Bringing the War Back Home?
Asharq Al-Awsat ^ | January 27, 2014 | By Adhwan Alahmari

LONDON--More than 2,000 Muslims from the United States and Europe have joined armed groups fighting in Syria, an increase from 440 such fighters at the end of 2011. Despite that 355 percent increase, foreign fighters from the West still represent no more than 11 percent of non-Syrians fighting against the regime of President Bashar Al-Assad, though their presence in Syria is the cause for a great deal of concern on the part of governments in Europe and elsewhere.

According to a report published recently by King’s College London’s International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, the number of non-Syrian fighters in the country has reached 11,000. The report, which is based on more than 1,500 sources, says those 2,000 Western fighters include 412 from France, 366 from the United Kingdom, 296 from Belgium and 240 from Germany. There are also thought to be one Swiss citizen and one Luxembourg national fighting in the country. In total, combatants holding 73 nationalities, including 15 Europeans, are thought to have travelled to Syria to fight. (The government of embattled President Bashar Al-Assad puts the number of nationalities slightly higher, at 80 or more.)

Bringing the war home?

Obama did the same in Kenya in 2006/2007. as a sitting Senator he violated the Logan Act, but was never prosecuted because he supported Rial Odinga and his ( fascist) Freedom Fighters of the Orange Party, dedicated to restoration of statist Islam and sharia law inthe Northeastern districts of Kenya, adjacent to Somalia, the home area of the Obama clan, just north pof Mombassa in the Kikambala area.

Its cool to be an Obama Freedom Fighter, and if you go to fgight in Syria, all you are doing is following in the steps of Earnest Hemingway! ( But Hemingway fought against fascism and was not a fascist?.)

Allowing US citizens to fight in foreign , religio-fascist militaries will work to destroy the USA. They will eventually come home to the continental USA to wreck destruction here.

Yes they will, and the Obungler will welcome them home, to do their dirty work.

And now we an understand Obamas drive to increase gun control.

I think that the ban on fully automatic weapons for civilian use should be lifted.

Repeal The National Firearms Act of 1934 and The National Firearms Act of 1968 ! I want to have fully automatic weapos just like the ones these Islamofascist a$$hats will be bringing home under the Obama refusal to enforce federal law and protect the USA from Muslim conquest.

In Australia we are locking up the scumbags who recruit them, we are counting the dead ones, and discussing what to do with those who survive and plan to return. I said ‘plan’ because there’s a very good chance they’ll lose their citizenship as a consequence.
We don’t need an influx of radicalized killers with explosives training, thank you.
And neither do you, for that matter. Those that don’t become martyrs (inshalla) can stay where they are.

I’m sure the 2,000 Moslems are there trying to exercise “peace” fundamentals within the ranks of the small-small-small minority of Moslems that are just a little it radicals that the rest of us see as extreme - and it’s only because we are sooooooo stupid and culturally backwards that we don’t understand the cult for what it is....

NAAAAAAAAAAAAA - ! I’m joking....Islam is a cult of violence - that uses aggression after playing up being the victim to overwhelm their host with a massive population increase where the host population is slaughtered in the end paving the way for Islam’s advancement....

This is a scolarly article on how it is working in Europe.I think most patriotic Americans are preparing to fight them in the streets. Certainly civilian gun and ammo sales reflect this possibility.

At first in such a civil war, the federal government would support the religio fascist immigrants, and ordinary citizens would also have to be prepared to take on their own government for a time.

Well here in the USA the scumbags who recruit them are Obama “community workers.”

And whats even worse, Obama only enforces the illegal immigrant laws against white people, as a matter of Obama fascist historical justice for the alleged wrongs against racial and ethnic minorities supposedly continuing to be perpetrated by whitey on racial and ethnic minorities in the USA.Very few are deported.

This is impeachable activity, and the GOP has just sat on its hands for the last 5 years when both Holder and Obama should have been impeached during their second year in office.

If you study Lebanon - it’s exactly what they did as a Christian majority who let in Moslem Arabs - and by the time 1975 rolled around...Christians were being slaughtered - babies torn apart in front of their parents - little girls were raped and their throats slit...yeah - religion of peace my ***....The Christians that were armed and massed up against the Israeli border were saved until Israel finally invaded and pushed back the Moslems - had it not been for an armed Christian population and Israel - all the Christians would have been murdered!

It is clear what both Europe and America now face, genocide and rape.

That is the historic pattern, a pattern that Obama and our politically correct Congress now ignore. As a nation we should be very clear about the conquest orientation of Islam, and conduct every premptive strike possible against them we can , right here in America.

The historic pattern was well established by 1192 AD, India and virtually nothing has changed since then, as we watch what has happened in Libya and The Sudan today:


TheMoslemConquestofIndiaAn Extract from‘The Story of Civilization’By Will & Ariel Durant[Volume 1, Chapter 16]

The Mohammedan Conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is adiscouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precarious thing, whose delicatecomplex of order and liberty, culture and peace may at any time be overthrown by barbarians invading from without or multiplying within. The Hindus had allowed their strength to be wasted in internal division and war; they hadadopted religions like Buddhism and Jainism, which unnerved them for the tasks of life; they had failed to organize their forces for the protection of their frontiers and their capitals, their wealth and their freedom, from the hordes of Scythians, Huns, Afghans and Turks hovering about India's boundaries and waiting for national weakness to let them in.For four hundred years (600-1000 A.D.) India invited conquest; and at last it came. The first Moslem attack was a passing raid upon Multan, in the western Punjab (664 A.D.) Similarraids occurred at the convenience of the invaders during the next three centuries, with theresult that the Moslems established themselves in the Indus valley about the same time that their Arab co-religionists in the West were fighting the battle of Tours (732 A.D.) for themastery of Europe.But the real Moslem conquest of India did not come till the turn of the first millennium after Christ. In the year 997 a Turkish chieftain by the name of Mahmud became sultan of the little estate of Ghazni, in eastern Afghanistan. Mahmud knew that his throne was young andpoor, and saw that India, across the border, was old and rich; the conclusion was obvious.Pretending a holy zeal for destroying Hindu idolatry, he swept across the frontier with a force inspired by a pious aspiration for booty. He met the unprepared Hindus at Bhimnagar,slaughtered them, pillaged their cities, destroyed their temples, and carried away theaccumulated treasures of centuries.Returning to Ghazni he astonished the ambassadors of foreign powers by displaying “jewelsand unbored pearls and rubies shining like sparks, or like wine congealed with ice, and emeralds like fresh sprigs of myrtle, and diamonds in size and weight like pomegranates.”72 Each winter Mahmud descended into India, filled his treasure chest with spoils, and amused his men with full freedom to pillage and kill; each spring he returned to his capital richer than before.(72 From an ancient Moslem chronicle, Tabakat-i-Nasiri , in Smith,Oxford History,103.) 2)

At Mathura (on the Jumna) he took from the temple its statues of gold encrusted withprecious stones, and emptied its coffers of a vast quantity of gold, silver and jewellery; he expressed his admiration for the architecture of the great shrine, judged that its duplication would cost one hundred million dinars and the labour of two hundred years, and then ordered it to be soaked with naphtha and burnt to the ground.73

Six years later he sacked another opulent city of northern India, Somnath, killed all its fifty thousand inhabitants, and dragged its wealth to Ghazni. In the end he became, perhaps, the richest king that history has ever known.Sometimes he spared the population of the ravaged cities, and took them home to be sold as slaves; but so great was the number of such captives that after some years no one could be found to offer more than a few shillings for a slave.Before every important engagement Mahmud knelt in prayer, and asked the blessing of Allah upon his arms. He reigned for a third of a century; and when he died, full of years and honours, Moslem historians ranked him as the greatest monarch of his time, and one of the greatest sovereigns of any age.74 Seeing the canonization that success had brought to this magnificent thief, other Moslem rulers profited by his example, though none succeeded in bettering his instruction.In 1186 the Ghuri, a Turkish tribe of Afghanistan, invaded India, captured the city of Delhi,destroyed its temples, confiscated its wealth, and settled down in its palaces to establish the Sultanate of Delhi- an alien despotism fastened upon northern India for three centuries, and checked only by assassination and revolt. The first of these bloody sultans, Kutb-ud-Din Aibak, was a normal specimen of his kind -fanatical, ferocious and merciless. His gifts, as the Mohammedan historian tells us, “were bestowed by hundreds of thousands, and his slaughters likewise were by hundreds of thousands.”In one victory of this warrior (who had been purchased as a slave), “fifty thousand men came under the collar of slavery, and the plain became black as pitch with Hindus.”75 Another sultan, Balban, punished rebels and brigands by casting them under the feet of elephants, removing their skins, stuffing these with straw and hanging them from the gates of Delhi. When some Mongolian habitants who had settled in Delhi, and had been converted to Islam, attempted arising, Sultan Ala-ud-din (the conqueror of Chitor) had all the males -from fifteen to thirty thousand of them - slaughtered in one day.73 Havell, History,286. 74 Elphinstone, Mountstuart, History of India,333, 337-3875 Tabakat-i-Nasiri , in Smith,Oxford History,222-23


Sultan Muhammad bin Tughlak acquired the throne by murdering his father, became a greatscholar and an elegant writer, dabbled in mathematics, physics and Greek philosophy,surpassed his predecessors in bloodshed and brutality, fed the flesh of a rebel nephew to therebel's wife and children, ruined the country with reckless inflation, and laid it waste withpillage and murder till the inhabitants fled to the jungle.He killed so many Hindus that, in the words of a Moslem historian, “there was constantly infront of his royal pavilion and his Civil Court a mound of dead bodies and a heap of corpses, while the sweepers and executioners were wearied out by their work of dragging” the victims“and putting them to death in crowds.”76 In order to found a new capital at Daulatabad he drove every inhabitant from Delhi and left it a desert; and hearing that a blind man had stayed behind in Delhi, he ordered him to bedragged from the old to the new capital, so that only a leg remained of the wretch when his last journey was finished.77 The Sultan complained that the people did not love him, or recognize his undeviating justice.He ruled India for a quarter of a century, and died in bed. His successor, Firoz Shah, invaded Bengal, offered a reward for every Hindu head, paid for 180,000 of them, raided Hindu villages for slaves, and died at the ripe age of eighty. Sultan Ahmad Shah feasted for three days whenever the number of defenceless Hindus slain in his territories in one day reached twenty thousand.78 These rulers were often men of ability, and their followers were gifted with fierce courage and industry; only so can we understand how they could have maintained their rule among a hostile people so overwhelmingly outnumbering them. All of them were armed with a religion militaristic in operation, but far superior in its stoical monotheism to any of the popular cults of India; they concealed its attractiveness by making the public exercise of the Hindu religions illegal, and thereby driving them more deeply into the Hindu soul.Some of these thirsty despots had culture as well as ability; they patronized the arts, and engaged artists and artisans--usually of Hindu origin-- to build for them magnificent mosques and tombs; some of them were scholars, and delighted in converse with historians,poets and scientists .One of the greatest scholars of Asia, Alberuni, accompanied Mahmud of Ghazni to India,and wrote a scientific survey of India comparable to Pliny's “Natural History” andHumboldt’s “Cosmos”.76 Smith, 226, 232, 245.77 Ibn Batuta,inSmith, 240.78 Smith, 303. 4 The Moslem historians were almost as numerous as the generals, and yielded nothing to them in the enjoyment of bloodshed and war. The Sultans drew from the people every rupee of tribute that could be exacted by the ancient art of taxation, as well as by straight forward robbery; but they stayed in India, spent their spoils in India, and thereby turned them back into India's economic life. Nevertheless, their terrorism and exploitation advanced that weakening of Hindu physique and morale, which had been begun by an exhausting climate, an inadequate diet, political disunity, and pessimistic religions. The usual policy of the Sultans was clearly sketched by Ala-ud-din, who required his advisers to draw up “rules and regulations for grinding down the Hindus, and for depriving them of that wealth and property which fosters disaffection and rebellion.”79 Half of the gross produce of the soil was collected by the government; native rulers had taken one-sixth. “No Hindu,” says a Moslem historian, “could hold up his head, and in their houses no sign of gold or silver...or of any superfluity was to be seen.... Blows, confinement in the stocks, imprisonment and chains, were all employed to enforce payment.” When one of his own advisers protested against this policy, Alauddin answered: “Oh,Doctor, thou art a learned man, but thou hast no experience; I am an unlettered man, but Ihave a great deal. Be assured, then, that the Hindus will never become submissive andobedient till they are reduced to poverty. I have therefore given orders that just sufficientshall be left to them from year to year of corn, milk and curds, but that they shall not beallowed to accumulate and property.”80 This is the secret of the political history of modern India. Weakened by division, itsuccumbed to invaders; impoverished by invaders, it lost all power of resistance, and took refuge in supernatural consolations; it argued that both mastery and slavery were superficialdelusions, and concluded that freedom of the body or the nation was hardly worth defending in so brief a life. The bitter lesson that may be drawn from this tragedy is that eternal vigilance is the price of civilization. A nation must love peace, but keep its powder dry.
