USA appeases Islam under President Obama

USA Appeases Islam under President Obama

US President Barack Obama

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan is set to begin and already President Obama of America is in “manipulation mode” in order to draw America closer to the so-called Muslim world. However, it is clear that Obama’s words are based on Islamic propaganda, however, like so often, coming from the words of a non-Muslim liberal.

Therefore, is it good to have a world leader who speaks on the behalf of another religion and at the same time, repackages it out of all proportion?

In the world of Obama he states that the rituals of Ramadan “remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.” Therefore, what “justice” and “tolerance” is Obama talking about?

After all, Mohammed himself did not believe in the dignity of all human beings, on the contrary, Jews and Pagans were killed and enslaved, and within a short time all faiths would be banned from the lands of Mecca and Medina. The multi-religious nature of Arabia would be shattered and destroyed by both Mohammed and the early Muslim leaders who would then eradicate Christianity from Arabia.

If Muslims want to follow Mohammed and to uphold traditions like the superiority of Muslims in Islamic Sharia codified law; then this is on their conscience. However, unlike Islamic Sharia law which deems non-Muslims to be inferior, or indeed subhuman if you do not belong to the people of the book; modern Western law believes in the equality of law for all citizens, irrespective of race, religion, or gender.

In recent weeks we have seen the usual Islamic tolerance of non-Muslims by radical Sunni Islamists. This applies to burning Christians alive in Pakistan, beheading Christian converts from Islam in Somalia, killing innocent Shia Muslims in Iraq, killing Buddhists in Southern Thailand, beheading Christian pastors in Nigeria, persecuting Coptic Christians in Egypt, and so forth.

Instead of the world confronting this menace, we have so many Western leaders in appeasement mode and even moderate Muslims are overwhelmingly silent on the reality of Islam and any nation which is ruled by Islamic Sharia law. Given this, what “tolerance” and “dignity” of all human beings is based on the Koran and the Hadiths. Also, when did Islamic Sharia law believe in the “dignity” of all human beings and eqaulity?

Of course Obama understands the reality of what Islamic Sharia law means and sometimes it is much better to say nothing, rather than trying to fool people by making grand statements based on myths.

After all, the testimony of Christians and Jews in Islamic Sharia law is half that of a Muslim. Therefore, it is clear that Christians and Jews are deemed to be inferior in Islamic Sharia law and for other faiths, like Buddhists or Hindus, then their testimony is even less or according to some radical Islamists, all Buddhists and Hindus should be killed and not even the traces of Buddhist or Hindu monuments must be allowed (this happened in Afghanistan).

Obama is not alone in supporting institutions which clash with his own thinking, after all Obama claims to support the equality of homosexuals, religious freedom, democracy, gender equality, and so forth. The former Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, embraced Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, this Muslim cleric, like many others, supports the execution of homosexuals and he justifies terrorism according to an article which was published in the New York Times.

However, in modern day Saudi Arabia homosexuality is punishable by imprisonment or death. The Sunni Islamic Taliban in Afghanistan also kill homosexuals and of course this is sanctioned in Islamic Sharia law and by Islamic clerics. Recently, it was also reported that Muslims are killing homosexuals in modern day Iraq and homosexuals reside in fear in many mainly Muslim parts of the world, for example Palestinian controlled areas, Iran, Somalia, and a host of other nations.

Meanwhile in 2010 in the modern era we have several faiths that face annihilation or the imposition of jizya tax in order to survive under their Islamic masters. Therefore, the Baha’is reside in fear in Iran because of massive persecution; the Shabaks, Christians, Yazidis, and Mandaeans face death and persecution on a daily basis in Iraq; Buddhists in Southern Thailand are being beheaded and killed; Sikhs have been forced to pay jizya in Pakistan and recently Christians were burnt alive in this nation; the minority Ahmadiyya Muslim community also suffers massive inequality and persecution in Pakistan and they are not allowed to visit Saudi Arabia; and Hindus also fear radical Sunni Islamists in both Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Like I stated in a past article about the Mandaeans in Iraq, it is worth repeating because the Islam of Obama is very different to the reality of Islam and what is happening in the modern world.

Therefore, in 2007 the BBC covered a story about the Mandaeans via the headline “Iraq’s Mandaeans face extinction” which was written by Angus Crawford. During the article Angus Crawford states that “The Mandaeans are pacifists, followers of Adam, Noah and John the Baptist.” He highlights that by 2007 more than 80% had already fled their homeland because of the fear of death and daily persecution.

The article also highlights the plight of a 9 year old boy called Selwan. However, for this 9 year old boy he witnessed the hatred of radical Islam because he was forced to jump into a burning bonfire. The consequences of this, yes, the persecution of such a young boy, is around 20% burns and this only happened to him because he is a Mandaean.

The same article also highlights the forced conversion to Islam of Luay who is too petrified to give his full name. For Luay, a Mandaean, he was forced to convert to Islam and “forcibly circumcised.” Also, like Angus Crawford mentions, because “he was forcibly converted. That means in the eyes of those same extremists, if he now declares himself Mandaean he is (an) apostate.” Therefore, if he re-converts back to the Mandaean faith he may be killed by radical Islamists.

Given this, just where does President Obama think that these people want to reside after fleeing persecution? Does Obama think that all these minorities want to flee to Sharia Islamic law nations, like Saudi Arabia or do they want to flee to the West? Of course he knows the answer and he fully knows that in modern day Saudi Arabia that all converts from Islam face the death penalty.

Also, Ahmadiyya Muslims are forbidden from entering Saudi Arabia and the minority Shia Muslim community suffers enormous persecution. Meanwhile Muslim females can not even drive a car in Saudi Arabia and when a young girl’s school was burning they were left to die because the fire brigade was too worried about mixing with the opposite sex.

Mohammed also married a child when he was an old man and the child was only 6 years old and like Sahih Bukhari (respected Islamic scholar) states “Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old.” Therefore, because of this many young girls are married to old men in modern day Saudi Arabia and other Islamic Sharia law based nations and one must add is this the “dignity” that Obama is talking about?

Also, Mohammed stated that (Koran 9:29) “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”

Mohammed also stated (Koran 5:38) “As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands. It is the reward of their own deeds, an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Mighty, Wise.” Therefore, radical Sunni Islamists in Somalia are enacting this because of the Koran and the same applies to killing apostates because this is also sanctioned in Islam.

Therefore, why is Obama making false statements and why is he ignoring reality? Remember, the same Obama who talks about the dignity of humanity visited the lands of Mecca and Medina. Of course, during his visit to Saudi Arabia he would not have seen one Christian church or Buddhist temple, and if he wanted to read his Christian Bible openly, then under Saudi law he would have faced prison.

The Saudi Arabia he visited is a land which continues to support the killing of apostates from Islam and which denies equality to any other faith, and even persecutes minority Muslim sects. The same Saudi Arabia supports the persecution of all religions and homosexuals; and Islamic clerics in this nation are open about their clear understanding of Islam.

Therefore, why does Obama close his eyes when it pleases him and why does he make false statements which can be ridiculed or openly contradicted at the drop of a hat? If the Dalai Lama, a Buddhist leader, wanted to visit and openly preach in Saudi Arabia he would be killed; therefore, where is the justice and equality in Islamic Sharia law and the Koran for non-Muslims?

Islamic Jihad in Russia

Islamic Jihad in Russia

THE MODERN TOKYO TIMES

 
Russian Foreign Minister
Sergei Lavrov

The Russian Federation is multi-ethnic and multi-religious but several areas of the Russian Federation are blighted by international terrorism, internal ethnic fault-lines, local terrorism, and regional political issues which are hindering real progress.

This most notably applies to the Caucasus region and areas like Chechnya, Dagestan, and Ingushetia which are overwhelmingly Muslim. However, other regions have become engulfed by the threat of terrorism and in North Ossetia, which is mainly Christian; you had the Beslan hostage crisis in 2004 when Chechen insurgents and others seized control of a school. This led to the deaths of 335 civilians, the majority of victims being young children who were used by radical Sunni Islamists without any compassion or care for the loss of their blood.

Attacks have also happened within the heartland of the Russian Federation and the latest terrorist attack is a reminder that terrorism is a threat in not only the Caucasus and surrounding region; but it can strike at any time throughout the Russian Federation.

Past terrorist attacks have happened in Kabardino-Balkaria in 2005 when Islamists attacked government buildings in Nalchik and this led to the deaths of around 80 people. In 2004 you had Beslan and the sight of radical Sunni Islamists abusing and terrifying innocent children after taking over a school.

Also, in 2004 a terrorist attack outside a Moscow subway station led to the deaths of ten people after a female suicide bomber killed innocents in the name of Islam. The year 2004 was particularly bloody because terrorists were also responsible for the downing of two Russian passenger planes (female Chechen suicide bombers were blamed); Islamic insurgents also attacked Nazran in Ingushetia and roughly 100 Ingushetian Interior Ministry troops were killed; and many other acts of terrorism took place including the assassination of Chechen President Akhmed-hadj Kadyrov and a suicide attack against a subway train in Moscow which killed at least 40 people.

Other more prominent attacks apply to a suicide bomber killing 5 people within the easy reach of the Kremlin in Moscow in 2003. In the same year a passenger train was blown up between Kislovodsk and Mineralnve which led to the deaths of at least 40 people in southern Russia; a military hospital in Mozdok, North Ossetia, was also blown up by a suicide bomber which resulted in the deaths of at least 50 people; and two female Chechen suicide bombers killed 15 people during a rock festival at Moscow’s Tushino airfield.

Countless other terrorist attacks have happened and around 129 hostages in Moscow’s Dubrovka Theatre were killed in 2002. These terrorist attacks, and so many others which I have not mentioned throughout the Russian Federation, highlight that no region is out-of-reach because Chechens and Islamists have taken their deadly carnage to many places.

In recent times it appeared that the situation had been contained to limited areas within the Caucasus region and that the worse was over. This does not imply that the threat of terrorism had completely gone away because this was never the case. However, compared with the situation in the 1990s and up until 2005 when you had countless terrorist attacks; then it did appear that the security forces alongside regional interior troops were gaining the upper hand.

However, the latest terrorist attack which killed at least 38 people is a stark reminder that terrorism, radical Islam, and ethnic nationalism, is still a potent force within the Russian Federation.

It is noticeable, however, that Sergei Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, hinted (March 29, 2010) that the subway explosions may have their roots and links to the Islamic insurgency along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Lavrov stated that “We all know that the Afghan-Pakistani border, in the so-called no-man’s land, the terrorist underground is very well entrenched.” He continued by stating that “We know that many people there actively plot attacks, not just in Afghanistan, but also in other countries. Sometimes the trails lead to the Caucasus. “

Interestingly, B.Raman (Additional Secretary (retd), Cabinet Secretariat, Govt. of India, New Delhi) also links the current crisis to a broader area and B. Raman is an expert in this field.

B. Raman states that “Western skepticism about the Russian evidence regarding the links of the Chechen terrorists with Al Qaeda has been coming in the way of strong action against the Chechen terrorists operating from Pakistani sanctuaries with Saudi money. This skepticism can be compared to the US skepticism over Indian evidence regarding the international dimensions of the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LET) and its links with Al Qaeda. Only after the LET killed six US nationals in Mumbai during its sea-borne terrorist strikes in the last week of November, 2008, did the Americans start admitting that the LET had become as dangerous as Al Qaeda. The Chechen terrorists have till now not targeted US nationals and interests. Hence, the US skepticism continues. This is a short-sighted approach and will weaken the war against global jihadi terrorism. The LET did not target Americans till November, 2008. That did not make it any the less dangerous as a terrorist organization. The Chechen terrorists are as ruthless and dangerous as the LET or any other associate of Al Qaeda. The world has to be concerned over their activities before it becomes too late.” ( 31-3-2010)

Vojin Joksimovich, the author of The Revenge of the Prophet, states that “In order for the Western world to counter, and conceivably eradicate, the onslaught of Islamic terrorism, the root causes must be addressed.”

However, according to Vojin Joksimovich, “this has not been the case” and he continues by stating that “The most pressing underlying root cause is the Saudi Wahhabi-led petrodollar hegemony over the Islamic world.”

Vojin Joksimovich is clearly highlighting the funding channels which are enabling radical Islam to obtain a major foothold in many conflicts throughout the world and to create radical Islamic cells in any given nation because of ample funding.

He continues by stating that “The Wahhabis, or Wahhabists, make use of these windfall profits primarily for proselytism purposes. However, a modest percentage goes to the terrorist arm of the Wahhabi movement, i.e. Al Qaeda and other similar terrorist organizations in the Islamic world. It is imperative to starve these terrorist organizations of financial resources and recruits.”

The latest terrorist attack in the Russian Federation may lead straight back to the Chechen conflict and hatred which developed during this bloody conflict.

However, it is also clear that international jihadists, finance via the Wahhabis in Saudi Arabia, Islamic cells in various parts of the world, training grounds along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the spread of radical Islam to the Caucasus and other parts of the world is also the root cause.

Therefore, the Russian Federation must once more do a lot of soul searching but clearly Islamic financial funding for terrorism, the international jihadist brigade, and other factors; fused with genuine internal ethnic issues in many host nations, means that this issue is very complex .

The very nature of Islam itself must be studied because this religion does appear to nurture and sanction the holy war throughout the Koran and the Hadiths.

After all, Mohammed did state in the Koran (9:29) “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the last day……and fight People of the Book, who do not accept the religion of truth (Islam) until they pay tribute by hand, being inferior.”
