Storm Track Infiltration: European Multiculturalism in Disarray Over Islam

“Islam is a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture and are obsessed with the inferiority of their power.” - Samuel P. Huntington, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order

SperoNews recently ran an article entitled “Islam challenges Europe view religion is private.” Poor little Europe. It seems one their cherished politically correct tenets have been gored by a culture that refuses to play their ‘Kumbaya’ multiculturalist game.

The growth of Islam in Europe is challenging deeply-held notions that faith is a private matter which should be banished from public life, a prominent sociologist of religion has told a gathering of European Christian leaders. "We ignore the presence of Islam at our peril," Professor Grace Davie of the University of Exeter in Britain told leaders from Europe's main Christian traditions at a 15-18 February meeting in Wittenberg in Germany. "This is a catalyst for a much more profound change in the religious landscape of Europe."

Perhaps, the ‘Defenders of the Faith’ are awaking to the threat to Europe’s laissez fair’s approach to religion.

"The presence of Islam is a catalyst that has reopened issues that Europeans thought were closed," Davie said on 16 February. "You cannot privatise Islam. We have seen that."

Absolutely correct! Islam is not just a religion but a comprehensive way of living that reaches deep into every knick and cranny of societal life.

The notion that religion should be banished from public life - and particularly from the state and from the education system - was widespread in Europe, Davie noted. But in part due to the presence of Islam, religion was increasingly likely to penetrate the public sphere in Europe, a tendency being encouraged by the ever more obvious presence of religion in the modern global order.

Not just a religion Ms. Davie. Islam is a full ideology and its penetration seeks to change the Judeo-Christian culture of the last 2000 years.

Now back to the disease of multiculturalism. As I said before, the Islamists and the Muslims that support them in the non-Muslim world refuse to play the multicultural balkanization game. Celebrating the wonders of diversity is not in the Islamist playbook. They’re objective is to dominate not assimilate refusing to accept the values of their host country – whether born the re or not.

The doctrine of multi-culturalism has alienated an entire generation of young Muslims and made them increasingly radical, a report has found. In stark contrast with their parents, growing numbers sympathise with extreme teachings of Islam, with almost four in ten wanting to live under Sharia law in Britain. The study identifies significant support for wearing the veil in public, Islamic schools and even punishment by death for Muslims who convert to another religion.

Most alarmingly, 13 per cent of young Muslims said they "admired" organisations such as Al Qaeda which are prepared to "fight the West".

The poll exposes a fracture between the attitudes of Muslims aged 16 to 24, most of whom were born in Britain, and those of their parents’ generation, who are more likely to have been immigrants.

Even the leftist socialist Ministers are having second thoughts.

A series of Labour ministers have broken recently with the idea that different communities should not be forced to integrate but should be allowed to maintain their own culture and identities.

Trevor Phillips, head of the Commission for Racial Equality, and Dr John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, have also expressed serious doubts about multi-culturalism.

Academic Munira Mirza, lead author of the report, said: "The emergence of a strong Muslim identity in Britain is, in part, a result of multi-cultural policies implemented since the 1980s which have emphasised difference at the expense of shared national identity and divided people along ethnic, religious and cultural lines."

What a surprise. Dived the nation into little balkanized cultural states and then wonder why the youth feel more obligated to their minority culture than the nation as a whole. That’s not surprising, really. With the implementation of the European Union, the EU Ministers have tried their best to subjugate the nationalism of the European countries and make them submit to a Union run by a handful of beaucratic elitist Ministers.

Here’s more bad news from the survey.

While only 17 per cent of over-55s said they would prefer to live under Sharia law, that increased to 37 per cent of those aged 16 to 24.

The poll found that just 19 per cent of Muslims over 55 would prefer to send their children to Islamic state schools. That increased to 37 per cent of those aged 16 to 24.

If a Muslim converts to another religion, 36 per cent of 16-to-24-year-olds thought this should be punished by death, compared with 19 per cent of 55s and over.

According to the poll, 74 per cent of those aged 16 to 24 prefer Muslim women to wear the veil, compared with only 28 per cent of over 55s.

And just over a quarter – 28 per cent – believed that authorities in Britain had gone "over the top" in trying not to offend Muslims.

We must prevent the ideology of Islamism from penetrating our society. If not, ours could well vanish from history.

Winds of War: Is There a Light at the End of the Tunnel?

All of us anti-jihadists have for several years blogged about the Islamist’s threat to our freedom loving civilization and those that appease and support that threat. Some of us have tried to educate the masses for many years, others for just a year or less. All of us wonder if we are doing any good or just ‘preaching to the choir’. So, we might want to stop and take a breather and see some of the advancement in the Muslim communities that the anti-jihadist bloggers is contributing to.

I’d like to submit that there may just be a light at the end of the tunnel – and that light is not from an oncoming train.

First, think about this fellow bloggers. Many of us have been at this for only several short years and this conflict between the Islamist ideology and that of the free world is just in its beginnings – really. It’s in its beginnings because we are only now fully understanding the threat that is unfolding and some of us are able to piece together and identify the actual tactics that they’re using. It’s becoming clear that there are more than one jihads in play here. Militant jihad is only the most well-known. But the litigation, media, institutional, cultural, demographic, and economic and financial jihads, and the Muslims that support them, are only now being identified.

Second, over the last year or so, there have been individual Muslims or scholars on Islam like Walid, Hirsi Ali, and Spencer who have risen to the challenge, regardless of the mainstream media’s ambivalence, and have voiced their opposition to the Islamist agenda.

To me, this is encouraging and should be seen as real progress in such a short time as seen thorough the anti-jihadist window of last few years. Here are some recent examples of why I mean.

Lately, there have been individual but not so publicized news items like these that prove that we are having some effect on the debate. This is an open letter sent by Ibrahim Abdul Mu’min, the NY Chapter President of the Free Muslim Coalition Against Terrorism.

I am a Muslim, a Conservative, Patriotic, American-born, anti-terrorist, Muslim. I believe in Allah*, his mercy, and his prophets. I believe in the mission of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh)*. However… I care nothing for the phony fahtwahs* of mad-mullahs. I denounce the scholars-for-petrol-dollars, the jihad ravings of insane, homicide bombers, and the Wahabi House-of-Saud fraud. I will stand against all terrorist activities, completely, with no apologetic, leftist, misgivings.

It is a deliberate, heretical, misinterpretation of the Holy Qur’an by power-hungry, Islamic-Fascist gangsters who care nothing for the words of Allah or his prophets! It is Fascism*, I have been warned by other Muslims not to use this word... but the oppressive and brutal dictatorships that foster, aid, and abet terrorism can be called nothing else. In this repressive, terrorist view of Islam there is no communion of man and God…no beautiful mingling of soul and spirit…no soft, sweet smells so beloved by the Prophet (pbuh)…. Never. The smell of this type of Fascist Islam is the smell of violence and death…the smell of blood and burning.

Another article about Muslim’s who see the danger posed by their mosques.

Gina Khan is a British Muslim woman who lives near the men suspected of a plot to kidnap and kill a Muslim soldier. She says that it’s time to stop the radicals, and to stop being afraid of them. Gina Khan is a very brave woman. Born in Birmingham 38 years ago to Pakistani parents, she has run away from an arranged marriage, dressed herself in jeans and dared to speak out against the increasing radicalisation of her community.

Over the past 15 years, she says, there has been an influx of jihadist thinking into her part of Birmingham. Bookshops sell radical literature and the mosques preach separatism and hatred. The Government and the white Establishment have allowed it to happen. And she is outraged about it. “It’s all happening on your doorstep,” she says, “and Britain is still blind to the real threat that is embedded here now.

“I truly believe that all these mosques here are importing jihad. The radical teaching is filtering through, and these mosques are not regulated. They are supporting everything that is wrong about Islam. We within the community knew this. People are lying. They are in denial. They knew they were bringing in radicals. “But there are still more English and British people, no matter what, and if they got together and wanted to stamp out this radicalism, they could. I am wasting my time talking to my own people; that is why I am sitting here talking to you, to open your eyes.”

And this on the veil controversy in the UK.

Britain's first Muslim peer has condemned women wearing veils as "a barrier to integration" and called for an end to their use.

Reigniting the controversial debate over the wearing of the face veil, or niqab, Lord Ahmed of Rotherham said there was no religious reason why Muslim women should wear them and that they were now causing society more harm than good.

The Yorkshire peer, who last night spoke out over veils in a debate in the heart of the Arab world, stressed that a sensible discussion was needed urgently within Muslim communities about whether veils represented a danger to integration in British society.

He backed the motion "This House believes the face veil is a barrier to integration in the West" at a debate in Doha, Qatar.

He told the Yorkshire Post: "The veil is now a mark of separation, segregation and defiance against mainstream British culture.

Add these news stories to women questioning the second class status of Muslim women claiming sexism is rife in many Muslim communities, Muslim leaders in Australia back plan to fly the Australian flag outside mosques, and even a Saudi journalist and expert on Islamic movements and Islamic fundamentalism as well as Saudi affairs wrote that the Muslim Brotherhood should be disbanded.

Finally, there are real anti-jihadist organizations that have come into being that are not the mouthpieces of the Islamists.

The Islamic Forum for Democracy was formed in March of 2003 by a group of Muslim professionals in the Phoenix Valley of Arizona. The group's founder is M. Zuhdi Jasser, M.D. He felt that AIFD could formally articulate the fact that in commentary and scholarship that many Muslims believe that they are able to practice their faith more freely and more Islamically in America than in any other place in the world.

AIFD seeks to make a small contribution to the body of thought which articulates an understanding of Islam which separates religion and state and is in complete harmony with the U.S. Constitution and our citizenship pledge.

In the wake of 9/11 and a series of terrorist attacks in Indonesia, President Wahid and the founder of LibForAll established the LibForAll Foundation - inspired by the methods used by President Wahid's own ancestors to defend Javanese culture from religious extremism five centuries ago. Within Indonesia, they have formed a network of opinion leaders in the fields of religion, education, popular culture, government, business and the media working to preserve their culture's enlightened embrace of religious tolerance and diversity in the face of a renewed tide of extremism that is sweeping the entire Muslim world.

Then we have CAIR and the MAS– that blatant supporter of the Islamist cause. But as it turns out, they may not speak for as many Muslims as they think. The 910 Group reports:

“An inspection of CAIR’s most recent publicly available IRS Form 990 (2004) shows for that year they received $119,029 in membership dues for that year (line 3). But at $25 per membership (the current rate is $35), that would mean that in 2004, CAIR only had 4,761 dues-paying members – less than 5,000 members out of 8 million Muslims in America. This would mean that CAIR only represents 1 out of every 1,680 Muslims. Even if a lower 6 million Muslim population figure were assumed, CAIR could still only claim representation for 1 out of every 1,260 Muslims for that year.

“MAS is in even less representative than CAIR. In 2004, MAS received $87,299 in membership dues -- a dramatic decrease in membership from 2003 ($366,613 in members dues received) and 2002 ($378,993 received). Membership has declined so rapidly for MAS that they have stopped offering memberships on their website altogether, though MAS has not publicly acknowledged, let alone explained, their stunning membership decline since 9/11.”

Are all these positive signs? Don’t know for sure. But there is some courage in the Muslim community when facing those who want to advance the Islamist agenda. It will take some time to see.

Or to quote Einstein, “Civilization is a race between education and catastrophe.”

Winds of War: Where’s the Muslim Outrage?

Neal Boortz wrote this piece, and recited it on the air to a Muslim who called in complaining about – oh you know, Muslims being victimized and taking the rap for a small minority of Muslims who are causing all the trouble in the world.

But a Canada Survey proves otherwise.

But first here's Neal’s list of Muslim atrocities that have not produced the Muslim outrage that's due as read to the distressed Muslim caller.

  • Muslims fly commercial airliners into buildings in New York City. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslim officials block the exit where school girls are trying to escape a burning building because their faces were exposed. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims cut off the heads of three teenaged girls on their way to school in Indonesia. A Christian school. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims murder teachers trying to teach Muslim children in Iraq. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims murder over 80 tourists with car bombs outside cafes and hotels in Egypt. No Muslim outrage.
  • A Muslim attacks a missionary children’s school in India. Kills six. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims slaughter hundreds of children and teachers in Beslan, Russia. Muslims shoot children in the back. No Muslim outrage.
  • Let’s go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims fire rocket-propelled grenades into schools full of children in Israel. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims murder more than 50 commuters in attacks on London subways and busses. Over 700 are injured. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims massacre dozens of innocents at a Passover Seder. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims murder innocent vacationers in Bali. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslim newspapers publish anti-Semitic cartoons. No Muslim outrage
  • Muslims are involved, on one side or the other, in almost every one of the 125+ shooting wars around the world. No Muslim outrage.
  • Muslims beat the charred bodies of Western civilians with their shoes, then hang them from a bridge. No Muslim outrage.
  • Newspapers in Denmark and Norway publish cartoons depicting Mohammed. Muslims are outraged.

Dead children. Dead tourists. Dead teachers. Dead doctors and nurses. Death, destruction and mayhem around the world at the hands of Muslims .. no Muslim outrage ... but publish a cartoon depicting Mohammed with a bomb in his turban and all hell breaks loose. Come on, is this really about cartoons? They're rampaging and burning flags. They're looking for Europeans to kidnap. They're threatening innkeepers and generally raising holy Muslim hell not because of any outrage over a cartoon. They're outraged because it is part of the Islamic jihadist culture to be outraged. You don't really need a reason. You just need an excuse. Wandering around, destroying property, murdering children, firing guns into the air and feigning outrage over the slightest perceived insult is to a jihadist what tailgating is to a Steeler's fan.

But just a small minority of Muslims are responsible for these acts of violence, right?

Wrong! From the Calgary Sun.

On Feb. 13, the CBC published and aired the results of an Environics poll, which on their website was billed as "Glad to be Canadian, Muslims say." Apparently "more than 80% of Canada's roughly 700,000 Muslims are broadly satisfied with their lives here."

Waaaay down in the online CBC story about this poll is the news that when "asked about the arrests last summer of the 18 Muslim men and boys who were allegedly plotting terrorist attacks in southern Ontario, 73% of Muslim respondents said these attacks were not at all justified." That portion of the poll ended there. No more details. Why? The Environics website made no mention about this portion of the poll either.

However, on CBC's The National television program on the same day, this part of the poll was fleshed-out and the results are alarming.

Fully 12% of Muslim Canadians polled by Environics said the alleged terrorist plot -- that included kidnapping and beheading the prime minister and blowing up Parliament and the CBC -- was justified.

Predictably, the CBC managed to find a talking head -- in this case York University sociology professor Haideh Moghissi -- who dismissed this disturbing revelation.

"It's really negligible that 12 percent feel that the attacks would be justified," said Moghissi. "I don't think it even warrants attention."

Yep, negligible. Let’s see. 12% of 700,000 Muslims in Canada, that equals…..Holy Pray Rugs, Batman!

"84,000 Canadian Muslims think it's justifiable to behead our democratically elected prime minister and blow up the very symbol and centre of our democracy!"

That’s close to 1 in 10, folks. Canada, you’re negligible problem is a BIG problem!

Storm Track Disinformation: The Myth of Muslim Support for Terror

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less."
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master—that's all."

—Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass

The leftist Kenneth Balien writing in the Christian Science Monitor has made those words no truer than Humpty Dumpty’s. For it’s the twisting of words that he was so adept at.

Those who think that Muslim countries and pro-terrorist attitudes go hand-in-hand might be shocked by new polling research: Americans are more approving of terrorist attacks against civilians than any major Muslim country except for Nigeria.

How does he come to that conclusion? By twisting words to his advantage.

The survey, conducted in December 2006 by the University of Maryland's prestigious Program on International Public Attitudes, shows that only 46 percent of Americans think that "bombing and other attacks intentionally aimed at civilians" are "never justified," while 24 percent believe these attacks are "often or sometimes justified."

Contrast those numbers with 2006 polling results from the world's most-populous Muslim countries - Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nigeria. Terror Free Tomorrow, the organization I lead, found that 74 percent of respondents in Indonesia agreed that terrorist attacks are "never justified"; in Pakistan, that figure was 86 percent; in Bangladesh, 81 percent.

Notice the clever way the survey equates the civilian casualties as a result of a war to the deliberate killing of civilians by terrorists. This underhanded attempt at equating the targeting of civilians by terrorists with the necessary implementation of destroying the ideological support of the enemy nation is nothing short of blatant lying.

But of course, the far Left always sees a free democratic nation trying to defend itself and others as terrorism. The leopard’s spots never change.

Public opinion surveys in the United States and Europe show that nearly half of Westerners associate Islam with violence and Muslims with terrorists. Given the many radicals who commit violence in the name of Islam around the world, that's an understandable polling result. But these stereotypes, affirmed by simplistic media coverage and many radicals themselves, are not supported by the facts - and they are detrimental to the war on terror.

Oh really, lets look at the facts, Mr. Balien. From the Religion of Peace.

This list, of over 6,000 terrorist attacks committed by Muslims since 9/11/01 (a rate of about three or four a day), is incomplete because only a small percentage of attacks were picked up by international news sources, even those involving multiple loss of life. These are not incidents involving nominal Muslims killing for money or personal pride. We include attacks committed by Muslims out of religious duty - as interpreted by the perpetrator - that can be reasonably determined.

As it turns out, the “simplistic media coverage’ seems to have failed to cover all the attacks.

In truth, the common enemy is violence and terrorism, not Muslims any more than Christians or Jews. Whether recruits to violent causes join gangs in Los Angeles or terrorist cells in Lahore, the enemy is the violence they exalt.

And here we go again. Show us the record, Mr. Balien of Christians and Jews who are committing these common acts of violence around the world today.

The apologists and appeasers of Islamism never sleep.

Storm Track Disinformation: What Passes for Scholarship in the Muslim World

I don’t know which is more abhorrent – and frightening - the supposed Iranian scholar who is spewing this garbage or the students copying down his every word.

Winds of War: The Islamist Threat and Their Useful Idiots In a Nutshell

Want to understand the war that we are in whether we like it or not? Then these three books should be on the top of your reading list.

From Denenberg’s Commentary in the Bulletin.

This trilogy may be the most important reading of recent decades. It will convince any reasonable mind that our lives are at stake and so is our civilization.

Of course, those who believe that war is an elective even if you are under attack, and believe that you can say "I'm not participating" and the war will go away, will not be convinced. Furthermore, those who believe in the approach of current French government, "negotiate, appease, retreat, and surrender," will also not be convinced. Finally, those who think we should conduct wars by opinion polling and then micromanage wars in an attempt to run, cut and capitulate will also not be convinced.

The three books are Mark Steyn, America Alone: The End Of The World As We Know It (2006), Melanie Phillips, Londonistan (2005), and Bruce Bawer, While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam Is Destroying The West From Within (2006).

The books pretty much demonstrate Europe is already gone, and has committed cultural suicide while surrendering to radical Islam. The United States may not be far behind unless we change our approach. The three books describe the problem and offer solutions. All three should have received nothing but readers and prizes, but a funny thing happened to Bawer. It was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award from a prestigious book group, but some involved in the process accused Bawer of being a racist, apparently because he offered criticism of radical Islam.

There’s that damn idiocy again! Islam is NOT a race!! Why doesn’t someone grab the scruff of the neck of anyone who says such dribble and shake some sense into them? Where the hell are the senior editors at newspapers sworn to uphold journalistic integrity? Where the hell are the politically correct imbeciles who should run to the defense of real racist remarks and say such nonsense cheapens their fight against bigotry and prejudice? Where are the ethnic minorities themselves who are affronted by such sloppy thinking and racial equivalency?

One board member of the Circle, Eliot Weinberg, said the book was "racism as criticism." The President of the Circle said, "It's hyperventilated rhetoric slips from actual critique into Islamophobia." As far as I can tell such critics themselves did not speak to substance, but spoke only in their own hyperventilated and irrational rhetoric by condemning the book in hollow generalities, ignoring the most threatening facts and realities of our time.

How true. But just like a liberal mind – feel, don’t think.

Bawer had the perfect response: "As I and many others have pointed out a few million times, radical Islam is not a race...But it's easy - and in some circles highly effective - to fling the 'R' word instead of trying to respond to irrefutable facts and arguments." He continues, "One of the most disgraceful developments of our time is that many Western authors and intellectuals who pride themselves on being liberals have effectively aligned themselves with an outrageously illiberal movement that rejects equal rights for women, that believes gays and Jews should be executed, that supports the cold-blooded murder of one's own children in the name of honor, etc., etc. These authors and intellectuals respond to every criticism of that chilling fundamentalist code - however cogent and correct the criticism may be - by hurling the 'R' word. I will not be cowed by such dangerous, duplicitous rhetoric. Civilized, tolerant, pluralistic values are at stake - values that affect freedom loving individuals of all races."


Then Bawer exposes his critics for the hypocritical, left-wing loonies and phonies they are: "Some people think it is terrific for writers to expose the offenses and perils of religious fundamentalism - just as long as it’s Christian fundamentalism."

Ron Dreher, who has written a book critical of Christian fundamentalist, writes that this is the standard approach of the left - to yell bigotry at any ideas they don't want to confront, or perhaps can't logically respond to.

See my comment above about liberals who feel and don’t think.

Because the left views criticism of radical Islam as bigotry, it has failed to rationally respond to this existential threat to our civilization. For that reason, Europe has virtually surrendered its civilization to the on-rushing Islamic fundamentalists and the demands of Islam.

Dreher makes another point deadly to the critics of Bawer: "It's hard to avoid the conclusion that this sort of liberal hates political conservatives and orthodox Christians more than he loves his own liberty."

Say that again? Are you listening liberals?

“…this sort of liberal hates political conservatives and orthodox Christians more than he loves his own liberty."

‘nuff said.

Winds of War: West Point Says, “Know They Enemy” – But Do They?

NewsMax did a recent story on what was being taught at West Point. Jarret Brachman, the director of research at the United States Military Academy's Combating Terrorism Center, recently told a class of West Point cadets to “know thy enemy”.

The article goes on discussing that enemy as terrorism – the first mistake – but what would you expect from the Academy's Combating Terrorism Center. Brachman, after a while did come up with a money quote. Unfortunately he doesn’t know the ramifications or meaning of it.

When they are not teaching cadets, the small group of academics at the Combating Terrorism Center, known as the CTC, publish analytical papers on al-Qaida and other terror networks that have landed on newspaper front pages and the desks of U.S. policy makers. The group's central tenet is as old as war itself: Know your enemy.

"We have not been focused on the power of ideas, or been as sensitive to the power of ideas as much as they have," said Brachman, a former CIA analyst.

Let’s look at that quote again.

"We have not been focused on the power of ideas, or been as sensitive to the power of ideas as much as they have.”

That’s the crux of the problem. Ideas or otherwise known as an ideology.

Our leaders and analysts, whoever and wherever they may be, have not been able to bring themselves to identify the ideology that we face as civilized world. Oh, they’ve skirted around the issue with terms like Islamo-fascists or Islamists, but even then, they are unable to truly identify the tactics used by the Islamic ideologues to reach their goal of Islamatizing the world. They refuse to accept the fact that Islam as a socio-political system and not just a religion (similar to the Holy Roman Empire’s socio-political system of the Middle Ages) uses a non-violent weapon of choice that has the same objective of the terrorists.

That weapon of choice is Shariah law and the multiple comparably non-violent jihads the Islamist ideology uses to implement Sharaih law in the non-Muslim and Muslim worlds.

True, the teaching of the non-violent jihads like media, institutional, cultural, litigation, demographic, and economic jihads has little place in a military academy. But if ideas of the enemy are to be discussed, these jihads must be addressed if one is to truly “Know Thy Enemy”.

Winds of War: The Lighter Side of Jihad

First, in the news: Iraq Terror Groups Offer Non-Binding Ceasefire.

(2007-02-17) — A coalition of major terror groups operating in Iraq today announced a symbolic, non-binding ceasefire in response to House Democrats’ passage of a non-binding resolution rejecting President George Bush’s troop surge plan.

Al Qaeda in Iraq, the Shiite Mahdi army and representatives of a Sunni car-bomb cartel said they would continue to fully fund martyrdom operations, with help from their friends in Iran, Syria and elsewhere. An unnamed spokesman for the terror coalition said, “The non-binding ceasefire serves as a kind of imaginary turning point in the mythical pursuit of peace among those who have pledged their lives to the destruction of the U.S., Christianity, Judaism and Western civilization in general.” U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, said the terrorists’ symbolic initiative “confirms that Democrats are on the right track with their strategy to end the war in Iraq through non-binding means.”

Meanwhile, the White House released a conciliatory statement from President George Bush in the wake of the Democrat-sponsored anti-surge resolution. “Our friends in Congress continue to display the rich diversity of patriotism,” the president said. “Their actions demonstrate to all Americans that you, in fact, can support the troops while opposing the war, as long as you’re not too specific about whose troops you support.”

Mr. Bush also said the House vote “shows that it’s possible to pass a resolution without being overly resolute.”

Meanwhile: The terror alert has been raised in Europe.

Subject: European Security Levels

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666.

Also, the French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France 's white flag factory, effectively paralysing the country's military capability.

It's not only the English and French that are on a heightened level of alert. Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."

The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbour" and "Lose."

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual, and the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Smile – things WILL get better.

Storm Track Infiltration: The Muslim Manifesto

The latest institutional jihad of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), who has issued new guidelines for the treatment of Islamic children in state schools, is not the first blatant attempt at dimmifying Britain.

The British, part of the European Union, should have paid heed in 1990 when “The Muslim Manifesto: A Strategy for Survival” was promulgated to create the Council of British Muslims to act as “a Muslim parliament”.
You can see the entire manifesto here. Here are some excerpts.

Britain’s Muslim Manifesto made it clear that “Political and cultural subservience goes against their grain” because “at its inception Islam created a political platform from which Muslims were to launch themselves on a global role as founders of great states, empires and a world civilization and culture.”

According to the UK’s Muslim Manifesto, “The fact is that a Muslim woman cannot be a western woman.” The problem for Muslims in Great Britain was that “There are laws on the British Statute Book that are in direct conflict with the laws of Allah.”

“We are Muslims first and last.”

“Jihad is a basic requirement of Islam and living in Britain or having British nationality by birth or naturalization does not absolve the Muslim from his or her duty to participate in jihad: this participation can be active service in armed struggle abroad and/or the provision of material and moral support to those engaged in such struggle anywhere in the world.”

“Islam is our guide in all situations.”

The power of this manifesto became clear when on July 7, 2005, born-and-bred Muslim British citizens killed their own British neighbors in London’s subways and buses.

Assimilation, according to the Manifesto, wasn’t even an option. Why need it be? By the early 1990s, there were already about 1,000 mosques in Great Britain, many of them former Anglican churches that had been abandoned and sold to Muslims. As is the case of France today, the Manifesto recommended that “The Muslim community may have to define ‘no go’ areas where the exercise of ‘freedom of speech’ against Islam will not be tolerated.”

Remember, this manifesto was written back in 1990. Did they plan their work? Yes. Are they working their plan? Ditto.

The next time you want to mock the “fundamentalist” Christians, famed for their patriotism, think again.

The next time you shrug when you hear your local school system has banned the playing or singing of Christmas carols, think again.

The next time you are inclined to say or think unkind things about American or Israeli Jews, think again.

The next time your neighborhood, community or city yields to some new Islamic demand to conform to their “religious” rules, think again.

The next time you read demands that something not be published or aired in America because it offends Muslim sensibilities, think again.

The next time anyone tells you that Islam preaches tolerance or peace, think again.

This is how nations and ultimately western civilization will quietly pass in a whimper of voluntary dhimmitude and not in a bang of resistance.

Storm Track Appeasement: Google Joins the Media Jihad

What’s with Google? Will we be seeing a turban on the ‘Os’ of the Google logo soon or perhaps Google written in Arabic? Or perhaps there’s more to Google’s blatant attempts at censorship than we think. Hat tip to the 910 Group.

In recent weeks, YouTube has deleted many videos that are critical of terrorism and violence from Islamists, including videos that just quote from the Koran and expose the political ideology within the Islamic religion.

DhmmiWatch has outed this recent example of Google censorship and said “A
ll the video does is quote from the Qur'an, but apparently that alone was too much; while Gisburne also posted anti-Christian videos, it is reportedly the video concerning Islam that got him banned.”

At YouTube, You can say pretty much whatever you want, as long as it's not about Islam. If that's not true, YouTube user Nick Gisburne begs to differ after his account – his entire account – was deleted for its "inappropriate content."

What exactly did he say? Not much at all, in fact. He let the Koran speak for itself.

Gisburne is a self-described atheist with, at least from the one video, a deep questioning of Muslim claims about the Koran. To express his doubts about Islam being a religion of peace, Gisburne created a 10-minute video, entitled "Islamic Teachings" that was nothing but violent quotations taken from the Koran instructing followers to kill nonbelievers and speed their way to Hell where Allah will torture them forever.

It would seem quoting the holy book in a sort of testament against itself was over the line for someone working at Google-owned YouTube. Not only was the video deleted without any type of warning to the uploader, but the uploader's account was also deleted with only the explanation (or accusation) of submitting inappropriate content, a category usually reserved for nudity or video violence.

Over at Xooglers, a blog written by ex-Google employees, Ron Garret says this doesn't reflect well on Google.

This really bothers me for four reasons. First, to deem quotations from a holy text to be "inappropriate content" is outrageous on its face. Second, Gisburne was given no warning. Third, YouTube didn't just delete the video in question, they deleted Gisburne's entire account. And fourth, this makes a mockery of Google's "don't be evil" slogan. There can be no possible reason for this action other than caving to intimidation, and sanctimonious cowardice in the face of oppression is a particularly pernicious breed of evil.

It seems Google has joined the ranks of the Islamists and are waging a media jihad on their behalf.

Is that correct Google?

Storm Track Intimidation: CAIR Continues Its Litigation Jihad

The group that calls itself a ‘civil rights’ organization has proven time and time again to be the litigation arm of the Islamists waging the many jihads on the non-Muslim world.

CAIR’s latest attempt at protecting our civil rights are charges against a California middle school teacher, Randy Ingram, who had the courage to state to his sixth grade class the obvious - that Iran has sworn to destroy the state of Israel.

Given Iranian president Ahmadinejad's constant threatening of Israel with destruction, Mr. Ingram's statement would seem to be non-controversial. Unfortunately in California where teacher's unions are pushing for a Marxist comic book to be used as part of history curriculua such truth telling might well be rewarded in the form of disciplinary action. A single student in Ingram's class allegedly reported some version of the instructor's story back to his parents who then, in a template repeated hundreds of times a year by Islamists nationwide, called in the Muslim thought police.

And who’s the lead jihadist in this particular drama?

Taking the lead here is Kamal Abu-Shamsieh, the director of Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno. What the Bee does not inform its readers is that Shamsieh is a professional Islamist.

Kamal Abu-Shamsieh is a former Palestinian journalist and a documentary film maker. He is currently the national community relations director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) based in Los Angeles. He provides the Muslim & ethnic media outlets with weekly updates and news about the Muslim community. Mr. Shamsieh is both a radical Muslim and an Israel hater who in a piece authored for the far-left pro-Fresno Alliance newsletter, accused the Jewish state of war crimes, "represented a new phase of Israel's war crimes," while decrying the alleged, "apartheid policies of Israel."

Typical of the Islamist mindset, Shamsieh believes in limiting the line of inquiry when it strays to the type of topic that naturally might inconvenient questions.

"I don't believe schools are a place to debate political views on international affairs or any other affairs that are not related to teaching our children."

Oh really? Especially if the political debate shows Islam in a bad light. Right Mr. Shamsieh? And if I remember correct, current affairs IS a valid topic to teach children in school. But today’s schools are more interested in teaching multicultural values and political correctness than world history and current events.

Keep ‘em young and dumb is the plan and lead them down the road to being good little dhimmis swallowing the propaganda of the Islamists so visible today in our public school system.

As is usually the case in such matters, the Saudi Wahhabist funded Council on American Islamic Relations is now also pushing this hoax via its newsletter. These attempts are happening all over the United States and are part of the Islamist agenda to suppress freedom of expression. Such efforts constitute evidence of the Islamists disregard for Constitutionally enumerated rights and offer the briefest of glimpses as to what the radical fundamentalists mean when they push for Shar'ia. For the record think of MPAC as a slicker, more PR savvy CAIR, careful to position themselves as moderate but in reality no different.

We must identify and expose these attempts at litigation and cultural jihad when we find them. For Islamists jihad is the way – Shariah law is the weapon of choice in subduing the non-Muslims and moderate Muslim societies.

Storm Track Infiltration: Institutional Jihad -'Halal-Only' School Lunches

The infiltration and domination of non-Muslim society continues with another example of Institutional Jihad.

Furious parents staged protests outside a school over its decision to serve up only halal meat at lunchtimes. Staff were forced to call the police after one father strode into the school in North London to challenge the new meals policy. Kingsgate Primary in West Hampstead is among growing numbers of schools with high Muslim populations to use halal-only meat in cooking. But the menus, which will feature only meat that has been slaughtered in the halal way with a single cut to the throat, have not always been well received.

At Kingsgate, parents carrying placards congregated at the school gates to demand a reversal of the policy, claiming their children would be denied a choice.

Choice? There’s no stinkin’ choice in Islam. Submit or die.

But the protests triggered claims of racism from parents of Muslim children, who make up three quarters of the school population.

When is this stupidity going to stop! MUSLIMS ARE NOT A RACE!!! When will our media, political leaders, institutions and organizations give a hearty ‘horse laugh’ and humiliate the fools who utter such nonsense?

Yesterday headmistress Liz Hayward was refusing to back down, insisting that a majority of parents had backed the move to halal-only menus in a comprehensive survey of families. But protesting parents accused her of forcing their children to conform to "someone else's culture".

Can you believe the bold-faced arrogance! So non-Muslims should conform to their culture? Why is this not a surprise? It’s the plan of the Islamists all along and our dhimmi society is playing right into their hands. Where do these people get this idea from? Oh, I forgot – multiculturalism – but only their culture counts.

However one Muslim parent, Solveig Francis, accused the protesters of "naked racism", adding: "It's got nothing to do with choice.”When you listen to what they say about English culture being imposed upon and so on, it really does give it away. "They talk about keeping up English values - but the most important value we have is democracy. It's about time that was upheld."

Democracy fails when a minority works against the betterment of the majority. And that’s what those Muslim parents want to do. And the English values Britain holds are the same in any democratic western nation - the Judeo-Christian values. And it’s about time we start defending them.

Mother Jacqueline Gomm said: "I sent my kids to this school because I don't want them to be affected by religion.”We can't force our culture on someone else because that's not right so we shouldn't have someone else's culture forced on us. "The little culture that we have is being lost. I don't know any other country that would do the same." She added: "I totally deny being guilty of racism.”We allow people to come into this country and we end up being in a minority. "We accommodate other cultures at the expense of ours."

I couldn’t say it any better. And these kinds of antic by Shariah loving Muslims will turn on them and bode an ill wind for both them and Europe itself. For there is a more dangerous element developing here.

Staff at Kingsgate were forced to take phones off the hook after abusive callers claimed to be from the British National Party…………"But the sad thing is many people will turn to them because they feel there is no other choice."

Take your pick Europe – Islmo-fascism or neo-fascism. Either way, you lose.

Storm Track Infiltration: Degree Granting Jihad U Right Here In The USA

FrontPage Magazine has an excellent article on the Al-Maghrib Institute and it’s goal of teaching Wahhabi extremism and Muslim Brotherhood activism into mosques and Muslim student groups throughout North America in at least thirteen cities. Hat tip to Michael.

The article is rather long but here are the most important highlights.

The staple of Al-Maghrib's course offerings are the double weekend seminars held at their permanent sites. In addition, the Al-Maghrib instructors are in high demand as motivational speakers at Muslim organization events all over the world. The Institute is also active amongst the 150 chapters of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) located at universities all over the US and Canada.

Did you catch that name? The Muslim Student Association. That Muslim student organization keeps coming up when attempts by Islamists are made to infiltration the colleges and curriculums of America. The MSA is one of the front groups operated by the international Muslim Brotherhood. The MSA is tasked with advancing the institutional jihad tactic of the Islamists. Al-Maghrib's Wahhabi-influenced extremism, rabid anti-Semitism and Holocaust denials, and militaristic preaching of jihad even have other Muslims expressing concern about their radicalizing preaching and programs.

But the Muslim Brotherhood influence is not the only troubling aspect to Al-Maghrib’s programs and message. In fact, all six of Al-Maghrib’s instructors have degrees from Saudi institutions controlled by the extremist Wahhabi sect.

Al-Maghrib's educational courses are accredited by the American Open University, which in turn is accredited by Al-Ahzar University in Cairo – the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the oldest and largest radical Islamic organization in the world. The courses offered by Al-Mahgrib count only as course credit for the AOU's Bachelors in Islamic Studies degree, the only English language program offered by AOU.

How nice - an accredited degree in Jihadism.

A review of the course summary for the Islamic Studies degree program shows that the reading is dominated by Muslim Brotherhood and Wahhabi theologians and theorists. In particular, the AOU program requires reading of Sayyid Qutb's, In the Shade of the Quran, the text for AOU's 113 Analytic Tafseer I course. Qutb, the leading Muslim Brotherhood thinker executed by Nasser in the 1960s after an assassination attempt, has been described as "Bin Laden's Brain" due to the extensive influence Qutb has had in justifying terrorism and jihad and laying down the theoretical principles that al-Qaeda was built upon.

Another Muslim Brotherhood theorist prominent in the curriculum is Sayyid Sabiq, who wrote his book, Fiqh-us-Sunnah, at the request of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna. The two volumes of Sabiq's work are the sole text for AOU's 141 Fiqh of Worship I course. In the majority of AOU's required reading for their Islamic Studies program, which Al-Maghrib offers course credit for, members of the Muslim Brotherhood and those influenced and approved by the Brotherhood figure prominently.

Now get this.

Bilal Phillips is another name that appears repeatedly on AOU's and Al-Maghrib's reading lists. Phillips has recently gained notoriety as one of the radical preachers secretly videotaped as part of the Undercover Mosque investigative program aired last month on England's Channel 4.

After the Undercover Mosque program aired, it was severely attacked by Al-Maghrib instructor Yasir Qadhi, who launched into a 15 minute tirade defending the extremist speakers secretly videotaped by Channel 4 at the beginning of his regular Islami Q&A program on the Islam Channel satellite network. After Qadhi's video defense aired, Bilal Phillips himself followed his friend's lead and also aired a defense on YouTube.

But the concern over Al-Maghrib's teachings extend much further than their Muslim Brotherhood and Wahhabi influences. Anti-Semitic diatribes and Holocaust denials are regular themes preached by Al-Maghrib's instructors. Institute founder Muhammad Alshareef expressed his thoughts on Muslim-Jewish relations in an article he published entitled, "Why the Jews are Cursed" (curiously, this article is not available on Al-Maghrib's website). As noted by the Militant Islam Monitor , in Alshareef's article he expounds on the anti-Semitic canard that the international media is owned and controlled by Jews, and thus, biased against Muslims:

When I was in high school, studying in journalism class, our teacher had placed on the wall a statement that I spent many days contemplating. It simply said, "Freedom of the press (speech) belongs to those that own the press!" Who owns the press? Well, you can believe me when I say that it is not the god fearing beloved of Allah.

The teaching of aggressive militaristic jihad is also a common theme in Al-Maghrib's courses.

One seminar taught by Muhammad Alshareef is his review of the jihadist exploits and military campaigns of the first four "rightly guided" caliphs, Conquest: History of the Khulafaa'. The militaristic themes for this course are evident in the one minute video trailer for the seminar. The triumphalist vision of Islam as the inevitable sole world power and the justification of militaristic conquests under the banner of jihad are also repeated in the Al-Maghrib course, Islam Invulnerable: The Making of the Modern Muslim World.

The Al-Maghrib Institute is an out and out and visible threat to the security of the US and should be dealt with accordingly.

In the span of just a few short years, the Al-Maghrib Institute has quickly established itself as one of the premiere Islamic instructional programs in North America, as attested to by its 13 mosque-based affiliates and their regular appearances at Muslim Student Association events. Audio and video lecture series, an impressive Internet presence and regular satellite television programs by Al-Maghrib faculty extend their influence even further. Furthermore, the Institute's instructors are in high demand as event speakers for Islamic organizations all over the world.

Al-Maghrib's rapid rise should cause concern, however, as its Wahhabi and Muslim Brotherhood-inspired messages of religious extremism, racial bigotry and advocacy of jihad and militancy are being spread like cancer in Muslim communities throughout the US and Canada. And this ideological cancer spread by the Al-Maghrib Institute potentially threatens Muslims and non-Muslims alike as its popularity and radicalism continues to increase.

Wake up drive by main stream media. Here’s a conspiracy that beats out anything Anna Nicole Smith's train wreck of a life can bring ya’.

Winds of War: It’s Not So Much What We’re Fighting Against as What We Are Fighting For

"A love for tradition has never weakened a nation; indeed it has strengthened nations in their hour of peril." - Sir Winston Churchill

Posting to my blog every day for the last 10 months has taught me a lot about the challenges and threats we face as a society and our shared culture. The journey I’ve taken has helped me understand what those challenges and threats are and I've attempted to frame them in a theme – a gathering storm - that would make sense to anyone who reads it.

As my understanding has matured reading hundreds of news items and blog postings a week I’ve come to the conclusion that if we are to win this threat of Islamism to our freedom loving culture, we have to come up with simple terms that explain to the majority of simple people who just don’t ‘get it’. And I’m not talking just about the far Left that hates anything and everything about America. I’m talking about the common everyday person who doesn’t understand the concept of Islamism, Islamists, Islamo-fascists, the confusing arguments about what Islam is and what it isn’t coming from all sides of the debate, and who can’t seem to fathom the deliberate concealment of the Islamist threat by the main stream media at worst or through its self-censorship at best.

After 9-11, there is one threat that every freedom loving person, non-Muslim and Muslim alike, on this planet understands and even the main stream media could not deny.


All other words and concepts are too complex, confusing, even too deep for the common everyday person to understand and who we need to recruit to the fight. Jihadism is what people fear. Jihadism is understood to be the enemy. Jihadism is what needs to be defeated. One can begin any discussion from couch potatoes to intellectuals and start from an agreement of the common enemy – jihadists or commonly called terrorists.

So how does one proceed from there convincing the unaware that violet or militant Jihad or terrorism, who they agree is the enemy, is but one small part of a greater strategy? The unaware and misinformed do understand the general goal of the Jihadists. It’s no secret. The Jihadists have told us time and time again and have made it quite clear in the media, demonstrations and in their mosques. They wish to bring about a world dominated by Islam and ruled by Shariah law.

Now, Shariah law is not well known by the common person in the free world. I didn’t know about it before I started my blog. But what the unaware do know is that the Jihadist objective is to impose whatever Islamic laws they have on the non-Muslim and moderate Muslim societies. Rules and laws that just didn’t pass the smell test to freedom loving people. The Mohammed cartoon controversy is one very good example. Unless you are a raving multiculturalist whose mind has been warped by political correctness, you understand that the riots and protests against the cartoons were an attempt at stifling our cherished right to free speech.

That understanding was unavoidable.

An understanding of these attempts at controlling our society and social discourse can be used as a tool to explain to the unaware just what the threat is and that it should be resisted. Controlling our society and making it submit to the will of the Jihadists IS the goal of our enemy and violent or militant Jihad is but one tactic used by the Jihadist to achieve that goal. And a small one at that - but most visible with clear casualties to life and limb.

The goal of imposing peacefully or violently the rule of Shariah law upon the world.

The violent imposition is easy to see – the use of terrorism or Militant Jihad and the casualties inflicted by it. The non-violent Jihadist means of imposing Shariah law through intimidation, infiltration and disinformation in a society inflict a different sort of casualty - one to our traditions, cherished values and way of life. These types of Jihads are:

· Cultural jihad

· Economic jihad

· Demographic jihad

· Litigation jihad

· Institutional jihad

· Financial jihad

· Media jihad.

· Thugery jihad

· Criminal jihad

All of which has the objective of imposing, one way or another, Shariah law on a society. I would add one more reflecting on Keith Ellison and Barack Obama - the potential threat of Political Jihad.

The actions of the Jihadists, Islamists, Islamo-fascists or whatever you want to call them can be identified under the categories above and the threat to our cherished traditions - the result of hundreds of years of sacrifice – should be clear to the common everyday person. By tagging the activities of the Islamists using those categories we have some logical ground to stand on – one that the average person can understand and support the struggle against all the different kinds of Jihadism before us.

We must remember that what we are fighting for is just as important as what we are fighting against. Fighting against terrorism is an easy thing to understand. Any fool can see that. Identifying threats to our hard earned and invaluable traditions takes an understanding that they are under attack by an insidious process well established by our enemy and well versed in using it.

Storm Track Infiltration: Muslim Student Associations Gradually Introduce Shria Law

The Institutional jihad continues and the poor little dhimmis in the non-Muslim world haven’t a clue as to what happening to them, their institutions and their society. All you need is to have an Islamic student association on your campus and you let the camel’s nose of Sharia law into the tent.

Here’s another example of the jihads in their bag of stealth tactics. From the Islamic Threat blog.

All you need is a Muslim Student association on your campus and the demands for a change in 'non-Islamic' curriculum starts to appear. This is a lesson that a Canadian university has learned. Muslim Student Associations are implanted in campuses and their aim is to radicalize Muslim students who do not understand Sharia. The larger goal being making Sharia a part of everyday life in the western world. If you look at it in any other way then you are very mistaken.

This from The Gazette, a student campus newspaper in Canada.

A recent decision by Western’s visual arts department has left some Muslim students torn between their love for drawing and painting and their devotion to Islam. After making accommodations for students for several years, the visual arts department added a note to the bottom of nine course descriptions effective Sept. 1, 2005, indicating “some sessions may involve drawing from the nude (female or male) as a required component of the course.” Though the note was added a year and a half ago, some students are just starting to feel its effects and voice their concerns.

And what are the concerns?

One fourth-year Muslim student said until last year, she and some other students were allowed to negotiate alternatives with their professors, including drawing action figures and break-dancers. Not wanting to cause a fuss, she drew a female nude model in her first-year introductory course, but felt uncomfortable and regretted doing it afterwards. She spoke to Western’s Muslim chaplain, Munir El-Kassem, who advised she should not draw nudes as it isn’t permitted by Islam. ……………… El-Kassem said he was unaware of the policy change and would be prepared to formally challenge it. Hassan Ahmad, president of the Muslim Students’ Association, said he and the MSA would like to follow up the matter so Muslim students won’t have to deal with it in the future.

“The university shouldn’t make this black and white,” Ahmad said. “They should accept that they have a variety of people from a variety of different backgrounds. It’s not fair to just say, ‘this is how The West does things.’ You have to be tolerant of others’ traditions, because we have important traditions too.”

Now wait a minute. The university should reduce the value of their art degree (which features classes which can't be passed unless students complete nude drawings) for certain students to accommodate religion? Isn’t that one of the reasons Islamic culture is in such decline? The university degrees in Islamic nations focus primarily on teaching religion than on teaching facts or even preparing them for the 21st century employment challenges.

And now Canada has to give students a less that stellar education to accommodate – or more to the point – implement Sharia law?

This is not multicultural accommodation. What we have here is one of the non-violent forms of jihad – in this case institutional jihad - working towards the establishment of Shariah law in non-Muslim lands and they're unaware of their willing decent into dhimmitude.

I’m going to continue to drive this concept home and prove that violent jihad, otherwise known as terrorism or the misnamed ‘war on terror’, is but one piece of a comprehensive strategy to install the objective of the terrorists – Sharia law - using the non-violent jihads of media, institution, demographic, cultural, economic, litigation, criminal and thuggery jihad.
