America is at War with Islam

America is at war with Islam:  It needs to be said; it needs to be understood; and it needs to be embraced if we are ever going to win the War on Terror.  Does this mean that we need to invade countries and kill every Muslim in the world?  Absolutely not!  Wars are not always fought on the battlefield with armies.  Sometimes we need to win the war through intellect, but in order for us to win our war we need be honest with ourselves and name our enemy.

America is at war with Islam
Radical Muslims want to rule the world

We were at war with an opposing ideology last century.  We called that war the Cold War, and we fought in on the world stage against the U.S.S.R. and their Communist ideology.  The Cold War had a few hot flashes in Korea, Cuba and Vietnam, but for the most part it was won by the west through financial and ideological superiority.  No American President ever said that Communism was a reasonable alternative to our capitalist way of life.  The rights of free people were never compromised in an effort to merge the two systems of Government.   

Presidents from both parties condemned Communism.  Ronald Reagan was not alone when he famously described the Soviet Union as the evil empire.   He was simply building on John F. Kennedy words when JFK said “this [is] a struggle for supremacy between two conflicting ideologies: freedom under God versus ruthless, godless tyranny."   With the two parties united against an enemy of America, we were able to work together as a nation to bring down the evil empire.  If we substitute our past enemy (communism) with our current enemy (Islam) our former president Ronald Reagan could provide us quotes like this:

"The years ahead will be great ones for our country, for the cause of freedom and the spread of civilization. The West will not contain Islam, it will transcend Islam. We will not bother to denounce it, we'll dismiss it as a sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages are even now being written."  -modified Reagan quote
Our current war has failed to define our enemy.  Are we fighting the Sunni, the Shi'a, the Wahhabi, the Taliban, Al Qaida, or any other entity?  Our leaders only know one thing for sure; we are not fighting Islam.  At times it evenseems as though we are fighting for Islam rather than against it.  In Afghanistan we were fighting the Taliban, and now Obama is trying to befriend the Taliban.  In Iraq first the Sunni Muslims were our enemies, and then the Shi’a became our enemies.  Now it is neither, or both, who knows we are out of there!  In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood was a terrorist organization, but then Obama forced Mubarak to step down to allow the brotherhood to take control.  The danger is not only do we not know who we are fighting, but we are wasting blood and treasure fighting undefined wars without a clear enemy or objective.  What is victory?  What good does it do Americans to see Middle Easterners with purple fingers from voting for leaders that are hostile to the United States?  Give me an Arab king that is a friend of America over a democracy that votes for Taliban style Islamic rule any day of the week.

No American President should ever pretend that Islam is our moral equivalent as a form of religion or government.  Islam is not just a religion; Islam is a political system.  Our academics are telling our leaders that political Islam is a reasonable option for the Middle East.  They do not think that political Islam is a problem, which might have something to do with President Obama’s failures in Egypt and Libya.   Say what you will about Christianity, but it is undeniable that Christianity has built the greatest societies in the world today.  Christianity has built nations that allow for religious freedom and peace among men.   This stems from the golden rule of Christianity which states “thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”. 

Some will claim that Islam is also a religion of peace, but the reality of the world says otherwise.  Political Islam has been implemented in countries throughout the Middle East.  Its Ideology breeds suicide bombers and hatred toward other races and religions.  Women are stoned and beaten for trivial offences, children are killed for the honor of the parents, converts are killed for apostasy, Christians are killed for spreading the Gospel, and Jews are killed because they are Jews.  Islam is not a peaceful religion; Islam is a religion of death and oppression.  The claim that there is a difference between Bin Ladenism and political Islam is wishful thinking in my opinion.  The risk of allowing for the unimpeded expansion of political Islam into a Muslim Caliphate is too great to allow.  Who are we going to believe our own lying eyes or some university and political eggheads when it comes to the threats that we are currently facing?  These experts are the same ones that are telling us to watch out for people with Ron Paul bumper stickers, do you really want to put our very existence in jeopardy over their politically correct hunch?

Qur'an (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
Given this fact, America needs to stop giving legitimacy to this ideology of Islam.  We need to preach against Islam.  Whether that means that we are combating Islam through theology, or condemning the evils of Islam on the international stage; it means that we are recognizing our enemy and confronting it whenever possible.   When was the last time America condemned a Muslim nation for executing Christians, Jews, Hindus, or Buddhists for their religious views?  America is supposed to be the beacon of freedom, yet we are silent on these issues of religious intolerance in the Muslim world.  We hear more on our so called news when an American threatens to burn a Quran than we hear then a Christian gets beheaded for his faith.

 Our country is more worried about what Muslims think of us, than supporting what is right.  We cower when Muslims riot in outrage over the acts of our “infidel” soldiers, but where is our outrage?  Muslims do not care how we view them, because they do not respect us as a people.  We are the enemies of Islam from their point of view, and they are fighting us as their enemies.  It is time for us to engage in this Cold War.  The truth is that Muslim nations are never going to like America.  We are the number one hurdle  --the great Satan--  that they must overcome for their dreams of an Islamic world system to become a reality.

The left wants to equate all religions and say that we are at war with “religious extremists” and many on the secular right agree.  This line of thinking is muddying the waters on our current War on Terror.  When we allow North Africa to fall into the hands of the Muslim radicals it shows the complete lack of vision from our leaders.  If we secure Iraq now what is going to happen?  Now we have the Muslim brotherhood running Egypt and radicals running Libya.  Guess where terror is going to ferment next.  We will never secure the region as long as Islam is taught unopposed in the Middle East.  

We watched the rebels in Libya brutally murder Kadafi.   These are not civilized people, and we cannot treat them like they are post war Germany ready to rejoin Western culture.  These are third world desert people trapped by a 7th century ideology.  The Egyptian Brotherhood already said that if we stop bribing them with foreign aid, that they will attack Israel.  So we are paying them a Jizyah as a reminder of our inferior status as per the Quran.  

In order to defeat Islam we need to stop its growth by any and all means possible.  We should start a propaganda war immediately showing the errors in the teachings of Mohammad.  We should schedule debates and televise them throughout the Muslim world.  We should not stand back and allow this religion to go unopposed.  Whenever a Muslim state kills a person for his religion the leaders of that nation should be held on charges for crimes against humanity.  If America wants to call itself a beacon for liberty and freedom, then America needs to start shining the light of truth on this evil religion.

Should America support Liberal Israel

We are constantly told by both liberal and conservative politicians, newsmen, and preachers that America should support the nation of Israel.  We are told that they are God’s chosen people.  We are told that they are our great ally, even though they don’t do much for us.  We are told that we have to protect them from extermination.  Apparently this means that we have to fight their battles for them.  Our politicians are so deep in the tank due to money from the Jewish lobby that they have decided to give Israel $3 billion worth of foreign aid in 2012.  America also gives Israel military assistance and access to advanced weapons.  Israel does work with us militarily, but so does France.  The difference is that I never hear anyone telling me that we need to support France.  America does get some intelligence from Israel, but Israel steals more intelligence from us than we will ever receive in return. 

Israeli Espionage

 "According to a U.S. intelligence agency, the government of Israel conducts the most aggressive espionage operations against the U.S. of any U.S. ally."
A defense intelligence report said Israel has a voracious appetite for information and said, "the Israelis are motivated by strong survival instincts which dictate every possible facet of their political and economical policies. It aggressively collects military and industrial technology and the U.S. is a high priority target."
Given Israel’s strong survival instincts, how can we trust them not to manipulate intelligence that we receive from them?  The fact that they spy on us aggressively shows a lack of respect and gratitude that Israel has in its relationship with America.  Do you think that Israel is going to give us honest information about their enemies when they are busy manipulating us on our home soil?  I do not think so.  I think that they give us hyped up intelligence designed to demonize the enemies of Israel.

America can gather its own intelligence

America should not be relying on foreign nations for our intelligence needs at all.  If we are in desperate need for intelligence, then we should fund the CIA with some of that Israeli welfare that we send over in the form of foreign aid.  It is fine to work with foreign nations against mutual enemies, but why should we want to be at the mercy of any foreign nation’s intelligence?  This isn’t the cold war where we had one common enemy with our western allies.  Great Britian didn’t have to win us over to their cause against the USSR.  In this case Israel reports to us on Muslim nations, but not all Muslim nations are hostile to America.  Jordan is not our enemy, Turkey is not our enemy, Iraq is not our enemy, but they may be the enemies of Israel.    Israel will chant their mantra “never again” to us, stating that they will never again go quietly into the gas chambers.  That is great, but we should never again trust them to feed us intelligence information.

American Jews are Liberal Obama Supporters

It also troubles me that I am expected to support Israel while Jewish Americans are busy tearing our country down.  In the 2012 elections 78% of the Jewish faithful voted for Obama.  So we are supposed to fight Israel’s wars against the Muslims while Jewish Americans are doing their best to push a Muslim sympathizer into the White House.  Apparently Jewish Americans are not worried about Israel or America, so why should the rest of us Americans bend over backwards for Israel?  If the 22% of American Jews that did not vote for Obama want special treatment for their homeland, then perhaps they should get their fellow Jewish Americans on board first.  I am too busy fighting a battle at home against the people that liberal Jewish Americans are helping to push into office to fight Israel’s wars too.  My existence and the existence of freedom in America are more important to me than the physical nation of Israel.  I live in America and you probably do too, so maybe you (whether you are Jew or Gentile) need to put America concerns ahead of Israel’s concerns.

Christian Opposition to Israel as a holy nation

I am not a Jew, I am a Christian.  Israel is the holy land since God walked the very ground that the country sits upon.  But, my religion does not require me to take pilgrimages to Israel.  I don’t need to kiss a rock, wail at a wall, or visit the Church of the Nativity.  The Jewish temple was destroyed around 70 A.D. and rebuilt in three days as Jesus Christ said.  Our bodies are now the temple of God.  God is with us, and he will not move to some future temple in the Middle East.  Jesus was God’s perfect and final sacrifice for sin; therefore, we do not need any additional payment for sin.  If we attempt to replace the sacred blood of Jesus Christ with some animal blood from a rebuilt Jewish temple, we will be mocking God and spitting in the face of Jesus Christ.   

 Israel is an Anti-Christ nation, and it is no different than any other heavily atheist nation in the world (at least 44% of Israeli Jews are atheist).  Even if Israel was full of faithful orthodox Jews, it would not be a nation of God from my Christian perspective.  The Bible tells us “Whosoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father: [but] he that confesses the Son has the Father also” (1 John 2:23).   This verse does not leave room for interpretation.  Either God is a liar, the Christian Bible is false, or Jews do not have the Father with them.  

 Many Christian leaders want to tell us that Israel is a nation composed of God’s chosen people.  They claim that if we don’t bless Israel, that we will be cursed based on Genesis 12:1-3.  It is true that Israel was chosen from the time a Abraham to bring forth the Messiah and bless the entire world.  That is even backed up in the new testament in Galations 3:16 when Paul states that the promises to Abraham come to fruition through Christ.  The pro-Israel ministers do not offer any evidence for support of the physical nation of Israel from the new testament.

I don’t see any reason why God would side with a nation that denies his son in order to curse a nation composed of the body of Christ.  Is it even possible for God to curse himself, since many of us are the body of Christ?  Putting all of the theology aside, America isn’t looking very blessed these days. We are not receiving much of a blessing from the 78% of Jewish Americans that support liberal Democrats.  These "chosen people" are attempting to remove all Christian influence from our nation’s government and public schools.  They view the constitution as a living document that they can undermine through the legal system.  They also serve evil organizations like Planned Parenthood, the ADL, and the ACLU.

I realize that there is another 22% of American Jews and many of them are good patriotic Americans.  They contribute to our society and engage in the fight against the anti-American activities of the left.   My only issues with them is that they want me to support a Jewish nation while I watch their fellow Jewish Americans undermine our nation. We are giving billions of dollars to God’s supposed chosen people in the land of Israel, yet our nation is decaying morally, financially, and culturally.  Where is our blessing for supporting this "holy land"?  It looks more like a curse than a blessing to me.  Does that mean the $3 billion a year isn't enough money to show our support to Israel, or does it mean that the anti-Christ nation of Israel is not the Israel that God is talking about in Genesis 12?

I know that many people will immediately label me as an anti-Semite as soon as they see an article that is not in complete support of Israel.  That is how the left works, and sometimes the right wing takes a page out of the left's playbook.  If anyone criticizes one of the mainstream agendas of either party, that person is going to be labeled as undesirable.  We can not have independent thought now can we?  That might upset the Republican/Democrat balance in U.S. politics.  If we are worried about someone calling us a name, then we are never going to get anything fixed in this country.  These Jewish race baiters are wrong anyway.  I don’t condemn the Jewish people, or wish evil upon them.  I don''t side with the Muslims against them, but I do believe that both the Jews and Muslims follow flawed religions.  I believe that they need Jesus Christ to be saved just like everyone else in the world.  Someone’s Jewish ancestry does not save them from their sins.  If it did then Jesus’ apostles would have remained religious Jews, but they decided to become the first convert to Christianity.  If anything it is disingenuous toward the Jewish people for Christians to pretend that Jews should be held in reverence as God's chosen people when our Holy Bible tells us that they are in danger of eternal damnation.

We should support Israel as an Ally

 I think that America should be friendly towards Israel just like we have friendly relations with France, Germany, England, Japan, Canada and all of our other allies.  This “special” connection to Israel is what gives me problems.  Even if I am completely wrong about God’s relationship with Israel; I am confident that God can protect his people if he chooses to do so.  God does not need America to do his work.  He has an army of angels to do that.  If Jewish Americans want me to worry more about physical Israel’s survival, then they need to give me less to worry about in America.  Jewish Americans need to stop voting for liberal Democrats, and stop working toward the destruction of our nation.  This will allow Americans to focus on the problems of our allies a little bit more.  Unlike the Jewish people, most Americans do not have a special nation set aside just in case our nation falls apart.  We need to protect our homeland here in America more than we need to protect the homeland of a bunch of atheist Jews.  Many of the Jews in Israel are from Russia where they have been brainwashed for generations.  They were at war with us for 50 years, and we are still fighting against their powerful left wing organizations.  Those organizations are working diligently to corrupt the laws that  America's founders used to build our historically Christian nation.

What is the American Wing of U.S. politics

The American Wing is a site with ideas that are not endorsed by either party in U.S. politics.  The time for arguing about right wing or left wing politics is over.  We all need to focus on the American Wing of politics.  The American Wing will put forth ideas that very few will always agree with.  But, the ideas presented in the American Wing will always be designed with the best interests of America in mind. The ideas on the American Wing will not always be in the best interest of any particular political party, special class, or candidate.  Although, the American Wing will favor the Christian ideals and constitutional limits that were used to maintain and restrain the U.S. government in order to build the greatest nation in the world.

If America does not come together under a common American Wing of political ideology, our society will cease to exist.  America is not a nation united by race or religion.  Some people would even like to take away English as our common language which would divide us even further.  An American political ideology is the only thing that will hold us together.   Currently the American people are splintered along several different lines.  These splintered groups of people are either embraced or demonized by different political parties causing us to fight an ideological civil war.

Pyramid of the Capitalist system
The Capitalist System as described in the early 1900's

If you are on the left wing, you view the Republicans as the party of rich white Christian men.  You are taught to oppose everything that this group of people has every done throughout the history of the country.  You are taught from a young age that anything that was ever accomplished by this group of people was on the backs of minority groups.  You are told that this group of people wants to cling to power and repress every other group of people in the country.  You are told that if you continue to let the Republicans come into power that we will see black churches will burn; we will have a Christian theocracy; women will be forced back into the kitchen; and the poor will be hungry and homeless.  Republicans are painted as racist, bigots, that have absolutely no morals.  They are called anti science, pro pollution, and against the civil liberties of all people in favor of the industrial military complex and police state.

Anti Communist poster
Constant fear forces us to pick one party or the other

If you are on the right, you are told that the left is a bunch of communists that are hell bent on the destruction of America.  You are told that the left wants to redistribute the wealth of all Americans and squander it into wasteful pet projects.  You are told that the poor are poor because they are too lazy to work or get educated.  You believe that the Democrats wants to keep these people poor by supplying them with enough welfare to take care of their basic needs in order to lock up their votes.  You are taught that unions are the biggest problem in American industry. You are taught that the left opposes Christianity at every turn; opposes industry whenever possible;and opposes the civil liberties of all people in favor of lawyers, unions, and government authorities.  You think that the Democrats are the party of the immoral, drug addicted, lazy, criminals, coupled with communist ideologues that want to remake America into a socialist utopia.

 In the end we all suffer and our nation is led astray by substandard leaders that do not keep their promises or work in the best interests of their supporters.  None of our issues are ever resolved because politicians know that division can be exploited.  It is time for us to rise above the political game, and look out for the interests of America.  The American Wing will criticize leaders from both parties.  From President Obama and his failed economic policies to President Bush and his nation building.  

The truth is that most Democrats are not far left communists, and most Republicans are not looking to exploit everyone for higher profits.  It is the American Wing's view that both parties sell out the American people for corporate money and government power.  Both parties are not the same like some conspiracy theorists like to claim, but both parties are in need of serious reform.  There needs to be certain American ideals that both parties can agree on.  If we the people can not agree on these fundamentals of America, then we can not blame the politicians for exploiting our divisions.  Nothing is going to be fixed in Washington until all of the American people demand an American change.  Not just a change in the party that is running things.
