Justin Smith has sent two articles, some Justin quotes and some photos demonstrating the religion of Islam is diametrically opposed to anything Western Culture and opposed to any religion that is NOT Islamic, particularly Judaism and Christianity. Justin makes clear that he is in the Counterjihad camp that the label “Radical Islam” is a huge misdirect. The entirety of Islamic doctrine displayed in the Quran, Hadith and Sira (one could include Islamic theological theologians respected by current Muslim theologians such as respected Islamic Theologian Ibn Taymiyyah (Of interest: Ibn Taymiyya: the father of modern Muslim terrorism? – Ibn Taymiyya’s Theodicy of Perpetual Optimism) and influential Islamic treatises such as “Reliance of the Traveller” By Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri. Here is a “Traveller” analysis.
You will quickly discover that Justin his little tolerance with Counterjihadists (or multiculturalists for that matter that claim true Islam is not a terrorist ideology) that try to distinguish Moderate Islam from Radical Islam. It is my humble opinion when Counterjihadists make the distinction, it is out of political correctness. The reality is the theological tool of Islamic Dualism enables a Muslim to follow any peaceful dictates from the Quran, Hadith and Sira. But what the knowledgeable Muslim will not tell you is the Islamic theological term of Abrogation (See Also: “David Bukay on Islamic Abrogation” posted 6/21/08) can be used to override any Quranic peaceful tenet by the simple fact of the date of the of the newer displaces the older. Hence, all a peaceful Muslim needs to know to transform into a terrorist is to understand the Islamic principle of Abrogation.
I like Justin’s intro to his submission; hence I am using an except from his submission email as the intro to his own thoughts.

It is right and proper that America stands with Israel, because most of the current uproar against Her is steeped in the Islamic hatred for both Jews and Christians and the Islamic nations’ desire to wipe Israel from the face of the earth. Muslim Arabs cannot and never will accept a Sovereign Jewish State in the middle of an area that they have claimed for Islam and Allah, and since Israel was under the occupation of the Muslim hordes of the Ottoman Empire for so many centuries, today’s Muslims across the globe believe that this conquest makes Israel theirs and Allah’s until the end of days.
I think many readers will find these most revealing in a variety of ways, and if We are ever to turn away the evil growth of Islam in America, We Must Educate Our Citizenry to Islam’s EXISTENTIAL THREAT and the LIES that Islam has used to insulate itself and hide behind.
For all men and women capable of using their own ability to reason — Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new and I’ll show you that these things were only Evil and Inhuman; such was his command to spread this Islamic ideology and the so-called “faith” — this so-called “religion of peace” — he manufactured and delivered by the sword and mayhem, kidnappings and slavery, chaos, rape and murder. ~~~ Justin O Smith
The Clarion Project is a worthless entity in the fight to halt Islam and the terrorism that accompanies it, so long as the Clarion Project continues using the term “Radical Islam” as if Islam contains any component that does not demand its own supremacy above all ideologies and religions.
Even Islamic scholars, the theologians of Al Azhar and the Mullahs of Iran — even PM Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, All Agree That There Is Not Any “moderate” or “radical” Islam. There IS ONLY ISLAM AS IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN FOR MORE THAN 1400 YEARS.
Islam is only “a religion of peace” so long as it and its evil and backward Sharia Law doctrines go unquestioned, unchallenged and accepted as infallible by the inhabitants of whatever domain it controls. Islam is only “a religion of peace” once all non-Muslims are either converted or murdered — in the streets, in their beds as they lay sleeping — trapped in cages and set on fire or hung from scaffolds and cranes, or simply decapitated and their heads placed on spiked poles in horrific fashion for the world to behold — ISLAM — in all its sick, perverse evil.~~~ Justin O Smith
US Embassy Move Helps the Fight Against Radical Islam
May 14, 2018

Today, the United States moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital city, Jerusalem. The move is significant – it marks a recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city by the U.S. and an end to the dispute of its status by the world’s foremost superpower.
The move is also significant in the battle against radical Islam. Here are four reasons why:
- The move marks an end the era of appeasement of radical Islamists
Congress passed the bipartisan Jerusalem Embassy Act in 1995 which required the U.S. Embassy in Israel to be located in Jerusalem. It was unanimously affirmed by the Senate in 2017.
Up until President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, U.S. presidents declined to act on the bill, citing security concerns. That was a code word for appeasement of radical Islamists (as well as other Arab nationalists, like the Palestinian Authority, which conveniently pulls out Islamist tropes [Blog Editor: This is me admitting to literary ignorance. I had to look up “trope.”] for violent jihad when it suits their purposes).
As it has been proven historically, appeasement has only led to the emboldening of violent Islamists and has been the impetus for broad-scale and unrelenting terrorism, both against Israel and the U.S.
(The opposite is also true. Far from causing a world conflagration as predicted by various elements which have traditionally taken the appeasement route, the recognition by Trump that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel passed with narry [sic] a whimper in the Arab world.)
The embassy move is a message to Islamists: There will be no more appeasement.
- The move puts Islamists on notice that the US president keeps his word
Former president Obama famously vowed the use of chemical weapons in Syria was his red line. When Syrian President Assad pulled out the weapons and used them on his own people, Obama reneged on his promise to take action, serving to embolden the Syrian despot even further.
That’s just one example.
World powers have already gotten the idea that Trump is a force to be reckoned with. One gets the idea that his saber rattling against North Korea was not a bunch of empty promises, as we have already witnessed substantial progress with North Korea, from their willingness to come to the table to talk about getting rid of their nuclear weapons to the release of political prisoners to the U.S.
- The move tells Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah and the rest of the Islamist world that the US is serious about standing up to them
Jason Greenblatt, a key player in Trump’s Mideast negotiating team, said the move “show(s) that America will always stand with Israel.”
Said another way, the move demonstrates in a dramatic way (i.e., going against the stance of the European Union) that it supports a country that actually fights radical Islam instead of giving it lip service.
Tiny Israel has risked war with Iran by not crossing its own red lines – which, at the moment, have to do with making sure that Iranian forces and their advanced weapons are not knocking on Israel’s borders or being transferred to Israel’s enemies like Hezbollah. To this end, Israel has repeatedly attacked Iranian installations in Syria and been willing to face the consequences.
Similarly, Israel is currently showing the world it will not back down when threatened by the Islamist terror organization Hamas on its southern border.
- The move is a way to get radical Islamists to accept reality and move on
Greenblatt also noted the move is “not a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace deal. Rather, it is a necessary condition for it.”
In other words, the Arab World needs to accept the reality of the State of Israel, make peace with it and stop using the issue as an excuse for not getting their own houses in order.
We see this has already happened in the Sunni states of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt. Under tremendous and potentially disastrous threats from not only from their own radical elements but from Iran, these states have chosen to accept (and even embrace) the reality of the State of Israel, which they rightly believe can help them win these battles.
Blog Editor: Justin originally linked to the below video via the Gatestone Institute. I’m not exactly sure where Justin got the first paragraph, but the second paragraph is from the GI page. The GI page is dated 5/14/18 9:30 am
Too often these scenes of chaos and mayhem are staged and there are high tech cameras and film equipment operating behind the scenes, almost as though on a movie set.
If Palestinians managed to breach the fence, they will presumably kill and capture as many Israelis as possible, while calling it a “return.” If Palestinians are killed, Hamas can always blame Israel.

From inside Gaza, the reality of the so called “peaceful demonstrations”. Watch Hamas hate speeches. See how they build their propaganda at the expense of brainwashed, deceived and manipulated unfortunate people. Understand why Israel has no choice but to protect itself using lethal force
Amazingly, not a single elected Democrat is here to celebrate this historic event in Jerusalem, a bonafide [sic] signal that they do not stand with Israel.
There is nothing “extremist” about this view. This is Mainstream Islam thinking. ~~~ Justin O Smith
U.S. Muslim preacher: “Soon, America will be ours”
May 13, 2018
“In a few centuries, in Syria, where more than 90% percent of the population were Christians, and in Iran where an overwhelming majority of citizens were Zoroastrians, the demography drastically shifted to majority-Muslim. Neither nation could have anticipated such a change.”
And here in the United States: “The number of Muslims in the US has increased by 40% in just five years — between 2010-2015 — while in the same period the non-Muslim population of the US has grown by only five percent.”
You see who is responsible for this: the man who was President of the United States during those years. He is the one who pursued reckless immigration policies that have placed the U.S. in this situation. He is the one who remains responsible for the great strife and violence that his actions will be bringing to America for generations to come.
“Radicalism: The Real Shock Was the Reaction of the Americans…,” by Majid Rafizadeh, Gatestone Institute, May 12, 2018:
“Soon,” said the letter, “America Will Be Ours”.
The writer, it became clear, was an extremist Muslim in the U.S. who claimed to be a reputable religious preacher. With each new word, concern grew.
He pointed out, throughout the letter, the “sinful” ways of the West: dancing, drinking, dating…
He expressed disgust that most women did not wear the hijab or participate in prayer five times a day. Then he got straight to the point: “Ours,” he explained, represented Muslims like him.
The sentiment is hardly a new one. A person hears similar proclamations from many Muslim extremists throughout the years. The real shock was not letter but the reaction of many Americans after seeing it.
Such a thing, they said, could never happen. The writer’s words were “just bluster,” nothing to be taken seriously. Most surprisingly, they stated — honestly — that Muslims who speak of such intentions do not really mean what they say, so these threats should not be cause for concern.
The history of the two nations where I grew up — Iran and Syria — taught all of us there a big lesson about living in this kind of ignorance: the reality of how quickly a nation can be consumed by the philosophies of a religious state. An authoritarian and malicious regime, as exists now in Iran — the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism and brutal even to its own people — is something we cannot forget.
In a few centuries, in Syria, where more than 90% percent of the population were Christians, and in Iran where an overwhelming majority of citizens were Zoroastrians, the demography drastically shifted to majority-Muslim. Neither nation could have anticipated such a change.
While many may underestimate the radical preacher’s claims that “Soon, America Will Be Ours”, for extremist Muslims these beliefs are strongly and deeply rooted.
Many extremists believe that their religious desire — for a “Muslim takeover of the White House, a directive from Muhammad himself ” — is coming true in the US. Religiously speaking, for these Muslims, ruling America is Allah’s (God’s) word, a sacred promise is coming to fruition.
A recent survey and demographic research released by the Pew Research Center found that Muslims will soon overtake members of other religions, including Jews, as the second-largest religious group in the United States.
This issue should not be taken lightly. What does being the second-largest religion in a country mean? Voters impact local and national politics, swing domestic elections, elect more representatives from the same religious affiliation, are influential enough to determine who the next president of the United States may be, and change the laws of the land. All it takes is a subtle shift in power for the entire society, political system and culture of a nation to be changed.
The number of Muslims in the US has increased by 40% in just five years — between 2010-2015 — while in the same period the non-Muslim population of the US has grown by only five percent. This means that the Muslim population is growing almost eight times faster than the non-Muslim population in the US….
