Obamination:Nowruz; New Year; Old Crap~Iran Taqiyya

Obamination: New Year; Old Crap~Iran Taqiyya


Obamination addresses the Persians in celebration of Nowruz, which is a remnant of Jahillia, thus un-Islamic.  Zealous Muslims consider celebration of the new year to be a form of idolatry.


    Nonsense! They are damned, not blessed. Muslims, Satan worshipers one and all, are on the highway to Hell. Citizens of Iran are suffering under a repressive theocratic  regime and the economic sanctions consequent on their quest for the A bomb.

opportunity for change

    The best chance to change Iran's relationship with her intended victims passed by in '09 when you let the green revolution die on the vine.

initial understanding

    We understand that Iran will build the bomb, on a slight delay at best, and you will not lift a finger to stop them.  How many centrifuges did they tear down? How many centrifuges will they take off line and dismantle?  Exactly how will you verify their reduced rate of uranium enrichment?

world's concerns

    Iran is dominated by twelver Shi'ia who believe that, by igniting Armageddon, they will bring back the Mahdi, who will complete their conquest of the world. They have sworn to destroy Israel and America; how might they hope to accomplish that?  They sponsor HAMAS & Hizbollah; whats to keep them from supplying A bombs to them?

opposition to 'diplomatic settlement'

    Everyone informed and mentally competent person opposes your plan. We do not want a nuclear armed Iran, not now, not ten years hence and not on the 33rd day of the month of Never. We remember the outcome of Slick Will's agreement with North Korea and we remember its outcome,. Once is enough! Only damned fools and traitors volunteer to be deceived again!

fatwa my ass!

    Ayatollah Khamenei issued no such fatwa. His fatwas have been published and searched, it does not exist. If an Imam were to issue a fatwa proscribing the use of nuclear weapons, nobody in his right mind would believe it in the light of Islamic scripture & sunnah which call for maximized military power and great slaughter besides those sanctioning deception.  Check out the report at MEMRI concerning the fatwa.

    Open the Mariful Qur'an to page 263 and read the commentary on 8.60. Here is the most relevant part, which puts no limits on modern weaponry.
The Qur'an, however, does not mention the weapons commonly used during those
days at this place. Instead, by using the general word, 'quwwah' or
power, it has pointed out in the direction that this power could be different
in terms of every age, country or area. The weapons of those
days were arrows, swords and spears. Then came the age of guns and
cannons and now is the time of bombs and rockets (and what not). The
word: 'Quwwah' or power used here covers everything. Therefore, Muslims
of today should acquire nuclear capability as far as they can - and
tanks and fighter planes and submarines - because all these are included
within the sense of this very 'Quwwah' or power.
The author of that translation and exegesis was Mufti Muhammad Shafi, a South Asian Sunni Islamic scholar of the Deobandi school of Islamic thought. A Hanafi jurist and mufti, he was also an authority on shari'ah, hadith, tafsir (Qur'anic exegesis), and tasawwuf (Sufism).  The book was revised by his son, Maulana Muhammad Taqi 'Usmani, also a jurist and expert in Shari'ah finance. 

reasonable deal

       This situation is digital, not analog. No nuclear bombs of any capacity, in any number are acceptable in Iran. Iran must not have nukes, not now; not ever!  There is nothing to negotiate; its all or nothing. If our President had reason, Iran would not have nukes and would be no where the nuclear threshold.

peaceful purposes

    Why were they studying warhead technology?  Why were they testing the explosives necessary to detonate the nuclear charge?  Whey are they trying to conceal as much of their program as possible? Why are they excluding international inspectors?

    None but damned fools & traitors wants the mad Mullahs to have U235. Plutonium or explosive devices made with them.  Only damned fools are assured by the deceptions of those licensed to lie.

great civilization

    Islamic conquest destroyed that civilization when Umar sent his army to Persia. The Persians have stripped of their heritage and enslaved to Satan.

fat chance

    The Mullahs dissipated the last year in dilatory tactics. We learned nothing from Saddam's cheat & retreat, delay & denial tactics. Damned fools never learn. We elected Obamination twice. God help us! 

    If Iran's nuclear program is not destroyed kinetically and soon, there will be no chance for peace. The Senate must tell Obamination to go to Hell. Israel must blast Iran's centrifuges and reactors to Hell.  That is the world's last chance.
Obama Speaks: an ill wind from the south mouth.    

Remarks by President Obama on Nowruz

To view the President’s video message, click HERE.

Obamination: BlowHole.

Hello!  To everyone celebrating Nowruz—across the United States and in countries around the world—Nowruz Mubarak.

For thousands of years, this has been a time to gather with family and friends and welcome a new spring and a new year.  Last week, my wife Michelle helped mark Nowruz here at the White House.  It was a celebration of the vibrant cultures, food, music and friendship of our many diaspora communities who make extraordinary contributions every day here in the United States.  We even created our own Haft Seen, representing our hopes for the new year.

This year, that includes our hopes for progress between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the international community, including the United States.  So I want to take this opportunity once again to speak directly to the people and leaders of Iran.  As you gather around the Nowruz table—from Tehran to Shiraz to Tabriz, from the coasts of the Caspian Sea to the Persian Gulf—you’re giving thanks for your blessings and looking ahead to the future.

This year, we have the best opportunity in decades to pursue a different future between our countries.  Just over a year ago, we reached an initial understanding regarding Iran’s nuclear program.  And both sides have kept our commitments.  Iran has halted progress on its nuclear program and even rolled it back in some areas.  The international community, including the United States, has provided Iran with some relief from sanctions.  Now, our diplomats—and our scientists—are engaged in negotiations in the hopes of finding a comprehensive solution that resolves the world’s concerns with Iran’s nuclear program.

The days and weeks ahead will be critical.  Our negotiations have made progress, but gaps remain.  And there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution.  My message to you—the people of Iran—is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek.  

As I have said many times before, I believe that our countries should be able to resolve this issue peacefully, with diplomacy.  Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, and President Rouhani has said that Iran would never develop a nuclear weapon.  Together with the international community, the United States has said that Iran should have access to peaceful nuclear energy, consistent with Iran’s international obligations.  So there is a way for Iran—if it is willing to take meaningful, verifiable steps—to assure the world that its nuclear program is, in fact, for peaceful purposes only.    

In this sense, Iran’s leaders have a choice between two paths.  If they cannot agree to a reasonable deal, they will keep Iran on the path it’s on today—a path that has isolated Iran, and the Iranian people, from so much of the world, caused so much hardship for Iranian families, and deprived so many young Iranians of the jobs and opportunities they deserve.

On the other hand, if Iran’s leaders can agree to a reasonable deal, it can lead to a better path—the path of greater opportunities for the Iranian people.  More trade and ties with the world.  More foreign investment and jobs, including for young Iranians.  More cultural exchanges and chances for Iranian students to travel abroad.  More partnerships in areas like science and technology and innovation.  In other words, a nuclear deal now can help open the door to a brighter future for you—the Iranian people, who, as heirs to a great civilization, have so much to give to the world.

This is what’s at stake today.  And this moment may not come again soon.  I believe that our nations have an historic opportunity to resolve this issue peacefully—an opportunity we should not miss.  As the poet Hafez wrote, “It is early spring.  Try to be joyful in your heart.  For many a flower will bloom while you will be in clay.”

For decades, our nations have been separated by mistrust and fear.  Now it is early spring.  We have a chance—a chance—to make progress that will benefit our countries, and the world, for many years to come.  Now it is up to all of us, Iranians and Americans, to seize this moment and the possibilities that can bloom in this new season.

Thank you, and Nowruzetan Pirooz.

Two State Solution: Peace In A Pig's Anus!

Two State Solution: Peace In A Pig's Anus! Ezekiel 13:10
Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar:

    No matter what concessions Israel might make, Muslims will not let her live in peace because they are obligated to conquer the world and their conquest must be permanent, there being none to reverse Allah's judgment in giving the land to Muslims through conquest.;

    Muslims hate Jews because Moe designed Islam to rope them in but the local Jews of the Hijaz saw through the fraud and rejected it. Muslims hate Israel and will never tolerate its existence because Israel is living proof of the fact that Allah is an impotent idol.  While the region and the world are infested with Muslims, peace is impossible. 

    In the short term, the minimum requirement for peace is a Muslim free zone whose center is Tel Aviv and whose radius is the range of the most powerful rocket possessed by Muslims. In the long term, the minimum requirement for peace is the total eradication of Islam through some combination of apostasy and death. This is objective factual reality, learn to live with it.

How many "peace plans" have come and gone, how many "peace talks", how many "good will gestures"; what has come of them? Only more threats, attacks and bloodshed followed by more demands for "restraint", "talks", "good will gestures" and suggestions that more pressure is required to force Israel to surrender to her enemy. 

    Giving the Falestinians a state provides a staging area for further attacks and reduces Israel's security & ability to fend off attacks. Making Falestinians  prosperous with a vibrant economy would only enable them to acquire more and better weapons to use against Jews.

    Falestinians have no interest in a state. Their interest is in a global caliphate totally Judenrein.  They could have had their state in 1948 but chose war instead. They could have had a state anytime since, but continue to opt for genocidal conquest. Its time for you to get a clue and share it with Obamination.

    It is tempting to despair of any hope when so many ignore the root of the problem and many more are unaware of it. The purpose of this article is to increase awareness of the genesis of the genocidal & politicidal attempted reconquest of Israel.

    This major battlefront in Islam's Jihad against mankind has its origin in Islamic doctrine and finds its sustenance therein.  Moe's Sunnah is most instructive. Study this hadith about Moe's visit to the local Jewish settlements surrounding Medina.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 392:
             Narrated Abu Huraira:

    While we were in the Mosque, the Prophet came out and said, "Let us go to the Jews" We went out till we reached Bait-ul-Midras. He said to them, "If you embrace Islam, you will be safe.You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. So, if anyone amongst you owns some property, he is permitted to sell it, otherwise you should know that the Earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle."

What is the meaning of this hadith? "If you embrace Islam, you will be safe". What if we reject Islam? "I want to expel you from this land." Sahih Muslim 19.4363 adds this:
...otherwise they should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle (and they may have to go away leaving everything behind).
The two most accepted collections of hadith have similar versions of Moe telling the local Jews that he owns the entire earth and intends to drive them away and take their worldly goods.

    Those sayings relate to Jews living in the Hijaz, how are they extended to Israel? By this hadith collected by Abu Dawud.
Abu Dawud 14.2477
Narrated Ibn Hawalah:

    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: It will turn out that you will be armed troops, one is Syria, one in the Yemen and one in Iraq. Ibn Hawalah said: Choose for me, Apostle of Allah, if I reach that time. He replied: Go to Syria, for it is Allah's chosen land, to which his best servants will be gathered but if you are unwilling, go to your Yemen, and draw water from your tanks, for Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people.
Ibn Hawalah asked Moe where to attack and Moe directed him to the Roman Province of Syria because "Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people."

    You may be thinking its just a folk tale, an idle saying. But Moe is to be obeyed. Everything he did and said is Sunnah: exemplary conduct to be emulated.
3:32. Say (O Muhammad ): "Obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad )." But if they turn away, then Allah does not like the disbelievers.

    Moe guided his warriors toward the Levant. What did Allah order them to do?
9:29.   Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Allah issued an explicit order to fight Jews who do not embrace Islam until they are subjugated and pay extortion. It is an outcome oriented order, with neither geographic nor chronological limits. For the benefit of those who suspect mis-translation, mis-interpretation, distortion & out of context quotation, I cite Ibn Kathir's Tafsir.
[...]Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination. [...]
    What most westerners don't know is that Allah's word is law, to be obeyed without question. Because of his word and Moe's exemplary conduct, this ayeh is reflected in Shariah. I cite Umdat as-Salik wa 'Uddat an-Nasik (Reliance of the Traveller and Tools of the Worshipper).  This is Islamic law, recognized by the Sheikhs at Al-Azhar.
O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
"Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),
"I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"
this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

What does the Caliph do? He makes war upon Jews & Christians. Why? Because Allah commanded it. How long does this continue, Until Jesus returns to finish the job.
In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world.
How frequently must he attack them?
O9.1[...]"Jihad is a communal obligation," meaning upon the Muslims each year.[...]
    Are there confirmations in Moe's Sunnah? Of course! Moe attacked local Jewish tribes. First he sent an extortion letter to the Jews at Khaibar, then he made his ghazwat. For Koranic confirmation of attacks upon local Jews, see 33:26-27 & 59:2.

    How long does this continue again?  Until the Last Day!
Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526

    Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, "There is no god but Allah" and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.
    And what of the final outcome?
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
The Hour is a reference to Judgment Day. The Muslims can't collect their reward until they complete genocide against the Jews.

    If you are not offended yet, and your screen & keyboard remain unsullied, those conditions can be remedied. Earlier I dropped a hint in a link. Now  I will be more explicit. There are certain prophetic hadith in Bukhari's collection.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 55, Number 657:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it." Abu Huraira added "If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): -- 'And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) Before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them." (4.159) (See Fateh Al Bari, Page 302 Vol 7)

What is the meaning of "kill the pigs"?  Wasn't there some reference to pigs in the Qur'an? Lets have a look.
5:60. Say (O Muhammad  to the people of the Scripture): "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell­fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)."
This all becomes clear when we read Ibn Kathir's tafsir of 7:167.
7:167. And (remember) when your Lord declared that He would certainly keep on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. Verily, your Lord is Quick in Retribution (for the disobedient, wicked) and certainly He is Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful (for the obedient and those who beg Allah's Forgiveness).
[...]In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world.[..]
Allah will do what to whom until Resurrection Day? Send tormentors against the Jews! Whomever might that be? And Jesus will lead them in finishing the job. Got a clue yet?  Exactly what part of this is not abundantly clear?

    For the benefit of those who can not connect the dots (LibTards) I will cite the remaining chapter & verse which make peace in the Levant an impossibility. I already presented the absolute command to make war upon the Jews. I also showed you its duration. Now you will see why it can not terminate.
8:66. Now Allah has lightened your (task), for He knows that there is weakness in you. So if there are of you a hundred steadfast persons, they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand of you, they shall overcome two thousand with the Leave of Allah. And Allah is with As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).
Allah promised the Muslims that thay can overcome 2:1 numerical odds.  In the previous ayat, he promised 10:1.

13:41. See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allah judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.
40:51. Verily, We will indeed make victorious Our Messengers and those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) in this world's life and on the Day when the witnesses will stand forth, (i.e. Day of Resurrection),

61:9. He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islamic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger Muhammed) hate (it).
For the chronically clueless: Allah promised Muslims that they could defeat armies twice as numerous as theirs, gradually overcome them and take their lands and be victorious. In 638, Caliph Umar conquered the Province of Syria. As far as Islam is concerned, that makes the Levant permanent Islamic Waqf. There is nothing more offensive to Islam than to suffer Kuffar recovering their land and ruling over their Muslim occupiers!!  Israel is the ultimate insult to Islam: she is living proof of the fact that Allah is an impotent idol whose promises are vain.  There is no way  the Muslims will ever tolerate her existence. It ain't possible! They absolutely must reconquer Israel.

    Only a total, absolute military victory, one which destroys Islam completely can put an end to Jihad. This is the fatal fact of Islam which none dares contemplate.  Nixon & Kissinger could not force peace. Reagan & Baker could not force peace. Clinton & Albright could not force peace. Bush , Powell & Rice could not force peace.  Peace must come from total and absolute victory over Islam, it has no other source. While there is Islam, there is Jihad.

    You who believe that reforming Islamic governments, introducing democracy, educating the populace and abolishing poverty will end Jihad are blind, ignorant fools. Jihad is a sacrament, an eternal commandment of Allah's perfected, immutable word. Jihad; holy fighting in Allah's cause,  is an intrinsic part of Islam; it is the Muslim's original religion, and they are cursed if they abandon it.
Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

    But its the "religion of peace". Yeah, right. Study this tafsir of 8.61 from the Mariful Qur'an. Infidels must sue for peace and it is granted only if the caliph  feels that it is in Islam's best interest.
Mariful Qur'an 4.265 278 8.61

The third verse (61) takes up injunctions of peace and aspects related
to it. It was said: (And if they tilt towards peace,
you tilt towards it). The word: (salm) with fatha on sin, or: ,,L (silm
with kasrah on sh are both used in the sense of peace. The meaning of
the verse - as fairly evident from the translation - is that should the
disbelievers incline towards peace on some occasion, you too should incline
towards it. At this point, it should be borne in mind that the imperative
form has been used here to carry the sense of choice. Thus,
the intended sense is that at a time when disbelievers are inclined towards
peace, the Holy Prophet  also has the choice of making
peace, if he feels peace is in the best interest of Muslims.
And the restriction of:  (if they tilt) tells us that peace can be
made only when the desire to have peace comes from the disbelievers -
because, should Muslims themselves start proposing peace without
their desire to have it, then, this would be taken as a sign of their

    Suing for peace is a sign of weakness. Muslims are warned against it. They only make peace for a ten year term when they are too weak to prevail, hudna affords them time to regroup and rearm before renewing their attacks.
47:35. So be not weak and ask not for peace (from the enemies of Islâm), while you are having the upper hand. Allâh is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds.

Netanyahu to Congress: Swerving Close to the Truth

Bibi to Congress: Iran     [Transcript of remarks follows my commentary.]
    As always, I am critical of one characteristic of Prime Minister Netanyahu's address to Congress. He never mentioned Islam without prefixing a qualifier: "militant".

Its Islam, Stupid!

    Does he not know how the territory of his country came under Islamic domination in the seventh century?  Does he not know that "Jihad is ordained" for Muslims?  Is he unaware of the fact that Muslims are commanded to wage war against Jews until they are subjugated and extorted?  Is he blissfully aware of Moe's prediction that the gates of Jannah will not swing open for Muslims until the murder the last Jew?  Is he ignorant of the fact that in Shari'ah, the minimum jihad requirement is one attack in every year? Does he not know that "Infidels may be attacked without provocation."?  Is he ignorant of the fact that terror is both a means and an end; "the decision" Muslims seek to impose?

Muslims are the enemy

    Islam is the set of  doctrines; imperatives, threat, promise & exemplar that make Muslims inimical to the remainder of the human race.

Muslims need nukes

    Muslims need nuclear weapons with which to threaten and terrorize us so as to destroy our will and ability to mount an effective defense. Hilali & Khan brought the Qur'an up to date, expanding the list of weaponry beyond calvary.

8:60. And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.

Mariful Qur'an commentary on 8.60 Vol. 4, pg. 263

The Qur'an,
however, does not mention the weapons commonly used during those
days at this place. Instead, by using the general word, 'quwwah' or
power, it has pointed out in the direction that this power could be different
in terms of every age, country or area. The weapons of those
days were arrows, swords and spears. Then came the age of guns and
cannons and now is the time of bombs and rockets (and what not). The
word: 'Quwwah' or power used here covers everything. Therefore, Muslims
of today should acquire nuclear capability as far as they can - and
tanks and fighter planes and submarines - because all these are included
within the sense of this very 'Quwwah' or power.

See also page 264 for the confirmation:

After having given the command to make war materials ready for
use, also described there was the wisdom of assembling these materials
together - and its real purpose - in the following words: $1 jc %&$'
$fk;(whereby you frighten the enemy of Allah and your own enemy -
60). It means that the real purpose of acquiring and storing military
hardware, whether for initiated action or defence, is not to indulge in
an exercise of killing and being killed. The purpose, in fact, is to bring
down the force of Kufr and Shirk and fill the hearts of their protagonists
with awe so that they stay suppressed.

Its not Islamism or Islamist

Its Islam, Stupid!

    Muslims are obligated to Impose Islam on the whole world. Ibn Khaldun stated it clearly .
Muqaddimah Chapter3  Ch_3_31
In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the (Muslim) mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.


    The Iranian regime is normative, not radical. The Sunni regimes share the same objective, but are slightly more patient in pursuing it and less vocal about it.


      Sanctions do not work. Kinetic force is required to destroy the centrifuge installations and related laboratories.  Kinetic force is needed to permanently remove the ruling clique and secularize Iran.

   Bibi correctly analyzed Iran's intentions. He makes a guess at their capacity; we won't be sure until it is too late, with the first supernumerary sunrise over Israel.   Bibi correctly analyzed the history of negotiating with N. Korea. The same principles apply.  It appears that only Israel's leader has learned from history and has the will to employ his knowledge to save the world.

... Speaker of the House John Boehner, President Pro Tem Senator Orrin Hatch, Senator Minority -- Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

I also want to acknowledge Senator, Democratic Leader Harry Reid. Harry, it's good to see you back on your feet.


I guess it's true what they say, you can't keep a good man down.


My friends, I'm deeply humbled by the opportunity to speak for a third time before the most important legislative body in the world, the U.S. Congress.


I want to thank you all for being here today. I know that my speech has been the subject of much controversy. I deeply regret that some perceive my being here as political. That was never my intention.

I want to thank you, Democrats and Republicans, for your common support for Israel, year after year, decade after decade.


I know that no matter on which side of the aisle you sit, you stand with Israel.


[READ: Republicans loved every word of Bibi's address]

The remarkable alliance between Israel and the United States has always been above politics. It must always remain above politics.


Because America and Israel, we share a common destiny, the destiny of promised lands that cherish freedom and offer hope. Israel is grateful for the support of American -- of America's people and of America's presidents, from Harry Truman to Barack Obama.


We appreciate all that President Obama has done for Israel.

Now, some of that is widely known.


Some of that is widely known, like strengthening security cooperation and intelligence sharing, opposing anti-Israel resolutions at the U.N.

Some of what the president has done for Israel is less well- known.

I called him in 2010 when we had the Carmel forest fire, and he immediately agreed to respond to my request for urgent aid.

In 2011, we had our embassy in Cairo under siege, and again, he provided vital assistance at the crucial moment.

Or his support for more missile interceptors during our operation last summer when we took on Hamas terrorists.


In each of those moments, I called the president, and he was there.

And some of what the president has done for Israel might never be known, because it touches on some of the most sensitive and strategic issues that arise between an American president and an Israeli prime minister.

But I know it, and I will always be grateful to President Obama for that support.


And Israel is grateful to you, the American Congress, for your support, for supporting us in so many ways, especially in generous military assistance and missile defense, including Iron Dome.


Last summer, millions of Israelis were protected from thousands of Hamas rockets because this capital dome helped build our Iron Dome.


Thank you, America. Thank you for everything you've done for Israel.

My friends, I've come here today because, as prime minister of Israel, I feel a profound obligation to speak to you about an issue that could well threaten the survival of my country and the future of my people: Iran's quest for nuclear weapons.

We're an ancient people. In our nearly 4,000 years of history, many have tried repeatedly to destroy the Jewish people. Tomorrow night, on the Jewish holiday of Purim, we'll read the Book of Esther. We'll read of a powerful Persian viceroy named Haman, who plotted to destroy the Jewish people some 2,500 years ago. But a courageous Jewish woman, Queen Esther, exposed the plot and gave for the Jewish people the right to defend themselves against their enemies.

The plot was foiled. Our people were saved.


Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei spews the oldest hatred, the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology. He tweets that Israel must be annihilated -- he tweets. You know, in Iran, there isn't exactly free Internet. But he tweets in English that Israel must be destroyed.

For those who believe that Iran threatens the Jewish state, but not the Jewish people, listen to Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, Iran's chief terrorist proxy. He said: If all the Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of chasing them down around the world.

But Iran's regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem. The 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis were but a fraction of the 60 million people killed in World War II. So, too, Iran's regime poses a grave threat, not only to Israel, but also the peace of the entire world. To understand just how dangerous Iran would be with nuclear weapons, we must fully understand the nature of the regime.

The people of Iran are very talented people. They're heirs to one of the world's great civilizations. But in 1979, they were hijacked by religious zealots -- religious zealots who imposed on them immediately a dark and brutal dictatorship.

That year, the zealots drafted a constitution, a new one for Iran. It directed the revolutionary guards not only to protect Iran's borders, but also to fulfill the ideological mission of jihad. The regime's founder, Ayatollah Khomeini, exhorted his followers to "export the revolution throughout the world."

I'm standing here in Washington, D.C. and the difference is so stark. America's founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran's founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad. And as states are collapsing across the Middle East, Iran is charging into the void to do just that.

Iran's goons in Gaza, its lackeys in Lebanon, its revolutionary guards on the Golan Heights are clutching Israel with three tentacles of terror. Backed by Iran, Assad is slaughtering Syrians. Back by Iran, Shiite militias are rampaging through Iraq. Back by Iran, Houthis are seizing control of Yemen, threatening the strategic straits at the mouth of the Red Sea. Along with the Straits of Hormuz, that would give Iran a second choke-point on the world's oil supply.

Just last week, near Hormuz, Iran carried out a military exercise blowing up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier. That's just last week, while they're having nuclear talks with the United States. But unfortunately, for the last 36 years, Iran's attacks against the United States have been anything but mock. And the targets have been all too real.

Iran took dozens of Americans hostage in Tehran, murdered hundreds of American soldiers, Marines, in Beirut, and was responsible for killing and maiming thousands of American service men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Beyond the Middle East, Iran attacks America and its allies through its global terror network. It blew up the Jewish community center and the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires. It helped Al Qaida bomb U.S. embassies in Africa. It even attempted to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, right here in Washington, D.C.

In the Middle East, Iran now dominates four Arab capitals, Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and Sanaa. And if Iran's aggression is left unchecked, more will surely follow.

So, at a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations, Iran is busy gobbling up the nations.


We must all stand together to stop Iran's march of conquest, subjugation and terror.


Now, two years ago, we were told to give President Rouhani and Foreign Minister Zarif a chance to bring change and moderation to Iran. Some change! Some moderation!

Rouhani's government hangs gays, persecutes Christians, jails journalists and executes even more prisoners than before.

Last year, the same Zarif who charms Western diplomats laid a wreath at the grave of Imad Mughniyeh. Imad Mughniyeh is the terrorist mastermind who spilled more American blood than any other terrorist besides Osama bin Laden. I'd like to see someone ask him a question about that.

Iran's regime is as radical as ever, its cries of "Death to America," that same America that it calls the "Great Satan," as loud as ever.

Now, this shouldn't be surprising, because the ideology of Iran's revolutionary regime is deeply rooted in militant Islam, and that's why this regime will always be an enemy of America.

Don't be fooled. The battle between Iran and ISIS doesn't turn Iran into a friend of America.

Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam. One calls itself the Islamic Republic. The other calls itself the Islamic State. Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire first on the region and then on the entire world. They just disagree among themselves who will be the ruler of that empire.

In this deadly game of thrones, there's no place for America or for Israel, no peace for Christians, Jews or Muslims who don't share the Islamist medieval creed, no rights for women, no freedom for anyone.

So when it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.


The difference is that ISIS is armed with butcher knives, captured weapons and YouTube, whereas Iran could soon be armed with intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear bombs. We must always remember -- I'll say it one more time -- the greatest dangers facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons. To defeat ISIS and let Iran get nuclear weapons would be to win the battle, but lose the war. We can't let that happen.


But that, my friends, is exactly what could happen, if the deal now being negotiated is accepted by Iran. That deal will not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. It would all but guarantee that Iran gets those weapons, lots of them.

Let me explain why. While the final deal has not yet been signed, certain elements of any potential deal are now a matter of public record. You don't need intelligence agencies and secret information to know this. You can Google it.

Absent a dramatic change, we know for sure that any deal with Iran will include two major concessions to Iran.

The first major concession would leave Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure, providing it with a short break-out time to the bomb. Break-out time is the time it takes to amass enough weapons-grade uranium or plutonium for a nuclear bomb.

According to the deal, not a single nuclear facility would be demolished. Thousands of centrifuges used to enrich uranium would be left spinning. Thousands more would be temporarily disconnected, but not destroyed.

Because Iran's nuclear program would be left largely intact, Iran's break-out time would be very short -- about a year by U.S. assessment, even shorter by Israel's.

And if -- if Iran's work on advanced centrifuges, faster and faster centrifuges, is not stopped, that break-out time could still be shorter, a lot shorter.

True, certain restrictions would be imposed on Iran's nuclear program and Iran's adherence to those restrictions would be supervised by international inspectors. But here's the problem. You see, inspectors document violations; they don't stop them.

Inspectors knew when North Korea broke to the bomb, but that didn't stop anything. North Korea turned off the cameras, kicked out the inspectors. Within a few years, it got the bomb.

Now, we're warned that within five years North Korea could have an arsenal of 100 nuclear bombs.

Like North Korea, Iran, too, has defied international inspectors. It's done that on at least three separate occasions -- 2005, 2006, 2010. Like North Korea, Iran broke the locks, shut off the cameras.

Now, I know this is not gonna come a shock -- as a shock to any of you, but Iran not only defies inspectors, it also plays a pretty good game of hide-and-cheat with them.

The U.N.'s nuclear watchdog agency, the IAEA, said again yesterday that Iran still refuses to come clean about its military nuclear program. Iran was also caught -- caught twice, not once, twice -- operating secret nuclear facilities in Natanz and Qom, facilities that inspectors didn't even know existed.

Right now, Iran could be hiding nuclear facilities that we don't know about, the U.S. and Israel. As the former head of inspections for the IAEA said in 2013, he said, "If there's no undeclared installation today in Iran, it will be the first time in 20 years that it doesn't have one." Iran has proven time and again that it cannot be trusted. And that's why the first major concession is a source of great concern. It leaves Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure and relies on inspectors to prevent a breakout. That concession creates a real danger that Iran could get to the bomb by violating the deal.

But the second major concession creates an even greater danger that Iran could get to the bomb by keeping the deal. Because virtually all the restrictions on Iran's nuclear program will automatically expire in about a decade.

Now, a decade may seem like a long time in political life, but it's the blink of an eye in the life of a nation. It's a blink of an eye in the life of our children. We all have a responsibility to consider what will happen when Iran's nuclear capabilities are virtually unrestricted and all the sanctions will have been lifted. Iran would then be free to build a huge nuclear capacity that could product many, many nuclear bombs.

Iran's Supreme Leader says that openly. He says, Iran plans to have 190,000 centrifuges, not 6,000 or even the 19,000 that Iran has today, but 10 times that amount -- 190,000 centrifuges enriching uranium. With this massive capacity, Iran could make the fuel for an entire nuclear arsenal and this in a matter of weeks, once it makes that decision.

My long-time friend, John Kerry, Secretary of State, confirmed last week that Iran could legitimately possess that massive centrifuge capacity when the deal expires.

Now I want you to think about that. The foremost sponsor of global terrorism could be weeks away from having enough enriched uranium for an entire arsenal of nuclear weapons and this with full international legitimacy.

And by the way, if Iran's Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program is not part of the deal, and so far, Iran refuses to even put it on the negotiating table. Well, Iran could have the means to deliver that nuclear arsenal to the far-reach corners of the earth, including to every part of the United States.

So you see, my friends, this deal has two major concessions: one, leaving Iran with a vast nuclear program and two, lifting the restrictions on that program in about a decade. That's why this deal is so bad. It doesn't block Iran's path to the bomb; it paves Iran's path to the bomb.

So why would anyone make this deal? Because they hope that Iran will change for the better in the coming years, or they believe that the alternative to this deal is worse?

Well, I disagree. I don't believe that Iran's radical regime will change for the better after this deal. This regime has been in power for 36 years, and its voracious appetite for aggression grows with each passing year. This deal would wet appetite -- would only wet Iran's appetite for more.

Would Iran be less aggressive when sanctions are removed and its economy is stronger? If Iran is gobbling up four countries right now while it's under sanctions, how many more countries will Iran devour when sanctions are lifted? Would Iran fund less terrorism when it has mountains of cash with which to fund more terrorism?

Why should Iran's radical regime change for the better when it can enjoy the best of both world's: aggression abroad, prosperity at home?

This is a question that everyone asks in our region. Israel's neighbors -- Iran's neighbors know that Iran will become even more aggressive and sponsor even more terrorism when its economy is unshackled and it's been given a clear path to the bomb.

And many of these neighbors say they'll respond by racing to get nuclear weapons of their own. So this deal won't change Iran for the better; it will only change the Middle East for the worse. A deal that's supposed to prevent nuclear proliferation would instead spark a nuclear arms race in the most dangerous part of the planet.

This deal won't be a farewell to arms. It would be a farewell to arms control. And the Middle East would soon be crisscrossed by nuclear tripwires. A region where small skirmishes can trigger big wars would turn into a nuclear tinderbox.

If anyone thinks -- if anyone thinks this deal kicks the can down the road, think again. When we get down that road, we'll face a much more dangerous Iran, a Middle East littered with nuclear bombs and a countdown to a potential nuclear nightmare.

Ladies and gentlemen, I've come here today to tell you we don't have to bet the security of the world on the hope that Iran will change for the better. We don't have to gamble with our future and with our children's future.

We can insist that restrictions on Iran's nuclear program not be lifted for as long as Iran continues its aggression in the region and in the world.


Before lifting those restrictions, the world should demand that Iran do three things. First, stop its aggression against its neighbors in the Middle East. Second...


Second, stop supporting terrorism around the world.


And third, stop threatening to annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state.


Thank you.

If the world powers are not prepared to insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal is signed, at the very least they should insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal expires.


If Iran changes its behavior, the restrictions would be lifted. If Iran doesn't change its behavior, the restrictions should not be lifted.


If Iran wants to be treated like a normal country, let it act like a normal country.


My friends, what about the argument that there's no alternative to this deal, that Iran's nuclear know-how cannot be erased, that its nuclear program is so advanced that the best we can do is delay the inevitable, which is essentially what the proposed deal seeks to do?

Well, nuclear know-how without nuclear infrastructure doesn't get you very much. A racecar driver without a car can't drive. A pilot without a plan can't fly. Without thousands of centrifuges, tons of enriched uranium or heavy water facilities, Iran can't make nuclear weapons.


Iran's nuclear program can be rolled back well-beyond the current proposal by insisting on a better deal and keeping up the pressure on a very vulnerable regime, especially given the recent collapse in the price of oil.


Now, if Iran threatens to walk away from the table -- and this often happens in a Persian bazaar -- call their bluff. They'll be back, because they need the deal a lot more than you do.


And by maintaining the pressure on Iran and on those who do business with Iran, you have the power to make them need it even more.

My friends, for over a year, we've been told that no deal is better than a bad deal. Well, this is a bad deal. It's a very bad deal. We're better off without it.


Now we're being told that the only alternative to this bad deal is war. That's just not true.

The alternative to this bad deal is a much better deal.


A better deal that doesn't leave Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure and such a short break-out time. A better deal that keeps the restrictions on Iran's nuclear program in place until Iran's aggression ends.


A better deal that won't give Iran an easy path to the bomb. A better deal that Israel and its neighbors may not like, but with which we could live, literally. And no country...


... no country has a greater stake -- no country has a greater stake than Israel in a good deal that peacefully removes this threat.

Ladies and gentlemen, history has placed us at a fateful crossroads. We must now choose between two paths. One path leads to a bad deal that will at best curtail Iran's nuclear ambitions for a while, but it will inexorably lead to a nuclear-armed Iran whose unbridled aggression will inevitably lead to war.

The second path, however difficult, could lead to a much better deal, that would prevent a nuclear-armed Iran, a nuclearized Middle East and the horrific consequences of both to all of humanity.

You don't have to read Robert Frost to know. You have to live life to know that the difficult path is usually the one less traveled, but it will make all the difference for the future of my country, the security of the Middle East and the peace of the world, the peace, we all desire.


My friend, standing up to Iran is not easy. Standing up to dark and murderous regimes never is. With us today is Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel.


Elie, your life and work inspires to give meaning to the words, "never again."


And I wish I could promise you, Elie, that the lessons of history have been learned. I can only urge the leaders of the world not to repeat the mistakes of the past.


Not to sacrifice the future for the present; not to ignore aggression in the hopes of gaining an illusory peace.

But I can guarantee you this, the days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over.


We are no longer scattered among the nations, powerless to defend ourselves. We restored our sovereignty in our ancient home. And the soldiers who defend our home have boundless courage. For the first time in 100 generations, we, the Jewish people, can defend ourselves.


This is why -- this is why, as a prime minister of Israel, I can promise you one more thing: Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.


But I know that Israel does not stand alone. I know that America stands with Israel.


I know that you stand with Israel.


You stand with Israel, because you know that the story of Israel is not only the story of the Jewish people but of the human spirit that refuses again and again to succumb to history's horrors.


Facing me right up there in the gallery, overlooking all of us in this (inaudible) chamber is the image of Moses. Moses led our people from slavery to the gates of the Promised Land.

And before the people of Israel entered the land of Israel, Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years. I leave you with his message today, (SPEAKING IN HEBREW), "Be strong and resolute, neither fear nor dread them."

My friends, may Israel and America always stand together, strong and resolute. May we neither fear nor dread the challenges ahead. May we face the future with confidence, strength and hope.

May God bless the state of Israel and may God bless the United States of America.


Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you all.

You're wonderful.

Thank you, America. Thank you.

Thank you.

An Inquiry Into Islam: The Dilemma of Islamic Terrorism

An Inquiry Into Islam: The Dilemma of Islamic Terrorism: The following article, originally published here , was written by Ali Sina, former Muslim, author of Understanding Muhammad , and founder of...

   This powerful essay gives an overview of the fatal facts and states three possible courses of action. While I expect that none of them will be sufficient alone and that a combination is required, I very much prefer the education option.


    Dr. Sina  was reported to be working on a docudrama based on Ibn Ishaq's Sira.  Nothing would give me more hope. It is what our government should be doing as a top priority.

A strategy to Defeat Islamic Conquest

Resposnse to McCarthy Jim Campbell blogged an excellent essay by Andrew McCarthy in which McCarthy swerved dangerously close to the truth but stopped a few millimeters short of the goal. This is my response to Jim's commentary and McCarthy's essay.
  • To affect the Muslim and Islamic Jihadist mind, they must all be blown asunder.
    • Vaporizing them obliterates their minds. Positive mental attitude correction can only be made while they are alive, by forcing them to abandon belief in Allah, his imperatives, threat and promise.
  • The Atomic bomb was an excellent mood changer when dropped on the Japanese during WW II. 
    • It did not change the attitude of those it vaporized. It terrorized and demoralized the survivors. That can not happen with Muslims unless they cease believing in Allah. Please review "The Quranic Concept Of War", page 60.
  • There is a path to victory in the fight against radical Islam, and our next president should embrace it.
    • Drop the fact bomb. Where that is insufficient, drop nukes. Totally eradicate Islam from the face of the earth: make Islam extinct feces. Anything less guarantees continued terrorist imperialism.
  • What should be the national-defense strategy of the United States against radical Islam, the most immediate and thoroughgoing security and cultural threat we face today? 
    • Total extinction :  a world absolutely free of believers in Islamic supremacism. No living Muslims.
  • What should we hope to hear from Republicans who want to be the party’s standard-bearer?
    • "Islam is the enemy; my strategy is to eradicate it."
  • Those are all pretexts for aggression. Our enemies are driven by an ideology, Islamic supremacism, that is rooted in a classical interpretation of sharia — Islamic law.
    • Only Allah has the right to be worshiped. Only Allah has the right to legislate. Only Allah has the right to rule and govern. Infidelity must be eliminated by death or Islam. Allah commands conquest. Allah commands striking terror. Allah promises victory. Go to Jihad or go to Hell. Go to Jihad and go to Paradise.
  • In the “you are with us or you are with the terrorists” view of national security, any Muslim nation, organization, or individual that adheres to Islamic supremacism is on the wrong side.
    • Every person who believes in Allah, his imperatives, threat & Promise is one of the enemy: all Muslims. No exceptions.
  • A candidate who cannot tell liberty’s friends from liberty’s enemies is not fit to be commander-in-chief.
    • A candidate who will not curse & condemn Islam is not fit for nomination.
    At least three screen plays based on Ibn Ishaq's Sira sit on the shelf because nobody has the SISU to produce and distribute them. Get it done. Follow up with detailed docudramas demonstrating how Moe issued situational scripture, prayed to Satan for prey & plunder, raped captive women and lusted after children. That would be a good start.

    Remind Muslims of Allah's promises of "near victory" & irreversible conquest.  Rub their snouts in the reconquests of Bulgaria, Greece, Israel & Romania.  Rub their snouts in four successive defeats by Israel.

    Islam is not peaceful. It is intrinsically violent because its founder got his living by extortion and plunder; he created Islam to perpetuate war under a false mantle of religion. Islam is the nearest thing to vampirism. It can not be respected or tolerated, it must be exterminated. Muslims will not cease attacking because their eternal destination depends on it. While they believe they can not be defeated short of extinction.

Crucial quotes from the Qur'anic Concept of war

    Brig. S.K. Malik wrote The Qur'anic Concept of War as a training manual for the army of Pakistan.  His analysis will help you to comprehend their strategy. Terror is both a means and an end.  This paragraph comes from the bottom of page 59. [Emphasis added.]

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 opponent's 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 decision we wish to impose upon him.

    There is one necessary prerequisite for instilling terror: the destruction of our faith. Islam's strong faith shields Muslims from being terrorized. This paragraph comes from page 60. [Emphasis added.]

Terror cannot be struck into the hearts of an army by merely
 cutting its lines of communication or depriving it of its routes
of withdrawal. It is basically related to the strength or weakness
of the human soul. It can be instilled only if the opponent's
Faith is destroyed. Psychological dislocation is temporary;
spiritual dislocation is permanent. Psychological dislocation can be
produced by a physical act but this does not hold good of the
spiritual dislocation. To instill terror into the hearts of the enemy, 
it is essential. in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate his Faith. An
invincible Faith is immune to terror. A weak Faith offers inroads
to terror. The Faith conferred upon us by the Holy Qur'an has
the inherent strength to ward off terror from us and to enable
us to strike terror into the enemy. Whatever the form or type of
strategy directed against the enemy, it must, in order to be effective,
be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy. A strategy
that fails to attain this condition suffers from inherent drawbacks
and weaknesses; and should be reviewed and modified. This rule
is fully applicable to nuclear as well as conventional wars. It is
equally true of the strategy of nuclear deterrence in fashion
today. To be credible and effective, the strategy of deterrence
must be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy.
