Leftist Tech NGO Donates to Islamists

Have you heard of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation? If you live in California, you probably have heard of SVCF. Adding California and SVCF, it is not difficult to pigeon-hole a wide Leftist influence. Here are some excerpts from the SCVF About Us page:

 

Silicon Valley Community Foundation advances innovative philanthropic solutions to challenging problems.

 

Since SVCF formed in 2007, we’ve become the largest community foundation in the world, with more than $8 billion in assets under management.

 

We partner with families, individuals and corporations to manage and facilitate their philanthropy. We connect donors’ interests to the most pressing needs, whether in Silicon Valley or around the globe.  As a comprehensive center for philanthropy, SVCF shapes critical public policy issues, partners with nonprofit groups and institutions advancing the best ideas and directs resources swiftly and strategically toward unforeseen needs.

 

 

What We Do

 

We play an exciting role in addressing the social, economic, and environmental challenges of our communities. SVCF provides leadership, expertise and capital to help address social issues in our region. We also serve as a resource for nonprofit, civic, government and philanthropic organizations. There are four primary ways in which we contribute:

 

  • Commission research: We commission research to identify emerging issues, monitor trends and provide analysis. To read about research we have recently commissioned, visit the publications page.

 

  • Conduct public discussions: We bring people together to engage in discussion and problem solving. These events often stimulate new insights while encouraging diverse perspectives. Check our calendar for information on upcoming events and discussions.

 

  • Advocate: We take principled positions on critical issues and advocate policy outcomes. To learn more about policy, visit the publications page.

 

  • Create initiatives: We often launch initiatives and special projects, partnering with other foundations, corporations, nonprofits, donors and government agencies to work on specific topics or issues. Visit our Initiatives page for more information.

 

… You can READ THE REST

 

Notice the about page says nothing about a Left agenda, advanced by Left-darling Obama, to fundamentally transform America.

 

Transform” means change America’s traditional Christian moral stance, change American attitudes toward alternative lifestyles, change the Rule of Law from an Originalist Constitution to a Living Constitution, change American self-reliance to Big Government reliance, change the American Market Economy into a State Managed Economy AND probably more American changes I can’t think of off the top of my head.

 

I have learned via Change.org that SVCF has hopped on board of the Leftist agenda to promote counter-Christian religions to dilute and eventually eradicate Christianity’s traditional influence on America. In this case that religion is Islam.

 

As a part of the SVCF community enhancement, the foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to American radical Islamic organizations that have been caught at least by association to have been supportive of Islamic terrorism abroad.

 

This is fundamentally WRONG to be an American and yet be supportive of religious entities that seek the destruction of the American way of life.

 

Unlike this petition that distinguishes between Islam & Islamism and according to my readings of the Quran, Hadith and Sunna; Islam is a theopolitical supremacist religion that stands against everything America stands. That is the reason I signed the petition.

 

I encourage you to sign the petition as well.

 

Below is the full text of the petition on Change.org. Perhaps if you have not been convinced to sign as yet, reading the petition will encourage you.

The Silicon Valley Community Foundation Must Stop Funding Islamist Hate Groups

 

 

Mark Zuckerberg & Siraj Wahhaj

 

Petition from Middle East Forum

United States

Change.org

 

In 2008-15, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) provided eight donations totaling $330,524 to two extremist organizations. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) received five donations totaling $132,933. Islamic Relief received three donations totaling $197,591.

 

We differentiate between Islam and Islamism. American Muslims are an important part of our country; but Islamists pursue an extreme political ideology with no real mandate from ordinary Muslims.

 

Islamists such as those running CAIR and Islamic Relief encourage hatred against women, Jews, Christians, the LGBTQ community, and Muslims belonging to minority sects. Islamists radicalize Muslims in the United States and fund jihadi violence abroad.

 

CAIR and Islamic Relief duplicitously employ liberal rhetoric in their pursuit of illiberal ideas, sometimes successfully duping politicians, journalists, academics, and philanthropists.

The Middle East Forum and its allies oppose all funding of Islamist organizations because this money both legitimizes Islamists as the voice of America’s Muslims and betrays those moderate Muslims working to free their faith from the grip of hatred and extremism.

 

SVCF is the largest community foundation in the United States. With over 8 billion dollars in assets under management, it is the go-to charitable organization for some of America’s wealthiest philanthropists. Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, made a $500 million dollar donation to the foundation in 2013. America’s largest community foundation and its philanthropic partners should not support organizations that promulgate extremism both here and abroad.

We the undersigned call upon the SVCF to immediately stop all funding of extremist groups, including CAIR and Islamic Relief.

 

Appendix 1: What Are CAIR and Islamic Relief?

 

CAIR was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial. The FBI has banned outreach with CAIR since 2008. In 2014, the United Arab Emirates, a pious Muslim country, designated CAIR a terrorist organization. The Anti-Defamation League accuses CAIR of promoting anti-Jewish sentiment. Six CAIR leaders have been arrested, convicted, or deported for terrorism-related crimes: Randall (“Ismail”) Royer, Ghassan ElashiBassem Khafagi, Rabih HaddadNabil Sadoun, and Muthanna Al-Hanooti.

 

Islamic Relief is the largest Islamic charity in America and the Western world, reporting an income of about $110 million in 2014. But it is a designated terrorist entity in Israel and the UAE. Banks such as UBS and HSBC have closed Islamic Relief bank accounts over concerns about terrorism financing.

 

Appendix 2: Examples of CAIR and Islamic Relief Hate Speakers

 

Siraj Wahhaj is a former member of CAIR’s advisory board and one of CAIR’s most regular speakers.

 

  • LGTBQ:“I don’t believe any of you are homosexual. This is a disease of this          society. … you know what the punishment is, if a man is found with another man? The Prophet Mohammad said the one who does it and the one to whom it is done to, kill them both.

 

  • Infidels“Woe to the Muslims who pick kafirs [a derogatory Arabic word meaning non-Muslims] for friends. … Take not into your intimacy those outside of your race. They will not fail to corrupt you. Don’t you know our children are surrounded by kafirs. I’m telling you, making the hearts of our children corrupt, dirty, foul.” 

 

Hussain Kamani is a Deobandi preacher who has spoken at multiple Islamic Relief events.

 

  • Sex slavery and adultery: Kamani explains that Muslim men may fulfill any sexual desires “with a female slave that belongs to him.” Those who commit adultery or have sex outside of marriage, he asserts, must be “stoned to death.” When Muslim husbands are learning to “train their wives,” beating them is allowed as a “last measure.”

 

Abdul Nasir Jangda, also from the Deobandi sect, has been promoted and given platforms by both Islamic Relief and CAIR.

 

  • Non-consensual sex: Detailed notes published by Jangda’s students indicate that he defends the use of female sex slaves and justifies marital rape: “The thing to understand is that the husband has his set of divinely given rights one of which is the right to have his physical desires satisfied.”

 

  • Death penalty:He advocates the killing of apostates and adulterers.

 

Omar Suleiman is one of the most frequent speakers at  CAIR and Islamic Relief events.

 

  • Honor killings: “Sisters … you know what happens with a really jealous Dad? He kills you and he kills the guy. You are offending Allah … whenever you make yourself promiscuous or you open yourself up to a relationship.”

 

  • Homosexuality:“When Allah describes homosexuality as a repugnant shameless sin and details his punishment of a people that practiced sodomy, how can anyone who believes in Allah not find it immoral?  If as Muslims we don’t take a clear stance on this, we will be forced to conform and watch this disease destroy our children.”

 

Muzammil Siddiqi is chairman of the Fiqh Council of North America and the religious director at the Islamic Society of Orange County. He works closely with CAIR and often speaks at its events.

 

  • HomosexualityHe publicly supports the death penalty for homosexuals.

 

Hassan Shibly is a CAIR staffer, the head of its Florida office.

 

  • Homosexuality: He expresses hatred for the LGBT community, as in this tweet where he says homosexuality is a quick way “to earn God’s wrath.”  

 

Jamal Badawi is a recent board member of CAIR’s Canada branch and a popular speaker at CAIR events in the United States.

Polston Suspension Lifted – Prof Zufari Resigns


John R. Houk

© April 14, 2017

 

I just an ACT for America email update on Rollins College suspending a student for openly disagree with a Muslim Prof who was indoctrinating the class about the Crucifixion of Cross saying it was a hoax.

 

The student – Marshall Polston. The Professor – Areej Zufari.

 

After Polston publicly complained about his suspension, Counterjihad investigators began to Areej Zufari’s life. The discovery was that she was a Jew-hating radical Muslim working at Rollins College in Florida. Zufari was a mistress to a married Syrian whose name is Maher Ghawji:

 

Joe Kaufman, an investigative journalist for FrontPage Magazine and Chairman of Americans Against Hate a civil rights organization and terrorism watchdog group, filed an affidavit No. CT-003545-04 naming Professor Zufari and her then husband Maher Ghawji a medical doctor based in Memphis, Tennessee. The affidavit reads in part:

 

8. Maher Ghawji has admitted to his wife of being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a violent political movement whose members are sworn to “defend Islam” with their “blood.” He accepted this status with a group of friends, during a trip they had made to Cairo, Egypt (Exhibit 1). He left Syria around 1982, the year a government-led massacre took place in the town of Hama – a Brotherhood stronghold – which resulted in the deaths of 10,000 to 40,000 people (Exhibit 2). Following the massacre, members of the Brotherhood fled Syria, some leaving for the U.S. or Europe, some joining up with Osama bin Laden to fight in Afghanistan (Exhibit 3).

 

9. During his court deposition, on June 4, 2004, Maher Ghawji admitted to the court and to his wife of being a Wahhabi, an adherent to a fanatical religious form of Islam READ THE REST (Orlando’s Muslim Professor Areeje Zufari — Profile of a ‘Radical Islamic Supremacist’; By Dr. Rich Swier; Website – Dr. Rich Swier; 3/28/17)

Knowing about Zufari’s boyfriend is quite significant; however, if one believes there is Radical Islam inherent in Zufari merely because she is married to a Muslim Brotherhood Jihadi operative, this will change your mind:

 

Zufari served as the spokesperson and Director of Communications for the Islamic Society of Central Florida (ISCF) from 2001 to at least 2004, according to the author bio from her 2012 book “Beyond the Headlines” and press communications from the organization. ISCF’s main mosque, Masjid al-Rahman, is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), which was classified by federal prosecutors as both an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing case and as an entity that is or was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

In this case, the Muslim Brotherhood’s goals were identified as “establish[ing] a network of organizations in the U.S. to spread a militant Islamist message and raise money for Hamas,” and “eliminating the State of Israel through violent jihad.” Former FBI special agent Robert Stauffer stated that NAIT’s role in the Muslim Brotherhood is that of a nonprofit financial holding company, according to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.

 

Security policy expert Alex Alexiev reports in the National Review that NAIT is “the proprietor of hundreds of radical mosques and Islamic institutions in the U.S., including some that have been closed down by the government as criminal enterprises.” According to the Hudson Institute, NAIT is the title owner of at least 25% of all Islamic facilities in the United States with some estimates reaching up to 79%. ISCF has not responded to multiple calls and emails asking if Zufari still holds a position with the organization.

 

In recent years ISCF has received notable publicity for terrorism fundraising activities. In 2009, ISCF sponsored and held an event at Masjid al-Rahman that raised at least $55,000 for George Galloway’s Viva Palestina, which has been criticized as being a financial conduit for the terrorist organization Hamas. Indeed, in 2009 Galloway held a public press conference where he handed a bag of cash over to Hamas leadership.

 

 

While its website claims that the organization is for peaceful practitioners of Islam, earlier this year Imam Musri welcomed Sheikh Mohammed Rateb Al-Nabulsi, a radical Muslim cleric who openly calls for the death of Jews and gays, according to Heritage Florida Jewish News.

 

In recent years Rollins College appears to have forged deep connections with ISCF and the two have engaged in affiliated projects dating as far back as 1998. Rollins has collaborated on several events with the ISCF, including one as late as September of 2016, according to the ISCF’s Twitter page.

 

… Zufari was caught up in the middle of a divorce case between Rosine Ghawji and her husband, Maher Ghawji, a Syrian-born endocrinologist, whom Rosine has exposed as a supporter of and donor to radical Islamic activities.

 

Proof of the affair, found in the affidavit of counter-terrorism expert Joe Kaufman, showed that Zufari had been planning a trip to a nudist resort with Maher Ghawji, a man who admitted in court to giving money to his brother, who ended up being a part of a terrorist-linked organization, according to page 32 of the court filing. Specifically, a …

 

Six years prior to their divorce, Rosine [Maher Ghawji’s ex-wife] began acting as an FBI informant leaking information about her ex-husband, who she claims revealed himself to her to be a member of the Muslim Brotherhood early on in their relationship.

 

Email evidence uncovered in the court filing shows that the two were so deeply involved that Zufari had gone to Syria and visited with Ghawji’s family. This past Wednesday, Zufari’s sister confirmed in a comment on a Facebook post that at one point they were even engaged to be married, but claims “their relationship didn’t last for other reasons” after the court trial had ended.

 

According to point 20 of her lawsuit against Zufari, Rosine alleges that throughout the affair Zufari was aware of her ex-husband’s extremist beliefs, and was even complicit in the plan to radicalize Ghawji’s two children, Louis and Tarek “K.K.” Ghawji.

 

 

When asked to respond to the situation and Zufari’s ties to radical Islam, Rollins College spokeswoman Jo Marie Hebeler said the following in a statement:

 

Rollins College is welcoming and respectful of all religious and cultural beliefs. As an institution of higher education, we value and encourage diversity of opinions and respectful discourse. In accordance with FERPA and our institutional policies, it is our responsibility to respect the privacy and confidentiality of all involved in this incident, students and faculty alike. The safety and fair treatment of all members of our campus community is of utmost concern.”

 

Rollins College stated there will be no further comment on the situation. READ ENTIRETY (PROF. AT ROLLINS COLLEGE INVOLVED IN SUSPENDING CHRISTIAN STUDENT HAS TIES TO ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS; By Will Nardi and Zach Swaim; FrontPageMag.com; 4/4/17)

 

Ergo the Rollins College multicultural diversity policy means the college looks the other way when Islamic terrorist supporting apply for employment. YOU have to wonder if the college has other Islamic terrorist supporting staff under their employ?

 

Marshal Polston had his suspension lifted after only a week. AND Islamic terrorist supporting Areej Zufari has voluntarily resigned as a Professor at Rollins College.

 

And yet Rollins College insists Polston did not get suspended for arguing with Areej Zufari. Rather the college claims Polston was suspended for social media disrespect and vulgarity against college staff. The only proof of such disrespect and vulgarity is an email sent to Zufari complaining of receiving a failing grade for disagreeing with her facts. I found the email at WND:

 

We need to talk as soon as possible over phone or in your office because you have been extremely unfair to me and pursuit a ruthless program of hostility in your recent grading simply due to the fact that I disagree with you on your inherent bias and clandestine theological apologies. I’m actually a nice person but not when I’m viciously attacked. I’d be just as happy to go to the dean about this issue.

 

I’m emailing you about the first essay in your Rollins class. You recently failed me with a 52% despite the fact that I followed all the guidelines listed, covered all the topics and asked you directly about the problem areas. I specifically asked you about sources in person as a result of your request that the paper be an analysis and not research. Everything I wrote came from personal memory and research or first hand experience in my travels with the government, personal visits with friends, teaching experiences or philanthropic efforts in the Middle East.

 

Quite frankly the grade you assigned to me exposes your a true agenda which is to silence me in class. As I told you before I’m not interested in speaking anymore. But since you’ve decided to carry a blitzkrieg out against me, I may have to speak up in regards to your extreme bias and not necessarily to the class but to the dean. You’re one of the most incompetent professors I have ever seen in my entire life.

 

It’s very clear you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. You may have a college degree but you belong in a reform school.

 

First you conflate the immaculate conception and virgin birth which are totally different. Then you state that middle eastern Jews were Sephardic when in fact they are mostly Mizrahi Sephardic Jews only emigrated from Spain to North Africa and Istanbul and we’re NEVER native.

 

I could go on and on and on. Everybody knows that you’re a failure as a Professor — Rest assured I’m not the only one!!! I have dozens of examples to pull from that I’ve noticed during the class.

 

I think it’s great to be a theological apologist but not in a secular setting — I don’t know whether this was just a mistake or not so I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. In order to stop a textual embarrassment in the Quran from coming to light in class you proceeded to ignore the facts when I asked a pertinent question about Mohammed. He had an adopted son which divorced his wife so he could marry him and although you finally admitted it was twisted, it took until I looked up the verse that you believed me.

 

Your bias is blatantly evident in your misinformation about the historical Jesus and moreover manifested in the lack of discussion about Wellhausen’s documentary hypothesis (with you taking the theological position that Moses wrote the first five books of the Torah). No one takes either position that you gave in the archaeological or secular biblical fields.

 

Also your brainwashing session about sharia law at the United States of Rollins ignores what the vast majority of people in countries like Egypt and Iraq really believe in regards to misogyny, homophobia or religious freedom.

 

I agree that sharia law can be reformed but in the context of the seventh century, let’s not jump to utopian conclusions about sharia law’s original implementation in society. I understand that you are much more liberal Muslim which is great but quite frankly it astonishes me your hypocrisy. On the one hand you report me to the dean for correcting you while you were indoctrinating students with false information. On the other hand a Muslim student in class cracks a joke about chopping someone’s body parts off and you do nothing. Yes I have witnesses – I’m not the only one who has a concern about your agenda and overt bias. [Blog Editor’s bold text]

 

It’s really cowardly of you to shut me down in the middle of class or lie to the dean but I should be careful when saying that because that would be insulting to cowards. There’s something seriously wrong and depraved about you when you think my intellectual conversation is more threatening than the despicable comments about decapitation made by the student in question! SICK! [Blog Editor’s bold text]

 

I hope we don’t have to escalate this issue and you’ll stop this crusade against me. I would really hate to get in contact with some national media personalities that I’m good friends with but I’m going to have to take it there or pursue legal options if you don’t stop your harassment toward me.

 

Hmm … I see an upset student over an unjust/undeserving failing grade AND NOTHING physically threatening, disrespectful or vulgar. Since Rollins College multicultural diversity policy does not preclude hiring Islamic terrorist supporters, it is not surprising the college uses an age old Islamic tenet in fabricating a suspension reason – Taqiyya (aka Lying).

 

The ACT for America is taking its share of credit for Areej Zufari resigning, but says nothing of Marshall Polston’s reinstatement. ACT uses the email as a fundraiser. Give or not, that’s up to you. ACT for America is a worthy cause if you have the extra cash.

 

Well, to make this post lengthier, I am cross posting ACT’s email followed by The Blaze’s update on Marshall Polston. Those are the two sources I initially read that chapped my hide about Rollins College’s idiotic multicultural diversity policy.

Thanks to you, radical Islamic Professor Areej Zufari has resigned from Rollins College.

 

After being caught red handed indoctrinating students, and slandering one who stood up to her radical agenda, Marshall Polston, ACT for America came to the rescue.

 

Zufari was on the FBI terror watch list for connections to a co-conspirator in the first WTC bombing, and was an explicit anti-Semite.

ACT for America mobilized its grassroots army to bombard the college with tens of thousands of emails and calls demanding the reinstatement of Marshall Polston and the firing of the radical professors. We made life so difficult for her and the college, she resigned on her own.

 

Chalk up another victory for our grassroots machine, which continues to grow in both size and influence.

 

We want to thank you for standing by our side in this fight to identify, expose, and remove radical Islamic Professors from college campuses across the country.

 

At ACT for America, we don’t just talk about the threats facing our nation, we ACT to eradicate them.

 

Let this be a lesson that your phone calls matter. Your emails matter. Your voice matters, and together, we are going to make America a safer place to call home.

Muslim prof accused by Christian student of saying Jesus’ crucifixion is a hoax resigns from college

A Muslim professor at a small Florida college has resigned after a bitter dispute with a Christian student which included theological dust-ups, angry emails, a police report, a suspension for the student — and a reversal of the suspension — all of which made national headlines.

 

The professor, Areej Zufari, wanted 20-year-old sophomore Marshall Polston out of her Middle Eastern humanities class at Rollins College after doing battle with him for most of the spring semester. Polston accused her of saying Jesus’ crucifixion is a hoax and that his disciples didn’t believe he is God — but that wasn’t his only issue.

 

In an email to Zufari after receiving a failing grade on an essay, Polston wrote “you report me to the dean for correcting you while you were indoctrinating students with false information. On the other hand a Muslim student in class cracks a joke about chopping someone’s body parts off and you do nothing.”

 

The controversy spread beyond the private liberal arts school in Winter Park, which received thousands of angry messages about the professor.

 

The school’s President Grant Cornwell told the Orlando Sentinel that Zufari quit “because of the hateful threats and emails and phones messages she was getting. I think it’s a terrible injustice, but I do respect her decision.”

 

In addition, Cornwall told the paper that Polston’s suspension in late March — which was rescinded after a week — wasn’t over his theological dispute with Zufari but because of his “vulgar” and “mean-spirited” Facebook comments to another student. The president added to the Sentinel that since Polston’s posts didn’t constitute a specific threat, he was reinstated.

 

However, Polston’s reinstatement letter from Rollins College says his behavior was connected to more than just a single student, noting he had been “aggressive, disrespectful, and at times, vulgar in multiple verbal and electronic communications with faculty, staff and students.”

 

Cornwall’s revelation about Polston’s “vulgar” and “mean-spirited” Facebook comments was the the first time the school gave its reason for the suspension, the Sentinel reported, adding that the school wouldn’t comment earlier, citing student privacy laws.

 

But at the time, Cornwall did insist the school “never ever ever” would suspend a student simply for disagreeing with a professor.

 

Polston’s attorney Kenneth Lewis told the Sentinel the Facebook post was “nothing” and “a total joke” — and that the classroom dispute was the real reason for his client’s suspension.

 

Before Polston’s suspension, Zufari sought an injunction against him for “protection against stalking,” the paper said, citing court records — but she withdrew the injunction request last week.

 

Cornwell added to the Sentinel that school officials interviewed other students in Zufari’s class who disputed Polston’s allegations — and that the school decided his failing grade was appropriate after reviewing Polston’s essay.

 

“I was upset, understandably,” Polston told the Central Florida Post about his failing grade. “I’ve never gotten anything less than straight As, so I was really interested in figuring out how to possibly improve or at least understand the grade.”

 

In 2013, Rollins College kicked InterVarsity Christian Fellowship off campus because the student group required its leaders to be Christian and promote certain conservative beliefs, the Sentinel reported, which constituted a violation of the school’s anti-discrimination policy.

 

This story has been updated.

Oil Independence: Our Modern Day Slingshot


David slays Goliath with sling

ACT for America takes the logical stand that oil dependence from Muslim dominated nations are dollars in Islamic terrorists’ pockets. Oil cash is likely not the only source of terrorist income. For example, Islamic charities in the West claiming the Moderate moniker actually are quite supportive of Islamic terrorists often via stealth measures. Nevertheless, ending oil dependence from Muslim nations would cause a big hit in the pocketbooks of Caliphate-minded transnational terrorists.

Last week, I attended a special event on Capitol Hill:  The Jewish Heritage Commission’s and AISH International’s “Celebration and Presentation of the King David Award”.

Since 1994, the King David Award has recognized men and women who have made dramatic contributions to American society and Jewish heritage.  Marc Goldman, a good friend of ACT for America, was one of this year’s award recipients.  Marc is an accomplished businessman, involved in multiple charitable activities, and is a steadfast patriot who has devoted much of his life to protecting both Israel and the U.S.

I attend many events on the Hill, and I certainly hear a lot of speeches.  Marc’s words, however, were particularly inspiring.  He reminded us that just as God provided a slingshot to defeat Goliath, He has provided the free Western world a slingshot to defeat its current-day enemies.

What did he mean?  Here is a small excerpt from Marc’s speech to help explain:

 

Today’s Western Civilization faces a much bigger threat than David did.  Nuclear weapons – our enemies have them and have promised to use them against us.  There will be no recovery if they do, so there is no time to waste. We must overcome our complacency. So what do we do?  God gave David the slingshot.  What slingshot has he given us and how do we use it?  

It turns out we do have a slingshot, a very effective one.  If we just have the will, courage and faith as David did, we too can use it.  The slingshot we have is to end oil dependence…. This slingshot will be the shot heard around the world. And we can emulate the example that King David set for us, our enemies will scatter and we will make the world a better, safer, and even cleaner place and then we can begin to bring peace, love, and harmony to all of God’s children.”

Achieving oil independence (specifically allowing consumers transportation fuel choice) in order to stop terror funding, has been an issue on which ACT for America has been working for years.  Only when oil is no longer a worldwide strategic commodity will our modern-day enemies lose their petrodollar-purchased terror weapons.

 

 

TAKE ACTION

 

Please register your support for H.R. 2418, the Fuel Choice for American Prosperity and Security Act, with your U.S. legislator.  We’ve done all the work for you. Simply click HERE to learn more information about the bill, and to send your e-mail.

Take action on this bill now. You can help. You can make a difference.

Stripping our enemies of the ability to fund terror through oil money is the only real “silver bullet” to defeating worldwide jihadi terrorism.  Utilizing solely our domestic oil certainly is a step in the right direction, but it won’t solve the much larger problem: Enemy nations setting the world-wide price of oil and then using the proceeds to fund terror. Working together, we can stop this.

Thank you for all that you do.

PMW open letter to the Danish Foreign Minister


BHO-Kerry prepare to stab Israel in back toon

Palestine Media Watch takes on Denmark’s Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen support for the Fatah terrorist organization the backbone for both the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Palestinian Authority (PA) – See Also HERE. Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia on Jensen:

 

Kristian Jensen (born May 21, 1971) is a Danish politician who has been Minister for Foreign Affairs of Denmark and Deputy Prime Minister since 2015. He is a spokesperson for the Liberal party Venstre. He was the Minister for Taxation from 2004 to 2010 and has been a member of parliament (Folketinget) since March 11, 1998.[1]During his time as Tax Minister, Kristian Jensen was a keen proponent of a “tax freeze.”

 

Jensen was the Venstre’s spokesman on information technology and sports from 1998 to 2001 and became its spokesman on finance policy, as well as Vice-Chairman of the Financial Affairs Committee, in 2001.[1]

 

At the liberal party’s congress on 17 May 2009, Kristian Jensen was elected as vice president of the liberal party, without any other candidates running for the post.

 

If Venstre lost the 2015 election, then Kristian Jensen was considered very likely to be the next leader of the political party. Unlike the current leader of Venstre, who is rated as very untrustworthy in polls,[2] there are no controversies associated with Kristian Jensen. In the event, Venstre was able to form a minority government, with Jensen becoming Minister of Foreign Affairs on 28 June 2015. (last modified on 13 February 2016, at 09:25.)

 

Kristian Jensen

 

Denmark’s Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen believes the Palestinian Authority is a Moderate representative of the Palestinians residing in Israel’s hereditary area of Judea and Samaria (Palestinian supporters prefer West Bank or Occupied Territories) rather than permeated with Islamic Jew-hating terrorists. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) sets him straight.

PMW open letter to the Danish Foreign Minister:

Fatah promotes terror

PMW SPECIAL REPORT

Bulletin    

March 29, 2016

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

 

Open letter to the Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs:

Fatah promotes terror 

 

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) calls on Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs to reassess Denmark’s relationship to Fatah due to Fatah’s ongoing terror support

 

  • Responding to Palestinian Media Watch documentation, Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs Kristian Jensen admitted he “opposes” a Fatah official’s terror glorification. However, the minister continues to view Fatah as “moderate” because the official, he believes, did not speak “on behalf of Fatah, the PLO, the Palestinian Authority or the Palestinian government.” [Danish Ministry of Forein (sic) Affairs, Jan. 22, 2016]

 

  • This PMW report corrects the Danish minister’s mistake. It documents that numerous senior Fatah leaders, Abbas’ advisors, Mahmoud Abbas himself, the Fatah Central Committee headed by Mahmoud Abbas, and official Fatah media are all actively supporting and glorifying the current terror. Neither Fatah, nor any of its leaders, have condemned even one murder of an Israeli during the last 5 months of terror. To the contrary, they have glorified the terror and the terrorists.

 

  • PMW welcomes the statement by the Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs indicating that were Fatah, its leaders and the PA glorifying terror, Denmark would “reassess” its categorization of Fatah as “moderate.”

 

The following is an excerpt from the report that Palestinian Media Watch 

 sent to the Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs on March 20, 2016

PART 1

 

  1. Letter from Palestinian Media Watch

to Minister for Foreign Affairs of Denmark Kristian Jensen

 

Dear Minister for Foreign Affairs of Denmark Kristian Jensen,
This letter and report is in response to your recent answer to Question S507 asked by MP Søren Espersen in Danish Parliament regarding statements published by PMW made by Abbas Zaki, a member of the Palestinian Fatah Central Committee, in which he glorified terror against Israelis, stating that “Allah loves our young people with rocks and knives.” You described Zaki’s words as “a sad example of inflammatory rhetoric” that you “oppose,” adding, however, that you would not reassess whether Fatah remains a “moderate” partner for Denmark because Zaki is:

“A Fatah member residing in Lebanon, who is not considered to have spoken on behalf of Fatah, the PLO, the Palestinian Authority or the Palestinian government… The statement does not give the government any reason to reconsider the assessment of Fatah and the movement’s leader, President Abbas.” [Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jan. 22, 2016, the question and answer appear at the end of the report]

 

However, this report shows that your refusal to “reconsider the assessment” of Fatah as “moderate” is based on wrong information. Not only does Zaki reside in the PA, but more importantly, Fatah has not been a moderating voice during this current terror campaign. On the contrary, Fatah and its senior leadership are actively promoting terror against Israelis, including the unequivocal glorification of those who have killed and injured Israelis in terror attacks.

 

Accordingly, PMW welcomes your statement implying that Denmark would “reassess” and take action if senior Fatah officials, the PLO, or the PA were shown to engage in hate speech, encourage terror attacks, and glorify terrorists. This document shows that a reassessement by the Danish government is warranted.

  1. Documentation of Fatah actively promoting terror – in brief

The following are brief examples of Fatah actively promoting terror (additional and detailed documentation appears later in the report):

 

Jibril Rajoub, Deputy-Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee promotes terror

Jibril Rajoub is Deputy-Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee. He is also Head of the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association, and Chairman of the Palestinian Olympic Committee. Several times, Rajoub has endorsed and praised the terror attacks against Israelis and lauded the terrorists carrying them out:

 

Dep. Sec Fatah-terrorism are acts of Bravery

Dep. Sec Fatah-terrorism are acts of Bravery

 

Jibril Rajoub: “These are individual acts of bravery, and I am proud of them. I congratulate everyone who carried them out. I say to you, we are proud of you… Whoever confronts, fights, dies as a Martyr, is arrested or injured – his identity is known. What I mean is that the fighter, the prisoner, or the Martyr, they are assets to the entire Palestinian people… The international community does not agree to a bus exploding in Tel Aviv. But the international community does not ask what happens to a settler or soldier in the occupied territories at the wrong time and in the wrong place. No one asks about him! Therefore, we want to fight in such a way that the world and the international community will remain by our side.” [Official PA TV, Oct. 17, 2015]

 

Dep. Sec Fatah-Terrorists are heroes

Dep. Sec Fatah-Terrorists are heroes

Jibril Rajoub: “Yesterday in Hebron, they escorted 17 Martyrs to burial. This is of course a source of pride for all of us. I say that whoever carried out individual acts of heroism, we in the Fatah movement bless and encourage them. We consider them heroes and a crown on the head of every Palestinian. At this point, when there is weakening and frustration, there is a group of people, beginning with our brother Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist who murdered 2) and ending with the last Martyr… There is a competition between individuals. This is one of the issues we need to address – are we for or against it? I say that we in the [Fatah] Central Committee have discussed this matter, and we are in favor.” [Official PA TV, Jan. 2, 2016]

 

Fatah Central Committee promotes and endorses terror

Very significantly, in the above statement about attacks carried out by individuals, Rajoub expressed the Fatah Central Committee’s support for the terror when he stated that “we in the [Fatah] Central Committee have discussed this matter, and we are in favor.”

It must be stressed that the Fatah Central Committee is Fatah’s governing body and headed by Mahmoud Abbas.
Official Fatah TV promotes murder

Official Fatah TV broadcast a music video calling for murder of Israelis: “Besiege them in all their neighborhoods, Drown them in a sea of blood, Kill them as you wish”

 

Pal Media- Drown Jews in Sea of Blood

Fatah’s official Facebook page and Twitter account promote terror

Fatah’s official Facebook page and Twitter account have been a central part of this terror campaign, glorifying the terror almost daily. From the outset, Fatah has been glorifying murder using numerous posts, including the following examples which visually express Fatah’s explicit promotion of stabbing murders:

 

Fatah Facebook page- Terrorists be victorious or die

Text: “We’ll be victorious or die”

[Official Fatah Twitter account, Oct. 12, 2015]

 

Fatah has also glorified several murderers on its Facebook page, among them Muhannad Halabi who stabbed 2 to death in the Old City of Jerusalem, Nashat Melhem who shot and killed 3 in Tel Aviv, and Bashar Masalha who killed 1 in Tel Aviv-Jaffa:

 

Fatah brought soil from the Al-Aqsa Mosque to the grave of terrorist Muhannad Halabi, who murdered two in the Old City of Jerusalem “so that the dead body of Martyr Muhannad Halabi can hug the soil for which he died a Martyr.” [Fatah Twitter account, Oct. 8, 2015]

 

Fatah glorified Tel Aviv murderer of 3: “Congratulations and may Allah receive you in Heaven”

 

Abbas’ Fatah movement posted an uncensored version of the picture of dead terrorist Nashat Melhem lying in a pool of blood. It also praised the killer of 3 as a “Martyr” and congratulated him on its official Facebook page. Nashat Melhem was a 29-year-old Israeli Arab terrorist who carried out a shooting attack, killing 3 Israelis and wounding 8 others in Tel Aviv on Jan. 1, 2016:

Fatah honored murderer who killed 1 and injured 11 in an attack in Tel Aviv-Jaffa 

Fatah’s official Facebook page posted a drawing of a knife held over the PA map of “Palestine” that includes all of Israel and the PA areas, with the name of the murderer written on it.

Official Fatah anniversary celebrations in Bethlehem promote terror

Another example of Fatah showing itself as a terror promoting organization was seen in January this year, when Fatah held a march in Bethlehem to mark its 51st anniversary. To celebrate, Fatah had children parade in the streets of Bethlehem wearing suicide belts and carrying knives, guns and RPGs, alongside Fatah flags. [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 8, 2016]

Fatah Central Committee members promote and glorify terror

As was shown above, in the words of Deputy-Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub, the Fatah Central Committee is “in favor” of “attacks by individuals” against Israelis. The following are statements by three members of the Central Committee corroborating this Fatah support for terror. (More statements by these and additional members of the Central Committee appear later in the report.)

 

Sultan Abu Al-Einein, Fatah Central Committee member and advisor to Mahmoud Abbas, promotes terror

One Fatah Central Committee member who also serves as an advisor to Mahmoud Abbas, Sultan Abu Al-Einein, likewise promotes terror. Abu Al-Einein blessed the terrorists from the current terror campaign, saying: “We bow before every drop of blood that has dripped from our children and women… and every… Martyr’s mother, who… when they notified her of his death as a Martyr, she let cries of joy loose to the Heavens.” [Falestinona, website of Fatah’s Information and Culture Commission in Lebanon, Jan. 16, 2016] Abu Al-Einein also glorified a terrorist who killed 1 and wounded 11 as “Martyr”: “We loved you, while you sowed life for all Palestinians” [Sultan Abu Al-Einein’s Facebook page, Oct. 19, 2015] He has openly declared his total support for the terror campaign, saying that he “supports, with all his might, the uprising and intifada… aimed at defending the Al-Aqsa Mosque” from “defilement” and “Judaization.” [Falestinona, Oct. 14, 2015]

 

Abbas Zaki, Fatah Central Committee member and advisor to Mahmoud Abbas, promotes terror

Abbas Zaki is a member of the Fatah Central Committee. He is close to Mahmoud Abbas and has travelled internationally as Abbas’ personal emissary. Zaki stated that the murderers of four Israelis are “giants and leaders” and went on to say that “whoever succeeded in killing, this is a big thing.” He added that such a terrorist should have “an institution named after him, and a statue [made] of him.”

 

Succeed in killing is big thing

Whoever succeeded in killing [Jews], this is a big thing

[Official PA TV, Oct. 31, 2015] 

 

Mahmoud Al-Aloul – member of Fatah Central Committee and Commissioner for Mobilization and Organization encourages terror  

Fatah official Al-Aloul encouraged Palestinian youth to “make the country a hell for the enemies”

Shortly after the murders of 4 Israeli civilians in two separate attacks on Oct. 1 and 3, 2015, Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul addressed Palestinian youth on his Facebook page, encouraging them to “rise up against the enemies”:

 

Mahmoud Al-Aloul:  “#Resist_boycott_rise up (literally “make intifada”)

More resistance and escalation against the occupation everywhere. Let us make the country a hell for the enemies… all the members of the Shabiba (i.e., Fatah youth and student movement) are potential Martyrs for the beloved Palestine.”

[Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul’s Facebook page, Oct. 5, 2015]

 

Al-Aloul called to “continue attacks” against Israelis

In another post, Al-Aloul stated that “whoever loves the Shahada (Martyrdom death) is not afraid of the settler herds.” He ended with the following words of encouragement: “and #let’s_continue_the_attacks.” [Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul’s Facebook page, Oct. 5, 2015]

 

Fatah glorifies and honors the terrorists of the current terror campaign

 

Fatah leader sponsors sporting event after murderer of two

As an unequivocal expression of support for murder, Fatah continues to honor and glorify the killers of the current terror campaign. For example, Jibril Rajoub, Central Committee member mentioned above, who is also Head of the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs and Chairman of the PA Olympic Committee, sponsored a table tennis tournament, named after murderer Muhannad Halabi, who murdered two people and stabbed a woman and her baby in October 2015. Rajoub mentioned Halabi by name when he described the “heroes” who constitute “a crown on the head of every Palestinian.” [Official PA TV, Jan. 2, 2016]

Mahmoud Abbas denies murdering Israelis is wrong. Terror campaign is a “popular peaceful uprising” 

Finally, Abbas himself has not been a moderating influence. Abbas has not condemned even one terror attack during this entire violent period, and worse still, he has justified these attacks by claiming they were part of a “popular peaceful uprising”: “We want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is. That’s what this is.” [Official PA TV, Nov. 16, 2015] Abbas made this statement after Palestinians had carried out 65 stabbing attacks, 8 shooting attacks, and 8 car ramming attacks, in which a total of 14 Israelis were murdered and 167 were wounded.

 

Not even when US Vice President Joe Biden urged Abbas to condemn a terror attack in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, where a Palestinian stabbed a US citizen to death and injured 11 Israelis, did Abbas comply. He “offered condolences,” but never condemned the attack. [The Jerusalem Post, March 10, 2016]

 

Abbas’ frequent referral to all the terror attacks as part of the Palestinian “peaceful” or “nonviolent” “uprising” may have been what has led the Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs and other international spectators to wrongly conclude that Abbas is against the current wave of terror attacks against Israelis.

 

PLO leader: Murdering Israeli civilians is “national duty”

A statement which expresses the Fatah and PLO leaders’ attitude towards the current terror campaign was made by PLO Executive Committee member Mahmoud Ismail, who defined the killing of Israelis as a “national duty.” In a conversation about the murder of a young Israeli couple, which took place while their 4 children watched from the back seat of the car, Ismail said the following: “There is no need to return to the argument and dispute about who carried out the operation (i.e., the killing)… There is no need to announce it and boast of having done it. One fulfills his national duty voluntarily, as best as one can.” [Official PA TV, Oct. 6, 2015]

 

One fulfills his national duty voluntarily - Killing Jews

One fulfills his national duty voluntarily, as best as one can

 

This attitude is representative of the PA’s and Fatah’s approach throughout this terror campaign. The Fatah leadership has not condemned the terror, but has presented it as patriotic and a legitimate part of the Palestinian “struggle” and “resistance.” Killing soldiers or civilians anywhere is presented as a “national duty.”

 

Fatah proud of its leading role in the current terror campaign

Finally, Fatah is proud of its leading role in the current terror campaign. Several Fatah leaders have specifically mentioned Fatah’s central role in the terror campaign.

 

Fayez Abu Aita, Fatah Spokesman, stated that Mahmoud Abbas is leading the “blessed popular uprising”: 

 

Fatah Spokesman Fayez Abu Aita… emphasized in a press statement published by the [Fatah] Information and Culture Commission today [Jan. 7, 2016]… that it is necessary to take into account the difficult and sensitive situation our people is experiencing, as it fights the battle for independence and an [independent] state, led by President Mahmoud Abbas, through the blessed popular uprising and the unlimited political confrontation with the occupation in the UN corridors and the International Criminal Court.'” [WAFA (the official Palestinian news agency), Jan. 7, 2016]

 

Amal Hamad, Fatah Central Committee member: 

 

“I say that if one has a responsible national feeling, on is supposed to thank Fatah for its resolve, and for its ability to say ‘No!’ to the Americans, ‘No!’ to the occupation, ‘No!’ to all regional, Arab and international pressures… We are still leading the popular uprising, with true resistance, 80 percent of the Martyrs (Shahids) are Fatah people. If so, the movement is deeply rooted…” [Official PA TV, March 1, 2016]

 

Jamal Muhaisen, Fatah Central Committee member, Commissioner for Diaspora Branches and PLO Central Council member: 

 

“They [Hamas] talk about resistance. What is happening today? Today there is a struggle on two fronts. There is the struggle in the field, by the popular resistance, and I say that 90 percent of the Martyrs (Shahids) are from Fatah. I say to Abu Marzouq (a senior member of Hamas -Ed.) that 90 percent of the Martyrs are from Fatah, and I would like Hamas to be present in the popular uprising in the field, matching its size. Hamas’ presence does not match its size.” [Official PA TV, Feb. 14, 2016]

 

Abbas Zaki, Fatah Central Committee member and Commissioner of Arab and China Relations: 

 

The Fatah movement draws its strength from its people, and noted that its fingerprints are clearly evident in the popular Palestinian uprising… Fatah is carrying the flag of victory, through the national measures and that the fact that it is currently leading the mass uprising is the best proof of this.” [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 30, 2015]

 

  1. Summary and conclusions

 

In summary, it is imperative that this hate speech, violence promotion and terror glorification be condemned – by you, the Danish government, and other members of the international community who wish to see peace in the Middle East. Denmark and other supporters of the PA have a unique position as financial donors to the PA to demand that the PA, including Fatah as the ruling party in government, honors the commitments it has made in the past: to stop incitement and to renounce terror. The PA’s donors have tremendous potential influence to demand a change in the messages and policies that PA and Fatah leaders transmit to Palestinians.

 

When Rajoub, the Deputy-Secretary of Fatah’s Central Committee, which is headed by Mahmoud Abbas, refers to the the [sic] murder of Israelis as “individual acts of heroism” and publicly says on official Palestinian Authority TV that the Fatah Central Committee supports them, it must not be ignored by the international community.

 

In your answer to MP Søren Espersen, you indicated that if “Fatah, the PLO, the PA, or the Palestinian government” were actively supporting the terror campaign, the Danish government would reassess its attitude toward them.

 

The documentation in this letter and report shows that the Danish government must “reconsider its assessment” of Fatah, the PA, and Mahmoud Abbas, and take the necessary steps when dealing with a political governmental body that openly supports terror as Fatah does.

Intro: If you do not Know What Resolution 16/18 is …


Muslim gags Lady Liberty

Intro: If you do not Know What Resolution 16/18 is …

John R. Houk

 

Danny Jeffrey has some great thoughts on UN Resolution 16/18! I am so upset about UN Resolution 16/18 (April 2011 text) that I am willing to go to jail to engage in civil disobedience for limiting my 1st Amendment Rights. When you read the text of the resolution there is the first glance reaction is the language sounds amenable to the U.S. Constitution; the problem is about who frames or defines what is incitement to violence and the use of the Latin word inter alia which means ‘among other things’.

 

Inter alia as a legal definition:

 

Inter alia is a Latin term that means “among other things” It is used to indicate that something is one out of a number of possibilities. For example, “he filed suit against respondents in state court, alleging, inter alia, a breach of contract.”

 

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) agrees to the wording of among other things because Muslims can cry incitement against Islam while hypocritically ignoring the incitement against Christians and Jews that clearly occurs in Muslim nations on a daily basis. Ergo no matter the defense by the U.S. State Department that Resolution 16/18 does not hinder the First Amendment (If you have the time it would be worth it to watch Heritage Foundation seminar criticizing UN Resolution 16/18) is either idiotic ignorance or deceitful propaganda.

 

I am cross posting Danny’s post “IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT RESOLUTION 16/18 IS THEN YOU ARE ASLEEP AND IN DANGER.” I should note that I am not the only blogger appreciating Danny’s thoughts. In Googling for background info the title came up all over the place, so there is a good chance you may have read it already. Even so I am guessing there are still a few folks that haven’t Danny’s post yet. Enjoy and think about what you read.

Squeezing CAIR


CAIR - Hamas

John R. Houk

© July 1, 2011

 

Ever since the book exposé Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America was published a law enforcement magnifying glass should have been placed on the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The book Muslim Mafia is based on a private sting operation in which Chris Gaubatz pretended to be a Muslim and became embedded in undercover mode to gain the trust of CAIR officials. Chris Gaubatz was successful in his mission for thousands of documents were apprehended which in turn was turned into the book by the authors Paul David Gaubatz and Paul Sperry.

 

The book Muslim Mafia was so upsetting to exposing CAIR that the American-Islamic group has tried to use Legal Jihad to discredit the Gaubatz-Sperry author team. Coupling the exposé with the fact that CAIR was named as an unindicted coconspirator in the HLF trial in Dallas that convicted those Muslim so-called charity leaders for funneling money to Islamic terrorist organization Hamas, that even the FBI could no longer ignore anti-American activities. The FBI cut CAIR off as a consultant on how to deal with American-Muslims in a way that respects the Islamic faith.

 

Now the IRS has stripped CAIR of its tax deductable status because of the failure to fully report from whence donations came. The failure of CAIR to reveal their legally mandated duty to report all donations as a tax exempt NGO has led Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) to call upon the IRS to determine if CAIR has received foreign money in violation of the law.

 

In the 1930s, mobster Al Capone had everyone in his pocketbook making him nearly untouchable. The law enforcement that was not corrupt had a near impossible time in nailing Capone for a crime. Then finally got a bright idea: If Capone could not be nailed for his mobster empire of illegal enterprises, then let’s get him for tax evasion.

 

The IRS could actually be the law enforcement agency that finally exposes CAIR. The IRS seems to have its own rule of law which I have usually railed against. However this time, if the IRS successfully exposes CAIR’s dark anti-American activities then the IRS will be a hero agency – at least for the moment.

America, Saudi Arabia & Islamic Terrorists


Saudi Allies of Terrorism

John R. Houk

© December 7, 2010

 

Okay, again I have mixed emotions of a WikiLeaks release. Apparently on Sunday WikiLeaks released another gift that keeps on giving embarrassment to the U.S. State Department. The Part of the WikiLeaks dump on Sunday I am writing about is a post from Arutz Sheva 7/Israel National News which reports that Saudi private citizens make up the bulk of Islamic terrorist money supply lines. The Islamic terrorists in the article are Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Hamas followed by the words “and others”. America is publicly at war with al Qaeda and the Taliban. I guess I should qualify “publicly at war.” The American government and American Military under the direction of the Obama Administration are fighting enhanced foreign insurgents who have declared an unrecognized war on America. America should be publicly at war with LeT and Hamas. Undoubtedly because of diplomatic protocols that probably would interfere with the concept of political asset interests in foreign affairs of State, LeT and Hamas are given a pass other than public condemnation.

 

LeT is associated with Pakistan and Hamas is associated with Arabs seeking to be called Palestinians.

 

Diplomatically Pakistan is an ally of America in the Global War on Terror being fought in Afghanistan. There is some doubt within that the internal politics of Pakistan is committed to destroying Islamic terrorism and is rather secretly supportive of Islamic terrorism. In essence Pakistan is a player in which its national interest is to make friends with whatever nation can bolster its military position to offset Islamic Pakistan’s worst enemy; i.e. India. India is officially a nation of Democratic laws with equality to all religions.

 

The reality is Indian Sub-continent has two main religions: Hindu and Islam. Hinduism is and always has been (in recorded time) an evolving Hindu metamorphosis. I say metamorphosis because the Hinduism of today will not look like the Hinduism of nearly seven thousand years ago. Islam came to India in bloodthirsty Muslim invasions in the 700’s AD. Muslims considered Hindus the worst kind of idolaters because of the polytheistic nature of Hinduism. The Muslim conquering of Hindus and Buddhists was probably the worst genocide of innocent people of its day. The slaughter only slowed down because a bright Muslim leader finally caught the idea that if all the Hindus died, there would people to exploit in the Dhimma agenda of the jizya of non-Muslims.

 

Pakistan’s atrocious human rights record toward non-Muslims and its secret support for Islamic terrorists the Taliban and LeT is not going to get a public reprimand from the USA. Pakistan is playing the USA; however the USA is also in this diplomatic game. Undoubtedly as a slight show that America could abandon Pakistan if the pro-Islamist elements of the government gained the controlling power in the Islamic Republic; resulted in the Bush Administration talking about potential cooperation with India. There is some unstable geopolitical gamesmanship going on between Pakistan, America, India, Russia and China.

 

Hamas gets a pass because the Obama Administration is devoted on taking Israel’s land of Judea and Samaria (known diplomatically as the West Bank) away from Israel to set up a sovereign nation of Arabs that call themselves Palestinian. The groups being asked to govern such a State are currently split between the old PLO (managers of the Palestinian Authority) and Hamas. Both the PLO and Hamas have official charters calling for the utter destruction of Israel and of its Jewish citizens replacing it with a Muslim State. The only difference between Hamas and the PLO is that the PLO leans more toward secularism but is corrupt while Hamas is a downright evil Islamic entity devoted whole heartedly and up front to Israel’s destruction and a Jewish genocide while being connected to the international agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood of a Muslim Empire governed by a Caliphate.

 

Regardless of this obvious glare of intolerant Islam Democrats and a large number of Republicans (including the Bush Administration) are turning the screws for Israel to accept a Jew-Hating Palestinian State to exist. Because of the American government’s National Agenda to create a Palestinian State while setting up Israel for its downfall, places America in a position of difficulty in confronting the terrorism of Hamas.

 

With all this in mind, the WikiLeaks dump of Sunday demonstrates a further diplomatic problem the USA has; viz. that Saudi Arabia has wealthy private citizens openly supporting Islamic terrorists to bring down the world’s most successful political experiment in representative Republic democracy – the United States of America.

 

WikiLeaks demonstrate that Saudi Arabia is either clueless on how to stop Islamic terrorist support from its citizens or is pretending stupidity to keep getting American military hardware as well as an American military umbrella from Iranian regional hegemonic designs.

 

Will America’s leaders ever wise up to the fact that handling dynamite is different from handling a firecracker? One is seriously deadly and the other may only result in minor burns. Islamic anti-Americanism is deadly dynamite waiting to explode. America must neutralize the dynamite or face potential future consequences.
