It's been a long summer. I've spent too much time away from the computer but I've read a few good books, spend time with my daughter and basically reinvigorated myself. With the President of Iran coming to visit and "bringing the truth
" to us dumb Americans, I just thought these past posts would be appropriate.
Many Americans refuse to believe the Islamic terrorists are a threat to the free world and those who talk of the danger are thought of as war mongers. They simply refuse to take them at their word as many refused to take Hitler’s warnings in Mein Kampf seriously.
In the Times article of May 29th, written by Michael Powell, he quotes a woman in Atlanta asking candidate Giuliani, “Why does so much of the world hate us? Haven’t we failed to understand Arab grievances? We misinterpret their word ‘jihad’ which is not necessarily a hostile word.”
Truly an Alice In Wonderland view.
In a May 28th New York Times article, reporters Michael Moss and Souad Mekhennet provided a chilling report on what the future holds. The article begins, “When Muhammad al-Darsi got out of prison in Libya last year after serving time for militant activities, he had one goal: killing Americans in Iraq. A recruiter…told him he was not needed in Iraq. Instead, he was drafted into the war that is seeping out of Iraq. A team of militants from Iraq had traveled to Jordan, where they were preparing attacks on Americans and Jews…”
In other words, the terrorist jihad will continue and many of the terrorists will be those who are now fighting in Iraq. It cannot be stated often enough that the goal of the Islamic terrorists is the destruction of Western civilization and the restoration of the caliphate. The caliphate would unite all Muslims in one theocratic state, running from and including Spain to Indonesia, encompassing nearly 1.4 billion Muslims.
A terrorist recently convicted in Great Britain was deported to Jamaica after trial. The Times reports in an article of May 26th by Alan Cowell, “Mr. Faisal had been convicted in February 2003 of soliciting murder and inciting racial hatred…urging his followers to kill Hindus, Christians, Jews and American citizens…During Mr. Faisal’s trial, prosecutors played a videotape showing him telling 150 young followers after the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States that the Koran justified attacks on non-Muslims.
He was also heard to promise teenage Muslim boys that their reward in paradise would be 72 virgins if they died as religious martyrs.”
You can’t make this stuff up.
Will we and the rest of the Western world wake up in time so that we can survive the 30-year war that will take place after we leave Iraq?
They want to kill us, and apparently, many Americans don’t believe it.
Good Muslims Kill Part II
"Did you think that you would enter Paradise and receive My reward before I tested you so that I might know who is loyal?" Ishaq:394
And apparently it doesn't matter who they kill...even other Muslims.
The conflict began when early in the morning of May 22 the Lebanese Army tried to attack an apartment in Tripoli, working out a version that connects the recent robbery of a bank with a group of radical Islamists known as “Fath al-Silam”. The group responded with an attack on army positions around the refugee camp. Despite the fact that the organization has some 200 members, “Fath al-Islam” is involved at least in a series of blasts, which took place in Christian districts of Lebanon during recent years.
The leader of extremists Shaker Absi assures that he is loyal to Usama bin Laden. In other words, collisions in the north of Lebanon show that “Al-Qaida” managed to penetrate even this part of Mediterranean region, which up to this moment was known for its moderate Islam and religions tolerance.
Lebanon’s defence minister told Islamic militants holed up in a "Palestinian" refugee camp on Wednesday after three days of fierce fighting with the army that they must surrender or else.
“The army will not negotiate with Fatah al-Islam, which has two choices: either surrender or the army will take the military option,” Elias Murr said in an interview on Arabic satellite channel Al-Arabiya.
At the heart of this conflict, as in every single area of explosive friction in the Middle East, is the determination of Muslim radicals to make Islamic rule the law of the land.
The leader of Fatah al-Islam, the Palestinian Shaker al-Absi, has clearly spelled out his goals. His first order of business, he told Reuters, is instituting Islamic law among Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
It doesn't seem to matter whether or not the refugees are alive.
