Islamic Jihad 101- A Patriot’s Introduction Pt. 7
[This is the 7th of 7 Jihad articles; start with the 1st one here]
As you know from the news, Iran is not cooperating with United Nations attempts to examine the true nature of Iran’s nuclear program. Why would Iran want to conceal the goals of its nuclear program if the goal of that program is actually peaceful? Iran’s Islamic regime insists that its nuclear program is purely peaceful in nature. Iran’s support of Jihad by proxy beyond its borders is well documented. The American Government insists on economic sanctions and on diplomatic solutions. Does the American Government not know, as we do, the Islamic Doctrine of Deception? Islamic Jihad requires Iran to cover-up the true nature of its nuclear program if the goal of that program is in fact non-peaceful, in furtherance of Jihad. If the program is peaceful, why does Iran not give full cooperation to the United Nations? I’ll go out on a limb here and say Irans nulcear program does not have peaceful goals, eh?
“The War on Terror is Over”
Now, in April of this year a State Department official told the National Journal that “The war on terror is over. Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.” The State Department official apparently knows something most of us have missed. Let’s examine that statement in light of what we have learned thus far.
How can the war on terror be over? Did Islamic literalists (JIHADISTS!!) suddenly receive a new revelation from Allah that the Koran does NOT require Jihad against infidels? Did a missing page or two from the 1400-year-old Koran suddenly turn Islam into a religion of “peace” because somebody inserted it as the last page of the Koran? Of course not, what we have is a plain and simple attempt at Islamic appeasement. It is based on a fantastical view of Islam as some lefty feel-good “can’t we all get along”-type religion.
Unless all so-called Muslim “extremists” have honestly denounced the concept of Jihad then Jihad against non-Muslim governments continues. We know from the 9/11 Commission Report that untold thousands of Jihadists recruits were trained at Al Qaeda training camps. Are these Jihadists all dead? If not, they are still a clear and present danger to all non-Muslims. Finally, the very idea that former potential Jihadists have an opportunity for “legitimate Islamism” betrays a very disturbing lack of knowledge about true Islam; a knowledge that we have gained from this series of articles. What the State Department terms “legitimate Islamism” is an Islam that does not exist.
To be clear, the American government does not dictate what is and is not Islam. Only the Koran and how it is interpreted by Muslims dictates what Islam is. The literal interpretation of the Koran as long taught by and to so-called “extremists” will not change simply because a non-Muslim government wishes it to be so. As long as Islamic Jihadists live on this Earth we, the American people, must be ever vigilant against the threat to our very lives.
In the end, the simple message is that Islamic Jihad presents a very real danger to American society.
