Hizballah Fascists

You saw it on LGF, worth looking at again:

Hizbollah militants raise their arms in salute of assassinated Hezbollah top commander Imad Mughniyeh during a memorial service in his home village of Tair Debba, south Lebanon, Sunday, Feb. 17, 2008. (AP Photo/Tara Todras-Whitehill)

They’re not the only guys who use that kind of salute in the region. It attests to the direct influence of European Fascism on some of the trappings that these area groups have taken on. Fertile ground.

Islamic Genocide, past & present

Islamic Genocide, past & present

The world was shocked at the Islamic Hitler: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calling for certain nations to be “wiped off” (2005), however, we should remember the connection to past & present, genocide as an intergral part of radical Islam

The Islamic Genocide plan!

During 1894-1923 the Ottoman Empire conducted a policy of Genocide of the Christian population living within its extensive territory. The Sultan, Abdul Hamid, first put forth an official governmental policy of genocide against the Armenians of the Ottoman Empire in 1894. , Systematic massacres took place in 1894-1896 when Abdul savagely killed 300,000 Armenians throughout the provinces. Massacres recurred, and in 1909 government troops killed, in the towns of Adana alone, over 20,000 Christian Armenians.

Taking A Stand Against Genocide
by Robert Spencer

On February 9, U.S. Representative Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) will deliver the keynote address at a reception marking the beginning of a new campaign against genocide. The David Horowitz Freedom Center has developed a Declaration Against Genocide, and is inviting campus groups around the country to endorse it, and decisively repudiate the genocidal statements made by Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hizballah’s Hassan Nasrallah, and others.

The Declaration notes that Islamic jihadists in the Middle East have been speaking boldly about their plans to initiate a new genocide against the Jews, and that Sudanese and other Africans have been victims of a slow-motion genocide motivated by much the same jihadist ideology. The Declaration also calls on campus groups to affirm ‘the freedom of the individual conscience and the right to change religions or have no religion at all; the equal dignity of men and women; and the right of all people to live free from violence, intimidation and coercion.’
The genocidal aspect of today’s global Islamic jihad has received scant attention from the media or from human rights activists, despite the candor with which Islamic leaders have spoken about it. Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad has declared that Israel’s end is near: ‘There is no doubt that the new wave [of attacks] in Palestine will soon wipe off this disgraceful blot [Israel] from the face of the Islamic world.’ He harbors similar dreams for America: ‘The accomplishment of a world without America and Israel is both possible and feasible.’

The Islamic Genocide Plan

http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=25704

The Islamic Genocide Plan
By FrontPage Magazine
FrontPageMagazine.com December 1, 2006
The following words and pictures prove that radical Muslims have long dreamed, plotted, and demonstrated in favor of the annihilation of Israel and all the Jews in the world. Unfortunately, words and demonstrations are not where they are willing to stop. — The Editors
Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, President of Iran

  • “The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of a war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land.”
  • “As the Imam [Ayatollah Khomeini] said, Israel must be wiped off the map.’
  • ‘… the annihilation of the Zionist regime will come.’
  • “The Islamic umma (community) will not allow its historic enemy [Israel] to live in its heartland.”
  • “Any leaders in the Islamic umma who recognize Israel face the wrath of their own people.”
  • “There is no doubt that the new wave [of attacks] in Palestine will soon wipe off this disgraceful blot [Israel] from the face of the Islamic world.”
  • ‘The creation of the occupying regime in [Israel] is a strong action by the ruling arrogant [American imperialist] world order against the world of Islam. There continues a historic war between the World Arrogance and the Islamic world, the roots of which go back hundreds of years ago. … The World Arrogance turned the Zionist regime occupying Jerusalem into a staging-ground to dominate the Islamic world. This occupying country is in reality the staging-ground of the World Arrogance in the heart of the Islamic world. They have created a base, from where they can expand their rule over the entire Islamic world; it has no other purpose other than this.’
  • ‘The war that is presently going on in Palestine is the frontline of the war of destiny between the Islamic world and the World Arrogance, which will determine the outcome of hundreds of years [of war] in Palestine.’
  • ‘Our dear Imam [Ayatollah Khomeini] ordered that the occupying regime in Jerusalem be wiped off the face of the earth. This was a very wise statement. The issue of Palestine is not one which we could compromise on. ‘ This would mean the defeat of the Islamic world.’
  • ‘The issue in Palestine is by no means finished. The Palestinian issue will only be resolved when all of Palestine comes under stringent Palestinian rule.’
  • ‘I am hopeful that just as the Palestinian nation continued its struggle for the past ten years, they will continue to keep their awareness and vigilance. This period is going to be short-lived. If we put it behind us successfully, god willing, it will pave the way for the destruction and the downfall of the Zionist regime.’
  • Ahmadinejad has called Israel a “tumor” that should be “wiped off the map” or moved out of the Middle East, perhaps to Alaska.
  • “Zionists have launched their own destruction by attacking Lebanon.” (July 23, 2006)
  • “Their [Israelis’] methods resemble Hitler’s. When Hitler wanted to launch an attack, he came up with a pretext. Zionists say they are Hitler’s victims, but they have the same nature as Hitler.”
  • “The Zionist regime is counterfeit and illegitimate and cannot survive. … The big powers have created this fraud regime and allowed it to commit all kind of crimes to guarantee their interests.”
  • “They [the Jews] have no boundaries, limits, or taboos when it comes to killing human beings. Who are they? Where did they come from? Are they human beings? ‘They are like cattle, nay, more misguided.’ A bunch of bloodthirsty barbarians. Next to them, all the criminals of the world seem righteous.”
  • “When I see the behavior of America, England, and their other accomplices in recent days, I get the impression that they are preparing even greater crimes. I warn them: Know that the fire of the wrath of the peoples is about to erupt and overflow. If you do not put an end to your crimes, know that the ocean of the peoples will soon rage. When the peoples begin to move, they will drag everybody to the defendant’s bench, and will remove them from the throne of power.”
  • “Today, the Iranian people is the owner of nuclear technology. Those who want to talk with our people should know what people they are talking to. If some believe they can keep talking to the Iranian people in the language of threats and aggressiveness, they should know that they are making a bitter mistake. If they have not realized this by now, they soon will, but then it will be too late. Then they will realize that they are facing a vigilant, proud people.”

“Today, Hizbullah in Lebanon is the standard-bearer of the resistance of all the monotheistic peoples, of the seekers of justice, and of the free people. Hassan Nasrallah is shouting the loud cry of the vigilant human consciences. Today, Hizbullah stands tall as the representative of all the peoples, all the vigilant consciences, all the monotheistic people, all the seekers of justice, and all free people of the world, against the rule of hegemony. Until now, with the help of Allah, [Hizbullah] is winning, and, Allah willing, it will reach the ultimate victory in the near future.”
Abu Maamun, a senior leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in Jenin

“I think and I have no doubt that they have the ability to target Tel Aviv and that the question when to do so depends on the situation on the ground. As long as the hero [Hezbollah leader Hassan] Nasrallah will manage to lead an equal fight with Israel it will not target Tel Aviv and will leave this to the next round in a few months. We hope he will hit Tel Aviv very soon, but as militants of a resistance organization, we know that there are priorities, considerations and calculations [regarding] when to make a strategic decision. Our dream is to see the Zionists in the center of occupied Palestine under rocket attack ‘ a thing they have not felt in all the Arab-Israel conflict. … [T]his is the dream of the great majority of our people. We pray that this will happen, and we believe that such a great rocket revolution will mark the beginning of a new era in the region and will break the psychological wall in the idea that Israel is invincible.” (August 3, 2006)

The Charter of Hamas (1988)

The Charter of Hamas, puts forth “The Slogan of the Hamas,” which reads as follows: “Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Qur’an its Constitution, Jihad its path, and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief.” The Charter says that jihad, or holy war, “becomes an individual duty binding on every Muslim man and woman; a woman must go out and fight the enemy even without her husband’s authorization, and a slave without his masters’ permission.”
The Hamas Charter explicitly abjures negotiated settlements as mechanisms for peaceful coexistence: “There is no other solution for the Palestinian problem other than jihad. All the initiatives and international conferences are a waste of time and a futile game.” According to the Charter, those against whom jihad is to be directed are the Jews. “The Nazism of the Jews,” it says, “does not skip women and children, it scares everyone. They make war against people’s livelihood, plunder their moneys and threaten their honor.” Hamas seeks to fulfill the Qur’anic scripture which reads: “The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!”

The Hamas Charter further states: ‘Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it’; ‘The day the enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem. In the face of the Jews’ usurpation, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised’; ‘Ranks will close, fighters joining other fighters, and masses everywhere in the Islamic world will come forward in response to the call of duty, loudly proclaiming: ‘Hail to Jihad!’. This cry will reach the heavens and will go on being resounded until liberation is achieved, the invaders vanquished and Allah’s victory comes about.’

Hassan Nasrallah, Leader of Hezbollah

  • “The limit of our bombardment will not remain Haifa, regardless of the enemy’s response.” (July 26, 2006)

‘Brothers and sisters, throughout the entire Arab-Israeli conflict — when were two million Israelis forced to become displaced, or to stay in bomb shelters for more than 18 days? This figure will grow as we extend the phase of ‘beyond Haifa’ ‘ because the bombing of Afula and its military base was [only] the beginning of this phase. There are many cities in the center [of Israel] which will be targeted in the phase of ‘beyond Haifa,’ if this barbaric aggression against our land, people, and villages continues.’ (July 29, 2006)

  • “When the people of this tyrannical state [Israel] loses its faith in its mythical army, it is the beginning of the end of this entity ‘ because Israel is a country that was established for the sake of an army, and the army in Israel does not belong to the state. Once they sense that this army has become helpless, weak, defeated, humiliated, and a failure, the question will definitely become one of life or death.” (July 29, 2006)
  • “Anyone who reads the Koran and the holy writings of the monotheistic religions sees what they did to the prophets, and what acts of madness and slaughter the Jews carried out throughout history … Anyone who reads these texts cannot think of co-existence with them, of peace with them, or about accepting their presence, not only in Palestine of 1948 but even in a small village in Palestine, because they are a cancer which is liable to spread again at any moment.”
  • “[I]f they [the Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.”
  • “[T]hey [the Jews] are a cancer which is liable to spread again at any moment.”
  • “There is no solution to the conflict in this region except with the disappearance of Israel.”
  • “One of the central reasons for creating Hizbullah was to challenge the Zionist program in the region. Hizbullah still preserves this principle, and when an Egyptian journalist visited me after the liberation and asked me if the destruction of Israel and the liberation of Palestine and Jerusalem were Hizbullah’s goal, I replied: ‘That is the principal objective of Hizbullah, and it is no less sacred than our [ultimate] goal.’ We face an entity that conquered the land of another people, drove them out of their land, and committed horrendous massacres. As we see, this is an illegal state; it is a cancerous entity and the root of all the crises and wars and cannot be a factor in bringing about a true and just peace in this region. Therefore, we cannot acknowledge the existence of a state called Israel, not even far in the future, as some people have tried to suggest. Time does not cancel the legitimacy of the Palestinian claim.”
  • “Put a knife in your shirt, then get close to an Israeli occupier and stab him.”
  • “The Palestinian National Charter will live on as long as there is a knife in a Palestinian woman’s hand with which she stabs an Israeli soldier or settler … as long as there are suicide bombers in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv … and as long as there is a child who throws a stone in the face of an Israeli soldier.”
  • “Let the entire world hear me. Our hostility to the Great Satan [America] is absolute. … Regardless of how the world has changed after 11 September, ‘Death to America’ will remain our reverberating and powerful slogan: ‘Death to America.'”
  • “Martyrdom operations — suicide bombings — should be exported outside Palestine. I encourage Palestinians to take suicide bombings worldwide. Don’t be shy about it.” (December 6, 2002)
  • “If we searched the entire world for a person more cowardly, despicable, weak and feeble in psyche, mind, ideology and religion, we would not find anyone like the Jew. Notice, I do not say the Israeli.”
  • Nasrallah has characterized Jews as the “grandsons of apes and pigs,” and as “Allah’s most cowardly and greedy creatures.”
  • “It is our pride that the Great Satan [the U.S.] and the head of despotism, corruption and arrogance in modern times considers us as an enemy that should be listed in the terrorism list. … I say to every member of Hezbollah [should] be happy and proud that your party has been placed on the list of terrorist organizations as the U.S. view it.” (November 4, 2001)


Sheikh Muhammad Sayyed Tantawi, the top Egyptian cleric of Al­Azhar University

  • According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, a website associated with Al­Azhar University recently reported in early 2002: “The great Imam of Al­Azhar Sheikh Muhammad Sayyed Tantawi, demanded that the Palestinian people, of all factions, intensify the martyrdom operations [i.e. suicide attacks] against the Zionist enemy, and described the martyrdom operations as the highest form of Jihad operations. He says that the young people executing them have sold Allah the most precious thing of all. [Sheikh Tantawi] emphasized that every martyrdom operation against any Israeli, including children, women, and teenagers, is a legitimate act according to [Islamic] religious law, and an Islamic commandment, until the people of Palestine regain their land and cause the cruel Israeli aggression to retreat'”


Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Al Tayyeb, Egyptian Mufti

  • “The solution to the Israeli terror lies in a proliferation of Fidai [martyrdom] attacks that strike horror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah. The Islamic countries, peoples and rulers alike, must support these martyrdom attacks.”


Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, head of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, president of the International Association of Muslim Scholars (IAMS), and spritual guide for the Muslim Brotherhood

  • “We are fighting them in the name of Islam, because Islam commands us to fight whoever plunders our land, and occupies our country. All the school of Islamic jurisprudence ‘ the Sunni, the Shi’ite, the Ibadhiya, and all the ancient and modern schools of jurisprudence ‘ agree that any invader who occupies even an inch of land of the Muslims must face resistance. The Muslims of that country must carry out the resistance, and the rest of the Muslims must help them. If the people of that country are incapable or reluctant, we must fight to defend the land of Islam, even if the local [Muslims] give it up.”
  • “They must not allow anyone to take a single piece of land away from Islam. That is what we are fighting the Jews for. We are fighting them… Our religion commands us… We are fighting in the name of religion, in the name of Islam, which makes this Jihad an individual duty, in which the entire nation takes part, and whoever is killed in this [Jihad] is a martyr. This is why I ruled that martyrdom operations are permitted, because he commits martyrdom for the sake of Allah, and sacrifices his soul for the sake of Allah.’
  • “We do not disassociate Islam from the war. On the contrary, disassociating Islam from the war is the reason for our defeat. We are fighting in the name of Islam.”
  • “They fight us with Judaism, so we should fight them with Islam. They fight us with the Torah, so we should fight them with the Koran. If they say ‘the Temple,’ we should say ‘the Al-Aqsa Mosque.’ If they say: ‘We glorify the Sabbath,’ we should say: ‘We glorify the Friday.’ This is how it should be. Religion must lead the war. This is the only way we can win.”
  • “Everything will be on our side and against Jews on [Judgment Day]; at that time, even the stones and the trees will speak, with or without words, and say: ‘Oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim, there’s a Jew behind me, come and kill him.’ They will point to the Jews. It says ‘servant of Allah,’ not ‘servant of desires,’ ‘servant of women,’ ‘servant of the bottle,’ ‘servant of Marxism,’ or ‘servant of liberalism’… It said ‘servant of Allah.”
  • “There is no dialogue between us [Muslims and Jews] except by the sword and the rifle ‘”


Hezbollah, Muslim terrorist organization

  • In a 1992 statement, Hezbollah vowed, “It is an open war until the elimination of Israel and until the death of the last Jew on earth.”
  • The Hezbollah Founding Statement reads: “We are the sons of the umma [Muslim community] — the party of God … the vanguard of which was made victorious by God in Iran. ‘ We obey the orders of one leader, wise and just, that of our tutor and faqih (jurist) who fulfills all the necessary conditions: Ruhollah Musawi Khomeini. ‘ Our culture is crystal clear. It is not complicated and is accessible to all. No one can imagine the importance of our military potential as our military apparatus is not separate from our overall social fabric. Each of us is a fighting soldier. And when it becomes necessary to carry out the Holy War, each of us takes up his assignment in the fight in accordance with the injunctions of the Law, and that in the framework of the mission carried out under the tutelage of the Commanding Jurist. ‘ We combat abomination and we shall tear out its very roots, its primary roots, which are the U.S. All attempts made to drive us into marginal actions will fail, especially as our determination to fight the U.S. is solid. ”
  • The Hezbollah Founding Statement contains a section titled ‘The Necessity for the Destruction of Israel,’ which reads as follows: ‘We see in Israel the vanguard of the United States in our Islamic world. It is the hated enemy that must be fought until the hated ones get what they deserve. This enemy is the greatest danger to our future generations and to the destiny of our lands, particularly as it glorifies the ideas of settlement and expansion, initiated in Palestine, and yearning outward to the extension of the Great Israel, from the Euphrates to the Nile. Our primary assumption in our fight against Israel states that the Zionist entity is aggressive from its inception, and built on lands wrested from their owners, at the expense of the rights of the Muslim people. Therefore our struggle will end only when this entity is obliterated. We recognize no treaty with it, no cease fire, and no peace agreements, whether separate or consolidated. We vigorously condemn all plans for negotiation with Israel, and regard all negotiators as enemies, for the reason that such negotiation is nothing but the recognition of the legitimacy of the Zionist occupation of Palestine.’


Khalid Mashal, member of the Hamas Political Bureau

  • ‘You [Jews] will be defeated with God’s help. Victory’s day is approaching with God’s help. Before Israel dies, it will not escape humiliation and surrender. Before they die, with God’s help they will witness humiliation and surrendering. And America will not be there to help; nor will their generals. The last general is forgotten. God made Sharon disappear and he was departed from them. ‘ We forced a new equation in this battle. The new equation plays to our hands. We will defeat them [the Israelis]. We will defeat them emotionally and mentally before we defeat them in the field of battle. Gaza is the victory’s bed. ‘ Victory in these elections sends a message to Israel and America and all the abusers of this world. With us you will never succeed and you will always lose. If you want war, we are ready for war. ‘ The days of defeat within six days with hours are over. Today you are fighting against the army of Allah. Today you are fighting against people who care for dying for Allah, dying for honor and prestige more than they care for life itself.’


Mahmoud Zahar, Hamas Foreign Minister

  • ‘I dream of hanging a huge map of the world on the wall at my Gaza home which does not show Israel on it.’
  • ‘Even if the U.S. gave us all its money in return for recognizing Israel and giving up one inch of Palestine, we would never do so even if this costs us our lives.’

Fatah, terrorist faction headed by the late Yasser Arafat

  • Fatah defines as its principal goal the achievement of the “complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military, and cultural existence.” According to Fatah, this objective is not to be accomplished by peaceful means; nor does it allow for Israel’s continued existence: “Armed public revolution is the inevitable method to liberating Palestine. ‘ [T]he Palestinian Arab People’s armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated.” Candidly opposed to “any political solution offered as an alternative to demolishing the Zionist occupation in Palestine,” Fatah has made its organizational emblem a grenade and crossed rifles, superimposed on a map of present-day Israel. Fatah’s military arm, Tanzim, is funded by the Palestinian Authority and has played a leading role in Palestinian violence in recent years.
  • The “Essential Principles” of Fatah’s Constitution include the following: “Palestinian struggle is part and parcel of the worldwide struggle against Zionism, colonialism and international imperialism”; “Liberating Palestine is a national obligation which necessities the materialistic and human support of the Arab Nation”; “UN projects, accords and reso[lutions], or those of any individual which undermine the Palestinian people’s right in their homeland, are illegal and rejected”; “The Zionist Movement is racial, colonial, and aggressive in ideology, goals, organization and method”; “The Israeli existence in Palestine is a Zionist invasion with a colonial expansive base, and it is a natural ally to colonialism and international imperialism”; “Liberating Palestine and protecting its holy places is an Arab, religious, and human obligation.”

Sakher Habash, senior Central Committee member of Fatah

  • During a 1998 lecture at Shechem’s An-Najah University, Habash said: ‘To us, the refugee issue is the winning card which means the end of the Israeli state.’

Charter of the Palestine Liberation Organization (excerpts)

  • Article 1: Palestine is the homeland of the Arab Palestinian people; it is an indivisible part of the Arab homeland, and the Palestinian people are an integral part of the Arab nation.
  • Article 2: Palestine, with the boundaries it had during the British Mandate, is an indivisible territorial unit.
  • Article 3: The Palestinian Arab people possess the legal right to their homeland and have the right to determine their destiny after achieving the liberation of their country in accordance with their wishes and entirely of their own accord and will.
  • Article 4: The Palestinian identity is a genuine, essential, and inherent characteristic; it is transmitted from parents to children. The Zionist occupation and the dispersal of the Palestinian Arab people, through the disasters which befell them, do not make them lose their Palestinian identity and their membership in the Palestinian community, nor do they negate them.
  • Article 8: The phase in their history, through which the Palestinian people are now living, is that of national (watani) struggle for the liberation of Palestine. Thus the conflicts among the Palestinian national forces are secondary, and should be ended for the sake of the basic conflict that exists between the forces of Zionism and of imperialism on the one hand, and the Palestinian Arab people on the other. On this basis the Palestinian masses, regardless of whether they are residing in the national homeland or in diaspora (mahajir) constitute — both their organizations and the individuals — one national front working for the retrieval of Palestine and its liberation through armed struggle.
  • Article 9: Armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine. Thus it is the overall strategy, not merely a tactical phase. The Palestinian Arab people assert their absolute determination and firm resolution to continue their armed struggle and to work for an armed popular revolution for the liberation of their country and their return to it. ‘
  • Article 10: Commando action constitutes the nucleus of the Palestinian popular liberation war. This requires its escalation, comprehensiveness, and the mobilization of all the Palestinian popular and educational efforts and their organization and involvement in the armed Palestinian revolution. It also requires the achieving of unity for the national struggle among the different groupings of the Palestinian people, and between the Palestinian people and the Arab masses, so as to secure the continuation of the revolution, its escalation, and victory.
  • Article 15: The liberation of Palestine, from an Arab viewpoint, is a national duty and it attempts to repel the Zionist and imperialist aggression against the Arab homeland, and aims at the elimination of Zionism in Palestine. Absolute responsibility for this falls upon the Arab nation — peoples and governments — with the Arab people of Palestine in the vanguard. Accordingly, the Arab nation must mobilize all its military, human, moral, and spiritual capabilities to participate actively with the Palestinian people in the liberation of Palestine. It must, particularly in the phase of the armed Palestinian revolution, offer and furnish the Palestinian people with all possible help, and material and human support, and make available to them the means and opportunities that will enable them to continue to carry out their leading role in the armed revolution, until they liberate their homeland.
  • Article 19: The partition of Palestine in 1947 and the establishment of the state of Israel are entirely illegal, regardless of the passage of time, because they were contrary to the will of the Palestinian people and to their natural right in their homeland …
  • Article 20: Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood. Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong.
  • Article 22: Zionism is a political movement organically associated with international imperialism and antagonistic to all action for liberation and to progressive movements in the world. It is racist and fanatic in its nature, aggressive, expansionist, and colonial in its aims, and fascist in its methods. Israel is the instrument of the Zionist movement, and geographical base for world imperialism placed strategically in the midst of the Arab homeland to combat the hopes of the Arab nation for liberation, unity, and progress. Israel is a constant source of threat vis-a-vis peace in the Middle East and the whole world. Since the liberation of Palestine will destroy the Zionist and imperialist presence and will contribute to the establishment of peace in the Middle East, the Palestinian people look for the support of all the progressive and peaceful forces and urge them all, irrespective of their affiliations and beliefs, to offer the Palestinian people all aid and support in their just struggle for the liberation of their homeland.
  • Article 23: The demand of security and peace, as well as the demand of right and justice, require all states to consider Zionism an illegitimate movement, to outlaw its existence, and to ban its operations, in order that friendly relations among peoples may be preserved, and the loyalty of citizens to their respective homelands safeguarded.


Yasser Arafat

  • ‘We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. . . . We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem.’
  • ‘Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations.’
  • ‘The victory march will continue until the Palestinian flag flies in Jerusalem and in all of Palestine.’
  • ‘Continued to press on soldiers of freedom! We will not bend or fail until the blood of every last Jew from the youngest child to the oldest elder is spilt to redeem our land!’
  • ‘Since we cannot defeat Israel in war, we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.’

Zahir Muhse’in, PLO Executive Committee Member

  • “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality todaythere is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.” (March 31, 1977)

Excerpts from Palestinian Authority sermons:

  • “We the Palestinian nation, our fate from Allah is to be the vanguard in the war against the Jews until the resurrection of the dead, as the prophet Mohammed said: ‘The resurrection of the dead will not arrive until you will fight the Jews and kill them…’ We the Palestinians are the vanguard in this undertaking and in this campaign, whether or not we want this…” (Palestinian TV, July 28, 2000)
  • “Blessed is he who fights jihad in the name of Allah, blessed is he who [goes on] raids in the name of Allah, blessed is he who dons a vest of explosives on himself or on his children and goes in to the depth of the Jews and says: ‘Allahu Akbar, blessed be Allah.’ Like the collapse of the building upon the heads of the Jews in their sinful dance-hall, I ask of Allah that we see the Knesset collapsing on the heads of the Jews.” (Palestinian TV, June 8, 2001)
  • “The battle with the Jews will surely come … the decisive Moslem victory is coming without a doubt, and the prophet spoke about in more than one Hadith. And the day of resurrection will not come without the victory of the believers [the Moslems] over the descendents of the monkeys and pigs [the Jews] and with their annihilation.” (official P.A. newspaper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 18, 2001)
  • “The Jews are the Jews. There never was among them a supporter of peace. They are all liars… the true criminals, the Jewish terrorists, that slaughtered our children, that turned our wives into widows and our children into orphans, and desecrated our holy places. They are terrorists. Therefore it is necessary to slaughter them and murder them, according to the words of Allah… it is forbidden to have mercy in your hearts for the Jews in any place and in any land. Make war on them anyplace that you find yourself. Any place that you encounter them — kill them. Kill the Jews and those among the Americans that are like them… Have no mercy on the Jews, murder them everywhere…” (Palestinian TV, October 13, 2000)
  • “O Allah, destroy America as it is controlled by Zionist Jews… Allah will avenge, in the name of His Prophet, the colonialist settlers who are the descendents of monkeys and pigs…” [Ikrime Sabri, Mufti of the Palestinian Authority, (from weekly sermon in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem). Voice of Palestine, July 11, 1997]


Abd-Al Malek Dahamshe, Israeli Arab Knesset Member

  • “Our problem with Israel is not a border problem, but an existential one,” Knesset Member Dahamshe responded: “We exaggerate when we say ‘peace’… What we are speaking about is Hudna” [a temporary agreement until some future liquidation of Israel]. (September 1, 2000)

Mahmoud Zahar, Hamas leader

  • “It’s our land. Nobody among our sons and grandsons will accept Israel as a legal state. … Israel is a foreign body. Not in this generation, not in the next generation, will we accept it here.”

Yasser Mansour, Hamas political candidate

  • Mansour said his group demands ownership of “Palestine from the river to the sea” — and believes in retaking the land from Jordan to the Mediterranean, including Israel.

Ayman Al-Zawahiri, chief Lieutenant to Osama bin Laden

  • Al Jazeera television broadcast a videotape on July 27, 2006, which showed Al-Zawahiri exhorting Muslims to wage jihad against Israel by joining the ongoing military conflicts in Lebanon and Gaza. Asserting that he viewed “all the world as a battlefield open in front of us,” and that the Israeli-Hezbollah war will not be ended with “cease-fires or agreements,” Zawahiri said: “It is a jihad for the sake of God and will last until [our] religion prevails … from Spain to Iraq. We will attack everywhere.” “My fellow Muslims,’ he added, ‘it is obvious that Arab and Islamic governments are not only impotent but also complicit … and you are alone on the battlefield. Rely on God and fight your enemies … make yourselves martyrs. ‘ The shells and rockets ripping apart Muslim bodies in Gaza and Lebanon are not only Israeli [weapons], but are supplied by all the countries of the crusader coalition. Therefore, every participant in the crime will pay the price. We cannot just watch these shells as they burn our brothers in Gaza and Lebanon and stand by idly, humiliated.’ In addition, Al-Zawahiri instructed Muslims to attack “crusaders and Zionists” and to support jihad “until American troops are chased from Afghanistan and Iraq, paralyzed and impotent … having paid the price for aggression against Muslims and support for Israel.”

Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, former President of Iran

  • “The use of a nuclear bomb in Israel will leave nothing on the ground, whereas it will only damage the world of Islam.”


Gen. Mohammad Ebrahim Dehghani, a top Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander

  • “We have announced that wherever [in Iran] America does make any mischief, the first place we target will be Israel,” said Gen. Mohammad Ebrahim Dehghani, a top Revolutionary Guards commander.

Suleiman Abu Gheith, al Qaeda spokesman

  • In a June 2002 manifesto (translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute), Abu Gheith wrote, “America is the head of heresy in our modern world, and it leads an infidel democratic regime that is based upon separation of religion and state and on ruling the people by the people via legislating laws that contradict the way of Allah and permit what Allah has prohibited. … America is the reason for all oppression, injustice, licentiousness, or suppression that is the Muslims’ lot. ‘ We have the right to kill 4 million Americans — 2 million of them children — and to exile twice as many and wound and cripple hundreds of thousands. Furthermore, it is our right to fight them with chemical and biological weapons. ‘ America is kept at bay by blood alone.”


Al Qaeda, Muslim terrorist organization

  • The organization’s worldview and ideals are spelled out in a 1998 document titled “Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders,” which Osama bin Laden co-authored with, among others, Ayman al-Zawahiri. The document reads: ” [I]n compliance with God’s order, we issue the following fatwah [ruling on Islamic law] to all Muslims: The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies — civilians and military — is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it ‘ to comply with God’s order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan’s U.S. troops and the devil’s supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson.”
  • Al Qaeda’s objectives, motives, and strategies are further detailed in an Al Qaeda Training Manual designed to instruct aspiring terrorists in the art of murdering “infidels.” The manual was discovered by England’s Manchester Metropolitan Police during a search of an al Qaeda member’s home. “Islamic governments have never and will never be established through peaceful solutions and cooperative councils,” states this publication. “They are established as they [always] have been by pen and gun, by word and bullet, by tongue and teeth.” The manual exhorts jihadists to “pledge ‘ to make their [the infidels’] women widows and their children orphans . . . to slaughter them like lambs and let the Nile, al-Asi, and Euphrates rivers flow with their blood ‘ to be a pick of destruction for every godless and apostate regime.” In addition, the manual enumerates what it calls “Missions Required of the Military Organization.” Among these are: “Assassinating enemy personnel as well as foreign tourists; ‘ Spreading rumors and writing statements that instigate people against the enemy; Blasting and destroying the places of amusement, immorality, and sin; Blasting and destroying the embassies and attacking vital economic centers; Blasting and destroying bridges leading into and out of the cities.”Finally, the manual explicitly declares that among al Qaeda’s “long-term goals” is “the establishment of an Islamic state.” But an “Islamic government would never be established except by the bomb and rifle,” the manual informs. “Islam does not coincide or make a truce with unbelief, but rather confronts it. The confrontation that Islam calls for with these godless and apostate regimes, does not know Socratic debates, Platonic ideals nor Aristotelian diplomacy. But it knows the dialogue of bullets, the ideals of assassination, bombing, and destruction, and the diplomacy of the cannon and machine-gun.”


Yahya Raheem Safavi, Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander (July 30, 2006)

  • “We Must Keep the Hatred of America Burning in Our Hearts Until the Moment of Revenge Arrives.”
  • “I hope that our courageous and great nation will succeed one day in taking revenge against Israel and America, avenging the blood of the oppressed Muslims and the martyrs.”
  • “We see America as also being the cause of the death of the 200,000 martyrs in the war that was forced upon us [i.e. the Iran-Iraq war], since it urged Saddam [Hussein] to attack Iran. We must keep the holy hatred burning in our hearts until the moment of revenge arrives.”
  • “In light of the Zionists’ crimes and oppression, I ask God to hasten the years when this regime will no longer exist. … The Zionists are hastening their own death through their foul deeds, since Hizbullah and the Lebanese people are undefeated. There is a need to topple the phony Zionist regime, this cancerous growth [called] Israel, which was founded in order to plunder the Muslims’ resources and wealth.”

Study: 3 in 4 U.S. mosques preach anti-West extremismSecret survey exposes widespread radicalism


Posted: February 23, 2008
9:51 pm Eastern© 2008 WorldNetDaily

An undercover survey of more than 100 mosques and Islamic schools in America has exposed widespread radicalism, including the alarming finding that 3 in 4 Islamic centers are hotbeds of anti-Western extremism, WND has learned.The Mapping Sharia in America Project, sponsored by the Washington-based Center for Security Policy, has trained former counterintelligence and counterterrorism agents from the FBI, CIA and U.S. military, who are skilled in Arabic and Urdu, to conduct undercover reconnaissance at some 2,300 mosques and Islamic centers and schools across the country.”So far of 100 mapped, 75 should be on a watchlist,” an official familiar with the project said.Many of the Islamic centers are operating under the auspices of the Saudi Arabian government and U.S. front groups for the radical Muslim Brotherhood based in Egypt.Frank Gaffney, a former Pentagon official who runs the Center for Security Policy, says the results of the survey have not yet been published. But he confirmed that “the vast majority” are inciting insurrection and jihad through sermons by Saudi-trained imams and anti-Western literature, videos and textbooks.

(Islamic Apartheid extremism made) “No-go” (areas for non-Muslims) Bishop defends comments

Feb. 2008

‘No-go’ Bishop defends comments

The Bishop of Rochester has received death threats

A Church of England bishop who claimed Islamic extremism has made some places no-go areas for non-Muslims insists he was right to speak out on the issue.

The Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Dr Michael Nazir-Ali raised the issue last month in a Sunday Telegraph interview.

Now in a follow-up interview with the same newspaper, he accuses church leaders of not confronting the matter.

“The issue had to be raised. There are times when Christian leaders have to speak out. It’s my duty,” he says.

‘Spiritual leaders’

Since making the comments in January he has received threats against himself and his family. Dr Nazir-Ali and his family are now under police protection.

In his latest interview, he insists his remarks were “based on evidence” and have been “strengthened as a result of overwhelming correspondence”.

Do the British people really want to lose that rooting in the Christian faith that has given them everything they cherish?

Rt Rev Dr Michael Nazir-Ali

He argues that a “spiritual and moral vacuum” has occurred in Britain over the past half-century.

Unless Christianity fills that void, he adds, something else may take its place – “and that could be Islam”.

“Do the British people really want to lose that rooting in the Christian faith that has given them everything they cherish – art, literature, architecture, institutions, the monarchy, their value system, their laws?”

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, subsequently faced intense criticism after he said that the adoption of sharia law in the UK was “unavoidable”.

But Dr Nazir-Ali tells the Sunday Telegraph that he strongly rejects this analysis.

“People of every faith should be free within the law to follow what their spiritual leaders direct them to, but that’s very different saying their structures should replace that of the English legal system because there would be conflicts,” he says.

He was born in Pakistan and has both a Christian and Muslim family background.

Bishp Warns of ‘Islamic areas’ http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7173599.stm

Salafi Imam: We Must BELIEVE Arabs are “Master Race”

February 24, 2008

Salafi Imam: We Must BELIEVE Arabs are “Master Race”

February 19, 2008

In part five of my series Why Blackamerican Muslims Don’t Stand For Justice, I mentioned the racist beliefs held and taught by one of the major leaders of the 1990’s Salafi Movement, Imam Abu Usamah Ath-Thahabi (a Blackamerican), that the Arabs are superior to the non-Arabs (or in other words: the Arabs are the “Master Race”)

My purpose here is to show the insidious nature of this movement in promoting the RACIAL superiority of Arabs. And while the Salafis happen to be the only ones brazen (or foolish) enough to openly preach this swill, it is nevertheless a tightly held secret in many classical Islamic texts. These Salafis actually want to give this repugnant teaching the status of religious dogma. Needless to say, Abu Usamah’s email quoted below explains why so many brothers in that movement suffer from inferiority complexes and try to be Arab. This is what he wrote: below the fold

ARABS are BETTER than Non-Arabs…

Alhamdulilah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasullilah:

Before dealing with this topic, it should be noted that recognized scholars of the Sunnah differed amongst themselves in this issue. Therefore, people should be careful about the way they choose to deal with the person that has an opposing view to his. If a person takes an opposing view to what is correct and his mistake and faulty opinion is due to him simply being human but he made every effort to follow the truth, then clearly this person is not blameworthy!

After offering up the above disclaimer, the acknowledged “difference of opinion” is further along in the piece repudiated on the authority of his Sheikh (not the Quran and Sunnah), who further adds quite demagogically that those who refuse to accept this divine “truth” are deviants in religion!

Sheikh-ul-Islam, Ibn Taymiyyah (ra) was of the opinion that Arabs ARE SUPERIOR (Afdal) than Non-Arabs and he claimed that this was the view that was held by the MAJORITY of the scholars – ‘Al-Jamhoor’- .

He wrote: “And the MAJORITY of scholars are of the opinion that the Arab species is better (Afdal) than the Non-Arab (species) just as the nation of Quraish is better (Afdal) than the Non-Quraishite nations and (just as) the nation of Bani Haashim is better (Afdal) than the Non-Bani Haashim (nations).” Majm’u Al-Fataawa 19/29

He also wrote: “…This was the position of Imam Ahmed (ra) and the MAJORITY of Ahlul ‘Ilm.” Iqtidaa As-Siraatil-Mustaqeem 2/421

Also, refer to what he said in Majmu’ Fataawa 27/472.

For great scholars of Ahmed ibn Hanbal and Ibn Taymiyyah’s caliber to advance such racist garbage is truly disheartening, nevertheless Ibn Taymiyyah claims it is the position of the “majority” of Muslim scholars. The question for us becomes; is it? Do the scholars of the large immigrant Muslim organizations like I.S.N.A, Q.S.S., C.A.I.R., M.A.S., I.I.I.T, etc, clandestinely subscribe to this noxious belief? Could this possibly explain why Blackamerican Muslims, at least from my observation over the years, are treated like second class citizens in every one of these groups? Is there a conspiracy to perfume and camouflage this reeking, ideological excrement just long enough to smuggle it passed unsuspecting and uninitiated Muslims? And doesn’t the Quran plainly attach the notion of superiority to taqwa (God consciousness) and completely reject any and all such theories of racial superiority? And what about that beautiful scene we fondly remember in the movie “The Message”, when during the Prophet’s final sermon he stated “know that there is no superiority of the Arab over the non Arab….except in the fear of God.”

Further, what is the nature of this “Superiority” anyway? Is it that the Arabs are stronger or super human? Are they inherently more intelligent? Do they have a first class, guaranteed ticket to Paradise? What EXACTLY does superiority mean and why bring it to a people struggling to overcome their own feelings of INFERIORITY? Far from echoing the teachings of the Merciful Lord of all the worlds, it more resembles the rantings of Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

Unfortunately, when discussing the issue of the ‘Afdaliyyah’ or superiority of the Arabs over the ‘Ajamees’ (Non-Arabs), many people fail to do justice to this hotly debated topic.

Muslims – including students of knowledge – tend to tenaciously cling to the fringes of the two extremes and they find it extremely difficult to remain fair, just and balanced!

Terror’s South American Front By Erick Stakelbeck Friday, March 19, 2004
Situated between Argentina and Brazil, the sprawling Iguazu waterfalls are among the most popular tourist destinations in South America, with nearly 2 million visitors flocking annually to witness their extravagant beauty. In recent years, however, the area surrounding the falls has also attracted a far less savory element. In the shadow of the Iguazu lies the “tri-border” region, a lawless zone which has become a magnet for Islamic terrorists.
Located where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay meet, the area is home to roughly 20,000 Middle Eastern immigrants—mostly from Lebanon and Syria—and has long been a hotbed for terrorist fundraising, arms and drug trafficking, counterfeiting and money laundering. By moving freely through the region’s porous borders, operatives from the terrorist organizations Hizbollah, Hamas, and according to some reports, al-Qaeda, are able to conduct arms-for-drugs deals with secular Latin American terrorist groups like the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and Peru’s Sendero Luminosos (Shining Path). All told, U.S. officials believe that between $10 and $12 billion is funneled through the tri-border region each year, with Hizbollah among the prime beneficiaries.

A German’s Point of View on Islam [Islamofascism: Parallels with Nazism & Communism]

February 20, 2008

[Islamofascism: Parallels with Nazism & Communism]

A German’s Point of View on Islam

A man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War ll owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.’Very few people were true Nazis ‘he said,’ but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies
destroyed my factories.
‘We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.It is the fanatics who march.
 It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave.
 It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor kill.
It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque.
 It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals.
 The hard quantifiable fact is that the ‘peaceful majority’, the ‘silent majority’, is cowed and extraneous.Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people.
The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War ll was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilian s; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghan is, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts: the fanatics who threaten our way of life.Lastly, at the risk of offending, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems of expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read this – think about it – and send it on.

As Europe Yields To Islamofascism, Is U.S. On The Same Path?

As Europe Yields To Islamofascism, Is U.S. On The Same Path?
thebulletin ^ | February, 2008 | Herb Denenberg

Herb Denenberg: The Advocate As Europe Yields To Islamofascism, Is U.S. On The Same Path? By Herb Denenberg, The Bulletin 02/13/2008

The once mighty, the once invincible, the once courageous and brave-beyond-belief Britain is in the process of surrendering to Islamofascism without firing a shot. Here are the latest examples indicating how far along that process has gone:

British government ministers have declared that Islamic terrorism will no longer be so described. In the future, Muslim fanatics, murderers and suicide bombers will be referred to as pursuing “anti-Islamic activity.”

This new language, turning the truth on its head, was announced by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith. She said that these Islamic murderers and terrorists were behaving contrary to their faith and are not acting in the name of Islam.

In her statement, she said, “As so many Muslims in the U.K. and across the world have pointed out, there is nothing Islamic about the wish to terrorize, nothing Islamic about plotting murder, pain and grief. Indeed, if anything these actions are anti-Islamic.”

Other phrases that are not be used by people at the top of the British government are “war on terror” and “Islamic extremism.” The director of public prosecution has also chimed in by saying that phrases that liken London to “a battlefield” will no longer be used. This perversion of language would even embarrass George Orwell.

The British government seems to be excusing and apologizing for those blowing up Britons in the name of Islam and Allah, and they are doing it without even being asked. One conservative member of parliament, Philip Davies, said that no Muslim constituent had ever complained to him about the term “Islamic extremism.”

Mr. Davies went on to explain, “Whenever anyone refers to Islamic terrorism, they are not saying all Muslims are terrorist. Everybody knows what people mean is terrorists doing it in the name of Islam, misguidedly. If the government spent less time worrying about this and more time worrying about things such as having effective border controls, we would be getting somewhere.”

Here is another step in the path of surrender to Islamofascism: The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, recently called for the recognition of Islamic law in Britain. He said, “We have to think about the rule of law in a society of overlapping identities.” The Web site http://www.thisislondon.co.uk reported, “He declared that sharia and parliamentary law should be given equal legal status so the people could choose which governs their lives. This raised the prospect of Islamic courts in Britain with full legal powers to approve polygamous marriages, grant easy divorces for men and prevent finance firms from charging interest.”

His critics rightly said this is sleepwalking to segregation and encourages segregation rather than integration. The archbishop has a formula to assure not the unification of Britain – but its disintegration.

The archbishop said it would be possible to develop “a scheme in which individuals retain the liberty to choose the jurisdiction under which they will seek to resolve certain carefully specified matters so that power holders are forced to compete for the loyalty of their shared constituents. This may include aspects of marital law, the regulation of financial transactions and authorized structures of mediation and conflict resolution.”

One critic put it this way, speaking of the archbishop: “He’s one of the most influential Christian prelates in the world, and he is supposed to be standing up for Christianity. What he’s doing is abandoning his own religion. If people come to this country, they should be prepared to compromise their own traditions to fit in with the host country.” Another critic, an MP, said, “Freedom under the law allows respect for some religious practice. But let’s be absolutely clear: All British citizens must be subject to British laws developed through Parliament and the courts.”

These two developments suggest that Britain has lost confidence in its own laws, culture, values, history and traditions. And it suggests it lacks the confidence and strength to resist the coming onslaught of Islamofascism. Kenneth Clark, in his book Civilization, noted, “It is lack of confidence, more than anything else, that kills a civilization. We can destroy ourselves by cynicism and disillusion just as effectively as by bombs.”

This calls to mind one of the great points made in the book America Alone by Mark Steyn, whose work also appears in The Bulletin. He tells the story of a British general in India, when it was still controlled by the British Empire. This general was confronted with suttee, the Indian custom of burning on a funeral pyre, by the widow of a man who had just died. He told the Indians, “You have your culture and we have ours. You can build your funeral pyre, but next to it we will build our gallows.” That kind of confidence in the British culture has been replaced by a kind of cowardice and lack of confidence, reflected in these case studies.

If you read America Alone, Londonistan by Melanie Phillips and While Europe Slept by Bruce Bawer, you’ll be convinced that Europe is lost to Islamofascism and that soon, in Mr. Steyn’s words, it will be “America alone” to defend freedom. These two case studies, described above, show how far the British have gone from the spirit and tradition of Winston Churchill to sniveling and surrendering cowards that have lost their center and their way.

One of the world’s most renowned and respected scholars of the Middle East and Islam agrees with this grim view. Prof. Bernard Lewis says that the Muslims “seem to be about to take over Europe.” He says that Islam is about to become the dominant force in Europe because the Europeans have abdicated the battle for cultural and religious control in the name of political correctness.

Mr. Lewis makes it clear that what is at stake is not just the form of prayer or whatnot. He is concerned about the growing Muslim power in Europe along with its rising support of extremist and terrorist movements within Islam. Mr. Lewis says that Europe has not fought the threat, and has just given up.

This development is of great concern not only because of the importance of Europe in the free world, but also because many believe the United States are on the same track toward Muslim domination, just at a less developed stage than Europe.

Ms. Phillips writes, “The [British] government had quite simply handed over policy on extremism to the extremists. This was no accident but a deliberate policy of riding the Islamic tiger. Asked why the government was using radicals in this way, [then British Home Secretary Charles] Clarke replied that it was to demonstrate to the Muslim community that democracy entailed engaging with a range of views rather than blowing up one’s opponents.

“Clarke appeared to think that he could use dialogue with the Islamists as a kind of role-play, which would have no effect on government policy but would show that talking was the ‘British way.’ This was hopelessly naïve. It took no account of the fact that it raised the profile of such radicals and gave them credibility and thus even more clout within their community. Above all it showed that, like so many others, Clarke did not grasp that religious ideology rather than bombs was the principal weapon in the war.”

Mr. Lewis explains how and why Europe is giving away its culture, religion and values. He says, “Europeans are losing their own loyalties and their own self-confidence. They have no respect for their own culture.” He says that Europeans have “surrendered” on every issue related to Islam in a mood of “self-abasement,” “political correctness” and “multiculturalism.” Some observers of the American scene say that is exactly what is in the process of killing us. Yes, America is also awash with deadly self-abasement (anti-Americanism), political correctness and multiculturalism.

The Cybercast News Service reports, “Members of Congress are seeking more information regarding the firing of a top terrorism expert at the Pentagon following reports that he was dismissed for being too critical of Islamic law. Earlier this month, the Pentagon Joint Staff told Stephen Coughlin, a specialist on Islamic law at the Pentagon, that his contract would not be renewed in March. The firing apparently resulted from pressure by pro-Muslim officials working in the Department of Defense, according to numerous news reports.” This story was broke by intelligence analyst Kenneth R. Timmerman, author of Shadow Warriors.

Emanuel Winston, a respected Middle East analyst, wrote that this is more than a bad personnel decision: “There is every indication that Islamists have deeply penetrated the organs of the U.S. government. An expert on Islam in the Pentagon [the aforementioned Coughlin] was recently fired due to pressure by Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England. This dismissal was provoked by Hesham Islam, a personal aide to England. Heshem Islam was born and raised in Egypt. He is reported to be heavily involved with the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA), which has been named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terror funding case involving the Holy Land Foundation. Strange things are happening at the Pentagon and intel agencies but not so strange as what is called the Arabist U.S. State Department. Recently, according to John Bolton, former American ambassador to the U.N., the State Department sent several of its pro-Arab staff into the Pentagon and 16 American intel agencies to initiate their own policy.”

This whole problem and process has been aggravated by the incessant anti-American journalism of the mainstream media, and the virulent anti-American scholarship and pronouncements coming from so many of our colleges and universities. And this trend will be further aggravated if political power shifts leftward – to politicians and a Democratic Party that appear to lack the will to fight and win the war on terror and the war against Islamofascism. It is no exaggeration to say that the ongoing political campaign may well determine whether civilization as we know it will survive, and whether America – alone or not – can fight and win the war against Islamofascism that has been thrust upon it.

Those with questions about the direction of the Democratic Party and the left should look more closely at its driving force. David Horowitz, author and founder of the online newsmagazine FrontPageMag.com, has written many important books, but this may be his most important: Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left.

He writes, “This is a book about the political left in America, its problematic allegiances with Islamic radicals, its influence on the Democratic party, its opposition to the war In Iraq and its impact on the war on terror.” A more comprehensive and less diplomatic summary statement might go like this: The American left – including the driving force of the Democratic Party, most of the mainstream media and most of our major colleges and universities – have become irrationally critical of America, its military and its foreign policy. They have also made alliances with or lent support to our enemies and have damaged our ability to defend our shores against radical Islam and other sources of terrorism. They are one of the reasons we may, in Kenneth Clark’s words, lose the confidence it takes to maintain and defend our civilization.
