Main threat to U.S., Russia: Radical Islam, not each other


Main threat to U.S., Russia: Radical Islam, not each other

Exclusive: William Murray urges nations to work together 'before it's too late for civilization'

William Murray
The Russian Federation and the United States face an existential threat no less lethal than the two nations once faced from the Axis powers in World War II – a threat powered by an ideology that literally worships death, an ideology whose adherents literally love death more than the citizens of Russia and the United States love life itself. A threat consisting not of thousands or millions of those willing to die to bring about its final victory and domination over the world – but rather hundreds of millions.
This threat is not new. The first foreign war fought by the United States shortly after its founding was against just one element of this threat. One battle in that war is immortalized in the Marine Corps’ “Marines’ Hymn.”
For more than a millennium, raiding parties kidnapped women for polygamous marriages to support this enemy of civilization from as far north as Ireland and up the Volga River. The adherents of this ideology pirated ships and took American sailors as slaves, and invaded Slavic and Germanic lands several times. Even the Vatican was sacked to finance the terror of the onslaught of this ideology.
Today, this common enemy, believing that every word of a sixth-century warlord is the literal word of God, is massively armed with modern weapons of warfare. The bulk of these weapons are supplied by Western powers as were the cannons that brought down the walls of Constantinople in the 15th century.
During the last century, this threat has entered a new phase as civilians in Russia and the United States are slaughtered in sophisticated acts of terror including bombings of trains, planes, apartment buildings, schools and public squares. Russian children were slaughtered at Beslan, and American kindergarteners killed at the World Trade Center.
Astonishingly, these two great nations, Russia and the United States, have addressed this modern existential threat by supplying even more weapons to various elements of it. As recently as 2012 the United States was training and arming “moderate” elements of what is now the Islamic State. As entire nations cease to exist and become havens for jihadist training – such as in the case of Libya – Russia and the United States focus their attention on defending their nations from each other.
As English and Russian speaking jihadists fighters behead young Christian boys, rape young Christian girls and use the heads of their victims as soccer balls, American spy planes and Russian Bear bombers test each other’s defenses.
Rather than stripping nuclear weapons from the dysfunctional Islamic government of Pakistan, which kills its Christian citizens for crimes of blasphemy against Islam, that nation receives even more American weapons, as Russia continues to arm Iran.
Let’s start with this one simple goal that both nations should be able to agree on – save the single most persecuted group of people in the world today – the Christians under Islamic rule.
Let’s start with compassion.
The Russian Federation can make a first move by opening its doors to some of the tens of thousands of Iraqi Christians whose homes and churches have been destroyed.
The first appearance of Jesus Christ after his Ascension was on the Road to Damascus. There he stopped Saul on his mission to Damascus to persecute and kill Christians.
America can also make a move to help the Christians of Syria by simply stopping the supply of weapons to the Saudi mercenaries who are using that same road Jesus stopped Saul on, to travel to Damascus to kill Christians.
The greatest common cause of Russia and the United States today, the greatest threat, the existential threat, is being ignored.
Yet, this existential threat cannot be whisked away with political correctness or by pretending that an ideology of hatred is peaceful.
This ideology gave the Christians of the Middle East who are fleeing the same three options it offers the Jews of Israel, the Christians of Russia and the secularists of the United States:
Convert, be enslaved or die.
But, for Russia and the United States there is still a fourth option that no longer exists for over one-third of the world – VICTORY.
That fourth choice cannot come about without true American and Russian mutual trust and cooperation.
Let’s at least examine that fourth choice before it is too late for civilization.
Note: William J. Murray is also the director of the Christmas for Refugees program, which provides Christmas dinners for Christian refugee children from Iraq and Syria each year. The program also supplies direct aid to Christian families year round.

Learning from Russia's Return to Its Historical Roots


Learning from Russia's Return to Its Historical Roots

By Janice Shaw Crouse
Having swept all before them in the aimless societies of the west, the LGBTIQ crowd is in a howling fury with Russia’s pro-family movement for its refusal to capitulate to their gay marriage agenda. They are calling for federal investigations of Americans participating in what should have been a non-controversial international pro-family celebration, honoring an institution that has been the backbone of virtually all societies throughout thousands of years of history. The International Family Forum, convening in Moscow on September 10 at the State Kremlin Palace and continuing September 11 at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, drew more than 1,000 participants from around the world (including about a dozen individuals from the United States).
Many Western nations have kowtowed to the pressures of the LGBTIQ movement that seeks to destroy freedom of speech, religious liberty, marriage and the family. Emboldened by their political victories in the United States (more often than not at the hands of unelected judges), the protesters made global headlines by trying to shut down the World Congress of Families’ pro-family celebration in Australia. They succeeded in preventing American organizations -- especially the World Congress of Families -- from participating in the just-completed International Family Forum in Moscow; they threw up barriers and threatened retribution, but they could not shut down either the Australian or the Russian events. The most they could do was demand there be investigations of the American individuals who helped plan the Russian conference, but they could not stop free citizens from participating on their own.
The Russian forum in its “General Concept” preface succinctly identified the harms caused by the “sensate culture” (a term from Pitirim Sorokin, a famous Russian sociologist who knew well the deleterious effects of a man-centered, atheistic worldview), a modern-day post-Christian dimension in world history: “the destruction of moral standards such as Goodness, Truth, and Beauty and destruction of faith in a Created natural order that distinguishes good from evil.” Such attitudes -- “this modern-day ambiguity, relativity, and indeterminacy regarding family” -- “creates the threat to the civilized existence of societies.” The Russians declare that “it is high time to talk not only about the role of the family institution in the retention of humanity as a biological species but also about the vital role of [the] natural family in the preservation of civilized society and “ordered liberty.”  This transformation is “crucially important especially given the millennial battle between civil society and barbarism, where the latter appears in a highly technological and disguised progressive form contributing to the increasing moral chaos.”
The Russians, having experienced 70 years of the horrors and “moral chaos” brought about by the Marxist-Leninist experiment at creating the "New Man," are not about to give up their hard-won grip on reality, regained by going back to their historic Orthodox roots. Their clear unswerving vision of their recent past under Communism enables them to see progressivism as “a new tool of secular, post-modern humanists and sexual radicals to pursue not only their economic interests, but also, ideological, philosophical and political interests.”  Russian pro-family leaders recognize that the threats to “the meaning of family in the context of global ideological competition from self-interested post-modern humanists and challenges to the ensure the survival and sovereignty of modern states grows to such an extent that the protection of the classical notions of normative behavior, civilized man, the human family, and definition of marriage have to be enshrined in national constitutions.” Whatever critiques of Putin’s foreign policy you may have, the pro-family movement in Russia is a genuine and deep phenomenon, unrelated to foreign affairs.
Intellectual dry rot has made western intellectuals susceptible to every foolish fad -- neo-Marxism, feminism, genderism, humanism, environmentalism, etc. -- that has resulted from deconstructionism. Nowhere is this more evident than their inability to discern simple biological realities such as the difference between male and female. As the Russians noted, “Only precise and univalent definitions may permit us to understand that behind the fuzzy expectations of modern humanism and its jargon, there hides traits of degradation and deception that would lead to the death of humanity.” Such thinking, of course, is scorned by the elites who have produced our distorted Western intellectual condition.
Having chosen the mush of moral relativism and multiculturalism over the sterner more rigorous and demanding Judeo-Christian worldview, the leaders in the great universities, the media with the vast array of communications technology at its disposal, the business and government leaders of the western world from Washington to London to Paris to Frankfurt to Vienna, all have been easily swayed and finally subjugated by first one movement and then another –– including feminism's flimsy claims that men and women are interchangeable, the LGBTIQ's claims that gender is a social construct and thus we must give up everything from traditional/real-world designation of male and female bathrooms to father and mother on birth certificates.
We in the west have read a bit of Russian history, but know little of what is embedded in the DNA of the Russians from the first-hand experiences of generation after generation of those who struggled to survive one tragedy after another. Napoleon’s half a million strong army was able to reach Moscow but was turned back in defeat by the realities of the flames that consumed the city and the deadly cold of the Russian winter. Hitler learned nothing from Napoleon's folly. He had no comprehension of how tenaciously the Russians would defend their Motherland no matter how many millions of them he managed to kill with advanced German weaponry.
Now come Obama, Kerry, Clinton and the rest of the LGBTIQ's claque who bluster, sanction, and slander pro-family Russian leaders; these, however, are persons who see and understand the real threat to their homeland of the depopulation and demographic winter that follow when there is a failure of natural families to flourish. Now come the Human Rights Campaign and those who demonize and demagogue anyone who dares to speak Truth to power on these fundamental issues.
Meanwhile, the radical Islamist jihadist have taken the measure of the decadent West with its vast technological superiority (but moral and spiritual bankruptcy) and have decided they can with beat us with suicide bombers. And as long as we are led by thinkers who not only fail to recognize the importance of (but actively fight against) something as elementary and fundamental as the necessity to a society of having the foundational strength of families lead by a mothers and fathers, then perhaps the jihadist are right.
What western elites refuse to comprehend, the Russian cab driver taking us to the airport effortlessly grasps, (from practical, real-life experience), namely the importance of family and fidelity. We conversed even though his English was a faltering, rusty, classroom level of vocabulary. In response to my question about family, he told us that he had two children – a boy 21 and a girl 3 years old. Then, apparently in recognition that we were Americans, he wanted to make it very clear that he was married, had had only one wife -- had loved only one woman -- even though he “made” his son when he was only a lad of 17. Family was obviously very important to him as a man and he wanted it clearly understood that he was faithful to his vows to his wife.
Today, after 80 years of the horrors of life under communism, Russia is working to restore family and Orthodoxy as the foundations of its culture and the means of its survival as a nation. Meanwhile, it remains to be seen how much stomach the west has left for a fight for survival. Perhaps we will simply, once again, capitulate to Jihadism just as we have to LGBTIQism and so many other hollow “isms.” But if after witnessing the miracle of Russia's unblinking repudiation of the blight and sorrows of its own Marxist experiment, I wouldn't bet on the Russians capitulating to western LGBTIQ fascists without a fight.

Kremlin Hosts International Meeting of Pro-Family Leaders and It is Accused by The Moscow Times of Throwing a Global Neo-Con Party


Kremlin Hosts International Meeting of Pro-Family Leaders and It is Accused by The Moscow Times of Throwing a Global Neo-Con Party

By Julio Severo 
In choosing conservative values and spearheading their defense in the United Nations, Russia represents hope for conservative fighters in a world increasingly corrupted by the Western debauchery of free sex, abortion imposition, comprehensive immoral sex education, population control, homosexual indoctrination via media and schools, participants of a forum agreed in September 10 in Moscow, Russia.
Julio Severo and Don Feder in the Kremlin
The Large Family and Future of Humanity Forum (LFFH Forum) opened inside the Kremlin, bringing together conservative politicians and activists from 45 countries, especially the U.S. This kind of event, especially in its international format as has been made by the World Congress of Families, was an original idea of Anatoly Antonov and Allan Carlson. In a dinner near of an old KGB headquarters, Antonov told me that he had been tortured by KGB and sent to the Gulag in the 1960s. He was then a 19-year-old dissident of the Soviet tyranny. Today he is a philosopher and professor in the Lomonosov Moscow State University.
Participants at the LFFH Forum lashed out against abortion, homosexual “marriage” and gay pride parades as threats to traditional values.
According to a LifeSiteNews report, Patriarch Kirill, the Russian Orthodox leader of Moscow, commenced the meeting with a strong endorsement of the family. Metropolitan Hilarion, the head of external relations for the Russian Orthodox, noted the repression against those who stand up for marriage, giving France as an example. He called attention to Europe’s “profound demographic crisis” and lamented that “legalized murder — abortion — is being permitted en masse and nobody says anything.”
Rabbi Berel Lazar, the Chief Rabbi of Russia, said that in the West there has appeared a “strange way of life” rejecting children. “Thank God this is not acceptable in Russia today,” he added.
Rabbi Berel Lazar, the Chief Rabbi of Russia
Remembering that the first law God gave to mankind was to “go forth and multiply,” Rabbi Lazar said, “We need natural families, with a father and mother and a large number of children.”
The president of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the Family, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, addressed the forum by video. He called the family a “cornerstone” of society rather than merely a building block and warned that there are many laws today weakening the family.
President Vladimir Putin sent a greeting to participants via an official from his administration. In his message, Putin spoke about the “large-scale demographic crisis” that civilization faces and “the erosion of moral values” around the world.
Yet, the largest English-language newspaper in Russia, the Moscow Times, lashed out at the Russian and international conservatives, saying that the Russian speakers were “corrupt” and attacking Yelena Mizulina, a conservative State Duma lawmaker who has championed laws banning the adoption of Russian orphans by American homosexuals and banning the promotion of homosexual propaganda to children and adolescents.
Mizulina has been specially targeted by the U.S. and EU sanctions against Russia over Ukraine.
“I am sure that in contemporary Europe it would not be possible to hold a forum like this,” Mizulina told the audience. “Even if they are held there, they are not hosted at the Kremlin, like in Russia, but somewhere on the outskirts,” she said.
The international pro-family leaders praised Russia’s role in defending moral and traditional values.
These leaders included:
Larry Jacobs (U.S.), a famous pro-family leader and member of the Assemblies of God. Jacobs defended pro-family values and attacked socialism. Reportedly, the Human Rights Campaign asked the Obama State Department to investigate Jacobs and his attendance to the Kremlin pro-family event. The Human Rights Campaign is the largest homosexual militant group in the U.S.
Don Feder, an American-Jewish pro-family leader, also attacked socialism and defended traditional values. He told me that he would never have expected such meeting in the Kremlin.
Austin Ruse (U.S.), president of Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute.
Babette Francis (Australia), Endeavour Forum.
Ignacio Arsuaga (Spain), president of HazteOir.org
Sharon Slater (U.S.), president of Family Watch International. From Moscow, Slater went directly to Geneva, where a UN measure to erode parental rights promotes more sexual freedom to children. According to Slater, Russia was sponsoring a measure to defeat this UN intent. She has produced the excellent documentary “Sexual Imperialism.”
Peter Westmore (Australia), president of the National Civic Council.
Jack Hanick (U.S.), ex-Fox News director.
Steve Weber (U.S.), regional director of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) for Russia and Ukraine.
Christine Vollmer (Venezuela), president of the Latin American Alliance for the Life.
John-Henry Westen (Canada), editor-in-chief of LifeSiteNews.
Keith Mason (U.S.), president of Personhood USA.
Brian Brown (U.S.), president of National Organization for Marriage.
And many others.
Among the international pro-family leaders, there were evangelicals, Catholics and Mormons. About 1,000 delegates came from all over the world, including over 200 from the West.
The Gay Star News, a U.S.-based homosexual website, had the headline: “Moscow Large Families conference drafts resolution calling for global ban on ‘gay propaganda.’”
The leftist group People for the American Way and its Right Wing Watch also attacked the Moscow event with the headline: “Moscow Forum Attended By American Activists Ends With Call For More 'Gay Propaganda' Bans.” This is the same group that attacked me, Julio Severo, recently.
In contrast, the Manila Times, the largest newspaper in the Philippines, had a brighter headline: “A moral revolution in Russia.” The article said,
“Despite geopolitical problems in a number of fronts, Russia has tried to steal a march on the West in the area of family life and marriage, which have increasingly become major global concerns. Officially atheist from the 1917 revolution that created the Soviet Union until the end of the Cold War in 1991, Russia is now trying to lead the revival of Christian values in Europe by defending the natural family from the global ‘homosexual lobby.’”
Our pro-life meeting in an Orthodox church in Moscow
The final statement of the Moscow event said:
An Urgent APPEAL
To the Nations of the World

To all people of goodwill in the everywhere: To leaders of all faiths, To the architects of public opinion, To those at the helm of professional, women’s and youth organizations, To the UN General Assembly, To the heads of state and legislative bodies and To the mass media.
 We, the Participants of the Moscow International Forum “Large Family and Future of Humanity” (September 10-11, 2014), express our profound concern because certain countries are pursuing  tenacious policies and an unprecedented propaganda campaign, all of which is leading to the ultimate destruction of the Natural Family − an institution that in a civilized society is the foundation of order, state’s prosperity and social peace. 
The preservation of mankind is based on a system of family and kindred ties that are formed through the bonds of marriage between a male and a female and the children born to them.  This and only this alone, is capable of ensuring the reproduction, stability and continuity of human civilization. All other kinds of sexual relationships or alliances intentionally that exclude the birth of children are meaningless for they are devoid of the notion set down in the very definition of the word “family.” And no political or economic interests can serve as a pretext for replacing the true and time-tested concept of “family” by any kind of surrogate…
We appeal to all people who acknowledge the significance and values of the Natural Family for preserving human civilization:
·        To unite before the threat of total dehumanization of society, to set up a barrier on the road of ideology-lined, state-supported interference in the private lives of people, in an attempt to foist specific sexual lifestyles and preferences of the minority upon the majority;
·        To strive to set forth legislative initiatives in the laws and constitutions of all countries that clearly define the naturally predetermined relationships in the Family as relationships between the male and female, their children and their relatives;
·        To advocate and support the Natural Family as the sole source of preserving the civilization, the life of Mankind;
·        To make use of all thematic international Days (…protection of children, the family, etc.) whose slogans and mottos refer to traditional values, for demonstrating their disagreement with and dissent for State-supported destructive tendencies in the sex and family life, especially of the young people, and consolidating the understanding of a Natural Family as the foundation of human life at the level of the individual, society, state and civilization;
·        To oppose the cynical utilization of women as surrogate mothers in the interests of same-gender liaisons and alliances;
·        To uphold the interests of children and to work for the adoption of legislative bans on all types propaganda concerning homosexual relationships in the environment of children and juveniles;
·        To initiate and support scientific research to study the conditions  and prospects of developing a Natural Family, as well as studying the negative social and psychological effects of raising children in same-gender couples;
·        To support public efforts aimed at ensuring integrity of human life from the moment of conception to natural death, to protect children from influences taken against their individuality, and to uphold the child-rearing rights of parents – both father’s and mother’s;
·        To demand initiatives and directives from the governments and heads of state to ensure protection of the natural family, childhood, and motherhood in both, domestic and foreign policies.
We  urgently call upon the UN General Assembly, the UN Secretary General and the UN Supreme Commissioner for Human Rights that, while formulating the programs of the United Nations, to follow the letter and the spirit of Article 16 in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which underscores the understanding of the Human Family as the only possible and acceptable notion to human civilization, and to proclaim in the foreseeable future a Special Year or Program in support of the Natural Family.
We call upon all people who agree with the given Appeal to sign it and support it for the sake of preserving life and civilization on our Earth.
But this noble motivation was not enough for enemies, among gay activists and socialists in the U.S. and among radicals in Russia.
Steve Weber of CBN and Julio Severo
The Moscow Times’ accusation that we were “Global Neo-Cons” intended to portray us as “neo-conservatives” who, according to Michael Savage in his WND column, have no relation to real conservatives. Savage said,
“The neocons, first in the form of the Trilateral Commission and more recently as the Carlyle Group, thrive on military conflict. When the world is at war, the neocons and the defense contractors who work with them make enormous amounts of money. The neocons don’t care which side you’re on, as long as they can work with you to create a political situation that they can grow into a war from which they will profit.”
Even though The Moscow Times tried to depict us as “inciters of wars,” Savage shows the example of Ukraine, whose intense crisis was not provoked by any of the international pro-life leaders in the Kremlin. He said,
“The Ukrainian ‘revolution’ was fostered and encouraged by Victoria Nuland, Susan Rice and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. These three were instrumental in staging a destabilization campaign. Working with Ukrainian neo-Nazis, they fostered the Ukrainian uprising.” Neocons, according to Savage, are avidly fighting for U.S. geopolitical expansion in Ukraine.
Kayla, a very beautiful American Mormon blonde young woman in the Moscow event, told me that she was a missionary to Crimea before the Russian annexation. She said that she learnt Russian in Crimea because everybody there speaks Russian. She was in the event representing pro-life Mormons in the U.S.
Neocons, who work to promote the supremacy of U.S. geopolitical interests, including the gay supremacy that is now top priority in the U.S. foreign policy, are no friends of American pro-family leaders and international pro-family leaders like me. So The Moscow Times’ accusation is plainly silly.
These geopolitical interests provoke confusion among some leaders.
Before my trip to Moscow, I consulted some pro-life leaders in Brazil and they were “sure” that the pro-life meeting in the Kremlin was a “Putin’s strategy to dominate the worldwide pro-life movement.” With this view, making us “Putin’s puppets,” I was afraid to go. But my friend Scott Lively, who knows Russia very well, assured me that I should go.
No international group gave more support to Russian pro-life leaders than Americans did. But even they suffered the same dilemmas and worries I did, being discouraged by other Americans intent on rejecting Russian pro-life efforts as just political maneuvers. Yet, when dealing with politics, every politician (whether Russian or Brazilian or American) uses us, and we should equally “use” them for pro-family objectives.
The pressure on us came from West and East. If in the West we faced being labeled “Putin’s puppets,” the Russian press treated us just as puppets of Obama and his neocon comrades.
Both charges are false, of course, because our motivation is to defend family values and life. While Russia keeps fighting the homosexual agenda in its own nation and at the United Nations, we international pro-family leaders will help Russia. If Russia backtracks in its pro-family stances, we will support any other nation, big or small, willing to defend the family against the international anti-family onslaught massively funded by Western organizations, foundations, institutions and nations.
If we had any resemblance to neocons, this massive funding, especially from George Soros, would be available to us too. Rather, our funding is often dependent on small and humble donations.
Thanks to my readers and supporters, I was able to represent Brazil in this historic pro-family event in the Kremlin. People from Brazil, the U.S., Romania, Guatemala and Bolivia sent me enough donations to allow me to attend this event. So by their support, I represented also, in a certain measure, these nations.
My gratitude also to Alexey Komov and all the other Russian pro-family leaders who took care of us in Moscow and to Monica Reissenweber for my short stay in a hotel in Frankfurt, Germany.

Ex-CIA Agent: U.S. Established Shariah in Iraq and Afghanistan


Ex-CIA Agent: U.S. Established Shariah in Iraq and Afghanistan

Tim Brown
In a recent interview with WND, former Central Intelligence Agency Middle East expert Clare Lopez not only said that Barack Obama had switched sides in the war on terror, but she stated openly that the U.S. were the ones who helped establish Shariah law in the Iraq and Afghanistan constitutions.
As we have reported before, this goes back further than just an issue with ISIS or Al-Qaeda. As Pamela Geller pointed out in March 2010, he has always been a pro-jihad, usurper of the office of the presidency.
“In a stunning and historic reversal of American foreign policy, the United States is now backing one of the same horses it fought during World War II.” She wrote. “Instead of fighting against Nazism and racism, Obama has effectively joined the jihad waged during World War II by the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini.”
While Clare Lopez told WND, “the global war on terror had been an effort to ‘stay free of Shariah,’ or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates,” she would later point the finger back at the Bush administration without realizing it.
In response to Barack Obama’s hasty retreat from Afghanistan and Iraq, knowing that Islam would dominate those cultures, she said, “But we’d already written their Shariah constitutions, so the actual ultimate physical domination was already prepared with the legal precedent and foundation.”
So, when were these Shariah constitutions established? They weren’t established under Obama, but under Bush.
Afghanistan’s constitution was approved in January 2004 and signed on January 26, 2004 by current President Hamid Karzai. It clearly contains Shariah compliant rulings, when the Constitution doesn’t speak to a particular issue. These rulings can then appeal to Hanafi jurisprudence.
As for Iraq, the current constitution was approved in October of 2005. Though the Iraq constitution contains a section in it which says there is the right to freedom of religion, it also says that Islam is the state religion and that it is the foundation for the country’s laws. Additionally, it states:
* No law may be enacted that contradicts the established provisions of Islam
* No law may be enacted that contradicts the principles of democracy.
* No law may be enacted that contradicts the rights and basic freedoms stipulated in this Constitution.
Hopefully, you see the obvious problem here. Since Muhammad taught his followers to kill the infidels (all non-Muslims, specifically Christians and Jews), then how does one not contradict themselves by stating that one has freedom of religion and yet, the law cannot contradict the Constitution? The fact is that is not the case.
I’m not here to defend the Bush administration at all in any of this, but they were the forerunners for what we see coming out of the Obama administration. Barack Obama has just stepped it up. He hasn’t switched sides. He’s always been on the side of Islam, period.
While Lopez told WND that the goal of the War on Terror after September 11, 2001 was to defeat jihadism in the Middle East and globally, the fact remains that Bush would never call the enemy out. He would never say we were at war with Islam. He said we were at war with those that “hijacked Islam.” These are similar words to the capitulations we saw of Lt. Col. Allen West in a letter shortly before he left office.
WND reported that Lopez affirmed my claims that there is no “radical” Islam, only Islam.
“Above all, we must acknowledge that the enemy is supremacist forces of Islamic jihad,” Lopez told WND. “We must name, acknowledge, confront the enemy as he is – not as we wish him to be.”
She scoffed at the notion that what others call radical Islam was a “defeated ideology.”
“Oh? What ideology is that? The 1,400-year-old one that’s already made mincemeat out of six or seven major world empires? That one?”
The making “mincemeat out of six or seven major world empires,” is exactly what Walid Phares was pointing to in his book, Future Jihad. America is doing the exact same thing, empires of the past have done in fighting against Mohammedans. Ultimately, they go bankrupt and the Islamists overrun them. Does this ring a bell with anyone as to what is going on today?
She added, “Everybody waits for the U.S. to stumble into the scene once again like some deus ex machine, so the whole charade can begin all over again. American blood and treasure spent, amidst clamor for infidels to exit Muslim lands, boiling Muslim rage about the imperative to strike ‘the far enemy’ again, hit the kuffar (non-Muslim) in his homeland, even while the Caliphate consolidates its rule, begins to govern as the Islamic State it claims to be, and, all the while, the wealthy-beyond-imagination sheikhdoms supposedly most threatened by this ‘un-Islamic’ horde – and the emerging Shi’ite hegemon of the Persian Gulf – respond lackadaisically, if at all. What is wrong with this picture?”
Understanding the difference between Sunni or Shiite, doesn’t really matter. The issue is always Islam.
Ms. Lopez also went on to say exactly how Obama was picking up from Bush and now implementing the “physical domination” side of things.
“In many ways, al-Qaeda prepared the ground for the Islamic State,” she said. “Al-Qaeda, which means, ‘the base,’ did its job, which was to awaken the Muslim masses, to prod the ummah to action against the infidel after a long hiatus. It spawned off-shoot franchises across the globe, not to mention in the virtual spaces of the Internet. It did its job and may now be superseded by [ISIS]. We shall see about that.”
The infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into key positions in our federal government has also been a serious problem. From Hillary Clinton’s chief deputy Huma Abedin to the many people in high security who advise Barack Obama, such as Mohammad Elibiary, these people do not have America’s best interests at heart. They have her destruction in mind.
Lopez found it impossible to understand the current administration’s consistent apologizing for Islam, “even in the face of such atrocities as the Foley beheading,” adding, they “take pains to assure the world they don’t think IS, (or the Islamic State, also called ISIS) or whichever perpetrator it was, has anything to do with Islam. How can they possibly believe that genuinely when everything these jihadis do tracks directly to the literal text of Quran, hadiths and Shariah?”
It’s not hard to understand. They are Islamists and they are Islamic supporters. This is what the Muslim Brotherhood has advanced from the beginning. Read their own handwriting!
Though I discount her claims that former Egyptian President Morsi was not involved in the attacks in Benghazi, I do like her perspective on dealing with the Islamic threat though, and hold this view as my own:
“If [ISIS] makes one move against our regional partners – Israel, Jordan, the Kurds – we clobber them, then leave,” she said. “If we determine that [ISIS] is plotting by itself or in conjunction with a nation-state, or other sub-national terror organization like Hezbollah, again – like Iran did with al-Qaeda and Hezbollah – we clobber both of them, all of them, then leave. No nation building. They pick up the pieces, not us.”
Ultimately, our nation building in Afghanistan and Iraq was doomed from the start because we left the root of the evil intact. If you want real justice, real law, real peace and prosperity, in a land, then uproot the Quran and install the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. General Douglas MacArthur, following World War II, called on Christian missionaries to come and aid Japan and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Christians largely ignored the call. In what is taking place now, America is afraid to call Islam the enemy and as such she is unwilling to uproot it from the culture and has allowed the seeds to be planted in our own back yard. It’s high time we started confronting the Islamists here before worrying about those 8,000 miles away.
