David P. Goldman, writing at the Asia Times, called me to order: Wrong venue for Obama's Muslim speech
The first sentence, particularly the quoted phrase, brought the issue into focus for me. "Muslim world" implies unity; that Dar al-Islam has conquered Dar al-Harb and taken over. Earlier, President Obama said that the U.S.A. is not a Christian nation. This time, he declared us a Muslim nation. As such, it must either be immune from attack if ruled by Muslims or conquered to restore it to righteous Muslim rule, eliminating the Kafir government. With a Muslim President ensconced in the White House, how much time will pass before the practitioners of takfir will call for his head as a hypocrite? Continued conflict in Afghanistan & Iraq would guarantee that outcome.
Why should the president of the United States address the "Muslim world", as Barack Obama will do in Egypt this Thursday? What would happen if the leader of a big country addressed the "Christian world"? Half the world would giggle and the other half would sulk.
The expression"Muslim world" is part of an egregious pandering campaign of appeasement which can only embolden our enemies and renew their enthusiasm , prompting further attacks. To the casual listener, it is a reference to the parts of Asia, Africa & Europe where Allah's writ runs. But world is an inclusive term, implying the whole ofthe planet, not a region or subdivision.
The U.S.A. is a secular nation, not a theocracy. It is so by design and wisely so. We have citezens who adhere to various and some to no religion. Officially, religion is a personal and private matter, not to be imposed upon others by force. Islam is political; it demands a total monopoly on faith and practice; declaring itself perfect and all others falseimpostors which must be suppressed under Islamic rule.
In our system, laws are made by elected legislatures. In Islam, Allahs word is law and new conditions are treated by analogy and consencus of the Ulema. Islamic law is applied by the Caliph or Imam and his decision is final. Doubters & dissenters are referred to 33:26 for correction.
- 33:36. It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.
There is no provision for overturning a fraudulent election; or for do-overs. Any suggestion of a military coup is totally unacceptable, as is civil war. We citizens must rise up in unison, as one, and, with a loud clear voice, demand that the Congress refuse to enact any of Obama's treasonous policies & programs, foreign and domestic.
Contact your Congressman & Senators. Tell them to put the brakes on all of Obama's programs. Tell them to stop and repeal the TARP & stimulus plans. Tell them to cancel plans for Alien Amnesty . Tell them to keep their sticky fingers off of the health care system. Tell them to take swift, decicesive military action against N. Korea & Iran. Make demands, not suggestions. Be disrespectful. Threaten to quit paying taxes. Promise to vote the bums out of office if they do not level out and fly straight. We have no other recourse. Wake up! Wise up!! Rise up!!! Revolt!!!!
