This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

What Will Jesus Do?

A 6th century mosaic of :en:Jesus at Church Sa...
Image via Wikipedia

Muslims assert that they revere Jesus Christ as a Prophet. Here is an example from islamicity.

Muslims respect and revere Jesus, and await his Second Coming. They consider him one of the greatest of God's messengers to mankind. A Muslim never refers to him simply as 'Jesus', but always adds the phrase 'upon him be peace'. The Quran confirms his virgin birth (a chapter of the Quran is entitled 'Mary'), and Mary is considered the purest woman in all creation.

So Christians and Muslims share common ground as monotheistic faiths holding Jesus Christ in high esteem. Most readers are aware of the Christian Jesus, but unaware of the Islamic concept of Jesus. Allah's book, the Qur'an, will enlighten us. The following quotes are from the Hilali & Khan translation, linked to a table of ten parallel translations. [Emphasis added.]

3:59 Verily, the likeness of 'Iesa (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: "Be!" - and he was.

3:61 Then whoever disputes with you concerning him ['Iesa (Jesus)] after (all this) knowledge that has come to you, [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus)] being a slave of Allah, and having no share in Divinity)...

4:157-158 And because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah," - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of 'Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) ]: But Allah raised him ['Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allah is Ever All­Powerful, All­Wise.

4:159 ...And there is none of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), but must believe in him ['Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), as only a Messenger of Allah and a human being]...

23:91 . No son (or offspring or children) did Allah beget, nor is there any ilah (god) along with Him; ...

Islamic scripture denies Christ's divinity, paternity, crucifixion, death & resurrection. Why do Muslims anticipate the second coming? Our first hint comes from an obscure, off topic reference in Shari'ah, Islamic law codified in Reliance of the Traveller. I have added emphasis to the crucial text.

O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

The caliph (o25) 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: o11.4) -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),

the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

"I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"

this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

We learn from Shari'ah that the caliph is obligated to extend dawa to people having scriptural religions and to make war upon them if they reject Islam. We learn that he can accept extortion payments from them in lieu of conversion, but only until the second coming, after which Jizya will not be accepted. After Jesus returns, Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians must convert or die; only Islam will be accepted from them.

We learn that Jesus will be a successor to Muhammad and that he will rule by the Qur'an, not the Bible. It follows that he must make war upon Jews & Christians as all caliphs must do. For amplification we turn to one of the prophetic hadith of Muhammad which bears directly on this issue. [Emphasis added.]

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310:

Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.

Jesus will fight the people for the cause of Islam, just as Islamic law requires. Breaking the cross is an obvious reference to destroying Christianity. Killing swine is a metaphor for genocide of the remaining Christians. "As cited in Ibn Abbas: The apes are Jews, the keepers of the Sabbath; while the swine are the Christian infidels of the communion of Jesus."

Islamic prophesy depicts Jesus Christ as a genocidal warmonger, not the prince of peace. But thats not all, Islamic exegeses informs us that Jesus will lead the Muslims in exterminating the Jews. This quote is from Ibn Kathir's Tafsir of 7:167 : Eternal Humiliation Placed on the Jews.

In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world.

Now you know what Jesus will do: he will wage war against and kill Christians & Jews and rule the world as caliph, a successor of and subordinate to Muhammad. Jesus Christ: genocidal warmonger. So much for the "great religion of peace". So much for "common ground" & "inter religious dialogue". We have been lied to: Islam is a war cult, not a religion of peace and it co-opts Jesus Christ as a genocidal warlord. Now that you know, what will you do about it? Will you roll over and return to sleep or will you share your new found knowledge and seek more? Copy and paste this blog post into emails to your family, friends and associates. Send a copy to the Pastor of your church or Rabbi of your synagogue. Follow the links and read the Qur'an, hadith, tafsir & Shari'ah.

Missing GI in Afghanistan: Afghan Villages Warned

by Maggie at Maggie’s Notebook

An unnamed U.S. soldier is missing in Afghanistan and is known to be the victim of kidnapping. The U.S. Military wants the missing soldier back and has sent a sobering message to the residents in at least two villages in suspect areas. The leaflets contained a message and a warning to return our missing soldier.

Afghan Villages Warned

The graphic above shows the front side a leaflet produced at the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan with this message on one side:

The papers show on one side an image of a soldier with his head bowed so that his face is not visible (above). A message in the local Pashtun language over the image says, “If you do not free the American soldier, then…”

Afghan Villages Warned (photo backside)

The second graphic above is the backside of the first and says:

…you will be targeted”.

The military says the leaflet says “…you will be hunted,” but some translators say the word also means “targeted.”

Sources are inconclusive about how the leaflets got to the villagers: some reports say they were dropped from aircraft with the warnings seen in trees and on rooftops. A Military spokeswoman says they were delivered by hand, but says an aircraft leaflet-drop was made earlier to these villages notifying the people that a U.S. Soldier is missing and asking for information on his whereabouts:

U.S. Soldier Missing

The above graphic is not an actual picture the missing soldier. On the front it reads:

One of our American guests is missing.

The backside says:

Return the guest to his home. Call us at…,

Heart-wrenching appeals to the people who live among untold cruelty at the hands of those who are in possession of one of our own.

A Taliban militant said the U.S. Military has made three previous attempts to find the GI, but failed. He said the soldier is in a safe and secure place in a Taliban-controlled area. This spokesman said ransom demands, or an offer for a prisoner swap may be made, but warned that any attempts by foreigners to rescue him will lead to the soldier’s death.

Reuters reports that Mawlavi Sangin, a Taliban commander, issued warnings to the U.S. that continued “harassment” of the villagers in the area may also lead to the soldier’s death.

Reportedly, the U.S. Infantry soldier had just completed a shift and was off-duty when he walked off the U.S. base and left his body armor and weapon behind on June 30th. An anonymous U.S. military source said that communications by insurgents had been intercepted and it was believed that Taliban had the GI. Three Afghan nationals were abducted at the same time.

The Taliban commander, who spoke to Yousafzai [CBS correspondent] via satellite telephone from the region, said a group of militants cornered the American soldier and his Afghan counterparts near a U.S. military base and took them hostage.

But CBS News has learned that not long after the soldier disappeared, U.S. intelligence picked up radio chatter that he had been kidnapped. U.S. officials know he’s already been sold to another group of Afghans - but no direct contact has been made with the kidnappers.

This is believed to be the first abduction of a member of the U.S. Military in the almost-8-years since the War on Terror began. While leaflet-drops are ‘business as usual’ in these areas, those targeted have been the insurgents. This time villagers are warned. It’s a different ballgame. Read the entire article here.

Wake Up, America!

Hands off My Healthcare!

Patients First sent out an email containing information about the Health Care Destruction proposal. They urge us to sign their petition and send a link to our contacts so as to exert maximum political pressure to prevent the passage of this monstrosity. [The list below is quoted directly from the email.]

This latest bill includes:

  • A new government health insurance plan.
  • An individual mandate that every one of us must purchase government-defined health insurance or face new taxes and fines. This is a clear breaking of the president's pledge not to raise taxes on Americans earning less than $250,000 per year – at least 8 million Americans and their families will see their taxes go up.
  • An employer mandate that will make businesses either provide government-defined insurance coverage or pay a penalty tax.
  • Another income tax on households and many small businesses with an annual income of $350,000 to help pay for all this. This is another broken campaign promise. The president had pledged not to increase any American's taxes above the level of the 1990s – and that is just what would happen.
  • Did I mention that the government will decide what is an “adequate” health insurance package? A new bureaucracy – the Benefits Advisory Committee – and the Secretary of Health and Human Services will decide what coverage you have to pay for and what diseases and treatments will be covered.
  • Another bailout that will cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars – this time to unions to bail out their retiree health care plans.
  • More Comparative Effectiveness Research that could lead to government bureaucrats denying you health care treatment options.
This legislation is 1018 pages in length. Here is the first page.

H. R. ll
111TH CONGRESS
1ST SESSION

To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce
the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Mr. DINGELL (for himself, Mr. RANGEL, Mr. WAXMAN, Mr. GEORGE MILLER
of California, Mr. STARK, Mr. PALLONE, and Mr. ANDREWS) introduced
the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on
lllllllllllllll

A BILL
To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans

and reduce the growth in health care spending, and

for other purposes.

1 Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representa-

2 tives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

3 SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE; TABLE OF DIVISIONS, TITLES,

4 AND SUBTITLES.

5 (a) SHORT TITLE.--This Act may be cited as the

6 America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009''.

Notice the high level of abstraction. Exactly what do these terms mean, and how are they to be measured?

  • affordable
  • quality
  • choice
What the Hell is "affordable"? My gross income last year was $575.00 . Most health insurance plans would cost me more than that each month. If one of those 'crats would say that word in my presence, in the context of that legislation, I would offer to pull his head out of his ass and explain reality to him.

Quality? The difference between surgery and non-invasive treatment? The difference between chemo therapy that damn near kills you and a newer, more expensive but less toxic treatment? Accept the new flu vaccine or decline? Who makes those choices? Not some G'd bureaucrat, not for me anyway!!!

Choice? Let us choose an insurance plan? What insurance company can compete with the government's printing press? The legislation will make competing plans both impossible economically and illegal. There is a provision in the law which will forbid adding policy holders. As policy holders die or switch to the government plan, their pools will diminish, until they go out of business.

Reduce the growth in health care spending? Why do we elect Morons to govern this nation?! If the population grows, if morbidity rates increase, if the population ages, there will be more demand for medical services and for drugs. Demand pushes up prices. New technologies cost more initially at least. If you increase the numbers of "insured", and they go to the doctor for every perceived ache and illness, or seeking treatment for wrinkles, hair loss, breast enlargement, butt reduction or declining libido/virility, then costs are going to increase, as will waiting times unless you increase supply. Increase supply, and you'll need to pay the new medical professionals and their operating costs.

How are you going to increase supply when you enact laws and regulations that reduce the income and increase the expenses of doctors? Didn't Hillary want to limit admission to medical schools and control entry into specialty programs?

The bill is too large, too complex, and the time frame is too short. No Congressman is going to read it. They will depend on lies told by President Obama's shills. We are going to be screwed, and the damage will be irreversible. There is no way out of entitlement programs once they are established.

Sign the petition and urge others to sign it. Go to http://www.congress.org, enter your zip code, click the Federal link and tell your Representative and Senators to use all their health care proposals as anal suppositories. Watch how they vote, and vote against them if they vote for those bills.

Numbers USA Immigration Petition Campaign

Numbers USA is campaigning for four vital amendments which will help to save American jobs from illegal aliens. Following our surprising victories in the Senate, the LibTards are making an all out effort to kill these amendments. Roy Beck asks that you view this short video presentation which explains the amendments and the conflict swirling around them. Please watch this video and sign the petition immediately. The petition already has more than 45,000 signatures, but more are needed to convince congressional leaders of the overwhelming popular support behind these amendments.

You can help by signing the petition and urging your family, friends and associates to sign it.


See this blog post for the details of how the LibTards will try to kill this vital legislation.

The Sessions andt. gives E-Verify permanent authorization, removing it from the chopping block where it currently awaits extinction. It mandates that a company with a federal contract must screen all new hires through E-Verify. It also mandates that all people working on the gov't. contract must be verified.

The Demint amdt. requires completion of the 700-mile fence along the Mexican border by the end of 2010.

The Vitter amdt. activates a no-match notification system that informs employers of employees whose Social Security numbers do not match their records.

The Grassley amdt allows businesses to voluntarily run all existing employees through E-Verify.

Each of those vital amendments will be stripped from the bill in the reconciliation process unless we apply extreme pressure. The first step is to sign the petition. The second step is to exhort your friends to sign. The third step is to send a strongly worded email to your Representative & Senators exhorting them to support the amendments.

Similar provisions were placed in the House Stimulus bill last fall and secretly removed in the reconciliation committee. We must prevent that from happening again.

If you will join Numbers USA, you will discover how easy it is to send a fax to your Senators. Phoning them is the only better way to make them feel the heat.
