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.

UN Counter Terrorism: Cognitive Dissonance

In a previous post, I detailed the statements of Allah and his messenger which sanctify, mandate and incite Islamic terrorism, as expressly denied in three statements before the General Assembly's 6th Committee.  This post concentrates on the cognitive dissonance exemplified by those statements. 

    The fun begins with the double representation of Kazakhstan as a member of the SCO  and a representative of the OIC.  How does Kazakhstan reconcile these polar opposite positions?

  • condemning terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, regardless of its
    motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.
  • terrorism, irrespective of its motivation, objectives, forms and manifestations,
    committed by whomsoever and wherever, can never be justified.
  • without any "double standards"
  • ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  • root causes of terrorism including unlawful use of
    force, aggression, foreign occupation, festering international disputes, denial of
    the right of peoples living under foreign occupation to self-determination,
  • outstanding issues including those related to the legal definition of terrorism,
    particularly on the distinction between terrorism and the struggle for the rights of
    self-determination by people under foreign occupation,
    How is it possible at once to condemn all forms of terrorism, regardless of motivation, location &  perpetrator without double standards and to exclude terrorist attacks against Israel from the definition of terrorism?  How can it be permissible to bomb civilian mass transit in Israel but not in Europe?

    The fun continues with cognitive dissonance regarding the root cause of terrorism. 
  • The SCO member States express grave concern over the expansion of terrorist ideology.
  • We actively support the widespread prevention of terrorism, including countering the ideology that nourishes it.
  • ----------------------------------------------------
  • No religion or religious doctrine encourage or inspires acts or terrorism.
  • improving the living conditions of the poor and unemployed youth and
    people living under political and historical oppression and foreign occupation.
  • In this connection, we note that attempts to link terrorism with any particular religion or a particular ethnic
    group are themselves provocative and contributes to the spread of terrorism.
China swerves into the truth by citing terrorist ideology, but does not name or describe it, obviously because of excessive political correctness. China's affiliate, Kazakhstan, assigns economic injustice, oppression & occupation as causes of terrorism.  Which is it: the belief that Allah demands global conquest, sanctifies & mandates terrorism as exemplified by his messenger, or poverty and foreign occupation? 

    Qatar brings another dimension to cognitive dissonance, asserting that exposing the Islamic doctrines that incite terrorism provokes terrorism.  If Islam was not involved, exposing it would not provoke Muslims to engage in terrorism.  With one sentence, Qatar blows up the entire house of cards.

China/SCO

It is my great honor to speak today on behalf of the Members
of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO): the Republic of
Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, the Russian Federation, the
Republic of Tajikistan, the Republic of Uzbekistan , and my own
country the People's Republic of China.

The SCO reiterates its fundamental position of condemning
terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, regardless of its
motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed.

In this regard, the SCO Member States
emphasizes that counter-terrorism cooperation should be
conducted on the principle of respect for international law
including state sovereignty and without any "double standards" .

The SCO member States express grave concern over the
expansion of terrorist ideology. Representatives of numerous
ethnicities with different religious beliefs and cultural traditions
live in the territory of this Organization. It is vital that the idea of
condemning terrorism becomes an intrinsic part of the dialogue
between religions and civilizations. We actively support the
widespread prevention of terrorism, including countering the
ideology that nourishes it.

Kazakhstan/OIC

The OIC Group reaffirms that terrorism should not be associated with any religion,
race, faith, theology, values, culture, society or group. No religion or religious
doctrine encourage or inspires acts or terrorism, and, thus, none should be
portrayed as such.

To achieve this objective the OIC Group support a comprehensive strategy to combat
terrorism that must address the root causes of terrorism including unlawful use of
force, aggression, foreign occupation, festering international disputes, denial of
the right of peoples living under foreign occupation to self-determination,
political and economic injustices, and political marginalization and alienation.

We reaffirm our determination to make every
effort to reach a consensus agreement on the draft convention, by resolving the
outstanding issues including those related to the legal definition of terrorism,
particularly on the distinction between terrorism and the struggle for the rights of
self-determination by people under foreign occupation, and colonial or alien
domination, as well as on the scope of the acts covered by the draft Convention.

Qatar/Arab Group

On the other hand, it is unfortunate that a large part of international efforts to
combat terrorism is limited to reactions to terrorism and its symptoms, rather than
discussing and addressing its root causes and eliminating the factors that feed it. For
international efforts to eliminate terrorism to succeed, it is imperative to address its
root causes, as recognized by the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy,
and the relevant resolutions of the Security Council. This includes several aspects,
including improving the living conditions of the poor and unemployed youth and
people living under political and historical oppression and foreign occupation. We
must also prevent the incitement to hatred, including incitement to violence and
hatred of minorities of ethnic groups, religions and foreigners. In this connection, we
note that attempts to link terrorism with any particular religion or a particular ethnic
group are themselves provocative and contributes to the spread of terrorism.

Root Cause of International Terrorism

Speakers at the General Assembly's 6th Committee raised the issue of causation, invoking unstated false premises:

  • International terrorism can be eliminated by removing a few root causes. 
  • The root causes of international terrorism do not include ideology. 
    Examine Qatar's statement, which approaches the Acme of arrogance. [All emphasis added.]

On the other hand, it is unfortunate that a large part of international efforts to

poverty & unemployment

    Yeah, that's the ticket! Usama bin Ladin formed al-Qaeda because he was impoverished and unemployed. A construction engineer with inherited wealth, bin Ladin was motivated by something else, not poverty.

political and historical oppression

    Were the medical, law & engineering students who were studying in European universities motivated to mount terrorist acts by oppression?  Were they oppressed by the European nations they attacked or were they oppressed by dictatorships in Arabia & Asia?

foreign occupation

    Exactly what foreign nation was America occupying & oppressing September 11,2001?  We were protecting Kuwait & Saudi Arabia from invasion and enforcing UN resolutions in Iraq, we were not engaged in occupation & oppression.

link terrorism with any particular religion

    I provoke terrorism by publicizing the fact that Islamic terrorism flows directly from Islamic doctrines enshrined in the Qur'an & exemplified by Moe's sunnah.  Yeah, right.

     "We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve", "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved", "deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind ", "to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah", "Allah 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.", "Indeed, you strike more terror in their hearts than their fear of God".

    "Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey."  "I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy)"

    Lets strip off the chaff and review what Allah & Moe said.

  • I will cast terror
  • to strike terror
  • Allah cast terror
  • you strike more terror
  • victorious with terror
    Surah At-Taubah 120 contains the smoking fuse, a statement which confirms the rest in the worst possible way. Muslims earn Brownie Points by terrorism: "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."

    Of course, it could not possibly mean that, could it.  But two of the most respected exegetes agree: Tafsir Ibn Kathir & Tafsir al-Jalalayn.
http://www.islam-universe.com/tafsir//9.22174.html

(nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers), by strategies of war that would terrify their enemy,

(nor inflict), a defeat on the enemy,

(but is written to their credit) as compensation for these steps that are not under their control, but a consequence of performing good deeds that earn them tremendous rewards,


http://www.altafsir.com/Tafasir.asp?tMadhNo=0&tTafsirNo=74&tSoraNo=%209&tAyahNo=%20120&tDisplay=yes&UserProfile=0

nor tread they any tread (mawti’an is a verbal noun, meaning wat’an) that enrages the disbelievers, nor gain any gain from the enemy, of God, be it through slaughter, capture or plunder, but a righteous deed is therefore recorded for them, that they may be rewarded for it. Truly God does not leave the wage of the virtuous to go to waste, that is, the wage of those [mentioned], rather He rewards them.

Focus on the most significant elements again:
  • Exactly what part of 9:120 do you not comprehend?
    • raise the anger of disbelievers
    • enrages the disbelievers
    • good deeds that earn them tremendous rewards
    • a defeat on the enemy
    • slaughter, capture or plunder
    • righteous deed is therefore recorded for them
    Lets put it together to make the pattern crystal clear.
  • Do Allah's words and Moe's bragging match up in a congruent pattern or not? 
    • I will cast terror
    • strike fear
    • strike terror
    • Allah cast terror
    • you are more of a terror
    • victorious with terror.
    Lets take a closer look at the concluding clauses of 8:57 & 59:2 to make the pattern stand out.
  • What do these ayat have in common?
    •  so that they may take admonition
    •  so that they may be admonished
    • will always be aware of the threat of your power
    • so that they take a lesson
      • So learn a lesson, O ye who have eyes!
      • take warning, then, O ye with eyes (to see)!
      • Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
    Brigadier General S.K. Malik wrote a strategy manual for Pakistan's army. It is called "The Qur'anic Concept of War". What role might terror play therein?

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.

Terror cannot be struck into the hearts of an army by merely
 cutting its lines of communication or depriving it of its routes
of withdrawal. It is basically related to the strength or weakness
of the human soul. It can be instilled only if the opponent's
Faith is destroyed. Psychological dislocation is temporary;
spiritual dislocation is permanent. Psychological dislocation can be
produced by a physical act but this does not hold good of the
spiritual dislocation. To instill terror into the hearts of the enemy, 
it is essential. in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate his Faith. An
invincible Faith is immune to terror. A weak Faith offers inroads
to terror. The Faith conferred upon us by the Holy Qur'an has
the inherent strength to ward off terror from us and to enable
us to strike terror into the enemy. Whatever the form or type of
strategy directed against the enemy, it must, in order to be effective,
be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy. A strategy
that fails to attain this condition suffers from inherent drawbacks
and weaknesses; and should be reviewed and modified. This rule
is fully applicable to nuclear as well as conventional wars. It is
equally true of the strategy of nuclear deterrence in fashion
today. To be credible and effective, the strategy of deterrence
must be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy.


If the first sentence in the quote from page 59 of The Qur'anic Concept of war did not clue you in, you should do the world a favor by removing yourself from the gene pool; you are too stupid to reproduce, much less vote. 

UN Can't Define International Terrorism

While the United Nations pretend to condemn and eliminate international terrorism, they don't know what they are condemning and eliminating.  The United Nations are unable to reach consensus on a definition of international terrorism.   In this post, I will delve into  the divisive issue of defining international terrorism.

    Mr. Yousef Sultan Laram, Deputy Permanent Representative of the State of Qatar to the United Nations raised the issue of definition of terms.

An important step to combat terrorism would be to find a clear and realistic  definition to this phenomenon. In this regard, we must distinguish between terrorism and legitimate resistance movements against foreign occupation.

When Irgun bombed the King David Hotel, was that an act of terrorism or an act of legitimate resistance to foreign occupation?  Was Great Britain occupying Israel or not? Did the Balfour Declaration promise Israel independence in their national homeland or not?

    The Permanent Mission of Kazakhstan on behalf of the OIC Group worded the same concept a bit differently.

We reaffirm our determination to make every effort to reach a consensus agreement on the draft convention, by resolving the outstanding issues including those related to the legal definition of terrorism, particularly on the distinction between terrorism and the struggle for the rights of self-determination by people under foreign occupation, and colonial or alien domination, as well as on the scope of the acts covered by the draft Convention.

    China approaches the issue very carefully, by indirection.

SCO Member States emphasizes that counter-terrorism cooperation should be conducted on the principle of respect for international law including state sovereignty and without any "double standards" .

The "double standards" reference must be to Islam's arrogant implication that  their bloody murders ain't terrorism.  When they blow up an Israeli school bus or a British subway, that ain't terrorism, its "legitimate resistance".  Their arrogance is exposed by two logical fallacies.

    When Irgun bombed the King David Hotel, was that an act of terrorism or an act of legitimate resistance to foreign occupation? No, it was both.  Was Great Britain occupying Israel or not? Did the Balfour Declaration promise Israel independence in their national homeland or not?  The resistance was legitimate, the attack was terrorism. If we accept Islam's definition, the bombing of the King David Hotel was not terrorism.

    Israel is occupied by Arab Muslims, not occupying them. The Levant belongs to Jews, it is their homeland, not the Arab's.  Caliph Umar's conquest in 638 does not confer legitimate title; Israel's recovery of Judea & Samaria as a consequence of Islam's genocidal attack in 1967 conveys legitimate title. 

    Afghanistan is occupied by NATO forces as a consequence of its complicity in the Accursed Abomination. Resistance to that invasion and occupation is not legitimate. 

Un: Eliminating International Terrorism

Eye on the UN published links to three statements to the UN's 6th Committee on the subject of  measures to eliminate international terrorism. This post will concentrate on publishing those links, which appear below.

     In view of the recent 10th anniversary of the Accursed Abomination and several recent foiled plots, the subject absolutely must be moved to the front burner. 

    Instead of republishing each of the statements, I will let you read them, then I will tear them apart point by point in a series of posts.  Here are the links to those pdf files. 

    Those statements contain references to external documents, which, in turn reference others.  So that the inordinately curious may explore the issue in greather depth, I present a list of what I consider to be the most important of those references with the links I was able to find.

CAIR, Awad and Awlaki: Al-Taqiia

Nihad Awad, Executive Director of CAIR, uttered and USA Today  published  remarks about  the life and death of Anwar al-Awkaki.  If you want to read the entire screed, use the link above; I will  use  major points as headings for my  commentary.  Al-Taqiyya is the Islamic practice of self-protection & promotion by active deception. It is based on 3:28 and exemplified by this hadith cited by Tafsir Ibn Kathir: "We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.''.

propagandist for violence and extremism

    Yes, Nihad, we can agree that Awlaki was a propagandist. But he was a propagandist for Islam, which is extremely violent, by design, from 622, when Muhammad's army became strong enough to raid camel caravans returning from foreign trade.

    Before calling me a liar, read the Noble Qur'an: 8:7,  its context and its explanation in Tafsir al-Jalalayn.  The  Battle of Badr was the outcome of Allah's promise of the caravan or the Meccan army. On that day Moe said: "O Allah! I appeal to You (to fulfill) Your Covenant and Promise. O Allah! If Your Will is that none should worship You (then give victory to the pagans)." [Sahih Bukhari5.59.289]  "This is the caravan of Quraysh carrying their property, so march forth to intercept it, Allah might make it as war spoils for you."[Tafsir Ibn Kathir]

Real Muslim scholars refuted his twisted interpretations

    Which Muslim scholars?   Please list them and their credentials. What "twisted interpretations" did they refute and on what scriptural basis?  Nihad Awad I call you out:  provide a list of Awlaki's "twisted interpretations" and their refutations by "real Muslim Scholars" if you are truthful.

 American Muslims condemned

    Specifically which "American Muslims" condemned Awlaki's endorsement of attacking Americans and what are their credentials as Alim & Qadi? What is the scriptural basis of their condemnation of Awlaki's message?

No person shall … be deprived

    What did our army do to traitors in the two World Wars? When an American citizen removes himself to the land of the enemy and advocates his cause, exhorting fellow citizens to wage war against their neighbors so that, in three well known cases they attempt  attacks, one of them successful, what should we do?  Should we sit idly by and let them continue inciting terrorism?  Should we mount an invasion at great cost in treasure and blood, with little chance of success or should we use the best means available to dispatch him with minimal waste and collateral damage? 

order the killing of any American   

    Anwar al-Awlaki was not just any American, he was a traitor, an enemy combatant.  He removed himself from our jurisdiction and he uttered and published calls to wage terror against American citizens, peacefully minding their own affairs at home.  Killing him set no precedent for drone attacks on ordinary citizens, any precedent is applicable only to traitors openly advocating the enemy cause, carrying out jihad by the tongue.

Constitution is rendered meaningless.

    Since when does a Muslim care if our organic law is negated?  Islam holds Allah to be the sole legislator; the Qur'an to be the source of legislation.  33:36. It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. [...]

no-fly or watch lists

    The Magnificent 19 shared a common characteristic; what was it?  Their leader told them, right before the attack, to say something when they attacked; what was it?  What did they say when they slit the throats of the flight crews?  Exactly why did Mohammed Atta direct them to say it?

    Every Muslim should be on the no fly list because there is no way of knowing when they will become true believers and exhibit sudden jihad syndrome. Muslims can not be trusted because they are Allah's slaves, commanded to wage war on the kuffar nearest them.

drone strikes fuel anti-American anger

    Terror attacks are doctrine driven, not anger driven. America was not supporting Israel, neither was it occupying Arab soil when the Barbary Pirates sacked our shipping, resulting in the Barbary Wars. When asked by what right they attacked us, they replied that [...]"that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners"[...][Wikipedia]

war on terror will not be won through force of arms

    There is no war on terror; terror is a tactic, not an enemy. The enemy is the one using terror as a tactic: Islam.   Allah & Moe said things about terror, perhaps you should review those statements. I will make it easy for you by providing links to translations of authentic Islamic texts.
  • 3:151. We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve [Shakir]
  • 8:12I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve [Shakir]
  • 8:57. Therefore, if you overcome them on the battlefield, deal with them very sternly, so as to strike terror among them [Dr. Munir Munshey]
    • then by (routing) them strike terror in those that are behind them per chance they get admonition. [Dr. Kamal Omar]
    • deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them [Pickthall]
  • 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 Allah and your enemies[Yusuf Ali]
  • 33:26.  Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts [Yusuf Ali]
  • 59:2. but Allah came to them whence they did not expect, and cast terror into their hearts [Shakir]
  • 59:13. You are a greater cause of terror in their breasts than Allah! That is because they are people who do not understand.[Aisha Bewley]
  • Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 . Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey. 
  • Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220  I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy),

winning the war on Islam

    There are two possibilities, one is preferable, the other is possible.  The best way is to destroy their faith; to induce mass apostasy.  To whatever extent a Muslim is unimpaired by the deleterious effects of consanguinity  and has not had every vestige of morality destroyed by Islamic brainwashing, he is vulnerable to being shown the truth about Moe, who was a profiteer, not a prophet.

    If our elected traitors really wanted to win, they would document how Moe received his revelations and what he did in implementing them. They would create a full length feature video and distribute it on dvds and by satellite television world wide.  They would multiply the work of Father Zakaria by one million.

    Fortunately, our nation was the first to implement the power of the atom.  We have the means to wipe Islamic nations from the face of the earth, and we will eventually be forced to use it because we won't fight this war the best way.
