It is more than just the video of Berg's beheading, its a lot more, it has more to do with the origins, history and present trend of Islamic
extremisms. I was just reading the "insider report" and couldn't agree any more by the statements of Larry Abraham. Althou I do not agree 100%
with everything he says his main points are worth to consider, althou he should check his spelling more frequently too, it is a good read.
"THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS AND
THE GREAT CALIPHATE
As we watch and listen to all the Democrat Party candidates running for the nomination of their party, it is tantamount to enduring the Chinese water
torture. The blah, blah, blah goes on and nothing of value comes out except the pain of listening to the same nothingness over and over again. I wont
take the time or space to repeat what you have heard so many, mind numbing times over the past months but what you have not heard is crucial.
I must also fault President Bush and the administration spokesmen for not telling the American people what they really need to know about this war.
If they dont do that sometime between now and November it may cost them the election.
It Did Not Start on 9/11
The war we are now facing did not begin on September 11, 2001, nor will it end with the peaceful transition to civilian authorities in Iraq, whenever
that may be. In fact, Iraq is but a footnote in the bigger context of this encounter, but an important one none the less.
This war is what the Jihadists themselves are calling the Third Great Jihad and are doing so within the framework of a time line which reaches back
to the very creation of Islam in the Seventh century and their attempts to recreate the dynamics which gave rise to the religion in the first two
hundred years of its existence.
No religion in history grew as fast, in its infancy, than did Islam and the reasons for this growth are not hard to explain when you understand what
the world was like at the time of Muhammads death in 632 AD. The Western Roman Empire was in ruins and the Eastern Empire was based in Constantinople
and trying desperately to keep the power of its early grandeur while transitioning to Christianity as a de facto state religion. The costs to the
average person were unbearable as he was being required to meet the constantly rising taxes levied from the state along with the tithes coerced by the
Church. What Islam offered was the carrot or the sword.
If you became a convert, your taxes were immediately eliminated, as was your tithe. If you didnt, you faced death. The choice was not hard for most
to make, unless you were a very devoted martyr in the making. At the beginning, even the theology was not too hard for most to swallow, considering
that both Jewry and Christianity were given their due by the Prophet. There is but one God-Allah, and Muhammad is His Prophet, as was Jesus, and the
pre-Christian Jewish prophets of the Torah (old testament). Both were called children of the book, the book being the Koran, which replaced both the
Old and New testaments for Christians and Jews.
With this practical approach to spreading the word Islam grew like wild fire, reaching out from the Saudi Arabian Peninsula in all directions. This
early growth is what the Muslims call the first great Jihad and it met with little resistance until Charles Martel of France, the father of
Charlemagne, stopped them in the battle of Tours in France, after they had firmly established the religion on the Iberian peninsula. This first
onslaught against the West continued in various forms and at various times until Islam was finally driven out of Spain in 1492 at the battle of
The second great jihad came with the Ottoman Turks. This empire succeeded in bringing about the downfall of Constantinople as a Christian stronghold
and an end to Roman hegemony in all of its forms. The Ottoman Empire was Islams most successful expansion of territory even though the religion
itself had fractured into warring sects and bitter rivalries with each claiming the ultimate truths in the ways of the Prophet. By 1683 the Ottomans
had suffered a series of defeats on both land and sea and the final and failed attempt to capture Vienna set the stage for the collapse of any further
territorial ambitions and Islam shrunk into various sheikhdoms, emir dominated principalities, and roving tribes of nomads. However, by this time a
growing anti-western sentiment, blaming its internal failures on anyone but themselves, was taking hold and setting the stage for a new revival know
has Wahhabism which came into full bloom under the House of Saud on the Arabian peninsula shortly before the onset of WWI. It is this Wahhabi version
of Islam which has infected the religion itself, now finding adherents in almost all branches and sects, especially the Shiites. What this sect calls
for is the complete and total rejection of anything and everything which is not based in the original teachings of The Prophet and it finds its most
glaring practice in the policies of the Afgani Taliban or the Shiite practices of the late Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran. Its Ali Pasha (Field Marshall)
is now known as Osama bin Laden, the leader of the third Jihad.

The Leftwing initiative, Political Correctness and Our Will to Win
Within our own country we are witnessing and almost insane application of political correctness. As the barbarism of radical Islam grows more
apparent in the streets of the Middle East from Gaza to Basra, we see a cultural suicide taking place within our own schools and communities.
Our children are being taught from the Koran, our professors are preaching intifadah in their class rooms, and Muslim call to prayer loud speakers
are blaring out from city halls. The more precarious our very existence becomes, the more our liberal brethren embrace their enemies. It is a
Stockholm Syndrome which can only lead to the recruitment of young Muslims who will be willing to duplicate in the West what their co-religionists are
doing in the streets of Israel and the market places of Baghdad. The liberal P.C. crowd say nothing about the silence of the Muslim religious
leadership as it relates to the carnage of innocents but couldnt speak out fast enough against the inspiration supplied to tens of millions of
Christians by Mel Gibsons The Passion of the Christ. They were put off by the movies violence and its alleged fostering of anti-Semitism. Movies
must represent their reality as the real thing moves them not at all. Among liberal Jews in America, hatred of George W. Bush is only surpassed by
their contempt for Ariel Sharon
Let them explain it, I am at a total loss to do so. Maybe they just miss seeing Bill Clinton smooching Yassir Arafat
in the White House Rose Garden.
The Reverend Jesse Jackson is now calling the U.S. guilty of crimes against humanity as he sets out to mobilize the non-Islamic Left. None of the
Democrat leadership says a word in opposition to Jacksons treason or Hillarys attacks on the President and U.S. policy in an Arabic newspaper, while
in London. You can bet that al Jezeera didnt miss a beat in their reporting of both events."
