You're on the Front Line of the Islamic War

By Alan Caruba

Does anyone remember what happened on September 11, 2001? Or is it just “ancient history” at this point? Some three thousand totally innocent Americans were murdered by a sneak attack on the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Who did it? The same murderous Islamists who attacked an event in Garland, Texas to focus attention on the insanity that passes for one of the world’s great “religions.”

Islam is not a religion. It is a cult around the so-called prophet Mohammad and his assertion that the Koran was the word of Allah. The name Islam means “submission” and the purpose of Islam is the tyrannical control over the entire world’s population. Within this alleged holy faith, two sects, Shiites and Sunnis, have been at war almost from its inception, never failing to kill one another.

The turmoil in the Middle East is the direct result of this murderous cult and those Muslims who oppose the killing that flows from Islam must keep their silence or become its victims. Jews and Christians can speak out and debate about aspects of their faiths, but Muslim risk death when they do so. For those Jews in Christians living in Middle Eastern nations, death is always a prospect for no other reason than not being Muslim.

Americans have not yet fully embraced the fact that they are on the front lines along with other Western nations in a global war with Islam.

Will it take another 9/11? Surely the recent attack by two Islamists on May 3rd in Garland, Texas, was another wake up call. They arrived intent on killing as many of those attending the American Freedom Defense Initiative event.  A Garland police officer killed both before anyone  had to die in the name of the Bill of Rights.

But why Garland, Texas? Because, as my friend Amil Imani noted in a recent commentary, “The venue was chosen as a defiant response to a Muslim group that had held a conference entitled ‘Stand With the Prophet Against Terror and Hate.”’ Ironic, eh?  Their response to the event that invited cartoons of Muhammed as to want to kill the participants. If that is not war, I do not know what is.

If Muslims feel hatred, they have earned it here in the United States and elsewhere they have attacked any criticism or defiance, from Charlie Hebdo in France to the countless attacks around the world from Mumbai, India to Bali. A website, the Religion of Peace, com, posts news of the daily assaults by Muslim on both other Muslims and those they call “infidels”, unbelievers.

Pamela Geller who leads the American Freedom Defense Initiative has been widely assailed for her event that was intended to respond to the earlier one in Garland that Amil Amani noted “was convened to eliminate free speech or any expression, verbal and/or artwork depicting the Islamic prophet Mohammad in a negative light.”

“As a life-long expert on the subject of Islam, I felt that this event—more than anything else Pamela could have done—would be the target of a violence terrorist attack in the name of the religion of peace, either real and explosive or on social media at the very least.” It was real.

The Garland police were taking it seriously. Amani said “I was astonished at the large police presence already there. Some of the cops were dressed in tactical gear and carrying AR-15s. The security was ubiquitous, almost as if something untoward had already happened.”

Speaking in an interview with Sean Hannity on May 6, Geller noted that neither the FBI nor the Department of Homeland Security has yet to have contacted her about the thwarted attack. “This is a serious threat” said Hannity. “Basically a Fatwah, a death threat, has now been issued.” Geller noted the lack of interest or concern expressed by those in our government one might expect to at the least make an inquiry, adding that “I have a team now, private security, and NYPD counterterror has been in touch with me.”

Now I call that a level of courage for which Pamela Geller should be praised, but I heard too many criticisms that she was being “provocative.” 


When are Americans going to realize that the Islamists do not need any provocation? When are we going to start acting like we are at war? A good first step would be to stop inviting Muslims to immigrate to America. The Obama administration has been importing as many as possible. The next step is to understand that it is Obama and his administration that are part of the Islamic war.

It is the Pamela Geller’s that are crying out to us. We need to listen. We need to support them. We need to arm ourselves if we have not done so already. Then we need to secure “concealed carry” laws in every State of the Union. We are at war.

Please let me defend Pamela Geller, a brave woman who really should not have to be defended by any American! I have been following her for years now. Over those years, she has stood steadfast not only against the Anti-Semitism and worse shown by the radical Islamist towards her race the Jews but also against the coming genocide aimed at Christians and for that matter anyone who refuses to adhere to radical Islam. The facts are clear as to this yet she is vilified and worse for not only standing her ground against theses savages but for having the temerity to actually challenge those who feel she and others have no right to question them.

Radical Muslims are butchering Jews and Christians! They have openly stated their intent of not only wiping Israel off the face of the earth but also any religion or people that do not follow their sick policies. Of course, our rancid leader in the White house doesn’t have the balls to stand up to or worse is in full sympathy with the very savages that are intent on destroying us. So of course, when a woman in fact has the cajones to stand up and comment, she must be slammed down! Well, not on my watch!

Pam Geller has been correct in everything she has pointed out, including the fact that this President and his party as well as the rest of the cowardly morons who call it hate speech or worse are willing to take away our basic rights in order to force their views on the rest of us!

First and foremost, let’s start with last week and the Draw Mohammed contest that brought about the latest “outrage” in this country. One has the right to say and think what they want so here is the winning cartoon as well as what many are calling the alternative winner. Please note from my perspective the scum balls that were gunned down got exactly what they deserved! Let’s not forget that the Revolution times also had political cartoons that were derogatory to the king of England and one of the outcomes of that is our right of Free speech!

As I say above, Pam Geller is a brave woman and a hero. I am proud to stand with Pamela Geller in what capacity I can and I find it abhorrent and disheartening that far to many out there are willing to give up Free Speech or worse and in fact stand with an evil that rivals Hitler and worse! So I have to ask, where are the rest of us?

While history is indeed repeating itself as to the Jews world wide, it is not the only hatred being practiced against a religion. The Holocaust now being waged against Christians is just as real as that which was waged against and is now once again raising its ugly head against the Jews! And let's now forget their avowed hatred of Western Civilization in general.

My apologies. I was going to include the cartoon but in the end figured we've all seen it.

Islam is very much a regressive, "BC" religion--Before Christ--worshipping a tribal conception of God (exemplified in "our way or death", and "an eye for an eye"), and is clearly false to anyone actually wanting peace among mankind. Its essential nature was enshrined from its very beginning, in which the messenger of Allah tortured Mohammed (by literally squeezing him ever harder, as Mohammed claimed, until he submitted to its will, that he tell others publicly what the voice told him)--so there was no peace there, from the very first, only "submission", and it has never changed since. It might help people to focus upon that if they were informed that, in the ancient usage, an "i" added to the beginning of a word had the same meaning as our "in-" or "un-", so that "Islam" actually meant "I-salam", or "not peace". The inherently unforgiving, tribal nature of "Allah" has insured Islam would live up to that name throughout its history.

And Obama acts more like a tribal king than a democratic leader--and one who sympathizes most with those whose tribal jealousies and lies, taught from birth as the moral standard for Man, have kept them a backward, spiritually impoverished people since before the time of Mohammed. Sincerely peaceful Muslims should know they unwittingly (and unthinkingly) follow the teachings of Jesus, the Prince of Peace, not Mohammed, who murdered and stole and took vengeance as it pleased him, and rationalized them all in his "religious” teachings. Tribal too (only by then it was expanded and called "race") was the use and abuse of black slaves in early America, and it led to the subornation of angry blacks by Islam (in the years I was growing up, between the birth of modern Israel in 1948, and the '60s, which saw an angry, system-fighting Cassius Clay become Muhammad Ali, Lew Alcindor become Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and the rise of the radical Black Muslims in America.

Rather than dealing with the false dogmas of history, actually confronting them as morally wrong and demolishing them, especially the tribal jealousies and false moral positions of the past noted above, mankind has only overlaid them, and upheld them each in turn, and so allowed them to flourish ever more dangerously, in the many pockets of fearful and hateful religious beliefs of old (after the Fall and the original division of Mankind).

Many of us now-older folk knew we--our society, our civilization--were at war with the radicals in the '60s, based upon what we saw with our own eyes. And we knew we were at war with "radical" Islam shortly thereafter, with the 1967 Israeli war for its survival, and the subsequent terrorist menace (that we all saw in the 1972 massacre of the Israeli Olympic team, and later airplane hijackings).

One correction. Islam came after Christianity, beginning in 632 AD.
