US Textbooks: Muslims Discovered America

“History from an Islamo-centric perspective” .. even that’s sugar coating it.

“Public Schools Teach the ABCs of Islam,” by Erick Stakelbeck

“..did you know that Muslims discovered America? Or that Jerusalem is an Arab city? That’s just some of the “history” that students in America’s K-12 classrooms have been taught in recent years–with the help of taxpayer money.”

"We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom" – Education or Hate?

We are just days away from the 10th anniversary of the day that changed America.

September 11, 2001, started off bright and beautiful for America, just as any other day. However, before the day really got started good, that bright and beautiful day turned into a very dark day.

Two thousand, eight hundred and nineteen people lost their lives that day. (The official figure as of 9/5/02): 2,819)

As each year passes, as a nation, we risk the very distinct possibility of losing the significance this day had on our nation. If you were not old enough to realize what was happening on that day, and the months that followed, you have a very different understanding of how it changed this nation.

For those who were old enough to realize the reality of what we saw on our televisions, there is no way time can erase the emotions that were experienced when those planes flew into the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and crashed in the Shanksville, Pennsylvania field.

We’ve all heard the quote by poet and philosopher George Santayana:

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

For those who do remember the past, the importance of educating those who do not remember the past is vital! Though they cannot remember, if we do not teach them what happened, we have no hope for the future.

Wayne Bell is someone who understands the importance of educating our children about the reality of what happened that fateful September morning almost ten years ago.

Mr. Bell is the publisher of Really Big Coloring Books, Inc., in St. Louis, Missouri. He has created a unique way to teach older children about the terrorist attacks on our nation with a coloring novel. It’s not just a coloring book, and it is not meant for younger children. Mr. Bell says the coloring novel is for children about the age of 9 to 11-years-old.

“We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom,” is a memorial tribute. Mr. Bell says:

“It is an informational piece to help educate children on events on 9/11. [It is] a simplistic, honest tool.”

Mr. Bell goes on to say that the novel is a “12-hour narrative of the events that happened on the day that forever changed America.” Kids can color pictures of the twin towers, President George W. Bush, Americans mourning the attacks, and other significant images depicting that day.

It’s hard to believe that an educational book could cause so much controversy, especially when it is something so important, but that is indeed what Mr. Bell is facing with his coloring novel.

It should not come as a surprise to anyone that in our day and age where political correctness outweighs the facts so often, there are many people who do not want reality to be presented.

In fact, Dawud Walid, the Michigan representative for CAIR (the Council on American Islamic Relations), calls the novel “disgusting.”

“We Shall Never Forget 9/11: The Kids’ Book of Freedom,” refers to the jihadists as “freedom-hating radical Islamic Muslim extremists.” Mr. Walid is not happy with the fact that almost all of the mentions of Muslims also have the words “terrorist” or “extremist.”  He feels that by only portraying the extremist side of the Muslim religion, a disservice is being done to all Muslim Americans who were impacted by 9-11. Mr. Walid says:

“Little kids who pick up this book can have their perceptions colored by those images … it instills bias in young minds. Muslim mothers lost sons too.”

Mr. Walid also argues that the information and pictures in the novel are incorrect. One instance he says is incorrect is that Osama Bin Laden “wasn’t hiding behind a wife when he was shot.”

However, Mr. Bell disagrees, saying the book is an “honest depiction.” He went on to say:

“The truth is the truth. It’s unfortunate that they were all Muslim and that’s the part people want to erase … I don’t know what else you can call them.”

Mr. Bell appeared on Fox & Friends this morning. The full interview can be seen here:

What America is Obama from? – Not Mine!

Wednesday evening Obama spoke during an Iftar Dinner at the White House celebrating Ramadan. Now some of you may know what the Ramadan is, but there might be a few that don’t know what it is. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which lasts 29 or 30 days.

It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking and sexual intimacy with their partners during daylight hours and is intended to teach Muslims about patience, spirituality, humility and submissiveness to Allah.

During his speech he made a comment that I would call frightening. “Like so many faiths, Islam has always been part of our American family, and Muslim Americans have long contributed to the strength and character of our country, in all walks of life.”

Really? I mean did he just say that? Is he so ignorant of the American history? In my last article I proved that America was founded on Christian Values. So, where does Islam fit in, Obama? Those weren’t Muslims  present when the Pilgrims first landed? There was not anyone signing the Declaration of Independence,  practicing the Islamic faith, and no Muslims signed it.

Were there any Muslims fighting for our freedom from England? There is no mention of any in the history books that tell the history of how America came about. So, Obama I can say without a doubt that not only are you not eligible to be the president of the greatest nation on Earth because your father is Kenyan, but a sitting president or a candidate for president should at least know the history of the United States.

Besides Obama “praising” Islam, where are the Atheist on this? They attack Christians because we have faith in God and Jesus Christ – whom will deliver us from evil, as long as we do God’s will.

Matthew 6:9-13 Our Father in heaven,  Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts,  As we forgive our debtors.  And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen

Muslim activists in the West have been using the tactic of claiming that they worship the same god as the Christians in order to gain legitimacy and acceptance. One does not have to look very far to see the “God” Muslims serve is not like the one true God I serve.

14 centuries ago Mohammed started preaching his new religion in Mecca he was conciliatory and appeasing to Christians. He told them: “We believe in What has been sent down to us and sent down to you, our God is the same as your God.” Surah 29:46. But later, in Medina, after Mohammed gained strength, Allah then tells him to “Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day. Nor acknowledge the religion of truth (Islam), (even if they are) of the people of the Book, until they pay Jizya (tribute tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued“. Surah 9:29

Yes, under the Old Testament law God was cruel with the people – but we are not supposed to live under the Old Testament laws now. Ever since Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of our sins we are to live under the New Testament laws. But nowhere in the Qu’ran do you see Allah making changes for believers to live by.

Atheist activist are upset and trying to remove everything related to the one true God,  but have been quiet about Muslims trying to implement Islamic religion into the United States. At least Christianity is a peaceful religion unlike Islam.

The website Bare Naked Islam had an article about Islam Billboards going up along the New Jersey Turnpike. While most billboards you drive by on the New Jersey Turnpike advertise things like hotels or cars, the billboards getting attention recently advertise a certain religion and are stirring up controversy. The reason I do not like this billboard is the fact that they used the American Flag underneath the word Islam – it is just not right. The only part of American History that Islam is part of, that most Americans will remember is Sept. 11, 2001.

MyFoxNY.com notes in an article about these billboards that drivers on the turnpike aren’t the only ones who will see these billboards. Similar ads are going up on highways in dozens of other states. One thing is for sure Islam is NOT nor was it EVER a part of the history of the United States. Obama, I think instead of going on vacation in a week or two – should stay home and study about the history of America! Folks please remember all these blunders that Obama has had in the past and is still having them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Islam and Violence

Qur'anIf you believe that Islam is the religion of peace, which professes love, equality, and respect for women please read on and see if you hold the same mindset when you finish. Truly knowing and understanding the Qur’an, along with a clear concise knowledge about shariah law, current events, as well as history, are the beginning to truly understanding Islam. You don’t get to hear too much about Islam because people are too afraid to talk out about Muslims for fear of offending them. . But in the Qur’an Jews and Christians are considered the “People of the Book” and they are to be dealt accordingly. The Qur’an states, “Fight them “until they pay with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” (Qur’an 9:29)

Women of Islam are transformed into the 6thcentury, sometimes willingly, with little regard for the historical events that have women have fought for over the course of time so they would have the same rights as men. One day at Costco, not to long ago, here in St. Louis, the one Manchester and Hwy 141, there were two women walking about 10 paces behind the two men they were with, dressed in full berka clothing. It was the sight which resembled an era long since passed, where slaves passively stroll behind their masters, and women, because of the times, were covered pretty much head to toe. Ironically, it is interesting to know that in many Arab countries women live in fear daily, praying they will someday have the same rights women have in this country.

In France a law was passed were women are not allowed to wear the full berka in public. A husband or any male who tries to force his wife to wear the berka will face jail time and fines. Islamic law mandates modesty, however to suggest the berka or even the hijab for that matter, as a definition of modesty is insulting to women everywhere, rather than saying what it really is, which is the need for men to control women.[1] The French have defined new laws in an effort to prevent Islamic ideals, which appear to be spreading like wild fires throughout Europe and other parts of the world. But in an Arab country the contrary occurs: “A Berka Dressed Woman – Islamic Law – A 17-year old girl was sentenced by an Islamic court in the northern state of Zamfara, The girl whose father allegedly forced her to have sex with three men will be flogged for breaking a law against premarital sex. Judge Idris Usman Gusau said the sentence – 180 lashes with a cane – would be carried out on January 27 despite an appeal by the Nigerian government to suspend the punishment. The sentence has prompted an outcry from human rights groups which fear the girl may die.[2]

Ryan Miller has a blog where he discusses his perceptions of Islam. He interviewed a St. Louis woman named Melissa Matos, who is the director of the St. Louis chapter of Council on American-Islamic Relations. In the interview Melissa stated, “When reading the Qur’an, I just didn’t think it could’ve been written by a person. And it made me believe that, ‘Wow, there’s a higher power, and I believe that this higher power chose to explain itself to us through several different prophets. I believed that and I said, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m a Muslim.” [3] It would seem as though Melissa may be a little confused about the author of the Qur’an, among other things. It is really important for people to understand what is written in the Qur’an and how it relates to Islam.

In an articled titled, “Afghan Muslim Throws Wife, Daughter Out of St. Louis Window” the author states, “On October 18, 2008 it was reported “Man throws wife, daughter out window in south St. Louis.”[4] — Police said late Saturday afternoon a 51-year-old man living with his family in a second floor apartment threw his wife and their 13-year-old daughter out the window. The second floor apartment, located across the street from the Bevo Mill restaurant in south St. Louis, is nearly 17-feet above the sidewalk. The woman and her daughter are in stable condition. A witness said the mother seemed almost in shock and the daughter was bleeding profusely. The family is from Afghanistan and police said the father spoke little or no English. Other family members acted as interpreters.”[5] The “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.” — Qur’an 4:34

A manual of Islamic law, certified by Al-Azhar as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2)[6]

It is important to understand Islam is not just a religion, it is way of life. The Qur’an is very clear in the way it defines men and women and their roles, along with anyone who is not Islamic and refuses to convert. Muslim men not only accept the demeaning way women are treated, they may even take part in the abuse, murder, and control of their Muslim brothers and sisters. Islam instills fear and through fear allows control. Woman, abuse, and violence are words that in Islam are almost synonymous with one another. Women are considered chattel property therefore they don’t have any rights, but the violence is not always limited to women. In many Arab countries the belief that every human being has an inherent right to be treated with dignity and respect is non-existent; it is not what they believe. Islam promotes the vilest, demeaning, practices which are so horrifying we just don’t talk about them. But the reality is this: women of Islam undergo horrific ordeals such as female genital mutilation, stoning, beheading, and beatings all of which are protected rights of men according to the Qur’an and supported with shariah law.

Author Julia Duin discusses Muslim women, she states, “Many Muslim women in North America live in a constant state of fear, frightened that they or their children could be deported if they speak out, said Salma Abugideiri, a family counselor from Reston. Often their husbands monitor every move they make, down to whom they talk with on the phone and who they visit.”[7]

In another article the author states, “She was an accomplished, professional woman, in her late thirties, a wife, and a mother. But her husband beat her, terribly, and for a long time. Finally, after much suffering, she worked up the courage to leave him. That’s when; acting on his own, he killed her. I know: All the major Muslim organizations, and the mainstream media, continually say that these deaths are examples of domestic violence. They say that domestic violence is a plague that afflicts women of all cultures and religions and which has nothing to do with Islam. And yet, these very organizations say the exact same thing when young teenagers like Palestina Isa in St Louis, (1989) Aqsa Parvez in Toronto (2007) and Sarah and Amina Said in Dallas, (2008) or when young woman in their twenties like Sandeela Kanwal of Atlanta (2008) are murdered by their fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and male cousins.”[8]

“Don’t kill me, don’t kill me,” she said, according to the man who wanted to remain anonymous. A few minutes later, more than 50 men threw stones. The stoning of 13-year-old Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow in Somalia in October 27, 2008 is another example of what happens under Islam. Aisha was raped and when she reported it she was stoned to death in front of thousands of people who watched and did nothing to help her.[9] Read the article. Decide for yourself; learn about Islam. Does the Qur’an promote violence? Is it that the Koran (in Sura 4:34) permits wife beating? Think about it.

New Book on Radical Islam Declares: ‘This Is the War of Our Generation!’

Dr. Jim Denison Explains to Westerners ‘Why Muslims Still Hate Us, What We Can Do’

DALLAS, July 26, 2011 — On the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, author and educator Jim Denison explains in his new book, “Radical Islam: What You Need to Know,” that the greatest threat our children have ever faced is Muslim extremism. “The battle waged against the West by radical Muslims is the war of our generation,” Denison says. “Killing bin Laden doesn’t end this war.”

James C. Denison, Ph.D., is a cultural apologist, building a bridge between faith and culture by engaging contemporary issues with historical, scientific and biblical truth. He founded the Denison Forum on Truth and Culture (DFTC) in February 2009 and writes for “The Dallas Morning News,” contributing weekly to the “Texas Faith Forum.” He currently serves on the board of the Baylor Health Care System and as chair of the advisory board for Dallas Baptist University. Denison is former senior pastor of Park Cities Baptist Church, a 10,000-member congregation in Dallas.

Dr. Denison’s daily cultural commentary is made available around the world to thousands of subscribers. It offers a faith perspective on topics as varied as medical ethics, the 2012 election, the Casey Anthony trial, gay marriage and many more topics.

“The events of 9/11 are still painfully raw for many,” said Dr. Abraham Sarker, former Muslim and founder and president, Gospel for Muslims, who has worked alongside Denison in his native Bangladesh. “Ten years later, questions remain about the world’s fastest-growing religion and the worldview of its 1.6 billion adherents. Jim Denison’s book provides a timely, insightful interpretation of this movement in our times. His understanding of radical Islam is accurate and balanced. His intellectual brilliance and excellent communication skills engage and support readers in navigating these complex issues.”

“Radical Islam” begins with a look at Osama bin Laden, the Al Qaeda leader killed in May in a U.S. Special Forces raid in Pakistan, and examines the ramifications of bin Laden’s death, including whether it was just. The book goes on to explain what distinguishes radical Islam from the rest of the Muslim world, then addresses basic questions: “Where was God on 9/11?” and “How Do We Win This War?”

“It’s been my privilege to know and befriend Muslims from six continents through respectful dialogue over the past 30 years,” said Denison. “But the fact remains that the threat of radical Islam is even more real and dangerous than it was 10 years ago. Osama bin Laden is dead, but his story isn’t over. His followers are more resolved than ever.

“This book is a primer that tells Westerners what they need to know about this threat, why radical Muslims still hate us and what we can do about it.”

Denison briefly touches on basic Muslim beliefs before focusing on the two tenets that distinguish radical Islam. First, extremists contend the West has been attacking Islam since the Crusades, and therefore Islam must be defended through violent attacks. Second, radical Muslims believe all Westerners are complicit in the ongoing siege of Islam because of their participation in a democratic society, and therefore in terrorist attacks on the West there are no innocent victims.

Faced with this worldview, Denison writes, both Christians and secular Westerners must act. He offers practical ideas on how to handle the threat, including praying for Muslims and supporting Christians from Muslim backgrounds.

“Radical Islam” will be available in August as a trade paperback for $13.99 and distributed by Wescott Marketing. It also will be available as an e-book Aug. 15 through all major e-book sales sites.

The first chapter, which explores bin Laden’s life and whether his death was just, along with an opportunity to subscribe to Dr. Denison’s daily cultural commentary, are available at http://www.dftc.co/presskit.

“Radical Islam” is the first in the “Unlocking the Truth” series of books offering a spiritual perspective on key cultural issues facing America. Denison is also the author of six books, including the most recent, “Wrestling with God: How Can I Love a God I’m Not Sure I Can Trust?” by Tyndale House Publishers.

The Denison Forum on Truth and Culture (DFTC) (http://www.denisonforum.org) exists to engage contemporary culture with moral truth. Founded by Dr. Jim Denison in 2009, the Forum responds to issues through a variety of communications and channels, including a column in “The Dallas Morning News,” daily online cultural commentary, Baylor Health Care System board membership, books, articles and speaking engagements.

Why, Despite Numerous Red Flags, U.S. Must Continue Relationship With Pakistan

The news out of Pakistan over the last several years has been a roller coaster of strategic victories and suspicious losses. News of high-level Al Qaeda captures are interspersed with reports of last-minute tip-offs before raids. The Pakistani government did help capture such notorious figures as Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (9/11 attacks), Khalid bin Attash (U.S.S. Cole attack), and Abu Faraj al-Libi (Al Qaeda’s #3), but sometimes its difficult to tell which side Pakistan is on.

The U.S. knows that members of the Pakistani government and military have ties to Islamic militant groups, many of which the U.S. State Department considers terrorist organizations. Some of these militant groups (created by the Pakistani government itself) are utilized in guerilla warfare along the Pakistan-India border. The Lashkar-e-Tabai (LeT), for example, claimed responsibility for the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks and is widely believed to have been supported by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

The U.S. is also aware that the Tribal Areas of western Pakistan have been used as safe havens for fugitive Taliban fighters and as staging areas for cross-border attacks by Al Qaeda. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton even remarked during a May 2010 interview that members of the Pakistani government likely know where Osama bin Laden was hiding. Thus it was no surprise when the May 2nd kill/capture mission revealed that Osama bin Laden had been living for five years in a compound near Pakistan’s premier military academy. Underscoring the distrust of the Pakistani government were revelations that the U.S. purposefully kept Pakistani intelligence in the dark during the top-secret operation.

Referring to the successful operation as a violation of Pakistani sovereignty, Pakistan quickly condemned the mission to kill/capture the mass murderer. Echoing this sentiment are poll figures recently released by the Pew Research Center showing 63% of Pakistanis “disapprove of the operation that killed bin Laden,” while 69% of Pakistanis view the U.S. as “more of an enemy than a partner.”

As of FY 2010, the U.S. (more enemy than partner) has appropriated or reimbursed more than $18 billion to Pakistan for security operations and economic aid, with nearly $4.5 billion contributed in 2010 alone. All this begs the question: “With so many red flags, why should the U.S. continue its strategic relationship with Pakistan?”

Logistics

At least 60% of the supplies required by coalition forces in Afghanistan are currently moved through Pakistani terrain or airspace. Although the Northern Distribution Network (agreements to cross the borders of certain Asian countries) was created to handle some of the supplies, many of the agreements do not allow for the transport of troops, weapons and other sensitive items. Through various political pressures these routes are ultimately at the discretion of Russia. An agreement between President Medvedev and President Obama last summer supposedly allows for all manner of cargo to move through the region. However, Radio Free Europe reports that as of July 2, 2011, only two flights have taken place. The only other alternative is an overland route through Iran – a contigency only expected to be used when Hell reaches its freezing point.

Stabilization of Afghanistan

A stable government in Afghanistan will require the assistance and cooperation of Pakistan. In the early stages of an independent democracy in Afghanistan, the government will be especially vulnerable to coups and Taliban sympathizers eager to inflitrate the new government (not to mention chaos from narcoterrorists and cartels). Pakistan will be invaluable in providing tactical support during any sudden Afghani uprising, as we saw when Saudi Arabia sent 1000 troops to support the Kingdom of Bahrain in March of this year.

Efficacy of Counterinsurgency Operations

Without the current contributions to the Pakistani government, future counterinsurgency incursions by the U.S. military may be regarded as an act of war. The U.S. took a lot of heat for its unilateral kill/capture mission of Bin Laden. This week the Pakistani government ordered U.S. personnel out of the Shamsi Airbase. Shamsi airfield serves as a critical staging area for immediate drone strikes in the Tribal Areas. While it appears the demand was a ruse to placate the Pakistani populace, U.S. personnel must maintain its presence inside of Pakistan in order to react quickly on actionable intelligence.

Increased Chinese Influence in Pakistan

Although Pakistan regularly faces nationwide power outages and serious economic issues, its government believes that acquiring submarines and nuclear capabilities from China has been the most prudent use of its resources. Such irresponsible deals have allowed China to gain a major economic foothold in Pakistan – some sources claim $20 billion or more in investments. With increasing Chinese domination will come attitudes against free society and the American way of life.

Suppressing Future Islamic Threats

Finally, as one of the largest Muslim populations in the world, Pakistan is essential in preventing and suppressing future Islamic terrorists. A serious concern is that the domestic militancy in Pakistan will become regional insurgency, and regional insurgency will become global terrorism. In this age, the U.S. must maintain a strategic presence in South Central Asia. Maintaining a working security relationship with Pakistan will go a long way toward preventing the next Islamic attack.

Words Really Do Make A Difference

What a difference the choice of wording makes!

On September 14, at Ground Zero, President George W. Bush declared:

“I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!”

Simple words from the heart and soul of a man who was tireless in his fight against terrorism. These words struck a chord so deep within me and inspired me so much that this quote is now framed and hanging on the wall in my home office.

While I did not agree with everything that President Bush did in office it was not hard to see that he was committed to take whatever action necessary to make sure the perpetrators of the most heinous act of terror on American soil were punished. In the midst of the most horrific terror and most overwhelming sorrow our nation has ever faced in modern history, I saw resolve in our nation’s leader.

It is most unfortunate that the same cannot be said for the current administration.

Words are no longer simple and from the heart and soul, they are instead pretentious, flowery,  calculated and pre-determined at an attempt to “soften the blow” of the reality we face as a nation. This administration fails to realize that calling a lion an overgrown cat doesn’t change the ability for destruction that a lion is instilled with.

In 2009, in her first testimony to Congress, newly appointed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sought to diminish the steadfast determination of this nation’s military men and women who were and still are sacrificing their time, blood, sweat, tears and very lives to bring justice that Americans so rightly deserve for the terrorist attacks against us. During her testimony she couldn’t bring herself to breathe the “t” word, opting instead to rename the attack and others like them to “man caused disasters”. I guess it just sounded “cuter to her!  When asked by the German news site Spiegel Online if Islamic  terrorism “suddenly no longer posed a threat” to America, she stated that this administration wanted to move away from the “politics of fear”, opting instead to “be prepared for all risks” that can occur.

It appears as though she missed the mark on that one! This administration is not at all prepared for any risk that comes along! Investing in the stock market is more risky now than it was in the previous administration. In today’s housing market, it is quite risky to buy a house. And one of the biggest risks Americans take today is driving up to the gas pump! The price of gas is rising at a rate of overwhelming proportions! Personally, I would never have called any of these situations terrorism, but it does most definitely resonate with Ms. Napolitano’s newly defined terminology. President Obama and his administration are most certainly causing an abundance of disasters. But isn’t this just running headlong back into the “politics of fear”? They would probably do better if they chose to call it more along the lines of “politics of conspiracy.”

President Bush was very clear that we would make no distinction between the terrorist themselves and the countries and leaders who harbored them. Not so with President Obama, because there is no longer a “War On Terror”, it is now downgraded to an “Overseas Contingency Operation.” What does that even mean?

According to the definition given at dictionary.com, this is the last term in the world that would give me confidence that we have things under control.

con·tin·gen·cy
dependence on chance or on the fulfillment of a condition; uncertainty.

Thesaurus.com gives synonyms for “contingency” as: accident, crisis, crossroads, emergency, event, if it’s cool, incident, juncture, likelihood, occasion, odds, opportunity, pass, pinch, predicament, probability, strait, turning point, uncertainty, zero hour

Plus there are a few more listed.

So, I could essentially rename President Obama’s Operation as “Across The Ocean If It’s Cool Operation”.

Or how about “Transmarine Crossroads Operation”?

Hmmm…. We could go with “On The Other Side Of The Very Large Body Of Water Uncertainty Operation”. No… none of those combination of flowery words seem to give me true confidence that yes, we will take whatever means necessary to see this to an end!The latest member of Obama’s administration to try his hand at flowery rhetoric is Eric Holder. Testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, when asked if enhanced interrogation methods were used in obtaining information that led to the eventual killing of Osama bin Laden, Mr. Holder simply could not bring himself to affirm that yes, our country succeeded in killing the mastermind behind the most horrific terrorist attack on our land! In true fashion that is this administration, he said, there was a “mosaic of sources that led to the identification of people who led” our military to Osama bin Laden. He said that assuming enhanced interrogation methods were used is hypothetical. OK, if you say so, Mr. Holder! Come on now, let’s be real! I guess this is what he had to say, because the sensibilities of the left just cannot handle the truth in this matter! And  my goodness! What if Muslims found  out that we indeed used some form of enhanced persuasion on these enemy combatants!? They might just retaliate…. or something! But wait! We can no longer call them “enemy combatants” !  Let’s instead call them “Bad Person Contenders”. Or we could even say a “patchwork” of things led us to identify the “Revolutionary Serviceman”? Yes! Much better! That will work indeed! It’s all good. Just look it all up at thesaurus.com!

And finally, in an effort to make everyone feel better about events in history, I guess we will now have to reprint all the previous books that use that horribly offensive word “War”. Hitler was bad enough! We don’t want to have to utter that horribly offense “W” word! So now we will just call it “World Kinetic Military Action 2”. And we really must use the written number rather than the Roman Numeral to keep things from appearing so barbaric! Oh hey, look! Now it makes it seem almost like a movie sequel- right?  Things weren’t so bad after all!

See now?  Changing the words to “tone down” the harsh reality makes you feel allllll better now… right??!!

Maybe not as well-known, but certainly as symbolic as Time’s “Man of the Year” covers, Time Magazine’s X covers have marked the historic end of American enemies. Osama Bin Laden is about to join the ranks of the famously X’d out.

Hitler Gets X on Time Magazine CoverIn May of 1945, the first of the X’s was Adolf Hitler shortly after the discovery of his body.

Then in August of that same year, the dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan triggered Time to illustrate the fall of the rising sun. It is assumed that the red in the rising sun symbol was the reason for using black in the X instead of the red that was used in the other covers. It is also the only cover that uses that style of X – more of a charcoal-drawn feel where the other X’s appear as red paint sloppily painted.

Saddam X'd Out by Time magazineApril, 2003 – Time gave us the Saddam Hussein X-out. The cover was released as U.S. forces occupied Baghdad and sent Saddam on the run. Saddam Hussein was actually not killed until 2006 when after an Iraqi trial, he was hanged.
Zarqawi gets X'd out by TimeThe most recent x-out by Time’s artists and journalists was Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in June of 2006 after being killed by a U.S. bomb.
And the piece de resistance, the grande finale, the best of the best – May, 2011, the cover of a Time special issue will be adorned with Osama bin Laden’s ugly mug covered by a bright red X. This cover brought to you courtesy of U.S. Navy SEALS – Team Six – “DevGru” *Salute*

WHY CAN’T WE JUST ALL GET ALONG?

WHY CAN’T WE JUST ALL GET ALONG?
There is actually a naïve group of people out there in La-La Land who believe that all human beings should be able to just ‘get along.’ Obviously these ignorant dreamers do not know their history. These dream-weavers have spent too much time listening to their hybrid Ghandi/Timothy Leary/John Lennon/Bono influenced leaders/teachers. What these naïve hopers of world peace can’t accept is the fact that people are different. Different because of differing ideologies; social, economic, political and religious ideologies. I too am in favor of peace—real peace! But I have enough brains to know that any nation or people that want to wipe America and Israel off the face of the earth cannot be really trusted to keep their peace agreements. As prove of my theory, I would encourage anyone who doubts me to take their hopey/changey ‘why can’t we all just get along’ peace dream to the middle of some fundamental Islamic nation and encourage them to be more tolerate, more yielding to Western Democracy. I will give you about two hours before you’re arrested or killed.

I shake my head in bewilderment every time I see the bumper sticker which asks, “Why can’t we all just get along.” I’m sure the owner of this bumper sticker would probably have a different political view—at least a differing public one–if they lived in Outer Mongolia during the viscous days of Genghis Khan, or under the violent rule of an ungodly Roman Caesar, or during the blood-thirsty, animalistic SS butchers days of Adolf Hitler.

The reality is there are a lot of people I do not want to get along with. I refuse to casually share a beer with people who baby murderers and rapists. I do not want to live next-door to religious nuts that have no problem using innocent women and children as bomb deliverers. I do not want to be buddy, buddy with people who believe big government is the answer to our social and economic ills. I have no desire to get all kissy and huggy with those people who think that I should pay higher taxes so they can have better retirement benefits. I definitely do not want to be in the same room with anyone who thinks it’s okay to murder innocent babies. And I definitely do not want my kids playing in the yard of one of America’s thousands of free-roaming neighborhood registered sex offenders. I could go on and on with people I do not want to hang with. People I consider willfully stupid.

Purposely wrong. Some are so wrong that I would consider them evil. Remember, light and dark don’t like each other. Good and evil are the same way–they are opposites. Do not tell me you’re my buddy if you put your own selfish desires above what’s good for the entire state or nation. You and I do not see eye-to-eye if you believe it’s a good thing to spend tax-payers money, or for that matter anyone’s money to buy needles for drug addicts, condemns for sexually diseased and/or sexually promiscuous people or assist ‘artists’ complete disgusting things in the name of art.

BUT DON’T YOU KNOW, ALL WE HAVE
TO DO IS ‘GIVE PEACE A CHANCE’

Like we haven’t already tried that a million and one times! I love meeting the uninformed, ignorant, college-educated liberal who tries to tell me war never solved anything. Obviously any educated person who believes that war played no good part in shaping history was taught history out of the auto-biography of the Three Stooges. I kindly (usually kindly) remind these liberal air-heads when I meet them that the only reason American’s are not speaking (evil empire) German or Japanese and living under an (evil empire) German or Japanese flag is because of war. War has helped to end fascism, communism, socialism, slavery, and barbarism. Hopefully we will get a chance to use it to eliminate fanatical Islamic nuts. America herself is a free nation, full of free people because American patriots were willing to give up their peaceful home life or peaceful farm life and go to war.

I also shake my head in bewilderment whenever I see the bumper stickers like:

Coexist bumper stickerThe C is the symbol for Islam: The C symbol hates the X T and O symbols—and is not afraid to prove it by blowing X, and T up with bombs—even using innocent women and children to do it.

The O is the symbol for peace: The O symbol isn’t even a remote possibility as long as C and J and C and T symbols live next to each other. Also, the O symbol has been tried over and over again in all the other symbols. It didn’t take!

The E is the symbol for males/females: And unfortunately, the curse doesn’t even allow the two parts of the E symbol to get along without God’s help. And the female part of the E symbol lives most times as a doormat for the men of the C, X and T symbols.

The X is the symbol for Judaism: The C symbol doesn’t even believe there is an X symbol and would love nothing better than to completely wipe the X and the T symbol off the map and off this bumper sticker too.
The I is dotted with a Wiccan Pentangle: It doesn’t take a nuclear scientist to figure out that the C, X, S and T symbols believe the I symbol is evil. (‘Good’ witch? Yeah right!) No chance of peace here. Anyone who believes Mother Earth living in my Walnut Trees out back doesn’t real have much of a chance of being taken seriously by C, E, X, S or T.

The S is the symbol for the yin-yang or Confucianism; All one has to say is that S Followers are believers in a YIN and YANG and the symbols C, E, X, I and T are going to think the S symbol is a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Here’s one of the teachings of S: To learn and from time to time to apply what one has learned, isn’t that a pleasure? Deep? Not! Oh, by the way, the leader of S believed war was necessary in order to preserve justice. Sounds like an American Patriot to me.

The T is the symbol for Christianity: The T symbol has tried numerous times to reach the C, E, X, I, and S symbols. Sometimes in unrighteous ways—Crusades. Other times by the Creator of peace Himself. But even the Creator could not bring peace to most of C, E, X, S, I and T. In fact, the people of the X symbol rejected Him enough to kill Him—a man who came in peace. The symbol C, X and I believe the T symbol is mostly a fairytale.

BELOW IS A POLITICAL REASON WHY
WE WON’T ALL GET ALONG

In Wisconsin, a majority of voters legally elected a majority of politicians to fix our state’s budget woes—without raising taxes. So a majority of legally elected politicians attempted to do just that. Unfortunately, those who lost the election—losers, were not willing to go along with the decisions of the majority. So the losers yelled. Then the losers stamped their feet. Then these loser elected politicians ran away. They losers ran so they would not have to do their job. The losers ran so they did not have to get along with the politicians they did not agree with. Then the losers ran and called those people they do get along with—out of state union thugs—for advice. The losers knew the union leaders would help them. These cowardly politicians did not want to get along with Wisconsin voters, but they had no problem getting along with their out of state union buddies. So being the peacemakers that they are, the majority tried to work with the anti-peaceful losers who fled, but the losers who fled were not willing to go along with the peacemakers. So the majority worked and thought, and worked and thought, and then legally passed a law to help our state financially. And still the losers who fled the state stayed away. Worse yet the losers whined and stamped their feet some more. These fleeing losers showed they did not want to be at peace with the majority of Wisconsin tax-payers, or Wisconsin’s majority elected politicians. These deserters did not like the new law which benefited all Wisconsinites. Whaa! So the cried.  Then what did the whiny wittle babies do to show they were not willing to get along with the majority rule? They found a dirty judge who loves whiny wittle babies. And this dirty judge decides she too does not like what the majority of legally elected politicians did, and decides to become a whiny wittle baby herself. This judge sure was not willing to get along with the majority was she? This judge really didn’t have the majority of Wisconsin Tax-payers on her mind when making her decision. Did this fair-minded judge decide peace was best for Wisconsin? No! What’s really disgusting is that this dirty judge is not ruling against Walker’s bill because it is some horrendously evil, anti-human, anti-breathing tax bill. This dirty judge simply did not like how the bill was passed. Once again, another (bad) example of a liberal judge not only ignoring the votes of the majority, but also taking it upon herself to tell the legislative branch of government how to do their job!

People, it is things like these which clearly show why all humans will never get along. There are many of us who are not afraid to call murdering religious zealots evil. And then there are those who believe these type of people are good people. There are many of us who recognize people like Nero, Adolf Hitler, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Carl Marx, Joseph Stalin, etc. are evil. And then there are those who loved these men. They speak well of them in their universities. There are those of us who appreciate the soldier who is willing to give it all so I and others can be free. And then there are those who hate the soldier for what he does. Yes, there are definitely people, on planet earth that I will never get along with.

There are too many of us who care more about doing what’s best for everyone, and not just doing what’s best to get a vote. There are too many of us who plainly see that socialism never works—no matter how good the intentions. There are many of us who believe it’s wrong to throw babies in the garbage can like a piece of rotten meat. There are many of us who see right is good and bad is wrong. There are many of us who walk in the light trying to expose the deeds of darkness. I thank God that He created both good and evil—light and dark. And I thank God more that He gave us humans the freewill to choose what side we want to be on. Lord help us all to stay strong in the Light; the darkness is getting stronger.

Out of the Frying Pan Into the Fire

 

Charter Schools Might Be Just as Scary as Public Schools

Today, I learned the hard way how easy it is to get caught up in something that you would want no part of. Thankfully I learned the full story before it was too late.

I am a mother of 5 with kids ranging from 3 to 9 years old and they attend public school- for now!

We have considered private school, but with four children already in school and another one that will be in school in 2 years, the cost of private school is just not a possible choice for us.

This has been an ongoing struggle of mine and my husband’s since our first child entered the public school system. We have contemplated home-schooling, and at one point we were very close to pulling them out of public school mid-year to make that a reality.

We also have considered charter schools. I became aware of the charter school option last year and began researching them. Unfortunately, I still had a lot of unanswered questions by the time school enrolled for this current year so we chose to keep them at their current school.

As the year has progressed we have had several situations come up that have once again left us knowing that we have to make some changes soon.

My husband and I have been praying desperately about what to do. Up until this point neither of us has received a clear answer to our prayers.

Since we are not involved in a church we want to make sure our children have a social outlet. If we do end up homeschooling I know that I will become a part of a homeschooling group so they can have social interaction with kids their own age.

In the midst of our frustration and continuous prayer- just two weeks ago- an “answer to prayer” presented itself through the mail. We received a mail-out about a charter school opening in our area. We read the literature and checked things out online. It seemed to be a very promising possibility! I filled out the online registration form for each of my school age children. We then left it all in God’s hands.

On Saturday I received a call inviting us to the open house which is for tonight. I accepted the invitation with much excitement and immediately called my husband, who was out running an errand. Things most certainly looked as though God was providing us an answer to our desperate prayers!

Now, let me back up just a bit for a couple of side-notes.

We have friends who enrolled their kids in a charter school right after the start of this school year. They, too, have had nothing but issue after issue with the public school system. If it was not one thing with one child, it was another thing with another child. She finally had enough, pulled her kids out of public school and immediately enrolled them into this charter school. She insisted that I should check this school out for my kids, knowing the ongoing issues and frustrations we are having as well.

The more questions I asked the more reservations I had. The principal of the school is Turkish. The school teaches the Turkish language as a foreign language. The school participates in the yearly Turkish Festival in Houston.

She and her previous husband were stationed in Turkey with the military several years ago, so she was very excited about this. Though I could give no concrete reason why, there was something that just did not set well with me after hearing all this information. No, I am not in any way racist against the Turkish people. It just seemed a bit odd to me that a charter school would be so focused on one specific nationality.  If it is about teaching diversity they are most certainly lacking in accomplishing that goal!

Just last week I happened to see a news article stating that the FBI was investigating US Charter Schools with Turkish links. I read the article and thought to myself, “Yep! I knew there was a reason why I was uncomfortable with that specific Charter School!”

I have not thought much about it since reading the article. I vaguely remember thinking that I wanted to tell my husband about it, because we both had reservations with the school our friends enrolled their kids in. As is normal with life, things got busy and it completely slipped my mind to discuss the article with him.

So, here we are back to today. The kids come home from school and I immediately start the shower line. With this many kids shower time has to be planned out.

All of the kids are showered and dressed and are working on homework. We are just waiting for the hands of the clock to tick away so we can leave for Open House. I’ve glanced at the clock a few times, hoping and praying that my husband can be home in time to go with us.

My telephone rings. It is my husband. Before I answer the phone I have a passing thought, “Don’t tell me he is going to be longer than is expected! I want him to go with us tonight!” I answer the phone, and his first words to me were, “We may have to rethink what we are going to do.” I asked him what he was referring to and he tells me that he’s been doing some deeper research into the Charter School after seeing the news article regarding the FBI Investigation. I slapped my forehead, frustrated because I have forgotten to tell him about it!

We began discussing the article and his further research, and it seems as though the new Charter School where we have an appointment is directly tied in with the organization that is being investigated by the FBI! He said he did not want to completely dismiss the idea, because in his research he saw a lot of conflicting reports. Some parents were not happy with the organization, many were extremely happy with it.

We decided that we would still go to check everything out but we would make no commitments until we processed everything, talked about it, and of course prayed about it, above all.

We ended our conversation so he could finish up what he was doing to head home.

As I began tidying up the counter, I picked up the weekly newspaper. My intention was to sort through the coupons, as is my weekly routine, browse quickly through the actual newspaper, and throw everything away that I don’t need. When I opened the newspaper up my heart literally began to race!

Right there on the front page was an article about the new school opening up! No, it was not an article exposing the school as one of the Turkish connected schools that is being investigated- it was simply an article about the ribbon cutting ceremony which is coming up this Friday and the fact that they are seeking more students. Near the end of the article it named the organization they were funded by- as well as funds from the taxpayers of the state of Texas!

I immediately went to the internet and did a quick search on the name of the organization- the Cosmos Foundation and here is what I found.

As I read the article at the above link discusses how there is a huge mystery surrounding the foundation, and the fact that when interviewing the superintendant of Harmony Schools more questions arose than were actually answered. The administrator being interviewed adamantly denied that neither the schools nor the organization have any ties with Fethullah Gulen or his movement which has long-term goal to create a “universal caliphate”.

It article also stated that there is “evidence that the Turkish administrators of Harmony are operating under the Islamic principle of taqiyya or “holy deception.” The administrators for this school system/organization have no problem LYING about who they are and who they are connected with! And yet we are supposed to believe him when he says there is no connection to the radical Gulen?

I am trying to teach my children to tell the TRUTH NO MATTER WHAT, and the administrators of the school I was considering sending them to have no problem with deception if it is defined by their beliefs as “holy” and fits their purpose! I am sure the “tolerant leftists” would urge me not to jump to conclusions! To these people I ask, “What in the world would make me believe they would actually tell me THE TRUTH!?”

Before I finished the article I called my husband back to tell him our plans for the evening had changed, that after seeing the article in the newspaper and doing further investigating there is no way on God’s green earth that I am going to expose my children to this!

Now, I am sure there are people that will read this and call me a racist, a bigot, a right-wing nut, a conspiracy theorist or any other derogatory term that is so often hurled around by the “tolerant leftists”. That is fine- call me what you will! However, last time I check, The United States of America is still a free country- at least at this time!  I have a choice on where my children go to school, whether it is public school, private school, a charter school or home school. If you choose to send your child to a charter school that is part of an organization that is being investigated by the FBI then that is your choice! I will not try to change your mind. You are free to make your choice, leave my choice for my children up to me!

I already have to counter-teach the secular humanism they are being taught in public school! Given the choice I would much rather have to teach against secular humanism than the strong possibility of having to teach against a religion that teaches that “god” instructs you to kill those who do not believe as you do and that it is ok to lie if it is a “holy lie”!

As a believer in Christ Jesus I know what The Bible teaches.  John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” If Islam/Muslims teach that you should kill those who do not believe as you do this is proof in and of itself that it is a religion straight from the thief- Satan- and the very pits of hell! My Jesus came that all that believe in Him will have life- eternal life- to the fullest! Given the choice I cannot imagine how anyone would actually choose to believe in something that seeks to steal, kill and destroy rather than give life abundant. However, millions of people still choose to believe the lies of this religion.

Now, for those who would choose to attack me by saying that not all Muslims are radical, and in fact, most Muslims are very peace loving people who do not believe in killing infidels, then I say that is fine. This is a free country and they have a choice to believe as they choose. I will not try to change their mind or pressure them or persuade them that my beliefs are right. That is not my job. Yes, I pray for these people, because again, The Bible is very clear that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Way, the ONLY  Truth, and the ONLY Life. No one… NO ONE- comes to The Father- God- except through Him- The Son. (John 14:6) But I know that there is nothing within my power to change someone’s beliefs. That is left to God and the person themselves, whether they choose to have an open mind and heart.

In the very depths of my heart I feel that we averted a crisis tonight. If we had moved our kids from public school to this charter school that is directly connected with the schools that are being investigated by the FBI I believe with every fiber of my being that we would have been jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. Yes, we still have another crisis of sorts to deal with. We know that public school is not the answer for our children. We know that we must make some very difficult decisions very soon. For now, our prayers and our search continue. We have reached a point where we know we have to make a change in our children’s education.

Parents, BEWARE! In your frustration with the state of our public school system I warn you to not allow desperation to take over. I believed that this was possibly an answer to our fervent prayers for a solution in our frustration with the public school system. Sometimes what we perceive as an answer from God very well could be from Satan.

One thing that I learned in my searching is that the taxpayers of Texas pay $41 million a year to this organization to run these charter schools. I also learned that Texas Congressman Randy Neugebauer- a Republican- supports these schools, and former President George W. Bush invited students from the Academy to The White House. And now the FBI is investigating them because these schools appear to be breeding grounds to accomplish Gulen’s goal of a universal caliphate!? Yet another reason why I do not trust a single one of our elected officials!

LTC Allen West’s Visit to Gitmo Quite Revealing

               Florida Congressman Allen West (R-FL) went down to Guatanimo Bay, Cuba recently and reports back his observations, not only as a Congressman, but also as a 22 year U. S. Military officer whom has served in Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Afghanistan. Rep. West exposes the many myths and misconceptions about Gitmo today in his weekly wrap-up newsletter, in which he keeps his constituents informed of  just what he is doing each week on their behalf, and is quite detailed and refreshing. I would like to see more representatives make their weekly official-duties-performed newsletters availiable to the people they are supposed to serve. This is called accountability, and we see very little true accountability from the majority of our members of Congress today. In the Congressman’s newsletter, the following quotes pretty much summarize what he encountered in his first ever trip to Gitmo:

   “There are many misconceptions and pre-conceived notions about the detention facility at GITMO. Every American should be absolutely proud of our men and women in uniform serving at GITMO because  their discipline and professionalism is above reproach.”

   “The video footage shown on most news reels is not showing the current camps occupied in GITMO. The old Camp X-Ray, also known as Camps 1-3, is no longer in use. There are now new state-of-the-art facilities affording the detainees 21 satellite TV stations, access to Skype and cell phone, mail, bountiful food, up to 20 hours of communal living (I toured an active communal living block), and medical care.” 

     Rep. West also compares the life of Gitmo detainees, (of which 95% of them have been proven to have been waging Jihad against America, or having had ties to terrorist organizations), with the lives of our very own soldiers who have been imprisoned for alleged transgressions committed during wartime. He expresses his anger about this double standard in the following statement:

    “In contrast, I think of our own American Warriors such as Lieutenant Michael Behenna who is serving 15 years in Fort Leavenworth prison for killing a known Al Qaeda terrorist in Iraq. I also consider the plight of young Army Private Corey Claggett who has been held in solitary confinement for over a year. The conditions at Fort Leavenworth are not nearly as comfortable. Something else that deeply angers me…at GITMO, 24-year-old Omar Khadr will serve one more year before being released to his native Canada, even though he was found “guilty” of five war crimes, including killing an American serviceman in Afghanistan. Upon release to Canada, the maximum time he will serve is seven years. What message does that send to our men and women in uniform? “

      An American soldier is serving 15 years in prison in Levenworth, Kansas for killing an Al Qaeda terrorist, while Omar Khadr , whom was found guilty of five war crimes and the killing of American Soldiers in Afghanistan, will be free to kill again next year. What kind of a country have we become to let these kinds of politically correct injustices be done to our Soldiers fighting to protect America ? Private Clagett sits in solitary confinement for over a year, while these murderers sit in Club Gitmo with better medical care than the average American taxpayer can afford, with satellite tv and a custom engineered schedule taylored to their so-called peaceful religion of Islam?  The whole idea behind the  incarceration of someone is to deter them from continuing to commit the acts that landed them there in the first place, not reward them with a life of comfort. The people behind these kinds of acts of politically correct ideology in dealing with terrorists are only emboldening these Jihadists to continue murdering Americans, due to the fact that these terrorists now see that they will not be truly held accountable for their actions. America is too weak and leaderless to take swift action against terrorists, is what they see. We may as well post signs all across Iraq and Afghanistan that say, “Kill a few Americans and win a freee trip to Club Gitmo. where

Shariah Law Creates Economic Meltdowns

Shariah law has a nasty habit of melting down the economy of any nation in which it has been implemented. Attacking the economies of western societies is a tenet of radical Islam. And, as we shall see in this article, the progressive/socialist movement in western societies has formed a dangerous partnership with radical Islam – forming a socialistic Jihad to be wielded against democracies throughout the world. David Jonnson, author of Islamic Economics and the Final Jihad has this to say as an introduction to Islamic economics:

My goal today is to put you into the mind of an Islamist — to think like an Islamist. It is only possible to understand the events occurring by understanding their thinking and what it would mean to live under Shariah law. There is a well-worn Cliché “It’s the economy stupid” that appears around election times. So it is with Islamic Economics and the Clash of Ideologies we are witnessing today.

It should be realized that the goal of the Islamists, following in the footsteps of Muhammad, is not so much to conquer the land but to Islmanize the populations. In so doing they seek to have the lands come under Shariah law and that the lands become dar al-Islam—the land of Islam and that all non-Muslims accept the status of Dhimmis—subservient to Muslim rule. The Plan involves the incremental acceptance of basic tenants of Shariah law as applied to all aspects of life—the Islamic “Way of Life”. This implies the desire to incrementally change the laws and ultimately the Constitution of the U.S. This requires the population to accept the new laws as equally valid and acceptable. Initially this will result in parallel legal systems and progressing from there with laws that may be applied locally and ultimately nationally. Jihad can be with the pen and the tongue, just as it can be the sword and the spear as Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood has said. Knowledge combined with economic control can be wielded with the precision of a sharp sword to effect any desired social/political change necessary for the fulfillment of Islam’s goal. – David J. Jonsson

Jonsson goes on to explain just how the Islams intend to create Shariah law within the United States and other western countries:

Jihad is considered a required religious duty for Muslims. Jihad is Islam’s normal path to expansion.

Islamic Economics is the stealth sword of Islam. It is more powerful than the Weapons of Mass Destruction and terrorism. It is immune to negotiation. The stealth sword is being applied for the Islamization of the West and the whole world. The goal is to create the “Islamic kingdom of God on earth.” The implementation of Shariah law would have a dramatic affect on your life and that of the entire Western Civilization. Understand the nature of the evil and do not be blindsided…

Islamic economics has an impact on your life, whether you are a banker, investing in the stock market, selling a home, buying a car, purchasing food, buying a suit or a dress, or just trying to make sense of the current events. Islamic economics and Islamic banking are primary Islamist strategies to condition the West to accept Shariah law as a basis for all life in all nations.

The Islamic movement is an idea movement; at the present time the leader(s) has not been identified. Many, if not most, of the participants in Islamic Financing may not even be aware that they may be supporting the Islamist agenda.

Our goal is to understand, the genesis of Islamic Economics, what it is, how it is taking place, and how it would affect our lives.

And what is the means by which Shariah law gains a foothold into western societies. Through the machinations of liberal Democrats and RINOs, of course. As Sir Winston Churchill once famously said, “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.” And if there is one thing that the progressives specialize in it is appeasement. The progressive policy of appeasement is allowing Shariah law to slither its way into the United States financial system.

The twentieth century has witnessed the emergence of an economic doctrine that calls itself Islamic economics. The doctrine is significant because it advances the sprawling and headline-grabbing movement known as political Islam, Islamic fundamentalism, or simply Islamism.

The movement is having a profound impact. The Islamic windows of major banks that incorporate the principles of Islamic economics represent the fastest growing sector. The banks, based on the principles of Islamic economics, raise billions of dollars in the form of Islamic bonds (sukuk ) annually. Banking laws in Islamic and Western countries are changing to accommodate Islamic economic rules. The Dow Jones Islamic Stock Index and in April 2006, Dow Jones and Citigroup announced the launch of the first Islamic Bond Index. The Dow Jones Citigroup Sukuk Index, is the first index that seeks to measure the performance of global bonds complying with Islamic (Shariah compliant) investment guidelines. – David Jonsson

The Muslin Brotherhood (al-lkhwan al-Muslimun) is the main motivator behind setting up experiments in Islamic financing on a global scale. The theory and the practical requirements needed to set up an Islamic banking system come from the ranks of the Ilkwan.

“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”—Muslim Brotherhood

Today’s progressive/leftist movement within the United States is increasingly being integrated into Shariah law. Jonsson explains this concept:

The people in the West who are trying to construct a new socialism, a de-Marxified alternative to the politics of pure individualism, share the views of Islamist economists. These Westerners also accept the market as the essential driving-force of any economy, but they too wish to set it within a man-made moral framework that will ensure support for the weak through the compassion and self-discipline of the strong. What communism tried and failed to achieve through the state, one Islamic economist has written, “is to be established through the agency of man himself.” It would be a good slogan for the possible new socialism of the twenty-first century. As we will see, these principles are being promoted broadly in the West. This merging of ideologies is a powerful force in today’s political environment. This merging is taking the form of a Marxist/Leftist – Islamist Alliance.

Thus you see Barack Obama sympathizing with the Islamist Movement. Many people have wondered if Obama is a Muslim. It is certainly a worthy topic of discussion. But more importantly is the fact that Obama is implementing policies that are favorable to this new socialist/Islamist alliance. Professor Yusaf al-Qarasawi, in his book, The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam, clarifies the melding of socialism and Shariah law in the realms of commerce and finance:

Islamic law on commerce is known as fiqh al-mu`amalat. Much of the laws, rules and interpretations of Shariah takes into consideration issues of social justice, equitability, and fairness, as well as practicality of financial transactions. In general, the Shariah legal maxim in relation to commercial transactions and contracts states: “They are permissible unless there is a clear prohibition.” In a nutshell, prohibited elements of a commercial transaction must first be removed for it to be Shariah-compliant. The major prohibited elements under Shariah are riba (interest), gharar (uncertainty), maisir (gambling), non-halal (prohibited) food and drinks and immoral activities.

The principles laid out by al-Qaradawi are having profound influence on all daily and commercial activities, not only in the finance sector, but also in the energy, transportation (ports and terminals), construction, and food and drink sector. The goal is to bring all commercial activity into Shariah compliance.

Mawlana Mawdudi, was a Sunni Pakistani journalist, theologian, Muslim revivalist leader and political philosopher, and a major 20th century Islamist thinker.[2] He was also a prominent political figure in his home country (Pakistan) and was the first recipient of King Faisal International Award for his services to Islam in 1979. He was also the founder of Jamaat-e-Islami, the Islamic revivalist party.Mawdudi had a goal of establishing a separate Muslim society. He was against integration or assimilation in to Western Culture. Examples of his philosophy have resulted in the Muslim dominated ghettos such as Clichy-sous-Bois and Bagneux outside Paris and Leicester in the U.K. This concept of a separate Muslim society is now starting to pervade major money center banks with the concept that Muslim funds may not be comingled with those of non-Muslims.

Mawdudi saw Muslims not as people who followed the religion of Islam, but as everything: “Everything in the universe is ‘Muslim’ for it obeys God by submission to His laws.” The only exception to this universe of Muslims were human beings who failed to follow Islam. In regard to the non-Muslim:

“His very tongue which, on account of his ignorance advocates the denial of God or professes multiple deities, is in its very nature ‘Muslim’ … The man who denies God is called Kafir (concealer) because he conceals by his disbelief what is inherent in his nature and embalmed in his own soul. His whole body functions in obedience to that instinct… Reality becomes estranged from him and he gropes in the dark”.

Mawdudi believed that Islam was a “religion” in a broader sense of the term. He stated: “Islam is not a ‘religion’ in the sense this term is commonly understood. It is a system encompassing all fields of living. Islam means politics, economics, legislation, science, humanism, health, psychology and sociol­ogy. It is a system which makes no discrimination on the basis of race, color, language or other external categories. Its appeal is to all mankind. It wants to reach the heart of every human being.”

Maududi believed that without Sharia law Muslim society could not be Islamic:

That if an Islamic society consciously resolves not to accept the Sharia, and decides to enact its own constitution and laws or borrow them from any other source in disregard of the Sharia, such a society breaks its contract with God and forfeits its right to be called ‘Islamic.'”

Based on Maududi’s doctrine that Islam is all-encompassing, the Muslims seek to extend Islam beyond the historical homeland of Islam unto the entire world. And they use Jihad to accomplish this end.

Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a state on the basis of its own ideology and programme, regardless of which nation assumes the role of the standard-bearer of Islam or the rule of which nation is undermined in the process of the establishment of an ideological Islamic State. Islam requires the earth—not just a portion, but the whole planet …. because the entire mankind should benefit from the ideology and welfare programme [of Islam] … Towards this end, Islam wishes to press into service all forces which can bring about a revolution and a composite term for the use of all these forces is ‘Jihad’. …. the objective of the Islamic ‘ Jihād’ is to eliminate the rule of an un-Islamic system and establish in its stead an Islamic system of state rule. – Mawlana Mawdudi

The teachings of Mawdudi on no integration and/or assimilation into Western culture has far-reaching impact today on many of the issues being addressed in Europe. When immigrants came to America in its formative years, their goal was integration into a unified culture; this is what made America the strong nation it is. In Canada, the Muslim population has sought and has already achieved the separation by the creation of separate civil courts for Muslims. The goal of Islamists is the incremental Islamization of all countries and peoples.

Ummah is an Arabic word that means “community” or “nation.” In the context of Islam, the word ummah is used in foreign languages as well as in Arabic to mean the “nation of the believers” (ummatu l-muminin), and thus the whole Muslim world. The phrase al-ummatun wahid in the Qur’an (the “One Community”) refers to the entire Muslim world unified. Some modern Islamists use the term Islamic Ummah or Muslim Ummah to refer to all the people in the lands and countries where predominantly Muslims reside, and which were once under the control of the Islamic caliphate.

Jonsson has this to say about Mawdudi:

Whatever one thinks of his agenda, he was onto something real: with technological progress, economics was indeed becoming increasingly important to daily life everywhere. In a technologically primitive and static world, where family background determines one’s career, where one plants and sells crops in the ways of one’s grandparents, where one has little to spend on non-subsistence goods, and where markets offer little variety, economics may be vital to physical survival, but economic decision-making does not absorb much attention. By contrast, in a technologically advanced world, where job choices must be made, where women pursue and interrupt careers outside the home, where investment choices require monitoring, and where markets offer abundant choice, economic decision-making absorbs considerable time. It follows that if economic choice is considered a secular activity, economic advances will make Muslim existence look increasingly secular. But if economic activity is considered a religious activity, then economic development need not reduce Islam’s perceived role in the lives of Muslims.

The declared purpose of Islamic economics is to establish a new world economic order that conforms to Islamic scripture–the Qur’an–and Muslim tradition. (1) Its core positions took shape in the 1940s, and three decades later, efforts to implement them were under way in dozens of countries. (2) In Pakistan, Malaysia, and elsewhere, governments are now running centralized Islamic redistribution systems known as zakat.

More than sixty countries have Islamic banks that claim to offer an interest-free alternative to conventional banking. Invoking religious principles, several countries, among them Pakistan and Iran, have gone so far as to outlaw every form of interest; they are forcing all banks, including foreign subsidiaries, to adopt, at least formally, ostensibly Islamic methods of deposit taking and loan making. Attempts are also under way to disseminate religious norms of price setting, bargaining, and wage determination. And for every such initiative, others are on the drawing board.

As seen from an Islamist perspective, Islamic finance provides financial services in accordance with Islamic law or Shariah. Islamists emphasize that Islamic financial services represent the ethical, social, and religious dimension of financial transactions to enhance equity and fairness for the general good of society. These services are not limited to commercial banking and extend into capital markets, insurance and other channels of non-bank financial intermediation. Adoption of the principles of Islamic Finance by the western institutions is a critical step in the Islamization of the West and the acceptance of Shariah law. It is one step forward in making dar al-harb into dar a-Islam and non-Muslims becoming al-Dhimmis and subservient to Islamic rule.

Just as the proponents of “organic” foods and the Green lobby have promoted their ideologies with catch phrases, the Islamists have promoted the their ideology of “Islamic-Safe” and “socially responsible investment” as preferred words for Islamist investing and finance, signifying that the investment products are in compliance with Shariah Law.

We have all heard the term “social justice” bandied about by Obama and his ilk. But now we gain the understanding that this term actually has its roots in Shariah Law. The concept of Social Justice is part of Shariah Law. It does not mean what conservative American citizens take it to mean. Rather, it means law that conforms to the Islamic way of life. “Social Justice” therefore, is an Islamic term and Obama is using it in order to “condition” us to its use. Obama is not using this term by accident. Obama is merely part of a larger conspiracy to subject the United States to the rule of the socialist/Islamist conspiracy.

Economic jihad is a long-term incremental program being waged to Islamize the world. The Medina Charter of 622, the conquests of Muhammad and the early caliphs gave birth for all time (within the Muslim world) of an institution that places the native populations into a permanently handicapped status. The imposition of Shariah law in Iraq and Afghanistan and changing and/or implementing Shariah-compliant laws in the West all contribute to accomplishing the goal of Islamization, as called for by Muhammad. – David Jonsson

Mawdudi also largely expanded upon his view of the Islamic State and Sharia in his book Islamic Way of Life.

As David Kennedy Houck wrote in the Middle East Quarterly for Spring 2006, The Islamist Challenge to the U.S. Constitution, “First in Europe and now in the United States, Muslim groups have petitioned to establish enclaves in which they can uphold and enforce greater compliance to Islamic law. While the U.S. Constitution enshrines the right to religious freedom and the prohibition against a state religion, when it comes to the rights of religious enclaves to impose communal rules, the dividing line is more nebulous. Can U.S. enclaves, homeowner associations, and other groups enforce Islamic law?”

The goals of Islamists in establishing an economic system based on Islamic law (the Shariah) are:

  • To establish credibility for Islam as a “way of life” equal to all other economic and religious doctrines
  • To establish an economic system that allows control of the financial, natural resources and intellectual properties by a totalitarian, non-elected hierarchy justified on the basis of religious law–the Qur’an
  • To bring together the global economic resources of Islamic Ummah to influence the world opinion and provide the funding for proselytizing (Da’wa) of non-believers
  • To establish an economic system not based on scientific principles but on religious beliefs

Economics under Shariah law will result in the redistribution of wealth, the confiscation of private property, the establishment of a mega-Islamic bank with global reach and financing backed by the Islamic Development Bank (IDB), control of the exportable oil and natural gas world-wide, control of major transportation systems including the Suez Canal and ports, create a new currency based on the gold dinar, establishment of an interlinked merchandise trading system and a trading block with Free Trade Agreements with other blocks. And mandating the contribution of title (zakat) and directing the funds for economic gain, political action and the proselytizing of non-Muslims.

If this is the kind of world we wish to live under then we can continue to elect socialists, Marxists, progressives, liberals, and environmentalist whackos who worship trees and assorted flies. Their appeasement of the Islamist radicals ensures our eventual demise. On the other hand we can wake up to the threat that radical Islam presents to us and we can fight for our freedoms. The choice is ours – but not for long. If we do not take action quickly we face the reality that we might be too late to the fight to win it. The time for appeasement is over. The time for action is at hand America.

Who is the Muslim Brotherhood?

Muslim BrotherhoodThe Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, toed the Obama administration line during a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Thursday. He stated that Egypt’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood movement was “largely secular”. Really? Really?

What The Muslim Brotherhood Says:

Kamal Helbawi

Kamal El-Halbawy (Kamal Helbawi)

In an interview on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation today, Tony Jones interviewed a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Dr. Kamal El-Helbawy (a.k.a. Kamal Helbawi).  While the interview is relatively tame and presents a very politically correct view, it establishes Kamal as a senior level member of the organization. Kamal makes the point the the Muslim Brotherhood is not after political power.

And in any case, the Muslim Brotherhood leadership and spokesman announced it many, many times, as it is in our teachings that we teach to our junior generations, that we are not after power, but we are after a society that is built on, and a political system built on democratic values, freedom and equal social justice, equal opportunities and the dignity of human rights and the respect of human rights.

Sounds pretty good huh? Except that part about social justice..  eerily familiar.

Kamal continues with a tactic that is very similar to those used by the Progressive extremists in America.

..so the priority is not for the private agenda, the priority is for the agenda proposed and the amendments needed and required by the revolutions.

Not – it is not the right time or the place for the private agenda. Neither Islamist, nor the leftist.

Kind of the Islamic form of a “nudge”. “Neither Islamist, nor the leftist”.. let that reverberate. He is basically saying that the Muslim brotherhood is perfectly fine hiding their private agenda while riding on the backs of the Egyptian revolutionaries.

They will help the Egyptian populace achieve their revolution and then they will push their private agenda. What’s interesting is that the popular desire to remove the current government may well progress the Muslim Brotherhood’s private goal by mistake – furtherance towards the re-establishment of a Muslim state that stretches from Spain to India.

This progressive approach to an Islamist nation is further evidenced in an Islamic Republic News Agency article where Helbawi posited that the Iranian revolution of 1979 is a model to follow. Then Kamal demonstrates his belief in the nudge approach (emphasis mine).

“We are with freedom now, until the people are ready to accept Islam,”

The supreme leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mahdi Akif , is taped[2] giving us a view into the ultimate goals of the group he heads.

Muslim Brother’s dream is to form a total Islamic state.

Still sound secular Mr. Clapper?

What The Muslim Brotherhood Does:

With the Obama administration, Americans have certainly become very familiar with the idea that words and deeds don’t always agree. The Muslim Brotherhood preaches peace and justice – the question is how well do they follow their own advice.

First some history. Founded in Egypt in 1928, the group’s charter was to dethrone the Egyptian king, rid the country of western influences and establish a Islamic theocracy. The Muslim Brotherhood became infamous for its terrorist activities and was banned in Egypt and Syria.[1]

While its infamy forced it to renounce violence, the group simply delegated violent activities to other groups – useful idiots if you will. Hamas is certainly the violent arm of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Queda and Osama Bin Laden were influenced if not funded by the Islamic group.

Frank Gaffney  talks of the dangers should the Muslim Brotherhood gain political influence in Egypt.

In the Riots in France in 2005, Muslim youths set sections of Paris on fire. The poor Muslim youth are unemployed and angry. According to a Norwegian documentary[2], the Muslim Brotherhood is fomenting and using this emotion to pull the youth into their cause. The Brotherhood doesn’t stop there, as the film points out, they take advantage of the desperate poor in Paris by asking them to break the law.

The Muslim brother’s have preachers that the send to all cities and suburbs in France .. They tell Muslim youth they may marry more than one woman even though French law prohibits polygami .. They say that in 50 years, or maybe just 40 years we will rule France and Europe because they don’t get as many children as us..

So perhaps they aren’t violent, but that does not make them less dangerous. They are basically planning to use Democracy against itself. At some point there will be more Muslim than secular population in European countries and when that population reaches voting age – Allah’s will be done. The majority is predicted to flip to Muslim domination as soon as 2021.

The American mainstream media also ignores the real dangers of the Muslim Brotherhood. They speak of them as a non-violent, peace-loving group. The actions of the Muslim Brotherhood are akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater. Sure, the guy yelling fire isn’t directly hurting anyone and will most likely not trample or crush a single panicked movie-goer, but he did directly cause the tramplings that will surely occur. In the eyes of our laws, that makes the fire-caller as guilty as the trampler, if not more so.

So the Brotherhood’s mind-screw of useful idiots like Hamas, Al Queda, Bin Laden, the desperate poor in France are certainly not the actions of a peace-loving, justice-seeking group. They just have others do their evil bidding while they sit back and watch the carnage as if there is no blood on their hands – our mainstream journalists are taking it hook, line and sinker.

So Mr. Clapper Who are the Muslim Brotherhood?

They are a religious (a.k.a. NOT SECULAR) group seeking the Islamification of the free world using violent sub-groups, the cradle, political influence and the ignorance of desperate, poor Muslim youth. Did we clear it up for you Mr. Director of National Intelligence?

Koran Burning Gone Wild

Days ago, Terry Jones said he would host a Koran burning party on 9-11.  Then he changed his mind, then he changed it again – we think.  Now, others are considering burning the Muslim holy book while Muslims push back:

2 Tennessee Men Burn Quran Despite Protest

Springfield Pastor Plans To Burn Quran

Westboro Baptist Church to burn Qurans if Dove doesn’t

Protester plans to burn Quran on [Wyoming] Capitol steps

Thousands protest Koran burning plan in Afghan north

Burn the Koran pastor flies to New York for 9/11

Koran bonfire on hold as heat begins to tell

Media outside pastor’s home finally snaps: “You’re just using us! We should all leave!”

The Ground Zero Mosque Organization: a Twitter Interview

Today on twitter I asked the Ground Zero Mosque Organization, @Park51,  a simple question. I did not recieve a simple answer.

StopObama2012: Do you condemn Hamas as a Terrorist Organization? Tweet

Park51: We don’t engage foreign politics. We’re working to build moderate Muslim communities BTW how’s stopping Obama going? ^_^ Tweet

As you can see thats a blantant attempt to tap dance away from the issue. Sorry, I don’t play softball on terrorism.

StopObama2012: I call yr answer a No, U wnt condemn Hamas as a terrorist organization. Therefor U have no business calling yourselves Moderate Tweet

StopObama2012: Stopping Obama is going just fine, thank you Tweet

I can be civil :) But my statement is true, if you won’t condemn terrorism or those that embrace it, you are not a moderate Muslim. But then denial gets worse.

Park51: Stop trying to drag us into int’l political debates. Happy to discuss American Muslim issues. Tweet

So asking if you will condemn terrorism and terrorist organizations is dragging people into political debates? Really? And is not Terrorism an American Muslim issue. Are there not American victims of terrorism in all faiths and creeds?

StopObama2012: I asked you a simple question, you refuse to answer. Your showing your true colors, your not moderate at all. Tweet

StopObama2012: As the Imam is currently touring the Middle East on the taxpayer dime, asking you about the MidEast & Hamas is relevant Tweet

Did I lie? Either you condemn terrorism,  you don’t care, or support it. A “Moderate Muslim” would condemn it. And the Imam is indeed on a taxpayer funded tour courtesy of the State Department.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsXTbiINWSU

Roughly 2 hours later I recieved a reply

Park51: The State Dept thinks Imam Feisal is ok to speak on US issues. He’s an ambassador, it’s not his place to play politics. Tweet

I found this laughable and quickly took it apart.

StopObama2012: Does not an Ambassador play politics? Tweet

StopObama2012: And yet he has made political statements, like blaming the USA for 9/11 Tweet

Here’s the story.

“I wouldn’t say that the United States deserved what happened, but the United States policies were an accessory to the crime that happened”

That’s well beyond criticism to me, and factually inaccurate.

The Response

Park51: Well Kissinger did. But I don’t think that’s the role of inter-country outreach. Tweet

StopObama2012: Oh and refusing to condemn Hamas as a terrorist organization, just like you Tweet

Because that also, is a political statement, or non-statement if you will.

StopObama2012: An Ambassador is a political position, your dancing in circles

Park51: I don’t think he blamed the USA, but he may have questioned historical policy decisions tweet

You saw the above video, you tell me. Ahh and then they get testy.

Park51: What is your point? We pick a moderate and he has to pass your grain of sand test? How fair is that? Who would you nominate? tweet

Lets see, he wants to see America more Sharia compliant, won’t condemn terrorist organizations, and hold’s American policies responsible for 9/11. Doesn’t sound very moderate to me.

StopObama2012: Ahh spin. The point is that neither he, nor you are moderate, or you would have sought a different location in the first place tweet

StopObama2012: And you would also condemn all terrorist organizations and acts of terrorism carried out in the name of Islam tweet

Ohh your really going to love the answer

Park51: So in your mind, it our place to issue blanket condemnations of any group you deem unworthy? #thatsfair Tweet

I was under the impression that not just I, but the State Department as well, had condemned them as a Terrorist Organization

Why yes, here they are in a State Department Report:

From December 27, 2008, through January 17, 2009, the IDF conducted a major military operation in Gaza.  Israel and Hamas, a State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization that violently seized power in Gaza in June 2007, declared separate truces to end the fighting.  Occasional small clashes continue to occur along the border.

How about that. Guess I just didn’t pick and choose, huh.

StopObama2012: Are terrorist Organizations worthy?? Hamas, Hezboallah? Are they worthy? Al-Shabab? Need more? tweet

StopObama2012: See, here’s your trap, you say you are a moderate in the religion of peace, yes? Yet you refuse to condemn those that act with violence in it’s name Tweet

There has yet to be a response. If I recieve one I will update this post. Suffice to say The organization behind the Ground Zero Mosque is not “Moderate.”

While not openly “Radical” They clearly will not take a stand against, or condemn radical behavoir. It really is a simple question. If you ask me if I condemn the KKK I would reply, “Hell Yea”, “Of course”, and “Everyday and twice on Sunday.” Yet they refuse to condemn known terrorist organizations.

There are many questions left unanswered by this organization, such as how can a man, that was a waiter in 2002, get 4.8 million dollars cash to pay for it in 2006?

More on the background of the Imam from PJTV:

And from Hannity

I call for an investigation into this Mosque’s Imam and the organization, most importantly, follow the money. Something is being hidden and need’s to be brought to light.
