It is something to have gone 10 years without an Islamic attack of similarly gigantic proportions to those of Sept. 11, 2001, but it is not enough. That's because the decade we look back on is marked by a specifically Islamic brand of security from jihad. It was a security bought by the Bush and Obama administrations' policies of appeasement based in apology for, and irrational denial of, Islam's war doctrine, its anti-liberty laws and its non-Western customs. As a result of this policy of appeasement -- submission -- we now stand poised on the brink of a golden age.
Tragically for freedom of speech, conscience and equality before the law, however, it is an Islamic golden age. It's not just the post-9/11 rush into Western society of Islamic tenets and traditions on everything from law to finance to diet that has heralded this golden age, although that's part of it. More important is the fact that our central institutions have actively primed themselves for it, having absorbed and implemented the central codes of Islam in the years since the 9/11 attacks, exactly as the jihadists hoped and schemed.
Take the U.S. military, symbol plus enforcer of American security.
In Afghanistan, our forces are now "trained on the sanctity of the holy book (the Quran) and go to significant steps to protect it," as the official International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) website reported last year.
Are they similarly trained to take "significant steps" to "protect" other books? Hardly. It's reckless and irresponsible to demand that troops make the protection of any book a priority in a war zone. But it's not merely the case that U.S. troops have become protectors of the Quran in the decade following 9/11. "Never talk badly about the Qu'ran or its contents," ISAF ordered troops earlier this year. Did the Pentagon restrict language about "Mein Kampf" or the "Communist Manifesto"? They, too, were blueprints for world conquest that the United States opposed. Of course not. But the Quran is different. It is protected by Islamic law, and that's enough for the Pentagon. Not incidentally, ISAF further cautioned troops to direct suspects to remove any Qurans from the vicinity before troops conduct a search -- no doubt for the unstated fear that infidel troops might defile the protected book.
None may "touch the Qu'ran except in the state of ritual purity," the Islamic law book Reliance of the Traveller declares. And "ritual purity," naturally, is a state a non-Muslim can never, ever achieve under Islam.
Since when did Uncle Sam incorporate Islamic law into military protocols?
Now take the State Department, symbol and nerve center of U.S. action on the world stage.
In July, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a collaborative effort between the United States and the OIC, newly repackaged as Organization of the Islamic Cooperation. (It used to be "C" for Conference.) The get-together planned for Washington, D.C., is supposed to implement a non-binding resolution against religious "stereotyping" (read: Islamic "stereotyping") that passed last March at the U.N. Human Rights Council. Such "stereotyping," of course, includes everything from honest assessments of the links between Islamic doctrine and Islamic terrorism to political cartoons. This makes this U.S.-led international effort nothing short of a sinister attempt to snuff free speech about Islam. And that sure sounds like a U.S.-co-chaired assault on the First Amendment. Not only is this treachery on the part of the U.S. government, it also happens to be part and parcel of the OIC's official 10-year-plan.
Since when did Uncle Sam get in the business of doing the bidding of the OIC?
This is just a snapshot of what the rush toward Islamization as a goal of national policy looks like, 10 years since the Twin Towers collapsed in a colossal cloud of dust and fire. The air has cleared, but the appeasement and the Islamization go on. Thus, a golden age begins, but unless we throw off this mental yoke of submission, it cannot be our own.
Islam is turning on itself with resulting destruction chaos. It is not the golden age of Islam, but the winter of Islam.
The age of Satan is a better term.
The only thing that is holding Islam together is the West and the US, in particular. It would be collapsing right now from its encounter with modernity - and the fact that no society based on Islam can survive in the modern world - but the US is protecting Islamic countries and groups from the consequences of their actions and is protecting and even funding their states and their colonies within the West.
Without US help, Islam would be in its death throes right now.
Your favored author tells it like it is!
I’ve got a better stance for the righteous U.S. military on islam; it is the enemy, continue annihilating it and burning every book you come across until it is conquered.
We'd be smart to leave Iraq with the WMD program we were never able to find. Let them face off against Iran like the 1980s again, but this time, with atomic weapons in their holster.
Arab Spring = Islamist Winter?
Everybody sing along!
"All men lose when freedom fails, and good men rot in filty jails. And those who cried "appease, appease," Are hanged (or, in this case, BEHEADED) by those they sought to please.
Not to overburden this conversation with reality, but Islam doesn’t need big attacks for the jihad to win in the west. Every time an Irish grandmother is searched at an airport, every time our government labels innocent citizens terrorists, every time Islam is pushed in our public schools, terrorism wins.
14,000+ outreach documents confirm this, courtesy of America’s Fallaci, Pam Geller:
Our political class wants to make sure that we do not understand the enemies or their goal. They don’t want us to talk about it, any more than the rot destroying us from within. I’ve said it before, Liberalism is AIDS to civilization and like AIDS, it hijacks the immune system, infects brain, and turns reproduction into death.
Thanks rmlew, well said.
