Play to win or play to please?
Needless to say, I was quite disturbed by the recent article in the Heritage, “Radical Syrian cleric comes to Central Florida—a wolf in sheep’s clothing?”
Disturbed, why was I disturbed? Well, that’s easy to answer. The first thought was why did he even have to write such an article? What was the purpose? Why rile everyone up? Why stir up the pot ? Well, the pot needs to be stirred up in my opinion. This community has their heads in the sand so to speak when it comes to recognizing and accepting the fact that there is a threat to our community from Muslim extremists. They have no idea what the real world is like.
I certainly don’t disagree with what the article had to say. It’s unfortunate that it had to be said. I feel that the majority of your readers are really not educated when it comes to the Islamic “religion.” Please note the quotation marks around the word religion. Most non-Muslims are unaware that Islam is in reality a theo-political movement rather than a “religious” movement. It is a totalitarian way of life. In the writings about the Prophet Mohammed, in the Holy Koran, in the Hadith, the Sira, and the Sunnah over 80 percent deals with what today we would consider political teachings or instructions about interacting with non-Muslims. One of the terms often used in Islam when the Muslim population is considerably less powerful than the non-Muslim population is Taqiya. This is the mandate to be untruthful, to lie or deceive, while still in a weaker position than the non-Muslims until that time when the Muslim population is numerically or physically capable of taking control over the non-Muslims. The best demonstration was the early Muslim treaty with the Hashemite clan of the Quraysh in the city of Mecca. As soon as Mohammed and his followers were powerful enough to conquer the clan of the Quraysh, they immediately and unilaterally broke the treaty and destroyed their adversaries. A really great example of this is Yasser Arafat’s comment after he signed the Oslo Accords with then Israeli Prime Minister Rabin. When asked why he signed the accords, Arafat said “Remember Quraysh.”
Today we are faced with the same situation. Can we really trust what the local Muslim leaders, like Imam Musri, say? Mr. Kornman certainly describes very plausible situations involving one of the areas most respected Imams. There are many quotes that can be found in the Koran to describe approved devious actions of “believers” against the “non-believers.” Basically, it’s play “their game” until you are strong enough to play “our game.”
Just read about what is taking place in Europe. France already has reached “the tipping point” with a Muslim population of just over 10 percent. Here in the U.S. we are not there yet. Germany, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, just to name a few, are feeling the wrath of the Refugee Invasion. But, the plan is in place to take action here at home. It is already starting. Look up the Muslim Brotherhood Project. This is a verifiable document that was accidentally discovered back in 1981. Look for yourself.
A really good example of this working in our own community is the weekly radio program involving dialog between a rabbi, an Imam and a Christian clergyman. Political correctness personified! Two of the three are being totally played by the third. They play to tie, he plays to win. While I believe interfaith dialog is good and necessary, it must be an “honest” and “open” dialogue to be worthwhile. I would suggest to the Orlando Jewish leadership they reach out to someone like a true Muslim reformer, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. The Muslims have been playing this game for 1,400 years. They play to win. We play to please.
