Islam's Relentless Encroachment in Malaysia

Saturday

MANY OF US forget that when we fight for freedom, when we speak up about Islam, even when when we initiate legislation for our own country, we are giving hope to millions around the world who live in countries already too far gone, where it is almost impossible to do anything about Islam's relentless encroachment because Islam has wormed its way into the government and started making laws intended to protect Islam and diminish or eliminate all competing ways of life.

We received the following message from a woman named Jasmine who has written to us before:

Thank you Citizen Warrior. I'm from Malaysia (click on the map above to see a larger image), a Muslim majority country. Population is: 60 to 65% Malays, 20 to 25% Chinese and Indians about 10 to 15%.

All Malays MUST be Muslims. No freedom of choice for the Malays on religion; a sizeable proportion of the Indians are Muslims and some Chinese are Muslims.

If a non-muslim (usually a Chinese or Indian) wanted to marry a Malay, he/she has to be converted to the Islamic faith.

Our constitution says we have religious freedom. But slowly, the majority is pushing for Shari'a law. Recently, the government forbade the use of "Allah" in the Malay language, citing all Malays are Muslims and the use of "Allah" will confuse the Muslims.

BUT in East Malaysia, (Sabah & Sarawak States), the indigeneous people speak the Malay language. These Malay-speaking indigenous people are mostly Christians. Therefore when the Malay-speaking indigeneous people worship, the word "Allah" is used. They also use the Malay version of the Bible.

The court actually ruled that "Allah" can be used in the Malay language in translating or worshiping. There is mayhem, churches were attacked with one badly burnt on the ground floor. If you want more news from Malaysia, link to this site: http://www.malaysia-today.net

I'M SCARED FOR THE GENERATIONS TO COME.

Jasmine (I have changed her name at her request) also sent me this article: Malaysia and the Myth of Islamic Tolerance.

Sometimes when I read about how Islam works, how they gain power by gaining concessions until they have enough power to begin establishing laws, it all seems abstract or distant until I hear from someone to whom it is happening right now, and it makes it all too real.

In our quest to stop the third jihad, we need to be effective. The Islamic supremacists are not messing around. They are actively trying to influence governments all over the world to become more Islamic, and they are
succeeding in Malaysia and many other places, including Egypt.

We must stop their encroachment. How? What can you do? I love that question! There are a lot of effective things you can do. Join ACT for America, get others to join, sign up for their newsletter, and sign up to give them a monthly contribution. Also, talk to people about Islam. Teach them what you know. And if you don't know much about Islam or if you don't know much about influencing people, tell people about the Girl Effect.

For many more ideas about how to defeat
the third jihad, read What Can a Civilian Do?

Let's get it done.

Is the Quran Similar to Mein Kampf?

Friday

BIG THINGS are brewing in the Geert Wilders trial. And it may become a catalyst to a breakthrough in public awareness of the doctrines of Islam. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Stop The Trial Of Geert Wilders, Leon de Winter wrote:

The Amsterdam court trying the controversial Dutch politician is now preoccupied with the question of whether this book (the Qur'an), sacred to more than a billion believers, can be compared to one of the most vile publications in the history of Western civilization — Hitler's "Mein Kampf."

In his writing and speeches, Mr. Wilders has found these two works to be similar in terms of their anti-Semitism and incitement to hatred, and has thus called for a publishing ban on the Quran similar to the one in place for "Mein Kampf." This is what triggered Mr. Wilders's prosecution for discriminatory and insulting remarks against Muslims and Islam.

The court will have to determine just how similar the two books are! And they will do it on camera.

This trial may be the best thing that has ever happened to the citizen warriors of the world who have been trying to educate our fellow non-Muslims about Islam's relentless encroachment. Geert's trial is going to help bring to light the content of Islamic doctrine to an audience who would normally avoid the knowledge.

Thank you, Pastorius, for bringing this article to my attention.

Maybe Hell Froze Over

Tuesday

SOMETHING WONDERFUL happened. Time Magazine published an article that takes the military to task for being too politically correct! Wow. In an article by Mark Thompson, entitled, "The Fort Hood Report: Why No Mention of Islam?" he writes:

"...the lessons of 9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq, where jihadist extremism has driven deadly violence against Americans, are being not merely overlooked but studiously ignored."

I couldn't have put it better myself. In an effort to be politically correct or to avoid offending someone, the military has been deliberately overlooking what any fool can discover with a few hours of reading the Qur'an — that Islam is not a religion of peace.

But the era of blind multiculturalism is coming to an end. The stakes are too high now.

I'd like to thank Damien and Bosch Fawstin for bringing this encouraging milestone to my attention.

Geert Wilder's Hearing

Monday

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010, the trial of Geert Wilders began with a hearing. If you are not familiar with Geert's situation, go here. At the hearing, Geert gave this speech:

Mister Speaker, judges of the court,

I would like to make use of my right to speak for a few minutes.

Freedom is the most precious of all our attainments and the most vulnerable. People have devoted their lives to it and given their lives for it. Our freedom in this country is the outcome of centuries. It is the consequence of a history that knows no equal and has brought us to where we are now.

I believe with all my heart and soul that the freedom in the Netherlands is threatened. That what our heritage is, what generations could only dream about, that this freedom is no longer a given, no longer self-evident.

I devote my life to the defence of our freedom. I know what the risks are and I pay a price for it every day. I do not complain about it; it is my own decision. I see that as my duty and it is why I am standing here.

I know that the words I use are sometimes harsh, but they are never rash. It is not my intention to spare the ideology of conquest and destruction, but I am not any more out to offend people. I have nothing against Muslims. I have a problem with Islam and the Islamization of our country because Islam is at odds with freedom.

Future generations will wonder to themselves how we in 2010, in this place, in this room, earned our most precious attainment. Whether there is freedom in this debate for both parties and thus also for the critics of Islam, or that only one side of the discussion may be heard in the Netherlands? Whether freedom of speech in the Netherlands applies to everyone or only to a few? The answer to this is at once the answer to the question whether freedom still has a home in this country.

Freedom was never the property of a small group, but was always the heritage of us all. We are all blessed by it.

Lady Justice wears a blindfold, but she has splendid hearing. I hope that she hears the following sentences, loud and clear:

It is not only a right, but also the duty of free people to speak against every ideology that threatens freedom. Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States was right: The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

I hope that the freedom of speech shall triumph in this trial.

In conclusion, Mister Speaker, judges of the court.

This trial is obviously about the freedom of speech. But this trial is also about the process of establishing the truth. Are the statements that I have made and the comparisons that I have taken, as cited in the summons, true? If something is true then can it still be punishable? This is why I urge you to not only submit to my request to hear witnesses and experts on the subject of freedom of speech. But I ask you explicitly to honour my request to hear witnesses and experts on the subject of Islam. I refer not only to Mister Jansen and Mister Admiraal, but also to the witness/experts from Israel, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Without these witnesses, I cannot defend myself properly and, in my opinion, this would not be an fair trial.

See him give the speech (in Dutch) here: Weblog Geertwilders.

Illegal to Criticize Islam?

In response to Geert Wilder's trial in the Netherlands, Rusty Shackleford wrote:

"To single out Islam as the sole religion which cannot be criticized is to give it state sanctioned protection not enjoyed by other religious communities. It is, in fact, just what many of the critics say it is: creeping sharia.

"Because in the Netherlands, just like in Saudi Arabia, it is perfectly legal to criticize Christianity. But it is against the law to criticize Islam!"

Will Muslims Do The "Heavy Lifting?"

Sunday

In January 22nd issue of THE WEEK magazine, they had the following as their quote of the week:

"If the battle against Muslim terrorism is to be won, moderate Muslims will have to do the heavy lifting. If Americans and Westerners continue to take the lead, it will remain an 'us vs. them' war. If Muslims take the lead, it will be 'them vs. them,' co-religionists battling co-religionists, not 'infidel and oppressive outsiders battling 'victimized' Muslims. [So] where are the funds, the programs, and the personnel to re-educate young ones brainwashed in madrasas, and where are the alternate schools for these children? Where are the programs to show up at mosques everywhere and argue with mullahs who say that Allah wants them to kill fellow Muslims and infidels and enslave women?"

At first I thought it was wonderful that the author (Leslie Gelb from TheDailyBeast.com) used the phrase, "Muslim terrorism." Even that small acknowledgment of the Islamic role in terrorism seemed unusual to read in such a mainstream magazine as THE WEEK.

As Phil Cooke wrote, "I find it interesting that on those rare occasions when someone — no matter how wacked — commits a crime at an abortion clinic, there's no hesitation by the media to label them as a 'Christian.' But political correctness leaves them unable to mention 'Muslim' when it comes to terrorism."

And yet Leslie Gelb does just that and THE WEEK quotes him. But the underlying premise of his questions reveals an ignorance about the situation. Where are the Muslims who will argue with the mullahs? It's a silly question if you know the first thing about Islam. On what basis would these people argue? They cannot argue as Muslims because they would have no ground to stand on. To argue as Muslims they would have to base what they say on either the Qur'an or Mohammad's example, or both, and using those writings, they would have no way to argue that it's anti-Islamic to enslave women or kill infidels.

And if they were arguing against the mullahs on any other basis, they place themselves immediately into the category of infidels — or worse, apostates — and would not be listened to.

In other words, the Muslims cannot win any battle against "Muslim terrorists," and remain Muslims. And if they are no longer Muslims, there will be no co-religionists battling co-religionists.

We will not be saved by good-hearted Muslims, no matter how many of them there are. We will have to save ourselves.

Our first step is to make this understanding very common and widespread among non-Muslims: That it is fundamental to Islam to be at war with non-Muslims and to try to seize the reins of political power wherever they can. This is part of their religious teachings. It is their religious duty and they have no choice in the matter. It is not "fringe" and Muslims following these teachings are not "extremists."

And as soon as this knowledge is widespread enough, our first political action should be to stop importing Muslims into our countries.

What Does It Take To Get Through To People?

Wednesday

I RECENTLY RECEIVED the following email:

I just read your article on Citizen Warrior, "the struggle to reach people", along with many others. I'm from England in the UK and have to say I've had all the same reactions as Cheryl did in your article when discussing Islam. I've spent at least 6 months now spending my Sundays when I'm not busy researching thoroughly into jihad, Islamic teachings...etc. Everything I say about the issue to people is based on unbiased information and from Islamic teachings and quotes. Yet still, people have this political correctness and "you're a racist!!!" barrier around themselves.

It scares me to think that within maybe 40 - 50 years my children may be living under Shari'a law...all because of the ignorance of everybody even when faced with facts and the truth is just too great.

I began researching into Islam after a conversation with an atheist or "infidel" and a Muslim. The atheist guy I knew was talking to me actually at work about how they were attempting to dominate the world and their view of Jews and infidels...etc., are inferior to believers of Islam...etc. I at that time thought the guy who was saying this to me was just being a typical racist...then this Muslim guy who's a coworker butted in denying everything, and after an intense 2 minute argument...became a fight started by the Muslim.

That situation then actually really made me want to research into it...and by the way, I've even been deemed a "narrow-minded racist" for saying "Muslims" and categorising them as Muslims...now you see how ignorant people are...

Anyhow, I just thought I'd write to express how I got into the whole studying of Islam....and to actually have a conversation with someone who is educated on the topic and doesn't spit on me and march off.

This brought up such an important point, I decided to ask him if I could publish his letter, to which he graciously agreed. Here is what I replied to him:
We have exactly the same problem here in the U.S. Anybody who has learned about Islam and tried to share what they know with friends runs into the same brick wall.

But we will get through to most people eventually. We just need to be smart about it, keep improving our persuasion methods, and never give up.

And this is really the main point I have tried to get across, and the point of awakening for me: That it's not enough to be right. It's not enough to know what you're talking about. We will fail if we can't
get through, regardless of how correct we are. We have to be not only informed but good at getting through to people, and that cannot be done with forcefulness. You can't make people get it when they don't want to get it. You have to use "skillful means."

After I wrote back to him, I realized this needs more explanation. What do I mean by "skillful means?" We need to develop the
skill to influence what people believe. Simply delivering information doesn't work most of the time, as I'm sure you've discovered.

And those of us who like to learn are in luck: There are so many books (on the subject of influencing others) it is almost overwhelming. As we study about Islam, we should also study how to influence people. It is at
least as important. You should spend equal time on the two subjects.

The work we need to do is change
minds, change beliefs. Do you know a lot about how to do that? Do you know how to gain and maintain rapport with people? Do you know how beliefs are changed? (Hint: It is not by arguing.)

What kind of books am I talking about? The classic on the subject is How to Win Friends & Influence People. It is about basic things like acknowledging people, listening well, finding common ground, becoming likeable, etc. If someone doesn't like you, they find it much easier to reject what you're saying. And because of the nature of your message, your listener may be
looking for an excuse to reject it.

Even though
How to Win Friends is basic, my observation is that most of us don't actually practice those principles very often. If you're having difficulty getting through to people, get that book and study it. And then practice those principles. It will increase your success rate.

The best way to take in this information is listening to CDs or a digital audio file, so you can listen repeatedly. Use your drive time to master this material. Take in a little every day and practice it every chance you get.

You are a citizen warrior and this is a key factor in your training. Sometimes a warrior needs to be trained in things she or he may not enjoy learning. Too bad. Trust me, you
need to learn this material well if you want to be effective.

Once you've got that well in hand, the next level of skill is using principles of influence like social proof and commitment and consistency. These are from the excellent book, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion.

For advanced influencing techniques, I recommend these two books:

Sleight of Mouth

Magic of Rapport Revised

These deal with more sophisticated methods like matching and mirroring representational systems, posture and gestures, voice tone, tempo and volume, breathing rate, and specific words and phrases.

Those are NLP principles (Neurolinguistic Programming). NLP was created by studying outstanding therapists — psychotherapists who had exceptional success in treating patients. One of the most important people they studied was Milton Erickson, arguably the most successful therapist of all time. They noticed his point of view on "client resistance" was completely the opposite from that of less successful therapists.

The standard way of thinking about resistance in therapy is that it is the client's problem and the client needs to get over it before therapy can proceed. Erickson's point of view was that resistance was an indication that
he, Milton Erickson, was being inept.

That's the way
we need to think about it. If we did, we could reach a whole new level of skill at influencing people.

You may not want to learn this. It may bother you that people don't just "get it" when you say it straight. But this is how the world is. I know it's not "right." I know people should decide simply based on the facts, but that's not how the world works, and it never will be. Emotions have a
strong influence on decisions, on the forming of beliefs, and on behavior.

You already know this. You know that someone with a less-than-cogent argument can have more influence on people (if he gains rapport) than someone with a perfect argument that irritates people with his pompous or arrogant attitude, for example. Emotions trump facts. Rapport is the key.

We need to win. That means
you, who already understand the terrifying brilliance of Islam, need to be effective. You need to use all the skillful means at your disposal to change the way others think and feel about Islam. You can do it! You must do it, for all our sakes.

If you don't have time to become good at influencing, you should switch your focus to getting people involved in the Girl Effect. It will be much less difficult, but you will still be doing necessary work toward our ultimate goal of reversing Islam's relentless encroachment on the free world.

Bill Gates Tells The Truth In Saudi Arabia

Monday

I HAVE BEEN reading The Women's Crusade in the New York Times, and came across the following passage and I knew I had to share it with you.

Bill Gates recalls once being invited to speak in Saudi Arabia and finding himself facing a segregated audience. Four-fifths of the listeners were men, on the left. The remaining one-fifth were women, all covered in black cloaks and veils, on the right. A partition separated the two groups. Toward the end, in the question-and-answer session, a member of the audience noted that Saudi Arabia aimed to be one of the Top 10 countries in the world in technology by 2010 and asked if that was realistic. “Well, if you’re not fully utilizing half the talent in the country,” Gates said, “you’re not going to get too close to the Top 10.” The small group on the right erupted in wild cheering.

Bill Gates just went up a few notches in my esteem. The article I've quoted here was written by Sheryl WuDunn and Nicholas D. Kristof, the authors of
Half the Sky and the creators of the Girl Effect. I urge you to throw yourself into helping girls around the world. Go to the Girl Effect website and get involved. Recruit your friends and family into the cause. This is a purpose we can all get behind. Join the Girl Effect on FaceBook to get updates.

Conversation Pieces

Tuesday

WHEN YOU ARE sharing what you know about Islam's relentless encroachment on the free world, it often helps to have something compelling to share. Below are two shareable items to use in your campaign to influence your friends and family.

The first was sent to me by a friend in Hawaii, entitled "Terrorism That's Personal." It is a set of 12 professional photographs of Muslim women who have been horribly scarred by acid thrown on their face. The damage done to these women is terrible to see. Shocking.


Nicholas Kristof, one of the creators of the
Girl Effect and a New York Times op-ed columnist, traveled to Pakistan last year. He wrote: "I’ve been investigating such acid attacks, which are commonly used to terrorize and subjugate women and girls in a swath of Asia from Afghanistan through Cambodia (men are almost never attacked with acid). Because women usually don’t matter in this part of the world, their attackers are rarely prosecuted and acid sales are usually not controlled. It’s a kind of terrorism that becomes accepted as part of the background noise in the region."

If you have have the stomach for it, view the pictures
here. And share them with people you know. But when you do, make sure you give them some practical actions they can take to do something about it. Whenever you horrify someone, give them something they can do about it. It is unkind to do otherwise. With that in mind, here are the photographs: 12 Images.

If those images don't motivate someone to want to stop the atrocities, I don't know what will. I also recommend you read and share Nicholas Kristof's original article (and video):
Terrorism That's Personal.

The second item I want to share with you is from one of my favorite columnists, Phyllis Chesler. In a recent article, she wrote:

The other day, a twenty-year-old woman was sold at an open auction in Badani Bhutto, Pakistan. Her brothers divided up the money. No one condemned this shameless and abominable act.

It is an act that haunts me.

For a long time now, similar kinds of people (yes, mainly Muslims) have invaded — no, immigrated to — Europe, where they have continued to engage in polygamy, arranged child marriage, forced veiling of women, honor-related violence, including honor murders (17,000 honor-related crimes of violence have been estimated to occur annually in the UK alone), and female genital mutilation. According to my new (and about to be published) study, honor murders in Europe are especially savage — even more so than in developing Muslim countries.

You can read the rest of her article here:
Battling Against the Islamification of the World.

These two shareable items demonstrate the need to give women and girls human rights in Islamic countries. The situation is urgent, and anyone with normal human feelings will immediately know something needs to be done.


If you're talking to a friend who doesn't want to hear about Islam, simply direct them to the Girl Effect or share with them the book, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Your friend's efforts to empower women and protect girls will help curb Islam's ultimate goal, and it will be effective even if your friend never learns a thing about Islam.

Read more about how to influence your friends: Think Small Bits and Long Campaigns.

At the back of
Half the Sky is a short section called Four Steps You Can Take in the Next Ten Minutes that has practical things you can do right now to help empower women. It has been reproduced online here: Four Steps.

Action Alert: Support Geert Wilders

GEERT WILDERS' trial is two weeks away (it is scheduled to take place January 20, 2010). Geert is on trial in Amsterdam for "inciting hatred against Islam." This is our final opportunity to give him our support. (For more information about Geert's trial, read an Update on Geert Wilders, watch an Interview With Geert Wilders, or read this article on what Wilders is charged with and why.)

The international organization, SITA Action, wrote the following about the upcoming trial: The international establishment, subverted by a variety of Islamic organizations including the OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) will undoubtedly apply a great deal of pressure on the Dutch establishment to ensure that Geert Wilders is convicted on the charges that have been cunningly brought against him. It is likely that his party will win the next election in 2011 with the possibility of Mr Wilders becoming Prime Minister. The global establishment (especially the influencial Islamic element) does not want Mr Wilders in such a position of influence, even if the people of the Netherlands do.

An SITA action in support of Geert Wilders was established in late January 2009. It has received wide support and generated hundreds of letters designed to educate and inform decision makers in the Netherlands. The Dutch Ministery of Justice even visited our SITA websites: http://tinyurl.com/agl2kn.

SITA action is now reactivated to highlight this apparently politically-motivated prosecution. If Geert Wilders falls, freedom of speech is dead in Europe.

There are three ways that you can participate:

1) By mail – two possible texts; one comparing Wilders to Winston Churchill and another comparing him to Charlie Chaplin (follow either link, and you will find instructions about what to print and put into the envelopes and who to send them to).

2) By putting a message in comments to articles talking about the trial of Geert Wilders in blogs. This message appears at the bottom of this page http://tinyurl.com/yauuelo in 4 languages: FR, ENG, SP, D. So in other words, search Google for "Geert Wilders" and add those pre-written statements into the comments on the blogs you find (or add your own comments).

To support Geert Wilders and our dearly acquired freedoms, please participate in the two suggested actions, and share this message with your friends, especially those who have websites or blogs so they can help spread the word.

3) By giving some money. To donate: http://www.geertwilders.nl.

Take action right away for the greatest impact. Geert needs our help, and he deserves it.
