White House, New York Times: Don’t Fight Jihad, It Will Only Provoke More Jihad

Pages: 1 2

See, I am being accused every day now of being complicit in mass murder and even of being a murderer myself. Yet there is no amount of this defamation that I could be subjected to that would ever make me become a murderer myself. There is no amount of lies and abuse they could throw at me that would ever make me turn to violent “extremism” myself. And I think this is true of most people — at least most who are sane. Yet McDonough and Shane seem to take it for granted that false accusations against Muslims will make them kill, and that instead of telling the Muslims in question to get hold of themselves and be reasonable, this means we have to tiptoe around them and avoid saying anything that even appears to be a false accusation — and we even have to stop telling truths, for fear they will fuel “extremism.” After all, the U.S. government and the media are engaged in a massive operation of denial of the obvious fact that Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism. And why? Because they are afraid of fueling “extremism” by appearing to associate Islam with terrorism. And so Islamic jihadists can associate Islam with terrorism all day, but we are not allowed to notice.

This is madness.

Instead, he said, Muslim Americans should be treated as a crucial ally of the government in combating extremism….

Fine. Such as who? Hamas-linked CAIR, with its “Don’t Talk to the FBI” poster? MPAC, with its hollow and deceptive condemnations of terror? Exactly which Muslim group in America has actually shown itself to be a “crucial ally of the government in combating extremism”? Can McDonough answer that? Can Shane?

Since the Fort Hood attacks, there have been a number of foiled plots by radicalized Muslims in the United States, as well as by extreme right-wing and white supremacist ideologues.

Far more of the former than of the latter, but Scott Shane will not tell you that.

Conservative critics of the Obama administration, including Representative Peter T. King, Republican of New York, have accused it of political correctness in avoiding applying the “Islamic” label to plots and attacks by Muslims. Mr. King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has held a series of hearings focusing exclusively on the threat from Muslim extremists, drawing fire from Muslim groups. In March, on the eve of Mr. King’s first hearing, Mr. McDonough spoke at a Virginia Islamic center to reassure Muslim Americans that the government would fight extremism without practicing “guilt by association.”…

No reassurance was offered to non-Muslim Americans that the government would fight extremism by doing anything effective to call Muslim groups in the U.S. to account for their deceptive and empty support for anti-terror efforts.

A National Security Council expert on extremism who helped devise the new strategy, Quintan Wiktorowicz, said the administration was aware of “inaccurate training” on Islam for law enforcement officers. He said the administration would compile “gold standard” materials to be posted on the Web for officials to draw upon.

A January study by a liberal research group found a pattern of misleading and inflammatory training about Islam across the country, and a 2009 F.B.I. training document obtained recently by the American Civil Liberties Union gave a provocative account of Islam. That F.B.I. PowerPoint presentation was used for classes for law enforcement personnel at the bureau’s academy in Virginia, but it is no longer in use, according to the bureau.

The F.B.I. document recommended two books by Robert Spencer, an anti-Muslim blogger and author whose work was repeatedly cited in the online manifesto of Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian accused of killing at least 76 people last month. Mr. Spencer, who operates the Web site Jihad Watch, has said he opposes violence and condemns Mr. Breivik’s actions.

Yep. But Scott Shane thinks it pertinent to drag Breivik into this piece anyway, since he can’t find anything actually “misleading and inflammatory” in what I write. Breivik will have to serve. And he will. Now at last the media and its Islamic supremacist allies have someone other than Tim McVeigh to cite as evidence of “right-wing extremism.” And they will ride it for all it’s worth.

    May Jehovah God Bless and Keep You, Mr. Spencer–you, all your staff, and all courageous, Freedom-loving people (Wafa, Ayaan, Sina, etc) who daily risk their lives to inform the uninformed about the threat from the violent core teachings the Muhammedans follow (as commanded and practiced by Muhammed). KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, WE PRAY FOR YOU ALL, AND WE SUPPORT YOU!

      I am typically to running a blog and i really respect your content. The article has really peaks my interest. I'm going to bookmark your website and hold checking for new information.

  • tarleton

    The NYT is more symtomatic of the spiritual malaise and lack of cultural confidence that is infecting the West …it's probably due to affluence , mindless materialism , multi-cultural Leftist propaganda and general hedonism that is undermining the disciplin , work ethic , duty and manful determination that made the Western world great

    Is western civilisation petering out in an orgy of hedonism worthy of the age of Tiberious ?

  • tarleton

    Furthermore, the NYT is typical of the feminisation and spinelessness of the West ….the female concept of ''if we don't upset or annoy them , they will leave us alone ''

    What's painfully ironic is that these medieval islamic creeps are the deadly enemy of liberalism …kinda reminds me of those ecotwits who try to romanticise and befriend dangerous wild animals and then get eaten for their troubles

  • Elpi Npni

    New York Times is America's fifth legion publication and should be treated as such.
    It is colaborating with the enemy sitting in the White House. In soviet times it was aspiring to help the soviets against the USA and now it taking the side of another ideological enemy once more.
    Mr. Spencer, i admire your work and there is not enough truth to describe this CANCER called Islam.
    Saying the truth will not cure us from it.
    We in the West have a CANCER of our own, the leftside of the West.
    we are terminally ILL.

  • StephenD

    Do not call them violent…or they will KILL you! How ridiculous, yet this is exactly what they are saying.
    I wouldn’t be too concerned Robert. There are enough clear thinking people still in this world that see what you see and understand the threat for what it is. We cannot be persuaded by fancy footwork on a keyboard to lull us into inaction. My hope is that we, as a nation, abandon the P.C. crap and clearly define what we stand for. Keep up the good work. You are not alone!

    Right, The Radicals say don't fight Jihad so they can take over America sooner! Thanks to Robert Spencer, we know we will get the facts straight here!!!! Sorry Leftists and Radials, WE are not taking this Crap Lying Down!

    The political loyalty of Muslims is to Islam, and Islam alone. Mohammed/Allah is a jealous god, he/they will tolerate no rival.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    If Congressman Peter King wasn’t so blinded by political correctness in his own right, he would accuse the Obama administration of treason and of being complicit in jihad, which it is, and then he would hold hearings to expose it.

    This country is so screwed because even the Republicans are complicit in jihad. Indeed, it is bipartisan.

    I repeat again…the 9/11 jihadist (not terrorist) attacks could never have ever happened if not for the presence of millions of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists with their thousands of mosques and madrassas already living here in the USA as a fifth column. If not for the presence of that fifth column of jihadists present in the USA today, there would be absolutely ZERO threat whatsoever of jihadist attacks in our homeland, and in fact we could close and shut down the TSA, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Intelligence Directorate, repeal the Patriot ACT, significantly trim the budgets of the FBI and CIA, and then use those savings to help pay down the debt.

    Indeed, never before has the country ever expended so much resources and at the same time forced the American people to make so many sacrifices just to accommodate one particular immigrant group, i.e., mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage. Can anyone explain what makes Muslim immigration so beneficial relative to other immigrant groups that our politicians would bend over backwards, double the size of the federal government just to continue accommodating them, and force Americans to sacrifice their heretofore constitutionally protected rights and freedoms? In fact, it is getting harder and harder all the time for me to believe that all of this unnecessary brain damage is not a freak accident of nature but is all by design.

    It's interesting to me that we have, in so many cases, become a nation of cowards, especially in the press. The soft underbelly shown to the enemy is quite deceptive. They know they can rely on these people to turn tail and run thinking that all Americans must be this way as well. However, what the jihadists do not realize is that this will mainly only happen in the big cities. Come to the rural areas and we'll eat your lunch for you. We don't read the NY Times because it's a newspaper full of surrender and doesn't believe in America although it takes the money from what we'll refer to as "sissies." Just like we don't watch MSNBC or CNN because they do not believe in America and are willing to surrender. Go get your latte and continue to believe that Islam isn't a threat to you. We know differently and are preparing while the enemy is at your gates and your will not to believe is going to be a death knell for you. The watchmen on the tower, like Mr. Spencer here, are telling you and telling you over and again and you simply refuse to believe them. This must be what 1936-39 Germany was like. Look at what happened there.

      good point.

  • aspacia

    Yes, Robert you have been wrongly libeled, and you should sue!

  • mrstarry76

    I am so glad we have informed people like Robert Spencer to tell us the truth. Whenever I read the leftist media defending radical Islam and blaming those who expose it, I am reminded of how evil can be rationalized and turned around; good is bad and bad is good. The biggest problem is that more and more people are buying it.

  • LindaRivera

    Ruthless media and elites spit on the graves of the innocent slain children by IMMEDIATELY and eagerly exploiting the murders of these innocent children for cheap political propaganda by attacking hero Robert Spencer and other heroes who write and speak to warn of the great dangers of Islam. It is evil.

    The elites seek to silence all those who warn – they seek to put to sleep an unsuspecting public. The elites brought in massive numbers of Muslim immigrants into Europe, UK and other countries. Exactly why would they do that when the Koran teaches that jihad is an obligation for every Muslim?

  • LindaRivera

    Robert Spencer is a HUGE Hero and famous for fighting for the safety, protection and FREEDOM of ALL Peoples and ALL religions and EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL UNDER THE LAW.

    Is this why anti-America, anti-Free World New York Times HATES Robert Spencer so much that they are deliberately inciting to hate and even bring about the murder of Free World hero, Robert Spencer?

    I hope Robert Spencer will sue to the max New York Times and other media who are ruthlessly exploiting the murders of children for cheap propaganda to demonize and hate incitement against Spencer.

    The New York Times and other media who are engaging in this sick, demonic character assassination of Spencer have a moral responsibility to provide Spencer with bodyguards 24/7. Bodyguards of Spencer's choosing. I would NOT trust New York Times choice of bodyguards.

  • LindaRivera

    ETERNAL SHAME on the New York Times and other guilty media who demonize Spencer and IGNORE the suffering, atrocities and mass murders of Blacks by the Muslim rebels in Libya-the TERRORIST rebels who are backed by the White House and NATO.



    blackstarnews: The York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, the BBC and other major news organizations have never followed up on The Wall Street Journal's June 21 article about ethnic cleansing of Black Libyans in Misurata by the "Brigade for the purging of slaves, Black Skin."

    That Brigade, of Libya's so-called rebels, backed by NATO and the White House, eliminated the Black population of Misurata and promised to do the same to Black Libyans once they seized control of the city of Tawergha, 25 miles away.

    Major news outlets are deliberately ignoring or downplaying the racialist-motivated atrocities against Black people being committed by the terroristic "rebels."

    On August 13, there will be a major demonstration and march in Harlem, starting at 10 AM at 110 Street and Malcolm X Boulevard to protest the U.S. involvement in NATO's war of aggression against Libya.

    Council on American-Islamic Relations: "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." – Omar Ahmad (CAIR co-founder).

    Addressing a youth session at the 1999 Islamic Association for Palestine's annual convention in Chicago, CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) founder Omar Ahmad praised suicide bombers who "kill themselves for Islam,"

    The media must explain to the public why they are condemning gentle, peace-loving innocent Robert Spencer and have never CONDEMNED our government for showing Muslim terrorist connected CAIR, security at the airport. It is very frightening that our government was extremely eager to show Muslim terrorist connected CAIR, our airport security.

    How can our nation survive?

    The Department of Homeland Security took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines.

    Robert Spencer is a man of courage and a great American.

  • Old Timer

    With the exception of those American voters who hate America and are out to destroy our country, all those Americans who cast their ballots for Obama and the Democrats are cowards afraid not only to confront the fact that Islamists are at war with America, but so afraid that they are quick to appease the Islamists, and to aid and abet them at every turn.

    I live in a very small town in Ohio, I have seen one family of Muslims move in.
    Now I am noticing more and more of them slowly and quietly coming in.
    Now I see them sitting in council meetings and school board meetings.
    We had a complaint about our school using the word G-D in our motto and the board had it removed under threat of law suits.
    The name of the complainant was never released.
    This has been in the motto for 80 years.
    This has been a very G-d fearing community since it was began, now our citizens are being directed by people taking over slowly all things in the community.
    I am watching it slowly dying of politcal correctness.
    I am saddened to think that the younger and newer people coming into the community are blinded and ignorant of what is happening.
    Keep up the work Mr. Spencer, and the other people who are speaking out against tyrany.
    Thank you all for what you do.

    Why fight Jihad when you can go about the task of vaporizing it? Like, how about starting with getting our soldiers back home and then making some big craters out of Iraq and Afghanistan? Then, after those craters have been made, more craters can be made as necessary. In this scenario, I do believe more craters would be necessary. This is not fighting Jihad, it is just vaporizing it. OK, I hear you, This is something that would not be considered to be politically-correct. As everybody knows, the United States can only fight in politically-correct fashions–much like the police who can only police in politically-correct fashions as well. Tragically, political-correctness translates into large numbers of senseless deaths when it comes to our military and our police. Yes, I know, that's the way Obama and his administration want it to be–and that's how the Communists want it to be. As the United States has become basically Communist, that's the way things are going to stay, too.
