The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

    The Long and Bloody History of Islamic Terrorism
    Written by Barbara J. Stock
    Saturday, July 16, 2005

    The Sunday morning pundits preach that the terrorist attacks around the
    world continue because American troops remain in Iraq. These so-called
    "experts" claim that Iraq is a training ground for attacks in Europe
    and America. Have these armchair-terror-experts forgotten the 50-year
    Islamic training ground called Israel?

    These "experts" also seem to believe that this split between so-called
    "moderate" Muslims and the Islamic terrorists is something new.
    These "experts" have missed the mark by about 1300 hundred years.
    The present Islamic terrorists are a result of the split within Islam
    between Muslims who wish to live in the 21st century, secular Muslims,
    and the followers of "True Islam" who want the world to be ruled by
    Islamic Sharia law with the Quran as the new world constitution.

    The recent attack in London proves the line between a "moderate"
    Muslim and a terrorist is very, very thin.
    It seems with only a small
    dose of "True Islam" a peaceful Muslim can become a mass murderer.

    Islamic terrorism started long before there was an Israel.

    Sunni and Shia Muslims have been killing each other since the death
    of Mohammed.

    Centuries ago, Islam ruled a large part of the world and Muslims had
    spread out of the Middle East and moved across Europe, conquering all
    in their path. At Islam's pinnacle, the Ottoman Empire stretched from
    Egypt to the Black Sea and from the Persian Gulf to Hungary.

    So what happened to the glorious Islamic empire? Today, Islam blames
    the Crusades, the Jews, Western culture, and Christians for its fall
    from power. In truth, the most destructive enemy that Islam has ever
    had was Islam itself.

    As the world modernized around them, the Islamic leaders refused
    to move forward with the rest of the world. Firmly believing in
    Islamic superiority, the pompous ruling class of religious leaders
    planted the seeds of hatred towards the West as far back as the 1700s.
    The ruling Islamic religious leaders believed western inventions were
    evil things created by evil and inferior people.

    Any attempt to modernize the empire was put down by the ruling
    Islamic body called the ulema which wanted to hold onto its power and
    maintain Islam in its pure state. This meant no non-Muslim influence
    of any kind.

    It should be no surprise that the western advancements in warfare
    eventually overwhelmed the archaic ways of Islam. The Islamic dream
    of ruling the world, was over.

    At the end of World War I, France and England carved up what was
    left of the once great Islamic Empire. All that remained was Turkey.
    It was the Islamic Turks who slaughtered over 1.5 million Armenian
    Christians. The Turks blamed the Armenian Christians for assisting in
    Islam's fall from power. Islam has a long history of blaming others
    for its failures.

    The new leader of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal, wanted Turkey to join
    the modern world and insisted on a separation of mosque and state,
    something that infuriated the Islamic leaders. Kemal declared Islam
    the national religion but did not allow the controlling and backward
    ways of Islam to destroy the new country. The battle rages today in
    Turkey between the Islamic leaders and the secular government.

    Slowly, the Islamic leaders are winning.


    By 1924, the glory days of Islam were over.

    This inner battle for Islam stewed after the fall of the Ottoman
    Empire and Middle East came under the influence of western culture.

    Secular Arab governments, which accepted western modernization,
    drove the followers of True Islam into a murderous rage.

    Today's terrorist movement started in 1928 with the founding of Ikhwan
    al-Muslimun, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, to oppose the Arab
    secular governments that stripped the Islamic elite of its power.
    This group, led by Hassan al-Banna, felt no Islamic country should
    tolerate a secular government. Islam had always been the judge, jury,
    and executioner over the people.

    This militant group armed and trained itself and became such a problem
    for the Egyptian government that the terrorist leader, al-Banna,
    was executed but this only elevated him to martyrdom. The movement
    grew in power and status.

    In the 1950s, a new and extremely radical leader, Sayyid Qutb,
    convinced his followers that the Quran justified the killing of fellow
    Muslims. In his book, "Milestones," he encouraged a jihad to remove
    secular Muslim leaders and claimed it was the duty of all Muslims to
    return Islam to its former power and glory. Following strict Islamic
    law could only do this. Secular Muslims were put in a category with
    Christians and Jews--they were infidels.

    Sayyid Qutb was also executed by the Egyptians in 1966, but the
    Islamic terrorist movement grew and expanded and now has branches
    of loyal followers in over 70 countries around the globe and these
    Islamic terrorists are more than willing to kill for their cause.

    The embarrassing defeat of Islamic/Arab countries by the lowly
    "monkey-Jew" in the 1967 Six Day War gave fuel to the Islamic terrorist
    movement. This humiliating loss to the tiny Jewish state was proof
    for Islamic terrorists that secular Islamic states were against all
    that was Islamic. Islamic countries were defeated by a people that
    True Islam does not even consider human.

    Mu'ammar Qaddaffi seized power in Libya in 1969 and he used Libya's
    vast oil wealth to fund Islamic terror around the world. A decade
    later, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini overthrew the secular government
    in Iran by taking the American embassy personnel hostage and keeping
    them as prisoners for over a year.

    The 1980s saw the Iranian-backed terror group, Hezbollah strike
    American troops on a peacekeeping mission in Lebanon and the American
    embassy was bombed. The United States made the tragic mistake of
    leaving Lebanon, and the Islamists saw this as a sign of weakness,
    and a rash of attacks on Americans continued unpunished around the
    world for the next two decades.

    True Islam had its golden moment on 9/11 when it succeeded in attacking
    the "great Satan" on its own soil. Their bragging and celebration
    was brief. The American response to that attack took the terrorists
    by surprise. Believing America was a weak paper-tiger, I believe the
    invasion of Afghanistan surprised bin Laden. The loss of Afghanistan
    enraged the Islamists. Afghanistan was True Islam's model for the
    world. Even more insulting was that the majority of Afghani people
    seemed to welcome the overthrow of the Taliban.

    True Islam couldn't care less about the overthrow of Saddam
    Hussein. The fact Saddam is Muslim means nothing to them. He was a
    secular infidel. Iraqi Muslims who wish to remain under a secular
    government are slaughtered like sheep because they too are considered
    un-Islamic infidels. Radical Islam knows this may well be its only
    chance to subjugate the Iraqi people under strict Islamic rule and
    take possession of an oil-rich terrorist training base. If True Islam
    were to gain control in Iraq, it would immediately join forces with
    Iran to wreck havoc on the world.

    Once a great power, Islam has now been reduced to training the
    gullible to strap bombs on themselves and blow up a bus or train
    full of civilians. Radical Islamic leaders have only one goal: To
    make Islam the only religion, and to put Islamic leaders in command
    over the entire population of the world. To accomplish this, western
    civilization, Christianity, Judaism, secular Muslims, and all other
    non-Muslim forms of religious beliefs, must be exterminated.

    There has been one important adjustment in True Islam's plan.

    It no longer shuns modern weapons and technology. Indeed, Islamics
    believe that the detonation of nuclear weapons on American soil will
    bring them a quick victory. This is a serious miscalculation on True
    Islam's part. A very deadly miscalculation.

    If one studies the history of Islam and its violent roots, it is not
    difficult to understand it. Islamists have killed millions of people
    over the centuries and killing millions more to accomplish the goal
    of total Islamic rule does not disturb them.

    The number of moderate-secular Muslims is declining as true Islam
    spreads its rage and hatred to every corner of the world. Time is
    short. Iran may be only months away from obtaining nuclear weapons.
    There are reports that several nuclear weapons are already here and in
    place in America. There can be no signs of weakness from the western
    world. There can be no negotiations or deals made with True Islam.
    There can be no quarter given.

    History has taught us one thing: It is us, or them. There is no middle
    ground with terrorists. True Islam has not changed in 1400 years. It
    is not going to change now.

    Saddam Attacked in Court

    Saddam Attacked in Court
    By Cihan
    Published: Sunday July 31, 2005

    An unidentified man attacked ousted Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, who appeared at a court hearing in Bagdat (Baghdad) on Thursday.

    An exchange of blows took place between the perpetrator and Saddam during the trial attended by defense lawyer Khalil Dulaimi. A statement by Saddam’s attorneys said, “As the former president stood to leave the courtroom one of those present in the court room attacked him and there was an exchange of blows between the man and the former president.” Saddam’s defense team alleged that the head of the tribunal did nothing to stop the attack. It was not announced whether or not Saddam was injured in the scuffle.
    "All truth passes through three stages:
    First, it is ridiculed;
    Second, it is violently opposed; and
    Third, it is accepted as self-evident."

    Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
