Thee are voices expressing doubts about the leaders of the resistance. We must confront these (journalists) and prevent them from continuing this, even if it means calling them over the phone, and saying to them: "Do not repeat these despicable things in your columns or your articles, or else we will take the following measures against you." We must resort to pressure with these people. We must not remain silent. We must not leave them to their own devices under the pretext of freedom of expression. This is a fifth column. I, abdullah Fahd Abd Al-Aziz Al-Nafisi, am inciting you to confront, using any means possible, anyone who speaks out against the resistance. Any means possible" - get it?
The Hamas ministers are mujahideen, I know a minister who actually participated in operations.
In Special Dispatch- No. 2281, 03/16/09, MEMRI quotes three "liberal" critics of Abdallah Al-Nafisi. One of them, columnist Ahmad Al-Sarraf, had this to say.
"More importantly, what would we, the Arabs and the Muslims, or [anyone else], gain if a religious fanatic carried out to the letter what this 'great thinker' said? For example, would the world be a more just, good, and peaceful place, or would this be this be the first sign of the coming of the awaited Mahdi, [who is said to arrive] when the world is filled with injustice and oppression?What are those, if not pragmatic arguments? Concern is expressed about outcomes, expected failure and possible retaliation. Where is the condemnation based on the intrinsic immorality of the proposal?
"What would be the response of the U.S. government and its people if we killed 330,000 innocent Americans in a single hour? Would we then become capable of getting Palestine back from the Israelis, the [UAE] islands back from the Iranians, Alexandretta back from the Turks, and Andalus back from the Spaniards? And what good would all that be if nuclear bombs fell on our heads and destroyed the little that is good in our countries?
"And are our feelings and emotions so dead that we are not bothered by [the prospect of] the death of 330,000 innocent Americans in a single hour - among whom may well be some of our own people, and true friends - just because the government of this country has helped one of our enemies? And as though we ourselves haven't been our own enemy for hundreds of years? Oh logic, oh reason: how beautiful you are, and how rare."The writer implies enmity to Israel, does he object to attacks against her as well? Would he have responded in this manner if Al-Nafsi had suggested an attack on Tel Aviv? Notice the qualifier: "innocent Americans". Are there "guilty Americans" who should be killed? Is Ahmad aware that Allah considers all Non-Muslims to be sinners who must be humiliated, punished and subjugated?
Dr. Al-Nafisi is a citizen of Kuwait, a nation with good reason to have a favorable attitude towards the USA. The speech was delivered to a an approving audience in Bahrain, another supposedly "moderate" Muslim nation.

A note from Radarsite: I could spend the remainder of my life (which, as some of my friends know, is somewhat circumscribed) responding to Obama's recent stupid and unforgivable anti-American speeches overseas. This misguided, totally uninformed anti-Americanism is the reason I started Radarsite. A year-and-a-half ago I wrote a small article titled "A Brief Message to America", wherein I attempted to envision what General "Old Blood and Guts" Patton might have to say to this current weak-kneed leftist/pacifist generation, were he around to say it. Surprisingly, I received more hate mail for this piece than for anything I have written either before or since. Of course, this reaction triggered a new article which I am reproducing here in the hope that it reinvigorates the patriots and shames the lily-livered PC libs who are hell-bent on destroying this great nation of ours. -rg
As some of you may know, I have written many articles critical of many things. Most often, of course, I've been critical of that dangerous Religion of Peace, called Islam. However, I have also found time to criticize feminists, liberals, Mexican-Americans, and even the Queen of England. But, no other article I have ever written has generated more angry hate mail, nor more malicious personal attacks than a short piece I wrote earlier this week.
No, it wasn't that one about those deadly Mohammad cartoons; and it wasn't that piece about the Jews and anti-semitism -- which I was certain would receive all kinds of objectionable comments, but actually received none.
The article that generated the most vicious and hateful responses -- even more than any of my anti-Islam pieces -- was that short essay I wrote in praise of America, A Brief Message to America. Even some of those people who had previously been generally acceptive of my point of view got upset enough to let me know about it. In sum, the common theme of these protests was that the article in question was "disgusting" and made them "sick". A lot of jokes about running to get the bucket. One angry commenter accused me of "never having written anything of value since I first started posting". I had, till then, never experienced real unmittigated visceral hatred for something I had written.
Evidently, the subject of patriotism is even more inflammatory and controversial than the subject of anti-semitism. What, I wonder, does this say about us here, today, in America? What does this tell us about ourselves that we don't already know? Do you find this as revealing as I do?
In general, I am being accused of two major personal faults: either being a "phony" or a "fool". To me, a phony is someone who says things that they don't really mean; therefore I am not a phony. As to being a fool, I suppose that's for others to decide. Some ninety per cent of the hate mail came from right here in the U.S. -- although, surprisingly, some of the most disturbing came from -- of all places -- New Zealand.
However, I am also happy to report that this little article unapologetically extolling the virtually-ignored virtues of America and Americans also garnered some of the warmest and most genuinely supportive comments I have ever gotten for any other piece (including, to my surprise, Fox News). The most fulsome praise for that article's praise of America came -- not surprisingly -- from our loyal allies in Australia. [See "KG's comments below]
The article is just an article -- but the reactions are significant. Significant and disturbing. This is the nature of our current and growing 'civil war'. These are the enemies we face.
For me, being patriotic is as natural and uncomplicated as loving your parents.
Are our parents without fault? Do they sometimes make mistakes? (although, I must admit, the older I get the less mistakes they seem to have made) The answer to both is of course, Yes. But they are our parents and we love them, don't we? We love them and we honor them, because they are good and they are decent and they have raised us up and nurtured us and protected us from harm to the best of their ability. And, again, the older I get, the more I appreciate how much they sacrificed for me so that I could have a chance at leading a free and productive life.
When I was an adolescent, I thought as an adolescent, and I was more than eager to find fault with them and with all of their 'phony values' and with the way they looked at this world. And I rebelled against them, as I rebelled against all authority figures and all of those loathsome symbols of The Establishment. In this way I was, of course, being a perfect conformist; conforming to the expectations of rebellious adolescence.
Thankfully, and finally, I've grown up now. After September 11, 2001, I've grown up even more -- as I'm sure a lot of us here have.
Over these past years, something has become increasingly apparent to me, a little theory of mine, which I can of course in no way corroborate with facts. It is simply this: the people I have known in my life who seem to be the most productive, the happiest, the most at ease with themselves and this world, are those people who speak of their parents with simple, unreserved affection, loyalty and love. Whether these were attributes which had always been present, or whether they were learned later on through life's experience -- as mine were -- they were almost invariably present and obvious.
I pity our enemies, for I think that they are unhappy and empty, I pity them as I pity all of those current rebellious adolescents who, for the sake of conforming to some perceived convention, have turned on their parents and their country and learned how to despise them and everything they stand for.
Maybe, if they live long enough...

A Brief Message to America
Posted by Roger W. Gardner at 4/09/2009 04:10:00 PM
On a recent visit to California, Geert Wilders, Dutch M.P., spoke about freedom of speech and the threat posed to it by Islam & the appeasers. Front Page Magazine published a transcript of the speech: Free Speech vs. Islam in Europe, which I urge you to read. The excerpt below packs a great deal of truth into one paragraph, without furnishing proof. Wilders left it to the audience to read the Koran and verify the truth for themselves.
Allow me to give you a brief introduction to Islam, an Islam 101. The first thing everyone needs to know about Islam is the importance of the Koran. As you probably know the Koran calls for submission, hatred, violence, murder, terrorism and war. The Koran calls upon Muslims to kill non-Muslims. The Koran describes Jews as monkeys and pigs. The biggest problem is that the Koran is to be considered as Allah’s personal word, with orders that need to be fulfilled regardless of place or time. That’s the reason why the Koran is not open to discussion or interpretation. It is valid for every Muslim and for all times. Therefore, there is no such thing as moderate Islam. Sure, there are a lot of moderate Muslims, but a moderate Islam does not exist. As the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan once said: “There is no moderate Islam, Islam is Islam”. For once I have to agree with this islamist Turkish Prime Minister.The Koran is available in many translations, languages and formats. I prefer the Hilali & Khan translation for research. Some prefer Shakir, and many prefer Yusuf Ali. The Resources page at Moe's Murder Cult contains links to sites from which you can download a fair variety of Korans and many other books.
For those who prefer reading on line, the Muslim Student Association at U.S.C. presents three parallel translations of the Koran and four hadith collections. Yet Another Qur'an Browser is a search engine which displays a table of up to ten translations. Search Truth has a hadith search engine which can search any of the four top hadith collections. Qtafsir has a search engine for Ibn Kathir's Tafsir, which explains that which should be obvious to you.
Shari'ah is also available on line; someone went to the trouble of scanning more than 1200 pages of Umdat as-Salik. That large, unformatted text file can be searched with the Windows search function invoked with the Ctrl F key combination. It takes a few minutes to load on dialup. Scribid displays a scanned image of the book. Somehow they arranged a means of searching it, which works much faster than I expected.
Craig Winn synthesized five major texts to produce The Prophet of Doom, which may be described as polemic. Reading it will require some patience and dedication; it stretches to 1000 pages. You can learn a great deal by browsing the Islamic Quotes section.

Ralph Peters exercised extreme clarity while writing about religious extremism in this article in the New York Post: Petting The Snakes. After reading these brief excerpts, click the link and read the entire article, paying particular attention to paragraphs including italic emphasis.
Of course, we didn't take faith's power seriously. We still don't. Washington continues, frantically, to deny that belief has anything to do with religious terrorism.To understand what Muslims believe and their belief affects their behavior, we need to become with the source of their belief: the Qur'an. The link at the end of the previous sentence goes to the Muslim Student Association site at U.S.C. It displays three parallel translations of Islam's canon of scripture. If you prefer a single translation with the translator's explanation of the text, try the work of Abdullah Yusuf Ali, one of the three provided by the M.S.A.
Fired by visions of serving an angry god, the terrorists are sure that they're bound to win, that all those of weaker belief will fall before them. Nothing short of death will make them quit.The key concept in that excerpt is triumphalism, derived from belief in Allah's promises of victory and reward. Read Know Thine Enemy (part 11) for a glimpse into the roots of Islam's triumphalism.
When dealing with those who believe they're on a mission from their god, our cult of negotiations plays into their hands. They'll break any agreement, when the time is right. A deal isn't a deal. Unbelievers have no standing.9:1-3 pretty well take care of that issue. Moe made a ten year treaty with Mekkah when he was weak, and broke it after three years when he had amassed an army.
Peter Ferrara Rush's fans have rights, too quotes a question asked by Justice Scalia during oral arguments in Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission.
"Do you think that there's a possibility that the First Amendment interest is greater when what the government is trying to stifle is not just a speaker who wants to say something but also a hearer who wants to hear what the speaker has to say?"The right of free speech implies a right to listen. Without listeners, the speech would be wasted. In the case of talk radio, the listeners have a many to one ratio. The rights of large numbers of people are threatened by proposed censorship.
Peter Ferrara points out other cases in which the same concept has been raised. Will the Supreme Court up hold those precedents? Will a majority of the court side with Justice Scalia?
I am not convinced that we can depend on either contingency coming to pass. We need to apply maximal political pressure to prevent the passage and enforcement of censorship laws and regulations. Representatives and Senators must be made to fear for their jobs if they support censorship, its our first line of defense. The initial case against McCain-Feingold confirmed the magnitude of the risk we take in relying on the last line of defense.

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.)
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.
- '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.
- '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.
- The charters of the PLO and Hamas indicate otherwise, as does the familiar mantra "from the river to the sea".
- 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.
- 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.
- 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?
- 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.
- That decision has been made, irrevocably. They must destroy Israel, and they need the bomb to accomplish that tactical objective.
- 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.
- 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.
- Is there any excuse for conquest, rape, pillage, plunder & enslavement with or without inflicting terror? Please follow the links in #1 & #2.
- Education, opportunity, democracy etc. are irrelevant. Terrorism is a function of
doctrines, not grievances.
- 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.
- So long as Islam exists, al-Qaeda can not be defeated, its fallen martyrs
will always be replaced and resupplied.
- 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.
- 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.
- We have no partnership with Muslims, it is explicitly forbidden by several ayat including 3:118, 5:51, 58:22, & 60:1.
- 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".
- 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.
- There is no mutual respect. Refer to #6.
- 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.
- 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?
- Contributions made by individuals who may be Muslim in name only are not a legitimate source of pride for Islam.
- Refer to #17.
- Common dreams? Do we dream of world conquest; ruling and dominating the entire world? If you doubt me, read my blog post: ROPMA.
- 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
- Islam destroys, it does not create. Allah has pronounced an execration
against the Muslims if they ever abandon Jihad in favor of productive pursuits.

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.
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.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.
[...]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.
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 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]
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 enemies" and 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.
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!
[...]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.”[...]
