America's Cage War Against Radical Islam

Gang members operating as the "fifth column" are providing aid to the the terrorists from inside the United States.

July 19, 2011  |  by Richard Valdemar - Also by this author

"Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God's great Judgment Seat;
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
When two strong men stand face to face, tho' they come from the ends of the earth!" — Rudyard Kipling (1889).

Our Judeo-Christian culture has been challenged in the arena of global conflict. We're locked in the "ultimate fighting cage" of war, a place we've been before. We're in a fight against extremist terrorism, and this isn't the first round. The great cultures of the East and the West have battled throughout world history. And make no mistake, this is a religious war.

A nation's religious teachings are the guiding compass of its moral and civil laws. This is why Islamic Sharia law is what the radical Muslim Wahhabist (followers of the 18th Century Shiite reformer Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Abd-al-Wahhab) desire. They call Westerners "crusaders" and hate the Pope. Why? When Islam threatened the Holy Land, the noble knights of the west became crusaders to defend the Christian Holy Land.

Parts of Eastern Europe and Spain were invaded by the armies of Mohammed and fell. Some fought on and were liberated. But many of these nations on both sides still hold serious haltered for their former conquerors going back to the 11th Century.

The continuing conflict between the Serbs and Croatians, the Turks and the Armenians, and even the legend of the vampire Dracula are the result of these East-versus-West cultural and religious wars. The Catholic Church and the European kings invented the notorious Inquisition primarily to find and destroy the Spanish Muslim fifth column.

The Fifth Column

What is a fifth column? Most definitions of the term cite its common use originating in the Spanish Civil War and define it as, "any group of people who give aid and support to the enemy from within their own country."

For the last two centuries, the East has sought to build and utilize this American fifth column against us. For many years, the East has financed and supported the building of Islamic mosques in America. Muslim clergy, or ulema, are trained and sent to America by many of our cultural enemies. Even Saudi Arabia (our supposed allies) financially supports radical mosques and Wahhabist clerics in our mists. These clergy or mullahs, imams, and Maulvis have entered into our jails, prisons, and armed services as chaplains.

Radical Muslim extremists have trained and financed rebels and "armies of liberation" in Spain, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Lebanon, Palestine, Kosovo, Bosnia, Afghanistan and most of the hot spots in Africa, Central and South America. They haven't changed their ways and can be found in the revolutionary army in Chiapas, Mexico.

Weapons of Oil and Drugs

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is a permanent intergovernmental organization, created at the Baghdad Conference on September of 1960, by Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. Look closely at the five founding OPEC nations; they aren't friends of the U.S. The cost of gasoline and other petroleum products is largely controlled by OPEC. Even as our tanks and Hummers traverse the roads of Afghanistan and Iraq, some of the fuel they burn finances the terrorists we fight.

Afghanistan and Pakistan now provide the primary sources for illicit opium, which will eventually become the heroin that's distributed and pushed by the street gangs in every major American city. This generates billions of dollars of profit to finance death and destruction caused by street gangs, as well as the Muslim war lords and international terrorists. It corrupts Mexico, and other Central and South American countries involved in the drug trade. The money it generates corrupts the U.S., as well.

It Can Happen Here

In 1986, Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi gave gangster Jeff Fort—co-founder of the Black P. Stones, and his Islamic offshoots, the El Rukns—over $1 million to commit terrorist acts in Chicago. They used the money to buy a rocket launcher to shoot down an American commercial jet. Luckily, they were arrested during the BATF sting operation.

Chicago gangs have plenty of history operating in the fifth column. Four Corner Hustler gang member Angelo Roberts once plotted to blow up Chicago Police headquarters with a rocket and Maniac Latin Disciple gang member Jose Padilla plotted to obtain materials to construct a radioactive dirty bomb.

One error in the article; this is a religious war not against extremist islam, it is against islam itself. There isn't a mild form or islam; there are extremists that carry out and fund attacks, and there is moderate islam that funds extremists via charities, supports extremists by not speaking out against them and confronting them. Islam has always been spread through lies, deceit and by the sword.

Rick, your comments are right on. This is a good and timely article. Where we are now in the domestic aspect of this war is in large part directly due to the "politically correct" head-in-the-sand view of tolerance for so-called cultural diversity. Our "leaders" refuse to acknowledge the fact that the ultimate goal of Islam is conquest of the world. Muslims believe that is what they have been commanded to do and that any means used to accomplish it are honorable. They must be laughing out loud at western stupidity for playing right into their plans to overcome the "Great Satan" as we stumble along fearful of calling it what it is, afraid to profile because they would accuse us of discrimination. The TSA debacle at airports is a good example when octogenarian ladies in wheel chairs are scanned and groped while people dressed as Muslims are allowed to walk through unimpeded so we don't offend them. Just who has been attacking us for decades causing thousands of deaths, untold injuries and billions of dollars in property damage? Yet we have become AFRAID to "profile" them. The increasing explosion of Islamic cells in prison populations and recruitment in street gangs certainly bodes ill for the future. If America doesn't wake up to this deadly threat and deal strongly with it now, tomorrow it will be too late and eventually will result in widespread violence and acts of terrorism.

An excellent article. I would only add that the war is between civilization and Islam. The notion of "radical Islam" is a falsehood. A bit of propaganda pushing the false notion that the radicals are not representative of Islam. Indeed, the most violent Muslims are the ones following Islam's creed most closely. And terrorism in the service of Islam is widely supported by even the most purportedly mainstream and moderate Muslims.

There is no place in this country for sharia law. Even the liberals should understand this, if they are not brain dead.
