and the Final Jihad:
The Muslim Brotherhood to the Leftist/Marxist - Islamist Alliance
A Book Review
For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill.
To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill. - Sun Tzu

- Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld & Alyssa A. Lappen in Human Events
That threat no longer remains veiled. David J. Jonsson,
author of “The Clash of Ideologies – The Making of the Christian and Islamic
Worlds” has thoroughly and meticulously exposed the threat in his newest
work, “ISLAMIC ECONOMICS AND THE FINAL JIHAD - The Muslim Brotherhood to the
Leftist/Marxist - Islamist Alliance.”
Mr. Jonsson once again draws on over three decades of experience dealing with
the Islamic world, working for major corporations in the United States and Japan
and with multilateral agencies that brought him to more that fifteen countries
with significant or majority populations who are Muslim. These exposures
provided insight into the basic tenants of Islam as a political, economic and
religious system, and became proficient in Islamic law (Shariah) through
contract negotiation and personal encounter. In this book, he clarifies the
totalitarian religious/political/economic ideology of Islam, and the growing
Marxist/Leftist and Islamist threat against the West.
As a reviewer of this
great book, I will assume that the reader has come to the understanding, like
many other Americans, that Islam is not a religion as the Western mind
understands religion, but also an economic and totalitarian political system
with a religious aspect, much like Communism. Mr. Jonsson states, “As a
complete “way of life,” Islam covers the entire spectrum of human activities.
Islam means total commitment and subordination of all aspects of life to Allah.
Hence, Islam is both religion and politics, church and state, joined in a single
goal of serving Allah and implementing his commandments.”
“Islam’s ultimate goal is the creation of ‘one world
without borders under Islamic rule,’ a totalitarian economic political theocracy
based on Islamic law—Shariah law…. Shariah law is the key to understanding
Islamic ideology, government, economics, and social institutions. It is the
basis for Islamic fundamentalism’s disagreement with Western thought, and it
encapsulates the ideology of Islam that is found in the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
Shariah brings Islamic theology down to a person’s everyday life. The objective
of Islamic ideology is to have everyone in the world governed by Shariah law.
Muslims believe this law expresses the universal will of Allah for humankind.
They think they have a holy obligation to impose it upon all the nations of the
Mr. Jonsson’s efforts in his latest work are extensive. Along with detailing
the fact that Islam is not so much a religion, but a total way of life, he also
exposes the burgeoning alliance between global Marxism/Leftism and expansionist
“We hope that this book will encourage the reader to
learn more about the history and strategy of the Islamists and the
Leftist/Marxist - Islamist Alliance leading to the events occurring today. The
decisions you make in your daily life will impact the future of your life, that
of your children’s, and ultimately, that of Western
“…The goal remains the same—world domination. The added
impact is the joining of Leftist/Marxist agenda to promote their ideologies with
the Islamic movement. The global Leftist/Marxist - Islamist Alliance, which has
now become the dominant political and social force around the world, had its
recent resurgence in the mid-1980s. The alliance has grown exponentially,
dwarfing all other political and social movements around the globe. Hardly a
week goes by that a new demonstration or march is not planned in some major city
across the globe.”
Mr. Jonsson then painstakingly details the extensive political and economic
activities over the decades of that still developing alliance, from South
America, to Russia and China, to the Middle East. Economic organizations like
the Organization of Oil Producing Countries – OPEC, the Organization of Islamic
Conference - OIC and its banking arm, the Islamic Development Bank – IDB, the
Shanghai Cooperation Organization – SCO, to Mercosur - Southern Common Market,
and Petrosur, are all explored.
Mr. Jonsson writes, “…’The organization [SCO] now
represents half of all humankind.’ This was not merely a factual statement;
rather, it was meant as a direct challenge to U.S. superiority. The military
threat from the SCO becomes increasingly legitimate when we consider that even
after China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) completes its current downsizing of
200,000 men, it will still have a standing army of approximately 2.3 million men
with another 10 million men available from its organized
The United States cannot allow a China-Russia-Iran
triad to monopolize Central Asia and the Middle East. If the SCO does mature as
a competing body to the European Union and NATO, it could signify a dramatic
shift in the current geo-strategic balance of power that currently favors
My readership will recall my mentioning the work, “Mapping the Global Future:
Report of the National Intelligence Council’s 2020 Project,” National
Intelligence Council - reporting to the Director of Central Intelligence
(DCI). In this governmental forecast of what the U.S. might possibly face
geopolitically in the next fifteen years, globalization takes center stage, and
how it might “go off the rails.” I suggest you read it.
What impacted me most was not so much what it said, but what it didn’t say. No
where was America’s sovereignty or national uniqueness emphasized, rather, a
“globalization at any price” implied throughout the publication. This blind
charge forward by the U.S and the West is even now showing its end result, not
only internationally, but nationally, as political and cultural elements hostile
to American ideas are exploiting our ethically rudderless drive for the “bottom
line” against us to try to undermine American interests and foreign policy.
Mr. Jonsson’s recent expose of the radical Left in
America’s alliance with Jihadi terrorist elements, in “Wakeup America –
Understanding The Mindset Of The Jihadi”[7a]
posted on my site extensively details that dark partnership, in the
context of the 27 January, 2007 anti-war protests which took place in Washington
DC. The Democrat party, because of their blind hatred for the Bush
Administration as well as a “progressive” agenda which is nothing more than a
morally ambiguous new age religion which demands mindless worship at the alter
of multi-culturalism. This inability to make any values judgments at all –
except against conservatives – has opened the door for them to become horribly
First, US Representative William Delahunt, who declined to take a stand on the
‘Pendleton 8.” Turns out his daughter Kara Delahunt is a registered lobbyist
for the Saudi Economic and Development Co., an investment firm that bills itself
as ''a leader in Islamic investments," and says it only puts money in projects
that adhere to Islamic law.
Then there is US Representative. John Conyers, new chairman of the House
Judiciary Committee, who wants to reverse anti-terrorism legislation because,
“The policies of the Bush administration have sent a wave of fear through our
immigrant communities and targeted our Arab and Muslim neighbors.” Conyers’
district includes Dearborn, Michigan, nicknamed "Dearbornistan" and represents
the largest Arab population in the country.
Then there is recently elected, Minnesota Representative Keith Ellison, the
first Muslim in Congress, whose supporters shout "Allahu Akbar!" at his
acceptance speech, recorded at YouTube.com. He also insisted on defying
centuries of U.S. tradition by taking his oath of office with his hand on a copy
of the Koran. While voicing soothing words of “tolerance” in the face of his
detractors, “Keith is paying respect not only to the founding fathers' belief in
religious freedom but the Constitution itself," said Ellison spokesman Rick
Jauert, it came to light the Koran was owned by Jefferson, not for the purported
insight and wisdom, but to understand his enemies.
All are Democrats and represent the “left” in the American political arena. All
are affiliated with CAIR, a recognized radical Islamist group. It is
noteworthy Omar Ahmed, Chairman of the Board of CAIR (Council of American
Islamic Relations), quoted from the San Ramon Valley Herald, July 1998, "Islam
isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The
Qur'an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted
religion on earth."
From author Cal Thomas, to terrorism expert and author Robert Spencer people are talking increasingly about the rise of Islamic financing. Because,
as the “golden rule” states, he who has the gold, makes the rules.
Finally, Jonsson gives solutions for resolving the vulnerability.
“To change the game, a paradigm shift must occur:
· The United States, in particular, and the West must devise a strategic plan for energy self-sufficiency. This will entail a massive and expensive crash program for converting coal and natural gas to liquids, extracting liquids from shale, along with conservation measures.These actions will require a major shift in the attitudes of the population. This shift will be painful, but the option is to continue living in one of the three categories mentioned earlier: non-Muslims in the lands of war; non-Muslims in lands of temporary truce, or as dhimmis.”
· The banking system must refrain from chasing the profit for the Islamic market, neglecting the security implications.
· The West must reduce its dependence on immigration to provide a safety net for retirement payments, market and low cost labor.
Mr. Jonsson’s work in “ISLAMIC ECONOMICS AND THE FINAL
JIHAD - The Muslim Brotherhood to the Leftist/Marxist - Islamist Alliance, likewise, goes well
beyond national and international economics, delving into the extensive history
of the Muslim world; into the very thinking of contemporary Islamists.
The financial aspects of the war are a subject that is
rarely discussed in cultural and political forums, yet, Mr. Jonsson defines this
“white collar jihad” “…Most of us are familiar with the term, “white collar
crime.” We have seen the results of it in the rise and fall of major name
corporations from Enron, Worldcom, and others. Few consider that while we are
waging an all-out war against terrorism, Islamists seek to spread their
ideologies through the control of the media, educational institutions including
the textbooks, financial institutions and the control of natural resources. I
refer to the leaders and workers performing these activities as performing
“white collar jihad.” These workers are the “stealth” army of Islamic jihad.
They are the “stealth sword of Islam.”
As the West continues to be hobbled by political correctness in winning this war
against conservative, Wahhabi-type Islam, as well as the drive for globalization
void of Judeo/Christian principles or values, we have only ourselves to blame for the ensuing
guaranteed conflict as the idea that economic development and hollow Western
materialism and consumerism fails miserably as a defense against the plague of
 Harbouring prejudice... -
