Cultural Ideology Counts

Beautiful Soccer Fan (No Veil)

A western education for an Islamic true believer only makes him a more efficient and capable jihadi. Western education will not convert or moderate a true believer. It's a mistake to think that these scholastic immigrants already enslaved by an aggressive philosophy like Islam will be able to connect the good things and bounty of the western free world to the principles at the foundation of those nations, particularly when at any given moment the popular culture of that civilization seems hell-bent on its own destruction through feckless greed, trendy idolatries, and willful neglect of those higher values which gave them the platform to exercise those freedoms and advantages.

It's not an accident that the western-style representative republics with their guaranteed protection of minority and individual rights ONLY developed in the West. It's not by chance that ONLY in the western-style representative governments that rule of law is the norm, with due process, an independent judiciary and application of impartial law to enforce contracts and protect property rights has come into being. Just as it's no accident that the nations under sharia law have ended up the way they are. The performance of nations in any objective measurement is due to its institutional systems, and hence we can easily observe disparity in results.

Case in Point: Haiti and the Dominican Republic occupy different halves of the same island. Haiti, under a series of despotic rulers, is a land of squalor virtually unmatched on the planet while the Dominican Republic with its transitional representative democracy, sports beautiful forest reserves and exports cigars and world-class baseball players.

In another example, genetically, the people of India and Pakistan are very similar if not directly related. A major reason for the accelerating success of India and the seething marginalization of Pakistan is the difference in belief systems. The Islamic belief system leads to regression in a bankrupt and fragmented Pakistan while India grows stronger in trading and more educated, while playing well with the free world.

What is the primary cause of such huge disparity in results worldwide?

The answer is simple. Governing belief systems. The third world will continue to experience cholera, genocide, child starvation, oppression of women and minorities and the rest of the preventable tragedies associated with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse until the world as a whole demands more effective and compassionate behavior from local governments. The scourge that plays out in places like Darfur, Sudan, Tehran, Iran and Pyongyong, North Korea will continue as it always has until unenlightened leaders and belief systems used to control peoples are held accountable as the root cause of unnecessary death and destruction.

If the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a founding document of the United Nations, were to be honored by every regime on earth we'd have something to be proud of as members of the human race.

The UN must start enforcing its own standards, subsequently removing members not meeting them. Having a seat at the UN should not be a 'right'. A seat and a voice should be earned through measurable, objective results.

Cultural ideology counts.

Sharia Law For Beginners

Polish Defense League Touts Anti-Islam Posture

Maybe that's Sharia Law for Dummies? Actually, it's Sharia Law for Dhimmis. And who are the dhimmis, you ask; why, it's you and me—infidels who not only accept but welcome our lower position into what is to be an Allah-aproved Islam-instructed Muslim-dominated global ummah. Welcome to the new world regime of Sharia Law, if Bin Laden and your local chapter of CAIR, have their way:

"The subject peoples," [i.e., the dhimmis] according to a manual of Islamic law endorsed by Al-Azhar University in Cairo, must "pay the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya)" and "are distinguished from Muslims in dress, wearing a wide cloth belt (zunnar); are not greeted with ‘as-Salamu ‘alaykum’ [the traditional Muslim greeting, 'Peace be with you']; must keep to the side of the street; may not build higher than or as high as the Muslims’ buildings, though if they acquire a tall house, it is not razed; are forbidden to openly display wine or pork...recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals or feastdays; and are forbidden to build new churches." ('Umdat al-Salik, o11.3, 5).

Roosevelt Speaks, Anybody Listening?

“In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birthplace or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an America and nothing but an American.

"There can be no divided allegience here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room but for one flag, the American flag...we have room but for one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one loyalty and that is the loyalty to the American people.

"If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American.”

Roosevelt's Observations Just As Relevant Today

The Old Rough Rider, Teddy Roosevelt, knew a thing or two. The American Muslim Alliance (AMA), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), Muslim American Society (MAS), Muslim Student Association-National (MSA-N), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), Project Islamic Hope (PIH), and United Muslims of America (UMA) have each rushed to the defense of Sami Al-Arian, an admitted member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

In the plea agreement, Al-Arian admits conspiring to help people associated with Palestinian Islamic Jihad and covering up his knowledge of the PIJ associations by lying to Harper and others. He also admits that he had been associated with PIJ during "the late 1980s and early to mid 1990s."

For this guilty plea, Al-Arian, who has already spent three years in prison before and during his trial, will be deported, after possibly serving a prison sentence of several more months, to be determined by a federal judge May 1...

Al-Arian pleaded guilty to knowing that his brother-in-law Mazen Al-Najjar and two other colleagues, Bashir Nafi and Ramadan Shallah, were associated with the PIJ leadership and covering this up. He also admitted helping Nafi and Al-Najjar, after 1995, when it became illegal to do so because, according to evidence, they kept communicating with PIJ leaders.

And he says in the agreement that he knew of the group's violent acts.

As every American Muslim group in the West steps forward to defend every prosecuted terrorist there is not only a need to visit this link, read and comprehend what Roosevelt rightly believed, but there is a need to comprehend what it means when these so-called moderate Islamic groups rally around one of their fallen.

Roosevelt's words still hold true today. These Muslim groups violate every thing he warned against from top to bottom. And the West continues to fight this war against Islamic aggression with anything but one arm tied behind our soldiers' backs.

A Point Of Reference

Young Western Couple
JUST BECAUSE THE PARTY LINE Nazis and Orthodox Jews believe in something usually referred to as "family values" does not mean that they share a fundamental basis for common ground. The underlying dogmas and not any similarities on a few matchsticks in the box are the issue. Generalizations based on a few similarities between two things mean nothing with regard to sameness of the things. All terms used must be carefully defined and the reasons for any superficial similarities must be subjected to rigorous analysis before two things can be said to be compatible.

¿Comprendez, Muslims, lefties, righties, and rabbits of the hole? Watch out for double meanings, taqiyya, an Arabic word, much in play today in many circles, not just Arabic ones, watch out, my much learned diplomats, for you know not what you see or hear. Logic is no substitute for knowing thine enemy down to the least of his strategic molecules as well as he knows yours. watch out, for you never know just whom might turn out to be the enemy, and you can't measure them all. Truth is the only key...

Boxer Stays The Course

In the last gasp of the recent Boxer-CAIR affair, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and officials from a Muslim advocacy group said Wednesday they have resolved to move forward on improving interfaith relations after smoothing over a skirmish over an honor rescinded by her office.

“I’m putting it all behind me, and we’re moving ahead to work with the civil rights community to better relations among people of all faiths,” Boxer said in an interview. But a spokeswoman for the California Democrat said she does not intend to give back the certificate honoring Basim Elkarra, executive director of the Sacramento chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

The senator also said the concerns prompting her to rescind his service award this month haven’t changed. At the time, Boxer and her staff cited concerns about CAIR’s positions on terrorist groups, contending that CAIR had refused to label Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations. Boxer had been criticized on conservative Web sites for giving the award to Elkarra; she said she did not know her office had done so. CAIR officials met with Boxer and her staff Tuesday. “We have addressed the issues related to this unfortunate and unnecessary incident, and have agreed with Senator Boxer that we should all move forward to build a nation in which people of all faiths work together to promote respect and tolerance,” CAIR said in a statement.

Oh sure. But since when has Islam ever worked together with other faiths to promote respect and tolerance? A Muslim is forbidden to even be friends with the kafir, or infidels, except to deceive them until the day they've grown strong enough to subjugate them to the Islamic ideology. Working together with other faiths to promote respect and tolerance is anathema to Muslims.

Such niceties as respect and tolerance for others outside the cult are not part of Allah's program for his brave new world. The kafir's very existence is an affront to Muslim reflexive airs of superiority. Note Osama bin Laden's rage against the presence of the US base in Saudi Arabia during our defense of Kuwait. Segregation is a primary in the Muslim belief system—EXCEPT WHEN—Muslims are invading foreign lands wearing the mask of victimhood.

CAIR-Los Angeles Executive Director Hussam Ayloush said the group condemns all acts of terrorism. But as usual, the facts portray a different picture, one in which apparently CAIR does not condemn certain terrorists—more accurately, jihadist—groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, which is precisely why the award was rescinded.

It is certain that CAIR applied pressure to Senator Boxer with their "action alerts" and "calls for more understanding." Yet, to her credit, she did not capitulate and will not issue this member of CAIR an undeserved award. Kudos to Senator Boxer. CAIR's refusal to condemn Hezbollah and Hamas while recently in the news for condemning the fictional terrorists on the television show "24" shows the true profile of their boisterous hypocrisy.

Armed and dangerous bonafide terrorists are killing Muslims and non-Muslims alike in the real world while a whipped up CAIR concerns itself with fictional television terrorists.

Whistling For The Muslim Vote In The West

The Best of Peoples...

Elephant wrote: The three main political parties might well know the deal on Islam, but are too concerned with canvassing the Muslim vote, too short-sighted to realize that in the near future Muslims will vote for their own Muslim Party candidates.

History has shown that anytime society "collaborates" with Muslims, they simply lie in wait for the opportunity to usurp power. This is PRECISELY what happened to the United States when they supported the Muhajadeen in Afghanistan. Even though they (the Muslims) sided with the infidel to curtail Communism (the USSR), the infidel later allowed Osama Bin Laden to operate from their land and perform one of the worst atrocities in modern human history; the attack on the WTC.

The bottom line is NEVER COLLABORATE with the infidel; politically, economically or militarily. It will only come back to harm us in this generation or the next.

I wrote: Even though America has done its own share of double dipping and backstabbing in its foreign and domestic policies, I support America in its constitutional state over the sharia law Caliphate to my dying breath. And somehow I suspect Elephant is misusing the word "infidel" in the above collaboration anaylsis.

Jihad Around The World


I knew it would resurface again. I came across a map a few months back which depicted hotspots of global jihad showing us that anywhere there are Muslims aggressively pursuing new turf, there is conflict, emnity, and much caterwauling of victimhood when in reality on the ground and not in the minds of condescending far-left agents of confusion, these Muslims are the bullies. But I somehow misplaced my memory of where I had discovered it. Well, today, thanks to Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer, such a telling resource has been found. In fact, the map and the accompanying article were Spencer's creation in the first place.

This map was an eyeopener for me. Here it is at Jihad Watch.

Many thanks!

Edit: Well, the global map I was seeking is no longer available apparently but here is an interesting site showing American terror events posted.
