Reflecting on ABC Justifications

by Steven Shamrak (comments on ABC online article)

Some Western and Muslim apologists for Islam are trying make justifications and clarifications in order to present ISIS as a fringe of the Muslim religion. Often the “silent majority” is mentioned, which is suspiciously silent. At the same time, imams and mullahs, even in the Western countries, are reluctant to openly condemn ISIS, the same as they have not come forward with condemnations of Al Qaida, Boko Haram, Jemaah Islamiyah, Islamic brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah – the list is too long!

They claim that Islamic State is representative of true Islamic teachings. The Australian official ABC news service, supposed to be balanced and unbiased according to the law, but in fact infested by leftist anti-Western stooges. Let’s review what they write and brain-wash Australian tax-payers with:

“The ideology of the Islamic State, to which the media typically refers with the initials ISIS, which stands for "the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria", is based on a complex system of fallacies that cut the sacred texts from their context, and on a series of devious stratagems that select from the corpus of the law what satisfies their twisted minds.”

Does it include countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, most of Afghanistan and a big part of Pakistan, where Sharia law is widely practised and enforced by beheading, cutting limbs and severe punishment by lashing? Are all of them inhabited by “twisted minds”? If so, good addition!

Another Muslim justification is: “The actions of ISIS contradict the Sharia, their claims to a caliphate are invalid, and fighting against them is an obligation for those in the region in order to dismantle their criminal entity.”

They do not actually say that ISIS is evil and is against teaching of Islam, but that the organisation has wrongly made: “claims to a caliphate”!

“The strength of Muslims is not in their numbers or material resources, but rather in their belief, humility and obedience to Allah Almighty.” Lest despair arise over the proliferation of this criminal group, I bear glad tidings to Muslims that victory over these Khawarij (enemies of the Caliphate) is imminent. Whoever dies at the hands of this group is the best of martyrs, and whoever remains patient shall be rewarded and shall witness victory.

This statement has another hidden message to Muslims, which advises them to be patient, but has the same intention and motivation. It tells potential “martyrs” to stand by and act later in order to reap a bigger reward and witness the victory of Islam! By referring to Khawarij, so-called apologies for Islam actually told Muslims in the West that victory over enemies of the Caliphate - Christians, Jews and all other infidels - is coming!

It looks like ISIS has the same goal as Muslim leaders in the Western countries, as well as Wahhabi rules of Saudi Arabia, who have been actively financing Islamic terror organisations, Islamic studies in universities around the world, especially in the West, and building mosques to justify future expansion of Islam! And the cynical part of the message is that these so-called moderate Muslim leaders are using the Western media to deliver their hidden militant Wahabi message!

“The distance between ISIS and the noble qualities of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) is as vast as the distance between the east and the west.”

They made this ‘lip service’ statement, which is immediately complimented by:

The followers of ISIS are destroying the religion from within, replacing the corpus of knowledge and principles of legal judgments with the words of ignorant men.”

As I wrote ISIS use the same Saria laws as the Saudi Arabia, but Islamic apologists worry mainly about divisiveness of the Islamic State, which kills not just infidels but Shi’a Muslims and members of other brands of Islam.

I just wonder when will the members of the Western left realise that they are the primary target of the any self-respecting Islamic movement. All of them hate not just the Western style democratic liberalism, but even more the godless commies, socialists, homosexuals, feminists etc! Have you got the message?

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Many politically oriented Face Book and Yahoo groups let people vent out their  frustration. Sometimes I feel that those groups are created by governmental or special interest organizations to reduce the buildup of and anger in order to prevent anti-Islamic ‘radicalization’ of the Western population. In other word – keeping the ugly status quo – ‘Activities vs ‘Accomplishment’!

"Binational" Scare-Mongering!

US Secretary of State John Kerry has set off a furor in Israel by suggesting that Israel was destroying itself as a Jewish state. Kerry told a conference on Israeli affairs in Washington that through its continued occupation of the West Bank, Israel could make it impossible to partition the land between Jewish and Palestinian states. He said the alternative would have to be a "binational state" in which Jews and Palestinians live together in one state, ending Israel's Jewish majority. (While the Western countries invite enemies in, Israel has a better alternative – removal of all enemy population from Jewish land!)

Child Education – the PA Style

Some 4,000 plush toys of rock-throwing men dressed in Palestinian garb were intercepted Tuesday at the Haifa port by Israeli authorities, who said the dolls were headed for the Palestinian Authority and were part of an incitement campaign. (This is another violation of incitement agreement with Israel, which has never been honored by the PA!)

European Idiots will Never Change!

The EU ambassador to Israel, Lars Faaborg-Andersen, explained that the terror campaign against Europe by ISIS in Europe cannot be compared to the terror that is directed at Israel by Palestinian Arabs and should not be met by force. (In other word, Jews could be killed by anti-Semites in Europe and any Arab enemies in Israel but must not defend themselves!)

Arrow 3 Hit Target in Space

Israel’s upgraded Arrow ballistic missile shield passed a full interception test on Thursday, hitting a target in space meant to simulate the trajectory of the long-range weapons held by Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, the Defense Ministry said.

Russia – Friend or Enemy of Israel?

Russia has begun supplying S-300 air defense systems to Iran. The S-300 is a series of initially Soviet and later Russian long range surface-to-air missile systems, first deployed by the Soviet Union in 1979, designed for the air defense of large industrial and administrative facilities, military bases, and control of airspace against enemy strike aircraft. (Before the system becomes operational, Israel needs to take  decisive action against the Iranian nuclear program.)

Enemies Support an Intifada to End all Intifadas

An opinion poll among the Arab residents of Judea, Samaria and Gaza found that an overwhelming majority supports continuing the ongoing terror wave to the bitter end. A full 72% said they support continuing the "Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Intifada," as it has been termed, until it achieves its "goals". The goal of the intifada terror war according to 48% of the Arabs is the "liberation of Palestine," indicating the conquest and occupation of all of Israel. No less than 44% of the Arab public expressed support for an armed intifada terror war using guns, 18% gave support to stabbing attacks, and 14% supported attacks throwing rocks at Israelis. (When will the Israeli government realise that only the removal of all enemy population from Jewish land will bring peace to Israel? There are no “moderates” among them!)

 Alchemy - Gold Mine in a Technion Lab

Single gold crystal has been “grown” for the first time in the world by scientists at the Technion, Israel Haifa. Single crystals have multiple advantages resulting from the absence of the nuclear boundaries characteristic of ‘normal’ crystals - mechanical strength, high resistance to heat and enhanced conduction of electricity and heat. (It could be a future of electronics – superconductors!)


Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a senior member of the Saudi monarchy, says he’ll pledge his $32 billion to advance the islamization of America. The Saudis have spent billions already. 80% of the mosques build in America are Saudi funded. Islamic groups working to impose the sharia are largely funded by the Saudis. (The WAHABI prince is not going to spend a cent to promote peaceful forms of Islam!)

Quote of the Week:

“Unexamined life is not worth living!”Socrates, Greek philosopher – When will the Israeli government and politicians, as well as Jewish communities in Israel and the diaspora realise that we were robbed of our rightful inheritance, the land of Israel - Eretz-Israel? And, we are still being discriminated against by Islamo-Christian international anti-Semitic bigots! Two-state solution, giving enemies more Jewish land in a desperate attempt to create the illusion of peace, does not work - removing them from Jewish land will!

Not a Friendly Behavior!

Optional Nuclear Deal

The Obama administration’s State Department has confirmed that the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by Secretary of State John Kerry on instructions from President Obama is a “political” commitment only. It “is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document,” said Julie Frifield, an assistant secretary for legislative affairs in the State Department. And commentators quickly pointed out that means a future president “could repudiate it any time, without violating either domestic or international law.” The deal has largely been rejected by the American people. The agreement involves relief that benefits Iran to the tune of up to $150 billion, and Americans simply aren’t sold on the idea of a trustworthy Iran. (So much given away for nothing! Iran is still lying but the US remains eager to lift sanctions.)

The US is ‘Willfully’ Being Deceived

Five days before the deadline for implementing the deal with the West: Intelligence officials let on that Iran is not meeting its obligations to dismantle its nuclear program.

What Nuclear Agreement?

US fumes at Iran’s reported ballistic missile test. Iran tested a ballistic missile last month. It was the second such test since the nuclear agreement in July. (Iran is ‘undermining’ Obama’s anti-Israel agenda! Like ISIS, Iran is interested in the destabilization of world peace.)

US Gave Hamas Fundraising Front $100,000

The US Agency for International Development (USAID), a taxpayer-funded aid organization, is giving a $100,000 federal grant to an Islamic charity banned in Israel for giving aid to Hamas and other terrorist organizations. (Another ‘Israel-friendly’ gesture!)

Anything Goes to Gain Iranian Petro-Dollars!

The push by the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany to end the investigation of the Iranian nuclear program is being launched despite a report from IAEA chief Yukiya Amano, which concluded that Tehran did work related to nuclear arms up to 2009.

Is Anti-Israel Bigotry Prerequisite for a Job?

President Obama has appointed second-generation anti-Israel activist, and former Iran deal negotiator Robert O. (Rob) Malley as his ‘senior adviser on the counterinsurgency campaign against ISIL.’ Malley knows much about terrorism as his dad was close friends with Palestinian terrorist Yasser Arafat (For the record, both Arafat and Malley were born and raised in Egypt)
