They want to introduce the worldwide caliphate

Reader comment on item: What Do Terrorists Want? [A Caliphate and Shari'a]

Submitted by Maggie (Australia), Aug 9, 2005 at 05:25

I posted two links relating to newspaper articles relating to the activity of radical Muslims in Australia. The message from these radicals is that they want to establish the caliphate and introduce the Sharia law.

Today, I read that one of the Muslim clerics in Britain has departed in order to go to an unnamed destination via Lebanon. The government was going to investigate his activities and if necessary charge him with treason. What is alarming is that he sent a message with a warning, that sounds like a like from an Arnie Schwarznegger movie "I'll be back", or rather he said something like "London will hear from me". As I thought about those words it sounded very much like this man was making a threat, or a promise for the future of London.

These radical clerics are determined to establish the worldwide caliphate. Everything else is just an excuse to carry out their original plans. They will try to cover their plans by making claims such as our participation in Iraq is the cause of the violence. That is not true.

For example, the terrorist group Jamaal Islamaiyah was planning a special event for the Sydney 2000 Olympics but the plot was foiled because the cell who was going to carry out the terrorist attack was discovered and thus an act of terrorism in the year 2000 was thwarted. This was before the tragic and intentional terror attack on the World Trade Centre and other landmarks in the USA. Australia had come to the assistance of the East Timorese who were being persecuted by the Muslim Indonesian soldiers, and Indonesia was forced to return East Timor to the inhabitants. This led to the extremists blaming Australia because they were forced out of East Timor. Some Indonesian Islamofacist extremists use this as justification of action against Australia. Keep in mind that the violence in East Timor occurred in 1999, prior to the Olympics.

Immediately after the London bombings, a bookstore and Sydney mosque began to distribute books that explained how to make suicide bombs. This activity was quickly dealt with because of the serious nature of the books that were on sale. The mere fact that these people had imported this material that had Osama Bin Laden extolling the virtues of suicide bombing is a very serious matter, and it is an indication that there are ulterior motives at play.

In each case that I have attempted to highlight the Muslim cleric or activist has refused to condemn terror activity. In fact they have gone in the opposite direction stating that it is a part of their religion. This is a further indication that the real aim is for Islamism to take over the world and force us all under the Sharia law.
