MUSLIMS AND TERRORISM
boblonsberry.com ^ | 04/22/13 | Bob Lonsberry

Posted on 04/22/2013 9:35:29 AM PDT by shortstop

Spare me the lectures.

This isn’t about our attitudes toward Muslims, it’s about their attitudes toward us.

Every time there is a Muslim attack against Americans, here or abroad, it unleashes another session of sensitivity training. It started Friday night when the president told us not to judge groups of people, and when the television anchors asked in wide-eyed bewilderment what the possible motive for last week’s terrorist attack could be.

Well, if they don’t know, they’re the only ones.

Some will pretend otherwise, but they will only be pretending.

We don’t need another interfaith service with a prayer by an imam. We don’t need more condescension on the subject of the “religion of peace.”

We don’t need to be treated like we’re the problem.

We, as you may recall, didn’t attack anybody.

We did not plant those bombs.

They did.

And acknowledging that does not make you a bigot, it makes you a realist.

Unfortunately, they blow us up and we’re the ones who get treated like we’re cavemen.

So let me set the record straight: You can recognize and fight the reality of global Islamic terrorism without thinking ill of your Muslim neighbor. The average American – contrary to what the liberal elites think – has the mental capacity to see Muslim terrorism without thinking that all Muslims are terrorists.

And yet it is only a matter of days until the editorials and op-eds begin, telling us how great Islam is, and how persecuted Muslims are.

And we, being nice people with a new-found need to apologize, will bend over backwards to show how nice we are. If April 15 is anything like September 11, we will mark the one-year anniversary with Muslim-culture seminars.

The folks who run the evening news – and the White House – will see in all this a need for us to understand and respect the culture of Islam.

Which is crap.

What we need is for the culture of Islam to stop spawning terrorists.

And we need to stop pretending that Islam doesn’t spawn terrorists.

Certainly, the imam at the mosque down the street tells us that Islam is a religion of peace, and any number of his followers will tell the TV cameras that terrorists aren’t real Muslims. But there seems to be come confusion about what constitutes a “real” Muslim.

Though, to some many tens of millions of Muslims in the Middle East – and wherever Chechnya is – there isn’t any confusion. They’re the ones who cheer, fund and commit unrelenting acts of terrorism.

That is a fact.

A fact that in our worship of political correctness we must ignore. Instead, we will be instructed to look at our own cultural and religious intolerances.

Somehow, it’s our fault they blow us up.

I’m not sure whose fault it is when they blow themselves and each other up.

So let’s find the honest middle ground.

Islam is losing a war with itself over its future. There is a wonderful, civilized streak of Islam. Hopefully, that’s the part of Islam your neighbor’s from.

But that’s not all of Islam, and it might not even be the majority of Islam. There is a dramatic, dynamic streak of Islam that, like some vestige of a thousand years ago, wants to rise as Islam has risen in the past – at the edge of the sword.

For example, the older of the two Boston terrorists. His father named him Tamerlan. That’s a name that should ring a bell. The original Tamerlan called himself “The Sword of Islam,” and spread his power and his religion as far across Europe, Asia and Africa as he could. Along the way, he killed some 17 million people, roughly 5 percent of the entire human population at the time. It was a policy of “convert or die.”

That’s who the older terrorist was named after.

Which is kind of odd.

It’s sort of like a modern German naming his kid Adolph.

Though the Obama administration has banned the phrase “War on Terrorism,” Muslim terrorism exists, and is one of the dominant themes of our world. It shapes the present world situation, and may determine the future world situation.

And though we may not fight it, it is going to fight us, until Boston – and the rest of America – looks like Baghdad.

We can recognize that, while also respecting the social and constitutional rights of Americans who happen to be Muslims. We are not idiots or savages. We don’t think every Muslim is a terrorist. We don’t suspect every Muslim. We don’t disrespect or discriminate against them.

But we do recognize the truth.

And it’s too bad the president and the TV anchors don’t do the same.

Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

Frontline ^ | Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book
Posted on Monday, March 31, 2008 7:07:45 PM by engrpat..."Received this in a email today.///Thought I would pass it on for everyones information."
(from a soon to be released major work - see book credit at end)

Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components.
The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

Islamization:
Occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called "religious rights."
When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to "the reasonable" Muslim demands for their "religious rights," they also get the other components under the table.

Here's how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)). As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States -- Muslim 1.0%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1%-2%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby
securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris -- car-burnings). Any non- Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam -- Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 10-15%
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide: Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam" -- the Islamic House of Peace - there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 99.9%


Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons..."Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me
against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel."
-- Leon Uris, "The Haj"

It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

Oh, I think Americans figured out what Islam "is", a long time ago...

"The Koran demands perpetual war against all who deny Mahomet as the prophet of God" - John Quincy Adams
"Treachery and violence are taught as principles of Mohamet's religion" - John Quincy Adams
"While the merciless dogmas of Muhammad remain there can never be peace upon earth" - John Quincy Adams

Good post.

Let’s narrow it down a little. What group has self-identified themselves as enemies and wanting to kill all others on the planet Earth that don’t believe the way they do?

Salafist muslim jihadist males (SMJM). This is the identity of our enemy. Everyone else on the planet needs to wake up in the morning understanding the enemy. Including the FBI and CIA?

I mean especially the FBI and CIA. As in past national enemies we had our military as a screening force, keeping our homeland safe. We no longer can count on that.

When the Tsaraevs and their ilk come to out attention in any way shape or form, green card, naturalized citizen, foreign student visa or otherwise, they should immediately be put on an ICE hold, immigration hold, interviews, etc.

In the very least, the jihadist wannabees should be watched online on a FISA warrant.

I don’t include shiites or muslim females as they have not shown themselves to be interested, in significant numbers, to be a general threat.

I am so tired of weakling media commentators wanting to go slow. “Well, we don’t know that for sure...”

What crap, there were former FBI agents last Sunday saying “We need to wait for all the facts to come in.”

Well, while we are waiting, they’re buying pressure cookers and they ain’t making jam folks.

Muslims don’t need no freakin motive.

Killing is fun for them.

Beheadings are the best, cutting hands off for stealing is fun, Killing their sister for screwing aint bad either.

But bombing where they kill and maim anyone is great—— Christians even better.

It’s the religion of pieces.

It should be banned in every civilised country in the world.
A Satanic cult of murder, denigration of women, and sex with little boys.

“The average American – contrary to what the liberal elites think – has the mental capacity to see Muslim terrorism without thinking that all Muslims are terrorists.”

Correct.

However, even though not ALL Muslims are terrorists, most Muslimis view Jihads and Jihadis in a positive light as they approve of their goals. Furthermore,even though most Muslims are no themselves terrorists, Islam is a terrorist system and the Koran is a terrorist’s guidebook.

Most Sicilians were not Mafiosi. But most Sicilians did not support he Mafia - they feared it and tried to distance themselves from it - despite the Godfather series.

Its an etirely different situation with Islam.

“We don’t suspect every Muslim.”

I sure as hell do. The Koran itself commands violence. Ever read it? Violence has been an integral part of Islam since its inception, as 1,400 bloody years of history shows.

Sure, not every muslim kills an infidel, but their lifelong affiliation with that murderous religion proves their tacit approval of it.

A practicing muslim who believes in the teachings of the Koran has no other choice but to become a murderer of non-muslims.

Hey America, read the Koran dammit!

“What we need is for the culture of Islam to stop spawning terrorists.”

They cannot because it is an inherrent property of Islam to do so. Their “prophet” encouraged this.

“And we need to stop pretending that Islam doesn’t spawn terrorists.”

Too many useless idiots in this country that would rather bask Christians than admit Islam is inherently evil.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components.

So does Judaism.

BTW, the systematic difference between the Islamic and Jewish military systems is that (after the conquest of Canaan) the latter is a national militia for defensive purposes only.

Islamic terrorism needs to be met head on just like the crusaders did when they drove it back long ago.

A two-step response would work: First, defile the remains of all Islamic terrorists by feeding them to pigs which would then be slaughtered and buried in unmarked graves in the mountains of Afghanistan. According to their belief system, their god will not accept them in this case. Second, if Muslims do not come together to put an end to Islamic terrorism by reporting and seperating from terrorists within seven years of step one being implemented, nuke Mecca.

And your point would be?

That it is illegitimate to criticize Islam because it has political attributes. So does Judeo-Christianity. For the article to argue as much is to buy into the perfidy that is "separation of church and state." The people of the several States have every right to pass local laws respecting the exercise of their faith in any religion except Islam. This is a legitimate argument as to why:

Islamists comprise a cult advocating conversion by violence, not persuasion by example as is Judeo-Christianity. Islamists have no intent of respecting the laws of the nation or the free exercise of any other religion; they believe that Sharia supersedes any other laws. They are therefore not participants in the social contract that is the Constitution and undeserving of its protections.
