Islamistic demonstration in London, Feb 3, 2006 - In the war between
civilization and barbarism, the defenders of civilization --including
decent, moderate Muslims-- must prevail. Not all Arabs/Muslims are
terrorists but the overwhelming majority of acts of terror are perpetrated
Like Nazism and Communism, a strain of Islam offers its followers
a form of redemption through violence and pushes for the establishment
of a global totalitarian empire that denies all political and religious
freedom. The terrorists are not a “radical” or “fundamentalist”
sect that had twisted religious doctrine for power and politics,
or that came to recast aspects of their faith out of some form of
insanity. They are simply an Arab warrior caste involved in an armed
jihad — a mainstream Muslim doctrine. This is how the physical
jihad has been understood since Mohammed revealed it as the prophecy
of Allah. Obviously, not every Muslim is obligated, or even really
inclined, to take up this jihad. Indeed, many Muslims are loath
to personally embrace this physical struggle. But that does not
mean they are all opposed to such a struggle any more than the choice
of many Westerners not to join the police force or the armed services
means they do not support those institutions.

East fly hijacked planes into our office towers. Tolerating terror
anywhere is encouraging terror everywhere. The
appeasers become a more attractive target for the terrorists.
most glaring security dangers facing humanity are the
proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the increasing technical
competence of groups ideologically driven to engage in mass murder,
and the prevalence
of state support for such groups.

language daily The Saudi Gazette/MEMRI translation, Nov 30, 2003)
law meets the 21st century (Prof. Y. Dror, JP, Mar. 4, 2004):
" ... radical innovations in international law are imperative.
"Atrocious terrorism" should be defined as mass killing
of civilians, included within crimes against humanity and subjected
to universal jurisdiction. An unconditional duty should be imposed
on states to act against atrocious terrorism, however "justified"
in the view of some regimes. Concomitantly, the right of self-defense
should be enlarged to include multiple measures, including preemption,
taken by endangered countries to stop atrocious terrorism against

of the Fall. More myths about the current war (Victor Davis Hanson,
NRO, Oct 10, 2003): "... what strikes students of this
war so far in its first two years is the amazing degree to which
the United States has hurt its enemies without incurring enormous
casualties and costs. So far there have been five theaters of conflict:
Washington, New York, Pennsylvania, Afghanistan, and Iraq. After
suffering about 3,000 dead, $100 billion in direct material damage
in Manhattan and D.C., and perhaps another $1 trillion hit to the
economy at large in areas as diverse as airline losses, increased
security expenditures, and tourist and travel drop-offs, the United
States has lost under 400 soldiers in defeating the Taliban and
Saddam Hussein, and probably spent roughly $100 billion in direct
military expenditures, with another $100 billion in slated reconstruction
'Libya Should Quit the Arab League... Women Must be Trained to Booby-Trap
Cars, Houses, Luggage, and Children's Toys' (Al-Shams/Libya, Oct
5, 2003 - MEMRI, Oct 10, 2003): "We
must train the women how to booby-trap the car and blow it up among
the enemy, how to blow up the house so it falls on the enemy soldiers.
Traps must be prepared. You have seen how [the enemy] check[s] luggage.
These suitcases should be rigged so that when they open them they
blow up. The women must be taught how to booby-trap their clothes
closets, booby-trap their purses, booby-trap their shoes, booby-trap
the children's toys, so they blow up on the enemy soldiers."
QAEDA'S AGENDA FOR IRAQ (Paris based Iranian journalist Amir Taheri,
New York Post, Sep 3, 2003): "'It is not the American war
machine that should be of the utmost concern to Muslims. What
threatens the future of Islam, in fact its very survival, is American
democracy." This is the message of a new
book, just published by al Qaeda in several Arab countries. The
author of "The Future of Iraq and The Arabian Peninsula After
The Fall of Baghdad" is Yussuf al-Ayyeri, one of Osama bin
Laden's closest associates since the early '90s."
and Mammon: Does Poverty Cause Militant Islam? (Daniel Pipes, National
Interest, Winter 2002): "To
the extent that economic factors explain who becomes Islamist, they
point to the fairly well off, not the poor.
Take Egypt as a test case. In a 1980 study, the Egyptian
social scientist Saad Eddin Ibrahim interviewed Islamists in Egyptian
jails and found that the typical member is "young (early twenties),
of rural or small-town background, from the middle or lower middle
class, with high achievement and motivation, upwardly mobile, with
science or engineering education, and from a normally cohesive family."
In other words, Ibrahim concluded, these young men were "significantly
above the average in their generation"; they were "ideal
or model young Egyptians." In a subsequent study, he found
that out of 34 members of the violent group At-Takfir w'al-Hijra,
fully 21 had fathers in the civil service, nearly all of them middle-ranking.
More recently, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service found
that the leadership of the militant Islamic group Al-Jihad "is
largely university educated with middle-class backgrounds."
These are not the children of poverty or despair."
Isn't the Issue. Islamic fanatics hate America in its own right
(Norman Podhoretz, Wall Street Journal, Sep 20, 2001): "I
would also advise listening to Prof. Fouad Ajami, an American who
grew up as a Muslim in Lebanon ... For years now, Mr. Ajami has
been insisting that "the great refusal" to accept Israel--under
any conditions whatever--persists "in that 'Arab street' of
ordinary men and women, among the intellectuals and the writers,
and in the professional syndicates." Moreover, "the force
of this refusal can be seen in the press of the governments and
of the oppositionists, among the secularists and the Islamists alike,
in countries that have concluded diplomatic agreements with Israel
and those that haven't."
he was good to his mother: Murdering for militant Islam (Daniel
Pipes, JP, Dec 3, 2003): "The news last week that police
had arrested Sajid Badat at his home in Gloucester, England, shook
many Britons. The charges against him concerned his training with
al-Qaida in Afghanistan and his possessing PETN explosives, the
same substance would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid had tried to set
off. Police believe Badat intended to carry off the very first suicide
bombing in the United Kingdom. But not everyone was shaken by this
news. Gloucester's Muslim community esteemed Badat too much to credit
the charges. One admirer called him "a walking angel"
and "the bright star of our mosque."
U.N. can't define terrorism, let alone confront it (Anne Bayefsky,
WSJ, Apr 28, 2003)
It. How to defeat suicide terrorism (Adam Wolfson, NRO, Sep 16,
2003): "In a rigorously researched article for The American
Political Science Review, Robert Pape has examined every suicide-terrorist
attack in the world from 1980 to 2001. There have been 188 such
suicide attacks worldwide, ranging from Lebanon to the West Bank,
from Sri Lanka to Chechnya, and from India to Turkey. From his survey
research, Pape, who teaches political science at the University
of Chicago, is able to explain much about this barbaric practice:
He shows how suicide terrorism operates, and why it became a growth
industry over the last several decades. His superb study should
help dispel the widespread notion that suicide terrorism is somehow
beyond comprehension, and beyond remedy. One of Pape's most
important findings is that suicide
terrorism is guided by clearly identifiable strategic goals. It
is not a mere act of wanton cruelty, though it is certainly that.
Nor is it an act of desperation by the dispossessed. Rather, suicide
-attacks are nearly always carefully calibrated to accomplish the
political goals of nationalists groups. Of the
188 suicide-terrorist strikes from 1980 to 2001, a whopping 95 percent
were undertaken as part of an organized political campaign; that
is, only 9 of the 188 attacks were unplanned."

of Chicago, American Political Science Review Vol. 97, No. 3, Aug
is Jihad (Daniel Pipes, New York Post, Dec 31, 2002): "Jihad
is "holy war." Or, more precisely: It means the legal,
compulsory, communal effort to expand the territories ruled by Muslims
at the expense of territories ruled by non-Muslims. The purpose
of jihad, in other words, is not directly to spread the Islamic
faith but to extend sovereign Muslim power (faith, of course, often
follows the flag). Jihad is thus unabashedly offensive in nature,
with the eventual goal of achieving Muslim dominion over the entire
Charter, article 13 (Palestine Center website, Aug 9. 2003):
“[Peace] initiatives, the
so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences
to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs
of the Islamic Resistance Movement. For renouncing any part of Palestine
means renouncing part of the religion; the nationalism
of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its faith …
There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad.
The initiatives, proposals and International Conferences are but
a waste of time, an exercise in futility.”
Lebanese Prime Minister Michel Aoun (Hudson Institute, Mar 14, 2003):
"Many regions of the world
today are in a state of a global and fateful confrontation with
terrorism ... Lebanon, a small country by size but much larger in
mission, was the first victim of modern terrorism.
At the end of the 1960s, Lebanon, a multicultural society, began
to absorb the shocks of the conflict between the East and the West.
In the early 1980s it found itself at the frontlines of confrontation
with Islamic fundamentalists. As a democracy and free market economy
surrounded by autocratic regimes and directed economies, Lebanon
strived to live under its secular and democratic constitution. In
addition, Lebanon contributed to
the drafting of the Human Rights Charter of the United Nations and
it is the only Arab country that has signed it as of today.
From their daily lives to their intellectual and cultural discourse,
the Lebanese people lived and practiced tolerance and moderation.
Lebanon became a model for all Arab intellectuals and a shelter
for the persecuted among them, and was in fact commonly known then
as the “Switzerland of the East.” Indeed,
Lebanon was an oasis of freedom in the midst
of the human desert that surrounded it. It was
a cultural bridge between East and West, savoring the value of freedom
in all its dimensions, from the freedom of creed to the freedom
of speech, the right to differ, political plurality and diversity,
and all the way to economic freedom."
George W. Bush, Feb 13, 2002: “This
enemy reaches across oceans; it targets the innocent.
There are no rules of war for these cold-blooded killers. They seek
biological and chemical and nuclear weapons to commit murder on
a massive scale. This enemy will not be restrained by mercy, or

demonology of SE Asian Islamists (Australian MP Michael Danby, Jerusalem
Post, Aug 31, 31, 2003): "Sue and Donna lived in Elwood
and Port Melbourne respectively, suburbs in my constituency in Melbourne,
where I serve as a federal member of parliament. Sue and Donna were
killed whilst enjoying a holiday in Bali, and now Donna leaves behind
a disabled four-year-old. As justification for their murderous acts
in Bali, two of the known perpetrators, Amrozi bin Nurhasyim and
Imam Samudra, have focused their
rhetoric on revenge 'against the Jews,' despite the fact that, to
the best of my knowledge, there are no Jews in Indonesia.
... Where European anti-Semites saw the Jews as the sworn enemies
of Christianity, the Indonesian
anti-Semites see the Jews and Christians as allies. Imam Samudra
says the Bali bombing was designed 'to carry out my responsibility
to wage global jihad against Jews and Christians throughout the
world.' When Samudra was led from court on 26
June, he yelled: 'Destroy Christians,
destroy America, destroy Jews!' ... Poor Indonesian
youth are attending religious schools (madrassas) and some of them
are being indoctrinated by Wahabist
preachers funded from Saudi Arabia.
The result has been to reconnect Indonesian Islam with the Islamist
strand of the Arab world, with its prevalent strains of anti-Western
and anti-Semitic ideology."
Terror Comes To India’s Streets (Swapan Dasgupta, Wall Street
Journal, Aug 27, 2003): "The new terrorists are not preoccupied
with the "liberation" of Kashmir from India, their objective
is a wider jihad aimed at the re-establishment of a Caliphate and
a war against the West, Israel and India."
and Islam (Charles Krauthammer, Washington Post, Dec 6, 2002):
"The world of Islam has bloody
borders. Most Muslims are obviously peaceful people living within
the rules of civilized behavior. But the actual violence, bloodletting
against nearly every non-Muslim civilization from Hindu, Christian,
Jewish, Chinese to African animist, demands attention."
Convention (IV) relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in
Time of War, Part I, Art. 3:
"(1) Persons taking no active
part in the hostilities, including members of armed forces
who have laid down their arms and those placed hors de combat by
sickness, wounds, detention, or
any other cause, shall in all circumstances
be treated humanely, without any adverse distinction founded on
race, colour, religion or faith, sex, birth or wealth, or any other
similar criteria. To this end the
following acts are and shall remain prohibited at any time and in
any place whatsoever with respect to the above-mentioned persons:
(a) violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds,
mutilation, cruel treatment and torture;"
Civilian Status Violates the Laws of War (Human Rights Watch, Mar
31, 2003): “International
law prohibits attacking, killing, injuring, capturing or deceiving
the enemy by resorting to what is called perfidy. A perfidious attack
is one launched by combatants who have led opposing forces to believe
that the attackers are really noncombatants. Acts
of perfidy include pretending to be a civilian (who cannot be attacked)
or feigning surrender (surrendering soldiers also cannot be attacked)
so that opposing forces will let down their guard at the moment
of attack. Other examples include feigning protective status by
the misuse of emblems of the United Nations or the red cross and
red crescent. Perfidy poses particular dangers because it blurs
the distinction between enemy soldiers, who are a valid target,
and civilians and other noncombatants, who are not. Soldiers
fearful of perfidious attacks are more likely to fire upon civilians
and surrendering soldiers, however unlawfully.”
distinction - attacks on civilians by Palestinian armed groups (Amnesty
International): "The deliberate
killing of Israeli civilians by Palestinian armed groups amounts
to crimes against humanity. As defined in the
Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, crimes against
humanity are various acts committed as part of a ''widespread or
systematic attack directed against any civilian population'', ''pursuant
to or in furtherance of a State or organization's policy to commit
such attack''. (71) The specified acts include murder, torture and
''other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing
great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical
health.'' (72) Crimes against humanity do not require a link to
an armed conflict - they can be committed either in peacetime or
in wartime. The deliberate killings
of Israeli civilians by Palestinian armed groups and individuals
are both widespread and systematic, and are perpetrated as part
of a publicly announced policy to target civilians. They
therefore satisfy the definition of crimes against humanity included
in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which is
recognized as reflecting customary international law. War crimes
and crimes against humanity are among the most serious crimes under
international law, and represent offences against humanity as a
whole. Bringing the perpetrators of these crimes to justice is therefore
the concern and the responsibility of the international community.
This view is illustrated in the Preamble to the Rome Statute of
the International Criminal Court, adopted in July 1998, which affirms
that the most serious crimes of concern to the international community
as a whole must not go unpunished and that their effective prosecution
must be ensured by taking measures at the national level and by
enhancing international cooperation."
with Hamas (Alan Dershowitz, professor of law at Harvard Law School,
Globe and Mail, Sep 16, 2003): "... there can be absolutely
no doubt of the legality of Israel's policy of targeting Hamas leaders
for assassination. Hamas has declared war against Israel. All of
its leaders are combatants, whether they wear military uniforms,
suits or religious garb. There is no realistic distinction between
the political and military wings of Hamas, any more than there is
a distinction between the political and military wings of al-Qaeda.
The official policy of Hamas, like that of al Qaeda, is the mass
murder of civilians. The decision to employ that policy was made
by its so-called "political" leaders. The United
States properly targeted Osama bin Laden and his associates, as
well as Saddam Hussein and his sons. Under international law, combatants
are appropriate military targets until they surrender. They may
be killed in their sleep, while preparing military actions or while
participating in any other activity. They need not be arrested,
or even given a chance to surrender. Only if they come out with
their hands up, or waving a white flag, or affirmatively manifesting
surrender by some other means, may they avoid the ultimate sanction
of a war they started, namely death."

Palestinian universities in East-Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza Strip
(all founded after 1967 when Israel took over these territories
from Arab Jordan and Arab Egypt):
Azhar University of Gaza
University (6 campuses in Jerusalem and West Bank)
American University of Jenin
University of Bethlehem
University of Birzeit
University of Hebron
Community College of Jerusalem
University of Gaza
National University of Nablus official website: "In
1977 it became An-Najah National University
with Faculties of Arts and Science. In 1978 An-Najah National University
joined the Association of Arab
Universities as a full member. The
university grew and advanced from this point
forward constructing auditoriums, a library and a student center
until it was declared a "closed military area" by the
Israeli authorities in 1988. It was reopened in 1991 and has been
since. It has 10 Undergraduate Faculties, 30 Masters, and one Ph.D
program. The university has also added
nine professional and technical centers, such as the Center for
Water and Environmental Studies and the Center for Urban and Regional
Planning. An-Najah National University continues
to advance and develop and offer the highest level of secondary
education in the West Bank. The
foundation has already been laid for its new campus,
which will house the School of Medicine, a Teaching Hospital and
its existing Science and Technical Faculties, and An-Najah hopes
to expand to hold more than 10,000 students by the new millenium.”
You got it? From 1948-1967, under the occupation of the Arab Jordanian
brothers, Nablus got no university. But since 1977, under Israeli
rule, Nablus not only got their first university but “the
university grew and advanced”. Needless
to say, while tens of thousands of Arabs study at Israeli universities,
no Jew can safely enter Nablus:

WAR. Blind Faith. Muslims, like Jews and Christians, must own up
to problems in their holy book (Canadian-Iranian author Irshad Manji,
Wall Street Journal, May 20, 2004): " ... religion is no
innocent bystander in the violence perpetrated by Muslims. ... modern
Muslims ought to come clean about how our sacred script informs
terror. One can argue that certain passages are being politically
exploited--and, indeed, they are. The point is, however, that they
couldn't be exploited if they didn't exist. We shouldn't underestimate
the impact of this Koranic loophole, which reads, "except as
punishment for murder or other villainy in the land." Osama
bin Laden had it in mind when he announced a jihad against America
in the late 1990s."

May, 14, 2004): "THE murder of Nick Berg, a 26-year-old
American businessman, by a group of Islamist terrorists in Iraq
continues to send shock waves through much of the West. What has
impressed most people is the fact that the
terrorists cut Mr. Berg's head in the way that sheep are beheaded
at the annual Feast of the Sacrifice. Berg is, of course, not the
first to be murdered in such a gruesome manner. Nor, alas, is he
likely to be the last. For the cutting of heads (in Arabic, qata
al-raas) has been the favorite form of Islamist execution for more
than 14 centuries."

Al-Awsat Editor: Iran's Nuclear Weapons a Threat to Arab and Islamic
Countries. (MEMRI, Oct 10, 2003): An editorial titled "Yes,
We Fear Iran's Uranium," authored by Abd Al-Rahman Al-Rashed,
editor of the London-based Saudi daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, appeared
in the newspaper's October 8, 2003 issue. The following are excerpts
from the editorial: The Primary Target: Pakistan. "If
you want to be foolish, you have to believe that Iran is producing
its nuclear bomb in order to attack Israel; you'll turn into a complete
idiot if you believe it's producing it in order to confront the
U.S. The Iranians are enriching uranium to produce nuclear weapons
aimed, essentially, at its neighbors, mainly Pakistan. However,
the danger encompasses the other neighboring countries as well,
such as Saudi Arabia, Oman, Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and
Azerbaijan, which share with Iran a land border of 5,400 km and
a sea border of 2,400 km."

(PDF, 110 KB): "Immigration
and terrorism are linked; not because all immigrants are terrorists
but because all, or nearly all, terrorists in the West have been
immigrants (we define immigration in its broad usage as signifying
visitors and sojourners as well as settlers- see chapter I). In
Western countries jihadism has taken root mainly thanks to Muslim

Bush Reaffirms Resolve to War on Terror, Iraq and Afghanistan (White
House, Mar 19, 2004): "There is no dividing line -- there
is a dividing line in our world, not between nations, and not between
religions or cultures, but a dividing line separating two visions
of justice and the value of life. On a tape claiming responsibility
for the atrocities in Madrid, a man is heard to say, "We choose
death, while you choose life." We don't know if this is the
voice of the actual killers, but we do know it expresses the creed
of the enemy. It is a mind set that rejoices in suicide, incites
murder, and celebrates every death we mourn. And we who stand on
the other side of the line must be equally clear and certain of
our convictions. We do love live, the life given to us and to all.
We believe in the values that uphold the dignity of life, tolerance,
and freedom, and the right of conscience. And we know that this
way of life is worth defending. There is no neutral ground -- no
neutral ground -- in the fight between civilization and terror,
because there is no neutral ground between good and evil, freedom
and slavery, and life and death. The war on terror is not a figure
of speech. It is an inescapable calling of our generation. The terrorists
are offended not merely by our policies -- they are offended by
our existence as free nations. No concession will appease their
hatred. No accommodation will satisfy their endless demands. Their
ultimate ambitions are to control the peoples of the Middle East,
and to blackmail the rest of the world with weapons of mass terror.
There can be no separate peace with the terrorist enemy. Any sign
of weakness or retreat simply validates terrorist violence, and
invites more violence for all nations. The only certain way to protect
our people is by early, united, and decisive action."
if it's not Israel they loathe? (Paris-based Iranian Amir Taheri,
JP, Dec 2, 2004): "There are no free elections or reliable
opinion polls in the Arab world. So no one knows what the silent
majority really thinks. The best one can do is rely on anecdotal
evidence. On that basis, I came to believe that the Palestine-Israel
issue was low down on the list of priorities for the man in the
street but something approaching an obsession for the political,
business, and intellectual elites. ... The reason why the elites
fake passion about this issue is that it is the only one on which
they agree. In many cases, it is also the only political issue that
people can discuss without running into trouble with the secret
Arab jihadi pirates of 1784 (Arab-American journalist Joseph Farah,
WND, Apr 27, 2004): "Most Americans probably think the
Islamic terrorists declared war on the United States Sept. 11, 2001.
Actually, it started a long time before – right from the birth
of the nation. In 1784, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin
Franklin were commissioned by the first Congress to assemble in
Paris to see about marketing U.S. products in Europe. Jefferson
quickly surmised that the biggest challenge facing U.S. merchant
ships were those referred to euphemistically as 'Barbary pirates'.
They weren't 'pirates' at all, in the traditional sense, Jefferson
noticed. They didn't drink and chase women and they really weren't
out to strike it rich. Instead, their motivation was strictly religious.
They bought and sold slaves, to be sure. They looted ships. But
they used their booty to buy guns, ships, cannon and ammunition.
Like those we call "terrorists" today, they saw themselves
engaged in jihad and called themselves 'mujahiddin'... America was
struck with its first mega-terror attack by jihadists. In the fall
of 1793, the Algerians seized 11 U.S. merchant ships and enslaved
more than 100 Americans. When word of the attack reached New York,
the stock market crashed. Voyages were canceled in every major port.
Seamen were thrown out of work. Ship suppliers went out of business.
What Sept. 11 did to the U.S. economy in 2001, the mass shipjacking
of 1793 did to the fledgling U.S. economy in that year."
from America’s first war against Islamic terror (Joshua E.
London, NRO, Dec 16, 2005): Take, for example, the 1786 meeting
in London of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman
Adja, the Tripolitan ambassador to Britain. As American ambassadors
to France and Britain respectively, Jefferson and Adams met with
Ambassador Adja to negotiate a peace treaty and protect the United
States from the threat of Barbary piracy. These
future United States presidents questioned the ambassador as to
why his government was so hostile to the new American republic even
though America had done nothing to provoke any such animosity. Ambassador
Adja answered them, as they reported to the Continental Congress,
“that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it
was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have
acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right
and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and
to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every
Musselman who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

repeatedly used chemical weapons against Iraqi Kurds in 1988 and
against Muslim Iran in 1983-1988
Egyptian troops invaded Arab Yemen from 1962 to 1967 fighting Arab
Yemeni insurgents and Saudi Arabian troops. Egypt's
use of WMD against Arabs in Yemen was the first use of chemical
weapons in the Middle East:
