Humanness Must Trump Muslimness


There is no question in my mind that Islam is religious fascism.  Both the beliefs and practices of Islam amply prove my assertion.  To start with, see what their invocation of their god is: Allah-u-akbar (“Allah is the greatest,” not “God is great,” as it is marketed in English).  Then there is a whole raft of teachings and laws that clearly describe non-Muslims in all manner of derogatory terms and grant them no or few rights.

If you are not a Muslim, and you happened, by some misfortune, to be living in a place ruled by sharia, you want to be at least either a Christian or a Jew.  If you are anything else or nothing at all religious-wise, then you are just that: nothing.  Jews and Christians enjoy a measure of second-class citizenship under Islam as long as they pay heavy religious taxes (jizya), mandated in Quran 9:29, and behave themselves as docile subservient subjects.

Islam’s maltreatment of non-Muslims is legend. It goes back to the time of Muhammad himself and continues to this very day. I need not delve into that topic at any length at this point; it is very sad, inhumane and tragic.

Having said that, I readily admit that there are many Muslims who are decent people by any measure.  There are, in fact, some Muslims whose humanity transcends their Muslimness.  Not all 1.5 billion Muslims are horrible people.  We all can attest to that.  In fact, it is Islamic ideology that forces Muslims to behave barbarically.

Below is a tragic case that demonstrates my point.

A year or so ago, an elderly Bahá’í woman in the Islamic Republic of Iran remained behind when her children, in desperation, escaped from their ancestral home for other lands because of the official genocide policy of the Islamic government.

The lone old woman had a Muslim tenant living in her house.  The Muslim tenant demanded that the women give him her house.  The rent money from the house provided her with a modest income for her to survive.

The old woman refused.  The Muslim man threatened to kill her if she did not give him the house.  The woman corresponded with her children and explained her predicament.  She also tried to seek justice from the authorities.

The Muslim man made good on his threat and murdered the old lone woman and took possession of her house.  Under sharia law, only Jews and Christians (of course, in the Meccan Quran) are tolerated as members of sanctioned religions who enjoy a modicum of rights.  Members of the Bahá’í faith are declared heretics by law and are halal-ul-dam (free blood, meaning they can be murdered with no compensations or legal penalties).  Bahá’ís in the Islamic Republic are completely disenfranchised from all rights of citizenship.

A Muslim female attorney, at significant risk to her reputation and her person, consented to represent this family for redress.  This attorney is one of those numerous truly upstanding human beings who holds her own humanity above Muslimness.

Islamic societies box women into their “place” of subservience to men, obediently docile.  A woman daring to take up the cause of a dead kefir in a vicious theocracy of the Islamic Republic of Iran?  That’s true courage.  That’s the litmus test of a sterling human being.  I salute her and salute all Muslim women who are breaking out of their horribly unjust “place” in Islam.

The attorney petitioned the court on behalf of the children of the murdered old woman.  She sought redress by taking a folder of documents and correspondence to a judge.  The moment the judge learned that the documents had been touched by a Bahá’í, he took out a box of tissue papers from his desk drawer and used the tissue to handle the folder.  This man who was supposed to be an unbiased upholder of justice considered the murdered Bahá’í woman najes (unclean, untouchable, simply for being Bahá’í).  He was following his religious duty not to even touch anything handled by a Bahá’í.  Would this bigot be the kind of impartial agent of law to administer justice?

The dead woman and her children got nothing.  The murderous Muslim got the house.  It is sadly reminiscent of the time of Muhammad, when kefirs (infidels) were always treated as fair game and entitled to little or nothing.

Warning to good-hearted and fair-minded non-Muslim: It is this kind of treatment that awaits you if Muslims take over and, in obedience to their belief, institute horrific sharia.

The Myth of the Moderate Muslim


Is “Moderate Islam” an illusion? Moderate Islam is a wedge that will jam open the door to Jihad, and “evil will triumph when good Muslims do nothing.” The great majority of Muslims are not adherents of the radical line. Yet, because Islamists wage their war under the name of Islam, they receive immense direct and indirect support from rank-and-file ordinary Muslims. It is this support of moderate Muslims that keeps the Jihadists alive.

Perhaps it is wishful thinking on the part of non-Muslims to believe that one can be a moderate Muslim who does not participate in any shape or form the crimes of the jihadist. Good-hearted Americans, rightfully weary of wars, are voicing their opposition for the use of force in combating Islamic ideology.

“I am already against the next war,” read the bumper sticker on a car ahead of me. I wish I could tell the driver that the next war is already here; Islamists are waging it in every corner of the globe and “moderate Muslims” are either knowingly or not, support them. In our conflict with jihadists, moderate Muslims either fault the West, or simply look the other way. Islam strives to wipe out everything free people cherish, including the right to freedom of expression.

But Islam is a religion of peace and the great majority of Muslims are not a party to any plans or actions of radicals, so claim academic pundits, leftist journalists, and hired Islamic apologists. The incantation of these “authorities” is the lullaby that puts the people into a sleep of complacency. For an average free human being busy with all manner of demands on his time and resources, hardly wants to worry about the threat of Islam when those he believes “in the know” emphatically claim that there is nothing to see here. Some of these advocates of Islam go even further by accusing those who sound the alarm as racist, bigoted hatemongers and much more.

But where are all the peace-loving moderate Muslims that supposedly are in the great majority? Muslims who are neither jihadist themselves, nor support them? I and others, time and again, have been calling upon them to stand up and show the world they oppose fanatical Islamists. It is small comfort even if most Muslims are not fanatic radicals, when they do nothing to demonstrate their proclaimed nonviolent stance. It is instructive to recall that it is invariably a minority, and more often than not, a very small minority, that launches a campaign of death and destruction with great success.

It seems wishful thinking on the part of non-Muslims to believe that one can be a moderate Muslim, given that Islam is radical at its very core. To be a moderate Muslim demands that the person explicitly renounce much of the violent, exclusionary, and radical teachings of the Quran. By so doing, the individual issues his own death warrant in Islamic countries and is condemned as apostate. And if he lives in a non-Islamic land, he may even earn a fatwa on his head.

It is deadly, in any confrontation, to assess the adversary through one’s own mental template, because both templates can be vastly different from each other. People in the West are accustomed to relativistic rather than absolutistic thinking. To Westerners, just about all matters range from black to white with an array of gray shades in between the two poles. To Muslims, by contrast, nearly everything is in black and white and with virtually no shades of gray. The former type of thinking is typical of more mature minds, while the latter is that of young children and the less enlightened.

This absolutist thinking is enshrined in the Quran itself. When the starting point for a Muslim is the explicit fanatical words of Allah in the Quran, then the faithful are left with no choice other than to literally obey its dictates or even take it to the next level of fanaticism. Good Muslims, for instance, do not shake hands with women, even though the Quran does not explicitly forbid it. Although the Quran stipulates that men rule over women, good Muslim men take it upon themselves to rule women not much better than they treat their domesticated animals.

All extreme systems operate outside of the constraints of checks-and-balances and according to the principle of the negative feedback loop. That is, once it starts, the extreme becomes more and more extreme until it self-destructs and takes the larger system down with it. Cancer is a case in point. It begins with only a few cells. Left unchecked, the few cells continue expanding and stop only with the death of the host.

Fanatical Islam may indeed be a minority. Yet it is a deadly cancer that has metastasized throughout the body of the world. Urgent confrontation of this advancing disease is imperative to stave it off.

Dozens of Islamist bloodlettings are presently raging in the world, aided and abetted by a “moderate Muslim” majority. The so-called moderate Muslims, even if they do exist, are complicit in the crimes of the radicals either by providing them with funds, logistics, and new recruits, or by simply failing to actively confront and unequivocally renounce them.

As is the case with cancer cells, it is the malignant minority that is death-bearing.

In the Germany of the 1930s, for instance, very few people were Nazis and most Germans dismissed them as a bunch of hot-headed louts. Before long, the hot-headed few cowed the dismissive masses and as a result, millions lost their lives.

The tentacles of the Islamist hydra have deeply penetrated the world. The Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood poses a clear threat in Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood also wages its deadly campaign through its dozens of well-established and functioning branches all over the world.

The Wahhabis finance thousands of madrassahs throughout the world where young boys are brainwashed into becoming fanatical foot-soldiers for the petrodollar-flush Saudis and other emirs of the Persian Gulf.

The end-of-the-world believers of bomb-aspiring Iran’s Khomeinism are busy establishing Shi’a hegemony in an arc extending from the Gulf of Oman to the Mediterranean Sea.

Al Qaeda and dozens of its like-minded jihadists relentlessly carry their barbaric campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, the Philippines, the former Soviet republics, the Russian federation, Somalia, North Africa and parts of Europe, as well as other lands.

I keep hoping those purported peace-loving moderate Muslims are indeed the great majority who would arise and demonstrate their peacefulness and moderation in action. Thus far, only a faint murmur of equivocation is all that I hear from these people.

The only viable alternative for peaceful people of an Islamic background, therefore, is to leave the bondage of violent Islam altogether and join ranks with humanity’s free people.

I hope and pray that the force of freedom also abandons its reverse gear and stops retreating in the face of Islam’s surge. It is this hope that sustains me in my efforts to continue sounding the clarion.

Islam and the Culling Foot-Bridge


Islam operates by two powerful schemes: reward and punishment.  It mesmerizes the believer by its encyclopedic descriptions of Allah’s lush paradise that awaits the worthy faithful.  For the kefir and a not-so-true Muslim, the destination is Allah’s dreadful hell.

Muslim clergy tirelessly preach about these two locations with great success.  Fear of hell, for some, even out-muscles the attractions of paradise and works wonders in keeping the flock servile to the parasitic clergy.

A powerful, well honed scheme involves pol-e As-Sirāt (the footbridge of the path).  The kefirs, after they die, do not even get a chance to see if they can cross this footbridge; they go directly to Allah’s hell.  Yet all Muslims approach the footbridge.  The problem is in crossing it.  The preachers describe at great length how difficult it is to cross this bridge over the gorge of hell to the other side, where paradise is located.

A great majority of blindly faithful Muslims are either illiterate or semi-literate.  These people tend to take everything the charlatan preachers say as literal truth; many panic with fear and beg the preachers to tell them what they need do to cross that dreadful footbridge.  They become ripe for the picking.  The preachers, well trained con artists that they are, burden these simpletons with all kinds of well rehearsed fabricated demands to keep the flock in their pen.  The preachers say, for instance, that they must do this and they must do that to earn the good graces of Allah.  And when they die, Allah will commission two angels to hold them on both sides and safely transport them over the bridge.  Wayward Muslims, on the other hand, are all on their own and most likely will fall into the dreadful hell with their very first steps.

When asked about the mercy of Allah, since he is billed as the most merciful, can they count on his mercy to send them the helpful angel if they somehow, themselves, fail to live completely up to the standards of the faith?  The preachers have a pet response to that, too.  Allah’s mercy has limits.  You had best not to count on it too much.  He has already shown you his abundance of mercy by sending you his beloved messenger Muhammad.  Allah guides, and it is your duty to follow.  And if you are confused or in doubt about things, just go to the preachers.  They will clarify things for you and set you on the straight path.  The crafty preachers claim that they have spent their lives learning the intricacies of the faith, and it is their humble task to serve the believers.

This is one, and a rare one, claim of the Islamic clergy that has an element of truth to it.  In order to become a cleric of any rank, the aspiring candidate must commit himself, heart and soul, to the party dogma.  He should banish any and all independent thinking and pack his brain with what he is taught in the seminaries and spit it out, parrot-like.  This total blind adoption is the requisite for an aspiring preacher to make the grade.  If he is somewhat more literate and more ambitious, the individual will continue his “education” in more and more advanced seminaries via high-ranking clergy.  As he continues his training, he must prove his undying adherence and obedience to what he is taught.

At no time is the preacher-to-be, either during the course of his training or after assuming his congregation, allowed to deviate in the least in his preaching from the party line.  He is, however, given great latitude to embellish things to impress his parishioners and keep them as docile, obedient sheep.

There is no room for a maverick in the clergy system.  If a seminarian fails the rigorous test of blind obedience, he is castigated and expelled.  On occasion, some of these ambitious people strike out on their own and manage to gather small or even large numbers of followers.  It is through this process that Islam has fractioned into numberless sects, sub-sects, and schools.

The rigid indoctrination practiced in Islamic preacher factories is not too dissimilar from those prevalent in even secular learning institutions in the West.  A university’s professed aim is to educate and train – a transfer of knowledge to the young.  This transfer, however, can often take the form of indoctrination, particularly in fields such as social science and humanities.  Liberal-leaning professors dominate the staff at many universities.

These professors, knowingly and unknowingly, slant their lectures in favor of their personal preferences and influence the students along the same line and perception.  Radical departure from the professor’s line can result in serious adverse consequences for the student.  It seems that the loyal party line students are the ones who continue advancing with their education through the doctoral level, and in turn they become professors and indoctrinators of the next generation of students.

Being a good Muslim to attract the blessings of Allah and avoid his fury is a 24-7 business.  It is not good enough to simply comply with the five pillars of Islam.  Every detail of a Muslim’s life is rigidly and elaborately prescribed.  To lead life according to this complex and highly confusing prescription is beyond the capability of the lay believer.  That is why there are millions of professional clerics to walk the believer through the morass of Islam’s bewildering dos and don’ts – and across that much feared footbridge.

Defeating Iran's Mullahs


The Islamic Republic of Iran has entered its fourth decade, and the values and legacy of the revolution it was founded upon continue to have profound and contradictory consequences for Iranian life.  The mullahs have ruled over the defenseless Persian people with iron fists and absolute power.  As a result, millions of Iranians were forced to flee their home to the four corners of the globe. 

Those remaining have been targeted in waves of arrests of largely innocent people.  They have been accompanied by widespread torture, rape, and mass executions.  Tens of thousands more were torn away from their homes and moved to Islamic dungeons.  These prisoners of conscience were forced to confess to crimes they never committed and then either exterminated or sent back to medieval Islamic torture chambers, where they simply faded away.  It is difficult for many people to even talk about these horrible tragedies under the Islamic rules in Iran.  I personally spoke with a few lucky ones who managed to flee the country in the ’90s.

In 1979, upon returning from his long exile, Ayatollah Khomeini set the stage for gaining absolute power via primitive Islamic rules and by employing hundreds of thousands of zealous revolutionary guards and militia police against opposition elements within the country.  The machinery of coercion went to work against the Iranian people, who were unaware of the plot of one the greatest terrorist-minded individuals of the twentieth century, the ayatollah Khomeini.  The year 1979 was the beginning of the rejuvenation of the evil empire of Islam.

The propaganda apparatus of the newly emerged empire of evil went to work.  They began with their Cultural Revolution.  Numerous political figures, clerics, and academics were involved in the cultural revolution between 1980 and 1983.  They expelled some 700 university professors from Iran’s academic institutions in a short time.  The universities were finally closed in June 1980, and the purification process began.

The execution of thousands of prisoners of conscience in the Summer of 1988 by the direct order of the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Khomeini, reached its height.

In his speech, Khomeini said:

Those who are in prisons throughout the country and remain committed to their support for the “Monafeqin” [Mojahedin, the MEK], are waging war on God and are condemned to execution[.] … Destroy the enemies of Islam immediately.  About the cases, use whichever criterion that speeds up the implementation of the [execution] verdict.

Ayatollah Khomeini’s notable legacy will live alongside the most infamous and hated men in history, such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, and Saddam Hussein, who sent millions of their own countrymen to their deaths.  Iran’s leaders have turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos.

That is how the Iranians learned of Islamic justice.  That is how the Iranian people gained firsthand experience of the laws of Islam in their society.  And that is why, after forty years of incessant indoctrination of Islamic propaganda, Iran has the largest anti-Islam population in the entire world and a huge cohort of pro-Western youths.  The Islamic Republic brainwashing machine has simply backfired.

Ironically, the more vociferous the Iranian people became in defying the terrorist State, the more European countries engaged in appeasing the Islamic tyrants.  They looked the other way then, and they are looking the other way now.

The only way to stop Iran ‘s despotic regime from another holocaust is to help Iranians change the regime themselves.  Notably, the Islamic regime has no fear of any foreign invasion.  The mullahs’ only fear comes from within: the Iranian people.

On the 14th anniversary of the death of Ayatollah Khomeini, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei spoke:

The American threats are not new.  They have threatened us since the beginning of the Islamic revolution.  They know that militarily attacking Iran and the Iranian nation would mean suicide for the aggressor.

Millions of Iranians consider the mullahs and their lackeys and lobbyists as true enemies of Iran.  Iranians have never asked for charity from anybody, but all they are saying is that people and countries that are at clear risk from the mullahs ought to step to the plate and help the Iranians, in numerous effective ways, to get rid of these usurpers, these religious fanatics who are hell-bent on promoting their deadly agenda.  The Iranian people will most assuredly dislodge these wolves and try them for their crimes with all due process, the due process that they have completely denied the people of Iran for forty years.  But tried they will be, and we need help from our friends to destroy the common enemy before it escalates its bloodletting program, both in Iran and against Israel and eventually engulfing the entire region.

We have invaluable allies on the ground in Iran.  There are some 50 million Iranians who are the best hope.  These enlightened Iranians despise the mullahs and have no animosity toward Israel or the United States.  Most of these people are well educated and smart and have broken away from the slavery and fraud of Islamism.  They are in the best position inside to send the mullahs packing for good.  We must also support from the outside Prince Reza Pahlavi, who has the full support of Iranians inside.  Prince Pahlavi has been advocating a referendum for the people to decide for themselves what type of government they desire.  “Iranians are the ones who decide their own destiny and the future form of their government in a free and democratic referendum.”

In short, European countries must join the United States in ending the rule of these religious fanatics.  Instead of throwing a lifeline to the sinking ship of the mullahcracy, we must act resolutely in doing everything we can to help the Iranian people to defeat the mullahs.  This is our best bet to end the mullahs’ reign of terror.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has entered its fourth decade, and the values and legacy of the revolution it was founded upon continue to have profound and contradictory consequences for Iranian life.  The mullahs have ruled over the defenseless Persian people with iron fists and absolute power.  As a result, millions of Iranians were forced to flee their home to the four corners of the globe. 

Those remaining have been targeted in waves of arrests of largely innocent people.  They have been accompanied by widespread torture, rape, and mass executions.  Tens of thousands more were torn away from their homes and moved to Islamic dungeons.  These prisoners of conscience were forced to confess to crimes they never committed and then either exterminated or sent back to medieval Islamic torture chambers, where they simply faded away.  It is difficult for many people to even talk about these horrible tragedies under the Islamic rules in Iran.  I personally spoke with a few lucky ones who managed to flee the country in the ’90s.

In 1979, upon returning from his long exile, Ayatollah Khomeini set the stage for gaining absolute power via primitive Islamic rules and by employing hundreds of thousands of zealous revolutionary guards and militia police against opposition elements within the country.  The machinery of coercion went to work against the Iranian people, who were unaware of the plot of one the greatest terrorist-minded individuals of the twentieth century, the ayatollah Khomeini.  The year 1979 was the beginning of the rejuvenation of the evil empire of Islam.

The propaganda apparatus of the newly emerged empire of evil went to work.  They began with their Cultural Revolution.  Numerous political figures, clerics, and academics were involved in the cultural revolution between 1980 and 1983.  They expelled some 700 university professors from Iran’s academic institutions in a short time.  The universities were finally closed in June 1980, and the purification process began.

The execution of thousands of prisoners of conscience in the Summer of 1988 by the direct order of the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Khomeini, reached its height.

In his speech, Khomeini said:

Those who are in prisons throughout the country and remain committed to their support for the “Monafeqin” [Mojahedin, the MEK], are waging war on God and are condemned to execution[.] … Destroy the enemies of Islam immediately.  About the cases, use whichever criterion that speeds up the implementation of the [execution] verdict.

Ayatollah Khomeini’s notable legacy will live alongside the most infamous and hated men in history, such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, and Saddam Hussein, who sent millions of their own countrymen to their deaths.  Iran’s leaders have turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos.

That is how the Iranians learned of Islamic justice.  That is how the Iranian people gained firsthand experience of the laws of Islam in their society.  And that is why, after forty years of incessant indoctrination of Islamic propaganda, Iran has the largest anti-Islam population in the entire world and a huge cohort of pro-Western youths.  The Islamic Republic brainwashing machine has simply backfired.

Ironically, the more vociferous the Iranian people became in defying the terrorist State, the more European countries engaged in appeasing the Islamic tyrants.  They looked the other way then, and they are looking the other way now.

What to Do with Iran's Mullahs


Many pundits predict that it is just a matter of time before the confrontation between the world and Iran’s mullahs, with the U.S. leading the charge, after President Donald Trump threatened to pull out of the nuclear deal, setting off a conflagration.  The present stand-off is bound to change, either by the U.S. use of force to make good on its threat that a nuclear Iran is not acceptable or by the mullahs managing to make the unacceptable an accomplished fact.

Although the main adversaries are the U.S. and Iran, much of the world has a huge stake regarding this potentially catastrophic confrontation.  Israel, the Persian Gulf states, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Iraq, as well as nations farther away from the region, are willing and unwilling parties to this unfolding crisis.

There is a non-violent solution, without appeasement, that offers the best chance for resolving the impasse: change of regime in Iran.

Selected president Hassan Rouhani’s bellicosity notwithstanding, the Islamic Republic of Iran is on the verge of collapse upon the head of the despised mullahs and their emblematic Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).  A few nudges from the outside world would serve as the tipping point for the long-suffering Iranians to rise and bury the mullahs in the graveyard that they so richly deserve and have made of Iran.

Here are some indicators of how seriously the Islamic Republic is ailing:

– The $100 barrel of oil is no more.  It is down around $62.  Oil money is the mullahs’ lifeblood.  The Mullahs are strapped.  They can’t pay the salaries of teachers and other government employees, including their terrorist proxies.  Rouhani’s largess to buy and hold his constituency has exacerbated the problem.  The Islamic Republic is unable to continue financing its terrorist clients abroad.

– The great majority of Iranians are fed up with the misrule of the Islamic Republic.  Students, workers, and women’s groups have been at the forefront of fighting the Islamists.  Even among the high-ranking clergy, significant widespread dissention is surfacing.  Ayatollahs in the twin holy cities of Qom and Mashhad are in trouble.  Recent uprisings started in Mashhad and then spread across the country.

– Tehran is already quivering under the mild U.N. and U.S. sanctions and is desperately avoiding tougher Security Council resolution.  The mullahs’ smiling emissary, former president Muhammad Khatami, presented one of the mullahs’ initiatives to Americans and European personalities at the latest World Economic Forum in Davos.  Khatami’s initiative includes the willingness of the mullahs to suspend uranium enrichment under some reasonable-sounding conditions.  At the moment, the Islamic regime has restricted Khatami’s activity, and he is barred from leaving the country.

– The Islamic Republic finds itself isolated and has decided not to carry out its threat of suspending relations with countries that voted in support of the U.N. sanctions, nor have the mullahs summoned the ever ready thugs on their payroll to demonstrate and harass the embassies of those nations.

 – Iran is timidly putting up with the U.S. arrest and interrogation of its senior Revolutionary Guard commanders in Iraq.

– The very mild U.N. sanctions are already rattling the Iranian economy.  Even after the nuclear deal, the perception was that Iran’s economy will excel.  But it backfired.  The rial, Iran’s currency, is shaky; the business community is deeply worried; and thousands of contracts remain unsigned due to uncertainty of what might happen next.

– Experts predict that hundreds of thousands of Iranian workers will join the already swelled ranks of the unemployed in short order, even under the present mild sanctions.  Senior foreign diplomats report a significant “moderation” in the mullahs’ behavior and signs that they wish to get themselves out of the present predicament.

– Fear of a possible attack by the U.S. has badly shaken the morale of the ruling elite, who see their ill gotten wealth and power in serious jeopardy.  The multi-billionaire mullahs are moving their assets out of the country and transferring it to a safer place.

– The Islamic Republic is facing serious setbacks in Lebanon, in the Palestinian Territory, in Syria, and even in Iraq.  The mullahs’ attempt to seize power in Lebanon has aroused much of the Lebanese population against them, and their proxy, Lebanon’s Hezb’allah, is in disarray.  The Iraqi thug-cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and his Mahdi Army, the mullahs’ mercenary force, face serious problems due to the pressures from the U.S. and the Iraqi government.  In recent weeks, hundreds of Mahdi fighters have been killed, and many more have been arrested.

– The above is by no means an exhaustive list of troubles the mullahs face.  Yet they should make us realize that both Rouhani and the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and his gang are on shaky ground now that the Iranian people in all strata of life in Iran despise them.  A nudge here, a nudge there will likely topple the Islamofascist’s regime and save everyone a lot of trouble.

It is dangerous and unnecessary to attack Iran militarily, nor does the U.S. need to go the route of appeasement with a seriously weak adversary, as the IRI under the rule of the mullahs is now proving itself to be.  The most effective and prudent solution is to change the regime in Iran.  This idea is hardly new.  What is new: here is a list of non-violent undertakings that holds considerable promise in disposing the homicidal-suicidal Mullahs. Governments should enact the following:

– Declare unequivocally the commitment to respect the territorial integrity of Iran, as well as the rights of Iranians to decide, through a democratic process, all matters pertaining to their life and their country.

– Initiate, without delay or equivocation, a comprehensive program of assistance to all democratic Iranian opposition groups, including Mr. Reza Pahlavi, who is popular inside and outside of Iran in their struggle to accomplish the regime change themselves.

– Proclaim far and wide that the cardinal reason for taking these measures against the Mullahs’ “reign of terror” is to prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons, the threat they pose to the region as well as to the world, and the stimulus they provide for other nations to develop their own nuclear arsenal.

– Enforce the U.N. sanctions by inspecting every vessel headed for Iranian ports to make sure they are not ferrying prohibited material.  Other than vessels known to be carrying foodstuffs and medicine, each ship should be subjected to an elaborate inspection.

– We should once again Persuade Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, and other Persian Gulf Arab oil-producers to significantly increase their output and drastically cut the price.  It is the least they can do to forestall the emergence of a nuclear Shiite Iran bent on ruling the region.

– Obtain court orders to freeze the overseas assets of Iranian leaders, since they are clearly ill gotten funds that rightfully belong to the nation.

– Shut down, or severely restrict the operation of the mullahs’ businesses in Dubai and other Persian Gulf states.

– Shut down Iranian missions.  Severely restrict Iranian officials and nuclear scientists from foreign travel. Recall your ambassadors from Iran.

– Deny the Iranian Airline operation and encourage non-Iranian airlines to cease serving the country.

– File legal charges against the leaders of the Islamic Republic’s wanton violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; for its crimes against humanity and genocidal actions against religious and political groups; for support of international terrorism; for the demolition of religious sites and cemeteries; for rape, torture, and summary execution of prisoners of conscience; for forgery of documents, for acts of blackmail and fraud, and much more.

– Declare and treat the clerical regime as illegitimate.  Stop or slow down Iran’s import of refined petroleum products.

– Shut down the Islamic Republic’s websites and block their television and radio broadcasts.

– Provide Internet and Wi-Fi Access across Iran.

– Identify the agents of the Islamic Republic and prosecute them as promoters of international terrorism.  Investigate individuals and organizations that lobby or front for the Islamic Republic.

– Take all necessary steps to stop investments in Iran.  Persuade banks to refrain from dealing with Iran and the issuance of letters of credit.

– Pressure businesses to stop dealing with Iran.  Pressure governments to stop doing business with Iran.  Warn countries such as China and Russia against commercial adventurism.  

In short, the Iran problem is urgent.  It is a world problem.  A warning to the world: You need to act now.  Apathy is sleep.  If you sleep, you weep.

Islam Must Be Stopped


The internal infighting in Islam is presently playing in full color – in red – most dramatically, in the Iraq and Afghanistan and other Islamic theaters.  Shiites raid Sunni civilians, slaughter them like sheep, and toss their bodies like trash in the streets or the rivers.  The Sunnis return the favor with just as much viciousness and savagery.

Question: If this is the way these Muslims treat each other, how would they deal with the infidels if they had the chance? 

Answer: These devoted followers of Muhammad would deal with the infidels exactly the way Muhammad did: behead the non-believers, take them as slaves to hold or sell, or make them pay back-breaking jizya – poll taxes.

Some may object that writings like this are little more than hate-mongering and fanning the fire that rages between Islam and the non-Islamic world.  They may further play the Islamic apologists’ few well worn propaganda cards as evidence for their contention that Islam is not what its detractors claim.

Here are the few favorite cards: 

– “There is no compulsion in religion,” says the Quran.  (But the full context is never shown.)

– Islam means “peace,” so Islam is a religion of peace.

– “For you, your religion, and for me, my religion,” Muhammad reportedly said.

The Muslims and their apologists quickly run out of their few cards, and the rest of the Islamic deck is all about intolerance, hatred, and violence toward the infidels, toward all others who are not true Muslims, and even toward those who consider themselves Muslims.  Shiites, for instance, judge the Sunnis as traitors to Islam, and Sunnis condemn the Shiites as heretics.  Each side deems the other worthy of death and hellfire.

This internecine Islamic war of the religion of peace is not confined to the Shiite-Sunni divide.  There are so many internal divisions within each side that listing and describing them comprehensively would be an encyclopedic work.

So who is right?  What are the facts about Islam, and how does Islam impact the ever-shrinking village Earth and its inhabitants?  Admittedly, this is a huge question and cannot be answered satisfactorily in one article.  However, some facts can be presented to help the reader decide.

There is no need to belabor the point that Islam is not, and has never been, a religion of peace.  The word “Islam” is derived from taslim, which purely means “submission,” while the term for “peace” is “solh.”  Another derivation of the word taslim is “salema,” which means “good health” and so on. 

Irrespective of what the term “Islam” may mean, the facts on the ground conclusively demonstrate Islam’s violent nature from its very inception.  No need to go back to the time of Muhammad and examine the historical records.  Just a few contemporary events should make the point.

Here is a partial list: the savage Shiite-Sunni bloodletting in Iraq; the barbarism of the resurgent Taliban in Afghanistan; the genocide in Sudan’s Darfur region; the Somali killings; the Iranian mullahs’ murder of their own people and support of mischief abroad; the incessant terrorist acts of Hamas, Hezb’allah, and Islamic Jihad on Israel, and numerous fatwas on infidels and the apostates; the bombing of Shiite mosques in Pakistan and Iraq; and the Shiite retaliation against soft innocent and civilian targets.

Clearly, there is no place on the planet where Muslims reside that is in peace from the religion of peace.  America, Spain, France, the Netherlands, England, Thailand, France, India. and Indonesia have already been attacked, while others, such as Denmark, have been threatened and sanctioned.

Stretching the benefit of the doubt beyond limits, one may believe that all these acts of horror are committed by a small minority of thugs and radicals who happened to be Muslims.  Fine, let us ignore all those “fringes” for now – those who are giving Islam a bad reputation.  And never mind Saudi Arabia, the cradle of barbarism, fixed in formaldehyde since Islam’s inception.  Also, let us overlook the dastardly Shiite fanatics presently ruling (ruining) the great nation of Iran.  Iranian Shiite Hitlerists are hell-bent on wiping Israel off the face of the planet, while viciously devastating Iran’s own largest minority – the Bahá’ís, people universally recognized as law-abiding and peaceful.

Islamic rules are called sharia law or the Islamic law.  Sharia law is a misnomer, for laws must be squarely based on justice and fairness to all, while sharia law is nothing more than a primitive set of dogmata stipulated by Muslim men for the benefit of Muslim men.

Sharia law disenfranchises women from their legitimate equal rights with men and prescribes barbaric punishments such as stoning, amputation of limbs, and death.  Sharia law, contrary to what its advocates claim, does not limit application of its draconian provisions to Muslims only: it considers any and all disputes involving Muslims with non-Muslims also in its purview to adjudicate.  Sharia law is inherently arbitrary, obsolete, and discriminatory in the extreme.  Wherever Sharia law rules, injustice prevails.  Non-Muslims, women, and even children are victimized by its biased and cruel provisions.

Sharia law represents a twist to the concept of Blind Justice: it is indeed blind to justice.  Even a cursory examination of Sharia’s family law, for instance, proves unequivocally its blindness to justice: it makes the shameful past laws, such as Jim Crow laws, seem as paragons of fairness by comparison.

These are the conditions on the ground wherever sharia rules.  Violence of all forms is endemic to Islamic law and is not confined to any fringes.  Sharia law itself is the fringe – a fringe that is oppressive, hateful of others, and violent to the core.  Presently, fanatical Islam is lashing out with mad fury before its own final demise.  The “infidel” world has been complicit in the surge of Islamism through its mistakes, complacency, and greed.

Warning: Islam is not a religion, but a political ideology which incites hate, violence, intolerance, and terror.  Islamists are terminators.  You cannot bargain with them.  You cannot reason with them.  They do not feel pity or remorse or fear.  And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until all the infidels are dead or have submitted to Islam.  “The only language the Islamists understand is the language of force.”

In non-Muslim lands, Islamism, flush with petrodollars, has been accelerating in its drive for the world caliphate and is moving at the speed of light by building more mosques; printing more indoctrinating Islamic books; imposing its presence in Western culture; bullying, intimidating, and challenging more Christians and other peaceful people of faith; and using our democratic laws against us.

“Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.” –Qur’an 9:5

“Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.” –Qur’an 9:29

Truth, only naked truth, can set us free.  And freedom is our greatest gift of life.  Life without freedom is death disguised as life.  Remember Patrick Henry’s cry: give me liberty, or give me death.  Humanity cannot afford, and must not ignore, the emergence of the latest threat to its very existence on this planet.  We must fight for life, for liberty, for freedom and end the nightmare of Islamic hellfire.

Islam has spawned many sects that are master practitioners of the art of double standards.  As far as Muslims are concerned, what is good for Muslims is not good for non-Muslims, and what is bad for Muslims is good for non-Muslims.

What complicates matters is that there is no way of knowing which of the dozens of at-each-other’s-throat sects is the legitimate Islam.  As soon as Muhammad died, his religion of peace became a house of internal war: jockeying for power and leadership started, sects formed and splintered into sub-sects, and bloodletting began in earnest. 

The internal infighting in Islam is presently playing in full color – in red – most dramatically, in the Iraq and Afghanistan and other Islamic theaters.  Shiites raid Sunni civilians, slaughter them like sheep, and toss their bodies like trash in the streets or the rivers.  The Sunnis return the favor with just as much viciousness and savagery.

Irrespective of what the term “Islam” may mean, the facts on the ground conclusively demonstrate Islam’s violent nature from its very inception.  No need to go back to the time of Muhammad and examine the historical records.  Just a few contemporary events should make the point.

Here is a partial list: the savage Shiite-Sunni bloodletting in Iraq; the barbarism of the resurgent Taliban in Afghanistan; the genocide in Sudan’s Darfur region; the Somali killings; the Iranian mullahs’ murder of their own people and support of mischief abroad; the incessant terrorist acts of Hamas, Hezb’allah, and Islamic Jihad on Israel, and numerous fatwas on infidels and the apostates; the bombing of Shiite mosques in Pakistan and Iraq; and the Shiite retaliation against soft innocent and civilian targets.

Clearly, there is no place on the planet where Muslims reside that is in peace from the religion of peace.  America, Spain, France, the Netherlands, England, Thailand, France, India. and Indonesia have already been attacked, while others, such as Denmark, have been threatened and sanctioned.

Stretching the benefit of the doubt beyond limits, one may believe that all these acts of horror are committed by a small minority of thugs and radicals who happened to be Muslims.  Fine, let us ignore all those “fringes” for now – those who are giving Islam a bad reputation.  And never mind Saudi Arabia, the cradle of barbarism, fixed in formaldehyde since Islam’s inception.  Also, let us overlook the dastardly Shiite fanatics presently ruling (ruining) the great nation of Iran.  Iranian Shiite Hitlerists are hell-bent on wiping Israel off the face of the planet, while viciously devastating Iran’s own largest minority – the Bahá’ís, people universally recognized as law-abiding and peaceful.

Islamic rules are called sharia law or the Islamic law.  Sharia law is a misnomer, for laws must be squarely based on justice and fairness to all, while sharia law is nothing more than a primitive set of dogmata stipulated by Muslim men for the benefit of Muslim men.

Sharia law disenfranchises women from their legitimate equal rights with men and prescribes barbaric punishments such as stoning, amputation of limbs, and death.  Sharia law, contrary to what its advocates claim, does not limit application of its draconian provisions to Muslims only: it considers any and all disputes involving Muslims with non-Muslims also in its purview to adjudicate.  Sharia law is inherently arbitrary, obsolete, and discriminatory in the extreme.  Wherever Sharia law rules, injustice prevails.  Non-Muslims, women, and even children are victimized by its biased and cruel provisions.

Sharia law represents a twist to the concept of Blind Justice: it is indeed blind to justice.  Even a cursory examination of Sharia’s family law, for instance, proves unequivocally its blindness to justice: it makes the shameful past laws, such as Jim Crow laws, seem as paragons of fairness by comparison.

These are the conditions on the ground wherever sharia rules.  Violence of all forms is endemic to Islamic law and is not confined to any fringes.  Sharia law itself is the fringe – a fringe that is oppressive, hateful of others, and violent to the core.  Presently, fanatical Islam is lashing out with mad fury before its own final demise.  The “infidel” world has been complicit in the surge of Islamism through its mistakes, complacency, and greed.

Warning: Islam is not a religion, but a political ideology which incites hate, violence, intolerance, and terror.  Islamists are terminators.  You cannot bargain with them.  You cannot reason with them.  They do not feel pity or remorse or fear.  And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until all the infidels are dead or have submitted to Islam.  “The only language the Islamists understand is the language of force.”

In non-Muslim lands, Islamism, flush with petrodollars, has been accelerating in its drive for the world caliphate and is moving at the speed of light by building more mosques; printing more indoctrinating Islamic books; imposing its presence in Western culture; bullying, intimidating, and challenging more Christians and other peaceful people of faith; and using our democratic laws against us.

“Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.” –Qur’an 9:5

“Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.” –Qur’an 9:29

Truth, only naked truth, can set us free.  And freedom is our greatest gift of life.  Life without freedom is death disguised as life.  Remember Patrick Henry’s cry: give me liberty, or give me death.  Humanity cannot afford, and must not ignore, the emergence of the latest threat to its very existence on this planet.  We must fight for life, for liberty, for freedom and end the nightmare of Islamic hellfire.

Is Reza Pahlavi the Only Hope to Overthrow the Mullahs?


Over the past 39 years, I have witnessed various Iranian opposition groups and Iranian TV channels in Los Angeles keep popping up, one after another, but none united. Each group had its own agenda, yet the common denominator among all of them was “regime change.” Knowing the Iranian mentality and a decided lack of team work therein, I knew they could not possibly stand a chance against the powerful Islamic regime that possesses the capability of monitoring the Iranian population locally and globally in order to ensure compliance with regime mandates.

Currently, the balance of power in Iran favors the regime, mainly because the powerful Iranian mullahs have coup-proofed themselves from the military and created an equivalent paramilitary organization, referred to as the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the Basij and Al-Quds forces, and other such intelligence and security organizations. Out of paranoia, the regime has stationed revolutionary and militia troops to actively and deliberately prevent anyone from any demonstrations or objections against the totalitarian regime. They silence anyone by any means available to them.

The multifaceted and often interrelating decision-making bodies in the military, paramilitary, and intelligence community provide the regime with a mechanism of coup-proofing. These establishments counter-balance each other, compete for influence with the Supreme Leader, and at the same time monitor, infiltrate, and violently suppress opposition groups. As a result, even the most savvy and well-organized opposition, the Green Movement inside Iran, remains somewhat weak against the regime.

Meanwhile, the regime uses the nuclear pass to expand its support amongst the population by molding the quest of uranium enrichment as proof of Iran’s great power status in the region and around the globe.

United States’s Dilemma

For decades, the United States wanted to support the Iranian opposition, but faced the question: which ones? It sought to have further clarity while understanding the opposition’s ability to induce reform and, at times, outright regime change. But the US has been unable to pinpoint an organized Iranian opposition. So, it never materialized. One of the defining Iranian opposition characteristics is: too many chiefs and not enough Indians.  That has been a flaw in our culture.

Regrettably and out of desperation, a few Senators and some former US elected officials resorted to the People’s Mujahidin Organization of Iran (PMOI) or MEK: radical Marxist-Islamists. The atrocities the  MEK has done to its members are beyond the pale.

Prince Reza Pahlavi

Another trailblazer of our time is Prince Reza Pahlavi who said: “Civil Disobedience is the key to Free Iran.”

Reza Pahlavi is the son of the late Shah of Iran.  I have never had the honor of meeting or speaking with him, although, I judge any man based on what he says and what he does.

As I watched this man grow and become a seasoned politician, my admiration for him grew stronger. In my opinion, Mr. Pahlavi has become the very asset that the opposition has needed for many years.

He appears to have no ulterior motive other than doing what he can to help his countrymen in Iran, and his willingness to become the necessary catalyst to dislodge the current brutal regime. Reza Pahlavi wants the Iranian people to rise up against the regime and establish a Parliamentary democracy based on democratic values, freedom and human rights.

The Islamic Republic’s response to the legitimate, peaceful demands of the people has been to strike back with an iron fist: beating demonstrators (both men and women), arrests, torture and rape in secret compounds, and even shooting in the streets — the standard stock of dictatorships, but also the surest way of swelling and solidifying the dissenters’ ranks. All signs point to conditions being ripe for the early demise of the Islamic Republic — and the establishment of a secular Iranian democracy.

National Council of Iran

After a long and arduous 39 years of division among the opposition groups, on April 2013, with the leadership of Reza Pahlavi, the National Council of Iran declared its existence. I don’t know the exact number of opposition groups currently working with NCI, but as I was told, the number is growing.

“We realize that the current regime is not going to voluntarily leave the scene, which is why we have put together a campaign of resistance and civil disobedience,” Pahlavi told Breitbart News.

In a nutshell, if world leaders wish to have a free Iran,  they must return to a pre-Revolutionary era, based on freedom and democracy and  must stand behind Reza Pahlavi because he represents the will of majority of the Iranian people.

Iranian Americans are among the highest educated people in the United States and have excelled almost in every area of endeavor, including business, mathematics, theology, medicine, sciences, arts, and entertainment – but many have traditionally stayed away from participating in American politics.

Iranians believe there is no question that the United States will never have a better friend in the region than a peaceful Iran. In my opinion, we need to improve on our past mistakes, including condemnation of former President Jimmy Carter who assisted, supported and installed the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran leading to the near continuous political, economic, and military violence spanning and molding Arab, Israeli, and Persian states for the past forty years. The general feeling for President Carter among Iranians is pure contempt.

Realistically speaking, there is perhaps 10-15 percent of the Iranian population that still supports the clerical regime in varying degrees. Many in this group are government employees, lesser mullahs, and hired thugs such as the Basiji. Yet, the alienation from the regime spans the entire spectrum of Iranian society with the intelligentsia and university students leading the determined opposition to end Islamic rule. Rouhani and Ali Khamenei are greatly despised (despite numerous misrepresentation of the Western media) by the overwhelming majority of Iranians. These two and their functionaries are in deep trouble with the masses that are going to take them to account before very long.

Let’s be reminded that the United States has invaluable allies on the ground in Iran. There are some fifty million Iranians who are the best hope we have to fight the mullahs in that part of the world. These enlightened citizens despise the mullahs and have no animosity towards Israel or the United States.

Iranian People

Millions of Iranians consider the mullahs, their lackeys and lobbyists as Iran’s enemies. Iranians have never asked for charity from anyone, but they are asking the people and countries that are also at clear risk from the mullahs to step up to the plate and help them in numerous effective ways to rid themselves of these usurpers, these religious fanatics who are hell-bent on promoting their deadly agenda.

In my opinion, the situation is going in a positive direction for the Iranian people. The current regime has their collective back against the wall and the magnificent young people of Iran are pushing hard and with great wisdom. They are making life miserable for the regime, just as the regime has made life a true misery for the Iranian people for the past 39 years. The end is definitely in sight.

But, they need moral and logistic support to destroy the common world enemy before it solidifies gains in Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, and then moves to disrupt the entire Middle East and beyond. This domino effect will eventually engulf the entire world.

Support Reza Pahlavi

Time is of the essence; the clock is ticking and the window is closing on the Iranian people. Diplomacy cannot be open-ended.

We can avoid this unnecessary looming civil war if we only stand and support our opposition leader, Reza Pahlavi, the most rational and politically savvy to lead us. History has many faces; this time hopefully we can and will invest in the people of Iran under Prince Reza Pahlavi’s leadership.

The best strategy, the one that stands the greatest chance of success and entails the least risk of stopping a cataclysmic chain reaction, is for a “coalition of the willing,” to borrow a phrase, to rally behind the leadership of Reza Pahlavi.

It is the democracy-seeking secular Iranians who are thoroughly capable of dislodging the tyrannical mullahs. The call of the opposition should be resoundingly answered by President Trump and all other nations and leaders — not only for humanitarian reasons, but in furtherance of their own national security interests.

Islam Is a Grand Hallucination


“We are our beliefs,” it is said. Beliefs steer people in life. Some beliefs are harmless, some are the motive force for good, and yet others are delusional, misguided, and even outright dangerous. Every version of the belief called “Islam” ranges from the delusional to the dangerous.

Islam is a Grand Hallucination, birthed by Muhammad’s hallucination that he relayed to his first wife and employer, Khadija. Greatly frightened, he told Khadija that he was visited bya jinn (devil) in the Hira cave. Khadija comforted the distraught man by assuring him that the episode was Allah’s way of choosing him as his messenger. Muhammad believed his rich wife-employer who was 15 years his senior and the hallucination became a belief — Islam.

Remarkably enough, under the early tutelage of Khadija, Muhammad succeeded in attracting a number of influential followers. Before long, the movement gathered more and more power through violent campaigns and the faith was taken to new people and alien lands. This grand hallucination, Islam, presently has in its stranglehold over a billion humans, posing an existential threat to all non-Muslims.

Islam is rooted in the primitive tribal mentality of “We against Them,” “We the righteous against the heathens,” “We the servants submissive of the Great Allah against the rebellious enemies of Allah.” Islam is a polarizer. Islam is an enemy-maker. To Islam, a non-Muslim is a combatant against Allah and he is fair game to be subjugated and killed.

When some billion and a half adhere to the pathological belief of Islam and use it as their marching order of life, the rest of humanity can ignore the threat only at its own peril.

Once again, a resurgent Islam is on a campaign of conquest throughout the world. Hordes of life-in-hand foot-soldier fanatical Muslims are striving to kill and be killed. All they want is the opportunity to discharge their homicidal-suicidal impulse, on their way to Allah’s promised glorious paradise. And in the background, granting the foot soldiers’ wishes, are their handlers, the puppeteers, who pull the strings and detonate these human bombs. Those who cherish life must recognize these emissaries of death, what makes them, what motivates them, and how best to defend against them.

The campaign of death waged by the Islamist-jihadist, be he a puppet or a puppeteer, is energized by the belief of delectable rewards that await the faithful implementer of Allah’s dictates. Through a highly effective indoctrination, the jihadist has come to believe firmly in Islam’s grand hallucination. He believes that Allah is the one and only supreme creator of earth and heavens; that it is his duty and privilege to abide by Allah’s will and carry out his plans at all costs. He believes firmly in a gloriously wonderful immortal afterlife in paradise, for which a martyr’s death is the surest, quickest admission. Although the dominating theme of the delusion is quasi-spiritual, the promised rewards of the afterlife awaiting the martyr are sensual and material. All the things and activities that the jihadist desires and cannot attain or practice, and rejects in his earthly life will be purified and proffered to him in the paradise of the next life. Thus goes the hallucination.

It is important to understand that the human mind is not a perfect discerner of objective reality. In actuality, reality is in the mind of the beholder. The outside world only supplies bits and pieces of raw material that the mind puts together to form its reality. Depending on the type and number of bits and pieces that a given mind receives, its reality can be very different from that of another mind.

The more prescribed and homogeneous a group, the greater is the group’s consensual reality, since the members share much in common experiential input and reinforce each other’s’ mindset. Thus, members of a given religious order, for instance, tend to think much more similarly to one another than to members of other groups with different experiential histories.

Various approximations of objective reality, therefore, rule the mind. The degree to which these approximations deviate from the larger group’s consensual reality determines its delusional extent and severity.

A cocaine mainliner, for instance, under the influence of the drug, may become convinced that a bug is burrowing under his skin. In his absolute, although clearly false, certitude of the reality of his perception, cocaine users are known to take a knife to their own body to dig the burrowing bug out before it has penetrated too deeply.

A methamphetamine user’s reality is often distorted in a different way. Under the influence of the drug, an intense paranoia overtakes him. His reality is dominated by the belief that one or more people are lurking about to harm or kill him. He may wield a deadly weapon, going from room to room, from closet to closet, in search of the assailants.

If you believe that a bug is camping deep in your body, then you might go ahead and try to dig the nonexistent bug out. If you believe that people are lurking around the house to harm or kill you, you go after them before they get you. If you believe that all the troubles of the world are due to the evildoings of the non-Muslims who war against Allah, then you do all you can to fight and kill them, particularly since Allah tells you to do so in the Quran.

Drug-induced delusions are hallucinations. They are dramatic and usually transitory, while religiously-based implantation of ideas program the mind with lasting delusions.

Hallucinations, even when they are at great variance from objective reality, can rule the mind without the need for drugs, or as a result of neurological dysfunctions or other factors. The young and the less educated are most vulnerable to believe the claims of charlatans, con artists, and cunning clerics, as truth and reality.

A tragic example of the young’s susceptibility to induced delusion is the case of thousands of Iranian children who were used as human minesweepers in the last Iran-Iraq war. The mullahs issued made-in-China plastic keys to paradise to children as an enticement to go forward and clear the minefield with their bodies ahead of the military’s armored vehicles. The children believed the murderers and rushed to their death, thinking that they were headed for Islam’s glorious paradise.

The repeated intense indoctrination of the children even changed the perception of some of the charlatan mullahs so that they, themselves, believed their own lies, took their own keys to Allah’s paradise and rushed to their death clinging to the plastic trinkets. Hence, some of the puppeteers, in this instance, became puppets themselves. Such are the follies and fallibilities of the human mind.

It is, therefore, understandable that many of the higher-up Islamic puppeteers, who are usually brainwashed from early childhood, devote their fortunes and persons to the implementation of their deeply ingrained hallucinations.

Deluded by the threats and promises of Islam, Muslims, poor or rich, vie with one another in furthering the violent cause of Allah.

Many non-Muslims are also victims of a different, yet just as deadly, delusion. They believe that Islam is a religion of peace, that only a small minority of Muslims are jihadists, and Muslims can be reasoned with to abandon the Quran-mandated elimination of non-believers. These well-meaning simpletons are just as deluded as the fanatic jihadists by refusing to acknowledge the fact that one cannot be a Muslim and not abide by the dictates of the Quran.

“We are our beliefs,” it is said. Beliefs steer people in life. Some beliefs are harmless, some are the motive force for good, and yet others are delusional, misguided, and even outright dangerous. Every version of the belief called “Islam” ranges from the delusional to the dangerous.

These well-meaning simpletons are just as deluded as the fanatic jihadists by refusing to acknowledge the fact that one cannot be a Muslim and not abide by the dictates of the Quran.

How Muslims Take Control of America


Mosques cost money, and the money for these warehouses of hate is coming straight from Saudi Arabia.  These mosques are being infused with an activist strain of Islam, Wahhabism.  If you have to ask where the Saudis are getting their money, you are not paying attention…it’s coming from you.  According to “The Mosque in America: a National Portrait,” a survey released in April 2001, there were at least 1,209 mosques in the U.S.  Today, it’s estimated that that number has quadrupled.

Mosque Leaders Promote Sharia

Mosque elders tend to be sent to the U.S. with one clear mission: make sharia law the supreme rule within the United States, using any and all tactics necessary.  Next, from within the safety of their local mosques, they begin to use their revolting practices, riotous youth, and wild sermonizing to force genteel Americans to relocate to safer, less threatening neighborhoods and cities.  Of course, not all Americans will move or can afford to do so.  To take control of a town, Muslims will not need to evict everyone.  They probably need about 25% in order to make life very unpleasant for those who do not go along with their demands.

Political Islamist Infiltration

They will elect Muslims to all positions of local influence, who will create and enforce policy according to the Quran.  Once they have control over a town, they will begin to establish informal sharia, and there’s nothing the government can (or will want to) do about it.

Sharia is the brutal means by which Islam controls its populations by force, intimidation, and punishments for offenses to Allah.  Already, in many European countries, national governments have, out of fear, given Islamic fascists the right to establish their own shadow governments within the borders of countries like Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, and England, where they can control their own populations without accountability.  Proposals for sharia are being taken seriously by Canada.

This is an admission that Islam is not just a religion.  It is a cult.  It seeks total control over a person’s mind and body.  As such, our Constitution is totally incompatible with it.  Muslims will push politicians for local control and self-determination of their own laws.  In this way, America will become two nations: a weakened traditional one and a growing, menacing Islamized one.

Islamists Ally with Leftists

At the same time, Muslims will ally with leftist politicians, who will gladly cede some of their power to this group of enforcers, so conservative politicians and Christians who advocate self-defense and sane social policies are kept out of office.  Money that was once used to build mosques will now be used to buy politicians.  On university campuses, Islam will be portrayed as righteous and peaceful, while Christianity will be associated with evil Western and American values.  Rebellious American youths (BLM, OWS, antifa, etc.) will eat it up.

There will be increasing local and regional incidents of crimes and threats against Christians, Jews, and anybody who speaks out against the religion of hate.  Terrorism is a completely legitimate tool of Islam and was widely practiced and advocated by Muhammad.  Remember: all words in the Quran are perfect, immutable laws defining an eternal ethic:

Against them (the unbelievers) make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. (Quran 8.06)

Leftist politicians will continue to hold the Bill of Rights over anyone who dares to accuse this religion of wrongdoing.  Islamized citizens will ignore skyrocketing crime and threats.  They will look the other way for fear of retribution, honor killings, and punishments from those who uphold the Islamic requirement to seek revenge on anyone who dishonors or disagrees with Islam.

Eventually, America will become weakened, and politicians will allow the Muslims to do whatever they want, as long as the infidels are allowed to be free of terrorist threats.  As Christianity wanes, people will reject it as an anachronism irrelevant to modern trends.  Islamic ethics will prevail, and Muslim sects will gain members, money, and influence.

Islam Will Destroy Our Constitution

As government policies lean toward Islamic ideals, the Bill of Rights will be seen as archaic and out of touch with contemporary values and the new direction of the country.  It will be just a piece of parchment in a museum, lacking anyone who would be so bold and revolutionary as to fight a religion, even a religion of hate.

Regrettably, a vast ignorance prevails in this sphere.  Academic pundits, leftist journalists, and hired Islamic apologists, useful idiots, proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace and that the great majority of Muslims are not a party to any plans and actions of radicals.

Islam Is Irreconcilable with Our Culture

So how do we stop this sequence of events?  How can our government, which has so effectively protected the rights of peaceful religions, protect us from an aggressive one?  How should we put Islam out of business?

By massive allocation of an educational campaign while simultaneously declaring Islam for what it is: an ideology irreconcilable with our core beliefs enshrined in the universal declaration of human rights and the United States Declaration of Independence and Constitution.  By treating Islam the way we treated Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and Maoists.  By preventing Islamization of our country by all legal measures and staunchly resisting the creeping sharia in our society.

Perhaps it is time to realize that not all religions are the same.  If a religion does not recognize the constitutional rights of others, it must lose its rights under First Amendment protections.  If it seeks to control all aspects of our life by force and fraud, if it seeks exemption from national laws protecting constitutional rights, then it must not be considered a religion.

It must be called something else, and it cannot be recognized as a protected ideology under the First Amendment.

O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guides not a people unjust. (Quran 5:51)

Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. (Matthew 5:44)

Any religion or dogma that seeks to create its own government and its own legal system and seeks to mobilize its own militia is itself not interested in separation of church and state and has no right to use that separation to create hegemony.  In fact, such a doctrine is not even a religion at all.  It is a totalitarian regime and must be considered the enemy of everything Americans believe in.

I’d welcome an inspection of other religions to determine if they are truly peaceful, and I am confident that all other faiths will remain protected and unaffected because religions tend to be peaceful.  There is only one faith that seeks global hegemony for a seamless church-state government and imposition of its law everywhere, and that’s Islam.

American Mosques: Warehouses of Jihad

They do it first by establishing mosques in every town and city.  These meeting places are perfect warehouses of not only indoctrination, but future terrorists, who are made to read and understand the principles of jihad, martyrdom, and Dar-al-Harb (“land of war” – any place not Islamized).

Mosques cost money, and the money for these warehouses of hate is coming straight from Saudi Arabia.  These mosques are being infused with an activist strain of Islam, Wahhabism.  If you have to ask where the Saudis are getting their money, you are not paying attention…it’s coming from you.  According to “The Mosque in America: a National Portrait,” a survey released in April 2001, there were at least 1,209 mosques in the U.S.  Today, it’s estimated that that number has quadrupled.
