Open Letter by Prominent Muslims to the Caliph Debunked

The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Fiqh Council of North America wrote an open letter signed by over a 100 prominent Muslims, addressed to the Islamic State’s Caliph Ibrahim, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, explaining how the PhD holder in Islamic Studies is misunderstanding Islam. Today, Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch debunks the document.



Michael Coren and Robert Spencer discuss the claims that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam.

Hamas-linked CAIR and the Fiqh Council and all the signers of this Open Letter really do oppose the Islamic State. But they don’t oppose it because it is transgressing against the commands of what they believe to be a Religion of Peace. They oppose it because they want to establish a caliphate under the auspices of or led by the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Islamic State constitutes competition. This is clear from their sly endorsements in this document of jihad, the Sharia, and the concept of the caliphate. It begins with an “Executive Summary” which is then filled out in greater detail. I will intersperse commentary below, first in general terms on the Executive Summary, and then taking up the arguments on each point in detail.

Retired Generals: Obama's War Plan Like Vietnam

ISIS has joint its conquered territories in Syria and Iraq together (maps) in a new Caliphate simply named the Islamic State, or IS. IS is demanding that all Sunnis pledge allegiance to the Caliph, al Baghdadi. After the genocides on Christians and Yazidi Kurds, and three hostages were publicly beheaded, the world is ready to strike back at Mordor.

UPDATE: There's better news from Syrian Kurdistan. Obama's top brass have shredded his war plan against the Islamic State; Obama is about to tell the UN he wants a global travel ban for Jihadists, assuring radicals will turn against their home countries; Islamic State has got Lebanon and Egypt in the crosshairs. And cries about dying babies has already started. Let's hope people are able to withstand sentimental anti war propaganda that hands a moral victory to the enemy - the Islamic State - as if that was possible in a rational world!

Postmortem on Operation Protective Edge in Gaza

Three Israeli teens were abducted and killed by Palestinians. After some 95 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, the Government of Bibi Netanyahu launched Operation Protective Edge. Peace negotiations have started, but it's impossible for the Palestinians to ever stop hostilities: the destruction of Israel  is their psychological reason of being. 



Aug 11, 2014 At United West, Geert Wilders, unlike many spineless politicians, stands proudly with Israel and boldly against Hamas and Islamic jihad worldwide. 

UPDATE: While the world's media has been blaming Israel for the death of Gazan civilians during Operation Protective Edge, this correspondent decided to speak with Gazans themselves to hear what they had to say. They spoke of Hamas atrocities and war crimes implicating Hamas in the civilian deaths of its own people. Although Gazans, fearful of Hamas's revenge against them, were afraid to speak to the media, friends in the West Bank offered introductions to relatives in Gaza. One, a renowned Gazan academic, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that as soon as someone talked to a Western journalist, he was immediately questioned by Hamas and accused of "communicating with the Mossad". "Hamas makes sure that the average Gazan will not talk to Western journalists -- or actually any journalists at all," he said (...) (Source)

Jihad Isn't Crime; It's a Special Kind of World War

The neglected problems with the Islamic State are starting to overwhelm the system. We haven't begun to tackle the issue, since we are trying to evade awareness. We have  a problem on our hands that transcends the state, borders, and the law. In other words, this isn't crime, we're in a special kind of world war, a Jihad.


British medical student calling herself Mujahidah Bint Usama, 21, posted this image online of her holding a severed head while two children look on. Only the censored picture has been made available by MailOnline.

Postmodern man does not have the ability to think outside the parameters of the prevailing paradigm. We think in concepts as countries, passports and legislation. But those concepts are of another order that isn't useful to us here. Cultures and ideas transcend borders. If we understand how fast a virus like ebola is able to spread (source), we may be able to comprehend what happens to ideas that flash across continents with the speed of the Internet.

Iran's Happy People Sentenced to 91 Lashes

UPDATE:



Interview With a Former IS Jihadist

The House has affirmed Obama's long - covertly - implemented plan to arm the 'moderate' (define!) Syrian rebels. The following is an interview with a man who thought he'd joined the FSA, but instead found himself a member of the Islamic State.

"The CIA also believes that its previous assignment to accomplish [arming rebels] was basically a fool’s errand"  

Islamic State (IS) member "Sherko Omer" would now be a dead jihadist hadn’t he surrendered to the pro-Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in northeast Syria earlier this year. Journalist Rozh Ahmad met him to learn more about the experience. In this interview "Omer" explains how he left his hometown in Iraqi Kurdistan to join the Syrian opposition and eventually became an IS member, what he witnessed and the reasons for which he risked his life to exit the extremist Islamic organisation. "Sherko Omer" is a pseudonym. His real identity has been kept secret for security reasons. The views expressed are his own.

Muslim Show: Alone or the Group? (Cartoon)

Individualism is a threat to Islam. The community of the faithful has a name: the Ummah. Islam would not be able to keep it together without social pressure. The tribe prevents individuals from wandering off the village grounds under threat of death and worse. This cartoon tells the story.


Islam's anti individualism at a glance. This is one of the reasons Islam is entirely antithetical to Liberty and Western liberal democracy which is oriented on the sovereignty of the individual. H/t @BasimaFaysal

Islam At the Crossroads: War or Peace?

Islam stands at a crossroads. The Islamic State presents Muslims with an opportunity to put Islam on a peaceful footing, denounce Jihad, establishing the long awaited Reformation. The trend however is going the other way. Silent consent. They have no choice.



Sep 2, 2014: Brother Rachid addresses President Obama about the Islamic State and Islam; he explains how IS is imitating the prophet Muhammed in every detail. The Islamic State represents Islam.

Amidst all the carnage caused by Al Qaeda and Islamic State related terrorist groups, Muslims actually have the unique opportunity to cleanse their religion of all the connotations and associations with violence and cruelty. All they have to do is denounce the Islamic State and forsake the legitimacy of Jihad as a path to further the causes of the world Caliphate. The shoe however appears to be on the other foot.

The first article presents an excellent analysis of the political and ideological situation. The second article is interesting from the historical perspective.

  • "The Jihad against America and How to End It"

by Craig Biddle 
While Islamic terrorist groups multiply and expand throughout the Middle East—beheading U.S. citizens, attacking Israelis, crucifying Christians, raping children, seizing commercial jetliners, and promising Americans, “see you in New York”—now is a good time to recount the essential nature of the problem with respect to America and to specify what the United States should do about it. (Source

European Union Bans Incorrect Kitchen Appliances

The European Union is a postmodern monstrosity oriented towards top down power politics, rules and regulations, collectivism, and ever expanding statism. After the wine lakes and EU compliant cucumbers, the kitchen tyranny.
