Video Podcast – Jihadists at Home and Abroad

In my inaugural video podcast – my first and possibly last – I discuss a Conservative Review piece about the jihadist-loving, Sharia advocating Linda Sarsour, who both spoke of waging jihad on President Trump. Yes, Linda Sarsour, who claims to be an advocate for American women and also Sharia. Not sure how this is simultaneously possible.

Dovetailing from a call for jihad in America, the Daily Mail reports of jihad in the city of Mosul, Iraq. A burqa-clad woman, carrying her infant in arms, blew her self up, while the good guys were attempting to evacuate her from the battle zone. I guess she wasn’t innocent, but a true ISIS believer. read more

Ramadan Isn’t Just for Prayer and Fasting

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Hey – it’s Ramadan. Let’s smash things, burn churches, stab, shoot and bomb the infidels. It’s the perfect kick off to the Muslim HOLY month of Ramadan, which began at sundown Friday, May 26 and runs through June 24. writes that, “Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, introspection and prayer for Muslims, the followers of Islam. Fasting is one of the five fundamental principles of Islam. Each day during Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset. They are also supposed to avoid eating, drinking, smoking and sexual activity, as well as unkind or impure thoughts and words, and immoral behavior.”

I assume that “unkind and impure thoughts,” as well as “immoral behavior,” do not include the murder of close to 200 people, and injury to thousands – so far.

“Muslims break their daily fasts by sharing meals with family and friends.” Then a few jumped into a van with 12 inch knives, drove into London, running over and wiping out dozens, before exiting the van to begin stabbing as many as they could before armed police finally killed them.

“Ramadan is a time to practice self-restraint and self-reflection. Muslims go to work and school and take care of their usual activities during Ramadan; however, some also read the entire Quran, say special prayers and attend mosques more frequently during this time.” read more

“We Are Not Afraid” Hashtag Campaign is a Load of Crap

In the aftermath of the Wednesday terrorist attack in London, many took to Twitter with another “feel-good” hashtag campaign. This time the meme is #WEARENOTAFRAID.

It is another lame attempt by liberals of what Michelle Malkin calls “virtue signaling.” She explains  that hastag campaigns are

Virtue Signaling

“easy advertisements and maudlin displays of one’s resolute opposition to an unidentified something that must be stopped somehow by unspoken means.” It is also an effort for those with no identity of their own to identify with and involve themselves in the crisis without ever having to actually do anything.

Yet unlike previous virtue signaling campaigns like those which claim “solidarity,” the “We Are Not Afraid” campaign is particularly silly and oh-so wrong.

You see, they are afraid – afraid to offend.

The left twists themselves up like pretzels in an effort not to offend. And this is another incident of what their leftist borderless virtue has wrought. Because of their fear of offending all the wrong people, Europe is rapidly losing its identity and culture – voluntarily giving way to savages whose only goal is to conquer, convert and subjugate them. And those who are actually “Not Afraid,” will be murdered. read more

Europe Is Paying for the Mistakes of the Past

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We are well aware of the many ISIS or ISIS inspired attacks throughout Europe. It is interesting that since the rise of ISIS, these attacks appeared directed at the European infidels and not just the long-proclaimed enemy of Islam – Israel.

Not that there are continuing attacks on the Jewish state – there are as there have always been. But recently they have taken a backseat to the mass carnage inflicted upon Europe and the United States by the Islamic State.

But why? Hasn’t it always been the number one cause of Muslims to avenge the oppression of the poor displaced Palestinians and drive the Jews out of Israel and into the sea? Has that not been the clarion call of all Muslims since 1948?

Heck, even individual European nations as well as the EU have, for want of a better term, conspired with Muslim nations and terrorist organizations to take down Israel.

For decades, “Europe had a cushy arrangement – all the world’s jihadists were so fixated on Israel that they were willing to overlook long-standing hatreds against ‘Crusader’ Europe, as long as Europe would help them wage war on Israel.” read more

Understanding the Doctrine of Jihad

from Middle East Forum:

In his June 14 address to the nation, President Obama attributed Omar Mateen’s attack on patrons of Orlando, Fla.’s, Pulse nightclub to “homegrown extremism,” saying “we currently do not have any information to indicate that a foreign terrorist group directed the attack.”

While Obama acknowledged that the Islamic State has called for attacks around the world against “innocent civilians,” he suggested these calls were incidental, emphasizing that Mateen was a “lone actor” and “an angry, disturbed, unstable young man” susceptible to being radicalized “over the Internet.”

It is a terrible thing to misunderstand one’s enemy so deeply. The doctrine of jihad invoked by terrorist groups is an institution with a long history, grounded in legal precedent going back to the time of Muhammad.

Militants who invoke the doctrine of jihad follow principles influenced by Islamic law. The point to be grasped is that the doctrinal basis of jihad generates conditions that can incite “bottom-up” terrorism, which does not need to be directed by jihadi organizations. read more

Podcast – Islam is Sharia – Sharia is Islam – There can no Peace without Sharia

In this episode I dedicate the entire Podcast to Islam and the real stated goal of the religion of peace to spread Sharia throughout the world. I discuss the misconception the West has regarding the meaning of peace. Peace has a completely different meaning to us than it does to Muslims. It’s important that we learn this. And I discuss the Obama administration and its seemingly strange relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood. But is it really so strange. read more

One Resort Understands the Meaning of Economic Jihad

by: the Common Constitutionalist

When we think of the words terror, terrorist and terrorism – the thing that most often comes to mind is horrific loss of life and destruction of property – and actually, property comes in distance second, as it should. Unless it is some ancient monument or structure, that once it is destroyed, it is gone for good – property can always be reclaimed and rebuilt.

But what about livelihood? When a terrorist attack occurs, we never discuss the potential economic effect it may have.

Naturally economic terrorism has no place being discussed in the same breath as death or injury, but don’t for a moment think that groups like ISIS, al-Qaeda, et al aren’t conscious of it. They surely are.

Why does ISIS have a cyber-jihad division? Is it protect their bank accounts, better secure emails and make snazzy websites? Of course not. They’ve had plans to infiltrate various countrys’ infrastructure networks since their inception. They and we, at least our intelligence community, know a cyber-attack on our power grid, water supply and communications could be devastating to a city or the nation.

Yet economic terror doesn’t have to be the result of a large-scale, coordinated master plan. It can simply come from a lone Islamist gunman. read more

Podcast – Muslims in Egypt Blame Violence on Cartoons and Video Games – Communist Cuba is Now the Coolest Place on Earth – Mt St Helens is Recharging

Yes, Muslim leaders and academics in Egypt believe they have found the source of jihad. No it’s not the teachings of radical clerics – it’s the cartoon Tom and Jerry and violent video games that have been driving young men to shoot others and blow them up.

For the liberal elites and the beautiful people in Hollywood, music and the fashion industry, the Communist Island of Cuba is evidently the place to see and be seen – more to be seen. Communist Cuba is cool, assuming you know nothing about it.

It seems Mt St Helens is recharging. Scientists are detecting tiny earthquakes deep below ground – an indication the mountain is slowly coming back to life. There’s nothing to worry yet, but it is again just a matter of time. read more

Radical Islam vs. Free Speech

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I’ve written dozens of articles and broadcast many podcasts on the topic of Islam. For those who have read and listened to mine and others, you can be sure you are far better informed on the subject than virtually all other non-Muslims throughout the world.

We’ve learned about the Five Pillars of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, Sharia, the Caliphate, the Mahdi (the Twelfth Imam) and jihad. We understand by listening to well-known Islamists such as Anjem Choudary that Muhammad had prophesized that Islam “will one day dominate the whole world, such as that Allah (SWT) showed him the east and the west and the authority of the Ummah (Muslims) was over the whole of it, i.e. over the whole world including the USA, Russia, China, India etc.” We know this is not idle propaganda – they really believe this to be true and are battling everyday to achieve it.

Islamists like Choudary preach that “Muslims must believe in and try to realize through their daw’ah (propagation of Islam) and through the establishment of the Khilafah (the Islamic State) whose foreign policy will be jihad to remove all obstacles in the way of the implementation of Islam (i.e. the sharia) everywhere – that a Muslim must not obey, submit or follow anyone or anything other than Allah in his life. This means that democracy is anathema to Islam…”

Knowing all these things, one can only conclude, by their own words, that Western democracy is utterly incompatible with Islam. Whether they are radical Islamists like ISIS and al-Qaeda, who attempt to conquer by force, or supposedly non-violent groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and Hizb-ut Tahrir, who seek to conquer the West by way of Civilization Jihad, the end is still the same – the replacement of democracy and republicanism with theocracy. read more

The Jihad According to Rand Paul

Last month, at the Values Voter Summit, a gathering of conservative activists from around the country, Senator Rand Paul gave a speech on what he called “a worldwide war on Christians by a fanatical element of Islam.”

Anti-Christian persecution, violence, and “religious cleansing” have become common in many Muslim-majority countries. The media, as Paul pointed out, have turned a blind eye. So, too, have President Obama and European leaders.

The senator was careful not to paint all Muslims with the brush of fanaticism. He stressed that only a minority of Muslims read Islamic scripture as mandating an armed struggle against Christians and other “unbelievers.” read more
