Deception by Muslims: Learning Curve Needed

In his latest essay Michael Copeland discusses what has been pointed out here repeatedly in the past: Islamic scriptures and teaching require believers to engage in sacred lying whenever it serves the cause of Islam.

Deception by Muslims: Learning Curve Needed

by Michael Copeland

“Act like you are his friend. Then kill him.”

So urged Sheikh Mubarak Gilani to his Muslim listeners concerning non-Muslims, kafirs. He was advocating two of Islam’s teachings: deception of kafirs and killing of kafirs.

Islamic deception

Islamic deception has an Arabic name — taqiyya. It is a well-developed doctrine. In short it authorises Muslims to deceive the kafir in the cause of Islam. One of Islam’s most important theologians, Al Ghazali (1059-1111), set out the position a long time ago:

“Understand that lying is not wrong in itself. If a lie is the only way to achieve a good result [for Islam], it is permitted.”

“Permissible Lying” is how taqiyya is featured in the Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller (r4). In the Muslim Brotherhood’s secret “Strategic Plan”, the “Explanatory Memorandum”, it is included as “Using deception to mask intended goals”. It is part of their strategy for “destroying the Western civilisation from within”. This explosively important document was captured through alert police work.

An observant traffic officer in Maryland in 2004 saw a car being driven across the Chesapeake Bridge with a woman in a hijab taking a video of its structural members. He pulled it over. The driver was a Hamas activist. The driver and the passenger were arrested and their Virginia home searched. In a secret sub-basement was a stash of Arabic documents, including the Explanatory Memorandum. Subsequently this became critical evidence in the largest terrorist-funding case in American history, the Holy Land Foundation trial.

Islam’s doctrine of killing non-Muslims has been its blood-soaked track record for the last nearly 1,400 years. It cannot be missed. Islam’s history is one of repeated attack, killing, slave-taking, piracy, extortion, subjugation, humiliation and forced conversion of non-Muslim peoples, and the annihilation of their cultures. Churches, temples, and synagogues have been destroyed and triumphal mosques built in their stead. Great swathes of the Near East and North Africa that were previously Christian, even Spain and part of France, have been forced to be Islamic, with great cruelty and barbarism. Formerly Buddhist Afghanistan, Zoroastrian Persia, and Hindu India have all experienced the same. The process is in full swing in Nigeria, Myanmar, East Timor, the Philippines, Sudan, and elsewhere. The tainted BBC euphemise these conflicts as “separatist insurgencies”, but they are all instances of Islamic jihad.

Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones were deceived by Muslim jihadi Usman Khan. Khan had been imprisoned for planning terrorist mass murders. In prison he had claimed that that he wanted be rehabilitated. It was taqiyya. He joined a “Learning Together” programme in which the two were involved.

Killing kafirs

Unfortunately the “Learning Together” programme had not started on its own Learning Curve about Islam. The management had not informed either themselves or their personnel of basic Islamic doctrines. Had they done so, they would have been alerted not only to Islam’s Permissible Lying, but also, critically, to Islam’s standing instruction to kill kafirs.

“We Are At War”

Michael Copeland’s latest essay reminds me of two lines in “There is a War”, a song by Leonard Cohen: “There is a war between the ones who say there is a war / and the ones who say there isn’t.”

“We Are At War”

by Michael Copeland

“We are at war and I am a soldier,” said Mohammed Sidique Khan, one of the London 7/7 murderers. Lee Rigby’s killer told the court, “I am a soldier… This is a war… I’m a Soldier of Allah”.

Observers who are alert to Islam’s objectives have little difficulty in accepting this. Public broadcasters and politicians, by and large, though, do not accept it. They are uninformed: as a result they are incredulous. Stephen Sackur of BBC Newsnight scowled with disbelief when Anjem Choudary informed him that kafirs are not innocent — basic Islamic doctrine — and that Britain has always been the Realm of War. The BBC knows better, apparently. Recently in France the very well-informed Eric Zemmour insisted to his interviewer:

“Civil war! —Yes. We are in a civil war. — We are… excuse me!”

His interviewer did not appear to be convinced: perhaps he thinks he knows better. The media, and, more seriously, Western governments, have yet to receive the memo.

The blogger ECAW writes, “In 2005 four British born Muslims blew themselves up on the London transport system, killing 52 people, citing religious and political motivations. I was angry about it but was elsewhere, and otherwise engaged, and I went back to sleep.”

Sleep

ECAW probably speaks for many, many more. Why did we go back to sleep? Was it anything to do with repeated assurances from our leaders that these four had misunderstood their Peaceful Religion, that they had warped, twisted, perverted it and so on — you know the rest? ECAW is no longer asleep. His acronym explains: “Everything Changed After Woolwich”.

But… but… but we cannot be at war. War means Arnold Schwarzenegger… and helicopters… and commandos… and tanks. Let’s face it: most of our mental images are owed to Hollywood, and we hardly even realise it. No. War is not all heroic and exciting. It does not need to be continuous: it can be gradual. Wars in the past dragged on for decades — the Thirty Years’ War, the Hundred Years’ War, the Napoleonic Wars. Islam itself is, by its own doctrines, in “a permanent war institution” against the West, which is “Dar al Harb”, the Realm of War. “Britain has always been Dar al Harb”, Anjem Choudary assured BBC Newsnight.

The US has suffered many jihad attacks: 9/11, Fort Hood, Little Rock, Chattanooga, San Bernardino, Boston Marathon, Orlando night club, van ramming in New York, subway bomber, and so on. Britain has undergone a large number of attacks: Lockerbie, London 7/7, London 21/7, the foiled airline liquid bomb attack, the fertilizer bomb plot, Glasgow airport, the London night club failed car bomb, the beheading of Lee Rigby, the beheading of Palmira Silva, the murders of young Kriss Donald, Charlene Downes and others, the anti-EDL bomb plot, the Manchester concert bomb. Add the ongoing taking of thousands of vulnerable underage girls as sex-slaves, including one murdered at home with her family at night by arson. Add all the assaults on young men, and the carving out of Muslim-only ghettoes by the aggressive thuggery of White Drive-Out. The picture emerges of widespread and sustained hostile actions, complete with multiple victims. How many attacks are needed to qualify as a war? Certainly a state of hostility exists, with casualties.

Bolsonaro Backs President Trump on Iran

You’ve probably noticed that only “deplorable” foreign leaders (such as Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán) have expressed public support for Donald Trump’s lethal action against Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil is one of those Deplorables.

The following video shows Mr. Bolsonaro’s remarks on the issue of Iran. José Atento of Lei Islâmica em Ação, who translated the video for subtitles, sends these contextual notes:

Two interesting reactions coming from Brazil regarding the “events in Iraq.”

First, the official communiqué from Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo with Brazil’s official stance on the “events in Iraq and the fight against terrorism.” The first paragraph of the note already sets the tone:

“Upon learning of the actions taken by the United States in recent days in Iraq, the Brazilian Government expresses its support for the fight against the scourge of terrorism and reiterates that this fight requires the cooperation of the entire international community without seeking any justification for or relativization of terrorism.”

Today [January 8] Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro made a short statement after watching the TV statement by President Trump. In it, Bolsonaro criticizes former (Socialist) President Lula, who advocated for Iran’s enrichment of uranium, stressing that Brazil’s constitution establishes a principle that Brazil must follow in international relations: “the defense of peace and repudiation of terrorism.”

The Iranian Heydrich

Ehud Yahari is an Israeli journalist and political commentator. In the following video from Israeli TV Mr. Yahari asserts that the killing of Qasem Soleimani — the Iranian general who was killed in a targeted attack in Iraq a few days ago — is the most significant political assassination, from a Jewish perspective, since the killing of Reinhard Heydrich during the Second World War.

World War 3 Started in 2001 With the Attack on the Twin Towers

Bishop Guy Leven-Torres has commented here frequently in the past, but this is his first guest-essay for Gates of Vienna.

World War 3 started in 2001 with the attack on the Twin Towers

by Guy Leven-Torres

I left this comment on YouTube on 2nd January:

The New Ottoman Imperium is trying to form. We live in a truly multipolar world. Then there is the Beltway involving Russia and China but also Iran. The Iranian regime is actually quite weak and it would not take much to push it over. They will make a limited strike against the USA to save face in the eyes of Hezbollah. My question is: Where is the EU in all this? Europe looks weak and fit for client status (dhimmi) of this possible new power, now in process of forming. Russia will not risk a war at present with USA. The EU is a wet soggy paper tiger with huge a Moslem population. Iran will conduct a campaign of asymmetric warfare using its jihadi colonists in Germany, France, Holland and possibly the UK.

There will be a huge increase in illegal migration from Islam, a surge already threatened by Erdogan. Our “Useful Idiot” multiculturalists have become trapped by their own fixations and goals. If they had any sense they would cease Moslem migration forthwith. The EU has made the same mistake as Stalin did with the wooing of Hitler and the 1938 Molotov-Ribbentrop pact…

I will use this comment now to expand my paradigm of what I think is underway. Nobody can be 100% correct, but the method of modelling I have used in past theories and analysis has worked well.

The Romans were past masters of the strategy of Divide and Rule. They controlled an Empire from Southern Scotland to the Persian Gulf. They were above all else pragmatists and saw no shame or contradiction in bribing aggressive German tribes, to assuage their invasive ambitions to enter the Imperium. Often this was done to buy time before sending in the Legions to finish the job. Edward Luttwak described the Roman system as an “Economy of Force” that utilised the seeming invincibility of the Roman legions to come back from the brink and strike at the heart of the enemy with terror of gladius and scutum. In these affairs reputation is all.

It is truly amazing how the Romans controlled such a large part of the known world with but 28 legions and an almost equal number of lightly armed auxiliary troops. Tiberius was one particular master of the Great Game, as was his predecessor Augustus. Both realised that Roman arms could not take or control the known globe, despite having immense reserves, as seen in its seeming ability to create and rearm its forces after disasters such as Cannae in 216BC, and even the destruction of three crack legions under Varus in the year 12AD on the Rhine. Each time Rome rallied and re-established its hegemony.

Rome suffered when hotheads and over-ambition took hold of less experienced minds. What we see today is the result of over-ambition and ridiculous ideas of exceptionalism spouted by the likes of Globalist Neocons like former President Obama and his predecessors.

Donald Trump is very different from any of these earlier leaders, and this is why they seek to depose him by all and every means. It is Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama’s exceptionalism that has led directly to the current impasse and situation. The void they created by weakening the US military, combined with foolish military cuts across the West and the wholesale dilution of the West’s culture and morality by cultural Marxist ideology, has led to the emergence of a new “Wannabe” Caliph in the form of the Islamist Erdogan, now seeking to extend his sway across the Inner Sea or Mediterranean into Libya. I feel he has over-extended himself, and in a while he will find it difficult to maintain power in Turkey, let alone Libya.

The Slave Owner’s Book Store

This week’s selection of Dymphna’s Greatest Hits is from June of 2005. I remember the case well — Homaidan Al-Turki was convicted, but I don’t know if he’s still in prison.

Note: Most of the original links are now bad, and have been removed.

The Slave Owner’s Book Store

By Dymphna
Originally published June 13, 2005

Everyone must know by now about the Saudi couple in Colorado facing state and federal charges on various counts:

A Saudi Arabian couple was in custody Friday, accused of turning a young Indonesian woman into a virtual slave, forcing her to clean, cook and care for their children while she was threatened and sexually assaulted.

A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted Homaidan Al-Turki, 36, and his wife, Sarah Khonaizan, 35, on charges of forced labor, document servitude and harboring an illegal immigrant.

Al-Turki also faces state charges including kidnapping, false imprisonment and extortion, as well as 12 charges of sexual assault. His wife faces some of the same charges. The two could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted.

U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Jeff Dorschner said the Indonesian woman, who is in her 20s, came to the United States with the couple legally to perform domestic chores. But her U.S. visa was hidden from her by Al-Turki and Khonaizan, according to Thursday’s indictment.

The woman was controlled by “a climate of fear and intimidation” that included sexual abuse and the belief that she would “suffer serious harm” if she did not perform her tasks, the indictment said.

The woman is believed to have lived with the couple from 2000 until November 2004, according to authorities.

Mr. Homaidan Al-Turki, the alleged perpetrator of these crimes, is the owner of a book store called Al-Basheer Publications and Translations. Here is his “About” page:

What the U.S. House Impeachment Inquiry Wouldn’t Ask Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch

The issue of the Armenian Genocide has intersected with impeachment politics, due to the involvement of Marie Yovanovitch, who in addition to being the former ambassador to Ukraine is also the former ambassador to Armenia. David Boyajian has the report.

What the U.S. House Impeachment Inquiry Wouldn’t Ask Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch

by David Boyajian

Turkey, the increasingly wayward NATO member, has been making more national and international headlines than usual.

On Oct. 29, for instance, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed (405-11) Resolution 296. It recognized the Armenian, Assyrian, Greek, and other Christian genocides committed by Turkey.

A contentious, widely criticized White House meeting involving President Trump, Turkey’s autocratic President Erdogan, and Republican senators then took place on Nov. 13.

Two days later, Marie L. Yovanovitch, dismissed by President Trump in May of 2019 as U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, testified on national TV before the House Select Committee on Intelligence’s impeachment inquiry. Her dismissal, she alleged, occurred because Trump attorney and confidant Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump Jr., Fox News hosts, and others had been slandering her as disloyal to the president.

There are intriguing links among the House’s Genocide resolution, the Trump-Erdogan-Senators meeting, and Yovanovitch who was Pres. George W. Bush’s (“Bush II”) Ambassador to the Republic of Armenia.

What no Democratic or Republican committee member dared ask Yovanovitch — and what she didn’t wish to discuss — was her apparent 13-year-long failure to criticize the scandalous dismissal and forced early retirement of a fine American diplomat, John Marshall Evans.

Evans was Bush II’s ambassador to Armenia (June 2004 to Sept. 2006). Yovanovitch followed him in that post (Sept. 2008 to June 2011).

Due to senators’ revulsion at Evans’ dismissal, the ambassadorship stood empty for two years.

Armenian-American communities always host U.S. ambassadors to Armenia. In February of 2005, Ambassador Evans told them, “I will today call it the Armenian Genocide” because “it is unbecoming of us as Americans to play word games.”

It was an honest admission of America’s 90-year-long recognition of Turkey’s extermination (1915-23) of 1.5 million Armenian Christians. But the State Department disliked Evans’ use of the word “genocide.” Turkey cried foul too.

At Turkey’s insistence, the State Department tells American diplomats and presidents to avoid the G word (genocide) regarding the Armenian extermination. Such spinelessness, while typical of the State Department’s traditional obsequiousness towards Turkey, is a disgrace.

Yet Ambassador Evans was simply echoing, as but one example, President Reagan’s Proclamation 4838 in 1981 which cited “the genocide of Armenians.”

Regrettably, post-Reagan presidential statements commemorating the Genocide have avoided the G word. They employ euphemisms such as “annihilation,” “forced exile and murder,” “infamous killings,” “terrible massacres,” and “marched to their death.”

Rendezvous in Dubai

A culture-enriching “Dutch” criminal mastermind has been arrested in Dubai. Many thanks to FouseSquawk for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is an article from De Dagelijkse Standaard (also translated by FouseSquawk) about the arrest of Ridouan Taghi:

Hurray! Dangerous Ridouan Taghi is arrested in Dubai

The Netherlands — and the entire world — is a little bit safer. The Dutch-Moroccan super villain Ridouan Taghi, the brains behind many murders in recent years, has been arrested by the police in Dubai and locked up. A magnificent report on this grey December day.

Hip, hip, Hooray! In recent years the Moroccan-born (but Netherlands-raised) super-villain Ridouan Taghi has sown a trail of death and violence in our country, with the low point being the murder of a lawyer for a so-called crown witness. The unscrupulous lowlife thought he could escape by bathing in luxury in Dubai, but luckily for us and unfortunately for this Moroccan bad guy, the Netherlands has international connections. Therefore, the police can report this afternoon:

“The Dubai police on Monday, 16 December, have arrested the fugitive, Ridouan T. in an apartment in Dubai. This occurred in close cooperation with the Dutch police and the Public Prosecutor. Among other things, he is suspected of involvement (as the one who gave the order) in several murders.”

The arrest of Ridouan T. is thanks to the relentless efforts of the Dutch police and intensive international cooperation with the Dubai police. Their help was essential. “I express great credit for the professional methods of our colleagues and those in Dubai,” says police chief Erik Akerboom, who expressed his thanks to his counterpart in Dubai. “The arrest of T. is of great importance to the Netherlands. With his criminal activities, T. and his henchmen were a threat to the rule of law. It is the job of the police to do everything to protect the rule of law and remove the threats.” The capture was made possible by, among other things, the exchange of information by the Dutch police and intense international cooperation. A team of 100 investigators and specialists from the national police worked day and night on the trail of the fugitive suspect. “In today’s world, the building of a strategic cooperation is more important than ever, and by working closely with each other, it is possible to act effectively and decisively. The arrest of Ridouan T. is a good example of that here,” says Jannine van den Berg, chief of the national police unit.

This murder- and travel-loving drug criminal will probably now be extradited to the Netherlands. And then it is hoped that a judge will give this freak life in prison, and he will never have the chance to continue his criminal empire, here or in Dubai

The Christmas-Haters of Ditib

The German Islamic advocacy group Ditib (Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs [Turkish: Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı; German: Türkisch-Islamische Union der Anstalt für Religion]) is actually a department or bureau of the Turkish government. It likes to throw its weight around in internal German affairs, and is able mobilize many thousands of Turkish citizens to vote or demonstrate in accordance with its wishes.

The following article concerns the anti-Christmas activism of Ditib-related groups. Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating this article from The Berliner Morgenpost, which was published in January of 2017:

Islam Association Ditib members campaigning against Christmas

The Ditib Association, which oversees numerous Islamic preachers in Germany. Some of its members have been ranting against Christmas.

January 6, 2017
by Jens Meyer-Wellmann

Hamburg. The upheavals in Turkey have now reached Germany. Groups similarly close to the Erdogan government, members of the Turkish-Islamic Union of the Institution for Religion (Ditib) in Germany have recently created a massive campaign against Christian Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations. The association distanced itself from the action.

Ditib financially supports mosques and in Hamburg, for example, partners with the city in a contract with the Muslim federations, which mean it also has influence on the instruction regime at the schools. On social media images were also spread by Ditib organisations in which a presumably Muslim man is depicted beating up a Santa Claus. As the news agency dpa reports, the pictures also appeared on Facebook pages of Ditib associations in North Rhine-Westphalia and Baden-Württemberg.

Christmas represents the unbelief of Christians

Christmas stands for the unbelief of Christians, it is said, for example, in various texts that are spread in connection with such images. The term “Kuffar” is also used in this context: Unbelievers / opponents of God. “This is the same vocabulary that the ISIS uses,” the Islamism expert and author Ahmad Mansour (“Generation Allah”) told the Abendblatt. The fact that such images are also disseminated by Ditib-related organizations is “a bad sign”.

After all, Ditib is Hamburg’s partner in Salafism prevention. CDU faction leader André Trepoll accused the Ditib representatives of “opposing our society with their open rejection of Christian and legal holidays in Germany”. SPD member of parliament for citizenship Kazim Abaci said that the behavior of Ditib members made him “speechless”. Green Party leader Michael Gwosdz called the widespread pictures “completely tasteless”.

The New Year’s Eve celebrations are also criticised

The religious authority of Turkey, which also provides Ditib-Imame with sermons for Friday prayers, sent out a text at the end of the year criticizing the New Year’s Eve festival. The celebration is impermissible for Muslims, does not fit in the way of life of believers, and belongs to other cultures, according to the opinion. The sermons had also been controversially discussed in Turkey after the New Year’s Eve assassination in Istanbul. Ditib-Nord chief Sedat Şimşek asserted that these sermons had not been given in Germany.

It’s 1801 All Over Again

According to H. Numan, today the Barbary Coast has expanded to encompass the entire Western World.

It’s 1801 all over again

by H. Numan

At this moment the Dutch and other European governments have difficulty getting mohammedan nations to follow signed treaties. They are milked for all they are worth. It’s like going back into time to the 1800s when Barbary states did as they pleased. If you don’t learn from history, you have to do it all over again.

The Dutch government tried — in vain — to negotiate with Morocco to be able to deport Moroccan criminals back to their own country. The Moroccan government didn’t even want to receive a Dutch minister to talk about it. Other treaties are also not honored. For example, many Moroccans live on Dutch benefits for whatever reason. That can be disability, being unemployed, etc. Not a problem, they are entitled to it. However, you do have to declare all your possessions and financial accounts anywhere in the world. That’s what they don’t do. They consider possessions and money in Morocco (or in Turkey, or wherever) to be exempt. To do with whatever they feel like.

There is ample evidence that many Moroccan and Turkish nationals living in The Netherlands who claim benefits own real estate in their home countries. Or even have/run hotels there. Under Dutch law they have to declare those assets. The value would be deducted from their social benefits. Which would mean for them the end of their stay in Luilekkerland (candy land). One may be destitute in one country and claim benefits. Not if they own luxurious properties abroad, of course. That’s not how mohammedans like it. Infidels should pay their jizya humbly and without grumbling.

None of them sees this abuse of our social system as fraudulent. They merely collect their jizya. Nothing wrong with that. Neither do their governments. Both the Turkish and Moroccan authorities refuse to assist investigations into their citizens. Also, both Turkish and Moroccan law forbid their citizens to renounce nationality. It can be done — but it’s very very difficult to do so. Regardless of the fact that their citizens absolutely refuse to renounce their nationality.

We have the weird situation that several members of the Dutch parliament, including the chairman of the house, Khadija Arib, hold dual nationality. Mrs. Arib is both a Dutch and a Moroccan citizen. Likewise Ahmed Aboutaleb is the mayor of Rotterdam, with two nationalities. Dutch and Moroccan. Ahmed Marcouch is the mayor of the city of Arnhem. All of them flatly refuse to give up their original nationality.

It’s even worse than that. For example, Mr. Aboutaleb was interviewed. During the interview he was asked what he would do if his daughters were to come home with Dutch non-muslim boyfriends. He openly said that he would not accept that. His daughters will marry muslims. Period. Those are the words of our enlightened liberal mohammedan mayor of Rotterdam. He’s a moderate muslim. Just imagine a new mayor who’s less moderate … Abou was lucky to be interviewed by a progressive journalist. Image if he had been interviewed by a real journalist: he would have to answer the question ‘what would you do if your daughters came home with a black very dark-skinned atheist boy from Suriname or the Antilles?’ He’s clever enough to not say: throw both of them off the nearest balcony. But that’s almost certainly what he would have thought.
