The Muslim Takeover of the West: How it Works

Cross posted from ACT

Note from Radarsite: For anyone who may still have lingering doubts about the real danger of the Muslim onslaught of the West, this may be the most revealing analysis of the threat of the Islamic Jihad that you will ever read. The reasoning is impeccable and the conclusions reached are both obvious and startling.

"Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel." -- Leon Uris, "The Haj"

Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.
Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called "religious rights."

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to "the reasonable" Muslim demands for their "religious rights," they also get the other components under the table. Here's how it works -- percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007).

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States -- Muslim 1.0%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1%-2%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5% Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris -- car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam -- Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%
Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam" -- the Islamic House of Peace -- there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

"Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel." -- Leon Uris, "The Haj"
It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

The Source of the Scourge

Expert: Saudis have radicalized 80% of US mosques

Cross posted from THE JERUSALEM POST

Haviv Rettig ,

Mainstream US Muslim organizations are heavily influenced by Saudi-funded extremists, according to Yehudit Barsky, an expert on terrorism at the American Jewish Committee.

Worse still, Barsky told The Jerusalem Post last week, these "extremist organizations continue to claim the mantle of leadership" over American Islam.
The power of the extremist Wahhabi form of Islam in the United States was created with generous Saudi financing of American Muslim communities over the past few decades. Over 80 percent of the mosques in the United States "have been radicalized by Saudi money and influence," Barsky said.

Before the 1970s, she explained, "Muslim immigrants who came to the United States would build a store-front mosque somewhere. Then, since the 1970s, the Saudis have been approaching these mosques and telling them it wasn't proper for the glory of Islam to build such small mosques."

For many Muslims, it seemed the Saudis were offering a free mosque. However, Barsky believes for each mosque they invested in, the Saudis sent along their own imam (teacher-cleric).

"These [immigrants] were not interested in this [Wahhabi] ideology, and suddenly they have a Saudi imam coming in and telling them they're not praying properly and not practicing Shari'a [Islamic law] properly." This Saudi strategy was being carried out "all over the world, from America to Bangladesh," with the Saudis investing $70-80 billion in the endeavor over three decades.

Barsky, who heads the AJC's Division on Middle East and International Terrorism and is the executive editor of Counterterrorism Watch, said this means that "the people now in control of teaching religion [to American Muslims] are extremists. Who teaches the mainstream moderate non-Saudi Islam that people used to have? It's in the homes, but there's no infrastructure. Eighty percent of the infrastructure is controlled by these extremists."

The same is true, Barsky said, of many of the mainstream Muslim organizations in America. Many of them are "pro-Saudi and pro-Muslim Brotherhood organizations."
As examples, she listed three important groups: the Islamic Society of North America, which "supports the Muslim Brotherhood and the Saudi regime;" the Islamic Circle of North America, which "is composed of members of Jamaat e-Islami, a Pakistani Islamic radical organization similar to the Muslim Brotherhood that helped to establish the Taliban;" and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), "founded in the 1980s by pro-Hamas activists."

The problem is most acute when it comes to interfaith relations. When advising colleagues on interfaith work with their Muslim counterparts, Barsky tells them "to proceed with caution, [since] some of the [extremist] organizations have concluded that interfaith dialogue is a good way to spread the ideology."
Indeed, despite instructions given in Saudi embassy literature - and available in many mosques throughout the country - which blast Jewish and Christian "corruption and immorality" and teach Muslims that "the only way to survive is to have no contact with the infidel Christians and Jews," these organizations reach out to Jews and Christians.

Barsky explained that interfaith dialogue gives such organizations a public legitimacy that their ideology would deny them if they expressed it outright.
"So there's a problem," Barsky concluded, "with knowing who these people are, who is really moderate. [These organizations] come to the Jewish community to talk about interfaith, while they still teach anti-Western and anti-Christian doctrines to their followers. Some of the leaders have even condoned suicide bombings in Israel and against American armed forces."

Her advice to American Jewish organizations who want to take part in interfaith activities: "Take time to learn who they are and what they're saying. It's more complicated than just respecting each other."

As for finding true moderates in the American Muslim community, Barsky said such organizations "have quite a way to go before they will have the level of organization" displayed by the extremist organizations. "So there's a moderate voice that hasn't been heard. But it's starting to be heard, and that's because of the anger over [organizations such as] CAIR claiming the mantle of leadership."
For example, organizations such as the Arizona-based American Islamic Forum for Democracy and the Washington-based Center for Islamic Pluralism are both new and "have gathered under their umbrella a number of moderate organizations."
As for combatting Islamic radicals in America, Barsky thinks Americans need to change the way they think about Wahhabi Islam.

"The United States has a hard time understanding the extremists' ideology. Americans don't like to interfere in the religion of other people. But the reality is that this isn't religion, but a politicized radical ideology. It's very dangerous," she warned, adding that the people who are being taught this ideology are prime targets for recruitment by terror organizations.

"If we don't understand that [these groups] are dangerous," she concluded simply, "we're going to suffer the consequences."

The New Black Plague

Plague: "Any widespread affliction, calamity or evil, esp. one regarded as a visitation from God; any cause of trouble or vexation." -- The Random House Dictionary of the English Language

It probably began in Central Asia and spread to Europe by the late 1340s. The total number of deaths worldwide from the pandemic is estimated at 75 million people; there were an estimated 25-50 million deaths in Europe. The Black Plague is estimated to have killed 30% to 60% of Europe's population. It may have reduced the world's population from an estimated 450 million to between 350 and 375 million in 1400.
And now it has returned in a new and even more virulent form...
it is called Islam.

A statement from Radarsite: I've reached my limit with Islam and Islamists. No more discussions. No more arguing with delusional or propagandist commenters; I'll just delete them. Actions speak louder than words and by their own actions the Muslims have defined themselves beyond refute. Islam is bound and determined to destroy our civilization -- not just some Muslims, not just some terrorists, but Islam itself; it is the Will of Allah. The time for debate has long past, they have killed it with their innumerable bloody acts. We must concentrate now on ridding ourselves of this parasitic evil presence in our midst. We must stamp it out and kill it. It is not a religion, it is not a movement; it is a plague and must be dealt with as such.

How can anyone support or defend a plague? You cannot reason with a plague, you can neither accommodate a plague nor appease it; you must eradicate it -- whatever it takes. First you must contain it; you must not allow it to spread. You must identify those who have been infected and isolate them from the rest of the population. Then you must systematically and ruthlessly root it out and destroy it.

This, I suggest, should be our new paradigm. The old one just doesn't work; it never really did.

Whomever came up with the idea of using the analogy of a War on Terror for our present troubles, as well-intentioned as they might have been, have in the long run done us a disservice. The parallel is inherently flawed, and people know it. People have a good idea of what war is, and this, whatever it might be, is certainly not a war. It is, admittedly, a tremendous societal upheaval, but it is not a war. As hard as we have tried to push this analogy on to the people, half of this country, and more than half of those people overseas, are just not buying it.

A war involves the movements of armies and navies, boundaries and maps. It presumes clear cut adversaries and allies. It is essentially a rather straight-forward contest between two or more combatants, usually (but not always) ending with the emergence of obvious winners and losers. During WWII, even as a kid I could quite easily follow the progress of the War on the maps on the front page of our daily paper. All you had to do was find the dotted line that separated the combatants: Yesterday the Allies were here and the Axis was there; and today the Allies have moved twenty miles to the east. Yesterday this particular island was in the hands of the Japs; today it is ours. Yeah!! This is the way we followed our War, on our maps; whether civilians or military, everybody had their maps. Kids had maps. The enemy had maps. This was how we -- and they -- determined success or failure. We followed the course of our War assiduously, until the flight of the Enola Gay once and for all obliterated our need of maps in that monumental conflict.

Even during that all-but-forgotten and quietly unpopular "Police Action", otherwise known as the Korean War, we could still rely on our maps to make some sense of it all. And in the end of course, everyone knew where the 39th Parallel was on that map of the Korean Peninsula, and they knew what it meant.

Then came Vietnam. And it soon became apparent that we could no longer follow the course of this confusing conflict on our maps -- at least not with that same ease and certainty we had before. The lines had become fuzzy and confused. Who was the real enemy, and where were they?

Today we are faced with one of the most deadly crises that the West in general and the United States in particular has ever faced. And our maps are of no value whatsoever. We are even less certain now who our real enemies are. Are they in this very room with us? Are they our new neighbors? How are we to tell who they are? And what if they don't yet know that they are our enemies? What if they have yet to declare themselves? If this is a War on Terror, then where the hell are the boundaries? Where is that dotted line?

No, I'm afraid that that inadequate paradigm just never really worked. It was unconvincing from the start. It was a bad idea.

So, it is time now for a new analogy, one that makes sense, one that we can believe in and use.

"Any widespread affliction, calamity or evil." What could better describe our present circumstances? We do not need our maps anymore. Not if we're fighting a plague."You must identify those who have been infected and isolate them from the rest of the population. Then you must systematically and ruthlessly root it out and destroy it." We do not need to worry about identifying our enemies; by their rhetoric and their actions those people afflicted with this deadly contagion will make themselves known to us. And then, all we have to do is act.

We can still act, can't we?

A Muslim Response to Fitna

Cross posted from Revolution
Hat tip to A Western heart:

Congratulations Geert. Your "fitna" movie has created more Mujaahideen amongst the Muslims
To Geert,
Verily, our religion will stay the same till the Day of Judgment. We are happy that there are people like you to expose themselves to the wrath of Allah. We are also happy because it makes us comfortable knowing that there are true enemies of Islaam as Allah has mentioned in the Qur’aan.
We are not interested in condemning this or condemning that, but we are interested in letting you know that Islaam will dominate all of Europe, including your hometown, and the Jizyah will be established upon your Country, leaving all of the disbelievers in humiliation until they come to Islaam. Let us remind that there are thousands of Muslims living near you; so always expect the unexpected.
Near the end of your film, you wrote,
For it is not up to me, but to Muslims themselves to tear out the hateful verses in the Qur’an.

This statement of yours proves a verse in the Qur’aan:

And never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you till you follow their Millah (way of life/form of religion). (2:120)

So by Allah’s grace, He has shown us another practical example of a Kaafir (i.e., that would be you Geert) who will never be pleased with the Muslims until we follow their form of religion.

By Allah, the only thing that we will tear is your heart, the heart of democracy, and the heart of those who fight the Muslims. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) promises dominance, and so we too promise dominance. And how will you be O Geert, when Prophet Jesus returns to earth from the heavens and destroys Christianity and wages Jihaad against the world successfully?

That time is coming very soon.

You also said,

The Government insists that you respect Islam, but Islam has no respect for you.

One can write volumes on this, but in short: Islaam doesn’t respect the disbelieving Governments.

You said,

Islam wants to rule, submit, and seeks to destroy our western civilization.


Just as your civilization seeks to destroy ours, our civilization seeks to devastate yours. Take a guess as to when we’ll stop.

You wrote,

Now the Islamic ideology has to be defeated.

As long as this world exists, you can never destroy the Islaamic ideology; and our ideology is meant for expansion.

You wrote,

Stop Islamisization, Defend our Freedom.

We say: stop democracy, and defend your basic human rights.

But we don’t hate you for your freedoms as we don’t consider those freedoms. We hate you for your disbelief and defiance.

So keep warning, and we too will keep warning. Islaam denounces Democracy, Islaam denounces Christians and Jews, Islaam denounces the corruption of the disbelievers upon the earth, and Islaam is coming to crush the armies of disbelief and smash the false governments and religions of the world to bring humanity from darkness into light.

Although we hate you for the sake of Allah and pray for your destruction, we are happy that you made this film because no matter how negative the disbelievers try to portray Islaam, in the end, it is Islaam that spreads far and wide. The media in America did its best to portray Islaam as an evil religion after the 9/11 attacks, but just look to how many thousands of people accepted Islaam after the invasion. So Islaam will spread all over Europe, and we will win in the end and we will humiliate you in the end.

Congratulations Geert. Your movie has created more Mujaahideen amongst the Muslims.

Egyptian cleric issues fatwa against Dr. Wafa Sultan

Help Wafa Sultan-Send a Letter to the Qatar Embassy about her Death Fatwa
March 29, 2008
by Jerry Gordon
Cross posted from Act For America
We posted on courageous Dr. Wafa Sultan's second al-Jazeera interview that included a debate with Egyptian Islamist, Tal'at Rheim on the republication of the Danish Mohammed cartoons. Subsequent to the March 4th Al-Jazeera interview, Egyptian Islamist Sheik al-Qaradawi issued a Fatwa against her. Sultan and her family have gone into hiding.
Our ally , Bob Spencer of Jihad Watch has called Sultan " a national and international treasure". Having met Dr. Sultan, we agree. Yesterday, we received emails from Joyce and Persia expressing concerns about the lack of 24/7 personal security protection for Dr.Sultan. Note that in Holland, Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders received 24/7 security from his government with the release of his important film, "Fitna".
Her safety is the equivalent of what the British government did for author Salman Rushdie when the Ayatollahs of the Islamic Republic of Iran issued a Fatwa calling for his death with the publication of his book, 'The Satanic Verses". Our government should consider doing the same for Dr. Sultan, an American citizen who is the subject of a death threat from an Islamist Cleric, Sheik al-Qarawadi. She asked us to help her by submitting a letter to the Embassy of Qatar. Qatar hosts the 24/7 Arab language satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera.
Submit your letter on the embassy site:
Click into " feedback."

Sultan has been forced into hiding and needs our help for her valued and courageous stands against radical Islamism.

Thank you for this heads up Act For America. This is an international disgrace which can not go uncontested. Here is a copy of Radarsite's letter to the Embassy of Qatar.

Dear Embassy of Qatar --I have for some time been under the impression that Qatar was one of those more enlightened and progressive Arab states, one of those ME countries where the possiblities exist for some kind of dialogue with the West, some kind of mutual understanding, that would forward both of our needs and hopes.

Unfortunately, It seems that I have been misled. You are not enlightened, you are not even in this era yet. You are still living in a backward-looking self-destructive paradigm that more rightly belongs to the Seventh Century than to the Twenty-First.

Even worse, it is not just that you refuse to see the light of civilization, you are actively engaged in trying to export your murderous darkness.

What, can you tell me, is the moral distinction between your "fatwa" calling for the death of a prestigious and respected American writer and an American style mob-sanctioned "hit'? Why should we treat with you any differently than we would treat with our criminal Mafia? There is no moral difference at all between you. There is no possible excuse for your brutal and antisocial behavior.

By this one outrageous act you have put the lie to all of those good works that you have done in your efforts to prove that you are worthy to join the modern world of Civilization and Reason. This one monstrous mistake in judgement has set you back years and years in the estimation of many Westerners -- and certainly in the minds of many Americans.

Unfortunately, despite your obvious wealth, and despite your grandious projects and ambitious plans for the future, you are not ready yet for assimilation into this Western world of light and freedom. You are not yet in this century.

Well, you can't have it both ways now, can you? You can't be welcomed into our world of light and modernity, and at the same time promise to murder one of our most admired and respected citizens with your illegal and immoral medieval fatwas.

Modern skylines do not a civilization make. It takes more than money and buildings. I'm sorry, but this latest outrage against the universal precepts of humanity and decency prove to us that you are still backward and poor, and in the words of T. E. Lawrence you are it seems unfortunately still "a little people".

The Sound of One Hand Clapping

This is a small tribute to those commenters who took the time to respond to my previous article "Fitna has finally pushed me over the edge."

As you have probably surmised, that article came straight from the heart with little second-thought. I was emotionally involved with it. I was angry and distraught. I still am. I just wrote it quickly and hit Publish. The hell with it.

I was pretty sure of the kind of negative response I'd get. And then -- all of those wonderful and heartening comments. I, for one, sure needed to read them. This can get so damn frustrating. I've lost friends over this, friends who think I'm obsessive and exaggerating things way out of proportion and are getting tired of listening to me talk about it. And most people just plain don't care. We're annoying them. We're yelling 'Fire!' in the crowded theater, and there's no fire, and we're interrupting their movie.

A friend and fellow blogger almost reached the point the other day where he thought he'd just quit trying. That thick wall of complacency we face is formidable and unyielding. No matter how sincere our passion, how cogent and persuasive are our arguments, they're quickly dismissed and brushed aside as something irrelevant to the really important things in life. Sometimes... it can get so discouraging --

But then, look what happens -- all those encouraging comments. I was wrong about the reactions. This article has been crossposted all over and so far not one person has found fault with either my reasoning, my conclusions or my emotions. Surprising, isn't it?

And, damn it, this is what makes it all worthwhile, isn't it? And this is why neither my fellow blogger nor myself will ever quit. Because we know we're not alone. We're not alone in our anger and our frustration and our feelings of impotence. YOU are out there. You are listening. And you care.

To you and my fellow bloggers and writers I want to say this: We have a mission, you and I, and we cannot let each other down, we cannot lose heart and allow ourselves to become discouraged. We have to believe that we can still make a difference.
And I know that we can.

Fitna has finally pushed me over the edge

"...the EU president said the film’s only purpose is to ‘incite hatred’."
By God, I sure hope it inspires some damn hatred. I'd say it's about damn time for some hatred. If we cannot conjure up hatred over the message of this seething indictment of Islam then we are hopelessly lost and the barbarians deserve to win.

Fitna had an overwhelming affect on me. I can't explain why. I've seen all of the images before, forced myself to watch the beheadings, listened to the hateful sermons. I read MEMRI every day. I write about it every day. But somehow, putting it all together, all the words and the voices and the images into this one relentless venue hit me right between the eyes and I will never be the same again. The enemy has spoken and I have heard them.

I have read the Qur'an, every awful page, and I've read a lot of other Islamist literature besides, but most importantly I've listened to our enemy speak and I've read their private letters and now, finally, I have gone over the edge. I've been approaching this precipice for weeks now, maybe months, but I always drew myself back at the last moment. What kept me back was my doubt, my doubt and my hope. I was still unsure of myself. Maybe there was still some way, some way that this horrible death cult could still somehow be integrated into our vital Western world of freedom and independent thought. But, it should be quite evident by now to even the most delusional liberal pacifists amongst us that Islam has no intention of being "integrated" into our liberal Western Society; it is bound by Allah to conquer and subdue this infidel world of ours, not meld into it. And anyone or anything that stands in the way of this divinely-ordained mission must be destroyed.

Fitna has pushed me over the edge and I can't come back even if I wanted to. I'm done with thinking about it. Islam is pure evil, that's all. Islam is the enemy. Islam is beyond repair or redemption or reform. Either we defeat Islam or we will perish. There is no middle ground, no room for compromise. Good Muslims are as irrelevant to this great impending confrontation as were good Nazis in 1933.

Unless we fight back they will win. Simple as that. They will either kill us or subject us to sharia law. No more time wasted in meaningless discussions with Islamist apologists over my alleged misinterpretations of the horrible Qur'an, no more trying to find common ground with our moderate enemies. I am not a fool. I do not misinterpret your actions, and your actions speak louder than your words. All I am interested in now is in defeating you and salvaging our beautiful but embattled civilization from your onslaught. For me, the time for debate has just passed. It passed with Fitna.

Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers.

This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else.

Reaction to Fitna, Part two: the New Post-Fitna Homeland Security Measures

The New Post-Fitna Homeland Security Measures

-- The inroads of Islam into the West will be shut down immediately. All Muslim immigration into the US must be stopped.
-- Islam will be defined as a terrorist doctrine and declared illegal in the US.
-- All mosques will be closed down at once and their imams deported.
-- Anyone who is in this country and preaching against this country and calling for its demise will be treated under the sedition laws -- already on the books -- and immediately deported or jailed.
-- All Islamic and/or Middle Eastern men or women will be profiled as routine police procedure, especially in our airports and public facilities.
--Any anti-semitic or anti-Christian statements will be treated as criminal and vigorously prosecuted without exception.
-- All illegal aliens will be rounded up and either jailed or deported.
-- Our borders will be closed and guarded with military forces.
-- All suspected terrorists will be subject to a speedy military tribunal -- as FDR did with all suspected subversives during WWII -- with absolutely no redress through our American jurisprudence system.
-- Anyone convicted of operating under the laws of a foreign entity, such as sharia law, which in any way conflicts with our own laws or our own historical traditions, or with our Constitutional Rights will be immediately subject to legal actions.
--Anyone who seeks in any way to curtail the legal rights of American females, or any foreign females within the jurisdiction of the US will be treated as a criminal in violation of our Constitution.

This would be a start. Will we do it?
Are you kidding? Of course not.

All we can do is to keep trying to ignite the firestorm of rebellion and hope that someday the winds turn in our direction.

Update: Fitna: the Movie was taken down from Liveleak's website because of specific deadly threats made by Muslims against their staff.

FITNA: My First Reaction

I'm overcome with emotion. How can I possibly put it all into words? All this outrage and anger and pent-up hatred -- and yes, it is hatred, hatred of Islam -- that's been building up in me over these past months and years? How can I possibly write some thoughtful analysis of this devastating blood-soaked film? I shouldn't even be writing about it now; I'm still too close to the fire. But I must write about it. We all must write about it and talk about it and vote about it.

A heroic man has put himself in lifelong jeopardy in order to bring us this small precious gift of white-hot fire. And now it's up to us. We can do nothing -- as we've been doing all these shameful years -- and this precious flame will slowly fade away and die. Or we can use it to ignite a cataclysmic firestorm of rebellion. This, then, is his gift to us, what he sacrificed himself to bring us, the one thing we've been unable to discover within our over civilized souls, yet the one thing that's absolutely essential to our survival. The fire, the passion --the WILL TO SURVIVE.

Absent this essential element we are rendered impotent. All of our vast wealth, all of that accumulated knowledge and scientific experience, that cutting-edge weaponry, all that goes into making us a superior civilization is utterly useless to us now without this one crucial ingredient: the WILL TO SURVIVE.

The WILL TO SURVIVE must now take absolute precedence over all other considerations and rationalizations and legalistic abstractions. It's too late for all that now. The WILL TO SURVIVE must now be predominant and constant and unassailable. The only alternative for us now is death. Death.

This, then, has been our Achilles Heel, our congenital flaw. The raw unquestioned power of the Will is determinate. And the enemy knows this; they've found our weakness and have exploited it mercilessly. And we, God help us, have let them -- are still letting them.

Geert Wilders has had the courage to unmask the face of the enemy. Now, do we have the WILL TO SURVIVE?

Jihad in east Londonistan

By Melanie Phillips
Cross posted from the Spectator

Sunday, 16th March 2008
I wrote yesterday about the attack on Canon Michael Ainsworth in his own east London churchyard by three ‘Asian’ youths. From the rather fuller stories about this incident in today’s papers, it is clear that this is far from the first such attack in the area. Indeed, there appear to have been many attacks on vicars or churches by Muslims who are clearly intent on turning east London into a no-go area for Christians (and, given treatment of the Jewish group visiting the area on Holocaust Remembrance Day, for Jews as well.

The jihadi nature of the attack on Canon Ainsworth, who was taken to hospital after being kicked and punched in the head when he asked three ‘Asian’ youths who had gathered in the churchyard of the ancient church of St George-in-the-East to quieten down, is unmistakeable. The Mail on Sunday reports that the church has regularly had windows smashed by youths - who on one occasion shouted: ‘This should not be a church, this should be a mosque.’…In another attack on the church, families were showered with glass when a brick was thrown through a window during a service. Mr Allan Ramanoop, a member of the Parochial Church Council, said often parishioners were too scared to challenge the gangs. The Asian church member, who lives nearby, said: ‘I've been physically threatened and verbally abused on the steps of the church'.

On one occasion, youths shouted: “This should not be a church, this should be a mosque, you should not be here”. I just walked away from it - you are too frightened to challenge them. We have church windows smashed two to three times a month. The youths are anti-Christian.’ … The Reverend Alan Green, Area Dean for Tower Hamlets, said it was the latest in a series of ‘faith hate’ crimes in the borough… ‘There are one or two incidents of faith hate every month across the borough and across all faiths’.

The Sunday Telegraph further reported:
A survey of London clergy by National Churchwatch, which provides personal safety advice, found that nearly half said they had been attacked in the previous 12 months. The organisation suggested that vicars should consider taking off their dog collars when they are on their own.

Prophet Muhammad: Time Traveler

Written by: Evrvigint (Shane Borgess)
Wednesday, March 26th, 2008
Cross posted from Political Vindication:

Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi was visiting the country of Uganda recently, there to celebrate the opening of the Gadaffi National Mosque. It was a week before Easter, so naturally he couldn’t resist declaring that the bible was a forgery. How does he know this? Because nowhere in the book does it mention the Islamic prophet Muhammad. He charges that his name was erased from the holy book, which obviously makes the prophet a time traveler as well as a leader of slaughtering armies. What’s educational about his remarks is not so much the shameless ignorance on display, but the example it offers those who still protest that there isn’t any difference between the major religions today, arguing that they’re all pernicious. The righteous reaction by Ugandan Christians speaks volumes about Christianity:

Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, who had already denounced Col. Gadaffi’s claims during Good Friday prayers at Nakivubo War Memorial Stadium, the place where Col. Gadaffi had made his claims, asked Christians to forgive and forget.

“I ask fellow Christians to forgive Gadaffi like Jesus forgave those people who crucified him on the cross,” he said in his sermon to hundreds of Christians that turned out for Easter prayers at Rubaga Cathedral.

The prelate told his congregation that Christians should not waste time on Col. Gadaffi’s remarks, saying “there are more important issues to talk about”. Namirembe Bishop Samuel Balagadde Ssekadde asked the government to give “terms of reference” to foreign dignitaries who are potentially divisive.

“We should pray for such people who don’t know that in Uganda, we have an Inter-religious Council that unites us regardless of our religious differences. Muslims and Christians live harmoniously without any problem,” he said.

In his sermon at Namboole Stadium, Kampala Pentecostal Church’s pastor Gary Skinner called on the faithful to shun all forms of sectarianism if they are to promote peace and stability in Uganda.

“The remarks Gadaffi made were unfortunate and we rather forgive him, because Islam is an intolerant religion,” he said. Another KPC pastor, Chris Komagum, said Col. Gadaffi’s intention was to confuse, predicting that the Libyan leader “will find difficulties in coming back to Uganda.”

Rubaga Miracle Centre Cathedral’s pastor Robert Kayanja said: “This man [Gadaffi], who came here and abused our holy book, has made us learn one thing: unity. We have to start seeing ourselves as Christians. Our enemies are organised and they have money.” Preaching at his Rubaga-based church, Mr Kayanja said it is time for Christians, who are the majority in Uganda, to find economic emancipation. Christians account for more than 80 per cent of Uganda’s 28 million people.

Let’s reflect upon a different scenario. The Ugandan president travels to Libya to open up a new Christian church and announces that the Quran is a forgery because no where in it does it mention Jerusalem. Does he leave the country alive? How many die in riots and terrorist attacks inspired by such ‘blasphemy’? We have seen the Friday mobs in the Islamic world writhing in malevolent outrage over innocuous cartoons or a teddy bear named Mo; is it unreasonable to predict wide-eyed barbarism launched by mullahs who teach their followers that their God is such an presumptuous imbecile that he can’t abide insubordination? If we are supposed to act Godly in our daily lives, it is no wonder that so many in the Middle East rage like children denied - their God is not the pinnacle of wisdom and forbearance, but much less. He’s all too human, aroused by human frailties and prejudices until he’s covered in the shame of his subjects. Until Islam matures, and moderate Muslims reject this celestial bully, those that oppress and murder in his name will be the face the world recognizes.

Today, Uganda finds the face staring back at them is the primitive face of seventh century Islam: Muammar Gadaffi.

The New Barbarians

"Not surprisingly the author is N. American, a continent grown incontinent after 9/11 and where most people's knowledge of Europe fits snugly on the back of a very small stamp."
"The average American citizen doesn't care about the world's problems, they only care about what brand of shoes they wear...sad but true!"

-- Recent comment from a British website

Really? I, for one, have grown sick and tired of these false and deceptive Old World arguments eagerly put forth against our great country, sick of the dishonest and transparent ruse of comparing the lowest forms of our American culture to the highest forms of some other culture in order to make the point that America is degrading the native cultures of the world. Too many pictures of those tacky MacDonald's Golden Arches in Cairo or those blaring Coke signs in Rome. We didn't exactly force this on you, you know? We didn't twist your delicate arms until you cried Uncle. If you didn't want this materialistic glitter, it wouldn't be there. Simple as that. You despise our degenerate culture yet you adore our fantasy Disneylands.

But, what about all those other things? What about all those tremendous advances in medicine, science, technology, and the arts? What of our long honorable history of unparalleled generosity? What of all those war torn countries -- many of whom were our bitterest enemies -- who, through our open-hearted generosity were saved from utter collapse and ruin? What of our fashionably despised and dishonored military who, if they had not taken up their honorable duty in Britain and in Europe and tolerated the condescending insults from the very people they were protecting, who would have fallen under the boot of brutal Fascist or Communist tyrannies long ago and more than once?

Yet of course you despise us for this, you despise the strength that protects you. Why then not forswear our help and turn to that ever-more-hopelessly conflicted and useless UN for your protection? Or put your trust in that comically befuddled military power of the EU? The answer of course is simple. You need us. You need our protection and you despise us for that fact.

You love our inane glitzy Hollywood culture and of course you despise us for that, too. You look down your pinched noses at our pedestrian morays, but you would sell your grandmother for a shot on American Idol. Your pervasive multicultural absurdities have led you to eagerly embrace the blatant lie of Muslim moral superiority -- despite all of the buckets of bloody evidence to the contrary. You have meekly acquiesced to a degenerate belief system that attempts to equate the embarrassment of a Britney Spears to the beheading of a Daniel Pearl. And you are proud of your cowardice and call it a shining example of tolerance and open-mindedness. You have refined yourself out of reality, and the delicate and precious world that you have constructed in its place will shatter about you like glass at the very first assault.

Simply put, you are dishonoring the honorable heritage of your brave grandparents, you are losing your will to fight back and thereby losing your precious and honorable society, yet you have the pomposity to attempt to condescend to our strong and brave America, whose soldiers are fighting and dying all over this violent world for other people's freedoms. You insult us and you degrade us. And you rest assured in the comfortable conviction that you are somehow inherently intellectually and morally superior to us.

Well, this particular Yank, who has spent his whole adult life studying, is getting a little fed up with taking these innumerable snide remarks from a little people who haven't shown the backbone or courage to save their own wonderful country from this growing onslaught of brutal barbarians. To appease your oppressors and save your precious hides, you have turned your backs on your own heroic sons, like the brave Lionheart, and criminalized his honesty and driven him from his home. You have embraced the cowardice of Chamberlain as your role model, and attempted to disguise your weaknesses by pretending that they are some higher form of civilized behavior called Multiculturalism.

We, then, the rude Yanks, are the new barbarians now. Yet, how then is it that somehow we have managed to accumulate more symphony orchestras than any other two European countries combined? more successful operas, more successful ballets, more internationally recognized artists and authors than any other country in this hemisphere? And why is it that this crass, unlettered public of ours, who is only interested in what brand of shoes they wear, works harder and puts in more hours and takes less vacations than any of those feeble and declining unionized socialistic European workers wallowing in their increasingly failing and stagnant economies could ever conceive of?

Through our good-hearted but misguided generosity we have become a paradigm of East Berlin in reverse -- we are being forced to build walls to keep out the daily onslaught of frantic and desperate invaders who besiege our degenerate nation daily, literally dying and selling their very bodies to just get one foot into our detestable imperialistic country -- to grab hold of that slim chance that perhaps today, if they're lucky, and if they don't get raped or robbed or sold off into prostitution rings, they just might make it past the border control and find a place here to live and perhaps find a little hope and happiness. These desperate people put the lie to all of those self-serving intellectual bullsh*t arguments about the declining moral promise of America or the unjust system of our government daily with their own blood.

For at least two generations now we Americans have been taking it on the chin from ignorant, self-righteous student activists and disillusioned psuedo-intellectuals brought up on that pervasive academic witches brew of those Marxist-driven, Moscow coordinated sanctimonious and cynically manipulated student protest movements of the 60s. We -- and you -- are now living with the bitter fruits of their destructive labors. Cynicism and disillusionment have become a refined art form throughout Old Europe and the UK, the motley uniform of the latest anti-capitalist, anti-American, antiwar avant-garde. To be wise is to be cynical, distrustful, and anti-American -- only trailer park bumpkins are unthinkingly patriotic, only the uninformed, unwashed, beer-drinking chain-smokers are to be seen saluting the American flag without embarrassment.

Your house is on fire, yet somehow you manage to find the time to come over here and criticize our garden.

Here is the hard truth and it’s high time we faced it. Whether we ultimately leave Iraq or not, the war that we have had thrust upon us will continue. For it is not just about Iraq or Afghanistan; it is not just about Al-Qaeda. This war is not about what we have done or not done in the Middle East. This war that we are in is a war against a culture, the hate-driven 15th century, pride/revenge male warrior culture of the Arab world (in which I include Iran). Whether we choose to see it this way or not, the facts remain that we are, indeed, in the midst of a virtual Clash of Civilizations. There is nothing more dangerous in a time of war than underestimating your enemy.

Study: Iran Indoctrinating Children in Islamic Supremacism

From the New York Sun:

Staff Reporter of the Sun
March 19, 2008

WASHINGTON — A new Freedom House study of Iranian textbooks finds that the Islamic Republic is teaching its children to embrace Islamic supremacism, preparing them to enter a political system that discriminates against women and non-Muslims.

The study, "Discrimination and Intolerance in Iran's Textbooks," is the most comprehensive to date of Iran's textbooks, analyzing 95 compulsory textbooks for grades one to 11. The main author of the study, Saeed Paivandi, is a sociologist at Paris-8 University and one of the few Western scholars to specialize in Iran's post-revolutionary education system.

"The discourse of the textbooks has not been written with the concept of equality of all human beings, as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights," the study concludes. "In the textbooks' reasoning, human beings cannot be equal with one another on this earth, in the same way that, on the day of reckoning, they will be subject to divine judgment for their identity and actions. The trend, based on the clear and official negation of the equality of human beings, created different positions for the various people in society. Some individuals are born first-class citizens, due to their identity, gender, and way of thinking, while others become second- and third-class citizens. Those who are excluded from the inside are victims of this discriminatory system."

That system inside Iran has led to a raft of laws that prohibit non-Muslims from holding high government and military posts, enforce a quota of non-Muslims allowed to matriculate at universities, and require non-Muslim shopkeepers to designate their stores as such. But the lessons of Islamic supremacism also applies to Iran's foreign policy, which the American government says is to support terrorist groups throughout the Middle East. For example, the Islamic culture religious studies textbook for eighth-grade instructs, "Defensive jihad is incumbent upon every one, the young and the old, men and women, everyone, absolutely everyone, must take part in this sacred battle, fight to the best of his or her abilities or assist our fighters."

A seventh-grade textbook on the same subject says: "By taking note of the guidance and instructions provided by Islam, every Muslim youth must strike fear in the hearts of the enemies of God and their people through combat-readiness and skillful target shooting. He must always be ready to defend his country, honor, and faith and use all his capabilities and power in this endeavor. After the victory of the revolution, His Holiness Imam Khomeini, the deceased leader of the Islamic revolution, issued an order for the establishment of the basij (paramilitary group) for the oppressed."

The report places the present school curriculum in Iran in the context of the country's ancient tradition of religious Muslim schools but finds major differences between the two. Iran's modern school curriculum, for example, teaches secular topics such as science and political history, while the Khomeinist doctrine of the state runs through these subjects, as well. On lessons on world history, the textbooks emphasize a unity with fellow Islamic republics.

The textbooks also enforce a strict view that women should be at home raising children. A 10th-grade textbook for religion and life says, "A mother whose husband earns sufficient income cannot say, 'My job demands that I leave my child at the day care center every day,' and, in this way deprive her child from her constant love and attention."

While the textbooks recognize other religious groups in Iran, including Jews, they refer to followers of the Bahai faith as members of a cult.

The Freedom House study is not the first review of Iranian textbooks. Last year a Jerusalem-based think tank, the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education, did its own review, which concluded that Iran was preparing children to become radical martyrs. The Freedom House study takes a broader approach to the textbooks, but it also finds that martyrdom is encouraged in grades one through 11.

"In the Farsi textbooks of Grades 1 through 11, 31 lessons discuss martyrdom and death for the sake of religious or political beliefs. These lessons are mostly biographies or autobiographies of important religious figures of the past, including soldiers and officers of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution and the basij (paramilitary group)," the Freedom House study says.

We are not fighting a political movement. We are not fighting a religious movement.
We are fighting a culture.

National Black Republican Association Takes on Obama

Cross posted from
Permalink URL:

Note from Radarsite: Although the term "must read" may at times be overused, this is one article that certainly deserves that critique. It is important, not just for what it discloses about Obama, but because of the undeniable legitimacy of its source.

By Frances Rice / National Black Republican Association.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Frances Rice Chairwoman NBRA
In his Philadelphia speech on race, Senator Barack Obama justified his 20-year relationship with his anti-American pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, by castigating as racist a host of people, including his own white grandmother who he later lambasted as a “typical white” racist. Conspicuously omitted from Obama’s culpability list is the architect of modern day racism—the Democratic Party.

Obama’s failure to even mention the Democratic Party’s racist past, while confessing that he lied about when he first heard Rev. Wright’s hateful rants, calls into question Obama’s character and judgment. The shocking words of Rev. Wright can be heard by viewing the video at: Without flinching, Rev. Wright damned his own country, declaring that innocent Americans deserved to be killed by Islamic terrorists on September 11, 2001.

Since Obama refuses to end his ties to Rev. Wright and has put forth a false face as a presidential candidate, we need to look behind the mask and examine his past to see the real Barack Obama.

Obama’s Slave-owning Relatives
Notably, in his speech, Obama mentioned the slavery history of the family of his wife, Michelle. He failed to say one word about the unsavory slave-owning past of his own white relatives. Historical records uncovered by researchers and posted on the Internet at: that Obama’s maternal forbearers were slaveholders. In fact, one of Obama’s ancestors, George Washington Overall, owned two slaves as is recorded in the Nelson County, Kentucky 1850 Census. The same records show that another one of Obama’s ancestors, Mary Duvall, also owned two slaves. All of Obama’s slave-owning forbearers were Democrats.

Obama, following in the footsteps of his white ancestors, is also part of the Democratic Party that: (1) fought to keep blacks in slavery; (2) started the Ku Klux Klan to lynch and terrorize Republicans—black and white; (3) passed the discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws; (4) fought every piece of civil rights legislation from the 1860’s to the 1960’s; and (5) attacked Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other civil rights protesters with skin-burning fire hoses and vicious dogs.

Another little known fact
While hiding the racist past of the Democratic Party, Obama refuses to give credit to the Republican Party that: (1) started in 1854 as the anti-slavery party and fought to free blacks from slavery; (2) amended the Constitution to grant blacks freedom, citizenship and the right to vote; (3) started the NAACP to stop the Democrats from lynching blacks; (4) passed the civil rights laws of the 1860’s that were overturned by the Democrats when they took over Congress in 1892; (5) founded the HBCUs; (6) started affirmative action enforcement in 1969 to help blacks get jobs and contracts based on merit; and (7) fought the Democrats for over six decades until Republicans finally achieved passage of the civil rights laws of the 1950’s and 1960’s under the leadership of Republican Senator Everett Dirksen of Illinois.

It defies logic for Democrats to claim that, after Republicans spent over 100 years fighting the Democrats on behalf of blacks and finally won, all the racist Democrats suddenly rushed into the Republican Party. In fact, those racist Democrats declared that that they would rather vote for a “yellow dog” than a Republican because the Republican Party was known as the party for blacks. Facts about the racist past of the Democratic Party can be found in such books as A Short History of Reconstruction by Dr. Eric Foner, Unfounded Loyalty by Rev. Wayne Perryman, Bamboozled by Angela McGlowan, and Wrong on Race by Bruce Bartlett.

The Black Republican
Exposed in these books are the facts that the chief opponents of the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act were Democrat Senators Sam Ervin, Albert Gore, Sr. and Robert Byrd, a former member of the Ku Klux Klan. Democrat President Lyndon Johnson is applauded as a proponent of civil rights. However, in his 4,500-word State of the Union Address delivered on January 4, 1965, Johnson mentioned scores of topics for federal action, but only thirty five words were devoted to civil rights. He did not mention one word about voting rights.

Democrat President John F. Kennedy is lauded as a civil rights advocate. In reality, Kennedy voted against the 1957 Civil rights Act while he was a senator, as did Democrat Senator Al Gore, Sr. After he became president, John F. Kennedy opposed the 1963 March on Washington by Dr. King that was organized by A. Phillip Randolph who was a black Republican. President Kennedy, through his brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy, had Dr. King wiretapped and investigated by the FBI on suspicion of being a Communist in order to undermine Dr. King.

In an effort to shift the racist past of the Democratic Party to the Republican Party, Democrats point a finger at Republican President Richard Nixon for his so-called “Southern Strategy.” These same Democrats expressed no concern when the racially segregated South voted solidly for Democrats; yet unfairly deride Republicans because of the thirty-year odyssey of the South switching to the Republican Party that began in the 1970’s. Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” was an effort on his part to get fair-minded people in the South to stop voting for Democrats who did not share their values and were discriminating against blacks. Georgia did not switch until 2004, and some Southern states are still controlled by Democrats, including Louisiana until the 2007 election of Republican Bobby Jindal, a person of color.

Democrats also castigate Senator Trent Lott for his remarks about Senator Strom Thurmond in a blatant attempt to unfairly paint the Republican Party as a racist party. Where was the outrage when Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd praised former Ku Klux Klanner Democrat Senator Robert Byrd as someone who would have been “a great senator for any moment,” including the Civil War. Notably, Senator Thurmond was never in the Ku Klux Klan and, after he became a Republican, defended blacks against lynching and the discriminatory poll taxes imposed on blacks by Democrats. If Senator Byrd and Senator Thurmond were alive during the Civil War, and Byrd had his way, Thurmond would have been lynched.

Obama’s Muslim Connections
While not denying the basic facts about his Muslim connections, Obama and his defenders parse words, Clintonesque style, in a blatant attempt to discredit anyone who raises the issue. It’s important to scrutinize Obama’s Muslim background to determine if his Islamic past influences his decisions and actions toward America, including his decision to select an anti-American pastor as his spiritual advisor.
Obama readily exhibits his disdain for our country by refusing to wear an American flag lapel pin, and the video showing him making this anti-American declaration can be seen at: Obama was also photographed with his back turned to our flag and his hands clasped defiantly in front of him during the saying of the pledge of allegiance, and that video can be seen at: Now that his relationship with Rev. Wright has been exposed, Obama is trying to deceive the public by giving speeches with American flags being used as props in the background.
To more fully understand the extent of Obama’s Muslim experiences and how this connection influences his attitude about America, we need to examine some basic, undisputed facts.
Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii, and his full name is Barack Hussein Obama. He is named after his father who was born on the shores of Lake Victoria in Alego, Kenya. Obama’s father was raised as a Muslim and married a white American woman, Anna Dunham of Wichita, Kansas while both were students at the University of Hawaii. Obama’s parents divorced when he was two years old, and when he was six years old, his mother married an Indonesian oil company executive named Lolo Soetoro, who was also a Muslim and who introduced Obama to Islam.
The family moved to Jakarta, Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim country, where they lived for five years from1968 through 1973. Obama first attended a Catholic school for three years. In that school’s documents, Obama is listed under the name Barry Soetoro as an Indonesian citizen, and his religion is listed as Islam. Later, Obama attended a Muslim school where he received Islamic religious training before he was sent back to America to live with his maternal grandmother while his mother and his half-sister, Maya, stayed in Indonesia.
Obama’s half brothers and sisters in Nairobi, Kenya are Muslims. His step-grandmother, Sarah Hussein Obama, is a lifelong Muslim who said: “I am a strong believer of the Islamic faith.” In an April 30, 2007 New York Times interview, Obama’s half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng who now lives in Hawaii, said: “My whole family was Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim.”
Obama, while describing his 1992 wedding, admitted that he was proud of his brother, Roy, who chose Islam over Christianity. “The person who made me proudest of all,” Obama wrote, “was Roy. Actually, now we call him Abongo, his Luo name, for two years ago he decided to reassert his African heritage. He converted to Islam, and has sworn off pork and tobacco and alcohol.”
If Obama were not a Muslim from the time his religion was recorded in Indonesia as Islam until he “converted” to Christianity, then what was he for 27 years? We, as citizens, have a right to know this information about the man who wants to be our next president.

Obama’s Legislative Actions
Considering Obama’s Islamic connections, it is not surprising that he introduced a bill in Illinois called “Islamic Community Day” which proclaimed that November 1, 1997 would be the South Shore Islamic Community Center Day.
Obama’s other legislative actions in Illinois demonstrate that he is a liberal Democrat who puts left-wing ideology before the best interest of the people.
Incredibly, Obama opposed four times the Born Alive Infant Protection Act that would have prohibited a baby that was born alive from being left to die, simply because the mother said she wanted the baby to die. He also sided with the Democratic Party’s radical pro-abortion special interest group by opposing a bill that defines as a “person” a fully born baby who survives an abortion.
Obama was the only member of the Illinois Senate who voted against a bill that prohibited the early release of sexual predators. He also refused to vote for a bill that would have increased penalties for drug traffickers. Obama voted against a bill that made it a criminal offense for convicts to have contact with a street gang while out of jail on bail or on probation. He even voted against a bill that would have delivered the death penalty to gang members who murder first responders. Obama sent a shock wave throughout the state of Illinois when he voted to make a criminal out of a homeowner who was forced to use a gun to defend himself in his own home.
As a US senator, Obama voted against the minimum wage bill. Now, Obama is on the presidential campaign trail promising to increase the minimum wage. What a hypocrite.

Obama and Black Poverty
Obama, in his Philadelphia speech, loudly denounced the deplorable conditions in black communities. Yet, he said not one word about the fact that those communities have been run by Democrats for the past 40 years. The socialist policies of the Democrats have fostered a culture of dependency on government handouts and turned those communities into economic and social wastelands. Obama also rails against the failure to educate black children. However, he gives a pass to teachers’ union special interest groups that are responsible for black children not being educated. Those groups are aligned with the Democratic Party and are against school choice opportunity scholarships that would help black parents get their children out of failing schools. Liberal teachers act against the best interest of black children because they want to keep control of the buildings, and thus the money, but the money belongs to the people, not the buildings.
The root cause of the grinding poverty in black communities that is ignored by Obama is well documented by black Democrat Juan Williams in his book entitled Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-End Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America.

Comments by Juan Williams about how Obama, a rich, half-white Harvard educated man, is using the black community for partisan political gain can be seen at:
The sad truth is that Obama is one of those phony, socialist Democrats who wants to push on the rest of America the failed socialist policies that have devastated black communities.

Obama and Corruption
Just coming to light are the sleazy facts about Obama’s relationship and shady real estate deal with Antoin “Tony” Rezko, the Arab-American fundraiser and immigrant from Syria. Rezko has been a friend of Obama’s since his days at Harvard, and Rezko was recently indicted for corruption, found guilty and sent to prison.
The details of the Obama-Rezko deal are astonishing and involve the purchase of Obama’s Edwardian-style mansion in Kenwood, an up-scale section of Chicago where Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan also lives. When Obama sought to buy the grand house, the former owner refused to sell unless Obama also agreed to buy the adjoining land which Obama apparently could not afford. Obama’s friend, Rezko, came to the rescue and bought the adjoining land for $625,000, even though the property could not be accessed from the public street. This cleared the way for Obama to buy the mansion for $1,650,000, about $300,000 less than the asking price. Then, six months later, Obama bought one-sixth of Rezko’s property for $104,500. All of these financial dealings raise questions about whether Rezko subsidized the purchase of Obama’s mansion in violation of ethical rules.
Also, campaign contribution records show that Rezko made substantial contributions to Obama’s 2000 campaign for Congress. A recent report in a British newspaper, The Times, shows that in May 2005, Rezko was loaned $3.5 million by Fintrade Services, a Panamanian company controlled by Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born British billionaire. This is the undeclared loan that landed Obama’s friend and bagman, Rezko, in jail.
We ignore the stench of corruption that surrounds Obama at our peril.

As citizens, we must ask ourselves whether Obama has the character and judgment to be our president. Unfortunately, the answer is no.
