Islam, Islamism, and America

Understanding the difference between Islamism and Islam is vital to our American culture and vital to our national security.

Roger Gardner has written a very good explanation of this difference on his blog, Verbatim.

. . .Islamism is not a religion. Islam is a religion. Islamism, like all of those other familiar isms -- communism, socialism, fascism, etc. -- is an aggressive political movement. . .

Today I decided to revisit some of the articles we’ve written in the past year about Islam and Islamism . Perhaps our questions and conclusions will stimulate questions of your own?

No More Border Watch - Mexico 2nd Happiest Country in the World! A Gallup poll this summer of more than 1,000 Americans showed that 39 percent were in favor of requiring Muslims in the United States, including American citizens, to carry special identification.

Anti-Islamofascist Blogger Censored What do we know about the censorship threat from Islamofascists ?

U.S. Military to Ditch the Red Cross for the Red Crystal Why would the US Military ditch the Red Cross in favor of the new Red Crystal?

Five American universities, including Carnegie Mellon and Georgetown, have opened satellite campuses in Qatar. Is that really a good thing???

Islamification, Christianity and WWIII: Islam’s Subtle Political Maneuvers I have written earlier that our freedom of expression, freedom of equal protection as citizens, and the “wall of separation” between church and state in the United States, as guaranteed by the Constitution and the 1st, 2nd and 14th amendments, is vulnerable to being undermined for one specific reason. Our nation has never attempted to define what constitutes a religion. . .

Illegal Immigration: Protecting the American Dream or America’s Commercial Interests? Why the war against radical, militant Islam will be lost in the halls of Congress and on the air waves as public officials and talking heads slowly erode the will of the American people to press on towards victory.

CAIR, the Flying Imams & 9/11 Flt. 93 Can you remember the chilling transcript of 9/11 hijackers praising Allah as they took the flight down?

Let's talk about the children Now that we see the enemy and we see the value they put on life, someone please make Washington politicians understand what we are up against.

Sunni al-Qaeda Split in Iraq? Remember Abu Ghraib, where real atrocties were committed, every day, before U.S. Troops arrived?

Keeping Racism Alive by Eradicating White Privilege We are already seeing the beginnings of the creation of the American Islamic Victims Card, and along with that will come new concessions and special privileges.

America’s Jihad Sympathizers Why is the book, “The Enemy at Home”, published 2007 by Doubleday, causing apoplexy among lefty bloggers?

  1. Dear Faultline,
    Thank you for mentioning my Islamist piece. I'm sure you'll agree, we are fed so much false information by those with their own agenda that it's sometimes pretty difficult to ferret out the truth. And without access to the truth we are fighting in the dark.
    Sites like yours are, in my opinion, essential for this reason.

    I recently joined the writing staff at Political Grind, where, hopefully, I can add one more voice to this crucial battle of ideologies.

    I've added your site to my favorites and will visit often.

    Best wishes,
