Islamic Leaders Step Out From Behind the Curtain
By Barbara J.
It should be obvious to even the most unobservant
among us that the choreographed reaction to the Danish editorial cartoons
has been a very methodical and well-thought-out plan by intellectual
The world-wide “outrage” expressed by Muslims was
not spontaneous. Had the rage been expressed over five months ago,
when the editorials were first published an argument could have been made
that the anger was genuine. Instead, the indignation has evolved into
a policy-changing event that has exposed a higher level of Islam: The
world government of Islam. Some of the leaders within Islam have
stepped out from behind the curtain and shown their faces.
Everyone is familiar with the military branch of
Islam. There are the more infamous groups such as al Qaeda, Hamas,
and Hezbollah and some lesser known branches like the Islamic Martyr’s
Brigade. Consider those groups the Islamic army and marines. Islam
has a very robust recruiting operation that promises what no money can
buy: 72 virgins and endless paradise awaits all martyrs. Of
course, there is no real verification that this “Islam Wants You!”
slogan is actual fact, but that doesn’t seem to deter young men from
signing on the dotted line.
With Hamas now in charge of the Israeli problem, the
powers-that-be within Islam have been able to turn their attention to the
world at large.
As with any entity, there must be someone in charge. There
must be someone calling the shots and approving the plans. The world
now knows who a few of those people are. Osama bin Laden is probably
not one of them.
Bin Laden is a general but is kept on a short leash
by those above him because Bin Laden has no real understanding of how the
Western mind works. He is the preverbal bull-in-a-china-shop. Bin
Laden is useful at times but unpredictable. He is a good recruiter
but a poor diplomat. Few of Islam’s far-reaching plans can be
accomplished by brute force. Indeed, the leaders of Islam know that
man for man on the battlefield their usually under-equipped and uneducated
forces don’t stand a chance against an American soldier or Marine. So,
the political machine within Islam has swung into motion.
In Pakistan, it is Qazi Hussain Ahmed, the leader of
the large radical terrorist group Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal. Ahmed is
working to overthrow Musharraf and replace him with a strict Islamic
government. Islamic leaders in Pakistan are using the cartoons as an
excuse to weaken the leadership of the secular, pro-American president. The
over-throw of Musharraf would also have the added bonus of Pakistan’s
nuclear arsenal falling into the hands of Islamic terrorists. One
well placed bullet would make Islam’s dream come true. In the blink
of an eye, Islam would be a nuclear power.
Palestinian immigrant to Denmark, Imam Ahmad Abu
Laban, is one man who can be identified as part of the hierarchy of Islam. Laban
is the Islamic who took the Danish cartoons to a meeting of powerful
Islamic leaders in Saudi Arabia and, feeling those published cartoons
might not be sufficient to enrage the average Muslim, made up a few of his
own. These fake cartoons were quickly identified by the West, but to
the average uneducated Muslim on the street, the accusation of fraud
leveled against a powerful imam was just another outrage. After all,
the average Muslim believes that Muslims don’t lie.
Another powerful Islamic leader is the Saudi Sheikh
Yussef Al-Qaradawi, the founder of the global Islamic organization called
“The Islamic Brotherhood.” Al-Qaradawi is a strong advocate of
strict Islamic law and tells his followers that killing American troops in
Iraq will be rewarded, homosexuals should be hung, and husbands should
beat their wives. He also teaches that “martyrdom” for Islam is the
duty of every Muslim.
But this Islamic government is not new. In 2003,
a group of 225 Islamist clerics, scholars, and businessmen, including
Laban and Al-Qaradawi, met in Saudi Arabia to plan the future actions of
Islam and to network the supporters of global jihad against the evil
“crusading” West. Islam needed direction and leadership and this
group was there to provide just that.
Certainly, not all the plans can be roadside bombs and
stupid young men willing to blow themselves up. Political plans must
be made. Changes in the West must come from within. The world is
now witness to some of those plans.
