THE FAKE SHEIK CARRIED A GENUINE FLAG
Harry Richardson is a long-time student of Islam and author of best seller, "the Story Of Mohammed - Islam Unveiled', http://thestoryofmohammed.blogspot.com.au
A follower of the Prophet Mohammed came to Sydney today, but he didn’t come to see the sights or enjoy the famous Australian welcome. No, this man came to deliver a message to the people of Australia; it is a message that most of us probably don’t want to hear.
Human beings are strange creatures. When they don’t want to hear a message, it is extraordinarily difficult to make them listen. Unfortunately, if we want to continue to enjoy the lifestyle our forefathers bestowed on us, the time has arrived when we can no longer continue to bury our heads in the sand.
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilisation, it expects what never was and never will be." So said Thomas Jefferson, one of the most intelligent people who ever lived. So let’s get back to the message. It was written on a flag, held up against the window of the Lindtt Café by a hostage. The flag, as an ignorant talking head on TV assured us has some Arabic writing on it, “but it is just a general expression of faith.”
The “Arabic writing” is in fact known as the “Shahada” which is not JUST an expression of faith. Roughly translated, the Shahada says “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger.”
In order to become a Muslim, all that is required is to repeat this sentence three times in Arabic.This phrase was brought to the world by Mohammed. It was not simply a message however, but a threat. Islam means submission and the world is expected not just to heed this message, but to SUBMIT to it.
At first, those who refused to submit were threatened with hellfire in the afterlife. Once Mohammed gained political power however the threat became far more real. Those who would not submit were attacked with a new and deadly form of warfare, Jihad.
Jihad was, and is, total warfare. Relentless and unrestrained, it knows no limits, no boundaries. It accepts no pleas and takes no prisoners (except when it suits). The aim of jihad is devastation, destruction, unbounded misery.
Jihad seeks to inflict the greatest hurt imaginable on those who refuse to submit. These people (non-Muslims) are referred to in the Koran as “Kaffirs,”and are described as Allah’s most hated creatures.
In the Hadith of Muslim (1:33) Mohammed said, "I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Mohammed is the messenger of Allah,
When the Kaffirs can finally take no more of Jihad, they submit and recite the Shahada. By doing so, they agree to abide by Mohammed’s rules which Muslims believe were given to him by Allah.
And what do the rules tell the new Muslim to do?
From the Koran: 9:5 When the sacred months [by ancient Arab custom there were four months during which there was to be no violence] are passed, kill the Kaffirs wherever you find them. Take them as captives, besiege them, and lie in wait for them with every kind of ambush. If they submit to Islam, observe prayer, and pay the poor tax, then let them go their way. Allah is gracious and merciful.
9:38 Oh, believers, what possessed you that when it was said, “March forth in Allah’s cause [jihad],” you cling heavily to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the next? Little is the comfort of this life compared to the one that is to come. Unless you march forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and He will put another in your place. You will not harm Him at all, for Allah has power over everything.
Australian Islamic leaders of course expressed horror that the Shahada flag could be associated with any form of violence, seemingly unaware of what is written in their holy books. Mohammed lived in what is now Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Arabian flag also has the Shahada written across it in Arabic and includes a sword (pictured).
Jihad is not always in force however. When Islam is weak, Muslims are allowed to make temporary peace, known in Arabic as “Hudna.”
In recent years, Islam has been very weak. During WW1, Western technology destroyed the Caliphate (Islamic Empire) which was dismantled by the Western victors. The majority of Islamic lands then came under control of the West. After WW2, these lands were given independence but generally fell under the control of military strongmen who kept militant Muslims on a tight leash.
Today, most of these strongmen have been routed (often with the help of ignorant American and Western Governments) and the new Islamic rulers have declared a resumption of Jihad. Whether or not most Muslims agree, many have taken up the call.
So far, Australians have only had a tiny taste of Jihad but if history is any guide, we will be dining out on it regularly in the near future. I stated in my book, “You cannot beat Jihad with force, it is too powerful; don’t even bother thinking about it, the army will not save you from Jihad.” So what to do?
Only three things are needed to defeat Jihad: Knowledge, Truth and Courage. Knowledge abounds all over the internet; it is just a Google search away. My own book is available to read online for free.
Truth can be determined with minimal effort. Islam’s holy books are now widely available and many learned commentators have broken them down into an easily understandable form. Courage is a personal decision. Should I keep my head down? Should I just pretend that everything is OK? Should I parrot the “few radicals” story, or should I stand up and demand that people investigate the truth?
Only a couple of months ago, one courageous Australian sent a copy of my book to every member of the Federal Government. Thousands more wrote to them asking that they read it. What do we have to do to get them to take notice?
In a word, persistence, never ever give up. Contact anyone you know who has influence. Send them a link to my book or other sources of information which explain the truth about Jihad.
Post on social media, write to newspapers, contact leaders, not just in the Government but in the police, the army, schools, private industry, churches, or anyone you can think of who has influence.
Whatever happens, do not let them silence you with petty name calling, Islam is not a race and its critics are not racist. I have conviction that Australians will rise to the challenge. For too long we have allowed ourselves to be silenced.
The evidence is now too hard to ignore however and I believe the time is fast approaching when Australians will finally embrace the truth, and the truth will set us free.
