61:11 Believe in Allah and His messenger and fight valiantly for Allah’s cause [jihad] with both your wealth and your lives. It would be better for you, if you only knew it!
In the first of my three-part discussion, I took you through the origins of Islam and the Prophet Mohammad. To continue this conversation, I will thoroughly explain what jihad is, why it matters, and the current threats jihad and Islamists pose to the United States.
Last week’s article emphasized Mohammad’s role within Islam. It is vital to note that believers of this ideology insist that Mohammad was the perfect example of a man we ought to follow. I detailed the life and beliefs of Mohammad as depicted in the ‘the holy trilogy,’ namely the Koran, Hadith, and the Sira. This foundation is of particular importance in understanding jihad; you can be easily deceived without it.
Jihad expresses two different things. It can mean “personal struggle” or “holy war.” You may wonder how that can be.
As Doctor Bill Warner explains in his book The Hadith: The Sunna of Mohammad, “Islam talks about two kinds– the lesser jihad and the greater jihad. The greater jihad is spiritual effort or internal struggle to stop smoking, for example, or control one’s greed. However, the term “lesser jihad” never occurs in any authoritative hadith. There are about 2% of the hadiths in Bukhari that hold up other things as equal to jihad. The other 98% of jihad hadiths refer to armed violence. It was violence that gave Islam its success, and that is why nearly every hadith calls the jihad the best action a Muslim can perform.”
A quintessential observation of Muslims who partake in taqiyya (a lie for the good of Islam) is that they will tell you that Islam is peaceful and nonviolent – when in fact, it promotes world domination through violence to Islamize the world. When a Muslim speaks of “justice for all,” he means justice under shariah law.
Shariah law must be understood for what it is and why it matters. Shariah law comes from the ‘holy trilogy.’ A law cannot be made unless it references one of these books. If someone follows shariah law, they follow these books and nothing else.
9:29 Make war on those who have received the Scriptures [Jews and Christians] but do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day. They do not forbid what Allah and His messenger have forbidden. The Christians and Jews do not follow the religion of truth until they submit and pay the poll tax [jizya], and they are humiliated.
2:216 You are commanded to fight although you dislike it. You may hate something that is good for you and love something that is bad for you. Allah knows, and you do not.
4:89: They would have you become Kafirs like them, so you will all be the same. Therefore, do not take any of them as friends until they have abandoned their homes to fight for Allah’s cause [jihad]. But if they turn back, find them and kill them wherever they are.
In one of the most illuminating books written on this subject, Shariah: A Threat to America, Report of B Team II, the authors speak of a renowned historical scholar and his thoughts on Islam and the obligation of jihad:
“Ibn Khaldun, an acclaimed historian,…who lived from 1332-1406…noted that ‘In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and [the obligation to] convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.’ Ibn Khaldun asserts that this is because Islam is ‘under obligation to gain power over other nations.’”
Most Americans have seen violent jihad take place by way of ramped up terrorist attacks in the past decade. Examples stretch from the Fort Hood massacre and the Pulse Orlando shooting to the “lone wolf” attack by the “mentally ill” at a grocery store or the U.S. capitol. No episode is singular, and no attack is random. None of the attackers were “mentally ill.” Each was a follower of Islamic ideology. These are distractions given to you by the media in order to cover for Islam. Within our borders, many citizens or refugees are being trained at local mosques, schools, and Islamic programs to become jihadists and attack the enemy that is our Western values system. In the third part of my series, I will dive deeper into this for you and explain what our national and local authorities are or aren’t doing to curb the radicalization of American civilians.
‘Civilization jihad’ is a form of non-violent jihad, which has been in the making for over six decades. Over sixty years ago, the Muslim Brotherhood, a known terrorist organization whose goal is to achieve the Islamization of the world, was forced to leave Egypt. Members fled to different countries. Many Muslim Brotherhood members immigrated to the United States. Upon arrival, the Brotherhood went straight to work and formed its first organization, The Muslim Student Association at the University of Illinois in Urbana. From there, they branched out to infiltrate many crucial aspects of our society.
The Muslim Brotherhood is not just any terrorist organization; it’s one of the biggest. Its creed is:
“Allah is our objective.
The Prophet is our leader.
Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
Under its umbrella are al-Qaeda, Hamas, CAIR, Student Justice for Palestine, Muslim Student Association, Islamic Society of North America, just to name a few. They all follow the same creed and same mission. Frank Gaffney lists the stages of planned infiltration in one of his classes on his Secure Freedom youtube channel:
- Discreet and secret establishment of leadership.
- Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities.
- Escalation phase, prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing the media.
- Open public confrontation with government through exercising political pressure approach.
- Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation under which all parties and Islamic groups are united.
So far, it is on stage three of the Muslim Brotherhood organizations’ plan. “Shariah: The Threat to America” goes deeper into the Muslim Brotherhoods’ actual objectives. The organization wants to implement Shariah law and Islamize the United States by:
- Expanding the Muslim presence by birth rate, immigration, and refusal to assimilate;
- Occupying and expanding domination of physical spaces;
- Ensuring the “Muslim Community knows and follows the MB doctrine;
- Controlling the language, we use in describing the enemy;
- Ensuring we do not study their doctrine (shariah);
- Co-opting key leadership;
- Forcing compliance with shariah at the local levels;
- Fighting all counterterrorism efforts;
- Subverting religious organizations;
- Employing lawfare- the offensive use of lawsuits and threats of lawsuits;
- Claiming victimization/ demanding accommodations;
- Condemning “slander” against Islam;
- Subverting the U.S. Education system, in particular, infiltrating and dominating U.S. Middle East and religious studies programs;
- Demanding the right to practice shariah in segregated Muslim enclaves;
- Demanding recognition of shariah in non-Muslim spheres;
- Confronting and denouncing Western society, laws, and traditions; and
- Demanding that shariah replace Western law.
By benefiting from our freedom and our Constitution, specifically the first amendment, it has made a lot of headway through “free speech” and “freedom of religion.” During the Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and especially the Barack Hussein Obama administrations, several directors of Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations have pushed an agenda of “hate speech” “not being free speech.” Anyone who points out the inconsistencies within the Quran, violence within Islamic nations, or the followers of Allah is called an “Islamophobe” and accused of spreading “hateful speech,” leading to public ostracization. Its tactic is mirrored in what we today call cancel culture.
Within our halls of Congress, jihadists roam freely. Underneath the capital, they hold prayer services for those who practice Islam, which means they follow shariah law. Shariah law, to Islamists, trumps the United States constitution. They have made a home within one of our most prestigious government buildings throughout America.
Infiltrating the government from the federal level down to the local level is no simple task. Many Muslim Brotherhood affiliates have tricked our elected officials into hiring them or lending their “helping” hand with Muslim relations. Hillary Clinton hired Huma Abedin as one of her senior advisors. Abedin’s entire family works with known pro-Islamization organizations, her father; was a councilor for the Muslim World League, her mother; taught at Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, and her brother; is associated with the Ikhwan-friendly Oxford Center for Islamic Studies in England. CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation trial, has made massive progress by placing their Muslim Brotherhood friends in congress, cabinet positions, and council to multiple administrations on Muslim affairs.
Islamists have taken over our educational system from elementary school to post-graduate school; they decide what we do or do not learn about them. The rise in anti-America rhetoric and the anti-Jew sentiment is no coincidence. The books students read, the songs they teach, and their prayers are all against American values and non-Muslims in general. California has just approved a mandatory ethnic studies course of the Middle East from the Islamist perspective; it doesn’t mention Jews.
They lead our social justice movements pretending to be allies, all the while believing no one can have justice until shariah is the law of the land. If shariah were to be implemented, then there is no justice. The non-Muslim must convert or be killed. The “people of the book” will either pay a tax and become dhimmis (third class citizens), convert, or die. There is no other way when one follows Islam and abides by shariah.
Linda Sarsour is a prime example; she portrays herself as a fighter for the Palestinian Muslim cause. In reality, and admittedly, she follows shariah law and believes Allah is the one and only God. She is radical. Under shariah, you are told to befriend the infidel to either bring them closer to Islam or to use them to advance Islamic causes further. Her intentions aren’t pure; she is a deceiver and a liar; one should not put their faith or trust in Linda Sarsour.
This ideological movement has friends within communist countries; their alliance over a mutual hatred of Western values has helped them penetrate current public political thought. Communism, Islamism, and the Black Lives Matter movements are paving the way of overthrowing our democratic republic as we know it. Our sitting President, Joseph Biden, shows weakness to our enemies in China, Iran, and Russia. The mission of the jihadist is pushing its way towards completion.
Next week, and in my last article in this series, I will describe how Islam has infiltrated our government, the radicalization of our citizens, the violence we are heading towards, and what, if anything, our domestic terror agencies are doing about it.
I will also be sharing my exclusive interview with John Guandolo, a former FBI agent who specializes in counterterrorism and founded understandingthethreat.com. John offered the ONLY class on Islamic counterterrorism to the FBI after 9/11. He now offers his training course to local and state government agencies and journalists or those interested in investigating jihad in America.
Until then, I challenge you to start looking for clues of “civilized jihad” or “stealth jihad” around you and fighting back with American values, American laws, and speaking up for our Democratic Republic.
