Exclamation CAIR’s Pro-Terror Red Flags »

CAIR’s Pro-Terror Red Flags
An Islamist group’s deceitful game of support for terrorists and terrorist groups
by Joe Kaufman





Since the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR was founded in June 1994, while a handful of representatives from the group have been forthright in vocalizing their support for global terrorist organizations, the majority of the group’s hierarchy has worked hard to mask this support. One such CAIR operative, Affad Shaikh, has made and continues to make this duplicitous façade a large part of his life, blurring the lines of terror support by spouting anti-Western rhetoric and propagating terror-related fanatics.

Affad Shaikh is the Civil Rights Manager of CAIR-Los Angeles, the main chapter of CAIR-California. He has held this position since April 2006. Prior to that, he worked out of CAIR’s San Diego office.

During his time with CAIR, Shaikh has had his share of extremist activity. In September 2007, Shaikh mimicked lingo used by al-Qaeda, when he referred to American troops stationed in Iraq as “Crusaders.” And in July 2008, Shaikh was stopped at the U.S./Mexico border by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents, who accused him of plotting with others to assassinate then-President George W. Bush.

These things have not done harm to his standing within CAIR. To the contrary, given their nature, they most probably have enhanced his status with the organization. However, as radical as he is, he knows his limits, and these limits are reflected on the weblogs he is involved with.

On the top of Shaikh’s personal blog, This American Muslim, is found a cartoon boy holding two flags – one the Palestinian flag, the other the red Turkish flag – with what appears to be a rifle strap draped over his back. The boy, Handala, first appeared in a publication in 1969 and was created as a symbol of anti-Israel violence and, according to the artist, was a “rejection” of “the American way.”

Of course, placing the cartoon on his site was Shaikh’s way of defending the flotilla of six ships headed for Gaza from Turkey, last month, which Israeli troops boarded prior to being attacked by the ships’ passengers.

Reinforcing this point, on Shaikh’s Facebook page, on U.S. Memorial Day – which happened to land on the same day as the flotilla incident – he stated that, instead of celebrating the day as an American, he would rather be “an honorary Turk.” He then immediately posted a video on his Facebook page featuring the co-founder of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), Huwaida Arraf, whom he referred to as “the organizer” of the flotilla.

Did it matter to Shaikh that the group that bankrolled the flotilla, Insani Yardem Vakfi (IHH), is said to have ties to Hamas and al-Qaeda? Apparently not. However, this is understandable given the fact that Shaikh’s organization, CAIR, was established as part of Hamas, and so if IHH was connected to Hamas and was out to provide assistance to Hamas in Gaza, Shaikh can just be seen as protecting his group’s roots and interests.

And that’s the only way he could have been seen, when he made a comment on his site, earlier this month, regarding the World Cup soccer tournament, where, much like he did on Memorial Day, he spat on his nationality and stated his allegiance to his Palestinian brethren over that of his own country, the United States. He said, “Who are you cheering for? Italy? The United States of Americaaaaaaaa… ah, no, actually I am cheering for Palestine.”

This American Muslim is not the only troublesome blog Shaikh has been involved with. This past March, he admitted to launching the blog Muslamics four or so years ago. In fact, the site still lists him as a contributor.

On every page of Muslamics, there currently resides a link to the official website of Anwar al-Awlaki. This is the same Anwar al-Awlaki that was a confidant to various high profile terrorists, including Times Square bomber Faizal Shahzad, underpants bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and Fort Hood shooter Nidal Malik Hasan, who brutally murdered 13 American servicemen.

The link was up on Shaikh’s blog in January 2009, when al-Awlaki posted on his site his ‘44 Ways to Support Jihad,’ which urged Muslims to engage in weapons training and to fight the West. It was on Shaikh’s blog in November 2009, when al-Alwaki referred on his site to Nidal Hasan as a “hero.” And it was on Shaikh’s blog, when al-Awlaki called on American Muslims to attack their fellow Americans.

This is compounded by the fact that Shaikh, himself, has disclosed that he listens to lectures given by al-Awlaki.

While placing a link on a website or listening to a terror leader’s lectures on tape doesn’t constitute actual terrorist activity, it is a tacit way of supporting that activity without overtly proclaiming that support, especially when there’s an extremist history with the individual(s) involved.

Shaikh and many of his fellow colleagues at CAIR have skirted the edges of support for terrorists and terrorist groups by propagating anti-Western rhetoric and by showcasing that which is derived from those engaged in terrorism. This veiled defense of fanaticism allows CAIR to continue to exist in the United States as a legal entity, while at the same time allowing CAIR to prolong its radical activities.

Lightbulb AMERICAN POLICE are enforcing Shari’a (Islamic) Law in DEARBORNistan, Michigan



Four Christians were arrested and thrown out of a public Arab festival in Michigan for doing nothing more than engaging in peaceful dialogue and videotaping the event.

Shouts and cheers of “Allahu akbar!” we were all being led away from the festival in handcuffs.

In what can only be described as police enforcement of Sharia law at the annual Dearborn Arab International Festival, last Friday night Dearborn Police Officers arrested four Christian missionaries and illegally confiscated their video cameras which were recording the events surrounding their arrests. The Thomas More Law Center, a public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, today announced it is representing all of the Christian missionaries.

Arrested on charges of Breach of the Peace are: Negeen Mayel, Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, Paul Rezkalla, and David Wood. Mayel, an eighteen year old female, whose parents emigrated from Afghanistan and a recent convert from Islam to Christianity, was also charged with failure to obey a police officer’s orders. She was approximately 100 feet away and videotaping a discussion with some Muslims when her camera was seized.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, commented, “These Christian missionaries were exercising their Constitutional rights to free speech and the free exercise of religion, but apparently the Constitution carries little weight in Dearborn, where the Muslim population seems to dominate the political apparatus. It’s apparent that these arrests were a retaliatory action over the embarrassing video of the strong arm tactics used last year by Festival Security Guards. This time, the first thing police officers did before making the arrests was to confiscate the video cameras in order to prevent a recording of what was actually happening.

Qureshi and Mayel are former Muslims who are now Christians. Mayel’s parents emigrated from Afghanistan. Wood is a former atheist. All are from a Christian group called Acts 17 Apologetics. In the following video after the arrest, Qureshi said his group took “extra precautions” to prevent disruptions by not handing out pamphlets and to speak only to people “who first approached us”:


Qureshi said people at the festival recognized his group from its visit in 2009. Last year, the Acts 17 Apologetics team was escorted from the grounds while being allegedly assaulted by security personnel and several attendees.

Thompson continued, “Contrary to the comments made by Police Chief Ron Haddad, our Constitution does not allow police to ban the right of free speech just because there are some hecklers. Not all police officers approve of the way their department treated these Christians.”

Robert Muise, Senior Trial Counsel with the Law Center in charge of the case, yesterday faxed a letter to Chief Haddad demanding that the three video cameras and tapes illegally seized from the missionaries be immediately returned. No hating, no disturbing, no harassing… It remains only to be concluded that we were arrested simply for being Christian Preachers at the Arab Festival in Dearborn.

One witness named Steven Atkins, a resident of Toronto, Canada, said, I never thought I would see this in America.” Atkins added, “It’s becoming more restrictive here than in Canada.”

“When Dr. Qureshi was arrested I heard people clapping and applauding, and some said ‘Allahu akbar,’” he said. “It was an intense discussion, but it was not unruly. … There was no threat of violence.” ANSWERING MUSLIMS

Any person, who said that "Islam is a religion of peace" is either:

1. Dont do their homework well on Islam, its holy books and its teaching, or
2. Do know Islam well, but out of sanity decided to practice the "soft, tolerant Islam", or
3. Do know Islam well, but deliberately said the wrong thing about it to support certain purpose.

I study Islam well because I live in a country with biggest moslem population in the world...did that in an honest search for a true answer of the Universal questions. And I found the Qur'an and Islamic teaching is hilariously funny. And that's it.

Right.

I don't disparage George Bush for saying that Islam is a religion of peace, but do fault the media and left for failing to understand that it is like saying "nice doggy" to a pit bull while you reach for a stick to bash its head in.

Arrow Toronto Star's politically correct abetting of Islamic honor killing


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/06/ji...anti-femi.html


Dhimmi pseudojournalists abound. In "Toronto Star: Don't judge Karla Homolka. She loves her sister Tammy more than you do," June 22, the brilliant and courageous Ezra Levant righteously skewers the Toronto Star's politically correct abetting of Islamic honor killing:
Can you believe this disgusting man, comparing Aqsa Parvez's murder -- an "honour killing" because she refused to dress like a chattel owned by the males in her family -- to the heartwarming, light-hearted culture clashes in Bend it Like Beckham or Yiddish stories?
Honour killings? It's a problem every immigrant has! It's part of the great American dream, really!

Other than the 3% of Canadians who are Aboriginal, the rest of us are immigrants or children of immigrants. Have you ever heard of this sort of honour killing before, in our nation's 400-year history?

Or Coyle's claim that the 41-year age gap between father and daughter was the cause?

Is he serious?

Jim Coyle and the Toronto Star are racist. Abiding honour killings is racist. It's sexist. It's anti-feminist. It's precisely the thing the Star claims to be against. But they're not. They'd rather be politically correct than stand up for the rights of women and children.

They'd rather be politically correct than stand up for secular values like gender equality.

They'd rather be politically correct -- and for Aqsa Parvez to be dead -- than to offend Parvez's murderous brother and father.

Even after the murder is done, even as the grave was still fresh, the Star still clings to their bigotry.

And it is bigotry. Accepting this extreme, deadly misogyny is bigotry: the soft bigotry of low expectations. Jim Coyle and the Star don't think Muslims can be any better. They don't think they can hold them to higher standards. So they excuse and explain.

Arrow Sharia in Minnesota: free speech under fire as man faces hearing for "anti-Islam" pos

Sharia in Minnesota: free speech under fire as man faces hearing for "anti-Islam" posters



Dhimmi pseudo-journalist Dave Aeikins doesn't mention in this story that the attorneys in Benton and Stearns counties declined to file criminal charges against Elyea because they recognized that what he did -- no matter how obnoxious it may have been, and I have not seen the material he posted -- was protected on First Amendment grounds.

That fact in itself gives the lie to the St. Cloud City Attorney Matt Staehling's claim that he is being prosecuted only for violating the city's ordinance against posting items on city poles. Elyea's attorney says, "Our basic argument is, we live in a country where you should be able to say what you want. Even controversial statements about political or religious views are protected by the First Amendment." Staehling appears to be pandering to Hamas-linked CAIR and to the Muslim community in Minnesota, and catering to its distaste for the freedom of speech.

An update on this story. "Hearing set for Waite Park man who put up anti-Islamic posters," by Dave Aeikens for the St. Cloud Times, June 24 (thanks to Twostellas):
Sidney Elyea admits he did it. He posted those anti-Islam posters on utility poles near a Somali-owned business and the Islamic Center.

The city attorney says the Waite Park man violated the city's ordinance against posting items on city poles and should pay a fine. Elyea says he's being punished because people didn't like what he put on his posters. He was just exercising his First Amendment rights.

An administrative hearing this afternoon at the Lake George Municipal Building will be used to determine who is right.

It's an unusual case that stirred emotions when the graphic posters showed up around town in December. The St. Paul-based Council on American-Islamic Relations conducted a public forum to discuss their impact. The Stearns and Benton County attorneys declined to prosecute. In January, the city issued two citations to Elyea, saying he violated city ordinances prohibiting the posting of materials on city fixtures.

The fine for each civil citation is $250, and efforts to settle have been rejected by Elyea, whose lawyer says there is a constitutional principle at stake here -- that people have First Amendment rights even when most disagree with the message.

"Our basic argument is, we live in a country where you should be able to say what you want. Even controversial statements about political or religious views are protected by the First Amendment," said Ryan Garry, a Minneapolis-based criminal defense lawyer who is defending Elyea in the case....

The drawings contained explicit depictions of bestiality and sodomy, contained images of the Prophet Muhammad in derogatory positions and contained pictures and words offensive to Muslims in particular.

Garry argues that if Elyea had put up a sign about a garage sale or a lost kitten, his client would not have been cited.

St. Cloud City Attorney Matt Staehling said that is not case.

"I'm sure that is what they will argue; I think we have evidence to controvert that," Staehling said.

Staehling said the city occasionally hands out citations for violations of the city ordinance against hanging things on utility poles. This is the first time it has gone to an administrative hearing, he said....

He has received some support from anti-Muslim bloggers, but has not gotten any backing from the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota or any other group that often stands up for unpopular speech.
Apparently dhimmi pseudo-journalist Dave Aeikins believes it is "anti-Muslim" to stand up for the freedom of speech. How very interesting, and revealing.
Minnesota ACLU Executive Director Chuck Samuelson said he finds the case interesting, but his organization has not been asked to take part.
And you know, of course, that the ACLU always waits for an engraved invitation.
Samuelson said Elyea could win the case if his lawyer can show the utility pole ordinance is not being enforced evenly. "Our position is that, what Elyea did was protected by the First Amendment. I believe he has been treated differently than others have been treated in this situation," Garry said.

Samuelson said the government showed great restraint in not pressing charges for what was printed on the posters.

"The interesting thing, and I commend the county attorney for this, is not going after the topic directly. The government should not be involved in content, as reprehensible as it is," Samuelson said.

Arrow The West Implements the Humane Values of the Shari'a Better Than the Muslims

Saudi Preacher:
The West Implements the Humane Values of the Shari'a Better Than the Muslims



In an article published May 14, 2010 in the London daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, Saudi preacher Dr. Aaidh Al-Qarni wrote that the U.S. implements the values of Islam better than the Muslims themselves. To illustrate his point, he presented the example of a Saudi woman living in the U.S. who was abused by her husband and received no help from her family or her Saudi neighbors, but was rescued and helped by the U.S. authorities.

In a December 23, 2009 article, he wrote that many Arabs flee from persecution and poverty in their countries to find freedom and prosperity in the West, and called on the Muslims to stop cursing the West and start reforming their own countries.

Following are excerpts from translations of the articles published in the English edition of Al-Sharq Al-Awsat:

Arrow “I’ve never seen this level of ‘Islamophobia’ in America”





Terrorist Front Group CAIR’s spokesman, Ibrahim Hooper, just can’t understand why all over America, there seem to be more “Islamophobic” incidents than ever before. And even worse, the media aren’t covering these “hate crimes.



Maybe that’s because CAIR tries to make EVERY incident involving Muslims a hate crime or an act of terrorism. They’ve been bitching about this “terrorist bombing” outside a mosque in Jacksonville, FL for months now, even though it was more like a few firecrackers going off. And Muslims are famous for staging anti-Muslim incidents to get attention or FOR financial gain.”

Arrow Former director of Missouri-based Islamic charity pleads guilty: charity was part of

Former director of Missouri-based Islamic charity pleads guilty: charity was part of network funneling money to jihadists



Yet another Islamic charity turns out to be an engine of the jihad. Note also the involvement of the dhimmi former Congressman. "Former director of Islamic charity pleads guilty," by Mark Morris for McClatchy Newspapers, June 25:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The former director of a Missouri Islamic charity admitted in federal court Friday that he sent more than $1 million to Iraq in violation of U.S. sanctions.

Mubarak Hamed, 53, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy and a tax violation for misusing the charity's tax exempt status and lying to the Internal Revenue Service.

Hamed served as executive director of the now-defunct Islamic American Relief Agency-USA from 1991 until October 2004, when federal agents raided the charity's Columbia, Mo., offices and carted off truckloads of documents and computers.

The same day, the U.S. Treasury Department froze the charity's assets and said it was part of a global network of similarly named charities that supported terrorists, including Osama bin Laden, al-Qaida, the Taliban and Hamas.

U.S. Attorney Beth Phillips said in a written statement that the guilty plea represented a landmark moment in the nine-year criminal probe of the charity.

''Hamed compromised national security by secretly funneling more than a million dollars to Iraq,'' she said....

In pleading guilty, Hamed also admitted to a long string of facts in his plea agreement, many of which he and others had spent years denying. After contending that his charity was an entirely independent organization, he acknowledged Friday that it was part of an international organization headquartered in Khartoum, Sudan, that also used the initials IARA.

The African charity, according to federal officials, had frequent contact with the worst players in international terrorism.

Hamed also acknowledged that in 2001 he instructed an IARA spokesman to lie during a television interview, saying that a man who had purchased the satellite phone that al-Qaida used in the East Africa embassy bombings never had been employed by the Missouri charity.

In his plea agreement, Hamed acknowledged that he had personally hired the man to work in Columbia.

After a prosecutor read the factual recitation, U.S. District Judge Nanette Laughrey asked Hamed if the facts were true. Hamed hesitated for a moment and noted that he had not actually drafted the statement.

''I accept them,'' Hamed said.

''Well, they're either true or not true,'' Laughrey pressed.
''They're true,'' he replied softly.

Hamed is the third defendant to plead guilty in the case. In December, charity fundraiser Ahmad Mustafa pleaded guilty to arranging for the transfer of money from the U.S. to family members in his native Iraq.

Al Mohamed Begegni, a board member and the charity's treasurer, pleaded guilty in April to conspiring to violate Iraq sanctions.

Two remaining defendants are scheduled to begin what is expected to be a lengthy trial on July 6: Abdel Azim El-Siddig, the charity's vice president for international operations, and former U.S. congressman Mark Deli Siljander.

Siljander is accused of taking $75,000 from IARA to help the charity have its name removed from a U.S. Senate Finance Committee list of organizations that allegedly supported terrorism. Prosecutors contend that money had been stolen from a U.S. Agency for International Development grant that IARA was supposed to have used for relief projects in Mali, Africa.

Siljander has said the money from IARA was to have helped support his work on his book, ''Deadly Misunderstanding: A Congressman's Quest to Bridge the Muslim-Christian Divide.''
In his plea agreement, however, Hamed said that contention was ''utterly false.''

''Hamed never discussed with Siljander the writing of a book, and would not have spent $75,000 of IARA's funds for such a purpose,'' according to the statement.

Siljander served as a Republican member of Congress from 1981 to 1987 and later opened a Washington public relations firm. Lance Sandage, a lawyer representing Siljander, declined to comment on Hamed's plea agreement....

Exclamation Islamic hatefest should open Canadians' eyes, but it probably won't

Islamic hatefest should open Canadians' eyes, but it probably won't



A huge convention expected to attract 10,000 Misunderstanders of Islam to Toronto should wake Canadians up to the nature and magnitude of the threat they face, but it probably won't -- witness this very article, in which Licia Corbella hauls out the slippery and untrustworthy Tarek Fatah (I didn't quote that section below) and props him up against Zakir Naik and these 10,000 of Naik's fellow Islamic supremacists, as if the two opposing sides were equal in heft. "Islamist hatefest should open Canadians' eyes," by Licia Corbella for the Calgary Herald, June 26:
More than 10,000 people are expected to attend the Journey of Faith Conference in Toronto on July 2, 3 and 4. That may sound benign, but that fact alone should alarm this entire country.

The conference, sold as one of the largest Islamic conferences in North America, headlines speakers with such vile and repugnant views, that to repeat them almost smacks of satire and farce.

The big draw for the event was, until earlier this week, Dr. Zakir Naik, a popular Indian Muslim televangelist, who has -- thanks largely to the alarm raised by Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress -- been denied a visa to come to Canada.

Naik, billed as an expert on the Qur'an on the conference website, has said "every Muslim should be a terrorist," that gays and lesbians should be sentenced to capital punishment, that a man has the right to beat his wife, though he warned his devoted followers to avoid leaving a mark or hitting her on the face, and, surprise, surprise, he says that Jews are the "staunchest enemy" of Muslims. He is, ironically and comically, the founder of Peace TV. You couldn't make this stuff up. It's as Orwellian as, well, Orwell's 1984 in which the Ministry of Truth promoted slogans like: "War is Peace," "Freedom is Slavery," "Ignorance is Strength."

Despite being denied a visa to Canada and being banned from Britain where he was to attend a "Peace" conference there, Naik was still listed as the headline speaker on the event website until Friday morning and he dominates the benign-looking posters covered in Barbie-doll pink splashes of colour that are apparently still hanging in Toronto subway stations.

This is how he was described on the Journey of Faith website until Friday morning: "A medical doctor by professional training, Dr. Zakir Naik is a renowed (sic) international orator on Islam and Comparative Religion. Dr. Zakir Naik clarifies Islamic viewpoints and clears misconceptions about Islam, using the Qur'an, authentic Hadith and other religious Scriptures as a basis, in conjunction with reason, logic and scientific facts."

According to many Muslims, however, it is Naik and his ilk who reinforces misconceptions of Islamic viewpoints....
Yes. Except they never quite get around to explaining the exact nature of those "misconceptions," or to combating the influence of Naik and others like him among Muslims.
The conference organizers sought out Naik because he's considered an expert on the Qur'an and that's the theme for this year's event -- "The Holy Qur'an."...

Now, however, that the jig is up and his livelihood -- so reliant on the wilful blindness of the tolerant West -- is being jeopardized, Naik is saying his comments about terrorism were taken out of context. You be the judge. Here are Naik's exact words from a 2007 video: "But if you ask my view, if given the truth, if he (Osama bin Laden) is fighting the enemies of Islam, I am for him. If he is terrorizing the terrorists, if he is terrorizing America the terrorist, the biggest terrorist, I am with him. Every Muslim should be a terrorist." [...]

Saying repugnant things is -- and must be -- allowed in Canada. However, urging people to break the law by beating their wives, becoming terrorists and advocating the killing of gays and lesbians are not acceptable forms of speech. It's one thing to say, "I hate (fill in the blank)," and quite another to urge people to kill them.

And so it was right to deny Naik entry to Canada, but much of the rest of the show will go on. The only thing that could stop it is if no one showed up. If many people do, then the conference slogan, "Peace: the solution for humanity," is a smokescreen to attempt to keep the West blind to a dangerous ideological war that is raging before our very eyes.
Yep.

Arrow Calling the Ground Zero imam's bluff

Calling the Ground Zero imam's bluff
Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf wants us to believe that he is moderate, tolerant, peaceful, the whole nine yards. Pay no attention to the lies, the deceptions, the advocacy for Sharia, the blaming America for 9/11 -- no, none of it matters. He is for peace. He is for tolerance. He is for understanding. And so now, in a brilliant open letter, Pamela Geller calls his bluff. Taking his self-definition at face value, she calls on him to act upon it -- by canceling plans for an Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero.

"Dear Imam Rauf and Daisy Khan...............A Heartfelt Plea," by Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs, June 27:
Dear Imam Rauf and Daisy Khan, The remains of another seventy-two people were discovered on Friday not far from where you plan to build a thirteen-story Islamic center and mosque. Here we are, close to ten years after the largest jihadist attack ever to take place on American soil, and bodies, corpses, are still being recovered. Who knows how many body parts were found in the Burlington Coat Factory building when the landing gear crashed through all five floors? Thousands were never recovered. Their cemetery, their burial ground, is the area in and around Ground Zero.

Of course, as one of the leaders of the opposition to the painful and strangely thoughtless "Cordoba Initiative," my group SIOA will be pursuing legal avenues to stop or at least dramatically slow down the building of this mosque on the site that many consider to be a war memorial, while also staging mega-protests and sit-ins if and when construction begins, etc. But must it come to that?

You and I are New Yorkers. We are Americans, first. You, too, felt the devastating pain and anguish when the military arm of Islam (al qaeda) unleashed its attack on America on September 11th. The gaping hole at Ground Zero is a constant reminder of that terrible war.

Must we go legal? Must we stage more rallies with tens of thousands of Americans opposing the mosque? Can we not, as human beings, and in the interest of building bridges, mutual understanding and respect, implore you to reconsider your plans? I am sure your motivation to build bridges was a good one. But as you can see, it has had the opposite effect. The public outcry of millions of Americans make plain the wound that has been reopened and the terrible pain this is causing for families, for patriots, for Muslims of conscience. It is unbearable. This surely was not your intent.

Interfaith dialogue is a two-way street. I believe we should all be sensitive to each other. I don't see Muslims separately or apart, I see Americans. Period. Americans who love this country, and don't share the idea of "pure Islam" or "original" Islam that is found in Islamic countries. In many of the emails I receive, many Muslims understand the pain "Cordoba" inflicts -- not just the idea but the name itself (evoking Islamic conquest over the West).

I call upon your conscience, your goodness, your love of America, to move you to reconsider. More rallies will be staged -- tens of thousands will show. People might get hurt in a sit-in trying to stop the ground breaking of a mosque looking down on Ground Zero. Why? In the interest of building bridges?

Can we talk about this? Can we discuss this? Can the building have a church and a synagogue as well as a mosque? Or perhaps no mosque at all -- much the way community centers like the 92nd Street Y or the YWCA, to which you have compared your plan, don't have churches or synagogues.

As a man of the clergy, you must understand the pain this is causing for the victims who mourn their dead, for Americans who mourn their country's losses ........ You can not have wanted to create such sorrow.

What can we do to get you to withdraw this plan? Should we try to raise the money to release you from this tragic mistake? How can we help you? We want to work with you and do the right thing, build bridges and show each other mutual understanding and mutual respect. As a religious man, you would never mean to cause such overwhelming sadness and grief.

Imam Rauf, please withdraw this plan and show the world real understanding and kindness and empathy.

Sincerely yours,
Pamela Geller
Please sign this appeal to the Imam Rauf and Daisy Khan. Let them hear us.

Arrow CANADA: ISLAMIST HATE FEST was to have featured Dr. Zakir Naik


http://barenakedislam.wordpress.com/...e-a-terrorist/

Fortunately, the Canadian government denied Naik a visa this year. Still, more than 10,000 proponents of Shari’a Law are expected to attend the Journey of Faith Conference in Toronto, July 2-4.

That may sound benign, but that fact alone should alarm this entire country. The conference, sold as one of the largest Islamic conferences in North America, headlines speakers with such vile and repugnant views, that to repeat them almost smacks of satire and farce.

Dr. Zakir Naik, a popular Indian Muslim televangelist, who has — thanks largely to the alarm raised by Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress — been denied a visa to come to Canada.

Naik, billed as an expert on the Qur’an on the conference website, has saidevery Muslim should be a terrorist,” that gays and lesbians should be sentenced to capital punishment, that a man has the right to beat his wife, though he warned his devoted followers to avoid leaving a mark or hitting her on the face, and, surprise, surprise, he says that Jews are the “staunchest enemy” of Muslims.He is, ironically and comically, the founder of Peace TV. You couldn’t make this stuff up. It’s as Orwellian as, well, Orwell’s 1984 in which the Ministry of Truth promoted slogans like: “War is Peace,” “Freedom is Slavery,” “Ignorance is Strength.”


Despite being denied a visa to Canada and being banned from Britain where he was to attend a “Peace” conference there, Naik was still listed as the headline speaker on the event website until Friday morning and he dominates the benign-looking posters covered in Barbie-doll pink splashes of colour that are apparently still hanging in Toronto subway stations.

The conference organizers sought out Naik because he’s considered an expert on the Qur’an and that’s the theme for this year’s event — “The Holy Qur’an.”





Now, that the jig is up and Naik’s livelihood — so reliant on the wilful blindness of the tolerant West — is being jeopardized, Naik is saying his comments about terrorism were taken out of context. You be the judge. Here are Naik’s exact words from a 2007 video: “But if you ask my view, if given the truth, if he (Osama bin Laden) is fighting the enemies of Islam, I am for him. If he is terrorizing the terrorists, if he is terrorizing America the terrorist, the biggest terrorist, I am with him. Every Muslim should be a terrorist.”

So, naturally, it’s a huge relief that Naik isn’t allowed into the country, right? Not at all, says Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, which fights Islamism.The other lecturers slated to speak — while not as high profile — are a pretty scary bunch as well, with no less repugnant views about homosexuals (they should be killed), Jews (they are “filth” and should “go to Hell,”) and Americans (they are terrorists).



“Every participant in the event is guilty of endorsing gay-bashing, Jew-hatred and the second-class status of women,” explained Fatah on Friday. “These young men and women may not be the infantry of the worldwide Islamist jihad against humanity, but they are certainly its cheerleaders and are playing the role of termites undermining the foundations of Western civilization.”

Saying repugnant things is — and must be — allowed in Canada. However, urging people to break the law by beating their wives, becoming terrorists and advocating the killing of gays and lesbians are not acceptable forms of speech. It’s one thing to say, “I hate (fill in the blank),” and quite another to urge people to kill them. Calgary Herald

Arrow Muslim FBI informant ostracized by Muslim community in U.S.

Muslim FBI informant ostracized by Muslim community in U.S.
One would have thought that the Vast Majority of loyal, patriotic American Muslims would celebrate Mahmoud Omar as a hero. Why don't they? Why does a man who helped the FBI against jihadist say, "I lost my people. I lost my religion"? And why don't authorities ask that question, and seek answers to it? "From star FBI witness to ostracism, loss," by George Anastasia for the Philadelphia Inquirer, June 27:
This is not the way Mahmoud Omar thought things would play out.
Omar, the Egyptian-born FBI informant who was the key prosecution witness in the Fort Dix terrorism trial, is sitting at the kitchen table in his two-bedroom apartment trying to make sense of what has happened to him.

He has an eviction notice for overdue rent, an application for welfare, a foundering export business, and an uncertain immigration status.

The South Jersey apartment is sparsely furnished. There is little food in the refrigerator.

Omar is living week to week, sometimes day to day, with his American-born wife, Jessica, who grew up in Maple Shade, and their two children, a daughter, 6, and a son, 3.

"How can this be?" he asks, his eyes flashing anger, dismay, and disappointment. "It was a good case. I help. Now I have what?"

His heavily accented voice trails off. "Nothing."

Chain-smoking cigarettes, Omar, 41, was talking publicly for the first time about his experience as an informant enlisted by the FBI as its point man in the Fort Dix investigation, and about the impact the case and its aftermath have had on his life.

Eighteen months after a federal jury in Camden convicted all five defendants, the star witness is unsure of his future and has doubts about his past. [...]

"I lost my people," Omar said during one in a series of rambling interviews over the last month. "I lost my religion. And I can do nothing about it."

Unless you come from his culture, he said, it is almost impossible to understand what that means.

For Omar, his ability to function in America was built around a network of friends, relatives, and associates in the Muslim community.

That network, he said, no longer exists for him.
He has been ostracized because of what he did.
No matter, he said, that the five men he helped convict were accused of plotting to kill American soldiers. In a twisted way, he said, their actions are understandable in the Muslim community.

"For Muslims, we are all brothers, and I betrayed a brother," he said.

Omar does not go to a mosque anymore, he said, because he knows he will not be welcome.
No one had told him that. But, he said, touching his chest, "I know in here."

"Muslim people don't believe these kids did anything," he said. "And they are never going to believe it. They don't want to believe it." [...]

To many of them, he said, he is a traitor.
Back in this country, relatives and former business associates want nothing to do with him.

"The people I did business with are gone," he said. "They say, 'You made your choice. You helped the American government. Why should we help you? Let the American government help you.' " [...]
The Inquirer hauls out a dhimmi professor who blames the U.S. for Omar's ostracism by the Muslims:
William Granara, a professor of Arabic studies at Harvard University, said it appeared Omar was experiencing a "conflict of loyalties" not uncommon in the immigrant experience. But for many Muslim immigrants, it is intensified because of "the sense of disempowerment and alienation" that the community feels.

That, Granara added, might explain how some Muslims would look at Omar and say, "How can you do this at a time when America is treating us this way?" [...]
What way, exactly? At a time when America is making you freer, more prosperous, and safe from physical danger than you would be in virtually any Muslim country on earth?

Exclamation US Islamic Leader Accuses Jews of 'Anti-Black' Behavior

CHICAGO — Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan has written the leaders of more than a dozen major U.S. Jewish groups and denominations seeking "repair of my people from the damage" he claims Jews have caused blacks for centuries.

Farrakhan sent the letter along with two books from the Nation of Islam Historical Research Team that the 77-year-old minister said prove "an undeniable record of Jewish Anti-Black behavior," starting with the slave trade and Jim Crow laws.

"We could charge you with being the most deceitful so-called friend, while your history with us shows you have been our worst enemy," he wrote.
Farrakhan has long accused Jews of wrongdoing in speeches, but he has rarely addressed Jewish groups so directly in writing.

The Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights group which distributed copies of the letter, said in a statement Tuesday that Farrakhan's "anti-Semitism is obsessive, diabolical and unrestrained. He has opened a new chapter in his ministry where scapegoating Jews is not just part of a message, but the message."

In the letter, dated last Thursday, the Chicago-based Nation of Islam leader said he sought a dialogue with Jews. He sent the letter to groups including the Orthodox and Reform movements, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and the American Jewish Committee, a New York-based advocacy and humanitarian nonprofit that spearheads inter-religious dialogue.

"This is an offer asking you and the gentiles whom you influence to help me in the repair of my people from the damage that has been done by your ancestors to mine," he writes. "Your present reality is sitting on top of the world in power, with riches and influences, while the masses of my people ... are in the worst condition of any member of the human family."

In the past, Farrakhan's most inflammatory comments have included referring to Judaism as a "gutter religion" and calling Adolf Hitler "wickedly great." Recently, he has railed against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which he claims is conspiring to trap the U.S. in a war with Iran.

Farrakhan echoed similar comments last Saturday in an Atlanta speech titled, "Who Are the Real Children of Israel?"

He did not respond to several messages seeking comment Tuesday. Farrakhan has over the years denied claims of anti-Semitism, arguing his remarks are often taken out of context and that criticism of Jews in any light automatically earns the "anti-Semite" label.

Did he do the right thing?

Would he do it again?

What, if anything, does the government owe him?

Are he and his family collateral damage in the war on terror, cast adrift in a bureaucracy that has done little to acknowledge his contribution?

Or is he facing the predictable consequences of his own actions, a Muslim caught in a cultural and ethnic no-man's-land, unable to return to his roots, yet out of place in American suburbia?

"I lost my people," Omar said during one in a series of rambling interviews over the last month. "I lost my religion. And I can do nothing about it."

Exclamation Extremist Conference in Chicago »

Extremist Conference in Chicago
Islamic radical group Hizb ut-Tahrir to hold second event on July 11
by Ryan Mauro





Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamic extremist group working for uniting the world under Sharia law, is scheduled to hold its second annual conference on July 11 at the Chicago Marriott Oak Brook. The theme of the event is, “Emerging World Order: How the Khilafah Will Shape the World.” The organization has chosen the home of President Obama, the leader of the free world, to pursue its anti-democratic agenda by taking advantage of the freedoms it seeks to vanquish.

“HT recruiters use religious language to pull the confused Muslim youth to their side in an effort to undermine American democracy. The danger of this conference is that it legitimizes HT as a mainstream organization and allows it to further spread its hate-filled message that divides Muslims and non-Muslims,” Zeyno Baran, a Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute, told FrontPage.

Hizb ut-Tahrir has accurately been described as “a conveyor belt to terror” by Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, the moderate Muslim leader of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Although the group condemns terrorism and doesn’t publicly support violence, several of its members have gone on to become major terrorists, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

The group may not embrace the tactics of Al-Qaeda but their goals are the same. Hizb ut-Tahrir’s first conference in the U.S. was held last year in Chicago and was titled, “The Fall of Capitalism & the Rise of Islam.” It was attended by between five and six hundred people, and one speaker openly called for throwing out the U.S. Constitution and putting Sharia law in its place.

Although Hizb ut-Tahrir has condemned the 9/11 attacks and has been criticized by Al-Qaeda, this does not make them moderate. They support violent jihad overseas, praising Palestinian suicide bombers as “martyrs,” calling for the destruction of Israel, and supporting those fighting non-Muslim soldiers in Muslim lands. Footage has been found of the group’s leaders supporting militants in Kashmir and Chechnya and leaflets have called on Muslims to fight Coalition forces in Iraq.

Hizb ut-Tahrir does not openly support terrorist attacks in Europe, but its top official in the United Kingdom refused to condemn the 2005 London bombings. He said that he’d only “condemn what happened in London only after there is the promise from Western leaders to condemn what they have done in Falluja and other parts of Iraq and in Afghanistan.” A book by one former leader says that non-Islamic government leaders should “either retract or be killed.” The group’s Facebook page links to a sermon by Anwar al-Awlaki, a high-level Al-Qaeda member believed to have been tied to the Fort Hood shooting, the Christmas Day underwear bomb plot, and actively planning further attacks.

The group is much less restrained outside of the United States. In Indonesia, where the group has held well-attended conferences, they are demanding the stoning and caning celebrities who appear in sex tapes and want regulation to bring the Internet into accordance with Islam. The group calls upon those in power to “break down the total current system and replace it with Islamic sharia.” The HUT coordinator of a protest that numbered about 1,000 said that those that don’t perform abstinence should be publicly caned 100 times and adulterers should be stoned to death. The organization’s Facebook also links to an article attributed to their Pakistani branch calling on the Pakistani army to aim its nuclear weapons at Israel and overthrow the government so a caliphate can be created that will “remove the Jewish state.”

Zeyno Baran told FrontPage that Hizb ut-Tahrir doesn’t need a huge level of support in order to promote its ideology.

“HT does not need mass support–it aims to have support from people who are established and with influence in their communities, such as doctors, engineers, politicians etc.,” she said. “Moreover, many of HT’s ideas…have over time become mainstream Islamist ideas.”

Hizb ut-Tahrir has a three-stage plan to implement Sharia law. They first build a branch in the targeted country. They then begin an outreach effort to try to recruit as many Muslims as possible. Once a base of support is created, they begin pushing for the implementation of Sharia law. Contrary to Al-Qaeda, HUT moves incrementally and takes into account its weaknesses. The late founder of the group called for building a single country to encompass all Muslims which would then be able to spread its version of Islam to the non-Muslim world.

The text contained in a journal that used to be published by HUT members reinforces these points. The December 1995 issue says that “Jihad is impossible…without an organized military machine….The Islamic state must form an army capable of offensive attacks. The army is an integral part of delivering the message of Islam to the world.” Another issue says Muslims must “annex all the Islamic wilayah (provinces) stretching from Europe to China. Let us then see the U.S. try to meddle in our affairs.” The goal of HUT is to build and expand a state and become stronger until it can conquer further. This pragmatic mindset is why HUT has made the decision not to promote violence in the United States and to moderate its language and behavior in the West.

Hizb ut-Tahrir is a sophisticated group with a long-term, phased approach towards achieving its goals. The attendance of their last conference by 400-500 Muslims show they are making some inroads into the Muslim community. In terms of winning converts and influence, they seem to be doing a better job than Al-Qaeda. The residents of Illinois need to be aware that their city of Chicago is being used as a platform by Islamic extremists to more efficiently accomplish what Al-Qaeda has been unable to. They are at the forefront of a battle to bring Sharia law to the United States.

Arrow Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America forbids Muslims to aid American troops in Afgha

Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America forbids Muslims to aid American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq
For to do so would be "helping others in sin and transgression."

The Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America says on its website: "AMJA recognizes that human brotherhood is the basic principle that should govern the relations between all peoples and nations. Therefore, the pursuit of peace and goodwill between all nations should be a desirable objective for all members of the human family. In this light, AMJA rejects any ideology or effort that aims to put the United States of America and Islam in conflict." Apparently it intends to achieve this goal by making sure that U.S. troops cannot achieve anything in Islamic countries.

Expect Honest Ibe Hooper of CAIR to issue a thundering denunciation of this forthwith. Honest Ibe?

"US Muslim jurists forbid aid to aggressive troops," from Iran's Ahlul Bayt News Agency, June 30:
The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) issued a fatwa prohibiting offering aid to foreign troops in Muslim countries whether on the personal or the business levels. The assembly, made up of jurists and scholars in charge of issuing fatwas for Muslims in the United States and headed by Sheikh Salah al-Sawy, received several inquiries about the stance of Islam on business deals with coalition troops in Iraq or NATO forces in Afghanistan, especially companies that transfer foodstuffs and other supplies to military bases.

The question was posted on AMJA fatwa bank, reads: "Is it permissible to participate in taking food to the American and foreign soldiers working in Muslim lands?" and the answer is, "That would not be permissible, for that would be helping others in sin and transgression."

The fatwa, number 3062 to be issued by the assembly, stipulated that Muslims are not to help foreigners on personal or business basis as long as their presence in Muslim countries is linked to occupation....

"Muslims should help anyone involved in benevolent acts regardless of their nationality, religion, or political affiliation and whether they are civilians or soldiers."

This, the fatwa added, is not the case with foreign troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and which are occupying those countries against the will of their people and, therefore, engaging in any type of interaction with them endows their presence with legitimacy and makes those who deal with them accomplices in the crime.

Question HIDDEN AGENDA behind NYC MUSLIMS’ demand for two Islamic school holidays





WHAT THEY SAY:“It’s about fairness. Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the city, so why shouldn’t we have our holidays recognized?”WHAT THEY MEAN:“Crucial to Muslim advancement and the ultimate goal of making Islam dominant in America is the establishment of Islamic institutions.”

Fundamentally, this (institutional establishment) means building the masjids (mosques), schools and civic centers that will teach, guide and socialize this segment of the ummah. Unfortunately, there have been several recent campaigns seeking to halt Muslim progress on both these fronts.


The Coalition of Muslim School Holidays, the organizational body that’s headed this campaign, is holding a rally at City Hall to put added pressure on the mayor. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the most Muslim-friendly dhimmi in the country, who has the final say on which holidays are approved, said “No, we need more school days, not less. Establishing more holidays would encourage every religious group to demand that their holy days be recognized.”

One member of the Coalition spoke at the masjid I attended for jumua prayer and he called on the members of the community to come support this effort for, to paraphrase, last time something like this was held, there were more Jews and Christians than Muslims. On the other hand, though, the fact that this campaign is getting widespread non-Muslim Leftie support bodes well for the future of Islam in America.

Muslim Matters
Muslims groups here are pressing city officials to close public schools on two of the faith’s holiest days, just as schools do for major Jewish and Christian holidays. Muslim groups have asked the city to cancel classes on Eid Ul-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, and Eid Ul-Adha, which marks the end of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.


“This city is supposedly the most diverse city in the world. The city’s laws and rules have to reflect that,” said Councilman Robert Jackson, a Muslim from the borough of Manhattan. “I am hoping that pressure from the Muslim community will help Mayor Bloomberg decide, in the best interest of himself politically, to incorporate these two holidays.”Wall St.Journal

Arrow Ignoring the fact that many Jews fought and died for blacks in the fight for civil ri




Nation of Islam’s Screwy Louie Farrakhan blames Jews for financial ruin of blacks.


Farrakhanis a vulture, a vampire who drains the life out of the very people he claims to lead. He destroys and makes a meal of his own people. And he in no way represents decent, hardworking Black America.

Imagine if the American black community had the leadership of Martin Luther King instead of this devil who wants to keep his people uneducated, dependent, angry anti-individualists and anti-capitalists. He is the worst kind of demagogue, sacrificing his own to advance his own evil ambitions.

And Obama counts him as a friend. A White House in decay. Martin Luther King would spit in the face of Louis Farrakhan and kick him to the curb where he belongs with the rest of the filth. Perhaps this is the only way for a soulless, evil wannabee to get his sullied name into the papers.



Farrakhan claims Jews for centuries have worked to financially undermine Black people. Disgusting. Radical Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan sent a letter to Jewish leaders asking them to repair the damage they have caused blacks for centuries.




Washington Examiner reports: Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan has written the leaders of more than a dozen major U.S. Jewish groups and denominations seeking “repair of my people from the damage” he claims Jews have caused blacks for centuries.

Farrakhan sent the letter along with two books from the Nation of Islam Historical Research Team that the 77-year-old minister said prove “an undeniable record of Jewish Anti-Black behavior,” starting with the slave trade and Jim Crow laws.

“We could charge you with being the most deceitful so-called friend, while your history with us shows you have been our worst enemy,” he wrote.
Farrakhan has long accused Jews of wrongdoing in speeches, but he has rarely addressed Jewish groups so directly in writing.

The Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights group which distributed copies of the letter, said in a statement Tuesday that Farrakhan’s “anti-Semitism is obsessive, diabolical and unrestrained. He has opened a new chapter in his ministry where scapegoating Jews is not just part of a message, but the message.”
