If you are surprised, you shouldn't be.
(IsraelNN.com) Mujahideen Muslim terrorists may be behind the sinking American dollar as part of a campaign to cripple the American economy, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported. The media watch group, which specializes in tracking Arabic language websites, said that postings on websites the past two years reflect a move toward waging an economic war against the United States.
Mujahideen terrorist groups that operate in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries "have come to the conclusion that it is financial, rather than military, losses that will prompt the U.S. to change its policies in the Middle East and elsewhere," according to MEMRI.
An article recently posted in Sada Al-Jihad (Echo of Jihad) magazine and posted on several Muslim websites, discusses the September 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S. as having influenced the decline in the dollar. It also cited the cost of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan as draining the American economy.
Another recent posting stated, "The dollar can expect two additional blows that will break its back... [namely] the announcement of the return of the [religious rule of the] Caliphate..." and the reinstatement of the gold standard in international monetary trade. It urged Mujahideen "to get rid of American dollars" before an "imminent" terrorist attack that "will put an end to the so-called United States of America and destroy its economy completely."
MEMRI concluded, "Given that it is highly atypical for Al-Qaeda to give prior warning of its attacks, the message is probably an attempt to pressure Muslims to sell dollars, in order to generate pessimism in the dollar market and thus accelerate the drop in its value."
Did you read that 1991 Muslim Brotherhood Memorandum "for the General Strategic goal... in North America" that I recommended to you yesterday? It's apparently just a follow-up document; the goal itself was set in 1987: "Enablement of Islam in North America
... meaning: establishing an effective and stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which... presents Islam as a civilization alternative and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is."
Will the pampered, narcisisstic and uniformed among us happily accept Islam when it's presented as a stabilizing force to bring "peace and prosperity" back to our (Gd forbid) broken and chaotic society? It worked for the Taliban in Afghanistan, if you'll remember:
"After the Taliban threw out President Burhanuddin Rabbani and took control of the capital, they brought relative peace, returned electricity to the shattered city and began their campaign to impose their harsh version of Islamic law." (Associated Press, July 12, 1997)
This is not going to be pretty, boys and girls. And if you think that Islamofascists can't take down our economy in the process of taking over our entire continent, then you be a fool. Remember, these are people who have no qualms about beheading other people; in fact they relish it.
I'm thinking there should be some sort of resistance.... before it's too late. But where to begin? If you're in the Colorado House District 6 in Denver, the answer's easy. For the rest of us, I have no idea.
