In Allah’s Name

Islamic terrorists shout “Allahu Akbar” as they slaughter and kill innocents, and apologists for these jihadists claim it has nothing to do with Islam.

Allah's Name

“Allahu Akbar,” translated “God is the greatest,” is better rendered “Allah is the greatest.” It is, of course, Allah to whom the phrase refers.

Jihadists crying out, “Allahu Akbar,” are proclaiming the supremacy of Allah, not of some generic or non-Islamic god. Allah, and Allah alone, is the recipient of their fealty and worship.

But apologists for jihadists are pleased to translate “Allahu” as God and not Allah. Why? It serves at least two purposes. First, it obscures the identification of the worshiped (Allah) and the worshipers (Muslims). This enables apologists and sympathizers to perpetuate their myth of Islam as a religion of peace.

Second, it suggests a moral equivalence between Islam and other religions, each with its own god or gods. Therefore, apologists for Islam can immediately pivot to attacking non-Muslims and besmirching other religions, principally Christianity.

That fact that religion-based terrorism is almost exclusively committed by Muslims in the name of Allah can, therefore, be disguised and denied. By translating “Allahu” as God and not Allah, all religions can be denied. This is particularly appealing to secularists and atheists.

Apologists for jihad refuse to acknowledge even the existence of Islamic terrorism and they contend that jihad is peaceful, contrary to history (more than a millennia), reality (global violent jihad is daily in the news), and the self-identity of the jihadists themselves (who proudly proclaim to be doing Allah’s will).

Violent jihad has always been a part of Islam, prescribed by its holy texts. Its adherents, those who accept the original interpretation of those texts, truly believe they are doing Allah’s (not God’s) will.

When terrorists behead, blow-up, and butcher innocents, we should take them at their word as they give credit to Allah. Words mean things. Twisting words to mean something else does not change reality.

Author Ann Coulter recently addressed the Orwellian nature of this redefinition and misrepresentation of words. In a Facebook posting, she noted:

Jihad-deniers treat all of those expressions as equally benign. One is not. One can be a harbinger of death and destruction. (Usual caveat: Not all Muslims are terrorists and many Muslims oppose jihadism.)

“Allahu Akbar” has an historical significance in being used during various periods of Islamic conquest. It has a contemporary significance in being used, daily, by jihadists as they commit acts of terrorism. That singular expression tells the story. Jihadists commit these acts because of their Islamic faith and their devotion to the commands of Allah.

What are those commands? Here are a few (graphic from Internet):

Denying the obvious only enables these cruel zealots to continue their war on civilization in pursuit of their version of Paradise, a worldwide caliphate.

All those who love liberty and deplore the barbarism of these jihadists should demand the truth from our government, our media, and all those who are in a position of influence and power.

To defeat the enemy, we must defeat their ideology. To defeat their ideology, we must recognize it, refute it, and destroy it. Denying their intentions and motivations enables their actions to continue undeterred.

Indeed, our silence – the jettisoning of reality down the memory hole – and our refusal to fight for victory emboldens our enemies. They are eager to destroy us even as the Left pretends that they are our friends.

Update: Andrew McCarthy explains how the Orlando massacre (and other Islamist attacks) could have been prevented. Here’s but one paragraph:

“It should have been possible to see Omar Mateen coming. He was a first-generation American citizen, born in this country to immigrant parents from Afghanistan and raised in a troubled household – one in which the father is a visible and ardent supporter of the Taliban, the fundamentalist jihadist group that ruled Afghanistan in the 1990s, harbored al-Qaeda as it plotted and executed the 9/11 attacks, and to this day wages war against American troops as it fights to retake the country.”

Root of Evil: Let’s Put ISIS on Welfare

With an astonishing refutation of reality, the White House recently announced its latest “strategy” to defeat terrorism: welfare.

(Government-created jobs are often a form of welfare.)

ISISEvil

Last night, State Department spokesman Marie Harf explained the roots cause of terrorism: unemployment. Harf asserts:

“We cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs…We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people…”

Does this White House truly believe that we can bribe terrorists to stop terrorizing? How did that succeed domestically, with the establishment of the welfare state under Johnson’s War on Poverty to create a Great Society? The War on Poverty was a failure and the poster children of the Great Society are Ferguson and Detroit.

The Obama White House has merged a Roussean view of man as noble and innocent until corrupted by society with a Socialist view of economic determinism, wherein a person’s economic status determines his character. (One cannot discount this administration’s Islamophilia.)

The root cause of terrorism is not, and never has been, unemployment. The root cause of terrorism is evil, the evil that resides in man’s heart. And the specific manifestation of that evil which compels these evil men to kill, behead, terrorize, and destroy is a desire to fulfill the wishes of Allah and pursue Islamic jihad with the end goal of creating a global, infidel-free, Muslim caliphate.

Money, jobs, and any form of appeasement will not stay the hands of these evil-doers. Evil-doers! Appeasing Putin, the Castro brothers, Iran and other tyrannical states, will not end the tyranny. Evil exists. Evil in the hearts of these evil people.

Six years of appeasement has erupted the world in flames!

The Obama administration – and the Obama administration alone – is pathologically incapable of identifying the enemy and the origins of their behavior. The enemy is Islamic jihadists whose goal is to subjugate or annihilate all those who refuse to accept Allah as God. The origins of their behavior lie in the Koran and teachings of Mohammed.

But the suicidal nonsense from the White House continues even as the jihadists are hell-bent on enflaming the globe. Harf asserted: “We cannot kill our way out of this war.”

How ludicrous! We killed our way out of World Wars I and II. Wars end after the enemy has been defeated or destroyed.

Representing an administration clearly in denial, National Security Advisor Susan Rice recently claimed, “Still, while the dangers we face may be more numerous and varied, they are not of the existential nature of what we confronted during World War II or during the Cold War. We cannot afford to be buffeted by alarmism and a nearly instantaneous new cycle.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) disagreed with that assessment, declaring, “They [ISIS] are a dominant threat to peace in the world today. I really believe this. There’s never been a time when there are more threats to the United States than there is now. So as I said once before, we’re either going to fight them there or fight them here.”

America needs to engage and defeat the enemy in this world war, just as she did in the first two world wars. (Three world wars if you count the Cold War.)

Islamic jihadists pose an existential threat to America and the whole of Western Civilization.

Terror Strikes America – Again!

Terrorism strikes the heartland!

Massacre in Ft. Hood, bombing at the Boston Marathon, and a beheading in Oklahoma!

As of this writing, authorities are calling the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma a case of “workplace violence.” Nonsense!

TerrorUSA

A Muslim man, shouting in Arabic as he beheads a former co-worker is not “workplace violence.” Afterwards, during a press conference, dozens of Muslims praised Allah for the attack. That was the cultural and religious milieu in which the terrorist lived.

But the local authorities deny all of the evidence pointing to terrorism by claiming there is no evidence pointing to terrorism.

Islamic Jihad in Oklahoma!

As veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler reports, “Obama’s ISIS War Comes to America.” Koffler clearly expresses the truth in bullet-point fashion:

  • SIS has been beheading Americans.
  • ISIS is targeting America and has called in the meantime for lone wolf style attacks in the West.
  • The man who the committed the brutal murder just outside Oklahoma City, Alton Nolen, had recently converted to Islam and was trying to convert others. He had the fervor of newly found faith.
  • He beheaded his victim.
  • When was the last time you ever heard of anyone in America beheading their victims?

As reported elsewhere, Muslims shouted “Praise Allah” during a press conference reporting on the gruesome beheading. His peers have obviously been radicalized as well.

Islamic terrorism expert Robert Spencer’s headline points to the source of their radicalization. “Oklahoma beheader’s mosque once led by imam of Boston jihadis’ mosque.”

The Independent Journal Review offered “33 Things We Learned About the Oklahoma Suspect: What His Hand Signal Means Will Chill You.” It offers extensive analysis of the jihadi’s Facebook pages, postings, and photographs.

Islamic jihad invaded Oklahoma, and authorities deny it.

Denying the Obvious Yet Again

Why do the authorities deny the obvious?

Political correctness? Election-year politics? Cowardice?

The Left prefers to redefine “terrorism” to mean patriotism. (See “Terrorism Redefined.”)

The Left prefers to ignore Islamic terrorists and label conservatives as terrorists. (See “’Right-Wing Terrorists’ or Muslim Jihadists.”)

The Left caters to Islam while eschewing other religions. (See “Obama’s Muslim Roots and Sympathies.”)

Terrorism by Any Other Name

We must accurately identify the problem if we are going to find a solution. The problem is radical Islam, not America. But many on the Left prefer to blame America. (See “Obama’s America – Fundamentally Flawed.”)

The problem is Islamic jihadis who want to destroy everyone and everything that does not fit into their vision of a worldwide caliphatethat is the problem.

But many on the Left insist this could be “workplace violence.” Sorry, but proper profiling requires calling it what it is – Islamic terrorism. This is profiling behavior.

Terrorism by any other name is still terrorism.

A radicalized Muslim male + shouting praises to Allah in Arabic + beheading + praised by his Muslim peers = terrorism.

Enabling Terror

Having denied throughout his political career the existence of Islamic terrorism – and even now denying that we are at war with it – President Obama began his administration in outreach to Muslims (even tasking NASA with that as its primary mission) and launched a never-ending American apology tour to the Middle East and the rest of the world.

(Obama even compared the Ferguson police with ISIS!)

Obama has continually targeted Muslims for recruitment into his administration (Christians need not apply), has Muslim radicals as his advisors, and has politicized Homeland Security and the military to purge them of “Islamophobia” – a fear of Islam that has suddenly become all too real to most Americans.

Obama continues to believe we can achieve peaceful co-existence with an enemy who wants to destroy us. (See “Let’s Talk ISIS Into Peace.”)

Obama has done nothing to stop the radicalization of Americans and immigrants (legal and illegal) and everything to enable it.

Thank you, Mr. President, for making America weaker and less safe than it has been in decades. Yet you claim that America has never been safer! (See “Obama: America is Stronger Than Ever.”)

Terror strikes the heartland, and we owe it all to you, Barack.

Jimmy Carter’s “Principles of Allah”

Jimmy Carter, a third-generation Southern Baptist who has renounced his membership in that denomination, recently spoke at the annual convention for the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) calling upon all Americans to “use the principles of Allah to bring peace and justice to all.”

Allah

I guess I missed that part in the Bible where Jesus said we are to look to other gods for counsel. (Judeo-Christian principles and culture have served America well for over two centuries, thank you.)

Numerous blogs have provided examples of “principles of Allah” which are decidedly non-Christian, anti-American, and anti-civilization.

Carter has denounced Israel for a decade and he seeks acceptance of HAMAS as a legitimate organization. Carter condemns Christianity for waging a war on women, yet has little criticism of Islam.

Perhaps Jimmy should put on a sweater and watch the news.

1891400_918645284816884_2840731058046146916_o

HAMAS is a terrorist organization in league with ISIS, which is a terrorist nation seeking to rule the world by force and annihilate all opposition. They worship Allah and look to the Koran for guidance.

Peace and justice will forever elude the world as long as Western leaders remain spellbound by their own faulty visions of the world.

Perhaps Jimmy also forgot those Sunday school lessons he gave as a Southern Baptist having to do with Jesus – not Allah – being the Prince of Peace.
