Parsing even worse than Bill Clinton on "depends on what 'is' is.... Obama insists we are not at war with Islam but with Al Qaeda and those who distort Islam. What nonsense! The fact that all those "admitted" enemies are all Moslems is irrelevant? Just because al Qaeda is out to remove his Moslem King of Saudi Arabia, allows him to mislead and misdirect by tagging them but not other followers of violent Islam?
What religion of peace!??
Imam Rauf: (paraphrased) Let me build my Ground Zero mosque, give me New York tax payer funds to do it or I will sic my hordes of evil lslamists at you. Here in America and around the world. Be afraid, be very afraid not to do as I demand. I do NOT care that 70% of New Yorkers or 68% of all Americans do NOT want this mosque built on Ground Zero.
Be afraid of defying me and Islam, for my fellow Moslems will rise and strike you Americans down, burn and pillage your businesses around the world, kill as they did with the Mohammad cartoons - but even worse than that.
Don't you dare burn any Korans just because we burn your flag and your churches and your Christians alive inside them. Violent Jihad is a tenet of Islam so opposing it's violence is a hate crime and we want the USA to punish all who dare to do this.
How dare you disagree with the clearly OFFENSIVE demands of Islam? Do so at your peril. You know we have millions of radicals, mostly superstitious, illiterate, who will cause you great pain for this impudence! Surrender and shut up. Or else! Who cares that Islamists killed so many people and Ground Zero has become sacred ground for America.
(Bloody splotches of people who jumped to their deaths on 9/11 certainly make this hallowed ground - below).
Here's some background that the piss-stream media will never tell you.
Let's look overseas: Hamas, which is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood has been formally designated a terrorist organization under our law for many years. According to its charter, Hamas's purpose is to create an Islamic Palestinian state by eliminating Israel through violent jihad.
The Muslim Brotherhood explained in an internal memorandum that their work in the United States was as a 'grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.' The Brotherhood said its tactic would be to 'sabotage.'
The 1991 memorandum elaborates that every city should have an 'axis' and 'perimeter' from which this jihad-by-sabotage strategy is headquartered. That axis will be known as 'the Islamic Center.' Islamic centers are to become 'the 'base' for our rise, the memo says. They are to be the focal point of education, preparation, and the 'supply of our battalions.'
Battalions are small cells of fighters. In Muslim Brotherhood ideology it is assumed that, at a certain mature point, when Muslim forces are strong enough, violent jihad will be effective. And Islamists prepare for it. Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, the spiritual guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, has proclaimed that 'dawa', the stealth form of jihad, is the method by which Islam will 'conquer America' and 'conquer Europe.'
The Saudis have been underwriting the Brotherhood's dawa efforts for decades.
Islam has three sacred texts: Koran, Sira, and Hadith, or the Islamic Trilogy. The Sira is Mohammed's biography. The Hadith are his traditions -- what he did and said. Sira and Hadith form the Sunna, the perfect pattern of all Islamic behavior.
The Koran is the smallest of the three books, also called the Trilogy. It is only 16% of the Trilogy text. The Sunna is 84%. Most of the Islamic doctrine is about Mohammed, not Allah (religion?). The Koran says 91 different times that Mohammed's is the perfect pattern of life. It is easy to understand a biography about a man. To know Islam, know Mohammed.
It turns out that jihad occurs in large proportion in all three texts. The Sira devotes 67% of its text to jihad. Mohammed averaged an event of violence every six weeks for the last nine years of his life. Jihad was what made Mohammed successful.
Mohammed was a preacher of religion, Islam grew at the rate of ten new Muslims per year. But when he turned to jihad, Islam grew at an average rate of ten thousand per year.
All the details of how to wage jihad are recorded in great detail. The Koran gives the great vision of jihad -- world conquest by the political process. The Sira is a strategic manual, and the Hadith is a tactical manual, of jihad.
When we count the magnitude of words devoted to political violence, we have 327,547 words in the Trilogy and 34,039 words in the Hebrew Bible. The Trilogy has 9.6 times as much wordage devoted to political violence as the Hebrew Bible.
The political violence of the Koran is eternal and universal. The political violence of the Bible was for that particular historical time and place. This is the vast difference between Islam and other ideologies.
The violence remains a constant threat to all non-Islamic cultures, now and into the future. Islam is not analogous to Christianity and Judaism in any practical way. Beyond the one-god doctrine, Islam is unique unto itself.
ASSUMING MOSLEM (MARXIST-ISLAMIST) USURPER, OBA-HUSSEIN IS EVEN ELIGIBLE TO BE IN THE WHITE HOUSE, THEN THIS THUG ENABLER AND PROTECTOR OF ISLAMIC BLACKMAIL, THREATS TO OUR WELL-BEING, JIHADI VIOLENCE AND SHARIA LAW INFILTRATION SHOULD BE LEGALLY OUSTED.....
