2021: THE UNITED SHARIAH STATES OF AMERICA

Exclusive: Andrew Thorp King looks ahead to when caliphate is ‘world’s lone superpower’

A note from the year 2021:

The Jordanian journalist Fouad Hussein warned us. Spelled it all out, albeit it in Arabic, for us all to read. Told us all that this was the plan. Back in 2005 he penned the warning shot in his book “Al-Zarqawi: The Second Generation of Al Qaeda.”

What exactly did he warn about?

That damn 20-year plan.

The evil, ambitious, prescient plan that led us to where we are now, here in 2021, where ISIS has Islamized America.

Where Christians, Jews, homosexuals, atheists, and moderate Muslims have been choked out of their right to conscience.

Where the sight of a beautiful woman’s hair is a faded, distant memory now covered by a hijab in perpetuity.

Where the surviving remnant of yesterday’s Western elite now cower in submissive fear to their newfound Islamic power brokers.

Where rock ‘n’ roll, as AC/DC once deeply protested was patently untrue, has now been outlawed and legally deemed noise pollution.

The 20-year plan has unfolded with terrifying precision in accordance with its blueprint.

Phase 1 (2000-2003): Poke, irritate and provoke the West. USS Cole. 9/11. DONE.

Phase 2 (2003-2006): Normalize apocalyptic Islamism throughout the Muslim world. Establish Iraq as a centerpiece of operations for jihad. Create an army there. Establish contingent bases firmly placed in other Arabic states. DONE.

Phase 3 (2007-2010): Expand the fight and target those with secular governments averse to Islamism. Hyper-focus on Syria. But also Jordan, Turkey and, of course, Israel, the little Satan. DONE.

Phase 4 (2010-2013): Dismantle the infidel regimes of the Middle East through popular revolts and revolution. Stoke the flames of insurgencies. The Arab Spring. Egypt, Bahrain, Syria, Libya, Yemen. Continue cyber-attacks on the U.S. Intensify the cyber propaganda campaigns.DONE.

Phase 5 (2013-2016): Formally declare an established caliphate. The one that the Western media mocked any commentator for warning about. Exploit the weak Western will and re-create the first caliphate in nine decades. This is the first step in creating the Islamic New World Order in which a clear divide exists between a united Muslim community of believers (dar al-Islam) and the unbelievers (dar al-harb), or house of war. ISIS, ISIL, IS. Whatever the iteration, it has now been placed firmly on the to-done list. DONE.

Phase 6 (2016-2019): Move toward total confrontation. Use the caliphate as a catalyst for a focused instigation of the West. Through continued attacks, force the West to muster their last long-drawn effort to attempt to confront the inevitable growth of the caliphate. Orlando. Paris. Brussels. Nice. DONE.

Phase 7 (2020): Push through into definitive victory. The caliphate crosses the line into victory over the West. The West’s effort to use supreme technology to defeat the caliphate is impotent as the nimbleness of jihad proved to be more of an asset than the West’s supreme technological power. The caliphate attracts more followers exponentially, leaving it as the world’s lone remaining superpower with the strength of 1.5 billion Muslims. Borderless and asymmetrical as hell. DONE.

Today is Thursday. The last one in September. The autumn leaves are as beautiful as they ever were this time of year, except for the light, consistent layer of soft ash that floats down on them periodically throughout the day. The ash that comes from the incinerator just down the street. Thursdays are their biggest production day. Wednesdays are drop-off days for that week’s collection activity, so Thursday is when most of the burning happens. Hence, more ash. I escaped the incinerator by pledging my life to Islam. A coward I am. Those who are brave, the collected ones – all the infidels – Christians, homosexuals, atheists and especially the Jews, they get the fire. Some days I wish I chose to be with them.

Instead, I sit and wonder what would have happened if we got wise to their 20-year plan back in 2016. Back when it was already clear they were right on track with the first five phases. Or if we paid more attention to the implications of the poll taken of Muslims living in the U.S. back in 2015 that showed that 51 percent embraced Shariah over the U.S. Constitution. Could we have hedged the remaining two phases if we knew better? I doubt it. But only God knows.

God knows the West did very little to push back the creeping of this now dominant, ubiquitous Shariah. The civilization jihadists pushed for their own sub-legal system in Texas, just like in Londonistan. And we eventually gave in. No political will. Only political correctness.

We essentially rolled over as the Muslim Brotherhood methodically infiltrated our power structures and government entities for years with an underlying intent to wage civilization jihad on us in a slow, deliberate, calculated fashion. The Western frog lying cluelessly in the hot boiling water of increasing Islamism.

So, here I sit, a slave in the United Shariah States of America. I’ve lost all integrity by submitting to the faith of my captors, and yet still I am their slave. I’ve escaped death but still lost life by turning my soul away from my own faith and devotion to my country.

I never saw this coming. The West never saw this coming. The stinging memory of Nazism did nothing to help us perceive this new, similar threat. A threat directly connected to and inspired by the ideology and strategies of Nazism. But it was all right there. All in the plan.

The U.S. Opens the Doors to its own Modern-Day Trojan Horse

As another watch on the Islamic stealth movements we are seeing happen, WND  posted this article on June 25, 2016.

The Obama administration has announced its appointment of 13 White House fellows – and the first person featured on its short list is a Muslim attorney who specializes in Shariah-compliant transactions….

White House fellows spend a year as full-time, paid assistants to senior White House staff, the vice president, Cabinet secretaries and senior administration officials.

Samar Ali

Samar Ali of Waverly, Tenn., is the first name appearing on the White House list. She is an associate with the law firm Hogan Lovells – a firm that claims to have advised on more than 200 Islamic finance transactions with an aggregate deal value in excess of $40 billion.

According to Ali’s biography posted on the White House website, “She is responsible for counseling clients on mergers & acquisitions, cross-border transactions, Shariah-compliant transactions, project finance and international business matters. During her time with Hogan Lovells, she has been a founding member of the firm’s Abu Dhabi office.”

Hogan Lovells lists Ali’s experience “advising a Middle Eastern university in the potential establishment of a Foreign Aid Conventional and Shariah Compliant Student Loan Program and advising a Middle Eastern client in relation to a U.S. government subcontract matter.”

“Our team members are at the forefront of developments in the Islamic finance industry,” Hogan Lovells boasts. “We help set standards for the sector. We have also advised on numerous first-of-their-kind transactions, such as the first convertible Sukuk, the first equity-linked Sukuk, the first Shariah-compliant securitization, the first international Sukuk al-mudaraba and Sukuk al-musharaka, the first Sukuk buyback and the first Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency guaranteed Islamic project financing.”

Ali also clerked for Judge Gilbert S. Merritt of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and Judge Edwin Cameron, now of the Constitutional Court of South Africa.

Promoting Islam and Shariah

The White House notes that Ali also led the YMCA Israeli-Palestinian Modern Voices for Progress Program and is a founding member of the first U.S. Delegation to the World Islamic Economic Forum. Ali was listed as a member of the British delegation to the World Islamic Economic Forum in 2009 and as a U.S. delegate in 2010.

Shariah Finance Watch blog noted, “[I]t was at the World Islamic Economic Forum where key leaders declared Shariah finance to be “dawa” (missionary) activity to promote Islam and Shariah.”sfw_logo

In fact, the president of Indonesia, H. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, delivered a March 2, 2009, keynote address to Islamic leaders at the World Islamic Economic Forum in Jakarta during which he called for Islamic banks to do “missionary work in the Western world.”

“Islamic banking should now be able to take a leadership position in the banking world,” he said. “Islamic banks have been much less affected by the financial meltdown than the conventional banks – for the obvious reason that Shariah banks do not indulge in investing in toxic assets and in leveraged funds. They are geared to supporting the real economy.”

He added, “Islamic bankers should therefore do some missionary work in the Western world to promote the concept of Shariah banking, for which many in the West are more than ready now.” […]

In his July 2008 essay, “Financial Jihad: What Americans Need to Know,” Vice President Christopher Holton of the Center for Security Policy wrote, “America is losing the financial war on terror because Wall Street is embracing a subversive enemy ideology on one hand and providing corporate life support to state sponsors of terrorism on the other hand.”

Holton referred to Islamic finance, or “Shariah-Compliant Finance”, as a “modern-day Trojan horse” infiltrating the U.S. He said it poses a threat to the U.S. because it seeks to legitimize Shariah – a man-made medieval doctrine that regulates every aspect of life for Muslims – and could ultimately change American life and laws….

Bill Clinton, Dubai, millions, jihad – shocking connections

Former President Bill Clinton collected $5.6 million in fees from GEMS Education, a Dubai-based company that teaches Sharia Law through its network of more than 100 schools in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.

The company’s finances strictly adhere to “Sharia Finance,” which includes giving “zakat,” a religious tax of which one-eighth of the proceeds is dedicated to funding Islamic jihad.

The company also contributed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.ns97o-mo

The former president served as honorary chairman for GEMS Education from 2011 to 2014, according to federal tax returns he filed with his wife, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

His biggest paycheck from the closely-held company — which is incorporated in the Cayman Islands — was in 2014 when he pocketed $2.1 million. It is unclear if Bill received income from the Middle Eastern firm in 2015, since Hillary has not yet released her tax return for that year.

Sharia law is the Islamic religious legal system that many in the West see as intolerant of human rights and other religions, as well as violating the rights of women and gays. Sharia law is considered by Muslims to be superior to all secular authorities. Islamic jihadis regularly call for the imposition of Sharia law and want to impose it on the West.

GEMS boasted in a 2013 bond prospectus that it is the “only foreign group approved for educational services in Saudi Arabia.” The GEMS facilities in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, taught 1,600 students in 2013.

Saudi Arabia is where Wahabism, the strictest form of Sharia, is observed. The Middle Eastern kingdom bars women from driving cars, requires women to wear the strictest form of the hijab, which covers everything but the eyes and hands. Gay men and women are persecuted in Saudi Arabia.

GEMS distributed a job notice in 2014 for a director of “Islamic and Cultural Studies” for its campuses in the Saudi Kingdom. The skills for the position included proficiency in Sharia to help develop a curriculum. The company also acts as an educational consultant in Egypt, Jordan, and Libya.

Clinton’s relationship with the Sharia-oriented education firm drew critical reviews from anti-terrorism experts.

“Why would Bill Clinton be participating in programs that teach Sharia in foreign countries where that is the specific objective of the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS and al-Qaeda,” asked counter-terror analyst Stephen Coughlin in an interview with TheDCNF.

GEMS is one of the most dominant educational programs in the Middle East, with 51 separate schools operating in the region. Globally, the for-profit company claims that 250,000 students are learning under its program in 170 countries.

Outside of the Middle East and North Africa, GEMS operates schools in Kenya, Uganda, Southeast Asia, and the United Kingdom.

GEMS even has two “international” schools in Chicago.

At the GEMS Jumeirah Primary School in Abu Dhabi, the website promotes Islam as a central tenet of its curriculum. “Our aim is teach all Muslim students the pillars of Islam, Islamic faith and morals, enabling them to efficiently apply them to their lives. To increase the knowledge of Islam we share with the children, the stories of prophets, manners of living a Muslim’s life, the five pillars of Islam.”

The Dubai firm has donated between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to the foundation website. GEMS was an official sponsor of the 2013 and 2014 Clinton Global Initiative. Its Indian-born CEO Sunny Varkey attended both years.

And the Varkey Foundation, named after the CEO, contributed $250,000 to $500,000 to the foundation.Varkey GF logo

Varkey publicly claimed Bill was the “honorary chairman” of his foundation. But Bill and Hillary report in their joint federal tax returns the annual payments came from the for-profit GEMS Education company.

The company has raised funds through bonds and has openly broadcast its commitment to Sharia finance. In 2013, the company issued a $200 million bond prospectus and assured potential investors it relied on “Fatwa and Sharia” advisers to assure it was “compliant” with Sharia finance.

Coughlin said Sharia law on finance also includes money for “zakat,” a religious tax. “And if you read the law of zakat, one-eighth of that money goes to fund Jihad,” he says. “There are eight categories of zakat you must pay every year. And one of them is Jihad.”

Two of the banks — Emirates NB and Noor Bank — provided critical loans to GEMS in August, 2015, and were also accused of conducting illicit banking deals with Iran.

In a June 9, 2009, diplomatic cable made public by WikiLeaks, U.S. Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates Richard G. Olson slammed one of the lenders, Emirates NB Bank.
Olson told the Department of State that Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Stuart Levey “pointed out that Dubai-based Emirates NBD appears to remain out-of-step with other major international financial with respect to its sizable Iranian exposure.”

Olson reported the Emirates NBD Chairman “Ahmuae-69819ed al Tayer erratically dismissed Under Secretary Levey’s concerns about doing business for Iran with a mix of hostility, remorse and assurances of submission.”

Noor Bank, another bank which provided GEMS with financing, helped Iran process foreign currency receipts. MarketWatch reported that in 2012 “Dubai’s Noor Islamic Bank had been a primary conduit for returning foreign-currency oil receipts to Iran.”
GEMS is owned exclusively by billionaire Varkey and his family. Four of the five directors are Varkey family members.

The Varkey Group Ltd, the parent company of GEMS, and its shares are held “in a trust by a private trust company for the benefit of the members of the Varkey family,” according to the 2013 bond prospectus. Varkey’s net worth is estimated at $2.1 billion.

All of the Varkey group’s activities appear to be transacted by MaplesFS, the largest law firm in the Cayman Islands.

As stated by GEMS in its prospectus, “Under existing Cayman Islands laws will not be subject to taxation in the Cayman Islands.” It also tells potential investors, “The Cayman Islands currently have no income, corporation or capital gains tax and no estate duty, inheritance or gift tax.”

Bill has been a frequent visitor to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the trips often deal with money. As previously reported by TheDCNF, shortly after leaving the White House, Bill pocketed $15 million in an investment deal with the Dubai Investment Group that included as his business partner, the country’s authoritarian ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin-Rashid al-Marktoum.

Bill also collected $500,000 for a single speech he delivered in Abu Dhabi in 2011. He was paid by the UAE’s royal family. The United Arab Emirates is a monarchy where no elections are held and human rights abuses, especially of foreign laborers, are rampant.

TheDCNF contacted the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation about the GEMS Education relationship, but received no response.

TheDCNF also reached out to GEMS in Dubai but there was no reply by press time.

The Islam Infiltration: Illinois Law Spells Trouble

The Islam Infiltration: Illinois Law Spells Trouble

Americans, in huge majority numbers, understand that much of Islam is incompatible with our country’s norms and values. We may have varying opinions on just how incompatible, and we may all want American Muslims to enjoy the same religious rights as anyone else, but very few of us want Islam to begin influencing our laws.

Sadly, that’s exactly where we’re headed. Organizations like CAIR operate under the pretense of protecting Muslims from unfair persecution. They’ve earned a seat at the table by pretending to be full-throated supporters of the Constitution. They don’t want special rights for Muslims. They just want to represent the voices of the unheard. That’s all.

But that’s not all.

These organizations can all be traced back to their radical origins. And once you peer behind the curtain, you can see that they have goals that go well beyond discouraging people from using the term “radical Islamic terrorism.” Goals that go well beyond protecting the civil rights of Muslims. They want to change America’s laws, slowly but surely, to make them closer to the Sharia laws that govern Islamic countries like Iran.

In Illinois, they are closer to that goal than ever before. A new bill would create a permanent 21-member Muslim council whose purpose would be to “advise the governor and General Assembly on issues affecting Muslim Americans and immigrants.” It is a governor’s signature away from being state law.

“We need to encourage our Muslim Americans to be civically engaged and participate,” said Democrat Illinois Senator Jacqueline Collins. “If you don’t participate, the fringe elements establish the policy.”

So without this council, radical ISIS-sympathizers will determine the direction of the Illinois government? That doesn’t sound logical.

It would be more accurate to say that it is because of those fringe elements that Illinois is considering this council to begin with. In other words, they are rewarding bloodshed. Absent the terrorist attacks that have become so frequent, this bill would not exist. We like to say “violence is not the answer,” but initiatives like these tell a different story.

We keep church and state separate for a reason. Democrats, ironically, have been fiercely protective of that separation. To avoid the appearance of hypocrisy, they have begun blurring the line between race and religion. They want to turn Islam into an ethnicity. A specialty. A political party. Only by selling this bizarre lie can they give Muslims rights and privileges denied to Christians.

Obama may be right; ISIS may not represent an “existential threat” to the United States. But Islam – if allowed to influence our laws – does.

Nice Truck Attack Followed Big Money Transfer

Anything but jihad

Carol Brown            American Thinker              July 16, 2016

Did you know that a “truck attack” occurred in Nice, France, and that the driver had recently been convicted of “road rage”?  Apparently we are to believe that an angry guy got in his truck and took out his frustration on hordes of innocent people.  And while certain facts may be true (yes, the guy was angry, and yes, he drove a truck to commit his evil deed), they are not the underlying truth.  And it is this underlying truth the West is so desperate to avoid.

The underlying truth is that Islam is totalitarianism that mandates the destruction of all things not Islamic as written in the Quran, the Sunnah, and the Hadith.

That’s pretty much it.  It’s all you need to know.  From this basic premise of world domination, all else flows.  It explains the most heinous acts of violence perpetuated by Islamic terrorists, the most subtle form of creeping sharia that advances the caliphate by stealth means and everything in between.

Islam demands that Islam rule over everyone.  And for Islam to rule, non-believers are given three choices: (1) convert, (2) pay the jizya tax and live as second-class citizens, or (3) die.  This is how it’s been for nearly 1,500 years.  Yet it would appear that a 1,500-year history of darkness, death, and destruction in the name of Allah is not enough evidence for the West to grasp what drives the enemy we’re facing.

So desperate are we to avoid facing the awful truth that a seemingly endless stream of insane things are spewed out on a near daily basis to convince us that the truth is anything but what it is.  Case in point: our government asserting that recent terror attacks are a sign we are winning the war against ISIS.

(And as an aside, the war isn’t, or at least shouldn’t be, specifically against ISIS any more than their war against us is against people who live in certain ZIP codes.  ISIS, Hezb’allah, Hamas, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Muslim Brotherhood, and on and on all represent the same thing: Islam.)

We’re not winning the war against Islamic totalitarianism.  We’re losing.  Willfully, it seems.  Our commitment to losing cuts across a broad spectrum, from political elites to academics to the media.

As to the last group’s coverage of the terror attack in Nice, they could have reported on how ISIS and other Islamic terror organizations urge Muslims to use vehicles to kill, a reality Israelis have been coping with for a long time.  (Palestinians routinely run over Jews with cars while ISIS reminds them to “[r]emember that our war with the Jews is a war between belief and unbelief, so continue your battle and use all permissible means of fighting them – stab them, run them over with cars[.]”)

MEMRI further reported on the jihadist magazine, Inspire, and its detailed directions for how Muslims should use vehicles to maim and murder, excerpting from an article in the magazine titled “The Ultimate Mowing Machine”…

Illinois Opens Doors for Islamic Lawmakers

Bruce Rauner

From CBN News

The Illinois legislature has approved a bill that would give unelected Muslim-Americans a formal voice in state government. If the governor signs the bill, Illinois would be the first state to pass such a law. The measure creates a 21-member advisory council of Muslims to give them influence on state policy.

The governor and legislative leaders would appoint the Muslim council members.

The Chicago Tribune quotes one Islamic leader who’s pushing for the new body and says all governors in America should have an Islamic council.

“Given all that is going on with the misinterpretation about Islam and the interests and concerns of the Muslim-American community, it’s almost obligatory on behalf of a governor of this state and all governors to have such a body,” Chicago lawyer Kareem Irfan said.

Many are asking what they can do to help prevent this or stop this movement. There is a very influential grassroots organization that is taking action against such movements, both politically and locally in the areas of the chapters. See ActforAmerica.org .  As citizens, we have the ability and responsibility to stand up for our national freedoms and protect our American constitutional rights.There is still time, but we have to act now Americans. We can’t let our country or politics be taken over by the Muslims. If you give them an inch, they take a mile.

Another action that can be taken, especially if you live in Illinois, is to call your state and local representatives. Request that this new body DOES NOT let in an Islamic Council. They are not for our constitution, and if you’ve been tracking along, they want to turn our country into Saudi Arabia, so to speak. We will resist!

 

Too Poor for Jizya Causes Conversion

image

An elderly Christian man living in Raqqa, Syria, faced forced conversion to Islam as he can no longer afford to pay the minority or jizya tax, a penalty enforced by the Islamic State to minorities living under its jurisdiction.

In a video posted by the terror group’s Amaq news platform, a man identifying himself as Mostafa Abu Alzer recites the “Shahada,” the declaration required to enter the Islamic faith, while also stating that his conversion is of his own free will.

While the majority of Christians have fled Raqqa and other parts of Syria over the last three years, Abu Alzer remained behind to protect his home, opting at the time, to pay the minority tax, according to Syrian sources.

In an ironic twist of fate, the man appears to have been used as a poster boy for an ISIS film released last year, “Until there came to them clear evidence,” a video featuring church demolitions, executions and interviews with the ‘lucky’ Christians who have been able to afford the Jizya tax.

“We paid Jizya, the one who comes to Raqqa (after paying Jizya) does not have to worry, whether he is Christian or even Jewish,” Abu Alzer says, looking into the camera.

There are approximately 25 Christian families left in Raqqa today, who are forbidden from leaving, according to the group Raqqa Is Being Silently Slaughtered, comprised of former journalists turned activists.

Raqqa, now the de-facto Syrian headquarters of the Islamic State, fell into rebel control in March 2013 in a battle between insurgents led by the Islamist jihadi group Al Nusra and Bashar Al Assad’s regime. Raqqa then became the first provincial capital under rebel control in the war.

Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, thousands of Christians and other minorities have been forced from their homes both by Islamist rebels fighting Bashar Al Assad’s regime and Islamic State militants.

In areas controlled by ISIS, Christians have been given three options—to convert to Islam, to pay a minority tax or jizya or to face death.

The Foreign Desk exclusively reported on the kidnapping of hundreds of Christians in the Syrian province of Hassakeh in February 2015.

In 2014, ISIS published a list of seven restrictions that Christians in Raqqa had to follow in order to live under Caliphate rule.

In it, Christians were contractually obliged to pay the jizya, or minority tax, which in Islamic Sharia law is the amount of money paid by non-Muslims or “dhimmis” in exchange for protection.

The jizya was last enforced under the Ottoman Empire and since, only brought back by the Islamic State.

In addition, Christians living under ISIS are not permitted to build any new churches, religious facilities, nor are they allowed to repair existing ones, cannot publicly show any crosses, pray or recite the Bible in public, are prohibited from any acts of aggression against the Islamic State, are forbidden from stopping the conversion of any Christian to the religion of Islam and cannot sell pork products or alcohol to any Muslims nor consume these products, forbidden in Islam, in public.

Contraception equals more sex slaves to ISIS

From the New York Times.

DOHUK, Iraq — Locked inside a room where the only furniture was a bed, the 16-year-old learned to fear the sunset, because nightfall started the countdown to her next rape.

During the year she was held by the Islamic State, she spent her days dreading the smell of the ISIS fighter’s breath, the disgusting sounds he made and the pain he inflicted on her body. More than anything, she was tormented by the thought she might become pregnant with her rapist’s child.

It was the one thing she needn’t have worried about.

Soon after buying her, the fighter brought the teenage girl a round box containing four strips of pills, one of them colored red.

“Every day, I had to swallow one in front of him. He gave me one box per month. When I ran out, he replaced it. When I was sold from one man to another, the box of pills came with me,” explained the girl, who learned only months later that she was being given birth control.

It is a particularly modern solution to a medieval injunction: According to an obscure ruling in Islamic law cited by the Islamic State, a man must ensure that the woman he enslaves is free of child before having intercourse with her.

Islamic State leaders have made sexual slavery as they believe it was practiced during the Prophet Muhammad’s time integral to the group’s operations, preying on the women and girls the group captured from the Yazidi religious minority almost two years ago. To keep the sex trade running, the fighters have aggressively pushed birth control on their victims so they can continue the abuse unabated while the women are passed among them.

The “drive” behind Islam… sickening!

Why is it that it is hard to find information about Islam without there being a sexual connotation to it? What in the world?!

With such an emphasis on women being chaste and modest, shouldn’t there be a very covert hiddenness to the beauty and the mystery that happens between a man and a woman in the secret places?   The outward hiddenness that the women are, in some places, required to display unless they prefer to be very harshly punished for showing more than a cheekbone, should – in theory – show the inward hiddenness of honor, respect, and propriety, especially within their most sacred beliefs and religion.

Instead, though, throughout the news, articles, and widespread information on Islam and Muslims from here in America all the way into Europe and the Middle East, there is always a rash account of something sexual driving this people-group. For some, it is just appalling that the exterior facade can be so overtly “pure” and “modest” when the hormones underneath are screaming into the media’s ears.

Well-considering the one major difference between men and women being the sex drive that men constantly battle, this religion – and yes it IS a religion, though also focused in political and military circles – is more like a big male-driven sexual carousel than it is a religious system based on honor and respect living to honor a God who loves his people. Islam does not “know” its god, nor is there a personal relationship, only the expression of sexual fulfillment in the afterlife.

Does anybody see that this is NOT a religion leading to goodness? Slavery, women as 1/3 value as a man, control, manipulation, female mutilation, etc. Does anybody besides me see a long-term problem with this???

The other problem is that Islamic rape is “permissible”.  Since when should raping a woman be “permissible” or encouraged?!  This once again supports the single drive that is behind this sickening mind-game.

The wisest man in the world once said, “Whatever a man thinks about, he becomes it.” If I could propose a world-changing thought here for our public ears: What if we – as a nation, including every single immigrant – thought about the same good, uplifting, strengthening, unifying, and empowering vision that is worthy of public discussion, that which established this country from the beginning, and wasn’t driven by or purposed in any personal pursuit behind closed doors?  Wouldn’t that be a life-changer!

As a woman, I have a voice, I have honor and respect. I choose to walk in modesty and integrity. I guard my body, soul, and spirit. And I refuse to be walked over as a 1/3 of anything. I know who I am and whose I am. My mind is renewed daily with good, wholesome, pure, and uplifting thoughts that are focused on an eternal good for all in a sense of equality and partnership. I encourage you to do the same.

Men are to be leaders who honor, respect, lead with courage, and serve with strength; and who earn honor, respect, and victory with their very lives. I encourage men and women everywhere to stand up for their virtues that will endure through eternity and be leaders of the least, honoring a God who keeps what is private in the secret places, living for the eternal good of both men and women.
