This is a “guest post” by Sheik Mohamed ali-Baba, a well known Islamic scholar, “humanitarian,” redistributionist and spokesman for al Qaeda. My own comments follow his rant.
I, Sheik Mohamed ali-Baba, graced these otherwise perverted and insignificant pages last year with my endorsement, on behalf of Al Qaeda, of President Obama for reelection. Our endorsement was crucial in securing his reelection — there could have been no other conceivable reason for his success. His light continues to shine upon us, and ours upon him. May that continue as long as your otherwise vile nation shall continue to exist, Insha’Allah.
Otherwise, God Damn America, as your beloved President’s spiritual advisor for twenty years proclaimed!
President Obama never understood what his spiritual advisor said but always appreciated his mighty fine whines.
I should like to present to you, oh unworthy infidels, this rebuttal of the barbarous and scurrilous slanders continuously spouted by conservative bloggers to the effect that Islam is evil and seeks world domination by whatever violent means may be necessary. We do not seek violent conquest; the need for it has been thrust upon us. I refer only to “conservative bloggers;” libruls know their place and that is very healthy for them. For example,
In a series of high-profile incidents, Islam has been depicted as the underdog facing conservative “extreme haters.” That was the case whether it was the Ground Zero Mosque, the so-called anti-Islam YouTube video, ads in subways or anything to do with Israel.
Fortunately, the so called “religion” of Christianity is often treated accurately and fairly by the legitimate media.
Scandals in the Christian community have long been reported with vigor and zeal, and blame is firmly placed on faith groups like the Catholic Church. TV shows such as ABC’s now-cancelled network comedy-drama “GCB” (an abbreviation for “Good Christian Bitches”) and syndicated talk go out of their way to mock the faithful. And news outlets highlight “Christian” criminals whenever possible—remember how quick they were to blame a Norway mass shooting on a “Christian extremist.”
Fortunately as well, many in the librul educational establishment are of much the same mind, as they should and must be. All false religions must be defeated and then tolerance of Islam will come swiftly, followed by acceptance and soon by absolute obedience. Islamism is the only true Religion of Peace®! Other so called religions may try to pervert our registered slogan for their own false purposes but they are fakes and seek the horrors of war rather than the beauties of our true peace. They insult Mohamed in disgusting ways that require us, under the Divine teachings of the Holy Qur’an, to kill them lest they further injure their own damnable souls. We are kind and generous people, as our holy religion commands.
Those who seek to defame our Prophet must be silenced! H/t Counter Jihad Report:
Even some unworthy girls born into Islam, thanks always be unto Allah as revealed by His prophet, may his holy name be praised throughout the universe for ever, Insha’Allah, defy and hence defile the teachings of our Holy Prophet. The young wretch mentioned in this libelous article obviously offended the Holy Prophet, and hence the Divine Allah, by having sexual relations with a male human who had not taken her in marriage. She must therefore be punished and the punishment to be administered, a mere one hundred lashes in public, is so generously mild that she will soon — and probably soon after it begins — forget all about it and never commit that or any other sin ever again.
Why, oh why, do you infidels persist in offending the almighty Allah? Have you no decency or at least sense of self preservation? Can’t we all just get along? The times are changing! Live with it and come to relish it as we do. You will be happy that you did. This video from 2011 was, of course, prophetic as to the course of our beloved Arab Spring.
If you will simply learn to believe and hence to obey, we won’t have to hate you. Don’t worry about us, though, we will hate and fight the savages of Israel until Allah and our earthly allies destroy them.
Till then, oh Israel!
The next video has three skits. [“Editor’s note:” The first is the best.]
Thus must end the sermon for today. I am already late for a meeting scheduled with your Commander in Chief, Honorary Imam Obama.
The attempts of my “guest author,” Sheik Mohamed ali-Baba, to defend and support his religion are, of course, specious; like his religion. They illustrate either a total lack of humanity or a view that only those who yield their bodies, minds and spirits to their Prophet Mohamed are human. It matters little which it may be.
Multicultural “tolerance” may view all cultures as fungible and as deserving of respect and blame. However, many of our own multicultural types seem to view our own culture as deserving of more blame and less respect than those of our enemies.
We went through that sort of nonsense during the rise of Hitler in Germany. Remember Joseph Kennedy, FDR’s ambassador to the Court of St. James (Great Britain)? While there he opposed aid to Britain against Germany. He also appeared to have a wide streak of antisemitism:
According to Harvey Klemmer, who served as one of Kennedy’s embassy aides, Kennedy habitually referred to Jews as “kikes or sheenies”. Kennedy allegedly told Klemmer that “[some] individual Jews are all right, Harvey, but as a race they stink. They spoil everything they touch.” When Klemmer returned from a trip to Germany and reported the pattern of vandalism and assaults on Jews by Nazis, Kennedy responded, “Well, they brought it on themselves.”
On June 13, 1938, Kennedy met with Herbert von Dirksen, the German ambassador to the United Kingdom, in London, who claimed upon his return to Berlin that Kennedy had told him that “it was not so much the fact that we want to get rid of the Jews that was so harmful to us, but rather the loud clamor with which we accompanied this purpose. [Kennedy] himself fully understood our Jewish policy.” Kennedy’s main concern with such violent acts against German Jews as Kristallnacht was that they generated bad publicity in the West for the Nazi regime, a concern that he communicated in a letter to Charles Lindbergh.
Kennedy had a close friendship with Nancy Astor. The correspondence between them is reportedly replete with anti-Semitic statements. As Edward Renehan notes:
As fiercely anti-Communist as they were anti-Semitic, Kennedy and Astor looked upon Adolf Hitler as a welcome solution to both of these “world problems” (Nancy’s phrase)…. Kennedy replied that he expected the “Jew media” in the United States to become a problem, that “Jewish pundits in New York and Los Angeles” were already making noises contrived to “set a match to the fuse of the world”.
I wonder how many in the modern pro- “Palestinian,” anti-Zionist, brigades have similar feelings.
During and for a while after WWII, there were many in the U.S. Government who sympathized with Stalin’s Russia and transmitted useful information on U.S. policies as well as military and industrial secrets. The link is to a review of The Haunted Wood: Soviet Espionage in America — The Stalin Era.
Paradoxically, by the 1950s, when McCarthyism was at its height, Stalin’s spy network in the United States had already been crippled due to the end of the Russian- American wartime alliance; the heroic defections of former couriers Igor Gouzenko, Elizabeth Bentley, and Whittaker Chambers; and improved FBI counterintelligence. “In the end,” the authors conclude, “the enduring legacy of those Americans who sacrificed country for cause in ‘the haunted wood’ remains one of inglorious constancy to a cruel and discredited faith.” One hopes that future revisions of this superb volume will more fully assess just how much damage these traitors did to their country.
Multiculturalism notwithstanding, both good and evil exist in the world. Were the evils of rampaging Islam Triumphant limited to places where only stone age savages exist and can slaughter only each other it would be almost, but even then not quite, tolerable; there is no hermetic seal that can contain Islam. As the sickness spreads throughout Western civilization it becomes absolutely intolerable; and spread it has and does. The state sanctioned murder of young girls who are raped is a matter of “honor” to them. It is far beyond the pale of civilized conduct as we use the term. However, there have been “honor killings” (not state sanctioned) in the United States as well as in England and Europe. It is a symptom of a fatal disease that, unless it is to overwhelm even the West, must be eliminated. Like nuclear weapons in the hands of such religious fanatics as control Iran, it cannot be contained.
President Obama may believe that we are not “at war” with Islam. He may be right but if so only because he has spent the last more than four years doing his
worst best to make it so. No matter what words of endearment he may use toward Islam they will never love us. He should by now have realized that his 2009 Cairo speech made us appear to be weak — and perhaps to become even weaker — in their eyes and even our own.
Obama said he sought a fresh relationship “based upon mutual interest and mutual respect” and “based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition.”
“I am convinced that in order to move forward, we must say openly the things we hold in our hearts, and that too often are said only behind closed doors,” Obama said. “There must be a sustained effort to listen to each other; to learn from each other; to respect one another; and to seek common ground.”
We should be at war with Islam because Islam is at war with whatever may still remain of our Western civilization. We will be at war with Islam eventually and my only question is whether by the time that we recognize that we are it may be too late. In the meantime, we are told that we must fight fiercely against our greatest threat in the Pacific region, the Climate Change demon. Perhaps doing that is “safe;” Climate Change won’t nuke, gas, behead or otherwise harm us; but real “demons” can and may well do so unless they first destroy our culture in more subtle ways.
The entire Middle East has become a simmering cauldron into which the region’s only free, democratic and non-Islamic nation, Israel, may soon be tossed. Will she come to resemble Poland after subjugation by Hitler’s Germany in 1939? Something worse? What then?
Perhaps in a misguided spirit of even-handedness we are arming the Muslim Brotherhood’s Egypt as “anti-Islamist activist” protestors prepare to mass against the Morsi Government in response to additional repressive decrees thought likely to be issued. We are also supporting “opposition” forces in and proximate to Syria.
According to this article in the NY Times,
With help from the C.I.A., Arab governments and Turkey have sharply increased their military aid to Syria’s opposition fighters in recent months, expanding a secret airlift of arms and equipment for the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to air traffic data, interviews with officials in several countries and the accounts of rebel commanders.
The airlift, which began on a small scale in early 2012 and continued intermittently through last fall, expanded into a steady and much heavier flow late last year, the data shows. It has grown to include more than 160 military cargo flights by Jordanian, Saudi and Qatari military-style cargo planes landing at Esenboga Airport near Ankara, and, to a lesser degree, at other Turkish and Jordanian airports.
As it evolved, the airlift correlated with shifts in the war within Syria, as rebels drove Syria’s army from territory by the middle of last year. And even as the Obama administration has publicly refused to give more than “nonlethal” aid to the rebels, the involvement of the C.I.A. in the arms shipments — albeit mostly in a consultative role, American officials say — has shown that the United States is more willing to help its Arab allies support the lethal side of the civil war.
To whom and what are those “opposition” forces opposed? We don’t seem to know.
“The outside countries give us weapons and bullets little by little,” said Abdel Rahman Ayachi, a commander in Soquor al-Sham, an Islamist fighting group in northern Syria.
He made a gesture as if switching on and off a tap. “They open and they close the way to the bullets like water,” he said.
Two other commanders, Hassan Aboud of Soquor al-Sham and Abu Ayman of Ahrar al-Sham, another Islamist group, said that whoever was vetting which groups receive the weapons was doing an inadequate job.
“There are fake Free Syrian Army brigades claiming to be revolutionaries, and when they get the weapons they sell them in trade,” Mr. Aboud said.
The former American official noted that the size of the shipments and the degree of distributions are voluminous.
“People hear the amounts flowing in, and it is huge,” he said. “But they burn through a million rounds of ammo in two weeks.”
The pot is already boiling as Syria implodes. Assad, no friend of the West but at least having his own interests in stability, may or may not be dead. Do we know? I don’t.
We dilly-dally around in negotiations with Iran over nuclear weapons even after years of negotiations have proved fruitless for us. They have worked well for Iran as it continues substantially unimpeded by sanctions or otherwise to amass the materials and technology needed for such weaponry. North Korea makes no secret of its own creation and testing of nuclear weaponry and of the missiles that may be needed to deliver them. Nor does it seriously try to hide its relationship with Iran under which it sells its technology to Iran and may sell the materials necessary to use it as well.
As Germany amassed armaments and developed the technology of war during the 1930s, in gross violation of the Treaty which was hoped to have brought “peace in our time” following WWI, England and much of Europe tried appeasement. If peace in our time was the goal, as it probably was, it did not succeed. In consequence, Hitler’s Germany had ample time to raise a nascent air force and to equip a navy with the submarines it later used to attack allied shipping while it gained additional “lebensraum.” When war came, we and Europe had much “catch up” to do. It would have been far easier and far less bloody even a year or two earlier to have forced Germany to stop before it got to that point, but we did not. With massive efforts and very many deaths, it was possible eventually to defeat Germany and not long afterwards, Japan. Have we reached or passed that point as to Islam? If we haven’t yet, when will we?
