According to the Assyrian website, a 14 year old Christian Assyrian boy, Ayad Tariq, from Baqouba, Iraq was decapitated at his work place on October 21.

Ayad Tariq was working his 12 hour shift, maintaining an electric generator, when a group of disguised Muslim insurgents walked in at the beginning of his shift shortly after 6 a.m. and asked him for his ID.

“According to another employee who witnessed the events, and who hid when he saw the insurgents approach, the insurgents questioned Ayad after seeing that his ID stated “Christian”, asking if he was truly a “Christian sinner.”

“Ayad replied “yes, I am Christian but I am not a sinner.” The insurgents quickly said this is a “dirty Christian sinner!” Then they proceeded to each hold one limb, shouting “Allahu akbar! Allahu akbar!” while beheading the boy.”

Three rioting Muslim teenagers in Marseilles, France, set fire to a city bus, burning one woman and sending three other passengers to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.

In a recent survey among the Middle East’s most ‘moderate’ Islamic state, some thirty percent of Turks say in a recent survey that they support honor killings of Muslim women. And 77% of young women at at the Middle East University in Ankara feel that a husband has the right to beat his wife for reasons such as her burning dinner.

In the past week (October 15-October 21), 78 jihad attacks world-wide killed 390 people and critically injured 462.

And in the UK, a research council project to investigate jihadi terror groups canceled their investigation. The reason? Fear of terror.

“Research councils today confirmed they have put on hold their involvement in a government-backed project that aimed to identify the growth of Islamist groups around the world.

The decision by the Economics and Social Research Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council followed accusations by academics that they would be putting the lives of British researchers at risk in Muslim countries.”,,1926567,00.html


Islam divides the world according to its status relative to Islam. Dar al Islam (the Zone of Islam) and Dar al Harb (the Zone of War) are just two of the ‘zones’. There are more.

The Dar al Hudna (Zone of Calm) refers to “the land of non-believers currently under truce which is in respite between wars.”

Truce is bought by tribute by harbis. If the harbis refuse to pay tribute in exchange for the truce, hostilities are resumed.

Furthermore, only treaties that conform to Islamic prescriptions are valid; if these conditions are not fulfilled the treaty is worthless. Israel’s status during the Oslo Peace Process was that of Dar al Hudna, or zone of temporary calm.

The Oslo Agreement called for Palestinian recognition of Israel’s right to exist. That provision made it worthless on its face in the eyes of Islam. It was a ‘hudna’ agreement made to give the forces of Islam time to prepare for war. ‘Hudna’ is the calm before the storm.

Dar al-`Ahd means the ‘Zone of Truce’. The ‘Zone of Truce’ is different than the Dar al Hudna in one important respect. In Dar al Hudna, the truce is temporary and only until Islam can gain the advantage.

America’s status USED to be that of Dar al Dawa, before it moved to the Dar al Harb. Dar al Dawa is a term used to describe a region where the religion of Islam had recently been introduced. It is a ‘grace’ period during which Islam is given a chance to take root and build a following.

There is the Dar al Amn, or Zone of Safety. This is a term that describes the status of Muslims living in the West. While America is now part of Dar al Harb, it is also equally within the Dar al Amn — a ‘Zone of Safety’ for American Muslims from the Dar al Dawa.

And therein lies Islam’s strategic advantage. An American ‘Dar al Amn’ from within whose shores Islamist jihadis can safely plot ways to bring Dar al Harb to America’s homeland.

Last week, the US Army Military Academy at West Point opened an Islamic worship hall on campus, complete with a pulpit facing Mecca. West Point has roughly 5,000 cadets undergoing training at any given time.

Of those 5,000 officers in training, 32 are Muslims, or 0.15%. Now they have a Dar al Amn at West Point.

We aren’t at war with Buddhism, or even with an offshoot of some Buddhist separatist group. And there are more Buddhists in America than there are Islamics. So, is there a Buddhist Temple at West Point?

This isn’t, as the politically correct might argue, anti-Islamic hysteria. Read the first part of today’s briefing again. Ask yourself what inspires Islamic religionists to become Islamic jihadists. (I’ll give you a hint. ‘Islam’ is part of both phrases)

Creating a Zone of Safety for Islamics within the Islamic-declared Zone of War is awfully nice of us. It seems like a decent thing to do, and demonstrates to all the world just what an open and free society we really are.

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Proverbs 14:12, 16:25)
