Obama:Screw Easter,Happy Ramadan!

Ben Johnson,The White House Watch

When he was elected president,Barack Obama expressed his desire to
“fundamentally transform America.”On an economic level,that explains his plans
to siphon wealth from productive citizens to the indolent,entrepreneurs to union
thugs,and Main Street to Wall Street (and 142nd Street). Spiritually,it means
redistributing respect from America’s majority religion to every splinter
religion in the world’s pantheon. Although he could not be bothered to write a presidential statement celebrating
Easter
or acknowledging the severity of the
Armenian genocide
,the president of the United States has publicly commended
Passover,Nowruz,Diwali,Eid-ul-Fitr,Hajj,and
Eid-ul-Adha.
(And he complains when no
one believes he is a Christian
.) He has praised the concept of umoja
(black racial unity) while celebrating the phony,racist holiday of Kwanzaa. Now,he would
like you to have a happy Ramadan. The president wrote….

Obama Faith Adviser, and Ayers’ Friend: American Freedom and Justice are “Myths”

Obama Faith Adviser, and Ayers’ Friend: American Freedom and
Justice are “Myths”

May 5th, 2011

Aaron Klein, WND.com

Obama’s faith adviser, Eboo Patel

President Obama’s faith adviser, Eboo Patel, blasted what he called the
“myths” of America – describing them as beliefs that the country is “a land of
freedom and equality and justice.”

Patel explained how he used the “faith-based movement” to channel his rage at
America “in a direction far more compassionate and far more merciful.”

Patel, a Muslim activist from Chicago, further implied that had he grown up
in the 1960s, he may have joined the Weather Underground terrorist group led by
William Ayers.

Like Obama, Patel is deeply tied to Ayers, WND has learned.

In February 2010, Obama named Patel to his Advisory Council on Faith-Based
and Neighborhood Partnerships.

Patel is the founder and executive director of Chicago-based Interfaith Youth
Core, which says it promotes pluralism by teaming people of different faiths on
service projects.

In a 2007
interview with NPR
to promote a book he wrote that year, Patel was asked
about his “affinity” toward the radicalism of Ayers, as described in the
book.

Patel replied that his own life story “is much closer to Bill Ayers,”
explaining he “grew up in the same hometown” that Ayers did.

Continued Patel: “I was kind of taught the same myths about America, a land
of freedom and equality and justice, et cetera, et cetera.”

“And then, when I got to college, I saw people eating out of garbage cans for
dinner, and I saw Vietnam vets drinking mouthwash for the alcohol, and I thought
to myself, this is not the myth that I grew up with. And, in a way, I was so, I
think, immature at that time politically, that all I could do was rage.”

Patel explained how he used religion to channel his rage toward America:

“And it was a faith-based movement that came into my life that kind of
directed that rage in a direction far more compassionate and far more
merciful.”

Obama’s faith adviser went on to say how he may have joined Ayers’ terrorist
group if he was around as an activist in the 1960s.

“One of the things that I write about in this book is, you know, had it been
one of the people involved in the Weather Underground, who were sitting at my
kitchen table when I was 18 years old and raging, my life could have been very
different,” he said.

“That I really thank God that it was a set of people who came into my life
with a very clear vision of justice. But a sense of justice emanating from
Divine Mercy.”

Patel has a much deeper relationship with Ayers than he admitted in the NPR
interview.

In 2005, he co-authored a book with Ayers’ adopted son, Chesa Boudin.

The book, Letters from Young Activists: Today’s Rebels Speak Out,
was co-written by several young radicals, including Ismail Khalidi, the son of
Columbia University Professor Rashid Khalidi.

Obama’s Homeland Security Dept. Promotes Al Jazeera

Obama’s Homeland Security Dept. Promotes Al
Jazeera

February 16th, 2011

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

National security has fallen so far under Barack Obama that a high-ranking
official in the Department of Homeland Security is berating American cable
companies for not carrying Osama bin Laden’s favorite television network.
Juliette Kayyem,
the assistant secretary for intergovernmental affairs at the DHS, wrote an op-ed
in the Boston Globe this week entitled, “Let
US See Al-Jazeera.”
(Capitalization in original.) In it, she rakes ign’ernt
Americans over the coals for not appreciating Al Jazeera English (AJE), the
Anglophone counterpart to Al-Jazeera. Kayyem writes that cable providers should
be “promoting engagement in the Arab world” by “bringing a major player in the
Arab world to American audiences.”
Typical of the Obama administration’s approach to all forms of conflict,
Kayyem wants America to step aside, promote Islamic interests, and hope our
enemies will reciprocate our selfless acts of goodwill. In this case, she wants
a major Islamic fundamentalist propaganda outlet beamed into 300 million infidel
homes. “AJE’s battle with the cable carriers is major news in the Middle East,”
she writes. Not carrying the network “sends a message to the Arab world.”
Although she reassures her readers, “Cable companies have no obligation to run
programming,” she warns that shunning AJE is “understood by the Arab world as a
value-laden decision about America’s lack of desire to hear from the Arab world
about the Arab world.”
There is the little matter of the Al-Jazeera’s famously close relationship
with terrorists and long history of….

Obama Praises “Teaching Tolerance for Islam,” Islamic Charter Schools

Obama Praises “Teaching Tolerance for Islam,” Islamic Charter Schools

December 27th, 2010

Suzanne Eovaldi, CoachIsRight.com

Our school children are facing Muslim indoctrination with “The 99″ project which is set to air in January with a 13 episode series on the Discovery Channel for Kids. President Obama praised this media event for capturing young imaginations by “teaching tolerance for Islam” at his recent Washington, D.C. Presidential Summit speech.

This new series is using animated adventure heroes to depict the 99 attributes of Allah in what the London Times (1) is saying “the show’s mission is to instill old fashioned Islamic values” into our Christian children.
Kathy Bright of the Bright Media network has developed (2) The Shield Bearer project to counter the Islamization of our children by using new God centered action heroes. “The 99″ project describes two Muslim heroes as Jabbar The Powerful: from Saudi Arabia and Widad The Loving: from the Philippines, while calling Darr The Afflicter: the United States role model.

Islamic charter schools

Another very troubling and similar trend is threatening to take over America’s charter school movement. “A secretive foreign network of Islamic radicals now operates dozens of charter schools which receive government money (3) but are not required to adopt a state approved curriculum” says reporter Stephen Schwartz….

Obama’s DoJ Promises to Keep Serving Muslim Interests

Obama’s DoJ Promises to Keep Serving Muslim Interests

December 13th, 2010

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

Here’s a measure of just how subservient our present leadership is to American Muslims: Attorney General Eric Holder is reassuring Muslim groups that the Justice Department will continue persecuting prosecuting their enemies after they “raised concerns” the feds were   unfairly targeting the Religion of Peace. The trouble, it seems, is that   the Justice Department keeps arresting Muslims trying to blow their   adopted country to Mahdi-come. According to TheBlaze.com:

Attorney   General Eric Holder reiterated his resolve to prosecute hate  crimes while standing behind the methods used in anti-terrorism cases  during a     speech Friday night before a Muslim advocacy group near San     Francisco.

Speaking to Muslim Advocates, a San Francisco-based   group, Holder    told the group that he’s heard from many Muslim and  Arab  Americans who    feel uneasy and singled out by law enforcement.

The   organization is one of several groups voicing concerns over   hate    crimes, alleged rights violations at the hands of law enforcement   and    the tactics used in anti-terrorism cases.

Carefully-crafted  sting  operations by FBI and Justice Department    officials have  included plots  against a Portland, Ore., Christmas    celebration,  Dallas skyscrapers,  Washington subways, a Chicago  nightclub   and New  York’s John F. Kennedy  International Airport.

(You can read more of Holder’s groveling here.) A patriotic Attorney General may have asked his hosts why it is the DoJ arrests Muslims, and only Muslims, ready to perpetrate religious violence against the United   States. He would have had the guts to challenge Muslims to assimilate   into the mainstream of the United States or enjoy their privilege of   living under their theocratic code of Shari’a law — in some country that follows it.

If Muslims in America paid greater allegiance to the United States than they do to the worldwide Islamic ummah, they would….

Germany Confronts the Failure of Multiculturalism

Germany Confronts the Failure of Multiculturalism

Posted By Jacob Laksin On October 22, 2010 @ 12:24 am In FrontPage

German Chancellor Angela Merkel ignited a political firestorm this past weekend when she pronounced [1] German multiculturalism a failure.

Addressing a youth delegation of her Christian Democratic Union Party, Merkel observed that in light of the widespread failure of immigrants, particularly Muslims, to integrate – whether by learning the German language or by adopting German cultural and legal norms – the country could have no illusions about the success of its so-called multikulti policies in assimilating immigrants.

“We kidded ourselves a while, we said: ‘They won’t stay, sometime they will be gone’, but this isn’t reality. And of course, the approach [to build] a multicultural [society] and to live side-by-side and to enjoy each other… has failed, utterly failed.”

Merkel added that the only solution was for immigrants to learn the language and to integrate into the dominant German culture.

As any mention of the untouchable issue of immigration tends do, Merkel’s comments elicited furious condemnation from the German and Left. The left-wing Tageszeitung dismissed her remarks as populist posturing. The Financial Times Deutschland insisted that such rhetoric “cannot be excused.” Still other critics charged that Merkel was stoking “xenophobia.”

Yet the most notable aspect of Merkel’s remarks is just how unremarkable they were. Indeed, the most compelling criticism of her public renunciation of multiculturalism is that it has come too late in Germany’s immigrant crisis.

That crisis dates back to the 1950s. At the time, vast numbers of foreign guest workers, or Gastarbeiter, were required to make up for the post-war labor shortage. In the years that followed, these migrant laborers were needed to fuel the country’s booming industrial economy.

If many of the contemporary problems of immigration and integration were not anticipated, one reason is that it was assumed these workers would return to their countries of origin. Initially, many did just that. Over time, however, fewer and fewer returned. Temporary guests became permanent ones, with the consequence that Germany is now home to some 16 million foreign workers out of its population of 82 million.

Not all of these foreign workers have failed to integrate into German society. Whether Russian or Chinese [2], many have learned German, found jobs, and become productive members of society even as they’ve retained the traditions and language of their native culture. An important exception, however, is Germany’s Turkish community, which at 2.5 million also happens to be the country’s largest ethnic minority. That community is also at the heart of many of Germany’s social, and increasingly, security problems. When Merkel talks about the utter failure of multiculturalism, this is what she has in mind.

The failure of German Turks to assimilate is a well-documented phenomenon. A 2009 study by the Berlin Institute for Population and Development found that even after 50 years and three generation in the country, Turks remained a people apart. They reside in what Germans have come to call “parallel communities,” a diplomatic term for what are in effect ethnic ghettos shunted off from mainstream German society. This exclusion exacts a heavy toll on new generations, many of whom do not know the native language. Reports of primary school classes where 80 percent of children cannot speak German are testimony to the seriousness of the problem.

Religion would seem to be one of the underlying reasons for the Turks’ persistent outsider status. Turks make up the majority of Germany’s 4 million Muslim residents, and despite the secular reputation of 20th century Turkey, there is abundant evidence that their brand of Islam has been in tension with German culture and society.

That is most evident in the contrasting levels of religious commitment. While Germany has followed the European trend toward secularization, its Turkish immigrants remain fervently religious. A 2006 study by the Essen Center for Turkish Studies found that 83 percent of Muslims of Turkish-origins described themselves as religious or strictly religious. And while German leaders have long toed the politically correct line that Islam is fully compatible with German ways – even the blunt-speaking Merkel has paid repeated lip service to the pluralistic cliché that Islam is a “part of Germany” – Turkish Muslims seem to disagree. Not only do nearly half of German Turks say that Islamic laws are incompatible with German society, but many live that way. Forced marriages and “honor” killings are two of the more prominent examples of Islamic practices clashing with German laws and culture. Even in death, many Muslim immigrants spurn integration. By some estimates [3], as many as 80 percent of Muslims have their bodies sent to their home countries so as to avoid a non-Muslim burial on German soil.

More and more, that clash of civilizations underlies a security concern in Germany. This August, German authorities finally shuttered the city’s Taiba mosque, a nursery of jihadist terror whose alumni included September 11 ringleader Mohamed Atta [4]. Just this week, German federal prosecutors arrested [5] 8 men, including a Turkish national, on charges of supporting al-Qaeda and spreading terrorist propaganda on the internet. Previous crackdowns on German-based jihadist groups have also netted Turkish Islamists. As a result, Germany is now on the international radar as a major base for jihadist terror. When the U.S. recently issued a travel alert for Europe, it specifically cited Islamists originating in Germany.

With the costs of multiculturalism’s failure so plain to see, it’s not surprising that many Germans are anxious about where mass immigration has led them. Merkel’s recent comments are only the latest crack in the politically correct “consensus” surrounding the taboo subject. In August, Thilo Sarrazin, a senior official at Germany’s central bank, published a book about the dangers of Muslim immigration whose theme was summed up in its provocative title: Germany Does Itself In. Sarrazin was forced to resign his position amid press furor, but his book continues to top Germany’s best-seller lists – a good indication of where the public’s sympathies lie. Another measure of the national doubts about the wisdom off immigration comes from a recent study, which found that one-third of Germans feel the country is being “over-run by foreigners,” while nearly 60 percent feel that Muslim religious practices should be “significantly curbed.” Elite opinion remains hostile to open discussion of immigration, especially Muslim immigration, but a growing segment of German popular opinion plainly feels that it represents a legitimate worry.

While this concern is encouraging, mirroring as it does Europe’s broader awakening to the issues of immigration and Islamic extremism, it is not altogether a heartening phenomenon.  For one thing, the growing alarm about the problem of Muslim integration coexists with a revived anti-Semitism. The same study that found Germans supporting restrictions on certain Islamic practices also found that 17 percent think Jews “have too much influence.” Another problem is that while it is becoming more acceptable to point out the failures of multiculturalism, no serious solution has been offered. Modest attempts at assimilation, such as language classes, are unlikely to overcome entrenched cultural and religious divides.

That will become an even bigger problem for Germany in the decades ahead. At 1.36 children per woman, Germans have one of the lowest fertility rates not only in Europe but in recorded history. Statistics on Germany’s Turkish community are sparse, but there is a consensus that comparatively they have many more children. If those trends hold, Germany likely will look very different in the not-so-distant future. Acknowledging that multiculturalism has failed may be a necessary first step to coping with the consequences of Islamic immigration. But it will not save Germany from that looming demographic predicament.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden explains what Obama has charged him with doing as the head of NASA.

Foremost on that list…?

“to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering”
Obama’s new mission for NASA?

Make Muslims feel good about themselves…

Guess exploring space by launching off of exploding tin cans at thousands of miles per hour wasn’t “cool” enough for Obama.
