Islam - Military Enemy or religion of Peace??

Is the war really against "terrorism" or are we truly fighting the "Nation of Islam"? Is Islam another Nazism or Communism, where the conflict is between unreconcilible ideas and principals? Finally, the question is being asked in the Pentagon according to an article in Frontpage Magazine.

In an article titled The Pentagon Breaks the Islam Taboo, Paul Sperry reveals the Pentagon is asking if Islam is an ideological engine of war: "The government asks the forbidden question: How closely related is Islamic terrorism to mainstream Islam itself?"

Finally, we quit taking the Moonbats ($1 to Michelle) word for it that Islam is a religion of peace (despite the beatings and murder of women who are victims of rape, the massacre of Christian girls and missionaries, and the public stoning of people who just irritated the wrong Iman) and seriously consider the question, what motivates these people? Is Islam absolutely hostile to free men and women, and people who wish to worship God in the manner they see fit? Are they compelled by their cult to destroy all who won't submit?

The article revealed:

'So far the conclusions of intelligence analysts assigned to the project, who include both private contractors and career military officials, contradict the commonly held notion that Islam is a peaceful religion hijacked or distorted by terrorists. They've found that the terrorists for the most part are following a war-fighting doctrine articulated through Muhammad in the Quran, elaborated on in the hadiths, codified in Islamic or sharia law, and reinforced by recent interpretations or fatwahs.

'Islam is an ideological engine of war (Jihad)," concludes the sensitive Pentagon briefing paper. And "no one is looking for its off switch.' Why? One major reason, the briefing states, is government-wide 'indecision [over] whether Islam is radical or being radicalized.' "

The report also notes according to the Quran, jihad is not something a Muslim can opt out of. It is required of a believer, even the weak and infirm must give "asylum and aid" (Surah 8:74) to those who seek to destroy the nonbelievers of Mohammed's writings. Conservatives have been pointing to this for several years, even pointing to Mohammed's own track record of murdering approximately 64 "heathens" including women and children, who didn't acknowledge him as a prophet and conform to his demands.

In further analyzing the threat here in the States, the Pentagon briefing details the U.S. has not suffered from scattered terrorist attacks, versus the elaborately planned and devastaing attack against the WTC, because it has a relatively small Muslim population. The report indicates that could change as the Muslim population grows and gains more confidence and power.

Sperry also writes:

The internal document explains that Islam divides offensive jihad into a "three-phase attack strategy" for gaining control of lands for Allah. The first phase is the "Meccan," or weakened, period, whereby a small Muslim minority asserts itself through largely peaceful and political measures involving Islamic NGOs -- such as the Islamic Society of North America, which investigators say has its roots in the militant Muslim Brotherhood, and Muslim pressure groups, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, whose leaders are on record expressing their desire to Islamize America.

In the second "preparation" phase, a "reasonably influential" Muslim minority starts to turn more militant. The briefing uses Britain and the Netherlands as examples.

And in the final jihad period, or "Medina Stage," a large minority uses its strength of numbers and power to rise up against the majority, as Muslim youth recently demonstrated in terrorizing France, the Pentagon paper notes.

It also notes that unlike Judaism and Christianity, Islam advocates expansion by force. The final command of jihad, as revealed to Muhammad in the Quran, is to conquer the world in the name of Islam. The defense briefing adds that Islam is also unique in classifying unbelievers as "standing enemies against whom it is legitimate to wage war."

It's an excellent read, and I highly recommend it, except for the libs. Maybe they can have someone read it to them since it does contain some big words. Also, since it's based on Islam's own words, examples of it's founders, quotes it's strategy and is written/assembled by people whose careers and possibly lives depend on an accurate portrayal, they won't believe it anyway.

Besides, according to the French-wannabe surrender monkey deanocrats, we've already lost. Wonder if the Iraqi's will even bother to show up for their third non-election this year since it's meaningless...
