It has been raging, uninhibited and unchallenged, for years…
The recently displaced archbishop of Mosul, Iraq was speaking with particular candor when I met him last fall in the Middle East.
He said, “People in the West say ‘they don’t know.’ How can you not know? You either support ISIS or you must have turned off all the satellites. I am sorry to say this, but my pain is big.”
Like so many Christians in Iraq and Syria who watched ISIS kidnap their leaders, burn their churches, sell their children, and threaten all others with conversion or beheading; the archbishop wonders how it is that these maniacs so easily took his home city this summer?
It is a good question.
Mosul is Iraq’s second largest city and was once the home of Iraq’s most vulnerable and persistent Christian community, tracing their lineage nearly to the time of Christ.
Now there are no Christians left. RTWT
I wrote the following nearly four years ago:
I have previously written about the genocidal campaign by islamic jihadis to eliminate or enslave Christians (and pretty much all non-muslims) here, here, here, here, here, and here, but of course even those posts barely touch the surface of what’s been going on and since the arrival of the “Arab Spring” uprisings in the islamic world, the tyranny against non-muslims, especially Christians, has really ramped up.
As relatively secular dictators are overthrown in country after country, pro-sharia islamic groups like the Muslim brotherhood are poised to fill the void and they are not interested in “coexisting” with what they consider to be inferior beings. The islamic supremacists find a friend in Obama, of course, and the enemedia, and even Conservative Americans are often blind to the savagery (or are useful idiots for it). The horror continues and the world looks the other way, they have learned nothing from history.
Islamorageboy mobs in Nigeria burn homes, churches and Christians as they riot over the fact that the muslim candidate for President of that country lost to a Christian. Read about it at Persecution.org and see updates at Atlas Shrugs and Jihad Watch about how the charred bodies of Christian dead line the streets. Over 100 Christians have been killed and more than 40 churches destroyed. RTWT
A few months and many anti-Christian islamic atrocities later, I again tried to warn people:
Genocidal jihadis have proved again and again and again that Christians are not even safe inside their own churches. The anti-Christian jihad holocaust rages on and of course, the blithe world looks the other way. Keep ignoring it, and eventually it will be coming for YOU. MORE
In the post quoted above, I cited a news story out of Pakistan about a Christian teenager who had gone missing and was presumed to have been kidnapped from inside of his own church by muslims – which is not an uncommon occurrence there, apparently. Clergy had been interviewed about the kidnapping and other evil acts by muslims against Christians, and their “blame the victim” dhimmitude was appalling but not surprising. Christians are blamed for upsetting muslims by being Christian and going to worship in a Church, and Christians are blamed for upsetting muslims by being Christian and worshiping inside of private homes (because it is not safe for a Christian to be inside of a Christian Church during the genocide holocaust of Christians that everybody is trying to ignore).
Blame the victim. Nice. See, it isn’t the poor misunderstanders of islam who are to blame, it is the Christians who have provoked them by offensively daring to utter non-islamic prayers from inside a private home! How dare they!
So islamic supremacists will harm you if you are a non-muslim and try to worship in a church, and if you decide it may be safer to worship inside a private home instead, they will attack you and it will be your fault!
Don’t think for one second that it can’t happen here; islam encroaches and devours civilizations incrementally, so the infidels will not notice until it is far too late, like the frog dropped into a pot of cool water who doesn’t realize he needs to get out as the temperature rises by single degrees, it never occurs to frog to leave the lovely warm water and the water soon boils. Islam intends to make non-muslims into their own version of frog soup. RTR
The rest of the post linked above has a whole lot of math that I borrowed from an article Pamela Geller had posted that I wish people would have taken note of then, and that I still wish they’d consider now, about just how little islamic presence it requires for the oppression and the killings that we see “over there” to begin “over here” (as some of you already know these things are indeed already happening right freaking here and right freaking now).
Ten years after Al Qaeda’s master plan for an islamic caliphate by 2020 was published, Pamela Geller writes about how events have unfolded as planned and what we can expect next:
Back in 2005, Jordanian journalist Fouad Hussein published al-Qaida’s manifesto. In his book, he outlined al-Qaida’s seven-point plan over a 20-year period: “An Islamic Caliphate in Seven Easy Steps.” Ten years later, we can see how al-Qaida and other Islamic jihad groups have followed this plan to the letter – with remarkable success, thanks to the weakness, fecklessness and willful ignorance of Western leaders.
Sept. 11 was to wake up the world to Islam. Did it not do just that? Didn’t the Ground Zero Mosque imam Faisal Abdul Rauf say as much in 2010 when the vicious fight over that mosque was underway? “9/11,” he declared, “was a watershed, was a major milestone, and a major catalytic force in, in catalyzing the attention toward the issue of Islam, its presence in the West, and it brought into much greater prominence our work and the importance of our work.”
After that was to come “Opening Eyes,” a phase that was to last until 2006, during which “al-Qaida wants an organization to develop into a movement.” This was to be followed by “Arising and Standing Up” from 2007 to 2010, during which, according to Hussein, “There will be a focus on Syria.”
During the fourth phase, from 2010 to 2013, “Hussein writes that al-Qaida will aim to bring about the collapse of the hated Arabic governments.” Right on schedule, Mubarak was toppled in Egypt, Gadhafi in Libya and Ben Ali in Tunisia, with Assad facing an ongoing civil war in Syria. Then during the fifth phase, an “Islamic state, or caliphate,” would actually be declared. Musharbash wrote: “The plan is that by this time, between 2013 and 2016, Western influence in the Islamic world will be so reduced and Israel weakened so much, that resistance will not be feared.”
Here we are. All this has unfolded just as they said: the awakening of the ummah is illustrated by the Western Muslims flocking to wage jihad in the Middle East. And the focus on Syria is also exactly as predicted. It’s amazing.
So what is to follow? Musharbash wrote: “Hussein believes that from 2016 onward there will be a period of ‘total confrontation.’As soon as the caliphate has been declared the ‘Islamic army’ it will instigate the ‘fight between the believers and the non-believers’ which has so often been predicted by Osama bin Laden.”
After that, the “final stage is described as ‘definitive victory.’ Hussein writes that in the terrorists’ eyes, because the rest of the world will be so beaten down by the ‘one-and-a-half billion Muslims,’ the caliphate will undoubtedly succeed. This phase should be completed by 2020, although the war shouldn’t last longer than two years.”
READ IT ALL
The Time has come. No longer can we turn a blind eye to the forces of evil which seek to destroy our very existence because we are afraid of being “offensive“. The wolves aren’t simply scratching at the door, they are in our house because we invited them here, for fear of appearing intolerant. Ignoring evil isn’t “intolerance”, it is suicide.
We must be brave and trust in the power of good over evil – unwaveringly. We cannot allow fear to have any power over us or to get in the way of defending truth, goodness and freedom. Fear is the enemy’s tool, we cannot allow it to have power over us or we lose the fight before it even begins.
This is a war of information and the enemy has controlled the narrative for far too long. Arm yourselves with the truth, learn history – real history, not the sanitized revisionist fiction that issues forth from the deluded (including the current president), the wishful thinkers and the deceivers. Learn the truth, check your facts, verify your sources, and no weapon against you will prosper.
This is bigger than politics, religion and race, this is the final showdown; good versus evil and there is no middle ground. You are either with those who stand for truth, real justice, and freedom, or you are on the side of lies, oppression, horror, death and destruction. You must choose a side. Choose wisely.
Since I first began to write about the islamic persecution and genocide of Christians (and other non-muslims, and muslims deemed “not muslim enough” by their oppressors and their killers), and about the increase of destructive islamic supremacist influence in the government and culture of the United States and the rest of the West, a great many more thousands of Christians have been massacred, many more have been abducted and enslaved in the most deplorable manners of servitude imaginable, many more have been displaced from their ancestral homes, more historical treasures of antiquity have been demolished, more entire communities have been brutally eradicated by islamic savages, and under Obama, America has surrendered her role as the “leader of the free world” and beacon of hope to people who prefer liberty to totalitarianism. To conclude this post, I give the last words to Pamela Geller, from the conclusion of her excellent piece:
Al-Qaida and the Brotherhood sketched out a plan that was neither absurd nor crazy, and the jihadists have followed it precisely. They have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams, with their influence now reaching into the White House. All this vividly illustrates that those of us who have been sounding the alarm about Islamic jihad all these years have been absolutely right. Ignore us at your own peril.
