The many faces of grand Jihad
By Tabitha Korol

Fourteen centuries after Muhammad, Muslims still despise the West, and they are willing to die to kill those who think and believe differently.

  • Muslims believe that only Jihad can reestablish a true Muslim state to abolish injustice and bring people into their God's service — by eradicating other political systems by the sword — to preach, restore the Caliphate and destroy their enemies, infidels and Jews. Raised by devout, doting families, many are taught 7th century masculine virtues, trained to feel isolated from their host society, develop a group mentality, and though not predisposed to do harm individually, they can perform monstrous acts collectively.

  • Jihad's motive is establishing Allah's kingdom on earth, and expropriating booty and land. Defeat and death bring everlasting Paradise and spiritual benefit. The complete imperialism, Islam seeks to erase the past so the vanquished are culturally disemboweled, with nothing left of religion or relics of historical importance. The world is Islam's perpetual war zone.

  • Jihad is using deceptive sabotage to discredit Israel's struggle for peace and her very existence, insisting that Israel is an occupying entity on Arab territory, despite indisputable facts, through Bible and archaelogical finds, of a continuous Jewish presence for over 3,000 years, Christians, 2000; Muslims, 1400; and no history of an independent Arab state.

  • Jihad is the myth that Muhammad ascended to heaven from the Dome of the Rock. Although born in Saudi Arabia, he never set foot in Jerusalem, and died 50 years after the mosque's construction to proclaim supremacy over Christianity.

  • Jihad revisionism, states that Israel (not Iran) is the threat to peace and stability, Israel (not Hamas) causes Gaza's humanitarian problems, Israel (not Islamic countries) is apartheid; and Israel (not Palestinians) is the stumbling block to the two-state solution.

  • Spanning 14 centuries, Islamic Jihad caused the death of 270 million people (Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists); the enslavement of 28 million in Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, and Sudan and the (death) of 85 million during transport; the massacre of thousands of Christians in Syria, 634 a.d.; monasteries ransacked, villagers slain in Mesopotamia, 635-642; inhabitants of entire towns killed in Egypt and Armenia; a great massacre before establishing rule in Cyprus; Tripoli's Jewish and Christian women and children sent as slaves to the Arab army; Carthage razed; 17,899 jihad attacks — death and destruction worldwide since 9/11.

  • Jihad demands accommodation by the host country: Shariah law accepted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, England; violence evacuating the once-Jewish city of Malmo, Sweden; the murder of Theo Van Gogh in the Netherlands; physical attacks on citizens, riots, and no-go zones in France; and demanding a triumphal rabat-style mosque on Ground Zero.

  • Jihad is lawfare, an assault on freedom of speech — instructing our media on addressing Islamic issues, and vetting our school books to promote Islam.

  • Jihad is September 11; universities that permit Muslim Student Unions to rage against Israel and Jews and establish Israel apartheid week; Oklahoma's anti-Shari'ah laws challenged by CAIR; and devout Muslims in our Department of Homeland Security.

  • The asymmetrical war fought against Israel, that turns the aggressor into victim; rocket fire against Israel while claiming undue retaliatory force; deadly flotillas under the guise of humanitarian aid, using their youths as suicide bombers and inspiring martyrdom.

  • Jihad is having our own President Obama forcing Israel to comply with Mahmoud Abbas's demands and State Department's Hillary Clinton's warning against recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

I urge the media to feel some moral obligation to report honestly to their readers, or these jihad tactics will continue until Islam conquers every country on the globe.
