Amazing the similarities between Ancient Rome and America

A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among th…ose within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.”

CICERO 106-43 BC

New Jersey becoming the Sharia State

New Jersey, the Garden State, has just taken its first step toward becoming the Sharia State, with Governor Christie’s nomination of Sohail Mohammed, an attorney to detained terrorist suspects, to a Superior Court judgeship in Passaic County. The Sohail nomination continues Christie’s unfortunate pandering to the American Muslim Union and the Islamic Center of Passaic County.

Passaic County has the second largest Muslim population in the country. And the Islamic Center of Passaic County is the state’s largest mosque, and it’s the only one run by an an Imam who was a member of the Hamas terrorist organization. But when the United States government attempted to deport Mohammed Qatanani, New Jersey’s pols and wannabe pols like Christie, quickly came to his aid. Despite the fact that Mohammed Qatanani was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that is behind both Al Qaeda and Hamas, despite his own guilty plea to being a member of Hamas, and despite the fact that even in the United States, he had defended a charity that provided funds to children of suicide bombers (this is done as an incentive to reassure terrorists that if they die their families will be taken care of), Qatanani was not deported.

The pioneering terrorism researcher, Steve Emerson called it, “a disgrace and an act of pure political corruption”. He stated, “I know for certain that Christie and the FBI SAC had access to information about Qatanani’s background, involvement with and support of Hamas.” Defending Qatanani required Christie to pit himself against the Department of Homeland Security, which wanted him deported. But the Department of Homeland Security wasn’t running for office in New Jersey. Christie was.

The first Imam of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, Mohammad El-Mezain, was convicted of funneling money to Hamas. El-Mezain had actually boasted of raising almost 2 million dollars for Hamas. And his replacement, Qatanani, actually was a member of Hamas. An ordinary politician might have been forgiven for not knowing this, but Christie was the US Attorney for New Jersey. It’s absolutely impossible that he would not have known the background of the Islamic Center of Passaic County. Yet Christie attended a Ramadan dinner, in the same place where terrorists had fundraised, and kissed Qatanani on the cheek.

Now Christie has nominated Sohail Mohammed, Qatanan’s former lawyer, to a Superior Court judgeship. Sohail Mohammed is a board member of the American Muslim Union, an organization that has interlocking leadership with groups that have fundraised for Hamas and hosted a Hamas speaker. The American Muslim Union is closely interlinked with Qatanani’s Islamic Center of Passaic County.

Sohail Mohammed defended suspected terrorist detainees and was the go-to man for local and national media looking for a good quote. He lobbied against the use of both ‘Islamic’ in descriptions of Islamic terrorists, condemned the television show 24 for depicting Muslim terrorists and made an appearance outside the Qatanani trial. After the massacre of a Coptic Christian family, Sohail Mohammed tried to have some Copts investigated for opposing Muslim attendance at their funeral. And most importantly, Sohail Mohammed was Qatanani’s original lawyer when the government began its case against him.

So after helping Mohammed Qatanani escape deportation, Christie then nominated his lawyer to a Superior Court judgeship. Sohail is the second Muslim Superior Court judge in New Jersey after Hany Mawla. And if you want a preview of New Jersey’s future, you can see it in Judge Hany Mawla conducting the swearing in ceremony for Mayor Mohamed T. Khairullah in Passaic County’s Prospect Park borough. And the opening prayer for the event is delivered by none other than Imam Qatanani, leading a prayer in the name of Allah.

There’s still an American flag in place and the pledge of allegiance is recited, but those are symbols masking the hijacking taking place underneath the red, white and blue.

Some might compare the situation in Passaic County to France with its “no go zones” where the local authorities and non-Muslims cannot enter, but it’s actually a good deal worse. The government and the judiciary is being taken over, small pieces of Muslim ruled territory are being carved out and expanded with the support of the state’s leading politicians, who trade political support and campaign contributions for something dangerously close to treason. It’s not just New Jersey. America is being carved up this way, piece by piece…

Islamic Countries Dominate Open Doors 2011 World Watch List

Islamic Countries Dominate Open Doors 2011 World Watch List

SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 5, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — Despite Communist North Korea topping the annual Open Doors World Watch List (WWL) for the ninth consecutive year, the most dangerous countries in which to practice Christianity are overwhelmingly Islamic ones.

That paragraph should be printed on a little business card, convenient for us to hand out to Christian appeasers who fantasize that our friends in the henna beards are either

1. Victims of racism, poverty, and social exclusion (liberal Christian dhimmis)
2. Enraged by American policies and Zionist oppression (ultra-leftist and ultra-rightists) or
3. Our future allies in the war against the hedonist Culture of Death (frustrated theocrats sunk in impotent rage).

Perhaps on the other side of the card we can print the following sura from the Qur’an:

9:29. Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

The texts would fit very nicely, and the bottom of each side could read: “To learn more, visit Jihadwatch.org. Or visit Saudi Arabia and try to find a church or synagogue.”

In case people have further questions, it might be handy to have, in leaflet form–or loaded on your Blackberry or iPhone–the text of the Pact of Umar, the model for the “toleration” sharia–an intrinsic part of Islam that every major Muslim group, including CAIR and ISNA endorses–grants Christians once it’s in force. Again, it’s a short, informative text.

The Pact of Umar

(promises conquered Christians make in return for Muslim protection):
* We shall not build, in our cities or in their neighborhood, new monasteries, churches, convents, or monks’ cells, nor shall we repair, by day or by night, such of them as fall in ruins or are situated in the quarters of the Muslims.

* We shall keep our gates wide open for passersby and travelers. We shall give board and lodging to all Muslims who pass our way for three days.

* We shall not give shelter in our churches or in our dwellings to any spy, nor bide him from the Muslims.

* We shall not teach the Qur’an to our children.

* We shall not manifest our religion publicly nor convert anyone to it. We shall not prevent any of our kin from entering Islam if they wish it.

* We shall show respect toward the Muslims, and we shall rise from our seats when they wish to sit.

* We shall not seek to resemble the Muslims by imitating any of their garments, the qalansuwa, the turban, footwear, or the parting of the hair. We shall not speak as they do, nor shall we adopt their kunyas.

* We shall not mount on saddles, nor shall we gird swords nor bear any kind of arms nor carry them on our persons.

* We shall not engrave Arabic inscriptions on our seals.

* We shall not sell fermented drinks.

* We shall clip the fronts of our heads.

* We shall always dress in the same way wherever we may be, and we shall bind the zunar round our waists

* We shall not display our crosses or our books in the roads or markets of the Muslims. We shall use only clappers in our churches very softly. We shall not raise our voices when following our dead. We shall not show lights on any of the roads of the Muslims or in their markets. We shall not bury our dead near the Muslims.

* We shall not take slaves who have been allotted to Muslims.

* We shall not build houses overtopping the houses of the Muslims.

* (When I brought the letter to Umar, may God be pleased with him, he added, “We shall not strike a Muslim.”)

* We accept these conditions for ourselves and for the people of our community, and in return we receive safe-conduct.

* If we in any way violate these undertakings for which we ourselves stand surety, we forfeit our covenant [dhimma], and we become liable to the penalties for contumacy and sedition. [That penalty is death--ed.]

Given the primary sources they’re working from, the text of the divine “Revelation” they follow, and the normative historical exemplars they imitate, modern Muslims across the world are doing a much better job of living up to their religion than most Christians are–as the Open Doors report demonstrates:

Of the top 10 countries on the 2011 WWL, eight have Islamic majorities. Persecution has increased in seven of them. They are Iran, which clamps down on a growing house church movement; Afghanistan, where thousands of believers cluster deep underground; and Saudi Arabia, which still refuses to allow any Saudi person to convert to Christianity.

Others are lawless Somalia, ruled by bloodthirsty terrorists threatening to kill Christian aid workers who feed Somalia’s starving, impoverished people; tiny Maldives, which mistakenly boasts it is 100 percent Islamic; Yemen with its determination to expel all Christian workers; and Iraq, which saw extremists massacre 58 Christians in a Baghdad cathedral on Oct. 31. Of the top 30 countries, only seven have a source other than Islamic extremists as the main persecutors of Christians.

The top 10 in order are North Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Maldives, Yemen, Iraq, Uzbekistan and Laos, which has a Communist government. Iraq is new to the top 10 list while Mauritania dropped out, going from No. 8 to No. 13.

The country that saw the greatest deterioration of Christian religious freedom in the reporting period from Nov. 1, 2009, through Oct. 31, 2010, was Iraq, jumping from No. 17 to No. 8. The country has seen a Christian exodus in recent years, with an estimated 334,000 Christians remaining in this ancient cradle of Christianity, a drop of more than 50 percent since the 2003 toppling of Saddam Hussein’s regime. The main reason why Christians are fleeing is organized violence by an extremist militia, especially in the northern city of Mosul and in the capital Baghdad, in an attempt to cleanse these areas of its Christian presence. At least 90 Christians were martyred last year in Iraq while hundreds more were injured in bomb and gun attacks. More killings have taken place in the past two weeks. [Mission accomplished, GWB!]

The country with the largest Christian community on the WWL’s top 15 is Pakistan with more than 5 million believers. Pakistani Christians also faced a sharp erosion of their religious liberty with the country leaping from No. 14 to No. 11 on the current list. Twenty-nine Christians were martyred in the reporting period with at least one killing occurring every month. Four Christians were sentenced to long terms in jail for blasphemy against Islam, at least 58 Christians were kidnapped, more than 100 Christians were assaulted and 14 churches and properties were damaged.

Other countries that rose markedly on the new WWL were Afghanistan, up from No. 6 to No. 3, especially in the wake of ugly demonstrations when footage of Muslims being baptized was shown on network television. Dozens of Christians from the tiny Afghan church have had to move due to subsequent death threats, and in August a 10-person medical aid team from a Christian organization was slaughtered. [Nice work, President Obama. The "surge" is working!]

The year’s grisliest headlines were found in No. 26 Nigeria, however, where a staggering 2,000 Christians lost their lives in riots caused by Muslim extremists in some of the northern states in the country. Tension has been growing for more than a generation in northern Nigeria, and escalated after 1999 when 12 northern states adopted Sharia (strict Islamic law). On Christmas Eve Compass Direct News reported the killing of a Baptist pastor and five other Christians in northern Nigeria. More killings of Christians were also reported in the last two weeks. [Christianity is the white man's religion; Islam brings equality and justice. But which religion is it that's killing the most black people every year?]

Egypt is ranked No. 19 on the WWL and could be a focus of persecution this year as 21 Christians were killed in a bomb blast on New Year’s Day outside the Church of Two Saints in Alexandria. [Pope Benedict, stop interfering. We've got the situation under control.]

At this point in the discussion, it’s worth stepping back and remembering what “dhimmitude” denotes. It means “protection,” and now we know in what sense that word is meant: in the sense of protection racket. When the Westies used to barge into bars in my mother’s old neighborhood, Hell’s Kitchen, and offer “protection” to the owners, it was clear to everyone involved from whom the hapless businessmen were being protected: from the Westies. Given the many ways in which Muhammad, once he arrived in Medina and came to power, acted like a gangster, it’s no surprise that his followers continue to carry on like a gang of thugs. When Islamic apologists insist that any discussion of Islam’s crimes against “unbelievers” of every creed or none is hateful Islamophobia, it’s best to remember how Mafia lawyers used to rant about ethnic stereotypes–typically as they addressed a jury, defending some “mook” who’d shot his cousin in the back of the head. Then they’d go home, open a jug of Gallo red, and watch The Sopranos. I wonder if Reza Aslan and Ibrahim Hooper, after a long, hard day of lying, stoke up the shisha and kick back to enjoy the video footage from Alexandria and Baghdad….

My View From Here

ORIGINALLY POSTED AS COMMENT TO SON’S FACEBOOK POSTING

As a patriotic American concerned with the future of my country, I’m less worried about the idiots trying to get into office than where we are heading. The Chinese are lending us money to finance our debt we can’t pay so we can by more stuff from them and for oil, while the Islamic stealth jihad slowly gets Sharia Law replacing both our Constitutional freedoms and eliminating our freedoms. And our government, DEMS and REP both allowing these travesties.

Palin is mental inferior and not qualified for election for dog catcher. And before anyone starts screaming liberal, I’m not. I’m a thinking American. And, my choice for someone with the intelligence and integrity to be MY president, it is Mitt Romney.

If anyone REALLY wants to know where we are heading on the course George and Barack have set us on, watch the Glenn Beck show. He will tell you the truth and it will make you mad, especially if you are like most Americans, head firmly stuck in the sand (or some other place not polite to mention).

And if you really want some truth that will make you unhappy or enlightened, depending on how well you can handle reality, you are welcome to go to paulmarcelrene.wordpress.com
