The 'peaceful' Jihad in America
NY Post ^ | June 1, 2010 | ANDREW C. McCARTHY

Posted on 06/01/2010 4:08:06 AM PDT by Scanian

Most Americans don't realize that jihad is about much more than terrorism.

Even the terrorists don't blow up buildings for the sake of blowing up buildings. There is method in their madness.

Jihad is not mindless mass-murder, nor is it a syrupy "internal struggle to become a better person." No, jihad is the mission to establish and spread sharia.

The installation of Allah's law, believed by Muslims to be a divine injunction, is the necessary precondition to the creation of Islamic societies. While it can, and often is, waged forcibly, Islamists don't resort to violence (or, at least, to more violence) where surrenders, appeasements and capitulations are available.

And al Qaeda is merely an offshoot of the central Islamist group, the Muslim Brotherhood, or Hizb al-Ikhwan al-Muslimin. Founded in 1928, the Ikhwan's motto to this day remains, "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."

The first step in this ‘idealogical war’ is to call our enemy by their real name. Not terrorists, not Muslims, but Islamo Fascists. If people in the Muslim faith don’t like it, I don’t care. It is the Muslim faith that has been hijacked by these Islamo Fascists. Get mad at them, not us for calling it by it’s correct name.

This is something we Americans need to wake up to before it’s too late.

As I’ve been saying for some time, Bush did us no favors with his “peaceful, friendly religion” nonsense.

Oh, and it’s not a hijack. It’s written doctrine backed up by 1200+ years of practice. The West used to understand this, but our knowledge of history is so poor it has been largely forgotten.

Islam is not just a false religion, it is a sedetious political idealogy that should be banned in the US.

No, Islam has not been “Hijacked” it is what it is and has always been .

The Koran orders this and honest Muslims will admit it

Ask the Christians and others that have had to live under it..

"Oh, and it’s not a hijack."

There are a lot of Muslims on our side who want to see this crap wiped out. Nonie Darwish, Wafa Sultan, Walid Shoebat, the whole Iraqi Kurd people.

Sick people have used the Christian bible to do unspeakable harm throughout history. We can't paint all Muslims with this brush, though it is far too many we do have to paint with this brush. A lot don't speak out because they are afraid.

Don’t know if either of you have seen the DVD documentary Obsession. It tells of the Islamo fascists indoctrination and ideaology. It is largely told by Muslims.

While there are moderate Muslims, history shows us there is no moderate Islam.

As Ann Coulter observed early on after 9/11, there were a lot of “good Germans” as well, under the Nazis.

Until the moderate Muslims feel more pain from allowing the Islamists to live in the midst than they currently do, they have no reason to change and be forced to deal with the problem.

"there were a lot of “good Germans” as well, under the Nazis."

I'll say one thing, there was no German living in England who wrote a book like Salman Rushdie and has to go in hiding for the rest of his life. You are never going to have the masses of any society speak out. You need leaders to persuade them. You do realize that during our own revolution, the vast majority of the colonists were either indifferent to the outcome or wanted to stay a part of England. Change is hard. Give a little praise to the Muslim leaders that are standing up and trying to change this. Don't paint them with the same brush.

Islam can wage ‘peaceful Jihad’ on the US because the left does most of Islams dirty work in the name of multiculturalism.

I wish I could find the article I read this weekend that talked about the “Red-Green” alliance.

Horowitz has a monograph on the topic:

Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Absolutely!

And...We should also call the liberal “left” what it is: Marxism and communism.

The U.S. is facing two threats: Marxism and Islamo-fascism.

At the moment internal Marxism is our nation's **most** urgent and serious threat. It is playing on center stage. Islamo-fascism is waiting in the green room.

The **only** possible way to fight both of these threats is to have a population of citizens that are thoroughly philosophically rooted in, and capable of intellectually and spiritually defending, the Judeo Christian values upon which our nation was built.

Yet...We send 85% of our nation's children into godless government schools that teach a curriculum that is utterly scrubbed clean of any references to God. In essence, our nation's children are being taught to think godlessly.

At its very best, in the mid-1800s children in government schools were subjected to a lukewarm and generic Protestantism. ( We know what Christ does with the lukewarm.) By my grandmother and father's era, our nation's children were subjected to a secular curriculum with a sprinkle of prayer in the morning. Thankfully, their Christian teachers helped soften this godless curriculum somewhat. But..Now our children are being taught by hard-core Marxists.

Honestly...I believe as a nation we doomed.

Hopefully, conservatives will wake up in time to realize that socialist government schooling can not be reformed. We must get our nation's children into private conservative schools that will thoroughly integrate Judeo-Christian principles and our nation's founding values into the very woof and warp of every minute of their school day.

Hopefully...It is not too late.

This sabotage is also taking place at the very top of our government by elected “leaders”.

That’s fine except that what you call fascism and a highjacking of Islam is in fact not only recommended by the Koran, it is REQUIRED. Take a few minutes and investigate a couple of the websites dedicated to exposing the violence and hatred of the Koran and the “Holy Hadiths” — you might find it eye-opening.

The trick of couching extreme politics in religion is a very, very old one and Mo the Profit was best at it.
