More Justin O. Smith on Radical Islam in Tennessee

Justin O. Smith posted four more comments at my NCCR blog which cross posted this article: “Justin O. Smith on Radical Islam Supporters in Tennessee”. The four comments are dated January 10, 2012. Yeah I know, sometimes it takes awhile to get to the comments at all my blogs. Essentially this is some follow-up information on The Rutherford Reader free speech issues over exposing a Murfreesboro Mosque as disseminating radical Islamic ideology. Part of the issue of the radical Mosque’s support is from a prominent Tennessee newspaper like the Tennessean. The Tennessean and some of their newspaper friends and some radical Muslim friends like CAIR and foreign radical Muslin friends such as the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi-Wahhabi ideology.

Dear Mr. John Houk,


Just as a follow up, here is Diane Macedon’s article from FoxNews; that is me in the blue shirt standing in front of the camera.


Justin O. Smith 6-26-10 pro-Reader Protest


It was primarily the last two paragraphs that a few within our community took exception to, but the majority within Murfreesboro seem to be in agreement with the assessment I and others have made in this matter; however, our elected officials are either oblivious to the threat Islam and Sharia Law represent to America or they are ignorant of the facts of the matter or they simply just do not care.


The battle is uphill when your elected officials refuse to properly acknowledge the concerns of its people. A similar battle was fought and won just prior to the beginning of the Murfreesboro controversy in Franklin, TN, and Thank God for Mrs. Laurie Cardoza-Moore, a member of the Jewish faith, who led the way; Franklin won because their elected officials heard and listened and acted in accordance with the wishes of their constituency…’We the People’!


Here are those controversial paragraphs…


The Koran and Islam promote an ideology that is incompatible with ideas based on freedom and our U.S. Constitution. Wherever a seedling of Islam takes root, it soon actively works to subvert and bend its host nation’s government towards Sharia Law. We must be careful when considering electing Muslims to positions in the U.S. government. The effects of allowing Muslims to enter any democratic government can readily be seen in France, the U.K., Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the former Yugoslavia, and Lebanon; most Muslims believe that the will of Allah supplants all, thus many of these nations now feel compelled to enact legislation to curtail Sharia Law encroachments. The U.K., however, is currently appeasing its radical Muslim population and accepting Sharia Law in its lower courts; their nation will not last long on this course.


Muslim immigrants may not enter the U.S. intent on acts of terrorism, but they all enter as good Muslims supporting the submission of the world to Allah. Also, it is good for one to remember that one of the Koran’s most famous verses states, in essence, “War is deceit”. While I respect the works of moderate Muslims such as Irshad Manji (‘Faith Without Fear’) and Tarek Fatah (‘Chasing A Mirage’), I whole-heartedly, unfortunately, must assert that the U.S. must halt all future Muslim immigration, until Muslims acquiesce to living within the legal structures of their host nations rather than striving to restructure nations under an evil, de-humanizing, backward and defiling 12th century ideology, even should this take the next 50 years. In past years, we would not have opened our borders to Maoists, Stalinists or Nazis, therefore, why is the Obama Administration not closing our borders to these Islamic fascists?

For Your discerning eye and the scrutiny of your readers, Mr. Houk…!/note.php?note_id=194100087289236


Printed in ‘The Daily News Journal’

Mar 11, 2011


There exists no reason to introduce Sharia into the U.S. other than the Islamists and Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) demand(s) it as a method to undermine the American culture and hurry the demise of our nation.


Muslim radicals can advocate Sharia all day long under the First Amendment, but Sharia can never be implemented within the U.S.; Sharia law represents a parallel, subversive ideology that demands the destruction of our own ideology. I have regularly seen Muslim clerics hold up a Qur’an and say, “This is our Constitution.”


Islam and Sharia law simply enforce religious edicts and fatwas from imams, while U.S. laws were set forth in advance to serve or punish through only legal enactments conforming to our U.S. Constitution. We all live by rules rather than by either arbitrary edicts or anarchy. Article VI of the U.S. Constitution states in part: “… this Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof … under the authority of the United States shall be the Supreme Law of the Land.” The advocates for the Islamization of America cannot seem to grasp these facts.


Many Americans and proponents of mosque expansions and Sharia law do not recognize the underlying reality of terrorist sympathy within Muslim communities. They believe the U.S. can moderate radical Muslims by talking to them and convincing the Islamists to live in harmony with the Western cultures. This will never happen, until a worldwide Muslim majority reforms Islam itself, and Muslims reject the Sura and Hadith and the historically incorporated and embedded radical and politicized doctrines within Islam — much the same has already been suggested by Raheel Raza from the Islamic Canadian Congress and other noted Islamic scholars.


These same Sharia proponents are also aligned with ACLU groups that seek the destruction of the Judeo-Christian principles that created this nation. They would have us passively accept the Islamization of America, Islamic front groups that finance terror and the infiltration of Islamic terrorists; they would have us suffer the terrible consequences that accompany these preventable conditions. The anti-American, pro-Sharia element in America prostitute the law in the service of their ideology (CAIR vs State of Oklahoma/threatening Tennessee lawsuit), as they cripple the U.S. in the name of rights for terrorists and all who would destroy the U.S. if they could!


Anyone currently aligned against Murfreesboro state Sen. Bill Ketron’s Anti-Sharia legislation is standing on the wrong side of history regarding the Islamization of America and Shariah law. In the world of the critics of Ketron’s legislation, every deviation of the real world from the tidiness of their anti-American sentiments is considered to be someone else’s fault; if a terrorist did not have a happy childhood, then that becomes a reason to release him back in the Middle East, so he can return immediately to killing U.S. soldiers. If ever we needed guardians of liberty … if ever there was a time to stand upright and firm for American values and the Founding Father’s principles, the time is now. God Bless America and God Bless Our Republic!

Muslims’ First Amendment Rights Are Protected

Justin O. Smith, regular columnist for the Rutherford Reader and resident of Murfreesboro, TN., writes in response to an interview with Saleh Sbenaty, an MTSU engineering professor in the DNJ (the sister paper to the Tennessean). Mr. Sbenaty complains that his first amendment rights are being violated because people are misinformed about Islam. Mr. Smith doesn’t seem misinformed to me.


The Qur’an states that a Muslim’s first loyalty is to the “umma” (worldwide Islamic community) and overrides any civic obligations to the “infidels”, non-Muslims. This explains why few Muslims speak up against the extremists among them; for every Zak Mohyuddin, an engineer, who calls America home and lives here honorably, there is a Nidal Hassan willing to kill in the name of Allah. Let us not forget, also, that one of al Qaeda’s top leaders, Ayman Zawahiri is a doctor.


No one is infringing on the Murfreesboro Muslims’ First Amendment rights. There is no question of their right to worship Allah through Islam; but do they have the right to expand if that expansion falls under auspices advocating Sharia Law or Wahhabi ideology, as it stands in direct contravention of our U.S. Constitution?


Too many Muslim immigrants are arriving here from nations sponsoring terrorism, such as Somalia, Pakistan and Yemen. Their views on the principles of freedom are vastly different from your average American’s view or even third generation American Muslims’ views, and many try to advance and propagate Sharia Law upon their arrival. Rather than assimilate and teach their children about America, its principles of freedom and the rich history surrounding its inception, they steep them in Sharia and Wahhabi propaganda; the proof is readily apparent in literature at the Dar el-Hijrah Mosque (which housed three 9/11 terrorists) in Falls Church, VA and numerous others; the Farouq Mosque was used to plot and stage the World Trade Center bombing; and the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR have been working against U.S. interests from within the U.S. since 1962.


For too long I have watched as Sharia Law was implemented across Europe in France, Great Britain, the Netherlands and numerous other nations. The destabilizing results of radical fascist Islamic machinations can readily be viewed through the historical context of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Lebanon which are simply a few among many nations very nearly destroyed, due to these radical jihadists returning from battle with the Soviets in Afghanistan. Wherever the Muslim population approaches 30% of the population in any region, local or national, an advocacy for Islamic separatist movements and Sharia Law soon follows. After France withdrew from Lebanon in 1942, a concerted effort to destabilize Lebanon and inundate it with Muslim immigrants was enjoined by Iran and Syria; Lebanon has seen the years 1958 to the present through a veil of blood due to Islamic machinations.


Sharia financing is currently being introduced into our economy through special banks and mortgage loans that utilize these Sharia financing principles, and even our U.S. Treasury is researching the possibility of allowing Sharia financing within its domain. Now the U.S. is witnessing the encroachment of Sharia-like policies across the nation in cities like Chicago, ILL, New York, NY and Dearborn, MI. Just two weeks ago, Police Chief Ron Haddad, from Dearborn and a Muslim, arrested four men for promoting Christianity near a Muslim festival; a court ruled this unconstitutional, but it should never have occurred in America in the first place!


As a young boy, I stood beside my father nearly every Saturday night, with my hand over my heart, as the television signed-off with a waving American flag and the Star Spangled Banner. Most Muslims cannot relate to this, and while I have heard Muslims state that this is their home, I have yet to see them show a love of America; I have, however, seen them burn American flags in NYC and protest in support of the terrorist group Hamas right in the center of Murfreesboro, TN.


Everyone’s First Amendment rights must be protected, which means Muslims too. I do not wish their rights to be infringed upon, however, it is not an infringement of anyone’s rights to call for a temporary halt to all future Muslim immigration, as I did in April. I simply wish to see America’s Muslims grow to love this nation every bit as much as I do and develop a protective instinct towards the U.S. Constitution, that is as strong as the protective feelings I hold for this magnificent document. This conclusion was not lightly reached, and it was not based in hate of Muslims or Islam, but rather from love for America. We simply must give current Islamic immigrants more time to assimilate and be drawn away from the radical sects of Islam. It does not state anywhere in the U.S. Constitution that we must allow unfettered and unrestrained immigration for anyone seeking our shores, especially our enemies. Only by repudiating political correctness does America stand a chance; we must realistically view the world’s sociopolitical reality and withdraw from supposedly more sophisticated ideas that have little or no connection to observable reality.


Liberty is not unbridled will or the freedom to do as one likes; a society which recognizes no checks upon its freedoms soon becomes a society where freedom is in the possession of only a savage few. The Murfreesboro Muslim community does, in fact, have their First Amendment rights, but they do not have the right to expand if that expansion enables any furtherance of Sharia or Wahhabi ideology in the U.S. Their constitutional rights end where mine begin!

Freedom of the Press in Danger


As much as I dislike the ACLU, due to its beginnings as a front organization for the American Communist Party, I do agree with it on some matters pertaining to freedom of speech and the press. In 1921 the ACLU Position Statement stated that there should never be any censorship by any agency at anytime or in any way, printed materials should never be subject to a political censorship and no system of license for distribution should be tolerated.


On May 14, Murfreesboro, TN witnessed the will of corporate tyrants infringe upon the First Amendment rights of Pete and Kaye Doughtie, owners and editors of ‘The Rutherford Reader’. An allegation was made that ‘The Reader’ prints “hate speech” against Islam and Muslims, and the local Krogers, KFC and Distributech acted in concert to bar further distribution of ‘The Reader’ from those locations. Rodney Barton, Distributech Rep., in an obvious rush towards the type of political correctness that will eventually destroy the U.S., is either following someone’s far left agenda or he did not understand what he read.


Pete Doughtie’s numerous warnings, regarding the Islamization of America, Sharia Law encroachments (the harshest form of law currently in existence throughout the world) within the U.S. and the fact that a core of numerous fanatical terrorist groups exists within the politicized Islamic religion (who just happen to want to kill or conquer us all), do not constitute “hate speech”; any Muslims offended by the truth exposed in ‘The Reader’ would be better served by eradicating fascism from the ranks of Islam as they guide it towards real and lasting peace.


Pete’s articles and editorials were hard-hitting and factual, however, they were far removed from the “hate speech’ alleged by Barton and his anonymous complainant; his articles have always been supported by good sources, references and thorough investigations. ‘The Reader’ generally relies on ‘Family Security Matters’, ‘The Wall Street Journal’ and a host of think-tanks such as the Cato Institute, the Hoover Institute, the Hudson Institute, and the Heritage Foundation. While some of Pete’s articles may be deemed offensive by some groups, they were not ever hateful in content nor intent; they were simply warnings from a man deeply concerned for the safety and security of his family and all Americans. Muslims could only been offended by ‘The Reader’s’ articles, if they were secretly cheering for the Islamic fascists and against America or if they were bearing the shame and guilt of their own silence in the face of Islamic fascism’s onslaught on America. Pete and Kaye Doughtie are good God-fearing American patriots, who have never slandered, libeled or defamed anyone. Rodney Barton, Kroger and KFC are complicit with the anonymous complainant in defaming Kaye and Pete in a most ignoble fashion, as this individual or group hides in the shadows.


Why would anyone block distribution of ‘The Rutherford Reader’ and not do the same with ‘The Tennessee Tribune’? If you are going to pull one newspaper, you should pull them all, because they all carry articles of varying political and religious persuasions, and someone will always be offended.


Kroger stocks ‘The Tennessee Tribune’ through Distributech. ‘The Tennessee Tribune’ regularly prints racist anti-white rhetoric and real “hate speech” written by current and former militant Black Panther Party members. For the record, this paper also contains some well written and commendable articles by numerous Tennessee leaders, including Gov. Phil Bredesen. Even though the anti-American racist articles by the Black Panthers grate on every decent bone in my body, they still have the right to be heard in America, as does Pete Doughtie; although Pete definitely does not engage in “hate speech”, even so-called “hate speech” is protected under the First Amend, as long as it does not advocate or call for violence against anyone or the government.


Gannett Press, ‘The Tennessean’ and ‘The Daily News Journal’ should be highly concerned over this developing story. While they are extremely influential throughout the region and wield immense political and economic power, there is always someone more powerful with an agenda of their own to attend. As political winds and the country’s mood changes, perhaps ‘The Daily News Journal’ could one day find itself under a similar assault as ‘The Rutherford Reader’.


There is a great tension in the world, a breaking point is near and monstrous changes are taking place that are shaping a troubling future. Many of these changes are the embodiment of evil, because they seek to eliminate America’s highest principles. Pete and Kaye Doughtie are on the front lines of this battle, as they fight to preserve the freedoms you and I hold so dear. The freedom of speech and the press are the most valuable things in the world, and the truth does not have to be careful or precise, because it can stand alone on its own merits recognizable like a new shiny silver dollar in the sunlight. ‘The Rutherford Reader’ and the Doughtie Family only print the truth, and I must always fight against any corporation, idea, religion or government which seeks to limit or destroy anyone’s freedom of speech!

Tennessean supports Radical Islam –


John R. Houk

© July 13, 2011


There are many States in the USA that have passed recent laws to prevent Islam’s Sharia Law from being a standard in American rule of law as stated in the U.S. Constitution and the State Constitutions in question.


The State of Tennessee’s The Material Support to Designated Entities Act became law on July 1, 2011. ACT for America was more than likely one of the huge reasons there was a large grassroots support for the law. Undoubtedly a visit by Geert Wilders to a mega-Church in Tennessee also aided the cause to pass the law.


The newspaper The Tennessean was in the tank to undermine and derail the law that was aimed at prosecuting donators that gave to further Islamic terrorism. It was probably the influence of The Tennessean that extricated mention of Sharia Law and Jihad from the original legislation.


The Tennessean is a Nashville newspaper that does everything in its power to convince their readers that radical Islamic Mosques known to be in the Nashville area are moderate Muslim Mosques that have cleaned up their act from their past. The reality is The Tennessean willfully calls anti-Sharia/anti-Jihad organizations liars by omitting truth often with outright lies. Yet when a fact check is run on The Tennessean, their writers are the ones that omit or manipulate facts or just plain make them up.


Now I am singling out The Tennessean because they recently ran a smear piece on Brigitte Gabriel trying to portray her as a racist without credibility. Now I quickly scanned that article written by Bob Smietana (his email) and he did not actually use the term “racist” in writing about ACT for America and Brigitte Gabriel; however the entire tone of the article is that ACT and Brigitte are placing all Muslims in one category of Islam is terrorism when the reality is the national ACT organization goes out of its way to differentiate between moderate Muslims and radical Muslims. The national organization even works with moderate Muslims who condemn the harsher tenets of the Quran and Sharia Law.


I have a feeling that some of the ACT Chapters have a “we vs. them” mentality toward Islam in totality; however as I have already written that is not the case with Brigitte Gabriel and ACT for America. Indeed, I am probably in the category of Right Wing Bible thumpers that have a great mistrust of Islam in general whether it is radical or moderate. Let’s face it I am devoted to Jesus Christ the Savior and Son of God who came to save the lost from this world system. All those who condemn Christ Jesus as the Risen Savior that brought Deliverance to those who believe are of an anti-Christ spirit. The Believers in the Risen Savior become a new creation in Christ Jesus the Lord. Thus I have a problem with all faiths that deny Christ as the Son of God co-equal in Divine Attribute with the Father and Holy Spirit.


Most religions that are apart from Christianity do not attack the Godhood of Jesus or the Godhead of the Trinity because their theology is not so much based on a personal God as they are in either pleasing their deity (or deities) or escaping a repetitive cycle of life such as Hinduism and Buddhism. Many of those religions might get a little testy with Christianity sharing their Good News of deliverance but their theology does not specifically have an attack the Christians for what they believe mode.


Islam on the other hand does have attack holy book instructions to attack Christians and Jews until they convert of submit to the authority of Islam in a demeaning way. That is what is called the moderate stuff folks. In original Islamic writings Christians and Jews are to be revered as “People of the Book;” however that reverence only extends to the point of submission to the superiority of Islam.


That is the age old Islam that purists are attempting to reform present day Islam to a return of those glory days. Frankly I am not seeing much of a moderate Islamic condemnation of the early Islamic brutality of forced conversions or dhimmi humiliation. When moderate Muslims are willing to condemn the brutality of their past I might be more willing for a peaceful coexistence.


After all, Christian history after Roman Emperor Constantine has its past of brutality in the name of protecting the Universal Holy Church; however the brutality was not based on the Word of God. The Christian brutality of the past was the false interpretation making people pay violently for rejecting or not converting to Christianity. The plan of the Great Commission as instructed by Jesus Christ is to go into the whole world to share the Good News. If the message is rejected kick the dust of that place off your shoes. If the message is accepted then disciple those who believe so that they know how to live a Christian life. Violence in the name of Christianity was and is an aberration to Scripture.


The Muslim path of historical brutality on the other hand was to invade, humiliate, convert or kill. That path may not be the practice of those the West would term as moderate Muslims; however neither is it condemned. Indeed the alternative of violence is a Quranic and Hadith command.


As this becomes more and more realized I am betting Americans will begin to see the light that revered tenets of Islam are not congruent to the American way of life or the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing the rights of humankind.


I don’t know about you but I get a little ticked off when any media organization tries to make radical Islam look moderate and those attempting to educate Americans about the full nature of Islam as bigoted racists. THAT is the disgusting written reporting of Knoxville’s newspaper The Tennessean.


ACT for America sent out an email correcting writer Bob Smietana about the nature of ACT educating on the precepts of Islam as well as a condemnation of Smietana for exposing Brigitte Gabriel as a pseudonym by publishing her actual name and place of residence. In America that may not sound like a big deal; however those Muslims that follow the purist line of Mohammed-thinking will seek to assassinate her and/or her family for the perceived insult to Islam. Islamic religious tenets call for any insult to Islam to be met with a death sentence.

Newspaper smears Brigitte Gabriel, ACT! for America


Sent by ACT for America

Sent: 7/11/2011 2:48 PM


Newspaper’s smear of ACT! for America laced with lies, fabrications, and distortions.

Please take action below!


Yesterday, The Tennessean newspaper ran a story by Bob Smietana that is so laced with lies, fabrications and distortions we determined we had no choice but to respond to it.

You can read the “yellow journalism” smear piece for yourself here.

Space does not allow us to respond to every fabrication or distortion in the story, so we will focus on the most egregious. At the end of this email we ask you to take action!

Item #1: Distortion

Smietana opens the story with this:


“ACT! for America sums up its mission in four words: “They must be stopped.”


“The “they” in question are Muslims…”


Smietana takes the name of Brigitte Gabriel’s best-selling book to claim that this means ACT! for America’s mission is to “stop” Muslims, bluntly implying that we believe all Muslims are engaged in a “stealthy jihad” and thus that all Muslims must be stopped.


FACT: The subtitle of Brigitte’s book states what “they” is referring to, “Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.”

FACT: ACT! for America does not believe, nor advocate, that all Muslims are engaged in stealth jihad. ACT! for America does not believe, nor advocate, that all Muslims “must be stopped.”

The truth is that ACT! for America works with and helps promote the efforts of reformist Muslims, such as Dr. Tawfik Hamid, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, and others. Dr. Hamid, a guest on the ACT! for America TV show, has praised the work of ACT! for America and provided us a quote for our website. The mission of ACT! for America is to combat the ideology of radical Islam and those who advocate it.


Item #2: Lie

Later in the piece Smietana writes:


“Critics say ACT distorts the nature of Islam and labels law-abiding Muslims as terrorists.”


There is no other way to respond to this than to call this a lie.


FACT: ACT! for America does not “label law-abiding Muslims as terrorists.” This is a classic smear technique used in yellow journalism, to refer to some unnamed “critics” who make some unsubstantiated accusations, in order to smear the organization without Smietana directly saying it himself.


Item #3: Lie

In a lengthy section about Brigitte’s personal life, Smietana writes:


“She married a co-worker named Charles Tudor, a former cameraman for Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Praise the Lord television show.”


This is a lie.


FACT: Brigitte’s husband has never worked for Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Praise the Lord television show.


Item #4: Fabrication

Smietana writes:


“Page Brooks, assistant professor of theology and Islamic studies at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, said ACT! For America confuses radical Islam with the more moderate mainstream version of the faith”


This is intended to reinforce the distortion noted in Item #1 and the lie noted in Item #2.


FACT: If what Brooks was saying was true, why would ACT! for America work with and promote the efforts of reformist Muslims and repeatedly acknowledge that many Muslims do not support jihad and the imposition of sharia law?

On several occasions over the past 18 months we have emailed articles to our national list by reformist Muslims such as Dr. Hamid and Dr. Jasser. It is clear Smietana closely follows what we do, so surely he knows this—so he would know that the statement by Brooks is a fabrication.


As egregious as these lies, fabrications and distortions are, Smietana goes further and exposes Brigitte Gabriel’s real name, names her husband, and identifies the city in which they live. In fact, he uses her actual last name no fewer than six times in the piece, instead of referring to her by her nationally known pseudonym. How was exposing Brigitte like this relevant to this story?

There is a simple reason why Brigitte uses a pseudonym: the board of ACT voted in 2003 to require her to do so in order that she would enjoy some level of protection. This is not a misplaced concern. She has received death threats. We know that al Qaeda has written about Brigitte several different times on its website. Surely Smietana must know that al Qaeda has done this. Surely Smietana must know that Theo van Gogh was killed by a jihadist in the Netherlands.

Today, al Jazeerah picked up a press release posted by CAIR which refers to the story—so now the entire Muslim world that has access to the radical al Jazeerah “media outlet” will know the details about Brigitte’s real name and city of residence.

Surely Smietana must have known something like this would happen. We are thus compelled to ask, is he so driven by an agenda other than journalism that he would expose Brigitte’s name and city deliberately to expose her to danger? Only he knows the answer to that question.

Bob Smietana has written a string of articles over the past many months that have clearly revealed his reporting is, to put it charitably, “factually challenged.” It is difficult not to conclude that Smietana sees his “reporting” on this issue, not as journalism seeking to uncover the truth and report facts, but as a mission to smear, silence and even recklessly endanger those who would dare to speak out against the threat of radical Islam.
