This is our first issue of our current terrorism update which was started in 2002.
Many of you probably only have a limited view of world terrorism and that is probably what you learn from the news. There is much more behind it then what the press and those on the Left would like us to know. Most people who condemn the U.S. for its war on terror, for the most part have no direct knowledge or facts and are just repeating talking points from the left. That was the occasion when I met George Hassan. There were a small group of people in my office and one of them a non American was saying how bad America is for attacking the poor terrorist and terrorism was all America’s fault. If only we treated people right and talked to the terrorist, things would be better needless to say my response was heated.
But I heard the best defense of America and a statement about America’s greatness not from an American but from an Iranian, George Hassan, who is an Muslim. I knew at that point that this was a man I wanted to get to know. He will continue to contribute to our updates.
I can highly recommend you read my first book ‘Hostile Intent” which gives the history of my journey to find the source of terrorism.
The word Terrorism came into use during the French Revolution in the 1700’s. That defined the use of terrorism even by governments or movements who used violence to promote their cause. We know that evil, killing and violence in what ever name has been around since the beginning of time. In my book Hostile Intent I trace the first act of terrorism back to the battle in Heaven when Lucifer tried to over throw God. Sound like familiar? Someone trying to take over from some one in power. Of course we know that attempt failed and the rest is history.
Terrorism has come in all shapes, forms and used by people of every faith and background. Always it has been used to promote a cause. I tell all my friends around the world if some one is trying to get you to do or believe like they do and are using violence, then run the other way. You know it has no validity if violence is needed to enforce it.
Terrorism was used to enforce communism on many parts of the world. Of course Hitler used terrorism to enforce his attempt to destroy the Jews and the list goes on. The current brand of terrorism is used by evil people who use Islam as vehicle to divide people and promote their attempt to control the world. Please read George Hassan’s report in this issue and you will see the start of our current problems. Also I recommend his book Iran: Harsh Arm of Islam, a must read for all who want to be informed and with knowledge there is power.
Are all Muslims terrorist? A loud NO NO NO.
I have friends who are Muslims and from all parts of the Muslim society and every one condemns terrorism. The recent Fatwa by Saudi Arabia against terrorism should put to rest all the doubts about where they stand on terrorism. For those who don’t know a Fatwa is a religious ruling that sets the tone for what the Muslim leaders say and do and is a message for the people to follow suit. There is a law being drafted as i write this in Saudi Arabia to enforce the Fatwa. The ruling covers every act of terrorism including the funding, encouraging or supporting terrorism. We should send a big thank you to the Saudis.
The next big battle for us in this war on terrorism is to get it back to being a war not an over seas contingent. We are loosing face and ground over seas and are looked at as being weak and without moral courage to support our friends. The fall election in the states will determine where we win or loose this international fight to keep our country free and safe and in a direct way the free world.
In future issues I will deal with more facts to try and give knowledge for you to make good decisions. All I ask for is and open mind as you read our updates and the then you make your decisions.
Be safe and remember with knowledge there is freedom and with freedom of the people there is power. Phil Little
