Jaws: Lessons from 1975 on How NOT to Keep Safe from Jihad

jaws-30th-anniversary-edition-20050617034819744

Tonight the movie Jaws is on AMC.

Jaws was a blockbuster hit in 1975 based on the best-selling novel by the late Peter Benchley.

The storyline is about a Great White shark that stakes out its territory off the coast of a New England resort town named Amity. Bathers and swimmers start getting attacked and eaten right as the 4th of July tourist bonanza begins.

The Chief of Police and a marine biologist try to convince the Mayor of Amity to close the beaches until the shark can be killed. The mayor ignores their warnings and, sure enough, more people die as a result.

The Mayor refuses to recognize the threat and treats his police chief and the marine biologist as if they were crazy for even suggesting that he close the beaches. His myopia results in dead voters.

There is a lesson here relating to today’s threat from Islam, both in the form of civilizational Jihad and violent Jihad.

In this analogy, the criminally myopic and irresponsible Mayor of Amity is represented by elected and appointed officials in the West who either refuse to recognize the existential threat to Western civilization posed by Jihad or recognize the threat, but deny it publicly.

We’re not just talking about President Obama here, though he certainly personifies the West’s inadequate response to Jihad. It is now abundantly clear that Obama’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood run broad and deep.

But Obama isn’t the only one to blame. He is essentially implementing the policies he always said he would implement. The people who voted for an support Obama are to blame.

But not just the voters are to blame.

Take Secretary of State John Kerry, for example. He is responsible for the mythology that Jihad is founded in poverty, despite there being no evidence to back up this supposition. To make matters worse, he is leading the charge to strike a horrible bargain that will guarantee that the world’s most active state sponsor of terrorism, Iran, achieves its goal of becoming a nuclear power.

From this point forward, let John Kerry be forever known as the father of the Iranian Bomb.

Kerry’s predecessor, Hillary Clinton, is also a villain. Hillary and Bill’s close and extensive financial ties to the Saudis, Qataris and other nefarious Gulf interests are enough to make even the Bush family green with envy.

Then there is the soon-to-be departed attorney general Eric Holder, who refused to even utter the euphemism “radical Islam” under congressional questioning and then shut down the follow-on to the Holy Land Foundation prosecution, letting Muslim Brotherhood fronts such as CAIR and ISNA, who were named unindicted co-conspirators in that terrorism case, off scot-free. Holder may be the worst villain of all and should be pursued for prosecution on a variety of charges for malfeasance during his long tenure at the helm of Justice.

But there are plenty of Republicans to blame, who sat by and let all this happen, with scarcely a word of protest.

There’s John McCain, who cooperated with Obama in setting the stage for Libya to descend into chaos, opening an opportunity for Jihadists and then repeated the same mistake in Syria.

John Boehner is a villain as well, because he rolled over for Obama repeatedly, then teamed with Marco Rubio and the aforementioned McCain in criticizing members of their own Republican caucus who questioned Hillary Clinton consort Huma Mahmood Abedin’s longstanding and proven ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

All of these people personify the Mayor of Amity from Jaws. They all want the rest of us to believe that the shark isn’t out there, or that it isn’t dangerous. They have differing motivations, but the result is the same: the West is vulnerable and under assault.

 

A Digest Debunking the “Poverty Causes Jihad” Myth

Marie-Harf

Given that State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Monday night that the U.S. needs to focus on the “medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups,” such as “lack of opportunity for jobs” we feel compelled to comment. Harf went on to say:

“We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”

There is so much delusion in Harf’s statement that we could fill volumes analyzing her profound ignorance. The old yarn that poverty is the root cause of Jihad is a favorite of the Left in the West, and Secretary of State John Kerry in particular.

We were going to write up a post refuting the contention that the key to stopping Jihad is “jobs” but given that many others have covered this subject extensively, we figured that the best service we could provide would be to provide a digest of some of the best work on the subject over the years…

Kerry’s ‘Poor Jihadist’ Myth

It’s time to put to rest the canard that terrorism “grows out of a climate of poverty.”   

 

Paul Weston: Standing Up for Western Civilization

Churchill-Memorial-Pictures-395-cropped

On March 5, 1946, Winston Churchill delivered one of the most significant speeches of the 20th century at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri.

That speech is considered by many to represent the first acknowledgement in the West of the inevitable conflict with the Soviet Union that became known as the Cold War.

The most important quote of that speech altered the vocabulary of geopolitics for generations:

“From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the continent.”

There is another quote for which Winston Churchill is famous, a quote not from a speech, but from a book that he wrote in 1899, The River War:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.

The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property (either as a child, a wife, or a concubine) must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.

Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science (the science against which it had vainly struggled) the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

While many dislike this passage from Churchill, anyone who has traveled extensively in the Islamic world or seen the simmering Islamic ghettos of 21st century Europe up close would have a tough time refuting the sentiments Churchill articulated 116 years ago.

Winston Churchill was one of the greatest intellectuals of all time and a giant for the cause of freedom over the course of his lifetime. He was no bigot and his thoughts on Islam were surely not borne of prejudice.

Today, many believe that Europe is going dark under a different form of an iron curtain descending like a cloak over life there–and most Europeans, especially European leaders,–are clueless as to the threat. That threat comes from Islam, both in the form of Shariah and Jihad.

Luckily, not all European leaders are clueless.

paul-weston-croydon

Paul Weston of the Liberty GB party in the United Kingdom is such a man. He is one of the few–but growing number–of British officials who recognize the security, cultural and civilizational threat posed by Islam. Moreover, Weston is light years ahead of his American counterparts in identifying and understanding the threat.

Unfortunately, Weston and those like him have a tremendously difficult uphill battle ahead of them. Why?

Not because of the advanced stage of Muslim infiltration into British society, but because of obstacles to freedom and liberty imposed by his own government. There is an object lesson in this for the rest of Western Civilization because we are seeing the the same obstacles crop up virtually everywhere else.

What are we talking about?

Well, in April of 2014, Mr. Weston was arrested just for giving a speech in Hampshire, England. The contents of his speech were deemed to constitute religious and racial harassment.

What exactly were those contents? Here they are:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. 

The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property (either as a child, a wife, or a concubine) must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. 

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. 

Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science (the science against which it had vainly struggled) the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

That’s right. In 2014, Paul Weston was arrested on the streets of England for reading aloud the words of the greatest British prime minister of all time, Winston Churchill.

We are truly through the looking glass.

Basis in Islamic Jurisprudence (Shariah) and Scripture for Execution of Jordanian Pilot

“Indeed, those who disbelieve in Our verses – We will drive them into a Fire. Every time their skins are roasted through We will replace them with other skins so they may taste the punishment. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted in Might and Wise.”

Quran Sura 4:56

In the burning scene video the Islamic State gave the Islamic edict straight from the top Islamic authority of Ibn Taymiyya’s jurisprudence:

“So if horror of commonly desecrating the body is a call for them [the infidels] to believe [in Islam], or to stop their aggression, it is from here that we carry out the punishment and the allowance for legal Jihad”

Ibn Taymiyya was one of the most esteemed Sunni Islamic scholars of all time. He is considered one of the originators of the Hanbali school of Shariah. He originated the practice of declaring Jihad on Muslims who did not follow the Shariah based on the belief that they were not true Muslims, despite their claims to the faith.

A Few Words on “Radical,” “Extremist,” Ideology and Doctrine

By Christopher Holton

Over the past few months we have heard increasing calls for the Obama administration to “call the enemy what it is” or “identify the enemy by name.”

It is true that you can’t defeat an enemy you don’t identify.

These calls are invariably followed up by naming the enemy. Only the names assigned to our enemies seem to always be wrong. A few of the wrong names:

• Radical Islam

• Islamic extremism

• Radical Islamic extremism

• Islamist extremism

• Radical Islamist extremism

The problem with all these names is that they are names that we in the West have made up to describe our enemies. They don’t use any of them. No member of the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, HAMAS, Hezbollah, Lashkar e Taiba, the Taliban, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab or Abu Sayyef ever refers to himself as “radical” or “extremist.” No where in their communications will you see the modifiers “radical” or “extremist.”

They don’t subscribe to radical Islam or Islamist extremism.

In fact they claim that the basis for what they do is simply Islam. Every Jihadist organization bases its actions on Islamic scripture. Maybe they got it wrong, but seeing as THEY think that have it right, we best understand THEIR version of Islam if we are truly going to understand our enemies.

According to their own words, they are all Islamic Jihadis. That’s what they are and it’s what they call themselves.

We didn’t make up names for the Nazis in World War II. There were no “radical Nazis,” or “Nazi extremists.” There were only Nazis.

Today we have Islamic Jihadis.

And Islamic Jihad has a doctrinal basis in Islam. Which brings me to the next section of this posting.

Ideology or Doctrine?

I am hearing references to “radical” Islamic ideology on the news more and more. I try to avoid the term ideology. Jihad is based on doctrine, not on ideology and Jihad is what we’re confronted with. There IS a difference between doctrine, ideology and theology.

Doctrine is TAUGHT. For instance, Biblical doctrine is defined as those things that are taught from the Holy Bible. Islamic Doctrine is based on the Quran, the Hadith and the Sirah.

6183g0glblL

Ideology and theology, on the other hand, are man-made disciplines, fields of study. Many people do not see the difference between doctrine and ideology/theology. However, there is a substantial difference in how the two are developed in a practical way and it is important that we make the distinction.

Islamic doctrine is the teaching that comes directly out of the word of allah and is founded on the very words believed by Moslems to be spoken by allah and the life of the prophet Muhammed. To teach doctrine is to begin with full faith in the words of the Quran, the life of Muhammed in the Hadith and Sirah to dig out all that Islam says about a subject, and to organize that material in the way that best agrees with the approach that allah himself makes on the subject.

Ideology, by its nature, puts greater emphasis on systems built by man. In the Islamic context, ideology tends to begin with a man-made system and then goes to Islamic scripture for support, while doctrine begins with the scripture.

This is important because ideology can be explained away as man-made perversions of Islam, whereas, doctrine by its very definition cannot be disowned…

Islamic doctrine is embedded into Muslims from the time they can talk and read.

Jihad is an integral part of Islamic Doctrine. It is not part of some ideology that someone ginned up. It’s been there right from the start.

Make no mistake, Jihad is what is being waged against us, not “terrorism.” And our enemies are Jihadis not terrorists. This is not a war on terrorism. It is a defensive war against Jihad.

Lying Liars Lying Yet Again About the Taliban

By Christopher Holton

Two Taliban Jihadis getting ready to behead a Polish hostage. Note the flag in the background. If you can’t tell the difference between this setting and those of EVERY OTHER JIHADIST organization in the world, then you aren’t qualified to work for President Obama

Obama and his Obamanistas have told so many outright lies about the Taliban over the years that we can now devote a lengthy article to it.

It started way back in 2008 when Obama was campaigning for the presidency. Back in those days he was saying that Iraq was a sideshow and that President Bush had “taken his eye off the ball.” According to Obama, the good war was in Afghanistan and he was going to concentrate on Afghanistan, where the Taliban were fighting US forces, when he got to be president.

That turned out to be campaign rhetoric. Sure, he pulled out of Iraq first, but, let’s face it: Obama never really went hard in Afghanistan and now he’s abandoning that fight, just as he abandoned the fight in Iraq.

Pretty soon into his administration, the Obamanistas started the meme that the Taliban weren’t actually our enemy. This predates the latest supposition that the Taliban aren’t terrorists by several years.

Two lies there. The Taliban are America’s enemy and they are also terrorists.

In December 2013, the Taliban published the autumn edition of their magazine, Azan.

This was the fourth issue of the magazine and was significant in that it called for Muslims in the West to launch attacks at home or fight on foreign battlefields, urging recruits to even leave behind their children or elderly parents:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/al-qaeda/10503925/Taliban-magazine-urges-jihad-and-profiles-the-Honda-125.html

If calling on Jihadis to launch attacks in the West doesn’t amount to terrorism, nothing does.

Such calls to Jihad and other propaganda are nothing new, so why was this particular publication worth mentioning here?

Because it had been released just a few days after the Obama administration was quoted saying that “the Taliban are not our enemies and we don’t want to fight them.”

http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2013/11/27/karzai-will-sign-agreement-with-u-s-says-obama-administration-claimed-taliban-not-our-enemy/

Such statements about the Taliban were nothing new from the Obama administration. Vice President Joe Biden told Newsweek magazine the same thing almost exactly two years before:

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/12/vp-biden-says-that-the-taliban-per-se-is-not-our-enemy/

Not only are these statements from the Obama administration disheartening because our troops have been fighting Taliban Jihadis for a decade, they also demonstrate a profound ignorance about Jihadist doctrine.

Jihadist doctrine does not regard nationalities or international borders as significant. Under their doctrine, Jihad is to be waged to make Allah’s law and religion supreme around the entire world. With their fall Azan magazine, the Taliban clearly demonstrate adherence to that doctrine with their call for Muslims in the West to launch attacks at home.

What’s more this is not something new from the Taliban. When they seized power in Afghanistan in 1996, they announced that Afghanistan was to be a launching pad for global Jihad and invited Jihadi fighters to come to their country. Jihadis from all over the Islamic world and even parts of the West and the Pacific Rim heeded that call and gravitated to the new Shariah-ruled outpost established by the Taliban regime.

Among those who relocated to Afghanistan was Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. We know the rest: Al Qaeda launched its attack on America from Afghanistan and the Taliban harbored Al Qaeda from the US when America sought to bring justice down on them.

How anyone can look at these facts and conclude that the Taliban are not our enemy is mind-boggling. The idea that the Taliban want to strictly limit their evil designs to Afghanistan is absurd. Yet that has been the policy of the Obama administration for years. It is a policy of lies.

And, yes, despite what the Obamanistas might claim, the Taliban are in fact terrorists.

Actually, we don’t believe that it makes sense to get too wrapped up in labeling them “terrorists.” Terrorism is a tactic, a method of warfare. The warfare that the Taliban–and the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Lashkar e Taiba, HAMAS, Al Shabaab, Boko Haram and a host of other groups–are waging is called Jihad. In Islamic law, Jihad is defined as warfare to establish the religion:

http://terrortrendsbulletin.com/2013/01/13/cairs-new-disinformation-campaign-on-jihad/

All of the groups mentioned above, including the Taliban, are Jihadis.

But it is still NOT true that the Taliban haven’t engaged in terrorism and they are not just “armed insurgents” like the bodyguards of lies in the Obama administration maintain.

Just 6 weeks ago, on December 16, the Taliban slaughtered 153 people–mostly young school children–in a terrorist attack on a school in Pakistan.

Taliban have also been involved in terrorist plots and activity on US soil:

• In May of 2011, six people, including two Imams at a Florida mosque, were indicted for providing material support to none other than the Taliban:

• Faisal Shahzad, the Jihadist who attempted to detonate a Vehicle-Born Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) in New York’s Time Square in May 2010, was trained at a Taliban camp and, according to Attorney General Eric Holder himself, “the Pakistani Taliban was behind the attack…We know they helped facilitate it. We know they probably helped finance it and that he was working at their direction.”

• Najibullah Zazi, an Afghan-American who pled guilty in a plot to bomb the New York City subway in 2009, traveled to Afghanistan to join the Taliban when he was recruited by Al Qaeda to go back to America to attack targets in the US homeland. This shows the continued, close cooperation and collaboration between the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

http://www.investigativeproject.org/case/345

Most recently, there are new reports from Leftist NBC News that hundreds of Taliban fighters have joined the Islamic State, which is becoming a greater factor in the southwest Asia region.

The Obamanistas try to make a distinction between the Taliban in Afghanistan and the Taliban in Pakistan. But not even NBC is subscribing to that nonsense. No one in the world outside the Obama administration believes that the Taliban in Pakistan and the Taliban in Afghanistan have nothing to do with each other.

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/isis-pakistan-afghanistan-taliban-fighters-sign-commanders-say-n296707

The Taliban are committed Jihadists. As such, they are undoubtedly an enemy of America. They have killed and wounded thousands of US GIs in combat over the past decade and they have, from the time they originally seized power in Afghanistan to today, involved themselves with other Jihadist organizations from around the world, all of which are classified as “terrorist” organizations. Jihadis do not limit their scope based on political borders; their stated goals are global. To say that the Taliban are not the enemy of the United States or are not terrorists is to demonstrate a profound ignorance of the doctrinal basis for the threat from Jihad. When that ignorance comes from the executive branch of the US government, it can only be described as frightening.

 

JIHAD ISN’T ALL ABOUT ISRAEL

By Christopher Holton

If you listen to some political pundits on both sides of the aisle, you might get the misimpression that Jihadists target America and America is viewed negatively in the Islamic world because of our support for Israel.

The problem with that line of thinking is that ignores some 1400 years of Islamic doctrine.

Each Jihadist terror organization around the globe has a specific goal in mind and that is the formation of an Islamic state ruled by Shariah.

This is very important to understand because this is a common goal of all the major Jihadist organizations across the world. It is shared by Al Qaeda, HAMAS, Lashkar e Taiba, Abu Sayyaf, Jemaah Islamiyah, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab and others and transcends any localized disagreements over borders and pure politics.

Israel could evaporate tomorrow and the overriding goal of the formation of Islamic states ruled by Shariah would not change a bit.

Those who blame Jihad on Israel need to ask themselves some important questions:

  • Did ISIS wage Jihad in Iraq and Syria to establish an Islamic state ruled by Shariah law because America supports Israel?
  • Did the Jihadist terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria kidnap 300 young girls this spring because America supports Israel?
  • Did the Taliban seize power in Afghanistan in 1996 to establish an Islamic state ruled by Shariah law because America supports Israel?
  • Did the Jihadist terrorist group Al Shabaab attack the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 2013, killing 67 innocent civilians, because America supports Israel?
  • Did the Jihadist terrorist group Lashkar e Taiba launch terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India in 2008, killing 154 innocent civilians because America supports Israel?
  • Did the Jihadist terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah bomb resorts in Bali, Indonesia in October 2002, killing 202 innocent civilians because America supports Israel?
  • Did Chechen Jihadist terrorists massacre 334 people, mostly school children, in Beslan, Russia, because the US supports Israel?
  • Did Jihadist terrorists with the group Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) detonate a bomb in Marrakesh, Morroco in April 2011, killing 17 innocent civilians, because America supports Israel.

Of course, the answer to each and every one of these questions is no and the questions and answers prove a point. Jihad is truly global. Tragically, it is one of the most successful “exports” in the world over the past decade.

None of the regions mentioned above have a thing to do with Israel. Most don’t have anything to do with America.

The doctrine behind global jihad is over a thousand years old. In other words, the jihadist doctrine has been around far longer than America has even been in existence.

The Jihadists are not motivated only by our actions. They don’t just react to what we do. They have their own reasons for waging violent Jihad which have nothing to do with America, Israel or anything that you or I have any control over.

The quicker our politicians—both Democrat and Republican—gain a full understanding of this, the better.

Jihadi Attack in Paris

Major jihadi attack in Paris at headquarters of publication that ran satire on Mohammed.

If you satirize Jesus, Christians may protest or even boycott your business. If you satirize Mohammed, your life is in danger. There is no freedom of speech or freedom of expression in Islam.

Muslim leaders will condemn the terrorist attack, but watch and listen to their statements carefully: there will be no defense of freedom of speech or freedom of expression. There will even be suggestions that the victims brought this on themselves.

We have seen that before haven’t we?…

This is what is known as COMPLICITY.

This is not the first time this has happened and this is a major Jihadist attack. We shall see how the US news media covers this story now that a press outlet has been targeted…

New York City Axe Attacker “Obsessed” with Jihad

Islamist-Axeman-MAIN

Actually, the story linked below at Fox News says the New York City axe attacker was obsessed with “radical Islam.”

And that is mainly the subject of this post.

It comes as no surprise that Zale Thompson was motivated by Jihad. A few observers tried to say that he was motivated by race but the mode of attack made it abundantly clear that he was a Jihadi.

One thing that Zale Thompson almost surely was NOT obsessed with or motivated by, was “radical” Islam. The NYPD intelligence unit analyzed his internet search habits and found 277 relevant terms:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/interactive/2014/11/11/intelligence-assessment-on-nyc-hatchet-attack-suspect/

Note that the word “radical” does not appear in the list of search terms. Anywhere. Nor does the word “extremist.”

“Radical” and “Extremist” are terms that WE have made up to describe the enemy.

They have no meaning in the enemy doctrine and the enemy does not recognize or use them.

The terms they use are clear in Zale Thompson’s search terms:

• Jihad

• Islam

Isn’t it about time we quit making up names for the enemy we face?

Did anyone refer to “radical Nazis” or “Nazi extremists” in World War II? Or did we just call them Nazis?

Just my 2¢…
