The Cause Of Islamic Terrorism
Terrorists know their enemy very well. They have used our respect for religious freedom against us. They have used our commitment to free speech and human rights against us. They know us very well, but most of us don't know anything about them. In a very real sense, our ignorance is the cause of terrorism.
The Islamist War On Civilization and Computers
Masked gunman busted in on 17 young men busy surfing the internet and forced them to stand on chairs while the gunmen broke all the screens, and then burned all the computers. Why? Is this a raid on Westerners? Is this in retaliation for U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia? No. The computer nerds were Palestinian and so were the gunmen. This is but one of many indications that the grievances of the Islamic world are merely pretexts. The actual goal is to convert the whole world into an Islamic state.
The Persecution Of Believers
Islamic jihad violence has captured worldwide attention when focused on unbelievers – in the Twin Towers, as well as in London, Madrid, Bali, and in so many other places. But the jihadists don’t hesitate to target fellow Muslims as well, when they regard them as insufficiently Islamic.

Islam and Terrorism
Mark A. Gabriel was born and raised in Egypt. He was a Muslim who had memorized the Koran by the time he was 12 years old. And he spent eleven years at the most respected university in the Islamic world: Al-Azhar. He earned his bachelor's, master's, and doctorate degrees there studying Islamic history. If you want an author with enough knowledge to write and authoritative terrorism book, this is the man.
Warning To The West
An ex-Muslim tells us what we need to worry about.
Irshad Manji, the author of this article says, "Religion is no innocent bystander in the violence perpetrated by Muslims. Just as moderate Christians and Jews acknowledge the nasty side of their holy texts, modern Muslims ought to come clean about how our sacred script informs terror. One can argue that certain passages are being politically exploited — and, indeed, they are. The point is, however, that they couldn't be exploited if they didn't exist."
How Islam Spreads
Certain elements of Mohammed's teachings cause the religion to spread and take over countries.
Dar al-Harb vs. Dar al-Islam
A crucial distinction made in Islamic theology is that between dar al-harb and dar al-islam. To put it simply, dar al-harb (territory of war or chaos) is the name for the regions where Islam does not dominate, where divine will is not observed, and therefore where continuing strife is the norm. By contrast, dar al-islam (territory of peace) is the name for those territories where Islam does dominate, where submission to God is observed, and where peace and tranquility reign.
The Life Of Muhammad

Is Islam a Religion of Peace?
This link goes to a site that simply lists all the Islam-inspired violence around the world since September 11th. It is an amazingly long list. It makes you wonder.
Osama's Worst Nightmare

Ms. magazine has named her a “Feminist for the 21st Century” and The New York Times has dubbed her “Osama bin Laden’s worst nightmare.” She takes that as a compliment.
What Is al Qaeda Up To?
The long-range strategy of the Third Jihad depends on the accomplishment of three strategic goals.
1. The U.S. withdrawing from the region just as it did in Southeast Asia, following Vietnam.
2. The terrorists taking control of the oil wealth in the Muslim countries, which would be upwards to 75% of known reserves, and
3. Using nuclear weapons or other WMDs to annihilate Israel.
A further outcome of successfully achieving these objectives would be to place the United Nations as the sole arbiter in East/West negotiations.
"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction."
How To Create An Islamic State
The point of this article is that there has been a pattern to the transformation of countries into Islamic States and there are planners behind these takeovers even when the vast majority of both Muslims and non-Muslims are unaware of these activities. Compare the following recipe with what has happened and is happening in Malaysia, Philippines, Sudan, Indonesia, India-Pakistan-Kashmir, Britain, Algeria, USA, etc. It's enough to send a cold shiver up your spine.
The Islamization of Europe?
Only a few years ago, mass-murder attacks on the West in the name of Islam, like those of September 11, would have seemed like a thriller writer’s fantasy. Nor would anyone have imagined that a bombing by Islamists could swing a general election in a European country, that a Dutch movie-maker might be shot dead on the street for a film about the abuse of women in Islam, or that one might find oneself watching, on television, the beheading of Western hostages by men crying out Allahu Akhbar! over their savage deeds. Pakistan now has a nuclear bomb, and this weapon is widely described as an Islamic bomb. To judge by their pronouncements, the Islamist leaders of Iran can hardly wait to perfect and use their derivative of it.
Pathways To Jihadi Terrorism

The Indictment Of An Entire Religion
Michael Graham, the man who was fired from his talk-show-host job for his hard-hitting comments about Islam, wrote this op-ed piece.
Is Islam a Violent Religion?
What are we dealing with? The issue may be much bigger than Iraq and al Qaeda. Check out this quote from the Koran: "Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war)." (Sura 9:5) Of course all this might be political propaganda (or Jewish, Hindu, or Christian propaganda).
Sane people of all faiths and nationalities and races share certain universal values. If we focused on the values, we might create a strong common bond.
