Ridiculous to the extent of stupid and funny however the implications are dark:
Mr. Obama embraced a disputed method for counting civilian casualties that did little to box him in. It in effect*counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.
This counting method may partly explain the official claims of extraordinarily low collateral deaths.
In a speech last year Mr. Brennan, Mr. Obama’s trusted adviser, said that not a single noncombatant had been killed in a year of strikes.
And in a recent interview, a senior administration official said that the number of civilians killed in drone strikes in Pakistan under Mr. Obama was in the “single digits” — and that independent counts of scores or hundreds of civilian deaths unwittingly draw on false propaganda claims by militants.
Even more repellent was John Podhoretz’s argument in 2006*that “the tactical mistake” which “we made in Iraq was that we didn’t kill enough Sunnis in the early going to intimidate them and make them so afraid of us they would go along with anything,” specifically that the real error was that the U.S. permitted “the survival of Sunni men between the ages of 15 and 35.” In other words, “all military-age males”*in Sunni areas should have been deemed “combatants” and thus killed. Podhoretz’s argument created all sorts of outrage in progressive circles: John Podhoretz is advocating genocide!
in American media discourse, the definition of “militant” is*any human being whose life is extinguished when an American missile or bomb detonates*(that term*was even used*when Anwar Awlaki’s 16-year-old American son, Abdulrahman, was killed by a U.S. drone in Yemen two weeks after a drone killed his father, even though nobody claims the teenager was anything but completely innocent: “Another U.S. Drone Strike Kills Militants in Yemen”).
Brackets below are mine:
In another chart, also acquired by Danger Room, an Afghan soldier or policeman ready to snap could be someone who “appears frustrated with partnered nations”; reads “questionable reading materials” (a hinting reference at the Quran and other Islamic books?); or who has “strange habits (prays the obligatory prayers?).”
Again - This may be ridiculous to the extent of laughable, but I don't think hitler was this paranoid of EVERYONE who just may possibly be unhappy with his criminal acts - and he certainly didn't go to such lengths to eliminate resistance, for Hitler it was a few groups, for the Satanists in Washington - it's EVERYONE.
إِذا جاءَ نَصرُ اللَّهِ وَالفَتحُ
When comes the Help of Allah, and Victory,
وَرَأَيتَ النّاسَ يَدخُلونَ فى دينِ اللَّهِ أَفواجًا
And thou dost see the people enter Allah\'s Religion in crowds,
فَسَبِّح بِحَمدِ رَبِّكَ وَاستَغفِرهُ ۚ إِنَّهُ كانَ تَوّابًا
Celebrate the praises of thy Lord, and pray for His Forgiveness: For He is Oft-Returning (in Grace and Mercy).
Quran chapter 110
لا يَتَّخِذِ المُؤمِنونَ الكٰفِرينَ أَولِياءَ مِن دونِ المُؤمِنينَ ۖ وَمَن يَفعَل ذٰلِكَ فَلَيسَ مِنَ اللَّهِ فى شَيءٍ إِلّا أَن تَتَّقوا مِنهُم تُقىٰةً ۗ وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللَّهُ نَفسَهُ ۗ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ المَصيرُ
Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah
: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا مَن يَرتَدَّ مِنكُم عَن دينِهِ فَسَوفَ يَأتِى اللَّهُ بِقَومٍ يُحِبُّهُم وَيُحِبّونَهُ أَذِلَّةٍ عَلَى المُؤمِنينَ أَعِزَّةٍ عَلَى الكٰفِرينَ يُجٰهِدونَ فى سَبيلِ اللَّهِ وَلا يَخافونَ لَومَةَ لائِمٍ ۚ ذٰلِكَ فَضلُ اللَّهِ يُؤتيهِ مَن يَشاءُ ۚ وَاللَّهُ وٰسِعٌ عَليمٌ
O ye who believe! if any from among you turn back from his Faith, soon will Allah produce a people whom He will love as they will love Him,- lowly with the believers, mighty against the rejecters, fighting in the way of Allah, and never afraid of the reproaches of such as find fault. That is the grace of Allah, which He will bestow on whom He pleaseth. And Allah encompasseth all, and He knoweth all things.
إِنَّما وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّهُ وَرَسولُهُ وَالَّذينَ ءامَنُوا الَّذينَ يُقيمونَ الصَّلوٰةَ وَيُؤتونَ الزَّكوٰةَ وَهُم رٰكِعونَ
Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah, His Messenger, and the (fellowship of) believers,- those who establish regular prayers and regular charity, and they bow down humbly (in worship).
Let us always remember that the work of dawah is not diminished by those who strive in God's cause, rather - people come to the religion of Allah in crowds when we are unafraid to openly proclaim our stance on the truth and love for our brothers and sisters who strive in God's cause, it is then that Allah's help comes and victory and acceptance of Islam on huge scales.
Recall Makkah (dawah) vs medina (brotherhood+struggle) years.
Tyrants and desposts don't give you rights from the goodness of their hearts, but due to those who struggle and fear of mass opposition:
الَّذينَ أُخرِجوا مِن دِيٰرِهِم بِغَيرِ حَقٍّ إِلّا أَن يَقولوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ۗ وَلَولا دَفعُ اللَّهِ النّاسَ بَعضَهُم بِبَعضٍ لَهُدِّمَت صَوٰمِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوٰتٌ وَمَسٰجِدُ يُذكَرُ فيهَا اسمُ اللَّهِ كَثيرًا ۗ وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِىٌّ عَزيزٌ
(They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause) except that they say, \"our Lord is Allah\". Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his (cause);- for verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will)
Ah! ye are those who love them, but they love you not,...
So let us think twice before we appease the kuffar (who don't give a **** about what we think) and disown our brothers who strive in the way of God as they ought to strive. Because history speaks for itself:
Pastor Niemöller spoke for the thousands and thousands of men like me when he spoke (too modestly of himself) and said that, when the Nazis attacked the Communists, he was a little uneasy, but, after all, he was not a Communist, and so he did nothing; and then they attacked the Socialists, and he was a little uneasier, but, still, he was not a Socialist, and he did nothing; and then the schools, the press, the Jews, and so on, and he was always uneasier, but still he did nothing. And then they attacked the Church, and he was a Churchman, and he did something—but then it was too late.
AND IF ANYONE HAS ANY DOUBTS ABOUT WHAT MY ALARMIST MIND IS SEEING, CONSIDER THIS LITTLE EXCERPT AND COMPARE IT WITH OBAMA'S ANERIKKKA:
