Hello all you Vets in the Fight, this is David Miller, with your weekly Special Operations Speaks, Vets in the Fight SITREP.
Full disclosure: We here at Special Operations Speaks / Vets in the Fight® are not subject matter experts in Islam, nor do we claim to be. But many veterans, including us, throughout the services have had experience with the islamic threat most have not. Still, we rely on vetted sources, such as Dr. Bill Warner of politicalislam.comand Robert Spencer of jihadwatch.com, among others.
So then, what, exactly, is Islam? A good question and few Americans know the answer. Many believe that It’s one of the world’s major religions, a religion of peace. George W. Bush even perpetrated this misunderstanding after 9/11. But Islam is not defined by anyone’s opinion, but by the Quran (the revelation of Allah to Muhammad), Hadith (the traditions of Muhammad) and the Sira (Muhammad’s biography). The latter two capture the words and actions of Muhammad: the Sunna. All three must be understood as the totality of Islam. Only then can we understand what Islam is: primarily an ideology that encompasses politics, diplomacy, history, philosophy, religion and culture. According to this trilogy of texts, Muhammad is seen as the divinely inspired, ideal man and Islam is the ideal path for all humanity.
We must also understand the doctrine of abrogation. The earlier, more peaceful Koranic passages are superseded and made null and void (abrogated), by the later, more bellicose passages which gives us insight into the expansionary, military-political ideology that is Islam, especially in the terror filled times we live in
What, then, is terror?
Merriam-Webster has several definitions, but the one that would seem most relevant is this one:
[V]iolent or destructive acts (such as bombing) committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands. We have grown accustomed to this definition of terror. Who can blame us? Over the past thirty days alone, there have been 111 Islamic Jihadist attacks in twenty-three countries, killing 540 people and injuring another 507. Since 9/11 Islamic terrorists have carried out almost 35.000 attacks worldwide. These numbers are probably low due to non-reporting of some events. (Source: thereligionofpeace.com).
These attacks are horrible and chilling.
They have caused many thousands to grieve the loss of loved ones, millions to change lifestyles, financial losses in the billions and governments to react; such as creating the Department of Homeland Security, home to roughly 230.000 employees! But, though it may sound crass, these attacks pale in comparison to a more malignant form of jihad: Hizra. Since Muhammad’s journey to Mecca, Islam has determined that nothing less than domination over the entire world is satisfactory. From the Hadith, “ I charge you with five of what Allah has charged me with: to assemble, to listen, to obey, to immigrate and to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah”.
Muslims leave the land of their birth to fight, jihad of the sword and to emigrate, the Jihad of immigration, to Europe and America especially. The PEW forum has projected that Muslim populations around the world will grow by 25% by 2030. In the US the population projections show the number of Muslims will grow to approximately 6.2m in 2030. A 140% increase since 2010. By 2050 the Muslim population here is projected to be 8.1m..
Hijra is not haphazard.
In fact, we could think of Muslim immigration as a colonizationof America, and they are doing it with our government’s help! Many immigrants do come to America for a better life, to becomeAmericans. But, by and large, Muslims are different. They are following the doctrine of immigration and do not assimilate. In fact, if pressed, many would confess a deep hatred for the West and by Hijra they will fundamentally change America. Sound familiar?
The first trickle of the deluge has begun with Muslims, swearing allegiance to Allah, being sworn in to National political office. As the Muslim population grows, so does their influence from local school boards to the US House and Senate. Sharia will, if not stopped, become the law abrogating our own Constitution. We must act now or our future generations may very well live as subjugated Dhimmi. Western civilization … the most successful in history … is threatened.
