As ISIS videotaped the brutal beheading of an American journalist, its spokesman, in perfect English, warned President Obama and the American people that more deaths are coming if the US does not submit to their demands. The President’s tepid response this afternoon was disappointing.
Even at this time of sorrow for the barbaric murder of Jim Foley, President Obama could not help but to give credence to the “good cop/bad cop” routine which Muslims have consistently used to blunt our ability to effectively deal with the true threat posed by radical Islam itself.
But Obama’s approach is not new. For years Americans have endured the deception spewed out by politicians pandering for Muslim votes, our own government, and Muslim apologists that “Islam is a religion of peace”. . .
. . . even as fellow Americans were being blown to bits and murdered by Islamic terrorists, from the 9/11 attacks, to the Fort Hood massacre, and the Boston Marathon bombing.
And now, James Foley.
WWII could have been prevented and millions of lives saved if only our leaders had taken more seriously what Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf and said in his speeches.
Koran-believing Muslims consider the slaughter of Americans moral and holy.
Let’s not make the same mistake with these jihadists as we did with Hitler. Take them seriously.
The Koran commands Muslims to engage in a holy war (Jihad) in order to impose Islam and Shariah Law on the entire world.
“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.” (Koran 9:5)
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi of the Muslim Brotherhood told a youth conference in Toledo, Ohio in 1998, “We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America.”
The horrific 9/11 attacks were sanctioned by the Koran’s mandate to wage Jihad (holy war) against non-Muslims. How can anyone call Islam a religion of peace!
“[D]ismember [the American] nation, tear them apart…destroy their embassies…shoot down their planes…kill them on land, at sea, and in the air. Kill them wherever you find them.” – Islamic cleric Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman (The Blind Sheikh).
“The real matter is the extinction of America. And, God willing, it will fall to the ground.” – Taliban leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar
With the help of the Obama administration, Islamists have infiltrated the highest echelons of our government and are on the road to achieve their goal to destroy America from within -- unless you and I do something about it.
Numerous Islamic terrorism experts who used to give hundreds of presentations on Islam’s true threat to America are now banned from speaking at government counter-terrorism classes and conferences.
General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, ordered all training material used by military professional colleges and combat units scrubbed of any content offensive to Islam.
General Dempsey also caused the firing LTC Matthew Dooley as an instructor at the National Defense University teaching the course on Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism because it was offense to Islam. Up to that point LTC Dooley was a rising star in the military. (The Thomas More Law Center is representing LTC Dooley)
John Brennan (now Director of the CIA), during a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, argued that the terms “jihadist” or “jihad” should not be used to describe America’s enemies. His reason: Jihad is a holy struggle and a legitimate tenet of Islam.
Caving-in to Muslim demands, the FBI purged 876 pages and 392 presentations that were deemed offensive to Islam.
When Muslim U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan, shouting “Allahu Akbar,” killed 13 fellow soldiers and wounded 30 in the Fort Hood massacre, the government called it workplace violence. The 86-page official report on this massacre didn’t once mention Muslim or Jihad. But it mentioned workplace violence 16 times.
An Obama-appointed U.S. Attorney in Tennessee threatened to prosecute anyone who made inflammatory statements about Islam.
So how can we defeat our enemies if our leaders refuse to allow patriotic Americans to accurately identify them!
Islam is more than a religion. It is a political ideology that calls for Islamic domination of the world. Moreover, it’s incumbent on Muslims to make war upon non-Muslims until all nations submit.
And that includes the United States.
This is what the co-founder of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) said to a California audience in 1998:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
