I know that right now we are not too concerned about terrorism, what with the political climate. I think you need to realize that terrorism, and the political picture of today, have closer ties then you might think. With this in mind, let’s explore the meaning of terrorism. A “terrorist” is defined as “one who engages in acts of terrorism”. I think that we can all agree that this definition goes without saying. “Terrorism” is defined as “the unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.” There we go a definition that will not allow for misinterpretation.
We all know about Al-Qaida, and all the rest of the Islamic groups, but what do we really know? Following are a few facts to help us in our understanding of the beliefs of these groups. Islam started in approximately 610 AD when the prophet Mohammad was given the word of God by the angel Gabriel. As you can see the Quran wasn’t written for 610 years after the death of Jesus. We know that Jesus was reportedly the “King of the Jews”, so it would stand to reason that the Muslims would want their own profit. After all Muslims and Jews were not the best of friends.
How does the prophet Mohammad influence the believers of Islam? Muhammad taught his followers to oppress or kill non-Muslims. Generally, Jews and Christians were allowed to live as such, provided they paid a special tax. This tax is Jizya, a tax revenue given to the Muslims to make up for revenues they lost from no longer dealing in pagan activities. If the Jews and Christians refused to pay this extortion tax they would have to convert to Islam or be killed. Non-Jews or Christians (idolaters or pagans) had to convert to Islam or be killed. Generally they didn’t have the option of paying the tax. Here is the verse that teaches Muslims to oppress Jews and Christians: “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, (which is Islam that abolishes all other religions) of the people of the Book, (meaning the Jews and the Christians) until they pay the Jizya (the tax imposed upon them) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued. (With humiliation and submission to the government of Islam.) 9:29 .” (Commentary in parenthesis is from the Tafsir Al-Jalalein. i.e., Al-Jalalein Interpretation of the Koran.) The order to kill Christians and Jews is in that verse. It is clear that Muhammad ordered his followers to fight those Christians and Jews to convert them or pay the Jizya, and if they don’t convert or pay, do you think that he told the followers to let them go in peace? It is very clear: convert… or pay with submission … or die.
Now it is very important for you all to understand that I do not believe that all Muslims are terrorists. I believe that the majority of Muslims are peace loving people, who want to practice their religion without outside interference or prejudice. This is all that the Christian, and Jewish, people want as well. This is why America is, or used to be, a good place to settle. In America we are known for our freedom of religion. This is what I believe, but I also believe that we should keep a watchful eye on anybody that has, as a part of their religion, a group that would want to hurt us because we don’t believe the same as they do. I also believe that when you are in another country, you should be respectful of their laws, and traditions. If we went abroad, and didn’t honor their laws we would be arrested. The same should be expected here. When you move to a country to live permanently, their laws, and traditions, should become yours.
The Muslims, or the Islam religion, are not the only form of terrorism that faces us today. Keeping in mind the definition of Terrorism, let’s look at the New Black Panther group. Keep in mind a terrorist is a person or group that unlawfully uses or threatens to use force or violence against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons. I think you will find that this group fits the definition rather well.
The following information is found in Wikipedia. The New Black Panther Party (NBPP), whose formal name is the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, is a U.S.-based black political organization founded in Dallas, Texas in 1989. Despite its name, NBPP is not an official successor to the Black Panther Party. Members of the original Black Panther Party have insisted that the newer party is illegitimate and have firmly declared that “there is no new Black Panther Party”.
When former Nation of Islam (NOI) minister Khalid Abdul Muhammad became the national chairman of the NBPP from the late 1990s until his death in 2001, the group attracted many breakaway members of the NOI. The NBPP is currently led by Malik Zulu Shabazz; it upholds Khalid Abdul Muhammad as the de facto father of the movement. In April 2010, Malik Zulu Shabazz appointed French Black leader Stellio Capo Chichi as the representative of the movement in France. Capo Chichi has been holding the position of head of the francophone branch of NBPP. The Anti-Defamation League, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights consider the New Black Panthers to be a hate group.
In 1987, Michael McGee, an alderman in Milwaukee, threatened to disrupt white events throughout the city unless more jobs were created for black people. He held a “state of the inner city” press conference in 1990 at City Hall to announce the creation of the Black Panther Militia. Aaron Michaels, a community activist and radio producer, was inspired to establish the New Black Panther Party. Michaels rose to widespread attention for the first time when he called on blacks to use shotguns and rifles in Philadelphia to protest against the chairman of a school board who had been taped calling black students “little niggers”. In 1998, the attorney Khalid Abdul Muhammad brought the organization into the national spotlight when he led the group to intervene in response to the 1998 murder of James Byrd, Jr. in Jasper, Texas. He also made the NBPP well-known for their vehement school board disruptions and public appearances.
As you can plainly see, this organization more than fits the definition of terrorist. The Anti-Deformation League says about this group; The New Black Panther Party for Self Defense (NBPP) is the largest organized anti-Semitic and racist black militant group in America. The group is led by Malik Zulu Shabazz, a Washington, DC-based attorney who has been active with the NBPP since the mid-1990s. By taking on racially-charged issues under the guise of championing civil rights, the NBPP has received national media attention for its efforts, garnered some support from prominent members of the African-American community and attracted followers. The group’s demonstrations, conferences, and other events often blend inflammatory bigotry with calls for violence, tarnishing its efforts to promote black pride and consciousness.
In January 2009, the U.S. Department of Justice filed suit against the group in response to an alleged incident of voter intimidation involving two of its members at a Philadelphia polling station on Election Day 2008. Following the incident and the public scrutiny it prompted, the group has undertaken efforts to unify its leadership and expand its member base. In advance of its December 2009 National Summit in Dallas, Shabazz called for pursuing the NBPP’s ultimate goals of Black Nationalism and Black Power “by any means necessary,” adding that, “We must unite and build up the New Black Panther Party… or die trying!”
The Trayvon Martin shooting ignited the New Black Panther party once again. They offered a $10,000 reward for George Zimmerman, dead or alive. If you don’t think they are terrorists like that of the radical Islamic movement, than listen to what they say about Israel; “Kill every goddamn Zionist in Israel! Goddamn little babies, goddamn old ladies! Blow up Zionist supermarkets!” —Malik Zulu Shabazz, the party’s national chairman, protesting in Washington, D.C., April 20, 2002. He also said during this interview; “I hate white people. All of them. Every last iota of a cracker, I hate it. We keep begging white people for freedom! No wonder we not free! Your enemy cannot make you free, fool! You want freedom? You going to have to kill some crackers! You going to have to kill some of their babies!” — King Samir Shabazz, head of the party’s Philadelphia chapter, in a National Geographic documentary, January 2009.
In an article posted by the Blaze on June 27, 2012: “That’s our brother, brother General Taco!” the New Black Panther radio host announced. General T.A.C.O. (Taking All Capitalists Out) of the New Black Panther Party had some less than encouraging words for white people. Mr. Taco, speaking on NBPP Radio on Sunday, decided to let white America know that the NBPP will “hunt” their “pink asses down.” Hunting white people down will serve to accomplish General Taco’s other stated goal of “destroying white supremacy and capitalism.” But simply hunting and killing the white person does not satisfy Mr. Taco: “Once [white people] die, we should dig ‘em up, and kill ‘em again, bury ‘em, dig ‘em up, and kill ‘em again, and again, and again!”
Now if you think that the New Black Panther group is not a group of terrorists, I don’t know how to convince you. They should be treated like any other terrorist group. In fact after they intimidated voters in 2008, the justice dept. filed suit against them: The right wing conservative blogs are up in arms and complaining bitterly about the Department of Justice dropping the charges against two Black Panther members who intimidated Philadelphia voters during the presidential elections in 2008. The order was given to drop the charges even though the DoJ had already won the case and was ready to sentence the defendants.
Why was this suit dropped, why is the hate talk being tolerated? Is our government afraid of terrorist? Is it that the terrorist are part of our governments design in taking over our country? I believe, with everything else going on today, that the latter is where the truth lays. With the Socialist agenda moving forward every day, and the Democratic Party being taken over already, it is not much of a stretch to say that the division being promoted by our government isn’t all connected. Yes I said that our government is promoting division, that is what a socialist does, that is what they told us years ago they would do. They said that they would take us over from within, look around, look at all the facts; this is exactly what they are doing.
It is my opinion that America is not at risk of terrorism, for to be at risk means that there is a chance that it will happen. We are not at risk because it is already happening. America is under attack by terrorist from foreign countries, and from their believers that were born on our shores. It is a sad state we find ourselves in, but it is our own fault. We have allowed this to happen by allowing our so called brothers, and sisters within this nation, to change the way we educate our children. To vilify our patriotism. To remove God from our schools, government, and even our very lives. It is time we took a step back, back to when we believed in the constitution, back when we trusted in God and country. We need to go back to when we had a government that worked for the people, instead of against. People will say “why would you want this country to move backwards?” I would say that it is better than moving “Forward”, because to move forward would mean to accept the changes made to this country. I for one would rather move back to a time when our country was held in higher regard. Not everyone liked us, but they at least respected our power. We need to move back to a time when we dealt with those who would divide us, swiftly and justly.
Pay attention America to the coming election, to what people are saying. If they lie to us, they are not worthy to represent us. We need to demand more from our leaders, we need to take responsibility for protecting our country from terrorists domestic, and abroad. We need to rebuild America, restore it to its former glory. This is our responsibility, for us and our children, and in doing so we will make the world a better and safer place.
