Islam Is Tiring Of Islamo Fascism

Published by at 6:13 am under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT

The dream of Islamo Fascism, the take over of the world and the final elimination of the infidels, was a major part of the glue that held the ideaology together. It envisioned the Islamic Warriors fighting the Great Satan and destroying it and its evil influences. And through the 1990′s (thanks Bill) and culminating with 9-11, the dream was coming true. Then America began to tear that dream apart. And now Islamo Fascism is all about mass murdering Muslims for headlines. That is where we have come over nearly 6 years since 9-11.

And it is clear that Islam is tiring of Islamo Fascism. We see it in the polls on suicide bombings, we see it as Iraqis stand up and purge Iraq of al-Qaeda, and we see it as those who once fought the Great Satan realize how truly screwed up the whole idea was:

The last time Ahmed Al Shayea was in the news, he was in the hospital at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad, being treated for severe burns from the truck bomb he had driven into the Iraqi capital on Christmas Day 2004.

Today, he says, he has changed his mind about waging jihad, or holy war, and wants other young Muslims to know it. He wants them to see his disfigured face and fingerless hands, to hear how he was tricked into driving the truck on a fatal mission, to believe his contrition over having put his family through the agony of believing he was dead.

At 22, the new Ahmed Al Shayea is the product of a concerted Saudi government effort to counter the ideology that nurtured the 9/11 hijackers and that has lured Saudis in droves to the Iraq insurgency. The deprogramming, similar to efforts carried out in Egypt and Yemen, is built on reason, enticements and lengthy talks with psychiatrists, Muslim clerics and sociologists.

I am sure there are many more muslims like this who are now truly regretting they fell for the lies of al-Qaeda.

    Some of us personally think that Huntsville is looking to take over our Mission Control Center since we are moving our backup control center from Moscow to Huntsville, which would allow our emergency flight control team to monitor remotely from out of town via secure laptops (Microsoft Windows based).

    Durn that reminds me of the old joke from Mort Sahl when he said some expected political manipulation when Lyndon Johnson created the JSC but a congressional hearing looked in to it and determined the moon was closer to Huston than it was to Cape Canaveral.

    The software side of the whole computer world is a bunch of incestuous bunch of idiots that cant get a clue.

    The hardware guys out punch them every day almost as an after thought.

    We now have multi core processors that the software side is pounding their pud to try to use in the most in even the most basic of abilities.

    It really is a sad thing to watch when you think about it.

    BTW

    The code name for OS/2 before if was released to to production was Merlin.

    Read my own handle and determine what you will if I had hands in that.

    It’s simply an old toss off handle I had on AOL in its early days and after I gave it up someone other than me absconded with the name.

    Now I proudly reclaim it.

    M&M takes gold when she bites down on the butt of that fool in Iraq that TNR is fronting. It’s a full body douche of the douche bag with no holds barred. You simply got to love it!

    Re: posts way up the chain here, You may be right Merlin, but I think the President knows more on this subject than meets the eye.

    All that being said,I agree with the view of this being a cold war with Islam….and our last cold war was what, 70 years long…..It is going to be a long hard slog, imho but well worth it!

    Must read op/ed piece here folks.

    The new emerging consensus in the US is that the American-led coalition ought to remain in Iraq at least until the next Iraqi general election in 2009. The idea is also backed by the Iraqi government and parliament. Terror fails when people refuse to be terrorized. And this may be happening in Iraq.

    But read the whole thing. It is AMAZING stuff!

    I don’t know if you have ever been there like I have to have seen it, but even the most extreme right Christians that the left types mock as “fundies” don’t have the total immersion that the Muslims do.

    Every person over there has Islam as the thread that makes up the fabric of their life.

    It’s not a Sunday goto church thing and move on for the rest of the week.

    It’s from the rising of the sun until the day is done and nothing alters in between.

    Each time in the past Islam has tried to assert itself in the manner their books of religion put forward there was a massive undertaking on a long term basis to counter it.

    Having said that , since there are about a billion Muslims in the world to recruit from and AQ is having their butts kicked and have their leaders crying for recruits to do their deeds, it would lead one to think that they know this is a bunch of hijackers trying to use them to put their own agenda forward.

    Otherwise if they bought into the deal as being real we would have whole floods of bodies being thrown at us each day and that simply doesn’t exist.

    Simply put even the mideast isn’t buying into their dog and pony show, but in other news the Dems here are running with it like it’s the best thing since sliced bread.

    Sort of reminds me of the old joke of trying to climb a flashlight beam.

  9. MerlinOS2 says:

    If this was catching fire we would have a whole lot more major stuff going on.

    But that does not mean by any stretch that it won’t take years to stamp out those who support this meme.

    And believe me the only way to eliminate it is stamp them out. Your not going to change their mind or negotiate with them, it’s not in the cards.

  10. MerlinOS2 says:

    Even as we view the spectacular stunts these guys pull in Iraq and Afghanistan those aren’t any thing but show stories.

    The dudes we are fighting have many facets and the local fight there is only one.

    These guys have a hundred year plan and a lot thought to back it up.

    The euros have thousands of their followers inserted into their population and no body knows where to point their gun and when to pull the trigger if all hell breaks loose.

    Not a very nice situation.

  11. MerlinOS2 says:

    So what it boils down to is we have a bunch of wackjobs trying to scam a religious war onto a whole population and not making their argument stick.

    Yeah they can attract the young and idealist types but they don’t have real traction in the masses they really need to push their idea forward.

    That doesn’t mean we can ignore them , if we do , they will hit us where it hurts if they get a chance.

    We are up against trying to kill all the cockroaches in the world and have at our backside to worry someone will want to protect them as an endangered species.

    Life is fun, but this doesn’t make it as one of it’s best moments.

    Here’s another one.

    “There is no jihad. We are just instruments of death,” he said.

  13. ivehadit says:

    I agree, Merlin.

    And personally, I think there are lots of “strange bedfellows” together in this “jihad against America”…if ya know what I mean…

  14. Crosspatch: thank you for the links; they are very good!

    I have written a little different take on the situation; please stop by and let me know what you think, I value your opinion.

    OH. MY. GOD. People you have GOT to read this. These guys are from Brookings Inst. and have been uber critical. Now they say we might just win this thing. But most interesting, they say the critics of Bush here in the US seem completely out of touch with what is going on in Iraq … AND THE NYT PRINTED IT!

    VIEWED from Iraq, where we just spent eight days meeting with American and Iraqi military and civilian personnel, the political debate in Washington is surreal. The Bush administration has over four years lost essentially all credibility. Yet now the administration’s critics, in part as a result, seem unaware of the significant changes taking place.

    Here is the most important thing Americans need to understand: We are finally getting somewhere in Iraq, at least in military terms. As two analysts who have harshly criticized the Bush administration’s miserable handling of Iraq, we were surprised by the gains we saw and the potential to produce not necessarily “victory” but a sustainable stability that both we and the Iraqis could live with.

    Read the whole thing … both pages.

    OMG! AFP out of France is saying the same thing! (article is from AFP but this link is to the Daily Times of Pakistan.)

    I can NOT believe this.
