Jihad Advice from Thomas Jefferson

All the touching, feeling, and peeking going on at our airports these days brought on a rash of discussions about our rights as individual citizens. “Don’t touch my junk,” made us finally ask, “What’s up with this?”

Let’s see, young Middle Eastern Arab men killed 3000 people on 9/11. Young Middle Eastern Arab men attempted a massacre at Fort Dix. A young Middle Eastern Arab man massacred people at Fort Hood. Another young Middle Eastern Arab man got on a plane with a bomb in his underwear. And still another young Middle Eastern Arab man attempted to car bomb Time Square.

I finally see the logic for feeling and x-raying all Americans. You never know. One of those passengers may be hiding a young Middle Eastern Arab man!

But since we’re on the topic of the rights of Americans, perhaps we ought to look at who made that argument in the first place. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence that founded our government on the case of a created order. In the “Created Order” people’s rights are a gift from God. The state has the responsibility to protect the citizens’ lives but the state can only go as far as the citizens consent.

I guess that means that We The People could actually abolish the TSA. Not to worry. The current generation doesn’t even know what the Declaration of Independence says. So what possible meaning can the life and times of Thomas Jefferson have for us today?

Airport screening lines and the TSA mess in our airports are a result of the Islamic jihad against Americans. It’s our reaction to them and now we’re paying out billions from our treasury to the TSA that’s not killing a single enemy jihadi. It’s ransom for our security. What possible guidance could Thomas Jefferson ever give us about that? He came from a totally different world. Or did he?

Actually not, there was a slight problem in Jefferson’s day of the alliance of the Islamic Barbary States of North Africa. Their allied navies assaulted and kidnapped thousands of American citizens on commercial ships and sold these Americans as slaves in Islamic nations. So the first wave of Islamic terror against Americans began 227 years ago after America signed the Treaty of Paris ending the Revolutionary War in 1783.

President George Washington sent Thomas Jefferson and John Adams to London in 1785 to meet Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman representing the Barbary Muslims States. He told them that according to both Muhammad and the Koran it was their Islamic right and duty to make war upon American unbelievers wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.[i] That’s no different than The 9/11 Commission Report published in 2004.

Since America didn’t have a substantial navy, the United States decided to pay tribute and ransom to the Barbary States as protection. Disappointed in their policy Jefferson wrote to John Adams July 11, 1786 saying, “It would be best to effect a peace through the medium of war. Paying tribute will merely invite more demands.”

Five years later on May 13, 1791 Secretary of State Jefferson told the American consul in Morocco, “It is lastly our determination to prefer war in all cases to tribute under any form, and to any people whatever.”[ii] On December 26, 1786, Jefferson wrote, “It will be more easy to raise ships and men to fight these pirates into reason.”

When Jefferson became president in 1801 he refused Tripoli’s demands for an immediate payment of ransom for kidnapped American sailors. Instead he sent The United States Navy to blockade their ports and sink their ships.

The life and times of Thomas Jefferson are extremely relevant today. Jefferson proved that resources spent for protection money never worked. Taking the battle to the enemies’ homeland did.

We also need to remember that our nation’s battles with the Barbary Islamists lasted fifteen years from 1801 until 1815. President Jefferson’s successor, James Madison, finished it with The United States Navy’s victories by Commodores William Bainbridge and Stephen Decatur that led to treaties ending all tribute payments by the United States in 1815.

If Jefferson wouldn’t pay tribute for safety why should we make a lifestyle of it? Instead, we should follow Jefferson’s example as well as his advice, “Paying tribute will merely invite more demands…our determination (is) to prefer war in all cases to tribute under any form.”

After all, Thomas Jefferson not only wrote the Declaration of Independence, he enforced it as the third President of the United States. His example to us…send the Navy and the Marines after the Islamists until it’s finished, and don’t lose heart even if it takes fifteen years.

Islam vs. The Oath of Citizenship

Just hours after I posted “Cowards in the Land of the Brave,” Faisal Shahzad, the New York City Bomber, proved my point. I explained why Muslims in America are taking the Oath of U.S. Citizenship in violation of the oath, itself. Less than 48 hours after I posted that article, U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum sentenced Faisal Shahzad to life imprisonment.

At the time of his sentencing Judge Goldman asked Mr. Shahzad if he took the Oath of U.S. Citizenship. “I did swear,” Shahzad replied. “But I did not mean it.”

That Oath of U. S. Citizenship states:

“I hereby declare, on oath,

  • That I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;
  • That I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic;
  • That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…
  • And that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”

Judge Goldman cut to the quick. Shahzad was living undercover as a citizen, but never became a citizen. Faisal Shahzad’s Oath of Citizenship is null and void by his own proud testimony, “I never meant it…Allah Akbar!” So, Faisal Shahzad and those like him are spies, terror operatives, and enemy combatants on American soil disguised as citizens. Shahzad said there are many others just like him that are here to destroy America. “We are only Muslims,” he warned. And that opens up a whole new discussion about Islamic immigrants, doesn’t it?

Muslim spies and Islamic terrorists like Faisal Shahzad wait for their citizenship oath as part of a strategy to stump the United States in prosecuting their crimes. Islamic terrorists hope to use their legal rights as American citizens to tangle up the legal process and gain media attention.

“You mean they want to use our media to put on the Allah Akbar Show?”  you ask. “You mean my Muslim neighbor might be a terrorist sympathizer?”

Yes, America, it’s time to wake up and smell the coffee. When Shahzad said there would be others to follow in his footsteps, he told the truth. As a matter of fact there have been 40 terror plots foiled since 9/11.

This is part of the war strategy taught to the terrorist cell groups trained in places like South Lebanon twenty years ago. There, they were taught to get visas, embed themselves in American society and seize their chances to murder as many innocents as possible.

They live in America, France, Great Britain, Canada, etc. But they don’t recognize the laws and sovereignty of the nations where they live. They have their own code of law that supersedes all others. So where is their allegiance? Their allegiance is to Islam, a state-within-the-state.

“You live as a state-within-the-state until you take over,” said the Imam at Green Lane Mosque caught on tape by U. K.’s Channel 4. “We do not accept your democracy or your freedom because we already have Sharia law and freedom,” Shahzad preached to the U.S. Court.

Apparently, the freedom he refers to is the permission to burn, kill, hate and destroy the people and governments of the nations they live in. “We are only Muslims … but if you call us terrorists, we are proud terrorists and we will keep on terrorizing you,” said Shahzad.

It’s time to stop saying all religions deserve the right to live in the United States. You don’t deserve the right to live like cowards in our great nation if your religion says:

  • Live as a spy and undercover terrorist by lying under oath
  • Your only allegiance is to Islam and Sharia Law
  • You have the right to murder and destroy for Allah
  • Overthrow all other nations of the world

We can tell ourselves all Muslims are not like this, but clearly multitudes of Muslims are like Shahzad. And if that’s the case, how shall we protect ourselves from their destruction and hatred? Ignoring the realities will not solve the problem. Someday, Mr. and Mrs. America, they’re coming for you and your children on the school bus. What are you going to do to stop it?

Cowards in the Land of the Brave

Recently, I asked a neighbor what he thought about the preeminence of Islam in the news, and his reply was, “Hey, America is supposed to be a religiously tolerant nation. People have the right to worship however they want.”

But when I pressed the issue a bit, he got irritated and immediately set up the old straw man saying, “I suppose you’re one of those who thinks all Muslims are terrorists.” In the end he admitted he wasn’t aware that Islam made no separation between Mosque and state. But that really didn’t seem to bother him and he was much more talkative when I changed the subject to Monday Night Football.

That conversation is where I think the average American citizen stands right now. While an Islamic revolution is taking place right under our noses, we seem far more interested in the next Bears v Packers game on MNF. In other words, “Don’t bother us with anything serious, and forget that dangers-of-Islam-stuff.”

We shouldn’t be surprised and it’s hard to hold it against the average American. After all, our public goes largely unadvised of the looming peril. For the last two years while Obama brown-nosed the Islamic world, our mainline media simply agreed because ninety percent of the decision makers in the media vote democrat. Torn between their allegiance to the “The Party” and their perversion of the facts, the mainline media actually promotes an Islamic Revolution in America.

That’s precisely why I’m writing this essay and putting it out for public discovery. I want to bother as many Americans as I possibly can with the facts. Not all TV-football-addicts will listen up, but maybe I’ll get a few.

First, let me answer the question of the straw man. Do I think all Muslims are terrorists? Of course not, but my experiences in both the Middle East and America taught me that Muslims can be turned to agree with terror or kept quiet.  Let me give you two chilling incidents as examples right here in America.

The first happened immediately after 9/11/2001 when a Muslim friend I’d known for nearly three years said to me with cold-blooded laughter in her voice, “Oh please, America brought that on themselves. It’s their foreign policy. They support Israel!” When she referred to U.S. foreign policy, she called it “their foreign policy.” The irony in that remark is that she is an American citizen.

I don’t know if anything can ever excuse her total lack of feeling for 3000 murdered people and the suffering of their families. But as an American, why didn’t she at least say, “our foreign policy?” Instead, her remark betrayed her heart’s true allegiance. According to Islamic principles of the Hijra, she is first and foremost a citizen of the fascist Islamic state that has no borders and claims the right to rule over all nations of the earth.

Since her oath of American citizenship renounced other states and promised to defend America against all enemies foreign and domestic, she made it clear she agreed with our enemies in violation of her oath. And, by the way, that’s exactly what the Time Square Bomber said regarding his oath of American citizenship, “I did swear, but I didn’t mean it.”

The next incident was from the mouth of another Muslim I’ve known for years as well. He’s also an American citizen. During the third week of July 2006 as Hezbollah rockets were falling by the thousands on Israel from Lebanon, this Muslim told me, “I hate Hezbollah. I hope Israel destroys them once and for all. The whole world will be better off.”

I’d begun writing my book, Eyewitness to Evil, only days before. Stunned by the passionate remark of this Muslim man in America, I asked him if I could quote him in my book. He answered, “Don’t you dare! They’ll come for me or even kill my family.”

So, my fellow Americans, there you have it. My question is this: what did he know about the Islamic community living in America that the rest of us don’t? This Muslim won’t speak up because he knows that the assassins of Islam are here on American soil to keep him quiet, and he lives in the fear of what they might do to him. So, Islamic terrorists have already robbed this American of his rights to free speech and silenced him. He’ll keep quiet. If Islam wins out in America, he’s ok. If Islam loses, he’s still ok.

These two Muslims are willing to take what the free and the brave have bought with their lives while giving nothing back. They are loathsome varmints. They live as cowards hedging their bets while using the benefits of a nation bought by the sacrifices of the valiant.

My fellow Americans, wicked people have come to our own shores and imbedded themselves in our own society. Thinking that from within and from without they will trick us and create a fearful chaos that will eventually make us succumb to Islamic fascism. We won’t. Americans will rise up to bear the burdens and meet the hardships necessary.

The tide is turning on the Islamic Revolution to overthrow the U.S. Constitution? The stealth jihad is about to get blown wide open. Stay tuned.

How We Can Honor Those Lost on 9/11

On the television screen in front of me burned the north tower of the World Trade Center. While the news commentator explained that a plane had crashed into the building, I watched another airliner appear in the picture on the live feed and fly directly into the south tower…boom.

“That was no accident,” I said out loud to my television. Within seconds my reason searched through my memory. I’ve seen this before, I thought.

My mind had already made the connection to an incident I’d witnessed fifteen years earlier while reporting in the Middle East. On that day I drove my car up the mountain road and parked in front of the Arazim Hotel in Metulla, Israel, where I was going to eat lunch.

Located next to the Lebanon-Israeli border on the Israeli side, the Arazim Hotel had a direct line of sight into the Valley of the Springs on the Lebanese side of the border. From my table on the terrace I watched a small Israeli troop convoy that had passed through the border and was driving right to left across the Valley of the Springs just a few hundred yards beyond the border fence inside Lebanon.

A small pickup truck descended the mountain road just south of Dier Mimas and approached the lead Israeli jeep moving the opposite direction toward the Shiite village of El Khiam. The officer in the lead Israeli jeep motioned the truck to the side of the road. It obeyed but suddenly pulled back on the road running into a passing troop truck…BOOOOM!! The pickup morphed into a huge ball of orange flame and black smoke.

As I watched the plane fly into the second tower the morning of 9/11, my memory connected that incident to this suicide bombing I’d seen years earlier, the motion of one object deliberately colliding with another and morphing into flame. The tactics were identical. Then, from deep within came a message: “They’re here. The war for America has begun.”

When I left the Middle East in 1986, I knew it could happen. I just didn’t know when. However, after fifteen years I relaxed thinking, I must have been wrong. But I wasn’t.

As I fought through my own tears of grief and heartache in the days following 9/11, I remembered my eyewitness experiences from the Middle East, and I reminded myself that the role of terror is to manipulate the living through pain and fear. I suppose that’s where we are today, eagerly desiring peace and vulnerable to a lie.

Thirteen years before 9/11 the Islamic scholar, Bernard Lewis, wrote that there are two worlds in Islam, the world of war and the world of peace. All people outside Islam are in a constant state of war against Allah. Therefore, Allah gives his followers permission to lie to all unbelievers so Islam will gain the advantage. In The Political Language of Islam professor Lewis explains that the military struggle for world conquest called “jihad” is an obligation on all Muslims. He explains that Islamic law allows only for temporary cease-fires and no peace treaties. [Bernard Lewis, The Political Language of Islam, (Chicago: The University of Chicago Press, 1988) p.73]

My fellow Americans, our civilization is the target of a war, not a peaceful, religious movement. Islamic radicals are behind the smiles and peaceful overtures. The gestures of peace we hear today are nothing more than lies meant to trick us into a creeping submission to Islam. Take the bait. Give in a little here and there.

Make no mistake. In the days ahead there will be more Islamic attacks on the innocent and unsuspecting in America. After those future attacks will come their media campaign blaming America. Why did we go to Iraq? Why are we fighting in Afghanistan? Why do we support Israel? Why do we dislike Muslims? Behind all the questions is the real hidden agenda. Why don’t we Islamize America?

So, whether it’s an attack of terror or a lie about a peaceful solution, don’t give in and don’t be fooled. Remember those who fought back and gave their lives on 9/11. The fate of our nation depends on your steadfast resolve to win.

Becoming Muslim Sensitive is Death to America

Does it seem to you like the elite media, Mayor Bloomberg, President Obama, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are teaching the rest of us commoners to all become more “Muslim sensitive?” That’s the way it seems to me, and it gives me the creeps.

Just imagine if President Obama and Speaker Pelosi established that all good Americans need to become more “Catholic sensitive.” Somehow, throughout America, our citizens would need a special lesson in what it means to be Catholic. But let’s expand that to include Southern Baptists and Orthodox Jews. Then, we would need two more seminars in sensitivity, and government coaching for every religious denomination that feels unappreciated. What nonsense!

Interesting isn’t it? Look what happens when a junta of political leaders in America spouts off without correctly applying The Declaration of Independence of the United States, which clearly states:

“…all men are …endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men.”

The role of our civil leaders has nothing to do with recognizing the rights of any group of people for their religious practices in favor of another. The role of our leaders in government is to establish the structure for the unalienable civil rights of man, nothing more or less. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution explains this clearly.

What’s creepy about the whole process is that President Obama is manipulating the citizenry by establishing a special place for one religion in the public eye. This debate has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with a simple civil right. But President Obama has made it a public relations campaign for Islam. For two years he’s pushed the establishment and acceptance of the Islamic religion in America. That’s creepy, and it’s left millions of Americans asking if Obama is a Muslim.

Americans are not dumb. They see that President Obama has gone out of his way to give preferential treatment to one specific religion ever since the first days of his presidency. Americans can see that President Obama prefers Islam and has done all he can to push the envelope establishing this ½ percent minority in a preeminent role over all other religions in America. Worse yet, he’s done it at the public expense of Israel. What’s up with that?

Do American’s realize that the Islamic religion makes no separation of mosque and state? I don’t think so. What’s really going on is the sly manipulation of our great republic into compliance with Islamic legal principles known as Sharia. Playing on the naiveté of the American public, Islamic spokesmen sell us Islam as just another religion. It’s not. It’s a tyrannical political system wrapped in religion. And President Obama has made Sharia financing the “New National Security Strategy.”

In my book Eyewitness to Evil I tell of my interview with President Chamoun of Lebanon who told me how the Lebanese Republic struggled to maintain equilibrium against the Islamic state-within-the-state-movement. In my essay, Target America, I tell how the jihadis planned their movement to our shores 23 years ago. Now we’ve begun to see the state-within-the-state-movement of Islam in America. We need to end it now before our enemy can declare, “death to America” resulting from our own ignorance of the historical facts involving Islamic practices of conquest.

Changing the Narrative

Have you noticed how the language of the news changed? Islam has regained preeminence, but the word “jihad” has almost disappeared. Now we hear all about the “rights of Muslim Americans.” So, the narrative has changed from an Islamic violent jihad to an Islamic legal jihad.

Oh yes, we hear nice phrases like “bridge-building” and “healing,” but the real issue is the demonstration of a “Constitutional” religious establishment by Muslims in America. Yet, this still takes place at Ground Zero…how coincidental. Or is it agitation by design?

Next to the very area where Islamic fascists exerted their right to attack America and kill 3000 Americans, we are now told to honor Islamic rights to build a “monument to Allah” within sight of Ground Zero, itself. The very request seems audacious if not rude. It’s stick-your-finger-in-their-eye diplomacy. So, what are we to conclude?

Just listen to the narrative of the Islamic community on the issue. It’s all over agitation for “their rights as Americans.” So, instead of us reacting in hurt and asking: “Why here?” We must react with intellect and ask: “What’s this really about?”

The answer to that question is hidden in the ages. In 622 AD, nearly 1400 years ago, Mohammad moved the community of Islamic believers from Mecca to Medina in Arabia. In Islamic history this is called The Hijra.

To accomplish the task he made an immigration agreement with the three local Jewish tribes that controlled the city. That agreement established the Islamic believers as a state unto themselves with no geographical boundaries. The state became the religion and the religion became the state.

There is no separation even today. The only limitation of the expansion of the state of Islam is the immigration and increase of Islamic believers to any region. That’s why the Hijra is recognized today as the historical beginning of Islam’s success.

Immigration and legal changes for Muslims have always been keys to Islamic imperialism. Overthrow nations by stealth when they cannot win by attack. In the months following the Hijra the three Jewish tribes in Medina were massacred and banished, all because they first agreed to “Islamic rights.”

So what does all this say to America as we listen to the new Islamic narrative of agitation and control at Ground Zero? It says we are still pictured directly in the gun sights of the Islamic jihad. America is still the bull’s-eye. Nothing has changed since 9/11 except the words. Overthrowing America is still the objective, and the pattern for takeover is as old as Islam, itself.

What was Treason is now Bridge-building

A lie will always be a lie, but in political correctness we change the labels. And if lying is part of your religious system, then deceiving the non-believer is the path to victory. The strategy is as old as war, itself. Make the enemy think you’re coming from one direction so they divert their forces and turn their heads. Then, hit them with the real attack. In sports we call it the fake-out. Fake the opponent in one direction, and when he shifts his body to defend, go in another direction for the goal.

Islamizing America is no different. Today’s Islamic jihad is a system of governmental laws taken from a religion preaching violence in mosques and centers of Islamic study worldwide. There’s no separation between mosques and state, so it violates our First Amendment. Furthermore, the Islamic system of Sharia Law violates our Constitution and threatens to turn all non-Muslim Americans into second-class citizens.

“Aren’t they just seeking their right to worship?” you ask. Omar Ahmed answered that question. As Chairman of the Board for the Council on American Islamic Relations, he said, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America.” So, the real goal is the replacement of the U.S. Constitution with Sharia Law.

Imam Abdul Rauf of the ground zero mosque even said as much in an Arabic language interview to Hadiyul-Islam May 26, 2010. In that interview English translators caught him saying, “It’s clear that an Islamic state can be established in a democracy (like the United States). The important issue is to establish the fundamentals of Sharia.”

So, Imam Abdul Rauf says one thing in English to the unsuspecting American audience and calls for the overthrow of America in an Arabic interview to an Islamic publication. My fellow Americans, here we are at war with an Islamic jihad that seeks to overthrow the United States and an American citizen is actively aiding our enemy to accomplish their goal. Didn’t we used to call this treason? But Imam Abdul Rauf smiles and in English to the naïve American media calls it “bridge-building.”

Let’s not be naïve. The jihadis attacked us on 9/11 and they seek nothing less than the replacement of our Constitution with Sharia compliance. That’s the Islamization of America, the conquest and legal dominion of the United States under Islam.

In Spain for over five hundred years the city of Cordoba was the Islamic capital under Muslim dominion beginning in 766 AD. Isn’t it curious that Imam Abdul Rauf heads up the “Cordoba Project” in New York City, and the mosque-community-center he seeks to build near Ground Zero will be called the “Cordoba House?” …. Checkmate…

Do you hear the sounds of laughter America? It’s the sound of derisive laughter throughout the Islamic world at the stupid Americans who believe the lies. The jihad just gave us the old head fake and we went for it. Now, “General” Abdul Rauf launches the real attack. The battle to overthrow our Constitution with Sharia compliance has begun. The real translation of his “bridge-building” is the chant of the jihad. “Death to America!”

TARGET AMERICA! An Eyewitness to the Jihad Speaks Out

It was a beautiful spring morning in 1985. The cloudless sky above the mountains brought clear air in off the Mediterranean Sea. The sun had already burned off the early morning fog that usually obscured the blacktop streets of Marjayoun. This strategic South Lebanon mountain village occupied a perch 1200 feet above the Litani River gorge and controlled all the roads below.

From my office I looked directly across the gorge to the ruins of Beaufort Castle atop the mountain that was exclusively Shiite Muslim territory. I had no idea of what was about to happen.

It was near the end of the first year of my contract as the producer for Middle East Television. From our offices in Beirut, Jerusalem, Marjayoun and Metulla we produced television news programs broadcasting in both English and Arabic across seven countries of the Middle East. As part of the English department I worked as a correspondent in both Lebanon and Israel. This morning my cameraman and I were heading further south to the large Muslim town of Bent Jbeil.

South Lebanon was the bottom third of the country and almost exclusively Shiite Muslim in population. I was an American working on a two-year contract occupying an office in a Christian village in the heart of Shiite dominated territory. To say I was kidnap bait was an understatement.

The Israeli army patrolled this sector, and every week some of their soldiers were wounded or killed. I crossed the border from Israel into Lebanon through a sector held by the South Lebanese Army. Since I had a pass from each side, I traveled by myself 24 hours a day 7 days a week in and out through the Israeli Army Gate. Some called me crazy, but I was the only correspondent in the world who was doing it. As a result, I was about to be thrown into a story years ahead of its time.

That morning my cameraman and I drove down the mountain ridge line from Marjayoun through the towns of Qlaya, Dier Mimas and Kifar Kila and continued along the Lebanon-Israeli frontier past Aytarun where we curved west and then south into Bent Jbeil that was surrounded on all sides by high hills. We were going after “evergreen” video footage that we could use in all manner of news stories.

Later in the day as we were preparing to leave Bent Jbeil, two young men who were following us finally approached. As a friendly gesture, I smiled and asked if they spoke English.

One stepped forward and said clearly, “We want to talk with you.”

“On camera?” I asked.

“No, no camera, no camera!” he said raising his voice and then asked, “Are you working with the Israelis?”

“No,” I replied.

“Are you an American reporter?” he asked.

“Yes, I’m an American,” I said.

“Well, I hate Americans,” he shot back and continued to rant for another minute telling me how Israel and America were evil. But his final statements were chilling.

“Some day we will come to America and make you pay,” he raged. “We are the holy warriors of Allah, and some day we will come to America and kill you Americans. You’ll see! You’ll see!” With that they walked away.

This wasn’t the first time I’d heard anti-American hatred in the Arab community. The Middle East is full of it. However, it was the first time I encountered two teenage soldiers of Allah that promised to come to America and wage war. And it was the first time I heard it in English from the mouths of the warriors themselves.

When I returned to the United States the next year, I tried in vain to tell this story to both the CIA and the press in America. They looked at me like I had two heads. The Jihad Denial Syndrome was in full force. Yet, sixteen years later on September 11, 2001, Americans suffered the most devastating attack ever carried out on our soil.

Three years later in the first publication of the 9/11 Commission Report it stated, “The nation was unprepared. How did this happen, and how can we avoid such tragedy again?” There is one answer for both questions. Our nation was unprepared because it scorned the truth.

The CIA had an office in Beirut, Lebanon. In addition, the four American television networks, the New York Times, and the Washington Post all had facilities and news correspondents in Beirut.

So after Islamists killed 259 Americans in Beirut in 1983, what did our mainline media conclude? Was there an Islamic war against America? Why, no. Instead, it was America’s fault. We were interfering in a “Lebanese Civil War” and America chose the wrong side. Of course, that’s why our soldiers got killed! What other reason could there be?

Yet sixty miles to the south of Beirut where I was in Bent Jbeil, Islamic cells trained teen warriors, tutored them in English and got them legal visas to America. So, even though the warriors-in-training were bragging on the streets of Bent Jbeil, the correspondents working for the American media in Beirut didn’t find this story? First off, they seldom traveled to South Lebanon. That was where “the hicks and yokels” lived.

Instead, our mainline media huddled together in the Commodore Hotel in Beirut where reporters met nightly at the hotel’s bar to discuss the news between each other. Oh, did I mention that the Islamic armies protected the Commodore Hotel and provided briefings for the American media? They fed our press as if they were a school of fish.

Little wonder why the narrative of the American news media reflected the Islamic Jihad’s point-of-view. And since the mainline American media chose the wrong worldview, they couldn’t put the pieces together.

The 259 bodies of dead Americans killed in Beirut by an Islamic army and the bragging teenage soldiers of Allah in South Lebanon were both testimony and evidence that America became the bull’s-eye of a worldwide Islamic jihad. Even more proof was on the way.

In the two decades before 9/11/2001 there were 84 Islamic paramilitary and terror attacks against the United States that killed 1215 Americans. That’s one attack on Americans every three months for twenty years. My fellow Americans, that’s war!

Yet the narrative of the Western media explained that a war against America didn’t exist. Instead, our casualties resulted from American interference in Islamic Holy Lands. According to their narrative, none of this would ever have happened except for the fact that Israel stole Islamic land and America supported Israel. The Christians of Lebanon and the Jews of Israel were the problem causing upheaval and oppression.

Let me translate that for you. The Jews and the Christians are at fault for holding down Islam. That’s been the rally cry of the Islamic Jihad for 1400 years. “First the Saturdays, then the Sundays.” Kill the Jews, and then kill the Christians.

Today, Americans are unaware that the Middle East was Christian for over six hundred years before Islam ever existed. It was the Islamic armies that destroyed over 30,000 churches and massacred countless innocent Christians enslaving their women as sex servants for the men of Islam.

So, when the Islamic Jihad arose and targeted America, our media chose the enemy’s narrative. Instead of warning Americans of the conflict to come, the mainline media denied the jihad and passed their self-deceit on to their home audience. The result was a nation unprepared and shocked.

Our leaders gain their authority from our consent. So, if the public is unaware of the jihad against us, they cannot demand our leaders protect us from it. But if our public finally realizes the truth, the Jihadi conquest of America will fail and our great beacon of freedom’s light will continue shining. I don’t know about you, but I much prefer freedom’s light to Islamic Fascism.
