In any earlier post entitled “Polston Suspension Lifted – Prof Zufari Resigns” which exposes that Areej Zufari as a down in the dirt radical Muslim that hates Jews and Christians. I have no knowledge of Marshall Polston’s dedication to the Christian faith. BUT I DO KNOW Mr. Polston was willing to face the wrath of a Christian faith-hating Muslim in Areej Zufari. As the title suggests, Zufari resigned her post as a Professor at Rollins College.

 

Rollins College maintains Zufari left on good terms. She resigned, the college claims, because of hostile threats. That may be true but Zufari’s Islamic terrorist connections should have gotten her FIRED!

 

Now I am learning Muslim terrorist loving Areej Zufari is also a full Professor at Valencia College also located in Florida just as Rollins College. ACT for America has sent out an “ACTION ALERT” asking protestors to demand the Islamist Professor resign from Valencia College as well.

 

I would go a step further and begin protesting to Valencia College that this supporter of Islamic terrorism be fired! Here is Valencia College contact info from its Contact Us webpage:

 

Valencia’s District Office 
1768 Park Center Drive
Orlando, FL 32835

 

Phone 407-582-8033

 

The “Contact Us” page has an online comment section that I suspect one will receive little response from. Yet, a flood of protests (please keep it civil) protesting Areej Zufari’s employ would be noticeable: http://net4.valenciacollege.edu/forms/hr/contact.cfm

 

After doing a little digging I found Valencia College President Sandy Shugart contact info to protest Zufari’s employ:

 

Phone: (407) 582-3400

Email: sshugart@valenciacollege.edu

 

Well that’s my two-cents on protesting directly to Valencia College from outside of Orlando Florida. If you wish to do some phone personal digging here’s the main number: Main Phone Number 407-299-5000

 

ZoomInfo shows that Areej Zufari is a Prof at Valencia College.

 

Here is a ZoomInfo excerpt under the heading Description about Valencia College:

 

Valencia College was founded in 1967 as Valencia Junior College. It became Valencia Community College in 1971 and in 2011 the college changed its name to Valencia College; its president is Sanford C. Shugart, PhD. Twice as many high school graduates in Orange and Osceola counties start college at Valencia than at all Florida state universities combined. One out of four UCF graduates started at Valencia . Since Fall 2011, Valencia College began offering bachelor degree programs. Students on a specific career track can transfer into programs that lead to a bachelor of science in electrical and computer engineering technology, bachelor of science in radiologic and imaging sciences and bachelor of science in cardiopulmonary sciences. Starting in Spring 2017, Valencia College will also offer the bachelor of science in sign language interpretation. …

Christian booted from National Cathedral speaks out


Christine Weick Defends National Cathedral

Christine Weick at National Cathedral 11/14/14

 

Yesterday I joined many bloggers writing about a Christian gal that snuck into the National Cathedral in Washington DC who stage a person protest against Muslims using a Church to perform a Friday Muslim service. I also highlighted the fact that the date chosen by the Muslims (November 14) was the 100th anniversary of the last Ottoman Caliph calling for a Jihad against non-Muslims which led to the Armenian Genocide that spanned 1915 -1919. AND to demonstrated that the date chosen was unlikely a coincidence since the Muslim event in a prominent American Church was sponsored and promoted by Muslim American organizations that concur with Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas in the establishment of a global Caliphate.

 

At the time that I had read about this heroine of a Christian most MSM outlets were not sharing her name and a few Conservative blogs and one guy where I found a decent amount of video feed, provided only her first name – Kristine.

 

Today, largely thanks to WND, I have discovered her name is Christine Weick. Just as Rosa Parks became a name synonymous with the Civil Rights movement and peacefully resisting White Supremacism, so also should Christine Weick’s name become synonymous with Christian Liberty against Multicultural dilution and Islamic Supremacism.

 

Below Leo Hohmann on WND shares the details from Ms. Weick’s perspective which is quite awesome!

Christian booted from National Cathedral speaks out
Tells why she made trip from Tennessee to counter Muslim prayer

service

By LEO HOHMANN

November 15, 2014

WorldNetDaily

 

It was supposed to be a shining moment for proponents of the interfaith movement.

 

The Islamic “jummah,” or Friday call to prayer, would be held on America’s grandest Christian stage – the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

 

It was a bold move that had never been tried. Leaders of the Episcopal cathedral said sending prayers up to Allah from a Christian church would show the world that two religions at odds with each other for centuries could “approach the same God” as one body of believers.

 

The stage was set. The prayer rugs were neatly arranged facing Mecca. The lights shone down on the imam for his opening remarks.

 

Not so fast.

 

Christine Weick, a 50-year-old Michigan woman with flowing blonde hair who lives out of her car, rose from the packed National Cathedral, the hall of halls in terms of religious prominence in America, and moved toward the front of the church.

 

She pointed to the cross hanging overhead.

 

That cross seemed to be the one thing nobody wanted to look at, she told WND Saturday in an exclusive interview.

 

The Muslims had set up their prayer rugs in such a way that their backs were turned on the cross, which they consider an alien religious symbol. Jesus was a prophet but was not the son of God and never died on a Roman cross, according to Muslim teaching. Yet, they found themselves staring at a woman who demanded the cross become the center of attention. She then blurted out the message she had traveled all the way from Tennessee to deliver.

 

“Jesus Christ died on that cross. It is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior,” she said. “We have built enough of your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone?”

 

She immediately heard voices in the crowd yelling for security.

 

“Black coat, white scarf, blonde hair!” yelled one. “We need to get her out of here now!” someone else cried out.

 

“They were yelling for security, and by that point I was already done saying what I came to say,” Weick told WND.

 

She was promptly escorted out of the sanctuary by two men in suits, who handed her off to a police officer.

 

Watch video of Christine Weick get removed from National Cathedral after standing up and proclaiming Jesus Christ during Muslim prayer service:

VIDEO: Christine Weick – Christian woman praying to christ ejected

 

She had instantly become a folk hero of sorts for thousands, if not millions, of Christians who read what happened or watched the video that was posted on the Internet.

 

Now Weick wants everyone to know that she did not get arrested and she is safely back in her SUV, heading back to Tennessee.

 

“It was quite an overwhelming day yesterday,” she said.

 

And while she was lauded for her bravery, she confided she was “literally scared to death” as she waited for the right moment to stand up and proclaim the gospel message.

 

“They never said a word to me. Two guys came up and got me. I remember one large man in a suit taking me by the arm, very strongly but he did not hurt me,” she said.

 

“He just put an arm on me and said, ‘We are walking this way.’ Then comes the police officer, and I’m thinking, ‘OK I’m done.’ I’m still in the sanctuary at this point, so I put out my hands for the officer to arrest me, but he just held my hand and walked me to the back of the church.

 

“He handed me over to a woman officer, who takes me to the front doors of the church. She hands me to another officer, who takes me to another officer in the foyer, who takes me out to the road. Not one of them said a word. I was free to go.”

 

She said she told the last officer who led her to the road to have a good day, to which he gave no response. She returned to her vehicle and soon afterward drove home.

 

Except she doesn’t have a home. She said her husband divorced her last year “over a spiritual conflict,” and her family disowned her because she took a stand against same-sex marriage and other “moral issues.”

 

Weick said she learned of the Muslim prayer service two days before it was scheduled to happen through an article posted on the Drudge Report. The more she thought about it, she felt the Lord was telling her to go to Washington and say something.

 

“My blood began to boil as I read the comments of how this is to be such a wonderful event and how religious tolerance can, for the first time, be shown in our nation’s capital,” she said.

Still, she had nervous doubts about making the 400-mile trip from Kingsport, Tennessee.

 

“That article got my attention. And then I Googled the Washington National Cathedral, and I got more information about the service,” she said.

 

She found out from the cathedral’s website that the event was for “invited guests only.”

 

“That’s when I knew I had to be creative, and so did God,” she said.

 

She wasn’t sure what type of creativity would be required or even if she was doing the right thing as she headed out on the road to D.C. In fact, she almost turned around.

 

A sign of confirmation

 

“I was driving there on my way from Tennessee, and I’ve got a lot of doubts in my mind: Am I going to make a fool of myself? Am I going to be in jail for the weekend?”

 

But as she drove down the highway in the right lane, she passed a strange woman.

 

“There’s this woman stepping out of her vehicle on the side of the road, clapping and giving me two thumbs up, and I’m like, ‘That was the strangest thing,’” she said. “The first thing that went through my mind was, ‘That’s my confirmation right there.’ That’s all I needed, and from that point on I knew this was something I’m going to do; and that was the catapult that moved me to keep going towards Washington.”

 

She said she told only four people where she was going and what she planned to do. She asked for prayer.

 

“I said I need you to pray for me, this is what God has put in my bones to do,” she said. “It didn’t hit me until I got in the cathedral and saw all the people and the cameras sitting on my right, and I’m thinking, ‘This is a big deal. I am going to be put in jail!’”

 

She credits God for getting her into the massive church, which was guarded like Fort Knox. Everyone had to go through a checkpoint to make sure they weren’t armed or posed a threat.

 

“It was a God thing how I got past all that security in the beginning. They never ID’d me, and I had brought my ID with me just in case, and I thought that would be my downfall, being from Michigan, that they would say, ‘What is she doing here?” Weick said. “According to reports, this was a heavy security event. They checked every bag and every person that walked in there. I bet some security people are in big trouble today.”

 

She said she slipped through unnoticed, first by following a security guard and then later by engaging in conversation alongside a woman with press credentials.

 

“I just followed those security officers when they were going from place to place. I just followed them,” she said. “It was almost like they didn’t see me. Like I was invisible.”

 

Hiding in the bathroom

 

Weick got through the security line about 10:15 a.m., more than an hour and a half before the prayer service started. She needed to lie low to avoid detection.

 

She noticed a janitor’s closet was left open near the bathroom and briefly thought about hiding in it. But a fear of being locked in persuaded her against that option.

 

She slipped into the bathroom instead.

 

“When I was in the bathroom hiding out, that’s when it hit me: I think I’m invisible, I really wondered, the way it happened, just strange, just totally strange; and someday I’m going to ask God how that all worked out,” she said.

 

While hiding in the bathroom and waiting for the service to start, she rehearsed over and over what she would say. She prayed constantly, with emphasis on Psalm 27.

 

A woman was washing her hands at the sink as Weick left the stall where she was hiding. The woman had a press tag on her blouse.

 

“I asked her if she knew what time the service was to start and she replied, ‘In a few minutes. Do you know where to go?’ I didn’t.”

 

“Follow me and I will take you to the front,” the woman said.

 

“I walked with her into the main foyer up to the security line. We walked right past the guards and into the sanctuary! I was invisible.”

 

Still, the butterflies fluttered in her stomach.

 

“As she took her seat she was shocked at what she saw. About a hundred people were sitting in chairs around rugs that were placed on the floor. Muslim women, separated from the men, were seated on the rugs. To her right was the news media with their cameras and recording equipment. In front of her were the prayer rugs.

 

“Then it hit me… I had such an angst come over me. Seeing these Muslims sitting on their rugs ready to bow to a god, causing such an abomination in the house of the Lord,” she said.

 

The imam said the call to prayer would begin momentarily and spoke some words in Arabic.

 

Weick felt her heart thumping in her chest.

 

“I prayed… ‘Lord! Tell me when!’ At that moment I saw a figure of Christ on the cross some distance away. I stood up.

 

“I was so nervous; you’ll never know how scared I was,” she said. “All I kept thinking was, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me; that’s my only strength.’ I could not do it through me. But we have an amazing God. He shows his strength in my weakness. That’s my motto.”

 

She started to speak, firmly and loudly but not out of control. What she said was not the same as what she had rehearsed in the bathroom stall.

 

“I did not plan on those exact words coming out. I was going to say it differently. I was planning to say, ‘I serve a risen Savior, and Muhammad is dead.’ But I saw the cross and it just popped out of my mouth. I was not going to say it that way. I rehearsed it the other way over and over in the bathroom, because my biggest fear was making a fool of myself; but it didn’t happen that way.”

 

Even if she had failed and made herself a fool, it could not be more painful than what she has already gone through over the past year, she said.

 

“I took a very strong stand on something last year. My husband divorced me over it. It broke my heart. I have a lot of heartache back home, a lot of hurt,” she said. “And I felt the Lord telling me, ‘You are going to go from place to place for me.’”

 

While she lives out of her car, she doesn’t consider herself homeless.

 

“Don’t be sorry for me. I have a very nice SUV. I go out to eat, I have a bank account,” she told WND. “I am just too Dutch to pay 60 or 70 bucks for a hotel every night when I can spend my nights in my car. And I travel every night from place to place, and that is what I was doing when I saw the story in the Drudge Report.”

 

Not a hero

 

WND’s first story on the prayer service drew hundreds of comments from readers. Many lauded the lone, unidentified woman who stood up and rebuked what they saw as a worship service to a false god inside a prominent American church.

 

Among the comments:

 

·         “They shielded their eyes from the Christian cross, but could not shield their ears from the truthful words of this one brave woman.”

 

·         “We should all pray to have the courage this woman displayed. The world needs it. Our nation desperately needs it. Jesus Christ IS Lord.”

 

·         “I would speculate that the brave woman who proclaimed the Gospel was the only Christian present– and they threw her out,” commented a reader who quoted from John 16:2: “They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God.”

 

·         “Bless this woman! Jesus Christ is the Messiah and Salvation for all that believe. Acts 4:12 automatically comes to mind. Islam and Christianity are opposed to each other, no matter what any Pope, Priest and Cardinal says. You cannot deny the Son and have the Father and Islam denies Jesus is the Son.”

 

But Weick said she did nothing outside of what God gave her the strength to do, and she doesn’t see herself as any hero of the faith. The weakest of Christians could easily do the same thing, she said.

 

“That’s why I posted on Facebook this morning. I was like, ‘Come on Christian soldiers we need to fight, and we need to fight using the gospel, the Word of God,’” she said. “There are Muslims everywhere, just walk up to them and say, ‘Jesus Christ is Lord.’ Be brave.

 

“I’m hearing that many Muslims are getting dreams. Maybe all it takes is one to have a dream after being told Jesus Christ is Lord, I don’t know. That is God’s deal. Let Him work it out. We just need to be bold in the Lord and we don’t need to be burning their mosques down, like they burn our churches. We have the gospel and that is our only weapon we need. Jesus is Lord, and we need to proclaim it, but how many times do we do it?”

 

But before Weick became bold, she was humbled.

 

“It was a situation in my life, how God yanked every anchor in my life over the last five years, just everything that would keep a normal woman, a normal mother, at home just got yanked out from under me,” she said. “I have a son and a daughter, and they disowned me. I took a stand against gay marriage and I lost them. That is my heartache. And it hurts me so much. And I wonder what they think now when they see me on the news.”

 

Weick said she doesn’t know what her next “assignment” will be, but she knows now she can tackle almost anything.

 

“I told the Lord last night, ‘OK, you can take me now,’ but I don’t know,” she said. “I think He may have other plans for me, per Jeremiah 29: 11.”

What to do at Radical Islamic Events on U.S. Soil


MB in No. Amer. Chart

 

John R. Houk

CAIR-St Louis is preparing a “media event” in St Louis open only to –

 

The Ramadan Iftar Press Dinner is an annual event hosted by the St. Louis Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-St. Louis). The purpose of this event is get members of the press and local Muslim leaders in the same room once a year. During the program CAIR-St. Louis representatives share unique advice on how to cover Islam, the American Muslim community, build contacts within local Muslim leaders, discuss trends on how the media portrays Islam, pitch insightful story ideas, and share Ramadan through breaking of the fast (iftar) and dinner.

 

 

(This program is only open to members of the press and representatives of the Muslim community) (2ND ANNUAL STL RAMADAN IFTAR PRESS DINNER; CAIR-St Louis Press Release for 7/23/14 Event)

 

One should be suspicious that an event billed as something that covers Islam and builds meaningful relationships and excludes non-Muslims except pro-multiculturalist Mainstream Media (MSM). Here is the reason that red flag suspicion should be waving as in red alert.

 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR is a radical Islamic organization with ties to the Jew-hating terrorist organization Hamas and transnational parent Islamist Muslim Brotherhood (aka Ikhwan) in Egypt. The Salafist Muslim doctrines of the Muslim Brotherhood (See Also HERE) very closely akin to the Saudi version of Radical Islam of the Wahhabis.

 

(How’s that for a loaded link backgrounder paragraph?)

 

CAIR and its affiliate local chapters are Radical Muslims pretending to be peaceful Moderate Muslim civil rights activists. These guys support Islamic terrorists by stealth and are promoters of turning the USA into a Sharia dominated nation ending the Rights and Liberty inherent in the U.S. Constitution.

 

CAIR is the best known cog in this machine of deceit formed under the direction of the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR and a number of other Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations sprang up in the USA with one agenda – to infiltrate and transform America away from the Constitutional rights established by our Founding Fathers. Here are some excerpts relating to this Islamic nefarious agenda from a Pamela Geller article I found at Breitbart:

 

The Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and seven other terror-tied groups have announced the formation of the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), which they describe as an umbrella group that will serve as a “representative voice for Muslims as that faith community seeks to enhance its positive impact on society.”

 

What kind of presence is the USCMO going to have on the American political scene? Investor’s Business Daily noted that “USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of ‘institutionalizing policies’ favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.”

 

The coalition is made up, by and large, of the same groups that were named as Muslim Brotherhood proxies and unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history. They are well-funded, and could very well upend the political landscape, much as they have the corrupted academia.

 

Muslim Brotherhood groups forming this new “coalition” include the Muslim American Society (MAS), American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the notorious Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Circle of North American (ICNA), the Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA) and the Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA).

 

The idea of the USCMO is to “allow the larger Muslim community to better participate in our nation’s political process.” The rhetoric is slick and deceptive. These groups work towards norming jihad and sharia in America. Many of the Muslim groups in this newly formed organization, including MAS and ICNA, as well as the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was the parent group of CAIR, were identified as allied organizations of the Muslim Brotherhood in a captured internal Brotherhood document that came to light during the trial of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), an Islamic charity that was shut down for funding Hamas.

 

 

The government memorandum explains that “shortly after Hamas was founded in 1987, as an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood, Govt. Exh. 21-61, the International Muslim Brotherhood ordered the Muslim Brotherhood chapters throughout the world to create Palestine Committees, whose job it was to support Hamas with ‘media, money and men.’” To accomplish this, the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which CAIR later joined. “The mandate of these organizations, per the International Muslim Brotherhood, was to support Hamas, and the HLF’s particular role was to raise money to support Hamas’s organizations inside the Palestinian territories.”

 

The USCMO is the stealth jihad on steroids. MAS and ICNA, as well as the IAP, were listed as among those organizations dedicated to the Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal of “eliminating and destroying the Western Civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over other religions.”

 

It is clear that the USCMO will vehemently oppose Israel and every measure that may ever be proposed or implemented to increase our national security. They will demonize and vilify everyone who speaks the truth about jihad terrorism and calls for genuine reform and honest counter-terror action from Muslim leaders. They will work to stifle and destroy the freedom of speech and to criminalize all criticism of Islam, including counter-terror analysis.

 

And the left, when they’re not aiding and abetting this sinister agenda, will stand by and READ ENTIRETY (COALITION OF U.S. MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD GROUPS FORMS VOTING BLOC/MB POLITICAL PARTY; By PAMELA GELLER; Breitbart – Big Peace; 4/22/14)

 

So if you have not gotten the picture yet. CAIR is a nefarious anti-American and Anti-Constitution organization determined to use stealth measures to undermine our current government system. My only question is: How long will this agenda be stealth, transforming into a Bill Ayers-type violent agenda to undermine the U.S. government and the American way of life?

 

If you are a Christian or a Jew supporting Israel’s right to exist, you will not be welcome to St Louis-CAIR media event to ask the tough questions. If you are a Constitutional Originalist, you will not be welcome at the St Louis-CAIR media event to ask the tough questions. So what should you do?

 

Find like-minded people and protest on a public side-walk exercising your First Amendment Right of Free Speech and Right to peaceable assemble to protest the deception CAIR which more than likely includes the local chapter in St Louis.

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

CAIR Leaders Convicted

 

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) ST. Louis is holding a media event on July 23, 2014 at The Seven Gables Inn in St. Louis, Missouri.  The CAIR St. Louis web page states the following regarding the event.

 

·         The Ramadan Iftar Press Dinner is an annual event hosted by the St. Louis Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-St. Louis). The purpose of this event is get members of the press and local Muslim leaders in the same room once a year. During the program CAIR-St. Louis representatives share unique advice on how to cover Islam, the American Muslim community, build contacts within local Muslim leaders, discuss trends on how the media portrays Islam, pitch insightful story ideas, and share Ramadan through breaking of the fast (iftar) and dinner.

 

·         (This program is only open to members of the press and representatives of the Muslim community.)

 

Here’s why many American’s are concerned about CAIR’s history and agenda:

 

·         Omar Ahmad, Chairman and founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, told a Muslim crowd Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.   At the Islamic Association of Palestine’s third annual convention in Chicago in November 1999, Omar Ahmad gave a speech at a youth session praising suicide bombers who kill themselves for Islam.  Fighting for freedom, fighting for Islam — that is not suicide. They kill themselves for Islam, he said.

 

·         Nihad Awad, CAIR Executive Director, said I am in support of the Hamas movement.

 

·         Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch, told a crowd at a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas in 2013 If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.

 

·         CAIR pressured the FBI in June 2013 to stop their Most Wanted advertising campaign which helped the FBI gain information regarding the whereabouts of dangerous terrorists.  The list of CAIR officials who have made apologetic comments in the public regarding terrorists is quite extensive.

 

·         The Council on American Islamic Relations is vigorously fighting bills in twenty state legislatures that would prohibit courts from considering provisions of foreign laws including Sharia if they are inconsistent with the United States and state constitutions.  Sharia law is antithetical to the rights and liberties afforded under the United States Constitution.

 

·         Ghassan Elashi, founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, in 2009 received a 65-year prison sentence for funneling over $12 million from the Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation to the jihad terrorist group Hamas, which is responsible for murdering hundreds of Israeli civilians.

 

·         Mousa Abu Marzook, a former CAIR official, was in 1995 designated by the U.S. government in 1995 as a “terrorist and Hamas leader.” He now is a Hamas leader in Syria.

 

·         Randall Royer, CAIR’s former civil rights coordinator, in 2004 began serving a 20-year prison sentence for aiding al-Qaida and the Taliban against American troops in Afghanistan and recruiting for Lashkar e-Taiba, the jihadist group responsible for the 2008 Mumbai jihad massacres.

VIDEO: Ayaan Hirsi Ali on The Kelly File

 

Posted by National Review

Published: Apr 10, 2014

Fox News Article in relation to video: Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali speaks out on Brandeis decision to withdraw degree 4/9/14

 

Megyn Kelly has been taking on CAIR quite valiantly over the “Honor Diaries” documentary. Probably Fox News is the only news network willing to expose CAIR there is a chance you don’t know what I am talking about when I say such a thing as CAIR condemns the documentary the “Honor Diaries” and condemns Megyn Kelly for exposing the Islamic misogynism of the Muslim-American organization with ties to the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas and to the radical Muslim transnational organization the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

Whenever anyone criticizes Islam no matter how valid the criticism, CAIR (and all the Muslim Brotherhood/radical Islamic American affiliates) utilize the guilt trip Islamophobic racist canard against the legitimate critics. CAIR is brilliant in using combinations PC accusative racism and Legal Jihad to get companies, government agencies, schools AND universities to cave to the Islamic Supremacist will of the American-Islamic organization.

 

In the war of words being exchanged between CAIR and Megyn Kelly, Ayaan Hirsi Ali the recent object of CAIR venom was interviewed on the Kelly File. Brandeis University recently withdraw the offer of an honorary degree and a commencement speech from Hirsi Ali because CAIR contacted the University and expressed dismay the school was honoring her. The reason: CAIR pulled the Islamophobe-racist card from its hat of tricks to label Hirsi Ali a Muslim hater.

 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali does have good reason to hate Islam as a religion. Her childhood through adult experiences at the hands of Islam is extremely nefarious. HOWEVER, when an organization like CAIR publically labels a person an Islamophobe hater they are drawing the general equivalence in the American minds to the racism against Black Americans such as Ku Klux Klan agitated violence. Hirsi Ali is NOT agitating for some kind of Islamic-style of relegating humans to second class oppressed citizenship and she is definitely NOT advocating the ethnic cleansing of Muslims as Hitler attempted and as the prophet Mohammed did do in the Arabian Peninsula in his lifetime of pillaging, enslaving, raping and forced conversions or die.

 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is exposing the theological ideology of Islam which suppresses human rights toward non-Muslims, extreme punishment for Muslims breaking Sharia and the general abuse of females from childhood toward adulthood. This is not an expression of hate but of warning of what to expect in a Muslim dominated society. In Hirsi Ali’s case it is a warning based largely on her personal experience growing up as a Muslim in Somalia and the continued Muslim hate expressed toward her for abandoning Islam and telling people why.

 

ACT for America sent out an email that enables you to voice your support for Hirsi Ali and to inform Brandeis University they and CAIR are the true culprits for vilifying one who speaks the truth about Islam. I am posting that email so you can be an activist against this travesty perpetuated by CAIR and joined by Brandeis University. Then below the ACT for America email I am going to piece together a biography about Hirsi Ali which runs truly as an exposé of Islam’s true nature.

“TO BECOME AMERICAN IS TO ACCEPT THE IDEA THAT YOU CAN HAVE A ROBUST DEBATE AND THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE TO DO THAT THAN ON UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES.”

– Ayaan Hirsi Ali

 

This week, Brandeis University disappointingly reversed its decision to grant an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a victim and vocal critic of Islamism and a longtime women’s rights activist. This brave woman has labored tirelessly in defense of the rights of women and girls worldwide – usually at great risk to her own personal safety.

While the entirety of her public comments has always been readily accessible and she, no doubt, had been vetted by the university as had all other honorees, a few recent actions caused Brandeis to reverse itself: a student involved in the Muslim Student Association (MSA) on the campus started a petition on Change.org; a faculty letter opposed to Ms. Hirsi Ali was circulated; and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) began to pressure the university.

(Click HERE to watch Fox News’ Megyn Kelly go toe-to-toe with CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper.)

Brandeis, in a released public statement, said they feel that Ms. Hirsi Ali is a

 

“compelling public figure and advocate for women’s rights” and that they “respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world,” however, they “cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.”

What exactly are Brandeis’s “core values?”

They certainly are not the same core values of the man for which the university is named, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice, Louis Brandeis, who coined the phrase, “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants,” and who was a staunch proponent of the “frank expression of conflicting opinions” as “the greatest promise of wisdom…”

Brandeis University’s recent actions with regard to Ms. Hirsi Ali are shameful. They not only go against free speech protections afforded by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, but they also send a clear message to persecuted and mistreated women and girls all across the world: Your suffering is not worth fighting for, nor is it worth discussing. This message empowers the men that mutilate and mistreat women, and the culture that condones it.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali was right on the mark when she recently noted, “there’s always this fear that if you insult Muslims, there’s going to be some kind of violent repercussion,” adding that Brandeis is “not doing their students any favors, and they’re not doing their Muslim students any favors.”

Over the years, Ms. Hirsi Ali has received numerous death threats for her activism. It is unfortunate that, though those threats have not stifled her voice in defense of freedom and women’s rights, political correctness in the U.S. has managed to do so.

This is a time for Americans to speak up.

Editor JRH: Here is an excerpt of Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s early experience as a Muslim. The context of bio though is to try to be understanding of Hirsi Ali’s displeasure with Islam but criticizes here methods of exposing Islam using Left Wing apologist line that there is a difference between Moderate Islam and Radical Islam. I’ll provide the link so you can read the whole thing but I am just sharing the biographical portion.

________________________

 

 

… A major factor contributing to her notoriety is the uncompromising and seemingly fearless manner in which she speaks her mind, evoking a wide range of reactions: from adulation to loathing among her non-Muslim readers and mostly resentment and anger among Muslims.

 

One of the more unusual aspects of her career, described in detail in Infidel, has been  its political side, which in the highly charged atmosphere of the early twenty-first century has perhaps inevitably had strong overtones reaching well beyond her personal life. …

 

CHILDHOOD AND ADOLESCENCE

 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born in Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1969 as Ayaan Hirsi Magan. Her father, Western-educated Hirsi Magan Isse, a leader of his tribe and of the opposition Salvation Democratic Front, was imprisoned when she was two-years-old. Against her mother’s wishes he insisted that their daughters receive an education. He was also adamantly opposed to female genital mutilation, a tribal practice common in sub-Saharan Africa, but while he was in prison her grandmother had the extremely traumatic procedure performed on five-year-old Ayaan and her younger sister Haweya.

 

A year later her father escaped from prison, and her extended family began a series of moves: to Saudi Arabia (three years), Ethiopia (about a year), and Kenya (twelve years, with an interlude of several months in Somalia). Her father lived with the family at the beginning and the end of this period, but much of the time he was away.

 

Throughout most of this exile Hirsi Ali experienced the strict Saudi form of Islam. She and her sister attended girls’ schools. She also studied the Quran under male tutors at home or in outside classes. One tutor was sent away when she and her sister refused to give the book their attention, but he later returned and attacked her, beating her and hitting her head against a wall, causing a skull fracture that she believes nearly killed her.

 

Much later Hirsi Ali fell in with a youth group espousing the views of Egyptian writers Hasan al-Banna (founder of the Muslim Brotherhood) and Sayyid Qutb (now often called the father of radical Islam). She was inspired and enthralled with their ideas about “true Islam.” From the beginning, however, she experienced doubts, especially when the subject was the different roles of men and women. She began to find the rhetoric predictable and less inspiring, and the teachings inconsistent. Still, at nineteen she strongly approved of Ayatollah Khomeini’s fatwa of February 14, 1989, against Salman Rushdie, thinking that if he had insulted the Prophet he deserved to die.

 

All along, her adolescence was further complicated by a series of threatening attractions to males–her brother’s friends and her religious teachers and group leaders. She was especially disturbed when one of these wanted to kiss her while at the same time publicly preaching abstinence. She rejected another promising suitor when he turned out to be an atheist.

 

NEW HOME IN THE NETHERLANDS

 

In 1992 Hirsi Ali’s father promised her in marriage to a distant relative living in Canada. She was to go from Kenya to Canada via Germany, where she would visit relatives. At first she reluctantly went along. But while in Germany on July 24, she escaped the arranged marriage on an impulse by taking a train to the Netherlands, doing so under the ruse of visiting another relative. She sought and was granted political asylum there and received a residence permit. To keep her family from finding her, she gave the surname by which she is now known: Hirsi Ali.

 

But because forced marriage was insufficient grounds for refugee status in the Netherlands, she also claimed she had fled persecution in Somalia. The false information she gave on both these counts would later haunt her, though she confided the facts to those who knew her.

 

Hirsi Ali held various low-level jobs while learning Dutch and studying social work, skills she later used as an independent Somali-Dutch interpreter/translator for a variety of social agencies, including the National Migration Service. Working in this capacity from 1995 to 2001, she was horrified to learn, repeatedly, that Somali cultural practices like wife beating, female genital mutilation, and honor killings existed in the Netherlands.

 

In September 2000 she earned a master’s degree in political science from the distinguished University of Leiden. For the next several months she tried several different jobs without much satisfaction. Then in June 2001 Hirsi Ali was “thrilled” to be offered a job as a fellow at the Wiardi Beckman Foundation, the think tank of the Dutch Labor (social democratic) Party. Her first assignment was to investigate why many Muslim immigrants failed to be integrated into Dutch society and the threat this posed to the country’s welfare state.

 

THE INFIDEL

 

Hirsi Ali was just eight days into her job with the foundation when the events of September 11, 2001, unfolded. She and her colleagues gathered in horror around a television to watch coverage of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks. After seeing Muslim children on television celebrating the tragedy, and checking Osama bin Laden’s justification of those attacks with citations of verses from the Quran and sayings of Muhammad, she became convinced that bin Laden’s claims were true. That is, she began to believe that Islam itself was responsible for those attacks. Moreover, the complacent response of the Dutch and their misunderstanding of Islam profoundly disturbed her.

 

During the following period of transition and introspection, Hirsi Ali’s research with the foundation began to convince her that Dutch multiculturalism, which created separate “pillars” or immigrant communities organized by culture or religion, made immigrants feel like members of a separate group rather than citizens of the nation. It became clear to her that this system let Muslim immigrants practice Muslim traditions–even some that contradicted Dutch law, in a way that most Dutch citizens would never tolerate among themselves. In short, the cultural relativists were endangering their own societies while Muslims, especially Muslim women, became victims of their own cultures.

 

During that year Hirsi Ali began to accept every opportunity to express her opinions in articles and on television. What she had to say about Islam and its treatment of women and about multiculturalism as practiced in Dutch society gained her the approval and admiration of some and the hatred of others. A few in the latter group made threats against her, requiring her to avoid being seen publicly and to travel with bodyguards.

 

In 2002 she read The Atheist Manifesto by Leiden philosopher Herman Philipse, given to her years before by her Dutch boyfriend. It deeply influenced her, giving her strength not only to denounce Islam but to acknowledge her disbelief in God.

 

Later that year Hirsi Ali switched from the Labor Party to the more conservative VVD Party (People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy, also known as the Liberal Party), and was persuaded to run for Parliament on the VVD ticket. The VVD’s primary mission is to staunchly defend the free market, advocating minimal government regulation. It views the government’s chief function as providing security. Its focus was made clear to her early on when an elder of the party quizzed her: “Why do you want to be with us? We’re entrepreneurs. What do you know about business?” She was ready for him, giving a long answer culminating in the sentence, “The oppression of women in Holland is against the philosophy of your party.” Accepted by the VVD, she won her seat. [Editor JRH: Bold emphasis mine – made to highlight a move that American Conservatives would concur.]

 

THE POLITICIAN

 

Hirsi Ali entered the lower house of the Dutch parliament on January 30, 2003. After this she became even more publicly critical of Islam and Islamic culture. In the process of leaving the faith she had come to regard Islam as a monolith–to think of it as unchanged since the time of the Prophet Mohammed… Finally, she had come to believe that wherever Islam is practiced it should be held responsible for any mistreatment of women.

 

The next three-and-a-half years were filled with a series of marked highs and lows. During 2004 she saw the publication in Dutch of her collected essays, lectures, and autobiographical accounts of her experiences as a translator, in which she forcefully expounded her militant atheism and her criticisms of the position of women in Islam. She also collaborated with well-known Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh on a short film she had written called Submission (the translation of the word “Islam”). In it, Quranic verses they saw as especially oppressive to women were written on the bodies of women wearing transparent clothing. As expected, the film, broadcast on Dutch television on August 29, 2004, infuriated the Muslim population and both filmmakers were threatened with death.

 

She had by now already been under the protection of bodyguards for two years, but van Gogh refused any protection. On November 2, 2004, in broad daylight, he was brutally murdered on an Amsterdam street. He was shot and stabbed, the knife left pinning a letter to his chest addressed to Hirsi Ali, threatening her and all other nonbelievers. She immediately went into hiding. The murderer was later apprehended and turned out to be a Moroccan Muslim immigrant. The death of van Gogh led Hirsi Ali into prolonged self-recrimination and perpetual fear for her life.

 

Still, during this same period she was honored by a long string of awards. One, in particular, on April 18, 2005, was her inclusion in Time magazine’s list of the year’s 100 most influential people in the world. The category was “Leaders and Revolutionaries,” and her profile was written by Irshad Manji. Seemingly undaunted, she prepared an English translation of her 2004 book, entitled The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam (2006).

 

She also came under close scrutiny by the Dutch government, ostensibly because of the false statements she had made when she first arrived. Thus on May 16, 2006, her Dutch citizenship was revoked and she resigned from Parliament. But a month later, after a fierce debate in Parliament, her citizenship was reinstated. She decided to retain it, and on the same day accepted an invitation from Christopher DeMuth, president of the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, DC, to become a research fellow there, beginning in September. She moved to the United States along with a team of bodyguards assigned to her by the Dutch government.

 

 

…  But her stay in the United States was abruptly cut short when the Dutch government announced that it would no longer be responsible for her security if she remained here. On October 1, 2007, Hirsi Ali returned to the Netherlands. It seemed to be the government’s intention for her to live there indefinitely under guard in a secret location, but she evidently thought otherwise, fighting publicly for the matter to be resolved to her satisfaction. Clearly she would be satisfied only with full government financing of her security together with complete freedom of her speech and mobility. As recently as November 21 [i.e. 2007], the outcome remained uncertain.

Iran Continues to Persecute Pastor Saeed for his Faith


Saeed Abedini, Pastor

John R. Houk

© November 16, 2013

 

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) sent an email that is headlined as being about born in Iran but a naturalized U.S. Citizen Pastor Saeed Abedini who was essentially arrested for being a Christian while in Iran aiding in the construction of an orphanage. Of course that is not the official reason for his 2012 arrest was originally for proselytizing Christ the Savior the Son of God. Then the proselytizing charge was upgraded to a violation of National Security for leading an underground Church movement in Iran. Since Pastor Saeed’s arrest he has been tortured to deny Christ but has refused to renounce his faith in Jesus Christ.

 

There are several links to ACLJ stories and three of those stories updates of Pastor Saeed. I am focusing on the Pastor Saeed updates that are arranged by the dates 11/15, 11/11 and 11/12. The email is entitled “Critical developments for Saeed”. The word critical got my attention. For me Pastor Saeed is a critical example of how Muslims treat Christians in Muslim dominated lands. Pastor Saeed is an excellent reason for Christians en masse to march on Muslim nation Embassies, in Pastor Saeed’s case to find Iranian diplomatic missions all over the world to let Muslims be aware that the persecution of Christians for the free exercise of their faith is intolerable.

 

There currently is no Iranian Embassy in the USA. This is understandable since Shi’ite Islamofascists overrun the U.S. Embassy in Iran and held Americans hostage for about a year. To be more specific the government of the then new Khomeini regime did absolutely nothing as Iranians violated American sovereign land by virtue of diplomatic conventions and protocol. Here in America a good place to let Iran know that Christians are displeased with Sharia Law inspired persecution of Christians is at the Iranian Mission at the United Nations located in New York City:

We can show that Christians don’t yell such idiocy as death to Muslims or death to Iran, but that we can let it be known that persecution allowed and encoded by law is an unacceptable human rights violation.

Pastor Saeed Denied his Medication

 

By Jordan Sekulow

Nov. 11, 2013 4:41 PM

American Center of Justice and Law

 

This morning Pastor Saeed’s father tried to visit his son at Rajai Shahr prison, located in Karaj, Iran, only to be turned away by prison officials.  Saeed’s father had brought with him some of Saeed’s personal belongings, blankets to keep him warm, and the medication doctors had prescribed Saeed last July to treat the injuries he had sustained while in Evin prison.  Prison officials told the father Saeed could not have any personal belongs, including his medication.

 

As we reported just over a week ago, Iranian officials transferred Saeed from Evin prison in Tehran to Rajai Shahr, where Saeed is now sharing a cell with some of Iran’s most violent criminals – murderers and rapists.

 

Reports state that Rajai Shahr prison was built to house 5,000 inmates, but at present the prison holds roughly 22,000 inmates.  Such overcrowding has led to what many call “deadly and inhuman” conditions within the prison.  Human rights groups report that prisoners in Rajai Shahr do not have access to fresh air, proper nutrition, and that louse and communicable diseases are wide spread.

  

Saeed’s health had been improving with his medication in Evin prison, but with horrendous conditions in Rajai Shahr and the lack of proper medication, Saeed’s health will likely deteriorate quickly.

 

Please join us in prayer for Saeed’s health and protection.  Take action in urging our nation’s leaders to take action to directly engage diplomatically to save Pastor Saeed’s life.  Sign the petition to immediately intervene to #SaveSaeed at BeHeardProject.com.

The Church at Large Has a Responsibility to Pastor Saeed

 

By ACLJ.org

Nov. 12, 2013 3:41 PM

American Center for Law and Justice

(This article was written by Bill Haynes, Sr. Pastor at Grace Baptist Church in Somerset KY.)

 

It is far too easy for American Christians to hear of the imprisonment and brutal treatment of Pastor Saeed Abedini in Iran and just be complacent about it.  After all, we are not being imprisoned for our faith, and shouldn’t Pastor Saeed have known that Iran is a dangerous place to begin with?

 

Attitudes like that will betray a brand of “Christianity” that is shaped more by lifestyle than by worldview, more by culture than by God’s Word. The writer of the book of Hebrews tells us, “Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body” (13:3). Our thoughts and prayers are to be with our brothers and sisters suffering in prison for their faith as if we were right there beside them. Why? Because we are a part of the same body, the Body of Christ. And the Apostle Paul makes it clear that when one part of the body hurts it effects the entire body, even if halfway around the earth (1 Corinthians 12:26).

 

When Peter was imprisoned in the early days of the church, Luke tells us, “So Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God.” (Acts 12:5). Peter was imprisoned for the single fact that he was preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. He was sharing good news that would change the hearts and lives of men and women if they would believe.  But that was seen as a threat to the “security” of the existing authorities, both religious and civil.

 

The church did not merely go into a helpless mode when Peter was kept in prison, but rather they became very active in prayer. Luke says the church “fervently prayed to God” on Peter’s behalf. The church believed that they served a God who is greater than Herod and that their God could deliver Peter if He so willed.

 

That is the call and challenge to the church in the United States and around the world today. We must be in “fervent” prayer on behalf of Pastor Saeed. He is a part of our body. He is our brother in Christ, and if he is hurting then the whole body is to hurt with him and hold him up to our Heavenly Father.

 

Pastor Saeed was working with orphans in Iran. Granted this work was because he is a follower of Jesus and seeking to obey Him, but it was also for the good of the Iranian people, not to undercut them in any way. It is somewhat ironic that the charges against him are for “attempting to undermine the national security of Iran by gathering with fellow Christians in private homes.

 

There are several things that we need to be praying for in this situation.

 

  1. Pray that God will bring about the release of Pastor Saeed. Whether he does this in the miraculous way He did with Peter in Acts 12, or through the efforts of the ACLJ and diplomatic channels, is not the issue. But we have to realize that God’s ways are not our ways and His are always best and right! As Paul says, “Oh, the depths of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways.” (Romans 11:33).

 

  1. Pray that, while imprisoned, Pastor Saeed will bring glory to God through his suffering. The Bible teaches us that we are to seek God’s glory in every place we find ourselves. In extraordinary circumstances like this but also in everyday, even mundane, things like eating and drinking (1st Corinthians 10:31)

 

  1. Pray that God will use Pastor Saeed’s circumstances to see many come to know Jesus Christ as Lord. Paul saw this happen while imprisoned in Rome. Paul tells the church at Philippi that “Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else,” (Philippians 1:12-13) God uses situations that we see as negative to spread the gospel.

 

So perhaps God is going to use this horrible situation for the Abedini family to awaken the church in America to the real persecution and attacks that exist against Christianity in other parts of the world.  Perhaps God is wanting to wake us from our slumber, our comfort, and be challenged to intercede and be involved with other parts of our “body” in very different and very dangerous parts of the world.

 

God was not caught off guard by Pastor Saeed’s circumstances; and God is not helpless to use these for Saeed’s good and for the good of the church, and for His own glory. May we Christians be sensitive to all that God is doing, and may we be obedient to His call to strengthen the body of Christ, the church, to face the spiritual warfare that is very real in our world. And may we stand in His grace, His truth, and wear the spiritual armor that Paul spoke about in Ephesians 6:10-20.

 

Let’s do battle in prayer for Pastor Saeed and the Abedini family and for God’s church around the world.

Senate Unanimously Passes Resolution for American Pastor Saeed’s Release

The U.S. Senate has unanimously passed a bipartisan resolution that directly calls “on the Government of Iran to immediately release Saeed Abedini and all other individuals detained on account of their religious beliefs.”

 

This critical bipartisan Senate resolution was sponsored by Senators Jim Risch (R-ID), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Rand Paul (R-KY), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Roy Blunt (R-MO), John Cornyn (R-TX), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Johanns (R-NE), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Rob Portman (R-OH), and Marco Rubio (R-FL).

 

The Senate resolution concludes:

 

Resolved, That the Senate—

(1) recognizes that freedom of religious belief and practice is a universal human right and a fundamental freedom of every individual, regardless of race, sex, country, creed, or nationality, and should never be arbitrarily abridged by any government;

(2) recognizes that governments have a responsibility to protect the fundamental rights of their citizens; and

(3) calls on the Government of Iran to immediately release Saeed Abedini and all other individuals detained on account of their religious beliefs.

 

This is a critical step forward in increasing pressure on the Iranian government to release Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen.

 

A similar resolution is currently pending in the U.S. House of Representatives after clearing a key procedural hurdle yesterday.  We are hopeful that this resolution will be approved quickly as well.

 

In light of his recent transfer to Rajai Shahr Prison – an extremely deadly prison where prisoner on prisoner violence leads to the murder of many inmates – it is more critical now that ever to voice our support for Pastor Saeed.  The U.S. government must not let this U.S. citizen be forgotten.

 

Iranian authorities may have sent him away to disappear, but we will not be silent.

More than 228,000 Americans have signed a petition to President Obama urging him to reengage this critical issue and help bring this persecuted pastor back home to his family.  Join with us in the critical time by signing the petition at BeHeardProject.com.

54 arrested (so far) outside White House in protests against HHS mandate


Pro-Life Protesters in Front of White House

 

Beware! Do not protest in the name of Jesus in front of the White House with a Democratic Party incumbent President. YOU WILL BE ARRESTED!

 

Check out this headline from LifeSiteNews: 54 arrested (so far) outside White House in protests against HHS mandate

 

This protest was not Leftists decrying the war or homosexuals demanding their abomination get equal treatment or Radical Muslims demanding Sharia Law (cancelled due to uncertainty of participants) be recognized in the USA. All three of those groups use disruption and violence when protesting in front of the White House.

 

The Christian protest involved prayers and signs and maybe a little preaching of the Word of God followed by arrests.
