Memorial Day 2013: Jihad Is Stronger Than Ever

"Flags In" 2012The war on terror is long over. U.S. Army attorney Lt. Gen. Dana Chipman declared last week that the Fort Hood jihad massacre was a “criminal act of a single individual,” not an act of international terrorism. Barack Obama declared the war on terror over yet again last Thursday, saying, “Beyond Afghanistan, we must define our effort not as a boundless ‘global war on terror’ – but rather as a series of persistent, targeted efforts to dismantle specific networks of violent extremists that threaten America.”

Obama announced the beginning of a glorious time of peace: “Today, Osama bin Laden is dead, and so are most of his top lieutenants. There have been no large-scale attacks on the United States, and our homeland is more secure. Fewer of our troops are in harm’s way, and over the next 19 months they will continue to come home. Our alliances are strong, and so is our standing in the world. In sum, we are safer because of our efforts.” To be sure, he described small networks of ill-defined terrorists who wish to do us harm, but expressed every confidence that those networks would soon be dismantled, and aren’t that much of a problem in the first place.

And so the era of peace is dawning. The Taliban, as the Vice President has said, are not the enemy of the United States. Military and intelligence training materials have been scrubbed of any hint that there is any Islamic jihad against the U.S. As far as the U.S. Government is concerned, there isn’t. The Obama Administration has applauded and in some cases actively aided the “Arab Spring” that has brought Sharia rule to Egypt, Libya and elsewhere, and is stepping up aid to the “Arab Spring” jihadists in Syria. Meanwhile, it is abetting through the courts efforts to procure special privileges and accommodations for Muslims in American businesses and educational institutions.

We are at peace, except for our hearts-and-minds operation appealing to what General John Allen termed the “Noble People of Afghanistan,” which will soon be over. All is well. And so in these millennial days of peace, we look back in gratitude upon those who sacrificed all to preserve our nation and our freedom, and marvel at the wondrous times in which we live, when sacrifice is no longer necessary.

So much for fantasy.

In reality, it’s Memorial Day, and the jihad is stronger than ever, more confident than ever, and we are everywhere in denial, with our government and law enforcement officials, as well as the mainstream media, more clueless or complicit than ever. The millennial time of peace in which we live and which Obama tried to sell us last week is illusory, and that will do nothing but become clearer and clearer in the coming days and months.

For example, according to Obama, “the best way to prevent violent extremism is to work with the Muslim American community – which has consistently rejected terrorism – to identify signs of radicalization, and partner with law enforcement when an individual is drifting towards violence.”

The Muslim American community has consistently rejected terrorism? Four separate studies since 1998 have all found that 80% of U.S. mosques were teaching jihad, Islamic supremacism, and hatred and contempt for Jews and Christians. There are no countervailing studies that challenge these results. In 1998, Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, a Sufi leader, visited 114 mosques in the United States. Then he gave testimony before a State Department Open Forum in January 1999, and asserted that 80% of American mosques taught the “extremist ideology.”

Then there was the Center for Religious Freedom’s 2005 study, and the Mapping Sharia Project’s 2008 study. Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule.

And in the summer of 2011 came another study showing that only 19% of mosques in U.S. don’t teach jihad violence and/or Islamic supremacism.

But such realities do not matter. Fantasy prevails everywhere. That’s why a huge adjustment in our political and military culture is called for if we are going to prevail. The only way we can truly honor the fallen today is to call things by their right names, see things clearly, and begin to move toward doing what is necessary to defend ourselves and constitutional liberties.

As dark as the picture appears to be, an increasing number of people are waking up. And we must keep fighting. To do anything less would be to dishonor those we are endeavoring to honor today.

    It is impossible to quantify the damage wrought by leftist, blind as a bat, leadership. Some are appeasers, but others are malevolent. Be that as it may, their insistence on terming Islam as a "religion of peace" is akin to being accomplices to their jihad.
    In no small measure, there is hardly a reason to keep western forces in harms way, if the leadership do not 'fess up to the peoples of the west: Islam is a political death cult, and without admitting as much jihad will become dominant, all over the west.
    As such, if you understand the plans of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia things will start to fall into place, and a push back will be easier to surge – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/25/the-muslim-ma

          Cassandra, it is obvious except to the appeasers and brain dead that Obama and the Progressives are friends of our enemies. They want America to fall because they despise everything she stands for. They have always supported the murderous, the evil, the dictator and the Islamics are their blood brothers.

    • WildJew

      I agree, the left is much worse. Still, former President George W. Bush termed Islam a religion of peace and goodness.

      "I also want to speak tonight directly to Muslims throughout the world. We respect your faith. It's practiced freely by many millions of Americans and by millions more in countries that America counts as friends. Its teachings are good and peaceful, and those who commit evil (i.e., terrorism) in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah." (September 20, 2001, before a joint session of Congress and the American people)

      Asked by Dan Gilgoff of U.S. News & World Report if his repeated references to “jihad” in a speech at the Heritage Foundation characterized Islam in sinister terms, Mitt Romney surprised Gilgoff with this reply:

      "I didn’t refer to Islam at all, or to any other religion for that matter. I spoke about three major threats America faces on a long term basis. Jihadism is one of them, and that is not Islam. If you want my views on Islam, it’s quite straightforward. Islam is one of the world’s great religions and the great majority of people in Islam want peace for themselves and peace with their maker. They want to raise families and have a bright future.

      "There is, however, a movement in the world known as jihadism. They call themselves jihadists and I use the same term. And this jihadist movement is intent on causing the collapse of moderate Muslim states and the assassination of moderate Muslim leaders. It is also intent on causing collapse of other nations in the world. It’s by no means a branch of Islam. It is instead an entirely different entity. In no way do I suggest it is a part of Islam.

      Senator John McCain took to the Senate floor condemning Michele Bachmann because she (and four of her Republican colleagues) called for an investigation into Muslim Brotherhood penetration in our government. Speaker Boehner termed what Bachmann did "dangerous." Senator Marco Rubio joined the anti-Bachmann chorus. Bachmann barely won re-election because many of our party leaders have essentially abandoned her. It is not so much the left I worry about — the left is dangerous but irretrievably loony. It is "my side" I worry about. The political right.

      • Lanie

        Our political class are cowards except for a very few. They are simply afraid of the truth, of reality. How they think they will be saved when Islamic terrorism rules the world is a testament to how far they have sunk into fantasy and evil.

      • WilliamJamesWard

        It seems that our leadership wants to show Islam it is forgiven and if we can just get
        past the Jihadists we can have normal and peaceful relationships (flowing oil profits)
        all the murder any mayhem will just go away. Islam is the problem, no one can doubt
        this with all of the revelations made in spite of the MSM and Political elites who benefit
        from trade with the barbarians. Willful blindness obvious in a psychic block must be
        a strong force in denial and Bush was in denial of Saudi Arabian involvement and it
        is sickening to continue to hear that war against us is the acts of lone wolves, or

    • WildJew

      The American people elect and support leaders to speak soothing words about this global menace. Where is the American Exceptionalism in that?

    • Cassandra

      It is true.Here is a very good an clear article by Bosch Fawstin an ex Muslim. he knows the Muslim problem since he live with it for some years. We should listen to his voice and not to the traitor Obama.

      Bosch Fawstin grew up as a Muslim in America. He's not a Muslim now, and he gives us a clear and riveting account of what's wrong with the way so many politicians, experts, and ordinary citizens regard Muslims, Islams, and jihad. His FrontPage piece was originally published in 2011. It was hugely popular and it's being republished today, Memorial Day 2013.

      Readers here are well aware that Islam is not a religion of peace, though we're still constantly being told it is. Those who say so point to the majority of Muslims who are not violent. Fawstin says these people are not moderate Muslims, they're just not very Muslim.

      Another problem with Muslims who aren’t very Muslim is that they lead some among us to conclude that they must be practicing a more enlightened form of Islam. They’re not. They’re “practicing” life in non-Muslim countries, where they are free to live as they choose. But their “Islam” is not the Islam. There’s no separate ideology apart from Islam that’s being practiced by these Muslims in name only, there’s no such thing as “Western Islam”.

      …Objectively good human beings, who identify themselves as Muslim, give Islam a good face, one far better then it deserves. This only gives us a false impression about what it is we’re facing, with just another excuse not to face it. And this leads to our acceptance into our culture of stealth jihadists who have figured out how to say what we want to hear, while they scheme behind the scenes to further Islamize the West.

      Fawstin blames George W. Bush for setting up a false idea that set us on the wrong path.

      The Muslim world is where the true meaning of Islam can be found in practice. Islam – not any alleged deviant form of it – means misogyny, censorship, anti-Semitism, homophobia, wife-beatings, beheadings, honor killings, pedophilia/“child marriages”, murdering infidels, etc. This is evil, and Islam sanctions every bit of it, but we’ve been told that we must respect “one of the world’s great religions” because it’s a religion. Following 9/11, the only thing George W. Bush knew about Islam was that it was a religion, and that apparently was a good enough reason for him to exonerate it as he did. And his advisor on Islam, David Forte, told Bush exactly what he wanted to hear, that “Nothing this evil could come from religion.” But 9/11 did come from a religion. Whatever else 9/11 was, it was an act of faith.

      And Bush saying “Islam is peace” shortly after 9/11 gave the enemy a gift they couldn’t have foreseen. Here was the one man who was charged to defend America from their attack and here he was defending the very ideology that motivated the attackers. Honesty is the best policy in general, and when it comes to war, it’s a moral imperative to find out the truth, to tell the truth and to act on the truth, no matter what sacred cow is killed in the process. And so a big part of why nearly 3,000 victims of jihad on 9/11 haven’t been avenged is because of respect for religion, even for a religion that calls for our destruction.

      Muslims who really care about Islam are part of an organized effort to spread Islam, and I sometimes refer to this collective effort by Muslims as “Organized Islam.” No matter the means involved, Muslims working towards a more Islamic world want the same thing the jihadists want. This organized effort includes Mosques, Muslim organizations, Muslim individuals writing books, blog posts, etc. And they all invariably engage in anti-Western, Anti-Israeli propaganda, at the very least.

      At the level of the federal government, things have gone from bad to worse under President Obama. At the same time, it becomes more obvious every day to ordinary people that Islam is our enemy. Our should-be leaders are blinded by either fear of Muslims or a desperate desire not to be seen as bigoted.

      A friend sent me this quote from General George Patton: "It is not the sharpness of the bayonet, but the gleam in the attacker's eye, which breaks the enemy line." Our enemies have gleaming eyes and they are well on the way to breaking us. Where are our leaders who can put the gleam into the eyes of the West?

    Is President Obama saying "peace and safety?"…………………"When people are saying, "Everything is peaceful and secure," then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman's labor pains begin. And there will be no escape." (1 Thessalonians 5;3)

  • Mike

    Jihad is strong and is getting stronger. The more that governments sweep jihad under the carpet the stronger the muslims get. Obama has taught us that there is no such thing as jihadists. Many democratic governments have taken up the same thoughts have come out and said that we have to live peacefully with these poor misunderstood people. Te media has also gone along with the same credo. The more we accept their terrorism and killings, the more they will strike us. If we don't stop appeasing them, we will wake up to sharia law very soon. If we went to live in their countries and tried to convert them, we would not live to see the next day. We have to strike back and very soon.

  • Michael Copeland

    Concerning the “Islam is peace” line the public is being not just fantasy-loving, but remarkably obtuse. They treat Bush as a great guru on this subject, while at the same time smiling at his well-known lack of general knowledge.
    The line, as we know, was fed to Bush in the mosque shortly after 9/11 by the Deception Committee of CAIR. It was a lie, and it shows.

  • Texas Patriot

    It is true that Islam is stronger than ever before, but it is also true that the truth about Islam is more exposed and more apparent to all than ever before. Back in 2001 (12 years and thousands of jihadist murders ago), many people were prepared to accept that Islam was a religion of peace and that the 9/11 terrorists were "hijacking" Islam the same way they did the planes they used to destroy the World Trade Center. Now that we have seen what the religion of peace has done in Iraq, and Egypt, and Libya and everywhere else it has replaced secular governments, there are vastly fewer people who remain ignorant of what Islam is and what it's ultimate goals are. After Muslim demonstrators around the world chanted "Obama, Obama, We're All Osama" on 9/11/2012 as our diplomats were being massacred at Benghazi, how could anyone still think of Islam as a religion of peace? Perhaps it is too soon to tell, but it is highly likely that the Boston Marathon massacre and the British soldier murder in London mark the beginning of a new reality in the ability of Muslims to persuade anyone that Islam is a religion of peace.

  • Stephen_Brady

    Many people, over the years, believe that the next world war will be between Russia and the West, or China and the West. It's true, that both countries might take advantage of a war between the West and Islam, although the Russians have no love of Islam.

    My belief is that something will happen which will make 9/11 look insignificant, by comparison, and that a general conflict will follow. It will be a vicious war, to say the least. But eyes are being opened, along with minds. The West will win this conflict.

    • OneCornPone

      The West COULD win if we started now….waiting only makes US weaker..

    • SteveFinSC

      Unfortunately, although many in the West are waking up to the threat from Islam, the fools that run our governments don't see the threat and are rapidly surrendering the entire Middle East to the Islamists. Our current administration is determined to draw back from all our commitments overseas in order to spend the "Religion of Peace Dividend" on domestic social programs that buy them more votes. After all, the Israelis don't vote in our elections no matter what Chuck Hagel says. So, I would say that by the time we get an administration in place that might resist the onslaught, we will be too weak and too misled to do much about it. So while I agree that the war will be vicious, we will lose if we even fight in it. With no money, our military will not be able to effectively project force into the Middle East.
      As a student of Biblical prophesy, I think this is what is supposed to happen. We will either be too weak, too self-absorbed (dealing with a civil war perhaps) or destroyed by the time the battle for Israel gets underway.

  • Lanie

    My son gave his life in 2006 in Afghanistan, as so many other men and women have and in other wars so the slimy, corrupt, fake traitor Obama, who never served this country but has always agitated against it could rise to power to destroy everything America has ever stood for.

    When judgement day comes, I pray that God's mercy is greater than his judgement.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Please accept my condolences for the loss of your son. Nevertheless, it was inevitable that Afghanistan would turn into an unmitigated disaster from the get go since it was premised on unhinged myths about Islam. Moreover, Afghanistan was Bush's baby. You see the Republicans are almost as incompetent as the Dhimmicrats when it comes to protecting America from the threat of Islam.

      • Stephen_Brady

        And what will you have to say when Obama gets us out of Afghanistan, the Taliban the takes over the country, and it becomes the major training ground for Islamist killers in the world? You know that they will come after the United States. If you're the wrong color, they will kill you. Do you get that? Besides its other failings as a "religion", Islam is a racist religion.

        Lanie, my prayers go up for you, on your loss. One of my sons was killed in Afghanistan in the same year as your son, and I lost another son in Iraq. My other son is a full-bird who has no love of Islam (indeed, as a battalion commander in Afghanistan, recently returned, he is quite critical of Obama's handling of that vital war). God bless you.

  • Sky Soldier – 11th Air Assault Division

    The growing number of Islamic Jihad terrorist attacks throughout the world and the recent decapitation of a British soldier in south London, and the U.S. Army Major (psychiatrist) at Ft. Hood murdering innocent unarmed military and civilians is terrible in themselves, but the denial by our government leaders, the news media (most) and now the British Prime Minister Cameron is abysmal. But, just thinking about “Jihad denial” makes me wonder if this complete and thorough blindness … a veil drawn over the spiritual eyes … is what transforms normal human thinking into having an anti-Christ spirit controlling the mind. THE Anti-Christ will take over the world along with the false prophet with Satan working through both … and they cannot have minions of followers (false believers) without their mind being controlled. Just saying…”He who has an ear, let him hear.”

  • Trent

    80% of mosques in America teach extremist idelogy? If 80% of mosques in America have been teaching their worshippers that blowing up things since the late 90s is a key part of Islam, then Islam should have conquered America at least 5 years ago. And yet it hasn't…they have a few bigger mosques and have tricked a few foolish Americans into converting to Islam, but America still remains free and strong. If the Muslims did have a grip on the American heart and soul, then the brave people of Boston would not have been cheering once the last Marathon bomber had been arrested, they would have been too affraid of whatever lawsuits or violence the Muslim community of Boston might have done in reaction to the celebration of the arrest and imprisonment of a Muslim. But they weren't. And the Muslims didn't even try anything themselves. If they, with their alleged power in this country, didn't feel compelled to sue the Bostonians who cheered after that terrorist was arrested for some PC thing like 'racism' and 'disrespect of multiculturalism', which is one of their favorite ways of subjecating the population, then that survey about 80% of mosques teaching extremism has to be wrong.

      Wrong, since Muslims are only 2% of the US population, they have no chance against the rest of us in a Jihad. If Muslims took up arms against the US government, they would be slaughtered. Muslims are too smart to start a war until their percentage of a country's population is much higher. Many Muslims in the USA choose to live in peace because they have it good in the USA.

      Exactly, because Jihadists wear different clothes… hence, wolves in sheep's clothing… such as the illegitimate President in the White House. It is born and taught in Mosques to lie and deceive the infidels (non-muslims) to advance your agenda… and that is what is happening in America, England, and other "westernized" nations. What surprises me though is the blindness by the news media… even Fox News (especially Bill O'Reilly) is a dumb arse when it comes to understanding the evils of Islam. But, could it be because he is driven by whatever the Vatican says and does and it has offered up the olive branch to Islamic leaders to start diaglog… likely to create a one-world religion.

      Yes, liberals use hate speech laws and accusations of Islamophobe and racist to crush dissent in people who dare to disagree with liberal dogma.

    Robert, I am retired Army JAG and though not an attorney I have met & talked with LTG Chipman and he is in fact the Judge Advocate General of the U.S. Army. If the `workplace violence' description of the Fort Hood Massacre is the official position of the Department of the Army, I wish that it be confirmed as such & not be represented simply as the expressed legal opinion of the TJAG. The execrable position of now retired GEN Casey that the Fort Hood Massacre was merely `workplace violence' is currently perpetuated at a higher level than that of LTG Chipman and I believe it appropriate that a source of prestige such as this website and yourself (and God bless you for all that you do) do everything possible to identify the true origin of this cynical & purely political judgement upon that horrific event of 2009, and how the victims & their families are yet denied both justice and their deserved recognition and benefits.
