Islam is a Trojan Horse
17 Apr, 2008
This past Friday, Yunis al-Astal, a leading Muslim cleric and Hamas member of the Palestinian parliament, declared on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV that "the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital," would soon be conquered by Islam and Rome become an advance post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas.”
The Islam hydra, with Saudi Arabia and the oil-money bloated
Emirs and Sheiks of the Persian Gulf leading the Sunni charge from
one side and the ender-of-the-world bomb-seeking Shiite of the
Islamic Republic of Iran with its proxies of Hamas, Lebanon
Hezbollah and the Sadrists in Iraq closing from the other side will
devour the free world.
Free people: are you listening?
Free people: do you care?
Free people: are you doing anything?
Disguised as religion, Islam has penetrated the democracies with
the aim of replacing civility and liberty with the barbarism of
theocracy and Sharia. Islam’s multi-prong attack aims to destroy all
that liberty offers.
It is generally assumed that religion addresses issues of
importance to daily life as well as matters that transcend it.
Religion claims to exercise a civilizing influence by ordering the
social life and promoting spirituality, as well as advancing an
array of human virtues. Zoroaster, for instance, based his faith on
the triad of goodly thoughts, goodly speech and goodly deeds. Moses
framed the fundamentals of his faith in the Ten Commandments, and
Jesus placed love at the core of his faith.
Yet, all is not well with religion. Purveyors of some religions
advocate and promote ideas and practices that are harmful to the
general well-being of mankind. It is imperative that a society
institutes measures that guard against any and all organizations and
ideologies, be they religious or otherwise that harms it.
As things stand now, our lives are governed by numerous boards at
all levels of government, business, and community. All these boards
are charged with the responsibility of looking after the welfare of
the people they serve. The Food and Drug Administration, for
instance, must pass on the safety and quality of the food we eat;
the Aviation Safety Board works to ensure safe flights; a local
school board strives to create the environment that best serves the
education and safety needs of the pupils. Every community and
business of any size is served by boards.
There are, however, no oversight boards that would check against
things that contaminate the mind and present a clear threat of
unraveling our democracy’s social compact as we know and cherish it.
Shouldn’t these dangers to our beliefs and way of life be monitored
and combated or should they be given a pass to work their damage?
Presently, America is faced with a formidable enemy in a Trojan
horse called Islam. This imminent danger makes it imperative to
revisit the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and make the
necessary changes to legally defeat Islam’s subversion of the
Muslims in Western democracies, most of them escapees of the
misery of Islamic countries, exhibit such incredible gall and
audacity as to shamelessly demand that their benevolent hosts
surrender their liberty and legalize and adopt the Sharia in their
The Muslims’ presence in countries such as Canada, Great Britain,
the Netherlands and Sweden represents the tip of the sword of the
Islamists protruding from the Trojan horse.
Once Sharia is recognized to any extent, it will reach out to
rule, not only on matters that concern Muslims, but also those that
may involve a Muslim and non-Muslim. Under Sharia, a Muslim man
married to a non-Muslim woman is able to divorce the woman at will
and automatically have custody of the children.
America, with a long history of protecting religious freedom,
still clings to the “hands off” practice of leaving alone any
doctrine or practice billed as religion. A thorny problem is in
deciding what constitutes a religion and who is to make that call.
The dictionary supplies a sociologically useless definition for
religion: “The expression of man’s belief in and reverence for a
superhuman power recognized as the creator and governor of the
universe.” Just about anyone or any group under this definition can
start a religion, and they indeed do—and some do so at significant
costs to others.
Islam was birthed by primitives of some 1400 years ago and over
time invaded much of the world at the point of the sword. Presently,
Islamists, with their treasuries flush with petrodollars, are in a
great position to realize their perennial dream of bringing the
world under the rule of Muhammad’s Ummeh.
On the one hand, Pakistan is already a nuclear power and the
Islamic Republic of Iran aims to be one before very long. On the
other hand, Muslim governments and wealthy Sheikhs are funding
Islamic schools, centers and front organizations in the West to work
from within at the unraveling of the non-Islamic democratic systems.
In a parallel attack, the “Legal Islam” is exploiting every
provision of the law in free societies to promote Islam and silence
its critics through expensive legal shenanigans.
Islam is incompatible with democracy and subversive of the way of
life that blesses this nation. It is imperative that we fight
Islamofascism with the same determination that we fought other
enemies of freedom such as Nazism, Fascism, and Communism. It is,
therefore, imperative that the Constitution be revisited in such a
manner that it no longer grants a pass to any cult simply calling
itself a religion.
Bluntly speaking, no one can be a faithful Muslim and an American
at the same time. As more and more Muslims arrive in non-Islamic
lands, as they reproduce with great fecundity, as they convert the
disenchanted and minorities, and as petrodollar-flush Muslims and
Muslim treasuries supply generous funds, Muslims gather more power
to undermine the democratic rule.
The hydra of Islam is lashing out by its jihadists, sophisticated
and well-funded lawyers, terrorist groups, and terror-sponsoring
governments who have the bomb and those that are racing non-stop to
acquire the ultimate weapon. There is no time to waste. Steadfastly
confronting Islam is the only way to defeat a fanatical enemy who
does not believe in negotiation or compromise. For Islam, it is
winner take all. And the way that permissive, oblivious, and
well-meaning free societies are reacting does not bode well for
Islam must be recognized for what it is: a Trojan horse carrying in its belly what will assuredly slaughter all who stand everything that is precious to free people.
