MICHIGANISTAN: Roseville Board of Education VP Alfredo Francesconi is under fire again by designated terrorist group CAIR for posting the ugly truth about Islam


http://www.candgnews.com/news/rosevi...in-posts-97736

http://www.barenakedislam.com/2016/1...h-about-islam/


Meriam Uppal, who identified herself as a Muslim Roseville High School alumna who no longer lives in the district, emailed the Eastsider to bring attention to the posts that she called “Islamophobic, racist (what ‘race’ is Islam?) and xenophobic.”


CandG NEWS (http://www.candgnews.com/news/rosevi...in-posts-97736) After the Roseville Board of Education meeting Nov. 21, the email and pictures posted were brought to Francesconi’s attention. “I read them, and I agreed with them and I retweeted (shared) them,” said Francesconi.

The posts were dated Nov. 10, 11 and 19.

On Nov. 11, Francesconi shared “Christian, Conservative, Patriot and Not Afraid’s” photo of President-elect Donald Trump with his hands in the air and the caption reading, “No I’m not going to kill the gays, make slavery legal, and take away women’s rights. I’m not a Muslim.”

Francesconi shared two photos on Nov. 19. The first was from “Conservative Post” and shows the World Trade Center being destroyed on 9/11 with the caption, “How did we go from this to being afraid of offending Muslims?”



The second post that Francesconi shared Nov. 19 is a photo with four boxes reading, “Number of Jewish terrorist attacks since 9/11 — Zero; Number of Christian terrorist attacks since 9/11 — Zero; Number of Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11 — 26855. Not all religions are the same.”


“The vice president of the Roseville school board has a history of making such outlandish and racist posts. Our primary concern is the signal this gives to the district and especially students,” said Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Walid spoke out against other Francesconi posts in 2013 and 2015. “I’m concerned about the Muslim and American children in this district. We have a man with a leadership position in the school that is making anti-Muslim posts that are also false. That’s where the concern is,” said Walid.

In 2013, Francesconi was forced to remove a anti-Muslim terrorist Facebook post. The post depicted the three victims killed in the Boston Marathon bombings and read:


“This issue is greater than just me having a difference of opinion from Mr. Francesconi,” Uppal said in an email to the Eastsider. “We hold our teachers and staff to a higher standard. If a member of the faculty were to say some of the things that he says on his page in public, or in private for that matter, we would expect them to face consequences. As the vice president of the Board of Education, the very board that hires teachers, why shouldn’t he be held to that same standard? How can we expect fair and impartial decisions on hiring personnel, student expulsions, etc., when someone like this is openly biased?”

“If Mr. Francesconi does not resign by the next school board meeting on Dec. 5, I do plan on holding a protest at this meeting,” she said in the email.

Roseville school board President Theresa Genest said, “He is a great board member, but his beliefs are his beliefs, and everyone else has their beliefs. It was brought to his attention, and we’re sorry about that if it offended anybody; it was not his intention by any means,” said Genest.

Exclamation What About the Cultural Imbalance?

What About the Cultural Imbalance?
by Nonie Darwish


November 29, 2016
https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/9...ural-imbalance


If we do not demand equal cultural access, such a cultural imbalance will result in one side absorbing the values of the other, while keeping the Islamic nation "pure" and free of any outside influence. This one-sided cultural tyranny is forcing us, the American citizen, into tolerating intolerance while never expecting anything more aligned to Western values from the Muslim world.

As soon as Muslims form a small community inside a Western nation, they immediately deny access to any kind of Biblical preaching or education inside their community, but at the same time apparently feel entitled to demand access to preach the Koran in American prisons and spread Islamic culture and values in American schools.

If Muslims finance Islamic Studies departments on American campuses and teach Islam in our public schools, the same rights must be awarded to Americans. It is true there are a few American schools in the Middle East, such as the American University in Cairo, but these schools are forbidden from having departments of Biblical Studies.

If Muslim governments and citizens have full access to build mosques in America, America must insist on having the same access in their countries. That is not the fault of Muslim countries, so much as it is the fault of Western "multiculturalism," which expects nothing and is adhered to only by Western nations.

If such one-sided access of Islam into the West continues, while other religions in Muslim communities and countries are considered by them illegal "hate crimes," Western culture and the values of free will and religious freedom will atrophy and die. Islamists are counting on Western inertia to win.

Similar to the often-mentioned trade imbalance, there is a large imbalance Western nations and Muslim nations that is hardly ever mentioned: the cultural imbalance.

Muslims have access to build mosques in the West, yet give no access to the West to build churches or synagogues in Muslim countries. Muslim governments finance "Islamic Studies" and "Middle East Studies" departments in almost all major American universities, but will not allow Christian Studies or Judaic Studies departments at any university in the Muslim world. They freely preach Islam everywhere and consider it their right. But not one Muslim country legally permits Christian missionary work, and those few missionaries who dare to try are harshly punished, imprisoned or killed.

As soon as Muslims form a small community inside a Western nation, they immediately deny access to any kind of Biblical preaching or education inside their community, but at the same time apparently feel entitled to demand access to preach the Koran in American prisons and spread Islamic culture and values in American schools.

Exclamation The ISIS Threat In Our Midst And A Plan For Victory.

SEBASTIAN GORKA:
HOW WE DEFEAT THE GLOBAL JIHAD
The ISIS Threat In Our Midst And A Plan For Victory.
By Frontpagemag.com



http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2649...rontpagemagcom

Below are the video and transcript to Sebastian Gorka's speech at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s 2016 Restoration Weekend. The event was held November 10th-13th in Palm Beach, FL.


Sebastian Gorka from DHFC on Vimeo.


Sebastian Gorka: Thank you so much. I'm accused by many people of being the most serious man on television. Today it might be a little bit different. I'm in a little bit of a different mood, but I'm going to start with something a tad naughty, if you want to indulge me. We are happy, right? We are happy. But I'm going to show a picture I'm not meant to show usually. But here we go anyway. We can win now. I'm here to talk about defeating Jihad. That's the title of my book, and I'll start with one very simple explanation of why I wrote that book. I wrote that book because I have the honor, the inestimable honor, to work with our military, with our special forces, our marines, the cream of the crop, the best of the best, and I'm angry because for 15 years we have been losing this war. We have the best of the best, and they have not been allowed to win. And I'm going to talk to you today about what it will take to win.

Before I do that, I want to tell you a story. When I was asked to write a book – "Defeating Jihad" is my first book – I thought, "Well, this is easy." I eat, drink and sleep this stuff. My wife, Katie, is an expert on Jihad as well. Our pillow talk is the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda. Don't worry, it's okay. So, I thought I'm just going to sit down. I'm going to dive right in. I'm going to write about what I do for our war fighters, what I teach them in the class, how to understand the enemy, the A-Z of national security and counterterrorism. When I told my wife, she said, "Are you crazy? I mean don't you want to sell books or we just want to sell them to wonks? You just want to national security experts? I said, "No, I'd like some people to read it." So, she gave me some very sage advice, and this is to all you budding authors out there: If you want the people to read your book, especially Americans, you must have a good story. You have to connect. You may be the smartest guy or gal out there, multiple PhDs, been there, seen it, got the T-shirt, but if you cannot connect with the reader, it's just a book. So, I did something different. The introductory chapter to my book seemingly has nothing to do with counterterrorism, but it's a story that is the only thing everybody who's read the book wants to talk to me about. So bear with me while I share with you a story.

Imagine a 15-year-old young man. It's 1945, and he is walking through the rubble of his beloved city where he was born and raised, Budapest, the capitol of Hungary. In the last 5 years, he has witnessed the horrors of World War II himself as a young boy. Now he's walking through a city in which every bridge over the Danube has been blown. People don't realize the siege of Budapest was the longest siege in World War II, longer than Stalingrad. Out of every five buildings in that beautiful city three have been bombed into dust. So he stood there looking at the apocalyptic vision, but he had hope. Why did he have hope? Because he heard on the wire that the great men have brought peace in a city called Yalta, and at Yalta those great men had signed a document, and that document not only would stop the fighting. It would permit for the rebuilding of Europe. And for his country and a country where the Soviet troops were now occupying, the Yalta treaty guaranteed those nations like Hungary free and democratic elections. They would be allowed to choose their path to independence after the cessation of hostilities. So the young man had hope, but that hope was of course dashed.

In the next three years as he grew to maturity, he witnessed the Soviets and he witnessed the puppets of the Soviets, the Hungarian communists, swallow up that country as they did with all the countries behind what would be the Iron Curtain. If you resisted the communists, you would be intimidated. If you persisted to want freedom and independence, you would be beaten up, and if you still carried on, you would be arrested, imprisoned, or simply murdered by the secret police. The author had been betrayed. Hungary had been betrayed. Millions had been betrayed. So what did this young man decide to do? He decided to resist at the ripe old age of 18, but not with a gun, not with a bomb, but covertly, subtly. He started school, started college, and he identified around him a handful of like-minded Christian patriots that wanted to resist the communists, and he created an underground resistance movement that would collect sensitive information about what exactly the Soviets were doing in Hungary, the troop movements, how they were gobbling up strategic industries. And they'd collect that information, and they'd surreptitiously send it out to the West, to free a government that could use it to help the Hungarians. And they did, for several months, using literally like a John le Carré novel, using invisible ink on otherwise very anodyne letters to the West. They sent their intelligence, and the intelligence landed at an intelligence service of one of the great nations, the United Kingdom. An MI6 became the final destination for those reports, so some good could be done. The UK would help us, right? Because they're the mother of democracies. Little did they know. Little did they know. Those young men were supplying intelligence data to MI6, and at the end of the reporting line was none other than Kim Filby.

Kim Filby, if you know your Cold War history, was one of the five Cambridge apostles, the deadliest traitors to Western civilization during the Cold War, men recruited at Cambridge and Oxford by the KGB to work their way into the highest echelons of British government and betray the West. So what did Filby do as he did with numerous patriots across the Iron Curtain region? He collected intelligence, and once he could identify everybody in the group, what did he do? He blew them all in to the KGB and the Hungarian communists. As a result, this young man at the age of now 20 was arrested by the secret police, tortured, and given a life sentence for being a patriot and a lover of freedom. What does this have to do with anything about the threat to America today? Everything, and it's in the book because that young man, that 15-year-old boy, standing in the ruins of Budapest, was my father, Paul Gorka.

My father spent 6 years in a communist prison, two years in solitary. Not two months, two years. Two years in a prison coal mine where each prisoner – hold on to your seats – without machinery or explosives was required by the communist wardens to break ten tons of anthracite off the coal face every day. But, a few years later, in the cold, cold autumn of 1956, something happened that was monumental. Not as monumental as Wednesday morning, but monumental. The group of young Hungarian students and manual laborers, believe it or not -- quite a coalition, think about Wednesday. Yeah? Think about the blue-collar rural vote. Some students and some manual laborers decided to have a demonstration in Budapest, the silent demonstration. That silent demonstration devolved into the first freedom fight against communism, the October revolution of 1956, 60 years ago this year. As the result of that revolution, my father was liberated from prison by a revolutionary commander who had captured a Soviet tank. He escaped to the West with the daughter of one of his fellow prison mates, the 17-year-old girl called Susan, of whom his prison mate had said to my father in jail, "If you ever get out of this prison alive, please take my daughter to the West," and my father, who thought he was going to die in prison, said to him, "Yeah, sure, whatever, I'll take your daughter out to the West." Well, now, he was free, so he had to keep his word and so he did. They escaped under a train across the minefields to Austria, to a refugee camp, and eventually to the United Kingdom, and that is how I am here today. Born in the UK, raised to Hungarian parents, but now a proud American. So, why do I tell you the story? The only thing people want to talk about in my book. Because of the following:

When those two planes flew into those skyscrapers 15 years ago on that beautifully blue sky Tuesday morning, I looked at that event somewhat differently I think from my fellow Americans. Why? Because, yes, it was Jihadi terrorism, absolutely Jihadi terrorism, but more importantly that event was linked to communism. It was linked to fascism. Why? Because Al-Qaeda, ISIS, all of these groups are all totalitarians. They don't worship Karl Marx and the working class. They don't worship an Aryan nation in a 1,000-year reich, but they are totalitarians because they will brook no compromise. Either you surrender to them or they will kill you. And for me, that event was the rekindling of totalitarian threats to America, and it was a reinforcement of what the great Ronald Reagan said so perfectly when he told us, "Remember the loss of freedom is always but one generation away." I grew up, thanks to my parents, knowing in my blood, that liberty is as fragile as it is precious, and we are once again in a situation where we face a deadly foe who will not be negotiated with, and that foe is what I like to call the global Jihadi movement. So, let's have a look at what we all need to know as Americans at what it's going to take for the President we have elected to defeat our new totalitarian foe.

I'm going to share with you very quickly the conclusions of a report my wife and I did. My wife and I have a company called the Threat Knowledge Group. It supports our military and intelligence community and law enforcement, and we ran a two-year program for the Green Berets for the commanding general of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command. As a result of that project, we publish this analysis of ISIS. I have signup sheets here if anybody wants the original report. It is unclassified and we would be delighted to email you a copy, but let me just very briefly tell you why ISIS is much more dangerous than Al-Qaeda ever was. Very simply based upon four metrics that are indisputable.

No. ISIS isn't just a terrorist group like Al-Qaeda. It is a trans-regional insurgency. That's a technical phrase, but let me unpack it. The difference between a terrorist group and an insurgency is a terrorist is just a bunch of guys and gals hiding out somewhere. When they come out of hiding, they kill somebody, blow something up, and then what do they do is they go back into hiding. This is the Weather Underground. Yes, our friends Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn. This is the IRA. This is ETA. This is Baader-Meinhof. That's the ISIS. ISIS doesn't hide in safe houses. ISIS is an insurgency. An insurgency is marked by one metric. They have so many fighters that they operate in daylight, and they can capture territory, and they can hold it to include Mosul, the second biggest city in Iraq. ISIS today holds territory in Iraq, Syria, Libya, even Nigeria. Boko Haram is now a full affiliate of ISIS. Recently -- I'm not disclosing anything; it's a leak to the Washington Post -- when President Obama had a big powwow at the Pentagon 3 months ago, the National Counterterrorism Center briefed him on the extent of ISIS in the world today, and the map they used was leaked. You can Google it. NCTC, the highest intelligence organ in the U.S. dealing with counterterrorism, stated to the President of the United States, ISIS has today, and I quote, "18 fully operational affiliates around the world." Not sympathizers. Fully operational partner organizations. Why is this an issue? Two years earlier when the State Department gave the same briefing, it was seven. ISIS has gone from seven to 18 operational affiliates under the presidency of Obama in the last 2 years. That's his agency telling him.

Second, it is the richest threat group of its kind in modern history. If we look at non-state actors -- I'm not talking about the Soviet Union or Hitler's Third Reich -- if we look at organizations, nobody comes close to ISIS. The unclassified U.S. government estimates are that ISIS makes between $2 million and $4 million every 24 hours. Right? Illicit oil sales, racketeering, hostage taking. They even have their own IRS. Okay. Not as bad as Obama's, but they have their own IRS. So, between $2 million and $4 million every day. Let's get a grip on that. What does that amount of money mean? Well let's relativize it. If you read the 9/11 Commission report you will find that the original 9/11 attacks against America by Al-Qaeda cost less than $500,000.00. The whole operation from safe houses, student Visas, flight schools; the whole thing, $480,000.00. ISIS makes that in 6 hours. Not a JV team.

Third, perhaps the most impressive of all in just quantitative analysis is how many people they have recruited. Stunning. ISIS in its current form has only been around for a few years, but ISIS in that short period has recruited more than 85,000 Jihadists. Not sympathizers, actual Jihadi fighters, 85,000. What's even more impressive, of the 85,000, 36,000 aren't even Iraqis or Syrians. They're not from the war zone. They've been recruited from outside, and the scariest of all, of the 36,000 that are foreigners at least 6,000 are Westerners, Americans, Brits, Germans, people on the Visa waiver program of the U.S. State Department, who have freedom of movement. Incredibly impressive; however, the last one in yellow is the most important of all, and unfortunately it's the one we least discuss even inside the intelligence community, and it is the following:

On June 29, 2014, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, after his troops, his terrorists, had captured the second biggest city in Iraq, walked into the Grand Mosque of Mosul, climbed the steps of the pulpit, gave a sermon, and in that sermon, Abu Bakr declared the caliphate is now reborn. The Islamic Empire has been reestablished, and I am your new Caliph. I am the theocratic emperor of all Muslims. Now, why is this important? Because as everybody here knows, especially history buffs, the Caliphate isn't some crazy idea dreamed up in the febrile mind of some Jihadi in a cave somewhere. The Empire of Islam was a real entity for over 1,000 years, established in Mecca, then headquartered in Damascus, at the height of its power run out of Baghdad, and I like to remind people, at the height of its power consider this: The Islamic Empire, the Caliphate, stretched in territory from Spain to India. It was larger than the Roman Empire ever was, a real entity. But not only that, less than a 100 years ago at the beginning of the 20th century, what happened? There was still the Caliphate. It wasn't run by Arabs out of the Middle East, and we didn't call it the Caliphate. We called it the Ottoman Empire, but the Ottoman Empire was the latest iteration of the Islamic theocratic empire.

But what happened to the Ottomans? Well in 1914, they put their money on the wrong horse, and when 1918 rolled around, they were in trouble. They were on the losing side of World War I. And to prevent themselves being cut up into little pieces like the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, what did they do? A very handsome, charismatic Ottoman officer called Mustafa Kemal, who we now know as Atatürk, decided to secularize his nation. He became the first president of the Turkish Republic, said, "We are all Muslims, but Islam can have nothing to do with politics. Therefore, I am separating Islam and government." And how did he do this? In 1924, over his own signature, he dissolved the Caliphate formally. Anybody out there a fan of Monty Python? That was a sign of a civilized mind. Best Monty Python skit, the Dead Parrot. The Caliphate went the way of the parrot in that famous skit. It ceased to be. The little old man with the white beard, who was the caliph, was given his pink slip. He was fired. Why am I talking about this? Who cares? We just won an election. Right? Who cares? Everybody in this room should care. Why? For the next 90 years, Muslims who disagreed with Atatürk created organizations across the world from Asian to the Levant to do what? Bring the Caliphate back starting with the Muslim Brotherhood. But they all the way through to Al-Qaeda every single one of the failed. Hundreds of Jihadi organizations established and failed for the next century.

But then what happens? June 29, 2014, ISIS doesn't talk about bringing back the Caliphate. It just does it. And one more reason to understand the relevance of this history. Look at what Omar Mateen did, the Orlando murderer. We now know, the Attorney General tried to censor it, but we now know halfway through the largest terrorist attack in America since September 11, Omar Mateen went to the restroom in the nightclub, put down his rifle, picked up his cell phone and dialed 911, not to call ambulances to the scene but to do what? To tell the dispatcher four times – we have the audio now, you can listen to it – to tell the world what? I am a Jihadi. I do what I do for the Islamic State. I do what I do for the new caliph of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It's not ancient history nor is it simply something happening 8,000 miles away in Mesopotamia. It is happening here on the streets of Orlando, on the streets of Boston, on the streets of San Bernardino. That's why ISIS is an existential threat to everything you hold dear and everything that Mr. Trump's victory represents.

So, let me bring it all back home. Let me talk briefly about what ISIS is doing in America. This is a covered report we recently wrote upon. What is actually happening in the United States that can be linked to ISIS, and we wrote this without a client; we had no sponsor, but we were motivated because we were getting some very strange signals. The White House was telling us publicly, "Not a problem, ISIS is fine, not an issue." But our friends, especially inside the FBI, were saying we have a problem, and as a result, we sat down and for 3 months we collected all the unclassified information on what ISIS is doing in American, and here are the facts. Before I talk about our report, let me give you some corroborating evidence from Chapel Hill. Every year Chapel Hill writes a very politically correct report – you can tell by the title, "Muslim American Involvement in Violent Extremism." Right? We're not going to use the word "Jihad." But it's based upon unequivocal statistics, so it's useful because it's basically a summation of every Jihadi port in America that's happened in the last 12 months. This is their last report, and I give you just Figure 1. Have a look at that chart. It is a bar graph of every terrorist Jihadi plot in America in the last 15 years. Do you see the problem? The graph is going in the wrong direction. They're doing more, not less. And interestingly, look at the two inordinate spikes. First one, '09 huge peak. What happened in '09? I wonder. And, look at last year. This is everything you need to know. 2015 saw the highest incidents of Jihadi plots in the United States since 9/11. Despite 2015 being the year when both the Commander-in-Chief and Secretary Kerry said the following three days before San Bernardino, and I quote directly. The President and his chief diplomats said, "ISIS is contained. We are winning." That was 72 hours before the San Bernardino attack which, since then, has been eclipsed completely by Orlando.

Okay, let's look at our report. Here are the facts of the matter. We have mapped every ISIS plot in America since the Caliphate was declared two-and-a-half years ago. With the recent arrests after New Jersey and New York there have been 124 people arrested in America as ISIS terrorists. Not 24, not 34; 134. And the bad news is they're everywhere. This isn't concentrated in the Somali population of Minnesota. This is from Texas to California, from New Jersey to Pennsylvania. Yes it's practically everywhere. And here is the very disturbing news and this is what Mr. Trump will have to deal with. If you break down what they were doing when we caught them or killed them, this is the breakdown. About half of them are what the FBI calls "travelers," a delightful euphemism. Sounds like they're going on holiday to Paris, right? "Travelers." These are U.S. subjects that have sworn allegiance to ISIS, but want to leave America to fight Jihad in the Middle East. Yes, they're planning to go to Syria, Iraq, what have you, so they want to get out. Then we have about 20 percent that are the middle management terrorists. The talent spotters, the recruiters, the people who bring the Jihadi in, vet them and then buy them their plane ticket to the Middle East, which leaves a shocking proportion, 33.3 percent, exactly a third, who are individuals who likewise have sworn allegiance to the new emperor Abu Bakr, but have decided they are not going anywhere. They have decided the best way to serve the new Caliphate and the new emperor is to kill infidels here in America. As the result of that very high percentage, we closed our report with the following conclusion. The likelihood of a mass casualty Paris-style attack in America is not a question of if. It is a question of when. And we published that one week before San Bernardino. So that's the bad news. What's the good news? There is a way to win and that's what my book Defeating Jihad is about. A very simple set of ideas.

No. 1: no more political correctness. Gone. The idea that the administration can censor the threat, the idea that the Attorney General can have the words "Jihad" removed from transcripts of the Orlando shooter is over. In 2011, the White House issued an unclassified memorandum after a request from CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations. That memo the White House wrote was sent to the then-Attorney General the chief law enforcement officer of America, and the then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, the most senior military officer, and that memo, which you can find on my web site, stated the following. From this day forward, all training in the United States, whether of the military or law enforcement, will have no mention of the religion of Islam and words like "Jihad" are prohibited. That is your federal government. Well that has to stop, and we all know one thing about Donald Trump, don't we? He doesn't like political correctness. We cannot defeat our enemy unless we understand how religion informs his operations and defines our strategic objectives. Speak truth to the threat because you cannot heal a disease if you're not allowed to diagnose it nor can you defeat an enemy if you are curtailed on what you are allowed to say about them factually.

Second, please don't misunderstand me. Some people do and it causes issues. We are not at war with Islam. That is a fallacious and dangerous concept. Why? No. 1, do you remember the video of the fighter pilot in the cage burnt alive? Yes. What religion was he? Was he an Episcopalian? No. He was a Muslim. In fact, if you run the numbers, the majority of victims of Jihadis in the world today are in fact Muslims. Yeah. I mean, they've decimated Christian, Yazidis, Jews, yes, but by sheer numbers and proportions they are far more likely to kill you if you're a Muslim who disagrees with them than anybody else. So we have to do what? We have to empower those Muslims who want to be our friends to help defeat them. The Jordanians, the Egyptians, those countries who for the last seven-and-a-half years have been betrayed by this administration. It is not tenable to have white skin or black skin or yellow-skinned Americans be the face of victory against the Jihadists. We want it to be fellow Muslims. We want it to be the King of Jordan. We want it to be President Sisi. That's when you get victory. When the Muslims destroy the Jihadis.

Lastly, look, I'll be honest with you. I am a child of the Cold War. I grew up under the Cold War. It formed me. I miss it immensely. It was much easier. It was much easier, much easier. We can win this war the same way we won the Cold War. That's the ultimate victory, and as I like to inform my young students and officers for whom 1989 might as well be the sacking of Troy; I like to remind them that 27 years ago this week, November 9 in Berlin, when we America won the cold war, can anybody tell me how many bullets were fired across Checkpoint Charlie? It's a very round number. Right. Zero. None. Not one bullet was shot from an M16 or an AK47. Not one. Not one bomb left a bomb bay of an aircraft. But hang on. We won. So how did we win? We won thusly. The Great Gipper didn't just bankrupt the Soviet Union financially. Much more importantly he bankrupted their ideology. He destroyed communism morally, spiritually. He showed communism and Marxism for the hollow decrepit death cult that it is. And as a result on that cold November 9 it wasn't U.S. GIs with pick axes that took down the Berlin wall. It was the East Germans on the other side who said this is enough. This is bogus. This communism stuff is rubbish and with hand tools they took down a wall which, if you had crossed a few weeks earlier, you would have been shot. That's how we won. We de-legitimized the enemy's narrative, their ideology, their world view and lo and behold that is exactly what we have to do again today. That is when ultimate victory begins. Yes. Don't get me wrong. Don't get me wrong. The kinetic part of this war killing terrorists. I am down with killing terrorists. Okay. I'm very cool with it. But body bags are not a good metric of success. They weren't during that little tete-a-tete in South Asian called the Vietnam War and they're not much of a better metric today. This war should only be fought about 25 percent in the physical domain. Ultimate victory will happen where? In the mental and spiritual when the enemy no longer believes their own ideology and therefore loses the will to fight us just as happened with the Soviet Union.

So to translate that into practical terms, President Trump needs to create a strategic level counterpropaganda campaign just like President Reagan did primarily in the black sphere but also in the white sphere. We need things like the U.S. information agency again and we will need to work through our proxies. We need to help the Jordanians, the Egyptians and Moratis just the same way we helped the dissidents of the Cold War. I mean, we smuggled fax machines into Poland. Yes? I mean that was as important as anything else that we did during the Cold War and then that is how we can win.

If you want any more details then it's all in Defeating Jihad, which is a primer on the threat to America, what you need to know about our enemy and then my plan for how to defeat them. Okay. I'll be glad to take any of your questions if you wish to ask them. Thank you.

If you wish to ask them informally you have my email up there. Also my twitter handle. I'm very active on social media. My wife says I'm a bit too active but there you go. And also if you want anything I do for public consumption it's available at my web site thegorkerbriefing.com or my media my analysis and then everything we do for boys and girls in uniform is on our web site thethreatknowledge.org site and then lastly my wife runs a 501C3 that monitors the evolution of Jihadi ideology. That's the Council on Global Securities so you may want to mark down those web sites. Okay first question please.

[Response to audience member question:] ​

Okay so this is a bit of a technical question. I don't want to get into a big discourse here on the technical issues. "Attack theorism" is the best technical label for what the Jihadis do. It's a philosophy of Islam. It comes from an individual called Ibintime Mia, a scholar about a 1,000 years ago who basically said, "I can decide if you're not acting like a true Muslim." It's unilateral excommunication and attack theories, like Bin Laden, like Abu Bakr say, "Oh, the King of Jordan. He's clearly not a Muslim, so we can kill him." It's a pillar of their philosophy, but it's explained in more detail in my book. Thank you. Please my friend.

[Response to audience member question:] ​

Very simply why don't we, why shouldn't we say that? I'll tell you. I'll give it to you from the best source possible and this is General Sisi. The general, General Vallely and myself met with General Sisi before he become president. General Sisi of Egypt is a devout Muslim, a seriously devout Muslim, but when we asked him, "General, why did you do what you did? Why did you take your forces onto the streets to take down a democratically elected government?" And he was very, very simple in his answer. He said, "Because I am an Egyptian before I am a Muslim." It's not the same thing. Not the same thing. There are examples of Muslim states that have functioned in ways that comport with our value system and can function as allies. Look at Turkey. Turkey was the most important NATO nation in Europe and it was a Muslim nation. But why did it function? Because religion was separated from politics. We need to have that secularization happen again and we need to support people like General Sisi. That's my argument.

It's not going to be easy, but it's absolutely possible because really what we're talking about is a brand here. The brand is Jihadism and the issue is the concept of Jihad is far more attractive now than the secular version of Islam that is practiced in our allied and partner nations. The way I explain this in terms of visualization is, imagine if one of you, right now, left this building and went to downtown Miami and walked down the largest boulevard waving a giant swastika banner. Okay. You would not be cool to say the least. Okay. We have to do the same thing for the black flag of Jihad. It is a counter-messaging issue. We have to make it unattractive. Whether or not the end state is transcendentally informed or not is irrelevant. We have to associate that image with failure. Once we have done that we will be winning.

I cannot talk for all American Muslims and nobody in this room can do that. Okay? How do I think some of them deal with this? Many of them say, "Well, I know that, but that's the seventh century. I don't agree with it." But they make a personal decision. Look at the fact that we have Muslims who wear the cloth of the republic who have died for this nation in combat. So what decisions have they made? They've made the decision that I may be a Muslim, but the constitution of the United States usurps those passages in the Koran. The fact that some other Muslims would say he is therefore a heretic. That's another issue. That's another issue. But I think individuals make personal choices. They contextualize the religion and whether they can do that with the permission of somebody else who disagrees with them is another question.

Exclamation Muslims in State Department, Defense Department, and CIA debate quitting

Muslims in State Department, Defense Department, and CIA debate quitting
Presumably they're all extremely dedicated to fighting the war on radical Islamic terror.
By Ed Straker


http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/..._quitting.html

Muslims working in the State Department, Defense Department, and intelligence agencies like the CIA wonder if, with the election of Donald Trump, they should quit their jobs (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/1...ernment-231890).

The employees are on edge about everything from retaining their security clearances to the possibility of discriminatory treatment under Trump, whose top aides include known peddlers of conspiracy theories about Islamists infiltrating the U.S. government.

"I feel apprehensive," a Muslim intelligence official told POLITICO. "I fear that – whatever white power movement or equivalent all of a sudden feels empowered by the president-elect, whatever tidbits of that community make their way into government – at the most basic level people who are brown, Middle Eastern, Muslim or Sikh or whatever will either be looked at with a lens of suspicion or concern, or something more overt may take place."

... [O]thers fear Trump aides may make moves that are hard to prove as being based on overt ethnic or religious discrimination, such as simply appointing fewer Muslims or other minorities to prominent posts at State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Pentagon or elsewhere.

"My initial reaction was, 'Oh my God, should we quit and leave?'" said a State Department official of Muslim heritage who – like most sources contacted for this story – was unwilling to speak on the record for fear of angering the new administration. "People are still struggling to understand what it means right now. Does it make sense to stay on board? Do you wait to see what the policies are going to be?"

I would be very disappointed if Muslims working at the most sensitive levels of the government quit their jobs. I sleep better at night knowing that wonderful Muslims are working tirelessly to protect us at the most senior levels of the CIA, Department of Defense, and the State Department...unless they aren't committed to fighting the war on radical Islamic terror.

If they won't name radical Islam at the enemy we are fighting, they should resign.

If they view Donald Trump as more of an enemy than ISIS, they should resign.

If they have a problem with focusing on certain mosques and Muslim groups like CAIR to locate terrorists, they should resign.

If they have an objection to limiting immigration from countries where Muslim terrorists come from, they should resign.

If they blame America for terrorism rather than terrorists themselves, they should resign.

But I hope they don't have any problems with these policies. I sure would be sad to see them go.

Angry CAIR Leader Calling For Overthrow Of Government Under President Trump!

CAIR Leader Calling For Overthrow Of Government Under President Trump!



http://nutbarfactor.com/archives/165366


If you don’t like somenting in the government you do your best to change it within the law, you don’t out and out call for a terrorist act. CAIR is supposed to be a council that improves the relationship between the Muslim community and the non-Muslim community here in America. In reality, it is the opposite. It makes relations much, much worse.

The organization is very suspicious and has frequently used rhetoric sympathetic to terrorism. The leader of CAIR’s Los Angeles chapter, Hussam Ayloush, even said that the U.S. was to blame for the San Bernardino terrorist attack. Then CAIR rushed to the aid of the shooter’s family right after the attack.

Here is what Ayloush had to say about the recent election. Ok, repeat after me: Al-Shaab yureed isqat al-nizaam. (Arab Spring chant) Translation? Not good…

From Federalist Papers: The second line “Al-Shaab yureed isqat al-nizaam” in Arabic is (الشعب يريد إسقاط النظام‎‎), literally translated, it means “The people want to overthrow the regime.” It was a slogan first used during the Tunisian revolution, which kicked off the Arab Spring, where dozens of totalitarian Islamic nations were either toppled or faced serious street demonstrations. It was also the slogan during the overthrow of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.

Ayloush is not just a nominal figure in Leftist circles. In 2012, he was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention and has attended at least two White House meetings, Daniel Pipes is reporting. The [White House] logs show Ayloush met with Paul Monteiro, associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement on July 8, 2011 and Amanda Brown, assistant to the White House director of political affairs Patrick Gaspard, on June 6, 2009. According to reliable sources, Monteiro was White House liaison for secret contacts with CAIR, especially with Ayloush.

For the record, advocating the overthrow of the U.S. Government is an extremely serious crime. In 18 U.S. Code § 2385, it reads:

“Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States… Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

Great…

It looks like this guy isn’t planning on joining us on earth anytime soon.

Exclamation The anti-semitic islamophobia hoax

THE ANTI-SEMITIC ISLAMOPHOBIA HOAX
You can’t fight anti-Semitism without exposing Islamophobia as a lie.
By Daniel Greenfield


http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2654...iel-greenfield


Fighting Islamophobia is trendy. But it also often becomes a means of enabling and expressing hatred toward others. Especially Jews. It doesn’t take much digging into campaigns against Islamophobia to find the anti-Semitism lurking underneath the bright lights and polished logos.

The Ford Foundation (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/f...76&category=79), which in its time had played a key role in the anti-Semitic Durban hatefest, hosted a forum titled, “Confronting Islamophobia in America Today.” Participants included Linda Sarsour, who had promoted the anti-Semitic Muslim (http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/201...couraging.html) practice of throwing rocks at Jews (http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/e...ur/2015/10/28/) and appeared at a rally (http://counterjihad.com/meet-linda-s...slamist-views/) for a pro-Hezbollah organization, along with Imam Talib Abdur-Rashid (http://www.investigativeproject.org/...s/misc/721.pdf), who had defended Ahmadinejad's (http://www.nysun.com/new-york/new-yo...-saying/25814/) call for destroying Israel and described such a proposed atrocity as a sentiment born of "legitimate anger."

Why was the Ford Foundation privileging the persecution fantasies of Islamist bigots who believe that plotting the genocide of millions of Jews is somehow rooted in “legitimate anger”?

The loudest voices inveighing against Islamophobia often justify Islamic terrorism, explicitly or implicitly, even while they whine that being associated with Islamic terrorism is a form of Islamophobia. Indeed the campaign against Islamophobia has, among its agendas, the legitimization of Islamic terrorism.

If Islamic terrorism, and its underlying supremacist hatred of Jews, can’t be discussed, then it also can’t be condemned. And, in a perverse twist, Islamic terrorists then become the victims of Islamophobia.

The Florida Center for Investigative Reporting has been fundraising aggressively for its “Islamophobia Project”. The FCIR is the work of Trevor Aaronson who had attempted to dismiss anti-Semitic Muslim terror plots against synagogues as an FBI conspiracy.

The FCIR’s Islamophobia Project is run by Trevor and Roqayah Chamseddine.

Roqayah has written for Mondoweiss, an anti-Semitic website which has published Holocaust deniers (http://web.archive.org/web/201107050...on?detail=hide) and runs articles with titles like, “Liberals like to deceive themselves about Jewish power.”

She has written at Electronic Intifada that the attackers would “smash the settler state” and destroy the “vast Zionist settler-colonial project, i.e. Israel”. She has defended Islamic terrorism against Jews, writing that the, “choice of what methods of resistance are used, be it armed or unarmed, are to be left entirely up to those occupied.”

At Mondoweiss, Roqayah Chamseddine also expressed support for Tarek Mehanna (https://archives.fbi.gov/archives/bo...elated-charges), who had been convicted of providing material support to Al Qaeda, and praised the Islamic terrorists of Hezbollah.

Roqayah praised Mehanna’s “powerful statement” in which the Al Qaeda supporter describes how he watched on “September 11th as a group of people felt driven to hijack airplanes and fly them into buildings from their outrage at the deaths of these children”.

This is what the face of the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting’s Islamophobia Project looks like.

Despite this, the Islamophobia Project anticipates a grant from the Knight Foundation to fund its work. And the Islamophobia Project already promotes JVP’s so-called Network Against Islamophobia.

The Network Against Islamophobia and its “No to Islamophobia” events are actually designed to promote the JVP hate group. JVP or Jewish Voice for Peace consists of former Jews recruited to defend the Islamic war against the Jewish State. It is telling that “fighting Islamophobia” requires attacking Jews.

JVP has co-sponsored rallies featuring support for Hamas and its leader gave an interview (http://www.jta.org/2012/09/09/news-o...ng-credibility) to a Holocaust denial website (https://capitalresearch.org/article/bds/). After outrage grew over this latest JVP act of hate, the hate group claimed that the interview had been obtained under “false pretenses”. Its bigots even disrupted a New York City Council memorialization of the 70th anniversary of the liberation(http://legalinsurrection.com/2015/01...-of-auschwitz/) of Auschwitz.

The “No to Islamophobia” events attacked and appropriated the Jewish celebration of Chanukah to spew hatred against the Jewish State. Instead of criticizing this ugly outpouring of bigotry to fight “Islamophobia”, the mainstream media wrote up glowing reports of the hate group’s anti-Semitic antics.

“No to Islamophobia” was interlinked with various Islamist hate groups including American Muslims for Palestine, a group with Hamas links that celebrated (http://www.campus-watch.org/article/id/13655) a murderer of Jews, and CAIR, which had invited (http://www.investigativeproject.org/...s/misc/120.pdf) a Holocaust denier to its conferences. Islamists have a history of awkwardly using fake Jewish allies like JVP in its campaigns to spread anti-Semitism and muzzle any conversation about Islamic terrorism.

A JVP protest against (https://thesilentmajoritynomore.com/...eum-vids-pics/) the 9/11 Museum featured a handful of elderly leftist radicals and Muslim women in burkas and young girls in hijabs holding up signs reading, “Jews Say No to Islamophobia”.

Not only was there no Islamophobia, but there were Islamists appropriating Jewish identity to protect the Islamic supremacism that is killing Jews, along with Christians, Yazidis and countless others.

There has recently been some debate over the intersection between Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. And there are explicitly anti-Semitic interpretations of this intersection by Islamists and their allies.

A familiar defense by Muslims accused of hating Jews is to argue that they are also “Semites”. Some have even urged appropriating the term to refer to Islamophobia. This isn’t a denial of the accusation; it’s a shameless semantic move to eliminate the ability by Jews to call out Muslim anti-Semitism.

The more mainstream approach is to insist that Muslims are the “New Jews” (http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2611...iel-greenfield) on account of being the most persecuted minority. But even the recently “goosed” hate crimes statistics put the lie to that.

The rhetoric of Islamophobia inevitably trends toward colonialist messages, appropriating and displacing the identities and cultures of the groups persecuted by Islam. Mohammed founded Islam as a religion of colonialism. The Ummah model fosters an Islamic globalization in which Saudi, Iranian and Qatari money are used to consolidate a worldwide network of former colonies into a proposed Caliphate.

ISIS is a brute force derivative of a far more sophisticated global industry of Islamic colonialism.

Jews have always been the leading edge of resistance to Islamic colonialism. Mohammed’s religious colonialism appropriated Judaism and then sought to legitimize it by eliminating the Jews.

Modern Islamists continue to use the same Mohammedan anti-Semitic rhetoric internally; descriptions of Jews as “pigs and apes” or the “killers of prophets” abound in the literature and speeches of both “moderate” and “extremist” groups along with the infamous genocidal Hadith which (http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/20...hind-tree.html) claims that the Day of Judgement will not come until the Muslims exterminate the Jews.

But externally, Islamists have deployed a sophisticated vocabulary of political victimhood centered on the use of Islamophobia as a shield to silence criticism of their supremacist bigotry and violence.

The greatest victims of the Islamophobia narrative are the targets of Islamic violence.

Historically some of the greatest victims of Islamic supremacism, from Mohammed’s demand that the Jews and Christians be ethnically cleansed from the Arabian Peninsula to the last century of Islamic persecution with everything from pogroms with knives to sophisticated bombs, have been the Jews.

And yet to criticize Mohammed’s violence is “Islamophobic”. And the FBI’s effort to stop Muslim terror plots against Jewish synagogues is also somehow rooted in Islamophobia. Needless to say, Israel’s refusal to allow its population to be exterminated by Muslim colonialism is also Islamophobic.

Jews are the only surviving minority group in the region with their own independent state. The latest calls by the Islamic colonial project for its destruction come under the guise of fighting Islamophobia.

The Islamophobia hoax is not merely a denial of anti-Semitism. It enables anti-Semitism. The biggest proponents of the hoax, such as Hatem Bazian (http://www.campus-watch.org/article/id/11850), have rich histories of persecuting and hating Jews.

Some Jewish organizations have come to believe that they ought to be fighting both Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. But that is as impossible as aiding both the perpetrators of crime and their victims. Muslim Anti-Semitism is enabled, empowered and protected by the Islamophobia narrative. The only way to fight back is to expose Islamophobia as the lie that Islamist bigots use to shield their bigotry.
