Dr. Wafa Sultan has been forced to go into hiding with her family following a fatwa (religious edict) from an Islamic scholar, according to Omedia. Sultan faces the fatwa following a recent debate on Al-Jazeera in which she challenged Egyptian Islamist Talat Rheim over Dutch cartoons of Mohammed, who Muslims revere as a prophet. Sultan argued that Denmark had the right to print the cartoons. (BigPicWeblog.com – 2008)
Apparently, due to pressure from Muslim groups, the Princeton group, Tigers for Israel, withdrew their invitation at the last minute claiming that they were not aware of Darwish’s views on Islam.
It [i.e. CAIR-Houston] is a sub-chapter of CAIR-Texas, which was founded by Ghassan Elashi. He was later convicted for illegal transactions to Syria and Libya. He and two bothers (sic) were also convicted of financing Hamas.Elashi’s company, InfoCom Corp, gave about $270,000 to senior Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzouk through his wife up until 2001 when the Holy Land Foundation was shut down. Marzouk’s wife also made a $250,000 investment in Elashi’s company.…
A teacher at Foster High School in Richmond, Texas, is accused of handing out an unapproved, eight-page handout on “radical Islam” to students. The decision has resulted in backlash from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, parents and the school district. The handout, titled, ”Islam/Radical Islam (Did You Know),” claims that “38 percent of Muslims believe people that leave the faith should be executed” and states that Islam doesn’t “tolerate” homosexuality, divorce and other behavior.
Terms like “Sharia law” and “Jihad” are defined in the handout, which claims there are “an estimated 190-300 million ‘radical Islam’ followers.” The teacher reportedly did not provide sourcing.
The eight-page handout also includes a section on “what to do” if taken hostage by radical Islamist.
One of the students in the class was reportedly Muslim and told her parents, who then contacted CAIR. The group then complained directly to officials at Foster High School.
In a statement to KHOU-TV, a spokesman for the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District said the district is “disappointed to learn one teacher made independent changes to a lesson plan, resulting in information being given that didn’t follow subject matter, or state and local curriculum plans.”
“Arbitrary curriculum decisions, which are clearly outside of the guidelines, won’t be tolerated,” the spokesman added.
The teacher will face “appropriate disciplinary measures,” but it wasn’t clear what that would be.
Paul Sutliff highlights the idiocy of our government’s denial of enemy of Jihadis.
The Dangers of Ignorance in a Civilization Jihadi World
By Paul Sutliff
March 16, 2015 10:08 AM
When a group of people have organized and stated their purpose is to commit acts of aggression against your government it is time to pay attention and recognize a self-declared enemy as simply that, an enemy.
When you recognize you have an enemy, it is important to analyze everything about them. Why? Because an enemy must have a weakness! In order to survive and be prepared for whatever an enemy may do against you, you need this information.
Sun Tzu, a Chinese General of great wisdom wrote, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
What does knowing your enemy mean? If they have a religious belief, it means learning everything about that belief structure. If they have committed acts of aggression previously it would prove beneficial to study them to learn how they may attack and how you can counter that attack. Does the enemy wear something to identify themselves? Does the enemy follow certain rules and laws? Where is there headquarters? Who is their leader? These are all drastically important questions to answer when you start to learn about your enemy.
We were attacked on 9/11/2001. We learned the coordinated attack was committed by Al Qaeda. What did we know about Al Qaeda by this point? We knew they were Islamic terrorists because previous to this they had attacked the USS Cole on October 12, 2000, and had bombed our embassies in Tanzanian and Kenya. Did we know who their leader was? Yes, President Clinton stated he was given a chance to take out Osama Bin-Laden just hours before the towers came down (Good, 2014)
We should be analyzing history to understand fully anything and everything about our enemies. A recent article by Muhlenberg entitled Appeasement Kills. Has a clear message on this topic that needs to be heard,
History was meant to be the vehicle by which we learn some hard lessons. But regrettably we mostly ignore the lessons of history, and therefore keep repeating the same old mistakes. And one of the great lessons of history is the folly of seeking to appease our enemies.
When groups have clearly declared their intentions to kill you, you do not seek to just get along with them, or compromise with them – you seek to steadfastly resist them, or else. The story of the Second World War is a classic example of this. (Muehlenberg, 2014)
You may be asking how appeasement fits here. The answer is simple. If we do not recognize a self-declared enemy, they could make demands or requests under the pretense of being a friend for the purpose of manipulation. A self-declared enemy, one who in secret or openly proclaims a mission to destroy you. We have such an enemy and the government is aware of it. – But, the US government has not recognized them as an enemy!
Is this dangerous for America? Read the one paragraph of the Explanatory Memorandum of the North American Muslim Brotherhood found below and decide for yourself.
4- Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.
Our current president in the United States has issued a statement on White House.gov that states that the “Muslim Brotherhood is a non-violent group.” This is so erroneous that I devoted an entire chapter to it in my book, Civilization Jihad and the Myth of Moderate Islam.
When was the last time you heard about the CIA, FBI and various other intelligence groups studying Islam to learn more about their belief structures concerning Jihad? Have you seen any reports of a historical analysis of Islamic governments and there methods of attack?
Why not? Because, if they did report on the various methods of attack they would be telling us about al-hijrah, migration or immigration for the purpose of jihad. This doctrine of migration for the purpose of jihad is as old as Islam itself. The very start date of the Islamic calendar begins when Mohammad and his followers left Mecca for Medina. Without this move Islam would not have grown. Simple analysis of this Islamic concept would place large concerns regarding an increase in Islamic migration to this country, to any country! Sam Solomon and E. Al Maqdasi have written an incredible book on this concept, which the government should read: Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, Accepting Freedom or Imposing Islam?
So what about the Islamic State (IS) or ISIL as Obama insists we call them. He has recruited numerous people to make the claim that they are not Islamic. But why? Several Islamic scholars have backed IS, one only need look at MEMRI.org/MEMRItv.org for the evidence. Is it not dangerous to not know your enemy so much that you insist he does not believe what he openly professes? What purpose does that serve? Look where else this same message is being employed and the answer is there………its sole purpose is a failed attempt to stop Muslims from giving financial assistance to IS.
So what has continual professed ignorance of Islamic terrorism brought us?
· The inability to understand an increase in Islamic migration into Western civilization as coordinated with a Jihad intent.
· Public lies by three presidents stating, “Islam is a peaceful religion.” Historically, this is erroneous.
· Public schools that now preferentially teach more Islam to students than other religions in some states.
· Social Studies textbooks that prefer Islam to other religions (http://www.meforum.org/559/islam-and-the-textbooks)
· Removal of Subject Matter Experts who consider the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist entity from training government employees
· Removal of any and all references to “Islamic terrorism” and “jihad” from all federal training manuals on terrorism.
· Associated Press insisting that Islamic terrorism not be coupled. AP sets the media standards.
· Highly placed members of the Muslim Brotherhood in all levels and branches of the federal government (http://patdollard.com/2015/02/4-star-admiral-under-obama-muslim-brotherhood-have-infiltrated-all-of-the-national-security-agencies-of-the-united-states )

I am writer and a teacher. You can find my books on Amazon portraying the truth about Civilization Jihad!
The Ottoman Empire has been expanding by method of jihad (in other words, military conquest).
This is the extent of the empire at the beginning of the battle:
Meanwhile, Christendom was divided by the Protestant Reformation
And dead is all the innocence of anger and surprise,
And Christian killeth Christian in a narrow dusty room,And Christian dreadeth Christ that hath a newer face of doom.”
On the Christian side we have a strong leader in Don John of Austria, a handsome 24 year-old son of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor. At his command were 206 galleys, 40,000 oarsmen and sailors, 28,00 soldiers and knights, the thousands of rosaries said by faithful Christians as requested by Pope Pius V, the ministries of the religious and priests who accompanied the fleet, and the entreaties of the hosts of saints and angels in Heaven.
Spies warned Ali Pasha of the Christian advance thus he had time to set up his fleet in a battle line. This fleet was more experienced and stronger than the Christian one. The naval battle began. The galleys fired cannon balls at each other.
The turning of the tide of the Ottoman advance is due to the prayers of the millions of Catholics in Christendom. October 7th, the day the battle took place, is now the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, and the month of October is the month of the Rosary.
Are we not facing similar battles today, if not even greater ones? Christians are being massacred and exiled from their homes where they have dwelt for nearly 2,000 years in Iraq and Syria by Islamic groups such as ISIS (or Islamic State). Christians in other Islamic countries continue to face anti-Christian laws that prevent them from freely practicing their religion on pain of imprisonment or death. Unlike in the 16th century when Lepanto was fought, these atrocities are met with apathy by the modern Western culture, which is experiencing its own anti-Christian secularization which thinks Christians cannot possibly be persecuted. The overt culture of death advanced by the Islamic State has just as strong a hold in the hearts of Westerners who accept abortion, assisted suicide, euthanasia and other life-denying practices such as contraception that continues to cause populations of developed countries to plummet to the point where future generations will collapse under the weight of the much larger older generations. Christianity itself continues to suffer from splintering and a lack of unity of believers. The odds seem to be overwhelmingly against the Church.
But we are the Church Militant. We are united as members of the Body of Christ. We are the Catholic Church. Just as 500 years ago Christians united in prayer to defeat the Ottomans, we can unite in prayer now to combat the spiritual and physical evils in our world today.

Brigitte Gabriel writes about Islam being a common dominator among Islamic terrorist groups AND that our American government (under the management of the Obama Administration) is failing to educate the American public about the radicalness inherent in Islam’s Sharia Law.
Sharia: The Unifying Ideology Among Modern Terror Groups
By Brigitte Gabriel

Boko Haram and the Islamic State. Lashkar Taibi. Al-Shabab.
We hear these names all the time used synonymously with terrorism. Commentators and political pundits try to draw them into distinct boxes by geography or by their ethnicity.
But in actuality there is a deep connection among all these groups and their barbaric practices — an ideology that is at the very heart of the danger facing Western civilization, and that we are working every day to stop.
We’ve all known about the horrors of ISIS — an English acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. In recent months the group has grown beyond the last two letters of its title. The Islamic State is now active in Libya and is expanding its influence rapidly.
In India, Lashkar Taibi is actively working to bring about the fall of the Indian Republic, destroy Hinduism and Judaism, and see the disputed areas of Kashmir and Jammu made part of Pakistan, which would then itself become part of a larger pan-Islamic state.
In the Horn of Africa, Al-Shabab continues to fight to gain a foothold for sharia in the power vacuum that has existed since the early 1990s. And in Nigeria, Boko Haram kidnaps schoolgirls, murders Christians and Jews, and grinds those under its rule into ever-deeper misery and oppression.
The ideology that bonds all these groups together is a strict adherence to sharia law — the all-encompassing legal code of Islam, as practiced during the early days of the original empire that grew from Mohammad’s conquest of the Arabian Peninsula.
Most if not all of these groups talk about the desire to establish sharia rule in their lands. Much of the horror we see on the evening news from the Islamic State comes from their dedication to apply their 7th century views on everything from slavery to women’s rights to every aspect of life.
People unfortunate enough to find themselves under sharia rule find themselves in a place with little to no freedoms at all. Virtually every aspect of their lives is dictated by the omnipresent religious rules. Women are held as little more than property. They can be beaten and in many cases killed with impunity.
Girls have no chance at an education. Indeed, Boko Haram’s very name means “Western education is forbidden.”
In the lands of sharia, those who dare to profess a faith other than Islam are, under the best of circumstances, treated as second-class citizens, and more often than not rounded up for persecution or murder.
Just last year in Mosul, Islamic State fighters went house-to-house, finding Christians and marking their houses with an Arabic character — an abbreviation for “nasrani,” a pejorative term rooted in the word Nazarene. The choice given to those non-Muslims was simple: convert, pay a fine, or face “death by the sword.”
And as in so many other countries ruled by jihadis, the only thing more prevalent than efforts to kill and displace Jews is the perpetual stream of threats against Israel.
What our national security leaders have at best failed to teach the public — or at worst failed to realize themselves — is that these groups are not composed of lunatics, or any group of “lone wolves” that have congregated together in common madness.
These horrors are not the actions of a few malcontents in need of jobs or social programs. Graeme Wood put it very well in his story in this month’s Atlantic:
“The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers, drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.”
Rather than the irrational acts of madmen, the beheadings, kidnappings, and terrorist attacks around the world are the end result of a long-developed reading of Islam and what it requires of its followers.
Under their ideology, the only permissible form of government is that of a theocracy, specifically a revived caliphate, ruled by one man who will follow the will of Allah to rule the entire world.
It is this ideology – that sharia is the only acceptable law, and those who will not accept its rule must be destroyed – that we fight against. Jihadis know no color, they know no national borders, and they cannot be placed into neat boxes.
They only know that those who refuse to accept the rule of their caliph must die.
This is what we’re fighting against. A handful of people can change the world, for good or ill. It’s up to each of us to sound the alarm and be agents for change, to defend the country that we love against this great threat.

Dajjal made a passionate comment to the post “Europe: Nordic Supremacism vs. Counterjihadism”. Dajjal comments most frequently on my NCCR blog. The spam protection on NCCR is oft times hyper-sensitive which is something I do appreciate. Unfortunately the WordPress spam software for NCCR marks some of Dajjal’s comments with an approval stamp. It doesn’t do that to all of Dajjal’s comments. Well, Dajjal’s comment to “Europe: Nordic Supremacism vs. Counterjihadism” was one of those comments so marked.
If I had to guess the reason I suspect it is because Dajjal will back his thoughts with authoritative links. When those links are numerous evidently the software raises a red flag. Also I suspect the software raises a red flag in the face of profanity. When Dajjal becomes impassioned on a point he does have a tendency toward profanity.
Dajjal made his comment on March 2, 2015. I discovered it needed approval on March 9. Sorry about that Dajjal.
Now my post on Nordic Supremacism vs. Counterjihadism was in regard to an open letter by the Nordic Supremacist Norwegian butcher Anders Breivik that murdered 76 people mostly at a Norwegian political party youth camp located on Utoya Island about 25 miles from Oslo. Breivik’s demented thinking was to kill white Norwegians and blame Muslims with the hope of causing like-minded racists to rise up to topple European governments and replace them with a Nordic Supremacist government that deports Muslims back to Muslim dominated lands.
My first paragraph after offering a quote from Breivik sums up the post “Europe: Nordic Supremacism vs. Counterjihadism”:
The above translated to English quote defines the real difference between Europe’s Neo-Nazi/Fascist movements and the nationalistic Right Wing Counterjihadist movements. The first is nationalistic racism politically and the second is nationalistic cultural preservation that is anti-Islamic (but not maliciously violent racist) and not antisemitic.
To get a more concrete idea what set off Dajjal perhaps read the entire post, but in lieu of that I think the summation paragraph could be enough. I am going edit Dajjal’s more colorful language with asterisks. Clearly Dajjal aligns himself with the Counterjihadists.
Expose Islam and Racists by Shining Bright Sunlight
[Title by Editor]
Original date: March 2, 2015 at 5:04 PM
There is one proper way to deal with s**t: expose it to the bright sunlight, let the birds pick out the worms and till it under so that it will nourish crops without being seen or smelled again.
I view supremacism as s**t. Nordic, N*gg*r, Arab, Asian; any and every kind & combination. Flush it or plow it under, don’t eat it.
I view authoritarian government: top down, might makes right fascism as another form of solid excrement. I object equally to national & international Socialism, Communism, cronyism and corruption whether imposed by individuals, cliques, minorities or majorities.
I take a firm stand on the solid foundation of the Declaration of Independence & Constitution. That government is best which governs least.
I do not give a damn about skin pigment, hair or facial features. It’s what’s on the inside that counts.
It’s the belief that they [Muslims] have a divine mission to conquer me ‘cuz I do not kiss their idol’s ass that I strenuously object to. That includes imperialism, conquest, occupation, exploitation, enslavement, murder, rape, plunder & extortion.
The proponents of that evil philosophy are called Muslims. Their ideology is called Islam. Their actions are atrocious and entirely unacceptable. Their goals, objectives and aspirations are intolerable regardless of the means used to realize them.
Supremacism & imperialism cannot be accepted; neither from Breivik nor Qaradawi. I do not accept it from the Democrat Party, Republican Establishment, SPLC, United Nations, Ecclesiastic authorities, academics or editors. They can all go to Hell.
My stand is on the rights of free men and their violation by authoritarian regimes including Islam. At present, Islam is the worst of them, and I concentrate on exposing it, turning the clods and separating the turds so that they can be clearly seen, smelled and identified.
Whomever labels me ‘racist’, ‘extremist’, ‘fascist’ or ‘Nazi’ thereby exposes himself as a slanderous liar, unable to contest verifiable facts and logical opinions clearly stated.
Let those in need of facts choose one of three books to read, checking their Qur’an & hadith citations with these search engines:

This is what Islam Allows as Faith
[Arbitrary Editor’s title]
By emma jones
2/23/15 11:50 AM
Islam is the only religion with a holy book that allows:
–Murdering those who won’t convert
–Having sex with 1 year old children
–Allowing people to lie if it furthers Islam
–Having sex with a dead body (Moe ham head did this with his dead aunt)
–Taking the lives and property of anyone who disagrees with Islam
–Cutting off limbs of people for crimes
–Beheading, burning people alive, rape
–Having sex with animals as long as you kill them and don’t eat them
–Predicts a paradise in the after-life with 72 virgins for sex, young boys for sex, and rivers of wine …… which would know as a Roman orgy in the real world
ISLAM cannot agree with any other religion. If a muslim leaves islam he must be killed. So shut up if you haven’t read the Hadith, Koran, etc. Are you talking out of your ass?
I’m probably not as much an erudite writer as I am one who writes within the scope of a sense frustration.

BO’s Blinding Islamophilia
The REAL National Security Threat
By Mark Alexander
Feb. 11, 2015
“There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.” –George Washington (1793)
Islamophile: One who is so enchanted by Islam as to be under the influence of its tenets.
In 2009, I noted that Barack Hussein Obama’s remarkably brief White House bio began with this fallacious assertion: “His story is the American story – values from the heartland, a middle-class upbringing in a strong family…” And you can make up the rest.
Amazingly, his [BIG Lie] (http://patriotpost.us/alexander/22209] bio page has not been altered since then.
So, in an effort to better understand who Obama really is, and where his religious alliances fall, let’s briefly review.
Barack was conceived to unwed parents, Ann Dunham and his Kenyan father, BHO senior, both atheists. They were later married and then divorced. When Obama was four, his mother remarried, this time to an Indonesian Muslim, Lolo Soetoro. In his 1995 memoir “Dreams from My Father,” Obama wrote that Soetoro subscribed to “a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths.”
At the age of 10, Obama returned to Hawaii to live with his grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, who might best be described as agnostic. There, he would fall under the spell of an avowed Marxist, Frank Marshall Davis.
As a young adult and budding “community organizer,” Obama was taken under wing by a radical black supremacist pastor, Jeremiah Wright, who married Barack and his wife, Michelle, baptized their children and stewarded BO’s “faith” for 20 years. For those two decades, Obama also developed close associations with many other leftist radicals, including Michael Pfleger, William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Khalid al-Mansour, Rashid Khalidi, Bob Creamer, Edward Said, Roberto Unger and others.
That is the real Barack Obama bio, and those are his “values from the heartland.” Further, while he self-identifies as “Christian” rather than Muslim, that claim may be as deceptive as his bio.
With that in mind, in this seventh year of Obama’s seemingly limitless foreign and domestic policy failures, despite the ominous and impending threats from resurgent al-Qa’ida terrorist networks, the Islamic State, and clear evidence that Islamist Jihadis are targeting the USA, Obama never mentioned al-Qa’ida or Islam in his 2015 SOTU address three weeks ago.
Nor did Obama mention Islam when referencing the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris in early January, except to insist again that Islam is the “Religion of Peace.”
British journalist Douglas Kear Murray, an expert on Islam, asserts that many Muslims today subscribe to “a creed of Islamic fascism – a malignant fundamentalism, woken from the dark ages to assault us here and now.” He notes, “The claim that Islam is a religion of peace is a nicety invented by Western politicians so as either not to offend their Muslim populations or simply lie to themselves that everything might yet turn out fine. In fact, since its beginning Islam has been pretty violent.”
More recently, Obama dismissed the subsequent slaughter of Jews in Paris as an act committed by “a bunch of violent vicious zealots who … randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli.” Obama’s spokesman Josh Earnest demonstrated a heroic display of verbal contortionism in endeavoring to explain Obama’s assertion that the attack was random. Those “violent vicious zealots” were Islamists, and there was nothing “random” about terrorists targeting a kosher Jewish deli.
Last week, Obama used a Christian forum, the National Prayer Breakfast, to sanctimoniously denigrate Christians. The theme for this year’s event was “Remembering the Armenian Genocide of 1915,” when more than a million Christians were murdered by Muslims. That notwithstanding, he claimed Christians and Muslims are equal partners in murder and mayhem:
“Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place – remember that the Crusades and the Inquisition committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” He added, “Slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
Really? For the record, Obama has ordered drone strikes against Islamic targets that have killed more Muslims in six years than were killed during three centuries of the Spanish Inquisition. (Look it up!) And the Crusades were, arguably, undertaken in the name of “the church,” not Jesus Christ. As Islamic scholar and historian Bernard Lewis notes,
“The Crusades could more accurately be described as a limited, belated and, in the last analysis, ineffectual response to the jihad – a failed attempt to recover by a Christian holy war what had been lost to a Muslim holy war.”
Clearly, there is nothing in the Gospel of Jesus Christ that advocates or could even be loosely construed to advocate violence against non-Christians. However, there is plenty in the Quran and the Hadith (the teachings of Muhammad) advocating death to infidels. As Franklin Graham reminds us,
“Jesus taught peace, love and forgiveness. He came to give his life for the sins of mankind, not to take life.”
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, the child in Indian immigrants, rebutted Obama’s assertion, saying,
“It was nice of the President to give us a history lesson at the Prayer breakfast. Today, however, the issue right in front of his nose, in the here and now, is the terrorism of Radical Islam. … The Medieval Christian threat is under control, Mr. President. Please deal with the Radical Islamic threat today.”
As to Obama’s reference to slavery, the abolitionist movement to end chattel slavery in the United States 150 years ago was led by white and black Christian men and women, as was the movement to end segregation 50 years ago. Christians of yore were at the forefront of these sweeping changes, while Muslims today are at the forefront of murderous global Jihad.
This metastasizing Islamic threat advocates for a “master race,” much as did Adolf Hitler prior to World War II. However, rather than a world dominated by Aryans, Islamists seek a worldwide caliphate of Islamists, or “Jihadistan.” And on the subject of percentages, some have suggested that because only 10 percent of Muslims are extremists we need not worry. However, in 1940 only seven percent of Germans belonged to the National Socialist German Workers Party. How did that work out?
Notably, the 2014 Global Slavery Index reports that of the more than 29 million humans held today in captive slavery – defined as “the possession and control of a person in such a way as to significantly deprive that person of his or her individual liberty, with the intent of exploiting that person through their use, management, profit, transfer or disposal” – more than 18 million are being held in Islamic countries, primarily (and ironically) in Africa.
Indeed, ISIL has institutionalized slavery in the Middle East.
In an interview this week, Obama delusionally insisted that concern about [Islamic] terrorism is simply media-driven hype:
“If it bleeds it leads, right? … It’s all about ratings.”
When asked why Obama would posit such a ludicrous assertion, my favorite psychiatrist, Charles Krauthammer, said flatly,
“Because he believes it. … If he was just being cynical as a way to dismiss this because of the failure of his policies, that would be one thing. I think he believes this. … This is what is so terrifying about the man who is commander in chief of a country, essentially a civilization, under attack.”
“For the last six years Obama has acted as if the biggest threat American security [in the Middle East] is the Israeli government.”
Curiously, at the National Prayer Breakfast, Obama asserted, “We are summoned to push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilistic ends.” Whose religion was he referencing?
Perhaps the answer is found in Obama’s many words of praise for Islam since 2009:
“I will stand with [Muslims] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. … The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. … We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world – including in my own country. … As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam. … Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. … Islam has always been part of America. … We will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities. … These [Ramadan] rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings. … America and Islam … share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings. … America is not and will never be at war with Islam. … Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace. … So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. … In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education. … Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality. … That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear. … Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
So, why does Obama refuse to mention Islam in connection with worldwide Islamic Jihad that is at our doorstep?
I believe it is because he is, first and foremost, an Islamophile, and thus he has what is almost a pathological blindness to the threat posed by Jihad.
On the other hand, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former Defense Intelligence Agency director, has been very clear in his assessment of our enemy:
“You cannot defeat an enemy you do not admit exists. … There are many sincere people in our government who frankly are paralyzed by this complexity. … [They] accept a defensive posture, reasoning that passivity is less likely to provoke our enemies. … A strong defense is the best deterrent. … The dangers to the U.S. do not arise from the arrogance of American power, but from unpreparedness or an excessive unwillingness to fight when fighting is necessary. I think there is confusion about what it is that we are facing. It’s not just what has been defined as 40,000 fighters in the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, it’s also a large [radicalized segment of Muslims] who or threatening our very way of life. … We really don’t have an effective strategy that is coherent, that actually addresses the wider problem. … I think what the American public is looking for is … moral and intellectual courage and clarity, and not a sense of passivity and confusion.”
Flynn’s assessment follows that of the Director of National Intelligence, Lt. Gen. James Clapper, who, in testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said a year ago,
“Al-Qa’ida is morphing and franchising itself … in Yemen, Somalia, in North Africa, in Syria … and what’s going on there … is very, very worrisome. … Looking back over my more than half a century in intelligence, I have not experienced a time when we’ve been beset by more crises and threats around the globe.”
Even one of the Democratic Party’s most liberal members, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, insisted,
“The presence of terrorist groups including those formerly affiliated with al-Qa’ida and others, has spread over the past year. In fact terrorism is at an all-time high worldwide.”
And this week, Congress provided the Army an end-run around Obama’s classifying Nidal Hasan’s murderous attack at Fort Hood as “workplace violence.” Instead, it is now classified as an act of terrorism and Hasan’s victims will now receive Purple Hearts.
But Obama can’t bring himself to call it what it is.
In fact, he insisted this week that climate change is a far greater threat, but noted it’s “happening [on] such a broad scale and [is] such a complex system, it’s a hard story for the media to tell on a day-to-day basis.”
Fact is, bloody Islamist attacks are also “happening on a broad scale” and on a “day-to-day basis” – and are getting closer to home every day. The murder of American relief worker Kayla Mueller, as confirmed yesterday, is yet another example of the evil we are confronting.
So, let me script this one for Obama so at his next stump speech he gets it right:
“We are at war with radical Islamic terrorists. Violent global jihad poses an immense existential threat to the civilized world, particularly since Iran is, or already has, the capacity to hand its asymmetric surrogates a nuclear weapon.”

I wish I would like to see more bloggers post about the contributions of Fjordman exposing Islam’s anti-Western nature. Dave the Sage does this on the blog The Conservative Citizen.
Meet Fjordman: Europe’s Most Infamous Anti-Islamist Writer
February 1, 2015
“The civilization of Europe, America, and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization, because of victories stretching through the centuries from the days of Miltiades and Themistocles to those of Charles Martel in the eighth century and those of John Sobieski in the seventeenth century. During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today nobody can find in them any ” social values” whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influence and the decaying native Christian churches are concerned. There are such “social values” today in Europe, America, and Australia only because during those thousand years the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do, that is, to beat back the Moslem invader. It is of course worth while for sociologists to discuss the effect of this European militarism on “social values,” but only if they first clearly realize and formulate the fact that if the European militarism had not been able to defend itself against and to overcome the militarism of Asia and Africa, there would have been no “social values” of any kind in our world today, and no sociologists to discuss them.” -Theodore Roosevelt, “Social Values and National Existence”, Papers and Proceedings of the American Sociological Society
The writer and author Peder Are Nøstvold Jensen, better known as Fjordman, is a European treasure and a near extinct rarity unfortunately. I have admired and followed him for many years.
He’s been an inspiration to me personally as a writer and essayist. In fact, his book Defeating Eurabia was the catalyst for my own book No Apologies which will be released on Amazon for the Kindle this spring.
Fjordman has paid the price for having the courage to stand up for what is right and true. It is incredible, that in today’s Europe, one can hardly dare to stand up ones culture and country without undergoing intense scrutiny, harassment, and sometimes even persecution from the authorities. Not to mention risking death at the hands of the Muslims hordes who those same authorities have allowed to overrun the borders and flood the continent in their millions.
The goal of European and Western survivalists — and that’s what we are, it is our very survival that is at stake — should not be to “fix” the ideology of Multiculturalism but to be mentally prepared for its collapse, and to develop coherent answers to what went wrong and prepare to implement the necessary remedies when the time comes. We need to seize the window of opportunity, and in order to do so, we need to define clearly what we want to achieve. What went wrong with our civilization, and how can we survive and hopefully regenerate, despite being an increasingly vulnerable minority in an often hostile world? – Fjordman
There was once a time when the countries and nations of Europe fought ferociously and bravely against the various barbarian waves that sought to conquer it. Those days are apparently only mere memories now in the minds of those who read dusty history books and no longer part of the mentality of a civilization that is under unending racial, cultural, and religious assault. One would think that the literal descendants of the vast hordes of fierce warriors who vigorously attacked and eventually helped destroy the great and once powerful Roman Empire would learn from what occurred in their own past, on their own continent, by their own forefathers.
It is heartbreaking to watch the slow and steady suicide of a once proud and powerful race, people, continent, and civilization. They have become utterly, and possibly fatally, infected with the deadly diseases of progressivism; multiculturalism, atheism, socialism, tolerance, diversity, and political correctness. Europe has been stubborn in clinging to these discredited ‘isms’ that undermine the very foundations of the very things that once made them great and powerful Peoples and Empires.
The two great European civil wars of the last century seems to have so weakened and disillusioned the cradle of Western Civilization that the infection of progressivism was able to get a stranglehold on its victim. It hasn’t yet let go yet as it has swept from country to country across the continent with barely a whimper of dissent from the population.
Fjordman is an admirable exception to that rule and has for many years been a forceful voice for the preservation of European civilization and against the Islamization of Europe. After the 2011 Norway attacks by Anders Behring Breivik (see Is Anders Behring Breivik the Nordic Che Guevara?) Peder was ‘outed’ as Fjordman (a dangerous thing in Europe), lost his job, came under intense scrutiny from the government, and had his personal computer confiscated by the police. He is currently in exile from his native Norway and has paid the price for speaking out for the truth.
If you are not acquainted with the writings of Fjordman and his essays then I humbly suggest you take the time to explore his passionate and intellectual defense of Europe, common sense, and the preservation of Western Civilization. An up to date collection of his writings, the Fjordman Files, can be viewed here.
A little bit about my future plans. At the time of writing, I am completing the manuscript for a book that will be partly about the Breivik case. I have chosen to call it Witness to Madness. This will probably be self-published and should be in circulation at Amazon.com and other venues … most likely as both an ebook and as a printed paper book. At the time of writing I have surpassed 51,000 words that have already been edited and largely proofread. I am editing an analysis of Breivik’s so-called manifesto that will not be published in advance online, but will be exclusive to the book. When this is added within a few days, the word count for already edited material will be about 70,000 words.
Strictly speaking, this would be long enough to publish a full-length book if I so choose. However, I wish to include a bit more material before I publish, partly about how I experienced the Breivik case — including my meeting with Norwegian police — partly about Breivik’s psyche and the trial, and finally a section about the mass media and dishonest journalism. I have the option to include even more material than this, for instance about Islamization and Western appeasement.
I will wrap up the book at some point this fall and have already hired a proofreader.
Thereafter I will complete the manuscript for my book The Curious Civilization, which was already 90% finished at the time of Anders Behring Breivik’s massacre…. I hope to find a regular publisher for this title from the start, so it won’t be in circulation for some time yet.
After that, I will complete a book about Islam, and why I don’t think it can be reformed.
I have plans for several more books, too, possibly one about the self-destruction of Sweden and its model of the welfare state; maybe one about the EU, or about what went wrong with Western civilization.
In the long run I have serious plans for a huge brick of a book of a thousand-plus pages about European accomplishments over the past 40,000 years, from beer to Beethoven. This ambitious project is going to take me several more years to complete, however. It won’t be in circulation any time soon. –Fjordman

Bill Lively cross posted a book review to “Christ, Muhammad, and I” as a comment to a post by Morgan Brittany. Ms. Brittany’s post is about her displeasure of President Barack Hussein Obama’s do-nothing solution to Islamic terrorism with a big finger point to ISIS.

President Mu’ammar al Qadhafi of Libya gave his permission to edit his book in English…Could this be another reason he was marked for Death by the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton..?
Book Review: Christ, Muhammad, and I
Book author: Mohammad Al Ghazoli
Mohammad Al Ghazoli was raised a Muslim. But the more he read the ancient literature of Islam, the more convinced he became that Allah could not be the True God. And the more he studied the life of Muhammad, the more obvious it became that Muhammad was not God’s prophet. Then one day, someone placed a Bible in his hands and said, “Read.” Soon Ghazoli had found the True God, and forgiveness through His Son.
This book isn’t just Ghazoli’s testimony. It is much more than that. It contains the facts from the literature of Islam that shows why Allah can’t possibly be the True God. It gives proof from Islam itself that whenever Muhammad wanted more wives, or riches, or when he had a problem, Gabriel was always standing by, ready to give another “verse” to exempt Muhammad from the law and morality. How convenient!
Many of the stories in the book will be unfamiliar to the Western reader, but very familiar to Muslims. It is this “inside view” of things that makes the book so powerful as a witnessing tool for Muslims. Over and over again, Ghazoli asks, “Is this the behavior of a prophet who was sent by God? What kind of god would send a prophet like that?”
The arguments contained in this book will give you powerful evidence you can show to Muslims you may try to witness to. Because it is written by a respected Arab writer, who was an advisor to the Arab league and even to Libyan ruler Qhadaffi [one of many versions of this name], you can give the book to a Muslim and tell him, “Read.”
• The 220 contradictions in the Qur’an.
• Verses which reverse and replace prior verses. Did Allah make a mistake?
• The verses used to justify terrorism.
• Even the Qur’an admits Jesus was crucified! Then it denies it.
• Muhammad’s 23 marriages, including one to a little girl.
A note from the editor:
This book was so exciting! It held me speechless as I read. It was a storehouse of information! But more importantly, at every turn I saw Muhammad, “Gabriel” and Allah compared to our loving Saviour, Jesus Christ. You’ve got to experience this for yourselves!
That is why I couldn’t wait to publish this book. Mohammad Al Ghazoli, former advisor to President Mu’ammar al-Qadhafi of Libya, gave permission to edit his book in understandable English… to help us Westerners understand the – who, what, when and where – of Islam’s history, as well as why it is so important to us today….
