It takes a nation to protect the nation

I realise this room is for historical evidence of imperialism, but muslims have not given up their aim to dominate the world.  And they are most clear about this when it comes to the domination of majority muslim countries, the re-creation of the Caliphate, and their claims that all "previously muslim land" must be re-conquered.

Since the advocacy of sharia is now the mainstay of Al Qaeda, we can say that those advocating sharia in western countries are indistinguishable from the most extreme muslims.

Zawahiri calls on Muslims to implement sharia

Al Qaeda has released a statement written by Ayman al Zawahiri this past summer in which the terror chieftain outlines several goals for Muslims to strive toward. While failing to mention the toll al Qaeda's attacks have taken on Muslim civilians, Zawahiri says that the Muslim Ummah faces the "most vicious Crusader campaign in its history," according to a translation provided by SITE Intelligence Group.

Zawahiri does not call on Muslims to strike the US. Instead, al Qaeda's emir says that "secular and Crusader forces" are attempting to prevent Muslims from implementing sharia law. And to combat this supposed anti-Muslim coalition, Zawahiri argues, Muslims should first work "to liberate the occupied Muslim lands" and reject "any treaty or agreement or international resolution that grants the disbelievers the right to take over the lands of the Muslim."

In this context, Zawahiri cites the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, "Russia's takeover of the lands of Chechnya and the Caucuses," India's presence in Kashmir, Spain's control of formerly Muslim lands, and "China's takeover of East Turkistan."

Second, Zawahiri says that Muslims should be ruled according to sharia, while rejecting all other bases for law. Zawahiri specifically rejects the "international order" and the United Nations.

The remaining several goals outlined by Zawahiri focus on similar themes, calling on Muslims to "establish a Caliphate."

The revolutions ushered in by the Arab Spring are unfinished, according to Zawahiri. Muslims must be made aware "of the necessity of being ruled by Sharia and adhering to the judgments of Islam," Zawahiri says, according to SITE's translation. And the people must "continue in their revolution until they uproot the remains of the corrupt regimes, and purify their lands of external humiliation and internal corruption."

Zawahiri's focus on so-called "local" concerns is not new. Al Qaeda has always fantasized about acquiring power in the heart of the Muslim world.

The call to implement sharia immediately has become a common rallying cry for al Qaeda, as well as jihadists who are either ideologically or operationally linked to the terror group. It provides a point of contrast to the Islamist governments that have risen to power since early 2011. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, for example, has advocated a more gradual approach to implementing sharia.

Mohammed al Zawahiri, Ayman's younger brother, is one of several al Qaeda-linked jihadists who have called upon the Brotherhood to set aside all forms of law other than sharia, which is often poorly defined.

During a recent interview with Cairo's Al Masry al Youm, the younger Zawahiri was asked what he wants Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi to do. "I demand [that Morsi] and all Muslims to hold on to Allah's creed, to be pious, to know that they are accountable, to strive to avoid the forbidden and to apply Islamic Sharia," Mohammed al Zawahiri responded. Sharia "has the solution to all our problems," he claimed.

Other prominent al Qaeda-affiliated ideologues in Egypt have made the same demand.

Al Qaeda has attempted to rebrand itself in the wake of the Arab Spring as the true defender of Islamic law. In Yemen, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula adopted the name Ansar al Sharia as a new brand for winning converts. Similarly, al Qaeda-linked organizations have risen under the Ansar al Sharia banner elsewhere.

Zawahiri's call for Muslims to implement sharia is no accident. Al Qaeda's brand has been damaged after years of indiscriminate violence inside the Muslim world and the group is attempting to remake its image as the true protector of Islamic law.

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)"
