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.

Fighting Terror

Education is key to fighting terror

The Bangkok Post gave that headline to an interview with Jean-Paul Laborde, who heads the U.N.'s Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force Office.  Click the link above to read the article, i am digging for coprolites. 

Terrorism has yet to be eradicated after lots of security and law enforcement efforts over several consecutive years, so integrated approaches which uphold the value of educational curricula, promotion of tolerance and protection of human rights are needed for medium-term and sustainable policies to better address the regional and global menace.

yet to be eradicated

    How do you hope to eradicate terrorism without eradicating those who perform it and those who direct them to perform it?

lots of security

    A balloon compressed at any point expands wherever it is not compressed. It is not possible to secure every potential soft target 24/7/365.

law enforcement efforts

    Terrorism is not a law enforcement issue, it is one component of warfare. Since it is inspired by sanctified doctrine and directed by both state and non-state entities, it must be combated on two battlefronts: ideological and military.  Whenever you arrest or kill one terrorist, others will come forward to replace him.

educational curricula

    We do not control the schools in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria or Iran. Their text books are not printed in our language. We can not dictate what content they inculcate or how they inculcate it.  The suggestion that it can be done demonstrates the rare height of arrogance achieved by bureaucrats.
   
    Schools in Islamic nations teach the sanctity, necessity & divine obligation of terrorism because they are Islamic. They teach the contents of the Qur'an, Sunnah & Sira because those texts define & exemplify Islam.  If you want to do something about that, eliminate Islam.

promotion of tolerance

    We stupidly tolerate Islam, which seeks to destroy or dominate us; there is no better sign of civilizational insanity.  Islam does not tolerate us because intolerance is ordained by Allah in his book and Moe in his Sunnah.  You can not inject tolerance into Islam because Allah said "whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him" [3:85] Moe said "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.'".  [Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387]

protection of human rights

    Such as our right to live, secure in our persons and property; or the Muslim's 'right' to kill, enslave, rape, pillage and plunder. Moe said something about that in the hadith cited above, so I will quote the entire saying here. Read it slowly; let the full meaning sink in.

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."

ordered to fight the people

    What could possibly be less tolerant than that?

till they say

    Freedom of religion, anyone?

 then their blood and property will be sacred to us

    Our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims until we become Muslims. Life? liberty? Property?  Kiss them goodbye if you will not eliminate Islam from the earth. Its open season on us so long as Islam exists.

has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have 

    Only Muslims have rights. Got a clue yet??    

sustainable policies

    Slowly bleeding to death, sending our soldiers to fight an invisible enemy with suicidal rules of engagement is not sustainable.  Random pat downs & body scans are not sustainable. Waiting for the next bomb to detonate is not sustainable. Constant terror is not sustainable.  Paying tribute is not sustainable. What did President Jefferson do?

In the coming years, greater regional and international cooperation will be very much needed, or we will not have the whole picture of the terrorist groups.

regional and international cooperation

    You might begin by adopting Israel's airline security tactics and continue by accepting her check points and security wall instead of condemning them.

terrorist groups

    There is one terrorist group: Islam.

Violent extremism is still very well spread among the populations. If you don't do something now _ for example, promoting proper Islamic teaching _ in a year or two it will be more dangerous.

Violent extremism

    "Its Islam, stupid."  Islam is intrinsically violent, Allah's jihad imperatives are clearly stated in the Qur'an. [8:39, 9:29]  

proper Islamic teaching

    Islamic teaching consists of the Qur'an, Sunnah, Sira & Fiqh, exactly what they are teaching now: the 'religious obligation' to hate & exterminate Jews and conquer the entire world.  Anything that contradicts the Qur'an & Sunnah will not be accepted, it will be rejected as bida.

    The next coprolite incorporates the questioner's false premise which is included and italicized.

How do you balance recognition of expression of religious freedom and prevention of radicalism, especially in grass-roots education?

We need to promote a culture of peace and of tolerance.

While we speak about freedom of religion, we must address issues of tolerance to respect diversity.

religious freedom

    The right to practice one's religion is restricted to Muslims. Where Allah's writ runs, Jews & Christians are forbidden to build or maintain houses of worship, display crosses, ring bells, pray aloud in public and hold public processions & funerals.  They are not permitted to own or carry weapons, use saddles or testify in court  against a Muslim.

    The practice of Islam involves obedience to Allah & emulation of Moe. It is inseverable, not a la carte. Allah commanded: "fight them until". Jihad is an integral part of the practice of Islam. It can not be ignored, neither can it be stricken from the Qur'an. Believers fight in Allah's cause, killing others and being killed. [9:111] This little sample of fiqh may help you to comprehend the fatal fact.

culture of peace and of tolerance

    As already demonstrated, peace & tolerance are polar opposites of Islam. They won't fit and can't be forced.

Of course, there is the insurgency in southern Thailand, but there needs transnational elements before the UN can get involved. Internal terrorism is not our issue.

transnational elements

    The insurgency in southern Thailand is Islamic. Islam is transnational, it crosses borders freely. U.N. bureaucrats are neither intelligent enough nor honest enough to acknowledge that fact.

fighting terror

    Terror is a psychological condition, imposed as a battle tactic for the purpose of rendering a victim incapable of mounting an effective defense.  When stung by a wasp, do you settle for killing the offending wasp?  No, you destroy the nest so that you will not be stung again.  Islam is the source of terrorism. Allah said "I will cast terror".  Allah commanded Muslims to maximize the strength of their army to "strike terror" in their enemies. Allah cast terror, resulting in the death, enslavement and dispossession of local Jewish settlements. Moe bragged that: "I have been made victorious with terror".

    It is not possible to fight terror, you must fight its source: Islam. Believers are motivated by Allah's promise of eternity in the celestial bordello and threat of eternity in the fire.  So long as there are Islamic believers , there will be terrorism.  You have three choices:

  1. make them stop believing
  2. make them stop breathing
  3. suffer continued torment and eventual defeat & enslavement.

Defamation of Religions Resolution Passed in Third Committee

Draft was adopted with 76 votes in favor, 64 against and 42 abstentions.
GA Third Committee Revised Draft Resolution "Combating defamation of religions"Development [Eye on the UN]

The link is to an earlier version, prior to the substitution of vilification for defamation.  The Volokh Conspiracy indicates that it was the more recent  amended version which was approved.

76–64 with 42 abstentions. 
http://volokh.com/2010/11/24/un-general-assembly-passes-another-resolution-urging-nations-to-forbid-defamation-of-religion/
81–55 with 43  '09  26

-5    9            -1

Many of the news reports  mention the decreasing level of support for the resolution.  So it got five fewer votes in favor and nine more in opposition. Big deal, it still passed.  While the trend is encouraging, it is not satisfying.

    The U.N.'s press release is ambiguous, leaving uncertainty about the identity and content of the draft which was voted on.

The draft resolution on the Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief, would have the Assembly condemn all forms of intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief, as well as any incitement to religious hatred through the use of print, audio-visual or electronic media.  It would go on to emphasize that “no religion should be equated with terrorism, as this may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned”.  Nicholas Nihon of Belgium, the main sponsor, noted with regret that in order to achieve consensus, the text carried no reference to the right of persons to change their faith, or not to adhere at all to any religion or belief.  Action on the draft was preceded by the introduction of another draft by Morocco on behalf of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, on combating defamation of religions that would, among several points, have the Assembly express deep concern that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with terrorism.


L.32/Rev.1   Elimination of all forms of intolerance and of discrimination based on religion or belief  Oral revision not reflected in this version.

10. Also emphasizes that no religion should be equated with terrorism, as this
may have adverse consequences on the enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion
or belief of all members of the religious communities concerned;
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and wrongly
associated with human rights violations and terrorism; [combating defamation / vilification of Islam]


These similar provisions fly in the face of the Qur'an's five explicit and two implicit references to casting terror and two statements by Moe in which he bragged about winning with terror.  Have any of these idiots read The Qur'anic Concept of War? Why would a Pakistan army training manual use such language?

Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only
a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into
the opponent's heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be
achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet
and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon
the enemy; it is me decision we wish to impose upon him.

 

(i) To ensure that, in accordance with appropriate national legislation and in
conformity with international human rights law, the freedom of all persons and
members of groups to establish and maintain religious, charitable or humanitarian
institutions is fully respected and protected;


The obvious connection with the Holy Land Foundation trial can not be ignored. Zakat of 2.5% is assessed on wealth and transactions. 1/8 of zakat is allocated to those "fighting in Allah's cause".


(l) To promote, through the educational system and other means, mutual
understanding, tolerance, non-discrimination and respect in all matters relating to
freedom of religion or belief by encouraging, in the society at large, a wider
knowledge of different religions and beliefs and of the history, traditions, languages
and cultures of the various religious minorities existing within their jurisdiction;


This provision is an obvious demand that our schools be used to indoctrinate students with hagiographic images of Islam, falsely portraying it as a "religion of peace"  They are waging war against us, trying to out breed & subvert us and we are supposed to tolerate it. Yeah, right.  We are supposed to respect a war cult whose members believe that they have a divine mission to conquer us. Yeah, right. 

    This vote by the third committee sets the stage for final passage by the General Assembly next month.  That will give Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan and others immoral support for the local laws used to persecute minorities. 

    On a parallel track, running under the radar, the HRC's Ad Hoc Committee on the Elaboration of Complementary Standards is working on a protocol to inject the resolution's provisions into ICERD, giving them the force of international law.  Few know about this, nobody is doing anything to stop it. Now is the time to rise up and raise Hell!   For liberty's sake, sign, publicize, promote and share this petition:  International Qur'an Petition.

Combating Religious Hatred and Vilification

I had seen reports that the draft resolution on Combating Defamation of Religions had been edited to substitute vilification for defamation but I had not seen substantive details prior to last night.  One of my Google Alerts linked to an article which included a link to the amended resolution. 

   What is the big deal?  The State Department asserts that the USA rejects resolution on the basis of the concept of defamation of religions.  I presume that the edit is an attempt to throw a lifeline to Obamination.  Recall that while Obamination rejects defamation, he accepts negative stereotyping, which was substituted for defamation in the Freedom of Opinion and Expression resolution.  The OIC is tinkering with the semantics in hopes of sinning over some of the nay sayers and obstainers to their side. 

    None of the resolutions define the crucial terms, so I checked the on line dictionaries. A Google search turned up fifteen definitions of defamation.

  • Seven definitions specify that the victim  is a person.
  • Four definition specify that the statement must be false.
  • Six definitions list slander as an element.
  • Five definitions list libel as an element.
  • Two definitions list calumny as an element.
  • One of the definitions lists vilification as an element.
  • Three of the definitions list malicious as an element.

    Next, I looked up vilification, receiving four results.

  • Two definitions listed defamation as an element.
  • One definition listed calumny as an element.
  • One definition listed slander and libel as elements.

    Next, I looked up negative stereotyping , striking out. Removing the adjective resulted in fifteen definitions.  These are the best of the lot.

  • A stereotype is a commonly held public belief about specific social groups, or types of individuals. The concepts of "stereotype" and "prejudice" are often confused with many other different meanings. ...
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotyping
  • stereotype - pigeonhole: treat or classify according to a mental stereotype; "I was stereotyped as a lazy Southern European"
  • stereotype - a conventional or formulaic conception or image; "regional stereotypes have been part of America since its founding"
    wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

    To determine the meaning of those terms, as used in the resolutions, we must examine their context. 

  • Stressing that defamation of religions is a serious affront to human dignity leading to the illicit restriction of the freedom of religion of their adherents and incitement to religious hatred and violence,

Who is defamed?  Is Islam a human person?  How does illustrating the cause--effect relationship of Islam to terrorism affront human dignity?  If Muslims find their dignity affronted by exposure of the truth about Islam, they can restore their dignity by converting to a pacifist religion.
   
    How does defamation lead to illicit restriction of freedom of religion?  The reference is obviously to the Swiss minaret ban and the French Burqa ban.  What do minarets have to do with freedom of religion?  In ancient times, they were watch towers. Muslims adopted them for the call to prayer. They also serve as a powerful symbol of Islamic supremacy.  But they are not mentioned in the Qur'an or hadith as religious requirements. 

    Visit Open Burhan to verify the literal translation and compare the other translations of 33:59. You can check the entry in an Arab/English dictionary to verify it.

  • You, you the prophet, say to your wives and your daughters and the believers' women they (F) near (lengthen) on them from their shirts/gowns/wide dresses, that (is) nearer that (E) they (F) be known (better than being identified), so they (F) do not be harmed mildly/harmed, and God was/is forgiving, merciful.

If you want to know the real deal, read Sahih Bukhari 1.4.148. Its about Umar hassling Sauda, one of Moe's wives when she went out to answer a call of nature.

  • 14. Reaffirms the obligation of all States to enact the legislation necessary to prohibit the advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, [Emphasis added.]

    That paragraph contains two key phrases which, when compared to certain relevant public statements, give us the final clue.


The Secretary-General is concerned over the controversy that has been created by the publication of the Danish cartoons.  He believes that the freedom of the press should always be exercised in a way that fully respects the religious beliefs and tenets of all religions.
http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2006/sgsm10334.doc.htm


In plain language, Kofi Annan would have prevented the publication of the cartoons if it was in his power. That is the power they are seeking.

Reuters quotes U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon about Fitna:

“There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence,” Ban said in a statement. “The right of free expression is not at stake here.”

    The Secretarys General told us that the Danish Cartoons did not respect Islamic religious beliefs and that Geert Wilders' documentary constituted hate speech and incitement to violence.

The cartoon of greatest concern depicts Moe with a bomb in his turban, implying that he was a terrorist.  Moe never had a bomb because he died prior to the invention of gunpowder. But he was a terrorist, by his own admission:

  • Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey. [Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331, Emphasis added.]
  • I have been made victorious with terror [ Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220, Emphasis added.]

The hate speech and incitement in Fitna come from the Qur'an and clerics, not from Geert Wilders.


    Lets get down to the real issue of defamation, negative stereotyping. ¶ 24 contains a 28 item enumerated list. The seventh item is of interest.

  • 7. Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;

Fitna and the Motoons display that association; what is wrong with it?  Re-examine the quotes from Bukhari's collection of authentic sayings. Moe said that he won by terrifying his victims.  The Qur'an is not silent about this issue.

  • 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).

We shall terrorize the disbelievers. Click the link and read the context, it is one of aggressive conquest. 

  • 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."

What did Allah say he would do?  What did he order the angels to do? After reading this appetizer from Tafsir Ibn Kathir, click the link and read the entire passage.

  • Ar-Rabi` bin Anas said, "In the aftermath of Badr, the people used to recognize whomever the angels killed from those whom they killed, by the wounds over their necks, fingers and toes, because those parts had a mark as if they were branded by fire.''
  • 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.

Compare the last clause in 8:57 to the last clause in 59:2.  The objective is to build a reputation for brutality; you will see the application in 59:13.

  • [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.

Build the biggest army you can to strike terror.  What is the "cause of God"? [hint]  Now we get down to the practical application of those verses.

  • 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.

    33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things. 

What did Allah say he would do?  What did he do?  What resulted?  Moe and his army killed the men of one tribe and enslaved their widows and orphans. But, of course, Islam has no connection to terror and human rights violations. Its the religion of peace.

  • 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).

What did Allah do to the Bani An-Nadir?  What is the meaning of the admonition?  Can you relate that to the lesson of 8:57?

  • 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 fear Muslims more than they fear Allah. Why is that?  Can you make the connections with 8:57 & 59:2?  How did Allah cast terror into their hearts?

    Those Muslims are supremely arrogant; they assume that we are ignorant, gullible fools who will believe anything if it is repeated with sufficient frequency. "Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism".  Islam's scripture and tradition inform us that the statement from ¶ 24.7 is an accursed lie. They want to base international law on that lie, criminalizing  revelation of the fact that it is a lie!

    The true source of Islamic blasphemy law is Reliance of the Traveller.  Observe the penalty for apostasy.

  • 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.

Apostates are killed. What acts warrant their death?  Reliance lists twenty, these are particularly relevant.

  • o8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam

    (O: Among the things that entail apostasy from Islam (may Allah protect us from them) are:

  • -4- to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);

    -5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);

    -6- to be sarcastic about Allah's name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;

    -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 belong to it;

    -16- to revile the religion of Islam;

    -17- to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah;

    -18- to deny the existence of angels or jinn (def: w22), or the heavens;

    -19- to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law;

    -20- or to deny that Allah intended the Prophet's message (Allah bless him and give him peace) to be the religion followed by the entire world (dis: w4.3-4) (al-Hadiyya al-`Ala'iyya (y4), 423-24). )


    How do those rules apply to us as disbelievers?  When disbelievers are conquered and subjugated as dhimmis under Islamic supremacy, they are obligated by a treaty of protection. That treaty is violated if they perform certain acts listed in Reliance. Guess what the penalty is.

  • o11.10

    The agreement is also violated (A: with respect to the offender alone) if the state has stipulated that any of the following things break it, and one of the subjects does so anyway, though if the state has not stipulated that these break the agreement, then they do not; namely, if one of the subject people:

    -5- or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.

  • o11.11

    When a subject's agreement with the state has been violated, the caliph chooses between the four alternatives mentioned above in connection with prisoners of war (o9.14). 

  • o9.14

    When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph (def: o25) considers the interests (O: of Islam and the Muslims) and decides between the prisoner's death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy.

    When the resolution is voted out of the third committee and passed in the General Assembly, it will not have the force of law, but it will add unwarranted legitimacy to existing blasphemy laws which are used to persecute religious minorities in several Islamic nations.

    Unfortunately, that is not the real threat to our liberty. This is:  Ad Hoc Committee on the elaboration of complementary standards.  The cmte. will meet at the end of November for a week and a few days. Its purpose is to insert the resolution into ICERD through a binding protocol, giving it the force of  international law.  Last year, the cmte. bogged down in procedural matters. We have no way of knowing when it will finish its work, but when it does, we will be outvoted and the protocol will become law.

    Several blog posts about the ad hoc cmte. have been compiled.

    The resolution will be voted on in the cmte., the vote is expected to happen Monday or Tuesday.  The General Assembly vote should happen in December. Several human rights organizations are lobbying against it, but with little hope of success.   Besides signing the petition posted by Open Doors, there is not much we can do about it.

    Our best tactic is a counter attack: to raise the political cost of censoring us above Islam's threshold of pain.  As I showed you their egregious lie and proved it above, you can share that information with others.  Copy and cross post this blog post. Paste it into emails. Tell everyone who will listen about the injustice being perpetrated by the OIC. 

    Three international human rights covenants contain provisions which would, if enforced, require that Islam be proscribed by law.  The purpose of the International Qur'an Petition is to bring the vital facts to the attention of the public and the World Court. Please sign it and spread it. Cross post it on your blog or web site. Send it by email to  everyone you can hope to influence.
