EVERY WAR has casualties. This war is no different. We are fighting for liberty and equality, and we are fighting against an enemy — Islamic supremacism — which seeks to take it away by imposing Shari'a law wherever it can find the opportunity.
Islamic supremacists will be stopped in their tracks and their progress will be reversed when enough non-Muslims are made aware of the existence and the methods of the third jihad.
Each of us who have committed ourselves to this war will make sacrifices. We will suffer casualties. Maybe not physical injuries because this is a different kind of war for us non-military citizen warriors, but casualties nonetheless. Below are a few comments I've gleaned from other web sites and from notes sent to me. They are comments by brave citizen warriors fighting the war on the front lines and suffering casualties for the good of us all.
The reason I'm bringing this up is to put our sufferings in context. Rather than comparing our trials and tribulations with a status quo of everything humming along smoothly with no conflict, I wanted to contrast our war with wars of the past. For example, World War II. The photo above is in Normandy, where British and American and German and French soldiers lost their lives.
Even women and men in the French Resistance lost their lives. The losses we suffer as citizen warriors — even the tough ones like losing someone's friendship or losing a job — are fairly minor in comparison. This is a perspective we should remind ourselves of from time to time.
But still, the people who wrote the comments listed below are voluntarily giving up a comfortable apathy and have thrown themselves into the one thing that needs to be done: Education of our fellow non-Muslims about Islamic supremacism. I salute and honor these brave women and men for their sacrifices. Here are their comments:
1. It is getting more and more difficult to reach people to get them to understand. Yes, I've made some small headway lately, but the numbers of the newly awakened are very, very few. I do know somebody in the school system who broached the subject carefully. She was working as a substitute and had an impeccable reputation as a superb teacher and years of experience with that particular school system.
I'm sure that you've already guessed the outcome. She is now training for a different career entirely. The phone calls to substitute have dropped off so far as to make a living impossible.
As you likely know, several of us counterjihadists tried terrestrial radio last summer and into the fall. The donations were few and far between. No sponsors were forthcoming. Any feedback was next to nothing for the size of that market.
On a personal level, I've lost most of my friends over the issues we discuss here. I've lost clients as well. I'm not whining, merely stating the facts.
I believe that any additional waking up will not come without a heavy price of lives — here in America or in the UK. Many Americans don't give a rat's ass about what happens in any European nation other than the UK. In addition, good old American optimism works against us: people have lulled themselves with "It's gonna be okay."
2. It only took 55 Founders — people of character...Most of my former 'friends' are not around — it's tough being a 'prophet' — the ones I have, I treasure. The others, well, I simply don't have time for their go-along-to-get-along attitude...
3. I'm with you on the lost friends and slow to wake people up. In fact, some that I had won over have started to slip back. All hopeychangeylike.
4. My sister understands but doesn't want to deal with all the hatred and prefers to live in an ignorant state while nurturing her grandchildren. My niece has Muslim acquaintances and thinks they are peaceful and the call to stop the Islamic agenda is premature.
My other niece thinks it is a crime to disparage any other religion and refuses to listen to anything out of her PC world, including the truth. I find that the PC people seem to outnumber all others and they refuse to even listen to anything but the lies from CAIR.
It is discouraging to go up against the well-coordinated Muslim taqiyya as people want to believe in the goodness of others and they block out the daily Islamic atrocities as being aberrations. That is why I was thinking more along the lines of aggressive behavior but you are right in that it does nothing to win the minds of the non-Muslims. Getting more people involved is the key. I've seen too many rallies where the Muslims outnumber the peaceful protesters 5 to 1.
5. Yup, big fan of ACT for America and I'm trying to educate as many as I can, but found out that I'm losing a lot of friends too, so that's why I need some balance in it.
6. I became a Muslim in college during my "seeking" years. I grew up Christian and am blessed to be back in the embrace of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. My family did not "disown" me, but they didn't hide their true feelings. I have been freed from Islam for 15-16 yrs.
Most people I do talk with are Christians who "get it," they don't give me so much rebuttal and they're always interested to hear my experiences. The one "place" I can always go to stop an argument is, "Who are you to tell me my experiences?"
7. Most of the people I talk to don't have any knowledge of Islam or the Quran. In fact they don't want to hear about Islam due to the day-by-day relentless coverage of the barbaric acts of Muslims around the world. So the moment I use words like Muhammad, Quran, Islam or jihad, they turn off their minds and go into a state of selective deafness. Some just tell me that they don't want to hear about the hate and I should concentrate my attention on positive things like family and helping others. These are the same people that nod in agreement that Islam is a religion of peace and that Muslims should be given special status as they are always vilified by the Islamophobes.
I guess it helps to have a listener that is interested in hearing the truth but in my experience, the listeners I have talked to have already accepted the lies and deception of Islam.
It is a hard sell but you have to remain true to yourself and realize that for each willing listener, there are 10 who refuse to hear or learn anything about Islam.
Yes, it has reared its ugly head quite recently, and in some very forceful ways. And yes, we (the West, the East...et al) need to address it, as you say, now — leave it another year (bury your head in the sand...) and it will be 10 times worse.
The problems are many — I have no doubt that the whole Middle East will blame Israel, when all I see is them being attacked. To date, I don't think they have 'started' anything — and I am making a big distinction between throwing your military at some foe, and defending yourself. There are many who are caught by the Arab ace-in-the-hole, oil, and can't see past it. So they 'accommodate' things, in the hope that we can be neighbourly for another year, maybe more...?
It's a huge problem, and to be fair to the general population, many can't work out what to do about it. I think this is where sites like yours, and others, are vital. I am one of those who has been trying to work out what to do, and I hope that I don't start making too many mistakes. But to stay silent, while this wave of hatred rises up, cannot go on. We, the people, must be heard, and ways like this, through FaceBook, and any means at our disposal, must continue.
9. My friends are generally between the age of 22 to 35, and they are usually either drunk or stoned...they are not scared, they are ignorant...not stupid. They are street smart, but they have no clue...the topic is way too serious for these types of people...they want freaky or funny. They like Obama because his message is empty and filled with fluffy soft cuddly statements about hope and bla bla, that is my true belief. My friends are not bad people, they are just lazy...sitting around playing damn video games, drinking. Makes me sick, I have lost many friends to drugs.
I have been barking up their tree for years. It has been frustrating to say the least. But let me tell you, I have seen a huge change even in the last weeks...they are waking up. I just hope its not too late.
