MSA Misleads – Professor Eisenstein Litigates

Associated Professor Maurice Eisenstein of the Political Science department at Purdue University noticed that a group of radical Muslims from Nigeria calling themselves Boko Haram (Warning: Link that tells what Radical Islamic Boko Haram is has a video showing just how evil these Muslims are by ritually beheading a Christian Nigerian) slaughtered some fellow Nigerians merely because they were Christians. Eisenstein objected to murder in the name of Islam as taught to do to non-Muslims by Islam’s founder Mohammed. Eisenstein objected in the public forum of Facebook.

 

A Muslim gal at Purdue commented on Eisenstein’s Facebook page that she was the equivalent of disgusted for insulting Mo the prophet. Evidently because the Muslim gal has tons of Muslim friends on Facebook, Eisenstein’s excellent though not politically correct call went viral among Muslim students at Purdue. And surprise-surprise, the Muslim Student Association (MSA) organized a fire Eisenstein movement on the Purdue campus. Here is a snapshot of the Facebook entry made by Eisenstein courtesy of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).

Maurice Eisensten Facebook Controversy

 

In a FrontPageMag.com interview between Eisenstein and Jamie Glazov, Eisenstein said this:

 

“The entire attack on my free speech began over a post I made to Facebook in November 2011.  I posted a picture with a storyline about an Islamist Muslim group (Boko Haram) killing Christians in Nigeria.  I asked: Where were the moderate Muslims? They must be listening to that idiot Mohammad.

 

From this, one of my PUC colleagues, a Muslim, told me (on Facebook) that she believed my statement about Mohammad was beyond despicable.  Once she responded to me, then several of her students were able come to my Facebook page to tell me that they also believed that I was out-of-bounds for denigrating Mohammad.  Their essential issue was that I was offending Mohammed and Islam.  In the wake of that incident, the Muslim Student Association became involved and they did a press release saying that no prophet (Jesus, Moses, Mohammad — their argument not mine) should be insulted because offending a religion was not an acceptable use of freedom of speech.

 

Basically, this whole ordeal started because I insulted Mohammad.  I did insult Mohammad.  I may not have been nice about it, I may have been provocative about it, but quite frankly, I think killing Christians because they are Christian and not Muslim is much more insulting than calling Mohammad an idiot.

 

From this incident, there emerged an active campaign from the Muslim faculty and students, the Muslim Student Association (acting, as it claimed, on behalf of all Muslims), and their leftist supporters, active collusion to get the University to fire me for offending them.  Because the University could not fire me for Facebook comments, the faculty, students, and the MSA decided that it would then say that I was harassing and discriminating against students in my classroom.  Toward that end, audio tapes of one of my courses from Spring 2011 were then posted on YouTube. It was an Introduction to Judaism course, which I taught from a pro-Jewish and pro-Israel perspective.  Two of the books I used in the course were: Why the Jews? by Praeger and Telushkin as well as The Israel Test by George Gilder.  Anyway, I am very provocative and blunt — I like challenging students, particularly since most of what is taught on campus (irrespective of the discipline) comes from a center left perspective.

 

Now, there are over 40 to 45 hours of lectures from that class.  Out of those 40 to 45 hours, about 16 minutes were posted on YouTube and, of course, these 16 minutes were selectively edited so that I was portrayed in the worst possible light and without context.  Then, based on these tapes, in conjunction with my Facebook comments, 9 separate harassment and discrimination complaints were filed against me.” (Read Entire Interview)

 

Eventually the Muslim Student Association is a direct offshoot of the Salafist/Radical Muslim group known as the Muslim Brotherhood. That means the MSA as does the Muslim Brotherhood believes that Christians that refuse to submit to Islamic Supremacism must die. Since MSA is an American group, they will not come outright and say the Mohammed principle of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) must choose between converting to Islam, submitting to the authority of the rules of Sharia-Dhimmitude or die. That would be a public relations disaster for them in America. So the MSA as do many Muslim-American groups that have roots in the Muslim Brotherhood or Saudi Wahhabism obfuscate their beliefs in America to produce the view that Islam is just another religion deserving Religious Freedom.

 

ACT for America is exposing the nefarious nature of the MSA in sharing about Eisenstein’s effort to sue Purdue for infringing on his Free Speech rights because Purdue considered the possibility of punishment for Eisenstein writing the obvious truth on his Facebook page.

Professor files free speech lawsuit

When should free speech be limited?

According to the Muslim Students Association (MSA), apparently when it hears speech it deems “anti-Muslim.”

According to the Fox News story below (highlights added), a Purdue University professor who made comments on his Facebook page about Muslims was investigated after complaints by the MSA and other faculty.

The professor then filed a lawsuit alleging the investigation violated his free speech rights.

One of the faculty members expressed concern for the Saudi students on campus. She went so far as to argue that the “anti-Muslim” comments were comparable to yelling fire in a crowded theater. The implication is that the comments put Muslim students in danger and should be prohibited.

Someone needs to remind this professor who complained that we’re not living in Saudi Arabia, where speech deemed offensive to Muslims is prohibited and can put a non-Muslim in serious jeopardy. We still have free speech protections here, whether that speech is offensive to Muslims, Jews or Christians.

Professor sues Purdue after probe of his anti-Muslim Facebook comments

Purdue University Professor Maurice Eisenstein says the school’s investigation – which cleared him – still violated his free speech rights.

A Purdue University professor has filed a freedom of speech suit against his school and five co-workers after getting in hot water for inflammatory statements about Muslims on his Facebook page.

Tenured political science professor Maurice Eisenstein was cleared by a university investigation into his Facebook comments, which included a reference to “the idiot Mohammad [sic}, may his name be cursed." But Eisenstein claims the investigation nonetheless damaged his reputation and disputes a finding that he retaliated against other faculty members.

“I was trying to be challenging as a professor, and do what I was trained to do,” Eistenstein, who joined the school's faculty in 1993, told FoxNews.com.

The flap unfolded late last year, when Eisenstein posted a photo of the aftermath of a massacre of Nigerian Christians, purportedly carried out by African Muslims, on his Facebook page.

"Where are the ‘moderate' Muslims' reaction to this? Oh, I forgot they are still looking at the earth as flat ...,” Eisenstein wrote above the post.

Other members of the faculty, as well as members of the Muslim Student Association, learned of the comments and went to school officials. Eisenstein maintained that the post was on his personal page and in no way reflected on the school. History professor Miriam Joyce, who later filed a harassment complaint against Eisenstein, told FoxNews.com the comments could alienate students.

“We have Saudi students," Joyce said. "We have other Muslim students. This is wrong. It creates an unpleasant and unwelcoming atmosphere. “I’m concerned that Muslim students and their parents will get the wrong idea about my school.”

The Muslim Student Association could not be reached for comment.

The school's investigation, led by Chancelor Thomas Keon, cleared Eisenstein in January of violating the college’s free-speech and anti-harassment rules. However, he received a written reprimand for allegedly retaliating against Joyce, as well as a second professor, Saul Lerner.

Eisenstein denied retaliating or harassing his colleagues, but acknowledged a bitter e-mail exchange with Lerner and denies making a callous reference to Joyce’s son, a former hedge fund manager who committed suicide.

Eisenstein said his freedom-of-speech suit is the result of the university’s investigation into his comments about Muslims - even though the probe ostensibly cleared him.

“When you investigate free speech, you chill free speech,” Eisenstein said. “How am I supposed to do my job without free speech. I've changed. Every time I go into a classroom, I look around and wonder who will complain about what I say.”

Eisenstein enlisted the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) in bringing his suit against the Big Ten school.

"This is not the first time and it won't be the last time we will see a university punish a student or professor for constitutionally protected speech on Facebook," said FIRE President Greg Lukianoff. "Professors at public universities should not have to go to court to defend their free speech rights."

Joyce said freedom of speech shouldn't permit a professor at a public school to gratuitously denigrate the beliefs of others, including students at the school.

“I'm all for free speech. I want it for me and I want it for everyone else, but there’s got to be some judgment used," Joyce said. "You don’t cry fire if there isn’t a fire and then say it was protected by free speech.

“I’m a [history] teacher,” she added. “I’d rather be dealing with Bahrain than Eisenstein, anyway.”

CAIR-MI Shuts Down Free Speech


CAIR-Hamas logo

Could you imagine a public event extolling the United States Constitution being shut down because a particular minority religion is offended by the fundamental rights inherent in the Constitution?

 

That is what happened in Allegan, MI. The Executive Director for Council on American-Islamic Relations – Michigan (CAIR-MI) complained about a group promoting American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) in a Public School led to the intimidation of school officials. The school had entered into a legal contract for the event to take place. The notified the Allegan Police Department about the intimidating letter from CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid. The Allegan Police then took it upon themselves to make up a conspiracy that threatened one of the key speakers with violence. After which the police shut down the event already in progress.

 

Here is the thing. There was no threat of physical violence. There was only the letter from Dawud Walid from an organization dubiously noted to be litigious to get their way by costing the other side tons of money.

 

It can’t proven (yet), but there is the appearance that law enforcement in Michigan in general has done its fair share of looking the other way concerning Radical Islamic activities. For example CAIR was named as an unindicted co-defendant in the Holy Land Foundation trial that led to convictions for funneling money to the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas.

 

The Allegan police’s solution to a physical threat – which was non-existent – was to shut down the event rather than to protect FREE SPEECH guaranteed by the Constitution’s First Amendment because a terrorist linked organization like CAIR complained about a group that was rallying support to defend the Constitution from foreign law being an influence in Michigan State Courts.

 

Well for once CAIR is on the other end of a lawsuit. The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) is representing the group’s sponsor in suing CAIR, the school and the Allegan Police Department.

 

GO TMLC!

 

Below is the ACT for America email that alerted me to this squelching of Free Speech at the behest of a Radical Islamic organization in America. The email begins with a promotional for the ACT for America National Convention which I am including being the fan of ACT that I am. The important information though is after the promotion of a news alert sent by TMLC that has greater detail than I just attempted to relay.

Lawsuit filed against CAIR-Michigan

Last week the Thomas More Law Center, a powerful force for good against the threat of radical Islam, announced it had filed a civil rights lawsuit against CAIR-Michigan and others. According to a Thomas More Law Center news release (see below, highlights added), an event promoting “American Laws for American Courts” (ALAC) legislation was shut down after complaints by CAIR-Michigan:

 

ANN ARBOR, MI – In the middle of an event to extol the virtues of the U.S. Constitution and “American Laws For American Courts,” the audience learned first-hand how easy it is to lose their freedom of Speech and Assembly.

Amid shouts of “What about free speech?” from the audience, the Allegan Police Department ordered the event shut-down.

 

This assault on free speech is shocking. One of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit is Beth Griffin, an energetic, hard-working long-time ACT! for America chapter leader. (To illustrate, Beth was active in the successful effort to stop Obama administration plans to transfer Guantanamo Bay detainees to Standish, Michigan).

People sometimes ask us, “if I already know a lot about radical Islam, should I still attend the ACT! for America National Conference?”

 

·         If you want to meet people like Beth Griffin and find out what makes them successful…

 

·         If you want to find out more about issues like UN Resolution 16/18, and what Members of Congress plan on doing about it…

 

·         If you want to see what we’re doing behind the scenes to win passage of ALAC legislation, and why it’s so important…

 

·         If you want to be encouraged by stories of what others are doing to make a difference in this fight against radical Islam…

 

·         If you want to just have some fun with like-minded patriots…

 

 

…then the answer to that question is YES!

LOG ON HERE to register or find out more about the conference. The conference starts in just 54 days, and if you want to ensure you’ll get a hotel room at the heavily discounted conference rate, you need to reserve your room by June 1. Call 800.843.6664 or reserve your hotel room online HERE.

Still trying to decide? Here’s a 57 second video message one of last year’s attendees just emailed to us. We hear a lot of concerns from people that America’s young people aren’t waking up to this threat. Well, here’s one of our future leaders!!

Irony—Police Shut-down Event Promoting U.S. Constitution. Thomas More Law Center Files Lawsuit against Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI); Allegan Officials

ANN ARBOR, MI – In the middle of an event to extol the virtues of the U.S. Constitution and “American Laws For American Courts,” the audience learned first-hand how easy it is to lose their freedom of Speech and Assembly.

Amid shouts of “What about free speech?” from the audience, the Allegan Police Department ordered the event shut-down. School officials notified police that they had received a letter complaining about the event from Dawud Walid, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI). The letter asked the school to disallow the event despite an existing contract. CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding trial in U. S. history, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation.

As a result, the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced today that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR- MI), its Executive Director, the City of Allegan, the Allegan Police Department and the School District were named as defendants in a thirty-four page civil rights lawsuit filed in the Federal District Court for the Western District of Michigan, this morning. The claims included constitutional and contract violations. [Click here for copy of federal complaint]

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center commented, “It’s amazing how much clout CAIR has with the political establishment of both parties in Lansing and throughout Michigan and the nation. This, despite the fact that CAIR has its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood, was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, and the FBI’s former chief of counterterrorism, noted that CAIR, its leaders, and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.”

Continued Thompson, “Press accounts make it clear that an indictment naming CAIR as a defendant in the Holy Land Foundation trial was squelched by Attorney General Holder’s office despite vehement objections by FBI agents and the federal prosecutors in Dallas.”

The TMLC federal lawsuit was brought on behalf of State Representative David Agema; a chapter leader of ACT! for America, Elizabeth Griffin; Allegan County Commissioner, Willis Sage; and Mark Gurley, one of the event sponsors.

The event in question, entitled, “Constituting Michigan – Founding Principles Act” took place on January 26, 2012 at an Allegan High School auditorium which had been rented by Willis Sage.

The purpose of the event was to inform the public about the importance of honoring the United States Constitution, to recognize the internal threat to America posed by radical Muslims and the dangers to our free society caused by the imposition of Sharia law.

At first the Allegan police chief police indicated he shut down the event because of threats to one of the speakers, Kamal Saleem; however, shortly thereafter, the chief admitted to a reporter that there was no specific threat to the event and no real danger at all. In fact, no specific threats of violence relating to the event were received by the City of Allegan, its police department, the Allegan Public School District or Allegan Public High School.

Police gave as their reason, the appearance of one of the featured speakers, Kamal Saleem, a former Muslim terrorist who converted to Christianity. Saleem has spoken at numerous high schools and universities, Christian churches and Jewish temples across the nation. He has also spoken at the U. S. Air Force Academy, Michigan’s State Capital, and Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. At no time before the Allegan event or afterwards has an event where he has spoken been shut down by law enforcement.

Sage notified the Allegan police chief ten days before the event and invited him to check out the background of Saleem, which he never did.

Erin Mersino is the TMLC attorney handling the case.

More on Plaintiffs

State Representative David Agema is an elected State Representative for the 74th District serving in Michigan’s House of Representatives. He is a sponsor of HB 4769 entitled “Restriction of Application of Foreign Laws Act” (based on the American Laws for American Courts Model Act), which bans the use of foreign laws including Sharia law, by courts and administrative bodies of the State, when those laws conflict with fundamental rights protected by the Constitutions of the United States and the State of Michigan. Defendant Walid, is an outspoken opponent of HB 4769.

Elizabeth Griffin is a chapter leader for the organization, ACT! for America, a non-partisan, non-sectarian organization whose mission is to give Americans concerned about national security, terrorism, and the threat of radical Islam, a powerful, organized, informed and mobilized voice. Griffin promotes the “Constituting Michigan – Founding Principles Act”, which would require Michigan public schools to teach the history and Constitution of the United States. Griffin also guides and mentors chapter leaders for various chapters of the ACT! for America organization, as well as educates concerned Americans about the threat of Islamic Sharia law to our system of law in the United States.

Willis Sage is a County Commissioner for the County of Allegan, Michigan. Sage is the author of the “Constituting Michigan – Founding Principles Act,” which would require Michigan public schools to teach the history and constitution of the United States. He organized the event and rented the room at Allegan High School where the free speech event was held.

Plaintiff Mark Gurley was a sponsor of the event and paid for the airfare of Kamal Saleem. He is also an advocate of HB 4769, “Restriction of Application of Foreign Laws Act” (based on the American Laws for American Courts Model Act), sponsored by Plaintiff Agema.

Defendants’ pretextual claim that the free speech event needed to be shut-down for safety reasons subverts the true cause for halting the free speech event: complying with the demands of CAIR.

God bless ACT for America! ACT is keeping an eye on Muslim Brotherhood front groups like ISNA that has used victimhood to dhimmify the FBI into rewriting their counterterrorism manual.

 

In an ACT email I received on April 24 an alert is provided on the pressure this Radical Islamic Muslim-American organization is utilizing on the FBI that in essence gives freer reign of the Radical Islamic agenda to proceed in America.

 

The alert update includes a video interview with Rep. Allen West followed by an ISNA article that portrays them as defending Islam from the victimization from the FBI.

Why are we so concerned about what appear to be hundreds of pages of revisions to FBI counterterrorism training materials?

Among many reasons, here’s one.

As ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) reported on February 14th, (see ISNA’s release below), the organization met with top leadership of the FBI to discuss concerns about the training materials.

Who is ISNA?

 

·         It’s connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, it is the first organization listed in the back of the Muslim Brotherhood’s “explanatory memorandum” which calls for a “civilization jihad” against America.

 

·         It was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial.

 

·         It condemned the post 9/11 seizure of Hamas assets by our government. Hamas is a designated terrorist organization.

 

We could provide you a lot more information, but you get the point. As we point out in a DVD entitled “Unmasking the Enemy Among Us,” the Muslim Brotherhood and its front organizations such as ISNA are experts at information warfare. (This DVD is available on our Donate page.)

Now ISNA is advising the FBI on what should be in our counterterrorism training materials! In fact, scroll to the end of ISNA’s release and you’ll see it calls this is a “first step.”

If you have not yet signed our open letter to congressional chairmen asking them to investigate what the FBI is doing, PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME TODAY.

Immediately below is a two minute interview with Rep. Allen West on the issue of the FBI training materials. Rep. West will be the keynote speaker at this year’s National Conference & Legislative Briefing.

ISNA & Nat. Orgs. Meet with FBI Dir. to Discuss Biased FBI Training Materials

http://www.isna.net/articles/News/ISNA–Nat-Orgs-Meet-with-FBI-Dir-to-Discuss-Biased-FBI-Training-Materials.aspx

 

(Feb 14, 2012) In a continuing effort to address concerns related to inflammatory training material, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently met with community and interfaith organizations to provide an update on steps taken by the agency to rectify the matter. On Wednesday, February 8, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), the Arab American Institute (AAI), Interfaith Alliance, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Muflehun, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF), and the Shoulder-to-Shoulder campaign had an opportunity to discuss the matter with the Public Affairs Office of the FBI. Director Robert Mueller joined the meeting to discuss these matters with the representatives from the organizations.

The conversation with Director Mueller centered on material used by the agency that depicts falsehoods and negative connotations of the Muslim American community. The use of the material was first uncovered by Wired Magazine in an article published on September 14, 2011. Director Mueller informed the participants that the FBI took the review of the training material very seriously, and he pursued the matter with urgency to ensure that this does not occur again in the future.

ISNA President Imam Magid stated, “The discovery of FBI training materials that discriminated against Muslims did damage to the trust that was built between dedicated FBI officials and American Muslim community. We welcome and appreciate Director Mueller’s commitment to take positive steps toward eradicating such materials and rebuilding trust and an open dialogue.”

The Director also informed participants that to date, nearly all related FBI training materials, including more than 160,000 pages of documents, were reviewed by subject matter experts multiple times. Consequently, more than 700 documents and 300 presentations of material have been deemed unusable by the Bureau and pulled from the training curriculum. Material was pulled from the curriculum if even one component was deemed to 1) include factual errors, 2) be in poor taste, 3) be stereotypical, or 4) lack precision.

The meeting also provided an opportunity to share with Director Mueller other matters of concern to community members. Issues related to privacy, including the surveillance of mosques, were discussed. It was clear to all meeting participants that the issue of trust between community members and the FBI needs to be taken seriously by all of our nation’s decision-makers. It was also evident that the Bureau must strengthen its efforts to build trust. The Director has testified before Congress about the invaluable contribution that the Muslim community makes to our nation’s security, noting a recent bomb plot in Tampa, FL that was foiled thanks to a joint effort by the FBI and the local Muslim community.

The changes proposed by the FBI to the training modules are a welcomed first step in ensuring that such a mistake does not occur again in the future. The group asked the FBI Director to issue a formal statement on this matter acknowledging the negative impact of these training materials on the Muslim community. Representatives from the community and interfaith organizations also stressed the importance of transparency by the Bureau in dealing with these matters, and suggested that a committee of community leaders and experts be assembled to review training material issued by the FBI. Meeting participants requested that the training process be open and transparent moving forward, and requested future meetings with Director Mueller to continue the conversation.

URGENT – STOP CHANGES TO FBI COUNTERTERRORISM MATERIALS!!!


Terror Lexicon

Click Lexicon for larger image

 

We all know that when President Barack Hussein Obama took Office in January 2009 that he began to dhimmify American government by removing references to the violence that is inherent in the dark side of Islam. Thus Federal government referencing of Radical Islam, Islamic terrorism or the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) were reduced by Big Brother speak something like standard felonious crime of the usual suspects, Enemy Combatants and more.

 

It seems it has taken about three years for the Obama-Islam mentality to filter into the FBI for it seems the nation’s premier law enforcement agency is filtering words that are deemed insulting to Islam when dealing with Muslims.

 

ACT for America has picked up on the new FBI agenda undoubtedly influenced by the Obama Administration. ACT for America wants to make your Congressman and Senator aware of forcing politics rather than the appropriate use of Counterterrorism that would focus on the largest group of terrorists currently functioning within the USA; i.e. the political side of Islam. In Islam the political nature is as important as the religious nature; indeed one can almost say they are interchangeable.

Help us STOP proposed changes to FBI counterterrorism training materials!!!

 

URGENT action needed! Add your name to open letter to Congress TODAY!!!

 

According to a recent CQ article (see below, highlights added), FBI leadership is moving forward with a plan that could purge from its counterterrorism training materials “references to Muslims…that it deemed offensive.” As we all know, groups like CAIR want EVERY reference to radical Islam removed because they deem ANY terrorism reference to Islam “offensive.”

We have learned that this potential capitulation by the FBI leadership to politically-correct special interest pressure has some Members of Congress concerned—and they should be.

So are we. And so should you.

With annual congressional hearings addressing the FBI just around the corner, we need to take action NOW to make sure the appropriate congressional committees are aware that there is opposition to these proposed changes from the folks back home. As you know, it’s almost impossible to get Congress to take action on something unless they feel some “heat” from their constituents.

This is why it’s critical we make our voices heard on this important issue NOW! And it’s essential that we speak out loud and strong!

The first step in addressing this issue is an open letter to the chairmen of the appropriate House and Senate committees. Some of these committees are scheduled to hold hearings on the FBI very soon. THEY NEED TO HEAR FROM TENS OF THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS that making changes to counterterrorism training manuals without any congressional input, to appease political correctness, is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE, because doing so WILL MAKE US LESS SAFE!!!!

 

Please add your name to this open letter and forward it to everyone you know. Please don’t delay. We only have a few weeks to mobilize opposition to these foolish, ill-advised proposed changes before the U.S. Congress discusses issues related to the FBI. We need to be sure that when they do, our federal legislators have the benefit of knowing that many Americans are opposed to these changes.

The Obama administration has already purged all references to radical Islam and jihad from its national strategic threat assessments. We can’t let this happen at the FBI as well. FBI agents in the field need to have training materials that accurately define the threat—for their safety and for ours.

We CAN stop these changes from happening, IF WE ACT.

So please, take action TODAY. It will only take a few moments of your time, but it will have a tremendous impact. Add your name to our open letter to congressional committee chairmen and forward this message to everyone you know!


Afternoon Take: FBI to Change Counterterrorism Training Policies

By Chad Brand, CQ Staff

The FBI is reportedly amending its training materials to eliminate references to Muslims and Arab-Americas that it deemed offensive, a change at least one high-ranking Democratic senator has championed.

The bureau recently notified Congress that it removed the references it deemed offensive, along with language saying that agents had the ability to suspend the law and impinge on the freedoms of others in the course of investigations, the New York Times reported. The story noted that Sen. Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., wrote to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, earlier this week about the training material.

Durbin’s letter raised concerns that an internal review of its training materials by the bureau uncovered evidence of instructions for agents to make assumptions about Islam, Muslims and Arab Americans based on crude stereotypes, including language such as “Islam is a highly violent religion,” and “mainstream American Muslims are likely to be terrorist sympathizers.”

Durbin asked the FBI make the training materials public and hold accountable the individuals responsible for the language deemed offensive.

Rep. Trent Franks, one of a group of House Republicans that has questioned whether the Obama administration’s review of its counterterrorism training policies put politics over security, said he was unhappy with what he called the FBI’s lack of communication with Congress about its training manual reviews. The Arizona Republican said he wants details about who advised the FBI during the process.

“The FBI must not permit outside parties to censor the true or critical material from FBI training curricula just because someone feels it to be politically incorrect,” he told CQ. “We want to know who these outside reviewing parties are, what their affiliations are, and whether they are being permitted in some instances to overrule the judgment of seasoned FBI trainers.”

Learn the Islam that Apologists will not Tell YOU About


Shariah Compliant Public Schools

 

John R. Houk

© March 20, 2012

 

You do realize it is important to teach religion as history in public schools. It is important because the culture we live in today is largely the result of Greek, Roman and Judeo-Christian culture. People should know the roots of their culture to understand the present.

 

Since 9/11 the American education system has been drawn to add more information in text books for grade levels six through twelve. That is understandable because prior to 9/11 Americans thought of Muslims more as Arabs. And Arabs were thought of as camel jockeys stuck in medieval mode in a modern age.

 

The image is not exactly a complimentary one in the description of Muslims. The 9/11 attack perpetrated on American soil did little to brush up that image with the American mind. The majority of the Muslim terrorists that hijacked jets were of Saudi Arabian origin and all were at least Middle Eastern.

 

The fact that the terrorists were from a nation in which Radical Islam is the State Religion of the land is important to know. The Saudi kingdom is dominated by Wahhabism. The purist Islam of the Wahhabis is derived from a Sunni Muslim Cleric that lived in the 18th century. The founder of Wahhabism is Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab (c. 1702–c. 1791).

 

The 9/11 terrorists were influenced by the Wahhabism of Saudi Arabia (the bin Laden al Qaeda origin); the Wahhabis are not the only Caliphate minded Radical Islamic (i.e. purist Islam) groups around. There are others. I will not pretend to make an exhaustive list here but here are a few other Radical Muslim groups:

 

Salafists:

 

Jihadi ideology is based today on what is commonly known as Salafism, an ambiguous concept that has served to designate various and very different movements throughout the years. The term is derived from the word Salaf, which means to precede. In Islamic vocabulary, it is used to describe the followers of al Salaf al salih, the virtuous fathers of the faith who were the companions of the Prophet. The group includes the first three generations of Muslims.[1] Since they learned Islam directly from the Prophet, they understood the true meaning of the religion. Salafis aim to eradicate the impurities introduced during centuries of religious practice. Interpretations not based on the original sources of the religion are viewed as distortions that lead Muslims to stray from the path of God. Salafis have constructed a method (manhaj) to help the search for religious truth. It is a methodology for determining the correct interpretation of the religion, based on the Koran, the Sunna, and the example of the first Muslims.

 

The method is based on a series of core concepts, foremost among them the tawhid or belief in the uniqueness of God.[2] Another essential concept in Salafi ideology is bid’a or any innovation in the faith. Salafis argue that since the Koran and Sunna reveal the true nature of Islam, any innovation is a distortion of the path to God and is therefore to be rejected.[3] Salafis also devote considerable attention to the science of the hadiths, and call themselves the People of the Hadith (Ahl al-Hadith).In their opinion, the hadiths are, according to the Koran, the most important source of religious knowledge and guidance, providing the best example of how Islam was practiced when it was first introduced. Hence, many Salafi scholars devote themselves to the science of the hadiths in order to eliminate those that are false and thus be able to propose an exact version of the tradition of the Prophet. Lastly, Salafis consider the division of Muslims into separate schools to be unacceptable, because there can only be one correct interpretation or opinion. One of the main problems the Muslim community is experiencing is precisely this blind adherence or imitation (taqlid) of a particular school. Salafis insist, therefore, that the truth is to be found in the sources, not in the texts written by jurists.

 

Salafism is thus a path and a method to search for religious truth, a desire to practice Islam exactly as it was revealed by the Prophet. The Salafi mission is grounded on avoidance of bid’a and shirk, strict adherence to the principle of tawhid and a desire to transcend the differences between the various schools, as well as the quest for religious truth in the original sources of Islam.[4]

 

 

… The most radical Salafis base their interpretation of jihad on the writings of Ibn Taymiyya [10] and, like him, they consider that actions by governments that are contrary to Islamic law can be considered proof in order to declare them non-believers. The takfir thus became an instrument that could be used to oppose any regime whatsoever through armed struggle.

 

 

In tandem with the evolution of Salafism, jihadi ideology gradually gained ground in Afghanistan and eventually merged with Salafism. Its chief proponent was Abdallah Azzam, who in 1984, founded the Maktab al-Khidamat (MAK), an office for recruiting Arabs to fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Azzam was to have a decisive influence on Usama bin Ladin. In his work, The Main Obligation of Muslims is to Defend the Land of Islam, Azzam writes that jihad is a moral obligation for all Muslims, the sixth pillar of the faith. Using an epic and mystic language, he sets out a vision of the world based on strict Salafism and on calls to martyrdom, stressing the permanent state of humiliation suffered by the umma, as a result of the actions of crusaders and Zionists. His work was to have a decisive influence on the jihadi radicalism of the 1990s.[12]

 

 

The global proliferation of fighting Salafism and its fusion with jihadi ideology were further consolidated under bin Ladin. His declaration of war on the West-backed by the creation in 1998 of the World Islamic Front for Jihad against Jews and Crusaders caused groups that had originally been set up to provide logistical support to al-Qa’ida (e.g. the Islamic Group of Moroccan Combatants) and had originally sought to purify and punish society, to now set their sights on the West. The struggle was no longer confined to the nearest enemy but also to those further away. Fighting Salafism assumed the role of globalizing the jihad born out of the Afghan experience and became the core ideology of the new radical Islamism.  

 

 

Salafism is first and foremost a method for the search of the religious truth; a desire to practice Islam exactly as it was revealed by the Prophet. It is a religious method whose influence has spread throughout the Arab world and also in Europe, thanks to the support received from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, which have helped expand this peculiar vision of Islam that is very close to Wahhabism. Its influence is on the rise and it has successfully impregnated several Islamist movements, including some sectors of the Muslim Brotherhoods. …

 

The fighting version of Salafism has also become the core ideology of the global jihadism sponsored by al-Qaida and the radical utopia of Abdallah Azzam. This ideology, aided by the proselytizing work of radical clerics, has led to the emergence in Europe of small groups with the capability to carry out independent terrorist strikes. … [Excerpted from a very long essay – Read Details in Entirety.

Barelvi Islam:

 

The Legacy Of Syed Ahmad Barelvi In India

 

By R. Upadhyay

October 30, 2010

Eurasia Review

[Excerpts]

 

 

Despite the continuity of Islamic rule for centuries in larger parts of the sub-continent, the Muslim community in India was sharply divided into two exclusive segments namely those who were the descendents of Arab, Turk, Iranian and Afghan conquerors known as Ashraf (Noble Muslims) and those neo-convert Indians who were known as Ajlafs (Low category Muslims). Since the priestly class of this society mostly remained aligned with Ashrafs, orthodox Islam did not penetrate deep into the daily lives of the Muslim proletariat (Ajlafs) who maintained continuous emotional link with their Hindu past and were even practicing their pre-Islamic customs and celebrations. Therefore, Waliullah’s movement was meant for purifying the Ajlafs. It is said that Waliullah era was the beginning of Muslim renaissance following the decline of Islamic rule.

 

After the death of Waliullah in 1762 , his son Abdul Aziz (1746-1822) succeeded him in the theological saddle of Delhi and carried forward the ideological heritage of his father’s movement. Since the Marathas were already on retreat after their defeat by Abdali in the third battle of Panipat in 1761 and the British were marching towards Delhi, he converted the movement launched by his father into Jihad against the British after declaring India as Darul Harb (House of war). When the British army marched to Delhi in 1803 and Mogul emperor became a British vassal, he also issued a fatwa appealing to the Muslims for launching Jihad against the British and for restoring the rule of Islamic glory. Finding his disciple one Syed Ahmad Barelvi who was born in November 1786 in Rai Bareilley in the present Uttar Pradesh and belonged to the family distantly related to his family suitable for leading the Jihad, … Later he sent Ahmad Barelvi to Mecca in order to acquire the ideological knowledge of Islam from the Wahhabi clerics of Arabia. During course of his stay in Arabia he was greatly influenced with the spirit of Wahhabism and returned to India sometime in the early years of 1820s.

 

On his return from Mecca, Ahmad Barelvi also known as founder of Wahhabi movement in India, founded an organization namely Tariqah-i Muhhamdiyah (The Way of the Prophet Muhammad) and designated himself as Amir al Mumin (Commander of the Believers). Fully inspired with Waliullah’s political thought for converting the Ajlafs into true Islamists, he toured the length and breadh (sic) of the country particularly Bihar, Bengal, Punjab and Kashmir and found that the Ajlafs were still following Islam within their pre-Islamic cultural mindset like visiting even the Hindu mystics, also following their recommendations for overcoming their worldly problems, having no inhibition in wearing their pre-Islamic dresses. They constituted the larger majority of Muslim society and were therefore the main target area of Barelvi for their brainwashing and turning them into full-fledged Muslims.

Barelvi Islam

 

GlobalSecurity.org

[Excerpts]

 

Deobandis and Barelvis are the two major groups of Muslims in the Subcontinent apart from the Shia. Barelvi Hanafis deem Deobandis to be kaafir. Those hostile to the Barelvis deprecated them as the shrine-worshipping, the grave-worshiping, ignorant Barelvis. …

 

 

The differences between these sects can be difficult to understand. For the Barelvis, (who are mostly from the Pakistan province of Punjab) the holy Prophet is a superhuman figure whose presence is all around us at all times; he is hazir, present; he is not bashar, material or flesh, but nur, light. The Deobandis, who also revere the Prophet, argue he was the insan-i-kamil, the perfect person, but still only a man, a mortal. Barelvis emphasise a love of Muhammad, a semi-divine figure with unique foreknowledge. The Deobandis reject this idea of Muhammad, emphasising Islam as a personal rather than a social religion.

 

 

… The Wahhabi (Arabia), Deobandi (Pakistan and India) and Jamaat-I-Islami all are anti-sufi, and against the over devotion to Muhammad, whereas the Barelvis emphasize Muhammad’s uniqueness. Indeed, nearly 85% of South Asia’s Sunni Muslims are said to follow the Barelvi school, closer to Sufism. The remaining 15% of Sunnis follow the Deobandi school, more closely related to the conservative practice of Islam. Most Shiites in the subcontinent also tend to be influenced by the Sufis. Pakistan’s Muslims, like other Muslims in the region, tend to follow a school of Islam which is less conservative, and hence the support for strongly and overtly religious parties has been minimal.

Sufi Militants Struggle with Deobandi Jihadists in Pakistan

 

Article from Jamestown Foundation (JF Homepage)

Pub. Date: 24 February 2011

Refworld (affiliated with UNHRC)

 

As Punjab governor Salman Taseer came out of a restaurant in an upscale area of Islamabad, one of his bodyguards uttered the slogan “Allahu Akbar” and fired on the man he was supposed to guard, killing him on the spot. The assassin in the January 4 killing, Malik Mumtaz Qadri, belonged to the Elite Punjab Police, a force specially trained in counterterrorism work and the protection of important individuals (Dawn [Karachi], January 5). Qadri was also believed to be associated with the South Asian Barelvi Sufi movement. The other bodyguards from the elite force did not try to stop him and the smiling Qadri surrendered to his fellow officers after he made sure the governor was dead. He later told the police that he had killed the governor because Taseer had insulted the Prophet of Islam by describing Pakistan’s controversial blasphemy laws as “black laws.” …

 

 

… the killer belonged to the Dawat-e-Islami, a Barelvi Sufi group which normally shuns violence and has been in the forefront of the struggle against Deobandism (a conservative Sunni religious movement that has become associated with militancy) and the Ahle Hadith jihadi groups. Founded in 1984 as a small group around Pir (spiritual leader) Mohammad Ilyas Attar Qadri, Dawat-e-Islami grew into a formidable organization by the mid-1990s when more than 100,000 persons gathered at its periodic ijtimahs (conventions). [1] Pir Ilyas Attar Qadri had sensed Deobandi extremism would grow as a result of the Afghan jihad and wanted to organize the Ahle Sunnat to face that challenge. However, Pir Ilyas believed in peaceful resistance. [2] Surprisingly, the Dawat-e-Islami is loosely structured on the model of the Deobandi Tablighi Jamaat (an international Islamic reform movement). …

 

 

Formation of the Sunni Tehrik

Pir Ilyas Qadri’s reluctance to adopt violence against Deobandi jihadi groups led to a mini-rebellion among his followers, particularly those who had studied at Barelvi madrassahs. Consequently, a small group led by Saleem Qadri founded the Sunni Tehrik in 1990. Saleem Qadri wanted to meet Deobandi violence with more violence, as Pir Ilyas Qadri’s “non-violence was not taking the Barelvis anywhere.” [4] However, Saleem Qadri did not break his religious allegiance to Pir Ilyas Qadri even after leaving his group, nor did he ask his followers to break links with the Dawat-e-Islami. This approach worked and soon the ranks of the Sunni Tehrik swelled. The membership of the Dawat-e-Islami and the Sunni Tehrik also overlaps at the lower levels with several other Barelvi groups.

The Sunni Tehrik was the first Barelvi group to articulate the demands of the majority Barelvi sect and to use violence to achieve them. Their four basic demands were:

• The protection of Ahle Sunnat beliefs.

• The protection of the rights of the Ahle Sunnat.

• The protection of Ahle Sunnat mosques.

• The protection of the Ahle Sunnat awqaf (religious endowments), such as shrines. [5]

The Sunni Tehrik was ready to use violence to achieve the last two demands in response to Deobandi groups’ use of violence to take over Barelvi mosques and awqaf property.  

 

 

… the most important thing was that the Jamaat Ahle Sunnat had adopted the Sunni Tehrik narrative of a forceful defense of Barelvi interests as its own. The Jamaat Ahle Sunnat emerged much stronger after the convention and began to play a major part in the country’s Islamist politics.

 

 

The assassination of Governor Salman Taseer shows that Sufi Islamism can be a bulwark against or an alternative to Deobandi and Ahle Hadith jihadism but it is in its own way as great a threat to international security as the militancy of the Deobandi and Ahle Hadith movements.

Deobandi Islam: The Religion of the Taliban

Information provided and used with permission from the Defense Language Institute at: wrc.lingnet.org (Google goes HERE for the link)

PDF dated: 2001

 

 

From its inception the school at Deoband made a sharp distinction between ‘revealed’ or sacred knowledge, and ‘human’ or secular knowledge. The school excluded all learning that was not obviously Islamic by firmly rejecting other religious traditions (the Hinduism of India and the Christianity of the British missionaries) and forbidding Western-style education and the study of any subjects not directly related to the study of the Quran.

 

The school was also highly critical of Islam as it was practiced in the modern world, especially India. They felt the established religious order had made too many compromises with its foreign environment and therefore Islam needed to be purified of these foreign elements. To live out the pure Islamic tradition they embraced Taqlid (acceptance of the old interpretations) and rejected ijitehad or reinterpretation of Islamic precepts to accommodate the changing times. It should also be noted that they are strict adherents to the Hanafi school of thought.xii

 

 

… In the late 19th and early 20th century the Deobandi school was embroiled, and to a great extent preoccupied, in a verbal “fatwa war” with the Bid’ati school. With more than a quarter of a million fatwas (legal opinions) being issued on some of the most ordinary issues of daily life, the fatwa war helped the Deobandi scholars clarify their thinking. It also served to harden their deeply conservative theological and ethical positions. As a result of the fatwa war the Dar-ul-Uloom madressa became much more traditional than it was when first established in 1866. That is, it moved much further to the right than the founding fathers would have ever imagined.

 

As the school grew in years it also grew in size and prestige. xiii Dar-ul-Uloon became ‘the’ place to prepare young men to become educated in the Islamic tradition. …

 

 

Indian independence from British rule in 1947 was met with a bloody partitioning of the subcontinent into two independent nations…India and Pakistan. …

 

Dar-ul-Uloon however, had a strong history as a hotbed for anti-British activities that were fueled by its conservative, uncompromising theological stance. After the creation of the nation of Pakistan in 1947 numerous satellite Deobandi madressas sprung up throughout Pakistan. These madressas carried on not only the strict Deobandi theological tradition but also its political activism, only now the target had changed. It was no longer the English but the Indian oppression of Muslims in the disputed area of Kashmir that inspired resentment. Later, with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 this resentment would expand to include communism. After the Soviets left the U.N. and the U.S. became demonized as the foreign invading and corrupting powers that threatened the pure expression of Islam.

 

 

In the spring of 1994 two teenage girls from the village of Sang Hesar were abducted by the majahedim and repeatedly raped at the local checkpoint. Mohammed Omar, a retired Afghan commander studying at a local madressa, gathered 30 fellow taliban (students) and mounted a successful rescue. The Majahedim commander was hung from a slowly ascending tank-barrel. This was the birth of a movement that came to be known as the Taliban.

 

 

The majahedim were Islamists who carried the banner of Islam and combated secularism and then communism in Afghanistan. Islamists are modernists who seek a contemporary political interpretation of Islam. Educationally they tilt towards Al-Azhor University in Egypt where they have been strongly influence by the political orientation of the fundamentalist group the Muslim Brotherhood. Because they drew from this model other governments were quick to recognize their authority and they were able to form highly organized political parties.

 

The Taliban are traditionalists who have only entered the political stream in Afghanistan since 1994. They view the roll (sic) of government and society very differently from the majahedim. They do not see Islam in political terms but in religious terms. They seek to return to the purity of the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah (the practices of the Prophet). They are products of religious madrassas in Pakistan whose roots go back to the Dar-ul-Uloon seminary in Debond, India. Their history makes the Taliban inclined to organize themselves around regional associations rather than political parties.

 

Religious edicts are believed to have a divine source so they carry more authority in this society than humanitarian law that stress individual freedoms. The purpose of government is to be a reflection of the divine will (as interpreted by the Deobondi scholars), not a guardian of individual rights and liberties as insisted upon by the West.

So what the heck, John? Why are you rehashing these theo-political strains of Radical Islam?

 

Well feel lucky, I was going to examine some of the organization – I mean – terrorists that adhere to these Radical Islamic ideologies. You know like the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah, CAIR, Jamaat ul-Fuqra and so on.

 

The point of this exercise is that American text books are leaving this kind of information out. Since these organizations look back to purist Islam. It is important to tell American students that the Islam that inspires these Islamic terrorists and Radical Muslims is the Islam of Mohammed and the following so-called Rightly Guided Caliphs (i.e. First four Caliphs that were actual buddies with Mo).

It is with great delight that I announce to you that today we released “Education or Indoctrination? The Treatment of Islam in 6th through 12th Grade American Textbooks.”

 

ACT! for America Education Executive Director Guy Rodgers and I began discussing this project nearly four years ago. Today, that project is a reality—and I believe that one year from now you and I will look back on this as a truly historic accomplishment that helped change the course of education in America.

This report shines a bright light on a pattern of errors, omissions and bias in the textbooks reviewed. Our children deserve better. Our children deserve facts and accuracy, not historical revisionism.

To give you just one example of the errors our research uncovered, in discussing the 9/11 attacks, the textbooks typically fail to mention the perpetrators were Muslims or that they acted in the cause of Islamic jihad. In one book the terrorists are portrayed as people fighting for a cause. In just a few years after September 11th, the history of what happened on that tragic day was rewritten in our school textbooks. Omitting this vital information, that jihad was the motivation for the attacks, makes it difficult, if not impossible, for today’s young teens, who don’t remember 9/11, to really understand what happened that day—and why.

Please forward this email to anyone and everyone you know. Help us get the word out far and wide! Over the next few months we hope to wake up America to what this report has uncovered!

To access the report log on to www.ACTforAmericaEducation.com/. Once there you will find the following:

·         The full Report;

 

·         Sub-reports, sorted by each textbook publisher;

The few have always made a difference in this crazy, dangerous but wonderful world we live in. This is our time, those of us who “get it” and are concerned about the direction of our future, to come together and work together to make a difference for our country and our future generation.

I am honored to put my hand in yours and work with you to ensure our children receive the best historical education, and America remains the greatest and brightest nation on earth.

Is Obama is Leading USA to Radical Islamic Interests?


Netanyahu in BHO Lion's Den

John R. Houk

© February 21, 2012

 

In March 2011 FBI Director Robert Mueller notified the public via House Judiciary testimony that the FBI had cut all ties with the Council on American-Islamic Affairs (CAIR) pertaining to consulting about FBI sensitivity concerning Muslims in America. Why, you may ask? It is because the largest trial connecting a Muslim Charity to financing Islamic terrorism (HLF trial) implicated many American-Islamic organizations to Hamas. CAIR was one of those Islamic organizations that were listed as an unindicted co-conspirator (Attachment A-III-11) in the HLF trial. Now a propaganda lie by Leftists and Islamic Apologists may be forthcoming that CAIR’s name was removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals; however closer attention to the ruling shows the twisting of facts.

 

Here is the reality of CAIR’s unindicted co-conspirator status according to the Appeals Court ruling from Z Street via Atlas Shrugs (Hat Tip Jihad Watch):

 

10/25/10 Our attention was caught by a JTA story that suggested all of us CAIR-haters may not have CAIR to kick around anymore because of a court decision.  But after reading the article, and the Politico article upon which the JTA apparently relied, we decided to do something radical and read the actual opinion.

RELAX everyone, we still have CAIR to kick around.  And ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and NAIT (North American Islamic Trust).  You see, the courts did NOT decide that CAIR or its fellow-terrorist-travelers are not actually terrorists or not actually terrorist enablers.

What the courts did was rule that the government should not have made public a document it attached to a brief in May, 2007, which the government then referred to as a list of unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing case.  The case determined that the so called Islamic Charity actually existed almost exclusively to support Hamas, the Arab Palestinian terrorist entity.

In fact, thank you so much to CAIR and to ISNA and to NAIT.  In the course of trying to get the courts to clear their “good” names, those organizations gave the courts and the government lawyers nearly half a dozen opportunities to point out that the government presented evidence during the trial of the organizations’ connections to Hamas.  In other words – the fact that there was a violation of the organizations’ Fifth Amendment rights because the organizations were publicly named as having close connections to terrorist entities in a document – and the organizations had no opportunity to defend themselves in that document – really didn’t amount to a hill of beans because evidence was introduced at trial of those same connections. In fact, the government witness, testifying under oath, referred to CAIR as a Hamas front group.

 

So you would think that CAIR and fellow unindicted co-conspirators would continue to be anathema to the FBI as in consulting and in advisory situations, right?

 

Wrong!

 

The FBI under Director Robert Mueller and undoubtedly under the directive of the Obama Administration is bowing the knees to the will of Islamist groups at home (e.g. CAIR) and in foreign venues (e.g. Muslim Brotherhood) to stifle liberal pro-democracy Muslims from promoting a secular democratic government. I mean Mueller is consulting Hamas, Hezbollah, Muslim Brotherhood and MB affiliates in America about keeping the voice of reason submitted to Radical Islam.

 

The Obama Administration (and the Bush Administration beforehand) has gone to great efforts to proclaim America is not at war with Islam. On the other hand Muslims of the purist persuasion (i.e. radical, Salafist, Wahhabi, Twelver et al) are at war with America. It is these purist Muslims that the Obama Administration is working out secret deals with. Now if the secret deal is to leave America and Americans alone, honestly I don’t have a problem with that. AND YET the Obama Administration needs to be as wise as a serpent and peaceful as a dove, which means part of Radical Islam’s theopolitical ideology is to deceive us Liberty-minded non-Muslim Americans. The practice is called taqiyya. Muslim apologists don’t like the term “deception” (the practice of deliberately making somebody believe things that are not true – Encarta dictionary N. America) for taqiyya, rather they prefer “dissimulation” (to disguise or hide true feelings, thoughts, or intentions - Encarta dictionary N. America). The Muslim apologist prefers “dissimulation” for it connotes self-preservation rather than the old saying O what wicked web we weave when we set out to deceive. You see self-preservation is a defensive noble thing.

 

When radical Muslims pick a war by offensive acts of terrorism there is more of a sense of Islamic Supremacist imperialism rather than self-protection. Now when the war goes badly for Islamic terrorists and the battle is brought to their backyard certainly there is a sense of self-preservation because war is a dirty business. In any case I believe taqiyya is closer to deception since America is the superior technological and military nation in comparison to any nation in which Sharia Law is the basis for the rule of law.

 

This means the American government cannot trust Islamic terrorist organization or radical Islamic organization in any kind of secret negotiations. In essence the Obama Administration is lending more credence to radical Muslims than liberal Muslims.

 

The question has to be: Why would the Obama Administration legitimize Radical Islam over Liberal Islam when the latter would serve the long term National Interests better?

 

One obvious reason would be Obama receiving the political benefits of the lack of confrontation with Radical Islamic influences including the Taliban of Afghanistan and of Iranian client terrorists Hezbollah. Obama could claim his Administration has diffused confrontation between America and haters of America. In this sense Obama is thinking reelection strategy that benefits his campaign more than the citizens of the USA OR one of America’s closest ally in Israel. If true, it would be reprehensible.

 

Another possible reason for the Obama Administration favoring Radical Islamic organizations (including terrorists) is because American Leftists may view Radical Islam as the hand writing on the wall as far as the future concerns. In this view the Obama Administration would be single handedly transforming Foreign Affairs to favor cozying up to Sharia Law based nations as an easier path than protecting the Jewish State of Israel which would mean TOTALLY throwing Israel under the bus for destruction. If true, this is equally if not more so reprehensible!

 

ACT for America is joining Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) in exposing the agenda that Obama is using your tax dollars for with Radical Muslims. I am posting the email that was sent as an alert to me.

Why did we put together last fall a comprehensive resource package entitled “Unmasking the Enemy Among Us: Information Warfare and the Muslim Brotherhood” (available here)?

Because we have seen what’s coming, spelled out below in this must-read piece (highlights added) that recently appeared on the Investigative Project on Terrorism website. It begins with a note from Steven Emerson detailing how radical Muslim organizations have, for all practical purposes, successfully co-opted the FBI.


February 16, 2012
A note from Investigative Project on Terrorism Executive Director Steven Emerson:

Please take the time to read this very important story [below] written by a courageous Egyptian liberal intellectual about the Islamist and Muslim Brotherhood lobbies in Washington and the Obama Administration’s secret collaboration with these pro-terrorist, anti-Western, anti-women, anti-American and anti-Semitic organizations. This is one of the most important articles I have read in years.

It was just revealed two days ago that FBI Director Mueller secretly met on February 8 at FBI headquarters with a coalition of groups including various Islamist and militant Arabic groups who in the past have defended Hamas and Hizballah and have also issued blatantly anti-Semitic statements. At this meeting, the FBI revealed that it had removed more than 1000 presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices around the country that was deemed “offensive.” The FBI did not reveal what criteria was used to determine why material was considered “offensive” but knowledgeable law enforcement sources have told the IPT that it was these radical groups who made that determination. Moreover, numerous FBI agents have confirmed that from now on, FBI headquarters has banned all FBI offices from inviting any counter-terrorist specialists who are considered “anti-Islam” by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.

The February 8 FBI meeting was the culmination of a series of unpublicized directives issued in the last three months by top FBI officials to all its field offices to immediately recall and withdraw any presentation or curricula on Islam throughout the entire FBI. In fact, according to informed sources and undisclosed documents, the FBI directive was instigated by radical Muslim groups in the US who had repeatedly met with top officials of the Obama Administration to complain, among other things, that the mere usage of the term of “radical Islam” in FBI curricula was “offensive” and ‘racist.” And thus, directives went out by Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Mueller to censor all such material. Included in the material destroyed or removed by the FBI and the DOJ were powerpoints and articles that defined jihad as “holy war” or presentations that portrayed the Muslim Brotherhood as an organization bent on taking over the world—a major tenant that the Muslim Brotherhood has publicly stated for decades.

During the next several months, the IPT will be releasing a series of major investigative reports revealing the secret infiltration by and collaboration with radical Islamic organizations by the Obama administration that has spread to the National Security Council, the Dept of Justice, the FBI, the Dept of Homeland Security, the CIA and the State Department as well as local law enforcement.

Islamist Lobbies’ Washington War on Arab and Muslim Liberals

by Essam Abdallah
http://www.investigativeproject.org/3453/islamist-lobbies-washington-war-on-arab

The most dramatic oppression of the region’s civil societies and the Arab Spring is not by means of weapons, or in the Middle East. It is not led by Gaddafi, Mubarak, Bin Ali, Saleh, or Assad. It is led by the powerful Islamist lobbies in Washington DC. People may find my words curious if not provocative. But my arguments are sharp and well understood by many Arab and middle eastern liberals and freedom fighters. Indeed, we in the region, who are struggling for real democracy, not for the one time election type of democracy have been asking ourselves since January 2011 as the winds of Arab spring started blowing, why isn’t the West in general and the United States Administration in particular clearly and forcefully supporting our civil societies and particularly the secular democrats of the region? Why were the bureaucracies in Washington and in Brussels partnering with Islamists in the region and not with their natural allies the democracy promoting political forces?

Months into the Arab Spring, we realized that the Western powers, and the Obama Administration have put their support behind the new authoritarians, those who are claiming they will be brought to power via the votes of the people. Well, it is not quite so.

The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Nahda of Tunisia, the Justice Party of Morocco and the Islamist militias in Libya’s Transitional National Council have been systematically supported by Washington at the expense of real liberal and secular forces. We saw day by day how the White House guided carefully the statements and the actions of the US and the State Department followed through to give all the chances to the Islamists and almost no chances to the secular and revolutionary youth. We will come back to detail these diplomatic and financial maneuvers which are giving victory to the fundamentalists while the seculars and progressives are going to be smashed by the forthcoming regimes.

In the US, there are interests that determine foreign policy. And there are lobbies that put pressure to get their objectives met in foreign policy. One of the most powerful lobbies in America under the Obama Administration is the Muslim Brotherhood greater lobby, which has been in action for many years. This lobby has secured many operatives inside the Administration and has been successful in directing US policy towards the Arab world. Among leading advisors sympathetic to the Ikhwan is Daliah Mogahed (Mujahid) and her associate, Georgetown Professor John Esposito. Just as shocking, there is also a pro-Iranian lobby that has been influencing US policy towards Iran and Hezbollah in the region.

One of the most important activities of the Islamist lobby in the US is the waging of political and media wars on the liberal Arabs and Middle Eastern figures and groups in America. This battlefield is among the most important in influencing Washington’s policies in the Arab world. If you strike at the liberal and democratic Middle Eastern groups in Washington who are trying to gain support for civil societies in the region, you actually win a major battle. You will be able to influence the resources of the US Government to support the Islamists in the Middle East and not the weak democrats. This huge war waged by the Islamist lobbies in America started at the end of the Cold war and continued all the way till the Arab spring. The two main forces of this lobby are the Muslim Brotherhood fronts and the Iranian fronts. According to research available in the US, the Ikhwan fronts such as CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), led by Hamas supporter Nihad Awad, as well as the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Islamic Society of North America, and others waged their political war to block the representatives of Arab liberals and Muslim moderates from making their case to the American public. The Iranian lobby, exemplified by the National Iranian American Committee (NIAC), led by Trita Parsi, has been hitting at Iranian exiles.

Since the 1990s CAIR and its allies have attacked Copts, Southern Sudanese, Lebanese, Syrian reformers, Assyrians and Chaldeans, and Muslim dissidents in the United States. The Ikhwan of America demonized any publication, book, article, or interview in the national media or local press raising the issue of secular freedoms in the Middle East. The Islamists wanted to eliminate the liberal cause in the Arab world and replace it with the cause of the Islamists. What is also shocking is that CAIR and its allies stood by the oppressive regimes and visited them, claiming they speak on behalf of the peoples. CAIR and the Brotherhood fronts in America destroyed systematically every project that would have defended the seculars and liberals originating from the Middle East. The notorious and well-funded Islamists of the US allowed no book, documentary, or show on the liberals in Arab civil societies to see the light.

Thanks to this powerful lobbying campaign, the American public was not given a chance to learn about the deep feelings on the youth in the region. Americans were led to believe that all Muslims, all Arabs and all Middle Easterners were a strange species of humans who cannot appreciate freedom. Instead, the American Islamists, helped by apologists on the petrodollars payrolls, convinced the mainstream media that the Arab world has authoritarians and Islamists only.

Dr Shawki Karas, president of the American Coptic Association, told me in the late 1990s how he was harassed by Islamist activists for speaking up against the Mubarak regime and the Muslim Brotherhood in America. He was threatened with losing his job at the college where he taught. Reverend Keith Roderick, who has assembled a coalition of more than 50 group rights from the Muslim world, was severely attacked by the Islamists and was threatened to be removed from his church position. Muslim American leaders who are conservative and secular, such as Dr Zuhdi Jasser, were crucified by CAIR and the Brotherhood for daring to challenge the Party line of the Islamists in America and claiming that the Jihadists are the problem in the region. Muslim liberal dissidents such as Somali Ayan Hirsi Ali, Saudi Ali al Yammi, Syrian Farid Ghadri, Iranian Manda Ervin, and many others were trashed by the Islamist lobbies to block them from defending the causes of secular liberty in the US. Egyptian liberals as well as seculars and democracy activists from Iraq, Sudan, Syria, and other countries have been attacked by CAIR and allies. The pro-Iranian lobby targeted most Iranian-American groups and tried to discredit them, particularly with the rise of the Green Revolution in Iran. By smearing the Muslim liberal exiles, the Islamists were trying to destroy their causes in the mother countries. In the 1990s and the years that followed 9/11 the region’s dictators supported the efforts by Islamist lobbies to crush the liberal exiles. The Mubarak, Bashir, Gaddafi, Assad, and Khomeinist regimes fully supported the so-called Islamophobia campaign waged by CAIR and its Iranian counterpart NIAC against dissidents for calling for secular democracy in the region. The dissidents were accused of being pro-Western by both the Islamists and the dictators.

The Islamist lobbies also severely attacked members of the US Congress such as Democrats Tom Lantos, who has since passed away, Eliot Engel, Howard Berman, Gary Ackerman, and Joe Lieberman as well as Republicans Frank Wolfe, Chris Smith, Trent Franks, John McCain, Rick Santorum, and Sam Brownback for their efforts in passing legislative acts in support for democracy and liberty in the Middle East. CAIR and NIAC heavily savaged President Bush’s speeches on Freedom Forward in the Middle East, deploying all the resources they had to block US support to liberal democrats in the region. Islamist lobbies in Washington are directly responsible for killing any initiative in the US Government to support Darfur, southern Sudan, Lebanon, the Kurds, liberal women in the Muslim world, and true democrats in the Arab world and Muslim Africa.

In the think tank world, CAIR and its allies aggressively attacked scholars who raised the issue of persecution against seculars or minorities in the Arab world and Iran. Among those attacked were Nina Shea and Paul Marshal from the Hudson Institute and the founder of an anti-slavery group, Dr Charles Jacobs, who was exposing the Sudan regime for its atrocities. Last but not least is the Islamists’ relentless campaign to stirke (sic) at top scholars who advise Government and appear in the media to push for democratic liberation in the region. The vast and vicious attacks leveled against Professor Walid Phares—initially by CAIR’s Nihad Awad and then widened by pro-Hezbollah and Muslim Brotherhood operatives online—has revealed to Arab and Middle Eastern liberal and seculars how ferocious is the battle for the Middle East in the US. Phares’s books, particularly the latest one, The Coming Revolution: Struggle for Freedom in the Middle East (2010), hit the Islamist agenda hard by predicting the civil society revolts in the Middle East and then predicting how the Islamists would try to control them. Phares was attacked by an army of Jihadist militia online like no author since Samuel Huntington in the 1990s. As a freedom activist from the Middle East, Mustafa Geha, wrote, Phares is a hero to Muslim liberals. Along with dissidents, lawmakers, experts, and human rights activists, Phares is a force driving for a strategic change in US foreign policy towards supporting secular democracies in the region. This explains why the Islamists of America are fighting the battle for the forthcoming regimes with all the means they have.

Law Cuts Ties to Unindicted Co-conspirators


CAIR off FBI List

 

There have been many remarkably under reported terrorist trials. The most reported case was the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial. The original HLF trial ended in a hung jury. The retrial resulted in convictions to HLF defendants sending money to terrorist organization Hamas. The convictions and dismantlement of the terrorist supporting charity known as HLF produced the existence of a slew of Muslim-American organizations and individuals that were named as unindicted co-conspirators which prominent organizations falsely labeled as moderate such as CAIR, ISNA and NAIT.

 

CAIR is a Muslim-American organization that has supported Radical Islam and has expressed support the terrorist organization Hamas that has offered advice to the FBI on how to handle Muslims in investigations of terrorism. That was stupid. I believe a decent analogy would be something like Jesse James giving advice to U.S. Marshals on catching fellow James bank robbers the Younger brothers.

 

I thank God for smart Congressman and the idiot Congressmen which do not read bills in totality. Why? Congress passed a bill that forbids Law Enforcement to work with unindicted co-conspirators in an official capacity.

Law affirms FBI cutting ties to unindicted co-conspirator organizations

With Thanksgiving just two days away, something new to be thankful for!

 

Kudos to Patrick Poole and Pajamas Media for the article below (highlights added).

While the Obama administration is training Islamists in Egypt and cozying up to leaders of organizations like ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), Congress has passed legislation that includes language prohibiting the FBI from formal outreach to such groups.

We helped get legislation passed in Arizona and Tennessee that prevents courts from applying sharia law. Congress passes the legislation discussed below. Polls show ¾ of Americans oppose sharia law in our court system. It seems that more and more Americans are understanding the threat—except the Obama administration.

 

Help us prepare our strategy for state legislative action in 2012 by adding your name to the pledge of support to protect your state from sharia law. Over 36,000 people have done so thus far!

 

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

When Barack Obama signed the continuing resolution this past weekend averting another potential government shutdown, it’s doubtful that he was aware that tucked into the bill, which funds several federal agencies through the fiscal year and extends the continuing resolution for the rest of the government until December 16, is a provision that may dramatically impact what Islamic groups and leaders the FBI and other law enforcement agencies can continue to work with.

Under Division B, Title II of the bill, under the Federal Bureau of Investigation-Salaries and Expenses section, is the READ THE REST AT SlantRight 2.0.

Let’s Take on Radical Islam in America


Islam Exposed

ACT for America is probably in the forefront in America in educating about radical Islam and Stealth Jihad to infiltrate American government agencies and congresses on a Federal and State level to make it possible to achieve special favors for Islamic adherents that desire Sharia Law to evolve into the law of the land rather than the U.S. Constitution.

 

The successes of ACT for America has not gone unnoticed by Muslim-American organizations that claim the moniker of “moderate” when in fact nearly every large Muslim-American organization has connections to the radical Islam of the Muslim Brotherhood or the Wahhabi influence of Saudi Arabia.

 

Legal Jihad has been an effective tool for Muslim-American organizations to silence those that expose the agenda of radical Islam in America. One of the biggest thorns to the lying Muslim-American organizations is that the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial and convictions has exposed just how connected they are to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Palestinian proxy terrorist group Hamas.

 

Muslim-American organizations have begun the strategy learned from the Islamic terrorists of the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians. That strategy is to twist facts, fabricate and stage scenes to place blame on others and the good old fashioned outright lie.

 

Thus ACT for America is mobilizing a campaign to find 400 stable donators that are willing to give $19 monthly in order to meet the challenges of Legal Jihad and Stealth Jihad that now is focused on discrediting the credibility of ACT for America.

Attention to those who live around the Tulsa, OK metropolitan area!

 

ACT for America is sponsoring a rally for Paul Fields a Tulsa Police Department Officer unjustly punished for refusing to attend a Police appreciation day event at the Islamic Society of Tulsa (IST) Mosque. I understand that Fields was suspended without pay and demoted for refusing to attend the Mosque. IST is closely associated with the Muslim Brotherhood which is a radical Muslim branch of Islam, you know, the kind of Islam that wishes Muslims to follow a purist ideology which is largely responsible for Islamic terrorism today.

 

KNOWING this about IST and that Chief Chuck Jordan punished Paul Fields for refusing to attend a meeting at a Mosque associated with Radical Islam and knowing that IST was going to embark on a proselytizing Islamic message, Fields was fully within his Constitutional rights inherent in the First Amendment to refuse attendance WITHOUT an expectation of retribution.

 

WE MUST SHOW SUPPORT for Paul Fields by showing up to this rally in Tulsa, OK sponsored by ACT for America!

Help us Mobilize the Largest Crowd Possible For Police Captain Paul Fields At the Tulsa Rally on August 30

 

On Tuesday, August 30th, ACT! for America Executive Director Guy Rodgers and National Field Director Kelly Cook will be in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for our rally calling for the full reinstatement of Captain Paul Fields.

As you are probably aware, Captain Fields has been significantly punished by the Tulsa Police Dept for respectfully declining to attend a mandatory Friday afternoon indoctrination in a local Mosque. There was no call for police protection, only a mandate that the officers attend the Islamic worship service. It only became a mandatory requirement after Fields declined the initial “voluntary” request that he be there!

Can you imagine what would have happened if a Muslim police officer had been required to attend a Sunday morning worship service at a Christian church? The “politically correct” would have come unhinged—and frankly that is why this would never happen. The double standard on display here is breathtaking.

Captain Fields’ First Amendment rights have been violated. We refuse to stand by and let a good man be punished for simply following his personal convictions!

Will you join us in Tulsa to support this great man?

If you live in the area, plan to be in the area, or can travel from where you live, please join us for this important event!

 

***Action Items***

 

·       If you have friends or family who live in the area, or anyone you can think of who might be interested, please forward this email to them and encourage them to attend.

 

·       Bring a creative but respectful sign! Use your imagination. Here are a few suggestions:

 

o   “Personal Convictions Matter”

 

o   “Reinstate Captain Fields”

 

o   “We’re Standing With You Captain Fields”

 

o   “No More Double Standards”

 

o   “Freedom of Religion is Still in the Bill of Rights”

 

·       Contact your local church and encourage them to bring a busload to the rally!

 

o   Click Here for our press release. Give this to your church and ask that it be posted in the church.

 

o   Forward this email to your local church.

 

·       Bring a car load with you! Call your friends. Bring your kids—show them what it’s like to be an American and that it sometimes costs us time and energy to preserve our precious freedoms! Have fun! See event details below.

 

·       Thoughts on media at the event. If approached by a reporter, we respectfully ask that you refer them to one of the guest speakers at the event. Some in the media are quite adept at molding a “story” to reinforce their pre-conceived narrative.

 

Thank you for your serious consideration in helping us support Captain Fields. Rest assured the officials of the City of Tulsa (and cities across the nation!) will be watching. It is critical that we have a large show of support. We must send a message that people of conviction will be supported wherever injustice is served.

 

Here are the details:

WHEN: 10:00 A.M., Tuesday, August 30, 2011

WHERE: Chapman Centennial Green Park, 600 S. Main St, Tulsa

After the rally, we will walk the five blocks to City Hall and deliver the petition to Mayor Dewey Bartlett, who appointed Chuck Jordan to Tulsa Chief of Police last November. At that time Guy Rodgers will take questions from the media.

Islamic Apologetics Still Desire to Limit Free Speech


Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu - Hilary Clinton

 

John R. Houk

© August 18, 2011

 

The Organization of the Islamic Conference – NOW Cooperation (OIC) has been pushing Western nations to make any perceived insult of Islam as hate speech and a hate crime that should be prosecuted. This OIC agenda is nothing more than a push to prevent any criticism of the dark side of Islam by criminalizing Free Speech. This OIC agenda in affect also hampers Religious Freedom because it places all other religions (and atheism) in a position under Islamic Supremacism. The OIC agenda of criminalizing criticism of Islam is focused only on Islam. Islamic proponents on the other hand can write and speak any malicious opinion about any other religion. Islamic proponents habitually insult Judaism and Christianity. Judaism is on the top of that Islamic-hate list by calling Jews the descendants of pigs and apes or by writing about killing Jews wherever you can find them. These concepts come from Islamic holy writing such as the Quran and Hadith.

 

Many Nations with the USA leading the way condemned the original UNGA Resolution termed Defamation of Religions as focusing too little on Free Speech and Religious Freedom. The U.N. Human Right Commission then watered down the original Defamation of Religions Resolution to switch the focus from religions to individuals. This is to say the same measuring stick is used of what is considered hate speech or a hate crime; however if a person is incited to violence because he feels his religion was insulted then the defined inciters are responsible for any acts of violence. Thus the OIC is wagging it’s holier than all religions finger at the West because Anders Breivik massacred youths and adults to the tune of 76 because he hates Muslim immigrants. Someone should remind the OIC no Muslims were targeted by Breivik. Breivik targeted his own ethnic Norwegians as a part of his delusion to cause European chaos as a precursor to ushering in his New European Order.

 

The OIC has successfully lobbied at the U.N. General Assembly to pass a non-binding resolution to criminalize criticism of Islam. For a nation to make it illegal to criticize Islam all that is needed is to sign on to the UNGA Resolution. In America signing on to such a resolution would contradict the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that guarantees Free Speech and Religious Freedom to all.

 

The Gates of Vienna reporting on the new Resolution quotes public statements roughly given by OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu and Secretary of State of the USA Hilary Clinton at a human rights meeting in Istanbul, Turkey:

 

He [SlantRight Editor: i.e. Ihsanoglu] said challenges remain.

“However, the test would lie in the implementation. Having been successful at consensus building, we must now act in concert to build on the consensus. The adoption of the resolution does not mark the end of the road. It rather signifies a beginning based on a new approach to deal with the whole set of interrelated issues,” said Ihsanoglu. “Resolution 16/18 provides a good basis for concerted action by states, at both national and international levels and must be utilized accordingly. Otherwise, we would be faced with the unaffordable risk of the agenda being hijacked and set by radicals and non-state actors.”

Ihsanoglu said there was a delicate balance between freedom of expression and incendiary speech.

“We continue to be particularly disturbed by attitudes of certain individuals or groups exploiting the freedom of expression to incite hatred by demonizing purposefully the religions and their followers. Though we respect their freedom of opinion and expression, we find these attitudes politically and ethically incorrect and insensitive.”

At the meeting, Clinton discussed how to build on a UN Human Rights Council resolution passed on March 24 that calls for promoting tolerance and respect for diversity of beliefs, without restricting legitimate free speech.

Clinton agreed to pursue a new religious tolerance agreement, which respects free expression of religious beliefs in order to resolve debates over religion between the West and the Islamic world.

“Together we have begun to overcome the false divide that pits religious sensitivities against freedom of religion,” Clinton said. “We are pursuing a new approach based on concrete steps to fight intolerance wherever it occurs. “

Speaking of the United States, Clinton said: “We have seen in the United States how the incendiary actions of just a very few people can create wide ripples of intolerance, so we are focused on promoting interfaith education and collaboration, enforcing anti-discrimination laws, protecting the rights of all people to worship as they choose, and to use some old-fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming so that people don’t feel that they have the support to do what we abhor.”

[…]

She commended the Organization of Islamic Cooperation for its work securing the passage of Resolution 16/18 at the Human Rights Council.

“Resolution 16/18 calls upon states to protect freedom of religion, to counter offensive expression through education, interfaith dialogue, and public debate, and to prohibit discrimination, profiling, and hate crimes, but not to criminalize speech unless there is an incitement to imminent violence. We will be looking to all countries to hold themselves accountable and to join us in reporting to the UN’s Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights on their progress in taking these steps.” (Emphasis added by Gates of Vienna)

 

Note that Ihsanoglu’s used the term “freedom of expression”. Ihsanoglu is really meaning Free Speech. Ihsanoglu still wants the West to dilute Free Speech when it offends religion. By “religion” we all know he means Islam. The verbiage to include all religions is a mere bone to toss to the West to paint the mirage of fairness to all religions. As I stated above we know that Ihsanoglu is referring to Islam because he knows that not one nation in the Islamic dominated parts of the world will NOT limit Islamic Supremacism in its intolerance of other religions, especially the existence of Christianity and Judaism.

 

When Secretary Clinton claims there is a very few people causing “incendiary actions” “can create wide ripples of intolerance”. Do you think the incendiary actions are perhaps the work of violence advocating perhaps by the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis such as Skin Heads or Arian Nation types, extremist hate the government right wing militias, perhaps by violent pro-Jewish organization and violence advocating radical Muslims and so on?

 

Without being specific Secretary Clinton is speaking of anti-Jihad/expose the dark side of Islam writers and speakers. This is the category of people that drives Muslims from moderate to radical crazy because casts portions of Islam in a bad light. Those Muslims that have the closest affinity to Sharia Law are indeed potential people that read exposés and react violently. Clinton’s words smack of the language of Marxist/Leninism in which the politburo controls the minds and words of the people to force compliance to the will of the State.

 

As Americans are we to throw out the First Amendment because a large chunk of Muslims can’t handle the truth about their history or the verses of peace abrogated by the verses of violence in their Quran and affirmed in their Hadith and Sira?

 

Well I for one am not going to roll over without some contribution to legally support the Constitution of the United States of America in the face of a supremacist religion that attempts to control Free Speech.

The assault on our Constitution continues.

As we have reported extensively, Captain Paul Fields was disciplined for refusing to obey an order that violated his constitutional rights. We are certain a Muslim police officer would not have been ordered by the Tulsa police chief to attend Christian church services and Sunday school classes.

Now read the latest attack on our freedoms below, posted recently in Jihad Watch (highlights added). The OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference) continues its assault on free speech at the UN through the advance of resolution 16/18 [SlantRight Editor: Here is the text]. This resolution, cloaked in terms such as “defamation of religion,” is a thinly veiled attempt to criminalize speech that criticizes Islam.

But now, in an ominous development, according to a story published by the International Islamic News Agency, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has joined the effort to implement this effort to criminalize free speech.

 

[SlantRight Editor: The below quote from ACT is something I included in a larger quote above.]

Secretary of State Clinton says State Department will coordinate with OIC on legal ways to implement UN’s resolution criminalizing “defamation of religion”

 

Jihad Watch

 

Moving rapidly to criminalize telling the truth about how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to encourage violence and supremacism. Free Speech Death Watch Alert, and an update on this story: “OIC/Islamophobia: OIC Observatory warned since 2009 against the growth of the extreme right in Europe, Washington plans to host a meeting on resolution opposing defamation of religions,” from the International Islamic News Agency, August 1 (thanks to all who sent this in):

 

JEDDAH, Ramadan 1/Aug 1 (IINA)-During the next few months, Washington plans to host a coordination meeting to discuss with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) how to implement resolution no. 16/18 on combating defamation of religions, and how to prevent stereotypes depicting religions and their followers; as well as disseminating religious tolerance, which has been endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council last March, in agreement with Western countries. The resolution was adopted after lengthy discussions held between the OIC and countries in which the phenomenon of Islamophobia is in the rise.

The U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had announced the intention of the U.S. State Department to organize a coordination meeting during her participation in the meeting which she co-chaired with the OIC Secretary General, Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu in Istanbul on 15 July 2011. The meeting issued a joint statement emphasizing the dire need for the implementation of resolution 16/18.

According to informed sources in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the two sides, in addition to other European parties, will hold a number of specialized meetings of experts in law and religion in order to finalize the legal aspect on how to better implement the UN resolution.

The sources said that the upcoming meetings aim at developing a legal basis for the UN Human Rights Council’s resolution which help in enacting domestic laws for the countries involved in the issue, as well as formulating international laws preventing inciting hatred resulting from the continued defamation of religions.

On the other hand, the OIC Secretary General, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, stressed that the crime committed recently in Norway was a result of the rise of the extreme right in Europe and its easy mobility in political circles. He said that the OIC had warned several times against of what might be called institutionalization of the phenomenon of Islamophobia through the involvement of the European extreme right in government institutions and political action….
