Preparing For Jihad In America: An Intellectual Framework For Violence

BY Herschel Smith
1 year, 6 months ago

Daniel Greenfield supplies a bracing example of Sharia law.

Islam is peaceful. Just ask Rafiqi Islam, a loving husband, who told his wife that he had a present for her, blindfolded her to make it a surprise and then cut off her fingers. Then the rest of the Islam family mopped up the blood, while Mr. Islam threw her fingers into the trash, and after a few hours took her to the hospital where they warned her to tell the doctors that she had an accident.

The proximate cause of this event was that Mrs. Islam wanted to continue her education and Mr. Islam being a good Emirati Muslim was not so fond of the idea.

This is the sort of thing that Mr. Islam does from time to time. Diners in London got a surprise from Mr. Islam, three of him, who began stabbing and slashing their way through some trendy nightspots. The blindfold had been slapped on them by their own government and their own media.

Close your eyes while hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrants show up in America and Europe. Keep your eyes closed and Mr. Islam will give you a great big surprise.

For Europe, it’s more likely to be somewhere on the order of seven million.  But that doesn’t mean America isn’t affected.  John Guandolo gives us a synopsis of what he’s covered the last several years in his own work.

From Minneapolis (MN) to Hamtramck (MI) to Falls Church (VA) to Paterson (NJ) and many other towns and cities across the fifty states, the Islamic Movement is quietly conquering America.

The federal government sleeps, many state governments – including those controlled by Republicans – do their best to accommodate muslims waging Civilization Jihad against America, and the hard-left Marxists – including nearly all of the local and national media – are collaborators in the enemy’s efforts.

As UTT has previously reported, Minneapolis, Minnesota is currently enemy-held territory and will require force to take back.

Hamtramck, Michigan is a small suburb of Detroitistan, and is the first town in America to have a majority muslim city council.  This formerly Polish-Catholic town has been overrun by sharia-adherent muslims who have already achieved accommodations for sharia in the community.

Falls Church, Virginia is home to the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas’ Dar al Hijra Islamic Center.  The Muslim Brotherhood leader of Dar al Hijra, Sheikh Shaker Elsayed (former President of the MB’s Muslim American Society), recently gave a lecture promoting female genital mutilation.  Dar al Hijra is a jihadi factory whose property is owned by the MB’s bank NAIT (North American Islamic Trust).

Al Qaeda’s Anwar al Awlaki was the Imam of the Dar al Hijra beginning in January 2001 and serving for over a year there.

The community around Dar al Hijra has been taken over by sharia-adherent muslims.  Law enforcement calls the two twin apartment buildings in the area “Taliban Towers,” and the number of jihadis in this area of Northern Virginia, only minutes from the nation’s capital, is significant.

Historically, Paterson, New Jersey has been a melting pot of Irish, Germans, Dutch, Italians, Eastern Europeans and others.  Christians and Jews made a home in this town approximately 20 miles outside of New York City.

Now, estimates put the number of muslims in Paterson at over 30% of the total population.  This number – possibly over 40,000 – makes Paterson, New Jersey the town with the one of the highest concentrations of muslims in the United States.  Many Turks and Syrians are a part of the muslim community, but the majority are Palestinians/Hamas.  Many citizens are concerned for their safety and security.

He goes on, but then it’s so easy to do just that.  As for the U.K., Islamists are already part of the warp and woof of the culture.  It cannot be eradicated by closing the borders.  A Firearms Officer with the Metropolitan Police thinks that more police are necessary to bring security.  But he uses language reminiscent of the counterinsurgency experience in Northern Ireland.  Attempts to use the British experience there is why the British failed in both Basra and the Helmand Province.

In Northern Ireland the British were dealing with a people who were like minded in culture and (even though you might think differently) religion.  What the U.K. faces now is totally different, and would require a major paradigm shift in thinking as well as a rearming of the British people, not just LEOs.  This – they will not do.  I judge the U.K. as finished because of this.  Subjects of the crown will always be just that: subjects of the crown.

Here in America we face a different enemy.  The proximate enemy might be the uber-powerful state, or it might be Islam.  There are many dangers.  But the immediate danger has to do with the thought framework within which we function.  So here I am going to address something that needed to have been said long ago.

While my reputation might be one of throwing around tough language when it’s necessary, or just whenever I feel like it, in the end I am still a Christian.  I eat with you, live among you, worship with you, and know how you think.  I am not addressing those outside my own world view.  To be sure, I take great amusement in drilling holes in opposing world views.  If you believe that upon death the body cools to ambient temperature and that’s the end, you certainly have the freedom to believe that way, unimpeded by me.

If you want to tackle me for my world and life view, as I said, I find great amusement and pleasure in such things.  But you don’t make me the least bit nervous about my own views.  I took all the course work in philosophy, systematic theology and apologetics to hold my own in such a throw down.  But that’s a subject for a different time.  Right now I want to address Christians, because the Christian community in America is in need of a major intervention.  You know it’s true.

I’ve addressed it before, this idea that God expects us to defend ourselves and others because of the image of God.  But there is no end to the silly and trite pacifists who think they are being brave by eschewing self defense.  So let’s say it again.  Jesus demanded that his disciples seek weapons for their own defense, and not only did He do that, He told them to become criminals by doing so.

… for some evidence, see Digest 48.6.1: collecting weapons ‘beyond those customary for hunting or for a journey by land or sea’ is forbidden; 48.6.3.1 forbids a man ‘of full age’ appearing in public with a weapon (telum) (references and translation are from Mommsen 1985). See also Mommsen 1899: 564 n. 2; 657-58 n. 1; and Linderski 2007: 102-103 (though he cites only Mommsen). Other laws from the same context of the Digest sometimes cited in this regard are not as worthwhile for my purposes because they seem to be forbidding the possession of weapons with criminal intent. But for the outright forbidding of being armed while in public in Rome, see Cicero’s letter to his brother relating an incident in Rome in which a man, who is apparently falsely accused of plotting an assassination, is nonetheless arrested merely for having confessed to having been armed with a dagger while in the city: To Atticus, Letter 44 (II.24). See also Cicero, Philippics 5.6 (§17). Finally we may cite a letter that Synesius of Cyrene wrote to his brother, probably sometime around the year 400 ce. The brother had apparently questioned the legality of Synesius having his household produce weapons to defend themselves against marauding bands. Synesius points out that there are no Roman legions anywhere near for protection, but he seems reluctantly to admit that he is engaged in an illegal act (Letter 107; for English trans., see Fitzgerald 1926).

He told them it doesn’t matter what the state says.  They are to arm themselves.  Period.  The most high God said so.  It wasn’t an option.  It was a commandment.  And yet, we still see supposed Christians who are reluctant to arm up, raised in the “Jesus was a Bohemian Hippie Flower Child” culture of Christianity.

But the second problem is one that is a bit harder to fisk.  It has to do with eschatology.  Bear with me for a moment.  Millions upon millions of Christians in America believe in something called dispensationalist, premillennial eschatology.  In brief, it holds that the Church is a “parenthesis” in history, a divine “uh oh.”  Didn’t mean for that to happen.  God’s people are still the Jews, and this parenthesis ends when he “raptures” the church out of the world and deals with Israel.

The church gets to sit on its ass, do nothing, watch stupid night time sitcoms, avoid affecting the world around them, and look like the rest of the world, and then avoid what it has created with its sloth, laziness and inaction.  It’s a magic solution that let’s the church go blindly into the future thinking that everything is going to be okay regardless of what they do or don’t do.

But at no time in history has God ever allowed His church to neglect affecting the world and yet avoid the wake of judgment that creates.  The times this has happened in history are too numerous to cite, but suffice it to say that the Jews aren’t special, there will be no thousand year peaceful reign in Jerusalem, there will be no rapture, and God doesn’t suffer His church to become fools.

Trouble is coming, and in fact it is already here.  Things are going to get a lot worse, not better, at least for a while, and for the Christians reading this who have flirted with this ridiculous ideology, you’d better gun up.  Moreover, you need to think hard about these things.  To be sure, you need to be in decent physical shape by staying active when you can, whether it is carrying body armor and doing squad rushes, or simply hard exercise.  You also need to be practicing with your weapons.

But the root of the problem lies deeper.  You need to develop a thought framework for violence.  When is it acceptable?  Under what conditions?  What would it take to meet that threshold?  What do you do when that threshold is met?  How prepared are you mentally to accept the challenges that will bring?  Do you have a plan?

If you don’t know the answers to those questions, you need to do some serious reflection.  The theologians aren’t going to help you.  They’re lost in a world of racial reconciliation and a theology of togetherness.  Or you might be like the writer I cited earlier who thinks he is being brave by ignoring defense of his family.  Very well.  Your girls will wear hijabs and marry child molesters, your sons will pray to Mecca five times a day, your wife will be so fearful of losing her life she doesn’t even go out of the house, and you will work your entire life to enrich pagans and barbarians if they don’t kill you first.

Time is short, and the situation is serious.  The shortness of the time calls for an honest appraisal.  Within what mental and intellectual framework will you operate?

    Serious Reflection – Done;Decent physical shape- Done; Gun up- Done; Have a plan-Done; Practice with Weapons – Done. Add one more Herschel, prepare your Children/Grandchildren with no filters – both intellectually and physically. Provide them reading materials that deal directly and simply with the founding principles of this nation, the bravery and sacrifice of their ancestors and mentally prepare them for the coming storm(s). I appreciate your ability to communicate your contempt in which you hold much of modern day Christianity. My wife and I left our once conservative Lutheran Church Missouri Synod upon the arrival of a fat, pathetic socialist pastor from Indianapolis area who began his “transformation” of our little church by preaching “tolerance” towards Gays, acceptance of illegals and support for the poor little ticks pouring into our nation – as well, his and other elders (liberal scum came out of the woodwork once they heard his views) excusing of Islamic principles and acts of terror. His contempt for those of us in my former congregation that were retired Veterans was palpable – as was my contempt for him and those who sided with him. The Pacifism being preached by the new generation of Christian ministers – the “acceptance” of these heathen savages and their war against our beliefs, our society and our people is not to be ignored. With our Press now firmly in enemy hands, our Universities on the verge of total capitulation, our K-12 schools flirting with total capitulation in many areas and topping it off, our churches deciding to travel the route of cowardice – I truly fear for this republic. Thanks for a great article Herschel.

    I’m one of those atheists who also happens to be a libertarian. It is with more than a bit of amusement I watch the Christian Community come to grips with what it has become, after too many years under the government’s thumb. The whole notion of rendering unto God what is God’s and unto Caesar what is Caesar’s is now biting you in the ass big time isn’t it?

    I will stop my critique there though I could go on and on and on. Because we in the Liberty Movement need allies not division. I am happy that you have embraced a religion that suits you and which also seems mostly willing to tolerate me, though there are some noteworthy exceptions, people trying really hard to drive a wedge through the Liberty Movement along religious lines.

    Libertarians have been warning for decades: government is the enemy, it is not your friend, it is never your friend, it is the friend of your enemy. And by embracing the immigrant and so-called Refugee wave government proves this time and again.

    Welcome to the fight my brothers.

    @Swrichmond,

    You misunderstand in a big way. I’ve written extensively about the root of the American revolution being Christian and Calvinist. I am not “coming around” to anything. What I’m doing is an intervention for twenty first century Christians who have been taught improper theology their whole lives.

    You can thank Scofield and his “commentary” in his version of the Bible for all this “dispensational” bullshit. Been going on for more than a century now. “Sit back and relax” + placing the Jews on a massive pedestal = a sure recipe for death in the here-and-now. 

    Used to go to Calvary Chapel in OC, CA and have had my fill of the sort of people they produce. So many Protestant churches have sold out lock, stock and barrel to this nonsense I would up divorced due to it. I went back to the Anglican Catholic Church (no, neither Anglican nor Catholic). They are rock-solid. Not a pussy-man to be found among the clergy I know.

    Now I can’t stand most “Born-Agains”.

    Concur overall, be aware, that Israel are Gods chosen, and we Christians and Jews (tribe of Judah, Levites and one other that escapes me) are His people. The rapture is a fairy tale I fear too many Christians use to think they have a get out of jail free card, and they always seem to forget the part about God leaving a remnant. Always. 1000 year reign will absolutely happen, but we don’t know the time, only the duration. All that said, you are on point. I just don’t understand why some won’t call a spade a spade inregards to Islam. I think the pic brainwashing has them fearing speaking out against the groupthink. Our messianic congregations in our area fully realize the threat that islam (aka satanic death cult/political system) is. Even so, some, my wife included, fall back on the old “they can’t all be bad” thinking. I have to explain that what she thinks of as bad muslims are actually the ones who are walking the walk. The “good” ones are like 95% of Christians and Jews, mouthing the words but living another way. Funny how radical, in this day in age, means believing in word and deed. headlines out of England kept saying how cops took care of thinks 8 minutes after they were called. One armed man would have had that mess taken care of in seconds, no dead, no wounded, other than the terrorists that is.

    If you haven’t already read it, I highly recommend “The Barbarians Are Here”, by Michael Youssef. Excellent assessment of the present situation and review of scripture and history. I have family and friends in europe. They’re looking to emigrate. Possibly to the US, but they see our situation as being too similar to their own 20 years ago. Our leaders are killing the country the were sworn to protect. It will fall upon us to ultimately defend ourselves.

    Oh, but what about Romans 13????

    I pondered Romans 13 long and hard. My Rock Solid conclusion is likened to the Cross. The vertical relationship is the Word. The horizontal relationship is the law of the land, The U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights attached thereto, which I am sworn to since March 27, 1967. I see a real harmony between the two.

    In the examples that you provided above, I see potentially, if it were not for their prior training to resist, forced upon my children and grandchildren. Even a non-believer should be motivated to action to protect his family from the coming darkness.

    Someone recently said, “All I wanted to do is go to work, live my life in peace, and go fishing with my kids once in a while. Why can’t these asses just leave us alone?”
    The response was, “Creeps just gotta be Creeps. It’s what they do.”

    islam must be Extirpated. And it’s enablers, handlers, financiers, and sympathizers need, well, lampposts. islam cannot be properly addressed while we have a leftist democrat republican communistic government. It’s a multi-fronted problem as most deep rooted ones are.

    The Darby, Scofield, Dallas seminary teachings, this, “dispensationalist, premillennial eschatology” has been highly destructive to the church. I haven’t been christian for even 10 years yet but I can say that every time it was preached, taught to me, and examined by me I couldn’t hear this NEW version of Christianity. It was very frustrating. I just couldn’t hear it, it wouldn’t even enter my mind in a manner in which I could analyze it and draw conclusions. I could not hear it, understand it, make heads nor tales of it. However, When I read the Holy Bible the plain meaning is readily available and comes alive in mind but when trying to apply this spooky, mysterious, and futuristic doctrine of the scripture the bible stops making sense to me. The Word of God is NOT hidden. The spirit of God explains it to the believer. It is revealed. I think this premillenial stuff is, well, I’ll just say it, a lie. There is no Jew nor Greek. Either you are one in Christ or sadly, you ain’t.

    Pile the 501(c)3 nationalization of the churches on top of this and we’ve got ourselves a gubment run farce from what I can tell. I have yet to find, and I’ve been to dozens, a church that is registered with the IRS and not submitted to it. These conclusions are not what I expected to find upon conversion. It’s very frustrating and disappointing. I don’t really get the impression that the American Church is well aligned with what the LORD intended. When Cicero nationalized the roman church and gave them property, with lot’s of strings attached, it led to an anti Christ version of religion being professed across Europe and it persists to this day. I fear that submitting to the Internal Revenue Code will result (is resulting) in a similar path among the protestant. The Holy Spirit is God’s representative on earth. No man or government is above Him. Every knee will bow and for some, it’s going to hurt like shit. If you bothered to read this, thank you.

    As you can tell, I disagree. I’m a Calvinist. There is nothing special about Israel (except that perhaps they are an ally in the ME, perhaps not, depending). Other than that, God doesn’t look at them any differently than anyone else.

    Yes, Scofield popularized that bullshit, but Darby brought it here like a cancer to spread and disembowel the church.

    And yes, Fred, Darby’s crap is “new” to the church. This crap wasn’t taught in church history by anyone except the Montanists, who were roundly rejected for the apostates and crap weasels they were.

    This is the sort of thing “evangelical” pastors are focused on. They are absent from the pulpit, contrary to the examples of the men in the pulpit during the revolution who donned a uniform and fought for liberty.

    Folks, you can rely on your own pastors for virtually nothing whatsoever. They are absent. AWOL.

    Eric as I said above, dispensational premillinnialism has only been taught once in church history, specifically by the Montanists. They were rejected by the church – for good reason. Darby brought it to America, Scofield popularized it, and most of the American church believes it. But don’t confuse popular belief with orthodoxy. The American church separated itself from orthodoxy when it adopted this approach.

    The belief that the book of Revelation is apocalyptic language mostly about things that occurred around 70 AD is not “heresy.” Heresy would be something like denial of the deity of Christ, denial of the trinity, or denial of the vicarious atonement.

    EDIT: Whomever it is that wrote that article, Eric, has absolutely no earthly idea what he’s talking about, alleging that preterists don’t believe in a second coming, don’t believe in this, in that, etc., etc., etc.

    He’s full of crap. He needs to do some serious study before commenting again. It isn’t a scholarly assessment, and I would only assert again that my school of thought only holds that the book of revelation is about things that have mostly already occurred.

    Now, if what you are saying is that the view that the Church is God’s elect, His chosen people, and have been down through history, is somehow heresy, you are denying the entire history of the reformation, from Calvin to Luther, from Knox to Hodge, from W.G.T. Shedd to Dabney. You would also be denying so many Biblical proof texts that I simply cannot list them all. I’ll stick on the side of the reformation. You can believe what you want. If you wish to believe that you have a “get of all earthly problems card,” unlike all Christians that preceded you, Christians in Mesopotamia, Christians in Rome, Coptic Christians in Egypt, the Armenians, and on and on, then be my guest. In this schema, God’s plan is all about twenty first century American Christians, not any others across the world or throughout history.

    Have a conversation with your wife tonight and try to convince her that you don’t intend to provide earthly defense of her or your household because God’s going to “rapture” you out of this mess. Let me know how that works out for you.

    An anecdote illustrating beliefs of “moderate” Muslims: The following is second hand but was told to me by a man I know well (I’ll call him Fred) and I believe the story to be factual.

    Fred, a highly skilled information technologist, was working on contract for a large multinational corporation. He worked as a member of a team, and its members included four Muslims. Men, of course. They had spent significant parts of their working lives in non-Muslim countries and were by any definition moderate Muslims. Another member of the team was a Westerner who had married a Muslim woman. This disconcerted the Muslim team members but they simply avoided the subject for the sake of team cohesion. In a social setting, the married man said that he had been to church the previous Sunday and that his wife had accompanied him. This caused significant consternation, and upon being questioned he told the group that his wife had converted to Roman Catholicism. This caused immediate silence and much glancing back and forth between the Muslim men. Fred asked them what was the matter. They replied that the woman was now an apostate and this was forbidden. Fred further asked what the implications of that were, and one of the moderate Muslim men said, “That means we have to kill her.”

    I suggest a reconsideration of Romans 13. Consider older translations. There was a deliberate license taken with modern translations to have the passage read as if it called for submission to state authority. All sorts of mental gymnastics must be performed to conform that view with history and present day reality. Earlier translations provide a more natural, and rational, reading to me a call to submission to ecclesial authority. That is problematic for protestants and for Catholics under bad popes and easier to accept under a pope such as John Paul II. Nevertheless, the earlier translations are far more faithful than the wording of such as the NIV.

    @Dan,

    I’m not sure to whom you’ve directed your comment or what reconsideration you recommend. I am not in need of reconsideration of anything.

    As for submission to authority, I fear that this would end up in a very long discussion, and perhaps it’s fodder for another post, but I’ll try briefly to summarize.

    All relationships in life are to be viewed as a covenant, with blessings and curses. Marriage, the state, the church, the family, economics. All institutions, all relationships. There is not institution that falls outside of covenant bounds.

    That means that all commands are contingent, meaning that breakage of the covenant means the covenant is null and void. It is so in marriage, it is so in the state. Rulers get their authority from God only as long as they obey His commandments, and when they wax evil, the people have the right (and duty) to overthrow that ruler. The same with church authorities.

    Finally, submission to the church means that one doesn’t divide and cause schism in the church by forcing different teaching that the doctrine that defines that particular church. Nothing more. Find another church that meets your doctrinal system.
