Then Nahash the Ammonite came up, and encamped against Jabeshgilead: and all the men of Jabesh said unto Nahash, Make a covenant with us, and we will serve thee. And Nahash the Ammonite answered them, On this condition will I make a covenant with you, that I may thrust out all your right eyes, and lay it for a reproach upon all Israel. And the elders of Jabesh said unto him, Give us seven days’ respite, that we may send messengers unto all the coasts of Israel: and then, if there be no man to save us, we will come out to thee.( I Samuel 11:1-4)
I have been thinking of this timeless scriptural story, in relation to the West’s current existential struggle against Islamic barbarism. Nahash, an early Ammonite King demanded a high price for “peace” with the besieged town of Jabesh Gilead. He would let them live, as long as they were willing to put their right eyes out, thus rendering the men helpless to defend themselves, in a day of the military use of archery and hand-held shields.
One of Nahash’s descendants, (if not physical, certainly moral and spiritual),Mohammed, devised a similar system, called Dhimmification. Muslims would “allow you to live” if you would be willing to be “humbled”, pay a severe tax, and live as a second class citizen for the rest of your life, constantly to be reminded in a degrading fashion, of the ‘superiority” of your Muslim masters. Don’t take my word for it,
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”(Koran 9:29)
Once again the world is treated to the spectacle of Islamist terrorists performing atrocities in a well-organized military assault on an upscale shopping mall, this time in Nairobi Kenya. All of the marks of Mohammed’s war on civilization were featured, in the cowardly attack. Ordinary people, shopping at the mall, mostly women, children, the elderly, couples, and whatever else you would expect to see on any given day at a mall, were gunned down or hacked to death, for the crime of not being Muslim.
Checkpoints were erected, so that the helpless people could be separated , Muslims were escorted out by the “Mujahadeen’, so that only Christians, Jews or idolaters remained at the mercy of the demon possessed killers.
The terrorists tweeted from the mall, that they were Muslim, and were killing in the name of Allah, as they slaughtered the innocent without mercy.
Enter David Cameron, Prime minister of Britain, insisting immediately that the terrorists couldn’t possibly be representing Islam;
‘These appalling terrorist attacks that take place where the perpetrators claim they do it in the name of a religion – they don’t. They do it in the name of terror, violence and extremism and their warped view of the world. They don’t represent Islam or Muslims in Britain or anywhere else in the world.’
He’s not the only one.
The Obama administration has worked diligently to see to it that any reference to Islam, linking it in any way to terror, be stripped from FBI training manuals, as this USA Today story reports,
After complaints from some Muslim and Arab-American groups, the FBI has pulled more than 700 documents and 300 presentations that stereotyped Islam or were factually inaccurate, a FBI spokesman said. The federal agency also intends in coming weeks to roll out plans on how it will vet training materials.
FBI Director Robert Mueller announced the agency had pulled the documents at a meeting two weeks ago with advocacy groups.
“The steps taken by the FBI … are certainly welcomed,” Abed Ayoub, the national director of the Arab American Anti-Discrimination League said Friday.
Ayoub and members of six other religious or ethnic groups met with Mueller in Washington, D.C., to discuss their concerns. They expressed opposition to training materials and presentations by experts for FBI agents that they considered anti-Muslim. Some of the materials say Islam promotes violence and extremism.
Get a load of that last sentence! Can you believe the willful blindness?
The US Military has undergone similar purges as well, as this report,History of the Muslim Brotherhood penetration Of The US Government , documents. One example is the public flagging and demotion of LTC Matthew Dooley, an instructor at the Army’s Defense College, who taught on the subject of Islam and Shariah,
When Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, publicly excoriated, then fired, US Army LTC Matthew Dooley, an instructor at National Defense University, in April 2012 over an earlier-approved course on Islam, and then ordered Dooley’s career-ending Negative Officer Evaluation Report, the lesson was meant to serve as a stark warning to anyone else in the DoD who might be tempted to become accurately educated about Islam.
The men of Jabesh Gilead were given a week to consider whether or not they would surrender their right eyes for peace, but I wonder if our ‘ruling elite’ haven’t already surrendered their eyes.
It wasn’t long ago that Michelle Bachman was being pilloried and mocked for her insistence that perhaps Muslims such as Huma Abadeen the chief advisor to (then) secretary of state Hillary Clinton be investigated a bit closer, before giving a security clearance. You would have thought she was the modern Joe McCarthy.(BTW McCarthy proved to be correct about communist infiltration, just saying).
For another recent example, CAIR, the co-conspirator in the Holy Land foundation terror financing trial, has worked diligently to impede investigations into “homegrown” terrorist development in places such as Minneapolis. Perhaps if our government wouldn’t have willfully succumbed to political correctness, an investigation into Minneapolis’ Somali community would have uncovered the fact that three US Passport holders have become participants in the Nairobi atrocity.
This craven eye gouging in the name of the idol of political correctness, doesn’t bode well for the future of this once great nation. Islam has had a long history of subversion, infiltration and ultimately treachery. The Muslim Brothers which have infiltrated our State Department and who now serve as the President’s advisors, have successfully been able to leverage US military and intelligence to the service of the ideological allies of Al Queda, and in some cases Al Queda itself.
Please pray for our Nation! Only God can rescue us .

[Quran 2:62] “Those who believe, and those who are Jewish, and the Christians, and the Sabeans-any who believe in God and the Last Day, and act righteously-will have their reward with their Lord; they have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.”
Talal, why don’t you give that verse to ISIS,ISIL,the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, AL QUEda, Shabab, and the assorted other Muslims who are gleefully slaying Jews ,Christians and even Muslims ho are’nt ISlamic enough? Isn’t that an abrogated verse? Wasn’t it suerceded by the one that says “Make no friendship with a Jew or a Christian…”? Islam cannot even bring peace to Muslims as evidenced by the bloodstained last couple of decades.
