The Islamic war on the West is a complete fraud

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | President Barack Hussein Obama made it official last week. He, in effect, declared the war on terror over -- promising to end our presence in the Mideast that resulted from previous Islamic egregious acts of terror and invasions of countries friendly to the USA.

Osama bin-Laden declared war on America and its allies in two fatwas—one issued on August 23rd 1996 and the other February 23rd, 1998. Actually the second order falsely claims America and its allies declared war on Islam. The fatwas are resplendent with explanations and accusations of recent events in Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Israel. The orders also include referrals to Islam's ancient hatreds such as Crusaders, AKA Christians and Zionists, AKA Jews. Israel has been discredited as the legitimate home of the Jews by these Quran huggers.

There are a couple of problems with Osama's timeline:

American merchant ships were attacked in the Mediterranean in 1785, much to the shock of America, who--at the time--was about the size of a pimple on an elephant's arse.

In Quran verses Sura 5:20, 5:21, 7:137 and 7:144, either Muhammad or Allah declare Israel as the legitimate home of the Jews.

"From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli"

Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, curious as to why our ships were being attacked by these then unknown peoples, got a rude awakening when he met with the Muslim Ambassador in the area, Abd al-Rahman. Jefferson was curious as to why we were being attacked when we had nothing but friendship to offer all mankind who had not attacked us. Rahman explained that the Quran, their Bible, looked at things differently. He claimed the Prophet Mohammad decreed that anyone who didn't acknowledge the Muslim belief must either be killed, be enslaved or pay a jizra (tax.) He claimed that it was the Muslim's right—even duty—to make war on nations refusing this recognition of Islam and that they should capture or kill with Allah's blessing and approval. Al-Rahman also stated that those Muslims who died would surely go to Paradise.

Adams lobbied to pay them the 10% demanded because, as he rightly predicted, if we refused to pay them we'd be fighting them forever. He felt the fledgling country of America couldn't stand up to the rugged pirates of the Barbary States.

Years later, under President James Madison, the issue reached a boiling point. In 1801, Jusuf Karamanli, the Pasha of Tripoli was angered by the American reluctance to pay the 10% Jizra. He declared war on the United States for no apparent reason other than the dictates of the Quran.

So, our first war after our revolution with England was against the Muslims. Was there justification based on our conquering of Muslim countries? Were the Native Americans the lost tribe of Islam? Were American citizens out on the streets crying out against Islam? I got it! Maybe there was an anti-Mohammad video on YouTube!

If you answered, none of the above, you'd be correct—but ineligible to serve as Obama's new NSA head. Ambassador Rice has accepted that promotion as payback for hustling the lie on five political shows in one Sunday.

How that campaign slogan resonated: bin-Laden is dead and GM is alive. I know that screed must be resonating amongst the families who lost their sons in Benghazi.

By the way, when you win a war, doesn't the other side have to acknowledge losing it? I've been a little remiss in my news gathering. It's tough to take advantage of CNN and MSNBC with all the Obama scandals being revealed on Fox News. So I must assume that Muslim Terrorists all over the world have now surrendered and accepted peace with us infidels.

Please look me up on Facebook or Twitter me the links.

Besides, Obama is on to the real enemies of America, returning veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq, conservatives applying to the IRS, the press, and anyone who uses a cell phone in the USA.

Well, it's about time!

I feel much safer now.
