The Muslim terrorist demons in Iraq are finally forcing open the eyelids of American naiveté to see the naked truth about what the west considered the most peaceful sect of Islam; the Sufi Naqshbandi order openly joined the ranks of the most notorious Muslim terrorist organization in the world; the ISIS (The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), becoming one of the largest five armed factions that joined the opposition to the Iraqi government.
The development has thrown the political analysts and the media on a spin, since the Sufi branch of Islam comprising a fifth of the Muslim world, for decades, has enjoyed spectacularly good press in the West and are hailed as peaceful mystics who believe that “jihad is a spiritual quest” and that they supposedly believe in nothing violent or unpleasant. The Sufi movement has even attracted favorable attention and converts from all sorts of Westerners, from new agers in Marin County, California, to East Coast intellectuals.
But perhaps adding some additional shock therapy is needed, so grab your seats for some Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom style shocking footage and see what the Sufis are all about. Go ahead, imagine yourself as Indiana Jones who just discovered a Thuggee style worship service in progress witnessing for the first time the shamanistic and demonic nature of what comprises one-fifth of the Muslim world and how they are transformed into zombies:
And no, this is no movie, its all real. It is no wonder why the Bible calls this religion, the “mother of harlots”, for there is no other faith in the world that combines all the cults, including pagan, unorthodox heretical deviant Christian and Jewish cults, all into one religion; Islam.
One example of the utter ignorance in the media regarding Sufis is when Feisal Abdul Rauf, the man behind the Ground Zero Mosque was doing his activism, The New York Times said that he was:
“one of America’s leading thinkers of Sufism, the mystical form of Islam, which in terms of goals and outlook couldn’t be farther from the violent Wahhabism of the jihadists. His videos and sermons preach love, the remembrance of God and reconciliation. His slightly New Agey rhetoric makes him sound, for better or worse, like a Muslim Deepak Chopra.”
Indeed, if Rauf and Deepak Chopra have anything in common, it would be that the Hindu Thuggees were not much different from the Sufis:
Even as we see the unfolding events, still, educated intellectuals (who deny that the devil exists) and the naive so-called ‘experts’ are still analyzing that the Naqshbandi order in the ISIS are the peace loving type. When I searched this group, the first article I found was by Counter Currents, which stated some idiotic things like:
“At the same time, Baath leader Izzat Duri developed ties of patronage with the Naqshbandi Sufi order in Mosul. Sufism or Muslim mysticism is the opposite of fundamentalism, valuing rituals and saints and mystical experiences of God.”
Isn’t anyone asking all this news media that; if Sufism in Mosul were so peaceful, why would they join the world’s most notorious and violent terrorist group in the world, the ISIS?
The stupidity does not only encompass liberals. Speaking at an event in Detroit, I was speaking with James Woolsey, the former director of the C.I.A (Central Intelligence Agency) who said that “moderate Islam exists”. Asking him to point to his favorite peace-loving Muslim scholar and sect, he answered expressing his admiration for Sufis, especially the mystic Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Qabbani, who at the time, according to Woosley openly speaks out against terrorism.
I asked Woolsey if he has ever read Qabbani’s book “Paving The Way For The Coming Mahdi”? Woosley’s darling talked about how the Mahdi’s armies soon will come from the region of Iran:
“Hadith indicate that black flags coming from the area of Khorasan [Iran] will signify [that] the appearance of the Mahdi is nigh. Khorasan is in today’s Iran, and some scholars have said that this Hadith means when the black flags appear from Central Asia, i.e., in the direction of Khorasan (Iran), then the appearance of the Mahdi is imminent.”
Indeed, so many Muslims are elated at the progress of the ISIS since they see that the Caliphate is in sight in Iraq. And if the head of the former CIA director was so mediocre not to comprehend the threat of Mahdism and the Caliphate, what makes the rest of our intelligence and media anymore brighter? Today even Shiite Sufis are seeing the closeness of Mahdi’s coming, especially when they see Iran’s Shiite Revolutionary Guards are parked in Baghdad.
I even encountered a so-called Prophecy expert, David Reagan who wrote criticizing me that The Sunnis strongly reject this concept [Mahdism].
Far from Wahhabism, Sufism is the most dangerous, not only that because it teaches tremendous violence since it was the Sufis who are the muscle and sinew of the faith advancing it to become the world’s second-largest religion. Sufis are not simply a sect of Islam, but rather heirs of an ancient mystical tradition within both the Sunni and Shia branches of the faith combining their inward quest with war and expansion worldwide.
Sufism is also the ecumenical force in which it is the best uniting factor between Shiite and Sunni Muslims. Sunni Sufis adore Shiite icons and like Shiites are mystical and charismatic and even provides a link between Islam and shamanism. In contemporary Muslim culture Sufism introduced the old practice of shamanism as it was combined with elements of Sufism in order to adapt to wider Islamic society. Shamanistic Sufi Islam thus expands deeply into Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and the Balkans and shows how the Muslim shaman, like his Siberian counterpart, cultivates personal relations with spirits to supposedly help individuals through what they believe as healing and divination. This ‘Islamized shamanism’, covering the geographic areas of modern-day Turkey, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kirghizstan, northern Afghanistan, the Turkoman province of Iran and the Uygur district of Xinjian province of China will play a major role in the end times and we predict that the Antichrist is likely to be Sufi.
Turkey is especially plagued with Sufi Islam and Edorgan was raised as a Sufi Muslim and Shamanism pervaded Turkish Sufism which naive tourists are fascinated with when they watch Dervishes who spin and rotate as they get into a trance. Shia Islam in Iran follows metaphysical Sufism, and pre-Islamic shamanism. The figure of the shaman has always been a prominent motif within the Islamic world, particularly in relation to the mystical domain of Sufism.
Even many Salafist and Wahhabi Muslims consider Sufis to get too much into shamanism and demon worship. To these we still ask; how can Muslims blame them if the Quran refers to the jinn as evil spirits when in other parts of the Quran, the jinn, are Muslims:
“So, since we [Jinn] have listened to the guidance (of this Qur’an), we have accepted (Islam): and any who believes in his Lord has no fear of loss, force, or oppression.” — Qur’an 72.13
Yet Sufism has all the elements of Jihad violence. Al—Ghazali whom the “eminent” Islamic scholar W.M. Watt said of him that he was: “acclaimed in both the East and West as the greatest Muslim after Muhammad” (wow), talked about catapulting and enslaving Christians and Jews including that Jews and Christians should be enslaved and that if you enslave a Jew or a Christian that “his marriage is automatically revoked” so a Muslim can take another man’s wife to his bed. And that a Muslim “must destroy their useless books” that Jihadists may “take as booty whatever they decide…they may steal as much food as they need…”
It was the spirit of Al Ghazali’s teachings on jihad warfare that in fact inspired the Turkish Ottomans into carrying out jihad campaigns that ravaged neighboring Asia Minor from the 11th to the 15th century.
Sufis ruled in the early Mughal periods in India were the greatest massacres in human history ever, took place that dwarfed the Holocaust, and in recent times, the Northern Caucasus like Sufi Naqshbandi leader, Shamil Basayev showed Sufism’s true colors when he orchestrated the brutal Beslan massacre.
Sufism will be the venue in which the West will be fooled by, the ancient occult of the Turk will revive, the unifying factor which will bring Iran and Turkey together and the primary method in which Lucifer will be worshipped.
From my own life experience, my father was a Muslim who dabbled in mystic Sufism. He would meditate for days until he eventually developed a split personality. He would do things the normal human being would see bizarre; speaking to jinn (demons), running in the nude in the wee hours of the night during the cold winter roaming tombstones from the local graveyard to only sneak in before the sun came up and hibernate for days. He cursed the Holy Cross as loud as he could from the rooftop and harassed every priest he would run into. This different personality was no longer my father and he was completely someone else I never knew. When he came to the U.S. and later in life ended in the elderly care in California, I’d warn the nurses who reprimanded me for believing in “fairytales” since according to these liberal twits, he was “a nice old man who was diagnosed with a mild bipolar manic depressive illness”, until I was called by them when the police had to storm in after he held a nurse with an entire ward of patients hostage for her refusal to abandon Christianity for Islam. He continually spoke to the Jinn whom he kept there names secret. It was way later that I learned about exorcism that even Jesus would have the demons reveal their names in order to be cast out.
Then we had Sophia, an Iranian girl whom we knew who dabbled with the Shiite version of Mystic Sufism until one day she knocked on our door seeking help to only find a zombie who urinated on herself. I had some friends at our local Baptist church attend her and her family to only see the whole family scream like zombies at the first uttering of words from the Holy Bible. My Baptist brothers and sisters were unaware of what they were dealing with.
I have seen things I would rarely describe having lived in Islam and dabbled with things I should have never done to only see an orb so bright that its fluorescent shine was impossible to gaze at lit the room. And yes, I had a friend who witnessed the whole ordeal. People would simply not believe it, but it’s true. Having read Scripture, I finally understood that Jesus healed the man who roamed in the nude and that Satan appears as an angel of light … all these stories are true to me since I have seen them first hand. Today I kiss the Holy Cross and thank the Almighty for His Son, the healer of all who simply ask.
