Are We in the Ninth Year of a Ten-Year Hudna?
American Thinker ^ | 9-26-10 | Marylou Barry

Posted on 09/26/2010 6:44:19 PM PDT by MarylousAmerica

A chill ran through me this month when I realized that September 2010 might be more than just another anniversary of the 2001 savagery. According to Islamic law, 2010 could be the start of the ninth year of a ten-year hudna. So what is a "hudna," and what is so special about the ninth year of an Islamic terror standoff?

A "hudna" is a temporary peace entered into by an Islamic force when it is weaker than its enemy. Its purpose is to buy the Islamic side time to rearm and regroup. But don't think of it as a ceasefire as Westerners understand the concept, because there are fundamental differences.

First, according to Islamic thought, the Muslim side is entitled to break the hudna at any time without giving notice to its adversary. However, the non-Muslim side is entitled to no such change of mind.

Second, ten years is the longest time authorized for a hudna before the Islamic side is obliged to resume making war. And since the last Islamic assault on Washington and New York -- our political and economic capitals, respectively -- we have now passed the nine-year mark.

I don’t see how there could be a temporary cease fire when the fight is ongoing in afghanistan.

B.S. They’ve been trying to hit us again since 9/11. GWB and the CIA foiled several plots over the course of nearly 8 years. Obama got luckey a few times (such as the underwear bomber and the Times Square bomber), and we got unlucky at Ft. Hood and a couple other times.

According to mooselimbs, mooselimbs can doo whatever the eff they want anytime enywhere. Resstrictions only apply to everyone else. So here is what I say:

mohammet was a freak and you are too.
get out and go pound sand
there is a better way
you belong to a sick cult
I will not submit so try and kill me

btw this goes for communists too

“The answer must be that symbolism is more important than reality.

The problem is not that our leaders know nothing about Islamic imperialism, because the information is out there and everyone is educable. The problem is that most of our leaders don’t want to know.”

hmmmm..this reminds me of a book I read shortly after 911. My world, until that day, was one of absolute cluelessness. I remember having arguments with some online friends over the ‘causes’ of their rage after 911...blahblahblah....

Anyway..the one quote of the book that struck my solar plexis was:

‘Realities are not extinguished by the destruction of their symbols’.

One night, I decided to try out that line in an online Islamist chat room just for ‘research’ purposes. Suffice it to say, that Islamists very much believe that realities ARE indeed extinguished by the destruction of their symbols.

It bended their minds very little....but it told me all I needed to know. These were people that were proud of destroying symbols. Ancient symbols(like the buddhas in Afghanistan)..the symbols of the jewish temple wall(foundation)...the symbols of capitalism in the bombing of the first world trade center...our troops in Yemen, etc.

The only remaining queston now is..will we allow them to destroy every symbol of the judai/christian model before we wake up?

From the article:
The problem is not that our leaders know nothing about Islamic imperialism, because the information is out there and everyone is educable. The problem is that most of our leaders don't want to know.

They don't want to know that Islamic imperialists don't see national sovereignty as Westerners do, but that they see only two nations in the world: Dar al Islam (themselves) and Dar al Harb (the rest of the world, which Muslims are instructed to conquer). They don't want to know that Islamic war goes on forever until one side or the other wins, and all our efforts at concession and reconciliation are regarded by the Muslims as weakness. Most of all, they don't want to know that the word "islam" itself means "surrender" in Arabic, not "peace," as has been widely misreported, and that our side is the one that is required to do the surrendering.

This is why I grin inwardly at The Hildabeaste's furious work trying to arrange a "peace" between the Palis and the Israelis. Not gonna happen.

If you want to REALLY know what's going on, download (177 pages) this and read it: http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/p18523.xml

Excellent paper on Sharia law and why we need to stop its spread in our country.

“Well I still say we could end this war in less than 10 minutes if we would just nuke one islamic symbol - Mecca.”

Indeed..and I am convinced that the Bush administration issued just such a scenario to our would be Islamist masters after 911. You are either with us...or you are with the terrorists. How simple can it get? That is the only way to deal with asymetric islamic warfare. Threaten to destroy their effin ‘symbols’ to a glass parking lot.

You have discovered their secret.

They believe we’ll be demoralized by the destruction of such material ‘symbols’ - The World Trade Towers, Statue of Liberty - because material symbols are vitally important to Muslims.

So, would Islam survive the obliteration of Mecca and Qom, whether man caused by a hydrogen bomb, or by an act of God, say a meteorite hit?

Time long has passed when a universal fatwa is to be issued regarding all muslims, no matter who, what or where.

How would their moongod allah explain to the fools why he allowed their sacred sites to be irradiated and molten? :-)

Ditto and I’d add in regarding your last statement, it goes for one-world nutjobs, gun-grabbing libtards, and the de-population freaks - like Bill Gates, Prince Philip, Paul Ehrlich, Obama’s Science Czar John Holdren, etc.

“So, would Islam survive the obliteration of Mecca and Qom, whether man caused by a hydrogen bomb, or by an act of God, say a meteorite hit?”

No..they would not.

Their whole life is caught up in symbolism. Everything is symbolic. A cartoon for cryin out loud unleashes their whole symbolic rage. What use is an atomic bomb if a cartoon can do just as much damage to their collective psyche?

The only thing that these people understand is a ‘strong horse’..one that can kick the shit out of everything they ever thought was true.

That’s the big ‘secret’.

I can’t answer your question, but I will pose one in return:

What “symbol” of Islam must The West destroy to win?
