Why Orthodox Muslims Like to Blow People Up

Friday

The more orthodox the Muslim — that is, the more devout, the more committed to the teachings of the Koran and Hadith and the example of Muhammad — the more motivated the Muslim will be to kill non-Muslims. Why?

There are several reasons. The selfish one is because it's the only way to guarantee passage to Paradise. A Muslim can be devout, pray five times a day, make the pilgrimage to Mecca, etc., and still have to face judgment (with a chance of not making it to Paradise). But if he or she dies while killing non-Muslims, there is no judgment. The Muslim who dies in jihad goes straight to Paradise.

Another (less selfish) reason is that any Muslim who dies in jihad gets to intercede with Allah on behalf of seventy of his relatives. That's a big motivation for a would-be Muslim martyr. He will be able to help his mother, father, brothers, cousins, etc., get into Paradise. This also at least partly explains the assistance jihadis get from their less-courageous relatives.

The goal of orthodox Islam is to bring the whole world under the rule of the law of Allah, by peaceful means if possible, but by war if necessary. The Islamic system of law is so abhorrent to anyone not raised with it, it has become clear down through the centuries that war is necessary for the goal to be accomplished.

By blowing up non-Muslim civilians, the jihadi has created a double-bind. It is a no-lose situation for an orthodox Muslim — some non-Muslims were killed and that's a good thing, and if the jihadi dies doing it, that's fine too. If the non-Muslims don't do anything in response, it will encourage other Muslims to become jihadis because no consequences followed. If the non-Muslims make a strong response, at least some other Muslims will see this as "war against Islam" and will take up arms to join their brothers in the fight.

With all this in its favor, why not blow people up?

Losing Our Sons, the Film

The following was written by Bill Warner, Director of the Center for the Study of Political Islam. We couldn't agree more with him about the DVD, Losing Our Sons.

the fathers of the sons
There is a marvelous film — a true story about real people that can awaken our friends and neighbors to the reality we all face in a most dramatic, convincing way. It's an excellent teaching tool.

Losing Our Sons is a personal story of two fathers: Melvin Bledsoe is a small business owner from Memphis, Tennessee, whose son, Carlos, converted to Islam and murdered US Army Recruiter Andy Long in Little Rock in 2009. Daris Long, a retired Marine from Conway, Arkansas, is Andy's father. Both fathers, as you can see from the two minute trailer, are extraordinarily powerful, eloquent men.

Take a look at the trailer at www.losingoursons.com and then consider buying the film. This is a good, quick and effective way to convince Americans that we indeed have a problem in this country that urgently needs to be addressed.

Here's what the experts say about Losing Our Sons:

"Riveting, powerful, educational and a must see for every American"
BRIGITTE GABRIEL, Founder President of ACT! For America

"The film stands as a warning to Americans about the consequences of a failing civic leadership."
DANIEL PIPES, Founder and director of the Middle East Forum

"A must watch for Washington policy makers, too many of whom refuse to acknowledge the obvious threats"
FRANK J. GAFFNEY, JR. Reagan Pentagon official, President, Center for Security Policy

"A wrenching wake-up call."
ANDREW C. MCCARTHY, Former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York

Losing Our Sons was produced by Americans for Peace and Tolerance, a Boston-based organization that exposes Islamic extremists across the country and empowers local citizens to fight radical Islam in their own communities.

One of the most unusual articles on CitizenWarrior.com is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
