… sends a signal to our Political Islamist enemies that America will do anything to make “peace for our time”.
On March 8, 2010 Radio Free Europe printed a story stating, “ the American President Obama accepted and approved the path of peace and talks with those Afghan Taliban whom he called 'moderates.' This is good news," Karzai said. "This is an approval of our previous stance and we accept and praise it."
President Obama’s foreign policy shift towards the Taliban garnered short term attention from the mainstream press and high profile political commentators. President Obama’s courting of “moderate” Taliban is fraught with peril not only with ongoing counter insurgency efforts in Afghanistan but here at home as American citizens are struggling to understand who exactly our enemy is and the Islamist political ideology that has with unabashed honesty declared war on the United States of America. President Obama’s naive search for a “moderate” Taliban is a seriously flawed personal core belief and sends a signal to our Political Islamist enemies that America will do anything to make “peace for our time”. Neville Chamberlain was the last foreign leader to so publicly grasp the utopian ring of peace at any cost from Adolf Hitler, and we all know how that turned out. Understanding the ideology of the Taliban all one has to do is look at their “Constitution-in-exile for the answers.
Laura Mansfield translated the original 2007 Taliban Constitution which was reprinted in part by the Jawa Report http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/archives/189141.php To follow are highlights from the Jawa Report.
The Taliban call themselves "The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan" and their Constitution was passed by the Shura Council in 2005. The Shura Council is a 10 member group made up of tribal elders, clerics, and administration officials. The de facto leader of the Taliban, Mullah Mohammad Omar, granted the new leadership legitimacy. Mohammad Omar is on the FBI’s wanted list for sheltering Osama Bin Laden and his al-Qaeda network before and after the 9/11 attacks on American soil.
Excerpts from the Taliban Constitution:
Article 3: Islam is the religion of the Afghan nation.
Article 4: The Hanafi jurisprudence is the official set of religious guidelines of Afghanistan.
Article 9: The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan considers the call to kindness, the propagation of virtue, and the prevention of evil the responsibility of all Muslims..
Article 41: Preserving the gains of jihad, defending the borders of the Islamic Emirate, and preserving the laws of the people are the responsibility of all citizens of Afghanistan.
All citizens of Afghanistan are obliged to perform military service in accordance to the provisions of the law.
Article 39: The education of women is regulated within the limits of the Islamic Sharia by a special law.
Article 42: B. Promoting non-Islamic beliefs is prohibited and those who violate this–locals or foreigners–will be tried according to the Sharia.
9. Protecting the values and goals of jihad
“In addition to the Shura, there is an "emir" or leader who's power seems almost absolute since he appoints members of the Shura and can declare a state of emergency. He must be an Afghan and a follower of the Hanafi school of Islamic law.”
An analysis of the Taliban Constitution illustrates for us the ideology of our enemy. It is illegal within the Taliban political framework for any follower of the Taliban to be “moderate” as defined by Western values. The Taliban Constitution informs us strict Sharia Law is the all encompassing legal system of the Taliban and anything other than Sharia will not be tolerated. Islam is the State religion and non-Muslims will be deemed Dhimmis or second class citizens with no minority rights. Sharia Law defines the role of women as being inferior to men and is, for all intents and purposes, a man’s personal property. All Taliban Muslims have a responsibility to be judge, jury, and executioner when their fellow Taliban stray from strict Shariah compliance. Protecting the values and goals of Jihad is the ideology that declared war on America and is an integral part of the Taliban Constitution. The overriding theme and purpose of the Taliban Constitution and general politics is strict Shariah compliance and protecting the values and goals of Jihad. The Taliban is a Totalitarian Islamic Political ideology whose inner struggle Jihad is fueled by the dreams of a global Shariah compliant Islamic caliphate. Once this Shariah compliant Islamic Caliphate is a reality then and only then will we in the West have “peace in our time.”
For President Obama to try and find a “moderate” in the Taliban Islamist hornets nest is about as naive and dangerous as sending taxpayer money to the State Department designated terrorist group Hamas. With all this moderate Taliban talk and sending taxpayer money to Hamas is going on, President Barak Hussein Obama is working feverishly to de-link terrorism from Islam. David Copperfield would have a difficult time pulling off the illusion of de-linking terrorism from Islam but not our President Obama. President Barack Hussein Obama has ordered a revision of America’s National Security Strategy to remove terms that link Islam to terrorism, administration officials said. The officials said the change would remove terms like “Islamic radicalism” from the National Security Strategy. Other words that are out are jihadist, mujahideen, caliphate, Muslim terrorist, Islamist, and Jihadi to name a few. It is no surprise the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is giddy over this change in policy. “We welcome this change in language as another step toward respectful and effective outreach to Muslims at home and abroad,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism funding trial and supports President Obama’s Orwellian attempt to change the speech and words used to describe our Islamist, Jihadist, Mujahideen, caliphate loving, and misunderstood Muslim terrorists friends whose goal is to replace our Constitution with Shariah Law.
Stephen Schwartz in a June 24, 2010 Weekly Standard story reports, “Rashad Hussein, America’s special envoy to the Organization for the Islamic Conference (OIC),… announced a new title this week for President Barack Obama. According to Hussein, Obama is America’s “Educator-in-Chief on Islam.” “Hussein so designated Obama in a keynote speech Wednesday, June 23, at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The occasion was another “post-Cairo” conference, following on the event that welcomed Islamist ideologue Tariq Ramadan to Washington in April. Hussein also declared that Obama is “Educator-in-Chief” on the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan…” “In his remarks, Hussein also congratulated Obama for sending Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser, to last year’s annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America, a notorious front for Saudi-financed Muslim radicalism. Worse, Hussein has now divulged that the U.S. will support the OIC in the latter’s United Nations effort to criminalize “defamation of religion” – widely perceived as a measure to suppress criticism of Muslim practices that violate human rights.” “As noted by Hussein, Obama has called for references to “Islamic terrorism” and “jihadism” to be expunged from the official vocabulary employed by his administration, and has pronounced last year’s Fort Hood massacre to be unrelated to Islam. As the president has assured the world, terrorism is anti-Islamic and the term “jihad” has been misused. Thus Obama presumes not only to act as “educator” on Islam to non-Muslim Americans, but to define the religion for its own adherents.” “Hussein employed a phrase that must have been chilling to those who heard in it an echo, saying “Islam is a solution” to the current global challenges emerging from Muslim ranks.”
Rashad Hussein and our “Educator-in-Chief on Islam” fail by design to educate Americas Non-Muslim population on what we need to know about Shariah Law from the Islamic scholar’s point of view. Bill Warner of the Center For the Study of Political Islam sums up exactly what all Non-Muslims need to know about Shariah Law and Political Islam. Mr. Warner states, “Islamic scholars claim Islamic law is perfect, universal, and eternal. The laws of the United States are temporary, limited and will pass away. It is the duty of every Muslim to obey the laws of Allah, the Sharia. United States laws are man made; while Sharia Law is sacred and comes from the only legitimate God, Allah. Sharia is based on the principles found in the Koran and other Islamic religious/political texts. There are no common principles between American law and Sharia.”
The principles listed above in the Taliban Constitution are mirrored in part or full in the Constitutions of Hamas, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia to name only a few. The Constitutions of these Totalitarian Shariah compliant Islamic States are not politically or ideologically compatible with our man made Constitution and Bill of Rights. Our “Educator-in-Chief on Islam” appears to be playing a double game with our national foreign policy in regard to the threats Political Islam has thrust on our country via the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, 9/11 attacks on the same World Trade Center and Pentagon, The Soldier of Allah Nidal Hasan massacre at Ft. Hood, Jihad Jane, and the recently self described warrior of Allah Times Square bomber, to name only small few of the dedicated Political Islamists who have committed soft and hard terrorist attacks on our great country.
President Barak Hussein Obama took an oath of office which states, “in accordance with Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
I have proven beyond a shadow of doubt Political Islam’s Shariah Law is not compatible with the Constitution of the United States. Our “Educator-in-Chief on Islam” has a duty to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. I call on all Muslim Americans to stand with ACT! For America’s Muslim members Dr. Zudi Jasser and Tawfiq Hamid against the Politics of Shariah Law that do not preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Do your own research, think for yourself, and come to your own conclusions.
