Creeping Islamism: State Dept endorses handbook calling jihad noble

We cannot defeat Islamo-fascism as long as we refuse to admit its existence. America, and indeed the West as a whole, must come to the understanding that strategically we are fighting an ideology. However, if we continue to dismiss and make apologies in order to create some sense of comfort for ourselves — then we will never be able to achieve success in degrading or destroying this vile, savage and barbaric enemy. And that is why this latest development in the U.S. State Department is utterly disturbing.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “The U.S. State Department endorsed on Wednesday a controversial anti-terror handbook published by Canada’s Muslim community that refers to jihad as “noble” and urges law enforcement to avoid using terms such as “Islamic extremism.” You can review it here.

“The handbook, published earlier this month by two Canadian Muslim community organizations, was so controversial that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) flatly rejected the manual and ordered its officers not to use it. Yet the State Department’s official anti-terrorism Twitter feed, called Think Again Turn Away, appeared to endorse the controversial handbook on Twitter and linked to a positive article about it.”

We’ve reported previously about the efforts of “Muslim advocacy” groups to purge training materials being used by the FBI, Department of Defense or local law enforcement agencies which have been deemed offensive and anti-Islamic. Not to mention the UN Resolution 16/18 as promoted by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) that promotes criminalization of deemed anti-Islamic speech.

But here in America, the Obama administration can’t seem to condemn the Ft. Hood jihadist attack by Nidal Hasan and still refers to it as “workplace violence.” If you read the after action report on the Ft. Hood shooting, you’ll find no references to jihadist,” Islamic terrorism, Islamic extremism or Islamism – the report was completely whitewashed. And don’t forget the FBI’s quick reaction to claim that the vicious beheading of the American woman in Moore, Oklahoma was again “workplace violence” — regardless of the jihadist proclamations on the beheader’s Facebook page. And have you heard anything else about the self-proclaimed jihadist attacks by Ali Muhammad Brown — his last victim being 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin in New Jersey.

It’s disconcerting that our own State Department would accept a handbook from the Canadian Muslim Community that was rejected by the Canadian RCMP.

The Free Beacon reports, the RCMP ultimately decided to reject the book, citing its “adversarial tone.” “After a final review of the handbook, the RCMP could not support the adversarial tone set by elements of the booklet and therefore directed RCMP Manitoba not to proceed with this initiative,” the police force said in a statement posted on its website. The handbook itself recommends that “intelligence and law enforcement officials” should “avoid terms such as ‘Islamist terrorism’, ‘Islamicism’, and ‘Islamic extremism’ in favor of more accurate terms such as ‘al-Qaida- inspired extremist,’” according to one section of the handbook, which still bears RCMP’s official logo.

I suppose we need a lesson in the Arabic terminology and the principle regarding lying. There are two forms of lying to non-believers which are permitted under certain circumstances: taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.

So why is it that our own government is accepting the lies as purported by the Islamic community of Canada regarding our law enforcement efforts? Is this just another example of the Islamist sympathies of B. Hussein Obama?

The Beacon says “the term “jihad” also is not appropriate to use, according to the handbook, a copy of which was first published by Canada’s CBC News. “Do not refer to terrorists as ‘jihadis,’” the manual states. “This only emboldens them and gives them a legitimate status in the eyes of the vulnerable. Terrorism is not jihad. Jihad is a noble concept in Islam.” Other sections tell the Muslim community that they are under no obligation to speak to the police about individuals who may be suspected of having extremist ties.”

So we just dismiss it when jihadists tell us they are committing jihad because this handbook refers to it as a “noble concept” in Islam? In the Obama administration State Department’s endorsement of this handbook, has this administration now surrendered to the whims of the cultural jihadists and their stealth efforts – or simply condoning them?

Terrorism analyst and reporter Patrick Poole told the Free Beacon that “the State Department’s tweet of the controversial handbook is a sign of what he called its disjointed policies. “From letting members of designated terrorist groups into the White House, backing the Muslim Brotherhood in the so-called ‘Arab Spring’, responding to demands of Islamic groups to purge counter-terror training materials, to endorsing extremist Islamic clerics like Sheikh Bin Bayyah only then to have to apologize, and now this,” he said. “To describe it as a series of missteps is a gross understatement. This is a coordinated campaign of counter-terror catastrophe.”

One of the questions I continue to receive along my travels is, “do you believe what Obama is doing is based upon incompetence or intention?” I carefully consider the inquiry and search for trends to analyze and assess, and this is not incompetence — this is the intentional agenda of a progressive socialist who is an Islamist sympathizer dedicated to fundamentally transforming America.

These are not mistakes, missteps or misspeaking. This is the desire of a narcissistic collectivist ideologue whom hapless Americans allowed to be created, foolishly elected and then stupidly reelected. The question is, are we too far gone to turn back? Perhaps we’ll know in about 26 days.
