The Black Flag of Islam

The Black Flag of Islam

I wish Islam were a religion of peace, but it is not.

I wish our view of Islam were tied to evidence-based reality, but it frequently is not.

I wish our weakness did not aid Islam’s resurgence, but it does.

I wish the cautionary pleadings from Jefferson and Adams, Churchill, and Pirenne had been heeded, and not lost in the fog of revisionist history.

I wish our ignorance did not empower those bent on our destruction, but it does.

I wish we scrutinized details, rather than look away, hope for the best, or accommodate the unknown.

I wish Islam had not destroyed the world’s art, architecture and libraries-the repositories of human knowledge, but evidence indicates that it has and it continues still.

I wish no one were denied enjoyment of art, music, laughter and of love, but sadly Islam provides evidence they are denied indeed.

I wish we could compare values across peoples but, alas, the charade of multiculturalism instructs us we cannot, for comparison implies judgment.

I wish women were safe from Islamic violence and sexual slavery, but they are not.

I wish children were cherished and nurtured in Islam, but often we can see they are not.

I wish the world were focused on protecting life and freedom from the clutches of Islamic sharia law, but it is not.

I wish our tolerance beget tolerance, but instead it breeds rage and desire for domination.

I wish Islam had not killed nearly 300,000,000 people in the last 1,400 years, but the legacy of jihad tells us it has.

I wish the jihad had not been born, or had died in the past, but it is ongoing.

I wish Islam would reform or wither; expunge the hate or recede, stamp out jihad or fade away, jettison the sharia or perish.

I wish pleasant fictions could protect us and deny flesh to the sword of jihad, but we remain exposed and vulnerable.

For if we spoke not in the wishes but in objective facts, asked reasoned questions and demanded honest answers, how much better might we understand the current threats and have already fortified our nations to repulse the enemy, thus securing our culture and human liberty from death by a thousand cuts?

4 Stages of Islamic Conquest, Plus Video

April 3, 2013

4 Stages of Islamic Conquest (LSA video)

(Video courtesy of LSA at vimeo.)

STAGE 1: INFILTRATION

Muslims begin moving to non-Muslim countries in increasing numbers and the beginning of cultural conflicts are visible, though often subtle.

  • First migration wave to non-Muslim “host” country.
  • Appeal for humanitarian tolerance from the host society.
  • Attempts to portray Islam as a peaceful & Muslims as victims of misunderstanding and racism (even though Islam is not a ‘race’).
  • High Muslim birth rate in host country increase Muslim population.
  • Mosques used to spread Islam and dislike of host country & culture.
  • Calls to criminalize “Islamophobia” as a hate crime.
  • Threatened legal action for perceived discrimination.
  • Offers of “interfaith dialogue” to indoctrinate non-Muslims.

How many nations are suffering from Islamic infiltration? One? A handful? Nearly every nation? The Islamic ‘leadership” of the Muslim Brotherhood and others wish to dissolve each nation’s sovereignty and replace it with the global imposition of Islamic sharia law. Sharia law, based on the koran, sira and hadith, condemns liberty and forbids equality and is inconsistent with the laws of all Western nations. As the author and historian Serge Trifkovic states:

“The refusal of the Western elite class to protect their nations from jihadist infiltration is the biggest betrayal in history.”

STAGE 2:   CONSOLIDATION OF POWER

Muslim immigrants and host country converts continue demands for accommodation in employment, education, social services, financing and courts.

  • Proselytizing increases; Establishment and Recruitment of Jihadi cells.
  • Efforts to convert alienated segments of the population to Islam.
  • Revisionist efforts to Islamize history.
  • Efforts to destroy historic evidence that reveal true Islamism.
  • Increased anti-western propaganda and psychological warfare.
  • Efforts to recruit allies who share similar goals (communists, anarchists).
  • Attempts to indoctrinate children to Islamist viewpoint.
  • Increased efforts to intimidate, silence and eliminate non-Muslims.
  • Efforts to introduce blasphemy and hate laws in order to silence critics.
  • Continued focus on enlarging Muslim population by increasing Muslim births and immigration.
  • Use of charities to recruit supporters and fund jihad.
  • Covert efforts to bring about the destruction of host society from within.
  • Development of Muslim political base in non-Muslim host society.
  • Islamic Financial networks fund political growth, acquisition of land.
  • Highly visible assassination of critics aimed to intimidate opposition.
  • Tolerance of non-Muslims diminishes.
  • Greater demands to adopt strict Islamic conduct.
  • Clandestine amassing of weapons and explosives in hidden locations.
  • Overt disregard/rejection of non-Muslim society’s legal system, culture.
  • Efforts to undermine and destroy power base of non-Muslim religions including and especially Jews and Christians.

Is there a pattern here? Theo van Gogh is murdered in the Netherlands for ‘insulting’ Islam; the Organization of the Islamic Conference demands ‘anti-blasphemy’ laws through the United Nations; France is set afire regularly by ‘youths’ (read Muslims); the rise of (dis-) honor killings…holocaust denial…anti-Semitism…deception re the tenets of Islam; hatred toward Christians and Jews and Hindus and Buddhists.  The pattern for all to see is the rise of Islamic intolerance and the covert/cultural jihad to remake host societies into sharia-compliant worlds – to remove host sovereignty and replace it with Islamic sharia law.  Sharia law that condemns earthly liberty and individual freedom, that forbids equality among faiths and between the sexes, that rejects the concept of nations outside the global house of Islam, that of dar al-Islam.

STAGE 3: OPEN WAR w/ LEADERSHIP & CULTURE

Open violence to impose Sharia law and associated cultural restrictions; rejection of host government, subjugation of other religions and customs.

  • Intentional efforts to undermine the host government & culture.
  • Acts of barbarity to intimidate citizens and foster fear and submission.
  • Open and covert efforts to cause economic collapse of the society.
  • All opposition is challenged and either eradicated or silenced.
  • Mass execution of non-Muslims.
  • Widespread ethnic cleansing by Islamic militias.
  • Rejection and defiance of host society secular laws or culture.
  • Murder of “moderate” Muslim intellectuals who don’t support Islamization.
  • Destruction of churches, synagogues and other non-Muslim institutions.
  • Women are restricted further in accordance with Sharia law.
  • Large-scale destruction of population, assassinations, bombings.
  • Toppling of government and usurpation of political power.
  • Imposition of Sharia law

The website www.thereligionofpeace.com keeps track of the number of violent jihad attacks as best it can. The site lists more than 14,000 attacks since September 2001. It is worth a visit. What is occurring, however, that is likely inestimable are events where muslims are bullied by other muslims for not being “muslim enough,” where non-Muslims are intimidated into doing or not doing what they desire, where remnant populations are in a death spiral simply for being non-muslim in a predominantly muslim area. Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists Animists and Atheists meet with death, property destruction or confiscation, forced conversion, rape, excessive taxation (the jizya), enslavement, riotous mobs and various other forms of islam (in-) justice at the hands of muslims in Sudan, Philippines, Kenya, Malaysia, India, etc.  And let us not forget ‘death to Apostates’ the world over.

STAGE 4: Totalitarian ISLAMIC “THEOCRACY”

Islam becomes the only religious-political-judicial-cultural ideology.

  • Sharia becomes the “law of the land.
  • All non-Islamic human rights cancelled.
  • Enslavement and genocide of non-Muslim population.
  • Freedom of speech and the press eradicated.
  • All religions other than Islam are forbidden and destroyed.
  • Destruction of all evidence of non-Muslim culture, populations and symbols in country (Buddhas, houses of worship, art, etc).

The House of Islam (“peace”), dar al-Islam, includes those nations that have submitted to Islamic rule, to the soul crushing, liberty-condemning, discriminatory law of Sharia. The rest of the world in in the House of War, dar al-harb, because it does not submit to Sharia, and exists in a state of rebellion or war with the will of ‘Allah.’ No non-Muslim state or its citizens are “innocent,” and remain viable targets of war for not believing in ‘Allah.’ The Christian, Jewish, Coptic, Hindu and Zoroastrian peoples of world have suffered under subjugation for centuries. The Dhimmi-esque are forbidden to construct houses of worship or repair existing ones, economically crippled by the heavy jizya (tax), socially humiliated, legally discriminated against, criminally targeted and generally kept in a permanent state of weakness, fear and vulnerability by Islamic governments.

It should be noted that forced conversions (Egypt) and slavery (Sudan) are still reported. Homosexuals have been hung in the public square in Iran. Young girls are married to old men. Apostates are threatened with death. “Honor” killings are routine. Women are legally second-class citizens, though Muslim males insist they are “treated better” than in the West. These more obvious manifestations may distract from some less obvious ones such as the lack of intellectual inquiry in science, narrow scope of writing, all but non-existent art and music, sexual use and abuse of youth and women, and the disregard for personal fulfillment, joy and wonder. Look into the eyes of a recently married 12 year old girl to see the consequence of the moral deprivation spawned by Islam.

IS A MORAL ASSESSMENT OF EVIL… BIGOTRY?

October 3, 2012

In any threat situation fear exists. Fear of death and manner of death, of pain, of confrontation, of shouting bearded men from an alien culture. Fear exists and is useful. Fear of islam/sharia/jihad is not a phobia. The reaction is the key… cowardice, appeasement and submission are common responses, however courage, action, insight, leadership are also possible responses to fear.

The other part of response is our lack of belief in ourselves, perhaps even an understanding of why we are not Afghanistan or Somalia or Zimbabwe or North Korea. PC – not speaking in facts, truths, data, history, nor asking difficult questions – is disarming us mentally and physically.

Is PC about not offending someone else, or not believing in yourself? Are we as a society so hollow, so empty? As Evan Sayet put it, for liberals “A moral thought is an act of bigotry.” Is a moral assessment of evil bigotry? Can I not say that rape, murder and paedophilia are bad and wrong? That totalitarian government and intrusive, oppressive, discriminatory overlords are bad for humanity? That islam is not just different, but WRONG. Wrong on liberty, wrong on equality before the law, wrong on nuturing childhood development, wrong in its restriction of art, music, human expression? Are my thoughts a crime against humanity? Or an assessment of a theo-political doctrine that is the antithesis of Western Culture and the American Constitution that I cherish?


Abode of Subjugation?

July 9, 2012

Death and terror from islam may seem like far off possibilities. Easy to dismiss, perhaps, with no personal responsibility and no moral qualms accruing to the citizen. However, islam’s goal is not to kill us all, but to convert a few and subjugate the rest.

Islam’s ideological goal is not war or terror, for those are tactics, the goal is to replace man-made law with “sacred” islamic law-the sharia, the path-so that islam reigns over Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Aside from a few hot wars, there is little to deter them; few in positions of political leadership know about sharia, fewer yet speak forthrightly about it. And since islam makes political objectives a religious duty, the global march is on.

The rule of Muslims over non-Muslims is part of sharia and is defined in the authoritative book The Reliance of theSharia, Dhimma Traveller-A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law.* A detailed description of life as an inferior being under sharia is found at “o11.0 Non-Muslim Subjects of the Islamic State (Ahl-Dhimma)” on page 607. It is described as a formal agreement of protection and if you as an infidel follow it you won’t be harmed.

What does life under the dhimmi agreement mean? Foremost you are obliged to follow the sharia whether you like to or not, understand it or not, agree with it or not (o11.3). You are a second class subject-think Copts. It means oppression-think Christians in Pakistan. It is subjugation. And what does that subjugation look like?

The subjugated person, the dhimmi under the condition of dhimmitude, will be penalized for committing adultery or theft (though generously not for drunkenness); must dress differently by command; are not greeted with “as-Salamu ‘alaykum”; must keep to the side of the street; may not build higher than or as high as the Muslims’ buildings (though if they acquire a tall house, it is not razed – such kindness!); are forbidden to openly display wine or pork, forbidden to ring church bells, forbidden to display crosses, forbidden to recite the Torah or evangelize; and of course forbidden to build new churches (o11.4). And the dhimmi must never harm a Muslim or disparage islam and certainly not draw offensive cartoons.

Imagine what this subjugation might feel like. Well, we might not need to imagine at all, for in many ways it has already arrived. Thinking twice before you speak your mind. Wondering if your on-line posts will bring account termination. As a business owner, being coerced to accommodate Muslims whether as employees or customers. Finding school texts and college courses filled with historical fantasies about islamic contributions. Needing to go to a special store to buy certain products because your local grocer was cowed into not carrying them. Watching the media contort itself to adhere to internal speech codes. Hearing your local mosque blaring the call to prayer. Being ignored by your elected representatives. And there will be the paying of the jizya – the islamic poll tax (o11.3), as you will be reduced to a tax slave. And if you elect to violate the dhimmi contract – war be upon you, kinetic or civilizational jihad.

Is this sinking in? Is the foundation for hope and tolerance and mutual respect cracking?. Whether in formal agreement or simply by intimidation, islam and sharia advance and non-Muslim cultures retreat, as they have for centuries. Your culture is now retreating. Your law is violated, your liberty cast aside, your voice silenced. Even your military and security apparatus has all but criminalized any accurate description of the current kinetic and cultural threats. Those with such knowledge have been fired, eschewed and their words purged. And is our foreign aid (derived from OUR tax dollars) being cheerfully received as jizya or tribute by Muslim-majority nations? Is our “leadership” kneeling before islam on your behalf?

This is subjugation. Dhimmitude by agreement or dhimmitude by intimidation and cultural retreat ends up being very much the same thing.

We as a nation, we as a world interested in freedom of conscience and equality before the law must speak and act to prevent the retrogression, the suppression of human liberty and annihilation of culture.

Who Decides?

In a world where words are used to obfuscate as much as illuminate, who decides when to call a spade a shovel and when it is something else?


USC Title 8, Chapter 12: Immigration and Nationality

November 15, 2011

§ 1182. Inadmissible aliens

(a) Classes of aliens ineligible for visas or admission

Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, aliens who are inadmissible under the following paragraphs are ineligible to receive visas and ineligible to be admitted to the United States:

(D) Immigrant membership in totalitarian party

(i) In general Any immigrant who is or has been a member of or affiliated with the Communist or any other totalitarian party (or subdivision or affiliate thereof), domestic or foreign, is inadmissible. [CD's Note - if we designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a totalitarian party or organization and/or sharia (ref: ROTT) a totalitarian ideology, that work toward or require, respectively, the overthrow of the US Constitution (man-made law) and its replacement with "divine" sharia perhaps we could secure the nation. All it takes is knowledge and will. (Emphasis added throughout.)]

(F) Association with terrorist organizations

Any alien who the Secretary of State, after consultation with the Attorney General, or the Attorney General, after consultation with the Secretary of State, determines has been associated with a terrorist organization and intends while in the United States to engage solely, principally, or incidentally in activities that could endanger the welfare, safety, or security of the United States is inadmissible. [Note - Executive Order 12947 (Clinton) lists terrorist organizations and has been/can be amended to expand the list.]

(G) Student visa abusers

An alien who obtains the status of a nonimmigrant under section 1101 (a)(15)(F)(i) of this title and who violates a term or condition of such status under section 1184 (l) [2] of this title is inadmissible until the alien has been outside the United States for a continuous period of 5 years after the date of the violation.

(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate… [Note - if the 2011 islamophile in the WH could be persuaded, he could immediately address numerous threats with the stroke of a pen. The next occupant of the WH must swiftly act in America's self-interest.]

Islam’s 20 Year Plan

January 30, 2011

Over the coming weeks, I will comment on each point made in a piece by Anis Shorrosh “Author sees Islam’s 20-year plan for US” as published at World Net Daily in 2003. The author provides a list of tactics and commentary as his analysis of what he calls an “Islamic invasion” of America and asks ”Will Americans continue to sleep through this invasion as they did when we were attacked on 9/11?”

Here is the author’s list, shortened slightly for space, although I have added nothing:

“1. Terminate America’s freedom of speech by replacing it with statewide and nationwide hate-crime bills.

2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities who promote Islam as the religion of African-Americans while insisting Christianity is for whites only.

3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith.

4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office to bring about favorable legislation toward Islam and support potential sympathizers by block voting.

5. Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the Internet as possible by buying the related corporations or a controlling stock.

6. Yield to the fear of the imminent shut-off of the lifeblood of America – black gold. America’s economy depends on oil and 41 percent of it comes from the Middle East.

7. Yell ”foul, out-of-context, personal interpretation, hate crime, Zionist, un- American, inaccurate interpretation of the Quran” anytime Islam is criticized or the Quran is analyzed in the public arena.

8. Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, specifically with Islamists who can articulate a marvelous and peaceful picture of Islam. Acquire government positions and get membership in local school boards. Train Muslims as medical doctors to dominate the medical field, research and pharmaceutical companies. Take over the computer industry. Establish Middle Eastern restaurants throughout the U.S. to connect planners of Islamization in a discreet way.

9. Accelerate Islamic demographic growth via:
• Massive immigration (100,000 annually since 1961).
• Use no birth control whatsoever.
• Muslim men must marry American women and Islamize them. Then divorce them and remarry every five years – since one can’t legally marry four at one time. This is a legal solution in America.
• Convert angry, alienated black inmates and turn them into militants.

10. Reading, writing, arithmetic and research through the American educational system, mosques and student centers (now 1,500) should be sprinkled with dislike of Jews, evangelical Christians and democracy. There are currently 300 exclusively Muslim schools in the U.S. which teach loyalty to the Quran, not the U.S. Constitution.

11. Provide very sizeable monetary Muslim grants to colleges and universities in America to establish ”Centers for Islamic studies” with Muslim directors to promote Islam in higher-education institutions.

12. Let the entire world know through propaganda, speeches, seminars, local and national media that terrorists have hijacked Islam, when in truth, Islam hijacked the terrorists.

13. Appeal to the historically compassionate and sensitive Americans for sympathy and tolerance towards Muslims in America who are portrayed as mainly immigrants from oppressed countries.

14. Nullify America’s sense of security by manipulating the intelligence community with misinformation. Periodically terrorize Americans with reports of impending attacks on bridges, tunnels, water supplies, airports, apartment buildings and malls.

15. Form riots and demonstrations in the prison system demanding Islamic Sharia as the way of life, not America’s justice system.

16. Open numerous charities throughout the U.S., but use the funds to support Islamic terrorism with American dollars.

17. Raise interest in Islam on America’s campuses by insisting freshman take at least one course on Islam.

18. Unify the numerous Muslim lobbies in Washington, mosques, Islamic student centers, educational organizations, magazines and papers by Internet and an annual convention to coordinate plans, propagate the faith and engender news in the media.

19. Send intimidating messages and messengers to the outspoken individuals who are critical of Islam and seek to eliminate them by hook or crook.

20. Applaud Muslims as loyal citizens of the U.S. by spotlighting their voting record as the highest percentage of all minority and ethic groups in America.”

So, does Mr. Shorrosh make valid observations? Is what he stated or predicted come to pass? I will take the next few weeks to try to determine just what is the scorecard for this “Islamic invasion”?
