I received a chain email from a respected friend. The chain email has been around for awhile and its most common title is “Joys of Muslim Women.” The words of the chain email are attributed to Nonie Darwish. Darwish has become an esteemed Counterjihad writer and speaker. The term Counterjihad means Darwish is scores big on the Muslim and Leftist hate-meter which in turn means Muslim Apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists spew hate towards her by ironically accusing her of Hate Speech.
Briefly Nonie Darwish was born a Muslim in Egypt that also resided in Gaza. Gaza can be nicknamed Hamastan due to the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Islamic terrorist group Hamas ruling Gaza.
Unfortunately the chain email attribution to Nonie Darwish is a falsehood. However, Darwish agrees that much of the information in the chain email is accurate. Here are some quotes from some fact check websites (that I might illuminate are leaning toward the Left and are quick to display the Islamic Apologist view that utilizes Taqiyya [deception] to contradict Counterjihadists with abrogated verses from the Quran).
Watch Nonie Darwish in a passionate indictment against Islam’s Shariah Law in this video:
Fact Checkers on Chain Email:
Analysis: Despite the attribution at the top (“Joys of Muslim Women by Nonie Darwish”), this text was not written by Muslim-turned-Christian human rights activist Nonie Darwish; indeed, the bottom two-thirds of it repeatedly refer to her in the third person. Darwish confirmed via email that she did not write the article, though it is, in her words, “to a large extent accurate.” She further stated that her 2009 book, Cruel and Usual Punishment, better represents her views.
It should be noted that while the email is at least partially based on Darwish’s personal experiences growing up in a Muslim country and reading the Qur’an, her claim that it’s to a large extent accurate also means that, even in her opinion, it’s not entirely accurate. To say the least, the text is hyperbolic, awash in generalizations, and makes extreme claims about Islam and Islamic practices that do not pertain to all Muslims.

Fact Check: Nonie Darwish and Enough Muslims to Elect a President in 20 years – Irregular Times
Posted by Jim Cook
January 23rd, 2011
In this morning’s e-mail, Irregular Times received the following message:
Joys of Muslim Women by Nonie Darwish…
In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Canada to elect the President or Prime Minister by themselves! Rest assured they will do so… You can look at how they have taken over several towns in the USA and Canada, Dearborn Mich. is one, Brampton, Ontario is another and there are others…
I think everyone in the U.S. and Canada should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
Claim: Nonie Darwish wrote this article, “The Joys of Muslim Women,” or any other piece of writing so titled.
Fact: Nonie Darwish has specifically denied this. The association of Nonie Darwish with this text is a hoax.
Claim: The ACLU is preventing the wide dissemination of the assertion I received by e-mail.
Fact: There is not any record of the ACLU agitating to restrict the dissemination of this text. It would not make sense for the ACLU to agitate to restrict dissemination of this text, since the ACLU is a major proponent of free speech, including freedom of speech for unpopular ideas across the political spectrum. As an empirical matter, a google search for the text “In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President by themselves” turns up 17,900 results, indicating a rather wide dissemination. It is nearly impossible to prove that a conspiracy does not exist, so I leave it to you to decide between the two possibilities: Either the ACLU is carrying on a stealthy, invisible and utterly ineffectual campaign to quash the story we received by e-mail this morning, or the ACLU is not trying to quash it at all.
Claim: “In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Canada to elect the President or Prime Minister by themselves!”
Fact: This is a claim we looked at last September after someone used it as a justification of bans on mosque building:
As a mother and a grandmother, I worry. I learned that in 20 years with the rate of the birth population, we will be overtaken by Islam, and their goal is to get people in Congress and the Supreme Court to see that Shariah is implemented. My children and grandchildren will have to live under that.
The truth is that, according to the two most recent studies of religious populations in America, (the American Religious Identification Survey and the U.S. Religious Landscape Survey), Muslims make up only 0.6% of the adult population of the United States. That’s approximately 1.8 million out of about 300 million Americans.
Here’s a graph showing what we can expect the Muslim population of the United States to look like over the next twenty years if the American Muslim population follows the U.S. birth rate, the World birth rate, or the Saudi birth rate (three reasonable expectations):
The total U.S. population during the period will be somewhere in the range of 300-350 million. Clearly, unless a comet blasts into North America and Muslims put up their secret comet-debris-shields, there is no reasonable scenario under which the American Muslim population will come anywhere close to making up a majority in the next twenty years.
Conclusion: This article is once, twice, three times disconnected from reality.
If you want to read the chain email then you need to stick with me. I am posting it as I received it from my friend. Nonetheless, there are some allegations within the email that are simply meant to stir up an anti-Muslim sentiment among readers. The thing is exaggerated and false statistical stands do not need to be made. A careful examination of the Quran with an understanding of Islam’s dualistic theology; that the newest commands from Mohammed (or Allah depending on your perception) outweigh previous commands – the principle is Abrogation; know that although the Quran (See also Chronological Order) is considered the uncreated word of Allah by Muslims BUT the Hadith and Sira weigh in heavily in interpreting the Quran and realize that some Hadith are considered more accurate than others then become cognizant which of those Hadith are the most accepted. Muslim Apologists either knowingly lies by telling an abrogated verse (or surah) is the foundation of Islam. A Muslim theologian can lie with a straight face because Islam’s dualistic principles actually can make two opposites true if it serves the purpose of the moment. In Western thought theology is more singular in that the theological thought is either right or wrong and NOT both right dependent on circumstances.
As a reminder Nonie Darwish has said the chain email “Joys of Muslim Women” was not written by her but that the essence of its message is true. Now some of the claims in it are ridiculous yet the anti-woman aspect of the email is valid.
So without further adieu here is the text of that chain email sent to me by a friend.
20 years from now? Frightening!!!!
Sent to me: 5/5/2013 6:41 PM
I am guilty of thinking that each religion had one main prophet and a “golden rule”. I am wrong. The Muslim religion is spreading like the plague and it carries the same gruesome results if we do not stop it now.
20 years from now, I will be in Heaven – bye!!!
This was written by a woman born in Egypt as a Muslim. Make sure you read the paragraph (in red) towards the end.
Joys of Muslim Women
By Nonie Darwish
In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. And then consummate the marriage by 9.
The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.
Even though a woman is abused she cannot obtain a divorce.
To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses.
Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives ‘at will’ and he does not have to say why he has beaten her.
The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.
The Shariah Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of the woman.
In the West World (America and Britain) Muslim men are starting to demand Shariah Law so the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities and British Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to the Shariah law.
By passing this on, enlightened American and British women may avoid becoming a slave under Shariah Law.
Ripping the West in Two.
Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Shariah law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two.
She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law. Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America in 1978, when she was eight years old. Her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel. He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza…
When he died, he was considered a “shahid,” a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society.
But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing… She converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on television.
In her latest book, Darwish warns about creeping shariah law – what it is, what it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic countries.
For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this world.
Peace and prosperity for one’s children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.
While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Shariah teaches two systems of ethics – one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Shariah encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others.
While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a personal understanding of and relationship with God, Shariah advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism.
It’s hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformation is common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the Middle East that is silenced through intimidation.
While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere.
(In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Britain to elect the President and Prime Minister by themselves! Rest assured they will do so… You can look at how they have taken over several towns in the US… Dearborn Mich. is one…and there are others… Britain has several cities now totally controlled by Muslims.)
I think everyone in the U.S. And Great Britain should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
It is too bad that so many are disillusioned with life and Christianity to accept Muslims as peaceful. Some may be but they have an army that is willing to shed blood in the name of Islam. The peaceful support the warriors with their finances and own kind of patriotism to their religion. While America and Britain are getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and erasing God from the lives of children, the Muslims are planning a great jihad on America and Britain.
This is your chance to make a difference! Pass it on to your email list or at least those you think will listen.
Some of those I’m sending it to WILL NOT! Put your head back under the covers so you can’t see the boogie man!

Although Justin O. Smith does not mention the term “Islamic Supremacism,” that is what he is actually writing about in this essay.
Anomalies, Martyrs and Terrorism
By Justin O. Smith
April 8, 2013 at 1:53pm
The greatest threat to the national security of the United States is not Al Qaeda terrorism, but rather the Islamic faith itself, especially now since Barack Obama seems intent on advancing Islamic interests in our nation over those of American citizens; all of us missed numerous warning signs over three decades leading up to the heinous attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11, however, through the lens of history and present day events, one cannot deny the definitive proof of the violent imperialism intrinsic to Islam. And, despite the number of times anyone asserts in clichéd terms that “not all Muslims are terrorists and not all terrorists are Muslims,” the fact remains that America is today less secure than it was on what many Muslims refer to as “the Tuesday of God’s glory.”
Many people are often beguiled by Islamists’ explanations of terrorism. Harrison Akins, Ibn Khaldun Chair Research Fellow at the American University in DC, would have us believe the assertions of Akbar Ahmed, Chair of Islamic Studies-American Univ, that terrorism is mainly a product of tribal dynamics and codes and a fight for “their rights,” rather than anything emanating from the edicts of Islam. This sort of victimology dismisses the fact that supposedly “civilized and educated” Muslim doctors, lawyers and engineers have engaged in terrorism, the “intellectual elite” supported Iran’s Ayatollah Khomenei and U.S. and European educated Islamists/Muslim Brotherhood members have risen to power and the top positions within Egypt’s present day government. Then there is Remziya Suleyman.
Remziya Suleyman is the director of the Tennessee American Muslim Advisory Council, and since 2011 she has worked towards Sharia law in Tennessee as well as proselytizing and presenting Islam inside U.S. public schools. She states that she is “working for religious freedom for Muslims… even if everyone else’s religious and constitutional freedoms are abridged in the process.” Suleyman also involved Hamas affiliated CAIR in her protest at the Tennessee capitol against the anti-terrorism bill.
Although there are many current cases of attempted terrorist acts by islamofascists residing in the U.S., two older cases are more relevant in light of the recent focus on U.S. border security:
On July 28, 2004, custom officials in McAllen, Texas arrested Farida Goolam Mohamed Ahmed at the airport, when they noticed her South African passport lacked an official entry stamp for the United States. It was soon discovered that this Muslim woman had entered the U.S. illegally; she proved to be a terrorist courier operating between the Middle East mujahadeen and an Al Qaeda cell in New York, as she sneaked into the U.S. nearly 300 times before her arrest. Information from her interrogations led to the arrests of several Al Qaeda agents in Mexico.
Also in 2004, during a search for the terrorist Al Qaeda member, U.S. citizen and nuclear technician known as Adnan el-Shukrijumah, another key Al Qaeda operative, Sharif al-Masri, was arrested in Pakistan. Masri had close ties to al-Zawahiri, Al Qaeda’s second in command, and during an interrogation he disclosed that Al Qaeda had made arrangements to smuggle tactical nuclear weapons from Mexico to the U.S. with the help of the Mara Savatrucha Latino street gang.
During the 1970s, India fought a fierce war with her Muslim citizens, until the regions known today as Pakistan and Bangladesh were won by the Muslims. Bangladesh, originally tied to Pakistan politically and under the same government, soon fought an internecine war for independence due to Islamic doctrinal differences. And now today, the Muslims currently living in India are attempting to claim the rest of India and impose Sharia law; the conquest never stops!
Just this year, the world has seen new Islamic generated conflicts, as Uighur Muslims in western China (near the Afghanistan border) have stirred in a move towards independence, the Islamic Maghreb and Taureg rebels temporarily held the northern half of Mali and the Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar have attacked the Buddhists. Although the following has occurred often over the centuries, on April 6, the Muslims in Egypt also once more felt compelled to mount an unprovoked attack on Egypt’s Coptic Christians.
On January 13, 2013, America was once again forced to watch Muslims mock our U.S. Constitution, as Mustafaa Carroll, Executive Director of CAIR/Dallas-Ft Worth area, stated at an Islamic rally in Austin, Texas: “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.” He also dismissed critics of Sharia law as being “anti-foreign.” But one should also note that numerous current and ex-FBI agents, such as Mike Rolf (‘Muslim Mafia’) and John Guandolo have referred to CAIR offices as “a turnstile for terrorists and their supporters.”
In February 2013, a Syrian born Arab-American woman and psychiatrist, Dr. Wafa Sultan wrote in part in ‘The Rutherford Reader’: “I do not view Islam as a religion. Islam is a political doctrine, which imposes itself by force. Any doctrine whatsoever that calls to kill those who do not believe in it is not a religion.” This same view is held by Stephen Coughlin, Navy War College lecturer, Lt Colonel Matthew Dooley, Joint Forces Staff College, Shireen Burki (JFSC), General William G. Boykin (ex-Commander/US Special Forces), myself and many others across America.
A few years ago, Salman Rushdie gave a lecture on C-SPAN from New York. The complete essence of his message was that when a Muslim moves from the Middle East to any place else, say Shelbyville or Murfreesboro, Tennessee, he is not looking to take advantage of the American way of life to better himself. Rather, he sees himself as part of the advance guard to spread Islam to his new country, whether he arrives legally or illegally; it is long past time that we demand of our leaders the expulsion of all Muslims not holding U.S. citizenship!
Some of the world’s so-called “intellectuals” saw a seeming shift within the ummah/worldwide Islamic community, when The Islamic Society (operates Denmark’s largest mosque) and Minhaj ul Quran (Danish offshoot of a Pakistani anti-blasphemy group) denounced the failed assassination attempt on Lars Hedegaard, an anti-Islam polemicist, and they defended his right to speak freely; however, America and any nation that harbors Muslims should not take away too much hope from this anomaly, because, holistically, an easily estimated 400 million islamofascists across the globe still don’t mind burning or beheading people simply on the charge of blasphemy, adultery, insulting Mohammed or apostasy… and, three-fourths of the remainder stand back and allow it in tacit approval.
America needs a few extremists of Her own to grasp the mantle of truthful, credible leadership… men and women who exhibit various combinations of eloquence, strategic vision, patience, combat record and managerial skills. Remember Senator Barry Goldwater’s words delivered to the 1964 Republican National Convention: “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” This is not to suggest we recruit our own murderous terrorists after the fashion of Mariam Farhat, Palestinian Legislative Council member and “Mother of Martyrs” (died March 17, 2013 in Gaza City), who encouraged three sons to die in suicide attacks against Israel and told her four year old grandson in 2004, “You will be a martyr one day.” It simply means we fight with every means available to save our nation and our freedom, not shrinking from combat in any arena that may prove necessary, as we hope for the emergence of a leader the caliber of Washington, Jefferson and Reagan… a leader who understands that while there may be shades of opinion among Muslims, as a totalitarian system of thought Islam has remained unchanged for 1200 years, and there is no such thing as a peaceful, tolerant, coexistent and “moderate” Islam”!

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?
By Justin O. Smith
Sent: 10/6/2012 12:43 PM
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!

Who Hates Free Speech?

The word “Islamophobia” is often used as a pejorative to describe counterjihadists as racists and/or bigots. A short definition for Islamophobia is the irrational fear of Islam. You have to understand that is exactly the game plan of the theopolitical aspect of Islamic theology; i.e. to strike fear into non-Muslims (kafir) in order to submit to the Quranic authority or to convert. In a Muslim nation a lack of submission may result in a mob killing you or the law handing down a death sentence for blaspheming Islam and Mohammed.
My favorite counterjihad essayist Fjordman deals with Leftist journalists that have gone on a campaign to vilify those that expose the dark nature of Islam. You definitely need to read this essay.

Here are a series of articles questioning the National Security risks that might probably exist between Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The contributors are ACT for America highlighting an Andrew Bostom essay, two articles from WalidShoebat.com and finally the best and the must read article by Danny Jeffrey that points the finger of shame-on-you toward John McCain, John Boehner, Lindsey Graham, Ed Rollins (former Bachmann for Prez Campaign Manager) and Fox News for putting Michelle Bachmann into cement shoes and tossing her in the river to placate political correctness and undoubtedly multiculturalist thinking.
HOW CRAZY IS THAT?

The Rutherford Reader is a free local and weekly newspaper with circulation in the Murfreesboro, TN area as well as 43,000 online subscribers. The Reader’s money base is third party advertising for the Murfreesboro area.
So what, right?
The Reader is a local bastion against Radical Islam in its area making the newspaper a target for Radical Muslims pretending to be moderate and Multicultural Leftists. In the case of Murfreesboro, most of the large circulating Tennessee newspapers rag on the Reader (especially The Tennessean) as the local hate-speech and bigoted media.
The thing is there isn’t an iota of truth to the accusations. The Reader is simply having journalist contributors and perhaps the publisher report on the local Mosque which has deep pocket connections to Radical Islam. Unless you have been in a coma since September 2001 you do know America was attacked by the Radical Muslim transnational terrorist organization known as al Qaeda. The USA has been involved in the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) since 911. So whether bureaucrats in the U.S. government publicly recognize that war or not Islam in its so-called radical form has been at war ever since.
HENCE, after a Mosque engages with Muslim-American organizations that have ties with the Muslim Brotherhood or Hamas or whatever terrorist organization, it is noble for a local newspaper to buck Liberal Multiculturalism and report on Radical Islam and/or the speakers promoting a Radical Islamic agenda for America. AND in case you have been victimized by Muslim Apologists, that Islamic agenda is not pretty or copacetic for Constitutional America especially as related to the Bill of Rights.
One of the contributing journalists to the Reader is Justin O. Smith. Justin is also a defender of the Reader when Muslim Apologists and Multicultural Leftists wrongly go after the Reader rather than say a newspaper like The Tennessean which has been caught lying to support in print Radical Islam in Tennessee.
On Facebook I found such a defense from Justin and I am cross posting it below.

Letters to the Editor…pg 4 of ‘The Rutherford Reader’ and Mrs. Pam King’s excellent article!…

To the Editor:
Last week I sent the following message via Facebook to William Cripps: “I am very concerned that you and your wife have attempted to ruin a local business, The Rutherford Reader. When you contact business people and threaten them if they continue to advertise in The Reader, this is at best very unethical and at worst, just slimy! No one has actually proven that anything printed in The Reader is either hate speech or lies, it is only your opinion.
You certainly do have the right of free speech and so do I. I wonder how the people at ATI in La Vergne would feel if they were aware of your attempts to put a business out of business with unfounded opinions and and (sic) absolutely zero proof? I wonder how the Democratic Committee in Murfreesboro would like what Sara is doing? Are those the tactics they approve of?”
Needless to say, I have not received a response from either of them. I am seriously tired of the bullying! While working on a note to explain myself, I ran across the following
written by a Facebook friend, Dawn Ellen. Dawn has perfectly formalized my thinking so I quote her:
“People who spew the words “hatred” and “bigotry,” when you attempt to enlighten them about the reality of Islam are drowning in ignorance. They are being compliant and complicit in the Islamization of America and the world. They have never studied the Qur’an/Hadiths, the life of Muhammad, or the history of Islam. They only have Liberal sound bites and Islamic propaganda running through their brains. They spew those words because they have no intelligent argument or response. I laugh at their perpetual nonsense and then move on. There is no point in responding, because their brainwashed minds are not open to reasonable and logical debates, but rather they are blind to the truth and will never see it. It is most definitely pitiful.”

Hamas Terrorist Front Group, CAIR Asks Pentagon to Fire Another Anti-Terrorism Trainer, Reza Kahlili
CAIR is continuing its attack of the former double agent Reza Kahlili. For security reasons his name is a pseudonym.
CAIR is an Islamist organization and a part of the Muslim Brotherhood umbrella in North America. Whenever CAIR perceives an individual or group is on the verge of showing the public the true nature of purist Islam subscribed to by organizations such as CAIR they go on the propaganda and lawfare attack to besmirch one’s character.
This is definitely the case of Reza Kahlili!
Below is an article found on sharia unveiled; however I am switching the order of the posts content. Sharia unveiled placed the pro-CAIR PR Newswire complaint on Kahlili then followed it by Kahlili’s response. I believe it sets the tone better to do it the other way around.
Hamas Terrorist Front Group, CAIR Asks Pentagon to Fire Another Anti-Terrorism Trainer, Reza Kahlili

[Remember it is reverse order here]
Related Story By: Reza Kahlili
-The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, demands the Department of
Defense drop me as a lecturer at the Joint Counterintelligence Training
A Monday press release said CAIR sent a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta requesting the dismissal of Reza Kahlili, my pseudonym, “who wrote on an Islamophobic hate site that he renounced Islam and began the quest to find the real God.”
It cited articles I wrote referring to Iranian agents who had coordinated operations out of American mosques and Islamic centers and warning that Iranian agents have infiltrated the United States through the “Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Student Association.”
“This is yet another unfortunate example of our nation’s military and counterterrorism personnel being trained by individuals who weaken America’s security by promoting their own religious and political agendas,” wrote CAIR national Executive Director
Nihad Awad in his letter.
CAIR’s attack surprises me. In becoming a spy for the CIA while a member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, I not only risked my life but those of my loved ones to protect the security of America and the free world and raise awareness of the brutality Iranians suffer under a regime that has no mercy, even for women and children.
As an American citizen, I have the right to convert to whatever religion I wish. I converted to Christianity, finding love and the true God. How is that Islamophobia? Or does CAIR support laws such as those in Iran where converts can be imprisoned or executed for renouncing Islam and finding Christ? Should I be persecuted in the United States because I am now a Christian?
My activity, which CAIR wants censored, focuses on Iranian human rights and the vicious violations of basic decency committed by a tyrannical regime, brutality that has been documented by human rights organizations worldwide.
But more importantly, the Islamic regime, along with its proxies, seeks to destroy Israel and poses a major threat to America and the free world.
Shouldn’t CAIR be more interested in protecting the sanctity of the mosques and, therefore, value my information on how Iranian agents are abusing such worship sites? Or is just stating such facts considered a crime by CAIR and automatically constitutes
Perhaps CAIR does not know that I do not teach about Islam at the Counterintelligence Training Academy. I teach on the activity of the Revolutionary Guards and its intelligence operation.
Does CAIR approve of the Islamic regime in Iran? Does it support imprisonment and torture of men and women who seek freedom? Does it approve of the tens of thousands of executions of political prisoners since the 1979 revolution? Human Rights Watch warned that state hangings in Iran this year could reach more than 1,000.
Does it approve of execution of minors, the rape of children or the stoning of women on the charge of adultery? Does CAIR approve of cutting off hands and feet for stealing? Does CAIR approve of a man having four wives with no legal rights for the women? Does it approve of lashings for women who do not completely adhere to Islamic hijab?
Does CAIR dispute Iran’s support with its terrorist proxies, Hezbollah, Islamic jihad and others or the murderous regime of Syria’s Bashar Assad? Does it dispute that international courts seek the prosecution for terrorist activities committed by members of the Islamic regime, including the current defense minister, Ahmad Vahidi, who is wanted by Interpol for the Jewish Community Center bombing in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1994.
Perhaps CAIR does not know that I worked for the CIA – not only in Iran but in Europe – and with Iranian agents within a mosque. Perhaps CAIR does not know that much of the information that is not disclosed in my articles for security purposes is then given to the FBI. Perhaps CAIR does not know that even today through my contacts with Revolutionary Guard members, I provide information to protect America and the free world.
Is CAIR interested in the security of America, and does it not want to do whatever it can to weed out terrorists posing as ordinary Muslims? Does it not hurt the Islamic community when acts of terror are committed, such as 9/11?
I have detailed my life in my book, “Purchase at Amazon – A Time to Betray, and I challenge CAIR to read it and determine whether I promote Islamophobia.
So I ask: What is it that has CAIR and the appeasers of the regime so infuriated? Is it perhaps the dream of a free Iran?
Reza Kahlili is a pseudonym for a former CIA operative in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and the author of the award winning book, Amazon – A Time to Betray. He is a senior Fellow with EMPact America, a member of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and teaches at the U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA).
WASHINGTON, July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the Department of Defense (DoD) to drop an anti-Islam lecturer at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA) in Elkridge, Md., who wrote on an Islamophobic hate site that he “renounced Islam and began the quest to find the real God.” (reza kahlili:”Why I Renounce Islam and Choose Christ)(reza kahlili:” WND)(reza kahlili: 8/24/11)
That lecturer, “Reza Kahlili,” a pseudonym for a man who says he is a former CIA operative in Iran, also claims that Iranian agents are “coordinating operations out of [American] mosques and Islamic centers,” that Iran already has nuclear weapons, and that Iranian agents have infiltrated the United States through the “Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Students Association.” (Daily Caller, 7/22/12; Washington Times, 10/27/11, Los Angeles Times, 7/6/12, American Thinker, 2/23/12)
A program coordinator for Iran instruction at JCITA confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that Kahlili is a paid lecturer for the DoD-chartered academy. His lectures are audio-only, allegedly to protect his identity. The newspaper called Kahlili “one of the most influential and outspoken voices in the U.S. advocating the overthrow of the Iranian government.”
“This is yet another unfortunate example of our nation’s military and counterterrorism personnel being trained by individuals who weaken America’s security by promoting their own religious and political agendas,” wrote CAIR national Executive Director Nihad Awad in a letter sent to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.
CAIR chapters in Florida recently held news conferences in Tampa and Pembroke Pines to ask the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to stop using a notorious anti-Muslim bigot as a counterterrorism trainer.

Last month, CAIR welcomed a decision by the U.S. military to stop using a target depicting a Muslim woman wearing a religious head scarf (hijab) and verses from the Quran to train Navy SEALs at the new close quarters combat range at Joint Base Fort Story in Virginia Beach, Va.
CAIR also recently called on the Department of Defense to dismiss an instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Va., who taught fellow officers that only a “total war” on Islam would protect America, that they should use “Hiroshima” tactics, target civilian populations, and abandon the Geneva Conventions. The instructor of that course was later relieved of his teaching duties.

The Pentagon statement of support for Kahlili
By Reza Kahlili
July 25th, 2012
The Pentagon provided TheDC with a statement of support for Kahlili, Wednesday.
“We can confirm that Mr. Reza Kahlili, who has specialized counterintelligence expertise, occasionally lectures at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA),” Pentagon spokesman James Gregory wrote in an email to TheDC. “He’s one of many guest lecturers called upon by JCITA for specific subject matter knowledge. His experiences provide valuable insight to trainees, and he keeps his personal religious beliefs out of the classroom. He does not lecture on or about Islam or any religious treatise, and his personal beliefs are his own.”

Frank Gaffney defends Michele Bachmann for her call for an investigation of Radical Islam and perhaps the Muslim Brotherhood in particular for infiltrating the U.S. government in areas of National Security of sensitivity.
Gaffney also points out Rep. Keith Ellison who publicly decries the Muslim Brotherhood is misleading the public on the Ellison assertion. This points out the temerity of the Dems attacking Bachmann.
AND Gaffney also points out that there are prominent Republicans also criticizing Bachmann. This exposes Establishment Republicans, RINOs and/or GOP Dunderheads when it comes to Radical Islam and the USA.
America’s ‘Iron Lady’
By Frank Gaffney, Jr.
Jul 23, 2012
Movie theaters across America have recently called to mind former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, a woman whose visionary leadership and fortitude – particularly in the fight against Soviet Communism – earned her the sobriquet “the Iron Lady.”
Lady Thatcher’s partner in dispatching that toxic ideology to the “ash-heap of history,” Ronald Reagan, famously declared in 1961 – at a time when the USSR was still very much a going concern – that “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” Today, it is threatened by another totalitarian ideology that some have aptly described as “communism with a god”: the supremacist Islamic doctrine known as shariah.
Fortunately, it turns out that, as we confront our time’s most imminent threat to freedom, we have found America’s Iron Lady: Congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota. Her Thatcheresque qualities are evident in the fearless and visionary leadership she is providing in opposing shariah’s most formidable champions, the Muslim Brotherhood.
In particular, Rep. Bachmann – whose training as a tax attorney has prepared her well for the painstaking business of studying and mastering arcane organizational, financial and other relationships that are at the core of the stealthy subversion the Brotherhood calls “civilization jihad.” Her experience raising 28 of her own and foster children has steeled her against the name-calling and worse that have met her efforts to bring those skills to bear to expose and defeat the jihadists, wherever they may be.
Good thing. For, at the moment, Michele Bachmann is not facing mere name-calling but outright character assassination. She has been singled out for special treatment despite the fact that she was one of five Members of Congress (the others being Reps. Louie Gohmert of Texas, Trent Franks of Arizona, Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia and Tom Rooney of Florida) who had the temerity to send five federal Inspectors General formal requests for investigations into Muslim Brotherhood influence operations inside our government – a threat every bit as dangerous as was the communist subversion of a generation ago.
It is, of course, no accident that Mrs. Bachmann is being subjected to such vilification by the Islamists, their allies on the Left and in the establishment media’s amen chorus. As a principled, articulate and wildly popular Tea Party and conservative leader, she is a prime target for electoral defeat by her political foes. These include her fellow Minnesotan, Rep. Keith Ellison, the “first Muslim congressman” who launched the initial attack on our Iron Lady. More on him in a moment.
Regrettably, the Minnesota congresswoman has also been savaged by prominent figures in her own party. Some have been motivated by a desire to exonerate one of the individuals identified in the five legislators’ letter to the State Department’s Inspector General: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin. Others seem determined to deflect or at least deny the problem of which she appears to be but one example and a symptom: There are individuals with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood inside or at least influencing the White House, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Departments of Justice, Defense and Homeland Security, as well as Foggy Bottom.
With respect to the former, long-time federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy noted in a brilliant expose posted at National Review Online on July 21, the question is not whether Ms. Abedin has committed a crime but should she have a security clearance? The State Department’s own guidelines would appear to deny access to classified information to a person who has, as she does through living and deceased family members, “foreign associations that could create…a heightened risk of foreign exploitation, inducement, manipulation, pressure, or coercion.” [(For more on those troubling associations and their implications for U.S. policy, see a new Center for Security Policy report entitled “Ties That Bind? The Views and Agenda of Huma Abedin’s Islamist Mother” (http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/p19045.xml).]
With respect to efforts to dismiss as “dangerous” or baseless concerns about a possible, far-larger problem with individuals who have connections to the Muslim Brotherhood shaping U.S. policy toward that organization and enabling its rising power, what can one say? There is abundant evidence that indicates such concerns are warranted (including that found in Parts 8 and 9 of the Center for Security Policy’s online curriculum at www.MuslimBrotherhoodinAmerica.com – a resource drawn upon by the five legislators). Unless and until the critics – on Capitol Hill, in the media and elsewhere – perform the sort of due-diligence that has characterized the approach taken by Mrs. Bachmann and her colleagues, their authority on the matter must be questioned.
That applies particularly to Keith Ellison who claims not to know much about the Muslim Brotherhood, let alone have ties to it. Counter-terrorism expert Patrick Poole, however, shreds such assertions in a July 22 article at PJMedia (http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/07/21/rep-keith-ellison-rewrites-history-on-his-muslim-brotherhood-cair-ties/) that establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that he, too, has – as Rep. Bachmann has observed – myriad, longstanding associations with Muslim Brotherhood organizations. These include what the government has established is the Brotherhood’s “overt arm” in America, the Muslim American Society (which paid for Mr. Ellison’s 2008 religious pilgrimage (hajj) to Saudi Arabia), and the Council on American Islamic Relations. CAIR was proven twice in federal court to be a front for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian franchise, the designated terrorist organization Hamas.
Michelle Bachmann’s response to her critics is vintage Thatcher: “I will not be silenced.” We cannot allow America’s Iron Lady or her courageous colleagues to be silenced – or otherwise punished for their needed leadership in countering the Muslim Brotherhood.
(C) 2011 Center for Security Policy
The Center for Security Policy is a non-profit, non-partisan national security organization that specializes in identifying policies, actions, and resource needs that are vital to American security and then ensures that such issues are the subject of both focused, principled examination and effective action by recognized policy experts, appropriate officials, opinion leaders, and the general public.
The Center was founded in 1988 and has worked to great effect since then in the establishment of successful national security policies through the use of all elements of national power – diplomatic, informational, military, and economic strength.
The philosophy of “Peace through Strength” is not a slogan for military might but a belief that America’s national power must be preserved and properly used for it holds a unique global role in maintaining peace and stability.
Today’s national security threats compel us to ensure we are strong and prepared. We as a nation must also work to undermine the ideological foundations of totalitarianism and Islamist extremism with at least as much skill, discipline and tenacity as President Reagan employed against Communism to prevail in the Cold War.
The role of the Center for Security Policy is to help our government, countrymen and other freedom-loving nations conceptualize, conduct and succeed on this front. The Center’s dedicated … READ THE REST
Yesterday I posted “Islam is Peace – NOT!” My post was inspired by a Raymond Ibrahim article entitled “Graphic Video: Muslims Slaughter Convert to Christianity in Tunisia” which I cross posted directly beneath my thoughts. JUST AS A WARNING: If you go to video on Ibrahim’s page or to the video on my page it is extremely gruesome and graphic.
I just found out from another Ibrahim post that he has been accused of posting bad information. Storyline as the accusers claim goes that the man beheaded was not in Tunisia, but was is Iraq or Syria. AND that the man was not beheaded for being a Christian but for being either an American spy or a Sunni executing a Shi’ite.
Now this important to my post because I use the graphic video as a connection to Radical Islam in the Middle East or in Tunisia’s case in the Maghreb, then noting that Radical Islam flows from the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabism to America in the guise of Muslim-American organizations that claim to be moderate Islam and/or the representatives of Islam to Muslim-Americans on a broad scale.
If Ibrahim has his facts wrong then I have an “oops” that comes across as flagrant bigotry against the practitioners of Islam in America.
Fortunately for me Ibrahim speaks Arabic and exposes the accusations as the work of Muslim Apologists twisting the story to make Islam look good and anti-jihad writers look bad.
