Islamic supremacism: 2015 Archives


This is a video that must be seen. The message: The enemy is Islam, not radical Islam. As the president of Turkey Erdogan says, There is only Islam. No moderate Islam, no radical Islam. "Islam is Islam."



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.




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: <"">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.



Should some mosques in America be closed down? A recent study found that about 80 mosques in the U.S. teach radical Islam and have some connection to terrorism.

If one examines the literature being used in mosques all over the United States, it's even more disturbing. Since a majority of the mosques constructed in the U.S. in the past two or three decades were paid for in whole or in part with foreign money from the Saudis and other Gulf State monarchies, it appears that the reading material being used in such mosques is much the same as one would find in Saudi Arabia. LIsten to this interview with Brigitte Gabriel of Act for America, the leading organization in America fighting against the infiltration of islamic supremacism into the U.S.

This is an organization whose work is worth supporting. Sign up for its emails, sign its petitions when asked, contribute if you can. Islam is at war with us and each and everyone of us needs to join the fight to preserve the Constitution, our rights to freedom and our way of life.



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.



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 video that went viral showing the Muslim invasion of Europe by young fighting age men --with a few women and children sprinkled in for effect -- is frightening. Why aren't they home fighting against -- or for -- one side of the other? Why were their families behind?

Now we hear that the money supporting the invasion is coming from Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf States intent on spreading Salifist Islam (7th Century Islam) into Europe. George Soros is said to be providing funding as well, seeking to eliminate borders and letting the "oppressed" and poor enjoy the benefits of the "oppressors' ill-gotten gains.

In the 7th Century Mohammad formed an army composed of such restless young men to conquer all of Arabia by murder, pillage, brigandry, kidnapping, torture and rape. For Mohammad and Allah. What Allah did is the model for such young Muslim men today. And that is -- frightening.

It was reported today that if the current rate of invasion of Germany continues through 2016 young Muslim men would equal young German men in Germany. If fighting breaks out, who do you think will win?



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.

At least one jihad attacker was a “refugee.” Will European leaders reconsider their migrant policy?
November 14, 2015 Robert Spencer


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.”

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.



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.

Coming soon to a neighborhood near you....



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.





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.



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."

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.




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.



Beginning with the attacks on New York City and the Pentagon on 9/11/2001, political correctness has tied speakers into knots when talking about who the enemy is that is attacking us. First, it was a "War on Terror," but who was that? Later it became a small minority of Muslims who had perverted the message of a great religion, the "Religion of Peace," namely, Islam.

Then a new term became popular -- Islamist -- to describe that tiny minority with a perverted misunderstanding of Islam and to separate Islam itself from blame.

Then the Obama administration frowned on the use of "Islamist terrorist" or the word Islam in any variation appearing in the same sentence (or was it paragraph?) with terrorism.

Fighting terror overseas became "overseas contingency operations." Mass murder of fellow soldiers by a Muslim-American Army officer Major Nidal Hasan at Ft. Hood while shouting "Alahu Akbar" ("Allah is great" in Arabic) was classified as "workplace violence" and the dead and wounded were denied Purple Hearts (since remedied) and the special medical care and other benefits normally given to those who were wounded and the families of those who were killed in combat (still denied).

This is the background for what took place in the discussion period after a panel had discussed the murder of four Americans in Benghazi. A young Muslim-American woman spoke up about her concerns. One of the panelists Brigette Gabriel, who had fled Lebanon as a child becomes of Islamic violence, responded to her questions.

This is the kind of candor and honesty that is essential if we are to succeed in defeating the enemy which is attacking us. Political correctness is poisonous and it prevents getting to the truth.

In short, Brigitte Gabriel stated that It is Islam as spelled out in the Koran and in the words and actions of Mohammad that are the problem. Every Muslim has a duty to wage jihad against the unbelievers until Islam rules the world. Every weapon can be used in jihad, from murder, rape and pillage to deceit and trickery. That a large number of Muslims do not engage in such violence or deceit is "irrelevant." What's relevant is that minority (that isn't so small in number) of Islam's followers which causes grievous harm

There are moderate Muslims, to be sure, but there is no such thing as "moderate Islam." No less an authority than the Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Erdogan made that clear: "There is only Islam." The vast majority of Muslims might be peaceful, but a significant percentage are true believers and they are the ones who carry the banner of true Islam to the death and destruction of thousands and thousands -- and through the decades and centuries millions on millions.

Islam in its founding ideology is at war with the West, Christianity, Judaism and every other religion. When will that vast majority of moderate Muslims wake up and join with the West to reject the Islam of Mohammad?

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

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?

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.



The Atlantic's upcoming issue has an important cover story that all should read.

It is entitled, "What ISIS Really Wants."

Since the article is appearing in a left wing journal, perhaps it will open many eyes on the left that have stayed steadfastly closed as the threat from Islamic true believers has exploded across the world, in the Middle East, in Africa and now in Paris and Denmark.

There are no "lone wolves" in Islam; they are all connected by a common ideology, whether seemingly acting alone or in an army such as ISIS or in a terrorist gang such as Boko Haram in Nigeria.

The article is lengthy, but well worth reading. The author towards the end of the piece tries to suggest there are some followers of strict, radical, fundamentalist Salafism that really are different since they don't subscribe to violence. These are probably rarer than the so-called "moderate Muslims" we seldom hear from.

What ISIS Really Wants-- The Atlantic.pdf

From its inception, Islam has been an aggressive ideology at war with everyone who refuses to accept its form of belief. Islam's god is a stranger to the God of Christianity and Islam. But the lure of killing and raping in the name of Allah in a war of conquest is exciting and appealing to Muslim youth brought up to believe they are better than all those infidels when reality tells them a different story. They can show their strength and superiority by beheading, burning and enslaving those who don't believe what they believe.



Raymond Ibrahim is a scholar of Islam. This short primer should help clarify the chatter about the origins of Islamic "anger" being vented in Paris, Copenhagen and on the Libyan shores of the Mediterranean.

The True History of Christendom and Islam
By Raymond Ibrahim
February 13, 2015
FrontPage Magazine


U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama’s recent condemnation of medieval Christian history to exonerate modern Islam is a reminder of how woefully ignorant (or intentionally deceptive) a good many people in the West are concerning the true history of Christian Europe and Islam.

The problem is that those who condemn things like the Crusades—including “mainstream” academics, journalists, movie-makers, and politicians—do so without mention of historical context. Worse, they imply “we” already know the context: evil popes and greedy knights exploiting Christianity to seize Muslim lands and wealth. Or as Karen Armstrong put it, “the idea that Islam imposed itself by the sword is a Western fiction, fabricated during the time of the Crusades when, in fact, it was Western Christians who were fighting brutal holy wars against Islam.”

The true story of Christendom and Islam is the antithesis of such claims. Consider some facts for a moment:

A mere decade after the birth of Islam in the 7th century, the jihad burst out of Arabia. Leaving aside all the thousands of miles of ancient lands and civilizations that were permanently conquered—including Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and parts of India and China—much of Europe was also, at one time or another, conquered by the sword of Islam.

Among other nations and territories that were attacked and/or came under Muslim domination are (to give them their modern names in no particular order): Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Sicily, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Lithuania, Romania, Albania, Serbia, Armenia, Georgia, Crete, Cyprus, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Belarus, Malta, Sardinia, Moldova, Slovakia, and Montenegro.

In 846 Rome was sacked and the Vatican defiled by Muslim Arab raiders; some 600 years later, in 1453, Christendom’s other great basilica, Holy Wisdom (or Hagia Sophia) was conquered by Muslim Turks, permanently. (Till this day, Turkish Muslims celebrate the sack of Constantinople, which saw much rapine and slaughter.)

The few European regions that escaped direct Islamic occupation due to their northwest remoteness include Great Britain, Scandinavia, and Germany. That, of course, does not mean that they were not attacked by Islam. Indeed, in the furthest northwest of Europe, in Iceland, Christians used to pray that God save them from the “terror of the Turk.” This was not mere paranoia; as late as 1627, Muslim corsairs raided the northern Christian island seizing four hundred captives and selling them in the slave markets of Algiers.

Nor did America escape. A few years after the formation of the United States, in 1800, American trading ships in the Mediterranean were plundered and their sailors enslaved by Muslim corsairs. The ambassador of Tripoli explained to Thomas Jefferson that it was a Muslim’s “right and duty to make war upon them [non-Muslims] wherever they could be found, and to enslave as many as they could take as prisoners.”

In short, for roughly one millennium—punctuated by a Crusader-rebuttal that the modern West is obsessed with demonizing—Islam daily posed an existential threat to Christian Europe and by extension Western civilization.

And therein lies the rub: Today, whether as taught in high school or graduate school, whether as portrayed by Hollywood or the news media, the predominant historic narrative is that Muslims are the historic “victims” of “intolerant” Western Christians. (Watch my response to a Fox News host wondering why Christians have always persecuted Muslims.)

So here we are, paying the price of being an ahistorical society: A few years after the Islamic strikes of 9/11—merely the latest in the centuries-long, continents-wide jihad on the West—Americans elected (twice) a man with a Muslim name and heritage for president; a man who condemns the Crusades while openly empowering the same Islamic ideology that Christian warriors fought for centuries.

Surely the United States’ European forebears—who at one time or another either fought off or were conquered by Islam—must be turning in their graves.

But all this is history, you say? Why rehash it? Why not let it be and move on, begin a new chapter of mutual tolerance and respect, even if history must be “touched up” a bit?

This would be a somewhat plausible position—if not for the fact that, all around the globe, Muslims are still exhibiting the same imperial impulse and intolerant supremacism that their conquering forbears did. The only difference is that the Muslim world is currently incapable of defeating the West through a conventional war.

Yet this may not even be necessary. Thanks to the West’s ignorance of history, Muslims are flooding Europe under the guise of “immigration,” refusing to assimilate, and forming enclaves which in modern parlance are called “ghettoes” but in Islamic terminology are the ribat—frontier posts where the jihad is waged on the infidel, one way or the other.

All this leads to another, perhaps even more important point: If the true history of the West and Islam is being turned upside its head, what other historical “orthodoxies” being peddled around as truth are also false?

Were the Dark Ages truly benighted because of the “suffocating” forces of Christianity? Or were these dark ages—which “coincidentally” occurred during the same centuries when jihad was constantly harrying Europe—a product of another suffocating “religion”? Was the Spanish Inquisition—also condemned by Obama—a reflection of Christian barbarism or was it at least partially a reflection of Christian desperation vis-à-vis the many Muslims who, while claiming to have converted to Christianity, were practicing taqiyya and living as moles trying to subvert the Christian nation back to Islam?

Don’t expect to get true answers to these and other questions from the makers, guardians, and disseminators of the West’s fabricated epistemology.

In the future (whatever one there may be) the histories written about our times will likely stress how our era, ironically called the “information age,” was not an age when people were so well informed, but rather an age when disinformation was so widespread and unquestioned that generations of people lived in bubbles of alternate realities—till they were finally popped.
