I selected three quotes from Rush's rant because they convey and overlook important concepts.
The change would be a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventive war. It currently states, 'The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.'" Obama doesn't like that. He's pulling it out.
Shrub and Obamination are both wrong; Shrub is only slightly closer to objective factual reality. "Militant Islamic radicalism" is a fallacy; no such entity exists. The enemy is Islam; standard, off the shelf, orthodox Islam as Moe preached and practiced it, not some imaginary 'radicals' or 'extremists.
Islam is not defined by the relatively 'secular' or 'moderate' Muslims or 'Muslims in name' only. Islam is defined by what Moe said while speaking for Allah, recorded in the Qur'an. Islam is exemplified by Moe's sunna, as recorded in the collected oral traditions of his companions. Moe had a name for those "secular" Muslims: hypocrites. He said of them that "They recite Qur'an but it does not go beyond their throats (i.e. they do not act on it) and they will desert Islam as an arrow goes through a victim's body, so that the hunter, on looking at the arrow's blade, would see nothing on it;" [Sahih Bukhari 4.56.807]
Allah commanded Muslims to wage war against Polytheists and atheists until resistance ceases and only Allah is worshiped on a global scale. The commandment is recorded in 8:39. confirmed by Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 and codified into Shari'ah in Reliance of the Traveller O9.9. The clear and obvious meaning of the command is confirmed by Ibn Kathir's Tafsir: The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr.
Allah commanded Muslims to wage war against Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians until they are subjugated and make annual extortion payments. The commandment is recorded in 9:29, confirmed by Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 and codified into Shari'ah in Reliance of the Traveller O9.8. the clear and obvious meaning of the command is confirmed by Ibn Kathir's Tafsir: The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah.
Those commands are not anachronisms; Allah's word has no expiration date. Jihad is defined in Reliance of the Traveller O9.0 as "To war against non-Muslims". Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2526 informs us of the duration of Jihad: "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)."
Between 1783 and 1815, American merchant vessels engaged in trade were attacked by the Barbary Pirates. At that time, Israel was occupied by the Ottoman Empire. There were no American troops stationed in Arabia. So, why did Islam attack our shipping? Because not being Muslim is a status offense.
Jefferson and Adams asked the crucial question and got this answer from Tripoli's envoy to London
"It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every Muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise."[ Wikipedia]
Faithful Muslims have a right and duty to plunder and enslave us. I gave you links to the source of the doctrine. I gave you a quote which illustrates the application of that doctrine. "Its Islam, stupid". No 'radicalism', no 'extremism'; Islam! Its time to drop the p.c. adjectives & pretense; to name and shame the enemy. It is long overdue, so why not do it?
What are we doing having relationships with the Muslim world anyway? Do we have a relationship with the Catholic world? Do we have a relationship with the Buddhist world? Do we have a relationship with the Jewish world? Well, if we did, Obama's taken care of that.
As a Muslim, President Obama has a relationship to Islam and Muslims; he is one of them. He has a right and duty to plunder and enslave us. Yes, Rush, we have an Ambassador to the Vatican. But Islam's relationship to us is inimical. We need to reciprocate.
Now we can't call 'em Islamic radicals. Now we have to have a relationship with the Islamic radical world -- sorry -- Muslim world.
We can call them what they are: Muslims. Their relationship to us is the same as that of Germany & Japan in WW2.
Shrub could not bring himself to name and shame the enemy. Nor would he specify the ideological differences we have with Islam. President Obama won't name and shame the enemy. Nor will he list our most important differences with Islam any more than Shrub would. But, not being President, I will.
