It’s Nice to be Appreciated

For the past couple of weeks, ever since the congressional elections reduced Emperor Palpatine President Obama to a vestigial appendage on the body politic, it seems that everyone in the country has been preoccupied with the details of what the Pardoner-in-Chief was going to do in the way of “Executive Amnesty”. No time left over to worry about the Great Jihad!

Whether you love him or hate him, Obama-obsession seems to be the order of the day. But Diana West has been an exception. As we have seen many times in the past, the author of American Betrayal is quite capable of keeping track of more than one topic at a time, unlike the majority of American journalists.

Ms. West’s column today at Townhall summarizes the work of ritamalik, Vlad Tepes, and Andy Bostom in exposing what was really going on at the November 14 Muslim prayer service at the National Cathedral (now the National Masjid) in Washington D.C.

Below are some excerpts from the column. For those who may have missed it, I’ve embedded the video she refers to in the body of her text:

Giving Thanks For The Counter-Jihad Network

I am giving special thanks this year for the hard work of patriots who toil without recompense to expose the many vectors of Islamic subversion currently eroding the already hollowed-out institutions of Western society.

To this end, I will tell a story about a story. It concerns the first Muslim prayer service ever held at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. As I wrote last week, this weirdly “invitation-only” service, which took place on Friday, Nov. 14, gathered representatives of Muslim groups with proven links to Hamas and to Hamas’ parent group, the Muslim Brotherhood. This means that, however briefly, jihad-linked groups took over the National Cathedral, where presidents and other great Americans have lain in state. These terror links led some media to label the event overall a “Muslim Brotherhood event,” or an “Islamist” or “extremist” event. As the service itself demonstrated, however, it was all strictly Islamic.

How do I know that? Not from 24/7 media, national or local. Not from the armies of think tanks that occupy Washington and its environs. Not from religious or political leaders, either. No professional organization with experts or a newsroom that I am aware of bothered to analyze the Muslim service at the National Cathedral, even though it was live-streamed on the Internet and available to all.

I am able to tell you about the contents of the service only thanks to the incredible international counter-jihad movement. This movement lives and breathes in the ether of the Internet, on an array of blogs, on YouTube. This case of Islam at the cathedral shows how the network works.

First, the blog Vlad Tepes captured the streaming footage of the 80-minute Muslim service. Next, Arabic translator Rita Malik assessed the English and Arabic service for Gates of Vienna and provided a summary that was posted there. Enter Islamic expert Andrew Bostom, author of several indispensable books on Islamic jihad, anti-Semitism and Islamic totalitarianism, who analyzed several of the Koranic verses used in the service by consulting some of the essential Koranic commentaries that Muslims use to understand their religious book. Bostom posted his findings at his blog,

Finally, Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes compressed everything to create a watchable, educational YouTube video of four and a half minutes. (As a bonus, Gates of Vienna also posted the short video’s transcript.) Soon, the video was mirrored at other counter-jihad sites, such as the Scandinavian blog Tundra Tabloids and Denmark’s

Swift and seamless volunteer operations like this keep anyone informed who wants to be informed. For their extremely hard work, I am truly thankful.

What exactly did the Muslims preach from their mock-up mosque inside the cathedral far from Christian symbols and imagery save one cross that Muslim worshippers literally turned their back upon? Last week, I mentioned some Koranic verses denigrating Jews and Christians that are typically part of Islamic prayer sessions. One of these, Koran 1:7, was indeed in the main sermon by South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool.

More shocking, however, was the inclusion of Koran 3:26-27…


Enemies of Islam have been warned? Episcopalians can call this “ecumenism,” but it sure sounds like jihad to me. Now, at least, we all know it.

Read the rest at Townhall.

  1. Why is the West doing this? Is it that the establishment sees Islam as its saviour?

    The state floats above us on an ether of its own making – it can no longer rely on the support of those it purports to serve. And where can it turn but to Islam when that ether begins to evaporate?

    • I think you’ve got the right idea. Terrorize the subjects into submission via a “religion” and the ease of statist control is greatly improved. A bargain between devils.

    • Why is the West doing this is the Six Million Dollar Question. If one functions with an Explanatory Vacuum, one will reach for the Conspiracy Theory. One should, however, make sure that vacuum is not overlooking crucial data and reasonable axioms and inferences.

  2. Washington D.C. the District of Crinimal’s and the United Nations a Wretched hive of scum and villiany

  3. Why is the West allowing itself to be swallowed whole by Islamists? That question has as many answers as there are strains of people who are assisting the process. Each strain will give you a different reason. Let us review a very few of these explanations:

    1) With 1.5 billion potentially angry Muslims in the world, it is better to reach out in brotherhood and friendship to avert a total world war. Our mutual humanity will outweigh our ideological differences as long as we continue to apply the principles of conflict resolution.

    2) The idea of a Caliphate is sufficiently similar to world government to bring us closer to a One-World Government, which we fully support.

    3) Angry Muslims who support “resistance” against their oppressors, whether Jews, fellow Muslims, or Western cultural elitists seem to be expressing authentic Revolutionary zeal and thus require our support.

    4) Business is business and we will sell our arms, commercial goods, and services to anyone who can pay for them. Anyone who suggests we restrict our business practices to conform to political goals is a fascist. Weapons do not kill people; people kill people.

    5) Anyone who is an enemy of the Jews is a friend of mine.

    6) The values of Islam will save the world from chaos and moral decline. God expects us to conform to his values and Islam is the fullest expression of God’s wishes.

    7) If you pay me, I will think of reasons to justify Islam’s ideas and activities no matter how gruesome.

    8) So far life sucks, so I will give Islam a whirl to see whether it will relieve my underlying melancholy or existential ennui.

    9) Males have been bashed about to the point of emasculation in modern society. Islam reasserts male social-sexual dominance. Perhaps, if Allah wills it, I will be able to find a woman or two with whom I can settle down to fulfill my sexual fantasies.

    10) A good fight to the death no matter who I kill is better than my current entropic state of affairs. The camaraderie of brothers-in-arms is exhilarating.

    11) The chaos that Islamists are producing may spread so that it will end centralized government and that is a state to be desired and actively sought after.

    12) My parents did not supply me with a firm basis to run my life. Islam will give me an opportunity try again to do what my parents could not.

    13) Islam will die on the vine in culturally rich Europe and meanwhile all my Muslim neighbors will perform the jobs that would otherwise be left undone or underdone. Yes, importing poor Muslims will give us one more generation of easy living.

    14) If we provide a fertile, comfortable setting for Muslims, they will not forget us when they go to vote. In this way we can build an unassailable constituency.

    Would anyone care to extend the list?

    • How’s about what wobbly religion of peace George’s inadvertent admonishment to the financials: 15) “We got drunk.” There is still hope though because I don’t see the general population or the politicians for that matter actually mainlining like the ravaging Islamic losers.

  4. In its seeming original form in the Hebrew, this is part of the daily praise of Nature’s order by God’s hand: are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who by His word brings on evenings [ha-ma’ariv aravim], by His wisdom opens the gates of heaven, with understanding makes time change and the season rotate, and by His will orders the stars in their constellations in the sky. He creates day and night, rolling away the light before the darkness and darkness before the light. He makes the day pass and brings the night, distinguishing day from night: The Lord of hosts is His name. May the living and forever enduring God rule over us for all time. Blessed are You, Lord, who brings on evenings [ha-ma’ariv aravim].

    • The Muslims didn’t get their thieves reputation like everything else. They earned it.
