| Democracy vs. Islamic Tyranny |
Posted and published April 6, 2004
It is my opinion that Islam today poses the greatest threat ever to the US and free nations worldwide. Established about 640 AD, it was and is dedicated to making the world Islamic -- one-way or another. The strictest, fundamentalist Islamic code (Hanbali Law) came mainly from Saudi Arabia. It's interpreted strictly as in dealing with "Islamic territories" gained in Muslim conquests and migrations. "Any territory that comes under Islamic rule cannot be de-Islamized", and land once under Islamic rule is considered perpetually Islamic. That's why Islam views Israel as "Occupied Territory". That's also why our defeat and occupation of Iraq is so intolerable. Consider Clinton's war against Kosovo's Christian Serbs. For centuries it had been Serbian territory. However, over time, ethnic (Muslim) Albanians "migrated" to Kosovo. Today it's 90% Muslim. Though Clinton called it "ethnic cleansing" of Kosovo's Muslim Albanians", it was the opposite! Further, Hanbali laws view non-Muslims within their lands as inferiors to be tolerated, converted, or preferably eliminated over time.
Today, every Muslim who fights for Islam's expansion is honored as a shaheed (martyr) no matter whom he kills or how he dies. Global, totalitarian, fundamentalist Islam has long regarded those of the Judeo-Christian world as intolerable enemies. Islam's prolific, impoverished, exploding Third World populations today number over 1.2 Billion. Many are Arabs, and most all are devout followers. Its women (and "outsiders") are subjugated, subservient, and often humiliated. (On the basis of population alone, Islam might be regarded as 5 times the menace of Germany and Japan in WWII.) Remember, over a million Muslims were lost in their Iraq-Iran war, and it was of little consequence. Muslim troops are "expendable". Their unlimited terrorist "Jihad fighters" are "cannon fodder" for their hateful, anti-West, leaders. Islam's Koran fosters and encourages hatred of all "infidels", and its leaders praise their devoted, suicide bombers. Gleeful, cheering Muslim crowds danced on 9-11, and when Hussein's Scuds rained down on Israel in 1991 -- and currently in murderous ambushes of our troops and civilians and execution of hostages in "liberated Iraq".
Today's Islamic terrorists, Sunnis and Shiites, are global, diversified and insidious. The media calls them "extremists" or "militants". Examples: Saudi Arabia's dangerous Wahabbi's; Iran's followers of fanatical Ayatollah's; Syria's terrorist HizbAllah; Afghanistan's "Mujahideen" allied to al Qeda; the Islamic-Albanian KLA terrorists of Kosovo; "nationalist terrorists" of Russia's Chechnya; and Israel's many ruthless, dedicated Arab enemies - e.g., Hamas, the PLFP, and Arafat's Fatah faction of the PLO. All are tyrannical, anti freedom, Jihad terrorists" or supporters. They take full advantage of permissive, "open democracies" by infiltrating and growing, as in the US today, via mushrooming Mosques, Islamic centers, Medressehs and subversive cells. (e.g., Dearborn Mich. has become a hotbed.) Name a "moderate Muslim" here or anywhere brave enough to dissent. Remember Salmon Rushti? Longevity is especially short for Israeli Arab Muslims ("Palestinians") suspected of "collaboration". Though they kill and war with one-another, Islamic Arabs unite against Israel, which is not on their maps.
Permissive, tolerant, multicultural America says most all US Muslims are patriotic citizens, -- never mind their basic anti Judeo-Christian beliefs mandated by the Koran, and fundamentalist "clerics" anti-democratic teachings in US Medressehs. As for our biased, Third World controlled UN, the United Nations should be reorganized as "United Democracies", with memberships limited to democratic nations. Ghana's Kofi Annan, is the UN's Secretary General, though in 1981 a military coup took over his impoverished Third World nation. His predecessor, Boutros Boutros Ghali was a biased, pro-Palestinian Egyptian. Remember Sadat's assassination by Egypt's radical terrorists including Bin Laden's #2 man in Afghanistan today. I further suggest that the world's dictatorships could have a separate organization based perhaps in Saudi Arabia or Syria.
An unprepared America reacted quickly to Japan's Dec 7th sneak attack on Pearl Harbor and Nazi U Boats sinking our ships. United behind FDR and Churchill, we and our allies won that World War in just over 3 years. The cost: Over 400,000 GI's. Today, a divided America faces an even deadlier enemy, while myopic, anti-war isolationists disparage the president via TV and demonstrations. France and other anti-war nations in this shrunken world are even more vigorous in their pacifist opposition. With WMDs in the hands of small dictatorships today, we're faced with a totally new, and perhaps deadliest menace ever to freedom and democracy, -- International, Islamic Terrorism:
