Kansas Legislators Treated to “vacation of a lifetime” by Turkish Advocate Group.

15 10 2016

Over the last several years Kansas Legislators have been among some 6000 American officials and civic leaders treated to expense paid vacations by Turks seeking to gain political favors.

According to Sophia Pandya & Nancy Gallagher in their 2012 book “The Gulen Hizmet Movement and Its Transnational Activities”,   “To date more than 6000 Americans have traveled to Turkey at the invitation of Hizmet institutes and have returned to support the activities of the Turkish immigrant circles.”

The typical Gulenist trip is 9-10 days.  The costs reported run from $3400-$9,000.[1] If the average trip runs $5000, Turkish/Gulen organizations have already invested over $30 Million in American politicians from the local, to state, and national levels.  This doesn’t count campaign contributions from these organizations, or individuals within those into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.[2]

This begs the question, “What is Turkey’s interest, or the interest of Gulen organizations in Kansas, the United States, and other Western nations?”  No other foreign national delegation or organization has been so aggressive or shown such interest in Kansas officials.

Consider the following possible answers:

  • Winning the hearts and minds of American officials to favor Turkey friendly legislation
  • Charter Schools – Gain more charters in more states (Already 151 Turkish run charter schools in 26 states) worth millions in taxpayer funding and contracts for foreign based companies.
  • Improved perception of Islam through “Interfaith Dialog” (Another Fethullah Gulen founded institution) by American politicians.  Islam calls it “dawah”, their version of “missionary work”. Gulenists refer to it as “Hizmet”.
  • Advancement of the Islamic settlement strategy outlined in the “Explanatory Memorandum on the Strategic Goal for the [Muslim Brotherhood] in North America”, 1991. (Exhibit 003-0085, US vs. Holy Land Foundation, July, 2007) [3]

Turkish Politics and Kansas Ties

The Turkish Friendship Network Resolution (HR6013) offered on Mar 7, 2012, stated many wonderful things about how Turkey shared the United States interests in “cherishing the universal values of freedom, democracy and human rights…and has demonstrated…tolerance of others in the secular and religious venues…”. These statements are misleading if not blatantly false.  Turkey has faced a number of issues which has kept it out of the European Union, not the least of which is human rights issues, including freedom of religion, and freedom of speech. Furthermore, Turkish journalists have been jailed for speaking out against the current government, which has become increasingly “Islamized” in recent years.[4]

The resolution (6013) began by speaking of Turkey as a “secular…republic“, which, while for the previous 70-80 years it was indeed a secular government, balanced by a secular military which enforced that secularist state, in 2002 an Islamist sympathizing party known as AKP (Justice and Development Party) gained a majority of seats in Parliament, and still holds the majority as well as the Presidency and Prime Ministry.

On Feb. 22, 2010, 49 Turkish Military Officers were arrested, preempting military action that had historically kept the government of Turkey balanced in opposition to Islamists, sending a new message that this government will not tolerate opposition from civilian or military dissidents.  (See this article in Foreign Policy Magazine by Turkish writer Sonar Cagaptay.[5])

The Constitution of The Republic of Turkey may be secular in letter but the government itself is no longer secular in practice.[6]   Researcher Bingul Durbas, PhD researcher for the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development, says that “honor killings” in Turkey have risen 14 fold since 2002.[7]

An article by Steven Elwart (The Gulen Movement)[8]gives a good summary of Gulen’s activities in the US revealing that Gulen groups in America such as Raindrop House, have strong ties to AKP politicians in Turkey, and most if not all those Parliament members attending the Turkic-(your state) receptions held in many American cities belong to AKP (Justice and Development Party-a decidedly Islamist majority party in Turkey’s government).

Of late the Turks seem more interested in promoting Azerbaijan than Turkey, perhaps due to a lot of attention Turkey has been getting in the media, concerning not only the Islamization of the government, and it’s slow and tepid response against ISIS, but its own continued human rights violations[9]  that run smack in the face of the “Friendship Resolutions” that are peddled in state houses around the country and are becoming less likely to be received.  It may also run parallel to the Fethullah Gulen’s fallout with the Turkish government [10]  recently, over accusations of “bugging” of government offices resulting in many of his followers in Turkey being arrested, interrogated or imprisoned along with any other journalists who had been criticizing the Erdogen government.

More recently, the alleged “coup” in Turkey has been laid at the feet of Gulen as President Recip Tayyip Erdogen continues his purge of Gulen followers.   The interesting thing is that while the Turkish Delegation in America won’t criticize the Turkish government, they remain in full allegiance to Fethullah Gulen, who owns some 20 media outlets and at least 300 schools inside Turkey, and over 1,000 worldwide.  These institutions inside Turkey have been banned since Erdogen’s purge began.  The “coup” attempt led to 240 deaths in July of 2016.  Since then, Erdogen’s Islamist government has fired 100,000 people and jailed 32,000 in an effort to root out Gulen supporters accused of sedition.  The “coup” has been a prime opportunity for Erdogen to eliminate his chief rival’s support system and consolidate his own power base.  (The two basically want the same thing, a caliphate, but Erdogen felt threatened by Gulen’s huge support mechanism and popularity, so he had to be rendered a non-threat.  If there is to be a caliphate absorbing post-Assad Syria, Iraq, and whatever else comes together, Erdogen wants to be the Sultan.  Swirling allegations of Gulen being used by CIA[13] to effect a change in the attitudes of the students, particularly in Central and Southern Asia may also be fueling Erdogen’s aggressive actions toward Gulen’s massive network.)  Erdogen has also begun to attack Gulen schools around the world as terror cells, and has, once again appealed to President Obama to extradite Gulen.  He has filed a formal complaint with the Texas Education Agency against Harmony Public Schools, and asked education officials in California and Texas to investigate any schools tied to the Gulen organizations.

The Gulen School network, known as Hizmet (Service), has flourished in the United States
since Gulen’s arrival in 1999.  Names like Harmony Public Schools, Horizon Academy, Frontier, Daisy, Magnolia, and a plethora of other unimposing, monikers take in the Hizmet schools.  The largest, Harmony, has over 45 charter schools in the state of Texas alone.  So far, there are none in Kansas, although they are in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Colorado.

These charters are publicly funded with tax dollars, and have been subject to FBI investigations, continuous audits, and several school closures due to illegal mishandling of funds. Contracts to build schools usually go through Cosmos Foundation and are awarded to Turkish construction companies.  In the two year period from 2009 to 2011, six charter school contracts worth over $50 million were given to a new company called TDM and one other.  TDM was only one month old when awarded its first charter school contract worth over $8 million.[12]

Besides the huge contracts going to foreign companies, faculty is being brought in from Turkey on H1B1 visas, because the administrators claim there are no qualified American teachers.  Thousands of Turkish teachers have been rotated through this program, some whose English is unintelligible, as revealed in a CBS 60 Minutes segment by Leslie Stahl in 2012[14].  This particular individual was hired to teach English.  This appears to be a money maker for the Hizmet as well, since the Turkish teachers, well paid, are required to give large percentages of their salaries back to the organization [Sometimes 40-50%].  (State auditors in Ohio found that a number of schools had “illegally expended” public funding to pay legal, immigration, and air-travel fees for nonemployees and retained teachers who lacked proper licenses. Audited records from the Horizon Science Academy in Cincinnati in May 2009 also say that “for the period of time under audit, 47 percent (nine of 19) of the school’s teachers were not properly licensed.”)[11]

Gulen network groups like Raindrop Turkish House and Turquoise Council of American Eurasions (TCAE) continue their public relations campaign on the local and state level throughout the United States.  Award dinners and breakfasts will continue to be held to stroke public servants from the city council to the fire department, from the local library to the university deans.  They will continue to walk the halls of the Capital building in Topeka and other states, shaking hands and politicking legislators, winning friends who will carry resolutions, which may eventually lead to binding legislation allowing Harmony or Horizon to build their first charter school in Kansas.  Several Kansas Legislators including Sidney Carlin, Joan Pottorf, Niles Dilmore, James Todd, Chris Steineger, Vern Swanson, and Tom Moxley have already seen the tour of Turkey compliments of their hosts led by Sellahattin Aydin, a regular at Topeka.  Unlike other tours though, the legislators had to pay their own airfare, which would have constituted a “gift” illegal to elected officials.

Kansas Watchdog published an article on May 11, 2010 entitled “Ethics: Legislators cannot pay for Turkey trips with campaign funds”.

                “The Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission in a special teleconference meeting scheduled for Monday afternoon ruled that Kansas legislators could not use their campaign accounts to pay a $1300 portion for a trip to Turkey organized by the Turquoise Council of Americans and Eurasians.
“The Commission could not find a connection between the trip, which was largely for site [sic] seeing, and a legislator’s duties as an elected official.” [1]

[All other expenses inside Turkey were paid by the TCAE, Institute for Interfaith Dialog, and/or affiliates.]

Besides the FBI investigations into the school network, these organizations have been subject to media investigations, including USA Today’s most recent release[15], revealing Congressional ethics violations and irregularities in reporting Congressional travel expenses for those members who took advantage of the offers of travel.

Ultimately, according to some scholars, the Gulen movement is about more than just teaching children.  “The main purpose right now”,  says Dr. Hakan Yavuz, a Turkish-born assistant professor at the University of Utah’s Middle East Center, “is to show the positive side of Islam and to make Americans sympathize with Islam.” [12]

UPDATE: HR 569- Special Status for Muslims Bill

7 01 2016

***LATEST UPDATE BELOW as of Sept 10,  2016***
(Scroll down to see latest sponsor update)

Last December I published “Freedom of Speech: The Continued Assault on America’s Most Precious Liberty” which discussed the dangerous aspects of the bill giving special status/protection to one religious group.  I published the entire text of the bill (without the list of sponsors)  in that article- If you have not read it yet, you can see it here — https://definingthenarrative.com/2015/12/31/freedom-of-speech-the-continued-assault-on-americas-most-precious-liberty/

According to GovTrack.us  the House Resolution which will give Muslims special status against “violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric” has gained many new co-Sponsors, all Democrats.  This makes 145 co-Sponsors, all Democrats.

The bill is still in Judiciary Committee, which is comprised of 23 Republicans (including Louis Gomhert, Trey Gowdy, and Steve King) and 16 Democrats (including Hank Johnson, who thought the island of Guam would capsize with so many military personnel and equipt, and Sheila Jackson Lee).

Here is a link to the entire text of the bill in pdf itself so you can see the entire list of the original sponsors and download for your own use:  https://ingrafted.files.wordpress.com/2015/12/hr-569-us.pdf

This bill is an American Muslim version of UN Resolution 16/18, a bill pushed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) which represents the 56 Islamic nations around the world.  Hillary Clinton stumped for it at Ankara, Turkey, while Sec of State.

HR 569 specifically names Muslims as a special class, worthy of protection from “bigotry or hateful rhetoric”.  “Hateful rhetoric” is a subjective term and can mean anything, including criticism of Islam, and in the Shari’a “bigotry” can be something as simple as rejection of Islam itself, which is an offense to Muslims according to the Sharia, and justifies jihad.  We are seeing the results of this manifested in European countries today.  I do not ever recall a House Resolution which gives special preference to Jews, Christians, Buddhists, or any other religious group.  It is outrageous!

We hear the propaganda from the media on a daily basis about how Muslims are the most persecuted group in America.  The simple fact is, of all religious groups, Jews are still the most victimized.  The FBI reports 62% of anti-Religion hate crimes are against Jews, compared to 11% against Muslims.  While that FBI report is 2012, the latest available in a quick search, the latest data gathered by a media study group shows an uptick in post terror attack of about 17% in the next few weeks, but dropping back to 10% higher a year later.  That would increase the overall anti-Muslim instances to about 12-13% of all anti-religious hate crimes are against Muslims while not changing the 62% against Jews appreciably.

This pro-Muslim bill is most likely being peddled by Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood organization who has had incredible influence on the Democrat Party members and some Republicans.  They have free access to the White House and continue to have “preferred” status at WH events.  CAIR is still listed as a “co-conspirator” in the 2008 terrorist funding trial, where several of its members were convicted and are currently in prison.   The indictments ceased when Mr. Obama took office.

Contact your Representative as well as the House Judiciary Committee members which you will find at this link:  http://judiciary.house.gov/index.cfm/committee-members .

Tell them to stop HR 569 in Committee.

Freedom of Speech – The Continued Assault on America’s Most Precious Liberty

31 12 2015

ontheriseHouse Resolution 569 was introduced into the United States House of Representatives on December 17, 2015.  It will be part of the legislation reviewed by Congress in 2016.  Just to give you a peek at the language included, here is the introduction, right off the top of the bill:

“Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.”

Well, I think “violence” against anyone is already condemned and considered a crime under existing legislation across the land.  “Bigotry and hateful rhetoric” has been the target of lawsuits, city ordinances, statutory law, and social pressure for generations now.  So why do we need more legislation on the books condemning these behaviors and crimes against anyone?  Of any religion? Race? Creed?

The U. S. Dept of Justice defines “hate crimes” as:  “the violence of intolerance and bigotry, intended to hurt and intimidate someone because of their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.”  41 states and the District of Columbia have laws against “hate crimes” on their books.  These gist of these laws is that the penalty for committing a crime against a random victim is not as bad as for a crime against someone who has been targeted for one of the above reasons, which presupposes then the victim of a “hate crime” is hurt more than your average run of the mill victim.  Seriously, an assault victim bleeds just as much whether the perp has chosen them because of a “hate” reason or an economic one, or for for whatever reason.  A murder victim is just as dead whether chosen for the color of their skin or for the car they were driving, or the money in their pocket.  Dead is dead, and the murderer is still a murderer and will spend the rest of their miserable lives in prison or be executed.  As you can tell, I struggle with the logic of “hate crimes”.

Be that as it may, the fact remains there are plenty of laws on the books that address the issue for all victimized people, regardless of race, religion, etc.

But the point of this bill is this:  Muslims are a special class of people, worthy of much higher standards of protection than, say, Jews, Christians, or Buddhists, Sikhs, or atheists.

Rep. Don Beyer, 8th Dist VA. Via Wikipedia

So where does this idea come from?  Well, I can tell you this much.  It wasn’t the brainchild of Virginia Representative Don Beyer (D), sponsor of HR 569, who just happens to represent Virginia’s 8th Congressional District, which just happens to include the city of Falls Church, which just happens to be the location of the Dar al Hijra Islamic Center.  This is the mosque, you may remember, where several of the Sept 11th hijackers attended, where Anwar al-Alawki was the Imam (before he fled to Yemen where a US drone took him out), and Major Nidal Hassan attended prior to his Jihad on Fort Hood.  Dar al-Hijra just happens to be the mosque co-founded by Ismail Elbarasse, whose basement was a storage hold for a plethora of documents seized by the FBI in 2004, among which was the document known as the “Explanatory Memorandum for the Strategic Goal for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America”.  This was one of the documents entered as evidence in the largest terrorism funding trial in US history.  The mosque itself appears to have a long history of Islamic extremist  and terrorist ties.

But, yet, even so, the Dar al-Hijra (“Land of Migration“) mosque is not the origin of HR 569.

HR 569 is but a mirror image of UN Resolution 16/18, which was formerly known as the “Defamation of Religion”, or more accurately “The International Blasphemy” law.   The goal specifically in HR 569 is to stop any criticism of Islam or anyone or anything Islamic.  This has been the steady mantra in the Islamic groups ever since President Obama stated in the UN General Assembly “The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam.”

Muslims encourage stifling of free speech

Muslims encourage stifling of free speech

That statement was like blood in the water for sharks.  It followed the White House propaganda line concerning the Benghazi affair where Ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans were murdered by Islamic Terrorists.  Muslim groups in the UN as well as around the country called for illegalizing criticism of Islam.  The Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City posted a link on its own website to a petition for a “law against insulting one’s religion”.

Obama was echoed by the likes of Pakistani President Zardari who said, “The international community must not become silent observers and should criminalize such acts that destroy the peace of the world and endanger world security by misusing freedom of expression.”  In other words, violence on the part of Muslims around the world must be expected when someone criticizes Islam or the prophet Muhammad, and it is the critic’s responsibility, not the violent Muslim’s.

That same chorus was joined by the newly elected Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi of Egypt, and then Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said it was time to put an end to the protection of Islamophobia masquerading as the freedom to speak freely.  Turkey’s President Erdogen called Islamophobia “a crime against humanity”.

These officials were inside the UN in New York promoting their speech killing rhetoric while outside on the street and around the nation protestors were echoing the same thing, demanding the criminalization of free speech.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton co-chaired an international conference in 2011, applauding the adoption of UN Resolution 16/18, and promised to apply pressure at home in the United States to suppress Islamophobia.

UN Resolution 16/18 is the work of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the largest special interest group in the world and second largest governance body compared to the UN itself.  OIC, funded largely by Saudi Arabia, represents 56 (Syria was 57) Islamic states throughout the world in their common interest of advancing the cause of Islam, which includes establishing the Sharia worldwide.  OIC has been a subject of previous posts on this blog. For more information on OIC click here.  The term “Islamophobia” was coined by OIC and propagated by CAIR, and has become part of the lexicon used to silence critics of Islam.  (OIC’s inferred definition of “Islamophobia” does not mean ‘fear of Islam‘ as the word suggests; rather ‘critical of, unaccepting or hostile to Islam in any way‘.)

Obviously then, the OIC, by way of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), is behind HR 569.

CAIR was at the forefront immediately following the recent San Bernardino jihad (which left 14 dead and 22 wounded) and, according to Investors Business Daily, “running interference” between investigators and witnesses and suspects”.

“As medics were still removing bodies from the mass shooting, CAIR rushed to assemble a bizarre press conference, letting the media ask questions of Farook’s brother-in-law before the FBI had a crack at him.” – (H/T IBD read more here)

CAIR remains on the FBI’s “bad boy list”, and has been denied delisting by Federal Court as an ‘unindicted co-conspirator’ in the largest terror funding trial in US history in 2008 – Un-indicted because the current administration suspended all previous indictments concerning that trial.  CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood organization and has been proven to have direct connections to HAMAS.

CAIR was  proactive and led the narrative in the San Bernardino jihad about the concern of “backlash” against Muslims.  Less than 2 days later, the US Atty General was leading the charge on CAIR’s behalf stating her greatest fear was not terrorist attacks, but retaliatory acts of violence against Muslims.  She went on, while addressing a Muslim gathering, to include “rhetoric and bigoted actions” in her list of prosecutions under way.

CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood and all its affiliates are having great success formulating or perpetuating the narrative.  Something tells me that “rhetorical terrorism” is a term that will be used by more than those spoiled little socialistic college students on college campus’ this fall.  While they’ve been looking for a “safe space” from “impactful” words, the Islamists have been working to outlaw them.

Stephen Coughlin, expert in Sharia and Islamic terrorism, and past consultant to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Daily Caller this:

“Over the last few years, major left-wing and Islamists organizations have been working diligently to reframe free speech in an oppositional narrative that distinguishes sanctioned speech, designated free speech, from hate speech in a long-term campaign to brand nonconforming speech as hate speech that is at first to be ridiculed and then criminalized”. (Read more Daily Caller)

Read that again.  Major Coughlin has summarized the entire Progressive playbook into one paragraph.

HR 569 in the US Congress has little chance of passing even if it gets out of Judicial Committee.  And it’s a resolution, not statute (Not that resolutions are not important and formative).  However, the really scary thing is it does have 82 Co-Sponsors, all Democrats.  82.  [UPDATED 2/3/16:  HR569 now has 125 Democrat co-sponsors.  For more updated info see here.]

You can download the entirety of HR 569 here complete with sponsors names, or see the text below.  It’s not long and I promise it will raise your blood pressure!

RESOLUTION Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States. HRES 569– Whereas the victims of anti-Muslim hate crimes and rhetoric have faced physical, verbal, and emotional abuse because they were Muslim or believed to be Muslim;

-Whereas the constitutional right to freedom of religious practice is a cherished United States value and violence or hate speech towards any United States community based on faith is in contravention of the Nation’s founding principles;

-Whereas there are millions of Muslims in the United States, a community made up of many diverse beliefs and cultures, and both immigrants and native-born citizens;

-Whereas this Muslim community is recognized as having made innumerable contributions to the cultural and economic fabric and well-being of United States society;

-Whereas hateful and intolerant acts against Muslims are contrary to the United States values of acceptance, welcoming, and fellowship with those of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures;

-Whereas these acts affect not only the individual victims but also their families, communities, and the entire group whose faith or beliefs were the motivation for the act;

-Whereas Muslim women who wear hijabs, headscarves, or other religious articles of clothing have been disproportionately targeted because of their religious clothing, articles, or observances; and

-Whereas the rise of hateful and anti-Muslim speech, violence, and cultural ignorance plays into the false narrative spread by terrorist groups of Western hatred of Islam, and can encourage certain individuals to react in extreme and violent ways:

Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives—  expresses its condolences for the victims of anti-Muslim hate crimes; (2) steadfastly confirms its dedication to the rights and dignity of all its citizens of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures;
(3) denounces in the strongest terms the increase of hate speech, intimidation, violence, vandalism, arson, and other hate crimes targeted against mosques, Muslims, or those perceived to be Muslim;
(4) recognizes that the United States Muslim 12 community has made countless positive contributions to United States society;
(5) declares that the civil rights and civil liberties of all United States citizens, including Muslims in the United States, should be protected and preserved;
(6) urges local and Federal law enforcement authorities to work to prevent hate crimes; and to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law those perpetrators of hate crimes; and
(7) reaffirms the inalienable right of every citizen to live without fear and intimidation, and to practice their freedom of faith.

Well…isn’t that special…?  I’m not even gonna unpack that sucker!!!

The Myth of “Self Radicalization” and the Fallacy of “Radical Islam”

4 12 2015

This article is a repost from 2 years ago.  I have edited and updated it slightly.  It is as much, if not more relevant today. -DTN

Media Trilobites and government officials continue to bump into each other, feeding on nonsensical buzz words that become trendy for a few weeks and are eventually absorbed into the pop culture lexicon.  These phrases or terms may lie dormant for ages until suddenly they’re on every television commentator’s lips.  If we can’t find a word in the English language to spin up to instant glory, we’ll borrow one from another language.  Al Gore did just that when he described himself as having “gravitas” during his run for the White House. Nearly instantaneously, every talking head in the country was using the heavy Latin word, until finally Chris Mathews commented that Barack Obama’s gravitas caused a tingle to run up his leg.  It kinda lost its punch after that.

But the real point here is the incessant blathering about “self radicalized” terrorists, specifically the brothers Tsarnaev, better known as the Boston Bombers, who were responsible for nearly 270 maimed, wounded, or dead, and now the “San Bernadino Terrorists”who have now been proven to be fundamentalist Muslims and are celebrated as “Shahid” (martyrs) around the globe.  They were not “violent extremists”.  They were Mujahideen, “soldiers of Allah”, on jihad.

Disregarding the obvious elephant in the room, both the government and the media, began hunting for fleas and swatting at gnats.  “Whatever could be the reason for this horrendous tragedy?”  In the Boston Bombing case the story line continued for hours into days that this had to be the work of some “right wing extremists”, and even the President floated a hint or two about April 15th being “tax day”, of course insinuating it was a right-wing tax protest, obviously connected to the Tea Party.

Even before the victims at San Bernadino were removed from the horrific scene of the attack, commentators, reporters and officials were forming a narrative of “3 White Males dressed in military fatigues and body armor“.  Many of the reporters were hoping they were White Supremist’s, not even holding out the possibility of a terrorist attack.  In fact, there seemed to be a refusal to even consider the possibility of the shooters having any ties to Islam, continuing, like CNN’s Harry Houck and law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes, to speculate “right-wingers” were most likely the culprit; Fuentes surmising it to be “an anti-government domestic militia group”. [H/T Newsbusters]

After all, there have been so many “right wing” attacks – Like the first bombing of the World Trade Center back in ’93; no wait, that was Islamic jihad.  Oh, like the 911 attacks when Tea Party members flew passenger airliners into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and were headed for the White House; oh…sorry, those were Islamic jihadist hijackers. Well, like the DC Snipers who terrorized the city for 3 weeks in 2002; no wait, they were Islamic also.  Well then there was the White Supremacist, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who killed one soldier and wounded another in front of the recruiting office in Arkansas in 2009; sorry, again Islamic jihad.

Well…there are so many events that are known to have connections to “conservative right wing Christian radicals” such as: The Fort Hood Massacre when that Christian shooter yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he gunned down 40 people, killing 13.  The 2009 Riverdale New York bomb plot planned by 4 radical Tea Party grandma’s, the Times Square Bomber who had his SUV full of propane tanks and fireworks (surely some redneck like Larry the Cable Guy), the “Fort Dix Six”, the “Underwear Bomber”, the “Shoe Bomber”, etcetera ad nauseam.

My, my, what could it be? What ever could it be that is initiating all these attacks and plots?

[According to this Congressional report, there have been well over 60 successful, attempted, or plotted Islamic Jihad Terrorist attacks on US soil between 9-11-2001 and Jan of 2013.]

Of course, most of these were played off as “Lone Wolf” scenarios where the terrorist was “self-radicalized”.

Listening to all the ‘crack investigative reporters and hard-hitting journalists’, one could come to the conclusion that these guys just must wake up one morning and “self-radicalize” deciding today is a good day to kill some people’.

This term is a copout for lazy journalists and downright deceiving when used by anyone.  A person cannot “self-radicalize” any more than “self-socialize”.  There must be a cause, a mentor, or an ideology that brings a person to the point that he is willing to, no, compelled to kill random people that he doesn’t even know.

That mentor, in many cases, is a spiritual leader.  That cause, or ideology, which is that rather enormous and obnoxious “elephant in the room” that none of the trilobites are willing to discuss?  Islam.

Forget Islam as a Religion

The sooner Americans refuse to continue accepting Islam as a viable and peaceful “religion” and begin to view it as the sociopolitical ideology that it truly is, the greater the possibility the America will survive its onslaught.

The root problem for America is not that Islam has come to colonize her, which it has, but the fact that we have allowed “multi-culturalism” (immigration without assimilation) and “pluralism” (all cultures, ideologies, realities are equal) to progress unchecked resulting in a “balkanized” or “tribal” society wherein competing ideologies are viewed as co-equal.  Not all ideologies are conducive to civilized society, nor are they consistent with the basic premise of freedom, as established in America’s founding documents.

If I were to try to convince you that Germany’s National Socialism (Nazism) is a peaceful ideology that was hijacked by a few “self radicalized” individuals, resulting in the holocaust, you’d laugh in my face.  Well, that’s a pretty good comparison: You have a ‘prophet’ by the name of Hitler who sought to consolidate power under a banner of a unified ideology by clearing the field of competing ideologies, and went to war in order to stoke the economy and gain control of more land area.  Had Muhammad access to German weapons of mass destruction he would certainly not have hesitated to use them.   Hitler’s Holocaust resulted in an estimated 11 Million deaths, many of which were communist (because Karl Marx was Jewish), mentally or physically handicapped, Jehovah’s Witness, homosexual, or Christian leaders such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer who refused to place their names upon the “Aryan Clause” and become “Reich Churches” to do the bidding of the “almighty Fuhrer”.   But his “Final Solution” for 6 million Jews had already been proven and prescribed by Islam’s prophet Muhammad in the Arabian Peninsula 1400 years prior in places with such names as Banu Quaraysa and Khaybar, where Muhammad slaughtered unarmed male prisoners and enslaved the girls, and women, finally appropriating all Jewish property to Muslims.

Both economies required perpetual war.  (The fundamental Islamic world view is “Dar al-Islam” or Dar al-Harb: The world is divided and you either dwell in the “House of Islam”, where Islam rules, or you dwell in the “House of War” and are subject to Jihad.)

Both ideologies have religious overtones (Hitler was worshipped and given a godlike status).  Both ‘prophets’ were consumed with power.  Both cultures fostered distrust and suspicion (Gestapo was everywhere and anyone who challenged the Prophet was dealt with harshly.)  Both Nazism and Islam are fundamentally racist.   Neither can compete philosophically with opposing values, absent of an oppressive legal system or war.

Consider the following argument:

“Well, you know those “Brown Shirts” are really not as bad as the SS or Gestapo.  Now those SS are some evil dudes.  SS are the real “radical” Nazi’s.  The Brownshirts might beat you up but those SS will kill you!  We really need to reach out to those individuals and find out why they hate us so much.  But most of the Nazi’s are moderate.  They aren’t violent at all.  Sure, they go to the rallies where Hitler is speaking, but they’re just normal folks like you and me!  They want the same for their families as we all want.  Yeah, Nazism is actually a very patriotic and peaceful ideology, it’s just been hijacked by some radicals who seek to politicize it, and destroy property and kill people and take their property in the name of this peaceful movement.” 

Well, as you can see this defense of Nazism just doesn’t fly!  Ironically, this is the exact apologetic defense that Islam gets from not only the American mainstream media, but from our government as well!

“Self Radicalization”

This term makes about as much sense as “Obamacare”.  An individual who is willing to commit a violent act of mass murder and mayhem in the name of his god, or any other cause, is soaked in an ideology which is taught or programmed into a person’s psyche.  That ideology doesn’t simply spawn in the mind of the perpetrator.  It comes from someone else, whether through print or other media; from a teacher, guide or mentor.  But the term “self radicalize” is specifically designed to deflect attention from that aforementioned ‘elephant’ sitting in the middle of the room.

Islam is that ideology and it can be taught by other people or the documents themselves, the Koran, Hadith, and countless commentaries and books of Islamic scholars (such asSeyyid Qutb) may be read and studied by the individual, even to the point of the student acting upon those teachings.  Tamerlan Tsarnaev did not “self-radicalize” anymore than Nidal Hasan or Osama bin Ladin.  He was taught.  He was taught the purest form of Islam, the Fundamentals of Islam. He believed it, he consumed it, and finally it consumed him.  His actions were based on his faith in his Scriptures (Koran), his prophet (Muhammad), and his god (Allah).

“We Love Death more than You Love Life”

The first victim of Islam is the Muslim.  Islam is, as I have pointed out before, a Great Black Beast.  It will consume everyone in its path if left unchecked, until finally there is no competing religion or ideology permitted.  There is a creed that surfaces occasionally when studying the Islamic culture which is so shaped by the obligatory act of jihad: “We love death more than you love life.” It has been a part of Islam since its earliest doctrines were formulated during that period immediately following Muhammad’s death in 632 (AD). This is that age of Islamic conquest the four “Rightly Guided Caliphs”, It is used by Hamas in their propaganda media.  It was recently used in a letter to the British government by six terrorists who pleaded guilty of planning an attack on the EDL last year.   It was repeated by the Madrid terrorists and actually earned a slide in a power point presentation by Nidal Hassan prior to his jihad attack which resulted in 13 dead and 32 wounded at Fort Hood, Texas. Islam is the largest death cult in the world. Those countries and regions where Islam rules unchecked are anything but bastions of freedom.

CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) came up with a new word in order to try to embarrass and defeat anyone who opposes Islam.  They have been quite successful in defining the Islamic narrative in the United States.  That word is “Islamophobia”. The goal is to paint opposition to Islam as bigoted, racist, and xenophobic.  It doesn’t stick.  Sorry CAIR, I am not afraid of Islam, I am not a racist, nor am I a bigot.   But I will tell you what true “Islamophobia” is.  Just as the word says, “Fear of Islam”.  But CAIR has misplaced the word.

Islamophobia is when a free press self-censors for fear of offending Muslims and consequential retribution from Islam.

Islamophobic is a government which refuses to name the enemy in a war which has been declared on the United States of America by the collective ideology called Islam, for fear of political influence of CAIR, ISNA, ICNA among Islamic organizations, and fear the Saudi’s will pull out of Wall Street and crash our economy.

Islamophobic is a White House which is more interested in “winning the hearts and minds” of a sworn enemy than defeating him, while Islamic groups like CAIR and the OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) filter every training manual and terrorism report issued by the Pentagon.

Islamophobia is when a military acquiesces to the demands of that same sworn enemy to deny Christian or Jewish religious ministry to its own soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen on sovereign soil of our military bases in Afghanistan, but allows an Imam to pray over our dead SEAL’s at Baghram AFB, damning their souls in the name of Allah.

Islamophobic is a President who is more interested in punishing the producer of a two-bit video “slandering the prophet” than he is about punishing those who murdered 4Americans in Benghazi, Libya in a jihad attack, for fear that he will lose the upcoming election if he offends Muslims.

Islamophobia is an Attorney General who vows to prosecute those who say anything critical of Islam.  THAT, my friends is “Islamophobia”.

In the words of Billy Vaughn, father of Aaron Vaughn, one of 26 Navy Seals killed in the “Extorsion 17” helo crash in Wardok Province in 2012, “When you hide the truth, you become part of the lie.”

Americans must face the truth.  We have allowed our government and our media to hide the truth. We have hidden our own faces from the truth.  The ideology that is Islam is fundamentally, and diametrically opposed to America and all that she stands for.





The Satanic Alliance: Marxism, Islam and Privileged Hatred

26 10 2015

islamintern

Islamic Marxism, Islamic Socialism, seems to be a contradiction of terms.

Be NOT Deceived!  THIS has been an allied movement for a long time in the US and for generations around the world!

THIS is why the Progressives/Socialists/Marxists find kindred purpose with the likes of the Muslim Brotherhood groups such as CAIR, MSA, ICNA, ISNA, MPAC, and etc. ad nauseam.  Every “Social Justice” movement in the world has origins and common purpose in the destruction of Capitalism, the United States of America, and Western Society in general.  It is Anti-Christian, not Anti-Religion; Christianity focuses on the rights, liberties and value of the individual!  Individuals do NOT exist in this post-American World; Only the Collective!

Familiarize yourselves with “Sustainable Development”, “Sustainability”, “Sustainable Growth”; it is found in the UN (Marxist from its roots) agenda known as “Agenda 21”.  New buzz words encompassing this belief include, 20/20, 20/30, 20/50, “Smart Growth”, and “Smart Growth Corridors”, all coming to a city council near you!

In the following video, watch for phrases like: “Social Justice”, “Socialist”,  “Justice”.  This phraseology is straight out of the Communist Manifesto!

Pay Attention!  The world has already changed and America is now Ahmerikah!

(More on this subject to come)





Islam IS Incompatible with the US Constitution

22 09 2015

I have written extensively on this site of the threat that Islam and it’s self contained jurisprudence known as the “Sharia” (The Right Path) poses to the United States, its Constitution, and all of Western Society.  It is amazing that 15 years post 9/11 and ignorance is the main player in the American media as well as the mainstream pop culture which consumes it.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is beside itself demanding, DEMANDING I say, that Ben Carson get out of the Presidential race and America condemn him as “unfit” to serve as President, because he doesn’t understand the Constitution!

Let’s see now, CAIR, a known HAMAS tied Muslim Brotherhood front group, founded by Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad, both of whom were members of the Islamic Association for Palestine which was proven in Federal court to have funneled American money to HAMAS and other terrorist groups for jihad,  and still remains on the “Un-indicted Co-conspirator” list left over from the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest Terrorist Funding Trial in US history, who called on Mr. Obama to back legislation limiting freedom of speech, is lecturing America on the Constitution!

Back in 2013 I wrote an article that explains what Sharia is and how incompatible Islam is, not only with American culture, but our laws including the Constitution.  It includes excerpts from Umdat al-Salik, The Classic Manual of Islamic Holy Law which also gives Quranic justification for each statute.  An excerpt from that article is posted here:

[At] Kansas KU Sharia HandbookUniversity Law School there are classes that teach Sharia to aspiring young law students.  The textbook reads like you would expect; revised history and a sanitized theological discussion, soothing the non-inquisitive mind and ignorant spirit that it’s just “freedom of religion” and no different than Jewish Halakhah or Catholic Canon.  Of course, the sanitized Sharia version leaves out all the gory stuff like dismemberment for thieves and pow’s, execution for apostates (o8.1; “When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.”), homosexuals (p17.1 “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.”), wine-bibbers (p14.2-1, “Scourge whoever drinks wine…if he drinks it a fourth time kill him.”) atheists (o9.0 “The Caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim.”), and anyone of the Jewish or Christian persuasion who does not “submit” to the rule of Islam.  Sharia also obliges the Muslim adherent, male or female, to circumcision (e4.3), and despite Muslim claims to the contrary, there is no age limit for marriage of girls.  A high percentage in the Islamic world are given (for dowry) in marriage by their fathers under the age of 16, many before puberty, such as the recent case in Yemen resulting in the death of the 8 yr old child.  This is not uncommon in Sharia controlled states. But the sanitized version will treat this as an outlier, a regional or custom related practice, when in reality under sharia, the family determines the age.

Touted as mainly for use by Muslims for “family matters”, the sanitized version also leaves out the fact that a woman’s testimony is worth half the value of a man’s and she rates behind any male heirs who get the first shares of the estate right after the mosque,  and a rape victim is generally to blame for her plight and she could be shamed, outcast or worse.  It is not uncommon for rape victims to be beaten or stoned for adultery, fornication, and/or “honor killed”, under sharia as discussed in this article by Hasan Mahmud.

The Sharia that is taught at KU and is shown to the general public also whitewashes Jihad as the “inner struggle”, ignoring the fact that this one line is cherry picked from 8 pages of directives concerning the Jihad (Holy War, o9.0) “to war against non-Muslims…signifying warfare to establish the religion (Islam)…” and presents Hadith’s like Bukhari quoting Muhammad as saying, “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat . If they say it, they have saved their blood and possession from me, except for the rights of Islam over them.”  The remaining headings under “Jihad” are titled: “The Obligatory Character of Jihad”,  “Who is Obliged to Fight in Jihad”, “The Objectives of Jihad” (“The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…[and] fights all other people until they become Muslim.”), “The Rules of Warfare”, “Truces”, “The Spoils of Battle”. This section on “Jihad” is immediately followed by, “Non-Muslim Subjects of the Islamic State (Dhimmi)”.  Now I ask you, does that sound like that very personal, struggle within ones own self to submit to Allah and maintain one’s faith?

One other important aspect to Sharia is that it codifies lying, or “deception”, in order to advance the cause of Islam (r8.2) and stay out of trouble with one’s wife!  Aside from the obvious advantage of keeping the wife deceived, “Taqiyya” (deception) is employed especially when Muslims are outnumbered, as a minority of a host society, in order to gain the trust and deceive the host, until a majority of Muslims can use politics, education, or force to overpower it.  Sound familiar yet?  Click here for more on Sharia.

[Shaira quotes and references from: “Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”, by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, accepted by Islamic Scholars around the world as the authoritative English translation]

You see, the objective of Islam is not to be equal, just as CAIR co-Founder Omar Ahmad stated, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

Then there is the proposed “Blasphemy Law” that is being called for by Muslims around the world, which would make it a crime against humanity to criticize Islam.  Immediately after Barack Obama gave his infamous speech, declaring “The future does not belong to those who would slander the prophet” at the 2012 United Nations General Assembly, in the wake of the Benghazi terrorist attack (which he and Hillary Clinton blamed on an anti-Muhammad video), Muslims from around the world and closer to home made the hue and cry for freedom of speech to be made criminal.

Muslims encourage stifling of free speech

The Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City posted a link to a petition on their website encouraging visitors to sign on, petitioning “The President of the United States: To sponsor a bill that outlaws any action that may insult one’s religion”.  (The petition got a whopping  351 signatures.)  While the President hasn’t actually sponsored legislation to curtail free speech, he has enacted policies within the many bureaucracies, including DHS and the DOJ, which are threatening American’s freedom of speech.  The Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) immediately petitioned the UN to pass the same ordinance.

You can be sure this will not be slowing down anytime soon.  CAIR and cohorts are like sharks with blood in the water.  Once a breech is made, a flood will ensue.  In fact the flood gates are open and this breech will not be closed under this government. While “American Laws for American Courts” is good law and so far, effective as to it’s intent, it is only as good as our legal system which is becoming increasingly compromised.

American’s (non-Muslim that is) must learn why Islam is detrimental to all of Western Culture and the basic freedoms that we have enjoyed for so long.  Islam is indeed, “The Great Black Beast”, a cloud hanging over head that is going to become more oppressive unless we learn to reject it, and once again embrace the true God which has been the source of all that is good and just in our culture thus far.

Sayyid Syeed, National Director for the Office for Interfaith & Community Alliances for the Islamic Society of North America (another Muslim Brotherhood affiliate), put it this way in 2004, “Our job is to change the Constitution of America”.  That is to make it more compatible with Sharia.

As you can see, Islamic Law doesn’t fit well into the American Jurisprudence and, as Dr. Carson so eloquently stated, is incompatible with our Constitution.

Dr. Ben Carson seems to be a bit old fashioned…I mean…really!  The Constitution is something that he really cares about?  And he is running for President!!





The Curious Case of Kansas, Azerbaijan, and the Turkish Connection

15 02 2015

Not long ago I wrote a post that included a few paragraphs about the Armenian Genocide  of 1914-15 in which about 1.5 million Armenian Christians were slaughtered, along with 1 million Greek and 300K Syriac Christians, by Turkish and Ottoman Kurdish forces.  By 1923, most of the survivors had been displaced, running for their lives, or in deportation pogroms.

It was a true genocide,   perpetrated by Muslim Turks seeking to eliminate the Armenian and other Christian/ethnic  groups  in the region.

Turkish Ottoman Interior Minister Mehmet Talat Pasha is on record ordering, “Their [Armenians] existence must come to an end, however tragic the means may be; and no regard must be paid to either age or sex, or to conscientious scruples.”   Turkey’s government still refuses to recognize the holocaust perpetrated by its own early 20th century governments, initiating the bloodiest century in world history and has banned books discussing the matter and continues its denial.

Armenia has been relegated to a small sliver of mostly mountainous country less than 12,000 sq miles sandwiched between Turkey, Iran, and Azerbaijan, with Georgia (now Russian) on the north in a region which was part of the old Soviet Union, and had been unstable for several years following USSR’s dissolution in the ‘80’s.

Modern Armenia, population 3 million, has good foreign relations with pretty much everyone other than its Turkic neighbors (Turkey and Azerbaijan) who have blockaded the Armenians for 20 years following a hot war, and has a security relationship with Russia for protection against its two hostile neighbors.  It continues an armed standoff in Nagorno-Karabakh (NK)   a small province of Armenian enclave between Armenia proper and Azerbaijan.  In 1988 NK had voted to either merge with Armenia or declare independence from Azerbaijan.  They warred for 2 years, leaving Armenia in control of NK, and Azerbaijan unwilling to let it go.  Russia had brokered the cease fire, which thus far has held, and was also key in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh’s survival as sovereign states.

Armenia and NK had fielded a combined force of about 20,000 with support of materials and Russian troops against Azerbaijan’s combined allied forces of 64,000 including Chechen and Afghan Mujahideen (Islamic Holy Warriors), Turks, and a Turkic Nationalist terrorist group known as “The Grey Wolves” (responsible for the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul in 1981).  It was a deadly war with Azerbaijan’s allied force losing about 5 for every 1 Armenian lost.  While sniper fire is still felt along the lines, the Armenian populous of the defacto Nagorno-Karabakh Republic  is hoping to hold NK long enough for a new generation of Azeri to refuse to fight any longer, and they continue to develop as a free and independent state.

Oil and gas rich Azerbaijan is busy enjoying its developing wealth and may indeed one day, refuse to return to the fight, but as long as friend Turkey continues to remind them of those “evil” Armenians, the fires of hatred are not likely to burn out.

The Turkish Delegation have been busy since at least 2002 conducting public relations programs across the United States, working to win the “hearts and minds” of American civil servants at all levels, from local city councils and police and fire departments, to state Legislators, sheriff’s offices, and local FBI offices.  They extend an invitation to an awards dinner, then present the targeted individual or group with some award concerning community relations.  They normally operate through a local Turkish organization such as Raindrop Turkish House or other TCAE (Turquoise Council of American Eurasians) affiliates.  All these organizations are associated with Fethullah Gulen, the Turkish Imam who lives in Pennsylvania. They have a growing number of Turkish Charter Schools (146) around the USA, and continue to expand that movement, lobbying state legislators.  During the legislative session these groups will host a “Legislative Reception” or “breakfast” where elected officials are enticed with Turkish food, culture and entertainment.  They are then encouraged to join the hosts for a “trip of a lifetime” to their home country of Turkey, (or Azerbaijan) usually about 10 days, expenses paid of course.   These Turkish emissaries then continue to bring resolution after resolution into legislatures of many states which either praise Azerbaijan or subtly condemn Armenia, or seek to expand current relations with the Turkish government itself.  Check your state legislature and most likely you’ll find them there.

“To date, more than 6000 Americans have traveled to Turkey at the invitation of Hizmet institutes and have returned to support the activities of the Turkish immigrant circles.” – Sophia Pandya & Nancy Gallagher-The Gulen Hizmet Movement and Its Transnational Activities

The typical Gulenist trip is 9-10 days.  The costs reported run from $3400-$9,000.  If the average trip runs $5000, Turkish/Gulen organizations have already invested over $30 Million in American politicians from the local, to state, and national levels.  This doesn’t count campaign contributions from these organizations, or individuals within those, of over a million dollars.

Of late the Turks seem more interested in promoting Azerbaijan than Turkey, perhaps due to a lot of attention Turkey has been getting in the media, concerning not only the Islamization of the government, and it’s slow and tepid response against ISIS, but its own continued human rights violations that run smack in the face of the “Friendship Resolutions” that are peddled in state houses around the country.  It may also run parallel to the Fethullah Gulen’s fallout with the Turkish government recently, over accusations of “bugging” of government offices resulting in many of his followers in Turkey being arrested, interrogated or imprisoned along with any other journalists who had been criticizing the Erdogen government.  The interesting thing is that while the Turkish Delegation in America won’t criticize the Turkish government, they remain in full allegiance to Fethullah Gulen, who owns some 20 media outlets and thousands of schools inside Turkey.

Recently Kansas Legislators received an invitation from the Turquois Council of American Eurasians Kansas City affiliate, the Assembly of AFAZ InvitationFriends of Azerbaijan to attend a meeting in the Capital building on February the 25th, 2015, 11am-1pm, to “Remember the Khojaly Tragedy”.  Naturally, curiosity led to some historical research to ascertain why the Turks would be interested in “educating” our legislators with an hour and a half presentation about a battle between the Armenians and the Azer’s.

There are, of course, more than one side to any story, so the best approach is to find out what both sides say, then get some objective reporting on the matter and formulate an educated opinion based on facts available.

The Azer’s and the Turks are calling this Khojaly battle everything from a tragedy, to a massacre, to genocide.  The information surrounding this controversial event is wide and varied, depending on the source, and historical events surrounding the war itself are a bit confusing, as can be many wars.   Suffice to say that Turkey’s persecution and displacement of the Armenians in the early 20th century led to conflicts with the Azeri (also Turkic) which both came under control of the Soviet Union soon thereafter.  Indeed the tensions ran high between the two groups as the Azeri are Muslim (Shiite) and Armenians of course mostly Christian.  The boot of Communism precluded any infighting and promises were made to both Armenia and Azerbaijan that they would each indeed be awarded Nagorno-Kharabak for their cooperation with the Soviets.

After the breakup of the Soviet Union the old conflicts began to re-emerge until NK declared their independence from Azerbaijan in 1988.

The particular event in question, that of Khojaly in February of 1992 resulted in somewhere between 161 and 613 civilian deaths.  That’s quite a difference of account for the numbers used, and likewise the details vary as much.  The loss of civilian life in a war-zone is indeed a tragedy, no matter where, or who the victims are, but this hardly constitutes a “genocide”.  Especially, if the town of 6,000 had been warned the day before the attack, to evacuate, and a safe corridor was available for that purpose.  It should also be noted that Khojaly was home to the only airstrip in the region and was held by Azeri allied forces.

This excerpt from the Human Rights Watch 1993 Report posted on UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) website shows that the war had become a smash-mouth affair, with indiscriminate attacks from both sides leading up to Khojaly:

“Whichever side held the strategic advantage in Nagorno Karabakh at any given moment was the one that most egregiously violated the rules of war. While Azerbaijani forces held outposts in Shusha and Khojaly, they pounded the capital of Nagorno Karabakh, Stepanakert, and other Armenian towns and villages with shells and grenades. The indiscriminate shelling and sniper shooting killed or maimed hundreds of civilians, destroyed homes, hospitals and other objects that are not legitimate military targets, and generally terrorized the civilian population. During the winter of 1992, Armenian forces went on the offensive, forcing almost the entire Azerbaijani population of the enclave to flee, and committing unconscionable acts of violence against civilians as they fled. The most notorious of these attacks occurred on February 25 in the village of Khojaly. A large column of residents, accompanied by a few dozen retreating fighters, fled the city as it fell to Armenian forces. As they approached the border with Azerbaijan, they came across an Armenian military post and were cruelly fired upon. At least 161 civilians are known to have been murdered in this incident, although Azerbaijani officials estimate that about 800 perished. Armenian forces killed unarmed civilians and soldiers who were hors de combat, and looted and sometimes burned homes. In its counter offensive, launched in the summer, Azerbaijani forces indiscriminately bombarded Armenian towns and villages from SU-25 aircraft and ground-launched missiles. The Armenian government does not categorize civilian casualties according to the circumstances of their death or injury. Based on interviews conducted in November with more than 50 civilians who were witnesses to or casualties of indiscriminate air bombings, Helsinki Watch estimates that at least 56 civilians were killed as a result of these attacks in August and September alone.

Both sides in the conflict seized and exchanged civilian hostages, and also held corpses hostage, so frequently that the practice became an institution involving private individuals and military and government officials. Both sides held hostages, including women, in prisons or detention centers and distributed hostages as “insurance” among private families whose members were being held by the other side.”

According to British journalist Thomas De Waal the tragedy in Khojaly was a result of a spontaneous, rather than “deliberately planned” action by the Armenians.   Also, noted was that the forces were not acting on orders from the command.

Sadly enough, to coin a cliché, “War is hell”.  A tragedy, indeed.

But Azerbaijani websites such as azerbaijan.az serve as a propaganda tool to absolve Azerbaijan of any wrong doing, playing the victim, while placing all the blame for Khojaly at the feet of Armenia.  Did I mention there were somewhere between 1000-3000 Jihadi mercenaries from Afghanistan and Chechnya fighting with the Azeri’s during the war?  There was also a contingency of Russians fighting with Armenia (the 366th Motor Rifle Regiment) at Khojaly.

I did a bit of checking on the foundation who created the Azerbaijan.az  website, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.

Heydar Aliyev was the 3rd President of modern Azerbaijan and is known as the “Father of the Azeri Nation”, attaining a cult of personality on par with Kemal Attaturk of Turkey.  The president of Azerbaijan is head of state, while the PM is head of government.  He was successful in establishing an autocratic system which relies heavily on family, clan, oil/gas money and patronage.  After his death, his son was aptly elected to the office and will most likely be there for life, in light of the constitutional amendment that was passed after his re-election in 2008 that eliminated Presidential term limits.  (More in that vein to follow.)

Heydar Aliyev is seen as the name for a street in every town, some  60 museums and centers in the small country, and virtually every major facility in the country from the largest airport to oil refineries, to a major sports complex, and of course the Foundations large and elaborate Cultural Center, an architectural wonder, as are many of the ultra-modern buildings and skyscrapers in the large city of Baku, the pearl of the Caspian Sea.

Aliyev was responsible for developing the petroleum resources and building modern Azerbaijan from the ground up, into what some compare to Dubai.  So, basically, the name Heydar Aliyev is synonymous with Azerbaijan and its government.  The Heydar Aliyev Foundation is at the cutting edge of every aspect of Azeri life, social, economic, academic, and governmental, including worldwide promotion of the country.  The First Lady is in charge of the Foundation.

Her husband, the President of Azerbaijan and son of the late Heydar Aliyev, Ilhem Aliyev, was, prior to following his father’s footsteps into the Presidential mansion, appointed as Vice President of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR), (yes, the state owned oil company), and became a key player in organizing the “Contract of the Century” which brought a dozen Western  and Asian oil developing companies into the country, solidifying its wealth for decades to come.  He was then appointed to the Olympic committee (AZ has bid on the 2020 summer Olympics), and became Prime Minister just a few months before his father stepped down for health reasons and then became President in 2003.

The government has managed to maintain a strictly secular environment, in spite of 85% of the population being Shiite Muslim, the same as their southern neighbor, Iran, with minority populations of Sunni Muslim, various Christian sects, Jewish, and several other minority religions.  Today only 21% of the population profess that religion plays and important role in their personal lives.  It is being touted as a perfect model of coexistence by many Westerners.  So was Turkey for many years.

However, there may be trouble in paradise.  For all its outward sparkle and shine, some of the natives are restless.   Azerbaijan’s human rights record has been called into question on numerous occasions.  Human Rights Watch published violations ranging from corrupt elections, politically motivated prosecutions, prosecution of journalists who favor opposition groups or those who are a little to “investigative”, torture and ill treatment, violation of freedom of association and freedom of peaceful assembly, forced evictions and demolition of property without fair compensation, and so on.  You can check out the HRW 2014 report on Azerbaijan here.

President Ilham Aliyev has been compared to a Mafia crime boss.  Consider the following referenced and footnoted excerpt from Wikipedia:

“In 2012 the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) named Ilham Aliyev Person of the Year (a title bestowed for figuring prominently in 2012 on stories on crime and corruption) after “well-documented evidence” revealed that “his family has secret ownership stakes in the country’s largest businesses including bank, construction companies, gold mines and phone companies”.[40] According to ICIJ latest report, Aliyev’s family has been a shareholder of big offshore companies.[41] As reported by The Washington Post and Mail Online, Aliyev’s two daughters share a property portfolio of about £50 million – across Dubai, Paris and London and Aliyev’s 11-year-old son in Dubai owns “nine waterfront mansions” with a total price of “about $44 million – or roughly 10,000 years’ worth of salary for the average citizen of Azerbaijan”.

And concerning Armenia:

“Aliyev has been cited as calling all Armenian people in the world as the enemies of Azerbaijan, and as regularly threatening to take over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh and the entire Armenian Republic through military force.”  [See full article here]

So let’s review what we have so far-

Azerbaijan is run by an autocratic family who controls just about everything including the banks, the oil, the government, education and the media propaganda machine.  The family run Foundation propagates a favorable narrative to perspective international partners and allies. Not only that but the family’s oil company, SOCAR, through the Turquois Council for American Eurasians (TCAE) a Fethullah Gulen organization, funded and hosted a large-scale lobbying event in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, organized by various other member organizations of the Gulen-affiliated Turkic American Alliance.  The event was billed as the “US-Azerbaijan Convention: Vision for Future” and was held at, you guessed it, the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center.

According to a Washington Diplomat article posted June of 2013:

“No doubt this was among the biggest concentrations of American political star power ever seen in the Caucasus — 317 delegates from 42 states, including 11 sitting members of Congress and 75 state representatives, not to mention the former governors of New Mexico and Oklahoma as well as three ex-Obama White House insiders: political strategist David Plouffe, former press secretary Robert Gibbs and ex-deputy chief of staff Jim Messina.

In fact, Plouffe, Messina and Gibbs were all called out in a Washington Post story that was published at the height of our trip. The article, “For Obama’s ex-aides, it’s time to cash in on experience,” said all three were given five-figure checks to speak at the forum as part of Azerbaijan’s charm offensive to woo Americans.”  [Washington Diplomat article here]

That same article went on to say that certain media were banned from covering the event.

C.A.S.I.L.I.P.S (Citizens Against Special Interest Lobbying In Public Schools) also reviews the Diplomat article and makes some startling connections between the players mentioned in the article and the Gulen School movement taking place in the United States.  The following excerpt from CASILIPS:

“The Washington Diplomat quoted organizer Kemal Oksuz as stating that “95 percent of [the attendees] received honorariums of $2,500 each. The remaining 5 percent — including Plouffe, Gibbs and Messina — were paid no more than $10,000 or $15,000.”  Luxner’s article then goes on to mention that each participant received “pricey gifts” “including a hand-woven Azeri carpet, an executive briefcase and a set of Czech-made tea glasses….”

“ Kemal Oksuz (a.k.a. “Kevin” Oksuz), the man who organized the convention, is a major player in the US Gulen Movement.  He is a former Executive Director of the Niagara Foundation, which has Fethullah Gulen as its honorary president.  As “Kevin” Oksuz, he was involved in applying for building permits for a complex at 501 Midway Dr in Mt Prospect, Illinois which now houses the Science Academy of Chicago, and is an address that has also been used by the Turkish American Federation of the Midwest, the Turkish American Society of Chicago, Niagara Educational Services, and United Strong Construction.  The latter firm was owed $72,000 by Concept Schools, according to its 2006 IRS Form 990.  Concept Schools manages 27 Gulen charter schools in the Midwest.  Memphis mayor Myron Lowery met “Turkish representatives” Kemal (a.k.a. Mark) Namver and Kemal Oksuz in 2009; Namver has ties to several Texas Gulen charter schools.  Other positions on Oksuz’s resume include Executive Director of the Institute of Interfaith Dialog, CEO of the Gulen Institute, and Vice President of the PTO of Harmony School of Innovation, a Gulen charter school in Houston.  Oksuz is currently director of the Turquoise Council of Americans and Eurasians and he also represents the Assembly of the Friends of Azerbaijan.  Kemal Oksuz’s company TDM (Target Design Management) was the subject of a June 6, 2011 New York Times article on insider deals at Gulen charter schools in Texas.  Oksuz managed to give $13,500 in political contributions in 2012 alone.  In Jan 2011, Oksuz was interviewed along with another high-profile Gulen follower, Yuksel Alp Aslandogan, in a PBS piece on the Gulen Movement.  In July 2011, Today’s Zaman, known to be a media outlet of the Gulen Movement, ran a piece on the Turkey trips organized by Oksuz.”

The Diplomat article gives a quote of $1.5 million as the price tag for the conference.  This includes the aforementioned speaker fees, gifts, and all travel, room, and board for all the attendees.  CASILIPS again asks:

“Where did the $1.5 million come from?  The conference website shows the “organizers” as the Turquoise Council for Americans and Eurasians and the Assembly of the Friends of Azerbaijan.  Listed “sponsors” are SOCAR (the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic), Practical Solutions Group, British Petroleum, Caspian Drilling Company, McDermott, Kellogg Brown & Root,  M-I Swaco, Conoco-Phillips, Chevron, and Azeri M-I Drilling Fluids Ltd.  It cannot be assumed with certainty that all these corporations provided funds, since the Gulen Movement is notorious for stretching the meaning of the word “sponsor” as it seeks to legitimize itself by putting the names or logos of as many respectable organizations as possible on its websites.”

CASILIPS goes on then to expose several ethics violations of elected officials accepting money or gifts from lobbying groups and shows post travel disclosure forms that have apparently been falsified by both the two Congressmen and Kemal Ozkuz, denying he is a lobbyist or a foreign agent of a sponsor of the trip.  [SEE CASILIPS page links and documentation here]

So what has all this to do with a presentation in the Kansas Capital building to Legislators about Khojaly?

To my friends in the Kansas Legislature I would caution this:

First, do not be misled.  Khojaly was not a genocide by any stretch of the imagination.  It was a trajedy, indeed, and could be easily called a massacre allegedly perpetrated by an out of control, emotionally charged contingent acting independently of its own command structure.   Keep the presentation in context with the historical information presented in this article.

Secondly, many of the photos that will probably be included have been shown to be falsified – Oh, they are real photographs; just that some were taken in other places, such as Kosovo in 1999 and attributed to the Khojaly trajedy, in the same manner that HAMAS has done.

Thirdly, do not fail to question why the Turks are so supportive of Azerbaijan, and what is their ultimate objective.  The Turks are in the education business.  They run 146 Charter Schools in the US and are seeking to establish in Kansas.  That is the objective.





Dateline: 11/14/14

20 11 2014

Most news stories have a dateline which includes the date, location, and today the news service which first published the story (Reuters, AP, ect.)
Most important is the publishing date and the location.  This story has several locations, but only one eventful date. Well, technically two dates exactly a hundred years apart.

November 14, 2014

Islamic State Dinar design, 2014 via WSJ

This date passed most Americans by with nothing more than a “TGIF”.  But Islam was celebrating.  Just as it did exactly 100 years prior, on November 14, 1914.  First we’ll look at a few “insignificant” stories that (barely) made the news, all on 11/14/14:

Dateline Iraq: Islamic State leader, “Caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announces plans for IS (Islamic State) to begin minting  its own official Dinari coinage in various denominations for use across the newly established, and Sharia governed “Caliphate”.

This announcement came within 24 hours of a speech released by al-Baghdadi, wherein he vowed to press on in establishing the Caliphate and fight “to the last man” in order to fulfill Allah’s directive, calling on Muslims everywhere to join the Jihad.  This following rumors that he had been wounded in a coalition force bombing.

According to this USA Today story, the coins carry the words in Arabic: “The Islamic State / A Caliphate Based on the Doctrine of the Prophet.”  Nothing Islamic about that, Mr. Obama.

Dateline Washington DC:  The United States House of Representatives was re-convened by praises given to Allah in the official opening prayer by a New Jersey Imam, Hamad Ahmad Chebli of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey with these words:

“In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful,” he began. “Praise be to Allah, the cherisher, the sustainer of the world, the most gracious, the most merciful master of the Day of Judgment. Thee do we worship and thine do we seek.”

“Guide us to the safe path,” Chebli continued. “The god of the prophets and the messenger says in the Koran [that] he does not place a responsibility on you greater than you can bear. Everyone will receive the good they have earned and vice versa.”

He then asked that Allah bless and guide Congress. [Courtesy JewsNews]

No, this was not the first time that a Muslim opened Congress in prayer, but it was the first time the name of Allah was invoked, and the first time Quran was quoted in that prayer.  I wonder, when was the last time even a Christian prayer was allowed to invoke the name of Jesus Christ in the US Congress?

Dateline Nigeria:   Boko Haram, the Islamic Terrorist organization who kidnapped 276 schoolgirls from a single town, has now seized control of that town of Chibok, as well as Hong and Gombi as it continues its Jihad to establish Nigeria as an Islamic State.

Dateline Washington:    One hundred and two years ago (1912) the first services were held in Bethlehem Chapel, the first completed portion of the National Cathedral, which incidentally has been the longest construction project in US history, spanning 83 years with the cornerstone laid in the

National Cathedral, Washington DC via Wikipedia

presence of President Theodore Roosevelt (bearing the scripture “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14)  and the final “finial” placed in 1990 in the presence of President George H W Bush.  The National Cathedral quickly became the center of services of prayer, thanksgiving,  memorials and funerals of Presidents and other state dignitaries, as well as national prayer services such as the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks on the US.  It has been designated by the United States Congress as a National House of Prayer.

Friday, November 14, 2014 the National House of Prayer became a mosque.  The administrators rearranged furnishings and laid prayer rugs for the 200 Muslim attendees in a fashion where they faced Mecca and did not have to view any Christian icons or symbols while praying to Allah.  How nice.  I am continuing to wait with bated breath the day when a Christian Pastor is invited into a Mosque to preach the Gospel and pray in the name of Jesus Christ!

The service was officiated by South Africa’s ambassador to the US, and Muslim scholar, Ibrahim Rasool.

Dates are not coincidental when it comes to Islam.  Symbolism of events and dates in history are very important and are used often to make a statement.  Take for instance, this date, 11/14/14.

Dateline Constantinople, Ottoman Empire, November 14, 1914:  The Caliph, Sheikh Ul Islam declares Jihad and urges Muslims to take up arms against the European Allies in World War One in its own alliance with Germany.  When the Caliph Mehmet II entered Constantinople in conquest in 1453, after 3 days of butchery, pillage and destruction, he rode to the Hagia Sophia, the greatest church of Eastern Orthodox Christianity, and halted its defacement.  He immediately called for dedicatory prayers and as the Adhan was echoing off the interior walls of the church, it was transformed into a Mosque, as a sign of conquest.  This has historically been the pattern, especially concerning any church of importance or grandeur, to take possession of and declare it a waqf (Islamic possession), which is forthwith and forever Islamic property.  The Grand Mosque of Mecca (The Kaabah), the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and the Great Cordoba Mosque are all historical examples of this.

Armenian girls crucified by Turks, 1915

In that Fatwa, or declaration of Jihad, the Turkish Caliph Mehmet Ul Islam, outlined the Quranic rules for jihad which were instructions to “take no friends of the Jews or Christians” and “kill them wherever you find them”, driving the infidels from the Land.

In 1914, Turkey was home to about 2 million Armenian Christians, 1.8 million Greeks, and 750K Assyrian (or Syriac Christians).  By 1923, a million Greeks, 300K Syriac’s, and 1.5 million Armenian Christians had been slaughtered by Turkish and Ottoman Kurdish forces.  Most of the survivors had been displaced, running for their lives, or in deportation pogroms.

Ottoman Interior Minister Mehmet Talat Pasha is on record ordering, “Kill every Armenian man, woman, and child without concern.”

Yet, even today Turkey’s government refuses to recognize the holocaust perpetrated by its early 20th century governments, initiating the bloodiest century in world history.  The Turkish government has banned books discussing the matter and continues its denial, with PM Recip Tayyip Erdogen calling for “an impartial study by historians” as to the fate of the Armenian People during WW1.  Maybe we could loan him a few of our “historians” who have revised our own American History for today’s consumption.

While the Pogroms, the “death marches” and the extermination orders began to be fulfilled in 1915, November 14, 1914 was the date of issuance of this official Fatwa which gave not only official authority, but moral prejudicial purpose according to the tenets of Islam, as directed in the Quran and Hadith composing the legal basis of Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia).   It was modeled after the last words of the Prophet Muhammad himself, “O Lord, perish the Jews and the Christians. They made churches of the graves of their Prophets. Beware, there should be no two faiths in Arabia. (Hadith – Muwatta Imam Malik, p. 371)  Stands to reason that the Turkish Caliph would emulate that Prophet above all Prophets, and seek to eliminate all faiths in Turkey, except Islam.

As far as genocides go, the Armenians don’t get much press.  We all have heard of the Jewish Holocaust.  We’ve heard of the short-lived Rwanda genocide where 800,000 were killed in just a couple of months in 1994.  We know of the “Killing Fields” of Cambodia in the late ’70’s when Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge wiped out over 2 million ethnic minorities and anyone who was a threat to the Communist ideology.  Maybe you’ve even heard of the Ukrainian genocide when Stalin starved or executed 7 million, mostly farmers who refused to “Collectivize” after the Communist Revolution formed the USSR, although he was responsible for several genocides that never made Western attention.

But the Armenian genocide continues to resonate for the United States and other Western nations who are increasingly faced with Islamic infiltration and confrontation.   It is amazing how the Turkish Delegation continues to work effectively in statehouses around the United States, with little or no resistance.  Turkey’s “cold war” on Armenia continues, even though Armenia has been relegated to a small sliver of mostly mountainous country less than 12,000 sq miles sandwiched between Turkey, Iran, and Azerbaijan, with Georgia on the north in a region which was part of the old Soviet Union, and had been unstable for several years following USSR’s dissolution.  Modern Armenia, population 3 million, has good foreign relations with pretty much everyone other than its Turkic neighbors (Turkey and Azerbaijan) who have blockaded the Armenians for 20 years following a hot war, and has a security relationship with Russia for protection against its two hostile neighbors.

Meanwhile, the Turks are busy conducting public relations programs across the United States, working to win the “hearts and minds” of American civil servants at all levels, from local city councils and police and fire departments, to state Legislators, Sheriffs offices, and local FBI offices.  They extend an invitation to an awards dinner, then present the targeted individual or group with some award concerning community relations.  They normally operate through a local Turkish organization such as Raindrop Turkish House or other TCAE (Turqoise Council of American Eurasians) affiliates.  Most, if not all these organizations are associated with Fethullah Gulen, the Turkish Imam who lives in Pennsylvania. They have a growing number of Turkish Charter Schools around the USA, and continue to expand that movement, lobbying state legislators.  Every legislative session these groups will host a “Legislative Reception” where elected officials are enticed with Turkish food, culture and entertainment.  They are then encouraged to join the hosts for a “trip of a lifetime” to their home country of Turkey, usually about 10 days, expenses paid of course.   These Turkish emissaries then continue to bring resolution after resolution into legislatures of many states which either praise Azerbaijan or condemn Armenia, or seek to expand current relations with the Turkish government itself.  Check your state legislature and most likely you’ll find them there.

The Kansas Legislature has dealt with a couple of these resolutions.  The first was a blatant attempt to deceive lawmakers into passing a “Turkish-Kansas Friendship Resolution” which was fraught with false claims of Turkey’s great human rights policies.  That was an embarrassment to our Turkish “friends” in attendance, being refused before it even came to a vote, so the next attempt was to get a Representative to carry a pro-Azerbaijan resolution the next year.

[Now Kansas has a long-standing mutually beneficial relationship with Armenia.  In 2003, The Republic of Armenia signed a bilateral affairs agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense and the state of Kansas establishing the Kansas-Armenia State Partnership Program, which includes services and training in a number of security and strategic defense issues including counter-terrorism.  Armenian troops have also served in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of the international Coalition Forces against Islamic Terrorism.]

Off floor debate and discussion became quite controversial once again, and one Kansas Democrat Representative who had just recently returned from one of those junkets to Azerbaijan and sponsored the resolution was overheard saying of the Armenians, “Those people don’t matter and their land is just desert”!  The Turks and the Azerbaijani’s had done their job well, but the resolution failed to accomplish the desired outcome, prompting two of the same sponsors to bring a pro-Armenian Resolution immediately.

The Armenians are a tough, resilient people.  For centuries they have been the subject of pogroms, genocide, persecution and wars.  They are a Christian culture on the border between atheism and Islam.  They are an ancient people with a proud heritage and an uncertain future in a part of the world where nothing is taken for granted.  Today they face the additional threat of the Islamic State, or the latest Caliphate, who has already targeted Armenians in Iraq and Syria.  American politics notwithstanding, the Armenian people will likely remain when the American people are scattered.

I have attached a short video of one Armenian-American family’s story.  Please take a look and reflect.  The world is not what it seems.  Coincidence, or political statement?





Oklahoma Mosque Exposed for Teaching Jihad (Holy War)

3 10 2014

Now infamous beheader, Alton Nolan, aka Jah’Keem Yisrael, attended Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City. This is where he was taught the principal of Islamic Jihad, defined in Umdat al-Salik, the “Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law” as “war against non-Muslims…to establish the religion [Islam]”. This volume continues to quote both Quran and Hadith justifying and giving instruction for jihad including:

“I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer[convert to Islam], and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them.”-Bukhari

And this Hadith from Sahi Muslim:

“To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.”

IN a recent interview with Megan Kelly, a man identified as “Noor” who also attended the ISGOKC mosque revealed that what the mosque leaders say in public and what they teach behind closed doors are two totally differing narratives. Noor confirmed that he attended the mosque for 2 years, and was taught that protecting fellow Muslims, even Osama bin Laden, from non-Muslims was the duty of all Muslims. He also spoke about “Taqqiya” (deception) whereby the Muslim is to lie in order to advance the cause of Islam.

Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City is the local chapter of Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), one of several Muslim Brotherhood front groups in America named as an “undindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land Foundation trial of 2008. ISNA has chapters in most major cities in the United States. An Imam, Suhaib Webb, formerly of ISGOKC, has connections with other Islamist Mosques, including the Islamic Society of Boston mosque where the “Boston Bombers” attended, and had ties to Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki and was recently calling for an “Islamic State” at a Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser.

The accused, Alton Nolan, has asked to be represented by a Muslim attorney. Prosecutors will seek the death penalty.

Watch the “Noor” video with Megan Kelly. It will put to rest any question what ISNA mosques are up to in America.





Changing Demographics

26 08 2014

As ISIS, or “The Islamic State” continues to establish the Caliphate, it seems that few realize that ISIS, ISIL, or IS (same people) are no different than HAMAS, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, or the Taliban. They all share the same common ideology, spelled out in the Quran, that Islam is to rule the world, either by culture jihad, legal jihad, or militant jihad. This same ideology is shared among Sunni and Shia alike, worldwide, and jihad must continue “until Allah’s religion reigns supreme”-Quran 8:39 “Co-existence” is taqqiyya (deception) when promoted by Islam, and a deadly liberal pipe dream when believed by non-Muslims. It is a carrot dangled by Islamic groups from the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates to the “friendly” Turkish delegation.

I posted this video several years ago but many who are visiting this site have joined since then. It is a startling refresher for those who may have seen it as well as newcomers. This continues this video series of the Islamic Settlement of Western Society. More to come –





Sedgwick County Sheriff Caves to HAMAS

25 05 2014

Sheriff Jeff Easter was a great help to our Kansas team in passing “Counter-Terrorism” legislation this year. This news is greatly disappointing. See the post from Understanding The Threat blog below. H/T John Guandolo

Sedgwick County Sheriff Surrenders to Hamas

Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter today cancelled next week’s planned UTT 2-day training program, caving in to complaints by Hamas and local Muslim Brotherhood leaders in Wichita and other parts of Kansas. For more details, watch the local ABC Report.

The loudest complaints came from Hamas spokesman Ibrahim Hooper. Hooper works for the Hamas organization called the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). For those confused about CAIR being Hamas…

In a December 2007 government filing in the US v Sabri Benkhala appeal – an Al Qaeda operative – the government stated: “From its founding by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.” A massive amount of evidence entered into the largest Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v Holy Land Foundation (“HLF”), Dallas, 2008) identified CAIR as the fourth organization created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee in America. The Palestine Committee is Hamas. Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. government.

When CAIR petitioned the Federal Court to remove it’s name from the Unindicted Co-Conspirator list in the HLF case, the trial Judge Jorge Solis wrote in his 2010 unsealed opinion, “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with the HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.” CAIR was left on the Co-Conspirator list. CAIR appealed the ruling and the appellate court ruled unanimously to keep CAIR listed as an “Unindicted Co-Conspirator” in the largest Hamas trial in U.S. history because of the overwhelming evidence.

Other Muslims in the community who complained to the Sedgwick Sheriff’s office were leaders and spokesmen from the local Muslim Students Associations (the first Muslim Brotherhood organization established in America in 1963) and the Islamic Society of Wichita – a Muslim Brotherhood organization and a subsidiary of the Islamic Society of North America which is the largest MB organization here and a financial support entity for Hamas per the evidence at the HLF trial.

These are the groups and individuals who have led the charge to shut this training down in Wichita…enemies of the United States.
Because of the nature of the threat from the Islamic Movement in the United States (an insurgency), the burden falls to local police to be the tip of the spear in countering their efforts here. When local police leaders are not aware of this and do not understand their critical role in the larger war, the war will be lost.

In the press release today the Sedgwick Sheriff’s Office stated: “The Sheriff’s Office will find an instructor, either from the Department of Justice or another subject matter expert to present such material in the future.” Unfortunately for Wichita law enforcement, this material is not being presented by any other organization in the nation besides UTT. A few years ago during a 3-day program at Headquarters Marine Corps for approximately 115 professionals from FBI (to include the National Joint Terrorism Task Force personnel), CIA, DHS, DIA, NSA, local and state police, military, and others, a Counterterrorism Supervisor from FBI Headquarters stood up in front of the entire crowd and stated he never heard any of the material presented but confirmed it was true and factual based on the evidence and materials presented. When asked, none of the other attendees were aware of this information either, including the men and women from the FBI’s National Joint Terrorism Task Force in attendance.

So, by canceling this training in Kansas, the Sedgwick County Sheriff has not only emboldened our enemy – namely the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas – he has ensured that local law enforcement will NOT get the very training they need to protect and defend their communities.

CAIR Using Wichita Paper to Attempt Shut Down of Law Enforcement Counter-Terrorism Training

22 05 2014

The following report is via “Understanding the Threat” newsletter. This attempt by CAIR, a known HAMAS supporting organization in the USA, is just the latest in a string of attempts to either shut down these counter-terrorism training seminars for Law Enforcement or any other speakers or information that brings bad publicity to Islam. Many of these attempts have been successful, with local authorities kowtowing to CAIR’s demands. CAIR was a leading influence on the Obama Administration to remove the counter Islamic Terrorism training (mentioned below) from the FBI’s manuals. CAIR was also instrumental in reframing the Fort Hood terrorist attack that killed 13 unarmed military personnel, wounding 30 more, into a “workplace violence” incident, expunging all references to Islam, jihad, Muslim, or terrorism from the official report.

CAIR has been unsuccessful in deterring Kansas Legislators and the Governor from passing American Laws for American Courts legislation, a “Female Genital Mutilation” deterrent bill, and just this session a “counter-terrorism” bill coming on the heels of the uunsuccessful Jihad attack on the Wichita airport last fall.

understand the threat (640x572)

Today (5-21), Wichita Eagle reporter Tim Potter produced a pro-Hamas propaganda piece by regurgitating the comments provided to him by national Hamas spokesman Ibrahim Hooper, who represents the Hamas front group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) trying to shut down a 2-day “Understanding the Threat” (UTT) training program for law enforcement in Kansas next week.

This begs the question, if Mr. Potter wrote a pro-Hamas article knowing it would possibly shut down fact/evidence based training by UTT to law enforcement and thus help Hamas’ efforts in the U.S., or simply help Hamas in a general way, does this constitute “Material Support of Terrorism” in accordance with the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in July 2010 on the matter (“Holder, Attorney General, et al VS Humanitarian Law Project”).

And if Mr. Potter wrote this Hamas puff-piece without any understanding of who Ibrahim Hooper is, shouldn’t he be fired for being incompetent at the very job the Wichita Eagle is paying him to do?

Hamas Propaganda at the Wichita Eagle
Beginning by describing Hamas front group CAIR as a “major national Muslim organization,” Mr. Potter spends a large portion of his article quoting

Tim Potter, Wichita Eagle

Hamas spokesman Ibrahim Hooper who denounces next weeks’ two day training by “Understanding the Threat.”

True to their Kansas backbone, and not deterred by a flea like Ibrahim Hooper, the law enforcement officials are standing firm and plan to move forward with this training.

What is noticeably missing in Mr. Potter’s article is any mention that evidence in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v Holy Land Foundation (“HLF”), Dallas, 2008) revealed CAIR was created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood to support Hamas and is hostile to the United States. CAIR is listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial and the Department of Justice lists them as members of the U.S. Palestine Committee in America, which is Hamas.

When CAIR asked the U.S. Court to remove it from the “Unindicted Co-Conspirator List” the federal judge, Jorge Solis, wrote in his unsealed ruling, “The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”) and with Hamas.” This matter was sent to the appellate court which ruled unanimously to keep CAIR on the unindicted co-conspirator list because of the overwhelming evidence against them.

In this case, the government provided a massive amount of documentary and testimonial evidence linking CAIR to the Hamas conspiracy for which HLF and its leaders where convicted and given lengthy jail sentences.

Also missing from Tim Potters article is the fact that the FBI cut off all ties with CAIR because of the HLF evidence linking them to Hamas.

So why is the Wichita Eagle and Tim Potter offering them a platform to attack UTT and the upcoming training program?

The President of UTT is John Guandolo, a decorated Marine Corps Infantry and Reconnaissance officer and combat veteran, who, as an FBI Special Agent, created the first training program in the government detailing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Movement, Sharia, and strategies to deal with the enemy front groups like CAIR. Mr. Guandolo was awarded the “Defender of the Homeland” Award by Senators Jon Kyl and Joseph Lieberman for his efforts.

No mention of any of this in Tim Potter’s article.

One has to assume the Wichita Eagle made an affirmative decision to promote a known Jihadi (“Terrorist” if you prefer) like Ibrahim Hooper over a combat veteran who continues to offer a mountain of facts already in evidence that CAIR is Hamas.

With this in mind, let us turn our eyes back to the Supreme Court’s July 2010 ruling on Material Support. The ruling details what constitutes “material support” and specifically affirms that “any” actions taken to support a designated terrorist organization constitutes “material support” including menial tasks and classes on first aid, because the government and Court understand you cannot separate various kinds of support. “Advocating” for a terrorist organization is also considered material support so long as the advocates “performed in coordination with, or at the direction of, a foreign terrorist organization.” Does the Wichita Eagle know CAIR is Hamas? Did they do any research whatsoever?
It appears to come down to two choices: the Wichita Eagle is a grossly negligent media outlet, or it is knowingly supporting a Hamas entity. Who will pose the question to them? It deserves an answer.

I encourage readers to do a few things:

1. Contact the reporter Tim Potter at tpotter@wichitaeagle.com or 316-268-6684 and pose the above questions to him.
2. Contact FBI Headquarters and ask them why a Hamas entity (CAIR) with whom they have broken all ties remains unindicted. 202-324-3000.
3. Contact the Attorney General’s Public Comment Line and ask why Hamas front CAIR remains unindicted. 202-353-1515.

It is time to purge terrorist organizations like CAIR and their leaders from our society. It can begin by holding people and organizations in our communities – like the Wichita Eagle – accountable so, at a minimum, they will stop supporting Jihadis.

American Muslim Brotherhood Organizes New Political Party

5 04 2014

In an effort to motivate and organize the Muslim Ummah in American politics, the Muslim Brotherhood has launched the U. S. Council of Muslim Organizations USCMO in hopes of having a determining impact in US elections.

“‘Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016…We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”  So said Nihad Awad, Co-founder and Executive Director of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).  CAIR is among several Islamist groups working under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood, recently named a terrorist organization by Egypt who also has recently condemned hundreds of MB members, including former President Mohamed Morsi, to death.

muslim_brotherhood_1 (1)

“Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our guide; the Koran is our law; Jihad is our means; and martyrdom in the way of Allah is our inspiration.” Creed of the Muslim Brotherhood

The “Explanatory Memorandum on the Strategic Goal for the [Muslim Brotherhood] in North America” outlines the plan for the Islamic colonization and conquest of the US, a document published in 1991.  Among the USCMO participating organizations found listed among those named as MB organizations or “those of our friends” is not only CAIR, but also Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS) which was founded in ’93, two years after the ‘Memorandum” was published as a result of Muslim Brotherhood in America deciding they should have a public face.

The MAS instigator and self proclaimed co-founder Mohamed Mahdi Akef was the Supreme Guide for the MB International in Egypt from 2002 until Mohamed Badie replaced him in 2012.  (Last July, 2013 both men were arrested along with the other MB leadership, after Morsi was ousted by the Egyptian military.  I could not confirm whether Akef was one of the 528 condemned on March 24th.)  Sheikh Akef’s entire life has been intertwined with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. MAS is actively involved in anti-Semitic propaganda and pro-jihad statements, encouraging Muslims by quoting Quranic statements to avoid friendship with Jews and Christians, “kill them”, and “wage Jihad with the intention of dying as a martyr”.  As with other MB organizations, the prime directive is to establish an Islamic State in the U.S.

This is the next step in the “culture-jihad” delineated in the “Memorandum“.

Egypt Sentences Muslim Brothers to ‘Death’

25 03 2014

I’m sure you remember the much championed “Arab Spring”.  At least it was championed by all the Western Media elite and the Obama Administration as a “new birth” for the Arab states in North Africa.  The resulting chaos has been anything but life-giving. Especially for religious minorities in those major majority nations.  In Libya, the “rebels”, with US help, captured and butchered Moamar Ghaddafi, the long time evil dictator who trained and funded terrorists against the West, and claimed responsility for the Lockerbie bombing of PanAm Flt 103 in 1988.  (Now it seems that he lied about that in order to get the west to “lift crippling sanctions to pave the way for lucrative oil deals, some of which were brokered by Tony Blair”, and that the culprit was actually Iran. – The Telegraph)

The removal of Ghaddafi eventually resulted in the loss of four Americans at the Benghazi consulate, including the US Ambassador to Libya.  The conspiracy theories surrounding that whole story continue to swirl as a result of the US Government laying blame at the feet of a small time movie producer who dissed the “prophet” Muhammad.  Were it not for the valiant self-sacrifice of those two former SEAL’s, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, there would have been dozens of dead American foreign service members.

The Obama Administration continued to press Egypt to oust Hosni Mubarak, a man who was no friend to the Muslim Brotherhood.  You see, the Muslim Brotherhood is not new to Egypt. In fact, Egypt is the Ikhwan’s birthplace in 1928.  Hassan al-Banna founded the Brotherhood to bring back the Khilafah (caliphate) which had been outlawed by the new government of Turkey after Mustafa Kemal Ataturk led an effective revolution and became Turkey’s first president in 1922.

The Brotherhood continued to grow in strength and during the time of Nasser’s coup d’etat of 1952 were beginning to create a problem.  By 1954, Nasser had outlawed the Brotherhood and imprisoned thousands in concentration camps.  One of these was Seyyid Qutb, author of Milestones, among many other publications. Qutb is known as one of the most influential Muslim thinkers of modernity.  He has influenced men like Osama bin Ladin, founder of Al Qaida, Ayman Zawahiri of Islamic Jihad, and Anwar al-Awlaki, the American grown terrorist who preached at the Falls Church, VA mosque attended by 3 of the 911 hijackers, and one Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood jihadi who killed 13 unarmed soldiers in a classroom, and wounded 30 more.

Nassar arrested about 18,000 Muslim Brotherhood members in 1965 under rumors of a planned insurrection and about 38 Brothers were killed, 200 imprisoned, and Seyyid Qutb, along with 2 other Brothers were executed by hanging in 1966.  Nasser died in 1970 and his lieutenant and VP Anwar Sadat took over as President.  Sadat was not as aggressive against the Ikhwan and after he signed the peace treaty with Israel, in which he regained the Sinai, he was assassinated by Islamists within the Egyptian military in 1981.  The assassins acted on a fatwa issued by none other than “The Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman, mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center

bombing. Rahman is also a student of Seyyid Qutb.

When Anwar Sadat was assassinated there were several others killed and over 20 people wounded.  Hosni Mubarak was among the wounded.

Egyptians Protesting Barack Obama and Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Morsi

Egyptians Protesting Barack Obama and Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Morsi

The fate of Egypt is in the hands of who ever can keep in power.  History has shown that little more matters in Northern Africa.  As has been the case for the last century, the West’s interests in the region, and those citizens of those countries who do not adhere to a Muslim Brotherhood’s ideology, aka Sharia law, are at the mercy of the power holders.  When the American President calls upon a people to support the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization who believes that Sharia Law must be the governing authority, and then assists the MB in gaining power, he must bear responsibility for the consequences.  Those consequences include Coptic Christians, as well as Jews, who have been terrorized, killed, beaten and burned out by the consenting voices of the Muslim Brotherhood government (Morsi).   Obama owns that.

Egypt has officially declared the Muslim Brotherhood to be a “terrorist organization”.  On March 24, 2014, the new Egyptian government which took down the short-lived Muslim Brotherhood government after it terrorized its own minority citizens, tried 1200 Brotherhood members.  528 have been found guilty of murder and have been sentenced to death.  The remainder have yet to be sentenced.  Time will reveal whether Egypt will actually carry out the sentences, but it sure looks as if the country has had a belly full of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have even gone so far as to declare Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization!

Yet the Obama administration not only continues to voice support for the MB in Egypt, it has ongoing domestic relations with many Muslim Brotherhood organizations, and their members, in the United States.  Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR), Muslim Students Assn (MSA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), (and the list goes on!) all Muslim Brotherhood sanctioned Islamist activist groups working inside the United States with one goal:  Islamizing the United States of America.  This is not simply a loose accusation-it is a proven fact supported by the Muslim Brotherhood’s own “Strategic Plan for Islam in North America”.  (Yes, it’s in Arabic but if you scroll down to page 16 you get the English translation)

Under Nasser, Egypt was an ally to the USSR.  Sadat opened up to Western alliances and was an important ally to the US during the cold war era, and contributed to the security of Israel.  Now, after a perceived betrayal by the United States under Mr. Obama, Russia is once again at the forefront of Egypt’s allied partners.  What a pity that Vladimer Putin was handed the opportunity to take the high moral road in both Egypt and Syria, where hesitation from the US resulted in Al-Qaida and it’s allies to basically wrench the uprising against another evil dictator, Bashir Assad, out of control of forces friendly to the United States.  This has led to a sadly impotent foreign policy which is of no practical use concerning The Crimea and yet to be seen aggression by Russia.   Turkey is now the next one who appears to be falling under Putin’s spell, as a result of a lack of trust or confidence in America, and has already been taken from the inside by the Islamist movement.  There will be more to come on this for sure!

I will be keenly interested in Obama’s response to this death sentence and condemnation of the Muslim Brotherhood… or lack thereof.  Stay tuned…

 





Minneapolis Somalis still being recruited by al-Shabab to fulfill “religious duty”

28 09 2013

Refugee Resettlement Watch has been covering the Somalian immigration into the United States for a long time. Kansas is just one state that has been affected by this, especially

in the meat processing towns.  Emporia, at one time had as many a 1500 Somali’s living there until the Tyson plant closed. Residents there can tell disturbing accounts of daily interaction in various businesses, offices, etc. many times treating the local women as lower life forms. The immigrants were moved to Western Kansas meat processing areas. The Somalians are very closed culturally and do not assimilate well. They have been historically unwilling to take many important medical treatments including regimes for tuberculosis, even when provided by local health clinics. They also struggle with other immigrant populations as well who may settle close to these areas.

Al-Shabaab, Arabic for “The Youth”, is an Islamist Jihad organization recruiting scores of youth through the mosques in these areas. Minneapolis-St. Paul has a population of 90,000 from which to draw. The recent Al-Shabaab attacks in Nairobi, Kenya saw at least 5 members with American identification, one of which was from the Kansas City area. A 2011 report listed 50 known Somali-American members in Al-Shabaab.

Sharia is not a Threat?

21 09 2013

When Kansas debated and passed American Laws for American/Kansas Courts in 2012, one of the arguments against it was “It’s a solution looking for a problem”.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) used the same mantra against the Missouri Legislature this year, which narrowly failed to over-ride Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of SB267 on Wednesday according to this article at Missouri Lawyers Weekly.  (H/T Creeping Sharia)

The Kansas City, Missouri attorney Ahsan Latif has hung out his shingle specializing in Sharia Law.  Little surprise here considering that just a few miles to the West at Kansas

KU Sharia Handbook

KU Sharia Overview Workshop Handbook

University Law School there are classes that teach Sharia to aspiring young law students.  The textbook reads like you would expect; revised history and a sanitized theological discussion, soothing the non-inquisitive mind and ignorant spirit that its just “freedom of religion” and no different than Jewish Halakhah or Catholic Canon.  Of course, the sanitized Sharia version leaves out all the gory stuff like dismemberment for thieves and pow’s, execution for apostates (o8.1; “When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.”), homosexuals (p17.1 “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.”), wine-bibbers (p14.2-1, “Scourge whoever drinks wine…if he drinks it a fourth time kill him.”) atheists (o9.0 “The Caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim.”), and anyone of the Jewish or Christian persuasion who does not “submit” to the rule of Islam.  Sharia also obliges the Muslim adherent, male or female, to circumcision (e4.3), and despite Muslim claims to the contrary, there is no age limit for marriage of girls.  A high percentage in the Islamic world are given (for dowry) in marriage by their fathers under the age of 16, many before puberty, such as the recent case in Yemen resulting in the death of the 8 yr old child.  This is not uncommon in Sharia controlled states. But the sanitized version will treat this as an outlier, a regional or custom related practice, when in reality under sharia, the family determines the age.

Touted as mainly for use by Muslims for “family matters”, the sanitized version also leaves out the fact that a woman’s testimony is worth half the value of a man’s and she rates behind any male heirs who get the first shares of the estate right after the mosque,  and a rape victim is generally to blame for her plight and she could be shamed, outcast or worse.  It is not uncommon for rape victims to be beaten or stoned for adultery, fornication, and/or “honor killed”, under sharia as discussed in this article by Hasan Mahmud.

The Sharia that is taught at KU and is shown to the general public also whitewashes Jihad as the “inner struggle”, ignoring the fact that this one line is cherry picked from 8 pages of directives concerning the Jihad (Holy War, o9.0) “to war against non-Muslims…signifying warfare to establish the religion (Islam)…” and presents Hadith’s like Bukhari quoting Muhammad as saying, “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat . If they say it, they have saved their blood and possession from me, except for the rights of Islam over them.”  The remaining headings under “Jihad” are titled: “The Obligatory Character of Jihad”,  “Who is Obliged to Fight in Jihad”, “The Objectives of Jihad” (“The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…[and] fights all other people until they become Muslim.”), “The Rules of Warfare”, “Truces”, “The Spoils of Battle”. This section on “Jihad” is immediately followed by, “Non-Muslim Subjects of the Islamic State (Dhimmi)”.  Now I ask you, does that sound like that very personal, struggle within ones own self to submit to Allah and maintain one’s faith?

One other important aspect to Sharia is that it codifies lying, or “deception”, in order to advance the cause of Islam (r8.2) and stay out of trouble with one’s wife!  Aside from the obvious advantage of keeping the wife deceived, “Taqiyya” (deception) is employed especially when Muslims are outnumbered, as a minority of a host society, in order to gain the trust and deceive the host, until a majority of Muslims can use politics, education, or force to overpower it.  Sound familiar yet?  Click here for more on Sharia.

[Shaira quotes and references from: “Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”, by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, accepted by Islamic Scholars around the world as the authoritative English translation]

You see, the objective of Islam is not to be equal, just as CAIR co-Founder Omar Ahmad stated, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

Then there is the proposed “Blasphemy Law” that is being called for by Muslims around the world, which would make it a crime against humanity to criticize Islam.  Immediately after Barack Obama gave his infamous speech, declaring “The future does not belong to those who would slander the prophet” at the 2012 United Nations General Assembly, in the wake of the Benghazi terrorist attack (which he and Hillary Clinton blamed on an anti-Muhammad video), Muslims from around the world and closer to home made the hue and cry for freedom of speech to be made criminal.

Muslims encourage stifling of free speech

Muslims encourage stifling of free speech

The Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City posted a link to a petition on their website encouraging visitors to sign on, petitioning “The President of the United States: To sponsor a bill that outlaws any action that may insult one’s religion”.  (The petition got a whopping  351 signatures.)  While the President hasn’t actually sponsored legislation to curtail free speech, he has enacted policies within the many bureaucracies, including DHS and the DOJ, which are threatening American’s freedom of speech.  The Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) immediately petitioned the UN to pass the same ordinance.

You can be sure this will not be slowing down anytime soon.  CAIR and cohorts are like sharks with blood in the water.  Once a breech is made, a flood will ensue.  In fact the flood gates are open and this breech will not be closed under this government. While “American Laws for American Courts” is good law and so far, effective as to it’s intent, it is only as good as our legal system which is becoming increasingly compromised.

American’s (non-Muslim that is) must learn why Islam is detrimental to all of Western Culture and the basic freedoms that we have enjoyed for so long.  Islam is indeed, “The Great Black Beast”, a cloud hanging over head that is going to become more oppressive unless we learn to reject it, and once again embrace the true God which has been the source of all that is good and just in our culture thus far.

If we do not, our children and grandchildren will never know what we lost.





More Dangerous than bin Laden? Protestors to Descend on Gulen’s Mountain Fortress in Pennsylvania

30 08 2013

I have been writing about Fethullah Gulen on this site for a few years now, just recently including an article about a recent demonstration organized by Armagan Yilmaz, one of many Turkish-Americans who were trying to attract some media light on the Gulen (Islamist) agenda here at The Protest That Wasn’t , which was overshadowed by the trial of George Zimmerman.
Thanks to The Counter Jihad Report, included on my blogroll at right, for posting this article by Dr. Paul Willams.

The Question of the Decade: Why Does Obama Support the Muslim Brotherhood?

26 08 2013

The following article is written by Kurt Schlichter, writer, lawyer, veteran Army Officer.  First appeared on Townhall.com.  

I have included the article here because his title question has been nagging me as well and I agree with every word Kurt wrote here.

Why is Crushing the Muslim Brotherhood a Bad Thing?
By Kurt Schlichter

Here’s a wacky, outside-the-envelope idea that we just might want to give a shot – let’s try defeating our enemies. It’s bound to work out better than protecting and empowering them.

The Egyptian Army is taking tough stand against the Muslim Brotherhood. It is backed up by an Egyptian people who rapidly tired of the Islamofascist freak show a minority of them elected. The Army, while losing many of their own, killed a lot of the insurgent Brothers. For some reason we’re supposed to be upset.

I just can’t work up a lot of caring because a pack of murderous subversives whose declared goal is returning the globe to a permanent state of Seventh Century Bedouin theocracy tried to fight it out with a tough, well-armed and patriotic Egyptian military and got their teeth kicked in.

Let me stake out what, inexplicably, seems to be a minority position here in the United States: I want to see the Muslim Brotherhood decisively and permanently defeated. I don’t care if they surrender or die, as long as they lose.

Maybe I’m just not as attuned to the nuance and subtlety of the situation as our political elite. Maybe I don’t care deeply about freedom like they do, with my two deployments actually defending freedom hardly comparable to their above and beyond the call of duty posturing on talk shows.

Maybe I’m just too simplistic. After all, in my years in the infantry I was taught that you find the enemy, fix him in place and destroy him. As a lawyer, no client ever came to me and asked me to ensure the creep who launched the frivolous lawsuit against him walked out of court happy. I never got into a fight on the playground that ended with a hug.

As unpopular as it is in the rarified circles of our squeamish elitists, defeating our enemies still seems like a pretty good plan. But then I’m not burdened with the doubts so many elitists share about the essential legitimacy of pursuing America’s national interests.

At some level, many of these people feel that we Americans – we Westerners in general – deserve to lose. I don’t share those doubts. Our enemy is evil, plain and simple, and it needs to be beaten.

The Muslim Brotherhood plus the jihadi sociopaths associated with it are most certainly our enemy. How do we know? Because they tell us so.muslim_brotherhood_1 (1)

The Protest That Wasn’t (…in the News)

18 07 2013

While all of America’s Mainstream Media (MSM) outlets had their cameras trained on the George Zimmerman trial in Florida awaiting the jury’s decision, and just a few hours before Americans across the country streamed into the streets in protest of that verdict, there was another protest under way in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania.

130 people, many of Turkish origin or Turkish descent, were protesting Fethullah Gulen, an Islamic cleric, who came to the US in the late ’90’s to escape the then secular government who wanted him for sedition. Gulen had been arrested and served jail time previously for the same charge many years prior.  I have written a series called “Turkish Connection”  which give some background and history on Turkey’s once secular government established by Kemal Attaturk in the early 1920’s, which has now been Islamized since Gulen’s AKP party took control of the Parliament  in 2007 and both the President and Prime Minister are AKP as well.  Charges were dropped against Gulen in 2008.

(You may have heard of the recent protests in Istanbul and Ankara which have lasted for weeks and still continue in some degree, regardless of lack of American media attention, to protest Erdogen’s Islamist government which is dragging the country back under Sharia Law.)

You see, up until WW1 the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) dominated all the Middle East and was the seat of the Islamic Caliphate.  The Islamists are now in power in government once again and want it back!

fethullah-gulen

Fethullah Gulen

 

Fethullah Gulen has been very influential in the Islamist movement in Turkey, in spite of his residence in the US for the last 14 years.  He owns many media outlets there and organized and established many schools there. But his influence does not stop in Turkey.  He has established a plethora of Turkish groups and charter schools in the United States as well as many other countries.  This excerpt from a previous article I wrote in 2010:

“The Gulen Institute, Institute of Interfaith Dialog, Turquoise Center, and more locally the Raindrop Turkish Houses, along with others either directly or indirectly affiliated with Gulen have, as their apparent mission, to seek out leadership positions and officials at all levels of government and shape bonds of friendship and trust by providing a myriad of social functions from breakfasts to award dinners, to summit meeting with dignitaries and civil servants alike. One of the frequent provisions to these folks is the all expense paid trip to Turkey for the official and family members for a vacation of a lifetime. Some elected Kansas legislators recently returned from one such junket.

On the world stage, the Institute has hosted many high profile names such as James Baker, Kofi Annan, Madeline Albright, and received praise from Bill and Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, and others.

FGC (Fethullah Gulen Community) built and runs hundreds of schools and seven universities around the world. Just one phalanx of what is known as “education jihad”, these schools mainly focus on secondary and college level students, imposing and inciting discipline and good social order, (that’s all good, but…) all the while extolling the virtues of the Islamic religion. This is a calculated effort and will indeed have huge effects on American culture and society in a generation or two. There are currently 130 such schools inside the United States.” 

These are mostly, if not all, in the form of charter schools, utilizing US taxpayer money for funding scattered across 26 states.  Other funding comes from international foundations such as Cosmos Foundation, based in India and according to this article in the NY Times, contracts for building them mount into the scores of millions of dollars for contractors, many with roots in Turkey.  Many of these schools, such as the 42 in Texas, operate under the Harmony Public Schools name.  Several of these schools have fallen under Federal investigation for misuse of funds.   The teachers are also Turkish and come here on H1B visa’s specifically to teach in Gulen’s schools.

The Saylorsburg protests were reported only locally as in the Pocono Record:

“Protesters came from across the U.S. to draw attention to Gülen’s residence in Saylorsburg. He is a polarizing figure in Turkey whom critics accuse of trying to turn the country into an Islamic regime from a secular democracy.

Men, women and children waved Turkish flags, often emblazoned with the face of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, founder of the republic and secular hero in Turkey. Some also held American flags and posters with slogans in English and Turkish.

“USA wake up, sharia is here,” read one, warning of sharia law. “Stop stealing our taxes for your jihad,” another said.

Birgul Oncu, of New York, said she hoped the protest would make Americans more aware of who Gülen is and his influence in Turkey and in America through charter schools affiliated with the Gülen movement…

Protesters said they were in favor of a secular Turkey, and in solidarity with protesters on the streets of major Turkish cities over the last few weeks who have criticized Turkey’s leader for what they see as an Islamization of the country.

Huriye Altan, of Long Island, said she is an American citizen of Turkish origin whose husband fought in the Vietnam War. She said the protesters were not anti-American, but fighting what she said is Gülen’s misuse of tax dollars from charter schools connected with the Gülen movement…

Ersin Bayraktar said he came with family from New York City and is an American citizen.  “He is trying to control the politics and the future of Turkey,” he said. “And he is using our country, the United States, as his base.”

Armagan Yilmaz, who organized the protest, led Turkish chants and held up posters of young people he said had been killed by forces under Gülen’s control.”

The commanding State Police officer at the protest commented of his appreciation for the peaceful attitude of the group, and one protester thanked the officer for the troopers’ attitude saying “In Turkey the police are violent”.

Jihad? No Jihad here, move along! (Part 1)

14 03 2013

“If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make any sound?” If Islam invades a society and no one reports it, is it really happening? 

ontherise

IN THE midst of all the debate and distraction that has grabbed the attention of the American people over the last year, it seems that the “Islamic Colonial Movement” (ICM) in the United States has increased it’s intensity.  While we were busying ourselves with partisan primary elections, general elections, and whatever new “crisis du jour” is currently perpetrated upon the minds of America, from school shootings to “fiscal cliffs”, from draconian threats upon Constitutionally recognized unalienable rights to “Sequestration”, ICM has been steadily and aggressively stepping up their agenda. We are now beginning to enter into the 4th of 5 phases in the Muslim Brotherhoods plan for the Islamic invasion of America as laid out by Gaubatz and Sperry in Muslim Mafia.

  • Phase I: Establish an elite Muslim Leadership and raise Islamist consciousness in the community;
  • Phase II: Create Islamic institutions that the leadership can control and form autonomous Muslim enclaves;
  • Phase III: Infiltrate America’s political and social institutions forming a shadow state; escalate conversions; manipulate mass media to remove language offensive to Islam;
  • Phase IV:  Open hostile public confrontation over U.S. policies, riot, make militant demands for special rights and accommodations;
  • Phase V:  Wage final conflict and overthrow (jihad).

The first established Muslim Brotherhood organization in the US was the Muslim Students Association in the early 1960’s.  Until then there was scant evidence in America that Islam even existed.

Nation of Islam

Wallace Fard Muhammad (Wallace Dodd Ford) founded the only preceding “Islamic” named organization in America in 1930.  This organization was borne out of a quasi-Islamic cult known as the Moorish Science Temple which combined beliefs from Buddhism, Christianity, Freemasonry, and other religions besides Islam.   The first time I ever heard of anything Islamic was family members discussing the conversion of the boxer Cassius Clay, who took the Muslim name “Mohammad Ali”.  Shortly thereafter, I remember hearing the names “Malcom X, Kareem Abdul Jabbar (formerly Lew Alcinder), and something called “The Nation of Islam” (NOI), a popular anti-establishment political movement that had run parallel to the civil rights movement, apart from Martin Luther King.   NOI is seen as “heretical” by true Islam, but has had interesting intercourse with the likes of Moammar Ghaddaffi of Libya, who is known to have funded NOI projects, and Sudan as well as Iraq and Iran.  NOI’s leader Louis Farrakhan was offered $1 billion by Ghaddaffi. In 1996 Farrakhan was quoted as saying, ““God will not give Japan and Europe the honor of bringing down the United States. This is an honor God will bestow upon Muslims.”

This common objective has been enough, for at least through the 1990’s, for the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist minded anti-American organizations and nations to use the NOI as a handy tool, especially in urban America.  (Many of the earlier converts to NOI who became more serious about their foray’s into Islam eventually left NOI for more orthodox Sunni teachings, i.e. Malcom X, Mohammad Ali).  Today NOI is pretty much a laughing stock to true Muslims and no longer needed to advance the Islamist cause, although don’t be surprised to see NOI become involved in Jihad when the time comes.  I had a debate online with a young NOI member who told me he was going to kill me as soon as Farrakhan gives the order to begin the work of reparations.

Entering Phase IV

In case you have any doubt that the  Islamic Colonial Movement  has turned up the heat allow me to review a few news items that weren’t worthy of much mainstream media coverage over the last few months. January 31, 2013 marked the 7th annual “Texas Muslim Capital Day“, an event not exclusive to Texas by the way where, according to World Net Daily, the Dallas-Ft. Worth CAIR Director Mustafa Carrol opined, “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.”  (Most states are seeing such activities at their statehouse’s during legislative sessions these days.)

Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is the ‘point of the spear’, or should I say the ‘edge of the scimitar’ in the “Culture Jihad” in North America, as declared by the Muslim Brotherhood.  CAIR director Nihad Awad, among other CAIR executives and co-founders Ibrahim Hooper and Omar Ahmad, were also executives for the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), the mother group of CAIR and one of many US based Islamic groups named as “un-indicted co-conspirators” in the largest terror finance trial in US history, United States vs Holy Land Foundation, which was found guilty (along with its 5 executives) on 108 counts of providing support to terrorists, tax fraud, money laundering and conspiracy.  IAP was closely affiliated with HLF which was established to provide Hamas support.  CAIR, IAP, HLF, and Hamas along with other mainstream groups such as Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), North America Islamic Trust (NAIT), Muslim American Society (MAS), and Muslim Students Association (MSA) are all subgroups of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Another of these groups is MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Council) who pressured Department of Homeland Security to cease profiling air passengers who come from those countries likely to be home to Islamist radicals.  By the end of 2010 MPAC had trained 2,200 Transportation Safety Officers (TSO) in showing proper respect to Muslim travellers when passing through airport security, as well as proper handling of the Koran.  

Not that MPAC had anything to do with it, but just recently news broke that a USAF Chaplain was awarded the bronze star for his heroic work developing a powerpoint program which schools US Military and civilian contractors going into Afghanistan on showing proper respect for the Koran and elevating sensitivity to “what constitutes Islamic religious material”…“When a Muslim writes down even a few verses from the Quran on a piece of paper,that immediately gets that same protected status.” This action came swiftly on the heels of the accidental burning of Koran’s in Afghanistan by US troops, which had been used to pass written messages between detainees.  No such sensitivity training required concerning the handling of the Bible, however, after hundreds of Bibles were ordered burned by US troops to avoid offending our gracious Afghani hosts.

Freedom of Speech

The ICM in America continues to repress freedom of speech, particularly when it comes to criticizing Islam.  Last year in Dearborn, MI. Christians holding signs and witnessing were stoned and driven out of the Arab Festival, by over a hundred Muslim kids hurling filthy language along with rocks, bottles, water, urine, crates, eggs and anything else they could grab, while their parents were looking on.  Dearborn police couldn’t spare 2 officers to protect the Christian group, who were legally assembled, but employed 15 to escort them out of the area, making it plain that they, as sign holders were the threat, not the people attacking them, emboldening the riotous crowd.

On September 11, 2012 the American Ambassador to Libya was killed, along with three other Americans, two of which fought valiantly to the death protecting many other Foreign Service personnel, fighting  for hours, waiting for the White House to give the order to send rapid response teams (who were ready to deploy) to their aid.  The order never came, and all those teams could do was pick up the pieces.  Immediately the White House set forth a propaganda machine blaming a cheaply made, little exposed (until then it had received a few hundred hits) film trailer for inciting the entire Middle East, resulting in protests in Egypt, Yemen, and other places, and ultimately causing the death of these 4 Americans in Libya.  That propaganda  has been proven to be blatantly false, but the producer of the film was arrested, just as Sec. of State Clinton promised the father of one of the Navy SEALs who died behind his machine gun waiting for Washington.

The Obama administration held to that theme for almost 3 weeks and President Obama made it the centerpiece of his United Nations speech on Sept. 25th, 2012, when he said, “The future must not belong to those who would slander the Prophet of Islam.”  The following excerpt is from my previous post on that speech:

“Only under Islamic Law, ala the Sharia, can someone be charged with slander by criticizing Muhammad, or Islam, or even Muslims.  In America you can criticize any religious figure, book, government official, teacher, neighbor, or family member without fear of retribution.  It is an essential and inherent right, and the Founders understood freedom of speech to be so, in order to arrive at the truth of any matter and specifically to maintain personal liberty without fear of an oppressive governmental authority.  In Islam, Sharia is the government.”

Free speech indeed.  The President’s stern declaration warning anyone who dared to “slander the prophet” quickly emboldened the “Culture Jihadi’s” from the ICM and the screenshots below are from the Islamic Society of Kansas City who posted a petition to urge the President to pass a “Blasphemy Law” in the United States of America!

The text of the ISGKC petition, directed to the President, begins with, “The undersigned Board Of Directors and members of the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City (ISGKC) urges you to sponsor a bill that outlaws any action that may insult one’s religion…when the allowance of “free” speech incites violence it should be banned…The film is repulsive to the sensibilities of Muslims and offends the religion of Islam in multiple ways; by denigrating the seriousness of Islam, our Prophet and the Muslims in general.  We believe that it would be in everyone’s interest to ban such actions from reoccurring.”  And then the final nail, “…We condemn the violence and feel that, in spite of the First Amendment of the U. S. Constitution, action may be necessary to pass such a bill or, at least, censure such actions in order to calm the current situation as well as prevent future re-occurrences.”  Almost rings of a threat, doesn’t it?  Paraphrased it could read, “If you want to prevent future violence you’d better punish those who blaspheme Muhammad, Islam, or Muslims.”

The thing that startled me is that they actually see an ally in this President.  They seem to know him better than the average voter.  This assault is not just happening here on the national level, but the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is working this same angle in the United Nations. (OIC represents the 56 Islamic states around the world and is seeking their own seat on the UN Security Council.)

Who is ISGKC? Well, that is the Kansas City chapter of ISNA (see above) and close affiliate of CAIR (also above), who is also under the umbrella organization of The Muslim Brotherhood, the major force in the ICM in North America.

I’m not finished yet…wait till we address education and other fronts in the Jihad on America.  Next time.
