The mad dream of a dead empire that unites Islamic rebels
NY Post ^ | 6/14/14 | Amir Taheri

Posted on 06/14/2014 6:39:59 PM PDT by jimbo123

They call themselves the Army of God (Jund Allah) and claim to be fighting to unite mankind under the banner of Islam as “the only true faith.” To achieve that goal, they believe they should revive the Islamic Caliphate, the theocratic empire developed after the death of Prophet Mohammed in 632 AD.

Adepts of the caliphate movement are present throughout the world, including the United States, under different labels. In many places, from the Philippines to Nigeria, passing by Thailand, India, Afghanistan and Syria, they have taken up arms to capture a chunk of territory as the embryo of their dream empire.

A Dark Age religion, isn’t it?

And they “want” to go back to the Dungeons and Dragons and Infidels and Camels and Tents and Swords of the 7th century?

NOTHING HAS CHANGED since Winston Churchill's fateful words from 1899, which the Left pretends he never wrote...

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step, and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it (Islam) has vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

Things are NOT actually “out of control.” The Bible states a well-established doctrine (regarding the character and power of God) in that ALL THINGS are under his control - whether ‘permitted’ or by his ‘active will’ - so that NOTHING is outside the control of God.

The real question here is, as we look at this Muslims “going wild” with their god “Allah” ... is ... “Whose God is really in comtrol, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob - or - the God of Ishmael and Mohammed?”

The answer to that question, comes out in the end as to whether ... ALL MUSLIMS are killed - or - ALL JEWS are killed.

Christians believe it’s the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who is the true God, and thus it’s ALL MUSLIMS who will be killed, as a result.

One should note ... in a follow-up to previous comment ... that Jesus, as the Messiah of Israel, will return and totally KILL ALL MUSLIMS and DEPOPULATE all Muslims from the Middle East. That’s Jesus’ solution to this problem.

I remember back with Billy was president that Hillary used to speak out about the treatment of women by the Taliban. I guess she figured it wasn't politically correct anymore and went silent. She even sought billions of our taxpayer dollars to give to nations that we're very brutal to women. Hillary is a traitor and her only fight for women's rights is in campaign speeches. some_text

Follow the bucks. Recruiting, training, equipping, paying and deploying a fighting force with all the support necessary costs a fortune. The Saudis are financing these “Islamists” Post bin Laden al Queda is a Saudi financed Sunni international fighting force. They are deployed in Syria and Iraq fighting to create an Arabic speaking Sunni confederation composed of large parts of Syria and Iraq to confront Iran.

They are just ticked off that the Saudi Bedouins, once God's POOREST folks on the planet, are now some of God's richest.

SAUDI ARABIAN AMERICAN OIL COMPANY = a marriage made in heaven in the oil and natural gas fields.

"ARAMCO" comes from putting ARABIAN and AMERICAN and COMPANY together in one word.

From Google: Aramco, in full: Arabian American Oil Company, founded by the Standard Oil Co. of California (Chevron) in 1933, when the government of Saudi Arabia granted it a concession. Other U.S. companies [EXXON, FLYING A, SHELL (Royal DUTCH Shell)] joined after oil was found near Dhahran in 1938.
In 1950 Aramco opened a pipeline from Saudi Arabia to the Mediterranean Sea port of Sidon, Lebanon.
It was closed in 1983 except to supply a refinery in Jordan. A more successful pipeline, with a destination on the Persian Gulf, was finished in 1981.
In 1951 Aramco found the first offshore oil field in the Middle East. In the 1970s and ’80s, control gradually passed to the Saudi Arabian government, which eventually took over Aramco and renamed it Saudi Aramco in 1988.

=========================

The KING of Saudi Arabia personally owns all the petroleum and natural gas (that invariable comes up with the petroleum) and it stays with him, else the richer, more powerful Saudi families would fight over it.
In 1982 the King BOUGHT back the U.S. rights to all the petroleum and natural gas. He owns it all NOW.
HAH, he probably paid for it out of his pocket change.

By 1985 (when we left there) the King was taking in US$1 billion EVERY two and a half days.

YIKES!!

GREAT PIC of Barrack Hussein Obama II.

1. The first consonantal spelling, B-R-K (Arabic: بارك‎, Bārak, and Hebrew: ברךּ‎ Bārak), is most commonly associated in Arabic with the meaning "blessed" as well as the meanings "to make to kneel down" (said of the camel), "to stoop", and "to cower". In Hebrew, it can be traced from Phoenecian, Ugaritic, Aramaic, Akkadian, and Classical Arabic roots having the meanings, "knee", "kneel", "prostrate", "venerate", "bless", "be blessed", and "boon" as well as (camel's, human) "chest" and sometimes "curse" or "blaspheme"

2. "Hussein" means "good," "handsome," or "beautiful" in Arabic.

3. His last name doesn't come from Arabic.
From Google:
Obama is an African surname. It is not an uncommon Luo surname. The name comes from Swahili and, although no etymological breakdown is offered, is said to refer to members of the Luo tribe who converted to Islam.
Obama (小浜) is also a Japanese surname literally meaning "little beach". The Obama clan (小浜氏) were a samurai clan of feudal Japan.

===========================================

I'd go for the "curse" and/or the "blaspheme" meanings.

Where, o where, is that dang BARF graphic that I love so much??
A raghead by any other name....

So you’re saying Obama is, “a little beach”?

I think Putin would agree with your assessment.

Haha, I'm sure he would.

I bet Putin can bench press the weight of our POTUS.

What a woos the POTUS is.

Congratulations, the duck comes down and gives you $50.

The points you left out in your prescient response are:

(A) The Saudis have deep hooks into the political class of both parties. George W Bush's democracy experiment in Iraq was at least in part influenced by the Saudis fear of a Shia led veiled dictatorship. Individuals who had direct influence on the POTUS included Jim Baker and other Houston influence peddlers and fixers who the Saudis had helped make very wealthy men.

(B) The Mahdi and Brennan are philo-Sunni Muslims who along with their Saudi friends thought disrupting Alawi ruled Syria and encouraging a ‘Sunni revival’ in Iraq would work well as part of the ‘Arab Spring’ to contain Iran and insulate the Saudis who are the official ‘Guardians of the Holy Cities of Islam’. The ISIS may be blowback or it may be a covertly controlled Saudi (or some faction of the Saudi establishment such as the Bin Turki clan) only time will tell.

What is clear is the US faces the possibility of either having to launch a huge NEO operation that would be as big as a large military operation or having hundreds of US nationals murdered and hundreds more held hostage.

Interested in a scriptural reference for this claim.

.
And to think that this woos is in control of the nuclear football and has admitted to stand with the Muslims.

America really knows how to pick their POTUS.
