Muslims and Japanese Have Something in Common

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Propaganda can be an effective and deadly tool for true believers. We found this out early in our war against radical Islamists and something that Israel is all too familiar with.

We are all well aware of what is said to await the martyrs of Islam, the homicide bombers who blow up innocents and themselves – all because they have been convinced of a heavenly reward for doing so.

For us Americans it began on October 23, 1983, when a suicide bomber drove a truck, packed with explosives into the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, killing 241 military personnel.

So brainwashed are these mind-numbed Islamists that they will do virtually anything they are told. They have been convinced that they must martyr themselves to further the cause. But now they have gone beyond the point of just individualized propaganda and have taken to the masses – ramping up the insanity further – if that’s possible.

In Islamabad Pakistan, a woman, in full Burkha, took to a microphone to make a public pronouncement, which has since gone viral.  The woman, identified as Dr Umme-e-Muhammad, told all that the Christians and Jews (she forgot the Hindus) were busy plotting against Muslims. read more

You Say Islamist – I Say Wahhabist

by: the Common Constitutionalist

According to Saudi’s Arabia’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Asheikh, both ISIS and al-Qaeda are enemy number one. I guess he couldn’t choose just one. Maybe it’s one of those 1 and 1A kinds of things.

Off topic as it is – who chooses the names for these characters anyway? Do they get to choose? If so, why must they always be so long? Could you imagine having to endorse a check or sign one of the tiny electronic keypads at the grocery store – or signing autographs for the Grand Mufti groupies? Sheesh!

Anyway, the Mufti – oh excuse me – the Grand Mufti stated emphatically that, “The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism … have nothing to do with Islam and (their proponents) are the enemy number one of Islam.”

Yet about the time he was condemning the two terror groups for their barbarism, he was signing off on one of the largest mass executions in the country’s history. They executed 47 “criminals.” Among these criminals was a Shiite cleric, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr (again with the names). This did not please Shiite Iran, as response to the executions, they attacked and burned the Saudi embassy in Tehran.

No one knows exactly what  their “crimes” were – only that the verdict against the “47 criminals was based on Allah’s Book and the Prophet’s Sunnah.” read more

Don’t Be Intimidated Into Silence

by: the Common Constitutionalist

This morning Glenn Beck said his security analyst and former CIA officer Buck Sexton at the Blaze confirmed that Homeland Security held the official release of San Bernardino radical Syed Farook’s name for several hours to give enough time for the terrorist’s family along with Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR to hold a press conference.

I published Farook’s name around 8:30 PM on the night of the shooting – although I had it backwards and spelled slightly different. At the time I called him Farooq Saeed, but that’s to be expected considering how rapidly reports were coming out at the time.

But just imagine our government doing something like this for any other religion. Imagine some radicalized Baptist shooting up a government facility and our president instructing authorities not to release the name until the Westboro Baptists had readied a prepared public statement. The press would go insane with rage, as well they should.

We must be well aware by now, our president has a certain kinship toward Muslims, radical or not. Let me reiterate. Obama is not a Muslim. As Ted Cruz said just 2 days ago: “Obama is an unmitigated socialist who won’t stand up and defend the United States of America.”

Here, here! But being a socialist still doesn’t explain why he seemingly won’t defend America, or why he has an evident tolerance of and kinship toward Islam. This can only be explained by his fervent anti-colonialism. He, like many Muslims, still and will always resent the white western Europeans’ colonization of the Middle East, Africa and the Far East. He is the living embodiment of his anti-colonialist father and others like Reverend Wright. read more

The Radicalization of Syed Farook

by: the Common Constitutionalist

This mass shooting was definitely radical Islamic terrorism. Than can be no question anymore. Whether Syed Farook was radicalized here or abroad is immaterial at this point.
It certainly should become relevant as the investigation continues, but he and his wife did kill in the name of Islam. That’s a fact. It wasn’t Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism or Buddhism.

There are no devout Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, etc. who have been mass murderers and/or terrorists. There is no such thing as a radical Christianist or Jewist.

Even when Christians do go bad, as in the Westboro Baptists, who all would agree are the worse so-called Christians, they don’t kill people in the name of their warped version of Christianity. Islam is the only religion for which radicals kill and terrorize in its name.

And Farook, according to his father was indeed devout. He was even given preferential treatment by being allowed to leave work to pray and then return. That’s quite a feat considering he was working for the separation of church and state California public sector.

What Mosque did he go to? He had evidently been attached to the Islamic Center of Riverside Ca. My research shows no outward signs of radicalization originating from that Mosque. read more

Political Correctness Killed Parisians – And The Left Is Repeating Their Mistake

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So Britain is going to rely on the pitifully ineffective rabble at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), who is evidently screening Syrian Muslim refugees arriving in England this week. England’s Home Secretary has assured Brits that all is well since they are taking in “refugees” direct from camps and the UNHCR does impeccable screening of the “refugees.” In other words, “everything that can be done is being done.”

No, not everything. There is always another option and that is to suspend or outright cancel any movement of “refugees” into the UK. But evidently this is not one of the options they are considering.

And why? Because like liberals in the U.S., liberals in Europe #CareMoreThanWeDo, and will be as brainless as they must to prove it, even to the point of having their own citizens murdered.

But fear not Brits, for officials have your back as they “tighten border controls after it emerged two of the Paris gunmen arrived in Greece posing as refugees from Syria.” Wow – didn’t see that one coming, except that we all predicted just that quite some time ago. It is stunning how stupid the left is that they either couldn’t predict this or simply refuse to conclude the obvious out of fealty to political correctness.

As I said yesterday in my podcast,  this is who these idiot officials are, and ours are no different. They are reactionary. We on the right predict that so-and-so will happen. It happens – the left is surprised and reacts with some temporary or faux fix. This is exactly the case here. We predicted – we guaranteed – at least I did – that allowing your country to be overrun with Muslims who have zero interest in assimilation will end in disaster. read more

Radical Islam – What’s in a Name?

By: the Common Constitutionalist

Does it really matter if an administration won’t call ISIS Islamic?

Does it really make a difference whether they call it terrorism, Islamic terrorism, or just extremism?

What’s in a name? Is it going cause our administration to somehow fight harder, or at all?

21 beheadedWe conservatives constantly rail against political populism and grandstanding. But isn’t that what this is? We’ve heard sayings like “We have to name it” and “We must recognize and put a name to evil.”

Why? What’s in a name? I know I sound like one of those squishy establishment “no labels” weenies, and I frankly don’t care if I do.

But I ask again – what’s the big deal in calling ISIS Islamic. We could call them a tuna fish sandwich or a hippopotamus – what’s the difference?

My point is that everyone on the right is getting hung up on this “Islamic” label. We champion that Reagan called the Soviet Union the evil empire and Bush called out the new axis of evil.

Yeah, those made us all feel good and patriotic and want to chant “USA, USA” and all. I get that and I agree that those declarations can be an important national unifier, but beyond that, they’re just good theater. read more

Terrorism – It’s Just Business

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Last week basketball great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wrote a piece attempting to explain the violent jihad we see all over the globe, and he does a pretty fair job.

Jabbar, a Muslim, claims that the hijacking of Islam, his religion, isn’t about religion at all. It’s about what it’s always about – money and power.

He says that for him “religion – no matter which one – is ultimately about people wanting to live humble, moral lives that create a harmonious community and promote tolerance and friendship with those outside the religious community. Any religious rules should be in service of this goal. The Islam I learned and practice does just that.” read more
