Where’s the Iraqi government?

A remarkably uninformative article in Army Times tells us that the U.S. military is working with the UN to “address the issue of thousands of displaced people who are returning to their homes in Baghdad. ”

Called “internally displaced persons,” or IDPs, the people fled their homes mainly during the worst of the sectarian bloodletting in the capital. As security has improved, many are finding their way back to their old neighborhoods.

Military and U.N. teams are working together to assess and help the people moving back.

What happened to the Iraqi government? We’ve written a number of posts about the government trying to get its people back, trying to deal with the problems of internal and external refugees. How can a reporter write an article about the internally displaced persons without mentioning what the government of Iraq is doing? I guess it’s just a reprint of a press release written by someone who doesn’t know anything. I thought I’d share it anyway.

New film on the stealth jihad

We’ve posted about the stealth jihad, here, here and other places (enter “stealth” in our search function). Now the makers of Obsession have released a new film, “The Third Jihad.”  The website describes it thus:

After the FBI releases a radical Islamist manifesto describing how to weaken America from within, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim American and former physician to the US Congress, decides to investigate. The Third Jihad is about what he discovered.

How is radical Islam operating inside the West? Is a subversive “cultural jihad” underway? How does radical Islam plan to bring America to its knees? What is the endgame?

An email I received alerting me to the film’s release says:

The Third Jihad is a documentary whose goal is to alert, educate and mobilize Americans about the danger radical Islam poses to the United States and to Western civilization as a whole. The film spotlights radical Islam’s war against liberal ideas, its violent, anti-democratic agenda as well as its systematic human and civil rights abuses against women, blacks, homosexuals, Christians and moderate Muslims.

The Third Jihad focuses on radical Islam’s campaign to dominate America and the West, and the ramifications of such a reality on our day to day lives. It underscores the importance of the American people joining together against radical Islam, that if not defeated, will continue to threaten our lives and values until they are destroyed completely.

I don’t know why they call it Third Jihad instead of Stealth Jihad, a much more descriptive term. Maybe Robert Spencer claimed that phrase since it’s the title of his upcoming book. Whatever it’s called, it’s an important film, maybe more important than Obsession because most people are aware of the overt jihad, the one we’re at war with, but few know about the plans to impose Islam on western countries from within. A 30-minute version will be put online at some point.

Many of the posts Ann has been putting up have been reports of the stealth jihad. Apparently Somalis in meat-packing plants are one prong of this attack, and I hope the perpetrators have been taken aback by the strong reaction from American workers. They should know that their stealth jihad works much better in universities where people are accustomed to not seeing what is in front of their faces.
