Explaining the Threat

 

It is apparent through polling data, social media traffic, and a variety of reporting that tens of millions of Americans understand there is something fundamentally wrong with Islam.  However, some people who do have some understanding of the threat do not do a good job explaining why this matters to average Americans and why they should care.

Today, it is hard to find one elected official at the national level who speaks clear truth about the Islamic threat.  To do so is to be defamed and publicly condemned.

Unfortunately, there is a growing cry among GOP leaders at the state and federal level to defend muslims who are supposedly being “singled out unfairly” simply because “of their religion.”

Yet, these same GOP leaders are unaware of the massive jihadi threat present and growing inside the United States right now.

These leaders should keep in mind prominent and popular muslim leaders like Abdurahman Alamoudi and Anwar al Awlaki were befriended and defended by a number of politicians, yet turned out to be Al Qaeda operatives.  One is now in prison, and the other was killed by a U.S. drone strike in 2011.

A professional analysis of any threat begins with who an enemy says they are and why they say they are fighting.  “Terrorists” killed or captured in the United States state they do what they do because it is a command from Allah (Islam’s god) to wage war against non-muslims until the entire world is under sharia (Islamic Law).

The same doctrine these “terrorists” espouse is the exact same doctrine Al Qaeda and the Islamic State teach, and also happens to be the same doctrine taught to muslim children in Islamic schools all over the world, as well as by the most prominent schools of Islamic jurisprudence.

That makes sharia the enemy threat doctrine.

Sharia is the doctrine all jihadis follow, and sharia is what jihadis seek to impose on everyone on earth.

However, there are people who self-identify as “muslim” who do not want to live under sharia nor impose it on others.  While these may be genuinely decent people, the way they live – outside of sharia adherence -does not constitute another “version” of Islam.  They are simply living outside of the requirements of sharia/Islam.

When we as Americans discuss this issue with others who have no knowledge of Islam and sharia, it is important to remember two key points:

  1. This message is best shared between people who have an existing relationship, because it must be shared truthfully and in a manner the recipient of the message can receive it.  The majority of people in America do not understand the threat and, worse yet, have been polluted with a counter-factual narrative that Islam is a “peaceful religion.”  Therefore, when you speak about Islam you are not only battling a lack of knowledge, you are battling the false narrative they have accepted and operated under since 9/11.
  2. The line of demarcation is sharia.  Those who adhere to sharia and seek to impose it on others constitute a threat to liberty, American communities, and the Republic because they seek to overthrow the Constitutional Republic in favor of an Islamic Caliphate (think Ottoman Empire).  While this is true, it is often difficult to discern the loyalty of individual muslims who may not adhere to sharia, despite the fact it is a capital crime in Islam for a muslim not to obey sharia.

The foundation of Western civilization has for centuries been “Love thy neighbor.”

If we care about our neighbor’s well-being, we as citizens cannot support leaders who continue to publicly make false comments and create domestic and foreign policies based on the lie that Islam is not a barbaric ideology that enslaves people.

We must speak truth about the totalitarian ideology that is Islam, yet be discerning about individual muslims who may or may not adhere to it.

As patriotic Americans prepare for Christmas and contemplate the road forward for our nation, UTT encourages all of you to consider our operating guideline:  Speak truth boldly in love.

  1. Thank you John and have a wonderful Christmas holiday.

  2. Thank you John. Where to draw the line?
    Since Allah commands killing, lying and enslaving, he is clearly not God, but is instead an evil character posing as God.
    Adult muslims in western countries, by calling themselves muslims, are choosing to identify themselves with, and support this evil character who has declared war against us.
    The line is clear.

  4. OPINION:

    As UTT accurately asserts, its not only “hard to find one elected official at the national level who speaks clear truth about the Islamic threat”; but given the recent rare public exercise of his 1st Amendment right to free speech entailing a bizarre rebuke of the President’s relentless attempt to safeguard national security in accordance with — EXCLUSIVELY HIS — primary Constitutional duty in time of war*, it appears that Mister Roberts, who was never actually confirmed by the United States Senate to serve as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and was, thus, literally gifted with the office he now holds during a congressional recess by George W. Bush following the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist, has probably tampered with border security, thus the safety of the American people, at the behest of like-minded others.

    Furthermore, since Chief Justice Roberts’ numerous other federal tenures coincided in relevant part with the 1980-1990 operation & cover-up of the Omaha-D.C. based Franklin Pedophile Network and included positions both in the Attorney General’s office during the Reagan Administration, and the Reagan & George H.W. Bush Administrations at the Department of Justice, and Office of the White House Counsel later on, (which with respect to the latter required the monitoring of presidential ethical issues), perhaps he would be amenable to commenting regularly as to what’s on his ostensibly disquieted mind; issues; for example which include the actual facts surrounding the deaths of former Nebraska State Patrolman Gary Caradori who in company with his happy little 8-year guy, Andrew Caradori (aka, “A.J.”) was returning from Chicago to Lincoln, Nebraska in possession of photographic evidence of crimes threaded to said network of political perverts et al, when the Piper Saratoga aircraft he was piloting exploded over Illinois at about 0245hrs CDT on 11 July 1990, an event which though it claimed both of said lives, was never reported by the National Transportation Safety Board; I.e. the NTSB only reports accidents – do the math!
