After the 9/11 Muslim attack America came together as one, mystified by the Islamic terrorist attacks that had just occurred and longing for the tradition that America represents. The upholding of honor and dignity as well as what many saw as a divine purpose being raped by mysterious invaders from the Middle East. Our will was steeled against invasion, not only of the obvious and physical sort we had just endured, but of ideological intrusions as well. On 9/11/2001 America exhaled and a magnificent heightening of patriotic spirit settled upon us for the first time since Pearl Harbor.
In the fleeting 10 years since, remarkable, almost incomprehensible change has occurred. The 2015 terrorist attacks in France have been a reawakening to our realization of the dangers we face from terrorists. It is no surprise that there is a general resistance to bringing Syrian “refugees” to America because of their Islamic element. More difficult to fathom is the current American administration’s determination, fertilized by the bias and propaganda broadcast by the American main-stream media, the American education system, and others (liberality)) to continue and increase their numbers after what we are seeing in Europe.
Largely because of our history of freedom/responsibility, Americans are easily sold on the idea that opposing this “immigration” is a sort of racism. We see Islam as a religion, and thus an inalienable right. The fear of Islam is seen as an unjustifiable prejudice. “Muslims are peaceful, tolerant and have nothing to do with terrorism.” ~Hillary Clinton.
Evidence, however, begs to differ. In the first place, a simple accounting of the verifiable numbers. If we begin at 9/11/2001, verifiable statistics give us over 300 terrorist attacks relative to Islam. Over 11,000 deaths and over 20,000 serious injuries1.
My goal at the outset of this study was to accumulate a comparable list of attacks of a similar nature being conducted by non-Islamics for some other reason, be it racism or what have you. Thanks to the bias and propagandistic elements of our media (main stream, educatory and otherwise) that turns out to be a much more difficult task than I’d anticipated. There are many reports trying to convince us that as high as 98% of terroristic attacks are committed by those outside of Islam. But what I haven’t been able to find is an actual listing of these attacks such as the one I have been able to compile of Islamic attacks.
We are all aware of non-Islamic terrorist attacks; 1995 Timothy McVeigh’s Oklahoma City bombing, 1994 Planned Parenthood bombing in Brookline, MS, 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, and there are many others. However there are few openly terrorist organizations outside of Islam, although such organizations do exist, such as the one some American democrats organized after the Civil War, the K.K.K. Nevertheless, to produce a list backing up even the much more moderate claim that 60% of terroristic attacks are non-Muslim requires a redefinition of the term “terrorist,” AND must include crimes ranging from gangland violence to street crime and robbery.
To apply the 98% figure I’ve repeatedly seen (i.e. http://anonhq.com/less-2-terrorist-acts-committed-muslims-europe-us/), balanced against the verifiable figures we have in reference to Islamic terrorism since 9/1/01, one must come up with 15,000 non-Islamic terrorist attacks resulting in over 550,000 deaths and over 1,000,000 serious injuries since 9/11/01. This would be 89 non-Islamic terrorist attacks per month; 3274 non-Islamic terrorist caused deaths per month; 5952 serious injuries per month caused by non-Islamic terrorist attacks. To call this, hard to swallow is an understatement, but when backed by no verifiable statistical evidence, it seems rather absurd.
While the terrorist branch of Islam is referred to as “radical,” there is a simple truth which strikes the studious right between the eyes like a 12 lb. sledge, and can be found in the writings and scriptures of Islam. Words which combined with ‘Jihad,’ the seldom openly mentioned pillar of Islamic faith. Jihad, or holy fighting, is an obligation for every Muslim on earth! It is not the same sort of prescription we find in reference to what may become a necessity to fight for one’s freedom, or civil, or religious rights. Such as, “you may find it necessary to fight for your freedom if it comes under attack. Allah doesn’t even leave the decision up to his followers:
“Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” ~ Quran (2:216)
“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” ~Quran (8:12)
”And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah” ~Quran (8:39)
“So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”~ Quran (9:5)
“And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”~ Quran (9:30)
“Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost (Shakir: “have the upper hand”) for Allah is with you,”~ Quran (47:35)
“Allah’s Apostle said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.’” ~Bukhari (52:177)
>The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” In this command, Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the many Islamic terror bombings. ~Bukhari (52:256) –
>The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah ~Muslim (1:33)
“Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam. ~Tabari 9:69
“Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”~ Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 484
“Embrace Islam… If you two accept Islam, you will remain in command of your country; but if your refuse my Call, you’ve got to remember that all of your possessions are perishable. My horsemen will appropriate your land, and my Prophethood will assume preponderance over your kingship.” One of several letters from Muhammad to rulers of other countries. The significance is that the recipients were not making war or threatening Muslims. Their subsequent defeat and subjugation by Muhammad’s armies was justified merely on the basis of their unbelief. -Saifur Rahman, The Sealed Nectar p.227-228
There is much more, but I’d rather suggest some personal study of the “religion of peace,” beginning please, with the Quran.
Through this lens the question becomes rather more simple. It is less a question of the “rights” or humane consideration of these Syrian “immigrants” that our media is comparing to William Bradford and the 40 original Pilgrims we celebrate at Thanksgiving, it is rather a consideration of the safety and livelihood of the society that those original Pilgrims spawned. Our concern is rightly ignited by the importation of people who religiously believe in the concept of convert or destroy, whatever their “rights” may be.
