Is Obama the Blame for rising Islamic Terrorism in USA?

By John R. Houk

© November 28, 2015

Here are some incomplete thoughts on Barack Hussein Obama from the top of my head. I call my thoughts incomplete because I doubt my memory is complete or exhaustive.

One of Obama’s stops on his apology tour was Cairo, Egypt. There he denigrated the USA and made sure the Muslim Brotherhood was present for his speech. Later Obama abandoned Mubarak who had been a loyal friend to America’s agenda in the Middle East. Then Obama embraced the Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi for Egypt’s office of President who actually won his election by a narrow margin.

I recall Obama has invited Muslim Brotherhood members to talk to the Obama Administration for some kind of meeting (See Also HERE). Also Obama has had Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers as a part of his staff or advisors in some form or fashion (See also HERE).

The current military government of Egypt has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist entity and yet Obama is still hesitant to also add the MB to America’s terrorist list (See HERE and HERE). Now I have found out that a Jihadist defector – Sheikh Nabil Naeem – in an interview with Patrick Poole and Steve Coughlin, has fingered a connection between the MB and al Qaeda. The same defector has insinuated an MB link to wait for it … ISIS. Also Sheikh Nabil announced the MB’s so-called renunciation of violence was a lie.

Obama imported 1,682 Syrian refugees for fiscal year 2015 and officially 10,000 (maybe more) are slated for fiscal year 2016. Since 96% of these slated refugees are Sunni Muslims, the same brand as ISIS claims to be, and roughly 13% are sympathetic to radicalization; can anyone logically believe a hotbed of terrorism is being brought to the USA?

Combine this with the known 82 radical Islamic Mosques (See Below) in America preaching Quranic hatred toward non-Muslims – meaning death to America, no constitutional but Sharia Law – what makes anyone think the common unrest inflicted on Europe will soon be seen in the United States of America? Is Obama support for Islamist organizations and Mosques in the USA the beginning of European-style Islamic terrorism in America?

Posted by Ryan Mauro

Published on Nov 26, 2015


Clarion Project’s National Security Analyst, Prof. Ryan Mauro, appears on “Fox & Friends” to discuss its identification of over 80 radical Islamic organizations in the U.S., particularly mosques.

Mauro explains the need to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and the extremism of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia; Islamic Society of Boston; Masjid At-Taqwa in New York and the North American Islamic Trust that owns mosques in over 40 states.

Airdate: November 25, 2015.

The four organizations discussed in the segment are:

o Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia. Shocking video showed its imam preaching that Muslims should be first in line to pick up weapons for violent jihad and characterizing the West as an adversary. The Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center is involved in prison outreach in Washington, D.C.

o Islamic Society of Boston (and its Cultural Center), which have significant Muslim Brotherhood links and extremist histories. A Muslim activist who fled Egypt to get away from the Brotherhood’s radicalism told the Clarion Project how he was shocked to find its ideology at the mosque.

o Masjid At-Taqwa of New York, led by the extremely radical and influential cleric Siraj Wahhaj. In 2011, he advised Muslims to stop talking about sharia because “we’re not there yet.”

o North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), an organization that owns many mosques across the country. The Justice Department says it is an “entity” of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, a sub-division secretly established to support the Hamas terrorist group.

The segment follows the Daily Caller’s creation of a map of over 80 radical mosques based on Clarion’s research. This is about four percent of the estimated 2,106 mosques in the U.S., the news site wrote.

In addition to those 83 sites, there are many other Islamist organizations operating in the U.S. and mosques due to be written about. You can learn about Islamist groups in your state by searching the Islamist Organizations in America section of our website that is continuously updated.

The North American Islamic Trust’s (NAIT’s) website says it owns mosques in 42 states and has stated that it owns the titles to over 325 properties.

Click here for a partial list of mosques owned by NAIT

In January, a prominent Muslim leader in the United Kingdom with links to the Muslim Brotherhood estimated that half of the mosques in America were founded by Brotherhood members.

Senator Ted Cruz has introduced important legislation to help get the Muslim Brotherhood designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The House version of the bill was introduced by Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and is now endorsed by five additional representatives.

We encourage readers to ask their congressmen and Senators (and presidential candidates) for their statements on this legislation and/or their general position on designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group.

Global Massacre and its Root Cause

By Shamim Masih

Sent: 11/22/2015 1:11 AM

ISLAMABAD: After the recent Paris, attack, I had a chance to speak on a TV live show on Roze TV [], “Debate with Nasir” [Shamim in Urdu 11/14/15]. I was among the three panelists, one political analyst Jan Achakzi [ and Wikipedia] and another was a journalist. Unfortunately instead of criticizing those attacks in Paris and this type of terror activities in the world, those two were arguing in the favor of terrorist and giving reasons.

Since I am writing, my struggle is against this mind set, it is not a matter or fight against Islam or its terrorist organizations like Al-Qaida, Taliban, ISIS, Laskher-e-Tiybba, Jeshe-e-Mohammad, etc., etc. We are fighting against the mind set and its proclamation. Though it is said that every Muslim is not terrorist and not directly involved in these organizations, however most of them are having the same mind set. We are a witness to many incidents/persecutions against minorities in my country. In Pakistan the discriminatory activities against the marginalized portion of the society clearly shows the mindset of the Islamic proclamation.

Since 9/11 attacks in USA there are a series of attacks in different areas and subsequently attacks on the bases of those organizations in the world. Many of the people give baseless excuses but forget that in every act [the] tool is from the Muslim faith. I want to ask them why Muslims are involved in these type of activities around the world, in Philistine [Blog Editor: I’m fairly certain Shamim means Palestine], Kashmir, some African countries, Middle East and other parts of the world. (Genesis 16:11-12 [NKJV – Referencing Ishmael]) Europeans and Americans have to think before doing any humanitarian activity for Muslims, like taking in these Syrian and Egyptian refugees. Muslims are enjoying every single right in the name of humanity but not ready to give liberty to other religions in their countries. They (Muslims) go and preach Islam in another country but don’t allow [others] to read the Bible in Saudi Arabia.

We have seen this practice and one Muslim religious scholar Javed Ahmad Ghamidi [WikipediaBlog Editor: Interestingly Ghamidi’s endorsement of violent Jihad is related fighting against oppression and unbelievers. Oppression is fought by keeping order; meaning Islamic Supremacism and unbelievers ruling over Muslims. Interesting reads HERE and HERE] endorsed and gave the solid root cause of these terrorist activities. Javed Ahmad Ghamidi said that the root cause of terrorism that is being committed by some Muslims today is the religious thought which is being preached in the Muslim madrassas [Merriam-Webster] and being propagated through their political movements. Almost every single madrassa and religious scholar is teaching the four main doctrines of their religious thought. They may not be doing it publicly, but they are doing it nevertheless – they surely are!

First: polytheism, kuffar [Wikipedia], or apostasy (someone who abandons Islam) committed anywhere in the world, they are all punishable by death [WikiIslam, Religion of Peace and Answering-Islam] and we [i.e. the Muslims] have the right to implement this punishment.

Secondly: they preach that non-Muslims were born to be subjugated [Breaking Israel News, Political Islam and Raymond Ibrahim]. None other than Muslims have the right to govern. And if there is someone ruling, every non-Muslim government is illegitimate. We shall overthrow any such government whenever we have the capacity.

The third teaching is that all the Muslims of the world should be under the rule of a single Islamic government that is called The Caliphate [Wikipedia, BBC and Julia Voelker McQuaid]. [Even] Their independent states have no legitimacy.

The fourth doctrine is that the modern nation state is the form of kuffar and there is no room in Islam for it.

These are the four basic tenets of current religious thought. The Pakistani government and its citizens should confront the current religious thought, this religious narrative.

It is to appreciate that the education system of the religious seminaries (madrassas) violate a humans’ rights. Any specialized education in any discipline cannot be forced onto a child. It is the right, the very basic right, of every child to have twelve years of broad based education. Thereafter, he may choose to become a scholar or a scientist. Every Muslim religious seminary works on the principle of transforming a 5-7 years old child into a religious scholar. No one has the right to do this; or to force them to become a doctor or an engineer.

After a broad based education of 12 years, [Muslims], many choose to become whatever they may wish to. This practice must be abandoned. For this to take effect the civil society must prepare itself and people must educate themselves.

The Muslims government must be pressurized not to allow any institution to take students for specialization before twelve years of broad based education. Or we need to draw a line before any humanitarian activities.

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih

A Band-Aid On a Bullet Wound

Justin writes some insights on Muslim refugees in the USA.

A Band-Aid On a Bullet Wound

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 11/21/2015 1:44 PM

Temporarily stopping the influx of Syrian and Iraqi refugees into America in order to counter Islamic terrorism is like placing a Band-Aid on a bullet wound. Still, it is a good first step, and American families, who understand that Islamic terrorism is not isolated to some few “radical” groups like Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and the Islamic State, were well represented on November 16th and 19th, when at least thirty-one U.S. Governors and the House of Representatives set course to block President Obama’s plan to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees into America next year.

By Tuesday, after the Paris terror attacks, twenty-eight governors were saying that Syrian refugees are not welcome in their state, and by Thursday, the House of Representatives voted 289-127 in favor of a bill that requires “greater scrutiny” of Syrian and Iraqi refugees.

Secretary of State John Kerry is advocating that 65,000 Syrian refugees be brought in next year. And Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton states that we must accept no less than 100,000.

If the House bill should fail in the Senate, all U.S. Governors should follow Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s example. He issued an executive order authorizing “all departments, budget units, agencies, offices, entities and officers of the executive branch of the State of Louisiana … to utilize all lawful means to prevent the resettlement of Syrian refugees … while this Order is in effect.” The House should also revisit the matter in any upcoming spending bill, even if it means shutting down the government.

Most Americans, many of our leaders as well, are aware that terrorists infiltrating groups of refugees are only part of the problem. They are not speaking of imaginary space-aliens, when they cognitively and logically reason that the ideological doctrines within Islam, such as the mandated perpetual war between the House of Islam and the House of War (non-Muslims) and the supposed supremacy of Islam, creates the prime motivation for the endemic violence of Islam. Americans understand that the terrorists are found in the ranks of converts like Carlos Bledsoe, second and third generation U.S. Muslims like Anwar al-Awlaki and refugees like the Tsarnaev brothers; and, as such, it certainly does not make any sense to import tens of thousands of more potential terrorists, in the middle of a generational and civilizational war between Islamic and Western principles.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said that we shouldn’t be accepting “any Syrian refugees without complete assurance those we are welcoming intend us no harm”, but when dealing with the agents of Islam, “complete assurance” would be a false assurance. One cannot offer an assurance against Muslims insidiously infiltrating any neighborhood, as they frequent ballgames, movies and restaurants and act like normal citizens, until they unleash bloodbath upon bloodbath, just like the Abdeslam brothers did in France, terrorist bomber Ramzi Yousef did at the World Trade Center in 1993, nineteen terrorists did on 9/11 and Abdulazeez did at the Chattanooga Naval facility.

Late Tuesday night, eight Syrian men were arrested in Honduras using stolen Greek passports. They were headed for the U.S., and they didn’t speak a word of Greek.

And, Sen. Rand Paul recently pointed out that two Iraqi Al Qaeda members were caught in Bowling Green, KY in 2009, as they attempted to buy Stinger missiles. He also noted the scores of Somalians who came here as “refugees” and then returned to Somalia to fight for Boko Haram.

From the G-20 conference in Turkey, President Obama stated: “… a religious test for [people] fleeing from a war-torn country … is not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests for our compassion.” But, on November 19th, Speaker Ryan defended this legislation, which was supported by 47 Democrats, saying, “It’s a security test, not a religious test.”

Obama revealed himself once more to be an arrogant, condescending, hypocritical liar, since he led the legal battle to deport the Romeike family, German Christians, last year. A judge had acknowledged they were escaping religious persecution and initially granted them asylum, but Obama demanded their return to Germany.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott penned a letter to Obama that read “American humanitarian compassion could be exploited to expose Americans to similar deadly danger” (i.e. Paris attacks), and he also stated that the federal government cannot guarantee the Syrian refugees would not contain a significant number of potential terrorists. “As such, opening our door to them irresponsibly exposes our fellow Americans to unacceptable peril.”

Isn’t keeping murderers out of America and defending America our leaders’ first duty?

On Nov. 16th, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told radio host Hugh Hewitt: “I don’t trust this administration to effectively vet the people that they’re asking us to take in. we need to put the safety and security of the American people first.”

The security screening cannot be too precise and accurate, notwithstanding the fact that it takes 18 to 24 months. As many officials, like Rep. Bob Goodblatte (R) have observed, we cannot thoroughly screen someone, when we don’t have access to their actual records, due to the war.

Please also note that last year the Obama administration unilaterally relaxed the security assessments of an untold number of “refugees” who confessed to providing “limited material support” to terror groups.

Testifying on Capitol Hill last month, FBI Director James Comey once again acknowledged that database “gaps” seriously limit the U.S.’s ability to properly screen Syrian refugees: “If someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria … reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing showing up because we have no record of them.”

Senator Chuck Schumer, a top Democrat, is now saying, “We may need a pause in our refugee program.”

Resettle these “refugees” in Muslim majority nations. Let them go to Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Emirates, the five wealthiest countries on the Arabian Peninsula, which have not accepted a single refugee to date.

Aside from all of this, something is also horribly wrong with our passport tracking system. Terrorists from America and Europe are bragging about how easy it is to travel to Islamic enclaves and return, just like Paris terrorist Abdelhamid Abaaoud and Abdulazeez, who murdered the U.S. soldiers in Chattanooga, not to mention visa overstays.

America should not fall sway to Obama’s false piety, as he spoke at the G-20 conference of Syrian parents, children and orphans. Look at how easily and naturally Muslims booed and shouted “Allahu Akbar” at a soccer game on November 18th in Turkey, when a moment of silence was called for the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks. Understand the prevalence of the “eye for an eye” philosophy ingrained in Islamic culture and applied against any perceived wrong, at the slightest provocation, across the entire world, from France to Mali, despite the fact their Islamic doctrines have created their own misery. And then, rather than open the door to thousands of more potential and active terrorists, remember American parents and children murdered on 9/11 and at Boston — American children orphaned — and act forcefully and effectively to ensure something similar or worse will never happen on our watch again: Press America’s leaders to halt all Muslim immigration now.

Creating ISIS and Captagon

Hat Tip: Tony Newbill

November 23, 2015

It has been some time since contributor pseudonym Tony Newbill has sent something to dig my teeth into. Tony usually deals with Conspiracy Theory issues; however this time it seems his email is a bit closer to Conspiracy rather than Theory.

The first link in the email is to a Youtube video of Ben Swann talking about proof obtained from Judicial Watch that the Obama Administration was instrumental in creating the viability of the Islamic terrorist organization ISIS/Daesh.

Benjamin “Ben” Swann (born July 17, 1978) is an American journalist. He has worked in New Mexico, Texas and Ohio.[1] While at WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio, he produced a fact-checking series entitled Reality Check, which gave him national coverage for his reporting about controversial issues. Swann announced he was leaving WXIX-TV on May 31, 2013,[2]and on May 30, 2013, he said he would launch a crowd source funded “Truth In Media” to continue production of his show through a Chicago production team.[3] In June 2015, he joined CBS46 (WGCL-TV) in Atlanta as evening news anchor.[4] READ THE REST (Ben Swann; Wikipedia; This page was last modified on 11/13/15 00:08)

Published by Ben Swann

Published on Nov 19, 2015

There is so much debate over how the U.S. and other nations will stop ISIS but can these leaders be trusted? Ben Swann exposes secret DOD documents that prove the U.S. wanted ISIS to emerge in Syria.

And now to the next link in the Tony Newbill. The link is to an Inquisitor news story by Louis Babcock about how ISIS is using an addictive pill called Captagon. Evidently the Captagon has been around for some time. According to the Inquisitor article it gives one the euphoric feeling of invincibility.

For a history of Captagon’s original purpose Wikipedia has a good article. There you discover the scientific name is Fenethylline (or variations thereof). Apparently that which it was designed for has fallen out effective viability. These days the big money in Captagon production is in the illegal drug trade especially in the Middle East.

Captagon pills are displayed along with a cup of cocaine at an office of the Lebanese Internal Security Forces (ISF), Anti-Narcotics Division in Beirut on June 11, 2010. (Credit: JOSEPH EID/AFP/Getty Images)

Here is some excerpts from a Forbes article that provides a clear present day application:

This week brought a wave of articles about the drug Captagon— it’s being billed as the drug that’s fueling Syria’s bloody war. But Captagon is far from new, it isn’t the first time it’s been in the news, and the problem is bigger than Syria. Here’s what you need to know.

What is Captagon?

Captagon is one of several brand names for the drug compound fenethylline hydrochloride. Captagon is not a new drug. The Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Encyclopedia places its debut in 1961, when it was manufactured by Chemiewerk Homburg, a subsidiary of specialty chemicals company Degussa. The patent for its production dates to 1962, according to the Merck Index.

How does Captagon work?

Captagon is in the family of drugs known as amphetamines. These drugs are human-made but are chemically related to natural neurotransmitters like dopamine and epinephrine (aka adrenaline). When a person takes Captagon, their metabolism breaks the drug down to amphetamine itself, as well as to theophylline, a molecule that naturally occurs in small amounts in tea and that also has cardiac stimulating activity.

Amphetamine drugs stimulate the central nervous system, increasing alertness, boosting concentration and physical performance, and providing a feeling of well-being. In a BBC Arabic documentary that premiered earlier this fall, users described the intensity of a Captagon high to filmmakers in no uncertain terms: “I felt like I own the world, high,” one said. “Like I have power nobody has. A really nice feeling.” And another had this to say: “There was no fear anymore after I took Captagon.”

… But by the 1980s the medical community had determined that Captagon’s addictive properties outweighed its clinical benefits. At that point it was banned in most countries. Long-term amphetamine users can suffer from side effects such as extreme depression, sleep deprivation, heart and blood vessel toxicity, and malnutrition, according to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service.

… Making Captagon takes “only basic knowledge of chemistry and a few scales,” Lebanese psychiatrist Ramzi Haddad told Reuters. And apparently Captagon has enough brand recognition that counterfeit pills are commonly found in authorities’ drug seizures. One analysis of fake Captagon found no fenethylline hydrochloride (the true active ingredient). …

… Captagon means big money for Syria- a major producer of the drug. READ ENTIRETY (What You Need To Know About Captagon, The Drug Of Choice In War-Torn Syria; By Carmen Drahl; Forbes; 11/21/15 05:01 AM)

Syrian War Drug: What Effects Does This Drug Have On Fighters In Syria? [Video]


By Louis Babcock

November 20, 2015


A Syrian war drug is turning fighters in Syria into soldiers with almost superhuman abilities. The drug is call Captagon. Captagon is a potent amphetamine tablet and is considered highly addictive. When taken, Syrian fighters are able to stay awake for multiple days, and it also allows them to kill with recklessness. The drug also affects the mind in such a way that Syrian fighters feel nothing when they kill someone. Captagon essentially makes the person numb to any of the feelings a person would get when killing another human. The BBC was doing a documentary in September, and three men who have used the drug spoke about how it made them feel.

“You can’t sleep or even close your eyes, forget about it. And whatever you take to stop it, nothing can stop it.”

“I felt like I own the world high. Like I have power nobody has. A really nice feeling.”

“There was no fear anymore after I took Captagon.”

Syria’s War Drug: A look inside production of Captagon, the powerful amphetamine being used by soldiers in Syria. … There is more related to Journeyman Pictures

In 2014, Reuters did a report on how the Syrian war has turned Syria into a major drug producer in the region. An excerpt from the Reuters report is below.

“Syrian government forces and rebel groups each say the other uses Captagon to endure protracted engagements without sleep, while clinicians say ordinary Syrians are increasingly experimenting with the pills, which sell for between $5 and $20.”

A drug control officer spoke about what he has seen in people who have used the drug.

“We would beat them, and they wouldn’t feel the pain. Many of them would laugh while we were dealing them heavy blows. We would leave the prisoners for about 48 hours without questioning them while the effects of Captagon wore off, and then interrogation would become easier.”

Captagon started to be used medically in the 1960s. The drug was used in treating hyperactivity, sleep disorders, and depression. Due to the potency and addictiveness of Captagon, a ban was placed on it only 20 years later. In the United States, Captagon is considered a Schedule I drug.

Masood Karimipour, the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime regional representative, spoke with Voice Of America about the Syrian drug.

“Syria is a tremendous problem in that it’s a collapsed security sector, because of its porous borders, because of the presence of so many criminal elements and organized networks. There’s a great deal of trafficking being done of all sorts of illicit goods — guns, drugs, money, people. But what is being manufactured there and who is doing the manufacturing, that’s not something we have visibility into from a distance.”

The illegal drug trade, specifically, Captagon, has enabled millions of dollars to be brought into Syria. The money from the illegal drug business has allowed Syrian fighters to get access to better weapons. Turkey has put a dent in the Captagon trade. On the border of Turkey and Syria, Turkey officials were able to obtain 11 million tablets of Captagon. The 10.9 million tablets hold a value of between $55 million and $220 million. The 10.9 million tablets were confiscated in two different raids. In the first raid, Turkey was able to capture 7.3 million tablets while Turkey captured 3.6 million tablets in the second raid. The pills were going to be smuggled out to the countries in the Persian Gulf.

Even though the drug is becoming popular among Syrian fighters, Saudi Arabia is still the main importer. According to Reuters, seven tons of Captagon were imported into Saudi Arabia in 2010. It is said that up to 50,000 Saudis end up in drug treatment each year from the use of Captagon.

Is this Syrian war drug going to become a bigger problem in the Syria conflict? With Syrian refugees flooding into Europe, will we begin to see Captagon use increase there?

Secure American Culture

John R. Houk

© November 22, 2015

The Media Research Center (MRC) sent an email which I presume is a paid ad for the theme is the Secure Freedom survey which I believe was initially began in September 2015. The MRC alert email was sent on November 20, 2015. Secure Freedom is a project of Center for Security Policy (CSP) which is led by Frank Gaffney.

Since the MRC email is probably a paid ad I suspect the original goal was to lead readers to the Secure Freedom contribution webpage. I mention this only because I am not reposting the email as a part of the Secure Freedom fund raising project, but rather to promote support for what has been dubbed American Laws for American Courts (ALAC).

The function of ALAC is a constitutional method to ensure the supremacy of Constitutional Law over foreign laws from foreign lands. The aim is at Islam’s Sharia Law which is a rule of law observed by Muslims and many Muslim nations which is absolutely contrary to the rule of law embodied in the U.S. Constitution.

An ALAC website provides a very brief summary on its How ALAC Works page:

… (T)he American Laws for American Courts model legislation works to safeguard our individual constitutional liberties against the infiltration and creep of foreign legal systems, such as Shariah law.

As you will read in another ALAC website page – WHY AMERICAN LAWS FOR AMERICAN COURTS? – You will realize nearly zero Federal ALAC statutes are a part of America’s national rule of law because there are none. However you will discover that each State in the Union has the legal constitutional authority to pass laws guaranteeing that foreign laws DO NOT override the U.S. Constitution or the constitutional law of our American union of sovereign states.

Here’s the excerpt:

American constitutional rights must be preserved in order to preserve unique American values of liberty and freedom. State legislatures have a vital role to play in preserving those constitutional rights and American values of liberty and freedom.

America has unique values of liberty which do not exist in foreign legal systems, particularly Shariah Law. Included among, but not limited to, those values and rights are:

o Freedom of Religion

o Freedom of Speech

o Freedom of the Press

o Due Process

o Right to Privacy

o Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Civil and Criminal Law Serve as the Bedrock for American Values: We are a nation of laws.

Unfortunately, increasingly, foreign laws and legal doctrines, including Shariah law principles, are finding their way into US court cases.

Reviews of state laws provide extensive evidence that foreign laws and legal doctrines are introduced into US state court cases, including, notably, Islamic law known as Shariah, which is used in family courts and other courts in dozens of foreign Muslim-majority nations.

These foreign laws, frequently at odds with U.S. constitutional principles of equal protection and due process, typically enter the American court system through:

o Comity (mutual respect of each country’s legal system)

o Choice of law issues and

o Choice of forum or venue

Granting comity to a foreign judgment is a matter of state law, and most state and federal courts will grant comity unless the recognition of the foreign judgment would violate some important public policy of the state. This doctrine, the “Void as against Public Policy Rule,” has a long and pedigreed history.

Unfortunately, because state legislatures have generally not been explicit about what their public policy is relative to foreign laws, including as an example, Shariah, the courts and the parties litigating in those courts are left to their own devices – first to know what Shariah is, and second, to understand that granting comity to a Shariah judgment may be at odds with our state and federal constitutional principles in the specific matters at issue.

The goal of the American Laws for American Courts Act is a clear and unequivocal application of what should be the goal of all state courts: No U.S. citizen or resident should be denied the liberties, rights, and privileges guaranteed in our constitutional republic.

American Laws for American Courts is needed especially to READ ENTIRETY especially the sample legislation near the end

I live in the state of Oklahoma. Our state passed a pre-ALAC law by a people’s initiative that specifically targeted Sharia principles as incompatible with American laws. You probably won’t be surprised that a local Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) found a Federal Judge to rule that the State passed a law by a 70% margin of the voters as unconstitutional. Oklahoma was prepared for CAIR though, the state passed an ALAC version law on April 9, 2013 which was nearly three years after Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly passed an anti-Sharia law in 2010. The State House was 85 for and 7 against while the State Senate was 40 for and a mere 3 against.

Nine American States have successfully passed an ALAC version of legislation:

Nine states—Alabama, Arizona, Louisiana, Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Tennessee—have enacted legislation regarding the application of foreign or religious law in state courts. Eight states did so via the legislature, and Alabama enacted a measure in 2013 to change the constitution. That measure was approved by the voters in 2014. Mississippi passed legislation in 2015. (STATE RESOURCES ON THE PROHIBITION OF THE USE OF FOREIGN OR RELIGIOUS LAW IN STATE COURTS; National Conference of State Legislatures; 4/13/2015)

Twenty American States have pending legislation of a version of ALAC:

Twenty states have introduced legislation in 2015 to restrict the use of foreign law in state courts, and Mississippi has enacted legislation on the topic in 2015. Currently eight states have laws prohibiting the use of foreign laws in state courts. For more information on those laws, please see NCSL’s resources on “Laws Regarding the Use of Foreign Law in State Courts.

If you have been paying attention to the news lately you are aware of ISIS butchery in Syria/Iraq, ISIS terrorism on a Russian airliner, ISIS terrorism in Paris and al Qaeda related terrorism in Mali in West Africa. Immigration issues in Europe are beginning to be connected to Islamic terrorism. Also you should be aware that President Barack Hussein Obama has allowed a lot of Muslims termed as refugees who have already made the trek to ISIS. AND NOW Obama is forcing America to take on thousands of Muslim refugees from Syria – the Mordor of ISIS.

According to a 11/17/15 Newsmax story, Obama plans to bring Syrian refugees to the USA is highly skewed to 96% Muslims. ONLY about 3% are Christians. “Since 1991, it is estimated that over 100,000 Somali refugees have resettled to the United States.” These are some of the first Muslim refugees/immigrants to demonstrate a penchant for what politically correct pundits call radical Islam. So how does Barack Hussein Obama think that the paradigm of bringing Muslims from a radicalized area like Syria will be any different?

The Muslim-friendly Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies (ACRPS) polled 900 Syrian refugees spread around Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan in 2014 and found that 13% had a favorable opinion about ISIS (11/1/15 Clarion Project story by Ryan Mauro). Before the ISIS attack on November 13 in Paris, Obama announced in September a plan to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016. That means statistically over 1,000 may be supportive of Radical Islam. That is 1,000 potential future Islamic terrorists.

Check out this Obama idiocy:

That means that roughly 18 percent of Syria’s estimated 4 million refugees are Christians. So why have only less than 3 percent of the 2,184 Syrian refugees resettled in the United States from 2011 until now been Christians? (Why Are There Only 53 Christians Among America’s 2,184 Syrian Refugees? Morgan Lee; Christianity Today; 11/20/15)

At least 32 States are rejecting Obama Syrian refugee plan. This in spite of most Left Stream Media throwing support behind Obama’s resettlement program y propaganda by using Leftist social justice guilt on Americans that welcoming immigrants is part and parcel of American values as a melting pot.

Look at America’s history from colonial days through nationhood: From where do an overwhelming majority of our melting pot Americans come from? That would be some form of Christianity (Protestant, Catholic or Eastern Rite). And the minority of non-Christian immigrants: All conformed to Western ideals embodied in the U.S. Constitution via assimilation.

Do Muslims assimilate? MOST do not. Especially the less educated refugee type of Muslims devoted to Islamic Sharia Law.

So is it actually a travesty of American values if most Americans reject the concept of accommodating Muslim refugees? I say it is more of a travesty to bring non-conforming Muslims into an American culture that stands for everything Islam IS NOT.

During a press conference in Manila, President Obama chastises the GOP and their ensuing rhetoric over Syrian refugees as a “potent recruitment tool for ISIL”

Obama and his Leftist cadres have a closer affinity to self-destructive Leftist values than toward traditional American values.

Thank God Almighty for the Governors that know the difference between Leftist values and American values.

Just like the existence of sanctuary cities as safe havens for illegal immigrants, there are American cities promoting the acceptance of Syrian Refugees even in States against refugee accommodation.

As long as a Leftist agenda is successful in bringing counter-culture Muslims to America, Americans must protect and ensure that our American Constitutional Liberties are protected from Multicultural concepts of accommodating Muslims who desire Sharia even though it is contrary to the U.S. Constitution.

Shariah or the U.S. Constitution?

Should Islam’s Supremacist Shariah Be Allowed to Transform America?

Fellow American,

Your answers are urgently needed on our National Citizen Opinion Survey about the growing foothold Islamic supremacists and their agenda for dominating the world known as Shariah are achieving in America.

Photo Sharia Law in USA

Alarmingly, those who believe Islam and its repressive anti-Constitutional Shariah must rule the whole world, are making serious inroads in towns and cities right here in America – sometimes with our own tax dollars!

What’s more, the followers of Islam’s Shariah are not simply believers in a “religion.” Instead, they are waging jihad (holy war) – in one form or another – to force the whole world to submit to their dictates, non-Muslim and Muslim alike . . .

. . . even coercing or forcing what we would consider to be “the good Muslims” to join them in conforming to Shariah.

And with illegal and legal Muslim immigration in America growing at record rates, Shariah-adherent immigrants are challenging the Judeo-Christian foundation of our U.S. Constitution, our culture and values – often in ways unknown to most Americans.

Worse yet, Islamic leaders are cleverly using our own 1st Amendment rights to establish and defend so-called “Islamic Centers” here in our country, that in reality are Shariah-adherent mosques that advance “Jihad” against America . . .

. . . often providing safe-havens for terrorist recruitment and indoctrination in their quest for world dominance and power.

That’s why it’s so vital for you to sign and return your National Citizen Opinion Survey in support of keeping U.S. courts and government agencies from enabling Shariah law to take hold here.

Whether or not this problem has affected your area yet, just think about this:

o An undercover investigation found that a staggering 80% of Islamic mosques or “cultural centers” in America are under the influence of the Shariah-promoting Saudi (Wahabbist) wing of Islam. Under Shariah, gender and religion determine specific “rights” in ways at odds with our Constitutional ones.

o And Shariah promotes “jihad” . . . violence and terrorism against all Islamic “non-believers.”

And unless thousands of freedom-loving citizens like you share their views with key community leaders and our legislators to stop the creeping political influence of supremacist Islam and Shariah in America, all we need to do is look to Europe to see where our country is headed.

Great Britain now has 85 Shariah courts. In Germany, Shariah law has been used to defend a husband’s right to beat his wife and practice polygamy. France has overhauled its domestic tax laws to accommodate “Islamic Finance.”

Just think about what is already happening in America:

Secure Freedom has identified 146 U.S. court cases in which an attempt was made to use Shariah to decide the dispute. In one in five instances, the judge agreed. We expect those numbers to grow. And recently, a group of Muslims in northern Texas tried to establish the first official “Islamic tribunal” to dispense Shariah law in the United States.

How can this be happening in our country?

It’s because of a clever technique used by a particularly dangerous Islamic supremacist group, the Muslim Brotherhood. They call it “civilization jihad,” a term that describes how the Brotherhood is aiming at, in their words, “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”

Here are some of the ways the civilization jihadist leaders are stealthily trying to take us down:

o Islamists are placing Muslim Brothers into positions as advisors to and, in some cases as employees of, our government – placements that facilitate their insidious influence operations.

o Islamists seek to prevent our free speech – particularly the kind that might allow us to understand and effectively counteract their secretive assaults on our country and its institutions.

o Islamists are trying to use the “Common Core” curriculum – our children’s textbooks – to promote Islamic supremacism in our academic institutions.

o Islamists are working to insinuate Shariah into U.S. courts and establish their own parallel “Islamic tribunals” to subvert our rule of law and Constitution.

o Islamists are using our immigration system – especially our refugee resettlement program – to engage in what the Islamic supremacists call the hijra, a Muslim colonization of America.

o Islamists enlist leaders of other faiths through so-called “interfaith dialogue” to obscure and enable what is fundamentally a subversive political, not a legitimate religious, agenda. And,

o Islamists use what is known as “Shariah-Compliant Finance” to penetrate and coopt our capitalist system.

While the Europeans are further down the tubes than we are at the moment, I think you’ll agree there is reason to believe we are catching up. For example:

o Many national food chains are selling unmarked Shariah-compliant “Halal” meat (the animal is ritually-slaughtered by a Muslim who sacrifices it to Allah), unbeknownst to most Americans who are buying and consuming it.

o Our own U.S. Treasury Dept. has hosted in its headquarters a course called “Islam Finance 101” to promote Shariah-compliant financial activities. And today, most of our major banks and financial institutions – including one-time government-owned and taxpayer-funded AIG – offer “Shariah-Compliant” products that are overseen by Muslim “scholars” to ensure they comply with Islamic law.

o Some public and taxpayer-funded university gyms are now providing separate hours for male and female swimming . . . to comply with Shariah laws for Islamic followers.

o Several years ago, at a Tyson’s chicken processing plant in Tennessee, the American Labor Day holiday was REPLACED with an Islamic religious holiday. A public outcry forced the company to reverse that decision, but it did so by making accommodations for both holidays.

o A New Jersey judge denied a protective order to a Moroccan-American woman being systematically beaten and tortured by her Muslim husband on the grounds that he was just practicing his faith according to Shariah. And in Virginia, an Islamic school operating under Shariah not only ignored the reports by a little girl that she was being molested by her father, but the principal sent her home for him to “handle it”.

o A Muslim father murdered his two daughters in Houston a few years ago in an act known as “honor killing” for dating American boys. Others are having their girls’ genitals mutilated – yes, here in the United States.

So you can see why it is so critical to the future of America to participate in this unprecedented national effort. We must shine the light of day on how supremacist Islam and Shariah are gaining ground. And we must get millions of our fellow citizens behind our effort to prevent Shariah from taking hold here and to counter the jihad of all kinds in America.

So I hope you will do your part by answering and submitting your National Citizen Opinion Survey and join in our fight to push back on the Islamic supremacists and their Shariah agenda.

I am emailing you and a few other key people in your area who I thought would be most likely to help us stop this growing threat.

My name is Frank Gaffney. I am the founder and President of Secure Freedom (also known as the Center for Security Policy). For twenty-seven years, we have forged partnerships between elected and other government officials, past and present military leaders, experts and citizens like you to safeguard our U.S. national security against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Since before the attacks by jihadists on 9/11, we have been investigating and challenging Islamic supremacism, and the growing influence of Sharia in America.

Perhaps you’ve seen me as a guest on Fox News and other media outlets warning about Shariah. They call me or a member of my staff when they need an expert on how Islamic supremacism, its Shariah program and jihad are becoming problems for Americans, not just somewhere else, but here at home, as well.

Make no mistake. These threats will destroy America from within – unless we stop them.

That’s why we’ve launched a major national educational campaign to expose millions of Americans to the truth and mobilize them to turn this crisis around now . . . before it’s too late.

We hold strategic briefings and training programs for key community leaders, legislators, law enforcement and military personnel, pastors and others to warn them about the dangers of civilization jihad, as well as the violent kind, right here in our own country. We also equip these partners with strategies for defeating the jihadists.

We have modeled our strategic approach after the one my old boss, President Reagan, used to defeat the last totalitarian ideology that tried to take us down: Soviet communism. We call it the Secure Freedom Strategy.

If you would like to know what we are recommending to bring all instruments of national power to bear against today’s ideological counterpart to communism, Shariah, you can check out this strategy for free at

And if you want to learn more about the how the Muslim Brotherhood’s “civilization jihadist” techniques in our country, visit our free, online course at or download for free our publications at

You may have also heard me discuss this issue on my nationally syndicated show, Secure Freedom Radio. You can also catch our podcasts at any time at

I am anxious to see your response to the National Citizen Opinion Survey because I suspect it will confirm my experience . . .

. . . when Americans are exposed to the facts – without “politically correct,” but factually wrong, statements from our government or media lies and distortions – they will join in taking the steps needed NOW to help prevent Islamic supremacism from securing an ever-larger foothold here, and ensure that every person residing in this country, no matter their religious, ethnic or cultural background, lives by America’s Constitutional rule of law.

So, can I count on you to take just a few minutes right now to give me your opinions on the National Citizen Opinion Survey and help us show our leaders how powerfully the American people want us to counter jihad? I pray you will do so.

That’s because, incredible as it may seem – like many of their constituents – an awful lot of local, state and even federal legislators and officials are unaware of the progress being made by Islamic supremacists determined first to insinuate, then to impose, Shariah in our country. That’s why Secure Freedom must not only educate the public, but also our representatives, about the necessity of preventing this impending national crisis.

But we have a major obstacle facing us.

Muslim Brotherhood-associated organizations like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) are trying to suppress the sort of information we need to get out. Their influence operations against our government, media and elites – in which they call truth-tellers “Islamophobes,” “racists” and “bigots” – all-too-often succeed in enforcing Shariah blasphemy restrictions on free expression.

This is all the more outrageous since, in a speech, a former Chairman of CAIR proclaimed:

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth”.

Chilling words indeed!

The rise of the barbaric Islamic State (ISIS) and the resurgence of al Qaeda and its affiliates have begun to arouse many of our countrymen and women to the ever-expanding forces of Shariah-adherent Muslims and the clear and present danger their violent jihad increasingly poses to our homeland and citizens.

Now we need to ensure that our fellow Americans are aware as well of the other principal form of jihad – the Muslim Brotherhood’s civilization jihad.

With your help and the help of others today, I feel confident that we can effectively counter these stealthy Islamic supremacists and the agenda they share with the violent jihadists: imposing Shariah on America.

Currently, Secure Freedom’s “Counter Jihad Campaign” is working on 4 principal fronts. For our efforts to succeed we must:

1) Contact and educate at least 3 million key Americans like yourself, by exposing them to information about the Islamists’ insidious threat to America.

We want to do that by sharing with them informational letters and getting feedback in our National Citizens Opinion Survey. Funds permitting, we want to distribute our free mini-book with highlights of Shariah, The Threat to America – It contains all you need to know about Islamic supremacism and what its practitioners have in mind for you. Our goal is to do this within the next 60 days.

Then, we must communicate to state, local and federal leaders the results of our Survey to ensure there are, at a minimum, no more jihadists or additional jihadist mosques and organizations allowed to operate in this country and to begin effectively countering those already here.

2) Take out newspaper and radio advertisements, use the Internet – even produce TV ads – to expose the truth about Shariah to tens of millions of citizens and create even more public pressure to defeat jihad.

3) Ramp up our ongoing work to foster among key groups – law enforcement, veterans and other military personnel, pastors and community leaders – awareness of and what to do about the insidious, and growing, Islamic supremacist movement.

Such folks have, after all, an urgent need to know of this danger since in many cases, their towns, cities or states are being systematically subjected to the Islamists’ civilization jihad, colonization or other subversive operations.

4) And I must continue holding one-on-one strategy sessions with Members of Congress, presidential candidates, leading folks in the media and other influential figures in our effort to encourage the necessary course-correction for our country. We have to educate them about the true nature of Shariah and the imperative of preventing it from subverting our Constitution and way of life.

Simply put, Shariah is anti-Constitutional and incompatible with the rule of law in a republic such as ours.

That’s because our Constitution guarantees that every individual citizen is “endowed by our Creator” with an identical set of rights, no matter their gender or religion. But if the Islamic supremacists succeed in hiding their true agenda and the progress they are making towards realizing it, they will continue to erode our freedom of speech and other rights and continue to subvert our country.

By engaging our legislators, enlisting our community leaders and educating millions of concerned Americans around the county with information kits and critical alerts, I believe this is a battle we can win. But not without help like yours and others who we are asking to give us a hand.

And our first and most critical step is to get my email and this National Citizen Opinion Survey to at least 3 million like-minded citizens starting within the next 60 days. And that’s where your assistance is sorely needed.

Yes, we have our work cut out for us, but please know that the Secure Freedom team has the unique expertise needed for us to succeed on this critical task.

But because Secure Freedom is a non-profit organization, our funds are very limited. We must ensure that our financial resources are used to the greatest possible effect.

And today I was only able to afford to contact you and others who I felt would be most likely to help us.

In fact, you are among the first citizens to receive Secure Freedom’s National Citizen Opinion Survey on Islamic supremacism in America.

It was important to me that you be one of the first to be invited to help with this campaign. Along with your answers to our Survey today, will you also include a generous donation to our effort – $20 or $25, or even $50, $100, $200 or more if you can possibly afford it? Even $15 would be a blessing.

I know in these hard economic times, many people are tightening their belts and making financial contributions wisely. But an investment in the work of Secure Freedom is one of the wisest contributions you can make, as it is truly unique and urgently needed.

If you and I do not make the effort NOW to stop the Islamic supremacists and their jihad and Shariah from gaining more ground, I shudder to think what America will look like just a few short years from now – and how it will afflict our children and grandchildren.

Perhaps this problem has not directly affected you or your community, yet. But I can assure you, with Muslim immigration at record rates and the success of the Islamists’ civilization jihad, it soon will.

So please join us in working to counter jihad and secure freedom by completing the National Citizen Opinion Survey – a critical first step in helping us protect our Constitution and our country in these difficult and increasingly dangerous times.

With heartfelt thanks for your help,

Frank Gaffney
Founder and President, Secure Freedom

P.S. Remember, too many Americans are unaware of the tremendous inroads being achieved by the Islamic supremacists’ global effort to bring Shariah to towns and cities right here in America – often with our very own tax dollars and, in some cases, with the help of the United Nations.

They don’t yet know what you now do: Shariah makes Islam into much more than a “religion.” It is nothing less than a truly global political and military offensive against America and the West. With thousands of mosques in America advancing this program here via stealthy forms of jihad as well, occasionally, as violent ones, we must act now!

It’s vital for you to complete the National Citizen Opinion Survey right away to help us create the massive public pressure needed to counter this jihad and keep Shariah from subverting our Constitution and rights in our courts, media, churches, financial sector and government.

So, please let me hear back from you today. And I hope you’ll be as generous as you can to help us fund this unprecedented national educational and advocacy campaign. Thank you.

Forced Conversion

In America when a person calls another a Judas, that person is considered a once trusted person who has betrayed that trust. The term comes from the Apostle Judas Iscariot that betrayed Jesus the Son of God to the greedy for power running the Jewish Sanhedrin. (Just for clarification – this is NOT a blame-the-Jews moment but rather a blame those greedy for power moment.)

Christian Pakistanis are desperate to find a political leader that works to increase the civil rights of Christians and take a stand against the Muslim vicious persecution of Christians. You would think Christian Pakistanis would find trusted leadership among their better-off fellow Christians, right? Shamim Masih writes about the reality that way too many Christians in leadership positions and Ministry/Clergy positions are more concerned about protecting their privileged station in Pakistan rather than looking out for the interests of the poorer Christians experiencing the havoc of Islamic Supremacism that denigrates Christian Pakistanis.

Forced Conversion

Fighting with Words against Judas Iscariots of Today

By Shamim Masih

Sent 11/20/2015 2:10 AM

ISLAMABAD: A few days back, I saw a tent outside the National Press Club, Islamabad. There a Christian couple with children has converted to Islam and was looking for financial help. The newly converted Muslim family has posted a written request that asked help from the President of Pakistan, Prime Minister of Pakistan, Chief Justice of Pakistan and Malik Riaz (a real estate tycoon [Express Tribune]). This is not the first time that such an incident happened, earlier many families have displaced the same banners and many of my colleagues are a witness to it.

Though the data is not available, but I guess around 95% Pakistani Christians are living under or below the poverty line and situations much

worse in remote areas as Christians are living in bounded slavery. Long ago before Indo-Pak partition, when missionaries came here and preached Christianity, a majority from poor class converted to Christianity. Certainly it happened due to the love and economic support by the missionaries. Missionaries established educational institutions and health care centers in this region.

When Pakistan came into being in 1947, history is witness to it that there were some Christians sitting on the top most positions in different sectors. But as soon as the real ideology was grabbed by Liaqat Ali Khan [Wikipedia] after the death [Dawn and Hamari Web] of the founder of the nation – Mohammad Ali Jinnah – Pakistan became the Islamic Republic [Friday Times] of Pakistan in 1956 [Calgary Centre for Global Community]. On 12 March, 1949, the second constituent assembly of Pakistan passed the objective resolution [Speech of Liaquat Ali Khan on the Objectives Resolution March 9 1949Scribd.] which was proposed by the first Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan, proclaiming that the future constitution of Pakistan would not be modeled entirely on a European pattern, but on the ideology and democratic faith of Islam. The promulgation of the constitution in 1956 led to Pakistan declaring itself an Islamic Republic (official name) with the adoption of parliamentary democratic system of government. The resignation letter [Wikipedia and] of Jogendra Nath Mandal [The News on Sunday] in October 1950 clearly showed the hypocrisy of the Muslim leadership.

Missionaries established educational institutions to educate children from the lower class and hospitals for public care but after the mass exodus of missionaries from Pakistan, the sitting Christian leadership didn’t follow the same rules. Later when Zulifqar Ali Bhutto became the prime minister of Pakistan, he nationalized Christian institutions thus this chapter was closed. Since then neither clergy nor political leadership ever planned for the economic development of the Christians. Instead clergy remain busy in selling church properties and political leadership remains disloyal with the community [Christian Times and]. In the first week of November 2015, in the village of Punjab province, Chack number 228, (around 50 km away from the Faisalabad) an eight year old Christian girl was beaten [Breitbart] and locked in her school washroom by her head teacher for daring to use toilet meant for Muslim girls only.

In the recent few weeks dozens of Christian girls were kidnapped/rapped and forced to conversion [Pakistan Christian Post, and]. The head teacher in a village 30 kilometer away from the Punjab capital was brutally beaten up due to his faith by his subordinate. Still Pakistani leadership says that there is no discrimination and minorities are enjoying full rights in Pakistan. This is all due to the poor performance of the Christian leadership; and Pakistani Christians are still facing many problems. But the [Christian] clergy is busy in making money.

Secondly since the government of Pakistan has adopted joint electoral system for minorities of the country the local community is divided into different groups – a divide and rule policy being adopted. The PML-N present ruling party, in Punjab has not been able to provide protection to Christians, instead the rulers’ attitude towards Christian is discriminatory. Since the twin churches bomb blast in Youhanabad [HERE and HERE], many Christians are still in the prisons [Pakistan2days]. Dozens of the families are suffering due to the arrests of their family heads. [The is the case even] Though the government has not been able to prove its allegations against them and therefore inmates and their families are suffering. In this incident, one Christian parliamentarian has reportedly betrayed the community and had shown his loyalty with his party. The same has been happening for the last decade.

Christians of Pakistan need better leadership and unity at the local level. There are people with potential to do something but they don’t have resources. But there are people, with no vision but resources, they are wasting them and have set their priorities. Education, economic uplift programs need to adopted. And to discourage the hypocrites and self-centered personals.

There are also some so-called leaders among Pakistani Christians that mislead the world and present a cool and calm situation in Pakistan for Pakistani Christians. Most recently one religious leader and so-called political leader has attended and presented a report and denied any oppression or persecution of religious minorities by the government and local people [Pakistan Christian Post]. This type of people are betrayers and have sold out our nation, they do not want anyone to expose them. These are the Judas Iscariots of today and we need to stand against them. But I believe that youngsters of [our] nation have realized [that many Christian leaders are corrupt] and will reject them and will stand with truth and right.

The European Union has taken in millions refugees from Syria, Egypt and other countries of the Middle East. Now extremists among those refugees are reportedly involved in creating disturbance in the EU [Express and WSJ] and UK. The EU and UNHCR are very open about [Muslim] refugees from the Middle East. Yet these EU countries always discourage Pakistani Christians. And [these EU leaders are] taking measures against Christian asylum seekers from Pakistan. As a Pakistani Christian, I urge Pakistani Christians to stand together and join hands together against the crooked and self-centered so-called [Christian] leadership.

Commander-In-Chiefs Who Refuse to Identify the Enemy

Commander-In-Chiefs Who Refuse to Identify the Enemy


NOVEMBER 17, 2015

People’s Pundit Daily

Presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (socialist) and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during the second Democratic debate, left, and President Barack Obama during a press conference at the G-20 Summit in Turkey. (Photos: Reuters)

In today’s topsy-turvy world, down means up, bad means good and, the term “Islamic terrorist” is not permitted in public policy conversation. Search the American press releases for the two words together from major media outlets. You will only find the recent challenge to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to put the two words together.

Neither Hillary nor Obama will allow this concept to be communicated to the public. Hillary did say instead that we are fighting against “jihadis” but flat out refused to state it was a battle against “Islamic terrorism.”

Is this semantics?

No, it is a propaganda machine for creating a vacuum effect that removes the “who factor” of just who it is we are at war against. For too long a battle has been waged, with the refusal to acknowledge who it is we are fighting against. This is not solely an Obama problem. It is first and foremost a military problem that has continued through two administrations!

The President of the United States holds the title of Commander-in-Chief (CIC). He is the true head of our military. No one else bears the responsibility. No blame can be placed on generals or admirals, for it is their duty to follow the orders of their commander. It is the CIC alone who has the responsibility of identifying the enemy and he alone who issues orders regarding military actions against foreign entities.

Generals, admirals and lower-ranking officers may be the ones on the front lines, but they ultimately receive their orders from the commander-in-chief.

What kind of war would have been fought in World War II if we refused to say that the enemy was “Nazi Germany” and instead said, “The enemy is only a few German people, but not all Germans are the problem.”

Today America’s enemy stands unidentified!

This enemy is guilty of the following attacks on America, but is not identified by the Obama administration nor will it be identified by any of the presidential contenders from the Democratic Party.

1) Feb. 26, 1993 New York City a bomb exploded in the basement garage of the World Trade Center, killing 6 and injuring at least 1,040 others.

2) Nov. 13, 1995 Riyadh, Saudi Arabia a car bomb exploded at U.S. military headquarters, killing 5 U.S. marines.

While many of the events listed above had groups or persons identified as committing the terrorist act, no general identifying group of persons is identified. This is a statement that in the 21 events listed above, no commonality exists among the actors of these terrorist deeds.

Is this true, or has the American people been lied to by their commander-in-chiefs? Yes, as in plural. The timeline includes the leadership of not two but three U.S. presidents. Each of them failed to identify that there exists a common thread amongst all 21 acts, which is by no means a complete list. That commonality is persons who want Islamic law to rule the world. Thus, there exists a need to identify the enemy as being Islamist terrorists.

Islamists are those who want every single person on the planet to submit to the rule of sharia–Islamic law. However, if this simple identifier was used today, it would require several federal agencies to take action:

1) The Muslim Brotherhood would be identified as a terrorist group. Any and all of its entities in the U.S. would be closed and their officers considered for revocation of citizenship and deportation.

2) All persons entering the U.S., including those planning on becoming citizens, those classified as refugees or classified as other, would have to declare: “I do not believe sharia should be applied to those who are non-Muslim.” Persons refusing to state this would be refused entry.

3) Those in this country who have made public statements of supremacy of sharia or Islamic law over the U.S. Constitution could have their citizenship revoked.

4) All federal funding to sources that currently subscribe to this belief would be cut off. Currently, several federal agencies provide financial support both here in the U.S. and abroad to persons and groups that promote the teaching of sharia.
