Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch is worried that National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster may lead President Trump into error on the nature of Islam. And he may be right about that. But he may be underestimating Trump, too. Trump came to the Presidency from a life long successful career in big-time wheeling and dealing with all sorts of powerful men, foreign and domestic, many of whom were his enemies. I doubt that anyone in Washington could teach him very much about diplomacy.
At question is McMaster's conflation of the word Jihad with the term "Radical Islamist Terrorism", as if acts of Jihad were not called for in the Koran itself, and not an integral and inseparable part of Islam. And projecting the falsehood that "terrorism" that is born of Islam is somehow not of "True" Islam, not what Mohammed taught and practiced, and not absolutely demanded of disciples in the Koran, the Hadith, and verified by 1,400 years of the barbaric, brutal, conquering and dominating history of Islam.
And Spencer is right to worry about these things. Past Presidents have fallen into that very trap, believing, by all outward appearances, that Islamic Terrorism and "True" Islam were two totally separate things, which they are not. Islam calls for terrorism, quite explicitly.
But some of these barbaric nations may be of use in destroying the current worst of the Islamic Jihadist organizations, or driving them deep underground and/or out into the Civil Jihad Islamic diaspora, where they would not be such a grave threat to the nations of the Middle East.
The mere fact that Islamic nations are anxious to ally with us and with Israel, whom they rabidly despise, against a such a bold and "out in the open" Islamic Jihad organization as ISIS speaks volumes. They fear ISIS even more than they hate Israel. This can be and perhaps should be taken advantage of.
The real reason these nations fear ISIS is that ISIS is doing precisely what the Koran and Mohammed instructs all disciples of Islam to do, and all of these nations are not doing that, or not doing it to the same degree. That makes ISIS into the most correct form of Islam within view of the whole Islamic world, and that makes the governments of all these Islamic nations illegitimate, in the eyes of true Islam. It makes Moslems who know their Koran want to join ISIS against the Islamic nations.
If Trump is true to his instincts, after having talked with leaders of Israel, Islamic nations and "Palestinian" representatives, he will know that a "two-state solution" is quite impossible for Israel. So long as all Moslems, including Palestinian Moslems, are reading the instructions in the Koran to kill the Jews wherever you see them (Surra 2:1191), there will never be any peaceful coexistence possible between the Islamic Palestinians and the Israelis.
How can two different peoples live together in peace when one of them is called by its common religion to kill the other one?
This is so glaringly obvious that one has to wonder how every single American President who ever addressed the problem didn't see it. Of course, Comrade President Obama, peace be upon him, who did indeed see it, portrayed Islam as the good guy and Israel as the bad guy in the whole scenario. He clearly hated Israel as much as he hated Constitutional America.
What President Trump needs to know (and probably does know) is that there is not and never was any nation with a government called Palestine. The whole region was called Palestine in antiquity, but there never was any such actual nation. Israel, on the other hand, has been a nation, on and off, for thousands of years. The land was populated by Jews, then Christians and Jews together, and then later by Moslems, after Islam was invented.
Only Moslems practice Jihad. Jews and Christians don't do that. Only the Moslems. And when the Moslems rose up to destroy the new nation of Israel, and lost the war they started, the kicked-out losers began calling themselves Palestinians, and pretending that they had a nation called Palestine, and Israel brutally kicked them out of it.
What much of the world does not realize is that these are the Moslem Palestinians. Not the Christian Palestinians, and not the Jewish Palestinians, and not any other kind of people who lived in that land other than the Moslems. The ones who are sworn to acts of terror and murder and mayhem against the Jews and the Christians in particular, and against every other kind of people who are not Moslems.
These Moslem "Palestinians" are a murderous and terroristic people, not welcome even in Islamic ruled nations, because they are even more murderous and terrorist that any of the Islamic nations that refuse them refuge. They are nothing but trouble wherever they go, and all Islamic rulers know it, and will not allow them to settle within their borders.
The call for a "Palestinian Homeland" for them is the excuse for carrying this political agenda of Moslem expansion all the way to conquering Israel, with garnered sympathy and support from the Western world. All of Islam jumps on that bandwagon, including the nations that will not welcome the Palestinians within their own borders. The greater cause, for them, is the elimination of Israel.
I doubt very much that President Trump could really fall for this,
and I pray that he will not.
Long live Israel; and long live the USA.

The Islam Pages
With war declared on the whole non-Islamic world in the year 622 A.D., no one should have been surprised at Osama Bin Laden's declaration of war in 1966. Mohammed himself declared war on us long before we existed as a nation. To find the true source of the "radicalization" of peaceful Moslems into Jihadism, all you have to do is read the Koran. It's all right there, and there is nothing radical about it.
The Islam Pages: Setting the record straight for the non-Islamic world. The Islam Pages describe the war declared upon us all by Mohammed after the Hijrah in 622 AD.
"Civilized" Islamic Nations versus the True Islamic Religion. When Politics drives Religion in Islamic Nations, the whole world is safer; when Religion drives Politics in Islamic Nations, the whole world is menaced.
On the necessity of using Barbarian Allies against the worst Barbarians. Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other Moslem nations so fear ISIS that they will ally with despised America and Israel against it. But never forget that Barbarian Allies are still Barbarians, at the core.
Civilized Moslems: Ataturk's Turkey and the Shah's Iran had them. Once, Civilized Moslems, Educated Women and Peaceful, Attractive, Beautiful Cities predominated in lands where now we see little other than Typical Islamic Barbarity.
The Islamic Connection between ISIS, Random Terrorism and Global Jihad. It is the unseen Islamic Connection that is conquering Western Civilization: The Known Terrorist Groups, Native Born Convert Terrorists, Global Jihadists, etc. are all Moslems who read the same Koran.
The sole path to Islamic Heaven is to die a martyr in performance of Jihad. That's it. Islam assures no one else of salvation. Male martyrs get a permanent erection; female martyrs get a permanently erect penis. No kidding.
The Looming Islamic War: Sunni, ISIS, Shia, Kurds, Russia, Israel, USA? Sunni nations allying with Israel against ISIS? Excuse me? Shia nations allying with Russia? Who's on First here?
The Source of Radical Islamic Terrorism? Mohammed and the Koran. Radical Marxist Terrorism comes out of the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital. Similarly, Radical Islamic Terrorism comes right straight out of the Koran.
Should we treat Islam differently than other religions? If not, why not? Doesn't Islam treat the whole non-Islamic world differently than it treats Islam?
Refuting Mohammed and his ideology of conquest masquerading as a religion. Here we refute Mohammed, who should be seen as little more than a popular fraud among pagans.
The "Palestinian Problem" is just an Evil Mask; it's really an "Islam Problem". There was no state or nation of Palestine when modern Israel was born. It was Islam, not Palestine, that attacked Israel in 1948.
The Truth about Islam, finally, in a homily at Mass. You never hear the unvarnished truth about Islam, or other evils, from Catholic clerics. Maybe that's finally changing.
American survival itself depends on getting Islam out of America. Cult forms Culture; Islam forcibly attacks all non-Islamic cultures. American national existence depends upon getting Islam out.
Recognizing, at last, the Islamic Declaration of War on Human Civilization. Congress should Recognize the long existing Islamic Declaration of War, and Declare War against ISIS and all other active Islamic Jihad organizations.
The common link between Paris, San Bernardino, 9/11, etc.: Islamic Jihad. It was common, ordinary, every day Jihad. No one was radicalized; nothing was hijacked; no one went berserk.
The argument within Islam, and about Islam, regarding the true nature of Islam. The true nature of Islam: Ron Paul, King Saud, Ali Khamenei, Comrade Obama, all have their versions.
The French Islamophobia: Was it real? Or is Islam really something to be feared? If the French Islamophobia turns out to have been warranted, what about ours?
What would War on Islam look like? Would victory even be possible? With what successful overall strategy could we wage war on an ideology?
Definition of Islam: Ideology of Military Conquest Masquerading as a Religion. The Definition of Islam describes the “Convert, Submit or Die” War Strategy of Mohammed.
The Islam Way Versus The Way of the Lord, and the way of Western Culture. The Islam Way stands at loggerheads with the moral, social and civil codes historically common to Judeo-Christian, Western Civilization.
How Orthodox Mainstream Islam Opposes America, and all other National Existence. Islam's Lesser Jihad seeks to (1) Convert All, or (2) Subjugate All, or (3) Kill All. Islam opposes America and American national existence.
The hard, cold, truth about the murderous nature of the religion of Islam. Islam is a religion of Peace? Excuse me? If that's true, then you must agree that Islam has a very funny way of showing it.
OK, the strictly Koranic Islamic teaching on infidels isn't TOTALLY murderous. A changing view on the Islamic teaching on infidels, and other important issues this political election season.
The Islamic Theocracy menace Vs. the U.S. Constitution First Amendment. How to attack the expanding Islamic Theocracy here while remaining true to the Constitution: SANE may have found the way.
Could we, and should we, outlaw Islamic Sharia in the US? Our Constitution guarantees freedom of religion; but what of a "religious law" legal system that has a core goal of the destruction of our Constitution itself?
Can we outlaw Islam in the USA and still be a free thinking society? I say we can and should outlaw any ideology that seeks the elimination of Constitutional America.
Again, it's Israel up against what appears to be the whole pea-picking world. Weak lip-service and pretty speeches aside, America is Israel's only real ally. And, as war is imposed upon her again, even many Americans are lukewarm in their support. Why?
The latest Israeli conflict is little different from all the previous ones. The first Israeli conflict with her neighbors, and every one since then, has been a simple matter of self defense.
Faith And Reason Vs. Islam: A Pontiff on faith and reason again, and again, etc. It is and has always been faith and reason vs. Islam; Islam is unreasonable, it's faith equals submission, and it is by nature violent and war-oriented.I
slam is the enemy; the non-Islamic world just doesn’t know it yet. I keep saying that Islam is the enemy here, and you keep not wanting to hear it. But it's true.
The Ground Zero Mosque. The ground zero mosque is an Islamic slap in the face of all 9/11 victims.
Tolerating intolerance of America is what Americans are being trained to do. In tolerating intolerance of themselves some Americans think they are proving something or other.
More concessions to the Palestinians? Do concessions run on a one way street? Israel is called to make more concessions to the Palestinians. It is never the other way round.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.
Three fatal oversights of the top conservative cognizanti: Glenn, Rush and Sean. Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity are on the right track, but just nibbling around the edges of who the enemy is.
n support of American Nationalism and American Patriotism. American Nationalism and American Patriotism have been demonized long enough.
Argument opposing Sharia law as brutal, oppressive and murderous. Opposing Sharia Law means opposing brutal domination, wife beating, child abuse and even bloody murder.
Who "radicalized" the Boston Marathon Bomber brothers? It's the Koran, Stupid. Yes, it's the Koran, stupid, and it's mainstream Islam, and there's nothing radical about either of them.
Fair warning: Beware of the Moslem Liars holding olive branches and smiling. If you have Moslem friends, you need to learn about the religious Moslem Liars
War Begets War: It's About Islam; It Always Was. Undoing Islamic Lies of "Peaceful" Moslem Propagandizers.
Rethinking War on Islam: War on "parts" of Islam, or, Unlimited War. Rethinking War on Islam may mean a perpetual state of war, for Islam's evil cannot be separated out.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
