“Many of the principles of radical Islam are incompatible with Western values and institutions. Remember this, radical Islam is anti-woman, anti-gay and anti-American. I refuse to allow America to become a place where gay people, Christian people, Jewish people are targets of persecution and intimation by radical Islamic preachers of hate and violence… This is not just a national security issue. It’s a quality of life issue. If we want to protect the quality of life for all Americans – women and children, gay and straight, Jews and Christians and all people then we need to tell the truth about radical Islam and we need to do it now.” – Donald Trump, quoted in “Finally: A realistic plan for fighting the Jihad and protecting Americans” by Robert Spencer – “frontpagemag” June 14th, 2016.
“ISIS believes that by repeatedly wounding and provoking the West, it can reignite a war of civilizations. And though the West is vastly superior in nuclear weapons and conventional arms, economic power and technology, ISIS believes it can gradually drive the West out of the Middle East, as it has already helped to drive the Christians out… Then, ISIS believes, through mass Muslim migration into a West whose native-born are dying out, Muslims can reoccupy these lands they had almost wholly conquered, until stopped by Charles Martel 13 centuries ago.” – Patrick J. Buchanan, “Is Islamic terror America’s future?” – June 17th, 2016.
“Islam can provide a powerful language and tool to commit the worst crimes, while at the same time the perpetrators of those attacks feel blessed, privileged, rewarded and on the winning side… simply stating that Islam does not have to do anything with these violent acts is not a constructive; it is just a way to avoid tackling the problem. As Muslims, we need to accept the fact that there exist some parts in the religion of Islam that gives social, political, religious, and cultural legitimacy to violence. Otherwise these Islamist groups would not have flourished.” – Majid Rafizadeh, “It Is the Duty of Muslims to Speak Out” – Gatestone Institute, July 11th, 2016.
“…Muslims want to take over the West, force everybody to become a Muslim, rob/enslave/murder those who don’t, and turn our society into the cesspools which these same Muslims fled from… It’s not hard to understand this is their goal. Muslims have been saying this for over fourteen centuries. We know this because they have written thousands of books themselves documenting this, let alone what non-Muslims have said. Even in just the past ten years, there are almost innumerable examples of Muslims saying these things and after saying them, following up with actions meant to disrupt, intimidate, destabilize, harm, or destroy the very things they said said they were targeting. It is not hard to see because the crimes they commit are so obvious they cannot be covered up.” – Walid Shoebat, “Western society is being taken over by Muslims because it refuses to acknowledge reality for what it is” – Sons of Liberty Media, July 24th, 2016.
“Erdogan will use the coup as an excuse to accelerate the Islamization of his country and to lead Turkey deeper into the darkness engulfing the Muslim world. His vision is one of a neo-Ottoman megalomaniac… And the leaders of the ill-fated coup? What did they stand for? Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s legacy and a secular constitution. One of the great men of the last century, (an innovative general by background) pulled Turkey from the wreckage of World War One, abolished the caliphate, suppressed fanatical religious orders, gave women legal rights and social protections, banned the veil, promoted secular education for all citizens of Turkey, strongly advocated Westernization and modernization…and promoted a democratic future…” – Ralph Peters, “Turkey’s last hope dies”, Fox News, July 16th, 2016.
