After eight years of an Administration that refused to put 'Islam' and 'terrorism' in the same sentence, Americans have elected a President who has no qualms about calling a spade a spade – even if it ruffles a few feathers.

The new U.S. President has promised to engage in “extreme vetting” to ensure the safety of Americans from potential terrorist immigrants from Muslim countries. There is even a bill before Congress that would designate the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates as terrorist organizations. That would signal the end of CAIR, ISNA, and other MB organizations – or at least in their current forms.

In response to all of this, have Muslims resolved to lay low for a while or throttle back their militancy? Not at all. In fact, one of the principal organizations of Islamic jurisprudence in the U.S. – the Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America – has issued a fatwa (legal edict) with a militant undertone calling for redoubling piety and adherence to Sharia Law, Islam’s fascistic legal code.

There is no shortage of articles about the “myth of the moderate Muslim” on the Internet. Either these people don’t exist, or they are sadly misunderstood by the Islamophobes. Many Muslims (and their defenders) profess to be moderates who present no threat to Americans.

But there’s no denying there are militant Muslims among them. A militant Muslim is one who has a combative character, intent on advancing Islam. Here are the inconvenient facts:

  • 81 percent of U.S. mosques promote violent jihad against non-Muslims.

Muslims are becoming more and more annoyed when non-Muslims criticize their sacred book, the Quran, or their moral code, called Sharia Law.  However, their campaign to demonize any criticism of Islam as bigotry or “Islamophobia” just isn’t working. Cudgeling socially unacceptable religious beliefs is a long-standing American tradition dating back to the witch trials of Puritans (1692), the doomsday cult of Johannes Kelpius (1708), the polygamy of the Mormons (1849), and the exhumation of corpses by the Branch Davidians (1987). Islam has more socially unacceptable beliefs than any of those other religions.

When confronted with shameful beliefs drawn from the pages of the Quran, Muslims usually run away from their sacred book.  No, they don’t physically run away, but they use any number of ploys to avoid directly discussing the ideological problems.

The pace of Islamic intolerance and terrorism has increased in recent years, much to the alarm of peaceful, nominal Muslims who want nothing more than to enjoy the benefits of secular, democratic societies. The retrograde forces include the Salafists of Saudi Arabia and the fundamentalists of the Muslim Brotherhood – both parties straining to preserve a submissive Muslim base in the event that Muslims gain political strength sometime in the future.  (Ideologue Sayyid Qutb called this abiding with provisional rulings of the Quran until such time that Muslims can implement the final rulings, i.e., jihad.) Now respected Muslims are saying, “Enough is enough”. They are urging Islamic scholars to, once and for all, rid the ideology of its 7th Century calls for perpetual warfare against non-Muslims (jihad) and its draconian Sharia Law. Here is what Muslims are telling to fellow-Muslims:

Muslims sincerely want and need to be following a prophet who models today’s most cherished humanitarian values -- universal equality, civil rights for women, and a faith for all peoples and all times. After all, Islam is now competing in a marketplace of ideologies, some of which actually ensure those values. Unfortunately, it is impossible to reach back into the well-documented history of Muhammad and find those values. So, instead, Muslims have re-written history. Be aware! When Muslims tell you that Muhammad espoused universal equality, equal rights for women, and a “perfected” religion, they may be quoting from a fake “Final Sermon” of Muhammad. Here it is:
