ORIGINAL POST - Sept. 10, 2011 - "When is Enough Enough?"
( Did you know Muslims have kidnaped Americans for ransoms of GOLD, not Religious Conversions sold us in the slave trade since 1784? Not many do.)
>>> In Remembrance and Tribute To All Women, Children and Men Of The World That Have Been Taken From Us by Somali Islamism, Religion, Piracy and Muslim Jihad Attacks << 1784 to 2011 >>Those Who Ignore History Are Condemned<<<<While many of you are remembering the 10 th anniversary of September 11, 2001, now on September 11, 2011 you may pay grace, tribute, remember and memorialize that date in many ways, one I hope by taking the time to read the following, as I and many others are remembering when it ALL started 227 years ago on October 11, 1784 as the first attack on the United States by Somali Islamism Piracy and Jihad, Muslim World and Islamic Faith first started their attacks on America at sea by kidnapping crews and passengers for slaves or ransom, known later as to become the Barbary Wars.
>>>This is how Islam played a very important role in the early stages of the development and the shaping of the United States – Islam was directly responsible for the development of the United States Navy and for the concepts that allowed for its deployment far from our coasts. The American Navy is not a river navy or coastal defense force; it is a global tool of American power whose origins can be traced directly back to an earlier American-Islam confrontation. After the American Revolution, pirates from the Barbary states (Algiers, Morocco) attacked American shipping off the coast of North Africa in the Mediterranean and took the crews.
>>>This piracy against American shipping started in 1784 when the Islamic rulers of these Barbary States demanded payment of tribute from the new country and it was paid, and paid. Then the administration of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison would not accept extortion any longer and undertook the actions that led President Jefferson sent a naval force against the pirates in 1803-05. The Marine Corps were also sent in and after a long overland march, took the city of Tripoli in 1805 (thus “to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Corps hymn). Is the Somali piracy of today related to the Barbary pirates of the early 19th century? When then Ambassadors Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with the Ambassador from Tripoli in 1785, to try and reach a solution to the attacks against American shipping and crews they were dragged into a dark world in which we are still today.
>>>When they inquired by what right the Barbary states preyed upon American shipping, enslaving both crews and passengers, America’s two foremost envoys were informed that “IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE KORAN", that all Nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon whoever they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise” as still known to be believed to this day.
>>>The Barbary piracy was based upon the doctrine of Islam, calling for endless war against the unbeliever everywhere, including at sea.
>>>To Muslims in the heyday of Barbary piracy, there were, at least in principle, only two forces at play in the world: the Dar al-Islam, or House of Islam, and the Dar al-Harb, or House of War. The House of Islam meant Muslim governance and the unrivaled authority of the sharia, Islam’s complex system of HOLY LAW. The House of War was simply everything that fell outside of the House of Islam — that area of the globe not under Muslim authority, where the infidel ruled. For Muslims, these two houses were perpetually at war — at least until mankind should finally embrace Allah and his teachings as revealed through his prophet, Mohammed.
>>>If the United States was unable to fight the pirates, they would be forced to continue to pay extortion to the Barbary States, a kind of high seas jizya. Jefferson immediately determined to fight. When he became president he was able to implement the plans that he had formulated after diplomacy to resolve Barbary piracy had failed. And are we not in the same position now? During a phone conversation with a journalist prior to the attack against them by US Navy SEALs to free the captured American sailor, one of the Somali Jihadist Pirates said, “We never kill people. We are Muslims. We are marines, coastguards — not pirates,” one said. Not quite marines, not quite coastguard, at least not in the American sense of the terms.
>>>Paying the ransom would only lead to further demands, Jefferson argued in letters to future presidents John Adams, then America’s minister to Great Britain, and James Monroe, then a member of Congress. As Jefferson wrote to Adams in a July 11, 1786, letter, “I acknowledge I very early thought it would be best to effect a peace thro’ the medium of war.” Paying tribute will merely invite more demands, and even if a coalition proves workable, the only solution is a strong navy that can reach the pirates, Jefferson argued in an August 18, 1786, letter to James Monroe: “The states must see the rod; perhaps it must be felt by some one of them. . . . Every national citizen must wish to see an effective instrument of coercion, and should fear to see it on any other element than the water. A naval force can never endanger our liberties, nor occasion bloodshed; a land force would do both.” “From what I learn from the temper of my countrymen and their tenaciousness of their money,” Jefferson added in a December 26, 1786, letter to the president of Yale College, Ezra Stiles, “it will be more easy to raise ships and men to fight these pirates into reason, than money to bribe them.”
>>>When he became the 3rd President, Jefferson took action, and the United States Navy was sent to deal with the Barbary Coast pirates, which they did.
>>>When Jefferson became president in 1801 he refused to accede to Tripoli’s demands for an immediate payment of $225,000 and an annual payment of $25,000. The pasha of Tripoli then declared war on the United States. Although as secretary of state and vice president he had opposed developing an American navy capable of anything more than coastal defense, President Jefferson dispatched a squadron of naval vessels to the Mediterranean. As he declared in his first annual message to Congress: “To this state of general peace with which we have been blessed, one only exception exists. Tripoli, the least considerable of the Barbary States, had come forward with demands unfounded either in right or in compact, and had permitted itself to denounce war, on our failure to comply before a given day. The style of the demand admitted but one answer. I sent a small squadron of frigates into the Mediterranean.”
>>>We can trace the development of the US Navy directly to Thomas Jefferson’s interaction with jihadist pirates. In an address to the parliament of Turkey, President Obama was right about the “Islamic faith” having “done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country,” but probably not in the way that he had intended. The development of our national defense capabilities are fundamentally linked with an American conflict with Islam in 1805. John Quincy Adams didn’t have to deal with the Barbary States directly as president, but his father John Adams did. Considered one of the most brilliant men to sit in the White House, JQ Adams is particularly perceptive about Islam. His warnings on the matter ring as true today as they did more than 100 years ago. The Islam that Adams discusses is the same Islam we see today.
>>>John Quincy Adams possessed a remarkably clear, un-compromised understanding of the permanent Islamic institutions of jihad war and dhimmitude. Regarding jihad, Adams states in his essay series,
>>>..he (Muhammad) declared undistinguished and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind…The precept of the Koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God.”
>>>Confirming Adams’ assessment, the late Muslim scholar, Professor Majid Khadduri, wrote the following in his authoritative 1955 treatise on jihad, War and Peace in the Law of Islam :
>>>Thus the jihad may be regarded as Islam’s instrument for carrying out its ultimate objective by turning all people into believers, if not in the prophethood of Muhammad (as in the case of the dhimmis), at least in the belief of God. …The universality of Islam, in its all embracing creed, is imposed on the believers as a continuous process of warfare, psychological and political if not strictly military.”
>>>>>>>The Second Barbary War of 1815
>>>Shortly after departing Gibraltar en route to Algiers, Decatur's squadron encountered the Algerian flagship Meshuda, and, in a battle off Cape Gata, captured it. Not long afterward, the American squadron likewise off Cape Palos captured the Algerian brig Estedio. By the final week of June, the squadron had reached Algiers and had initiated negotiations with the Dey. After persistent demands for re-compensation mingled with threats of destruction, the Dey capitulated. By terms of the treaty signed aboard the Guerriere in the Bay of Algiers, 3 July 1815, Decatur agreed to return the captured Meshuda and Estedio while the Algerians returned all American captives, estimated to be about 10, and a significant group of European captives were exchanged for about 500 subjects of the Dey along with $10,000 in payment for seized shipping. The treaty guaranteed no further tributes and granted the United States full shipping rights.
>>>There is a certain bizarre justice here that our Navy ships were on hand to effect the release of an American ship captain through military action against Somali pirates likely affiliated with Islamism because of events that occurred with other Islamist pirates more than 200 years ago. When you hear in the mainstream press pundits and commentators saying that the Somali piracy is “unprecedented”, don’t believe it because it is not so. And don’t believe that our current struggle with political Islam is also unprecedented.
>>>This is a conflict of 1400 years. Since 9/11 some of us have accepted this truth. Long before our generation, other Americans struggled with similar matters. Our founding fathers fought the jihadists of the Barbary States and came to know Islam through their jihad against innocent unbelievers. By 1830 John Quincy Adams had not forgotten the lesson. We must learn the same lesson again; then, never forget it. Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it. If we today choose to ignore the lessons of history we are simply condemned – we will have no opportunity to repeat.
>>>In the seventh century of the Christian era a wandering Arab, of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combing the powers of transcendent genius with the preternatural energy of a fanatic and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth.
>>>Adopting, from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God, he connected indissolubly with it the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguished and exterminating war as part of his religion against all the rest of mankind. The essence of his doctrine was violence and lust; to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature.
>>>The Barbary pirates were 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 were simply a North African warrior caste involved in an armed jihad — a mainstream Muslim doctrine. This is how the Muslims understood Barbary piracy and armed jihad at the time, and, indeed, how the physical jihad has been understood since Mohammed revealed it as the prophecy of Allah.”
>>>Between these two religions, thus contrasted in the characters, a war of more than twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the ex-tincture of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute are encouraged to furnish motives to human action, there never can be peace on earth and good will toward men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him.”John Adams, 1830 –John Quincy Adams, “Christianity—Islamism.”
>>>Today, we are dealing with the same Islam. Islam is considered perfect, unchangeable, unchallengeable, by adherents. It is the perfect word of the perfect Allah, and carried to the world by the perfect example of humanity for all Muslims to emulate, Mohammed. History has returned, again.
>>>Mosque at Ground Zero in New York City / 'CONQUERED LAND'
>>>So time and time again win I attempt to discuss this topic, don't attack me, expand your knowledge. The Koran's believers are here at war with ALL infidels and they are here to stay and they are NOT going away! Why do you think they wanted to build a Mosque at ground zero in Manhattan, New York City? ...Why?....So they could claim it as 'CONQUERED LAND' as that is where they dropped the Twin Towers and they can now possess it! Maybe not with "Deed in hand" but in the name of their religion and Allah and "Own It In Their Minds, Hearts and Souls". And thank God a few good people in New York got it, and caught it! ....But now a judge has reversed the "Motion in Limine". A "Motion in Limine" is a motion made before the start of a trial requesting that the judge rule that certain evidence. NOW they WILL have DEED IN HAND! My God people, correct me when I'm wrong, but for Lords sake, believe me when I'm right.
>>>>>>>Defining the word "Dhimmitude"
>>>Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam. (Such as Ground Zero in NYC)
>>>The ObamaCare bill is the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States. Muslims "could be" specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be "gambling", "risk-taking" and "usury" and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this. How convenient.
>>>So when I could have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate and even accounts receivable, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan and pack will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims! This is Dhimmitude.
>>>Dhimmitude serves two purposes: it enriches the Muslim masters AND serves to DRIVE conversions to Islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to Islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y and Z types who have no moral anchor to begin with. If you don't believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem whatsoever for those to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver. "Sure, they'll become a Muslim if it means free health insurance, no taxes and no penalty by mandate." And do not think they wouldn't. For centuries man has ALWAYS been willing to change his faith just for the love of a woman, you think U.S. kids on the inner-city streets with zero faith to begin with wouldn't become Muslim for profit? Please, Rhetorical question!
>>>>>>>Muslim Appointees Security and Presidents Appreciation of Islamic Faith
>>>Obama appointed two devout Muslims to homeland security posts! Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).
>>>In an address to the parliament of Turkey, US President Obama said that the relationship between the United States and the “Muslim world” is an important one. “In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical,” the president said. During the same address the President stated “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country.”
>>>Mr. Obama neglected to explain in what way[s] Islam has the shaped and improved the United States. The founding fathers of the United States did not share Mr. Obama’s appreciation for the “Islamic faith”. In fact Jefferson, Adams, JQ Adams, and Benjamin Franklin were all were deeply concerned about the dangers that Islam represented to the new nation. Our ongoing experiences with the 21st century version of the Barbary pirates off the coast of Somalia, most recently when an American freighter captain was freed from pirates captivity by the US Navy, illustrates a great deal about our prior relations with the “religion of peace” and how our previous leaders reacted appropriately. There is little discussion in the mainstream press about the link between Somali Islamism, piracy, and jihad, but the linkage is there nonetheless!
>>>>>>>Never should "Sharia Law" be recognized in America!
>>>I did this in part one night when I was doing The Huffington Post & The Wall Street Journal EUROtechnologies on-line, stating why Sharia Law should never be accepted in the United States so lets look briefly of why.
>UK Muslim Honor Killing: Wife & Daughters Burned Alive
>Sharia: Islamic Supremacist Justice
>Islamic" punishments: cutting off hands, crucifixion
>Sharia, according to the " Koran" amputation of limbs and crucifixion
>Islamic Honor Killing in China: Husband Beheads Wife Because She lived "against Islamic law"
>Father Murders His Two Daughters In "Honor" Killing. Texas
>The recent tragic murders of two young British Muslim women have once again focused media and public attention on the subject of honor killings.
(And there are pages and pages and pages more of the above examples)
You/me/we as a country do not want this here, I ASSURE YOU! And to those that chose to come to the U.S. and live by our countries freedom's and benefits should abide by OUR countries laws as our Constitution states it protects all men equal and we do not need a side-bar of religious beliefs interfering with U.S. law!
If we are to recognize Islam's law one must recognize the Koran, therefore, it would not just be one law in particular (case law), it would be the entire Koran as that IS the Islamic Law. Furthermore, as we in America have our "rules of quality" we would therefore, in all fairness have to recognize ALL nationalities and foreign laws. Now, there being 194 countries and more than 7000 languages just how would out judicial system begin to implement or coordinate such a task! Lord knows the U.N. cannot do it!
God Bless America and all the women, children and men of the world that have been taken from us under the fanatical acts and views of a self-proclaimed religious superiority of all women and children and the non-believing man.
>>>>>>>I have found much more information than I expected that goes back to the beginning of the Koran and Muslims connection to the United States in 1784 and some points in between and they are facts, not my opinion.
>>>So after 88,250 pints of American blood shed with 5825 U.S. Service men killed thus far, 3,000 human loss on September 11, 2001, and with the countless children, women and men since 1784 ......when is enough enough? -J.D.Gragg 9 / 10 / 2011
