As those of us who live in the West know well: Freedom is a precious commodity. Many have given life and limb to preserve it, in defensive wars. And, since we all have our part in preserving the liberty we enjoy…diligence is required in standing guard on the wall of freedom against those who desire to destroy us.
Freedom has many enemies, foreign (Islamists, Communists, Marxists, et al) and domestic (Leftists, Elitists, Islamapologists, etc.). Our most perilous, at the moment, are those devout followers of Muhammed and his teachings in the Quran, and other Islamic texts (Hadith and Sunna). They meet and plot in mosques globally. Their schemes are devised upon the teachings of the Quran…and therefore the mosque is a prime place for strategy against the infidels or Kuffar (that’s us).
But isn’t a mosque a house of worship like a church or synagogue? Far from it…
According to the Law & Freedom Foundation, and my friend Gavin Boby:
A mosque is not merely a place of worship. Islamic doctrine requires the application of Islamic law within its geographical reach. As homosexuals, Jews, and those attached to freedom of speech discover, Islamic law claims supremacy over the conduct of Muslims and non-Muslims alike. It mandates violence against those who resist it.
And Gavin is correct…but it’s even worse than that. Devout followers of Muhammed see a mosque in military terms. Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, from his speech in 1998: “Mosques are our barracks, minarets our bayonets, domes our helmets, the believers our soldiers.”
From what source could Erdogan get this warlike concept? From the Quran! There are at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.
That’s a boatload of “Bombs Away!”
Now, there are well over 2,000 mosques in America today. According to MappingSharia.com, “51% of U.S. mosques had texts that either advocated the use of violence in the pursuit of a Sharia-based political order or advocated violent jihad; another 30% had texts that were moderately supportive of violence.”
That’s not moderate or secular…and it SURE isn’t safe for American lives or freedom.
According to WesternJournalism.com:
Fact – Many of the terrorists have been radicalized in mosques and Muslim agencies right here in America. According to the NSA the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes mosques and Muslim affiliated facilities. Supposedly this is done to protect the sensibilities of innocent Muslims who worship in mosques.
Because, after all: A future Muslim vote, or the accolades or fellow foreign Elitists, is FAR more valuable than any innocent American life, right?
And understand…not every mosque is a towering structure. Some are storefront structures (mimicking Christian churches) and some meet in public facilities. But they have the same violent texts in their Quran…whether they follow them right now or not…and that’s worth shadowing.
Because perps like…
-Hasan Akbar (aka Mark Fidel Kools) who turned on his fellow soldiers, killing two and wounding 15. (2003)
-Hasan Nidal, who murdered 14 (including an unborn baby) and wounded 30 at a Fort Hood (yelling “Allahu Akbar”). (2009)
-Naser Jason Abdo, near Fort Hood, arrested with an unregistered firearm and allegedly planning to attack a restaurant frequented by soldiers from the base. (2011)
…were all “moderate”, before they weren’t…and they didn’t become devout in a Boy Scout meeting…
FBI Director James Comey told a gathering in Washington recently, “I have home-grown violent extremist investigations in every single state…So we have investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states.”
Now, I know the new GOP-led Congress has a lot on their plate, due to the anti-American agenda of this White House, BUT clearly, canvassing mosques must NEVER fall by the wayside…if we are to remain free…AND alive.
Shalom through strength…
