Militant Islam 101: a history and a warning
Citizens For A Freer America ^ | 11-20-2007 | Daryl L. Hunter

Posted on 11/25/2007 4:55:57 PM PST by Daryl L.Hunter

Compiled, plagiarized and pseudo authorized by Daryl L. Hunter

In the wake of the Iraq War, there has been much Monday morning quarter backing by America's weak offensive line (liberals) who insist the “War on Terror” is to be waged only against Osuma bin ladens al Qaeda. This essay is to make the connection of pan-Islamo Fascism and its long terrorism history. As the democratic world confronts al Qeada's Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hezbollah 's Hassan Nasrallah, and their followers, many among us are trying to understand militant Islam, where it came from and its aims. The following background material is designed to give an overview of the phenomenon that has been called "militant Islam," "fundamentalist Islam," “Islamo Fascism” “Islamism,” or "radical Islam."

"Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope." - the Muslim Brotherhood

Early Islamism

The roots of militant Islam go back to the thirteenth century; to a traditionalist legal philosopher named Ibn Taymiya, who opposed Islam's incorporation of western influences. The most successful militant Islamic movement, which drew its inspiration from Ibn Taymiya is the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam. Ibn Abd al-Wahhab, a fundamentalist sheikh who preached religious reform, forged an alliance with a local village chief, Muhammad Ibn Saud, to overturn un-Islamic practices that had become prevalent among the Arabia's people. As with his ideological ancestor Ibn Taymiya, Ibn Wahhab fought Muslim rulers who he believed failed to implement a pure form of Islam. Between 1773 and 1819, the Saudis and the Wahhabis united to conquer the Arabian Peninsula, and found the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.--------------> More

It is good to hear them when they speak out.

I got to meet Walid Shubat after a very enlightning speech he made, in Jackson Hole, and it was quite an eye opener.

Thanks good job! I think this article highlights the danger posed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Their members create other terrorist groups like Al Qaeda. The Brotherhood are everywhere, even in our own cities in America and Europe. They present themselves as being very mainstream and open, almost like they believe in separation between mosque and state. They have politicians and they let their women show their faces. The Brotherhood even “attacks” Al Qaeda online. But I think their intentions are clear once you read more about them. They are trying to replace Christianity with Islam by reaching out to minorities and poor people in America. I think their goal is to splinter more militant organizations in America just like they do in the ME.

It’s an old islamic legend : an extortionist lives in a secret cave somewhere in the desert. He extorts money from local sheiks. If they don’t pay up he sends his assassins...OBL thus fits right in with that ancient arabic legend. Note that 911 hit the twin trade towers, a western FINANCIAL center...

The Muslim Brotherhood does a bait and switch like the Sierra Club's, David Brower started doing in the seventies when the Sierra Club would start sub organizations that were more radical in order to make the Sierra Club look mainstream. The Sierra Club looks pretty mild when you compare them to their grandchild organization - The Earth Liberation Front.

Given the strong hostility of the Koran towards Christian and Jew it is difficult to believe that any religious, Koran-believing, Koran-loving Muslim could be anything but an enemy of America and the Western World.

Add to this the moral degeneracy and godlessness of the Western World and you have a very potent mixture. This degeneracy only validates in the Muslim mind the outlooks and attitudes of the Koran in regard to Christians and Jews and confirms their satanic nature.

Now add another ingredient to the brew: the stance of at least some Muslim clerics that mass murder of infidels is morally justified, and indeed is a righteous act of great merit, and that a person who sacrifices his own life in the act of killing infidels will be rewarded by God with the highest heaven.

With a soup of this mixture it is easy to understand all the violent, shocking acts of terrorism and mass murder in regions everywhere in this world where the Muslim world interfaces with the non-Muslim world --- where you see Muslims rubbing shoulder to shoulder with Jews, Christians, Hindus or some other religion. And you wonder about the prudence of the West in welcoming into their midst people of this particular outlook.

You also wonder how societies holding the ideal of freedom of religion can accommodate people with such outlooks.

That is why it is so important for us to learn about them and the genisis of their imnity and its history.

Too many westerners have their head in the sand and we are all going to pay the price for our ignorance, by choice.

Daryl: Add to everything else that many Islamists believe that these are the End Times, when the Hadith foretells that Islam will inevitably govern the world.

The essay was long enough, my point was Islamism didn't start because of what some would call - American Imperialism - !

If I had searched, I bet I would find that there was never any time in history when Radical Muslims wouldn't have wanted to kill schoolteachers for naming a teddy bear Mohammad.

Sorry for not including all centuries.

Well, for about 250 yrs before that, there were the Fatimids. Pretty decent bunch, for muslims. It was a difficult era to be decent in, no matter what your religion. I think they died out in the mid-1100's, or shortly after the Crusades began in earnest. Probably just ran out of steam in the typical way, though.

>>>“Extreme” Islam started at 1300 AD huh? 600 years of silence from 650-1300? Nothing happened?<<<

If you’re asking what happened during those 600 years, there was the invasion of Spain, several attempts to control the Mediterranean Sea and the islands therein, endless attacks on the Byzantines, the invasion of India, and the systematic control of the Christian centers of culture in the Middle East. The Islamic people of North Africa also institutionalized the slave trade across the Sahara Desert at the time. Of course, there were the Crusades. We can thank the Byzantines for stopping the Moslems where they were so Europe could essentially wallow in their filth until they pulled themselves back together. You are of course correct that the jihadi impulses and tactics seen today had their genesis at the start of the religion itself and how it initially spread.

Great article. If there is one name that is deliberately left out of WW2 and Middle East history in schools & universities, it’s Amin al-Husseini. I’ve taken several classes about the ME & the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and not once has he been mentioned. PC at work yet again.

The Misnomer of Radical Islam America’s Security Blunder June 27, 2008 by Martel Sobieskey

There is the erroneous assertion that Radical Islam is not connected with mainstream (moderate) Islam in any way, that the religion of Islam has been “hijacked by a few extremists” that the vast majority of Muslims do not agree with the Islamofascists. Such thinking is a terrible error and a grave threat to America’s national security, especially in this age of nuclear terrorism.

So what is Radical Islam and what should it be properly named? Radical Islam is actually the Islamic Military. The so-called radicals are not a fringe element; they are fully supported by the worldwide Islamic community (Ummah). If they were a fringe element, they would have been defeated long ago. The fight rages on because of strong support from the moderates both covertly and overtly. This means the Islamic Military (wrongly labeled radicals) is intimately connected with moderate Muslims who we have mistakenly labeled as innocent bystanders.

Moderate Muslims are not innocent bystanders. Moderate Muslims provide the base of operations which makes it possible for the Islamic Military to continue their terrorist operations. Hate America, demands to replace constitution with the Koran, and outbursts for Sharia law are preached openly from nearly every Mosque in America under the guise of freedom of speech and religion. Freedom of speech and religion has morphed into a weaponized tool of Islamic psychological warfare which is defeating America’s will to protect her national security. Any American who says Islam is less than perfect may become the victim of an unfair lawsuit by a “moderate” Muslim organization.

Why can one be so certain about this fact? The answer is the Koran. The Koran fuses together both moderates and their military. No Muslim dares to contradict the Koran because the penalty is — death and loss of personal salvation. The moderate Muslims of every nation, including those in America fully support their Islamic military because worldwide conquest is the primary religious duty of all Muslims. Fellow Americans if you believe that your local Muslims are not secretly harboring in their hearts an agenda for the conquest of America by Islam then you are dead wrong, and understand nothing about the Koran.

Moderate Muslims may not carry weapons and murder innocent people hands on, but they play the role of “wolves in sheep’s clothing”. Moderate Muslims use two primary strategies to make conquest for Islam. The first is dawa, which is influence peddling, “wining and dining” and manipulation. You make conquest by “pleasing” your opponent, “buttering them up” — bribery and back room dealings are common place. There is a “ton” of Muslim oil money buying preferential treatment for Islam in America. The second is taqiyya, which is outright deception and lying. Deception and lying to infidels as a strategy of conquest is one of Islam’s most valued “weapons”, a precedent set by the prophet Mohammed himself. Americans hear this deception everyday with proclamations that “Islam is a religion of peace.” This phrase is an excellent example of successful psychological warfare which has caused Americans to let down their guard, and made us very vulnerable to future terrorist attacks, even possible nuclear attacks as several experts have pointed out.

Recent history proves that the “so called peaceful Muslims” work as a team with their Islamic Military. They immigrate to a country touting what peaceful law abiding citizens they are, establish themselves, build mosques, increase their numbers and “bingo” terrorists acts start occurring in the host country. Do the attacks in Spain, England, France, Thailand, Bali, the Philippines, Holland, Sweden and the USA ring any bells here? All these attacks have been preceded by the establishment of moderate mosque communities which in turn became footholds from which the Islamic military could launch their terrorist attacks. The larger the percentage of Muslims that occupy a country the greater the havoc they wreak. The situation is directly proportional. Reducing the percentage of Muslims that dwell in the host country is the most effect way of stopping terrorism. Western governments must evaluate this fact very seriously if they wish to win the war against Islamofascism long term.

Have we Americans become gullible fools? As long as we fail to deal aggressively and comprehensively with the intimate Koranic connection between the moderate Muslims and their Islamic military we can never stop the terrorist attacks. Have you ever wondered why, so numerous the complaints worldwide, that Muslims are not assimilating into their host nation? It is because they are not there to assimilate — they are there to conqueror the host country for Islam as their Koran requires. Fellow Americans please read the Koran for your self. Don’t take my word on it. You will learn first hand that anyone who tells you that Islam is a religion of peace is insulting your intelligence. The Penguin Classic edition, The Koran, translated by the Arab Scholar N. J. Dawood is a well respected version having sold over a million copies worldwide.

The best description of the symbiotic Koranic relationship between the moderates and their military comes from the Muslims themselves. They have a saying, “the poisonous fish swim in the sea”. The “poisonous fish” are the militants and the “sea” is the moderate mosque community. For example, for their 9/11 operation, the Islamic Military (poisonous fish) used the Al Farouq mosque in New York as the “sea” from which they “swam” to pulverize the trade towers. The next poisonous fish may be swimming from the sea of your local Mosque community with a nuclear explosion. Wake up Americans we are not fighting with bows and arrows anymore. We must take aggressive preventative measures to stop the Islamic military’s “euphoric” obsession to make a nuclear attack on American soil.

It is a great mistake to continue calling the Islamic military radicals because the term “radicals” has blinded us to think that the moderates are not in cahoots with their Islamic Military. In so doing we have violated the primary dictum of warfare which is to know and understand one’s enemy. Consequently, we have failed to understand that the Islam of Osama Bin Laden is main stream Islam – not a radical fringe. Osama Bin Laden is one of the generals of the Islamic military which is fully supported by the worldwide community of moderate Muslims, including American Muslims. Both moderate Muslims and their military have the same goal which is the Islamic conquest of the entire world — this is the primary religious duty of all Muslims as required by the Koran. Americans desperately need to understand this fact if they wish to protect their country from great harm.

Martel Sobieskey has 35 years research experience in the field of religious conditioning and its relationship to warfare. He is greatly alarmed that American politicians, educators, and security personnel have failed to comprehend the deeply entrenched Jihadist religious conditioning inherent in Islam.
