It takes a nation to protect the nation

POSTED BY Albert

 

Muslims worldwide are in a “rage” over the deployment of American forces in foreign lands. Islamic extremists are in a rage over cartoons that lampoon a holy figure. Muslims are in a rage over lack of benefits Western societies deny them when they emigrate there, even while calling for the overthrow of these same governments. Muslim extremists blow up innocent children because they are enraged over societies that worship a God other than their own. Well, excuse me, but I'm in a rage over “Muslim rage.”

If my count is correct, the last several times we have deployed American troops, it has been on behalf of Muslim countries or populations (First Gulf War to free Kuwait, Kosovo, Bosnia, Somalia, the overthrow of Saddam, humanitarian assistance to Indonesia, the Philippines, etc). Do we hear a resounding cry of thanks for protecting and assisting these beleaguered populations? No, in fact, what we hear is that the U.S. is the “Great Satan,” bent on some “anti-Islamic crusade.”

I am in a rage over political leaders who deny that the Holocaust occurred, who provide support for the destruction of Israel, or pursue an “Islamic nuclear bomb.” I am tired of so-called religious figures who preach a doctrine of hate, bigotry, and fanaticism, and who summon the faithful for a Jihad against Western civilization. I am upset with “moderate” Arab leaders who ignore the problems of Islamic extremism when such problems do not threaten their own regime, and have encouraged the export of terror.

We hear accusations that the United States is insufficiently sympathetic to cultural differences between the Judeo-Christian West and the Islamic world. Not sympathetic to what? To a culture that imprisons women, forcing them into virtual servitude to their male masters? To political systems that venerate rule by a “theocracy” that oppresses anyone who dares speak against the regime? To fanatical religious teachings that turn children into suicide bombers and mothers into screaming maniacs shouting praise to Allah that her sons have died while blowing up innocent women and children in Israel?

Perhaps we also are guilty of suggesting that those who have labored under authoritarian regimes — Arab, Persian, Indonesian, or whatever — deserve to have the right to freely choose their own political system, to be able to express views that differ from the prevailing political orthodoxy, or to allow women the freedom to pursue careers and participate openly in daily life. We are charged with trying to “export democracy,” believing that, heresy of heresies, where political freedoms exist, tolerance prevails, and compromise is possible.

If these are sins, then count me among the “guilty.” We should not apologize for our support for the concept of governing under the rule of law, rather than the absolute whim of self-anointed Mullahs. We should have no shame in preaching the virtues of a society that extols freedom of religious choice, of the right to speak freely on controversial subjects, and that deplores hatred and bigotry.

We must not underestimate the nature of the threat posed by “Islamo-fascism.” It represents what has correctly been labeled the “clash of civilizations.” It is a threat that will not be mollified by appeasement and tepid responses. It is a challenge that must be met by firmness, resolve, and unity, by our society as a whole, not just by a few soldiers sent to distant lands to combat the threat. This is the consummate struggle between two ways of life, two ideologies, two cultures. Are we ready?

I am in a RAGE as well (for all the same reasons). The dumb ass lefties and crying hearts letting them get away with everything. Where were those crying hearts on September 11? Maybe they were just crying for the terrorists. Where were they when the Bali bombings happened? Where were the crying hearts when a whole stack of children were raped and then murdered in Beslan? Where were they when those school girls got beheaded in Islamnesia the so called "moderate" muslim country? WHERE WERE THEY??? Oh I'm sorry I forgot muslims are just victims and everything they do is everyone else's fault. AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With the so called clash of civilizations I just hope it would hurry up and start already because right now there's a good chance we'll win. 20 to 50 years later when we're outnumbered 1,000 to 1 in our own countries run by muslim presidents, prime ministers and so on...... The chance that we once had will forever be gone. Why are western governments so corrupt, stupid and gutless? Goodbye civilization and it was nice knowing you while you were there.

I agree.  The best we can do is try shock 'the masses' out of their complacency.

In May I believe Geert Wilders is releasing FITNA 2.
The idea is to show the life of the murderous pedophile Moohamood in all it's disgusting truthfulness. We can but hope that the "blind" followers of this cult see it for what it really is over and above what they think it is.

 

Remember, Jihad is gay.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
