Allowing Ellison to run for office is the exact equivalent of allowing a practicing Nazi to run for office here in the US. What are we thinking?

4 November 2006: “Who is our most dangerous enemy? What is the biggest threat to the United States?”

I get asked these two questions quite a bit.

The answers to both questions are close to the same. We, the United States are our biggest enemy to ourselves right now and we are also our own greatest threat. This is because of the disastrous and self destructive way we are handling the threat of Islam.

We are partitioned in this country into two large groups. Those who are dedicated to the preservation and security of this great nation, realizing what it takes and what great sacrifices must be made and then the other group, those that want what deceivingly appears to be the easiest path, are willing to back down to the threat of Islam and think that if we ignore terror and embrace Islam, that terrorism will magically go away. The latter group is placing this country in a precarious position.

This country is in a serious predicament at this precise moment in history. We are being inundated with an all out assault by Islam on multiple fronts. We are fighting this radical cult-like theology on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan while we face the infiltration of our way of life right here in the United States. We are allowing Islamic political organizations to not only infiltrate law enforcement but to dictate policy to our law enforcement agencies although the greatest threat we face is Islamic terrorism. That’s right folks they dictate policy to the very agencies charged with protecting us.

We are allowing Muslims to run for political office which grants them even more power to bring about the downfall of this country. As Islam infiltrates our judicial, legislative and executive branches these bastions and effective tools of Freedom and Democracy will deteriorate in favor of the very religion that has sworn to bring this great country down.

You need to remember a very important statement by the leader of al Qaeda Osama bin Laden who warned us in Arabic and in our own language that Islam would destroy America using our own laws and freedoms against us. He openly warned us and we still don’t take that simple warning seriously. We act as though there is “Good Islam” and “Bad Islam.” Read the Qu’ran, it is all Islam.

For instance, this idiot Ellison shouldn’t even be on the ballot for one simple reason. You cannot serve the interests of the American people and defend the US Constitution while being a true Muslim and following Islamic doctrine. This country stands for freedom and democracy while Islam demands submission, no freedoms and preaches hate, dissent and murder of the very people he is supposed to serve in office. This is the greatest political anomaly of our present time. It defies logic in every aspect. Allowing Ellison to run for office is the exact equivalent of allowing a practicing Nazi to run for office here in the US. What are we thinking?

You do not have to be a genius or a scholar to look around your world and see that anywhere there is Islam there is death and destruction. Look closely at how disastrous the combination of trying to implement and encourage American values of Freedom and Democracy with Islam, Sunni and Shi’ite into one government. It doesn’t work. It leads to death, destruction, mental and emotional slavery and fear. It has to be one or the other as there is no middle ground. There cannot be a compromise between our upstanding western values and those derogatory beliefs of Islam because they directly conflict with each other.

• We believe in freedom of religion, Islam teaches its followers to refuse to co-exist with other religions

• We believe that the people have a say in the government and the ability to vote, improve and change what they don’t like in the system, Islam states that Sharia law will govern the people and the country

• We as Americans love life, true Muslims desire death for themselves and others

• We believe that races and cultures have a right to exist, Islam calls for the elimination of an entire race of people, the Jewish people

• We believe in the power of negotiations, Islam demands submission

• We treat our women with love and respect with equal rights and privileges, Islam sees them as possessions with no more value than a farm animal

• We allow Muslims to worship in their mosques, in Islamic countries Christian churches are burned, Christians are murdered at will in the street

I can go on and on as to the pitfalls of this Islamic disease. The problem is that we as Americans are allowing this death like cult to “force” its way into our society, into our government and most are not aware of the huge price tag that this country will pay by allowing this to continue. The price tag is death.

Before some jerk emails me and calls me a racist I want to make this real clear to everyone. Before September 11, 2001 I didn’t have a real problem with Islam and Muslims. Since that day when those nineteen Islamic murderers came into our country with a direct assault on our country and our citizens, rejoiced over it, condoned it and wished that more death had been achieved, that is when I took a real issue with Islam and everything related to this worldwide fascist revolution.

Islam’s rhetorical defense of what happened on 9/11 is no defense. We were not in Iraq and Afghanistan on September 11, 2001. The old standby terrorism justification excuse of “The plight of the poor people of Palestine” is pure crap as they bring all their troubles on themselves. The Palestinians have openly stated that they refuse to co-exist with Israel and anything that resembles pursuit of negotiations on that subject is an exercise in futility.

We were buying the Middle Eastern products, we stopped the genocide of Muslim people in Bosnia and many, many decades ago we taught the Muslims countries how to get the oil out of the ground and into the market place so their countries could prosper and we could buy oil. We have fed Muslims, provided medical care to Muslims and provided Muslims with technology so they could become self sufficient and viable countries in the world. We made you.

Even that horse’s ass Osama bin Laden wouldn’t have had his $200,000,000.00 fortune if not for western influence, dollars and technology. His money came from his family’s construction business, which resulted from the oil business which resulted from western technology. He has no justification for his actions and he is a disgrace to his “Allah”.

That is just one of the many hypocrisies of Islam. Islam throughout history has bitten the hand that fed it. So why in the world would anyone want to assist Islam is their quest to destroy our country and why would anyone think that they will not continue to bite the hand that feeds them? They bring absolutely nothing of value to the political structure of our democratic society with their suicidal ways, refusal to co-exist with others and hate for all mankind that isn’t Islam. They have nothing to offer as the dominating force they are trying to be in our country. We as a country have enough of our own problems even as a democratic society without the poison of Sharia law infiltrating the system. There is not one ounce of proof of anything positive that has been offered by Islam to this country to date.

Islam doesn’t ask to be accepted and co-exist, they insist on not only being accepted but they are trying to change our way of life to fit their theology of Nazism.

You want to be a Muslim in my country, that’s fine. Be a Catholic, be a Protestant, Mormon, Buddhist, Hindu or an atheist. Be like others here. Do your thing. Worship your prophets as you will, worship your God. Feel free to start your own churches, drink the kool-aid all together on that last day. But do not try to take over my country because I do not want you, your “religion” or your Sharia law in the dominant position here. We are Americans, we co-exist, we communicate, we make decisions on how we will live. We answer to our God and versions of God in our own ways. We are comprised of Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, Buddhists, Hindus, and multiple variations within those religions. We all have one thing in common. We are not conspiring to kill fellow Americans and overthrow the US government as we all have found a beautiful place of coexistence between our religions. That place is the United States of America.

Do it the right way, the peaceful way and fit into our land of opportunity for all man, into our gracious, open society or get out. If you are leaving, today would be good.

Here’s an additional piece of advice. Don’t vote Republican or Democrat.

Vote American.

Prince Charles misrepresented by Kuwaiti News Agency

Yesterday I posted a Kuwaiti News Agency report that claimed of Prince Charles: “He said that clash of civilizations could be averted by following the teaching of Islam and Quraan.”

Here (thanks to Jean) is what he really said. You will nowhere find the sentiments expressed in the KUNA report. I apologize for passing on the KUNA report without finding the text. It seems that KUNA is following the time-honored tradition that created the myth of Islamic tolerance and the idea that Islam is a religion of peace: when the facts don’t suit you, make something up.

Here’s the actual speech

A speech by HRH The Prince of Wales at Fatima Jinnah University, Pakistan, 31st October 2006

Vice-Chancellor, Ladies, and even the occasional Gentleman, thank you Vice-Chancellor for your marvellously kind words, and I apologise to you that my wife and I have taken you so much by surprise. For all those students that don’t do so well in your forthcoming exams, you can always blame my unexpected visit. You won’t be the first!

You can have no idea how much my wife and I have looked forward to visiting your country. For various reasons it has taken me very nearly fifty-eight years of my life to reach this remarkable part of the world, about which I have read and heard so many fascinating stories. Believe it or not, I think I was probably conceived in the months following independence for the Sub-Continent and therefore I feel I have somehow grown up, as it were, with both Pakistan and India. Above all, I have always wanted to experience and to understand the depth of the historic ties between our two countries.

Of course, you know better than I, that understanding requires willing partners. It also requires knowledge and a lack of prejudice. It is the importance of understanding and knowledge which has brought my wife and myself here today. This University clearly imparts knowledge to the highest standards. It is a heartening example of understanding between communities and, above all, between faiths. This understanding is not, of course, a new phenomenon. One could draw examples from Islamic Spain or from Ottoman Turkey. But one need not look so far afield to find examples of equal, or, perhaps, greater relevance. In this ancient part of South Asia, back in 1875, Syed Ahmed Khan founded Aligarh College to provide a modern education, principally to Muslims (men and, later, women), in a manner which encouraged them to play a full part in the national mainstream. The first graduate of the College was a non-Muslim.

Later in our visit to Pakistan, I shall have the honour of laying a wreath at the Tomb of Allama Mohammed Iqbal. That great poet – a graduate, incidentally, of my old Cambridge college – was familiar with both the Western and Islamic philosophical traditions and, of course, benefitted from both. He saw so clearly the importance of understanding between faiths, drawing out the central truth that “Religion does not teach us to harbour enmity amongst us.” This is why I find it so hard to believe those who assume some inevitable conflict between faiths and civilisations. The temptation is there. It always has been. But there is no obligation to succumb to it. Indeed, in both our countries we set our face against it; but we must at all costs guard against this assumption turning into a self-fulfilling prophecy. That would be the greatest tragedy for mankind.

Understanding is, of course, the foundation of the relationship between Pakistan and Britain today. We are linked by our history, by our communities, and by our common interests – in this region, and more broadly across the World. Ours is an enduring relationship, founded on mutual trust and respect. It is not just a relationship between leaders, but an unusually strong partnership between our peoples, strengthened by ties of trade, family and faith. It is also reinforced by the outstanding contribution made to the U.K. by those who have come from Pakistan to make their home with us; those who came all the way from Mirpur and Jhelum and Gujrat and who found themselves settling in Bradford, Leicester, Manchester and London. The support of the British public – led by those of Pakistani descent, through the remarkable effectiveness of Islamic Relief and other humanitarian agencies – together with the British Government in response to last year’s earthquake was nothing short of magnificent. My wife and I will be visiting the earthquake zone later this week, to see at first hand something of the reconstruction work and how those shattered communities are rebuilding their lives.

Now, looking about me, I have a feeling that you, all the very high powered, very intellectually gifted ladies, will have an important role to play in Pakistan’s future. The world is in desperate need of people who have moral courage; who are not afraid of standing up for truth and fairness and civilized values – especially at a time in the world’s history when ignorance and prejudice are so prevalent and so dangerous. Religion has once again become a source of conflict and intolerance. But one of the tasks of education must surely be to engender the acquisition of wisdom. And wisdom tells us that all the great religions provide a different path to the ultimate source of Truth – as if we were all stationed at various points around the circumference of a circle and following separate radii that lead to the sacred centre.

Do you remember the famous eleventh century proverb about the blind men feeling the elephant when “each conceived a visionary whole and to the phantom clung with heart and soul?” At the end of the day “Each had but known one part, and no man all, Hence into deadly error each did fall.” Personally, I have the greatest respect for the inner meaning of Islam and for that of the other great religions. I respect the different approaches to the profound mystery of ultimate knowing. So can we not begin to understand that the outward forms of each religion – although very different – are the diverse manifestations of that inner journey to the sacred centre?

In a secular age you hear again and again the accusation that religion is the cause of so much misery and strife in the world. However, religion itself is not the problem – it is surely human misinterpretation of the sacred texts handed down to us that can lead to such appalling misunderstanding and hatred. A too literal reading of the texts, for instance, can so easily obscure the inner, symbolic meaning contained within them. As Jalaluddin Rumi put it so perceptively – “He who hears the inner voice within him has no need to listen to outside words.”

Incidentally, when I was roughly your age we had a Prime Minister in Britain called Harold MacMillan. He was a remarkable man with an immense knowledge of the sweep of history. According to him there was a Professor of Moral Philosophy at Oxford when he was there as a young man who used to greet his new students with the following – “Nothing that you will learn in the course of your studies will be of the slightest possible use to you in later life – save only this – that if you work hard and intelligently you should be able to detect when someone is talking rot, and that, in my view, is the main, if not the sole, purpose of education!”
I believe that wise leadership is crucial; hence the importance of your role in the future. Will you, for instance, have the moral courage to stand up against the kind of mistaken and misguided leadership that can so easily set one community against another?

Will you have the wisdom and the understanding to recognize that it is a re-discovery of the universal message contained in all the great religions that can help to lead us out of the overwhelming environmental crisis that threatens to engulf our world?

This planet’s survival will depend on you understanding that you can achieve unity through diversity; that you can in fact build on living, timeless traditions that are a part of your unique culture and still be “modern”. It will also depend on you realizing that the planetary crisis we face is so profound in its rapidly developing consequences that we simply cannot afford to go on squabbling amongst ourselves while we destroy the world around us at a truly terrifying rate. As it says in the Qu’ran – “Only they pay attention who have hearts; only they believe (or see signs) who have hearts.” Have you seen the signs? Will you trust in what your hearts are telling you?

 

Six Arab states join rush to go nuclear The spectre of a nuclear race in the Middle East was raised yesterday when six Arab states announced that they were embarking on programmes to master atomic technology.

Six Arab states join rush to go nuclear

Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, UAE and Saudi Arabia seek atom technology

The spectre of a nuclear race in the Middle East was raised yesterday when six Arab states announced that they were embarking on programmes to master atomic technology.

The move, which follows the failure by the West to curb Iran’s controversial nuclear programme, could see a rapid spread of nuclear reactors in one of the world’s most unstable regions, stretching from the Gulf to the Levant and into North Africa.

The countries involved were named by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Saudi Arabia. Tunisia and the UAE have also shown interest.

All want to build civilian nuclear energy programmes, as they are permitted to under international law. But the sudden rush to nuclear power has raised suspicions that the real intention is to acquire nuclear technology which could be used for the first Arab atomic bomb.

“Some Middle East states, including Egypt, Morocco, Algeria and Saudi Arabia, have shown initial interest nuclear power primarily for desalination purposes,” Tomihiro Taniguch, the deputy director-general of the IAEA, told the business weekly Middle East Economic Digest. He said that they had held preliminary discussions with the governments and that the IAEA’s technical advisory programme would be offered to them to help with studies into creating power plants.

Mark Fitzpatrick, an expert on nuclear proliferation at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, said that it was clear that the sudden drive for nuclear expertise was to provide the Arabs with a “security hedge”.

“If Iran was not on the path to a nuclear weapons capability you would probably not see this sudden rush [in the Arab world],” he said.

The announcement by the six nations is a stunning reversal of policy in the Arab world, which had until recently been pressing for a nuclear free Middle East, where only Israel has nuclear weapons.

Egypt and other North African states can argue with some justification that they need cheap, safe energy for their expanding economies and growing populations at a time of high oil prices.

The case will be much harder for Saudi Arabia, which sits on the world’s largest oil reserves. Earlier this year Prince Saud al-Faisal, the Foreign Minister, told The Times that his country opposed the spread of nuclear power and weapons in the Arab world.

Since then, however, the Iranians have accelerated their nuclear power and enrichment programmes.

After November 7: Jihadists 1, U.S. O?

After November 7: Jihadists 1, U.S. O?

Every day the website RealClearPolitics.com summarizes the results of various public opinion polls in the current Congressional races. Unless all the tea leaf readers are off base, it looks like a Democratically-controlled House next January and perhaps even the Senate in their hands.

The Democrats have capitalized on public discontent with the war in Iraq. While the American public supports successful offensive efforts by our military, it can abide lack of clear success only so long. More of our soldiers are killed while Iraqi militias blow up thousands of their fellow citizens. Despite brave pronouncements, the Iraqi politicians are either unwilling or unable to stop the slaughter. Progress is at a standstill, or so it seems.

Irony will play a large part in the events of early 2007 if the Democrats gain Congressional control. With the public sour on our Iraq involvement, the Democrats will do all in their power (meaning, cutting off the money) to withdraw our troops a.s.a.p., thus making success impossible and defeat the world’s reading of their actions.

Iraq will then slip into full-scale chaos; Syria and Iran will rejoice; al Qaeda will say “I told you so” (i.e., that when the going gets tough, the Americans don’t have the stomach for it); and North Korea will continue to be the one-stop shopping mall for terrorist arms purchasers.

George Bush understands, as the Congressional Democrats do not, that the radical jihadists have twisted the Koran’s meaning to reinforce their belief that the world will be perfect when all the infidels — non-Muslims plus Muslims living in secular states — are disposed of. Then, with the Caliphate once again established in Baghdad and its clerics ruling on all matters, the world be peaceful and all its inhabitants equal.

That is why the radical jihadists have no hesitation killing as many Muslims as it takes to achieve this perfect state. Mary Habeck, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies, puts it succinctly: “They say that they are committed to the destruction of the entire secular world because they believe this is a necessary first step to create an Islamic utopia on earth.”

The Congressional Democrats would do well to read up on the intellectual tablet-bearers of the jihadists, such as Ahmad ibn Abd al-Halim ibn Taymiyya (1263-1328l); Muhammed ibn Abd al Wahhab (1703-1792), father of Wahabbism; Muhammad Rashid Rida (1865-1935); Hasan al-Banna (1906-49). Sayyid Abul A’la Mawdudi (1903-79); and Sayyid Qutb (1903-66), the latter being the chief source of inspiration for al Qaeda’s Number Two man, Ayman al-Zawahiri. If the Democrats were to understand how these purists drive the persecution complexes and conspiracy theories of today’s radical jihadists, they would be better able to understand the nature of the war in which we are engaged and actually deal with it with clear heads.

From Crusades to cartoons, the radical jihadists see history as one long series of Muslim humiliations to be avenged. Disengagement from Iraq will not end the troubles with the jihadists; it will only intensify them.

Oh, and by the way, the Democrats once in control, will raise taxes on “the rich” — anyone making about $50,000 a year and up; however, we may not be able to notice it, inasmuch as we will be up to our eyeballs in an epidemic of terror attacks here and around the globe.

Cheapskate Kerry

Cheapskate Kerry
By The Prowler
Published 11/3/2006 12:08:36 AM

That flushing sound you hear up on Martha’s Vineyard is the political future of Sen. John Kerry being pumped out to sea after the week he’s had.

First, he takes bad advice from his Democrat colleagues and operatives and plays to the loony lefty MoveOn types in California. Then he refuses to apologize on camera and instead insults most every viewer who tuned into watch (“Let me make it crystal clear, as crystal clear as I know how: I apologize to no one…”). Then he kind of apologizes for people being too stoopid to understand his high-falutin’ humor. And he does it off camera.

Now comes word that Kerry faces a very public spanking from the likes of Howard Dean and former running-mate John Edwards. This latest broadside is the result of Kerry’s refusal to dole out any large percentage of the $14 million that remains in the Kerry-Edwards ’04 campaign war chest to Democrat candidates this election cycle.

Kerry’s tightfistedness comes at a time when the DNC has essentially taken out a second mortgage to the tune of $8 million-plus to compete with Republicans on media buys and get out the vote programs. Edwards is said by some advisers to have called Kerry and warned him that he intends to go public with criticism of Kerry’s cheapskate ways over the weekend, an event that would bury any final hopes Kerry has of running with even a modicum of success in ’08.

“This is money that Edwards was instrumental in raising for the team. It isn’t John Kerry’s money to hoard for a rainy day,” says a former Edwards Senate staffer, who continues to advise the former North Carolina senator. “If we lose next week, a lot of it falls on Kerry’s head. Frankly, he lost the campaign for us two years ago, and he’s done a lot this time around to damage our chances in some highly competitive races. Because of him, we’re pouring money into races we shouldn’t have had to.”

 

Is Islam inherently violent? — New blockbuster, ‘Religion of Peace?,’ reveals disturbing facts

Is Islam inherently violent?
New blockbuster, ‘Religion of Peace?,’ reveals disturbing facts


Posted: November 2, 2006
1:00 a.m. Eastern


© 2006 WorldNetDaily.com It’s the secret question in official Washington, D.C., in the Pentagon, and in the White House. It’s the question that is so radioactive that most in government and the press dare not even pose it, let alone answer it:

Is Islam inherently violent and expansionist?

In the days following 9/11, President Bush assured America and the world that Islam was a “religion of peace” and that the violent followers of Osama Bin Laden had twisted the true Muslim faith. Acting on this belief, President Bush and other Western leaders sent troops to the Middle East in an effort to bring freedom and democracy to the Muslim world.

But what if this “understanding” of Islam is based not on fact, but instead on equal parts wishful thinking and Islamic deceit? It would mean that the entire War on Terror is based on a faulty – and increasingly deadly – premise.

(Story continues below)

In a disturbing but thoroughly researched new book, “Religion of Peace? Islam’s War Against the World,” author and filmmaker Gregory M. Davis rebuts the notion that Islam is a great faith in desperate need of a Reformation. Instead, he exposes it as a form of totalitarianism, a belief system that orders its adherents not to baptize all nations, but to conquer and subdue them. Islamic law’s governance of every aspect of religious, political and personal action has far more in common with Nazism than with the tenets of Christianity or Judaism.

Davis details how Islamic thought divides the world into two spheres locked in perpetual combat: There’s dar al-Islam (“House of Islam,” where Islamic law predominates), and dar al-harb (“House of War,” the rest of the world). This concise yet thorough book leaves no doubt as to why most of the world’s modern conflicts are connected to Islam – and calls into question why Western elites refuse to acknowledge Islam’s violent nature.

Virtually every contemporary Western leader has expressed the view that Islam is a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name are fanatics who misinterpret its tenets. This widely circulated claim is false, says Davis.

As the author and filmmaker wrote in WND recently:

The mistake Westerners make when they think about Islam is that they impose their own views of religion onto something decidedly outside Western tradition. Because violence done in the name of God is “extreme” from a Western/Christian point of view, they imagine that it must be so from an Islamic one. But unlike Christianity, which recognizes a separate sphere for secular politics (“Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s”), Islam has never distinguished between faith and power. While Christianity is doctrinally concerned primarily with the salvation of souls, Islam seeks to remake the world in its image. According to orthodox Islam, Sharia law – the codified commandments of the Quran and precedents of the Prophet Muhammad – is the only legitimate basis of government. Islam is in fact an expansionary social and political system more akin to National Socialism and Communism than any “religion” familiar to Westerners. Islamic politics is inevitably an all-or-nothing affair in which the stakes are salvation or damnation and the aim is to not to beat one’s opponent at the polls but to destroy him – literally as well as politically.

Davis received his Ph.D. in political science from Stanford University and is managing director of Quixotic Media and producer of the feature documentary, “Islam: What the West Needs to Know.”

Relying primarily on Islam’s own sources, “Religion of Peace? Islam’s War Against the World” demonstrates that Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures and systems of government. Further, it shows that the jihadis that Westerners have been indoctrinated to believe are extremists, are actually in the mainstream.

“Religion of Peace? Islam’s War Against the World” is a powerful and jarring wake-up call to all civilized nations – and one they ignore at their peril.
