" . . . financial, rather than military, losses . . . will prompt the U.S. to change its policies in the Middle East and elsewhere. . . . "
Although the 9-11 overt war-strike against the United States by the Islamics appears to have been absorbed by us--the "resilient giant"--the economic woes resulting from this attack are still with us, wounds that are festering and eating into the collective health of our economic body.
Unable to repeat the success of 9-11--and not for lack of trying--the Mujahideen (Moslems engaged in jihad-war against us) are continuing their effort to cripple our economy while continuing the covert, the demographic, part of their 'holy" war by the silent invasion of Moslems into our country (abetted by a President in cahoots with them, pretending to ignore this "stealth jihad").
But what concerns us here is the economic jihad, overt symptons of which are the rapidly sinking U.S. dollar, and the oil-induced phenomenal rise in the cost of food, goods, and of course the fuel of our economy: refined petroleum products.
The "Mujahideen" Make No bones about It . . .
. . . in an article in the 26th issue of the GIMF's e-magazine Sada Al-Jihad (Echo of Jihad), recently posted on Al-Hesbah and on other Islamist websites.  The article, titled "Why the Dollar Collapsed and How America Controls the Price of Oil," discusses the factors that contributed to the devaluation of the dollar in recent years.
The author lists among the key factors the economic damage caused by Hurricane Katrina; the losses caused by the September 11 attacks; the cost of the war on terror and of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; the U.S.'s persistent trade deficit and growing government debt; investors' growing faith in the Euro; the recent subprime crisis in the U.S.; and the fact that financial institutions around the world have started to reduce their dollar reserves, thereby flooding the market with dollars and decreasing the demand for this currency.
The author ends his analysis with the following threat: "The dollar can expect two additional blows that will break its back... [namely] the announcement of the return of the Caliphate..." and the reinstatement of the gold standard in international monetary trade.
First, to the declining value of the U.S. dollar. (Watch, and keep watching, the $'s performance against the Euro.)

Muslim Terrorists May Be Trying To Sink the Dollar
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
Mujahideen terrorist groups that operate in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries "have come to the conclusion that it is financial, rather than military, losses that will prompt the U.S. to change its policies in the Middle East and elsewhere," according to MEMRI.
And so to MEMRI - Middle East Media Research Institute:
Mujahideen Monitor U.S. Economy, Attempt to Undermine Dollar
Numerous postings on Islamist websites in the past two years reflect the mujahideen's growing interest in the state of the U.S. economy. As was argued in a 2007 MEMRI analysis,  many of the jihadists and their supporters have come to view their struggle against the U.S. and the West as an economic war. More specifically, they have come to the conclusion that it is financial, rather than military, losses that will prompt the U.S. to change its policies in the Middle East and elsewhere. Consequently, they emphasize the importance of targeting U.S. interests around the world, and of directing their military jihad primarily at targets that affect the U.S. economy.
"The Dollar Can Expect Two Additional Blows That Will Break Its Back"
The mujahideen's growing interest in undermining U.S. economy is reflected, for example, in an article in the 26th issue of the GIMF's e-magazine Sada Al-Jihad (Echo of Jihad), recently posted on Al-Hesbah and on other Islamist websites.  The article, titled "Why the Dollar Collapsed and How America Controls the Price of Oil," discusses the factors that contributed to the devaluation of the dollar in recent years. Continued . . .

. . . and, let me leave you with this thought from the MEMRI article:
A recent posting on the Al-Ikhlas forum urges the mujahideen and their supporters to sell their dollars, if they have any, because Al-Qaeda is planning a strike inside the U.S. so that it will undermine the American economy: "[I advise you] to get rid of [your] American dollars... and buy gold instead... or real estate. The next attack inside the U.S. is imminent...
. . . empty rhetoric at an Islamic "forum?" Or the forecast of a three-pronged* death blow?
