Know Your Enemy & You Probably Don’t
“One might think that if international law enforcement and Western intelligence agencies discovered a twenty-year old document revealing top-secret plans – by the oldest Islamist organization with one of the most extensive terror networks in the world – to launch a program of “cultural invasion” in conquest of them, that news would scream from headlines on front pages and above the fold of the New York Times and Washington Post.” [AINI, 2006, abbreviated]
Maybe you knew from the beginning. Maybe you suspected but kept an open mind. Maybe you’re still working through it. Most of us can pinpoint a moment when the light bulb went off: ‘This just isn’t American.’ When did you realize something with this president was awry?
Remember the now infamous Obama pledge to “fundamentally change” America? If Barack Hussein Obama had stated that in the context we now know he meant it, would Americans have embraced the idea? Of course not, that’s why he didn’t.
Information Dominance – The difference between information available to opposing sides; the difference between understanding information in the context of its specific purpose.
Until a few months ago I was convinced Communism was at the core of understanding Obama and by understanding him I’d understand America’s enemy. Just when I thought I had it all figured out I was confused again. And isn’t that the way it goes with Obama. No one’s that ‘incompetent,’ clearly it is by design. Not knowing your enemy is the equivalent of shadow boxing, you’ll wear yourself out and you can’t win.
Barack Obama came at the end of the Baby Boomer generation and his mother at the budding cusp of it. He was double dipped in its revolutionary mentality. History reminds us that era was prime for Communists to grab fertile minds on our college campus’ and they wasted no time. About 25% of Americans are Baby Boomers, who, for both its good and bad, literally gave birth to what we see in America today. Read Cloward-Piven and Saul Alinsky strategies.
By now most of us know that Obama’s youth was saturated in third world cultures reeking of anti-American sentiment. His character was nurtured by people just as stealthily steeped in pro-communist influence. Both are monumental in understanding precisely ‘where’ Obama is trying to take America. What some of us haven’t pieced together is that Communism is just a symptom of a much larger and considerably more immediate danger: Islamic extremism.
Islamic extremists use Communist tactics, which is why that felt so familiar (see last article). Understanding that Communism is merely a vehicle to drive Islamic law in America allows us to begin to know our real enemy. And, America, we need to get there fast.
Before Obama we had little cause to learn the intricacies of Communism let alone of Muslim Islamists. Bringing ourselves up to par on Communism was relatively easy but Muslim ways are a whole ‘nother animal. Understanding how Muslims are working in America is urgently needed if we’re going to save ourselves. In that respect perhaps Obama did us an unintended justice, as we would otherwise surely remain wholly unaware.
Muslim extremists use what they refer to as their “religion,” Islam, as a spring board into American culture. They learned early-on to exploit American civil liberties. Islam relies on their Koran, written about 600-years after Christ’s birth. Muslims believe the Koran is an accounting of revelations from God to their prophet Muhammad and it dictates Sharia law. Not all Muslims adhere to Sharia and many in America have no interest in living it. Hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide don’t live according to Sharia but they are being put under greater pressures to conform.
Biblical history plays a profound role in understanding the irreconcilable differences between the Muslim world, Israel and the West. It goes back to Abraham who descended from Adam (as in ‘Adam & Eve’). In Genesis 17 of the Biblical Old Testament God promises Abraham:
“… Thou shalt be a father of many nations … I will make thee exceedingly fruitful and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant. And I will give unto thee and to thy seed after thee the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession … .”
Note: ‘Canaan’ is an ancient term for present-day Israel, the West Bank and Gaza Strip plus parts of Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.
Abraham married a Hebrew, Sarah, and unable to have children she gave to Abraham her Egyptian servant named Hagar. Hagar bore Abraham’s son, Ishmael. Years after Sarah gave Abraham a son named Isaac and they lived in Canaan (the Israel region). Eventually Hagar was cast away and she returned with her son to her homeland of Egypt. Muslims descend from Hagar; Jews & Christians descend from Sarah. Therein lies the innate hatred Muslims have for Christians and no amount of apologies or foreign aid is going to fix it. Clearly God did make Abraham the Father of many nations.
Muslims are comprised of various sects and institutions. The Muslim Brotherhood is an organization of Salafi Muslim (“Salafists”), who are the ones working to spread Sharia law in America. Salafists in particular became more interested in a violent Jihad – a ‘holy war’ or ‘struggle.’ Al Qeada, for example, came out of the Muslim Brotherhood and their leader is a ‘Muslim Brother.’
Islam’s Sharia Law dictates an entire way of life for Muslims. It governs their complete existence, from personal practices of faith to how the world should be ruled. Sharia law is the polar opposite of America’s Constitution, which draws very clear lines between religion and government. Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy puts it this way:
“Sharia law is patently incompatible with the Constitution of the United States … [it] precludes unalienable and constitutionally guaranteed rights. Those who dispute this are either ignorant of the true nature of Sharia or they’re deliberately misrepresenting the truth [known as] ‘lying for the faith.’”
Gaffney adds that ‘lying for the faith’ is an obligation under Sharia. That amoral approach to ‘religion’ should give Americans a good idea of what they’re up against. Sharia law can be more aptly defined as an instrument for totalitarian control. That, coupled with a well documented propensity for violence and human torment, particularly horrific against women, is what makes radical Islam so very dangerous.
What Americans are experiencing today is the Muslim Brotherhood’s phase of ‘Civilization Jihad.’ This is detailed by the Muslim Brotherhood through only recently exposed ‘The Project’ papers written as a proclamation against Jews and ‘People Of The Cross.’ Authored in 1982, the papers were not found until a raid just after 9/11 attacks in 2001; and they were not published at all until 2005, even then limitedly so in France. The Project lays out Islamist goals for the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Global Jihad.”
AINI.Org released this article in 2006, The Muslim Brotherhood ‘Project’: Conquer The West (abbreviated excerpt):
One might think that if international law enforcement and Western intelligence agencies discovered a twenty-year old document revealing top-secret plans by the oldest Islamist organization with one of the most extensive terror networks in the world, to launch a program of “cultural invasion” in eventual conquest of them, that the news would scream from headlines published on the front pages and above the fold of the New York Times and Washington Post.
Such a document was recovered in a raid by Swiss authorities in November 2001, two months after the horror of 9/11. Since that time information about this document, known in counterterrorism circles as “The Project”, and discussion regarding its content has been limited to the top-secret world of Western intelligence communities. Only through the work of an intrepid Swiss journalist, Sylvain Besson of Le Temps, and his book published in October 2005 in France (The Conquest of the West: The Islamists’ Secret Project), has information regarding The Project finally been made public. One Western official has described The Project as “a totalitarian ideology of infiltration which represents, in the end, the greatest danger for European societies.”
Civilization Jihad creates peaceful conditions in preparing for the terrifying violence that will finish what is directed of them by the Koran: Subduing “the infidel.”
By 2010 the Muslim Brotherhood demonstrated even more readiness to move from the phase of ‘propaganda and base-building’ to one of revolutionary action. In February 2011 after Mubarak was removed from power, Egypt’s Supreme Council announced a highly irregular, new working relationship with the violence-prone Muslim Brotherhood Salafists.
‘The Project’ Papers
Part I describes Global Jihad and much of it is taken from the Communist Goals for America as read into our Congressional Record in 1963. Reportedly America is currently undergoing the Islamic “Departure” stages of 9, 10 & 11. Click link for original document, the English translation begins on page 15.
Part II is based on Part I and discusses how the Muslim Brotherhood plans to destroy America from the inside. There are reportedly 80-cases of these documents stored under lock and key by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), who’s released only a portion of them – and only to the Muslim Brotherhood. Click link for its original “Explanatory Memorandum,” the English translation begins on page 15.
Our Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reportedly refuses these documents to our own Congress. We’ve seen the Left media’s persecution of Congressmen who ask for information on Muslims already in our government. There’s a reason for the Left’s irrational and concoted, melodramatic over-reaction, rooted in but certainly not limited to the Democrat Party. In my opinion it’s fair to say, be suspect of any Congressman (or candidate) that tries to tell you otherwise.
The Gaffney video series, its first embedded below, provides absolutely shocking documentation of the overwhelming number of fund raising “Influence Operations” and “operatives” that Islamic extremists have garnered. They create one organization only to spin it off into three more and so on. They’ve been practicing Civilization Jihad at relatiely unfettered (unrecognized) speed in the United States for no less than the past two decades, embraced by the Democrat Party and in-roaded by way of their platform.
Islamist extremists began infiltrating the Conservative movement during the Bush Administration at behest of that era’s goodwill naivete’ and a few ill-informed advisors. Bush implemented preventative policies and prosecuted terrorists, then being clearly identified as ‘terrorists.’ Obama has moved so aggressively to the far radical Left that the mere word ‘terrorist’ isn’t allowed and understanding their ways has been cleansed from our Internet and military materials. This is an urgent and self-destructive momentum that must be dealt with.
Now you know your enemy. The next time you learn of Muslim demands to consume American culture, use your voices. We’ve seen how not reacting to ‘seemingly harmless’ initiatives leads to unthinkable consequences. This requires each of us. There is power in numbers and knowledge is power and we have both. We won’t win every battle but we must win this war.
From Chapter III of The Art Of War about 200-400 b.c.: “Know Your Enemy”
Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
