The War Against Israel Is All About Islam, and Islam Is All About Terror

By The Geller Report

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is likely to be more responsible than anyone else, other than Old Joe Biden, for the jihad war on Israel, so he above all people should know what it’s all about. On Saturday morning, he made it clear yet again for those inattentive students in the back of the classroom, tweeting: “Palestine and Gaza are manifestations of Islam’s power.

Palestine and Gaza are manifestations of Islam’s power.

— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) October 14, 2023

“Palestine” and Gaza are entities in which jihad terrorism is celebrated and the desire to kill Jews and destroy Israel is systematically inculcated into children from the earliest ages. As Khamenei reminds us, that situation and this present war, are all about Islam.

There it is. The slaughterers are telling you it’s Islam.

But if you say it or quote it, you’re “islamophobic” or “racist” (Islam is not a race) and you are smeared, defamed, libeled. pic.twitter.com/Ss0auALKV0

If Khamenei’s words weren’t enough, the lesson was reinforced yet again when an Islamic State (ISIS) flag was found in the wake of the Oct. 7 jihad massacres in Israel. The Times of Israel reported Wednesday that “a Telegram channel called South First Responders, which has been distributing shocking footage from scenes on kibbutzim and other areas devastated in Saturday’s attack, claims that soldiers found an flag of the Islamic State terror group on the vest of a terrorist killed during an assault on Kibbutz Sufa, near the Gaza border.”

The report goes on to warn us that “the picture’s authenticity cannot be immediately confirmed.” All right. But there is nothing implausible about the idea that an Islamic State jihadi was among the Hamas jihadis who did the killing in Israel. The establishment media will never come close to informing people of the fact, but there are absolutely no ideological differences between Hamas and the Islamic State. They have the same beliefs, the same goals, and the same methodology. Both are dedicated to establishing the rule of Islam and the hegemony of Islam everywhere they can, and ultimately over the entire world.

Those who assume that Hamas is simply a “resistance” movement against Israel should note the words of Hamas top dog Mahmoud al-Zahar in Dec. 2022: “We are not talking about liberating our land alone – but we believe in what our Prophet Muhammad said: ‘Allah drew the ends of the world near one another for my sake, and I have seen its eastern and western ends. The dominion of my nation would reach those ends that have been drawn near me.’” Al-Zahar believes this to be a prediction of the coming Islamic domination of the world: “The entire 510 million square kilometers of Planet Earth will come under [a system] where there is no injustice, no oppression, no treachery, no Zionism, no treacherous Christianity, and no killings and crimes, like those being committed against the Palestinians, and against the Arabs in all the Arab countries – in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and other countries.”

No ISIS leader would find anything to quibble with in that. Nor would ISIS look askance at the numerous atrocities Hamas committed in Israel. Both groups have the same guiding principle: “Make ready for them all that you can of force and of warhorses, so that by them you may strike terror in the enemy of Allah and your enemy…” (Qur’an 8:60) Nowadays the jihadis have bombs and rocket launchers, not warhorses, but the goal is the same: strike terror in Allah’s enemies.

Terror is not a practice that “extremist” Muslims engage in while “moderate” eschew it; terror is the primary way that the Qur’an directs Muslims to gain and enforce the submission of their foes. The idea on Oct. 7 was to terrify Israelis into thinking not only that resistance to the jihadis was useless, but that the whole enterprise of Israel itself was unsustainable, and that they should go live elsewhere. The Islamic State operated in the same way in Iraq and Syria, and now continues to do so in its operations in Gaza.

Khamenei is right: “Palestine” and Gaza are manifestations of Islam’s power because Islam’s power is entirely based upon terror. Acts such as what we saw in Israel on Oct. 7 strike terror into the perceived enemies of Islam. The killings and death threats over cartoons and desecrations of the Qur’an strike terror in those who would exercise the freedom of expression. The death penalty for apostasy strikes terror into Muslims who might be getting skeptical about their religion. The allowance for the beating of disobedient women strikes terror in females who might long to live as freely as their sisters in the West live. “Palestine and Gaza are manifestations of Islam’s power,” and that power is terror. The key to defeating this is to refuse to be afraid, and to continue to stand for what is good and true and right, come what may.

FLORIDA: Remembering the 2021 Hamas Rally in Orlando at the Lake Eola Amphitheater

By Dr. Rich Swier

Watch this video please—these people should never have been admitted into the U.S.

See how many of these potential terrorists are cowards wearing masks.

Look how they try to block out the person videotaping them — where the hell are the Orlando Police who issued these pro-Palestinians a permit to demonstrate? Don’t see them anywhere in this video.

Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar should not be U.S. Representatives.

On May 15, 2021, Rasha Mubarak, and her Israel and Jewish hating Palestinians along with their Marxist Democrat supporters descended on Lake Eola Park in downtown Orlando to demonize the day Israel was granted statehood by the United Nations, calling it the NAKBA.

At 2:42 in this video Rasha Mubarak, protest organizer, on a loudspeaker, singles out a cameraman, in the front row, as a Zionist, Provocateur, then instructs the people there to “cover him,” and they did. During this time, I was hit, bumped, elbowed, and pushed out of a public space against my will. Due to Rasha Mubarak’s incitement to violence against me, I was forced to move or risk increased assault.

Nakba is an Arabic term meaning ‘The great catastrophe.’ The great catastrophe is that Israel survived the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.

So you are probably asking, what is this NAKBA?

Israel was granted statehood by the United Nations on May 14, 1948. On May 15th, 5 Arab countries tried to wipe Israel off the face of the planet…and failed.

The Arab-Israeli War of 1948 broke out when five Arab nations invaded the brand new State of Israel and lost the war in a humiliating defeat. Israel’s Arab neighbors tried to destroy Israel again in the 1967 Six-Day War and suffered another humiliating defeat. Israel’s Arab neighbors tried again to destroy Israel in the hard-fought 1973 Yom Kippur War and failed. Muhammad hated the Jews 1400 years ago, and now the followers of Islam got humiliated by the Jews repeatedly.

Arab Muslim and HAMAS Palestinian terrorists have been conducting bombings, knifings, shootings, stoning’s, arson, BDS, terrorist operations non-stop for 73 years in Israel. The motivation for all this Palestinian violence is to never have to have another NAKBA Rally again, as articulated by Rasha Mubarak in this video.

The NAKBA is a call for Israel’s destruction from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. These psychopaths openly dream of snuffing out every citizen of all races and religions they deem as collaborators with CITIZENS OF OR JUST LIVING IN ISRAEL.

Video from 9-Years Ago Shows the Real Relationship Between Islam and Divergent Sexual Appetites

By Vlad Tepes Blog

Going through some old hard drives, we are finding some amazing examples of how not too too long ago, media actually reported some uncomfortable truths.

The following video is from 2014 and shows how Nigeria was putting four homosexual men on trial for their sexual activities, and if guilty, stone them to death. The BBC clip also does not hide the fact that this is a fundamentally Islamic view. Something we are basically made to think is a hate crime today. That is, to portray Islam as it actually is, somehow has become a hate crime.

Islam, as we know, must be seen as a co-victim of White, Christian, Imperialist, Capitalist European culture. 

Which is why when Muslims lead protests against SOGI and so on, media, and perhaps especially Canadian media, will hide the Islamic aspect of the protests by ignoring them if small enough to ignore, or imputing the motive on far-right-extremists.

Trudeau even went as far as trying to talk a Muslim against SOGI that he was a victim of “right wing Americans” and that his belief that his children should not be sterilized by the state had nothing to do with Islam or his own thinking.

Qatar Enables Hamas’ War Against Israel thumbnail

Qatar Enables Hamas’ War Against Israel

By Middle East Media Research Institute

The Qatar-Hamas alliance goes back years. Qatar has financed Hamas’ military buildup and harbored its leaders, who live in Doha to this day. Qatar is also enabling Hamas’ current war against Israel, launched with a large-scale surprise attack on October 7, 2023 in which over 1,300 Israelis were killed, over 100 were abducted, including women, children, infants and elderly people, and thousands were wounded. (See MEMRI reports: A Statement By The President And Founder Of MEMRI On The Hamas Einsatzgruppen Attack;  Netanyahu And Qatar Would Share Responsibility For An Imminent Regional War). Hamas’ leaders are managing this war from Doha and conveying their messages via Qatar’s Al-Jazeera television channel, while the Qatari media expresses unreserved support for Hamas and its terrorist actions.

This report reviews the expressions of Qatar’s alliance with Hamas.

Hamas Leaders Are Managing The War Against Israel From Qatar

As stated, the heads of the Hamas terror organization live in Doha and operate there without hindrance. In fact, on October 7, 2023, the day of the deadly Hamas attack in southern Israel, the Hamas leadership held a meeting in Doha. Videos from this meeting circulated on social media on the morning of the attack show Hamas leaders watching footage of it on Al-Jazeera and holding a “prayer of gratitude.” Among the leaders seen in the video are the head of Hamas’ political bureau, Isma’il Haniya; Haniya’s media advisor Taher Al-Nounou; Haniya’s deputy and Hamas’ leader in the West Bank Saleh Al-‘Arouri; Hamas’ leader abroad, Khaled Mash’al,  and Khalil Al-Haya, Hamas’ chief of relations with the Arab and Islamic world and the movement’s deputy leader in Gaza. In the video Haniya is heard saying: “Let us prostrate [in prayer]. These images were… See the guys with a new jeep. Look. Look. The Israeli jeep… Let’s do it. This is a prostration of gratitude for this victory. Allah, please bestow your support and glory on our people and nation. Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah be praised.”

View excerpts from the video on MEMRI TV:

On October 14 Hamas’ leaders made another public appearance in Doha when they met with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, who was visiting the country. The meeting was attended by Haniya, Al-Haya, Mash’al’s deputy Moussa Abu Marzouq and Zaher Jabarin, Hamas’ chief of prisoner affairs.

The editor of the Saudi daily Independent Arabiya, ‘Adwan Al-Ahmari, noted in an October 9 interview with France24 that Hamas’ leaders are not in Gaza but are living in luxury hotels in Doha and operating from there in the service of Iran and its leader Khamenei.[1]

Qatar Aired Hamas’ Declarations Of War

Qatar’s Al-Jazeera channel serves as a mouthpiece for Hamas’ messaging. For example, on the day of Hamas’ recent wide-scale attack, it aired the statement in which Hamas’ military chief Muhammad Deif declared the start Operation Al-Aqsa Flood (Hamas’ name for the attack) and called on Palestinians to kill Israelis. It also aired a statement by Isma’il Haniya, who likewise urged the Palestinians in the West Bank, as well as Israeli Arabs and all Palestinians abroad, to join the fray.

Qatari Media Expresses Unreserved Support For Hamas’ Attack, Holds Israel Responsible For It

The Qatari media has expressed complete support for Hamas’ deadly attack on Israel and glee at the latter’s plight. The editor of the Qatari daily Al-Sharq, Jaber Al-Harmi, described the attack as a “heroic operation” that has changed the rules of the game and ushered in “a new phase in the military confrontation” ahead of “the complete liberation of Palestinian soil.” Palestinian journalist Samir Al-Barghouti, who, in his column in the Qatari daily Al-Watan often praises terror against Israel,[2] likened the Hamas attack to the Prophet Muhammad’s attack on the Jews of Khaybar in the year 628.[3]

An Al-Jazeera report about the attack featured footage of slain Israeli soldiers, showed Israeli soldiers and civilians being captured, and rejoiced that Hamas had “destroyed Israel’s iron image.”

Qatar’s Years-Long Support For Hamas

It should be noted that Qatar extends unreserved political and economic support to Hamas, and its media, including Al-Jazeera, have for years been inciting terror and violence, including against Israel and Israeli civilians.

Biden’s Senior Director for Intelligence Programs is a Palestinian thumbnail

Biden’s Senior Director for Intelligence Programs is a Palestinian

By Dr. Rich Swier

Did you know that the Obama 3/Beijing Joe Biden regime’s key intelligence advisor and filter between the U.S. intelligence agencies; the National Security Council and Biden is a Palestinian?

This is a total conflict of interest leading to Obama 3/Biden’s priorities to support the enemies of Israel over Israelis.

How do you think this helped Hamas to murder 1,300 Israelis, maim many more and most likely killed most of the 25 US citizens kidnapped by Hamas?

Biden appoints Palestinian American to key intelligence role

Maher Bitar served in the National Security Council under former President Barack Obama, as director for Israeli and Palestinian affairs.

(January 25, 2021 / JNS)

U.S. President Joe Biden has appointed Palestinian American Maher Bitar to the role of senior director for intelligence programs at the National Security Council, according to a report in the political journalism site Politico.

Bitar served in the National Security Council under former President Barack Obama, as director for Israeli and Palestinian affairs.

He earned his master’s degree at Oxford University, writing his dissertation on forced migration at the school’s Refugee Studies Center. He has worked with the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees in Jerusalem.

Since 2017, Bitar served as general counsel for Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee. As top legal adviser for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), he was deeply involved in the first impeachment of former President Donald Trump.

As senior director for intelligence programs, Bitar will receive sensitive information from intelligence agencies and coordinate covert operations between the intelligence communities and the White House. The office of the senior director also houses the server that stores the most sensitive classified information.

Speaking to Politico, Schiff called Bitar “a superb choice,” saying, “I can’t think of anyone more suited to the role.”

Hamas Attacks are the Third Worst U.S. Death Toll from Islamic Terror thumbnail

Hamas Attacks are the Third Worst U.S. Death Toll from Islamic Terror

By Jihad Watch

22 Americans are confirmed murdered.

The numbers killed in the Hamas attacks in Israel continue to climb. What started in the hundreds has now passed 1,200. And is expected to go on climbing. It’s taking time for Israel to fully restore control over some of the communities invaded by Islamic terrorists. Identifying and counting the bodies has also become a long and grueling process. Some bodies were burned or badly mutilated.

The currently announced total is 22 Americans murdered in the attacks. This number will likely increase.

It is however the single deadliest death toll for Americans from Islamic terrorism since the Pulse Massacre in Florida in 2016. Beginning with 9/11, this would appear to be the third deadliest Islamic mass murder of American civilians in this century.

Hopefully the numbers don’t rise any further, but it’s possible they will.

At the moment, Israelis are still waiting on burying their dead. Bodies are still being turned up. Since Hamas Jihadis torched buildings to force families out into the open where they could kill them, it’s possible that some bodies may never be properly identified. Israeli rescue groups like ZAKA are expert at locating even small fragments of bone and tissue for burial and identification purpose, but there has never been anything on this scale in Israel. The closest parallel is 9/11 and it took a long time to identify the dead.

VIDEO: Remembering the July 20, 2014 CAIR ‘We are Jihad. We are HAMAS’ Rally in Miami, Florida

By Defend The Border

We republish this July 20, 2014 video taken in Miami titled CAIR, FL “We are Jihad. We are HAMAS”.

We should have listened then, we must listen now!

“I’m gonna kill you mother fucker, you and the all Israelis!” “You want a push, I’ll show you a push!” He’s a Zionist, this guy is not one of us, he’s a Zionist!” (code for Jew).

On Sunday, July 20, 2014, these violent and hateful words were combined with physical assaults against an innocent Jewish reporter in Miami, Florida. On this beautiful sunny Florida day the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) crossed a cultural and maybe legal red line by sponsoring a HAMAS demonstration where this man, a Jewish reporter working undercover was identified and attacked by an angry crowd of HAMAS jihadists.

WATCH: CAIR, FL “We are Jihad. We are HAMAS”

During the confrontation one of the HAMAS pulled out an improvised weapon and moved in to stab the Jewish reporter before someone stopped him while another CAIR jihadist made a clear, direct and profound threat to kill the reporter. All of this is in our seventh episode of our special series on the war in Israel, Operation: Protective Edge, An Inside Look – Destroy HAMAS.

Earlier in this war, The United West went on record predicting violence in the streets of America by angry Muslims, particularly those who take the teachings of Mohammed very seriously. As night follows day, the true believing Muslim understands that the war in Gaza is a battle between Allah’s “chosen warriors,” the HAMAS and the infidel Jews, supported worldwide by the infidel Christians. In that Islam is a borderless political system there is no difference between confrontations in Gaza
City or confrontations in Paris, London or Miami.

This unifying war doctrine necessarily leads to Islamic violence in the West because Islam does not ultimately respect Western law. The net result of this worldview is the shocking way in which an investigative reporter for our organization, The United West, is attacked while lawfully doing his job, on the public right-of-way in the south Florida city of Miami.

One of the breaking news elements of this story is that CAIR, the self-proclaimed “civil-rights” organization for Muslims sponsored an outright HAMAS demonstration where the participants, when not assaulting the reporter, were shouting historic death threats to Jews and shouting complete and comprehensive unity with the HAMAS, as in “WE ARE HAMAS!”

If you follow the work of The United West or Frank Gaffney, Center for Security Policy, you know for several years we have explained that a Federal court has established a harmonious relationship between CAIR and the HAMAS, thus for practical purposes, CAIR is HAMAS. Now, clearly established by the evidence we present in this show, CAIR is indeed, the HAMAS, by their own words.

This new public admittance by CAIR raises many questions that need serious investigation and serious answers form both Federal authorities and from CAIR officials. In that the HAMAS is a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) designated so by the Department of State during President Clinton’s Administration, does CAIR’s sponsorship of violent HAMAS demonstrations on the public right-of-way violate any legal element of the FTO statute? If leaders of CAIR, including Nihad Awad and Hassan Shibly, now public support the HAMAS, should they enjoy the access they have to President Obama’s White House and other American institutions of influence?

The Muslim Brotherhood is another national security factor that now comes front and center in light of this HAMAS demonstration in Miami. On July 24, Rep. Michele Bachmann introduced a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. The bill, also known as the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014, will “impose sanctions against persons who knowingly provide material support or resources to the Muslim Brotherhood or its affiliates, associated groups, or agents, and for other purposes.”

The evidence is as simple as reading the HAMAS Charter – Article Two:

The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine.

So, follow the simple logic here. If the Muslim Brotherhood is indeed designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the US Department of State and if the HAMAS is a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood and if HAMAS is CAIR, then does it not follow that CAIR is a part of the Muslim Brotherhood? Anyway you spread this humus you got CAIR in a whole heap of trouble, plain and simple. Folks, its time CAIR is exposed for being exactly what it presented itself to be on that street corner in Miami, a wing of the terrorist organization, HAMAS.

Why Do So Many Muslims Embrace Religious and Ideological Warfare? thumbnail

Why Do So Many Muslims Embrace Religious and Ideological Warfare?

By Victor Sharpe

Mahatma Gandhi is quoted in his book, Gandhi: The Power of Pacifism, by Catherine Clement, as follows:

While Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Parsees, Jews, along with several million adherents of an animistic religion, all coexisted in relative harmony, one religion that would not accept compromise stood out from the rest: Islam.

Gandhi died in January 1948 and was referring to his experience during his lifetime in the Indian sub-continent. But the growth of Wahhabism and the current resurgence in Islamic triumphalism since Gandhi’s death now poses an increasingly existential threat to the West, to Judeo-Christian civilization, as well as to Hindus, Buddhists, and members other faiths – or no faiths.

The question repeatedly posed by the talking heads on the TV networks and cable television is how and why so many Muslims, young and old, are living in the West and enjoying all the material and educational benefits bestowed upon them and committing hideous acts of terror and perpetrating atrocities upon innocent civilians, even against their very own neighbors.

The Times Square bombing attempt on May 1, 2010, by Pakistan-born Faisal Shahzad and the 2009 Fort Hood massacre of unarmed members of the military by Major Nidal Hasan (still described by the problematic U.S. administration as “workplace violence”) are well-known.  So too is the attempt at terrorism by a Somali immigrant, Mohamed Osman Mohamud, who had come to America at the age of five with his family as a refugee from the hell that is Somalia, and who attempted to kill thousands during a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon.  But until the Chechen Muslim brothers succeeded in their massacre at the Boston Marathon, most terror attacks had been thwarted since the 9/11 destruction of the Twin Towers and part of the Pentagon by the 19 Saudi Arabian hijackers, in which 3,000 people were murdered.  This time, however, the Muslim miscreants succeeded and I fear there will be many more to come.

It was the baleful President Carter who undercut the shah of Iran who jailed and restricted the jihadists and Islamic groups and who was a supporter and ally of America. Just like President Obama, who equally undercut Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, the subsequent void was quickly and gleefully filled by Islamic fundamentalists and the Muslim Brotherhood who imposed sharia law and raised the banner of Islamic supremacy.

With the shah’s fall came the Ayatollah Khomeini from his exile in France, and almost immediately Carter’s foolish act resulted in a seemingly endless and most definitely humiliating imprisonment of American Embassy staff in Tehran.  Since then, Iran has fed the flames of Islamic terror around the globe, arming, and funding terror organizations such as Hamas and Hezb’allah.

Ayatollah Khomeini preached violence to ultimately conquer “the land of the infidel.”  By that he meant Israel, Christian European states, Britain, the United States, and the entire non-Muslim world. His followers throughout the Muslim and Arab world have all endorsed the legitimacy of jihad against what they falsely call the “enemies of Islam.”  Islamic martyrdom operations — specifically blowing up soft targets like the spectators at sporting events — are guarantees to paradise even if the victims are children.

So, the answer to those talking heads in the media who endlessly ask why so many Muslims commit such atrocities can be seen both in Koranic passages and in, for instance, the sickening hate indoctrination found in the terrorist-controlled Palestinian TV and radio broadcasts.

Here are some of the grisly passages from the Koran:

“Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Koran 2:191

“Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” Koran 9:123

“When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” Koran 9:5

“Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” Koran 3:85

“The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.”… Koran 9:30

“Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” Koran 5:33

“Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.” Koran 22:19

“The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.” Koran 8:65

“Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.” Koran 3:28

“Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.” Koran 8:12

“Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels.” Koran 8:60

And here are some examples of the Palestinian broadcasts that sow hate among children as young as three years of age, spawning yet another generation of terrorists and destroying hope of any true and lasting peace for the embattled State of Israel.

For example, the children’s show, The Best Home, included a scene in which a young girl recited a poem filled with messages of hate and other libels demonizing Jews.  The poem made the vile and evil assertion that Jews, “Allah’s enemies, the sons of pigs,” defiled the Quran and Jerusalem, “murdered children,” “cut off their limbs,” and “raped the women in the city squares.”

This message of vitriol — aimed at the future generation of Palestinians — not only serves to foster hatred and violence but undermines the very essence of coexistence and peace.  It poisons the minds of innocent young children instead of promoting respect for one another, which is a cornerstone for true peace.

In our politically correct world, members of the media and commentators often seek to distance Islam from so many acts of horrific violence, using terms of alleged distinction such as “radical Islam” or “moderate Islam” and so on.  But let us reflect on the words of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the close friend of Iran’s current genocidal president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

In reply to the term “moderate Islam,” which was apparently quoted to him by a Western journalist, Erdoğan said: “These descriptions are very ugly; it is offensive and an insult to our religion.  There is no moderate or immoderate Islam.  Islam is Islam, and that’s it.”

Certainly, attempting to constantly give, as liberals do, a free pass to Islamic abuses; to play down its violent ambitions of world conquest; to ignore the evident threat to Judeo-Christian civilization from sharia law and imposed dhimmitude merely encourages the violent tendencies of the followers of Islam – or what Winston Churchill in his book, the River War, called ‘‘an ideology wrapped in a religion.’’

The two Chechen brothers thus almost certainly succumbed to the hatred towards non-Muslims which proliferate in Islamic texts, on Islamic websites, and in Islamic social media.  And they are not alone.

Thoughts on the Approaching Christian Holidays, All Hallows’ Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas thumbnail

Thoughts on the Approaching Christian Holidays, All Hallows’ Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas

By Dr. Rich Swier

“Most seasonings are based on family tradition.” – Wolfgang Puck, Austrian-American chef and restaurateur.


As a young boy I most enjoyed my family’s traditions of celebrating important Christian events such as:

All Saints’ Day, also known as All Hallows’ Day, the Feast of All Saints, the Feast of All Hallows, the Solemnity of All Saints, and Hallowmas, which is a Christian solemnity celebrated in honor of all the saints of the Church, whether they are known or unknown. From the 4th century.

The first Thanksgiving which was celebrated by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in October 1621.

The Birth of Jesus Christ who is my Lord, Redeemer and Savior.

These Christian events have been and continue to be the time when my wife and I gather with family to celebrate events that have transformed us.

Sadly, today these three Christian events have become commercialized. All Hallows’ Day has become Halloween. Thanksgiving is about turkeys, and Christmas is about the fictitious Santa Claus and gifts to us, not to others in need.

The real Santa Claus dates back to 4th-century’s Hagios Nikolas, the bishop of Myra in Turkey, who became famous for his generous gifts to the poor.

Christian family traditions have become secular celebrations which have nothing to do with what is truly important.

Leviticus 20:6 reads, “And the person who turns to mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people.”

Those who don’t look at All Hallows’ Eve, Thanksgiving and Christmas as Christian traditions is breaking their Covenant with God and His Son Jesus.

Be forewarned! Galatians 5:19-21 reads, “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

Keep yourself and your family close to God.

That is the best tradition that must be practiced each and every day of one’ life.

This is day 7 of the Global War Against Islamic Terrorism.

It is the day when, according to Dr. Mahmoud al-Shajrawi, a “wonderful” fatwa has been issued to kill all Jews globally.  Watch:

It is also the day that Hamas has called for a Global Jihad against we the non-believers. Click here for a map of the know terrorist networks in America.

It is now clear that the Hamas attacks on Israel and its brutal savagery were designed to create a global jihad against Jews in particular and non-believers in general.

Hamas has called on “the entire Islamic nation to join the Jihad against Israel” on Friday, October 13th, 2023 as “a day of general mobilization for al-Aqsa.”

‘Students for Justice in Palestine’ Plans ‘Day of Resistance’

By Discover The Networks

Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), an anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian organization, is planning a “National Day of Resistance” on Thursday in support of Hamas terrorists and their attacks on Israeli civilians.

In a “toolkit” distributed within the group, SJP calls for the destruction of Israel (“dismantling Zionism”), and claims that Israeli “settlers” cannot be considered civilians at all, implying that they are legitimate military targets (regardless of age or gender).

The “toolkit” does not distinguish between a “settler” living in disputed territories such as the West Bank and ordinary Israelis living in the internationally recognized boundaries of Israel.

The “toolkit” also includes suggested graphics to use in promoting protests around the country. These include a graphic showing a Hamas terrorist descending on a paraglider — one of the methods used on Saturday to invade Israel and commit mass murder.

The “toolkit” also describes Hamas terrorism — which resulted in roughly 1,200 Israelis dead, 3,000 wounded, and some 100 taken hostage — as “natural and justified” responses to Israeli policy.

It celebrates the Hamas mass terror attack: “This action of resistance shatters the illusion of Israel as an impenetrable, indestructible entity. … Settlers are already fleeing the land, their ‘dedication’ to the settler colony is easily broken.”

The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs notes that “Principal backers of SJP include founders, financial patrons and ideological supporters who have been connected to Islamist terror organizations such as HamasHizbullahPalestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).”

In other words, the organization is just an arm of Palestinian subversion and terrorism.


Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP)

  • Anti-Semitic, pro-Palestinian activist group founded at University of California’s Berkeley campus in 2001
  • Has chapters on some 200 college campuses throughout the United States
  • Supports the Hamas-inspired Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against the Jewish state

‘For Your Own Safety:’ Israel Warns Gaza Residents To Evacuate Ahead Of Sweeping Ground Invasion

By The Daily Caller

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) are calling for residents of the Gaza Strip to immediately evacuate and move southbound as they prepare for a potential sweeping ground invasion.

IDF began launching airstrikes on the Gaza Strip this week in a counteroffensive effort against Hamas, which carried out mass terrorist attacks starting on Saturday that resulted in the deaths of over 1,300 Israelis and the kidnapping of hundreds more. The IDF is now issuing another evacuation order for Gaza civilians ahead of a likely invasion that will involve troops and tanks on the ground, as Hamas’ nerve center is located in tunnels deep under the city.

“The IDF calls for the evacuation of all civilians of Gaza City from their homes southwards,” IDF said in a statement on Friday. “The Hamas terrorist organization waged a war against the State of Israel and Gaza City is an area where military operations take place. This evacuation is for your own safety.”

“Hamas terrorists are hiding in Gaza City inside tunnels underneath houses and inside buildings populated with innocent Gazan civilians,” the IDF said. “In the following days, the IDF will continue to operate significantly in Gaza City and make extensive efforts to avoid harming civilians.”

Following the evacuation orders, Hamas told Gaza residents not to leave their homes and ignore the IDF’s safety instructions, according to the IDF and CNN. Hamas regularly uses civilians as human shields, and “embeds” itself in hospitals, homes and schools to deter attacks.

Hamas and Amoral Clarity by Victor Davis Hanson thumbnail

Hamas and Amoral Clarity by Victor Davis Hanson

By The Daily Caller

One unexpected blowback from the medieval Hamas’s barbaric murdering of hundreds of Israeli civilians is the revelation of current global amorality.

More than 20 Harvard university identity politics groups pledged their support to the Hamas murderers — to the utter silence for days of Harvard President Claudine Gay.

Americans knew higher education practiced racist admission policies. It has long promoted racially segregated dorms and graduations. And de facto it has destroyed the First Amendment.

But the overt support for Hamas killers by the diversity, equity and inclusion crowd on a lot of campuses exposes to Americans the real moral and intellectual rot in higher education.

Democratic Socialist members of the new woke Democrat Party openly expressed ecstatic support for Hamas’s bloodwork.

Their biggest fears were not dead fellow Americans or hostages, or some 1,000 butchered Jewish civilians. Instead they were fearful that righteous Israeli retaliation might destroy the Hamas death machine.

Palestinians for years fooled naifs in Europe and the Obama and Biden administrations into sending billions of dollars into Gaza.

These monies were channeled to tunnel into Israel, to obtain a huge rocket arsenal and to craft plans to wipe out Jews.

The Biden administration has blood on its hands.

As soon as President Joe Biden took power, he resumed massive subsidies to radical Palestinians, canceled by the prior Trump administration.

He ignored warnings from his own state Department that such fungible monies would soon fuel Hamas terrorism.

His administration dropped sanctions against Iran, ensuring that Tehran would enjoy a multi-billion-dollar windfall to be distributed to Israel’s existential enemies — another fact well known to the Biden administration.

If the Biden administration had announced overtly that it was rabidly anti-Israel, it would be hard to imagine anything it could have done differently from its present nihilist behavior.

Biden and company quickly restarted the defunct Iran appeasement deal — a leftover from the anti-Israeli Obama administration. No surprise, they appointed radical pro-Iranian activist Robert Malley to head the negotiations.

Malley allegedly has leaked American classified documents to Iranian officials and is under investigation by the FBI. He did his best to place pro-Iranian, anti-American activists into the high echelons of the U.S. government.

Biden was intent on forcing South Korea to release to Iran $6 billion in sanctioned frozen money.

That expectation of cash ensured Iran would be reimbursed for its present terrorist arming spree.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken shamefully tweeted that Israel should settle for an immediate ceasefire. No wonder he soon withdrew his unhinged posting.

That idiocy would be the moral equivalent of an American ally in December 1941 urging the U.S. to seek negotiations with imperial Japan after its surprise bombing of Pearl Harbor — to avoid a “cycle of violence.”

The Biden team has drained strategic arms stockpiles in Israel, designed to help the Jewish state in extremis.

It recklessly abandoned a multibillion-dollar arms trove in Kabul, some of which reportedly made its way from Taliban killers to the Hamas murderers.

Once the mass murdering started, the amoral clarity of our “allies” was stunning.

NATO partner Turkey openly sided with the killers. It — along with Blinken — called for a cease fire — at the moment the Hamas death squads had finished, and Israel was ready to hold Hamas to account.

Qatar, where the U.S. Central Command is based, proved little more than a Hamas front.

It offers sanctuary to the architects of Hamas killing. And Qatar ensures a safe financial pipeline to Hamas from Iran and the radical Arab world.

Some of the most vehement current supporters of the Hamas death squads were immigrants to America from the Middle East.

Oddly, they apparently had fled just such illiberal Middle East regimes to reach a tolerant, democratic, and secure United States.

Yet they now endorse the Hamas butchering of Jewish civilians. Its savagery is aimed at executing, raping and beheading Jews, and then mutilating their bodies.

Hamas apparently hopes to shock the Israeli government into voluntarily committing suicide — in line with the ancient Hamas agenda to destroy the Jewish state.

In a strange way, this reign of death has become a touchstone, an acid test of sorts that has revealed the utter amorality of enemies abroad and quite dangerous people at home.

It is past time that Americans deal with the medieval world that was revealed this week rather than keep dreaming in the fantasy world of our government.

Americans need to stop illegal immigration and restore their southern border, while ceasing all immigration from unhinged, hostile nations.

The military must return to its deterrent role and fire its woke commissariat.

Our leaders must accept that in the last three years of the Biden administration, serial American appeasement abroad, disunity at home and social chaos have encouraged an entire host of enemies — China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Middle East illiberal regimes and former friends like Turkey and Qatar.

And our enemies dream of doing to us what we just saw in Israel.

There can be no doubt that Hamas committed war crimes in its surprise attack on Israel thumbnail

There can be no doubt that Hamas committed war crimes in its surprise attack on Israel

By MercatorNet – Navigating Modern Complexities

Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups flagrantly violated international law and displayed a chilling disregard for human life by committing cruel and brutal crimes, including mass summary killings, hostage-taking, and launching indiscriminate rocket attacks into Israel.”


This condemnation comes from Amnesty International, in response to Hamas’s attack on Israel on October 7, which resulted in the deaths of around 1,200 individuals, primarily innocent civilians, including children and the elderly. Additionally, a staggering 2,400 people were injured, and an unusually high number of hostages, at least 150, were taken. Among them are women and children.

Amnesty has been a severe and consistent critic of Israel’s actions toward Gaza, so its condemnation of this week’s massacre carries a lot of weight.

Since the conclusion of the initial battle to expel the terrorists from the country, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have been focused on neutralizing terrorists who remain concealed within Israel, checking for traps, rescuing and relocating survivors, and recovering bodies. The extent of the atrocities committed by Hamas is being revealed through a combination of security camera footage, cellphone videos, photographs from ordinary citizens, as well as professional journalists, physical evidence found at massacre sites, and the accounts of witnesses.

Numerous kibbutzim and farms were raided, and unarmed people were killed. Eyewitnesses saw Hamas terrorists intentionally shooting unarmed civilians who were trying to escape. Terrorists also started fires. Security camera footage shows hostages being taken and later lying dead in the street. Other footage shows a terrorist shooting and killing someone who is already lying on the ground, possibly from previous injuries.

At Kfar Aza, a farming community, the IDF found the bodies of civilians, killed in front of the burned wreckage of their homes. Babies were murdered, parents were murdered, and bodies were beheaded. Major General Itai Veruv told reporters, “I’ve never seen anything like this in my career, never in 40 years of service. This is something I never imagined.” As IDF personnel placed the bodies of women, children, babies and the elderly in body bags, soldiers said the dead had been “brutally butchered in an ISIS way of action.”

Eyewitnesses reported that heavily armed Hamas terrorists went house to house, room to room, killing families, “babies, mothers, fathers in their bedrooms.” One survivor said that “We got a security alert saying, ‘enter your safe room, lock the windows and doors, there are terrorists on the kibbutz.’”

Many families were not so lucky and were gunned down before they could find shelter. Others reached their safe rooms, but, when the terrorists found they could not break in, they poured gasoline and lit the homes on fire. A survivor described his family’s ordeal as “hell on earth,” like being trapped in a sauna for 12 hours, while his home burned around him. Some families baked to death in their safe rooms or were shot when they tried to run out.

Most Western countries condemned the attacks. Many Arab countries did not, and a senior advisor to Iran’s supreme leader praised it. Iran is believed to have influenced and possibly helped plan the attack. Tehran’s motive may have been to sink a possible US-brokered Israel-Saudi Arabia peace agreement. It is in Iran’s interest to prevent that agreement from succeeding, because it could signal the beginning of a coalition isolating Iran.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken travelled to Israel, and after seeing evidence of the carnage, gave a press briefing. He stated, “It’s hard to find the right words. It is beyond what anyone would want to imagine, much less see or God forbid experience… A baby infant riddled with bullets, soldiers beheaded, young people burned alive in their cars or in their rooms. I could go on, but it is simply depravity in the worst imaginable way.” He said that the horrors he saw reminded him of ISIS.

Guido Steinberg, a terrorism expert at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs, told Deutsche Welle that he had always believed that ISIS and Hamas were very different, both in motivation and in tactics. But now, he has concluded, “We are fighting an organization much closer to ISIS than we had thought.”

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia established legal precedent that can be used to analyse the Hamas attack on Israel. The attack meets the definition of an armed conflict. Therefore, according to the United Nations, Hamas must abide by the Law of Armed Conflict and International Humanitarian Law. Taking civilians hostage is prohibited under international humanitarian law and the International Convention against the Taking of Hostages. Targeting civilians, massacring civilians, and using civilians as human shields are all prohibited. At least one of the hostages seen in Hamas videos was a young female Israeli soldier who appeared to have been raped. The United Nations and the Geneva Convention both identify rape as a war crime. There are videos of bodies being beheaded and corpses being danced upon or otherwise desecrated. Under the Geneva Convention, mutilation of corpses is also a war crime.

That Hamas is guilty of war crimes is clear. And the world is planning a response.

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that she is considering various sanctions against Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah. The EU initially said they would suspend aid to Palestine, but Brussels now seems to have backtracked a bit. Israel has asked the EU to follow Washington’s lead and impose sanctions. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has blamed Iran for backing Hamas. It remains to be seen how far Europe is willing to go and which country or entity they may be willing to impose sanctions on. In the meantime, Blinken has called on Hamas to release the hostages immediately and unconditionally.

Gaza—The Collapse of Conventional Wisdom thumbnail

Gaza—The Collapse of Conventional Wisdom

By Martin Sherman

The political rationale of the Gaza conflict can be mirrored in the inexorable logic of an almost mathematical algorithm—studiously ignored by Israel’s policy-making echelons 


“The enemy of …conventional wisdom is not ideas but the march of events” — John Kenneth Galbraith


Saturday 7th of October marked the demise of conventional wisdom and of “respectable” Establishment perceptions regarding the conflict over the Gaza Strip. Decades-old precepts were washed away in a deluge of blood. The idea of Palestinian self-rule (the two-state solution), along with the notion of “managing the conflict” (a.k.a. “mowing the lawn”, or “kicking the can down the road”) were swept away by the gory events of the past week.

A delusionary pipe dream

The savage assault proved definitively that the idea of a Hamas-governed Gaza, placated by economic well-being, is a hallucinatory pipe dream. Indeed, despite being the preferred illusion of much of the Israel decision-making echelons—particularly the military—it was, in fact, brusquely rejected by the Hamas leadership years ago.

Indeed, in 2017 then-defense minister, Avigdor Liberman, offered a seemingly tempting proposal. He proposed transforming Gaza “into the Singapore of the Middle East” by the construction of  a seaport and an airport and by creating industrial zones that would help create 40,000 jobs—if Hamas would only agree to demilitarizing and to dismantling the tunnel and rocket systems it had built up.

The Hamas response was swift and dismissive. Mahmoud al-Zahar, a senior Hamas official, rejected it disdainfully, sneering, “If we wanted to turn Gaza into Singapore, we would have done it ourselves. We do not need favors from anyone.

His tart retort prompted a stark comment from Bassam Tawil a Palestinian scholar at the Gatestone Institute: “Why did Hamas reject an offer for a seaport, airport and tens of thousands of jobs for Palestinians? Because Hamas does not see its conflict with Israel as an economic issue. The dispute is not about improving the living conditions of Palestinians, as far as Hamas is concerned. Instead, it is about the very existence of Israel.”

Caustically Tawil added: “Hamas deserves credit for one thing: its honesty concerning its intentions to destroy Israel and kill as many Jews as possible. Hamas does not want 40,000 new jobs for the poor unemployed Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. It would rather see these unemployed Palestinians join its ranks and become soldiers in its quest to replace Israel with an Islamic empire.”

Yet, our leaders clung fast to the idea of economic welfare as a panacean balm—allowing the flow of Qatari dollars to stream into the Islamist coffers of Hamas. On October 7, this defective doctrine of “dollars for dummy stability” collapsed—tragically and catastrophically.

Why “mowing the lawn won’t cut it”

Another “mainstream” doctrine that has been definitively disproved is that of “Conflict Management”—i.e. rather than Conflict Resolution. This is an approach—dubbed by some as mowing the lawn”—that entails Israel launching a new bout of fighting every time the Palestinian violence reaches levels it finds unacceptable. Thus, it essentially endorses a policy based on resignation to a reality of recurring rounds of violence, separated by intermittent periods of calm, whose length was determined by either the enemy’s willingness to engage, or by its desperation, making it impossible not to. However, in the past, I pointed out that:“…the periods of inter-bellum calm have been consistently used by the Palestinian terror groups to enhance their capabilities…After all, when Israel left Gaza (2005), the range of the Palestinian rockets was barely 5 km., and the explosive charge they carried, about 5 kg. Now their missiles have a range of over 100 km. and warheads of around 100 kg. When Israel left Gaza, only the sparse population in its immediate proximity was threatened by missiles. Now well over 5 million Israelis, well beyond Tel Aviv, are menaced by them.”

Thus, Hamas—and its more radical off-shoots—exploited the periods of calm to further advance and extend its infrastructures and other abilities, which were barely imaginable a decade ago.

Accordingly, it is clear that successive bouts of limited fighting did little to deter Hamas in the sense of breaking their will to engage in battle. Rather, after every round, they have been forced to regroup, redeploy, and rearm—only to re-emerge spoiling for a fight, ever bolder, with ever-greater (indeed, once inconceivable) capabilities.

Demilitarizing/deposing Hamas: Futile & foolish fetishes

Shortsighted proposals like disarming or deposing Hamas ignore the very problems that their implementation would inevitably raise.

The fetish with the demilitarization of Gaza is both timeworn and futile. Indeed, it has ostensibly been part and parcel of the noxious Oslowian “peace-process” since its inception.

However, those who until October 7th, persisted in suggesting demilitarization of Gaza, were apparently oblivious to the fact that Gaza was already supposed to be demilitarized under the Oslo Accords, and they gave little clue as to why future demilitarization is likely to be any more effective than it was in the past—or by whom it might be enforced and how such enforcement is to be effected.

But even if Hamas were effectively disarmed, how could it impose law and order on any more radical opponents or heavily armed criminal elements that permeate the Strip? Moreover, beyond day-to-day challenges to law and order, how was a defanged Hamas supposed to contend with attempts to overthrow it by more radical opponents both from within the Gaza Strip and from within the adjacent Sinai Peninsula? If a demilitarized Hamas—or any disarmed successor regime—were faced with a significant challenge to its rule, whether from domestic or foreign sources, would Israel be called upon to defend it? Indeed, it is difficult to conceive of a more Kafkaesque prospect than one in which IDF forces need to be mobilized to prop up a virulently Judeophobic Islamist regime, against even more virulently Judeophobic Islamist adversaries.

On the other hand, if Hamas were deposed, it is more than likely that its successor would be even more radical and extreme than Hamas itself. After all, it is highly implausible that a more moderate entity would be prepared to adopt the kind of behavior required to take power—and keep it—in the ruthless Gaza environment.

The inexorable logic of the Gaza conflict

The political rationale of the Gaza conflict can be expressed in the inexorable logic of an almost mathematical algorithm—studiously, and tragically, ignored Israel’s policy-making echelons.

Clearly, the only way Israel can ensure who governs Gaza is to govern it itself. Moreover, the only way Israel can govern Gaza without imposing its rule on “another people”, is to remove that “other people” from the confines of Gaza, over which it is obligated to rule. Up until October 7th, it was possible to conceive of this being conducted in a non-coercive manner by economically induced emigration. Lamentably, that possibility has been overtaken by events. Now, such an exodus must be implemented coercively and rapidly.

After all, Israeli lives matter!

The appalling experience of October 7th underscored the cruel—and hitherto disregarded—dilemma, which Israel can now ignore no longer!

It must choose between having Jews live in the Negev, or Arabs in Gaza. It is no longer possible there will be both.

‘What Starts in Israel Doesn’t End with Israel’ thumbnail

‘What Starts in Israel Doesn’t End with Israel’

By Family Research Council

“We’re trying to pull ourselves together,” a survivor said, looking around at the rubble, the charred and bullet-sprayed houses. What was once a buzzing kibbutz is now makeshift military base, where Israeli soldiers struggle to wade through the horrors left behind by Saturday’s attack. The echoes of the massacre are all around them, in black body bags of all sizes, bloodstained walls, and the stunned look of the left behind. “We’re all like zombies here,” one young woman said.

This was not war, hardened soldiers on the ground would tell reporters later. This was an act of savages, of butchers. Worse than ISIS, many insisted. “I never imagined something like this could happen,” IDF Major General Itai Veruv told CNN of the torture and execution of innocent children, women, and whole families. “Hand-bound, shot, executed, heads cut,” babies decapitated, dazed witnesses confirmed. A slaughter.

Now, as tanks roll in and forces gather for a ground invasion of Gaza — cutting off water, power, and fuel to the two million people living on the narrow slice of land — rockets and drones have started pounding Israelis from Hezbollah in Lebanon. “The sirens are sounding in every town and city in the north,” news outlets warn, “including the Golan Heights.” As troops mass toward the south, the multi-front war that experts feared seems to have arrived.

Families whose children survived the worst of Hamas are now facing another agonizing reality — parting with their sons and daughters, as reservists are called up to the frontlines by the tens of thousands. Together, they have one common sentiment: resolve.

Dr. Ari Sacher, one of the primary architects of Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, sent his own sons off to war over the weekend, amazed that the army had 150% of the people they called up show up. “And what’s [unbelievable],” he pointed out, is that “we were a country for the last better part of a year [that] was fraying. Many people felt that we were on the verge of a civil war. The government was trying to pass laws that would change judicial reform laws. And there was an outcry. People were saying, ‘We’re not going to do reserve duty anymore.’”

After Saturday’s atrocities, “all of that was thrown aside,” Sacher said. At a time of crisis like this, he pointed out, “one of two things could have happened: the country could have just imploded, or we could have been galvanized. And what happened was we became galvanized.”

He talked about dropping one son off at the unit’s meeting point, stunned by the crowd. “There were so many cars. There were thousands of cars. There was nowhere to park my car. He had to walk 15 minutes to get where he needed to get. And he was walking with throngs of people — every type of Israeli, the Orthodox, the non-Orthodox, people with sidelocks, people that are bald with tattoos. We were all going for that purpose.”

Since then, Sacher said, “There’s just been an onslaught of Israelis inundating [the troops with supplies]. My sons are sending messages [saying], ‘Stop bringing us food, stop bringing us supplies. There’s nowhere to put it anymore.’ This country has been galvanized.”

And no wonder. Talking to Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on “Washington Watch” Tuesday, Sacher was somber about the task facing his people. “We have since cleared out all of the areas; we are now counting our dead. We’re burying our dead. In another half hour, one of the dead from my town up north will be taken out to be buried. We are all leaving our houses and standing on the street with Israeli flags as they take him to his to his final burial place” — a scene that will be playing out in dozens of grieving villages for weeks to come.

“And we are not looking for retribution,” Sacher insisted, “because you can’t ask for retribution for what happened. We’re looking to rid the world of Hamas.”

Others, like Carolyn Glick — Middle East expert, journalist, political advisor, and former officer in the Israeli Defense Forces — have been grateful to see the United States step up and have Israel’s back in that effort. “[President Biden] gave an important statement [Tuesday] reinstating his full support for Israel and his readiness to aid Israel in any way necessary. … So that was good.”

But what concerns her and several other Israelis are the powerful pro-Palestinian voices inside the White House.

“Just the day before the Hamas attack, Secretary of State Tony Blinken approved another $75 million in aid to the Palestinians. And advancing the cause of the Palestinians against Israel has been a central, central focus of the Biden administration,” she explained on “Washington Watch.” “People like Hady Amr, who’s the presidential envoy to the Palestinians, has a long history of supporting Palestinian terrorism against Israel, and he has [a] very senior position in the Biden administration, as does the director of intelligence and the National Security Council, Maher Bitar, and other very key people who are responsible for implementing President Biden’s Middle East policies and the National Security Council in the White House and in the State Department, among other places.”

So, yes, Glick cautioned. The support that America is showing for Israel “does empower Israel, but it’s important to realize that Biden has also made it, “until now, a key goal of their policy to what they call integrate Iran into the Middle East through nuclear appeasement. And to that end, as you mentioned, they just approved the unfreezing of $6 billion in oil revenues from the South Koreans to be transferred to Iran.”

In all honesty, she said, “Our future in this region and our existence is at stake here. … And that means recognizing that Hamas is a proxy of Iran, as is Hezbollah in Lebanon, and that Iran is directing this entire thing. They ordered the strikes. They’re paying for them. They’re providing all of the ammunition and everything that Hamas needs. Ninety-three of Hamas’s budget is paid for by Iran,” Glick told Perkins.

“We had a Holocaust-level atrocity perpetrated against the Jewish people on Saturday,” she insisted. “… And this is not just Hamas,” Glick was careful to point out. “Hezbollah has 250,000 missiles pointing at Israel. And it cannot end this war with those missiles pointing at Israel or being shot at Israel. We have to end their threat against Israel — and it goes to Iran itself.” Their regime, Glick continued, cannot be appeased by Biden. It has “to be pushed back to such a degree that they won’t ever try to do it again.”

In the end, Glick emphasized, this is not just about the Israelis. “It’s very important for … our friends abroad to [understand] that what starts in Israel doesn’t end with Israel. What starts with the Jews doesn’t end with the Jews. The United States knows what jihad is, even if it’s pretended it away. And if we don’t defeat the forces of jihad, led by Iran, here, they will be at your doorstep as well tomorrow.”

This is Not About Israel, It’s About Islam thumbnail

This is Not About Israel, It’s About Islam

By Jihad Watch

We can stand together or fight and die alone.


This war was declared over 1,000 years ago.

Flying planes into skyscrapers, running over French pedestrians with a truck, massacring Indian families, and Israeli concertgoers is the same war.

Islamic terrorists and their allies try to make every attack about the specific context of a situation in a particular corner of the world.

That’s a lie that too many fall for.

Even countries that are the victims of Islamic terrorism often draw lines between the “good” and “bad” Islamic terrorism. We do it ourselves. But there is no such line. Whether a country is good or bad makes no difference. Islamic terrorists come for every country eventually. There is no major nation that has not faced Islamic terrorist attacks as long as it has a significant Muslim population within or near its borders.

America, India, Canada, Europe, Russia, China, Australia, Argentina, and Brazil (a planned Olympic massacre) are just a few of the examples. The smaller countries that have come under attack are nearly endless. If you exist, you’re a target.

Hamas is just an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood which is a global operation. Its Al Qaeda splinter group has carried out attacks all over the world.

What happened in Israel is not about Israel: it’s about Islam.

It’s all too easy to nod along with the propaganda, the claims about “Palestinian oppression”, and ignore the historical context of over 1,000 years of Islamic violence against non-Muslims that follow the same exact model, or the global reach of Islamic terrorism today.  The pattern is easy to spot and so people have to be indoctrinated into ignoring it.

So many have been told that they’re ‘Islamophobes’ if they notice Islamic terrorism, let alone condemn it. The politically correct alternative is to condemn the targets of Islamic terrorism instead. It’s easy and it’s safe to condemn Israel. And then to pretend that every country being attacked somehow had it coming. The only group that doesn’t have it coming are the Islamic terrorists.

The world has to break out of this Stockholm Syndrome before it’s too late.

9/11 wasn’t just about America. The Westgate Mall attack wasn’t just about Kenya. The Mumbai attack wasn’t just about India. The Bastille Day attack wasn’t just about France. The attacks in Israel now aren’t just about the Jewish State.

The world has a choice. We can stand together or fight and die alone.

Savages

By Jihad Watch

Civilization and savagery are fundamentally at war.


We’re in a war between savages and civilization. Everything else is a detail.

Some of us woke up to that war when planes crashed into skyscrapers. Others when we saw beheading videos spread across social media. What we saw in Israel, Hamas terrorists raping, mutilating and defiling corpses, is another bloody wake-up call. There will be many others.

Beyond the politics and the geopolitics, we still haven’t come to terms with what we’re fighting.

The barbarism of murdering women and children, taking them as hostages, and posting photos of their dead bodies to social media, is not a byproduct of Islamic warfare, it’s the whole point.

Cruelty, beheading, burning to death, torturing and mutilating are the essence of Islam. This is how Islamic warfare was practiced beginning with Mohammed for over a thousand years. It’s how it continues to be practiced, whether it’s ISIS fighting other Muslims, Azebajani troops killing Armenians, Hamas attacking Israelis, or Islamic terrorists plotting carnage in Western nations.

Islam was born out of a war by barbarians against the civilized societies of Persia and Byzantium. Despite academic mythmaking, its vision never extended beyond rape and slavery, its empires fell into power struggles, beginning with Sunnis and Shiites, and its cultural and scientific accomplishments were all looted from conquered peoples. When civilization finally toppled the Ottoman Empire with some help from its internal barbarians, the cycle began again.

Israel is just one front in a global war between savages and civilization. And not all of the savages bow to Allah. There are inner city gangs across the American hemisphere that behead and torture their victims. And there are children of civilization that turn into savages. Savagery is not a condition of birth: it is a choice. People born into savagery can become civilized and those born into the highest echelons of civilization can prey on us like the worst vicious animals.

The question is how do civilized societies confront savagery? Do we blame ourselves for having made the savages what they are through our capitalism and colonialism even though they have behaved this way long before modern western civilization amounted to anything? Or do we set forth to reeducate them, to build modern nations for them and teach them to become civilized?

We have sent forth our sons and daughters to make peace with them and to educate them. Our societies opened themselves to embrace and celebrate the virtues of the noble savage. When we realized that we could not coexist with savages, we tried to remake our societies to serve them. All of that has been tried and civilization is still drowning in the violence of the savages.

The fundamental truth is that civilization and savagery are innately at war with one another.

Savages are offended by the existence of civilization. When they see one, they want to destroy it. There can be no peace with savages because, contrary to Islam, peace is a condition of civilization. To have peace, you must be civilized. Savages don’t even view peace as a value apart from the conclusion of a successful conquest which then sets the stage for the next one.

Civilized people develop complex mechanisms of exchange, but savages see no reason why they shouldn’t take something or someone if they are too weak to defend themselves. No amount of lectures will ever convince a savage that anything other than clan relations should prevent him from stealing a car or raping a woman if there will be no clear consequences.

That’s because savages, unlike civilized people, have no conscience, and therefore no soul.

Islam, unlike Judaism and Christianity, is not a religion of the soul, but entirely of power. From its genocidal chant, “Allahu Akbar” that proclaims the physical supremacy of Allah to all other religions through the military victories of its followers, everything is reduced to conquest. The truth of Islam is validated through war. When Jihadists conquer and rape non-Muslims, they are proving that Islam is true and that the religions of the conquered are false. That’s why ISIS Jihadists would tell the Yazidi girls they were raping that rape brought them “closer to Allah”

Civilizations have become too sophisticated and decadent to understand such concepts. When faced with barbarism, they go down a dialectic rabbit hole that explains the savages in terms of how civilized people interacted with them. Did they hurt their feelings, overthrow their governments or draw mean cartoons? Did capitalism leave them adrift in the world economy? How did we fail to integrate the newest generation of immigrants with all the welfare checks?

These sophomoric sessions are pointless. A hyena doesn’t eat your chickens because you failed to integrate it. That’s just what hyenas do. Man at the base state is a predator and savages strive to be the alpha predators. Civilizations become superior predators because they provide room for arts and sciences, because they think about something other than how they are superior to their neighbors and will prove it by killing their sons and raping their daughters.

But when civilizations spend too much time thinking, they forget that one reason they came into being was to build something better than a state of savagery. Decadent civilizations internalize all the criticism and their peoples endlessly quarrel and think that the worst possible things in the world are the ones that exist among their own people. Savages remind us otherwise.

Much like a hurricane reminds us of the alternative to houses and famine reminds us of the alternative to food, savages remind us of the alternative to civilization. Unfortunately truly decadent civilizations need constant reminders of all of these things. We have to be constantly told that food doesn’t magically emerge from a supermarket, that houses are not the natural state of being and that not being murdered by savages in your home is a new way of life.

Tolerate savages, give them enough rope and they will do all of these things to you. And more.

Savagery should not be confused with stupidity. Civilizations have been brought down by savages and civilizations were built by savages who became civilized. Savages are clever and cunning. They are alert to the weaknesses of civilized people and experts at finding ways around whatever walls and security systems that civilized people build to protect themselves.

Civilizations that spend enough time allowing savages to hang around will fall. Tolerating savages is actually a sign that a civilization has turned decadent. Welcoming and advocating for savages means that the end is nigh. Viable civilizations drive savages away. They do it not just to protect themselves but because banishing savages is what makes a civilization civilized.

When civilizations forget what the difference between themselves and the savages are, they lose their sense of right and wrong, and they can no longer explain why savagery is wrong. When faced with the worst imaginable crimes, they can still equivocate a case for the criminals.

Hamas terrorists can rape and kill their victims, and defenders will rally to explain why the issue is actually more complicated than it seems. This happens with Islamic terrorists all the time.

Savages and decadent civilizations have no firm concept of right and wrong. Everything is subjectively opportunistic and there can be scenarios in which raping a woman, killing her and then posting a photo of her body to social media so her family can see is actually right.

That is why civilization has to defeat savagery, without equivocation, apologies or sympathy, not only to win, but to revive its own soul. Negotiations and laws of war are for peer civilization. Savages offer nothing and so are owed nothing. They keep no agreements except when it suits them. Their word is worthless and their morality is non-existent.

A civilization that does not understand all this will learn it the hard way.

Civilizations are built on the suppression of savagery: both internally and externally.. When civilizations defeat savages, learning, art, science and ideas thrive. And when civilizations allow savages to ravage them, they lose their people, their morality and eventually their existence.

No form of war is more sacred than that of civilization against savagery. It is these wars that made Christianity and Judaism, not to mention all the ideas of western civilization, as well as those of Asia and India, possible. This is once again the defining struggle of our age.

Either civilization or the savages will prevail. Any attempt at a middle ground is suicide.

Our grandchildren will either make great things or they will be hunted by roaming savages like the teenage girls at a concert in Israel or those similarly hunted in venues in Europe.

All the hopes of mankind depend on the utter and total defeat of the savages, not just in Israel, but in America, in Europe, in India and Asia, and around the world. This is not the struggle of any single nation, but the crisis of mankind. Either humanity will rise or we will fall.
