Western Leftists and Muslim apologists continue the idiotic propaganda of blaming all the ills of violence in Muslim dominated lands on Israel. Check this out!
Exploiting Christian Persecution to Demonize Israel
By Raymond Ibrahim
November 5, 2013
Originally Human Events
What’s worse than the silence of Western Christians concerning the Muslim persecution of their coreligionists in the Islamic world? Answer: Cynically exploiting that persecution for a political agenda—in the case of a recent Daily Beast article, to excoriate the state of Israel and its supporters.
Titled “Why Won’t the West Defend Middle Eastern Christians?” and written by Diarmaid MacCulloch, a Fellow of St. Cross College, the article touches on the persecution of Christians, but primarily as a springboard to attack American Christian support for Israel. Consider the following excerpt:
… one of the silences which I find most frustrating is precisely the lack of noise from Western Christians about the fate of ancient Christianities in the Middle East. At the heart of the problems in the Middle East is seven decades of unresolved conflict between Israel and Palestine…
Yes, Western silence vis-à-vis the plight of Mideast Christians is as real as it is frustrating, but exactly how is MacCulloch able to jump to the conclusion that the Arab-Israeli conflict is “the heart” of the problem?
What about the well-documented Islamic doctrines that codify the suppression and persecution of Christians and other non-Muslims?
What about the documented fact that Christians under Islam have been persecuted for more than 1300 years before the existence of the state of Israel, in complete accordance to said doctrines?
What about the fact that Christians are currently being persecuted in every corner of the Islamic world, as documented in my monthly “Muslim Persecution of Christians” series—including diverse countries such as Pakistan, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, and every corner of Africa—and not just the Middle East?
Surely this is the true “heart of the problem”—and not the tiny and relatively new state of Israel.
Of course, to thinkers like MacCulloch, all the above points concerning Islamic hostility for Christians are not open to consideration, for they portray Islam in a negative light and so must be false (see Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians for abundant documentation otherwise.)
Instead, MacCulloch offers politically correct boilerplate statements, such as: “Christians are scapegoated for their faith by an extremist militant minority of Muslims, who betray their own religion by intolerance, and who make other Muslims ashamed of what is happening.”
Indeed, it is MacCulloch who betrays himself by characterizing Islam as a “tolerant” faith when any moderately objective reading of doctrine and history—made manifest in daily headlines—all prove the reverse.
Likewise, instead of delving into and exposing the true “heart of the problem,” MacCulloch critiques Protestant eschatology and U.S. support for Israel, the consequences of which “have been particularly dire for the traditional Christianities of the Middle East.”
It would have been more useful and sincere if he had addressed more glaring questions, for example:
o When the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters in Egypt torched some 80 churches and murdered Christians, including children—not to mention all the other anti-Christian atrocities they committed before and since—was that because of Israel or something else?
o When Islamic rebels in Syria terrorize Christians, behead their priests and pastors, break Christian crosses and smash icons—all while shouting Islamic slogans—is that because of Israel or something more innate?
o When Muslims in Indonesia illegally close off churches forcing Christians to celebrate Christmas in the streets—only to have cow dung and urine hurled at them—is that because of Israel, or something more ingrained?
o When the Nigerian Islamic group Boko Haram destroys hundreds of churches and slaughters thousands of Christians, and when, on the other side of Africa, the Somali Islamic group Al-Shabaab terrorizes and beheads converts to Christianity—is that because of Israel or something more doctrinal?
o Indeed, when Christian minorities in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip are abducted and forced to convert to Islam, is that because of Israel or the elephant in the room?
MacCulloch is correct about one thing: many Muslims do hate Israel. But that hate, far from prompting the persecution of Christians, is actually a byproduct of the same hostility Islamic supremacism engenders for all non-Muslims. The reason it is much more viral for Israel is because the Jewish state is in a unique position of authority over Muslims unlike vulnerable Christian minorities (as fully explained in this article).
The theme of silence permeates MacCulloch’s Daily Beast article—specifically, that Western Christians are silent concerning the plight of their persecuted brethren. This silence is true and troubling—and many mainstream American Protestant denominations are certainly guilty of it.
However, instead of exploiting the sufferings of Christian minorities simply to scapegoat Israel—ironically a nation that is in an existential struggle against the very same ideology and forces that persecute Christians—it might have been better for MacCulloch himself to be silent.

On October 10th I received an email from ACT for America that I wish I had read much earlier than today. The email introduces a tongue-in-cheek video that exposes that Islam is NOT a religion of peace! A clue about the nature of the video is that was produced by Acts17Apologetics and placed on their YouTube Channel. Look out Muslim Apologists and Leftist dhimmi apologists, you are about to be exposed as the red-headed stepchild.
“Shopping while non-Muslim”

As the video below points out, in places like Nairobi, Kenya, “shopping while non-Muslim” can get you tortured and murdered.
Last year, an obscure video somehow whipped countless Muslims around the world into a frenzy.
After the gruesome jihadist attack in Kenya, nary a peep was heard from most Muslim leaders and organizations around the world, including here in America. Reformist Muslims like Zuhdi Jasser and Tawfik Hamid who denounced the attack were the exception.
The inescapable conclusion is that, for countless Muslims and their leaders, the lives of “infidels” count for nothing compared to 14 minutes of video that nobody had even seen.
VIDEO: The Nairobi Mall Massacre
Published on Sep 28, 2013
Western leaders and the media assure us that the recent terrorist attack at a Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya has nothing to do with Islam, and that the terrorist group al-Shabaab is violating the commands of Allah and Muhammad. But what happens when we open the Qur’an to see what it teaches? We find that Islamic history has been repeating itself for fourteen centuries.

Ask a Muslim: Why is the Jesus of the New Testament so peaceful offering a choice of life in Christ or eternal separation from God in the next world in rejecting Jesus while Muhammad of the Quran offered violent repression or physical death in this world for being rejected by non-Muslims?
Ask a Muslim: What is the difference between a Christian history violence and compulsive conversion outside the commands of the New Testament and Islamic violent imperial conquest followed by offering the conquered a compulsory decision of converting, submitting to a repressive lifestyle that submits to Islamic rules or death under direct command of the Quran and Hadith?
I ask these questions because a noticeably upset non-Muslim has written a Facebook Note entitled “The Truth about islam and trying to get 1 muslim to answer a simple question. If you ask are you an islamphob(e)) or islam-realist!” The post does not really ask that “simple question”. It does enumerate a list of atrocities committed by Muslims under the direction of Islam’s holy writings – the Quran, Hadith and Sira (Sunna). Then the author of the Note quite correctly points out New Testament warnings of believing false prophets and of adding and subtracting from the Word of God. The author’s enumeration is that which makes this post relevant for people to read. Indeed, these are things that Christian ministries and Churches need to grow a Gospel background to expose the nature of Islam as opposed to Christian teaching.
Muslims Apologists have learned a Leftist tactic (See Also HERE). When confronted with reality a Muslim Apologist will divert attention from the real answer to a question or a stated accusation that is derived directly from Islam’s holy writings. That Muslim Apologist diversion or obfuscation usually likes to point out something like the history of the spread of Christianity is not absent of violence. AND that is true; however the Muslim Apologist will attempt to dominate a conversation by not allowing response to point out Christian violence in converting people is in direct violation of the Word of God found in the New Testament while Muslim violence in converting people is a REQUIREMENT of Islamic holy writings including the Quran considered the direct word of Allah by Muslims. Muslim Apologists have a host of other diversions and obfuscations to confuse the issue of Islamic reality.
Just a heads up I am performing a spell check on the Facebook Note because there is a few grammar/spelling issues indicating it was written hastily in frustration. A frustration by the way that I concur with. There are certain words intentionally un-capitalized which the author explains. I am will not change that grammar and if I do it was an accident except in cases of the beginning of a sentence. I apologize to the author capitalizing at the beginning of a sentence my quirky self is forced to do.

The Truth about islam and trying to get 1 muslim to answer a simple question. If you ask are you an islamphob(e) or islam-realist!
Islam is a political agenda, not a religion

Islam is a political agenda, not a religion
Friends over the last two weeks I must have had “conversations” with over 100 muslims from around the world. Then add to that some liberal – progressive sympathizers of islam. I have asked simple questions and not 1 muslim or appeaser of islam have answer or refuted my charges! Sadly the perversion of the Torah (Old Testament) and the New Testament by these Godless people is amazing! Wait, I use the word amazing when in the bible it talks about false prophecy. Matthew 7:15 “Watch out Friends for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. Deu 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
Then I close with this passage in Revelation 22:18-19 New King James: Revelation 22:18-19 King James Version (KJV)
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
The Torah was written and finished around 3-4000 BC The New Testament around 40-60AD. Muslims and their appeasers will say that allah was there at the beginning. I point out that the qua’ran was written around 550-600 years after this passage, thus proving that the qua`ran is a complete lie!
Then some said that Jesus and muhammad were one in the same. Which I not only laugh at, I refute with this: Jesus was intelligent, loving, kind, merciful, and “THE SON OF GOD!” muhammad was the following: was a murderer, torturer, adulterer, rapist, con man, thief, pedophile, war monger, and a psychopath. In his delusional state, Satan aka Lucifer came to see that this evil creature, the evilest to ever walk the earth was a complete idiot as well. So the fallen angel spoke to muhammad and muhammad believed the great deceiver and Lucifer aka Satan gave muhammad a delusional vile image to justify muhammad evil and perverted life. You can take that to the bank muslims as this refute is the total 100% truth. Oh and by the way, islam for the 1,000,000 time is not a religion! It’s a political agenda run by murdering thugs with the ambition to take over the world and the expense and death to all and any non-muslim! 1,400 years of non-human actions by muslims prove this!
Jesus is 180 degrees different from muhammad, it’s the difference between Day and night, good and evil! Jesus is Day and Good, muhammad is night and evil.
I will again go on the record to say that the Fallen Angel Satan aka Lucifer saw muhammad in one of his delusional states and came to muhammad as allah to not only deceive muhammad but to justify the most evil and vile man whom ever lived muhammad.
I will now go into the first 3 commandments That God spoke of Moses, given to Moses from God on Mt Sinai:
And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Obviously muslims by following muhammad and islam prove daily that they are not following these 3 basic commandments and are coveting false idols.
Friends I’ve been called an “Islamophob(e)” when in reality I am an “Islam-realist!” I where that badge – proudly.
Every time I point out the 1,400 of atrocities to mankind by muslims and followers of islam, no refutes from them. They just pervert and change the subject.
When I mention the 45 Nigerian Christian children butchered in their Christian school, the Coptic Christians slain in Egypt because they are Christians, The Israeli Family ambushed and brutally murdered of which one was a pregnant mother, the Hindi and Buddhists slain, the muslims in Elizabeth NJ and Dearborn MI along with muslims around the world dancing in the streets after the Towers fell on 9/11/2001 and 3,000 were dead! They just mostly ignore and some have the guile to say, it’s all in allah’s plan! What a disgusting answer, no remorse and ignoring these facts as usual.
Friends if we don’t stand up against the islamic tyranny which I barely touched on, there will be more honor killings, murders, beheadings, kidnappings, torture, female genital mutilation, pedophile, gang rape, etc.
Friends in all cultures their all always some evil and wrong doers. But if you study islam in its book the qua`ran and it’s right in there which tells its followers to do these things and worse to the nonbeliever, the infidel. Muslims are commanded by the qua`ran to lie to us and when they are in the minority blend in and be nice and wait, wait until you are in the majority and then you can be your true self.
Islam to me is nothing more than a political agenda, hell bent on total world domination at the cost of all infidel’s lives and processions. Get a qua`ran, study history as everything because said is 100% fact.
I also purposely will not capitalize islam, muhammad or allah as they don’t deserve it!

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?

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.
Posted August 12, 2012
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.”
