“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone;
it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” —Patrick Henry

Terrorism – IslamoFascism

“Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil” —Thomas Mann

The chance of your child being killed by a radicalized refugee is tiny.
The chance that someone else's child will be killed is 100%.

“It is disturbing to note that radical Islam fits into our definition of “liberal.”
Islamists do not believe in original sin, regard themselves as an elite group,
and expect to achieve a prosperous and peaceful world by global conquest.
Marxism and Islam have so many tenets in common that some sort of alliance or hybridization
is frighteningly likely, especially in black or third-world communities.”
—Paul Shlichta in The Roots of Liberalism and Conservatism

Islam – The Undeniable Truth
A quick video lesson in the history of Islam
Brigitte Gabriel [March 15, 2016] [16-mins]

“Mohammed is God's apostle.
Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another”
Quran 48:29

Islamists do not consider Islam a religion at all!
Here is the Univ.of Southern California Muslim Students Assoc. description of Islam:
"Islam is the name of a way of life which the Creator wants us to follow. We avoid the word religion because in many non-Islamic societies, there is a separation of "religion and state." This separation is not recognized at all in Islam: the Creator is very much concerned with all that we do, including the political, social, economic, and other aspects of our society.  Hence....
Islam is a complete way of life

“Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components.
The religious component is a beard for all the other components.” —Don Morris, Ph.D.

The Life of Muhammad:
An Inconvenient Truth
Now Includes the Myths of Muhammad

“Why are we not constantly exhorted, day after day,
that Christianity, or Judaism, or Hinduism, or Buddhism,
or Scientology are 'misunderstood'? Why only Islam?” —Raymond Ibrahim

Alexis de Tocqueville on Islam
"I studied the Quran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction that
by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad.
As far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and,
though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion more to be feared,
and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself."
--Alexis de Tocqueville (1805 – 1859)

Why Obama insists on calling the
Islamist Terrorists “ISIL”

“We love death. The U.S. loves life. That is the big difference between us.” —Osama bin Laden

What Is 'Islamofascism'?
A history of the word from the first Westerner to use it.
Stephen Schwartz

“Most Westerners do not understand that Islam is not a religion
in their true understanding of what the word means.
Islam is a political and social ideology that will never submit to a secular form of government.
Islamists will wait until such time as they are able to transform societies into
Sharia-dominated ones, giving citizens a Taliban-type government.” —Michael Youssef

One cannot be hyper-tolerant toward the hyper-intolerant.

Jihad v. The Crusades
Whenever you’re dealing with an apologist for Islam, or even a Muslim,
 and you bring up jihad, almost immediately, they kickback to you:
“But what about those terrible crusades?
Why they’re the moral justification for jihad and we’re just as bad as they are.
So let's not talk about jihad, okay? Let’s talk about the Crusades.” Yes, let's.

Islamic Depictions of Mohammed
Mohammed Image Archive
Medieval Muslim artists often created paintings and illuminated manuscripts depicting Mohammed in full.
Several examples are presented here. Other artists of the era drew Mohammed,
but left his face blank so as to technically comply with a sporadically enforced
Islamic ban on depicting the Prophet; these faceless images are shown in the second section of the Archive.

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.”

The 5 Principles of Islam
Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam. All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy – Koran, Sira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions). Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology. Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs.

De Facto Shariah Law in America
Muslims enjoy more Freedom of Religion than non-Muslims

Janet Levy
A close look at recent events points to some alarming conclusions about the
tenets of shariah law taking hold in our once-proud constitutional republic and
the unwitting, unequal application of existing U.S. laws.

What is Islamization?
Nicolai Sennels, psychologist
Islamization is a phenomenon that has existed since the Muslim prophet Mohammed lived 1,400 years ago. The word ‘Islamization’ was originally coined by Muslims to describe the conversion of a kufr (infidel) society to an ‘enlightened’ (Islamic) society. One road to Islamization is to remove non-Islamic traditions and symbols.

Bernard Lewis on Islam's Inherent Totalitarianism
Many attempts have been made to show that Islam and democracy are identical – attempts usually based on a misunderstanding of Islam or democracy or both... In point of fact, except for the early caliphate, when the anarchic individualism of tribal Arabia was still effective, the political history of Islam is one of almost unrelieved autocracy. [Bernard Lewis]

What Would Muhammad Do?
(a check list)
Life is full of tough choices for Muslims. Do you behead or not behead? Have adult relations with your buddy's 9-year-old child...? Take a female sex slave... ? For followers of the RoP, it all comes down to knowing what Muhammad did when faced with the same decisions. In fact, the more you know about the founder of Islam the better, even if you aren't Muslim.

Understanding Taqiyya —
Islamic Principle of Lying for the Sake of Allah

Warner MacKenzie
Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur'an and Sunna, including lying under oath in testimony before a court, deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a “religion of peace”.

Islam's Doctrines of Deception
Raymond Ibrahim
To better understand Islam, one must appreciate the thoroughly legalistic nature of the religion. According to sharia (Islamic law) every conceivable human act is categorised as being either forbidden, discouraged, permissible, recommended, or obligatory.

JIHAD is the Islamic doctrine of aggressive war waged with the purpose of subjugating all non-Islamic peoples to the political and legal authority of Islam. It covers virtually all manner of crime with the shield of piety by blessing massacre, plunder, enslavement and treachery if these are judged necessary in the cause of Allah. There is nothing like it in Christian civilization. Its roots lie in the very antiquity of Islamic civilization, and though it is surely true that not all Muslims have committed themselves to JIHAD, it is also true that the doctrine is at least latent in all Islamic societies. As such, it stands as an inevitable threat.

11dec23 Why Isn't There a Palestinian State?
David Brog
Why don't the Palestinians have their own country? Is it the fault of Israel? Of the Palestinians? If Israel just allowed the Palestinians to have a state of their own, there would be peace in the Middle East, right? That’s what you hear from UN ambassadors, European diplomats and most college professors. But what if I told you that Israel has already offered the Palestinians a state of their own – and not just once, but on five separate occasions? Don’t believe me? Let’s review the record.

22oct23 It’s Islam, Stupid
Daniel Greenfield
Beslan. Mumbai. Paris. Manchester. New York City. Nairobi. Luxor. Sulu. Kibbutz Be’eri. 186 children murdered in a school in Beslan. Dozens of children taken hostage from a Catholic school in the Philippines. Two teachers were beheaded, but not the girls. “We do not kill women. We will just enslave them,” the Jihadists promised. 8-year-olds gunned down in the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. The terrorists asked their victims to name Mohammed’s mother to tell apart the non-Muslims from the Muslims.
14oct21 CAIR’s ‘Journalist’s Guide to Reporting on Islam and Muslims’: Fooling the Fourth Estate
Stephen M. Kirby
On August 23, 2021, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a new edition of “A Journalist’s Guide to Reporting on Islam and Muslims.” Unfortunately, for journalists who have an interest in truly understanding Islam, CAIR’s “guide” will only lead them astray. Here are some examples from the Journalist’s Guide that act to misguide instead of to guide.
17nov19 France: An "Inverted Colonization"
Dr. Guy Millière
In debates on television, veiled Muslim women invited to speak say that wearing a veil is their "choice" and that the French must "adapt to Islam". One of the organizers interviewed on television said: "Muslims in France are suffering under growing persecution. They want to forbid us to be Muslims. France is our country. Those who do not like it must go elsewhere. "
16jul19 Eastern Europe’s ‘Subconscious Fear’ of Islam:
The Siege of Vienna, 1683

Raymond Ibrahim
It is this history of Islamic aggression – beginning in the fourteenth century when Muslims first established a foothold in Eastern Europe (Thrace), and into the twentieth century when the Ottoman sultanate finally collapsed – that informs Eastern European views on Islam.
10jan19 The Truth About Thomas Jefferson's Koran
Jim ONeill
The copy of the Koran that Jefferson owned was translated by George Sales in 1734. You will recall from the quote of Sales that began this article that he believed that “Providence has reserved the glory of [Islam’s] overthrow” to the Protestants. Hardly a Kumbaya sentiment of multicultural solidarity. So why would these Congressional Muslims use a Quran that is admittedly designed to “overthrow” Islam? In a word -- ignorance.
17oct17 Why There is No Peace in the Middle East;
“There is no honor in peace”

Philip Carl Salzman
Peace is not possible in the Middle East because values and goals other than peace are more important to Middle Easterners. Most important to Middle Easterners are loyalty to kin, clan, and cult, and the honor that is won by such loyalty. There was no group and no loyalty above the tribe or tribal confederation until the rise of Islam. With Islam, a new, higher, more encompassing level of loyalty was defined.
23jul17 No Trespassing On Islam!
Dave Merrick
Bit by bit a frightened America is opening its arms and bowing before the takeover by bullying Islam. These “peace loving” Muslims have marched in our streets threatening beheading to those who dare to insult their Allah. And in our collective silence we are inviting their dominance.
14jul17 Jihad Means More Than "A Peaceful Self-Struggle"!
Maher Gabra
The jihad against oneself and Satan is the struggle to be a good Muslim and follow Allah. However, jihad against infidels and hypocrites is more than a self-struggle. It is an effort to change the situation on the ground. Such jihad could be executed through four different means: by oneself (fighting in the way of Allah), by money (funding those who fight), by one's words (speaking up against oppressors or infidels), or by one's heart (that is, by hating the evil and feeling that it is wrong).
26jun17 Europe Surrenders to Radical Islam
Guy Millière
The United Kingdom is not the main Muslim country in Europe, but it is the country where, for decades, Islamists could comfortably call for jihad and murder. Although most jihadist movements were banned by the British government, more discreet organizations have emerged and demurely spread the same message.
24feb17 Should Islam be Restrained in the United States?
Robert Klein Engler
Human sacrifice in Mexico as part of a religious ceremony and animal sacrifice in the U.S. approach the practical limits of freedom of religion. What about Islam and its beliefs and practices? Do the beliefs and practices of Islam approach a practical limit or do they go beyond that limit? What we know about Islam leaves many Americans wondering how practical is it to give Constitutional protection to a religion whose adherents have sworn to kill Americans in their own homes.
20feb17 The Muslim Brotherhood: Wellspring of Terrorism
Judith Bergman
The founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan Al-Banna made jihadist violence a focal point of his movement. He wrote, "Death is art" and "Fighting the unbelievers involves all possible efforts that are necessary to dismantle the power of the enemies of Islam." The MB inducts members into its deliberatively secretive and opaque network with the pledge that "Jihad is our way" and "Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
9feb17 What Is the Muslim Brotherhood?
Thomas Quiggin
A variety of groups ascribe to the Islamist objective of imposing their politicized beliefs on others. Included in these are ISIS, al-Qaeda and Hizb ut-Tahrir. However, the largest and best organized of all the Islamist groups is the Muslim Brotherhood. They are the well-spring from which the Islamist ideology flows.
17jan17 The Islamization of France in 2016 – A Chronology
"France has a problem with Islam"

Soeren Kern
The Muslim population of France was approximately 6.5 million in 2016, or around 10% of the overall population of 66 million. In real terms, France has the largest Muslim population in the European Union, just above Germany. What follows is a chronological review of some of the main stories about the rise of Islam in France during 2016:
9jan17 The Islamization of Britain in 2016 – A Chronology
"The realistic future for Britain is Islamic."

Soeren Kern
Islam and Islam-related issues, omnipresent in Britain during 2016, can be categorized into five broad themes: 1) Islamic extremism and the security implications of British jihadists in Syria and Iraq; 2) the continuing spread of Islamic Sharia law in Britain; 3) the sexual exploitation of British children by Muslim gangs; 4) Muslim integration into British society; and 5) the failures of British multiculturalism.
2jan17 The Islamization of Germany in 2016 – A Chronology
"Germany is no longer safe."

Soeren Kern
Mass migration from the Muslim world is fast-tracking the Islamization of Germany, as evidenced by the proliferation of no-go zones, Sharia courts, polygamy and child marriages. Mass migration has also been responsible for a host of social disruptions, including jihadist attacks, a migrant rape epidemic, a public health crisis, rising crime and a rush by German citizens to purchase weapons for self-defense – and even to abandon Germany altogether.
31dec16 The Soviet-Palestinian Lie
The Gatestone Institute - Judith Bergman
"The PLO was dreamt up by the KGB, which had a penchant for 'liberation' organizations. First, the KGB destroyed the official records of Arafat's birth in Cairo, and replaced them with fictitious documents saying that he had been born in Jerusalem and was therefore a Palestinian by birth." – Ion Mihai Pacepa, former chief of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Romania.
7nov16 Who We Are As a People – The Syrian Refugee Question
Imprimus – Edward J. Erler
Note that these leaders show no such enthusiasm for admitting Christian refugees from Middle Eastern violence, or even Yazidis, who have suffered horribly from the ravages of Islamic terror. These refugees, of course, represent no danger to America. Only by admitting those who do represent a danger can we display to the world “who we are as a people” – a people willing to sacrifice ourselves to vouchsafe our commitment to tolerance.
3sep16 Islam and the West’s Death by ‘Freedom’
Selwyn Duke
It has often been noted that some among us use our freedoms to destroy our freedoms. George Soros, a real-life James Bond villain, comes to mind; other leftist entities such as the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center also qualify, as they sue Americans into shedding Americanism. Another example is a group they aid and abet: Muslim conquerors bent on winning the West for Dar al-Islam.
21aug16 The Reason That Liberals Hate Christianity, but Ignore Islam
One of the things that’s frustrating for non-liberals and non-Progressives is Leftists’ refusal to look Islam in the face (so to speak). Yes, there are crazy people who are Christians and there are entire Christian sects that are crazy ... The fact remains, however, that Christians as a whole, whether they belong to big churches or small ones, do not embrace or practice terrorism to achieve their political or religious goals.
13aug16 Why Does Obama Call ISIS 'ISIL'?
Amil Imani
Many who closely follow the dueling Islamic terror narratives emanating from the White House are mystified by Mr. Obama's inability (or deliberate unwillingness) to utter the phrase "Islamic terrorists." Many are curious, too, about why he refuses to call ISIS "ISIS," steadfastly insisting instead that everybody in his administration call the terror group "ISIL." What's the difference, and why is it important?
7aug16 New Mantra To Deny Islamic Terror: ‘Mental illness’
“Where does ‘radical Islam’ end and ‘mental illness’ begin?”

Leo Hohmann
Is “mental illness” the new cover for jihadist attacks on the West? It certainly seems that way, says a noted expert on jihad. “Authorities have ascribed jihad terror to mental illness on numerous occasions,” said Robert Spencer, including the Orlando, San Bernardino and Chattanooga attacks in the United States. Sometimes it sticks, but usually, days, weeks or even months later, when few people are still paying attention, the police will retract their earlier statements and admit it was a terrorist attack.
18jul16 Islam at War with a Delusional, Suicidal West
Matt Barber
Muhammad taught, and the Quran stresses, that a central tenet of Islam is to convert, enslave or kill the infidel. An infidel is anyone who is not Muslim or, depending on who’s doing the killing, belongs to a different sect of Islam. Those who fall into that elusive, perpetually mute category tagged “moderate Muslim” are also infidels or “idolaters.” They’re bad Muslims and, so, according to the Quran, not Muslims at all.
21may16 Islam is Not a Religion, It is Foreign Law
J.R. Dieckmann
The time has come to question if Islam is protected under our First Amendment rights to freedom of religion. Yes, everyone in America has the right to freedom of religion, but Islam is not a religion. Religious faith is only a part of Islam. The rest is a socially engineered society with its own laws and customs that seriously conflict with American law.
26mar16 The United States and Islam: What Is Going On?
Amir Taheri
The irony is that no major power in recent history has gone out of its way as has the United States to help, respect, please and, yes, appease Islam. And, yet, no other nation has been a victim of vilification, demonization, and violence on the part of the Islamists as has the U.S.
22mar16 Islam – Facts or Dreams?
Andrew C. McCarthy
“In any broad sense, Islamic law offers the American lawyer a study in dramatic contrasts. Even casual acquaintance and superficial knowledge – all that most of us at bench or bar will be able to acquire – reveal that its striking features relative to our law are not likenesses but inconsistencies, not similarities but contrarieties. In its source, its scope and its sanctions, the law of the Middle East is the antithesis of Western law.” —Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson in forward to Law in the Middle East, 1955.
20mar16 Misunderstanding Islam
David Solway
We need to remember that Islam may be recessive at times, active at others, but its essence cannot be changed. It is like a volcano that never goes extinct and we are wrong to regard its dormant phases as final. It is always ready to erupt. You cannot reform or re-interpret a volcano, and unless you keep a distance you always risk being buried in the lava of its natal ferocity.
3jan16 Political Scientist:
Islam is Incompatible with America’s Founding

Ginni Thomas
For Muslims in America, “you’ve got a theological, political problem that I think is incompatible with Western democracy” since they do not tolerate the religious liberty of others, says Matthew Spalding, associate vice president and dean of educational programs for Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center in Washington, D.C.
10oct15 Are Mideast Muslims Dying for a Myth?
Mike Konrad
Islam claims that, during his lifetime, Mohammed took a night journey on a flying steed, called al Buraq, to Jerusalem to the Farthest (al-Aqsa) Mosque. The irony is that, according to Muslim sources, there was no mosque in Jerusalem for Mohammed to visit. So why are they fighting over what never was?
17jul15 Peace or Jihad? Abrogation in Islam
David Bukay – Middle East Quarterly
The Qur'an is unique among sacred scriptures in accepting a doctrine of abrogation in which later pronouncements of the Prophet declare null and void his earlier pronouncements. Four verses in the Qu'ran acknowledge or justify abrogation:
6apr15 Differences Between God and Allah
Daniel Boorstin
"There is a vast difference...between the Hebrew-Christian God the Maker and the Muslim God of Fiat." "For a believing Muslim, to create is a rash and dangerous act."
2nov14 “The Management of Savagery”
The “Mein Kampf” of Jihad

Mark Tapson
If there is a positive side to the rise of ISIS, it is that the West has had its head jerked from the sand and has been made to witness a bottomless, bloodthirsty evil: crucifixions, beheadings, enslavement of women, live burial of children, mass executions... as one analyst writes, this violence is not "whimsical, crazed fanaticism, but a very deliberate, considered strategy".
26oct14 You Can't Reform Islam Without Reforming Muslims
Daniel Greenfield
Islam is not an idea. It is a tribe. Talking about reforming the words of Islam is an abstraction. Islam did not begin with a book. It began with clan and sword. Even in the modern skyscraper cities of the West, it remains a religion of the clan and the sword. And if Islam has not changed, that is because Muslims do not want it to.
31aug14 11 Reasons Why ISIS Might Be
More Dangerous Than al-Qaeda

Steven Bucci
ISIS is not just the terror group de jour. They are a hugely successful movement with an apocalyptic, nihilistic philosophy. When they say "convert, join us, or die", they not only mean it, but they follow through with horrific effect. But let's look deeper. What else makes them such a real security threat, to Iraq, to the region, to the world, and to the U.S.? Here are 11 reasons.
25may14 Militant Islam: Enemy of Civilization
William A. Levinson
Most bullies run like rats when you confront them head-on, and this includes the purveyors of the toxic ideology they (not I) call Islam – at least in a civilized country where they cannot run to compliant and/or corrupt jurists who will enforce a speech code. The agenda of using Islam as a cover for a war against human rights, and Civilization itself, stops here, and it stops now.
20apr14 The Roots of CAIR’s Intimidation Campaign
Andrew C. McCarthy
This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist.
3nov13 How Historic Revisionism Justifies Islamic Terrorism
Raymond Ibrahim
How important, really, is history to current affairs? Do events from the 7th century – or, more importantly, how we understand them – have any influence on U.S. foreign policy today? By way of answer, consider some parallels between academia's portrayal of the historic Islamic jihads and the U.S. government's and media's portrayal of contemporary Islamic jihads.
6oct13 In the Name of Islam
Daniel Greenfield
Moments like these put the Clash of Civilizations into bloody context. This isn't abstract politics. It's not about economics, the environment or foreign policy. It's about a worldview in which a five-year-old who can't recite the Islamic confession of faith deserves to be killed. The crime is not being a Muslim.
11aug13 The Crusades Reconsidered
Mike Konrad
One of the idiocies passed off for decades among Western historians is bemoaning the Crusades as evil. The Islamic world – the Ummah – has disseminated this imaginary charge against the West, and like fools, we have absorbed Arab lies and taken the blame to heart. But the most superficial reading of Western history should put that canard to rest.
14jul13 Why Islam is Not a Religion
Rebecca Bynum
One thing we can definitely say about Islam is that is it not solely confined to a belief system. If it is a religion it is not a religion only. Islam is a total system of life and contains within itself a particular social system, judicial system, and political system which includes geo-political aspirations – the conquest and administration of territory.
26may13 Islam vs. Islamism
Daniel Pipes
Islamism accurately indicates an Islamic-flavored version of radical utopianism, an -ism like other -isms, comparable to fascism and communism. Aping those two movements, for example, Islamism relies heavily on conspiracy theories to interpret the world, on the state to advance its ambitions, and on brutal means to attain its goals.
21apr13 Jihad: A Study in Perpetual War Against the West
Kelly O'Connell
The purpose of jihad is to convert, impoverish or kill all unbelievers. It is an essential element of the teachings of Mohammad, and cannot simply be removed from the Koran. Therefore, when are Americans going to take seriously Islam as a threat and figure out a way to defuse its dangerous demand to subjugate the world in the name of Allah?
11mar12 Ignoring Islamo-Fascism at our Peril
Alan Caruba
A great deal of the problem is that Americans believe that Islam is a "religion." Historically, it has been a cult of conquest that merges its belief system with a political agenda in which Sharia law is intended to be imposed throughout the world. Its early, swift spread was based on terror and warfare.
10oct11 CNN says Death Penalty for Leaving Islam is
“nuance” of Sharia Law

Creeping Sharia
CNN is peddling taqiyya from Islamsists in the U.S. who hope Americans will be confused by the circle talk. Legitimate Islamic sources are almost unanimous in what the punishment for leaving Islam should be, as summarized at Answering Islam, THE PUNISHMENT FOR APOSTASY FROM ISLAM:
12jun11 Our Right to Religious Freedom Being Used to Destroy Us
Study Shows 81% of U.S. Mosques Promote Jihad

Frank Gaffney
Most mosques in the U.S. are actually engaged in – or at least supportive of – a totalitarian, seditious agenda they call Shariah. Its express purpose is undermining and ultimately forcibly replacing the U.S. government and its founding documents. In their place would be a “caliph” governing in accordance with Shariah’s political-military-legal code. (Study: 14-pg PDF)
3jun11 More Facts on the Myth of "The Palestinian People"
Michael Brown
In the oft-quoted words of the celebrated Arab-American historian and Princeton University professor, Philip Hitti, testifying before the Anglo-American Committee in 1946, “There is no such thing as ‘Palestine’ in history, absolutely not.” And so, if there was no “Palestine” in the pre-1948 Arab consciousness, there was no Palestinian people.
11apr11 Why Confront Islamism?
Amil Imani
The hodgepodge of Islamic scripture is the medium for generating all kinds of mutations, some of which such as Islamism are extremely dangerous. A segment of any society, at any time, is staffed by people who feel disaffected, alienated, and disenfranchised. It is from the ranks of this population that Islamists heavily recruit.
11apr11 From an Arab Spring to a Muslim Winter
Daniel Greenfield
Our [act of spreading democracy] doesn’t have a good history, and why should it, when each time we go in acting as if democracy is functional, rather than cultural. As if it’s something you practice, rather than believe. You can teach people to count ballots, but you can’t teach them to understand why they count. They have to learn that for themselves.
31mar11 Slavery in Islam
Amil Imani
Islam’s genesis was the Arabian peninsula of the seventh century AD, known for its primitive beliefs and savage practices. So, it is of no surprise that Islam incorporated slavery and much of the ethos of the culture of its birthplace.

Lt. Colonel James Zumwalt, USMC (ret)
As we struggle to understand an Islamic extremist mindset that influences followers to abandon all sense of humanity in a bid to establish a world order ruled in accordance with 7th century sharia law, it is important to recognize when and why this happens. For there is a definitive line over which a good Muslim, gone bad, steps in committing himself to the Islamist cause.
22jan11 The Myth of Peaceful Islam in Bosnia
and the Hidden Islamic Jihad

Lee Jay Walker
The past reality of Islam in Bosnia means that you have no history of harmonious coexistence, because dhimmitude, jizya, pogroms, and the devshirme system was brutal. In Muslim-ruled Bosnia, there were a landed Muslim elite and an Orthodox Christian peasantry.
3sep10 Non-Believers Under Muslim Law
Kelly O'Connell
Discussed in this essay are the laws and status of those persons in Islamic lands who are not Muslims. This group is mainly composed of Jews and Christians, called dhimmis. What is important about this topic is it communicates better than any other method the true historic beliefs of Muslims towards Westerners. Therefore, it indicates how a good Muslim should view a non-believer, especially if they ever achieve control of a formerly non-Islamic state, like America.

10feb10 The Crusades:
When Christendom Pushed Back

Selwyn Duke
Christians in the eleventh century were not paranoid fanatics. Muslims really were gunning for them. While Muslims can be peaceful, Islam was born in war and grew the same way. From the time of Mohammed, the means of Muslim expansion was always the sword.
5apr09 The Quran:

Islam is a religious, political and judicial system initiated in the VIIth century by Muhammad, who claims to be the last prophet, and therefore THE prophet to whom Allah transmitted his precepts through the angel Gabriel. These precepts are compiled in the Quran.

Islam divides the world into two parts. The part governed by sharia, or Islamic law, is called the Dar al-Islam, or House of Submission. Everything else is the Dar al-Harb, or House of War, so called because it will take war – holy war, jihad – to bring it into the House of Submission.
25may08 Islam is Not a Religion Nor is it a Cult.
It is a Complete System.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components. Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’
4may08 Strategic Collapse in the War on Terror
Joseph C. Myers
Our enemy says he is fighting jihad warfare to extend the Islamic faith; the basis of that claim rests on his exegesis of Quranic and Islamic Law injunctions.  Irrespective of whether we or other Muslims accept or deny the legitimacy of his claim, if that is his stated doctrine, then that is the doctrine we must study and comprehend.
4may08 An Anatomy of Surrender
Westerners are Acquiescing to Creeping Sharia

Bruce Bawer
Islam divides the world into two parts. The part governed by sharia, or Islamic law, is called the Dar al-Islam, or House of Submission. Everything else is the Dar al-Harb, or House of War, so called because it will take war—holy war, jihad—to bring it into the House of Submission.
2sep07 In Their Own Words
Newly translated writings of the al Qaeda leadership.

The Al Qaeda Reader, simply by letting our enemies speak in their own voices, explodes the popular delusion that Western crimes and policies are responsible for the “distortion” of Islam that al Qaeda represents.
5aug07 Can Islam ever be Compatible with International Law?
Jay Tolson
Does Islam say that believers who abandon the faith should be punished, even executed? ... The answer, if one is ever forthcoming, will go a long way in determining whether Islam is compatible with the regime of universal human rights set forth in important international charters and agreements.
1jul07 Islam: The Power of “No”
Alan Caruba
What the Arabs of the Middle East offer is what Islam offers, only the peace of the grave if nations and men do not bow down to their threats and violence. It is the power of “no.”
11may07 Al Qaedism, Again
Victor Davis Hanson
For purposes of harming America, lone-wolf jihadists need only to feel the same rage and perceived grievances as their pin-up heroes like bin Laden or Zawahiri.

Islamic Indoctrination in
American Classrooms

Adrian Morgan
"Now that I am Muslim, can I keep my non-Muslim friends that I have known all my life?" The answer was given: "You should try to remain away from mixing with non-Muslims because mixing with them removes your religious zealousness and pride from your heart and may lead you to having love and compassion in your heart for them. ...it is obligatory upon a Muslim to be free of the people of infidelity and to hate them for the sake of Allah."

29apr07 A Lesson In Hate
How an Egyptian student came to study 1950s America
and left determined to wage holy war

David Von Drehle
If you know who Qutb was, and his powerful influence on militant Islamic supremacism, you’re already better informed on the jihad threat than most US citizens; but David Von Drehle’s article contains many details about Qutb’s twisted thinking and insane hatred of Western civilization that will be new.

It's Not Just Osama
Carol Gould
What has happened in Britain in this turbulent year did not surprise me. Those of us who live there, in the ‘coming Caliphate,’ know that the threat is huge, is massively supported and may never be extinguished.


A rare look at the secretive
Muslim Brotherhood in America

Their ultimate goal: create Islamic states around the world including in America.
Chicago Tribune
"Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our model; the Koran is our constitution; jihad is our means; and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our aspiration."
—the Brotherhood slogan.


War Crimes Investigator Says
Al Qaeda Spawned From Nazi Third Reich

“Al Qaeda is the direct lineal descendant of the Arab Nazis of the Muslim Brotherhood"

2apr06 CAIR: Islamists Fooling the Establishment
Daniel Pipes and Sharon Chadha
"the most accomplished fifth column"
in the United States
5mar06 Thinking Like an Arab
Alan Caruba
If it hasn’t occurred to most Americans by now, Arabs don’t think like us. They see the world in very different terms. Rationality, logic, and common sense do not rate high among their priorities.
27nov05 The Truth about Islamic Crusades
and Imperialism

Historical facts say that Islam has been imperialistic – and would still like to be, if only for religious reasons. Many Muslim clerics, scholars, and activists, for example, would like to impose Islamic law around the world. Historical facts say that Islam, including Muhammad, launched their own Crusades against Christianity long before the European Crusades.
11jul05 The Mother of All Connections
A special report on the new evidence of collaboration between Saddam Hussein's Iraq and al Qaeda.

The Weekly Standard – Stephen F. Hayes & Thomas Joscelyn
All of this is new information obtained since the fall of the Hussein regime. And yet critics of the Iraq war and many in the media refuse to see it. Just two weeks ago, President Bush gave a prime-time speech on Iraq. Among his key points: Iraq is a central front in the global war on terror that began on September 11.
10jul05 Validity of Islam
George Mason
Islam depends on the validity of only two fundamental concepts. One is the existence of their super-deity they call “Allah.” The other leg on which Islam stands depends on the legitimacy of Muhammad himself, his character and his proclamations.
2jul05 The Left Revealed
It isn’t often that the Left is forced to reveal itself, but in this transcript of a "Michael Medved Show" segment with David Horowitz and Nation writer Daniel Lazare that is exactly what happens in regard to the Left’s de facto alliance with our terrorist enemies in Iraq and elsewhere.
30jan05 Lying about Iraq
The Federalist Patriot
The principal objective of President Bush's doctrine of pre-emption – Operation Enduring Freedom (or "Operation Let's Roll," as it's known around our shop) – is to keep the front lines of our war with Jihadistan on their turf, rather than our own.
11oct04 The Death Of Liberalism
Raymond S. Kraft
We have created a focal point for the battle now at the time and place of our choosing, in Iraq. Not in New York, not in London, or Paris, or Berlin, but in Iraq, where we did and are doing two very important things.
11sep04 Jihadistan:
A Clear and Present Danger

The Federalist Patriot
Eleven years ago, our homeland became the front line in our war with Jihadistan, that borderless nation of Islamofascists with global reach, inhabited by al-Qa'ida and other Islamist Jihadis targeting the U.S.
20jul04 An Alliance of Evil: Saddam and bin Laden
David M. Huntwork
The degree of the cooperation between Saddam and bin Laden, or more specifically the supposed lack thereof, is one of the two main pillars of the 'Bush lied' bumper sticker slogan crowd.
16jun04 A Question Of Survival
Kim Weissman
Our country faces a unique and very dangerous time, in which sizeable numbers of Americans, including many in positions of power, are actively undermining our nation during war time.
12may04 The American Will
Kim Weissman
Throughout our nation’s history, whenever we have faced an external threat to our existence, we have put aside our ideological differences and united in common cause until the danger was past. Everyone understood that our policy differences were meaningless if our nation itself ceased to exist as a free and constitutional republic.
16jan04 The Illegal-Alien Crime Wave
Heather Mac Donald
Fifty years ago, immigration policy might have driven immigration numbers, but today the numbers drive policy. "Sanctuary policies" generally prohibit city employees, including the cops, from reporting immigration violations to federal authorities.
14jan04 Not Amnesty
Kim Weissman
When you have large numbers of people ready to commit suicide, and ready to do it by making themselves into human bombs, using the most normal instruments of daily life – an airplane, a car, a garage door opener, a cell phone, fertilizer, a tennis shoe – you create a weapon that is undeterrable, undetectable and inexhaustible.
13jan04 What Makes a Terrorist?
James Q. Wilson
Terrorism, however motivated, baffles people, because they cannot imagine doing these things themselves. This bafflement often leads us to assume that terrorists are either mentally deranged or products of a hostile environment.
28dec03 What Are the Arabs Saying About Us Today?
Alan Caruba
Americans keep thinking that, if we can only demonstrate we are trying to help them, Arabs will love us. No, they won’t. For the Arabs, America and the Jews are the sole reason for all their problems.
21dec03 Why Prayer to Allah is OK in Public School
Jen Shroder
Abdurahman Alamoudi, arrested and accused of helping Osama bin Laden and Hamas, helped develop 'Religious Expression in Public School' introduced and incorporated by President Clinton in 1995.
12nov03 Anti-Semitic Attack on Western Civilization
Alan Caruba
Americans and Europeans assume our values regarding human dignity, justice, education, et cetera, come from the ancient societies of Greece and Rome. They do not. They come from Judaism.
5aug03 Venona: What My Father Didn't Know
Alan Caruba
So why don't more Americans know about the Venona project? Ask that question of the liberal mainstream press that, to this day, still slanders the reputation of those brave men who dared to suggest that the Communist Party USA was a threat to this nation and that 'McCarthyism' is still the real threat.
6jun03 The Decline and Fall of Islam
Alan Caruba
None of us will live to see it, but before this millennium is over, Islam is likely to have joined the myths of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome as a religion that was tested and failed.
20may03 McCarthyism – The Right's Badge of Honor
William A. Mayer
Studying past Soviet infiltration may help us understand how our current enemy, radical Islamic terror, may use similar methods in establishing underground networks in furtherance of their aims and how the now in vogue promotion of cultural diversity by the left is so potentially damaging to our security.
26jan03 Has Bush Bitten Off Too Much?
Yes, but So Did Truman

Jonathan Rauch
The pacifist Left is wrong to accuse President Bush of reckless belligerence, but it is right to see him as making a historic choice, one that may ultimately rank with President Truman's.
31aug02 Militant Islam – In a Class with Communism, Fascism
Daniel Pipes
America and rest of the Western world are facing their greatest challenge since fascism and communism: militant Islam. Its goal is to take power and impose its strictures on society.
28jul02 Defend Civilization Itself
Mark Helprin
They say we have no history. Did we spring from a leaf? How do they think we have come through our five thousand years? Honor.
4jun02 Twenty Facts about Israel
and the Middle East
Bill Bennett, Jack Kemp, and Jeane Kirkpatrick
The world's attention has been focused on the Middle East. Can we understand the violence? Yes, but only if we come to the situation with a solid grounding in the facts of the matter—facts that too often are forgotten, if ever they were learned.
5may02 The Massacre That Wasn't
Kim Weissman
Why do we find it necessary to appease the Saudis and mollify the rest of the Arab world so as not to offend the Saudis, and why do we turn a blind eye to sponsors of terrorism, in the face of this sort of hatred of America?
22mar02 Dying to Kill the "Occupiers"
Alan Caruba
"I confess I can no longer hear the word "Palestinian" without seeing it drip with the blood of their own insanely suicidal killers of ordinary citizens of Israel, infants, men and women, old and young alike."
12mar02 Remembering September 11, 2001
Amid the smoking ruins of the twin towers, you could see the silhouette of the Statue of Liberty holding that torch of liberty very proudly and very high. It's that flame of liberty that these people want to extinguish.
4mar02 The Terrorists You Don't Hear About
Tom DeWeese
This group was responsible for an attack that resulted in a $5.3 million loss in 2001... the third most destructive only to the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks and only one of 137 acts for which it claimed credit.
13feb02 Think like a Muslim
Daniel Pipes
Students, especially in public schools, should approach Islam in a critical fashion - learning the bad as well as the good, the archaic as well as the modern. They should approach it from the outside, not as believers, precisely as they do with every other religion.
13feb02 God and Mammon:
Does Poverty Cause Militant Islam?
Daniel Pipes
Militant Islam (or Islamism) is not a response to poverty or impoverishment; not only are Bangladesh and Iraq not hotbeds of militant Islam, but militant Islam has often surged in countries experiencing rapid economic growth.
3feb02 Geneva Convention
Kim Weissman
If the people making that argument (those from the "my mind is made up, don't confuse me with the facts" school of non-thought) would take the simple step of actually reading the document that they want to invoke, the Geneva Convention, they might have some second thoughts.
16jan02 Islam's Insanity
Alan Caruba
The answer has to be that a state of total insanity exists among the Muslim scholars and the whole of Islam that permits them to ignore reality, ignore history, and continue to call for a holy war.
15dec01 The Arab Legacy of Hate
Dr. Samuel L. Blumenfeld
When in 1948 the United Nations voted in favor of a partition plan to divide Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states, Arab leaders rejected it. And so, when the British finally departed from Palestine, leaders of the Jewish community declared the restoration of Israel as a sovereign state.
3dec01 Detention, Treatment, and Trial of Certain Non-Citizens in the War Against Terrorism
Kim Weissman
The unfortunate reality is that, in our justice system, justice often takes a back seat to left-wing victimology, racial demagoguery, and courtroom theatrics.
30nov01 Islam Vs. the World
Alan Caruba
The enmity the drives Muslims is best captured in the counsel of the Koran that says, "Oh believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them. God guides not the people of the evildoers."
26nov01 Learning to Trust Again
Alan Caruba
Our domestic enemies are not massing troops somewhere. They are living among us as our neighbors. How many are loyal Americans? We simply do not know!
19nov01 National Focus
Kim Weissman
At least five different attacks on six different American targets by the same terrorist group within less than a decade, even before September 11. But the Clinton administration during those years was more interested in dismantling Microsoft than in dismantling al Qaeda.
18nov01 Unchanging Leftists
Kim Weissman
Seems that the ACLU and the New York Times are more solicitous of the alleged "civil rights" of foreign terrorists than the Constitutional rights of American citizens.
5nov01 A Half-Hearted Kind of War
Vin Suprynowicz
A war of half-measures only allow the enemy to take heart, progressively adopt to our tactics, and increase his recruiting by bragging that if he has survived an encounter with the world's "sole remaining superpower," imagine what he could do with a few thousand more volunteers.
4nov01 The Long Road Ahead
Kim Weissman
We are in the opening stages of a war, a Holy War to radical Muslims, soon to be using all the modern weapons of war, fighting for the very survival of western civilization.
31oct01 "Jihad" In Their Own Words
Eugene Narrett, Ph.D
It is timely to consider the meaning and goals of this phenomenon of "Jihad" we've heard so much about. What does Islam's ideology of Jihad mean in fact? Of the 30 active wars in the world today, 28 are in Islamic nations.
31oct01 America, Home of the Scared?
Alan Caruba
Time for this nation to get over being the home of the scared and get back to being the home of the brave. We are at war!
28oct01 The Empire of Oil
Alan Caruba
There are forces at work in our war on terrorism that have as much to do with insuring that America and the West has the oil it needs, as they do with protecting this nation against the more obvious threat of Islamic militancy.
18oct01 Barbarians at the Gate
Steve H. Hanke
Don't make the mistake of interpreting the events of Sept. 11 purely in terms of terrorism and murder. There is a bigger context here. There is more to this story — much more.
17oct01 History Is the Root Cause of Everything
Diane Alden
It is a fact that the rise and fall and rise of great religions goes through phases. The fact is that Islamist religionists brought religious warfare to the United States.
15oct01 Progressive America-Haters Take Off Their Masks
Peyton Knight
They emerge from the basements of their secret societies, shed the camouflage of the "progressive" label, and crawl out from under the rock of the safe harbor the Democratic Party provides.
14oct01 Islamic Silence
Vin Suprynowicz
It is not America which has prevented any Palestinians from settling in Jordan or anywhere else in the Arab world, nor which prevents the Palestinian majority in Jordan -- formerly Palestine -- from living in security.
13oct01 United We Stand...?
The Federalist
Jihad is a call to ALL Muslims – not just bin Laden's terrorist cadre – and no wide, bright line separates peace-loving Muslims from Islamic extremists.
6oct01 Courage Under Fire
The 21st century's first war heroes
Peggy Noonan
Brave men do brave things. After Sept. 11 a friend of mine said something that startled me with its simple truth. He said, 'Everyone died as the person they were.'
4oct01 The U.S. in Wonderland:
A Place Where Enemies Become Allies
Alan Caruba
Just how strange is it that the three most obvious allies of the United States have been pushed to the sidelines of the Bush administration's grand coalition to fight terrorism, while those who have funded and supported terrorism are being embraced as the ones to fight it?
1oct01 Where Seldom Is Heard
Diane Alden
Christians are getting killed by Muslims all over the world, but America is not supposed to see that. Frankly, I don't care if they don't like our foreign policy.
29sep01 God Is Back
Peggy Noonan
I was thinking the other day: In 1964, Time Magazine famously headlined "God Is Dead." I hope now, at the very highest reaches of that great magazine, they do a cover that says "God Is Back."
27sep01 Islam: The Endless Jihad
Alan Caruba
[Historian] Fregosi characterized Jihad as 'essentially a permanent state of hostility that Islam maintains against the rest of the world.' Many other historians have seen Islam in this light as well.
26sep01 Homeland Defense Is You and Me
Diane Alden
The fact is that sometimes 911 is us. The government might help prepare each and every citizen loyal to this country for what may come. They can empower us to defend ourselves and then allow us to do so.
23sep01 This Will Be A Knife Fight
Dr. Tony Kern, Lt Col, USAF (Ret)
This war will be won or lost by the American citizens, not diplomats, politicians or soldiers. This war will escalate, with a good portion of it happening right here in the good ol' U.S. of A.
16sep01 100 Question and Answers about Arab Americans:
A Jounalist's Guide (Detroit Free Press)

Like all people, Arab Americans are too often described in simplistic terms. Although the Arab culture is one of the oldest on Earth, it is, in many parts of the United States, misunderstood.
15sep01 Dead or Alive
Increasing airport security will do nothing to prevent a well-planned aerosol dispensing of anthrax spores at a Super Bowl game – or any of the other nuclear, biological or chemical threats. We must strike the nations that harbor these terrorists and strike them hard.
13sep01 The Partisans of Yesterday have
Patriot Blood on Their Hands Today

This momentous event, the worst terrorist attack in world history, caps the tragedy of years of appeasement of rogue nations and terrorists, appeasement that reached a zenith during the eight years of Bill Clinton's administration.
30aug01 The True Believer 2001
The Rise of Islam and Communism
Alan Caruba
"The true believer is everywhere on the march, shaping the world in his own image. Whether we line up with him or against him, it is well we should know all we can concerning his nature and potentialities."
