My Fellow Muslims: Wake Up!
religionjournal ^ | Feb. 25, 2005 | KAMAL NAWASH

Posted on 02/25/2005 10:58:36 AM PST by AliVeritas

( Muslim-bashing. That's the accusation many of my fellow Muslims now hurl at the various news outlets for their news stories about a Freedom House investigation that found extremist Islamic literature in some leading American mosques. This name-calling is unfortunate.

Since 1980, the Muslim world has experienced an enormous growth of religious fanaticism and extremism the likes of which Islam has not experienced in its 1,400 years. This movement continues to grow because of the spread of Wahhabi Islam, a sect that used to number no more than one percent of all Muslims, but because of money and technology, has spread to more areas around the world.

Extremism is also growing because of an ideology called political Islam. The basis of political Islam is the rejection of secularism and the belief that the mosque and the state should be completely intertwined. Unfortunately, history has shown that when politics and religion are completely intertwined, disaster results.

Most importantly, extremism in the Muslim world continues to grow because most Muslims are unwilling to admit that we have a problem with extremism and support for terrorism. The response by Muslims to the Freedom House report is not the first time that the Muslim community resorted to denial and accusations of Muslim-bashing when presented with evidence of Muslim culpability.

After September 11, many in the Muslim world chose denial and hallucination rather than face up to the sad fact that Muslims perpetrated the 9/11 terrorist acts. After 9/11, many Muslims, including religious leaders and "intellectuals," blamed 9/11 on a Jewish conspiracy, and went as far as fabricating a tale that 4,000 Jews did not show up for work in the World Trade Center on that day.

We can no longer afford to be silent.

Moderate Muslims have an opportunity to save themselves before the window closes on them. At some point enough people will conclude that only violence from the western side is the only solution then it will be too late for Islam.

Not every westerner is French.

Congressman refuses to probe illegal alien
terrorist cell in his own district

January 28, 2005 - Despite widespread news reports linking Moroccan Muslims to worldwide terrorism, Florida Congressman Ric Keller (R-8-FL) has declined to call for a formal FBI or Government Accounting Office (GAO) investigation of Orlando Homeland Security official Mary Schneider's concrete evidence of green card bribery of immigration officials by illegal Moroccan Muslims linked to a terrorist cell in Keller's central Florida congressional district--the hub of Sunshine State tourism and airline traffic.

Our interview with the Orlando immigration adjudication officer revealed that Keller, who is a member of the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security told Mary Schneider "your problem is not a matter within the purview of a federal agency." Full Story

"It is a certain fact that not all Muslims are terrorists, but it is equally certain,and exceptionally painful, that almost all terrorists are Muslims..."
Abdel Rahman al-Rashed, ARAB NEWS 9 September 2004

Holy War on the Home Front

Holy War on the Home Front:
The Secret Islamic Terror Network in the United States


"Nearly three years after 9/11, the war on terror is far from over. In fact, a leading terrorism expert argues that despite the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the efforts of the Department of Homeland Security, we're not really any safer at all.

Harvey Kushner, a respected adviser to the FBI, the FAA, the INS, and other government agencies, offers frightening new evidence of a unified Islamic terrorist network that is operating inside the United States and planning new opportunities to strike.

Kushner identifies and assesses the violent plans of these Islamic organizations and individuals who take advantage of our reluctance to engage in ethnic profiling. He supports his claims with never-before-seen documents from top-level government sources, exposing a secret network of Arab intelligence agencies, terrorists, university professors, corrupt imams and other religious leaders, and violent criminals.

Some members of this network are recent immigrants; others have been American citizens for years. Some are laundering money from abroad through seemingly innocuous charities and mosques. Some have even infiltrated our military as Arabic translators and Muslim chaplains..."

The influential Washington-based Center for Security Police recently unveiled a groundbreaking report entitled, "Terrorism Investments of the 50 States."   This report analyzes the investment portfolios of America's leading public pension funds.  The key finding of the report is that America's 87 largest and most influential pension systems invest some $200 billion in companies that provide revenues, advanced technology, equipment and moral cover to governments that enable terrorism.  (This detailed report and related materials can be obtained at

To be sure, there is nothing illegal about investing in any of the roughly 400 companies that partner with our enemies' friends.  Nor is it illegal for such companies to do business with terrorist-sponsoring regimes.  Whether the law prohibits such activities or not, however, we believe most Americans will agree with us that they are wrong â?" wrong morally, wrong strategically and wrong financially. 

Consequently, offers a "how-to" manual showing ways in which investors, taxpayers and other citizens can bring pressure to bear to convert this $200 billion investment into leverage that can be used to help defeat terrorism.  Reduced to its essence, the idea is this: By divesting the stock of these companies, public pension systems, university endowments and even individual investors can send a powerful message to the companies that provide life-support to many of the planet's most dangerous regimes. You can choose to continue to partner with rogue state regimes that aid and abet terrorism.  Or you can do business with American investors and capital markets.  But you can no longer do both. 

As the website makes clear, divestment campaigns have already proven to be highly effective instruments.  In fact, over the last twenty years, institutional and private investors have repeatedly used their financial leverage to initiate social change.  For instance, these efforts have been used to bring pressure on stocks of companies involved in tobacco, alcohol, gambling, guns and environmentally insensitive behavior.  Arguably, the best-known example to date was the shareholder activism that used divestment to force the apartheid government of South Africa to abandon its heinous apartheid policy.  Subsequently, that government was forced to surrender power. 

By applying this model to companies doing business in terrorist-sponsoring states, we hope to achieve a success no less momentous than that accomplished in South Africa.  All it will take is for Americans like you to feel empowered to play a role in the war on terror, to make known your views against investment in terrorist-sponsoring states and to use tools like those provided by to target and maximize the effectiveness of your activism.  Please visit this informative and useful site and to join in the campaign it is now waging to defeat those who threaten not only our lives, but those of our children and grandchildren, as well.

Islamic hate in the Quran:

Qur’an 9:5 “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

Bukhari:V4B52N50“The Prophet said, ‘A single endeavor of fighting in Allah’s Cause is better than the world and whatever is in it.’”

Qur’an 9:112 “The Believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.”

Qur’an 9:29 “Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.”

Qur’an 8:39 “Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.”

Qur’an 8:39“So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).

Why invective? I know I haven't been here long, but he sounds quite credible and sincere.

It's not like posting something by an Edward Said, or shill from CAIR.

"The Freerepublic has stuff that most other sources lack, but freepers are crazier with Islam then free trade even."

Let me tell you how it is, sport:

We call it like we see it.
We're calling islam an evil, insane cult of death, and they have proven it's true on a number of occasions.

I like the words of this article, but words are worth no more than a bucket of warm spit.
When they begin to take charge of those who get their jollies by cutting the heads off people, running planes into buildings, brutalizing women, blowing up school buses and attempting to destroy America with their terrorist acts, I will say they've made a start in learning how to live in the 21st Century.
Until then, they're vermin who deserved to be eradicated.

Have you ever had the Freeper experience of formulating your response to an article and then seeing it almost word for word, last post?

On this topic, the words "Islam" and "Extremist" are so clearly associated that it's almost comic to question the association.

Muslims/Islam has a number of very difficult internal contradictions, not sure we as outsiders/infidels are capable of changing them. Not sure they themselves are capable of changing.

To me the basic issue is that they reject out of hand outside influence, infidels are the enemy, are to be lied to and are to be subservient to Islam. Therefore, when we attempt to influence or change their culture externally, they cannot accept the input we provide.

At the same time, internal criticism and self-examination are very difficult if not forbidden by Islam. The classic example is the Rushdie affair, when the death warrants were issued by Islamic clerics.

So in a nut shell, they cannot reform from within and reject outside influence. I just do not see where this leads to but some nasty ends when the west gets tired of their childish behavior. I hope I am wrong.

I don't believe that it's the extremists that are the problem. It's the core of islam that is. They all need to reject it and become atheists, xtians, hindus.. whatever.

The author Kamal is a Muslim heretic and an apostate. He wants to mouth the Infidel party line. He puts the pleasures of earth above those of the afterlife.

He knows what Allah wants done, it's written in black and white in the Koran in case there is any doubt; but Kamal would rather make nice with the Infidels than get their blood on his hands.

If you can't abide the religion then get out of it. But Kamal wants it changed to accommodate his idea of the religion. He wants an Islam Lite or a cafeteria style religion where you pick and chose what suits your ideas and lifestyle, and ignore the fundamentals of the religion.

Get out of Islam you hypocritical heretic. - Tom

Only moderate Muslims can challenge and defeat extremist Muslims. We can no longer afford to be silent. If we remain silent to the extremism within our community, then we should not expect anyone to listen to us when we complain of stereotyping and discrimination by non-Muslims. We should not be surprised when the world treats all of us as terrorists. And we should not be surprised when we are profiled at airports.

Simply put, not only do Muslims need to join the war against extremism and terror, we need to take the lead in this war.

Most of us have already stopped listening to cries of "discrimination" by the likes of CAIR. If only Keifer Sutherland had stopped listening as well.

I could say that great minds think alike but that would be giving myself too much credit. I suspect it is just that the truth about Islam is simply becoming common knowledge.

I think we need to understand what is happening when we see people like Kamal Nawash coming forth to condemn the atrocities of islam.
I don't give him or any other muzzie apologist a free pass.
