Rules for Radicals Tactical Rule #4 “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

Obviously, our rule in this instance is freedom of religion.

In Act II of his plan, Alinsky also states the job of a community organizer is to agitate. He says flat-out in the book, – a good community organizer is a community agitator. Get the people riled up, then, use the turmoil to your advantage.


Certainly, the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is no follower of Saul Alinsky. He doesn’t need to be in order to know and employ the principles and tactics. Alinsky didn’t invent them; he simply put them together in clear and cohesive form. Knowledge of Alinsky’s teachings gives an observer great insight into the motivation behind the actions of anyone who strives to change our government or our way of life.

The Imam has chosen controversy. He has no interest in pleasing the crowd. He wants to stir up the crowd. He seeks a victory for Islam and there can be no victory if there is no battle to be fought. Appeals to his “sensitivity” are naïve in the extreme, almost silly. Lower Manhattan is not a haven of Muslims; it is a symbol of free market America. Building a 100 million dollar monumental Mosque in that location, rather than close to a Muslim population, makes no religious sense at all. But as we have said before, it is a brilliant move for the advancement of Islam.

NOTE: We had this article written, all but the editing, when we discovered the video by U.K. personality Pat Condell. We are not a fan of the man but must give the devil his due. So often it seems, those on the outside looking in have a clearer view than those who are within.


Understanding Islam

One of the comments often heard about the building of an Islamic mosque at ground zero goes something like this, “I think they have a right to build it there, but is it wise for them to do so?” Let me tell you, it’s not just wise, it’s brilliant!

What’s missing from the debate over the Mosque is a clear understanding of Islam and the muslim religion of Mohamedism. There is a good reason why the Islamic sponsors of the Mosque have chosen the name Cordoba House, why they want to build it where they do, and why they want to have a dedication ceremony on Sept 11th. At Random Thots we think it is vitally important to have a basic knowledge of some of the history and core beliefs within the muslim world. For many years there was no need, there is now.

Islam is more than a religion. It is the law of the land, it is territorial, it is Jihad, it is a nation. It is a nation without borders, not because its location is not defined but because its location is limitless. It encompasses the entire world. Other religions recognize religion and government as two different things, no matter how closely tied they may be. In Islam they are one and the same.

The goal of Islam is the establishment of the religion/government of Mohamedism worldwide. The first concern is to purify the Holy Land (all of the Mid-East) of kuffa (non-believers) then to rule the world beyond. Once that has come to pass, peace will prevail throughout, and not before. This is the peace Islam so earnestly seeks. Jihad is the struggle to complete the work that will bring about that time of peace. Christians and Jews also envision a time when the world will be at peace, but believe there is nothing they can do to determine or hasten the time.

Islam divides the world into two realms. dar al Islam (the world of submission to and acceptance of Allah) and dar al Harb (the world of war). To an Islamist you are either a believer or an abject enemy, an enemy of God and man and standing in the way of peace.

Jihad in dar al Harb, the realm of war, is fought on two fronts, both well understood in the muslim world. The first is the militant front, the flying of planes into the WTC towers, bombing a train in Spain to swing an election, and bombings like those in Bali and London. These are the hot heads, lesser in number but louder in voice than the majority. For the vast majority of devout muslims violence is not their way. Nevertheless, the militants are doing God’s work, praise be to Allah.

The second front of the jihad in the realm of war is the exhortation to follow the command of diaspora. Go into the lands of the kuffa and populate but do not assimilate. Conform and wait, but be not one of them for they are your enemy. Mohamed preached it in the 15th century. The concept later became known as that of the Fifth Column. The term was first used by Emilio Mola, a Nationalist General during the 1936–39 Spanish Civil War. As his army approached Madrid, there was concern that the four columns of his forces would not be sufficient to take the city. He said, not to worry, his troops were supported by a “fifth column”, a column of his followers inside the city.

Before we put this all together and relate it to the Mosque in Manhattan there is one more thing to cover. It’s a bit of history. Cordoba, a city in the southern region of Spain, was the first European city conquered by the Muslim Army. It remained under Muslim control for more than 700 years until the advancing Crusades led to its being returned to Christian governance. The name Cordoba has enormous significance in the Muslim world. It symbolizes the peak of their power as well as a source of great resentment.

Symbolism is as much a part of battle as guns and cannons. Our National Anthem is the Star Spangled Banner. The raising of the American flag on the Island of Iwo Jima is the powerful symbol of our WW II victory in the Pacific. The Muslim world is watching. The erection of Cordoba House in the shadow of Ground Zero will stand as an Iwo Jima to the Muslim world.

Some American’s will see the approval for the building of the Mosque as a concession to religious freedom, others will view it as an insult to those who died. A few may even be fooled into believing the claim that it is an outreach from the Islamic community seeking better “understanding”. But there will be no division of thought in the Muslim world as to what it signifies.

So you see, to build it some distance away and dedicate it on whatever day it is completed would turn a monument to Islamic progress into a conciliatory defeat. If it comes to that, and we don’t believe it will, it will not be named Cordoba House.

Week ending August 20, 2010

Harry Reid comes out against the Mosque’s being built at ground zero.
What’s next? Will he run as a Tea Party candidate?

French police fine male tourists for appearing shirtless in public.
In France?? How can this be? The report specifies “tourists”. Does that mean residents are exempt from the $48 “show-your-abs” fee? Or could it be that the fee simply doesn’t apply because French men are too discreet (or embarrassed) to show off their chests in the first place?

Dr Laura decides to call it quits.
After listening to the complete audio I must say she owes a big apology to the caller. You can find the complete audio at Media Matters on this page.

Unemployment claims climbed to a nine-month high, 500,000 unemployed.
This time there were no anomalies such as was the case when the census workers were released. It is FDR all over again.

Here is a list of headlines all seen today.

Freedom’s Lighthouse reports

The Drudge Report is leading this morning with the headline, “Shock Poll: 1 out of 4 Think Obama Muslim.” They link to a Time article that says 24% believe Obama to be a Muslim:

Considering his muslim roots, his statement that America is a muslim country, his de facto denial of Islamic terrorism and the sternness of his admonishment to Americans opposed to the infamous mosque, I ask, where is the shock in a poll that reveals that 24% believe Obama is a muslim?

From Time Magazine

The survey also revealed that many Americans harbor lingering animosity toward Muslims. Twenty-eight percent of voters do not believe Muslims should be eligible to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Nearly one third of the country thinks adherents of Islam should be barred from running for President — slightly higher than the 24% who mistakenly believe that the current occupant of the Oval Office is himself a Muslim. In all, just 47% of respondents believe Obama is a Christian; 24% declined to respond to the question or said they were unsure, and 5% believe he is neither Christian nor Muslim.

Mistakenly believe? Is that a fact? Does Time know something the rest of us do not? Put me in the 5%, at least for now. But I will not declare the 24% “mistaken” for they could be  right.

Ok, citizens, you’ve had your lecture, now toe the line! With a tightness of lip and bit of emotion in his voice your President has commanded you to respect all Muslims without distinction, including those who laud the killing of your sons, your daughters, your wives and your husbands on that fateful September day. He says that is the American way.

Mr. Obama, my response is a fervent as your command. I do not share your Muslim roots, Mr. Obama, but I do have something you don’t. I have on my desk my World Trade Center photo ID. I was not in the building that day but the horror is real to me. When you have seen people falling, story by story to their ugly deaths you lose all will to honor the technically legal rights of those who in turn, honor the Muslims who slit the throats of the pilots and flew the planes into the towers.

Mr. Obama, let me tell you a story, a true story. From an upper floor, above where the first plane hit, a young woman of Oriental descent phoned her mother. Upon conveying the agony of unbearable heat, her mother advised she put modesty aside and remove her blouse. I tried, the daughter replied, but I can’t. It’s melted into my skin. That young woman died that day. By what moral authority do you ask us to look the other way. That is but one story, I’m sure there are more.

I ask you, Mr. Obama, what do you know of the American way? You who wept and found your calling in the pew of the “God Damn America” church of Black Liberation Theology. Nothing but nothing, is more antithetical to the American way than the Marxist teachings of Liberation Theology.

We chose you for our leader. But you who promised so much have given so little. You promised to heal, then you salted our wounds. The greatest irony of all is that your Presidency may turn out to be the second worst thing for which America has only herself to blame. The first was slavery.
