is the Cause . . .

One of the problems
receiving too little attention is the part played by Islam in sponsoring
and indoctrinating an active climate of Arab terrorism in Israel.
The problem is the Imams
and the sermons they preach to congregants who attend Mosques each Friday
to learn how to better serve Allah.
congregants get is a weekly dose of pure venom against
Israelis (and Americans) - the infidels, as Islam defines them. The
sermons in our part of the world are rabble-rousing hate speeches of
hostility against Israel, Jews, Judaism and Zionism. In other world areas
Islam also targets Christians and Christianity.
Based on verses embedded
in the Koran the sermons require, indeed demand, the people of Islam
should exterminate all unbelievers. Koranic references and threats to this
effect “outweigh concrete instruction by about 20 to 1”, according to
David Klinghoffer’s analysis in Jerusalem Post, March 19. (Titled
“Read and believe”)
The main thrust of Islam
is to kill unbelievers, pagans and followers of other religions.
Klinghoffer refers to Islam’s “fire breathing hostility” . . .
“unremitting fury” . . . “pagan thrashing passages”. And provides
some specific verses:
is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers
but merciful to one another.”
loves those who fight for His cause . . .”
you do not go to war, He will punish you sternly.”
make war on the infidels who dwell around you.”
make war on the unbelievers . . . Hell shall be their home, evil their
These ordinances may be
hard for Jews and Christians to swallow as their Bibles contain no similar
directives. But Muslims attending weekly prayers have come to expect these
exhortations to obey Allah’s teaching. Unfortunately for non-Muslims, we
must be punished for our unbelief by death at the hands of those “true
The modus operandi of
killing is the choice of the killers. Here are some of the inventive
methods used against Israelis:
bombing. Car and truck bombing. Driving vehicles into people. Machine
gunning crowds. Drive by shooting. Roadside bombing. Ambushes. Grenade
throwing. Invading homes and killing inhabitants. Booby traps. Sniping
Knifing. Axing. Stoning. Smashing heads to pulp with large rocks.
in the US, the cold blooded massacre by kamikaze hijackers exploding
planeloads of people into tall buildings, where thousands can be killed,
vaporized, burnt to death, or buried alive. And many thousands injured.
While every adherent of
Islam is certainly not a terrorist, every Arab terrorist is a Muslim.
Islam is the glue that binds the Arab populations of the Middle East. It
explains why no Arab country was prepared to join the American led
military coalition against another Muslim country. And why, on the
contrary, many individual Arabs are making their way to Iraq to help their
brothers fight the Big Satan and his Christian coalition.
Muslims are also coming
from non-Arab countries such Iran as Indonesia. Such is the unifying power
of Islam which, week in, week out, brainwashes true Muslims to kill
are a believing people, a fighting people,” said Gen. Hazim
al-Rawi, the Iraqi Military spokesman earlier this week. “Jihad
is a must, a duty ordained by God”.
The most effective
terrorists are those who go to terrorist training schools to be taught how
to kill and maim their enemies. Training may take weeks or months,
sometimes years. Having become knowledgeable and expert in the techniques
of their profession they join a cell in an existing terrorist movement.
Islamic Jihad, Hizbollah, Al Asqa Brigade, PLFP, Hamas and others.
the decision to become a terrorist stems directly from weekly attendance
and absorption of the believer’s message at Mosques throughout the
It is essential to
recognize that the precepts of Islam precede the transition to terrorism -
not the other way round. Thus it is not terrorists who become Muslims, but
Muslims who become terrorists.
to the Jews” is what the Imams preach every Friday in Gaza,
Judea and Samaria. It is what their motivated macho congregants,
undoubtedly swayed by the promise of endless sex with 72 black-eyed
virgins (and other heavenly benefits) are honestly led to expect.
This problem will still
confront Israel if the Arabs are awarded yet another state by America and
the anti-Semitic Quartet. Certainly a richly undeserved reward for years
of unrelenting terror against Israel’s civilians and military.
For Arab signatures on a
so called peace document won’t stop Muslim/Arab hatred and terrorism.
The Koran is not concerned for political correctness. Its message is that
its teachings cannot be compromised or eliminated, not even if Israel is
eliminated. (That will be the day!)

coalition’s new regime?
This will be the problem
of the US coalition after it wins the war against Iraq. It will certainly
come to an accord with the new regime. But it will not come to any
accommodation with the Imams.
The US needs to
understand that the Koran compels them to promote terrorism, whether in
Iraq, the US or Europe – wherever Muslims congregate. How will the US
deal with this ongoing problem?
