This is the purpose of Universal Jihad:
Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and program.
Does the paragraph above sound like something written by an anti-Islamic bigot, someone "out to get Muslims"? It wasn't. And it wasn't written by me. It was written by the most influential Muslim theologian and thinker of the 20th Century, Syed Abul A'ala Maududi.
This is what I am fighting against.
I am a native of India, an American citizen, and a Christian.
Islam's vision is Universal Jihad and global conquest. It is waged on many fronts around the world, using every tool of warfare ever devised by the mind of man, including psychological warfare, terrorism, armed combat, propaganda, covert operations, infiltration, and demographic saturation. It is here on these shores—right now, today—with a focused and openly declared purpose: to destroy the United States Constitution and impose Sharia law.
No nation owes the guarantees of precious rights and freedoms to those who are avowed enemies of that nation. The doctrine of Universal Jihad is an avowed enemy of our nation and of our Constitution.
