President George W. Bush, the President of the United States of
America has lied to us from the beginning of this war to the present
day. I forgive him, as you should, because his lie is justified
Halakhicaly. Already you can see that I am not jumping on
the bandwagon being driven toward the brink by the two Johns. I
will start with where he is not lying, and has not ever lied to
us, and then I will tell you the horrible truth that George W. Bush
may not speak.
- Saddam Hussein was a grave, serious, immediate threat to the
United States and the world. The Ba'athist regime in Iraq
and its leader, the Dictator, Saddam Hussein was a supporter of
terrorists and other terrorist regimes throughout the world. Not
only has it been proven post the downfall of Saddam, that his
regimes had several meetings and gave some aid to members of Al
Qaieda, but Saddam regularly wrote checks to compensate "martyrs"
of the intefada. The organizations and the resident Arabs
within and without the State of Israel all mourned the fall of
Saddam Hussein. These people named and still name their children
after Saddam Hussein. They received payments of large sums of
money in checks signed by Saddam Hussein thanking them for sending
their children to commit homicide/suicide. Saddam Hussein was
a patron of Hamas, and other terrorist groups.
- Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The record
of Saddam's production is clearly written in "his own handwriting."
In the reports submitted to the United Nations Saddam recorded
in great detail how much of each chemical and biological agent
he had in stores within Iraq. In the highly bureaucratic paranoid
world of Ba'athist Iraq, Saddam had records of everything.
His record keeping was meticulous and included videographic recording
of beatings and other tortures imposed upon "enemies"
of the State. Saddam Hussein, near the end told the UN that he
destroyed these weapons and had no record of their destruction.
Since the war that deposed Saddam Hussein, we have found several
chemical weapons. Please note that there were several reliable
reports of chemical weapons shells used against coalition forces.
Those opposition to the war insist that three shells containing
ricin wich when fired didn't disperse the deadly poison don't
constitute "chemical weapons." Whatever is found on
the ground and whatever is proven "without a reasonable doubt"
to have existed, or to exist is shrugged off by the opposition.
There are credible reports that just prior to the war which deposed
Saddam, he shipped large quantities of equipment, armaments, and
weapons systems to Syria "for safe keeping in trusted hands."
- Saddam Hussein participated with Muammar Khaddafi in the development
of the "Arab Bomb" in a secret site in Libya. Saddam's
participation in this program is well documented in documents
partially released by Libya and the United States. It is recorded
that Saddam Hussein funded the development of site in a hollowed
out mountain in Libya, and that Saddam's engineers participated
in the design of every aspect of the site now being dismantled
by agreement with Muammar Khaddafi. Tons of equipment have already
been removed from the site and delivered for burial in the United
- Saddam Hussein "most likely" was engaged in an attempt
to purchase "yellow cake uranium" from Niger. The verification
of this information was released in the 9/11 Commission Report,
based on the original report from the person who went to Niger
to investigate. That same American diplomat later wrote a book
in which he claimed that he knew the "President was lying"
in the State of the Union Message. But he never officially recanted
his original report. His original report stated categorically
that emissaries from Saddam Hussein had been in Niger and there
was no other plausible reason for this mission than to negotiate
the sale of yellow-cake to Iraq.
So when did the President of the United States lie to us?
The President has said on several occasions, "this is not
a Religious War."
Our enemy has declared time and again that this "is a Religious
War" and that we are the target of that War as long as we do
not submit to [their own interpretation of "True"] Islam.
We are the Crusaders and deserve to die. We are the cause of the
acts against us. We are doomed to lose this war unless we submit
to the "Will of Allah" as they preach it. The war is a
Jihad, a holy war in defense of Islam, and all who do not
follow the narrow interpretation of the Holy Q'ran as interpreted
by the Wahabi sect, are infidels and worthy of death.
Who are the infidels? The infidels are Jews, Christians, Buddhists,
and any other non-Muslim believes, and any other people, including
but not limited to, storekeepers in Iraq who sell alcoholic beverages,
western music, short skirts, and anything else that these people
determine undermine "true Islamic practice." This war
is integral to the beliefs of the Wahabis. The Wahabi
sect of Islam is the State Religion of "our friend" Saudi
Arabia. This is "a Religious War," and you should have
not doubt about it. It is "a Religious War" because the
enemy has declared that it is; just as much as it would be a "gun
fight" even if only one side had guns.
When the attack against the Spanish commuter train was accomplished,
the official statement of responsibility claimed that among the
reasons that the attack was perpetrated, was the "expulsion
of the Moslems from Spain in 1492" and that they would continue
to attack the Spanish until the entire Iberian peninsula was returned
to Arab rule.
The sooner we come to terms with these ideas, the safer we will
be, and the more likely we will be to survive with more of our cherished
pre-9/11 lifestyle intact. Be assured that we have already been
changed by the war in ways that will irrevocably change our lifestyle
from what we remember before 9/11.
Throughout history, every attack against civilization by marauding
barbarians takes its toll on civilization. Every attack changes
civilization, and sadly, historically, the marauding barbarians
almost always win; at least the first round. If you plan to live
several hundred years, though, there is good news. The marauding
barbarians eventually become quite civilized, and intermingle their
civilization with the defeated civilization. This is a cultural
hybridization bringing new blood into the mainstream of world history,
not just at the level of cultural development, but also at the level
of variety in the gene pool. That, however, as I said previously
will occur within the next several hundred years after a worldwide
victory for Wahabi Islam.
If you are not willing to submit to that, then you must fight. You
must fight. You may not relent, and you should probably adopt an
aggressive posture and not a defensive posture. These people are
our enemies. They want to kill us and destroy our way of life. If
history is a reliable witness, (and I am not talking about 1,000
years ago, but rather about Bosnia and Sudan), they will kill you
and your children in front of your wife and then rape your wife
repeatedly while telling her how blessed she is that she will soon
bear a child of a victorious Mujahadeen warrior.
Why do I approve of President George W. Bush lying to us?
We are an open society. We are multicultural at least to the extent
that rump Yugoslavia was multicultural and, we must be careful not
to enrage our component communities against each other.
Were the President to declare that this is indeed "a Religious
War," the President would be personally responsible for the
deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Muslims and others throughout
They can declare "a Religious War" against us, but we
must keep a low profile and allow the non-Wahabi Muslims
to join with us, if they chose to, in our war against this warring
faction. Our only hope to help the "other" Muslims survive
this war is to allow them the freedom to align themselves against
the Wahabis, and to help them understand that in the eyes
of these Wahabi, they too were Infidels, and were aligned
with the "Crusaders." You can see the beginnings of this
in Iraq, as the marauding barbarians in Iraq are directing their
war against Muslims who disagree with them, Egyptians, Pakistanis,
and others who do not fit in with the Neo-Taliban barbarian
marauders. This puts us in a fair amount of risk, but it is not
only consistent with our traditions of openness, it also allows
us the possibility of limiting casualties in both the long and short
What we must not ever forget is that the enemy is engaged in "a
Religious War." They will not accept any resolution to the
conflict other than their ultimate victory or our total defeat and
destruction. Remember that, and forgive the President for lying.
In war we have to consider both tactics and strategy. What we call
this war is, in the end, far less important than that we win it.
What you must understand now is that we cannot settle for anything
other than the absolute defeat of our enemies, or they will win.
In their eyes we are all "Crusaders," and nothing can
change their minds about that.
