Do Muslim countries represent individual freedoms and liberties or tyranny and oppression?
How does this compare with the Republic America's Christian Founders established, where all religions and secularists were granted liberty, because Biblical moral virtue was prominent?
Now with progressive political correctness prominent, unrighteous justice and tolerance without boundaries is diminishing freedom for Marxism, which will allow Islam to easily conquer.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Penetration of the Obama Administration Posted By Jamie Glazov On February 3, 2011 @ 1:00 am In Daily Mailer, FrontPage - Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Pamela Geller, founder, editor and publisher of the popular and award-winning weblog AtlasShrugs.com. ... She is the co-author (with Robert Spencer) of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.
FP: Pamela Geller, welcome to Frontpage Interview. Well, perhaps for those who are familiar with your work and with your book, it is not a big surprise for them that Obama has endorsed a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in a new, post-Mubarak government for Egypt. I would like to narrow in with you today about the Muslim Brotherhood’s penetration of the Obama administration. What can you tell us about this Islamist penetration of the White House?
Geller: Thanks Jamie. The first thing we need to realize is that the Muslim Brotherhood operates in the United States under a variety of names and organizational umbrellas. Technically, there is no “Muslim Brotherhood” in the United States. But the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others are – according to a document captured in a raid and released by law enforcement in 2007 during the Holy Land Foundation Hamas funding trial) – Brotherhood-linked organizations. FP: Right, and crystallize for us why we need to be concerned about Brotherhood-linked organizations in the U.S. Geller: Because, Jamie, that same captured document explains that the Muslim Brotherhood’s mission in the U.S. is “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
FP: And people with ties to these organizations are involved with the Obama Administration, right?
Geller: Yes they are, Jamie, in various ways. On the first day of his presidency, the President showed an eagerness to be friendly toward the Brotherhood: he chose Ingrid Mattson, president of ISNA to offer a prayer at the National Cathedral during inaugural festivities on January 20, 2009.
...FP: Ok, let us move on. Tell us more about the Muslim Brotherhood presence in the Obama Administration.
Geller: In June 2009, Obama appointed a Muslim, Kareem Shora, to the Homeland Security Advisory Council. Shora had been executive director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, a group that had generally opposed anti-terror efforts since 9/11 – as have all the Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups in the U.S. But more worrisome was Obama’s appointment of another Muslim, Arif Alikhan, to be Assistant Secretary for Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security. Alikhan is affiliated with the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), which is another highly deceptive Brotherhood-linked group.
The War Against the Christians by Cliff May - Imagine if Muslims in Europe were being arrested for nothing more than peacefully practicing their religion. Imagine if Muslims in South America were being sentenced to death for “insulting” Jesus. Imagine if mosques were being bombed and burned by terrorists in a growing list of Christian-majority countries. Now here’s what you don’t need to imagine because it is all too real: In recent days, Christian churches have been bombed in Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria and the Philippines. In Indonesia a mob of 1,000 Muslims burned down two Christian churches because, according to one commentator, local Islamic authorities determined there were "too many faithful and too many prayers." In Iran, scores of Christians have been arrested. In Pakistan, a Christian woman received the death penalty for the “crime” of insulting Islam; the governor of Punjab promised to pardon her – and was then assassinated for the “crime” of blasphemy. I could provide dozens more examples of the persecution and, in many cases, “cleansing” of Christians in what we have come to call the Muslim world. If the situation were reversed, if such a war were being waged against Muslims, it would be the top story in every newspaper, the most urgent item at the U.N., the highest priority of all the big-league human rights groups. What we have instead is denial. ...
Egypt’s Muslims attend Coptic Christmas mass, serving as ‘human shields’ By Michael Ireland Chief Correspondent, ASSIST News Service CAIRO, EGYPT (ANS) -- Muslims turned up in droves for the Coptic Christmas mass Thursday night (Jan.6), offering their bodies, and lives, as “shields” to Egypt’s threatened Christian community. Yasmine El-Rashidi, writing online for http://english.ahram.org.eg says that amidst clashes and threats, Copts feel marginalized in the Egyptian elections. El-Rashidi says that from the well-known to the unknown, Muslims had offered their bodies as “human shields” for last Thursday night’s mass, making a pledge to collectively fight the threat of Islamic militants and towards an Egypt free from sectarian strife. She states that: “We either live together, or we die together,” was the sloganeering genius of Mohamed El-Sawy, a Muslim arts tycoon whose cultural center distributed flyers at churches in Cairo Thursday night, and who has been credited with first floating the “human shield” idea. ...
9175 Dead Worldwide, Happy New Year! by Gadi Adelman - Now that 2010 is over the numbers are in. According to the Religion of Peace website here are the numbers for the year 2010: Total Islamic terror attacks: 1987. Total dead: 9175. Total of critically injured: 17436. Their home page sums up just last month nicely, So far this Christmas, Religion of Peace devotees have bombed a church in the Philippines, blown up 45 flood refugees waiting in line for Western food aid, plotted to bomb a Christmas tree lighting in Oregon and a recruitment center in Maryland, massacred 86 innocents in attacks on Nigerian churches, planned to poison American food buffets and implant bombs in human bodies, plotted the slaughterof civilians in Holland, London and a newspaper office in Denmark... and even set off the first suicide blast in Sweden, which was intended for Christmas shoppers. So when do we stop pretending that Islam is just another religion?
Are you eating food sacrificed to idols? American pastor sounds alarm on supermarkets, restaurants
Sleeper Cells in the USA by Dave Gaubatz According to this author, terrorist sleeper cells are already in place in America, waiting for the right moment to strike against the country.
Do Americans Really Care About Our National Security? by Dave Gaubatz - During my research of over 250 Islamic centers in America and in addition the ‘CAIR Project’ as described in our book ‘Muslim Mafia’, I found clear evidence there are many, many versions of Maj. Nidal Hasan (Fort Hood), Mohamed Mohamed (Oregon), and Hussein (Baltimore) who are plotting murderous attacks against our children in America. The media, our politicians, and senior law enforcement want Americans to believe these type of planned attacks are by ‘lone wolves’ and not part of a major plan by Islamic leaders. I will tell you - and I have no problem swearing under oath in a court of law - that 80% of Islamic centers in America are teaching their worshippers to commit these type attacks. I have the evidence, but again unfortunately our senior law enforcement, media, and politicians for the most part are paid off by the ‘Saudi government’ to keep this information away from American citizens. Who will suffer from the lies and deception that our government is intentionally keeping from Americans? As per the norm, it will be our children from all races, religions, and cultures.
...I am not a ‘WikiLeaks’ type of person. I went through the legal process to give our government time to take legal action against CAIR and their supporters who are advocating treason and sedition against our country. Their time is up. I will now begin taking one document at a time and begin providing them to the citizens of America. I ask the citizens to begin copying these documents and insisting their elected officials begin protecting our country and children. If Congress has time to hold hearings on meaningless ‘Steroid’ cases, they should earn their keep and hold hearings to protect our country. To sum it up: No - Americans do not care about the future of our country or our children. They care about their own selves and believe our government and elected officials will take care of them. Americans are living with a ‘False sense of Security’ and it will destroy our country…but more importantly it will destroy the futures of this country’s innocent children.
ISLAM...WHERE THE DEVIL IS ALWAYS IN THE DETAILS by Jim Kelly - This story demonstrates why nothing an Islamist says can be taken at face value. Every statement and utterance needs to be thoroughly analysed, or “unpacked”. Before anyone comments on the Muslimization of the USA and planet Earth...they should know of what they speak. They should read the Qur'an (Koran) quod.lib.umich.edu/k/koran/browse.html very carefully, look up DHIMMITUDE and TAQIYYA, and research Shariah Law. ISLAM a peaceful religion? ...NO. Moderate MUSLIMS?... No. ALL MUSLIMS BELIEVE IN THE QUR'AN (KORAN)! And what does it say? The following excerpts are just three examples that are anything but loving, civilized or peaceful. ...
In his book Fear God and Take Your Part, 1916, Theodore Roosevelt wrote: "The 7th century Christians of Asia and Africa...had trained themselves not to fight, whereas the Moslems were trained to fight. Christianity was saved in Europe solely because the peoples of Europe fought the Mohammedans who invaded." Teddy Roosevelt continued: "The civilization of Europe, America and Australia exists today only because the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization...that is, to beat back the Moslem invader."
Islamism is a Threat Posing as a Religion by Mervyn F. Bendle - The political ideology of Islamism is something that freedom-loving people should challenge at every opportunity, lest they forever lose their own liberty. This is the central message of an important new report released by the Center for Security Policy in Washington DC. Entitled Shariah: The Threat to America: An Exercise in Competitive Analysis - Report of Team B II (pdf), the study is the product of an extended period of research, analysis and debate, undertaken by a large team of security policy experts, which seeks to re-orientate American national security policy regarding the Islamist danger. In doing so it focuses on the core of Islam, its system of law, or "shariah", conceptualised as a totalitarian ideology akin to communism, Nazism and fascism, and pursued by Muslim supremacists who seek "to impose ... a global totalitarian system cloaked as an Islamic state and called a caliphate" (p.6). The report emphasises that the extremely aggressive Islamist campaign of "civilizational jihad" is not entitled to constitutional protection because it is not primarily a religious pursuit involving "the sacrosanct realm of private conscience and belief", but is a political project that "seeks to supplant our Constitution with its own totalitarian framework" governing every area of life (p.8).
THREE THINGS ABOUT ISLAM - English version of "Three Things About Islam" which was originally produced in the Netherlands. This is a must see for anyone who has questions about the core of Islamic beliefs. Islam has NOT been hiujacked.
Muslim Mafia gives itself away by Joseph Farah - When the Council on American-Islamic Relations decided to sue the people of Oklahoma for approving an amendment to their constitution prohibiting the use by state courts of international law or Islamic Shariah law, the Muslim Brotherhood front and terrorist-linked darlings of the U.S. media gave themselves away. CAIR has billed itself as a "civil rights" organization and a kind of anti-defamation league for Muslims. Yet, by taking this action, CAIR and its sponsors have all but admitted they would very much like to see Shariah law supersede or supplant the laws of the United States – as it has, by the way, in the United Kingdom, where Shariah law is used in dozens of Shariah courts. There simply is no other reason to contest the will of the people in Oklahoma. Oh, I know what CAIR contends is its reason for challenging the vote: that there is no threat of imposing Shariah law in the United States. However, that raises an obvious question: If there is no threat of Shariah being imposed, why bother challenging a law to ensure it doesn't? In fact, courts in the U.S. have already used Shariah law in their decisions – some of which have been graciously overturned. It's also worth mentioning that several members of the current U.S. Supreme Court have commented favorably on the notion of citing international or foreign law in their decisions – and some of them already have.
Shocking video captures brutal Islamic stoning 'This footage is unique, because Taliban-Pakistan tries to conceal such images' - Editor's note, the following video contains graphic images of violence and bloodshed. Following the stoning, a second, separate incident of violence is also reported, of an execution conducted for unspecified causes.
What is the Connection Between Muhammad and the Beheading of Hostages by Islamic Terrorists - Seconds before Abu Mus'ad Al Zarqawi cut off the head of the young American, Nicholas Berg, he said these words in Arabic: The Prophet, the master of the merciful has ordered to cut off the heads of some of the prisoners of Badr in patience. He is our example and a good role model. (Zarqawi, University of Georgia) As Al Zarqawi alluded to, the "Islamic precedent" of beheading prisoners (including non-combatants) goes back to the founder of Islam: Muhammad.
... One of the most well known accounts of Muhammad beheading prisoners was the Jews of Banu Qurayza... Islamic historian and apologist S.F. Mahmud in A Short History of Islam states: After the Meccans, the first people to give trouble were the Jews in Medina and its neighborhood. Not only did they openly scoff at the Prophet's teachings, but they conspired against the Muslims. They were a united people and rich. The Prophet had to organize a number of ghazwahs (holy wars) against them before they were subdued...the Prophet turned on the Jews and taught them a severe lesson" (Mahmud, A Short History of Islam, p17).
What was the "severe lesson"? The "lesson" was the enslavement of all women and children, the dividing as spoils of all property, and the beheading of all males who had reached puberty. The following narrative gives a concise account of the bloodshed: Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought up to him in batches. Among them was the enemy of Allah Huyayy son of Akhtab and Ka'b son of Asad their chief. There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900. As they were being taken out in batches to the apostle they asked Ka'b [ed. their ruler] what he thought would be done with them. He replied, 'Will you never understand? Don't you see that the summoner never stops and those who are taken away do not return? By Allah it is death!' This went on until the apostle made an end of them (Ibn Ishaq, 464). We do not know how many men Muhammad personally beheaded, but we know beyond doubt that they were all beheaded at his order.
SHOCKING VIDEO: How Islam Will Dominate America at Taxpayers’ Expense - Billed by school officials as a “tremendous opportunity” to visit a Boston-area mega-mosque, a middle school field trip turned out to be a taxpayer-funded Islamic indoctrination session. A parent videotaping the event gasps in horror as she watches several students from Wellesley Middle School join Muslims as they together prostrate themselves on the ground, praying to Allah. According to the permission slip that was sent out to parents, the purpose of the field trip was to “learn about the architecture of a Mosque and observe a midday prayer service.” (More at Americans for Peace and Tolerance)
Mosque of conquest? Exclusive: William Federer shares many examples from Islam's history of subjugation
Muslim groups are proposing a 13-story $100 million mosque in the most prominent spot in America – the heart of downtown New York City near the World Trade Center site.
Is this mosque a sign of America's tolerance, or is it a sign of Muslim conquest?
The past may hold answers:
In 630, Muhammad led 10,000 Muslim soldiers into Mecca and turned the pagans' most prominent spot, the Ka'aba, into the Masjid al-Haram Mosque.
In 634, Rightly Guided Caliph Umar conquered Syria and turned the Christians' most prominent spot, the Church of Job, famous for being visited by Saint Silva in the fourth century, into the Mosque of Job.
In 637, Caliph Umar conquered Hebron and turned the second-most prominent spot in Judaism, the Cave of the Patriarchs, into the Ibrahimi Mosque. (This was repeated by Saladin in 1188.)
In 638, Muslim generals Amr ibn al-As and Khalid ibn al-Walid conquered Gaza and turned the prominent fifth-century Byzantine church into the Great Mosque of Gaza.
In 638, Caliph Umar conquered Jerusalem. In 691, Caliph Al-Malik ordered the Dome of the Rock built on the most prominent spot in Judaism, the Temple Mount, followed by Caliph Al-Walid building the Al-Aqsa Mosque there in 705.
In 651, Muslims conquered Persia and turned Zoroastrian temples in Bukhara and Istakhr into mosques.
In 706, after Muslims took Damascus from the Byzantine Empire, Caliph Al-Walid turned the prominent Orthodox Church of St. John the Baptist into the Umayyad Mosque.
In 710, Gen. Muhammad bin Qasim conquered Pakistan, defiled the prominent Sun Temple in Multan, which house the great idol "sanam," and erected a mosque.

From 1250-1517, Mamluk Muslims controlled the Golan Heights and used the ancient Synagogue of Katzrin as a mosque.
In 1387, Turkish Muslims conquered Thessaloniki and turned the Katholikon Monastery and the Church of Aghia Sophia, which housed the relics of Saint Gregorios Palamas, into mosques, as Symeon of Thessaloniki recorded:
"The greatest number of the buildings of the churches fell to them, of which the first was the Holy Church of the Savior. … These were trampled underfoot and the infidels rejoiced in them. … Most of the religious buildings in the city were despoiled, while altars were demolished and sacred things profaned."
On May 29, 1453, Sultan Mehmet II conquered Constantinople and turned the great Byzantine church, Hagia Sophia, into the Ayasofya Mosque. The largest church in Christendom for a thousand years, the church's four acres of gold mosaics were covered with whitewash and Quran verses.
In 1458, Sultan Mehmet II conquered Athens and turned the Greeks' most prominent spot, the Parthenon on Acropolis hill, into a mosque. When Venetian Gen. Francesco Morosini drove the Muslims out in 1687, a cannonball hit the gunpowder stored in the mosque, blowing it up.
In the 15th century, Ottoman invaders turned Saint Clement's Macedonian Orthodox Monastery in Plaosnik, Balkans, into the Imater Mosque.
From 1519-1858, Muslim Mughal rulers gained control of India and turned over 2,000 Hindu temples into mosques, including demolishing the Temple of Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya, the birthplace of Rama, and replacing it with the Babri Mosque.
India's Mughal Muslim ruler, Jahangir (1605-1627), wrote in Tujuk-i-Jahangiri:
"At the city of Banaras a temple. … I made it my plea for throwing down the temple … and on the spot, with the very same materials, I erected the great mosque."

On Sept. 11, 2001, Muslim terrorists attacked the most prominent spot in America, the World Trade Center. In less than 10 years, the number of mosques in New York City has skyrocketed to over 140.
In light of history, reasonable citizens have a right to question if the mosque proposed at Ground Zero is a sign of America's tolerance, or a sign of Muslim conquest?
Thomas Jefferson and the Ground Zero Mosque By Gary DeMar - Speaking Friday August 13, 2010, at a White House dinner to honor Ramadan, the President told his audience, “Muslims have the right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country,” an obvious reference to the controversy surrounding the Ground Zero mosque. On Saturday, while spending the day in the Gulf, the president attempted to clarify his earlier remarks: “I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there. I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about.” Utah’s attempts at statehood were held up over the religious practice of polygamy. It wasn’t until Utah agreed to include in its constitution a ban on polygamy that the territory was considered for statehood. Statehood was officially granted on January 4, 1896. Prior to Utah’s statehood, the Supreme Court had ruled that “Bigamy and polygamy are crimes by the laws of all civilized and Christian countries” and “the spread and practice of polygamy is . . . . contrary to the spirit of Christianity and of the civilization which Christianity has produced in the Western world.” So contrary to President Obama, it’s not true that all people have “the right to practice their religion.” The First Amendment does not give unlimited freedom to individuals or groups who act in the name of religion, especially when that religion’s goal is the domination of the world or even a part of it by force.
...President Obama and other supporters of the Ground Zero Mosque appeal to our nation’s “founding,” in particular Thomas Jefferson. Here are some additional comments the President made on August 14 in reference to Jefferson: And tonight, we are reminded that Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity. And Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been a part of America. The first Muslim ambassador to the United States, from Tunisia, was hosted by President Jefferson, who arranged a sunset dinner for his guest because it was Ramadan—making it the first known iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago.
First, Islam is not noted for its religious diversity. Christians cannot evangelize in Muslim countries. Churches are burned while police do nothing. Muslims who convert to another religion can be executed. Even the presence of the Bible is prohibited by our own military and the behest of Islamic officials when American soldiers are deployed in Muslim nations: Bibles were confiscated and destroyed after Qatar-based Al Jazeer television showed soldiers at a Bible class on a base with a stack of Bibles translated into the local Pashto and Dari languages. The U.S. military forbids its members on active duty—including those based in places like Afghanistan—from trying to convert people to another religion. Reuters quotes Maj. Jennifer Willis at the Bagram Air Base, north of Kabul, who said “I can now confirm that the Bibles shown on Al Jazeera’s clip were, in fact, collected by the chaplains and later destroyed. They were never distributed.”
Second, President Obama’s favorable appeal to Jefferson is only part of the story. The Koran’s peace initiatives are Orwellian: “Submission to Islam is peace.” Peace is the absence of any religious or political opposition. This is the indisputable history of Islam as Paul Johnson writes: Koranic teaching that the faith or “submission” can be, and in suitable circumstances must be, imposed by force, has never been ignored. On the contrary, the history of Islam from Arabia was followed by the rapid conquest of North Africa, the invasion and virtual conquest of Spain, and a thrust into France that carried the crescent to the gates of Paris. It took half a millennium or reconquest to expel the Moslems from Western Europe. The Crusades, far from being an outrageous prototype of Western imperialism, as is taught in most of our schools, were a mere episode in a struggle that has lasted 1,400 years and were one of the few occasions when Christians took the offensive to regain the “occupied territories” of the Holy Land.
What did Jefferson learn from his study of the Koran? As early as 1786, Jefferson, who was serving as the ambassador to France, and John Adams, the Ambassador to Britain, met in London with Ambassador Abdrahaman, the Dey of Tripoli’s ambassador to Britain, in an attempt to negotiate a peace treaty based on Congress’ vote of funding. Peace would come at a price. If America wanted “temporary peace,” a one-year guarantee, it would cost $66,000 plus a 10% commission. “Everlasting peace” was a bargain at $160,000 plus the obligatory commission. This only applied to Tripoli. Other Muslim nations would also have to be paid. The amount came to $1.3 million. But there was no assurance that the treaties would be honored. In vain Jefferson and Adams tried to argue that America was not at war with Tripoli. In what way had the U.S provoked the Muslims, they asked? Ambassador Abdrahaman went on to explain “the finer points of Islamic jihad” to the Koranically challenged Jefferson and Adams. In a letter to John Jay, Jefferson wrote the following:The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.
Abdrahaman was paraphrasing the Koran’s “rules of engagement” found in the 47 Surah: “Whenever you encounter the ones who disbelieve [during wartime], seize them by their necks until once you have subdued them, then tie them up as prisoners, either in order to release them later on, or also to ask for ransom, until war lays down her burdens.” Unless a nation submitted to an Islamic nation, whether it was the aggressor or not, that nation was by definition at war with Islam. Jihad means “to submit.” A non-aggressing nation is still at war with Islam as long as it hasn’t embraced Islam. Islam’s goal is to conquer the world, either by the submission of one’s will or by Allah’s sword.
When President Jefferson refused to increase the tribute demanded by the Islamists, Tripoli declared war on the United States. A United States navy squadron, under Commander Edward Preble, blockaded Tripoli from 1803 to 1805. After rebel soldiers from Tripoli, led by United States Marines, captured the city of Derna, the Pasha of Tripoli signed a treaty promising to exact no more tribute. President Obama is not the first person who has tried to whitewash Islam’s history with America. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), a Muslim, took his constitutional oath on Jefferson’s copy of the Koran. How ironic given Jefferson’s disdain for Islam’s principles. There’s a reason the “Marines’ Hymn” begins with these words: From the Halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli. The line “To the shores of Tripoli” refers to the First Barbary War, specifically the Battle of Derne in 1805. Jefferson, embroiled in a war with Islamic terrorists in his day, commented, “Too long, for the honor of nations, have those Barbarians been suffered [permitted] to trample on the sacred faith of treaties, on the rights and laws of human nature!” Little has changed since Jefferson’s day. The Muslims of the Ground Zero Mosque will say one thing and mean another. (Click link for Endnotes)
John Quincy Adams versus Maureen Dowd by Alan Caruba - (Sunday, August 22, 2010) As this is being written, two rallies are being held in the pouring rain in New York, just outside the proposed site of the Ground Zero mosque. One represents people opposed to it and one with people who see no problem whatever in an Islamic house of worship a few steps from where Muslims, in the name of Islam, destroyed the Twin Towers and killed some 3,000 people.
That pretty much tells you how a particular mindset can either resist evil or fall victim to it. Some might say that “evil” is too strong a word with which to describe Islam, but let me take you back to 1830 and quote John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the United States. Referring to Muhammad, he wrote:
“Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent god; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. The essence of his doctrine was violence and lust; to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature. Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant...While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon the earth, and good will towards men.” ...
Editor’s Note: This article first appeared in the May 2010 issue of Townhall Magazine.
The Muslim Brotherhood is leading the way for radical Muslims to infiltrate American society and government. Their goal is simple: control the United States and impose Shariah law.
...In 1980, there were 481 officially recognized Mosques in the United States. Today, there are 1,209, with an estimated 80 percent of those funded and controlled by Saudi Arabia, where the official religion is virulently anti-Western Wahhabi Islam.
Sperry and Gaubatz’s "Muslim Mafia" exposes the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities in America using declassified FBI documents, FBI agent interviews, transcripts of telephone wire taps and thousands of internal documents smuggled out of CAIR headquarters by Gaubatz’s son, Chris Gaubatz, who posed as an American convert to Islam and was hired by CAIR. They demonstrate that the Brotherhood is now a worldwide central clearinghouse for virtually all Sunni terrorist groups, is operating inside U.S. mosques across the country and is in complete control of CAIR and its myriad subsidiaries.
And while the House of Saud attempts to portray itself as a loyal U.S. trading partner, the authors prove that it is actually financing and partnering with the Brotherhood, that it is actively undermining our national security, and that it controls CAIR and at least 46 other supposedly moderate Muslim front groups in the United States, along with countless other subsidiary shell companies. And for the first time, they expose the Brotherhood’s five-phase plan for dominating America:
• Phase I: Establish an elite Muslim Leadership and raise Islamicist consciousness in the community;
• Phase II: Create Islamic institutions that the leadership can control and form autonomous Muslim enclaves;
• Phase III: Infiltrate America’s political and social institutions forming a shadow state; escalate conversions; manipulate mass media to remove language offensive to Islam;
• Phase IV: Open hostile public confrontation over U.S. policies, riot, make militant demands for special rights and accommodations;
• Phase V: Wage final conflict and overthrow (jihad).
According to Sperry and Gaubatz, the consensus among counterterrorism officials is that the North American Brotherhood is already in Phase III.
The Islam I Left Behind by Amil Imani - Many Iranian ex-Muslims explain that they left Islam because they love life, beauty and the ancient Iranian cultural traditions. Islam forbids them all.
Kamal Saleem: A Muslim Cries Out to Jesus - He heard a voice call his name and saw a vision of Christ. This was miraculous, because up until then, Kamal was a Muslim. He was taught as a child that he would die a martyr and if he killed a Jew his hand would light up when he met Allah and liberty and freedom are idols and anti-Islam.
Brigitte Gabriel Tells How Islam Seeks to Take Over America (Islam in America - Part 4 of 6) -Thomas Jefferson once said that you can’t be both ignorant and free. Taking his warning to heart, TMLC has attached two videos of a portion of a speech by Brigitte Gabriel, one of America’s most informed and ardent foes of the internal threat of Islam. ISee also slam in America - Part 5 of 6
Is Sharia Law Inevitable in the West and America? Daniel Greenfield - Western liberals believe that most Muslims are moderate. Most Muslims, however, believe that the remedy for all social, political and moral ills lies in Islam. A believing Muslim, whether Westerners consider him an extremist or a moderate, will believe that Islam and the Koran have the solution for all of society's ills. Social problems are caused by a lack of Islam. In his worldview, Muslim countries can only repair their problems through Islam. And non-Muslim countries in the Dar al Kufr (Realm of the Infidels), Dar Al Harb (Realm of the Sword) are bound to be even worse off because they don't follow Islamic law – which means their only solution is Islam. In such a scenario, Sharia is inevitable because as Western liberals think of social reforms in terms of added government control, Muslims think of reform as added clerical control. This makes Muslims and Socialists seem like natural allies, at least for a time, because both confuse reform with centralization that takes individual liberties. Meanwhile the Western Liberal is deluded enough to think that any application of Sharia law will be moderate, when in fact it will be no such thing because the Muslim understanding of the world is radically different than the Western understanding of the world.
Pictures Worth a Million Scimitars -- /Christian Newswire/ -- If the pen is mightier than the sword. And a picture is worth a thousand words. What are these pictures are worth? Click here to view.
The Difference Between Jews and Muslims (Excerpts) How could the picture be ‘painted’ any more vividly? The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000, ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION or 20% of the world’s population. They have received the following (7) Nobel Prizes:... ...The Global Jewish population is approximately 14,000,000, Only FOURTEEN MILLION or about 0.02% of the world’s population. They have received the following (129) Nobel Prizes:...
The Jews are NOT promoting brain washing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims!
The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew that has destroyed a church. There is NOT a single Jew that protests by killing people.
The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.
Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.
Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for humankind’ before they demand that humankind respects them!!
Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel ‘s part, the following two sentences really say it all:
‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel. ‘ -Benjamin Netanyahu
World's ‘Most Dangerous Islamist' Alive, Well, and Living in Pennsylvania by Paul Williams, PhD - The most dangerous Islamist in the world is neither Afghani nor Arab. He comes from neither Sudan nor Somalia. His name is Fethullan Gulen and he resides in the mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Islam Permits Lying to Deceive Unbelievers and Bring World Domination! By Don Boys, Ph.D. - ...Islam permits lying! It is called “Al-taqiyya.” ...Muslims are permitted to lie: (1) to save their lives, (2) to reconcile a husband and wife, (3) to persuade a woman into a bedroom and (4) to facilitate one on his journey. Muslims are even permitted to disavow Islam and Mohammed if it is not a genuine heart-felt rejection. Muslims will tell you that concealment of a truth is not an abandonment of that truth if it benefits Islam. Mohammed gave permission for a follower to lie in order to kill a Jewish poet who had offended Mohammed. I could provide many examples of permissible lying from the Koran and Hadith and will do so when my critics accuse me of hatred and bigotry because of this column. My motives are not important but the truth is. However, many unprincipled people do not consider truth important. It is political correctness that sits on the throne to be worshiped. Muslims may appear very sincere; in fact, they are sincere, when they lie for their own protection or in the cause of Islam. They have permission to lie. Yes, Christians have also lied but never are they given permission to lie. However, a Muslim has no guilt since the Koran and Hadith permit his deception.
Islam is a Trojan Horse by Amil Imani - The way in which permissive, oblivious, and well-meaning free societies are reacting to the onslaught of Islamofascism does not bode well for liberty.
...“Europe will be Muslim in a dozen years,” promises the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Supreme Guide (dictator) who is racing full-speed ahead to make as many bombs as possible with long-range missiles capable of delivering their payload anywhere in the world.
This past Friday, Yunis al-Astal, a leading Muslim cleric and Hamas member of the Palestinian parliament, declared on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV that "the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital," would soon be conquered by Islam and Rome become an advance post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas.”
The Islam hydra, with Saudi Arabia and the oil-money bloated Emirs and Sheiks of the Persian Gulf leading the Sunni charge from one side and the end-of-the-worlder bomb-seeking Shiite of the Islamic Republic of Iran with its proxies of Hamas, Lebanon Hezbollah and the Sadrists in Iraq closing from the other side will devour the free world.
Free people: are you listening?
Free people: do you care?
Free people: are you doing anything?
Disguised as religion, Islam has penetrated the democracies with the aim of replacing civility and liberty with the barbarism of theocracy and Sharia. Islam’s multi-prong attack aims to destroy all that liberty offers.
Understanding Muslims' Mindset The psychological make up of a Muslim is different from that of non-Muslims. This difference, often irreconcilable as things stand presently, is at the core of the clash of Islam with the West.
Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat - Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components. Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.. Here's how it works: ...
How to Identify Friend from Foe by Melanie Phillips - It is very important to separate moderate Muslims from Islamists. But how can you tell a genuine moderate from the dissimulators? ...There are some Muslims who have zero prejudice towards Israel and the Jews. I have met a few of them – and there are indeed only a very few. They are excessively brave people.
Love Not Hostility Will Change Muslims Elijah Friedeman| When you look at the main reasons Muslims come to Christ, you see love is a very big reason. We won't be able to combat Islam by being hostile towards members of that faith. To make a greater difference, we must love Muslims. A survey of 750 Muslims who converted to Christianity shows five predominant reasons they chose to follow Christ. ...
America as the last man standing - "In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe?" Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, chairman Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem (which I hope to be attending). The speech was sponsored by the Hudson Institute on September 25.
Excerpts: It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city. There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe.
Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means ‘submission’. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.
...An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem. Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives.
Islam's world peace: Now
or later? By William J. Federer - Islam is a religion of peace, but in
the world of paradoxical definitions, perhaps some explanation is needed. The
word "Islam" means submission to the will of Allah. A "Muslim" is one who has
submitted. Whereas most think world peace will be when people just learn how to
get along, faithful Muslims think world peace will be when the whole world
submits to the will of Allah. In other words, world peace means world Islam. To
a fundamental Muslim, submission to Allah means submitting to Islamic law,
called Shariah. Islamic
Shariah law governs every aspect of human life, including:
o what to believe
o what to eat
o how to dress
o when to pray
o in what direction to pray
"Let us recollect that peace or war will not always be left to our option; that however moderate or unambitious we may be, we cannot count upon the moderation, or hope to extinguish the ambition of others." - Alexander Hamilton
“Islamic protests against the slightest Western criticism of or doubt about the religion of Mohammed ring hollow... [S]o long as their religion is noted for its willingness to persecute and employ violence around the globe, they have little credibility to complain of offenses by others.” - Doug Bandow
"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprize, every expanded prospect." James Madison (letter to William Bradford, 1 April 1774) Reference: Madison: Writings, Rakove, ed., Library of America (9)
If the American people could see the bone-chilling threats outlined in the [classified] cable traffic concerning al-Qa’ida and other Islamist terror networks, there would be little dissension about our military mission. (Quote from a three-day national security forum with some knowledgeable military officers.)
Murder for the Sake of Honor Every year 5,000 women are murdered in
so-called 'honor killings' where members of a family kill one of their own
women, like a mother or a sister because they believe her actions have
shamed the family. Rana Husseini says that honor is restored only when the
women is dead. Husseini has documented the practice of honor killings as a
reporter for The Times of Jordan. (Video 6m31s)
Lights Out on Liberty by Mark Steyn, a Canadian citizen, columnist and author of "America Alone: The End of The World as We Know It" and has a realistic but chilling view of what is happening to Western civilization because of multiculturalism, with Canada and Britain leading the way in surrendering to Islamic intolerance.

Religion-of-peace update: Muslim men taking little girls as sex slaves (excuse me, "wives") If this picture doesn't make you hurl, there's something wrong with you. No, seriously. Read the accompanying article, which--of course--portrays these sick pedophiliac freaks as victims of Israeli oppression. The Hamas government also paid the men to take these baby girls as sex slaves. Yes, the appropriate term is "sex slave" and not "wife." Islamic law allows men to marry little girls (typically, the minimum age is nine, the age of one of Muhammed's many wives) so they can sexually abuse them. Let's not forget the 11-year-old Iranian girl who attempted suicide after her father sold her into marriage, with the approval of Muslim mullahs. When are we going to knowledge that radical Islam is just as evil as Nazism? ...Update #1 -- Hawkins' Note: Sky News, which is a reputable news source, is claiming that the brides were seated in the audience and that these little girls were just up on stage as part of a ceremony. While child marriages are all too common in Islamic culture, I'm not sure that's what is actually happening here.

“Fitna,” The Face of Radical Islam — Their Aim Destroy the United States - *WARNING: This video is very violent and graphic.* - The new Dutch video, Fitna, released last week caused international controversy for its shocking exposition of Radical Islam and the Quran. Sadly, as a result of threats to the filmmaker’s staff, the video was withdrawn from several websites over the weekend. However, TMLC and others, not to be intimidated by such threats, continued to show the video on their sites — we still have free speech here. Near the end of this video you will see adherents to Radical Islam specifically announce their aim to destroy the United States. Although the video is graphically violent, it is a testament to the true mission of Radical Islam. The video is available for you to watch here at the TMLC website. (See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fitna_%28film%29)
Muhammad: Leader of change - Muhammad immigrated to Medina as a religious leader. When his followers increased in number, he changed to a political leader. When his followers were wronged, he changed to a military leader. Five years after immigrating, the civilization that hosted him was eliminated.
Islam’s ‘Public Enemy #1’ - A third reason for Botros’s success is that his polemical technique has proven irrefutable. Each of his episodes has a theme — from the pressing to the esoteric — often expressed as a question (e.g., “Is jihad an obligation for all Muslims?”; “Are women inferior to men in Islam?”; “Did Mohammed say that adulterous female monkeys should be stoned?” “Is drinking the urine of prophets salutary according to sharia?”). To answer the question, Botros meticulously quotes — always careful to give sources and reference numbers — from authoritative Islamic texts on the subject, starting from the Koran; then from the canonical sayings of the prophet — the Hadith; and finally from the words of prominent Muslim theologians past and present — the illustrious ulema. ...More often than not, the response from the ulema is deafening silence — which has only made Botros and Life TV more enticing to Muslim viewers. The ulema who have publicly addressed Botros’s conclusions often find themselves forced to agree with him — which has led to some amusing (and embarrassing) moments on live Arabic TV. ...But the ultimate reason for Botros’s success is that — unlike his Western counterparts who criticize Islam from a political standpoint — his primary interest is the salvation of souls. He often begins and concludes his programs by stating that he loves all Muslims as fellow humans and wants to steer them away from falsehood to Truth. To that end, he doesn’t just expose troubling aspects of Islam. Before concluding every program, he quotes pertinent biblical verses and invites all his viewers to come to Christ. ,,,Botros’s motive is not to incite the West against Islam, promote “Israeli interests,” or “demonize” Muslims, but to draw Muslims away from the dead legalism of sharia to the spirituality of Christianity. Many Western critics fail to appreciate that, to disempower radical Islam, something theocentric and spiritually satisfying — not secularism, democracy, capitalism, materialism, feminism, etc. — must be offered in its place. The truths of one religion can only be challenged and supplanted by the truths of another. And so Father Zakaria Botros has been fighting fire with fire.

Huge Islamist Rally for a New ‘Caliphate’ (MRC.org - Weekly Slant Newsletter) If you think the mainstream media really runs “all the news…” think again. On CNSNews, MRC’s exclusive worldwide news service, writer Patrick Goodenough raises the specter of resurgent militant Islam ignored by the mainstream liberal media. In 'Biggest Ever' Rally Calls for Revival of Islamic Caliphate Goodenough reported that the masses of Islamists are demanding a new “caliphate,” a single world-wide Islamic state. “Video footage posted on the group's Websites,” wrote Goodenough, “showed tens of thousands of people, men and women seated apart in the stadium in Jakarta, waving black and white flags and shouting ‘Allah is greater.’” ..."Like al-Qaeda, it [Hizb ut-Tahrir] advocates an Islamic Caliphate in which [Islamic law] will be supreme, but says it wants to achieve it through peaceful mass agitations and not by resort to terrorism or other acts of armed violence," according to South Asian political and security analyst Bahukutumbi Raman. "What the al-Qaeda seeks to propagate through jihadi terrorism, it propagates through political means."
What Israel and the western world is facing. How many realize this truth? How many are prepared?
Martyrdom is considered a weapon from Allah and is considered the highest glory that one can attain.
Radical Islam teaches that martyrdom is the quickest way to Allah and what is not permissible on earth is awaiting them in heaven. A martyr is taught to believe that martyrdom cleanses them from all their sins and guarantees them paradise.
If a Muslim women commits adultery or is raped she is considered used property and has soiled the honor of the family so she may be offered to become a martyr to cleanse the honor of you and your family. Or since the woman's two purposes in life are to bear children and to please her man, she may be asked by her husband to become a suicide martyr.
Children are taught killing Jews and "infidels" from birth is lessons. songs, stories, cartoons, and more. By age 16 they are considered ready.
Just like in Nazi Germany in the 1930's, the radical extremists are in control of the schools and media and are brainwashing Muslims and their children with little or no resistance. The primary tool is fear.
Hannity's America (FOXNEWS) revealed in a program that aired in England, that Jihad is being preached in "moderate Muslim" Mosques, on DVD's, in prisons and clubs, and more: A Muslim preacher was quoted as saying: "We have to live like a state within a state until you take over." and "Jihad is the way of Allah." If we take the Caliphate lightly, will it be at our own peril?
"To die for an idea: it is unquestionably noble. But how much nobler it would be if men died for ideas that were true." H. L. Mencken (1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic http://liberty-tree.ca/qb/H..L..Mencken.Quote.1E17
"Now is the time for the Caliphate to rule the world"
This Muslim chant is NOW occurring throughout the world. A caliphate is the Islamic call demanding that a supreme religious (Islamic) leader rule the world. The result will be EXACTLY what James Madison warned and worse, torture and death for ANYONE who DOES NOT embrace this theocracy.
America's First Amendment is being used to create a Terrorist Bill of Rights and Muslim clerics are preaching Jihad to America's youth while their families and friends watch TV and appear to be oblivious to this infiltration which will destroy America and their comfortable way of life. Politicians appear to be complacent and willing to compromise American security and safety as they coddle the main stream media by being "politically correct."
"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, 'What should be the reward of such sacrifices?' ... If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom...crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!" Samuel Adams
“For too long, the world was paralyzed by the argument that terrorism could not be stopped until the grievances of terrorists were addressed. The complicated and heartrending issues that perplex mankind are no excuse for violent, inhumane attacks, nor do they excuse not taking aggressive action against those who deliberately slaughter innocent people... Effective antiterrorist action has also been thwarted by the claim that... ‘One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.’ That’s a catchy phrase, but also misleading. Freedom fighters do not need to terrorize a population into submission. Freedom fighters target the military forces and the organized instruments of repression keeping dictatorial regimes in power. Freedom fighters struggle to liberate their citizens from oppression and to establish a form of government that reflects the will of the people... [O]ne has to be blind, ignorant, or simply unwilling to see the truth if he or she is unable to distinguish between those I just described and terrorists. Terrorists intentionally kill or maim unarmed civilians, often women and children, often third parties who are not in any way part of a dictatorial regime. Terrorists are always the enemies of democracy.” Ronald Reagan
What about Mohammed? The following is our interpretation of the life and history of Mohammed and the foundation of the Islamic faith, this has not been done arbitrarily or with malice or the intent to deceive. It has been done through critical and comparative scholastic analysis.
MEDIA ADVISORY, March 29 Christian Newswire -- “Why do Muslims call for the death sentence of Muslims who convert to Christianity? Because Mohammed said: ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.’ If we would understand Islam, we must study the life of Mohammed. Until we study Mohammed, we will wander in a desert of ignorance and confusion. "Understanding the life of Mohammed – not merely reading the Koran -- is the most important key to understanding the entire Islamic world; and it is precisely this key that has been entirely missed or ignored by the Western world. "The Shari’a is Islamic law. Islamic law touches on virtually every aspect of religious, political, criminal, military, familial and social life. Broadly speaking, the Shari’a is the sum total of the Koran, the Hadith and the Sunna. To develop Islamic Law, ancient Islamic scholars took the Koran -- together with the sayings and deeds (the Hadith and the Sunna) of Mohammed; they then created a fairly airtight system of Islamic law that has existed for over 1000 years. For example -- the Saudi Arabian Constitution actually says: “Government in Saudi Arabia derives power from the Holy Koran and the Prophet's tradition.” (Article 7, Constitution of Saudi Arabia) Other Islamic nations have similar declarations in their Constitutions. “Islamic prisons and shallow graves are littered with ex-Muslims who dared to leave ‘the peaceful religion of Islam.’” Randall A. Terry, President, Society for Truth and Justice
Note to journalists, TV and radio producers, editors, webmasters and bloggers: At www.earnedmedia.org/wwmd.htm there are several quotes from Mohammed and the Shari’a (Islamic Law) calling for the death of Muslims who leave Islam. As you will see, this treatment of “Muslim Apostates” is part of the very fiber of Islam. Available at www. earnedmedia.org/wwmd.htm is short article can serve as the foundation for an interview; it can be reprinted in its entirety on the web or in print version; it may be quoted for use in other articles. Obviously, the quotes from Mohammed are there to be read and used by all in any manner they see fit. Randall Terry is available for interview to discuss his research on the Muslim Prophet, Mohammed. He has done scores of live radio interviews, television interviews, and print interviews on Islam.
Teaching Hatred? (Family Research Council Washington Update May 24, 2006) Human rights champion Nina Shea has issued a report on Saudi textbooks that teach hatred of Christians, Jews, and in fact, of other Muslims. The books denounce any who do not follow the Saudi regime's severe Wahhabi form of Islam. Saudis have vast influence in the Muslim world--because of their oil wealth and because Saudi kings are said to be "Custodians of the Holy Places of Islam." Nina Shea's organization, Freedom House, conducted the study. It was based on textbooks spirited out of that repressive country. One chilling line should be read and re-read by everyone in the Bush administration: "It is forbidden for a Muslim to be a loyal friend to someone who does not believe in God and his prophet..." In other words, Saudi children are taught from fifth grade not to trust, align or support the Americans, the British, or even neighboring Iraqi Muslims who are fighting the war on terror. The Saudi Ambassador to the United States soothingly assures us that all this is changing, that Saudi textbooks are being "revised." Nina Shea has proved this is false. U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals recently rejected Christian parents' protests against student "role playing" activities. A California elementary school taught students to fight a "jihad" against Christian crusaders and "praise Allah" for their victories. The Ninth Circus approved such activities, affirming a lower court ruling that said they did not constitute an establishment of religion. It's a bizarre time to be in grade school in the Golden State.
What follows depicts exactly what "infidels" are facing, and will continue to face, until either the Muslim world decides it can live with and tolerate other faiths, or until the end of the world, because the Judeo-Christians will forever remain tolerant of other faiths, unlike Islamic radical terrorists, who are bent on killing any and all infidels, even women and children, in the name of their unholy destructive tyrannical "hijacked religion."
CAPE TOWN, South Africa, July 26 /Christian Wire Service/ -- Muslim Mob at University Missions Week On Monday, 18 July, American missionary, Timothy Keller, was surrounded by a mob of Muslim students at the University of Pretoria threatening him and demanding that the his missions display be removed. Tim had been officially invited by the University Missions Committee to take part in their "Go Love the Nations" Missions Week 2005. Within two hours of setting up the Frontline Fellowship missions display, Timothy began to receive hostile reactions from Muslim students, some of whom swore and cursed him, and threatened his life. Soon a mob of fifteen to twenty Muslim students were surrounding the mission display shouting and swearing at Tim. Some tore up or burned the missions literature. A Muslim member of the Student Representative Council then fetched the Dean of students to inform Tim that he had to dismantle the Frontline mission display. That afternoon, Tim was informed by the TUKS Missions Committee that they could not allow the mission display to be set up again. It was mentioned that the Frontline Fellowship newsletters, in what it reported on the activities and teachings of Muslims, were too offensive to Muslim students. (ETH comment: But the intolerance of those same Muslim students were not "too offensive" too Judeo-Christians? Double-standard? The world according to these Muslims "students" and no one else deserves to exist?)
In the name of Allah, Islamic radicals, seemingly driven by sex and hatred, believe if they are martyred, they will immediately have seven virgins waiting for them when if they kill themselves and "infidels" in the name of Allah. Now compare this with the martyrs of Christianity who are killed, versus committing suicide, for serving their Christ and loving their neighbor. See Voice of the Martyrs for evidence. If you want to know what's really going on in over 40 countries where Christians are facing persecution, subscribe to The Voice of the Martyrs FREE monthly newsletter.
Terrorism's root causes - July 11,2005 - "It matters little that 'the overwhelming majority of Muslims are not terrorists,' to quote a familiar Western mantra. It matters a great deal that most terrorists are Muslims. The sooner Western leaders and Western media begin stating what is obvious to most people, the quicker the real root cause can be dealt with." Cal Thomas
The Muslim groups who wouldn't attend the March Against Terror by Joel Mowbray (6/1/2005) In the first of its kind for an event organized by a major national Muslim organization, Kamal Nawash and the Free Muslims Coalition (FMC) recently held the Free Muslims March Against Terrorism.
Democracy shuts its eyes as Muslim women are enslaved by Armstrong Williams (5/23/2005) Throughout Europe, people are standing idly by as Muslim women are being murdered for having the audacity to date, or to not wear their head scarves outside, or to yearn for a life outside of the home. The problem is most pronounced in Germany. Last month six German women were murdered by their Muslim families for flirting with Western culture.
"For the holy war [jihad] there's no difference between men and women [martyrs]. According to the Koran, male martyrs are welcomed to Paradise by 72 beautiful virgins. ...[A] woman martyr will be the chief of the 72 virgins, the fairest of the fair." --London's Telegraph quoting a 20-year-old would-be Palestinian suicide bomber, now residing in an Israeli prison **"That is to say, the highest aspiration for a fundamentalist Palestinian girl is murder, suicide and prostitution. Has there ever been a more depraved culture?" James Taranto
The Federalist 05-28 Digest - Theo van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker and columnist who frequently criticized Islam, was brutally murdered in full view of more than 50 witnesses while he was cycling to work in November last year. Dutch-Moroccan national Mohammed Bouyeri, the Jihadi who shot van Gogh 15 times, stabbed him, slit his throat, then pinned a note to his body with the knife, has confessed to a Dutch court that he acted on his religious beliefs. He added that he would do "exactly the same" if he were ever set free. To van Gogh's mother he said, "I cannot feel for you ... because I believe you are an infidel." In the enlightened , the most he can receive is life in prison without parole. This Jihadi admits that his actions had nothing to do wNetherlandsith the U.S. being in Iraq and Afghanistan, or "torture" of prisoners by the U.S. military, or the Israelis simply being alive, or unemployment and hopelessness (blamed for the London bombings), or any other such nonsense being advanced by those who would give a pass to terrorism. Likewise, commenting on the attacks in London, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iraq and other actions taken by the U.S. and Britain are the consequences of terrorism, not the cause, noting terrorist attacks pre-9/11 and even pre-1948 when Israel was created. To blame us, he added, is "reverse causality."
Family Research Council - The Washington Times today quoted an unnamed investigator as saying that there is symbolic significance in the fact that the bombers attempted to travel from a central location in the four different directions of the compass. "We think it was intended as an al Qaeda message--to seemingly blow up in the form [of] a fiery cross in the heart of the Christian infidels." The name of the station where the killers parted ways was "King's Cross." The story also noted that during publicity over alleged American abuse of the Koran, a group of protesting Muslims had burned a cross in front of the U.S. Embassy in London--an incident little reported or protested in this country. A combination of secular blindness and political correctness continues to prevent many people from seeing or stating the obvious--these terrorist bombings, like those on September 11, did not happen because of poverty, high debt burdens, or other economic reasons. They happened because the practitioners of a particular radical form of Islam believe that their religion not only allows but encourages them to murder those who don't share their faith especially Christians and Jews.
The Religion of Peace lists the nation, city, number injured, number killed and how the attack was carried out, such as suicide bomb, mass shooting, etc. Individual acid attacks against "immodest" women, rapes of Christian, Buddhist and Hindu women, along with state sponsored massacres in the Sudan are not listed. The site details every Islamist attack on civilization since the 9-11 Jihad attack against America.
"If Muslims embrace the Quran as their holy book, then it is the ultimate tool to reach them and at least to provoke them to question what is written in their own book of the law. The Quran makes references to the Bible. The Bible never refers to the Quran for truth or authenticity. I use their own book of precepts to validate the authenticity of Christ," Patricia Bailey, who has ministered in many Arabic nations, told "Charisma" magazine in the January issue, out now. The full report on evangelists using the Quran as a tool to preach Jesus can be found in the magazine.
In comparison to Christianity and the teachings of Christ: Muslim Convert Killed In Holy Land - The body of a Muslim convert to Christianity who went missing in mid-July, has been returned to his family, slaughtered and cut into four pieces by Islamic extremists, according to a report from the Barnabas Fund which monitored the incident. According to shari’a (Islamic law) any Muslim male who leaves Islam (apostasies) faces the death penalty. Full Story: http://www.mcjonline.com/news/03a/20030815e.shtml - Do you have ears to hear what might be the Islamic intensions for America?The latest study, Freedom in the World 2001-2002, highlighted the substantial democracy deficit in the Islamic world, especially in its Arabic core. According to the survey: While 121 of the world’s 192 countries are electoral democracies, only 11 of the 47 nations (23 percent) with an Islamic majority have democratically elected governments. By contrast, the non-Islamic world, which consists of 145 states, 110 are electoral democracies (75 percent). None of the 16 Arab states of the Middle East and North Africa is a democracy. There exists a dramatic freedom deficit between majority Islamic countries and the rest of the world. Of the states with an Islamic majority, only one, Mali, is rated Free. Eighteen are rated Partly Free, and 28 are considered Not Free. By contrast, in the non-Islamic world, 84 countries are Free, 41 are Partly Free, and 20 are Not Free. The gap in freedom has only widened over the last 20 years. While every other region of the world has registered significant gains for democracy and freedom, the countries of the Islamic world have experienced a significant increase in repression. The analysis, however, does not imply an inherent incompatibility between the Islamic world and democratic values. Democratically constituted governments, such as those in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Turkey, govern countries with large Muslim populations. Indeed, the majority of the world's Muslims live in electoral democracies. Freedom House
Muslim authorities and fundamentalist extremists in several Islamic nations are coming down hard on Christians caught sharing their faith with Muslims. Associated Press reports that police in Saudi Arabia recently raided an underground church in suburban Riyadh and arrested 40 foreigners, including some children, for proselytizing. It is illegal in modern Saudi Arabia to promote any religion other than Islam, and organized churches are illegal. Adherents of non-Islamic faiths there are generally allowed to practice their beliefs in private homes but may not proselytize or meet for organized worship or other religious observances. Those arrested could face prison or possible deportation. And in Malaysia, another Islamic nation that forbids proselytizing of Muslims, police have detained two U.S. citizens who allegedly were handing out Christian pamphlets near a mosque. A Malay official says the American men were taken into custody on charges of "disturbing the peace in a religious manner," and the police have a court order permitting them to hold the two men for up to two weeks "for questioning." And while official retaliation for proselytizing can be harsh, the response from Muslim radicals in Islamic-dominated regions often proves lethal. AsiaNews.it has confirmed reports that a Christian minister and evangelist was found beheaded in Jalalpur, a village in south-western Bangladesh on March 8. The authorities believe the 35-year-old Baptist pastor from the Bangladesh Free Baptist Church was killed by Muslim extremists who had threatened his family after he discussed his faith with some Muslim villagers.

Wake-up call for my fellow Muslims by Kamal Nawash (3/1/2005) Muslim-bashing. That’s the accusation many of my fellow Muslims now hurl at the various news outlets for their news stories about a Freedom House investigation that found extremist Islamic literature in some leading American mosques.
Random thoughts by Thomas Sowell (12/6/2004) Random thoughts on the passing scene: (excerpt) Fears that the Iraq war would be seen in the Middle East as a clash between Islam and the West are being blunted to some extent by the actions of the terrorists themselves, who are killing far more Moslems than they are killing Americans or other members of the military coalition.
"It is a certain fact that not all Muslims are terrorists, but it is equally certain, and exceptionally painful, that almost all terrorists are Muslims." --Abdel Rahman al-Rashed, general manager of Al-Arabiya news channel, responding to recent Islamist terrorism in Russia, Iraq and across the Middle East
Mutilations and Muslim law by Jeff Jacoby (6/14/2004) "A recent fatwa posted on a popular Islamic website in Saudi Arabia," reports Neil McFarquhar in The New York Times, "explains when a Muslim may mutilate the corpse of an infidel." The ruling by Sheik Omar Abdullah Hassan al-Shehabi specifies two circumstances in which the desecration of an infidel -- i.e., a non-Muslim -- is permitted. One is retaliation -- "when the enemy is disfiguring Muslim corpses or when it otherwise serves the Islamic nation." The other is when mutilation will "terrorize the enemy" or "gladden the heart of a Muslim warrior."
The Sword Of The Prophet (Islam) Serge Trifkovic - The shocking facts about its founder, Mohammed; its rise through bloody conquest; its sanctioning of theft, deceit, lust and murder; its persecutions of Christians, Jews, Hindus and other "infidels"; its cruel mistreatment of women; the colossal myth of its cultural "golden age"; its irreformable commitment to global conquest by any means necessary; the broad sweep of the military, political, moral, and spiritual struggle that faces us; and what we must do if we wish to survive.
God and Allah Are Not the Same, Judge Told Patrick Goodenough Pacific Rim Bureau Chief Pacific Rim Bureau (CNSNews.com) - God and Allah are not the same, an Australian pastor has told a tribunal where he faces complaints of vilifying Islam. Pastor Daniel Scot, a scholar in Islam who fled his native Pakistan 17 years ago amid threats of retribution for "blasphemy," said that his studying of the Bible and the Quran led him to the conclusion that the God of the Bible and Allah of the Quran were different in practice, behavior and other attributes.
Onward Muslim Soldiers How Jihad still threatens America and the West. An author and expert on Islam says Americans need to understand that terrorism is not an Arab or racial problem, but an Islamic, 'ideological' problem. "Onward Muslim Soldiers How Jihad still threatens America and the West." Robert Spencer, using Islamic sources, past and contemporary, makes the case that the call for jihad against Christians, the West and Jews springs from the dictates of the religion of Islam. The Koran, requires all Muslims to give non-Muslims three choices: conversion, submission with second-class status under Islamic law, or death. "Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free . . . (Sura 9:5)." More details: http://headlines.agapepress.org/archive/10/92003g.asp

"Let us look at American policies. America conducted three wars in the 1990s. The Gulf War saved the Kuwaiti people from Saddam. American intervention in the Balkans saved Bosnia. And then we saved Kosovo from Serbia. What do these three military campaigns have in common? In every one we saved a Muslim people." --Charles Krauthammer

Wlodzimierz Redzioch/TN (Jan 14th, 2007)
The following are excerpts taken from an interview by Wlodzimierz Redzioch of The Sunday Catholic Weekly of Giorgio Paolucci, editor-in-chief of the Catholic Italian daily 'Avvenire' and the co-author of the book I cristiani venuti dall'Islam (Christians Coming From Islam) written together with the Lebanese journalist Camille Eid. Of his book, Paolucci says it is an attempt to show "the tip of the iceberg" concerning the "phenomenon" of Islamic conversions to Christianity, which is "not marginal at all."

GIORGIO PAOLUCCI: Due to migration, followers of Islam live among us. Thus Islam is in Europe, with its complexity, including the big problem of religious freedom that has not been solved by Islamic countries and secular Muslim communities dispersed all over the world. Our book deals with theological and legal aspects of apostasy, and the penalty for it. We have also showed stories of converts in order to understand how people can be fascinated with Christianity, at risk of being threatened, persecuted or facing difficulties. Within two years of work, overcoming the opposition and fears of many people, we managed to collect testimonies of 30 ex-Muslims who converted to Christianity and today they are living as Christians in Italy.
WLODZIMIERZ REDZIOCH: Why do Muslims convert to Christianity?
GIORGIO PAOLUCCI: Everyone asks questions about the sense of life, happiness, love, friendship, and life after death. The people we met did not often find satisfying answers to these questions in the Koran and in their Muslim upbringing but they encountered fascinating testimonies of Christians, their friends, colleagues, neighbors, teachers who showed them that there was a more convincing answer. This answer is not the Koran but Christianity. So Jesus Christ crowned their search and human desires.
WLODZIMIERZ REDZIOCH: What conclusions did you reach on the basis of your survey concerning Christian converts from Islam?
GIORGIO PAOLUCCI: Our book makes three challenges: challenge to Islam so that it grants their believers freedom of religion; challenge to the state authorities of the West that guarantee this freedom; challenge to lukewarm Christians so that they know that meeting Christ means a true 'revolution' of life. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 18, states that religious freedom is the foundation of every civil society. That's why Muslim communities in the West have the right to demand protection of their religious rights but they should also permit people to change their religion. Every government must ensure that the right to freedom of religion is obeyed. It cannot be accepted that a Muslim who has chosen Christianity must hide his new religion and e.g. go to church situated several dozen kilometers away from his home so as not to be persecuted by his local Islamic community. Muslim converts are also a great challenge for the Church because they are elements of 'the spring' of Christianity in the times where in many countries it has stopped being 'the agent' of existence and has become only 'a decoration'. Meeting these new Christians, coming from Islam, we were impressed by their enthusiasm and courage. 'You do not realize what treasure you have... Jesus Christ has revolutionized our lives' a certain Algerian told us. 'You possess a closed jewel case in which you have a treasure. We come to your churches and cannot see this treasure; we come to your country and see a closed case. You should keep it open because it contains treasures for all people. You are shy and ashamed of Jesus instead of promoting Jesus to immigrants'. We saw extremely living faith in those converts and that makes us aware that Christ has brought about a real revolution in the world.
