Ten Arabic Words: A challenge to national security professionals engaged in the Global War On Terror
If you are a politically-correct bliss-ninny with a coexist bumper sticker slapped on the back of your Subaru, and you dont have the slightest clue what the following ten words mean, then this essay is not meant for you. You are excused.
dawah, dhimmi, hijra, jizya, kafir, shaheed, shariah, takfir, taqiyya, ummah
But if you are a national security professional, senior military officer or political leader involved in any aspect of the Global War On Terror, AKA Countering Violent Extremism, these are ten words that should already be a part of your working vocabulary. If you cant readily discuss their meaning, significance, and relationships, then you are worse than a fool, you are disgrace to your office and a danger to your country.
If you dont already have a firm grasp of the meaning of these words, then you are as prepared to conduct the GWOT as President Obamas Pajama Boy is prepared to fight a heavyweight MMA champion in a no-quarter steel-cage death match.
If you couldnt accurately define at least eight out of the ten directly from your personal knowledge base, then as a national security professional, you are an abject failure. You are as dangerously ignorant as a parent who would send his ten-year-old son to a NAMBLA summer camp, because a friendly self-identified Namblan neighbor said it was like Boy Scout Camp, but even more fun, and completely free of charge.
In effect, you sent your innocent and vulnerable young son to a summer camp run by perverts, pedophiles and predators, and you didnt even know it, because you couldnt be bothered to learn the actual meaning of NAMBLA independently from your helpful Namblan neighbor. Sounds insane, doesnt it? Nobody could be that stupid, right? Wrong. That level of stupidity is official Obama administration policy when it comes to fighting the GWOT.
So, if you are an Army general or Navy admiral who, right here and now, without looking at your smart phone, cannot discuss how a kafir becomes a dhimmi, and what a dhimmis rights and options (if any) are under shariah, then you are as ignorant of your job as an European-theater Army general circa 1942 who did not know a panzer from a pancake, or a schutzstaffel from a schnitzel. A person as ignorant as you should be kept away from any responsibility for protecting our nation. You are incompetent, and you are a fool.
If you dont know how to determine when a Muslim suicide bomber is a shaheed and when he is a terrorist according to the shariah, then you are as dangerous to our national safety as a North Atlantic ship captain who believes that icebergs are a fairy tale concocted by conspiracy theorists. Full speed ahead, Captain Smith!
If you dont know takfir from taqiyya, and cant discuss the meaning and importance of both, you are as useless as a WW2 intelligence officer who didnt know the Kriegsmarine from the Luftwaffe, (but who thought that one of them was a private flying club, based on conversations that he overheard among his ever-helpful German cleaning staff).
If you cannot, right now, intelligently discuss the global ummah and its relationship to the OIC in the context of the GWOT, then you should be working for the Department of Parks and Recreation, and not the Department of Homeland Security. If you dont know what the OIC refers to in this context, put on a dunce cap, and go stand in the corner. And if you dont know whether your office is in the Dar al Islam or the Dar al Harb, please jump out of an upper-story window, and when you hit the sidewalk, ask any immigrant who is engaged in hijra. Hell know the answer, even if you do not.
If you dont know how dawah relates to jihad when faithful Muslims are engaged in long-term hijra, you should turn in your official credentials and take early retirement. You are as oblivious as a WW2 U.S. Army general who thought that the Geheime Staatspolizei were German motorcycle policemen much like our American state troopers, because a helpful German passer-by told him so.
If you dont know what the three options are for a kafir who violates the shariah when living in the dar al Islam, then please get out of the national security business. If you dont know why a dhimmi would care about jizya, please retire, and hand your duties over to someone who has the natural curiosity and personal integrity to conduct his own study of our actual enemies and their actual strategies. But in the meantime, you must immediately stop lapping up the false narrative being spoon-fed to you by hostile foreign agents, domestic traitors, useful idiots, and cowards who know betterbut who wont make waves while their pensions are beckoning.
If your job is national security, and you didnt score at least an eighty on the ten-word quiz, then you have obviously swallowed the big lie that we can safely delegate the understanding of our Islamist enemies to the WW2 equivalent of moderate Nazis. Sounds insane, doesnt it? But under President Obama, this is indeed our national policy for fighting the GWOT: allow a range of Muslim Brotherhood front groups to conduct Americas narrowly limited analysis of so-called radicalized Islam, and thereafter guide our policies toward Islam and Muslims in general.
Here is an important example straight from current events. Please tell us, oh national security professional, whom has the United Nations delegated the critical task of selecting and screening the Muslim refugees who are currently arriving in the USA at the rate of thousands per month? Any guesses? It is the same organization that the Obama administration has also optimistically granted the authority to choose our new Muslim refugee immigrants. If you dont know the answer, please get out of the national security business.
So who is it? Its the fifty-seven-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation, headquartered in Saudi Arabia, which I referenced above. The mission of the OIC is to promote the spread of Islam across the globe until there is no more dar al harb, and all of the kafirs have either been converted to Islam, killed, or forced into submission as dhimmis. If you didnt know, dhimmis are formally and legally subjugated second-class citizens who must pay the special jizya tax as the price of their being allowed to live under shariah in the ummah.
But this special offer is only extended to Christians and Jews: all others must choose between conversion to Islam, and the sword. That is, if their Muslim conquerors grant them the option of conversion. According to the Shariah, the defeated kafirs may also be killed or enslaved, if either of these two outcomes would be considered more beneficial to the ummah, based on local conditions and needs. (Of course, the captured women and girls may be taken as sex-slaves.) Mohammed did all of the above, and he commanded that these practices be continued in perpetuity, and they are.
The charter of the OIC puts Islamic shariah law ahead of secular law. This means, for example, that the official position of the OIC is that Muslims who leave the faith should be killed, and that any faithful Muslim who kills an apostate ex-Muslim has done no sin, but instead should be thanked and congratulated for the deed. Its the same with adulterers: they should die, and killing an adulterer is no crime.
Yes, that really is their position, and they really do believe it, and much more than that. The OIC is made up of fifty-seven Muslim nations, united by a common belief in the supremacy of Islam, and their mutual obligation to conduct both dawah and jihad until the Dar al Islam covers the globe, and Allahs eternal and immutable shariah has supplanted godless democracy and all manmade laws. This dawah includes the practice of using taqiyya when making arrangements or having negotiations with as-yet unsubmitted kafirs in the dar al harb.
So its no wonder that ninety-nine percent of the refugees being screened by the OIC and transported into the USA are Muslim, even though the Christians and other non-Muslims (who until recently made up over ten percent of the populations of Syria and Iraq) are suffering a brutal genocide and holocaust at the hands of Islamic State kidnappers, mass-rapists and mass-executioners.
The same OIC which is choosing our Muslim refugees is also strong-arming the European Union, the United States and the United Nations into accepting shariah-compliant religious blasphemy laws, which will turn criticism of Islam into illegal hate speech. Its worth noting that Bill and Hillary Clinton have collected millions of dollars in speaking fees and donations from OIC members, and perhaps unremarkably, Hillary Clinton also supports outlawing criticism of Islam, if the criticism leads to violence by Muslims.
In light of this, its particularly sad to see disgraced former General David Petraeus heap even more shame upon himself, with his recent call for a mindless capitulation to Islamic extortion threats, extortion threats which have been ongoing against kafirs for 1,400 years. With fourteen centuries of history to examine, Dont make the Muslims angry, or theyll run amok like uncontrollable sub-human savages, and kill lots of innocent people is a wretched strategy for a former American general and intelligence agency director to espouse.
His call for the end of free speech rights anywhere and anytime that they offend Muslims is no different than warning a beaten wife not to anger her chronically abusive husband again, lest he give her yet another violent thrashingwhich would then be entirely her fault. In fact, she should be punished again, just for provoking him after being warned not to!
This is not merely the hecklers veto, which we are, sadly, familiar with today on the American college campus. This is the Muslim terrorists veto, and it means forced submission to Islams shariah law as the price of temporarily forestalling Muslim violence. Shame on David Petraeus for siding with the perpetrators of Islamic terrorism, and not the victims. But at least his motives are transparent: pure greed. Petraeus, who has no background in finance or economics, is making millions of dollars by hustling in Muslim nations for the multi-billion-dollar global hedge fund KKR. They want something for their money, and he gave it to them in his recent Washington Post column. (Read Why David Petraeus really wants you to shut up about Islamism, TheFederalist.com, May 18, 2016.)
Let me offer you another simple test that you may apply to your own national security work space and mission. If you have been ordered to purge the ten listed Arabic words (and others) from your official GWOT lexicon, and instead to hand over the task of analyzing Islamic radicalism to alleged moderate Muslims, then you are being played for a fool by our nations most implacable and devious enemies, both foreign and domestic.
Fifteen years after the twin towers came down, you have no excuse for such obliviousness. After the next 9-11, you will not be able to plead ignorance yet again. As a national security official, you have a duty to perform your own due diligence. You must educate yourself, and reject the politically-correct blindfold that you have been ordered to wrap around your own mind.
Sun Tzu wrote: if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.
Today, we are literally outsourcing our intelligence analysis in the GWOT to the OIC and various Muslim Brotherhood front groups. Simply do a search for Holy Land Foundation, Hamas, CAIR, and FBI to begin your overdue education. Is it any wonder that the official Countering Violent Extremism narrative holds that there is utterly no connection between Islamic terrorism and Islam? That the Islamic State, which quotes chapter and verse of the Koran as justification for its every decision, is not Islamic? That Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Caliph of ISIS, who holds a PhD in Islamic Studies from the Islamic University of Baghdad, knows less about Islam than President Obama and his American-trained national security staff?
In 2016, ignorance of the reality of the Islamist threat is no longer an excuse. Many resources are readily available if you are willing to look unblinkingly at the light of truth. I would suggest the online video lectures given by Stephen Coughlin and Dr. Bill Warner as starting points. Those who need or desire to read an exhaustively researched (over a thousand footnotes) academic treatise on the present Islamist threat should carefully study Coughlins Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad.
After 9-11, Mr. Coughlin was an acclaimed subject matter expert and frequent high-level lecturer at the CIA, the FBI, and the Pentagon, until 2008 when he was made persona-non-grata on federal property as an unwelcome Islamophobe. And who made the determination of Mr. Coughlins Islamophobia? The same Muslim Brotherhood front groups that our intelligence agencies now rely upon for their understanding of violent extremism, which, of course, we are assured has absolutely nothing to do with Islam.
We know this must be true, because President Obama has told us so. Unless, of course, he is practicing taqiyya on behalf of the ummah. Taqiyya is a bedrock principle of Islamic shariah, a ready tool for Muslims to use when they are dealing with kafirs. And not only radical Muslims, but ordinary, everyday, moderate Muslims. According to the shariah, its not a sin when a Muslim lies to a kafir in order to promote Islam. In that case, taqiyya is just a very clever form of dawah, helping to prepare the kafirs for the final Islamic jihad victory.
Now, go look up the Arabic words that you didnt know, and read the article again, with fuller understanding. Then, go ask your colleagues how they did on the quiz. In the current threat environment, when mistakes are punished with passenger jets falling out of the sky, seventy is a failing grade for a trained and educated national security professional.
Please strive to do better. Your country is depending on you. Dont let us down again. Educate yourself, and then prepare to stand firm against the prevailing winds of political correctness. Orwell said, In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. Remember your core values, and stand tall against Americas enemies, both foreign and domestic.
There will be a reckoning, after the next mega-9-11, with the traitors and moles who have deliberately blindfolded and crippled our intelligence services.

Link to Dr. Bill Warner videos on the history of Islamic jihad.
The correct answer would be “no”.
Go to any college teaching “Cyber Security” as a degree program and look at the millennials in the program. They are lost sheep. TV watching Pajama boys that think “Scorpion” is reality TV. They’d sell out their country and neighbors just for the pat on the head for doing so.
People who claim islam is a religion of peace haven’t a clue about any of those words.
Good stuff, thanks for the ping.
6 out of 10....... my bad.
Pajama boy is arrogant. They really do believe they know everything because google lets them look things up. They have no skills outside of the effeminate knowledge their liberal friends allow them to have.
6 for Me too.
Anyone claiming that there are moderate muslims fits one of the following categories;
Ignorant bliss (hasn’t informed themselves)
A fool (refuses to inform themselves)
A Tool (sold out)
A Benedict Arnold
DANG AUTO CORRECT.....:O)
Aloha Snackbar back at ya !!
Love it! I have been saying this about Betrayus for years. Americans in general have no idea how these past decades have corrupted the military and DoD. Our leaders have graduated from working with Islamic despots to become their dhimmi consorts.
I would love to see the meat edited down to business-card sized. I’m pretty sure they could be dropped inadvertently around key installations.
Maybe Trump can ask Hillary to explain these words in the first debate... We know mods (*who get their questions from democrat operatives - in folders marked "questions to make moderators look smart") will NOT ask Hillary. Gives Trump a nice opportunity
