Skip to comments.Radical Muslims, Environmentalists, and the Green Jihad

Rep. Keith Ellison, the Muslim Congressman from Minnesota who shed tears in protest over the congressional hearings on the growing radicalization of Muslims in the U.S., wrote the foreword to a book entitled Green Deen: What Islam Teaches about Protecting the Planet. In Arabic, deen means religious creed. The author of Green Deen is Ibrahim Abdul Matin. He wrote his book to demonstrate that there is a close relationship between Islam and modern environmentalism.
It turns out Ellison would have been a good witness to how Muslims are being radicalized as foot solders not only for global Jihad but for a green future. It is an unholy alliance that threatens our future but which escapes the attention of media predisposed to believe that radical Muslims working with environmentalists could only produce positive results.
What is fascinating is that Matin works in New York City Mayor Michael Bloombergs environmental planning department as a policy advisor for New York Citys long term sustainability, and was one of the Muslims promoting the idea that the new mosque being considered near Ground Zero ...

7th Century Earth had no cars or industrial smoke-stacks but “the religion of peace” wants us all thrust back to that time. Yes, Islam promotes a “green” civilization.
Yes, that kind of world is much easier to control and stay on top of.
You’ll have a hard time convincing me that Islam is green. Islam is about power.
The over-grazing of the Sahara, too, because of the adulation of the nomadic grazing lifestyle is also overwhelmingly Muslim cause. Same problem for the Middle East deserts and Central Asian ones - the marginal areas saw native Christian and Zoroastrian farmers killed, Muslim migratory herders moving in.
Yes, of course you are absolutely right. However, I am not sure that the Green Movement is really about being green either. Their lust for power is just as great as any Marxist or Muslim.
Please see response no. 6.
I stand corrected, see post number 7!
The Green Movement has been co-opted, and is heavily allied with the Marxists. That said, there are a lot of airy-fairy well intentioned useful green idiots. The Muslims and the self-declared Marxists are a lot more serious than your average tree-hugger. That's not to say that there aren't fanatic eco-terrorists, of course. Put differently, there are a lot of greenish idiots along for the ride, but there aren't too many "Muslim-ish" Islamists.
The idea that the green movement is made up of a bunch of pushover sissies is actually a misnomer. Environmentalism has its roots in German Romanticism which blew up into Nazism in the 1930’s. Furthermore, when Marxists became green, they are showing themselves moving over to fascism. Fascism is based on nature (see Daniel Gasman’s works on this). Marxism is based on humanism. Many in Germany moved away from Marxism to fascism in the early 20th century.
