Ten Arabic Words: Brackenís Challenge to National Security Professionals
Gates of Vienna ^ | May 20, 2016 | Matthew Bracken

Posted on 05/23/2016 7:18:54 AM PDT by Ray76

If you are a politically-correct bliss-ninny with a coexist bumper sticker slapped on the back of your Subaru, and you don’t 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 can’t 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 couldn’t 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 didn’t even know it, because you couldn’t be bothered to learn the actual meaning of NAMBLA independently from your helpful Namblan neighbor. Sounds insane, doesn’t it? Nobody could be that stupid, right? Wrong. That level of stupidity is official Obama administration policy when it comes to fighting the GWOT.

Radical Muslims want to kill you.

Moderate Muslims want the radical Muslims to kill you.

Questions?

Not only should you be able to define them, but you should be able to draw social and historical parallels with the Third Reich and the Islamic code.
Then perhaps you can explain to your colleagues why Islam, when followed by the book(s), is so dangerous...

Ping.

This one seems to have gotten more re-posting than your others ... to the best of my recollection.

This article alone could form the basis for a course of study in high school - in some other reality, I know sadly.

Here’s a few arabic words:

This kafir refuses to be a dhimmy and wants no part of shitria. You can shove your jizya up your shaheed,
you can take a hijra on your ummah.

Shaheed is the name of my state’s Governor. Should I be worried?
