Leaving Islam



Defeated by Terrorists?

By Ali Sina 

In an interview on NBC-TV's "Today" show broadcast to coincide with Monday's start of the Republican National Convention in New York , Bush said retreating from the war on terror "would be a disaster for your children.'"

"You cannot show weakness in this world today because the enemy will exploit that weakness," he said. "It will embolden them and make the world a more dangerous place."

When asked "Can we win?" the war on terror, Bush said, "I don't think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that the — those who use terror as a tool are — less acceptable in parts of the world."

Dear Mr. President, This is a war and if you can’t win a war it means you lose it. There are only three alternatives: 

a) You win the war,
b) There would be a cessation of hostilities, 
c) You lose the war. 

It is as simple as that. Our enemy is not going to relent. They will never stop attacking us. Their goal is to destroy our civilization and conquer our world. For this they live and for this they are willing to die. So the option "b" is out. If we can't win this war then we will lose it. This is elemental. Can you think of another alternative? 

We are at a crucial historic moment. Yes it is very likely that we lose this war. But we can also win it if we choose the right strategy. One thing is certain and that is we can’t fight forever. This war is costing us money and hurting a lot. Certainly no one can afford a war that never ends. Our enemy spends close to nothing to stay put and wreak havoc, while we are borrowing from our old age pension, health, education and future generations to stay alive. The longer this war continues the more we lose. Soon the time will come that we just won’t have resources to defend ourselves.  The bombing in Madrid cost the terrorists less than ten thousand dollars. It cost Spain hundreds of lives and billions of dollars both in damages and in the cost to provide security. The attack in 9/11 cost the terrorists less than one hundred thousand dollars. It cost America hundreds of billions of dollars. It cost them 19 lives, but it cost us three thousand lives. Since this wave of terrorism started, the terrorists are winning and we are losing. This is the reality and if we do not heed to it we will be very sorry.

And now you are telling us that this war cannot be won. Well I have been saying this since 9/11. This war cannot be won only by force. We cannot win this war because we are fighting a wrong enemy. It seems that you are fixated with Al Qaida and think once Al Qaida is eliminated the head of terrorism is cut off. I am sorry to say that this is not the case. Al Qaida is not the head of Islamic terrorism. It is just an arm of it. This monster has many arms, millions and millions. Each Muslim can be an arm and each arm can operate independently and it does not need instructions from Al Qaida or anyone else.  As we saw in recent days, a couple of seemingly innocuous Muslim booksellers could decide to turn deadly terrorists, act independently and bring about tremendous devastations.

Dear Mr. President, if you want to fight this beast you have to go for its heart. You have to understand what makes the Islamic terrorists tick, what motivates them, why they hate you and why they are willing to die in order to kill you. Terrorists are not your average criminals. Terrorists are motivated by an ideology. It is this ideology that drives, seemingly normal average citizens, into unthinkable acts of barbarity. We cannot win the war against terrorism if we do not eliminate the ideology behind it. 

I heard your opponent say that he can win this war. This only means that if he is elected, we will lose a few more years until he too will come to the same conclusion that you have finally arrived and after expending billions of dollars and the loss of more lives he would admit to what you have already confessed that the war against terrorism cannot be won. 

This is the truth. We can't win the war against terrorism merely by fighting against it. The only way to win, is to fight against the ideology behind it. Unfortunately this is the strategy that no one is talking about and that is why we are losing this war. If we do not win this war now, tomorrow may be too late. Once the Muslims influence our politicians, as in some cases like in England and Canada, it would be impossible to fight terrorism ideologically. Canada has recognized the rule of Sharia and has already passed the blasphemy law to silence those who criticize Islam; and England is trying to pass the same in this coming Fall. If you can't fight the ideology of terrorism, you will not be able to fight the terrorism itself and this war is doomed to be lost.  

Do you remember Abdurahman Alamoudi, the prominent American Muslim leader that you, in November 2001, invited for the celebration of the Ramadan in the White House?  

Alamoudi had long enjoyed an open door to the White House, dating back to the early years of the Clinton administration. He was the founder and former executive director of the American Muslim Council and the American Muslim Foundation. He was a “moderate Muslim” according to the White House calculation. He was chosen by the Clinton administration to train and certify chaplains for Pentagon's newly-created Muslim military chaplain corps.  

Pentagon has a Muslim military chaplain corps? This is ludicrous. It is like having Nazi instructors in the American military during the WWII. How can the Americans be so naïve?

Well, Alamoudi has been convicted as a terrorist with links to Osama bin-Laden. He was convicted in a plot to assassinate the Crown Prince Abdullah.

The truth is that Alamoudi is a Muslim and it is his religious duty to spread Islam. How he does that is also prescribed in the Quran. In simple words the method to spread Islam is through terrorism. You and I may derogatorily call it terrorism but Muslims see it as holy Jihad. They are waging their Jihad. They are fulfilling their religious duty. Do you blame them for being good Muslims?  

The concept of jihad is interpreted in the Egyptian school curriculum  exclusively as a military endeavor. In religious terms, it is war against Allah's enemies, i.e., the infidels. In secular terms, it is war against the homeland's enemies and a means to strengthening the Muslim states in the world. In both cases, jihad is encouraged, and those who refrain from participating in it are denounced.

Jihad is "The obligation to fight the infidels with utmost vigor and power until they become weak, their state disappears and they submit to the rule of the law of Islam." [1]

The Quran says: "Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies,"  (Q.8:6)

Mr. President, you called Islam a religion of peace; you celebrate their festivities in the White House; you constantly praise Islam and the Muslims and try to give them legitimacy in America. But when they want to practice their faith and promote it the way their prophet did and told them to do, you call them terrorists! There is a contradiction here. 

Do you know that Islam’s raison d'être is to topple the governments of the world and establish the Khilafat? This is the goal set by Muhammad. Muslims are not allowed to have different opinion from their prophet. So when you recognize Islam as a legitimate religion in America and even let its representatives inside the White House, aren’t you showing them the green light to destroy your democracy and take over your country? Islam is the enemy of democracy, of freedom and of human rights. How can you recognize such an ideology and grant its proponents, representation in your government?  

Do you know why great powers such as great Arabian tribes, Yemen, Byzantium, Egypt and Iran succumbed to Islam? It is because their rulers underestimated the destructive power of Islam. It is because they were not inimical to Islam while Islam was inimical to them. If you and I live under the same roof and you think of me as your friend, trust me, looking for ways to please me and share your space with me amicably, but I think of you as my enemy, an usurper of my god given heirloom, waiting for a chance to stab you from the back, guess which one of us will survive? Muslims think that the Earth belongs to Allah and those who believe in him. They call your land Dar al Harb (the House of War) They see you and I as usurpers of what belongs to them. [2] [3] [4] [5]

Today the world is committing the same mistake of the old rulers. Once again we are underestimating the evil of Islam. This is all because we do not read the history and know nothing of this cult. You must read the actual history of Islam to fathom its deceptive and destructive power. Muslims in America and in all other non-Muslim countries are hiding in Trojan horses. Distrust them Sir! They are not your friends. They are either terrorists or waiting to become terrorists. They do not believe in democracy; they do not believe in freedom and human rights; they believe in Islam and Islam has its own set of values, very much distinct from your values.  

There is no such thing as "moderate" Muslim. They are either believers or not believers. If they do not believe in Jihad, in violence, waging war in Dar al Harb then they are not Muslims. 

Do not let Islam deceive you just because it wears the mask of religion. Islam is an imperialistic power that aims to topple your government and destroy your world.

The ancient Chinese philosopher Sun zi said "know your enemy" before going into battle. For if "you know your enemy and know yourself," he wrote, "you need not fear the result of a hundred battles." But, Sun zi warned, "If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat."

Mr. President, do you know your enemy? I am afraid you have not even identified your enemy let alone knowing him. You are fighting a phantom while sheltering the real enemy in your home. The enemy is not terrorism, the enemy is Islam Sir. As you quite rightly said, terrorism is just a tool by which your enemy operates. Forget about the tool; fight the enemy.

You are right Sir. We can’t defeat terrorism. Once you understand that, you are one step closer to victory. Now you have to take the next step and identify and target the enemy. The enemy is Islam. It is Islam that creates and drives terrorism. It is Islam that motivates these benighted souls to murder and give up their own lives cheerfully. You have to eradicate Islam if you want to eliminate terrorism. Islam is the tree and terrorism is the bitter fruit of that tree. Chop this tree Mr. President. Chop this tree and free over a billion wretched souls from their slavery.

The good news is that you CAN win against Islam. Islam is not a religion. It is an imperialistic movement created by a psychopath to control people. Religion is the façade. Muhammad used religious sentiment of the people to rouse the ignorant people to submission and make them do whatever he dictated. This truth must be exposed and Islam must be defeated ideologically. Once you win over Islam, you will have eliminated terrorism too. But you will have done much more! You will have brought peace, stability, democracy and prosperity to a great portion of humanity. They won’t be your enemies anymore. They would be your friends and allies.  Nazism is quashed; communism is quelled; now it the time to destroy this last bastion of evil and usher mankind into a new era of peace and prosperity.

It is not difficult to win over Islam. In fact it is extremely easy. Islam is a huge edifice founded on lies. It survives and thrives on Ignorance and fear. It is the greatest and most dangerous fraud in History.  It will collapse with exposure of the truth. You do not need to spend hundreds of billions of dollars in armaments or send young men and women to war. This war is the war of ideas. All we need to do is to promote the truth and falsehood will vanish, just as the darkness of the night vanishes when the sun rises.
