MUSLIMS SPEAK OUT: THE FACTS ABOUT MUSLIMS AND THE NEED FOR ISLAM'S REFORM.

For decades now in the 56 Muslim majority countries (represented by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)) and elsewhere many, many Muslims have been taught the Saudi belief that the 7th Century Islam preached and practiced by Mohammad, the perfect man, is the "true" Islam. Whatever variance, softening or relaxing of "true" Islam over the centuries is to be discarded. Islam, therefore, is not only a proselytizing faith, it is one that uses force and violence to achieve its end, world domination and conversion of all peoples to Islam.

Currently, the Saudi way (Wahhabism or Salafism) is ascendant in the world and the result is increasing conflicts, wars and deaths. ISIS and Boko Haram (now the Islamic State in Western Africa) are sterling examples of Mohammad's Islam justifying horrible acts if they serve to advance Islam. If Mohammad did it, ISIS can do it and ISIS is doing it. Beheading infidels, setting enemies on fire, conquering and ruling by terror, destroying evidence of non-Islamic history, seizing the wealth of non-Muslims, enforcing the Islamic way of life (Sharia), treating women as chattel and infidels as lower class beings. Of particular note today with the Muslim invasion of Europe ongoing is the Islamic plan of conquest of other lands -- mass immigration, non-assimilation and outbreeding the natives. For believing Islamists (Islamic supremacists), Muslim already ensconced in non-Muslim countries, they are encouraged to infiltrate positions of power and influence in governments, the media and education to advance Islam.

Five times a day Muslims are supposed to pray to Allah and five times a day they are ordered to say in their prayers: "Guide us to the Straight Way. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians)."

So five times a day each praying Muslim ingrains in his subconscious that Allah hates the Jews and views Christians as heretics or apostates. (Islam assumes everyone, including Adam and Eve, was born a Muslim.)

Estimates vary as to the number of Muslims in the world, but the number is likely to be between 1.2 and 1.6 billion. That's 20% to 25% of the world's population. Because Muslim men can have up to four wives and Muslim wives' main duty is breeding, the Muslim population is growing faster than all other populations.

Now if Muslims are taught that Jews and Christians have angered or abandoned Allah and are to be shunned or worse, for all those who are not Jews or Christians, the price of staying alive is to convert to Islam. Otherwise, death - Hindus, Buddhists, other religionists, atheists.

There are Muslims who are trying to divorce Islam from the anger and violence of Mohammad while preserving the worship of one god but recognizing equality of all humans before that god and their rights to believe as they wish.

One such Muslim is the Canadian 􀀃Raheel Raza. In this video she lays out the statistics and the challenge. It's a great education in 15 minutes.

Recently several prominent Muslims who stand against the violence and hatred of Islam and seek reform announced the formation of the Muslim Reform Movement. They are to be commended and hopefully listened to by the hundreds of millions of Muslims indoctrinated from birth to hate all non-Muslim peoples of the world.

An American Muslim seeking to counter the messages of violence, hatred and jihad of ISIS and other such jihadist organisations is Farah Pandith, born in Kashmir, India. She emigrated to the United States with her mother, a physician, when she was one year old, settling in the Boston area. She attended and excelled at Milton Academy, Smith College (where she was class president) and the Fletcher School of Diplomacy at Tufts. She worked in Massachusetts state government, the private sector (ML Strategies, the government relations arm of the Boston-headquartered law firm of Mintz Levin) and in the George W. Bush and Obama administrations as the first U.S. representative to Muslim communities of the world operating out of the State Department. In that capacity she talked with and spoke to thousands of Muslim women and young people about American values and how Muslims can prosper in such an environment and how they too should strive for equal rights for women and all others in their own countries. What she found among almost all Muslim youth was a confusion of identity: How could they be good Muslims and good citizens of their countries when Islam taught only Sharia was to be obeyed?

Farah is now affiliated with the Council on Foreign Relations and the Kennedy School at Harvard. She has recently proposed the development of a social media information offensive by young Americans to counter the calls to jihad broadcast daily over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other online outlets. The Boston Globe carried her proposal on December 16, 2015. Farah also published in the New York Times a piece blaming Saudi Arabia for the rise of violent Islam by teaching Wahabbism or Salafism (back to the 7th Century of Muhammad for true Islam) throughout the world.

Ex-Muslim Ayaan HIrsi Ali has her own proposals for Muslim reform, which we have featured on this site.

MILITANT, VIOLENT, RADICAL ISLAM IS AT WAR WITH US

Freshman U.S. Senator Ben Sasse is a remarkable man. No doubt out of frustration with the equivocations constantly issuing from President Obama about Islam, he decided to go to the site of the Islamic massacre in San Bernardino to speak clearly to the American people about the war in which we are involved.

The war was started by a man named Mohammad in the 7th Century. He declared that he and his followers would conquer the world in the name of Islam and would use all means available to accomplish that goal. Those include terror and all kinds of violence such as murder, rape, beheading, stealing and lying, deceit and trickery. Many of his followers are taking him at his word -- jihadists -- and today ISIS, Boko Haram and other units of Mohammad's army are utilizing violence to seize territory and eliminate those who do not believe that Allah is god and that Mohammad is the messenger of God.

Those who are jihadists or support what those jihadists do are growing in number in the Muslim world, thanks to decades of indoctrination by Saudi money that true Islam is only that as preached and practiced by Mohammad in the 7th Century.

However, there are Mohammad's followers who believe that violence in the long run is counterproductive and instead adopt non-violent means to advance the cause of world conquest. These "stealth jihadists" are strategic, utilizing propaganda, lies, deceit, deception and infiltration of countries by immigration of non-assimilating Muslims and infiltration of governments and positions of influence by believers in Islamic world conquest. It is troubling that those who seem to be "stealth jihadists" nonetheless teach that Mohammad is the perfect man. For example, an imam by the name of Suhaib Webb (who was for a period of time an imam at the Islamic Society of Boston, a known terrorist hotspot for many years) who now works with young people in the Washington, D.C. area, described Mohammad recently in a teaching session as "the best one ever to have lived." (Source: <"http://www.imakespace.com/halaqa-healing-visiting-faith-part-ii/">Link since taken down.)

Finally, there are those Muslims, hopefully the vast majority, who simply worship one god they call Allah and seek to lead good lives and abide by the laws of the lands in which they live, ignoring the commands of the Koran and of Mohammad to conquer and kill and lie in the name of Islam.

The nagging problem many people have is distinguishing one from the others since lying to nonbelievers is acceptable, according to Mohammad.

DEFEATING RADICAL ISLAM IN THE U.S. AND EUROPE

The Clarion Project has identified over 80 radical mosques in the U.S. that by any rational standard should be shut down or completely reformed.

One of them is in Boston, the Islamic Center of Boston in Cambridge and its cultural center in Roxbury. A succession of radical imams has gone through the Islamic Center and radical Islamic killers, including the Boston Marathon brothers, have attended the Center.

The Center was founded with Saudi money and has taught Saudi Wahhabism from its inception. One of its co-founders was Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Islam's world leading thinker and strategist for accomplishing the conquest of the world by Islam. (From 1998-2000, Qaradawi was a board of directors member with the Islamic Society of Boston, whose founder and first president was Abdurahman Alamoudi -- an avid supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, now incarcerated on terrorism-related charges.)

Unfortunately, the local political leadership in Boston has failed to recognize the evil that has been spread for many years by the mosque and its cultural center and not only tolerated it, but provided the land at a bargain price on which the Roxbury cultural center is built. Today the Cambridge mosque and Roxbury cultural center are under the control of the Muslim American Society, a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born a Muslim in Somalia. Today, an ex-Muslim, she lives in Massachusetts and is affiliated with Harvard and the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. Her life story to date is incredible, but she has much yet to do. She has a mission.

She is fighting to wake up the world, including the political leadership in the United States still in denial, be it willful or out of ignorance, to the immediate necessity of terminating the promotion of radical Islam -- Wahhabism -- that is still taking place in Europe and the U.S. TODAY, funded by Saudi Arabia and its Gulf State allies.

Most of the mosques in the U.S., not just the 80 noted above, are funded and staffed by Saudi-trained imams teaching radical Islam - Wahhabism, the same brand of Islam taught and followed by the Saudis in Saudi Arabia and by the Muslim Brotherhood. (The only difference between the Saudis and the Muslim Brotherhood is that the Brotherhood wants the corrupt Saudis replaced as the guardians of the "holy" places of Islam.)

Both teach the Islam as practiced by its founder Mohammad in the 7th Century and both are responsible for the revival of Islamic supremacism, the Islam that will kill and make war to conquer the world. ISIS and Boko Haram are practicing what the Saudis and their imams around the world have been teaching for decades now, funded by the oil money provided by the West. The Saudis have to be called to account and their indoctrination of hundreds of millions of Muslims with Wahhabism stopped.

Ayaan was interviewed on CNN after the Paris massacre. Her presentation of the challenge and of what needs to be done is compelling.

Ayaan has written several books about Islam and her experiences, all of which are worth reading. Her most recent book, Heretic, lays out her five point plan for reforming Islam. It can be found in almost all bookstores and at Amazon. She has established a foundation to help Muslim women who are suffering and have suffered under Islam, the AHA Foundation. She is working now with the Massachusetts legislature to pass a law -- now House Bill 1530 -- making female genital mutilation a crime, which both State Representatives Sarah Peake of Provincetown and Tim Whelan of Brewster are supporting.

ISLAM TUTORIAL -- 44 MINUTES INFORMS YOU.

Want to get a lesson in basic Islamic history? These 44 minutes are among the best out there. Worth your time. It's very well done by Dr. Bill Warner.


Whether you do or do not believe that Mohammad had visions and communicated with the Angel Gabriel or made it all up, it's important to understand that more than a billion people believe this message of hate for non-believers is from Mohammad's Allah and in the goal of Islamic supremacism over the world and all its people.

THE MIGRANT JIHAD HAS BEGUN IN PARIS. MEDIA AND POLITICIANS LIE ABOUT NO CONNECTION TO ISLAM. THE PEOPLE KNOW BETTER.

What have we learned already from the most recent Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris? Denial is still alive. Even French leaders refuse to attribute the attacks to Islam. The media, virtually all of it leftist, downplays any connection to Islam. These are just violent people angry at the world, nothing to do with Islam. At most, it's some misguided few with a twisted understanding of Islam, not at all representative of true Islam.

That Mohammad was a murderer and ISIS has yet to do something Mohammad never did (except social media), that is a long stretch from the truth.

THE MIGRANT JIHAD HAS BEGUN IN PARIS
At least one jihad attacker was a “refugee.” Will European leaders reconsider their migrant policy?
November 14, 2015 Robert Spencer

paris-jihad-attack.jpg

That didn’t take long: one of the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadis who murdered at least 160 people in Paris on Friday held a Syrian passport and passed through Greece in October. In October, he was a “refugee” seeking asylum in Europe from the Syrian war zone; in November, he was murdering French civilians for the Islamic caliphate. The Migrant Jihad has begun.

French and European authorities can’t say they weren’t warned. Last February, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. And the Lebanese Education Minister recently said that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. Meanwhile, 80% of migrants who have recently come to Europe claiming to be fleeing the war in Syria aren’t really from Syria at all.

So why are they claiming to be Syrian and streaming into Europe? An Islamic State operative gave the answer when he boasted in September, shortly after the migrant influx began, that among the flood of refugees, 4,000 Islamic State jihadis had already entered Europe. He explained their purpose: “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, inshallah.” These Muslims were going to Europe in the service of that caliphate: “They are going like refugees,” he said, but they were going with the plan of sowing blood and mayhem on European streets. As he told this to journalists, he smiled and said, “Just wait.”

MUSLIM INVADERS STREAMING INTO EUROPE

Part of this news video was shot at 4 in the morning.


|

ISLAM IS A THREAT TO EUROPE, THE U.S. AND THE WORLD

The greatest threat to the world today is Islam.

It currently is an urgent large and growing threat to Europe because of the tidal wave of uninvited immigrants from Muslim lands who have been indoctrinated in Islam from birth. Now, hundreds of thousands. It could be millions if Europe does not put barriers in place and say enough. How many terrorists are among them?

Western European nations are already experiencing grave problems with their existing Muslim populations, which have in large part proven to be totally incompatible with the existing Judeo-Christian and humanist cultures of the West. It is not too late to halt the islamization of Europe, but it is late in the day. The threat to our freedoms must be recognized and the lines of battle must be drawn now.

The same kind of Islamic invasion is planned for the U.S., but it is proceeding more slowly because of the oceans that separate us from Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Make no mistake: Already Islamic supremacists have established beachheads in our federal government as did the communists prior to WWII. Islamic organizations such as mosques, cultural centers and propaganda units such as CAIR established and funded by Saudi Arabia are already chipping away at the fabric of America. As revealed in a recently discovered Muslim Brotherhood document, the plan is to subvert the U.S. from within so that one day Sharia will rule over the Constitution. So the need to take action now is just as urgent as it is for Europe.

Sweden has been the most welcoming country for Muslims coming from North Africa and the Middle East. Malmo is the city which has the greatest concentration of Muslims in Sweden. It is now the epicenter of violent crime in the country.

Rapes have exploded, no Swedish woman is safe on the streets, the elderly are attacked and robbed, riots and arson are commonplace. Muslims are expressing their superiority over the infidels and demanding more and more. Few work, welfare is the income of the overwhelming majority, who consider it tribute due from infidels to their superiors, the followers of Mohammad.

Sweden is being hard hit by the current invasion, since Sweden and Germany are the preferred destination because of their generous welfare systems. Even the left-wing leaders of Sweden are warning that Sweden is headed for collapse: Its resources are being stretched and its ability to maintain public order is imperiled. As Muslim crime and terrorizing grows, the natives are becoming more and more angry, as evidenced by the recent backlash killings in Trollhattan, where a heavy Muslim presence has led to fear of threats, robbery and violence among the native population.

The most consistent articulate voice in Europe warning of the danger of Islam is Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom, In this 2014 video Wilders is speaking in Malmo at the invitation of the Free Speech Society. He spells out without equivocation the nature of Islam and of its inventor Mohammad and the threat Islam poses to our freedoms. He laid out five principles to preserve the culture of Sweden and other European countries and halt the islamization of Europe:

1. Defend freedom of speech. He urged adoption of a law or constitutional provision similar to the American First Amendment.
2. Put an end to the ideal of cultural relativism. All cultures are not equal. The Judeo-Christian and humanist culture of the West is far superior to the barbaric culture of Islamic lands.
3. Stop Islamic immigration. No more mosques should be built. Shut down Islamic schools. Require assimilation. Deport Muslim criminals.
4. Restore the primacy of the nation state over the bureaucracy of the European Union.
5. Support Israel, which is on the front lines of the fight against Islamic supremacy.

All but #4 make sense for the U.S. as well.

The video is 45 minutes in length. It's well worth the time.

ISIS INSPIRES PALESTINIAN YOUTHS' DESCENT INTO SAVAGERY.

A Palestinian scholar blames the sudden outbreak of stabbings of Israeli children and senior citizens on ISIS. The barbarism of the followers of the 7th Century Mohammad is turning ordinary young people into savages.

ISIS Fires Up Palestinians

by Bassam Tawil
October 19, 2015

The current wave of stabbings of Jews in Israel is an attempt to imitate Islamic State terrorists, who have been using knives to behead many Muslims and non-Muslims. In most attacks, the Palestinian terrorists focused on the victims' throats and necks. They are trying to replace Islamic State jihadis as the chief "butchers" of humans in the Middle East.

How can our leaders in Ramallah accuse Jews of "contaminating" the Aqsa Mosque with their "filthy feet" at a time when our youths burn a religious site such as Joseph's Tomb? Palestinian Authority security forces, which maintain a tight grip on Nablus, did nothing to prevent the arson attack.

The attacks are an attempt to erase history so that Jews will not be able to claim any religious ties to the land. This is exactly what the Islamic State is doing in Syria and Iraq.

Mahmoud Abbas and other Palestinian leaders are lying. This is not a struggle against "occupation" or a wall or a checkpoint. This is an Islamic State-inspired jihad to slaughter Jews and wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

By now, it has become clear that our young Palestinian men and women have learned a lot from the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.

This new "intifada" that some Palestinians are now waging against Israel should be seen in the context of the wider jihad that is being waged by the Islamic State, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Boko Haram and Al-Qaeda against the "infidels, Zionists, apostates, Crusaders" and against non-extremist Muslims.

The tactics employed by Palestinian youths over the past two weeks show that they are doing their utmost to copy the crimes and atrocities committed by the Islamic State in Syria, Iraq, Libya and other Arab countries.

Although the Islamic State is not physically present in the West Bank or Jerusalem (largely thanks to the efforts of the Israel Defense Forces and other Israeli security agencies), there is no denying that its spirit and ideology are hovering over the heads of many of our young men and women.

The current wave of stabbings of Jews in Israel and the West Bank is an attempt to imitate Islamic State terrorists who have been using knives to behead many Muslims and non-Muslims during the past two years.

Like the Islamic State, many of the Palestinian terrorists who recently stabbed Jews saw themselves as jihadis acting in the name of Allah, the Quran and the Prophet Mohammed. This was evident by the Palestinian terrorists' cries of "Allahu Akbar!" ["Allah is Greater!"] as they pounced on their victims. Our young men and women must have been watching too many videos of Islamic State jihadis shouting "Allahu Akbar!" as they beheaded or burned their victims.

The stabbing attacks that were carried out in the past two weeks were actually attempts to slit the throats of Jews, regardless of their age and gender. In most instances, the terrorists were aiming for the upper part of the body, focusing on the victims' throats and necks.

The Palestinian terrorists are now trying to replace Islamic State jihadis as the chief "butchers" of human beings in the Middle East. For now, they seem to be partially successful in their mission.

Our young men and women have learned from the Islamic State not only the practice of stabbing the "infidels," but also how to destroy religious sites. On Thursday night, scores of Palestinians attacked and torched Joseph's Tomb in the West Bank city of Nablus, in scenes reminiscent of the Islamic State's destruction of ancient and holy sites in Syria and Iraq.

Last week, Palestinians torched Joseph's Tomb in Nablus (left), in scenes reminiscent of the Islamic State's destruction of holy sites in Syria and Iraq, such as the Armenian Church in Deir Zor (right).

The shrine was set on fire for no reason other than that it is revered as the tomb of a Jewish biblical figure. This is a site frequented by Jewish worshippers, although it is under the control of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its security forces in Nablus. It is worth noting that agreements signed between Israel and the Palestinians guarantee access for Jewish worshippers to Joseph's Tomb, and there were assurances to the Israelis that the PA could be trusted to safeguard the site.

What the Palestinians did to Joseph's Tomb is no different from what the Islamic State and other terrorist groups have been doing to holy sites and archaeological sites in Syria and Iraq. The Palestinians who attacked Joseph's Tomb were obviously influenced by the crimes of the Islamic State against religious and ancient sites.


Joseph's tomb.jpg


What is still not clear is why the Palestinian Authority security forces, which maintain a tight grip on Nablus, did nothing to prevent the arson attack.

How can our leaders in Ramallah accuse Jews of "contaminating" the Aqsa Mosque with their "filthy feet" at a time when our youths burn a religious site such as Joseph's Tomb?

This is not the only Jewish holy site that has been targeted by Palestinians in recent years. While our leaders are screaming day and night about Jews "invading" and "desecrating" the Aqsa Mosque, Palestinians from Bethlehem have been throwing stones, petrol bombs and explosive devices at Rachel's Tomb near the city. This has been going on for several years now, in an attempt to kill Jewish worshippers and the Israeli soldiers guarding Rachel's Tomb.

The attacks on Joseph's and Rachel's Tombs in Nablus and Bethlehem are part of a Palestinian-Islamic campaign to destroy Jewish holy sites and deny any Jewish link to the land. The attacks are an attempt to rewrite history so that Jews will not be able to claim any religious ties to the land. This is exactly what the Islamic State is doing these days in Syria and Iraq: "erasing history that lets us to learn from the past."

The terror campaign that we have been waging against Israel in the past few weeks shows that the Islamic State and Islamic fundamentalism and fascism have invaded the minds and hearts of many of our young men and women.

We have turned the conflict with Israel into a jihadi war, the goal of which is to slaughter Jews, erase their history and expel them from this part of the world. This is not an intifada. This is brutal killing spree targeting Jews of all ages, including a 13-year-old boy, a 72-year-old woman and a 78-year-old man.

President Mahmoud Abbas and other Palestinian leaders are lying to us -- and the rest of the world -- when they describe the stabbing attacks against Jews as a "peaceful popular resistance."

This is not a struggle against "occupation" or a wall or a checkpoint. It is time to recognize that this is an Islamic State-inspired jihad to slaughter as many Jews as possible and wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

When and if the Islamic State is finally eliminated or disappears, the Palestinians will emerge as the successors of one of the most brutal and murderous Islamic gangs that has surfaced in modern history. (Highlighting added.)

MUSLIM JOURNALIST: HOW TO DEAL WITH THE MUSLIM INVASION OF EUROPE

Muslim Immigration and How to Handle It
by Uzay Bulut
Ms. Bulut was born and grew up a Muslim. She is a free lance Turkish journalist living in Ankara, the nation's capital. She offers some concrete suggestions to Europeans about dealing with the intimidating waves of Muslim immigrants flooding their countries.

Executive Summary

The political history of Muslim states has often been restricted to two options. They have either been ruled by nationalist ("secular") oppressive regimes, or Islamist oppressive regimes. Unfortunately, many people in Middle East have so much affinity for political Islam that they do not realize that political Islam is the root cause of their problems. That attitude is the main reason they cannot get rid of their backward and violent regimes, or make cultural or scientific progress.

Sadly, the founder of Islam did not leave behind a humanitarian message to respect people of other faiths and to be on an equal footing with them. What the the Islamic State (ISIS) and other barbaric Islamist groups have been doing to people is horrific beyond words; but it is meticulously based on Islamic scriptures. So it is not the West causing these human tragedies; it is Islam and Muslims.

Members of a culture that murders intellectuals who try to present ideas to improve their societies do not have the moral right to blame its backwardness and bloodthirsty culture on the West.

Muslims should not try to turn Europe, which is being so generous to them, into more Muslim lands. We already have far too much barbarity, misogyny and persecution in the Muslim world. Muslims could do our people an enormous service if instead they tried harder to turn the Muslim lands into Europe-like places.

The Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders has suggested that people who have a passport from an Islamic country, in addition to a Dutch passport, should sign an anti-Sharia declaration. It should state that they do not want to introduce Sharia (Islamic law) into the Netherlands, and that they repudiate all the violent passages in the Koran. New refugee-candidates might also sign such a declaration. If they support Islamic rule, then Europe is probably not the best place for them.

These stipulations are not "discrimination against Muslims," any more than requiring guests to your home to behave politely is discrimination against friends. This is merely the same way that rulers in the Middle East -- the Saudis, and Emiratis, for example -- regard foreigners and visitors. The proposal is a rational and legitimate way to protect European civilization and the lives and liberties of all of its citizens.

Europe needs to protect itself and its liberties unapologetically. Why should Europe be expected to commit suicide and turn into yet another Muslim land where lives and liberties have no value? The ancestors of Europeans paid an extremely high price over many years to give their descendants what they have today. European governments need to protect the security of their citizens as well as their cultural identity and freedoms.

The West should support Kurdistan in its struggle for independence. Such support would be one of the most important steps not only to liberate a progressive and heroic nation but also to help reduce the refugee tragedy in the region.

Her Advice to Europe

The heartbreaking photos of Muslim refugees trying to reach Europe have intensified a controversial and urgent issue: The issue of Muslim immigration and how the world should handle it.

"There are 20 million refugees waiting at the doorstep of Europe," said Johannes Hahn, EU Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations.

Many claim that Europe, facing the crisis produced by the huge influx of Muslim migrants and refugees fleeing mainly Syria and Iraq, should open its doors. But given the realities in Europe and the Muslim world, this suggestion may well be harmful to both the West and to the Muslim world.

One of the most common arguments is that Europe is not doing enough for the Muslim refugees and is actually responsible for the turmoil in Syria as well as the rest of the Muslim world.

The current wars in the Middle East, however, are not the fault of the West. Obviously, the Obama administration and European governments must do more to stop the bloodbath in the Muslim world, but to say that the wars in the region are the product of Western intervention or some other Western "plots" just shows how clueless and ignorant the people who make such claims are about the history of Islam.

Islamic scriptures call on Muslims to wage war on other religions to bring them under submission to Islam. Muhammad, the founder of Islam, said that he was "ordered by Allah to fight men until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger."

In Mecca, Muhammad advocated "la iqra fiddin" -- "[there should be] no compulsion in religion." But when his gift of Islam was not readily accepted, he began to dismiss peaceful co-existence, his message became increasingly intolerant and he resorted to militancy.

When Muhammad moved to Medina, after a more benign life in Mecca, Islam was turned into a military force that apparently intended to rule all aspects of society, including practices such as sex slavery, child marriages, forced conversions, wife beating and commands to kill "the unbelievers." Especially in the later parts of the Quran, Mohammad fully encourages violence against non-Muslims, and their eternal damnation.

Sadly, the founder of Islam did not leave behind a humanitarian message to respect people of other faiths and to be on equal footing with them. By the time Muhammad lived in Medina, his new religion openly advocated dominating others through subjugation, rape, murder and forced conversion. People who followed his teachings first became violent toward peaceful communities and then toward other people around.

IN FIVE MINUTES BECOME AN EXPERT ON ISLAM'S WAR ON THE WORLD.

Understanding the threat of radical Islam or "Islamism" can be accomplished in less than five minutes by watching this video.

Radical Islam is the Islam of its founder Muhammad. The Islam that Muhammad practiced and taught in the 7th Century is exactly what groups such as ISIS, Boko Haram and al-Shabaab are part of today. Islam is war to take over the world piece by piece and to make all people live by the rules of living developed by Muhammad -- Sharia, often called Islamic law. But Sharia is much more than a legal system, it affects every aspect of life. The warriors of ISIS are seeking to impose Sharia on everyone they conquer. When the entire world has been conquered by Islam, there will be peace and the end times will begin.

Right now the invasion of Europe by young Muslims is in full swing. And Europe is letting them in! Providing ships and boats even.

ISLAM IS AT WAR WITH THE WEST, BUT EUROPE AND THE U.S. PRETEND IT ISN'T SO.

Three articles appeared in the Sunday papers that correctly capture the war being waged against the non-Muslim world at the present time. It is a war that began 13 centuries ago, that has ebbed and flowed and is now approaching high tide.

In the first article appearing in today’s Cape Cod Times, New York Times’ columnist Thomas Friedman, while not exactly downplaying the Iran threat but raising unjustified hope of its possibly changing, nails Saudi Arabia as the Number One cause of the return of current-day Islam to its 7th Century murderous roots. The Saudis have been funding the teaching of its do-as-Mohammad-did (Wahhabi) Islam for decades throughout the Muslim world, Europe and the United States. 9/11 was not an aberration.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/02/opinion/thomas-friedman-our-radical-islamic-bff-saudi-arabia.html

In a lengthy essay in the Wall Street Journal, Walter Russell Mead paints an accurate portrait of what the re-emergence of murderous 7th Century Islam is doing to the Middle East, causing some to flee in terror to Europe for safety and terrorists to rush to Europe in hopes of conquest, and the feckless inability to defend Western values by a politically correct, multicultural European elite. Care to guess who will win?

http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-roots-of-the-migration-crisis-1441995372

As for the U.S., former mayor New York Rudy Giuliani does his best to warn Americans that the threat of Islam is growing and is being ignored by the Obama administration to our peril.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-islamist-menace-shadowing-this-sept-11-1441929416?mod=trending_now_4

Saudi Arabia and Iran are our ideological enemies. They are both dedicated to our destruction. Both seek to be the leader of Islam's march to world domination. Their potential principal obstacle is the United States. We must learn to engage them in battle on every front, militarily, economically, intellectually and spiritually. We must recognize that Islam wages war in many ways -- terrorism, mass immigration, as is the case with Europe right now, infiltration of governments, media, academia and prisons, as is the case in the U.S. right now, to make converts and influence policy.

Islam's sole reason for being is war, to seize territory, to convert, subjugate or kill those in the way. The Koran is a manual of war. Mohammad did all these things and raided and plundered and exacted onerous taxes to let infidels live to support his wars. His followers have done the same for centuries, though they eventually ran out of subjects to pay the onerous special taxes. Without oil revenues, Islam would have continued to fade into irrelevance. The lure of joining an army to kill and rape would not have been enough to keep Islam going without the money from oil provided by the Saudis and the Gulf countries.

It's time to recognize reality and organize ourselves properly to defeat this menace. We cannot have peace if an enemy is warring against us. But our leaders are leading us in denial. It's so much easier to pretend it isn't so.

We have the resources. What we lack is the will.

A SAUDI SOLUTION TO THE MIDEAST REFUGEE CRISIS

Just a thought:

Saudi Arabia should be welcoming all those Muslims fleeing from Muslim countries with failed economies or because of wars being waged between Muslim groups. The Saudis have the money and wide open spaces. And they are geographically and ideologically closer to the problem states than Europe. That is to say, there is more compatibility with the beliefs of the vast majority of those on the move. Since the Saudis won't accept Christians and others being persecuted in Muslim lands, Christians and the others can go to Europe and be welcomed there.

OBAMA IS FLOODING THE U.S. WITH ISLAMIC SUPREMACISTS FROM VIOLENT ISLAMIC COUNTRIES.

The UN Refugee Desk, controlled by a Muslim organization, with the aid of Obama and his State Department, is flooding the United States with Muslims brought up to hate, denigrate and subdue or kill us. From violent Islamic countries like Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Libya. How many true believers will we get who will wind up leaving to join ISIS or instituting terror attacks here?

We can see what the Muslim invasion is doing to Europe, which is defenseless as migrants storm into it by land and sea. A casual visitor to any large western European city will be appalled to see what is happening. Read Europe news; it's worse.

Though we're separated by thousands of miles from Muslim territories Obama is holding the door open for the same kind of Muslim invasion of the U.S. Watch this four minute video to learn yet another way that Obama is changing America for the worse.

Displaced Muslims should be relocated to stable Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia and Indonesia, not sent to the U.S. and Europe.

WHAT A DEAL THAT IRAN DEAL IS!

IRAN NUCLEAR BOMB PROGRAM MUST BE STOPPED!

The U.S. must not cooperate with Iran's getting nuclear weapons. But that seems to be what Obama is doing. He is trusting Iran to become a rational member of the international community if we are nice to them. That's insanity. Every day they repeat their vow to destroy Israel and shout "Death to America." They're serious. We're not.

The survival of millions is at stake.

Watch the video and do what it asks you to do. If enough people lean on their elected members of Congress, who knows? It's easy and it isn't a fundraiser.

Do it.

SOMALIS IN U.S. WANT SHARIA AND PREFER TO LIVE IN SOMALIA

Some former Somalis in Minneapolis were interviewed on Islamic law and where they wished to live.

Most wished they were back in Somalia and all (but one?) wanted to live under Sharia, Islamic law, rather than the laws of the United States.

GERMANY UNDER THREAT FROM HOME-GROWN JIHADISTS

It's astonishing that European nations are experiencing so many problems with their Muslim immigrants but are still allowing more in.

This report from Germany is blood-chilling. It could be happening here, in the U.S.

Germany's "Demagogue of Armed Jihad"
by Soeren Kern
May 26, 2015

-- "We want your blood. It tastes so wonderful." — Denis Cuspert, German rapper-turned jihadist.

-- "In Germany, sleeper cells lie in wait... Even while you're in Europe, do your jihad. Allah is going to reward you. Paradise is waiting." — Denis Cuspert.


A German rapper-turned-jihadist has called on his followers to carry out terrorist attacks in Germany.

In a high-quality video released by the Islamic State in April, Denis Cuspert also warns that terrorist sleeper cells have infiltrated Germany and are ready for activation.

German authorities say they are taking the threats seriously: Cuspert — who has been likened to Nazi Minister for Propaganda Joseph Goebbels — has become the Islamic State's chief propagandist in the German language and is unusually capable of inspiring disillusioned young Germans to become jihadists.

Cuspert's transformation from rapper to jihadist is documented in a 25-page analysis produced by the German intelligence service, which has described him as "quite simply the most interesting propagandist of the Salafist movement in the German-speaking realm." ["Salafist" refers to the back-to-Mohammad movement "reform" begun by the Saudis. It is what ISIS does, what Muhammad did in the 7th Century, wage war to seize land and subdue and kill non-believers.]

Cuspert, 39, was born in Berlin to a German mother and a Ghanaian father. The father abandoned the family while Cuspert was still a baby and his mother remarried an African-American military officer, with whom Cuspert had a deeply troubled relationship.

Perhaps in search of an identity, Cuspert in 1995 embarked on a rapping career in which he sought to imitate American hip-hop artists. Also known by his stage name, Deso Dogg, he eventually ended up in prison for a variety of offenses, including drug-related crimes. Over the ensuing years, he released four albums, but after narrowly surviving a car accident in October 2008, he began to take an interest in Salafist Islam.

In 2010, Cuspert gave up his rap career and formally embraced Islam. He dropped his stage name in favor of the Islamic name Abou Maleeq and began singing Islamic battle hymns known as nasheeds, in which he displayed an obsession with martyrdom.

Cuspert's "pop jihad" nasheeds drew attention after Arid Uka, a Muslim Kosovo Albanian from Frankfurt, murdered two U.S. airmen and wounded two others at Frankfurt Airport in March 2011. In court, Uka testified that just before carrying out the attack, he was listening to a nasheed calling for attacks against non-Muslims on his iPod. He said he had also been influenced by a video on Cuspert's Facebook page.

Meanwhile, Cuspert became involved with Mohamed Mahmoud, an Austrian-born Islamist who founded Millatu Ibrahim, a Salafist organization, in the Germany city of Solingen in 2011. The group called on German Muslims to reject German law and follow Islamic Sharia law instead.

The German government banned Millatu Ibrahim in May 2012, and Mahmoud, also known as Abu Usama Al-Gharib, fled to Egypt to reestablish the group there. "I am going to return to Germany in only one condition, as a conqueror to introduce Sharia in Germany," Mahmoud said at the time.

In a three-minute video, a German Salafist linked to Mahmoud calling himself Abu Azzam vowed revenge and called for the assassination of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. He warned:

"Our troops are already there [in Germany], you will bleed, your heads will roll ... Oh Allah, give the German people what they deserve!

"Looking back at the Arab spring, we are looking forward to a European summer. We want to see Obama and Merkel dead."

Mahmoud eventually persuaded more than a dozen German Salafists to join him in Egypt at a time when the Muslim Brotherhood was ascendant there. Among them was Cuspert, who slipped out of Germany in June 2012 even though he was being surveilled by German intelligence.

After arriving in Egypt, Cuspert obtained firearms training at militant camp in Mersa Matruh, situated about 200 km east of the Libyan border. He then travelled to Libya to train with Islamic extremists before becoming a jihadist in Syria in early 2013.

In August 2013, Cuspert appeared in a four-minute video in which he expressed his desire to die as a suicide bomber, presumably in Germany. He can be heard rapping the lyrics:

"I wish for my death and cannot wait for it, armed with bombs and grenades; Inside the barracks of the crusaders, pressing the button, al-Jannah [paradise], al-Jannah; I detonate the bomb in the crowd, pressing the button, al-Jannah, al-Jannah; Right in the center of town or in the subway, pressing the button, al-Jannah, al-Jannah; With a smile directly to my Creator, pressing the button, al-Jannah, al-Jannah; Remember your obligations and fear Allah, pressing the button, al-Jannah, al-Jannah."
Cuspert, who now uses the alias Abu Talha Al-Almani (Abu Talha the German), is believed to have formally joined the Islamic State sometime in April 2014. He was also rumored to have been killed in Syria that same month, but in November 2014, he appeared in an Islamic State video. He was holding a severed head and explaining in German that the victims had fought against the Islamic State and "that is why they received the death penalty."

In the latest video, dated April 2015, Cuspert can be heard rapping the following lyrics in German:

"To the enemies of Allah. Where are your troops? We can no longer wait. O Allah, destroy them! Grant us victory over them. Take from us. Make us honorable. Take from our blood. Fisabilillah [One who fights for the cause of Allah].

"Now listen, you dogs of hell. The words have been written. The ink has dried. The judgment has been made. Your end approaches.

"Mutilated soldiers are coming back to your homeland close to desperation. Eyes are being lost. Bodies without legs. We want your blood. It tastes so wonderful.

"In France, it has been proven by deeds. In Germany, sleeper cells lie in wait. The brothers are operating. Terrorizing the Kafir [nonbeliever].

"We have smelled blood. The revenge for the messenger. For our sisters. For our noble brothers. And all the martyrs.

"A truck filled with explosives. Loving farewell. Don't be sad my mother. Your son is rushing to Allah.

"Allah has called you. There is no way out. Fill your car with gas. My brother, hurry up! Your neighbor is a Kafir. Slandering the messenger. Take a big knife and give him what he rightly deserves!

"Even while you're in Europe, do your jihad. Allah is going to reward you. Finish the dirty one. Paradise is waiting. Do it with sincerity.

"We have only one life. And it is Allah who gave it to us. Time is running out. So brother, struggle hard. Deeds make the difference. The earth is shaking. Khilafah [Caliphate], what a blessing. A favor from Allah.

"They all die for one cause. You either die or gain victory. There is no god but Allah."

German authorities are now looking for ways to hinder Cuspert's potential return to Europe. On February 8, Die Welt newspaper revealed that German public prosecutors were investigating 83 German jihadists, including Cuspert, for war crimes, for atrocities committed in the name of the Islamic State. If convicted, Cuspert, upon returning to Germany, could face life in prison.

On February 9, the U.S. State Department said that it had designated Cuspert a "global terrorist," and on March 11, Switzerland's State Secretariat for Economic Affairs added Cuspert to a list of individuals off-limits to the country's banks, due to alleged ties to terrorist activities.

Such measures, however, are not likely to deter Cuspert from producing more propaganda videos. They arguably pose more of a threat to Germany than his physical presence there.

The German intelligence service sums it up this way:

"As a rapper and as a jihadist, Cuspert represents authenticity. This 'battlefield credibility' contributes to his popularity within the international jihadi-Salafi scene. ... Cuspert's ostentatious but authentic appearance in his propaganda videos, together with the attractiveness of a currently victorious Islamic State, has considerable mobilizing power for radicalized individuals in Germany who want to travel to Syria. His demagogic propaganda lures young people with the ostensible promise of paradise but leads them to ruin.

"Jihadi-Salafist propaganda of the kind produced by Cuspert is freely accessible on the Internet and carries the risk that people will become radicalized and respond not only to the call to travel to fight abroad, but also to support terrorist groups such as the Islamic State here in Germany. As a consequence, the Salafist scene is poised to become increasingly violent while also growing in numbers."

WE ARE WITNESSING A REFORMED ISLAM - BACK TO AS IT WAS IN MUHAMMAD'S TIME

Our government and media keep talking about Boko Haram and ISIS as practicing a perverted or distorted or false form of Islam. Indeed, President Obama has gone so are to say that the atrocities of ISIS have nothing to do with Islam. Yet the President of Turkey, himself a "devout" Muslim, rejects the idea of a "radical Islam" or "Islamism," saying Islam is Islam.

Here's a question: What is ISIS doing that Mohammad did not do? Social media. Anything else?

There are those who say Islam desperately needs a reform. One is the courageous president of Egypt al-Sisi. Another is the courageous ex-Muslim Aayan Hirsi Al. In her excellent new book Heretic she proposes five things that will do the trick. Looking at her recommendations closely, she seems to be calling for the abandonment of Islam, not reform. Maybe a good idea, but Islam says kill those who leave Islam. Her book nonetheless is still worth reading. The grave danger of Islam to western civilization comes through loud and clear.

Raymond Ibrahim, a Coptic Christian scholar of Islam, has news for us: What we are experiencing right now with ISIS and Boko Haram is reformed Islam.

Islamic traditions introducing some softening accommodations to modernity over the centuries are now being cast aside.

The reformers insist that true Islam is that as practiced, lived and preached by Mohammad and his immediate followers. Rolling back to the 7th Century then is reform, but not in the way westerners think of reform.

The reformers appear to be winning.

While it is constantly noted by commentators that while almost all terrorists are Muslims, not all Muslims are terrorists. Indeed, it is said, the vast majority of Muslims do not support such actions.

But what do we make of a just released al-Jazeera poll of Arabic speakers: 81% approve of what ISIS is doing.

The growing back-to-Mohammad consensus in the 85% of the Muslim world that is Sunni is directly attributable to the Saudis. Follow the path of Mohammad exactly. Universally, Muslims are taught he is the model, he is "the best one who ever lived." (e.g., Suhaib Webb, April 27, 2015). His message is for all times. Right and wrong revolve around whether or not Mohammad did "it" or approved of "it."

Hard to argue with ISIS on doctrinal grounds.

Of course, not all Muslims will pursue the goal of world Islamic supremacism and even if they do it will probably not be with violence and deceit.

What is unsettling is the lack of condemnation by Muslims and Muslim majority nations of the atrocities committed by al-Shabaab, Boko Haram and ISIS as they conquer territory and massacre Christians and followers of other faiths. The recent al-Jazeera poll of Arabic speakers is shocking. What would a similar poll of all al-Jazeera viewers say?.

The back-to-Mohammad reform has been emerging over the past few decades as Saudi Arabia has spent tens if not hundreds of billions of our oil dollars in publishing and in establishing and supporting Islamic schools and centers throughout the world educating Muslims on what the demands of Mohammad were -- and that they are for all times.

The main concessions to modernity now is only to employ modern tools such as cellphones and social media in pursuit of the jihad of Mohammad. The vast majority of references in the Koran are to military or physical, not spiritual, jihad.

For much of the almost 1400 years of Islam the holy books were only in Arabic, which few could read. Now they are available in every language and today's Muslims are now aware of the requirements of jihad for every Muslim -- advance Islam by all means available until Islam is supreme in the world.

Muslims are taught, indoctrinated, that they are superior beings because they possess Islam, the one true faith. So Jews and Christians are filth. Hindus, Buddhists, even worse.

Raymond Ibrahim's revelations are depressing, but need to be absorbed if we are to mobilize to defeat this assault on our civilization and beliefs. We are at war. We are under attack, there are no rational grounds for denying it, although our President continues to do so.

Islam’s ‘Reformation’ Is Already Here—and It’s Called ‘ISIS’

Raymond Ibrahim

The idea that Islam needs to reform is again in the spotlight following the recent publication of Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s new book, Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now. While Ali makes the argument that Islam can reform—and is in desperate need of taking the extreme measures she suggests to do so—many of her critics offer a plethora of opposing claims, including that Islam need not reform at all.

EX-MUSLIM WINNING CARTOONIST TALKS ABOUT LEAVING ISLAM.

The winner of the free speech Draw Mohammad contest in Garland, Texas Bosch Fawstin was born a Muslim, but left it because of Islam's teachings of hate.

In accepting his award he made a few comments about growing up in a "moderate Muslim" household that are worth thinking about. It isn't just the jihad against those who do not follow Mohammad that Islam inspires and commands that's a problem. It's the poison that infects attitudes even in the homes of moderate Muslins. Listen:

Megyn Kelly and Bill O'Reilly clashed on the air on whether the contest should have been held at all. O'Reilly said it was "common sense" that some Muslims might mount a violent attack and it would be best to lay off. Kelly argued that O'Reilly was allowing Muslins to define the limits of the First Amendment. Kelly is right.

MUSLIM INVASION OF EUROPE BEING REPLICATED IN THE UNITED STATES.

Many of us are aware of the flood of mostly Muslim immigrants who daily are trying to get into Europe illegally by reports in the news of boatloads "rescued" off Italy or Libya, or overloaded boats capsizing and many drowning.

In almost all cases they are fleeing from Muslim countries which are economic basket cases and riddled with corruption, crime and civil strife.

European citizens are saying "Enough," but the boatloads keep coming and the UN and the Eurocrats say they must be rescued and brought into Europe for humanitarian reasons. Try to take the boats back to Libya and whoever is in charge of that port in Libya won't let them land. Most of the migrants have destroyed their papers so they can't be linked to their home countries and sent back if they make it into Europe.

This invasion of Europe by Muslims began way back in the 1970s as a harebrained scheme of Eurocrats to get temporary young workers for their booming economies. They came, but had little interest in doing work and no interest in going home.

Economies in Europe are no longer booming and the European Muslim population is estimated to be 50 million of which 80% are enjoying welfare without work This is a huge burden on European taxpayers.

And, as we have learned, the Muslims came to Europe not to integrate, not to assimilate, not to become British or French or German, but to live separately in their own neighborhoods just as they did in their former countries. This is all part of the grand plan of Islam to conquer Europe without firing a shot.

France now has over 700 so-called "no go zones" which are in effect controlled by the Muslim inhabitants where non-Muslims are not welcome and may be in peril. Steadily, Muslims are gaining influence and power as their numbers increase. The violence which is part of Islam back home asserts itself in these European locales. Attacks on Jews have become routine in many European cities. Rape is exploding. Fear is growing as Islam flexes its muscles. The police look the other way as young "infidel" girls are sexually exploited by Muslim sex rings.

The Muslim invasion of the United States has been going on for years, but is not as well known. Ever wonder why there is a large Somali community in Lewiston, Maine? A federal resettlement program fed by a UN refugee division under Islamic control sends Muslims to America and the federal government decides where to put them down.

Watch this video and get the story As the speaker says, there are other federal programs feeding Muslims -- without any screening whatsoever -- into our country. The U.S. is in line to get hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria, most of whom, you can bet, will not be persecuted Christians. Muslims are Obama's priority.

Islam through its leaders is waging war with us and we are not defending ourselves or fighting back.

The grand architect of the invasion plan for Europe is still alive, still directing the plan of conquest. Currently, he is building a worldwide organization to continue his master plan of world conquest when he is gone.

The master, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, staked out some initial destinations in the U.S. for Muslims to emigrate to. Boston was one such destination. He created the Islamic Society of Boston with Saudi money and Wahhabi supremacist doctrine, which now has mosques in Cambridge and Roxbury.

Jihadists have come through the Cambridge and Boston mosques through the years, most recently the Tsarnaev brothers; the man in charge of ISIS social media and video, Northeastern graduate Ahmad Abousamra; and the imam said to have counseled the Muslim in Memphis who beheaded his co-worker for refusing to convert to Islam Suhaib Webb (who has now moved on to the DC area).

FREE SPEECH ESSENTIAL TO PREVENT IMPOSITION OF ISLAMIC SHARIA LAW IN THE UNITED STATES.

Well, the liberal press from the New York Times on down seem to think that the cartoonists and those others attending the free speech Mohammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas would have gotten what they deserved if the two shooters had been successful in slaughtering them all.

The First Amendment is to ensure free speech, especially free speech that some might consider insulting or offensive. Sometimes outrageous speech is essential to wake people up to threats they don't see or don't want to see.

It is as if government and too many opinion leaders in the West are in a trance when it comes to Islam. Most know by now that Islam is not a "Religion of Peace" -- or do they?

Three examples: Following the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, the president of France said it had nothing to do with Islam. Huh?

When the British soldier Rigby was attacked by two Muslims and killed and nearly decapitated on the streets of London as they shouted "Allahu Akbar," the Prime Minister assured the public it had nothing to do with Islam.

With the British election coming May 7th, the leader of the Labor Party has announced that if he becomes prime minister he will make "Islamophobia" a crime. In other words, any criticism or fear of Islam that is expressed will be considered an irrational statement and punished by British law. Madness.

These are three examples of delusion or deliberate lies driven by denial or fear. They do a disservice to the people of France and Britain.

What is the real situation, what is the truth that is being hidden?

Non-Muslims are the targets in a war being waged by Islam for almost 1400 years now. Islamic leaders know that they are waging war. They say so. "Death to America" is a hint.

Most non-Muslims don't want to believe what American presidents as far back as Jefferson and John Quincy Adams (and Winston Churchill) understood about Islam.

Every constitutional means available needs to be used to wake people up, shock people, into seeing the brutal reality staring them in the face.

That's what the Mohammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas was about. As the media and our government continue to deny the existence of this endless war of Islam’s true believers to gain territory and adherents and subjugate to Sharia or kill the rest, it falls to a few brave souls to sound the alarm on behalf of civilization.

We can hope and pray that Islam will reform, but there is no indication from its leaders whether in Tehran or Riyadh and elsewhere that their goal of world domination through violence and whatever other means work, such as lies, deceit, terrorism, intimidation, invasion by immigration and government infiltration, is being abandoned.

Islam's true believers, jihadists, who are persecuting and killing Christians and other non-Muslims are doing exactly what the Koran commands and Mohammad said and did, What are they doing that Mohammad didn't do? They are perverting nothing. They are true to Mohammad of the 7th Century using 21st Century tools largely invented by the non-believers to carry on jihad. They can find justification for their actions in their holy writs. Yet the Cape Cod Times in an editorial on May 5, 2015 wrongly referred to ISIS' "twisted and distorted view of Islam." Jihad is grounded in the ideology of Islam.

Islam is currently in one of its strongest phases of its history right now, rich in numbers of true believers and supporters and oil wealth, and capitalizing on the incredible blindness, willful denial and lack of resistance being shown by the leaders of the so-called free world.

Outspoken realists risking their lives to wake citizens of the western world from their dangerous slumber include the incredibly brave ex-Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer and Geert Wilders, to name just a few of the most prominent of a small brave handful. May their numbers increase. These courageous voices are regularly dismissed and vilified by the mainstream media and the leftists of the world, champion denialists of the Islamic threat if not in league with it.

What is the greatest threat to America and our way of life? China, Russia or Islam? One would not be wrong to say "Islam."

By the way, an ex-Muslim won the Mohammad cartoon contest grand prize. No newspaper has yet to publish it. Fear of Islam prevails. Sharia wins over the First Amendment. Should a cartoonist be murdered for this cartoon - or any cartoon?

CNN interviewed Pamela Geller, a principal sponsor of the free speech event in Texas and strongly implied that, because of the risk of murderous violence by Islamic jihadists, the event should not have been held. In other words, accept Islamic Sharia's limits on the First Amendment or be killed. It got quite contentious.

An important distinction that seems lost on the CNN interviewer: Islam is an ideology and not all Muslims follow Islam jihadism as originally conceived and practiced by Mohammad. Of the world's 1.4 billion Muslims it is probable that far, far less than a majority are jihadists. While Turkey's president Endogen insists that "Islam is Islam" and there is no such thing as "moderate Islam," there are indeed "moderate Muslims" who are undoubtedly a majority of all Muslims.

Megyn Kelly on Fox News' Kelly File interviewed the other principal sponsor of the free speech event Robert Spenser.

WHY ARE CHRISTIANS BEING SLAUGHTERED IN ISLAMIC LANDS?

Why are Christians being slaughtered by Muslims? Is it that so-called "tiny" minority that is the problem? No.

This hostility for and persecution of Christians is of course evident among “terrorist” organizations like the Islamic State, Boko Haram, etc. But it’s also evident among Muslim governments, Muslim police, and the Muslim populace. The reason is that it’s evident in Islam. We can continue playing games, euphemizing, white washing, invoking “grievances,” and so on, but in the end, it is the Koran, it is Muhammad, it is Sharia—in a word, it is Islam.

And it is a testimony to the blindness of the West that a thing so self-evident, so obvious, so well-documented—for nearly 1,400 years—is still, nonetheless, so difficult to acknowledge.

Raymond Ibrahim: Easter under Islam, Churches under Attack

April 9, 2015 By Raymond Ibrahim


As millions of Christians around the world were celebrating Easter Sunday, the Christians of the Muslim world were again under attack. The April 2 Islamic jihad attack on a Kenyan school—where the Islamic murderers made sure to slaughter only Christian students, sparing fellow Muslims—was only the most spectacular attack.

On Easter Sunday itself, as some media reported, the Islamic State destroyed the Virgin Mary Church in Tel Nasri—loosely translated as “Christian Hill”—in northeast Syria.

Even lesser known is that other churches and Christians in the Middle East were attacked during Easter weekend. Take Egypt. President Sisi recently decreed that a Christian church should be built in the Upper Egyptian town of al-Our, where 13 of the 21 Christians who were gruesomely beheaded by the Islamic State in Libya grew up, and where their families still live. The church was meant to honor them and the nation of Egypt. On Easter Sunday itself, as some media reported, the Islamic State destroyed the Virgin Mary Church in Tel Nasri—loosely translated as “Christian Hill”—in northeast Syria.

But, as always happens in Egypt—that is, as always happens in practically every Islamic nation in the world—local Muslims rioted and protested right after Islamic prayers last Friday. They yelled that they would never allow a church to be built, that “Egypt is Islamic!” and that “Anyway, shape, or form, we will take Sisi down!”

By night time, Molotov cocktails and stones were thrown at another Coptic church, cars were set ablaze—including one belonging to a relative of one of the those decapitated by the Islamic State—and several people were injured.

A day later, on Saturday, April 4, Muslims rioted and attacked the Christians of the village of Gala’, Samalout district. After waiting for years to repair their dilapidated church (also named after Virgin Mary, see pictures here) Coptic locals finally received all the proper permits to begin restoration. And, as usual, Muslim mayhem broke out.

To calm matters, local police invited the Muslim leaders who refused to see the old church building renovated to a meeting with the Christians. The Muslims insisted that the Copts must first accept a number of discriminatory restrictions, including that the building look like a house not a church—certainly no crosses visible anywhere on the building’s exterior—and its entrance must be a narrow side door, not at the front of the building which faces the street.

Although initial reports said some compromise was formally reached, “Muslim youth” still responded with violence, attacking Coptic homes, businesses, and persons, often by hurling stones. Christian owned wheat farms were destroyed and their potato crops uprooted. Islamic slogans were constantly yelled, including “There is no god but Allah” and “Islamic! Islamic!”—a reflection of the paranoid sentiment that if a single church is built or merely renovated, Egypt will cease to be Islamic.

As many Copts have pointed out, they have done everything legally, getting all the necessary permits—and in the instance of the al-Our church, President Sisi himself has approved it—so if Muslim protesters get their way every time, it suggests something else other than Egypt’s government is ruling Egypt.

Indeed, not only did local police, according to human rights activists and eye witnesses, fail to respond to the Muslim assailants, some reportedly joined in on the attack on Copts, including by throwing bricks at a vehicle carrying Christian girls.

Often we are told that it is a tiny minority of terrorists—the Islamic State, Boko Haram, al-Qaeda, al-Shabaab, ad nauseum—who have “hijacked” Islam for their political goals. But what do we make of these “everyday” Muslims? Indeed, not only did local police, according to human rights activists and eye witnesses, fail to respond to the Muslim assailants, some reportedly joined in on the attack on Copts, including by throwing bricks at a vehicle carrying Christian girls.

The mainstream media and White House brushed aside the Islamic State’s ritual beheading of 21 Coptic Christians by portraying it as a “criminal” act and not mentioning that the Copts were slaughtered simply for being Christian, as the Islamic State emphatically insisted. Instead, the White House condemned the killing of “Egyptian Citizens.”

So what about these other angry Muslims in Egypt? They are of the same nationality and culture as the Copts—they are not Libyans, nor are they “ISIS”—they speak the same exact dialect. Some knew the Copts who were beheaded; some still know their mourning families. But to have a church honoring those slaughtered Christians is unacceptable, and prompts more attacks on Christians, including, as seen, on family members of those beheaded in Libya.

The reason for this animus is, of course, as simple to understand as it is taboo to mention in “polite society”: Islamic law makes unequivocally clear that churches must never be built or even renovated. As relics of a conquered people, churches must go the way of the dodo, one way or another.

And that’s the point. Violence and intolerance against non-Muslims is not limited to “terrorist” organizations like the Islamic State. It’s a product of Islam’s core teachings as found in the Koran and Sunna, or example, of Muhammad. Even the aforementioned stipulations for the Samalout church to have no crosses, narrow side door, etc., are a product of Islamic documents, in this case, “The Conditions of Omar.”

This hostility for and persecution of Christians is of course evident among “terrorist” organizations like the Islamic State, Boko Haram, etc. But it’s also evident among Muslim governments, Muslim police, and the Muslim populace. The reason is that it’s evident in Islam. We can continue playing games, euphemizing, white washing, invoking “grievances,” and so on, but in the end, it is the Koran, it is Muhammad, it is Sharia—in a word, it is Islam.

And it is a testimony to the blindness of the West that a thing so self-evident, so obvious, so well-documented—for nearly 1,400 years—is still, nonetheless, so difficult to acknowledge.

AAYAN HIRSI ALI TO LIBERALS AND FEMINISTS: JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST ISLAM'S DISCRIMINATION OF WOMEN.

Thumbnail image for hirsi_ali.jpg
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a former Muslim who grew up in Muslim countries and suffered the abuses Muslim women are exposed to, including female genital mutilation. She escaped to the Netherlands, began speaking out about Islam's ill treatment of women, became a member of the Parliament, but death threats drove her to America, where she has become a citizen.

(A bill, H. 1530, dealing with female genital mutilation is currently being considered by the Massachusetts legislature where it has already received substantial bipartisan legislator support. The bill also supported by the AHA Foundation established by Aayan Hirsi Ali.)

She writes and speaks extensively on the woeful treatment of women as property under Islam. Her new book "Heretic" makes the case for reform of Islam, which is desperately needed, as even President Sisi of Egypt has admitted.

Her prior books "Nomad" and "Infidel" were best sellers.

In connection with the publication of her new book, she was recently interviewed by Megyn Kelly on the Kelly File on Fox News. Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, profiled her for the Politico.

Hirsi Ali has issued this call in particular to liberal feminists to take up the cause of Muslim women in reforming Sharia, Muslim law, which makes women (Christians, Jews and just about everyone else) second class citizens. She chose the left wing Huffington Post to get her message (set forth below) out. Feminists have been unaccountably silent about the omnipresent discrimination against women in Islam. Hirsi Ali pleads with them to join in the fight.

Needless to say, Republicans and other conservatives are already joined in the battle against Sharia and Islamic supremacism. Shamefully, the left has been and is allied with Islam in Europe and even the United States, presumably united against a historical common enemy, Christianity.

Hirsi Ali calls the treatment of women in Islam the civil rights issue of our time and, on the 50th anniversary of the march in Selma, likens this cause to that one. She is indeed fighting the same battle as did Republican Martin Luther King Jr. Ironically, just as King had to battle against a Democratic president Lyndon Johnson who didn't want to take up the fight and had to be forced into it, Hirsi Ali gets no help from the Democratic president with Muslim roots Barack Obama, who refuses to acknowledge the shortcomings and evils of Islam.

From Selma to Tunis: When Will We March Against the Segregation of Our Own Time?

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Huffington Post
03/23/2015

This year, with good reason, Americans have celebrated the moment 50 years ago when the struggle for civil rights for African-Americans reached a decisive moment: the 1965 March from Selma to Montgomery. The movie Selma won an Oscar. President Obama went to Selma and gave one of his finest speeches.

Recent racially charged incidents in Ferguson, Missouri, and elsewhere have prompted a near-universal reflexive response of black anger and white guilt. Despite the achievement of the generation led by Martin Luther King, Jr. in sweeping away the complex of laws that underpinned segregation in the South, racial prejudice continues to taint the United States like some kind of original sin. But the president was right to push back against the idea that nothing has changed since 1965.

Not only has the situation of African-Americans improved in many respects but, as Obama put it, the civil rights movement also swung open "doors of opportunity" for women, Latinos, Asian-Americans, gays and the disabled. And it continues to offer inspiration for those fighting for freedom around the world -- in Obama's words, from "the streets of Tunis to the Maidan in Ukraine." If anyone has the right to make this point, it is our half-African president.

Yet what the president failed to point out is that, around the world, segregation is making a comeback -- including in the streets of Tunis, where the proponents of today's segregation spilled blood last week.

Fifty years ago there were a host of legal impediments to equality between black and white Americans -- just as there were in countries such as South Africa and Rhodesia. Today, a different group is the victim of comparable legal discrimination that imposes segregation on them and denies them equal civil and political rights. What is more, their number is vastly larger than the number that was affected 50 years ago by segregation and apartheid. And that number is growing, because, unlike in the 1960s Alabama, the prevalence of discriminatory legislation outside the liberal West is actually increasing.

The system of law I am talking about is sharia law, the body of legislation derived from the Qur'an, the Hadith, and the rest of Islamic jurisprudence. And the discriminated group I have in mind is women, though I could also reference Jews, Christians and gays.

No group is more harmed by sharia than Muslim women -- a reflection in part of the patriarchal tribal culture out of which Islamic law emerged. Repeatedly, women are considered under the code to be worth at most "half a man." Sharia subordinates women to men in a multitude of ways: the requirement of guardianship by men, the right of men to beat their wives, the right of men to have unfettered sexual access to their wives, the right of men to practice polygamy, and the restriction of women's legal rights in divorce cases, in estate law, in cases of rape, in court testimony, and in consent to marriage.

Sharia states that women are considered naked if any part of their body is showing except for their face and hands, while a man is considered naked only between his navel and his knees. Finally, although Muslim men may marry Christian or Jewish women, Muslim women may only marry Muslim men.

Segregation, in short, is central to sharia -- a fact that no amount of contortion by self-styled Muslim feminists can get around.

True, not all Muslim-majority countries apply sharia. In Tunisia, after a heated internal debate, the Islamist Ennahda Movement -- which came to power following the Arab Spring -- opted last year not to make sharia the basis for the country's new constitution.

But that is precisely the kind of moderate policy explicitly targeted by whichever jihadist gang carried out the Tunis museum massacre. And the troubling thing is that, worldwide, sharia is gaining ground. In Brunei, for example, the Sultan announced the introduction of sharia law last April. The advance of organizations like Islamic State and Boko Haram mean the most brutal application of sharia on a rising number of women and girls.

There seems to me only one possible way to react to this trend toward sharia and that is to resist it. Perhaps that is more obvious to me than to most; having lived under sharia when I was a young girl in Saudi Arabia I know just what it means to be a second-class citizen. Yet many Western liberals seem to struggle with the obvious point that if they were against segregation and discrimination in the 1960s they should be against gender segregation and discrimination now.

My most recent book is an argument for a Muslim Reformation. It proposes a fundamental five-point modification of Islamic doctrine designed to remove the various incitements embedded in the Koran to engage in intolerance, oppression and violence. The book is addressed mainly to Muslims who are reluctant to follow me all the way to apostasy, but who are prepared to acknowledge, if only to themselves, that there are fundamental incompatibilities between their faith and modernity. But I am also addressing Western liberals -- and not only those at Brandeis University who last year saw fit to rescind their institution's offer to me of an honorary degree.

In their letter denouncing me, 87 Brandeis faculty members accused me of suggesting that:

violence toward girls and women is particular to Islam or the Two-Thirds World, thereby obscuring such violence in our midst among non-Muslims, including on our own campus [and]... the hard work on the ground by committed Muslim feminist and other progressive Muslim activists and scholars, who find support for gender and other equality within the Muslim tradition and are effective at achieving it.

Seriously? "Support for gender and other equality within the Muslim tradition"? As for Muslim feminists "achieving" greater equality, the evidence, as we have seen, is that women's rights in the Muslim world are being rapidly eroded by the spread of Islamism.

Calling Western feminists: People like me -- some of us apostates, most of us dissident Muslims -- need your support, not your antagonism. We who have known what it is to live without freedom watch with incredulity as you who call yourselves liberals -- who claim to believe so fervently in women's and minority rights -- make common cause with the forces in the world that manifestly pose the greatest threats to just those things.

I am now one of you: an American. I share with you the pleasures of the seminar rooms and the campus cafés. I know we Western intellectuals cannot lead a Muslim Reformation. But we do have an important role to play. We must no longer accept limitations on criticism of Islam. We must reject the notions that only Muslims can speak about Islam, and that any critical examination of Islam is inherently "racist." Instead of contorting Western intellectual traditions so as not to offend our Muslim fellow citizens, we need to defend the Muslim dissidents who are risking their lives to promote the human rights we take for granted: equality for women, tolerance of all religions and orientations, our hard-won freedoms of speech and thought.

Multiculturalism should not mean that we tolerate another culture's intolerance. If we do in fact support diversity, women's rights, and gay rights, then we cannot in good conscience give Islam a free pass on that spurious ground.

Martin Luther King's address before the Alabama state legislature on March 25, 1965, was defiant. "We are here," he declared, "and we are standing before the forces of power in the state of Alabama saying, 'We ain't goin' [to] let nobody turn us around.'" But King's message was also nuanced. Racial segregation, he argued, was not "a natural result of hatred between the races." Rather it was a political ploy by the Southern elite to drive a wedge between former slaves and poor whites -- directed as much at the Populist movement as at African-Americans. "The southern aristocracy," said King, "took the world and gave the poor white man Jim Crow. And when his wrinkled stomach cried out for the food that his empty pockets could not provide, he ate Jim Crow, a psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than the black man." Segregation was the "last outpost of psychological oblivion."

I believe the same can be said today of the increasing segregation of the sexes in Muslim communities here and in countries like the ones I grew up in. The leaders of the Muslim world -- political as well as religious -- know that they have no answer to the problems of poverty and unemployment that afflict many Muslim communities, including those in the West. But there is one thing they can offer to young Muslim men -- one last outpost of psychological oblivion. And that is not Jim Crow but sharia law: a psychological bird that tells him that no matter how bad off he is, at least he was a man, better than a woman.

I want to echo Martin Luther King. Yes, we Muslim reformers are on the move and no bogus charge of Islamophobia can stop us. The burning of our offices will not deter us. The bombing of our homes will not dissuade us. The beating and killing of our leaders and young girls will not divert us. The wanton release of known terrorists would not discourage us. We are on the move now. Like an idea whose time has come, not even the marching of mighty armies can halt us. We are moving to the land of freedom.

My question to the liberals of 2015 is this. You are very sure about what side you were on in 1965. But whose side are you on today?

Will you march with us for Muslim women's civil and political rights? Or will you wait half a century -- for the movie of our march?

TELLING ISLAM AS IT IS, NO HOLDS BARRED

This is a video recorded in Sydney, Australia this past September. Clare Lopez from the Center of Security Policy in Washington is winding up a tour of Australia during which she laid out for audiences the nature of Islam and how it relates to what's happening today.

It's an hour and a half presentation that is extremely well done.

Lopez cuts through all the nonsense one hears in the media about Islam. ISIS has not hijacked Islam. It is acting totally consistent with Mohammad's Islam. It will wage endless war against nonbelievers -- with special focus on Christians -- until the apocalypse.

So when President Sisi of Egypt calls for a "revolution" for Islam, he is right. It is absolutely essential. That revolution can only happen within Islam, since more than a billion Muslims have been brought up believing that Islam is destined to rule the world and that rule is to be achieved by war, violence and deceit whenever necessary. It is the obligation of every Muslim to work to that end, which involves converting to Islam or killing all nonbelievers or subjecting them to second class status in which they must pay an annual special tax to stay alive.

The ayatollahs of Iran share with ISIS a similar apocalyptic view -- though not the timetable -- and goal. They have been the world's leading terrorists since 1979 with a special focus on killing Jews and Americans. They call the U.S. the "Great Satan" and Israel the "Little Satan." Iran funds and arms Hezbollah and Hamas. Iran has killed American military personnel in Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Iran has killed Jews around the globe, such as in the massacre of 29 Jews in the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires in 1992.

OBAMA IS JEOPARDIZING THE SAFETY OF THE WORLD, THE U.S. AND ISRAEL WITH HIS PROPOSED NUCLEAR DEAL WITH THE AYATOLLAHS OF IRAN.

There is no rationality to Obama's gift of nuclear weapon capability to Iran. It endangers the United States and Europe as well as Israel. But Israel's is the only voice speaking out against Obama's submission to militant Iran.

Caroline Glick, the most perceptive observer of Middle East matters, details the contempt that Obama has shown Israel since becoming president, how Obama has endangered Israel and how Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has done his best to avoid confrontation with Obama and maintain strong relations with the U.S. until the day there is a new president in the White House.

But the road to nuclear power status that Obama is opening up for Iran is too big a threat to Israel's existence for Netanyahu to stay silent. He must speak, despite the derision and hatred directed against him by Obama's minions.

The safety of the entire world is at stake. Obama is not acting in the interests of the United States or of Israel. The deal Obama is proposing must be defeated.

Netanyahu will appeal to Congress and the American people to stop Obama before it's too late.

Netanyahu is not coming to Washington next Tuesday to warn Congress against Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, because he seeks a fight with Obama. Netanyahu has devoted the last six years to avoiding a fight with Obama, often at great cost to Israel’s national security and to his own political position.

Netanyahu is coming to Washington next week because Obama has left him no choice. And all decent people of good will should support him, and those who do not, and those who are silent, should be called out for their treachery and cowardice.

The burning question for Americans: "Why is our president endangering us like this?"

Iranian Bomb
by Caroline Glick

It is hard to get your arms around the stubborn determination of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today. For most of the nine years he has served as Israel’s leader, first from 1996 to 1999 and now since 2009, Netanyahu shied away from confrontations or buckled under pressure. He signed deals with the Palestinians he knew the Palestinians would never uphold in the hopes of winning the support of hostile US administrations and a fair shake from the pathologically hateful Israeli media.

In recent years he released terrorist murderers from prison. He abrogated Jewish property rights in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria. He agreed to support the establishment of a Palestinian state west of the Jordan River. He agreed to keep giving the Palestinians of Gaza free electricity while they waged war against Israel. He did all of these things in a bid to accommodate US President Barack Obama and win over the media, while keeping the leftist parties in his coalitions happy.

For his part, for the past six years Obama has undermined Israel’s national security. He has publicly humiliated Netanyahu repeatedly

\He has delegitimized Israel’s very existence, embracing the jihadist lie that Israel’s existence is the product of post-Holocaust European guilt rather than 4,000 years of Jewish history.

He and his representatives have given a backwind to the forces that seek to wage economic warfare against Israel, repeatedly indicating that the application of economic sanctions against Israel – illegal under the World Trade Organization treaties – are a natural response to Israel’s unwillingness to bow to every Palestinian demand. The same goes for the movement to deny the legitimacy of Israel’s very existence. Senior administration officials have threatened that Israel will become illegitimate if it refuses to surrender to Palestinian demands.

Last summer, Obama openly colluded with Hamas’s terrorist war against Israel. He tried to coerce Israel into accepting ceasefire terms that would have amounted to an unconditional surrender to Hamas’s demands for open borders and the free flow of funds to the terrorist group. He enacted a partial arms embargo on Israel in the midst of war. He cut off air traffic to Ben-Gurion International Airport under specious and grossly prejudicial terms in an open act of economic warfare against Israel.

And yet, despite Obama’s scandalous treatment of Israel, Netanyahu has continued to paper over differences in public and thank Obama for the little his has done on Israel’s behalf. He always makes a point of thanking Obama for agreeing to Congress’s demand to continue funding the Iron Dome missile defense system (although Obama has sought repeatedly to slash funding for the project).

Obama’s policies that are hostile to Israel are not limited to his unconditional support for the Palestinians in their campaign against Israel. Obama shocked the entire Israeli defense community when he supported the overthrow of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, despite Mubarak’s dependability as a US ally in the war on Islamist terrorism, and as the guardian of both Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel and the safety and freedom of maritime traffic in the Suez Canal.

Obama supported Mubarak’s overthrow despite the fact that the only political force in Egypt capable of replacing him was the Muslim Brotherhood, which seeks the destruction of Israel and is the ideological home and spawning ground of jihadist terrorist groups, including al-Qaida and Hamas. Obama then supported the Muslim Brotherhood’s regime even as then-president Mohamed Morsi took concrete steps to transform Egypt into an Islamist, jihadist state and end Egypt’s peace with Israel.

Israelis were united in our opposition to Obama’s behavior. But Netanyahu said nothing publicly in criticism of Obama’s destructive, dangerous policy.

He held his tongue in the hopes of winning Obama over through quiet diplomacy.
He held his tongue, because he believed that the damage Obama was causing Israel was not irreversible in most cases. And it was better to maintain the guise of good relations, in the hopes of actually achieving them, than to expose the fractures in US-Israel ties caused by Obama’s enormous hostility toward Israel and by his strategic myopia that endangered both Israel and the US’s other regional allies.

And yet, today Netanyahu, the serial accommodator, is putting everything on the line. He will not accommodate. He will not be bullied. He will not be threatened, even as all the powers that have grown used to bringing him to his knees – the Obama administration, the American Jewish Left, the Israeli media, and the Labor party grow ever more shrill and threatening in their attacks against him.

As he has made clear in daily statements, Netanyahu is convinced that we have reached a juncture in our relations with the Obama administration where accommodation is no longer possible.

Obama’s one policy that Netanyahu has never acquiesced to either publicly or privately is his policy of accommodating Iran.

Since Obama’s earliest days in office, Netanyahu has warned openly and behind closed doors that Obama’s plan to forge a nuclear deal with Iran is dangerous. And as the years have passed, and the lengths Obama is willing to go to appease Iran’s nuclear ambitions have been left their marks on the region, Netanyahu’s warnings have grown stronger and more urgent.

Netanyahu has been clear since his first tenure in office in the 1990s, that Iran’s nuclear program – as well as its ballistic missile program – constitutes a threat to Israel’s very existence. He has never wavered from his position that Israel cannot accept an Iran armed with nuclear weapons.

Until Obama entered office, and to an ever escalating degree until his reelection in 2012, preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons has been such an obvious imperative among both Israelis and Americans that Netanyahu’s forthright rejection of any nuclear deal in which Iran would be permitted to maintain the components of its nuclear program was uncontroversial. In some Israeli circles, his trenchant opposition to Iran’s acquisition of nuclear capabilities was the object of derision, with critics insisting that he was standing strong on something uncontroversial while buckling on issues like negotiations with the Palestinians, where he should have stood strong.

But now we are seeing that far from being an opportunist, Netanyahu is a leader of historical dimensions. For the past two years, in the interest of reaching a deal, Obama has enabled Iran to take over Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen. For the first time since 1974, due to Obama’s policies, the Golan Heights is an active front in the war against Israel, with Iranian military personnel commanding Syrian and Hezbollah forces along the border.

Iran’s single-minded dedication to its goal of becoming a regional hegemon and its commitment to its ultimate goal of destroying the US is being enabled by Obama’s policies of accommodation. An Iran in possession of a nuclear arsenal is an Iran that can not only destroy Israel with just one or two warheads. It can make it impossible for Israel to respond to conventional aggression carried out by terrorist forces and others operating under an Iranian nuclear umbrella.

Whereas Israel can survive Obama on the Palestinian front by stalling, waiting him out and placating him where possible, and can even survive his support for Hamas by making common cause with the Egyptian military and the government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, the damage Obama’s intended deal with Iran will cause Israel will be irreversible. The moment that Obama grants Iran a path to a nuclear arsenal – and the terms of the agreement that Obama has offered Iran grant Iran an unimpeded path to nuclear power – a future US administration will be hard-pressed to put the genie back in the bottle.

For his efforts to prevent irreparable harm to Israel Netanyahu is being subjected to the most brutal and vicious attacks any Israeli leader has ever been subjected to by an American administration and its political allies. They are being assisted in their efforts by a shameless Israeli opposition that is willing to endanger the future of the country in order to seize political power.

Every day brings another serving of abuse. Wednesday National Security Adviser Susan Rice accused Netanyahu of destroying US relations with Israel. Secretary of State John Kerry effectively called him a serial alarmist, liar, and warmonger.

For its part, the Congressional Black Caucus reportedly intends to sabotage Netanyahu’s address before the joint houses of Congress by walking out in the middle, thus symbolically accusing of racism the leader of the Middle East’s only liberal democracy, and the leader of the most persecuted people in human history.

Radical leftist representatives who happen to be Jewish, like Jan Schakowsky of suburban Chicago and Steve Cohen of Memphis, are joining Netanyahu’s boycotters in order to give the patina of Jewish legitimacy to an administration whose central foreign policy threatens the viability of the Jewish state.

As for Netanyahu’s domestic opponents, their behavior is simply inexcusable. In Israel’s hour of peril, just weeks before Obama intends to conclude his nuclear deal with the mullahs that will endanger Israel’s existence, Labor leader Yitzhak Herzog insists that his primary duty is to defeat Netanyahu.

And as far as Iran is concerned, he acts as a free loader ad a spoiler. Either he believes that Netanyahu will succeed in his mission to derail the deal with or without his support, or he doesn’t care. But Herzog’s rejection of Netanyahu’s entreaties that he join him in Washington next week, and his persistent attacks on Netanyahu for refusing accommodate that which cannot be accommodated shows that he is both an opportunist and utterly unworthy of a leadership role in this country.

Netanyahu is not coming to Washington next Tuesday to warn Congress against Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, because he seeks a fight with Obama. Netanyahu has devoted the last six years to avoiding a fight with Obama, often at great cost to Israel’s national security and to his own political position.

Netanyahu is coming to Washington next week because Obama has left him no choice. And all decent people of good will should support him, and those who do not, and those who are silent, should be called out for their treachery and cowardice.

MOHAMMAD TRUE BELIEVERS SHATTER ANCIENT ARTIFACTS IN MOSUL

ISIS savages are murdering Christians and others who do not follow the teachings of Mohammad. The Koran was cited as the reason for the destruction of the monumental 6th Century Buddhas of Bamiyan in Afghanistan. Now ISIS takes it bludgeons to ancient historical artifacts in Mosul. Humanity itself and civilization are the targets of today's Mohammad marauders. Who will stop their barbarity?

DEFEATING RADICAL ISLAM

A Sunday CBS TV panel explored this question on January 11, 2015. A new perspective was provided by Farah Pandith, who served as the U.S. government liaison to Muslim communities worldwide in the Bush and Obama administrations.

Farah was born in the Muslim part of Kashmir and emigrated to the U.S. at an early age and grew up in the Boston area. She is a graduate of Smith College and the Fletcher School of Diplomacy at Tufts University. She worked in Massachusetts state government and in the private sector at ML Strategies, the consulting arm of the Boston-headquartered law firm of Mintz Levin. A personal note: As the chairman and founder of ML Strategies, I worked closely with Farah for several years. She is brilliant, articulate and an eager problem solver. When she speaks, people should listen. -- Fran Meaney
