Allah’s Soldiers & Worldwide Terror: “Cradle To Grave.” What IS The Common Denominator? Hint: ISIS (et. al.) IS Islamic! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

FOR the most part, those of us who are well versed – properly schooled, if you will – in the ins and outs of Islam and its inextricable attachment to blood understand why, tragically, countless non-Muslims are totally confused about Islam’s central and non-negotiable murderous dictates. Imperatives.

EFFECTIVELY, befuddlement prevails in the west, akin to “deer in headlights” syndrome. More specifically, the following “gems” add to the mental distortion, and they are courtesy of HUSSEIN Obama and his kindred spirits. Twisted.

1. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”

2. “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

3. “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

4. “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”

5. “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”

6. “Islam has always been part of America”

7. “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

8. “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

9. “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

10. “I made it clear that America is not – and will never be – at war with Islam.”

11. “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”

12. “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

13. “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”

14. “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

15. “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

16. “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”

17. “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

18. “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”

19. “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

20. “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

OMINOUSLY, demonstrably, this inability “to see from there to here” creates for western leaders (both elected and non-elected) what amounts to “doubling-down” as a “tactical strategy.” Boxed-in. Locked-in. As such, it must be recognized how a preponderance of their (mis)schooling (in this particular arena) went so awry, that which will assist westerners in deconstructing their Arab/Muslim apologias. Invariably, this leads the reader to the tutelage of the late (non-lamented) prof Edward Said – may he burn in pagan moon-god Allah’s hell-hole!

IT is to this intended (mis)education process that those who should know better (mis)learned their lessons. To wit, they are incapable of handling the gravest threat to the west since World War 2 – Islamic-based terrorism! Just think of it this way: should anyone expect a person who is blindfolded to be able to save themselves, pointedly, never mind others, while walking down a gangplank into shark-infested waters? Hardly.

EVEN so, before readers can internalize how the west – with America, as its titular leader – got from there to here, know that the aforementioned non-lamented prof (a so-called “Palestinian”) bears out-sized blame for educational malfeasance. Wait and see. Of course, scores of others were (still are) in league. 

IN tandem, it is along this site’s continuum of truth-telling that the leadership and self-appointed elite must also be subdivided into the following two categories: those who will always be ideologically predispositioned to viewing Islam as a “holy” religion, regardless of this and that heinous act of Allahu Akbar terror; juxtaposed against others who delve into this (more than thorny) subject matter without preconceived biases, genuinely, seeking to understand the maze-like labyrinth of the Arab/Muslim supranational collective, aka ummah.

IT is under this dangerous umbrella that the “unholy” prof reigned supreme, perched aloft at New York City’s Columbia U, a well-known leftist-driven and Arabist-embracing fiefdom! Yes, yours truly knows this Morningside Heights terrain all too intimately.

Columbia University’s English Department may seem a surprising place from which to move the world, but this is what Professor Edward Said accomplished. He not only transformed the West’s perception of the Israel-Arab conflict, he also led the way toward a new, post-socialist life for leftism in which the proletariat was replaced by “people of color” as the redeemers of humankind. During the ten years that have passed since his death there have been no signs that his extraordinary influence is diminishing.

According to a 2005 search on the utility “Syllabus finder,” Said’s books were assigned as reading in eight hundred and sixty-eight courses in American colleges and universities (counting only courses whose syllabi were available online). These ranged across literary criticism, politics, anthropology, Middle East studies, and other disciplines including postcolonial studies, a field widely credited with having grown out of Said’s work. More than forty books have been published about him, including even a few critical ones, but mostly adulatory, such as The Cambridge Introduction to Edward Said, published seven years after his death of leukemia in 2003. Georgetown University, UCLA, and other schools offer courses about him. A 2001 review for the Guardian called him “arguably the most influential intellectual of our time.”

The book that made Edward Said famous was Orientalism, published in 1978 when he was forty-three. Said’s objective was to expose the worm at the core of Western civilization, namely, its inability to define itself except over and against an imagined “other.” That “other” was the Oriental, a figure “to be feared . . . or to be controlled.” Ergo, Said claimed that “every European, in what he could say about the Orient, was . . . a racist, an imperialist, and almost totally ethnocentric.” Elsewhere in the text he made clear that what was true for Europeans held equally for Americans.

This echoed a theme of 1960s radicalism that was forged in the movements against Jim Crow and against America’s war in Vietnam, namely that the Caucasian race was the scourge of humanity. Rather than shout this accusation from a soapbox, as others had done, Said delivered it in tones that awed readers with erudition. The names of abstruse contemporary theoreticians and obscure bygone academicians rolled off pages strewn with words that sent readers scurrying to their dictionaries. Never mind that some of these words could not be found in dictionaries (“paradeutic”) or that some were misused (“eschatological” where “scatological” was the intended meaning); never mind that some of the citations were pretentious (“the names of Levi-Strauss, Gramsci, and Michel Foucault drop with a dull thud,” commented historian J. H. Plumb, reviewing the book for the New York Times”)—never mind any of this, the important point that evoked frissons of pleasure and excitement was that here was a “person of color” delivering a withering condemnation of the white man and, so to speak, beating him at his own game of intellectual elegance….continue reading Said’s fabricated and bastardized historical narrative, that which has poisoned generations of students and many of their profs!

YES, know thy world history well. Indeed, this is a mandatory prerequisite – at least, it should be – in order to recognize when it is being flipped upside its head. Revisioned.

ALL of which brings us back to the scourge of Islam, despite the jive-talking “intellectuals” (mainly, but not exclusively, disciples of Said) via their back-benching cover of its bloody roots. Yes, the continuous and onerous shell game of “blame and shame”, that which is totally directed at westerners, albeit, in a professorial way!

IN this regard, let’s place our (western) cards on the table, and sans any sophisticated sophistry re the aforementioned scourge of Islam. Period.

IT is not for nothing that soldiers for Allah, from “cradle to grave”, are shedding infidel blood on a global scale. Still yet, to understand the roots of their behavior, a few Islamic cultural “norms” must be exposed, and that’s even before Koranic underpinnings are explored. Sickening: An ISIS militant stands over Shurgawi's bloodied corpse and holds the soldier's head aloft. Crowded around him young boys, some of whom gaze with interest at the body, while others pose for photographs

(Islamic militant stands over Shurgawi’s bloodied corpse and holds the soldier’s head aloft. Crowded around him young boys, some of whom gaze with interest at the body, while others pose for photographs)

ISLAM’S CULTURAL/FAMILIAL “NORMS”:

  • How many understand the psycho-sexual components of Islamic doctrine, duly described by Dr. Nancy Kobrin, a psychoanalytic expert on Islamic suicide terrorism? If not, time is of the essence: “The Psychological Roots of Islamic Terrorism.”
  • And, even though one can fill book after book with the unfathomable (that is, by non-Islamic standards) ecstatic reactions (both male and female) exhibited by Allah’s Muslim Terrorists when infidels are slaughtered on behalf of Allah, there are enumerable “motherly” ones (read: non-anomalies) which stand out for obvious reasons.

  • Concomitantly, is it any wonder that Islam’s kiddies are ripe for terrorizing others, in so far that pricing sex with them is a cultural “norm”, again, even before Koranic underpinnings are understood? Phew.

RESULTANT, ISIS’s bloody swathe must be viewed through its underlying theological roots, and not for what non-Muslims wish it to be, that is, a “distortion” of Islam! Know that it IS the absolute literal interpretation of this “holy” religion. Inestimably, millions upon millions of Muslims adhere to said immutable doctrine. Simply, it is the return to a seventh-century lifestyle and legal dogma, in the expectation of ushering in the Islamic-driven apocalypse. Incontestably. In the interim, their main goal is the reestablishment of the Caliphate through the submission of one population after another, consequentially, conquering massive swathes of territory.

INDEED, for example, when Islamic State leaders exhort to their followers to “stone the enemy”, “poison their wells”, destroy “infidel crops”, etc., these are Koranic-based instructions based upon the “laws of jihad.” 

INSTRUCTIVELY, see: Crush Your Enemies!

IN reality, ISIS is as tied to Islamic doctrine as pigs are to their sh-t. Inextricably. Emphatically, when apologists opine that ISIS distorts the “peaceful” tenets of Islam, that it is “not Islamic”, it is comparable to what liars, fools, or knaves are wont to do – but on steroids!

AND anyone who still believes that making nice-nice with Allah’s Muslim Terrorists – be they so-called “refugees” or what not – will buy them respite from the terror, well, stop hallucinating. It ain’t gonna happen. Never and never!! Mind you, the type of behavior described within The Rebel video (linked above) is just a teeny tiny taste of what they have in store for their infidel western neighbors. Again, millions upon millions ascribe to the Koran’s literal interpretation. Understood?

Let not the believers take the disbelievers as Auliya (supporters, helpers, etc.) instead of the believers, and whoever does that will never be helped by God in any way, except if you indeed fear a danger from them. And God warns you against Himself (His Punishment), and to God is the final return. Qur’an 3:28.

Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends. They are friends with one another…” Quran 5:51

“He that chooses a religion over Islam, it will not be accepted from him and in the world to come he will be one of the lost.” Quran 3:85

“Let not believers make friends with infidels in preference to the faithful – he that does this has nothing to hope for from Good – except in self-defense. God admonishes you to fear Him: for to God shall all return.” Quran 3:28 ……

AS to frontal jihad, the laundry list is too voluminous, but the following Koranic instructions and obligations should round out the impending danger:

  • “But do not think of those that have been slain in God’s cause as dead. Nay, they are alive! With their Sustainer have they their sustenance. They are very happy with the reward they received from Allah (for dying as a shaheed) and they rejoice for the sake of those who have not joined them (i.e., have not yet died for Allah).” (Quran 3:169-70)
  • “Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure” (Quran 61:4).
  • “Allah has purchased the believers, their lives and their goods. For them (in return) is the Garden [of paradise]. They fight in Allah’s Cause, and they slay and are slain; they kill and are killed . . . it [paradise] is the promise of Allah to them.” (Quran 9:111)

YES, this IS Islam. Plain and simple.

ISIS have got a kid to execute the 'Israeli spy'

MESSAGE FAILED

Obama, Israel’s Enemy, Islam’s Best Friend;Committed To Israel’s Destruction.PM Netanyahu’s Failure Of Leadership…The Guideposts…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

President Barack Obama

REPEATEDLY, ad nauseum…ad infinitum…this site has warned: Barack HUSSEIN Obama is a clear and present danger, not only to America and Israel but to western civilization. That’s a mouthful.

AGREED, in general, such a sweeping statement sounds so over the top it is easy to dismiss it as hyperbole. Crazy-talk. Alas, have no fear, this blogger remains in good company. A stalwart American patriot, ex Rep. Colonel Allen West, has publicly stated the same thesis.

On Wednesday, former GOP Rep. Allen West minced no words,calling Barack Obama an “Islamist” whose administration is “working counter to the security of the United States of America.” And, he added, “all” of the evidence points to that conclusion.

According to West, that is the only way one can rationalize Obama’s actions regarding foreign policy, especially on matters pertaining to the Middle East. He cited six specific examples:

  1. The unilateral release of five senior Taliban back to the enemy while the enemy is still fighting us.
  2. Providing weapons of support to the Muslim Brotherhood-led Egyptian government — F-16s and M1A1 Abrams tanks — but not to the Egyptian government after the Islamist group has been removed.
  3. Negotiations with Qatar and Turkey, two Islamist-supporting countries.
  4. Negotiations with Hamas, a terrorist group.
  5. Returning sanction money, to the tune of billions of dollars, back to the theocratic regime led by Iran’s ayatollahs and allowing them to march on towards nuclear capability.
  6. Obama’s evident support of Islamists in Libya.
MANY others are finally jumping on board. Better late than never. Welcome to “Adina’s world”. Heartburn.
YET, even when the proofs are so overwhelming and manifest, countless still equivocate, preferring to deny the obvious by burying the evidence in the sand. On the other side of the spectrum, the verily malignant agree with said anti-western outcome! Damn them…
FOR the absolute record, being that this site’s inception coincided with the campaign for 2012, several high decibel shout outs came from this quarter.  
Shout Out One:
WITHOUT mincing words, this blogger predicted: ushering in Barack HUSSEIN Obama for a second-term would be nothing short of a national disaster. To wit, how’s that for a prognosis, as America keeps sinking further down the abyss since his re-election?
Shout Out Two:
Shout Out Three:
TRAGICALLY, three weeks after his re-election it was mandatory to recap, once again, the awaiting western disaster: treason by any other dressage is still treason; the POTUS and his Brotherhood Mafia! As prognosticated in Nov. 2012, the level of treachery, in a little less than 2 years, has come to pass. How could it not?
NOW, exposing the Muslim Brotherhood is a top priority for this investigative journalist and ground zero is always the best place to begin the hunt. Resultant, in relation to the Islamist-in-Chief, even if one attempts to ignore his childhood Wahhabi roots, his adult alliances are more than resonant.
CONSIDER his close relationship with (the late, non-lamented) Edward Said, an Islamist and close collaborator with the godfather of suicide terror, “Chairman” Arafat! Yes, having connections with some who “watched” Said’s reign of terror from his perch at Columbia U., it should be understood: what is written about him, re his anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-western activities, is merely the tip. Let us leave said “birdies” out of the mix. Nevertheless, the following speaks volumes but just scratches the surface:
IT is within said association(s) and mental prism that one must view the Islamist-in-Chief’s latest treachery. Visceral hatred. Obama’s, for lack of a more accurate descriptor, fu-k you to Israel.

A new report reveals that US President Barack Obama’s administration stopped a shipment of missiles to Israel late last month and tightened weapons shipment procedures to Israel, as tensions between the two nations grow amid Operation Protective Edge.

The report in the Wall Street Journal, released Wednesday night, cites US officials in Obama’s administration, who say they discovered Israel had requested a large number of Hellfire missiles directly through military-to-military channels. An initial batch of the missiles was about to be shipped, according to sources in Israel and the US Congress.

At that point, the Pentagon stepped in and put the transfer on hold. Further, top White House officials instructed various US military agencies to consult with the US State Department before approving any additional requests from Israel.

A senior Obama administration official was quoted in the report as saying the transfer shouldn’t have been a routine “check-the-box approval,” given Israel’s defensive operation in Gaza against Hamas, which is recognized as a terrorist organization by the US.

The decision to clamp down on future transfers was the equivalent of “the United States saying ‘the buck stops here. Wait a second…It’s not OK anymore,'” said the official.

A Israeli defense official confirmed the reports to Walla! on Thursday, saying “the US delayed a shipment of Hellfire missiles to the Israeli airforce.” He added “apparently it was (done) on the background of national tension” with Israel.

Obama has been at odds with Israel over the defensive operation in Gaza, making various attempts to press Israel into accepting a truce with the adamant terrorist organization of Hamas. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu reportedly responded to the pressure by telling the administration “not to ever second guess me again,” after Hamas committed one of its many ceasefire violations.

Currently a new five-day ceasefire has come into effect as of Wednesday at midnight, with Obama calling Netanyahu shortly thereafter to push for a“sustainable” ceasefire.

According to US officials cited in the Wall Street Journal report, the Wednesday night phone call between Obama and Netanyahu was “particularly combative.”

“Discovering” military-to-military arms transfers

The report noted that on July 20, ahead of the Hellfire missile cancellation, the IDF asked the US military for various munitions such as 120-mm mortar shells and 40-mm illuminating rounds, without the knowledge of Obama’s administration.

Three days later the request was approved by the military, without Obama or US Secretary of State John Kerry being approached for approval, given that their approval was not required for such a transfer.

A US defense official added that the standard review process in such requests was properly followed.

The transfer without Obama’s unnecessary approval was followed by asimilar incident ahead of the Hellfire cancellation, which occurred the same day as the July 30 IDF strike on terrorists adjacent to a UN school, which the US slammed as “disgraceful.

In response, the IDF confirmed it targeted Islamic Jihad terrorists in the vicinity of the school. Previously the IDF provided video evidence that Hamas fires rockets from inside schools; further, UNRWA schools have been used in at least three cases to store Hamas rockets, after which UNRWA repeatedly returned the rockets to Hamas.

On the same day as the UN school strike, US reports said the 120-mm and 40-mm rounds had been released by the US army to the IDF, with one Obama administration official saying “we were blindsided.”

A US defense official responded, saying “there was no intent to blindside anyone. The process for this transfer was followed precisely along the lines that it should have.”

Demonstrating the tense ties between Obama’s administration and Israel, a senior official of the administration told the Wall Street Journal “we have many, many friends around the world. The United States is their (Israel’s) strongest friend.”

“The notion that they are playing the United States, or that they’re manipulating us publicly, completely miscalculates their place in the world,” added the official.

The US decision to tighten down on arms transfers to Israel comes as the UK is threatening similar actions. On Tuesday, the British government threatened to suspend 12 arms export licenses to Israel if fighting resumed in Gaza.

Lessons Learned:

THE fact of the matter is that if one truly subscribes to professional (and personal) integrity and honesty as ones barometer, one cannot, one dare not, let PM Netanyahu (other top Israeli leaders too) off the hook, in relation to “taking care of urgent business”. How so? For if “Bibi” had any inclination to finally end Hamas’s reign of terror – their decade-long missile attacks upon Israel’s population centers – destroying Hamas’s top leadership, their command and control center, is a prerequisite to said victory. In effect, such an operation, according to top Israeli military experts, should have taken place the first week of Israel’s latest – out of numerous such “campaigns” – smoke and mirrors show. This site’s high level defense-related contacts concur. Understood? 

INHERENTLY, the heavy-duty ordinances needed for such an operation have always been at the ready, current re-supply needs notwithstanding. Yes, hell fire missile “hold ups” by the Islamist-in-Chief are the mark of an avowed enemy. Let there be NO doubt. 

The Obama administration has tightened its control of arms transfers to Israel, requiring White House and State Department approval for even routine munitions requests by Israel, according to the piece.

“Instead of being handled as a military-to-military matter, each case is now subject to review – slowing the approval process and signaling to Israel that military assistance once taken for granted is now under closer scrutiny,” the story said.

The report came out on the same day that the Istanbul-basedHurriyet Daily News reported that the US cleared a potential $320 million advanced medium-range airto- air missiles sale to Turkey “amid increasing security risks in the region.”

STILL, the question begs: why wait until supplies run low, if, in fact, the goal is to put an end to the attacks? Common sense dictates that enough missiles be reserved for the coup de grace, not for the “tit for tat” responses, or the bizarre, counter-intuitive, mantra “quiet will be met with quiet”. Truly, when operating against a genocidal foe, what kind of rational leadership would ever adopt such an Orwellian “strategy”?  Indeed, as a result, Israel’s missile supplies are wasted on attacking empty buildings via the smoke and mirrors show, all the unintended, yet unavoidable, collateral damage beside the point.

REGARDLESS, in reality, Israel’s PM (for a host of reasons, best left for another discussion) has decided in the negative to remove the threat in its entirety, and will accede to as many “case-fires” as it takes to keep from toppling the top terror leadership. Believe it – or not. 

NEVERTHELESS, the above Israeli malfeasance towards its majority Zionist public does not obviate Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s palpable hatred. It just gives “Bibi” a tailor-made excuse for not FULLY vanquishing an admittedly genocidal foe. History will be the judge….this American-Israeli is just stating things as they are. Period.

MOST significant of all, the heretofore leader of the free world is aiming for America’s and Israel’s jugular, whatever it takes! Concomitantly, the rest of the west will fall. That’s the plan… almost on track!

THE fact that Washington effectively owns (you read that right) Jerusalem’s decision makers (for decades) makes the Islamist-in-Chief’s task that much easier. Hmm…the ever “elusive” IDF victory, at least since 1973, understood for what it is. More succinctly, for what it isn’t!

UC BERKELEY’S PRO TERROR PROF HATEM BAZIAN:”ISLAMOPHOBIA” RISES TO “THOUGHT CRIME” STATUS! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Hatem Bazian:Co-Founder of the Violently Anti-Semitic/Anti-Israel Group Called Students For Justice In Palestine (SJP)

WESTERNERS must internalize the weapons waged against them to empower Islam, both stealth-wise and via frontal assaults. Unless, and until, this is accomplished, rest assured, Islam will (eventually) prevail and western civilization will wither away. Die.

WHILE frontal assaults are obvious once body parts start exploding, their “under the radar” methods are impossible for most to recognize, unless one is steeped in the arena of stealth jihad. Yet, having explored its underbelly for more than a decade, it is this blogger’s firm diagnosis, even the so called smart set have a hard time grasping its essence. True, many within this grouping are willfully blind, but others just don’t get it. Well, way past time for folks – whatever their mental acuity – to smell the jihad. Readers, this site implores: open your eyes, learn the signs gifted for your benefit and remove the wax from your ears, if it’s necessary – before it is too late!

IN line with this site’s ongoing mission, it is clear that many require edification, re the newfangled, wholly concocted “phobia” termed “Islamophobia”.

FURTHER complicating our common struggle, so-called human rights orgs inexplicably muddy the waters, whether by default or by design. Regardless, it matters not a whit, the outcome is the same. Specifically, the Online Hate Prevention Institute (OHPI) is one such interfering entity. Sheesh.

AS such, with the above players in the mix, CAIR, the western propaganda arm of the Brotherhood Mafia, heads straight for the jugular via a manufactured term (with the full cooperation of a complicit media) to SILENCE all criticism of Islam/Shariah law, that which underpins jihad! In this respect, they are able to gain a two-fer: continue with their jihad non-disturbed and to intimidate those – via law fare and other methods – who speak the truth into deafening silence and depletion of their funds. Deadly clever. 

IN this regard, Hatem Bazian is a dedicated, committed and very dangerous Islamist, one who happens to wield significant influence within leftist, radical academia. And not just any old prof will suffice to wield the LATEST weapon, but one who is admittedly tied into actual terror orgs (terming them “resistance”, ala bombings, shootings and murderous jihad) via Brotherhood tied GUPS, SJP, MSA and the like.

SO what else can a rabid Islamist devise to destroy the west? Lots. Now, how many of the readers are familiar with the (late, non-lamented) Islamist prof guru, Edward Said from Columbia U? You know, the one whom Barack HUSSEIN, his Islamist pals and leftist radicals genuflected to, may Said rot in hell? Yes, THAT falsifier of history:

Ibn Warraq’s ambitious book brings together three projects, each worthy of a full-length study: first, a critique of Said’s thought and work focusing on the insidious effects of his magnum opus,Orientalism;[1] second, a defense of the West against the academic assaults that have become commonplace since Said’s book was published; and third, a welcome reappraisal of the eighteenth- through twentieth-century linguists, historians, artists, and writers who studied the East and who are known today as Orientalists, a term Said made pejorative. Ibn Warraq masterfully weaves the three projects together in 556 pages.

The author lays bare Said’s methods of obfuscation, which often use nonsensical and impenetrable prose, insinuation, and outright falsification. Said’s ad hominem attacks against those who criticized his work are recounted, demonstrating that Said was both a metaphorical as well as a literal stone-thrower. And the growing list of Said’s “historical howlers” (obvious inaccuracies and misstatements of fact) unmasks an amateur historian who was either extremely sloppy or just plain dishonest.

ALONG a “Saidian” trajectory, and expecting to fully get away with it, Bazian proceeds apace. Undaunted. He devised a (subliminal) scheme to categorize an already made up out of whole cloth “phobia” into two tiers: latent and manifest! This blogger kids you not.

NOW, using typical Islamist mendacity/lying, that which is fully underpinned by Shariah law, Americans are being conditioned to accept the fact that they are “guilty” of “thought crimes”! 

“Islamophobia” Thought Crimes At Berkeley

What’s an “Islamophobia”-promoting academic to do when there simply aren’t enough hate crimes to sustain the mythical narrative that Muslim-Americans are persecuted for their religion? The Islamophobia Research & Documentation Project (IRDP) at the University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Race & Gender came up with a brilliant idea for this spring’s Fifth Annual International Islamophobia Conference: they invented a thought crime called “latent Islamophobia.”

According to the conferencedescription and “inspired by [the late Columbia professor] Edward Said’s work on Orientalism,” “Islamophobia” can be broken into two categories: latent and manifest:

Latent Islamophobia is founded upon an unquestionable certitude that Muslims trend “towards despotism and away from progress.” They are constructed and “judged in terms of, and in comparison to, the West, so it is always the Other, the conquerable, and the inferior.” Manifest Islamophobia “is what is spoken and acted upon.”

Near Eastern studies lecturer, IRDP director, and conference convener Hatem Bazian supported this blatant effort to condemn thought, as he promised in his opening remarks that this effort would eventually be a “field [and] a distinct area of study” called “Islamophobia studies.”

This is no idle threat. In addition to producing annual UC Berkeley conferences and the Islamophobia Journal, Bazian said IRDP’s plans include:

  • Publishing papers for the Second International Islamophobia Conference to be held in Paris this December.
  • “Down the line, [to] provide funding for graduate students and fellowships” at IRDP.
  • Establish “partnerships with other research institutes, in the U.S. and globally,” to build “a global faculty network.”

The audience—much of which consisted of women wearing hijabs (headscarves)—of sixty to eighty people on the first day, was swallowed by the spacious Booth Auditorium housed in the Berkeley School of Law. In between panels, a bevy of academics and graduate students, many of them speakers, greeted each other and gabbed, while the few attendees outside the fold looked on. Bazian boasted that 6,000 people watched the conference online last year via the live stream and that this year, Duke University would be “carrying our live feed.”

Saeed Khan, a lecturer in history and Near East and Asian studies at Wayne State University, spoke on the second panel about “Islamophobia, the Conservative Movement, and the Creation of the Muslim Menace.” Khan is also a fellow at the Detroit-based Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, which co-commissioned a flawed May, 2013 study alleging “Islamophobia” in the San Francisco Bay Area, of all places, that was co-authored by Bazian. He critiqued what he called “the conventional wisdom among Tea Party conservatives and other Islamophobes” that “Muslims are infiltrating every aspect of American society, particularly education” by quoting a 2008 article on the unconstitutional insertion of Islamic curriculum into American public education written by this author. He then made a nonsensical comparison:

Cinnamon Stillwell, from here in the Bay Area. . . . She definitely takes the line that in spite of the “soft jihad” that is taking place, a soft crusade about the Christianity of the Founding Fathers is perfectly acceptable in public schools in a construct that is supposed to have separation of church and state.

Khan’s alleged concern for separation of church and state would be more convincing were he to apply it to the very real threat outlined in the article in question, not to a nonexistent Christian “soft crusade” that its author did not reference.

He later complained about efforts in “Texas and Florida” to combat the use of biased textbooks in K-12 education, mischaracterizing valid concerns over the whitewashing and falsifying of Islamic history as opposition to inclusion and objectivity:

A world history text is being reviewed to extricate Islam from the curriculum, or at the very least, to try and remove any reference to Islam that would be seen as objective or—in their estimation, the same thing—biased toward Islam.

During the question and answer period, Khan actually complained that the “backlash” against Muslims after the 2013 Boston bombing that was predicted by speakers at last year’s Islamophobia conference never happened. Referencing a Boston Globe article titled, “Inclusive Spirit Reassures Muslims After Bombings,” he concluded:

This portrays Muslims being unnecessarily and unreasonably paranoid. It showcases the magnanimity and largesse of an American society that didn’t cause a backlash.

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

The next panel, which boasted the Orwellian title, “Gender, Sexuality, Class and Colonialism in Transnational Latent and Manifest Islamophobia,” dished out a great heaping of academic jargon from the realms of queer, gender, and women’s studies.

Paola Bacchetta, an associate professor of gender and women’s studies at UC Berkeley, introduced her incomprehensible presentation with the even more perplexing sentence, “Muslims as enemy Others as queerphilia xenophobia.” She was just warming up:

By that, I mean in which their queerphobia is displaced onto the enemy Others, who they now claim are the queerphobic ones. . . . Queers are now shifted to this position which under colonialism belonged to women: that is, queers are constructed as either silent self-hating collaborators with the presumed straight and queerphobic collective enemy Other camp, or imagined as enemy Other’s victims requiring dominant saviors.

Bacchetta included “the Israeli state” in her “neo-colonial” enemies list for its supposed “pink-washing,” claiming that:

[T]he idea that Palestinian queers are being saved by Israel . . . ignores the occupation and the many years of solid work done by Palestinian queers such as Palestinian Queers for BDS [boycott, divestment, sanctions].

It’s hard to imagine that groups like Palestinian Queers for BDS are succeeding in helping their gay compatriots so much as engaging in self-preservation by attacking the preferred enemy, Israel.

Huma Dar, a Ph.D. candidate in South East Asian studies at UC Berkeley, compared “Israeli occupation” to “Indian Occupation” in her jargon-ridden presentation, “Latent and Manifest Islamophobia in Indian Occupied Kashmir: Queerphilic Imperialism and Hindu-homonationalism.” Echoing anti-Israel rhetoric, she denied that Islamism has any relevance to either conflict:

Akin to the Palestinian situation, the struggle for Kashmiri independence is not a religious or theological matter, but a political one of indigenous people’s rights to territory and sovereignty. India, like Israel, has attempted to frame it as a fight against Kashmiri Muslims . . . riding on the coattails of a wave of global Islamophobia.

Dar accused India of engaging in “queerphilic imperialism” by “projecting queerphobia onto the Kashmiri Muslims” and of “pinkwashing the Indian occupation akin to the Israeli occupation.” With all these “occupations” allegedly engaging in “pink-washing,” one would think that gays in the Muslim world were safe, when in fact persecution and capital punishment are common.

The day’s final panel included Zahra Billoo, executive director for the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has been linked by the United States government to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Her presentation, “California Muslim Youth Experiences with Bullying, Harassment and Religious Accommodation in Schools,” was based on CAIR’s own “statewide survey,” yet she was unable to report on any widespread persecution. Despite citing isolated instances of “bullying” in schools, her own data forced her to acknowledge that the “complaints are not coming,” leading her to lament that:

It troubled some of our partners and allies, who said, “well, these bully figures are not as high as we think they should be.”

Instead, they found that “the figures in the LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] community are far higher.” “At the federal level these complaints are handled by the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights,” Billoo added, before launching into a gratuitous tirade against pro-Israel activists concerned for the safety of Jewish students on campus:

And as a side note, this office is used by pro-apartheid Israel activists attempting to silence human rights activists on campus calling attention to that nation state’s racism and violent policies—but that’s a separate conversation.

Apparently, bullying is only a concern when Muslim students are on the receiving end.

It turns out pushing “Islamophobia” trumps addressing myriad human rights challenges afflicting the Muslim world. More on this tomorrow.

WELL aware of the disquieting feelings, the out-sized sensibilities and sensitivities of criticizing “the other”, Islamists (and their helpmates) are free to terrorize Americans and westerners as a whole. 

THIS blogger asserts: hell, no they can’t! The open questions are: when will enough be enough? what say you all?

The Complaint further describes how the SJP conspires and coordinates with the Muslim Student Association (“MSA”), which has a publicly documented history of affiliation with and support of organizations deemed “terror organizations” by the United States Department of State. That they have resorted to intimidation and harassment is evidenced most recently by the fact that the District Attorney of Orange County, California, has indicted eleven students from these groups for inciting and disrupting a speech given by the Israeli Ambassador to the United States at the University of California, Irvine.
