A Word About Terrorism…

islam.jpgTerrorism.  The dictionary defines it as the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.  Over the centuries we have seen many different kinds of terrorism.  American Indian Attacks on White Settlements on the western frontier would probably be called terrorist attacks today.  The same goes for terror from many different groups over the centuries.  One thing, however, that governments or groups were never unwilling or afraid to do was label the terrorists as what type of terrorists they were.  Since the 1950’s when Muslim Terrorists began attacking the French to drive them from Algeria we have dealt with a particular type of terrorist:  the Muslim Terrorist.

Since the 1950’s he has taken many forms.  The a fore mentioned terrorist could just as easily have been called a freedom fighter, as he simply wanted to expel the French from his country and take it back.  Fortunately for them, they were victorious and drove the French Colonial Government out retaking their country and gaining their independence.  The same could be said for the American Indian, although their campaign was of course, unsuccessful.

World War I saw British and German involvement in the Middle East on a huge scale.  The discovery of large quantities of oil there as well as its strategic proximity to Turkey made it a valuable outpost which both the Germans and the British fought for control of and whose influences remain today.  The British would, under the direction of Colonel Lawrence, the famous Lawrence of Arabia were responsible for uniting the Kingdom of Saud, which is today Saudi Arabia.

At the end of the War, the Treaty of Versailles allowed the Allied Powers to carve up not only Europe, but much of the rest of the world as well.  This was no more apparent than in the Middle East; where the British influenced the creation of Saudi Arabia, but were directly responsible for the creation of Iraq and Iran.  There were no considerations taken for ethnicity, tribal affiliations or historical lands.  There were simply arbitrary lines drawn on the map.  Unfortunately today we see the effects of those arbitrary lines.

Present day Iraq for example is composed of three different ancient states, while present day Iran comprises ancient Persia with parts of other ancient kingdoms.  In many cases, ancient enemies we thrown together in these new countries and forced to live side by side.  This resulted in decades of civil war and insurrection.  Perhaps the best illustration of this is the Kurds in northern Iraq.  This was in fact Kurdistan.  But no more and the Kurds have;  since the early 1900’s wanted their independence.  The Turks of course oppose this on tribal and ethnic grounds.

In Iran you find similar differences, although less pronounced.  Though primarily a Muslim nation, Iran does have a sizable Christian Population; as did Iraq before ISIL began it’s murderous rampage through the Middle East, which I will touch on later.  All religions lived together, balanced on the edge of a razor blade with each knowing and respecting the boundaries of the others; careful never to push to hard against other religions in any meaningful way.  This seemed to work until he past few years.

I explained the British and German involvement briefly earlier; but one cannot discuss the problems in the present day Middle East without including the contributions of the United States, which has meddled and interfered in the Middle East as much;  if not more than even the British.  On August 19th 1953, a joint British-American Operation code-named Operation “Boot” and Operation “AJAX” respectively, overthrew the democratically elected government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in Iran.  They installed king or “Shah” Muhammad Reza Pahlavi who ruled the country ruthlessly as an American Puppet until he was forced into exile in 1979 and later died of cancer.

This gave rise to the return of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeni; who returned the nation of Iran and turned Iran into Muslim Country with a government run by Islamic Clerics and an Islamic Council.  Their first act was on  November 4, 1979 to seize the U.S. Embassy and hold 60 Americans Hostage for 444 days before releasing them.  They promised to punish the U.S. for all the evils they had done and formed state sponsored terror groups like the Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah and began a systematic series attacks on the U.S. and the West. Thus we have one set; probably the most powerful set of terrorists to date.

There was another group of terrorists equally adept at killing innocent men, women and children primarily citizens of Western nations and that was the PLO.  While Western Nations carved up the Middle East as I discussed earlier after WWI; after WWII another state would be created that would in itself cause decades of death and destruction:  Israel. The state of Israel was to be on the very eastern edge of the Mediterranean in the area Biblically referred to as Palestine.

The Balfour Declaration of 1917, called for the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine.  American President Franklin D. Roosevelt  assured the Arabs in 1945 that the United States would not intervene without consulting both the Jews and the Arabs in that region. The British, held a colonial mandate for Palestine until May 1948, and they opposed both the creation of a Jewish state and an Arab state in Palestine as well as unlimited immigration of Jewish refugees to the region. Great Britain wanted to preserve good relations with the Arabs to protect its vital political and economic and strategic interests in Palestine, mainly: oil.

In May 1946, US President Truman announced his approval of a recommendation to admit 100,000 displaced persons into Palestine and in October publicly declared his support for the creation of a Jewish state.  On November 29, 1947 the United Nations adopted Resolution 181 (also known as the Partition Resolution) that divided Great Britain’s former Palestinian mandate into Jewish and Arab states in May 1948 when the British mandate was scheduled to end.  Jerusalem would remain under U.N. control and would be administered by the U.N. because of the religious significance to both religions.  As you can imagine, fighting began almost immediately with the Palestinian Arabs believing it was their land and trying to drive out the Israelis and the Israelis desperately fighting to keep control and establish their new nation.

On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel. U.S. President Harry S. Truman recognized the new nation on the same day.  Almost as quickly we saw formation of multiple Arab-Palestinian Terror Groups, most notably the PLO, or Palestinian Liberation organization.  Since the very day Israel was created, the violence has not stopped despite everything that has been tried and decades of diplomacy.  So this is the second primary group of terrorists.

When we look at the acts of terror since the late 1960’s we have much to take into account from the attacks on Jewish Athletes at the Munich Olympics to the bombing and destruction of the Twin Trade Towers of the World trade Center and strike on the Pentagon in Washington, D.C..  There have been hijackings on the sea such as the Achille Lauro by Abu Nidal and his Muslim Terror Cell to multiple skyjackings over the years where numerous airliners were taken over .  There have been attacks on military installations like the U.S. Marine Barracks Bombing in Beirut in 1982 to the destruction of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania to the U.S. Diplomatic Consulate in Benghazi, Libya in 2014.  Indeed there have been hundreds of attacks by terrorists groups worldwide since the late 1960’s in many, many countries. They all have one thing in common:  They were Muslim Terrorists.

They weren’t Christian, Buddhist, Shinto, Daoist, Taoist, Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Zoroastrian, Yazidi or Jewish.  They weren’t Confucian, Wicca or Druids.  They were Muslim and always fighting one type jihad or another.  Jihad….that’s holy war for those of you in Nanticoke.

So you see, I have a particular anger and frustration as a student of history when I hear about Islam and how the left in particular describes it as a religion of peace.  True Muslims follow he doctrine of Islamic Law called Sharia Law.  Approximately 50-70% of the world’s Muslims believe in Sharia Law.  Strikingly a recent poll of Muslims in the United States showed hat 54% of American Muslims support Sharia Law.  For those of you not familiar with it, let me break it down fr you in terms we can all understand.

As a legal system, the Sharia law covers a very wide range of topics. While other legal codes deal primarily with public behavior, Sharia law covers public behavior, private behavior and private beliefs. Of all legal systems in the world today, Islam’s Sharia law is the most intrusive and strict, especially against women.

According to the Sharia law:

•  Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand (above).
•  Criticizing or denying any part of the Koran is punishable by death.
•  Criticizing or denying Muhammad is a prophet is punishable by death.
•  Criticizing or denying Allah, of Islam is punishable by death.
•  A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death.
•  A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
•  A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
•  A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old
•  Girls’ clitoris should be cut (per Muhammad’s words in Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
•  A woman can have 1 husband, but a man can have up to 4 wives
•  A man can unilaterally divorce his wife but a woman needs her husband’s consent to divorce.
•  A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
•  Testimonies of four male witnesses are required to prove rape against a woman.
•  A woman who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
•  A woman’s testimony in court, allowed only in property cases, carries half the weight of a man’s.
•  A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits.
•  A woman cannot drive a car, as it leads to fitnah (upheaval).
•  A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
•  Meat to be eaten must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah – i.e., be  Halal.
•  Muslims should engage in Taqqyia and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.
•  The list goes on.

Despite honor killings of wives and daughters, genital mutilation, public stoning, rapes and few civil rights… the liberals in America are in LOVE with Islam!  One would think they would be demonstrating against their barbaric treatment of women but apparently they are only pro-woman’s rights when the women are non Muslim.

Apparently Muslim Women don’t deserve rights… which of course makes the left and the ass clowns like the cackling hens on “The View” nothing more than hypocrites! Where’s the outrage?  Where are the demonstrations?  Nothing but crickets.

Muslims, particularly those considering themselves conservative or true followers (about 70%) world wide believe and would choose to follow Sharia.  There are literally dozens of Islamic Terror Groups from Al Quaeda, to ISIL, to Boko Haram, To the Al axra Martyrs Brigade, to Hezbollah.  But the two most deadly have proven to be Al Quaeda and now ISIL.

ISIL in particular is the worst of the worst and was created when President Barack Hussein Obama hastily withdrew US Forces from Iraq.  The remnants of Al Quaeda joined together with other conservative Muslim Groups in  the region to form ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levante) or the other name they Use, ISIS (Islamic State in Iran and Syria.  Their immediate goal is to re-establish the caliphate from the 13th century.  Their eventual goal is to dominate the entire world and create a world wide caliphate.

The original caliphate of Islam had spread all across north Africa up through Spain into France.The caliphate, or Islamic Super-State was stopped in central France by the Christians and Pope Clement and by the Mongol destruction of Baghdad in 1258.

Today the caliphate has been re-established across northern Iraq into Syria and Libya.  They have systematically murdered and killed their way through that area beheading, raping, pillaging and plundering and destroying some of the most holy, irreplaceable archaeological artifacts in the world because they are non-Muslim.  Christians, particularly the Coptic Christians which are the oldest in the world were offered three choices:  convert to Islam, Pay an insane tax which amounted to all of their wealth and become slaves, or die.  They preferred death and while the men were taken away and beheaded en masse, the women and young girls were taken to warehouses, chained up like animals and repeatedly raped and tortured for days, then finally murdered.

Over the weekend we saw what ISIS did in Paris murdering and injuring almost 200 people.  Now millions of Syrians are displaced because of the Syrian Civil War.  They are spreading across Europe promising to take over within 10 years and make all of Europe part of the caliphate and rather than fight for their very existence, the liberals in Europe are letting them in.  In Germany alone in h pas 6 months there have been hundreds of rapes and sex crimes committed by refugees against German Women.

Now Barack Hussein Obama wants to open the flood gates and allow Syrian Refugees into America while ISIS has already said they have mixed many of their operatives in with the refugees and our own FBI Director has said there is no way to absolutely be certain of the background of any of these people. They have neither the money nor the resources. Obama, Hillary Clinton and the American Left don’t even want to slow down the rate at which refugees are allowed  into America!  They seem to have no desire whatsoever to protect the homeland; but are totally consumed with political correctness.  Despite the fact that in the past two days a dozen Syrians have been stopped at the Mexican Border, in Arizona and in Honduras and illegally in America or illegally trying  to get  into America.

They will not be satisfied until they have completed their mission…their goal!  ISIS is self-funding and self-recruiting and uses sophisticated recruitment tools like social media all over the world.  The United States could wipe them out in the wink of an eye, but we have a president who is himself Muslim and certainly appears to be on the side of those who want to destroy America. It seems as though Barack Hussein Obama and his wife, the wide hipped, cheeseburger eating, Silverback both seem to harbor this underlying hatred for America.  Even though they have reached the pinnacle of power they detest the very country that allowed them to excel.

That’s another story though.  Tens of thousands dead worldwide, decades of injured, maimed and murdered innocent men women and children, lives and communities destroyed, priceless relics destroyed and all in the name of Allah.Different names…Al Quaeda, ISIS, ISIL, Hezbollah, but one thing in common…Islamic Jihad for the glory of Islam and their Muslim Brothers.  So DON’T tell me ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE!
