Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Open Letter To Rick Santorum


Dear Mr. Santorum,

Your answer to a question about national security issues involving
Afghanistan  exposes a vital element of truth on the surface,
while an unpleasant stream of hypocrisy flows beneath the
surface.

Thanks and a tip of the hat to Paul Hoffman, whose
Facebook post brought to my attention Robert Spencer’s post, where I found this video
clip.

How
long

do you want to wait?  Until the security of our country is
ensured, that’s what the job of the commander of chief is and you make
that decision, not the generals–you make that decision based on an
analysis of how virulent the
threat of radical Islam
is and you confront that threat not just militarily, and importantly,
not just militarily, you
confront it first by being honest
with the
American public
about what this threat is.

This President has sanitized every defense document,
everything, the word radical Islam does not appear anywhere , why?
because we are fighting political correct — we are trying to fight
this politically correct war
and not being honest with the American
public as to who the enemy is, how virulently they are and why they
hate us and what we must do to stop…

 

how long ?

The question of the duration of our occupation of
Afghanistan can not be answered with a clock, calendar or time
table.

strategic objectives

national security

If the strategic objective is to permanently
end  Afghanistan’s membership in the set of state sponsors of
terrorism and prevent Afghanistan from being used as a training ground
and staging area for terrorists, then the eradication of Islam from
Afghanistan is the criteria for ending the occupation. We bring the
troops home when the population of Afghanistan and their government are
totally free from the influence of the damnable doctrines of Islam
which inculcate hatred and enjoin genocidal conquest which is won by
casting terror.

In that case, you remove our troops from Afghanistan
when its population is either apostatized or converted and its
government is able and willing to secure its borders
against infiltration from neighboring countries infested with
Muslims.

free, democratic & secure

If the strategic objective is, as Shrub stated, a
free, democratic, secure & prosperous Afghanistan with a stable
government which respects human equality, dignity & rights,
then cleansing Afghanistan from the infestation of Islam  is
insufficient.  In this case, Afghanistan must be cleansed from its
long tradition of tribalism and its honor/shame culture as well.
Good luck with that; measure the occupation in millenia, not
centuries.

how virulent

how infectious

Islam spread from Mecca & Medina to infect all
of Arabia, North Africa, the Levant, nearly half of Asia and South East
Europe in a few centuries. Infected persons now infest Western Europe
and America and are spreading the infection through our prisons and
inner cities.

how malignant

It is impossible to count with accuracy, the many
innocent victims of Islam, but the best estimate runs to 270 million.

radical Islam

radical Englishmen

Were the founders fighting ‘radical’ Englishmen in
the Revolution against King George or were they fighting his army?

radical Nazis

Was the greatest generation in combat against
‘radical’ Nazis ?  Were those ‘radicals’ a tiny minority of Nazis?
Was there a peaceful majority of Nazis who did not want to participate
in world conquest?

radical Communism

Did millions die of starvation at the hands of
Stalin, Mao & Pot because of an extraordinary, ‘radical’ variant of
International Communism?  Was the Cold War fought against ‘radcal’
Communism or the real thing?

radical Muslims

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to
relive it. I quote from Wikipedia’s entry on the First
Barbary War
:  “On
October 11, 1784, Moroccan pirates seized the brigantine 
Betsey.[2]   “Algeria
began piracy against the U.S. on July 25, 1785 with the capture of the
schooner 
Maria and the Dauphin a week later.[5]

Where the Barbary Pirates ‘radicals’, ‘perverting’,
‘distorting’ and ‘twisting’ normative Islamic doctrine into a perverted
form, or were they acting in obedience to Allah; emulating their
Prophet?  Thomas Jefferson and John Adams put the question to
Tripoli’s Ambassador in 1785. His reply is a clue for you.

It
was written in
their Koran
, that all nations which had not acknowledged the
Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of
the faithful to plunder and enslave;
and that every mussulman
who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise.
He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one
slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck
of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third
in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into
the foe
that they cried out for quarter at once. 
[12]

Koran

Is that true? Is it really written in their Koran
that they have a right and duty to plunder and enslave?

right & duty

2:216.
Jihâd (holy
fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you
(Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing
which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you.
Allâh knows but you do not know.

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.

Ordained means it is Allah’s law. “fight until” makes the statements
imperative.  The Koran commands Muslims to wage perpetual war
against disbelievers.

plunder

8:1.
They ask you (O Muhammad ) about the spoils of war.
Say: “The spoils
are for Allâh and the Messenger
.”
So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey
Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), if you are believers.

8:41.
And know that whatever
of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is
assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger
,
and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also)
the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have
believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad
) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the
two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allâh is Able to do all
things.

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
. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

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.

48:19.
And abundant spoils
that they will capture. And Allâh is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise.

Isn’t that special: the Koran has rules for
distribution of spoils, in anticipation of offensive warfare.  Moe
got the top 205, first pick of the spoils.  And as a Prophet, Moe
was not allowed to ransom prisoners until he had made great slaughter.
We learned that Moe’s motivation was mercenary and Allah’s is blood
lust.

Moe besieged a local Jewish settlement, overcame
them with terrorism and seized their property, enslaving their widows
& orphans.  Allah promised the Muslims “abundant spoils”.

Paradise

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.

48:17.
No blame or sin is there upon the blind, nor is there blame or sin upon
the lame, nor is there blame or sin upon the sick (that they go not
forth to war). And whosoever
obeys Allâh and His Messenger
(Muhammad ), He will admit him to
Gardens beneath which rivers flow
(Paradise); and whosoever turns back, He
will punish him with a painful torment
.

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.

If Muslims do  not join the jihad, they will go
to Hell;
if the fight, they will go to  There is a long and esoteric hadith
about Umar’s sending the army to fight the great nations, in which a
Muslim General is quoted as explaining things to a Persian General in
similar terms.   Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386

Our Prophet, the
Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you
till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya
(i.e. tribute); and
our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us
is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise
to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us
remain alive, shall become your master
.”

.

“Its Islam, stupid!”

What Allah commanded and Moe exemplified is
Islam, the real thing, not a distortion, twisting or perversion of
Islam. There is no such thing as radical Islam.  Islam is what Moe
preached & practiced, not the anodyne, passive & benevolent
religion you wish it would be.

not just militarily

Islam can not be defeated militarily short of
wholesale extermination.  If you are unable or unwilling to kill
every Muslim on the face of the earth, then you must break their faith, you must induce mass
apostasy.

expose Allah

Effectively combating Islam requires inducing mass
apostasy by introducing the Ummah to the reality of Allah and his
Messenger, their true character and works.  You must effectively
discredit Moe, and thereby descredit Allah. You must expose the fallacy
of Allah’s promises.

war of ideas

If you would win this war, list the ideas of Islam
and the ideas of Western Civilization and prove our ideas to be
superior to theirs, in intrinsic merit as well as empirical results.

honest about the threat

When you add adjectives or modifiers to the name of
the enemy, you are not being honest.  The enemy is Islam, not
‘radical Islam’. In the long run, the threat is existential; Islam is
Hellbent on global conquest.  In the short run, the threat is
continued and escalating attacks, large and small, against civilian
targets.  Once Iran obtains a nuke and couples it with a delivery
system, our cities will be in grave danger.

politically correct

President Bush called Islam a “great religion of
peace” because he knew that, if the public knew the truth, there would
be a massive popular demand for the eradication of the
enemy.   President Obama repeats the same lie and declares
that we are not at war against Islam because he is a traitor, one of
them, not one of us.

sanitized

President Obama has removed all reference to the
false meme which has been substituted for the name of the enemy because
he is politically correct, not factually correct.

In order to win, we need to identify and truthfully
describe the enemy, its intentions and capacity. The traitor in the
White House has no desire to defeat the enemy because he is one of
them, at the head of the enemy’s fifth column.
Removing all acknowledgment of the nexus between Islamic doctrine and
terrorism is in compliance with the demands of Islam and the United
Nations.

the enemy

Islam, as revealed & exemplified by Moe.

virulence

Islam demands that only Allah be worshiped, “alltogether and everywhere“. Allah demands “great slaughter“. The gates of Paradise will not
swing open to Muslims until they exterminate the Jews.

why they
hate us

Because we are not Muslims. Disbelief is a status
offense, called Kufr: rebellion against Allah, the punishment for which
is described in 5:33
and the definition of which is found in Tafsir Ibn Kathir.

what we must do

Either cause Muslims to quit believing in Allah, his
threat & promise, breaking his yoke of slavery or cause them to
quit living.  That should be an easy choice.

I want you to:

Take your own advice, be honest about the identity
of the enemy, its character, ability & intentions and what we must
do to win this war and restore peace 7 security. First and foremost:
quit adding adjectives to the name of the enemy.

Ignorant Comment Answered


One  reader comment appended to a New York Times article about the  Times Square bomber deserves a detailed reply.   The article included a photograph of the bomber’s copy of the Noble Qur’an.  That translation is available on the web,  it can be downloaded in pdf format. The chm  version is more than 29mb, I don’t know the size of the pdf version.  If you don’t want to clutter up your hard disk, you can read it on line at the King Fahd Complex.  The Hilali & Khan translation  does contain parenthetical  expressions from tafsir to clarify ambiguous verses. It also includes the translator’s  commentary. The link to the on line version is to 2:190, which is about defensive jihad, but the translator’s comment defines offensive jihad with extreme clarity and accuracy.

It is important to note that this book is not the Koran, but “The Noble Koran”, which is a version of the Koran with commentary woven into the text. It is widely distributed by Wahabis and extremists in the U.S. Its intention is to distort the Koran and spread an extremist view of Islam. This book does not represent the beliefs of hundreds of millions of Muslims, and we should not make them the enemy.

Muslims consider all translations  of the Qur’an to be non-canonical.  They assert that it is impossible to translate it from Arabic to another language without sacrificing accuracy.

The true meaning of the Qur’an can only be discovered by observing how  the man who revealed it followed its dictates.  The experts who explain the Qur’an in tafsir compare parallel verses and hadith to determine their meaning.

The comment author asserts that the Noble Qur’an is intended to distort the Qur’an with an extreme slant.  The assertion is offered without evidence to prove it.

The assertion can be tested by comparing multiple translations. http://www.quranbrowser.com/ displays a table of ten parallel translations.  http://www.openburhan.net displays  17 translations including a literal translation and a word by word breakdown of the Arabic text  linked to an Arabic/English dictionary.

The ayat most significant to the jihad issue are  2:216, 8:39, 8:60 & 9:29.  When you compare the translations, you will discover that the main difference is that Hilali & Khan tried to modernize 8:60 by inserting a parenthetical list of modern weapons.

The titles of Ibn Kathir’s explanations of 8:39 & 9:29 make  their meanings extremely obvious:

The jihad imperatives are confirmed in this hadith:  Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387.  Allah said “fight them”; Moe said “I have been ordered to fight”.  The ultimate confirmation is found in Shari’ah. Reliance of the Traveller,  Book O, Chapter 9 tells us what the caliph does as a normal course of action.

  • O9.8 The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice,…
  • O9.9 The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim…

The Qur’an may not represent the beliefs of hundreds of millions of Muslims, but it sets the standard of conduct for more than a billion Muslims.  It commands them to wage war against us.  Why did Muslims march from Mecca to conquer the Arabian peninsula, North Africa, Southern & Eastern Europe and nearly half of Asia?

The issue is not moderate :  extremist, it is hypocrite : believer.   The hypocrite’s Islam “will not go beyond their throats“.  Believers are only those who “strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allâh“. What does that mean?  The answer is in 9:111.

  • 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 .

Got a clue yet?  “They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed.”  I have two more ayat for the terminally clueless.

  • 4:57. But those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) and do deeds of righteousness, We shall admit them to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), abiding therein forever. …
  • 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.  …

Angering and injuring disbelievers  are deeds of righteousness.  Re-read 9:120 , paying close attention to the clause I emphasized with bold face.

Islam is the enemy.  Without Muslims who believe in it and attempt to implement it, Islam would be harmless words in musty old books.  But so long as there are Muslims, the risk remains that some of them will believe in and attempt to implement Allah’s jihad imperatives.

Tokens of Treason


In remarks prepared for delivery to the Wilson Center August 1, 2007, then Senator Obama expressed ideas which can only result from extreme ignorance or treason.  I became aware of this speech through a quote in a Los Angeles Times opinion article by Jack Miles.

In that speech, Senator Obama expressed his intention to address a major Islamic forum  “to redefine our struggle“.  Jack Miles indicates that the speech is to be delivered to the Turkish Parliament Monday, April 6, 2009.

When President Obama addresses the Turkish parliament on Monday, he will have the chance to fulfill a campaign promise. Before the secular legislature of a Muslim-majority country — and with the entire Muslim ummahummah listening — he can state plainly that the United States is not at war with Islam.

I have selected some of the most egregious idiocies from the prepared text, including them here ( in block quotes) differentiated from my comments by  font style.

[]We did not develop new capabilities to defeat a new enemy or launch a comprehensive strategy to dry up the terrorists’ base of support.[]

There is no new enemy; we are assailed by an old enemy, one which attacked our commercial shipping in the 18th century: Islam. When Thomas Jefferson and John Adams asked  Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman by what right the Barbary Pirates attacked our ships, he gave them a clear answer, one which should be taken to heart by our present leaders.

The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), 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, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven. [Wikipedia]

Their “right and duty” to attack us is written in the Koran.  Who will bother to read 8:39, 8:60, 9:29 and 9:123?  Not our President, neither our legislators, nor  our military officers; they can’t be bothered with reality, preferring to live in fantasy land.

The “terrorists’ base of support” is the Ummah al-Islamiya, ordinary Muslims who contribute Zakat toward their support. Those who stay at home are required to contribute to the support of the Mujahideen at the front.

[]Just because the President misrepresents our enemies does not mean we do not have them. The terrorists are at war with us. The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims, but the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.[]

Presidents Carter, Clinton Bush & Obama all misrepresented our enemy, claiming that we are assailed by a “tiny minority of extremists” motivated by legitimate grievances.  Islam is the enemy, driven by immutable intrinsic doctrines enshrined in the Koran and exemplified in Moe’s sunna. Casting terror into the hearts of Islam’s enemies is an intrinsic sacrament, clearly established by 3:151, 8:128:60, 33:26 & 59:2 and confirmed by Bukhari 4.52.220 & 1.7.331.

Islam is at war with us, and all non-Muslims not under a treaty of protection imposed upon victims of Islamic intimidation and conquest. The war is dictated by Allah’s commands in 8:39 & 9:29, which Moe confirmed in Bukhari 1.8.387, saying “I have been ordered to fight”. It is Shari’ah, codified in Umdat as-Salik O9.8.

The “terrorists” do not “distort Islam”; they obey Allah who ordered them to “strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemiesand emulate Moe, who said “I have been made victorious with terror“. Islam is fighting against us, and we should be fighting to secure life & liberty.
.

[]But America must be about more than taking out terrorists and locking up weapons, or else new terrorists will rise up to take the place of every one we capture or kill. That is why the third step in my strategy will be drying up the rising well of support for extremism.[]

“Extremism” is a shibboleth which must be exposed.  The founder of Islam bragged about winning with terror. Allah commanded it, Moe exemplified it: it is the standard, unexceptional. Terrorism’s well of support is the Koran, its support flows through the family, Mosque and every structure of Islamic society.

[]We know where extremists thrive. In conflict zones that are incubators of resentment and anarchy. In weak states that cannot control their borders or territory, or meet the basic needs of their people. From Africa to central Asia to the Pacific Rim – nearly 60 countries stand on the brink of conflict or collapse. The extremists encourage the exploitation of these hopeless places on their hate-filled websites.[]

That paragraph alludes to and reinforces another shibboleth: “terrorism is grievance driven”.  Numerous splodydopes were from middle and upper class families, students of law & medicine, with promising careers in prospect. They chose to end their lives in an effort to kill Kufar, please Allah and gain admission to the Celestial Bordello.

Their “hate-filled websites” reflect the contents of their hate-filled Koran, hadith & Shari’ah.  Those Muslims are not hopeless, they hope to conquer and dominate the entire world, as Allah promised they will.

[]America is at war with terrorists who killed on our soil. We are not at war with Islam. America is a compassionate nation that wants a better future for all people. The vast majority of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims have no use for bin Ladin or his bankrupt ideas. But too often since 9/11, the extremists have defined us, not the other way around.[]

Islam is at war against us, a war declared in 623 and re-affirmed in 20012002 and  2003.  If they had no use for “bankrupt ideas” of world conquest, they would be Apostates, not Muslims.

[]As President, I will lead this effort. In the first 100 days of my Administration, I will travel to a major Islamic forum and deliver an address to redefine our struggle. I will make clear that we are not at war with Islam, that we will stand with those who are willing to stand up for their future, and that we need their effort to defeat the prophets of hate and violence. I will speak directly to that child who looks up at that helicopter, and my message will be clear: “You matter to us. Your future is our future. And our moment is now.”[]

Their future, promised by Allah, is total world conquest and domination.  The Prophet of “hate and violence” was Moe, who revealed Allah’s conquest, genocide & terror imperatives.   “Your future is our future. And our moment is now.”   President Barack Hussein Obama is one of them. You fools, what have you done!
