Eight Years On And We Have Learned Nothing

In one sense, there is no need for me to have to tell you what today means.

But in another sense, the situation as it prevails today is in urgent need of addressing, for it is a situation that should not be.

It is now eight years since Islamic jihadists, explicitly in the name of Islam, committed the mass murdering atrocities that would come to be collectively known as "9/11". One would have thought that those events, and subsequent events piled on top, would have opened Western leaders' eyes - and those of lay people - to the threat of a rapidly expanding movement that aims to subjugate the entire world under its totalitarian rule...and will wreak all kinds of havoc - much of it deadly - in the process if it has to. One would think that eight years on, our determination to fight, to defend ourselves, would be stronger than ever.

But it is not. Instead, the leaders and their people have chosen to close their eyes and go back to sleep, for comforting illusions are preferable to hard realities.

The cost of this laziness, this cowardice, could be astronomical.

Consider the following.

The British government has so far given £48,000 to the Muslim Brotherhood for the purpose of helping it "prevent extremism" in the Muslim community. And who is the Muslim Brotherhood? Why, it just so happens to be the original Islamic terror organisation, founded in 1928, from which most similar groups, such as Hamas, have sprung. Hasan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, openly avowed that he wanted to see Islam take over the world, and also wrote that "Jihad is an obligation from Allah on every Muslim and cannot be ignored nor evaded. Allah has ascribed great importance to jihad and has made the reward of the martyrs and the fighters in His way a splendid one."

The Muslim Brotherhood is also engaged in a plot to undertake, in its own words, "a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions."

With this knowledge foremost in our minds, why is our government giving this group money?

The situation in the US is no better. Over there, the FBI is actively working with a number of groups who are directly associated with the Brotherhood, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and allowing such groups dangerous access to the White House and the intelligence services.

A recent poll in the US found that the number of Americans who believe that Islamic doctrine encourages violence against unbelievers (a fact that is beyond dispute to any objective observer) has dropped, meaning that Americans are failing to understand the core ideology driving those who have declared war upon them and are intent on eradicating their entire way of life, which is based on Western principles of democracy, human rights, individual freedom and equality...principles that would be overturned by Islam should it ever establish dominion in that land.

And meanwhile - and most tellingly - a new survey gauging Muslim attitudes indicates that backing for suicide bombings against civilians, while generally down from earlier years, remains significant in some Islamic countries – challenging the assertion that Muslims supporting terrorism constitute a “tiny minority”.

And that's what it boils down to. Islamic doctrine and law unequivocally teaches that it is the duty of the Muslim community to compel unbelieving nations to adopt Islamic law, at the point of the sword if necessary. While most Muslims do not heed these teachings, they nevertheless have a substantial level of support among Muslim communities worldwide. Checking the news every day will expose the increasing body count that Islam is accumulating. As the counter in the top-right corner of this blog attests, we have now exceeded 14,000 Islamic terror attacks around the world in just the last eight years.

Islamic jihadists - who wield substantial numbers and support, as well as religious orthodoxy behind them - have declared war on Western civilsation. Eight years on from 9/11, that declaration must not go unheeded.

Please, never forget.
