How do we combat Jihad?
We recognise it for the Act of Treason that it is. We recognise that the global counter-terrorist war we have (half) been engaged in is a war against the Jihad being waged against us. Whether Jihad is prosecuted against us by violence or by the black propaganda of internal enemy organisations like Cageprisoners, we deal with Treason accordingly, we deal with captured enemy accordingly.
Any Muslim who says the West is waging a war against Islam is committing Treason. Any non-Muslim who says the West is waging war against Islam is committing Treason. It is enemy black propaganda. At time of war, aiding and abetting the enemy should lead to immediate incarceration. We should have military tribunals to deal with these incarcerations according to the rules of war. We need to have our own Guantanamo’s. Not just for our domestic jihadists, but for those on the Marxist left and the Jew haters who make common cause with Jihad. After 12 years of being at war, it is time we got up to speed on what being at war means.
Unlike Melanie Phillips whom I hugely admire, I have a lot of time for the Prime Minister’s diplomatic hypocrisy over Islam in the wake of the Woolwich Jihad atrocity. There are a lot of British Muslims who practice their religion through the prism of the common humanity that binds us all. The last thing any decent human being wants to see is a violent backlash against innocent British Muslims at the hands of opportunist racists like the EDL. President George W Bush did of course set this great example of restraint and tolerance in the wake of 9/11.
However, too much diplomatic hypocrisy leaves us vulnerable. We encourage the enemy to think we are utterly stupid, we encourage ourselves to be utterly stupid.
One still marvels that most of the country thinks that when waging a counter-terrorist war there is something wrong with having TPOWs (Terrorist Prisoners of War) in Guantanamo or wheresoever.
Who has been at the forefront of fomenting this suicidal idiocy? The BBC.
The anti-western narrative of its predominantly left wing news and current affairs coverage of the Afghan and Iraq wars has played directly into the hands of jihad propaganda.
Possibly, the best example of the BBC’s complicity with the enemy, is that brainchild of former Guantanamo inmates Moazzem Begg and Binyam Mohamed, Cageprisoners. It could not be more patently obvious that Cageprisoners is a Jihadi propaganda organisation. The best argument in favour of Guantanamo is that Jihadists want to close it down. Moazzem Begg and Binyam Mohamed should be in a British Guantanamo yesterday. BBC journalists like Steve Evans and Angela Saini who do their propaganda work for them should enjoy a nice friendly chat with officers from MI5 on the meaning of Treason, and be left in no doubt that the next time they commit it they’ll be in a jail cell within 24 hours.
That’s how wars are fought. If we don’t fight this war we’re in, we’re going to lose it.
