FROM “THE PARALLAX PROPHECIES”
In the middle of last week we wrote an article (“in between the lines of the Parallax Prophecies …..”) on “What the President SHOULD Say to Islam” in an attempt to elevate the rhetoric about the dismal foreign policy of the Obama Administration as it pertains to the uprising in the Middle East in particular and radical Islam in general. One of our readers pointed out to us in responding to the article that the de facto President doesn’t have the power to declare war on a country without Congressional approval, which we advocated in our article, and he is right. It is patently unconstitutional, but nevertheless, that didn’t stop Clinton from declaring war in Bosnia and that didn’t stop Obama from declaring war in Libya…without Congressional approval. In contrast to Clinton and Obama, Bush did receive Congressional and UN approval to go into Afghanistan and Iraq.
Another reader pointed out that given the current situation in the Middle East, where 21 countries are now on fire and violently attacking American assets and personnel, an action by the putative President such as we proposed in our article would have started World War III. Both of those readers were right on the mark with their assessments. The truth is, the article was our way of venting and there were a considerable number of readers who agreed with us.
Even though we were off the mark in our approach to Islam with that article, that doesn’t remove the very serious threat of radical Islam to the West and more particularly to America.
The Muslim problem of radicalized Islam is going to be with us for a very long time and could easily precipitate a third world war, even without our intervention. Muslims represent over 20% of the world’s population, estimated to be around 1.6 billion people. Those who practice the radical form of Islam have been estimated to be around 10% of that 1.6 billion, or in the neighborhood of 160 million people. The intransigent, fixated views that radicalized Islam holds have and will continue to come into direct conflict with Western civilization until the Western world will have to deal with it as a culture must deal with any bully. Radical Islam only understands a force greater than they are and will only capitulate to that greater force. The more the Western world tries to placate radical Islam, the more radical Islam will feel empowered to press forward with their radical views and agenda. They now strike at us with virtual impunity and we do nothing. We did that once with Hitler, which led to World War II and an estimated 70,000,000 deaths. Are we destined to repeat history….again? Under the abysmal foreign policy of the current administration, it is almost a certainty.
The greatest danger to America is the insane government policy of political correctness and the refusal to acknowledge that radical Islam presents a clear and present danger to the security of America. If the peaceful element of the Muslim religion does not noisily and forcefully denounce radical Islam, the rest of the Western world will be forced to deal with radical Islam with overwhelming military might.
It is a foregone conclusion that eventually radical Islam will be successful in perpetrating another 911-style attack on America and thousands of Americans will be killed because we refuse to confront radical Islam head-on in the mind where it breeds and in the nations where it exists with overwhelming force. Oh, sure, we have fought wars in the Islamic world, but it is extremely doubtful that we have changed many minds in the process, and in fact, we have only solidified their belief that we are the great Satan and must be taken down. This does not mean, however, that we are against using force when force is required. But using force without the determination to win a clear victory and unconditional surrender by the enemy is a tragic waste of the blood and treasure of our men and women in uniform and a grossly negligent waste of taxpayer funds that support the war.
Ten years to subdue the Taliban in Afghanistan is a testament to a failed military strategy. We seem to be more interested in building a nation in the image of America on the backs of the American taxpayer and pandering to the indigenous people than in conquering our enemies swiftly and with dispatch. We tolerate pandemic corruption, we put up with our soldiers being killed by those we are trying to protect and train, and we capitulate to the dictates of a male-dominated ancient religion that lives in the darkness of ignorance and superstition and gets a particular joy out of brutality and savagery.
Europe is being overrun with radical Muslims and they are making attempts to change European culture. In the fall of 2011, radical Muslims in Switzerland lobbied to get Switzerland to take the cross out of its national flag because it offends Muslims. They didn’t succeed but they will keep trying. French Muslim immigrants riot in the streets, burn cars, damage property and create general mayhem in their un-assimilating enclaves. Radical Islam does not assimilate; its intent is to annihilate those who will not convert to Islam based on the mandates of a book written 1,600 years ago.
The so-called Arab Spring of 2011 and 2012 has exacerbated the Muslim problem in the world. Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen and now Syria are falling to a civilian uprising, promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Queda and other radical Islamic organizations to depose secular dictators in the hopes of establishing a united Muslim Caliphate so that they can wipe Israel off the map and seriously challenge American supremacy. If you doubt their goal of world domination, you ignore reality.
In our own country, there is strong evidence that radical Islam has infiltrated many areas around our military bases and is there to collect “intelligence” to feed back to their radical friends in the Middle East. Instances keep occurring in different parts of America of Muslims discriminating against servicemen in uniform and denying them services in stores which Muslims own.
What goes on in American Muslim mosques is mostly hidden from view. However, the following was uncovered in a recent study of American mosques: (i.e., “Sharia and Violence in American Mosques” (Kedar M, Yerushalmi D., The Middle East Quarterly, Summer 2011, Vol. 18, No. 3, pp. 59-72)
“The survey found a strong correlation between the presence of severe violence-promoting literature and mosques featuring written, audio, and video materials that actually promoted such acts. By promotion of jihad, the study included literature encouraging worshipers to engage in terrorist activity, to provide financial support to jihadists, and to promote the establishment of a caliphate in the United States. These materials also explicitly praised acts of terror against the West; praised symbols or role models of violent jihad; promoted the use of force, terror, war, and violence to implement the Sharia; emphasized the inferiority of non-Muslim life; promoted hatred and intolerance toward non-Muslims or notional Muslims; and endorsed inflammatory materials with anti-U.S. views… [O]f the 51 mosques that contained severe materials, 100 percent were led by imams who recommended that worshipers study texts that promote violence. “
“[M]osques containing violence positive materials were substantially more likely to include materials promoting financial support of terror than mosques that did not contain such texts. A disturbing 98 percent of mosques with severe texts included materials promoting financial support of terror. Those with only moderate rated materials on site were not markedly different, with 97 percent providing such materials.”
“These results were comparable when using other indicators of jihad promotion. Thus, 98 percent of mosques that contained severe-rated literature included materials promoting establishing an Islamic caliphate in the United States as did 97 percent of mosques containing only moderate rated materials.”
This is going on right under our noses. Radical Islam is among us and we seem oblivious to the threat.
What is even more disturbing is our putative President is groveling at the foot of the Islamic world in order to win them as “friends” of America when there is no chance of getting them to denounce their radical views and actions. An embarrassing demonstration of Obama’s attempt to appease the Muslim world was his speech in Cairo shortly after his election. In that speech he apologized for America and stated that America was a Muslim nation. Any president who bows down to another nation or leaders of another nation, or bows to the will of a threatening culture is a sign of criminal weakness, and such a person should have never become president in the first place. Further, these traitorous actions by a sitting president are a direct threat to American security.
If you have not already done so, we encourage the reader to listen to Obama’s Cairo speech HERE and see for him or herself that this man is not only unqualified to be president, he puts America in further danger by showing radical Islam that we are peace-loving, non-profiling Americans and that we will bend over backwards to appease and pander to our enemies.
In a previous article we wrote the following: “If there were no bullies or mad men with power in the world, there would be no need for war. Therefore, to not confront the bully (or madman) with equal or a greater force is to agree to be enslaved and be forced to endure whatever the bully wishes to inflict upon you. Since bullies and mad men with power are a fact of life and have been since civilization began, then for a government to not be prepared to confront the bully with an overwhelming force is negligence, bordering on treason.”
This statement applies equally to all enemies of America and freedom, foreign or domestic.
If the government will not protect the American people against the threat of Islam, then it is up to the people to protect themselves by whatever means. It literally boils down to the survival of a free America or the establishment of a slave state under the savagery of Sharia law in place of constitutional law. As you think of what this means, think of all women being dressed in burqas and not being able to go to school, drive a car, or hold positions of power. Think about a law that sanctions rape of women in marriage as being perfectly legal. Think of a woman being raped and having to have four witnesses to prove it. Think of the radical schools your kids will be required to attend where Islam and Sharia law will be the only subjects. Think of a state-established religion that forces everyone to convert to Islam, or suffer horrible punishment and even death. That is radical Islam. To the men of America, is this what you want for your women and children? Would you not lay down your life to see that this never happens, or will you watch as your women and children become slaves to religious fanaticism?
Ladies and gentlemen, our very survival as a free nation may mean profiling. It may mean the injustice of calling out people who are perfectly innocent in order to expose those who would harm us. It may even mean vigilante justice. The tragedy is that none of this would be necessary if the government lived up to its obligation and solemn, constitutional duty to protect the American people against all enemies, foreign or domestic. But how can government do that if it refuses to recognize and acknowledge that radical Islam is the enemy? How can it do that when it allows open borders and floods the country with those who would do us harm? How can it do that when it looks the other way when American interests and personnel are attacked by radical Islam in foreign lands, or on the open sea? Delayed justice is no justice at all, and there is way too much delayed justice by our government when it comes to confronting an enemy that will do everything in its power to destroy us. We’ve seen this movie and it doesn’t end well. What will the ending be this time?
The nagging question which we often ask ourselves is “Which will take down America first, the foreign enemy that is Islam, or the domestic enemy that lives and breathes in our own government?” We will, in the end, be forced to fight both with equal determination.
Next Sunday, the Parallax Prophecies column will ask the question, “Could This Be Evidence of Obama Treason? – The Pakistan Connection.” You won’t want to miss the possibilities we have uncovered and the nagging questions these possibilities raise as laid out in the mysterious revelations of Amil’s brother.
