Islam and the Pentagon
Reader comment on item: The Caliphate
Submitted by Always On Watch (United States), Dec 15, 2005 at 20:43Donvan mentions the following:
Reports have it that the Pentagon is examining the possibilty that the "Koran", is in fact,
a .."MANUAL OF WAR..". And that "Islam is an ideological engine for war..."
and that ,"Unlike Judaism and Christianity Islam advocates expansion by force".
As reported in Front Page Magazine @
the Pentagon study is focusing on three stages of jihad:
"The internal document explains that Islam divides offensive jihad into a 'three-phase attack strategy' for gaining control of lands for Allah. The first phase is the 'Meccan,' or weakened, period, whereby a small Muslim minority asserts itself through largely peaceful and political measures involving Islamic NGOs -- such as the Islamic Society of North America, which investigators say has its roots in the militant Muslim Brotherhood, and Muslim pressure groups, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, whose leaders are on record expressing their desire to Islamize America.
"In the second 'preparation' phase, a 'reasonably influential' Muslim minority starts to turn more militant. The briefing uses Britain and the Netherlands as examples.
"And in the final jihad period, or 'Medina Stage,' a large minority uses its strength of numbers and power to rise up against the majority, as Muslim youth recently demonstrated in terrorizing France, the Pentagon paper notes."
I predict that CAIR is going to fight the study which the Pentagon is undertaking.
