Ignoring radical Islam will lead to peril

September 24, 2008

“Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West,” a Liberty Film Festival winner for best feature documentary film in DVD form, is a must-see movie for anyone.

The president of the Hudson Institute, a respected think tank, writes, “If you haven’t seen it, you should! And if you have seen it, you should insist that others see it as well. Our future may depend on it.” United States Naval War College Professor Jeffrey Norwitz sees it as “expertly produced with solid historic research; … every viewer regardless of background will learn something.”

The film is “about a radical worldview, and the threat it poses to us all, Muslims and non-Muslims alike,” according to the nonprofit, non-partisan organization that made the film. The organization’s mission is to educate Americans about national security issues through documentary films, Web sites and educational materials.

The one-hour film is especially valuable, as in it the radical jihadists tell the story themselves. Unedited footage from Arab television shows rare scenes, from the education and indoctrination of Arab children in the classroom, where they are taught to value jihad and “the love of fighting, … for the sake of Allah,” to a suicide-bomber induction ceremony and fiery speeches in Middle East mosques and in London and New York City streets, preaching the Islamization of the world and the destruction of the Jews, the Americans and the British.

What Wikipedia called “notable counter-terrorism figures” provide the analysis in the film. Among them are Egyptian-American writer Nonie Darwish, a graduate of the American University in Cairo, daughter of an Egyptian lieutenant general who headed Fadayeen terror operations against Israel, and was assassinated by the Israelis in 1956 when Darwish was 8; Bethlehem-born Walid Shoebat, with a Palestinian father and an American mother, an anti-Israeli activist turned supporter of Israel after Sep. 11, 2001, a controversial former Palestinian Liberation Organization terrorist; West-Bank-born Khaled Abu Toameh, with an Israeli Arab father and a Palestinian Arab mother, a graduate of the Hebrew University, and a senior reporter for the Jerusalem Post; Alfons Heck, a member of Hitler Youth who became a Nazi officer, described by Wikipedia as “a fanatical adherent of Nazism’s ideologies.”

The film contains footage of radical Muslims’ global jihad attacks in New York City, London, Madrid; in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe — “all fronts of a global jihad,” says one analyst.

Analysts were unanimous that “history repeats itself,” as the film reviews Hitler’s Mein Kampf of the German “Aryans” against the “Jewish peril,” connects “the dots” showing parallels between radical Islamists’ jihad and the Nazi holocaust, the similar propaganda techniques of continuously demonizing enemies, the remarkable resemblance in manipulating young minds toward fanatic hatred and training followers to accept death — the difference being death for the Fatherland was dictated by Hitler, a man, while death for the sake of Allah claims the sanction of the Almighty.

As the film shows, the 1998 Jordanian and Palestinian school book teaches, “This religion (Islam) will destroy all other religions through the Islamic Jihad fighters,” a final goal of the radical jihadists.

“I was an intense believer in the Nazi ideology,” says Heck in the film. “I know what a supreme dedication to an ideology can do.”

“We need to understand the culture that produces terrorism,” says Darwish. After 9/11, people asked “why do they hate us?” Some blame themselves and U.S. foreign policies. This “distracted” from the real reason of an “ideology that wants to destroy us.”

Professor Robert Wistrich of the Sassoon Center for Antisemitism thinks of a “particular strand” in Islam represented by the radicals that challenges the “sacredness of life” embraced by Western culture.

The film shows Sheik Ibrahim Mahdi speak on Palestinian TV: “We must educate our children on the love of Jihad for the sake of Allah. And the love of fighting ….” And Palestinian TV footage of 1998 shows children recite, “I march quickly toward my death.”

The former dean of Islamic Law at Qatar University laments, “We have not succeeded in making our children love life ….”

Analysts asked in the film: If radical jihadists dehumanize the West and preach every day that it is evil and must be destroyed, and if Palestine and Saudi TV preach kids to want to become suicide bombers,”what do you expect will happen?

Palestinian journalist Toameh says, “As a Muslim I feel pretty worried, … and I feel shamed; … Islam has been hijacked by different fanatic groups.” He hopes it is “out of fear and not out of sympathy” that the “silent majority” of Muslims don’t speak up.

Professor Wistrich asserts that that there is “No evil that simply has disappeared on its own accord.” He laments, evil triumphs “because there is not enough people who stand up” to defeat it.

You “can’t claim ignorance anymore,” says Darwish, and analysts in the film agree if we continue to ignore radical Islam, we do so “at our own peril,” and “risk our own demise.”

A. Gaffar Peang-Meth, Ph.D., is retired from the University of Guam, where he taught political science for 13 years.

You Must Watch ‘Obsession’ because CAIR doesn’t want you to know the truth about Radical Islam

You Must Watch ‘Obsession’ because CAIR doesn’t want you to know the truth about Radical Islam

Topics: Understanding Islam

Via Dan Riehl, I see that CAIR is once again “Outraged” – this time in Fla – and they want to shut down the distribution of copies of the movie, Obsession, being distributed in newspapers there. Apparently a few politically correct, highly ill informed, naive papers have refused to include the insert including one in North Carolina. Dan has the links to two videos to YouTube by CAIRtv in which the also obviously politically correct, highly ill-informed, naive newscasters play right into the hands of the Muslim activist group (with a highly dangerous agenda for America) and with proven ties to terrorists.

Dan has posted on the campaign and has done a review of Obsession here.

Now given that CAIR doesn’t want you to see the movie and just in case you haven’t received a free copy or somehow have failed to see it by now, please watch this 6 part youtube FoxNews film which Lionheart suggests is one of the best and most informative films you will see on the threat we in the civilized World face in relation to Islam’s Holy War against us (HT – Lionheart for posting the links to all six parts at YouTube): Fox News:The Threat of Radical Islam (Parts 1 – 6). I was fortunate enough to watch the entire Fox News special at the time of its airing and enjoyed every minute of it. And, of course, E.D. Hill as the announcer, made it all the more effective.

Middle East professor says controversial Obsession movie “straightforward” (Via Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch):

Always refreshing to see a member of that bastion of Islamic apologetics — academia — actually being objective. More on this story. “Swift dispute, radical Muslims DVD flare scrutiny of Islam,” by Chris Casey for the Tribune, September 21:

James Lindsay, an associate professor of Middle Eastern history at CSU, takes an opposite view on “Obsession.” He believes it’s a straightforward look at radical Islam.

He said the producers are explicit that film is about the radical ideology within Islam, which is advanced by the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida and other groups. The film’s introduction states that most Muslims are peaceful and don’t support terror.

The militant Islamic branch — which the film says makes up about 10 percent to 15 percent of a worldwide Muslim population of 1.2 billion, the world’s second-largest religion behind Christianity — has a conquest ideology, Lindsay said.

“It’s one of subjugating the world to their ideology. There is not room for another ideology, according to the radical Muslim ideology, and it’s frightening,” he said. “But it’s part and parcel of the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood and the al-Qaida types that they want to impose their will on everyone.”[…]

Lindsay, the CSU professor, said the Muslims who flew the airplanes into the Twin Towers felt they were doing God’s work.

Muslims who say “jihad” means the struggle for personal betterment aren’t giving the full picture of what’s written in the classical text, he said. Rather, the text says the Islamic practitioner is preparing himself to be a better warrior.

“The idea of the jihad as laid out by extremists is one of the doctrines within the Quran itself,” Lindsay said. “It’s a fundamental tenet of Islamic religion and it has been in Islamic history — engaging in warfare against the enemies of Islam.”

Conflicts between the West and Islam are inevitable, Lindsay said, because the demands of Islamic law are in conflict with the West’s approach to law and religion. The Quran speaks of creating a society that’s obedient to God’s law, not obedient to men’s model, he said.

Lindsay believes the way to deal with Muslim immigrants — as in the case of the JBS Swift workers — is to explain how employment rules and policies operate in the United States. “I have no desire to make any accommodations to Islamic law, and that’s my opinion.”

Pakistan’s bombing seen a big blow for markets Reuters India
Sun Sep 21, 2008 4:25pm IST By Sahar Ahmed
KARACHI, Sept 21 (Reuters) – A suicide bomb attack which killed at least 53 people in the Pakistani capital Islamabad will be a big blow to foreign investment and will lead to further weakening of the rupee which is already trading at a record low, dealers and analysts said on Sunday.
A suicide attacker set off a huge truck bomb on Saturday night at the Marriott Hotel, part of a U.S.-based chain and a favourite haunt of diplomats and rich Pakistanis.
The Czech ambassador and an American and German national were among the dead, while more than 270 people were wounded in the worst militant attack in the capital.
“In the short-term, its another hammering for the rupee,” said a currency dealer.
“It’s a big blow for foreign investment as foreigners are going to feel less secure in investing in Pakistan and the fact that the government is not able to control these attacks does not leave much confidence in the market.”
The Pakistani rupee weakened to to a record low of 78.27 against the dollar on Saturday because of weak economic fundamentals and the global financial crisis.
It has lost 21.3 percent against the dollar since the beginning of the the year.
Dealers also said the market was short of dollars because of the central bank’s buy/swap operations. The central bank has been buying

DELHI, India, Sept. 13 (UPI) — A series of small bombs were detonated in crowded New Delhi marketplaces Saturday, killing at least 30 people, Indian authorities said.

Besides those killed, at least 90 people were injured in the five blasts police said occurred within 30 minutes of each other in the Karol Bagh, Greater Kailash and Connaught Place markets, the Times of India reported. Three more explosive devices were defused, including one at Children’s Park at India Gate, the newspaper said.

TV news channel CNN-IBN said it received an e-mail shortly before the blasts from a group calling itself the Indian Mujahedin.

“Do whatever you can. Stop us if you can,” the e-mail said.

Indian Mujahedin has claimed to be behind recent bombings in Jaipur and Bangalore.

Islamic group claims Delhi bombs

By Krittivas Mukherjee and Bappa Majumdar

Monday, 15 September 2008

Police are trawling slums and criminal hideouts in India’s capital rounding up suspects after serial bombings in the city on Saturday killed at least 21 people and wounded nearly 100.

Police said they were pursuing several leads, including talking to an 11-year-old boy who said he had seen two men drop off a large plastic bag at one of the blast sites.

At hospitals, relatives of victims accused police of failing to protect them. “Down with the police,” they shouted, some with tears in their eyes. “We don’t trust you any more.”

“Helpless?” read the banner headline of the Sunday Times newspaper, expressing growing frustration at the inability of authorities to prevent a string of bomb attacks in recent months…A group calling itself the Indian Mujahedin sent an email to television stations shortly after the first explosion saying it was responsible.

1985–90 Atta studies architecture in the Engineering Faculty at Cairo University. According to his peers, he is an average student. In 1990, Atta joins the Engineers Syndicate, which is one of three professional associations controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, although he later says that he was not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/atta/maps/timeline.htm

who recruited 9/11 leader Mohamed AttaPosted: December 10, 20061:00 am Eastern© 2008 WorldNetDaily.com WASHINGTON – With suggestions the U.S. negotiate with Syria and Iran dominating the news, Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin reports Washington has already been talking quietly to a Syrian dissident group linked directly to the 9/11 hijackers and their sponsors in al-Qaida. The group is the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, known for its association with al-Qaida and allied with former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein….Spanish investigators linked al-Qaida leader Imad Eddit Barakat Yarkas in Madrid with fellow Syrian Muslim Brotherhood member Mohammad Haydar Zammar in Hamburg. Along with Barakat, Spanish authorities arrested five other al-Qaida members of Syrian descent. Yarkas and Zammar knew the Egyptian, Mohamed Atta, reputed leader of the 9-11 hijackers. Investigators report that Zammar not only had created the Hamburg al-Qaida cell but recruited Atta as well. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=53309

ENJOYING APPEASEMENT IN THE WEST

Score one for the Muslim Brotherhood.

SPECIAL REPORT: The Bush administration has decided that calling the enemy by his name is too risky, too politically incorrect, or oddly, somehow too laudatory…The U.S. government seems to think that declaring such links don’t exist will make it so. Score one for the Muslim Brotherhood.As Walid Phares describes in his post-9/11 three-book series on the meaning…What motivates the international Islamic jihad movement is a literal textual interpretation of doctrinal Islam as laid out in the Koran, hadith, and Sunna plus centuries of Islamic scholarship and consensus on the concept of just war. Within this construct, it is true that words such as jihad, mujahedin, and Caliphate carry intensely positive and honorable connotations – for the Muslim jihadis – but hardly for the rest of us, their intended targets for subjugation within the totalitarian system that Sharia would impose. In any case, use or non-use by infidels of the very terms by which jihadis identify themselves, to the extent that it might even be noticed, cannot possibly confer any additional measure of legitimacy on what has been for the mujahedin a centuries-old campaign of duty to spread their faith.What Americans need to understand is that Islamic jihadis, whether part of a formal terrorist organization such as al-Qaida or the Muslim Brotherhood, or merely ideologically driven by the actions and proclamations of such groups, are internally motivated by what they believe is a divine mandate to fight and kill until the entire world comes under the sway of Dar al-Islam (where Sharia law prevails).

The only relevance for this enemy that the choice of descriptive words may have is in the area of psychological operations. If the jihadi enemy can achieve such a state of muddled confusion among the top administrative, legislative, and military leadership of its primary enemy (the United States of America) that we no longer even permit ourselves to utter the name of those sworn to our destruction, then truly they are winning the “War of Ideas.”From a series of excellent recent media pieces, as well as extensive documentation entered into evidence in last year’s Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial, we now know the extent of Muslim Brotherhood activity throughout our society.Muslim Brotherhood organizations such as the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), all three listed by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators, have achieved unprecedented access to the Department of Defense and even the White House. But aware now of the enemy’s stealth and cunning in seeking to influence U.S. national security policy, the nation is obligated to reject his agenda — an agenda that prioritizes concealment until it is too late of the true nature of their campaign of conquest, whether by Dawa (persuasion, including by way of deception) or terrorist attack. http://www.metimes.com/Politics/2008/04/28/score_one_for_the_muslim_brotherhood/9562/
