Since the attacks of Sept. 11th 2001 a new generation of Americans have been subjected to the effects of the phenomenon called Terrorism.

Invoking the interest of national security and public safety in response to terrorism, this generation of Americans witnessed the erosion of their civil liberties and dilution of the Bill of Rights; namely the right of free speech and press, the right to keep and bear arms, the right to be secure in our papers and persons, the right to protection against illegal search and seizure, and other protections afforded the individual.

In the name of Terrorism, the TSA violates the 4th Amendment rights of millions, ranging from searching people who have not committed any crime and  seizing their belongings without warrants,  to submitting to an electronic strip search under penalty of law.

So what is Terrorism, that the most free people on Earth should be intimidated into surrendering the Bill of Rights to it, and forget that an entire Revolution and ensuing wars killed millions of American soldiers defending it?

Terrorism is a weapon of war.  It is a psychological warfare tactic that targets the civilian population in a systemic manner through the threat of indiscriminate violence that renders the government helpless to stop it in the eyes of their constituents.  Terrorist tactics erode the public confidence in their government’s ability to protect them from it.  So in response, the government imposes harsh laws that limit liberty and seize more power away from the individual in an attempt to appear as protecting the public from the terrorists.

The terrorists objectives are to coerce the government into changing their policy by pressuring the public, through deft manipulation of media coverage and bombardment of psychological conditioning until they incrementally submit to the terrorist demands.

A radical form of Islam had arisen on the Arabian peninsula coinciding with the ascension of the United States of America about the time the U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1791.

The media terms; “Radical Islam”, “Islamic Fundamentalism”, “Islamic Jihad”, among other acronyms of “terrorist groups” all describe the ideology that supplanted  Koranic Islam as taught by the Prophet Mohamed.

A man by the name of Mohamed abd Wahab, who was a teacher and friend in the royal house of Saud, gave rise to “Wahhabism”.   Wahhabism is an extreme form of Sunni Islam dominant in the Arabian Peninsula.

Today, the oil rich Gulf States are all dominated by Wahhabism.   Springing from Wahhabism comes an even harsher and more radicalized extreme theology called; “Salafi.”   The Salafi are so extreme that they consider Wahhabis liberals and all other forms of Islam as apostate, to include the Shia, and every other religion as infidels to be killed, slaughtered, and enslaved.

Rich Gulf States - wahabbis

The Gulf states, are dominated by the Sunni brand of Islam, while Iran and Iraq are the Shia brand, and their corresponding sub-divisions of families, tribes and clans that control territories and regions that do not recognize the borders shown on your geography maps drawn up by former European colonial powers.

The rich Gulf States not only control Oil and the refineries that convert it into fuels but the shipping lanes carrying the precious commodity to the industrialized nations.  The Sunni Wahhabi dominated tribes like the Royal family of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates are enriched by our treasure, are in turn the source of  funding and growing terrorist attacks targeted against the West.

What has been kept from the American public is the complicity between state sponsors of global terrorism and their Sunni royal sponsors, rising from their  corresponding tribal loyalties.

Terrorism is their weapon of choice. America is the target. Christians and Jews are their enemy.   The leader of Al-Qaeda on the Arab Peninsula has declared war on the United States; ” We must eliminate the cross and the cross bearer is America.” ~ Al-Wuyashi

These are the  “Salafi” groups responsible for the mass beheadings, slaughtering of Christians and the acts of sustained and unrelenting psychological warfare directed at the West in general, but the United States in particular, to create public fatigue and hopelessness against resisting them.   Their goal is to cause the American public to submit to their will by pressuring the targeted government to surrender to their demands.

The word Islam does not mean peace, as the media has tried to inculcate it to the masses, but the true meaning of Islam is to “submit”, to “surrender”.    Terrorism is the means by which psychological warfare directed at terrorizing the population into ‘surrendering’ or ‘submitting’ to the will of the Salafi goal of recreating a global Caliphate, by first defeating the only Christian nation on Earth with the material means to stop them.

They know they cannot win militarily, so they must win psychologically first.  For that to happen America must of necessity be weakened in order that it surrender to “Salafi Islam”.   That is what terrorism is.
