My reply to “Islamophobia in the West The Home-Sown Threat”

The following comes from a jihadi website that rejoices in Islamic terrorism against the American Military and our Allies in various countries. They also are quite opinionated with posts like this…

“Islamophobia in the West: The Home-Sown Threat “


“Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.” Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials”

“On August 17th, 2007 Raed Jarrar, a California-based Iraqi peace activist and US Permanent Resident, was forced to cover a t-shirt he was wearing that said WE WILL NOT BE SILENT in Arabic and English. He was informed by JFK Airport security officials and Jet Blue Airways that he could not board the plane to return to his home in California unless he complied.””

“On August 9th, the principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy, Debbie Almontaser, resigned under pressure after she was lambasted by the media for publicly explaining that the word “intifada” literally means “shaking off” in Arabic. The New York Sun had been relentlessly hostile calling the school a place that could “groom future radicals.” August 15th marked the release of an NYPD document entitled, Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat[1]. Billed as a study, the 70-plus page article is a mound of rhetoric and public manipulation that comes directly from the pages of Hitler’s Germany and is an attempt to instigate fear and arouse further suspicion of Muslims in New York City. It is particularly interesting to note that it seems to be a deliberate attempt to justify the arrest and persecution of us, The Islamic Thinkers Society: the allegation being that…”even in the virtual world, this organization successfully recruits, indoctrinates, and trains aspiring extremists (p. 72). We are free from all of these accusations. On the contrary, our struggle is intellectual & political and will remain that way despite the fear-monger’s suggestion that we are fast-approaching their critical JIHADIZATION stage included in the report.”

“ The inspiration for the T-shirt worn by Raed Jarrar was the White Rose movement of Nazi-Germany. White Rose (German: die Weiße Rose) was a non-violent resistance group consisting of a number of students from the University of Munich and their philosophy professor. The group became known for an anonymous leaflet campaign, lasting from June 1942 until February 1943, that called for active opposition to German dictator Adolf Hitler’s regime. The core members of the group were arrested by the Gestapo, convicted, and executed by beheading in 1943. Today, the members of the White Rose are honored in Germany as great heroes who opposed the Third Reich in the face of deadly danger for such resistance. They had signed off on several of their documents with the words, WE WILL NOT BE SILENT and showed bold courageousness in a time of horrendous atrocities the likes of which have not been seen again until today. “

“American fascism is slowly gaining progress and recent developments in the American epic reveal that the great beast is more vulnerable economically, politically and militarily than it supposed. The consequence of this vulnerability has spurred, similar to the progression of Nazi-Germany, increased fascist activity and especially against that perceived enemy, the fundamentalist Muslims. Under increasing pressure and lack of commitment and support from the Muslim and non-Muslim community we will continue to engage in our struggle and oppose oppression throughout the world. We are merely guilty of taking our religion seriously and of holding views apart from the mainstream. Still, many are those who have suffered before for similar convictions. Furthermore, we take great esteem in the life works of visionaries like Syed Qutb who claimed, ‘Indeed our words will remain lifeless, barren, devoid of any passion, until we die as a result of these words… But, to the contrary, we do not pose any physical threat to the American people and only offer our minority views because we believe in them and hold them as divine. It is our conviction that like Pharaoh and the disbelieving oppressors before them, fascism by its very nature is bound to perish. Therefore, We Will Not be Silent!”

“Therefore expound openly what thou art commanded, and turn away from those who join false gods with Allah.” (15:94)”

“Prior to the revelation of this magnificent verse, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had called the tribes and his kindred collectively to the peace, justice and truth of Islam, but as Allah (Most High) sent down the command for him to proclaim publicly his message and as Muhammad (PBUH) and his few followers at that time took to the streets insulting the false gods of the Quraish and commanding justice and forbidding the evil idolatrous practices in the society, it was inevitable that the evil-doers would revolt and plot and plan viciously against them. They started with slander and taunting and called Muhammad (PBUH) insane and bewitched. They ridiculed and mocked the converts who were not of nobility. They distorted and lied about the actual teachings of Islam. Their intellectuals challenged the validity of the Quran. And eventually, after realizing that none of these tactics prevented the growth of the religion, they resorted to torture and punishment. The tactics of the oppressors and disbelievers continue today, and this situation is nothing other than an increase in persecution and oppression and an alteration of tactic. Still, inshAllah, they will not be victorious.”

“We can only hope to imitate the methodology of the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) companions at this stage and seek to take from their example in response to these times of potential attack. During the Pledge of Aqaba the members of the Ansar, those helpers of the Muslims and those promised to be loved by Allah, pledged to protect and promote Islam. Ahmad reported in his Saheeh that Jabir (RAA) narrated in regard to the pledge that: “We said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! To what shall we pledge?” The Prophet (PBUH) answered: “

“1) To listen and obey in all difficulty and ease. “

“2) To spend in plenty as well as in scarcity. “

“3) To enjoin good and forbid evil. “

“4) In Allah’s service, you will fear the censure of none. “

“5) To aid me when I come to you, and protect me from anything you protect yourself, your spouses and children from. “

“Then Paradise is in store for you!”

“It is high time that Muslims follow this divine pledge and not fear the blame of the blamers. There is no need to justify or water down the religion of Islam. All of it is revelation and is quite unlike anything the West conceives of as they have adopted a view that assumes religion and contemporary science and progress are not compatible. They have assumed that religion is but tradition and continue to consider anyone who takes it seriously as fundamentalist or fanatic. “

“Ray Kelly, Commissioner of the NYPD, stated that “Many of these plots and cases that we perceived as being sort of an outside threat, really actually are more of an inside threat in the sense that radicalization drove them.[2]” “The threat is real; this is not some bogey man we are creating here,” said Rand Corporation terrorism expert Brian Jenkins, who reviewed and contributed to the NYPD report…”There are individuals who are proselytizing, inciting angry young men to go down this path.” The report identified mosques, bookstores, cafes, prisons and flop houses as what it calls “radicalization incubators” that provide “extremist fodder or fuel for radicalization.” The leader of an American Arab civil rights group labeled the NYPD report as “unfortunate stereotyping” and at odds with federal law enforcement findings that the threat from homegrown terrorists was minimal. The Islamic Thinkers Society was given a full page analysis on page 72 of the report and the conclusion read that “Thus, even in the virtual world, this organization successfully recruits, indoctrinates, and trains aspiring extremists.” And then, lo and behold, the curious reader flips to page 73 where they are introduced to the JIHADIZATION STAGE of the NYPD report. This stage is unlike others in that, “While the other phases of radicalization may take place gradually, over two to three years, this jihadization component can be a very rapid process, taking only a few months, or even weeks to run its course.” And so this disease is progressive and leads instantly to terrorist behavior and therefore must be prevented at all costs regardless of law that holds one must actually do something criminal to be labeled as one.”

“These attempts to label the organization as one that is prone, apt, and planning for a terrorist attack serve only to justify intervention at STAGE 3 – INDOCTRINATION. This may subsequently set a precedent in “fighting terrorism at home” by making one guilty by thought and association prior to even engaging in activity. It would also relieve the NYC mass from the burden of being challenged intellectually and politically: so much for free speech and freedom of religion. We brand the report a conspiracy and an attempt by the establishment to use us as guinea pigs for the further usurpation of domestic rights and liberties.”

“These efforts resemble the attempts the disbelievers of Quraish used against the Muslims and show a progression in animosity and hatred for the truth. It is their incessant utilization of their resources against Islam that eventually leads to their destruction as Allah ‘Azza wa Jall says,”

“The Unbelievers spend their wealth to hinder (man) from the path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend; but in the end they will have (only) regrets and sighs; at length they will be overcome: and the Unbelievers will be gathered together to Hell.”(8:36)”

“Economically the American god-dollar is in chaos with the currency being printed like a newspaper in order to solve the bottoming out of the housing sector and the inaccessibility to credit. Eventually this will become a serious cause of concern for the citizenry and much like Nazi Germany may eventually be utilized as a justification for austere economic policies that further decrease the American quality of life. Politically the nation is encumbered by an administration with 16 months left in office and a determination to promote increased war and more destruction. They are at the same time faced with an election which will certainly spell doom for Muslims regardless of the outcome as neo-liberal policy differs from neo-conservative ideology only in that they wait to stab you from behind rather than directly from the front. Culturally, the American way of life resembles the fall of Rome as a bread and circus economy has deadened all art and culture and beauty is reserved for ‘shock and awe.’ Americans are dying earlier, suffering from depression and drug addiction at exorbitant rates and rape, murder, violence and subsequent incarceration plague the society in greater numbers than anywhere else in the world. Still, their priorities are quite easily confirmed. In early August the US Congress approved a new $460 billion defense budget with the full support of the Democrats by a vote of 395 to 13. The US military budget is now larger than the military budgets of the next fourteen biggest spenders combined, and over eight times larger than the second largest military spender, China. The budget did not include nuclear weapons research, maintenance or production, which is in the Department of Energy budget, nor does it include the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan which are largely funded through extra-budgetary supplements, which in 2007 amounted to $120 billion? So in reality the total US defense budget is closer to $680 billion out of a total federal budget of $2.9 trillion. The department of defense will spend more of US Taxpayer’s money then any other department, even more then the department of social security. Yes indeed, things in America are quite like Nazi Germany and increasingly so.”

“These threats of homegrown terrorism are bound to stir up provocation and loud outcries from the citizenry for the arrest of Muslims who have entered a phase of early conversion to fundamentalist Islam. One envisions an era where any Muslim who gets serious about his religion and adopts the same view that millions of academics, intellectuals and concerned citizens hold, that American Empire needs to be stopped immediately, shall be placed under surveillance and, or arrest. Therefore, an internal threat to the homeland can help sedate more of the public who still witnesses small pockets of individuals working hard to stop the War in Iraq and prevent war in Iran. Arrests at home may help justify the stripping of domestic rights and deter attention away from their own continuous terrorism, their killing of innocent civilians, women and children especially, across the globe all in the name of the Global War on Terror and all while pointing their fingers at “homegrown terrorists” as a justification for their crimes.”

“They rip the Muslims of wealth and natural resources. They attack the religion. They kill our brothers, sisters and children. They compromise our honor and our dignity and dare we utter words of protest, we are called terrorists. Rather than hide in confinement and conceal the fact that one loves justice and believes in the struggle against oppression, why not take to the streets and loudly and proudly express the view that no one is planning to strap explosives to themselves and blow one’s self up, but that no one is going to sit idly by and watch the massacre of millions of Muslims the world over either. The best thing America can do is improve the social problems facing its own society and stay in its own land far away from Muslim soil. As long as America continues in its imperialist path Muslims will resist. They must resist. It is their way of life and no matter how much money Bush or local authorities pay sheiks and imams to ignore the Quran it is right there for all to read and understand. We ask Allah for the strength and courage to continue resistance despite their lies against us.”

“They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allah’s Light (with which Muhammad SAW has been sent – Islamic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kafiroon (disbelievers) hate (it).(9:32)”


“Certainly the Christian-right and conservatives would applaud the arrest, detention and conviction of a non-violent group that holds anti-American Empire views. But the fact is that the general citizenry of the country would probably turn a blind eye and especially because the group was Islamist. Still, our reply is that the Quran is the word of God and that Islam is a superior way of life, that Muhammad (PBUH) is Allah’s prophet and final Messenger (PBUH). We hold these truths to be self-evident for those that think objectively and independently and we warn America of an impending doom if it does not stop oppressing and killing Muslims across the globe. We will continue to insert our views into the public debate and hope that we are not convicted on some pre-conceived intention, some pre-emptive engagement as you accuse us of progression toward jihadization. We do not believe that it is the US constitution that gives us the right to challenge intellectually and rationally what we perceive to be oppression and injustice. We consider it a right bestowed upon us by our Creator. We do not see where the politicization of Islam contradicts any religions teachings and we will continue to strive for the return of an Islamic Khilafah, the sovereignty of government, and the spread of Islam across the globe. There is no compulsion in our religion. We are not here to hurt anyone and we are quite aware that you consider us strange and that our view contradicts with the status quo. So too, did the White Rose organization in Nazi-Germany. So too, did our Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) message. You persecute us, under lies and deception, and we reply as those before us did and those who are sure to follow.”

Oh boo hoo… The Muslim is the one who is ‘persecuted and afflicted’… Yes I realize there might be those who say… “Your being a **hole you retarded racist!” Oh really? Take a look at thier website under ‘islamic perspectives’…

Here’s a sampling of thier jihadi posts kids…

“Hamas! Correct the Foundations, Have Fear of Allah and not People!”

“44 Ways of Supporting Jihad”

“Boycott Israel Campaign… Brands & labels to Boycott”

“Born to kill….!!!”

“The Ruling on physical Jihad, The ruling on jihad for women and Jihad with One’s wealth is compulsory for the rich”

“The 10th Protocol Of The Jews”

“Women In Jilbab”-Shaped Toilet Bowl In Israel”

“The Termination of Israel; A Qur’aanic fact”

“Physical jihad is the pinnacle of Islam, and some scholars regarded it as the sixth pillar of Islam”

“Deen Al-Islam and the Question of Civilians”

“Democracy (False Religion)”

“Fighting for the Cause of Allah (Jihad)”

“The Two Cousins: Da’wah and Jihad “

“O Muslims! Eject America, The Cause Of The Mischief And Strife That You Suffer Today “

“Jihad Will Remain Until The Day Of Judgment”

“Who is Kaafir?”

So let’s consider this authors hypocrisy…

The author believes that they are being unfairly judged because they are muslim and that the above posts are merely their way of protest.

And yet as shown above they willingly call for destruction to Israel and call upon their fellow muslims to mujahedeen training to kill non muslims irregardless of Faith, Race, or political party.

And that’s their form of protest?

So called ‘Islamaphobia’ is not caused by non muslim ‘ignorance’ of islam it’s muslim jihadi posts and the violence reported by muslims themselves.

IF a concerned person who doesn’t understand Islam reads their materials online or finding a copy of the quran in the bookstore reads it and understands that islams teachings are contrary to Western life …and asks themselves one important question. “How will this Islamist ideology / system affect my life, religious beliefs, lifestyle?”

To answer the above muslim writer… you write about ‘islamaphobia’ and yet also include the above ‘islamic perspectives’ posts on their website. You aren’t practicing a mere religion it’s a entire system that takes away Freedoms from non muslims and simply fuel the fires to stop political islam in NON muslim countries.

You complain that we are creating ‘propaganda’ against Islam. Am I as a non muslim the one who posted the jihadi junk on your website? NO I didn’t. So called Islamaphobia is not a misunderstanding of islam but an understanding that if islamic sharia laws and the cultural / system were to take over the lands we live in our lives would end. Islams long and bloody history is a demonstration that good people can turn bad quickly. The islamic propaganda on your website is evidence that you as a muslim are not for humanity but islams low opinion of non muslims and those secular muslims who recognize that without change there will be no islam left.

Your false accusations and your general hatred of people who aren’t like you make you not only hypocrites but racists.

As I have said before when dealing with my own ‘islamaphobia’…
