Curious vs. Clueless – Why take the time to learn about Islam?
The first time you attend an ACT for America meeting you will likely feel that you are the only person in the room who doesn’t know what’s going on. It’s a little like watching your first hockey game; everyone around you cheers or jeers at the same time and you have no idea what just happened. These people know the “lingo,” they speak a different language… they know what’s going on while you are curious and clueless.
The truth is that there’s only ONE way to become comfortable with hockey or “political” Islam and that is to dip your metaphoric toe into the subject. You’ll need a guide and there are resources out there that ACT for America trusts to teach you the ABC’s of Islam, Mohammed, the Quran (Koran), ISIS, Al Qaeda, Sharia, and the Muslim Brotherhood, to name the starting lineup.
But perhaps you’re less curious about Islam and really want to know WHY so many people are speaking out about it and consider it a threat. It’s just another religion, right? It’s just like Judaism or Christianity, right?
Billions around the world are Muslim… So what’s so wrong with a religion affirmed by so many people?
Whether you are merely curious or have crossed over into the realm of concerned, we would like to help you get started learning about “political” Islam with this 1-page piece by John Guandolo, our most recent guest speaker and the president of Understanding the Threat:
Today, ISIS is burning and killing its way across nations and is now looking into Europe to take the global Jihad into the West. Many “experts” are still questioning WHY ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas, Hizbollah, Al Shabab, Abu Sayef, Egyptian Islamic Jihad, and hundreds of other Jihadi organizations “hate” us.
Let us begin with what our enemy says openly. All of the organizations listed above, as well as the leading element in the Global Islamic Movement (what they call themselves) – the Muslim Brotherhood – state they seek to establish a global Islamic state (Caliphate) under Sharia (Islamic Law). All of them. Sharia is derived from the Quran and the Sunnah (the teachings, sayings, and example of the Prophet Mohammed who is considered the most perfect man in Islam).
100% of all published Islamic Law obliges the Ummah (Muslim community) to wage jihad until the entire world is ruled by Sharia. 100% of all published Islamic Law only defines Sharia as “warfare against non-Muslims.” There is no such thing as a “version” of Sharia that does not state this clearly.
We know, from evidence in the largest terrorism trials in American history, that the most prominent Islamic organizations in North America and Europe are a part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Global Islamic Movement and seek to overthrow our Constitutional Republic and replace it with an Islamic State under Sharia. Whether we believe these organizations can actually accomplish this mission, organizations mandated by statute to protect and defend this nation have an obligation to identify these organizations and their leaders as “hostile” and deal with them accordingly. To date, this has not been the case.
Join us for our next meeting and meet others who are in various stages of learning about Islam. Our guest speaker, Trevor Loudon, makes no secret that he loves America and will introduce us to “The Enemies Within” our own government – at the highest levels – including those who belong to the one of the most powerful arms of Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood.
Hope to see you on March 21st!
