Jihad: The Political Third Rail – What They Are Not Telling You is a conference featuring some of the premier American and international voices of resistance to the global jihad and Islamic supremacism. This inaugural event of the Freedom Defense Initiative (FDI), a new activist organization founded by myself and Robert Spencer, will be held at the Mariott Wardman Park Hotel, the site of CPAC, on February 19 from 10AM to Noon, in the Virginia Ballroom.
The conference is designed to educate Americans about the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration at the highest levels of the U.S. government, as well as its war on free speech: its attempt to silence and discredit those who speak up against the jihad and Sharia encroachment in the West. Emphasis will be on the international character of the jihad against the West and on how the Islamic war on free speech (and the media’s self-imposed blackout on this issue, as in the Fort Hood massacre) is part and parcel of the same jihad against the West that terrorists are pursuing by violent means.
Atlas readers are long familiar with the rugged individualist and warrior American, Lt. Colonel Allen West. West has been penning pieces for Atlas for years. His first column appeared here in March 2007 while he was stationed in Kandahar.
West still writes for Atlas. In his January 2010 column, he wrote about what the next three years of Obama could mean for America. “We continue to do the three things history, and sound economics teaches, say you do not do; print more money, borrow more money, and raise taxes. Of course this is all because the Obama, Pelosi, and Reid triumvirate have to grow the entitlement class in order to maintain their hold on power.” Meanwhile, “in the past year we have seen the Obama crew sailing all over the world promoting American values and traditions, way wrong answer….It was just pathetically appalling to watch an American President parade all over the world apologizing for the exceptionalism of our Republic, town hall meetings in Europe and China….why? However, it was even more disturbing to watch the submissive nature of this President before the Turkish National Assembly and at a University in Cairo. These speeches certainly projected weakness and a dhimmi (submissive) attitude to the clear and present dangerous totalitarian ideology which threatens our Nation and its interests.”
And that ideology is jihad, which hardly anyone in politics has West’s courage to discuss in public.
West is a Republican candidate for Congress in Florida’s 22nd congressional district. I am shocked that the GOP has not gotten behind him. He gets it. He knows what is happening and what needs to be done. It’s not enough to chat amongst ourselves. We must elect officials who see the serious damage being done to the basic foundation of this great nation. We need leadership that understands America, respects the Constitution, believes in small government, and has the fortitude to combat Islamic supremacism and the stealth jihad. We can affect change with the right leadership.
Michael Steele promised a return to the great Republican roots. Allen West embodies that. But Steele is delivering more of the same weak, mushy, Democrat-like leadership. This is unacceptable. There is no one who can wipe this man's boots. I cannot say enough about him. He is America. He is a leader. He best embodies all that is good, right and true. West is a ganser mensch. A leader in the mold of Churchill and Patton. If America is to be saved, it will be with the leadership of great Americans like West.
If you missed Allen West's recent remarks concerning jihad, Here's an excerpt:
“You want to dig up Charles Martel and ask him why him why he was fighting the Muslim army at the Battle of Tours in 732? You want to ask the Venetian fleet at Lepanto why they were fighting a Muslim fleet in 1571? You want to ask…the Germanic and Austrian knights why they were fighting at the gates of Vienna in 1683? You want to ask people what happened at Constantinople and why today it is called Istanbul because they lost that fight in 1453?
You need to get into the Koran…and understand their precepts. This is not a perversion. They are doing exactly what this book says.”
And Col. West reminds us of what should be self-evident, contra the willfully blind, delusional apologetics embraced by our current political and military leadership:
“Until you get principled leadership in the United States of America that is willing to say that, we will continue to chase our tail, because we will never clearly define who this enemy is, and then understand their goals and objectives—which (are) on any jihadist website—and then come up with the right (and) proper objectives to not only secure our Republic but secure Western civilization.”
