Destroying Sculptures of Muhammad

Daniel Pipes provides an essay that demonstrates (what he calls) soft Islam is as dangerous to the West as violent Islam.

There is a bit of irony though I would like to point out. The theme is the removal of depictions of Mohammed from public buildings especially Court Houses that depict Mohammed as on of a long line historical figures that that were Law Givers. The irony is that I agree with the Mohammedans that these depictions of Mohammed should be removed; however for different reasons than Mohammedans would express.

You see, I am a proud Islamophobe that believes Mohammedanism is a threat to Western Culture. So yeah, let’s dump Mohammed depictions.

Obama and his Anti-Israel Friends

I posted suspicions about Barack Hussein Obama’s allegiances regardless of his public profession of Christianity and his public stipulation that close ties would be imperative with our ally Israel if elected President.

I openly wondered just how believable Obama’s assertions are considering his association with people that have been mentors or are current mentors (personally or from afar). These influential people in Obama’s life
have been Louis Farrakhan and his UMC Pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Jr. Also Obama has associated with pro-terrorist individuals in fund raisers. And apparently has developed a friendship with Weathermen terrorists who were American anti-war Lefties that murdered people to bring attention to their message.

I openly wondered how the Mainstream Media (MSM) and even Conservatives do not want to rock the boat of Obama’s charismatic popularity. The MSM because they primarily Leftist and they think they have found the man that hasten America’s change to the delusion of an American utopia. The Conservatives because it is Politically Incorrect call Obama on his assertions as opposed to his associations. Unfortunately we all know that Political Correctness is the current paradigm of the ages in Western/American Government and polite society in general.

A bold person stepping up to the plate to ask the tough questions about Obama would be condemned as the
falsely maligned Joe McCarthy looking for a witch hunt to victimize innocent people.

Here is another news article by a News Service outside of the MSM.
Cybercast News Service asks the questions about why Obama’s website has links to Mohammedan-American organizations promoting their events.

You might ask, “So what?”

Some of these organizations are Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS). ISNA was an
unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial which was about funding Arab-Palestinian terrorists Hamas. ICNA has promoted Islamist terrorist speakers to come to event in America and terrorist expert Steven Emerson has noted ICNA’s close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. The MAS was founded as the American branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and has tried to deceive the public with anti-terrorist rhetoric.

I know I have a lot of links to back up my assertions and you should check them out.

Can Americans seriously potentially elect Obama as President with all of these associations directly and indirectly linked to his political career? What does Obama really mean with his slogan of “Change?”


Obama Public Statements Do Not Line Up With Public Associations

I am aware that many people look upon
World Net Daily (WND) and most of its Columnists and Writers as the news version of the National Enquirer. I believe that is a bad rap. Yes there are some sensationalist articles that are unbelievable; there are also a great number of articles backed up by documentation and photographs dealing with political matters.

The thing is WND is willing and bold enough to report news that the Mainstream Media would frown upon.

Here is a case of Aaron Klein who is a frequent Reporter and Columnist for WND that has sent out an email list using WND servers about Barack Obama’s association with known anti-Semites and pro-terrorist funders for Palestinian Arab murderers.

Aaron Klein is stepping on the toes of MSM who has anointed Obama as a proud Liberal American that is a Christian.

My problem with this MSM anointing of Obama as the Liberal American Patriot is that it elevates him to a level that Conservatives fear to waste their credibility. Contradicting the new political “Messiah” might test a journalists’ credibility; however I am a blogger. I am merely speaking my mind in you agree or disagree. My credibility is not an issue. There are some astonishing tidbits of news that do not line up with Obama public denials of anti-Semitism and his public pro-Israel stand.

Here is an example of news that does not line up from an Aaron Klein article I received by an e-news list:


Obama Worked With Terrorist
Senator helped fund organization that rejects 'racist' Isreal's [sic] existence

Aaron Klein Reports from Jerusalem
2/25/2008 11:50 AM
World Net Daily

The board of a nonprofit organization on which Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a "catastrophe" and supports intense immigration reform, including providing drivers licenses and education to illegal aliens.

The co-founder of the Arab group in question, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, also has held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi is a harsh critic of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was involved in anti-Western terrorism and was labeled by the State Department as a terror group.

In 2001, the Woods Fund, a Chicago-based nonprofit that describes itself as a group helping the disadvantaged, provided a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN, for which Khalidi's wife, Mona, serves as president. The Fund provided a second grant to the AAAN for $35,000 in 2002.

Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund's website. According to tax filings, Obama received compensation of $6,000 per year for his service in 1999 and 2001. Obama served on the Wood's Fund board alongside William C. Ayers, a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971.

Ayers, who still serves on the Woods Fund board, contributed $200 to Obama's senatorial campaign fund and has served on panels with Obama at numerous public speaking engagements. Ayers admitted to involvement in the bombings of U.S. governmental buildings in the 1970s. He is a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The $40,000 grant from Obama's Woods Fund to the AAAN constituted about a fifth of the Arab group's reported grants for 2001, according to tax filings obtained by WND. The $35,000 Woods Fund grant in 2002 also constituted about one-fifth of AAAN's reported grants for that year.
The AAAN, headquartered in the heart of Chicago's Palestinian immigrant community, describes itself as working to "empower Chicago-area Arab immigrants and Arab Americans through the combined strategies of community organizing, advocacy, education and social services, leadership development, and forging productive relationships with other communities."
It reportedly has worked on projects with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, which supports open boarders and education for illegal aliens.
The AAAN in 2005 sent a letter to New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson in which it called a billboard opposing a North Carolina-New Mexico joint initiative to deny driver's licenses to illegal aliens a "bigoted attack on Arabs and Muslims."
Speakers at AAAN dinners and events routinely have taken an anti-Israel line.
The group co-sponsored a Palestinian art exhibit, titled, "The Subject of Palestine," that featured works related to what some Palestinians call the "Nakba" or "catastrophe" of Israel's founding in 1948.
According to the widely discredited Nakba narrative, Jews in 1948 forcibly expelled hundreds of thousands - some Palestinians claim over one million - Arabs from their homes and then took over the territory.

Historically, about 600,000 Arabs fled Israel after surrounding Arab countries warned they would destroy the Jewish state in 1948. Some Arabs also were driven out by Jewish forces while they were trying to push back invading Arab armies. At the same time, over 800,000 Jews were expelled or left Arab countries under threat after Israel was founded.
The theme of AAAN's Nakba art exhibit, held at DePaul University in 2005, was "the compelling and continuing tragedy of Palestinian life ... under [Israeli] occupation ... home demolition ... statelessness ... bereavement ... martyrdom, and ... the heroic struggle for life, for safety, and for freedom."
Another AAAN initiative, titled, "Al Nakba 1948 as experienced by Chicago Palestinians," seeks documents related to the "catastrophe" of Israel's founding. A post on the AAAN site asked users: "Do you have photos, letters or other memories you could share about Al-Nakba-1948?"
That posting was recently removed. The AAAN website currently states the entire site is under construction.
Pro-PLO advocate held Obama fundraiser, describes Obama as 'sympathetic'
AAAN co-founder Rashid Khalidi was reportedly a director of the official PLO press agency WAFA in Beirut from 1976 to 1982, while the PLO committed scores of anti-Western attacks and was labeled by the U.S. as a terror group. Khalidi's wife, AAAN President Mona Khalidi, was reportedly WAFA's English translator during that period.
Rashid Khalidi at times has denied working directly for the PLO but Palestinian diplomatic sources in Ramallah told WND he indeed directed WAFA. Khalidi also advised the Palestinian delegation to the Madrid Conference in 1991.
During documented speeches and public events, Khalidi has called Israel an "apartheid system in creation" and a destructive "racist" state.
He has multiple times expressed support for Palestinian terror, calling suicide bombings response to "Israeli aggression." He dedicated his 1986 book, "Under Siege," to "those who gave their lives ... in defense of the cause of Palestine and independence of Lebanon." Critics assailed the book as excusing Palestinian terrorism.
While the Woods Fund's contribution to Khalidi's AAAN might be perceived as a one-time run in with Obama, the presidential hopeful and Khalidi evidence a deeper relationship.
According to a professor at the University of Chicago who said he has known Obama for 12 years, the Democratic presidential hopeful first befriended Khalidi when the two worked together at the university. The professor spoke on condition of anonymity. Khalidi lectured at the University of Chicago until 2003 while Obama taught law there from 1993 until his election to the Senate in 2004.
Khalidi in 2000 held what was described as a successful fundraiser for Obama's failed bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, a fact not denied by Khalidi.
Speaking in a joint interview with WND and the John Batchelor Show of New York's WABC Radio and Los Angeles' KFI Radio, Khalidi was asked about his 2000 fundraiser for Obama.
"I was just doing my duties as a Chicago resident to help my local politician," Khalidi stated.
Khalidi said he supports Obama for president "because he is the only candidate who has expressed sympathy for the Palestinian cause."
Khalidi also lauded Obama for "saying he supports talks with Iran. If the U.S. can talk with the Soviet Union during the Cold War, there is no reason it can't talk with the Iranians."
Asked about Obama's role funding the AAAN, Khalidi claimed he had "never heard of the Woods Fund until it popped up on a bunch of blogs a few months ago."
He terminated the call when petitioned further about his links with Obama.
Contacted by phone, Mona Khalidi refused to answer WND's questions about the AAAN's involvement with Obama.
Obama's campaign headquarters did not reply to a list of WND questions sent by e-mail to the senator's press office.
Obama, American terrorist in same circles
Obama served on the board with Ayers, who was a Weathermen leader and has written about his involvement with the group's bombings of the New York City Police headquarters in 1970, the Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972.
"I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough," Ayers told the New York Times in an interview released on Sept. 11, 2001
"Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon," Ayers wrote in his memoirs, titled "Fugitive Days." He continued with a disclaimer that he didn't personally set the bombs, but his group set the explosives and planned the attack.
A $200 campaign contribution is listed on April 2, 2001 by the "Friends of Barack Obama" campaign fund. The two taught appeared speaking together at several public events, including a 1997 University of Chicago panel entitled, "Should a child ever be called a 'super predator?'" and another panel for the University of Illinois in April 2002, entitled, "Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?"
The charges against Ayers were dropped in 1974 because of prosecutorial misconduct, including illegal surveillance.
Ayers is married to another notorious Weathermen terrorist, Bernadine Dohrn, who has also served on panels with Obama. Dohrn was once on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List and was described by J. Edgar Hoover as the "most dangerous woman in America." Ayers and Dohrn raised the son of Weathermen terrorist Kathy Boudin, who was serving a sentence for participating in a 1981 murder and robbery that left 4 people dead.
Obama advisor wants talks with terrorists
The revelations about Obama's relationship with Khalidi follows a recent WND article quoting Israeli security officials who expressed "concern" about Robert Malley, an adviser to Obama who has advocated negotiations with Hamas and providing international assistance to the terrorist group.

Malley, a principal Obama foreign policy adviser, has penned numerous opinion articles, many of them co-written with a former adviser to the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, petitioning for dialogue with Hamas and blasting Israel for numerous policies he says harm the Palestinian cause.

Malley also previously penned a well-circulated New York Review of Books piece largely blaming Israel for the collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations at Camp David in 2000 when Arafat turned down a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and eastern sections of Jerusalem and instead returned to the Middle East to launch an intifada, or terrorist campaign, against the Jewish state.
Malley's contentions have been strongly refuted by key participants at Camp David, including President Bill Clinton, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and primary U.S. envoy to the Middle East Dennis Ross, all of whom squarely blamed Arafat's refusal to make peace for the talks' failure.

Paleocon Buckley Passed Away Today

William F. Buckley Jr. died today at the age of 82. I did not always see I to eye with Buckley since his was more of a rigid Paleocon and I leaning toward a Neocon; however it must be said he was a bastion of Conservatism in a day when it was ridiculed as followers without intellect and the true political giants were the supposed intellectual Left Wing Liberals.

Buckley did not buckle and demonstrated an intellectual wit that diminished a Lefty even if the person had key factual points to support an argument. Buckley was no moron as the Leftists of his day considered a Conservative in the 50’s and 60’s. Lefties might think twice before locking horns a truly superior political intellect with a remarkable command of the English language.

I cancelled my RSS feed of Buckley today when I read that he had left this world for the next. My RSS feed was from Yahoo and Buckley last post about a debate between Obama and Hillary had. The article was dated February 1, 2008.

I wonder if any of
Buckley’s observations will prescient of the race.

E Pluribus Unum

Maybe Harvard did not get the memo that the English translation for E Pluribus Unum is Out of the Many, One. The implication of America’s National Motto that diverse cultures come to America to be ONE people.

That would include Mohammedans.

Moral Relativity in America

Here is an example of Leftist Judges establishing Secular Humanism as a religion in America. A father in Massachusetts in 2005 was upset that the Public School sent home reading material for his son promoting the acceptance of homosexual behavior.

The Father file a civil suit against the Public school which was dismissed in Federal Court and in the Appellate Court ruled that teaching homosexuality did not violate parental rights. Now the Father is taking his cause to the Supreme Court.

Another family became upset with a Public School in 2006 because it sent home reading material for their second grader about two homosexual Kings that were lovers. This
family joined the Father of the five year old in the Law Suit which is on its way to the Supreme Court.

On paper this Law Suit is about Parental Rights VS what the Government can instruct children in Public School.

The reality is different. It is about establishing the value and moral system of Secular Humanism in America. That makes a system that calls itself “secular” a religious system.

Leftists have interpreted the First Amendment’s intent of NOT establishing a State religion as Separation of Church and State. The phrase “Separation of Church and State” is found no where within the United States Constitution in the original document or the first 10 Amendments that has come to be known as the Bill of Rights.

Leftist Courts have used the illusion of Separation of Church and State to slowly erode Christianity from any connection in government on the local, State and Federal level. These Leftist Christophobes have changed Community Nativity Scenes that have been found on public grounds because it violates the Separation of Church and State myth. Leftist Courts have begun telling the Government to remove references to Judeo/Christianity from public buildings because it violates the Leftist interpretation of the First Amendment. The primary public property removals usually relate to the Ten Commandments or Crosses at Public Memorials. These representations of Christianity are symbols of values and morality; thus Leftist Courts are refuting Christian values and Christian morality in the name of the delusion of the Separation of Church and State.

Secular Humanism has emerged as a religion that places faith in the objective evidence of human discovery (facts derived by the validation of Science). Secular Humanism glorifies humanity as self-existent rather than created by God. In other words values and morals are relative to what feels good for humanity in the sense realm. Thus what is normal like a male and female is the foundation to producing progeny. The progeny learning their roles in life from the examples set by male and female parents.

Since it feels good to a group of humanity to have same gender sex, Secular Humanist morals and values would dictate that children acquired (obviously not produced from the same gender) can learn what is normal from same sex cohabitation.

Secular Humanism, values and morality are measured on a sliding scale rather than a paradigm that fixes normality, values and morals.

Faith in Secular Humanism has probably led to the greatest degeneration of Western Society. Violence, promiscuity (homosexuals and heterosexuals), community trust, the disintegration of the cohesion of the family which leads to mutual disrespect between human individuals and on and on.

In essence
Secular Humanism is a religion.

First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The Judicial Branch of Government has basically ESTABLISHED Secular Humanism as the Religion of the Land. The Judicial Branch’s extra-Constitutional legislation has overstepped it’s purpose. The Congress is the Legislative Branch which exists to create law and the parameters of a fiscal budget within the confines of the Constitution. The Presidential Administration is the Executive Branch which exists to manage the Government and enforce the Laws enacted by the Legislative Branch. The Judicial Branch exists to adjudicate civil and government law. The Judicial Branch interprets law and provides clarity to gray areas of law.

Legislation is not the Judicial Branch’s jurisdiction; yet that is exactly what Leftists in the Judiciary have done by ESTABLISHING Secular Humanism as the religion of the Land. Thus forcing the traditional religion of the Land too often being in contradiction of the unconstitutional Established State religion of Secular Humanism.

Does America Really Want a Dem in the White House?

A lot of people think the Democratic Party is on the fast track to winning the White House in 2008. Of the many people, the prediction is Barack Hussein Obama will be that Democrat.

With that in mind, the primary theme of Obama is the word “change.” The only defining allusion to the word “change” at this moment is something different from the status quo of Washington politics. Anyone with any sense is aware that a fringe Leftist like Obama is not going to change the status quo of politics in Washington. He will be just as polarizing receiving enmity from the Right as GW received enmity from the Left.

The first item of “change” will be for a Democratic Party President to bring the troops home from Iraq preventing victory which is now just a hands grasp away and probably throwing the oil rich Iraq into a chaos with an Iranian predator next door.

Thus leaving Iraq would probably lead numerable bad things, of which the Saudis and Europe will clamor for the return of the American military to clean up.

A chaotic Iraq will lead to an invasion from the north from Turkey to make sure oil endowed Kurds do not form an independent nation. A chaotic Iraq will lead to a civil war between Sunnis and Shias that has nearly been solved by the current Troop Surge. Then Iran will make its play to either create a Shia Islamist Iraq or simply annex the Shia dominated part of Iraq next door to Iran.

The in between time of the Democrats removing troops from Iraq and an impending chaos in Iraq, an international proclamation that transnational terrorism (of which al Qaeda appears to be the most notorious to Americans) has defeated the most powerful nation in the world – the United States of America – will be shouted from the Islamist roof tops.

This will place some swagger on some goals of transnational Islamist terrorism to spread Islam by further terrorism and embolden Western Islamists to require more concessions in the rule of law to practice Sharia Law as opposed to the Rights and Liberty oriented values of Western Culture.

Since Europeans tend to be appeasement minded lefties supporting many of the issues of why Islamism exists, the rule of law debate between Islam and Western values is already an issue.

In America where Islamist dominated organizations in private yet publicly deluding the American public and Left that they are of a moderate nature, will begin to emulate their Islamist brothers in Europe. The demand for Sharia exclusivity apart from Constitutional Law will begin. This kind of demand will undermine the current Leftist stand on Separation of Church and State as the Islamic religion is given government privileges and perks to practice Islam under government protection and involvement all in the name of the delusion of multiculturalism.

Thus all those years of work by the Left to rid the local, State and Federal government of Christian heritage will become a hypocrisy as Islam is protected by the Government. For example it will be a hate crime for Christians to condemn Islam according to Biblical Scriptures but it will be Freedom of Speech for Islam to proclaim its superiority over all other religions and those religions that criticize Islamic superiority will be a hate crime. Can anyone say self-imposed dhimmitude?

Islamist deception is already spreading in America’s public domain via the so-called moderate non-profit Islamic organizations and non-profit Islamic civil rights organizations. Islamists are highly involved in American Mosques and American Public and Private Schools.

Steven Emerson recently has wrote a blog post which I found at Political Mavens criticizing the Mainstream Media (specifically the New York Times in this instance) for proclaiming moderate bona fides to obvious Islamists who wish to bring down the American way of life by hook or by crook.

In this case the Islamists are members and speakers the Muslim Students’ Association (MSA), which was directly founded by the Muslim Brotherhood out of Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood’s roots reach all the way back to the cooperation of
Hassan al Banna and Amin el-Husseini that supported and received support from Adolf Hitler due to a mutual hatred of Jews.

Steven Emerson demonstrates there is ABSOLUTELY nothing moderate about the MSA which is highly involved on American University campuses nationally.

Is this the scenario you as an American wish to get rolling by supporting the Democratic Party? God Almighty I pray not! Vote Republican!

Soft Pedaling Radical Islam: The New York Times Discovers the MSA

Steven Emerson
February 21st, 2008
Political Mavens

Neil MacFarquhar’s latest paean to radical Islam appeared in Thursday’s New York Times, “
For Muslim Students, a Debate on Inclusion,” in which he praises a known radical leader of the Muslim Students’ Association as some kind of moderate. MacFarquhar begins the story with a sweet vignette about Mertaban’s alleged moderate bona fides:

Amir Mertaban vividly recalls sitting at his university’s recruitment table for the Muslim Students Association a few years ago when an attractive undergraduate flounced up in a decidedly un-Islamic miniskirt, saying “Salamu aleykum,” or “Peace be upon you,” a standard Arabic greeting, and asked to sign up.

Mr. Mertaban also recalls that his fellow recruiter surveyed the young woman with disdain, arguing later that she should not be admitted because her skirt clearly signaled that she would corrupt the Islamic values of the other members.

“I knew that brother, I knew him very well; he used to smoke weed on a regular basis,” said Mr. Mertaban, now 25, who was president of the Muslim student group at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, from 2003 to 2005.

Pointing out the hypocrisy, Mr. Mertaban won the argument that the group could no longer reject potential members based on rigid standards of Islamic practice.

Mertaban the non-hypocritical “moderate,” as MacFarquhar would have you believe. Mertaban apparently likes girls in miniskirts – at least enough to not refuse them admission to the MSA.

But what does Mertaban have in store for this flouncing, attractive, be-miniskirted undergrad? Here’s
what he told an MSA audience at U.C. Berkeley in April 2007:

So you never compromise on your faith. You be confident in every aspect of life. In every aspect of Islam you are confident. Four wives? Yes men are allowed to have four wives within this context.

Of course, polygamy is illegal in the United States. And Mertaban’s speech that day was not limited to Islamic marital relations. He continued:

Jihad? Yes Jihad! Jihad is the tightest thing in Islam. Don’t compromise on these little things. Be proud of it. Why? Because Islam is a perfect religion. If you sit here and you start saying, ‘Jihad is only an internal this and that,’ you are compromising on your faith.

That’s very moderate, indeed. Of course, you won’t read this in the New York Times, but Mertaban began his speech that day with a stirring defense of none other than Osama Bin Laden, imploring his audience that, no matter what Bin Laden may – or may not – have done, Muslims are obliged to defend him “to the end.” Here’s what he said:

War in Iraq or Afghanistan or Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein. Don’t ever compromise on Islam! And don’t ever compromise on your Muslim brothers and sisters in which you have no evidence. Osama bin Laden- I don’t know this guy. I don’t know what he did. I don’t know what he said. I don’t know what happened. But we defend Muslim brothers and we defend our Muslim sisters to the end. Is that clear?

At the same conference, Mertaban defended radical Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr on the same grounds:

Time magazine had this one article on Muqtada al-Sadr. Who knows who Muqtada al-Sadr is? He is one of the individuals in Iraq who is one of the leaders of the Shi’a resistance movement against U.S. troops. Anyways, Time magazine dramatizes everything. So here is Muqtada al-Sadr, ok? And I want you to look at my facial expression, because this is very powerful how they used him … They’re attacking Muslims not based on you and how you look and how you look - based on how he looks.

I don’t even know the guy. The guy is probably a tight Muslim. I don’t even know him. I don’t really care too much about him to tell you the truth. But the idea is how they use individuals like that to portray Muslims.

So, according to Mertaban, not only is Muqtada al-Sadr a “tight Muslim,” but Time Magazine should not show images nor report on an influential radical Islamic leader having a major impact in the Iraq war because of how he looks. But again, you won’t read about this speech in the Times, just about how “inclusive” Mertaban is.

Not content to simply downplay one of the MSA’s most radical leaders, MacFarquhar goes on to sanitize the founding of the entire organization. In describing the MSA’s origins, he writes, “Organized in the 1960s by foreign students who wanted collective prayers where there were no mosques, the associations were basically little slices of Saudi Arabia.”

That is a complete whitewash. It is well known that the MSA was not merely founded by “foreign students.” It has been reported in multiple sources that the MSA was formed by members of the Ikhwan, or Muslim Brotherhood. The Chicago Tribune
reported just that nearly four years ago:

“While the U.S. Brotherhood was influential from its beginning–in 1963 it helped establish the Muslim Students Association, one of the first national Islamic groups in the U.S.—(American-based Ikhwan leader Ahmed) Elkadi thought the group could expand its reach.”

More conclusive information linking the MSA to the Muslim Brotherhood came out during last year’s Hamas-fundraising trial in Dallas against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). A 1991 document entered into evidence titled “Shura Council Report on the future of the Group: Work paper #1,” (”Group” is the code name for the Ikhwan) stated:

In 1962, the Muslim Students Union was founded by a group of the first Ikhwans in North America and Meetings of the Ikhwan became conferences and Students Union Camps.

That history matters. The Muslim Brotherhood, an 80-year-old social and religious order established in Egypt, seeks a global Islamic state governed by Shariah law as its ultimate objective. Its guiding ideologues have served as the inspiration for virtually all Sunni terrorist organizations from Hamas and Islamic Jihad to Al Qaeda.

Other exhibits from the HLF trial, dated in the early 1990s, show Muslim Brotherhood members in the U.S.
saw their role as a “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.”

And while MacFarquhar writes of the MSA, “That past has given the associations a reputation in some official quarters as a possible font of extremism,” he immediately undercuts that by adding, “but experts in American Islam believe college campuses have become too diverse and are under too much scrutiny for the groups to foster radicals.”

And yet he makes no attempt to cover the fact that MSA’s routinely invite radical Islamic speakers who justify suicide bombing and make virulent anti-Semitic and anti-American statements. We are just simply to believe there is some kind of “debate” going on concerning “inclusion.”

Well, let’s talk about inclusion. Here’s radical Imam Abdul Malik Ali speaking at an
MSA event at San Francisco State University in April 2002:

Brothers and sisters. Stop calling them suicide bombers!

When a person commits suicide, they are depressed! When a person commits suicide, they are without hope! When a person commits suicide they are losing their patience. They are in a state of despair! These brothers–and sisters– before they go out on their martyr missions, are doing videotapes, and they are saying “Yeeeuuhh! I’m doing this! I’m doing this!” And their mothers are right next to them saying, “Go ahead and go!”

I wonder which side of the “inclusiveness” debate Mr. MacFarquhar thinks suicide bombers belong to. Or what MacFarquhar would write about this, as Malik Ali continued:

You cannot win against a people like this! Because you have Israelis whose ideology is so bankrupt–You never hear an Israeli talkin’ about “I hope I’m going to die.” They want to live, they want to live. And once you go up against a people who love death, more than you love life, you in trouble man! You in serious trouble!

Very inclusive, indeed. Another MSA favorite speaker is Mohammed al-Asi. At a 2002 MSA event at the University of California, Irvine, al-Asi had posed his own unique contribution to the inclusiveness debate, telling the crowd:

If the only thing the Israelis and their mentors, and their sponsors and their superiors in Washington DC are going to understand is the use of force, than that’s the language we’re going to communicate with, we’re going to use force. And whatever was taken by force can only be retrieved by force.

Not every story is going to be an investigation. But every story, even soft features with appealing anecdotal leads, require some real reporting and a challenge to the assumptions and conclusions a reporter reaches. As we have pointed - out - repeatedly, there is no evidence of this in MacFarquhar’s reporting.

You can look it up.

Here is a “WAKE-UP AMERICA MOMENT” that I have been harping on for quite some time. Saudi Wahhabi Sunni Islamism dominates the Mosques and Mohammedan schools in America. They are brain washing American-Muslim youth with Jihad literature and preaching to American-Muslim adults via the Mosque with Jihad literature.

Which nation is responsible for teaching a culture of intolerant hate and Mohammedan Supremacism? That would be Saudi Arabia, the nation that the
State Department is wooing and acquiescing everything toward because of the immediate threat of Islamist Shia Iran in the Middle East.

It is like the American pro-Arab functionaries in whatever bureaucratic stratosphere of American who chosen the perceived lesser of two evils believing radical Islamist Shi’itism is the greater of the two evils.

This choice affects two extremely important issues: one at home and the other globally. The first is the allowing
Wahhabi Islamism to be an influence in America as it is in Britain and Europe in which critics are calling that continent Eurarabia. The problems affecting Free Speech and the Western rule of law in Europe will become the problems of the United States of America. The second issue is promoting and arming Sunni nations in the Middle East (incredibly even Palestinian terrorists) to the weakening and potential destruction of Israel. Israel is a nation and land created in the 20th century as a result of long time Western Jewish prejudice that reached its height with Hitler’s Holocaust. Western guilt in 1945 momentarily reached out in sympathy to Jews promoting a land where Jews could live without a government persecuting them for their religion or heritage.

I say “momentarily” because yet again Europeans are slipping back into the habit of anti-Semitism under the Leftist romance of a delusion of sympathy for Arab culture and Islamist propaganda matriculated from Wahhabi Saudi Arabia (hence the term “Eurarabia”)

I can understand the realism of pitting Saudi Arabian influence against Iranian influence; however not to the detriment of our own American Culture, National Interests and National Security.

Dear God in Heaven work out a balance! I am aware that Saudi Arabia
could posture negative threats to America as it has done in Britain; however it is also true the Saudi Royals fear a radical Islamist revolution that could sweep the Saudi Royals from power if Iran becomes the Middle Eastern military hegemon. A smart course would be to meet extortion with extortion based on the Saudi fears and boot Wahhabi Islamism from the American soil. After all it was the Wahhabi influenced al Qaeda terrorist organization that pulled a Pearl Harbor on American soil on September 11, 2001 transforming freedom of movement in America by forcing intrusive observations on Commercial flight travelling. That diminished Liberty in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave is a direct result of Sunni Wahhabi ideology that spouts from Saudi Arabia and its cousin the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Both of these nations are allegedly American allies and are the recipients of huge American military technology and Arms.



Support MAF to EXPOSE Leftist Un-American Ploys

Move America Forward (MAF) is continuing to make an issue of the Berkeley City Council’s unpatriotic stance toward the United States Marine Corps (USMC). You should be aware that MAF was the principle proponent in exposing Berkeley’s City Council attempt to remove a Marine recruiting office from Berkeley.

Also MAF was the principle pro-American/pro-Troop organization that exposed the treasonous actions of Code Pink Stink in literally chaining themselves in front of the Marine recruiting office to illegally prohibit people to enter. Code Pink Stink would call that a protest however when such actions are taken to that extent it reaches beyond free speech to the intrusion of operations of federal government operations.

City Council actually gave Code Pink Stink a permit to protest intrude the Marine recruiting office directly on the parking area in front of the door.

publicity humiliated the City Council to rescind an official letter to the Marines telling them to get out of town.

Thank God MAF is placing advertising of the Berkeley City Council treachery on spots in local television and Cable TV outlets on national television.

To see an example of the first ad watch

MAF needs the financial support of American Patriots to place this ad and similar future ads on television. Berkeley is not the only bastion Left Wing defeatism in America, there are other cities. MAF can make voters aware of the nature of the Leftist delusions being spread across America.

You can donate to MAF at this link: or at this link:

Cat Moy the Executive Director of MAF has this message for Patriots: “We will not give up this fight - but if we are to win it, we'll need some ammo, and that means money to get our message heard.”

Huckabee: A Deadlocked Convention is My Goal

Huckabee still has a strategy to win the Republican nomination. Huckabee’s strategy is to pick up enough delegates to keep McCain from the magic number of a first ballot nomination – 1,191.

Even if McCain leads in the delegate count, if it is less than 1,191 then the Republican Convention goes into extra ballots.

Huckabee’s new strategy is totally contingent on being successful in Texas and Ohio.

Democrats Dug In For Retreat

Charles Krauthammer writes on the emerging victory occurring in Iraq and the Democratic Party leadership and Presidential candidates on continuing to insist that Iraq is a lost war.

this is an excellent article!

JRH 2/22/08 (Hat tip to

Democrats Dug In For Retreat

By Charles Krauthammer
Friday, February 22, 2008; A23
Washington Post

    "No one can spend some 10 days visiting the battlefields in Iraq without seeing major progress in every area. . . . If the U.S. provides sustained support to the Iraqi government -- in security, governance, and development -- there is now a very real chance that Iraq will emerge as a secure and stable state."

    -- Anthony Cordesman

    "The Situation in Iraq: A Briefing From the Battlefield," Feb. 13, 2008

This from a man who was a severe critic of the postwar occupation of Iraq and who, as author Peter Wehner points out, is no wide-eyed optimist. In fact, in May 2006 Cordesman had written that "no one can argue that the prospects for stability in Iraq are good." Now, however, there is simply no denying the remarkable improvements in Iraq since the surge began a year ago.

Unless you're a Democrat. As Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) put it, "Democrats have remained emotionally invested in a narrative of defeat and retreat in Iraq." Their Senate leader, Harry Reid, declares the war already lost. Their presidential candidates (eight of them at the time) unanimously oppose the surge. Then the evidence begins trickling in.

We get news of the Anbar Awakening, which has now spread to other Sunni areas and Baghdad. The sectarian civil strife that the Democrats insisted was the reason for us to leave dwindles to the point of near disappearance. Much of Baghdad is returning to normal. There are 90,000 neighborhood volunteers -- ordinary citizens who act as auxiliary police and vital informants on terrorist activity -- starkly symbolizing the insurgency's loss of popular support. Captured letters of al-Qaeda leaders reveal despair as they are driven -- mostly by Iraqi Sunnis, their own Arab co-religionists -- to flight and into hiding.

After agonizing years of searching for the right strategy and the right general, we are winning. How do Democrats react? From Nancy Pelosi to Barack Obama, the talking point is the same: Sure, there is military progress. We could have predicted that. (They in fact had predicted the opposite, but no matter.) But it's all pointless unless you get national reconciliation.

"National" is a way to ignore what is taking place at the local and provincial level, such as Shiite cleric Ammar al-Hakim, scion of the family that dominates the largest Shiite party in Iraq, traveling last October to Anbar in an unprecedented gesture of reconciliation with the Sunni sheiks.

Doesn't count, you see. Democrats demand nothing less than federal-level reconciliation, and it has to be expressed in actual legislation.

The objection was not only highly legalistic but also politically convenient: Very few (including me) thought this would be possible under the Maliki government. Then last week, indeed on the day Cordesman published his report, it happened. Mirabile dictu, the Iraqi parliament approved three very significant pieces of legislation.

First, a provincial powers law that turns Iraq into arguably the most federal state in the entire Arab world. The provinces get not only power but also elections by Oct. 1. U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker has long been calling this the most crucial step to political stability. It will allow, for example, the pro-American Anbar sheiks to become the legitimate rulers of their province, exercise regional autonomy and forge official relations with the Shiite-dominated central government.

Second, parliament passed a partial amnesty for prisoners, 80 percent of whom are Sunni. Finally, it approved a $48 billion national budget that allocates government revenue -- about 85 percent of which is from oil -- to the provinces. Kurdistan, for example, gets one-sixth.

What will the Democrats say now? They will complain that there is still no oil distribution law. True. But oil revenue is being distributed to the provinces in the national budget. The fact that parliament could not agree on a permanent formula for the future simply means that it will be allocating oil revenue year by year as part of the budget process. Is that a reason to abandon Iraq to al-Qaeda and Iran?

Despite all the progress, military and political, the Democrats remain unwavering in their commitment to withdrawal on an artificial timetable that inherently jeopardizes our "very real chance that Iraq will emerge as a secure and stable state."

Why? Imagine the transformative effects in the region, and indeed in the entire Muslim world, of achieving a secure and stable Iraq, friendly to the United States and victorious over al-Qaeda. Are the Democrats so intent on denying George Bush retroactive vindication for a war they insist is his that they would deny their own country a now-achievable victory?

PKK: Kurdish Communist Terrorism

Have you heard of the PKK? My guess most of my readers have not.

The PKK is a Kurdish version of a Stalinist like Communism whose purpose is to create a sovereign homeland for Kurds under the Stalinist Prototype State. PKK is a Kurdish acronym for the English translation Kurdistan’s Workers Party.

There is particular acrimony between the PKK and Turkey. This is a reason you might stumble on the interior of your newspaper (say like page 20 something) a story about Turkey taking military action inside the borders of Iraq in the Kurdistan area.

The fact is the PKK is a Communist terrorist organization that has committed atrocities in Turkey. That makes the PKK same as any other transnational Islamist terrorist group that uses terror to justify an end.

The PKK is not really popular among Kurdish groups in Iraq because of the terrorism, which occasionally is perpetrated on fellow Kurds that disagree with PKK plan to create a Communist Kurdistan State. And yet Kurds are not quick to turn on the PKK either.

The reason is Kurdish dislike for the Communist PKK is
outweighed by Kurdish hatred of Turkey who done their own fair share horrible atrocities upon Kurdish people over the years stretching back to Ottoman Turkey days.

Michael Rubin provides a book review of two books about the PKK: Blood and Belief: The PKK and the Kurding Fight for Independence, by Aliza Marcus and Kurdish Identity: Human Rights and Political Status, edited by Charles G. MacDonald and Carole A. O'Leary.

The review may provide insight as to why Turkey has a stake in the politics of Iraq.

Homeland Security Warns: Pregnant Appearing Terrorists are Coming

The Department of Homeland Security is warning to be on the look out for homicidal suicide chicks using prosthetics to appear pregnant. A suicide bomber in America near you might be on the way.

Abbas Aide: We Are Better than Kosovo

Yasser Abed Rabbo is a top aide of Palestine Authority terrorist President Mahmoud Abbas. He has recently quipped that Palestinians are better than the Muslims of Kosovo which just became a recognized sovereign nation in the Balkans area of Europe. Rabbo is reported as saying the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians should unilaterally declare their independence as well.

BBC News story I read this at made sure to use all the pro-Arab/Palestine words such as “occupied.” The story is also slanted to promote sympathy for the cough victimized Arabs that call themselves Palestinians.

In case anyone was wondering there was no such thing as a land called Palestine after 1948. That year Israel declared independence and various Arab nations (notably Egypt, Syria and (then) Transjordan (now) Jordan) invaded the new independent nation of Israel. The land that was supposed to be a Palestinian State for Arabs became a part of the sovereign Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

In 1967
Jordan was part of a greater Arab plan preparing to invade and dismantle Israel. The obvious troop movements indicated the imminent invasion was on the way. Israel chose not to be a victim and simply preemptively attacked Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Jordan. What became known as the Six Day War became a complete victory for Israel occupying the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the Golan Heights from Syria and most importantly the uniting of a divided Jerusalem and what the West calls the West Bank and Israel calls Judea and Samaria.

The land won from aggressor Jordan has been considered part of traditional Jewish land from their historical perspective. It was land acquired by right of victory of Jordan. The land was not taken from Palestinians, it was taken from Jordan. The holy city Jerusalem was finally united under Jewish sovereignty.

Now here is the thing: Rabbo says the Palestine Authority should unilaterally declare a sovereign nation and call it Palestine
just as Kosovo did. Kosovo was a province of Serbia of which 90% of the primary ethnic group is Albanians and over 70% of the Kosovo population is Muslim. Serbia did not want to allow Kosovo independence; however American support became the leading factor toward Kosovo independence.

Rabbo has the view if Muslim Kosovo gained sovereign independence from a nation which did not wish to allow it to happen, then the global powers of America and the EU should guarantee a similar sovereignty to a Palestine State.

You know what? I don’t think that is such a bad idea. Probably not in the same way as the PA/PLO leadership views it; however I think Palestine declaring itself a nation unilaterally with the land the currently possess is not a bad idea.

Here is my scenario. Israel has all of Jerusalem. A unilateral declaration of independence will not change that. Unless Israel and Palestine work out an economic and resource package, Palestine would be on their own to figure that out. Their Arab neighbors should step up to the plate for that anyway.

Here is my thinking of a probable outcome of Palestinian independence. The Palestinians would acquire weapons from Russia or China or worse – from North Korea. The thugs that are leaders in Palestine will inspire their constituency to have animosity toward Israel. I suspect a combined Palestine, Syria and Hezbollah (nation within a nation) will do something foolish because of the results of the last Israel VS Hezbollah war in Lebanon. Then Israel dismantles the new Palestinian State, maybe even chasing the ding dongs that supported the thug Palestinian government into Jordan or Syria.

Time will tell.

Sharon Stone Makes Pro-Arab Statement While Touring the Middle East

I received this email from writer Aaron Klein who writes for World Net Daily, Ynet News (Israel) and is the author of the book Schmoozing with Terrorists:

Terrorists Go Ga Ga Over Sharon Stone, Says Mideast Correspondent
Aaron Klein
2/20/2008 5:47 PM

Mideast terrorist leaders recently thanked actress
Sharon Stone for claiming to the pan-Arab media the U.S. used the Sept. 11 attacks as "pretext" for launching wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

In her interview with Al Hayat, Stone also lamented what she called Americans' decision to ignore the deaths of so many Iraqis.

"I feel at great pain when the spotlight is on the death of 4,000 American soldiers, while 600,000 Iraqi deaths are ignored," Stone told Al Hayat.

In interviews with Mideast reporter Aaron Klein, the terrorists stated Stone's remarks, published this week in Arabic, reinforce their views that current U.S. foreign policy is leading America toward destruction.

"What Stone said strengthens what we have been saying all along - that the Bush administration and the American evangelical Christians who control U.S. policy are leading America to defeat," said Muhammad Abel-Al, spokesman and senior leader of the Popular Resistance Committees terrorist organization.

Click here to see what other terror leaders have to say about Stone's comments.

The “Click here” link is a WND story by Aaron Klein that elaborates on Sharon Stone’s sympathies for Arab terrorists while denigrating the U.S. presence she says 600,000 Iraqis died.

Actress Stone says the homicidal suicide attacks by Muslim terrorists on 9/11 was used as a “pretext” to launch wars against “Afghanistan and Iraq.”

Well duh! After
over a quarter century of transnational terrorist attacks on Americans and American assets abroad, an attack on American soil will lead to war.

What is it that World War II hero Patton said about going home from war?

Sure, we want to go home. We want this war over with. The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the b_stards who started it. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we can go home. The shortest way home is through Berlin and Tokyo. And when we get to Berlin, I am personally going to shoot that paper hanging son-of-a-b_tch Hitler. Just like I'd shoot a snake!

When a man is lying in a shell hole, if he just stays there all day, a German will get to him eventually. The hell with that idea. The hell with taking it. My men don't dig foxholes. I don't want them to. Foxholes only slow up an offensive. Keep moving. And don't give the enemy time to dig one either. We'll win this war, but we'll win it only by fighting and by showing the Germans that we've got more guts than they have; or ever will have. We're not going to just shoot the sons-of-b_tches, we're going to rip out their living G_ddamned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy Hun cock suckers by the bushel-f_cking-basket.

War is a bloody, killing business. You've got to spill their blood, or they will spill yours. Rip them up the belly. Shoot them in the guts. When shells are hitting all around you and you wipe the dirt off your face and realize that instead of dirt it's the blood and guts of what once was your best friend beside you, you'll know what to do
! (Excerpt of
Patton's Speech to the Troops in England May 31, 1944)

Ms Stone war is not a game. When the enemy attacks you and kills your people, you either surrender or fight to win. If you fight to win, you want to kill more of the enemy than the enemy kills of you. War is not a Hollywood party getting juiced on alcohol or whatever illegal narcotic. The cliché comes to mind: War is hell.

Of course the other alternative is available – surrender.
Look at what happens in the Middle East in Mohammedan society. It is particularly not a pleasant place to live if you are not a Mohammedan. The promiscuity and debauchery that Hollywood is noted for practicing would be a death sentence in that society. Ms Stone you are concerned about 600,000 Iraqi casualties of war. You should be concerned of global Jihad in which if Islam controlled your society, you would have your head lopped off.

About Patton’s excerpt: The profanity General Patton used in the normal course of interaction with his troops is offensive; nonetheless he backed it up by being one of the winningest field Generals of World War II. He was such a winner that politicians had to slow him down out of fear his exuberance would offend our then Soviet allies and start a new war.
