ISLAMIPEDIA™ INTRO

Will Muslims take over USA and Establish “Sharia Law?”


Only God truly knows the answer to that question. However, the extremely sad truth is – for this writer as a Bible Christian – as follows:

**Many of the things the Muslims DESPISE about the USA, we Bible Christians despise as well!

Consider an “Americanized Version of Isaiah 1:1-4 where God gives an INTRO to Israel, explaining why He was going to destroy them as a nation:

    "O Ye Sinful Americans: a people legalizing sin instead of outlawing sin as I have Commanded!

    You have legalized that which I have forbidden: drunkeness, abortion, gambling, pornography, pornographic movies and Hollywood, 'No-fault-Divorce', adultery and fornication, and even legalized blasphemy;

    At every level of your society, My 'Name', My 'Word', My 'Day' (The Sabbath), My 'Church', My 'Ministers', My 'People' and 'MY SON' - are Blasphemed! My Christians simply turn a 'Deaf Ear' to this profanity';

    All the while turning a blind eye to near-nudity, nearly-legal prostitution, rampant drug usage, and under-aged-sexual activity and abortion (not to mention greed, pride, materialism, secularism, evolutionism and so much more . . .)

    And now - you are even embracing Sodomy and same-sex-marriage - WELL KNOWING My Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah!

      Do you see why I AM provoked to anger with you?

    Sadly, you are raising your children to be completely corrupted. [America] You have forsaken My Ways, the Ways of your Founding Fathers, and therefore, your whole nation is gone away backward."

Isaiah goes on in chapter three to describe in detail the blatant sexuality of Israel’s women: (Isaiah 3.16 begins: “Because the daughters of Zion… with wanton eyes…their secret parts…” and on it goes for 10 more verses.

Thus God explained that because the men of Israel allowed – and even encouraged - their wives and daughters to look like, talk like, act like and dress like, harlots; and allowed their Children to grow up uncorrected and unrestrained, that God would punish them by doing the following:

    >> Allow Children to oppress them (Crime rampant in the streets!)

    >> Allow women to Rule over them, (disdaining and disrespecting the men who have fought every war, manned every police and sheriff’s department, shedding their blood and risking their lives to keep them safe! (See Isaiah 3:12)

    >> That the men would then fall by the sword (See Isaiah 3:26)

If Muslims took over USA, most sin would be stopped immediately!

Sadly, when we Americans are fighting for ‘the American way of life’ – we are fighting for:

    >> The 'Right to Sin',

    >> The 'Right to Practice Abomination',

    >> The 'Right to Blaspheme'!"

    >>> Is this all the American way of life is about!

If the Muslims took over the USA, the sin and the blaspheming would end immediately. There would be no more drunkeness and drug addiction, and same-sex marriage and blatant homosexuality would become “a dead issue” in American politics.

Isn’t it terribly sad, for us American Christians (too weak and wimpy to stop any sin!) to think that our beloved American homeland may need conquered by Muslims . . .JUST to “STOP THE LEGALIZED SINS and ABOMINATIONS?"

It may well be true! It may very well be true!

Islamic Muslim Dictator, Uganda: Comrade with Muammar Gaddafi, Libya;

Was Idi Amin a “Model for Military Coup” in Egypt in 2011?

Idi Amin Dada Jr., was a military leader and President of Uganda from 1971 to 1979. Idi Amin joined the British colonial regiment, the King's African Rifles, in 1946, and eventually held the rank of Major General and Commander of the Ugandan Army prior to taking power in the military coup of January 1971, deposing Milton Obote.

He later promoted himself to Field Marshal while he was the head of state.

Idi Amin's rule was characterised by human rights abuse, political repression, ethnic persecution, extra-judicial killings, nepotism, corruption and gross economic mismanagement. The number of people killed as a result of his regime is estimated by international observers and human rights groups to range from 100,000[1] to 500,000.

Notable backers of Idi Amin included:

    > Muammar al-Gaddafi's Libya, [who is calling for uprising of all Muslims – especially Palestinians – against Israel in February, 2011]

    > The Soviet Union and East Germany,[2][3][4]

    > with early support for his regime coming from the United Kingdom,

    > Israel, [Why Israel would have supported Islamic Amin, is unknown! He soon slaughtered them by the thousands!]

    > The Apartheid-era South Africa.[5]


In 1975–1976, Idi Amin became the Chairman of the Organisation of African Unity, a pan-African group designed to promote solidarity of the African states.[6] During the 1977–1979 period, Uganda was appointed to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.[7]

*** This shows the extreme blindness of the UN!

From 1977 to 1979, Idi Amin titled himself as "His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal, Al Hadji, Doctor, [B] Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, [C] Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General, and Uganda in Particular".[8]

Dissent within Uganda and Idi Amin's attempt to annex the Kagera province of Tanzania in 1978 led to the Uganda–Tanzania War and the demise of his regime. Idi Amin later fled to exile in Libya and Saudi Arabia, where he died on 16 August 2003.

Idi Amin, a career military officer, began recruiting members of Kakwa, Lugbara, Nubian, and other ethnic groups from the West Nile area bordering Sudan. The Nubians had been residents in Uganda since the early 20th century, having come from Sudan to serve the colonial army. Many African ethnic groups in northern Uganda inhabit both Uganda and Sudan, therefore allegations persist that Idi Amin's army consisted mainly of Sudanese soldiers.[21]

Seizure of power

    Eventually, a rift developed between Idi Amin and Obote, worsened by the support Idi Amin had built within the army by recruiting from the West Nile region, his involvement in operations to support the rebellion in southern Sudan, and an attempt on Obote's life in 1969. In October 1970, Obote himself took control of the armed forces, reducing Idi Amin from his months-old post of commander of all the armed forces to that of commander of the army.[22]

    Having learned that Obote was planning to arrest him for misappropriating army funds, Idi Amin seized power in a military coup on 25 January 1971, while Obote was attending a Commonwealth summit meeting in Singapore.

    Troops loyal to Idi Amin sealed off Entebbe International Airport, the main artery into Uganda, and took Kampala. Soldiers surrounded Obote's residence and blocked major roads. A broadcast on Radio Uganda accused Obote's government of corruption and preferential treatment of the Lango region.

Please consider carefully what happened in Uganda, to cheering crowds, what has already happened in Egypt, and what MAY happen if certain safeguards are not implemented.

    ** Cheering crowds were reported in the streets of Kampala after the radio broadcast.[23]

      This also happened in Egypt!


    ** Idi Amin announced that he was a soldier, not a politician, and that the military government would keep the peace, keep the nation stable so the economy thrived!

      This also happened in Egypt!


    ** The military promised they would remain in power only as a caretaker regime until new elections,

      This also happened in Egypt!


    ** That they - the military - would decide and announce when the situation was normalised.

      This also happened in Egypt!


    ** He promised to release all political prisoners.[24]

      This also happened in Egypt!

Presidency, Uganda under Idi Idi Amin Establishment of military rule

    On February 2, 1971, one week after the coup, Idi Amin declared himself President of Uganda, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Army Chief of Staff and Chief of Air Staff.

      > He announced that he was suspending certain provisions of the Ugandan constitution;

        This also happened in Egypt!

      > Idi Amin renamed the presidential lodge in Kampala from Government House to "The Command Post".

      > He disbanded the General Service Unit (GSU), an intelligence agency created by the previous government, and replaced it with the State Research Bureau (SRB).

      > SRB headquarters at the Kampala suburb of Nakasero became the scene of torture and executions over the next few years.[27]

      > Other agencies used to root out political dissent included the military police and the Public Safety Unit (PSU).[27]

Ugandan Refugees

    Obote took refuge in Tanzania, having been offered sanctuary there by Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere. He was soon joined by 20,000 Ugandan refugees fleeing Idi Amin. In 1972, the exiles attempted to regain the country through a poorly organised coup attempt, without success.[28]

    Idi Amin retaliated against the attempted invasion by Ugandan exiles in 1972 by purging the army of Obote supporters, predominantly those from the Acholi and Lango ethnic groups.[29]

    In July 1971, Lango and Acholi soldiers were massacred in the Jinja and Mbarara Barracks,[30] and by early 1972, some 5,000 Acholi and Lango soldiers, and at least twice as many civilians, had disappeared.[31] The victims soon came to include members of other ethnic groups, religious leaders, journalists, artists, senior bureaucrats, judges, lawyers, homosexuals, students and intellectuals, criminal suspects, and foreign nationals.

    In this atmosphere of violence, many other people were killed for criminal motives or simply at will.[32]

    The killings, motivated by ethnic, political and financial factors, continued throughout Idi Amin's eight-year reign.[31] The exact number of people killed is unknown. The International Commission of Jurists estimated the death toll at likely around 300,000.

    An estimate compiled by exile organizations with the help of Amnesty International puts the number killed at 500,000.[8] Among the most prominent people killed were

     Benedicto Kiwanuka, the former prime minister and later chief justice;

     Janani Luwum, the Anglican archbishop;

     Joseph Mubiru, the former governor of the Central Bank;

     Frank Kalimuzo, the vice chancellor of Makerere University;

     Byron Kawadwa, a prominent playwright; and

     two of Idi Amin's own cabinet ministers, Erinayo Wilson Oryema and Charles Oboth Ofumbi.[33]

    In August 1972, Idi Amin declared what he called an "economic war", a set of policies that included the expropriation of properties owned by Asians and Europeans. This is what Hugo Chavez is doing in 2010 and 2011 in Venezuela

    Uganda's 80,000 Asians were mostly from the Indian subcontinent and born in the country, their ancestors having come to Uganda when the country was still a British colony. Many owned businesses, including large-scale enterprises, that formed the backbone of the Ugandan economy.

    On August 4, 1972, Idi Amin issued a decree ordering the expulsion of the 60,000 Asians who were not Ugandan citizens (most of them held British passports). This was later amended to include all 80,000 Asians, except for professionals, such as doctors, lawyers and teachers.

    A plurality of the Asians with British passports, around 30,000, emigrated to Britain. Others went to Australia, Canada, India, Kenya, Pakistan, Sweden, Tanzania and the U.S.[34][35][36] Idi Amin expropriated businesses and properties belonging to the Asians and handed them over to his supporters.

    The businesses were mismanaged, and industries collapsed from lack of maintenance. This proved disastrous for the already declining economy.[26]

    In 1977, Henry Kyemba, Idi Amin's health minister and a former official of the first Obote regime, defected and resettled in Britain. Kyemba wrote and published A State of Blood, the first insider exposé of Idi Amin's rule.

International relations - Foreign relations of Uganda

    Following the expulsion of Ugandan Asians in 1972, most of whom were of Indian descent, India severed diplomatic relations with Uganda. The same year, as part of his "economic war", Idi Amin broke diplomatic ties with Britain and nationalised 85 British-owned businesses – a la Hugo Chavez.

    That year, relations with Israel soured.

    Although Israel had previously supplied Uganda with arms, in 1972 Idi Amin expelled Israeli military advisers and turned to Muammar al-Gaddafi of Libya and the Soviet Union for support.[29] Idi Amin became an outspoken critic of Israel.[37]

    In the documentary film General Idi Amin Dada: A Self Portrait, he discussed his plans for war against Israel, using paratroops, bombers and suicide squadrons.[11]

    Idi Amin later stated that Hitler "was right to burn six million Jews".[38]

    In 1973, U.S. Ambassador Thomas Patrick Melady recommended that the United States reduce its presence in Uganda. Melady described Idi Amin's regime as "racist, erratic and unpredictable, brutal, inept, bellicose, irrational, ridiculous, and militaristic".[39]

    Accordingly, the United States closed its embassy in Kampala.

    In June 1976, Idi Amin allowed an Air France airliner hijacked by two members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - External Operations (PFLP-EO) and two members of the German Revolutionäre Zellen to land at Entebbe Airport. There, the hijackers were joined by three more.

      Soon after, 156 non-Jewish hostages who did not hold Israeli passports were released and flown to safety, while 83 Jews and Israeli citizens, as well as 20 others who refused to abandon them (among whom were the captain and crew of the hijacked Air France jet), continued to be held hostage.

      In the subsequent Israeli rescue operation, codenamed Operation Thunderbolt (popularly known as Operation Entebbe), nearly all the hostages were freed. Three hostages died during the operation and 10 were wounded; seven hijackers, 45 Ugandan soldiers, and one Israeli soldier, Yoni Netanyahu, were killed.

      A fourth hostage, 75-year-old Dora Bloch, who had been taken to Mulago Hospital in Kampala prior to the rescue operation, was subsequently murdered in reprisal. The incident further soured Uganda's international relations, leading Britain to close its High Commission in Uganda.[40]

    Uganda under Idi Amin embarked on a large military build-up, which raised concerns in Kenya. Early in June 1975, Kenyan officials impounded a large convoy of Soviet-made arms en route to Uganda at the port of Mombasa. Tension between Uganda and Kenya reached its climax in February 1976 when Idi Amin announced that he would investigate the possibility that parts of southern Sudan and western and central Kenya, up to within 32 kilometres (20 mi) of Nairobi, were historically a part of colonial Uganda.

    The Kenyan Government responded with a stern statement that Kenya would not part with "a single inch of territory". Idi Amin backed down after the Kenyan army deployed troops and armored personnel carriers along the Kenya-Uganda border.[41]

    Libyan military dictator Muammar al-Gaddafi backed Idi Amin[2] and the Soviet Union became Idi Amin's largest arms supplier.[3]

    East Germany was involved in the General Service Unit and the State Research Bureau, the two agencies which were most notorious for terror. During the Tanzanian invasion in 1979 East Germany attempted to remove evidence of its involvement.[4]

    King of Scotland

    Near the end of 1976, Idi Amin officially declared himself "the uncrowned King of Scotland". (despite the fact that the proper name for the title is King of Scots)[42] Idi Amin lavished his guests and dignitaries with Scottish accordion music, while dressed in Scottish kilts.[43] He wrote to Queen Elizabeth II, "I would like you to arrange for me to visit Scotland, Ireland and Wales to meet the heads of revolutionary movements fighting against your imperialist oppression", and allegedly sent the Queen a telex that stated:

      "Dear Liz, if you want to know a real man, come to Kampala."[44] Idi Amin sometimes argued that he was "the last King of Scotland".[45]

    Erratic behaviour and media portrayalA 1977 caricature of Idi Amin in military and presidential attire by Edmund S. Valtman

    Over time, Idi Amin became more overweight and outspoken. In 1971, Idi Amin and Zaire's president Mobutu Sese Seko changed the names of Lake Albert and Lake Edward to Lake Mobutu Sese Seko and Lake Idi Amin Dada, respectively.[46]

    In 1977, after Britain had broken diplomatic relations with his regime, Idi Amin declared he had beaten the British and conferred on himself the decoration of CBE (Conqueror of the British Empire). His full self-bestowed title ultimately became "His Excellency President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor[B] Idi Idi Amin Dada, VC,[C] DSO, MC, Lord of the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular", in addition to his officially stated claim of being the uncrowned King of Scotland.[47]

    Idi Amin became the subject of rumours and myths, including a widespread belief that he was a cannibal.[48][49] Some of the unsubstantiated rumours, such as the mutilation of one of his wives, were spread and popularised by the 1980 film Rise and Fall of Idi Amin and alluded to in the film The Last King of Scotland in 2006.[50]

    During Idi Amin's time in power, popular media outside of Uganda often portrayed him as an essentially comic and eccentric figure. In a 1977 assessment typical of the time, a Time magazine article described him as a "killer and clown, big-hearted buffoon and strutting martinet".[51]

    For focusing on Idi Amin's excessive tastes and self-aggrandizing eccentricities, the foreign media was often criticised by Ugandan exiles and defectors for downplaying or excusing his murderous behavior.[52] Other commentators even suggested that Idi Amin had deliberately cultivated his eccentric reputation in the foreign media as an easily parodied buffoon in order to defuse international concern over his administration of Uganda.[53]

Deposition and exile, Uganda-Tanzania War

    By 1978, the number of Idi Amin's supporters and close associates had shrunk significantly, and he faced increasing dissent from the populace within Uganda as the economy and infastructure collapsed from years of neglect and abuse. After the killings of Bishop Luwum and ministers Oryema and Oboth Ofumbi in 1977, several of Idi Amin's ministers defected or fled into exile.[54]

    Later that year in November, after Idi Amin's vice president, General Mustafa Adrisi, was injured in a car accident, troops loyal to him mutinied. Idi Amin sent troops against the mutineers, some of whom had fled across the Tanzanian border.[26] Idi Amin accused Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere of waging war against Uganda, ordered the invasion of Tanzanian territory, and formally annexed a section of the Kagera Region across the boundary.[26][28]

    In January 1979, Nyerere mobilised the Tanzania People's Defence Force and counterattacked, joined by several groups of Ugandan exiles who had united as the Uganda National Liberation Army (UNLA). Idi Amin's army retreated steadily, and despite military help from Libya's Muammar al-Gaddafi, he was forced to flee into exile by helicopter on 11 April 1979 when Kampala was captured.

    He escaped first to Libya where he stayed until 1980, and ultimately settled in Saudi Arabia where the Saudi royal family allowed him sanctuary and paid him a generous subsidy in return for his staying out of politics.[10]

    Idi Amin lived for a number of years on the top two floors of the Novotel Hotel on Palestine Road in Jeddah. Having covered the Ugandan-Tanzania war for the BBC as chief Africa correspondent, in 1980 Brian Barron, in partnership with cameraman Mohammed Idi Amin of Visnews in Nairobi, located Idi Amin and secured the first interview with him since his deposition.[55]

    Idi Amin held that Uganda needed him and never expressed remorse for the nature of his regime.[56] In 1989, he attempted to return to Uganda, apparently to lead an armed group organised by Colonel Juma Oris. He reached Kinshasa, Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo), before Zairian President Mobutu forced him to return to Saudi Arabia.
