Orlando: An act of war

After over 50 Americans were brutally slaughtered and over 50 wounded on their own soil in the latest Islamic terrorism attack, it’s utterly shameful that President Obama cannot bring himself to say the words “radical Islam.”  Equally abhorrent are Muslim Brotherhood groups, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), sending out their taqqiyah deception squads to feign sympathy for victims of Islamic terrorist attacks and referring to this most recent bloodbath as a hate crime.

President Obama, not to mention Bernie Sanders, is calling for more gun control.  Most Western world leaders and politicians are living in fantasyland when they blindly claim that guns are evil rather than condemn the supremacist ideology behind radical Islam, which believes that gays, non-believers, apostates, and others must die, as mandated in the Koran and other Islamic doctrine.  “We know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate,” stated President Obama.  Not a peep about radical Islamic terrorism.

Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton also refers to the Orlando jihadist attack as an act of terror and hate.  “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism,” Hillary tweeted in November.  If Islam has nothing to do with terrorism, then why was only an imam – and not a rabbi, priest, or swami invited to speak at the first press conference after the Orlando slaughter at the Pulse Nightclub?

Mujammad Musri, president and senior imam of the Islamic Society of Central Florida, also mentioned nothing about radical Islamic terrorism.  The imam did, however, warn the media to refrain from “rushing to judgment and from sensationalizing the story, because we do not want the story to be shifted from the focus of what it is.  It is a horrible tragedy.”  But again, nothing about a jihadist attack.

Is it any wonder that attacks against American citizens are being perpetrated when funding and ideology are being exported from radical Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran to Islamic centers and schools in the U.S.?  When radical imams from abroad are welcome to speak at U.S. universities and mosques?

Three years ago, British-born radical sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar, residing in Iran, was invited to speak at an Orlando mosque.  He called for the killing of gays: “Death is the sentence.  We know.  There’s nothing to be embarrassed about this.  Death is the sentence.”  One need not look beyond one’s own backyard in efforts to thwart radical Islam, especially as Westerners continue to flood their countries with unvetted Muslim refugees.

If CAIR and ISNA both unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation conspiracy back in 2008 to funnel millions of dollars to jihadist organizations truly stand for the Orlando victims and mourn with their families, as these groups claim they do, and if they truly are outraged at the Orlando jihadist, then they must take a firm stand against the Koranic verses that view homosexuals as contemptible and that call for their death.  They must speak out against those Muslims who advocate the death penalty for gays, who hang, stone, and throw them off roofs in countries run by sharia law.  They must stop referring to jihadists as mentally imbalanced individuals or lone wolves.

A more strident condemnation of radical Islam begins with the White House.  Americans are fed up with the Islamophilic and gun-control rhetoric coming from the White House.  Jihadist foot soldiers have been implanted throughout the U.S. and the West with the intent to kill and maim non-believers, and to subvert the rest to Islam.  Jihadist attacks are gaining momentum throughout the West, especially with the recent re-establishment of the Islamic caliphate by the Islamic State.

After the worst U.S. attack since 9/11, it’s past time for the Obama administration to tear off the blinkers, stop betraying American citizens, and properly address the issue of radical Islamic terrorism once and for all, especially with American Independence Day fast approaching.  This is a war against the U.S. and not a hate crime.  This is an ideological movement that seeks to destroy the entire Western world, its culture, and its values.  This is Islamic jihad.

Furthermore, it is important for Westerners to understand that during the Islamic month of Ramadan, jihadists do what they do best, following in the footsteps of their prophet Mohammed, who waged most of his caravan raids and most significant battles during this month.  Yes, it is a time for introspection, as Obama reassures American citizens.  Ramadan is a time for jihadists to give Allah what he wants, as mandated in Islamic scripture, that being the death of gays, infidels (recent Bangladesh and Tel Aviv attacks of Hindus and Jews, respectively), apostates, and more.

According to Robert Spencer, “Ramadan is a time when Muslims increase their devotion to Allah; Jihad in the Koran is taught as a meritorious act that increases one’s devotion to Allah and it involves waging war against unbelievers.”

The Islamic State is accelerating its operations and activating its sleeper cells worldwide as its tentacles are reaching into North Africa, Yemen, and Pakistan.  Radical Islamic terrorism must be countered and squashed, not by law enforcement, but by the U.S military.  And until Obama treats the Orlando attack as an act of war and not a crime or act of hate, more and more victims will fall prey to Islamic jihad on U.S. soil.
