I sign a lot of petitions pertaining to Conservative issues (usually meaning anti-Leftist) and Counterjihad issues. Sometimes I get a response form my Congressman and one or both of my Senators. Typically the response runs something like, “Thanks for your concern, if you are ever in Washington DC don’t hesitate to contact my office.” I live in Oklahoma. I won’t being showing up anytime soon in our nation’s capital.

 

I actually received a response that was a bit more detailed from my Congressman Rep. Jim Bridenstine and one of my Senators in Jim Inhofe. Now I’d like to think these two Republican gentlemen actually took the time to compose the email with their own hand on their keyboard. That is probably wishful thinking, but I’ll pretend anyway. It was probably one of their staff that drew the short straw to answer email one day.

 

The Bridenstine email came yesterday and the Inhofe email came today. Both emails were canned enough that I can’t be exactly sure to which canned petition-email I signed. By the tone of Bridenstine’s email his was probably a response to an ‘Impeach Obama’ petition. And Senator Inhofe’s email was probably a response to either a Benghazigate petition or a ‘ban the Quran’ canned petition. In the case of Senator Inhofe I am thinking it was probably the ‘ban the Quran’ petition for I believe that was the latest petition I electronically signed.

 

I got to tell ya, if Senator Inhofe or a staff member responded to ‘ban the Quran’ I am a bit surprised.  That is a bit of a radical petition in this day of political correctness. So if it was Inhofe then kudos to him. If it was an Inhofe staff member then kudos to him as well and I am praying that staffer doesn’t get reprimanded for addressing ‘ban the Quran’.

 

At any rate I am going to post both the Bridenstine and Inhofe responses. It was smart politics on their part because at the very least there is the impression of listening to their constituents back home in Oklahoma.

Dear Mr. Houk,

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding President Obama and the many recent government scandals casting serious doubt on the administration’s integrity.  I appreciate your opinion and value your input on these important issues.

I understand your frustrations with President Obama. As you may know, I recently gave a one-minute speech on the floor of the House of Representatives challenging his leadership.  I encourage you to view it by clicking on this link:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86UL9ekiXDk.


On March 12, 2014, the House passed, with my support, H.R. 4138, the Executive Needs to Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments of the Law (ENFORCE) Act
[Blog Editor: Text to H.R. 4138].  If enacted, H.R. 4138 will authorize either chamber of Congress, upon adoption of a resolution, to bring civil action, when the President or any other federal officer has established or implemented a policy in violation of the constitutional requirement that the President faithfully execute the law.

I am also a cosponsor of H. Res. 442, the Stop This Overreaching Presidency Act [Blog Editor: Message from original sponsor Rep. Tom Rice and text].  This legislation directs the House of Representatives to bring civil action to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the Executive Branch in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.  It was subsequently referred to both the House Committee on Rules and the House Committee on Administration, where it currently awaits consideration. 

With regards to impeachment, at this time I believe there are more constructive and effective means to challenge the President’s conduct and hold him accountable. Given the present composition of the Senate, impeachment would likely be an exercise in futility; at worst, it could allow the President and his supporters in Congress to distract the public from the very real and serious scandals the administration is facing. However, please know that I will continue to hold President Obama and his administration accountable and promise to keep your thoughts on this matter in mind at all times.

 

Thank you again for writing and expressing your thoughts on this important issue.  Please visit my website at http://bridenstine.house.gov to send me another message with your thoughts and opinions, read my positions on major issues, or sign up for my E-Newsletter. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links below. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jim Bridenstine

Dear Mr. Houk:

 

Thank you for your correspondence regarding Islamic extremism in the United States.  This is a critical issue, and as your voice in Washington, D.C., I appreciate being made aware of your concerns. 

 

Our ongoing war on terrorism is being fought both at home and abroad.  It is complex and interwoven as there are many different individuals and organizations who make it difficult to differentiate the extremists from the law abiding citizens.  However, we must be diligent to assess the true internal and external threats of any extremists, whatever their ideology may be.  Extremists have made it clear that they do not respect individual life, and we must remain committed to fight this battle against radical ideology. 

 

On the homeland security front, the United States has focused on law enforcement, prosecution, and improving the training and preparedness of first responders.  The Department of Homeland Security, established in November 2002, focuses on guarding our border and infrastructure, analyzing terror threats, and coordinating our nation’s response to future emergencies.  An important policy initiative was the enactment of the USA Patriot Act in 2001.  This law bolsters the government’s abilities to investigate, to bar and expel foreign terrorists from the United States, and to punish acts of terrorism. 

 

In response to the increased focus on homeland security, there have also been efforts to involve the Department of Defense (DOD) more closely with federal, state and local agencies in their homeland security activities.  On October 1, 2002, DOD activated a new combatant command, Northern Command (NORTHCOM), to combat terrorism abroad and to protect American citizens at home.  Since the September 11, 2001 attacks, these efforts have made it more difficult for terrorists to operate and to succeed in their attacks.  

 

In combating extremists abroad, the post-September 11 battle against Al Qaeda is worldwide and multifaceted, involving diplomatic and financial, as well as military actions.  On the law enforcement and intelligence front, the United States is working closely with its counterparts around the world to share information and arrest Al Qaeda operatives worldwide, with some successes. 

 

The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood is also of great concern to me. Unfortunately, as you may know, on June 24, 2012 the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Mohamed Morsi, won Egypt’s first democratic presidential election. Morsi had been the previous leader of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), and a member of parliament.  Although the election seemed to be free and fair, Morsi’s election is further evidence to me that Egypt will face further destabilizing times in the months and potentially years ahead.  Please be assured that I consider any threat by the Muslim Brotherhood internationally or here domestically as a supremely serious threat to our national security, and will investigate any allegations of their involvement in terrorist activities thoroughly. 

 

We are facing an enemy that has the weapons, skills, and mentality to strike at innocent civilians within our own borders.  I believe it is vital that we decisively end the chronic under-funding of our defense needs.  We also need to continue to invest in enhancing our intelligence capabilities, particularly in the area of human intelligence.  Moreover, we must push ahead with the development and deployment of a missile defense system.  The ultimate terror weapon would be a ballistic missile armed with a chemical, biological or a nuclear warhead.  The greatest trust placed upon Congress by the American people is to provide for their security by maintaining a strong national defense.  The U.S. must build and sustain military capabilities required to respond to possible future threats across the spectrum.

 

I will continue to do everything in my power to protect our nation and its citizens from domestic and foreign threats. We must continuously strive to protect the freedoms our servicemen and women fight for everyday. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and concerns.  Please do not hesitate to contact me again on this or any other important issue.

White House aide linked to al-Qaida Funder


Mehdi K. Alhassani - Radical Muslim BHO WH

It is surprising that a Tea Party organization has posted a Counterjihad expose. What is not surprising, is that this Tea Party organization has exposed a Radical Muslim in President Barack Hussein Obama’s White House that has links not only to Radical Islam but the Radical Islamic organizations he is linked to are supportive of Islamic terrorists such as the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda.

 

TeaParty.org utilized WND and Walid Shoebat as sources linking special assistant to the Office of the Chief of Staff of the National Security Council Mehdi K. Alhassani directly to the Muslim World League (MWL). The MWL is also linked to Hillary Clinton’s Deputy of Staff Huma Abedin.

White House aide linked to al-Qaida Funder

 

By TeaParty.org Exclusive

Recipient of Benghazi bombshell email blaming attack on Internet video

 

(Tea Party) – A troubling thread links Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff to the current special assistant to the National Security Council chief of staff of the military’s Islamic chaplain program—the Muslim World League—reported WND. The Muslim World League is a group that has been accused of financing al-Qaida and is even more radical than the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

Offshoots of the organization have been declared official terrorist organizations by both the US State Department and the United Nations. Despite all of that, Muslim World League-linked individuals have been placed in key national security positions. Furthermore, those individuals with radical ties are helping to run the military’s chaplain program.

 

Last week, the case of Mehdi K. Alhassani, special assistant to the Office of the Chief of Staff of the National Security Council, drew attention in the blogosphere world after former a PLO operative named Walid Shoebat reported on Alhassani’s ties to Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups.

 

It was in an administration email made public last week that was part of the Judicial Watch lawsuit where Alhassani’s name emerged. The email in question was sent to Alhassani and other officials from Ben Rhodes just days after the attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. Rhodes is Obama’s deputy national security adviser for strategic communication

.

In the email, Rhodes clearly spells out need to “underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”

 

It has since emerged that Alhassani was president of the Muslim Student Association at George Washington University from 2005 to 2006—a group that was openly founded by Muslim Brotherhood activists.

 

Although founded by Brotherhood activists, MSA’s roots are far more dangerous and tie into both Clinton’s deputy chief of staff and adviser, Huma Abedin, and Alhassani as well as the military’s chaplain program.

 

MSA received its start-up funding from the Muslim World League, or MWL.

 

Jihad is their way

 

Shoebat reported that Huma Abedin served on the board of the MSA at George Washington University in 1997. It so happens that the MSA’s official anthem is a restatement of the Muslim Brotherhood credo. This is what it states:

 

Allah is our objective

 

The Prophet is our leader

 

The Quran is our law

 

Jihad is our way

 

Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope

 

News media WND previously attended an MSA event and at that event speakers urged violence against the U.S.:

 

“We are not Americans,” speaker Muhammad Faheed shouted at Queensborough Community College in 2003. He continued: “We are Muslims. [The U.S.] is going to deport and attack us! It is us versus them! Truth against falsehood! The colonizers and masters against the oppressed, and we will burn down the master’s house!”

 

It was also WND that reported Abedin worked on the editorial board of her father’s Saudi-financed Islamic think tank alongside Abdullah Omar Naseef, secretary-general of the Muslim World League. Naseef’s connections to the Abedin family run deep.

 

Huma’s father, Professor Syed Abedin, founded the Institute for Minority Affairs. The Institute for Minority Affairs is a Saudi group that reportedly had the active support of Naseef. Her mother, Saleha, is the editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. The Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is the publication of Syed’s institute.

 

The Institute for Minority Affairs touts itself as being “the only scholarly institution dedicated to the systematic study of Muslim communities in non-Muslim societies around the world.”

 

Huma Abedin served on the editorial board of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs for six years, from 2002 to 2008. Shoebat previously obtained documents revealing that Naseef served on the board with Huma for at least one year—December 2002 to December 2003.

 

In an interesting turn, the sudden departure of Naseef from the board in December 2003 happens to coincide with a time that various charities that happen to be led by Naseef’s Muslim World League were declared illegal terrorism fronts worldwide. The U.S. and U.N were among those who made these declarations.

 

Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin, has been quoted as representing both the MWL and serving as a delegate for the charity in numerous press accounts.

 

Founded in Mecca in 1962, the MWL proclaims to be one of the largest Islamic non-governmental organizations. However, U.S. government documents and testimony from officials at t the charity show that the Saudi government heavily finances it.

 

The MWL and several of its offshoots, including the International Islamic Relief Organization, or IIRO, and Al Haramain, have been accused of having terrorist ties. Al Haramain was declared by the U.S. and U.N. to be a terror-financing front.

 

In a press release dated September 2004, the Treasury Department alleged direct links between Al Haramain and Osama bin Laden. The group has been banned worldwide by United Nations Security Council Committee 1267.

 

Long-held accusations have also stated that the IIRO and MWL repeatedly funded al-Qaida.

 

In fact, bin Laden reportedly told an associate that the MWL was one of his three most important charity fronts.

 

In a profile of the MWL, the Anti-Defamation League accuses the group of promulgating a “fundamentalist interpretation of Islam around the world through a large network of charities and affiliated organizations.”

 

“Its ideological backbone is based on an extremist interpretation of Islam,” the profile states, “and several of its affiliated groups and individuals have been linked to terror-related activity.”

 

U.S. News and World Report documented back in 2003, that with MWL’s donations, invariably come “a blizzard of Wahhabist literature.”

 

“Critics argue that Wahhabism’s more extreme preachings – mistrust of infidels, branding of rival sects as apostates and emphasis on violent jihad –laid the groundwork for terrorist groups around the world,” said the report.

 

In 1990 in Florida, an Egyptian-American cab driver, Ihab Mohamed Ali Nawawi, was arrested on accusations he was an al-Qaida sleeper agent and a former personal pilot to bin Laden. At the time of the accusation, he also reportedly worked at MWL in its Pakistani branch.

 

In 1988, the MWL founded the Al Haramain Islamic Foundation. The group was responsible for developing chapters in approximately 50 countries. Until it was designated as a terrorist organization they had a chapter in Oregon.

 

Evidence began to grow in the early 1990s that showed the foundation was funding Islamic militants in Somalia and Bosnia. In 1996 a CIA report detailed their Bosnian militant ties.

 

Al Haramain’s offices in Kenya and Tanzania were designated by the U.S. Treasury as sponsors of terrorism. This designation came about as a result of the group’s role in planning and funding the bombings of two American embassies in East Africa in 1998. The Comoros Islands office was also designated because it “was used as a staging area and exfiltration route for the perpetrators of the 1998 bombings.”

 

In 2003, The New York Times reported that Al Haramain had provided funds to another terrorist group—the Indonesian group Jemaah Islamiyah. Jemaah Islamiyah was responsible for the bombings in Bali in 2002 that killed 202 people. Later, the Treasury designated the Indonesia office a terrorist entity.

 

Then the following year in February 2004, the U.S. Treasury Department froze all of Al Haramain’s financial assets pending an investigation. That led the Saudi government to disband the charity, making it part of the Saudi National Commission for Relief and Charity Work Abroad.

 

Al-Haramain was designated a terrorist organization in September 2004 by the U.S.

Four years later, in June 2008, the Treasury Department applied the terrorist designation to the entire Al-Haramain organization all over the world.

 

Bin Laden’s brother-in-law linked to terrorist plots

 

The Philippine and Indonesian branch offices of the MWL-founded IIRO were also designated as terrorist entities in August 2006. According to the Treasury Department they were designated as terrorist organizations “for facilitating fundraising for al-Qaida and affiliated terrorist groups.”

 

The Treasury Department continued: “Abd Al Hamid Sulaiman Al-Mujil, a high-ranking IIRO official [executive director of its Eastern Province Branch] in Saudi Arabia, has used his position to bankroll the al-Qaida network in Southeast Asia. Al-Mujil has a long record of supporting Islamic militant groups, and he has maintained a cell of regular financial donors in the Middle East who support extremist causes.”

 

In the 1980s, Osama bin Laden’s brother-in-law Mohammed Jamal Khalifa ran the Philippines offices of the IIRO. Khalifa has been linked to plots targeting the pope and U.S. airlines.

 

In addition, the IIRO has been pointedly accused of funding Hamas, Algerian radicals, Afghanistan militant bases and the Egyptian terror group Al-Gamaa al-Islamiyya.

 

The families of the 9/11 victims filed a lawsuit against IIRO among other Muslim organizations for having “played key roles in laundering of funds to the terrorists in the 1998 African embassy bombings” as well as for having been involved in the “financing and ‘aiding and abetting’ of terrorists in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing,” reported the New York Post.

 

It’s a Saudi government front

 

In one Canadian court case, the Canadian director of both the IIRO and the MWL, Arafat El-Asahi, admitted the charities are near entities of the Saudi government.

El-Asahi said: “The Muslim World League, which is the mother of IIRO, is a fully government-funded organization. In other words, I work for the government of Saudi Arabia. I am an employee of that government.

 

“Second, the IIRO is the relief branch of that organization, which means that we are controlled in all our activities and plans by the government of Saudi Arabia. Keep that in mind, please,” said El-Asahi.

 

Even though its offshoots were implicated in terror financing, the U.S. government never designated the MWL itself as a terror-financing charity. It has been widely speculated that this is because the U.S. does not want to not embarrass the Saudi government.

 

Muslim chaplain program

 

Last week in a blog posting Shoebat stated that Alhassani attended the Islamic Center of Boston in Wayland, Massachusetts—that is the sister mosque to the Islamic Society of Boston. The Islamic Society of Boston was founded by Abdurahman Alamoudi—a convicted terrorist.

 

WND first reported on Alamoudi’s role in founding the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Council. The Council was created in 1991 and operates under the umbrella of the American Muslim Foundation.

 

The American Muslim Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Council was the official endorsing agency of the military’s Muslim chaplain program along with the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA.

 

ISNA, an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to raise money for Hamas, still happens to be the official endorsing agency for all Muslim chaplains in the U.S. military.

 

An Islamic cleric, Alamoudi served as an Islamic adviser to President Bill Clinton and it was Alamoudi who guided the establishment of the military’s Muslim chaplain program.

 

Alamoudi has been said to have handpicked the army’s first Islamic chaplain, Imam Abdul-Rasheed Muhammad. Muhammad is still serving in that Islamic chaplain position. It also happens to be Muhammad who endorsed the most recent Islamic chaplains who just joined the military. He was also a key figure in the selection of several of the military’s other Islamic chaplains.

 

Where is Alamoudi now? He is serving a 23-year sentence for terrorism-related financial transactions with the Libyan government and for his purported role in the conspiracy to assassinate then-Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah.

 

In one report, Newsweek journalists Mark Hosenball and Michael Isikoff described Alamoudi as an “expert in the art of deception.” The article in Newsweek noted that Alamoudi espoused moderate, pro-American views while lobbying for Muslim causes in the U.S. But at a rally he expressed support for Hamas and Hezbollah.

 

The American Muslim Council was founded by Alamoudi in 1990. The American Muslim Council is a lobbying group advocating on behalf of Muslims in the United States.

 

The first Islamic military chaplain, Muhammad, is also tied to the al-Qaida-front Muslim World League.

 

Alamoudi’s American Islamic Council recommended Muhammad for appointment.

 

Alamoudi was present at Muhammad’s swearing-in ceremony. He was also at the 1996 swearing-in of the military’s second Muslim chaplain, Lt. (junior grade) Monje Malak Abd al-Muta Ali Noel Jr.

 

A convert to Islam, Muhammad joined the Lost-Found Nation of Islam, a black Muslim group that espoused racial separatism and black nationalism in 1974. Later he claimed that he did not fully subscribe to the radical group’s philosophy but was attracted by the organization’s emphasis on personal responsibility and self-help.

 

Muhammad stated, “In the projects where I grew up, the women were exploited. In the Nation of Islam the men were always polite. They were always clean cut. I felt the Nation of Islam had more to offer than the church.”

 

Muhammad detailed his association with the Muslim World League during a 1993 interview with Muslehuddin Ahmed of Islam4all.com.

 

According to the website, Muhammad was in discussion with the charity to help establish the army’s Muslim chaplain program.

 

During the time that Muhammad was associated with the MWL, the group spawned Muslim charities—those charities as it turns out, were alleged fronts for al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden.

 

As Muhammad stated to Islam4all, he was an “honored guest” of the MWL for his pilgrimage to Mecca.

 

“He was also full of praise for the Muslim World League for its excellent arrangements, which it had made for its guests, and was highly impressed by its dedicated Secretary General Dr. Ahmad Muhammad Ali, who symbolized for him a model Muslim leader,” Islam4all reported.

 

Furthermore the Islamic website reported that Muhammad said he would work closely with the MWL and he began an “ongoing interaction with the MWL in shaping and developing a vital Islamic presence within the U.S. Armed Forces.”

 

Muhammad “evinced keen interest in the magazines and other publications of the Muslim World League and other similar organizations for support in his Dawah (outreach) work.” reported the website.

These events will happen again if we are not vigilant. The wheel of islamic terrorism still turning. Never let our guard down. This problem will not go away by doing nothing. Let us expose the hatred and violence against non-muslims and the evil of islam. Be aware that there are radical muslims who don’t hesitate to kill their own fellow muslims who don’t conform to their idea and standard of a true muslim, how much more of us non-muslims, hated and despised by their god who only yearn for our suffering, misfortune and distruction, they won’t even blink their eyes cutting off our head. All of these are inspired by the hateful and violent verses of the koran and events in the hadith.

Would you Believe ‘Islamist’ and ‘Jihad’ not part of 911?

John R. Houk

So who flew jet airliners into the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001? Was it DB Cooper hijacking cash? Was it extortionists demanding money and a free pass to Cuba or they will crash the jet into the Twin Towers? Or was it perhaps Right Wing Extremists demanding personal sovereignty from the U.S. government? Maybe it was friends of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn showing the resurrection of the violent Communist the Weathermen Underground?

 

NO!

 

It was Islamic terrorist members of al Qaeda executing jihad against the symbol of American Wealth. AND these Islamic terrorist were not using telekinesis of their minds fighting an inner struggle to comply with Allah. Rather these dudes hijacked airliners with some kind of weaponry and violence probably murdering the pilots then commandeering the jets with skills learned in American flight school to fly them into the Twin Towers.

 

The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center told the truth with a short documentary using terminology like “Islamist” and “jihad”. I would have been even more direct by saying “Islamic Terrorists” following the original Islam of the religion’s founder Mohammed.

 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants to perpetuate the Stealth Jihad lie that Islam had nothing to do with al Qaeda Islamic terrorists or violent Jihad to spread Islam by destroying the enemies of Allah.

 

If you foolishly agree CAIR you have no need to read further.

 

If you want to take a stand for America like New York City’s first responders and so something about CAIR deceptive lies; ACT! For America is providing phone call content and contact info as well as email content to send to the 911 Memorial Museum to tell them their 7 minute documentary got it right AND to not allow Islamic terrorist sympathizers like CAIR be the bully that stops the truth. ACT! For America will even send the email for free. They are not asking for a donation to make it happen. But I am adding donation info at the end anyway.

 

3. THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF THE ATTACK WAS TO CALL THE U.S. TO ISLAM.

 

In Osama bin Laden’s letter to the American people, which was published on November 24, 2002, he put it succinctly: “The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam.” This was the ultimate purpose of the 9/11 attacks: to weaken the American economy, so that ultimately the American government would collapse. That, presumably, would end what bin Laden and his allies considered to be unacceptable American interference in Muslim countries, and pave the way for the U.S. itself to become an Islamic state. (From Doc’s Talk; point 3 of essay – “5 Truths the 9/11 Museum Should Tell About 9/1”; By Robert Spencer; 5/29/14)

 

 

One of the chief reasons that CAIR is waging war against words like “jihad” and “Islamist” is because the group doesn’t want its ideology to be discussed and it certainly doesn’t want Americans to know that it and Al-Qaeda share the same overall Islamist ideology. Their disagreements are only about target selection, rhetoric and tactics. (Found at The Counter Jihad Report – 4/28/14)

CAIR PRESSURES THE NATIONAL 9/11 MEMORIAL & MUSEUM TO REMOVE “ISLAMIST” AND “JIHAD” FROM HISTORIC DEPICTION

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is at it again.

This time they are working to water down a 7-minute film entitled, “The Rise of Al Qaeda” that will be shown at the soon-to-be opened September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center. Specifically, CAIR wants to whitewash the description of Al Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks by having the film edited to remove the words “Islamists” and “jihad.”

We must stop CAIR now! We cannot allow CAIR to rewrite the history of 9/11.

Removing the accurate description of those who caused this heinous attack not only would be factually incorrect, but would be a tragic slap in the face to all Americans, as well as a disservice to all future generations by misrepresenting the truth.

Further, if Jihad truly means to “struggle” and not warfare to establish the religion, how does CAIR explain the names of terrorist organizations such as these?

 

 

o   Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami (Pakistan, Bangladesh, India)

 

o   Islamic Front for Armed Jihad (Algeria)

 

o   Islamic Jihad for the Liberation of Palestine (Lebanon)

 

o   Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine (Israel)

 

o   Islamic Jihad Organization (Lebanon)

 

o   Islamic Jihad Union (Uzbekistan)

 

o   Jama’at al-Jihad al-Islami (Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Russia)

 

o   Laskar Jihad (Indonesia)

 

o   United Jihad Council (India)

 

 

You cannot deny the fact that there is a connection between Islam and Jihad. The reality is Jihad is a tenet of Islam. Depicting anything else – and at a memorial dedicated to the remembrance of the 9/11 attacks no less – would be factually dishonest.

We must take action and we must take action now. The National September 11 Memorial and Museum officials must hear what the rest of America thinks about this issue, otherwise, the only ones they will hear from are groups like CAIR. This is your turn to protect historical truth from being erased from the 9/11 Museum. We owe it to our children to keep the truth alive.

Can we count on you to take a moment to contact the 9/11 Memorial Museum about this issue today?

*** IMPORTANT AND TIME-SENSITIVE ACTION ITEM! ***

Please contact the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center today to let them know that you fully support their film, “The Rise of Al Qaeda,” as it currently stands and that you oppose any modification of that film to whitewash historically accurate depictions of who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on our nation.

Let them know that including the words “Islamist” and “jihad” are historically accurate and in no way impugn the entire Muslim community.

We have provided all the contact information you need to take this action.

We have also written a sample call and e-mail script for you, to make this as easy as possible. (NOTE: The e-mail script is modifiable if you wish to convey the message in your own words. We ask that you please be respectful at all times.)

Two national Islamist organizations and other aligned Arab-American groups have hopped on the bandwagon to expunge references to “Islamic” or “Islamist” from a film about al-Qeda (sic), which will be shown at the National September 11 Memorial Museum.

 

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) are among the groups that called the video “ill-considered and insufficiently vetted” in a letter to museum leadership.

 

The signatories demand that “stereotypical” elements in the film, “The Rise of Al-Qaeda,” be addressed and (Islamic Groups Try to Censure Free Speech at 9/11 Memorial; By John Rossomando; the algemeiner; 4/28/14 12:24 AM)

 

CAIR is American-Islamic linked to Islamic terrorist organization Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. MPAC is also a Muslim Brotherhood front group. Hmm … Is it any wonder these two stealth promoters of Islamic terrorism and radical Islam are whining about the al Qaeda documentary?

 

In an email sent by Brigitte Gabriel of ACT! For America she explains why CAIR and MPAC are full of bologna in their criticism of 911 Memorial Museum documentary “The Rise of al Qaeda”.

Attempting to Rewrite the History of September 11th

On May 21st, more than 13 years after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, the National September 11 Memorial Museum will open its doors to the public to make certain that Americans will never forget what happened that day.

Unfortunately, some are working to ensure that future generations of Americans never fully understand the attacks, which were the most deadly terrorist attacks in the history of the United States.

One of the exhibits in the museum will feature a 7-minute film called “The Rise of Al Qaeda.”

In that film, the Al Qaeda terrorists are referred to as “Islamists” who were waging “jihad” with the attacks upon America.

Those two words, “Islamists” and “Jihad” have caused a controversy, with a variety of critics calling for whitewashing the description of Al Qaeda and the attacks by sanitizing the museum commentary by removing those two words.

This would be a tragic mistake.

Despite the complaints, the use of the terms “Islamist” and “jihad” in no way suggest that all Muslims are terrorists or support violence. No serious analyst in his or her right mind would make such an assertion.

Nevertheless, in warfare the enemy’s reality becomes your reality, so it makes perfect sense to call Islamists “Islamists” and to call Jihad “Jihad.” After all, in World War II, Nazis were referred to as Nazis, because they themselves referred to themselves as such.

America’s enemies in the war on terror do NOT refer to themselves as “extremists,” “militants,” or “radicals.”

They refer to themselves as Jihadists and Jihadis.

Interestingly, critics on both sides of the issue seem to dislike the term “Islamist.” Apologists for organizations such as Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood claim that the term too closely identifies Islam with “extremism.” Many in the countershariah and counterjihad movement say that the term “Islamist” is a term concocted in the West that has no meaning in the Islamic world.

Both are wrong.

The first known use of the term “Islamist” came from the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the late dictator of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism.

Khomeini said: “We are neither capitalists nor communists. We are Islamists.”

There are many different definitions listed for the term “Islamist,” but that is not the point. The point is that one of the world’s most prominent Muslim leaders coined the term to describe the revolution he led. It is entirely proper for the 9/11 museum to use the term “Islamists” to describe Al Qaeda.

The same is true for the term “jihad.” There has long been a debate about the use of the term jihad, with Muslim Brotherhood organizations such as CAIR particularly objecting to its use to describe violent warfare or terrorism.

The Muslim Brotherhood in America aims to convince Americans that Jihad only means “to struggle” or, more specifically, an internal, personal struggle.

This is only partially correct and any campaign that claims that the term Jihad only means an internal, personal struggle amounts to disinformation. The dualistic nature of Islam, in this case as it applies to the meaning of “Jihad,” is well documented both in historical Islamic doctrine and in contemporary use of the term.

And Jihad definitely does not only mean an internal, personal struggle. In fact, the most widespread meaning of the term that is of particular interest to Westerners who are threatened by Jihad does in fact entail violence.

A false and misleading statement has been attributed to the San Francisco chapter head of CAIR, Zahra Billoo:

“A common misconception of the word jihad is that it means armed struggle or holy war, and that is something that has been perpetrated by many who’ve made careers out of pushing anti-Muslim sentiment.”

Such a meaning for Jihad has nothing to do with anyone with an “anti-Muslim sentiment.” It has everything to do with Islam itself.

Let us examine definitions of Jihad from two authoritative sources.

Jihad According to the Quran

The first is the Quran itself. In this case, specifically The Noble Qu’ran, translated into English by two scholars: Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali, PhD, professor of Islamic Faith and Teachings at the Islamic University, Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah, Saudi Arabia and Dr. Muhammad Mushin Khan of the same institution. The Noble Qu’ran was published by Darussalam Publishers and Distributors, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It has been catalogued by King Fahad National Library. On page 818, in a glossary accompanying the text of the Quran, The Noble Qu’ran provides the following definition of Jihad:

 

Jihad: Holy fighting in the Cause of Allah or any other kind of effort to make Allah’s Word superior. Jihad is regarded as one of the fundamentals of Islam”


Can the Quran itself be promoting “anti-Muslim sentiment” as CAIR’s Zahra Billoo asserts?


Jihad According to Shariah

Our second source is Reliance of the Traveler: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law.

Reliance of the Traveler is one of the world’s most widely read manuals of Shariah law. It has been endorsed by a variety of Islamic authorities, including Al Azhar University in Cairo, IIIT (International Institute of Islamic Thought) in Herndon, Virginia, the Fiqh Council of North America, the Islamic Fiqh Academy in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the Mufti of the Jordanian Armed Forces and the Imam of the Mosque of Darwish Pasha in Damascus, Syria.

These can hardly be termed as those pushing “anti-Muslim sentiment” as Billoo claims.

On page 599 of Reliance of the Traveler, readers can find the following passage:

 

o9.0 JIHAD

(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion…

The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus is such Koranic verses as:

(1) “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2:216);
(2) “Slay them wherever you find them” (Koran 4:89);
(3) “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9:36);

and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

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

and the hadith reported by Muslim,

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

 

Jihad According to Terrorists

If Jihad truly means to “struggle” and not warfare to establish the religion, how does CAIR explain the names of all these terrorist organizations?

Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami (Pakistan, Bangladesh, India)
Islamic Front for Armed Jihad (Algeria)
Islamic Jihad for the Liberation of Palestine (Lebanon)
Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine (Israel)
Islamic Jihad Organization (Lebanon)
Islamic Jihad Union (Uzbekistan)
Jama’at al-Jihad al-Islami (Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Russia)
Laskar Jihad (Indonesia)
United Jihad Council (India)

So, it is completely appropriate for the 9/11 museum to use the term “jihadist” and “jihad” to describe Al Qaeda terrorists and their activity.

Conclusion

We suspect that the sensitivity expressed with regard to the 9/11 museum goes way beyond the use of the terms “Islamist” and “jihad.”

The fact is, our country has never truly come to terms with the role that Islam plays in Jihadist terrorism.

It would be great if there was truly no connection whatsoever between Islam and Jihad. But the reality is Jihad is a tenet of Islam.

As previously stated, in warfare the enemy’s reality becomes your reality. It makes no difference what Americans think about the stated motivations and doctrine behind the actions of Al Qaeda. The only thing that truly matters is what the leaders and members of Al Qaeda think about why they wage warfare.

The fact of the matter is, Al Qaeda justify their actions by invoking Islam and Allah:

 

In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate,

The General Command of the al-Qaeda Organization Statement on the Succession of Sheikh Osama Bin Laden in the al-Qaeda Organization’s Command

With hearts that are satisfied with Allah’s ordainment, and assured of Almighty Allah’s promise and His good reward, the Islamic umma, the mujahideen in the al-Qaeda Organization, and in other groups received the news of the martyrdom of the reviver imam, the jihadist immigrant Sheikh Osama Bin-Muhammad Bin Laden, may Allah rest his soul in peace. We pray to the Almighty Allah to raise his rank and to reward him, on behalf of us and the Muslim umma, with the best of rewards.

Since jihad is continuing until the Day of Resurrection … the General Command of the al-Qaeda Organization announces, after completion of consultations, that Sheikh Dr Abu-Muhammad Ayman al-Zawahiri, may Allah guide him to success, has taken over command of the group…

 

Statement from Al Qaeda
Announcing Zawahiri as the
New leader of Al Qaeda after
Osama Bin Laden’s death

 

All these sins and crimes committed by the Americans are a clear declaration of war on Allah, his messenger and Muslims.

The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies – civilians and military – is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in every country in which it is possible to do it…

We, with Allah’s help, call on every Muslim who believes in Allah and wishes to be rewarded to comply with Allah’s order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it.

 

Ayman al-Zawahiri
Leader of Al Qaeda

 

It would be a tragic mistake if the 9/11 museum was to erase the role that their Islamic faith played in the leadership and membership of Al Qaeda’s horrific actions on September 11th, 2001.

BENGHAZI REVEAL PART ONE


Change to Believe in - Benghazi 4 Abandoned

CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN?

I am a great (or infamous depending on one’s outlook) cross poster of blogs or online news sources. One of my favorite people to cross post is the blogger Danny Jeffrey (older but still active – Freedom Rings 1776 and Fix Bayonets). In fact I have enjoyed Danny’s perspective so much that I noticed I was cross posting a lot of his articles. So I have slowed down on doing this.

 

I am on the email list of Fix Bayonets and a post crossed my eyes that Danny was sharing his outlook on Benghazigate. You may or may not agree with Danny’s perspective but he is very hard to refute except perhaps conclusions based on opinion more than facts. In the blogging world facts are like math – they don’t lie. However unlike math facts can be massaged to slant toward one’s perspective. Too much massaging may lead to the danger of turning facts into mirages; i.e. something you want to see but really is not there.

 

Whatever your take on Benghazigate Danny Jeffrey is one of the best sources to build an information base. Enjoy the read.

BENGHAZI REVEAL PART ONE

 

By Danny Jeffrey

March 10, 2014 8:42 AM

Fix Bayonets

 

Last year I wrote an essay about how little people really know about what is going on, due not to a lack of interest, but to the junk sites that from which they tend to get their information. I am about to prove it.

Benghazi is probably the most mentioned city in the world and has been for nearly the last two years. Everyone talks about, reads about it, posts about it and few know anything other than the fact that four men died there and it was due to Obama allowing them to die, for reasons of his own. Beyond those basics there is only confusion and conjecture. Still, in an effort to waken those who are trying to waken others I shall show you what real research can do and then hope you reconsider using some of the sources I provided inWake Up America‘.

In March of 2011 ‘Rebels’ were involved in an attempted overthrow of Qaddafi. I emphasized ‘Rebels’ because most were not rebels as such. The vast majority of these people were paid militias, and a great many of them were Al Qaeda. The powers that be behind the Obama regime thought it best if we helped to topple a dictator and hand his nation over to Islamic radicals. The simple fact of the matter is that Robert Gates and the Joint Chiefs of Staff were opposed to our becoming involved in a war in Libya, citing no national interest. Credit our intervention to three women who overruled the JCS; Samantha Power, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice.

At any rate we became involved, with John ‘Traitor’ McCain leading the cheering section and CIA spook Christopher Stevens helping to arm the forces of Al Qaeda. Stevens arrived in Benghazi in the middle of the night aboard a Greek freighter. He spent the night in a hotel and moved the next day due to a car bomb going off in the parking lot.

I love using links from Obama’s loyal media for when they concede something you know you have a live one on the line.

ABC tells us

Stevens, whose diplomatic foothold were a couple of battered tables, was literally on the rebels’ side while the revolution was at its most vulnerable and in danger of being crushed by Gadhafi’s troops who were moving on the city. The threat was pushed back at the last minute by the intervention of NATO planes which began bombing Gadhafi’s tanks and troops.

At the risk of sounding disloyal I must ask; by what right and in whose interest did we do this? After Ronald Reagan had a bomb dropped in Qaddafi’s front yard that little warlord learned some manners and actually joined us in the war on terror after 911. Not wanting another crater in his yard he had been helping to expose and eliminate Al Qaeda. Then we turned on him, aiding Al Qaeda in his overthrow and murder.

Paraphrasing Julius Caesar Hillary Clinton showed her true worth in this 12 second video as she said laughing We Came. We Saw. He Died.” Qaddafi did not simply die. He was tortured and murdered. Raped with sharpened sticks at the hands of savages we empowered until he bled to death. And her victory chant tells me everything that I need to know about the woman that is being groomed for the Oval Office.

Christopher Stevens was rewarded for his efforts by being appointed Ambassador to Libya and he returned there in May of 2012 assuming his new role.

The following is a brief from the U.S. Department of State entitled ‘Securing Our Embassies Overseas’. It details the planning that goes into the safeguarding of our embassies abroad, its Ambassadors, support teams, and families. If this plan had been followed. Four Americans, now dead, would be alive today. The Obama regime intentionally disregarded all protocol and with malice aforethought allowed these men to be killed.


Excerpt:


Following the bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Nairobi (Kenya) in 1998, security countermeasures for our U.S. missions overseas took on greater importance, and this continues today.

Recall this excerpt as I later present a timeline of events as they transpired, for the State Department was far more aware of the danger than was the Ambassador as they removed his safeguards.

 

Another link from the State Department, this one describing the two types of mobile defense teams available to protect our ambassadors. One is referred to as a Security Support Team and their duties are described as:


A Security Support Team’s job is to augment and enhance security at U.S. Embassies and Consulates that are faced with civil unrest, hostile hosts or any other threat. Recent deployments included Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Jamaica and Cote d’ Ivoire.

And the Tactical Support Team:


Tactical Support Teams deliver counter-assault capability in high-threat protective details both overseas and in the United States. Missions have included deployments to Niger, Zaire, Mauritania, Mali, Indonesia, the Philippines, Yemen, Pakistan, Tunisia and Jamaica.

One would tend to believe that with such support teams available an Ambassador should feel safe, but the fact of the matter is that the Security Support Team was removed and the Tactical Support Team was ordered to “Stand Down!”

Such executive behavior rings not of leadership but of premeditation.

There are a set of standards applied to any foreign mission site. Among them are three meter high walls topped with barbed wire. The building must be set back from those walls by a minimum of one hundred feet. That building must also be equipped with bullet proof glass, tactical doors, and a fire proof safe room. The site in Benghazi had none of the above and could only be operated under the terms of a special waiver from the State Department.

Again, calling upon one of Obama’s lapdog’s…


From CNN


Excerpt:


By leaving the Consulate open for business with a waiver, it essentially meant that no barriers were required, no safe room was needed, and multiple layers of security weren’t necessary.

The State Dept’s waiver was mentioned in the Ambassador’s diary which was recovered by CNN on site as the FBI was weeks getting there.

Then we have this video on the topic from CNN as well. Note that such a waiver on such a facility had to be signed off not only by the State Dept, and Libya, but the Ambassador as well. Why was the Ambassador willing to agree to an unprotected mission in the very pits of hell? More on that topic later.

Recall the basic Security Support Team tasked with protecting the Ambassador. Calling yet again on the Obama loyal:


This from ABC…


U.S. Security Official In Libya Tells Congressional Investigators About ‘Inappropriately Low’ Security At Benghazi Post


I shall use no excerpt from this link as you should read all of it. It is by Jake Tapper, who pulls no punches.

U.S. Security personnel for the Ambassador were limited to three men and they were not allowed to carry weapons as we did not want to offend the ‘sensitivities’ of the Libyans. Their armed support was recruited from the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, but they were nowhere to be found on the night of September 11, 2012. F17MB has a Facebook page.

Several entries on the militia’s Facebook page openly profess sympathy for Ansar al-Sharia, the hardline Islamist extremist group widely blamed for the deadly attack on the mission. The State Department did not respond to a Newsmax request for an explanation as to why the February 17th Martyrs Brigade was hired to protect the mission.

This is a one time (sic) cover from their FB page:

AN INTRODUCTION TO ‘FIX BAYONETS’

 

For the sake of long term readers, I must briefly explain my need for a new website:

I have an insurmountable problem with my previous blog that has to do with the ‘feed’. Everything about it works just fine with the exception of it not being able to send Emails to my followers whenever I post a new essay. I have learned what caused the cumulative problem but am still unable to repair it, and so today I turn a new page. Armed with a new knowledge of how to avoid future problems, I am relegating Freedom Rings 1776 to a background archive, totally accessible but no longer serving my needs.

There is also a second reason for what I have begun. My first website was named with a sense of optimism, while this one is from a sense of desperation, for we are most assuredly losing in the political arena. Since Obama was first chosen by the Progressive overlords, we have been subjected to betrayal, deceit, a loss of liberty, and READ THE REST

I Found Clarity in my Thoughts of Islam


Moderates hold Islam bomb - Radicals lite Fuse

John R. Houk

© March 3, 2014

 

I don’t wish to sound too sophomoric (a favorite term used by one of my History Professors when a student or pundit said something he considered beneath his intellect), but I have to make that sound – SHAZZAM!

 

I just read an essay by Dr. Mary Habeck a PhD in history from Yale; a MA in International Relations from Yale and a BA in International Relations, Russian, and Spanish from Ohio State. Those are a lot of letters.

 

Dr. Habeck’s essay has brought the best clarity for me to understand Islam in that so-called fine line between Moderate and Radical. I use the term “so-called” because I have had quite a bit of difficulty in seeing the difference in beliefs between Moderate and Radical Islam even if there is a difference in practice.

 

Here is my difficulty with the concepts of “Moderate” and “Radical” within Islam. ALL practicing Muslims believe the Quran is the direct manifested word from their deity Allah as delivered from whom Muslims consider the perfect man their prophet Mohammed (or Muhammad or Mohamet or whatever depending in the time frame someone writes about this guy). That means the Quran is an absolutist holy document. Then the other commentaries on the Quran such as the Hadith and Sira (or whatever combination the Sunna is as part of the Sira – I am unsure of the difference between Sira and Sunna) are of value depending on which Muslim scholar majority opinion says which commentary are authentic or bogus. When there is wide agreement on authenticity on Muslim commentaries those commentaries are nearly as holy as the Quran in its force but still NOT the very word of Allah.

 

I reassert the word “ALL” because it doesn’t matter whether one is Moderate or Radical, all Muslims believe what I just wrote about the Quran, Hadith and Sira. What Dr. Habeck has accomplished for me is how the Moderate and Radical Muslim interpret the meanings of the Quran, Hadith and Sira.

 

A Muslim who contends that he/she is Moderate will undoubtedly respond, “Well DUHHHH!” However, in Dr. Habeck’s clarity I also comprehend why there is little public condemnation from a Moderate or as the good scholar Doctor writes, a “typical Muslim” about the terrorist actions of a Radical Muslim. The Moderate Muslim will consider the violence and harshness employed by Radical Muslims as un-Islamic. Even so the Radical Muslim STILL IS interpreting the Quran, Hadith and Sira from their original intent. Ergo even if the interpretation varies in implementation in the now, the Radical Islamic goals of global Islam, a global Caliphate and an absolute Islamic society governed by Islamic Sharia Law; the ends of Radical Islam do not differ from the ends of Moderate Islam. That which differs is the MEANS.

 

The Moderate (or “typical”) Muslim have updated their “MEANS” with modernity which is indeed is more peaceful than the “MEANS” of Radical Islam. Nonetheless, wherever Islam is already supreme a Moderate Muslim will view Islam as a superior way of life for society and law. This is the case even if Moderate Islam by activity is of a more peaceful manner. In an Islamic society Islamic Superiority is more than an ideological concept it is a norm that is sacrosanct. Hence when a non-Muslim is viewed as being insulting to that which holy even Moderate Muslims can be stirred to go nuts against that non-Muslim.

 

In Western society differences of opinion in ideology or religion are viewed as an individual right. Especially in the USA where we have enshrined Liberty in the First Amendment of our Constitution. Thus everyone is entitled to their opinion as long as it does not elicit harm to individuals or the community. In America the radical side of Leftism which is an offshoot of Marxism which leads to absolute State control of individuals especially by force is frowned upon even by center-Left Americans. Also the radical side of the Right Wing such as unrestrained Capitalism-Free Market that harms individuals in the name of the bottom line of profit is frowned upon even by center-Right Americans. Also there are the violent Right Wingers that will utilize violence to bring racial superiority ideologies that leads to the harm of individuals is heavily frowned upon by center-Left and center-Right Americans. The key for Americans at the least unconsciously is the harm to individual Liberty.

 

The Right of individual Liberty is absolutely foreign in Islamic society. The actions, beliefs and Freedoms are viewed through the filter of submission to Allah. If an action, belief or perceived freedom deviates from submission to Allah as understood from the Quran, Hadith and Sira is unacceptable in Islamic society.

 

This is the real essence of the clash of societies when it comes to Western thought and Islamic thought!

 

Individual Rights are the very identity of Americans and to a filtered extent due to history to all Western influenced nations. Submission to Allah is the very identity of Muslims. As long as there is a U.S. Constitution Americans as a whole will not accept Islam. As long as the Quran is considered absolute closely followed by authentic Hadith and Sira; Muslims as a whole will not accept or conceive Liberty as a good thing.

 

Just to be clear – even though Dr. Habeck brought some clarity to my mind, I cannot speak that this is the same clarity that Dr. Habeck has a conclusion of an irreparable clash between Western Liberty and Islamic submission. In fact the essay I read “Attacking America: Al Qaeda’s Grand Strategy in Its War with the World” is less about an inevitable clash between the West and Islam and more about American leaders underestimating the global agenda of Radical Islam especially as embodied in the Islamic terrorist organization al Qaeda. Even so – I have clarity about America and Islam. And thus I feel actually feel better about distrusting all of Islam in general. This is the case even if I am labeled an Islamophobic bigot. If the love of America makes me a bigot, then a bigot I will be when it comes to Islam.

Benghazi – The Signs of Al Qaeda


NYT Propaganda Benefitting Hillary

The latest Benghazi Cover-up idiocy has been in the Conservative News Media and Conservative Blogs (Example: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) ever since the NY Times has evidently fallen prey (three-days later NY Times sticks to propaganda) to the Obama-Hillary propaganda machine. America’s Leftists/Liberals are running with NYT historical revisionism as an exoneration of Obama-Hillary abandoning Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty to their deaths when there was ample time to beef up security and there is evidence a timely rescue could have occurred. Dawn Perlmutter writes an article today further exposing the NYT as a propaganda tool by adding some information about the Islamic terrorist organization Ansar al Shariah’s connection to al Qaeda that the NYT says does not exist. Believing the NYT is placing yourself on the idiotic end of gullibility scale. Read Perlmutter’s analysis of an al Qaeda connection to Ansar al Shariah the murderers of the Benghazi Four.

Benghazi – The Signs of Al Qaeda

 

By Dawn Perlmutter

January 2, 2014

Middle East Forum

Also posted at FrontPageMagazine.com

 

The latest version of the Benghazi cover up is being argued with semantics of whether the jihadist group that attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 was part of the “core” al Qaeda network. State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said,

 

“…at this point, we have no indications that core al-Qaida, which I think is what most people are referring to when they talk about, quote, al-Qaida, directed or planned what happened in Benghazi. …..So it is not the U.S. Government’s assessment or position that Ansar al-Sharia is an affiliate of core al-Qaida. We don’t recognize them as an affiliate of core al-Qaida… These folks don’t carry ID cards. They don’t come out and wear a t-shirt that says, ‘I belong to al-Qaida,’ right?”

 

I beg to differ. In addition to the tremendous amount of evidence and statements by members of the House Intelligence Committee claiming that intelligence indicates al Qaeda was involved and that Ansar al Shariah is widely believed to be affiliated with al Qaeda, there are simpler, more obvious indicators. Ms. Harf is correct, they don’t carry ID cards or wear T-shirts that say “I belong to al Qaeda,” but they do throw hand signs and leave graffiti behind in the same manner as gangbangers that just marked their territory after murdering their rival.

 

The quintessential image that is used in almost every news report about the Benghazi attacks depicts one of the assailants in a white T-shirt with an assault rifle posing with his index finger pointing up in front of the burning consulate. The man is seen in several photos making this gesture using both his left and right hands. This does not signify that he is number one. This gesture is one of the most prevalent Salafi jihadist hand signs. There are images of every al Qaeda leader, including Osama bin Laden, Abu Musab al Zarqawi and others, with their index fingers pointing skywards. Ayman al Zawahiri, the current leader of al Qaeda, is often seen in images making the hand sign. His former top lieutenant Mohammed al Jamal, of the Jamal Network, is believed to have had fighters in the assault on the U.S. diplomatic compound and they would be familiar with this gesture. In October, the State Department designated the Jamal Network as a terrorist group tied to al Qaeda.

 

Benghazi Terrorist Using al Qaeda symbolism 9-11-12

 

The hand gesture also appears on jihadist forums, protest posters, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and in almost every form of al Qaeda propaganda. It is also a favorite gesture among Chechen jihadists, members of the Caucasus Emirate, those most likely responsible for the recent suicide bombings that killed at least 31 people in the city of Volgograd, Russia. Their leader, Doku Umarov, has also been photographed making the jihadi hand sign. For Salafi jihadists groups, the hand gesture of the index finger pointing up represents one God and their willingness to die for Islam, thus attaining martyrdom and entrance into paradise. This Islamist hand sign is also commonly used by radical Imams around the globe while they are recruiting young men to join the global jihad and murder soldiers in their own countries. Although this hand gesture is one of the most recognizable signs of al Qaeda-affiliated jihadist groups, the Obama administration either overlooked, or worse, were unaware of the identifier when they portrayed the attack as a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam film.

 

If there is any doubt that Ansar al Sharia Libya is affiliated with al Qaeda, the hand with the index finger pointing up is the central image of their logo. It also happens to be the primary image in the center of al Qaeda’s logo and al Qaeda-affiliated group logos, such as Jaish al Muhajireen awl Ansar in Syria, al Qaeda in Iraq, Palestinian Taliban and others. Similar to street gangs, symbols and gestures demonstrate affiliation with their larger organizations, such as Folk Nation or People Nation. Like the Bloods or the Crips, Ansar al Sharia should be viewed as one street gang in the al Qaeda Nation. Distinctions between “core” al Qaeda are irrelevant as these Mujahideen gang bangers share the same goals and the same enemies.

 

If the gesture was not enough, the Jihadist gangbangers also decided to leave their mark in graffiti. Two different spray-painted Arabic-language graffiti messages that read “Allahu Akbar” were scrawled on the buildings of the U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya during the 2012 terror attack. Spray painting “Allahu Akbar” is becoming very popular among young jihadists who are vandalizing churches and war monuments with their battle cry in graffiti. Of course, the State Department could claim that the graffiti was just a benign expression of faith, except for the four dead Americans and the burned-out U.S. consulate building.

 

In combination with the quintessential photo of the assailant using the al Qaeda jihadist hand gesture, the messaging was clear that it was not an anti-Islam film protest. Of course, you have to suspend political correctness to be able to interpret the signs that are literally on the wall. Gang identifiers are visual or verbal ways that gang members identify their affiliation. Law enforcement is trained on gang identifiers so that they can recognize violent incidents as being affiliated with particular street gangs or Security Threat Groups. Unfortunately, training on Islamist identifiers is currently prohibited under the Obama administration, which is why obvious signs continue to go unrecognized.

SHTF: Whistleblower Reveals U.S. State Dept. Ships Arms Directly to al-Qaeda…


Benghazi_Four_Never_Forget_1

You can count on Alex Jones to report some info that the Mainstream Media would not even consider reporting. Someone sent this story to me and I have to apologize I do not remember who so that I can full credit for the hat tip. BUT here is the deal … Could the murder of the Benghazi Four – Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods have been a collusion between the Obama Administration and the al Qaeda branch in Libya to kill witnesses to the deal of sending heat seeking missiles to the al Qaeda branch in Syria? No wonder Obama and his Administration are trying to execute a Benghazigate Cover-up.

SHTF: Whistleblower Reveals U.S. State Dept. Ships Arms Directly to al-Qaeda…

 

By Kit Daniels

September 26, 2013

Red Flag

 

VIDEO: Bombshell: Iran Contra Whistleblower Blows The Lid off Benghazi (This link takes you to the 36th minute of the video)

 

 

(KIT DANIELS) — A former CIA gun runner revealed that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in order to cover up the U.S. State Department’s direct arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

 

William Robert “Tosh” Plumlee started his career as a CIA contract pilot in the late 1950s, delivering guns and ammunition on behalf of the agency to Fidel Castro.

 

Plumlee confirmed that such arm deals are still common today, with the State Dept. shipping arms to al-Qaeda via the CIA.

 

During an interview with Alex Jones, Plumlee pointed out that Pat Smith, the mother of an information management officer also killed during the Benghazi attack, received little information from the Obama administration about her son’s murder.

 

“I began to wonder ‘why won’t they tell her anything?’” He asked. “Then a contact of mine in the Middle East, a high-ranking NATO official, mentioned to me that he had reports that the ambassador [J. Christopher Stevens] had been complaining about the dispatches and cables that he had got from the State Department about the weapons being received and [Islamic] radicals armed, including Stinger missiles.”

 

According to Plumlee, Steven was ordered to stand down after he asked the State Department what he should do about the American arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

 

“The ambassador and his people had written a series of field reports and cable dispatches advising our State Department that the rebel factions had been armed with U.S. weapons,” he said. “Now my contention is this: if that is the case, why is that classified as a national security matter?”

 

Plumlee mentioned that Steven’s field notes have not been released by the State Department.

 

These revelations suggest that after Stevens told the State Dept. that he did not want al-Qaeda receiving heat seeking missiles, he was killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi which was designed to take out witnesses to the arms transfer and to suppress Stevens’s reports.

 

The Obama administration then blamed the attack entirely on Islamic protestors enraged by the film Innocence of Muslims while refusing to answer why U.S. special forces were ordered not to aid Stevens and others during the assault.

 

The missiles in question, as well as the other weapons given to al-Qaeda, were transported to Libya by C-130s under the Direct Commercial Sales (DCS) program, which operates within the State Department.

 

As explained by New York Times best-selling author and former journalist Jim Marrs, the DCS program oversees the shipment of U.S. weapons and training to countries around the world.

 

Through its own internal investigations, the State Dept. admitted that firearms supplied by the DCS have ended up in the hands of foreign enemies.

 

Tying it all together, Plumlee stated that the weapons given to al-Qaeda were “U.S. made weapons that came from the DCS program, illegally transported by C-130s” into countries such as Turkey and Jordan and were “dispatched from CIA safe houses to the Syrian rebels.”

 

As we have documented in the past, the Syrian rebels are predominantly al-Qaeda fighters who want to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad in order to install an Islamic state in Syria.

 

If al-Qaeda controls Syria, other nations could easily take advantage of the ensuring chaos and Syria’s reduced sovereignty by extracting trillions of dollars in oil revenue from the country.

 

The Syrian rebels led by the Jabhat al-Nusra Front, the direct offshoot of al-Qaeda in Iraq, were described as the “most effective fighting force in Syria” after filling the void left by the secular Free Syrian Army.

 

Suffering from severe shortages in weapons and supplies, the Free Syrian Army began losing soldiers to the better armed and equipped al-Nusra Front.

 

Now it is known why the al-Nusra Front, and al-Qaeda worldwide, never seem to lack arms: they are receiving weapon shipments directly from the State Dept. Read more via Infowars…

James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence in the Obama Administration, thought so.

Whether or not sensitive weapons technology was moved to Syria is a hotly disputed question in the intelligence community.

Saddam’s WMDs and Russia

http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=5400

 

Introduction

 

In the 1970s and 1980s there were several indications about Saddam Hussein’s development of the WMD programs (biological, chemical and nuclear). The Israeli attack on the Iraqi French-made Osirak nuclear reactor in 1981 slowed down the progress of the Iraq’s nuclear weapons program but the biological and chemical WMDs were highly developed, due to the Soviet assistance, Iraqi scientists and a sophisticated system of procurement, organized by the Iraqi Intelligence in Western Europe and in other parts of the World. The nuclear weapons program was never abandoned by the regime, and before the first Gulf War (1991) Iraq was very close to producing its own nuclear weapons. (There is some evidence that Saddam could have purchased nuclear technology from Pakistan, through Dr. Khan’s network, and that he has tried to buy nuclear weapons or components from China). The war destroyed the technical base for the production. But the highly skilled scientific and technical personnel (over 200) remained in place, dispersed. The regime managed to save their nuclear fuel, many technical means of production and the blueprints of the nuclear weaponization. The after-war international (UN) control proved ineffective. Iraq also saved an essential part of its biological and chemical warfare technology, materials and personnel. Some of the WMDs, materials, specialists from Iraq have been transferred abroad to continue research and to organize the production abroad: mainly to Sudan, Libya and Algeria but also to the neighboring Syria (with a purpose to strengthen Syrian regime’s offensive capabilities against Israel).

 

Saddam regime’s WMD policy after the 1st Gulf War

 

The efforts of the Saddam’s regime to preserve and develop its biological, chemical and even nuclear weapons capabilities have been well documented in a report, submitted to the U.S. House of Representatives by Yossef Bodansky on February 10, 1998 (See: Task Force on Terrorism & Unconventional Warfare, “The Iraqi WMD Challenge — Myths and Reality”). From the very beginning, Saddam Hussein embarked on a policy of concealment and cheating of the UN inspection. Thus the elimination of the Iraqi strategic military programs and the destruction of their technical means have never been completed and fully effective. “Despite Baghdad’s protestations, Iraq does have a small but very lethal operational arsenal of WMD and platforms capable of delivering them throughout the Middle East and beyond.” — summarized Yossef Bodansky in 1998 [page 2 of the report]. This capability was possible due to the following actions: (1) dispersing and hiding of WMD materials, technical means, blueprints for the production and personnel in Iraq proper; (2) transfer of a large part of the Iraqi WMD arsenal, technical means, materials for the production and scientific-technological personnel to other countries, mainly to Sudan, Libya and Algeria, and partly to Yemen and Syria; (3) reviving of the sophisticated system of illegal procurement of WMD technology, sub-systems and strategic materials in Western Europe (mainly Germany, Austria and Switzerland), via other countries (Bulgaria, Belarus, the Ukraine, Poland) and in Asia (Pakistan, Iran, North Korea, China).

 

Iraq was also capable to develop new types of offensive weapons, capable of READ THE REST (Saddam’s WMDs and Russia; By David Dastych; FrontPageMag.com – Originally Canada Free Press; 2/28/06)

 

After reading the Front Page Mag article you can see the CONNECTION TO THE MBH!!!!   Saddam was rallying together the factions that had MBH members all through them with Russia, and this was a Threat to the Dollar continuing to be the Petrol Settlement Currency for OPEC international markets.  Obama was placed in Power to counter this Russian Influence by Bribing the MBH away from Russian Influence.

 

Syria’s Chemical Weapons Came From Saddam’s Iraq

http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/071912-618875-syria-chemical-weapons-came-from-iraq-.htm#ixzz2E7mjc0Dz

 

War On Terror: As the regime of Bashar Assad disintegrates, the security of his chemical arsenal is in jeopardy. The No. 2 general in Saddam Hussein’s air force says they were the WMDs we didn’t find in Iraq.

 

King Abdullah of neighboring Jordan warned that a disintegrating Syria on the verge of civil war puts Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons at risk of falling into the hands of al-Qaida.

 

“One of the worst-case scenarios as we are obviously trying to look for a political solution would be if some of those chemical stockpiles were to fall into unfriendly hands,” he said.

 

The irony here is that the chemical weapons stockpile of Syrian thug Assad may in large part be the legacy of weapons moved from Hussein’s Iraq into Syria before Operation Iraqi Freedom.

 

If so, this may be the reason not much was found in the way of WMD by victorious U.S. forces in 2003.

 

In 2006, former Iraqi general Georges Sada, second in command of the Iraqi Air Force who served under Saddam Hussein before he defected, wrote a comprehensive book, “Saddam’s Secrets.”


 

Anticipating the invasion, his job was to supervise the removal of such weapons and erase as much evidence of Russian involvement as possible.

 

The Russian-assisted “cleanup” operation was entrusted to a combination of GRU and Spetsnaz troops and Russian military and civilian personnel in Iraq “under the command of two experienced ex-Soviet generals, Colonel-General Vladislav Achalov and Colonel-General Igor Maltsev, both retired and posing as civilian commercial consultants.”

 

Washington Times reporter Bill Gertz reported on Oct. 30, 2004, that Achalov and Maltsev had been photographed receiving medals from Iraqi Defense Minister Sultan Hashim Ahmad in a Baghdad building bombed by U.S. cruise missiles during the first U.S. air raids in early March 2003. Apparently they did their job well.

 

An article in the fall 2005 Middle East Quarterly reports that in an appearance on Israel’s Channel 2 on Dec. 23, 2002, Israel’s prime minister, Ariel Sharon, stated: “Chemical and biological weapons which Saddam is endeavoring to conceal have been moved from Iraq to Syria.” According … (READ ENTIRETYSyria’s Chemical Weapons Came From Saddam’s Iraq; By IBD Editorials; Investors Business Daily; 07/19/2012 07:02 PM ET)

 

And this dinner meeting by a Top Democratic leader who had been very Vocal about the WMDs in Iraq and Led the Democratic Party on this Chant in 2004 and beyond [about WMD] not being there, sure could be about making sure Assad keeps those weapons covered up, huh?  I just keep hearing from the Congressional leaders that they just want a Limited attack to send a message when Regime Change was the priority by Obama before. So something’s missing here regarding the Mission, its different now, why???

Secretary of State John Kerry is calling for the overthrow and murder of his friend, Syria’s president Assad, claiming definitively that he used chemical weapons against his own people.

 

John Kerry was a frequent visitor of Assad’s over the last few years. Perhaps no one in U.S. politics knows him better than Kerry who was complimentary of Assad as short as 2 years ago when he referred to him as a “very generous man”.

 

Kerry (America) has not provided the world with any proof other than grainy videos allegedly taken during the event and a declassified report which is probably as reliable as Bush’s Iraq 45 minutes to nuclear launch reports. Assad has emphatically denied the accusations and no independent source has yet confirmed America’s claims.

John Kerry, who is expected to be nominated as secretary of state later this afternoon, has made frequent visits to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

 

Assad is now under fire for mass murdering his own civilians, as he fights an internal war to keep his position of power. Even Obama has called for Assad to go.

 

In February 2009, Kerry led a delegation there to engage Syria. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told visiting US members of Congress on Saturday that the United States should ‘move away from a policy based on dictating decisions.’ Assad’s guests on Saturday included US Senator John Kerry, who headed the third delegation this week to call on the Syrian president’s door as Washington reviews its policies toward countries the previous administration regarded as hostile. Assad told his visitors that future relations should be based on a ‘proper understanding’ by Washington of regional issues and on common interests, SANA news agency reported,” AFP reported at the time.

 

AFP followed up with this report after the visit stating that Kerry believes “Syria is an essential player in bringing peace and stability to the region”:

 

“President Barack Obama’s administration considers Syria a key player in Washington’s efforts to revive the stalled Middle East peace process, US Senator John Kerry said in Damascus on Thursday. ‘Syria is an essential player in bringing peace and stability to the region,’ Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a speech after meeting President Bashar al-Assad. ‘Both the United States and Syria have a very deep interest… in having a very frank exchange on any differences (and) agreements that we have about the possibilities of peace in this region,’ he said in the statement.”

 

Later, a couple months later, Kerry met again with Assad. “US Senator John Kerry met Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for a second time in as many months on Saturday for talks on ‘regional issues,’ the American embassy in Damascus said,” reported the AFP.

 

And in 2011, when Kerry again wanted to go to Syria, his visit was blocked–by the Obama administration. “The Obama administration and France reportedly nixed a visit by U.S. Sen. John Kerry to Syria. Kerry (D-Mass.), the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has cultivated a relationship with the Syrian regime otherwise treated as a pariah in the West in the hope of drawing it away from Iranian influence. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Kerry had planned a visit last month, but the governments of the United States and of French President Nicolas Sarkozy blocked the visit out of concern that it would signal ‘Western weakness’ as … (READ THE REST - Kerry a Frequent Visitor with Syrian Dictator Bashar Al-Assad; By DANIEL HALPER; Weekly Standard; 12/21/12 12:26 PM)

Keeping the Saudis Loyal to the U.S. Dollar is the Key

Sent: 9/5/2013 11:18 AM

 

I found this link someone posted and what is said below makes sense. The use of the Dollar and keeping Saudi loyal to its use is KEY to this Whole Mess!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

It’s becoming clear that Obama has been using the Muslim Brotherhood in a Leverage position to keep Saudi Arabia from just walking all over the USA and EU interests. By Obama siding with other nations and possibly rejecting the dollar as the Trade currency for OPEC energy resources and trying to keep the dollar relevant in this Mess, but Egypt overthrowing the Brotherhood has now moved the goal posts to Syria to try and establish a front for the Brotherhood.

 

Has Saudi Arabia been behind the Middle Eastern War on Terror to Use the West and primarily the USA to TAKE over the Middle East????

 

Syrian War is a Saudi Intelligence Operation

Has Saudi Arabia been behind the Middle Eastern War on Terror to Use the West and primarily the USA to TAKE over the Middle East????

 

Just moments ago, I saw Secretary of State John Kerry admit that the Syrian War is a Saudi operation. And, I watched him squirm in his chair as he said it, because he KNOWS that this is what he’s admitting. I could hardly believe what I was seeing. Even more, he was tacitly admitting Saudi involvement in other interventions.

 

For those of us who have more than half a brain, and at least SOME knowledge of the Middle East… We’ve noticed the fingerprints of Saudi intelligence all over what’s going on in Syria. In fact, I was planning to write about the involvement of the Saudi General Intelligence Services (or, Al Mukhabarat Al A’amah) today, when John Kerry went and poured gasoline on my fire. (And, I must say, John, that you really, REALLY looked uncomfortable making that admission.)

 

So, America will go to war at the behest of their Saudi paymasters. This makes me sick, and it should make you sick, too. This will launch us straight into World War III, and it will be the Saudis that pulled the trigger.

 

For those of you who keep preaching ‘Zionist Conspiracy’, you are complete and utter fools. Furthermore, you have dragged others down with you, and THAT is inexcusable. [Editor: This an excerpt that Tony Newbill posted in this email. There is a lot more including videos. Here is a sneak peak of the rest of which the first sentence is actually the last sentence in which the author castigates Antisemitics that accuse of a “Zionist Conspiracy”:

Jeremiad – Chaos is Coming, Light Always Follows


Jeremiah by Michaelangelo Cistine Chapel

John R. Houk

© September 18, 2013

 

I agree with about 95% of the speculative thoughts of one of my favorite bloggers Danny Jeffrey. For a long time I have bucked the Conservative trend that America should stay out of Syria. I had believed that Chemical Weapons was indeed a threat to our National Security. Syria has been and still is a rogue nation that is a client of Iran and a conduit to Shi’ite Islamic terrorists controlling Lebanon – i.e. Hezbollah.

 

I believed an attack to remove Assad, using the Chemical Weapon pretense, as a good goal to further encircle and mess up Iran’s Shi’ite alliances that desire to control the Middle East Gulf nations.

 

HOWEVER

 

Upon further consideration my distrust of Obama has led me to join my fellow Conservatives in demanding we stay out of Syria. If peace-at-all-costs Obama wants to use military force in Syria then there is something up. This is where Danny Jeffrey’s line of thinking has finally pushed me into the STAY-OUT-OF-SYRIA camp.

 

Apart from the reasons that Danny Jeffrey has presented over the years I have to say Islam definitely is the product of its founding prophet Mohammed. Islam is a cult of violence that is spread viciously until whole non-Muslim cultures are forced to submit to Islam. Sharia Law makes Islamic power simply too difficult for a non-Muslim culture to perpetuate where Muslims possess the power to rule. And that rule is vicious with one goal in mind; i.e. to transform the minds and souls of a non-Muslim culture into an Islamic culture. The alternative for not transforming is a perpetual life of second class misery. Only the most dedicated non-Muslims retain their religious heritage under such circumstances. AND even in retaining a religious heritage that moved the one-time majority to the minority culture, those people eventually conform to the public rules of Islam such as no public worship, no proselytizing of their faith, no criticizing of Islamic culture compared to non-Muslim beliefs as well as submitting to every subservient status that ensures Islamic Supremacism.

 

Yeah, Danny does not touch too much on Islam as a culture of a bunch of little antichrist Islamic Supremacist people ready to execute a bloodbath for any contrivance against Islam. Danny focuses on the political aspects of a Soros-Obama agenda to transform the world into the delusion of a Marxist-Socialist paradise in which all religion and morality is submitted to a State defined Secular Humanist morality. Danny has convinced me. The Soros-Obama gang use Islamic doctrine to destroy Christian Morality that has been the foundation that has made Western Culture and especially America exceptional.

 

You have to notice that the more and more that Christianity has been tossed into irrelevance in Europe the more Socialistic principles, Secular Humanism and State-defined Liberty has transformed the moral landscape of the once mighty Christian Europe. Secularist concepts of morality battles Christianity from the Left while protecting Islamic Radicalism which picks up the pieces of lost Christian morality in Europe. The problem about Islamic morality is its demand of medieval enforcement to conform or else face the prescribed extremely harsh punishment.

 

In the Garden of Eden God gave Adam and Eve were given a choice of faithfulness or to eat the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam and Eve believed the devil’s temptation that eating the forbidden fruit would make them just as God Almighty knowing both Good and Evil. Typically of deceived humanity, Adam and Eve only listened to that which was perceived as self-aggrandized power and having deaf ears to the reality the fruit would also bring the knowledge of Evil. The Soros-Obama agenda is working to create the same circumstances in the USA attempting relegate the Light of Christianity into submerged darkness which is man-created – actually in a spiritual sense the Satanic agenda. Ever since God Almighty gave Lucifer the boot from Heaven along with 1/3 of Lucifer’s deceived Angels the slew-foot agenda was to dethrone the Creator.

 

George Soros and Barack Obama are the unwitting (or more nefariously perhaps witting) dupes of Lucifer-turned-Satan ultimate agenda. Satan is self-deceived that there can be a victory over God. Soros and Obama are a part of that delusive agenda of darkness wittingly or unwittingly.

 

Yeah I know the spiritual side of a future chaos is often not mentioned when Conspiracy dudes talk of economic collapse and a New World Order. Nevertheless, that is also a part of my world view.

 

Check out this quote from a Danny Jeffrey post entitled, “Spreading Terror Near and Far”:

 

Some tell us that our country is on the verge of collapse. I disagree. It has already collapsed, caved in upon itself, and is no more than fallen rubble. A nation’s collapse need not wait for economic ruin, military invasion, or civil war to begin. A great nation is finished when its people forsake their morality as ours have already done. When they follow blindly, choose to consume while not producing, and feed on hatred, then they as a people, are no more.

 

Danny Jeffrey is a modern Jeremiah warning that bad times are coming soon and the warning is now. I sure wish Danny – the 21st Jeremiah – would also show there is a redemption for lost people who blindly chose to follow the delusion. When chaos overtakes illusion, reality often turns the miserable to seek God. Jeremiah shared God’s Word that repentance would restore the Jewish nation. The paradigm is just as valid for Christians of faith.

 

Turning from God brings disaster. Check out God’s Mercy when people turn back to God:

 

Chapter 31

 

31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,[a] says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

 

Chapter 32

 

31 ‘For this city has been to Me a provocation of My anger and My fury from the day that they built it, even to this day; so I will remove it from before My face 32 because of all the evil of the children of Israel and the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke Me to anger—they, their kings, their princes, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 33 And they have turned to Me the back, and not the face; though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not listened to receive instruction. 34 But they set their abominations in the house which is called by My name, to defile it. 35 And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.’

 

36 “Now therefore, thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning this city of which you say, ‘It shall be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence’: 37 Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them in My anger, in My fury, and in great wrath; I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely. 38 They shall be My people, and I will be their God; 39 then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. 41 Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.’

 

Chapter 33

 

14 ‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘that I will perform that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah:

 

15 ‘In those days and at that time
I will cause to grow up to David
A Branch of righteousness;
He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
16 In those days Judah will be saved,
And Jerusalem will dwell safely.
And this is the name by which she will be called:

 

THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.’[a]  (Jeremiah 31: 31-34; 32: 31-41; 33: 14-16 NKJV)

 

 

Really you should read the whole chapters of Jeremiah 31-33. You get a picture of a culture descending into immorality and then how misery returns people back to God who then dispenses Mercy rather than more Justice with a Promise of a better covenant. Can you say Jesus Christ the Son of God, Redeemer and Savior?

 

Now if Danny Jeffrey’s Jeremiah predictions rings true for Americans experiencing misery via the loss of the world’s greatest Constitution providing for a nation of laws rather than for a nation ruled by legal fiat. Then check this out:

 

21 1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John,[a] saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

 

5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me,[b] “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

 

6 And He said to me, “It is done![c] I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things,[d] and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving,[e] abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

 

9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me[f] and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g] 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h] Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

 

22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it,[a] for the glory[b] of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved[c] shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.[d] 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.[e]

 

22 1 And he showed me a pure[a] river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (Revelation 21: 1-11; 22-26; 22: 1-5 NKJV)

 

You need to know Jesus wins. God’s Will is no longer tedious to follow because the full Redemption of spirit, soul and body imprints God in our very nature. Soros loses. Obama loses. Islam loses. Now if you have not read Spreading Terror Near and Far” yet, then you should! In the end God wins; however the Danny Jeffrey Jeremiad brings a little clarity that too many people have their head in the sand ignoring the seasons and the times.
