Digging deeper into Islam

To the editor:

On Jan. 16, SV Yumlu responded to my earlier letter "By all means, speak out about the war" and was particularly concerned about my statement, "Sept. 11, 2001, taught us that Islam is not a religion of peace. Mohammed's teaching and the Koran called for the world to be converted to Islam, by the sword if necessary." SV Yumlu challenges me to show where I found this information in the Koran.

Koran, Sura 9 is generally known as the war chapter (others also demonstrate the coercive nature of Islam). But it is not so simple as to just quote this or that verse because Islamic law has evolved through interpretation of the other foundational documents of Islam---the Hadith and the Sira-- along with the Koran.

The proof really is in the evolution of the Salafist (fundamentalist) strain of Islam and the role Jihad (or holy war) plays in the branch of Islam that now holds this religion in its clutches. This school of thought was not created out of thin air. And I am anxious (and hopeful) for SV Yumlu to show me that these Islamic sects are counter to Koranic teaching.

Briefly, the Salafist movement of Islam includes the Wahabies of Saudi Arabia (Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda are from this branch of Islam ). Lest the reader thinks we Americans are somehow to blame for creating militant Islam, the Wahabist sect came into being in the early 1700's before there was ever a United States of America.

Another militant member sect of Salafi Islam is the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna during a time when we in America were pretty busy with the Great Depression. Al-Banna wrote a list of what Islam is, "Islam is a faith and worship...a religion and a state....It is a Koran and a sword."

A separate strain of Islam but with similar Jihadist goals is the Khumeinists (Iran).

Rather than ask me where the admonition to violence is in the Koran, it might be more instructive to ask the Jihadist where they get it! If not from the Koran and its foundational documents, where does this Jihadist ideology come from? And, if not from the teachings of Mohammed, are those sects mentioned above and those Muslim acts cited below distortions of the religion of peace?

Do Muslims today want to convert the world to Islam through warlike means similar to those used by Mohammed and his 7th Century followers? If not, then good Muslims, and I am sure SV Yumlu is one, should now join together in a worldwide condemnation (with words and actions) of those who have deviated from the true faith with their demands that the world convert to Islam.

When Fox reporters Steve Centanni and Olaf Wigg were kidnapped in Lebanon last fall, their Muslim captors released them only after they converted to Islam. Where did those kidnappers get this notion? Did they just fabricate this idea on the spot?

Last fall, when Adam Gadahn, the American convert to Islam sent a message to Pres. Bush and others to convert or die, was he speaking for Islam? Where did he get the notion that it was either convert or die?

When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asked the American people just a few months ago to convert to Islam or suffer the consequences, where on earth did he get this notion? Is there no basis in Islam (the Koran and teachings of Mohammed) for this request to convert to avoid being attacked?

When just a few weeks ago Jihadists in Thailand beheaded Buddhist farmers and teachers (no Christians or Jews involved here), where did this come from? What beef could the Jihadists have with Buddhists?

On 9/11, when the Muslim terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center with chants of Allah u Akhbar, were they perverting the religion of peace?

Americans understand that actions speak louder than words.

In the weeks and months following 9/11, I was convinced that there had been a terrible perversion of Islam. I expected good Muslims worldwide to rally and rise up against this radical ideology, to admit the flaws in this violent Jihadist strain of Islam.

With each passing year and no uprising of good and moderate Muslims, I and others fear that this will not happen. Will history condemn the good Muslims' silence? How many times have you heard, if only more good Germans had spoken out in the 1930's could the horrific carnage of World War II been averted?

There is, however, a little ray of hope. Canadian author and Islam reformist Irshad Manji just announced that a Muslim anti-Jihad conference will take place in Florida in March. She is seeking to encourage brave Muslims to stand up to the Jihadists in hopes of recovering what she considers the true Islam---a religion of peace. SV Yumlu must see that her mission is for "the sake of our future life." I, for one, will be cheering for her!

Just one last thought. By dragging in the Pope's words and bashing Catholicism, SV Yumlu and Rick Rotten (in the companion letter to SV Yumlu on January 16, 2007) are attempting to silence criticism by using the moral equivalence argument. The Pope can say what he wants, just as I can, and just as Rick Rotten and SV Yumlu can. Those deviants from the true faith of Islam who reacted violently around the world, even killing a nun, in reaction to the Pope's words destroy any moral equivalence argument one might make. Actions speak louder than words.

Thank God for free speech in a free and civilized society


Blogger note: "With each passing year and no uprising of good and moderate Muslims..."

I do not believe the notion of "moderate muslims" exists on the street in the Middle East. I believe this is a sanitized Westernized term used to coddle Westerners, to keep violence from breaking out, to keep civil war at bay. While the government sits and does nothing when known cases of terrorism happen almost daily now on the streets of America.

That said, this is STILL the best damn country in the world.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations

CAIR's Hall of Shame

Insightful Moments of CAIR History (Arranged Chronologically)

July 2, 1998

CAIR Founder Lets the Cat Out of the Bag

At a Muslim conference, CAIR founder Omar Ahmad tells the room that Islamic hegemony should be the goal of every Muslim in America. His famous statement is caught by a journalist:

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

Although other CAIR leaders, such as Ibrahim Hooper, have said essentially the same thing in candid moments, Ahmad has spent the past nine years pretending that he did not make that statement (perhaps there was a missing preposition or comma). To our knowledge, however, he has never denied that he wants to see America under Islamic law.

CAIR Organizes Protest against Billboard Image of Osama

Two months after Osama Bin Laden kills over 200 innocent people in attacks on U.S. embassies in Africa, a Los Angeles radio station posts a billboard image of Osama with the words "Sworn Enemy."

CAIR defends Osama from allegations that he was involved in the attacks, and vigorously protests the billboard with rallies and a petition drive.

It is not until three months after 9/11 that the organization issues its only denouncement of the most famous Islamic terrorist in the world.

CAIR Redirects 9/11 Relief Donations to an Islamic Terrorist Group

This one is so despicable that it is mind-boggling how CAIR has even a shred of legitimacy left in Washington.

In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the organization posts a link on their site that purports to collect donations for the "NY/DC Emergency Relief Fund." The money that is collected from concerned donors, however, is redirected to the Holy Land Foundation, an organization that funnels money to the Hamas terrorist organization.

Baptist Missionaries Gunned Down in Yemen
CAIR Implies They Had it Coming

On December 30, 2002, three American missionaries, including two women, were brutally gunned down by an Islamic fundamentalist in Yemen, posing as a father carrying a child. The three were dedicated to improving the medical condition of impoverished Muslims, and were murdered inside the hospital in which they worked.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations initially denounces the murder, but then releases a highly inappropriate press release suggesting that it is the missionaries who bring such attacks on themselves by sharing their faith in Muslim lands.

(At the time, CAIR was engaged in its own campaign of Muslim evangelism in America).

CAIR Civil Rights Director Pleads Guilty to Terror Charges
One of Several CAIR Staff Members with Terror Ties

CAIR's former communications specialist and civil rights director is one of several of the organization's staff members to be arrested on charges relating to terrorism. Some of the organization's current leaders, such as Nihad Awad, are on record expressing support for Islamic terrorist groups such as Hamas.

To our knowledge, CAIR has never provided law enforcement with a single security tip in the War on Terror.

CAIR Sues Anti-CAIR... Big Mistake

March 31, 2004 is the high-water mark of CAIR's legal effort to intimidate Anti-CAIR (and any like-minded Americans) into staying quiet about the organization's scurrilous activities. After filing the ill-advised $1 million lawsuit against Andrew Whitehead for calling it a "terrorist-front organization" that receives partial funding from terrorists... things pretty much go downhill from there.

Someone apparently forgot to tell CAIR that a defendant has the right to discovery, which, in this case, means that CAIR would have to open its financial records to the light of day so that everyone could see who actually funds their semi-subversive activities.

The organization first tries to save face about a year later by dropping most of its original complaints. Then comes the final humiliation of having to all but declare defeat by dropping all claims.

Exact details of the "settlement" have not been disclosed, but needless to say, Anti-CAIR has not changed any of the statements that originally prompted the suit and, for it's part, CAIR merely cemented its reputation as a bully with a shady past.

CAIR Gets Caught Fabricating Hate Crimes

Daniel Pipes and Sharon Chada take a hard look at CAIR's database of hate crimes and discover that the organization engages in blatantly deceptive practices, including falsifying detail and inflating statistics in order to manipulate public opinion.

Pipes and Chadha find that CAIR misrepresented events that had been determined not to be hate crimes, including a Muslim man who set fire to his own business, and falsified others, such as a bombing in Houston that never occurred.

CAIR's $1000 Rosa Parks Stunt

In a shameful exploitation of a civil rights icon, CAIR establishes a measly $1000 scholarship "in the name" of Rosa Parks merely to use her image on their website for conspicuous PR purposes.

The picture of Rosa Parks appears prominently on the CAIR site every day of the year, even as the organization adamantly refuses to denounce the Islamic Republic of Sudan for engineering the racist genocide of 250,000 black Africans at the hands of Arab Muslims in Darfur.

Meanwhile, the organization does what it can to protect the perceived rights of fellow Arabs in the Middle East, even if their condition is hardly comparable to what Arabs are imposing on Africans.

Extreme Site Makeover Following Deadly Jewish Center Attack

After weeks of demonizing Israel by peppering its website with one-sided articles and pictures on the Hezbollah-provoked conflict in Lebanon and the Hamas-provoked conflict in Gaza, the Council on American-Islamic Relations is forced into a dramatic site makeover on the news that a Muslim gunmen shoots six women at a Seattle Jewish Center, killing one.

CAIR quickly pulls its most inflammatory articles and images from its front page and replaces them with a stale public relations statement "condemning" the attack. It is not until the following week that the organization is able to return to whipping up anti-Jewish passions - and then with a noticeable drop in enthusiasm.

CAIR Identifies Omar Bakri as a "Muslim Voice against Extremism"

Sheikh Omar Bakri is fond of issuing incendiary rhetoric against non-Muslims, such as this command for believers to cut the throats of Westerners:

"When you meet [Westerners], slice their own necks. And when you make the blood spill all over, and the enemy becomes so tired, now start to take from them prisoners."

However, CAIR refers to Omar Bakri as a "Muslim Voice against Extremism and Terrorism," along with Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a strong advocate of suicide bombings, and former Iranian President, Mohammad Khatami, a leading supporter of the Hezbollah terrorist group.

(The best examples of humanity that the Religion of Peace has to offer seem to have a pretty tough time making the cut for the rest of us).

CAIR Condemns a Christian Video Game
(But Not Real-Life Muslim Sniper Videos)

CAIR puts its foot in its mouth over the Christmas holiday by condemning a Christian video game as being an exercise in violence, in which "Muslims are either forced to convert to Islam or shot to death."

Apparently they never looked closely at the game, since it turns out to be an anti-violence game that has nothing to do with Muslims.

Critics also wonder why CAIR never bothered to condemn the videotaped shootings of American soldiers in Iraq, which were being released at the same time as the video game. Article

Liberal Senator Rescinds Award to CAIR Based on "Concerns"

Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer extends an award to a CAIR operative in California, but subsequently rescinds it over concerns that the organization refuses to denounce terrorist groups.

Embarrassed, CAIR quickly calls a meeting with the Senator in which its leaders are given the opportunity to denounce Hamas, one Islam's bloodiest terrorist groups. Amazingly, they are unable to bring themselves to do this.

CAIR Condemns Rubber Duck Hostage Video

The organization that has absolutely nothing to say when brutal videos of Muslims beheading and slashing the throats of innocent hostages while screaming praises to Allah are released suddenly finds a hostage video that it doesn't like...

Unfortunately, it isn't the killing of a real person in the name of Islam. It is a rubber duck which had been "captured" by Long Island University students in a mock video.

CAIR is more concerned that the students used "phony Middle Eastern accents" in a prank video, than it is about the most horrible violence committed by terrorists on tape.

Cheney lauds Australian loyalty in war on terrorism
Feb 23, 2007, 0:47 GMT

Sydney - US Vice President Dick Cheney made an emotive appeal Friday to Australia to keep its 1,400 troops in Iraq.

'Americans know that for this country standing by your mate when he's in a fight are more than words in a song, and they signify a way of life,' Cheney told a Sydney gathering.

Highlighting the divisiveness of the Iraq war, police outside Cheney's harbour-side hotel battled with protesters determined to disrupt the first engagement on his four-day trip.

Prime Minister John Howard is behind in the opinion polls in the run up to an election later this year, when he will try for a fifth successive term. He has pledged to stay the course in Iraq despite voters telling pollsters that they want the troops to come home.

Opposition Labor Party leader Kevin Rudd, scheduled to meet with Cheney, has pledged to withdraw from Iraq if he wins at an election expected in November.

Cheney characterized Iraq as integral to the war against Islamic terrorists who want to 'establish a caliphate covering a region from Spain across North Africa across the Middle East and South Asia all the way around Indonesia.'

Australia is the United States' closest ally in the region and has a formal defence treaty with Washington that was invoked after the September 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

Australian troops have fought alongside Americans in every major conflict of the last 100 years.

Seattle, Wash.
Naveed Afzal Haq, 30, is arrested and charged with killing one woman and wounding five others at the downtown Jewish Federation building. The shooter declared "I am a Muslim American, angry at Israel," according to eyewitnesses. "There’s nothing to indicate that it’s terrorism related," according to the FBI.

10pm Eastern update: AP now reporting.

The man suspected in a fatal shooting rampage hid behind a potted plant in a Jewish charity's foyer and forced his way through a security door by holding a gun to a 13-year-old girl's head, the police chief said Saturday. Once inside, police say, Naveed Afzal Haq opened fire with two semiautomatic pistols. One woman, Pam Waechter, 58, of Seattle was killed at the scene. Five more women were wounded.

Haq, 30, was ordered held on $50 million bail Saturday pending formal charges of murder and attempted murder. Haq, a Muslim, told authorities he was angered by the war in Iraq and U.S. military cooperation with Israel. "He pointedly blamed the Jewish people for all of these problems," Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske said at a news conference Saturday.

Dr. Wameeth Fadhli is charged with shooting an unarmed bicyclist, who was hit in the chest and shoulder. According to witnesses, the victim was riding his bicycle when a sport utility vehicle pulled alongside and Fadhli reportedly began firing what they described as a pistol. The witnesses told police the shooter was alone and wearing what appeared to be surgical scrubs. Galveston Daily News: "Assistant district attorney Xochitl Vandiver, who recommended [$60,000] bond after conferring with investigators, said the amount was higher than usual for that charge because of concerns for community safety. “At this point, this looks like it could have been just a random shooting, and that makes it a pretty scary crime,” she said."

AP: "'[He carried a note blaming the United States for using Israel as "an instrument' against his people. The note found in Ali Hassan Abu Kamal's pocket contains 'rambling, angry stuff,' and appears to contradict claims by the man's family that the shooting had nothing to do with politics, a high-ranking police source said last night. The letter also expressed anger at France and England for using Israel as 'an instrument' against Palestinians, and indicated that Mr. Abu Kamal planned to vent his anger at the Empire State Building, the source said.'"

Rashid Baz, a Lebanese livery cab driver, opened fire on a van full of Hasidic Jewish boys on the Brooklyn Bridge, killing one and wounding several others. He was sentenced to 141 years in prison. ME Forum: "The Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) at one point ascribed his motive to 'road rage.' But then, in December 2000, federal authorities changed their minds and announced that Baz’s actions were 'the crimes of a terrorist.'"

Daniel Pipes flashback: Sudden Jihad Syndrome

Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch:

[O]nce again the media will ignore the question of why a man who describes himself as a Muslim American angry at Israel would think that murder of innocents was an appropriate outlet for his anger. No one will ever consider whether such behavior is encouraged by the texts and atmospherics of Islam, and if so, what can be done about it.
The shooting came a day after the FBI had warned Jewish organizations nationwide to be on alert after Hezbollah leaders in Lebanon and al-Qaida's second in command urged that the war raging in the Middle East be carried to the U.S. However, the law-enforcement source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there is no evidence Haq was involved with any group.

When (if ever) will law enforcement officials realize that it is enough for Zawahiri and others to say this sort of thing? That that in itself is enough to move some Muslims to act? There doesn't need to be any organizational connection for there to be an ideological connection, an identity of motive and goal.


It's the jihad, stupid.

Shooting in Seattle: Muslim revenge

The Infidel Revolution

Frontpage Interview's guest today is Frontpage Interview's guest today is Bill Warner, the director of the Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI). CSPI's goal is to teach the doctrine of political Islam through its books and it has produced a series on its focus. Mr. Warner did not write the CSPI series, but he acts as the agent for a group of scholars who are the authors.

FP: Mr. Warner, welcome back to Frontpage Interview.

In our last interview, you did a powerful job in crystallizing the mortal danger that Political Islam poses to all non-Islamic societies. I think that interview set the stage for a new mandatory discussion: What should we do to protect ourselves from the threat? Yes, we need to understand Political Islam. But once we understand it, what do we do about it? Or is there anything we can really do?

Mr. Warner, let's begin with a general question. What has marked our resistance so far?

Warner: Our resistance so far has been the first stage: to know the enemy and to develop a strategy. We are now coming to the end of it.

Since 9/11 we have had intellectual warriors who have studied Political Islam, built websites, blogged and written books. We now know the entire scope of Islamic doctrine and the biggest elements of a repressed and denied history of the dhimmitude, and annihilation of cultures. To repeat, we now know the doctrine and history of Political Islam at a strategic level. We now know the enemy and this is a mark of our success.

FP: Just for the sake of our readers, define "dhimmi" please.

Warner: A dhimmi is a second class citizen of an Islamic state. They can remain Christian or Jew, but pay a special tax and have very few legal rights. They are forbidden to study the Koran. Hence, today a dhimmi who defers to Political Islam is ignorant of the doctrine of Islam and never challenges it. Dhimmitude is the state of mind of a dhimmi. We are all in debt to Bat Yeor for her research and books on the dhimmi.

FP: Crystallize for us who the enemy is.

Warner: Our enemy is the civilization of dualism. The ultimate nature of Islamic civilization is duality. Dualistic Islamic ethics and politics propose one behavior for Muslims and another behavior for the unbelievers (kafirs). Islam has declared that the civilization of dualism must annihilate that civilization which is based upon a unitary view of humanity--ours. It is logically impossible for a civilization based upon a unitary view of humanity to co-exist with a civilization based upon duality.

History confirms that becoming Islamic means that every aspect of the targeted civilization must cease to exist. And it works 100% of the time. There is no such thing as a culture that is only partially Islamic. The evidence is exquisitely clear.

So for a people who have been raised with an ignorance of Political Islam we have made incredible strides. Remember we had only apologies from those who should have been our first line of defense--our artists, intellectuals, media and the educational system. In a sense we have started at less than zero.

We should all stop, take a deep breath, look at what we have done and congratulate ourselves for completing the first stage: Know the Enemy. Then we need take another deep breath and get back to work: Strategy.

FP: So what should our strategy be?

Warner: Our strategy must be the salvation of our precious civilization. We must save our very selves.

All of this cannot be accomplished without the Mind of War. There is a psychology of war that puts everything in a different perspective. We are rich, fat, dumb and happy living in the land that everyone wants to emigrate to. It is easy to turn on the Super Bowl, plan the bar mitzvah, work for a promotion and just let Political Islam have its way. The Mind of War sees that all of what we have is an illusion, that the cancer has started to metastasize. Until we develop the Mind of War, we are doomed. We must have that emergency reserve that war brings out.

Without this state of mind, we will lose all we have. The great civilization of Coptic Egypt of the Pharaohs that lasted 5000 years is gone, a corpse buried beneath Political Islam. Liberal democracy is only 200 years old. Political Islam is 1400 years old and exploding in power. Without the Mind of War, our civilization will become extinct under the impact of the civilization of duality.

FP: This strategy would seem difficult for us to attain because we appear to be very afraid to make comments about Political Islam in our own society, no?

Warner: It is our dhimmitude. It's bizarre. We are afraid of Political Islam and its followers. They are not remotely afraid of us. Why is this? We are in a psychotic state of fear and shame caused by a past of 1400 years of dhimmitude and slavery. This psychosis is the state of the molested mind. The horror of Islamic politics produces a denial that the deaths, conquests, slavery, rape, humiliation, degradation, suffering and civilizational destruction ever happened. The molested mind denies the history and doctrine of Political Islam. That is the mind of dhimmitude.

Our civilization must acknowledge our status. We are still dhimmis. It has been 1400 years of servitude, slavery, dhimmitude, ignorance and a repressed and denied history. When we understand our history we will see exactly how repressed and in denial we are. The first mark of the dhimmi is ignorance of Political Islam.

We must acknowledge our suffering. We must decide that 270,000,000 of our ancestors did not die in vain. We must gain insight into why we know so little. There is a very deep reason in our collective psyche why we choose to remain ignorant. We are afraid to admit our dhimmitude and slavery to Political Islam. A million Europeans were captured and sold into Islamic slavery. If the history of slavery were completely told, whites and blacks could see each other in a new light.

In the past, this shame, ignorance and fear could be ignored. But now Political Islam is here and has us by the throat. Our future as a civilization depends upon realizing how close to annihilation we are. Only a revolution can save us. We must have a revolt of the dhimmis, a Dhimmi Revolution. After 1400, years it is time we faced our shame and fear with the Mind of War.

This common suffering must be acknowledged and told. The history and stories must be told within our groups and shared with the other groups. Once we know about the Tears of Jihad, we will be strong and courageous. Once we remember the suffering of dhimmitude, we can stop being afraid, have the Mind of War and be heroes in the war to save our civilization.

Luckily the cure for dhimmitude is very simple. Once you know the history and doctrine of Political Islam, you cease being a dhimmi. Knowledge is the key and the only key to freedom from shame and fear. We shall know the truth and the truth will make us free. Our future depends upon our facing the past.

FP: You refer to 270 million deaths at the hands of Political Islam. Can you shed light on that figure?

Warner: The figure of 270 million is a rough estimate of the death of non-Muslims by the political act of jihad. It is calculated as such:


Thomas Sowell estimates that eleven million slaves were shipped across the Atlantic and fourteen million were sent to the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East. [1] David Livingstone estimated that for every slave who reached the plantation, five others died by being killed in the raid or died on the forced march from illness and privation. [2] So, for 25 million slaves delivered to the market, we have the collateral death of about 120 million people. Muslims ran all the wholesale slave trade in Africa. Death toll: 120 million Africans


The number of Christians martyred by Islam is nine million.[3] A rough estimate by Raphael Moore in History of Asia Minor is that another fifty million died in wars by jihad. So to account for the one million African Christians killed in the 20th century we have: 60 million Christians


Koenard Elst in Negationism in India [4] gives an estimate of eighty million Hindus killed in the total jihad against India. The country of India today is only half the size of ancient India, due to jihad. Death toll: 80 million Hindus


Jihad killed the Buddhists in Turkey, Afghanistan, along the Silk Route, and in India. The total is roughly ten million. [5] Death toll: 10 million Buddhists


The jihad in Arabia was 100 percent effective but the numbers were in the thousands, not millions. After that the Jews submitted and became the dhimmis (servants and second class citizens) of Islam and did not have geographic political power.

This gives a rough estimate of 270 million killed by jihad.

FP: Thank you. Sounds like a holocaust to me -- a holocaust that was never taught to me in school or in university.

So let's get back to our enemy: Political and Ethical Dualism. But we also have another enemy in terms of the people in our own society who apologize for it, right?

Warner: Yes, Political and Ethical Dualism is the far enemy, the near enemy is its apologists. In the end we will win or lose depending on how we deal with our dhimmi leaders in the media, schools and politics. Once we win the Dhimmi Revolution, winning the war with Political Islam is possible. If we don't win the revolution, our civilization will become extinct.

And what is the nature of the near enemy, the apologists? They want to maintain ignorance about Mohammed and Political Islam's history. Our experience is that when an apologist learns the truth about the doctrine and history of Political Islam, the danger is revealed.

There are basically two kinds of knowledge about Political Islam--knowledge of doctrine and knowledge of history. The full cure requires both. There is a 1400 year-old history of slavery and dhimmitude, so when you are curing ignorance with the history of Political Islam, there is a lot of history to choose from.

The political doctrine is much simpler. You can hold the doctrine in one hand--Koran, Sira and Hadith. Although a detailed knowledge about the Koran is useful, the most powerful element of the doctrine is Mohammed. Mohammed is Islam, so we must educate others about Mohammed, Islam's first politician, and its sacred political model.

FP: Fair enough, so what do we do, write more books?

Warner: We cannot win by writing another book, putting up another website or blog. Those things are individual in nature. We must move to the political phase. This means boots on the ground, people meeting in the same room, people talking to people. Politics. Groups. Meetings. Real people. Not just computer screens, or books. We must have action against the near enemy in our town. This is the battleground we will live or die on as a civilization.

It is impossible for individuals to win this revolution. Our first step must be to build community. So how do we build community? Of course, there are many ways to go about this. Some people can build within a present group. An example would be forming groups within a church or synagogue. Conventions must be held to form strategies.

We must also build community out of strangers. We must develop ways to meet others in our city. Larger communities must be formed from the small communities. We need ways for revolutionaries to learn what is going on with other groups to learn from each other's failures and successes.

A community should be formed out of those who have similar functions with the revolution. As an example, writers should get to know each other personally. Website owners have common problems and need to build community to deal with those common problems. People who write letters to the editor should get to know each other.

We have to start working in groups. Join the pack.

FP: It would be very hard to start working in groups because our society is so divided, no?

Warner: Yes, and we must face a fact about getting together in groups. Our civilization may have the Golden Rule as its ideal moral law, but let's face it, we all fall short. We are endlessly divided with gripes, feuds and sore history. Hindus don't trust the Christians; blacks have a grudge with whites, and so on. And there are further divisions within each group.

We must face the political reality today. We either learn to work together on a common political ground or become extinct like Buddhism in Afghanistan. We must have ambassadors between groups. If Protestant Christians get together to deal with Political Islam, they should invite Hindus and Orthodox Christians. Their mutual history of suffering at the hands of Political Islam can be a starting point of a political community. On this basis we can talk and work together.

FP: The task ahead is to confront a lot of ignorance, especially in the media.

Warner: Absolutely, every columnist, politician, preacher, priest, rabbi, artist, writer, professor, or correspondent who makes a statement, comment or conclusion about Political Islam and does not make reference to the death of 270,000,000 victims of jihad, dhimmitude, or the doctrine of Political Islam must be challenged about their ignorance. Every leader in every area must learn the history of dhimmitude, slavery and the life of Mohammed.

The Dhimmi Revolution must get in all leaders' faces and confront them with their ignorance. This has to be without blame. Our leaders are not stupid, but ignorant. And the reason they are ignorant is they grew up in a culture where their teachers were dhimmis, who submitted to Political Islam by remaining ignorant about our history of dhimmitude. These leaders bear the burden of 1400 years of ignorance. Each of them share the psychosis of the molested mind. A mind in denial and fear caused by the violence of dualistic Political Islam.

Our Dhimmi Revolution is about confronting ignorance. We must first educate ourselves and then our political opponents, the near enemy--the apologists.

FP: Can you talk a little bit more about strategy?

Warner: Our strategy must deal with three of the near enemy--the universities, the media and politicians. From a strategic standpoint they are similar. They are organizations that have a small number of middle managers and leaders. This means having a small target list to pressure, lobby and persuade. For instance, a letter to the editor at a paper should not only go to the opinion page editor but up and down the chain of command. Good information should permeate the organization.

Somewhere out there must be some software people who can help us form community and spread information to the right people. As an example: this type of software could be applied to an ongoing letters-to-the-editor group. Fellow writers could communicate with each other, build community and attract new writers, select targets and have organizational email lists of the managers and leaders of the targeted organization. Some of this is being done today, but it must become organized, coordinated and ongoing.

We must utilize the web for community and strategy. But we must also be in rooms with other people we recognize, be with groups who visit politicians and others we want to influence and persuade.

FP: So how do we teach ourselves?

Warner: Some of us must start teaching those who want to know. CSPI has seen that there are many who don't want to read about the doctrine or history of Political Islam. It is too frightening and depressing. But put them in a group and they love to hear about it and ask questions. There is a change in the air. Some churches are having lectures and classes. The few must teach the many. To take part in the Dhimmi Revolution, you first take the antidote to dhimmitude, knowledge.

FP: How about the universities? The truth about Political Islam is almost not even permitted there.

Warner: The universities are our number one target. Their influence is felt by the politicians and the media. At present the near enemies own the schools. The state universities offer some special opportunities. They are supposed to be in the business of knowledge and they are supported by our tax dollars. We must make demands that the schools teach the history of jihad, dhimmitude, the Tears of Jihad. We can use civil rights lawsuits that claim discrimination and bigotry in the history departments.

Imagine the uproar we can make by insisting that the full history of slavery be taught. We want all of this history taught, not just the West African limited edition. We have to learn the history of white slavery, Hindu slavery, African slavery taught at the taxpayers' schools. We must know how dualistic Islam enslaved all races, religions and cultures. Arabic has more words for slaves that any other language. We demand the end of ignorance about the history of Political Islam. It is our civil right and we must use every means possible to have the right to know our history of dhimmitude, death and slavery, particularly in a state-funded school.

Universities are a constant forum for Political Islam. We need to have groups visit the campuses and ask good questions. We must harangue, harass, pressure, and make visits to professors, department heads, deans and pressure for full debate. The department of humanities, women's studies, history, political science, African and Middle Eastern studies departments are all target rich environments. We must always push to have the full and true doctrine of Political Islam taught.

FP: What's after the universities?

Warner: Our politicians. We must use the politicians to pressure the state universities. And that means that we must pressure the politicians. Their ignorance will be our point of attack. We must constantly confront our leaders and show them the ways they speak and act like dhimmis. We must show how there is a cure for dhimmitude: the knowledge of the doctrine and history of Political Islam.

We must repeatedly bring up the lack of actual knowledge. We must demand that all politicians know what Sharia law is and what it means. We must demand that politicians learn the political doctrine of Islam. We must demand they know what a dhimmi is. The duality of Islamic ethics must be put before them. Every politician should know the numbers killed in jihad.

Mohammed's politics and character must be known. Once you know who Mohammed was, the next Muslim who bends your ear will be heard in a different tone. Every school board member, council member, legislator, and other elected officials must be visited and asked questions about his/her knowledge of Islam's first politician, Mohammed.

FP: Overall, there has to be a massive tactic of exposing ignorance.

Warner: Yes, and shaming ignorance. Any scholar of Political Islam will tell you that it is easy to learn about Political Islam and Mohammed. What is the most amazing thing about Political Islam is the grotesque ignorance by people who are otherwise well versed. We must shame our professors, thinkers, politicians, and media types with the ignorance.

We must also shame our artists and intellectuals regarding their lack of knowledge about Mohammed's persecution of artists and intellectuals. Each time Political Islam kills and threatens another artist or intellectual, we must attack the denial of our effete thinkers. We must show the artists and intellectuals their ignorance and dhimmitude and invite them to join the Dhimmi Revolution and produce art to free their civilization from dhimmitude.

In the end, the near enemy must understand that any statement, comment or opinion they make about Political Islam that does not mention violent jihad and Mohammed s based upon ignorance. The constant question that every follower of Political Islam, or apologist for Political Islam, must answer is, "What did Mohammed do or Allah say?" It is the only question and we must learn to answer it as well.

When we shame the apologists for their ignorance it must be without rancor. But they must face that their opinions about Political Islam show an ignorance about our dhimmi history, and the deaths of 270,000,000 victims of jihad.

FP: So some final words?

Warner: To win the Dhimmi Revolution, we must work as a community. We have to address the frequent hope seen on the web when someone proposes a great legal solution to our problem about Political Islam. But no matter what your idea is or how good it is, it doesn't matter. CSPI is aware of one Congressman who has the slightest awareness about Political Islam. Before we can implement any political ideas we must have a political base. At this time, we don't need great solutions, we need to prepare a trained political base before we can do anything. We must take the Dhimmi Revolution to every Congressman and every Senator and every state legislator before we can get a single bill passed.

The Dhimmi Revolution is to build community, know the far enemy, confront the near enemy.

In summary, we have finished the first stage of our struggle to defend our civilization--know the enemy and its dualistic politics and dualistic ethics. The age of individuals is coming to an end and we must enter the phase of grassroots politics. We are too weak and divided to confront Political Islam, the far enemy. We must first confront the near enemy, our apologists for Political Islam. The doctrine and history of Political Islam is the weapon we can use to reveal our near enemy's ignorance about Mohammed. We must turn to building community so that we can work in groups to do the necessary political work. We must harness existing groups and create special interest groups designed to carry the Dhimmi Revolution to the universities, politicians, artists, intellectuals and the media.
