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.

Obamination: Iftar al-Taqiyya

I was disgusted but not surprised by what I heard on the news broadcast about President Obama's remarks at the White House Iftar.  I went in search of a transcript but did not find it at the White House web site. It turned up at a propaganda site for foreign consumption: America.gov.  My intention is to refute the treason lie by lie.  I will put  the lies in block quote format interspersed with my comments at full margin.  Use the link above if you want to read the whole screed uninterrupted.

And these events celebrate the role of faith in the lives of the American people. They remind us of the basic truth that we are all children of God, and we all draw strength and a sense of purpose from our beliefs.
    "...We all draw strength and a sense of purpose from our beliefs."  How beneficent, peaceful and spiritual.  Muslims draw a sense of purpose from their belief.  President Obama does not want us to examine that purpose.  Because I am an equal opportunity offender, I will reveal it to you as I found it in the Hilali & Khan Noble Qur'an.
The Muslim's purpose is to fight in Allah's cause; to make Islam dominate the entire world.  Their purpose is to conquer us.  Sweet, beneficent & spiritual indeed.

These events are also an affirmation of who we are as Americans.  Our Founders understood that the best way to honor the place of faith in the lives of our people was to protect their freedom to practice religion.  In the Virginia Act of Establishing Religion Freedom, Thomas Jefferson wrote that “all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion.”  The First Amendment of our Constitution established the freedom of religion as the law of the land.  And that right has been upheld ever since.
    Freedom of religion, a foundational virtue of America; how noble of President Obama to affirm it.  President Obama applies it to Islam, accepting the common fallacious assumption that Islam is a religion.  In fact, Islam is a "deen"--way of life which encompasses all aspects of human life, including faith.  Islam's faith component serves two purposes: it prevents us from perceiving the reality of Islam's mission and it motivates Muslims to fight, kill and be killed in world conquest.

    We see Muslims raising their butts to the moon and hear them howling.  How sweet, they are praying to their god,  Islam must be a religion, beneficent, anodyne; an equally valid pathway to the sublime.   But what are they really doing?  Each time they pray, they recite the first Surah, which includes these verses.
  • 1:6. Guide us to the Straight Way 

    1:7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians). 
They are cursing us. Five times each day they remind Allah of our going astray and earning his anger.  Nay more. They are declaring war upon us.  "Guide us to the straight way" Note the title of Ibn Kathir's Tafsir:  Guidance. Moe had a most interesting application for that word.
  • "May peace be on him who follows the guidance..."
  • "...Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:-- "Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master."... Sahih Bukhari 4.52.386
What happens to those who do not follow the guidance?  Moe sent an extortion letter to Persia, whose Emperor rejected it. Caliph Umar sent his army.

Indeed, over the course of our history, religion has flourished within our borders precisely because Americans have had the right to worship as they choose — including the right to believe in no religion at all.

Islam does not  honor freedom of religion.  Where Islam conquers, pagans & atheists must be slain or enslaved if not converted.  "People of the Book"  must be subjugated and make annual extortion payments for the privilege of living as less than second class citizens.  Conquered Christians living in dhimmitude are not permitted to build or repair churches, display crosses, ring bells or pray aloud in public.  Muslims who abandon Islam must be executed.

a nation where the ability of peoples of different faiths to coexist peacefully and with mutual respect for one another stands in stark contrast to the religious conflict that persists elsewhere around the globe.

"Mutual respect", another virtue lacking in Islam.  Our blood & property are not sacred to Muslims; we have no rights until we become Muslims.
  • 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."
    Here comes the setup; wait for the but clause.

Now, we must all recognize and respect the sensitivities surrounding the development of Lower Manhattan.  The 9/11 attacks were a deeply traumatic event for our country.  And the pain and the experience of suffering by those who lost loved ones is just unimaginable.  So I understand the emotions that this issue engenders.  And Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground.

Can you  imagine the feelings of the spouses and children whose loved ones went to work and never returned?  How did the survivors of victims of Flight 93 feel when they heard that cockpit voice recording?  I cursed Islam until my throat was too sore to continue, and I did not have any friends or family directly involved.

But let me be clear.  As a citizen, and as President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. 

How in Hell can they have a right to wage war against us ?  How in Hell can they have a right to enslave & rape our widows and orphans?  Jihad is part of Islam. It involves killing. Moe gave tacit approval to rape  captive women.

    What is their "religion"?  In this hadith, I will emphasize the critical parts for clarity. Read it slowly, then re-read it for full comprehension.
  • Sunan Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:
    Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.
What would they abandon?  What would they return to?  What is their "religion"?
Participation in jihad is a "religious obligation" classified as fard al-kifaya; binding upon all eligible male Muslims until a sufficient number have responded to the call.  It is not possible for Muslims to practice Islam  without engaging in or supporting  jihad until the entire world is conquered.
  • O9.1 "...If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it. In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.
    The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, "Jihad is a communal obligation," meaning upon the Muslims each year...." http://www.crusadersarmory.co.cc/RelianceO9-1.html
And that includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in Lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances. 

What do they do in that "place of worship" , five times each day?  And why in that location?  When Muslims conquer an area, they first tear down the local temple and replace it with a Mosque as a symbol of supremacy & triumph.  Why is Hagia Sophia a Mosque?  Why is there a Mosque on the Temple Mount?

This is America.  And our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakeable.  The principle that people of all faiths are welcome in this country and that they will not be treated differently by their government is essential to who we are.  The writ of the Founders must endure.

Can religious freedom be extended to those who do not grant it?  Can those be welcome here who assert a divine mandate to conquer us?   The Founders did not anticipate modern transportation & emigration.  They had no reason to expect Muslims to come here. Now they are here as an enemy fifth column, using our Constitutional rights as a weapon against us.

And let us also remember who we’re fighting against, and what we’re fighting for. 

No American President has  correctly identified the enemy who attacked us nine years ago and continues to p;lot attacks against us.  That enemy is Islam, the same enemy that sacked our merchant marine between 1791 & 1815.  Its name is Islam; no elected official will acknowledge that fact.  They are cowardly traitors.   We are fighting for life & liberty which we hold dear and Islam denigrates & denies to its victims.

.Our enemies respect no religious freedom. 

Lives must be mixed with truth to maximize their effects. There is the little bit of truth in Obama's slew of lies.

Al Qaeda’s cause is not Islam — it’s a gross distortion of Islam.

Al Qaeda is al-Ikhwan al-Muslimeen, as is HAMAS.
  • Article One:

    The Islamic Resistance Movement: The Movement's programme is Islam. From it, it draws its ideas, ways of thinking and understanding of the universe, life and man. It resorts to it for judgement in all its conduct, and it is inspired by it for guidance of its steps.
  • Article Eight:

    Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes. 

Its Islam, stupid! Why in Hell is it called the "Muslim Brotherhood"?  Al-Qaeda & HAMAS, etc.  are Islam, not separate, independent  entities.

These are not religious leaders — they’re terrorists who murder innocent men and women and children.

Was Moe a religious leader?  He founded Islam, was he a religious leader or not?  He said that killing children would profane a holy war because they are part of the spoils.  He also gave tacit approval to killing them in night raids. "They are from them." They are terrorists; what was Moe? "...I have been made victorious with terror..."

And the reason that we will win this fight is not simply the strength of our arms — it is the strength of our values.  The democracy that we uphold. The freedoms that we cherish.  The laws that we apply without regard to race, or religion, or wealth, or status.  Our capacity to show not merely tolerance, but respect towards those who are different from us –- and that way of life, that quintessentially American creed, stands in stark contrast to the nihilism of those who attacked us on that September morning, and who continue to plot against us today.

How in the eternal Hellfire can anyone respect or tolerate Islam?  Only by ignorance, or by being part of that damnable cult!   It is Islam, stupid; perpetual war, denial of rights and dignity; subjugation of minorities and women. It is Islam, stupid.  We were attacked by 19 Muslims, motivated by the promise of eternity in the celestial bordello.  Allah purchased them for that purpose, with that promise.  Fools, morons and the willfully blinded can not connect the data points.

  But time and again, the American people have demonstrated that we can work through these issues, and stay true to our core values, and emerge stronger for it.  So it must be — and will be — today.

Islam does not share our values, it contravenes them.  Islam is here to conquer us, not to assimilate. It is an enemy, not  part of our tradition.

And tonight, we are reminded that Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity.  And Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been a part of America.

Shi'ia, Sunni & Sufi all have something in common.  What is it?  Allah's imperatives.  What did Allah command them to do?  What did Moe say he was commanded to do?   How does that relate to 9/11?  What part of America was Islam when Thomas Jefferson was President?  Why did  he say "Millions for defense. But not one cent for tribute. "? Without the attacks of  the Barbary Pirates, we might not have a Marine Corps.  That is a substantial contribution, ain't it.

Muslim American clerics have spoken out against terror and extremism, reaffirming that Islam teaches that one must save human life, not take it. 

 Snake Excrement!!!  No cleric has condemned Allah's Gd'd imperatives, nor will they.  To condemn these is to sign your death warrant.
Show me, by God, one fatwa from one qualified  Muslim cleric, specifically & explicitly abjuring those ayat!!!`

No cleric has condemned Moe's Gd'd bragging about victory through terrorism.
Show me, by God, one fatwa from one qualified  Muslim cleric, specifically & explicitly abjuring those ahadith!!!  They have not and they will not because those ayat & ahadith are part of Islamic law.  Instead they blather about how Islam forbids killing innocents, relying on our definition of innocent, while remembering their own.  Islam holds that only Muslims are innocent, all others are rebels against Allah, deserving to be killed.  They love to quote 5:32 but never quote 5:33 and they will never tell you about Ibn Kathir's Tafsir of 5:33 which exposes the key definition: "waging war against Allah"  = disbelief.

And Muslim Americans serve with honor in our military.

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, S.O.A. & Sgt. Asan Akbar  for example?

For in the end, we remain “one nation, under God, indivisible.”  And we can only achieve “liberty and justice for all” if we live by that one rule at the heart of every great religion, including Islam — that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us.

Liberty & justice are not advanced by allowing their sworn enemies to occupy us as a fifth column and erect symbols of their triumph over our battlefields.  Islam attacks, it kills, it enslaves; it does not live and let live.  It has no golden rule.   President Obama is one of them, not one of us.

Reliance of the Traveller: Handbook of Shari'ah

This post is spurred by recent interest in tags related to Reliance of the Traveller.

    Islamic law is derived from Muhammad's recitation and example: Qur'an & Sunnah.  "Umdat as-Salik wa 'Uddat an-Nasik (Reliance of the Traveller and Tools of the Worshipper, also commonly known by its shorter title Reliance of the Traveller) is a classical manual of fiqh for the Shafi'i school of Islamic jurisprudence."  Here is the Wikipedia entry.

The book is about 1251 pages long. While you can search it at Muhaddith,  there are some limitations to the search. The text has been posted an an educational site, from which I took these quotations. This is a raw text file, and some of it is extremely RAW!  I suggest using the Ctrl F search function to find what you are seeking if you go here and delve into it: http://www.nku.edu/~kenneyr/Islam/Reliance.html .  That text version is not complete, it ends with Book V.

Islamic Bulletin has an extensive library which includes two versions of Reliance.

Maktabah has a Scribid version which is only 384 pages, far short of complete. If you want a hard copy, it is available from Amazon.

    Shari'ah means "path to the life giving waters",  it is a guide to obedience of Allah and emulation of Moe.  While much of it is arcane, such as the rules of  ritual purity and prayer,  it also  governs matters with more direct application to temporal affairs.

    The laws concerning marriage, divorce, crime & punishments, and jihad are imposed upon non-Muslims where Allah's writ runs.  Islamic law forbids charging or receiving interest.  Shari'ah compliant commerce involves the proscription of all interest and all traffic with Israel.  It also involves the payment of 2.5%  Zakat on financial transactions  as well as on increase in wealth.  What most westerners don't know is that 1/8  of Zakat collections must be paid to the terrorists to finance their war against us.  It is illegal to give Zakat to Kuffar.

H8.7: The Eight Categories of Recipients
It is obligatory to distribute one's zakat among eight categories of recipients (O: meaning that zakat goes to none besides them), one-eighth of the zakat to each category. (n: In the Hanafi school, it is valid for the giver to distribute his zakat to all of the categories, some of them, or to confine himself to just one of them (al-Lubab fi sharh al-Kitab(y88), 1.155). )
H8.17: Those Fighting for Allah
The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster (O: but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration).  They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses (O: for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged. Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people's families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it).

It is not permissible to give zakat to a non-Muslim, or to someone whom one is obliged to support (def: m12.1), such as a wife or family member.

    Some of the most important provisions have been documented with screen shots from the search engine at Muhaddith.

    A series of blog posts about Shari'ah has been compiled into a Windows Help File (chm). Shari'ah.chm (100K Zipped) Compiled from a series of articles about Shari'ah, how it can affect you and what you can do to stop it.

Moderate's Immoderate Rejection of Park 51

Bare Naked Islam, who makes a habit of posting the cream first, has struck again with a Fox News video  of an interview with Raheel Raza in which she categorically denounces the Ground Zero Mosque project. A little background: Raheel is  board member of the Muslim Canadian Congress and the author of Your Jihad, not My Jihad.


"Why do you oppose building that Mosque downtown?"

"Well, I oppose the idea along with other members of the Muslim Canadian Congress because it is confrontational, it is in bad faith and  doesn't really set up any kind of  dialog or discussion on tolerance. "

"Well the pro-Mosque forces including the Mayor of New York City say, number one, to deny the Mosque would be a slap in the face to freedom of religion and number two, the reason that the community center Mosque is wanted  there by the Muslims involved is to show respect, respect for the victims of 9/11; you're not buying that? "

"Well, no, as a Muslim I'm not buying that at all how does building a Mosque in the very place where Muslims murdered so many other Americans create any kind of respect?  What I'm hearing from people, especially those who are family of the victims is that this is very hurtful and very painful,  and as a Muslim  I read in my holy book, the Qur'an that we should be very sensitive towards people of other faiths, especially when we are living in lands that are not Muslim lands and these are our neighbors and our colleagues and the  people we care about.    We don't show our caring for them by being intolerant.

Building a Mosque or a place of worship in the particular spot across the street from ground zero is a slap in the face of all Americans.  I mean New Yorkers have  [inaudible] with Spain and and the people who are behind this project are themselves Americans and New Yorkers--I can't begin to imagine how they would even conceive  an idea that building a Mosque there which is an exclusive place of prayer for Muslims would in any way build tolerance and respect.

     Mayor  Bloomberg and other bleeding heart white liberals like him don't understand the battle that we moderate Muslims are faced with in terms of confronting radical Islam and Islamization and political Islam in North America, which has only grown since 9/11  because of political correctness and people because of their political vested agenda,not speaking out about issues like this. "

"What a great answer.  Ms. Raza, that was about as articulate  a indictment of this whole crazy thing that I've  heard. Some say..."

But one doesn't hold back when ...

"Listen, I'm complementing you because that was very well stated.  Some people say that this Imam Rauf  wanted to gloat--wanted to put a Mosque there to send a signal to radical Muslims that this was a victory-- are you  buying that?"

Well, it could be, Imam Feisal Rauf  has previously had a reputation for being a very pluralistic, visionary man, I will say that for him, so it came as a double surprise when I heard that he and his wife were the sort of brains behind this idea.  But you know a hundred million dollars can   help people sell their souls so who knows what goes in the minds of people?  

    And the big question that we have also is where is this funding coming from?  Was this a fund raising that took place in America? ...

"No, they don't have the money right now,  we're actually watching... Ir's not going to get done, I have said this from the beginning of the story, that  I don't think there is a construction crew in New York City, certainly not a Union crew that is gonna work on this project; I don't think its gonna happen, but I respect your coming on, Ms. Raza, I know how difficult it is and there are some in your community who will condemn you for doing it but  you really nailed it, this is about sensitivity; its about Muslims obeying the Qur'an and going out of their way to be hospitable  to people who may feel pain in a certain measure.  Thanks, Ms. Raza, we appreciate it very much."

    Why didn't OReilly say " wham bam, thank you ma'am"?   he must have been thinking that.  Her first answer pretty well nailed it: "it is confrontational, it is in bad faith and  doesn't really set up any kind of  dialog or discussion on tolerance".  She basically  confirmed what Pamela Geller and others  have said about the proposed Mosque, that it represents an insensitive imposition of a symbol of triumphal conquest.  She contradicted the assertions of the  proponents.

    The next answer was no less forthcoming: "I can't begin to imagine how they would even conceive  an idea that building a Mosque there which is an exclusive place of prayer for Muslims would in any way build tolerance and respect."    That is an excellent statement of the obvious.

Are We Wising up to Islam?

Barenaked Islam    quoted  a New York Times article: Across Nation, Mosque Projects Meet Opposition,  which first lists several locations where opposition  to Mosque construction has arisen and then brings out the key revelation.

"In all of the recent conflicts, opponents have said their problem is Islam itself. They quote passages from the Koran and argue that even the most Americanized Muslim secretly wants to replace the Constitution with Islamic Shariah law."

Either the opponents have begun to study the enemy's canon or they have been emboldened to  use to a new level of direct counter attack on the ideological plane. The next paragraph trots out the implicit false premise: "Islam is a religion, equal  to Christianity and must be tolerated as such as a matter of First Amendment right."

"These local skirmishes make clear that there is now widespread debate about whether the best way to uphold America’s democratic values is to allow Muslims the same religious freedom enjoyed by other Americans, or to pull away the welcome mat from a faith seen as a singular threat." [Emphasis added for clarity.]

Many left wingers are slick in their use of loaded expressions.  "America's democratic values" is heavily laden with all things bright and beautiful.  The use of that expression lays the foundation for accusing Islam's opponents of racism, bigotry & xenophobia.    They are off to a fast start, ahead of the starter's pistol, mis-framing the debate.  Only religions are protected by the First Amendment's free exercise clause.  They have evaded\ the crucial question: "Is Islam a religion worthy of First Amendment protection?".  

    It has a scripture, it has theology, it has cosmology, it prays, it sways, it practices charity; it must be a religion.  Yeah, right.  Islam is a deen: way of life which dictates all aspects of human life. One critical aspect of that way of life makes it incompatible with our Constitution and intolerable in our society.  Open your eyes and prepare to learn; I am about to show you something that nobody else will expose you to.  This oral tradition exposes the reality of the Islamic deen.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:
Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

Moe presented jihad and agriculture as alternatives, the former being acceptable to Allah and the latter carrying a curse.   Allah will curse the Muslims if they abandon jihad in exchange for agriculture.  Jihad Akbar is striving against your ego and temptations.  Is Jihad Akbar an alternative to farming for a living?  Jihad asghar is defined in Islamic law as "to war against non-Muslims".  Is that an alternative to farming as a way of making a living?   For the answer, examine this hadith, which Khan bowdlerized but Aisha Bewley included in her translation of Sahih Bukhari.

How did Moe make his living?  By his spear.  Was it by hunting wild game?  Is the life style of a hunter/gatherer consistent with making commands; abasing and humiliating anyone who disobeys? What kind of command is involved in that saying? Here is one sample.

... I do not intend to wage war against you till you receive my written reason for it. It is better for you, either to accept Islam or agree to pay Jiziya and consent to remain obedient to Allah, His prophet and his messengers. My messengers deserve honour. Treat them with respect. Whatever pleases my messengers, will also please me....[LETTER TO THE CHIEFS OF AQABA]

Moe sent a letter to Christians, giving them the choice of conversion to Islam, dhimmitude & Jizya or war.  He commanded people to submit to Islam and attacked them if they refused.   What is consistent with issuing commands and punishing the disobedient?  Pillage & plunder.   Do you see the pattern yet?

    For those who can not perceive the pattern, I have more clues from the Qur'an: Surah al-Anfal:; "Spoils of War".  To whom do the spoils belong? How are they allocated?  What was Moe's motivation?

8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad ) about the spoils of war. Say: "The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger." So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), if you are believers.

8:41. And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad ) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) - And Allâh is Able to do all things.

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. [Emphasis added for clarity.]

Moe gets the spoils; the  best 20% off the top. Moe's motivation was the spoils & ransom for captives.  We  have it on Allah's authority.   But spoilation was taboo among Arabs, how did Moe get away with it?  Allah gave him special dispensation.  Nay more! Allah gave Moe the keys to the treasures of the world.  How did Allah make Moe wealthy?  

Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 ...3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
 Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and 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." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 37, Number 495:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Whenever a dead man in debt was brought to Allah's Apostle he would ask, "Has he left anything to repay his debt?" If he was informed that he had left something to repay his debts, he would offer his funeral prayer, otherwise he would tell the Muslims to offer their friend's funeral prayer. When Allah made the Prophet wealthy through conquests, he said, "I am more rightful than other believers to be the guardian of the believers, so if a Muslim dies while in debt, I am responsible for the repayment of his debt, and whoever leaves wealth (after his death) it will belong to his heirs. "
Emphasis added for clarity.]

    Islam's mission is mercenary, neither spiritual nor eleemosynary. This fact alone is sufficient to disqualify Islam from First Amendment protection.  There is another fact, equally potent as a disqualifier:  Islam is permanent war.  Moe created Islam for his personal emolument & empowerment, which were dependent on constant warfare. He began with razia on camel caravans,  graduated to ghazwat against local Jewish settlements, and went on to conquer Mecca and threaten nearby kingdoms and empires. 

    Since Moe was  the self-appointed spokesman for Allah, he had Allah issue commandments.  Two of them are crucial to the question before us.

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.

Those are commands, imperatives, not suggestions; not metaphors, not allegories.  They have neither geographic nor chronological limits; they are outcome oriented, of global scope.  I gave you links to four tafsirs and Islamic law for a reason: so that you can verify what I have written.  Those tafsirs  deny the mercenary motivation clearly exposed by Allah's own testimony in 8:67: "You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives)". None of them denies the fard al-kifaya of annual ghazwat.  None of them asserts limits of time or geography.  None of them asserts an expiration date.

    Besides bing fard al-kifaya, jihad is the essence of the relationship between Allah and the believers; he purchased them as slaves so that "...they kill (others) and are killed.".

        What makes  jihad  holy?  Is it fighting to establish the religion? [Read the footnote to 2:190.] No!  Jihad is only holy if nobody embezzles the spoils!

Sahih Muslim 19.4294: "...Make a holy war, do not embezzle the spoils; do not break your pledge; and do not mutilate (the dead) bodies; do not kill the children...."

Jihad would be profaned by embezzling the spoils, which belong to Moe, fleeing from battle and mutilation  which was another  taboo.  Killing women and children  is prohibited because they were part of the booty, dead bodies had no value on the slave market. If you retain any doubt about this disgusting fact, I have some references for you: 33:26-27, Ibn Kathir and  Ibn Taymiyyah {"property for Muslims"}.

    What is the importance of Jihad?

"Abdullah Humaid (Shaykh). "... Besides these acts of worship, a Muslim is directed to abstain from evil deeds and to perform good deeds, so that he may achieve success in the Hereafter, as well as, in the life of this world. But, as regards the reward and blessing, there is one deed which is very great in comparison to all the acts of worship and all the good deeds-and that is Jihad!"

    By what stretch of the imagination is a mercenary and martial institution which wages war against us to be greeted with a welcome mat and given the protection which the First  Amendment extends to legitimate religions?  Given the fact that offensive jihad is a required  part of the practice of Islam, how can there be a right to practice Islam here?

    The Times tells us that there is a "growing cottage industry of authors and bloggers"  who testify against Islam and "interfaith groups led by Protestant ministers, Catholic priests, rabbis and clergy members of other faiths" who defend Mosques.  They don't tell us about the fact that only one side has relevant, verifiable evidence to support its case.  Throughout this post you will find links to source documents.  They are bold, blue underlined text. When clicked, they open  a relevant document in a new window.

    At the end of the article, the times quotes a spokeswoman for one Mosque.

"Camie Ayash, a spokeswoman for the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, lamented that people were listening to what she called “total disinformation” on Islam. ... “A lot of Muslims came to the U.S. because they respect the Constitution,” she said. “There’s no conflict with the U.S. Constitution in Shariah law. If there were, Muslims wouldn’t be living here.”

Does Shari'ah conflict with our Constitution and laws or not?  Reliance of the Traveller is a 1251 page book, translated from Umdat as Salik.  It is acknowledged by the Sheikhs at Al-Azhar University to be an authentic handbook of Islamic law.  We  have freedom of religion. American citizens can choose their own religion, and switch at will.  Muslims governed by Shari'ah can not. A Muslim who  apostatizes must be executed.

O8.1  When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.
O8.2  In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.  http://www.crusadersarmory.co.cc/RelianceO8-2.html

Does that Islamic law conflict with our organic law or does it not?

    Islamic law concerning marriage and divorce can be somewhat shocking to the western mind.

M3.13: Guardians Who May Marry a Virgin to a Man Without Her Consent

Guardians are of two types, those who may compel their female charges to marry someone, and those who may not.

-1- The only guardians who may compel their charge to marry are a virgin bride's father or father's father, compel meaning to marry her to a suitable match (def: m4) without her consent.

-2- Those who may not compel her are not entitled to marry her to someone unless she accepts and gives her permission.

Whenever the bride is a virgin, the father or father's father may marry her to someone without her permission, though it is recommended to ask her permission if she has reached puberty. A virgin's silence is considered as permission.

As for the nonvirgin of sound mind, no one may marry her to another after she has reached puberty without her express permission, no matter whether the guardian is the father, father's father, or someone else.

The father of a prepubescent girl can marry her off without her consent.  Is that or is  that not in conflict with our laws?   What if she refuses

O1.2 The following are not subject to retaliation:
-4- a father or mother (or their fathers of mothers) fir killing their offspring, or offspring's offspring;

-5- nor is retaliation permissible to a descendant for (A: his ancestor's) killing someone whose death would otherwise entitle the descendant to retaliate, such as when his father kills his mother.

Honoricide, anyone?  But, of course, there is no conflict between Shari'ah and our Constitution.

    Now, back to the topic of divorce.

 Chapter N3.0: The Words that Effect a Divorce
N3.2 Using plain words to effect a divorce means expressly pronouncing the word divorce (O: or words

derived from it).  When the husband says' "I divorce you,'' or "You are divorced,'' the wife is divorced

whether he has made the intention or not.

(A: Here and in the rulings below, expressions such as "The wife is divorced,'' or "The divorce is effected,'' mean just one of the three times (def: n9.0(N:) ) necessary to finalize it, unless the husband thereby intends a two-or threefold divorce (dis: n3.5) or repeats the words three times.)   

    Is the Islamic law of divorce consistent with ours, or does it conflict?

   Lets touch upon a subject which, though not directly  involved in the federal  organic law,  does involve the Constitutions of the several states: duties of the governor.

O25.9  Authority in view of merit is that which is freely invested by the caliph through his own choice, and entails delegating a given limitary function and the use of judgement within a range of familiar alternatives. This investiture consists of the caliph appointing an individual to independently govern a city or region with authority over all its inhabitants and discretion in familiar affairs for all matters of government, including seven functions:

-1- raising and deploying armies on the frontiers and fixing their salaries, if the caliph has not already done so;

-2- reviewing laws and appointing judges and magistrates;

-3- collecting the annual rate (khiraj) from those allowed to remain on land taken b Islamic conquests, gathering zakat from those obliged to pay, appointing workers to handle it, and distributing it to eligible recipients;

-4- protecting the religion and the sacrosanct, preserving the religion from alteration and substitution;

-5- enforcing the prescribed legal measures connected with the rights of Allah and men;

-6- leading Muslims at group and Friday prayers, whether personally or by representative;

-7- facilitating travel to the hajj for both pilgrims from the regian itself and those passing through from elsewhere, that they may proceed to the pilgrimage with all necessary help,

-8- and if the area has a border adjacent to enemy lands, an eighth duty arises, namely to undertake jihad against enemies, dividing the spoils of battle among combatants, and setting aside fifth (def: o10.3) for deserving recipients.

Revisit the last item in that list. The local governor has a duty to undertake jihad against neighboring enemies and dividing the spoils.  Does that or does that not conflict with our federal and state Constitutions?  We have been assured that there is no conflict between Shari'ah and our Constitution.   What is the truth of the matter?  Does our Constitution guarantee freedom of religion?  How about Shari'ah?

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) ). [Emphasis and link added for clarity.]
The caliph makes war upon Jews & Christians until they become Muslim or pay extortion, in obedience to 9:29.  But, we are assured that this does not conflict with our Constitution.  I doubt that many Muslims have read it.  Of course there is a perfect right to build Mosques & Madrassahs wherein to preach the obligation (fard al-kifaya) of jihad. And its perfectly alright to  send 1\8 of the charity collected to those waging war against us.

H8.7: The Eight Categories of Recipients

It is obligatory to distribute one's zakat among eight categories of recipients (O: meaning that zakat goes to none besides them), one-eighth of the zakat to each category. (n: In the Hanafi school, it is valid for the giver to distribute his zakat to all of the categories, some of them, or to confine himself to just one of them (al-Lubab fi sharh al-Kitab(y88), 1.155). ) ...

H8.17: Those Fighting for Allah

The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster (O: but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration).  They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses (O: for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged. Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people's families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it).

Didn't President Obama have something to say about Zakat at Cairo?  "That's why I am committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill Zakat."  Who did the Holy Land Foundation send $13. million to?  Why was that a big deal, requiring two trials in federal court?

We will conquer you if you do not change your laws

Google brought me news of "When Islam Acts Like a Conquering Army", at AINA.  The article turned out to be critical of Mayor Bloomberg's treacherous policy as a surrender to Islam but it was written by a Muslim of Syrian heritage: Farid Ghadry. A visit to Wikipedia  turned up some information. Ghadry is the founder of a Syrian reform party.  He appears to be a study in contradiction: democratic Muslim.  

    I found Ghadry's blog and checked to see if  there was more, but found that AINA had published the entire article. I want to share the conclusion with you.

... If we let Saudi Arabia fund and build the Mosque in New York as a token of their triumphalism over the US for 9/11, we are in fact not applying the Freedom of Religion laws but rather, we are giving my religion the chance to conquer New York by planting its flag of victory.

Farid Ghadry either knows who is behind the Ground Zero Mosque or is making the obvious assumption.  Note the caustic language coming from a Muslim: "token of their triumphalism"... "planting its flag of victory".  It is clear that he understands what is happening and that he does not approve.

Mayor Bloomberg is focused on one set of laws when he should be investigating every religious edict or Fatwa of Islam that emanated from our scholars the last 25 years. But what if religion acts like a conquering army? How could we reconcile this fact with our laws? Being an American, laws will always prevail, but being a Muslim also, I have a warning: We will conquer you if you do not change your laws accordingly.
The US better reconcile between Freedom of Religion and Islam as a conquering army soon. The two cannot co-exist for long.

    Mayor Bloomberg focuses on the First Amendment, incorrectly applying the definition of religion, which does not apply to Islam.  The idea that a Mayor could or would keep track of the entire  contemporary  output of the Ulema is beyond the pale. Most Governors and even most Presidents won't even keep abreast of the established fiqh of jihad.

    Islam does not "act like a conquering army",  it is a complex, multi-faceted institution, whose most important facet is a conquering army.  Since Islam is at war against us, it can not be treated as a religion under the umbrella of the First Amendment's free exercise clause.  It can not have a right to wage war against us from our own territory and it can't have a right to erect a symbol of triumph to serve as an arsenal, recruitment & training center two blocks from the scene of its most successful attack.  

    We have been warned, by a Muslim, that Islam will conquer us if we do not change our laws to exclude it from First Amendment protection.  We have a Muslim using expressions  that do not pass the lips of the most articulate  expert "Islamophobes".  If Islam is a conquering army, it can not be considered a religion for First Amendment purposes.  The process is one of decision making and Constitutional  amendment, not reconciliation.

    The Cordoba House project is one skirmish on the psychological battle plane.  If we win it, Islamic jihad suffers a  psychological loss, whose effect will probably be minor and temporary.  If we lose this skirmish, Islamic jihad will achieve a great victory which will spur its cause by aiding recruitment, financing and morale.  The effects will be intense in the short term and project into the long term.  We will suffer a psychological defeat affecting our will and resolve to continue resistance to Islam's onslaught.

    Islam takes a long view. Like Wylie Coyote, it is persistent, always licking its wounds, regrouping, rearming and preparing new tactics for the next attack. It did not conquer Constantinople on the first try, but it persisted.   We beat the crap out of Germany twice, each time thinking that the victory was permanent. It was not the first time   We can not apply that model to Islam.  We defeated Islam in 1805 & 18:15.   Islam can not be permanently defeated, it must be rendered extinct.

    In the short term, we must stop the Ground Zero Mosque.  Sign this petition and the others which are circulating on the web.    If possible, attend the protest September 11.  In the near term, we must amend the Constitution to acknowledge the fact that Islam is perpetual war, not a religion.   Sign the Outlaw Islam! petition.  Exhort your friends, family & associates to sign those petitions.
