This is the third in a 4-part series on The Political Left’s Marriage to the Islamic Jihad
The truth always offends those who do not have it.
In the Sharia (Islamic Law), “Slander” is defined as follows: “To mention anything concerning a person (Muslim) that he would dislike (Um Dat al Salik, Islamic Sacred Law, r2.2).” The Quran, the Hadith, and a consensus of the Muslim scholars all agree that anyone who insults the Prophet and/or Islam must be killed (e.g. Surah 9:12, Hadith – Abu Dawud and al-Nasa’i, from Ibn-‘Abbas). The punishment for Slander in Islam is death.
Currently, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) – the largest international body in the world second only to the UN, made up of all 57 Islamic nations on the planet – is officially calling for “deterrent punishments” (Section VII, para 3) for anyone who offends Islam, and continues to petition the United Nations for such action. This campaign is called “Islamophobia.”
Islamophobia is the imposition of the Islamic Law of Slander. To be called an “Islamophobe” is to be threatened.
Book R of the Um Dat al Salik (Islamic Sacred Law) is entitled “Holding One’s Tongue.” Section 8 is “Lying” with a sub-section titled “Permissible Lying.” This alone is telling. The Sharia quotes the Prophet Mohammad from the authoritative Hadiths of Bukhari and Muslim: “I did not hear (the Prophet) him permit untruth in anything people say, except for three things: war, settling disagreements, and a man talking with his wife.”
The law is clarified further: “It is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible…it is obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory (ibid, r8.2).” Jihad is obligatory.
The Political Left around the globe, and especially in the United States, also uses lying, deceit, and the destruction of those who speak the truth as weapons for their own ends.
The current “Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Summit” is a tremendous example of the deceit of the Obama administration. The U.S. CVE program was adopted from our British allies who created this program in tandem with the British Muslim Brotherhood (MAB and MCB). This ongoing effort identifies “Violent Extremists” as the threat to America. Yet, our enemy self-identifies themselves as “Muslims” waging “Jihad in the Cause of Allah” in order to impose “Sharia” and establish the “Caliphate” (global Islamic State). The Department of Homeland Security, FBI, CIA, Pentagon, and other intelligence and law enforcement agencies at the federal level forbid the use of the above-quoted terms.
If you cannot define the enemy, you cannot defeat the enemy.
It is worth noting that the DHS CVE Working Group has Muslim Brothers Imam Mohamed Magid and Arif Alikhan as members, as well as Muslim Sister Dalia Mogahed. Magid was the VP then President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) which is the “nucleus” for the Islamic Movement in North America and a financial support arm for Hamas, according to documents entered into evidence at the largest Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v Holy Land Foundation, Dallas 2008).
Imam Magid continues as the Executive Director of the Muslim Brotherhood’s ADAMS Center in Sterling, Virginia, which is one of three primary Muslim outreach partners with the FBI (along with MB group MPAC).
Another lie peddled by this administration is that Muslims were an important part of America’s founding, which is utter nonsense and historically untrue. Two notable occasions where this lie was repeated: March 6, 2011 at a speech given by the President’s Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough (now the President’s Chief of Staff) at the Muslim Brotherhood’s ADAMS Center in Sterling, Virginia where he thanked MB leader Imam Mohamed Magid for leading prayers at the White House Iftar Dinner (the end of Eid – the celebration of the first Islamic military victory over non-Muslim forces, but I digress). He continued, “A dinner which, as the President noted at the time, is a tradition that goes all the way back more than two centuries when Thomas Jefferson hosted the first iftar at the White House.”
Thomas Jefferson waged war on the Islamic states (Barbary states). We built up the U.S. Navy to “meet the menace” of the Islamic jihadis, and Jefferson himself, as the Ambassador to France – along with John Adams in a letter to Congress – explained the Muslims were waging war on America’s ships and citizens because it was a command from Allah to do so.
In a speech this week, the President said, “Here in America, Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”
One has to ask, what is the purpose of the President of the United States and his senior advisors repeating an easily refutable lie other than to soften the response from Americans to an overt threat from the Islamic Movement, and aid our enemies.
The President, Attorney General, leadership of both political parties, Cabinet Members, and others all parrot the phrase that this war “has nothing to do with Islam.” Yet, our enemies say Jihad is an obligation Islam commands them to undertake. Either our government is extremely ignorant, naive or this is an intentional move to deceive the public about a massive threat to our security.
Those who speak the truth about this threat are attacked, not just by the jihadi organizations like ISNA, CAIR, and Islamic Centers across the country (not to mention the Southern Poverty Law Center and the ACLU who overtly defend the jihadis), but by the administration.
The Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC) previously had one of the best programs in the nation educating senior military officers on the threat of the Global Islamic Movement until ISNA, CAIR, MPAC and others petitioned the White House, deeming the training “offensive” to Muslims. This action was initiated after a Muslim, who was not even a part of the course, complained. The proctor for the JFSC course, Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley, was publicly chastised by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Dempsey who stated, “It was just totally objectionable, against our values, and it wasn’t academically sound.”
It would be nice for the General to provide the public with any of the evidence, doctrine or facts taught about the Islamic Movement or Sharia that were not locked down in truth. He cannot. I know, because I was one of the instructors at that course.
Together, the Political Left and the Islamic Jihadi Movement are silencing those who speak the truth about a real threat to our Republic. The very Muslims and Islamic organizations our government is directly working with are ideologically and practically aligned with ISIS, Al Qaeda, and all the other jihadi organizations we claim we are fighting.
We are being lied to by both sides of this unholy marriage.
