It's A Religious War, Stupid

The 9/11 committee revelations have painted a picture of two separate administrations—chasing votes, favorable public opinion and intransigent ideology rather than focusing on a group of maniacal Islamists furthering Mohammed’s jihad that has continued since around the 620s.

To save you the math, that’s between 1375 and 1384 years of warfare directed at members of other religions.

And what would any rational person with an IQ above room temperature call a continuation of a religiously-inspired struggle that has lasted almost 14 centuries?

Call me insensitive, but I’d call it a religious war.

But of course in America’s land of political correctness members of the past two administrations and the current democratic candidate for president can’t bring themselves to admit what any person can read straight from the al Qaida manual: The manual clearly states, “the confrontation that we are calling for with the apostate regimes does not know Socratic debates, Platonic ideals, nor Aristolean diplomacy. But it knows the dialogue of bullets, the ideals of assassination, bombing and destruction, and the diplomacy of the machine gun.

“Islamic governments have never and will never be established through peaceful solutions and cooperative councils. They are established as they always have been by pen and gun, by word and bullet, by tongue and teeth.” On a subsequent page the manual’s author writes, “an Islamic government will never be established except by the bomb and the rifle. Islam does not coincide or make a truce with unbelief, but rather confronts it.”

None other than Ayatollah Khomeini warned: “The governments of the world should know that Islam cannot be defeated. Islam will be victorious in all the countries of the world, and Islam and the teachings of the Koran will prevail all over the world.”

Muslims seem to understand this is a religious struggle—why can’t our politicians?

Sheikh Ali bin Khdheir Al-Khdheir, one of the three radical Saudi sheiks who now reside in jail, posts his fatwas on the Internet. He presented his fatwas concerning September 11 as a response for his students in Yemen according to an article in Al Watan:
“The weeping, the sorrow, and the pain over the American victims among those termed ‘innocent’ are strange. Those victims were...unbelieving Americans who must not be sorrowed over, because the unbelieving American is considered a combatant due to his connection to his government, or because he supports it with money or opinion or counsel, as is customary in their political regime, may Allah not multiply such regimes. It is permissible to kill the combatants among them, as well as those who are non-combatants, for example the aged man, the blind man, and the dhimmi, as the clerics agree.”

In other words, all is fair as long as the violence is directed at non-Muslims.

If these comments and opinions were truly on the fringe—one could understand the recalcitrance of politicians to openly state the obvious. But the sad truth is that opinions like this are propagated every day worldwide.

It is time for Jews and Christians, Hindus And Buddhists and believers in all religions and non-believers in any religion to realize we all have a big target on our backs. For all the ecumenical jabbering coming from those who would like to gloss over the facts, the current terror war and religious insurgency faced by people of western civilizations is a religious-inspired war, a jihad that Muslims believe leads to a bloodbath far more graphic and horrible than anything from the Book of Revelation.

Islam does not mean peace—it means submission.

And there are growing numbers of Muslims worldwide who plan for you to submit—peacefully or by force.

It is time for the politicians to face the facts and own up to the unpleasant reality that we are facing a continuation of a jihad that will continue throughout our lifetimes.

This is a religious war and until we can admit it as a society and deal with the associated unpleasantness of being labeled as divisive and Islamaphobes for questioning the growing din of voices calling for open warfare against all non-Muslims, we face eventual conquest.

People in the West, particularly in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, and Russia must decide whether their basic beliefs concerning government, culture, and civilization are worth preserving. And take steps to educate and expose the threats.

We are all soldiers now whether we like it or not.
It’s time for this year’s political candidates to admit it as well.
