"Facts do not cease to exist, because they are ignored." Aldous Huxley
As promised, I'm continuing this series on Islam with my guest, and the author,James W. Nelson. In our prior post ("What You Don't Know About Islam Can Hurt You") we addressed the first couple of stages of Jihad. If you're new to this topic, and interested, in light of recent news/media, I suggest you follow our series beginning with "Welcome to Islam".
Stage 3 Offensive Jihad & Stage 0 Clueless about Jihad
(Later posts, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Muslims)
Stage 3 OFFENSIVE JIHAD
Islam is the majority religion in 49 countries. How could this have happened? Christianity began over 2000 years ago. Judaism over 4000 years ago. Hinduism and Buddhism both about 3000 years ago. Islam a mere 1400. How could they have marched across the globe? By the sword! And today—with electronic technology—by a thousand other means.
The word Islam means "submission" or "surrender." Either word works perfectly.
Submission is to Allah, the god of Islam. A follower is a Muslim (one who submits.) Muhammed was Islam's prophet who created the Koran, believing the words came directly from the false god, Allah.
If you do not submit, there will be consequences- some of which we've already seen in the news and media, others less popularized such as the following examples of people who blatantly choose not to follow...
Recently I watched a longvideo by Walid Shoebat, a Palestinian born in 1960, raised a Muslim, converted to Christianity in 1994. He has basically memorized both the Koran and the Bible. I remember especially his description of visiting with "enlightened"/"Ugly" Muslims ("enlightened" and "Ugly" my words.) But when he argued with them they became furious, evidently thinking that he should believe same as them (part 7 of this series will describe the Ugly Muslim terminology, but is what I suspect describe those who became "furious" with Mr. Shoebat).
About a year ago Egyptian Christian, Usama Dakdok visited a local university (in North Dakota) to give a speech on the true goals of Islam. He was met with protesting by various groups from the left-sided politically affiliated to the coexist groups. A student of 'Muslim Student Association' (MSA's are also in high schools), was seen crying "Hate-speech!" (a favorite victim-status word).
NO TRUTH ALLOWED...NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH ALLOWED?
Other agendas are playing into Islam's agenda very nicely. We've seen various groups who seek to destroy Christian influence and values in America (either inadvertently or purposefully). These other groups eagerly support, and are attracted to, those who seek the same. Eventually they end up blindly following a cause that will destroy America.
Back to OFFENSIVE JIHAD.
For Muslims influenced by, and born and raised in the West, the truth of Islam MUST be confusing to them. They often pretend that Islam only allows defensive fighting. Later revelations in the Koran show otherwise. Early koranic verses preach love, peace, tolerance, but later verses crush the early verses with brutal violence.
STAGE 3—When Muslims establish a majority and achieve political power in an area, they are commanded to engage in OFFENSIVE JIHAD, not to fight oppressors, but to fight those who don’t believe in Islam, including Jews, Christians, and any/all other religions (the INFIDELS).
Making it totally clear, Ibn Kathir (Islam’s greatest commentator on the Qur’an) sums up STAGE 3 as follows: “Therefore all people of the world should be called to Islam. If anyone of them refuses to do so, or refuses to pay the Jizyah, they should be fought till they are killed.” Kathir, a highly influential Sunni, was born in 1300, Syria, but just because he's not here today does not mean the quote is not valid. The Qur'an does not change and is unchangeable.
"From Jonathan McLatchie's website; Is Islam a religion of peace? No. Islam pretends to be peaceful. Many Muslims in the West love peace and tolerance. But they didn’t get these values from Islam. They got them from the West, and now they’re reinterpreting Islam based on their Western values...but for dedicated Muslims, however, there are only two possible situations: (1) fighting unbelievers, and (2) pretending to be peaceful while preparing to fight unbelievers. Either way, fighting non-muslims and conquering the world in the name of Allah is always the goal."
A favorite illogical stance goes something like, "...1.3 billion muslims and all terrorists...?" Not quite, but if they aren't a good number support sharia, which is just one step away. All muslims will be called upon to do the work of islam, and "true" muslims will do what their leaders (imans, moolahs) tell them, which is work for the domination of the world, by deceit or the sword, or both.
Stage 0 CLULESS ABOUT JIHAD
Phase 0 will be the hardest to write because this is where most of America stands right now. Our Muslim neighbors and co-workers, our Muslim friends, the Muslims we see at Walmart, are not terrorists. They probably fear terrorism nearly as much as the rest of us, likely even abhor terrorism...so, are they innocent? Yes...and no.
That sounds kind of suspicious. They fear and abhor terrorism, yet they aren't innocent?
Muslims born and raised here have been influenced—whether the Imans and Moolahs like it or not—by western values. When Muslims in western nations go to the mosque, who knows what they are being taught? (Although, there now is a rule book telling Muslims how to disappear into western countries, including shaving the beard and avoiding the mosques. Hmmm....) For those who do go to the mosques, who knows how the hugely conflicted views are absorbed? Especially by the youngest....
An example from Germany (video here), it's pretty obvious these young Muslims have been raised in Germany, because I think they are speaking perfect German, but are "NOT" in love with the German people. Also, I suspect, these youth have been taught at home and in the mosques to despise all infidels, which in the video that's pretty much what they are doing (maybe they didn't know they were being taped.)
I expect, as these youngsters grow, the clueless German powers-that-be, will trust them, and place them—as they likely have placed many others—into positions of power and leadership, and likely right now, today, these "placed" Muslims are a part of Fuhrer Merkel's inner circle (same as obama's inner circle) giving stand-down orders to the police, censuring the news, etcetera.
The youngsters in the video, though—now that they have admitted how they "really" feel—maybe won't get a position of power. Even so, their intelligence will make them very useful when the order for OFFENSIVE JIHAD comes.
Westernized Muslims are ordered to deceive. When you ask your Muslim friends about the stuff you've been learning, they will deny it. Are they practicing taqiyya and lying? No, probably not (my source, though, is a couple years old, and Islam has recently been escalating rapidly.) When they (your Muslim friends) say Islam is a religion of peace, are they trying to trick you? Probably not.
Most Muslims in America have been influenced by western values more than Islam. They may pray five times/day and fast during Ramadan but their knowledge of Islam is limited. They know very little about the Koran and other Islamic sources.
So when they tell you Islam is peaceful they really believe it. So, for the most part, they are truly clueless about jihad.
Thank you for reading this series thus far. I realize this post has gone first this way, then that way, then straight down the rabbit hole.
The mission and message is this: What you have to do, folks, is get informed. The internet is full of information. You need to know what's going on and what is coming [not what "MIGHT" be coming, but what "IS" coming] and you need look no further then what's going on in Europe and other parts of the world. Ignorance/denial of the enemy is our very worst enemy.)
You will find many truths, among them...Mosques in America have been involved in all recent Islamic terrorist attacks and have lied about it to investigators. That tells me that very likely all—at least most—mosques are involved in teaching, preaching, and spreading, Islamic terrorism, or at the very least protecting them. Bottom line, their allegiance is not to America.
