ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION LIKE OTHER RELIGIONS AND A MOSQUE IS NOT LIKE A CHURCH

ISLAM IS NOT  A RELIGION LIKE OTHER RELIGIONS
AND A MOSQUE  IS NOT LIKE A CHURCH
At the root of opposition to mosques that is now beginning to be voiced  around the country is the fear that Islam might just not be the religion of  peace that our misguided political leaders say it is or that Islamic spokesmen  from the Moslem advocacy organizations say it is. People fear that Islam is not  just another religion like Christianity or Buddhism or whatever. These fears are  well-founded; and Islamic scholars are the first ones to tell us that Islam  is NOT a religion like other religions.
For example, Yusuf Qaradawi (the most influential Muslim cleric in the  world today, the spiritual head of the Muslim Brotherhood who is admired by Imam  Rauf of the Ground Zero Mosque project) said: Islam is not a religion in the common, distorted meaning of the  word, confining its scope only to the private life of man. By saying that it is  a complete way of life, we mean that it caters for all the fields of human  existence. In fact, Islam provides guidance for all walks of life — individual  and social, material and moral, economic and political, legal and cultural,  national and international.” 
This “complete way of life” is the all-encompassing Sharia sacred Islamic  law which, among other things, calls for the legal subordination of  non-Moslems to Moslems and of women to men; it requires death for homosexuals,  apostates and blasphemers. And, it calls for eternal war (jihad) against  non-Moslems until Islamic law dominates throughout the world. These doctrines  all come from the Koran and the sayings of Muhammad which are preached and  taught in every mosque in the world, and will be taught in the Ground Zero  mosque.
People need to understand why Islam is unique and not like other religions.  Then they would know that mosques are not like churches because mosques  are centers for the propagation of sharia law. Mosques are  centers for the propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology, and they should be  treated like other centers for the propagation of supremacist, violent and  imperialist ideology, such as the Communist Party or the Nazi Party.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan once famously said, “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets,  the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our  soldiers.”
The most influential Islamic religious authority in the world  today, Yusuf Qaradawi, wrote:

“The mosque at the time of the Prophet was  his propagation center, the headquarters of the state, as it was for his  successors, the rightly guided Khalifas, the mosque was their base for all their  activities political as well as non-political…. the mission of the mosque as  required by correct Islam is not an isolation from the politics… From ancient  times the mosque has had a role in jihad for the sake of Allah, resisting the  enemies of this religion from the invading occupiers. That blessed Intifada in  the land of the prophets, Palestine, started from none other but the mosques,  and it first all came from the minarets and it was first known as the mosque  revolution. The mosque’s role in the Afghan jihad, and every Islamic jihad  cannot be denied.”

It is not religious bigotry to expose the religious bigotry of Islam; it is  ideological self-defense.

Terror Link Downplayed in Courthouse Break-In

Terror Link Downplayed in Courthouse Break-In

‘Pictures of courthouses, water systems’ from around the US found in the van used by five men believed to be Moroccan Muslims.

Five men in their twenties, described as French-Moroccan Muslims, are being questioned by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and by officials of the Department of Homeland Security after they were arrested inside the 120 year old Bexar County Courthouse in downtown San Antonio shortly before 2 this morning, 1200 WOAI news reports.

Officials say three of the men crawled through a window to get into the 120 year old Courthouse, which is a landmark in downtown San Antonio, and theother two were found in a van parked in front of the building.

Inside the van, officials say they found “photographs of infrastructure” including photos of shopping malls, water systems, courthouses and other public buildings which they say were taken in cities nationwide.

“They got travel documents, parking passes, they have been all over the country,” one law enforcement officials who asked not to be identified told 1200 WOAI’s Michael Board on the scene.  “A lot of photographic equipment, a lot of documentation equipment inside their vehicle.”

Officials say the five men entered the country legally on visas from Heathrow Airport in London.  They didn’t immediately know how long the men have been in the U.S., or what places they may have visited.

Officials immediately blocked off a two square block area of downtown San Antonio around the Courthouse, and bomb sniffing dogs fanned out throughout the building.  About two hours later, the streets were reopened, indicating nothing dangerous was found in the building.

“They are going to be held for interrogation by the FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the joint terrorism task force,” the law enforcement source said.

The men are described as in their early twenties.  One law enforcement official said the men told him they climbed to the fourth floor of the courthouse at 2AM “to get a better view of the city.”

There is a military intelligence convention underway at the city’s Convention Center several blocks away, with top intelligence officials including White House officials set to speak, but investigators didn’t say whether there was any connection.

Investigators were tight lipped about the incident this morning.

“All that, coupled with the fact why they can’t explain why they are in the building at 1:22 in the morning raises questions,” the law enforcement officer said.

Herman Cain and the Perfect Storm of 2012

Herman Cain and the Perfect Storm of 2012

By James
Lewis

In 2012 the world will see a perfect storm. This is
one of those few times in history when a year of crisis is
predictable.

Short-term outlook: big ups and
downs.

Long-term outlook: much better.

Why?

1. The Biggest Presidential Election of the 21st
Century:
Will
America pick socialism or freedom?

Uncertainty: max.  Outcomes: huge.

2. Iran
gets nukes and missiles.

What will they do with them?  Nobody knows.

Uncertainty: max.  Outcomes: huge.

Solution: massively accelerate missile
defenses.

Question: will missile defense be an election issue?
(If not, what are elections for?)

3. Saudis prepare for the end of the oil cartel.
OPEC’s demise can be predicted from huge
shale discoveries

around the world from Poland to Montana.  No oil spigot, no cartel.  If the
ecomaniacs manage to hobble U.S. shale development, we’ll get it from Poland and
Canada.  Not even the most radical ecofanatics can stop this development around
the world.  Just think what China will do.  The result: no Hugo Chávez with
Venezuelan oil, and a steep loss of income for Gulf Arabs.  They might even stop
all that hate propaganda against the Wicked West.  In 2012 the markets will
predict lower energy prices without strategic bottlenecks like the Persian
Gulf.

Uncertainty: minimal.  Outcomes: good for the rest of
us.

4. Dictatorships rise
in the Muslim world. 
The phony “Arab Spring” will pop like the bubble it
always was.  Muslim nations have always gone back to dictatorships after
turmoil.  The only question is: will it be a modernizing military dictatorship
or the radical Moos?  Or both?  Pakistan is run by an unstable mixture.  That
system is sometimes called “fascism.”

5. If
the US pulls out of Iraq
, the Iranians will attack and/or sabotage
the third-biggest country in the Middle East.

Uncertainty: max.  Outcomes:
terrible.

Prediction: Obama won’t pull out.

6. The
Eurosocialist stress test
.  Historic socialist budget crises in
Greece, Spain, Italy, and Ireland will pull down German, French, British, U.S.,
and worldwide government budgets.  U.N. funding may be at
risk.

Uncertainty: low.  Outcomes: bad at
first.

7. Federal and state budgets run
dry
ObamaCare gets major surgery, possibly
lethal.  Failure of the European socialist model will affect the United
States.

Uncertainty: moderate.  Outcomes: bad, then good.
(After a bubble, reality sets in.)

Welcome to 2012!  At least the predictable
parts.

So whom do you want to be president during the perfect
storm?

I mean real tornado-speed winds, worse than we’ve seen
since the fall of the Soviet Empire.

If you answered “Obama,” take a cold shower and try
again.  I think “Herman Cain” is more like it.  The reasons are obvious.  (If
they’re not, go here.)

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m in love with Sarah Palin,
personally, and I could go for Anybody But O.  My dream ticket is Cain/Palin or
Palin/Cain.  But both will be under pressure to pick a good foreign policy head
for veep.

How about Palin/Rummy?

That would be a kick.

Newly resurfaced
photographs show President Obama appearing and marching with members of the New
Black Panther Party as he campaigned for president in Selma, Ala., in March
2007. 

BigGovernment.com
posted the photographs
, reporting the images were captured from a Flickr
photo-sharing account before they were scrubbed.

The photos are reportedly featured in a book set to be released tomorrow by
J. Christian Adams, the Department of Justice whistleblower in the New Black
Panther Party, or NBPP, voter intimidation case.

The book is titled “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama
Justice Department.”

Among the people visible in the pictures with Obama is NBPP Chairman Malik
Zulu Shabazz, a defendant in the voter intimidation case that Attorney General
Eric Holder dismissed in 2009.

Is
it any wonder the White House wouldn’t prosecute the New Black Panthers? Read
the newest Whistleblower issue, OBAMA’S DEPARTMENT OF INJUSTICE, and discover
the depths of Washington corruption!

Also present was the Panthers’ “Minister of War,” Najee Muhammed.

While the photos present new evidence of a possible relationship between
Obama and the controversial black extremist group, WND was first to report in
March 2008 that Obama met Shabazz.

Obama speaks from same podium as New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz during
campaign event in Selma, Ala., in 2007 (BigGovernment.com)

 

Speaking to WND, Shabazz
boasted he met Obama when the politician attended the 42nd anniversary of the
voting rights marches in Selma in 2007.

“I have nothing but respect for Obama and for his pastor,” said Shabazz,
referring to Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s former pastor of nearly 20 years.

Shabazz said in 2008 that aside from promoting black rights, he also supports
Obama because he may take what he called a “less-biased” policy on the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“I have hopes he will change the U.S. government’s position toward the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict, because our position has been unwarranted bias.
Time and time again the U.S. vetoed resolutions in the U.N. Security Council
condemning [Israeli] human rights violation. … I hope he shifts policy,”
Shabazz said.

But the extremist added he doesn’t believe Obama could change America’s
policy regarding Israel very much, since, he said, “other, powerful lobbies”
control U.S. foreign policy.

The NBPP is a controversial black extremist party whose leaders are notorious
for their racist statements and for leading anti-white activism.

Shabazz himself has given scores of speeches condemning “white men” and Jews.

The NBPP’s official platform states “white man has kept us deaf, dumb and
blind,” refers to the “white racist government of America,” demands black people
be exempt from military service and uses the word Jew repeatedly in quotation
marks.

Shabazz has led racially divisive protests and conferences, such as the 1998
Million Youth March in which a few thousand Harlem youths reportedly were called
upon to scuffle with police officers and speakers demanded the extermination of
whites in South Africa.

 


Malik Zulu
Shabazz

 

The NBPP chairman was quoted at a May 2007 protest against the 400-year
celebration of the settlement of Jamestown, Va., stating, “When the white man
came here, you should have left him to die.”

He claimed Jews engaged in an “African holocaust,” and he has promoted the
anti-Semitic urban legend that 4,000 Israelis fled the World Trade Center just
prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

When Shabazz was denied entry to Canada in 2008 while trying to speak at a
black-activist event, he blamed Jewish groups and claimed Canada “is run from
Israel.”

Canadian officials justified the action stating he has an “anti-Semitic” and
“anti-police” record, but some reports pointed to what was termed a minor
criminal history for the decision to deny him entry.

He similarly blamed Jews for then-New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani’s initial
decision, later rescinded, against granting a permit for the Million Youth
March.

The NBPP’s deceased chairman, Khallid Abdul Muhammad, a former Nation of
Islam leader who was once considered Louis Farrakhan’s most trusted adviser,
gave speeches referring to the “white man” as the “devil” and claiming that
“there is a little bit of Hitler in all white people.”

In a 1993 speech condemned by the U.S. Congress and Senate, Muhammad,
lionized on the NBPP site, referred to Jews as “bloodsuckers,” labeled the pope
a “no-good cracker” and advocated the murder of white South Africans who would
not leave the nation subsequent to a 24-hour warning.

All NBPP members must memorize the group’s rules, such as that no party
member “can have a weapon in his possession while drunk or loaded off narcotics
or weed,” and no member “will commit any crimes against other party members or
black people at all.”

Obama’s Analysts:Oops! We Put Muslim Radicals in Charge of Libya

Obama’s Analysts:Oops! We Put Muslim Radicals in Charge of Libya

Ben Johnson,The White House Watch

Even as the Obama administration celebrates the
killing of American-born
al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki and his
traitorous friend Samir Khan
in Yemen,its analysts are beginning to admit
their war by decree
in Libya
empowered Islamic extremists bent on exporting jihad
throughout the region. Thanks to Obama’s policies,al-Qaeda-linked radicals may
be pillaging Muammar Qaddafi’s stockpile of weapons and receiving shipments of
contraband from overseas.

In the closest thing to an admission Obama
administration figures lied us into war,Reuters reports:

During the half-year campaign by rebels to drive Muammar Gaddafi from
power,U.S. and NATO officials downplayed fears that al Qaeda or other militants
would infiltrate anti-Gaddafi forces or take advantage of disorder to establish
footholds in Libya.

Since then,however,the assessment of top experts inside the U.S. government
has sharpened.

Former CIA asset and Obama adviser Bruce Riedel summarizes,“There is a great
deal of concern that the jihadi cadre now are going to be exporting
their ideas and weapons toward the east and west.”

This author reported
the cause of their alarm a month ago. The National Transitional Council
(NTC),the body the United States now exclusively recognizes as the official
government of Libya,elected
Abdel Hakim Belhaj commander of the Tripoli Military Council in late August.
Belhaj is the co-founder of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG),which the
State Department designated a foreign
terrorist organization
in December
2004
. The New York Times relates
that LIFG members received “combat experience in Iraq or Afghanistan” —fighting
the United States. Belhaj,who met
Osama bin Laden twice
,now commands 8,000
troops
,Libya’s largest fighting force.

U.S. analysts,who covered up the links the “rebels”have to Islamic
fundamentalists,now worry Belhaj and his LIFG warriors have raided Qaddafi’s
arsenal,despoiling it of anti-aircraft weapons that could one day be turned
against U.S. or NATO planes.

The radicals may not need Qaddafi’s weapons,as other nations in the area are
reportedly replenishing their cache. Rebels in the city of Zintan intercepted a
cargo shipment to Belhaj from the nation of Qatar,which Belhaj insisted
contained food and milk. Those who opened it say it contained weapons. Taking
note of the interference Mohamed Benrasali,a leading figure in the Libyan
government,replied,“We are very sorry the Qataris have taken the decision to
support Belhaj’s brigade. This will backfire on our Qatari friends.”

Despite Benrasali’s tough talk,one suspects the fire will aimed in his
direction.

Qatar was influenced to support the rebels by Sheik Ali Salabi,a Libyan
Islamic scholar who lives in the monarchy….

U.S. met with Egypt Islamists: U.S. diplomat (Muslim Brotherhood)

U.S. met with Egypt Islamists: U.S. diplomat (Muslim Brotherhood)

6:39am EDT

By Edmund Blair

CAIRO (Reuters) – U.S. officials have met members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party, a U.S. diplomat said, after Washington announced it would have direct contacts with Egypt’s biggest Islamist group whose role has grown since U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak was ousted.

Washington announced the plans in June, portraying such contacts as the continuation of an earlier policy. But analysts said it reflected a new approach to the way it dealt with a group which Mubarak banned from politics.

The Brotherhood is one of Egypt’s most popular and organized groups, with a broad grassroots network built up partly through social work even in Mubarak’s era.

The contacts may unsettle Israel and its U.S. backers. The Brotherhood renounced violence as a means to achieve political change in Egypt years ago. But groups like Hamas, which have not disavowed violence, look to the Brotherhood as a spiritual guide.

Under the previous policy, U.S. diplomats were allowed to deal with the Brotherhood’s members of parliament who had won seats as “independents” to skirt the official ban. This offered a diplomatic cover to keep lines of communication open.

“We have had direct contacts with senior officials of the Freedom and Justice party,” the senior diplomat told Reuters, referring to the Brotherhood’s party that was founded after politics opened up following the ouster of Mubarak.

The diplomat said U.S. officials did not make a distinction between members of the Brotherhood or its party. “We don’t have a policy that makes a distinction, that one or the other is off limits,” he said, without saying when the meetings took place.

The diplomat was responding to a question about whether any meetings had occurred, after Freedom Justice Party Chairman Mohamed Mursi told Egypt’s Al-Dostour newspaper last week that U.S. officials had not made contact since the policy shift.

Speaking to Reuters on Sunday, the party deputy head Essam el-Erian also denied any meetings had taken place with U.S. officials when asked about the diplomat’s comments.

It was not immediately clear why the two sides gave different accounts.

“HIGH-LEVEL” MEETINGS

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked in an interview broadcast on Saturday with Egypt’s Al-Hayat television whether Washington would be ready to work with a future government that included members of the Brotherhood.

“We will be willing to and open to working with a government that has representatives who are committed to non-violence, who are committed to human rights, who are committed to the democracy that I think was hoped for in Tahrir Square,” she replied, according to a U.S. transcript.

Under the former Egyptian president, the Brotherhood was banned and its members often detained. Mubarak often presented himself as the bulwark preventing Egypt’s slide into Islamist hands, an approach that analysts said help secure him backing from Washington and other Western powers wary that Egypt could turn into another Iran or Gaza.

The group took a backseat in the early part of the anti-Mubarak uprising, which was broadly led by youth groups who put national concerns above religion. But the Brotherhood and its party have taken a increasingly prominent role since.

The diplomat said the U.S. contacts had been with “high-level” members of the Brotherhood’s party but did not give names. From the U.S. side, he said the contacts were not at ambassadorial level but he did not give further details.

“We had occasionally had these contacts in the past … The difference is in the past we had seen parliamentarians,” he said.

Egypt’s parliament was dissolved after Mubarak’s fall. Fresh elections for the lower house are due to start in November, with a vote for the upper house early next year.

The Brotherhood is expected to perform well in the vote, although many analysts expect a fairly fragmented parliament with no single unified voice emerging.

The diplomat said contacts with the Brotherhood were part of an bid to understand Egypt better and explain U.S. policies.

“From our perspective it is important to be in touch with all of the emerging political forces here in Egypt, across the board, that are peaceful and committed to non-violence,” he said.

“It helps to understand Egypt and the way the political system is developing, and it helps us to deliver our message and get them to understand where we are coming from,” he added.

Showing some spine, Congress blocks $200 million in aid to Palestinians

Showing some spine, Congress blocks $200 million in aid to
Palestinians

Rick Moran

Why reward Abbas for refusing to
negotiate and use the UN to end run the peace process?

The
Independent:

The United States Congress has
blocked nearly $200m in aid for the Palestinians, threatening projects such as
food aid, health care, and support for efforts to build a functioning
state.

The decision to delay the payments
runs counter to the wishes of the Obama administration and reflects
Congressional anger at Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s so far unrealised
pursuit of Fatah-Hamas reconciliation and statehood recognition at the UN.

The freezing of the funds, which were
to have been dispersed in the US fiscal year that ends today, is the most
tangible sign yet of the seriousness of Congressional leaders’ threats of an
even wider halt to funding in the coming year if Mr Abbas continues with his
actions at the UN. It was strongly condemned yesterday by the Palestinian
Authority.

There have been persistent demands in
Congress to withhold up to $600m – the average amount given by the US in
bilateral assistance to the West Bank and Gaza every year since 2008 – in the
next financial year over the issue.

The administration remains, as does
Congress, opposed to the Palestinians’ application for full UN membership, which
Mr Abbas submitted last week. But it argues that assistance to the Palestinian
people is what a US official described as “an essential part of the US
commitment to a secure future and two-state solution for Palestinians”.

Nonsense. What will secure a future
two state solution is Hamas and Fatah recognizing Israel’s right to exist as a
Jewish state within secure borders. Accepting anything short of that would be
suicide for Israel. If the US Congress can pressure the Palestinians to
recognize reality and negotiate in good faith on those terms, they would have
advanced the peace process.

Also, the fact that the Palestinians
passionately hate America makes it a little odd that they would object to the
cut off. I would have thought they would be dancing in the streets – just like
they did after the towers fell on 9/11.

Hamas: ‘Resistance’ against Israel is only option left for Palestinians

Hamas: ‘Resistance’ against Israel is only option left for Palestinians

Hamas leader Khaled Meshal addresses Tehran conference ‘in support of the Palestinian Intifada’; Iranian supreme leader tells conference that UN bid for statehood will fail.

By The Associated Press and     HaaretzTags:                                        IranHamasAli KhameiniGazaPalestinian state

Hamas leader Khaled Meshal told an international conference in Iran on Saturday that “resistance” was the only option left for the Palestinians.

Meshal was addressing the “5th International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada” in Iran’s capital Tehran.

“Palestinians must resort to resistance no matter how costly it is, until Palestine is free and Israel is destroyed,” Meshal said.

What do you think of this article? Visit Haaretz.com on Facebook and share your views.

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who also spoke at the conference on Saturday, assailed a two state solution for Israel and the Palestinians, saying the Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations is doomed to fail.

Khamenei told the conference, which was attended by other by senior Palestinian militant leaders as well as Mashaal, that the Palestinians should not limit themselves to seeking a country based on the pre-1967 borders because “all land belongs to Palestinians.”

“Our claim is freedom of Palestine, not part of Palestine. Any plan that partitions Palestine is totally rejected,” Khamenei told the conference.

“Palestine spans from the river (Jordan) to the sea (Mediterranean), nothing less.”

Khamenei claimed that a two state solution would mean “giving in to the demand of the Zionists” and that it would “trample the rights of the Palestinian people” to live on their land.

Khamenei also called Israel a “cancerous tumor” that should be removed.

Hamas has repeatedly expressed its opposition to the Palestinian bid for statehood in the UN, led by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Last week, Gaza’s Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh accused Abbas.of relinquishing Palestinian rights by seeking recognition for a state in the pre-1967 borders.

“The Palestinian people do not beg the world for a state, and the state can’t be created through decisions and initiatives,” Haniyeh said. “States liberate their land first and then the political body can be established.”

Iran Considering Attacking U.S. Facilities in Mideast

Iran Considering Attacking U.S. Facilities in Mideast

By Reza
Kahlili

Destroying American military positions in the Middle
East is the most effective method to get the “Great Satan” to abandon the
region, Iran now believes.

“The Islamic Awakening in the region has overthrown
many of the heads of states who were puppets of the West,” according to a
recent analysis by the Mahramaneh
online
website, which is close to Iran’s supreme leader,
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. “It is simple-minded for us to assume that America and
the West in general would sit by and forget about devising new conspiracies for
derailing and taking control of the revolutions.”

Therefore, the analysis concludes, an America weakened
by economic and military crises makes preemptive assaults on U.S. targets all
the more inviting.

The radicals ruling Iran have long believed that due
to internal U.S. problems, America can no longer sustain its activities in the
Middle East and is bound to pack up and leave eventually.  Now these radicals
believe that they could attack American forces in the region, starting a
regional war with America, and have a good chance at winning
it.

They further believe that by initiating such a war,
not only will they further influence the Islamic movement in the region, but
they will come out as the leaders of this movement worldwide.

“Evidently what America and the West are currently
pursuing,” the analysis says, “is, in the first place, the veering of the
populist revolutions toward their large Middle East project (Western-style
governments), and in case that project fails, they will do everything in their
power to start a religious war among the Muslims; a Sunni-Shia war would be
their choice.”

Deadly conflict continues in Iraq between Sunnis and
Shias, and Muslim backlash festers in such places as Egypt, Yemen, and Bahrain.
Iran, predominately Shia, is vying for influence in the region against such
Sunni powers as Saudi Arabia.

“This does not mean that we should forget the behavior
of the Saudi rulers in the slaughter of the innocent people of Bahrain, with the
excuse of falling into the trap of preventing religious wars, and sit idly by,”
the analysis says. “There is indeed a better solution: crush the snake’s head
(America).”

The American political leadership and its war
machinery are controlled by Western investors, the analysis says, and America
will get involved in a war only if the end result is financial gain.  “Based on
the situation at hand, is it wise for us to stand by and let the enemy take its
time and make plans for his future since they started the guns of war?”

The analysis says that the United States would not
launch a war against the Islamic Republic of Iran, either by itself or with
Israel.  Instead, it would start a proxy war through Saudi
Arabia.

“First, by starting a war via the Saudis, Americans
would not have to be liable for any possible defeat,” the analysis says:

and furthermore it would make that (Saud) family ever
more reliant on the West, and out of gratitude they would hand over control of
their oil interests to the West.

Second and most important is that by starting such a
war, the Western media machine would publicize it as a religious war, preventing
unity of the Muslims against the West and therefore the disintegration of the
revolutionaries of the region.

The Iranian website then concludes that if the Islamic
Republic, quietly and without any media hype, attacks American installations
throughout the region, the United States will have but two choices: either it
will be forced to keep quiet and the media will freeze out the information, or
it will be forced to go to war with Iran, in which case the war would then be
out-and-out known to be a war between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the West
and America.

Certainly with such a preemptive attack policy, the
West and America will be utterly confused and bewildered, the analysis says, and
instead of starting a war they cannot win, they should cease their
power-grabbing, pack up their wares, and leave the Middle East, “returning to
the hell they crawled out of; that is the way of Islam’s
victory.”

Ayatollah Khamenei, days ago,
