THE WAR ON TERROR – AN OPEN LETTER
Earlier today I did something I had not done in a long while. I consented to doing an interview on Islam – this one on WABC in New York. While I have done one thousand five hundred hours of national and regional talk radio interviews and debates on the direct connection between fundamental Islam and terrorism, I had retired from doing more because it became clear to me that the hosts and I were speaking a different language and using an entirely different filter to discern right and wrong.
Today was no exception. So, to help remedy that problem, I have composed this Open Letter.
WHAT IS A WAR ON TERROR?
Let’s begin with the most ignorant and injurious slogan: "the war on terror." It is ignorant because it is senseless and it is injurious because it camouflages our actual enemy, making us more vulnerable.
Terrorism is a tactic, not a foe. To declare war on terror is akin to saying that World War II should have been fought to rid the world of naval armadas and blitzkrieg. If we had focused our energies on killing every kamikaze suicide bomber and every S.S. terrorist, the political and religious regimes that manufactured them, unchecked, would have produced far more of them far faster than we could have killed them.
Terrorism is a common tactic. Sherman used terror when he marched to the sea, making war intolerable for the South. America used terror when we fire-bombed German and Japanese cities, making support for the war wane.
According to the Islamic Hadith and Qur’an, Muhammed was a terrorist – having established Islam through a series of armed raids against civilians. The most brutal and unjustified were against the Jewish communities of Qurayza and Khaybar. You can read what the Islamic scriptures have to say about them in the "Islam’s Holocaust" and "Blood and Booty" chapters of Prophet of Doom.
The simple fact is that all wars are the result of religion politics, or both. The current war is no exception. It is against a poligious (political-religious) doctrine called Islam.
For most of man’s history, religion and politics have been inseparable. Cleric and king united to control and fleece the people. Islam is the best example – an equivalent blend of religion and politics. But let us not forget Communism and Nazism, the religions of man. They promote collectivism and control under the guise of secular humanism. These poligious doctrines caused the murder of over 100,000,000 people in the 30 years between 1917 and 1947. Today, the biggest killer is Islam. Over 90% of today’s wars and terrorist acts are directly attributable to Muhammad’s legacy. If only 20% of Muslims are fundamentalists and thus Jihadists, it means that they are 2000% more lethal than the rest of us. Ought we not examine the religion that makes them that way?
In its first one hundred years, a river of blood flowed from Muhammad’s feet. His religion turned a once peaceful and self-reliant people violent and dependant. In the 3,000 years of recorded history between 2500 B.C.E. to 500 C.E. there isn’t a single incident in all of recorded history of Arabs leaving Arabia to conquer or plunder anyone. Then Muhammad invented a religion based upon jihad – holy war and plunder. He called it Islam – submission. Muhammad personally led 75 terrorist raids, all against civilians and exclusively for the purpose of stealing booty and gaining power and control. Within a year of his death, his successor led the War of Compulsion and forever robbed Arabia of any semblance of freedom. In the next ten years, without any provocation, the first Muslims attacked and conquered civilians in Israel, Syria, Egypt, Yemen and Turkey. Within its first 100 years, Islamic terrorists had ravaged and plundered every civilization from Spain to India. What changed these people if it was not Islam?
While Islam continued to be tyrannical, brutal and bloody, in the interest of time, I’m going to jump ahead to the obvious: Islam was solely responsible for causing Muslims to fly planes into our buildings. The suicide bombers not only used Islam’s signature tactic, they confessed to the crime leaving video taped recitals from the Qur’an behind and by shouting "Allah Akbar" – Allah is greatest, as they perpetrated their attack. Moreover, like the Jihadists who are killing us in Iraq, they all came out of mosques.
In the case of the second World Trade Center bombing, the plan was conceived by, and the participants were recruited from, the al-Kod mosque in Hamburg, Germany – not Kabul, Afghanistan. And the first World Trade Center bombing was masterminded by Sheik Ar-Rahman – a man named after Muhammad’s first god. The blind sheik is the world’s foremost authority on the Qur’an – having served as the senior professor of Qur’anic studies at Islam’s premier university, Al-Azhar in Cairo – before he was exiled for having assassinated Anwar Sadat. If Islam is peaceful, that’s hard to explain.
A nation that lashes out against a tactic rather than the actual enemy, the religious and/or political doctrine motivating the assault, is destined to lose. Until Americans come to understand who the terrorists are (good Muslims) and why they (Islamists) kill, we have no chance of protecting ourselves from them. They will destroy our largest cities with nuclear or biological weapons and we will lose all we hold dear as a result.
