Use the Principle of Commitment and Consistency to Recruit Others to the Cause

Monday

This is one of six "weapons of influence" from the book, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion. The principle says that once you have committed yourself to something, you tend to remain consistent. That is, you become resistant to changing your mind about what you believe (once you have expressed some commitment to it).

And the more you have done to express your commitment, and the more public you have made your commitment, the more resistant you are to changing your mind about it.

For example, in one experiment, researchers went around in a neighborhood and asked people if they would be willing to put a three-inch square sign in their window that said "Be a safe driver."

Two weeks later a different volunteer went through the same neighborhood and asked for something outrageous: "Would you be willing to put a billboard on your lawn supporting driver safety?"

Those who had earlier agreed to the little sign were much more likely to say yes to the billboard than people who had refused the little sign. And almost everyone who they asked to put the billboard on their front lawn who had not been asked to display the little sign refused.

In other words, once someone committed themselves a little bit to the cause by putting the little sign in their window, they were more committed to the cause. They were more willing to do something about it. This is the principle of commitment and consistency.

The author, Robert Cialdini, defined the principle this way:

"It is, quite simply, our nearly obsessive desire to be (and to appear) consistent with what we have already done. Once we have made a choice or taken a stand, we will encounter personal and interpersonal pressures to behave consistently with that commitment. Those pressures will cause us to respond in ways that justify our earlier decision."

So when you can get someone to sign a petition to stop Saudis from teaching hatred in American schools or to stop imams from preaching jihad in American mosques, the person who signs it commits herself a little to the cause.

It is a small act. It only takes a few moments. But signing a petition makes her more committed to the cause in general. She may begin to think of herself as an advocate for the cause. She will be more likely to commit to something bigger for the cause in the future when an opportunity arises.

Using the Principle of Social Proof to Defeat the Third Jihad

Sunday

SOCIAL PROOF is one of six "weapons of influence" from the book, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion. When people are uncertain about how to respond, the principle of "social proof" says that usually people will look around and see what others are doing and do the same.

If you see two people have signed a petition, statistically, you will be less willing to sign it than if you see a million people have already signed it — especially if you aren't sure of the merits of the proposition.

If you saw a single protester on the street, would you pay much attention to him? But what if both sides of the street were filled with protesters? Wouldn't it make you more curious about what they were protesting? This is the principle of social proof.

A just read a good example of social proof in the
book, The New Concise History of the Crusades. The crusaders were trying to capture the great walled city of Constantinople, but they were outnumbered and the city was well defended. But by luck, the crusaders made a hole in a back gate to the city, and one crusader climbed through the hole to find himself face-to-face with enemy soldiers. The lone crusader boldly drew his sword and ran toward the group of enemy soldiers. They turned and ran! Other soldiers inside the walled city saw their fellow soldiers fleeing from something (they knew not what), and they abandoned their posts and fled too. This panic spread throughout the city.

Amazingly, the crusaders who came through the hole walked over and opened the city gates. There were no soldiers inside left to stop them. They easily captured the city
one of the largest and most well-built walled cities in the world. How? Because of the principle of social proof. Once a few soldiers were seen fleeing, other soldiers didn't know what to do. So they did what others were doing, and the more people who did it, the more it seemed like the thing to do. (Read the whole story here.) Social proof is a powerful principle of influence.

We can use this principle in many ways to help defeat the third jihad. For example, when you find a good petition, you can encourage your friends to sign it. They will see that many other people have deemed it worthy of signing, and that will help them accept the information. Because of the principle of social proof, that information will be considered more valid. Without any pressure from anyone else, this seedling of validity can evolve into their personal belief.

You can use this principle in personal conversations, too. Think about it for a moment — are you likely to listen to someone who seems to be the only one who thinks that way? Or would you be more open to hearing what millions of people believe?

We need to think about this when we're telling people about Islamic supremacism and the third jihad. When you talk to people and you imply that "nobody knows this," or that all the mainstream media is crazy, or in any way imply that you are the only one who knows The Truth, you automatically prevent people from listening. Their guard goes up. You have made the social proof principle work against you.


Instead, you need to let your listener know that a lot of people think this way. If you can add authority to these other people, so much the better (authority is another one of the six principles). Let your listener know movies have been made about it, hundreds of books have been written about it, and millions of people are trying to do something about it around the world.

This social proof will give weight to what you say and help awaken people to the situation, and that's what we need right now more than anything.

Islamic Supremacists Use a Schoolyard Bully's Technique

Saturday

WHEN A BULLY wants to pick a fight with someone, what does he do? He could just come up and hit his victim. But usually that's not what happens. More likely, a bully will call him names, insult his mother, insult his manhood, "accidentally" knock his books out of his hands, trip him, embarrass him — a bully will do anything and everything he can think of to get a rise out of his victim — and then when he tries to defend himself, he uses the victim's hostility as an excuse to beat him up.

He puts his victim in a painful double-bind. If he stays silent or runs away, he is publicly humiliated. If he fights to defend himself, he risks losing his teeth and getting expelled from school for being a troublemaker.

This is the same double-bind technique used by Muslims since the time of Mohammad.

In Mecca, even before Mohammad had a huge, well-armed following, he provoked others in the city, criticizing them in public. They responded by criticizing Mohammad and Islam, which Mohammad said was an attack on the one true religion — an attack that must be defended.

While he was in Mecca, Mohammad was protected by his uncle, a powerful and influential elder, so his detractors didn't go too far. But when Mohammad's uncle died, the Meccans basically threw Mohammad out of their town. Mecca was known far and wide for its religious tolerance, but what can you do with someone who is so intolerant of anyone else's religion?

Later Mohammad attacked the caravans of Mecca, killing the camel drivers and carrying off the booty, which he justified because the Meccans had censored him and rejected Allah. In other words, they had "attacked" Islam, and Mohammad was merely avenging Allah and defending Islam. He eventually used the same justification for attacking and capturing the entire city of Mecca.

So let's look at the big picture here. Mohammad provoked the Meccans, antagonized them, called them names, embarrassed them, defamed their religions, and when they tried to defend their religions, he used their defensive hostility as an excuse to beat them up.

Every devout Muslim knows he should follow Mohammad's example, so we see Islamic supremacists doing the very same thing today.

Islam tries to spread. When anyone tries to hinder Islam's aggressive encroachment, Muslims consider it an "attack" on the one true religion, and "defend" the attack. It's schoolyard bullies on a bigger scale.


So what's the solution? What's the best way to deal with bullies? Either you need an authority to intervene — an authority with enough power to enforce their authority — or you need to have a strong enough deterrent so the bully doesn't want to mess with you. If you are carrying a baseball bat in one of your hands, for example, a bully is not likely to knock the books out of your other hand.

A willingness to use force will often deter a bully. But you had better not be bluffing. As Lee Harris said, "In a world full of bluffers, the ruthless will rule." Someone will eventually call your bluff and then they will really bully you.

Of course, dealing with Islamic supremacists, part of this "willingness to use force" means military force. But there are many ways to use force. Here are some examples:

A group of Islamic supremacists tried to intimidate people into silence with lawsuits. Recently, they have been served with a lawsuit by the people at Mapping Sharia.

Islamic supremacists have organized and lobbied, and they exerted a strong influence on politicians who are afraid of offending such an organized lobby. ACT! For America has organized to defeat them.

Islamic supremacists have rioted and violently tried to intimidate newspapers. But some defied them, and the more newspapers and bloggers that defied them, the more the violence defeated its own purpose by promoting defiance to their suppression.

When we can see what Islamic supremacists are doing as simple bullying, the solution to the problem becomes clear and even obvious. We do not need appeasement, bluffing, or propitiation because those will only encourage the bullies.
We need strength, unity, firmness, and a willingness to use force if necessary.

Here is a list of things you can do to exert strength, to help unify non-Muslims, to act with firmness, and to wield force in the fight against Islamic supremacism: What Can a Civilian Do To Stop Islam's Relentless Encroachment?

A Beautiful Pattern of Conduct

Sunday

"Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah."

- From USC's
Compendium of Muslim Texts

"He demonstrated good examples in all aspects of life, Allah says: 'You have indeed in the Apostle of Allah a beautiful pattern of (conduct) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day and who engages much in the praise of Allah.' (Qur'an, 33:21)."

- From the
Nigerian Muslim's Network

It is a basic principle of Islam that a Muslim should follow the example of the Prophet Mohammad. This is stated in the Quran (Islam's holiest book) no less than 91 times. This is one of the most dangerous and misunderstood facts about Islam. How does a Muslim know how to be a Muslim? By following Mohammad as an example.
A Muslim cannot read the Qur'an and discover how to be a Muslim. Not one of the "five pillars of Islam" is in the Qur'an. So it is almost impossible for someone to be a Muslim but not consider Mohammad an example to emulate.

What kind of example was Mohammad? He was kind to his fellow Muslims, and he was often cruel to non-Muslims, especially if they criticized Islam or hindered its relentless expansion. He was perhaps a typical seventh-century warlord — ordering assassinations of his enemies, torturing people for information, owning slaves and having sex with them, and killing enemies in mass executions — but his example is preserved in writing, and so is the Qur'anic encouragement to all devout Muslims to follow his example.

What should non-Muslims do about this? The first and most important action we need to take is the education of our fellow non-Muslims. It is unbelievable to me how ignorant almost everybody is about Mohammad. Many people I talk to — even "educated" people — aren't even sure what part Mohammad plays in Islam. They ask me things like, "Is he one of the main Muslim leaders or founders?"

Talk to people about Mohammad and tell them this important fact: Muslims are supposed to follow Mohammad's example, as it says more than seventy times in the Qur'an, Islam's most important holy book.

This is frightening information, and whenever you present scary information, I recommend you go out of your way to make it as unfrightening as you can so people will be willing to listen to you, and I also encourage you to tell people there are things they can do about it. Do not overwhelm them or leave them without any recourse.

And I would appreciate it if you let us know what happens when you talk to people about Mohammad. What do they say? How do they react? How do you respond? Give us the good, the bad, and the ugly, and let us learn from your example.

Share Online Videos

Friday

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:

1. Three Things About Islam

2. Fitna

3.
A 39-minute clip of Obsession

4. Anne Korin on a solution to OPEC's oil monopoly

5.
An interview with Brigitte Gabriel, the founder of ACT! For America (this is a 46-minute interview, but worth watching).

6. Pat Condell: Islam is not a Victim

7. Robert Spencer: A Simple Plan to End Islamophobia

8.
The Third Jihad

9. Muslim Pirates Against America

10. Jon Stewart, Live From Mumbai (funny)


11. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam - Robert Spencer

12. The Truth About Muhammad - Robert Spencer

13. Sharia Law - Bill Warner

14. Geert Wilders' Warning to America

15. The Quran Challenge

16. My Brother the Islamist

17. Burning Half a Million Korans

Be smart about sharing videos. Send only one video at a time. Don't make it a mass mailing, and don't overwhelm someone with too many videos. Write a short, personal note that tells your friend why you think that particular video is important to watch. And try to match the video to the person. For example, if you're sending it to someone who is a dedicated liberal, don't send a Fox News video because they're likely to disregard it as propaganda before they watch it.

Also keep in mind that once you share a video, you have the responsibility of letting that person know what they can do about it. Do not send videos without also giving a link to a petition they can sign, a little blurb about ACT! For America, or the domain name, WhatYouCanDoAboutIslam.com. Information about Islam will be a lot easier to take if they know they can do something about it.

When you find good videos not on this list, please send them to me or post them in comments below. These are tools we can all use. Thank you.

Why Don't We Just Concentrate On The Taliban?

Monday

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.

Stop Saudis From Teaching Hatred in American Schools

Thursday

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.

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.
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.

An Abridged Koran

Sunday

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.

The Third Jihad

Friday

ISLAM IS ON the march. Today that march is known as the "third jihad." The term refers to the murder of non-Muslims around the world (for the crime of being non-Muslims), but it refers to much more than that. There are many ways to wage jihad, and nearly every Muslim can play a part.

For example, Muslims have deliberately emigrated into foreign lands in order to fulfill Allah's command to make the whole world submit to Islam. In those new countries, they are organizing and building up their political power. Islamic supremacists are recruiting new Muslims into their ranks every day. Some have gained vast wealth and are using it to build mosques and madrassas all over the world. Islamic supremacists have infiltrated the political machinery in Western nations, they've successfully manipulated the press and disabled and silenced resistance against them, and of course, they are also killing non-Muslims around the world. This is the third jihad.

Jihad means "struggle," but a particular kind of struggle. Jihad means to struggle to make Islam dominant over all other religions and governments. This is one of the religious duties of all devout Muslims, and according to Mohammad, it is the most important obligation a Muslim must fulfill.

The first jihad started with Mohammad. His armies conquered all of Arabia. In the hundred years after his death, his armies conquered most of the Middle East, North Africa and Spain. The first jihad lasted from 622 AD until 750 AD. Read more about that here.

The second major jihad started in 1071 AD.
Islamic armies toppled Constantinople and spread into Europe, India, and further into Africa. The second jihad began to decline when the Muslim army was stopped on September 11th, 1683 at the gates of Vienna, Austria. Read more about the second jihad here.

The Islamic push to dominate
all other cultures, all other religions, and all other governments has never stopped. But we are referring to large waves of success for the Islamic expansion; periods where vast new territories were brought under the control of Shari'a law.

Now we are in the third jihad, the third great wave.

Non-Muslims in the past have fought back, of course (otherwise the whole world would already be ruled by Islam). Some successfully resisted subjugation.

But many countries and cultures took too long to recognize the threat or organized their resistance too slowly, and they were swallowed up by Islam's relentless aggression.

Today, Islamic supremacists are waging jihad in subtler and more clever ways (waging jihad by gaining concessions, for example), in addition to simple violent aggression, but non-Muslims around the world are beginning to notice the pattern and are rousing themselves to defend their cultures, their religions, their governments, and their lives.


I hope you join us in defeating the third jihad. We need you to help others recognize the threat. We need your participation in organizing an effective resistance. And we need to move quickly. Here's how to get started.

Putting Deaths By Jihadis Into Perspective

Wednesday

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?"


.

So, you think the Ku Klux Klan
and the Spanish Inquisition are bad?
So do we, but...

Put the Numbers in Perspective


More people are killed by Islamists each year than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition combined.
(source)

Islamic terrorists murder more people everyday than the Ku Klux Klan has in the last 50 years.

More civilians were killed by Muslim extremists in two hours on September 11th than in the 36 years of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland.

19 Muslim hijackers killed more innocents in two hours on September 11th than the number of American criminals executed in the last 65 years.
.


These four facts come from thereligionofpeace.com. Memorize them and use them in your conversations. The main battle we have to fight is in the minds of those who don't know much about Islam. We will not have the collective political will to do what must be done unless many more people understand the nature of Islamic supremacism.

Islamic Supremacism

Monday

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."
