An Interview with Vijay Kumar
While this interview focuses more on the political situation in the United States, it also gives a realistic picture of Islam. Kumar Vijay calls it the literal Islam. Some time ago, I indicated that America is undergoing the same process as Europe. The left-Islamist alliance is taking over America, just as they have done with Europe, and this process is in full swing. For me it is clear that Obama has a hidden agenda which the people do not know about. In this he differs not from the left-Islamic politicians in Europe, all busy to change our culture, heritage and values in order to form a society based on Islam. Vijay Kumar is a man who speaks out against this transformation. America better starts paying attention to what he says. [CP]

By Ali Sina,
Great men are born in the midst of despair, when ignorance has filled the world and evil reigns. This is indeed one such time for mankind. Islam is on the rise, Islamic terrorism is destroying countless lives throughout the world and it is threatening our freedom, our countries and our civilization. Meanwhile ignorance has blinded mankind to its peril. Humanity is walking blindfolded to its doom.
Vijay Kumar is one of the few people who understand the nature of this peril. Vijay is not a politician. He does not speak the language of politicians. He speaks the truth. Truth and politics often don’t mix. In Netherlands, the Dutch court is prosecuting a member of their parliament for speaking the truth. His prosecutor has said before the trial, “It is irrelevant whether Wilders’s witnesses might prove Wilders’s observations to be correct, what’s relevant is that his observations are illegal”.
In the USA, speaking the truth is not illegal yet, but it is politically incorrect. You will not be prosecuted yet, but you’ll face vilification, will be called racist, fascist and maligned. The US is not far behind the Europe. Things are changing rapidly and all the freedoms that the Americans had enjoyed can be lost overnight. Politicians are fast asleep.
Despite that Kumar is running for the Congress. It is now up to the voters of Tennessee to decide whether they want to send another politician to the Congress or a man who dares to speak the truth.
Faithfreedom.org is honored for this exclusive interview with Vijay Kumar, one of the few people who understands the real threat that the USA and the world is facing and has the courage to tell it like it is.
The future of America and the world depends on men and women who have the wisdom to discern the truth and the courage to defend it. This is one interview you want to read. Vijay is a man you want to know. His words of wisdom must be spread. If America is to survive as a democracy, it would be because of people like Vijay Kumar.
FAITHFREEDOM: Thank you for accepting to do this interview for Faithfreedom International. It is an honor to have you with us.
You are running for the United States Congress from the 5th Congressional District of the state of Tennessee. Obviously, as a conservative you are concerned about the deficit, the takeover of industry by the government, health care and other issues that concern every patriotic American. However, you have said that stopping the Islamization of America is your priority. I know only of one politician with a similar platform: Geert Wilders, the founder of Freedom Party in Holland. Why do you think Islamization of America should be the primary concern for Americans? What dangers are you sensing that Islam poses to America?
VIJAY KUMAR: Thank for the opportunity to be with Faith Freedom. It is indeed an honor for me. Yes, I am very interested in and concerned about the economy, the takeover of industry by the government, state-regulated healthcare, and the right to life. My website at www.kumarforcongress.com/issues contains my position on those and other important issues facing the American people.
The reason I believe that the Islamization of America should be the primary concern of Americans is that Islamic imperialism poses an existential threat to the United States, and, really, to all mankind.
America was conceived as a free constitutional republic that is of the people, by the people, and for the people. Islam was conceived as a totalitarian theocracy that is of Islam, by Islam, and for Islam. The Quran is the antithesis of the United States Constitution. They are polar opposites. They are diametrically opposed. I don’t say that as some Hegelian abstraction: I mean that these two documents are ideological opposites of each other in their most basic purposes and goals.
The purpose of our Constitution is to secure and guarantee to all people the greatest possible freedom. The purpose of Islam is for all people to submit to Islam, and only Islam—not just spiritually, but politically and secularly, in every aspect of law and life.
These two purposes could not possibly be in greater opposition.
Our constitutional republic is built upon the foundation of separation of church and state, with a representative form of government that derives all of its power from the will of the people, framed by a Constitution that is the supreme law of the land.
Islam is built on a foundation of church and state being one, an inseparable autocratic form of government that derives all of its power solely from the will of Allah, framed exclusively by Islamic law—which Islam holds to be divine, supreme, and immutable.
So the danger that Islam poses to America is that Islam, at its core, is ideologically at war with our Constitution. It is a declared war against everything our Constitution stands for. This is a war of polarized ideologies, and they are irreconcilable.
Every conflict we have with Muslims and Islamic nations everywhere around the world arises from that one very simple fact. All other “explanations” are wrong, and so lead to no solutions, only endless turmoil.
The idea that somehow the United States antagonized the current conflicts with Islamic nations and Muslim terrorists is specious. The very existence of our Constitution is what antagonizes Islam. It stands in stark opposition to Islam’s worldwide goal of domination over all mankind. We could be doing absolutely nothing anywhere in the world, and still would be an object of Islam’s contempt and aggression for the sole reason that we do not submit ourselves to Islamic law, and we further have the gall to proclaim in our Constitution that people have the right to choose a religion other than Islam—or no religion at all.
One cannot serve two masters. One cannot to be loyal to the United States Constitution and to the Quran at the same time.
Muslims and non-Muslims alike, need to face up to this incontrovertible fact: Islam’s ultimate goal is world domination by Islamic rule, and America stands as the single greatest barrier to the realization of that ultimate goal. That is the exact simple statement of the problem.
For that reason, Islam, at its core, requires the overthrow of the American government, the destruction of our Constitution, and the cancellation of all of our laws as its ultimate goal in America, so that all of those can be replaced with the Quran and Sharia law.
Islam, at its core, also demands the suppression and ultimate eradication of every other church and religion in the world: Protestant, Catholic, Coptic, Judaic, Buddhist, Mormon, Hindu, Zoroastrian—none are exempt. All paths to spiritual enlightenment and sacred belief known to man that are not Islam—and even materialism, agnosticism, and atheism—are branded by the Quran as inferior, and not really worthy of existence.
Islam, at its core, also mandates inequality under Islamic law, using a double standard specifically designed to oppress to any “non- believer.” It enforces Sharia law and its inherent discrimination with draconian penalties, including selective taxes, dismemberment, and execution.
Islam, at its core, also commands complete and inescapable submission of the mind and spirit to its scripture as supreme and divine law that overrides and supersedes all the human rights and freedoms that we, as Americans, hold sacred—including, ironically, freedom of religion. The Quran and Sharia law suppress all dissent, and call for the destruction of all opposition to Islamic supremacy. To leave Islam, or even to criticize it, is punishable by death. Comedy Central thought that was a joke. They’re now finding out that perhaps it’s not so funny after all.
These goals and purposes of Islam I’ve stated are not “Radical Islam;” they are Literal Islam. These are the fundamental canonical goals of Islam’s most holy scripture, spelled out quite clearly in the Quran and Hadith, and being put into force right this minute in nations around the world.
The Islamic theologian Syed Abul A’ala Maududi left no doubt about Islam’s ultimate goals when he said: “Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a state on the basis of its own ideology and program.”
Given that the ideology of Islam itself is opposed to human rights and freedom, that automatically, by reversal, makes every liberal democracy on Earth “opposed to the ideology and program of Islam”—as Maududi put it, typically accusing those in favor of freedom as being the offenders.
I realize that reciting these goals of Islam is not popular or “politically correct” in our culture today, exactly because of the flood of propaganda insisting that Islam is merely “another religion” and “a religion of peace.”
But Islam, at its core, is a faith-based political theocracy whose most basic tenets and goals are a nullification of our Constitution, and, as such, it is the single greatest threat that America—and, indeed, the entire free world—has ever faced. It is a consummate totalitarianism against which every other totalitarianism should be measured. Expressly because of its religious component, Islamic imperialism is far more dangerous than Nazism and Communism combined.
Hitler came to power in 1939, and World War II ended in 1945 with the defeat of Nazi Germany. Hitler was in power for about 15 years. The Communist Soviet Union lasted longer, for about 74 years. The Soviet Union and Soviet sponsored Communism died of their own internal contradictions.
Yet today, Islam’s Universal Jihad has gained control of over 50 countries in the world, according to the CIA’s own World Fact Book. That’s more than Nazism and Soviet Communism combined. And Islam is well on its way to demographic control in over a dozen other countries.
FAITHFREEDOM: Could you expand on what you mean by demographic control, in the context of Universal Jihad?
VIJAY KUMAR: Universal Jihad is a war that has been waged by Islam against the rest of the world for 1400 years. It is by no means limited to violent conflict or terrorism, and demographic conquest is the most permanent form of conquest. Once Muslims replace enough of the population of any country, the non-believers will lose their nation, their culture, their heritage, their civilization, their laws, their land, and their fundamental human rights forever.
Instead of assimilating into any society, Islam seeks to establish a state-within-a-state, to insinuate Sharia law into the existing system of law and expand it by degrees until it can consume it.
Islam and our Constitution cannot merge. They cannot mix. The oil-and-water analogy would be the easiest to make, but the more accurate one, in the case of Islam and the Constitution, is that of a parasite and host.
As it has done with other cultures, Islam uses our religious tolerance—which is codified in the “free exercise clause” of our Constitution—first as an entrance point to insinuate itself, then as a protective cyst while it feeds on the host and grows and spreads.
There are more than a few examples in history. Zoroastrian Persia, Buddhist Afghanistan, Hindu Pakistan, and Christian Egypt all extended tolerance to Islam. All have been metamorphosed into Islamic nations. Their pre-Islamic past is all but wiped out. No one really knows the many achievements, contributions, and heritage of these once great civilizations.
The Hindu civilization today is half of what it used to be. After a thousand years of living in an undivided India, in 1947 the Muslims there wanted their own country, and so was born Pakistan. Similarly, in Yugoslavia, after a thousand years of co-existence, Slavic Muslims there wanted their own country, and so was born Bosnia.
America and Europe certainly will suffer the same fate of these past civilizations if effective action is not taken.
The same sort of parasitic process has taken hold today in Europe. Britain, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Italy—all are being inundated by Muslim immigration and suffering the inevitable smothering of their traditional values, culture, and political systems by Islamic influence peddling and Sharia law.
FAITHFREEDOM: How do you see Sharia law factoring into the doctrine of Universal Jihad, and what are its implications for America?
VIJAY KUMAR: Right now, today, our banks have succumbed to Islamic insistence on separate banking terms for Muslims. Sharia forbids Muslims from paying interest, so Muslims do not get mortgages with interest. They get a loan that has a “fee” instead. Of course liberals, who are Islam’s water-carriers, defend this blatant discrimination that is based solely on religion, while speaking out the other side of their mouths about “equality for all.”
In 2008, the United Kingdom officially sanctioned Sharia courts to rule on Muslim civil matters. In much the same way that Muslims use the “free exercise” clause of our Constitution as a bludgeon against us to extort special concessions and privileges, Muslims in England found in the British Arbitration Act an entrance point to the host and a cyst to protect itself while it slowly, methodically grows and feeds. It will consume the host unless and until the British people remove it from their system.
And it is coming to the United States.
Without belaboring cites, to date our Supreme Court has made a distinction between the religious and the secular in rulings on the “establishment clause” and “free exercise” clause. So far, that has acted as at least something of an immunizing defense for our system of law against the infection of Sharia religious law. But anyone who deludes themselves into believing for a moment that Muslims are not working around the clock to find a weak spot, an open wound in our legal system, through which to invade and begin a systematic takeover is in blind, fatal denial.
Islam is not merely a personal faith like Buddhism and Christianity. It also is a complete political ideology and legal system, and that is Sharia law. It asserts the universal supremacy of Islamic law over every religion, every nation, and every other system of law and government. Those who do not share its ideology are dismissed as inferiors: “infidels.”
That is why it has to destroy the United States Constitution if it ever is to achieve its ultimate goals. That is what we face if we, as Americans, don’t come to grips with the purpose of our Constitution versus the policies that are codified in it.
There is a world of difference, and purpose is far more important than policy. Let me reiterate what I said earlier: The purpose of our Constitution is to secure and guarantee to all people the greatest possible freedom. The purpose of Islam is for all people in the world to submit to Islam, and only Islam—not just spiritually, but politically and secularly, in every aspect of law and life.
If we allow the policy of “free exercise” of religion to be used by Islam as a weapon to destroy the very Constitution that guarantees it, and to destroy the very purpose for which America was born, then we have committed national suicide and we deserve whatever fate befalls us for letting down all the people in the world who ever have looked to America as the model—and the last fortress—of human rights and freedoms.
I don’t know how there can be a greater concern to any American.
FAITH FREEDOM: Do you believe the American public is not being told the truth about this peril by the mainstream media and the government?
VIJAY KUMAR: The American public is not getting anything approaching the truth, and it’s difficult to know which is the greater offender: the government or the so-called mainstream media. Fortunately, we have FaithFreedom.org, and now a growing number of other web sites, that dare to tell the truth. But there is a continuous overwhelming flood of misinformation and disinformation that goes out from government officials and the mainstream media.
The biggest lie being told by the government and the media—and it is a lie—is that Islamic terrorism and violence, are the product of “radical” Muslims or of Islamic “extremists.” The simple truth that should be told is that Islamic terrorists and those who fight against “the infidel” are only complying with the exact commands of Allah, according to Islam’s own scripture.
Anyone who claims that world domination and the attendant eradication of the most precious of human rights and freedoms are not the ultimate goals of Islam is either grossly uninformed or is intentionally lying. In either case, given the gravity of the threat that Islam poses, politicians who deny that these are Islam’s goals are not fit for public office. They are betraying the trust of the American people, and betraying their own oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
In doing so, they are poisoning the groundwater of human knowledge with infamous falsehoods, and those falsehoods rapidly are spreading around the world by even well-meaning people.
Let me give you an example. Chana Weisberg, a Jewish educator and columnist, wrote an article called “The Threat of Extremism,” and in it she makes reference to what she calls Islam’s “fanatical Imams from the hotbed of their radical societies, like Saudi Arabia.” That is one dense package of distortion and falsehood.
Saudi Arabia, a “radical” Islamic society? Saudi Arabia is the birthplace of Islam. Saudi Arabia is the home of Muhammad. Saudi Arabia is the land of Mecca, where every Muslim in the world is obligated to go at least once in his life on pilgrimage. Saudi Arabia is the world model of the consummate accomplishment of Literal Islam. Yet Ms. Weisberg calls it a “radical” Islamic society, and calls its exported Imams “fanatical.”
They are not “fanatical” Imams at all; they are the very embodiment, the apotheosis, the epitome of orthodox, Literal Islam. It is their devout and orthodox application of Literal Islam that demands endless jihad against the infidel, until every head bows in submission before Allah. This, after all, is the entire purpose and goal of Islam.
The very use of these adjectives such as “radical” and “extremist” and “fanatical” in relation to Islamic violence and terrorism is done to construct a fiction: it pretends that there is some other brand of Islam. There is not. There never has been. That is simply propaganda. The founder of Islam honed all the tactics of Universal Jihad to a fine art 1400 years ago and conquered Arabia using them. Those have been the same tools of Islamic imperialism ever since.
Islam’s own scripture dictates that the best deed a Muslim can do is “to believe in Allah and fight for his cause.” Islamic propagandists leap to claim that such quotations are “taken out of context.” The gullible never stop to ponder what possible benign “context” there could be for such a sweeping, absolute command. Of course there is none.
We never speak of “radical” Quakers, do we? Of course not! There is no reason to, because Quakers do not have as core principle world domination through violence and terrorism. We don’t even speak of “fanatical” physicists, yet physicists developed the most destructive weapon ever known to man. But if the government and the media were to strip away these extraneous—and entirely false—adjectives in referring to the wholesale destruction being wrought daily throughout the world by Muslims, it would lay bare the true basic nature of Islam for what it actually is.
The goal of Islam, by their own scripture, is to “fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.” That fight has never stopped for 1400 years.
So the only real “radicals” in relation to Islam are those who clamor and claim that Islam can peacefully and equally co-exist indefinitely alongside other religions, and can assimilate within other political ideologies and systems not controlled by Islam’s Sharia law. That is radical disinformation. It is entirely contrary to the most fundamental and forceful tenets of Islamic scripture.
Islam exists peacefully and quietly in such circumstances only until it is in a position of strength to change the circumstances and conquer: to take control of the host. Islam always seeks to become a state-within-a-state wherever it makes inroads, with the ultimate goal of replacing the entire law and entire civilization of any nation with Sharia law, and with the Quran as the only acceptable constitution. In short, Islam fully intends for all nations to become Islamic nations.
That is precisely what Saudi Arabia is: the pinnacle of Islamic societies. The Quran is its only constitution. Sharia is its only law. Islam is its only acceptable religion. That is not “Radical Islam;” that is the pure orthodoxy of Literal Islam. That is what Islam wants to enforce upon every nation, every culture in the world, by any means, by any strategy, by any tactic. Those methods of fighting include willful deception, infiltration, terror, violence, propaganda, psychological warfare, and demographic saturation.
That is Universal Jihad.
FAITHFREEDOM: Does America have any strategy or foreign policy recognizing or addressing Universal Jihad?
VIJAY KUMAR: None whatsoever. The administration doesn’t admit its existence. For a decade, America has spent trillions of dollars and countless lives fighting a phantom called a “terrorism.” There is no such thing as war on terror, there never has been, and there cannot ever be. Terrorism is merely one technique, one method, one tool of Islam to advance its goal of world domination.
By choosing to chase after non-state elements like al-Queda and the Taliban, our leaders are deliberately refusing to define who the true enemy is. The true enemy is not al-Queda or the Taliban. Those rag-tag groups are only disposable foot soldiers in this eternal Islamic Universal Jihad against humanity. And they are devout soldiers of Literal Islam, not “radical” soldiers of Islam.
The real architects and funders of Universal Jihad are the theocratic leaders of Iran, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. Our government, because of vested interests, embraces the latter two nations as allies and “friends.” They might as well embrace an asp.
The first thing that needs to be done is to formally declare Iran, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia as the ideological enemies of freedom that they are, and to name them as the Axis of Universal Jihad.
The second thing that needs to be done is to build a United Front of Victims of Jihad. Involve all nations who historically have been victims of Jihad. There are many.
The third thing that needs to be done is to employ that United Front of Victims of Jihad to isolate, liberate, democratize, and secularize the Axis of Universal Jihad: Iran, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia.
That would be effective. That would get the job done and the ideological war won. It could be done within five years, for less than one billion dollars, and without the further loss of American life.
FAITHFREEDOM: Mr. Obama has decided to omit terms such as “Islamic extremism” and “Islamic radicalism” from key national security documents. What do you think of that? Is there a real agenda behind Obama’s decision that the public does not know or is he merely naive and misguided?
VIJAY KUMAR: It’s just the latest foray in the endless propaganda war of redefining terms. None of it ever changes a word of the Quran, though, does it?
As we discussed earlier, “Islamic extremism” and “Islamic terrorism” are tautologies. They are superfluous. Islam at its core is “extreme” compared to every rational ideology in the world, because it does not recognize any form of pluralism. That is, it has nothing but contempt for the beliefs and faith systems of six billion infidels.
Mr. Obama’s real intention with his word shuffling is not to soft-peddle the words like “extremism” and ‘terrorism;” his real intention is to soft-peddle the word “Islam” in relation to its violent acts around the world. Barack Hussein Obama is a crypto-Muslim. He is not misguided. He is supremely articulate and very well informed. He is softening the United States foreign and domestic policy to please Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, and Pakistan.
More than any president in the history of United States, Barack Obama is extremely soft on the avowed enemies of the United States. That in itself is cause for deep concern.
And while these disingenuous politicians and bureaucrats fritter away tax dollars playing reprehensible semantic games, our American soldiers are dying right now in Afghanistan and Iraq. Even as our soldiers are fighting and dying to liberate both nations from tyrants, the administrations of both Afghanistan and Iraq have chosen to have Sharia as the law of the land. It is a bitter and heartbreaking irony that our young men and women are dying to defend and support Sharia law, which brands our nation as infidel and inferior, and makes a mockery of our Constitution.
Then again, so does Barack Hussein Obama.
FAITHFREEDOM: Back in late January, Mr. Obama overturned a President Bush ban on Tariq Ramadan. Mr. Ramadan is a scholar of Islam residing in UK. He is the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, the founder of Muslim Brotherhood and a confidant of Hitler. In fact Hitler’s idea of the “Final Solution” came from al-Banna, who suggested it after the Muslim Turks had gassed to death 1.5 million Armenians. Tariq Ramadan recently made his first public appearance in the U.S. since the U.S. State Department barred his entry back in 2004. Do you agree with Mr. Obama for lifting the ban on Ramadan and if not, why not?
VIJAY KUMAR: Mr. Obama is simply wrong, but it is one more example of his pandering to Islamic imperialism, and further confirmation that he is a crypto-Muslim. Mr. Ramadan should be persona non grata in the United States. Armenian genocide by Turkey must be acknowledged by the United States, and if I am elected to Congress I will work hard to pass a resolution to that effect.
FAITHFREEDOM: You lived in the Islamic Republic of Iran and know them to some extent. Many people believe that the most critical political issue is the nuclear program of the Islamic Republic of Iran. However, Mr. Obama and his administration seem to not be too concerned. What dangers do you see in that and what you propose should be done?
VIJAY KUMAR: Iran cannot be allowed to have nuclear weapons under any circumstances. My proposal to create a United Front of Victims of Jihad to deal with the Axis of Universal Jihad addresses this.
Iran also is ready for a revolution by those forces within it that are against Islamic religious fundamentalism. Before being consumed by Literal Islam, Iran had a five thousand year history of a glorious civilization. Cyrus the Great, when Iran was Persia, was the first to propose a universal declaration of human rights.
I have known many young Iranians in the United States. Some of them are good friends of mine. Most of them are secular, intellectually liberal, and believe in theological and political pluralism.
I lived in Iran between 1976 in 1979—about six months in Tehran, and about two years in Bandar Abbas. The only religious and ethnic contempt I received in Iran was not from Iranians, but from fellow Indian immigrants who were Muslim, and Pakistani immigrants to Iran who were Muslim. This was just before the 1979 Islamic revolution.
It was quite remarkable to discover how westernized Iran was even in late 1970s. I think the young men and women in Iran would like to get rid of the Ayatollahs’ religious theocracy and replace it with a secular democratic republic. These are my conclusions, and, of course, my opinions are very subjective.
There is only one way the Ayatollahs can stay in power: that is to continue to demonize the specters of the United States and Israel. Otherwise, there is no logical purpose for the Ayatollah regime’s existence.
The central goal of the free world should be to demilitarize, secularize, and democratize Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan. I sincerely hope that the Iranian people will revitalize the great religion of their ancestors, Zoroastrianism, and all the good that it brought to the world. A Zoroastrian Iran will be one of the great civilized and civilizing nations of the world—fulfilling the Zoroastrian belief that Spenta Mainyu, the spirit of good, will triumph over Angra Mainyu, the spirit of evil.
FAITHFREEDOM: Many Americans believe that Mr. Obama was not born in America, that he does not have American citizenship and is an illegal alien. The Kenyan lawmakers are openly saying that Obama was born in Kenya and are praising the Americans for allowing a foreigner to become their president. But this is against the Constitution. Many U.S. lawmakers and even the courts have refused to touch this subject. What is your opinion? Do you think that Mr. Obama should prove his eligibility? Will you, if elected, ask Mr. Obama to satisfy the American citizens that he is indeed qualified to serve as their president?
VIJAY KUMAR: Of course he should supply the document that would prove his eligibility because it’s a Constitutional requirement. The document the White House keeps referring to is not the actual long-form birth certificate and does not qualify. His refusal to produce the correct original document, which only he can do, is an act of arrogance toward and defiance of our Constitution. It makes mockery of the Constitution, and it ridicules the people of good faith who have asked him to comply with it. It prolongs and antagonizes the issue, and since he is the one person who could easily end it with one simple act of disclosure, it proves conclusively that he wants the controversy to go on. It is indefensible.
I’ll mention that it now look like he’s going to have to produce it if he wants to appear as a presidential candidate on the Arizona ballot in 2012: the Arizona House of Representatives just voted for a provision that would require presidential candidates to submit documents proving they meet the constitutional requirements.
FAITHFREEDOM: There is no secret that a great part of the money we spend on gasoline finances Islamic terrorism. Both Iran and Saudi Arabia spend billions in spreading their Islamic ideology worldwide and with the spread of Islam, Islamic terrorism is on the rise. What is your position, in regards to developing our own natural resources, as Governor Palin suggested during her 2008 campaign?
VIJAY KUMAR: I am for an all-out program—and I mean comparable to John F. Kennedy’s goal for putting a man on the moon—to develop every possible natural resource we have, and to encourage research and development of every possible kind of alternative energy, now known and yet to be discovered. I am all for fully developing wind, solar and wave technology, fuel cell technology, natural gas—anything and everything that holds promise for supplying our own energy needs.
People look at me strangely, as a conservative, and ask if that means I am for green energy. Well, I don’t care if it’s green, purple, or polka-dot. I just believe that we have all the talent, skill, innovation, and determination necessary to accomplish anything, including breaking our addiction to oil, and leading the way to ending the world’s reliance on it.
I know we can do it if we only set it as an unequivocal national goal.
Your point that money spent on oil goes to fund Islamic terrorism is an important one. A recent commercial on television points out that for every dollar that gas goes up, a billion and a half dollars becomes available for funding and arming Islamic imperialism.
So, yes, we must make developing our own natural resources a national priority, both as the intelligent thing to do, and also to break the chains that hold us as hostages to Islamic imperialism.
But we must do more if we value and want to preserve our nation, our Constitution, our religious freedoms, our civil rights, and our way of life.
We must declare Iran, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia as the Axis of Jihad. The immediate goal of the free world should be demilitarize, secularize, and democratize these three nations.
We must stop immigration from Islamic nations where Sharia is the law of the land, except for giving refuge to those escaping Islamic totalitarianism: refugees and apostates.
We must declare, correctly, that demands for implementation of Sharia law in our nation are not “free exercise” of religion, but are secular demands for the overthrow of our Constitution, and as such constitute criminal acts of sedition.
We must coalesce and organize the United Front of Victims of Jihad: Jew and Gentile, Saxon and Slav, Hindu and Buddhist, Agnostic and Atheist, Catholic and Protestant, Orthodox and Evangelical, Norwegian and Nigerian. It is quite possible to build just such a logical and lasting political and military alliance.
We must declare throughout the world and assert without apology our unwavering dedication to human freedom, human dignity, pluralism, reason, empirical evidence, and scientific method as our rightful stand against Islamic imperialism and totalitarianism.
Our freedom, our very survival is at stake. The reason I am running for Congress is to propagate and defend these ideals.
