In Los Angeles, California the apathy to hear about the danger the entire world is facing from radical Islam can be described in one word, pathetic. No matter with whom I spoke in Los Angeles to have Dr. Mordechai Kedar, one of the world’s leading experts on Islam, to come present the problems we are facing from the radicalization of Moslems, no one wants to host him and invite their community to learn what they must know, no matter how frightening it is or how interesting it may be.
It is stunningly amazing that politicians care the least about the people they represent and by far they worry the most about their seat in Congress, in a Parliament or Knesset. They can be simply categorized as inept for the job they were elected to perform.
More so, it is frightening that Western governments, and that includes the American government, do not want to talk about Islam so they speak in codes and hints calling the horror we are facing by any deceiving term rather than the only term, RADICAL ISLAM.
Hal and Shirley Gutterman, residing in Palm Desert, California, hear the alarm chiming bells. Hal invited and hosted Dr. Kedar, a research associate at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan University, Israel (besacenter.org), currently on a speaking tour in the USA and Canada, to speak to his community and they came in great numbers.
This past weekend I was invited to attend Dr. Kedar’s speaking engagements in Palm Desert. I accepted the invitation because I wanted to hear if there is any news he can tell us that we do not know already. And he did.
First, Dr. Kedar spoke to the curious members of the local JNF Chapter in a private home in Rancho Mirage. The following day Hal and Shirley hosted a Q&A breakfast meeting at their lovely home. But the key event was that evening at Temple Sinai, Palm Desert, where a crowd of around 300 people arrived, rather anxious, to hear Dr. Kedar first-hand on the topic, “Is radical Islam at war with the world, looking for answers.”
Definition of Islam
“There are no variations of Islam; Islam is one religion, there is one Islam. There are variations of Moslems, from extreme radical murderers to modern, peaceful westernized ones,” Dr. Kedar began his lecture. “We are in a WWIII. Our society is corrupt and on the decline and confused. It may not be the conventional wars we saw taking place during the 20th century, with tanks, warships and air force planes, nevertheless, it is a world war,” Dr. Kedar continues.
“Islam attacks all of us, military and civilians alike, all over the world, using our democratic war methods, laws and political tactics against us. It is a game changer from yesteryears’ wars. This war is launched by radical organizations, not countries, taking advantage of international laws to combat civilization in any method they invent. For instance, during the last war – Protective Edge – Israel fought with the terror organization Hamas in Gaza, in the summer of 2014, Hamas could fire 5,000 rockets at Israeli civilian towns and there was not as much as a condemnation from the international community. However, as soon as Israel acted back, in self-defense, the entire world came out shouting, ‘disproportionate response,’ ‘Israel is causing genocide,’ and ‘international laws were violated.’ Such attacks and the ability to respond can only happen to a small country, such as Israel, which is under the magnifying glass; the greater powers, the bigger countries, have the luxury to do as they wish without hearing a murmur from the international community. These radical Islamic organizations are taking advantage of the civilized world’s laws to destroy small democracies.”
“Take Europe as an example, where Moslems are implementing their culture and are destroying European civilization, using the Europeans code of democratic law and multiculturalism ethos. Europe’s urgent need to change its negative national demography to a positive one allowed millions of Moslems to arrive to the continent. However they exported their Moslem homeland to Europe. It was unbeknown to the Europeans, or their miscalculation and ignoramus, that immigration, the ‘Hegira,’ that translates to Muhammad’s departure from Mecca to Medina, in 622 AD, prompted by the opposition of the merchants of Mecca to him has marked the consolidation of the first Muslim community, is the Moslems’ first choice as a way to implement Islam.”
“After 1973 oil crisis, brought upon by the oil rich Arab-Islamic states, as a result of the Yom Kippur War between Israel and her proverbial enemies, the Arab states, the Europeans surrendered to the oil suppliers. They have agreed to allow a certain number of Arabs a visa to Europe. To the Arabs that was implementing their Hegira. The plan, after the first family member settled, the family will arrive and then other family members, under the family unification laws, a process that has no ending. The Europeans got caught in their web of open immigration and lack of knowledge as to how important the Hegira is to Islam, the spread their religion out of the boundaries of Moslems states.”
“Our Western societies live on the basis of freedom and tolerance and our multiculturalism is allowing everyone to keep his or her tradition. However, Moslems do not tolerate freedom and have no tolerance for others; they ask you to tolerate them but they do not tolerate our culture. Hence, the Islamization of Europe today, which, in several generations, will end up being a Moslem continent.”
On Iran and Hegemony
Hegemony is leadership or dominance, by one country or social group over others.
“Let us move to speak about Iran,” Dr. Kedar somewhat changes the subject but still sticking to tolerance, moreso moving to speak about the most urgent subject of the day, the relations between Israel and the USA concerning Iran. “The world cannot tolerate a nuclear Iran. Why? Because Iran wants to restore worldwide Islamic hegemony. The question we all need to ask is: Is Obama, who apparently is thinking that he will stop Iran’s ambitions to acquire nuclear weapons in ‘La La Land’?”
You, the reader, need to find your answer to this enigma.
“Iran’s regime must face trial, not negotiations,” Dr. Kedar shortens the subject on futile talks the P5+1 are holding for months with Iran.
Remedies the West may now be able to implement
According to Dr. Kedar the answer to the Islamic State (IS) terror is getting rid of these terrorists, with boots on the ground. There is no other option. More so having responsibility, especially media responsibility which he sees to be a culprit. “Our media encourages Islamo-terror atrocities by showing these events on the screen and they do more to scare us. When these Islamo-barbarians behead a Westerner, Western media is profusely reporting the event, giving these beasts FREE publicity. They are helping instilling fear in the public arena, more so, encouraging the perpetrators to repeat their acts over and over again, as we see is happening.”
Dr. Kedar suggests the media agree not to show the gruesome acts.
Subsequently, he believes, the terrorists will realize that when no one knows about what took place it will reduce their vicious killing acts.
“Leadership has responsibility just like the media. Commonsense is built on knowing the material, meaning knowledge, but Western leaders do not possess that knowledge,” Dr. Kedar points at the West’s failed leaders.
“Our life style, our freedom of speech has a price, but the media has to be responsible. Report but not ad nauseam. Do not gift the terrorist with publicity and thus encourage their terror acts,” Dr. Kedar basically ended his lecture, leaving an open ended invitation to continue educating the public on the most burning issues of the beginning of the 21st century. As one lady told him at the end of his lecture, “You have simplified so much, which our media and our politicians have no way to clearly explain to us.”
To second Dr. Kedar’s views, here is a 4-Star Admiral James A. Lyons, who also hears the alarm bells:
The 4-Star Admiral, the former Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, the largest single military command in the world, and “the father” of Red Cell, the Navy’s anti-terrorism units, claims that the transformation of America has been in full swing ever since 2008, the year Obama was elected, based upon his campaign promise to “fundamentally transform America.” He slams Obama for allowing the Moslem Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, to infiltrate all of USA National Security Agencies. And that begs the question, where does it all end when the USA State Department is assisting the Moslems to take over the country?
Measures To Apply To Protect Ourselves
Western societies must understand that any nation that does not know how to defend itself is doomed to disappear, a culture that is unable to preserve its values is marching proudly into the showcase of a museum exhibit and a society that does not bring the next generation into the world is not going to exist in that next generation. “Right now the obvious is showing in Europe but the United States is 15 years behind Europe,” Dr. Kedar assures us. (Worthwhile read: Changing the Rules of the Democracy Game in Europe – Mordechai Kedar )
On the danger of Islam in the United States Dr. Kedar leads us to read this eye opener article: Shari’a and Violence in American Mosques, by Mordechai Kedar and David Yerushalmi, Middle East Quarterly, Summer 2011, pp. 59-72. http://www.Meforum.Org/2931/american-Mosques. He suggests, to monitor mosques, close any mosque where incitement is preached and strip anyone of his or her American citizenship if he or she went to fight for and with IS, and these are just starting measures to protect our society.
To defend itself, Western society needs to relearn what democracy is. It is the Moslems who use our democratic system against us. After 9/11 the State Department decided to befriend the Moslem Brotherhood and that is alarming, when they call for the destruction of America.
We are at war; the Islamo-Nazis have raised the flag of war against the entire civilized world and there is nowhere to hide.
