Here's something I snagged from my daily reading. No, not the latest Pat Condell video, but the text below. Take it at face value, it won't bite.

So the problem lies not with the Muslims who commit savage acts of violence in the name of Islam, but with the filmmakers who point out that Muslims commit savage acts of violence in the name of Islam? And the solution is to ban freedom of expression in the name of protecting freedom of expression? What a fascinating exercise in double-think!

As a secular person born into the Shiite faith, I say send all those Moslems back to where they came from if they don't like the Western culture of personal freedom and that of free expression. For the life of me I do not understand why Westerners put up with this hypocisy. Do you think they would extend the same courtesy to you? I don't think so.

What Moslems need is the same reformation Christians went through several centuries ago. All religions must be defanged for the sake of sanity and humanity.

Poster in Amsterdam apparently without incident

THE NETHERLANDS IS SUFFERING from Koran fever, but Amsterdam seems not to be affected. The Tropenmuseum has put up some two hundred posters of an Iranian Koran throughout the city, as part of an image campaign. There has been hardly any response.

The Netherlands is in commotion because of the plans of anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders to show a movie about the ‘Fascist’ Koran. That the Koran posters of the Tropenmuseum appeared during this controversy is a coincidence, for the posters were planned months ago.

Still, previous attacks on the Koran did play a role in the decision to choose this subject for the posters. “We wanted to show what kind of book it is”, says Dimitry van den Berg, the person at the museum who is responsible for the campaign. “But the most important reason to show this Koran was simply that it’s a very beautiful object”.

Van den Berg had expected that the Koran posters would elicit responses, but this was hardly the case. “Maybe a few people asked how to obtain the poster, but not more than usual”. Also, there are no indications that the posters have provoked more vandalism than usual. Some asked whether the man on the poster represents Muhammad, but that is not the case.

The campaign targets the so-called ‘cosmopolitans’ as defined by the Motivaction agency: people with an international orientation, often high-educated and with an interest in culture.

Previous analyses had revealed that the visitors of the museum mainly consist of cosmopolitans, post-materialists (idealists who vote Green Party) and post-modern hedonists (focusing more on experiences). Especially among cosmopolitans new visitors might be recruited, it was thought.

However, this did require some work on the museum’s image. Some people still associate the Tropenmuseum with colonialism, a stuffy Third World centre or educational activities for children, Van den Berg says. The current campaign intends to show that the museum has beautiful objects that have an interesting story to tell.

All posters show an authentic object against the background of a story painted by a contemporary artist. In the case of the Koran, the painting shows a man who consults a Mullah on which woman to choose. The Mullah reads the Koran and concludes that the woman on the right is the right one for him.

On the occasion of exhibitions on Morocco and Turkey, the Nieuwe Kerk organised activities to attract ethnic minority visitors. The Tropenmuseum does not engage in ethnomarketing, says Van den Berg. “We try to select themes that appeal to all Dutch people, including the new Dutch”.

The campaign will run until the end of this year. By then it will be evaluated whether the image of the museum has in fact changed.

Every time someone calls Muslims on their violence, repression, and murderous spasms of terrorism, the person pointing out the obvious is derided as "racist" or "stirring up trouble." Really? Is it racist to wonder how Muslims managed to pick fights with Thailand? Or the Phillipines? Or to point out that the old reel about how people who question the average Muslim's tendency to immediately fly off the handle and start killing people whenever their "sacred" beliefs are questioned just need more "education" about Islam falls on its face when it turns out the more you learn about Islam, the move obvious the roots of terrorism become?

I could fill a library (which would probably be immediately burned down by suicide bombers) with all the failed rationalizations spewed by Western apologists for Islamic terror.

1) Terrorism is "just caused by poverty and lack of options." Last sighting of this excuse: sometime around when a bunch of British Muslim doctors tried to blow up Heathrow.

2) Terrorism is a "natural" reaction to things that may or may not have happened hundreds of years ago, like the Crusades or the "loss" of Spain. Last sighting of this excuse: Right around the time Muslim terrorists started attacking Thailand, which contrary to some accounts actually did not join King Richard in his march on the Holy Land.

3) Terrorism is a response to the invasion of Iraq. Last sighting of this excuse: Right around the time Muslim terrorists started attacking the Phillipines, which doesn't exactly have a huge presence in the Middle East (unless you count all the Filipino housemaids trapped in servitude there).

The list goes on and on. The excuses keep changing, but the blazingly obvious tie between Islam and terrorism remains the same. Why? Well, as Fitna points out, the Koran REQUIRES it of Muslims. This is quite different from the "Uh, the Bible has bad stuff too" saw - the Bible recounts ancient historical detail, while the Koran mandates violence of its modern day adherents. That's precisely why Islam has cornered the world market on terrorism in a way that would have world monopolists like Microsoft or ALCOA green with envy. And, of course, if you point it out then Muslims prove your point by killing you over it.

But you knew this. Really, the interesting question is why Westerners are so insistent on avoiding the obvious and twisting themselves into little knots about how there is some secret reason for constant Islamic violence besides, you know, the ISLAM part. My suspicion: cowardice. After all, if you acknowledge the problem, you might have to actually confront it, something that was bred out of Europeans in the 1950s. It's easier to just pretend it's the fault of the tolerant, open society, rather than the repressive 7th century political ideology that respects nothing but its own edicts. Fools like Mr. Nielsen are betraying centuries of Western enlightenment out of some perverse "respect" for a violent movement that has zero respect for them. It'd be hilarious if the end results aren't sure to be so tragic.

Writes some misunderstander of the times in which he lives:

But let me ask you this. How do the Dutch plan to transport them out? Will it be in ships, like King Ferdinand did to Jews in 1492? Or should we transport them in cattle cars, as Hitler did in 1942? Never again means never again for anyone. THAT'S why Fitna and "Fitna logic" deserves widespread condemnation.

He is aptly reproved by this crusader:

If you really bothered to understand the film, you would realize it is a protest against the minority of radical Muslims who are causing all the problems and a wake up call to the silent majority of Muslims who do nothing to oppose the Islamic supremacist terrorism that is based on the Koran by the violent terrorists. Fitna logic? The cold hard fact is that every country has its own culture and historically has expected immigrants to adopt the culture to which it is arriving. Why should Muslims be any different because a few of them are violent and cannot synthesize the fact they are not overlords and special cases as their "noble koran" insists they are.

Dozens of Islamic websites gleefully show the same pictures of violence shown in Fitna, supported by the same warfare quotations from the Qu'ran. So where is the culpability now?

We have the usual apologists and nut jobbers who try to defend this Islamic rage against Fitna by saying that somehow we who are free haven't been 'educated' (i.e., not brainwashed) about Islam, or they simply lie about the facts at hand.

Here are some facts:

(1) A Muslim cleric declared "The Jews are the Jews. They are the ones who must be butchered and killed."

(2) Interspersed with images from the July 7 bombings in London are pictures of the placards of radical British Muslims. "Be prepared for the real holocaust" is the slogan carried by one woman in a burqa.

(3) Another Muslim cleric gives us a REAL education about his religion: "The day will come when we rule America. The day will come when we rule Britain and the entire world."

Please take note. These are MUSLIMS making these remarks (NOT Jews, Christians, Zorastorians, Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, Homosexuals, et al.). Bottom line is that these dolts who are attacking Fitna or the Danish cartoons or just about anything that point out indisputable facts are admitting how hateful it is when it is Muslims themselves—using these same those texts from the Qu'ran—who are spewing this hate.

But like the self-hating bigots they are, these limp-wristed apologists blame those who point these rather easily observable facts out o the general public.

Wake up, my friends! How many more Theo Van Goghs (who was actually murdered), Pim Fortuyn, Salman Rushdies, Setptember 11s, train and nightclub bombings, et cetera, have to be suffered before we wake up to what is really going on with the Muslim world.

The Muslim cleric tried to "educate" us as to his meaning, if you have the ears to hear, and the eyes to see: Muslim leadership is planning to overrun the West and take away our hard-won freedoms. They plan to force innocent young girls into a life of slavery via forced marriages, genital mutilation, stonings and whippings, gang rapes, and being murdered in the name of 'honor.'

Are we that jaded or blind that we desire this kind of life? Didn't we move past much of this already?

People complain about the Christian Right in the United States. Even many of the so-called "moderate" Muslims make the most extreme fundamentalists in ANY OTHER religion look like a bunch of hippies. Many of these Muslims make Pat Robertson look like Pat Boone—yet when Muslims say things that are resolutely barbaric, no one in the media or national leadership utters a peep. No one bans these dangerous websites that regularly advocate terrorism and murder. Yet, we who only wish to live in the liberty and grace of our own heritage are accused of being hateful when we point out what THESE BARBARIANS THEMSELVES say!

In many ways I'm more concerned about the so-called "moderate" Muslims who work behind the scenes to hijack our liberal values of democracy and tolerance in order to destroy and subvert those gifts than I am about their terrorist brethren. At least Al-Qaeda has the "decency" so far to only hijack planes and trains. Their so-called "moderate" counterparts, and as Lenin might have put it, their "useful idiot' apologists are quite busy hijacking our laws and freedoms, threatening fellow passengers, corporations, schools and universities, with lawsuits and considerations for special priviledges, blurring the line between religion and state far beyond that which the ACLU takes the other religions to task for.

Killer Religion
Some 50 members of a hardline Indonesian Muslim group held a rowdy protest outside the Dutch embassy on Monday, calling for the death of a Dutch lawmaker behind a film accusing the Koran of inciting violence. Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-immigration Freedom Party in the Netherlands, launched his short video on the Internet last week, drawing condemnation from Muslim nations.

Dozens of police, with two water cannon at the ready, did not intervene during the protest by white-clad members of the Islamic Defenders' Front, some of whom hurled eggs and plastic water bottles into the compound of the Dutch embassy in Jakarta.

"I call on Muslims around the world, if you run into the maker of the film, kill him," said one of the speakers at the rally, Awit Mashuri.

"Geert Wilders is a Christian terrorist," declared a placard held up by a protester. "Kill Geert Wilders," read another.

The Front is notorious for its past raids on nightspots the group accused of harbouring prostitutes and drug dealers. In 2003, the group's leader, Mohammad Rizieq Shihab, was jailed for seven months for inciting violence. Dutch director Theo van Gogh, who made a film accusing Islam of condoning violence against women, was murdered by a militant Islamist in 2004.

Wilders' film "Fitna"—an Arabic term sometimes translated as "strife"—intersperses images of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States and Islamist bombings with quotations from the Koran, Islam's holy book. The film urges Muslims to tear out "hate-filled" verses from the Koran and starts and ends with a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad with a bomb under his turban, accompanied by the sound of ticking.

The cartoon, first published in Danish newspapers, ignited violent protests around the world and a boycott of Danish products in 2006. Many Muslims regard any depiction of the Prophet as offensive. So far, the protests against the Dutch film have been small scale in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation and a former Dutch colony.

I apologize to that cluster of beloved Jewish anti-Zionists, those whom I know personally, for my reticence in not pouncing upon their lofty ideals with strong rebuttals of my own when occasion permits. My own lofty tendency is to allow people their own thoughts and idealogies. After all, most everybody, including these highly educated and emotionally bold prophets of [that dead horse called] Marxism hold themselves in high regard for arriving at their own conclusions. Fair enough. But here in ineffable print, I am the first to shout from the rooftops:


1. Israel became a state in 1312 B.C., two millennia before Islam;
2. Arab refugees from Israel began calling themselves “Palestinians” in 1967, two decades after (modern) Israeli statehood;
3. After conquering the land in 1272 B.C.., Jews ruled it for a thousand years and maintained a continuous presence there for 3,300 years;
4. The only Arab rule following conquest in 633 B.C. Lasted just 22 years;
5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem was the Jewish capital. It was never the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even under Jordanian rule, (east) Jerusalem was not made the capital, and no Arab leader came to visit it;
6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in the Bible, but not once is it mentioned in the Qur’an;
7. King David founded Jerusalem; Mohammed never set foot in it;
8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem; Muslims face Mecca. If between the two cities, Muslims pray facing Mecca, with their backs to Jerusalem;
9. In 1948, Arab leaders urged their people to leave, promising to cleanse the land of Jewish presence. 68% of them fled without ever setting eyes on an Israeli soldier;
10. Virtually the entire Jewish population of Muslim countries had to flee as the result of violence and pogroms;
11. Some 630,000 Arabs left Israel in 1948, while close to a million Jews were forced to leave the Muslim countries;
12. In spite of the vast territories at their disposal, Arab refugess were deliberately prevented from assimilating into their host countries. Of 100 million refugees following World War II, they are the only group to have never integrated with their coreligionists. Most of the Jewish refugees from Europe and Arab lands were settled in Israel, a country no larger than New Jersey;
13. There are 22 Muslim countries, not counting palestine. There is only one Jewish state. Arabs started all five wars against Israel, and lost every one of them;
14. Fatah and Hamas constitutions still call for the destruction of Israel. Israel ceded most of the West Bank and all of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority, and even provided it with arms;
15. During the Jordanian occupation, Jewish holy sites were vandalized and were off limits to Jews. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and christian holy sites are accessible to all faiths;
16. Out of 175 United Nations Security Council resolutions up to 1990, 97 were against Israel; out of 690 general assembly resolutions, 429 were against Israel;
17. The U.N. was silent when the Jordanians destroyed 58 synagogues in the old city of Jerusalem. It remained silent while Jordan systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the mount of olives, and it remained silent when Jordan enforced apartheid laws preventing Jews from accessing the Temple Mount and Western Wall.

I was told once by a friend that he believed that anyone on the planet should be free to live anywhere. Not the first time I'd heard that one. In fact, I used to dream of that same world back in my own teens and twenties. But now we are both in our fifties. And I for one have always sensed that the world does not contour to the fantasies of flower children, no matter how soft and beautiful the messenger. But my friend is a serious political activist to this day. And the fact that he, as a Jewish "unbeliever" in the state of Israel, is currently allowed and even encouraged to immigrate and set up residence in Israel, while I, a non-Jewish "believer" in the state of Israel, cannot, makes no sense to him. Fair logic. But logic, we have found, feeds on the corpses of foolish philosophers, and legion are their number. I think Wittgenstein said that.

On the other hand, to hold to his own "free to live anywhere" principle, there should then be nothing to prevent Jews from around the world and current Israelis from setting up house in Israel much the same as they currently do. And this is something the Arabs (and by default, their left-leaning comrades) simply cannot stomach. For these Arab supremists, disturbed by a non-dhimmi Jewish settlement in any form, wish to push the state of Israel, off the map and into the sea. How many times must they state their monstrous case for it to be heard by the ideologues lurking along the Western Left fringes, proclaiming peace at any cost when there is no peace to be had?

After all, the whole story of Baalam and the talking ass begins when the prophets of old, busy taking bribes and acquiescing to the fears of the pagan rulers of that time, proclaimed, "Peace! Peace! Peace in our lifetime! Victory over Israel" But according to the storyline, this was not to be. War and destruction for the Moabites and others was on the menu, and no amount of peacebrokering was going to dissuade the future. Several thousand years later, we have the Neville Chamberlain edition of this old tale.

Today, we seem to be living under similar conditions yet again.

So to this end, I leave you, dear anti-Zionist reader, a poem written in 1980 by a poet you have perhaps known in other roles, walking alone along the line of bleeping patriots:


A silent tongue unravels the strangling noose,
Its path, unheralded by truce.
Odd scratched and scribbled graffitti,
Peacemaking my splintered head,
Ballets in dizzy nymph

Arousing the needy.
A parlor hunger, birds unfed.

My mind, a blank page.
My head leaps as a small frog,
There is no comfort.

The nothingness crowd is quoted no more,
Altared but undevoted they pay by nod.
My mind, a cluttered page.
My head sleeps as a burnt ephemeral log,
There is no comfort.
(Yet told around gracious Sin Avenue
camp fires spotting downtown Machinery Row
to the lilies laughing over a fine glass
of the best Napolean brandy
noonday dollars never doubt
where sheer distance is divided by
voteless cog, the mist of democracy
is seen reflecting upon our names
an appointed fog grazing upon
the tracks of method....)

And the saint thus
Spoke scantily to the prophet:
"He who demoralizes another
"Can claim no morality for himself."
To this the prophet said nothing, but
He knew in part the saint
For a shanty fool.

(And the unfed,
Left to perish among
The unwelcome, left to ravish
The beauty of beast, and the beast
Of beauty, established
Many fine logics.)

I fell blank at such a formula—
Asses built on caged numbers observed,
Deserved and dirty word reserved
For quaint molecules and family,
Where my occupation is a gift to anyone
Stroking along fishy fables,
Mentality tables, cradled
Images, daisies, nightsies,

I am the yellow sheep
I can’t earn my keep
Proving the fallibility of this text
World without maps
World without worldliness

My mind, an accurate page.
My head keeps to its own symbol,
There is no comfort.

I wonder what proof died in my mouth.

The primary audience for Fitna isn't Muslims, so Eteraz' opinion is irrelevant. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I like Geertz Wilder's shifting of the onus of reform to Muslims. I, for one, am utterly unconvinced that the West is even in the smallest way responsible for the jihad declared against us, although I do admit that we've made the jihad against us stronger by not understanding its origins and methods. I refuse to take even the slightest responsibility for Muslim grievances and refuse to give in one iota to their demands. As far as I'm concerned, Islam is a completely illegitimate entity upon this earth and, as such, Muslims have no basis for making claims upon any non-Muslim, even including any claim that "we" should stop "exploiting" Muslims and Muslim lands. By adhering to Islam, Muslims abdicate those rights. I'm a human rights universalist, but I also believe that an individual's beliefs (including his beliefs about the relationship of belief to action) can place him "beyond the pale" of human rights, at which point he becomes "persona non grata" on this planet. This, and the potential consequences thereof, should be explained to them once. They will either "get it" or they will not.

As for the "originality" of his guest's "review", I guess amongst Muslims such feigned indifference might seem original, but for any Westerner who's gone through the "disaffected teen" stage, that's old hat.

A MUSLIM BUS DRIVER told stunned passengers to get off so he could PRAY. The white Islamic convert rolled out his prayer mat in the aisle and knelt on the floor facing Mecca. Passengers watched in amazement as he held out his palms towards the sky, bowed his head and began to chant.

One, who filmed the man on his mobile phone, said: “He was clearly praying and chanting in Arabic. A 21-year-old plumber added: “He looked English and had a London accent. He looked like a Muslim convert, with a big, bushy beard.

“Eventually everyone started complaining. One woman said, ‘What the hell are you doing? I’m going to be late for work’.”

After a few minutes the driver calmly got up, opened the doors and asked everyone back on board. But they saw a rucksack lying on the floor of the red single-decker and feared he might be a fanatic. So they all refused.

The passenger added: “One chap said, ‘I’m not getting on there now.' An elderly couple also looked really confused and worried. After seeing that no-one wanted to get on he drove off and we all waited until the next bus came about 20 minutes later. I was left totally stunned. It made me not want to get on a bus again.”

The bizarre event unfolded on the number 81 in Langley, Berkshire, at around 1.30pm on Thursday. A passenger said he rang the bus firm to complain but claimed it did not believe him.

Will this idiot bus driver get the boot? One would like to think so, but the West has lost its nerve and its sense of righteousness as it falls hostage to these Mohammedan terrorists of every stripe. How much longer before this madness ends?

NEW IMPROVED FBI is in fit fighting form, again, and sticking with what it knows best—ruling out terrorism. Now involved in the theft of a car after it was found in Los Lunas, New Mexico, with an explosive device and Iraqi currency inside FBI agents say that they have ruled out terrorism in the case. The car was reported stolen last week.

After the theft, coincidentally, the car’s owner was fueling his motorcycle when he spotted his stolen car. He walked over to it, pulled the keys out of the ignition, prompting the men in the car to flee. When police arrived, they found the explosive device and less than $1,000 worth of Iraqi cash.

“We don’t know what their intentions were,” said said Los Lunas Police Captain Charles Nuanes. “We don’t know what they were planning on doing with any of this.”

Uh, the owner's keys were in the ignition?

Lurking around the website called The National Terror Alert Response Center. Just read about the continuing spate of bizzare events that have been going on nationwide that are quietly dismissed by the media (at the behest of the Federal Government, no doubt).

  • Stolen car found in New Mexico today with Iraqi currency and a bomb. Yet our dearly beloved FBI is saying they've ruled out terrorism. In other words, bin Laden's signature is not on it.
  • Huge underground explosion near LAX yesterday killed 1 firefighter. Must not frighten our liberal southern Californians.
  • Bomb squad called Tuesday for suspicious package in Pullman, Washington, but as of this morning there is no follow up on story. Must protect the Muslims in this country from any potential backlash, I suppose.
  • On Monday, the Union Pacific Railroad had to call out the bomb squad when unidentified males took off from the railyard after being spotted, leaving behind what appeared to be a battery with wires attached.
  • Federal officers searching a suspicious pickup truck near the U.S. Capitol in January missed an explosive device that remained undetected behind the seat for three weeks, officials said yesterday. Michael S. Gorbey, who was initially detained for carrying a loaded shotgun near the Capitol, is now facing charges of planning to set off a bomb, according to an indictment filed in D.C. Superior Court. U.S. Capitol Police are investigating how their top-rated bomb squad failed to spot the hazardous device.

    All this leads us to the question of the day. Just what is the working definition of terrorism in America '08? But hey, one thing is certain, our nation's first responders have ruled out terrrorism. Go back to sleep now.

    by Raymond Ibrahim

    Coptic priest Zakaria Botros fights fire with fire. Though he is little known in the West, Coptic priest Zakaria Botros—named Islam’s “Public Enemy #1” by the Arabic newspaper, al-Insan al-Jadid—has been making waves in the Islamic world. Along with fellow missionaries—mostly Muslim converts—he appears frequently on the Arabic channel al-Hayat (i.e., “Life TV”). There, he addresses controversial topics of theological significance—free from the censorship imposed by Islamic authorities or self-imposed through fear of the zealous mobs who fulminated against the infamous cartoons of Mohammed. Botros’s excurses on little-known but embarrassing aspects of Islamic law and tradition have become a thorn in the side of Islamic leaders throughout the Middle East.

    Botros is an unusual figure onscreen: robed, with a huge cross around his neck, he sits with both the Koran and the Bible in easy reach. Egypt’s Copts—members of one of the oldest Christian communities in the Middle East—have in many respects come to personify the demeaning Islamic institution of “dhimmitude” (which demands submissiveness from non-Muslims, in accordance with Koran 9:29). But the fiery Botros does not submit, and minces no words. He has famously made of Islam “ten demands,” whose radical nature he uses to highlight Islam’s own radical demands on non-Muslims.

    The result? Mass conversions to Christianity—if clandestine ones. The very public conversion of high-profile Italian journalist Magdi Allam—who was baptized by Pope Benedict in Rome on Saturday—is only the tip of the iceberg. Indeed, Islamic cleric Ahmad al-Qatani stated on al-Jazeera TV a while back that some six million Muslims convert to Christianity annually, many of them persuaded by Botros’s public ministry. More recently, al-Jazeera noted Life TV’s “unprecedented evangelical raid” on the Muslim world. Several factors account for the Botros phenomenon.

    First, the new media—particularly satellite TV and the Internet (the main conduits for Life TV)—have made it possible for questions about Islam to be made public without fear of reprisal. It is unprecedented to hear Muslims from around the Islamic world—even from Saudi Arabia, where imported Bibles are confiscated and burned—call into the show to argue with Botros and his colleagues, and sometimes, to accept Christ.

    Secondly, Botros’s broadcasts are in Arabic—the language of some 200 million people, most of them Muslim. While several Western writers have published persuasive critiques of Islam, their arguments go largely unnoticed in the Islamic world. Botros’s mastery of classical Arabic not only allows him to reach a broader audience, it enables him to delve deeply into the voluminous Arabic literature—much of it untapped by Western writers who rely on translations—and so report to the average Muslim on the discrepancies and affronts to moral common sense found within this vast corpus.

    A third reason for Botros’s success is that his polemical technique has proven irrefutable. Each of his episodes has a theme—from the pressing to the esoteric—often expressed as a question (e.g., “Is jihad an obligation for all Muslims?”; “Are women inferior to men in Islam?”; “Did Mohammed say that adulterous female monkeys should be stoned?” “Is drinking the urine of prophets salutary according to sharia?”). To answer the question, Botros meticulously quotes—always careful to give sources and reference numbers— from authoritative Islamic texts on the subject, starting from the Koran; then from the canonical sayings of the prophet—the Hadith; and finally from the words of prominent Muslim theologians past and present—the illustrious ulema.

    Typically, Botros’s presentation of the Islamic material is sufficiently detailed that the controversial topic is shown to be an airtight aspect of Islam. Yet, however convincing his proofs, Botros does not flatly conclude that, say, universal jihad or female inferiority are basic tenets of Islam. He treats the question as still open—and humbly invites the ulema, the revered articulators of sharia law, to respond and show the error in his methodology. He does demand, however, that their response be based on “al-dalil we al-burhan,”—“evidence and proof,” one of his frequent refrains—not shout-downs or sophistry.

    More often than not, the response from the ulema is deafening silence—which has only made Botros and Life TV more enticing to Muslim viewers. The ulema who have publicly addressed Botros’s conclusions often find themselves forced to agree with him—which has led to some amusing (and embarrassing) moments on live Arabic TV.

    Read it all.

    Here is an incomplete list of Muslims in the United States who have been arrested and/or convicted for either planning or acting out their "jihad" against unsuspecting, innocent men, women and children. Will the Muslim organizations in America ever stand up for once and address the facts, or will they continue trying to mask what's really going on within their own community by accusing Americans of practicing the biases and double standards that they themselves practice in accordance with their own beliefs?

    Abdel Azim El Siddig: Financing Islamic terrorism (Missouri).

    Abdelhaleem Ashqar: Criminal contempt and obstruction of justice for refusing to testify in 2003 before a grand jury investigating the Palestinian militant movement Hamas. Telephone records presented in the case records showed that Ashqar was in contact with Hamas leaders.

    Abdul Hakim Murad: Conspiring and attempting to bomb 12 airliners.

    Abdul Rauf Noormohamed: Providing false terrorism tips to federal agents.

    Abdurahman Alamoudi: Financing Islamic terrorism.

    Adham Hassoun: Conspiracy to murder, kidnap and maim people in a foreign country.

    Adnan el-Shukrijumah: Wanted in connection with possible threats against the United States.

    Agron Abdullahu: Conspiring to provide weapons to illegal immigrants.

    Ahmad Abdelmomen: Aggravated assault, for beating his younger sister, breaking her back, and leaving her wheelchair bound because he was upset about her relationship with a non-Muslim boy. Their parents did not immediately call for medical assistance, believing that the beating was justified. (Michigan)

    Ahmad Saad Nasim: Filing a false 'anti-Muslim' hate crime (Arizona).

    Ahmed Barodi: Smuggling bogus passports into Saudi Arabia for the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood.

    Ahmed Mohamed: Teaching and demonstrating the making and use of an expolsive and destructive device, illegal transporting of explosive materials. (South Carolina)

    Ahmed Omar Abu Ali: Terror-related charges, plotting to kill a U.S. President (Virginia).

    Ahmed Ressam: Plotting to bomb the Los Angeles Airport on the eve of the new millennium.

    Ali Abu Kamal: Shooting seven people on the Empire State Building's observation deck, killing one because he wanted to "punish America for supporting Israel."

    Ali al-Timimi: Recruiting Islamic terrorists.

    Ali bin Mussalim: Investing funds for Osama bin Laden and Al Qaida.

    Ali Mohamed Bagegni: Financing Islamic terrorism (Missouri).

    Ali Warrayat: Aggravated assault and arson. Warrayat, a Muslim and former student at Arizona State, with a Qur'an and a Palestinian flag in his trunk, rammed his car through the doors of an Arizona Home Depot store, drove through the store to the section that stocks the flammable liquids, and sets it ablaze. Why? He was unhappy with his raise.

    IN A FEBRUARY 26, 2008 article in the Arab liberal e-journal Elaph, Libyan-European liberal thinker and entrepreneur Muhammad 'Abd Al-Muttalib Al-Houni wrote that the recent statements by Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams on implementing shari'a law in Britain constituted dangerous encouragement to fundamentalists in their war against the Enlightenment. He added that such statements could have very grave repercussions for the struggle for freedom in Muslim countries as well.

    The following are excerpts from Al-Houni's article:


    "Also, European countries seeking to implement shari'a would need to submit their reservations regarding any international conventions they may have signed. This is because they will have to:

    "1) Permit polygamy for European Muslim citizens, and not punish them for it - [even though] this is considered criminal under European law;

    "2) Permit European Muslim citizens to beat their wives to discipline them, as the Koran urges;

    "3) Allow men to unilaterally decide to divorce without requiring any court proceedings, as this is a right guaranteed [to men] by shari'a;

    "4) Give daughters [only] half the inheritance rights that sons have, while widows receive only an eighth of the inheritance;

    "5) [Not] consider women's testimony the equal of men's in shari'a courts;

    "6) Deprive a divorced woman of custody of her children if she remarries;

    "7) Allow European Muslim citizens to marry in traditional marriages without the need to officially register these marriages;

    "8) Eliminate adoption, since it is contrary to shari'a;

    "9) Force a woman whose Muslim husband converts to another religion to divorce him, because he is an apostate;

    "10) Prevent European Muslim women from marrying non-Muslims…"

    Adopting Shari'a Would Undermine the Concept of Citizenship

    "If [Archbishop Rowan's] intention is to introduce some or all of these laws from Islamic shari'a into Europe's legal systems, it would mean the following:

    "1) The concept of citizenship in Europe will change. There will be [different] classes of citizenship and of citizens, with some citizens being exempt from having the general law applied to them because they belong to a particular religion or belief. There will be a Muslim [class of] citizen, a Christian [class of] citizen, a Buddhist [class of] citizen, a Confucian [class of] citizen, and so on. Each will apply his own laws... Thus, faith will not be an individual freedom or belief; it will [come to] have extremely serious public ramifications.

    "2) If some or all of these laws were implemented and recognized by European legislative bodies, it would not only seriously damage human rights legislation - it would spell the end [of this legislation]. This is because everything I mentioned above is a negation of human rights principles.

    "3) Recognizing all, or [even] some, of these laws would take European societies back to the age before the Enlightenment and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As a result, the West would revert to barbarism."

    Is the Anglican Church a Partner in Fundamentalism?

    "While I maintain that the European countries will never accede to these catastrophic demands—for reasons more practical than humanist—the fact that they were proposed by the British archbishop sends the wrong message to the Islamic world. The gist of this message is that there is no contradiction between Islamic shari'a and Western civilization if [shari'a] applies [only] for Muslim citizens.

    Writer Dan Simmons has penned a chilling piece of sci-fi worth any pair of eyes you've got. Read it here.

    After reading the Dan Simmons tale, return to this page to the menace of demographic conquest outined in the following, originally posted here by Rebecca Bynum:

    As George Santayana wrote: “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Regarding Islam, we don’t have to look back hundreds of years to learn from history. All we need do is look at what has happened in Great Britain over the past three decades.

    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."

    When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to "the reasonable" Muslim demands for their "religious rights," they also get the other components under the table. Here's how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book, 2007).

    As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

    United States—Muslim 1.0%
    Australia—Muslim 1.5%
    Canada—Muslim 1.9%
    China—Muslim 1%-2%
    Italy—Muslim 1.5%
    Norway—Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

    Denmark—Muslim 2%
    Germany—Muslim 3.7%
    United Kingdom—Muslim 2. 7%
    Spain—Muslim 4%
    Thailand—Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

    They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves—along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

    France—Muslim 8%
    Philippines—Muslim 5%
    Sweden—Muslim 5%
    Switzerland—Muslim 4.3%
    The Netherlands—Muslim 5.5%
    Trinidad & Tobago—Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris—car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam—Mohammed cartoons).

    Guyana—Muslim 10%
    India—Muslim 13.4%
    Israel—Muslim 16%
    Kenya—Muslim 10%
    Russia—Muslim 10-15%

    After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

    Ethiopia—Muslim 32.8%

    At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

    Bosnia—Muslim 40%
    Chad—Muslim 53.1%
    Lebanon—Muslim 59.7%

    From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

    Albania—Muslim 70%
    Malaysia—Muslim 60.4%
    Qatar—Muslim 77.5%
    Sudan—Muslim 70%

    After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

    Bangladesh—Muslim 83%
    Egypt—Muslim 90%
    Gaza—Muslim 98.7%
    Indonesia—Muslim 86.1%
    Iran—Muslim 98%
    Iraq—Muslim 97%
    Jordan—Muslim 92%
    Morocco—Muslim 98.7%
    Pakistan—Muslim 97%
    Palestine—Muslim 99%
    Syria—Muslim 90%
    Tajikistan—Muslim 90%
    Turkey—Muslim 99.8%
    United Arab Emirates—Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam"—the Islamic House of Peace—there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

    Afghanistan—Muslim 100%
    Saudi Arabia—Muslim 100%
    Somalia—Muslim 100%
    Yemen—Muslim 99.9%

    Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

    "Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world. And all of us against the infidel."
    Leon Uris, "The Haj"

    Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat"

    Len Pen
    Here's an interesting item. Jean-Marie Le Pen has been convicted of racism and fined 10,000 euros for remarks he made about Muslims four years ago. La Croix reports:

    Jean-Marie Le Pen was fined 10,000 euros on Wednesday by the Paris appeals court for provocation to discrimination, hatred and racial violence, as a result of his remarks about Muslims printed in the April 2004 edition of the extreme right-wing journal Rivarol.

    The 11th chamber of the court of appeals also sentenced the president of the Front National to 5000 euros in damages to be paid to the plaintiff, the Human Rights League. The lower criminal court had "nullified the suit" against him; thus he escaped conviction at the first hearing.

    On April 2, 2004, the criminal court of Paris had condemned Jean-Marie Le Pen for an interview he gave to Le Monde on April 19, 2003, in which he declared: "The day when we have in France not 5 million but 25 million Muslims they will be our masters. The French people will hug the walls, they will walk on the sidewalks with their eyes lowered. And if they don't, they will be stopped: 'Why are you looking at me like that, are you looking for a fight?' And you will have to run, or else you'll be beaten," he added.

    A month later Le Pen was back on the offensive in an interview in Rivarol: "Furthermore whenever I said that with 25 million Muslims in France the French people will hug the walls, people in the audience would say to me, and rightly so: 'But Mr. Le Pen, that is already the case now.'"

    It was for these new remarks that he was convicted on Wednesday.

    "The defendant pits the French against the Muslims (...) and attempts to arouse (...) a feeling of rejection and hostility towards the Muslim community," the court decided Wednesday. "His words instill in the mind of the public the belief that the security of the French depends on rejecting Muslims and that fear and apprehension, linked to their growing presence in France, will cease if their numbers decrease and if they disappear," the court added.

    Orwellian thought control is nearly complete. The Anti-Christ is ascending.

    Why does the left-wing Western media persist in this evil fraud of making its own citizenry out to be the wicked ones? Could it be because they desire to usher in the Next Great War, that war where murder is the every street, that war where capitalism collapses, that war where they, the miscreants and provocateurs, somehow manage to remain on top of the heap?

    THE HAGUE, 07/03/08 - Public broadcaster BNN deliberately misled viewers in a film clip about a woman in a burqa, the all-covering Muslim garment. In a mini-film on 101tv, BNN's digital youth channel, a woman is seen who is helped immediately when she drops her bag of oranges. The same woman in a burqa however gets no help when the same thing happens to her. The journalist said she felt discriminated against when wearing the burqa.

    But Amsterdam broadcaster AT5 discovered deception. AT5 cameras that recorded the BNN filming show that many passers-by wanted to help the woman in the burqa. When they did so, the makers called out to them to walk on.

    Besides, isn't it forbidden for a Muslim woman to interact with dirty Kaffirs in the first place. This sounds like a perfect set-up for yet another honor killing.

    Staying Alive
    Jake Nichols of the Planet Jackson Hole rag has conducted an interview of some vital interest and intensity. From his insider understanding of the terrorist mentality, Dr. Tawfik Hamid predicted the destruction of the Twin Towers (9-11), Madrid bombings, and London attacks. Now his stated mission has become to speak out against radical Islam as a cancer that is spreading with frightening rapidity across the globe today. A courageous as well as scholarly initiator of Islamic reformation, Dr. Hamid seeks to build new thinking within Islam to overcome the hatred and violent extremism that have metastasized within his religious tradition as he states: "in order to make LOVE prevail you should defeat Hatred!"

    Read on...

    Jackson Hole, WY - Dr. Tawfik Hamid, 47, was born in Egypt to an agnostic father and liberal French mother. As a student at Cairo University medical school in the late 1970s, Dr. Hamid joined a radical Islamic group and became, in essence, a budding terrorist.

    He has since eschewed violent teachings of the Qur’an and other Islamic texts and has embraced a new and more peaceful interpretation of the Muslim faith which he has developed and encouraged by authoring several books and lecturing worldwide. Dr. Hamid believes changing the Muslim religion from within is the only way to ensure world peace.

    “It is the only hope to a long term solution to the problem and not just a recipe approach or a symptomatic treatment for the disease,” the doctor told the Planet during a phone interview from Washington, D.C. “I want to treat the disease from its roots so that we guarantee that it does not come again in the future.”

    While Dr. Hamid preaches a peaceful interpretation of the Qur’an, his suggestions for dealing with radical Islamists have been accused of pouring gasoline on the fire. He often defends his position by saying the western world and America is too worried about seeming “Islamaphobic.”

    “Stop asking what you have done wrong. Stop it!” he said. “They’re slaughtering you like sheep and you still look within. You criticize your history, your institutions, your churches. Why can’t you realize that it has nothing to do with what you have done but with what they want?”

    Planet Jackson Hole: You claim you were approached in college by the man who is now considered Bin Laden’s lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahiri. He got you involved in a rather radical Muslim group called Jamaat Islamiyah. Describe the process.

    Dr. Tawfik Hamid: It was a group inside the medical school itself and it was legal back then. We used to have three masques: One relatively peaceful, another a bit more aggressive, and Jamaat Islamiyah. Approximately 3 percent of the students at the school were members of Jamaat Islamiyah. You go to pray with them. They put your name on some sort of list. You sign and are considered a member. It was a group that prepared you, indoctrinated you, with the violent teachings.

    PJH: The indoctrination process has been likened to a “brainwashing.” You, yourself, have detailed stages—Stage I: creating hatred toward non-believers; Stage II: eliminating empathy or sympathy toward the pain and suffering of others; Stage III: accepting or using violence against others. How far did they suck you in … and how?

    TH: When you are motivated by religious beliefs [they] can be used by some people to suppress your ability to do critical thinking. They did this to me by using certain verses and certain tactics. For example, they liked to use a phrase, ‘If you think, you become an infidel.’ So they use tactics that make it difficult for you to question or think. They say to you, ‘This is the will of Allah. You cannot negotiate with God and you have to just obey blindly whatever he says to you.’

    PJH: And the process is subtle?

    TH: The process is gradual. One day I prayed with them and they asked us to stand in queues with no separation or gaps in between our shoulders and our feet. This was intentionally done to make us feel as if we were at war. To quote the Qur’anic verse: “God loves those who fight for his cause as if they are one cemented or solid structure with no gaps between them.”

    So they put you in the Jihadi mind. You start to feel like you are a soldier, not just someone who is worshipping God. You are a part of a system that is declaring war on non-believers or infidels. In fact, they use the power of hellfire very effectively. The Qur’an describes the hellfire in very poetic and powerful [imagery], with great detail in the torture tactics.

    PJH: And I have never heard anyone but you mention this, but there is the use of sexual deprivation on young recruits, adolescent males, at a time in their lives when their bodies are raging with testosterone.

    TH: Many students are unable to have any sexual relationships because marriage was very costly and very difficult while they are students. Extramarital relationships are very difficult in this culture and strongly prohibited. So, on one hand you have this sexual frustration, on the other hand you have a description of paradise full of ladies and women waiting for you there. This creates some distortion in our minds and many of the students back then were truly dreaming about going to paradise; dying for Allah as a martyr or shahid, and go to paradise to have these ladies up there.

    PJH: How does this apply to women suicide bombers, who are now starting to become more prevalent, where you used to never hear of such a thing? What are they promised, Chippendales and fat-free ice cream?

    TH: Look, the dream of going to God and the paradise and to die in martyrdom or shahid is actually in the mind of many women including my wife. She used to dream about dying as a martyr to go to paradise.

    But the dream for women is a little different. Women are affected by the fear of hell more than desire in having sexual things in paradise. There are words of the prophet Mohammed which are not Qur’anic but are generally accepted by most Muslims, that says most of the people in hell are women. The women are generally afraid of going to hell because the torture tactics are clearly described in the Qur’an.

    PJH: But you got out. You are not hiding in a cave with al-Zawahiri. You are here in the U.S. and a devotee of a kinder Islam.

    TH: I reached that level [Stage III] and what happened was a certain event. There was a big party in the medical school. It was an innocent party but the Jamaat Islamiyah saw it as un-Islamic, so they gathered in the hundreds, more than a thousand, actually, and they prayed in the middle of the school showing power and chanting, ‘Allahu Akbar,’ and threatening to stop this innocent party by violence. On this day, I was standing beside someone who was the leader of the fourth group of the Jamaat Islamiyah and he was planning with other people to kidnap one of the police officers and bury him alive. To dig a grave beside the mosque and bury the man alive.

    And I just thought this was too much for me. It awakened my conscious and I felt there was something fundamentally wrong here and I started to think, which was the opposite of what they told me. And when I started to think, the whole process started backwards and I started to develop a new interpretation for the Qur’an and the Islamic teaching. This was the triggering factor. I found some Qur’anic verses that encouraged me to tell the truth even if it was against my culture.

    PJH: You have described al-Zawahiri as a fiercest speaker you have ever heard.

    TH: He is a man of great conviction. There is no doubt he believed in what he was saying. He was not doing it to gain money or wealth—he was from a relatively wealthy family. He was a very intelligent person. He had a great future in Egypt if he continued in the Arab world as a doctor.

    It’s like Bin Laden, who was a billionaire and left everything to go to live in the mountains of Afghanistan. He left a five-star hotel to live there. So these people are truly convinced in what they are doing. Plus, if they have that charisma, like al-Zawahiri, he can just blow you away and you feel that you are totally captivated by his form of teachings that are very, very inflammatory and very powerful at the same time.

    PJH: If we locked the both of you in a room...

    TH: [Chuckles]

    PJH: … and waited to see whose interpretation of the Qur’an would prevail, what would happen? Who would convince who?

    TH: I will tell you, my views can be very convincing but his views are supported by a lot of other scholars and, also, he would use violence against me. So for me to use convincing here would not be very … well, let’s say, I would try to convince him and he would try to kill me.

    PJH: Which leads me to some of the more controversial aspects of your lectures, Doctor. You have said HAMAS must be crushed militarily. Economic pressure must be forced on Saudi Arabia. You encourage western civilization to meet terrorists’ violence with violence. Would that be a fair assessment?

    TH: With MORE violence, sometimes.

    We have a recent example in history with the Nazis and the Emperor of Japan. We couldn’t change the ideology of the Nazis or the Japanese by peace or love or harmony or mutual understanding. The change in their educational system and their ideology happened only after their military defeat. You give your enemy a powerful military defeat, then you will be able to change their education.

    This is what I’m suggesting here with HAMAS. The problem with Israel, for example, is they use what I call ‘a moderate dose of antibiotics’ which does not kill the infection, it just gives the wrong impression that the antibiotics are not working. What I’m saying is if you are going to use power in the military against the violence of barbarians like this, then you have to use sufficient power to suppress them. As long as you are using this moderate dose of power, the problem will remain a chronic problem. This might be viewed as very aggressive but, unfortunately, this is what history teaches us. In [the cases of] Hitler and Japan, the world used sufficient power to devastate them and the war was ended and peace happened after that. It was not peace with Hitler and Japan that brought peace. It was military power.

    PJH: A little peace upside their head, eh?

    TH: But it has to be devastating. It cannot be moderate military power; otherwise the war can continue forever.

    PJH: And in the case of Saudi Arabia, it doesn’t help that, as a nation, we’re hooked on their oil.

    TH: Of course. It’s a waste of your time if you try to use military might. What is needed is some type of economic pressure to push them toward modality. I’m not an advocate of sudden change of structure of the system there. Some people advocate immediate democracy or the changing of the government’s mind. My belief is this can create chaos like what’s happening in Iraq.

    I believe it would be more wise to use their political leaders, some of whom are relatively pro-American, and cooperate with them and give them expertise and assist them in some way or another and work together to defeat radical Islam, which is also a threat to them. It’s like a chess match—one step at a time. Creating democracy now, before defeating radical Islam, can just invite an Islam which can cause more trouble for the world.

    PJH: On Glenn Beck’s television show, you got into it a little bit with CAIR’s (Council on American-Islamic Relations) Ahmed Bedier. What happened there?

    TH: It’s something we all need to recognize. You cannot call a person a moderate if he believes he should kill apostates or he allows the beating of women and stoning them to death, or allows slavery to come back again, or uses war against non-Muslims to subjugate them to Islam, or calls Jews “pigs and monkeys.” You can’t consider this a moderate person or organization.

    What I am trying to do is propose a real treatment to the problem. To provide a new or alternative interpretation to the Islamic text which is feasible because the Arabic language is very flexible; you can interpret at the literal level or even metaphoric level.

    PJH: You have a unique, insider’s understanding of the jihadist, the terrorist. You say you knew America would be hit two years before the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001. You saw it coming.

    TH: As a simple observer, I saw the growth of Islamism and the violence and I could tell, at the end of this curve, they will start attacking in the West. It was obvious. They declared war against the western civilization and their freedoms, especially the freedom of women, and they hated to their guts any sort of liberal values.

    I knew this cancer was growing and it was sure to hit the west but where to hit? You have, in the Arab culture, a proverb that means, “It is better to attack the most powerful, so that the weaker ones become afraid of you.” So they chose America because it’s the most powerful country.

    Now, why New York City? Because, based on a Qur’an verse that says, “Whatever they do to tease the infidels or cause them pain, they will be rewarded by Allah for this.” So they chose New York City because they believed it would cause maximum pain to America because it is the capital of money and the symbolism of the twin towers would be most damaging.

    PJH: Do salafist or fundamentalist Islam and radical Islam have to mean the same thing?

    TH: A fundamentalist is someone who doesn’t want to shake hands with women. He will force his wife and daughter to wear the hijab. They don’t allow TV in their homes. It’s more within. The effect of it is within. Radical Islam is outside. It’s forcing others to believe. It’s using violence against Christians in order to subjugate them to Islam. They are really two faces to the same coin.

    PJH: It sounds like a radical is a fundamentalist who takes up jihad.

    TH: Yeah.

    PJH: Let’s talk about how your views apply to our current political scene and the race for presidency. Barack Obama, for instance, has made no bones about how he would seek face-to-face meetings with leaders in the Arab world that we have struggled with. Will that be effective?

    TH: That will never work. In fact, it will actually aggravate the problem. I’ll give you an example. In the cartoon [depiction] of the prophet Mohammed, for example. When the cartoon was published, it was the 30th of September, 2005. Until four months later, January 2006, there were no violent demonstrations, okay? On the day when the Danish magazine [Jyllands-Posten] apologized—this was the 30th of January, 2006—within 48 hours, violent demonstrations erupted throughout the world.

    That is the phenomenon; that you show weakness and withdrawal with these people and they actually think of attacking you more. They attacked you in Kenya and Tanzania on your embassies in 1998. Your reaction was weak. This weakness encouraged them to attack you again.

    So in trying to negotiate with the jihadists or radicals without losing your freedom is [impossible]. [Both] al-Zawahiri and Bin Laden said to you, “Convert to Islam or we will declare war on you.” This is a simple, clear issue that has been stated by the leaders of al-Qaida and has been repeated over and over. So why don’t you believe them? It is crystal clear; they are not ready to negotiate. They just want your submission.

    [Obama] might be interested to negotiate but they are not. And you cannot negotiate with yourself. It’s just dreams. And I can see some people in the political field, especially, in my view, some of the liberal left; they live in dreams rather than reality. This approach, these politicians, I believe, will just bring more catastrophes to the world.
