The Time Has Come Where We Realistically Need To Think About Being Ready To Defend Ourselves
A few days ago, May 2015, two ISIS operatives tried to shoot up an event hosted by Pamela Geller in Garland Texas. The event was about drawing the best picture of Mohamed, Islam’s prophet.
This event was hosted as a free speech event to prove a number of things. Primarily, that the first amendment in today’s world does not apply equally to all. Muslim terrorists have more freedoms to express themselves than Christians do.
Draw a picture of Mohamed and you are allowed to kill people. But dunk a crucifix of Christ in a jar of urine and it is called art.
Thanks to Geller’s foresight, she hired her own police security and the two ISIS terrorists were stopped before they could do their damage all in the name of Allah.
ISIS did not take long to issue a terrorist threat to Geller and all those who wish to be associated to her.
ISIS POSTS WARNING: “We Have 71 Trained Soldiers in 15 States” – ISIS NAMES 5 STATES AS TARGETS
The terrorist group says they will murder Pamela Geller and kill anyone who shields her.
The terrorists also say they have 71 fighters in 15 different states and they have signed up 23 individuals willing to die like the failed Sunday attack in Garland, Texas.
Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem
“The New Era”
To our brothers and sisters fighting for the Sake of Allah, we make dua for you and ask Allah to guide your bullets, terrify your enemies, and establish you in the Land. As our noble brother in the Phillipines said in his bayah, “This is the Golden Era, everyone who believes… is running for Shaheed”.
The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah in the heart of our enemy. Our aim was the khanzeer Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her; we will send all our Lions to achieve her slaughter. This will heal the hearts of our brothers and disperse the ones behind her. To those who protect her: this will be your only warning of housing this woman and her circus show. Everyone who houses her events, gives her a platform to spill her filth are legitimate targets. We have been watching closely who was present at this event and the shooter of our brothers. We knew that the target was protected. Our intention was to show how easy we give our lives for the Sake of Allah.
We have 71 trained soldiers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack any target we desire. Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday, We are increasing in number bithnillah. Of the 15 states, 5 we will name… Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan. The disbelievers who shot our brothers think that you killed someone untrained, nay, they gave you their bodies in plain view because we were watching.
The next six months will be interesting, To our Amir Al Mu’mineen make dua for us and continue your reign, May Allah enoble your face.
May Allah send His peace and blessings upon our Prophet Muhummad and all those who follow until the last Day.
Abu Ibrahim Al Ameriki
The time has come where we realistically need to think about being ready to defend ourselves, those we love and care for and the innocent.
NOTE - Not everyone can own a gun, use a gun or wants a gun. We need to learn how to defend when we run out of bullets and be effective. So if your quick answer is "buy a gun" then this article is not for you. BUT if you see the wisdom in having multiple combat multipliers in place, then continue reading.
LIKE IT OR NOT. ISIS is now operating here in the US and we will see an increase in terrorist actions.
The question will be, are you ready to defend your home if it is invaded?
Defending Our Homes
I am one who believes that one should try to make their home as invasion proof as possible. This is why I am big on early warning and trying to prevent entry.
What I want to show you is what Tracye and I have put in place as well as other items that might work for you.
The time is now to harden our security before someone tries to conduct a home invation.
Where we live I have implemented several security systems.
First, I have the Voice Alert System-6 Home/driveway Alarm system. I learned about this from a friend of mine when I heard his announcing that someone was at the side of the house, and then it announced that someone was by the tool shed. Come to find out it was just his dog and he forgot to turn set the alarm to daytime.
After doing a bunch of research on pricing and features and such, I had to agree that this was a great system to give us early warning.
Here is what it says about the system on Amazon.
Would you like to be alerted when.
- Cars are coming up the driveway
- Children go inside your tool shed
- Intruders approach the front or backyard
- Someone enters your garage
- Visitors are walking to the front door
- Your parked boat or motor home has been boarded
- Kids or pets are trampling your flowers. then you need the Voice Alert System-6.
System-6 allows a maximum of six user recorded messages. Each message is specific to one zone. For instance, zone one could be for a driveway alarm -"Car coming up the driveway" while zone two could be for a sensor monitoring the back yard- "Alert! Child by the pool!" Perhaps a third sensor guards a side entrance against intruders. However, when this PIR detects movement, the base unit plays "Intruder on patio" and triggers a floodlight using one of four relays included on the base unit.
System-6 can monitor all three zones simultaneously and still have three additional zones available when needed. Users can alter their messages and place the wireless sensors wherever they wish.
Voice Alert System-6 sets up in minutes and can be completely customized to fit their individual needs.
The wireless PIRs feature: all weather protection, adjustable mounting and sensitivity, and can send a signal 300 feet through walls and up to 1000 feet in open space.
This is not some cheap system either. The starter unit and one sensor is about $125.00. Each senor costs about $50.00 per and they are weather proof. I have multiple sensors all over our perimeter giving us early warning of anyone entering our yard. But they are the best out there for the dollar when it comes to home security systems that you can install.
Another item that I totally recommend is a product called the Buddy Door Jammer.
The Buddy Door Jammer, I own one of these myself and I can attest to the strength that this has. Using this properly will make your door almost impenetrable. The person/s will have to destroy your door to get in.
Here is good video review of the Buddy Door Jammer.
This is an expensive door jammer, (approx $75.00) but it is worth it. It weighs about 10 lbs and it will definitely slow down anyone who is trying to forcibly
gain access to your home.
Another good option is a door lock / FLIP LOCK. These are pretty inexpensive and you can get them at most hardware stores. Putting multiple locks one one door will also slow down a home invader. Combine both the Buddy Bar and the Flip locks and you will have a pretty secure door that intruders will have to destroy before they are able to get in.
If you have large windows or glass doors, you need to look into 8 Mil Window film.
The 8 Mil Window Film is a GREAT product and could possibly save your life. I have done studies on this and if you apply it to both sides of the window, it will prevent bricks, large rocks and in some cases even a single shotgun blast using bird shot or small game shot and even a 22 bullet.
Now I would not stand in front of the window to test it, but in some of the case studies I have seen, this stuff is worth the money. People will not come in by breaking your window, that is a guarantee. They will have to pull the entire window glass out of the frame before they are able to gain access to the home.
A great deturrent that I have placed around our home are the GE Personal Alarm System.
I learned about these several years ago by a fellow prepper buddy, “Southern Prepper 1” and have put many of these in place in windows, doors, and also created trip wires like you can see in this video from Southern Prepper 1
What happens if a person gains access? Again the focus here is defense without a gun. So what can you do to defend yourself against would be invaders?
I am a huge fan of Cold Steel Inferno. This is a pepper spray that is a foam, but once it is on the person, it melts and is very difficult to wash off. This stuff is bad to the bone and because it is a foam, you do not have to worry about a breeze blowing liquid pepper spray mist back in your own face. This is one of the problems with most liquid pepper sprays and Cold Steel got that covered.
I highly recommend that people keep a good flashlight by their bed in case of an emergency, but why not have a good weapon and light at the same time.
My go to flashlight and stun gun is the Zap Million Volt Flashlight. This is actually a rechargeable million volt stun gun and it is wicked. But you know what? It has a pretty good flashlight on it as well. This is perfect for the office, for on walks, keeping in your purse or backpack, use it to walk to your car, there are a lot of uses for it. I have had mine for over 2 years and it still holds a great charge and push the button and it is like lightning going off. It is very easy to operate and even in a panic one could use it with ease.
The Zap Flashlight is also hefty enough that if you wanted to use it as an impact weapon, well it would do the job. It has some weight to it and it is a tad bulky. That is good when you need to slam this into someone and then let them have a million volts. You get this on any bad guy and push the button, they will drop. THEN. while you have them down, I would zap them again for a good 10 seconds to make sure they are not getting back up for several long minutes. This is a good time to pull out the Cold Steel Pepper Spray and spray the bad guy in the face for a double whammy. They will not be getting up and good chances are that you will be the family hero for taking out the bad guy.
Man uses katana to stop home invasion, this is the gory aftermath
Let’s face it, we all know someone that has a few samurai swords. Whether they’re there to prevent a home invasion, or an attack by zombies after the SHTF has occurred, everyone has a reason for owning swords.
Well, in this case, the swords came to a very good use and helped to defend a man’s family from home invaders. This is the gory aftermath. The home invaders were stopped immediately upon entry into the man’s home. They bailed to their getaway car but did not make it very far due to massive blood loss. They were found by police shortly after driving away, both unconscious due to blood loss.

WARNING – THIS IS VERY GRAPHIC AND BLOODY
This is one of the reasons that I am a huge fan of the Katana, aka the Samurai sword. It is a very easy weapon to use and if you can swing a golf club or baseball bat, you can do a lot of damage to a home invader.
The Katana is a weapon that a common person can quickly learn to use and actually use it effectively. It is also fun if one gets out in the back yard and practice cutting bottles and such.
I am very partial to the Musashi Company and their excellent swords. Not only are they great quality, but they are priced right too. Sitting around $100, you can have a sword that is truly battle ready and a beautiful piece of art.
Here is the description from Amazon…
Part of a new 1060 high carbon series from Musashi. With the result being well within that goal, this blade is nothing short of an excellent value. Handmade, the blade hamon is formed by the clay temper process during production. The blade is differentially hardened and comes extremely sharp. Like the more expensive models, this blade can even be bent 45 degrees and returned to the straight and true form. This sword is well balanced and the tight handle wrap feels great.

Here is my video of me cutting banana trees with my Musashi Katana.
There are many other things that you can do to help harden your home defenses, but the key is to make the bad guy ask himself “do I really want to go into this guy’s home?”
Home intruders do not want a fight, they want to get in, get stuff and get out. The more things you have in place to deter the bad guy, the better.
Here are links (IN BOLD) to the products that I have talked about. We personally own many of these items, but I also wanted to share alternative items that I like but may not own or have tried yet.
