News You May Have Missed

Islamic Jihad Movement


As Islamic Jihad, including its “stealth” variety, is rapidly succeeding in destroying our civilization, the Left continues its shameless and bizarre denial — not only about the threat of Islamic Jihad, but also about its own complicity with our enemy and its war on our society.The latest example of the Left’s Jihad-Denial concerns me personally: it involves an intriguing post, written by Brian Tashman in, titled: Beware: Human-Hating Liberals and Islamic Extremists Seek to Build Shariommunism. The post ridicules my recent appearance on CBN’s “Stackelbeck on Terror” in which I discuss the Unholy Alliance between the radical Left and radical Islam, which happens to be the main field of my life’s work and which I crystallized in my book, United in Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror.

Operation Pillar of Defense (of Israel)

See on Scoop.itTruth Revealed

As you no doubt know, yesterday Israel launched Operation Pillar of Defense — a purely defensive operation designed to stop rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israel. And as you also know, too many voices in the media and across the country are focusing on Israel’s strikes while ignoring the context which necessitated them. This means that all of us must now become Israel’s ambassadors and explain to our family, friends and neighbors why Israel has the right — and the responsibility — to defend its citizens.

Israel needs you. And you need the facts:

• In the week preceding the launch of yesterday’s operation, over 120 missile were fired from Gaza into southern Israel.

• Since the beginning of 2012, over 760 rockets have been launched from Gaza into Israel’s southern communities.

• Since Israel launched this operation yesterday, an additional 245 rockets have been fired into Israel, killing three Israelis and injuring many more.

• These rockets target Israeli civilians, and have forced over one million Israelis into bomb shelters.

• In recent years, Hamas has acquired an arsenal of long range Fajr-5 missiles from Iran capable of hitting Tel Aviv and now two rockets have landed in the outskirts of Tel Aviv.

• Operation Pillar of Defense is a limited operation targeting Hamas’ missile stockpiles and the Hamas terrorists responsible for firing them.

Every nation on earth has the right to defend its citizens from attacks. Most nations would have taken action after one or two missiles were fired into their territory. Israel has once again exercised enormous restraint and waited until over 760 rockets had been fired into its territory before launching Operation Pillar of Defense.

As always, Israel is targeting Hamas’ missiles and the terrorists who fire them while taking every reasonable precaution to avoid harming Palestinian civilians. By contrast, Hamas and its allies are specifically targeting Israeli civilians, while hiding behind Palestinian civilians. There is no moral equivalence in this fight.

Fool Me Twice Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed

The New York Times bestselling book by Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed”

It’s frightening what this book reveals about Obama’s REAL plans for going FO

RWARD. The President’s unexplained “economic fairness” policy is socialistic in nature, and will propel the United States into a socialistic society, so the book indicates. However, after reviewing some of the revelations brought forth by the book, it looks like Obama is leading America to a total dictatorship with governmental (White House) control of private companies and throwing the US military under the bus by giving it to the UN, thereby avoiding a military coup.

Among the second-term Obama policies detailed in the book:
• A new, expansive amnesty program for illegal immigrants which will be done by Executive Order and inter-agency directives, to open the Mexican border floodgates and allow all illegal immigration into the country. This will be abetted by the reduction of US Border Agents and the removal of caps on H-1B visas and green cards.(EDITOR’S NOTE: An excellent opportunity for Islamist jihadists which have been recruited in the Central American countries, to slip across the border and conduct terror attacks.)

• Government-funded, neighborhood-based programs to better integrate the newly amnestied immigrants into society, including education centers and health-care centers. A “federal solution” to ensure that the amnestied immigrants are treated “equitably” across the United States. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Get out your checkbooks, American Citizens. You’re about to be zapped again to support illegals who take our jobs or subsist on our federal aide programs for American Citizen poor.)

• Obama will re-create FDR’s Works Progress Administration program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new federal jobs; mostly for the illegal immigrants.

• Specific plans for a National Infrastructure Bank. This entity would “evaluate and finance infrastructure projects ‘of substantial regional and national importance’” and would finance “transportation infrastructure, housing, energy, telecommunications, drinking water, wastewater, and other infrastructures.”

• SEIG HEIL!!! Wresting control of the military budget from Congress by attempting to place an “independent panel” in charge of military spending while slashing the defense budget in shocking ways. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Isn’t this akin to overthrowing the military? Also, Obama stated during his campaign that it was his intention to create a non-military civilian militia which would be loyal and dedicated to Obama. This is reminiscient of the Nazi SS, the Russian KGB, Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Qaeda, etc.)

• The vastly reduced resources of the U.S. armed forces will be spread even thinner by using them to combat “global warming,” fight global poverty, remedy “injustice,” bolster the United Nations and step up use of “peacekeeping” deployments. (EDITOR’S NOTE: i.e., Obama will hand the American military over to the United Nations for it to do with the US military as it pleases.)
• A new “green” stimulus program and the founding of a federal “green” bank or “Energy Independence Trust,” which would BORROW from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in “clean energy.” (EDITOR’S NOTE: i.e., the Social Security Fund and Medicare are in trouble again unless Obama borrows from China as he has continually done in the past).

• Detailed plans to nudge closer to a single-payer health-care system controlled by the federal government. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Obamacare totally implemented and controlled by Obama. This includes Death Panels which would euthanize those American Citizens 70 years old and older.)

• Federal government intervention to determine the “value” of individual jobs in the private sector instead of allowing employers to pay what they want. (EDITOR’S NOTE: The demise of free enterprise. Obama will tell private companies what they must pay their employees which means governmental takeover of private companies. Do we see a dictatorship in the US’s future?)

• The enactment of a “living wage” that would force all employers to increase the salaries of the nation’s workers to meet “basic needs” such as housing, food, utilities, transportation, health care and recreation. (EDITOR’S NOTE: Again, government takeover of business and industry. American Citizens earning high wages will have their wages cut even though they worked hard and paid their dues to advance in their careers.)

Facebook Adopts Sharia

FULL ARTICLE HERE: Facebook Adopts Sharia































Greetings my fellow infidels.  It is my sad duty to inform you that Facebook has adopted sharia.  A bold claim to be sure, so here is the proof.   

Obama says “respect it!”  And Facebook says “don’t criticize it!”  What is the ‘it’ in question?!  It is sharia, the legal system associated with islam, a totalitarian political ideology disguised as a religion. 

One of the tenets of islam is that criticism of islam, mohammed and sharia itself are prohibited.

Sleeper Cells in the USA

Sleeper Cells in the USA.

I highly recommend this book that clearly explains the truth about the threat of Islam to the USA and what to do to defend her from Islamization of America. It is written by one of the true patriots alive today and she does not sugar coat the truth!


Today Islamic supremacists are demanding more accommodation of Islamic principles and practices than ever, and daily growing more aggressive in eroding our freedoms—with politically correct public officials only too happy to oblige them. Speaking from the fruit of her experience as the national leader of the fight against the Ground Zero mega-mosque and numerous other initiatives, Geller’s guidebook provides a much-needed wake-up call about a sinister agenda that could do nothing less than destroy the United States – with unique instructions about how we can, and must, fight back now to defend our nation and civilization.

Packed with current information drawn from Geller’s front-line experience in the struggle against Islamist organizations and creeping Shariah in the United States, Stop the Islamization of America is an indispensable guidebook for everyone committed to defending American liberty.

Here is just a small sampling of what you’ll find in this book:

Startling new information about the full extent of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the Department of Justice, and its brazen pro-Muslim activities, including its “Monthly Outreach Meetings” with Muslim and Arab groups at the Civil Rights Division — and the 14,000 documents the DOJ won’t release that reveal the full, shocking extent of this cooperation.
A primer for protest against Islamic supremacist mosques and other initiatives in your local area.
A primer for how freedom fighters can deal with an adversarial media.
The shocking details of the travesty that is the 9/11 victims memorial, which is planning to put the unidentified remains of 9/11 victims seven stories underground inside a museum that charges admission — and which will include lavish profiles (above ground, of course) of the 9/11 hijackers.
The Sheepshead Bay mosque initiative and other mega-mosque initiatives nationwide: the sinister forces behind them and their insidious agenda.
Never-before-released details of the Islamic honor murders of the Texas teenagers Amina and Sarah Said.
The American Bar Association’s coverup of its work to resist anti-Sharia initiatives.
The Islamic schools that receive public money.
The truth behind Virginia’s failing to mail military ballots in time for them to be counted in the election of 2008.
Links between the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division and the Islamic Society of North America, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, and the Muslim Students Association.
Praise for Stop the Islamization of America:

The First Amendment’s free-speech guarantee is central to America’s character and our fundamental liberties. Equally important, and stemming from the same philosophical roots, is the Amendment’s twinned protection of religious freedom and its prohibition of establishing religion. These pillars of liberty are under attack around the world, and even here in America. If you want to preserve the Constitution, read this book. — John Bolton, former US Ambassador to the United Nations, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and author of Surrender Is Not an Option: Defending America at the United Nations.

Americans are searching for ways to get involved in stopping the encroachment of Shariah law on the US Constitution and the takeover of our nation by the Muslim Brotherhood. Pamela Geller provides practical steps for every American to get involved in stopping the attack on our nation by the forces of evil. I hope that every concerned American reads and heads this book. — Lt. General Jerry Boykin, former United States Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence. He has played a role in almost every recent major American military operation, serving in Grenada, Somalia, Iraq, Author, Never Surrender: A Soldier’s Journey to The Crossroads of Faith and Freedom.

This book fills an urgent need. Pamela Geller has brought together all her experience fighting the stealth jihad and Islamization to create the first practical guide to stopping the spread of Sharia and Islamic supremacism in America. Every patriot, everyone who loves the freedom we enjoy in America, must get this book and use it to equip themselves for the great struggle that lies ahead. — Dr. Wafa Sultan, former Muslim and author, A God Who Hates.

Among Westerners dedicated to human rights, freedom of speech and religion, Geller is a forceful and courageous voice, providing in this powerful book a democratic defense to fight the stealth jihadist threat against civilization. — Bat Ye’or, eminent historian, author of eight books including Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis, Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide, The Decline of Eastern Christianity: From Jihad to Dhimmitude, and The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians Under Islam.

Only Pamela Geller could have written this book. She has stood on the front lines against Islamic supremacism and Sharia encroachment with unparalleled courage and insight, formulating unique and innovative strategies to put the enemies of freedom on the defensive and fight effectively for human rights. The wisdom she has gleaned from her experience is all here, making this an essential handbook for every freedom fighter. — Robert Spencer, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad.

Pamela Geller is the founder, editor, and publisher of She is the executive director of Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), as well as the Freedom Defense Initiative (FDI), and is a regular columnist for WND, the American Thinker, Human Events, and other publications.

Patriotic Texas Gun Instructor: All Muslims Have ‘Sworn The Annihilation Of The United States’

In an interview with the New York Times, a state-certified gun instructor in Texas stood up as a Patriotic American and restated that he refused to teach Muslims, telling local news outlets and advocacy groups, “I would give up my license to teach before I will teach them,” because he considered all Muslims “enemies.”

Keller, who, as the Times reporter approached him, put his hand on his holstered sidearm because, he said, of death threats, told the newspaper:

Why would I teach people who have sworn the annihilation of the United States and who can lie, cheat, steal and murder Americans in order to further Islam? Why would I arm someone like that? Why would I enable them to carry a weapon legally? I don’t want to be a part of that. […]

I don’t care what your religion, what your creed is. That makes no bearing. Butwhen people consider themselves a particular religion that has proven itself to be anti-American, well, then, I’m anti-them.

The Texas Public Safety Board, which regulates gun instructors, launched an investigation and said in a statement that an instructor who “denied service to individuals on the basis of race, ethnicity or religion would place that instructor’s certification by the department at risk of suspension or revocation.”

Throughout all his interviews with the media, Keller has made no distinction between ACTIVE militant Muslims and the faith at large that supports in FULL the actions of the ACTIVE Islamic Jihadists.

Of more than a billion Muslims worldwide, up to about seven million live in the United States. “[I]f you are a devout Muslim, how can you pledge allegiance to the United States of America? You can’t,” Keller said. “The ideologies are diametrically opposed.

Of course, he is correct.  But the comments on this Dhimmi site show just how much trouble the USA is in when not one comment supported his act of Patriotism!

All I can say is:  Good for him. He is 100% correct. Anyone who doesn’t understand the threat of Islam and that ALL Islam is radical and violent just doesn’t know the truth.

I posted this in response to the biased dhimmi article:

Wow, just read everyone’s comments. Didn’t see even one person who understands Islam. This country really IS in trouble. Americans stopped paying attention and the destructive Marxist ideologies crept into the nation. Socialism then destroyed the intellect of millions, leaving them mindless beasts of pure emotion. Over time, the ever increasing demands of the beasts pushed America toward financial ruin. Along came the Muslims, who happily capitalized on the mindless beasts. They attacked, infiltrated, subverted, and helped the beasts push America to the brink of total meltdown. Here is one place to start to learn the truth: or or”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is given little credit for what he’s done to advance prospects for peace and Palestinian development — the ten-month settlement freeze, the lifting of blockades and checkpoints on the West Bank, oft-expressed support for a two-state outcome, and help for the rising Palestinian economy.

by Mark Hughes

The War on Terrorism is actually World War IV. Most people don’t appreciate this because of the asymmetrical nature of this war. Nation states are pitted against terrorist organizations and not against other states like in previous World Wars.

In a way, asymmetrical warfare is more dangerous because the enemy could be living amongst us. These men are eager to die so as to be rewarded with Paradise with its carnal pleasures. This is so unlike World War III (i.e. the Cold War) where the free world fought the repressive communists.

They wanted to live and can be deterred by Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). Now we are fighting a bunch of medieval mad men who are not afraid of MAD. What if they get hold of a nuclear device? There are loose nukes in the former Soviet Union. Pakistan has nukes and also plenty of terrorists and their supporters.

The Leader of N Korea is unpredictable and may sell his nukes (he claims to have them) to terrorists. It would not be difficult for a terrorist to smuggle a nuke or two into any western country with their porous borders. If drug smugglers can bring in drugs by the tons, why can’t terrorists bring in a dozen or more nukes?

But there are also similarities with earlier World Wars. The chief similarity is that WW4 like WW3 (i.e. the Cold War) has an ideological component. In their own respective ideologies, both sides think that they are the good guys. On the one side are the people who believe that democracy with all its accompanying civil liberties is the best way for human beings to organize their societies.

The other side spits at democracy and aims for the world to be ruled in accordance to Allah’s laws. Democracy means that man is supreme because it is man who makes the laws through elections. The other side believes that it is God who must be supreme in the world.

It is Allah’s laws that must be obeyed and these laws were revealed to their Prophet 1,400 years ago. These militants believe that the world is divided into darul Harb and darul Islam. It is the duty of good Muslims to fight till the whole world becomes darul Islam. Allow me to call this ideology Islamism. For a more detailed insight into the roots of Islamic militancy, please read my article, “Looking for Saladdin”.

In World War III (ie the Cold War), there was also an ideological component. The Communists/Marxists preached an ideology of equality and class struggle to create a Communist utopia. This too had strong appeal for many people in the world. The US and its allies did its best to prove that this is false and tried to show why their vision of the future is better.

But in World War IV, the US has abandoned ideological warfare.
But the boundary between Islam and Islamism is fuzzy. Most Muslims are not militants and most disapprove of the terrorist tactics pursued by the militants. But the teachings of Islam make it difficult for the moderate Muslims to wage war against the terrorists. It should be clear to a casual observer that the majority of Muslims will instinctively rally to support fellow Muslims when they come under attack no matter how unworthy or how violent these Muslims are. Thus when the US attacked Afghanistan, which was ruled by the brutal Taleban, Muslims all over the world protested. The same thing happened when Iraq was attacked.

Saddam Hussein killed more fellow Muslims than archenemy Israel did, yet many Muslims volunteered to fight for him against Coalition forces. Have you wondered why there was hardly a peep from the Muslim world when Saddam slaughtered fellow Muslims? If Christians were like them, the US would not have interfered in Yugoslavia to save Muslim Bosnians from Christian Serbs.

No doubt Muslim anger over the two wars will swell the ranks of Islamic terrorist organizations. They prefer a fellow Muslim (no matter how bad) to an infidel (no matter how good). The behavior of Muslims can be explained by the teachings of Islam, which puts Muslim brotherhood higher than what is right or wrong. Also, the Koran is peppered with verses like this one, which encourages enmity against infidels:

“Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends. They are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship shall become one of their number. God does not guide the wrongdoers.” See Koran 5:51.

The best way to understand Islam is to view it as a warrior’s faith designed to support Arab imperialism in the 7th, 8th and 9th centuries. That is why apostasy ranks so high as an offence and worthy of the death penalty. They see it as a defection to the enemy.

That is also why they reflexively support monsters like Saddam in the Gulf War II and are so ready to believe the most preposterous conspiracy theories. To them, a Muslim in any confrontation with infidels can do no wrong and must be supported. Thus, even the moderates cannot be counted on to support the forces of democracy in World War IV.

Islam also teaches Muslims to see themselves as part of a nation of Muslims who happen to live in different countries – even in non-Muslim ones. Their loyalty to the nation state is subordinated to the loyalty to the Ummah. This is so even if they are second or third generation British or American or whatever. Each new generation will be taught by Islam to maintain its primary loyalty to the Ummah. Even new converts switch loyalty.

See what happened to Walker, the American Taleban and that Sergeant in the 101st Airborne. Thus Muslims living in non-Muslim countries are a potential fifth column. (But they are not the only fifth column. The left wing in US and Europe with their PC (politically correct) ideology is also giving aid and comfort to the enemy just as they did in the Cold War.)

In World War IV, the US has handicapped itself by making false declarations such as “Islam is peace”. All world wars have at least three components – the military, ideological and the economic. In World War III, the ideological component was more important than the military one. In World War I and II, it was the military component that was more important. Yet by praising Islam, Bush and Blair have already given up the ideological warfare without firing a shot.

You cannot defeat Islamism without defeating Islam. It is like trying to fight Communism while praising Marxist economic theories! In the Cold War, the US and its allies did not hesitate to argue that Marxism is a false ideology. Marx’s ideas are wrong and cannot lead mankind to a better future. The democratic world must make the same case against Islam.

Otherwise, we cannot win without relying heavily on the military component, which means more bloodshed. Perhaps we cannot win at all. Remember what Sun Wu said in his classic, “The Art of War”. The side with the higher moral standing is more likely to win. To do this, a leader must convince his people that their cause is just. You cannot persuade your people to make exertions if they do not understand what they are up against. Thus the burden of ideological warfare falls on groups like FFI.

FFI people are a special breed. They are the “irregulars” in this ideological war. The “regulars” of course refer those soldiers in uniforms funded by taxpayer’s money. “Irregulars” refer to fighters that sprang up from the grassroots like the minutemen in the US Revolutionary War against Britain or the Spanish guerrillas that fought Napoleon.

Our weapon is the pen and not the sword. But we must get the message out to both Muslims and non-Muslims. The Soviet Union imploded because the people there realized that Communism does not work. The Voice of America, BBC and others understood the nature of the beast and brought the message home to the Communist bloc. We must do the same for Islam. We must convince Muslims that Islam is false just as Communism was false. Both cannot give mankind a better future.

If we fail, WW4 could turn out to be a “hot” war like WW2 and not a relatively bloodless war like the Cold War. Nobody wants that. What would happen if a Muslim terrorist group gets hold of a nuclear device and destroys New York City? I think the US will retaliate by destroying Mecca because Islam cannot survive the destruction of Mecca.

The city is so central to their faith. Without Mecca, a Muslim cannot practice the Haj – one of the five pillars of Islam. Muslims are also required to pray five times a day facing Mecca. But praying five times a day to radioactive rubble somehow seems meaningless. They will question why Allah did not save the city with his angels and the loss of faith would be sudden. There is a precedent of sorts for this.

In the WW2, the Japanese believed their Emperor to be a God. They were even afraid to look at him lest they be blinded. So they turned their eyes away whenever he passed by in his motorcade. They also believed themselves to be descended from Gods and so are invincible. As what General Yamashita told a defeated British General after the fall of Singapore, “We are descended from the Gods. You are descended from monkeys. In a war between Gods and monkeys, the Gods will win.”

Perhaps it was their beliefs that gave them the courage to attack the US even though the US economy was 15 times the size of Japan’s at that time. All these beliefs quickly crumbled when Japan was defeated and occupied. Today, no Japanese believes that their Emperor is a God. Of course I don’t want to see any city getting nuked. Belief in Communism as a superior system crumbled without recourse to nuclear war. Islam may do the same if the message goes out to the Muslims in time.

The third component of WW4 is economics. Oil is the only major commodity produced in the Muslim world. But it is a very essential item. Islamic radicalism started to rise after the 1973 oil embargo where oil prices quadrupled overnight. The wealthy Saudis began to spread their intolerant version of Islam by building Madrassahs and mosques around the world.

Oil production is expected to peak sometime in the next 5 to 25 years. When oil peaks, oil prices will rise sharply unless we find a replacement. Also the Gulf States will account for a larger percentage of world production – putting the world in a precarious situation. World War IV can be won if we learn a lesson from World War I.

In WW1, the British took a gamble and converted their navy to run on oil even though Britain did not produce oil. The German High Seas fleet was mainly a coal burning fleet. Oil made the British ships faster, had greater range and more quickly refueled. In 1916, the two navies met at the Battle of Jutland and the British won. The North Sea was under British control for the remainder of the war. To win WW4, we must find a replacement for oil just as the British replaced coal with oil.

Bush is trying to lessen dependence on Saudi oil by liberating Iraqi oil. But in the long run, we need alternate source of energy.

In the First World War, the free world fought against Royal dictators. In the Second World War, the democracies fought against Fascist right wing dictators. In the Cold War, the free world struggled against Communist dictators. Now in World War IV, freedom is again under threat from would be Islamist dictators. Victory would depend on how well we learn the lessons from the previous World Wars.
