Free Speech Works for Western Muslims but NOT Westerners


Cleric Muzzles Lady Liberty

In America Nazis can march in a Jewish neighborhood in Chicago even if the residents in that neighborhood are survivors of the Holocaust.

In America Muslims can say all manner of vile things about Jews or the overthrow of the American government to establish a Sharia State.

Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)

… the book Don’t Be Sad, a required reading text for both members and MGAs during the July-September quarter. “But if it [the soul] fights for the sake of Allah, Allah will transform fear and anxiety into happiness, strength, and vigor.”

The same text, published in 2005 by the International Islamic Publishing House in Saudi Arabia, promotes hatred of the Jews, calling them the greediest of people.

ICNA’s 2010 Member’s Hand Book emphasized ideas of a far-fetched Islamist take-over of American society, something also found in the group’s Charter and By-Laws.

Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)

Hooper has candidly stated that while he does not endorse the violent tactics of Islamic radicals, he does share their desire to impose Islam on all of America. “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune in a 1993 interview. “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”

Ten years later, in 2003, Hooper stated that if Muslims were ever to become a numerical majority in the U.S., they would likely seek to replace the Constitution with Islamic law (Sharia), which they view as divinely inspired and thus superior to all other legal systems.

 

CAIR Co-Founder Niwad Awad

Awad then began addressing his views toward Jewish control in the US:

“So we in the activist community, yourselves, we always call on the President, on the White House to do things. But there’s nothing being done. Why? Because the second power lies with the Congress. Members of Congress compete with each other, whether Democrats or Republicans, to please the Israel lobby, to please Israel. Some of members of Congress are willing to put the interests of Israel ahead of the United States’ interests.”

 

“Why? Because we have to understand what drives members of Congress. Is it values, principles or votes and money and pressure? The pro-Israel lobby has mastered deception, pressure tactics and exploiting the system of giving money to candidates and putting pressure and threatening some candidates with either scandals or what have you. And they managed over many years to have this huge influence on not only members of Congress but those who want to be elected officials in the United States.”

Attributing masters of deception to the “pro-Israel lobby” by Awad is a thinly disguised euphemism for Jews. Awad’s claim that pro-Israel members of Congress traitorously put Israeli interests ahead of US interests is a blatant age old anti-Semitic variation taken from the notorious anti-Semitic Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Awad’s allegations are the same only slightly cryptic posturing about Jews used by the KKK and other racist white supremacist organizations.

In his speech, Awad demonstrated his true background as an anti-Semitic, Israel-hating provocateur who uses his position in CAIR to further a radical Islamist agenda, and that is precisely the reason CAIR exists.

Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)

While many panels featured criticism of U.S. policy and law enforcement, one stood out for its hate-filled rhetoric, and ISNA officials should have seen it coming a mile away. During a “meet the authors” session, Imam Warith Deen Umar, former head of the New York state prison chaplain program managed to:

* Argue that key Obama aides are “Israeli,” proving Jews “have control of the world.”

 

* Malign the motives of Jews active in the Civil Rights movement.

 

* Portray the Holocaust as punishment of Jews for being “serially disobedient to Allah.”

 

* Insinuate that Hurricane Katrina was a result of tolerance for homosexuality.

[…]

ISNA described the author’s panel as “an interactive session which provides a wonderful platform to learn, share ideas, and provide literary contributions to society.” Remarkably, ISNA included Umar in that platform despite a very public record of anti-Semitism, advocacy for jihad, and praise for the 9/11 hijackers.

Muslim American Society(MAS)

MAS has furthermore extended invitations to speakers whose anti-Israel remarks delve into anti-Semitic prevarications.  In June 2006, MAS co-sponsored a town hall meeting in La Mirada, CA where former Ambassador Edward Peck delivered a keynote address in which he reportedly said, “There is a linkage between what is happening in Iraq and terrorism. It is linked to our support of Israel.” Peck was reported as having “reminded his audience that the Nazis saw the rest of the world as untermensch – subhuman and not worthy of respect. He said that is how Israelis treat their opponents – The media, he explained, like Congress, is controlled by Jews.”

MAS has sponsored anti-Israel rallies in the U.S. that featured virulently anti-Jewish rhetoric and expressions of support for terrorist groups, including Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed militant movement that calls for the destruction of Israel. In December 2008, MAS organized a “National Day of Action” in more than 30 locations around the U.S. in response to Israel’s military action in Gaza. Many of the demonstrations were marked by offensive Holocaust imagery likening Jews and Israelis to Nazis, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic rhetoric.

The Muslim American Society (MAS) has historically disseminated and promoted extremist literature. At its 8th annual convention held in December 2009 in Chicago, MAS’ Youth organization sold educational materials including books and CDs by radical anti-Semitic sheikhs such as Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a leading Muslim Brotherhood ideologue based in Qatar who is known for his support of terrorist groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah; and Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. born Muslim cleric based in Yemen who has encouraged American Muslims to attack non-Muslims and Western targets.

MAS also made available on its Web site until March 2006 issues of American Muslims, a magazine edited by Editor-in-Chief Souheil Ghannouchi, who was also an Executive Director of MAS. The publication featured anti-Semitic articles and religious edicts justifying suicide operations.

The cover story in the January 2004 issue of American Muslims featured an article arguing that “the bible is a distorted document” and that “Zionism began with the Old Testament. Unknown authors willingly distorted the word of God to suit their own self-interest.” The article stated that, “The Middle East conflict today still harkens back to Jews’ erroneous claim that God gave the ‘Promised Land’ exclusively to Jews.”

Muslim Public Affairs Council(MPAC)

While speaking to a young Jewish journalist from our local Jewish paper, he mentioned that his office staff will soon be meeting with the leadership of MPAC, (Muslim Public Affairs Council) a Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Islamic front group. He wondered what questions should be asked of them.   That evening I could barely sleep.   My adrenalin was racing as I thought of the numerous questions that should be posed by not only Jewish American leadership, but by our leaders in the halls of government.  In today’s atmosphere of inter-faith kumbayas, would we not be better served if today’s leaders had the courage to ask the tough questions?

Question 1: Why do Muslims follow an Anti-Semitic doctrine that refers to Jews as the “sons of pigs and apes” and why should we Jews respect a doctrine that calls for our demise?  In the Hadith Muhammad said: ‘The time [of judgment] will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: Oh, Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him!” (Bukhari 4.52.176 & 177, and 4.56.791.)

Muslim Student Association(MSA)

… Although the MSA presents itself to others as a benign social organization with no other purpose than promoting the legitimate interests of students from the Mid East and elsewhere in Dar Al-Islam, in actual fact the group seeks to further militant anti-Semitic Islam, especially its Wahhabi form.

This means, among other things, emphasis on particular verses in the Qur’an, most notably Surah 5:64-65. To be certain, there are many other verses which have special significance for the MSA, but this is central to the discussion and problems elsewhere are epitomized by this passage. By the way, 5:64-65 may or may not be in the exact same place in a translation which you may make use of. Unlike the Bible, where all verses in all versions are in the identical same place in the text, Qur’an verses may occur in one place in one translation and somewhere else in other versions. This understood, here is what Surah 5:64-65 says, in words addressed to the Jews: “do not disavow us… They whom God has cursed [the Jews], and with whom he has been angry, some of them he changed into apes and pigs.”

We have been lucky, so far, at the University of Oregon. To the best of my knowledge the school has not hosted MSA sponsored speakers like those just cited, all of them virulent anti-Semites–and supporters of terrorist groups as part of the bargain. But it is clear beyond all reasonable doubt what the MSA is a hate group of the worst odor.

There are more prominent Islamic-American organizations but I think you get the picture. These organizations in America are Anti-Semitic, Jew-Hating and American Constitution-Hating. And yet if a non-Muslim secularist, Jew or Christian places their principles ahead of Islam while criticizing the darker nature of Islam these same Muslim-American organizations love to play the victim and cry racist Islamophobia is persecuting the Muslims of America.

Playing on this stance as victim these prominent Muslim American organizations have been advocating special treatment that provide rights beyond the U.S. Constitution much as the Muslims have been largely successful in Europe.

Europe is loaded with Muslim only enclaves. Not that it is illegal to enter a Muslim enclave, but expect no protection from the rule of law. Sharia Law rules in a Muslim enclave even if Shariah contradicts rule of law that everyone else must follow.

In Europe Muslim anti-Semitism and hatred for critics of Islam is so virulent that Jews and critics often fear for the lives for the use of Religious Freedom or Free Speech. It is not uncommon for a non-Muslim in Europe to be raped merely because her clothing to Muslim males is a sign post saying, “come violate in any way you wish.”

And yet if a non-Muslim European that probably has a family tree that reaches back further than the existence of Roman Empire let alone the residue of Islamic conquest that forcibly altered the European culture of peoples living in the Balkans of Eastern Europe speaks against Islam, then hate speech is accused. The European policy of prosecuting non-Muslims for exposing Islam and not prosecuting Muslims for more viral hate speech is dhimmified lunacy.

Geert Wilders of Netherlands made news for his hate-speech incitement trial via some short films he made showing the dark side of Islam. Europeans, American Leftists and even some American Conservatives berated Wilders. In America Wilders’ short films would not even have made the law enforcement blink because of the First Amendment. Wilders was acquitted just before the Norwegian psycho Breivik embarked on a massacre of Norwegians in the hope of driving Europe to form a New European Order that would expel Muslim immigrants.

Anti-Jihad essayist Fjordman was detained and questioned harshly because Breivik used his essays to formulate the grand revolutionary scheme to eject Muslim immigrants (Too bad there is no death penalty on the table for Breivik).

Then there is the Austrian Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff accused and convicted of denigrating religious beliefs. Sabaditsch-Wolff wrote about an Austrian Appellate Court upholding her conviction and you should read the entire English version post. Below is the specific reaction she felt about the last verdict:

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff 2

I will now comment very briefly on the verdict.

I must admit that I entered the courtroom with some cautious optimism. However, when I sat down to face the presiding judge, with another nameless judge on his left and right, I knew in my heart that the verdict once again had already been written, as it was from the day of my indictment.

Let’s be honest: from the very beginning we freedom-loving men and women, we who seek to defend democracy and universal human rights, never had a chance. The destruction of everything we stand up for is too far advanced.

For those of you wondering what the verdict was and its implications, here a short summary.

The initial verdict found me NOT GUILTY on the count of hate speech.

It did, however, find me guilty of “denigrating the religious teachings of a legally recognized religion” because I had said that “Mohammed had a thing for little girls”, and that his behavior can be described as “pedophilia” for want of a better word. I was sentenced to a fine of €480 (i.e. 1/3 of the maximum sentence) and two months jail if I refused to pay.

The appeals court verdict is interesting, but even more shocking. The judge explained that while it is certainly within the law to say that “Mohammed had sex with a 9-year-old”, calling this spade a spade is considered “excessive” and thus “denigrating”. Imagine that you were no longer allowed to call a murderer “heinous” because you might be convicted of having an “excessive” opinion as a result.

Here in Austria we are no longer permitted to name the crime committed by the founder of a religion, in whose name (according to Koran 33:21, Mohammed is the perfect example to be emulated by all Muslims) millions of young girls are married off and raped by their “husbands”. This is an unbearable thought for me, as the mother of a young girl. And it is an unacceptable situation, one I shall fight till the very end.

However, at this point I cannot tell you how I will continue this fight, as I have not heard from my lawyer. We have to wait for the written verdict first, after which we can decide on a strategy, for both the battle inside the courtroom as well as outside. I thus ask you to bear with me until my legal team, my family, and my confidants present the details of what I should do next. I can assure you that I will not stop, for stopping would mean surrendering to the application of sharia law here in Austria, which is something I will never, ever do.

Paraphrasing Congressman Allen West’s words: “I will remain steadfast in my opinions and loyal to my family and my beloved Austria.” (Emphasis SlantRight)

Sabaditsch-Wolff did not say “death to Muslims” or “we should go out and teach those ungrateful Muslim immigrants a lesson”. She was convicted for saying “Mohammed had a thing for little girls, and that his behavior can be described as ‘Pedophilia’ for want of a better word.” I mean she read that right of the Quran and came to the obvious conclusion AND was convicted for it!

ACT for America sent an email that asking for donations to go for Sabaditsch-Wolff’s legal fee. In America an Appellate decision can be overturned by the Supreme Court. I don’t know how that work’s in Austria, I assume the word “Appellate” means there is a Higher Court in Austria.

Bare Naked Islam Shutdown by Word Press


John R. Houk

© December 30, 2011

 

I have been going through my RSS feeds at Google Reader. I don’t know why I still have Little Green Footballs on my RSS. The big football over there has it in for bloggers that wish to expose Islam as a theopolitical religion that its very essence is antithetical to the American way of life that was initiated by our Founding Fathers as well as being an overtly racist religion.

 

The idiocy of the hatred of LGF’s Charles Johnson has called Pamela Geller a racist bigot for her part in exposing Islam. Here is a Johnson quote on Geller I found on Helian Unbound:

 

The fact is that there are plenty of good reasons to make the judgment that Pamela Geller promotes crazy hate speech, racist groups, and conspiracy theories; her main targets are Muslims, but many of these reasons have nothing to do with Islam, radical or otherwise.

 

This Helian Unbound post demonstrates the hypocrisy of Charles Johnson. The post proceeds to quote Johnson racism and incitement:

 

Congratulations, Glenn (Beck). You’ve now succeeded in being even more of a gratuitous race-baiter than Rush Limbaugh.

 

++++++++++

 

Some days it seems as if the right wing blogosphere has become possessed by the Demons of Utter Stupidity.

 

++++++++

 

In his feverish rush to smear LGF by any means possible, wingnut hateblogger Ace of Spades makes an accusation. (Amid a whole bunch of outright lies.)

 

+++++++

 

This is the kind of person who represents the right wing blogosphere: a rank hypocrite, who accuses others of the unethical acts he performs himself.

 

+++++++++

 

World Net Daily’s source for their latest insane Birther article is James Edwards — an open white supremacist who runs the vile “Political Cesspool” radio show in Tennessee: Hawaii elections clerk: Obama not born here.

 

+++++++++

 

I haven’t been paying much attention to raving Birther kook Orly Taitz’s campaign for the GOP nomination for secretary of state, but amazingly, there’s actually a chance she might win today

 

+++++++++++

 

Fox News Hitler pimp Glenn Beck has a new favorite author:

 

+++++++++++

 

Nothing new about any of this, Blair, you freaking brain-dead right wing moron. Try harder next time.

 

++++++++++

 

Today’s disgusting right wing racist is South Carolina Republican Senator Jake Knotts.

 

If Johnson ever was a Conservative has totally abandoned the Right to become a Left Wing writer of hate. As any good Leftist will do, Johnson will delete or edit any incriminating posts or comments to protect his LGF sainthood. This is one reason I sought quotes from somewhere other than LGF itself.

 

I point out this nature of Charles Johnson because it is through a rant of his against Pamela Geller that I discovered Bare Naked Islam (BNI) was shut down by the blog’s host WordPress.com. Johnson praises WordPress.com and castigates Geller for her timely and vociferous post at Atlas Shrugs leveled at WordPress.com for dropping BNI. Evidently WordPress.com believes BNI violated its terms of service; however the closure was a result of Muslim complaints supported by Hamas-Muslim Brotherhood connected Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) against BNI. As of today this is what you are directed to if you attempt to go to the BNI blog:

 

barenakedislam.wordpress.com is no longer available.

 

This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service.


For questions or concerns, contact WordPress.com Support.

 

Who knows how long even this slim piece of information is available; nonetheless be a person that clicks the “WordPress.com Support” link above to complain about this attempt to censor Free Speech merely because of the hypocrisy that some Muslims were offended by a BNI portrayal of Islam.

 

Pamela Geller is correctly angry with WordPress.com and CAIR for this kind of censorship. Geller’s defense of BNI demonstrates the hypocrisy involved in this act of shutting BNI because CAIR is a radical Islamic group of which BNI would expose as a group dedicated to bring intolerant Sharia Law as the law of the land in America.

 

Geller urges everyone that has a Word Press blog to shut down voluntarily in protest; however I am probably one of many that will ignore this voluntary action. I use my Word Press blog kind of as a place to disseminate info that leads back to my main blog SlantRight.com. If you do not have much invested in your Word Press blog, by all means take it down. If you have a lot invested in your Word Press blog OR if you have no Word Press blog I urge you to complain to WordPress.com Support!

CAIR, MB & Hamas: ALL Radical Islamists


Pamela Geller

John R. Houk

© October 19, 2011

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) intimidates a Hyatt Hotel in Texas to cancel a scheduled speaking engagement by Pamela Geller sponsored by a local Tea Party organization.

CAIR was listed as an unindicted coconspirator with the convicted Holy Land Foundation (HLF) members that were convicted for channeling Muslim donations to Hamas. Hamas is on the U.S. terrorist list and is also an affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood representing Arabs that call themselves Palestinians in the Gaza Strip (Gazastan or Hamastan). The primary goal of Hamas is the extermination of Israel and Jews. This is the same Hamas that kidnapped Gilad Shalit and has held him captive for about five years. It is the same Hamas that has extorted Israel to trade over a thousand Islamic terrorist murdering thugs from prison for the returning of Shalit to Israel (Trade occurred yesterday).

Unindicted coconspirator means that there is a connection to funneling money through HLF to Hamas AND CAIR has direct connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Be Bold Enough to See the Turpitude of Homosexuality


No gays logo

John R. Houk

© September 12, 2011

I have not spent as much time condemning homosexuality and the homosexual agenda to normalize perversion. Frankly homosexuality disgusts me so much that I have a very difficult to wade into the darkness of homosexuality. I try the Godly thing of hate the sin and love the sinner; however if you have ever visited the few blogs (the MSM is loath to touch reporting of public displays of homosexual perversions) that post pictures and videos of open perversion at city approved parades and public functions, you would understand my aversion for digging into the moral turpitude the homosexual agenda.

One website that eschews political correctness and reports on the homosexual agenda is Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH). AFTAH does such a fine job in exposing what homosexuals really do in public (not to mention behind closed doors) that a lot of web warning sites will list AFTAH as unsuitable for children. AND that is the truth!

Visit AFTAH to learn how to address your Congressman or Senator. Congressmen and Senators are inundated with pro-homosexual junk all the time followed with propaganda from Hollywood, TV and the Left natured MSM proclaiming the normalcy of homosexuality.

Biblical Christians must reverse the tide of propaganda of the pro-homosexual agenda by being bold in standing for Biblical Morality and mailing/emailing State Congresses and the Congress in Washington, DC.

WorldNetDailyis promoting a book by Dr. Michael Brown which informs his readers of the collusion of psychiatry to normalize homosexuality and about the homosexual agenda in general. Below is that promotion.

Dr. Michael Brown

On dangerous ground

The book that the publishers were afraid to touch

 

WND Promotion

Sent: 9/12/2011 8:00 AM

 

Are you one of the many people who still thinks there’s something wrong with homosexuality – but find it difficult to talk about nowadays?

Or maybe you’ve given up trying.

Well, don’t blame yourself, because you’re on the wrong side of a massive disinformation campaign. But there is hope, and it’s a new book called “A Queer Thing Happened To America.”

There are plenty of pro-family, anti-gay-agenda books out there … but this one is considered so radioactive that no publisher would touch it.

Why?

Mainly because Dr. Michael Brown tells the story of the pro-gay sea change in American culture almost entirely with reference to sources that no pro-gay activist could dispute.

He tells the story in their own words.

“A Queer Thing Happened To America” is a work of history, but it is also an almanac of sorts, extensively footnoted with the vast majority of citations being neutral or pro-gay publications.

It is the truth; it is told in a reasonable, caring manner – and therefore it is dangerous.

Much more than a compendium, “A Queer Thing Happened To America” also explains the “gay agenda” and reveals why issues related to gender have become so hard to discuss for traditional-minded Americans.

 

Dr. Brown notes: “A full recognition of ‘gay rights’ means limited recognition of the rights of others.”

Here are comments from some in the publishing industry who saw the manuscript:

“There would be a very concrete, though difficult to measure financial penalty to pay for publishing your book. . . . Practically speaking it could actually destroy the firm . . . .”

“Honestly, there is no NY publisher . . . who will touch this manuscript.”

“I’d be better off burning the money in my fireplace. . . . . The economics of publishing a book like this are bleak.”

Among the many inconvenient truths uncovered by Dr. Brown are observations on the maxim that gays are “born that way”:

The scientific argument for a biological basis for sexual orientation remains weak. The political argument that it will bolster gay pride or prevent homophobic bigotry runs counter to experience. The lesbian, gay, and bisexual community does not need to have its “deviance” tolerated because its members were born “that way” and “cannot help it.” Rather, society must recognize the validity of lesbian and gay lifestyles. We need an end to discrimination, an acceptance of all human beings, and a celebration of diversity, whatever its origins.
– Council for Genetic Research

No one is born gay. The idea is ridiculous.
– Lesbian author Camille Paglia, “Vamps and Tramps”

Dr. Brown blows the lid off the carefully scripted effort to redefine free speech as hate speech.

In today’s accepted parlance:

“Hate” means: “To hold to Judeo-Christian principles and values; to stand for biblical morality; and to take issue with homosexual practice.”

The pro-alternate lifestyle tactic is to “make the person with whom you differ into a small-minded, mean-spirited bigot. The playing field becomes unequal, and you ideological opponent becomes a monster whose ideas are unworthy of serious discussion…

“Things have shifted so dramatically – they have literally been turned upside down – that it now appears that no matter what you say and no matter how carefully and graciously you say it, if you dare to differ with the GLBT agenda, if you believe that it is immoral for a man to have sex with another man, if you do not support same-sex marruage, then you are an extremist, a bigot, a Nazi and a jihadist.”

In extensive detail, “A Queer Thing Happened To America” shows you how nearly all of the actual “hate speech” is coming from those who perpetually “push the hate button” – namely, the gay and lesbian community.

In fact, if you want to find out who is really following the rhetorical lead of the infamous Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church, read from page 70 forward.

Hint: It’s not conservatives.

Another revealing nugget:

You know how we always hear about the famous gays from history – the scientists, philosophers, artists?

What most don’t realize is how many of of these world-changers are claimed both by the gay-lesbian-transgender community – as well as by NAMBLA!

Here is an overview of topics covered in “A Queer Thing Happened To America”

  • The supposedly nonexistent “gay agenda”

  • Jewish Hitlers, Christian jihadists, and the magical effects of pushing the “hate” button

  • Boys will be girls will be boys: undoing gender and teaching “gay is good” in our children’s schools

  • Something queer on our campuses: from traditional academics and the arts to GLBTQ and “ze”

  • Brokeback Mountain, the fab five, and Hollywood’s celebration of queer

  • Is gay the new black? Analyzing the argument that “I was born that way”

  • Speaking about the unspeakable: pro-pedophilia parallels to pro-gay arguments

  • Diversity or perversity? Corporate America’s embrace of gay pride at its worst

  • Lavender language, gender speak, and queer semantics: toward an omnisexual society?

  • Queer theology, a gay/lesbian bible, and a homoerotic Christ

  • It’s not about sex? The attempt to separate behavior from identity

  • The ex-gay movement: fact or fiction?

  • Stifling of scientific debate

  • Big brother is watching, and he really is gay

  • GLBT and beyond: reflections on our current trajectory

You will learn that if you are not in favor of homosexuality, there is now a term for you, too! “Heteronormativity” is the classification for those who think heterosexuality is the intended norm for the human race.

You will see that what is being taught in our public schools today goes far beyond “diversity.”

You will see that, coming soon, the concept of gender itself is going to be considered passe: A major U.S. city is moving toward “separating anatomy from what it means to be a man or a woman.”

And get ready for the normalization of incest: “If we no longer recognize the inherent wrongness of homosexual acts, we will have little or nothing to say to those who clamor for the ‘right’ to adult, consensual incestuous acts.”

What about children raised by same-sex parents? Listen to the head of the National Center for Lesbian Rights:

“There’s only one response to a study that children raised by lesbian and gay parents may be somewhat more likely to reject notions of rigid sexual orientation – that response has to be elation.”

One of the book’s many explosive revelations comes from Dr. Paul McHugh, a member of the President’s Council of Bioethics, chairman of the Johns Hopkins psychiatric department:

When Dr. McHugh became psyschiatrist-in-chief at Hopkins in 1975, he decided to test the claim that men who had sex change surgery found resolution for their problems:

He found that transgendered men were “no better in their psychological integration or any easier to live with. With these facts in hand I concluded that Hopkins was fundamentally cooperating with a mental illness. We psychiatrists, I thought, would do better to concentrate on trying to fix their minds and not their genitalia.

He later concluded: “We have wasted scientific and technical resources and damaged our professional credibility by collaborating with madness rather than trying to study, cure and ultimately prevent it.”

Anyone interested in the future direction of American culture – parents, teachers, political leaders, and all informed citizens – will find “A Queer Thing Happened To America” and important sourcebook, an “Everything You Need To Know …” on matters you perhaps did not know to ask about, or may have been embarrassed to do so.

If you want to know the truth for yourself, as well as be able to discuss, debate or write about GLBT issues with reference to objective or pro-GLBT sources, “A Queer Thing” is invaluable and the only work of its kind. The footnotes alone could form the basis for a doctoral dissertation.

Publishers were afraid to touch it – but you can get it today from the WND Superstore! Click here to order “A Queer Thing Happened To America”.

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.

US State Dept joins effort to criminalize free speech

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton working with UN, OIC to criminalize 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”

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….

Bumper Sticker vs. Islamic Supremacism


Sharia- USA no-want no-need

John R. Houk

© January 1, 2011

 

Other than the negative connotation of the term “Islamic Supremacism,” does anyone non-Muslim (we the kafir) know and understand what Islamic Supremacism entails?

 

Here is a simplified expression Islamic Supremacism:

 

ISLAMIC SUPREMACISM is the belief that Islam is superior to other religions, cultures, and governmental systems, and the belief that Islam’s superiority entitles Muslims to dominate, control, and rule non-Muslims.

Islam is a supremacist religion. The Hadith and Qur’an command every Muslim to strive until Islam dominates all other religions. The Qur’an says very clearly that the only legitimate form of government is Allah’s. …  (Soda Head; Whats Her Face; Islamic Supremacism)

 

Michael Anderson writing for the Facebook page 1683 AD provides some interesting thoughts to bring the words “Islamic Supremacism” to the attention of the everyday Westerner as they go about their day. The thought is to utilize the power of the Bumper Sticker.

 

1683 AD is all about Westerners reclaiming their Western heritage that roughly stretches from Ancient Greece, Judeo-Christianity and modern thoughts on Liberty and Freedom. I say “reclaim” because there is a serious challenge to Liberty and Freedom from Islamic Supremacism. I use the identification of “Westerner” because 1683 AD has a greater emphasis on Europe and more specifically the United Kingdom.

 

I actually find the Bumper Sticker concept quite intriguing. Using a Bumper Sticker to bring to the fore that Islamic Supremacism is an anti-Western plague that could end our lives as we know it would be an attention getter. Anderson believes the greatest negative aspect of the Bumper Sticker is the defacing of vehicles by Islamic Supremacists or perhaps Leftist Multiculturalists. Anderson has some interesting ideas to limit vandalism.

 

However, I believe the greatest negative aspect to the anti-Islamic Supremacist Bumper Sticker – especially in Europe – is criminal prosecution, fines or both. The most recent example of the lunacy of European hate-speech laws that I have discovered is that of an Austrian man yodeling while he mows his lawn because he got to listen to the call for Muslim prayer. The yodeler was fined a chunk of money because the Muslim neighbors were upset about being mocked as if the eerie Muezzin call to prayer five times a day in a land with a Christian heritage is not offensive.

 

The Bumper Sticker is an intriguing idea but I think it would be most successful in America. If the British or Europeans utilize a Bumper Stick protest they should be aware it would be an act of civil disobedience that might result in some kind Free Speech infringement resulting in a fine or incarceration.

Complain Public Muezzin Offends Christians and Atheists


Muezzin-The-Call-to-Prayer-1866

John R. Houk

© December 15, 2010

 

Another European nation is submitting to the dhimmitude paradigm of Islam. Austria has fined a 63 year old Austrian native for yodeling while mowing his lawn. The complainant Muslim neighbor expressed that his non-Muslim yodeling neighbor was mocking the Muslim Muezzin, which is an eerie sounding noise that calls all Muslims who can hear it to public prayer toward Mecca.

 

I don’t know about you, but this sound is not only eerie but quite inappropriate in a Western Cultural setting. Now I can see how yodeling at various times of the day might be disturbing to domestic sleeping but it is hardly as scary sounding as the Muslim call to prayer. In fact the sound of yodeling in its appropriate setting – especially in Austria and Switzerland – should be experienced with pride.

 

This is another Western case of submitting to an intolerant religion that demands everyone and all non-Muslim cultures to place their cultures in an inferior position to mollify Islamic Supremacism. Since I know in Europe the Muezzin does occur on a public basis, where is the protest that the sound is offensive to the few practicing Christians in Europe?

CAIR Pressures College to Drop Islamic History Class


CAIR-Hamas logo

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is at its religious Islamic Supremacist thuggery again. The Hamas terrorist front organization has used the clout of political correctness to shut down a Community College class that was to be taught by an ACT for America chapter leader in Oregon. ACT for America has stepped up to the plate with an email alert to flood Lane Community College of Eugene, OR with phone calls to express your displeasure with this infringement of the First Amendment right to share the truth of the negative aspects of Islam. I am sure you realize that public Colleges all over America do not hesitate to present a slanted historical perspective of the negative acts of Christianity. I read Muslim apologists all the time talk about the Crusades and the Inquisition as examples of Christian violence against non-Christians.

 

The thing that is missing from these attacks on Christianity is that acts of barbarity attributed to Christianity are the perspective that they occurred contrary to the Scriptures of Christianity. The thing that Islamic apologists mysteriously leave out is that the Islamic negative aspects are encoded in Muslim religious writing including the Quran.

 

Christ called on Believers to share the Good News. Those that believe are a soul been saved through faith. Those that reject are a soul or souls whose dust might have stuck to the shoes of the Good News bearers should be shaken off and move on to the next person or people to share the choice of Deliverance from the slavery Satan’s dark world system kingdom.

 

Mohammed called on his believers to offer submission to Allah without compulsion; however when freedom from compulsion fails then Mohammed directed his followers to conquer the dumb kafir and offer a new set of choices: convert, become a protect dhimmi without civil rights or die.

 

Now obviously you can tell I am a Christian. As an American I am not saying that the Christian haters be denied their First Amendment right to disparage Christian history; however the negative aspects of Islam written from a Christian historical perspective deserves equal time in Public School and Public institutions of higher learning.

 

So read the ACT for America email I am posting below and follow their activist suggestions to let Lane Community College of Eugene, OR be aware that their choice of allowing the school to be bullied was an un-American choice.

College caves in to CAIR – ACTION ALERT

URGENT! Please call Lane Community College to voice your opposition

ACT! for America chapter leader Barry Sommer had a contract to teach a class about Islam at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon—until last week.

That’s when CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, using its typical propaganda smear tactics, put pressure on the college to remove Barry as the instructor.

Shamefully, Lane Community College caved in and canceled the class.

In doing so, the college made itself complicit with CAIR’s continuing assault on the first amendment and its mission to impose sharia law in America.

We cannot sit by and do nothing. We MUST send a message to Lane Community College that caving in to CAIR, a front group for the terrorist organization Hamas, is outrageous and unacceptable.

Here’s what we’re asking you to do.

 

Call the Lane Community College main switchboard, 541-463-3000. THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SENDING AN EMAIL. Why? Because we want to barrage the college with hundreds, even thousands of phone calls, today and tomorrow. This way the college will KNOW without a doubt that there are many Americans who object to the college’s actions.

When you call, ask to speak to Mary Spilde, college president, or the college’s public relations employee. In a firm but respectful tone, tell the person you speak to (or leave a voice mail) that you are outraged by the college’s decision to cave in to the demands of an organization like CAIR and suppress free speech on its campus, and that you are asking the college to reconsider and reinstate the class and Barry Sommer as instructor.

If you’re unable to get through when you call, that’s a good thing! That means many others are calling. Please try again later, or tomorrow.

If you can’t get through on the phone, or just can’t call for some reason, please send an email to Ms. Spilde expressing your outrage and asking that the class be reinstated—again, in a firm but respectful tone. Her email address is spildem@lanecc.edu. But remember—calling is better than emailing.

 

We’re sure Lane Community College receives federal dollars, so everyone of us who pays taxes, no matter where we live, are helping to support the college. Thus, we have a right to make our voice heard!

 

What’s more, we need to send a message to other colleges across the country that Americans are not just going to sit back and watch while CAIR assaults the first amendment in its goal to impose sharia law on America!

 

Please place your phone call today or tomorrow! And please forward this email to others you know so that they can do the same.
