The Debate Has Begun... Where Will Gov. Palin Take It?
Posted on Race42008.com 12-28-2009
Gov. Sarah Palin and Gov. Bobby Jindal both remind me of Reagan...
However, Palin, in taking the road less traveled with go-for-it gumption and inner fortitude (college ... basketball point guard ... mayor ... resigning from commission to expose corrupting machinations ... taking on the Alaska good-old-boy Republicans and winning Governorship decisively ... Vice-President nominee with charisma ... "mover and shaker" with speeches, op-eds, a simple computer and Facebook comments, hah!! ... book seller ... wife and mother of 5...) and doing it with the self-assurance that comes with maturity, Palin has revealed that she has Margaret Thatcher appeal ... intelligence ... style... and the inner woman soul/spirit, the LADY has "IT" charisma that gets positive attention from men & women, left & right, and negative attention from men & women, left & right.
In the "Palin Test" 4th paragraph, only negative aspects are discussed without mentioning Palin's reasons for taking the positions she took. An example is the Alaska Supreme Court appointment of a Planned Parenthood official.
I mention paragraph 4 to segue into my own pet peeve re: what some Gov. Palin supporters are saying is her perspective of the fanatical element of supremacist Islam.
The Debate Has Begun...
I have read in other forums the view that Gov. Palin implicitly criticized groups like JihadWatch.org and founder Robert Spencer as having a limited perspective about supremacist Islam and the anti-capitalist stealth jihad to use the legal system to plant Sharia law in America to subvert the U.S. constitution
What was Gov. Palin implicitly criticizing in her Hong Kong speech? She did not point to anything specific and did not reference the supremacist aspect of Islam which uses the Qur'an as it's jihad and Sharia law text book to promote "...thus saith Muhammad" about jihad, which means that there can be no deviation from the ultimate goal of international jihad and Alla's supremacy over the whole earth under Sharia law.
It is accurate to say that Muhammad spoke kindly about Christians and Jews for the first 12 years at the start of his preaching in Mecca.
However, after the Jewish leaders in Mecca rejected his prophetic role, and after Muhammad was forced to leave Mecca for his safety and moved to Median, in his years in Medina Muhammad's teachings and rhetoric changed dramatically... Muhammad said to kill kaffirs (...infidels, unbelievers) who will not pay the jizya (...dhimmi compliance tax) and who will not convert to Islam or will not accept the dhimmi (...subservient) status... so, they must die if they will not convert to Islam or accept dhimmitude and pay jizya.
That is supremacist Islamic history in a nutshell, not speculation about intent.

Gov. Palin's References to Islam In Her Hong Kong Speech
“Two weeks ago, America commemorated the 8th anniversary of the savagery of September 11, 2001. [...].
"[...] In this struggle with radical Islamic extremists, no part of the world is safe from those who bomb, maim and kill in the service of their twisted vision.
"This war – and that is what it is, a war – is not, as some have said, a clash of civilizations. We are not at war with Islam. This is a war within Islam, where a small minority of violent killers seeks to impose their view on the vast majority of Muslims who want the same things all of us want: [...].
"[...] Last year, in the midst of the U.S. debate over what do to in Iraq, an important voice was heard – from Asia’s Wise Man, former Singaporean Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, who wrote in the Washington Post about the cost of retreat in Iraq. In that article, he prophetically addressed the stakes in Afghanistan.
'The Taliban is again gathering strength, and a Taliban victory in Afghanistan or Pakistan would reverberate throughout the Muslim world. It would influence the grand debate among Muslims on the future of Islam.
'A severely retrograde form of Islam would be seen to have defeated modernity twice: first the Soviet Union, then the United States. There would be profound consequences, especially in the campaign against terrorism.'

The statements by Gov. Palin about "... a war within Islam, where a small minority of violent killers seeks to impose their view on the vast majority of Muslims" and her quote about former Singaporean Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew about a "... severely retrograde form of Islam..." do not at all suggest that Gov. Palin was implicitly referring to and criticizing as having a limited perspective groups like JihadWatch.org and Robert Spencer.
Of course, it is accurate to say that it is "a war within Islam" where a small "minority" wants to impose supremacist Islam on the "majority" of Muslims.
The question is, what do the Qur'an and the Hadith MEAN when they say "...thus saith Muhammad" about jihad and Sharia law... not what do the "moderate" Muslims think it means as opposed to what the "supremacist" Muslims think it means?
There are historically accurate authors, such as Robert Spencer and Andrew Bostom, who have written about supremacist Islam who are making the point that the so-called "moderate" Muslims are the ones subverting the theological supremacy of the "religion of peace" and thus, the so-called "supremacist" Islam "IS" the true "moderate" Islam because the supremacist Muslims are the ones who are adhering to the original intent of the letter of the Qur'an re: jihad and the imposition of Sharia law on the whole earth.
Lee Kuan Yew's statement about a "... severely retrograde form of Islam..." is not a definitive statement about the historical essence of supremacist Islam, unless 1400 years of Islamic jihad and +/- 200 million kaffir's who would not submit to dhimmi status and so were killed for Allah, is retrograde too.
That is history about 1400 years of supremacist Islam, not fantasy about Islam today re: the debate about fanatical "supremacist" Islam vs. "moderate" Islam.
A "small minority of violent killers" is a limited reference to a small supremacist minority who use the Qur'an as their jihad and Sharia law text book.
However, Gov. Palin words do not seem to be implying that the fanatic Muslim minority is wrong about (...the traditional understanding of) the Qur'an and "supremacist" Islam... and jihad... and Sharia law... replacing the U.S. constitution, while (...the traditional understanding of) the "moderate" Muslim majority is right about Islam.... and jihad... and that Sharia law will NOT replace the U.S. constitution.
If and when Gov. Palin ever were to say that 1400 years of supremacist Islamic jihad and the imposition of Sharia law in the name of Allah is being misrepresented by Robert Spencer on JihadWatch.org ... or Pamela Geller on AtlasShrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs ... or Bill Warner on PoliticalIslam.com ... or David Horowitz on TerrorismAwareness.org & FrontPageMag.com ... or Brigitte Gabriel on ActForAmerica.org & AmericanCongressForTruth.com ... or Geert Wilders ... or Andrew Bostom ... et al., THAT would be a definitive statement.
THEN it would be accurate to say that Gov. Palin would not only be IMPLYING that Robert Spencer and JihadWatch.org has a "limited perspective" about supremacist Islam, Gov. Palin would be EXPLICITLY saying that pointing out the history of the last 1400 years of "convert or die or live as a dhimmi" rhetoric in the name of Allah by supremacist Islam is simply a limited perspective by Geert Wilders, Andrew Bostom, Pamela Geller, Brigitte Gabriel, Robert Spencer et al., and would reveal Western misunderstanding due to Western feelings of superiority, and language limitations because the Qur'an is not read in the original language ( which makes the Imam the authority figure for the "supremacist" AND "moderate" Muslims ).
However, I do not think that Gov. Palin would have advisers around her who would be so uneducated, uninformed and misguided that they would not educate Gov. Palin about nascent anti-capitalist and supremacist Islam and the Qur'an inspired stealth jihad in America that is the 20th Century iteration and 21st Century continuation of the Muslim Brotherhood stealth jihad that began in 1928... because Muhammad said so in the 600s AD.
People living in England probably know about the nascent Sharia courts that are being accepted in the British court system (and by the head Christian dhimmi, the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams) and the growing Muslim no-go-zone ghettos in England and France and Germany.
Read more here from AmericanCongressForTruth.com about Terrorist Network Cells In America. Can Sharia compliant courts be next in America? Yes. That is EXACTLY the intent of legal jihad.
Hopefully, that nascent supremacist Islam intent and the stealth legal jihad to implement Sharia law in America is what Gov. Palin will address forcefully and substantively and explicitly in the future.
God Bless America and God Bless our friends in Europe.
The debate has begun... where will Gov. Palin take it is the question?
