John O Brennan: “Jihad is a legitimate tenet of Islam”…

President Obama has nominated John O Brennan to be CIA Director.   This John O Brennan:

EnoughI’m not trying to be an alarmist, but, well…

……  GET FRIGGIN ALARMED PEOPLE !!

….this is the same John O Brennan who wrote in 2008 an article, entitled “The Conundrum of Iran: Strengthening Moderates without Acquiescing to Belligerence,” appeared in the July issue of “The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.”

Among other recommendations, it argued that the next U.S. administration should grant political legitimacy to the terrorist organizations Hezbollah and Hamas, and should exercise “strategic patience” with Iran rather than engaging in “bellicose” rhetoric and coercive diplomacy.  (link)

Remember that complete failure of an outstretched hand toward Iran?   Remember the complete failure of the Obama administration to support the Green Party uprising in Iran?  Remember all of that insufferable stupidity.?

From John O Brennan’s Abstract:

After nearly three decades of antagonistic rhetoric and diplomatic estrangement between the United States and Iran, the next president has the opportunity to set a new course for relations between the two countries.

When the next president takes up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Iranian officials will be listening. The president must implement a policy of engagement that encourages moderates in Iran without implying tolerance for Tehran’s historic support of terrorist activities.

This strategy will require patience and sensitivity to the complex political realities inside Iran. To successfully chart a new course for U.S.-Iranian relations, the next president must (1) tone down rhetoric; (2) establish a direct dialogue with Tehran, including comprehensive, private discussions and deployment of a special envoy; (3) encourage greater assimilation of Hezbollah into Lebanon’s political system; and (4) offer carrots in addition to sticks, including consideration of legitimate Iranian concerns on regional security issues.

  1. John Galt says:

    “Jihad is a legitimate tenant of Islam.”

    I agree, and from that tenant logically follows Islam = terrorism.

    Terrorism: the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce.

  2. It could be worse. Brennan could be Secretary of Sharia State. :evil:

    The thing is, jihad actually *is* a tenet of Islam and there is not actually one overall encompassing jihad. Jihad as a concept means “struggle” and refers to sin, it’s a struggle against sin, a struggle against the loss of faith. As far as I can tell, it’s true that there are sections of the Koran that talk about jihad in terms of military conquest (Mohammed himself participated in quite a few). But there are many other connotations that are religiously significant:

    – jihad of the mind: self-improvement
    – jihad of the hands: good works
    – jihad of the heart: charitable donations

    Of course, there are people out there who will use whatever platform, especially religion, to justify certain actions (war, terrorism, political parties, politicians, etc.). Religion is a powerful system that contributes to one’s worldview. Terrorists and so forth recognize how influential a faith is to its adherents and are smart enough (and evil enough) to see that it can be used as a justification.

    Jihad is a legitimate and important part of Islam–fundamentalists recognize this and use it to their own wicked ends.

      Are you really saying that jihad as in “I’m going to kill you because I’m a faithful muslim and you’re not” is only a distortion of what the Koran teaches? Those who have escaped from Islam would disagree with you.

      Some former Muslims are desperately trying to persuade the west to wake up and understand that killing non-muslims, just because they are non-muslims, is a primary requirement for the muslims who are products of the madrasses. There are many such courageous men, and many of them have websites, even though their personal whereabouts have to be concealed.

      These men are on the kill lists of Islam. Their speaking schedules at churches in this country cannot be published for the sake of their own safety as well as the safety of those churches.

        Sharon, ‘Are you really saying that jihad as in “I’m going to kill you because I’m a faithful muslim and you’re not” is only a distortion of what the Koran teaches?’

        ThatOldGuy, ‘As far as I can tell, it’s true that there are sections of the Koran that talk about jihad in terms of military conquest (Mohammed himself participated in quite a few).’

        : /

        No, if you read what I wrote above (and reproduced right here), you would see that I never said anything of the sort.

        You would also see that I fully understand that there are parts of the Koran that preach war and aggression through military conquest (that Mohammed himself participated in much of these conquests). In fact, that difficulty was the *first* thing I addressed in my post after regarding jihad as a valid Islamic concept. I then said that there are Muslims who follow ‘jihad’ in a purely non-violent form… as in, they define it differently… like the examples I provided above; that there are Muslims who are ashamed of what’s being done in the name of their religion, who are being looked at ‘differently’ for their faith because of radicals that kill people in the name of “faith.”

        As far as having ‘escaped from Islam,’ I don’t know what this means. I’m sure that there are people who are being oppressed under religious fundamentalists in tyrannical regimes (Islamism). I’m certain that there are people who have escaped such places and spread the word of what practices occurred under these regimes under ‘the banner of Islam.’ That there are: bands of people who kidnap children to fight with rifles and IEDs, and to hate ‘the West;’ who take over governments and teach children the same radical ideologies; who cultivate people to blow themselves up in the name of Allah, are no surprises to me.

        To be clear:

        I am not contesting your point ‘that killing non-muslims, just because they are non-muslims, *is* a primary requirement for the muslims who are products of the madrasses.’ That is true to my understanding. All I would do is emphasize the last part of that contention: ‘who are products of the madrasses.’

        A lot of people practice Islam without committing atrocities and without feeling like a “bad Muslim” for not having yet killed an infidel. As I said above, the radicals are highly organized, and are motivated and intelligent (and evil) enough to know that religion is a powerful platform to justify their actions to others: there are people out there who believe that the only way to be a good Muslim is to kill people and to hate the West, capitalism, the US, and whatever else.

        And then there are people that believe that the six pillars of Islam are all that’s needed… and I think it’s safe to say that this group of people comprise the overwhelming majority of people who call themselves Muslim.

    This is also the same guy who ‘sanitised’ obama’s passport files during his first run in 2007.

    Brennan admits today at senate hearing on his CIA Director nomination that he didn’t recommend going after Bin Laden back in the ’90s under Clinton.
    The US had the chance to catch OBL years before September 11 and did nothing. That tells you in a nutshell what this man is about.
