The Islamic Terror Orchestra


By Nonie Darwish

It has been 13 years since 9/11 and the West is still reluctant to link the non-ending parade of jihad groups with Islam. The West is also in denial about the similarities all radical Islamic groups share. It is important for the West to realize that there is a natural division of labor between the different terror groups. Some groups specialize in terror against non-Muslims and Western governments while others specialize in terrorizing Arab governments that refused to follow Sharia. But the truly sophisticated groups are those who reside in the West, calling themselves ‘moderate’ while at the same time defending and controlling the direction of Islamist goals through advocacy, diplomacy, negotiation and PR.
All of the above types of Islamist groups work together in perfect harmony like an orchestra that sings to the tune of “Allahu Akbar.” And when Islamic terrorism and beheadings anger the world and turn public opinion against Islam, that orchestra starts playing a different tune to confuse and prevent the world from uncovering their coordinated handy work. While one group proudly takes credit for the terror, another publicly denounces it. But most groups, while enjoying the power and attention the terrorists have bestowed on them, stand by with a look of victimhood saying: “I am a victim too because you condemn me and my peaceful religion when I did not do anything. That is not Islam and you are an Islamophobe.”
The West was told the MB and Fatah were now the moderate and humanitarian face of Islam that could be counted on and that could run Islamic government. Islam will present itself as working with the rest of the world only for the sake of establishing the Kalifate. The West has been only too happy to welcome the new face of the old terror groups to the camp of moderation. But the new face of evil after the MB became Al-Qaeda.Not only is there division of labor amongst Islamist groups, but these groups also often change roles, tactics and appearances — after birthing other more radical terror groups to do the dirty work of terror. Because the West and some Arab governments refuse to deal with terror organizations, these organizations play a game of presenting a face of rehabilitation and moderation, while delegating the terror and assassinations to newer groups. Old guard terror groups like the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and Fatah were able to change color and they assumed a new, but only cosmetic, appearance of moderation, but not before birthing the more violent Al-Qaeda and Hamas.
When the MB won the Egyptian elections, Islamists believed the Kalifate could be achieved through elections, avoiding the usual violent jihad. But when Egyptians realized they had made a mistake by electing the MB and 35,000,000 Egyptians revolted against Islamist rule, the dreams of a Kalifate through peaceful elections were defeated. The only solution for Muslims to achieve their Kalifate is the old fashioned way of 7th century Islam: pure violence, savagery and terror; thus the rise of the newest Islamist terror group, ISIS, while the MB takes a back seat.
When Al-Qaeda’s reputation tanked after 9/11, even inside the Middle East, the terror jihadists were forced into working under a new name — same goals, but with a more ferocious appetite for terror and torture. After the defeat of the budding Islamist State through elections in Egypt in 2013, the restrained beast of public beheadings hidden in the Islamic genie bottle finally exploded for the world to see in the form of ISIS; an organization that declared itself as the true long-awaited Islamic State. Force became the only choice. Coincidentally, this follows the example of Mohammed who tried to peacefully Islamize Mecca for 13 years but failed and could only Islamize Arabia by force, terror and the sword when he became a warrior in Medina.
ISIS rushed to declare itself as the Islamic State even before finishing the job of conquering all of Iraq and Syria. It was flaunting its savagery to the world in the hope of giving the message to reluctant Arab countries that they will be next. The plan is very similar to what Mohammed and his followers did in the 7thcentury: conquer Arabia quickly by force so they could move to more important goals of taking over the outside world, now the West and Israel. By doing that they are confirming to Muslims around the world that terror works and that their prophet Mohammed was correct when he said: “I have been victorious through terror.”
Bottom line: What legitimate Islamic organizations must adhere to is obeying Islamic commandments to conquer the world for Islam, defeat and humiliate non-Muslim nations and establish the Kalifate — to be ruled by sharia. That is the plan. It is not the opinion of the writer of this article, but it is the basic objective of Islamic law books, scriptures and preaching, which explicitly define jihad as a war with non-Muslims to establish the religion of Islam. To facilitate this mission, Islamic law freed Muslims from any restrictions on their behavior; they can wage offensive wars, kill, terrorize, behead, lie, deceive, humiliate, slander, use corporal punishment on women and children, and sacrifice the well being of the family, all for the purpose of the empowerment of Islam.
But instead of properly facing the 21 Century Islamic challenge, the West has chosen denial. Obama is being criticized for resorting to golf in a time of trouble, but that is perhaps his only outlet when he feels paralyzed, because what he believed and advocated Islam to be and what it is turned out to be polar opposites.
Also, instead of facing the incompetence and many obvious weaknesses of Islamic terror groups, the West has chosen to appease an enemy that only respects power. Thus, the Obama administration decided to be more concerned with appearances and saying instead of doing the right thing. For example, Obama likes to correct Americans on the proper pronunciation of Arabic names and expressions such as Pakistan and ISIL instead of ISIS, etc. But when the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria was declared the West was too embarrassed to call it what it called itself, the Islamic State, and found the English abbreviation ISIS more appropriate than the Arabic name that linked the new terrorist state to Islam.

Obama insists on presenting himself as more of an expert on Islam than the founders of ISIS when he stated, “ISIL speaks for no religion.” It is not appropriate for the US government or media to define what is or what is not Islam to Muslims who are reading from their books statements that command them to kill infidels. All we should do is take them for their word.I was recently asked by visitors from Egypt, “What is ISIS?” My answer was, it is the preferred name the US administration and media use to refer to the newly declared Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Their response was, “Why? In Arabic they call themselves ‘The Islamic State?’” I told them it is a long story, but the West does not want to offend Muslims who believe that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism, tyranny and hatred.
Both the US government and media have decided, long before Obama, that it would be the wise thing to do to keep US citizens uninformed about the true goals of Islam. The goal of this policy was partially to convince Islamic terror groups to leave the West alone and perhaps in the long run Islam will reform on its own one day. But unfortunately history was not on the side of this theory. Appeasement did not work for Coptic Christians in Egypt nor for Zoroastrians in Persia when in the 7th century the two ancient civilizations fell to the Arab Islamic invasion in the same year. Both Egypt and Persia tried to appease but failed to win hearts and minds of the Muslim invaders who used the most barbaric forms of terror and tyranny to Islamize and Arabize both civilizations. Both Egypt and Persia never saw their glory days again and today they are incapable of ruling themselves without the usual Sharia-enforced oppression and tyranny.
What everyone misses here is the right of the American people to know the full truth about their new enemy directly and honestly from their politicians and media. By caring about the feelings of Muslims more than American citizens’ right to the truth, and without naming Islam by name, the US government and media will usher America into a dark phase marking the beginning of tyranny and the end of liberty.

Why I Support ISRAEL?

By Nasir Ali

With every news of another death, Israeli or Palestinian, my very heart bleeds. I do not believe or hope in my heart of any lasting peace in Middle East, because my optimism continuously marred by false "truths" of Islamic Sharia lovers, who are openly opposed to Israel's very existence, constantly chanting, "Death to the Jews;" what if such threats were aimed at their families? The horrors of this dispute and constant war has unleashed upon the people of the region are farcical and tragic, beyond words.
In my own small way, I am trying to shed some light on the truth, not in the defense of anyone or against of anyone. So then, let me shed some light on some common misconceptions, distortions of the truth, and outright lies.
I implore Muslims to open their minds, hearts, and listen to reason for once, to gain reliable knowledge about Israel and a concise and clear understanding of this conflict instead of the gospel of catastrophe, martyrdom, death, and Jihad. This is sin even to think to kill any human being without any valid reason; rather you want to kill all Jews of this planet, why? They are also human beings, why you want to follow the barbaric Sharia Laws that openly encourage vandalism and Holocaust.
If Muslims really want ‘Peace’ then the only logical answer is to compromise on a two-state solution, but the problem can not solve because Muslims are not interested in peace, rather they want to cut down all Jews in ‘Pieces.’
This is not a really complex conflict in the world; rather I think it is the easiest conflict in the world. Because Israel recognizes the right of Palestinian that they have their own state and they live in peace and tranquility. The problem starts when not only Palestinian but the entire Muslim world does not recognize the same right of the tiny Jewish state of Israel to exist since its birth.
Israel also do not believe in imperialism because after a decade in 1978, entire Sinai Peninsula was given back to Egypt after peace agreement; a land bigger than Israel itself and with oil resources! Israel is always been willing to do the same thing with Palestinians, if Palestinians also recognize Israel as a sovereign Jewish state and promise to live in peace and harmony with it. Unfortunately, Muslims always glorify terrorism, humiliation of Jews and wants to annihilate Jews completely then of course it will turn in a complex conflict.
Very strange and inhumane, 22 Arab countries and total 56 Muslim countries, and there is only one tiny Jewish state in the world, smaller in size than El Salvador! If Israeli lay down arms, without any delay, according the beliefs and tenets of the Muslims, destruction of Israel and mass genocide of Jewish population will happen. On the contrary if Muslims and especially Arabs lay down arms against Israel, peace is guaranteed immediately.  
After the greatest atrocities of the Holocaust, Israel state was founded within the ancestral homeland of its original habitants viz the Jews; Israel was not founded on land stolen from the Palestinian people. There has never been a state in the Middle East known as Palestinian that was not Jewish state. According to the history first Kingdom: 1000 – 586 B.C, second Kingdom 538 – 63 B.C and today Israel is the third state to exist in the same land. There was never any Arab state, Muslim state and never Palestinian state. I want to ask Muslims, why can not the one Jewish state be allowed to exist in their ancestral land?
My pals, even the close ones taunt me of pro Israel and the West, that how being as a humanist and pacifist you can justify the killing of innocent people and children? I don't, I can't…. As a matter of fact, I spent 26 years of my life in Middle East and I know all Arab nationalities, their mentality, nature and hatred towards Jews; the small children are taught there to hate from the day one. This is brainwashing and entirely inhumane. When you are utilizing your own children, women and civilians as human shield then it is nearly impossible to avoid civilian causalities, remember you are in the state of war with Israel, not indulging in Picnic or love.
Israel intentionally do not target civilians or is not committing any Genocide, otherwise this conflict can be solved in a few days, this is Muslims’ good luck that Jews and rest of the world are not the follower of their barbaric Sharia laws, they are civilized people, otherwise……!
Whenever possible, Israel goes to great lengths to try and avoid civilian causalities; I admit, in war horrific and tragic mistakes happen. Please tell me honestly, what would you do in such scenario, how to deal with the people whose slogan is "We love death more than the Jews love life". 
How do you deal with the people who believe in sacrificing even their women and children as suicide bombers, strapping explosives to their bodies and seducing them to go to the area of highest civilian concentration that they can reach and kill themselves and as many around them as possible?
Dear reader, if you are not a hypocrite and a liar then tell me, what if such threats were aimed at your own family? No matter how horrible the consequences of the decision may be would you not do whatever it took to save them?   
Israel is not the only best model of democracy and freedom in the Middle East rather there is no comparison of  Israel with all 56 Muslim countries of the world; a country surrounded by 22 hostile Muslim countries, where people are able to enjoy freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Israel is a country where Israeli Muslim Arabs also share all benefits without any discrimination.
On the contrary, in oil rich Muslim countries, Arabs treat you as animals, despite believing and share the same religion, but you are not more than a slave; Modern Slavery, keep you living in fear, to horrify you, and to profit from it.!
I want to make my voice heard and spread this message of truth that the Crusades, Inquisition, the Persian and Ottoman Empires, the Holocaust, all have been trying to exterminate the Jewish nation from this planet for thousands of years. No one succeeds, the Nation of Israel lives and the Jewish people will endure.

According to the verses of the Quran regarding the Jews; Jews are people of various bad qualities, known for their loathsome characters and contemptible behavior; they are liars, ingrates, selfish, arrogant, rebels, lawbreakers, cowardly naggers and cheaters, prone to crime and aggression etc… Dear Muslims, please see your own character and your history in the light of these verses; in fact these verses fit upon you instead of Jews, you deserve wrath of the God not the Jews!
