In a recent Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC) fundraising email I discovered even more SMOKING GUN evidence that the entirety of the Obama Administration conspired to lie about the Benghazi attack to American voters for political reasons. The CCC email doesn’t harp on the political reasons as I think it should. You have to realize the political reasons were to ensure the reelection of Comrade Obama as the President of the United States of America in November 2012. The Benghazi Islamic terrorist attack on the diplomatic annex was a planned attack on September 11, 2012. Obama tried to make that attack appear to voters that the Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous motivated riot due to a sophomoric made Youtube video produced in America that was designed to be provocatively racist against Islam.
If you have ever gotten to see what is billed as a Youtube trailer before it was yanked you know the video is so poorly made that it is almost humorous. Unfortunately Free Speech in Islam’s Sharia Law is blasphemous so it is true Muslims were offended. SO WHAT! The Obama Administration has forced American Christians to participate in so many offensive measures from killing unborn lives (taxpayer supported abortions), forcing Christian Hospitals to perform abortions on demand, to force businesses owned by Christians to cater to the service needs of homosexuals even though that lifestyle is an oft repeated abomination to the Presence of God in the Holy Bible and more.
Christian Rights are vacated in the name multicultural acceptance. Christians are forced to absorb the mirth of atheistic Leftists and abortionists, Muslims spewing hate toward Christians (See Also HERE), homosexuals spewing hate toward Biblical Christians and more.
I have no doubts that the Obama Administration tried to both assuage Muslims and fool American voters that his Presidency is totally supportive of a Muslim’s right to go crazy due to multicultural deference.
Is lying to voters to gain an election victory a crime in the USA?
This is not just executive overreach. In many cases, Obama’s exercise of authoritarian power is criminal. His executive branch is responsible for violations of the Arms Export Control Act in shipping weapons to Syria, the Espionage Act in Libya, and IRS law with regard to the targeting of conservative groups. His executive branch is guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Benghazi and in the Fast and Furious scandal, and bribery in its allocation of waivers in Obamacare and tax dollars in its stimulus spending. His administration is guilty of obstruction of justice and witness tampering.
That excerpt above lists only a fraction of the legal infractions committed either by President Obama’s direction and/or Obama’s Executive Branch. And there is no criminal investigations! Why?
By the decision of the Court in Mississippi v. Johnson,720 in 1867, the President was placed beyond the reach of judicial direction, either affirmative or restraining, in the exercise of his powers, whether constitutional or statutory, political or otherwise, save perhaps for what must be a small class of powers that are purely ministerial.721 An application for an injunction to forbid President Johnson to enforce the Reconstruction Acts, on the ground of their unconstitutionality, was answered by Attorney General Stanberg, who argued, inter alia, the absolute immunity of the President from judicial process.722 The Court refused to permit the filing, using language construable as meaning that the President was not reachable by judicial process but which more fully paraded the horrible consequences were the Court to act. First noting the limited meaning of the term “ministerial,” the Court observed that “[v]ery different is the duty of the President in the exercise of the power to see that the laws are faithfully executed, and among these laws the acts named in the bill. . . . The duty thus imposed on the President is in no just sense ministerial. It is purely executive and political.
“An attempt on the part of the judicial department of the government to enforce the performance of such duties by the President might be justly characterized, in the language of Chief Justice Marshall, as ‘an absurd and excessive extravagance.’
Rare has been the opportunity for the Court to elucidate its opinion in Mississippi v. Johnson, and, in the Watergate tapes case,724 it held the President amenable to subpoena to produce evidence for use in a criminal case without dealing, except obliquely,[p.580]with its prior opinion. The President’s counsel had argued the President was immune to judicial process, claiming “that the independence of the Executive Branch within its own sphere . . . insulates a President from a judicial subpoena in an ongoing criminal prosecution, and thereby protects confidential Presidential communications.”725 However, the Court held, “neither the doctrine of separation of powers, nor the need for confidentiality of high–level communications, without more, can sustain an absolute, unqualified Presidential privilege of immunity from judicial process under all circumstances.”726 The primary constitutional duty of the courts “to do justice in criminal prosecutions” was a critical counterbalance to the claim of presidential immunity and to accept the President’s argument would disturb the separation–of–powers function of achieving “a workable government” as well as “gravely impair the role of the courts under Art. III.”727
Present throughout the Watergate crisis, and unresolved by it, was the question of the amenability of the President to criminal prosecution prior to conviction upon impeachment.728 It was argued that the impeachment clause necessarily required indictment and trial in a criminal proceeding to follow a successful impeachment and that a President in any event was uniquely immune from indictment, and these arguments were advanced as one ground to deny enforcement of the subpoenas running to the President.729 Assertion of the same argument by Vice President Agnew was controverted by the Government, through the Solicitor General, but, as to the President, it was argued that for a number of constitutional [p.581]and practical reasons he was not subject to ordinary criminal process.730
Finally, most recently, the Court has definitively resolved one of the intertwined issues of presidential accountability. The President is absolutely immune in actions for civil damages for all acts within the “outer perimeter” of his official duties.731 The Court’s close decision was premised on the President’s “unique position in the constitutional scheme,” that is, it was derived from the Court’s inquiry of a “kind of ‘public policy’ analysis” of the “policies and principles that may be considered implicit in the nature of the President’s office in a system structured to achieve effective government under a constitutionally mandated separation of powers.”732 … Although the Court relied in part upon its previous practice of finding immunity for officers, such as judges, as to whom the Constitution is silent, although a long common–law history exists, and in part upon historical evidence, which it admitted was fragmentary and ambiguous,734 the Court’s principal focus was upon the fact that the President was distinguishable from all other executive officials. He is charged with a long list of “supervisory and policy responsibilities of utmost discretion and sensitivity,”735 and diversion of his energies by concerns with private lawsuits would “raise unique risks to the effective functioning of government.”736 …
Supplement: [P. 582, add to text following n.738:]
Unofficial Conduct.—In Clinton v. Jones,9 the Court, in a case of first impression, held that the President did not have qualified immunity from suit for conduct alleged to have taken place prior to his election to the Presidency, which would entitle him to delay of both the trial and discovery. The Court held that its precedents affording the President immunity from suit for his official conduct—primarily on the basis that he should be enabled to perform his duties effectively without fear that a particular decision might give rise to personal liability— were inapplicable in this kind of case. Moreover, the separation–of–powers doctrine did not require a stay of all private actions against the President. Separation of powers is preserved by guarding against the encroachment or aggrandizement of one of the coequal branches of the Government at the expense of another. However, a federal trial court tending to a civil suit in which the President is a party performs only its judicial function, not a function of another branch. No decision by a trial court could curtail the scope of the President’s powers. The trial court, the Supreme Court observed, had sufficient powers to accommodate the President’s schedule and his workload, so as not to impede the President’s performance of his duties. Finally, the Court stated its belief that allowing such suits to proceed would not generate a large volume of politically motivated harassing and frivolous litigation. Congress has the power, the Court advised, if it should think necessary to legislate, to afford the President protection.10 (CRS ANNOTATED CONSTITUTION: Article II — Table of Contents; From Cornel University Law School, Legal information Institute)
Sifting through the legalese I am assuming that means the POTUS cannot be prosecuted for a crime but can be subject to a civil suit as long as it does not interfere with his Executive Branch duties. After his term of Office has expired then he may be subject to criminal proceedings. This is the unofficial reason President Gerald Ford gave President Richard Milhous Nixon a full pardon from any crimes committed while in Office. A sitting President that breaks the law can receive the equivalent of a political indictment called impeachment in the House of Representatives. The Senate acts as the equivalent of a political jury with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court acting as Judge. A Senate conviction ONLY means a removal from Office. Then criminal proceedings can be executed judicially.
High Crimes and Misdemeanors
The U.S. Constitution provides impeachment as the method for removing the president, vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office. The impeachment process begins in the House of Representatives and follows these steps:
1. The House Judiciary Committee holds hearings and, if necessary, prepares articles of impeachment. These are the charges against the official.
2. If a majority of the committee votes to approve the articles, the whole House debates and votes on them.
3. If a majority of the House votes to impeach the official on any article, then the official must then stand trial in the Senate.
4. For the official to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict the official. Upon conviction, the official is automatically removed from office and, if the Senate so decides, may be forbidden from holding governmental office again.
The impeachment process is political in nature, not criminal. Congress has no power to impose criminal penalties on impeached officials. But criminal courts may try and punish officials if they have committed crimes.
The Constitution sets specific grounds for impeachment. They are “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” To be impeached and removed from office, the House and Senate must find that the official committed one of these acts.
The Constitution defines treason in Article 3, Section 3, Clause 1:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Constitution does not define bribery. It is a crime that has long existed in English and American common law. It takes place when a person gives an official money or gifts to influence the official’s behavior in office. For example, if defendant Smith pays federal Judge Jones $10,000 to find Smith not guilty, the crime of bribery has occurred.
What are “high crimes and misdemeanors”? On first hearing this phrase, many people probably think that it is just an 18th century way of saying “felonies and misdemeanors.” Felonies are major crimes and misdemeanors are lesser crimes. If this interpretation were correct, “high crimes and misdemeanors” would simply mean any crime. But this interpretation is mistaken.
The Origins of the Phrase
But the committee’s recommendation did not satisfy everyone. George Mason of Virginia proposed adding “maladministration.” He thought that treason and bribery did not cover all the harm that a president might do. He pointed to the English case of Warren Hastings, whose impeachment trial was then being heard in London. Hastings, the first Governor General of Bengal in India, was accused of corruption and treating the Indian people brutally.
Madison objected to “maladministration.” He thought this term was so vague that it would threaten the separation of powers. Congress could remove any president it disagreed with on grounds of “maladministration.” This would give Congress complete power over the executive.
Mason abandoned “maladministration” and proposed “high crimes and misdemeanors against the state.” The convention adopted Mason’s proposal, but dropped “against the state.” The final version, which appears in the Constitution, stated: “The president, vice-president, and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
The convention adopted “high crimes and misdemeanors” with little discussion. Most of the framers knew the phrase well. Since 1386, the English parliament had used “high crimes and misdemeanors” as one of the grounds to impeach officials of the crown. Officials accused of “high crimes and misdemeanors” were accused of offenses as varied as misappropriating government funds, appointing unfit subordinates, not prosecuting cases, not spending money allocated by Parliament, promoting themselves ahead of more deserving candidates, threatening a grand jury, disobeying an order from Parliament, arresting a man to keep him from running for Parliament, losing a ship by neglecting to moor it, helping “suppress petitions to the King to call a Parliament,” granting warrants without cause, and bribery. …
After the Constitutional Convention, the Constitution had to be ratified by the states. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote a series of essays, known as the Federalist Papers, urging support of the Constitution. In Federalist No. 65, Hamilton explained impeachment. He defined impeachable offenses as “those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

Finding a crime directly linked to a sitting POTUS is difficult for justice to be maintained. President Barack Hussein Obama has pushed the criminal envelope to the limits and appears near untouchable because of the blathering love of most of America’s media and the love of political power by the most Left Wing Democratic Party in American history. I am surprised the numerous “phony scandals” has not produced links to actual murder in the name of political power. Thank God so far, that extant of nefarious scandalous illegalities has not come up pertaining to President BHO.
The CCC email I referenced at the beginning of these thoughts exposes the fact that the Islamic terrorists that attacked Libyan Embassy annex in Benghazi had
acquired stolen “State Department-issued cell phones from our U.S. diplomatic facility”. The Islamic terrorists utilized these phones to coordinate their attack on the annex mission that resulted in the murders of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. The implication of the CCC email is that America’s Intelligence Community was listening to the Islamic attack coordination! This is another nail in the coffin of lies that exposes Obama and his Administration KNOWINGLY LYING to the American public just prior to the November 2012 election!
This is a ton of political evidence to bring Obama to an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives. BUT just like the Democrats in the Senate protected President Slick Willie Clinton from a Senate conviction, the same scenario would undoubtedly take place today in the Senate. EVEN if the GOP retakes the majority in the Senate there will be enough Democrats to ensure that a TWO-THIRDS majority would not be achieved to convict Obama and remove the most corrupt President from Office.
That leaves the only way for Obama to receive some justice for his criminal management of this Administration will be via the Civil Suit and/or criminal charges AFTER his term of Office ends in January 2017. AND there is a good chance Obama would escape that post-Presidential justice if a Democrat actually wins the 2016 election for President. Do you think someone like Hillary Clinton will allow civil or criminal discovery of Obama Administration law breaking to go on the public record? NO! A President Hillary would take a page out of the Republican playbook and give Obama a blanket full pardon preventing any kind of investigation from proceeding with the power of the independent Judicial Branch.
KNOWING these potential unjustified outcomes I say proceed with House impeachment proceedings at least after the 2014 election cycle to get something on the public record. Public revelations will make it more difficult for Hillary to become President and at the very least allow public opinion to force the Judicial Branch into action civilly or criminally.
New Benghazi Scandal Revelations
From: Office of CCC PAC

Fox News has a stunning new report that shows that the Benghazi terrorists stole the State Department-issued cell phones from our U.S. diplomatic facility that they had attacked – and they used the phones to coordinate their attack with fellow terrorists.
But the most shocking aspect of the new report is that American intelligence agencies were listening in to the calls – and KNEW instantly that the attack on our compound in Benghazi was a terrorist attack.
These stunning new reports are further proof that the Obama administration lied to us about the Benghazi attacks, and then tried to cover up the fact that it was indeed a terrorist attack, and not a political rally in response to a YouTube video.
Please, do not let those four Americans who lost their lives on that fateful night of September 11, 2012 be forgotten, swept under the rug by Democrat politicians like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama who don’t want the American people to know about the lies and cover ups surrounding that horrific terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.
Please review our TV ad below demanding that Barack Obama be held accountable for the Benghazi cover up, and if you want us to keep the pressure on the Obama administration for this scandal, make a contribution to our TV ad campaign – HERE.

Ever since the Benghazi terrorist attack the Obama administration, with significant backing from the liberal media, have attempted to hide the truth about what happened. To cover their failures in combating terrorism, they told lies saying it was not a preplanned terrorist attack, even when they knew that to be an absolute falsehood.
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and countless members of the Obama administration have lied, concealed and attempted to cover up not only the truth but their failures. As has been his pattern of appeasement in the face of Islamic terrorism, Obama himself would not even call this an act of terrorism.
Obama’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, said it didn’t matter whether Benghazi was a terrorist attack or whether she and the Obama administration had lied about it.
The Obama administration has dishonored those who lost their lives on that fateful night of September 11, 2012 and now they say it doesn’t matter because it happened “a long time ago.”
It’s time to hold the Obama administration accountable for their misdeeds.
We know the media will try to whitewash the seriousness of this issue. We need to get the truth out as soon as possible, so please make a contribution to our TV ad campaign that holds Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton accountable – CONTRIBUTE HERE.

Counterjihad writers and pundits connected to Europe have been trying to get Europeans to wake-up for about a decade about the dangers that Islamic culture threatening Western culture as it has evolved leaning upon voters having the ability to influence politics.
Western culture began a slant toward a democratic-socialist paradigm emphasizing diverse multiculturalism in the days after WWII. Honestly the diverse multicultural paradigm probably made great sense to the post WWII Europe. After all, Adolf Hitler tried to impose a singular culture of a German Master race on a Europe that was quite multilingual. What better way to head of potential dominating European leader to yet once again make an effort to conquer all Europe than to promote multicultural acceptance among Europeans. I have no doubts that the evolving European Union is a part of a process to bind all Europeans regardless of their linguistic backgrounds to collectively join each other as a united political people by democratic consensus. For such a consensus to take root a common thread must take root among the multiple lingual groups of Europe. It appears to me that consensus solidified via a paradigm Europeans could agree upon. The collective paradigm that has won over European voters over the years was an egalitarian Socialist-Egalitarianism in which people became connected to generous governments that would take care of a European’s social needs such as medicine, employment, welfare, and so on. The thing about this paradigm is that someone had to pay for it.
America’s willingness to build Europe back after WWII as a geopolitical strategy to gain a partner to combat the Soviet-Communist agenda of a Marxist Empire ruled from Moscow. The American commitment to take on the initial bankrolling of strategic military alliances for European defense freed money up to be invested into the Socialist-Egalitarian top-down general welfare of European citizens. Then the European governments taxed their citizens to the hilt. Europeans did not care, that is how much the democratic socialist paradigm is still attractive to European voters.
Unfortunately for Europe there was a horrible side-affect to embracing multicultural diversity as a social egalitarian paradigm. Non-European immigrants began to flow into Europe even as many European governments have united under a limited confederated union that is the European Union. That union of nations has brought about economic advantages even in developing a single monetary unit that is known as Euros. For many European nations the Euro became the singular currency replacing traditional national currencies. The horrible side-affect was the flow of Islamic people from Africa and the Middle East that were and are intolerant of the European culture. Multicultural diversity acceptance enabled Muslims to hold on to many of their Islamic concepts which are diametrically opposed to concepts of Religious Freedom outside of Islam and opposed to concepts of Free Speech that promotes another religion or ideology that are deemed insulting to Islam.
Under the imperative of cultural acceptance to find a common ground was and is a non-starter among religious Muslims. Islamic writings considered holy do not say nice things about non-Muslims. That means secular-minded Europeans (most Europeans have abandoned the practice of their Christian religious heritage) will insult Muslims with lifestyles that are blatantly immoral in Islam. Americans are still Christian enough there are immoral practices that should be frowned upon; e.g. adultery, rape, theft, murder, fornication (sex without marriage) and more. The multicultural paradigm has infected American culture enough that immoral acts such as adultery, fornication, pornography, homosexual lifestyles and so on are not considered heinous anymore. In Islam these kinds of immoral practices are worthy of death.
Socialist-minded European elites decided to look the other way to the intolerance of Islam probably believing they were doing Muslim immigrants a multicultural favor by enabling a better economic life and freedom from dictatorships prevalent among Africa and the Middle East. Most Muslims in Europe have eschewed any form of assimilation into their host nations. Here we are in the 21st century and immigrants are still flowing into Europe coupled now with earlier Muslim immigrants producing second and third generation religious Muslims that adhere to the intolerant nature of Islam.
Only now some Europeans are waking up that Islam and European culture are not compatible. The real risk in the minds of European elites is that pre-WWII Europeans began to blame a culture they deemed foreign to their Euro-Christian heritage. As a horrible economic depression began to hit Europe (like it did in America), those minority of Europeans began to look for a scapegoat to their ill fortunes being experienced during European depression. Incidentally the parts of Europe most affected to by depression were the losers of WWI who were punished to the hilt with war reparations. The principle nation of that punishment was Germany. Germans became desperate economically. People like Adolf Hitler became popular among Germans because the Jew-hatred spouted by Nazis seemed to offer an explanation to many for the economic pain people were feeling. Hitler’s antisemitism really infected Germany but it also had an effect on Europeans and Americans. If you got to look for a scapegoat the Jews always fit the bill historically in Europe and by extension even to the relatively new American republic. You might be surprised to know that one of change-makers in American lifestyle in Henry Ford was a huge antisemite and at least showed an early affection for Nazism at least until it became apparent Hitler’s bottom line would affect the Ford Motor Company’s bottom line.
European elites are facing a similar dilemma with Muslims in Europe. As Europeans begin to wake-up about Islamic intolerance Europeans are beginning to get fed up with Muslims are establishing Muslim-Only zones in many major European cities and are committing criminal acts often associated with Islamic intolerance.
The dilemma for European elites is that they are covering-up Muslim crimes hoping that anti-Muslim retribution will not emerge in a violent way that Jews experienced in Pre-WWII Europe. The problem that European elites should regard is Jewish citizens in the various European nations before WWI were pretty much assimilated into European culture. European Jews were more secular than they were observant. That is not the case for Muslims in Europe today. The intolerance of Islamic theo-political religion has led to a refusal of assimilation by the majority of Muslims. For pre-WWII European Jews assimilation was the norm and strict religious observance was a small minority. AND the observant religious Jews had absolutely NO desire to force non-Jews to convert to Judaism in pre-WWII or even now for that matter. The imperative of Islam according to their holy writings and religious commentators has been to offer the non-Muslim peaceful conversion, absolute submission to Islamic Supremacy or face death for insulting Islam.
TODAY one can see that is a problem in Europe. If American Dem Party Leftists continue to promote European concepts of multicultural diversity, the same problem will be here among us. Muslim conclaves are already emerging in the USA in which Christians utilizing their Constitutional right of Religious Freedom and Free Speech to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ are experiencing violence or even jail (Dearborn, MI).
Hopefully American voters will wake-up to the Islamic incompatibility to America’s Constitution and take a stand against giving Muslims special rights forcing Americans to give up their First Amendment. The problem Americans already face is the Religious Freedom is such a passionate issue in America that most take the stand that, “We disagree with Islam but those folks have the Constitutional right to freely practice their faith.”
Currently America is not facing a multicultural problem as in Europe. America’s future problem with Islam will be the dilemma between Religious Freedom being constitutionally sacrosanct and observant Islam being systemically anti-U.S. Constitution. How do we address that dilemma?

Gang Raping, “I Love Al-Qaeda” and Who Is Advancing Islam?
A Month of Islam in Europe: April 2014

The American Embassy in Prague is financing a new project aimed at promoting Islam in public elementary and secondary schools across the Czech Republic.
The new law removes the requirement that there must be a special reason to sue for defamation or insult. Swedish thought police will be able to prosecute anyone who expresses an opinion about Muslim immigration and much else if that opinion is deemed to be defamation or slander. The Swedish government is also spending 60 million krona ($9 million) to boost voter turnout in Muslim neighborhoods.
“The influx of immigrants is reaching biblical proportions. Italy is fighting a losing battle.” — Admiral Giuseppe De Giorgi, Head of the Italian Navy
In Austria, police say they believe that two teenage girls who vanished from their homes in the capital of Vienna on April 10 may be in Turkey, and that whoever helped them get there is using them as pin-up girls to boost recruitment efforts for the “holy war” in Syria.
Friends of Samra Kesinovic, 16, and Sabina Selimovic, 15, said the girls had become radicalized after attending a local mosque run by a Salafist preacher, Ebu Tejma, and learning about the duty of every Muslim to participate in jihad. The girls were expelled from school after inscribing “I Love Al-Qaeda” on tables and walls.
But the girls’ parents—originally Bosnian refugees who settled in Austria after the ethnic conflicts of the 1990s—say that messages and photographs posted on social media networks which claim that the girls are on the front line and fighting with their new husbands are fake.
In a possible break in the case, Austrian police say they traced a phone call Samra made to her sister in late April to a landline based in Turkey. The search for the girls continues.
At least 100 Austrian citizens or residents have participated in the fighting in Syria, according to Austrian media. Approximately 40 of them are currently on the front lines, 44 have already returned to Austria and 19 have been killed in action.
Also in April, the most senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood living in exile in Britain, Ibrahim Munir, denied claims that the group was moving its international headquarters from London to the Austrian city of Graz. The Daily Mail, a British newspaper, reported on April 12 that the Muslim Brotherhood was preparing to move its headquarters to Austria in an “apparent attempt to avoid an inquiry into its activities set up by the Prime Minister.”
The group was expelled from Egypt after a counter-revolution there in July 2013, and recently opened a new headquarters above a kebab shop in London. On April 1, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities in Britain.
A full summary of Islam in Britain during the month of April can be found here.
In the Czech Republic, police on April 25 raided the headquarters of Prague’s Islamic Foundation in the center of the capital and a mosque on the outskirts of the city. Police arrested 20 people, including the Czech translator and publisher of a book about Islamic theology that security officials said promotes hate speech and incites hatred toward Jews.
The book—”The Fundamentals of Tawheed” [Islamic monotheism] by Bilal Philips, a Jamaican-born, Qatar-based Muslim extremist who has been banned from entering Britain and Germany—was being used, police said, to spread Salafist ideology in the Czech Republic.
Also in April, it emerged that the American embassy in Prague is financing a new project aimed at promoting Islam in public elementary and secondary schools across the Czech Republic.
In Denmark, police in Copenhagen on April 25 said the man they believe tried to assassinate the Danish journalist Lars Hedegaard in February 2013 was arrested in Istanbul’s Atatürk airport as he tried to enter Turkey on a false passport. The man, identified only by the initials B.H., is awaiting extradition—a process that could take three months—in a high-security prison in the city’s Maltepe district.
Danish police say the suspect is a 26-year-old Danish citizen of Lebanese—possibly Palestinian—origin. At the time of his arrest, he was in possession of a fake passport. He left Denmark on the same day of the assassination attempt, police said, and has been traveling between Syria, Lebanon and Turkey ever since.
In Finland, the Parliament’s Constitutional Law Committee on April 4 ruled that the long-standing tradition of singing a summer hymn known as the “Suvivirsi” at end-of-school ceremonies can continue. In March, Deputy Chancellor of Justice Mikko Puumalainen had called on the Board of Education to look into the matter because the song has Christian overtones and could be offensive to the country’s growing Muslim community.
“It’s curious that the minority can so strongly influence the activities of the majority,” said Education Chancellor Pekka Iivonen. “Laws concerning religious freedom work both ways: in addition to having the right not practice religion, we also have the right to practice religion in Finland, where the majority of people belong to the Lutheran church.”
In France, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve on April 23 presented a new anti-radicalization plan aimed at preventing French citizens or residents from waging jihad in Syria and other Muslim conflict zones. The strategy includes more than 20 measures aimed not only at preventing French citizens from joining the war in Syria, but also at combatting the radicalization of young French Muslims during the earliest stages of indoctrination.
On April 22, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told RTL Radio that nearly 500 French citizens or residents are believed to have joined the fighting in Syria. “This is a very big subject,” Fabius said. “Now more and more young people are going [to Syria] … Our plan is to tackle this upstream [at the source] and all the way downstream. We will identify young people caught on this tragic path. We will monitor this online, and then we must stop them from crossing the Syrian border, and monitor their return and reintegration.”
Some believe the plan is a political ploy by French President François Hollande aimed at blunting the rising popularity of the anti-immigration National Front party, which captured a record number of city council seats and mayorships in local elections in March.
National Front party leader Marine Le Pen told RTL Radio that the government’s plan to fight French jihadists is cosmetic. “It does not attack the root of the problem—the speech in some mosques that are genuine calls to jihad,” she said. “Nor does the plan attack recruiters and funding from foreign countries known to support terrorist fundamentalism, such as Qatar.”
Le Pen also said it might be necessary to create a new law on mercenaries that would 1) prohibit those who have French nationality from engaging in fighting abroad; and 2) revoke French nationality from individuals convicted of participating in this type of fighting.
A confidential intelligence document leaked to the French newspaper Le Figaro says a form of Muslim ghettoization is gaining ground within the French school system. The report says that Muslim students are effectively establishing an Islamic parallel society completely cut off from non-Muslim students.
The 15-page document, dated November 28, 2013, includes 70 examples—headscarves in school playgrounds, halal meals in cafeterias, chronic absenteeism during Muslim religious festivals, clandestine prayers in gyms or hallways—of the Islamizing trend in schools throughout France.
The document says that Muslims are engaged in a “war of attrition” aimed at “destabilizing the teaching staff.” It adds that Muslim fundamentalists are circumventing the law that bans religious symbols in schools, and that self-proclaimed “young guardians of orthodoxy” in many schools are exerting pressure on Muslim girls.
“During the Muslim holidays, especially during the Eid-el-Kebir [Eid el-Adha], classes are abandoned by students,” with absenteeism bordering 90% in certain parts of Nîmes and Toulouse. A high school principal in a northern district of Marseille said that some of his pupils pray with such zeal that their foreheads bear bruises.
In Évry, a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, police arrested four Muslim boys (three Turkish brothers between the ages of 13 and 15, and one 17-year-old from Morocco) for gang raping an 18-year-old woman as she left the main train station. During police questioning, the minors said they attacked the woman simply because she was French and “the French are all sons of whores.”
The boys were jailed for rape and—unusually in France—reverse racism. Three of the minors have previously been jailed for rape and robbery, but only six months ago they were released early as part of a government plan to go easy on minors.
One French commentator asks: “Where did their hatred come from? The hatred that drove them to engage in unspeakable acts on a young girl, barely older than themselves, who symbolized their host country? What will I report? Unemployment? Poverty? Inequality?”
In Paris, the 31st congress of the Union of Islamic Organizations in France (UOIF) was turned into a platform for Muslim anti-Semitism when keynote speaker Hani Ramadan—a prominent Muslim leader from Geneva—blamed Jews and Zionism for a litany of maladies in France, Iraq, Rwanda, Syria and Central Africa. “All the evil in the world originates from the Jews who have only one thing in mind, realizing the dream of Greater Israel,” the French daily Le Figaro quoted him as saying.
Ramadan said the media and politics are controlled by Zionists. “In the United States, no one can be elected president without having to kowtow to AIPAC,” he said. “It is the same in France, where no one can be elected without the approval of the CRIF [an umbrella group of French Jewish organizations], which in fact leads in the shadows. Against these international schemes of the Zionist power there is only one rampart: Islam.”
Hani Ramadan is the director of the Islamic Center of Geneva and is a brother of Tariq Ramadan, a Swiss professor banned from entering the United States. The UOIF congress, held from April 18-21 this year, is one of France’s largest and most prominent Islamic events.
In Germany, the interior ministry on April 8 said it had outlawed the charity “Waisenkinderprojekt Libanon” [Orphan Project Lebanon] for allegedly raising millions of euros for Hezbollah. The group, based in the city of Essen, collected €3.3 million ($4.6 million) in donations between 2007 and 2013 for the Lebanese Shahid [Martyrs] Foundation, an “integral” part of Hezbollah. The interior ministry said the funds were used to recruit fighters “to combat Israel, also with terrorist measures” and to compensate the families of suicide bombers.
Also in April, it was reported that the 39-year-old German rapper Deso Dogg (born Denis Cuspert), operating under the alias “Abu Talha Al-Almani” [Abu Talha the German], was killed on April 20 as a result of infighting among jihadi groups battling in Syria.
Deso Dogg—the son of a Ghanaian father and German mother, and raised by an American stepfather—abandoned his rapping career and converted to hardline Salafism in 2010 after nearly being killed in a car crash. Soon after his conversion, he began recording nasheeds [traditional Islamic devotional music] in German, praising Osama Bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar. Deso Dogg’s nasheeds inspired Arid Uka, an Albanian-German Islamist, who killed two U.S. airmen and seriously wounded two others at the Frankfurt airport in March 2011.
After Deso Dogg became a cult figure for Salafists in Europe, German counter-terrorism authorities, concerned about his potential to serve as a recruitment tool for radical Islamic groups, began monitoring his activities.
Despite being monitored, Deso Dogg crossed into Syria undetected in 2013, and gave his oath of allegiance to the jihadist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ISIS] in early 2014. According to many media sources, he was reportedly killed by a rival al-Nusra suicide bomber in eastern Syria. Reports of his death, however, have not been independently confirmed, and ISIS fighters interviewed by the German newspaper Die Welt have denied he is dead.
A new survey published on April 29 shows that only half of the German population believes that Islam is a part of German culture and society. The Integration Barometer 2014, produced by the Expert Council of German Foundations on Integration and Migration, found that 44% of those with an immigrant background and 53% without a migration background rejected the statement: “Islam is part of Germany.” About half of the respondents, both with and without a migration background, nevertheless advocated religious instruction in schools. About two-thirds believe Islamic theology should be offered at universities.
The situation is different when it comes to making exceptions for individual Muslims, such as exemptions from sports or swimming lessons because of religious sensitivities. A clear majority, 76% of those without a migration background, viewed such special privileges in a negative light. In addition, 63% of those without a migration background rejected the right of Muslim teachers to wear headscarves in class. “The majority of respondents obviously believe that equality and religious neutrality are more important than the granting of special treatment on religious grounds,” the study concludes.
On April 22, the Bavarian Administrative Court in Munich ruled that an 18-year-old Muslim student does not have the constitutional right to wear a face-covering niqab in class at her state-run vocational college. The court said that her school had done nothing illegal in asking her to remove the veil, and that this prohibition did not infringe on her freedom of religious worship.
The court also said that the veil acted as a barrier for non-verbal communication. “Open communication during teaching is based not only on the spoken word, but also on non-verbal elements such as facial expressions, gestures and other body language,” the court said.
Meanwhile, a German-Turkish candidate for city council elections in the town of Neuss near Düsseldorf provoked the ire of many Germans when he added the Islamic crescent-moon to the logo of his party, the center-right Christian Democratic Union. The Islamized logo appeared on promotional campaign products such as pens, stickers and 4,000 bags.
Irritated CDU officials ordered Yasar Calik, 37, to cease and desist. He responded by accusing them of intolerance. Calik said many Turks are skeptical of the CDU and that he wants Muslims to know they can vote for the party, which some have dubbed the “Islamic Democratic Union.”
In Greece, controversial plans to build a taxpayer-funded mega-mosque in Athens have been delayed once again after a group of concerned citizens filed an appeal to block the €950,000 ($1.3 million) project. The government had agreed in November 2013 to build a mosque at the site of a former naval base in Votanikos, near central Athens.
Aris Spiliotopoulos, a candidate for the mayor of Athens for the center-right New Democracy party, called for a referendum on the construction of the mosque. In an April 16 interview with Skai TV, Spiliotopoulos, a former education and tourism minister, criticized plans to build a Muslim place of worship in the heart of Athens, saying that the capital does not need “another pole for illegal immigration” or “third-world tents under the sacred rock of the Acropolis.” Votanikos is located 3km from the Acropolis. Spiliotopoulos said: “I don’t want the mosque next to the Parthenon.”
The Friendship, Equality and Peace Party, purportedly representing Greek Muslims in region of Thrace, described Spiliotopoulos’ referendum proposals as an “insult to the hundreds of thousands of Muslims living in Athens, the only capital in the European Union without a mosque.” The group added:
“The construction of a mosque has been delayed for strange reasons for many years, which has opened a deep wound in terms of freedom of religion. Now, proposing a referendum for a place of worship has created great disappointment. We expect politicians to leave such a mentality, to avoid putting our country Greece in a difficult position within the international arena.”
Meanwhile, Muslim vandals are being blamed for a spate of attacks against Greek Orthodox churches on the island of Crete. Anti-Christian slogans written in Arabic were discovered on the walls of at least three churches.
In Italy, Home Secretary Angelino Alfano on April 4 warned that his country is facing a catastrophic wave of immigration from the Muslim world. “According to our information between 300,000 and 600,000 people are on the other side of the Mediterranean on the North African coastline, waiting to cross sooner or later,” he said at a conference on immigration in Palermo, Sicily.
In the first three months of 2014, more than 11,000 immigrants have landed in Italy, a seven-fold increase on 2013, with the high season for crossings about to begin as the weather improves. “The landings are non-stop and the emergency is increasingly glaring,” Alfano said.
On April 4, an official statement from the Italian Ministry of Health declared “the activation of appropriate measures of surveillance at all international access points to Italy” due to fears that at least 40 immigrants from Africa were infected with the Ebola virus.
The head of the Italian Navy, Admiral Giuseppe De Giorgi, said the influx of migrants is reaching “biblical proportions” and that “Italy is fighting a losing battle.”
Justice Minister Andrea Orlando on April 1 signed an agreement with his Moroccan counterpart to have Moroccan convicts sent back home. The move is aimed at tackling chronic overcrowding in Italian prisons. The agreement will affect Moroccans who have been convicted in Italy and sentenced to one or more years in prison, according to a statement released by the Justice Ministry. The new plan will allow convicts to serve out the rest of their sentences in Morocco while receiving “social reintegration” there, where “they have social and family ties.” There are some 4,000 Moroccan prisoners in Italian prisons.
In the Netherlands, Interior Minister Ronald Plasterk and Rob Bertholee, the head of the Dutch intelligence agency AIVD, on April 23 presented the AIVD annual report for 2013. The report says that more than 100 Dutch citizens or residents travelled to Syria in 2013 with the intention of taking part in jihadist activities there.
The vast majority of Dutch jihadists joined one of two groups: the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) or Jabhat al-Nusra (JaN). A relatively small proportion of jihadists (just over 20) returned home during the course of the year. The AIVD believes that at least ten men from the Netherlands were killed in Syria in 2013, including two Dutch jihadists who took their own lives in suicide attacks.
The report warns:
“The participation of foreign jihadists in the conflict in Syria has contributed to its escalation. Their experiences there, and the contacts they establish with international networks, mean that they may well pose a threat to national security if and when they return home. For the jihadist groups active in Syria, the presence of European fighters represents an excellent opportunity to recruit individuals familiar with our region to commit acts of terrorism here. In addition, returnees could exploit their status as veterans to radicalize others in the Netherlands.
“As well as potentially posing a direct threat, returnees from Syria might also have a radicalizing and mobilizing effect upon fellow Muslims. In the Netherlands, they could act as the catalyst pushing some young people already attracted by a radical strand of Islam into militant activism. That could strengthen local radical groups and spread their message to a wider audience.”
Meanwhile, police said they had arrested a 35-year-old Dutch-Turkish national named Aydin Coban in the case of a Canadian teenager who was blackmailed after exposing herself in front of a webcam. The 15-year-old girl, Amanda Todd, later committed suicide after detailing her harassment on a YouTube video watched by millions around the world. Dutch prosecutors said the man is suspected of blackmailing girls in Britain, the Netherlands and the United States. Canadian police said they would seek extradition.
The number of people requesting asylum in the Netherlands rose by more than 4,000 in 2013 to 17,190, the immigration service said on April 14. Somalia topped the list with just over 3,000 requests, followed by Syria (2,670) and Iraq (1,090).
In Norway, the education ministry approved a controversial plan to launch the country’s first Muslim-only primary school in Oslo. The school will be run by the Association of Muslim Mothers, which wants to teach its pupils Arabic and Islamic values as well as the standard subjects on the curriculum. A standard course on Religion, Philosophy and Ethics would be replaced by Islam, Religion and Philosophy.
The school aims to have 200 students, and is expected to look for premises in the east side of Oslo, home to many immigrants. Both Norway’s opposition Labour Party and the anti-immigrant Progress Party, which is part of the government coalition, have voiced opposition to the plan.
On April 28, envoys from Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries accused the Norwegian government of doing too little to protect its Muslim minority, and called for all criticism of Islam to be made illegal. The accusations against Norway were made in Geneva during a session of the United Nations Universal Periodic Review, which occurs every four years. Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende told Norway’s NTB newswire: “It is a paradox that countries which do not support fundamental human rights have influence on the council, but that is the United Nations.”
In Spain, a large Muslim umbrella group called the Union of Islamic Communities in Spain [UCIDE] sent letters to education officials in all of the country’s 17 regions asking for precise data on the number of students in primary and secondary public schools who have applied for Islamic religious training.
UCIDE is lobbying the Spanish government to expand the teaching of Islam in the public school system, and is said to be compiling the data to back up its claim that there are not enough Islam teachers to keep up with the growing demand.
On April 30, police in Almería, a port city in southern Spain, arrested a French-Algerian jihadist who was returning to Europe from combat in Syria. Abdelmalek Tanem, 25, was a member of the al-Qaeda-linked group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ISIS], from October 2013 to January 2014, according to a statement issued by the Spanish Interior Ministry.
“During this period, Tanem is believed to have carried out the work of ‘combatant’ and as a ‘facilitator’ on the Turkish-Syrian border in order to make it possible for other European citizens to be integrated into this jihadist group,” the statement says. Tanem is the second returning jihadist who has been arrested by Spanish police; the first was Mohamed Sadik Abdeluahid in Ceuta, in January.
On April 29, the Spanish government announced that it would allocate €2.1 million ($2.9 million) to try to stem illegal border crossings in Ceuta and Melilla, two Spanish exclaves in North Africa. More than 1,000 African migrants attempted to reach Spain in April during nearly daily attempts to storm and scale the six-meter (20-foot) triple-layer fence separating Melilla from Morocco.
In Sweden, the parliament on April 10 approved a new law that will make it easier for public prosecutors to take criminal action against Swedes who criticize immigrants or government officials online. The new law removes the requirement that there must be a special reason to prosecute for defamation or insult. Critics say the new law, which takes effect on January 1, 2015, is an assault on the exercise of free speech: Swedish thought police will be able to prosecute anyone who expresses an opinion about Muslim immigration and much else if that opinion is deemed to be defamation or slander.
The measure has been pushed by Swedish parliamentarian Andreas Norlén, who in an unchallenged debate on the issue in parliament, said: “I do not think it takes very many prosecutions before a signal is transmitted in the community that the Internet is not a lawless country: the sheriff is back in town.”
The Swedish government is also spending 60 million krona ($9 million) to boost voter turnout in Muslim neighborhoods—such as the Rinkeby district in Stockholm, the Rosengård district in Malmö, and the Rymdtorget and Bergsjön districts in Gothenburg—ahead of European elections in May.
Separately, the government was forced to drop a controversial plan to lower the tax rates in Muslim neighborhoods after the European Commission said that allowing immigrants to pay lower taxes than Swedes would violate EU rules on state aid.
According to the latest data from Eurostat, Sweden is the EU country that receives the most asylum seekers from developing countries relative to their population. Most of the asylum seekers in 2013 were from Afghanistan, Kosovo, Pakistan and Syria.
At the same time, more than 50,000 native Swedes fled the country in 2013, according to new data from Statistics Sweden (SCB). This is the highest figure since the peak years of emigration to North America in the 1880s. By contrast, immigration from the developing world to Sweden reached its highest level ever in 2013, with nearly 115,800 immigrants, according to the SCB.
On April 5, it emerged that a Swedish national of Somali origin was arrested in Kenya on suspicion of trying to recruit young men for the Islamic terrorist group, Al-Shabaab. Some 30 Swedish nationals have traveled to Somalia to join Islamic militant groups, according to the Swedish intelligence agency Säpo.
In Switzerland, the University of Fribourg will host the country’s first training center for imams. The center will provide courses for imams on Swiss culture and society, courses for social workers and health professionals on accommodating the Muslim community and, ultimately, a training program for new imams. The objective is to produce locally-trained imams to join the ranks of the country’s 150 imams, all of whom were schooled abroad.
The original idea for the project came from a national research program called “Religious Groups, State and Society,” which found that most of the imams and teachers of Islam did not speak Swiss national languages and did not know Swiss society, culture and laws.

Numerous people in the blog world and even my own family have labeled me a bigoted homophobe and Islamophobe propagator of hate-speech because of my agreement with the Biblical moral standards and the New Testament message that Jesus Christ is the only way to God. I am definitely not the perfect Christian by Biblical standards. I mess up way more than I should. BUT, I am quick to repent to turn myself around with conviction. As a Christian the most prominent reason I can offer ‘messing up’ is that I do not meditate on the Word of God enough and neither do I commune with God in prayer as often as I should. I find when I am lacking in those two qualities I tend to gravitate off the narrow road into a ditch. God have mercy on me in Jesus’ Name.
Yeah … That is about as much holy groveling that a human will hear or read from me so let’s move on.
There is absolutely no doubt that homosexuality is clearly morally reprehensible to God Almighty. It is only in the moral dilution of secular-minded Leftists that the Bible is pronounced an archaic book with some good ideas and some outdated modes of thinking not of the modern age of humanity. And “Progressive” Christians seem to align themselves with secular Leftists in which the Scriptures of the Bible are cherry-picked as applicable to modernity and none of the Bible is God-inspired but rather the sole work of human hands and minds. There might be degrees of agreement or absolute agreement with me when I say the secularist stand is a denial of God and of Christ Jesus the Risen Savior. AND that the “Progressive” Christian mentality is similar in which some of those Church theologians doubt that Christ arose in bodily form from the grave. Ergo the accusation of bigoted homophobia is the same as calling the Creator of all that exists as bigoted. Nope! I will never go there.
Then I absolutely believe that Jesus Christ is the only path to God by the Redemptive act of offering the Lord’s own Blood as a Redemptive price enabling each individual human of choosing life in Christ or choosing death (i.e. the second death) to eventually join Satan in the lake of fire eternally separated from God. Since Jesus as Crucified, Buried and Arisen Bodily in Resurrection is the only way to God by Faith through Grace I reject all other religions that teach something different. I don’t care if it is Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism and so on. I also reject sects that are a spinoff from Christianity but in some way or another reject Christ’s Death, Burial and Resurrection and that as the Son of God is co-equal as God along with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Three Persons in ONE God is Biblical. Thus that leaves out Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses and other cult deviations from the basics of orthodox Christianity. On a personal level I’m on board with the Protestants that still respect the Bible, Roman Catholicism, and various Eastern Orthodox Church variations that do not deny the Godhood of Jesus Christ. In my book if a Believer has faith in the Christian basics I can live with differences in dogma. Even if my faith beyond the Christian basics is unacceptable to some of the Protestants, Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox variations.
Historians have classified three religions as being derived from the Abrahamic Covenant because the Patriarch Abraham holds a prominent starting place for those three religions. If you are unaware of those three religions in historical order are Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Historically there has been an element of disdain between all three religions. I am going to briefly talk about these three religions from my Christian perspective.
The Old Testament is basically the Tanakh of Judaism. The Tanakh is divided into the Torah or the Law (Christians call it the Pentateuch or Books of Moses), the Nevi’im (Christians call the Prophets, but includes Joshua, Judges, 1 & 2 Samuel and 1 & 2 Kings) and Ketuvim (which roughly corresponds to Old Testament Wisdom books e.g. Psalms, but also include Daniel, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ruth, Ezra-Nehemiah, Lamentations, Song of Songs and Esther). For the Jews the Torah is the preeminent Word of God.
I’m not going to pretend that I know the theology of Judaism in any kind of detail. From the Christian perspective, the Old Testament is the scarlet thread (royal bloodline) that points to Jesus Christ as the promised Savior from Adam’s sin of rejecting God at the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The New Testament portrays the Jewish leadership during Jesus’ birth as a human that are also the prime movers of Jesus’ death. And then the Jewish leadership is shown as trying to stamp out the influence of the Apostles in the spread of Christianity in which Saul of Tarsus is mentioned as persecutor-in-chief. Jesus appeared in a vision of stunning light to Saul and transformed him into a Believer and thus became Paul the Apostle to the Gentiles and the God-inspired writer of most of the New Testament.
As Christianity became the State Religion of the Roman Empire then the hostility was reversed. Christians became more numerous than Jews with the infusion of non-Jews into the Christian faith. The Gentile dominated Christian clergy began to vilify Jews as Christ-killers. THIS COUNTER-PERSECUTION IS ONE OF THE MOST HEINOUS SINS OF EARLY CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP!
Among both Roman Catholics and the eventual Eastern Orthodox Christians Antisemitism became embedded among Christians in the same way that the Jewish leaders before the Romans compelled Diaspora of Jews persecuted Christians. Christians persecuting Jews became so much more wicked than the Jewish persecution of Christians in pre-Diaspora Judea. The Roman Empire was huge. Christians became so much more numerous than the Jews of Judea had ever become. Forced conversions, forced deportations and/or ethnic cleansing became the plight of the Jews in the Roman Empire and later Christian Europe and what was left of Christianity under Byzantine rule until Islamic conquest. Christ-killer antisemitism was so embedded in Christianity that Protestantism that emerged from the Reformation initiated by Martin Luther was still present. Indeed, as famous as Martin Luther was for standing up to Roman Catholic theological abuses he was also a rabid antisemite.
A closer reading of the Old and New Testament should have brought at the very least a reverence for Jews from among Christians. The Old Testament pointing toward Jesus as the Deliverer first to Jews and even after Jewish leadership rejection, Jesus is pointed to as the restorer of David’s Kingdom among the Jewish faithful. Who knows? Perhaps a better treatment of the Jews may have hastened the return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign as the Messiah-King already. Christ’s return would have flocked Jews to finally believe that He is the Risen Savior. Even the Apostles had a problem believing the Resurrection of Christ until the Lord revealed Himself to them. When Christ returns there still will be some Jewish rejection of Jesus; however the Bible records that there are also nations with a Christian heritage in which people will believe a supernatural acting Antichrist above Christ Jesus as representative of God’s Kingdom on Earth. So even though there is good reason for Jewish distrust of the motives of Christian Evangelism I am a Christian Zionist in full support of Israel. I’ll let King Jesus handle the belief factor among Jews in the same way He did with the Apostles right after the Resurrection.
This is my view that connects Jews and Christians today. It is my belief the Bible shows this in the Bible.
Historians also classify Islam as being one of the great Abrahamic Religions. In a historical sense there is some validity to this classification of Islam. Islam’s prophet Mohammed looks back to Abraham as one of Islam’s great prophets. In a Biblical sense there is no possible way Islam has a valid connection to Judaism or to Christianity.
The so-called valid collected recordings of Mohammed in the Quran totally warps the message of the Old and New Testament. Mohammed molded his Islam by twisting the Bible to be applicable to the trade and raiding nature of Arabs of today’s Arabic Peninsula. Mohammed had to find a way to connect his Allah with what the Arabs already believed and mix reworked Biblical stories to provide an eternal nature of Islam in Earth’s history. In Mohammed’s early trading days he undoubtedly heard dialogue from Jews and Christians that had migrated to the Arabian Peninsula or were part of the Arab trading routes. The Arab tribes of Mohammed’s day actually had tribal families that were Jews of the Diaspora. Mohammed thought an eclectic message that merged Arabic belief systems with Jewish and Christian theology would inspire Jews and Christians to join him as much as Arabs. Unfortunately for Mohammed Jewish Rabbis and Christian clergy were educated enough in their faith to recognize Mohammed’s version of Biblical history was totally revised to fit the thinking of the majority Arab group he lived and grew up among.
Jews and Christians rejected Mohammed’s message as a message of false prophecy.
After Jewish and Christian rejection of Mohammed’s message I find it amazing how the Allah preached in Mecca became hostile to Jews and Christians when preached from Medina. Medina is the city Mohammed fled to after Meccan leaders grew weary of the anti-polytheistic message and pro-monotheistic message that he hoped would persuade Jews in particular who were quite numerous on the Arabian Peninsula. By a good amount of subterfuge and a little military skill that enriched his followers from raiding parties, Mohammed eventually became the supreme leader of Medina. With a military base Mohammed proceeded to conquer the Arabian Peninsula with a convert, submit or die paradigm. Any resistance was viewed as not submitting which led to the ethnic cleansing of Jews in the Arabian Peninsula.
The Christians of the Byzantine Empire (the old eastern half of the Roman Empire) became a target for enrichment raids which turned into wealth building via conquest. Conquered Christians soon learned that Islam denies that Christ died on the Cross or that the Lord was Resurrected. For that matter Islam rejects Jesus’ Divine nature altogether but has the hutzpah to name the Jesus of the Bible as one of a long line of Muslim prophets of which Mohammed was to be the last.
I suspect Jewish rejection of Islam has a lot to do with the Quran making Ishmael who was the son of Abraham and Hagar the principle heir of Abraham. The Bible makes it clear that Isaac, the son of Abraham and Sarah, was the child of Promise that would lead to the creation of the nation of Israel (12 sons of Jacob) and for Christians the bloodline on the human side leading to Jesus.
The Islamic denial of Christ as the Messiah-Redeemer, both the Son of God and son of man, the incarnate God born in human flesh that lived as a sinless man for 33 years, died by crucifixion on a cross and returned to life in His human body to be glorified with the return of Divine attributes surrendered at birth to sit at the Right hand of the Father always interceding for the humanity that believes in the Redemptive-Resurrected work of Christ – is the reason I find Islam particularly despicable.
Regardless of the current majority of the so-called Moderate Muslims that believe Islam is peace, the Islamic holy writings and the Sharia Law based on them demand retribution for all insults to Allah and Mohammed. Those insults can be something as simple as apostatizing from Islam to another religion or to atheism, perceived defamation of Mohammed and Allah, refusing to submit to the laws of Sharia if one is in the non-Muslim minority living condition, to being a Muslim that deviates from Sharia. Retribution is up to or including execution or familial honor killing.
No holy writing from any other religions mandate such violence based on rejecting or insulting that particular religion. Now there are many adherents of other religions including my faith historical Christian adherents, who have taken it upon themselves to institute violent retribution as a matter of the rule of law apart from religious holy writings. ONLY Islam mandates violence and/or execution as a course of holy writ against a human being.
Today! In the 21st century, the so-called Muslim minority have terrorized humanity for the perception of insulting Islam, Allah and Mohammed. Even the so-called Muslim majority disown the practice, the fact remains the Muslim terrorists are instituting a reformation to return Islam to the purity of the lifestyle of the so-called perfect man the Prophet Mohammed.
Does exposing this make me a bigoted racist Muslim-hater? That is correct only as far as any Muslim stands by the purist form of Islam espoused by its prophet Mohammed and his immediate shapers of the religion of Islam that conquered in imperial bloodlust, booty and slavery followed by ramrodding the Islamic Sharia system until the remnant non-Muslims eventually became the brainwashed Muslim majority. I deplore purist Islam because I will never submit or honor that false god called Allah or the man placed on the pedestal of prophethood who was either delusionally insane or a demonized individual.
Even though I despise Islam for its antichrist nature, Jesus’ imperative to the early Believers before ascending to the right hand of the Father was to go into the world and make disciples of men. (Yup, I said “men”. I realize that is chauvinistic today but I also realize making disciples of men included women as well.) This includes the poor deluded people that have bought into the load of cow manure that Islam is peace when it is really translated to Islam is submission or else.
I have no clue as to Geert Wilders’ spiritual beliefs. I don’t know if he is a Protestant, a Catholic, a nominal secular-minded Christian or an atheist. But I do know he is looking out for the heritage that has brought the Western World to the freest humanity has achieved ever. Admittedly Europe’s cultural spin downward was given a push by multicultural Socialist-Marxism to allow the Islamic threat the freedom to prosper like cancer cells destroying its host. People like President Obama wants to push the Christian and Western European destructive mode upon America under the fallacy that transformation is good. The European example is proving to be culturally lethal. Geert Wilders is making a stand to withstand European self-destruction. Multicultural laws in Left Wing oriented Europe has made Geert Wilders a target for political elimination by the European Leftists that still believe multicultural diversity is a concept that divergent cultures and immoral lifestyles can be mutually accepted in a humanistic utopia of diverse egalitarian unity.
I am an admirer of Dutch politician Geert Wilders. Why? He is that rare high profile European that speaks his mind of what is threatening Dutch culture in the Netherlands (by the way also a huge chunk of Europe). What is threatening Dutch culture? Could it be a love of America’s free enterprise concepts in business and just taxation? Could it be Socialist/Marxist concepts that undermines the Dutch historical-cultural heritage? Wilders is not as concerned about American Capitalism vs. European Socialism as much as one other huge factor that is altering society in general. That factor is the immigration of Muslims into the Netherlands that not only refuse cultural assimilation but also are encouraged to practice the cultural norms of Islam that run counter to Dutch traditions (well … European socio-historical traditions in general – See Also book review of “While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam Is Destroying the West from Within”).
Fjordman provides some fantastic insight on the intrusion of Islam that could have or even should have been written in volumes of books:
Any discussion of an Islamic “Reformation” projects a Western European phenomenon, the Protestant Reformation, onto a totally different religion with more violent core teachings and religious texts than all other major religions on the planet combined. If by “reformation” we mean to imply a peaceful, tolerant religion with no Jihad and secular laws, then no, it is very unlikely whether such a form of Islam will ever exist. There are a few types of what we might term “diluted Islam” that are slightly less violently aggressive than the mainstream version of it, but these are all marginal in the greater scheme of things and are frequently persecuted precisely because they deviate from traditional Islamic practices.
If by “reformation” we simply mean a return to the earliest practices of the religion then we have already had a Muslim Martin Luther: the terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. He was a violent Jihadist because the earliest followers of Mohammed were also violent Jihadists. You can base a peaceful Christian religion with secular laws on the peaceful example of Jesus and his disciples as contained in the Christian Gospels. In Islam, however, such an example can only be found in the early Mecca period. As long as the example of Mohammed and his followers in Medina remain in force, along with the chapters of the Koran supposedly introduced there, any form of Islam based on traditional Islamic texts is bound to be potentially repressive, aggressive and violent. You may successfully question whether the story of Mohammed as told in traditional text is historically accurate. It probably isn’t. But if you abandon traditional sources and state that Mohammed as we think of him never existed, Islam may not be reformed, but could collapse instead.
We are currently mass importing this very conflict to all of our major cities, a process which is already well underway. It is criminal negligence on the part of our so-called leaders to continue this madness and conduct a dangerous Multicultural experiment with hundreds of millions of people as guinea pigs. This needs to end. Now.
If you believe that this analysis is correct then you are left with only one possible conclusion: We must physically separate ourselves from Islam and Islamic culture as much as is practically possible. The American essayist Lawrence Auster has dubbed this strategy “separationism,” which is not a bad term. (Why Islam Does Not Belong in the Western World; By Fjordman; Gates of Vienna – New Website); 11/20/12)
People like Geert Wilders are trying to reverse the Islamic destruction of Europe’s heritage of Western Civilization. Wilders has already been tried and cleared of Hate-Speech charges in relation to his short documentary entitled “Fitna”. Here is an excerpt of a review of the documentary:
Fitna opens with a view of a closed Qur’an, which when opened reveals a bland version of Kurt Westergaard’s turban bomb Mohammed on one page, and a ticking clock counting down from 15 minutes (the length of the film) on the opposite page. The film proceeds in the form of a casual thumbing through a few select pages of the Qur’an. A page is flipped, a few quotes encouraging terrorism and violence toward non-Muslims are presented, numerous video demonstrations of Muslim’s mirroring if not directly obeying the anti-infidel sentiments are shown, and then the page is flipped again and the process is repeated.
Video footage throughout the film includes the World Trade Center attacks, the Madrid train bombing, images of the maimed and dead of various terrorist attacks, the beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl, Muslims celebrating the killing of Theo van Gogh and warning non-Islamic Europeans that they should learn from van Gogh’s fate (read: van Gogh acted against Islam and was stabbed to death; anybody else want some?), Mohammed B—one of van Gogh’s killers—saying that he would do it again if he had the opportunity, Islamic leaders inciting extreme violence toward non-Muslims (e.g., Jews) often to the cheers of large and raucous crowds of fervent Muslims, a 3.5 year old Islamic child saying that Jews are apes and pigs because Allah says so in the Qur’an, anti-semitic signs reading “God Bless Hitler” and … (READ ENTIRETY – SUMMARY OF GEERT WILDERS’ ANTI-QUR’AN FILM FITNA (SPOILER ALERT; Posted by RB; The Frame Problem; 3/27/08)
Showing suras in the Quran which is considered the very word of the uncreated Allah and comparing them to Islamic terrorist attacks got Wilders in trouble with the judiciary in Netherlands. In America such a criminal charge would have been thrown out of Court as a violation of the First Amendment.
Leftists in America still went out of their way to label Geert Wilders a racist Muslim-hating Islamophobe. I have to ask, “How are the words of Islamic holy writings labeled as hate-speech when a non-Muslim informs the world that they exist?”
At any rate Dutch Leftists are trying to imprison Geert Wilders again under hate-speech violations encoded in the Dutch and EU legal system.
Who is in More Trouble: Wilders or The Netherlands?

“Freedom of speech is a great thing and we have said nothing that is not allowed.” — Geert Wilders, MP and leader of the Party of Freedom.
Now, the police have apparently decided to become part of the prosecution. They have drafted pre-filled “Wilders forms” to press charges and have offered to come to people’s homes to help them fill out the paperwork.
Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders again made international headlines. Nazi comparisons are rampant, self-proclaimed victims are lining up to sue and now more than ever there is a chance that Wilders actually might be convicted of hate speech.
In an interview on the Dutch Public News Service [NOS] on March 12, Wilders said (10:10): “[People] will now be voting for a safer, a more social, and… in any case a city with fewer costs, and, if at all possible, with fewer Moroccans.”
Based on those numbers, Wilders seems to imply that if there were not such a large number of Moroccans, Dutch crime rates and social welfare costs would significantly drop.
Wilder proposes that Dutch Moroccans who are habitual criminal offenders should be deprived of their Dutch passports and sent back to Morocco, an act that is possible as all Moroccans and their descendants are, by Moroccan law, prohibited from relinquishing their Moroccan passports.
Moroccans also apparently derive status from prison sentences. Evidently, upon their release, many gloat. Apparently it is only the thought of having to trade the luxury of the Netherlands — even prison — for Morocco that strikes terror into the hearts of potential offenders. In Italy, the same threat is already in effect and acts as a successful deterrent. It seems as if it is only the threat of deportation, more than any other measure, that is likely to deter young Moroccans from a life of crime.
Although the proposal is being used by Wilders’s opponents as either a laughing stock or beating stick, the merits of the proposal are rarely elaborated on, including even by Wilders. A recent poll showed 76% of Dutch voters to be in favor of the measure.
The NOS, interviewing Wilders again on March 14, asked him if he actually meant what he had said regarding Moroccans in general, possibly expecting him to say that he had only been referring to Dutch Moroccan criminals. But Wilders stood firm. He emphasized that his concern lay with the number of Moroccans currently flooding the crime statistics, and repeatedly stated, “The fewer Moroccans, the better.”
“Can you imagine that people are startled by your remarks?” he was asked.
“It is unfortunate if people are startled by the truth,” he said.
This latest round of anger against Wilders began after the announcement of voting results on March 19. At the end of his victory speech, Wilders remarked, “And the third question is, and I’m actually not allowed to say this, because I’m being sued, and there might even be Social Democrat DAs that would prosecute me, but freedom of speech is a great thing, and we have said nothing that is not allowed. We have said nothing that is not accurate. So I am asking you now: Do you want, in this city and the Netherlands, more or fewer Moroccans?” The crowd replied: “Fewer, fewer, fewer!”
That time, however, after the event, Wilders did nuance his views. He stated that he was referring to criminals, and only in favor of the voluntary repatriation of law-abiding Moroccans.
Now the police have apparently decided to become part of the prosecution. They have drafted pre-filled “Wilders forms” to press charges and have offered to come to people’s homes to fill out the paperwork.
Is Wilders a racist? He recently tweeted: “Support for Moroccan businesswomen Elou Akhiat. It is a shame she receives death threats over opening a wine bar.”

I know that most sane people believes that Terry Jones is a Muslim-hating crank covered in the auspices of a Christian Church and an academic doctorate. The thing is though his politically incorrect agenda to burn Qurans and stand on the roof tops proclaiming that Islam is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution is absolutely a good thing.
The Quran commands Muslims to convert, humiliate or kill Jews and Christians. Why? Jews and Christians believe the Bible (Pentateuch-Torah for Jews and both Old Testament and New Testament for Christians) is the Word of God while the Quran is a collection warped lies plagiarized from the Bible. The Quran actually claims the Holy writings of the Bible that pre-date Mohammed and the Quran is a pile of paper deception.
As an American Christian the anti-Liberty, Jew-Hatred and Christian-hatred embedded in the Quran, the Hadith and the Sira are quite enough to peacefully expose the nature of Islam and Sharia Law as it affects the Constitution, Judaism and Christianity. I placed the words ‘peacefully expose’ to remind non-Muslims living under the authority of the U.S. Constitution cannot and must not use violence against another religion even a theopolitical religion such as Islam. In America Religious Freedom and Free Speech are guaranteed by the very Constitution that purist Muslims desire to destroy. HOWEVER, Religious Freedom and Free Speech does not give a pass to anyone – religious or political ideology or both – to commit acts of violence against people living under the rule of law defined by the U.S. Constitution. Acts of violence aimed to illegally bring down Constitutional government is treason and should be treated as such.
Terry Jones is not committing ANY acts of violence against people when he publicly announces he is going to burn 2,998 Qurans representing the deaths of Americans by Muslims killing in the name of Allah just as the Quran commands to do against those that refuse Islamic Supremacism. Note the violence perpetrated on 9/11 was done by Radical Muslims against working Americans who for the most part had no idea their political system under the U.S. Constitution insulted Islam so much that Islamic honor required retribution.
Leftists are blind multiculturalists so I can see their extreme dislike of Terry Jones. Most upstanding Conservatives especially Republicans condemn Terry Jones because they have brainwashed that criticism of Islam is hate-speech thanks to the hard work of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the multiculturalist mindset of European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) complicity with the OIC agenda to squash all criticism of Islam.
In writing all this below is the latest public announcement from Terry Jones announcing another World Burn the Quran day scheduled for September 11, 2013. The synopsis below the video directs you to go to the website Stand Up America for more details.

We have secured a location in the Tampa Bay area for our September 11th event. We will be releasing the location in the near future.
The radical hand of Islam shows itself with violence against anyone who dares to stand up and speak the truth. We at Stand Up America Now will not back down. We will not be silent.
Abraham Lincoln said, “To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.”
On September 11th, 2013, to remember those who were murdered by radical Islam, and to send Islam a very clear warning, that they will not get their foothold in the American Constitution as they have done in Europe, we will be holding an International Burning of 2,998 Korans, representing one for each individual who was murdered in the September 11th, 2001 attacks.
President Obama is a aggressively working to convince the American public that criticism of Islam is a violation of a Muslim’s civil rights. The American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee met last week with top Department of Justice official, Bill Killian. Both groups agree: federal civil rights laws are violated by those who post “inflammatory documents” aimed at Muslims on social media.
Peaceful speech and expression is fully within our civil rights! Criticism of Islam cannot be avoided, especially in light of recent events. While this scrutiny is to be considered “inflammatory,” the murderously inflammatory words of the Koran and the teachings of Islam’s leaders are protected. We are on an extremely dangerous path as a nation!
The Woolwich, UK, killing of British soldier Lee Rigby
The stabbing of a soldier in France, again by a Muslim
ALL committed by men acting on the teachings of Islam and the Koran!

I follow Bill Warner’s blog Political Islam. Just as the blog’s name suggests theme is exposing Islam as a religion that is more ideologically political than it is theologically religious. It is this reality that Muslim Clerics and Mullahs do not want you the kafir (Islam for non-Muslim) to know about. This is especially the case in America in our First Amendment protects Religious Freedom. If Americans ever caught on that Islam is a basically a political ideology of Supremacist Hegemonic Domination, Muslims that are purist (aka Radical Islam or Islamist or Salafist) realize that American voters would begin voting for Congressmen and Senators to protect the Constitution from Political Islam.
Consider this an introduction to Bill Warner’s post “Humor-gate in Manchester”.
Humor-gate in Manchester
By Bill Warner
June 6, 2013
On June 4 the FBI and DOJ (Department of Justice) appeared at a meeting called by AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council — Muslim Brotherhood) in Manchester, TN. The meeting was due to a joke posted by a Coffee County Commissioner on Face Book. The DOJ Assistant Attorney General said in a newspaper interview that the joke might be classified as hate speech and a crime. Below is a political leaflet handed out to the over a thousand attendees at the meeting. (A note: there are only 10,000 people who live in Manchester, TN)
This event which uses the full Federal powers of the corrupt Department of Justice to suppress free speech and shape domestic politics will not be the last. The DOJ is now a full partner with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Fast and Furious, Benghazi-gate, DOJ Reporter-gate,
IRS Suppression of Free Speech and now—
Humor-gate, Free Speech Intimidation in Manchester TN
Why has Obama shaped law enforcement into agencies of intimidation of our political speech? It all starts with the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) in the UN with Resolution 16/18 that criminalizes any criticism of Islam since it blasphemes Islam. Blasphemy punishment is pure Sharia law. There is NO free speech in Islam, since it does not allow any criticism of Islam. Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, worked for 3 days in NY with the OIC to find a way to accommodate Islamic blasphemy and slander laws in America. Tonight is the fruit of that labor.
Government agencies are trained about Islam according to Muslim Brotherhood standards. They are taught that Islam is a religion and that Muslims are just like everybody else. It is forbidden to discuss Islam as a political system. Language is controlled and jihad doctrine cannot be used in the analysis of Islamic violence.
Look at tonight’s event. The AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) is a political group and this meeting is political, yet the government gives all Islamic politics the cover of religion. Religious Islam disguises political Islam and tries to enforce Sharia law.
You will be told tonight that the problem with Muslims in America is how they are victims of bigoted oppression. Victimhood is a feature of Islam. Mohammed was portrayed as a victim, without any fault. Therefore, Islam is without fault and Muslims are victims. As an example, on 9/11 Muslims were the real victims, because it made some Americans criticize Muslims and Islam.
The movie shown here tonight, Welcome to Shelbyville, is pure propaganda. Why don’t they show the fact-based film, Losing Our Sons? According to our government, a joke about Muslims is a more serious problem than Carlos Bledsoe (Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad) attempting to assassinate a rabbi here in Tennessee and his murder of our military in Arkansas. Did you know that there are no jokes about Mohammed in 1400 years? Political humor such as the Mohammed cartoons can result in riots and death. In America we can tell jokes such as Jesus, Tiger Woods and Moses are playing golf…. But, can we tell a joke about Mohammed and Aisha playing golf…? Not if it offends Muslims.
When Coffee County Commissioner Barry West posted his political satire on Face Book he found out that Islam never changes. Humor about anything Islamic has been forbidden by Sharia law for 1400 years, and it will not be tolerated now. The dhimmis (Kafirs, non-Muslims, who serve Islam) rush forward to placate a humorless Islam. This is all about the Islamists making a molehill out of a mountain.
This night is an example of how Obama’s Federal government is suppressing critical thought and forcing us to submit to an Orwellian authority. Facts are bigotry. Truth is hate.

A friend of mine from the closed Facebook group Crusade Against Mohamed posted a highlight to an essay by Jake Neuman entitled, “Islam is Hate-Crime Par Excellence”. Preceding the link to Neuman essay my friend excerpts some expose Islam information from “APPENDIX OF TEACHINGS FROM KORAN AND HADITHS: 691 TEACHINGS OF IMMORAL DEPRAVITY”. You will be disgusted after reading the quotes from the Quran and Hadith:
Only those Jews and Christians who convert to Islam will be rewarded with heaven. 2:62
Allah turned the Sabbath-breaking Jews into apes. 2:66
“Fight in the way of Allah.” 2:190, 2:244
Believers must retaliate. Those who transgress will have a painful doom. 2:178
Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (But if they desist in their unbelief, then don’t kill them.) 2:191-2
Jews and Christians believe in idols and false deities, yet they claim to be more rightly guided than Muslims. 4:51
Those (Christians and Jews) are they whom Allah hath cursed. 4:52
Allah has cursed the Jews and hardened their hearts. Nearly all of them are treacherous. 5:12-13
Christians are disbelievers for believing in the divinity of Christ. 5:17
Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, and tooth for tooth. Non-muslims are wrong doers. 5:45
Jews and Christians are losers. 5:53
Don’t choose Jews, Christians, or disbelievers as guardians. 5:57
Evil is the handiwork of the rabbis and priests. 5:63
Allah has cast enmity and hatred among the Jews. 5:64
Allah does not guide disbelievers. 5:67
The Jews rejected and killed Allah’s prophets, since “they were wilfully blind and deaf.” 5:70-71
Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom. 5:73
Muslims that make friends with disbelievers will face a doom prepared for them by Allah. 5:80
How many a township have We destroyed! As a raid by night, or while they slept at noon, Our terror came unto them. 7:4-5
Allah will punish the disbelieving Jews until the Day of Resurrection. 7:167
Those who deny Muhammad’s revelations are like dogs. 7:176
Those who deny Muhammad’s revelation are evil. 7:177
Give tidings (O Muhammad) of a painful doom to those who disbelieve. 9:3
Those who submit and convert to Islam will be treated well. (Those who don’t submit will be killed. See previous verse.) 9:6
Allah gave Muhammad the one true religion and sent him to conquer all other (false) religions. 61:9
A hypocritical Jew looks like an ass carrying books. Those who deny the revelations of Allah are ugly. 62:5
Notice the Hate-Speech and the call for violence specifically against Jews and Christians but also directed toward ALL non-Muslims!
The Neuman essay – Islam is Hate-Crime Par Excellence – focuses on this Hate-Speech that promotes Hate-Crimes AGAINST non-Muslims with a special eye for Jews and Christians.
Just as a side issue for a moment, toward the end of the Neuman essay is a source link of great importance:
This link will take you e-books in pdf format that are written by Jake Neuman. Check out those books to further educate yourself on Islam. The downloads appear dated as May 5, 2013 and are offered as FREE.
The first download appears awesome! I have only skimmed through it so far but I have downloaded for my reading queue. This is a must read book available FREE in pdf format: “Muhammad: Monster of History”.
The book is lengthy – 600 pages. Nonetheless, the book addresses issues ripped from today’s headlines with an expose Islam theme. By exposing Islam I mean the author takes in detail the Quran to show how Muslims that are labeled followers of Radical Islamic ideology. The word “Radical” implies Radical Muslims are following a different Islam than Moderate Islam. The reality is the same revered works are notable as holy to all Muslims of Radical and Moderate natures: Quran, Hadith and Sira (which includes the Sunna). The Quran is considered the holiest of the three revered collections as the very words of Allah as delivered by the perfect man they call Prophet Muhammad (or Mohammed or whatever English derivation of the Arabic name). Take the time to read to see just how perfect Muhammad is.
In the mean time here is a cross post of Jake Neuman’s essay Islam is Hate-Crime Par Excellence.

Islam is Hate-Crime Par Excellence
By Jake Neuman
19 May 2013 11:09
Recently, the Canadian Supreme Court ruled that the Biblical Speech Opposing Homosexual Behavior is a ‘Hate Crime’.
Hate is demeaning to human dignity – for both the hater and the hated. Yet, abhorrent as it is, hate speech is not necessarily a criminal act. Hate speech that calls for violence, murdering, terrorizing, enslaving or torturing of any individual or groups is criminal.
While the Canadian Supreme Court may be right in calling the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuals as hate-crime, Islam is a cesspool of literally thousands of teachings, contained in the Quran and Sunna of Prophet Muhammad, which also amount to hate-crimes. Just as Hitler laid the moral and intellectual foundation for the extermination of Jews in Mein Kampf, Islam creates the moral, intellectual and religious justification for the hate-crimes for extermination, murder, torture, terrorization, looting, pillaging, rape, and enslavement of kafirs, apostates, homosexuals, and kafir women and children.
MUSLIM PRAYER IS HATE-CRIME
What do Muslims pray 5 times a day? Nothing but bigotry and hatred of the Christians and Jews!
In their daily prayers, Muslims have to repeat the following from the Quran multiple times (Surah 1, Fatihah): “Guide us to the straight path, the path of those whom You have favored, Not of those who have incurred your wrath, nor of those who have gone astray.”
Here, Muslims are claimed to be God’s favored, while others (Jews, Christians) are on a wrong path (gone astray). Such utterance is racist, bigoted and hateful. When the same is uttered as part of sacred prayers to God, it becomes even more potent hate, deserving censure. And the Muslim Friday Prayer is even more hateful and racist, because Muslims will also have to recite Surah 62 (The Friday Congregation) and Surah 63 (The Hypocrites). Surah 62 specifically condemns Gentiles as being “in gross error”, while the Jews are compared to “a donkey laden with books”:
Surah 62.5 “The similitude of those who were charged with the (obligations of the) Mosaic Law, but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of a donkey which carries huge tomes (but understands them not). Evil is the similitude of people who falsify the Signs of God: and God guides not people who do wrong.“
Surah 63 condemns the “hypocrites”, namely the Muslims without firm belief in Islam (such as moderate, liberal Muslims), as: “They are the enemy. Guard yourself against them.”
Comparing a people to “donkey” is certainly extremely hateful and racist. So, Muslim prayers symbolize nothing but an act of hate speech, bigotry and racism, deserving censure in civilized societies.
ANTI-JEWISH HATRED IN THE QURAN AND HADITH
The Jew-hating verses that Muslims recite in their prayers are only a tip of the iceberg in terms of the sheer amount of hatred and racism embedded in Islam’s sacred scriptures, which is directed not only at the Jews but also Christians and other non-Muslims. Jews are not only compared to “donkeys” but also to “apes and swines”.
The Quran, Hadith and Sunnah devote 9.3% of its content to spreading hatred, violence and genocide of the Jews, compared to Hitler’s proverbial Mein Kampf devoting only 7%. The Medina part of the Quran is worse in inciting hatred and violence against the Jews than Mein Kampf. Here is a small sample of Allah’s divine sanction to hatred of the Jews (For more, see http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-16.htm):
1. “Wretchedness and baseness were stamped on the Jews and they were visited with wrath from Allah.” [Quran 2.61]
2. “Jews are the greediest of all humankind. They’d like to live 4,000 years. But they are going to hell.” [Quran 2:96]
3. “For the wrongdoing Jews, Allah has prepared a painful doom.” [Quran 4:160]
4. And you know well the story of those among you who broke Sabbath. We said to them: ‘Be apes—despised and hated by all.’ Thus We made their end a warning to the people of their time and succeeding generation, and an admonition for God—fearing people. [Quran 2:65]
5. “God has cursed the Jews, transforming them into apes and swine and those who serve the devil.” [Quran 5.60]
6. But when even after this they disdainfully persisted in that from which they were forbidden, We said to them, ‘Become apes—despised and disgraced!’ (Q 7:166]
Christians are also hated by Islamic God, Who demands their subjugation or murder. For example,
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.” (Quran 9:29)
Quran 9:29 is pure incitement to violence and therefore a hate crime. The Quran has given the Christians and Jews, the so-called ‘People of the Book’ of Islam, the choice to submit to the superiority of Islam and pay the Jiza tax or be attacked, mass-murdered and enslaved.
But Islam’s incitement of hatred and violence against the polytheists/idolaters (Hindus, Buddhists etc.) is even worse than that of Christians and Jews, vaulted the “People of the Book”. They must convert to Islam or die. For example:
“Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.” [Quran 9:5]
Islam calls for attack, enslavement, murder and even genocide of the non-Muslims in an open-ended manner until all peoples of the world become Muslim. Nothing can be greater hate, and incitement to violence, than such divine teachings. These teachings are the most extreme of hate-crimes. The Quran is nothing more than a terrorist manual filled with exhortations to violence against kafirs (2:190-193, 4:89, 9:123, 47:4, etc.). There are 22 Categories of Islam-sanctioned murders. (For more hate-crime verses calling for murder of kafirs, go to http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-132.htm. For 691 Quranic verses of hate against non-Muslims, go to http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-23.htm)
o Quran-8:17—“It is not ye who Slew them; it is God; when thou threwest a handful of dust, it was not Thy act, but God’s…..” (Allah said, the killing of surrendered soldiers were done by the wish of Allah)
o Quran-8:67—“It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth (for you) the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise.” (Allah insisting Prophet to kill all the prisoners, and should not keep any surrendered prisoners alive until He (Prophet) occupied entire Arabia.
o Bukhari V4B52N177: “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”‘
These passages from sacred Islamic texts are clear example of Islam being the hate-crime par excellence. Islamic God calls upon Muslims to “Make slaughter in the land” upon non-Muslims, a clear divine command for committing genocide.
Quran 8:41: “And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah and to the Messenger…”
For God to order the capturing of booty from conquered kafirs with 20% of it going to God and His Prophet, makes that God nothing more than the “mafia chieftain” of the universe, inciting utmost hate-crime against innocent non-Muslims. (For hundreds of more hate-crime teachings of Islam, see http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-193.htm)
Jihad: The Ultimate Incitement of Hatred and Violence
Jihad is the central Islamic doctrine of unconditional war, the Islamic holy war, against non-Muslims, which must continue until all non-Muslims of the world embrace Islam, or are enslaved or annihilated. Quranic texts, exhorting to Jihad, occupies 9% of all verses, while 24% of those revealed in Medina. Jihad-related content takes up 21% of the Bukhari material and the Sira devotes 67% of its text to jihad (For more, see http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-121.htm)
Exhorting Islamic holy war or Jihad for forced conversion, enslavement or annihilation of people—just because they follow Christian, Jewish, Polytheistic or other religions than Islam—is the worst kind of incitement of hatred and violence. Islamic teachings of Jihad make Islamic God Allah an accomplice to murder, war, death and destruction, a worst criminal imaginable.
ISLAMIC HATE CRIME AGAINST HOMOSEXUALS
The Canadian Supreme Court that ruled the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuals as hate-crime may also take note of the much-worse Islamic hate-crime against homosexuals that includes incitement to killing them, burning alive or throwing under collapsing walls:
o ‘If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done’ (Abu Dawud, 4447).
o Ibn Abbas and Abu Huraira reported God’s messenger as saying, ‘Accursed is he who does what Lot’s people did.’ In a version… on the authority of Ibn Abbas it says that Ali [Muhammad's cousin and son—in—law] had two people burned and that Abu Bakr [Muhammad's chief companion] had a wall thrown down on them. (Mishkat, vol. 1, p. 765, Prescribed Punishments)
QURANIC VERSE 9.111 – THE MOST EVIL INCITEMENT OF HATE-CRIME
“Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain…” (9:111)
Verse 9:111 is clear incitement of Jihad suicide that we see around the world today. Muslims’ life is owned by Allah, and their only job is fight in Allah’s cause (establishing Islam) and will kill or be killed in the process. There can be no worse incitement to hatred and violence than this. Allah is the peerless master of incitement of violence and bloodbath. What is even is worse, if a Muslim die while trying to kill the infidels, he/she becomes a martyr with guaranteed accession of the whorish virgins-filled Islamic paradise (see Quran 44:51-54, 78:31-33, 37:40-48, 44:51-55, 52:17-20, 55:56-58, 70-77, 56:7-40, 78:31), the ultimate salvation for a Muslim. And given the extreme potency of this Jihadi incitement, Islamic Jihadis have slaughtered an estimated 270,000,000 kafirs over the last 1,400. Muslim Jihadists did the same on 9/11 slaughtering nearly 3000 people. They did the same in the London subway/bus massacres. They did the same in the Mumbai slaughter, and many more.
ISLAMIC HATE-CRIME AGAINST WOMEN
Modern civilized societies deem women as equal to men in terms of rights and dignity. Reducing women to a vile, psychologically impaired and inferior being to men is a crime against women’s natural place in society. And that’s what Islamic theology exactly does. In Islam, women are inferior to men, have lower intelligence and inheritance rights, are compared to dogs and donkeys, to be subjugated to polygamy with no right to divorce their husbands, can be unconditionally beaten by husbands (4:34), and are compared to fields to be ploughed by men any time and any way they want (2:22). There are some 151 verses in the Quran dealing with women and 102 or 67% of those are demeaning to them. While in the Hadiths, 93% of the texts dealing with women are demeaning to them.
ISLAMIC CRIME OF RAPE JIHAD
4.24: “And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you. Lawful unto you are all beyond those mentioned, so that ye seek them with your wealth in honest wedlock, not debauchery. And those of whom ye seek content (by marrying them), give unto them their portions as a duty. And there is no sin for you in what ye do by mutual agreement after the duty (hath been done). Lo! Allah is ever Knower, Wise.”
So, Muslims can capture infidel women and unconditionally rape them as their God-given religious right. And quite naturally rape Jihad is epidemic throughout Europe. There are an incredible 5,000 gang rapes by Muslims each year across France. In Norway, 9 out of 10 rapes are done by mostly Muslim men. Sweden has the highest per capita rape jihad with 5,000 rapes yearly.
The list of Islamic hate-crimes can go on and on, including against apostate of Islam, racist hatred against Black people, slavery, subjugated of Christians and Jews into dhimmi subjects and much more.
(Ishaq, p. 243):
“I heard the Apostle say: ‘Whoever wants to see Satan should look at Nabtal!’ He was a black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks… Allah sent down concerning him: ‘To those who annoy the Prophet there is a painful doom.” [9:61] “Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, ‘If a black man comes to you his heart is more gross than a donkey’s.”
Some 120 million blacks perished in the Islamic slavery holocaust. 75% of blacks died on the way to market and those black men who survived were castrated “based on the assumption that the blacks had an ungovernable sexual appetite. (for more on racism and slavery of Islam, see http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-30.htm)
In sum, Islamic sacred texts are filled with exhortations to hatred, racism, gender apartheid, human rights violation, and even worst violence and genocide which are all horrendous hate-crimes.
Islam – Thy name is hate-crime par excellence. The Canadian Supreme Court better takes note.

Islam is Hate-Crime Par Excellence
About Islam Watch
We are a group of Muslim apostates, who have left Islam out of our own conviction when we discovered that Islam is not a religion at all. Most of us took a prolonged period of time to study, evaluate and contemplate on Islam, the religion of our birth. Having meticulously scrutinized Islam, we concluded that it is not a religion of peace at all, as touted by smooth-talking, self-serving Muslims and their apologists from non-Muslim backgrounds. The core of Islam—namely the Qur’an, Hadis and Sharia—is filled with unbounded hatred of the unbelievers, unbelievably intolerant toward them, and extremely cruel and merciless to those Muslims, who dare to deviate from its doctrines.
We also realized that Islam is beyond reformation, because Muslims—who attempt to modernize and reform its unremitting bigotry, irrational rituals, and cruel and draconian punitive measures—are targeted for annihilation. Our verdict was that the only way to escape from the tyranny of Islam is to leave it altogether. We have, therefore, discarded Islam from our life, so that we can be free to enjoy a normal, pleasant and humane life in complete harmony with all peoples on earth, irrespective of their religion, race or creed.
Having thoroughly understood—through our meticulous investigation of Islam for years to decades—that Islam was nothing but a lie, most of us have left Islam silently, because of the mortal threats of Islam on our life. As Islamic terrorism and violence overwhelms the world, particularly in the post-9/11 years, we … Read the Rest

Fjordman writes an essay entitled “Top Norwegian Prof: Critics of Mass Immigration Mentally Ill”. If you are an American I urge you to read this essay! The essay is about Free Speech in Norway and how the Left utilizes Hate-Speech laws to shut up Conservatives and those against the mass immigration of culturally different people to Norway. The culturally different people are not non-Nordic people of Europe or of the Oriental Asian persuasion. The immigration of people with a totally divergent culture to Norway is Sharia-Minded Muslims that are literally taking over broad swaths of Norwegian communities. This is significant because of the rise of crime perpetrated by Muslims against the Norwegians. Blond Norwegian gals are so concerned of the rape epidemic perpetrated by Muslims against non-Muslims that they are dying their hair to a dark brunette.
Why should Americans be concerned of how Islam affects Norwegian culture or how Norway’s Left propagandizes multiculturalism so much that they try to throw anti-multiculturalists and Counterjihadists in jail to repress threats to reversing the acceptance of multiculturalism?
The reason is Norway’s limitation on Liberty and Free Speech is a snapshot of America’s potential future. With Obama now being exposed as running a politically corrupt Administration that actually uses government agencies (Like the IRS, Justice Dept. or Agenda 21) to repress American Conservatives it is quite apparent the Norwegian snapshot looms near if we do not undo Obama’s “Change”.

This article is a little difficult to read in my opinion; nonetheless the message is clear. A German got himself in hot water over going public that the non-German immigrants of the Turkish and Arab persuasion are increasing via the birthrate exponentially enough to overtake the homegrown European Germanic culture. And as that immigration population grows they are the ones that tend to live on the German government welfare.
That German is Thilo Sarrazin who has been a prominent German politician and now an important Executive Board Member of the German Bundesbank which is the central bank of the Federal Republic of Germany and as such part of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB).
Evidently Sarrazin is both controversial and popular in Germany because of this book he wrote in 2010 which in English is rendered “Germany Abolishes Itself: How We Are Risking Our Country”. (I noticed Wikipedia has a different translation of this title: “Germany Is Doing Away With Itself”.)
This article is entitled “UN Pressures Germany to Bow to ‘Hate Speech’ Hysteria”. Evidently an agency of the United Nations the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) is the anti-Free Speech agenda to squash opinions such as those presented by Thilo Sarrazin. Here is an excerpt of the CERD mission from its website:
The Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) is the body of independent experts that monitors implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination by its State parties.
All States parties are obliged to submit regular reports to the Committee on how the rights are being implemented. States must report initially one year after acceding to the Convention and then every two years. The Committee examines each report and addresses its concerns and recommendations to the State party in the form of “concluding observations”.
In addition to the reporting procedure, the Convention establishes three other mechanisms through which the Committee performs its monitoring functions: the early-warning procedure, the examination of inter-state complaints and the examination of individual complaints.
The Committee meets in Geneva and normally holds two sessions per year consisting of three weeks each.
The Committee also publishes its interpretation of the content of human rights provisions, known as general recommendations (or general comments), on thematic issues and organizes thematic discussions.
For more information about the work of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, click here.
The CERD decision placing pressure on the German government is 19 pages. You can read the entire pdf English translation document; however I think you can get the gist of how the U.N. is imposing Free Speech suppression according to how Americans view Free Speech from this small excerpt:
3.3 The petitioner argues that since Mr. Sarrazin is the former Finance Senator of the Berlin Senate and member of the Board of Directors of the German Central Bank, his authority leads to the perception that his statements are based on proven facts and, therefore, “the truth”. It adds that the effects of Mr. Sarrazin’s statements enhance prejudices of the majority towards the Turkish population and individuals of Turkish heritage, including their children. The petitioner submits that such racially discriminatory statements are not covered by the right to freedom of expression because the concerned group has a right to live without prejudices and general intolerance, and the freedom to exercise their rights should be respected. The statements made by Mr. Sarrazin should be assessed in the framework of the special social context of Germany, adding to the general pattern of incitement to racial hatred against the Turkish population, which in the circumstances can be even more dangerous than openly flaunted racism, which is easier to combat. With the termination of the investigation against Mr. Sarrazin, the petitioner claims that it was arbitrarily denied protection against racially discriminatory statements directed against it as a group of individuals of Turkish heritage and as the representative of this group and the propagation thereof represents a violation of articles 2 (1 (d), 4, (a) and 6.
So here’s the thing. The U.N.’s CERD is forcing Germany to comply with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to prohibit all forms of criticism of Islam which is responsible for most of the world’s global terrorism.
Oops! I just violated U.N.’s campaign to protect Islam. Oh well, I’ll get over it.

I have Fjordman on my Google email alert. I am a huge fan of Fjordman’s essays. Unfortunately Fjordman is often vilified in his native Norway for exposing the reality that modern Islam has a dark side that is completely related to the religion’s early days under its founder Mohammed and the following Caliphs that used Mo’s theo-political ideals to spread an empire and to culturally brainwash the conquered as much as was possible without completely killing them all.
It is terrifyingly fascinating that Leftists across the Western World get in line with the Muslim apologists that assert Islam has moderated today much as Christian culture in the West has abandoned its harsher actions in the name of promoting Christianity.
That which Leftists and Muslim fail to tell its listeners is that Christian holy writings condemn senseless violence to achieve goals related to the political world while Islamic writings specifically tell Muslims to use violence to defend Islam from verbal assault and to spread the religion’s theo-political ideological tenets.
When Fjordman writes the truth about Islam the vilification he receives flows in the form of the accusation of racism. The racist accusation is remarkable since Fjordman’s criticism of the practices of Islam is essentially a defense of Western culture as it has developed under the influence of Christianity and Greco-Roman thought.
The essay that has caught my attention is entitled, “Fjordman: Importing Islamic Nightmares — While Denying Them”. The Google email alert pointed me to the Winds of Jihad maintained by the pseudonym person called Sheik Yer’ Mami. However, the Fjordman essay was originally posted at FrontPage Mag.
Now that I have shown the pedigree of the essay here is the reason you should read it.
Fjordman writes about the blind eye of the Leftist governments in Norway and to a lesser extent to Sweden and shows how that blind eye has increased violent in Nordic nations to an alarming rate. It is alarming because Fjordman asserts violent crime had the fewer occurrences in Nordic nations than any other place in Free Europe. Tragically the violent crimes have less to do with criminal enterprises and more to do with expressing Islamic Supremacism over the native Nordic/Western Culture.
Now if you are an American reader you need to pay attention to this cultural blind eye toward Islamic culture and the Muslims that exude that religion because the ‘Islam is Peace’ crowd in America will perpetuate the idiocy of European Leftist cultural blindness in the name of Multiculturalism.

Are you a Christian devoted to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ? In Christ’s Ascension one of the last words spoken to the Disciples was to go into all the Earth and preach the Good News to all Creation. The essence of that Good News is this:
34 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality.35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.36 The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all— 37 that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. 39 And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they[a] killed by hanging on a tree. 40 Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, 41 not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. 42 And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead. 43 To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.” (Acts 10: 34-43 NKJV)
Do you realize this is offensive to Muslims? If a Muslim proceeds with their version of evangelism they call dawa, fine. A staunch Christian will say that is bologna: Mohammed was no prophet; he was an anti-Christ preacher who specifically told his crowd that Christ did not die on the Cross and for that matter never Resurrected from death to life offering Salvation to those who choose life over the death of Satan’s influence.
If a Christian Minister desires to educate a Congregation on how Islam insults Christianity by its false religion comparative the Christian faithful, Leftist Multiculturalists and Muslim Apologists would cry that is bigoted hate-speech. If a Christian Minister preached Biblical truths in a Muslim nation he would be guilty of breaking Islamic Supremacist Sharia based Blasphemy Laws and would be subject to the death penalty for exercising the human civil right of Free Speech and Religious Freedom.
There is a local Murfreesboro, TN newspaper called The Rutherford Reader that happens to be located in a community that has a significant Muslim population. Muslim Apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists have been painting a picture that the Reader is a bigoted hate-speech filled periodical that should be boycotted for its print content.
Does The Rutherford Reader call for?
§ Violence against Muslims?
§ That Mosques should be burned down for anti-Christian and anti-American rhetoric?
§ That Muslims should be made into second class citizens since the Quran requires this of non-Muslims?
§ That Christians that convert to Islam should be put death for leaving their faith for an anti-Christ faith?
NO! The Rutherford Reader does none of things that the Christian Bible prohibits. Also the U.S. Constitution – especially the First Amendment – would make the action of such incitement illegal. Did you know Sharia Law prescribes the actions above if the role is reversed and non-Muslims insulted Islam? Violence, Churches burnt to the ground, dhimmitude and death to a Muslim that leaves Islam for another religion are all Sharia Law inspired actions.
Perhaps the Muslims of Murfreesboro are those Moderate Muslims we hear so much about, right? Hmm … Islamic Center of Murfreesboro (ICM) Board Member Mosaad Rowash has been openly supportive of Jew-Hating Islamic terrorist organization Hamas as well as having close encounter with Radical Islamic organization Muslim America Society (MAS). The MAS is a front group for the Radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood.
Check out what former FBI Agent John Guandolo says about ICM:
§ the Murfreesboro Imam is a recognized leader and “jurist” in the Muslim Brotherhood worldwide. He taught “Dawah” in Europe, and was at the top of his class at Al Azhar University, Cairo (4 out of 200) – the most prestigious and authoritative school of Islamic Jurisprudence in the world, and the oldest.
§ The ICM Bylaws asserting primacy of Islamic law were copied from other “Islamic Centers.” Muslim Brotherhood Bylaws and the El Barasse Explanatory Memorandum define “Islamic Centers” or mosques as beehives for activities and supplies for “battalions,” and at some point the beginning and center of violence.
§ The ICM “reading list” of the Imam began with Yousef Qaradawi, who issued a “fatwah” calling for killing of U.S. troops and civilians in Iraq.
§ The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro is a “front” organization for the Muslim Brotherhood posing a security threat to Murfreesboro citizens, who are under- educated on the topic of the threat. Both they and the County Commission should have been informed of this threat to enable public participation in the ICM site plan approval meeting.
NO! The ICM is a Radical Islamic Mosque propagating the theopolitical ideology of purist Islam of which critics claim only represents 10% of Islam. The fact is a huge amount of Mosques in the USA (including ICM) receive financing and ideological support from Wahhabi based Saudi Arabia and Egyptian based Muslim Brotherhood. If the critics are correct about the 10% radicalization of Islam, I find it quite alarming that the 10% of radicals is sending the money, literature and theology to like over 90% of the Muslim Mosques.
Saying that about ICM’s kind of Islam, someone explain to me why it is bigoted hate-speech to expose these connections to Radical Islam. Personally as a Christian American I should have the right to criticize Islam whether it is moderate or radical because Islamic theology is specifically anti-Christian in it denial of the birth, death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ the Son of God that is both fully God and fully human to be able to save humanity to enslavement to the Adam-Satan legacy curse. Islam’s assertion that Mohammed is the last Prophet and Allah is his God and that the Old and New Testament are corrupted is offensive to me. I am not going to burn Mosques or assassinate Muslim over this offense; however I am going to expose the difference between Islam and Christianity as well as between Mohammed and Christ.
In the case of the ICM and the Muslims that attend there is definitely a radical connection that moves Islamic Supremacism toward the overthrow of the U.S. Constitution, Jew-hatred and Christian-hatred. These things need exposed.
Again this is where The Rutherford Reader comes in. The warnings of The Rutherford Reader about Islam and especially the Islam practiced by the leadership of the ICM are absolutely needed and reporting the truth is NOT bigoted hate-speech.
That being said – below is a great defense of The Rutherford Reader against MSM Leftists that vilifying the local Murfreesboro periodical by Justin O. Smith.
Who Hates Free Speech?

Once again ‘The Rutherford Reader’ is under assault by Leftists, islamofascist sympathizers and the Associated Press over its defense of our First Amendment from Sharia Law corruption and infiltration of our legal system. The Associated Press sinks to desperate tactics by going back to 2010 and quoting an unintelligent Melissa Eads (Kroger corporate office) as saying ‘The Reader’ was removed from their stores due to a pattern of “hate rhetoric”; she actually said “hate-speech”, which she was at a loss to define when asked. And now, Sara Mitchell and others are attempting to have ‘The Reader’ removed from other locations.
Using the term “hate rhetoric” illustrates that whoever wrote the AP article did not have a good grasp of the English language, could not understand sentences structured around facts and had never read the Western classics of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle; by the same token, Sara Mitchell’s and her accomplice’s actions make it obvious that they do not want to live in a society ruled by freedom of thought, opinion or speech.
I was one of the first to speak out against the vandalism and burning of the Columbia, TN mosque in 2008, however, just as neo-nazi white supremacists would trample on the Civil Rights of peoples of color and reduce them to second class citizens if they could, or just as the New Black Panthers state “we need to kill a whole lot of white babies” and have no qualms disenfranchising whites, so too would Muslims foist the same on all Americans, by eradicating free speech and religious freedom as it has typically existed from our nation’s founding, until the past four decades and especially since 2008; Islam and Sharia represent something much worse than nazifascism as they now stand, which is the reason I write often about Islam’s perverse nature, its incompatibility with democracy and the U.S. Constitution and the need to halt all Islamic immigration to the U.S. immediately due to Muslims often stated goal of subordinating and subjugating the entire U.S. under Sharia law dominance. I simply oppose any attempt to legitimize illiberal, unConstitutional and anti-Freedom ideologies within these United States!
Islam and Sharia law are more cruel and more steeped in fascist tenets than America’s white supremacist movements or Hitler’s 1940s brand of fascism, within a simple added religious context; so many of the Greatest Generation died fighting this very sort of totalitarian ideology all across Europe…Aren’t Islamic atrocities just as horrible as those perpetrated by the Nazis?…CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood have already insisted on applying Sharia concepts within our state governments and public education system, and Muslim sympathizers like Mitchell, unless they are Leftists too, do not understand that fully applied Sharia law incorporates much more than prayer, food or hygiene rules; Sharia law always becomes an instrument of murder and totalitarianism!
Worship however you desire. Worship trees, goats, earthworms… or Allah…or Jesus Christ… or Buddha… but do not try to force me to worship as you or to submit in any manner to your religious doctrine. Not Christianity… not Hinduism… not Buddhism… Only Islam tries to force itself on others wherever it appears! While I am aware of some peaceful Muslims who truly worship only according to the Abrahamic passages they have stolen from Judaism and Christianity, give me a hundred thousand Buddhists or Sikhs at America’s shores over one Muslim any day!
Has America fallen to the point where only a few lucky elitist arbiters from the political Left get to decide what is “free speech” and what is not?
Even the Obama administration is now advocating limits on free speech. We heard Secretary of State Hillary Clinton state that no one should denigrate or insult any religion after our U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens was murdered during a planned assault, that UN Ambassador Susan Rice still describes as a “spontaneous protest” over a U.S. made film insulting Islam. As of December 2011 and in contravention of the U.S. Constitution, Clinton has been supporting the UN Resolution 16/18 that criminalizes criticizing Islam in any nation that signs it, and yet, all America regularly witnesses Christianity assaulted, denigrated and insulted in the vilest of manners without any ensuing riots, mayhem and murder occurring (Remember the crucifix in the jar of urine displayed at the Smithsonian and called art?) The Islamic nations simply have not entered the 21st century and are far from civilized.
Whether or not one agrees with any of my positions or those of my esteemed colleagues and the editors of ‘The Rutherford Reader’, our articles are nearly always full of information and facts that the liberal “mainstream media” refuses to address, especially anything relating to Islam, Sharia law and islamofascist tactics or Muslim inspired terrorism in America. From the liberal press perspective, anything that tears apart the fabric of Judeo-Christian principles helps in their battle to fully abrogate the U.S. Constitution and usher in an “elite” Leftist authoritarian government, in which all these little Red-Diaper Doper Babies, such as foot-soldiers like Mitchell, think that they will be a part of that “elite”… probably just described Mitchell’s and accomplice’s fantasy. However, despite their efforts, I will continue speaking and writing the truth, even should there come a time the government calls my words “a crime”… It is my God-Given Right!… And the Truth shines like a Light in the darkest of nights!
People such as Mitchell and others serve Political Correctness and a Leftist agenda, and as lackeys of Islam and the Left they must stick to a script slyly imposed upon them through indoctrination and their own weak minds. How fearful they must be of looking the Truth in the face and denying facts; they are afraid of not being sufficiently aligned, obedient, servile, and thus risk “moral” exile as imposed by immoral socialist societies who blackmail their citizens. They would rather sell their souls to the Islamists and Obama’s Progressive Communists than take a risk, show courage and Live Free! “The secret of happiness is Freedom, and the secret of Freedom is Courage,” said Pericles.
Kaye and Pete Doughtie, editors/owners of ‘The Rutherford Reader’, fight the fascist tactics of the New Left and Islam fearlessly with intelligence and knowledge, as myself and millions of others across Our Beloved America stand with them and refuse to endure such despotism or submit and remain silent in the face of this new combined and growing Left-Muslim fascist movement. And, anyone even remotely considering removing ‘The Rutherford Reader’ should look deep within their own world view… their own souls… to remove ‘The Rutherford reader’ would be a betrayal of every good and decent principle that built this nation… anyone removing ‘The Rutherford Reader’ does a great disservice to the Freedom-Loving People of Rutherford County, the State of Tennessee and these United States!
