Islamic Terrorists Declare a Fatwa against the American People

The debate over whether or not we should go to war is almost too much to take. We ARE at war for G-d sake, what more proof do we need than the Holocaust that just occurred in New York City. We have just been dealt the worst military attack in our history. The debate over whether we are at war would be laughable except for the fact that over 6,000 innocent people are now dead.
A Muslim journalist interviewed Usama bin Laden for Newsweek, Jan. 11, 1999:
Question: Why have you asked Muslims to target civilian Americans all over the world? Islam prohibits its followers from killing civilians in war.
Bin Laden: If the Israelis are killing small children in Palestine and the Americans are killing innocent people in Iraq, and if the majority of the American people support their dissolute president, this means the American people are fighting us and we have the right to target them.
Question: All Americans?
Bin Laden: Muslim scholars have issued a fatwa (a religious order) against any American who pays taxes to his government. He is our target, because he is helping the American war machine against the Muslim nation.
This commentary appeared onABCNEWS.com, Jan. 1999 (on Usama bin Laden): "His fatwa was clear: Americans must die, within the next few weeks.
U.S. troops will leave Saudi Arabia when Islamic terrorists "send the bodies of American troops and civilians home in wooden boxes and coffins," Usama bin Laden vowed in an exclusive interview with ABC NEWS Correspondent John Miller. "We don't differentiate between those dressed in military uniforms and civilians. They are all targets in this fatwa."
Bin Laden recently convened a meeting of fundamentalist extremists and sponsors of terrorism. More than 150 clerics named themselves the "International Islamic Front for the Jihad against Jews and Crusaders," and issued a variety of fatwas."
The words and actions of Bin Laden and company reflect a strange and toxic mix of radical Islamic belief and left-wing propaganda. The doctrine of moral equivalence, which holds, for example, that the unfortunate killing of a child in the course of war is the equivalent of the deliberate killing of children as an act of war is classic left-wing doctrine. This is how the left excuses the murder, according to the Black Book of Communism, of over 100 millionpeople in the name of socialist progress.
The Terrorist enemy embodies a faith similar to that of the Nazi's except that instead of the Nazi brew of socialism and new age religion, they amalgamate socialism with Islamic extremism. Like the Nazi's and Communists before them, the Islamic terrorists seek a new world order with themselves in charge. Like the aforementioned socialist movements, they believe that they possess a superior morality, which entitles them to control others. Like their socialist counterparts, they are moral relativists; they actually believe that they are behaving humanely and for the greater good when they kill.
The United States and the other western democracies, left-wing propaganda notwithstanding, do not seek to dominate or convert the Islamic nations. In fact, we couldn't care less of they practice Islam or anything else as long as they respect our sovereignty and observe a bare minimum regarding human rights. It is the radicalized Islamic nations, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Sudan and others who are arming themselves for aggressive war and aiding and abetting subversive militias abroad. They strain their resources to accomplish this goal while their own people live in squalid conditions.
They war against us not because of our wealth, our race, because they seek to re-distribute wealth, or for any discernable tangible gain. They war against us, and kill our people, because they believe that Allah commands them to do so. They consider us to be profane not because we are capitalists, but because we have not succumbed to their faith. They are at war with all non-Islamic nations and peoples while also warring with Muslims who don't bow to the yoke of their narrow utopian dictat. They must be utterly defeated like the Nazi's before them in order to reestablish a semblance of peace and law and order. ***
