WE TOO OUGHT TO STAND

WHEN AN ULTRA, ULTRA LIBERAL MAGAZINE SUCH AS THE NEW YORKER ...WRITES AN ARTICLE SUCH AS THIS...YOU REALIZE AMERICAIS FINALLY WAKING UP TO THE CORRUPTION LIES, INCOMPETENCE AND IGNORANCE OF Washington.
This is absolutely brilliant. A surprising article from the New Yorker Magazine. This magazine has always been a left wing apologizer so this articleis even more amazing. Don’t pass it up. The author. Roy Kaplan, is the political correspondent for Bloomberg and wrote extensively about Obama even before he was nominated.
"Who is Donald Trump?" The better question may be, "What is Donald Trump?"The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political, academic and media establishment. Some Trump supporters have simply had it with the Demo-socialists and the "Republicans In Name Only" class of people. They knew there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates. Ben Carson was not an "establishment" candidate, but the Clinton machine would pulverize Carson; and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz (justifiably so) would have been tied up with natural born citizen lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio). The Trump supporters figure they may as well have some fun tossing Molotov cocktails at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse. Besides - lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually fix a few things. Stranger things have happened (the nation elected an [islamo-]Marxist in 2008 and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.) Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious. They gave the Republicans control of the House in 2010 and control of the Senate in 2014, and have seen them govern no differently than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.. Yet those same voters are supposed to trust the GOP in 2016? Why? Trump did not come from out of nowhere. His candidacy was created by the last six years of Republican failures. No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment candidates [dems or reps] would have slashed federal spending, rein in the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations, reform the tax code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, etc.). Even Ronald Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of Education. (Of course, getting shot at tends to make a person less of a risk-taker.) No reasonable person can believe that any of the nation's major problems will be solved by Rodham as she is simply the third verse of Obama’s waning swan song.
Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:
· Anyone named Bush
· Anyone named Clinton
· Anyone who's held political office
· Political correctness
· Illegal immigration
· Massive unemployment
Our out of control federal spending
Our National Debt that exceeds our GDP (Can you say Greece?)
· Phony "official" unemployment and inflation figures
· Welfare waste and fraud
Money being spent on Illegal immigrants
· People faking disabilities to go on the dole
· VA waiting lists
· TSA airport groping
· The Federal Reserve's money-printing schemes · Wall Street crooks like Jon Corzine
· Michelle Obama's vacations
· Michelle Obama's food police
· Barack Obama's golf
· Barack Obama's arrogant and condescending lectures
· Barack Obama's criticism/hatred of America
· Valerie Jarrett
· " Holiday trees"
· Cop killers calling themselves Black Lives Matter
· Gun confiscation
· Stagnant wages
· Boys in girls' bathrooms
. Whiny, spoiled college students who can't even place the Civil War in the correct century... and that's just the short list.
Trump supporters believe that no Democrat wants to address these issues, and that few Republicans have the courage to address these issues.They know that Trump is their way of saying, "Screw you, Hillary Rodham and all the Do Nothing Republicans!" The more the talking head political pundits insult the Trump supporters, the more supporters he gains. (The only pundits who seem to understand what is going on are Democrats Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell and Republican John LeBoutillier.
But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage. It needs a new engine installed by experts - and Hillary Rodham is not a mechanic;she merely manages a garage her philandering husband abandoned. Trump is also not a mechanic, but he knows where to find the best ones to work in his garage. He won't hire his brother-in-law or someone to whom he owes a favor; he will hire someone who lives and breathes cars.
"How dare they revolt!" the "elites" are bellowing. Well, the citizens are daring to revolt, and the RINOs had better get used to it. "But Trump willhand the election to Clinton!" That is what the Karl Rove-types want people to believe, just as the leftist media eagerly shoved "Maverick" McCain down GOP throats in 2008 - knowing he would lose to Obama. But even if Trump loses and Rodham wins, she would be nothing more than a caretaker, not working to restore America's greatness but merely presiding over the collapse of a massively in-debt nation. A nation can perhaps survive open borders; a nation can perhaps survive a generous welfare system. But no nation can survive both - and there is little evidence that Hillary Rodham understands that. The United States cannot forever continue on the path it is on. At some point it will be destroyed by its debt.
Yes, Trump speaks like a bull wander[ing] through a china shop, but the truth is that the borders do need to be sealed; we cannot afford to feed, house,and clothe 200,000 Syrian immigrants for decades (even if we get inordinately lucky and none of them are ISIS infiltrators or Syed Farook wannabes); the world is at war with radical Islamists; and we cannot continue trying to spend our way out of debt. Is Trump the perfect candidate? Of course not. Neither was Ronald Reagan. But unless we close our borders and restrict immigration, all the other issues are irrelevant. One terrorist blowing up a bridge or a tunnel could kill thousands. One jihadist poisoning a city's water supply could kill tens of thousands. One electromagnetic pulse attack from a single Iranian nuclear device could kill tens of millions. Faced with those possibilities, most Americans probably don't care that Trump relied on eminent domain to grab up a final quarter acre of property for a hotel, or that he boils the blood of the Muslim Brotherhood thugs running the Council on American-Islamic Relations. While Attorney General Loretta Lynch's greatest fear is someone giving a Muslim a dirty look, most Americans are more worried about being gunned down at a shopping mall by a crazed [islamic] lunatic who treats his prayer mat better than his three wives and who is fool enough to think that 72 virgins are waiting for him in paradise.
The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not because they believe he will harm the nation. They are afraid he will upset theirtaxpayer-subsidized apple carts. While Obama threatens to veto legislation that spends too little, they worry that Trump will veto legislation that spends too much. You can be certain that if Hillary wins in November 2016 … [her] cabinet positions will be filled with the same people we've seen before. The washed-up -has-beens of the Clinton and Obama administrations will be back in charge. The hacks from Goldman Sachs will continue to call the shots. And American will continue her continuing decline as other great democracies in history.
If the establishment wins, America loses.Roy Kaplan
This is a true story. The man who walks with God always gets to his destination. If you have a pulse you have a purpose.
The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in Canada , especially in the minority races!!!
month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining
my federal prison security clearance.
During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their beliefs.
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say. The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.
After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked:
correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams
and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the
infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel, (which is a command
to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If
that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?'
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, 'Non-believers!'
I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct?'
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.'
He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'
I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine Pope John Paul commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Charles Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'
The Imam was speechless!
continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your
brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me!
Let me ask you a question: Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me?'
could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame. Needless to
say, the organizers and/or promoters of the Diversification training
seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam, and
exposing the truth about the Muslims'
Dress Codes of the strictest for Muslims

Just what I want to be!!! NOT
Joys of Muslim Women
by Nonie Darwish
In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old
and have sexual intimacy with this child......... consummating the marriage
by age 9.
The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy. Even though a woman is abused she can not obtain a divorce. To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses. Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry.
The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the
honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives 'at will' and he does
not have to say why he has beaten her. The husband is permitted to have (4
wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.
The Shariah Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of
the woman. In the West World (America) Muslim men are starting to demand Shariah Law so the wife can not obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to the Shariah law. By passing this on, enlightened American women may avoid becoming a slave under Shariah Law.
Ripping the West in Two Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Shariah law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two. She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law.
Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America in 1978, when she was eight years old. Her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel. He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza . When he died, he was considered a "shahid," a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society.
But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her
own Muslim culture and upbringing. She converted to Christianity after
hearing a Christian preacher on television. In her latest book, Darwish
warns about creeping sharia law - what it is, what it means, and how it is
manifested in Islamic countries.
For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia on the
world... If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed. Westerners
generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each
individual. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be
subjugated or killed in this world.
Peace and prosperity for one's children is not as important as assuring that
Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.
While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics - one for Muslims and
another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh
century, Sharia encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others.
While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a
personal understanding of and relationship with God, Sharia advocates
executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted
as criticism. It's hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic
scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformation is common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the Middle East are silenced through intimidation.
While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over
time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere.
In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the
President by themselves! Rest assured they will do so...You can look at how
they have taken over several towns in the USA... Dearborn Mich. is one...
and there are others.
I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the
ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us
sends it on!
It is too bad that so many are disillusioned with life and Christianity to
accept Muslims as peaceful...some may be but they have an army that is
willing to shed blood in the name of Islam...the peaceful support the
warriors with their finances and own kind of patriotism to their religion.
While Americans getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and
erasing God from the lives of children the Muslims are planning a great
jihad on America.

Jihadists 'order four million girls and women in Iraqi city to undergo female genital mutilation'
Militant group in charge of northern Iraq accused of ordering FGM
Edict could affect 4million women and girls in and around city of Mosul
UN expresses concern at reports, saying procedure is 'not will of the people'
Comes after reports of rapes and forced marriages in the area, UN says
Some ISIS supporters have denied the claims, branding them 'propaganda'
By Richard Spillett Published: 22:28 EST, 24 July 2014 | Updated: 05:51 EST, 25 July 2014
There was anger last night after it emerged militant group ISIS may have ordered compulsory female genital mutilation (FGM) for all women and girls in a region of Iraq now under its control. The extremist group has seized large swathes of the troubled country's northern regions and is now said to be imposing its hardline Sharia rules on the population. The United Nations expressed deep concern yesterday at reports all girls and women in and around city of Mosul are to being forced to undergo FGM procedures. A UN spokesman in Geneva said that they were seeking clarity and trying to establish the facts. Such a 'fatwa' issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4million women and girls, according to UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq Jacqueline Badcoc. 'We have current reports of imposition of a directive that all female girl children and women up to the age of 49 must be circumcised. etc.. and the news story continues and ends with this statement.. FGM, the partial or total removal of external female genitalia, is a tradition practised widely in many African and Muslim countries and often justified as a means of suppressing a woman's sexual desire to prevent 'immoral' behaviour. Worldwide, more than 130 million girls and women have undergone FGM and more than 700 million women alive today were children when they were married. The practice of FGM previously occurred only in isolated pockets of Iraq, mainly Kurdistan, according to Badcock. Mosul city currently has some two million people, more than half of whom are women as there are many female-headed households in the area, she said. Several more million people live in surrounding areas, she added. 'There are reports of rapes of women, of forced marriages,' Badcock added.
MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?
This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish And send it on to everyone. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are So quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be A good American?
This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:
Theologically - no. . . .. Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon God of Arabia.
Religiously - no.. . .... Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah Except Islam (Quran, 2:256) (Koran)
Scripturally - no. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
Geographically - no . Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he Turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially - no. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make Friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically - no.. . .... Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual Leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, The great Satan.
Domestically - no. . . Because he is instructed to marry four Women and Beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34)
Intellectually - no. . Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
Philosophically - no. . . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does Not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot Co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.
Spiritually - no.. .. Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' The Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to As Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 Excellent names.
Therefore, after much study and deliberation.... Perhaps we should be Very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country.
- - - They
obviously Cannot be both 'good' Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you
wish it's still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand
This, the better it will be for our country and our future.
The religious war is bigger than we know or understand. ....
Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. SO FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.
THE MARINES WANT THIS TO ROLL ALL OVER THE U.S.
January 14, 2010
Wilder's speech to Holland's Parliament
Madam Speaker, allow me, first, to express my sincere thanks to you personally for having planned a debate on Islam on the very day of my birthday. I could not have wished for a nicer present! Madam Speaker, approximately 1400 years ago war was declared on us by an ideology of hate and violence which arose at the time and was proclaimed by a barbarian who called himself the Prophet Mohammed. I am referring to Islam.
Madam Speaker, let me start with the foundation of the Islamic faith, the Koran. The Koran's core theme is about the duty of all Muslims to fight non-Muslims; an Islamic Mein Kampf, in which fight means war, jihad. The Koran is above all a book of war, a call to butcher non-Muslims (2:191, 3:141, 4:91, 5:3), to roast them (4:56, 69:30-69:32), and to cause bloodbaths amongst them (47:4). Jews are compared to monkeys and pigs (2:65, 5:60, 7:166), while people who believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God must according to the Koran be fought (9:30).
Madam Speaker, the West has no problems with Jews or Christians, but it does have problems with Islam. It is still possible, even today, for Muslims to view the Koran, which they regard as valid for all time, as a license to kill. And that is exactly what happens. The Koran is worded in such a way that its instructions are addressed to Muslims for eternity, which includes today's Muslims. This in contrast to texts in the Bible, which is formulated as a number of historical narratives, placing events in a distant past. Let us remind ourselves that it was Muslims, not Jews or Christians, who committed the catastrophic terrorist attacks in New York, Madrid and London; and that it was no coincidence that Theo van Gogh was brutally murdered by a Muslim, Mohammed Bouyeri.
Madam Speaker, I acknowledge that there are people who call themselves Muslims and who respect our laws. My party, the Freedom Party, has nothing against such people, of course. However, the Koran does have something against them. For it is stated in the Koran in Sura 2, verse 85, that those believers who do not believe in everything the Koran states will be humiliated and receive the severest punishment; which means that they will roast in Hell. In other words, people who call themselves Muslims but who do not believe, for example, in Sura 9, verse 30, which states that Jews and Christians must be fought, or, for example, in Sura 5, verse 38, which states that the hand of a thief must be cut off, such people will be humiliated and roast in Hell. Note that it is not me who is making this up. All this can be found in the Koran. The Koran also states that Muslims who believe in only part of the Koran are in fact apostates, and we know what has to happen to apostates. They have to be killed.
Madam Speaker, the Koran is a book that incites to violence. I remind the House that the distribution of such texts is unlawful according to Article 132 of our Penal Code. In addition, the Koran incites to hatred and calls for murder and mayhem. The distribution of such texts is made punishable by Article 137(e). The Koran is therefore a highly dangerous book; a book which is completely against our legal order and our democratic institutions. In this light, it is an absolute necessity that the Koran be banned for the defence and reinforcement of our civilization and our constitutional state. I shall propose a second-reading motion to that effect.
Madam Speaker, there is no such thing as "moderate Islam".... As Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan said the other day, and I quote, "There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that's it".... Islam is in pursuit of dominance. It wishes to exact its imperialist agenda by force on a worldwide scale (8:39). This is clear from European history. Fortunately, the first Islamic invasion of Europe was stopped at Poitiers in 732; the second in Vienna in 1683. Madam Speaker, let us ensure that the third Islamic invasion, which is currently in full spate, will be stopped too in spite of its insidious nature and notwithstanding the fact that, in contrast to the 8th and 17th centuries, it has no need for an Islamic army because the scared "dhimmis" in the West, also those in Dutch politics, have left their doors wide open to Islam and Muslims.
Apart from conquest, Madam Speaker, Islam is also bent on installing a totally different form of law and order, namely Sharia law. This makes Islam, apart from a religion for hundreds of millions of Muslims also, and in particular, a political ideology (with political/constitutional/Islamic basic values, etc). Islam is an ideology without any respect for others; not for Christians, not for Jews, not for non-believers and not for apostates. Islam aims to dominate, subject, kill and wage war.
Madam Speaker, the Islamic incursion must be stopped. Islam is the Trojan Horse in Europe. If we do not stop Islamification now, Eurabia and Netherabia will just be a matter of time. One century ago, there were approximately 50 Muslims in the Netherlands. Today, there are about 1 million Muslims in this country. Where will it end? We are heading for the end of European and Dutch civilization as we know it.

Islam’s Religious War with Everyone
April 22, 2014 by Daniel Greenfield
Few divides are as impossible to bridge as those of religion. You either believe or you don’t. When it comes to Islam, non-Muslims are expected to take its goodwill on faith. If you believe your eyes and ears, Islam and violence go together like peanut butter and jelly. But if you believe Muslims and their spin doctors with academic degrees, Muslims are the victims of other religions. If Muslims fighting Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists are the victims of non-Muslims, what are we to make of Muslims fighting other Muslims in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq? Religious civil wars make it hard to believe that Muslims are the victims of other religions instead of the authors of their own violence. Religions have a long history of not getting along with one another, but there is only one religion that has never gotten along with any other religion, is engaging in a religious war with every religion that exists, with atheists who have no religion, and even with its own co-religionists. Is all this violence someone else’s fault? Or is it Islam’s fault? Muslim hostility to Christians and Jews is not a phenomenon that began with the modern State of Israel or American foreign policy. Muslims have warred with Christians and Jews as minorities and persecuted them as majorities. Academic apologists claim that Muslim hostility toward Christians derived from an ongoing conflict, but at no time during the history of Islam until the twentieth century did the Jews have a functioning state. Israel has conveniently become the focus and explanation for Muslim hostility toward Jews, but that fails to explain over a thousand years of Muslim hatred and persecution … long before Herzl or the IDF. Why did Muslims persecute and kill Jews long before Zionism was even a word? For the same reason that they killed Christians. Islam hated Judaism and Christianity from the start. The Koran urges Muslims not to befriend Jews or Christians (Koran 5:51) speaks of “enmity and hatred” with Christians (Koran 5:15) and the Jews (Koran 5:65) who are also to be cursed. The Jews are accused of “creating disorder” (Koran 5:65) and Christians are accused of worshiping their priests (Koran 9:31). The Jews and Christians believe in evil things (Koran 4:52) and Allah’s curse will be upon them (Koran 9:30). Muslims don’t hate and kill Jews because of Israel. They hate Israel because it is Jewish. September 11 was part of an ongoing war against Christians dating back over a thousand years. The real reason why a Muslim carries out a terrorist attack in New York or Boston is the same reason why a church gets burned in Egypt or bombed in Syria. It’s the same reason why teenage British girls get raped and why the Christian population of the Middle East has shrunk from a quarter to a tenth. Everything else is just Muslim war propaganda that only fools and appeasers take at face value. The Koran’s scriptural hatred encouraged Muslim warlords to spread Islam through the mass murder, enslavement and rape of Jews and Christians. The legacy of hatred began with the ethnic cleansing of Jews and Christians from what is today Saudi Arabia and the persecution of Middle Eastern Christians and Jews continues into the modern era. It is this old hatred that is behind the terrorism against Israeli Jews and Egyptian Christians. It is not a new hatred, but an old one. The religious basis for everything from Hamas’ war against Israel to Al Qaeda’s war on America derives from these and other verses in the Koran, from teachings in the Hadiths and later rulings of Islamic law. Terrorism against Christians and Jews cannot be detached from Islam because it is Islam. When Muslims chant the old genocidal battle cry, “Khybar khaybar ya yahoos,” at Oxford or Toulouse University or when University of California Professor Hatem Bazian recites the Hadith that states, “The Day of Judgment will never happen until you fight the Jews”; the fiction that this is a new conflict dating back to 1948 unravels. If Islam’s conflict were only with Christians and Jews, it might be dismissed as an old rivalry. But Islam, at least scripturally, hates Jews and Christians less than it hates every other religion out there. While Jews and Christians have the provisional status of People of the Book, second class citizens, the rest of the world is treated as idolaters and polytheists and faces an even more unrelenting genocide. If the Koran is nasty toward Christians and Jews, it’s even worse when it comes to everyone else. “Kill the idolaters wherever you find them” (Koran 9:5), “Kill them wherever you meet them” (Koran 2:192) and “When you meet in regular battle those who disbelieve, smite their necks” (Koran 47:5). These are not mere words. The Muslim conquests of India led to the mass murder of as many as 80 million Hindus. The Hindu Kush mountain range commemorates a small part of the genocide that took place. Likewise the Buddhists were massacred in large numbers. Islam does not win many religious debates. It achieves its victory through the Koranic command, “Fight those who believe not in Allah” (Koran 9:29). This isn’t ancient history; it’s why Muslims continue to kill Hindus and Buddhists today. Apologists will claim that it’s the Hindus and Buddhists, like the Christians and Jews, who are persecuting Muslims. But it’s hard to argue that Hindu and Buddhist minorities in Pakistan are persecuting Muslims. Not even the most shameless apologist for Islam would attempt to claim that Zoroastrians are being persecuted in Iran… because that tiny oppressed minority is persecuting the Islamic majority. The persecution of the Bahai in Iran or the Kalash in Pakistan show that Muslim religious intolerance exists even entirely divorced from foreign affairs or past history. Islam is not intolerant as a response to intolerance. It is inherently intolerant. Ten of the fifteen most religiously intolerant countries in the world are Muslim. There is no way to square that with the claim that Muslims are the victims of religious intolerance, rather than its perpetrators. Muslims engage in religious conflicts both as majorities and minorities. They engage in religious conflicts with both minorities and majorities. They persecute other religions regardless of whether they are old or new, even if there is no existing history of conflict. They are motivated by a relentless xenophobia. It doesn’t matter what you believe, so long as your belief differs from theirs. You can believe in nothing at all. You can even believe in another version of Islam. When Muslims run out of non-Muslims to persecute, they attack other Muslims. In Libya and Tunisia, Salafists have targeted Sufis. Syria and Iraq are being torn apart by conflicts between Sunnis and Shiites. In Australia, a Sheikh prays, “Oh Allah, count the Buddhists and the Hindus one by one. Oh Allah, count them and kill them to the very last one.” On Al Jazeera, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Spiritual Guide, Yusuf al-Qaradawi prayed for the Jews, “O Allah, do not spare a single one of them. O Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.” A Gaza sermon demands, “Strike the Jews… the Christians… Allah count them and kill them to the last one.” This is genocide. It’s also Islam. Not a tiny minority of it either. Islam did not expand by treating minorities well. It grew through genocide, slavery and war. That is still how it is growing today. Islamic terrorism is not a protest movement; it is a new wave of religious conquests, spreading fear and death into the lands to be conquered. Into the Dar-al-Harb. The House of War. A Muslim bombing is not a cry for help by the oppressed, it is a demand that the bombed submit to their new Muslim oppressors.

“Abducting Women” and “Destroying Churches” is “Real Islam”—Iraqi Grand Ayatollah
By Raymond Ibrahim on October 15, 2015 in Islam, Muslim Persecution of Christians
During a recent televised interview with Grand Ayatollah Ahmad al-Baghdadi, the leading Shia cleric of Iraq made clear why Islam and the rest of the world can never peacefully coexist. First he spent some time discussing “defensive jihad,” saying that all capable Muslims are obligated to fight for the “liberation” of “occupied” territory, for instance, Israel (see here for a list of European countries also deemed “occupied” in the eyes of Islam). He then explained “offensive jihad,” Islam’s primary bloodline, which forged what we now call the “Muslim world” over the centuries. According to the ayatollah, when they can—when circumstance permits it, when they are strong enough—Muslims are obligated to go on the offensive and conquer non-Muslims (a fact to be kept in mind as millions of Muslim “refugees” flood the West). The Muslim cleric repeatedly yelled at the secularized host who kept interrupting him and protesting that Islam cannot teach such intolerance. At one point, he burst out: “I am the scholar of Islam [al-faqih]. You are just a journalist. Listen to me!” Expounded Al-Baghdadi: If they are people of the book [Jews and Christians] we demand of them the jizya—and if they refuse, then we fight them. That is if he is Christian. He has three choices: either convert to Islam, or, if he refuses and wishes to remain Christian, then pay the jizya [and live according to dhimmi rules]. But if they still refuse—then we fight them, and we abduct their women, and destroy their churches—this is Islam!… Come on, learn what Islam is, are you even a Muslim?! As for the polytheists [Hindus, Buddhists, etc.] we allow them to choose between Islam and war! This is not the opinion of Ahmad al-Husseini al-Baghdadi, but the opinion of all five schools of jurisprudence [four Sunni and one Shia]. Towards the end of the interview, because the clean-shaven, suit-and-tie-wearing host kept protesting that this cannot be Islam, the ayatollah burst out, pointing at him with contempt and saying, “Who are you? You’re going to tell me what to believe? This is the word of Allah!” Indeed. Not only is it the word of Islam’s deity, but it is the fundamental, insurmountable obstacle for peace between Muslims and non-Muslims. Al-Baghdadi—and the countless other Muslim clerics, Sunni and Shia, that hold these views—are not “radicals.” For offensive jihad is no less codified than, say, Islam’s Five Pillars, which no Muslim rejects. The Encyclopaedia of Islam’s entry for “jihad” states that the “spread of Islam by arms is a religious duty upon Muslims in general … Jihad must continue to be done until the whole world is under the rule of Islam … Islam must completely be made over before the doctrine of jihad can be eliminated.” Islam has yet to “completely be made over.” Renowned Muslim historian and philosopher Ibn Khaldun (d. 1406) explained jihad as follows: In the Muslim community, jihad is a religious duty because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and the obligation to convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force. The other religious groups did not have a universal mission, and the jihad was not a religious duty for them, save only for purposes of defense. But Islam is under obligation to gain power over other nations. Here it’s worth noting that even the most offensive jihad is seen as an “altruistic” endeavor, not unlike the “white man’s burden” of the 19th century. After all, the ancient argument that “we must reform your ways, with our ways, for your own good” has been one of the most cited justifications for offensive jihad since the 7th century. Indeed, soon after the death of Islam’s prophet Muhammad (634), when his jihadis burst out of the Arabian peninsula, a soon-to-be conquered Persian commander asked the invading Muslims what they wanted. They reportedly replied as follows: Allah has sent us and brought us here so that we may free those who desire from servitude to earthly rulers and make them servants of Allah, that we may change their poverty into wealth and free them from the tyranny and chaos of [false] religions and bring them to the justice of Islam. He has sent us to bring his religion to all his creatures and call them to Islam. Whoever accepts it from us will be safe, and we shall leave him alone; but whoever refuses, we shall fight until we fulfill the promise of Allah. Fourteen hundred years later, in March 2009, Saudi legal expert Basem Alem publicly echoed this view: As a member of the true religion [Islam], I have a greater right to invade [others] in order to impose a certain way of life [according to Sharia], which history has proven to be the best and most just of all civilizations. This is the true meaning of offensive jihad. When we wage jihad, it is not in order to convert people to Islam, but in order to liberate them from the dark slavery in which they live. Even al-Qaeda partially justified its jihad against America for being “a nation that exploits women like consumer products”; for not rejecting the “immoral acts of fornication, homosexuality, intoxicants, gambling, and usury.” If the “white man’s burden” was/is to “civilize” Muslims, by bringing them “democracy,” “human rights,” and “secularism,” the “Muslim man’s burden”—captured by Allah’s word to Muslims, “Jihad is ordained for you, though you dislike it” (Koran 2:216)—has long been to “civilize” Westerners by bringing them under the umbrella of Sharia. This positive interpretation of jihad ensures that, no matter how violent and ostensibly unjust a jihad is, it will always be vindicated in Muslim eyes: the ugly means will be justified by the “altruistic” ends. Finally, as Grand Ayatollah Ahmad al-Baghdadi pointed out, the need for Muslims to wage offensive jihad “is not the opinion of Ahmad al-Husseini al-Baghdadi… This is the word of Allah!” Nor is it the “opinion” of ISIS Caliph Abu Bakr, al-Qaeda leader Ayman Zawahiri, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, or any of the other countless past and present jihadis. No, jihad to conquer and bring Sharia to non-Muslims is the command of Allah.

Franklin Graham Just Responded To Paris Attacks With 6 Words No One Else Would Dare Say
Jack Davis November 16, 2015 at 12:14pm
The root of the evil that has put Paris in mourning and threatens Western civilization is not to be found in long-winded speeches about economic justice, according to Rev. Franklin Graham. It comes down to a religion that seeks to crush everything the West holds dear. “Islam is not a peaceful religion,” Graham said Saturday on Facebook. “In the hours after the horrific attacks some said ‘TERRORISM HAS NO RELIGION.’ Do not be fooled. This attack was done in the name of Allah, the god of Islam,” Graham posted. “Eye witness reports say that the murderers yelled, ‘Allahu Akbar’ before committing their atrocities…In this case terrorism does have a religion – its name is Islam and its god is Allah,” he wrote. Graham called for world leaders to respond properly. “Islam is at war with us – we’ve witnessed its evil face firsthand over and over,” Graham posted. “And today the world wakes up to their threats…Reports say they have also posted: ‘The American blood is best – And we will take it soon.'” Graham urged followers to “pray for wisdom for the world’s leaders and that Islam will be stopped in its tracks.” Graham also warned America of its own danger. “We must reform our immigration policies in the United States,” Graham wrote. “We cannot allow Muslim immigrants to come across our borders unchecked while we are fighting this war on terror. If we continue to allow Muslim immigration, we’ll see much more of what happened in Paris—it’s on our doorstep.” etc. and the news story continues..

Franklin Graham, son of international evangelist Billy Graham, has lashed out at President Barack Obama’s visit to a mosque, saying on Facebook that “the foundations of this nation have nothing to do with Islam.” They have “everything to do with the Church of Jesus Christ,” said Graham, head of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the Samaritan’s Purse global charity. “Islam cannot save anyone from hell or open the gates of heaven. “Only One can do that: Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who paid the debt of sin for all mankind by giving His life as a sacrifice on Calvary’s cross — where he suffered and died for our sins, took our sins to the grave, and on the third day, God raised Him triumphantly to life.” President Obama visited the mosque, located outside Baltimore, in a deliberate rebuke to Republicans, whom White House aides say have stoked Islamophobia and bigotry following terror attacks inspired by the Islamic State around the world. But Graham said that Jesus Christ is “alive today. Muhammad is dead. “I worship a risen Lord,” he added. “Islam can’t compete with that.” ISLAM VERSUS CHRISTIANITY Islam is a religious system begun in the seventh century by Muhammad. Muslims follow the teachings of the Qur’an and strive to keep the Five Pillars. In the seventh century, Muhammad claimed the angel Gabriel visited him. During these angelic visitations, which continued for about 23 years until Muhammad’s death, the angel purportedly revealed to Muhammad the words of Allah (the Arabic word for “God” used by Muslims). These dictated revelations compose the Qur’an, Islam’s holy book. Islam means “submission,” deriving from a root word that means “peace.” The word Muslim means “one who submits to Allah.”
Muslims summarize their doctrine in six articles of faith:
Belief in one Allah: Muslims believe Allah is one, eternal, creator, and sovereign.
Belief in the angels
Belief in the prophets: The prophets include the biblical prophets but end with Muhammad as Allah’s final prophet.
Belief in the revelations of Allah: Muslims accept certain portions of the Bible, such as the Torah and the Gospels. They believe the Qur’an is the preexistent, perfect word of Allah.
Belief in the last day of judgment and the hereafter: Everyone will be resurrected for judgment into either paradise or hell.
Belief in predestination: Muslims believe Allah has decreed everything that will happen. Muslims testify to Allah’s sovereignty with their frequent phrase, inshallah, meaning, “if God wills.”
These five tenets compose the framework of obedience for Muslims:
The testimony of faith (shahada): “la ilaha illa allah. Muhammad rasul Allah.” This means, “There is no deity but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” A person can convert to Islam by stating this creed. The shahada shows that a Muslim believes in Allah alone as deity and believes that Muhammad reveals Allah.
Prayer (salat): Five ritual prayers must be performed every day.
Giving (zakat): This almsgiving is a certain percentage given once a year.
Fasting (sawm): Muslims fast during Ramadan in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. They must not eat or drink from dawn until sunset.
Pilgrimage (hajj): If physically and financially possible, a Muslim must make the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia at least once. The hajj is performed in the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar. A Muslim’s entrance into paradise hinges on obedience to these Five Pillars. Still, Allah may reject them. Even Muhammad was not sure whether Allah would admit him to paradise (Surah 46:9; Hadith 5.266). An Evaluation of Islam Compared to Christianity, Islam has some similarities but significant differences. Like Christianity, Islam is monotheistic. However, Muslims reject the Trinity—that God has revealed Himself as one in three Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Muslims claim that Jesus was one of the most important prophets—not God’s Son. Islam asserts that Jesus, though born of a virgin, was created like Adam. Muslims do not believe Jesus died on the cross. They do not understand why Allah would allow His prophet Isa (the Islamic word for “Jesus”) to die a torturous death. Yet the Bible shows how the death of the perfect Son of God was essential to pay for the sins of believers (Isaiah 53:5-6; John 3:16; 14:6; 1 Peter 2:24). Islam teaches that the Qur’an is the final authority and the last revelation of Allah. The Bible, however, was completed in the first century with the Book of Revelation. The Bible warns against anyone adding to or subtracting from God’s Word (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:6; Galatians 1:6-12; Revelation 22:18). The Qur’an, as a claimed addition to God’s Word, directly disobeys God’s command. Muslims believe that paradise can be earned through keeping the Five Pillars. The Bible, in contrast, reveals that sinful man can never measure up to the holy God (Romans 3:23; 6:23). Only by God’s grace may sinners be saved through repentant faith in Jesus (Acts 20:21; Ephesians 2:8-9). Because of these essential differences and contradictions, Islam and Christianity cannot both be true. The Bible and Qur’an cannot both be God’s Word. The truth has eternal consequences. “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world” – 1 John 4:1-4

Islam to a man is like rabies to a dog. - Winston Churchill
No one listened !!! UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!!!!
The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press'. The author (Dale Lindsborg) is employed by none other than the very liberal Washington Post!!
From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171...During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It".
NOW GET THIS !! - - - - -
'Senator' Obama replied:
"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."
(ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)
Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.
It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of waring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails - - - perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ."
When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".
"Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path.. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America
FROM A WHILE AGO, BUT……
Yes, you read it right.
I, for one, am speechless!!!
Dale Lindsborg, Washington Post
This is a politician who answers a question honestly, without beating around the bush. Can you name one Muslim country that has freedom of speech? Here is one of the new congressmen from Florida, a former Army Officer, Lt. Colonel Allen West, answering an inquiry and explaining very definitively in just over a minute the truth about Islam.

America’s most biblically hostile US president
By DAVID BARTON (The Blaze)
When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, etc..
Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of biblical faith.
1. Acts of hostility toward people of biblical faith:
April 2008 – Obama speaks disrespectfully of Christians, saying they “cling to guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who aren’t like them.”
February 2009 – Obama announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs, and fully implements the plan in February 2011.
April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name be covered when he is making his speech.
May 2009 – Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House.
April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, Obama nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three.

February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress.
April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring.

August 2010 – Obama speaks with great praise of Islam and condescendingly of Christianity.
August 2010 – Obama went to great lengths to speak out on multiple occasions on behalf of building an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero, while at the same time he was silent about a Christian church being denied permission to rebuild at that location.
2010 – While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid al-Adha.
October 2011 – Obama’s Muslim advisers block Middle Eastern Christians’ access to the White House.
February 2012 – The Obama administration makes effulgent apologies for Korans being burned by the U. S. military, but when Bibles were burned by the military, numerous reasons were offered why it was the right thing to do.
Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of President Obama toward biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.

What does it take for a liberal hostage to lose his illusions about Islam?
Robert Spencer Nov 12, 2014 at 8:23am
Daniel Greenfield provides excellent commentary here on a liberal hostage whose knowledge of Islam and the Qur’an, and his bitter personal experience as a hostage of jihadists, don’t shake his fashionable illusions. Note also that all this happened to him at the hands of the “moderate,” Obama-backed Free Syrian Army.
…Theo Padnos’ account of his time as a hostage is honestly told. This is a man who studied in a “religious academy”, who could quote verses from the Koran, who fell into a nightmare in which he discovered what Islam really was.I began my studies in a neighborhood mosque, then enrolled in a religious school popular among those who dream of a “back to the days of the prophet” version of Islam. Later, I moved to Syria to study at a religious academy in Damascus Somehow none of that alerted him to the difference between what Muslims believe and what liberals think they believe. Padnos believed that the Free Syrian Army was some kind of resistance group, instead of another name for a bunch of Islamist militias with ties to Al Qaeda. He learned his mistake in the worst way possible.
One afternoon in Antakya, I met three young Syrians. They seemed a bit shifty, but not, as far as I could tell, more militantly Islamic than anyone else. “Our job is to bring stuff from here to the Free Syrian Army,” they told me. They offered to take me with them. Thinking I’d be back in a few days, I told no one, not even my Tunisian roommate, where I was going. …When we were done, the cameraman smiled, walked across the room and kicked me in the face. His friends held me down. Abu Osama stomped on my chest, then called out for handcuffs. Someone else bound my feet. The cameraman aimed a pistol at my head. “We’re from Al Tanzeem Al Qaeda,” Abu Osama said, grinning. “You didn’t know?” He told me I would be killed within the week if my family didn’t provide the cash equivalent of a quarter kilogram of gold — which the kidnappers thought was about $400,000 but was actually closer to $10,000 — the sum to which he was entitled, he said, by the laws of Islam. … Note the “Laws of Islam” part of it. At this point he might have escaped and been safe, but he still believed the nonsense about Islam and the Free Syrian army. That night, I slipped out of the handcuffs that attached me to one of the sleeping men. In the soft sunlight of the Syrian dawn, I sprinted past walls covered in graffiti, through a cemetery and over a median strip, then stopped a passing minibus. “Take me to the Free Syrian Army right away,” I said. “This is an emergency.” When I arrived at the F.S.A. headquarters, I appealed to the officers in the most desperate terms. They argued a bit among themselves, then took me to an Islamic court, where a judge questioned me and remanded me to a cell that had been converted from a Turkish toilet. There were prisoners in the cells on either side of me. I poked my head through a food hatch. A 10-year-old boy did the same. “What did you do?” I said. He withdrew, and a middle-aged man, his father, I presumed, poked his head out. “What did you do?” I repeated. A helpless grin appeared on his face. “We’re Shia,” he said. “I see,” I said. Ten minutes later, the F.S.A. officers returned, accompanied by my kidnappers, and I was trundled into a car and taken to an F.S.A. safe house. There I was placed in a hole in the ground. Was I six feet below the surface? Only three? I didn’t know. Officers threw dirt on me, laughing and shouting insults. Someone jumped down and landed on my chest. Someone else beat me with the butt of his Kalashnikov. One officer insisted that I reply to his questions by yelling out, “I am filth, sir!” These are McCain’s moderate friendly secular rebels whom we’re supposed to be funding. But did Padnos really think, after all his studies of Islam, that an Islamic mediation would result in a captive of a Muslim force being freed? That would be most un-Islamic. The FSA followed Islamic law. The F.S.A., it turned out, had given me to the Nusra Front, or Jebhat al Nusra, which was using the Children’s Hospital in Aleppo as a headquarters and a prison. Al-Nusra is also Al Qaeda and currently ISIS. It seemed to me that I had been walking calmly through an olive grove with Syrian friends, that a rent in the earth had opened, that I had fallen into the darkness and woken in a netherworld, the kind found in myths or nightmares. It didn’t reach him that he never had any Syrian friends. The Koran commands Muslims not to take non-Muslims as friends.
What was happening to him was caused by Islam, by Islamic xenophobia, hate and supremacism. These were good Muslims. The problem is that good Muslims, like good Nazis or good Communists, are terrible human beings. … The leader — I’m not sure who it was, I couldn’t see — carried a heavy stick and a cattle prod. As I lay there, he hit me across the back of the head, then strolled around the room reciting prayers. … During an interrogation session, the Kurd, who liked to be called Sheikh Kawa, nodded at a prisoner whose wrists were cuffed to a pipe just beneath the ceiling. His feet bicycled through the air. “You must let me down, for the sake of Allah! For the sake of Muhammad and Allah!” he screamed. “This is our music!” Kawa yelled at me. “Do you hear it?” … When religious authorities or higher-ranking Nusra Front members — anyone with bodyguards — came by my cell, I sometimes recited verses from the Quran. These were verses that I loved, and the visitors seemed pleased. But the net result of these recitations was . . . nothing. Eventually, one of the more educated guards explained to me that as a Christian and an American, I was his enemy. Islam compelled him to hate me. “Does it really?” I asked… Anyway, the Quran forbade amicable relations: “O you who believe!” this guard would recite. “Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. And whoso among you takes them for friends is indeed one of them.” That’s Qur’an 5:51. There you go. You don’t have Muslim friends. You have Muslim acquaintances who will kidnap you or slit your throat the moment it’s in their interest to do so because their religion tells them that you aren’t really a person. Converting to Islam doesn’t help because the religion is partly racial. Muslims look down on Dhimmi converts. It was January 2013 when the prison administration began offering me the opportunity to convert to Islam. Every day, the guards preached to me and recited the Quran. In Arabic, you don’t convert to Islam, you “submit” to it. “Ya, Bitar” (“O, Peter”), the fighters would say, “why haven’t you submitted yet?” For a while, I thought that if I submitted, my life would improve, but I soon learned that even conversion would not help me… Matt asked for an English-language Quran. A guard gave it to him. A few days later, Matt said the magic words — “I testify that there is no god but God and that Muhammad is his prophet” — in front of witnesses. When word got around that Matt had converted, the younger fighters would point at him and say, “You, good!” Then they would point at me and say, “You, bad!” But the conversion did not get Matt better food, and it certainly did not get him home. Once, one of the more volatile guards slapped him as we were being taken to the bathroom. “You, bad!” he said to Matt. “You lie about religion.” The guard nodded at me. “You, you Christian,” he said. “You, good.” But having learned nothing, he tries to make contact with the Free Syrian Army… even though it was the FSA that put him here. I returned to the F.S.A. troops. One told me that his unit had recently traveled to Jordan to receive training from American forces in fighting groups like the Nusra Front. “Really?” I said. “The Americans? I hope it was good training.” “Certainly, very,” he replied. The fighters stared at me. I stared at them. After a few moments, I asked, “About this business of fighting Jebhat al Nusra?”
“Oh, that,” one said. “We lied to the Americans about that.” And they still are. We’re arming and training Al Qaeda.
I listened to the fighters musing about their futures. “Hey, Abu Petra,” they asked me, “what is Sweden like?” If they were to present themselves as Syrian dissidents to the authorities, what would happen next? Was I familiar with the procedures in Sweden for seeking political asylum? And what about Berlin, supposing they found their way to Germany? How long would it take for them to learn German? Yup. Some of these guys are coming to a place near you. By this point, I knew better than to seek refuge among the “moderates” of the Free Syrian Army. That was progress… but he still thought that he could find refuge with Muslims. Any Muslims. At the hospital, a dour-looking man greeted me. “I am a journalist,” I said. “From Ireland. Please, you must help me. I love the Syrian people.” “Don’t worry,” he said. “I am the F.S.A.” He admitted me to an inner room. “No one comes in here without my leave,” he said. “You can relax. You are safe.” I asked if I could contact my family. “Of course,” he said. The easiest way, he said, was for me to send an email. But the man with the computer’s password was away. It would take just a few minutes for him to get to the hospital. Did I need tea? Medical attention? The F.S.A. soldier stepped out. Ten minutes later, he returned, beckoning me with the index finger of his right hand. He seemed to do it in slow motion, as a jailer might summon an innocent prisoner to his execution. In the front hallway of the hospital stood a group of about 15 Nusra Front fighters, Kalashnikovs dangling from their right hands. No one spoke. A few seconds passed, and then someone said in a barely audible voice, “Come, American." At this point we ought to be bombing the FSA. Earlier, in March, the Nusra Front commanders in Deir al-Zour put a pair of Islamic State commanders in the cells on either side of mine… “But surely,” I said, “this violence is not good for Islam.” They temporized… Assad was bound to slink away into the undergrowth. The battle against his forces was just a skirmish in the great global combat to come, in which the believers would prevail against the unbelievers. “After we conquer Jerusalem, we will conquer Rome,” Abu Amran told me. “No one is trying to conquer you,” I said. “Why do you want to conquer everybody?” Because Muhammad said so: “The Messenger of Allah sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam was asked: ‘Which of these two cities will be conquered first, Constantinople or Rome?’ He said, ‘The city of Heraclius will first be conquered.’ He meant Constantinople.” (Al-Hakim, Al-Mustadrak, 4.508) Note that he didn’t say that Rome would not be conquered by the Muslims; he just said that Constantinople would be conquered first. Over the last 22 months, I had stopped being surprised when Nusra Front commanders introduced their 8-year-old sons to me by saying, “He will be a suicide martyr someday, by the will of God.” The children participated in the torture sessions. Around the prisons, they wore large pouches with red wires sticking out of them — apparently suicide belts — and sang their “destroy the Jews, death to America” anthems in the hallways. The Nusra Front higher-ups were inviting Westerners to the jihad in Syria not so much because they needed more foot soldiers — they didn’t — but because they want to teach the Westerners to take the struggle into every neighborhood and subway station back home. They want these Westerners to train their 8-year-olds to do the same. Over time, they said, the jihadists would carve mini-Islamic emirates out of the Western countries, as the Islamic State had done in Syria and Iraq. There, Western Muslims would at last live with dignity, under a true Quranic dispensation. And that takes us right back to reality. This is about a Clash of Civilizations and it only took him years of being surrounded by Jihadists to grasp that….

Captured ISIS Fighter: Joining Extremists in Syria Ruined My Life
by Keir Simmons and Charlene Gubash EXCLUSIVE News ISIS Terror Jul 27 2015, 1:41 pm ET
RIMELAN, Syria — A college dropout who surrendered after just three days of fighting for ISIS told NBC News that joining the militant group was the worst decision he ever made. "They burn your life, they leave nothing," the 24-year-old said from a Kurdish-run Syria where he has been held since being captured just over a month ago. "I can't do anything now. If I go to them [ISIS], they will kill me. If I go to Turkey, they will arrest me. If I stay here, I will go to prison. I have nothing. The only escape for me is death." He added: "I have no life, no future." The prisoner was brought out of his cell blindfolded and handcuffed during NBC News' visit to the Asayisa Rimelan compound in the northeastern Syrian town of Rimelan on Friday. At NBC News' request, his Kurdish captors removed these restraints and left the room while he was being interviewed. He spoke on condition his name and face were not revealed. His version of events was corroborated by the prison director. The events were also confirmed by Rami Abdulrahman, the founder of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and an internationally recognized source for information on attacks and casualties. The man said he joined ISIS to get away from his life in Turkey, where he had few friends and his parents were pressuring him to study, marry and "straighten up" his life. "My life was hard and nobody liked me," he said while crying. "I didn't have many friends. I was on the Internet a lot and playing games." He said he dropped out of college before crossing the border into Syria to join ISIS, The prisoner was promised $50 per month along with a house and a wife. ISIS members also showed him "videos that made it look amazing," he said. But he said that life under the group was not what he hoped. "They told us, 'When you capture someone, you will behead them,'" he said. "But as for me, I have never even beheaded a chicken… It is not easy… I can't do that." He said that ISIS leaders justified their beheadings by saying it was necessary to "instill fear" and ensure "people run away from us." He said he was told by the group that it killed homosexuals by throwing them off tall buildings because "they are half men, like women." And executing women was justified to him, he claimed, because "they were killing these women who were adulterers." The prisoner said he disagreed. "Nobody likes to kill anyone," he said. "I don't accept that, nobody accepts that, Muslim or non-Muslim, and nobody likes anyone to be killed without reason." He said that the U.S.-led bombing campaign had taken a psychological toll on ISIS fighters. But his superiors told him: "The jets are in the sky, but God is above the jets." Related: Why This Single Dad Left the Bronx to Fight ISIS The prisoner said he trained with the Sunni group for just over two months, which involved time spent on weapons, fitness and religion. But just three days after he was sent to the town of Tal Abyad — which is located on Syria-Turkey border — a bombing raid killed six of the fighters he was with. "I got scared because in my whole life I hadn't seen anything like this," he said of the airstrike. "And since I was scared, I threw my pistol away and my legs couldn't hold me." He added: "When we heard the sound of bombing, we could have died of fear ... I decided to surrender in order not to be killed."

Submission: What is the meaning of peace in Islam
By Diane Weber Bederman January 10, 2015
Terrorism is in our living rooms, today. We are watching France deal with fear. All the while we hear pundits and every-day people speak about peace in Islam: remind us that Islam is a religion of peace. It is. But the question we fail to ask is “What is the meaning of peace in Islam?”
Words have different meanings through time and in different countries. Fag and gay are two words whose meanings have changed over time and in different countries. Peace is another. In the West peace means a state or period of mutual concord between governments and a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity.”In Islam peace has a different meaning. And it is important that we understand that meaning when we talk about peace with Muslim leaders, especially those who represent Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, al Qaeda. Peace in Islam means submission to Allah. The ultimate meaning of Islamic peace is all of us living in Dar-al-Islam—the house of submission. This is not a “radical” interpretation. Modern-day Islamic scholar, Ibrahim Sulaiman, says submission and peace can be very different concepts, even if a form of peace is often brought about through forcing others into submission. “Jihad is not inhumane, despite its necessary violence and bloodshed, its ultimate desire is peace which is protected and enhanced by the rule of law.” Armed responses are only permitted when all peaceful possibilities have failed. And once armed resistance begins it doesn’t stop “until the war lays down its burden” as Allah has mentioned in the Qur’an 47. These ideas are foreign to us in the West. But that does not make them any less true or binding on those who believe. To shrug them off as radical is to disrespect Islam. Shaykh Muhammad Sa’id Ramadan al-Buti, until his recent death, was the leading Islamic scholar in Syria, professor and a retired Dean at the College of Islamic Law at Damascus University. He is the author of Jurisprudence of the Prophetic Biography, regarded as one of the best Prophetic biographies written in the 20th century. He wrote:
“The theory that our religion is a peaceful and loving religion is a wrong theory. The Holy war as it is known in Islamic jurisprudence is basically an offensive war, and it is the duty of all Muslims of every age…because our prophet Muhammad said that he is ordered by Allah to fight all people until they say ‘No God but Allah,’ and he is his messenger. It is meaningless to talk about the holy war as only defensive, otherwise, what did the prophet mean when he said, “from now on even if they don’t invade you, you must invade them.”
The late Egyptian scholar, Sayyid Qutb, a prolific,well-respected author whose works are quoted in the Muslim world and influenced members of the Muslim Brotherhood has written
“The theory that our religion is a peaceful and loving religion is a wrong theory. The Holy war as it is known in Islamic jurisprudence is basically an offensive war, and it is the duty of all Muslims of every age…because our prophet Muhammad said that he is ordered by Allah to fight all people until they say ‘No God but Allah,’ and he is his messenger.”
He also wrote that western democracy is infertile of life-giving ideas, that obedience to Shari’ah is necessary to achieve harmony and peace for mankind. He preached “When Islam strives for peace, its objective is not that superficial peace which requires that only that part of the earth where the followers of Islam are residing remain secure. The peace which Islam desires is that the religion (i.e. the Law of the society) be purified for God, that the obedience of all people be for God alone.”Qutb specifically claims the conquest of non-Muslim states as “a movement to wipe out tyranny and to introduce true freedom to mankind. A true Muslim not only has no loyalty to any country “where the Islamic Shari’ah is not enforced,” but must be prepared to fight against such countries. Translations of his work exist in every Arabic language, including Farsi, the language spoken in Iran. Ayatullah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, who was appointed as Iran’s Supreme Leader after the death of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989, did the translations. The leaders of Iran are followers of Qutb. Anjem Choudary, the British Muslim cleric who has a very large following clearly defines the meaning of peace in Islam. “Contrary to popular misconception, Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone. Therefore, Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression, as their speech and actions are determined by divine revelation and not based on people’s desires.” We are not being tolerant of others when we dismiss them as radical, we refuse to listen to them, to their understanding of the meaning of peace and submission. It isn’t a question of promoting one culture as better or worse than another. It is being realistic. Believe the meaning of the words that others say. When talking peace nothing could be more important.

Islamic State (ISIS) releases a Guide to Buying and Selling Female Slaves
The Research and Fatwa Department of the Islamic State (ISIS) has released a pamphlet with ‘Questions and Answers on Taking Captives and Slaves.’
MEMRI It was presumably released in response to the uproar caused by the many reports this summer that ISIS had taken Yazidi girls and women as sex slaves. Written in the form of questions and answers, it clarifies the position of Islamic law (as ISIS interprets it) on various relevant issues, and states, among other things, that it is permissible to have sexual intercourse with non-Muslim slaves, including young girls, and that it is also permitted to beat them and trade in them.
“Question 1: What is al-sabi?
“Al-Sabi is a woman from among ahl al-harb [the people of war] who has been captured by Muslims.
“Question 2: What makes al-sabi permissible?
“What makes al-sabi permissible [i.e., what makes it permissible to take such a woman captive] is [her] unbelief. Unbelieving [women] who were captured and brought into the abode of Islam are permissible to us, after the imam distributes them [among us].”
“Question 3: Can all unbelieving women be taken captive?
“There is no dispute among the scholars that it is permissible to capture unbelieving women [who are characterized by] original unbelief [kufr asli], such as the kitabiyat [women from among the People of the Book, i.e. Jews and Christians] and polytheists. However, [the scholars] are disputed over [the issue of] capturing apostate women. The consensus leans towards forbidding it, though some people of knowledge think it permissible. We [ISIS] lean towards accepting the consensus…”
“Question 4: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive?
“It is permissible to have sexual intercourse with the female captive. Allah the almighty said: ‘[Successful are the believers] who guard their chastity, except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then they are free from blame [Koran 23:5-6]’…”
“Question 5: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive immediately after taking possession [of her]?
“If she is a virgin, he [her master] can have intercourse with her immediately after taking possession of her. However, is she isn’t, her uterus must be purified [first]…”
“Question 6: Is it permissible to sell a female captive?
“It is permissible to buy, sell, or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property, which can be disposed of [as long as that doesn’t cause [the Muslim ummah] any harm or damage.”
“Question 7: Is it permissible to separate a mother from her children through [the act of] buying and selling?
“It is not permissible to separate a mother from her prepubescent children through buying, selling or giving away [a captive or slave]. [But] it is permissible to separate them if the children are grown and mature.”
“Question 8: If two or more [men] buy a female captive together, does she then become [sexually] permissible to each of them?
“It is forbidden to have intercourse with a female captive if [the master] does not own her exclusively. One who owns [a captive] in partnership [with others] may not have sexual intercourse with her until the other [owners] sell or give him [their share].”
“Question 9: If the female captive was impregnated by her owner, can he then sell her?
“He can’t sell her if she becomes the mother of a child…”
“Question 10: If a man dies, what is the law regarding the female captive he owned?
“Female captives are distributed as part of his estate, just as all [other parts] of his estate [are distributed]. However, they may only provide services, not intercourse, if a father or [one of the] sons has already had intercourse with them, or if several [people] inherit them in partnership.”
“Question 11: May a man have intercourse with the female slave of his wife?
“A man may not have intercourse with the female slave of his wife, because [the slave] is owned by someone else.”
“Question 12: May a man kiss the female slave of another, with the owner’s permission?
“A man may not kiss the female slave of another, for kissing [involves] pleasure, and pleasure is prohibited unless [the man] owns [the slave] exclusively.”
“Question 13: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female slave who has not reached puberty?
“It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse; however if she is not fit for intercourse, then it is enough to enjoy her without intercourse.”
“Question 14: What private parts of the female slave’s body must be concealed during prayer?
“Her private body parts [that must be concealed] during prayer are the same as those [that must be concealed] outside [prayer], and they [include] everything besides the head, neck, hands and feet.”
“Question 15: May a female slave meet foreign men without wearing a hijab?
“A female slave is allowed to expose her head, neck, hands, and feet in front of foreign men if fitna [enticement] can be avoided. However, if fitna is present, or of there is fear that it will occur, then it [i.e. exposing these body parts becomes] forbidden.”
“Question 16: Can two sisters be taken together while taking slaves?
“It is permissible to have two sisters, a female slave and her aunt [her father’s sister], or a female slave and her aunt [from her mother’s side]. But they cannot be together during intercourse, [and] whoever has intercourse with one of them cannot have intercourse with the other, due to the general [consensus] over the prohibition of this.”
“Question 17: What is al-‘azl?
“Al-‘azl is refraining from ejaculating on a woman’s pudendum [i.e. coitus interruptus].”
“Question 18: May a man use the al-‘azl [technique] with his female slave?
“A man is allowed [to use] al-‘azl during intercourse with his female slave with or without her consent.”
“Question 19: Is it permissible to beat a female slave?
“It is permissible to beat the female slave as a [form of] darb ta’deeb [disciplinary beating], [but] it is forbidden to [use] darb al-takseer [literally, breaking beating], [darb] al-tashaffi [beating for the purpose of achieving gratification], or [darb] al-ta’dheeb [torture beating]. Further, it is forbidden to hit the face.”
Question 20: What is the ruling regarding a female slave who runs away from her master?
“A male or female slave’s running away [from their master] is among the gravest of sins…”
“Question 21: What is the earthly punishment of a female slave who runs away from her master?
“She [i.e. the female slave who runs away from her master] has no punishment according to the shari’a of Allah; however, she is [to be] reprimanded [in such a way that] deters others like her from escaping.”
“Question 22: Is it permissible to marry a Muslim [slave] or a kitabiyya [i.e. Jewish or Christian] female slave?
“It is impermissible for a free [man] to marry Muslim or kitabiyat female slaves, except for those [men] who feared to [commit] a sin, that is, the sin of fornication…”
“Question 24: If a man marries a female slave who is owned by someone else, who is allowed to have intercourse with her?
“A master is prohibited from having intercourse with his female slave who is married to someone else; instead, the master receives her service, [while] the husband [gets to] enjoy her [sexually].”
“Question 25: Are the huddoud [Koranic punishments] applied to female slaves?
“If a female slave committed what necessitated the enforcement of a hadd [on her], a hadd [is then] enforced on her – however, the hadd is reduced by half within the hudud that accepts reduction by half…”
“Question 27: What is the reward for freeing a slave girl?
“Allah the exalted said [in the Koran]: ‘And what can make you know what is [breaking through] the difficult pass [hell]? It is the freeing of a slave.’ And [the prophet Muhammad] said: ‘Whoever frees a believer Allah frees every organ of his body from hellfire.'”
Any end time events coming?
In 1952 President Truman established one day a year as a "National Day of Prayer." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------- In 1988 President Reagan designated the First Thursday in May of each year as the National Day of Prayer. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------- In June 2007 (then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama declared that the USA "Was no longer a Christian nation." --------------------------------------------------------------- This year President Obama canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse Of "not wanting to offend anyone" ------------------------------------------------------------------------ BUT... on September 25, 2009 from 4 AM until 7 PM, a National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION was Held on Capitol Hill, Beside the White House. There were over 50,000 Muslims in D.C. that day. HE PRAYS WITH THE MUSLIMS! I guess it Doesn't matter if "Christians" Are offended by this event - We obviously Don 't count as "anyone" Anymore. The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian, especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted, they should be annihilated.

A Maryland high school punished a student for refusing to profess faith in Islam, gave her failing grades for a series of assignments that violated her Christian beliefs then threatened her father with arrest for complaining, a federal lawsuit charges. The suit was filed in U.S. District Court against the Charles County Public Schools in La Plata, Maryland, its board of education, Principal Evelyn Arnold and Vice Principal Shannon Morris by the Thomas More Law Center. A spokeswoman for the district told WND that officials were aware of the issue but said Arnold and Morris would not be commenting. Plaintiffs are Marine Corps veteran John Kevin Wood and his wife, Melissa, who “refuse[d] to allow their teenage daughter to be subjected to Islamic indoctrination and propaganda in her high school world history class.” The lawsuit charges that the defendants’ “curriculum, practices, policies, actions, procedures, and customs promote the Islamic faith by requiring students to profess the five pillars if Islam.” The students, the complaint says, were required to “write out and confess the shahada, the Islamic profession of faith.” The lawsuit charges that school officials concealed the curriculum by using two separate history textbooks, one of which contained the Islamic teachings and which students were required to leave at school. The other, which did not contain the teachings, was allowed to be taken home, the complaint explains. The school also excised the Islamic teachings from the course syllabus. “Defendants have treated plaintiffs’ Christian beliefs and heritage with deliberate indifference, and have been hostile toward C.W. [the student] and her family,” the complaint alleges. It explains that Arnold and Morris violated the First and Fourteenth Amendments as well as state and federal law by “depriving plaintiffs and C.W. of their fundamental right to be free from a public school’s promotion of certain religious beliefs, their fundamental right to be able to speak freely and raise concerns about religion being taught in our public schools without retaliation, and their fundamental right to be free from unjust discrimination against their Christian heritage.” The legal team notes the shahada states, “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” “For non-Muslims, reciting the statement is sufficient to convert one to Islam,” the complaint says. “Moreover, the second part of the statement, ‘Muhammad is the messenger of Allah,’ signifies the person has accepted Muhammad as their spiritual leader. The teenager was also required to memorize and recite the Five Pillars of Islam.” Not only did the district refuse permission for C.W. to opt out of the religious assignments, it imposed grades of zero. Further, the complaint says, the district disparaged Christianity in multiple ways, including the statement, “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.” The district taught that the West engages in “imperialistic pursuits” and insists “men are the managers of women.” It also taught: “To Muslims, Allah is the same god that is worshipped in Christianity and Judaism.” The district’s teachings specified that the Quran “is the word of Allah,” while Jews and Christians “believe the Torah and the Gospels were revealed to Moses and the New Testament writers.” “The sugarcoated version of Islam taught at La Plata High School did not mention that the Quran explicitly instructs Muslims ‘to kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.’ (Sura 9-5),” the complaint says. John Kevin Wood discovered the teachings and called to voice his objections, the lawsuit says, but the school imposed a “no trespass” order against him, threatening him with arrest if he came onto school property. The school refused to give him any opportunity “to refute the untrue allegations” made by Arnold. “The Woods, as Christians, believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and our Savior, that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, and that following the teachings of Jesus Christ is the only path to eternal salvation. The Woods believe that it is a sin to profess commitment in word or writing to any god other than the Christian God. Thus, they object to their daughter being forced to deny the Christian God and to her high school promoting Islam over other religions,” the lawsuit explains. “The school ultimately refused to allow the Woods’ daughter to opt-out of the assignments, forcing her to either violate her faith by pledging to Allah or receive zeros for the assignments. Together, John Kevin Wood, Melissa Wood, and their daughter chose to remain faithful to God and refused to complete the assignments, even though failing grades would harm her future admission to college and her opportunities to obtain college scholarships.” Wood was deployed in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm “and lost friends to Islamic extremists,” the complaint notes. Later, he “responded as a firefighter to the 9/11 Islamic terror attack on the Pentagon.” “Wood witnessed firsthand the destruction created in the name of Allah and knows that Islam is not ‘a religion of peace.’ The school prevented John Kevin Wood from defending his daughter’s Christian beliefs against Islamic indoctrination, even though as a Marine, he stood in harm’s way to defend our nation, and the Charles County Public Schools,” the lawsuit says. image: http://mobile.wnd.com/files/2016/01/IslamWorksheet.jpg Part of a school worksheet promoting Islam “Defendants forced [the] Woods daughter to disparage her Christian faith by reciting the shahada, and acknowledging Mohammed as her spiritual leader. Her world history class spent one day on Christianity and two weeks immersed in Islam. Such discriminatory treatment of Christianity is an unconstitutional promotion of one religion over another,” said Thomas More Law Center President Richard Thompson. The lawsuit concludes: “Defendants deliberately [chose] this curriculum, instructional materials, and texts, and punished Christian students who disagree with espousing religious statements and reproducing religious doctrine that promotes Islam. The actions, policies, procedures, customs, and curriculum of defendants unconstitutionally endorse the Islamic religion.” As a result, it says, the Christian family suffered “irreparable harm, including the loss of their fundamental constitutional rights, entitling them to declaratory and injunctive relief.” “Defendants, by requiring C.W. to make reference to a belief in the Muslim god, forced C.W. to directly violate her sincerely held religious beliefs. Defendants did not allow C.W. to opt out of these assignments or receive alternative assignments. Defendants refused to accommodate C.W.’s Christian beliefs. Instead, defendants coerced and punished C.W. for refusing to violate her Christian beliefs,” the claim explains.

Is Christian Persecution Reaching Biblical Proportions?
Sunday, March 01, 2015
Evangelist Franklin Graham says President Obama is sympathetic to Islam and is giving Muslim groups access to influence U.S. foreign policy, which eventually will lead to persecution of Christians and Jews in America. In an exclusive interview on CBN’s 700 Club Interactive program, Graham told host Gordon Robertson that the president’s upbringing is the reason he favors Islam. “We’re going to see persecution in this country because our president is very sympathetic to Islam and the reason I say that, Gordon, is because his father was a Muslim, gave him a Muslim name, Barack Hussein Obama. His mother married another Muslim man, they moved to Indonesia, he went to Indonesian schools. So, growing up his frame of reference and his influence as a young man was Islam. It wasn’t Christianity, it was Islam,” he said. Graham, who heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the Christian relief agency Samaritan’s Purse, has been outspoken in his criticism of President Obama. He said the president has opened the doors of the White House to Muslim groups who are shaping foreign policy, including how the administration views the war on terror and especially U.S. relations with Israel. “There are Muslims that have access to him in the White House. Our foreign policy has a lot of influence now, from Muslims. We see the Prime Minister of Israel being snubbed by the President and by the White House and by the Democrats and it’s because of the influence of Islam. They hate Israel and they hate Christians, and so the storm is coming I believe Gordon,” the evangelist said. Graham agreed it was President Bush who first sought out Muslim groups for advice after the terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001. “After 9-11 the Bush Administration began to allow Muslims to come into various governmental agencies to advise us how to respond to Muslims and how to respond to Islam. …What’s happened is you now have radical Islamists who are advising various levels of government and it’s going to get worse and nobody seems to be alarmed about it. Nobody is saying anything about this and we as Christians are going to lose.” Viewers can see the full interview on the 700 Club Interactive on Monday, March 2 on the ABC Family at 9:30 am EDT.

15 'Signs of the Times' Indicating Judgment
10:30AM EDT 10/22/2014 Larry Tomczak
The Bible warns us about saying "everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation" (1 Pet. 3:4) when judgment is at hand. We know that God is "patient not wanting anyone to perish" (v.9), but there comes a time when the gavel falls!
After Hurricane Katrina, I spoke with a former resident of Louisiana. He told me he grew up hearing warnings of levies breaking but folks simply tuned it out when nothing happened. This describes America today. If you fell asleep like a Rip Van Winkle for 30 years and awoke today, imagine how shocked you would be at what happened to America.
1. Divorce: Increased from 4% to 51% in one generation.
2. Cohabitation: 65% of "altar-bound" singles live together, a euphemism for lifestyle fornication.
3. Abortion: 57 million unborn babies aborted, some with taxpayer funding and now part of socialized medicine.
4. Marijuana: Being legalized in several states.
5. Euthanasia and Infanticide: Being legalized under camouflage names.
6. Pornography: Rampant, graphic, just a "click away" on hand-held devices.
7. Homosexuality, lesbian and transgender lifestyles: Promoted even by our president along with gay marriage and homosexual ordinations.
8. Movies and music: Standards almost nonexistent with graphic nudity, profanity and blasphemy commonplace.
9. Out-of-wedlock births: 1st time in U.S history – more than 50%.
10. Sexually transmitted diseases: Over 110 million in our population infected.
11. Economic insanity: $18 trillion national debt; millions unemployed deriving benefits; $60 billion in annual Medicare fraud and waste.
12. Illegal immigration: Over 11 million and politicians pushing open borders and amnesty.
13. Political leaders: Corruption, incompetence and deception at all levels.
14. Radical Islam and terrorism: Exploding in regions of the world with an increasingly vulnerable America dismantling militarily and docile politicians calling it a "peaceful religion."
15. Should we add illiteracy... crime... catastrophic fatherlessness... human trafficking... adultery... profane comedians...an ignorant and low information populace? How about the ongoing erosion of our religious freedoms and secularism taking over society? And last but not least, how about a Laodicean, apostate church compromising and lacking the courage to address the defining issues of our day with clarity and conviction while defining success in terms of happy sermons, attendance, offerings, number of staff, programs and square footage?
Do we see the "handwriting on the wall" that we are at an unprecedented tipping point? Are we aware that America is rapidly spiraling into a lawless culture similar to Germany of a generation ago? My wife and her parents are German and they will tell you an educated and civilized nation moved from democracy to dictatorship and then demise in less than six years! A once-thriving nation can have its heritage and faith so decimated that history records it as a tragic collapse. Our Only Hope for Turnaround is a Heaven-sent Awakening That May Require A Calamity to Jumpstart As long as things continue to run somewhat smoothly on the surface, we have an amazing ability to cope and carry-on, all the while making flimsy excuses for compromise and a comfortable "Christianity."
• "I don't like what's happening in America on so many issues, but it's not really affecting me or my family."
• "I prefer they not schedule soccer games on Sunday morning but I guess we can live with it. As a family we try to make it to church at least twice a month unless we need to catch up on our rest."
• "I wish our pastor would address these critical issues but his role model is Joel Osteen so he avoids controversy."
• "I grew up with Sunday school, Sunday evening and Wednesday evening services but times have changed and I guess we can get by with a brief Sunday service."
• "Our worship leader is gay, I think, and the primary singer is living with her boyfriend but it's probably best not to stir up problems."
• "I wish our church gave out voter guides so we knew where candidates stand but since we're in a building program, leadership said they don't want to jeopardize fundraising."
"Our pastors tell us they don't put out any lawn signs for candidates or speak about anything political because of separation of church and state." "We got the evite for the citywide gathering to pray for transformation in our city but it's the same night of Dancing With the Stars finale and we just can't miss it."
"I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So because you are lukewarm – neither hot nor cold – I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked" (Rev. 3:15-17).
8 Potential Disasters to Awaken Us?
Will it take another stock market crash, severe financial recession or, God forbid, global economic collapse to get our attention?
Might it take a series of beheadings and coordinated Islamic terrorist attacks in malls and cities by ISIS supporters slipping through unprotected borders to wake us up?
Would a massive power outage shutting down computers and canceling NFL games nationwide strike fear into the hearts of citizens and sober us to the urgency of the hour?
How about an airborne Ebola virus outbreak and the "pestilences and diseases" (Matt. 24:7) Jesus predicted at the end of the age? Maybe a mass migration of infected Central Americans streaming through our porous Southern border?
Perhaps the beginning of war in the Middle East as Jerusalem is surrounded by enemies (Luke 21:20) and Iran launches the "bomb" on Israel causing catastrophic disruption in the Straits of Hormuz (where 20% of the total world's gas supply passes)? Recall the long gas lines of 1973?
Friends and family "handed over to be persecuted and put to death...hated by all nations because of Me" (Matt. 24:9)? Imagine us saying what a Chinese pastor, Huang Yizi, said this week upon being arrested in a government crackdown: "I am grateful to God for the opportunity to go to jail."
Perhaps the very real, dreaded, catastrophic EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) attack causing unimaginable devastation by paralyzing America as all power lines burn out and all goes dark instantly? USA Today stated: "Cities darken, food spoils and homes fall silent. Civilization collapses." Cause: One terrorist A-bomb or a severe solar storm.
Massive earthquake(s) as Jesus foretold (Matt. 24:7). Scientist Dr. Lucy Jones issued a dire warning on Oct. 15 to the L.A. City Council of the effects: "Infrastructure crippled; power grid and communications knocked out; water supply disrupted; 1,800 fatalities, 53,000 injured and ½ the buildings unusable." [Note: This is not the inevitable "Big One" set for San Francisco.]
Awakening From Spiritual Coma
After the disaster of 9/11, people flocked to church buildings, prayer meetings mushroomed and streets were lined with marquees calling for God's blessing on America. We got our wake up call and people were motivated to seek the living God as atheists and the ACLU were silenced. Unfortunately, we hit the snooze button and fell back asleep. African pastors gathering in D.C. stated it this way just a week ago: "America is in a spiritual coma!" Providentially, the same week over 100 churches gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in our Nation's Capital to cry out to God for one thing - spiritual awakening in the United States of America. In the time of Esther, things looked bleak and God's people were very discouraged at the prospect of a national disaster. But through prayer, fasting, seeking God and Spirit-led action, God intervened to save the day. "Who knows if you've come into the Kingdom for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:14) was spoken over one believer. As the clock is ticking, can you hear God issuing you and me the same challenge?

Why Islam Lops Off Heads, Christianity Doesn’t, and Trump Is Right
Posted on 23rd March 2016 by Stucky in Economy Christianity, Islam, Reformation, Trump
Horrific, is it not? But, it shouldn’t be surprising. Not when one considers the statistical fact that since September 11, 2001, followers of the Religion of Peace have committed more than 27,000 deadly terrorist attacks in the name of Islam. Neither is it surprising that Danish linguist Tina Magaard, after leading a team of researchers who for three years studied the texts of the holy books of the world’s ten biggest religions and interviewed 45,000 subjects concluded that; —- “The texts of Islam are clearly distinct from the other religions texts as they, to a higher degree, call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths. There are also direct incitements to terror. … Moreover, in the Qur’an there are hundreds of invitations to fight against people of other faiths.” No, to those of us who have eyes and ears and the intellect to cast aside the pure “Islam is peace” bovine-excrement thrown in our faces by the Tolerance&Inclusion panoply of liars, none of this is a surprise. What may be a surprise, especially to those who haven’t completely read the Old Testament, is that the Bible is every bit as violent as the Koran. There are thirty six (36!!) different offenses in the Bible which qualify for capital punishment. Here are a few of them; — cursing parents, working on the Sabbath, premarital Sex (girls only), disobedience (boys only), worshipping any god but Yahweh, witches, loose daughters of clergy, girls who are raped within the city limits, blasphemers, anyone who proselytizes Yahweh worshipers to a different religion, men who lie with men, adulterers, men who lie with beasts (btw, the beast is also put to death … so think about that before you decide to boink your toy Poodle). (References: Leviticus 20:9 — Exodus 31:15 — Deuteronomy 22:20 — Deuteronomy 21:18 — Deuteronomy 17:2-5 — Exodus 22: 18 — Leviticus 21:9 — Deuteronomy 22:23-25 — Leviticus 24:16 — Deuteronomy 12:6 — Leviticus 20:13 — Leviticus 20: 10-12 — Leviticus 20:15)
It’s in the Bible. God’s word! These are commandments, NOT suggestions. So, in the last two thousand years how many children who have cursed their parents has Christianity put to death? I believe the correct answer is …. zero. In America, Christianity has killed people for only one of the above offenses; about 20 people were executed for witchcraft in Salem, MA., and that was about 325 years ago. The most logical question to ask is, “Why aren’t Christians faithfully obeying God’s commandments in the same manner and fervor as Muslims obey the Koran? Are we less faithful?” The answer to that can be found in The Reformation. THE CHRISTIAN REFORMATION My intent is not to turn this into a doctrinal essay so, I’ll keep this brief … a view from 50,000 feet. None of what follows is a criticism of Catholicism. Rather, it is an indictment of human nature when fallible and weak humans are given unlimited power.
In the 1,500 years prior to the Reformation there was but one church – the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). How, what, when, and where to worship and believe was determined entirely by a small group of elite leaders, culminating with the Pope. Popes eventually became as powerful, if not more powerful, than kings. Corruption became the norm. They lived in splendor, and the people in squalor. The Reormers believed the Church bastardized the essence of Christianity with questionable “doctrines” which more often than not were established merely to enrich the Church’s coffers. For example, the utterly evil practice of selling Indulgences — the world’s first “get out of jail free” card — to escape hell and go to heaven (if you could afford it). The RCC was able to hold on to such power to a large extent because of the doctrine of Apostolic Succession — the claim that the RCC has a unique authority over all other churches and denominations because the Popes can trace their lineage directly all the way back to the Apostle Peter. God no longer spoke directly to believer’s hearts. No! God now spoke directly and only to The Pope. Humanity, which once was the direct object of God’s love has become nothing but a pawn to be used and abused as the elite saw fit. All dissent was silenced. The occasional foolish believer who dared speak out against these abuses would find himself tortured, killed, or excommunicated (a fate which in that era was often worse than death). And then one day, along came Martin Luther – and he changed everything. Albeit, not without much violence and bloodshed — for those in power never ever give up their place in the universe without first inflicting even more pain and horror than ever before on the poor souls under their thumb. Reformation and suffering work in tandem. At the heart of the Reformation was the desire to answer four basic questions; —- 1) How is a person saved? —- 2) Where does religious authority lie? —- 3) What is the church? —- 4) What is the essence of Christian living? The answers to those questions — which changed everything by uprooting the monolithic power of the RCC — is summed up in the 5 “Sola” declarations; —-1) “Sola Scriptura” (Scripture Alone) —- Affirms that the Bible alone is the sole authority for all matters of faith and practice. —-2) “Sola Gratia” (Salvation by Grace Alone) —- Affirms that salvation from God’s wrath is by God’s grace alone. Grace is the sole efficient cause of salvation which raises us up from spiritual death to spiritual life. —-3) “Sola Fide” (Salvation by Faith Alone) —- Affirms justification is by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. Nothing man can do on his own will save him. —- 4) “Solus Christus” (In Christ Alone) —- Affirms that salvation is found in Christ alone. His sinless life and substitutionary atonement alone are sufficient for our reconciliation to God the Father. —- 5) “Soli Deo Gloria” (For the Glory of God Alone) —- Affirms that salvation is of God and has been accomplished by God for His glory alone. HOW THE REFORMATION SET US ALL FREE Ok, great! So, what does this all mean? I’ll tell you. Hold tight and read carefully for comprehension because this is extremely important. 1)— The Reformation laid down once and for all the right and obligation of the individual conscience, and the right to follow the dictates of that individual conscience. Do you grasp what this means? In one word ….. Liberty! We in the West talk a good talk about “liberty”, but too few realize and understand that they owe their liberty to this event. 2)— Individual conscience allowed believers to reconsider how the Word of God was received, and its effectual operation in their lives. For the first time in hundreds of centuries people of faith could read for themselves how God chose to reveal himself in the written Word which, according to 2 Timothy 3:16 is as follows; — “All Scripture is INSPIRED by God ..”. No longer did they have to believe that every single word of the Bible was dictated by God (as Islam believes about the Koran) which only an elite clergy could interpret. 3)— By understanding that Scripture was inspired, and not dictated, this allowed believers to “re-interpret” Bible verses and even entire passages without fear that they were altering God’s Word 4)— The ability to “re-interpret” Scripture without fear of being banned as a heretic led to an avalanche of scholarly work. New ideas, previously suppressed by the brute authority of the RCC, now flourished in vast abundance. Human brains, previously dormant for 1,500 years, were once again put to use. (See “Special Note” below.) 5)— One of the very most important of these (many) new ideas was that God works differently in different eras. God is not like a rigid stone but, rather, has a heart of flesh. So, while the death penalty for many sins may have been sufficient and necessary at one time during the Age of Law, that same death penalty was totally unnecessary in the Age of Grace. THAT, dear friends, is why Christians no longer kill adulterers. And, as you will soon see, the lack of all of the above is why Islam still does. [Special Note: Modern Science as a discipline is a fruit of the Reformation. Science could not have developed to the same degree amongst those who worship Allah, because of Islam’s fatalism. Science did not flourish to its potential under Hinduism or Buddhism because of their belief that the world is an illusion. Humanists believe that life is irrational and illogical, and by rejecting absolutes, humanists reject the very foundation of science. If there are no absolutes in nature, then results in experimentation can only be relative. If everything is relative, then engineering, and all other branches of science, becomes difficult, if not impossible. Science needs a proper philosophical base for investigating the universe and only Christianity provided that base because a Creator established laws for people and laws for the natural world. This created world would then be expected to have design, order and purpose … which science now could study unhindered by philosophical roadblocks. Francis Bacon, the father of the scientific method put it this way; — “There are two books laid before us to study to prevent us falling into error; first, the volume of the Scriptures which reveal the will of God; then the volume of the Creatures, which express His power.”] THE ISLAMIC REFORMATION Just kidding. There hasn’t been an Islamic Reformation. The religion is interpreted and practiced in the same anachronistic manner today as it was back in 610AD. And, by all indications, there won’t be any reformation in the foreseeable future. THE REASONS FOR THE EXTREME DIFFICULTY IN REFORMING ISLAM Islam Basics: Islam comes primarily in two flavors; Sunni (about 80%) and Shia (about 15%). Sufiism and a handful of other mostly obscure denominations make up the remainder. The major division between Shia and Sunni concerns the death of Muhammad, and the question of who was to take over the leadership of Islam. Sunnis believe Mohammed wanted the new leader to be whomever was capable of the job. Shias wanted to keep it in the family, so upon Mohammed’s death leadership passed directly to his cousin/son-in-law. Over this triviality both groups have been killing each other ever since. Shias also have a little bit of “Catholic fever” going on. They believe their spiritual leaders (Imams) are sinless by nature, and that their authority is infallible because it comes directly from God. Imams are often venerated as saints and Muslims perform pilgrimages to their tombs and shrines in the hopes of divine intercession. The only other contentious religious difference between Shiite and Sunni Muslims concerns the Mahdi, which is Arabic for “guided one“. Both groups perceive the Mahdi as the sole ruler of the Islamic community. But while the Sunnis hold that the Mahdi has not yet been born and anticipate his arrival, the Shiites believe that the Mahdi was born in 869 A.D. and will return to Earth under Allah’s orders. Sunni and Shia agree with each other in all other major tenets of Islamic faith, such as the Six Elements of Belief and the Five Pillars. There have probably been less than twenty Islamic scholars in the past hundred years attempting a serious discussion on reforming, at a minimum, at least certain aspects of Islam. Several were put to death, and not one came even close to reforming mainstream Islam (Sunni and Shia). One modern day entry calling or an overhaul of Islam is Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali born Muslim, an ex-Dutch politician, and a critic of Islam in its current form. In her book “Heretic” she proposes five tenets of the faith that must be “reformed or discarded”, which we will now examine. 1)- Realize that Mohammed was not infallible One should stop being an “apologist” for The Prophet, and examine his entire life, evaluate his actions at face value, and then use common sense to determine his infallibility. For example; he created a great many widows and orphans, sold many into slavery, the extremely young and pretty girls became his “wives” (wink, wink), he once had a woman killed as she slept in her bed surrounded by her six children because she disagreed with him, he contradicted himself – often in the same chapter (sura) such as when he said “whoever killed a human being…shall be regarded as having killed all mankind,” yet, that was followed immediately by the notice that all those who oppose him “shall be slain or crucified”. You see, the question of infallibility is really a quite simple one. A preponderance of evidence is not necessary to disprove infallibility. Infallibility is shattered at the first occurrence of a wrong-doing, a mistake, or an error. For a more complete list of Mohammed’s fallible actions as found directly in the Koran please see this article “32 Sins of Mohammed”. According to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, one potential solution is to recognize the two distinct periods of Mohammed’s life; Mecca and Medina. Mohammed spent twelve peaceful years in Mecca in an attempt to persuade his fellow Meccans that he was the messenger of God. That message was wholeheartedly rejected. So, Muhammad migrated with his followers to Medina … where he began to use more forceful militaristic means of persuasion; raiding, looting, assassination, and warfare. Ali recommends that Muslims retain the more spiritual, religious form of Islam that developed in Mecca, and reject the supremacist and intolerant form that developed in Medina. However, problem arise immediately because Muslims minimize the peaceful years. Mohammed received his first revelation in Mecca in 610AD. But, that is not when the Muslim calendar begins. Rather it begins in 622AD, when he migrated to Medina and commenced his warrior career. What is clear here is that while still in its infancy Islam came to a fork in the road, and they chose the road named Violence. Overall, this much needed reform is a very tough sell, likely impossible. The astute reader will quickly understand that to reform Islam by repudiating Muhammad is likely no different than reforming Christianity by repudiating Christ. So, immediately we find ourselves on the horns of a dilemma. For Islam to change it must come to grips about their beloved Prophet … but, in doing so, Islam falls. The impossibility of reform should be rather clear just from this one issue so, maybe I should just end this section right here and now. 2)- Acknowledge that the Koran “was shaped by human hands” and not dictated verbatim by Allah Islam is bound by the extreme rigidity of the doctrine of “tanzīl” – which states that the Koran was dictated verbatim by Allah. Man’s role in Koranic revelation is one hundred percent passive. It’s like this; God spoke, write it down, now shut up! How, then, is reform possible, when it means arguing with God? This is unlike Christianity which states that “all Scripture is inspired by God” …. NOT dictated verbatim. In other words, a human being receives the Word – via a dream, vision, angelic appearance, hearing God’s voice, God occasionally manifesting Himself in human form, via the Holy Spirit, and many other ways — and only then does that person write about it. It is exactly this active human involvement in revelation —— again, completely absent in Islam — which allows for God-inspired revelation to be debated and interpreted in a multitude of ways. This principle is what allowed Jesus to make of mockery of the Pharisee’s belief system. You might recall than on one particular Sabbath Jesus’ disciples picked some grains while walking through a grain field. Aghast at this turn of events the Pharisees, hoping in vain to trap Jesus, asked him, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?” Jesus answered brilliantly, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” The Law results in slavery, while Jesus sets us free. Such interpretation is absolutely impossible under Islam. Rather it is the other way around; man is a slave of Allah and, therefore, a slave to the rigid text of the Koran. A “modernist” Muslim — limited mostly to Arab intelligentsia in the academic world– will attempt to soften the harshness found in the Koran. Muhammad’s command to “kill the infidels” is rendered as “kill them insofar as they attack you”. The command to “beat your wife” is rendered as “beat her on her buttocks with a feather”. The modernist wants to enter the 21st century while at the same time his religion tells him that a woman is worth half a man in inheritance, or as a witness in court. What does a modernist do when the Koran states in multiple places to cut off the hand of a person who steals? Will he stick to his “modernism” and try to be more progressive? Or, will he revert to believing the literalness of the Koran? When presented with that choice, it’s always the latter because, in reality, he has no choice … not if he wants to maintain his Muslim-ness. The modernist is akin to the little Dutch Boy trying to avert disaster by vainly sticking his fingers in the dike. You see this often in countries such as Egypt, which on a social level, has generally abrogated the Islamic law of apostasy. However, when the powers are confronted with an actual case of conversion from Islam to a religion other than Islam, then the full fury of Islamic zeal boils up in their blood, and they begin to demand that the apostate be killed. They can’t stand the idea of somebody choosing something else over Islam. Why? Because Allah willed it …. by specifically dictating in the Koran to literally murder apostates. How in this world does one reform such a religion?
3)- Emphasize the rewards of this life, as opposed to the rewards in the afterlife Let’s keep this one simple. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex. More sex. Sex. Day and night. Sex. Night and Day. Sex. Sex. Sex. For all eternity. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex. 72 wide-eyed maidens of Paradise. Bang, bang, bang that booty … and don’t worry about getting bored or tired because the Koran says “her attraction never lags nor his arousal ever wanes.” For an erection lasting more than 1,000 years please call 1-800-Softdik. Sex. Sex. Sex. A Muslim theologian named al Ghazali (died 1111 AD) even wrote – “Each time we sleep with a houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one will marry seventy houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas”. WooHoo!! Eternal erections! Perpetual virgins! (Now, THAT’S a neat trick! “Step right in ladies to Allah’s Perpetual Hymen Repair Shop. No fuss. No muss. No charge. Make sure you ask about our Anal Lubrication Service.”). Tasty vaginas!! What’s not to like! Sign me up!! See what’s going on here? Life here on earth becomes utterly meaningless when the next life promises an eternal fuck-fest. Then again, can a Muslim man – or any man — give up their dreams of a Heavenly Harem of Hotties? Here’s what happens when you live in the “here and now” as opposed to the “bye and bye”. ———- The Jews rarely speak of the afterlife. The world’s total Jewish population in 2015 does not exceed 15 million people — or, 0.2% of the world’s population. Yet, 194 Jews have been awarded the Nobel Prize … accounting for 22% of all individual recipients worldwide between 1901 and 2015. ———- Muslims are consumed with the next life. There were 1.7 billion Muslims in the world …. or, 23% of the global population. In the 21st century just twelve (12 !!) Nobel Prize winners have been Muslims. And seven of those twelve were the ridiculous Peace Prize. Moral: you’ll never make this world a better place if all you think about is pussy in the next. Until Muslim men give up this idea of an eternal futuristic Sexual Fantasy Camp, don’t expect a reformation in the here and now. 4)- Reject all elements of Sharia law which are “violent, intolerant, or anachronistic.” The Islamic Law, shari’ah, is not some add-on to the faith (such as, for example, ‘speaking in tongues’ is to some Christians), something that would be nice-to-have but no big deal if not. No! Sharia Law is part and parcel of Islam, a non-negotiable fundamental, because it is based on the authoritative text of the Quran and confirmed by the Traditions of Mohammad. There. Is. No. Choice. Islam is much more than just another religion. Mohammad’s military tactics in Medina finally culminated in victory for Allah, Mecca was conquered, and then the people of Arabia had no choice but to “submit” to Mohammad, the conqueror of Mecca. The Koran intended that Islam from its inception be both an ideology and a political way of life, and by way of force whenever necessary. You people who have no problem with opening America’s borders and accepting Muslims en masse better hope they don’t become powerful enough to enact the poll tax. Once again, a Muslim is obligated to obey the plain text of the Koran which unequivocally states — “An infidel who has to pay his poll-tax, jizya, should be treated by the tax collector with disdain; the collector remaining seated and the infidel standing before him, the head bent and the body bowed. The infidel should personally place the money in the balance, while the collector holds him by the beard and strikes him on both cheeks.” But, perhaps you don’t care because you don’t have a beard. OK, so you don’t have a beard. What will you do about your Christianity, or if not a Christian, then your Christian heritage? (The Koran makes no distinction between the two. You are an infidel, regardless.) Do you have the foolish hope that maybe somehow Islam will reinterpret the following command to mean something kinder and gentler? — “Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends. … Garments of fire have been prepared for the unbelievers. Scalding water shall be poured upon their heads, melting their skins and that which is in their bellies. They shall be lashed with rods of iron.” Of course, right about now, someone is getting ready to respond to my “Islamophobia” by citing some Koranic verse that says something nice about unbelievers …. verses which constitute at best only 3% of the verses in the Koran Meditate on the following. How can a God who made all people ever allow a human being to violate the dignity of another human created in His name?? The Christian God actively seeks man, has made everything for man, and for man’s sake He takes the initiative of love. Man reciprocates that love and realizes that his true Paradise is to make God the goal of his life. The Biblical God calls man “his friend”. The Dignity of Man is an unknown concept to Islam. To Allah, man is but an annoyance, to be subjugated, ruled over, humiliated, and beaten down whenever necessary. Christianity advocates freedom of man …. Islam, man’s slavery. One brings the message of liberation, the other, of submission. How does one reform such a religion? 5)- Reject political Jihad It makes sense to judge a man by his whole life, rather than by just a segment of it. That being said, we all do put more weight on the latter portion of that life. The young Saul ruthlessly persecuted and killed Christians. Augustine, by his own admission, was a most zealous sinner as a young man. What we do is forgive a saint’s earlier sins if he makes up for them later in life. Saul (who became Paul), Augustine, and countless other Christian saints were profoundly and dramatically changed for the better after their conversions. Mohammed completely reverses the order. Even before his first revelation there is no evidence that Mohammed was a sinner who found God and decided to repent and change his ways. It seems he was a model citizen, a trustworthy merchant, a man faithful to one wife. As mentioned previously, his stay in Medina was relatively peaceful – perhaps because his followers never numbered more than one hundred. Then came Mecca. After twelve years, perhaps his revelations in Medina grew in scope and importance (in his head) as he developed an increased sense of his own importance. As he gathered many more followers, Mecca enabled him to go on the offensive; moral rules were more easily compromised, he acquired concubines and wives, reneged on his promises, engaged in slave trading, massacred defenseless civilians, and sinned more boldly and openly. Suppose that six months before his crucifixion, Jesus Christ decided to order assassinations, sanctioned rape … and even committed rape, and engaged in other immoral and violent acts. Wouldn’t that cast doubt on his entire previous ministry?? Wouldn’t it cast doubt on the entirety of Christian revelation? Of course, it would! Would you follow this man? Imitate him, as called for in the Bible? Yet, all Muslims consider Mohammed the model to imitate in every detail. If you believe nothing else written so far, then I beg you to at least believe this; — there are many verses in the Koran about jihad, and all jihad rests on two massive pillars; War and Deception. Our Western “leaders” – and their many sheep-like followers — are incapable of realizing that this deception and violence practiced by Islam’s prophet can only lead to deception and violence performed by its followers … no matter where they live. Logically, how can it be any different?? Why, oh why, do we not understand that the imitation of Mohammed by Muslims and the imitation of Christ by Christians leads in entirely different directions? They are not like us. They won’t become like us just because they move here. All this being said, and forgetting even the first four suggested reforms, Islam could stop being the world’s pariah if they only adopted the principle of “No Jihad”. Learn the lesson we all learned in kindergarten; learn to play nice with others. Stop deceiving, hating and killing other people simply because they disagree with you. Sadly, they just can’t do even that. They must follow Mohammed’s example … to the tee. How does one reform a religion like that?
WHAT IS ISLAM”S RESPONSE TO THESE SUGGESTIONS? The Muslim world, and unsurprisingly even the Western press, have reacted in typical fashion – heaping scorn upon scorn upon Ms. Ali, calling her a lesbian, deranged, evil, hateful, an atheist whore, and dangerous. It’s just the typical nonsensical ad hominem attacks when truth can’t be answered any other way. Here is a typical article. Her efforts at reforming Islam have resulted in a fatwa calling for her death. Ms. Ali collaborated with Theo van Gogh on a film about Muslim woman. Of course, van Gogh was murdered in 2004, and a message was left stuck into his chest with a knife saying that she was next. Freedom of thought, such as the freedom to explore alternative ways to live their Holy Scriptures, is virtually non-existent in the world of Islam. Muslims, especially those in the Arab world, are designed to either cow or be cowed, to be the oppressive dictator, or be the oppressed. In other words, perhaps this is the greatest reason why Islamic reform is impossible ….. they don’t want it. Such people will never know freedom. Nay, they can never even comprehend it. Baha’u’llah —- THE HOPE OF ISLAM? What is the point of reforming a religion founded by a man, possibly mentally deranged, who committed so much evil on this earth? A man who; lied, deceived, raped, tortured, raided, looted, massacred and subjected billions of people over the last 1,700 years to live in a constant state of fear and slavery? Why should his memory be honored? Thousands of religions have been discarded in the trash heap of human history. Why not this one? It is time. “Well, that was harsh you Islamophobe piece of crap!”, you might say. Well, Baha’u’llah gave serious consideration on reforming Islam. He came to the same conclusion; Islam simply cannot be reformed. So, he started a new religion, Bahai. It has similarities to Islam, taking only the good, and for more information on that — (I’m not a Bahai expert, and don’t have the time or energy to become one.) – then go here. Or, go directly to the Bahai Web Site, here. Baha’u’llah sad he received a new revelation from the same God who revealed himself to Mohammed, and he told the Muslims; —- beforetime Allah told you to slay unbelievers …. now He wants you to love all the people irrespective of their faiths — beforetime Allah told you women are deficient in intelligence and to beat them if they disobey ….. now He says men and women are equal and to educate your daughters for they will give birth to future generations — beforetime Allah told you all non-believers will go to hell …. now He says it’s your deeds that matter and your faith without good deeds is worthless and that He is not going to discriminate against anyone because of his belief. It’s the purity of heart that matters not what you profess with your tongues. — beforetime Allah told you “fighting is good for you,” …. now He is tired of all the fighting and says fighting should be left to ferocious beasts — beforetime Allah promised you virgins ….. now he says there are no virgins, and the rewards are all spiritual in nature, like joy and love. — beforetime Allah spoke of hellfire …. now He says there is no punishment, except the regret that you’d feel for losing the chance to develop spiritual limbs in this world. — beforetime Allah built a huge rotisserie to burn humans for disbelief ….. now He has shut it down, and He wants you to obey him for the love of Him alone and not because you fear him. From the bowels of Islam is birthed a beautiful religion of peace and love. Comparing the two religions, why, oh why, in the world would anyone choose Islam? Naturally, Baha’u’llah was put in a dungeon and spent the rest of his life in exile, and the people of Bahai faith have been heavily persecuted throughout history. Evil always desires to kill love. Nevertheless, Christianity was heavily persecuted in its infancy also, and look where we are now. Maybe the seed of Bahai will take a while longer to germinate in the hearts of Muslims and “reform” them for the betterment of all mankind. I know that sounds Pollyanish. But, what do we have besides hope? ISLAMIC REFORMATION AS AN ILLUSION The word “reform” is derived from the Latin “refōrmāre”, meaning; to redeem, to reclaim, to renew. In other words it is restoring something to its original form. The Christian Reformation began as an attempt to reform, not the religion, but the Catholic Church. We already mentioned the practice of selling indulgences. There was also simony — the buying and selling church positions. There were also several Catholic doctrinal issues; devotion to and the Supremacy of Mary, the intercession of and devotion to the saints, mandatory celibacy for the clergy, Purgatory, to name just a few. However, these were practices of the Catholic Church. The Reformers did not believe these practices reflected true Christianity. They only rebelled against the Church. They did not question the authority of the Bible. They did not reject the Deity of Jesus. Their intent was merely to reject anything not contained explicitly in the scriptures, and to follow unwaveringly all things explicitly contained in Scripture. That is the essence of the Reformation. At last, this brings us to The Burning Question; “What is there to reform in Islam?” Behold the answer: “NOTHING!”. As just stated, reform means to restore something to its original form. But, TODAY’S Islam IS in its original form! In theology, in belief, and in practice the religion in 2016 mirrors the religion of 622AD. Nothing. Has. Changed. So, what is there to reform? That’s why there’s no such thing as an “extremist radical” Muslim, or even a “moderate” Muslim. Someone said a radicalized Muslim will blow you up, while a moderate Muslim will be happy about it. Look … a Muslim is a Muslim is a Muslim. Qualifiers are irrelevant, and not required — other than a tool used by politicians and media whores to obfuscate, complicate, conceal, perplex, darken, confound, baffle and generally just bullshitting about the religion o peace to the Perpetually Gullible Sheep. Islam simply is. “Oh, they’ll be nice people when they come to America!”, they say. If or when you hear that, just remember this; that’s the biggest lie you will hear in your life. (Other than, “the check is in the mail”, and that other thing.) The problem with Islam is that it has rotted from the inside. When the core is rotten, the whole apple needs to be discarded … not cut up in an attempt to make it “better”. Every Muslim alive knows exactly the meaning of “reforming Islam”; it means taking the entirety of his religion apart, piece by piece, discarding, replacing, and adding, and then handing it back to him saying, “Here ya go! Your religion needed some fixing .. well, a major overhaul actually … and we repaired it and made it so much better just for you!” How many Muslims do you think there are in the world who would accept that? One percent? Two percent, on a good day? And now you know why there cannot be a Muslim Reformation. Bonus Section #1: AMERICA’S CULTURE vs. SHARIA It bears repeating (so sorry) that Sharia Law is not something practiced by fringe extremist elements who have supposedly “hijacked” the religion. No! It is a fundamental tenet of the faith held by all mainstream Islamic authorities to be the perfect expression of divine will and justice. It is a “complete way of life” that mandates social, cultural, military, religious and political norms. In other words, Shariah is a totalitarian ideology that controls all aspects of life I admit that not all nations with a predominant Muslim population practice Sharia. Turkey, for example, has a “secular” government. Well, I don’t care! Can you guarantee that Sharia will never take hold in Turkey? No, you cannot! All it means is that in Turkey (or any other Muslim dominated country) the necessary ingredients to implementing Sharia have not occurred …. YET. But, the danger is always there. And, you’re a damned fool if you believe America can escape this horrible fate, again, if the right mix of ingredients presents itself. In fact, in some ways, we are already under Sharia. When we are forced to censor ourselves to avoid “offending” Islam or Muslims, then we have just become dhimmis. We become dhimmis when we change our customs, rules and laws to conform to demands of Muslims, or when a Muslim cleric insists on offending the vast majority of Americans by building a mosque next to Ground Zero. We let these interlopers eat away at our own national ideals, our own personal dignity, our culture, and our way of life while at the same time we apologize for being Americans! The possibility that Sharia can eventually come to America – no matter how small the probability – is enough reason to deny Muslims entrance to this country. You might protest, — “Well, you’re just wrong. Stop exaggerating! That just can never happen in America!”. Sure. The Europeans thought the same thing. Shariah unequivocally beyond all doubt rejects the fundamental premises of American society and values: a democratic republic governed by a Constitution written by man freedom of expression (such as being allowed to reject Shariah) that the governed have a right to make law for themselves economic liberty, such as ownership of private property freedom from cruel and unusual punishments equal treatment under the law the pursuit of happiness freedom of conscience individual liberty a FREE people! Even our Founding Fathers understood the dangers of Islam. John Quincy Adams wrote a 136-page series of essays on Islam addressing the threat facing America via jihad and dhimmitude. —- “The precept of the koran is, perpetual war against all who deny, that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet, may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force.” My goodness! That could have been written in 2016! Nothing has changed (except for the worse). If Adams understood the dangers posed by the Mahomet, why can’t we? For more information check out this article titled “Were the Founding Fathers “Tolerant” of Islam?” here. Lastly, and briefly, can we smarter Americans please put to rest the notion that jihad is only a “personal struggle” of sacrifice towards God to be the best possible Muslim? Yes, it is that. But, it is much more than just that. Why is it that Muslim apologists always pick-and-choose verses which paint their religion in the best possible light? Why do they purposely withhold from us the other half … for example, the 164 verses that specifically refer to jihad against non-Muslims in terms that include military expeditions, fighting enemies, slaughter, servitude, and distributing the spoils of war? Let’s fully appreciate, and believe, what a prominent 14th century Muslim theologian had to say about Jihad; —- “Jihad means to wage war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion.” Ya got that? Can it be stated any simpler? To a Muslim an unrepentant America will always and forever be the target of jihad until the end of time or, or until we submit, whichever comes first. Yet, a huge portion of Americans continue to live in a state of ignorance and/or denial. Believing that America can continue to allow an unfettered and un-vetted horde of Mahometans to invade our country, and that it will all work out. We are all from somewhere else, they say, a Melting Pot of pure success; Irish and German and Polish and Spanish and Scandinavian and African and from all corners of the globe. See? Ain’t it grand??!! Yet, watch these pie-in-the-sky fools run for the hills as you slay their fantasies with five simple words – “Yea, but they assimilated.” Watch this video. Then answer me this; “Are these people like previous immigrants?” A very recent poll revealed that a stunning 51% of American Muslims prefer Sharia Law to the Constitution. Be careful America, coming soon to your neighborhood. Oh, wait … it’s already happening. Bonus Section #2: THE CLINT EASTWOOD CLASSIFICATION OF MUSLIMS I’ve already proven that there is no such thing as a “moderate” or “extremist” Muslim. They are all one and the same. Nevertheless, people just love and need a system of classification so, let’s go with the title from a 1966 spaghetti western. Good Muslims follow the Koran and the example set forth by Mohammed. Good Muslims are the most likely to become terrorists. For example, political and media whores will shout from the rooftops “The 19 hijackers who wreaked havoc on Sept. 11th were not TRUE Muslims! They were radical extremists!” Are you kidding me? Au contraire! Those people actually practiced perfect faith. They followed the Koran’s call to jihad with perfection, 100% certain that they were doing God’s Will, Allah Snackbar. It is perfect faith which allows a man to kill his own mother because of “apostasy” (Picture above, story here). Be very afraid of the Muslim who strives to follow Islam with his whole heart, soul, and mind. The BAD Muslim The bad Muslim shares similar qualities to a bad Christian. They don’t read the Koran regularly, or at all. They rarely go to mosque. Their knowledge of Islam is quite weak. Because they don’t know what’s in the Koran, they usually don’t have ill feelings towards non-Muslims. Like most of us, they just want to be left alone to live their lives as they see fit unencumbered by religious gobbledygook. If a Muslim moves in next door, you really want them to be bad Muslim. When people say that they personally know 2.3 Muslims and that they are “just like me!”, they most likely are talking about a bad Muslim. When people with Muslim friends or acquaintances regale you with touching anecdotal evidences; that his friend doesn’t support jihad, or terrorism, or Sharia, or the burqa, or beating his wife softly with a feather, or whatever … then that can only mean one of two things. — First, they could be bad Muslims. This is good. — Secondly, they are a good Muslim, but they are culturally American – meaning, that on the surface they have adopted our beliefs about how an individual should interact with society. This is bad. Most Muslims are smart enough to outwardly adopt their host country’s values as long as the Muslim population is a small minority. Playing nice when you are a minority is the smart and prudent thing to do. However, it is pure foolishness to think that just because they adopt American values, that they are no threat to America. Short-term thinking is Fool’s Gold. The adoption of American values is temporary and strategic. All bets are off once the host country’s Muslim population reaches a tipping point — anywhere from 10% to 20% — and Sweden-ization takes root. Screw you and your Western values! (See below; four stages of Islam Conquest.) There’s one caveat to be aware of when it comes to bad Muslims. Some bad Muslims – just like a bad Christian — will admit that they are not good Muslims and hope that eventually (after they are done sinning and living it up) they will summon enough faith to become good Muslims. Then you gotta sell your house. The UGLY Muslim The ugly Muslim knows the truth about Islam … but lies about it. This is the worst Muslim of all. These people will always portray Islam in the best possible way. They will twist all the heinous verses in the Koran and make them sound reasonable or, they’ll just ignore them, pretending they don’t even exist. They are the ones who make the loudest claims about Islam being “hijacked”, even though know it’s not true. They’ll even agree with you that the good Muslims are bad. They will say that Sharia is a terrible idea. How can this be? How can one say they are a follower of Islam while at the same time not follow Mohammed’s explicitly clear commands? This is fishy, blatantly dishonest and hypocritical. You can’t trust these people. They can try to sugarcoat Islam all they want but, what they can never do is change its nature. CONCLUSION There are four stages of Islam Conquest according to this website. STAGE 1: INFILTRATION —- Muslims begin moving to non-Muslim countries in increasing numbers and the beginning of cultural conflicts are visible, though often subtle. They are under 10% of the population. STAGE 2: CONSOLIDATION OF POWER — Muslim immigrants and host country converts continue demands for accommodation in employment, education, social services, financing and courts. They have reached 10% of the population. STAGE 3: OPEN WAR w/ LEADERSHIP & CULTURE — Open violence to impose Sharia law and associated cultural restrictions; rejection of host government, subjugation of other religions and customs. They are now 20% of the population. STAGE 4: Totalitarian ISLAMIC “THEOCRACY” — Islam becomes the only religious-political-judicial-cultural ideology. YOU are now a minority in your own country. Fortunately, much to the chagrin of followers of the faux religion of Tolerance and Inclusion, the United States is still in Stage 1. If Americans want to keep their freedoms and avoid becoming like Sweden, then the only solution is to demand that Muslims stay out of America. They cannot reform. They will not assimilate. To deny this is, quite frankly, to deny the reality of reams of both current and historical data – and all you politically-correct snowflakes offended by this truth ought to go to Ace Hardware and buy a crowbar and WD-40 Lube in order to remove your heads from your anal regions. Look, you are sorely mistaken if you think I hate Muslims. I even say a blessing for them from time to time. “May the good Lord mightily bless all Muslims …. and keep them far, far away, from me!”. That’s all I want. You stay there, I’ll stay here. That is not too much to ask! And, I feel that way because Muslims can NOT do what FDR said they must do; “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” Donald Trump, despite all his warts and failings, is the only presidential candidate who understands the danger of Islam. If you value freedom and security for yourself, your children and grandchildren, then consider giving him your vote … for he may be America’s last remaining hope.

Police Killings In Dallas Was Carried Out By Homegrown Terrorist Group Allied With Muslim Groups. Obama’s Race Baiting And Pro Muslim Gov Is Setting The Stage For Civil War In America
By Walid Shoebat on July 8, 2016 in Featured, General
A link to one of the last cached snapshots of its now removed Facebook page of the first group to take credit for the Dallas PD officer assassinations share common ideologies with other muslim terrorist groups. Black Power Political Organization – BPPO states its goals: “We Are A Powerful Political Group Of Patriotic, Pro Black, Pan African” “Black Power” are also part of Black Panthers (who are mostly moslem) and they promised that “More Will Be Assassinated In The Coming Days! Do You Like The Work Of Our Assassins? Get Your Own Sniper” Micah Johnson who is seen on video killing a cop joined Facebook groups that referenced the Black Panther Party, the LA Times reported, including one called the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, named after one of the Black Panthers’ founders. Johnson liked pages relating to Elijah Mohammed, the Nation of Islam’s deceased founder. This is a militant black Muslim group. Johnson also liked the Black Riders Liberation Party, which describes itself as a “new generation” of Black Panthers. This is the face of the future inbred terrorists in America. His young sister spoke out on Wednesday, before the ambush, claiming on social media that cops needed “to get a taste of the life we now fear.” “(I’m) tired of y’all tryin to be on these cops side making it okay based off irrelevant info when our own get killed over unjust s—,” Nicole Johnson said on Wednesday. And if the Palestinian excuse for killing Jews is “the occupation” these have the same principles “its the cops”. The Black Power Political Organization wants their rhetoric to be heard: The only true way us black people can liberate ourselves from white supremacy, and other race control! Is by using the same methods they use to control us, against them! That’s the same technique Zionist Jews use to liberate their people! By targeting the head, the people with the power and authority to make the changes we want! White Leaders and leaders of other race are the ones with the power and authority to make the changes us black people want! All it takes is to get influence and control over them like the Jews did. Then we will be able to force them to do what we want! All of that is easy to accomplish! You either use economic influence to control them. Or you use an independent assassin group to target these leaders and their families until they do what we want! Zionist Jews use both techniques! So don’t worry yourselves, a better tomorrow is coming for us black people. (From Black Power Political Organization – BPPO) There is little difference from ISIS. Our Mission Is To Free Africa And All Black Based Countries From Non Black Control! And Give Black People The Opportunity They Need To Develop Themselves And Reach Their Full Potential! Free Africa from What? Other African dictators? Have at it then and move to Africa. They say they want to rule Africa: We Are A Powerful Political Group Of Patriotic, Pro Black, Pan African Leaders! Who’s Job Is To Rule And Control Africa, And All Black Based Countries! So To Avoid Corruption, Bribery, Exploitation, Non Black Control And Every Form Of Ailments Preventing Black People And Africa From Reaching It’s Full Potential! And how will they accomplish this goal? To Accomplish Our Goal! We Will Be Working With (Black People Protection Agency AKA “BLACK KNIGHTS”)! A Powerful Group Of Well Trained Professional Sniper Assassins, With Tens Of Thousands Of Assassins Located All Over The World, In Every Country! Who’s Job Is To Hold Government Leaders And Other Powerful People All Over The World Responsible When They Fail To Give Black People Equal Rights And Justice In Their Countries. And they want to kill us by taxing us: Our Organization Will Be Finance Through Taxation And Other Means! (Like I always say! To free yourself from the white man. You will have to become like the white man. This is like saying that in order to defeat ISIS we must become ISIS and in order to defeat the Nazis we must becomes Nazis. If this is the case, these are the very opposite of what they claim to be. These give themselves special privileges which they do not allow others. What difference are they from the way they paint their enemies? And who allowed such groups to flourish? In fact such radical groups work within the U.S. government. Take lets say The Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), Taha Jaber al-Alwani, whom Hillary’s aid, Huma and her family, the Abedins, support and also harbor a similar ardent anti-Semitic views. Al-Alwani runs the United States Department of Defense program (out of all places) for training Muslim military chaplains in the U.S. military. We translated some of his quotes on the issue of The Muslim Minority Affairs: “… it [MMA] is a Jurisprudence for a group confned to its special circumstances which is allowed what others are not. In other words, these groups are entitled to certain privileges others should not have. These are groups bred to have a ‘superiority complex’. Alwani, a man commissioned by our government, even calls for a soon-to-be military conquest and provides an offcial fatwa in preparation for the use of force: “Commitment to the Quranic concept of Geography: The land belongs to Allah, his religion is Islam, and every country is already in the House of Islam—now in the present time—since they will be in the House of Islam by force in the near future. The whole of humanity is a Muslim Nation: it is either ‘the religion of the nation’ which has embraced this religion [Islam], or a ‘proselyte nation’ we are obliged to conquer.” (Alwani, The Jurisprudence of Muslim Minority Affairs. No. 7) Alwani speaks of a future, literal war from within. This is why we see people like Nidal Malik Hassan attacking military personnel. Such infiltration is on all levels, military and civil. In America, even the Director of the Islamic Center of Lubbock Texas Mohammed bin Mukhtar Shanqeeti agrees: “The Muslim Minority Jurisprudence is not a heresy or a novel, it’s an ancient doctrine flled with the provisions for Muslims living in Dar al-Kufr (House of the Heathen) or Dar Al-Harb (House of War).” Even the Abedins’ Journal for Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA ) confrms that their program stems from these same extremist sources: “The theory of the Jurisprudence of Muslim Minorities is most easily clarifed by shedding light on its founders” which the notes state are none other than Muslim Brotherhood “Yusuf al-Qaradawi” and “Taha Jabir al-Alwani”. No matter how one slices and dices these groups from Black Power Political Organization (BPPO), BlackPower, BlackKnights, Muslim Minority Affairs, Black Islam … these are all afilliates of Nation of Islam which is supported by muslim groups such as The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). The intent is to foment revolution in America. While CAIR is truly an external force, using African Americans has been the call of every Islamist since I remember how to speak. My father who taught Islamic studies since I was six years spoke of this tactic and that the blacks are enslaved by whites. President Obama is reviving an old mummy and Islam has manipulated backs from the dawn of time. SO WHAT CAUSED THE DALLAS MASSACRE? When officials and media say ‘white cops murdered innocent blacks’ you will eventually have ‘bad blacks murder innocent white cops’. Its inevitable. But besides Obama, democratic party nominee Hillary Clinton’s hatchet-woman Elizabeth Warren sent several tweets Thursday afternoon, including one that read: “We’ve seen the sickening videos of black Americans killed in traffic stops. Lives ended by those sworn to protect them.” For a while we have reported that Americans fear Muslim external forces like Al Qaeda, ISIS and the Taliban which they should. But for the last several years Americans are being taught to fear the cops instead. What we are facing here is the degrading of a society from the evils within. This is no longer an external problem. The leftist leaning U.S. government is allowing evil to fester and is doing nothing about it. The labels matter little since all of them share a common leftist ideology. And yes, Islam too, like Black Lives Matter is also leftist. These consider the United States imperialist oppressors that must be destroyed in order to give minorities “freedom.” There is no difference in the goals of Black Life Matters, Black Nights or the Muslim Minority Affairs, which Huma Abedin, Hillary’s aid share. These are all using their ‘minority status’ to create havoc within a society until they see it destroyed from within. From Hillary to Obama to the Department of Justice, they are not taking any action against the real hate-filled groups but instead, they are labeling anyone who hates evil as ‘haters’. This is why such groups have gone unchecked. Social media and government target what they label as ‘Islamophobes’ and ‘homophobes’ while targeting whites and police officers becomes legitimate and what is blamed in the end is the gun. Shoebat.com reported last night the organizer of the Dallas Black Lives Matter rally is a sodomite pro-Muslim agent by the name of Jeff Hood. In 2015, after American Christians protested an Islamic event in Dallas, this reprobate, Jeff Hood, said: “I think that Texas Muslims are the real Christians.” Disguising himself as a Baptist minister to cover his Islamic sentiments, in one statement Hood espouses the Muslim perspective about Jesus. In his website he posts a picture of Jesus dressed as a Muslim. Hood’s book “The Courage to be Queer,” he blasphemously wrote: “In fully living into the Queer within, Jesus became different and made all the difference.” He also stated: “Jesus was the most queer person on Earth.” Obama, like Hitler’s final days, insisted to keep the trains rolling with Jews to Auschwitz. Evil must go on, but it is on full throttle before the devil departs. Obama is now acting quick since the devil knows his time is short.

Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the
Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of
Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem.
The Lights are Going Out All Over Europe
Dear Friends, Thank you very much for inviting me. I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States is the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem. The Europe you know is changing. You have probably seen the landmarks. But in all of the cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration. All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It's the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead - with mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city. There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule. Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseilles and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammad is the most popular name among boys in many cities. In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims. Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear 'whore, whore'. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin. In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity. In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan. Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya, Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this: Stories about Islamization. A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhardt Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century. Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them respect. We have Muslim official state holidays. The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey. Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. I call the perpetrators settler's, because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers. Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries. Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored. The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Gandhi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammad himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad. Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is Sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies. Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam 'the most retrograde force in the world', and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz. Second because it is a democracy. And third because Israel is our first line of defense. This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam's territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War. The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming. Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, Godforbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel, they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islam as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat. Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America - as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem. Dear friends, Liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe, American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe's children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so. We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.

Canadian Imam says Islamic Law to be implemented when Muslims are majority
Posted by: Jonathan D. Halevi December 30, 2016
Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, is a Canadian Muslim scholar, who was born as a Christian in Jamaica in 1947 and grew up in Canada, where he accepted Islam in 1972. He completed a diploma in Arabic and a B.A. from the College of Islamic Disciplines (Usool ad-Deen) at the Islamic University of Madeenah in 1979. At the University of Riyadh, College of Education, he completed a M.A. in Islamic Theology in 1985, and in the department of Islamic Studies at the University of Wales, he completed a Ph.D. in Islamic Theology in 1994. Residing in Doha, Qatar, Bilal Philips is regularly invited to mosques in Canada and abroad to speak about the teachings of Islam. In a recent Friday sermon, Bilal Philips argued that Judaism and Christianity are a distortion of Islam, and that, Jesus, who was a Muslim, represents the link connecting the three religions. He accused a small group of Muslims of provoking Islamophobia because of their call to implement the Islamic Law (Sharia) in Europe where Muslims are a minority. When Muslims become the majority, explained Bilal Philips, they are obliged to implement the Islamic Law. The following are excerpts from Bilal Philip’s sermon (published on YouTube on August 21, 2016): “Prophet Jesus. Issa [Arabic name of Jesus], peace be upon him, represents the bond or the link between the three last versions of Islam. The third Islam being the true version. “Christianity [is] a distortion, and Judaism [is] a distortion, though in its roots Judaism was Islam as in the roots of Christianity, as Jesus taught it, it was Islam. Jesus represents the link between all three. “Twenty two states in the US out of their fifty two states, twenty two of them legally banned the Islamic Law (Sharia)…
“The Sharia is the law of God, the law of Allah which is good for all times, all people in all places. That is the reality. “Wherever Muslims are able to apply it, it is their duty to apply it, not to force it upon people as a minority in a country of non Muslims. “We have foolish Muslims, you know, calling for Sharia in the middle of Europe and creating the scare. “We can’t apply it unless we are the majority and the majority agree, then we can apply it, if the majority don’t agree even we’re all Muslims, but the majority don’t agree to apply Sharia to try, to apply it is to unleash bloodshed in the Muslim nation [Ummah], because Muslims will fight you. “They have to be educated. The Muslim nation [Ummah] has to come to that understanding that the way that we deserve to govern ourselves is in accordance with the Sharia [Islamic Law] and that’s what ‘there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him’ (لا إله إلا الله ومحمد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم) means. This is what it means.”

Islam vs Everyone
By Hal Lindsey
There are some basic things about Islam that everyone should know — including its view of human rights. Since Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution, the country has had two “Supreme Leaders.” The first was the notorious Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. He said, “What they [meaning Westerners] call human rights is nothing but a collection of corrupt rules worked out by Zionists to destroy all true religions.” If anything, Iran’s present “Supreme Leader,” the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, holds an even greater abhorrence of basic rights. He said, “For us the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is nothing but a collection of mumbo-jumbo by disciples of Satan.” He was referring to the United Nation’s “Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” written in 1948. The declaration is basic and straight forward. It is similar to the US Constitution’s Bill of Rights. It includes the right to “life, liberty and security of person.” It also includes freedom of religion and speech, the right to due process, to own and acquire property, freedom of assembly, to work, and to acquire an education. We can debate whether the UN has any business telling the nations of the world what rights their citizens should have. But to call the rights I just listed “satanic” requires a dark worldview — a worldview perfectly in tune with the Koran. We must remember that Islam is not just a religion. It is also a political system — a blueprint for government. Many of the freedoms listed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are useful in improving governments. But Islam sees it as impossible to improve on a government handed down by Allah. For Muslim true believers, freedom of religion is an insult to their prophet. If you want to see this in action, try to build a church in Saudi Arabia. The New Testament has exacting messages about God and His ways. But it doesn’t tell Christians to kill those who reject the message. It says to pray for them — not stone them. The newspaper Le Figaro editorialized that Islam should perhaps already be considered, “France’s prime religion.” According to the Montaigne Institute, the teaching of Arabic should be mandatory in French public schools. European leaders sometimes refer to Islam as a “denomination,” as if they were Lutherans or Presbyterians. Many Americans see it the same way. But they could not be more wrong. Belgium’s ISLAM Party believes it can turn Belgium into a “Islamist Democracy” by 2030. The French magazine, Causeur, talked about the ISLAM Party’s objective. “The program is confusingly simple: replace all the civil and penal codes with sharia law. Period.” The French newspaper, Le Figaro, says it won’t happen by 2030, but it will happen. “The European capital,” it said, “will be Muslim in twenty years.” Islam is both a religion and a political ideology. As a political system, it is infused with the fervency of religion. It is unbending and intolerant. And it cannot rest until it rules — everything and everyone.
