Islamophobia: Red Meat for Wired Truth Haters

Comment by Jim Campbell

Finally someone at the flag level is willing to call Islam what it is, against our values and objectionable.  Kinda like our president no?
dajjal’s posterous

In Wired Magazine’s Danger Room,  Noah Shachtman and Spencer Ackerman  pander to left wingers who passionately hate  those who tell the truth about Islam.  The pandering takes the form of  a provocative headline followed by a slide show  containing images from  Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley’s classroom presentation.

The first slide  consists of a headline and five bullet points, one of which I could easily go negative on but I am  aware that the  slide is an outline, which refers to other course materials not presently in view, so I will reserve judgment.

The first point declares that parts of the  strategy will be  considered politically incorrect,  an obvious understatement.  In  war, the emphasis must be on  militarily correct strategy & tactics, not on  maintaining a PC image.

The second point informs us that the fourth Geneva Convention rules are not applicable to terrorism and hints at a “Phase III” which includes the destruction of Islam’s “holy” cities. The historical precedents listed will be interpreted as suggesting the use of nuclear weapons to destroy Mecca & Medina.

The third point rules out deterrence.  Islamic jihad can not be deterred, it can only be delayed.  Our strategists need to wrap their minds around the Qur’an’s Surah Al-Anfal and consider it as a whole with emphasis on 8:38, 60 & 65.  Deterrence does not apply to Islam because Muslims believe in Allah, his threat & promise.  Brig. S.K. Malik explained this in page 60 of The Qur’anic Concept of War : Islam makes Muslims immune to terror, hence to deterrence.

The fourth point reiterates the inapplicability of the Geneva Conventions to terrorists.  The fifth point asks whether the conventions should be reconsidered to disqualify non state actors.

That image is one of 28 pages in a pdf document which I would be inclined to describe as a course outline.  The authors  claim to have obtained “hundreds of pages of course material and reference documents “.  So, how do they classify the course?

“The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff recently ordered the entire U.S. military to scour its training material to make sure it doesn’t contain similarly hateful material, a process that is still ongoing.” [Emphasis added.]

It appears that Noah Shachtman and Spencer Ackerman confuse truth and hate.  Strip out the political correctness, confusion & cognitive dissonance from the course, and what remains is a mixture of objective factual reality and strategic analysis.   The authors do not see the course in the cold light of reality, they view it in the darkness of propaganda.  Examine this exemplary paragraph. [Emphasis & links origtinal.]

For the better part of the last decade, a small cabal of self-anointed counterterrorism experts has been working its way through the U.S. military, intelligence and law enforcement communities, trying to convince whoever it could that America’s real terrorist enemy wasn’t al-Qaida — but the Islamic faith itself. In his course, Dooley brought in these anti-Muslim demagogues as guest lecturers. And he took their argument to its final, ugly conclusion.

“Cabal”, “self-anointed”,  “demagogues”:  when you can not refute the message: attack the messenger.  Where  were OBL & Al-Qaeda in  the Barbary Wars?  Who attacked our shipping and why?  Look it up at Wikipedia if you don’t know.  Ambassadors Jefferson & Adams asked Tripoli’s Ambassador to London and were told that the ‘right’ to sack our shipping was established in Islamic law. His reply runs parallel to that of Al-Mughira to a Persian general.  [Emphasis & links added.]

Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.” [Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386]

The concluding paragraphs of the first article in the series bring out some quotes which bring up important concepts and expose shallow research, shallow thinking or cognitive dissonance.

“This barbaric ideology will no longer be tolerated. Islam must change or we will facilitate its self-destruction.”

Islam is a barbaric way of life: intra-species predation, not an ideology.  It is intolerable and should never be tolerated and there is no possibility of reforming it.  Perfection can not be improved, it can only be defiled: “This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm as your religion.”[5:3] What Allah has perfected,. Muslims can not improve, neither can kuffar.

The Qur’anic enjunctions to wage perpetual war [8:39, 9:29 & 9:123] can not be excised nor amended because Allah’s word is immutable: “No change can there be in the Words of Allâh, this is indeed the supreme success. “[10:64] , “No change let there be in Khalq­illâh (i.e. the Religion of Allâh Islâmic Monotheism), ” [30:30], ” None can change His Words.” [6:115], “None can change His Words” [18:27]

What part of “no change” & “none can change” does Dooley not comprehend?  Those instructing our officers should become familiar with the subject before they start lecturing.

“Islam reduced to a cult status” and “Saudi Arabia threatened with starvation.”

Islam is cultic, its founder arranged marriages, married a juvenile, lusted after an infant  and  made himself the final arbiter in all matters spiritual & temporal.   We need to quit describing and recognizing Islam as a religion.  It is a way of life with a   contrived religious component which motivates its fighting forces and camouflages  its predatory  nature.    Cutting off Saudi Arabia’s cash flow is not practical.  There is no real support for a boycott of Saudi oil.

 “the historical precedents of Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki” to Islam’s holiest cities, and bringing about “Mecca and Medina['s] destruction.”

Nuking Mecca & Medina would be a waste of bombs.  Instead of breaking Islamic morale, it would unite the Ummah in passionate hatred.   Military victory requires extinction.  If one Muslim remains, he will recruit others, build a fighting force, and resume attacks.  A Muslim’s eternal destination is dependent on his participation in jihad: either the fire or the celestial bordello.  To see this for yourself, read 9:38-39 & 61:10-13. While there is Islam, there will be war.  Islam must be completely eradicated, there is no other solution.

Defeating Islam militarily will require nuking major Muslim population concentrations; killing Mullahs, Imams & Mufties, bombing & strafing their funeral processions in mixed population areas.  Who is willing to wage total and exterminating war? Islam is, Western Civilization is not. Our cause is lost.

In the second page of their screed, Shachtman & ackerman lead off by showing their true colors.

Dooley’s ideological allies have repeatedly stated that “mainstream” Muslims are dangerous, because they’re “violent” by nature. Yet only a few of al-Qaida’s most twisted fanatics were ever caught musing about wiping out entire cities.

That treacherous calumny  depicts the defender  as worse than the attacker and is obviously false.    The President of Iran openly dreams of a “world without America”.  The attacks on the World Trade Center were intended to destroy our economy.  Both Al-Qaeda and Iran seek nuclear weapons, exactly what would they be used for if not to destroy cities?

Muslims are dangerous, posing a real, proximate & persistent existential threat  to civilization because  of the intrinsic doctrines enshrined in the Qur’an and exemplified by the hadith..  “Jihad is ordained for you” [2:216] “Fight them until” [8:39]  “Fight those who… until” [9:29] .  “It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. ” [8:67] .  “I will cast terror” [3:151, 8:12], “Allah cast terror” [33:2659:2].  Muslims are commanded to “strike terror” and “terrify” real and potential enemies [8:57, 8:60].
Morons  & Traitors want us to believe that those  egregious ayat of  mandatory conquest, genocide & terror are metaphorical, anachronistic or deprecated.  But Moe said something that proves their maundery to be malignant: “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ ” [Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387].  “I am commanded to fight with men till they testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is His servant and His Apostle, face our qiblah (direction of prayer), eat what we slaughter, and pray like us. ” [Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2635]. “Jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal” [Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2526] .

The Qur’an & hadith  are not the last word; they are codified in  Shari’ah:  Islamic law.  Open Reliance of the Traveller to  Book O, Chapter 9  and read through O9.9. Islamic law requires a minimum of one military expedition against disbelievers in every year.  “The caliph makes war on Jews…”, “The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim”.

Hedaya, the Hanifi school’s code, tells us that “War must be carried on against the infidels, at all times, by some party of the Muslims.”.  “The destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels although they be not the first aggressors”. [Vol. II, Bk. IX, Ch1].

“Some of these actions offered for consideration here will not be seen as ‘political correct’ in the eyes of many,”

It is obvious that General Dempsey and the authors view the content of the course as politically incorrect.

“Ultimately, we can do very little in the West to decide this matter, short of waging total war.”

There is something Western Civilization can do, but it is unconventional and would require a great deal of investment and time.  Islam can be significantly weakened by inducing mass apostasy among the Ummah.  Plant the seeds of doubt & introspection, set the Ummah questioning; induce them to read Islam’s canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence.  Make them think rationally about what they believe and the practical realities of its implementation.

Show the Ummah how Moe plagiarized the Bible & Apocrypha.  Show them how he ‘revealed’ situational scripture to give ‘divine’ sanction to his lusts.  Prove to them that Allah is an impotent idol whose threat & promise are vain.

Begin with production & mass distribution of a full length feature documentary on the life of Moe, based on the Sira & authentic hadith.  At least two scripts are ready for production.  Get it done, translated into Arabic, Urdu & Farsi and distribute it world wide by satellite broadcast & dvd.  Since much of the Ummah is illiterate, it is necessary to distribute the Qur’an & hadith in audio format and multiple languages.

Instead of presenting facts and logical arguments, the authors engage in argumentum ad hominem.

Over the next few weeks, he invited in a trio of guest lecturers famous for their incendiary views of Islam. [Emphasis added.]

What views, and what is false or malicious in them?

Shireen Burki declared during the 2008 election that “Obama is bin Laden’s dream candidate.” In her Joint Forces Staff College lecture, she told students that “Islam is an Imperialist/Conquering Religion.” (.pdf)

Islam is not a religion, it is a Deen: way of life, with a religious component that motivates Muslims to engage in genocidal conquest and prevents victims from recognizing the danger.  If it is not imperialistic, then why is Islamic biography & history full of raids, ghazwat, expeditions & conquests?  A sample of the table of contents from The Life of Muhammad is appended for your perusal. 1

Creeping Shari’ah  embedded this disgusting video of Gen. Dempsey calling the course objectionable, educationally unsound & irresponsible.

  • religious freedom & cultural awareness
  • totally objectionable
  • against our values
  • wasn’t academically sound
  • academically irresponsible

Religious freedom applies to legitimate religions: theological entities dedicated to right relationships between men, God and each other; benign, anodyne, beneficent & eleemosynary.  Islam is a predatory way of life contrived for its founder’s personal emolument through the propagation perpetuation of war. Islam preys upon everyone who has not already submitted to it.  To review the documentation of the fatal fact, go to: Islam’s Mercenary Mission and What’s Wrong With Islam & Muslims?

If there is a right to practice Islam, then we have no rights; all our human rights enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and protected by the Constitution are abrogated.  To Islam, our blood and property are not sacred and we have no rights until we become Muslims.  The practice of Islam entails jihad: warfare against non-Muslims.  Allah commanded it, Moe exemplified it, and it is part of an all or nothing package deal, as 2:85 makes clear.

Cultural awareness:  Is the General aware of the content of the culture of Islam?  What symbol is on the flag of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?  What does that symbol represent?  Perhaps the General should read the translator’s footnote to 2:190.

Exactly what is objectionable about accurately naming and describing the enemy when we have been attacked and war is waged against us?   I have no doubt that the objector is a Muslim.  How many Nazis were in our officer corps in WWII?   So why do we enlist and commission the enemy in this war?   Why should we care if the enemy objects to being named and described?

What values?  Do we now value obfuscation, ignorance, irrationality, surrender & submission over victory to make peace, security and justice prevail?

It was not academically sound: it insanely assumed that Islam is reformable.  It insanely assumed that nuking Mecca & Medina would win the war.  But its identification and general characterization of enemy doctrine is sound; based on objective factual reality.

The attitude displayed by Gen. Dempsey indicates to me that he might be better suited to writing for Wired than leading the Chiefs of Staff.

One response to “Islamophobia: Red Meat for Wired Truth Haters

  1. Left wingers who passionately hate is more like it…. Anyone supporting Islam is the enemy of the free world and should NOT be tolerated, and the supporters tried for sedition, period!
