“Democracies can exist for only 200 years”
Islam And Terrorism Most Muslims are not terrorists, but today almost all terrorists are Muslims. Since 9/11 about 9,000 terrorist attacks have been committed by Muslims. We need to understand what in Islam causes this phenomenon.
JIHAD “..is a radical, expansionist, totalitarian ideology that seeks to establish a global Islamic state ruled by Islamic law, or Sharia..” Robert Spencer
Manhattan, Feb. 2006
Syed Abul Ala Maududi founder of Pakistani political party Jamaat-e- Islami “Islam is a revolutionary ideology and program which seeks to alter the social order of the whole world and rebuild it in conformity with its own tenets and ideals……”
… Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it….”
London, Feb. 2006
Sharia Law Is Coming To Europe Polygamy Stonings Persecution of Jews Rapes Banning of national flags No more piggy banks or bacon No more custard cones Cannot fly British flag in prisons

Manual of Islamic Law Defines “Jihad” as “war against non-Muslims” “war against non-Muslims” Cairo Al-Azhar University Cairo Al-Azhar University
Al Qaeda has its own goal of world domination by using WMDs
“America is the head of heresy in our modern world, and as a result we have the right to kill 4 million Americans– 2 million of them children –and to exile twice as many and wound and cripple hundreds of thousands…” Suleiman Abu Gheith Al- Qaeda spokesman
“ American Hiroshima”
The use of WMDs Pre-positioned suitcase nukes on U.S. soil Chemicals Biologicals Dirty bombs Blackmail Simultaneous
Osama bin Laden issues declarations telling us what he plans to do …Islamic states also predict the future…
DECLARATION OF JIHAD AGAINST THE JEWS AND CRUSADERS “ killing the Americans and their allies- both civilian and military personnel- is a commandment for every individual Muslim who can do this, in any country in which he can do this….” OSAMA BIN LADEN 1998
Pakistan, Feb. 2006
To those who doubt, to those who ask is it possible, or those who do not believe, I say accomplishment of a world without America and Israel is both possible and feasible” Ahmadinejad Iran’s President
Three choices for non-Muslims From the Barbary pirates to Osama----- Conversion to Islam Submission or slavery Death
“The GOAL of JIHAD is not so much to force the unbelievers to convert to Islam, as to extend the hegemony of Islamic law and to make unbelievers submit as inferiors”
The Jihad ideology requires the oppression of women
Recent news reports Cairo- 10 y.o. --prostitution “Mo”- avoid stereotypes, kills wife Jordan- will not ban honor killing Razor blades- daughter raped by brother England and the suitcase- daughter escapes but returns
Women are inferior to men and must be ruled by them “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other” Koran 4:34 Koran 4:34
Koran- manifesto for the oppression of women A women’s testimony is worth half that of a man. Koran 2:282 A man may marry up to four wives, and have sex with slave girls as well. 4:3 A son’s inheritance should be twice the size of that of a daughter. 4:11 A husband should beat a disobedient wife. 4:34
The Pakistani Institute of Medical Sciences “over 90% of Pakistani wives have been struck, beaten, or abused sexually for offenses such as cooking an unsatisfactory meal or failing to give birth to a male child”
Mecca- March girls trapped in a fire at their school…they shed outer garments to survive and escape..Saudi Arabian religious police muttawa would not allow the girls out of the building….the girls all died Newsweek, July 22, 2002
Koran takes child marriage for granted… The prophet Muhammad had a child bride..The prophet married Aisha when she was 6 years old….he consummated that marriage when she was 9 years old. Bukhari, vol 5., book 63, #3896
Honor killing- deeply rooted in Islamic culture Victim of rape is killed…women’s fault for being raped….thus, cover Jordan, article 340 of the criminal code does not penalize murder of women
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Cutting off the clitoris Sewing together what is left FGM from infancy to puberty Women’s sexual feelings - sinful
Islam has serious problems with “Crusaders” and Jews How do you convince a jihadist there is a reward by dying ?
Heavenly rewards ?
Jihad calls for the extermination of the Jews Shiekh Zayad bin Sultan Aal Nahyan Mosque in Gaza….10/2000. “…have no mercy on the Jews, no matter where they are, in any country. Fight them, wherever you are. Whatever you meet them, kill them. Wherever you are, kill those Jews and those Americans who are like them”
Hassan Nasrallah- Hizballah “Anyone who reads the Koran cannot think of co-existence with them, of peace with them……” Nasrallah calls Jews the “grandsons of apes and pigs” Koran 2:62- 65,5:59-60, and 7:166.
What is the evolution of Islamic terrorist organizations?
“The founding of the Muslim Brotherhood was not a response to Zionism, but to the abolition of the caliphate by the secular Turkish government in 1924”
America’s support for Israel is the most common explanation given today for jihad violence Muslim Brotherhood established in 1928, twenty years before the founding of the State of Israel
Samuel Huntington in Clash of Civilizations “Wherever one looks along the perimeter of Islam, Muslims have problems living peacefully with their neighbors…”
Subversion of democratic institutions “ Because of the imperative to subjugate unbelievers and dominate the world in the name of Islam, jihadis work wherever there are Muslim settlements in the West to undermine democracy and constitutional law…”
“Using the West’s respect for minority rights and culture, jihadis push for the adoption of Sharia law, first in their own communities and then in Europe generally”
“The Sharia (Islamic Law) does not have to adapt to the modern world because these are divine laws. People have to bend to the Sharia..” Imam in Holland
“Thanks to your democratic laws, we will invade you. Thanks to our religious laws, we will dominate you” Roman Catholic Archbishop in Turkey Giuseppe Bernardini in discussion with Muslim leader
Jihad claims to be fighting “Crusaders” Muhammad unified the Arabian peninsula under his rule and directed that ALL religions be forbidden there except Islam Islam attacked Christian nations: Byzantine, Syria, Palestine and Egypt Muhammad said “embrace Islam and you will be safe”….destruction followed
History of Conquest In 635 (3 years after prophet’s death) Damascus fell to Muslims. In 638, Jerusalem fell In 711, invaded Spain and held it for 700 years Finally defeated in France by Charles Martel “The Hammer” in 732 at battle of Tours
1683, September 11th Battle of Vienna Islamists stopped from taking over Europe…..today ?
Edward Gibbon, author of “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” “… observed that if the Muslim invasion into France had been successful, the Koran would now be taught at Oxford…”
A little closer to home, in 1998 Omar Ahmad, the chairman and cofounder of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, self described as America's largest Islamic civil liberties group, said:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
“Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty or Safety” Benjamin Franklin
Can We Win ? Yes, we can.
