Islam an Ever-Present Danger to Western Civilization

Islamic Danger

Islam is a religion still grounded in principles formulated by its prophet in the 8th century. Then it spread like wildfire by conquest and subterfuge, which Mohammed preached and practiced. He justifies lying to unbelievers when this furthers the Moslem cause. Ever since, the desire to extend Islamic rule to non-Moslem areas has been deeply embedded in the minds of Moslems - the masses attending mosques and their rulers no less than fundamentalist extremists. Islam is by far the most political of all religions because the realization of this desire depends on concrete political and military action by Moslem regimes. However, Islam’s injunction to Moslem rulers to extend their rule to non-Moslem territory is limited by the pragmatic proviso that those too strong or too distant to be conquered can be left alone until circumstances are more propitious. This is why Moslem aggression ceased to trouble Europe after the 17th century.

It is in the forefront of Moslem minds today precisely because the United States recreated Moslem power by its policy of decolonization, accompanied by the developing of natural resources in Moslem states which were then allowed to be partially or wholly expropriated. It is important to understand why these policies and the Western encouragement of Moslem territorial expansion have not only made all Moslem rulers and their Moslem subjects more aggressive but have caused a revival of fundamentalist Islam. The idea that Moslems can be propitiated and kept peaceful by economic development and political concessions is the reverse of the truth. Their reaction is that concessions by unbelievers prove that Allah has begun to favor the believers. So the more powerful Moslem states become, economically and/or politically, the greater will be their religiously motivated appetite for territorial expansion at the infidel’s expense.

The US belief that its generosity to Moslems would be rewarded by loyalty was mistaken. Loyalty to unbelievers is not a Moslem trait. Pragmatism is. And pragmatism prescribes that when dealing with fools one milks them for all one can get, demoralizes them until they are incapable of protecting their interests, and then deprives them of any influence they have left. The Moslem world today has no love and very little respect for the Western powers in general and the United States in particular. It was for many years a bitterly divided world, where individual rulers competed with each other for wealth, influence and sometimes territory. This was why the wealthy states of the Gulf Cooperation Council were ready to accept protection from American and other Western forces. But four decades of prattling about decolonization and "globalism" have made their mark. If globalism is a good reason for uniting Europe, preventing it is a better reason for uniting Moslem states (which have much more in common than the Europeans) on a policy to wrest power from the unbelievers.

For this purpose, the Moslems enjoy one crucial advantage over the Chinese. Many millions of Chinese live outside China. A fair proportion of them may wish to encourage trade with China. But very few sympathize with Chinese communism or are ready to serve the political aspirations of Beijing. In the ideological sense, the opposite is true of Moslems. Even before the policies of Moslem states have been more or less coordinated, the Moslem dispersion, including Moslems in the US and Western Europe, will provide plenty of volunteers for an active fifth column and for terrorism serving the cause of Islam. Indeed, it has already begun to do so.

Thorough knowledge of US foreign policy during the 1946-2000 period is of vital importance to anyone attempting a serious diagnosis of the weaknesses threatening Western civilization from this direction. Whatever happens to the only superpower is likely to affect the fate of Western Europe. The Europeans only make matters worse by trying to compete with the US for Moslem favors. But perhaps the most serious problem of the West is that the Moslem states are aware of Western greed and its political repercussions. They had very good reasons to believe they will not be punished for increasing their military, political and economic capacity to a point at which they can blackmail the West into accepting their political, cultural or religious demands. Today, after the terrorist attack on New York and Washington, they are hoping that the US will settle for destroying Bin Laden and the Taleban and gradually resume its oil-dictated pro-Moslem policies.

For during the post-World War II era, the United States has tended to support authoritarian Moslem dictatorships on vital territorial issues when their interests conflicted with those of non-Moslem states, needlessly increasing their self-confidence and strategic importance. Israel was compelled to return the Sinai Peninsula (which it had occupied during a defensive war in 1967) to Egypt and may yet be told to cede the strategically vital Golan Heights to Syria – one of the main sponsors of radical and fundamentalist Islamic terrorism. Lebanon, created to provide self-determination for its Christians (then a majority), was allowed to fall under Syrian rule, causing the destruction of the Christian power structure and mass Christian emigration. In the Balkans, the US intervened militarily and falsified election results to maintain a Islamic regime in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Then it used massive military strikes to help Moslem Albania separate the Kosovo province from Serbia, of which it has been an integral part for centuries, disregarding the anarchy in Albania where armed gangs compete for power and trade in drugs. Now it is trying to help Albanians obtain additional rights and influence in Macedonia.

The only identifiable motive behind this long-term US policy is the greed of American business circles determining it and the profits they reap in oil-rich Moslem states. Promoting democracy abroad is certainly not on the US agenda. Even the occupation of democratic India’s territory by communist China has been ignored for the past 39 years, mainly for reasons already stated, but partly because China was an ally of Moslem Pakistan. Consistency is also not a US hallmark. Its media and "globalist" politicians decry ethnic or ethno-religious nationalism when dealing with West European allies but treat it as almost sacred when Moslems invoke it on behalf of their territorial claims.

The erosion of nationalist and/or religious motivations in the West - especially after the bipolar world and the rival superpower disappeared in 1991 - is another important factor affecting the assessment of the dangers facing Western civilization. At the beginning of this century, the US was still very much a Christian state. Since World War II, it is increasingly gravitating towards agnostic liberalism and cynical materialism. The argument that religion was a great rallying cry for war throughout human history is often used against it. However, few have dared to criticize Islam (as distinct from Islamic fundamentalism) on this account, though the question how to motivate power-wielders and populations in democratic states to deal with Moslem aggression and Moslem terrorism must clearly be faced. Patriotism motivated by ethnic nationalism can be a good substitute for religion in this respect. But agnostic liberalism cannot fulfill this function, especially when it is laced with pacifism and globalism. For a superpower, it is a source of weakness and a serious handicap in dealing with terrorists or religiously motivated aggressors.

Not a single Moslem state is a democracy. When there is serious internal opposition to a Moslem ruler, his rivals sometimes demand "democracy" during their bid to topple him, but never maintain it if they gain power. So there is an obvious contradiction between promoting democracy and supporting Moslem states. The contradiction between supporting globalism with ostensibly equal rights for all races, religions or nations and across-the-board support for Moslem territorial and cultural expansion should be no less obvious. These contradictions are a grave American weakness, as ideological confusion hamstrings the ability to act logically and firmly.

The US advocates globalism because it is a means of imposing on the world economic hegemony by a select group of supra-national corporations and big banks, the large majority of which are American. The assumption is that economic hegemony maintains political hegemony. A few big British, German, Japanese and French companies are allowed to share the profits, partly to keep them quiet, but chiefly because their influence on business circles in their countries may limit opposition to American plans or activities. However, since a goodly proportion of the spoils is in oil-rich Moslem states, the Europeans - and especially France - have not always cooperated. They remember the 1956 Suez crisis and, conscious of the US attempt to gain Moslem goodwill by means of political and territorial concessions, have upped the ante by offering more of the same.

Perhaps the most crucial aspect of assessing the only superpower’s prospects of maintaining its status relates to the impact of its policies on the Moslems. These quickly understood that the American talk about promoting democracy was propaganda for internal consumption and that the US preferred to deal with autocratic rulers, who are much easier to bribe. They also understood that they were in no danger of losing US support for their territorial claims against non-Moslems regardless of how they behaved. Syria is perhaps the outstanding example. It has occupied Lebanon. It has long been on the US list of states supporting terrorism and maintains training camps for 10 terrorist organizations operating against Turkey, Israel, Western Europe and the United States. There is clear evidence that the June 1996 bomb which blew up the USAF quarters in Dhahran, killing 19 Americans, was made in the Syrian-controlled Beka’a Valley and transported to Saudi Arabia by truck through Syria and Jordan with the knowledge and approval of Syrian officials. Moreover, Syria is an ally of Iran and has been doing everything possible to help Iraq outwit the embargo the UN imposed upon it. Yet the US still wants Israel to cede the Golan Heights to Syria!

When dealing with Moslems, this kind of political masochism has a heavy price. It promotes terrorism and it encourages the oil-rich Moslem states to buy off the sponsors of terrorism with political and/or financial support. For the burgeoning of Moslem terrorism - radical as well as fundamentalist - the United States, Britain and France have only themselves to blame. It is safe to predict that this terrorism will be one of the main American security concerns in the 21st century. But the political ambitions of the Moslem world may turn out an equally serious problem.

This analysis began by recalling that throughout human history empires rose by military conquest and fell when their rulers took their power for granted and that the basic cycle of war, occupation, exploitation, negligence and collapse has not changed. It noted that greed has always blinded power-wielders to danger. The greed of the business tycoons promoting globalism is far greater in scale and its impact on humanity than any greed history has known - and just as blind. It has nurtured an enemy who cares more about land than about money and has a profound religious urge to prove his superiority to the infidel. The message of history is that the United States will be unable to stem the tide of Islam in the 21st century unless it abandons globalism and begins to treat Moslem states as potential enemies whose strategic assets and importance must be reduced before it is too late.

Two Americas: One Blind to Terror Threat

By Jack Kelly

The FBI announced Saturday [2006] three Muslim men have been arrested for plotting to blow up fuel tanks and pipelines at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The New York Times ran a story about the plot in Sunday's paper. On page 30. The front page was reserved for a sympathetic story about Omar Ahmed Khadr, a suspected al Qaida terrorist being held at Guantanamo Bay.

We learned early in that story that Mr. Khadr was only 15 when he was arrested in Afghanistan in 2002; that he is "nearly blind in one eye" from the firefight in which he killed one American soldier and maimed another, and that he "doesn't trust Americans." Only much deeper in the story does reporter William Glaberson mention that young Mr. Khadr's father was a senior deputy to Osama bin Laden.

Had the JFK plot succeeded, thousands of Americans could have been killed, and the economic damage would have been enormous. Reporters Cara Buckley and William Rashbaum don't get around to mentioning this until the 28th paragraph in their story. But in the 5th paragraph, they tell us JFK "was never in imminent danger because the attack was only in a preliminary phase."
The originator of the plot was Russell DeFreitas, 63, a naturalized American citizen born in Guyana who had worked at JFK. Two other conspirators were arrested in Trinidad. A fourth named conspirator is at large. Seven other plotters (listed as Individuals A through G) are mentioned in the indictment.

"One law enforcement official played down Mr. Defreitas' ability to carry out an attack, calling him 'a sad sack' and 'not a grade A terrorist,'" Ms. Buckley and Mr. Rashbaum wrote. The Times reporters did not mention that federal officials suspect Adnan el-Shukrijumah, al Qaida's nuclear expert, may have been involved in the plot.

New York Times reporters also played down the threat posed by six Muslim men arrested May 8 for planning to massacre soldiers at Fort Dix in New Jersey. The original Times story didn't get around to mentioning that the plotters were Muslims until the 6th paragraph. Subsequent stories questioned whether there was a religious motivation for the planned massacre, and speculated that the Fort Dix Six may have been victims of entrapment.

On May 22, the Pew Research Center released a poll which indicated that 26 percent of Muslims in the U.S. under age 30 believe suicide bombings are justified under some circumstances. (Two percent of young Muslims say they're often justified.) "It is a hair-raising number," said Radwan Masmoudi, president of the Washington-based Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy. But the New York Times story on the poll didn't mention this until the 7th paragraph. Brian Knowlton's lead sentence began: "A new poll of American Muslims reveals a group that is better assimilated, more content, and less politically polarized than counterpart Muslim populations in Western Europe."

Some of the less assimilated and more polarized seem to be gathering at Islamberg, a Muslim commune in the Catskills, the New York Post reported Monday.

Neighbors have reported gunfire and military style physical training at the commune, which is thought to be associated with Jamaat al Fuqra. An al-Fuqra member was jailed in a 1996 plot to bomb bridges and tunnels in New York City. Others are suspects in assassinations and fire bombings in the U.S. One neighbor reported seeing commune members dressed in Port Authority uniforms, the Post said.

On ABC's "This Week" program Sunday, Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa) said the JFK airport plotters were provoked by the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Rep. Murtha has difficulty with time lines. Sep. 11, 2001 happened before March 19, 2003, when the Iraq War began. So did the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers barracks in Saudi Arabia; the 1998 attacks on the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the attack on the USS Cole in 2000.

Radical Islamists have been trying to kill Americans since long before the Iraq war began. There is no reason to suppose they will stop trying to kill Americans when the war in Iraq ends. But in the Democratic presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire Sunday night, all the candidates argued, in effect, that our troubles will be over once the troops have been brought home.

There are two Americas, Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards is fond of saying. One recognizes the threat posed by radical Islam. The other is blind to it.

What is best for us?

from Separationism:

Fjordman has written at Gates of Vienna (the article is also discussed at VFR):

The best way to deal with the Islamic world is to have as little to do with it as possible. We should completely stop Muslim immigration. This could be done in indirect ways, such as banning immigration from nations known to be engaged in terrorism. All Muslim non-citizens in the West should be removed. We should also change our laws to ensure that Muslim citizens who advocate sharia, preach Jihad, the inequality of “infidels” etc should have their citizenship revoked and be deported back to their country of origin.

Fitzgerald: Keep them out

"...the rush to the gates of the embassies and consulates of the Western nations with requests for visas in order to reside permanently in those countries..." -- from this article

They must not be allowed in. For the safety of our own citizens in the West, we can't take any more Muslims, and certainly not the most dangerous of all, the Shock Troops of the Lesser Jihad, the local Arabs who were carefully renamed the "Palestinians." They have proven to be at the center of many terrorist plots and schemes. And then they are suddenly identified demurely, so often, as having been "born in Jordan" or "born in Israel" -- and the word "Palestinian" that they always emphasize so often, suddenly disappears.

They are a specific threat to Jews, even a mortal threat. Would the American government knowingly allow into this country, say, neo-Nazis? No. Would it allow in to this country, knowingly, the most extreme white-supremacist followers of Eugene Terre Blanche in South Africa, people who would bring in their mental baggage, say, to this country a desire to reduce the black population to a state of permanent economic, social, and political inferiority? Would they allow in such people when it was clear that their ideology was not merely a personal one, but was so ingrained that it could not be uprooted, and was passed on from generation to generation -- as is Islam?

Whether ... Israel existed or didn't, whether or not we were in Iraq or not, they would be trying to kill us, because it is a dictate of their religion, at least a part of it. And we have to defend ourselves."
-Tom Tancredo (R-CO)


If the trend in the UK is any indication, then the trend towards integrating Moslems into free societies will be a dismal failure.

. . . there is no Western country with an Islamic fraction above 5% where Muslims have not demanded special treatment, usually at cost to their host societies and their "infidel" neighbors. They usually get what they demand, owing to Westerners' tendency to defer to "religious" sentiment and our awareness of the demonstrated propensity toward violence of Muslims at a sufficient concentration. The process tends to escalate: small demands, once conceded, are followed by progressively larger ones. The early, small concessions tend to reduce resistance to the later, larger ones. Over time, Islam acquires a superior status, recognized in law and custom even if never explicitly named, and Muslims are considered exempt from requirements and constraints that bind all other persons.

from Pedestrian Infidel blogspot

Integration is difficult for the Muslim, too, since his religion forbids true integration. Muslims are exhorted to set themselves apart from the kufar, or infidels. So not only do we have a problem of integrating these people, but we also have a problem with them because they feel superior to us. This is further complicated by the fact that Muslims do not- will not- recognize- man-made, secular laws. Any man-made law is inferior, very inferior, to the laws as laid out by Allah and the Prophet Muhammad in the Shari’ah.

UK Muslims want veils, not integration

Still, the next time there is unrest, the mainstream media will blame the British government for not working to integrate the country's Muslims. "Muslims will not waver over veils," by Jonathan Wynne-Jones in the Sunday Telegraph, with thanks to High:

Britain's Muslim community overwhelmingly believes that women should be allowed to wear the veil, despite fears that it presents a barrier to integration, a study has found.

Almost nine in 10 Muslims think that any government moves to ban the veil would hurt social cohesion.

Schools already have the power to ask pupils to remove the niqab - which covers the entire face apart from a slit for the eyes - to improve safety, security and learning.

There have been calls for a wider debate on whether it is appropriate for the full veil to be worn in public at all. But a Gallup Poll to be published this week found most Muslims firm in the belief that Islamic women should be free to wear it.

While 55 per cent of all those polled thought that removing the veil was vital for integration, only 13 per cent of Muslims agreed.

Instead, they thought that the Government needed to change its economic and political policies toward Islamic countries and show greater respect to Islam.

The intrepid Paul Williams has a report in Canada Free Press (thanks to all who sent this in) about his visit to Islamberg, New York, a camp run by the jihadist Jamaat ul-Fuqra group. The inhabitants wouldn't let him into the compound, but he talked to some of the locals, and found out a good deal:

Springtime in Islamberg
Radical Muslim paramilitary compound flourishes in upper New YorkState
Islamberg also has a website with photos: http://www.islamberg.org/

By Paul L. Williams Ph.D., (author of THE DAY OF ISLAM)
With the able assistance of Douglas Hagmann, Bill Krayer and Michael Travis

Friday, May 11, 2007 http://www.canadafreepress.com/2007/paul-williams051107.htm

Situated within a dense forest at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains on the outskirts of Hancock, New York, Islamberg is not an ideal place for a summer vacation unless, of course, you are an exponent of the Jihad or a fan of Osama bin Laden.

The 70 acre complex is surrounded with "No trespassing" signs; the rocky terrain is infested with rattlesnakes; and the woods are home to black bears, coyotes, wolves, and a few bobcats.

The entrance to the community is at the bottom of a very steep hill that is difficult to navigate even on a bright sunny day in May. The road, dubbed Muslim Lane, is unpaved and marred by deep crevices that have been created by torrential downpours. On a wintry day, few, save those with all terrain vehicles, could venture forth from the remote encampment.

A sentry post has been established at the base of the hill.

The sentry, at the time of this visit, is an African American dressed in Islamic garb - - a skull cap, a prayer shawl, and a loose fitting shalwat kameez. He instructs us to turn around and leave. "Our community is not open to visitors," he says.

Behind the sentry and across a small stream stand dozens of inhabitants of the compound - - the men wearing skull caps and loose fitting tunics, the women in full burqa. They appear ready to deal with any unauthorized intruders.

The hillside is blighted by rusty trailers that appear to be without power or running water and a number of outhouses. The scent of raw sewage is in the air.

The place is even off limits to the local undertaker who says that he has delivered bodies to the complex but has never been granted entrance. "They come and take the bodies from my hearse. They won't allow me to get past the sentry post. They say that they want to prepare the bodies for burial. But I never get the bodies back. I don't know what's going on there but I don't think it's legal."

On the other side of the hill where few dare to go is a tiny village replete with a make-shift learning center (dubbed the "International Quranic Open University"); a trailer converted into a Laundromat; a small, green community center; a small and rather squalid grocery store; a newly constructed majid; over forty clapboard homes; and scores of additional trailers.

It is home to hundreds - - all in Islamic attire, and all African-Americans. Most drive late model SUVs with license plates from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The locals say that some work as tollbooth operators for the New York State Thruway, while others are employed at a credit card processing center that maintains confidential financial records.

While buzzing with activity during the week, the place becomes a virtual hive on weekends. The guest includes arrivals from the inner cities of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania and, occasionally, white-robed dignitaries in Ray-Bans from the Middle East.

Venturing into the complex last summer, Douglas Hagmann, an intrepid investigator and director of the Northeast Intelligence Service, came upon a military training area at the eastern perimeter of the property. The area was equipped with ropes hanging from tall trees, wooden fences for scaling, a make-shift obstacle course, and a firing range. Hagmann said that the range appeared to have been in regular use.

Islamberg is not as benign as a Buddhist monastery or a Carmelite convent. Nearly every weekend, neighbors hear sounds of gunfire. Some, including a combat veteran of the Vietnam War, have heard the bang of small explosives. None of the neighbors wished to be identified for fear of "retaliation." "We don't even dare to slow down when we drive by," one resident said. "They own the mountain and they know it and there is nothing we can do about it but move, and we can't even do that. Who wants to buy a property near that?"

Islamberg's Grocery Store

The complex serves to scare the bejeesus out of the local residents. "If you go there, you better wear body armor," a customer at the Circle E Diner in Hancock said. "They have armed guards and if they shoot you, nobody will find your body."

At Cousins, a watering hole in nearby Deposit, a barfly, who didn't wish to be identified, said: "The place is dangerous. You can hear gunfire up there. I can't understand why the FBI won't shut it down."

Islamberg is a branch of Muslims of the Americas Inc., a tax-exempt organization formed in 1980 by Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, who refers to himself as "the sixth Sultan Ul Faqr," Gilani, has been directly linked by court documents to Jamaat ul-Fuqra or "community of the impoverished," an organization that seeks to "purify" Islam through violence.

Though primarily based in Lahore, Pakistan, Jamaat ul-Fuqra has operational headquarters in New York and openly recruits through various social service organizations in the U.S., including the prison system. Members live in hamaats or compounds, such as Islamberg, where they agree to abide by the laws of Jamaat ul-Fuqra, which are considered to be above local, state and federal authority. Additional hamaats have been established in Hyattsville, Maryland; Red House, Virginia; Falls Church, Virginia; Macon, Georgia; York, South Carolina; Dover, Tennessee; Buena Vista, Colorado; Talihina, Oklahoma; Tulane Country, California; Commerce, California; and Onalaska, Washington. Others are being built, including an expansive facility in Sherman, Pennsylvania.

Before becoming a citizen of Islamberg or any of the other Fuqra compounds, the recruits - - primarily inner city black men who became converts in prison - - are compelled to sign an oath that reads: "I shall always hear and obey, and whenever given the command, I shall readily fight for Allah's sake."

In the past, thousands of members of the U.S. branches of Jamaat ul-Fuqra traveled to Pakistan for paramilitary training, but encampments, such as Islamberg, are now capable of providing book-camp training so raw recruits are no longer required to travel abroad amidst the increased scrutiny of post 9/11.

Over the years, numerous members of Jamaat ul-Fuqra have been convicted in US courts of such crimes as conspiracy to commit murder, firebombing, gun smuggling, and workers' compensation fraud. Others remain leading suspects in criminal cases throughout the country, including ten unsolved assassinations and seventeen fire-bombings between 1979 and 1990.

The criminal charges against the group and the criminal convictions are not things of the past. In 2001, a resident of a California compound was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of a sheriff's deputy; another was charged with gun-smuggling' and twenty-four members of the Red House community were convicted of firearms violations.

By 2004 federal investigators uncovered evidence that linked both the DC "sniper killer" John Allen Muhammed and "Shoe Bomber" Richard Reid to the group and reports surfaced that Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was captured and beheaded in the process of attempting to obtain an interview with Sheikh Gilani in Pakistan.

Even though Jamaat ul-Fuqra has been involved in terror attacks and sundry criminal activities, recruited thousands of members from federal and state penal systems, and appears to be operating paramilitary facilities for militant Muslims, it remains to be placed on the official US Terror Watch List. On the contrary, it continues to operate, flourish, and expand as a legitimate nonprofit, tax-deductible charity.

Islamberg not the only jihadist compound in the U.S.

A follow-up to this story. "Radical Muslim paramilitary compounds flourishing across the United States: Islamberg not the only radical Muslim compound flourishing in North America," by Judi McLeod for Canada Free Press, with thanks to WriterMom:

...Islamberg is just one of what is thought to be a half dozen radical Muslim paramilitary compounds flourishing across the United States, this one nestled in dense forest at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains on the outskirts of Hancock, New York.

Canada, home to at least one such compound, is no safe ground....

Hundreds of letters have deluged (CFP) since it published a story with pictures of Springtime in Islamberg, written by The Day of Islam author Dr. Paul Williams with the able assistance of Doug Hagmann, Bill Krayer and Michael Travis.

Many letter writers complain that local authorities are telling them they have never heard of the compound.

Islamberg is an al Fuqra house. "Fuqra has had a disturbing U.S. presence for more than 20 years." (The weekly Standard, March 18, 2002). "Today, half a dozen Fuqra residential compounds in rural hamlets across the country shelter hundreds of members, some of whom, according to intelligence sources, have been trained in the use of weapons and explosives in Pakistan."

In a world where authorities make like terrorism doesn't exist, Fuqra's founder and bossman, Sheikh Mubarik Ali Hasmi Shah Gilani, is not only alive and well -- he has a road "Sheikh Gilani Lane" named after him. This road is not in faraway Pakistan, but right in Charlotte County, Virginia.

Charlotte County is a rural farming community in Central Virginia near the North Carolina border.

Read it all.

Is it possible to assimilate Moslems into our society without changing the society into an Islamic-dominated one?

Here's one "Moslem in America" for you:

Sanctuarified Muslim Thanks America With a Special Salute

Debbie Schlussel: Welcome to D-Mecca, Sanctuary City


"I know I don't have to fit in," she [Ismahan, a computer scientist in
Michigan] said. "I don't think Muslims have to assimilate. We are not treated like Americans. At work, I get up from my desk and go to pray. I thought I would face opposition from my boss. Even before I realized he didn't mind, I thought, 'I have a right to be a Muslim, and I don't have to assimilate.' "
America's Muslims Aren't as Assimilated as You Think

Despite contemporary public opinion -- or perhaps because of it -- Muslim Americans consider Islam their defining characteristic, beyond any national identity. In this way, their experience in the United States resembles that of their co-religionists in Europe, where mosques are also growing, Islamic schools are being built, and practicing the faith is the center of life, particularly for the young generation. In Europe and the United States, young Muslims are
unifying around popular imams they believe understand the challenges they face in Western societies ...

America's Muslims Aren't as Assimilated as You Think


A Dream or a Reality?

It may well be the wish of many of us, especially after viewing the foregoing photo of a Moslem living in our country, that we just get rid of them. Deport them all. But is this dealing with the reality of the uncounted number of illegally-entered, visaed-but-stayed-on-after- visa-expiration "students"--from such Islamic areas as Saudi Arabia and the "Palestinian"-occupied Israeli territories--as well as Moslem green-card holders and "Moslem-American" citizens (an oxymoron)?

Not under our present State Department visa-issuing policies and the Administration climate of viewing Islam as just another "religion" and one "of peace" at that.

Would a change of Administrations bring about a climate favorable to mass deportation of the Moslem squatters in our country? Not if a Democratic Administration nor a Bush-like, Arab-favoring Republican power elite were to hold the reins of government.

What to do then? What can reasonably be expected? Under the most favorable conditions---after a horrific Islamic attack on the United States--the deportation of illegally-residing Moslems, especially Moslems with criminal records, and all Moslems engaging in or providing aid to Islamic terrorism--the technique of warfare favored by Islam ever since it was founded by the cunning desert brigand.

That leaves us with the legal Moslem "immigrant" and the Moslem holder of American citizenship.

What can be done about those?

Stay tuned, I'll think of something. Or better yet, somebody else will, and I'll find it, grab it, and post it here.

In the meantime, let's look at the s0-called "American" Moslems (or Moslem-"Americans") and what they are doing to our country:

[NOTE: 10-01-08 The following links will most probably not get you into the "Islamic Danger" blog.

I will migrate the following posts, as soon as I can spare the time, so that you CAN read them. Leslie White]

The Logistical Problems of Deporting All Islamic enemies--aliens and citizens

"We have the choice either to expel the current threat and the people bearing it, and then to contain that threat within certain boundaries, or we can continue with business as before, as the states and elites of Europe continued to do all through the 1930s..."

The questions I want to address are simple: where do you send them and how do you get them there? This is not like Czechoslovakia or Poland expelling Germans, or Turkey expelling Greeks. Muslims cannot simply be forced across the border into ‘their’ country. First, Britain is an island. Second, no European country ‘bordering’ Britain would want 2 million angry, impoverished refugees. This would not even be like the Partition of India. The refugees can’t walk or pack onto trains for the long ride out.

We are talking about forcing people onto airplanes and flying them somewhere. Between 1.5 and 2 million people would need a lot of planes flying for a long time. They won’t just sit quietly and enjoy the in-flight movie. That’s the whole point of expelling them, remember. The flights would require a significant number of guards on board to prevent the refugees from storming the cockpit.

If you think that all Iranians are united behind the enemy of the Jews and America--the disgusting little gnome Ahmadinejad--take another look at the legacy of Persia: an Indo-European civilization. Iranians (Persians) are NOT Arabs!

Whether Shi-ite or Sunni, Mohammedanism is a foreign ideology to Persians--the ancient people of Iran.

The Muslim Brotherhood - Nazi connection

Hasan al-Banna
Founder of the Muslim Brotherhood
Sought to restore worldwide Islamic Caliphate
Was assassinated in 1949

Born into a poor family in southern Egypt on October 14, 1906, Hasan al-Banna was a schoolteacher who in 1928 founded the Muslim Brotherhood, considered to be the first of the modern Islamic fundamentalist movements.

As a child, al-Banna was attracted to the extremist and xenophobic aspects of Islam which were hostile to Western secularism and to its system of rights, particularly women’s rights. While still in his teens, the young al-Banna and friends (they referred to each other as "brethren") met frequently to discuss the situation in the Middle East, to argue about the ills of Arab society, and to lament the decline of Islam. Their angst was in large part a reaction to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, the end of the Muslim Caliphate, the British occupation of Egypt, and the resulting exposure of Arab society to Western values.

For al-Banna, as for many other Muslims worldwide, the end of the Caliphate, although brought about by secular Muslim Turks, was a sacrilege against Islam for which they blamed the non-Muslim West. It was to strike back against these evils that al-Banna founded the Muslim Brotherhood, which began as a kind of youth club where the members preached, to anyone who would listen, about the need for moral reform in the Arab world.

But al-Banna’s antipathy towards Western modernity soon moved him to shape the Brotherhood into an organization seeking to check the secularist tendencies in Muslim society by asserting a return to ancient and traditional Islamic values. Al-Banna recruited followers from a vast cross-section of Egyptian society by addressing issues such as colonialism, public health, educational policy, natural resources management, social inequalities, Arab nationalism, the weakness of the Islamic world and the growing conflict in Palestine. Among the perspectives he drew on to address these issues were the anti-capitalist doctrines of European Marxism and especially fascism.

As the Brotherhood expanded during the 1930s and extended its activities well beyond its original religious revivalism, al-Banna began dreaming a greater Muslim dream: the restoration of the Caliphate. And it was this dream, which he believed could only become a reality by means of the sword, that won the hearts and minds of a growing legion of followers. Al-Banna would describe, in inflammatory speeches, the horrors of hell expected for heretics, and consequently, the need for Muslims to return to their purest religious roots, re-establish the Caliphate, and resume the great and final holy war, or jihad, against the non-Muslim world. Al-Banna spelled out his ideas in a major document titled “The Way of Jihad.”

The first big step on the path to the international jihad that al-Banna envisioned came in the form of trans-national terrorism during “The Great Arab Revolt” of 1936-1939, when one of the most famous of the Muslim Brotherhood’s leaders, the Hajj Amin al-Husseini, Grand Mufti (Supreme Muslim religious leader) of Jerusalem, incited his followers to a three-year war against the Jews in Palestine and against the British who administered the Mandate.

In 1936 the Brotherhood had about 800 members, but by 1938, just two years into the “Revolt,” its membership had grown to almost 200,000, with fifty branches in Egypt alone. The organization established mosques, schools, sport clubs, factories and a welfare service network. By the end of the 1930s there were more than a half million active members registered, in more than two thousand branches across the Arab world.

Under al-Banna’s stewardship, the Brotherhood developed a network of underground cells, stole weapons, trained fighters, formed secret assassination squads, founded sleeper cells of subversive supporters in the ranks of the army and police, and waited for the order to go public with terrorism, assassinations, and suicide missions.

It was during this time that the Brotherhood found a soulmate in Nazi Germany. The Reich offered great power connections to the movement, but the relationship brokered by the Brotherhood was more than a marriage of convenience. Long before the war, al-Banna had developed an Islamic religious ideology that foreshadowed Hitler’s Nazism. Both movements sought world conquest and domination. Both were triumphalist and supremacist: in Nazism the Aryan must rule, while in al-Banna’s Islam, the Muslim religion must hold dominion. Both advocated subordination of the individual to a folkish central power. Both were explicitly anti-nationalist in the sense that they believed in the liquidation of the nation-state in favor of a trans-national unifying community: in Islam the umma (community of all believers); and in Nazism the herrenvolk (master race). Both worshipped the unifying totalitarian figure of the Caliph or Führer. And both rabidly hated the Jews and sought their destruction.

As the Brotherhood’s political and military alliance with Nazi Germany developed, these parallels facilitated practical interactions that created a full-blown alliance, with all the pomp and panoply of formal state visits, de facto ambassadors, and overt as well as sub rosa joint ventures. Al-Banna’s followers easily transplanted into the Arab world a newly Nazified form of traditional Muslim Jew-hatred, with Arab translations of Mein Kampf (translated into Arabic as “My Jihad”) and other Nazi anti-Semitic works, including Der Sturmer hate-cartoons, adapted to portray the Jew as the demonic enemy of Allah.

When World War II broke out, al-Banna worked to firm up a formal alliance with Hitler and Mussolini. He sent them letters and emissaries, and urged them to assist him in his struggle against the British and the westernized regime of Egypt's King Farouk. The Intelligence Service of the Muslim Brotherhood vigorously collected information on the heads of the regime in Cairo and on the movements of the British army, offering this and more to the Germans in return for closer relations.

When the question of Palestine came before the United Nations, al-Banna and Amin al-Husseini jointly urged the Arab world to unite in opposition to the creation of Israel. The two men saw in the UN resolution for the partition of Palestine an example of the “Jewish world conspiracy,” even though the plan provided for an Arab state in Palestine alongside the Jewish one. But in al-Banna's estimation, the creation of a state for the Arabs of Palestine was less vital than the eradication of Zionism and the annihilation of the region's Jews.

Troubled by the Brotherhood's rising influence and popularity, as well as by rumors that that the organization was plotting a coup against the Egyptian government, Prime Minister Mahmoud an-Nukrashi Pasha disbanded the group in December 1948 -- seizing its assets and incarcerating many of its members. Less than three weeks later, Pasha was assassinated by a member of the Brotherhood.

Then on February 12, 1949, al-Banna was shot dead by an assassin -- most likely an Egyptian government agent -- in a crowded Cairo market.

The mouth of the Gulf of Lepanto was the scene of the great sea fight in which the naval power of the Ottoman Empire was nearly completely destroyed by the united papal, Spanish, Habsburg and Venetian forces (Battle of Lepanto, October 7, 1571).

[Read all about it at

The Venetians, on the left flank of the battle line, were especially passionate. Not long before, the Turks had so battered an island port maintained by Venetians (and others) that the Venetian commander, Marcantonio Bragadino appealed for a truce. The Turks promised him and his subjects safe passage — and then took him prisoner, beat him, cut off his nose and ears, put a collar on him, and made him crawl like a dog before the conquering army. In a little cage, he was hoisted up on the mast of the galley so that all in the fleet and on land could see him. Then he was brought down flayed mercilessly, his skin carefully stripped from his body as he died (the skin was later stuffed with straw and sent off to Constantinople as a trophy). Thousands of Venetians and others were slaughtered on the spot, or driven off in captivity for service on Turkish galleys or in Turkish harems.

But other elements of the Christian fleets were also angry. For decades now, the Turks had used their near-supremacy in the Mediterranean to make constant raids on the Christian communities near to the sea, and hauled away young women and men for the harems, and stronger men for the galleys.


Battle of Lepanto

In 1372, the rivalry between Genoese and Venetians merchants in Famagusta was causing problems. When fighting broke out over an incident at the coronation of King Peter II, some Genoese lost both their lives and property. In revenge, the Genoese occupied parts of Cyprus and Famagusta, forcing out the traders to nearby Nicosia. The Genoese were thrown out in 1464, but the damage to trade had been done.

In 1489, the Venetians moved their capital city from Nicosia to Famagusta, and they too began a massive programme of improving the town's defensive walls, adding towers and cannon posts

The Siege of Famagusta, North Cyprus

Their precautions were justified when the Ottoman navy arrived in North Cyprus in 1570 and laid siege to Famagusta. Lala Mustafa Pasha tried to take the town in October 1570, but finding the fortifications too strong, decided to sit out the winter at his camp in nearby Pomodamo. Extra troops arrived in April 1571, and the siege began in earnest. By May, the Turks had managed to dig under the arsenal tower, but the plot was discovered. The defenders of Famagusta took the gunpowder destined to blow up the tower for themselves, and literally fired it back at the Turks!

However, by August the citizens had run out of food, ammunition, and men fit to fight. On 1 August, 1571, the town surrendered to the Ottoman invaders. By the end of 1571, the whole of Cyprus had fallen under Ottoman rule.

"Famagusta lies near the center of a long scallop of bay on the eastern shore of the island (Cyprus) , facing Syria. In the 13th Century it was the wealthiest port in the Mediterranean….it is surrounded by massive stone walls that were reinforced in the 16th century by Venetian military engineers bracing for the arrival of the Ottomans. The invasion finally came in 1570….50,000 Turks came ashore in the withering heat of midsummer, led by a sadist named Lala Mustafa. After sacking Nicosia and killing 20,000 inhabitants, Mustafa led his forces against Famagusta, which was defended by a garrison of Venetian soldiers."

"The Turks hammered the thick stone walls with an estimated 100,000 cannonballs until the Venetian commander, Marcantonio Brigadino, finally ran out of supplies. Bragadino arranged for peaceful terms of surrender, but the Turks - enraged by the losses they had suffered while taking the city - started torturing and killing Bragadino's soldiers. When Bragadino objected, Mustafa ordered that his ears and nose be cut off and that he be skinned alive. The skin was stuffed with straw and mounted on a wagon, and legend has it that Bragadino lived long enough to behold his own gruesome double paraded through the streets."

Now you can see why the papal, Spanish, Habsburg and Venetian forces were outraged by the usual Islamic horrors perpetrated upon the defenders and inhabitants of Famagusta

Islam, a Dangerous Political Ideology! -part one

Nov 23, 2003


Introduction: "Many are schooled, yet only a few are educated." Many worship this dangerous political ideology posing as a religion without even once reading the Quran, Nahjol Balagheh (Ali's Book), any Hadith (Islamic Scholar's quotes), nor the history of Islam! Majority of Muslims are Muslim by tradition! They have never studied Islam nor Quran. What they believe that they know of Islam, is what their Ayatollahs, Hojatol Eslams, Marja'e Taghlid, Parents, clerics, schools, text books, authorities & society in general told them about Islam! It is even specifically said in the past that "One cannot & should not read Quran in Arabic"! One should always listen to the second hand stories made up by Akhoonds & interpretations of Quran! For a long time they were recommending not to read Quran in Arabic! what were they afraid of? Just read the two articles "Quran on Non Muslims" & "Quran on Women" in IPC Website, article section & you will understand what the clerics were afraid of! They were afraid that the public would have read the clear text of Quran in Arabic or even the uncensored translation in Persian like "23 Years" a study of Quran by Professor Ali Dashti (also available to download for free at IPC library, book download) banned by IRI, & they would finally judge for themselves, that what kind of garbage they been worshiping for centuries!

Persians were fooled & kept in the dark for centuries with beautiful made up dreams & stories of braveries of Muslim Arab Saints, Imams & Prophet! The brain wash so strong & to the point of not even making the true text of Quran available or translated, & not even recommended for them to read! Muslim Clerics purposely kept our people in the ignorance & darkness of history.

Quran unlike the bible with so many versions, translations & interpretations, has only one & only one version & one clear original translation. Quran unlike Torat or bible, has been written in a very clear writing & format, so any person with a two bit sense & a brain could read & understand it. There is only one version of Quran & that is the original version which has been translated in many languages & it is simple & clear to understand. The funny thing is that, only the Muslim blind followers of Islam are the people who have never even read the whole Quran, now forget even understanding it! If one logical mind reads Quran for once, it will be impossible for him to keep on believing in it as a holy book to follow. It will also be impossible for him to even imagine that there is possibly an element can be existed with the name of "Islamic Democracy"!

The Body of Logic: Over the years of our struggle, I have been preaching about the true nature of Islam. Eventually the world is coming to understand the exact nature of Islam. Islam is not a normal religion; it is not just another typical religion. Islam, is a dangerous political ideology. you might ask why? Lets expand on this:

1. Islam is the only religion in which it's prophet's primary role was not as a missionare of God, a cleric or a religious figure! Muhammad's primary role was a "Ruler", or better said "The Head of The Government". Muhammad was first, a leader & the head of the nation of Islam. He was the Khalifat of Muslims & the ruler of Omat al Islam, then came his second role as the religious leader. Eventually these two mixed up together to a point that the Government became part of the Religion.

Muhammad is the only prophet that actually ruled as a political leader & a "Head of a State"! There is no other prophet in the history of the world that was also a head of the state! According to Islam, every aspect of the society including, the government, the judicial, the economical, the social, & every other root & branch of an Islamic community is a sub branch & part of the Religion of Islam. Islam is not just another religion. Islam is a way of life in every aspect. Islam is a political ideology which rules the nation.

This tradition had started with the prophet of Islam, Muhammad & it went on during the four Khalifats of Rashedin, Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman, & of course Ali. It then continued just like that during Bani Omayed, Bani Abbas, on going to all the dynasties & rulers of the Islamic Empire in the history of earth.

2. All three branches of government, the judicial, the executive, & the legislative branch were always under the leadership & control of the Khalifat of Islam since the beginning of Islam. It started with Muhammad the Arab Prophet & it is still going on as we see it in Islamic Republic of Iran, Afghanistan & other true Muslim nations.

In Islam there is a law which is very clear:

"Khelafat is a part of Dianat" meaning that "Government is a part of Religion." This law has been a major Rule of Islam since the beginning of it about 1500 years ago until this day. On the other hand, there is no possibility of a true Islamic Nation existing without the absolute Supreme Cleric Leadership of the Khalifat or Velayate Faghih. This is the basic fundamental of Islam. This brings us to the fact of the Antagonistic conflict between Democracy & Islam.

3. The fundamental of Democracy is the Separation of Church of & State. Without it, there can be no democracy existing. Islam clearly denies this fact & basic rule of democracy!

4. Democracy tells us about the limited power of all three branches of the government. In Islam, all three branches are under the power of the Supreme Cleric Leader like Muhammad the Arab Prophet, Ali the fourth Khalifat, or Imam Khomeini, & now Imam Seyed Ali Khamenei!

5. Democracy teaches us about the limitations to the power of the heads of state. President or Prime Minister's power is limited by the other branches of government. In Islam Khalifat has no limitation. Khalifat is the absolute ruler of the land, direct descendant of Allah (God) like Muhammad, or he is the missionare & voice of God on Earth like Imam Khomeini or Imam Khamenei.

6. Democracy has term limits for the leader of the land. It has a four, five, or seven years of term limit for the President or Prime Minister to be elected by the masses after each term limit. Islam has no term limit. Khalifat, Velayate Faghih, or Imam rules the Islamic Empire or nation indefinitely until his death! It started since Muhammad started his government until his death. Afterward he chose his disciple & next Khalifat which was Abu Bakr & it went on for 1500 years or so until this day that we see Imam Khomeini chose Imam Khamenei to be the next Khalifat al Muslemin!

7. In a Democracy the ruler has limited political powers only as the leader of the executive branch. In Islam the leader has the Absolute General Power over All Aspects of All Muslim's Lives! He has the absolute right to say or do absolutely everything in relation to politics, religion, judicial, economic, social, war, peace, life or death & every other angle of the nation & the people in it or as said in Islam:

Khalifat has the say over all matters in relation to the Omat & the Khelafat. Not to be even talking about the power of veto!

8. Islam have made it clear through the years, since the very beginning, that it is a religion of Expansionism. It must expand at any cost. It has been clearly said in Islam that:

A Muslim's duty is to expand Islam by any means. Muslim should take over Apostates & Infidel's lands. Islam is the last religion in the world & Muhammad was the last prophet in the world. All other people believing in all other religions must bring Islam. Bible, Torat, etc. all promise the coming of the Islam's Prophet, Muhammad; therefore, Muhammad is the only just & last prophet in the world & all should become Muslim. Now, when Muslim take over all other lands from all other people believing in all other religions, they must deal with them in the same manner. Christian, Jew, Zoroastrian, Atheist, etc. are all the same in the eyes of Islam. The way to deal with them is to give them these choices:

a. To bring Islam & become a Muslim. b. To pay up "Jiziyeh" or Jaziyeh (Ransom) to Muslim government, every year, to remain to his own faith. c. To be eliminated & beheaded by the sword of Islam.

As we mentioned before, there was always the fourth choice, to leave one's land & home in to the exile. When Muslim took over Persian Empire, many have chosen the fourth choice & fled to India, those are the Parsi people of India who are still Zoroastrian. The perfect example of these choices of Islam is what they done to Iran. Many Persians became Muslim by no choice, many paid ransom for centuries to remain Zoroastrian, many murdered by Muslims in a way that they either fought the oppressive Muslim occupational government to death or they were simply murdered, raped, beheaded by the Muslim, like Omar ordered the beheadings of thousands of Persians. Ali the Shiite symbol & the fourth holy Saint of world's Shiites, also done the same to non Muslims & the POWs of the Kheibar Battle in Arabia. He either personally or by his henchmen murdered over 600 prisoners of war by beheading them, many by his own sword.

If you pay a close attention, you will see that Muhammad started the tradition of Terror, by assassinating his opponents in Arabia. He used to send midnight assassins to their houses & kill them in the middle of their sleep. He used to also attack the caravans, steal, murder & rape the opponents, way back then. this was the methods of the Prophet of God! Same tradition went on even during first Imam of Shiites, Ali & then the second & third one Hassan & Hussein. they all murdered the so called apostates, simply because they refused to become Muslim. Hussein himself ordered the murder of many Persian Freedom Fighters.

Why do you think that many of these so called Imams of Shiite got assassinated?! Obviously Persians & Shiites made them the martyrs & saints & also legends! But the fact of the matter was that people were fed up with their oppression & they killed them by assassination.

Mid-east Map

Look at the myths of Ali that would not hurt an ant or a spider, Hussein who was the innocent & paid with his life & his followers lives in deserts of Karbala, etc. The truth of the matter is that, the same innocent Ali who would not kill an ant or hurt a fly, would behead 600 POW of war many of them by his own sword! Hussein did not fight for the truth & justice! He fought Yazid who was his rival, also the legal Khalifat of Muslims. Yazid offered him to join & obey, but Hussein was a thief, & a terrorist who disobeyed Yazid. Also this whole fight was originally over a woman, a very beautiful woman. Besides, Yazid was a far worthier man to rule than the naive, passionate, immature, & emotional Hussein. Yazid was a poet, a writer, a mature governor & a fine politician. And lets not forget all the murders that happened by the order of Hussein in Iran! the true face of Hussein is a face of a bandit, thief, womanizer, murderer & an outlaw, but Persians & Shiites made him a Saint!

The depth of the nonsense created by Muslim is unbelievable for the logical mind to digest, but it is clear as a whistle to the historians. Muslim Scholars can fool the illiterate public of the fanatical Muslims, but they can never feed all this garbage to the knowledgeable historians & history enthusiasts.

Civilizations Struggling Not To Die: 1. Persian Empire (Present Iran)

We have been struggling with Islam for 1400 years now. We are still alive! Lets keep our holy Persian Culture alive so we will not join the long list of old civilizations extinct by the Islam & presently called "Just another Arab Muslim State"!

the reason we are still alive is that we still have our:

Persian Language Persian Traditions Persian Celebrations (Norouz, Mehregan, Sadeh, Yalda Night, Chahar Shanbe Souri, Sizda Be Dar, etc.) Persian Values Persian Philosophy (Zoroastrianism, etc.) Persian Literature Persian Traditional Music Persian Poetry (Ferdousi, etc.) Persian History

Yazdgird III, Rostam Farokhzad, Apranik, Babak-e Khoramdin, Maziar, Banoo, Negan, Abu Moslem, Yaqoob Leise Saffari, Ferdousi Toosi, Dr. Ahmad Kasravi, Dr. Kourosh Aryamanesh, Dr. Cyrus Elahi, General Ayat Mohaqeqi & thousands of others did not die in vein. Prove it that they did not die in vein.

They died so Iran could live, so Iran would not become another Arab Muslim Nation, another Iranistan (Pahlavi II), another Cesspool.

10. Lets take a good look at the fundamentals of Islam, what has Islam brought to us Persians? A Religion of Terror which openly preaches martyrdom & destruction of all Non Muslim's (exact verses of Quran listed on other articles of IPC) lives & property, a prophet who was a thief, bandit, assassin, murderer, rapist, child molester, & most of all a charlatan! The most fanatical, ignorant, superstitious religion which ever existed in the whole world! What is the true legacy of Islam?

Aba: Islamic Cape Amameh: Turban Ghaba: another Islamic cover Hejab: women's covering Chaghchoor: women's head cover Charghad: Islamic Scarf Lachak: Traditional Islamic Scarf Roobandeh: Women's face cover Maghana'eh: Women's specific head cover Chador: Veil Giveh: Islamic shoes Nalein: Islamic Flip Flop Aftabeh: Islamic toilet Pitcher Tonban: Islamic Pajama Quran: A 1500 years old pile of garbage torn paper, creation of a sick evil charlatan's mind called Muhammad the Bandit. Muhammad: the prophet of terror himself, a delusional, epileptic, schizophrenic, pedophile, child molester, murderer, assassin, rapist, assaulter of women, female slave holder, criminal charlatan! and of course, 1400 years full of history of blood, murder & terror, Islamic Style, which we are still involved with it specially during the last 22 & 1/2 years as we know it as the Islamic Republic of Iran! And we are still denying that the true Islam is not what IRI practices or Taliban practices, but the true Islam is beautiful as Roses & holier than the holy! Give yourselves a break & open your eyes & mind & smell the true stench of Islam all around you & not just inside the mosque!

11. Do you possibly believe that it is only us, the historians that know of the true nature of Islam? do not kid yourselves! Do you really believe that the President of United States, the Vice, & as a matter of fact the whole government of United States & rest of the Western & civilized world does not know of the true nature of Islam?! Of course they do! All logical knowledgeable politicians do know about the true nature of Islam. Then you might ask that why are they saying & pretending that the true Islam is innocent & all these terrorist movements are sacrilege to Allah & Islam?! I tell you why!

US & The West cannot possibly declare war on Islam & all Muslim. It will be a loosing battle, the same battle that the communism lost, the same battle that USSR lost! Religion is so deep in the blood of the masses & Islam is proposing itself as a religion; therefore, it will be disastrous to fight against people's religion. Remember that religion is the opiate of the masses!

Another reason that the West specifically US, will not declare a war on Islam, is that the best way to fight this so called religion & a dangerous political ideology, is to attack the very roots of it & not the pretty branches of it! By roots, I mean the Fundamentalist Islam which is the original Islam & by the pretty branches, I mean the Neo Islam which is trying to sell the civilized face of Islam to the world. If the West manages to destroy the world wide terrorism of the Islamic kind, it will manage to destroy the fundamentalist Islam & that is where Islam gets it's power from. Once the roots of an ideology is destroyed, the branches shall fall! Neo Islam of the modern Muslims like Shariati, Soroush, Bazargan & Yazdi is nothing but a beautiful facade without a content. Once you take the fundamentals of this ideology out of it, then you have to revise it, & revisionism is worst than the "Death of an Ideology"! the destruction of Soviet Union started when they started to revise Communism. First they revised a bit here & a bit there, until there was nothing left of Leninism & Stalinism. And next thing you know, Communism, Russian style, died out! The power of Islam comes from it's fundamentals, it's fanatical beliefs to control the cattle-like masses of illiterate people & to keep the masses ignorant. Once you take that out of Islam, there will be nothing left but the liquidy Soda Pop Islam of Shariati which is a revision of Islam & an insult to the true Islam. By then, most of the battle will be already fought for!

So have in mind that to declare war on the whole Islam, is nothing but a bad tactic to achieve the ultimate strategy of winning the war against Islam. So why not separate the two Islam to the:

Good Islam, Revised Islam, Neo Islam, True Islam, Holy Islam & Bad Islam, Fundamentalist Islam, Fanatical Islam, Fake Islam, Terrorist Islam

And by the end, when the world's battle against Fundamentalist Islamic Terrorism is done & it will be won, then there will be nothing left of the Islam, but only a facade wallpaper made of revised meaningless confused politically correct Islam of the Modern Neo Islamists which does not even look, sound, or tastes like Islam! And of course this is the best way to get rid of the power of this ideology, divide it in two fractions of fundamentalist & moderate or reformist & then just sit & watch them eat each other alive & chew each other out! Politics at it's best with a spice of logic! So West, specifically US, is doing the best tactic that they can play for the ultimate strategy of weakening Islam & making it loose it's credibility. It is all well calculated my friends.

12. Why is Islam & Islamic nations way behind the world? As I, mentioned in the past, we can notice many reasons:

a. Lack of individual freedom in Islam. b. Lack of independence of free thought in Islam. c. Renaissance happened in Europe, but it never happened in Islamic Nations! There was a Martin Luther in the West, but there was never one in Islamic world! d. Islam did not give anything to history of human civilization, but it only took & took from the cultures which it destroyed, until there was nothing left to take!

Lets expand on this, When Islam invaded the civilized world, it took over one of the two major super powers (Persia) & it took over all Asian colonies of the other one (Rome). Now, if at the time, Islam had a great navy & capability to invade Europe through Constantinaple, & during it's golden days, then Italy would have been also a Shiite Hole like Iran! Thanks & many fortunes that they could not invade main land Europe back then, or the whole Europe would also end up as backwarded as the Muslim states are! Europe would have ended up being as the middle east or North Africa now!

When Islam took over the so many of the world's civilizations, it had nothing to give, yet it had everything to take & gain. If we study the whole history of Islamic Empire in it's glory days, we will notice that the whole Empire ran by the ingenuity of the occupied country's specialists. All the people who ran the Islamic Empire from scientists, politicians, poets, artists, philosophers, writers, etc. were mostly Persian & leastly from other destroyed occupied civilizations under Islam like Egypt, Cartage or Phoenicia! The Arab Savage Barbarians of the peninsula truly had nothing to offer! Due to the reactionary & oppressive nature of Islam, the Islamic Regime did not let any new creative ingenuity to grow in the Empire, yet purposely, it helped killing every ounce of ingenuity & intellectualism which bloomed in the region! Finally all these bloomed flowers from the occupied nations died out & there were nobody else to replace them! suddenly there were left only, Arabs & their oppressed occupied mongrelized nations under occupation with no present or future sign of ingenuity or creation, & thats when Islamic world died out & fell behind the progressive world.

Many, mistakenly name the major Persian minds as Arabic or Islamic! Minds like:

Omar Khayam father of Algebra, Modern Astronomy, & a famous poet Zakaria Razi father of Chemistry Ebne Sina father of Medicine Kharazmi, Birooni, & so many more were all Persian.

Please do not give the credit to Arabs or Muslims! Look at the Moorish example, for about 800 years Moors owned Spain & Iberian Peninsula. The first 400 years, were the glory days of Islam due to the fact that Persians & other defeated civilization's bright minds were carrying the burden of running the Islamic Empire. Even, Booran (Pretty) The Persian Prime Minister of Islamic Empire during Khalifat of Mamoon the Abassids dynasty, during the occupation of Iran by Arab oppressors, daughter of Hassan Sahl was Persian. Yes even the prime minister of Islamic Empire was a Persian Woman! How odd can it get?! the oppressed women of Iran by the evil of Islam, have sent their candidate to the main court house of the Khalifat to rule! and that is what Persian women are made of! during the first 400 years, all the different local khalifats were sending the share of the central Khalifat of Baghdad to the capital, they were all together pillaging & stealing the world, blind! They were united & strong, but during the second 400 years, every little local Khalifat started singing their own songs, & did not send Baghdad's share to them! they all got separated without the support of Baghdad, they all got weak, even the Baghdad Khalifat! And eventually the last strong hold in Europe, the Khalifat of Granada in Spain surrendered & people like El Sid & Queen Isabelle kicked out the last of Muslims out of Iberia. Moorish Empire of Berbers & Arabs destroyed itself in a way & this finished the 800 years of Muslim supremacy in Iberia including Portugal, Spain, & once even as far as the middle of France! Now Muslim Arab Barbarians just occupied Iran for 171 years & finally got kicked out by The Great Yaghoob-e Leis-e Saffari of Saffarids Dynasty, the greatest freedom fighter of them all & the freedom fighting masses of Iran, yet the roots of oppression & the rotting mentality & corps of Islam remained in Iran & in Iranian's brains until it destroyed Iran once more @ 1979 by Khomeini & his Islamic Reaction!

The History of Islamic terror in Iran

By: Amil Imani

The aim of this letter is to address the future generation as well as the current Iranian youth. The time to keep silence has passed and the time to speak of the truth has begun. As I write this letter to you today, I am perplexed and frightened to think about what it will be like when you are born. My mind is filled with uncertainty for your future. My soul is filled with pain and agony of the unknown.

Today, Iran is under the occupation of the most savage form of the Islamic butchers. These are the descendants of the same Islamic butchers who conquered Persia 1400 years ago with the sword of Islam. These are the same creatures that plundered and burned Iran and took Iranian women as slaves to the desert of Arabia. Even now the Islamic Republic is selling the Iranian women in Dubai and other Persian Gulf kingdoms.

We have been witnessing the exact brutalities, savageries and barbarism for the past twenty-six years by the Arab-Islamic fascists upon Iran as our forefathers saw 1400 years ago. There are thousands upon thousands of our countrymen spending their youth in the Arab-Islamic dungeons. People’s rights are being violated on a daily basis in the name of the same Islamic barbarism of 1400 years ago. It is ironic how history keeps repeating itself.

I am telling you this story, partly because it is timely, partly because it is good to know the lessons that history teaches us. Iran did not have to turn out as it did. Truth and provocative ideas ought to be welcomed in our society. Yet, with provocative ideas and opinions one must be ready to embrace death. As we have witnessed, the Islamic zealots do not tolerate opinions contrary to their own. Euripides said many years ago, “A slave is he who cannot speak his thoughts”.

However, death is the last thing on my mind. Actions are needed to correct the past mistakes and that starts with you. You, the born and unborn, must know what is happening in your country and what has led us to where we are today. You must know this and do everything in your power to save your country and her people.

So, this is a message to you and to the future generation. We cannot allow the same ruthless Islamic zealots who went on their roofs calling upon an Arab God, “Allah-o Akbar,” to impose an Islamic revolution on our society, to control and interpret our history. Also, we cannot allow the guardians of the status quo to define and control our future.

You must adhere to the wisdom of Zartushtra, who was a messenger of peace and longevity and eternal love and wisdom. He was also a messenger of “Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds”. History has shown if only Iranians had adhered to those “three” principles, Iran would have remained eternally prosperous and exalted.

Let me tell you who and what the Arabs were before turning Islamic and bringing the wrath of their “Allah” upon Iranians and other nations. Before the advent of Islam, the Arabs were idol worshipers. According to Vaqqidi, the Arabs had 360 gods for each day of the year and the largest and the main God was called “Allah.” They were pagan, a polytheistic culture. One wonders how could a group of desert dwellers, nomads, who lacked culture and civilization, possibly attack an old Empire and advance so quickly!

The Sassanid dynasty, despite being a great and powerful Iranian dynasty had become extremely corrupt and very unstable towards the end. Four centuries of theocratic oppression of different religious groups, suppression of the peasants and lack of tolerance had caught up with the dynasty. The decay and abandonment and growth are part of the circle of evolution and also the birth of enlightenment and blossoms of the truth. The rule of nature dictates to us that anything that does not change with time stagnates and degenerates.

While the Sassanid dynasty was in a chaotic and frenzied stage, across the desert a new religion was forming and foaming with fever and zealousness. Being deprived most of their lives from earthly pleasures and splendor and for centuries looking toward the Persians and the Romans with a certain awe, envy and fear, the Arabs were uniting under the new flag of Islam and marching toward the Persian lands and later the Roman lands.

King Yazdgird III, with the help of the Commander of Persian forces Rostam Farokhzad, became the last King of the Sassanids. It fell to him to pay for the sins of his forefathers. Before the war broke out with the Arabs, his vanity and overconfidence, as shown by Iranian rulers and nobles time and again, brought disaster to the nation. He was an inexperienced and arrogant ruler.

Rostam Farokhzad, a very courageous and brilliant Persian commander, foresaw the consequences. Yazdgird, sitting on the throne of the Aryan Empires, thought that the Iranian Army, like the previous Armies was invincible. Farokhzad knew that the time had changed. These were not the same Arabs and his military was not the same military.

Rostam Farokhzad had realized that these newly motivated Muslims were fearless as the today's suicide bombers in our era seem to be fearless and do not value human life. He knew that his soldiers were thinking about how to survive a war, yet, the Arab Army, similar to today's Islamic overzealous militants, were embracing death. The Arabs did not fear death because of the promise of a better life after death by “Allah”. He knew he couldn't possibly win this war and the best option was a diplomatic one.

Nonetheless, the war began and the Arab army under its ruthless commander, Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas approached. The Persian Army was defeated in the decisive “Battle of Qadisiyah.” Rostam Farokhzad, the courageous Iranian general was murdered and Yazdgird’s last attempt to gather forces to counter attack fell short. He wandered around the country for many years and it is told that he was slain in one of the villages in northern Iran.

Just how decisive was the “Battle of Qadisiyah.”? Even though the “Battle of Nahavand” was the last war of the Arabs with the Persians in which Yazdgird’s Army was completely defeated, the “Battle of Qadisiyah” had already sealed the fate of the Sassanids Empire just as the “Battle of Yarmuk” had sealed the fate of the Byzantine Empire in the West and was the start of a new chapter of the Islamic world and Islamic Iran.

This was an unusual defeat for the Persians. The Arabs were not satisfied with the spoils of the war. They wanted an Islamic Persia. They had come to convert the Persians by hook or by crook. "La ilah ilallah, Mohammed ur Rasulallah" (There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his Prophet). Those who resisted uttering those words were faced with death or burdened with heavy taxes and other unjust punishments.

It is the belief in the same “Allah” that brought upon the Iranian people the greatest catastrophe of the Islamic revolution. This is also the same belief that brought the twin towers down in the United States of America. This belief in this “Allah” will not stop until the entire world bows to its will.

History had taught the Arabs to plunder anybody anywhere. They burned one of the greatest libraries that ever existed at that period. With that, they destroyed not only the collections of previous Persian cultures, but other collections as well. It made no difference whose belongings they were. And now, with their newly found ideology, it made all their crimes more justifiable. The same can be said about today's Islamic rulers.

Fearing prosecution and death by extremely ruthless and merciless Arabs, great numbers of Iranians left Iran for safe haven in India. In a similar fashion, thousand of Iranians left Iran for safety place in the West after the Islamic Revolution of 1979. The Parsis moved to a different world to save their religion, race, culture, language, identity and tradition from extinction. Today Iranian Parsis are one of most successful strata in India. The Iranians took refuge in the West to be immune from the wrath of a mad man and the rejuvenated Islamists in Iran. Today, Iranian communities in the West are one of the most successful groups of people in their respective countries.

Historically, when a traditional religion encountered a society with a world or universal religion, the followers of the traditional religion converted, either by choice or by force. At any rate, the remaining Persians either accepted it or were forced to become Muslims and retain Islam as their state religion even after they gained their independence and developed the Persian language.

The struggle for liberation from the Arab fanatics never stopped Iranians. There were numerous Iranian uprisings against the Islamic Caliphs. Abu-Moslem Khorasani’s revolution almost freed Iran from the Arabs. It created a strong drive throughout Iran and revived the Persian sense of pride and dignity.

All these liberation movements, from Abu Moslem Khorasani in Khorasan, to Sinbad from Nayshabor, who followed the path of Abu Moslem Khorasani to Babak Khoramdin from Azerpaigan, who fought against the Arab army very fiercely, until he was betrayed by another Iranian, Afshin and was decapitated by the Arab Caliph, to Maziar, who led freedom fighters in the North against the Arab Army and envisioned of reviving the Iranian tradition; to Mardaviz-e-Zeyari, from Daylaman revolutionary leader and a Persian renaissance, to the Great Yaghoob-e Leis-e Saffari and Astadhsis, carried out five basic virtues: wisdom, bravery, courage, justice and a never ending struggle for an independent Iran. The spirits of these Persian heroes will live on and so does the Iranian struggle. This is something you must pursue.

With the first invasion of Arab-Islamic values, history has shown that the Arabs had not come to Persia merely for its vast spoils, but rather, they wanted an Islamic Arab Persia. They succeeded in making Iranians Islamic by the sword, but they miscalculated and gravely failed to inject the Arabic way of life into a very sophisticated and highly elevated Persian culture and tradition. They never accomplished their goal of taking away the Iranian identity as they did with Egypt, Libya, Morocco and other ancient African countries.

As we have witnessed again 1400 years later, the third invasion of Arab- Islamic values of 1979, lead by its extremely brutal satanic Islamic revolutionary man, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, also has gravely failed to convert a highly complicated and sophisticated Persian culture, tradition and identity, into an Islamic way of life. History has shown time and again that the crown of Islamic Arab values simply does not fit the Persians. It never has and it never will.

There exists much duplicity within the Iranian culture. Originally, Iranians accepted Islam to save their lives, but deep inside the heart of every single Iranian alive to this date, the burning sensation and resentment of the Arab-Islamic invasion of their culture is everlastingly enflaming. They confess of being Muslims; yet, the overwhelming numbers Iranians have never read the Quran or understand its language. The events in history have toughened Iranians gravely. They have become great pretenders.

During the next two centuries, a silence rolled over the once dynamic land. The heroic efforts by the Persian national heroes never allowed the Arab occupiers to live at peace. The Arabs keep fighting the rebellions constantly and at the same time emptying out the wealth of Persia. Iran was under the rule of the Caliphs, from Medina and later from Baghdad. These Caliphs were determined to obliterate all vestiges of Zoroastrianism and the great Sassanid dynasty.

Anywhere the Arabs would find a Zoroastrian temple, they would burn it down. Any Persian books were obliterated and those who wrote or spoke in Persian were faced with death. Their mission was very similar to the third invasion of Arab-Islamic values of 1979. Each invasion diverted from its original goals. Each went after Persian culture and identity and each gravely have failed.

The historical division of Islam went underway under Shah Ismail. He declared Ithna Ashari Shiitism as the official and compulsory religion of his new Qizilbash State in 1501 A.D. This period has been noted by some as the second invasion of Arab-Islamic values on Persian values and religion. It is interesting to note that the Prophet of Islam had never put his foot on Iranian soil, but his son-in-law Ali ibn Abi Talib had fought in the wars of succession within the boundaries of the country.

Caliphs had passed into the hands of the close associates of the Prophet starting in line with Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, 'Umar ibn al-Khattab, 'Uthman ibn and Ali ibn Abi Talib, Muhammad's son-in-law. It should be noted that Ali never claimed to be an Imam or an innocent one. He was simply an Arab Caliph.

After the death of the Prophet, the Arab world followed by an elective process to nominate the next in line successor which started with Abu Bakr. This group is known as ahl alsunnah wa-l-jama'ah, "the people of custom and community," or Sunnis. The imamate or "leadership" - in non-elective manner would become what we know today as Shiitism. Shiites say that succession must remain within the family of the Prophet, a blood-line - with Ali the first valid caliph. It should also be noted that this division occurred after the assassination of Imam Ali in Kufa by Ibn Muljim.

After the assassination of Imam Ali, his older son Imam Hassan became rightful Shiite leader. Not long into his Imamate, Imam Hassan also became victim to Bani Umayyad family. Now here is the defining moment for the entire Shiitism division and especially leading to the Iranian version. After Imam Hussein inherited the Imamate, in a decisive battle with Yazid who was the son of Mu’awiya sealed the everlasting fairly tales of Shiitism. It has been said Imam Hussein who was out numbered was beheaded by the Yazid’s Army in an unfair battle. Imam Hussein, like his father becomes martyr, hence, the start of a new era of Shiitism.

Up to this day, Iranians mourn for the first Imam and the third Imam, Ali ebn-e abi taaleb, and Hussein-ebn-e Ali, (Majaales-e Rozehkhaani va Azaa daari), After Iranians were forced to become Shiite by Shah Ismail, this practice became extremely prevalent and popular in the mosques and “Takaayaa, Huseinieh haa” and in many people homes. Especially in the month of Safar and Ramadan, they were devoted to the ceremonies of (Sineh zani) beating oneself on the chest, (Zanjir zani), beating oneself with metal chain, (Sang zani), beating oneself with rocks, and (Ghameh zani), wounding oneself with poniard. “Ghameh zani or Shah Husseini,” was conducted in what is called on the days of Aashoora and Taasooaa, on the 9th and 10th of Moharam.

Everyone is wearing grave-cloths, wounding themselves with a poniard (Ghameh) until their heads or their foreheads are cut open, filling their entire head and face with blood. This was a barbaric practice which was abolished during the later reign of the late Mohammed Reza Shah Pahlavi. It is said this practice has also been banished recently in the Islamic Republic as well. While abusing their bodies, they were shouting “Yaa Hussein, Yaa Abdullah” and repeating it over and over again and another group reciting mourning. Each year many people died as a result of self-inflicted wounds to the head.

Even though 2500 years has passed since Cyrus the Great declared the first Charters of the human rights, yet, at the down of the new millennium, Iranians are still struggling for their simple and basic human rights. What went wrong?

I hope by now you have a clear idea what went wrong and why after two millenniums of supremacy by the Persian Empires over the vast land of the known world, Iranians are at the bottom of the civilized world today. The newly selected president of the Islamic Republic recently spoke at the United Nations, confirming my anxieties of Iran's future are justified.

Our nation for centuries has struggled valiantly to survive. The history of our nation is all about struggle. Our nation, once again is struggling for its independence from the most vicious and barbaric system known to the history of man. It is one of the most tyrannical and oppressive regimes in the modern time. What makes this era the most sensitive era of the Persian history, is the fact that the Islamic Republic is playing games with people's life, by creating the most devastating bombs, ( the nuclear bomb) and opening the doors from outside with a full fledge war on Iran.

The current rulers in Iran are simply vicious, malicious, and dangerous. They are doing everything in their power to make sure there won't be a new generation, and if there is going to be an Iran, they want to make sure that you become one of them. That means an Islamic terrorist. Being part of party of the Islamic terrorism is prerequisite part of the selection process of being accepted in the Islamic government.

History is filled with ironies. What the Arabs had come to Persia to eradicate, it made Ferdowsi to recreate. Hakim Abol-Ghasem Ferdowsi Toosi is one of the greatest heroes of Iran and father of the “Book of Kings,” the Tales of Ancient Persia. He is known in Iran as the father of the Persian language. For more than thirty years, Ferdowsi spent his valuable life to revive, not only the Persian language, but a nation.

Namiram keh az in pass man zendeh’am,
Keh tokhm-e sokhan raa paraa-kardeham
(I am deathless, I am eternal Lord,
For I have spread the seed of the Word)

Ferdowsi is dead. But, his spirit lives in the hearts and minds of all freedom-loving Iranians.

The volatile situation in Iran now calls for all of you urgently learn from the mistakes of past and educate the young people about the plague of Islam on the Persian society and perhaps other societies.

Let us regain our dignity of a human being
And to seek out the truth,
Let us enjoy our Persian pride
And to fulfill our destiny.
Let us pursue the true unity and peace on earth
And regain our religious freedom.

Let us do it
None will remain hidden from the concealed!
Let me join my cold eyes,
With the cold mirrors of the earth!
Let us be together!
Let the tenderness of our hands,
Overflow with Persian pride and joy,
Let us merge our eyes,
In each other's eyes
Let us do it


Nothing will be hidden from the concealed!
Nothing will grow from absurd values!
Let us eradicate madly,
The roots of prejudice and ignorant beliefs!
And stir the bowl of Love,

Let me say this:
Nothing stays constant,
Nothing will last till eternity,
And for wisdom to soar,
Our eyes,
Tremble for one small minute!
Let us divide the mirrors equally
I can say this:
This is the last event in the transformation of life;
This is the last human promise!
Let me say this:
Blandishment is not my style,
Let me say this:
I conquered the garden,
Without your knowledge!
Let me share it with you!
Let us make a flower happy,
In our exclusive hands!

Let us be a bird,
With two open shinning eyes,
Looking at the world!
Let us have faith in purity!
Let us flee away from impurity!
Let me fill the cradle of my poetry,
With your image!
Let us surrender to each other,
And understand each other's pains and sufferings
Let us do it!
Let us make another Iran!
Let us promise a better future,
And a loftier!
Let us move away from lowly,
And approach exodus!
Let us turn to light!
And remove the doors from all houses,
And awaken a nation!
Let us do it!
