It takes a nation to protect the nation

Pause for Thought

Shelina Janmohamed:
“I simply love the way EastEnders expresses some of the conundrums of contemporary life. They’re certainly not afraid to tackle some difficult issues, are they? And we Muslims, too, mustn’t be afraid to confront difficult issues, as Muhammad himself says in the Koran.
“And, you know, I’d love it if Ian Beale and Denise Fox (the African) made a go of it together. Though my husband, Mohammed Muhammad, often says, 'Sheila', for that’s what he sometimes calls me, 'will you stop watching that filth!'
“This reminds of a passage in the Koran in which Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, tells us of his love for EastEnders but also warns us against sexual relationships outside of marriage and says that adulterers should be stoned – but that’s the true Inward Stoning; not what’s portrayed in the Islamophobic media.
“I was walking around Birmingham city center yesterday and I came upon a can of one of these energy drinks – Spunt or something. Now I myself never bother with these drinks but I know many who do. This reminds of a passage from the Koran, sura 2, in which Muhammad tells us that Spunt - available from most good Muslim-owned newsagents - is his favourite energy drink. But he also warns against the mindless hedonism that such a drink can bring about. 'We must', Muhammad says, 'take it easy with these energy drinks. That’s what Allah wants from us on here on earth.'
“There’s also lot of debate on the environment these days. I do my bit – as all Muslims should do. I bought one of those energy-saving light-bulbs that light up slowly. And this reminds me of a passage in the Koran, sura 1006, in which Muhammad got Aisha, Praise Be Upon Her, to buy some energy-saving light bulbs from Mecca’s own Audi. But Muhammad also tells us that we cannot live by energy-saving light bulbs alone and neither is environmentalism as important as the Peaceful Jihad. In the Inner Jihad all of us Muslims must do battle – sometimes even force is necessary -  with ourselves in order to rid us of all badnesses.
“See ya!”

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)"
