A Soft Jihad Grows in Brooklyn

A Soft Jihad Grows in Brooklyn
by A. Spero

Posted: 10/25/2007

In Brooklyn, New York, a public school named the Khalil Gibran International Academy (KGIA) has opened. Its primary purpose — demonstrated by its advisory board, its apparent curriculum and the lining of school walls with pictures of Arab figures and heroes, is to teach Arabic and Muslim language and culture and to inculcate the children with radical Islamic ideology.

One of the school’s more notorious public supporters is convicted cop-killer and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal. The school’s advisory board includes several imams, one of whom has displayed the Muslim Brotherhood slogan on his mosque’s website: “Jihad is our way, and death in the way of Allah is our promised end.”

A spokesperson for the school speaks not of the duties of American citizenship but the aspiration towards “global” citizenship. Perhaps that is why this public school, unlike P.S. 132, calls itself an “international academy.”

Many New Yorkers are appalled that taxpayer money is being used to finance a public school whose purpose will likely advance the Islamic religion and Islamist ethnic identity. Three local parents, two of whom are teachers, started a grassroots effort called Stop the Madrassa to question this inchoate madrassa disguised as a neutral public school.

Middle East scholar Daniel Pipes has written extensively about KGIA and other such schools now spreading across the country. On the opening day of school, Sept. 4, 2007, civil rights, religious and community leaders held a press conference on the steps of New York’s City Hall demanding answers from Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Schools Chancellor, Joel Klein. From out of town came Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, and attorney Brian Rooney of the Thomas More Law Center. That day, Citizens for American Values in Public Education was born, created to fight the problem of Islamization in schools across the country.

Immediately a request was made of the Department of Education, under the Freedom of Information Act, as to the curriculum, teachers, lesson plans and textbooks of the school. This is not unusual given that schools — for reasons of transparency and accreditation – must pre-publicize educational content prior to the school year. Indeed, many are wondering about the use of public money for an institution, such as this, with religious overtones. The response to these legitimate concerns is that those that are asking these questions must be “racists.”

For example, Mumia Abu-Jamal asserts: “Racist and right-wing groups and media outlets have demonized the school…” Councilmember Leticia James talks of “anti-Arab racism …” The New York Collective of Radical Educators, in its statement supporting KGIA, called on “New York City to continue to be a voice in the struggle against anti-Arab/anti-Islamic prejudice…” Even Brooklyn’s Borough President, Democrat Marty Markowitz, labeled inquiry into the school “disgraceful, xenophobic, and racist.”

The intent of calling “racist” those who question the school’s goals and legitimacy is, no doubt, to silence critics of the school’s agenda. This attempt to silence Americans is very similar to CAIR’s lawsuit that was brought by Muslim organizations against citizens on an airplane who alerted flight attendants of the fear they felt witnessing highly erratic conduct by six belligerent and provocative imams on a plane.

What should be every American’s right to self-defense, or the right to inform appropriate authorities of possible harm or danger, has now been characterized by a number of Muslim organizations as “criminal” and, somehow, a “violation of civil rights“ worthy of civil suit. Fortunately, House Republican Steve Pearce introduced the Protecting Americans Fighting Terrorism Act of 2007, protecting citizens from lawsuits when simply informing authorities of possible danger.

It appears that yet another strategy for silencing critics of radical Islam is emerging. It is alleging that critics of suspicious Muslim activities are guilty of “stalking,” “harassing,” or “assaulting.” This new mode of attack is, it seems, being hatched here in Brooklyn. Dhabah Almontaser, the school’s former principal, recently claimed that those non-Muslim community members who were critical of her stewardship at the school “stalked me wherever I went and verbally assaulted me with vicious anti-Arab and anti-Muslim comments.”

With her lawyer standing at her side at the press conference in which she made this claim, she sent a veiled threat of legal action against those who have criticized her. As usual, those merely critical of policies are being defamed as “anti-Muslim” and “viciously anti-Arab.” The fact is that, according to Citizens for American Values in Pubic Education and Stop the Madrassa, no one has followed Almontaser on the street or ever threatened her and there has been no personal harassment or stalking.

Ms. Almontaser knows this. Nonetheless, her hope, and the hope of her attorneys, is that concerned citizens in New York and elsewhere in the country will become intimidated by threats of prolonged and expensive lawsuits if they question alarming Muslim activity.

Almontaser resigned after a firestorm erupted regarding her support for some T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “Intifada NYC” that were distributed by AWAAM, one of the organizations affiliated with her. When asked to separate herself from such obvious incitement to violence, she told the New York Post that the slogan merely referred to a “shaking off” and was a chance for young girls to express that they are “shaking off oppression.” What “oppression,” she did not say. The Post reports that the co-founders of AWAAM, the distributors of the T-shirt are “active in the more militant pro-Palestinian group, al-Awda, whose main U.S. office is in California,” and that AWAAM is an active supporter of Hezbollah and Hamas.

In an interview with Amnesty International in Europe in January 2002, Almontaser stated that “I have realized that U.S. foreign policy is racist; in the ‘war against terror’ people of color are the target.” Such attitudes about our country raise legitimate concerns as to whether such a person should be a school principal of children for which the tax system is paying.

Most Americans, except for die-hard liberals and leftists, are prepared to fight the terrorism that we call the “hard jihad.” The left, though, seems unwilling to fight the “soft jihad” assaulting our culture and way of life. Many Americans who in the past were proud of that unique American penchant for being outspoken and truthful are now being cowed into silence by being called a racist when they are trying to protect themselves and the institutions they admire and love from deliberate damage and obliteration.

Those New Yorkers opposed to this school and those alarmed that such schools may spread across the country are not backing down and apparently will not be intimidated by legal threats. Citizens for American Values president Stuart Kaufman states, “We will not be silenced through threats of lawsuits or being falsely called names such as ‘racists’ and ‘haters’ and ‘bigots’ or other efforts to silence American citizens exercising their right to freedom of speech.”

In addition to the cop-killer, radical imams, and anti-Americans associated with
the school, Stop the Madrassa is also up against the usual multiculturalists who are pushing Islamic schools — though they themselves are not Muslims — as a further means to radically transform our culture and diminish the concept of Americanism historically taught in our public schools. The liberal left is a witting collaborator in the soft jihad that has already arrived on our shores and is moving westward, one that wishes to incrementally carve out Islamic principalities, and brazen influence, in our midst.

P.V. Exclusive: IslamoFascism Awareness Week – Dennis Prager Stuns Them at UCSB

P.V. Exclusive: IslamoFascism Awareness Week – Dennis Prager Stuns Them at UCSB

By Evrviglnt | October 26, 2007

Dennis Prager ready to speak.I made the drive up the coast tonight to see Dennis Prager speak at the University of California Santa Barbara. He was invited by the College Republicans, and he did not disappoint. This week is an emotional one for the college left – the bubble they live in has been punctured by an army of eloquent conservatives fanning out throughout the country to unveil a sensitive topic – Islamofascism. The crowd that packed Girvetz Theatre was amazingly behaved, and much of the credit for that has to go to Prager – he charmed the crowd into submission, and a wry smile came to his face when the last questioner of the night complained that she “didn’t like being manipulated.”

His speech centered on the values America must believe in to beat radical Islam, The crowd was well behaved. and the first 25 minutes were spent prying the word fascism from the scabbard of the Bush haters. There was a palpable angst in the room as he pounded home the message that Islamofascism was the description of 10% of the Islamic community (which was still 100 million, he said), not every Muslim, and to insist that Islamofascism Awareness Week was simply a “smokescreen” for an all out assault on Islam was purposefully simplistic. He then took the opportunity to lecture the students on just how insular the university environment was. They only heard one side of any issue most of the time, and that in terms of wisdom, they were just large kindergartners, a critique that sent nervous laughter around a room full of puffed up kinder-llectuals. Continuing, he said that this controlled environment led to a distorted understanding of morality, and ultimately the West needed to believe in its moral system if it was ever to stand up to extremist Islam. The dwindling influence of Western values on immigrants in Europe was a testament to this kind of impotence. He wrapped up the hour long soliloquy with a message to the Muslims in the audience. He said that liberalism was no friend to the cause of moderate Islam. The left had let millions of Muslims die in Afghanistan, and would do the same with those being murdered in Iraq and in the Sudan – history proved that. Today’s Left befriended them now because it was politically advantageous to do so. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” is how they saw things – they hated Bush, Muslims should feel victimized by his war against Islam – it was a match concocted by the jaundiced. Normally the left should be outraged by the sexism, oppression and homosexual intolerance found widespread in Wahhabi Islam, but they were silent in the face of actions that ought to horrify them. Hatred of President Bush had frozen the moral compass that traditionally led the idealistic liberal.

When he was done, they rushed to the mics.The question and answer period was an hour long and it sure felt like it. Dennis Prager sailed through it, shifting from pointed argument to playful bantor regardless of the hostility rising from the interrogator; it was fun to see those that obviously despised his message chuckle at his word play. But the challenges were predictable. When the lines formed after the speech, every green shirt in the crowd looked to be standing with notes in hand (green was the color of dissent). The first question came from a Muslim student – he railed against the fascist label and insisted Israel and America were the fascist aggressors in a world otherwise peaceful. The next man at the mike was a disheveled suit waving a book emblazoned with the title “The Israeli Lobby.” He said he would follow Dennis around until he interviewed the authors on his show about the fact that Jews were running American foreign policy and that Jews like Dennis formed a “fifth column” loyal only to Israel. Dennis took it well, but called the man an antisemite for such ignorant views, which so enraged the man that the police officers who were at every exit slowly moved to surrounded him. Someone yelled “Don’t tase him, bro!” and everyone laughed. Then Dennis yelled “Tase him, tase him!” and the laughter doubled.

Students were hung up on the Islamofascist moniker – in their minds there was onlyThese two Hamas tools were groaning all night. one fascist in the world today, and he was sitting in the white house. They wondered why Dennis was trying to slander the whole Islamic religion, and why he dismissed the Israeli hunting of innocent Palestinians and the support by Christians of Bush’s war on Iraq as not equal to the “overhyped” reports of Muslim violence in the Western media. Dennis demolished such relativistic notions of morality, explained that he viewed the Iraq war as a moral war, and explained again the import of unhinged reactions by Muslims over a cartoon whereas Christians endured a crucifix drowned in urine with only calls for a boycott. Moderate Muslims needed to take back their religion, he repeated, and groans erupted as the green bandannas around the room shook their heads in disgust. When another dismayed student bemoaned our loss of support from the international community, Dennis slammed the international community as a moral vacuum, having done nothing in situations of such depravity that failure to confront them proved utter corruption or cowardice. The crowd was buzzing when he announced that in those cases where evil ran rampant, the only ones to step up were decent countries willing to pick up arms and confront it, and that included America, and that was why America was superior to so many other countries. Such appeals to ‘jingoistic militarism’ had peaceniks gritting their teeth, but the rest of us applauded his words.

Prager answered all the questions he was asked.There was the obligatory global warming nutburger who found yet another chance to remind everyone that we’re all gonna die, and the antisemite burst through his J.C. Penney suit once again over a pointed remark by Prager about the prospects for peace depending upon Palestinians stopping the indoctrination their children with morning cartoons teaching them to kill the Jews, who “were the offspring of monkeys and pigs.” Aside from a few shouts and fists raised above heads as if in celebration of ‘Hamas power,’ the students at UCSB were great and the night came off without a hitch.

After reading Blackfive’s review of David Horowitz at Michigan, I really wondered what we expected to accomplish this week confronting Islamofascism. Was it enough to bring to a intellectually stale university environment the news that there is an evil portion of Islam running rampant, and that decent people ought not to fear grabbing for their weapons in defense of freedom? This war against extremism is in many ways a defensive war against a brooding, calculating enemy, and it’s difficult to see the sacrifices made by our bravest being diluted by media bias or clever insurgent public relations. Ultimately we need Muslims to resolve the murderous streak that runs through their religion, we can’t do it for them. Moderate Muslims must take back their religion. Having speakers like Dennis Prager remind us all that the Western values of freedom, respect and tolerance are worth inculcating is an important first step.

Who’s Afraid of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week?


Why is an idea so frightening to some members of the Columbia community that they need to organize a campaign to suppress it before it is even aired? Why have some Columbians taken it upon themselves to conduct a hate campaign against students who want to discuss issues that affect us all? Why, on the other hand, were many of these same groups determined to welcome to Columbia a dictator who is providing weapons to kill American men and women in Iraq, who has called for the extermination of the Jewish state, and who presides over a regime that has murdered 4,000 gays and hung women from cranes for alleged sexual improprieties? If the welcome mat was okay for Ahmadinejad, why do these people want to deny a platform to Columbia students who are concerned about the threat of Islamo-Fascism?

Is Islamo-Fascism a threat? In fact, this is exactly the kind of question that will be discussed during the week of Oct. 22-26 at Columbia, unless campus leftists obstruct it the way they did Jim Gilchrist’s attempt to discuss the border issue last year. The fascist threat is real, and not just in Iraq or Iran.

The next morning I saw the second airplane hit the twin towers, I knew ‘Jihad has come to America.’ Muhammad Attah was from Cairo, the same city I came from.

Dr. Daniel Pipes Discusses The Threat Of Radical Islam At Scuttled Islamo-Fascism Awareness Event

Dr. Pipes told the audience that “radical Islam is the problem and moderate Islam is the solution” and warned that the greatest danger to the West was in legal Islamism which is crafted to work, “through the system.”

According to Pipes, “The key battles in this war…are the political battles between ourselves” and in that conflict “public opinion” was more important than “soldiers on a battlefield.” He outlined two goals, the first being to, “marginalize radical Islam” and the second, to “strengthen the moderates.”

Dr. Pipes concluded his address, “Noting that the problem ultimately is…between Muslims among themselves” and that “Islam was not radical a few decades ago.”

As proof of this he compared it to the countries formerly operating under the ideologies of fascism and communism which are now considered allies of the West, stressing that “we must help the moderates” and that it was Muslims themselves who needed to be in the forefront of the reformation of Islam.

Islamo-Fascism Denial [Oct. 23 07]

There is nothing artful or contrived in the term “Islamo-Fascism.” It is derived from history itself. Hassan al Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood (from which today’s radical Muslim groups descend) was, after all, an open admirer and supporter of Adolf Hitler — as was the principal theorist of the modern jihad, Sayyid Qutb. During World War II, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, cousin of Yasir Arafat and spiritual godfather of Palestinian nationalism, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, prouncounced his pro-Nazi sympathies openly and proudly. In May 1941, he issued a fatwa calling upon the Germans to bomb Tel Aviv, and in November 1941 traveled to Berlin and met with Hitler. He implored the Nazi dictator to help implement a Final Solution in the Middle East. Then he went to the Balkans, where he spearheaded the creation of Muslim units of the Waffen SS.

In terms of the specific terrorist groups and entities mentioned in the MSA packet, all of them — along with many others — have indeed made clear that they wish to destroy the United States and dominate the world under an oppressive caliphate — that is, a unified Islamic state ruled by Islamic Sharia law:

Al-Qaeda: Osama bin Laden has said that the 9/11 attacks strengthened the Muslims, “which is a very good sign and a great step towards the unity of Muslims and establishing the Righteous Islamic Khilafah [caliphate] insha-Allah [Allah willing].” His second-in-command, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, has declared: “The war with Israel is not about a treaty, a cease-fire agreement, Sykes-Picot borders, national zeal, or disputed borders. It is rather a jihad for the sake of God until the religion of God is established. It is jihad for the liberation of Palestine, all Palestine, as well as every land that was a home for Islam, from Andalusia to Iraq. The whole world is an open field for us.”
Hamas: The Hamas Charter sets out its Islamic mission as global: “Its spatial dimension extends wherever on earth there are Muslims, who adopt Islam as their way of life; thus, it penetrates to the deepest reaches of the land and to the highest spheres of Heavens. . . . By virtue of the distribution of Muslims, who pursue the cause of the Hamas, all over the globe, and strive for its victory, for the reinforcement of its positions and for the encouragement of its Jihad, the Movement is a universal one.” Universal in what way? The Palestinian Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi exhorted believers in 2002 “Oh beloved, look to the East of the earth, find Japan and the ocean; look to the West of the earth, find [some] country and the ocean. Be assured that these will be owned by the Muslim nation, as the Hadith says . . . ‘from the ocean to the ocean.'”

The Muslim Brotherhood: Its founder, Hasan Al-Banna, wrote that “it is a duty incumbent on every Muslim to struggle towards the aim of making every people Muslim and the whole world Islamic, so that the banner of Islam can flutter over the earth and the call of the Muezzin can resound in all the corners of the world: God is greatest [Allahu akbar]!” Despite recent claims to the contrary, there is no evidence that the Brotherhood has renounced this goal.

Hezbollah: Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has made clear that he wishes to pose a threat to the United States: “Let the entire world hear me. Our hostility to the Great Satan is absolute.…I conclude my speech with the slogan that will continue to reverberate on all occasions so that nobody will think that we have weakened. Regardless of how the world has changed after 11 September, Death to America will remain our reverberating and powerful slogan: Death to America.”

The Islamic Republic of Iran: While as a Shi’ite he does not wish to see the establishment of a caliphate, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad harbors similar dreams of Islamic domination. He said in 2005: “we will soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism and will breathe in the brilliant time of Islamic sovereignty over today’s world.”

And in terms of Saddam Hussein, suffice it to say that there was a reason he trained thousands of Islamic jihad terrorists from all over the Middle East at camps in Iraq over the four years preceding the U.S. invasion.

 Nonie Darwish vs. Berkeley Left On “Islamo-Fascism” …  

Why ‘Islamofascism’ correctly identifies threat [Oct. 25 07]

Islamofascism is an ideology that seeks a global theocracy under the dictatorship of a caliph. Everyone will be converted to their extremist interpretation of Islam, and any one who resists will be killed in the name of Allah. These extremists, however, do not represent the basic beliefs of Islam, and their message and methods resemble Nazis more than Muslims. Their goals are almost a mirror image of Hitler’s dreams of world domination and extermination of the Jews, except their justification claims to be rooted in Islam rather than German nationalism.

How is “Islamofascism” a racist term? It isn’t. The term has nothing to do with the ethnicity of our enemy, nor should it. The term is a fusion of Islam – which is a religion and not a race – and fascism. Most of the terrorists are ethnically Arabic, but the membership of al-Qaida and similar networks is not exclusively Arabic. The focus of the word is fascism, which is used to describe the terrorists’ methods and goals.

How does the phrase “militant fundamentalist Muslims” more accurately describe who we are fighting? It doesn’t. Our enemy is indeed militant and claims to be Muslim, but their breed of Islam is not fundamentalist. The fundamentals of Islam are faith, worship, charity, sacrifice and pilgrimage. Islamofacism has interpreted Islam as not only a religion but an entire political and economic system as well. They have twisted the meaning of holy war into a tangible fight against infidels when the concept of jihad is supposed to be an internalized battle within the human conscience.

Islamo-fascism Awareness Week a success

October 29, 2007

Islamo-fascism Awareness Week is not about racism, bigotry, Islamo-phobia or a claim that all Muslims are radical and seek to harm those who don’t agree with them. It is to raise awareness about the growing group who are.

Islamo-fascists are a group whose deadly fascistic ideology has affected close to every country on the globe, made almost 9,000 attacks since September 11, 2001, and now kills about 1,300 people per year.

The Left Tries to Quash Free Speech

October 23rd, 2007 by Warner Todd Huston

Once again, the fascist left tries to quash free speech on one of our oppressive University campuses. Here is a great report on it from some folks who banded together to record the event on video and photographs.

Nonie Darwish at Berkeley during Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week.

“Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” is a nationwide series of lectures and presentations organized by conservative writer David Horowitz and his various organizations. On the evening of October 22, dozens of famous speakers gave lectures at universities around the country, mostly on the subject of Islamic extremism. The presenter at U.C. Berkeley that evening was Nonie Darwish, an Arab-American author and feminist who has become a Muslim apostate and vociferous critic of radical Islam.

Her appearance at Cal was sponsored by the Berkeley College Republicans, and strongly opposed by several left-wing groups and Muslim organizations, including World Can’t Wait, the Muslim Students Association, and Students for Justice in Palestine. Her speech was even condemned by the ASUC, the official student governing body at Berkeley.

Please, please go to the site and view the hate spewed by the anti-American left infesting our schools.

The report was created by a coalition of folks trying to get out the word.

This report is an experiment in collaborative online journalism. The photos on this page were taken by seven different photographers, each working independently and unknown to one another, who submitted their pictures, videos and observations to a central editor, where they were compiled into a single report. The online nicknames of the seven “citizen journalists” are: bbuck, Chicken Kiev, Dan K., Luvpotion v.9.0, Marwan’s Daughter, neocon hippie, and Temmy. The central editor who created this report — and who did not actually attend the event itself — was me, zombie, the proprietor of this site. I edited the images and videos, and wrote the captions and introduction; the citizen journalists took the photos and videos, and provided first-hand observations and notes, which are the basis of this report.

October 21, 2007



The Indo-Pakistani War of 1965, also known as the Second Kashmir War, was the culmination of a series of skirmishes that occurred between April 1965 and September 1965 between India and Pakistan. The war was the second fought between India and Pakistan over the region of Kashmir, the first having been fought in 1947. The war lasted five weeks, resulted in thousands of casualties on both sides and ended in a United Nations (UN) mandated ceasefire. It is generally accepted that the war began following the failure of Pakistan’s Operation Gibraltar which was designed to infiltrate and invade Jammu and Kashmir.

Much of the war was fought by the countries’ land forces in the region of Kashmir and along the International Border between India and Pakistan. This war saw the largest amassing of troops in Kashmir, a number that was overshadowed only during the 2001-2002 military standoff between India and Pakistan. Most of the war was fought on land by each country’s infantry and armored units, with substantial backing from their air forces.

For more than ten years Islamic militants in the India/Pakistan state of Kashmir have been waging ethnic war against anyone not Muslim. Of course, no sides in these conflicts have been well behaved, terrorists are in almost every ethnic group. This photo here shows the result of a recent Muslim suicide bomber, Fifteen people were killed.

October 22, 1982: Daniel Jordan, a leader in the Bahai faith from California was assassinated by Iranian anti-Bahai terrorists. Jordan’s body was found in a Stamford, Connecticut parking lot. He had been murdered by a single stab wound in the neck. Jordan was dean of education at National University in San Diego. Followers of the religion had been executed in Iran under orders of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

October 22, 1982: Afghanis fired American-supplied rockets into the Soviet Embassy in Kabul in the first major attack against the compound since the Soviet Union intervened militarily in Afghanistan in December 1979.

October 22, 1986: For the second time this month, the Soviet Embassy in Lebanon was fired on by gunmen in a passing car. Muslims were not pleased that the Soviets had played hardball when compelled to rescue kidnap victims.

October 22, 1987: A missile attack on Kuwait’s largest offshore oil terminal destroyed the facility. Iran, which actually manufactures its own missiles (supplying most of them to Hizballah, the PLO, and HAMAS) was responsible.

October 22, 1996: A PKK suicide bombing in Sivas killed three policemen and the Islamic buffoon—a Muslim woman.October 1997: An international meeting was held in Tehran, Iran with over 20 Islamic terrorist groups in attendance. As a result, a campaign of attacks was planned against the Zionists and the Crusaders – Jews and Americans.

The Tehran summit decided to use non-Iranian Islamist organizations as the spokesmen for their agenda so as to give it a pan-Islamic flavor. Ayman al-Zawahiri’s al Jihad Group, an Egyptian Sunni organization, issued the initial communiqué calling for jihad against the U.S. and Israel. The press release from the world’s second best known terrorist read: “The United States will realize that its real enemy is Islamic Jihad, the Jihad of the entire Muslim nation against the world dominance of America, against the international influence of the Jews, and against the U.S. occupation of Muslim lands.”.

October 22, 1999: Egypt closed the Cairo office of the Abu Nidal terrorist club, seizing the group’s bank accounts. If they closed the offices, it meant that for a decade or more, one of the world’s most murderous organizations – one that had killed Americans – was headquartered in Egypt.

Had CNN’s Christianne Amanpour’s “God’s Warriors” not be a propaganda piece

September 2, 2007

Had CNN’s Christianne Amanpour’s “God’s Warriors” not be a propaganda piece

Had it be a documentary:

You would have seen:
Muslim clerics calling to kill non Muslims for no reason at all, for Allah.

You would have seen: Video clips of homicide-bombers shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ (Allah is great!), at each massacre the Islamists perform.

You would have seen:
Jihad camps where little kids are being taught how non Muslims are apes and pigs and should be eliminated.

You would have seen:
Non violent Christians protesting abortion clinics (stressing the usual ‘non-violence’ aspect NOT the isolated ‘bombing’ of a clinic).

You would have seen:
Non-violent Jews protesting spiritually the Arab forcing upon Israel’s cleansing of Jews in Gaza and giving it over to fascist Hamas

You would NOT see:
Connecting life and death issues of anti terrorism, by secular state of Israel.

You would NOT see:
Connecting Falwell’s preaching of morality in a ‘Jihad’ light.

Muslim Sheik: ‘It’s OK to kill non-Muslims’

Hamas Video: We will drink the blood of the Jews

…Why does the mainstream media 6 years after 9/11 continue to hide the fact that both the Koran and Hadith clearly and explicitly command the genocide of every Christian, Jew and non Muslim on Earth for eternal paradise in Heaven with God of Mount Sinai, crystal clear streams, 72 virgins per martyr and believer, endless wine with no side effects and 80,000 servants per martyr and believer? Why does your mainstream media not trust you to know this?

Holy War against the infidels (Jews, Christians and Muslims who do not practice the real Islam) 

  “Ask for Death!” The Indoctrination of Palestinian Children  “The Moslem sacrifices… wages Jihad [Holy War] for Allah

The principal of an Islamic school has admitted that it uses textbooks which describe Jews as “apes” and Christians as “pigs” and has refused to withdraw’apes’+ad mits+head+of+Islamic+school/

To the Islamists of CAIR: How dare you exploit Americans’ tolerance to your fascism?

August 9, 2007

To the Islamists of CAIR: How dare you exploit Americans’ tolerance to your fascism?

Each now & then we are hit by another of a CAIR stunt, be it defending the flying Imams that were chanting pro Bin Laden slogans, or catagorizing as “hate” an enraged understandable student in Pace university [regardless if one agrees with his particular expression of: flushing the Quran down the toilet] over Islamists’ actions against showing the ‘Obsession’ movie – that exposes Islamofascism & world Jihad.

The Islamists know us all too well, they know how Christian/Jews in America are so sensitive to human rights, to equality & to freedom, values that they never see in their dark Arab Muslim world.

If you follow CAIR’s actions, you see the pattern of playing on Americans’ kindness, so typically of Islamists as they are, their tactics are simple but cruel, make Americans feel bad so they will have to go that extra mile towards Muslims, take the ‘flying Imams’ case for example, don’t they just love using the assumption of “innocent until proven guilty” on the expense of our vital security when it’s a matter of life and death?
Well, of course this legal term still holds value in court, but if it really comes down to survival should anyone blink an eye when one hears “devout” Muslims praising Al Qaeda? I mean, how “innocent” can such “holy” imams be?

Their immediate goal: empower all Muslims including radicals!
Their long term goal, well, if you know what Caliphate, global domination & Islamization means, then you have the answer.

Let alone the enormous hypocrisy that these supporters of champions in hatred of non Muslims [like the MSA & pro-genocide fascist Hamas] are the ones that try to define the Pace university incident as a ‘hate crime’.

Still, we can never figure out any basis on which a “moderate” status has been mistakenly attached to them by some, after all, their support for radical Jihadism like terror organizations such as: Hamas is all documented.

Islam’s Global War against Christianity
Islam’s Global War against Christianity
By Patrick PooleFrom Nigeria to Indonesia, Christians are under siege in virtually every single country in the Muslim world, the victims of countless acts of discrimination, depredation, brutality, and murder that are so widespread and systematic that it can rightfully be called the new Holocaust. This time, however, the perpetrators of this Holocaust aren’t wearing swastikas, but kufi skull caps and hijabs.

Some of the oldest Christian communities in the world are subject to relentless attack and teeter on the brink of extinction at the hands of the “Religion of Peace”: Palestinian Christians in Gaza and the West Bank; Assyrian, Syriac and Chaldean Christians in Iraq; Coptic Christians in Egypt; Evangelical and Orthodox Christians in Eastern Ethiopia and Eritrea; Armenian Orthodox Christians in Turkey; and Maronite Christians in Lebanon.

Several of these communities date back to the beginning decades of Christianity and all have weathered wave after wave of Islamic persecution for centuries and more, but in the very near future some will simply cease to exist. In our lifetime, the only trace of their past existence will be in footnotes in history books (and probably only Western history books at that).

Meanwhile, we in the West hear much from radical Islam’s apologists how the US is engaged in a war against Islam citing of our military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. We are lectured on the inviolability of the Muslim ummah and justifications of defensive jihad.

But an extensive search this past weekend of the websites of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Student Association, the Fiqh Council of North America, and the Muslim Public Affairs Committee – the most visible institutional representatives of Islam in America found not a single mention or reference of the religious persecution of Christians by their Islamic co-religionists, thereby making them tacit co-conspirators in the Final Solution to the Christian problem in the Muslim

The global war on Christianity by Islam is so massive in size and scope that it is virtually impossible to describe without trivializing it. Inspired by Muslim Brotherhood ideology and fueled by billions of Wahhabi petrodollars, the religious cleansing of Christians from the Muslim world is continuing at a break-neck pace, as the following recent examples demonstrate.

Iraq: In the current issue of the American Spectator, Doug Bandow observes that centuries of dhimmitude have left Christians in the war-torn country without any means of self-defense. Washington policymakers have refused to lend assistance for fear of showing partiality, despite the murder of hundreds of Iraqi Christians, the kidnapping and torture of Christian clerics, the repeated bombings of Christian churches, the torching of Christian businesses, and the flight of close to half of the entire Iraqi Christian population since April 2003. Those who remain have been subject to the imposition of shari’a by the Shi’ite Mahdi Army and Sunni militias (al-Qaeda doesn’t bother with such niceties, preferring to murder them immediately instead), including the recent published threat in Mosul of killing one member of every Christian family in that city for Christian women not wearing the hijab and continuing to attend school. (Be sure to remember that the next time an Islamist apologist claims
that the hijab is a symbol of women’s liberation.)

Egypt: Journalist Magdi Khalil chronicles in a new report (“Another Black Friday for the Coptic Christians of Egypt”) the campaign of violence directed against Christian Copts almost weekly immediately following Friday afternoon Muslim prayers. Inspired by Islamist imams preaching religious hatred in mosques all over the country and protected by government officials willing to look the other way, rampaging mobs of Muslims set upon Christians churches, businesses and individuals, from Alexandria to cities all the way up the Nile. Coptic holy daysare also favorite times for Muslim violence, which the Egyptian media likes to
describe as “sectarian strife” – as if it were actually a two-sided affair.

Gaza: Ethel Fenig recently noted here at American Thinker (“More Gaza
Multiculturalism”) the systematic destruction of churches and desecration of Christian religious objects by Jihadia Salafiya following the HAMAS takeover of the Gaza Strip from their Fatah rivals and the imposition of Islamic rule. The head of Jihadia Salafiya told reporter Aaron Klein that any suspected Christian missionary activity in the area will be “dealt with harshly”. (Ynet News)

Saudi Arabia: According to the Arab News, a Sri Lankan Christian man barely escaped with his life in late May when he was found working in the city of Mecca, Islam’s holiest city, which is officially barred to non-Muslims. In December, an Indian man had been sentenced to death for accidentally entering the city, but was spared after the Indian embassy made an urgent appeal to the
Saudi Supreme Court.

Pakistan: In Islamabad, Younis Masih was sentenced last month to death under the country’s frequently invoked blasphemy laws, which were also used against six Christian women suspended from a nursing school after they were accused of desecrating a Quran. And as protests against Salman Rushdie’s knighthood raged, a Muslim mob armed with guns, axes and sticks attacked Christians worshipping in a Salvation Army church in Bismillahlpur Kanthan. (Associated Press; United
Press International; Mission News Network)

Bangladesh: Almost a dozen Christian converts in the Nilphamari district were beaten last week by Muslim villagers wielding bricks and clubs, and threatened with death if they did not leave town immediately. Local hospitals subsequently refused them treatment. Christians in the area have also been prevented from using the only potable water well in the area after a pronouncement by religious authorities at the mosque in Durbachari. This came after 42 former Muslims were baptized as Christians in the local river on June 12. (Compass News Direct)

Malaysia: Government authorities demolished a church building on June 4th in Orang Asli settlement in Gua Musang in Ulu Kelantan, despite prior government approval of the project. The church was built on donated property after the entire village had converted to Christianity just a few months ago. Also in late May, the Malaysian high court ruled that Muslims who convert to Christianity must appeal to the religious shari’a courts to officially be deregistered as Muslims and reregistered as a Christians. (Journal Chretien; Associated Press)

Indonesia: Agence France Presse reported last month on an attack by the Islamic Anti-Apostate Movement, who stormed a church service in a Protestant church in the West Java town of Soreang. The AFP report notes that more than 30 churches have been forced to close in West Java and dozens more throughout the country in recent years due to Muslim violence, churches which were among the few spared during the outbreak of hostilities during 1997-1998, where hundreds of Christian churches were burned to the ground and never rebuilt.

Turkey: The Christian community is still reeling from the torture and ritual
slaughter of three Protestants at a Christian publishing house in Malatya in
April by an armed Islamist gang, which was preceded by the murder last year of Catholic priest Andrea Santoro in Trabzon and the assassination of Armenian journalist Hrant Dink in Istanbul in January. An additional six men allegedly associated with the same Muslim gang were arrested on May 30th for plotting an attack on a Christian pastor in Diyarbakir. (Lebanon Daily Star; ADKNI)

Cyprus: The Cyprus Mail reports that during a meeting last month in Rome the Archbishop of the Cypriot Greek Orthodox Church pleaded with the Vatican Secretary of State for the Pope’s assistance to pressure Turkish authorities in restoring and repairing Christian sites and churches in areas occupied since the invasion of the island nation by Turkey in July 1974 and the ethnic cleansing of 160,000 Greek Christian Cypriots.

Lebanon: More than 60,000 Christians have left the country since last summer’s war between Hezbollah and Israel, fearing the rise of both Sunni and Shi’ite extremism and terrorist activity. The Sunday Telegraph recently revealed the results of a poll finding that at least half of Lebanon’s Maronite community were considering leaving the country. More than 100,000 have already submitted visa applications at foreign embassies.

Algeria: In what is considered one of the more “moderate” Muslim regimes, Al-Quds Al-Arabi announced that the Algerian government has just issued regulations requiring advance permission for non-Muslim public events, following a 2006 law aimed at limiting Christian evangelism in the Kabylia region and the Sahara. (MEMRI )

Morocco: In the country that The Economist magazine in 2005 anointed “the best
Arab democracy”, all Moroccans are considered Muslims at birth and face three years in prison if they attempt to convert. They are also prohibited from entering any of the few churches permitted to operate for the foreign
inhabitants of the country. Moroccan Christians must operate covertly for fear of imprisonment by the government and attacks by Islamists. They cannot bury their dead in Christian cemeteries, and they must be married by Islamic authorities or face charges of adultery. Late last year, a 64 year-old German tourist, Sadek Noshi Yassa, was sentenced to six months in jail and fined for missionary activity. (Journal Chretien)

Nigeria: Police in Gombe arrested sixteen suspects after a Muslim mob stoned,
stripped, beat, and finally stabbed to death a Christian teacher, Christiana
Oluwatoyin Oluwasesin, after she caught a student cheating on an exam in March.
Her body was then burned beyond recognition by the mob who falsely accused her of desecrating a Quran. The suspects were released last month without any charges being filed, prompting Christian leaders to accuse government authorities of a cover-up and raising concerns about additional attacks.
(Christian Today)

Eritrea: Just a few weeks ago, the Islamic government installed a new Orthodox Patriarch after they removed the previous Patriarch and placed him under house arrest for no stated reason. Compass News Direct reported in February the death of Magos Solomon Semere, a Christian who had been imprisoned in a military jail for four and a half years for illegal Christian worship, the third Christian to die in government custody since October. Authorities have also cracked down on unapproved churches, jailing at least two thousand Protestants and members of the Medhane Alem Orthodox renewal movement since the beginning of the year and publicly burning confiscated Bibles. (Christian Post; Compass News Direct ; Journal Chretien)

It is not an exaggeration to say that I could extend this brief list ad
infinitum with additional Islamic countries and news items from just the past few weeks’ worth of incidents of violence, discrimination, intimidation and murder targeting Christians in the Muslim world. In many instances, the government and religious authorities in these Muslim countries work hand-in-hand in their campaign of religious persecution.

A scene in the Academy Award-winning movie Schindler’s List gives us some insight into what is happening all across the Muslim world with respect to Christianity. As the SS Commandant Amon Göth and his Nazi Stormtroopers prepare to liquidate the Jewish ghetto in Krakow, Poland, Göth (played in the movie by Ralph Fiennes) gives his men a peptalk:

For six centuries there has been a Jewish Krakow. Think about that. By thisevening, those six centuries are a rumor. They never happened. Today is history.
This scene is being repeated in the Friday sermons in mosques and on Islamic satellite TV all over the world, only this time it is the Christians in addition to the Jews who are targets. Great efforts are being made to make the two-thousand year history of Christianity in North Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia a blasphemous rumor. Soon students in Turkey will be taught that the Hagia Sophia, the greatest architectural structure in the Muslim world, wasn’t built by the Christian Emperor Justinian in the Sixth Century, but by the Sultan Mehmed II a thousand years later after the Ottomans seized the Byzantine capital. That Christians lived at all in the Muslim world, let alone that much of the territory occupied by Muslims used to be Christian lands before the Islamic Wars of Conquest, will be nothing but a rumor by the end of this century punishable according to the precepts of shari’a.

President Bush announced last week that he will be sending a special envoy to the Pr57-member Organization of Islamic Countries. Hopefully, the systematic persecution of Christians and other religious minorities will be the first and primary item in the new envoy’s portfolio, with the 2007 annual report ( ) of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom and the State Department’s Annual Report ( ) on International Religious Freedom, which name virtually every single country in the OIC for its human rights abuses and religious cleansing, as evidence for our country’s concern.

The fact remains that not a single Christian or Jew lives in peace in the Muslim world, and if it is truly our nation’s foreign policy to spread democracy around the world, this issue is the perfect topic for us to press. Back at home, raising Islam’s global war on Christianity should be the immediate response to the seemingly endless media grievance machine of radical Islam’s Western apologists. Until they begin to address the new Holocaust perpetrated in the name of Islam, their complaints and denials are nothing but bald hypocrisy.
