Some of you might remember that Maj Stephen Coughlin lost his job at the DHS through MB operative Hesham Islam, a mole who managed to smear him as a ‘racist-bigot-Islamophobe’ and some kind of ‘crazy Christian zealot with a pen’.
Here some links to the backstory: Â Pentagon Taqiya: Hesham Islam’s Big Lies
Pentagon aide Hasham Islam remains a key adviser on Muslim affairs to Mr. England and faced no punishment or even criticism for recently calling Joint Staff counterterrorism analyst Stephen Coughlin a “Christian zealot with a pen” because of his views on the linkage between Islamic law and terrorism.
The more that’s uncovered aboutÂ Hesham Islam, the Muslim at the Pentagon that got the specialist on Islam, Steve Coughlin,Â firedÂ the more terrible questions that are raised.
A message from Vlad Tepes:
It is about an hour and sixteen minutes, and I know that no one has that kind of time. So I am asking you, please, make some coffee, send out for a pizza, whatever you have to do to be able to sit for a while and watch this. It is of critical importance to all peoples and nations who have any illusions of being able to maintain individual liberties, free speech, the right to criticize irrational religious authority, at least islamic authority, and any sense of equality before the law. TheÂ OICÂ based at the UN has made huge strides in its ability to get nations like the USA for example to try and do an end-run around its own 1st amendment rights and create programs to humiliate and shame US citizens who dare speak out against Islamic atrocities and retrograde beliefs.
This really is an important document. This brief was given to key people within the US admin but various Obama appointees made sure that it was no longer available. So some really excellent people in the US of A arranged to have it brought to you directly since it was no longer able to get where it was designed to go.
Please also spread this link as far and wide as you can. This one counts.
An offer you can’t refuse:
For Prophet, if not for pleasure, I often dip into the website Khilafah.com, whence came the hadith of theÂ shoelace of fire.Â Today I stumbled across theirÂ Islamic Khilafah, A Manifesto for Change.Â Aimed at fellow Muslims rather than gullible infidels, this shamelessly advocates a worldwide Islamic Caliphate as the “only solution”. But while refreshingly free fromÂ taqiyya,Â it nevertheless borrows the clichÃ©s of politics and management-speak, not least in the title of one of its chapters:Â An Effective Visionary Executive.Â Lest the silliness of this title give false reassurance â€“ aren’t the Muslims as absurd, and as harmless, as our own corporate drones? â€“ it pays to remember that words we think we know do not mean the same in Islam. Â Here are a few examples:
“Innocent” as in “Muslims are forbidden from killing innocent people” = “Muslim”. Non-Muslims are never innocent.
“Peace” = “submission”, that of the whole world to Islam
“Knowledge” as in the much-quoted “Seek knowledge even as far as China” = religious knowledge. In practice, since only one religion is allowed, this means Koranic knowledge
“Freedom” as in the Arab Spring to which theÂ Manifesto for ChangeÂ pays tribute = freedom from secular rule and all opposition to Islam. Effectively, free rein â€“ and free reign â€“ to Islam.
Armed with my inner English to Muslim-English dictionary, I read the first paragraph of theÂ Effective Visionary ExecutiveÂ chapter:
The Shari’ah puts extensive executive powers in the hands of the Khaleefah thus empowering him to make radical and far-reaching decisions in the long term interests of the people. There is a contractÂ (bayah) between the people and the Khaleefah, where the people pledge obedience and the Khaleefah pledges to rule by Islam.
A contract? Something has been lost in translation.Â BayahÂ means something like “oath of allegiance”. To translate it as contract, with all the latter word’s connotations of common law, fair dealing and Englishness, is incompetent at best, or plain disingenuous.
A contract, as any schoolboy ought to know, requires offer, acceptance, intention to create legal relations and consideration. Does the empowered Khaleefah pass these tests?
Well, there is an offer, to be sure, one that the offeree cannot refuse, on pain of death or crippling poll-tax and humiliation. An invitation to threat, perhaps?
Acceptance? Indeed â€“ in the form ofÂ inshallah fatalism.Â What cannot be cured must be endured.
Intention to create legal relations? Certainly if one takes the pledge one had better intend it, as there is no way out other than death.
Consideration? That’s the stumbling block. Islam has no consideration, whether of feelings or of peppercorns.
In conclusion, the Islamic contract fails on the fourth test, and will always be frustrated.
