Islam and America
Below is a mixture of my writing and also notes and articles about Islam and America.
There is an article at FrontPage Magaznie titled .........Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Dhimmitude.
Here are some snipets from the artilce:
This weekend, as America celebrates its 233rd birthday, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an unindicted co-conspirator in the U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation prosecution, is celebrating “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Yes, the inalienable rights our Declaration of Independence calls “self-evident” are the theme of the Muslim Brotherhood-associated organization’s 46th annual convention, in Washington, DC, July 3-6, 2009.
Certainly, understanding life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as Islamic values requires creativity. No problem there. Most non-Muslims, including influential and well-respected church leaders, seem to be in an ongoing state of suspension of disbelief, as well as suspension of belief, concerning Islam. This weekend ISNA’s convention will give some Christian leaders the opportunity to display the same sort of appeasement and dhimmitude that frequently accompanies Christian-Muslim dialogue.
.... guest of the convention is Senegal’s President, Abdoulaye Wade. Wade is the chairman of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), that great bastion of human rights. The OIC is most recently known for promoting the “Defamation of Religions” resolution in the UN Commission on Human Rights. The resolution’s goal is to outlaw all criticism of Islam. Wade recently condemned the indictment of Sudan President Omar el Bashir for crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court. Wade, ever concerned about the life, liberty, and happiness of the Darfurians, assures the ICC that there is no genocide in Sudan.
A speaker in the convention’s main session is American Muslim scholar Sheikh Hamza Yusuf. Yusuf has not exactly been known for wishing America life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Among his anti-American and anti-Semitic statements, in an April 2003 FrontPage Magazine article, anonymous UCLA students reported Yusuf’s remarks at a September 9, 2001 benefit dinner for convicted cop-killer Imam Jamil Al-Amin (H. Rap Brown). Because America had been “ungrateful for the bounties of Allah” it was “facing a very terrible fate,” said Yusuf. He warned that America had “a great tribulation coming to it,” and scoffed that people were “too illiterate to read the writing on the wall.” After September 11, Yusuf himself just may have proved the U.S. government’s inability to read the writing on the wall. After moderating his own inflammatory rhetoric, he met with and became an “advisor” on Islam to President George W. Bush.
Several mainline church leaders such as Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, Mark Hanson, and former member of Congress and general secretary of the National Council of Churches, Bob Edgar, will also speak at the convention.
But by far the biggest gaggle of Christian dhimmis will be at the convention’s “Interfaith Unity Reception.” The gathering’s theme, A Common Word Between Us and You, refers to the warm and fuzzy letter sent by 138 Muslim clerics and scholars from around the world to Pope Benedict XVI and other Christian leaders in October 2007 inviting Christians to peace with Islam. Hundreds of Christian leaders (not including Benedict XVI) rushed to prostrate themselves before their Muslim pen pals with an obsequious reply. Their reply, Loving God and Neighbor Together: A Christian Response to A Common Word Between Us and You sets the standard, the double standard, that will most probably be adhered to by Christians at ISNA’s interfaith unity reception.
In their eagerness to find common ground with the Muslims the Christians marginalize themselves. Sookhdeo (Rev. Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo of the Barnabas Fund) says that “the tone of the Muslim letter is condescending, given from a position of superiority and strength,” while the Yale response is “one of abject humility, guilt, and subjugation.” He says that this “self-humbling, grateful tone” fits the “classical Islamic understanding of the role of Christians as dhimmis in the Islamic state.”
One of the most appalling aspects of Loving God and Neighbor Together is its failure to be a voice on behalf of Christians, Jews, and others .
OK ENOUGH of that before I really get sick! I wanted you to see that and see how Christians, Non Christians, Jews etc. are catering to the Muslims and their Islam. If this was a drawing or a graphic since I am very visual I tend to think in those terms, imagine every religious group on one side, and on the other side ISLAM. Now one would think that Islam would be reaching out to the others if they want to be understood. Listening to the others and showing AN OUTRAGE at what ISLAM has wrought on the entire world!!!!! DEATH AND DESTRUCTION!
But that is not the case. And it never will be. That is not a part of the agenda of Islam for not only America but the entire world. It is to be the one and only, to rule, Shira Law in every city,town and country. They count on the weakness of people in groups like the article is about to let them in, open the door and cater to their every whim of Islam.
Look at what has been happening in Michigan,with a heavy Muslim populaton. Two cities there with the call to prayer blasted out into the city for all to hear. How would you like to hear that every day? But it is happening right here in America. Shouldn't that be against the law or something, in invading ones air space of sound? If it was RAP being blasted every day from speakers I bet if people complained it would be stopped. And how much more offensie Islam is and what it stands for, yet it is allowed!!!!
A couple of days ago I posted about the Arab Festival 2009: Sharia in the USA. And showed the video of a NON Muslim going to it and just wanting to ask questions at a booth that said it was for specifically for answering questions people have about Islam. Yet another lie, it had no intention of wanting to be asked tuff questions about Islam they only wanted to use that booth to convert and when asked normal questions the Muslim security guards way over reacted. One would have thought this Arab Festival was in a Muslim land and not in the USA.
Now let's look at this, it is an article at WND titled...."Will 'legal jihad' silence online critics of Islam?". . This article is about a man named, Joe Kaufman.
Snipets from the article:
When Internet journalist Joe Kaufman wrote an article exposing terrorist connections in two American Muslim groups, he was sued by a swarm of Islamic organizations, none of which he had mentioned in his online article.
The technique is called by some "legal jihad" or "Islamist lawfare," and the Thomas More Law Center, which is representing Kaufman in the lawsuit, claims Muslim advocates are using the strategy to bully online journalists into silence.
"The lawsuit against Kaufman was funded by the Muslim Legal Fund for America. The head of that organization, Khalil Meek, admitted on a Muslim radio show that lawsuits were being filed against Kaufman and others to set an example," claims a Thomas More statement on the case. "Indeed, for the last several years, Muslim groups in the U.S. have engaged in the tactic of filing meritless lawsuits to silence any public discussion of Islamic terrorist threats."
The organizations suing Kaufman also sought to legally deny him certain legal protections granted to traditional journalists, claiming that as an Internet writer, his right to seek a quick and inexpensive dismissal of the case didn't apply.
In an unanimous decision from a three-judge panel of the Texas Second Court of Appeals, however, not only did the court rule that the Muslim organizations had no basis for claiming defamation – since Kaufman didn't name or point to them in his article – but the judges also declared that online journalists do merit the same status and legal protections that their more traditional media peers enjoy.
Though the case against Kaufman is therefore dismissed for now, the Law Center reports the seven Muslim organizations have filed an appeal, continuing their quest for, according to court documents, "injunctive relief related to Kaufman's existing and future Internet publications."
Kaufman's troubles began when he wrote an article for the online FrontPage Magazine in 2007, criticizing two Islamic groups for hosting a "Muslim Family Day" at Six Flags over Texas, a Dallas-area amusement park. The Islamic Circle of North America and the Islamic Association of North Texas, Kaufman revealed, had funneled money to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and al-Qaida.
"While using images of cartoon characters and sponsoring events at amusement parks may seem innocuous, the danger that the Islamic Circle of North America poses to the United States, Canada and others is clear," Kaufman wrote. "As a faction of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization looks to impose Islam on Western society, and as a donor to a terrorist organization, the group is a willing participant in the act of violence."
This going after anyone that states facts, whether it be a journalist or a blogger or a talk show host is something that should alarm everyone that loves our country. When Mark sent me the video you see at the top of this post, I was thinking about that Arab Festival. Sometimes things just stick in ones mind and as Islam is expanding across our country I am very afraid it will take over and with a whimper from the American people. No one wants to be harassed, or sued, threatened, and that kind of thing could be in our future more and more for taking a stand against Islam and FOR our country.
Yet another threat to point out regarding Islam and their tactics.
This is from FrontPage Magazine, it is titled "A Day In Court With CAIR". Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Dave Gaubatz, the first U.S. civilian (1811) Federal Agent deployed to Iraq in 2003. He is the owner of DG Counter-terrorism Publishing. He is currently conducting a 50 State Counter-terrorism Research Tour (CTRT).
Retired USAF in 1999. Twelve years as a Special Agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI). Prior to 11 Sept. 2001, I returned to federal service as an 1811 Federal Agent, OSI. Attended one year of Arabic language at the Foreign Service Institute (U.S. State Department, Arlington, VA). Then requested by U.S. Government to deploy to Saudi Arabia (ArAr Air Base) in Jan 2003. Subsequently deployed to Nasiriyah, Iraq upon the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Upon returning from Iraq and leaving federal service, I dedicated my life to conducting first-hand CT research to educate the public and law enforcement to the realities of Islamic Jihadists who have dedicated their lives to destroying America.
INTERVIEW DONE JULY 2, 2009
FP: Dave Gaubatz, welcome back to Frontpage Interview. You have researched issues on the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) for several years. What are your updates for us on this “civil rights” organization?
Gaubatz: Thanks Jamie. CAIR has actually just sent me a letter from the law firm of Martin F. McMahon & Associates pertaining to my upcoming attendance at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference to be held in Washington, DC, during the 4th of July holiday.
FP: What did the letter say?
Gaubatz: First let me emphasize what I have said for several years:
 It is my professional opinion that CAIR and its executives are terrorist supporters and their ‘non profit’ and IRS endorsed organization should have never been allowed to open almost 15 years ago.
 It is also my professional opinion that anyone or organization supporting CAIR or its ideology supports terrorism and are a national security threat to our country.
 A different acronym used does not change the ideology. CAIR is ISNA, ISNA is MSA, and MSA is MANA (Imam Siraj Wahhaj). These are different people representing the same ideology of an Islamic Ummah (Nation) under Sharia law.
 Many of our law enforcement executives of various agencies have lost sight of who they work for. They do not work for Saudi financed CAIR or ISNA, they work for America and its citizens.
FP: So the letter?
Gaubatz: The letter is a notice for me to cease and desist from contacting CAIR and its reps both at the ISNA convention and anytime afterwards.
FP: And your reaction?
Gaubatz: Amused would be the best description. While reading the letter it took everything I had not to laugh. Here I am reading a letter from an organization that advocates murder against innocent Israeli people and their actions put the lives of our troops in jeopardy each day, and they are calling me a ‘threat’. CAIR executives are rather amusing and ignorant. The U.S. government has officially advised this organization is an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation case and the FBI admits they have discontinued meetings with them.
I am more concerned about our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan than I am from any ‘bogus’ allegations from a terrorist supporting organization. I will pass on an attorney to represent me. I believe I have the skills to defeat any attorney who has been ‘brainwashed’ by CAIR. When you have the truth it takes very little else to scare these clowns away. I look forward to a day in court with them.
FP: Has CAIR ever threatened others you are aware of?
Gaubatz: Yes. CAIR uses this tactic often. They intimidate small companies into complying with Sharia law aspects of Islam. There are too many to mention, but a quote the attorneys of CAIR frequently use to intimidate their targets is:
“The First Amendment protects the rights of all U.S. citizens to practice religion. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….”
“CAIR has resolved a number of similar acts of discrimination and defamation involving some of America’s top corporations such as Nike, Solectron, The Los Angeles Times, JC Penny, Sears, Burger King, Office Max, Office Depot, Delta Airlines, and many others
FP: What mistakes has CAIR made?
Gaubatz: I’ll tell you its biggest mistake: it believes the First Amendment is only applicable to itself in regards to religious issues. Again this is the mentality of former CAIR executives such as Khalid Ighbal. Is Ighbal a U.S. citizen? He was involved in thousands of dollars of fraud against his own members and Muslims. Possibly an energetic agent or journalist should check this out. It is one thing to be intimidated by Americans working for CAIR, but by employees who are not U.S. citizens is another thing. And now they are trying to intimidate me, a 20 year U.S. military veteran and a man who went to war for his country in 2003, and who is willing to give his life for all regardless of race or religion. I and many veterans find this situation extremely offensive.
I find it so offensive I am asking Immigration authorities to review the workers of CAIR to determine how many are actually U.S. citizens. For a fact we know CAIR’s former Attorney Morris Days was not actually an attorney yet he tried intimidating and harassing American citizens on a daily basis in his CAIR appointed Attorney position for CAIR/VA
CAIR is doing with me what they do with anyone who begins to get too close to the truth of their relationship with Islamic terrorist organizations. They use the same tactics as Hamas or Al Qaeda. They attempt to terrorize the person, company or government into ‘backing off’ if they opine they or Islam is being ‘oppressed’. Americans must at some point come to the understanding CAIR and their supporters do represent the same ideology of Hamas and are conducting their own form of ‘Jihad’. The Jihad of CAIR is by use of the ‘pen and tongue’, which means to terrorize their target with lawsuits, threats, and through their words. The physical part (fighting) is an essential aspect of Jihad which the CAIR executives also endorse, but they leave this (currently) to others.
FP: So will you be attending the ISNA conference in DC this upcoming weekend?
Gaubatz: I will be attending the event as a professional journalist who desires to learn more about the Islamic ideology. In 2008, I was able to learn ISNA has vendors who distribute pro Hamas material advising Muslims to destroy Israel, material was distributed calling for Israel and America to be destroyed, child marriages were being advocated in the materials, and much more, yet again DHS officials will have a table next to people calling for our destruction. DHS will be attempting to recruit many of them to be U.S. federal agents. Now is there any reason Americans should not feel distressed and threatened by knowing this?
Americans have to stand up for our Constitutional Rights today. We cannot wait until tomorrow. These rights may not be there for our children if we wait.
And this H/T Atlas Shrugs for this section of information:
Dave Gaubatz attended the ISNA conference (or at least attempted to); what follows is his experience. Dave Gaubatz was the first U.S. civilian (1811) Federal Agent deployed to Iraq in 2003. He is the owner of DG Counter-terrorism Publishing. He is currently conducting a 50 State Counter-terrorism Research Tour (CTRT). He can be contacted at email@example.com.
Here is what Dave wrote:
Quick synopsis, of course more coming out later tonight/tomorrow:
1. Went to ISNA/DC to check in. I had prepaid $100.00 fee and had my registration.
2. It was apparent I was 'flagged'.
3. 8 or 9 ISNA and other men surround me.
4. They refused to tell me who they are or why they want me to leave.
5. One then said, "CAIR wants you out."
6. They began crowding me. I was professional and told them to step away from me, tell me who they are, and why was I being illegally detained.
7. I told them this could have been avoided if ISNA would have emailed me a cancellation. I told them I want my $100.00 back. Meanwhile I was asking them some tough questions they could not answer.
8. Then the group led me out of the convention; still no names of who they were.
9. I was on the street and noticed at least 3 DC patrol cars. I took pictures. Then I started walking toward my parked car. One patrol car was following me slowly. I stopped took a few pictures of him. Then walked to my car.
10. I got in my car. Three Patrol cars surrounded me and surrounded my vehicle. I was told to get out.
11. I asked what was the problem. Finally one officer showed me a picture CAIR had given them and told them I was a threat. It had four pictures. 3 were with me in Iraq with my M-16 and 9mm, and two I was holding AK-47s in Iraq. CAIR had photocopied the picture of me helping a sick iraqi child from the picture. Then CAIR had cropped my head shot onto a Nazi uniform (which was obvious).
12. The lead cop said this is all CAIR had given them. I told them about the pictures, my background in Iraq, and who I was. They knew nothing of this.
13. CAIR and ISNA had essentially tried to get me killed. The officer said they just had the holocaust shooting. CAIR intentionally misled the officers to make them believe I was just someone who carries guns. CAIR failed to tell them these were pictures from Iraq when I was serving my country.
Yes that is happening in America!!!!!!! This with Dave shows how far we have come down the path of caving in. These people have done these kinds of things in other countries and now look at those countries. Wonderful places that now are much different then they used to be and imo will never be able to go back to what they were. I loved my trips to England, there are places there, enchanting places, thatched roof homes and beautiful whimisy gardens, Pubs to chat, laugh and converse in on a rainy night. The land of Shedrlock Holmes and Dr. Watson and Winston Churchill, so many things. But now Muslims everywhere and Shira law enforced as well for Muslims in their courts.
On July 1st 2009 , Daniel Pipes wrote about this.........CAIR Distributes 100,000 Korans; Overtly Proselytizes
The Hamas-founded Council on American-Islamic Relations has long pretended to be a civil rights organization, comparing itself at times to the NAACP, but a close look at its record reveals the real CAIR agenda to be – in common with all Islamists – promoting the Shari'a. This can be achieved two ways. The more circuitous method influences American public opinion through the educational system, the media, the arts, the courts, and the political process. The more direct method converts Americans to Islam.
Today, CAIR took what is probably the most major step ever in the direction of da'wa (call to Islam) with the announcement of a "Share the Quran" campaign. It involves sending free copies of the Koran over the next six months to 100,000 leaders: "governors, state attorney generals, educators, law enforcement officials, state and national legislators, local elected and public officials, media professionals, and other local or national leaders who shape public opinion or determine policy."
Nor is that all: CAIR's national executive director Nihad Awad added that "The long-term goal of the campaign is to put one million Qurans in the hands of ordinary Americans of all faiths over the next ten years."
We have the most dangerous man in our country sitting in our Oval Office, catering to Muslims and add to that looking for and reaching out to them, putting them in his administration. making his speech in Cairo to beg and plead with them to love him and trust him and put their hope in him as a leader of their freaking Muslim WORLD.
Thank you , I realize this is long but once I started to gather the information pertaining to all of this the post it kept growing.

obama stated he was a muslim. he also stated that America was not a Christian country. These statements should terrify the average American. obama wants to bring the Gitmo detainees here. he is bringing in thousands of Hamas "refugees" from Gaza.
obama and his radical agenda and radical friends are the reason gun and ammo sales are through the roof.

Now this is going way, way, way too far! There was no reason for him to be detained or accosted. None. But get ready folks, it's coming to us sooner than we know--the brown shirted goon squads are on their way and nothing will be safe or sacred anymore.

Remember what Rhod said yesterday? That same bureaucratic loyalty to themselves exists in all levels of government. The are dependent for their existence on the whims of the incumbent president and his hand picked mafioso. It doesn't matter if in the case that Rhod illuminated it's the Pentagon or the CIA, FBI, it filters throughout all the Federal Bureaus, down to State levels. All of them have and continue to usurp the protections outlined in the United States Constitution, only one nation has had the balls to enforce theirs, it was Honduras. For honoring their Constitutional right the greatest nation ever to grace the world condemns their right to free choice. Those protectors will turn on the populace in a heartbeat at Obama's merest whisper. If we still want freedom we are going to have to fight for it all over again.
Obama is promoting Islam and Dhimmitude and they are all in lockstep as are the media.

Danny Kaye should have gotten an Emmy for his performance in 'Skokie'.
What he said, 'Not this time we are not going to pull the shades down again we will fight them with baseball bats if we have to'.
This applies to us today. The Fascist left is trying to take our freedoms away, they do it in ever so clever ways, calling it hate a crime, That usurps our freedom of speech, Guns, Private property rights all rights in the constitution they are whittling away one at a time when one day we will wake up and find we have not Rights ar all.
Yet a young fresh face like Sarah Palin comes along she scares the hell out of them and threatens their agenda, because they know that she knows what they want to do. Then the first thing they try to do is destroy her. This we cannot allow.

Tom, thank you that is soooo true.
It shocks me how few people even know
this stuff goes on. I don't know what
they do online but they are not
going to political sites, two of our
neighbors were shocked to hear about
Dearborne. We were all together for
July 4th and they voted for Sarah, but
even so they did not know even a little
of what has been going on with Islam
in our country.

Lynn, I think so too and this worries
me what will happen to the kids, so
young and if they try to force this
stuff on them in school.

Jack, thanks, I agree.
"If we still want freedom we are going to have to fight for it all over again."

Mark, when he said that line I started to
cry and even now reading it in your comment
it gave me goosebumps.
