"From the Mouths of our Enemies" Pt 1

As this debaucle at LCC continues to unfold, one thing I have been asked many times now is, where can we get your book?  It is available on Kindle at Amazon.com, just search for the book title :From the Mouths of our Enemies" and you can then download it in numerous ways.  It is only about four bucks, cheap when you consider the value of the information.

What I am starting here, however is a semi-regular posting of the book, starting with the introduction and proceeding through the entire book, a little at a time. 

So here, as the first installment, is the introduction to "From the Mouths of our Enemies"

Introduction

   From Al Qaeda to Hamas, Islamic Jihad to Hizballah the voices of our enemies weave a harrowing tale.  A gruesome story of hate, malice, scorn and the overriding belief in the superiority of their cause, namely Islam.
 
    The unifying thread with all fundamental Islamic groups today is simply the destruction of all non-Muslim entities, to be replaced with sharia based and Qur'an inspired governance.
 
   The 57 Islamic nations across the globe are perceived by most non-Islamic eyes as generally peaceful, yet there is the undeniable march towards the next caliphate, and this book hopes to show how this march presents a palpable threat using the words of those who want nothing less than the deaths of you, me and the rest of us dirty kuffirs.
 
    By ignoring the words of our enemies we risk losing everything we have worked for.  By blindly following those who claim, "There is nothing to see here, move along" we will be putting ourselves in a position that is untenable and one which will surely bring the end of America as we know it today.

   My first glimpse of fundamental Islam came during the Achille Lauro incident and the deliberate targeting of Leon Klinghoffer, a Jew.  I remember asking myself what was wrong with this picture and began to pursue some answers.  I approached Islam without any bias or pre-conceived notions.  I became a student doing disciplined research using the existing definitive works on Islam and the Middle East and have since discovered a world I did not know existed. 
    Eventually I found, to my amazement that Islam, as practiced and defined today is not the "religion of peace" its adherents claim it is, nor what American and Western leaders are insisting it is. 
   The voices which carry the most weight and have the greatest impact on Islam as it currently stands in 2009 are not moderate or mediating, they are ugly, vicious, hateful voices coming from the four main schools of Sunni Islamic jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi'i, and Hanbali) and the Shiite schools (Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-`ashriyyah, Al-Ja`fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) and all basing their firebrand in the Qur'an, sunna and hadiths of Muhammad. 
    I read the Qur'an and found it, as anyone who reads it objectively will find, to be a ghastly collection of invective, vitriol and racist screeds which seem to be designed to instill hatred of any and all non-Muslims.  Yes, there are some "lets-just-all-get-along" verses but by and large Islam subjugates non-Muslims and calls for their conversion or death.
   I am called an Islamophobe, a racist (what race is Islam again?) and a host of other labels all designed to shut me up.  I have been told that since I don't read or speak Arabic I can't possibly understand the Qur’an and that due to my lack of "Muslimness" I must be taking what I read out of context. 
  
     So does this mean that Sura 9, verse 29, “Fight against such of those who have been given the scripture and believe not in Allah nor the last day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by his messenger, and follow not the religion of truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low” is an invitation to have tea and a biscotti?  No school of Islamic jurisprudence interprets this Sura as anything but one aspect of jihad, to be followed by every Muslim everywhere and for all time. 
    This anger Muslims have when non-Muslims begin to ask pointed questions about Muhammad, or Allah or virtually any aspect of Islam is indicative of the inability of Muslims to hold Islam up to the light of critical, rational thought. 
    Allowing for the possibility that Islam might not be the last perfect religion, and that Muhammad might not be al-insan al-kamil, the "perfect man" sends Muslims into a world of anger they never knew existed.  Well, they anger me with their threats of death, enslavement and subjugation and their words I hope you and others familiar to you will take to heart. 
 
     Remember, history teaches us that our sworn enemies have an ideology, a doctrine under which they operate and which is non-negotiable. We have only to listen and believe what they say.  When our enemy tells us they will do all they can to convert, subjugate or kill every last non-Muslim, and that they will never stop.....ever, we must take them at their word.
 
    We must hear the words of Muhammad and we must understand the tenets that are in use.  They speak sweet prose laced with a poisonous vision which has to be confronted, challenged and defeated. Confrontation may be the only option given what the Qur'an says about a Muslims responsibility to wage war "in the name of Allah".  We can win the potential conflagration by listening to what comes from the mouths of our enemies. 

"There may be moderate Muslims but there is no moderate Islam" Geert Wilders 2006


    This book is dedicated to Robert Spencer, a man I have never met but hope to one day.  His scholarship on Islam, his insistence on facts, his devotion to the truth have been an inspiration to me, and enabled me to pursue the truth about Islam today.

First of all, Robert Spencer isn't engaged in scholarship of any sort. He hasn't published any peer-reviewed articles AFAIK. And if you look up Danios' refutations of Spencer on Loonwatch, you'll see why Spencer is afraid to debate him. (Danios himself is a genuine scholar, soon to receive his PhD.)

Also, you seem utterly unaware of the "Topkapi Declaration" and "A Common Word", which represent the consensus of a very wide range of Islamic scholars, and which unequivocally call for peaceful coexistence. Instead you focus on the fringe elements of the Muslim world. Like attracts like, I suppose. I don't see you condemning the flagrantly unust ethnic cleansing of Palestine, which Geert Wilders unabashedly supports.

Ah, here it is, the nugget. The phrase "ethnic cleansing of Plaestine". It will be useless to reference Elan Papes book, which I have read and which has been mostly diecredited by not only his peers but the general academic community. There is not time nor space here to do 5thousand words, but if you seriously believe that there really is such a thing as a "Palestinian people" or that there is actually a land of Palestine which the Arabs can lay claim to, may I suggest a re-reading of history. Plaestine as the land of the "Palestinins" does not exist, never has. The Palestinian people do not exist, they are a fabrication based in stolen history, a physical and political construct designed exclusively to destroy Israel and the Jews. The refugees who claim they are Palestinian are, in fact Arab.
A little study on Caananites, Assyrians and others of the time shows the real story.
Your anti-semitism is showing, as it does with anyone who uses that phrase. It is the Arabs, by virtue of Islamic doctrine who are doing the ethnic cleansing, not the Jews.
Let's talk more after you learn a bit more of the truth.

Umm, I'm really quite sorry to burst your bubble, but I really must point out the fact that Jews are Arabs. It's not anti-Semitism to point out the ethnic-cleansing and apartheid perpetrated by the Israelis, since BOTH the Palestinians and the Israelis are Semitic people. Science has already proven that there really isn't any genetic difference between the folks from that area who call themselves Israelis and the folks who call themselves Palestinians and have also lived there right along with them for many, many generations. It's no wonder that the Christians in that part of the world side with the Palestinians. If Islam was the problem, then we wouldn't see so much blatant persecution of the Arab Christians in Israel. You'll have to find another basis for defending genocide and apartheid, because the one you're using simply isn't fact based...though I doubt that matters much to you.

Not really:

The research, published in the 2010 issue of the American Journal of Human Genetics does not agree with your assessment, the history of the Jewish people could be found in their genomes, different from all others...

Anonymous,

Do you actually understand anything about genetics? 'Cause what you're saying doesn't at all refute what bint alshamsa said, but you seem to think you've found a "gotcha!" argument for some reason.

And Barry,

You don't know what you're talking about. By "Palestinian people", we're talking about the people who live there now. And whose parents and grandparents lived there. And by "there", I mean the area currently known as Palestine. If it doesn't exist, what exactly do you think is there? A yawning chasm?

You're playing semantic games to avoid addressing the issue directly, and it's unconvincing. Nobody's claiming what you're pretending we're claiming, and attempting to drag the Canaanites and Assyrians into it doesn't change that.

It is the Jews who are the true natives of Palestine, not the Arab Muslims who have hijacked the term Palestinian...just ask Zahir Muhsein of the Palestine Liberation Organization:

"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our Jihad against the state of Israel for our Arab unity..."
"...Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism..."
~Zahir Muhsein, Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member, March 31, 1977~

I’m still waiting for archaeology’s treasure trove, the Big Find," of an Arab Palestinian yield of artifacts that show who the first king of Palestine was, when Palestine was founded, and by whom, what the language was, what the name of the currency was, what the religion of ancient Palestine was, and what is demise was…

The United States and Israel are the only ones doing anything to help the poor oppressed Palestinians, even as they‘re launching rockets into Israel, in order to kill innocent civilians...

Fruitbat, apparently you don't read the American Journal of Human Genetics, and you may want to have a look at the PLO or the Hamas charter, here’s part of article 7 and article 8, from 1988:

The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree (cited by Bukhari and Muslim).

Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Qur’an its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief.

Barry,

The ethnic cleansing is beyond dispute; the evidence is found in Israel's own archives, and in the writings of Ben Gurion, Moshe Dayan, and many others. You can read words by Israel Prime Ministers which pre-date the existence of Hamas: http://www.monabaker.com/quotes.htm and which are all the more chilling because these practices were actually carried out.

Of course the Palestinians are Arabs. Arabs comes in many flavours. In any case, it does not matter what you call them, or what they call themselves. What matters is that they have been there since time immemorial; even Israeli geneticists concede this fact openly. In many cases, Palestinians Muslims and Christians are the descendants of Jews, and it is plainly evident that many Jews are of Arab and European stock.

http://www.springerlink.com/content/4b9fltx6cnc9l18q/
"Part, or perhaps the majority, of the Muslim Arabs in this country descended from local inhabitants, mainly Christians and Jews, who had converted in the seventh century AD. These local inhabitants, in turn, were descendants of the core population that had lived in the area for several centuries, some even since prehistoric times."


Furthermore, the ethnic cleansing continues today, in plain sight, with the forced expulsion of Muslims and Christians from their homes, the levelling of Arab villages, the desecration of Muslim graveyards, the destruction of Palestinian crops and property, and so on. If you deny the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, then you are just as heinous (and operating under the same psychological impulses) as those who deny the Holocaust -- to self-justify your irrational hatred of a people.

This recent, poignant piece by Max Blumenthal, quoting Israelis who openly acknowledge the ethnic cleansing themselves, and who live close to some of the survivors, is a memorable read:

I agree with you Fruitbat, the ethnic cleansing of Jews is beyond dispute, they are the most persecuted people in the world.

From time immemorial, Palestine hosted the independent nation-state known as Judea, successor entity to the northern biblical kingdom of Israel and the southern biblical kingdom of Judah; and it was inhabited not by Arabs, but by Jews. The only reason why the name Palestine is used is because of Emperor Hadrian's blatant propaganda effort in 135 AD to delegitimize national Jewish claims to their Land, the very same thing the Arab Muslims are doing this day. The so called “Palestine Nation / State” led by Arabs never existed….ever.

Why is it that Arab minorities enjoy full citizenship and equal rights in Israel, when Jews are reduced to dhimmi status in Muslim lands?

Mass murders of Jews in Arab lands are of frequent occurrence. Jewish Communities in Libya were decimated in 1875, thousands were murdured in Algiers during the years of 1805, 1815 and 1830 by Ali Burzi Pasha. Untold numbers were murdered between 1864 and 1880 in Morocco.

Hundreds of thousands were made to walk barefoot or wear shoes of straw when outside the ghetto's of Tunisia and Egypt, and throughout the Ottoman Empire, were they were executed on charges of apostasy.

The Jews were persecuted in their own land by the Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini who tried diligently to ethnically cleanse the Jews from their own land.

Does the the Hebron massacre in 1929 where the Grand Mufti gave the call to "Kill the Jews everywhere" in a clear attempt of annihilation mean anything to you or are you all caught up in Taqiyya?

I'm here to talk to Barry, who at least has some genuineness and writing skills, despite his warped perspective. I actually have a life and cannot respond to every loon on the internet, sorry. You should be reading Shlomo Sand and Ali Abunimah, once you get past Dr. Seuss.
