NO WAY AROUND IT: Jihad’s Common Core is Islam

Written by Audrey Russo on October 1, 2014

America loves good guys vs. bad guys…we have since our inception. So it goes to follow that we love crime dramas…the good guys search out the bad guys through witnesses, clues and evidence.

The American public loves this, but not Progressives (the great equalizers and cowards of society), who now control the government. These individuals live in a quixotic world where they actually live out their fantasies…and the rest of us live with the tragic consequences.

Enter Islam…the 1,400 year old ideology that remains the bully in the schoolyard…
The Islam I’m speaking about here is the one Muhammed practiced and taught. The one shared by scholars such as Raymond Ibrahim and Robert Spencer…and the one lived by former Muslims Nonie Darwish, Reza Kahlili and IQ al Rassooli.

That is the Islam of Muhammed. The one that was responsible for:
— April 1983 – Bombing of Embassy in Beirut (17 Americans killed).
— October 1983 – Bombing of Marine Barracks (241 Marines killed in their sleep).
— March 1984 – CIA Station Chief William Buckley kidnapped and murdered.
— September 1984 – Bombing of U.S. Embassy annex northeast of Beirut (24 Americans killed).
— October 1985 – Hijacking of cruise ship Achille Lauro (murder of Leon Klinghoffer, a 69-year-old wheelchair-bound American tourist).
— December 1988 – Bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 (259 people on board were killed, along with 11 on the ground).
— February 1993 – World Trade Center Bombing (6 killed).
— June 1996 – Khobar Towers bombing (20 killed, 372 wounded).
— November 1997 – The Luxor Massacre at Deir el-Bahri (62 killed).
— October 2000 – Attack on the USS Cole in the Yemeni port of Aden. (17 American sailors killed, 39 injured).
— September 2001 – 4 planes hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda hijackers: two planes crashed into World Trade Center and one into the The Pentagon. (3000 killed).

Since 2001, there have been almost 24,000 deadly terrorists attacks globally. And an old slaughter tactic of Muhammed’s has been revived (for the media’s cameras) by ISIS: Beheading. This particularly barbaric method of murder has made its way to the heartland of America (Oklahoma), where one innocent woman was beheaded by a Muslim, at her workplace…and another was threatened by a Muslim with beheading, because she was Christian.

The worst part: Our leaders, who have sworn to protect us from enemies in our homeland …are ignoring the most critical factor in protecting the people they serve, from additional attacks. They refuse to look at the evidence, the clues, the witnesses OR the experts concerning the common core of ALL these savage attacks on innocent civilians. That core is the ideology that was practiced and taught by Muhammed: Islam.

And NO dreamy narrative, nor poetic portrayal can wash away the blood-stained history of this crude culture and its barbaric ways. It is the core of the current miasma that changed everything for free people, on September 11th.

We can’t change this ideology…but we CAN change the leaders who fail to protect us from the results of its dictates. Let’s begin there.

Shalom through strength…
