Standing the Test of Time – AFDI 18-point platform – Items 1 to 6

Back in April 2013, the American Freedom Defense Initiative produced an 18-point platform designed to provide an effective means of countering the global jihad. It was designed primarily from an American perspective, but could easily be adapted for any Western country under the threat of Islam. It’s worth re-visiting the platform (after four years and eight months) to see whether those means still have merit. We leave it to the reader to decide whether conditions might have improved if Western governments had heeded the advice which, for the most part, has not been the case.

This article focuses on Items 1-6. Articles concerning Items 7-12 and 13-18 will follow shortly.

1)— AFDI denounces the crippling rules of engagement under which our soldiers are forced to labour. They should be given the freedom to defend themselves and protect their comrades.

The big problem here is that Western governments still refuse to recognise that we are at war with the most ruthless, genocidal and totalitarian ideology that the world has ever seen. This is not the fault of the West – war has been declared on us via the established doctrine of eternal warfare and enmity that runs through the Koran and the Sunna like a stick of Blackpool rock. When you are at war, to paraphrase General George S Patton – You don’t want to make your soldiers die for your country, you want to make the soldiers of the other side die for theirs. This is a war that will only end by comprehensively destroying all traces of this ideology, and all those who continue to support it in spite of its obvious shortcomings, until the existential threat to our Judaeo-Christian civilisation has been neutralised.

2) — AFDI calls for profiling of Muslims at airports and in hiring in professions in which national security and public safety could be
compromised.

There has been ever-increasing opposition to such profiling on the basis that it is “divisive”, “discriminatory” and could affect “community cohesion.” How long are we going to maintain “community cohesion” with a demographic that is bitterly hostile to the rest of humanity and which is doubling in size every 12-15 years? Paul Weston of Liberty GB had the right idea when he suggested in 2015 that anyone who continues to voluntarily subscribe to the totalitarian ideology of Islam (now that there is NO excuse for ignoring the threat that Islam poses to our societies) should be purged from ANY public position of authority, including the police, the military, the judiciary, the educational system, and national and local government.


3)— AFDI calls for immediate investigation into foreign mosque funding in the West and for new legislation making foreign funding of mosques in
non-Muslim nations illegal.

Although this is now being talked about, there has been virtually no serious investigation into foreign mosque funding by anyone with the power to do so in Western governments. Nobody in authority wants to be seen as “racist” or “Islamophobic”, despite the fact that Islam is not a race, and it’s hardly a phobia when you are concerned for yourself or for your children being shot, stabbed, run down, blown up or otherwise harmed by an increasing number of the followers of this ideology. A comprehensive program of investigation and legislation as specified above is well overdue.

4)— AFDI calls for surveillance of mosques and regular inspections of mosques in the U.S. and other non-Muslim nations to look for pro-violence materials. Any mosque advocating jihad or any aspects of Sharia that conflict with Constitutional freedoms and protections should be closed.

Surveys over the past four and a half years have suggested that more than 80 per cent of mosques in the West promote outright hatred towards the Kuffar (infidel) through the doctrines of jihad, dhimmitude and Al-Walaa-Wal-Baraa. The problem is that this is not an extremist minority as we have been told by successive Western governments, this is mainstream Islam, red in tooth and claw, and as such it has no place in any civilised society. A determined and committed program of surveillance and inspection is, once again, well overdue.


5)— AFDI calls for curriculum and Islam-related materials in textbooks and museums to describe the Islamic doctrine and history accurately, including its violent doctrines and 1,400-year war against unbelievers.

There has been far too much whitewashing of the ideology of Islam in our schools, libraries and museums, and it is time that the truth was told about the genocidal, totalitarian and supremacist nature of Islam, and the reality of the consequences of allowing Islam to take hold in a civilised society, as seen by the history of jihad over the past 1400 years. As in many other aspects of this article, influential Islamic interests, together with their allies on the Left, are fighting to prevent any real discussion of the true nature of this existential threat to our democratic societies and Western civilisation.


6)— AFDI calls for a halt of foreign aid to Islamic nations with Sharia-based constitutions and/or governments.

At least President Donald Trump is making the right noises (as of December 2017) about the enormous amounts of aid that has been squandered on those Sharia-compliant countries that are quite obviously no friends of the West. Nations with Sharia-based constitutions will eventually become failed states once the parasitical nature of such constitutions has destroyed or driven out all decency and humanity – so why not allow them to fail sooner so that people in those countries recognise that Islam as a civilisation model is a complete disaster?
