"All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when one is able to attack, they must seem unable; when using forces, they must appear inactive." Sun Tzu (The Art of War)
I'm honored to bring my readers another blog post from my friend and author, James W. Nelson. We've been working together to bring more awareness to the public about Islam. We've worked together on two prior posts (Welcome to Islam and Defeated By "Good"; Islam in America).
I'm fairly new to the scene, James has been following this topic long before you and I heard about it in the news. I think many of us can concur, what we hear about in mainstream news, is either watered down and bias or there one day and gone the next, as if it really resolved itself magically. This simply isn't the reality and paints a false picture of the facts. Since James and I have been collaborating on this topic, I've researched other sources and have found his words to be quite accurate.
The following is by James W. Nelson...
FOX News Sunday: I try to watch the local free FOX because it's the best I can get due to my weak digital TV signal. But, even there they just don't "get it."
They still seem to worry about only isis, as if radical terrorists are the only thing we have to worry about with islam. If necessary I'll repeat this till I'm blue in the face: islam is islam. There is no such thing as a moderate muslim.
There are four stages of islam, and three groups of muslims. Over the next at least seven weeks my Sunday morning fb status posts will describe them, and attempt to offer the truth about islam.
Stage 1 Stealth Jihad
Stage 2 Defensive Jihad
Stage 3 Offensive Jihad
Stage 0 Totally Clueless About Jihad and islam
So here's the lowdown on Stage 1 (we'll also get to stage 2 in this post) "STEALTH JIHAD" the stage the United States is in Right Now!
Muslims in America today are a small minority, too weak to fight us...so, of course they don't. They are greatly outnumbered so they preach peace and tolerance, and practice taqiyya (permission directly from the koran to deceive and lie) without even knowing it. This is all to hide the true intentions of islam. This is the stage of seeming-persecution, victim status, special privileges, bigotry and islamophobia, and the best information our leaders and media can get is handed to them by organizations such as terror-related CAIR...and there are plenty islamic organizations in America like CAIR.
Basically, the current status (and political correctness) ironically sets the stage for a hostile future. We bow down to anyone other than our own citizens. We fall to the minority.
So, like the tadpole growing into the roaring bullfrog, and the tiny acorn becoming the mighty oak, the muslim population (8/2 birthrate) will grow, and grow, until they can win elections and change the law. That's right, folks, when they are the majority there will be major changes...
We've asked ourselves, so far, how much real threat has Islam brought to our country? It's pretty difficult to quantify that since there are several stages to go through before we get to that blatant (black or white) answer.
The Arabian cities of Mecca and Medina (today the "holiest" of islamic sites) were the first to fall to mohammed and islam. Just as today when people believe they need to come to the aid of the poor, defenseless muslims, so did the people of Medina come to the aid of muslims seemingly being persecuted by the Meccans. (In truth the Meccans were simply trying to protect their caravans.) By the end of Stage 3, all Jews and Christians in the Arabian peninsula had either been killed or forced to convert.
The link is to a 24-minute video. The best I've ever seen. The host appears to "NOT" be politically affiliated with Obama, and gives several bites where Obama tells us how wonderful islam is. There is an agenda in his words, and I have always asked my readers to have an open mind and hear other sides to this topic.
The following is the best resource (including video) I've seen to explain what I've discussed: 3 Stages of Jihad
Here's an excellent example of Stage 1 in action
We'll go over just one more stage, then leave the other two for an upcoming post on Honestly, Laura. Stage 2 DEFENSIVE JIHAD
It's difficult to write about this subject because what I describe is quite out-of-sight from most Americans (more in STAGE 0.) They see their Muslim friends as regular people who believe in a different religion. Except Islam is a religion in name only, and that's the part really hard to believe. For years we've been hearing about Islam being just another religion, like Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism. Those religions (and others) preach peace and love.
Islam preaches peace and love only in Stage One: STEALTH JIHAD.
On November 5th, 2009, a Muslim Army Major named Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood in Texas. Hasan charged with thirteen counts of premeditated murder, more than thirty counts of attempted murder.
Shortly after the Fort Hood shooting, CNN posted an article titled “Murder Has No Religion” (by Arsalan Iftikhar), which claimed such attacks are forbidden in Islam. The article began:
Most of the world's 1.57 billion Muslims know that the Holy Qur'an states quite clearly that, "Anyone who kills a human being ... it shall be as though he has killed all of mankind."
The article goes on to portray Islam as a religion that condemns killing of any kind, which, in the early parts of the Quran it does exactly that, but later parts supersede the early parts.
CNN carefully edited portions of a passage that justifies the killing of enemy combatants and used them to show that Islam condemns attacks such as the Fort Hood shooting. While deceptions like this are easily spotted, there is much confusion in the world about islam. Hence, Westernized Muslims pick the verses of the Qur’an they find most attractive, and use those verses to sanitize the rest of the Qur’an.
When we turn to Islam’s theological sources and historical writings (Qur’an, Hadith, Sira, and Tafsir), we find three stages in the call to Jihad, depending on the status of Muslims in a society.
Short retake of STAGE ONE—When Muslims are completely outnumbered and can’t possibly win a physical confrontation with unbelievers, they are to live in peace with non-Muslims and preach a message of tolerance (practicing taquiyya, permission from the Qur'an to lie to the infidel) which is the stage most muslims in America are in right now, except for those like Major Hasan (and others obviously in Stage Three.)
STAGE TWO—When there are enough Muslims and resources to defend the Islamic community, Muslims are called to engage in DEFENSIVE JIHAD (more terrorism for certain) which is the stage some of Europe is in—or rapidly approaching—with the influx of "refugees," especially Sweden, the new rape capital of the world. These stages take time. Islam has been working on world domination for 1400 years; they have spread from Mecca all the way to Indonesia and South Africa, and now are spreading in Europe, Australia, and America.
The Middle East once was nearly all Jews and Christians. For 1400 years muslims have been murdering, cleansing first the Arabian peninsula of all "except" muslims, and recently have stepped up their agenda of forcing sharia law, which no "civilized" person would ever want to live by.
