This is the second installment of the report on Robert Spencer’s speech to the Memphis ACT! for America chapter on June 15th. Instead of shunning this man, one day some of our so-called leaders will be turning to him for advice when they realize that he was right and they were wrong. Hopefully that day will be soon, but I won’t hold my breath.
Robert Spencer’s appearance at the June 15th Memphis ACT! for America meeting was an educational experience, that is, if anyone wanted to know the facts instead of some politically correct multicultural nonsense.
Spencer spoke about many aspects of Islam at the packed meeting. He said the Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 to re-establish the caliphate (A caliph is the successor of Mohammed, and is head of the caliphate). He explained that in 1924 the secular Turkish government abolished the caliphate, and that event was very signifigant…it would be like the Pope being taken down. So, in 1924 the caliphate was just a symbol of the unity of Muslims around the world. He said that Osama bin Laden and others had been trying to reverse the downfall of the caliphate. The caliph is the only person that is authorized to order offensive jihad, Spencer explained.
He said that Islam is the “shark of human cultures.” The United Nations sends money to Gaza which is treated as “jizya” or otherwise known as the infidel tax. Muslims do not pay taxes, but they bleed the cultures dry that they conquer and then move on to other conquests. Spencer pointed out that President Bush sent $1 billion to Pakistan to help conquer the jihadists, and we have not gotten our money’s worth out of that. Even so, Congress voted to triple that amount. He noted that unless Barack Obama is a total dope he knows what he is doing, and must like to bleed the West dry in service of the Muslim world.
Americans must realize this is “a war like no other, and we are all soldiers in it,” Spencer said. He referred to the infamous memo written by Mohamed Akram of the Muslim Brotherhood that stated their long-term plan to implement “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
There is “no opting out” of this war, Spencer stressed, and it is imperative that we motivate other people. It is not a religious freedom issue. The United States does not allow Mormon polygamy nor human sacrifice as accepted religious practices. He encouraged those in attendance to educate others to the fact that this fight is not religious, but is actually political. We are trying to defend our way of life.
There are things that Americans can do to counteract the onslaught of Islamic supremacism. Spencer said that there are still sedition laws on the books that are largely ignored. He stressed that these laws must be re-examined. He was also encouraged by the initiatives in 20 states to outlaw Sharia law. Even though CAIR and other radical Islamic groups claim these initiatives are a religious freedom issue, don’t buy into their taqqyia (lying for the sake of Islam). As Spencer so correctly pointed out, “the 1st Amendment is not a suicide pact.”
He urged the crowd to use whatever talents they have to try to raise awareness about this issue. Perhaps some can be watchdogs, monitoring speakers who attend events sponsored by groups such as the Muslim Student Association. Or, some may be able to examine Islamic textbooks to see what is being taught in schools, especially in light of the fact that 80% of mosques in the U.S. teach hate.
Spencer said that he has been working on these issues for 10 years, and is used to losing. “The media, government, and law enforcement are against us.” However, about five years ago he started to become more hopeful. The initiative in the 20 states to outlaw Sharia law has given him much hope. “You can’t keep denying what we see. More and more people are waking up.”
He says he is confident that we are going to come out of this because we have a superior culture and we have to value who we are.
Amen and Amen.
Until next time,
