Moderate’ Islamists Admit: ‘Radical’ Islam IS Islam (Video)

A group of admitted, mainstream, “moderate” Sunni Muslims, who attend regular, average mosques, are totally cool with whatever punishment Allah says is the best punishment. Killing the gays? For sure. Stoning your woman for adultery?


Are Christians and Muslims the Same? By Matt Barber
This is the difference between Christianity and Islam. They are as day and night.
One loves its enemies. The other murders them.
One frees women and children. The other binds them.
One welcomes conversion. The other compels it.
One suffers persecution. The other inflicts it.
One is truth. The other a lie.
One offers eternal salvation. The other, damnation.
Islam is the poison.
Christ is the cure.


QURAN VS. CONSTITUTION: WHY THEY'RE INCOMPATIBLE
Exclusive: William Federer compares documents amendment by amendment
Published: 09/26/2009 at 12:00 AM

President Barack Obama stated in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009: “When the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the … Holy Quran.” The dilemma is: How can one swear to defend something upon a book that promotes the opposite?
   The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion, yet the Quran states in Sura 4:89, “Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take hold of them and kill them wherever you find them.”
   In Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari (Vol. 9, Book 84, No. 57), Muhammad said: “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.”
Islamic law relegates non-Muslims to “dhimmi” status, where they are not to propagate their customs amongst Muslims and cannot display a Cross or a Star of David.
   The First Amendment states Congress shall not abridge “the freedom of speech,” yet Islamic law enforces dhimmi status on non-Muslims, prohibiting them from observing their religious practices publicly, raising their voices during prayer or ringing church bells.
   The First Amendment states Congress cannot take away “the right of the people to peaceably assemble,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims cannot build any new places of worship or repair any old places Muslims have destroyed; they must allow Muslims to participate in their private meetings; they cannot bring their dead near the graveyards of Muslims or mourn their dead loudly.
   The First Amendment states Congress cannot take away the right of the people “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims are not to harbor any hostility toward the Islamic state or give comfort to those who disagree with Islamic government.
   The Second Amendment states, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims cannot possess arms, swords or weapons of any kind.
   The Third Amendment states one cannot be forced to “quarter” someone in their house, yet Islamic law states non-Muslims must entertain and feed for three days any Muslim who wants to stay in their home, and for a longer period if the Muslim falls ill – and they cannot prevent Muslim travelers from staying in their places of worship.
   The Fourth Amendment guarantees “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures,” yet Islamic law states if a non-Muslim rides on a horse with a saddle and bridle, the horse can be taken away.
   The Fifth Amendment states that “no person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime … without due process of law,” yet Muhammad said, “No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir (infidel)” (Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, No. 50).
   The Sixth Amendment guarantees a “public trial by an impartial jury” and the Seventh Amendment states “the right of trial by jury shall be preserved,” yet Islamic law does not give non-Muslims equal legal standing with Muslims, even prohibiting a non-Muslim from testifying in court against a Muslim.
   The Eighth Amendment states there shall be no “cruel and unusual punishments inflicted,” yet the Quran states:
“Cut off the hands of thieves, whether they are male or female, as punishment for what they have done – a deterrent from Allah” (Sura 5:38).
   A raped woman is punished: “The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication – flog each of them with a hundred stripes” (Sura 24:2).
   Women can be beaten: “If you experience rebellion from the women, you shall first talk to them, then (you may use negative incentives like) deserting them in bed, then you may (as a last alternative) beat them” (Sura 4:34).
   Honor killings of wives and daughters who have embarrassed their families have been reported by the United Nations in Muslim populations of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Pakistan, Syria, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Yemen and increasing in Western nations.
   The 13th Amendment states there shall be no “slavery or involuntary servitude,” yet the Quran accommodates slavery as Muhammad owned slaves.
   The 14th Amendment guarantees citizens “equal protection of the laws,” yet the Quran does not consider Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims as equal to Muslims before the law.
   Referring to Jews as “the People of the Book,” Muhammad said: “They are those whom Allah has cursed; who have been under his wrath; some of whom were turned into apes and swine” (Sura 5:60, 7:166, 2:65).
   The 15th Amendment guarantees “the right of the citizens … to vote shall not be denied … on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude,” yet the fundamentalist interpretation of Islamic law does not allow voting, as democracy is considered people setting themselves in the place of Allah by making their own laws.
   The 16th Amendment has some similarities with Islamic law, as “Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes from whatever source derived.” Muhammad said, “Fight those who believe not in Allah … until they pay the jizya [tax] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Sura 9:29).
    The 18th Amendment has some similarities with Islamic law, as “the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors … for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited.”
   The 19th Amendment allows women to vote, yet in strict Islamic countries women cannot vote.
The 21st Amendment allows for the sale of liquor, yet Islamic law prohibits non-Muslims from selling or drinking wine and liquor openly.
   One would assume that to swear upon a book implies believing what is in that book.
   As Muhammad was not just a religious leader, but also a political and military leader, Islam is not just a religious system, but also a political and military system.
   Since no one has the authority to demand Muslims worldwide cease imitating the political/military example of Muhammad, when Muslims bow in prayer they are also pledging political/military allegiance to Mecca.
   Swearing to defend the U.S. Constitution upon a Quran that promotes different values is a dilemma worthy of a presidential explanation.

Radical Islam

The Islamic State: How Its Leadership Is Organized (Click Video at right) - Experts say the terrorist organization calling itself the Islamic State is operating like a government, with a bureaucratic hierarchy. Heres how it is structured. Reported by WSJ's Jason Bellini and Reem Makhoul.

ISIS, James Foley and the President’s Tepid Response to the “Religion of Peace” (Thomas Moore Law Center) As ISIS videotaped the brutal beheading of an American journalist, its spokesman, in perfect English, warned President Obama and the American people that more deaths are coming if the US does not submit to their demands. The President’s tepid response this afternoon was disappointing. Even at this time of sorrow for the barbaric murder of Jim Foley, President Obama could not help but to give credence to the “good cop/bad cop” routine which Muslims have consistently used to blunt our ability to effectively deal with the true threat posed by radical Islam itself.  But Obama’s approach is not new.  For years Americans have endured the deception spewed out by politicians pandering for Muslim votes, our own government, and Muslim apologists that “Islam is a religion of peace”. . .  . . . even as fellow Americans were being blown to bits and murdered by Islamic terrorists, from the 9/11 attacks, to the Fort Hood massacre, and the Boston Marathon bombing.
   ...WWII could have been prevented and millions of lives saved if only our leaders had taken more seriously what Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf and said in his speeches.  Koran-believing Muslims consider the slaughter of Americans moral and holy. Let’s not make the same mistake with these jihadists as we did with Hitler. Take them seriously. The Koran commands Muslims to engage in a holy war (Jihad) in order to impose Islam and Shariah Law on the entire world. “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in  wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.” (Koran 9:5) Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi of the Muslim Brotherhood told a youth conference in Toledo, Ohio in 1998,  “We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America.”
   ...Islam is more than a religion.  It is a political ideology that calls for Islamic domination of the world.  Moreover, it’s incumbent on Muslims to make war upon non-Muslims until all nations submit. And that includes the United States. This is what the co-founder of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) said to a California audience in 1998: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”   

Four Stages of Islamic Conquest - by SHEIKYER MAMI - Stage 1: Infiltration Stage 2: Consolidation of Power Stage 3: Open War with Leadership and Culture Stage 4: Totalitarian Islamic “Theocracy”

 

A warning from a former Muslim - I was born and raised as Muslim. My whole family is still Muslim. I know every genetic code of Muslim. I know Islamic brain. I live and breath with them. I am an insider. I left Islam when I understood that Islam is a sick and evil religion. The following are the Islamic message to the West. To the infidels of the West: The Constitution for the new Islamic Republics of EuroArabia and AmerIslamia is under construction. We will fight the infidel to death. -

   Meanwhile American laws will protect us. - Democrats and Leftist will support us. - N.G.O.s will legitimize us. - C.A.I.R. will incubate us. - The A.C.L.U. will empower us. - Western Universities will educate us. - Mosques will shelter us - O.P.E.C. will finance us - Hollywood will love us. - Kofi Annan and most of the United Nations will cover our asses.

   Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the US and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education in full scholarship. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s educations and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools. We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad. We will take the advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion.

   When time comes, we will stab them in the back. We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about Islamic Country’s interest than US interest. We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from the very childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with Infidel. Once we do that from the very early age our children won’t hesitate to be martyr.

   We will take over the Europe first and then US will be the next. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and now in the US. Our children will marry Caucasian in Europe and in America. We will mixed with intricate fabric of the Western society but still will remember to Jihad when time comes. Who are we? We are the “sleeper cells”. We will raise our children to be loyal to Islam and Mohammad only. Everything else is secondary.

   At the time of the real fight we will hold our own children as our armor. When American or Israeli troops shoot at us the world will be watching. Imagine,… Imagine the news in the world “Death of Muslim babies by infidels”. We know CNN, ABC, CBS are broadcasting live. Al-Jazeera will pour gasoline on the fire. The news will spread like wildfire. “Americans killed 6 babies, 10 babies”. “Jews killed two women”...

   ...Muslims, CAIR, ISNA, MPAC and other international Islamic Organization will unite. We will partner with Leftist, ACLU, with Koffi Annan, and the UN, and if we have to then even with France. Fasten your seatbelt. The war of civilizations has just begun. We will recite Quran and say Allah-Hu-Akbar before beheading infidels, as we have been doing it. We will video tape those and send it to all infidels to watch. They will surrender - ISLAM means surrender. We will use your own values of kindness against you. You are destined to loose.     

An Historical Perspective on a Muslim Being Sworn into Congress on the Koran by David Barton - In 1784, Congress authorized American diplomats John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson to negotiate with the Muslim terrorists. Negotiations proceeded, and in 1786, John 3 Adams and Thomas Jefferson candidly asked the Ambassador from Tripoli the motivation behind their unprovoked attacks against Americans. What was the response? The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of their Prophet [Mohammed] – that it was written in their Koran that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners; that is 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. Given this “spiritual” incentive to enslave and make war, the Muslim attacks against American ships and seamen were frequent. In fact, in the span of just one month in 1793, Algiers alone seized ten American ships and enslaved more then one hundred sailors, holding them for sale or ransom.
   ...Truly, with no fear of consequence, Muslims found American targets especially inviting, fueling even further attacks. Adams truly understood the difference that a naval force would make, explaining: It would be a good occasion to begin a navy. . . . The policy of Christendom [i.e., of the Christian nations not fighting back for their rights] has made cowards of all their [the Christian nations’] sailors before the standard of Mahomet. It would be heroical and glorious in us to restore courage to ours. I doubt not we could accomplish it if we should set about it in earnest. By the end of Adams’ administration, extortion payments to the Muslim terrorists accounted for twenty percent of the federal budget. When Thomas Jefferson became President in 1801, having personally dealt with the Muslim Barbary Powers for almost two decades, he had already concluded that there were only three solutions to the terrorist problem: (1) pay the extortion money, (2) keep all American ships out of international waters (which would destroy American commerce), or (3) use military force to put an end to the attacks. Jefferson discarded the first two options, rejecting the second as a matter of bad policy, and the first because: I was very unwilling that we should acquiesce in the . . . humiliation of paying a tribute to those lawless pirates.
   .... Using the new American Navy built under Adams, Eaton transported the U. S. Marines overseas; and when the offending nations found themselves confronted by imminent American military action, all but Tripoli backed down. General Eaton therefore led a successful military campaign against Tripoli that freed captured seaman and crushed the terrorist forces. After four years of fighting, in 1805 Tripoli signed a treaty on America’s terms, thus ending their terrorist aggressions. (It is from the Marine Corps’ role in that first conflict with Muslim terrorists from 1801-1805 that the opening line of the Marine Hymn is derived: “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli . . .”)
   American troops returned home, and the region briefly remained quiet, but by 1807, Muslim Algiers had resumed attacks against American ships and sailors. Jefferson, preoccupied with efforts to avoid war with both Great Britain and France, did not return military forces to the region. Nevertheless, his actions had brought America its first respite to the decades old attacks; so when he left office, Congress congratulated him, noting: These are points in your administration which the historian will . . . teach posterity to dwell upon with delight. Nor will he forget . . . the lesson taught the inhabitants of the coast of Barbary – that we have the means of chastising their piratical encroachments and awing them into justice.
   (Interestingly, Congressman Ellison took his ceremonial oath of office on the Koran owned by Thomas Jefferson. A pertinent question might be: Why did Jefferson own a Koran? A simple answer is: To learn the beliefs of the enemies he was fighting. Recall that Jefferson had been personally exposed to Islamic beliefs when attempting to secure peace between America and Muslim terrorists. Having been told by the Muslim Ambassador that the Koran promised Paradise as a reward for enslaving, killing, and war, Jefferson inquired into the irrational beliefs that motivated the Muslim groups and individuals warring against America. Therefore, using Jefferson’s Koran was perhaps not as noble an image as Ellison tried to portray, despite his unfounded claim that the Koran is “definitely an important historical document in our national history and demonstrates that Jefferson was a broad visionary thinker. . . . It [the Koran] would have been something that contributed to his own thinking.” The Koran did contribute to Jefferson’s thinking, but certainly not in the sense Ellison meant.)  
   ...During that extended conflict, the American public learned much about the character of the Muslim terrorists through the official correspondence between the State Department and its diplomats. For example, in addition to the insights gained from diplomats such as Adams and Jefferson, General William Eaton informed the Secretary of State why the Muslims were such dedicated foes: Taught by revelation that war with the Christians [i.e., America] will guarantee the salvation of their souls, . . . their [the Muslims’] inducements to desperate fighting are very powerful. ...America did not retaliate against Muslims because of their faith but rather to end their terrorism against Americans.
   ...Montesquieu, having examined the visible influences of both Christianity and Islam upon governments, therefore recommended: From the characters of the Christian and Mahometan religions, we ought without any further examination to embrace the one and reject the other; for it is much easier to prove that religion ought to humanize the manners of men than that any particular religion is true. It is a misfortune to human nature when religion is given by a conqueror. The Mahometan religion, which speaks only by the sword, acts still upon men with that destructive spirit with which it was founded.
   ...And in 1898, Charles Galloway, like so many historians before and after him, also noted: The Koran puts a premium upon war, offering the highest rewards to those who slay the greatest number of infidels. Mohammed’s cardinal principle (that the end justifies the means) consecrated every form of deception and lying and encouraged every sort of persecution and violence. . . . The citizen is the slave of the state; he has no rights to be respected. Mohammedanism is an absolute despotism.  

American Minute with Bill Federer AUGUST 3 - Reconquista, and Columbus' voyage to find new route to India and China - Columbus revealed his motivation for setting sail on his first voyage, AUGUST 3, 1492, with the Nina, Pinta and the Santa Maria. Columbus was looking for a sea route to India and China as an alternative to traveling by land through Muslim territories. In 1498, Vasco da Gama made the first successful voyage from Portugal to India. Muslims, called "Moors," had invaded Spain in 711AD, with a cavalry of 80,000 wielding scimitar swords and "went through all places like a desolating storm."
   The Mozarabic Chronicle, 754AD, recorded that thousands of churches were burned and: "God alone knows the number of the slain." In 1011, Muslims killed 2,000 in Cordoba, Spain. In 1066, Muslims massacred every one of the 5,000 Jews in Granada, Spain. In 1189, Muslims raided Libson, Portugal, and enslaved 3,000 women and children. In 1191, Muslims attacked Silves, Portugal, enslaving another 3,000. The Catholic Orders of Montjoie, and Calatrava, were organized to ransom back Christian slaves. It took over 700 years to drive Muslims out in what was called the re-conquest or "reconquista."
   In 1085, the Kingdom of Castile freed Toledo from the Muslims, and in 1119, the Kingdom of Aragon freed the city of Zaragoza from the Muslims. The Spanish knight Rodrigo Diaz, called "El Cid," drove Muslims out of Valencia in 1094. (Charlton Heston starred in the movie, "El Cid," in 1961).

 





Do Muslim countries represent individual freedoms and liberties or tyranny and oppression?

Islam – The Horse’s Mouth - Every day of every year we hear from Islam. They brag about what they stand for and are not shy in telling us what to expect. Yet The West and most of the civilized world refuses to take them at their word. 1400 year history of death and destruction, 9/11, beheadings, 'honor killings', blowing up children in schools and buses and on and on and on…. Just pick your media and check the news on any given day and you will find atrocities in the name of 'Allah.' No matter all of this, the suicidal morons of the West still let them build more Mosques and immigrate into their countries. 'The Twilight Zone' indeed… And here we have Mr. Mosab Hassan Yousef who was born to the son of one of Hamas’ seven original founders. He was raised on radical Islamic values and it seemed almost certain that he would follow in his father’s footsteps and proudly become a terrorist. In this interview with the Jerusalem Post TV, he states unequivocally that Islam is a "religion of war." "…only 300 million out of 1.6 billion Muslims actually “understand the language of Koran.” The ones that truly comprehend the teachings of Muhammad, he explained, feel an obligation to carry out his teachings and sometimes that means committing acts of violence and many times murder." (See also: Taliban Shoot Woman 9 Times, Men Cheer “Allahu Akbar!” and 50 Christians Burned Alive inside pastor’s home by Muslims)

Muslim Professor says Marriage has No Age Barrier and Muslims Have No Need to be Ashamed about Sex with Children - By Onan Coca - In April 2011, the Bangladesh Mufti Fazlul Haque Amini declared that those trying to pass a law banning child marriage in that country were putting Muhammad in a bad light: “Banning child marriage will cause challenging the marriage of the holy prophet of Islam, [putting] the moral character of the prophet into controversy and challenge.” He added a threat: “Islam permits child marriage and it will not be tolerated if any ruler will ever try to touch this issue in the name of giving more rights to women.” The Mufti said that 200,000 jihadists were ready to sacrifice their lives for any law restricting child marriage.

Jesus and Muhammad compared By William Federer - What motivates fundamental Muslims to violence? Much effort has gone into answering this. Muslim apologists are quick to point out Christians have also committed violence. Secularists suggest anybody who believes in God is prone to violence, conveniently ignoring the atheistic killings of the French Revolution, Stalin’s purges and Mao Tse-tung’s Cultural Revolution.

...One can examine the life of Jesus from the four Gospels. One can examine the life of Muhammad from the Quran, Hadith and sources like the Sirat Rasul Allah. The Quran is a collection of private revelations Muhammad received between A.D. 610-632. Conflicting versions were passed down orally until Caliph Uthman standardized them around A.D. 650.
 
...Jesus never killed anyone. Muhammad killed an estimated 3,000 people, including beheading 700 Jews of the Banu Qurayza tribe in Medina, A.D. 627:
 
...Jesus never owned slaves. Muhammad received a fifth of the prisoners taken in battle, including women. (Sura 8:41)
 
...Jesus never married. Muhammad had many wives.
 
...Jesus never forced followers to continue believing. After Jesus made a difficult saying, “many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then Jesus said to the twelve, ‘Will ye also go away?’ Then Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life.’” (John 6:31-69) Muhammad forced followers to continue believing, “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.” (Hadith al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, Bk. 84, No. 57)
 
Jesus taught God was our Father (Matthew 6:10). Muhammad taught it was blasphemy to call Allah your father (Sura 5:18)
 
Jesus taught man was made in God’s image. (Matthew 22:20, ref. Gen. 1:26-27, 9:6) Muhammad taught Allah has no image. (Sura 42:11, Sura 112:4)
 
Jesus taught “forgive those who trespass against you.” (Matthew 6:10-15) Muhammad taught to avenge trespasses against your honor, family or religion.
 
...Jesus did not retaliate when violence was committed against him, saying “Father, forgive them.” (Luke 23:34) Muhammad retaliated when violence was committed against him, ordering the death of his enemies.
 
...Following Jesus was voluntary, from the inside out. Following Muhammad could be coerced, from the outside in.
 
...A martyr in Christian and Jewish thought is one who dies for his faith. A martyr in Islamic thought is one who dies for his faith while killing infidels.
 
...Christianity teaches God wants a personal relationship with each individual. Islam teaches individuals cannot have a personal relationship with Allah, as he is transcendent and unknowable.
 
...Jesus’ religion is known for forgiveness and love. Muhammad’s religion is known for obedience and fear.
 
...None of Jesus’ Apostles led armies. ...All of the caliphs who followed Muhammad led armies.
 
...In the first 300 years of Christianity, there were 10 major Roman persecutions, and Christians were fed to lions in the Colosseum. Never did Christians lead an armed resistance against those who attacked them. In the first 300 years of Islam, Muslim armies conquered Arabia, Persia, the Holy Land, North Africa, Spain, Southern France, Central Africa, and invaded vast areas of Asia and Asia Minor.
 
...Jesus’ teaching on how to treat enemies:

Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, pray for them which despitefully use you (Matthew 5:44).
Resist not evil (Matthew 5:39).
If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to them the other (Matthew 5:39).
If someone takes your coat, give them your shirt (Matthew 5:40).
If someone make you carry something one mile, carry it two (Matthew 5:41).
Forgive and you shall be forgiven (Matthew 6:14).
Judge not, that ye be not judged (Matthew 7:1).
Blessed are the peacemakers (Matthew 5:9).
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy (Matthew 5:7).
Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt not kill, but I say who ever is angry with his brother is in danger of the judgment (Matthew 5:21-22).
Treat others the same way you want them to treat you (Luke 6:27-36).
Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick, whatever you do to the very least you have done unto me (Matthew 25:40).

Muhammad’s teaching on how to treat enemies:

Infidels are your sworn enemies (Sura 4:101).
Be ruthless to the infidels (Sura 48:29).
Make war on the infidels who dwell around you (Sura 9:123, 66:9).
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day (Sura 9:29).
Strike off the heads of infidels in battle (Sura 47:4).
If someone stops believing in Allah, kill him (al-Bukhari 9:84:57).
Take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends (Sura 5:51, 60:13).
Never be a helper to the disbelievers (Sura 28:86).
Kill the disbelievers wherever we find them (Sura 2:191).
No Muslim should be killed for killing an infidel (al-Bukhari 1:3:111).
The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land (Sura 5:33).
What motivates fundamental Muslims to violence? Where Jesus was a religious leader, Muhammad was a religious leader and a military leader, thus the effort to separate the militant aspect of Islam from the religious aspect is an attempt to split Muhammad.

The closer one follows the example of Jesus, the more peaceful is one’s motivation.
The closer one follows example of Muhammad, the more militant is one’s motivation.

“ALLAH OR JESUS” By Rick Mathes (The 10 minute video at this link is highly recommended.)- I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers who represented the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths who explained their belief systems. I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say.
   The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam complete with a video. After the presentations time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn I directed my question to the Imam and asked: “Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that all of the Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world. And, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?” There was no disagreement with my statements and without hesitation he replied, “Non-believers!”
   I responded, “So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can go to heaven. Is that correct?” The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He sheepishly replied, “Yes.” I then said, “Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine the Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Pat Robertson or Dr. Stanley ordering Protestants to do the same in order to go to heaven.”
   The Imam was speechless. I continued, “I also have problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me. Let me ask you a question…would you rather have your Allah who tell you to kill me in order to go to heaven or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and wants you to be with me?” You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame.

o Muslim-Marxist Obama must be removed now! - By Larry Klayman July 2014 - A while back, I was excoriated by the left for my speech before the World War II Memorial as thousands of patriots protested Obama's closing of the memorial during the government shutdown. I challenged the Mullah in Chief"to get up off his knees, to put the Quran down, and to come out with his hands up!" Indeed, even some on the right thought that I had gone too far in my characterization of what WND has written is "The First Muslim President."
   But WND's or my characterizations of the Muslim sympathies of Obama pale in comparison to his own words and admissions. Just take a look at this excellently produced YouTube video, which merely allows Obama to indict himself. Here is a summary of what Obama concedes in his own words, along with the startling statement that "we are no longer a Christian nation":
   - Obama concedes that he "lived in Muslim countries," "there are Muslim members of my family," and he "[has] known Islam on three continents. That experience guides my convictions."
   - Obama recites Muslim call to prayer in Arabic accent.
   - Obama attended Muslim schools.
   - School in Jakarta lists "Barry's" religion as Islam.
   - Obama praises and glorifies Islam – "convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith."
   - Obama "know[s] civilizations debt to Islam. It was Islam that carried the light of learning, paying the way for Europe's Renaissance and Enlightenment."
   - Obama quotes from the Quran when addressing the nation several times.
   - Obama believes "Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism; it is an important part of promoting peace". ... "The enduring faith of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few."
   - Obama states, "It is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit."
   - Obama states, "Islam has always been a part of America's story. There is a mosque in every state in the union."
   - Obama gave his first interview as president to an Arab network and stressed his own Muslim background.
   - Obama bows to the Saudi king yet does not bow when meeting the queen of England.
   - Obama, speaking to the Islamic Society of North America, a terrorist-linked network of mosques, says, "Over the last half century, you've upheld the proud legacy of American Muslims legacy to our national fabric ... and [we are] especially grateful to the work its done to advance interfaith understanding here at home and around the world."
   ...Of course, I believe that Obama is aware of all of this. His foreign (and domestic) policy is not naïve or incompetent; it is calculated to bring not just Israel but the United States and its allies to its knees. The damage is not just limited to the Middle East, but also stems from his complicity with President Vladimir Putin of Russia, a former head of the evil KGB and, like Obama, a fellow communist in sheep's clothing. Let there be no mistake! Obama and his leftist comrades in the White House and elsewhere in his administration – including the leftist, self-hating, Marxist Jews he surrounds himself with for cover – do not just sympathize with a Muslim caliphate, but also Putin's march to reconstitute the Soviet Union by annexing Crimea, Georgia and the eastern if not entirety of Ukraine. How else can one explain Obama's inaction to the Hitleresque actions of Putin's Russia, which has been following the Fuhrer's playbook to a T?
   The bottom line is this: Obama and his enablers, including the National Security Agency whose spying on all Americans is meant to enslave us all to this treacherous and calculated tyranny, represent the greatest threat to the survival of our nation in the entire 238 year history of the republic. Obama must be removed NOW by any legal means, or we will soon perish not just as a nation, but also as individuals. 

o Muslim Terrorists Declare “Sexual Jihad” Raping and Killing Christians - By Onan Coca - Muslim “holy” warriors are taking the war to innocent women and children, having declared a sexual jihad on women of the Middle East. ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria have begun pulling women and girls from their homes and raping them whenever they feel the need. The Iraq High Commission for Human Rights is reporting that ISIS has begun demanding a poll tax (or jizya) from Christians in Iraq. Christians who cannot pay the tax are in terrible danger; one family who could not pay was attacked by ISIS terrorists who raped the mother and daughter in front of the husband/father. He was so distraught that he committed suicide.
   Another report from the area said that ISIS had murdered four Christian women for not wearing traditional Islamic veils. ISIS is spewing its evil filth all over the Iraqi and Syrian countryside and no one is safe from them – whether Muslim or Christian. But the evil ISIS monsters seem to take particular joy in hurting innocent women and children. The Christian enclave of Bartella, just outside of Mosul, is bathed in fear as they await the oncoming ISIS onslaught.
   ...Reports of forced “jihad marriage” are rampant across ISIS occupied territory. Yanar Mohammed, the OWFI President explains. Women "are being kidnapped from their house by the ISIS warriors and forced into what they call a 'jihad marriage.'" Jihad marriage, also known as "sexual jihad," is a term for women who willingly offer sexual comfort to fighters to assist the cause of establishing Islamic rule. In the cases to which Mohammed refers, however, the women are not volunteers. They are forced. Over the past week, 18 women were taken from their houses and raped by ISIS in Mosul, according to the latest news obtained by Mohammed.
   The monstrous activities of ISIS are boundless -- these terrorists truly have no shame. In fact, their actions are so disgusting that even some terrorists are worried about the impact ISIS’s depravity may have on worldwide Islam.

o FL Senate Dems Vote against Bill to Protect Women from Sharia Law - by Dave Jolly - With the huge influx of Muslims into America, we are starting to see their Islamic influence on American culture and law. Schools are starting to teach about Islam where they don’t teach anything about Christianity or Judaism. Our president is obviously much more sympathetic to his Muslim friends than to America’s Christians. Islamic or sharia law treats women as nothing more than disposable property. Under sharia law, a Muslim father, brother, uncle, husband or son can beat, rape, torture and even kill a female relative if he believes that she has done anything wrong or caused shame on the family.
   I just reported the case of an Arizona Muslim who held his wife against her will, raped and beat her and then threatened to kill her. He told her that Islamic law allows him to kill her because he suspected she might be having an affair. ...The states that have passed laws to restrict the use of international or foreign laws in their courts include Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee. Florida is now working to pass a similar law. State Sen. Alan Hays (R-Umatilla) introduced SB 386 which would restrict any foreign or international law from being used in any Florida court in matters of divorce, alimony, division of marital assets, child support and custody.
   ...The Florida Senate voted on the bill and it passed 24-14. There are 14 Democrats in the Florida State Senate and all 14 voted against the bill. Some of the Democrats commented that they voted against the bill because they felt it targeted specific religious groups, referring to Islam. The bill has now gone to the House where a similar bill passed last year. Prior to the vote, the Florida chapter of CAIR, an Islamic group that has been linked to Islamic extremists and terrorists in the past, sent letters to GOP senators urging them to reject the bill.
   ...US Rep. Keith Ellison has introduced a piece of legislation that would impose a tax on all financial interest and gains because they are a sin in the Islamic religion. His bill is his way of penalizing those who sin against Islam. Muslims are working to change American law and impose their women hating laws on all of us. The women of Florida should be up in arms about the Democratic opposition to a bill that protects their rights. If sharia law becomes the norm, they will lose many of the rights they have and their lives will be worse than before they had the right to vote. The Florida Republicans were protecting women’s rights by voting for this bill and they need to make that known in their campaigns.

o The Muslim Brotherhood is coming to Your Town - by David L. Goetsch - I have long believed that the long-term plan of Muslims is to take over America—not using bullets and bombs—but using the ballot box. According to godfatherpolitics.com, “With the huge influx of Muslims into the United States and their vow to take over the nation, it should be no surprise to learn that the Muslim Brotherhood here in the U.S. is forming its own political party. They plan to be an important factor in the 2016 elections.” The political party of the Muslim Brotherhood in America is called the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). The USCMO is an umbrella organization that attempts to pull other Muslim organizations together to multiply their power and effectiveness. One of the Muslim organizations in the USCMO’s big tent is the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization with ties to the terrorist group, Hamas. Yet another USCMO confederate group is the Muslim American Society, the American branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
   Colonel Allen West, who has sounded the alarm repeatedly about Muslim intentions in America, had this to say about the USCMO: “USCMO aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of ‘institutionalizing policies’ favorable to Islamists—that is Shariah Law. This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. (Muslim) Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a ‘civilization jihad’ against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and ‘destroying (it) from within’—an expressed objective from the strategic memorandum.”
   ...When Muslims like the man in Detroit who complained that he found an egg hunt insulting to his Muslim beliefs push local communities, locals should push back. Citizens in Detroit should have told this Muslim complainer that if he found American traditions and values insulting he should exercise his freedom to relocate to another country. If you want to stop Muslim extremists from taking over the United States, refuse to sit back and silently accept these types of outrages. The preservation of America’s way of life begins with you, not Congress. Do not allow multi-cultural cowards on school boards to cave in to Muslims who hate everything America stands for. Speak out on behalf of American values and your beliefs and traditons. If a Muslim citizen finds American traditions and values insulting, there are plenty of Muslim countries in the world who will welcome him with open arms and Shariah Law. It is one thing for Americans to afford Muslim citizens the freedom of religion set forth in our Constitution. It is quite another to acquiesce when they demand that we change our values and beliefs to accommodate theirs.

o US centers of Islamic activity form interesting map - By Allen West - The say a picture is worth a thousand words, and here are two that will start a conversation for sure. These two maps of Islamic activity were created a number of years apart by different investigators. I won’t add anything other than I live in a state that is deep blue and was home to Mohammed Atta and several other 9-11 conspirators. However, I do have a question for all you folks out there with a “Coexist” bumper sticker on your Prius: how many churches and synagogues are in Saudi Arabia? When tolerance becomes a one way street, it leads to cultural suicide.

o ‘Carloads’ of terrorists turned Oregon ranch into training camp - By Rich Calder - An Oregon woman says she thought she was opening up her family’s ranch to local Muslims to teach them how to grow and can veggies — and that her husband was even expecting a tax write-off. But US-born Muslim convert Eva Hatley testified in Manhattan federal court Tuesday that after the “carloads’’ of fellow Muslims she met through her mosque arrived at the 160-acre ranch in Bly in 1999, the couple watched helplessly as their home was turned into an al Qaeda training camp.
   “It wasn’t anything like I envisioned for the property,” insisted Hatley, testifying at the trial of one-eyed, hook-handed hate preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri.
Hatley, a two-time witness-protection-program flunky who prefers going by her Muslim name, Ayat Hakimah, said other Muslims from London would soon arrive on al-Masri’s orders. Hatley’s then-husband, Ivan Rule, was temporarily out of town “shepherding” while his longtime ranch was being overrun with terrorists-in-training, she said. According to al-Masri’s lawyer last week, the camp was similar to being in the “Cub Scouts,’’ with the men riding horses, tending to little lambs and telling campfire stories.
   But Hatley said one of the arrivals, militant Oussama Kassir, boasted about previously running training camps in Afghanistan and being a “hit man” for Osama bin Laden. She said Kassir told her that al-Masri was his “leader” and that al-Masri sent him and others to the Bly ranch to create a “training camp” where men would learn to shoot guns, throw knives and do calisthenics along open, spacious fields abutting a ravine and desolate dirt roads.
   “He said he was there to train men for jihad,” she said. “He said that Abu Hamza sent him. He intended to train them to fight.” The visitors, she claimed, said the ranch resembled Afghanistan. She added that some had CDs with information on how to make poisons to “kill people” and regularly “talked” about “robbing and killing truck drivers” on nearby roads. Kassir, she recalled, claimed there were plans to eventually dig a hillside compound at the ranch for al-Masri to hide out in. 

o CAIR-MI Fails to Silence TMLC President - The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) attempted to silence a speech by Richard Thompson to the Greater Oakland Republican Club on the internal threat posed to America by Radical Islam by using their customary name-calling intimidation tactics, which have proven successful in the past.  This time their tactics did not work. Thompson, the President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, was invited to speak on Tuesday, April 1st.  On Monday, however, CAIR-MI launched a press release demanding that the Republican Club disinvite Thompson, labeling him a “notorious Islamophobe” with a “long track record of fear-mongering.”  The Club refused to cave-in to the ploy and the speech went on as planned in a packed room.
   Thompson, responding to the Club’s decision not to cave-in to CAIR, commented, “I applaud the Greater Oakland Republican Club for its steadfast defense of the constitutional right to free speech.  Sadly, too many groups and individuals lack the moral courage to say “No” to CAIR.  And as long as their bullying tactics work on some weak-kneed Americans, they will continue their efforts to restrict free speech.” Thompson began his speech by informing the audience that they have witnessed first-hand the operation of Sharia law—silencing the free speech right of anyone who dares criticize Islam.  Thompson went on to describe CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial where the supposed charity and five of its organizers were found guilty by a federal jury of illegally funneling more than $12 million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.  Thompson also pointed to the stated plans of one of CAIR’s founders, Omar Ahmad, that Islam is in America to become dominant and the highest authority.  
   Thompson also quoted a statement from the FBI’s former chief of counterterrorism, “CAIR, its leaders and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.” The University of Michigan is the most recent entity to capitulate to CAIR’s campaign to silence any criticism of Islam.  As a result of CAIR’s intimidation tactics, the University cancelled screenings of “Honor Diaries,” a film which details the truth about the brutal violence against women in Muslim countries.
   According to Megyn Kelly on the Kelly File, (a great video to watch) numerous screenings of the film have been cancelled due to demands from CAIR including a screening at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor originally scheduled for  April 3, 2014.  CAIR and CAIR-MI often demand the cancellation of events they deem “Islamophobic;” a term meant to intimidate and force event organizers into cancellations.
   Clearly, the reason for CAIR’s personal attacks on Thompson stem from the fact that as a public interest law firm, TMLC, has led the fight against the threat of Radical Islam and the Stealth Jihad in the courts. Brooke Goldstein, a human rights attorney, in response to CAIR’s involvement in shutting down the “Honor Diaries” film said, “CAIR operates as the Islamic speech police. It goes around bullying and intimidating anyone who is brave enough to speak publically about the threat of Islam and Islamist terrorism and violence in the Muslim world.” Goldstein continued, “CAIR has a systematic campaign to go around and target anybody who speaks publically about the threat of militant Islam as Islamophobic.” 

o Islamberg, USA . The Muslim Only Town Where Residents Learn Guerilla Warfare Tactics Islamberg, located in rural upstate New York, is a 70 acre  underground-bunkered paramilitary Islamic compound. Here within the compound lives a Muslim only community. The majority of these are black  american born males, hardened criminals who converted to radical Islam whilst serving time in state prison. It is also the headquarters of Muslims of the Americas, the International Quranic Open University  and the United Muslim Christian Forum. Islamberg is the best known among 35 such compounds, ranging in size from 25 to 300 acres, that already dot 22 states across America. Evidence suggests these Islamic compounds and the convicted criminals who live their are participating in jihad training and using crime to raise funds. (Much more at link.)

o Stunning Facts: Muslims Discussing Muslims Living in Here in the West Source: MEMRI TV (YouTube) - Egyptian Islamist Researcher Ali Abd Al-Aal - and others  Posted by: RC_Anderson - Click here for referenced article. Analyst's note: This should absolutely get your attention, they're already getting your money ... next your life. Please share this material. The astounding facts are clearly discussed about the sorry state of the Muslim living here in the West.  It is interesting to see that the only thing about which they agree is the need to ultimately kill Americans.  Europe, and now America is paying the jizya with humiliation and servility!  The Religion of peace with sharia law... not so much. 
   Think Muslim Brotherhood who is helping provide cover for their goings and comings here.  Perhaps now we will be willing to reform welfare and the majority of the unskilled Muslim population will leave.  Then again we are suffering the wiles of the "progressives" voters who continue to allow the Obama administration doing its best to destroy America.  Don't miss Ray Stevens in the last video. ******    
   Published on Oct 22, 2012 80 % of the 50 million Muslims in the west are on welfare, they refuse to work said muslim expert. They discuss muslim lack of contribution the the western societies they reside in, the high crime rates, the high rate of welfare fraud and financial crimes. Muslim arrive as refugees or illegals and deplete the wealth from the west to such an extent that it's a threat to the security and financial stability in the west. The welfare paid in EU is adopted to the income levels of workers and the cost of living in the EU. Welfare was never intended as foreign aid to enable mass immigration to Europe, but welfare is the magnet which pulls in ten of millions of new non-european immigrants to Europe. 
   If the required minimum amount to live on in Europe is $20,000 annually and 40 million muslims live on welfare, the cost is staggering 800 billion dollars annually only for the muslim immigrants. This amount may double if we take into account all other non-european immigrants living on welfare and add the cost of crime and social implosion the welfare mass immigration is causing. Most politicians agree this is not working but almost nobody has a plan how to stop the continued mass immigration nor what to do with those how already is here in Europe depleting the EU economies.

o Uncle Sam's Misguided Children - CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS - This is certainly 'food-for-thought'. This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish. And share it with everyone. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:

- Theologically - no. ... Because his allegiance is to Allah.
- Religiously - no.. . .. Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam ... (Quran, 2:256) (Koran)
- Scripturally - no. .. .. Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
- Geographically - no .. Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day..
- Socially - no. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews ...
- Politically - no... Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , the great Satan.
- Domestically - no. .. . Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34 )
- Intellectually - no... Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
- Philosophically - no. . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic
- Spiritually - no... Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' The Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 excellent names.

Therefore, after much study and deliberation....perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both 'good' Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish it's still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our countries and our future. The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.

Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. SO FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.

o Germany: Paying for Muslim polygamy - In an amazing expose on German television (English subtitles) the explosion of polygamy in Germany is exposed. Because of the generous German welfare system, even an unemployed Muslim man can afford more than one wife.  

o THE COST OF ISLAMIC INCEST By Nicolai Sennels - A tragic phenomenon which is taking a terrible toll on everyone involved. There is a dire phenomenon rising in Europe that is crippling entire societies and yet the continent sleeps, refusing not only to confront the destructive elephant in the room, but also to admit its very existence. The troubling reality being referred to is the widespread practice of Muslim inbreeding and the birth defects and social ills that it spawns. The tragic effect of the Left’s control of the boundaries of debate is that any discussion about vital issues such as these marks an individual as an “Islamophobe” and a “racist." A person who dares to point at the pathology of inbreeding in the Muslim community is accused of whipping up hatred against Muslim people.
   ...Massive inbreeding among Muslims has been going on since their prophet allowed first-cousin marriages more than 50 generations (1,400 years) ago. For many Muslims, therefore, intermarriage is regarded as being part of their religion. In many Muslim communities, it is a source of social status to marry one’s daughter or son to his or her cousin. Intermarriage also ensures that wealth is kept within the family.
   ...Today, 70% of all Pakistanis are inbred and in Turkey the amount is between 25-30% (Jyllands-Posten, 27/2 2009 “More stillbirths among immigrants“). A rough estimate reveals that close to half of everybody living in the Arab world is inbred. A large percentage of the parents that are blood related come from families where intermarriage has been a tradition for generations. A BBC investigation in Britain several years ago revealed that at least 55% of the Pakistani community in Britain was married to a first cousin. The Times of India affirmed that “this is thought to be linked to the probability that a British Pakistani family is at least 13 times more likely than the general population to have children with recessive genetic disorders.” The BBC’s research also discovered that while British Pakistanis accounted for just 3.4% of all births in Britain, they accounted for 30% of all British children with recessive disorders and a higher rate of infant mortality.
   ...Medical evidence shows that one of the negative consequences of inbreeding is a 100% increase in the risk of stillbirths. One study comparing Norwegians and Pakistanis shows the risk that the child dies during labour increases by 50%. The risk of death due to autosomal recessive disorders — e.g., cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy — is 18 times higher. Risk of death due to malformations is 10 times higher. Mental health is also at risk: the probability of depression is higher in communities where consanguine marriages are also high. The closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of mental and physical retardation and schizophrenic illness. And then there are the findings on intelligence. Research shows that if one’s parents are cousins, intelligence goes down 10-16 IQ points. The risk of having an IQ lower than 70 (criterion for being “retarded”) increases 400% among children from cousin marriages.  

o “Peaceful” Muslims Destroy Dozens of WW2 Headstones by Dave Jolly - I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone say that Islam is a religion of peace.  They pose no threat to anyone.  All they want is to live in peace and enjoy the same freedoms and privileges that we do. I didn’t believe it then and certainly don’t believe it now. What I see of the religion of peace is an entire culture taught that anyone that is not a Muslim is an infidel and the Quran tells them that infidels should be killed.  I’ve read and talked to many Muslims from countries like Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Pakistan who all say the same thing that they were taught as young boys to hate Christians, Jews and especially Americans.
   I worked with a man who spent every penny he had to smuggle him and his family out of Iran back with Jimmy Carter was president and in the heart of the Tehran hostage situation.  He was a licensed doctor, but the US would not recognize his medical license, so he worked with me at a hardware-lumber store.  We often talked and he told me how in school growing up, all of the boys (girls were not allowed to attend school) were taught to hate America.  It was drilled into them day after day after day that their goal in life should be to grow up and help destroy America and they would be a hero if they were martyred in the process.
America has witnessed Muslim attacks including Benghazi and the murder of 4 Americans. 
   Let’s not forget the attack on the USS Cole; the 1983 attack on the US Embassy in Beirut that killed 63 and injured 120 more.  Then there was the first attack on the World Trade Center in New York in 1993 that killed 6; the attack on the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 that killed 224 and injured over 4000 others. We all remember September 11, 2001 when Muslim extremists commandeered 4 passenger airliners that were used to attack the two World Trade Centers, the Pentagon and a fourth failed attempt that all toll killed over 3,000 and wounded thousands of others. But don’t feel that we are the sole targets of the world’s peaceful Muslims. They have launched attacks on Israel, one of which killed the Israeli Olympic team at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
   In case you need to see just how peaceful and respectful Muslims are of others, take a look at this video.  It was taken by a Muslim who was part of a mob that vandalized and desecrated a cemetery that contained the remains of British and Italian soldiers killed during World War 2.  The cemetery just happens to be located in Benghazi, where the same peaceful Muslims attacked the US Embassy last year. These Muslims show no respect for the fallen men who died in war.  If anyone did that to a Muslim cemetery, the entire Muslim world community would be up in arms demanding the death of those involved. Islam is the most intolerant religion in the world and they continually prove that by their actions.
   Muslims expect us to welcome them with open arms and believe that nothing will change after they move into the neighborhood.  But look at places like Dearborn, Michigan which has the largest enclave of Muslims in the US.  They are taking over the city government, the schools and even public events like fairs.  Muslim judges have already issued rulings based upon sharia law which went against American law. Islam is not a religion of peace and they don’t want just to move in and be part of our neighborhoods.  They have an agenda to convert America into the United States of Allah and I guarantee that we Christians will be more persecuted than ever before. 

o VIDEO: Muslim Patrols Enforcing Sharia Law in London Below is a video of Muslim "patrols" enforcing Sharia law in parts of London. The video was removed from YouTube because they said it violated their policy "prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten." It then resurfaced on Media Research Center's website. The video only vaguely "threatens" the casual viewer on YouTube. But it is a major embarrassment to radical Islamists with their stealth jihad, who would have had an interest in seeing it taken down as soon as possible. The "Muslim Patrol" YouTube channel has been terminated as well. If you want a glimpse of the future, should we stay the course we're on. Watch at the link:

o Muslim doctors of death – The jihad terror attack on Ft. Hood in 2009 was the work of a Muslim doctor. Surprisingly, this is not unusual. In a study of 75 jihadists responsible for the four most serious terrorist incidents across the world between 1993 and 2005, experts Peter Bergen and Swati Pandey found the most popular subjects studied among those who had attended university were engineering and medicine. Two-thirds of the 25 terrorists involved in the 9/11 attacks had attended university. Five years ago in 2007 Debbie Schlussel prepared an extensive list of Muslim doctors involved in terror. Yet another medical doctor who conducted acts of terror was arrested in the UK in October.

Cops to answer in court for 'stoning' of Christians Hundreds of angry Muslims threw chunks of concrete and eggs at a team of Christians, spraying them with urine and cursing at them – all while police stood by and then threatened the victims with "disorderly conduct." Egypt? Saudi Arabia? Somalia? No. Dearborn, Michigan. Now, the police who stood passively by as the Christians were assaulted are being called to account. ---  

Hundreds of angry Muslims threw chunks of concrete and eggs at a team of Christians, spraying them with urine and cursing at them – all while police stood by and then threatened the victims with “disorderly conduct.” ...So now a team of attorneys from the American Freedom Law Center is going to court on behalf of the victims of the violent Muslim mob at the Arab International Festival last June, an attack that was captured on video. The federal civil rights complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan names as defendants officials from the Wayne County sheriff’s office who “sided with the Muslim mob intent on suppressing the Christians’ speech.” 

The complaint explains authorities not only failed to protect the Christians, they ordered them to leave the Arab Festival under threat of arrest for “disorderly conduct.” However, not one Muslim was arrested for the attack that left several members of the Christian group bloodied, the complaint states. Among the defendants is Deputy Chief Mike Jaafar, a Muslim who was featured in the now-canceled show “All American Muslim,” which appeared on The Learning Channel.  

o Sharia Law Is Not a Threat? Ask the Residents of Northern Mali by da Tagliare - I recently wrote about California politicians urging support of Sharia law and claiming that it is not a threat to Americans or American law. If these liberal politicians truly believe this, then they need to talk to the residents of northern Mali. In March of this year, armed Islamic radicals, with ties to al Qaeda, took control of parts of northern Mali, including several towns. Since the Islamic take over, Sharia law has been imposed and strictly enforced. The results have been the cutting off of the hand of a thief, public whippings of couples deemed illegitimate along with people who drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes. They have forbidden many youth from playing soccer or watching television. One couple was accused of having relations without being married. The sentence, which was promptly carried out was stoning to death.

The people of northern Mali at first welcomed the Islamists because they seem to respect the people and treat them well. The Islamists gave the locals gifts during their holy month of Ramadan. It wasn’t long after being welcomed in that the Islamists exerted force and took control of the area and established Sharia law as the rule to be followed. Supporters of Islam and Sharia law here in the United States all say that these are extremists and that this could never happen here. That’s what the people of northern Mali also said and look what is happening there. Islamists claimed to be their friends and pose no threat, but it wasn’t long before the crouching tiger bared its teeth and began to snarl.

o Muslims: 'Wipe Christianity from face of earth' Threatens to place those who resist Islamic system of world government 'under a police state' By Michael Carl - The 23-page booklet, “The Global Islamic Civilization: The Power of a Nation Revived,” is the brainchild of the United Muslim Nations International, a group led by Sheik Farook al-Mohammedi. The document outlines a plan for Muslim world domination and the re-establishment of the Caliphate. Al-Mohammedi leaves no doubt about his view of Christianity. “Christianity should be destroyed and wiped from the face of the earth,” al-Mohammedi said. “It is an evil demonic and Anti-Christ system, all Christians are in complete Ignorance.” The sheik includes a veiled threat in his remarks. “Islamic Power has returned upon the face of the earth and the Revived Global Caliphate has set eyes on the West to once and for all rid the world of Christianity and there is nothing you can do about it,” al-Mohammedi said. He makes his objective clear. “I have pledged and made a firm promise to the Caliphate of the United Muslim Nations International organization that I will do my utmost to Islamize all of the West within a short period of time,” al-Mohammedi said.

o Filmmaker Reveals Truth About Mosques in America Like most liberals, Eric Allen Bell supported the building of Mosques in the name of religious freedom (of course that is for every religion except Christianity) because he never bothered to research the reality that is Islam. But unlike his other liberal 'friends', he decided to look into the subject to make sure his opinions had validity. Islam is not a very difficult puzzle to understand once one begins to do the research. Try as you may, there is only one direction that all roads lead to once you begin to actually read and study the history of Islam, Mohamed and The Koran. Eric Allen Bell fortunately realized this very soon once he began his simple and brief journey into the reality of Islam.  

o Islam Dismantled In 6 Minutes Pat Condell

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?

o American Minute - His wife and mother died on Valentine's Day, 1884. Depressed, he left to ranch in the Dakotas. Returning to New York, he entered politics and rose to Assistant Secretary of the Navy. He resigned during the Spanish-American War, organized the first Volunteer Cavalry, "the Rough Riders," and captured Cuba's San Juan Hill. Elected Vice-President under William McKinley, he became America's youngest President in 1901. This was Theodore Roosevelt, born OCTOBER 27, 1858. In 1909, Roosevelt warned: "The thought of modern industry in the hands of Christian charity is a dream worth dreaming. The thought of industry in the hands of paganism is a nightmare beyond imagining. The choice between the two is upon us." In his book Fear God and Take Your Part, 1916, Theodore Roosevelt wrote: "Christianity is not the creed of Asia and Africa at this moment solely because the seventh 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. If the peoples of Europe in the 7th and 8th centuries, and on up to and including the 17th century, had not possessed a military equality with, and gradually a growing superiority over the Mohammedans who invaded Europe, Europe would at this moment be Mohammedan and the Christian religion would be exterminated." Theodore Roosevelt continued: "Wherever the Mohammedans have had complete sway, wherever the Christians have been unable to resist them by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared. From the hammer of Charles Martel to the sword of Jan Sobieski, Christianity owed its safety in Europe to the fact that it was able to show that it could and would fight as well as the Mohammedan aggressor."

o Author sees Islam's 20-year plan for U.S. - Arab-American author outlines secret 20-year strategy to undermine country - ''The following is my analysis of Islamic invasion of America, the agenda of Islamists and visible methods to take over America by the year 2020,'' Shorrosh says. ''Will Americans continue to sleep through this invasion as they did when we were attacked on 9/11?''

o Mosques Flourish in America; Churches Perish in Muslim World – by Raymond Ibrahim - While Islamists complain about Western "Islamophobia" while building mosques, their MidEast counterparts are engaged in persecution and repression of non-Muslims.

Now with progressive political correctness prominent, unrighteous justice and tolerance without boundaries is diminishing freedom for Marxism, which will allow Islam to easily conquer. 

o If we do not stop Islam at our shores, we will have to stop it in our streets By Bryan Fischer - The NYPD has identified 53 mosques in New York alone that represent terrorist threats of one kind or another.

John Quincy Adams wrote in his “Essay on Turks” (1829): “The natural hatred of the Mussulmen towards the infidels is in just accordance with the precepts of the Koran...The fundamental doctrine of the Christian religion is the extirpation of hatred from the human heart. It forbids the exercise of it, even towards enemies...In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab...spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth...He declared undistinguishing and exterminating war as a part of his religion...The essence of his doctrine was violence and lust, to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature.”

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805 – 1859), Written in a letter to Arthur de Gobineau, 22 October 1843, reproduced in the “Tocqueville Reader”p. 229: “I studied the Koran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.” 

 


o Davy Crockett's Tennessee heirs now battle Islam ...Cornerstone Church was the venue for a speech in May by the controversial Geert Wilders in which he warned Americans not to "make the mistake which Europe made." "Do not allow Islam to gain a foothold here," Wilders said. "Islam is dangerous. Islam wants to establish a state on earth, ruled by Islamic Shariah law. Islam aims for the submission, whether by persuasion, intimidation or violence, of all non-Muslims, including Christians." After yesterday's conference, Cornerstone Senior Pastor Maury Davis told WND that churches, of all places, shouldn't be shy about telling the truth in the face of resistance. "I view Christianity as world-changing – the apostles were men who turned the world upside down," he said. "Everywhere Paul went, there was a riot, they went to prison. "Truth creates a problem when it encounters the darkness," Davis explained. "And I don't think I heard anything today that wasn't true. There may have been things said in a way I wouldn't have said them. And I may have said things in a way other people wouldn't have said it. That's the neat thing about being an American. We have freedom of speech, and the people who can't handle freedom of speech ought to stay in a country where it is not allowed.

...The founder and chairman of the coalition, which aims to "educate citizens on the realities of Shariah and stop the growth of radical Islam, is Andy Miller, whose life took a radical turn on 9/11 when he was working on Wall Street. Andy Miller The Tennessee native lost more than 100 friends in the attacks, and he immediately wanted to do something about it. "I thought, literally, I should enroll and become an Army sniper or something," he told WND. "After calming down, I thought the best I could do was learn why they hated us as much as they seemed to." He went straight to the source and read Islam's guiding texts: the Quran, the hadiths that tell the stories of Islam's prophet Muhammad and the Sunnah, which instructs Muslims on how they should live. "The answer became clear," he said, "that it was about the ideology, and the fact that it's an all-encompassing ideology that causes them to want to dominate the world."  

..."My issue is with Islam," Miller said. "I feel sorry for most Muslims, because I think that they are caught in a trap. How many 'religions' do you know of that if you leave it, you get a death sentence?" Miller just returned from a week touring Europe and some of its "no go" zones, where law enforcement has lost control in Muslim communities. 

o Pedophilia is OK – Says Islam’s “Perfect Man” Mohamed

Muslim (8:3309) – Muhammad consummated his marriage to Aisha when she was only nine.
Muslim (8:3311) – The girl took her dolls with her to Muhammad's house (something to play with when the "prophet" was not having sex with her).

And all real Muslims know that they must follow the teachings and the example set by Mohamed or else they are not good Muslims and they disrespect Islam and Allah. So it is only natural that Muslims would 'take this and run with it.'  From London to Minneapolis, and every other country in which Muslim immigrants are a fact of life, gang rape rates as well as child sex and prostitution rings are increasing at alarming rates.   The latest example comes out of not Africa or the Middle East, but from Manchester England.  

Muslim Pedophilia Gangs Turning Young Teenage White Girls Into Serial Rape Victims Posted: November 8, 2011 | Author: barenakedislam “He was like my owner and I was like his dog,” says 13-year-old victim of Muslim rape gangs. Dawn raids across Manchester as police move in on gang who groomed under-age girls at drug-fuelled sex parties. Dozens of vulnerable teenage girls may have been rescued from the clutches of Muslim paedophiles after a major police operation smashed a Muslim child sex gang. The victims were showered with gifts and then plied with drink and drugs before being taken to special ‘sex parties’ in Manchester and Salford.  At the parties the teenage girls – some as young as 14 – would be compelled to have sex with friends of the gang in what police say was a classic case of ‘Muslim sexual grooming and entrapment.’  …. Figures show there have been 18 Muslim sex gang prosecutions since 1997 – 15 in the last three years – involving girls aged 11-16.


Islamic Antichrist?  - By Bob Unruh © 2011 WorldNetDaily - Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck today said

 Americans should be alarmed over the revelations of a WND Books release, "The Islamic Antichrist," in which author Joel Richardson documents the similarities between the "bad guy" of the Bible, the Antichrist, and the "good guy" of the Quran, the Mahdi. The author contends they are, in fact, the same. "You have to look at this, really ask yourself, 'Wow, is this true?'" Beck said. He also cited the Islamic teachings that some Muslims like Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believe – that they can speed the coming of the Madhi, their end-times savior, by creating chaos, from which they expect him to emerge. Beck, applying such a belief to Christianity, suggested facetiously, "What do you say we go start slaughtering people so Jesus will come back?" (Read it for yourself, "The Islamic Antichrist.") Richardson's book discusses his analysis of the Bible's account of the end times and that of the Quran, including his conclusions about the "Antichrist," who is described by the Bible as the ultimate enemy of God and His people, the Jews and Christians. The Mahdi, meanwhile, in Islam is forecast to come to establish a worldwide Islamic caliphate.

Beck cited a number of similarities between the prophecies regarding the Antichrist in the Bible and the Mahdi in the Islamic tradition. "You have the bad guy of the Bible, he primarily persecutes God's people, Jews and Christians," Richardson said. Meanwhile the "12th imam," or Islam's Mahdi, "causes Jews and Christians to submit to Islam or be killed." Both prophecies call for a time of rule of 7 years, a leader of the world who makes peace with Israel but then breaks the accord, and then invades Israel and kills nonbelievers, setting up a seat of government on the Temple Mount. While the biblical Antichrist is evil personified, the culmination of antagonism to God and His word, Richardson described in a column for WND the Islamic perspective: "The Mahdi is Islam's primary messiah figure Muslims believe will come at the end of the age to lead Islam to global dominance. Much popular discussion of Mahdism in recent years has inaccurately expressed that belief in the Mahdi is merely a Shia phenomenon. While variances in the details do exist between Sunni and Shia Muslims on this issue, belief in the Mahdi is nevertheless not reserved to one group or the other. Numerous renowned Muslim scholars, Sunni, Sufi and Shia affirm the orthodoxy of belief in the coming of the Mahdi." Beck noted that the Mahdi story results in a character that is the "polar opposite" of the biblical prophecy, and another guest, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, agreed.


Caliphate

Scandinavia finally learns -- the hard way Donald Hank - Scandinavia, having been forced — along with other countries with strong economies — by their EU Rulers to pay bailouts to irresponsible banks and governments, and having witnessed first-hand the damage done by hordes of hostile Muslim immigrants, has been turning steadily rightward, as shown by a landmark election in 2006. The Swedish welfare state has been collapsing due in large part to the importation of overwhelming numbers of Muslims who indulge in crimes like rape, and theft that native Swedes have long eschewed. In one interview, Muslim criminals claimed they enjoyed robbing Swedes because they are wimps who never resist and because they don't like the way Swedes look at them. Like their counterparts throughout Europe, the Swedes are definitely wimps, no doubts about it. A Swedish sociology prof says the solution is "jobs for everyone."

In other words, keep importing Muslims who hate you, keep them on the social assistance (welfare) rolls, but for goodness sakes, give the poor things your job. That will solve everything by putting you the Swedes on welfare and letting them pay your way for a change. If someone broke into his home and raped his wife, I wonder if this sweet professor would offer the rapist-thief a job. In response, political parties labeled as "ultraright" by the ultraleft (the average university "educated" European professional these days) are surging in Scandinavia.

Just this week, the nationalist, anti-EU True Finns party won dramatic electoral gains, showing that an increasing number of Finns have had enough of bailouts and hostile immigrants rammed down their throats by the tyrannical Brussels bureaucrats-in-chief. Unfortunately, in the US, the people and their politicians are prioritizing anything but illegal immigration and that spells trouble ahead. According to Judicial Watch, the Obama administration's answer to illegal immigration and drug trafficking by Mexicans in the US is to make it impossible for the Border Patrol to interfere with their "business"! It is tragic that so few seem to care. But like Europe, we may have to learn this lesson the hard way.

Gaining Control Through Democracy: The New Strategy of Muslim Brotherhood by Dr. Mark A. Gabriel - An interview given by Dr. Hussein Mahmoud, Secretary General of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood shows that his group intends to gain power via the ballot box - and then introduce sharia law.

LIBERAL MEDIA HAVING SECOND THOUGHTS - The current edition of The Villager, a very liberal, pro-gay, pro-Obama, pro-anything-but-America weekly in New York City seems to be having second thoughts about the Cordoba House or Park 51 or P51 or whatever it is being called now. Most Americans (but not the Villager) call the project the Ground Zero mosque because it is being built on the human remains of the victims of 9-11. In an editorial this week the Villager looks at the project differently than when it was announced: "Nine months later, that original presentation seems like a mischaracterization, at best. At worst, it seems like nothing more than the jump-off point for a public-relations spin campaign. The message we applauded and the project this community center has become are now murky and muddled." (Complete editorial) Suddenly left leaning journalists are coming to realize that Sharif el-Gamal, the for-profit developer with the credit problems, and party animal Imam Feisal Rauf are not exactly cut from the same cloth. Those of us who understand Islam at its core knew that the project was "murky and muddled" from the beginning because we are familiar with taqiyya. Taqiyya is the allowance in Islam for Muslims to lie to non-Muslims for the purpose of advancing Islam.

INDONESIAN MOBS DESTROY CHURCHES - How often do we hear in the media about the "moderate" Muslims of Indonesia? Well, those moderate Muslims attacked Christians and destroyed several churches because a Christian accused of "blasphemy" was sentenced to only five years in jail. The crowd first attacked the Catholic Church of Saints Peter and Paul and wounded the priest. Father Saldanha was beaten by the mob, which then attacked and set fire to two Protestant churches, Bethel Church and Pantekosta Church, before terrorizing a Catholic orphanage and a hospital run by the Sisters of Providence.

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.

Graphic Video: Muslims Slaughter "Apostate" in Tunisia by Raymond Ibrahim (June 2012) - Liberal talk show host Tawfiq Okasha recently appeared on "Egypt Today," airing a video of Muslims slicing off a young man's head off for the crime of apostasy -- in this instance, the crime of converting to Christianity and refusing to renounce it. The video—be warned, it is immensely graphic—can be seen here (the actual execution appears from minute 1:13-4:00). For those who prefer not to view it, a summary follows:   

A young man appears held down by masked men. His head is pulled back, with a knife to his throat. He does not struggle and appears resigned to his fate. Speaking in Arabic, the background speaker, or "narrator," chants a number of Muslim prayers and supplications, mostly condemning Christianity, which, because of the Trinity, is referred to as a polytheistic faith: "Let Allah be avenged on the polytheist apostate"; "Allah empower your religion, make it victorious against the polytheists"; "Allah, defeat the infidels at the hands of the Muslims," and "There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger." Then, to cries of "Allahu Akbar!"— Allah is greater!"—the masked man holding the knife to the apostate's throat begins to slice away, severing the head completely after approximately one minute of graphic knife-carving, as the victim drowns in blood. Finally, the severed head is held aloft to more Islamic slogans of victory.   

...Only the other day, a prominent Egyptian Salafi leader -- referring to the canonical hadiths, including Muhammad's command, "Whoever leaves his religion, kill him" -- openly stated that no Muslim has the right to apostatize, or leave Islam. Any number of Islamic legal manuals make explicitly clear that apostasy is a capital crime, punishable by death. The first "righteous caliph," a model of Muslim piety, had tens of thousands of former Muslims slaughtered—including by burning, beheading, and crucifixion—simply because they tried to break away from Islam. According to the Encyclopaedia of Islam, the most authoritative reference work on Islam in the English language, "there is unanimity that the male apostate must be put to death."

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 HollandLondon 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?

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 hijacked.

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.


Mohammed

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 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.

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."

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?  


"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

American Minute for February 16th: “The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco,” stated President Obama in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009. Explaining this, Governor William Bradford wrote that in 1625, a Pilgrim ship was returning to England with dried fish and 800 lbs of beaver skins to trade for supplies: “They...were well within the England channel, almost in sight of Plymouth. But...there she was unhapply taken by a Turkish man-of-war and carried off to Morocco where the captain and crew were made slaves.”

Muslim pirates of Morocco raided European coasts and carried away over a million to the North African slavemarkets, where also they sold tens of millions of Africans into slavery. In 1627, Algerian Muslim pirates, led by Murat Reis the Younger, raided Iceland, and carried 400 into slavery. One captured girl, who had been made a slave concubine in Algeria, was rescued back by King Christian IV of Denmark.
 
On June 20, 1631, the entire village of Baltimore, Ireland, “The Stolen Village,” was captured by Muslim pirates. Only two ever returned. Thomas Osborne Davis wrote in his poem, “The Sack of Baltimore” (1895): “The yell of ‘Allah!’ breaks above the shriek and roar; O’blessed God! the Algerine is lord of Baltimore.” Kidnapped Englishman Francis Knight wrote: “I arrived in Algiers, that city fatal to all Christians and the butchery of mankind.”
 
Moroccan Sultan Moulay Ismail had 500 wives and forced 25,000 white slaves to build his palace at Meknes. He was witnessed to have killed an African slave just to try out a new hatchet he was given. The Catholic Order “Trinitarians” collected alms to ransom slaves.
 
In 1785, Morocco recognized the new country of the United States by capturing two American ships and demanding tribute. Jefferson met Tripoli’s envoy in France and reported to Congress: “The Ambassador answered us that it was...written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged Islam’s authority were sinners, that it was their...duty to make war upon them...and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.”
 
Despite paying nearly 20 percent of the U.S. Federal budget as extortion payments, the Muslims continued their piracy. Jefferson finally sent the U.S. Marines to stop Morocco's Barbary pirates. The U.S. frigate "Philadelphia" ran aground on Morocco's shallow coast and was captured.
 
On FEBRUARY 16, 1804, in what Admiral Horatio Nelson called the “most bold and daring act of the age,” Lieut. Stephen Decatur sailed his ship, the Intrepid, into the pirate harbor of Tripoli, burned the captured U.S. frigate “Philadelphia” and escaped amidst enemy fire. The Marines later captured Tripoli and forced the Pasha to make peace on U.S. terms.
 
Frederick Leiner wrote in The End of the Barbary Terror-America’s 1815 War Against the Pirates of North Africa (Oxford University Press): “Commodore Stephen Decatur and diplomat William Shaler withdrew to consult in private...The Algerians were believed to be masters of duplicity, willing to make agreements and break them as they found convenient.” John Quincy Adams, America's 6th President, wrote: ”Our gallant Commodore Stephen Decatur had chastised the pirate of Algiers...The Dey (Omar Bashaw)...disdained to conceal his intentions; 'My power,' said he, 'has been wrested from my hands; draw ye the treaty at your pleasure, and I will sign it; but beware of the moment, when I shall recover my power, for with that moment, your treaty shall be waste paper.'”
 
America's war with the Muslim Barbary Pirates was the country's first war after the Revolution, giving rise to the Marine Anthem: "From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli." 

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”[1] 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.”[2] 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[4] 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.”[5]

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.[6]

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.[7]

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.[8]

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!”[9] 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.” ...


Islamist Infiltration

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.

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.

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: ...

  • As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
  • At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
  • From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
  • When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris -- car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam -- Mohammed cartoons).
  • After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
  • At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
  • From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
  • After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:
  • 100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam" -- the Isla mic House of Peace -- there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

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.

7 days. How long will it take islam to destroy a western country? The world?

“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)

Commentary:

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


Saudi Arabia's Curriculum of Intolerance -- CBN.com SAUDI EMBASSY, Washington - All the way from elementary school to 12th grade, some Saudi textbooks are teaching hatred of Jews and Christians.  As another school year winds down, students across the U.S. are reflecting on what they have learned. The same is true in Saudi Arabia where young people can spend their summer vacation mulling over lessons like these:

"Every religion other than Islam is false." "It is forbidden for a Muslim to be loyal friends to someone who does not believe in Allah and his prophet..."

 "...the Arabs and Muslims will emerge victorious, Allah willing, against the Jews and their allies if they stand together and fight a true jihad for Allah..."

"...the apes are Jews, the keepers of the sabbath; while the swine are the Christian infidels of the communion of Jesus."


"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.

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

Italian Author Researches "Phenomenon" of Islamic Conversions to Christianity

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.
