How to Stop the Modern Rise of Islamic Fundamentalism


War requires money. The rise of Islamic fundamentalism is being funded by OPEC oil money — the Muslim Brotherhood is funded by Saudi oil money, the Muslim Students Association is funded by Saudi oil money, the Taliban is funded by Saudi oil money, the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) is funded by Saudi oil money, etc.

The members of the worldwide army of Islamic fundamentalists are able to work full time advancing the orthodox Islamic agenda while you and I have to go to work and can only defend ourselves part time. Their bills are paid by Saudi oil money, so they can devote themselves to it and they have all the resources they need to push it forward.

Saudi Arabia is the most influential member of OPEC, and OPEC keeps raising the world price of oil, reaping the Saudi princes' excessive profits. Saudi Arabia produces more oil per year than any other country.

And they're using their oil revenue to help Islamic fundamentalism take over the Muslim institutions of the world. With less than two percent of the Muslim population, the Saudis own or control ninety percent of all Islamic institutions of the world. The Saudis are Wahhabis, which is an Islamic "back to the texts" movement. They are believers in the terrifying brilliance of Islamic texts and are working to make the principles universal. They intend to achieve the Islamic texts' prime directive — the spread of Islam to every corner of the earth by any means necessary.

The Saudi Wahhabis are building or taking over mosques all over the world. They do it with oil money. And they've built an estimated 20,000 madrassas worldwide with oil money — schools that teach Muslim boys only Islamic fundamentalism.


War is expensive. The first two jihads were paid for with jizya since most of the conquered lands were occupied by Jews and Christians, many of whom did not give up their religion and paid the jizya tax instead.

When that source of money dried up (as the Jews and Christians were killed, converted or fled), Islam went into a kind of dormancy because jihad requires money and backward Islamic countries didn't have much money.

With the creation of OPEC, we have seen an escalating increase in Islamic jihad around the world. Saudi Arabia saw their income climb dramatically as oil prices have risen since OPEC first flexed its power in the 1973 oil embargo. Nine of the twelve OPEC nations are Islamic, including Iran, which has the money to pursue nuclear weapons and plenty left over to support insurgencies in Syria, Palestine, and Iraq.

The free world is being infiltrated and attacked in many different ways: Textbooks, campus influence, dismantling free speech, building mosques and madrassas, printing and distributing fundamentalist literature, influencing the media, sleeper cells, lobbyists in Washington, DC (Saudi Arabia has 100 lobbyists), the OIC's influence over the United Nations, and the list goes on and on.

This is all being paid for with oil money.

Obviously, we need to do something about this. We need to curtail the flow of money to OPEC countries. Drilling more oil in our own countries cannot solve it. Using less oil can't solve it either (for the same reason: OPEC responds by reducing its output and thus raising the world price of oil). Something much bigger and bolder is needed.

We need to strip oil of its strategic status.

Orthodox Muslims may be spending more money on this war than we are, but many times in history a weaker force defeated a stronger force by concentrating its forces at the decisive point. There are many places to concentrate our forces, many places orthodox Islam is infiltrating and undermining. But there is only one decisive point; only one place that can cause the rest to collapse: Oil money.

Oil's strategic status is held in place by its monopoly on transportation fuel. Its singular status as the most important commodity on earth could be lost if the fuel market gained real competition. And the only way to do that is to make the cars themselves capable of burning multiple fuels, which fortunately is easy to do from an engineering standpoint. In fact, according to Robert Zubrin, it doesn't require any more engineering at all; the cars are already capable. They only need the fuels to be legalized as fuel (in the case of methanol), which the Fuel Freedom Foundation is working on. Or the cars need to be warranted to burn those fuels.

What we can do as citizen warriors is what we do best — educate our fellow citizens of the vital necessity and urgency of this goal: To create a condition where fuels can compete with each other in an open market. When that happens, it will force oil prices down to compete, cutting off money to OPEC and drying up the power behind the third jihad.

Of the many negative thins about Islam one of them may be that it is defined as a religious /political mind control system. In the light of this , Thomas Jefferson had it right when he stated "I have sworn upon the alter of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

This may be the number one way is via OPEC but in my country, Islam is a minority but yet 90% of our products meat and non meat products all bear the HALAAL sign - this means everyone who purchases these products - a certain portion goes towards funding something (Islam, Jihad; I don't really know what it funds...)

Anonymous 8:51 AM  

Just wanted to say that the selling of hala meat does not in any way fund Islamic Jihad. I am a Muslim, and I love Islam with a passion but I do not agree with mind controlling and hurting innocent people. The Prophet Muhammad also did not like to hurt people and was very gentle with people who were not Muslim. It's just a shame that nowaday extrememists like to do as they please by killing whomsoever they find appropriate but this is wrong.

To be honest, people need to research authentic texts/sources about Islam to really understand what the Religion is. I can assure you all that it is really about love and peace... some people however interpret 'Jihad' wrong as the real meaning means to struggle.

It is quite understandable that one defend him/herself when in danger or when being assulted but it is wrong to hurt people or force onto them something which they may not want..

Islam does not want to be forced onto people, it is up to the people themselves to choose what to believe or not to believe.

This is my answer for you:

To our Muslim friend. Sir, what I know to be islam is what I am seeing here, now, today.... and for the past 3 decades. I see a leadership who is silent on Islamoterrorism and hass taken no active roll in combating it except to mailtain their own power as leaders. I see a population of Muslims who are silent on Islamoterrorism and who have never taken to the streets to protest it's activity. In fact took to the streets to cheer the destruction of the Trade Towers in New Your. Across Islam I see the abuse, disrespect and mistreatment of women. I see Muslim demands for Islamic law to be used in place of common law in Western country's Muslims emigrate to. I see them ban the practice of Cristianity and Judism in any country they control and turn a blind eye to the killings of those not Muslim. I can only believe, therefore, that calling Islam a religion of Peace is a lie. And that, at some point, there will be a war between Islam and the rest of the world.

I think what needs to be remembered is that most of the information we get here is from western sources. For example, in a previous comment someone said

'In fact took to the streets to cheer the destruction of the Trade Towers in New York'

This was a deliberate attempt for the media to get people to support the war on terror. If you do some reading the majority of Muslims condemned the 9/11 attacks, and the majority of other attacks that have been carried out by fundamentalists. Only a minority of Muslims cheered the attacks.

The vast majority of Muslims are not fundamentalists and lead fairly regular lives. The western media, however, would have you think otherwise as their goal is to portray Islam as an unfriendly political opposition.

I am not saying Islam is an ideal religion, in my mind there is no ideal religion as in most you can see oppression and violence in some form. However, I think the stigmatisation of Muslims because of fundamentalist attacks and stereotypical headlines have probably made things worse.

STOP ISLAM IN ITS TRACKS, UNLESS OF COURSE, YOU DESIRE THAT CULTURE AND LIFESTYLE. IT'S OPPRESSIVE, DECEITFUL, HYPOCRITICAL AND ABOVE ALL THE MOTHER OF ALL LIES. Moreover, their favorite pass-time is laughing their ________ off at stupid Americans who don't know this. Sadly, those Americans that DO know the truth about it are unable to separate themselves from the ignorant majority. We all crash and burn with this one folks.

Born as a Muslim, I am a British citizen. Muslims worldwide are in turmoil. My book, 'Secrets of Qur'an, Jesus is divine & rose from the dead,' available at is based upon the interpretations of the Qur'an and also provides information from the Bible as one third of the Qur'an is about the Bible. This can help Christians and Muslims alike to respect women and race to love and respect the whole of mankind, which is the essence of Jesus' teachings. In a nutshell, in the light of the Qur'an, my book goes to prove that, Jesus Christ is the only solution for Muslims worldwide turmoil. Thanks.

I will read your book.

From my research it seems that ISIS is the purist form of islam. That to me means that islam is a bad religion.

Mohamed was rejected as a prophet by the Jews because he did not perform any miracles.

This made mohamed angry and how could they think he was a prophet when they believed that their prophet had produced several miracles.

His loss of face, anger and damaged pride resonates around the world today and will cause much more

I think all religions just seem to cause misery. When we were young as a race we needed religion to look after us, but have we not grown up now? Religion makes us the 27 year old that is sleeping in his mother's sofa!

We have science now, we now know how it all happened.

Faith, however is different. The meaning of faith is to believe in something regardless. But if that faith commits acts that hurt others, that person needs to be taken away from the public for their safety.

You have been conditioned into this evil religion. As a human I beg you to leave it behind. We love you as a person

I am a muslim and science does not have everything fully explained, far from it actually. We needed religion back then? Their is eternal heaven and hell so the choice of following or rejecting islam is the people's choice.
Science at the moment says that basically the big bang and hence the earth and the other planets came from nothing!? That makes no sense and is very backward thing whereas Islam says that their is one God originator of the heavens and the earth and all that is in between!. Their are also a lot of anti Islamic lies about this religion but the truth of islam is that is has proof to be the truth. This you will find through sincere seeking of the truth.
So let me make this clear one god is fact and the only religion acceptable to God is Islam and there are many proofs for this religion. Whoever would like eternal paradise after they die follow Allah and the last and final messenger peace and blessings be upon him, however as for those who reject Allah and his messengers peace and blessings be upon them for those there is the eternal hellfire.

Also people talk about Islam being very bad brainwashing when in actual fact it is the truth so how can it be brainwashing? However all of the lies about Islam that are prevalent all over the world almost (especially the west) is mass brainwashing, brainwashing to the eternal hellfire it could be argues.

Honestly, I believe that god exists but not in any form or object, but in the form of light, who always and will love us. I believe he gave us free will to do whatever we want and experiences things. Seeing islams as the way it is now is really sad, my friend once told me that islam is meant for peace and now seeing my friend trying to aggressively enforce his islam teachings on me is really heartbreaking, saying that islam is the one true religion when really there's none. Afterall, religion is created by us and not god itself.

We live our lives the way we want, we can make it a living hell if we want to, and we can make it heaven if we want to. Afterall it is our choice to make either hell or heaven onto others and ourselves.

I believe that we are here to learn and experience and if we ever die we will then re-experience our lives in third person before merging with our god, the light once again, and seeing what our choices have effected the people around us, good or bad, selfish or selfless, evil or benevolent. If you think about it, seeing your choices hurting your fellow humans, wouldn't that be hell? But if we were to see our choices having a positive effect on the people around us, won't we feel happy for them as well? Free Will is what makes us free, but believing god dictating what happens and not is just limiting your life, because you believe there's a god controlling you and if you do then you would believe that you're not worthy to travel, to receive better jobs, to receive love and praise, to love others, to help others. IF god is controlling what you do... Then how will you ever love yourself? You're not doing anything to improve your life or the life of others. Is this really what god or you, your soul wanted? I do not believe such a thing as god dictating us but allowed us to do what we want, if you don't want to do something or want to do something then prepare to face consequences or fulfillment, isn't that what free will is?

If it helps you remember, you are loved and always will be, you just have to listen. So please see the light and remember
