A short video to brighten your holiday, or at least amuse you.
THE MOST important thing we need to do right now in the free world is to educate non-Muslims about the danger of Islam. One easy and inexpensive way to do that is to share good online videos. Almost everyone will take a few minutes and watch a video.
Below is a list of videos I recommend. I will keep this list ongoing, adding to it as I find more good ones, and deleting or finding other sources for videos that become unavailable.
Until enough people know what's going on, we will not have the collective political will to effectively stop Islam's relentless encroachment. So this is a vital activity. And one effective way to enlighten your fellow non-Muslims is sharing online videos.
Nobody will be educated enough from videos alone, but it may pique their interest enough that they'll learn more on their own, or ask you questions. Either way, videos can serve an important function in the war to defeat the third jihad.
Here are our top video choices for citizen warriors like you to use in this noble battle:

SOMEONE ASKED me today, "Why don't we just concentrate on the Taliban?" The question makes assumptions that are so off base, it took me a few minutes to marshal my answer. And here it is:
There are two kinds of Islamists. An Islamist is a Muslim who practices the "full version" of Islamic teachings, including the political part. So just as there are politically-active groups such as Socialists and Capitalists, there are also Islamists — adherents to a political ideology, in this case, the Islamic political ideology.
There are two kinds of Islamists: Hot-headed Islamists and long-range Islamists (read more about this). The hot-headed Islamists blow stuff up and kill people. The Taliban, al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah — these are all hot-headed Islamists. The standard way of dealing with them is to wait until they kill someone and then hunt down the particular people who did the killing and put them behind bars. This is the law-enforcement model.
Dealing with Islamists, the law-enforcement model is inadequate. The Islamists are not simply criminals. They are political revolutionaries and they are working toward political goals such as intimidating Spaniards to vote for a wimpy leader (which was the purpose of the Madrid bombings, and it worked) or preventing newspapers from publishing anything critical of Islam (such as the "cartoon riots" that left 187 people dead because some cartoons were published in a Danish newspaper).
Even if you hunted all those people down who were responsible for the deaths, and put them all in jail, you would have done next to nothing that would actually stop the violence, because the ideology driving the violence would still be alive and well and held in the minds of 1.3 billion people.
Not all of them are hot-headed, however.
The long-range Islamists may actually be more dangerous in the long run. Long-range Islamists work toward the same political goals as the hot-headed Islamists. They just use different methods.
The primary political goal of all Islamists is to turn all countries into Islamic states. Even democracies. Especially democracies, as they have recently done with the previously-democratic country of Lebanon. The number of tactics for a long-range Islamist is almost unlimited.
For example, long-range Islamists put political pressure on television stations and radio stations and newspapers to get journalists fired whenever they utter a criticism of Islam. Long-range Islamists encourage Muslims to raise as many children as they can to increase their numerical voting power. I'm not guessing about this. Islamist networks publish their goals and methods online for anyone to see.
I've been a subscriber to many of the mainstream Muslim organizations in America and I read their publications. They are fairly open about what they're doing and why they're doing it. They are not ashamed of the fact that they think Islamic law is the only good way to govern and that it is their religious duty to work toward the Islamification of governments around the world.
Rich oil billionaires in Saudi Arabia and Iran are pouring money into building mosques and madrassas all over the world and because these are their mosques, they get to choose who speaks in those mosques and what they speak about, and they control what is taught in the madrassas. They teach jihad. They teach hatred toward non-Muslims. And they articulate the Islamic political goal of dominance over all other religions and governments. They teach a supremacist ideology.
Mosque-goers are taught to avoid assimilating into the host culture, and to avoid making friends with non-believers. (It says in the Qur'an that a Muslim should never be a true friend to an unbeliever. A Muslim can pretend to be a friend, but must never actually feel kinship or friendship with a kafir. It is a sin.)
So they create their own little Muslim states within the democracies and then push for concessions. In Germany, Belgium, and Britain they can now practice Shari'a law — which is Islamic law — and their decisions, even the ones that violate women's rights enjoyed by others in that country, are upheld by the government. Muslims are gaining concessions constantly.
The rich Saudis, and the political activists taking advantage of democratic processes, and the Muslims deliberately having as many children as possible are all "long-range Islamists." In twenty years, they will have produced tens of millions of young Muslims steeped in hatred for kafirs and willing to die for Islam. These will be native-born Muslims, not foreigners who can be deported or barred from entering.
Many people think Islamic terrorists became terrorists because the United States didn't give enough money to poor countries. And they think what we ought to do about terrorism is to hunt down the ones who kill people and put them in jail.
In other words, these people have no clue about the cause or cure of Islamic terrorism. The Islamists are not playing around. Hamas and al Qaeda are actively seeking a nuclear weapon and they would not hesitate to use it. They are perfectly willing to martyr their fellow Muslims in the cause as they have shown innumerable times when they kill fifty unsuspecting Muslims just to kill 20 kafirs.
It would be nice if we could just hunt down the terrorists and put them in jail. Problem solved. We could go about our business. But unfortunately, that won't solve the problem.
What can be done? Good question. This is such a huge issue that the solution will have to be long-range and carefully planned. The organization doing the most to solve the long-term problem is ACT! For America.
There are many practical and effective things you can do, some of which you can start today. Go here to find a list of actions that can make a real difference in defeating the Islamists' long-range plans.
SAUDIS ARE USING their oil money to build and run schools all over the world, including in the United States, and these schools teach Islamic supremacism — the kafir-hating, democracy-overthrowing, violent, intolerant Islam we are here to defeat. Learn more about the Wahhabi Invasion of America here.
We've got to start somewhere, right? Here's a first step: Sign ACT! For America's petition to stop these madrassas in America. Enough signatures on this could send a powerful message to congress. Even the effort to get people to sign it is a way to introduce information to them, while showing them that others are aware of it too. Here's what the petition says:
We the people of the United States request an immediate stop to Saudi Wahhabi hateful education especially post 9/11 tragedy where 15 out of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia and were taught such education. This is just a small example of what is being taught.The text of the petition then goes on to give examples of the teachings found in the textbooks. Please sign this petition and get as many others as you can to sign it too.
We the people of the United States of America request that you, our elected officials, put an immediate stop to the Saudi Madrassas in the United States. The cornerstone of education in Saudi Arabia consists of the most pervasive themes in Islam. The book, published by the Saudi Cultural Mission to the U.S., quotes a document which contains 236 principles that explain how students should promote loyalty to Islam by denouncing any system or theory that conflicts with Islamic law. The students are also taught to understand Islam in a correct manner, how to plant and spread Islam throughout the world, and how 'to fight spiritually and physically for the sake of Allah,' with emphasis on early Islamic glories.
I HAVE previously recommended a readable version of the Qur'an, called A Simple Koran. It contains every passage in the Qur'an, written in the order the Qur'an was written (rather than the traditional way or ordering the chapters), written in plain modern English, and it even has biographical information to help you understand passages referring to events in Mohammad's life. It's a great version of the Qur'an.
But I have found something even better: An Abridged Koran, written by the same people (CSPI Publishing).
Every non-Muslim should read this book (since 61 percent of the book is about non-Muslims).
You should know its contents because your life is being influenced by it. How? Islamic supremacists are studiously attempting to fulfill its commands, and in doing so, have already changed security procedures for getting onto planes, massively influenced the economy, made what should have been a simple regime change in Afghanistan and Iraq into a bloody struggle, killed 270 million people over the last 1400 years and are still killing people every day, working hard and effectively to undermine democratic governments and freedom of the press around the world, and more is yet to come.
What does it say in their holy book? What are they trying to do? What are their goals? What methods does the book recommend to achieve those goals? Find the answer to these questions and many more in An Abridged Koran. It has all the information in A Simple Koran, but with one difference: The repetition has been removed. So when you're done with An Abridged Koran, you will have read all the information in contained in the Qur'an.
There is a tremendous amount of repetition in the Qur'an. For instance, the story of Moses and the Pharaoh is told 39 times. In An Abridged Koran that story is told only once. So you get the meaning, but without the redunancy.
When you take out all the repetition, the book is only 220 pages long. I urge you to stop taking everyone else's word for it, and read it yourself.
Take the pledge: Read the Quran.

ONE WELL-PLACED FACT can ruin a whole belief system. What you'll see below are four short facts you can use in your conversations. When you're educating your fellow non-Muslims about Islamic supremacism, sometimes a perfect opportunity will arise to say one of these four facts, and if it's the right fact at the right time, it will sink in and start dismantling the person's multicultural blindness. It could be the beginning of their enlightenment.
I think we should all memorize these four facts. Especially the one about the Inquisition because that seems to be the most common comeback I hear as soon as I say anything critical of Islam: "Yes, but Christianity has done a lot of killing in its name too. What about the Inquisition?"
ISLAMIC SUPREMACISM is the belief that Islam is superior to other religions, cultures, and governmental systems, and the belief that Islam's superiority entitles Muslims to dominate, control, and rule non-Muslims.
Islam is a supremacist religion. The Hadith and Qur'an command every Muslim to strive until Islam dominates all other religions. The Qur'an says very clearly that the only legitimate form of government is Allah's. According to mainstream, well-established Islamic teachings, the goal of Islam is to make the whole world submit to the law of Allah (Shari'a).
If Islam is an inherently supremacist religion, then the term "Islamic supremacism" is redundant. Simply "Islam" will do. But I often use the term "Islamic supremacism" rather than simply "Islam" because first of all, most people don't know Islam is inherently supremacist. So if I say something critical of "Islam," some people will immediately stop listening because I am clearly a bigoted Islamophobe, or they think I must be ignorant if I'm implying "all Muslims are terrorists."
The use of the term "Islamic supremacists" when talking about Muslims waging jihad against non-Muslims, prevents this reaction and allows the uninitiated to listen.
Most people believe Islam has been "hijacked" by a small percentage of extremists, and they think that's who I'm talking about when I say "Islamic supremacists," so they're comfortable and can listen to the information.
Hopefully, they will eventually learn that Islam has not been hijacked and that the "fundamentalists" are following basic, mainstream Islamic teachings, and that Islam is political at its core. They will hopefully learn Islam not only encourages intolerance and violence against "unbelievers," but commands all Muslims to show their devotion to Allah by fighting for Islamic domination over all other governments and nations.
But in the meantime, by using this term, we can begin the education process.
Another reason to use the term "Islamic supremacism" is to avoid arousing the ire of those who call themselves "Muslim" but reject the political nature of Islamic teachings.
If you are one of the people who don't know about the supremacist nature of Islam, I encourage you to read the Qur'an for yourself. Some people will say Islam is a religion of peace. Others will say the teachings mandate continual warfare against anyone who resists the domination of Islam. If you haven't read the Qur'an, how can you determine who is correct?
You might think maybe they're both correct. Maybe the Qur'an is written in parables and vague, mystical language; maybe it it full of contradictions, and people can pick and choose passages to justify anything they want.
I have read the Qur'an and I can tell you it is no such thing. It is written in clear and forceful language by a single man. There are contradictions in the Qur'an, but the Qur'an itself tells the reader how to deal with the contradictions (the peaceful, tolerant passages have been abrogated, that is, they've been canceled and replaced by intolerant, violent passages).
Should you believe me? No, you shouldn't. You should read the Qur'an yourself. It isn't that hard to do. Then you will know for sure.
Read about a version of the Qur'an that's readable to Westerners.
Once you are initiated, I encourage you to use the term "Islamic supremacism" when you're talking to people, at least until you discover how much they know. If they know about the supremacist nature of Islamic teachings, you can streamline the phrase by dropping the word, "supremacism."
