The following is taken from an item in Real Clear Politics.  The post is accompanied by a video that must be seen to be believed.

Howard Stern contributors Sal and Richard traveled to Harlem to interview Obama supporters and ask them why they are voting for Obama.

Stern and his crew ask denizens of Harlem various outrageous questions, including if they believe Obama will find and kill Osama bin Laden; if Romney is a Muslim and if Obama is a Mormon; if Obama made the right choice by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate and if he did it because he is black.

One interviewee was under the impression that 2008 Republican nominee John McCain is also running this time.

“Just trust me, not one person knew that Osama bin Laden was dead,” Stern said during the segment.

“Well, we’re obviously dealing with a whole population that doesn’t listen to the newscasts or read a newspaper,” co-host Robin Quivers said.

People who are this clueless are pawns for manipulation by the most unsavory of politicians.  It gives rise to the question of whether citizenship alone should be enough qualification to vote.


Four of our diplomats were slaughtered inside of the American Embassy in Libya when protesters heavily armed with guns and explosives stormed the compound.  The American flag was torn down inside the embassy in Tunisia and the Al Qaeda flag raised in its place.  Rioting Muslims are burning the American flag in the street outside the American embassy in London.  Newspaper headlines are reporting that riots against America are breaking out around the globe.

Obama sends Jay Carney to explain to the American people that these acts are not against America, it’s just that some Muslims didn’t like a film.  The exact words issued by the White House through their spokesman were:

“This is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims’

Our credit rating was just downgraded again today from AA to AA-.  The unemployment rate has remained over 8% longer than any period since the Great Depression of the 30’s.  So many have dropped completely out of the job market that 88 million Americans do not have a job; that’s one out of every three that is not employed.  And this President thinks he should be re-elected?



Imam Abul Ala Maududi is defined in Wikipedia as a “Muslim revivalist leader and political philosopher, and a major 20th century Islamist thinker”. Here we examine his teaching about Jihad, what it is and how all Muslims have a role.

The sentences are awkward in places because it is a direct translation of Maududi’s writings. We find his teachings to be consistent with that of other Islamic scholars. The emphasis is ours.

Islam is all-encompassing, the Islamic state should not be limited to just the “homeland of Islam”. It is for all the world. ‘Jihad’ should be used to eliminate un-Islamic rule and establish this Islamic state: Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it.

The purpose of Islam is to set up a state on the basis of its own ideology. and programme, regardless of which nation assumes the role of the standard-bearer of Islam or the rule of which nation is undermined in the process of the establishment of an ideological Islamic State. Towards this end, Islam wishes to press into service all forces which can bring about a revolution. Jihad is the term for the use of all these forces. The objective of Jihād’ is to eliminate all un-Islamic states and replace them with an Islamic system of state rule.

Active combat is not the only role in the battle. Not everyone can fight on the front line Jihad is a combination of combat for God and support for those waging combat (Qita’al). Just for one single battle preparations have often to be made for decades on end and the plans deeply laid, and while only some thousands fight in the front line there are behind them millions engaged in various tasks which, though small themselves, contribute directly to the supreme effort.”

According to Islamic belief, all nations will eventually become Muslim lands. Then, and not before, is the time when the world will finally be at peace. It’s a noble goal and the basis upon which an Islamic Muslim makes the claim that Islam is a religion of peace. Some choose a militant role to bring it about; the rest are commanded by Allah to serve in support of them. And that is the reason why moderate Muslims do not stand up in condemnation of terrorist acts the way we in the West expect them to.

Our hope lies not with moderate Muslims but with the reformists. They are there, but they’re a very small minority within the Muslim world. Reformists are considered to be apostates, former Islamists who have left the religion and turned against it, often more reviled than infidels who never were believers in the first place.

In researching for this post I came across the following, which is a very good explanation of the difference between a moderate and a reformist Muslim.

Moderates = most likely a Taqiyya* driven individual who may not commit acts of terror themselves, but will surely defend Islam and deny the problem within.

Reformists = Those who will honestly see the problem within their own, do not defend Islam but attack the evil within and don’t condemn anti-jihadists for pointing out the obvious.

* “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding.” It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions or convictions and is allowed by the Koran when dealing with kuffar (non-believers).

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.

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.

This video has already gone viral but it cannot be posted in too many places so we offer it here. If you have not seen it yet, view it now.

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.
