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.

Dr. Tawfik Hamid's Radical Islam Test

A wall post at the Stop the Islamization of America page attracted my attention because it purported to be a statement by Dr. Tawfik Hamid calling on Muslims to  renounce several key Islamic doctrines as radical and unacceptable in modern times.   The content of that wall post aroused my skepticism  so I did a search, which turned up this ABCs Test of Radical Islam.


The time has come to define Radical Islam. Please ask your local mosque, Islamic Shool, and Islamic organization to clearly, unambiguously and publically denounce the following concepts:
Apostates killing
Beating women and stoning women to death for adultery
Calling Jews pigs and monkeys.
Declaring war on Non Muslims to spread Islam after offering Non Muslims three options – subjugate to Islam, pay Jizia (a humiliating tax), or be killed.
Enslavement of Other Human Beings.
Fighting and killing Jews before the “End of Days”.
Gay killing.
A true moderate person or organization must be able to immediately denounce the above concepts and stand publicly and unambiguously against them.
The Muslim world must not expect the world to call Islam peaceful as long as they teach and promote the above teaching.
A clear stand is needed from leading Islamic Scholars all over the world against the above ABCs.

That did not exactly match what was posted  on the wall, so I checked a link in the left sidebar, which only duplicated the original content.  Further searching turned up text exactly matching the wall post. I found this at Stop Radical Islam.

Is Your Local Mosque 'Moderate' or 'Radical'? 
Ask the Imams of Mosques, the Muslim leaders, and the Islamic organizations in the US and worldwide to sign this declaration (See below)  
by Tawfik Hamid 
www.tawfikhamid.com  
After the problem of Ground Zero Mosque has escalated it becomes an urgent necessity to distinguish 'Moderate' from 'Radical' Islam. Without making such a distinction the US and the rest of the world will remain divided regarding this issue. Debates about the issue can be endless unless we define the words 'radical' and 'moderate'.
Mosque leaders, Islamic scholars, and organizations who want to be considered Moderates MUST clearly and unambiguously declare the following declaration in their media outlets and on their websites.
I suggest that you send this declaration to Mosque leaders and the Islamic organizations inside the US and worldwide to see if they are ready to accept such a declaration or not.
Please feel free to circulate this newsletter so that we can start a process that allows us to distinguish radical from moderate Islam.
Declaration of Beliefs of Muslim Moderates -
 I (We) are Muslims who want contemporary understandings of Islam to replace currently predominant harsh and radical (Salafi/Wahabbi) interpretations of our religion. We therefore declare that:
 1-    Redda Law, the Sharia Law that allows the killing of Muslims who convert to other faiths, must be banned in Islamic teachings and in Sharia legal doctrine.  Islamic countries that practice Sharia must stop the practice of this law and must admit that Freedom of belief and the right to convert to other faith or believe is a basic right that must be given to all Muslims.
 2-    Current mainstream Sharia doctrines justify the use of violence against women.  They encourage men to beat their wives to discipline them.  They allow women accused of adultery to be stoned to death.  These doctrines are barbarically inhumane, non-egalitarian, and teach Muslim children to be violent.  These teachings must be ended by reinterpreting the Islamic text that justifies such violence.
 3-    Traditional Sharia doctrines teach Muslims that they must engage in war so that Islam will dominate the world.  When Islam becomes dominant, Non-Muslims are offered three options: to convert to Islam, to pay Jizzia (a humiliating tax), or to be killed.  These doctrines run contrary to modern respect for diversity and for personal freedom of speech and belief.  This understanding of Jihad that seeks domination of Islam over other peoples must no longer be regarded as an Islamic value and its teaching as a duty for Muslims must end.
The early Islamic wars known as "Futohaat Islameia" were fought to implement this doctrine of Jihad. These wars therefore should now be regarded as un-Islamic and un-justifiable.  
4-   Jews are individuals who deserve the same respect accorded to all individuals.  They should not be called "pigs and monkeys."  The Islamic teaching that Muslims must fight and kill all Jews before the end of days is totally incorrect and unacceptable as it does not exist in the Quran.  All teachings that encourage anti-Semitic attitudes, violence or disrespect toward Jews must be declared un-Islamic.
5-    Slavery is a crime against humanity. All Sharia laws that justify slavery in our modern times must not be taught any more. Muslim scholars must have a clear and loud voice against slavery.
6-    Islamic Sharia laws currently permit the killing homosexuals.  These laws also are advocating a crime against our fellow human beings.  They must be declared un-Islamic and their implementation must be considered criminal.
Signed,
Dr. Tawfik Hamid
The above violent teachings, which currently are taught in mainstream Islamic books in America, are implemented in countries that allow governance according to Sharia Law. Future Muslim generations must be protected from these destructive doctrines, interpretations and customs.

These violent Sharia doctrines must be replaced with clear and unconditional explanations of why they no longer are valid.

Anything short of a fully clear and unequivocal stand against these doctrines indicates passive approval. Therefore, all Islamic leaders who genuinely consider themselves to be Muslim moderates must post these principles in English and in Arabic in full public view on their websites and declare them in their media outlets.

Failure to publically post and support these principles should be interpreted as clear evidence that a leader's mosque or Islamic organization must be considered radical.

    I found the same text at Act! For America. I guess I should be more regular in reading my email; I see that some of my friends beat me to this.

    I want to focus first on one key clause from the comment: "unconditional explanations of why they no longer are valid".  Were those doctrines ever valid?  Why were they valid then, and what terminated their validity?  Has Allah changed his will or his word since 632?

  1. 4:88. Then what is the matter with you that you are divided into two parties about the hypocrites? Allâh has cast them back (to disbelief) because of what they have earned. Do you want to guide him whom Allâh has made to go astray? And he whom Allâh has made to go astray, you will never find for him any way (of guidance).

    4:89. They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliyâ' (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allâh (to Muhammad ). But if they turn back (from Islâm), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliyâ' (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them.

    Was it invalid when Allah said it? If  so, why is it no longer valid?  If not, why did he say it?

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57:

    Narrated 'Ikrima:

    Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"

    Was that valid when Moe said it?  If so, why was it valid then but not now?  Here is the Islamic law which is founded on those revelations and sayings.

    08.1 When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

    08.2 In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representative) 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.

    Was that provision of Shari'ah valid when it was codified?  Why is it invalid now? 
  2. 4:34. Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allâh has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allâh and to their husbands), and guard in the husband's absence what Allâh orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband's property, etc.). As to those women on whose part you see ill­conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allâh is Ever Most High, Most Great.

    "...I (the narrator Laqit) then said: Messenger of Allah, I have a wife who has something (wrong) in her tongue, i.e. she is insolent. He said: Then divorce her. I said: Messenger of Allah, she had company with me and I have children from her. He said: Then ask her (to obey you). If there is something good in her, she will do so (obey); and do not beat your wife as you beat your slave-girl. " Sunan Abu Dawud 1.0142

    24:2. The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allâh, if you believe in Allâh and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allâh's Law).

    Were those rulings valid when they were issued? If so, why are they now invalid? 
  3. 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.

    9:33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it).

    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."

    o9.1 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.

    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
    o9.9    The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim

    Were those imperatives valid when issued?  Were the confirmation and codification valid?  If so, why are they no longer valid? 
  4. 5:60. Say (O Muhammad  to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allâh: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allâh and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Tâghût (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell­fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)."

    7:167. And (remember) when your Lord declared that He would certainly keep on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. Verily, your Lord is Quick in Retribution (for the disobedient, wicked) and certainly He is Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful (for the obedient and those who beg Allâh's Forgiveness).

    ...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....Ibn Kathir's Tafsir

    Sahih Muslim  Book 041, Number 6985:
    Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

    Was 5:60 valid when it was revealed?  Was the genocidal prophecy valid when it was revealed?  If so, whey are they invalidated?  
  5. 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

    o9.13 When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman's previous marriage is immediately
    annulled.

    Were that exemplar & ruling valid when they were issued?  If so, what has happened to invalidate them? 
  6. 27:55. "Do you approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, but you are a people who behave senselessly."
    27:58. And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned.

    Sunan Abu Dawud Book 38, Number 4447:
    Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:
    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If you find anyone doing as Lot's people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.

    o12.2  If the offender is someone with the capacity to remain chaste, then he or she is stoned to death...
    Were those rulings valid when issued? If so, what has robbed them of their validity?
    A decent respect for human rights & dignity requires a rational person to reject those Islamic laws entirely.  It is not possible that they could ever possess any validity.  But Allah's word  declares that it is perfected. Alllah's word also says that it can not be changed and that it must be entirely accepted.

    By what  scripture or tradition will the moderates justify abjuring the above listed  ayat, ahadith & Shari'ah?   And how shall they evade this trap?
Reliance of the Traveller, o8.7 lists 20 acts which entail apostasy.  The seventh item in that list is:  "(7) to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does not belong to it;".  One of the rules they want to declare invalid subjects them to the death penalty as apostates!  They deny no less than 10  ayat.

    I admit that normative Islam is actually "radical"  as  it was when Moe preached and practiced it.   If any Imam  makes a public endorsement of Dr. Hamid's statement, I will be as surprised as I would be if they signed the Ground Zero Declaration.  If any Muslim who reads this presents the test and statement to his Imam and governing board, I hope that he will come back and report the results in a comment.

Flight 93 on 9/11: Ride to Stop the Crescent Mosque

Alec Rawls  sent out another blogburst on the Flight 93 memorial issue. The Crescent of Embrace is, effectively, the first 9/11 Victory Mosque, Park 51 is the second.  

    A group of motorcyclists will be riding to Somerset to protest. Alec is urging others within riding distance to join them on the ninth anniversary of the accursed abomination.  This will be your best opportunity to demonstrate opposition to the Victory Mosque with extensive media coverage.

    The blogburst includes four embedded videos. In some venues, they may not work, so I have included links to YouTube.

Flight 93 on 9/11: Ride to Stop the Crescent Mosque

Anyone live within driving distance of Somerset Pennsylvania? It's a beautiful place to visit and a group of motorcyclists from Indianapolis is already going. Tom Burnett Senior and Alec Rawls are buying full page color ads in the Somerset Daily American for both Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th, so anyone who makes the trip will have a ready made protest sign waiting for them. Just buy a newspaper, tape the ad to a piece of cardboard, and let the massed national media know what side you are on. That's right. With Barbara Bush and Michelle Obama both attending, it's going to be a media circus, and a rare opportunity to force coverage of our issue. Just self-organize. Ad-holders will show a core of united opposition (and the media might even be forced to read our brief expose). A PDF of the ad will be posted in another blogburst next week for anyone who wants to make signs ahead of time. There is also a set of small posters that were put together for a previous talk by Mr. Burnett. Just print with tiling to make the finished product as large or small as you want:

Board 1: The giant crescent Board 2: It points to Mecca Board 3: The gigantic Islamic sundial Board 4: The 44 glass blocks
Petition to stop the Flight 93 memorial passes 10,000 signatures Including a spate of dozen or so by 9/11 family members that feature some very strong comments. (See pages 198 and 199.) Blogburst logo, petitionIt Points to Mecca video nearing 20,000 hits Thanks to big fat repostings by Creeping Sharia and Atlas Shrugs. Thank You!

Obamination: Continuing Defeat in Iraq

Fox News provided a transcript of  President Obama's remarks, click the link to read  the lies in context.  I will quote and refute the worst of the lies.


"I'd like to talk to you about the end of our combat mission in Iraq, the ongoing security challenges we face, and the need to rebuild our nation here at home."

end of our combat mission in Iraq

    We still have troops on the ground in theater, and they will be targeted by suicide bombers and IEDs. The casualties; waste of life and limb have moved into a new phase, they have not ended.  

ongoing security challenges

    Islamic terrorism, both home grown and international remains a serious threat to our security.  Iraq and Afghanistan remain members in good standing of the set of terrorist sponsoring states.  Iran continues on  the fast track to nuclear ascension, while China rapidly expands its military might.  North Korea continues to threaten renewed conflict.

rebuild our nation here at home

    That kind of malignant malarkey has no place in a message about national security.  President Obama is mixing domestic demagoguery with national security demagoguery.  We do not need to rebuild, we need to reverse the government policies & actions that have stifled  economic activity.

"But this milestone should serve as a reminder to all Americans that the future is ours to shape if we move forward with confidence and commitment."

confidence and commitment

    Insufficient confidence & commitment is what got us into this mess.  The war is lost precisely because Shrub lacked the confidence & commitment to accurately identify and engage the enemy.  He tried to do an invasion on the cheap, and it proved costly.

"A war to disarm a state became a fight against an insurgency. Terrorism and sectarian warfare threatened to tear Iraq apart."

war to disarm a state

    LibTards continue to  ignore the distinction between dynamic and static conditions.  If we disarm a state, it will eventually rearm  if we do not continually occupy and dominate it.  If we destroy a state, and completely eliminate it, it will not return to threaten us again.  LibTards just can't figure that out.

Terrorism and sectarian warfare

    Both were entirely predictable and were predicted.  Both could have been at least partially suppressed had we employed sufficient force from the outset.  Shrub, fearing both domestic and international criticism, tried to do it on the cheap and failed miserably.  Enemy assets fell into the hands of those most willing to use them against us because we failed to secure them in a timely manner.

"Because of our troops and civilians -and because of the resilience of the Iraqi people - Iraq has the opportunity to embrace a new destiny, even though many challenges remain."

opportunity to embrace a new destiny

    When you can't identify the enemy, you can't win the war.  Islam is the enemy.  The majority of Iraq's population  remains  Muslim. Iraq's new constitution makes Shari'ah the primary source of its law.  Iraq remains in the same rut, only the regime has changed.

"This completes a transition to Iraqi responsibility for their own security."

Iraqi responsibility

    That idiocy, a leftover from Shrub, would be comedic if it were not so tragic.  By some legerdemain of arrogance & conceit, Shrub set out to train the enemy to prevent terrorists from using Iraq as a staging ground. He set out to train Shi'ia & Sunni not to slaughter each other.  The Iraqui security forces are thoroughly infiltrated by terrorists.  Obama maintains Shrub's tradition of cognitive dissonance.

"Tonight, I encourage Iraq's leaders to move forward with a sense of urgency to form an inclusive government that is just, representative, and accountable to the Iraqi people."


just, representative,  accountable

    And Islamic?  The combination is impossible, and Obama knows it.  Corruption abounds, and there is great division and no will to compromise.

"...the Iraqi people will have a strong partner in the United States. Our combat mission is ending, but our commitment to Iraq's future is not."

strong partner

    They are Muslims, idiot. Allah explicitly commands them not to take Kuffar as partners.

"This new approach reflects our long-term partnership with Iraq-one based upon mutual interests, and mutual respect"

mutual interests

    We have no mutual interest with Islam. Islam's interest is total world conquest and domination, so that only Allah is worshiped altogether and everywhere; so that Shari'ah is enforced globally. Our interest is in liberty, security, prosperity & peace. There is no intersection, no convergence; nothing shared.

mutual respect

    There is no mutual respect and can be none.  Islam is contemptuous of everything un-Islamic. Islam hates our way of life without reservation and seeks to destroy it. It labels us Kuffar: rebells against Allah who must be defeated and gathered together into Hell.

"Ending this war is not only in Iraq's interest- it is in our own. The United States has paid a huge price to put the future of Iraq in the hands of its people. We have sent our young men and women to make enormous sacrifices in Iraq, and spent vast resources abroad at a time of tight budgets at home. We have persevered because of a belief we share with the Iraqi people -a belief that out of the ashes of war, a new beginning could be born in this cradle of civilization. Through this remarkable chapter in the history of the United States and Iraq, we have met our responsibility. Now, it is time to turn the page."

our own interest

    Our interest is in victory, not ignominious defeat thinly disguised. We wasted blood and treasure because we were unwilling to name and engage the enemy.

belief we share with the Iraqi people

    How can anyone be stupid enough to believe that?  We got rid of Saddam and replaced him with Shi'ites. We gained nothing.

met our responsibility

    We failed to secure  Iraq's arsenals and ammunition dumps.  We failed to secure their banks, museums and oil infrastructure.  We failed to eliminate Islam from Iraq because we made no effort at all.

"The greatness of our democracy is grounded in our ability to move beyond our differences, and to learn from our experience as we confront the many challenges ahead. And no challenge is more essential to our security than our fight against Al Qaeda."

learn from our experience

    We did not learn from Vietnam. We should have learned to seize and hold territory 24/7. We should have learned to secure borders and eliminate sanctuaries & supply lines.   We did not learn from Tehran. We should have learned to use massive, disproportionate  force  early on.  We did not learn from Somalia either.  

fight against Al Qaeda

    Our enemy is Islam, not a sub set of Islam.  What part of 8:39 & 9:29 does President Obama not comprehend?  What part of "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..." does he not comprehend?

"Americans across the political spectrum supported the use of force against those who attacked us on 9/11. Now, as we approach our 10th year of combat in Afghanistan, there are those who are understandably asking tough questions about our mission there. But we must never lose sight of what's at stake. As we speak, Al Qaeda continues to plot against us, and its leadership remains anchored in the border region of Afghanistan and Pakistan. We will disrupt, dismantle, and defeat Al Qaeda, while preventing Afghanistan from again serving as a base for terrorists."

those who attacked us on 9/11

    We were attacked by Muslims, motivated by the damnable doctrines of Islam which sanctify & mandate genocidal conquest  & terrorism.  Who has the courage to state the fact that security and peace are functions of eliminating Islam from the world?  Certainly not our President!

disrupt, dismantle, and defeat Al Qaeda

    Which availeth naught, because its parent organizations: al Ikhwan al-Muslimeen & Islam remain undaunted.

base for terrorists

    So long as the population and government of Afghanistan or any other nation remain Islamic, they will be a base for terrorists.

"Within Afghanistan, I have ordered the deployment of additional troops who-under the command of General David Petraeus -are fighting to break the Taliban's momentum."

break the Taliban's momentum

    Idiot!  We need to kill them!  When you go on the offensive, you kill the enemy and destroy their infrastructure.  Breaking their momentum is the wrong objective.

"A new push for peace in the Middle East will begin here tomorrow."

    They never learn. You can't push a piece of string.  You must put it around Islam's neck and pull it tight.  If you want peace anywhere  on the globe, eliminate Islam from that place.  Foundational Islamic doctrine requires the elimination of Israel and Jews.  No matter  what demands you make against Israel, she will never obtain peace and security without first eliminating Islam from the region.  Peace can only be obtained through victory, and victory by extinction of Islam.

 "America will do more than just defeat on the battlefield those who offer hatred and destruction -we will also lead among those who are willing to work together to expand freedom and opportunity for all people."

defeat on the battlefield

    Islam can not be defeated on the battlefield.  It must be destroyed by emancipating Allah's slaves.  We will have victory when they are all emancipated or dead, not before. Until that happy day there will be neither peace nor security.  Islam is perpetual war.   We must stop electing stupid people who can not recognize that fatal fact.

willing to work together

    The set of people willing to work together to expand freedom and opportunity and the set of Muslims are mutually exclusive.  There is no intersection of those sets. Islam is slavery, the polar opposite of freedom.  Islam is plunder, the polar opposite of productivity & opportunity.

"And the bedrock of that prosperity must be a growing middle class."

growing middle class

    How swiftly and smoothly president Obama segues from defense deception to domestic deception; from military warfare to class warfare. The imprudent spendthrift policies and economic meddling of Obama's party have brought us to our present low state.  Yes, Republicans who lacked the courage to resist aided them in their demolition of our economy.

    We need economic expansion, not redistribution! Get your boot off our necks!  Make Shrub's tax cuts permanent. Enact further tax cuts. Save the funds unspent in the imprudent "bail out"  & "stimulus".  Open all domestic oil fields to exploration and production both on and off shore.  And repeal  the potentially disastrous  "health care reform"!

"Part of that responsibility is making sure that we honor our commitments to those who have served our country with such valor. "

honor our commitments to veterans

The Obama administration plans to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for the treatment service related injuries of military personnel 

    Is that any less than the ultimate arrogant demagoguery?  He blathers about commitments, expecting us to forget how he tried to screw the veterans!  We've got to impeach that creep!!!

"In an age without surrender ceremonies, we must earn victory through the success of our partners and the strength of our own nation."

age without surrender ceremonies

    There was a surrender ceremony the year before I was born.  Why should it be the last?

Treasonous State Department Condemns Wrong Prayer

In '02, World Net Daily published translations of several  prayers delivered by Muslim clerics.  Yemen televised Sheik Akram Abd-al-Razzaq al-Ruqeihi praying at their Grand Mosque in Sanaa.


"O God, destroy the United States and its allies and let them suffer, particularly tyrant and arrogant Americans. O God, destroy the Jews, for they are within your power."

    Saudi Arabia televised a prayer by Sheik Sa'ud Bin-Ibrahim al-Shureim's from the Grand Mosque in Mecca. What would he pray for?

"O God, strengthen Islam and Muslims, humiliate infidelity and infidels, destroy your enemies, the enemies of Islam, and protect this country."

Whose destruction was he praying for?

    Sheik Muhammad Abd-al-Rahman Barakat spoke from Al-Rawdah Mosque in Damascus,  the government radio broadcast this prayer.

"O God, help Arabs and Muslims score victory over your enemy and their enemy and destroy the treacherous Zionists and their followers. O God, support our mujahedin brothers in the occupied Arab territories."

Islam Commentaries has a more extensive list of official execrations and source link.

    Who gives a damn?  Certainly not the U.S. State Department.  Google search:


But the first result without the quote marks is to an August 29 '10 Fox News report about condemnation of a Rabbi who suggested that the Almighty should strike  Israel's Muslim enemies with a plague.

"We regret and condemn the inflammatory statements by Rabbi Ovadia Yosef," State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said ... "These remarks are not only deeply offensive, but incitement such as this hurts the cause of peace. As we move forward to re-launch peace negotiations, it is important that actions by people on all sides help to advance our effort, not hinder it,"

   

Google gave me 53 results, none of them reported State Department condemnation of Muslim execrations.   In further searches, I was unable to find any record of State Department condemnation of prayers for the destruction of America and Israel.

    When a Jew prays for deliverance from evil, he is condemned, when Muslims pray for Israel's destruction, broadcast by state media, they are ignored.  Why are we governed by AssWholes & traitors?  Elections have consequences.    Be careful when voting and make no mistakes!

What Goes on in Mosques: Terrorist Fund Raising

Tom Trento o the Florida Security Council has a revelation for you.   You are about to view  Imam Mahdi Bray & George Galloway raising funds for HAMAS at the Al-Rahman Mosque in Orlando Florida.  

    In this video, you will see Mahdi Bray  making a physical expression of his support for HAMAS & Hizbollah. You will see Geoge Galloway remitting funds to HAMAS at a terrorist pep rally.  You will hear the leader shout Takbir and the crowd respond with Allahu Akhbar!!  You will see and hear evidence of extreme enthusiasm for institutions of great evil, institutions with blood on their hands.
   
    Later in the vidio, you will hear them shout Takbir and the congregation reply  Allahu Akhbar!! with the same enthusiasm  displayed in the HAMAS rally.  You will see them raising money for HAMAS in a Florida Mosque.

    Zakat is obligatory charity, a 2.5% tax on accumulated wealth and financial transactions. Zakat is detailed in Book h of Reliance of the Traveller, the handbook of Shafi'ite Fiqh, essentially Shari'ah.  This is a recognized part of Islamic law.  There are eight classes of recipients, each of which receives one eighth  of the total Zakat collected.  The seventh category  is detailed in h8.17 to which I have added emphasis. One eighth of zakat goes to the terrorists.


 TIIOSE FIGlITING FOR ALLAH
h8.17 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 (0: 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 (0: 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).

    A special zakat is due at the end of  Ramadan.  Do they collect it in food in urban areas, or do they collect it in cash, divide it and send 1/8 to HAMAS & co.?

h7.5 The zakat of 'Eid al-Fitr becomes obligatory
when the sun sets on the night before the 'Eid
(n:- meaning on the evening of the last day of
Ramadan).

Esposito's Question & My Answer

On August 27, John Esposito uttered and the On Faith Panel of  News Week & The Washington Post published  Is Islam a primary driver or cause of terrorism? which attracted my attention while I read an article by Jordan Sekulow:  Imam Rauf should apologize. While I generally agree with Sekulow, I admit that an apology from the Imam would not alter my attitude, even if I thought it to be sincere.  Nor would I be satisfied by relocation of the Park 51 project.

    I skimmed Esposito's article and discovered a spew of al-Taqiyya which deserves refutation. As is my habit, I will quote the most egregious passages and let those who want to read the  entire article use the link above.


"Islam, like all world religions, neither supports nor requires illegitimate violence." [Emphasis added.]

illegitimate violence

    Allah, through his conquest imperatives, legitimatizes  aggression.  Is it legitimate  to wage war because your intended victim does not share your beliefs & ritual practices?  Surah Al-Anfal 38 identifies "those who have disbelieved"  as the target of violence commanded in the next verse :  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... .  The explicit casus belli is disbelief.  Allah & his slaves think that is legitimate, do you?

    In Surah At-Taubah, Allah commands Muslims to fight  Jews & Christians until they are subjugated and make annual extortion payments called jizya.
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.  Is disbelief a legitimate casus belli?  You be the judge.  In my opinion, John Esposito practiced kitman to convey a false impression. 
 
"The Quran does not advocate or condone terrorism."

Quran does not advocate  terrorism

    That is not what Allah said. In Surah  Al-Imran 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).  What did Allah say he would do?  That could be a reference to the afterlife, is it? Here is the answer from Tafsir Al-Jalalayn. "We will cast terror (read ru‘b or ru‘ub) into the hearts of the disbelievers: after departing from Uhud they resolved to return in order to exterminate the Muslims, but they were terrified and did not return;..."

    Islam does not get off so easily, the reference is temporal, not eterna. In Surah Al Anfal, Allah again says that he will cast terror.  8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."

      Yeah, right, Allah issued the command to the angels; so why was he reminding  his companions of  the command?  Obviously it was something he wanted them to do.  Examine verse 57 carefully. 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson.  The meaning reaches full clarity in the light of  Surah Al-Hashr 2.

 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh's (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).     Allah terrorized the Bani An-Nadir so that they destroyed their own settlement, so you should take admonition.  Learn a lesson : take admonition. Get it?  By what agency did Allah cast terror?  Verse 13 has a clue for you.  59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh).
    The Jews were  more afraid of Moe's army than of Allah.  Ain't that the general idea?  Examine Abdullah Yusuf Ali's translation of 8:60.  Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. [Emphasis added.]
    Maximize your army to strike terror.  Got that clue yet?  

"As with other faiths, a radical fringe distorts and misinterprets mainstream and normative Islamic doctrines and laws."

distorts and misinterprets

    What did Allah command Muslims to do?  What did Moe and his "rightly guided caliphs" do?  Just how did Islam expand to rule  all of Arabia, northern Africa,  southern Europe and nearly half of Asia?  Sahih Bukhari's books of  Jihad, Khumus & Expedition have some clues for you.  Sure, there is an injunction against suicide.  There is a difference between wasting your death and killing Jews or pagans.  Get a clue.  The phrase "fought until he was killed"  occurs in several ahadith. Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2567, Sahih Muslim 19.4413, 20.4678,4679,4681,4683.
"They pay no attention to Islamic law which draws on the Quran to set out clear guidelines for the conduct of war and provides no support for hijacking and hostage taking."

no support for  hostage taking

    A search of Hilali & Khan's Noble Qur'an turned up ten matching Surahs for "ransom".  Most of them are not relevant, but one is particularly relevant.
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.

    The parenthetical expressions come from tafsirs used in the translation.  Allah reprimanded Moe for not killing enough of the enemy because he wanted ransom money.   Tafsir Al-Jalalayn makes matters abundantly clear.  "The following was revealed when they ransomed those taken captive at Badr: It is not for any Prophet to have (read as an takūna lahu or an yakūna lahu) prisoners until he has made slaughter in the land, going all the way in fighting disbelievers. You, O believers, desire the transient things of this world, its ephemeral gains, by ransoming, while God desires, for you, the Hereafter, that is, its reward, through your killing them; and God is Mighty, Wise: this was abrogated by His words [and set them free] afterward either with grace or by ransom [Q. 47:4]."     Surah Muhammad 4, as mentioned in the tafsir, reinforces the concept beyond all doubt.  47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allâh's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allâh, He will never let their deeds be lost,
    Moe was given permission to release captives for ransom after he had killed a sufficient number.
"Islam's relationship to violence and terrorism, as well as the primary causes of global terrorism, are often concealed and confused by the religious language and symbolism that extremists use."

Islam's relationship to violence and terrorism

    What is that relationship, if not that which is revealed in the Qur'an & hadith?  What texts do the "extremists" quote?

causes of global terrorism

    Islamic doctrine. Not poverty, not repression, not occupation, not ignorance, not illiteracy; Islamic doctrine. What did Allah command them to do?  What did Moe do?  The objective is accumulating   "good deeds"  to weigh against their sins on judgment day. If one does not die in battle, his sins are weighed against his "good deeds".   Allah has a clue for you in Surah At-Taubah 120, I will emphasize the crucial clause for clarity.  9:120. It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh's Messenger (Muhammad  when fighting in Allâh's Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn

    Muslims earn Brownie points by angering or injuring disbelievers.  That is the cause of terrorism.


"Religiously legitimated violence adds divine, authority that increases a terrorist leader's authority as well as moral justification, obligation, certitude, and heavenly reward, all of which enhance recruitment and a willingness to fight and die in a "sacred struggle." "

Religiously legitimated violence

    The most effective lies have a little sliver of truth mixed in to disguise them. That last quote is exemplary.  I already detailed the religious legitimation.  The obligation is fard al-kifaya, outlined in Reliance of the Traveller, o9.1.  The minimum requirement is one attack per year. The word reward occurs in 60 surahs.  Surah As-Saff 12 mentions the reward for participation in jihad. 61.12 (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn ­ Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success. To see their reward, begin reading at 56:10.
