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.

Morons Ignore Islam's Sworn Enmity at Our Peril

"Islam is not my enemy!"

A Reuters story about the protest against Rep. King's hearings into "radicalization" is illustrated by a photograph featuring a sign with this moronic message.

"Who would Jesus persecute? Islam is not my enemy!"

The only people Jesus persecuted were money changers whom he perceived to be corrupt.  Muhammad persecuted anyone who did not embrace his new cult. If you are not Muslim, Islam is your enemy. Consider the obvious meaning of J.M. Rodwell's translation of At-Taubah 29

Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.

Does that or does that not mean exactly what it says?  Lets consult Tafsir Ibn Kathir. The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah

[...] This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah's religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims' control. Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination.[...]

Did Moe confirm that, or is it an unauthorized rogue interpretation?

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."

Is that commandment an anachronism, limited in application to seventh century Arabia?  Lets consult the all purpose handbook of Shari'ah: Reliance of the Traveller.

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) ).

How do we know that is still applicable? Another hadith holds the answer for those who are intelligent enough to learn.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526:

    Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, "There is no god but Allah" and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

'Tain't over 'till the last Muslim is dead.  Is it clear to you yet? 

    Morons object, declaring that most Muslims reject the jihad doctrine.  If they do, they are not believers, they are hypocrites.

2:10. In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allâh has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies.

2:11. And when it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "We are only peacemakers."

3:156. O you who believe! Be not like those who disbelieve (hypocrites) and who say to their brethren when they travel through the earth or go out to fight: "If they had stayed with us, they would not have died or been killed," so that Allâh may make it a cause of regret in their hearts. It is Allâh that gives life and causes death. And Allâh is All­Seer of what you do.

    Morons object, declaring that most Muslims reject the violent surahs. That does not cut the mustard, because Islam is not cafeteria Catholicism, it is all or nothing, a package deal.

2:85. After this, it is you who kill one another and drive out a party of you from their homes, assist (their enemies) against them, in sin and transgression. And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, although their expulsion was forbidden to you. Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allâh is not unaware of what you do.

13:36. Those to whom We have given the Book (such as 'Abdullâh bin Salâm and other Jews who embraced Islâm), rejoice at what has been revealed unto you (i.e. the Qur'ân) , but there are among the Confederates (from the Jews and pagans) those who reject a part thereof. Say (O Muhammad ): "I am commanded only to worship Allâh (Alone) and not to join partners with Him. To Him (Alone) I call and to Him is my return."

13:37. And thus have We sent it (the Qur'ân) down to be a judgement of authority in Arabic. Were you (O Muhammad ) to follow their (vain) desires after the knowledge which has come to you, then you will not have any Walî (protector) or defender against Allâh.

    Morons object, declaring that "most Muslims are not violent".  The Morons do not comprehend the Islamic concept of religious obligation.  Fard ayn is binding on all Muslims individually such as salat & zakat.  Fard kifaya is a communal obligation, binding on he entire Muslim community until a sufficient number have responded, which relieves the rest. 

    The obligation to mount a military expedition against kuffar in every year is fard kifaya. Jihad only becomes fard ayn when Dar ul Islam is invaded and the Muslims are in danger of being overrun.

O9.1: The Obligatory Character of Jihad

Jihad is a communal obligation (def: c3.2).  When enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others (O: the evidence for which is the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

"He who provides the equipment for a soldier in jihad has himself performed jihad,"

and Allah Most High having said:

"Those of the believers who are unhurt but sit behind are not equal to those who fight in Allah's path with their property and lives. Allah has preferred those who fight with their property and lives a whole degree above those who sit behind. And to each, Allah has promised great good" (Koran 4:95).

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.

The second state is when non-Muslims invade a Muslim country or near to one, in which case jihad is personally obligatory (def: c3.2) upon the inhabitants of that country, who must repel the non-Muslims with whatever they can).

    Morons object, swearing that they have Muslim friends, who are the best of neighbors, kind and gentle, like family. Those Morons are truly ignorant and deceived.

5:51. O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliyâ' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliyâ' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliyâ', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers and unjust).

Tafsir Ibn Kathir has another clue for you.

[...]Allah said next,

﴿إِلاَ أَن تَتَّقُواْ مِنْهُمْ تُقَـةً﴾

(unless you indeed fear a danger from them) meaning, except those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly. For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda' said, "We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.'' Al-Bukhari said that Al-Hasan said, "The Tuqyah is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.''[...] The Prohibition of Supporting the Disbelievers 

    If Islam is not your enemy, then you are one of them,  the enemy of all free men not yet enslaved to Satan.  The protest is an exemplar of playing the victim card.  Islam,. the predator, is purveying itself as the victim of persecution. 

    The investigation is not about Islam, no Congressman has the courage delve deeply into the damnable doctrines & practices of the war cult.  It is about "radicalization" and whether the Muslim community, its organizations and leaders are cooperating in the campaign against terrorism. 

    In fact, "radicalization" is another lie; a misrepresentation of Islam.  Because Islam wears the false mantle of religion, it is assumed to be anodyne & beneficent.  The assumption makes asses of us.  Islam is a complete way of life, encompassing economics, law and war as well as 'religion' which serves as a camouflage and troop motivator. 

    Commands to wage war against disbelievers are contained in Islam's scripture, I showed you one of them along with its codification in Islamic law. Surah At-Taubah 111 exposes the relationship between Allah and the believers: they are his slaves, purchased to fight in his cause, killing and being killed.  Allah's cause is to make Islam dominate; rule the world.

9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .

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 4, Book 52, Number 65:

Narrated Abu Musa:

A man came to the Prophet and asked, "A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah's Cause?" The Prophet said, "He who fights that Allah's Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah's Cause."

    The factor that makes Muslims dangerous is belief, the test of which is hinted at in 9:111 and confirmed in 49:15.

49:15. Only those are the believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allah. Those! They are the truthful.

    Believers kill; its what Islam is; what Muslims do because they believe in Allah's threat and his promise.  If you believed that your eternal destiny depended on participation in jihad: the celestial bordello if you go to war and the fire if you don't, which would you choose? 

9:38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.

9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allâh is Able to do all things.

61:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.

61:11.  That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!

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.

    The arrogant, condescending Morons who pretend to possess moral superiority over "Islamophobes" who "persecute" Muslims and "defame" Islam, cast those who understand Islam as "racists" & "bigots".  In fact, they are the close minded bigots, who march in solidarity with the predators; identifying with them. The same Morons would have herded Jews into the "showers" for the Nazis in an earlier generation.

Terrorism is an Intrinsic Sacrament of Islam

A U.N. document entitled "Draft Decision on a panel on human rights of victims of terrorism" contains an egregiously obnoxious lie, which is derived from standard boilerplate from the "combating defamation of Islam" resolutions.

Reaffirming  that terrorism cannot and should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization
or othnic group. (PP11 GA RES 62/ 169)

Is there some factual basis for asserting that terrorism cannot be associated with Islam?  Is there some factual basis for asserting that terrorism should not be associated with Islam?    I challenge anyone to post a comment containing whatever relevant, verifiable evidence they may have to prove those  most obnoxious assertions.

    Terrorism is associated with Islam for good reasons.

  • The attacks on
    • Bali
    • Beslan
    • London
    • Madrid
    • New York
      • were perpetrated by Muslims, in Allah's name.
  • Allah said that he would cast terror.
  • Allah ordered Muslims to build a powerful army to "strike terror".
  • Allah "cast terror" so that the Muslims captured and killed their intended victims, plundering their wealth.
  • Moe bragged about being "made victorious" by terror. 

    The fact is clear on the face of  Islam's canonical texts.

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).
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."

8:57. If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.

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.

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.

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).

59:13. Verily ye [are] stronger [than they], by reason of the terror [cast] into their breasts from God. This, because they [are] not people of prudence.

  Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
The Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey.
2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

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).

    The association is clear, direct and unmistakable; it is not susceptible to misinterpretation.  Why do the curse worthy fools of the U.N.  continue to reaffirm an easily refuted lie?  They are convinced that we are stupid, ignorant, gullible fools who will believe any lie if it is repeated with sufficient frequency and 'authority'.

NPR: Proctological Rosetta Stone

James O'Keefe 's video of two NPR executives pandering to perceived patrons from the world's worst ideology exposes with great clarity the outstanding arrogance & hypocrisy of the LefTard elite.  While they pose as the self-confirmed best and brightest, they stink like dead carp shining in the moonlight on a river bank.

    When I had a working idiot box, I watched PBS documentaries and news although I was aware of and disgusted by their bias. I listen to Pipe Dreams and occasionally to various NPR news offerings.  But I do not hesitate to jump onto the bandwagon of demand for the termination of federal funding for public broadcasting.

Thanks and a tip of the hat to Atlas Shrugs!

"The current Republican party is not really the republican party.    It's been hijacked by this group -- that is-- basically they are, they are, they believe in sort of I mean, it's scary. "

"What NPR stood for is non-racist, non - bigoted, straightforward telling of the news.  Our feeling is that if a person expresses his or her opinion which anyone is entitled to do in a free society they are compromised as a journalist, they can no longer fairly report and the question w asked internally was can Juan Williams when he makes a statement like he made can he report to the Muslim population and be believed and the answer is no.  ... lost all credibility and that breaks your basic ethics as a journalist."

    The statement about the Republican party is an opinion; an institutional opinion, represented by a top fund raising outreach executive.  NPR has shed its veil of objectivity & credibility and must be defunded, by its own express standard.

    http://www.congress.org/ gives us the keys to the Republic. Do what I am about to do:  once this is posted, I will go there and send emails to my Representative & Senators, the message will be a link to this post.

H.Res. 141 Condemns Blasphemy Laws

The recent assassinations of two prominent Pakistani officials has not escaped the notice of Congress. One of my Google Alerts informed me of the existence of a House Resolution recently submitted by Rep. Trent Franks

    The resolution is not limited to the murders, it also covers recent abuses of Pakistan's blasphemy law and the OIC's campaign to impose similar laws internationally through U.N. resolutions.

    As soon as I read this resolution, I visited http://www.congress.org/  and sent an email to my Representative, urging him to sign onto the resolution and vote for it at every opportunity.  At the same time, I sent emails to my Senators urging them to initiate and vote for a parallel resolution in the Senate. 

     I have highlighted what I consider to be the most important provisions of the resolution.  Please read it, and if you agree with me, email your Representative & Senators urging them to vote for this resolution.

    Art is long and time is fleeting. In past years, similar resolutions have been bottled up in committee, long after they could have had any possible good effect. It is expected that the UNHRC will pass another in their series of defamation resolutions this month.  We need to apply sufficient pressure to get this resolution passed before that happens. 

112th CONGRESS  1st SessionH. RES. 141Expressing condolences for the murder of Punjab Governor Salman Taseer  and Pakistan Minister of Minority Affairs Shahbaz Bhatti, and calling    for a Taseer-Bhatti Resolution in the United Nations Human Rights     Council honoring their courage in defense of core principles of  Pakistan's democracy, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human              Rights, particularly the freedom of religion._______________________________________________________________________                    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES                             March 3, 2011Mr. Franks of Arizona (for himself, Mr. Cleaver, Mr. Shuler, Mr. Duncan of South Carolina, Mr. Pitts, Mr. Daniel E.

International Judge the Koran Day: Update

STAND UP AMERICA NOW! claims in a press release that Anjem Choudary has confirmed acceptance of an invitation to serve as defense attorney for the Koran at their International Judge the Koran Day event scheduled for March 20, 2011.

    In view of the no show on the third, I don't expect Choudary to go to Florida to defend the Koran.  In view of his conduct in television and radio interviews, I am sure that he would attack those who question the Koran instead of defending it against their charges.   Anjem Choudary's  participation should greatly enhance the event's media presence and coverage.   

"The Koran is accused of inciting murder, rape and terrorist activities.  It is under suspicion of the direct or indirect murder of millions of people around the world."

   Inciting murder? It incites war, with two chapters entirely devoted to it and several more heavily involved, resulting in an estimated 2.7*108 deaths since 622. In citing rape?  Beyond any doubt.  Seven chapters contain this expression: "right hands possess".  I want you to see how it is used; here is a very clear example.  Muslims are given license to rape captives and slaves.  Sexual exploitation of slaves is not a barrier to admission to Paradise.

23:1. Successful indeed are the believers.

23:2. Those who offer their Salât (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness.

23:3. And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that Allâh has forbidden).

23:4. And those who pay the Zakât .

23:5. And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts)

23:6. Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then, they are free from blame;

23:7. But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors;

23:8. Those who are faithfully true to their Amanât (all the duties which Allâh has ordained, honesty, moral responsibility and trusts etc.) and to their covenants;

23:9. And those who strictly guard their (five compulsory congregational) Salawât (prayers) (at their fixed stated hours).

23:10. These are indeed the inheritors.

23:11. Who shall inherit the Firdaus (Paradise). They shall dwell therein forever.

    Inciting terrorist activities?  Allah said that he would cast terror and that he cast terror.  He also commanded Muslims to build a mighty army to terrify their enemies.

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.
