The Obama – Clinton social justice warriors in charge of our domestic security and the law enforcement officials they have trained have been at great pains to say they are “investigating” if there is a connection between the three terrorist attacks that were carried out in our country last weekend.
They have also gone to great pains to present these attacks as isolated incidents that are, at least as of now, not connected to any foreign terrorist organization or political movement.
The later point especially strains the credulity of country class Americans who know from the few news reports unstained by political correctness that both terrorists, Ahmad Khan Rahami and Dahir Ahmed Adan, are Muslims and had connections to terrorist hotspots, and that Adan was called “a soldier of the Islamic State” and asked his victims if they were Muslims.
So to the Obama – Clinton law enforcement social justice warriors and the law enforcement officials they have rendered blind to the threat they are facing we will explain the connection between the attacks.
The connection is Islam and the teachings of the Qur’an or as it also spelled, the Koran.
The most dangerous lie that Obama, Clinton and their progressive fellow travelers are trying to sell to the American people is that “They [the leaders of ISIS, al Qaeda, etc.] are not religious leaders -- they’re terrorists. And we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.”
Contrary to what Obama and Clinton say, the most violent terrorists in today’s world are Islamic.
Moreover, as Breitbart’s John Sexton documented, while the truly violent active jihadists make up a tiny percentage of Muslim’s worldwide; a significant percentage of Muslims around the world, numbering well over 100 million, believe practices like mutilation, stoning and the death penalty are appropriate for non-violent offenses.
Pew did do a worldwide poll of Muslims which included their attitudes toward Sharia law. What the poll found was that 74 percent of Egyptian Muslims favored making Sharia the law of the land and, among those, 86 percent believed the death penalty was appropriate in cases of apostasy – leaving Islam. If you multiply it out calculated Sexton, you get 64.5 percent of Egyptians who believe in killing anyone who disavows Islam.
Another question Pew asked was about support for stoning women caught in adultery. The response to that question was similar or higher in some cases to the apostasy question notes Sexton. In Indonesia (the most populous Muslim nation) support was 48 percent of the 72 percent who support Sharia. That works out to 34.5 percent of the population as a whole or about 70 million Muslims.
Sexton also noted that Muslims who support Sharia were asked if they also support the corporal punishment Sharia entails, i.e. whipping and amputating the hands of thieves. In Egypt support was at 70 percent, in Bangladesh at 50 percent and in Indonesia at 45 percent.
Obama, in another lie has also said, “Al Qaeda and ISIL do draw, selectively, from the Islamic texts. They do depend upon the misperception around the world that they speak in some fashion for people of the Muslim faith, that Islam is somehow inherently violent, that there is some sort of clash of civilizations.”
Our take on that remark is that it was an attempt to knockdown the growing American recognition that Islam is at odds with our understanding of Western Enlightenment values, such as constitutional liberty and the equality of women.
The Qur’an contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.
Qur’an (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone."
Qur’an (2:216) - "Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not."
Qur’an (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore, strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Likewise, with regard to women the Qur’an in Sura 4:24 says slave women are sexual property for their male owners: “And forbidden to you are wedded wives of other people except those who have fallen in your hands [as prisoners of war].” (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 319). See also Suras 4:3; 23:5—6; 33:50; 70:22—30, all of which permit male slave owners to have sex with their female slaves. Suras 23:5—6 and 70:22—230 also allow men to have sex with their slaves
The lie in the Obama-Clinton narrative about the global jihad movement’s alleged “selective” use of religious texts to justify its actions is that sexual slavery, terrorism and everything that goes with them are not inventions of ISIS, or “violent extremists,” they are right there in the Qur’an – and in graphic terms that cannot be misunderstood or taken out of context.
As our friend Clare Lopez, Vice President for Research and Analysis Center for Security Policy and a former operations officer for the CIA, has observed on numerous occasions, we are not fighting a war on “terrorism,” we are fighting to live free of the oppression of Sharia and the ideas expressed in the Qur’an.
This war is not just with the radical Islamists of ISIS and Al Qaeda, but with concepts deeply embedded in Muslim culture and the Qur’an. Donald Trump understands this war, Hillary Clinton does not, or is perhaps even on the other side, as Obama clearly has been.
In this war of ideas Ahmad Khan Rahami and Dahir Ahmed Adan are the shock troops of an enemy that is already behind our lines.
If Hillary Clinton is elected and won’t be honest about how the Muslim worldview as expressed in the Qur’an differs from our own and won’t stand up and defend the ideas and values enshrined in our Constitution, such as freedom of thought and religion and the equality of women, then we are well on our way to losing this war.
