United Nations Headquarter Struck and the World Yawns

 

Barcelona with thirteen murdered is a horrific event for which Daesh has taken credit. One week before, or a little more, another attack occurred striking a United Nations Peacekeeping Headquarters with fourteen casualties and thus far the silence has been deafening. Well, so it was not exactly New York City United Nations Headquarters, it was more like in Timbuktu. Really, it was the United Nations Headquarters in Timbuktu, Mali. Seven individuals were murdered and another seven injured and yet their lives did not matter, as they were not European. It was a machinegun attack by an individual or groups where Jama’a Nusrat ul-Islam wa al-Muslimin’ (JNIM), which is Al-Qaeda’s arm in Mali, has claimed responsibility. According to Reuters, the peacekeeping headquarters had been a frequent target of terrorists in the past. JNIM is one of numerous bands of Islamic radical terrorist fighters making war from Mali to Somalia all along the African Transition Zone (see below). Likely, the most covered of these groups operated largely in Nigeria and surrounding nations, including Mali, and is known as Boko Haram. They made world news with their kidnapping of two-hundred-seventy girls from a school in the town of Chibok in Borno State of the northern region of Nigeria. The entire horrific and never completely resolved terror of the situation was presumably caught and framed perfectly, at least according to the New York Times, Washington Post, numerous other mainstream media outlets in print, television, cable and Internet fascination with the Twitter post which swept the world and was the answer from the White House with Michelle Obama pouting picture holding a sing with #Bring Back Our Girls written in black marker on a standard size sheet of printer paper. This heartfelt plea somehow was ineffective on the terrorists in the Nigerian jungle but, and this is pitifully true, it was at least some effort. There were offers to send Special Forces from the United States and IDF advisors and soldiers by Israel, both politely refused by Nigeria who chooses to continue their methods against the Boko Haram terrorists.

These attacks along this region have been occurring for quite some period of time. In some areas, this war has a history reaching back as much as a thousand years if not longer. The war has been between Islamic forces and the Animists and Christians to their south. Islam spread across MENA starting in the Middle East and continuing across North Africa and on into Spain (Andalusia) finally being turned back in the Battle of Tours by Charles the Hammer Martel on October 10, 732. We could even use that date as a guide to the length of the wars in northern Central Africa. There is a message in the fact that over the past century, after a period of relative calm and only occasional bursts of violence, the war has returned and slowly gained intensity and will continue to gain in intensity until either the Animists and Christians are fleeing the Islamic purging of Africa on ships from Cape Town, South Africa or the Islamic forces have been roundly defeated forcing them to melt back into the Muslim populations to await their next test of the resolve of those who are unlike them. There is a parallel building to the north of this region where the troubles are just reaching their initial stages. The troubles are being birthed just across the Mediterranean Sea in industrialized Europe. Perhaps the people and leaders of Europe should take a long hard look across the waters and learn from the troubled times in northern Central Africa. There they might see their own future and decide not to travel down the same road. The people of Africa had no alternative as Islam burst upon them uninvited back when the world was a very different place. They saw the golden age of Islam and its fall as the Ottoman Empire collapsed ending in World War I. Europe had a different problem over which they have a modicum of control as they have invited Islam into their homes.

 

Terrorism is the initial entry into an area, the crack in the façade, the initial infiltration into which the takeover and the forces of conquest will flow. There is an entire Quranic method which Islam has used for centuries and only recently, they have dusted off the old instructions and have begun again. Their initial attempts were in the Balkans and Chechnya. The altercations and terrorism in Israel is of a different nature as that is a war where Islam must retake lands which they lost, something which is never supposed to occur and must not be permitted by Islam. The Quran tells them that Allah supports their efforts as long as they continue to follow Islam and the Five Pillars (see below) and surrender to Allah as Islam means surrender. They have faced a long period of confusion as the West gained wealth and power defeating them at every turn. This could only mean that they had failed to be sufficiently religious and fervent enough in following the laws of the Quran. Their Imams told them they must return now to the ways of Muhammad while he was in Medina as those were the times which had brought Islam its greatness. They shunned the teachings of Mecca which could have allowed cooperation and working in conjunction with others to build and not as destroyers to tear down. We described the different teachings in an introductory article titled, “Which Quran, Mecca or Medina?

 

Five Pillars of Islam

 

Their most highly revered Imams such as Yusuf al-Qaradawi are some who are making the loudest protestations that Islam is rising and about to enter their third and final stage of conquest and that at the end of this last and final stage the world will have fallen to the forces of Islam and they will rule from that point on forever. This is part of what is fueling the fires which are spreading slowly over Europe plus the United States and will continue onto the rest of the world unless prevented. Such prevention will take a will to stand and the stamina to see this war to its final end. Currently, the Western world has no stomach for this long fight and will fall rapidly as the forces of Islam gather the most modern weapons with the most lethal destructiveness and use them with no regard for the consequences for all that matters is the destruction of the other by any and all means available. As Jibril Rajoub stated in an interview by Al-Mayadeen TV in Lebanon, “There is no going back to negotiations unless the source of authority is the international resolutions, with a time frame and with the freezing of all unilateral Israeli steps: Jerusalem, the fence, settlements and prisoners.” When the Lebanese TV host responded, “You’ve heard Israel’s refusal.” Jibril Rajoub immediately retorted, “That doesn’t matter. Listen. We as yet don’t have a nuke, but I swear that if we had a nuke, we’d have used it this very morning.” We included the video below.

 

 

That is what Israel is facing and realizes this. This is also what the world will be facing once the terrorists gain access or knowledge and resources for nuclear weapons. Many in the Islamic world could not care about the other effects and ramification of the general use of nuclear weapons. They would just as joyously use enough nuclear weapons to lay waste to the entirety of the world which is not Islamic and then use the remainder to destroy those Muslims who practice the wrong kind of Islam. Imagine ISIS with nuclear weapons or Boko Haram with nuclear weapons or Bashir al-Assad with nuclear weapons or on and on through the entirety of the Islamic radical world and just imagine what would remain of the world if they possessed just the nuclear weapons sitting in France, Germany and Britain and then imagine it is fifty years hence and those three nations are now ruled by Islam.

Troubles Begin in Thinking Islam Must be Repaired by Islam

 

There is a theme that in order for Islam to find some means of coming to grips with modernity and make the changes necessary for it to coexist with the non-Islamic world instead of seeking to destroy all which is not Islam must be managed by those within Islam and not the remainder of the world. This is a great concept for those of us who are not Muslims as it frees us from any obligation to work to assist Islam in finding a new path. It allows those who are not Muslims to simply wipe their hands of the problematic situation and leave all the heavy lifting for those within the sway of Islam. Imagine if we had decided that the problem caused by the Nazis had to be solved by those who were part of the Nazi party et al. Where would such an idea, if followed by France, Britain, Canada and the United States have led? Well, it would probably not have been very pretty. There were those within the United States who thought that the entire Nazi war was a European problem and that it should be left to the Europeans to hash it out. Their logic was quite appealing as the United States just finished fighting a European War called, you will love this one, The War to End All Wars. These Americans, and many others who were on the fence or just tired of European catastrophic endeavors and waring for supremacy over one another, simply desired to be left at peace and unbothered with the world even if it was heading for Armageddon and going to Hades in a Handbasket. They were winning the popularist debate and had most Americans believing the European War was no business of the United States, as it would never come to American shores, it was not their problem. Well, the attack on Pearl Harbor blew all that thinking right out of the water and propelled America into the war. Those who claim that Franklin Delano Roosevelt and many in his Administration and the Congress and other leaders of business and society knew the attack was coming and did nothing to prevent it are missing the point. Had these leaders of the United States, both governmental and private, known about the coming attack, what were they supposed to do? Plead with Japan not to strike Pearl Harbor? The Japanese had already decided; so that was not going to work, as they would not alter their plans. Call for a draft before the attack and try to get some workable defense in place all but instantly? That would never have flown in Congress and even had they drafted the entire population, there would not have been sufficient pilots or aircraft to stop the attack. Once the Japanese decided to strike, the war was coming to America and there was nothing that could prevent that; so any venturing into excuses and what ifs is a waste.

 

There is a message in the run-up to America entering World War II, namely that some things are inescapable and the sooner this is realized, the sooner the problem can be addressed, solved, or, if necessary, eliminated and all at far less cost in treasure and manpower. Imagine if Britain had listened to Winston Churchill’s warnings when he was telling them of the coming conflagration and the inevitability of war with the Nazis. Imagine if instead of sending Neville Chamberlain to the Munich conference the British had sent Winston Churchill. The conference would not have reached any agreement, Czechoslovakia would not have been gifted to the Nazis, and just maybe Germany would have been stopped as France and Britain kept their mutual defense pact with the Czechoslovakian friends instead of simply whimpering as the Nazis were gifted half and rolled over the remaining half soon thereafter without any response from Czechoslovakia’s so-called allies. Hitler would have been stopped cold as soon as he had entered Czechoslovakia instead of months later after building his war machine using the existing arms factories he conquered as part of taking Czechoslovakia. Instead the war came after the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact in which the Nazis and Soviet Union divided up Poland between them and rolled across their respective borders crushing the Polish cavalry and military meeting in the middle and that was the end of Poland with their prisoners taken to their respective conquers’ camps and many were simply executed as the Nazis and Soviets both viewed the Polish people as inferior and unworthy of consuming oxygen. This led to the most devastating war in which an unbelievable number of the resultant casualties were civilians far exceeding the totals and percentages of previous wars (see comparison between World War I and II below). It is startling that many historians look at World War II and realize that much of the death and destruction could have been avoided and the leaders of nations who could have intervened early and, by taking the bull by the horns, have stopped Hitler cold preventing his attempt at world conquest and the eradication of the Jewish People. What if the world is approaching another of those critical points where unfolding history is about to hit a divergence and the next couple of years, maybe months or even weeks, could decide the entire future of humanity? We could not be more serious.

 

World War II Surpassed World War I Civilian Deaths Against Military Deaths

World War II Surpassed World War I
Civilian Deaths Against Military Deaths

 

Manchester, Paris, Brussels, San Bernardino, Orlando, Nice, and decades of terrorist activities in Israel plus any others anybody cares to fill in are but the latest wave of Islamist attempts to conquer the world in the name of Allah in order to fulfill the prophesy from the Quran, the part written in Medina to be exact (for more on the bifurcated Quran, please read our short article as an introduction Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? which has included numerous helpful links in the comment section added by our readers). The initial Islamic attempt in world conquest began in the year 622 under Muhammad for the first decade and then Rashidun and then the Umayyad caliphs covering the first wave of Islamic expansion (see map below). This has been followed by other waves with near continuous aggressions of varying degrees. Some of the history might be of interest to many Westerners.

 

Islamic Expansion

Islamic Expansion

 

If one were to ask most Americans when was the first terrorist attack on the United States in the modern era, meaning the past one hundred years, what would be your guess. Most people would likely claim it was the attack on the World Trade Center which then requires asking which attack. Too many would then answer the one on 9/11, of course. That is the state of history knowledge for far too many Americans. The truth is there was one before the 9/11/2001 hijacking of four American airliners crashing two, one each, into the World Trade Towers; one into the Pentagon and the last one was crashed by the passengers into a field not far outside of Pittsburgh upon learning of the intentions of the hijackers. There was a first attack on the Towers on February 26, 1993, when Ramzi Yousef and Eyad Ismoil drove a truck filled with 1,336 pounds of explosives into the parking garage under Tower One with coconspirators Mahmud Abouhalima, Mohammad Salameh, Nidal A. Ayyad, Abdul Rahman Yasin, and Ahmed Ajaj all led by the Blind Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman. But even that is not the initial attack since the start of the Twentieth Century as for that we need go back to June 5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, at 12:15 AM when Sirhan Sirhan Assassinated Democrat Party frontrunner candidate for President of the United States Robert F. Kennedy. The public was told that Sirhan was insane and simply was out of control, crazy, demented or anything other than terrorism by a Palestinian sympathizer born in Lebanon who identified with Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian cause and murdered Robert Kennedy because he supported Israel. Yes, the truth will set you free and the assassination of Robert Kennedy was an act of terrorism aimed at Israel and the United States by an Arab Palestinian supporting terrorist.

 

But when it comes to conflicts with Islam and the United States there is an even earlier precedent. The United States fought two wars with Islamic forces known as the Barbary Pirates who were stealing ships through piracy demanding tribute from the owning nations and taking the crews as slaves. The major slave trade in the Mediterranean was called white slavery to differentiate it from the rest of slavery in the African continent where the Arabs and Muslims played a critical role in acquisition of the African natives which were then transferred to the coast where they were bought by European slavers and then sold to ship captains who would transfer them for trading across the world. The Barbary pirates collected tributes from every nation and got more and more greedy and at some point, the United States came to the decision they were not going to be blackmailed any more. Under President Thomas Jefferson, probably the greatest of all isolationists of the Founding Fathers, the United States Navy and Marines fought the Pasha of Tripoli Yusuf Karamanli after refusing to pay the demanded tribute of $225,000, which led to his declaring war on the United States. You could say that President Thomas Jefferson obliged him.

 

But wait, there’s more. After the United States had somehow managed to win the war of 1812 against Britain, the Barbary Pirates thought that the United States would be vulnerable and began their piracy again, demanding ransoms. The Regency of Algiers Mohamed Kharnadji who was followed by Dey Regency of Algiers Omar Agha insisted the United States resume paying tribute this time to Algiers as their ships now ruled the seas. President James Madison showed the same resolve as had Thomas Jefferson and again the Barbary Pirates were defeated. What is of interest, the Barbary Pirates never signed an actual surrender but instead insisted that any surrender was but a Hudna. Traditionally, a Hudna lasts a decade or until the forces of Islam believe they are capable of defeating their enemies. The Barbary Hudna lasted significantly longer than a decade but it appears that it is coming to its end and they believe that the United States is primed to fall right along with Europe, Israel, India and the remainder of the world is all ready for harvest and they are out to pick it clean.

 

Why, you might inquire, are they so dependent on using terrorism as a way to defeat the world? Well, the world has only themselves to blame for making it appear that terrorism is the route they can ride to total victory. They watched how through terrorism and a campaign of lies and propaganda they believe they are on the verge of destroying Israel and how the Europeans have all but folded before them with terrorism and infiltration leading the way. It is simply appearing to be working and so they will ride it for all it is worth. As long as the world remains in a coma ready to surrender over enduring any struggle, then Islam will continue to surge. The continued reaction to every terror attack by the European elite is to blame Israel and the growing anti-Semitism spreading across Europe, even ahead of and in excess to the numbers of Muslim refugees joining the already present Muslim populations. The excuse that the anti-Semitism is driven by Muslims sounds hollow when percentages of those holding numerous anti-Semitic tropes far exceeds the percentage of Muslims residing in most European nations with amongst the most threatening being Sweden, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. What has been amongst the most disturbing trends are the numbers of people in the developed world who blame Israel and Jews for the terrorism when it strikes their country. There are many who claim if only Israel would give the Palestinians and the Arabs what they demand, then their own nation would be fine and the terrorism would stop. Making this even more distressing is that many of these people know that what the Arabs and the Palestinians demand is all of Israel and the Jews within murdered to the last man, woman and child and they have little problem with such a sacrifice if it would keep them quiet for a few decades, enough to last for their lives as they care not about the future, just about the now and their future. Beyond their lives, they could not care less. The willingness to sacrifice Israel is made all the more evident when votes are taken in various United Nations agencies and in the General Assembly where European nations consistently abstain rather than support Israel against false claims and demands to wrench lands from Israel through votes most recently in UNESCO. The developed world can decide to end this awakening of Islam now or pay a horrific price once the majority of Muslim nations have developed nuclear weapons programs with each maintaining and equipping ICBM’s with twenty, fifty, hundred, three hundred, a thousand or more warheads. At what point will Europe and the United States awaken to the reality that Islam is incapable of taming Islam. The reason why is basic, the pacifists cannot prevent those intent on war from violence through passivity. Islam does not require every Muslim to Jihad, but every Muslim is required to either pay, house or otherwise support those who do commit to Jihad, or at the very least, lie in order to facilitate and occlude any evidence of Jihad. And the bad new is that Greater Jihad is warfare and violence to expand Islam until Islam is the only religion worshiped on Earth and Lesser Jihad is self-improvement and the juxtaposition of the two is Taqiyya (see below for definition). Lastly, there are those few true lunatics who feel if they cannot rule the entire world, then there should be no world for anybody in which to rule.

Terror Strikes United States in Orlando Club

 

The least important fact about the Orlando club assault was that the club specialized in entertainment for gay men as that may have figured somewhat in the attackers motivations but his main motivation was satisfying his fanatical religious beliefs. The Tel Aviv attack proved that the aim is murdering those who are non-Muslims, the Kafirs, and if they are Gays or Jews it just makes it all the better in their minds. They even take just as much pleasure murdering Muslims who have the audacity of being the wrong kind of Muslim or even the right kind of Muslim but following a rival terror group such as the state of war between the Islamic State and the al-Nusra Front, both offshoots from al-Qaeda and both Sunni Muslims and both dead set on murdering the other simply to prove which is superior. If this reminds you of the Highlander series with the line, “in the end there can be only one,” don’t feel so bad as we have often had that feeling as well to the point that we have one of our favorite scenes as a picture for just that line (see below). There are Muslims slaughtering Muslims all over Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya and Muslims slaughtering Christians in all those places plus Nigeria, Niger, Mali, Chad, Cameroon, and the surrounding nations with the Muslims who have fled from their homelands in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) as well as Western Asia raping any of the European women who do not measure up to Islamic dress requirements which is virtually all of them and in some instances even dressing modestly is insufficient to protect the European women. Making matters even worse the police have apparently been instructed or have chosen to turn a blind eye towards such activities and simple everyone pretends it is not happening or that it is normal. I honestly believe that there exist fathers who allow such horrors to be inflicted on their daughters. One can only wonder when some place there will be those who reach their breaking point and snap and after that it is anybody’s guess what will follow. The continuing inpouring of Islamic refugees will only serve to exacerbate the problems which always arise when two different cultures come into contact and conflict becomes inevitable. The strange thing is the more violent and willing to take the war to the other does not always win though they do win almost half the time. The barbarians did defeat Rome which was well on the way to defeating itself by that time. On the other side, the Vikings did not defeat the more civilized Europeans and tribes and kingdoms of the British Isles but instead were transformed and ended up married and an integral part of much of European history. The Native Americans probably did far better on average in the actual history than they did in the Hollywood depictions and were likely less savage and had a far better command of English but in the end they pretty much lost the long war. The Incas and other Central and South American peoples did poorly against the Spanish. The Africans did poorly against the spread of Islam across northern and central Africa. As a rule the civilization with the more advanced technology usually ends up with the victory even if it takes time.

 

The Isamic Creed

 

The attack in Orlando resulted in the murder of fifty and resulted in fifty-three more injured. The murderer, the mass assassin, Omar Siddiqui Sateen claimed to have been acting for ISIS as he informed the 911 operator he phoned and of course ISIS was glad to accept the credit when they heard the news. In a statement of the over-obvious, FBI Special Agent Danny Banks informed the media that the Orlando mass murderer had “leanings toward radical Islam.” I would dare say he suffered from something a little more serious than leanings. What escapes me is if he was investigated for possible connections to radicalized Islam, as they call Medina Quran observant Muslims, back in 2013 and 2014 and was found to have an association with Moner Mohammad Abusalha, an American from Florida who became a suicide bomber for an extremist group in Syria driving sixteen tons of explosives into a restaurant used as a headquarters for al-Assad allied troops and exploding it in March of 2014 and might have warranted another check in on Omar Siddiqui Sateen periodically forever as that would seem to be an investment the public would have gladly authorized and been quite correct in doing so. There are likely those who would claim that we cannot simply profile and just because he knew somebody who ended up radicalized who lived in the same area should not allow for periodic profiling as people have rights to their privacy. One wonders if these people would have had the same difficulties if the FBI, then known as G-men, were profiling members and relatives of members of the Capone or other gangland members just as a means of gathering and information and if possible preventing criminal enterprises and shootings, especially those which might potentially kill or injure innocent bystanders. Perhaps modern liberalism is a recent mental illness with no precedent in earlier times, though I would be willing to bet there were bleeding hearts back in the late 1920s and early 1930s during prohibition. With the methods available for monitoring communications it should be far easier than during the prohibition days to keep track of people and determine if perhaps a closer look is warranted. The technology exists and there is little chance that the government is not using their ability to listen in on the entire planet to monitor those things they deem worthy, so what is preventing them from monitoring those they deem as potential threats. We understand that there are those who would claim that we need to be monitored as we are way too political and appear to be getting information which we should not be privileged to have access for receiving all we claim to know. Well, then perhaps we should be monitored as if we are getting such information, then the government should research us and if they find the leaks, plug them. On the other hand, if we end up bamboozling them and they cannot figure out our sources, or source which is a hint for them, then all the better for us and our source. For the record, any source we may have, they are not named or ever have been referred to a Deep Throat.

 

The terror murders which have taken place in the recent past from Paris to Brussels to Tel Aviv to Orlando and numerous lesser ones as well as the ongoing wars in Islamic lands and violence against non-Muslims at the edges of the Islamic world as well as within the Muslim world one would not be too suspicious to believe that there may be a problem with modern Islam and how it is being observed by far too high a percentage of Muslims for it to remain ignored if a civilized world is the aim of humankind. Yes, we understand that the majority of Muslims which most of us have ever met have been sedate people willing to live in peace with their neighbors. We understand that it may be a tiny percentage of Muslims until somewhat recently. What we do not agree with which so many are insisting on telling us are that Islam means peace and Allah and the Judeo-Christian Deity Hashem are the same entity. The first item we must clear up if we are to have an intelligent and reasoned discussion is the definition of Islam. Islam does not equal Shalom nor does it equal Aloha. Shalom and Aloha both mean peace, and can be used as greetings of hello and good-bye. Islam means surrender. Islam demands one to surrender to Allah. Now we need to address the Allah part of the definitions. Hashem, the Judeo-Christian Deity is the Deity of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Allah is the Deity of Abraham, Ishmael and Mohammad. Completely different Deities and that is as important as the definition of Islam being surrender and not peace. By demanding that all Muslims in order to follow Islam must necessarily surrender to Allah and his messenger, Muhammad, and thus need to surrender their will to the Imams who are the messengers of Muhammad and Allah here in Earth. There are the most basic lies and differences we must come to grips with if we are ever going to understand why Islam keeps producing these killers from even wealthy families and if educated usually young individuals; even physicians and engineers as those who attacked the Glasgow International Airport on Saturday, June 30, 2007. The perpetrators of this suicide attack were two men, Bilal Abdullah, a British-born, Muslim doctor of Iraqi descent working at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and Kafeel Ahmed, an engineer and the driver who was treated for fatal burns at the same hospital.

 

So, what does any of this have to do with the Orlando attack? Everyone stated that the perpetrator loved basketball, was an outgoing and funny young man, was well adjusted and everybody who knew him expressed shock and disbelief that he was the terrorist who attacked the Gay Club. His father claimed, understandably, that his attack had nothing to do with Islam and everything to do with his anger from seeing two men kiss in public months earlier. Excuse us if we are just a tad bit incredulous over this excuse. There is this one item which the presumed civilized Muslims and their neighbors need to discuss and settle on a plan of action. If your Islamic neighbors refuse to have this discourse then your neighbors just declared themselves to be ticking time bombs just waiting for their fuses to be lit. The needed discussion is what should be done if an Imam or radicalized leader, especially youth leader, joins their community. Hang with us a minute. Assume for a moment that you are one of the presumed ninety-nine percent of passive and nonviolent Muslims but also have a weakness or an embarrassing item in your past or present such as a girlfriend you rather your wife not know of. Well, a violent Islamist joins your community and initially appears to be just another fellow Muslim. Slowly you see his starting to express more and more radical ideas slowly and innocently at first and more forcefully as time passes. As soon as he finds a weakness of a member of the Mosque or somebody who he sees as persuadable to taking a more violent stance, then he starts to work on these individuals one or two at a time. He then works with this individual and others and now there is a core of Islamists. This core grows through any method required and before you realize it you are in a radicalized Mosque. At some point in time guess what you find out? First you hear that one of the former members from your Mosque who disappeared without any notice except that the core of Islamists are not surprised and did not inquire about this lost sheep. Your lost sheep then turns up in the news as having been a suicide bomber in Syria. Is it time to panic and if so what exactly do you do? Leave the Mosque and join a different Mosque? What will you tell your friends and neighbors as to why you are changing Mosques? Even if they suspect, everybody will pretend that there is nothing behind your charge, especially that their Mosque has become a breeding ground for radicalized Islamists and everyone knows their children are being propagandized and radicalized and are at a loss as to what to do. They dare not challenge the Imam who was either replaced or found to be very agreeable to the new path and even started adding far more of an edge to the sermons. Would you challenge these radicalized Muslims who have taken control of your once friendly Mosques or just keep your head down and go along praying you do not get tapped to commit an act of terror. This is how a Mosque is transformed, a single instigator and before you know it your world is upside down. You have no recourse because you must surrender to Allah and the Quran does explicitly claim that the Medina Quran replaces any weak laws and instructions from the Mecca Quran as the latest writings are considered superior. The main Surah dealing with Abrogation is the Ayah Surah 2:106 and reads:

None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things?

 

Or as writ in Arabic:
Surah 2-106 in Arabic

 

A slightly different translations we found states:

We do not abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten except that We bring forth [one] better than it or similar to it. Do you not know that Allah is over all things competent?

 

Keeping this Surah in mind and reference our article which gives a simple to understand, straight forward, basic level introduction to the Quran and the differences between the parts written in Mecca and the verses written in Medina plus the bonus of numerous links provided by many of our readers added in the comments section at our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? This Sura adds even more to the meaning of what we reveal in our article.

 

There are two items which one need take with them from this particular article. The first is how a small cadre of radicalized Muslims coming to your formerly peaceful Mosque can bring about changes beyond anything you or your friends could believe possible and then you might likely find yourself in the crosshairs and there is little one can do about being targeted. The other truth is that it takes but one instigator to empower a core of disenfranchised young adults and teens and from there you will soon find yourself in a radicalized Mosque and your children will be future targets and your attempts to shield them will initially cost bringing you to the attention of the radicalized and your good wishes may find you being volunteered for a mission or else and you will be hard pressed to take the chances with your family and take the or else. A thousand peaceable Muslims can be transformed into a core of two to three-hundred radicalized true believers who will be at the ready to begin training and radicalizing an entire Mosque because those willing to use violence will always succeed over those who profess pacifism, a truism we have seen in far too many historic examples. Unless every Mosque is steeled against Islamists, they will win and our neighbors will turn on us as the Palestinians have largely turned on the Israelis with the aid of Islamists. It is the old adage, prepare or find yourself struggling against the worst that the world has to throw at you. Falling prey to the Islamist powers from Iran who is currently ascending with the billions of dollars and businesses throwing themselves at their feet offering deals and weapon systems of formerly embargoed systems which are now being sold at cheaper by the hundreds pricing; add in the Islamic State, and you have the recipe for a disaster just waiting to happen, and happen it will.
