Muslim Brotherhood Civilization Jihad

“Muslim Brotherhood
‘Declares War’ on U.S.”


Dear Friends,

For years the Muslim Brotherhood has had a plan for “civilization jihad” against the West. The goal, stated in its strategic memorandum: “destroying the Western civilization from within.”

Brigitte Gabriel devoted an entire chapter to this in her best-selling book, They Must Be Stopped. (If you already have a copy, we encourage you to purchase another one and donate it to your local library.)

As the WorldNetDaily story below reveals (highlights added), the Muslim Brotherhood is openly moving to the next stage of jihad—violent jihad. Meanwhile, the Obama administration and numerous government agencies continue their failed policy of “outreach” to leaders and organizations affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. They hope against hope this will “marginalize” the “extremists.”

As Dr. Phil would say, “how’s that working out for you?”

Muslim Brotherhood 'declares war' on U.S.

Analyst compares leader's sermon to bin Laden's pre-9/11 warning

Five years before the 9/11 attacks, al-Qaida declared war on America, the West, Christians and Jews – and virtually no one noticed.

Now, a longtime observer of Islam is warning that a "war declaration" of potentially much greater significance has been made.

The Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Badi, who was elected only months ago, has "endorsed anti-American Jihad and pretty much every element in the al-Qaida ideology book," writes Barry Rubin, author and director of the Global Research in International Affairs Center and editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs Journal.

The Brotherhood – the dominant Islamic organization in the West that has spawned most of the major Muslim terrorist groups, including al-Qaida, along with the largest "mainstream" organizations – is giving the signal that it is "ready to move from the era of propaganda and base-building to one of revolutionary action," says Rubin.

Get "Muslim Mafia," the book that exposed the Muslim Brotherhood and organizations like the Council on American Islamic Relations from the inside out, autographed, from WND's Superstore!

In a sermon published Sept. 30 titled "How Islam Confronts the Oppression and Tyranny [against the Muslims]," Badi said waging jihad against both Israel and the United States is a commandment of Allah that cannot be disregarded.

The remarks were delivered in a weekly sermon, published Sept. 30 on the Muslim Brotherhood's website and translated into English by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Governments trying to stop Muslims from fighting the U.S., he said, "are disregarding Allah's commandment to wage jihad for His sake with [their] money and [their] lives, so that Allah's word will reign supreme" over all non-Muslims.

Rubin concludes: "Let it be said that in September 2010, the Muslim Brotherhood, a group with 100 times more activists than al-Qaida, issued its declaration of war."

He calls the sermon "one of those obscure Middle East events of the utmost significance that is ignored by the Western mass media, especially because they happen in Arabic, not English; by Western governments, because they don't fit their policies; and by experts, because they don't mesh with their preconceptions."

The sermon is a signal to the Brotherhood's hundreds of thousands of followers, Rubin says.

"Some of them will engage in terrorist violence as individuals or forming splinter groups; others will redouble their efforts to seize control of their countries and turn them into safe areas for terrorists and instruments for war on the West."

Rubin calls Badi's "explicit formulation of a revolutionary program" a "game-changer."

"It should be read by every Western decision-maker and have a direct effect on policy because this development may affect people's lives in every Western country," he writes.

Some U.S. and Western leaders are urging engagement and partnership with the Brotherhood, Rubin notes, because they regard it as moderate. But the movement, founded in the 1920s in the wake of the collapse of the Ottoman Turkish empire, considers itself an instrument of the charge Muslims were given when Islam was founded 1,400 years ago – to make the Quran and Allah's authority supreme over the entire world.

In a 1991 document titled "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America," the Brotherhood stated the Muslim community "must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions."

In his sermon, Badi declared Arab and Muslim regimes are betraying their people by failing to confront the Muslim's real enemies, not only Israel but also the United States.

All Muslims are required by their religion to fight, he said: "They crucially need to understand that the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life."

Asked by WND to assess Rubin's conclusions, Robert Spencer, author and director of the website JihadWatch.org, said Rubin is right that "war against the West has been the Brotherhood's program, according to captured internal documents, since at least 1982."

"This sermon just crystallizes many of the ideas contained in those documents," he told WND.

Spencer said be believes it's possible that Badi's sermon is a seminal declaration of war comparable to al-Qaida's 1996 declaration.

"It certainly could be," he said, "but I don't see it as all that much qualitatively different from things they've said before. If they were dedicated as far back as 1991 to 'eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within,' this doesn't seem to represent a huge departure."

Call to arms

Rubin emphasizes the significance of the remarks coming from Badi. He explains that when a "marginal Muslim cleric" like Britain's Anjem Choudary says that Islam will conquer the West and raise its flag over the White House, the remark can be treated as "wild rhetoric."

"But when the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood says the same thing in Arabic, that's a program for action, a call to arms for hundreds of thousands of people, and a national security threat to every Western country," Rubin says.

Rubin notes the Muslim Brotherhood controls front groups recognized by Western governments and media as authoritative. Government officials in many countries meet with these groups, he says, asking them to be advisers for counter-terrorist strategies and national policies.

Prominent U.S. organizations launched by Muslim Brotherhood leaders include the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Students Association, North American Islamic Trust, the Islamic Society of North America, the American Muslim Council, the Muslim American Society and the International Institute of Islamic Thought.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR – a self-described civil rights group that has more than a dozen former and current leaders with known associations with violent jihad – is trying to keep alive a lawsuit against WND and two investigators behind the best-selling expose "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America."

CAIR's origin as a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas is documented in "Muslim Mafia." CAIR and some of its leaders were confirmed by the Justice Department as unindicted co-conspirators in the trial of the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation, which was convicted of helping fund Hamas.

Banner of the revolution

Rubin points out President Obama "speaks about a conflict limited solely to al-Qaida," which "makes sense when referring to Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen."

"Yet there is a far bigger and wider battle going on in which revolutionary Islamists seek to overthrow their own rulers and wage long-term, full-scale struggle against the West," he says. "If it doesn't involve violence right now, it will when they get strong enough or gain power."

Three years ago, Rubin published a detailed analysis of the development, explaining that the "banner of the Islamist revolution in the Middle East today has largely passed to groups sponsored by or derived from the Muslim Brotherhood."

The exposure, he writes, "so upset the Brotherhood that it put a detailed response on its official website to deny my analysis."

"Yet now here is the Brotherhood's new supreme guide, Muhammad Badi giving a sermon entitled, 'How Islam Confronts the Oppression and Tyranny,'" Rubin says.

Badi's interpretation, he says, is in tune with the stances and holy books of normative Islam.

"It is not the only possible interpretation, but it is a completely legitimate interpretation," he says. "Every Muslim knows, even if he disagrees with the Brotherhood's position, that this isn't heresy or hijacking or misunderstanding."

The Brotherhood as a Legitimate Political Party

Taking a clue from the PLO, the Muslim Brotherhood attempts to gain power as an elected poliltical party in Egypt. Click HERE for the story.

How soon before the Islamist Obama will officially recognize the Brotherhood and invite it's leader's to a night or two in the White House along with a tour of CIA headquarters?

DHIIMMI DUMMY of the DAY AWARD - Individual, Dwight Holton, Portland, Oregon


Today's receipient is U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton, (scroll down a short way and read the post titled Eliminating Evidence?) speaking his ignorance and lies as regards the mosque fire in Portland, Oregon.

Mr. Holton boldly declares "The fact is that violent extremists come from all religions and no religion at all. For one person to blame a group, if that's what happened here, is uniquely anti-American..........................." This dufus must have been living in a cave since yesterday! We all know that the linking factor in the large majority of religious extremism is without a doubt Islam. Yes, Timothy McVeigh was Christian, but he did not blow up anything in the name of Christianity. The Muslim extremists blow things up BECAUSE they are Muslim. They are reading the same so-called "holy book/death manual/Qur'an as their so far non-extremist/radical brethern.

DHIMMI DUMMY U.S. ATTORNEY DWIGHT HOLTON, wake the freak up, dude! At least do yourself the favor of not showing what a complete idiot you are when it comes to religious extremism. Oh and hey, when was the last time you heard of a Buddist blowing something up in the name of Buddah???? ah, what? NEVER! U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton is a media whore's dream of an official ignoranmous!

Brigitte Gabriel in Lebanon, 1987

Dear Readers,
I am honored to be a small part of Act for America and to be associated with such a brave and gracious woman who works tirelessly to educate and protect the American Public from the destruction and horror of radical Islam.

****************************************************************
Video: Brigitte Gabriel in Lebanon, 1987


“Thirty-five years ago this month, my home was bombed”


Dear Friends,

As we celebrate Thanksgiving in this land of abundance, we reflect back on all the blessings we have in our lives. For me every Thanksgiving has special significance because it was at the end of November, 1975 that my life was changed forever.

Recently, I showed some friends a video that my husband, a journalist I met in Israel, made about my life to introduce me during our wedding ceremony in America in 1987. My friends said: “Brigitte you should show this, so people can see what you talk about in your book.”

This video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZF_RAVUbdE was done 23 years ago, before I came to America, well before realizing my mission in life and well before starting ACT! for America. In this video, you will see my home, my parents, and scenes of my life during the war, shot with my mother and my cousin depicting my experience in the very bomb shelter I lived in.

When people ask me why I am so passionate about fighting the threat of radical Islam, and why I am so thankful for America, this is why.

Always devoted,


Brigitte Gabriel

120,000 Petition Signatures delivered to Mayor Bloomberg

Yesterday, at a news conference held at New York’s City Hall, ACT! for America Executive Director Guy Rodgers delivered our Ground Zero Mosque petition, signed by over 120,000 people, to Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Rodgers delivered a statement describing why ACT! for America launched this petition, that this was not an election year issue, and that the opposition to the Ground Zero Mosque was not going away. Afterwards he answered several questions from the assembled press.

Dhimmi of the Day Award - Retired Supreme Court Justice Stevens

Proving that the wisest amongst us can lapse into Alzheimer's and a world of fantasy, Retired Supreme Court Justice Stevens totally misses the point on the question of a mosque at ground zero.

Lt. General Boykin on the Ft. Hood Massacre

Lt. General Jerry Boykin was forced into retirement because he spoke openly of his Christian faith while in uniform. Mass murderer U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hassan, however, was not only allowed to practice his Muslim faith in uniform but even spew Islam's hatred of all non-Muslims. And on November 5, 2009, Hassan practiced his faith by slaughtering 13 people and wounding 30 others.

http://downloads.cbn.com/cbnnewsplayer/cbnPlayer.swf?aid=11991

Christian Broadcasting Network has now interviewed Lt. General Boykin and asked him why it was that Hassan was able to perpetrate that terrorist act. Boykin's response is direct and honest - and it is a certainty that this response of his will never be shown on America's mainstream media.

Watch this video before it completely disappears from the ether.


"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."



Tolerance is a crime when applied to evil!


Thank you, Richard.

Obama deems your RIGHT to vote as a PRIVILEGE

friends:

b. hussein obama has just said that america exercise a "privilege" to vote yesterday.

it is very important that you understand the difference between a "right" to vote, which you exercise, and the "privilege" that b. hussein obama would like to regulate. hey, he chose the word, he is a lawyer educated at harvard, and a "law professor" (actually, he was a "lecturer," and their is a very large difference between professor and lecturer) at the university of chicago, a reputable institution at one time. it is the difference between a "yugo" and a rolls royce.)

there are no accidents in choosing between the words "right" and "privilege," so i have to conclude he meant precisely as he said, precisely as he read from his prepared remarks. it is best you understand the difference, clearly.

a Pattern of submission at 9/11 sites

Blogburst logo, petitionAlan Keyes, logo-size

Conservative hero Alan Keyes is asking whether there is a pattern of submission surrounding the nation's 9/11 sites. Apparently he has seen our video expose of Islamic and terrorist memorializing features in the crescent memorial to Flight 93 (now called a broken circle). Like any straight-thinker, he doesn't like what he sees. The Flight 93 crash site is no place for a giant Islamic-shaped crescent, no matter what it is called.

On this point, Keyes cites Colorado Representative Tom Tancredo's 2005 objection to the newly unveiled Crescent of Embrace design:
Back in 2005, then-Rep. Tom Tancredo was reported to have sent a letter to the National Park Service "asking the Interior Department to reconsider the crescent-shaped design of the memorial to those aboard a plane hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001, because some may think it honors the terrorists." Tancredo quite sensibly argues that "regardless of whether 'the invocation of a Muslim Symbol' was intentional, 'it seems that such a symbol is unsuitable for paying appropriate tribute to the heroes of Flight 93 or the ensuing American struggle against radical Islam.'"
Keyes notes our claim that the design is still replete with terrorist memorializing features and he seems to find it credible. Why shouldn't he? The damning features are all right there in architect Paul Murdoch's design drawings. Thank you Doctor Keyes!


"It’s not just embarrassing. It is a dangerous willful blindness, spurning the woken vigilance of Flight 93."

That's the last line of the full-page advertisement that Tom Burnett Senior and Alec Rawls will be running in the Somerset Daily American this Friday and Saturday (when the two first ladies will be in town for the 9/11 anniversary):

Honor Flight 93

Flight 93 on 9/11: Ride to Stop the Crescent Mosque

Anyone live within driving distance of Somerset Pennsylvania? It's a beautiful place to visit and a group of motorcyclists from Indianapolis is already going.

Tom Burnett Senior and Alec Rawls are buying full page color ads in the Somerset Daily American for both Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th, so anyone who makes the trip will have a ready made protest sign waiting for them. Just buy a newspaper, tape the ad to a piece of cardboard, and let the massed national media know what side you are on.

That's right. With Laura Bush and Michelle Obama both attending, it's going to be a media circus, and a rare opportunity to force coverage of our issue. Just self-organize. Ad-holders will show a core of united opposition (and the media might even be forced to read our brief expose).

A PDF of the ad will be posted in another blogburst next week for anyone who wants to make signs ahead of time. There is also a set of small posters that were put together for a previous talk by Mr. Burnett. Just print with tiling to make the finished product as large or small as you want:
Board 1: The giant crescent

Board 2: It points to Mecca

Board 3: The gigantic Islamic sundial

Board 4: The 44 glass blocks

Petition to stop the Flight 93 memorial passes 10,000 signatures

Including a spate of dozen or so by 9/11 family members that feature some very strong comments. (See pages 198 and 199.)

Blogburst logo, petition


It Points to Mecca video nearing 20,000 hits

Thanks to big fat repostings by Creeping Sharia and Atlas Shrugs. Thank You!



Here are parts 2, 3 and 4 (also worthy):

“NASA’S Muslim Outreach”

“NASA’S Muslim Outreach”

Your tax dollars at work

Dear Friends,

The RealClearPolitics commentary by Mona Charen below was part of the considerable blowback against the Obama administration after NASA administrator Charles Bolden said he was told by President Obama to make Muslim outreach the “perhaps foremost” plank of NASA’s mission.

The administration quickly backpedaled, with Press Secretary Robert Gibbs maintaining Bolden must have “misspoken.”

Who do YOU believe—Charles Bolden or Robert Gibbs?

*************************

NASA's Muslim Outreach
By Mona Charen

It's not really surprising that President Obama told NASA administrator Charles Bolden that his highest priority should be "to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering." It fits with so much that we already knew about the president.

It is consistent with his wildly exaggerated concept of governmental and presidential power and competence. Samuel Johnson wrote: "How small, of all that human hearts endure, that part which laws or kings can cause or cure." Obama believes the opposite -- that his presidency can be a transformative moment not just for the nation, but for the world. He will halt global warming and stop the rise of the oceans, transition America to a green energy future, prevent the "cycle of boom and bust" in the economy, provide universal health care while spending less than before, cushion "underwater" mortgage holders without rewarding profligate borrowers, increase taxes on the "rich" without harming the middle class, solve the problem of excessive public debt by amassing more public debt and so on.

How in the world would NASA help Muslim nations to "feel good" about themselves? Would NASA hold science fairs in Tripoli or Tehran? Produce and circulate propaganda films about Great Muslim Men (careful, never women) of Science? Stress our global debt to Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi, the father of algebra? (That's risky, since al-Khwarizmi reportedly learned his math from the Indians.) How would Obama's NASA chief undertake to alter the civilizational self-esteem of a billion people?

Of course, it's entirely possible (pace Bernard Lewis) that the Muslim world does not lack for self-esteem on the matter of science or anything else. Certainly, scientific know-how has not been lacking in nuclear-armed Pakistan or (would be) nuclear Iran. Besides, hasn't Obama heard? The whole self-esteem myth has been exploded. Though millions of tax dollars and God only knows how many wasted instructional hours have gone toward making American kids think they are really, really special, it turns out that there is zero correlation between such drilled self-esteem and academic performance. (See Scientific American, January 2005)

The Obama directive to NASA also revealed a mental tic common to liberals -- the tendency to universalize the African-American experience. Just as African-Americans were denied their rights and dignity, goes this reasoning, so today fill-in-the-blank are being persecuted or demeaned -- women, gays, Muslims, the handicapped, illegal immigrants, Palestinians, "people of color."

But this line of reasoning impedes rather than advances understanding. The African-American experience in America was actually very different from that of women, gays, the handicapped, illegal immigrants, or others here, to say nothing of the experience of Palestinians or "people of color" worldwide. Invoking the emotionally charged civil rights paradigm closes the door on nuance and context and encourages dogmatism.

To treat the Muslim world as a vast ocean of African-Americans in need of respect and encouragement from us is both arrogant and incredibly solipsistic. In fact, large swaths of the Muslim world feel inexpressibly superior to us -- particularly morally and spiritually. Until cold terror forced them to accept American servicemen on their soil, the Saudis kept "infidel" pollution to the barest minimum in the home of the prophet. That wasn't an expression of inferiority. Osama bin Laden boasted in 2000 that he had defeated the Soviet Empire and that it would be a small matter to defeat the American one. Again, he may have been deluded, but he was not a candidate for assertiveness training. Nearly every Muslim child is instructed that his is the true faith, superior in every way to the errors that came before: Judaism and Christianity, and infinitely above paganism or atheism. Jihadis are taught that their shining pure religion requires no less than the mass murder of infidels and unbelievers.

It might just be that Muslim self-confidence is more dangerous to us than imagined Muslim feelings of inadequacy. But in any case, solicitude about the feelings of individuals cannot comprise a foreign policy. Muslim nations, like other nations, are motivated by advantage and influenced by perceptions of strength and weakness. The president has absolutely no control over the way Muslims feel about themselves -- but he has every power over the way they perceive us.

Scurrilous Lies

Dear Friends,

Here is a letter to the editor that I sent to the San Jose Mercury this morning that I thought you might be interested in reading.

What you might not know about me is that I am a huge baseball fan - season tickets at Giants games for over 30 years (at Candlestick and now AT&T). When I was a very young child, there were no major league baseball teams on the West Coast. Because of Jackie Robinson, my first life hero, I became a Brooklyn Dodger fan. I took a strong interest in the plight of a young baseball player facing prejudice and true racism while simply trying to play baseball.

It is because of this background, I find it particularly insulting that the media would allow these false charges about the Tea Party Movement to stand without editorials defending the right of individuals to speak out - even if they do not agree with the message. The media must realize that the accusation of racism is a callous effort to undermine the voice of 60% of Americans (in latest ABC/Washington Post poll) who do not trust Barack Obama.

Richard

P.S. I did switch to being a Giants fan immediately in 1958 when they moved to San Franciso.

________________________________________
HERE IS MY LETTER TO THE EDITOR:


Dear Editor.

The accusations of racism in the Tea Party Movement by the NAACP and media editorials are nothing but scurrilous lies. What do the issues that the Tea Party Movement protests have to do with race? Absolutely nothing. As someone whose first life hero was Jackie Robinson, I have never heard or seen a racist comment or poster at a tea party event.

The Tea Party Movement opposes stimulus packages, bailouts, ObamaCare, government spending, high taxation, deficit spending, and a burgeoning national debt. What do any of these issues have to do with race or racism? The charge of racism in the Tea Party Movement is a fraud perpetrated by those who are using diversionary tactics to attempt to deflect attention away from the many failures of the Obama administration.

A TRUE Survivor

Last summer of 2009, Adolek Kohn, an 89-year-old Jewish survivor of Auschwitz returned to the death camp with his daughter and three grandchildren --- and he danced. And he didn't just dance, he had his daughter Jane Korman make a video of him dancing (with her and her three children) to the rousing tune of Gloria Gaynor's hit, 'I Will Survive'.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7PtrFJtseg&feature=related

Needless to say, this video has provoked anger from many who fear it trivializes the Final Solution. That is a valid fear, especially given the fact that the groups which released this video to the Net have turned out to be Neo-Nazis. (It's obvious their intent was to mock this terrible moment in history.)

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/07/15/survive-holocaust-survivors-dance-auschwitz-sparks-controversy/

However, I am siding with Mr. Kohn in this matter. Like him, I see his dance as a victory over the Holocaust. The Final Solution destroyed its victims in one of two ways - body and soul. Obviously Auschwitz did not destroy his body - but they would have succeeded in destroying his soul if they'd reduced him to a bitter old man, incapable of ever again taking pleasure in the scent of a flower, the touch of a loving person's hand -- or the sound of music. But that didn't happen. Instead, Mr. Kohn returned to the camp, to the ovens, the showers and the trains - to everything which tried to destroy him; and in front of each and every one of them, he danced.

As I see it, Mr. Kohn has triumphed. Since the greatest triumph of the human spirit is to be able to still experience joy, Mr. Kohn's dance proves he has truly done that. God bless him. L'Chaim.

Ground Zero Mosque Imam's mask of Inclusiveness continues to be pierced with the truth

“Ground Zero Mosque” imam refuses to sign “Freedom Pledge”

But you still have time to sign our petition


Dear Friends,

The “Ground Zero Mosque” imam’s mask of inclusiveness continues to be pierced with the truth.

Cooing the words of tolerance that have duped Mayor Bloomberg and so many other leaders in New York City is no substitute for action.

One would think an imam really committed to tolerance, peace and inclusiveness would have no qualms about signing a “Freedom Pledge,” which includes a pledge to oppose any form of sharia-sanctioned punishment against “apostates” of Islam (those who have left Islam).

As the revealing commentary below notes, the “Ground Zero Mosque” imam has refused to sign this pledge. Actions do indeed speak louder than words.

So far nearly 63,000 people have signed our petition opposing the ground zero mosque. If you haven’t yet done so, please take two minutes to add your name today.

Exclusive: Peace, Tolerance and Religious Freedom? No Way

Alyssa A. Lappen

Ground Zero mosque wanna-be developers show their true radical colors
http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.6726/pub_detail.asp

On October 20, 2009, American Society of Muslim Advancement (ASMA) leader Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan, both received a letter from Former Muslims United (FMU) requesting that they each sign the latter's Freedom Pledge. Neither has yet signed.

Rauf and Khan both claim to be moderate Muslims. Yet they are determined to rip down a 150-year-old wrought iron building --- less than 200 feet from Ground Zero --- where a piece of jumbo jet fell through its roof on 9/11 after Saudi suicide bombers flew two loaded passenger planes into each of the World Trade Center towers. The fuselage remains in the building to date. In its place, Rauf and Khan want to build a 13-story mosque.

The Cordoba Initiative, an ASMA subsidiary, claims the building will not be a mosque but a “cultural center” open to all. However, ASMA registered itself as a “church” with the Internal Revenue Service --- not a cultural institute open to all, according to Guidestar. The building will indeed be a mosque, and open to all only so as to “invite” non-Muslims to Islam. In Malaysia the title of Rauf's 2004 book What's Right With Islam, complete with its introduction from Muslim Brotherhood devotee Karen Armstrong, translates to “The Call from the WTC Rubble.” For decades, Rauf and Khan have operated entirely in sync with global Muslim Brotherhood “flexibility” guidelines, which in North America seek to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law.

Now there is new evidence that ASMA's purportedly “moderate” leaders do not support basic human rights for former Muslims: They failed to even acknowledge an October 20, 2009 invitation from Former Muslims United to sign its Freedom Pledge.

FMU initially sent the Freedom Pledge, fully named the “Muslim Pledge for Religious Freedom and Safety from Harm for Former Muslims,” to 59 major Muslim leaders at 24 Muslim organizations in time for them to have it on September 25, 2009 --- the day on which, 220 years earlier, the U.S. Congress passed the Bill of Rights. The letters to Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan were sent in a second Oct. 20, 2009 round of invitations that went to 51 Muslim leaders at 26 more organizations, including ASMA, which houses the Cordoba Initiative.

In their request that Muslim leaders sign the Freedom Pledge, FMU executive director Nonie Darwish, and her colleagues Ibn Warraq, Mohammed Asghar, Wafa Sultan, and Amil Imani wrote

“we now pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to achieve for former Muslims their unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We claim these rights as the foundation for our right to freedom from Shariah. We urge you to join us.”

The 878- word Freedom Pledge itself outlines the principles of Islamic law under which apostates from Islam are subject to the death penalty. It notes that the four schools of Sunni Islam --- Hanafi, Miliki, Shafi'i and Hanbali --- “unanimously agree that a former Muslim male, also known as an apostate, must be executed” and that a woman, at best must be “imprisoned or beaten five times a day until she repents or dies” and at worst, like men executed outright. It then goes on to cite 1978 and 1989 religious rulings --- from the Fatwa Council at Al Azhar University, the closest Muslim equivalent to the Vatican, and the Mufti of Lebanon, each, respectively consigning a renegade Muslim to death if they “do not repent.” Perhaps “a misunderstanding on his part may have taken place, and there would thus be an opportunity to rectify it,” intones the Mufti. But he must do so within three days, or die.

“Overwhelmingly, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan ... do not honor freedom to choose one’s beliefs as guaranteed under our [U.S.] First Amendment,” said Nonie Darwish in response to their dead silence since October 20, 2009. “That is the only conclusion we can draw” by their failure to acknowledge or sign the Freedom Pledge.

Rauf and Khan nevertheless hope to convince Americans that they think exactly the opposite. On July 6, 2010 at the Chautauqua Institute in New York state, Khan said

“The Quran speaks of humankind as one nation under God. We find that in America,.... The Quran speaks of one creator and the founding document says that everyone is endowed by the creator with inalienable rights.”

During the question and answer period that followed, an audience member asked Khan if the proposed Cordoba House mosque 200 feet from Ground Zero could be seen as a victory for Muslim radicals infiltrating America. She replied,

“It is a defeat to the extremists, ... because Cordoba House will celebrate the very ideology that the extremists detest, which is the ideology of inclusiveness, pluralism, and coexistence between faiths.”

Khan referred there specifically to Quran Chapter 3, verse 109, which states,

“To God belongs all that is in the heavens and in the earth, and unto Him all matters are returned.”

However, she deceptively omits the critical following verse, 3:110, clearly stating that Muslims alone --- not other human beings --- are acceptable to Allah.

“You are the best nation ever brought forth to men, bidding to honor, and forbidding dishonor, and believing in God. Had the People of the Book believed, it were better for them; some of them are believers, but the most of them are ungodly.”

The point is reiterated, moreover, in the Tafsir (commentary) on the verse by al-Jalalayn:

“You, O community of Muhammad (s), are the best community brought forth, manifested, to men, according to God’s knowledge, enjoining decency, and forbidding indecency, and believing in God. Had the People of the Scripture believed, it, their belief, would have been better for them; some of them are believers, such as ‘Abd Allah b. Salam, may God be pleased with him and his companions; but most of them, the disbelievers, are wicked.”

The Quran expresses the same revulsion for non-Muslim “disbelievers” in Chapter 98, verse 6:

“The unbelievers of the People of the Book and the idolaters shall be in the Fire of Gehenna, therein dwelling forever; those are the worst of creatures.”

The al-Jalalayn Tafsir on this verse is equally adamant about the evils of unbelievers:

“Truly the disbelievers from among the People of the Scripture and the idolaters shall be in the fire of Hell, to abide therein (khalidina: an implied circumstantial qualifier, in other words, it will be decreed for them by God, exalted be He, to abide therein) — those are the worst of creatures.”

This is not the stuff of sweetness, love and light. Rather, it reflects Rauf's genuine feelings, as he has more than once expressed in Arabic. Clearly, Rauf himself reveres sharia law and wants to impose it. On Dec. 9, 2007, Rauf told the popular Arabic newspaper Hadi el-Islam,

“Throughout my discussions with contemporary Muslim theologians, it is clear an Islamic state can be established in more than just a single form or mold. It can be established through a kingdom or a democracy. The important issue is to establish the general fundamentals of Sharia that are required to govern.

“In the period after the Prophet, peace be upon him, new laws were permitted so long of course as these laws do not contradict the Quran or the Deeds of Muhammad... so they create institutions that assure [that there are] no conflicts with sharia.

“We recommend that in the case of a breakdown in the relationship between state and religious institutions ... that the people follow the method of giving peaceful advice to governors and state institutions and use peaceful means [to convert them].

“And also [to] suggest that the rulers and political bodies consult with religious bodies and religious figures ... so that [political] decisions reflect the spirit of the [sharia] law.

In March 2010, he even denounced interfaith discussions. The article in another popular Arabic journal, Rights4All, was entitled “The Most Prominent Imam in New York: ‘I Do Not Believe in Religious Dialogue’,” according to former Muslim and native Arabic speaker Walid Shoebat. In it, Rauf spoke against both “religious dialogue” and “interweaving into the mainstream society.”

“This phrase is inaccurate. Religious dialogue as customarily understood is a set of events with discussions in large hotels that result in nothing. Religions do not dialogue and dialogue is not present in the attitudes of the followers, regardless of being Muslim or Christian.”

Given these sentiments, it is no wonder whatever that neither Rauf nor his wife Daisy Khan would sign the FMU Freedom Pledge, promising to

“renounce, repudiate and oppose any physical intimidation, or worldly and corporal punishment, of apostates from Islam, in whatever way that punishment may be determined or carried out by myself or any other Muslim including the family of the apostate, community, Mosque leaders, Shariah court or judge, and Muslim government or regime.”

In fact, only two of the 111 Muslim leaders in 50 U.S. Muslim organizations to whom FMU sent the Freedom Pledge actually signed it. Those two heroes are Zuhdi Jasser (American Islamic Forum for Democracy) and Dr. Ali Alyami (Center for Democracy and Human Rights in Saudi Arabia).

The sad facts are these:

The results of the FMU Freedom Pledge --- to date sent to 163 American Muslim leaders at 50 organizations --- show that less than 1.3% of American Muslim leaders are actually moderate.

Neither Feisal Abdul Rauf nor Daisy Khan fall into that moderate category --- despite their massive efforts to pull the wool over public and political eyes. Their silence concerning human rights for former Muslims proves it, although certainly, so do many of their other actions, not least their long history of subterfuge concerning their real intentions.

At Chautauqua on July 6, Daisy Khan should have told the truth: Yes, allowing a mosque to go up in place of an historic building at Ground Zero would be a triumph for extremist Muslims. Moreover, ASMA and the Cordoba Institute are among the heavy weight extremists leading that charge.

ISLAM RISING: Geert Wilders’ Warning to the West

Geert Wilders lives with a constant death threat over his head. Al-Qaeda has vowed to kill him. As a Dutch parliamentarian and outspoken critic of radical Islam, Mr. Wilders must travel with four bodyguards and sleep in a safe house, each and every night.

His short documentary film, Fitna (included in this DVD) set off a firestorm in the Middle East and Western Europe immediately upon its release. The controversial film showed how Islamic terrorists are following the literal dictations of the Quran.

That message can be seen here in this DVD, with striking clarity in film, photographs and a special message from Geert Wilders himself, who came to America with an urgent and terrifying warning: “Islam is on the verge of conquering the West.”

*Also on the same page, we are offering a special including both Islam Rising and Atomic Jihad together for one low price.

A Government Against Its People

A Government Against Its People



Over the past several weeks, Americans have witnessed the most overt racism to date on the part of the Federal Government under Barack Obama. Racists New Black Panther thugs have been exposed for what they really are, and the Eric Holder Justice Department, with the approval of Barack Obama, has made it clear that such racism from blacks will be excused.

I am a black who came of age in the waning days of legalized segregation in the South. Occurrences of racism (black and white) are not new to me. The phenomenon itself is a human thing; it comes in all stripes. But what gravely irritates me is how today’s crop of leaders and elites respond to the scourge of racism.

Radio and talk show host Glen Beck, not someone of whom I am particularly fond, at least chronicles rabid racist behavior all around. He has begun a discussion on his television show. Beck, however, when reporting the racist rants of the New Black Panthers, goes tepid. I sense that because he is white, he thinks that he must tread lightly when discussing blacks. He was quick to call Mel Gibson, the white movie actor, a few choice derogatory names for Gibson’s latest racial rant. But the more detrimental racism of the Panthers (scaring folks away from voting places) was handled forcefully, yes, but without the derogatory names.

Even Rush Limbaugh, though not as much as Beck, tends to hold back when it comes to blacks. Recently on his radio show, he allowed a black woman to berate him mercilessly about his so-called “attacks” on Barack Obama. Yes, I can usually detect a black person’s voice if that person is not affecting speech other the dialect I grew up hearing as a child. Her slavish obeisance to Obama was also a give-away.

That hesitancy on Limbaugh’s part was not there when he encountered a Hispanic caller with a different take than his own on the Arizona illegal immigration law. He told his call-screener to stop sending him stupid calls. I frankly thought the Hispanic guy had a better argument than the black woman.

The problem with this tepidness regarding race from the media talking heads and the elite political classes in general is that everyday Americans are tired of it (I include myself in that group). This capitulation to bad-acting blacks is setting the stage for serious violence. Because Beck and company can’t bring themselves to confront more harshly behavior that threatens white people’s lives doesn’t mean that Aryan Nations won’t. And what better reason do neo-Nazis have than the fact that the Government in Washington has sided with racist blacks? A government that should be fighting racism from all quarters has chosen to take sides. If that fact doesn’t drive people into a posture of self-preservation, I ask what will? And trust me, I don’t think the Nations need much prodding.

The other sad result of Obama’s racist tactics is that everyday, decent Americans are being driven to hate their government and the people who look like the man who heads it. Those everyday, decent Americans will not sit quietly forever. And it will not matter one iota if the elites, the talking heads, and the political classes are screaming—a la Rodney King—for a one-sided “civility.” Moreover, blacks will bear the brunt of the turmoil. Some responsible body in Washington had better heed the warning before it is too late.

Vain and Aspiring Men

What is negrophilia and why does it matter?

What is negrophilia and why does it matter?



I recently finished reading the book Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal-- America ’s Racial Obsession, by Erik Rush, a black American author. I thought it worth sharing what this term means in the context of what is happening in America . The information in Rush’s book needs to be disseminated throughout the country if we are to survive Barack Hussein Obama.



If I may paraphrase, the condition of negrophilia, spawned from political correctness (PC), is the irrational state of refusing to see evil in some blacks and attributing to all blacks a mythical “holiness.” Sort of a twisted reasoning that blacks can do no wrong because they have suffered so much. Never mind that other races and groups have suffered as much or more, whites (even the sane ones) have been so indoctrinated through PC that they can’t see the idiocy in this thinking. That is deadly.



Consider these examples.



Obama has tried as best he can to put obstacles in the way of efforts to protect the Gulf coastline from the oil spill. He literally denied state officials the resources that they needed and requested. Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana went around him. Equipment is now being employed to dredge the oil away from the shore. Obama (through the Coast Guard) recently stopped the dredging. The excuse is that moving the sand harms the environment. The oil, of course, will do more damage to the environment and the economies of the states affected.



Why then would conservative leaders, such as Newt Gingrich, still be attributing the abysmal responses on Obama’s part to “incompetence?” Any right-minded person can see that these actions are by design. They are to destroy the oil industry and eventually the nation. Why can’t a man as intelligent as Gingrich grasp this fact? I think negrophilia fits here. Gingrich can’t bring himself to admit that Obama is an evil, disturbed man, because Obama is half-black.



Obama and his sycophants posed a six-month drilling moratorium until they can determine how to prevent another spill of this magnitude. Newsflash: As long as humans run an endeavor, there will always be accidents and mishaps. The evil in this move is glaring. Thousands of Americans will lose their jobs. If they do receive the shakedown money stolen from British Petroleum (BP), what are they to do after six months? The jobs won’t be there; they will go to foreign countries. These people are self-sufficient workers; welfare does not work for them. Why won’t the Republican conservative leadership get behind the people taking legal action against Obama on this issue? Why aren’t they announcing broadly that the behavior is not against BP but against average Americans? What besides a disorder such as negrophilia can possibly account for this craven weakness in the opponents of Barack Obama?



Governor Jan Brewer and the citizens of Arizona decided that they would take action to protect themselves against the incursion of illegal aliens. Attorney General Eric Holder and Obama (both black men) immediately attacked their actions, without first having read the law that Arizona citizens proposed. Why was there such a tepid response from Republican leaders on this behavior? As an American, it shamed me that there was not more damaging outcry from so-called leaders.



Further, why is there not an actionable response to Obama’s disrespectful treatment of Governor Brewer? He simply ignored her as she pleaded for assistance. What white President could get away with that kind of crap? Not one. Yet the fear of Obama’s blackness, the disorder of negrophilia in play, ensured that the airwaves would be silent of people who could actually do something about the behavior: political leaders. I am livid witnessing the degree of spinelessness in face of such unprecedented lawlessness from Obama. It’s enough to make a sane person do something drastic—like join a militia.



And more, a general and his staff have made statements that reflect their true disgust toward a weak, pansy of a Commander-in-Chief, who despises them all. Obama has done more to cripple the American military than any enemy past or present could ever have hoped to accomplish. He is set on corrupting unit cohesion with open homosexual behavior in the ranks; he shows disdain for the fighting forces by rubbing his affinity for Muslims in their face, when Muslim Islamists are the very people they are fighting; and he despises the Judeo-Christian faith to which the majority of the soldiers adhere. That all Americans who oppose this miscreant Barack Obama are not standing before the White House gates with pitchforks and flaming torches (or the 21st Century equivalents) is a sickening travesty. How much more will Americans allow this despicable person to do before they get in his face and say “No More!”?



Sadly, the only outcome that I can foresee (barring a real game changer at the polls in November 2010) is that the vast majority of Americans—the non-elites, the non-talking heads, and particularly, those who are not afflicted with negrophilia—will revolt. Whichever side wins that confrontation, Americans or Obama and the Left, will face the task of rebuilding the nation, either in the image that the Founders relying on Judeo-Christian principles intended or the image that Obama and the Left intend. If the Left wins, there will be no America , as we once knew it.

A Muslim Speaks Out Against the “Ground Zero Mosque”


There’s still time to sign our petition opposing the “Ground Zero Mosque”


On May 24th, the New York Post published an important op-ed written by our friend and colleague, Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.

You can read Dr. Jasser’s op-ed here. Following is a short excerpt.


I am an American Muslim dedicated to defeating the ideology that fuels global lslamist terror -- political Islam. And I don't see such a "center" actually fighting terrorism or being a very "positive" addition near Ground Zero, no matter how well intentioned.

To put it bluntly, Ground Zero is the one place in America where Muslims should think less about teaching Islam and "our good side" and more about being American and fulfilling our responsibilities to confront the ideology of our enemies.



How we wish that the White House, Congress, and our law enforcement and intelligence communities would reach out more to Muslims like Zuhdi Jasser, instead of legitimizing Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations that were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial.

Organizations like ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and CAIR (Council on American Islamic-Relations).

If you haven’t yet signed our petition opposing the “Ground Zero Mosque,” will you take 60 seconds and join the over 52,000 who have signed it thus far?

Thank you!

COMMIE WATCH, UPDATED

June 23 2010

Commie Watch, Updated
Randall Hoven

A few words from comrade Sam Webb, Chair of the Communist Party USA, as spoken at the CPUSA's 29th National Convention June 3, 2010.


"What a difference between now and five years ago when we convened in Chicago! At that time, a Puerto Rican woman raised in the South Bronx didn't sit on the Supreme Court. Then the president didn't call for the abolition of nuclear weapons. Millions had no health care... Global warming wasn't on the White House agenda... And, an African American wasn't president. Now an African American is president, and much else has changed as we convene our 29th convention...


"[T]he long night of rule by the most reactionary groups on the political spectrum has ended...we contributed to the historic victory in 2008...


"In hindsight, I overstated the nature of the election victory... A decisive defeat of the right - signified by larger Democratic majorities... will profoundly alter the political landscape...


"Others (teabaggers and all) are captured by lies, half-truths, and hate-filled rhetoric steeped in a subtext of racism...THIS IS A TOTAL LIE!, THESE TACTICS, ARE IN FACT, THOSE OF THE COMMUNISTS AND THEIR USEFUL IDIOT AMERICAN LEFTISTS!!!


"Arizona's draconian and unconstitutional immigration law...Florida's governor [Charlie Crist] vetoed a rightwing-inspired overhaul of public education... The campaign for jobs and against Wall St. initiated by the AFL-CIO... The near-victories by Rick Nagin and Rudy Lozano in recent election campaigns are a sign of the times...


"You could easily say there was one mood before the health care bill passed and another mood afterwards. In fact, viewing the struggle through a dialectical lens, the bill's passage was not only a victory on its own terms, but it also changed the larger political dynamics of Washington and the country in a positive way...


"Yes we can!...


"For more than a year, the main issue that captured our energy and the energy of millions of others was health care reform. With the signing of a health care bill, our attention is shifting to job creation... It is urgent to win immediate legislative battles - unemployment compensation, the Harkin education jobs bill, the Miller Local Jobs for America bill, the Murray bill to help veterans find jobs, etc....


"The other key arena is the Congressional elections this fall... It's pretty clear that if the Democrats lose their majorities in Congress both the president and the broader people's coalition will be weakened...


Only an incredible grassroots effort... will turn back rightwing extremism and increase the Democratic majority in both chambers in Congress. Any less than that is playing with fire... We will join with the broader movement, including new formations like Organizing for America and MoveOn...


"I would argue that a relationship to the Democratic Party at this stage of struggle is a strategic necessity and later on probably a tactical requirement... In 2008, there was no other way to defeat the right without such a relationship. The same could be said about the health care struggle...


"[T]he Republican Party, which has turned into an instrument of unabashed racism - not to mention militarist, obstructionist, anti-working class, anti-immigrant, anti-women, homophobic, anti-democratic, anti-scientific, and so forth...


"Let's be blunt: there is no progressive alternative [to President Obama]. If the president loses in 2012, we will lose too, and the country will once again be in the hands of rightwing extremism. There is no option to the left of President Obama...


"In my view, President Obama is a reformer... whose agenda creates space for the broader people's movement to deepen and extend the reform process in a non-revolutionary period...


"When our movement is on the level of the popular upsurge of the 1930s and 1960s, we will be in a better position to say if his views are elastic enough to accommodate more deep-going change, as Roosevelt and Johnson did..."


Just to recap, the Communist Party USA is in favor of

•President Obama, his win in 2008 (which the CPUSA takes some credit for) and his reelection in 2012.
•A Democrat majority in both houses of Congress.
•Charlie Crist, the AFL-CIO, Rick Nagin, Rudy Lozano, Organizing for America and MoveOn.
•ObamaCare, unemployment compensation, the Harkin education jobs bill, the Miller Local Jobs for America bill, the Murray bill.
•FDR and LBJ.



On the other hand, the CPUSA is against

•The Republican Party.
•The Tea Party movement.
•Arizona's immigration law.
•And, of course, free markets and limited government.


I know; it is so gauche to say "communist." But it is just kind of tough to report on the Communist Party USA without using that word. Please forgive my social awkwardness.

A Multitude of fools

This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

Act for America Cable television wired into 40 Million Households

What is Sen. Barbara Boxer’s top concern for our troops?

Your contribution will help us broadcast stunning information like this!


Dear Friends,

The date is October 3, 2010. Cable television systems wired into 40 million households are airing a new 30 minute news and talk show hosted by Brigitte Gabriel, President of ACT! for America, and co-hosted by Guy Rodgers ACT! for America’s Executive Director.

The program is also viewed on the web by countless people across the world.

A segment on the program unfolds like this.

Brigitte Gabriel:

“Last July, a conference entitled the Fall of Capitalism, Rise of Islam, was conducted in a suburb of Chicago. The sponsor, Hizb ut-Tahrir, is an organization that has been banned as a terrorist organization in most Arab countries—but not here in the U.S. Here’s a short clip the organization posted online to advertise the conference…”





“Think of it. In the heartland of America, a terrorist organization hosted a conference proclaiming the imminent fall of capitalism, the rise of Islam, and the establishment of a worldwide caliphate governed by Islamic sharia law.”

Guy Rodgers:

“Brigitte, I want to share with our viewers how completely out of touch with reality some of our politicians are. While organizations like Hizb ut-Tahrir are recruiting Muslim boys and teens for jihad and holding conferences like this, and our soldiers and citizens are at risk due to increased Islamic terrorism, here’s what Senator Barbara Boxer had to say is the greatest threat to our military. You really have to see this to believe it.”






-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is just a sample of the kind of programming that will be available to viewers across America, and even the world via the web, if we are able to raise the money to produce 26 one-half news and talk programs on cable TV.

As we noted last week, the air time, worth $300,000, has already been donated to ACT! for America. All we have to do is the raise the money for production.

If you have already made a one-time or monthly contribution toward this historic opportunity, we thank you!

If you haven’t, all you have to do is click here to become a Patriot Partner making a monthly gift or be a Contributing Member making a one-time gift.

If you prefer to mail a check, please click here to print out a reply form.

The early response to our “Media Month” appeal has been very, very encouraging! It looks like many ACT! for America members recognize what an historic opportunity this is.

Later this week we’ll provide you a progress report to let you know how close we are to reaching our goal.

No other organization like ours will have its own television program, broadcasting the unfiltered and unvarnished truth about the threat of radical Islam and global jihad.

This is your opportunity to strike a blow for truth and against the politically correct media!

So please, if you haven’t already done so, take action today!

DHIMMI DUMMY OF THE DAY AWARD - ORGANIZATION: PAYPAL

PayPal



Last week, PayPal stripped Pamela Geller's site - 'Atlas Shrugs' - of access to her PayPal account. Reason? They accused her of becoming a 'hate site'.

http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/paypal-relents-and-apologizes-to-pamela-geller/?singlepage=true

Turns out Geller had angered PayPal by running a series of ads on the sides of buses offering help for Muslims wishing to leave the faith. In revenge, PayPal accused her of 'promoting hate' and blocked her account. PayPal, however, did not block another account - Revolution Muslim which "recently called for the murder of South Park creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone for depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit". In addition, PayPal still has no problem allowing itself to be used on eBay to purchase "DVDs of Imam Anwar al Awlaki, a jihadist cleric who has been linked to Major Nidal Hasan, the alleged Ft. Hood shooter".

After a firestorm of protest, PayPal backtracked and restored Geller's account. But the damage has been done. Geller has now switched her account to a brand new site - 'GPal'.

https://www.gpal.net/

And so the struggle for truth and justice goes on. As the above information makes clear, however, PayPal is fighting that struggle with all its economic might.

Ground Zero Mosque and Petition

Please CLICK HERE to see several videos on the planned "Ground Zero" mosque.

After you've listened to the videos please CLICK HERE to sign the petition to Stop this kick in the teeth to the over 3,000 innocent people killed by the Islamic terrorists.

We are opposed to the grotesque symbolism represented by the building of this mosque at "ground zero." We are especially appalled that those pushing for this mosque have designated its grand opening date for September 11, 2011 – the ten year anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history.

We are deeply disturbed by the insensitivity to the families of the victims of the 9/11 jihadist attack exhibited by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his supporters. We find it grossly hypocritical that Islamists and their allies repeatedly lecture Americans about the need to be "sensitive" to Muslims while Imam Rauf and his allies practice the height of intolerance and insensitivity through the blatant act of building a mosque at "ground zero."

We are offended by the views Imam Rauf has expressed about 9/11, such as his conspiratorial theory that Muslims did not perpetrate the 9/11 attack and that America's policies were partly to blame for the attack. Such views are a slap in the face of the victims and families of 9/11.

We find it repulsive that Imam Rauf and his followers and supporters would seek to build a mosque near ground zero promoting the same Sharia ideology that the 9/11 hijackers used as the justification for their act of unconscionable murder.

The Myth of Islamophobia

Pat Condell replies to the Myth of Islamophobia:

GO MICHIGAN STATE!

Very interesting -- the University is standing by their professor and not bowing down to special interest groups!

Professor Wichman E-mail

Claim: A Michigan professor sent an e-mail telling Muslim students to leave the country.

Status: True.

The story begins at Michigan State University with a mechanical engineering professor named Indred Wichman.



Wichman sent an e-mail to the Muslim Student's Association.

The e-mail was in response to the students' protest of the Danish cartoons that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist.

The group had complained the cartoons were 'hate speech.'

============

Enter Professor Wichman.

==========================================

In his e-mail, he said the following:

===============================

Dear Muslim Association,

As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest.

I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called 'whores' in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France.

This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Muslims to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile 'protests.'

If you do not like the values of the West - see the First Amendment - you are free to leave. I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option.

Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.

Cordially,

I. S. Wichman

Professor of Mechanical Engineering

=============================

As you can imagine,

The Muslim group at the university didn't like this too well.

They're demanding that Wichman be reprimanded, that the university impose mandatory diversity training for faculty,

And mandate a seminar on hate and discrimination for all freshmen.

Now, the local chapter of CAIR has jumped into the fray.

CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, apparently doesn't believe that the good professor

Had the right to express his opinion.

==========

For its part, the university is standing its ground in support of Professor Wichman,

Saying the e-mail was private, and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks.

============================================================

Send this to your friends, and ask them to do the same.

Tell them to keep passing it around until the whole country gets it.

We are in a war.

This political correctness crap is getting old and killing us.

==================






GO, MICHIGAN STATE!



FURTHER.....CONSIDER THE AUDACITY OF NEW YORK ALLOWING [CONSISTING OF A SMALL/SELECTIVE COMMITTEE] A MOSQUE TO BE BUILT CLOSE TO THE TWIN TOWERS BROUGHT DOWN BY MUSLIMS WHO FOLLOWED THE TEACHINGS OF THE KORAN--WHY ISN'T THAT COVERT DECISION PUT TO A VOTE OF THE PUBLIC???--ONE GUESS THAT COUNTS].



BUILDING THE MOSQUE IS SIMPLY A........."GOOD GESTURE" SO THEY "OVERTLY SAY", WHILE COVERTLY, AND SLOWLY WINNING THE ON-GOING SILENT WAR--NOTE: THE SILENT WAR CONTINUES WITH THEIR LIES, BID FOR SYMPATHY, USING OUR LAWS FOR THEIR BENEFIT; AND THE BUILDING OF ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND ORTHODOXY MUSLIM ORGANIZATIONS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES SUCH AS CAIR.



THE MOSQUE THAT THEY WANT TO BUILD IN NEW YORK WAS SUGGESTED BY A MUSLIM MAN WHO WANTS "SHARIA LAW" IMPLEMENTED WITHIN THE UNITED STATES....NO, NO, NO--WE ARE STILL AT WAR WITH "ISLAM". THEIR "WRITINGS & INTENTS" WRITTEN WITHIN THE KORAN, AND PREACHED IN THEIR MOSQUES IN AMERICA CONTINUED TO BE A MAJOR PROBLEM, FROM WITHIN.



THEY CLAIM TO BE "PEACE LOVING PEOPLE." BELIEVE THAT, AT OUR OWN PERIL. THEY ARE ONLY PEACEFUL UNTIL THEY GET A FOOT HOLD [NOTE WHAT'S TAKING PLACE AROUND THE WORLD IN THE NAME OF ISLAM, AND LEARN.] THE FOOT HOLD, IN AMERICA, HAS BEEN TAKING PLACE FOR YEARS AND ALLOWED BY WIMPS [SO CALLED LEADERS] WITHIN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY--BY THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE A SENSE, OR UNDERSTANDING OF HISTORY, AND REFUSE TO TAKE NOTE OF WHAT'S HAPPENING AROUND THE WORLD IN THE NAME OF ISLAM. WE, AMERICANS, AND ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANS ARE CONSIDERED "INFIDELS" AND WORTHY OF NO LESS THEN DEATH--THAT COMES FROM THEIR PEACEFUL THEOLOGICAL TEACHINGS WITHIN THE KORAN!!! [THAT FACT CAN NOT BE STATED ENOUGH, AND NEEDS TOTAL CLARIFICATION FROM 'ALL MUSLIM'S AND MOSQUE-GOING-PEOPLE...] THAT CAN ONLY BE INTERPRETED ONE WAY! [WHAT PART OF "ONE WAY" DON'T THOSE IN LEADERSHIP UNDERSTAND???]



WAKE UP AMERICA: THOSE PEOPLE WHO ATTEND THE MOSQUES AND GET THEIR THEOLOGY FROM THE KORAN ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBOR UNLESS THEY HAVE ABANDONED THE KORANIAN WAY OF THINKING...IF NOT, THEY ARE YOUR ENEMY AWAITING THE OPPORTUNITY TO OVERTHROW YOUR RELIGION, YOUR GOVERNMENT, AND THE INFIDEL, YOU!



OUR WHITE HOUSE, MOST OF THE MEDIA, AND 'HOLLOW-WOOD COHORTS' ARE FULL OF PASSIVE NON-AGGRESSIVE PERSONALITIES. THEY ARE ALLOWING SUCH COVERT/OVERT OPERATIONS TO TAKE PLACE; THUS, DISRESPECTING OUR COUNTRY, OUR CONSTITUTION, AND OUR LIBERTY. IF WE DON'T RISE UP, AND USE EVERY MEANS POSSIBLE TO PROCLAIM TRUTH, AND THE AMERICAN WAY.... WE WILL BE AS REGAN ONCE SAID: "...A NATION GONE UNDER.



THE INTERNET, TALK RADIO, TEA PARTIES, AND PART OF FOX NEWS, SEEM TO BE THE ONLY VENUES TO GET OUR MESSAGE OUT. THAT IS, TO INFORM THE PUBLIC RELATIVE TO WHAT IS TAKING PLACE AND AT AN ALARMING PACE. AS CHRISTIANS WE KNOW THAT JEHOVAH GOD [THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB/ISRAEL] IS IN CONTROL, AND WILL BRING ALL OF WHAT IS TAKING PLACE INTO JUDGMENT. NONETHELESS, HE EXPECTS US, AS CHRISTIANS/AMERICANS TO STAND UP AND SPEAK OUT WITHOUT FEAR AND INTIMIDATION. FINALLY, WE NEED TO PRAY FOR LEADERSHIP FOR AMERICA--WE ARE IN A PERIOD OF TIME WHEN OUR LEADERS ARE CALLING EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL...TURNING OUR BACKS ON ISRAEL IS A MISTAKE THAT HAS SEVERE CONSEQUENCES...PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM...



INDEED, CONGRATULATIONS TO MR. WICHMAN; ESPECIALLY FOR POINTING OUT THE FACTS ABOUT THEIR "PEACEFUL RELIGION", AND TO MICHIGAN STATE FOR SUPPORTING HIM....HOPEFULLY IT'S A BEGINNING, AND NOT JUST AN ISOLATED INCIDENT... FOR SURE, WE CANNOT COUNT ON THE GOVERNMENT CURRENTLY IN OFFICE, THE MAIN MEDIA, AND THE BROTHERHOOD OF ISLAM--THE ENEMY FROM WITHIN.

More Obama Corruption, Lies and Incompetence

The Washington Examiner strikes again! This one's a mess!!!


This is incredible! Please read it and check it out yourself.







Subject: MUST READ !!!!!! CHRYSLER RAILROAD STORY!!!! Our Gov't A Legacy of Corruption


Chrysler Railroad story

Sooner or later it will all come to light!

This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon's Watergate or Clinton 's Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the Chrysler Corporation were to be closed?

Roll the clock back to the weeks just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler, like GM, was in dire financial straits and federal government "graciously" offered to "buy the company" and keep them out of bankruptcy and "save jobs."

Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration, "Too big to fail," same story with GM.

The feds organized their "Automotive Task Force" to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House's official Car Czar -
literally, that's what his title is.

Rattner is the liaison between Obama, Chrysler, and GM.

Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler 'had made this list of dealerships'. Not true!

The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox News and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the "Automotive Task Force" headed by no one other than Mr. Steve
Rattner.

Now the plot thickens.

Remember earlier we said that there was neither rhyme nor reason why certain dealerships were closed?

Actually there's a very interesting pattern as to who was closed down.
Again, on May 27, 2009, The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection.

Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government, 788 had donated money, exclusively to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to Democratic political causes. The only "Democratic" dealership on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary's campaign, and a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly, also gave $200.00 to Obama's campaign.

Does that seem a little odd to you?

Steve Rattner is the guy who put the list together. Well, he happens to be married to a Maureen White. Maureen happens to be the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As
such, she has access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation- Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky
"coincidence," we're certain.

Then comes another really wacky "coincidence."

On that list of dealerships being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas , North Louisiana, and Southern Missouri . It seems that Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns
a chain of dealership in that region, partnered with a fellow by the name of Robert Johnson.

Johnson happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge Obama supporter and financier.

These guys own a half dozen Chrysler stores under the company title of RLJ-McClarty-Landers. Interestingly, none of their dealerships were
ordered closed - not one!

While all of their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were!

Eight dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson were ordered shut down. Thus by pure luck, these two major Obama supporters now have virtual monopoly on Chrysler sales in their zone.

Isn't that amazing?

Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story's there, and it's in a dozen or so other web-based news organizations; this isn't being made up.


Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are mistaken. Under the federal court ruling, 65% of Chrysler is now owned by the federal government and the United Auto Workers union!

Fiat owns 20%.

The other 15% is still privately owned and presumably will be traded on the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn't want to run the
auto industry.

As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be the United States of America , it would appear that the president has the power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of
100,000 jobs just because they don't agree with his political agenda.


There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but the "Automotive Task Force" has released no information to the public or to any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done.

Keep your ear to the ground for more on this story. If you've ever wanted to make a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your national senator or representative in the House and
demand an investigation into this.

Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, "All that's necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

Car Czar No More

An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama's Car Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by former steel workers union boss Ron Bloom.
According to CBS News, Rattner left "to return to private life and spend time with his family."

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said, "I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future."

By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York ....

Uh-oh!

But, we're certain that had nothing to do with his resignation.

And, according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he's being investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again,
that couldn't have anything to with his resignation-that's ridiculous!
Like CBS said, this guy just wants to "spend more quality time with his family."

Obama has 32 personally appointed "czars" who answer to no one but him, all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority.

But hey, we're sure they all have "unique skills,"......as Tim Geithner likes to say!

SOOOOO.HOWS THE CHANGE WORKING FOR YOU?..

This goes beyond corruption in high places - to gross criminal actions on the part of our government! I hope you will spread this far and wide, and hopefully the taxpaying public will demand some of that
transparency we were promised......followed by criminal prosecution of the perpetrators!

What a crooked government, we have!!!!! Vote 'em all out...November, 2010!

JOBS REPORT A NIGHTMARE FOR OBAMA: More Lies and Incompetence!

Washington Post

Jobs report a nightmare for Obama progressivism


By George F. Will
Thursday, June 10, 2010

Concerning the job numbers from May, one can almost echo Henry James's exclamation after examining letters pertaining to Lord Byron's incest: "Nauseating perhaps, but how quite inexpressibly significant." Except that the May numbers' significance can be expressed: A theory is being nibbled to death by facts.

Private-sector job creation almost stopped in May. The 41,000 jobs created were dwarfed by the 411,000 temporary and low-wage government jobs needed to administer the census. Last year's stimulus having failed to hold unemployment below 8 percent as predicted, Barack Obama might advocate another stimulus -- amending Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution, which mandates a census every 10 years. If it were every year, he could take credit for creating 564,000 -- the current number of census takers -- permanent jobs.

May's 41,000 jobs were one-fifth of the April number and substantially fewer than half the number needed to keep pace with the normal growth of the labor force. This is evidence against the theory that a growing government can be counted on to produce prosperity because a government dollar spent has a reliable multiplier effect as it ripples through the economy from which the government took the dollar.

Today's evidence suggesting sluggish job creation might give pause to a less confident person than Obama. But pauses are not in his repertoire of governance. Instead, yielding to what must be a metabolic urge toward statism, he says the Gulf of Mexico oil spill is yet another reason for yet another explosion of government's control of economic life. The spill supposedly makes it urgent to adopt a large tax increase in the form of cap-and-trade energy legislation, which also is climate legislation, the primary purpose of which is, or once was, to combat global warming, such as it is.

At any time, some economic conditions would be better than others, but the more certainty about conditions the better. Today investors and employers are certain that uncertainties are multiplying.

They are uncertain about when interest rates will rise, and by how much. They do not know how badly the economy will be burdened by the expiration, approximately 200 days from now, of the Bush tax cuts for high earners -- a.k.a. investors and employers. They know the costs of Obamacare will be higher than was advertised, but not how much higher. They do not know the potential costs of cap-and-trade and other energy policies. They do not know whether "card check" -- abolition of the right of secret-ballot elections in unionization decisions -- will pass, or how much the economy will be injured by making unions more muscular. They do not know how the functioning of the financial sector will be altered and impeded by the many new regulatory rules and agencies created by the financial reform legislation. The economy has become dependent on government stimulation of demand, and no one knows what will happen as the stimulus spending wanes.

Uncertainty is a consequence of hyperkinetic government, which is a consequence of the governmental confidence that is a consequence of progressivism. The premise of progressivism is that all will be well if enough power is concentrated in Washington, and enough Washington power is concentrated in the executive branch, and enough really clever experts are concentrated in the executive branch. This is why the government's perceived impotence concerning the gulf oil spill is subversive of the Obama administration's master narrative.

Obama is the first president whose presidential campaign was his qualification for the office he sought. He almost said so on Sept. 1, 2008, as a large hurricane made landfall on the Gulf Coast. Megan McArdle of the Atlantic has resurrected Obama's answer when he was asked whether could handle such a crisis.

Using perhaps the royal plural -- a harbinger of grandiosity to come -- Obama cited the size, cost and complexity of his campaign: "Our ability to manage large systems and to execute, I think, has been made clear over the last couple of years," and "indicates the degree to which we can provide the kinds of support and good service that the American people expect."

Progressives generally, and Obama especially, encourage expectations as large as the 1,428-page (cap-and-trade), 1,566-page (financial reform) and 2,409-page (health care) bills they churn out as "comprehensive" solutions to this and that. For a proper progressive, anything short of a "comprehensive" solution to, say, the problem of illegal immigration is unworthy of consideration. For today's progressive president, the prospect of a jobless recovery is a comprehensive nightmare.
