Jihad Violence By Any Other Name Is Still Jihad Violence, by Linda Goudsmit.
One of the most powerful weapons of war is the deliberate confusion of the meaning of words within a group. In Islam there is a name for this tactic — taqiyya — it means lying in the service of Islam. Radical socialist Saul Alinsky introduced the concept to America in his 1971 book Rules for Radicals when he instructed his students to cut their hair, put on a suit, and blend in so that no one would suspect they were trying to overthrow the government of American capitalism and impose socialism.
There is no equivalent word in the English language for this deliberate deception so I have coined the new word Alinskiyya. Barack Obama, a student of Alinsky, practiced Alinskiyya when he disguised his radical socialist agenda and promised “hope and change” to an unsuspecting American public. Obama practiced Alinskiyya when he deliberately rebranded terrorism as workplace violence and scrubbed all mention of Islamic jihad from national security manuals and training. …
Why would civilized Western societies deliberately rebrand terrorism as mental illness and become apologists for the barbarity of terrorists and sharia law? To make sense of the nonsensical it is necessary to examine the motives of the participants. Left-wing liberal leaders across the world in Germany, Sweden, England, Canada, Australia, and the Democratic party in the US believe in internationalism and one-world government. Their political platforms reject national sovereignty and seek to destroy Western capitalist infrastructure and establish socialism in its place. …
The consortium of left-wing liberal politicians here and abroad require the social chaos and instability created by anarchists and terrorists to dupe the unsuspecting public into surrendering their freedoms in exchange for promised government “safety.” Once the government imposes martial law to quell the chaos it is a very short step to internationalizing the police force and imposing one-world government.
