ISIS Is Exactly What the Muslim World Needs Right Now

ISIS Five Year Plan — These boys mean business

 

ISIS/ISIL/IS is exactly what the World needs right now.

They are a wake up call to the Muslim World.

ISIS is the ultimate expression of Islamic values at their most extreme. ISIS is the Spanish Inquisition of Islam. ISIS is a heinous, violent, vile organization that expresses it’s Islamist values at their ultimate Wahhabist/Muslim Brotherhood level of hate, exclusivity and intolerance for all others.

The Sunni Muslim world now has a choice. Embrace ISIS and show the world that Islam truly is a wretched religion of hatred and death OR reject ISIS and show the world that there is hope that Islam can normalize AWAY from the House of Saud’s death cult and it’s various branches in Hamas, al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc.

The Muslim world has a clear choice. Embrace ISIS’ Islam and reject the World community or reject ISIS and join the World community.

Islam or Muslims do not need to embrace Western commercialism as a culture. They do need to step out of the 14th Century and allow for the existence of other peoples and cultures.

This is why we need to allow the Muslim world to deal with ISIS. Stop interfering. If ISIS wins, we can deal with them at that point. Until such time as ISIS wins, the Muslims need to make choices and decide to embrace and support or reject and fight ISIS.

We have coddled these people for too long. We have protected despots, petty monarchs and dictators for far too long.

It is time to step back and let Islam reform itself one way or the other. Either they embrace the Extremist culture and ultimate expression of the Salafist way of Islam or they reform their religion and culture in a positive way that allows for the existence of and cooperation with others.

Islam at this point is a decrepit beast that is hell bent on a path that leads down the road to violent death. ISIS is nothing more than an Islamic Khmer Rouge.

If the Muslims wish for this and embrace it, they are our enemies. If they reject it, they can become something more and better.

However, if the West keeps fighting the battles that Muslims need to fight, they will never know who they are, what they can become and why they should or should not become whatever it is that they are to become.

The only thing that Obama and other Western “leaders” are doing at this moment is giving future generations future excuses to reject the West as interlopers and enemies of Islam. If the West defeats ISIS without letting Islam confront this “face of Islam,” we are simply giving future generations of Muslims an excuse to re-open this Pandora’s box when they too become disillusioned by the corruption and ignorance that prevails in the Middle East and other areas dominated by Islam.

We are simply transferring angst from one generation to the next. That angst needs to be let loose. It needs to be resolved by Muslims within Islam. This is humanity. This is what we do. No reform will come in Islam until ISLAM is allowed to face itself stark naked in the mirrors of the deserts of it’s own cultural soul.

3- A strengthening of the armed forces, and an increase in the number of youth groups; the inspiration of the latter with zeal on the bases of Islamic jihad.

4- A strengthening of the bonds between all Islamic countries, especially the Arab countries, to pave the way for practical and serious consideration of the matter of the departed Caliphate.

17- The utilization of these cafés for teaching illiterates reading and writing; toward this end, the assistance of rising generation of elementary school teachers and students.

18- A campaign against harmful customs, whether economic, moral, or anything else; turning the masses away from these and orienting them in the direction of ways beneficial to them, or educating them in a way  consonant with their best interests.

The Girl in the Cafe

Ray and I were sitting in the City Center Cafe when an attractive young woman sat down at the table next to us.  This was usually a sign that she was interested in talking to us.  It happened a few times before that women would sit near us and wait for an invitation to join our table.  The problem with this was that it nearly always caused an uproar.  Afghan men did not like “their women” talking to “the damn Americans.”
We were careful.  Ray and I furtively searched the cafe for intrusive or fundamentalist looking characters.  Long hair and full beards were usually sure signs of a fundy freak but sometimes the young guys would stare at us.  It seemed sometimes that they were waiting for some pretense to raise a scene.  Seeing no one especially alarming, Ray invited the young girl over to our table.  I didn’t really pay her too much attention.  She and Ray spoke for a while until she rose and bid us good day.  As she departed, she sat a piece of paper in front of Ray, smiled and walked off.

“Another phone number?”
“Yeap!”
“Ray, that’s going to get you killed.”
“I know.  But it’ll be worth it.”

A few days later, the young girl met us at the roof top cafe of our hotel.  Amazingly, she was unescorted.  We drank tea as she related her story to us.
“My Mother and Father are selling me to an old man.  I do not want to go.  I’m educated.  I graduated last year from one of the best schools in Switzerland.  Now, I’m going to be sold to this old man because my parents need money.”
“Well, run away.  Leave.  Can’t you find a way to get back to Switzerland?” Ray asked.
I just stared on incredulously.  It’s not that I’d not heard this story before or that I was surprised but it’s not something to which one grows accustomed.  Parents sell their daughters all the time in Afghanistan.  Still, the injustice of this girls plight angered me.
“To run would bring dishonor to my family.  Besides there is nowhere that I could hide and running would be dangerous.  I’d either be thrown in a dirty prison or killed.”  She answered Ray.
I sipped my tea.
She continued; “I was raised to be obedient.  Still, I never thought that I’d be sold like this to an old man.  I allowed myself to believe that I could have a normal life like my friends in Switzerland.”
Ray stared at her.  He looked upset.
“Do not worry Ray.  There is nothing that you could do.  If you involved yourself, it would be trouble.  Dangerous for you.”
I had heard similar stories while in Afghanistan.  However, I’d never met the story in flesh and blood.  This girl was beautiful.  Even wrapped up in her hijab (scarf) and dressed in the drab black so common to Afghan women, she was stunning.  She was cultured, educated, sophisticated.  None of that mattered.
“Ray, this man is a fundamentalist.  I will spend the rest of my life in a closet.  I will be expected to give him boys.  Once I have a baby, I will be hidden away in the dark for the rest of my life to protect his honor.  No one will see me.  I will have no friends.  I will be comfortable but useless.  This is not life.
I contemplated killing myself but I do not have the strength of those girls.  I can only pray that this old man dies before he can consummate the bargain that my parents have made.”
This is one of the more maddening aspects of Afghanistan.  American politicians such as Laura Bush are constantly yammering away at the improvement in the lives of Afghan women.  I’ve not seen it.  There was an improvement in the lives of women in the three to six months immediately following the “liberation” of Afghanistan.  However, the moment that Sharia was enshrined in the Afghan Constitution the curtain fell on women’s rights in the land of the Pushtoon and Tajiks.  Women’s rights are now a pipe dream in Afghanistan.

Operation Enduring Freedom ~ Down and Dirty

A Down and Dirty History of Operation Enduring Freedom

or

BOHICA ~ Bend Over Here It Comes Again

or

Operation Enduring Freedom ~ War Without End

On 11 September 2001, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center came tumbling down in an immense cloud of smoke.  Osama bin Laden hiding in his base camp in the mountains of Eastern Afghanistan had planned one of the most audacious attacks in American history.  Two commercial aircraft flew into the World Trade Center buildings, one flew into the Pentagon and, finally, a final hi-jacked commercial airliner went down in a field in Pennsylvania after the passengers onboard regained control of their 747 from the Arab terrorists.

A few months later, American CIA and US Army Special Forces, on the orders of George W. Bush, invaded Afghanistan.  The US CIA and Special Forces teams linked up with Rashid Doostum and other commanders of the Northern Alliance.  They used US Military technology to bombard the Taliban and their mercenary Pushtoon allies back to Southern Afghanistan finally defeating the Taliban in Qandahar.

The invasion of Afghanistan was a “good war.”  We were making the world safe for democracy.  We were bringing humanity, women’s right and freedom to the people of Afghanistan.  We were liberators.  This was no war on Islam or the religious principles or culture of Afghanistan and it’s people.  America was leading the world in the fight against a new darkness.  The old propaganda was pulled out of the dust bins of history.  Communism and fascism were replaced by Islamic extremism.  This was a Global War on Terror.  It was a war that Don Rumsfield and Dick Cheney said might last forever.  It was an endless war that would bring light and democracy to the dark, unwashed masses of the Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

What most of the US Public weren’t told was that many of the Pushtoon commanders who fought with the Taliban up to 2001 were bribed into switching sides.  Afghan Warlords have always been quick to abandon a losing cause.  During the Mujahideen Wars that followed the 1988 Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, Warlords such as Birhanuddin Rabbani, Rashid Doostum and Hektmetyar Gulbuddin switched sides so often that American Intelligence officials following the war could not keep up with who was on whose side.  After being targeted by massive bombing runs by US Military Aircraft guided by US Special Forces soldiers, the North fell swiftly.   These Warlords were not willing to fight against aircraft from which they had no defenses.  With the writing on the wall, Warlords who had jumped to the Taliban cause a few years earlier accepted massive bribes to join the Coalition cause.

These were the same Warlords who believed in the message of the Taliban.  The burqa, sharia, harsh punishments for petty crimes, honor killings, tribalism were the calling cards of these men.  These men were no different than Mullah Omar who founded the Taliban movement.  Later, Barack Obama would re-define these men as “moderate Taliban.”  The only difference between these Warlords and the minions of Mullah Omar were a willingness to take million dollar bribes and to smile at Western cameras.  These same men fought alongside the Taliban in the dark of night while treating with us in the light of day.

The plan that got us into bed with these Warlords was initially designated  Operation Infinite Justice.  The “Muslim street” was outraged again.  Infinite justice could only be provided by Allah.  The idea of the West providing infinite justice in the Muslim world was another manifestation of the crusader ethos that so offended the Muslim mind.  Infinite justice was only possible with Allah.  George Bush, whose crusader remarks earlier in the year had caused protests throughout the Muslim World, caved to Muslim sentiment.  Ironically, the crusades were a reaction to Islamic Imperialism brought on by the original caliphates wars of conquest against the West.  Now, Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda were fighting to bring about a New Caliphate resulting in a similar military backlash from the West.  Revisionist history and political correctness resulted in the invasion of Afghanistan being re-designated Operation Enduring Freedom.

Enduring Freedom was an immediate tactical success.  US and Coalition forces rolled up the taliban within a few months.  However, it’s strategic success was short lived.   President Bush, fearing American reaction to flag draped caskets on the evening news, tried to outsource the war to the Afghans and failed to provide covering forces to block the escape of al Qaeda and Taliban leadership.  Bin Laden and Mullah Omar trotted out of Afghanistan and into mountains of Pakistan on horseback with the aid of the Musharraf’s Inter Services Intelligence.  Rumors at the time had bin Laden slipping into the wild and unruly autonomous Northwest Frontier Province minutes ahead of US Special Forces.  The border problem was compounded by the fact that many of the Taliban were Pakistani soldiers in mufti.  The Pakistan Army refused to fire on fleeing taliban soldiers and leadership.  The Paki Mullah Generals had beefed up Taliban forces in the years before 9-11 with it’s own soldiers.   Pakistani soldiers feared firing on fleeing Taliban as they may well have been killing brothers or cousins.  Apparently, the only person in the world who didn’t know this was George Bush.

By the time I arrived in Bagram in November of 2003, the Taliban had been defeated and were fighting a low level insurgency that would wax and wane over the next decade.  American and World resolve to see through the mission of building democracy was lukewarm despite the glorious rhetoric of the Bush administration.   Democracy, women’s rights and equality for ethnic and religious minorities would never get off the ground.  By November of 2003, Islamic Law (aka Sharia) would be enshrined into Afghan constitutional law.  The Women and Minorities of Afghanistan became victims of the great American military tradition of BOHICA — bend over here it comes again.

George and Laura Bush talked a good game concerning Human Rights.  Barack and Michelle Obama gave equal lip service to these ideas.  As soon as Sharia was voted into the Afghan Constitution, women and minority rights became a lost cause.  In the end, we traded lofty goals and humanity for support from the same warlords who had only months earlier fought with the Taliban.  Operation Enduring Freedom would ultimately become Operation Epic Failure.

Charlie Hebdo is my Hero!

Charlie Hebdo did it.  He did what every Free Speech loving person across the world should be doing.  He flung the middle finger at the rioters and murderers who are trying to rob the Free World of it’s Liberty.

Hebdo published a series of cartoons basically ridiculing Mohommad and Islam just days after Muslims started behaving like mindless Stone Age monkeys in the streets of every major and many minor cities across the globe.

Some folks will whine that he is endangering the public.

That’s nonsense.  He’s endangering no one.  The Governments of the World who are allowing Muslims to behave like animals are to blame.  The Muslim Governments of the World who are NOT prosecuting the animals rioting in the streets and murdering non-Muslims are to blame.  The Muslim Officials who are persecuting non-Muslims and Muslims alike for blasphemy are to blame.

A cartoon is a cartoon.  If you don’t like it, don’t look at it.  A movie is a movie.  No one is forcing Muslims to view that or any movie.   If you do not like these things, ignore them.  If you do not wish to see offensive items, close your eyes and plug your ears.

Muslims have no right to tell the rest of the World how to think.  They have no right to censor me or you or anyone else.

It’s bad enough that they kill each other in their own lands with impunity.  It’s bad enough that they murder and persecute and oppress minorities in their own countries.

What are we if we allow them to persecute, oppress and murder us in our own lands.

If Muslims wish to live under Sharia law, let them live in Iran or Saudi Arabia or Sharjah

Sharia should never be allowed to expand into Western Nations.  That would be a TRUE BLASPHEMY!

Palestinian Democracy!

 

 

The Palestinian newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida reported last week that six people have been arrested in the West Bank and one of them sentenced to a month in prison for “desecrating the holiness of the month of Ramadan by eating in public during daytime.” “Our streets are Islamic,” said the chairman of the Palestinian sharia court, and legislation should be enacted to “severely punish” anyone who eats publicly during the Muslim holy month.

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam, and under Islamic law, eating and drinking, smoking, and sexual relations are prohibited from sunrise until sunset during that month. According to the Times of Israel, article 274 of the Palestinian penal code states that citizens who violate Ramadan by eating or smoking in public can be punished by a month in prison or a fine of 15 Jordanian dinars – about 21 U.S. dollars.

*************************************************************

Islamic Sharia law is strongly supported by the affluent few. It persecutes the poorest and most vulnerable among those living under the tyranny and terror of Sharia Law. In most countries with Sharia Law the Jews and Christians have been killed or left long ago. The poor are the ones to be flogged, amputated, crucified now days. The vast majority of the people who live under Sharia Law are people deemed “dispensable,” and to whom human rights do NOT exist. The vast majority of people living under the terror and tyranny of Sharia Law have no basic human rights. The people are subjected to the Sharia atrocities. The masses under Sharia Law have NO CHOICE or chance to a secular trial, where they could be imprisoned, instead of having hands of feet amputated. The vast majority will be quickly flogged, amputated, or executed.

The existence of Sharia Islamic law, by its very nature, means the negation of any other mode of dispensing justice to all be the very affluent few. When faced with amputation; no human being, no matter how devout, will ever choose amputation over imprisonment! We should be aware of the REALITY that amputation is the punishment of petty thieves. In societies under Sharia Islamic law, the REALITY is that big time thieves, are rewarded. Who would not choose the prison term rather than the permanent damage caused by amputation? The very affluent elite may get a choice, but NO Christian, or any of the masses under the terror and tyranny of Sharia Islamic law, will get the choice. It is AMPUTATION of Hand, Foot, or Head.

Under Sharia law it is absolutely impossible for women to hope for secular family law existing side by side with Islamic religious law. It is folly to think that under Sharia law that a woman can hope for a divorce or a custody case to be reviewed before a secular court. The essence of Islamic Sharia is to give men the right to control women and deprive them from the freedom to choose as can be seen from the obsession of fundamentalists with women’s dress and behavior. Under Sharia law women’s private lives is what the religious laws are uncompromisingly eager to control. Subjecting women to Islamic Sharia laws by so-called personal status law, or family law, allows men to completely dominate them. We should also remember that Sharia-based family law, approves and sanctions slavery. Any Sharia law state where men slaves were able to get access to civil courts, to be set free, still keeps it impossible for women slaves. Sharia law essentially makes it impossible for a female slave to obtain freedom without the consent of her owner.

A great example of Muslim characteristic hypocrisy may be seen in the Islamic states which allowed the so called binary legal system. In these states Islamic Sharia law would coexist side by side with secular law. The Islamic Sharia law promoters are notorious for fanatically assassinating their foes, and abusing women. Sharia law promoters muzzle, intimidate, and assassinate journalists and intellectuals. The Sharia law promoters establish death Fatwas. That is how Sharia law promoters deal with any form of literary criticism. I will likely get several death Fatwas for exposing the truth in this little article. But my God is bigger than their god.

******************************************************************

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has launched a crackdown on people eating in public during the Muslim fast month of Ramadan, reports Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). Although Hamas-run Gaza is typically seen as a hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism, the PA-controlled West Bank is at the center of this harsh enforcement of Sharia law.

The cleric in charge of the PA’s Supreme Court of Sharia Law recently declared that the government should enact legislation prohibiting eating in public during Ramadan.

“Our streets are Islamic,” Sheikh Yusuf Ida’is said. “Any person caught committing this sin in public during Ramadan has to be imprisoned until the end of Ramadan, as an example to others” and in deference to Muslims’ feelings. He also said that the legislation should apply to non-Muslims and those incapable of fasting, a severe restriction on Christians in the West Bank, who represent about 10 percent of the population.

According to PA official newspaper al-Hayat al-Jadida, six people have been arrested since Ramadan started July 19. A court in Jericho, a formerly liberal town that even hosted casinos for Israelis, sentenced one man to a month in prison for breaking the fast publicly.

******************************************************************

I know folks who support Palestine in their fight against Israel.  These persons belong to groups that are named “Palestinian Democracy” and “People for a Democratic Palestine.”  These folks are fools.  Complete and utter fools.

What part of Sharia law in the Constitution of Palestine do these tools not understand?  What behavior amongst the Palestinian Leadership seems Democratic to these tools?

These folks remind me of the Useful Idiots of Stalin lore.  They allow themselves to be talked into believing anything because of their hatred for Israel or America or because Ireland was put through horrors by England and the West did not come to their aid.  Now they see Palestinian Democracy as a reasonable cause to support.

The problem is that Democracy in Palestine is a chimera.  It’s a lie.  It’s nonsense.  It will never happen.

You can’t tell that to these fools, though.

Support for Palestine is de facto support for another despotic sharia driven Islamic dictatorship.

I’d love to see the people of Palestine free and living in their own State.  I can not, however, support the creation of another Sharia Despotism.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Islamic Democracy!

Muslim immigrants in Palma de Mallorca, the capital of the Balearic Islands in Spain, have succeeded in forcing the expulsion of all female parking meter enforcement officers from a city neighborhood that is home to a growing Muslim population.

The move reflects the increasing assertiveness of Spain’s Muslim community, which in recent years, has sought to impose its will over Spanish society on a variety of issues deemed offensive to Islam.

Female parking enforcement officers patrolling the streets near a mosque situated on the Plaza de Pere Garau in downtown Palma have been subjected to a systematic campaign of harassment and humiliation by Muslims who insist that only male officers should be allowed to work in the area.

In recent weeks the tensions have escalated to the point where female parking officers have been verbally abused and spit upon by Muslim immigrants seeking to force the women out of the neighborhood.

Islamic Democracy is a misnomer.  It’s a contradiction in terms.  These people should not be allowed to live in a Democratic Nation.  Anyone who harbors these beliefs and ideologies should be deported.  If you wish to live under Sharia, move to Iran or Saudi Arabia.  Leave the West alone.  Leave.  Go.  Get out.  You are not welcome here.

It’s About Sharia! It’s About Submission to Allah…

The former speaker of the House gets the war on terror. For one thing, he refuses to call it the “war on terror,” which should be the entry-level requirement for any politician who wants to influence how we wage it. Gingrich grasps that there is an enemy here and that it is a mortal threat to freedom. He knows that if we are to remain a free people, it is an enemy we must defeat. That enemy is Islamism, and its operatives — whether they come as terrorists or stealth saboteurs — are the purveyors of sharia, Islam’s authoritarian legal and political system.

This being the Era of the Reset Button, Gingrich is going about the long-overdue business of resetting our understanding of the civilizational jihad that has been waged against the United States for some 31 years. It is the jihad begun when Islamists overran the American embassy in Tehran, heralding a revolutionary regime that remains the No. 1 U.S. security challenge in the Middle East, as Gingrich argued Thursday in a provocative speech at the American Enterprise Institute.

The single purpose of this jihad is the imposition of sharia. On that score, Gingrich made two points of surpassing importance. First, some Islamists employ mass-murder attacks while others prefer a gradual march through our institutions — our legal, political, academic, and financial systems, as well as our broader culture; the goal of both, though, is the same. The stealth Islamists occasionally feign outrage at the terrorists, but their quarrel is over methodology and pace. Both camps covet the same outcome.

Second, that outcome is the death of freedom. In Islamist ideology, sharia is deemed to be the necessary precondition for Islamicizing a society — for Islam is not merely a religious doctrine, but a comprehensive socio-economic and political system. As the former speaker elaborated, sharia embodies principles and punishments that are abhorrent to Western values. Indeed, its foundational premise is anti-American, holding that we are not free people at liberty to govern ourselves irrespective of any theocratic code, that people are instead beholden to the Islamic state, which is divinely enjoined to impose Allah’s laws.

Sharia, moreover, is anti-equality. It subjugates women and brutally punishes transgressors, particularly homosexuals and apostates. While our law forbids cruel and unusual punishments, Gingrich observed that the brutality in sharia sanctions is not gratuitous, but intentional: It is meant to enforce Allah’s will by striking example.

On this last point, Gingrich offered a salient insight, one well worth internalizing in the Sun Tzu sense of knowing one’s enemy. Islamists, violent or not, have very good reasons for the wanting to destroy the West. Those reasons are not crazy or wanton — and they have nothing to do with Gitmo, Israel, cartoons, or any other excuse we conjure to explain the savagery away. Islamists devoutly believe, based on a well-founded interpretation of Islamic doctrine, that they have been commanded by Allah to kill, convert, or subdue all who do not adhere to sharia — because they regard Allah as their only master (“There is no God but Allah”). It is thus entirely rational (albeit frightening to us) that they accept the scriptural instruction that the very existence of those who resist sharia is offensive to Allah, and that a powerful example must be made of those resisters in order to induce the submission of all — “submission” being the meaning of Islam.

It makes no sense to dismiss our enemies as lunatics just because “secular socialist” elites, as Gingrich called them, cannot imagine a fervor that stems from religious devotion. We ought to respect our enemies, he said. Not “respect” in Obama-speak, which translates as “appease,” but in the sense of taking them seriously, understanding that they are absolutely determined to win, and realizing that they are implacable. There is no “moderate” sharia devotee, for sharia is not moderate. Gingrich noted that in response to global outcry against the prospect of death by stoning for an Iranian woman, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, convicted of adultery, the mullahs’ great concession appears to be that she will be hanged instead. Islamism is not a movement to be engaged, it is an enemy to be defeated.

And it has been since Mohammad came slobbering and raving out of his cave.

There are moderate Muslims. There are Muslims who take their religion with a glass of ice cold beer. There are Muslims who believe that they can co-exist. There are Muslims who were simply born Muslim and know not much more about it than that their parents were Muslim.

Not all Muslims care to spread their religion.

That! We must not forget.

However, there are millions of Muslims who believe that Allah commands them to spread their religion. Through their life path as well as through teaching, witnessing and preaching and, yes, by there are many millions of Muslims who wholeheartedly believe in conversion (reversion) by the sword.

The problem with Islam and Muslims is that it is an enormously pressurised world. Peer pressure is a real danger. I have seen peer pressure turn a room full of irreligious Muslims who drink and cavort and chase girls all through the night and weekend into a motley crue of raving fundamentalists simply by the entrance of one religious individual.

Read their histories. Once Jihad is called, no one will dare denounce it for fear of being “unIslamic.” Read of the Afghan Constitutional Convention and how their Constitution came to include Sharia and the Qu’ran. It was not a forgone conclusion. It entered the room with a Mullah who publicly dared the assembly to exclude it by asking who in the assembly would stand against Sharia and the Qu’ran.

No one dared do so.

Not even Rashid Doostom. Doostum, who is one of the most secular Afghani of the age. Doostum who is infamous for his riotous drinking and womanizing. Dostum who hated the taliban and has publicly stated that he doesn’t see the need for women to cover themselves nor the reason that they should not attend university or be shut in the home.

This man mounted on horse back and did battle against the Taliban alongside US Special Forces and stood in battle and taunted the Talib Commanders.

This man was too fearful to denounce the inclusion of Islam, the Qu’ran and Sharia law in the Afghan Constitution.

To be seen as an infidel, one who is against Islam, in the lands occupied by Islam is to write your own death warrant. From the highest in society to the lowest.

Ask Malalai Joya. Read of her life and mission.

There are many Muslims who wish to live under a secular government and to live out their religion in private.

The problem is the Mullahs and those who use Islam as a means to power.

Our war is with the Mullahs. It’s with the Ayatollahs.

Even then, not all Mullahs wish to live out their lives as Government agents. Look to the Sufis who believe that religion is a private matter and that all religious leaders should stay out of politics.

Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran are the enemies of freedom.

Rid ourselves of them and the tide turns.

I’ll state again. Not all Muslims and not all of Islam is the enemy. Just as I believe that not all Christians desire to force their religion on all and sundry. I believe the same of Muslims.

There are key elements.

1. Wahhabism and Saudi Arabia

2. Iranian Revolutionary Islam

Take out those two and the battle is won.

Hezbollah, the Quds force and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard are the major exporters of Iranian Shi’a War on the West.

Wahhabism is the father of all Sunni terror lords and murderers. The Taliban and the Deobandi of Central Asia, Pakistan and India are all end points that can be traced to the Nejd of Saudi Arabia and their evil cult of al Wahhab. The Muslim Brotherhood is the father of all Sunni Terrorist Organizations. The MB were followers of al Wahhab and his desert madness.

Yet, we claim that Saudi Arabia is our ally.

And Iran is defended in the West by fools. Fools who side with Hizbollah against Lebanon and Israel. Fools who support Hamas.

Fools who support a Wahhabi Shrine mere feet away from Ground Zero.

Islamic Sharia and the Rights of Muslim Women

After being kidnapped at the age of 16 by a group of thugs and enduring a year of rapes and beatings, Assiya Rafiq was delivered to the police and thought her problems were over.

Then, she said, four police officers took turns raping her.

The next step for Assiya was obvious: She should commit suicide. That’s the customary escape in rural Pakistan for a raped woman, as the only way to cleanse the disgrace to her entire family.

Instead, Assiya summoned the unimaginable courage to go public and fight back. She is seeking to prosecute both her kidnappers and the police, despite threats against her and her younger sisters. This is a kid who left me awed and biting my lip; this isn’t a tale of victimization but of valor, empowerment and uncommon heroism.

“I decided to prosecute because I don’t want the same thing to happen to anybody else,” she said firmly.

Assiya’s case offers a window into the quotidian corruption and injustice endured by impoverished Pakistanis — leading some to turn to militant Islam.

“When I treat a rape victim, I always advise her not to go to the police,” said Dr. Shershah Syed, the president of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Pakistan. “Because if she does, the police might just rape her again.”

Yet Assiya is also a sign that change is coming. She says she was inspired by Mukhtar Mai, a young woman from this remote village of Meerwala who was gang raped in 2002 on the orders of a village council. Mukhtar prosecuted her attackers and used the compensation money to start a school.

Mukhtar is my hero. Many Times readers who followed her story in past columns of mine have sent her donations through a fund at Mercy Corps, at www.mercycorps.org, and Mukhtar has used the money to open schools, a legal aid program, an ambulance service, a women’s shelter, a telephone hotline — and to help Assiya fight her legal case.

The United States has stood aloof from the ubiquitous injustices in Pakistan, and that’s one reason for cynicism about America here. I’m hoping the Obama administration will make clear that Americans stand shoulder to shoulder with heroines like Mukhtar and Assiya, and with an emerging civil society struggling for law and social justice.

Hey Ahmadinejad! The People of Iran want to know; “Where’s My Vote?”

To the United Nations:

Ban Sharia.  Purge this barbaric intellectual and emotional plague from the face of the Earth.  Sharia is nothing more than a throw back to an era of superstition and irrationality.  The world no longer needs this brutal set of laws.  If it was ever needed in the first place.

Take the power away from the despot and place it in the hands of the people.  The People should not fear their Governments.  Governments should fear the people.

The Stoning of Soraya M.

Iran is a repressive regime.  They showed that much with their latest outburst of totalitarianism after the Presidential election.  Sharia is the foundation of that repression.  It’s the foundation of oppression.  Sharia is a medieval and despicable set of laws laid down by  ruthless dictators starting with the first Islamic ruler and continuing through to the present where only a few throwback countries still see usefulness in the total control of the people.  Sharia is anathema to a modern and democratic world.

What should the world do about it?

https://i1.wp.com/www.pi-news.net/wp/uploads/2008/01/stonings.jpgI think the people of the world should use the United Nations to ban Sharia.  Use the World Court to place Sharia on the same shelf as Nazism, Apartheid and Slavery.  Ban it’s use and label it a crime against humanity.

The stoning of Soraya Manutchehri is but one example of countless thousands.  One example of the enslavement and murder of millions across the world who have been subject to the evil of Sharia.

Witness the brutality of the story of this woman’s treatment under Sharia and you are witness to the story and possibility or eventuality of millions of women across the Middle East and anywhere else that Sharia is the law of the land.

In the mid-1980s, an Iranian-born, France-based journalist named Freidoune Sahebjam was traveling in his native land, assessing the impact of the Iranian Revolution, when he came upon a rural mountain village and learned of a ghastly crime. It had been committed by an entire community against a local woman. It was a crime that indicted a nation, a movement, and a religiously inspired ideology.

The victim was Soraya Manutchehri, a 35-year-old mother of seven who, in her own prophetic words, had become “an inconvenient wife.” Bartered away in an arranged marriage at 13 to a petty criminal named Ghorban-Ali, who was 20 years old at the time, Soraya bore nine children over the next two decades, enduring two stillborn births and regular beatings from her husband, along with his insults, his consorting with prostitutes, and his campaign to turn her two oldest sons against her.
On August 15, 1986, with the complicity of a local mullah who had been imprisoned for child molesting under the Shah, Ghorban-Ali showed himself to be more than a garden variety sociopath and town bully; he was a sadistic monster, and Islamic fundamentalism was his enabler, his aider, his abettor.
In the anarchic days of the Iranian Revolution, Ghorban-Ali had found work as a prison guard in a neighboring town. There, he met a 14-year-old girl whom he wanted to marry. Polygamy was encouraged in Ayatollah Khomeini’s Iran, but Ghorban-Ali didn’t want to support two families, and did not desire to return his wife’s dowry. How to rid himself of his “old” wife? That was the easy part. Accuse her of infidelity. No matter that her husband had not actually seen anything untoward, or that Soraya was completely innocent, or that her husband’s cynical accusations were only backed up by his cousin, who as it turned out had been coerced into concurring with the vaguest of accusations: a smile here, a brushed hand there.
What court of law would find someone guilty on such flimsy evidence? A “sharia” court is the answer. And so Soraya was convicted. The sentence was death-death by stoning.
That was the story relayed to Freidoune Sahebjam by Soraya’s brave aunt, Zahra Khanum. His riveting and spare account became an international best-seller. Critics compared “The Stoning of Soraya M.” to Kafka, but actually nothing in the western canon of literature is comparable to the inadvertent self-parody — the simple lunacy — of a system of law that maintains that if a man is accused of infidelity by his wife, she must prove his guilt, but if a woman is accused, she must prove her innocence. Thus, in a single sentence, is a belief system codified. It is a system that rejects modernity, justice, equality and rationality — and treats female sexuality as a vice. Apparently, you can get away with this kind of madness in much of the world by simply inciting crowds to chant, “God is Great,” while you throw the stones.
It’s a fitting image, rock-throwing…fitting for the Stone Age, that is. Such show trials pay no heed to the natural rights we presume to be universal in a 21st century society: The right to be present at your own trial, to testify in your own defense, to cross-examine the witnesses against you, to be represented by counsel, to have an impartial arbiter of fact, to appeal the judgment to higher courts. None of these were present in rural Iran in the drunken days of “the Islamic Revolution.” For women and girls in Iran and in many other parts of the globe they are not present today.
The media loves to go on and on about Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.  Where is their courage when it comes to confronting the horrors of Sharia?  They have none.  Because to speak out against Sharia is to risk death at the hands of the barbaric people who uphold this brutal creed.  The people who support Sharia are one and the same with the people who support suicide bombers.  These are the people who send out rape squads to victimize women and send them to their honorable deaths with bombs strapped to their waists against the infidel.  To die with honor in this instance is to take out a busload of women, children and elderly innocents.  This is the honor that Sharia brings to it’s victims.
Sharia is naught but brutality.  Sharia is not justice.  Sharia is power in the hands of the Mullahs.  It is power in the hands of dictators and evil men.  There is not one instance of benevolent use of Sharia.  Sharia is naught but a throwback patriarchal system where a mans word us worth twice that of a woman.  Where women have equal rights to be victiimized and cast aside like so much refuse.
That the world does not speak out against this is a shame to all of humanity.  All of humanity.
