NO rational person can still contend that Islamic doctrine, as derived through its immutable Shariah law, is a “benign” religion, a “religion of peace”. So, if this is their position, well, ignore them like the plague. Counter them at every turn.
IN the main, too many individuals are bereft of basic knowledge, regarding Islamic history, Koranic mandates and the general geo-political landscape of the the Mid East. They are clueless.
AS repeatedly stated, the ISIS, an Al Qaeda offshoot, are twin devils. They are spawned from the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia, not unlike most of the jihadi organs! Yet for those who feel more comfortable with audio visual aids, look no further than here:
BUT don’t be lulled into believing that ISIS Sunni jihadists have a monopoly on barbarism and Mahdi-driven fantasies…goals…whatever…They are co-joined with Shia Islamists. DEADLY serious.
Anthony said: “It is hard to imagine how the planet can continue much longer, judging by the rate it is descending into barbarism.”
What is happening Anthony is that we are approaching a revival of a dark history when Islam proudly built pyramids out of human skulls and made blood flow in ravines. And when you see this revival of Islam complete is when you will look back at our current time now and say: “these were the good old days”.
These fighters who gather in Iraq and Syria are not there for the primary goal to fight Maliki and Assad. Abu Omar, a Sunni jihadist fighting in Aleppo said, “If you think that all these mujahideen came from around the world to fight Assad, you are mistaken. All of them came here as it was foretold and promised by the Prophet. It is the war He promised us; the war of The Great Tribulation.”
The Jihadists have a set of belief that one third of the Muslims in the world will be killed.
They study Bible Prophecy and are very aware of the text in Revelation and prepare to be the antithesis of what Christians believe; the white horse rider is the soon to come Mahdi and the “Euphrates” in Revelation 9 to them is their Caliphate in Iraq and the one-third who are slain they consider it about them, the only true Muslims:
“Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.” (Revelation 9:14-15)
They even have their prophetic narrative which includes the peace treaty which they believe is made between the Muslims under the leadership of the Mahdi and the Roman (crusader Christian world) and speak of a battle between the two in which they believe that one-third of the Muslims will lose to join the Christians and betray Islam. These will be unforgiven and end up in hellfire. The other third will be martyred to enter paradise and yet another will gain the victory in Armageddon which they even spell out in their teachings.
The mission they have to to do is a great slaughter in which blood will be spilt as a river and heads will pile up in mounds. Indeed, on June 10 the Islamic State in Al-Sham (ISIS) burst upon the world with the capture of Mosul in Iraq, the effective obliteration of the Iraq/Syria border (and possibly the Iraqi state itself), a highly-self-publicized massacre of prisoners (some accounts say more than 1,700), the sudden creation of up to half a million internally displaced refugees in Iraq, and emphatic threats to eradicate Shia Muslim shrines, the Kingdom of Jordan, and (as of June 22) to do the United States more harm than Osama bin Laden ever did. In mid June, ISIS posted pictures on Twitter that appeared to show the massacre of 1,700 Iraqi soldiers after the fall of the city of Tikrit.
The United Nations said on Tuesday that at least 1,000 people, mainly civilians, had been killed and roughly the same number injured in fighting and other violence in Iraq in June as ISIS swept through the north.
Victims included a number of confirmed summary executions committed by ISIS.
When the ISIS march the victims to slaughter, they are not thinking in any way shape or form in modern concepts. They think as if they are taking orders from when Abu Bakr ordered Khalid bin Al-Walid in 633-634 A.D., to fight the Persians and Christians from Ullays on the Euphrates River. Khlaid made a vow to Allah during the battle that if he could defeat them that he would make the canal that surrounded their village literally run with their blood. He commanded that all who were defeated be taken alive. There were so many captives that it actually took a day and a half to behead all of the men. The blood however, coagulated and Khalid’s troops were forced to eventually release water into the canal in order that it would run red with the blood of the slain lest Khalid’s vow be left unfulfilled. Abu Jafar Muhammad ibn Jarir At-Tabari, the early Islamic historian and theologian recorded this event:
“O Allah, if you deliver their shoulders to us, I will obligate myself to you not to leave any one of them whom we can overcome until I make their canal run with their blood.”
Owing to this it has been called Blood Canal to this day.
The behavior of ISIS has been nothing short of atavistic, and to find a similar political dynamic (and savagery) in history we must reach back seven centuries to the Mongol conqueror Timur (Tamerlane) – who, incidentally, did slaughter the populace of Baghdad and build pyramids of their skulls.
(A tower built by a Muslim Ottoman general from the skulls of his Christian enemies in Serbia has topped the list of “World’s Greatest Osteological Marvels,” according to U.S. website MentalFloss.com.)
Think of this Caliph they want to give allegiance to as the coming Babar who wrote in his Babur-nama about destroying Jain temples at Urwa near Gwalior; and, he raised a tower of Hindu skulls at Fatehpur Sikri and Chanderi (Babur-nama, Volume II, p. 612).
There were 60-80 million butchered during the Muslim Mughals in India alone and who could even tally what these did in the rest of the world.
Piling human skulls is in their songs, not in only ancient times, but today as I write. The most favorite of Muslim terrorists is the song “Sawarem” (The Sword) in which they sing about towers of skulls. Here it is fully translated (start at 1:20):
God was not kidding when He told us of Abaddon “the destroyer” (Revelation 9:11) and we see them destroying and even proudly singing about destruction (start at 00:40):
“Storm O winds with torment and destroy … do not leave any trace … be artistic O hurricanes … let the seas strengthen its rage …”
While Americans say that such men live in a fantasy world they forgot that they themselves have their own fantasies in which they bank on secular and Sufi Muslims believing they are peaceful. The secular Muslim can change on a dime into a fanatic fundamentalist just as we saw the Sufi Muslims last week join the ISIS.
When Bob Bergdahl spoke on the Rose Garden alongside Obama starting with the Bismillah (In the Name of Allah) many thought “so what”? We said that the Bismillah is not something they use only when they slaughter a chicken, its also a call to war. And I can find you clips from my days when I was a child where the Bismillah is all about war. Tell me, if our favorite hit song during secular Egypt in 1973 titled “Bismillah” seem to you about peace:
Here, a translation might help:
“Bismillah (in the name of Allah) Bismillah Bismillah
Allah is Great Bismillah
Bismillah Call to the prayer Bismillah Bismillah
We greet our Jihad in Bismillah Bismillah
Allah Akbar (Allah is Great)
And say O Lord
The victory is great
We crossed the Sinai in Bismillah Bismillah”.
And why do you think the “secular” Egyptians in 1973 wanted to cross the Sinai?
Here is Farid Al-Atrash, before these days singing. He is one of the best classical romantic singers in the Arab world. Does this song sound romantic:
(start at 1:08)
Here, I will help translate this one as well:
“Tell them where will you [the Jew] hide?
For you have a bitter appointed day
We united crescent and cross
And we gathered far and near
It will be a destined day
That history will record
They glorified Allah and said:
Allah Allah Allah
Allah is great
Allah is great
There is no God but Allah”
That “bitter appointed day” is when the stones cry out about the hiding place of the Jew.
UNDOUBTEDLY, to internalize the barbarism descending upon the Mid East, as it flows past myriad borders and poises to breach western gates, one must, at first blush, view it from a dispassionate perspective. In other words, as counter intuitive as it may sound, the fact of the matter is that the blood flow referred to above is commensurate with Islam’s inextricable relationship to it.
TO clear through the muck, having contributed to the following policy paper, this blogger gifts (via an excerpt) to the readership, an added perspective for further elucidation:
*That Muslims have exceeded the depravity of Nazis by using their own children as human bombs tends to hinder objective and comprehensive analysis of Islam. This essay will instead provide a thoroughly documented, interdisciplinary, transnational, and multiracial study of Islam which men with eyes and ears and a modicum of learning will discern as a unique form of paganism, one that sanctifies evil in the name of a monotheistic theology.
It is well known that Islam today is a cauldron of murderous hatred. We are no longer shocked by the fact that Muslims hate not only non-Muslims but other Muslims. It is common knowledge that Sunnis and Shiites hate each other, that both abhor Sufi Muslims as well as other Islamic sects. True, something comparable to this may also be said of certain Christian sects before the Reformation—and we dare not forget that Christians slaughtered Jews down through the centuries. But as Dr. Michael
Ledeen has documented, and as will presently be seen, Islam is unique in that its love of death or necrophilia remains an ineluctable aspect of its theology.
Moreover, despite the murderous hatred Muslim sects display toward each other, we need to understand the character of their supreme role-model and prophet, Mohammad, the author of their holy Scripture, the Quran.
We need to transcend vacuous tolerance, and we dare not yield to the timidity
that poses as “moderation” in discussing Islam. We deplore the fact that Islam’s cult of hatred and love of death is downplayed by scholars who are reluctant or incapable of revealing the theological underpinning of this hatred magnified by necrophelia. Indeed, scholars in the West are reluctant to say anything pejorative of a creed that poses as a worldwide monotheistic religion. We can no longer afford this reticence because weapons of mass murder are now available to this enemy. Our survival requires us to expose the ugly truths about this enemy. We need to understand why Muslims, whether
they are Arabs in Saudi Arabia or Persians in Iran, hate Americans and Jews as well as each other. This is a fearful amount of hatred animating a strategically significant percentage of the estimated 1.5 billion Muslims on planet earth!
Is it not awesome that so many people who worship Allah can harbor so much hatred—enough to commit even genocide? This horrendous phenomenon is a terrible reflection on what civilized people deem a monotheistic religion. To clarify this theological mystery in a candid and convincing manner is precisely the primary concern of this essay. But first, we must come down to earth and remove the many obstacles that hinder this intellectually complex study of Islam without being deterred by its emotionally-charged consequences, which seem to silence polite commentators.
If Islam is indeed a cauldron of hatred that animates the leaders of 1.5 billion Muslims and dozens of Muslim states, is it any wonder that many people in the West see this awesome, widespread hostility as an irremediable and impossible threat? Is it any wonder that very few Western scholars and statesmen display the candor and courage to discuss the theological nature of this threat? What irony! The threat is from an enemy that defines us as the enemy—even though we sincerely profess to be truly benevolent and peace loving. Our benevolence is obvious. We are even reluctant to call our
enemy an “enemy,” let alone as our sworn and implacable enemy, lest we insinuate that this strange enemy is evil. We hesitate to use any pejorative language to describe this enemy, not only because we fear it may antagonize him and prompt him to violence, but also because we live in a non-judgmental age that avoids calling even an openly declared enemy evil—even one who gleefully screams “Death 2 to America” and vows to “wipe Israel off the map”! Some observers believe that the liberal and social
democracies of the West are suffering from a mental disorder. Let me try to explain…..
