Malaysian Woman Caning Sentence Upheld


Well now it is unanimous. The judge, her father and the convicted woman all agree that she should be caned in the name of Islam. Just for drinking a beer.


Sharia is spreading
and the sooner the non-Muslim world realizes that "moderate" Islam is not coming to the rescue, the better. Sharia in non-Muslim countries should not even be considered. It must be fought at all costs.


Malaysia caning sentence upheld

A Malaysian Islamic court has upheld the caning sentence for a Muslim woman convicted of drinking beer at a hotel, local media reports have said.

If the punishment is carried out, Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, a 32-year-old mother of two, will become the first Muslim woman to be caned in the country.

She had originally been due to be caned late last month, but at the last minute the sentence was put on hold during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

At the time the government asked the Sharia High Court Appeals Panel in Kuantan, the capital of the eastern state of Pahang, to review the verdict.

But late on Monday a chief judge with the court announced that the sentence would be upheld.

Reacting to the news Kartika's father, Shukarno Abdul Muttlib, said that while the family had yet to be informed of the court's decision, his daughter "accepts the punishment" and would like it to be carried out as soon as possible.

"We obey the law [and] it's a challenge ... [but] it's the way of my life," he told the Associated Press.

No date has yet been set for the caning.

Rapper and actor Loon has joined the growing list of rappers that have converted to Islam. Some of the others who have made the same choice are Busta Rhymes, and Mos Def.

Loon had converted on a recent Dubai tour, and changed his name to Amir Junaid Muhadith. It would of been nice if he actually did his own research, instead of blindly accepting the Islam means peace con.


Congressional Candidate: No more Muslims to U.S.


Just yesterday a Brooklyn Imam stated that America is a "Judeo-Christian-Muslim Society". Many of us want to put an end to Muslim immigration and those that read conservative sites, know that our voice against Islam is on the rise. Now there is GOP candidate that has our back. Canyon Clowdus, I salute you.


Congressional candidate: No more Muslims to U.S.
By Trish Choate
Posted September 28, 2009

WASHINGTON — Big Country congressional hopeful Canyon Clowdus wants no more Muslim immigration to America.

But the conservative Republican doesn’t want to stop at the stance he outlined to radical blog “Dr. Bulldog & Ronin,” which endorses him for 11th Congressional District representative.

“It’s not just them,” Clowdus told a reporter Sunday night. “They need to check all immigrants. They used to assimilate.”

Instead, immigrants retain their beliefs, weakening America, Marble Falls businessman Clowdus said.

The 11th Congressional District covers a wide swath of West Texas and stretches down to include Marble Falls. The city is about 200 miles southeast of Abilene and about 50 miles from Austin.

Clowdus wants to halt Muslim immigration to stop what the blog termed a “Stealth Jihad” and “creeping sharia” to replace the Constitution with Islamic religious law.

A civil rights advocate said he reads the blog and is disappointed a congressional candidate is lending his credibility to efforts to divide Americans instead of bring them together.

The blog pushes the wrongheaded idea that there is a huge clash of civilizations between Christianity and Islam, said Eric Ward of the Chicago-based Center for New Community, a faith-based organization including Christians, Jews and Muslims.

“The truth of the matter is that the only clash that’s going on is amongst extremist elements in Christianity and Islam,” Ward said.

Christians and Muslims have much in common when it comes to values and the wish for an opportunity to work and better their lives, he said.

A San Angelo physician who is Muslim and immigrated to the United States 40 years ago said people with views like Clowdus’ have tunnel vision.

“One-fifth of the world’s population are Muslims,” Dr. Fazlur Rahman, an oncologist, said. “So for the benefit of Americans, we should understand them, learn their religion, culture and civilization for our benefit.”

Rahman said 6 million Muslims live in the United States.

“They worry about their own future and of their children just like everyone else,” he said.

Rahman became a U.S. citizen decades ago and raised a family in San Angelo. His writings on health care, science and other topics have appeared in The Dallas Morning News, the Houston Chronicle and other publications. He’s also a trustee of Austin College in Sherman.

Rahman said America has been successful because it is tolerant and multicultural.

There are bad Muslims just as there are bad Christians, Jews and people from all of the religious faiths, Rahman said.

“Every one of them has their fair share,” he said.

Muslims worry about their children’s future just like everyone else, he said.

A spokesman for an Islamic civil rights and advocacy group said the level of anti-Muslim rhetoric is rising, especially from the right.

“Our research has shown that this kind of rhetoric is coming from a minority of Americans, but it’s a very vocal minority,” said Ibrahim Hooper of the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations.

CAIR asks mainstream leaders to challenge anti-Muslim talk if they hear it because silence equals consent or unspoken approval, Hooper said.

“That’s why it’s the responsibility of people of goodwill in our society and particularly leaders in our society to challenge this kind of hate-filled bigoted rhetoric when it’s used anywhere in our society,” Hooper said.

Dr. Bulldog & Ronin listed CAIR among organizations supporting a “Stealth Jihad” with “Islamic Supremacists.”

Dr. Bulldog and Ronin wanted to know how Clowdus would fight this “creeping sharia” that uses the constitutional rights to freedom of religion and speech against Americans.

Clowdus’ reply: “How about CREEPY Sharia? Fuse lit ... back away from Canyon!”

Clowdus believes there are efforts to override national law with Islamic religious law, he said in an interview.


Hooper said that’s nonsense.

If a Muslim woman is allowed to wear a headscarf in the workplace or a Muslim man is allowed to go to Friday prayers — any accommodation of a Muslim in American society — then that vocal minority views it as a “creeping sharia,” he said.

“For some reason, it drives these people crazy when Muslims practice their faith,” Hooper said.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security doesn’t track immigrants’ religions, said Pat Reilly, a spokeswoman for DHS agency U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

People are identified by country of origin — not religion or ethnicity — in the DHS “Yearbook of Immigration Statistics.”

Neither U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway of Midland nor a second challenger, Chris Younts of San Angelo, share Clowdus’ views on Muslim immigration.

“Congressman Conaway is a strong proponent of immigration reform,” Conaway campaign spokesman Richard Hudson said. “But he does not have an immigration policy based on religion.”

Younts, a businessman, opposes illegal immigration, but he “believes that any law abiding citizen of another country should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. as long as they abide by our immigration policies and honor our Constitution,” Younts’ campaign spokesman Ken Burton said.

Conaway and Younts are also conservative Republicans.

Clowdus said that he e-mailed back and forth to Dr. Bulldog & Ronin for the interview posted Aug. 22 and that he doesn’t know the identity of the blog’s authors. The blog bills itself as “Conservative News, Views & Analysis of Events.”

Earlier in August, the blog endorsed Clowdus as a “non-politician in Texas who is fed up with all the Lefturds in Washington.”

The blog describes “Doctor Bulldog” as a theoretical physicist and electronic engineer who has served in the Air Force. He’s worked for private aerospace companies and moved recently from Silicon Valley to the Midwest, the blog said.

Its visitor count lists more than 1.2 million “Infidels.”

Ward said the blog’s definition of America and American-ness is very narrow and not embraced by most in the United States.

Muslims and Christians have cultural and religious differences, he said. But they don’t outweigh the common ground between them.

Suspect in Illinois Bomb Plot ‘Didn’t Like America Very Much’

Suspect in Illinois Bomb Plot ‘Didn’t Like America Very Much’
By DIRK JOHNSON
September 27, 2009

DECATUR, Ill. — The day before he was arrested Thursday on charges of plotting to blow up the federal building in Springfield, Michael C. Finton was working as a fry cook at Seals Fish & Chicken in this old factory town deep in the Illinois cornfields.

Tall and red-haired, Mr. Finton, 29, was known among co-workers as cheerful and polite, but unwavering when it came to religion and politics. He was especially critical of what he regarded as permissive society.

“He didn’t like America very much,” said Mariam Fadel, 18, who works the counter at Seals. “He didn’t think it was strict enough. He thought we needed more rules, so that people would behave.”

She recalled him talking about a troubled childhood that included running away from foster care. He also spoke of hopes to leave the United States someday, she said, and settle in Saudi Arabia.

Mr. Finton went by the nickname Talib Islam (student of Islam). The authorities say he had converted to the Islamic faith while in an Illinois prison from 2001 to 2006, serving a sentence for aggravated robbery and aggravated battery. Acquaintances say he had been living in Decatur, about 40 miles east of Springfield, for perhaps three years.

On a MySpace entry, Mr. Finton listed his hometown as Visalia, Calif., in the Central Valley, and claimed he attended high school in Warren, Mich. In the entry, he wrote of self-loathing before he found Islam. “Everybody liked me, yet I hated myself,” he wrote. “People thought I was smart, and reasonably good-looking, but to me, I was a moron, and a freak.”

Israeli Riot police, Palestinians Clash at Holy Site


Last week we saw the Obama mediated Israel-Palesterrorist meeting produce nothing. Today things have taken a turn for the worse. What will ye great one say about the Palestine's attacking Jews for no other reason then them wanting to pray? Anyone hear anything yet? I don't.


Israeli riot police, Palestinians clash at holy site

Palestinian protesters attempt to stop a Jewish prayer event outside the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem's Old City, where such events are normally banned.
By Richard Boudreaux
September 28, 2009


Reporting from Jerusalem - Israeli riot police entered the grounds of Islam's third-holiest shrine Sunday and fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse rock-throwing Palestinians who had gathered to prevent Jews from praying at the contested site in Jerusalem's Old City.

The 45-minute clash outside the Al Aqsa mosque underscored the volatility of Jerusalem's holy places in the decades-old Middle East conflict. It sparked protests by Jordan, the 22-member Arab League and the Palestinian Authority, which is engaged in U.S.-mediated efforts to revive peace talks with Israel.

Palestinian leaders called the Israeli police action a deliberate provocation. Police officials said Palestinians started the fight.

Seventeen police officers were reported hurt and 11 Palestinians arrested as the violence spilled into the narrow streets of the Old City and beyond. Medics said eight Palestinians were treated at hospitals.

The trouble started after about 200 religious Jews gathered outside the Old City's Dung Gate, intent on entering to pray in the compound revered by Jews as the Temple Mount and by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. Waiting near the mosque were about 150 Palestinian protesters who had been summoned by religious and civic leaders to block the Jews.

About 7 a.m., the gate opened and at least 70 police officers in riot gear escorted about 15 civilians inside, and fierce clashes ensued, witnesses said.

Initially police said they were escorting Jewish worshipers; later a police spokesman, Shmuel Ben Ruby, said the group was made up of non-Jewish French tourists.

Dmitri Diliani, a Palestinian Christian among the protesters, said at least two members of the escorted group wore kippahs, the skullcaps of observant Jewish men. Other protesters said they were convinced the police were ushering members of Israel's settler movement, whose communities on West Bank land claimed by the Palestinians are a source of contention.

Whoever they were, they quickly retreated as Palestinians began hurling rocks, chairs and shoes, according to Diliani and other witnesses.

Police pushed the Palestinians across a hilltop esplanade toward the mosque, where some of the protesters took refuge.

As other demonstrators tried to prevent the police from approaching the mosque, Muslim clerics arranged a truce, and the police left.

Religious and nationalist sentiment has made the site a tinderbox. Muslims believe the prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven from the spot, which is also home to the gilded Dome of the Rock shrine. Jews revere the place as the site of their first and second temples.

A visit in 2000 by Ariel Sharon, then Israel's opposition leader and later its prime minister, helped spark a violent Palestinian uprising. But forceful, large-scale Israeli police interventions in the compound are rare; Sunday's was the third in five years.

The site has been under Israeli control since its capture from Jordan in the 1967 Middle East War, but it is administered by a Muslim religious trust.

Under an agreement with the trust, Israelis may enter the compound under police escort but are barred from holding organized prayer sessions like the one planned for Sunday. In the face of such attempts in the past, Israeli police closed off access to the compound to prevent clashes.

By permitting an exception Sunday, said Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, Israel "is deliberately escalating tensions in Jerusalem," where Palestinians want to locate the capital of a future state.

"The fate of Jerusalem lies in negotiations," he said. "It will not be decided by violence or brutality."

Sunday's violence erupted as Jews prepared for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which started at sundown. It did not affect Jewish prayers at the Western Wall, at the foot of the compound.

America Called 'Judeo-Christian-Muslim Society'


Speaking from the recent Muslim Prayer Day at Capitol Hill, Brooklyn Imam Abdul Malik has stated that America is a 'Judeo-Christian-Muslim Society'. Unfortunately technically is he correct. Although I would like to ask him what he has in store for the Christians and Jews of America. After making the following statement, I am a bit concerned.

"we don’t want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy.”



SEPTEMBER 28, 2009
America called 'Judeo-Christian-Muslim society'

Some 3,000 Muslims attended a Juma prayer service on the grounds of the Capitol last week, The Washington Times reports, a gathering that participants called historic.

"Islam is part of America," Amina Haqq said. "It is not a Judeo-Christian society; it is a Judeo-Christian-Muslim society."

Rally organizer Abdul Malik praised American freedom.

"What we've done today, you couldn't do in any Muslim country," the Brooklyn imam said. "If you prayed on the palace lawn there, they'd lock you up."

The Washington Times story refers to "the taunts of Christian evangelists on the surrounding sidewalks" but provides no details; the comments section, though, has plenty.

Kids go to Serve sex in Dubai


Even though Dubai is supposed to be the crossroads of the world, things continue to change for the worse there.

For the record, anyone who takes part in this behavior is sick. Muslim or non-Muslim.

Hat tip to The Religion of Peace.

Kids go to serve sex in Dubai
By: J Dey 2009-09-21
Hundreds of minors flown out to Gulf to dance in bars, provide sex, as Ramzan month of abstinence ends

For three days now, 2,000 girls, almost all minors, have left for the Middle East, particularly Dubai, to feed the needs of a population starved of entertainment and sex post the rigours of Ramzan.


The girls have been told they are being taken to dance in bars, but it is implicit that they will double up as prostitutes for well-paying clients. Another 1,000 will leave by tomorrow.

Sources say there has been an approximate 20 per cent rise in the trafficking of minors over the last year.

And it's remarkably easy. Chennai and New Delhi were used as gateways instead of Mumbai where checks are more stringent.

SNIP

In an earlier newspaper report, Subhash Chakma, director of the Asian Centre for Human Rights, had said the government was not serious about checking human trafficking in the country.

"We have enough laws to deal with the problem but lack the will to enforce them."

Ashraf Khan, an agent, said he had been scouting for girls for the past five months. "I make around Rs 40,000 per girl if the deal goes through.

The recruitment process begins about three months before the migration to Gulf begins post Ramzan," said Khan.

In the Gulf, dance bars are shut during Ramzan and the licenses are revoked. All the girls working there are sent home. The exodus to the Gulf therefore begins post Ramzan.

"An average girl gets paid approximately Rs 1 lakh for a three month contract, while an experienced dancer gets around Rs 3 lakh for the same period," he added. In addition, experienced dancers get 50 per cent of the tips.

In Mumbai, possibly the best paymaster, the girls make around Rs 10,000 a month, which explains the Gulf rush.

On contract

Khan admitted that 70 per cent of the girls on the three-month contract are below 18 years and the papers are forged to show them as 21 years and above.

"I am going for the first time. My friends told me that the scene is good in Dubai and I will three times what I would earn in Mumbai," remarked Chandni.

Confirming the exodus, Ramesh Shetty (name changed), a bar owner from Kashimira said, "Five girls from my bar left for Dubai yesterday. We now have a shortfall of dancers, but they have promised to return after three months."

Once there, the girls are completely at the mercy of the operators as their passports are taken away so that they cannot escape.

Rakesh Pandey of Rakesh Tours admitted there had been a significant rise of passengers travelling economy class to New Delhi and Chennai in the past few days, of which a large number were female.

Islamic Center of Irving TX To "Teach" the Infidel About Islam


As usual we see Muslims reaching out in an effort to "teach" us lowly infidels about Islam. The problem is that they lie as their religion encourages them to , but it is probably safe to say that most non-Muslims will fall for it hook line and sinker.

The lies and deception have begun.....

Forum at Islamic Center of Irving gives attendees a chance to 'address the stereotypes'
Sunday, September 27, 2009
By LORI STAHL / The Dallas Morning News

On Saturday, the Islamic Center of Irving hosted a forum on the faith's contributions to world history. Next month it will have an open house called "Meet Your Muslim Neighbor."

After a week of alarming headlines, it's easy to see why such outreach programs exist.

"It gives you the forum to address the stereotypes," said Amy Moncrief, a ninth-grade world history teacher from Frisco who attended Saturday's event, which was also sponsored by the World Affairs Council. The seminar was aimed at educators, to teach them more about Islam to better prepare them to lead class discussions.

For three hours Saturday, Islamic leaders tried to counter the stereotype that equates their faith with terrorism.

Inside the Islamic Center, which houses a school as well as worship areas, Imam Shaikh Zia used a PowerPoint presentation to trace the faith's history and similarities to Christianity and Judaism.


Hey Imam....you forgot to metion that Islam says that Jesus will come back as Muslim and destroy the cross. Here, let me help you out, click HERE. No need to thank me.

SNIP

During a question-and answer session after the presentations, one schoolteacher asked the Islamic hosts what to make of the would-be terrorists in the news, saying, "Do you just consider that group not actually Muslim?"

Reem Elghonimi, a graduate student who was on the panel, nodded and said, "Islam can't even be applied to it as a term."


I see Reem has spit out the first lie. Islam clearly allows terrorism, as per Koran verses 8:12 & 8:13.


008.012
YUSUFALI: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers:
I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."

008.013
YUSUFALI: This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger:
If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment.

The information war continues.

Obama on Nuke Conflict With Iran: ‘I’m Not Interested in Victory’~Video

Obama Threatens Iran With Military Action!


Is the new King of the United Nations, actually going to take a stand against Iran and their nuclear ambitions?



Obama warns Iran: `come clean' on nukes
By CHARLES BABINGTON and ROBERT BURNS

PITTSBURGH – Backed by other world powers, President Barack Obama declared Friday that Iran is speeding down a path to confrontation and demanded that Tehran quickly "come clean" on all nuclear efforts and open a newly revealed secret site for close international inspection. He said he would not rule out military action if the Iranians refuse.

Obama joined the leaders of Britain and France in accusing the Islamic republic of clandestinely building an underground plant to make nuclear fuel that could be used to build an atomic bomb. Iranian officials acknowledged the facility but insisted it had been reported to nuclear authorities as required.

"Iran's action raised grave doubts" about its promise to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes only, Obama told a news conference at the conclusion of a G-20 summit whose focus on world economic recovery was overshadowed by disclosure of the Iranian plant.

Obama said a telling moment could come next week when Iran meets with U.S. and other major nations to discuss the nuclear issue.

"Iran is on notice that when we meet with them on Oct. 1 they are going to have to come clean and they are going to have to make a choice" between international isolation and giving up any aspirations to becoming a nuclear power, he said. If they refuse to give ground, they will stay on "a path that is going to lead to confrontation."

In a dramatic, early morning announcement about the secret Iranian facility, Obama said, "Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow. The size and configuration of this facility is inconsistent with a peaceful program."

Unbowed, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said his country had done nothing wrong and Obama would regret his accusations.

At a news conference in New York, Ahmadinejad said the plant wouldn't be operational for 18 months but sidestepped a question about whether Iran had sufficient enriched uranium to manufacture a nuclear weapon. Still, he said such armaments "are against humanity, they are inhumane," and he said anyone who pursues them "is retarded politically."

1000 Attend Islam Day in Hawaii


Hawaii finally had its first "Islam Day" yesterday. What is a bit strange is that at today's Muslim Prayer Day at Capitol Hill, approximately 1000 people showed up. About the same number that showed up in Hawaii alone for Islam Day. In attendance was Michael Ulanski, who served in the US Army and did two tours in Iraq. Apparently he read the Koran, fell in love and converted. Good work dude.


Islam Day honors commonality
First festival of its kind in Hawaii draws at least 1,000 to McCoy Pavilion

When the Hawai'i Legislature approved a resolution declaring Sept. 24 "Islam Day," the measure set of a firestorm of debate because the day fell so close to the date of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

But yesterday, politics was set aside as hundreds of people packed the McCoy Pavilion at Ala Moana Beach Park to celebrate Hawai'i's first Islam Day.

By 5 p.m., about 1,000 people had walked through the pavilion's gates and event organizers expected more as people got off work and headed to the park.

"We expected 200 to 300, so we're very pleased with the turnout," said Hakim Ouansafi, president of the Muslim Association of Hawaii, which sponsored the event.

More than a dozen Honolulu police officers and private security personnel patrolled the pavilion grounds, but there were no protests or reports of trouble.

"It's a historic day. It's long overdue," Ouansafi said. "It's a day of celebrating our commonality, a day of people of faith and no faith to get together and talk story."

The Legislature approved the resolution last session to acknowledge the "rich religious, scientific, cultural and artistic contributions" of the Islamic world. Yesterday was selected because it marked the end of Ramadan, the month in which Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset and make contributions to charities.

But the resolution sparked debate in Hawai'i and across the country because Islam Day fell in the same month as the Sept. 11 attacks. Critics were concerned about the link between the Islam religion and the extremists responsible for the attacks.

Ouansafi said criticism of Islam Day had subsided since the resolution was passed and opposition soon changed to support.

"A lot of people reacted out of fear and ignorance and they've had a chance to reflect a little bit more and people are coming around," he said.

Yesterday's event also doubled as a food drive for the Hawaii Foodbank. It featured games for children, free food, music and a panel discussion on "Coexistence in a Pluralistic Society."

Michael and Tami Ulanski of Red Hill went to yesterday's event for a special reason: Michael, who served two tours in Iraq with the Army, converted to the Muslim religion in April. Tami has not made the conversion and is a dedicated member of the New Hope church.

The Ulanskis were born and raised Catholics, but Michael Ulanski said he converted after reading the Quran for the first time so he could understand what he was dealing with while in Iraq.

"I started reading it and Chapter One, it just hit me. It grabbed me and everything about it made sense," he said. "It struck me as the right thing so I just kept at it and I kept studying it and reading it and decided after a month or two that that was the right thing for me."

Conservatives Speaking out=low Turnout at Muslim Prayer Event


What was originally being billed as a 50,000 Muslim prayer gathering, has now been documented as approximately 1000 Muslims showing up today at Capitol Hill. Muslims are stating that reason for the low turnout was that they were in fear of showing up because of the conservatives who have spoken out against the event. Christians even counter protested there today. I applaud everyone who has spoken out against this event. Remember we still have the numbers here, and within the law we can win this.


Muslims Gather at the Capitol for Prayer Event

About 1,000 people gathered Friday morning on the west front lawn of the Capitol, with more streaming in via charter buses and Metro, for a day of Muslim unity that organizers said was about prayer, not protest.

"We are decent Muslims," said one of the organizers, Imam Ali Jaaher from Dar-ul-Islam mosque in Elizabeth, N. J. "We work, we pay taxes. We are Muslims who truly love this country."

Organizers had said they hoped 50,000 worshipers would show up for the traditional Muslim afternoon prayer at 1 p.m. But they said many people have been frightened away by the backlash against the event. Some conservative Christian groups and bloggers have been calling it anti-Christian and un-American.

Two groups of protesters gathered across the traffic circle from the gathering, waving banners and flags and passing out flyers with crosses and pro-Christian messages. One group, which stood next to a large wooden cross and two giant wooden tablets depicting the 10 commandments, was led by the Rev. Flip Benham of Concord. N.H.

"I would suggest we convert to Christ," Benham shouted over a megaphone that was barely audible from the Muslim gathering. Islam "forces its dogma down your throat."

Benham said he heard about the event last week and brought about a dozen supporters from around the country to protest it. He called Islam a "false religion."

"Unfortunately, our president has opened up the door to this," he said, gesturing toward people streaming toward the gathering. He "has prostrated Christianity to the level of other religions. That's just stunning to me."

3 Islamic Terror Plots in 1 day. Where is the Muslim Outrage?

Smadi stood out because of his vehement intention to actually conduct terror attacks in the U.S....


The problem is clearly getting worse and worse here, so where is the Muslims outrage?
Oh, I forgot, they are too busy getting ready for their giant prayer gathering in Washington today. Which is nothing more than a show of unity and a huge political statement. Like I have been saying, American Muslims are no different from the rest. It is time to end all Muslim immigration and Mosque construction. We have enough of our own problems already, we do not need Islam adding more.

Islamic Civil War~What's Coming our way


This is an article written by Dr. Terry Jones, the Senior Pastor at Dove World Outreach Center. He speaks to us about Islam in Europe, and America. We've been warned.


Hi,

This is Dr. Terry Jones.

I would like to share a prophetic vision that I saw concerning our present world situation.

We have the rise of a very evil, religious and political force, called Islam. We particularly see that rise in Europe where Islam is slowly taking over. This is even recognized by most European governments. What I saw took place in the United Kingdom, where right now, the rise of radical Islam seems to be worsening everyday.

What I saw there was a civil war between the English people, and between the radical factions of Islam. This turned out to be a very, very bloody battle, of course caused by compromise in the political system, and caused by compromise in the church. We have gotten into a very deceptive realm in the church, I believe worldwide, where all we do mainly is call for prayer.

We do not call for accountability. I believe this was a vision and a warning. It is perhaps too late for Great Britain because of the apathy, because of the rise of Islam in that country, but it is not too late for us here in the United States.

We must unite! If we do not unite as Christians, then we will sooner or later be facing another very bloody civil war ourselves. So I call for us to unite, and not only call sessions of prayer. What we must do, we must march, and we must be active.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Dr. Terry Jones – Senior Pastor

New UN Resolution Aims at Nuclear-Free World


Once again we just how upside down the world is today. Just yesterday it was revealed that Iran will ask for nuclear fuel at a UN meeting next week. Today King of the UN Obama, is claiming that all countries will be giving up their nuclear weapons. Has anyone over there been paying attention to the fact that Iran is getting closer to having nuclear weapons, and their threats to Israel? Of course they have, they just do not care.


New UN resolution aims at nuclear-free world
By EDITH M. LEDERER

UNITED NATIONS – With U.S. President Barack Obama presiding over an historic session, the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved a U.S.-drafted resolution Thursday aimed at ridding the world of nuclear weapons.

Russia, China and developing nations supported the U.S.-sponsored measure, giving it global clout and strong political backing.

The resolution calls for stepped up efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, promote disarmament and "reduce the risk of nuclear terrorism."

It was only the fifth time the Security Council met at summit level since the U.N.
was founded in 1945. And Obama was the first American president to preside over a Security Council summit, gaveling the meeting into session and announcing that "the draft resolution has been adopted unanimously."

"The historic resolution we just adopted enshrines our shared commitment to a goal of a world without nuclear weapons," Obama said immediately after the vote. "And it brings Security Council agreement on a broad framework for action to reduce nuclear dangers as we work toward that goal."

Just one nuclear weapon set off in a major city could cause major destruction, Obama said.

He said the global effort would seek to "lock down all vulnerable nuclear materials within four years."

"This is not about singling out an individual nation," he said. "International law is not an empty promise, and treaties must be enforced."

"We will leave this meeting with renewed determination," Obama said.

Iran to ask for Nuclear Fuel at Talks Next Week


While the world sits and watches, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will represent his new hard line cabinet, and thumb his nose at the world by asking for nuclear fuel at a UN meeting next week. Will anyone stop this man? Israel?


Iran to ask for nuclear fuel at talks next week
By GEORGE JAHN

Iran's president says his country will ask the six world powers at nuclear talks next week for imports of highly enriched uranium — material that the U.S. fears Tehran wants to use to arm nuclear warheads.

Iran vehemently denies having nuclear weapons aspirations and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told The Associated Press on Tuesday that his country was seeking to buy uranium that is highly enriched — or near that level — to fuel a small research reactor.

He also made clear that Iran is seeking uranium that is enriched only to 20 percent — the threshold for the high-enrichment level but substantially below then 90 percent- plus grade needed for nuclear warheads.

"We are interested in purchasing it, and we'd like to offer that as an issue to expand discussions on the table for the next meeting," he told the AP on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

That request could put the U.S. and its five negotiating partners in a bind at the Oct. 1 talks in Geneva. Until now, Iran has produced only low-enriched uranium, but it could use refusal of its request as a pretext to start producing high-enriched material.

Ahead of the negotiations, the foreign ministers of the six nations — the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany — were meeting Wednesday on the sidelines of the General Assembly to discuss how to get Iran to stop uranium enrichment. Russian news agencies cited an official in the Russian delegation as saying Moscow does not rule out new sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.

U.N. sanctions on Iran are meant to prohibit exports of sensitive nuclear material and technology. The international community is unlikely to give Iran enriched uranium closer to weapons-grade level at a time when it wants Tehran to stop enrichment.

In the enrichment process, uranium oxide is processed into uranium hexafluoride, which then is spun to varying degrees of enrichment, with low-enriched uranium used for nuclear fuel and upper-end high-enriched uranium used for nuclear weapons.

Security Council refusal to waive the sanctions could give Tehran a plausible reason to turn to its own facilities and produce high-enriched uranium.

Since Iran's program was discovered seven years ago, it has put thousands of centrifuges online to churn out enriched uranium. But the International Atomic Energy Agency says the more than a ton of enriched material it has amassed is all below the 5 percent level and well below the 20 percent highly enriched mark.

Still Iran's accumulation of well over 1,000 kilograms (2,200 pounds) of low-enriched uranium gives it more than enough material to produce enough weapons-grade uranium through further enrichment for one nuclear weapon.

NY Helmsley Hotel Boots Pres. of Iran!


While Obama seems to have no issue with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad being on our turf, the Helmsley Hotel does. With a heads up from the United Against Nuclear Iran, Helmsley has given Mahmoud the NYC welcome he deserves.

A'jad gets heave-ho from Helmsley Hotel
By CARL CAMPANILE

The New York Helmsley Hotel last night abruptly canceled a long-planned banquet for next week after finding out that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was scheduled to attend and speak, The Post has learned.

Helmsley representatives told Ahmadinejad to beat it after being informed by the security group United Against Nuclear Iran that the Israel-hating, Holocaust-denying America basher was going to be in the house next Thursday.

Helmsley execs were unaware that Ahmadinejad -- who will be in town for a meeting of the UN General Assembly next week -- was involved in the event until informed by UANI yesterday.

An Iranian student group had booked the space months ago, said Howard Rubenstein, spokesman for Helmsley Properties.

"As soon as Helmsley corporate management learned of the possibility of either the Iranian Mission or President Ahmadinejad holding a function at the New York Helmsley Hotel, they immediately ordered the cancellation of that function," Rubenstein said.

"Neither the Iranian Mission nor President Ahmadinejad is welcome at any Helmsley facility. The Helmsley organization is grateful to United Against Nuclear Iran for bringing this matter to its attention so that appropriate action could be taken."

UANI applauded the New York Helmsley's move.

"We are pleased with the decision by the Helmsley group. Now more than ever, American corporations must realize that doing business with Iran provides legitimacy to a brutal dictator and indirectly supports the development of an Iranian nuclear bomb," UANI President Mark Wallace said last night.

In a letter to New York Helmsley general manager Mark Briskin, Wallace had warned about Ahmadinejad.

"By doing business with the Iranian government, the Helmsley is accepting blood money from a regime that brutally suppresses its own people and that is a danger to global security," Wallace wrote.

"Moreover, by providing a forum for President Ahmadinejad's speech, the Helmsley is serving as a bullhorn for the propaganda of the illegitimate leader of a brutal, theocratic dictatorship."

UANI also threatened a public boycott of Helmsley properties, if the company went ahead with the Ahmadinejad event.

Up to 24 More Sought in NY Terror Probe~35 Islamic Terrorist Camps in America!~Video

Here is the latest update to the "5-New York Homes Searched in Terrorism Probe" story.

Up to 24 More People Under Scrutiny as NYC Tightens Security in Terror Probe
Wednesday, September 23, 2009

NEW YORK — Police in New York City stepped up their patrols and increased their random searches on subways and buses Wednesday following reports that as many as 24 more people are under observation in a suspected cross-country terror plot.

Amid media reports that some public storage centers in the region were being raided, the FBI told FOX News that there may be "consensual searches" under way but they were not "raids."

No new search warrants have been filed in recent days, the FBI told FOX.

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security issued bulletins earlier this week warning law enforcement officials around the country to watch mass transit, stadiums, warehouses with rentable storage units and hotels for any unusual activity.

The feds circulated the internal alerts in the midst of the investigation into a suspected New York City-Colorado terror plot in which three people — an airport shuttle driver, his father and an imam — are in custody for allegedly lying to the government.


As this story unfolds, we see that more and more Muslims here are involved. But this problem goes way beyond this. There are actually at least 35 Islamic terrorist training camps here and our government is not doing a thing about it!



I encourage everyone reading to do their part and purchase this over hour long video. Show it to your friends, neighbors, local law enforcement agencies, universities, Churches, Temples, Synagogues, community leaders, and city and state legislators. We need to increase our voices on this issue until there is enough of us to force our politicians to take action. Investing just $10 for this powerful documentary is an easy way to get the word out. The facts in the video cannot be denied.

Al-Qaida Predicts Obama's Fall by Muslim Nation


Do we all remember when they left was saying that if Obama won the election, that things would get better with the Islamic world? Since he has taken office he has done nothing but cater to the Islamic world, yet the threat is as great as ever. Would anyone on the left care to answer why?



Al-Qaida predicts Obama's fall by Muslim nation
By PAUL SCHEMM and HADEEL AL-SHALCHI

CAIRO – Al-Qaida on Tuesday released a new 106-minute long video predicting President Barack Obama's downfall at the hands of the Muslim world.

The Arabic-language video, entitled "The West and the Dark Tunnel," is part of series of messages by the organization marking the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Bin Laden released a short message of his own on Sept. 14.

Like similar long messages on previous anniversaries, it featured testimony from several leading al-Qaida figures intercut with news footage from the past year.

As in the past, al-Qaida attempted to conflate Obama with his predecessor, George W. Bush, who was widely disliked by Muslims for his invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Many analysts believe that al-Qaida has been alarmed by Obama's comparative popularity in the Middle East, especially following his landmark speech to the Muslim world in Cairo in June.

"America has come in a new, hypocritical face. Smiling at us, but stabbing us with the same dagger that Bush used," said Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri in the message.

"God willing, your end will be at the hands of the Muslim nation, so that the world and history will be free of your crimes and lies," he said addressing Obama at the end of the two-part video.

The message also featured several appearances of Adam Gadahn, also known as Azzam al-Amriki, an American who grew up in southern California, converted to Islam and joined al-Qaida. He was charged with treason in 2006 and there is a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction.

Gadahn's remarks celebrating the defeat of Bush and ridiculing Obama suggest the video was made in late August or early September.

"The important question is will Obama and his Democrats learn from his predecessor's mistakes or will they go on repeating them until they too leave office in humiliation and disgrace," said the heavily bearded American, dressed in a white robe.

"Unfortunately for the Democrats, and judging by their first seven-and-a-half months at the helm of the sinking American ship, the prognosis doesn't look good," he said.

The message included a lengthy section on U.S. prisons and torture facilities and showed footage of what appeared to be an American torturing an Afghan for information by dunking his head into a bucket of water.

The SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors extremist Web sites, identified the person conducting the torture as Jonathan Keith Idema, who also appeared in last year's al-Qaida video.

The message also discussed the progress of the various jihadi movements around the world, in particular Taliban victories against U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

The video's strident anti-American tone and detailed enumeration of what it describes as the U.S. crimes was in sharp contrast to the earlier bin Laden message, which appeared to be an appeal to the American people to sever their ties with Israel and end the war with al-Qaida.

Obama Mediated Israel-Palestine Talks go Nowhere


The great Obama has struck again and accomplished nothing, just as he did by caving into Russia on the US missile defense systems in Europe. Foreign policy is obviously not his strong suit.


Mideast summit unlikely to relaunch peace talks
By KARIN LAUB and AMY TEIBEL

NEW YORK – The Israeli and Palestinian leaders shook hands at the start of their first face-to-face meeting Tuesday, hosted by President Barack Obama, but the small gesture was unlikely to translate into a quick resumption of peace talks.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas remain far apart on key issues, including Israeli settlement expansion and the agenda of future talks.

Obama said at the start of the trilateral talks that the sides have made some progress, but have much further to go. He told both leaders it's time to find a way to break the deadlock. "There is a powerful sense of urgency," he said.

Obama's Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, is to return to the Middle East for another round of mediation next week, and Israeli and Palestinian envoys are to come to Washington. Obama said he expects a progress report in mid-October.

The leaders went into the meeting with entrenched positions, and it was not clear whether the deadlock can be broken.

Abbas has said he won't renew negotiations without an Israeli settlement freeze, as sought by the U.S. and mandated by a U.S.-backed peace plan. Netanyahu insists there's no way he will halt construction in Israeli enclaves on land the Palestinians want for their state.

An Abbas aide, Yasser Abed Raddo, said that in the trilateral meeting Abbas restated his demand for a complete Israeli settlement freeze. Netanyahu, in turn, demanded that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state, Abed Raddo said. Abbas responded by saying that both sides should keep their commitments. The Palestinians argue that under previous understandings they are not required to do that.

Beyond the dispute over settlements, the two leaders are deadlocked on a more fundamental issue — the agenda of future peace talks.


The Palestinians want negotiations to resume on the same terms as last year's round between Abbas and Netanyahu's more pragmatic predecessor, Ehud Olmert. In those talks, which ended in late 2008, Israel agreed to discuss all so-called core issues, including the partition of Jerusalem. Netanyahu, a hardliner who came to power in March, insists Jerusalem is not up for discussion.

The wide gaps between Abbas and Netanyahu became only more apparent in last week's mediation mission by Mitchell, who held six meetings over four days with the two leaders.

Even though Mitchell returned to Washington empty-handed, Obama summoned Abbas and Netanyahu for a trilateral meeting Tuesday on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

General McChrystal Sides With Afghans Over US Troops


Just like his boss Obama, Afghanistan US General McChrystal, has chosen the civilians of Afghanistan over our great US troops. It is true that he wants more troops, but he clearly states that the civilians in Afghanistan are more important.

McChrystal is equally critical of the command he has led since June 15. The key weakness of ISAF, he says, is that it is not aggressively defending the Afghan population. "Pre-occupied with protection of our own forces, we have operated in a manner that distances us -- physically and psychologically -- from the people we seek to protect. . . . The insurgents cannot defeat us militarily; but we can defeat ourselves."


He fails to realize that we are defeating ourselves by fighting a politically correct war. Gen. McChrystal then follows in the footsteps of other US military "leaders" by making the following comment. Which basically means that the forces need to respect Islam.

McChrystal continues: "Afghan social, political, economic, and cultural affairs are complex and poorly understood. ISAF does not sufficiently appreciate the dynamics in local communities, nor how the insurgency, corruption, incompetent officials, power-brokers, and criminality all combine to affect the Afghan population."


The General then makes a statement that would make the great General Patton, spin in his grave. He admits that he will take troop members out of secured positions and place them in harms way, all to try to win the hearts and minds of the Afghanistan population. Funny, how that has not happened in approximately eight years there.

He also says that coalition forces will change their operational culture, in part by spending "as little time as possible in armored vehicles or behind the walls of forward operating bases." Strengthening Afghans' sense of security will require troops to take greater risks, " but the coalition "cannot succeed if it is unwilling to share risk, at least equally, with the people.


The general says his command is "not adequately executing the basics" of counterinsurgency by putting the Afghan people first. "ISAF personnel must be seen as guests of the Afghan people and their government, not an occupying army," he writes. "Key personnel in ISAF must receive training in local languages."


General McChrystal clearly does not understand that being the "guests" of Muslims, means that non-Muslims have to abide by the rules of Islam. That is not winning hearts and minds. That is bowing down to the ideology of the enemy.

General McChrystal is death sentence for our troops and he should be dismissed immediately. Our great troops deserve better, much better.

UK:Home Office Staff Told not to eat Near Muslims for Ramadan



In a continuing attempt from Muslims and their leftist partners to destroy the UK, Home Office employees were told not to be seen eating near their Muslim co-workers for the entire month of Ramadan.

For those who do not know, the Home Office is the lead government department for immigration and passports, drugs policy, counter-terrorism and police. What a message they are sending out....

Don't eat near Ramadan fasters, Home Office staff told
By JASON LEWIS

Home Office staff were officially warned not to eat in front of their fasting Muslim colleagues during Ramadan – in case it made them feel hungry.

The advice came in a taxpayer-funded internal document listing do’s and don’ts during the Muslim holy month, which ends this weekend.

But the guide is now at the centre of a row with Islamic groups who said it was more likely to incite hatred of Muslims than promote understanding.

The Home Office Islamic Network produced the five-page information sheet which says: ‘In practical terms, please be sensitive when eating lunch near a Muslim colleague who is fasting.

This can make an individual feel hungrier and make it more challenging to observe the fast.’

During the holy month devout Muslims do not drink or eat from dawn until sunset and, according to the document, must avoid ‘all obscene and irreligious sights and sounds’.

It also urged Home Office managers to be flexible over working arrangements.

It says: ‘The most likely need Muslim staff may present to managers during this period is for flexibility around working hours and break times as those fasting will have a slightly different routine from usual. Managers and Muslim staff should discuss what their needs are and be responsive and sensitive.’

Managers were also told: ‘Muslim staff who are fasting and whose environment allows it may wish to set out for work earlier than usual and finish their working day correspondingly early...in line with flexi-time arrangements.’

Last night a Home Office spokeswoman confirmed the document had been distributed to its staff and posted on the department’s internal intranet system.

She said: ‘It is not formal departmental guidance and was written by volunteers.’
The spokeswoman added that the Islamic Network was one of a number of staff faith and equality groups within the Home Office and was paid for by the taxpayer.

UK Nurse to Lose Job for Wearing Cross


The assault on Christianity in the UK continues, but at the same time Islam continues to grow stronger. The UK is quickly heading towards disaster and they need to put on the breaks before it is too late. At the end of the article, I have posted some interesting comments about this that were left on an Islamic site.


UK Nurse to Lose Job for Wearing Cross

CAIRO — A devout Christian nurse is being ordered to remove a cross or face suspension, The Sun reported Monday, September 21.

“Being told to take it off has completely and utterly shaken me,” Shirley Chaplin said.

"I don't want to have to decide between my faith and my job.”

The 54-year-old nurse, from the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust, was asked to stop wearing a silver Cross openly or face suspension.

She was also taken off duty over her Cross and was offered to switch to an administrative role.

Hospital officials argue wearing the Cross violates the uniform policy and poses danger to patients.

“I've worn it for years and now, at the end of my career, I'm told to take it off,” said Shirley, who has worn her Cross for the 38 years.


"For about 30 years I have worked in the NHS and nursed patients day and night and on no occasion has my cross caused me or anyone else, any injury - and to my knowledge, no patient has ever complained about me wearing it.

"The trust even refused to test the 'breaking strain' on the necklace.

"I can't explain how important the cross is to me. My Christian faith is what motivates me to care for others.”

Such a big deal

By SwordOfTruth on 2009-09-21 16:09 (GMT)


Why is the nurse being so stupid and making such a big deal out of it, and losing her job. The cross as every single denomination in christendom would say is not an article of faith, and a christian does not have to wear. Whilst a turban, a hijab, a skullcap, are all articles of faith for these religious communties.



Honestly who cares?

By Mohammed on 2009-09-21 15:43 (GMT)


Really who cares? There is a huge difference between the hijab and the crucifix. Hijab is obligatory and not simply a display of somebody's faith, while the crucifix is. It's a symbol of a false and way distorted religion loaded with contradictions! Centuries after the disappearance of the prophet Jesus (peace and blessing be upon) and out of the blue they decided to make him divine in a meeting. A gross distortion of his message, and a huge transgression on him.

NY RevolutionMuslim.com:Running Scared~Video

It is well known that this site and several others have posted videos from RevolutionMuslim.com. These videos contain clear hatred towards non-Muslims and the call for Islam to dominate the world. Their site was registered under a Go Daddy server. They have recently changed server locations and are now claiming to be using one in Islamic country.

6 Flags Muslim Family Day Sweeps Across America!~Video

Shortly after the massive 50,000 Muslim gathering on Capital Hill, an expected 54,000 Muslims will be gathering at 6 Flags Parks across America for Muslim Family Day. The event first started in September 2000 at the NJ 6 Flags in which approximately 2000 Muslims attended.

This year it will take place in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Louisville, New Jersey, San Antonio, San Francisco, and Washington DC. Last year at the LA park, Muslims requested that 6 Flag employees do not wear shorts. This way they will not "offend" Muslims. What will they request this year?

Once again we see Muslims in America uniting, while the average American is waiting for "moderate" Muslims to come and save the day. It will not happen.



One more thing, these events are sponsored by the Islamic Circle of North America. They are openly anti-Israel and are all for Islam dominating America.

Obviously American Muslims have no issues with these views.

UK:Two Christians Arrested for "Offending" a Muslim!


Once again we see just how backwards things in the UK are. Last week the Manchester Council was calling for an upcoming anti-Islam protest to be canceled. Now two Christians have been arrested for discussing Islam with a Muslim. Apparently non-Muslims there now have restrictions on their free speech, while Muslims can openly call for holy war.

Christian hotel owners hauled before court after defending their beliefs in discussion with Muslim guest
By JONATHAN PETRE
20th September 2009

A Christian couple have been charged with a criminal offence after taking part in what they regarded as a reasonable discussion about religion with guests at their hotel.

Ben and Sharon Vogelenzang were arrested after a Muslim woman complained to police that she had been offended by their comments.


They have been charged under public order laws with using ‘threatening, abusive or insulting words’ that were ‘religiously aggravated’.

The couple, whose trial has been set for December, face a fine of up to £5,000 and a criminal record if they are convicted.

Although the facts are disputed, it is thought that during the conversation the couple were challenged over their Christian beliefs.

It is understood that they suggested that Mohammed, the founder of Islam, was a warlord and that traditional Muslim dress for women was a form of bondage.

They deny, however, that their comments were threatening and argue that they had every right to defend and explain their beliefs.

Mrs Vogelenzang, 54, who has run the Bounty House Hotel near Aintree racecourse in Liverpool with her husband Ben, 53, for six years, said: ‘Nothing like this has happened to us before. We are completely shocked.’

She added that the episode had damaged their business and they had been forced to lay off staff and run the nine-bedroom hotel by themselves, leaving them exhausted.

Sources said that a number of guests staying at the hotel, which charges £92 a night for a double room, were having breakfast in its restaurant on March 20 when comments were made about religion.

One of those involved was the Muslim woman, who was staying at the hotel while she received treatment at a hospital nearby.

The couple, who are members of the Bootle Christian Fellowship, and their solicitor, David Whiting, said they could not discuss the content of the conversation for legal reasons. But the independent lobby group, the Christian Institute, which has seen both the prosecution and defence legal papers, is supporting their defence.

Mr Whiting, who last year successfully defended street preacher Anthony Rollins in Birmingham, said: ‘There is a dispute as to the facts of the allegations, but Ben and Sharon do not accept they were threatening, abusive or insulting.

‘They are committed Christians and it is the defence’s contention that they have every right to defend their religious beliefs and explain those beliefs to others who do not hold similar views.’

After the incident, the couple voluntarily attended St Anne’s Street police station in Liverpool, where they were interviewed under caution.

In July they were arrested and charged under Section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986 and Section 31 (1) (c) and (5) of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

Congressman Ellison Meets With CAIR Despite Ariz. Congressional Warning



A few days ago Islamocongressman Keith Ellison was given a letter from a Congressional delegation, stating that he should stay away from the Islamic terrorist supporters of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Mr. Ellison has once again shown us which side he is on, and has defied the request. Voting for Muslims is a mistake, as they will use the power to advance their Islamic agenda.

Hat tip to Macho Girl.

The only Muslim in Congress defied criticism from Arizona's congressional delegation and spoke Friday at a fundraiser for the local chapter of a national organization with suspected links to Hamas.

U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., and U.S. Reps. Trent Franks and John Shadegg, both Arizona Republicans, wrote a letter urging Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., to shun the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

"We are deeply concerned that any official support of this organization would undermine the legitimate concerns of federal investigators about CAIR's relationship to foreign terrorist organizations," the letter said.

But Ellison, a Muslim convert, came anyway and was applauded by about 300 people who attended a dinner at the Hilton Phoenix East/ Mesa. Ellison spoke about the fresh start in relations with Islamic countries under President Barack Obama's administration.

"I would never associate myself with anyone even soft on terrorism," he said before the speech. "We all want to fight terror. We all want to live in a safe community."

The fears Kyl, Franks and Shadegg expressed in the letter are "ridiculous," he said.

My Email to Pastor Brian McLaren~who is Celebrating Ramadan


This morning I posted an article about Pastor Brian McLaren, who has disgraced Christianity by celebrating Islam and fasting for the month of Ramadan. A couple of weeks ago, I had read about this and I wrote him this email.


Mr. McLaren,

I was reading your article, and Eboo Patel's article, about the two of you being fasting partners. If you would bother to read the comments in Patel's articles you would know that he is known liar and an Islamic propagandist.

All you are doing is hurting your fellow Christians be spreading false hope, as facts show us that the problems with Islam are getting worse across the world. Why don't you please point out the "moderate" Islamic movement that is speaking out against the persecution of Christians across the Islamic world ? If Christians do not unite and take a stand against Islam, Christianity will eventually be destroyed.

Did your "friend" Patel supply you with this information?

"What Islam Really Says About Jesus and his Return".

I ask you to please be honest with yourself and admit that interfaith talks with Muslims have not changed a thing. This can be seen across the world.

Take care,
Chris


Of course he took the easy way out and did not respond.

Muslims Find new Ramadan Fast Partners: Christians


I am very thankful that the voices of Christians against Islam are on the rise. Unfortunately there are also Christians who are disrespecting Christianity, by fasting for Ramadan. "Christians" like this who live in fantasy land and ignore the plight of Christians in Islamic countries are part of the problem.



Muslims find new Ramadan fast partners: Christians
By ERIC GORSKI

Like Muslims worldwide, Ben Ries has refrained from food and drink from sunrise to sundown in an act of self-restraint during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which ends this weekend.

Each evening, the 31-year-old Ries joins Muslim families in a room above a hardware store in Bellingham, Wash., to find fellowship and break the fast with a handful of dates and a welcome glass of water.

Only Ries is not a Muslim. He is pastor of 70-member Sterling Drive Church of Christ and a self-described committed Christian who just a few weeks ago had to turn to Google to find a Muslim in his community.

Ries is among a small group of Christians who've joined well-known evangelical author and speaker Brian McLaren in observing a Ramadan fast, opening a new chapter in interfaith relations between two traditions often at odds.

To McLaren and his Christian and Muslim fasting partners, it's a neighborly gesture of solidarity that deepens their respective faiths and sends a message about finding peace and common ground.

But the project also has faced fierce criticism.Some evangelicals say that fasting alongside Muslims at Ramadan, however well-intentioned, is a dangerous blurring of the lines and runs contrary to Christianity.

McLaren, 53, is the godfather of the "emerging" or "emergent" church, a loose-knit movement that seeks to recover ancient Christian worship practices and, in some cases, question traditional evangelical theology.

While fasting is part of Christian tradition, it isn't exactly a widespread practice. Some college students from different faiths have started interfaith "Fast-A-Thons" during Ramadan to raise money to fight poverty. But that usually involves fasting for a day, not committing to an entire month.

In announcing his Ramadan fast plans on his blog last month, McLaren wrote, "We are not doing so in order to become Muslims: we are deeply committed Christians. But as Christians, we want to come close to our Muslim neighbors and to share this important part of life with them." The goal is to join Muslims in the observance as "a God-honoring expression of peace, fellowship and neighborliness," he wrote.

McLaren, a former pastor, said his Ramadan fast is also part of his post-9-11 worldview.

"Some Christians in the U.S. are becoming more anti-Muslim," he said in an interview. "They are retrenching in a fearful, angry posture. Other Christians are saying now, in the aftermath of Sept. 11, we have to recommit ourselves to the work of peacemaking like never before. That has been my response."

Before Ramadan,McLaren sought a Muslim fasting partner. He found one in Eboo Patel, executive director of Chicago-based Interfaith Youth Core, which promotes interfaith cooperation.

Patel said there are important differences in his fast and McLaren's. As a Muslim, Patel said he fasts during Ramadan because the Prophet Muhammad fasted then, and because the first revelation of the Quran occurred that month.

"That is not something Brian shares, at least not in the same way," Patel said.
McLaren said he has discovered a handful of fellow Christians fasting during Ramadan. One has quietly been doing it for more than 20 years. Others are new to it — like Ries in Washington state.

Ries considers the idea consistent with his own efforts to reach out to people who are different. Only problem was, he didn't know any Muslims in Bellingham, a college town of 75,000 on the Northwest coast.

An Internet search introduced him to Monem Salam, the subject of the documentary "On a Wing and a Prayer," which followed Salam's journey of learning to fly and obtaining a pilot's license after Sept. 11.

The two had coffee a couple of days before Ramadan, hit it off, and a fast friendship was born.

"When you have a leader of a church or a community go through the experience of fasting an entire month of Ramadan, what happens is not only does he understand a little more about the Muslim or Islamic culture, but he has the podium, or the pulpit, to teach that to other people as well," said Salam, 37, who works for an investment firm that manages a large Sharia-compliant mutual fund.

Ries had fasted before, but not from water. About two weeks in, he said, his body adjusted. Ries also has been reading the Quran, not for spiritual sustenance but to learn something, he said. Joining the Muslim community to break fast each night has opened this eyes to their graciousness and hospitality, he said.

Ries said he faced questions from some in his flock and criticism from others who read about his fast.

"There is no violation of my own faith in this," Ries said. "The concern is that somehow, I'm endorsing this other path. But I tell people I believe Jesus is the son of God. I believe he is the way and the truth and the life. But I believe I don't get to say who goes to hell and who doesn't. That's God's job."

Of the anger he's encountered from some Christians who object, Ries said: "A major factor is fear ... if we move the line here, we'll move it further, and this is the beginning of the end."

Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., said the idea of Christians fasting at Ramadan appears at first to be neighborly solidarity, but it's more than that.

"The logic of Islam is obedience and submission," Mohler said. "It's by following these practices that a Muslim demonstrates his obedience to the rule of the law through the Quran. For a Christian to do the same automatically implies a submission to the same rule. And beyond that, it's an explicit affirmation that this is a good and holy thing. From a New Testament perspective, it is not a good and holy thing."

Christians should have friendships with people of other faith, but engaging in other traditions' worship practices is problematic, said Mark Driscoll, lead preaching pastor at Mars Hill Church in Seattle. Driscoll said that in this case, Christians and Muslims fast for different purposes and do not worship the same God.

Christians observing a Ramadan fast is "insane at best ... Sad, tragic, horrific, misguided, dangerous, wrong," Driscoll said. "If Christians want to pray during Ramadan, they should pray not with Muslims but for Muslims — that Muslims would come to know Jesus. To pray with Muslims absolutely dishonors Jesus."

There is disagreement among evangelicals about whether Christians and Muslims worship the same God; Muslims believe Jesus was a prophet and a teacher, but not the son of God.

Among Muslims, McLaren's Ramadan fast and invitation to other Christians to join him would be widely welcomed, with a "very small minority" wondering whether it's an effort to infiltrate and convert the Muslim community, said Akbar Ahmed, chairman of the Islamic studies department at American University.

"There is a high level of anti-Americanism in the Muslim world," Ahmed said. "Now they are going to say this propaganda that America hates us is not true. Here is a pastor who wants to understand us, who does not want to convert us, and who is even prepared to walk with us, to fast with us. That is a big gesture."

As Ramadan nears it end, McLaren said his fast has made him more sensitive to people who endure hunger every day without the promise of relief at sundown. And he said the commitment and self-discipline the fast requires has increased his respect for Muslims.

"I have felt Muslims don't want me to compromise and say belief doesn't matter," he said. "They want me to be a faithful Christian — a faithful Christian that doesn't want to destroy all Muslims."
