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.

Open Letter to the Students and Faculty of West Point

 Ladies and gentlemen:

    Greetings from a citizen 4F & 1Y both unable and disinclined to serve as you are doing or preparing to do.  I am no more than a web warrior, and satisfied with this status.  Thank you for your service to our country. May Almighty God hold you in his protective grip and keep you out of harms way, shield you and make you victorious. 

    Last week, one of your number searched Google for information relating to Muslims lying to non-Muslims.  My guess is that the searcher wanted information about the Islamic doctrine of Al-Taqiyya, but due to the vagaries of the search engine algorithms, was served up my post about a video debate between Pamela Geller and a lying Muslim.  I doubt that my blog post met the searcher's need.

    Al-taqiyya literally means to protect; to prevent harm to the individual Muslim and to Islam. It is derived from Surah Al-Imran 3:28.

3:28. Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Auliyâ (supporters, helpers, etc.) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by Allâh in any way, except if you indeed fear a danger from them. And Allâh warns you against Himself (His Punishment), and to Allâh is the final return.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir has a fairly loquacious explanation of that verse; I will quote a relevant fragment. 
(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]

    Obamination does not want you to have access to that information because it illuminates their treason as well as Shrub's.  We do not have Muslim partners or allies; we have Muslim enemies.  That fact may be fatal to those of you who will be sent to Afghanistan; Obamination does not want you to know it. 

    Training programs for the military, intelligence & security services are being purged of factual information about the enemy.  This means that you must either obtain and read the writings of Robert Spencer & Raymond Ibrahim or delve into the source texts on your own, if you have sufficient time. 

    You should, at minimum read Surahs Al-Anfal & At-Taubah of the Qur'an.  To discover how Muhammad interpreted what he revealed, turn to the authentic hadith collection of Bukhari and read the books of jihad, khumus & expedition.  If you have difficulty understanding the Qur'an or can't take the time to wade through all those sayings, reading Tafsir Ibn Kathir is a good alternative. I will give you the starting points, skip over the Arabic script and use the navigation buttons at the top of each page. 

    Shari'ah or Islamic law is a deep and complex subject and controversial.  Fortunately for you, the laws of jihad which you need to know about are a relatively small part of it.  I want you to read, at a minimum, Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9 from O9.0 through O9.14.  That is the code of the Shafi'i school, the Hanifi school has some differences and also adds some clarity though the type face is antique and the vocabulary is arcane & archaic. Read at minimum the first two pages of Hedaya, Volume II, Book IX, Chapter 1. Read as much more as you have time for and can tolerate. 

    For those who are swamped and need the "Cliff Notes" version: my blog post entitled "What You Need to Know About Islam" contains the two most vital parts of Reliance and an outline containing links to the ayat and ahadith you really need to read.    My post entitled "What's Wrong With Islam & Muslims ?" hits the high points with a bit more detail.

    The experts will tell you to read the Sira & Tahrik. It is possible that "The Life of Muhammad" and Volumes 6-9 of Tabari's History may be in your library, I would bet against it.  I have a secret for you: The "In His Own Words" appendix of "The Prophet of Doom" has the most important quotes from those books along with related ayat & ahadith.
