I hope everyone who can will be in New York on April 25 for the rally to Stand in Solidarity with Israel’s Right to Build and Live in Its Own Country.
This is a core element of resisting the Islamization of America: to stand in solidarity with the other states and peoples who are facing enemies holding the same ideology. The 20th-century jihad theorist Maududi wrote that “non-Muslims have absolutely no right to wield the reins of power in any part of God’s earth,” and said that if they do, Muslims have the obligation to dislodge them from that power by any means possible.
That is the ultimate basis of the jihad against Israel. Those who think that land concessions or a settlement freeze will satisfy the Palestinians have fallen for propaganda that is belied by the clear and unilateral language of the Hamas Charter calling for the total destruction of Israel, as well as by the ongoing refusal of Palestinian leaders to recognize Israel’s basic right to exist, and by the Islamic doctrine that states that any land that has once belonged to the House of Islam belongs to it by right forever.
A right understanding of Islamic theology and law leads to the realization that Israel can make NO concessions that will ever satisfy the Palestinians and end the conflict. The only thing Israel can do is stand firm. And it must stand firm against an Islamic supremacist enemy that would destroy it — the same Islamic supremacist enemy that, while substantially weaker vis-a-vis the U.S. than it is vis-a-vis Israel, has the same ultimate agenda here, and is asserting Sharia prerogatives in the U.S. already wherever and whenever it can.
As such, we in SIOA stand proudly with Israel. And we hope to communicate to Americans and to all others that our struggle and Israel’s struggle is the same. Were this generally understood by American, Israeli, and European leaders, we would not be in the fix we’re in today.
