Taking the Jihad Temperature - A Gathering Storm Special Series – DISINFORMATION Part 4
If you throw a frog into boiling water, he will jump out. If you put it in cold water and slowly turn up the heat, he will not notice the rise in temperature and will eventually boil.
The Islamists are boiling our frog and though this blog and hundreds like it record almost daily the rise in the Jihad temperature, unless we see how far and fast the temperature has risen, we will not know how far along our boiling has progressed.
So, the Gathering Storm will be posting only once a week but these weekly posts will take the Jihadist temperature by looking back at news and events over the last two years. Over the next several weeks in the areas of intimidation, infiltration, disinformation and those appeasers and apologists who either knowingly or unknowingly advance the Jihad agenda, the Gathering Storm will show how far our frog has been boiled.
By seeing the boiling water around us, we can see how far the boiling has progressed.
Here’s this week’s look back at the rising Jihad temperature of DISINFORMATION !! And remember – this is just a sampling of Jihadist Disinformation. More to follow.
Storm Track Disinformation: Smear Tactics of Appeasers Against Islamist Resistance in
Much has been written about the Islamafication of Europe but resistance has so far been either non-existent, in collusion with the Islamists or generally non-violent when it does occur. But an Anti-Jihad organization called "Stop the Islamisation of Denmark” has kindled another crisis.
In Denmark, the chairman of the extreme rightist association that wants the enforcement of a ban on the Koran, claiming it has violent content, has now founded an organization of 'armed fighting with Muslims against Jihad.'
The publication of the Prophet Mohammad caricatured as a terrorist in a Danish newspaper in 2005 led to the uprising of Muslims. Within the passing time, the caricature crisis has settled; however, the Islam-Christianity fight and racist approaches have started to rise.
Anders Gravers, who filed a complaint against the Koran containing violence, has established an organization named "Stop the Islamisation of
," which has kindled another crisis. Denmark
According to a smear campaign orchestrated by the Danish newspaper Nyhedsavisen.
Gravers has founded an association "Anti-Jihad" in
and has said they will have an armed fight against Muslims. The group is made up of SIAD, Frit Danmark, Nationale Danskere, I Media, og Frie Danske Nationalister. The new entity is trying to gather the other extreme rightist foundations under the same roof. Denmark
The article describes this collection of non-political associations as being armed and dangerous and colours them as extreme right wing fanatics. All of that is simply not true. Furthermore, the article by "journalist" Rune Eltard-Sørensen, also states that the Center for Vigilant Freedom formed the group. Which is also not true.
SIAD chairman Anders Gravers has of course replied. Here are some excerpts of the letter.
"Armed network will stop Islam in
Firstly, the title in itself is a direct lie. The Anti-jihad movement is not armed. During a telephone interview on the 7th May the SIAD Chairman clearly stated that Anti-jihad operates only within the framework of the law, as Rune Eltard-Sørensen was clearly interested in this and was this the case?
The subtitle in the article states: "With loaded weapons and support from abroad, a newly formed extreme right wing group will set the agenda concerning the debate on immigration". As mentioned before, there are no weapons in the Anti-jihad movement. Anti-jihad is neither left, right nor middle orientated. We have no political agenda as such, in that we are broadspectered and have only one goal, That is, to stop the islamisation of
Further in the article is stated: "On saturday Anti-jihad will take to the streets and demonstrate for "more freedom for citizens - less control over gangs". The initiative is aimed at concentrating the debate on immigration". Once again, a lie. Our slogan is "more freedom for citizens - more control over gangs", which can be clearly read on our website, www. siad.dk
When you can’t win a debate with your opponent then lie. The leftist controlled media in Eurabia has that tactic down pat.
Storm Track Disinformation: Orthodox or Moderate, Islamist Ideology is Still the Same
A recent leftist rant in BlogCritics Magazine tried – again – to place the radicalization of Muslims on our attempts to defend ourselves against the Salafist elements of Islam. What the writer fails to understand is that it’s not Salafist or any other orthodox form of Islam that threatens our world today but the ideology that individual Muslims hold that poses the danger.
In other words, not all branches of fundamental Islam advocate violence, but all contribute to the process of radicalization. The article is perfect example of this willful or unconscious misunderstanding. It’s just and another form of disinformation that Islam’s useful idiots spew on a daily basis.
This is from Asma Khalid, a Muslim woman pursuing her master's degree in Middle Eastern/Islamic studies at the University of Cambridge, England and proves my point. The ignorance of her position is telling.
I am a Muslim who embraces peace. But, if we must attach stereotypical tags, I'd rather be considered "orthodox" than "moderate." "Moderate," in this context, implies that Muslims who are more orthodox are somehow backward and violent and that, in our current cultural climate, progress and peace are restricted to "moderate" Muslims. To be a "moderate" Muslim is, thus, to be a "good," malleable Muslim in the eyes of Western society.
Notice her choice of words – a moderate must be a “malleable Muslim”. By malleable does she mean adhering to modern concepts of personal freedoms, civil rights, and secular government? I think so because…
True orthodoxy is simply the attempt to adhere piously to a religion's tenets.
In her eyes do those religious tenets supersede the hard earned Western tenets of freedom and democracy? And by supporting her fundamental orthodox Salafist religious tenets, tenets that drives Muslim violence throughout the world, isn’t she contributing to the process of radicalization? Ms. Khalid, the end result of your pious adherence to your religious tenets leads to this. From the Pedestrian Infidel.
, the JAKIM (Islamic Affairs Department or the dreaded Morality Police) arrest people for kissing. Then they steal dead bodies from their grieving families. Then they harass foreign tourists in the middle of the night and demand 'proof of religion' documentation. And they hold innocent people indefinitely on the grounds of "religious rehabilitation." Now, Malaysia 's Taliban has opted for a new 'enforcement tactic' - the kidnapping of entire families. Malaysia
The writer of the article ends her diatribe against
If the U.S. wants to continue fighting every Muslim who does not fall into their category as a moderate Muslim, either because they follow a particular strand of the religion or don't agree with the U.S.' actions in and policies for Muslim countries, then they will be fighting forever. I just hope they realize that having an extreme belief in true Islam does not make you a terrorist, before a "clash of civilizations" becomes a dreadful reality.
BUZZ!! WRONG!! It’s not an extreme belief in true Islam that makes a Muslim the enemy of modern civilization but the ideology of Islamism that he or she holds that distinguishes them as a Jihadist – either the violent or non-violent kind.
In a nutshell – it’s the ideology, stupid!
Storm Track Disinformation: What The Left Has Not Learned From History
The attempts at painting parallels of imperialism between current day America and the colonial powers of old is a common theme among the Left who continuously apologize for real imperialism conducted under the banner of Marxism and Communism and their poster child Stalin and his ilk.
The latest attempt that’s getting wide fawning by the MSM is a recent book by William Dalrymple entitled The Last Mughal: The Fall of a Dynasty, Delhi, 1857. What’s telling about the book is the conspicuous analysis of the revolt in Muslim vs Christian terms and the utter lack of morals displayed by the Left in service to their neurotic belief in modern day American imperialism that see the free market of capitalism as imperialistic.
Briefly, what started as an act of defiance by some Indian soldiers who refused to use rifle bullets said to be greased with beef and pork fat (a rumor never substantiated spread by anti-British agents) quickly became a popular rebellion against the British East India Company that ruled most of
Dalrymple uses this historic rebellion as a tool to berate
It is one thing to conquer a country. It is quite another to stay there and try to force-feed your ideas to a part of the world that has its own traditions.
And what are the ‘traditions’ that needed to be defended. In his article in Time magazine Dalrymple is sparse on his explanation yet what he does say is telling.
What lay behind the uprising? The British, through the East India Company, had been trading in
Notice how he casually throws out the term Muslim without defining what kind hostility or behavior those Muslim regimes represent. He does give a hint of it.
The Forward Policy soon developed an evangelical flavor; the plan was to impose not just British laws and technology on
Umm. Excuse me. Christian sensibilities? That sounds like Christian sensibilities are like being offended by wearing light colors in the winter months. And how about these Christian sensibilities being offended?
On the evening of Sunday 10 May 1857, 150 years ago next week, 300 mutinous sepoys from
And this comment – the most telling of all.
What is striking about so many of the proclamations coming out of the uprising's storm centre,
A religious articulation. Know what that meant?
British men and women who had converted to Islam - and there were a surprising number of those in
- were not hurt; but Indians who had converted to Christianity were cut down immediately. Delhi
Yes. Mr. Dalrymple, you are correct about how little history changes. But you are looking in the wrong direction. It’s Islam that has not changed and what we need to learn from and not the trumped up charges of Leftists that see
Storm Track Disinformation: The YouTube Jihad
Ever wonder why videos critical of Islam disappear from YouTube? This might be the answer. This email was circulated among YouTube users encouraging the formation of a private group to promote Islam through gaming YouTube's favorites system: Hat Tip to NewsBusters.
Date: May 14, 2007, 11:18 AM
to all muslim brothers and sisters please read
Our Islamic videos will not get full attention unless they come in the top ranked videos in youtube. For this purpose we all Muslims have to rate the videos to 5 stars and have to add them to our favorites. This will not be achieved if we Muslim Youtubers are scattered, i.e., one muslim rating one video and other muslim rating another. So we have to be highly organized. We will do a massive campaign of focusing to rate a single video collectively at once, so that it can show up on the top videos at least in the “Today’s top videos” list.
Doing this job in an open broadcast or in a public group is not a good idea. So it should be done in a private group. I have made the private group with the name: Burn the Boats. The group URL is in accordance to its goal as:
How to act immediately?
1- If a memeber wants a video to rate 5 stars and to be added as favorite video and to add a comment in video, then he will send the video link as:
Good Video: [video link here.....]
2- If a memeber wants a video to rate to 1 star and as an inappropriate video, then he will send the video link as :
Bad Video: [video link here...]
(Link sender must mention if it should be rated as hatespeech or graphical violence etc.)
#### Please propagate this message to the youtubers who are confirmed to be Muslims. ###
Do not send this message to any person who you doubt if he is Muslim or not. Any brother/sister who wants an invitation to the group, he can send me a short personal message.
A search at YouTube for the name of this group reveals where the title comes from: Burn the Boats.
Tariq bin Ziyad, he led the muslims to conquer
Tariq’s strategy of burning his boats did three things. Firstly, he was now committed to either victory or death. Secondly, it caused his men to focus totally on the job at hand. Thirdly, it scared the hell out of the Spanish. What sort of crazy men burn their boats in the face of overwhelming odds?"
The Spanish scared? They probably laughed their asses off. Or perhaps this act of ‘craziness’ was sign of Muslim behavior to come – suicide in the name of Allah.
Storm Track Disinformation: Muslims to Free World – Broaden Your Concept of Democracy
Muslim intellectuals will go to no length to confuse the infidel. One such tactic to keep the infidel off balance is the constant comparison of Islam to democracy as if the two could coexist. But the Muslim intellectual always makes a semantic slip that shows the true nature of the misunderstanding between democracy and Islam.
"What is needed is a broadening of the concept of democracy and respect for other cultures and civilizations outside the narrow Western perspective," said Rashwan, who is the director of the Comparative Politics Unit at the Al Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies and editor-in-chief of Directory of World Islamic Movements.
First, who is Rashwan?
Islam and democracy are not mutually exclusive concepts, argues Diaa Rashwan, an Egyptian specialist on Islamist ideology and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Catch that? The Muslim Brotherhood. The very same Brotherhood that’s currently going to great lengths promoting itself as a democratic movement in Islam – the very same organization that is pursing a plan to Islamatize the world.
Back to the first quote – "What is needed is a broadening of the concept of democracy and respect for other cultures and civilizations outside the narrow Western perspective.” Excuse me! Broaden the concept of democracy? The narrow Western perspective? What is this clown talking about?
The definition of a true democracy is very simple.
1- It a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
2- It is a secular government separated ruled by under the laws of man while at the some time protecting one’s practice of their beliefs.
3- It is a government that protects the basic freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
A government ‘broadened’ to include the concepts of Islamic laws which Rashwan is referring to is no democracy at all.
And the usual Islamic demand.
"There is genuine desire for democracy in
And by cultural traditions he means the rule by Sharia Law and here’s why that’s antithetical to democracy.
Storm Track Disinformation: Oh, Please! Enough Already!
Like most bloggers, I skim the news everyday looking for content ideas for my daily posts. In the process, one can get pretty frustrated reading the almost daily bleating of the appeasers and apologists trying to explain the whys and wherefores of Islam like jihad does not mean ‘Holy War’, the myth of Muslim support for terror, and how the great majority of Muslims are moderate and do not support the Islamist agenda.
One article explains that the word ‘Jihad’ doesn’t mean Holy War but ‘striving’, while another article claims that Muslims do not support terror (74 percent of respondents in Indonesia agreed that terrorist attacks are "never justified"; in Pakistan, that figure was 86 percent; in Bangladesh, 81 percent – if true that means 26 percent of Muslims in Indonesia, 14 percent in Pakistan, and 19 percent in Bangladesh do support terror. If you take the hundreds of millions of Muslims in those areas, those percentages are pretty damn scary), and another article tries to show how the majority of Muslims are moderate yet is blind to the fact that they receive indirect support form the moderates.
Add the bellyaching of the left useful idiots who constantly try and misdirect the argument away for the ideology and claim ‘if only they weren’t so exploited by the decadent West we would have peace.’
Enough is enough!
First almost any religion including Christianity has had its period of violent proselytizing. Pointing to verses in the Bible as proof that Christianity teaches the love of your fellow man while Christians were slaughtering each other and anyone who disagreed with the ‘Word of God’ during the Middle Ages, was small comfort to those who live through the Thirty Years War and the Inquisition.
The problem is this. Though religions may be made by infallible holy men from heaven, they have to be lived out by average fallible human beings here in earth. Every Western religion teaches peace but their history shows that they will kill those who do not believe as they do to attain it. It’s not WHAT is written by the religion that’s important, but HOW the religion is practiced. So let’s stop talking of how Islam is this or Islam is that and look at how it is being practiced.
Today, the 21st century, Christians and Jews preach peace. The mouthpieces for Muslims preach war. It’s quite simple to see. Almost 95 percent of all conflict in the world today involve Muslims.

Get the picture.
Then we have the apologists who see the conflict not as the ideology of freedom against the ideology of Islamism but between the planet’s rich and poor.
The prime minister of Malasia, Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi, says attributing problems between the west and the Muslim world to a clash of civilizations diverts attention away from the real source of discontent. The key to stabilizing the Muslim world is to improve economic conditions and reduce the high levels of "poverty, illiteracy and unemployment"
If so, then answer me this. Why are the many other poverty stricken countries in the Caribbean, South and Central America,
So enough already. Its time the apologists and useful idiots cease trotting out the same old horse and get them to address the real problem.
It’s the ideology, stupid! The ideology that drives the Islamo-fascist agenda of Islamism. Find it, confront it and destroy it – wherever and whenever it is found.
Storm Track Disinformation: Terrorism? Much
About Nothing Ado
“You are going to ignore this particular problem until it swims up and bites you on the ass.”
That quote from Matt Hooper in the movie Jaws pretty much foretells the outcome of the Left because of their beliefs about the war on terror. As I wrote in a previous blog, Who’s Really Creating Terrorists?
When you fight a WAR doesn’t the enemy create more foot soldiers to replace others that are killed? Didn’t
And the denial of war goes even further when terrorist plots are uncovered by the Government like the Fort Dix Six. Their response is Much Ado About Nothing.
The big story over the weekend involved the arrest of several men involved in an alleged conspiracy to destroy
Or accuse the Government of Another Fake Terror Plot.
The New York Daily News on Monday carried five pages on the "plot," with a ludicrous front-page headline, "Evil Ate at Table Eight," promoting an inside interview with the Brooklyn waitress who served a meal to Russell Defreitas, whom the paper describes as the "mastermind" of the alleged plot, just before he was picked up by federal agents and police.
Yet the profile of Defreitas, a 63-year-old
"He couldn't even fix brakes," the former friend said. "He never built bombs."
How do you think this poo-pooing of terrorist plots would be reported by, let’s say the Huffington Post or Daily Kos, if it was uncovered back in 2000.
January 13th, 2000
John Q. Liberal
Hot on the heals of the uncovering of the Millennium terrorist plot, the White House held a press conference today announcing the discovery of a second attempt to destroy the World Trade Towers. Authorities were also looking into an alleged addition to the plot to destroy the Pentagon and White House.
In an attempt to defer the current problems plaguing the illegal Bush Administration, the White House has dreamed up a lulu of a plot more like from a
Hollywoodscreenplay than reality.
Now get this.
The plot is to use US airlines as cruise missiles and fly them into buildings. And how will the terrorists hijack these airlines? With box cutters! But it gets better.
The plot includes terrorists crossing our borders and taking flying lessons in the
. And this is the best part. They will inform the flight schools that they don’t want to learn to make these sophisticated pieces of technology take off or land. Only fly the plane! US
Could you imagine the stupidity? “Um let me get this straight. You’re Middle-Eastern, you don’t want to graduate with a flying certificate. You don’t want to learn to take off or land, right? ‘Hello, FBI.’
This ‘joint operation’ is more like a comedy between the Marx Brothers and the Keystone Kops presented by an Administration to deter our attention from the worsening economy, growing poverty, stem cell research, and tax breaks for the rich.
Please, President Bush. Don’t insult our progressive intelligence. To paraphrase Sidney Falco at the end of Sweet Smell of Success, these Bushies have such contempt for people, it makes them stupid.
I’ll let Matt Hooper respond to such a post. “I'm not going to waste my time arguing with a man who's lining up to be a hot lunch.”
Those are examples of the rising Jihad temperature of for this week. When seen in groups like this, the slow boil becomes obvious.
