All you need to know about the recent uprising in Egypt can be found in two words floating innocuously behind the mainstream headlines and pictures of hundreds of thousands of Egyptians in the streets: Muslim Brotherhood.

Here in America, we value freedom, and the idea of different religious factions vying for attention is actually applauded and encouraged, even differing points of view, and the exchange is healthy. But the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is not about freedom from tyrant Hosni Mubarak, it’s about using the momentum of unrest to usher in the bedrock foundation of the Muslim Brotherhood from its inception in 1928: the imposition of strict sharia law for every citizen.

The media would have you believe that Hosni Mubarak, the president of Egypt for three decades, is a maniacal tyrant who crushes dissent and rules the country with an iron fist, and they’d be right on that account. But what the aren’t telling you is that is how it’s done in Middle Eastern, predominantly Muslim countries. The idea of “democracy” as we know it, is totally foreign to them. Democracy is “man’s law” and it totally incompatible with (Islamic) sharia law: “the law of Allah.” In any Islamic country, people with power execute their rule at their will, without regard to individual’s concerns, and they crush dissent, and generate a coalition of disparate groups – through coercion, threats, and violence – that will “go along” with them. And the corrupt government (and they’re ALL corrupt) keeps the country from descending into chaos with this twisted kind of rule. This is the norm in the Middle East. The only “free democracy” in the whole Middle East is Israel.

History is busy repeating itself. In 1979 there was unrest in Iran. The people of Iran, urged on by the Mullah’s, revolted against the tyrannical president Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi (the “Shah of Iran”) for being too pro-Western, and for being tyrannical in his treatment of Iranian citizens who disagreed with his policies. Indeed U.S. President Jimmy Carter denounced the Shah for human rights violations, withdrew support, and gave a green light for Islamic radicals to institute a new government. What we have now in Iran is a hard-core Islamic theocracy, dominated by sharia law, religious police (and even worse atrocities than under the Shah, such as this woman killed by Iran’s morality police (caution: graphic)), dictates from the Mullah’s, and defiance to the world by President Ahmadinejad, who speaks to Islamic audiences that Israel is a disgraceful blot that needs to be wiped off the map. He has also publicly proclaimed a right for Iran to be a nuclear nation (for peaceful purposes, of course). More crazy talk from him here, here, here, here, and here. Ahmadinejad, an Islamic “Shiite,” believes fervently in the return of the Mahdi (the Islamic “messiah” who will bring the world fully into submission under Islam), which will only come after a time of great unrest. Ahmadinejad hopes to bring unrest: infidels be damned to their rightful place in hell, and Muslims caught in the crossfire will go to “paradise.” The threat of “mutually assured destruction” (MAD) that kept the cold war in check is not a deterrent to Islamic fundamentalists (and that IS the Muslim Brotherhood). Thanks to the changes the world allowed in 1979, Iran is now the heart of worldwide unrest. And we’re doing it again.

The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is not about freedom, it’s about ousting a leader – Hosni Mubarak – who they feel is “not Islamic enough.” This is their chance. El Baradei is sympathetic to the cause of the Muslim Brotherhood, if not opportunistic to be used by them to achieve his own power goals. There’s plenty of corruption on both sides. Baradei wants to seize power, and the Muslim Brotherhood will help him with that. The Muslim Brotherhood would like to see Egypt become a sharia state, and Baradei will likely go along with that. This will be a disaster for U.S. interests if this happens. In essence, this shift represents the formation of a second Iran. And we know how well that regime has worked out.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. branch, the Muslim American Society has a noteworthy goal telling its members that,

…all their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” their miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all religions.

It should be noted here “God’s religion” is that of Allah (Islam). And Islam means “submit.”

The Muslim Brotherhood anywhere is not a human right’s protector, nor is it interested in “freedom” and “democracy.” The Muslim Brotherhood’s has spawned Al Qaeda (worldwide), Hamas in Palestine (who’s charter calls for the destruction of Israel), and their slogan is, “Allah is our objective. The Prophet [Mohammed] is our leader.  Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

And if all of this is not enough, Iran recently weighed in with it’ support, saying the Egyptian revolt is the start of an Islamic revolution in the Middle East.

What is happening in Egypt is pivitol. Everywhere Islam takes hold, human rights are flushed. Mubarak is bad. Sharia is worse. The Muslim Brotherhood is the purveyor of this change.

BJ Shay is the host of the morning radio show on KISW 99.9 FM in Seattle. There’s usually a good deal of topical talk on the show on “The Rock.” This morning’s brief topic at 7:30am had to do with Shea’s opinions on Tea Party Nation (website) founder Judson Phillips comments that congressman Keith Ellison should be retired because he’s a Muslim.

Shea is clearly no partaker of any religion, and stated this morning he doesn’t mind if anyone practices their own religion as long as they “keep it to themselves.” Of course, he thought it ridiculous that someone would consider ousting a congressman because he’s a Muslim.

This speaks VOLUMES of Shay’s ignorance.

He also said he thinks Islam is just like Christianity, which turns UP the volume on that ignorance. He should watch the genius Swedish video  “Three Things About Islam” so he can at least sound like he knows a LITTLE about Islam.

USA Today piled on about this subject, bringing the recent firing of NPR’s Juan Williams into it, and suggesting that Islamophobia is on par with homophobia. They’re not: gays don’t usually threaten harm (or death) if you if you say you’re “uncomfortable” with them. Islam does. Gays don’t have a codified religious law that is supposed to govern everything they do. Islam does (sharia). Gay literature doesn’t say, “slay the infidels wherever you find them.” Islam does (Qur’an 9:5).

A phobia is an irrational fear. We have a legitimate fear from an ideology that has NO “live and let live” mentality, and in fact is bent on forcing the world through coercion, subversion (creeping sharia), intimidation (CAIR lawsuits, Ground Zero Mosque), or threats of harm or death to succumb to Islam. Islam MEANS “submit.” Islamic sharia law – in the minds of all Muslims: “god’s law” – is incompatible with freedom and democracy.

The Qur’an says, “Allah is not bound by any contract or treaty with non-Muslims, nor is His Apostle.” (9:3). Think of how that plays out on an international level, with all the apologizing and pandering President Obama does in Muslim nations. Do you think any Muslim is bound in his own mind when he says, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States.”

Amir Taheri sums up the Muslim mindset beautifully in this GREAT article in the Iranian Press Service:

“To say that Islam is incompatible with democracy should not be seen as a disparagement of Islam. On the contrary, many Muslims would see it as a compliment because they sincerely believe that their idea of rule by God is superior to that of rule by men, which is democracy”.

There is no “equality” in Islam; and non-Muslims are not just “neutral unbelievers,” they are “inferior.” Christianity – the religion of most Americans – upholds the dignity of EVERY person, which is why you see Americans coming to the rescue of nations subject to national disasters (even in HUGE Muslim population countries like Indonesia). The only way a Muslim can rightly represent free people as a congressman is to discard sharia, that is, to discard the codification of “god’s law” in favor of respecting the laws of this nation. As you can imagine, any practicing Muslim would not do this; It’s tantamount to discarding Islam. So really, the only Muslim fit for upholding the constitution of the United States is a MINO: a “Muslim In Name Only.” In other words: a non-Muslim.

And we just keep letting them do it…

On the GLOBAL front:

Iranian Minister: Israel’s Destruction Is Foretold in the Koran…

We just simply MUST allow these people to have nuclear material for peaceful purposes.

United Kingdom: Islamic Hate Preacher Gets Court Victory

Because we mustn’t judge now, right?

Fox guarding henhouse: Pakistan becomes chair of IAEA board (via JihadWatch)

Pakistan – a “radical” Islamic country that just happens to have nuclear weapons – will now be the head of the UN agency that oversees nukes around the world.

Insult on Islam: Government will Not Keep Quiet

From our “Stop Saying Islam is Violent or We’ll Kill You” or “Speak Up And be Killed” file (Malasia):

Muslims Attack Christian Church in Pakistan: Burn Bibles

… this is retaliation for the Florida Qur’an’s that DIDN’T get burned, but of course, no one around the world has to fear the retaliation of Christians, because Christianity really IS a religion of peace…

And …. On the LOCAL front (sort of):

Radical Islam gets the better of free speech (right here in the US)

A Minneapolis / St. Paul writer wonders why no one in the press is coming to the defense of a Seattle cartoonist when she has to go into hiding because her life is threatened by members of the “the religion of peace.

What can you do? Stand up against ANY form of Sharia law in our land. Insist that your representatives take a REAL stand on national security (including restrictions of Muslim immigration), and tell everyone you know the truth: www.HaltTerrorism.com is a great place to start.

Obama’s Islamic advisor (Dahlia Mogahed) no doubt has told him that Islam is a “religion of peace” and all of Iranian president Ahmadinejad’s bravado about a new, previously untold underground uranium enrichment plant is just a bunch of saber rattling to gain attention. I’m sure Obama’s also been told that the recent test of Iran’s Sahib-3 missiles with 1,200 mile range (enough to strike Israel) is just a routine test.

Obama – and most liberals – desperately want to believe that these people are civilized, and that we can talk them out of their desire to “wipe Israel off the map” by just understaaaanding them. By being seeensitive to their desires, we can cajole them into working hand in hand with the rest of the world. Unicorns and rainbows will herald a new era of peace because we taaaalked with the maniacal dictators, and they took our message to heart and really believed us when we showed them through our humble apologies and disarming ourselves and removing missile defenses from our (former) allies. They will beat their swords into plowshares, and Ahamadinejad and Netenyahoo will sing Kum By Yah together.

Answer this question:

When in all of recorded history has a maniacal dictator ever put down his weapons and layed down his armies because someone talked him into acting peacefully?

You already know the answer: It has never happened. Hitler. Pol Pot. Hirohito. Keep going. A weak America doesn’t make dictators more willing to work with us, it makes them more willing to attack us and crush our allies us by any means while they have the opportunity.

Ahmadinejad strongly adheres to the Shiite belief that the return of the Mahdi will restore peace rid the world of error, injustice, and tyranny (go figure!). That is great, until you understand that the Mahdi will only return after “the world is washed in blood” – World War III – and Ahmadinejad wants that!

The left desperately doesn’t want to believe this truth: WWIII accomplishes the Shiite goal of “the return of the Mahdi.” Millions of Muslims believe this with excitement, including Iranian president Ahmadinejad. And collateral damage (his own people, and other warriors for Islam), and “innocents” (that’s probably where you would put yourself) don’t matter. In his mind, death brings righteous Muslims into paradise quicker, infidels get their right place in hell, and praise Allah, the Mahdi is almost here!

Check this video, especially “hasten the return of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi” (at :46, right out of the maniacal dictators mouth at the UN last week).

There are only two groups of people with Islam. The first is dar al-Islam (the “house of Islam”). Those who have submitted to Islam (and “Islam” means “submit”) are in that category. If you’re reading this, chances are you are not in it. There is only one issue on the table for Ahmadinejad: “will you submit fully to Islam, and institute shariah law in place of democracy?” If the answer is “no” (and it is), then we live in dar al-harb (the house of war), whether you like it or not, and whether you agree with it or not. You don’t even have to do anything to make them angry: you are a filthy plague on this earth by your very existence, and those who are within Islam (“his pure household and his noble companions” per Ahmadinejad’s own voice above) have a duty to cleanse the world. Remember, Osama Bin Laden declared war on the West, and fundamentalist Islamists are at war with you, and what are you going to do about it? If you’re not going to convert to Islam and join the jihad against the infidels, then you are the enemy.

Fundamentalist Muslims don’t want to talk,

they want Islam to prevail at any cost.

(and you’re probably getting in the way of that by breathing).

There are peaceful Muslims, but there is no peaceful Islam.

As one blogger put it: “Obama’s unclenched fist policy is failing miserably.”

  • Let Obama know that you want him to stand firm against Islam’s war against the world.
  • Complete list of congress’ email and fax numbers here.
  • Another “contact congress” option is here.
  • Contact your representatives to put pressure on him to protect us and our interests from these religious warriors.

Hey, this is only from the last couple days. I could do this every other day and never run out of fresh quotes!! Do you have any from your own neck of the woods? – PR

 

“I sincerely hope that when the president goes in for his annual check-up, the doctors at Bethesda will do a brain scan. Surely something must be terribly wrong with a man who seems to be far more concerned with a Jew building a house in Israel than with Muslims building a nuclear bomb in Iran.” — Burt Prelutsky

 

F— Canada Day” former Canadian Arab Federation exec Omar Shaban on his Facebook page. He’s merely reflecting the Islamic standard known worldwide to Muslims that “Islam transcends nationality.” Traditional Islam teaches that Muslims should respect only their allegiance to the umma (the Islamic community of the world), not to the nation-state in which they live.

 

“The question that arises out of the overwhelmingly angry reaction to Sarkozy’s view is whether anything associated with the religion of Islam is beyond intense scrutiny and interrogation”  Sentletse Diakanyo in an update on this story. “Burka violates women’s right to dignity,” in the Mail & Guardian Online, July 1

 

“Muslims went out in the streets, dancing and chanting ‘Come to Jihad’ and the ‘Cross is the enemy of God’, with the security forces chanting along with them!”  Article by by Elizabeth Kendal for ASSIST News Service, July 1 … Welcome to Egypt.

 

“We don’t want churches on our street. Today we are going to burn the church, and if you continue we are going to burn your house also.” — Flier dropped at the door of a Christian leader in Zanzibar, June 28, 2009. Ahh, feel the love and tolerance of all faiths!

 

And our last bastion of complete ignorance:

“And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.” — Barack Obama, Cairo, June 4, 2009

 

PR sez: bulsh. Let them prove it with their actions (and that isn’t going to happen).

Check this BBC video about some of the 500 jihadists released from Guantanamo Bay. They have the ignorance to use the term “successfully rehabilitated” half way through the clip. They’re either blissfully ignorant, or willfully wussified, because not-so-Great Britain has their own Muslim problems right in their own backyard, and non-Muslim British citizens know it! So who are they trying to convince here….

 

 

And when are U.S. troops going to get fed up with mollycoddling these avowed haters of all that is non-Muslim, and go postal on them? Probably not while Commander In Chief Obama is busy coddling an evil regime like Iran, and apologizing to the world for our misdeeds (and isn’t that hysterical considering the threats and a very real death toll that Islam propagates daily).  (Thanks to Weasel Zippers for these clips). This is Neda Soltan (shot in the streets of Iran), who just wants her vote to count. (CAUTION: extremely graphic) (and keep in mind this “graphic” stuff happens frequently under Islamic rule. Do you still want to be tolerant of this)?

Right click here (to “open in a new window”): http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=0db_1245519048

Your own Muslim neighbors – even if they are not violent – desire that Islam (and Sharia law) would rule the United States. We can’t keep pretending this stuff doesn’t exist, or the threat is not that important, or that we just don’t understaaaaand them (one Catholic cardinal – who doesn’t understaaaaand Islam – proclaimed recently). I can see evil by it’s consistent deeds as supported hundreds of times from Islam’s holy writings, can you? Evil must be resisted; it will not be placated.
