Joe Lieberman Spews Excrement!

An email from Newsmax contained this link Lieberman Slams Obama on Radical Islam Silence which contained a few provocative quotes but no link to the source. They did mention that their source was an op ed piece at the Wall Street Journal. Google came to my rescue.

Throughout this blog post, blue, underlined text is hyperlinked to a source document. Clicking any link will open the source in a new window. Through some of those links you can gain access to the Qur'an & hadith which form the core of Islam.

Who's the Enemy in the War on Terror?

I do not know who supplied the head & sub head, but I will begin my criticism there because the head & sub head contain egregious deceptions which deserve to be exposed.

"War on Terror" implies that terror is the enemy. In reality, terror is a psychological and physiological state in which the mind and body are so agitated that immediate effective defense becomes impossible. The heart races and palpitates, the hands and knees shake, and the mind is filled with a forboding of doom and despair. Flight takes precedence to fight when terror reigns.

Terror is a condition, instilling terror is an enemy tactic. Identify the entity which uses that tactic and you have identified the enemy. I am about to perform an act most bloggers, commentators, news media and politicians will not do. I am about to bore you with the most vital facts which will enable you to identify the enemy who is waging war against us.

The following quotation is from the bottom of page 58 of The Qur'anic Concept of War, a strategic training manual written by Brig. S.K. Malik for the army of Pakistan.

Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into
the opponenfs heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet
and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is me decinbn we wish to impose upon him.

Inflicting terror is both a means and an end which makes victory possible. No, Pakistan is not the enemy; don't jump to conclusions. Look at the title of the book. What is the origin of the tactical use of terror? If you answered "the Qur'an", you are beginning to catch on. If not, I suggest that you take a remedial reading course to improve your comprehension skills.

The Qur'an is the scripture of Islam, its guide to all aspects of life including warfare. Allah said that he would cast terror into the hearts of disbelievers. That statement is found in 3:151 and 8:12. In the latter verse, he told the angels and the Muslims what to do to cast terror. In 8:57, he commanded Muslims to inflict a severe defeat on their victims in order to affect the psychology of future victims; to terrify them. In 8:60, he commanded the Muslims to maximize the power of their army so as to terrify their enemies.

Allah said that he cast terror, resulting in victory for the Muslims. In 33:26-27, we learn that Allah's casting of terror resulted in the killing of the men of one tribe and the enslavement of their widows and orphans. It also resulted in the seizeure of their real and personal property. In 59:2 we learn that casting terror resulted in the defeat of another tribe who destroyed their own homes. At the conclusion of the latter verse, we find something special. "Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see)." As hinted in 8:57, Allah is setting up the destruction of one set of victims as an example to instill terror in future victims.

The Qur'anic sanctification of terrorism might be dismissed as metaphorical or apocryphal but for the ample confirmations found in hadith, the oral traditions of Moe's companions on the battlefield. Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 lists five special gifts that distinguish Moe from other Prophets. The first of those five items is most instructive: "Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey.". Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220 tells us how Moe was made victorious: "...I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), ...".

The tactic of casting terror is sanctified by the Qur'an and exemplifed by hadith. Now we know who owns it: Islam. That is standard, off the shelf, orthdox, mainstream Islam, not some imaginary "radical", "extremist" or "fundamentalist" sub set or offshoot.

Perpetual warfare is another sacrament of Islam, mandated by 2:216 and commanded in 8:39, 9:29 and 9:123. The imperative is confirmed in Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387. The perpetual duration of jihad is confirmed in Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2526.

Attacks on us, threatened and performed by Muslims, flow directly from the venomous verses of the Qur'an & Hadith. The identity of the enemy is no mystery; it is Islam.

The U.S. is at war with violent Islamist extremism, and the Obama administration does moderate Muslims no favor by refusing to recognize this.

The sub head, reproduced above, contains two egregious lies, disguised by code words: "violent Islamist extremism" & "moderate Muslims". I already proved the fact that offensive jihad using terrorism as a tactic is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam as Moe preached and practiced it. Muslims who reject the sacrament of offensive jihad are not moderates, they are hypocrites. That term is used in 18 of the 114 Surahs. 3:156 denounces them as cowards. In 9:38, Allah threatens the hypocrites with hell fire for refusing to join the jihad. in 9:68 he converts the threat into a promise.

In his opening paragraphs, Senator Lieberman compares the current National Security Strategy, which does not identify Islam as the enemy, to the 2006 ecition. Here is the money quote: "It correctly identified our enemy as "the transnational terrorists [who] exploit the proud religion of Islam to serve a violent political vision." ". We need to identify the most egregious lie in that quote, it is contained in this clause: "exploit the proud religion of Islam to serve a violent political vision'. Islam is a violent political vision! I gave you links to the jihad imperatives and a hadith which confirms them. That is standard mainstream Islam, not bi'da.

The third paragraph contains a repetition of the big lie: "violent Islamist extremism". Islam is intrinsically violent. Muslims engaged in terroristic jihad are obeying Allah and emulating their profit. They are zealots; believers [8:2, 49:15 ], not extremists.

Senator Lieberman correctly identifies the weakness in identifying al-Qaeda as the enemy, but in the process, he repeats the big lie.

First, it is not fully accurate. Defining the enemy by reference to al Qaeda implies that this war is primarily about destroying an organization, rather than defeating a broader political ideology. This war will not end when al Qaeda has been vanquished—though that, of course, is a critical goal—but only when the ideology of violent Islamist extremism that inspires and predates it is decisively rejected. That ideology motivates many other groups and individuals.

I added bold face emphasis to the critical clause and red font color & italics to the big lie. The quote would be true if Islam were substituted for the big lie.

Lieberman seems to make a habit of skirting close to the edge of truth without crossing over from the lie. I will add emphasis to this quote to make the lies stand out for you.

Finally, characterizing this war as being against a specific organization risks distracting our government from important policy questions about how to combat the ideological dimensions of the war that is taking place within Islam. It also may send a message to moderate Muslims that they can and should remain on the sidelines of this fight, while governments use conventional means to defeat al Qaeda.

A specific organization is waging war against us: Islam. Senator Lieberman, like most politicians, won't acknowledge that fact, though it is obvious that he is aware of it.

Senator Lieberman swerved near to the truth before quickly counter steering: ideological dimensions. The ideas that Allah is the deity, that he mandates global conquest, that Islam must be made to dominate the world are central to this war. This war can not be won without breaking the Muslim's faith. One man leads the way: Father Zakaria Botros; follow his lead!!! It all rests on one man's image: Moe. We must make Muslims aware of his true charactr and conduct. Fr. Botros knows how to do that, and he does it. We must scale up his mission.

The other big lie: war taking place within Islam. Hypocrites are not fighting. They are not armed. They are not motivated to take militant action. They are intimidated; they will be easily killed by believers. The believing salafists have the texts on their side; hypocrites nave nothing with which to argue against believers. The hypocrites have no viable option unless they unite, arm themselves, kill the believers and apostatize.

Al-Qaeda and Islam are one. Islam can not be defeated conventionally short of complete extermination. Is anyone willing to do that? If not, then we must defeat Islam ideologically.

Just when I start to think that Senator Lieberman might be redeemable, he comes up with another restatement of the big lie.

Muslims in fact understand better than anyone else the enormous difference between their faith and the terrorist political ideology that has exploited it.

Islam is a way of life: intra-species predation. What did Allah say? What did Moe do? Get a clue!

It appears from the next quote that Senator Lieberman may be living in fantasy land.

We must encourage and empower the non-violent Muslim majority to raise their voices to condemn the Islamist extremist ideology as a desecration of Islam, responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of innocent Muslims and people of other faiths. How can we expect those Muslims to have the courage to stand and do that if we are unwilling to define and describe the enemy as dramatically different from them?

Islam is the enemy, of the hypocrites as much as us. Allah lumps them in with us, to be killed and gathered into Hell. Muslims are the enemy; they are not different from the enemy, they are part of it. Islam is what Moe preached and practiced; Muslims are believers in what Moe preached, who attempt to emulate his works. Moe's preaching & example are not moderate, they are not peaceful and anodyne.

There is no end to ignorance & insanity.

We must recognize the nature of the fight we are in, not paper it over. The United States is definitely not at war with Islam. But a group of self-identified, extremist Muslims has definitely declared war on us, a war which they explicitly justify by reference to their religion. Muslims across the world see the ideological nature of this struggle. I believe it is disrespectful to suggest they cannot understand these distinctions and act on them.

The first sentence of that quote is entirely true. It is papered over by the traitors who mislead us, including Senator Leiberman, because, from their viewpoint, recognizing the enemy would require making the enemy extinct, which they foolishly equate with genocide. Doing to the enemy what they are trying to do to you does not lower you to their level, it leaves you alive and more secure. "Never Again!" refers to the murder of innocents, not to the extermination of predators.

The second sentence is also true. We should be at war against Islam, a declared war, as provide for by the Constitution, but we fail to identify and recognize the enemy.

Usama bin Laden's declaration of war against us is not the first. The first Islamic declaration of of war against us was not specific, it was generic and global. It is contained in 8:39 & 9:29, which are codifed in Shar'iah as Book O, Chapter 9.8 & 9.9 of Reliance of the Traveller. Sentient people will read them and curse Islam.
When Caliph Umar sent his army to Persia, his general made a statement you need to know about. It is found in Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386.

Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:-- "Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master."

Compare the quote above to the response given to Adams & Jefferson when they asked by what right the Barbary Pirates attacked our shipping. The quote comes from Wikipedia.

The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven. [3]

The "ideological nature of this struggle" boils down to: Allah's exclusive right to be worshipped, Allah's exclusive right to rule and the Muslim's obligation to enforce them. If you can't comprehend that, Senator, then step down; you are not intelligent enough to be a legislator. If you can not acknowledge the truth, Senator, then step down; you are not honest and courageous enough to be a legislator.

The real disrespect is underestimating the intelligence of the American electorate, urinating on our shoes and swearing that it is raining. We know the difference. A growing number of Americans are wising up to the fact that Islam is the enemy and terrorism is motivated by its intrinsic doctrines, not be your mythical extremism.

we all know what islam as a religion is all about.all monotheistic religions want and strive in their ideology and beliefs to rule the world under one gods only belief.the difference between christianity and islam is that during the last 5 centuries christianity has lost power in europe through uprising against religion of compulsory belief and stripped of its ill gained islam this changes did not happen and religion is everything and everywhere in a muslim country.both religions are evil and were created and invented in ancient primitive times where science was absent and illiteracy was absolute and technology was rudimentary.the god delusion is a mental disease that is embedded in war and causing destruction to others in all possible manners under the guise of god belief and the madness of afterlife.

Not quite, rudi. Jesus Christ declared that his kingdom is not temporal. He made no claim to rule the world. He issued no commandment to wage war and conquer the world.

Moe declared that only Allah has the right to be worshiped and to rule. He demanded that Muslims wage war to enforce Allah's rights.

Christianity and Islam are polar opposites.
