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.

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!!!

3 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Islam

18 12 2015

Many Americans still are confused about Islam, thanks to propaganda from Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR, MPAC, ISNA, ICNA, Muslim Students Assn, etc.

This video says in 9 minutes what I’ve been saying the last 9 years.  Take a look!





Victory for Freedom of Speech

2 11 2015
On Wednesday, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals completely reversed a lower court’s decision and ruled in favor of Evangelical Christians who were arrested for disturbing the peace at the 2012 Arab Festival in Dearborn, Michigan.  The Christians had bottles, eggs, and other items hurled at them by Muslims for publicly preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  A short video of this episode can be found here.
During this festival, a group of Muslims approached the Christians and asked to hear about the Gospel. The Christians obliged and began sharing about the Bible, Jesus, and their faith.  Other Muslims became angry and assaulted the Christians for their speech.  The police ended up arresting the Christians, not the Muslims.
The case, Bible Believers v. Wayne County, was brought by the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) on behalf of the Christians.
On August 27, 2014, a divided, three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit dismissed the civil rights lawsuit, finding the violent response of the Muslim hecklers justified the Wayne County sheriffs’ order to the Christians they would be arrested for disorderly conduct if they did not leave the festival area.
Yesterday, the Sixth Circuit ruled in favor of the Christians on every issue, completely reversing the lower court opinion, and directing the court to enter judgment in the Christians’ favor.
In its decision, the Sixth Circuit ruled the County and the two Deputy Chief defendants were liable for violating the Christians’ First Amendment rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion, and for depriving the Christians of the equal protection of the law. The court ruled the individual defendants did not enjoy qualified immunity, and the County was liable as a municipality for the constitutional violations.
In its opinion, the Sixth Circuit stated, in part:
“In a balance between two important interests-free speech on one hand, and the state’s power to maintain the peace on the other-the scale is heavily weighted in favor of the First Amendment. . . . Maintenance of the peace should not be achieved at the expense of the free speech. The freedom to espouse sincerely held religious, political, or philosophical beliefs, especially in the face of hostile opposition, is too important to our democratic institution for it to be abridged simply due to the hostility of reactionary listeners who may be offended by a speaker’s message. If the mere possibility of violence were allowed to dictate whether our views, when spoken aloud, are safeguarded by the Constitution, surely the myriad views that animate our discourse would be reduced to the standardization of ideas by the dominant political or community groups. Democracy cannot survive such a deplorable result.
 
“When a peaceful speaker, whose message is constitutionally protected, is confronted by a hostile crowd, the state may not silence the speaker as an expedient alternative to containing or snuffing out the lawless behavior of the rioting individuals. Nor can an officer sit idly on the sidelines-watching as the crowd imposes, through violence, a tyrannical majoritarian rule-only later to claim that the speaker’s removal was necessary for his or her own protection.”
 
In short, this was a complete victory for the Constitution and for all freedom-loving Americans who enjoy the protections of the First Amendment.
The AFLC is first and foremost a public interest litigation firm, which aggressively seeks to advance and defend America’s Judeo-Christian heritage in courts all across our Nation.  The AFLC’s mission is to fight for faith and freedom through litigation, education, and public policy programs.
A short video detailing AFLC’s mission and accomplishments can be seen here.
AFLC is comprised of attorney Robert Muise, a combat veteran Marine Officer and expert in Constitutional law, and attorney David Yerushalmi, one of the nation’s most knowledgeable attorneys on national security, Constitutional law, as well as Sharia (Islamic Law).
AFLC states on their website:  “The strength of our Nation lies in its commitment to a Judeo-Christian heritage and moral foundation and to an enduring faith and trust in God and His Providence. AFLC seeks a return to America’s founding commitment to receive God’s continued blessing to preserve the soul of this great Nation.”
This ruling demonstrates there are still bastions of sanity in the American judicial system where liberty under law still reigns in America, and where judges committed to justice win over the progressives trying to destroy our nation.
Let us celebrate this significant victory today and raise a glass to the courage of the Americans who withstood the attack, the AFLC for its work to defend our liberties, and the Court for doing what it should always do – rule judiciously.
John Guandolo, UTT




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!!





Catastrophic Failure

4 06 2015

I have written much on this site about the failure of the United States Government to define its enemies, namely fundamentalist Islam, and the tactic of terror used in jihad.  There is no way to win a war against an enemy you refuse to name.

Stephen Coughlin was an inspiration to me many years ago to get involved in exposing the Islamic agenda by educating people.  When I first met him he was speaking with John Guandolo, and arranged for him to return a few years ago.  His background in national intelligence and expertise in Sharia Law have kept Major Coughlin at the tip of the spear in counter-jihad, and his latest work with Center for  Security Policy has been invaluable to America in the continued fight to educate the American public to the danger of Fundamentalist Islam in our very midst.  The current administration has increased the threat by importation of this deadly ideology through it’s failed immigration policy, and by purging anyone, such as Coughlin, who defines the enemy as that enemy defines himself.

Major Coughlin, I salute you, and thank you for your continued diligence. Please watch the short video clip below.

As the Media Trilobites once again flounder about trying to bring their version of the “news” to the viewer, the coverage of the latest big event involving the Islamic State, the media are stumbling all over themselves bringing their profuse apologetic narrative to a fever pitch, which coincides perfectly with President Obama’s narrative that “ISIS is not Islamic!!”

Muath al-Kaseasbeh, 26, by the Islamist “Islamic State”, has been hijacked by those who would rather “use a crisis” to further their own agenda.  That young man is the same age as my own son (a USMC Sergeant), and the pilot died in the service of his King and country, fighting an enemy who will, if not stopped, take not only Syria and Iraq, but also Jordan, just as they will Saudi Arabia and the rest.  The pilot, while himself a Muslim, is considered apostate, and was fighting in the service of an Apostate King, in the eyes of the Islamic State and Caliph Al-Baghdaddi.

Apologists all over the news networks, both British and American, spent seldom mentioned this story without profusely making the point that “There is no mention in Islam for this kind of barbarity!” “This is proof that ISIS is not Islamic!”  Al Jazeera English even joined in the chorus with an editorial from a California State University professor calling ISIS a “nihilistic death cult acting in the name of Islam…”  Shoot, I’ve been calling Islam a death cult for years.

It seems that with every savage instance of Islamic Terrorism, from 911 up to every sordid beheading video that IS releases, the media is more concerned about a “potential backlash against Muslims”, than the butchery itself!  The “Backlash” that never happens!  Perhaps those Muslims who may be concerned about becoming a victim of a “backlash” might want to be more concerned about the butchers because the Caliph looks upon any Muslim who desires to integrate into Western Society and enjoy its freedoms, as one of two things: Apostate, which according to Sharia “deserves to die”, or Jahili, which is a back-slidden Muslim, and if non-repentant, also may die.

Muslim Brotherhood‘s own Seyyid Qutb writes all about this Jahili in his “Milestones“, the vanguard publication for the modern Islamic Revival, published 1965.  Qutb explains that Muslims must repent and remove themselves from that Jahiliyyah (a state of ignorance) leadership which has enticed Muslims into submitting to earthly, man-made rules and rulers, instead of submitting to Allah by means of following his laws (Sharia).  This theological doctrine is the root of everything we are witnessing in the Islamic world today.

Muslims are not to commit allegiance to a nation or state or geographic area.  (This is why there is little or no national loyalty in Islam.) Neither is a Muslim bound by any commitment or loyalty or oath to non-Muslims. Only to Allah does one claim or pledge allegiance.  Only through Islam is any relationship, contractual or filial valid.  Qutb writes,

“A Muslim has no country except that part of the earth where the Shari’a of [Allah] is established and human relationships are based on the foundation of relationship with [Allah]; a Muslim has no nationality except his belief, which makes him a member of the Muslim community in Dar ul Islam; a Muslim has no relatives except those who share the belief in [Allah]…” [p. 108, 109]

In the closing paragraphs of Milestones, Qutb conjures macabre images referring to his title:

This intricate point requires deep thought…to whatever country or period of time they belong; for this guarantees that they will be able to see the milestones of the road clearly and without ambiguity, and establishes the path for those who wish to traverse it to the end…Then they will not be anxious, while traversing this road ever paved with skulls and limbs and blood and sweat, to find help and victory…” [p. 158]

The Trilobites were finding “scholars” and “experts” wherever they could drag them out to reassure that “burning a human is not acceptable in Islam”.  They continued this for hours, expressing “how barbaric” this mode of execution is, and this is proof that ISIS is not Islamic.  Really?  Is it more barbaric than sawing a mans head off with a dull knife?!

Burning is indeed not only an accepted means of execution, it has a history in some Islamic applications.  Apostacy is an especially grievous sin against Islam, and in 1400 years there has never been an Islamic society which has not enforced the capital laws against leaving Islam for another religion, or no religion at all.  You see, Sura (Quran) 2:256, “There is no compulsion in religion…”  is abrogated by 9:29, commanding to fight non-muslims until they are subdued (dhimmi).

The Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL) is ruthlessly following the model of Islamic conquest that was practiced by Abu Bakr, Muhammad’s (the prophet) top lieutenant and most trusted friend.  He gave his young 6 yr old daughter Aisha to Muhammad to wife, making him the prophet’s father-in-law, and was Muhammad’s first convert outside the family.  Immediately after Muhammad’s death in 632 AD, the tribes began to quit Islam, becoming apostates, and refusing to pay the zakat (required alms of Muslims).  Abu Bakr thus became the 1st Caliph and began a systematic military campaign that swept across the Arabian Peninsula, known as the Ridda Wars, or the Wars of Apostacy.  Within 2 years he had put down or executed those Muslims who refused to pay, even though they practiced the prayers, referring to them as apostate because they failed to practice all 5 pillars of Islam.  Therefore their blood was on their own hands.

In a letter sent out to the various apostate tribes, Abu Bakr warned that, “the Apostle of Allah…struck whoever turned his back to him until he came to Islam, willingly or grudgingly.”  And then that, Allah had called him (Abu Bakr) ” to fight those who deny Him“, and that Abu Bakr “will not spare any of them he can gain mastery over, but may burn them with fire, slaughter them by any means…take women and children…nor shall he accept from anyone anything except Islam.” Within 2 years Abu Bakr had brought the “apostate” tribes back under his rule, and had sent his generals to conquer the Sassanids (Persians) in Iraq and Persia.  This was a very speedy and overwhelming conquest in which Khalid’s light cavalry could swoop down on a city and own it before the indigent armies could respond.  The Caliph then declared Jihad against the Byzantine Christians.

Abu Bakr only ruled for a bit over 2 years and was the 1st of the “Four Rightly Guided Caliphs”, the other 3 of which led short, bloody reigns as well.  These “Four Rightly Guided Caliphs” were all personal companions of Muhammad’s, and are yet today highly revered as men who closely followed in the steps of Muhammad.

Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, via Wikipedia

It is no accident that the current Caliph took this name – Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.  This man holds a PhD in Islamic Studies from the University of Baghdad and has been supervising and enforcing the Sharia since the mid-2000’s.  He is indeed an expert on Islamic Law (Sharia).  His job as Caliph is to punish apostates and carry jihad to non-believers who refuse to embrace Islam.  If you deny this, you deny 1400 years of history.  You have to be an imbecile to refuse to make the connection of true Islamic doctrines and theology to fundamentalist Islamic militant groups such as IS.

However, we are dealing with the Trilobites; a media organism who has no knowledge or desire to investigate history beyond their last bowel movement, which is incidentally about the same consistency of what they report. Jordan’s military, just like Saudi Arabia, exists pretty much to keep the Royal Families safe.  Hardcore movements against Islamic State are not going to be part of the program for either country.  Jordan may divide shortly with a lot of internal upheaval and Saudi will be soon to follow.  The military for both of these countries are paper tigers, perhaps Jordan’s a little tougher.

Any true security or stabilization in the region is going to have to come from one of 3 sources: USA, Israel, or Russia.  President Obama isn’t interested, despite the fact that Jordan is probably the most moderate Arab country in the region, obviously the most stable and is a pretty good ally to Israel.  Obama keeps throwing up a straw man argument that it’s either continue our ineffective airstrikes or send in 300K ground troops, and that’s not an option of his.  He will give aid but no Middle Eastern leader trusts him now anyway, enough to depend on him.

Israel knows it is the ultimate target and continues to monitor the progress of IS and has attacked positions in the Golan area of Syria/Lebanon.  Saudi Arabia is depending more and more on Israel for its own security and Jordan is working with Israeli military also.

Yep, it’s gonna get pretty sporty…





So is ISIL (ISIS, Islamic State) Islamic or Not?

26 09 2014

Incidentally, ISIL is probably the more accurate acronym to describe the terrorist army advancing across Syria and Iraq, setting up the new Islamic Khilafah (Islamic State, which I wrote about back in 2011). ISIL stands for the Islamic State in the Levant. The Levant is that region in the Middle East often referred to as the “Fertile Crescent”. This region extends from the rivers of Iraq through Syria, northern Jordan, Lebanon, and Israel. Yes, Israel…

Seems that ISIL is having trouble convincing President Obama that they actually do represent the fundamentals of Islam, as they raze the landscape of non-Muslims wherever they go, just as Muhammad did in the 7 Century. Jihadwatch.org published this graphic by Nicolai Sennels which puts it all in very simple terms. Judge for yourself – (H/T to Mr. Sennels and Jihad Watch)

Immigration is key to the “stealth jihad” says Muslim convert to Christianity

22 09 2014

I have been warning of the “stealth jihad” being perpetrated upon America, and in particular upon her Churches, for many years now. The whole “Interfaith Dialog” movement was begun in 2002, right after 911, in order to “reform” Islam’s image. Sadly, this is the ONLY reformation that Islam has or will ever incurr because the theology that drives the ideology known as Islam is not debatable. Any Muslim who speaks of “reformation” or changing Quran or Sharia is automatically ostracized or labeled “Apostate”, which status qualifies for the death penalty. A pretty good method of assuring that the fundamental doctrines of Islam can never be “moderated”. Satan did his work well when he developed this “Beast”!

Islamization in Progress

25 08 2014

Anyone who doubts that Islam is colonizing the United States, Europe, Australia, along with anywhere else it can get a foothold must watch this video about European cities. As the Muslim population approaches 40% in many cities in Belgium, non-Muslim Europeans are finally recognizing that Islam is not present to co-exist, it means to dominate.

England now has 85 Sharia Courts within its borders. There are places in London that British Police do not tread. The startling thing is that not only the British Government has allowed this to happen, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, has backed its role in British Society!

I will be posting a short series of videos here that demonstrate the astounding developments in this Islamic colonization in no uncertain terms.

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…

 





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.





Barack Obama: Foreign Policy Disaster

1 07 2013

Just a short two years after President Obama stepped into Egypt’s political theater supporting the ousting of Hosni Mubarak, his choice for President of Egypt is now being asked to leave.

Exactly a year ago the President called the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, Muhammed Morsi, to congratulate him on his win in the election replacing former President Mubarak.  Mubarak was no friend to the Muslim Brotherhood, same as his predecessors dating back to Nassar who actually had Brotherhood members arrested, executed, or run out of Egypt after their failed attempt to assassinate him.  Anwar Sadat was not so lucky, being killed by Brotherhood members within his own army in 1981.

Yesterday, June 30, estimated “millions” of Egyptians flooded the streets of Cairo and other cities to tell Morsi to “Get Out”.  This follows a year of increasing Islamist governmental oppression foisting Sharia Law upon the citizens of Egypt and failure to improve economic conditions, and persecution of those who speak out against Islamism including the Coptic Christians, secularists, and “moderate” Muslims alike.  At the time of this writing there were 7 dead, 253 injured in Sunday’s rallies, and protesters had set the MB Headquarters afire, while President Obama has steadily increased Brotherhood access to American Government agencies since his own election in 2008.

Obama, along with most of the Western media dhimmi’s, where touting the “Arab Spring” of 2011 as the new era of freedom, giving both moral support and/or military aid to the

H/T @skytwitius via twitter

Protesters in Egypt 6/30/13 H/T @skytwitius via twitter

likes of Islamist MB groups in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Yemen, Bahrain, etc.  Egypt is perhaps the most strategic nation due to proximity to Israel and the Suez Canal, and has, since Anwar Sadat, been an ally to the US.  The people of Egypt may be rethinking that association now in light of the fact that Barack Obama has become the first American President in history to support an Islamist government regime for Egypt.

The now laughable “Red Line” threat to Syria and ensuing policy there has led to further erosion of American standing in the Middle East.  Now the US Government (including Dem/Rep Congress) is on record as supporting and arming Islamist radicals who butcher their foes like pigs and eat their organs raw, and beheading others including a Catholic Priest.  Not sure how we got to the point that the Russian President Vladimer Putin is questioning the American choice to support such barbarism, giving our arch-rival the high moral ground on the global stage.  I do not advocate supporting Assad but since we waited so long to see where the Muslim Brotherhood was going to be on Syria, can’t we just stay the hell out of one of these?  Israel can take care of itself, and would probably feel much more secure with out this Administration constantly creating “situations” for them.  We already have a thousand Marines in Northern Jordan as “advisers” and Obama just recently deployed 400 US Army troops to Egypt, trained in “riot control”.  The US has an additional 400 troops in Turkey manning Patriot missile batteries along the Syrian border.

Just a few days ago Turkey’s PM Erdogen pulled the rug out from under the Obama plan to channel weapons through Turkey to the Syrian rebels by shutting that corridor down.  Erdogen told Obama he was afraid of retribution from the Russians if he continued to allow aid to the Syrian Rebels.  From DEBKAfile:

“Until now, the Erdogan government was fully supportive of the Syrian opposition, permitting them to establish vital command centers and rear bases on Turkish soil and send supplies across the border to fighting units. He has now pulled the rug out from under their cause and given Assad a major leg-up

This about-turn is a strategic earthquake – not just in terms of the Syrian war but also for the United States and, as time goes by, for Israel too.”

Iraq has devolved into Shia vs. Sunni sectarian violence since US withdrawal, leaving its government questionable.  We will be completely withdrawn from Afghanistan by the end of next year, currently holding “talks” with Taliban leaders there.  Are we that naive to believe the Taliban will simply put their AK’s down and leave the villagers to go back to growing poppies?  (Sometimes I think the reason we invaded Afghanistan was to get the product from those poppies and distribute it to Washington.  They sure act like they’re stoned out of their gourds up there!) Saudi Arabia now has free access to any airport in the US; Unlimited flights with DHS deferring to the Saudi government to screen those travelers to the US.

Today, since the “Arab Spring” began, the Muslim Brotherhood has gained control of much of North Africa, bringing their chartered goal of the “Khalifa” (Islamic Caliphate) much closer to fruition.  MB continues its efforts in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria, working toward the caliphate.  Turkey’s Islamist AKP (Justice and Development Party) Government wants the Caliphate, which until 1922 had been held by the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) for 500 years.  The Saudi’s want the Caliphate, which according to Sharia Law is the common directive to every Muslim.  The Saudi King, after all, is charged with advancing the Islamic religion to the world. He is the keeper of the faith and protector of the Kaaba, in Mecca, the most holy site in Islam.  The Saudi Flag bears the “Shahada” declaration of faith, “There is but one god Allah, and Muhammad is his Prophet” along with the sword of Islam.

For all practical purposes, it would appear that the US President also wants the caliphate.  Vladimer Putin, however, does not want the caliphate.  He understands that a unified Islamic Caliphate will command the petroleum reserves of the entire Middle East, not to mention strategic and commerce lanes.  He also understands that Syria is the keystone in forming that confederacy.  And don’t forget Iran!

Will the Syrian civil war ultimately lead to Russia becoming militarily engaged bringing Iran and Turkey against Israel, at the end of the day?

This chessboard is looking more like Ezekiel 38 every day.  Is this American President helping to bring it?

His policies are setting the Middle East on fire.





Department of Justice: Insulting Islam may be Federal offense

3 06 2013

One day soon I may be a criminal for simply exercising my First Amendment right of freedom of speech and of the press.  My crime? …Criticism of Islam.

According to the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice, it may soon be a federal offense to point out the Theological incongruity, the Sociological paradox, and the Political hostility that Islam poses to the freedoms guaranteed by the founding documents of the United States of America.

Bill Killian has been the US Attorney for the Eastern District Court, Tennessee since October, 2010.  Mr. Killian will speak on June 4 at an event sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee, apparently assuring them that:

“…federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

The DOJ political appointee adds in the article that the upcoming presentation will also focus on Muslim culture with a special emphasis on the fact that the religion is no different from others, even though some in the faith have committed terrorist acts…”  via JudicialWatch.org

This move is by no means the first by the Obama DOJ to establish a protective status for an ideology hostile to, not only American society, but the US Constitution itself.  In 2010, Attorney General Eric Holder told the “Muslim Advocates”, an organization that encourages its members to not cooperate in federal terrorism investigations, that he was grateful for their partnership.

Then he touted his agency’s many efforts to strengthen the government’s relationship with Muslim and Arab-American communities, including a reinvigorated commitment to civil rights that prioritizes the prosecution of violence motivated by “religious intolerance.” The Justice Department has investigated hundreds of hate crimes against Muslims, filed a legal motion supporting a controversial Tennessee mosque and numerous discrimination lawsuits on behalf of Muslims nationwide, Holder bragged.  –  via JudicialWatch.org 

I wonder, Mr. Attorney General, how many hundreds of hate crimes against Jews or Christians have you investigated, and how many discrimination lawsuits have you filed on behalf of Christians or Jews?

It is enough that the President’s new NASA Administrator told Al Jazeera TV that Mr. Obama wanted him to reach out the Muslim world, and then that the Internal Revenue Service was, whether by direct White House order, or “dog whistle” encouragement, targeting Obama’s political enemies by audit,  or simply stonewalling conservative non-profit applications  while Muslim non-profits endured much less scrutiny, but the fact of the matter is that the United States Department of Justice is now actively advocating for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) now UN passed Resolution 16/18 which prohibits speech critical to Islam, written, spoken, or in art form.

It all figures in to the equation though.  Last week President Barack Obama declared the “war on terrorism” over, and according to the new CIA Director and Muslim convert John Brennan, the vernacular has changed, eliminating the terminology, “war on terror”, “Jihadists”, and “global war”, opting only to confirm that America is at war with Al-Qaeda, and did not want to risk the implication that “the United States is at war with Islam itself”.

Somebody tell that to Islam.

I have argued the President Obama is not a Muslim ever since he became president. This in spite of his “misspoken” statement about “my Muslim faith” in the George Stephanopolis interview,  bowing to the Saudi King, his statements at Cairo, the “Shahada Ring” that he wears as his wedding band, and mounting pro-Islamic domestic and foreign policies.  I even wrote a post declaring “Obama is not a Muslim”.  However, in light of his latest “foux pas” lamenting the loss of his youthful appearance of when he “was a strapping young Muslim Socialist”, and the use of Cabinet level government officials to make sure “The Future does not belong to those who would slander the Prophet”, I must say I cannot maintain that argument.

I wonder what America’s “re-training” Gulags will look like?  Somehow I suspect I will see one from the inside, perhaps sooner than later.  Especially when I make statements like this:

Islam is the religion of Satan and Muhammad is a false prophet.  Muslims are victimized daily by this scourge of wickedness and their only hope is Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God,  just like the rest of us!

You know where to find me.





Milestones in Review – Reposted

30 05 2013

There has been quite a lot of interest in this article recently, so I have republished it for any new “Defining the Narrative” readers, or those who may have missed it or would like a refresher.  One of my first articles, it has continued to grow popularity.

I recently read the book Milestones by Seyyid Qutb.  He is considered by some to be the father of the modern Islamic revolution.220px-Qutb

Milestones was written from an Egyptian prison in 1964. Qutb had spent 2 years in America several years prior, and reported that his prejudices had been confirmed concerning American depravity. America was ripe for the picking.

Qutb’s book wasn’t his first, or his longest work, but perhaps Milestones has had the most impact on the modern world. Although some attribute the modern “Islamic Revolution” to this book, that was not exactly the outcome that Qutb desired.

Actually, Islamic Revival was his desire and purpose. Milestones was to be the “vanguard” publication to accomplish this. By initiating a revival of Islam among those who profess it, the natural outcome would then be an alteration of the course of human history. Revolution would not be necessary, but world conquest would be at hand. Revival of the fundamentals of Islam within the culture itself would make Islam irresistible in both principle and on the battlefield. A revived and truly Muslim population in the cause of Allah would be invincible.

Islam had, according to Qutb, become compromised by moderates and liberals (Muslim) who, for various reasons, embraced Western Culture and prosperity. Obviously the development of Middle Eastern oil fields was responsible for most of this merging of the two worlds, and the petro-dollar brought an ancient culture roaring forward into the industrialized 20th century with so much speed, there was no time for gradual adaptation. Yet today, there is a stark contrast within these countries, and without the petro-dollar they would shrivel back into the desert survivalist culture of a mere century ago.

Seyyid was disturbed by the fact that Muslims, during the first half of the 20th Century, were with a few exceptions, content to “live and let live”, professing Islam while immersed in ‘Jahili’ (the state of ignorance of guidance of Allah) culture. A Muslim should withdraw from all Jahilayyah relationships and become joined completely to Islam just as Muhammad and the Companions had disavowed all ties to polytheism and its adherents. A Muslim cannot be true Muslim, submitted to Allah, and retain any ties to non-Islamic influences. Qutb laments, “This is why the true Islamic values never enter our hearts, why our minds are never illuminated by Islamic concepts, and why no group of people arises among us who are of the caliber of the first generation of Islam.” He then adjures, “We must return to that pure source from which those people derived their guidance…[their]concepts of…the universe, the nature of human existence…Our aim is first to change ourselves so that we may later change the society…this system which is fundamentally at variance with Islam…”

Qutb’s call to all Islam was a return to Fundamentalism, that being the founding principles of Islam. This “revival” within Islam would then lead to political reformation in Islamic countries, bringing to bear those governments which had established within their own constitutions; that Islam is the official state religion and Islamic jurisprudence (Shari’a) is the law of the land. This move to “right” Egypt’s secularized government along with his fellow members of “Muslim Brotherhood” is the reason he was imprisoned and consequently executed by “The Arab Republic of Egypt” in 1966.

Egypt was but one of the Islamic Republics which had not implemented Shari’a as enumerated in its own constitution. Turkey is the most widely known which has managed, even today, to maintain a modicum of separation (though currently very tenuous) between religion and state; for practical purposes a secularized government. The United States has, in fact, assisted in the establishment of two of the latest Islamic Republics of the world; Iraq and Afghanistan, complete with constitutions which name Islam as the official religion.

Seyyid Qutb goes on in Milestones to express disdain for Muslim apologists who insist that Jihad” is simply defensive war.  He refers to them as “defeatists”, and explains thatJihad is the means by which to establish the Divine Law (Shari’a).  Jihad, according to Qutb as well as Koran, is offensive action that “tries to annihilate all those political and material powers which stand between people and Islam…It is not the intention of Islam to force its beliefs on people, but Islam is not merely ‘belief’.” Then he clarifies, “…in an Islamic system there is room for all kinds of people to follow their own beliefs, while obeying the laws of the country which are themselves based on the Divine authority (Shari’a).”

In other words, you can believe whatever you want, but you will live according to Shari’a LawThis is the mission of Islam defined: Not to convert the entire world to Islamic belief; but to bring the entire world under submission to Shari’a, or Islamic Law.

Muslims are not to commit allegiance to a nation or state or geographic area. Neither is a Muslim bound by any commitment or loyalty or oath to non-Muslims. Only to Allah does one claim or pledge allegiance.  Only through Islam is any relationship, contractual or filial valid. “A Muslim has no country except that part of the earth where the Shari’a of [Allah] is established and human relationships are based on the foundation of relationship with [Allah]; a Muslim has no nationality except his belief, which makes him a member of the Muslim community in Dar ul Islam; a Muslim has no relatives except those who share the belief in [Allah]…”

Dar ul Islam is the “house of Islam” which “is that place where the Islamic state is established and the Shari’a is the authority…” The rest of the world is the “house of war” or Dar ul Harb. “A Muslim can have only two possible relations with Dar ul Harb: peace with a contractual agreement [hudna or truce], or war.”

Seyyid further explains, “But any place where the Islamic Shari’a is not enforced and where Islam is not dominant becomes [Dar ul Harb]”.

In the closing paragraphs of Milestones, Qutb conjures macabre images referring to his title, “This intricate point requires deep thought…to whatever country or period of time they belong; for this guarantees that they will be able to see the milestones of the road clearly and without ambiguity, and establishes the path for those who wish to traverse it to the end…Then they will not be anxious, while traversing this road ever paved with skulls and limbs and blood and sweat, to find help and victory…”

This book, the “vanguard” of modern Islamic Fundamentalism, written in 1964 has inspired Jihadists, Mujahidin and Shahada (“martyrs” aka suicide bombers) for 45 years. Seyyid Qutb is considered Shahid by fundamentalist Muslims around the world. I have read several books from and on Islam and would recommend Milestones as essential reading for one who desires to understand the purpose and designs of modern Islam and the resolve of Islamic fundamentalists.





The Grand Deception: Muslim Brotherhood in America

6 11 2012

I have written numerous articles here about the Islamic invasion of America and the major operative organization in that endeavor, the Muslim Brotherhood.  Furthermore I have published documents such as “The Strategic Goal of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America”, which was captured by FBI in Virginia and used as evidence in the “U. S Govt. vs Holy Land Foundation” trial of 2008, exposing numerous Islamic groups and organizationsin the USA as terrorist financiers around the world, and a few other articles that I have not authored.  The article below is one such piece from Investors Business Daily.

Steven Emerson

Steven Emerson is possibly the foremost authority on Islamic Jihad in America, and has been at the task of exposing the threat since his first documentary aired on PBS back in 1994.  His subsequent works such as American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us  have been a gold mine for “counter jihad”  patriots and curiosity seekers alike, who desire to learn more about the subject.  Emerson is the Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

This editorial was posted on Investors Business Daily website on November 1.  I have added the bold highlights.  H/T to IBD

Islamofascism: A new documentary exposes the Muslim Brotherhood as a “subversive menace” hiding in plain sight. Forget the Mideast; this group threatens us in our backyard.

In “The Grand Deception,” producer and award-winning journalist Steve Emerson spends 70 minutes documenting how the radical Brotherhood’s tentacles have reached deep inside the U.S. political system over the past few decades.

The footage Emerson obtained of these Islamists speaking candidly behind closed doors is stunning. They may mouth pleasantries to our face, but behind our backs they’re plotting our destruction.  Emerson showed them praying in Congress or breaking bread in the White House as “peace-loving moderates,” then revealed them just days later damning America and calling for violent jihad against us and our allies.

The treachery of Siraj Wahhaj, one of the Brotherhood’s celebrated imams, is most chilling.  At first, we see him humbly giving the invocation before Congress as the first Muslim clergyman to do so.  Within days of that prayer, he’s back at his Brooklyn mosque spewing venomous hatred about America and non-Muslims.

“You know what this country is? It’s a garbage can,” Wahhaj snarls in a sermon to his flock. “It’s filthy.” He prays America “crumbles” and is replaced by Islam. Then he calls for jihad. You see one clip, then the other, and the deceit and duplicity are just breathtaking.

We also see, in another scene, prominent Brotherhood leader Abdurahman Alamoudi — once a White House fixture and State Department goodwill ambassador — publicly denouncing terrorism. “We are against all forms of terrorism,” he claims. In another scene, we see the same man, now safely in front of a group of Muslims, exalting Hamas and Hezbollah.

Then he’s heard at a mosque exhorting the faithful to transform America into “a Muslim country, even if it takes 100 years.” Finally we overhear him grumbling in an FBI wiretap that al-Qaida didn’t kill enough Americans in the African embassy bombings.

Today, Alamoudi is behind bars for plotting terrorism. The U.S. learned he’d been secretly raising funds for al-Qaida only after he’d infiltrated the highest echelons of our government. And only after he’d created the Muslim chaplain corps for the Pentagon that’s still in use.

The documentary exposes a very clever — and insidious — enemy, more so than the communists. It operates, as one interviewed FBI agent describes it, a “tangled web” of front groups and mosques all hiding behind religion and the First Amendment, and all lavishly funded by the Saudi government.

Another agent interviewed on camera recounts how he saw a banner at an Islamic Society of North America event in the Midwest that read: “DEATH TO ISRAEL. DEATH TO AMERICA.” An ISNA official, Sayyid Syeed, is caught on tape saying, “Our job is to change the Constitution of America.”

Agents described the alphabet soup of Brotherhood fronts — including ISNA and CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) — as a “Trojan horse.” Indeed, these groups have been regular guests at the Obama White House, despite being named unindicted terrorist co-conspirators in 2008.

To eradicate this internal threat, a President Romney will have to clean house. He’d also be well-advised to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, then use RICO statutes to break up its subversive U.S. racket.

“The Future Must Not Belong to Those Who Would Slander the Prophet of Islam”

1 10 2012

“The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam.”

A friend had called and told me of this quote by the President of the United States and I must admit, I did not believe it.  This friend calls me often to discuss world events and usually has his facts right.  He is the only person I know who can read a newspaper, listen to the television, and carry on a coherent conversation all at the same time, and tell you detailed information from all three sources.  I am jealous!

I asked him to see if he could confirm that with another source while I began to research myself.  A news break confirmed it, and I still couldn’t believe it!  I began to text a few close and trusted friends who hadn’t yet heard it.  Then a while later they began texting back that “…Obama also spoke against violence against Christians.”  So I watched the entire speech at the UN myself. Then again.  And finally a third and fourth time, rewinding and replaying several key points.  So here is my analysis of Barack Obama’s speech before the UN General Assembly on Sept. 25, 2012.

The underlying theme of the entire speech was “Tolerance”.  This should not surprise anyone, anywhere, as it is the prevailing theme of Leftist/Progressive/Socialist ideology around the world, particularly in the West.  The only problem with those who preach tolerance, is they aren’t.  Most of the time when someone demands your tolerance of something be it speech, morality, or behavior, is not asking for your mere “tolerance” of them, but demand your codification of whatever it is. But I digress!

While the “overt” theme was tolerance and “mutual respect”, the main subject matter related directly to the stupid little Youtube video which made fun of Muhammad and Islam.  It looked like something high school kids might come up with. Very poorly done and amateurish.  I question not only the source of production, but also the fact that United States Government officials are bending over backwards to disavow the stupid thing.  As Shakespeare would say, “Methinks he doth protest too much”.

The President did the right thing by formally paying tribute to Ambassador Chris Stevens killed by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.  Next he posed a valiant effort in standing up for freedom of speech, especially as we know and understand it in America, while recognizing that “not all countries” share our belief in free speech.

Mr. Obama then addressed the violent reactions to the video, blaming the actions of a few backward extremists for the attacks and calling them to leave the cause of violence  and politics of destruction behind and join with us to create a better future….Kumbayah!  Oh, I have no problem with what he said, and he said it well, but either his naivety or his chronic narcissism has clouded his view of the real world.  Especially, the Islamic world.  You see, these “extremist impulses” which “divide the world into us and them”, are part and parcel of the Sharia which all Muslims are obligated to establish so that there is no more “us and them”; that is Dar al-Harb (“House of War”-anywhere that is not under Islamic control) has been absorbed by Dar al-Islam  (“House of Submission”) and “Allah’s religion shall reign supreme!” (Quran 8:36)

No Mr. President, this violent Islamic extremist activity has been going on now for over 14 centuries, and will not ever cease until the 2nd Coming of Christ!  It is not the result of the infidel Americans casting aspersions upon the “prophet”, nor the result of American or even Western intervention in Islamic lands or Colonialism of 3 centuries gone by.  It has been going on since the “Prophet” was exiled from Mecca in 623 AD!

Back to the speech.  Nearly 20 minutes into the speech, Mr. Obama began a series of comments about “the future”.   Now, lest I be accused of taking the lead quotation out of context, I will include the whole of these comments here in block quotes and follow each phrase with commentary in [brackets].

The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt, it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted ‘Muslims/Christians, We are One!’.

[I have no problem with this statement and commend the President for drawing attention to the Coptic’s plight at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood.]

The future must not belong to those who bully women, it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons.  [Again, the words of the President are spot on.]

The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources, it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs, the workers and business owners who see a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the women and men that America stand with. Theirs is the vision we will support.  [Not quite sure what Mr. Obama is driving at here but will assume that he is speaking to historic European Colonialism.]

The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam. But, to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated,  or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.  [I want to come back to this!]

Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shia Pilgrims.  [Let’s do that!]

It’s time to heed the words of Gandhi, “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” [Gandhi also said, “A religion which takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them is no religion.”]

In analyzing this portion of the speech, which in my opinion was the most interesting, I consulted with an attorney friend of mine.  As we went through the points about “The future must not belong to _____”, she brought to my attention that each of the crimes pointed out; violence/assault/murder (specifically here against the Copts) against any  people, beating/bullying women, stealing, these are all crimes recognized quite objectively by any legal system.

Slander on the other hand, i.e. “The future must not belong to those who would slander the Prophet of Islam.”, is quite subjective and as Muhammad has been dead for, well a long time, a dead man cannot be slandered or defamed.  Especially under American jurisdiction, where an opinion is freely expressed about anything or anyone.  Free Speech according to our First Amendment of the Constitution.  Legally, a plaintiff charging slander must prove in court that he/she has been defamed by the defendant at a personal cost, be it economic or social.  Muhammad cannot do that and since no one is alive who actually knew him to speak on his behalf, the charge is not provable.  If I call Muhammad a pedophile I am not slandering, because he actually had sexual intercourse with a 9 year old girl, molesting her much earlier at the age of 6.  If I call him a robber and a thief, I am not slandering because his raids of caravans are documented.  If I call him demon possessed, I am not slandering because Muhammad himself thought he was demon possessed and contemplated suicide.  If I call him an idiot, that is my opinion, and as such that is all it is worth.  Sharia cannot stand either historical fact or the opinion of a dissident!

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.

The other thing about this sentence in Mr. Obama’s speech is this.  This is a stand alone statement.  Anything that he adds afterward is merely window dressing, but taken at face value, all he is saying here is “if you condemn the slander of Muhammad you must also condemn hate.”  Hate, which presumably results in actions of desecration of icons, destruction of churches, or denying the Holocaust.  So are we to simply condemn the hate and not the action, or should we include hate as a crime, or what about prosecuting those who actually committed the crimes of destruction of property or causing personal injury?

Sometimes I wonder what planet these ideologues come from where they deny basic human instinct and behavior!  They never consider that aspect of human nature which, as fallen from the original state of Creation, is selfish, driven by his own lusts, and violent.  In the Psalms, King David writes the rhetorical question, “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?”  The answer of course is “Because they are heathen and people are vain!”   But David says it better, “The kings of the Earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, ‘Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.'”  Rebellion against God always results in destruction, whether personal, or national, or cultural.  Islam has chosen another god from the God of the Bible and the result is darkness, blood and pain, not only for those who are in it, but now it has come to all the world.

Barack Obama’s eloquent speech was just so much white noise in the chambers of the UN General Assembly.  Immediately following Obama, Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari demanded insults to religion be criminalized.  Over a dozen people were killed there in protests against the film, while they burned President Obama in effigy.  “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,” he said.

Mohamed Mursi, the new Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt echoed that sentiment on Wednesday.  “Egypt respects freedom of expression, freedom of expression that is not used to incite hatred against anyone,” he said. “We expect from others, as they expect from us, that they respect our cultural specifics and religious references, and not impose concepts or cultures that are unacceptable to us.”

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.

Outside the United Nations in New York, about 150 protesters demanded “justice” and chanted “there is no god but Allah” outside the U.N. building on Thursday. One placard read: “Blaspheming my Prophet must be made a crime at the U.N.

Islamic leaders in Dearborn, MI, held a protest on Friday, Sept 28, protesting freedom of speech, demanding laws that criminalize hurting the feelings of Muslims.

Yeah, me too…





Khilafah Conference 2012 in Chicago

7 06 2012

UPDATE: According to this article on the Daily Herald the Khilafah Conference was moved at the last minute.  After many calls and controversy, the “Meadows Club” which was to host the event, backed out.  The conference will now be held in Hickory Hills.  I find it extraordinary that Hizb ut-Tahrir is not on the Secretary of State’s list of  foreign terrorist organizations in light of the information I quoted below that Morocco has banned it as a “saboteur organization”.—Original article below:

In a previous article entitled “New Khilafah”  I explained how Islam is moving toward its “One World Government”,  and some history on the last Caliphate.  The Muslim Brotherhood was established in 1928 to restore that institution, and in 1953 another organization, Hizb ut-Tahrir was begun with that same objective.  We saw the “Arab Spring” unfold last year and the resulting move to re-establishing of Sharia in those formerly authoritarian or dictatorial governments is under way.  The move to unite the Islamic nation states continues to progress, and with Israel as the common nemesis, the fuel of hatred will not cease to advance the movement.  The Muslim Brotherhood continues to consolidate power in these areas, and has been following its planned strategy of “Culture Jihad” throughout the West, particularly in the United States. This document, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the Strategic Goal for the Group [MB] in North America”  which defines this plan was seized by the FBI from a Virginia mosque and entered in as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial of 2008.  The memorandum outlines a “settlement” strategy which is intended to “eliminate and destroy the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands, and by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated…” (p.7).

Image credit: Wikipedia

Hizb ut-Tahrir (Party of Liberation)  has gone so far as to criticize the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party in Egypt, “The Freedom and Justice Party”,  for being too moderate in the process in Egypt.  That’s a remarkable critique considering the calls from Egypt’s Brotherhood to void the peace treaty with Israel.

Hizb ut-Tahrir has been banned as a “saboteur group” in Morocco, and has gained new attention there just this week.  The following is an excerpt from Magharebia  a North African news website:

Hizb ut-Tahrir is a banned international Islamic party advocating the change of a “corrupt” society and turning it into an Islamic society. The party also embraces the Islamic call and jihad in hopes of realising the dream of a caliphate and the establishment of an Islamic state governed by the principle of halal and haram according to party supporters’ understanding.

Richid Elmounasafi, an analyst specialised in terrorism-related criminology, told Magharebia that “in its principles and major goals, Hizb ut-Tahrir is similar to many of the cells that were previously dismantled, such as the Ansar al-Mehdi cell led by Sheikh Hassan Khattab which was dismantled in August 2006 and which had the major goal of undermining the existing regime to establish the Islamic caliphate state.”

Nonetheless, Hizb ut-Tahrir will hold its 2012 America Khilafah Conference just outside Chicago at Rolling Meadows, IL on June 17th.  You can view their promotional trailer below.  Happy Father’s Day, America.  H/T Act! for America

Kansas Governor signs American Laws for American Courts Bill

26 05 2012

Friday afternoon, May 25, Governor Sam Brownback took a proactive step to secure Constitutional rights for all Kansans.  A bill that has been in process for about two years finally came to rest on the Governor’s desk after passing both houses of the Kansas Legislature in mid May.

The hardest fought battle was in the Senate after Committee leadership failed several attempts to stonewall and block the progression of the bill.   This law was actually dead three times during the process. Each attempt to stop it was met by a series of courageous individuals who stepped up and carried it on in the face of opposition from tenured committee leadership and media critics.  In a previous post, Kansas Passes American Laws for American Courts I detailed some of that process.

American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) underscores the American ideal of “all equal before the Law”. It is the reinforcing of the promises of government to guard and protect the individual rights and freedoms as granted under the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Kansas regardless of country or culture of origin, race, or religion.  It gives statutory direction to the Courts, which at times, without such laws to refer to, may use arbitrary means to reach a decision.

The HAMAS linked CAIR (Council for American Islamic Relations), a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate, had mounted its expected attack on Kansas.  They mounted a national campaign for Muslims to contact Governor Brownback and tell him to veto the bill.

What hasn’t made the news, to my knowledge, is that this bill has been endorsed by the American Islamic Leadership Coalition, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, President and Founder of American Islamic Forum for Democracy, and has been examined and ruled as Constitutional by the Congressional Research Service. Unlike the Oklahoma ballot initiative of  2010, it has yet to be challenged in court in any state where ALAC has become law.

Since the Legislature had adjourned (sine die) prior to the end of the usual waiting period, the Governor had to sign SB 79 in order for it to become law.  That might have been the more politically expedient action for him to take; allow it to expire without his signature.

Nonetheless, in spite of the mis-information, and sensationalist and even international campaign waged by CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, along with some uninformed citizens to marginalize the bill, proponents of the bill, the Governor and the overwhelming majority of the Kansas Legislature and Kansas citizens, the Governor chose to step up and make a public statement for individual liberties for every citizen, regardless of gender, religion, or cultural background.  Brownback will, no doubt, receive a tongue lashing from the media, left wingers everywhere, and pro-Islamist groups around the country and the globe.  He is not a newcomer to politics and to coin a phrase, that took some guts.

CAIR’s call to action lambasted the Kansas Legislature, and Kansas citizens, as Islamophobic, Muslim hating bigots, and that this law will forbid free exercise of Islamic religious beliefs.

Well, if your free exercise of your religious beliefs goes contrary to the Constitution, and existing Kansas and American Law, then I suppose that would apply.  Things like polygamy, slavery, inequity in legal status, stoning, suppression of the rights of other individuals (Muslim or non-Muslim), misogyny, yes, these things are contrary to our laws.

It’s sort of like driving the wrong way on a one way street.  It’s against the law, no matter who you are, or why you do it! Now if you get caught you can’t hide behind your religion, no matter what it is.

If your religious beliefs lead you to action that is legal under American or Kansas Law, such as your choice of diet, abstaining from alcohol or tobacco, pray 5 times a day (not blocking traffic), adhere to a dress code,  go to church on Sunday, synagogue on Saturday, mosque on Friday, or any other religious expression which complies with the law,  and does not infringe on the rights of others, knock yourself out!





Wafa Sultan, Ex-Muslima debates Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad

21 05 2012

The Sheik unequivocally defines Sharia Law and the Islamic world view.  He does not hesitate to point out the relationship between Dar al-Islam (House of Islam) and Dar al-Harb (House of War or non-Muslim lands),  “The relationship between us is either a pact of belief in Allah, or a peace treaty, or war.”  He goes on to define that peace treaty as a Dhimmi pact, where non-Muslims do not have equal rights with Muslims, because Allah has given the Muslim more rights and greater respect than the Khaffir (Non-Muslim).  Educated in Quran and Sharia since age of 5, Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad holds several degrees from Islamic Universities in Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) and is certainly an Islamic scholar by anyone’s standard.

Wafa Sultan, a medical doctor, who studied University of Alleppo, Syria, rejected her native religion of Islam when Muslim Brotherhood assassins riddled her professor with bullets in front of her.  A secularist, she now is a leading critic of Islam and was listed by Time magazine among the worlds 100 most influential people in 2006.  She has been quoted as saying, “The trouble with Islam is deeply rooted in its teachings.”   Watch this 8 minute video and understand the Islamic world view.
